New Heroine Headshot: Félicie Le Bras from “Ballerina”

Here’s another Heroine Headshot. This time, it’s Félicie Le Bras, the heroine from Ballerina (AKA Leap), a 2016 French-Canadian 3D animated film. Ballerina is a tale about a Victorian-era orphan who goes to Paris in an attempt to fulfil her dream of joining the prestigious Paris Opera as a dancer. I’ve been aware of Ballerina for quite a while, and I thought it looked like a fun film, but when I finally saw it for the first time a few days ago, I was quite impressed. It’s a beautifully animated film, and its art style and humour reminded me quite a lot of bande dessinées (i.e. Franco-Belgian comics, such as Asterix), which I’ve always been a fan of. It does have a few modern pop songs in it, which I found a bit jarring, but that is my one and only gripe. Overall, I thought it was a great film, and Félicie, who is a bundle of cheerful energy, is simply adorable.😊

Note: there seems to be a bit of confusion about Félicie’s family name, but since she is a French character, I chose to refer to her by the name she is given in the French version.

My Bae, in Her Beret

I’m having lots of fun playing the Resident Evil 3 remake by CAPCOM., staring my favourite game character of all time, Jill Valentine!😁

“Resident Evil 3” Remake Demo Out Now!

The remake of Resident Evil 3 (by CAPCOM) will be released in two weeks time, but a short demo is available to play now! I just finished it a few minutes ago, and boy does it look great. The devastated Racoon City has been beautifully rendered (if that makes sense), and, of course, Jill Valentine looks absolutely divine! I cannot wait to play the full game.😄

Oh, by the way, I did like the meta-referencial posters in the demo…

Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊

Daily Heroine: Princess Zelda

Today’s Daily Heroine is: Princess Zelda, from the The Legend of Zelda series of Japanese video games, for the most part produced by Nintendo. The Legend of Zelda series has quite a long history: there have been well over twenty games in it, the first of which was released way back in 1986. Princess Zelda has appeared in most of these games, often as a damsel in the distress, and her appearance has varied greatly over the years, from very cartoony, to tall and regal. In my opinion the best-looking Princess Zelda is the latest version of her, from The Breath of the Wild, which was released in 2017. The wallpaper you can see above is from this particular game. I haven’t had the chance to play it yet, but I certainly hope I will be able to one day.

I’m always on the look out for new interesting and likeable heroines, so if you have a particular favourite, please tell me about her! Till tomorrow, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you..😊

Daily Heroine: Yoko Tsuno

Today’s Daily Heroine is: Yoko Tsuno, the adventurous engineer from an ongoing series of “comics albums”, created by Belgian comic artist Roger Leloup. According to Wikipedia, The Yoko Tsuno series currently consists of nearly thirty albums (plus a novel), the first of which was published in 1972. Once again, this is a series I’ve only just scratched the surface of, but I find it quite appealing. Its art style and plots are very reminiscent of The Adventures of Tintin, which I’ve always been a big fan of. And that is not surprising when you consider that Mr Leloup worked for Hergé (Tintin’s creator) early in his career. So I guess Yoko Tsuno can be considered a spiritual successor to Tintin.🙂

The cover you can see is from the first album of the Cinebook edition of the Yoko Tsuno series, titled On the Edge of Life, which was first published in 2007. However, chronologically the first album is actually The Curious Trio. For some reason, Cinebook is publishing the series out of order.

I’m always on the look out for new interesting and likeable heroines, so if you have a particular favourite, please tell me about her! Till tomorrow, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you.😊
