Anime (Spoiler-Free) Review: Lupin the Third: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine

Rightstuf synopsis:

She’s a thief. A killer. A saint and a scandal. She’s whatever you need her to be to get the job done. After sizing you up with one sinful glance, she disarms you with a touch. You’re powerless to resist. She’s walking seduction, with an insatiable itch for the priceless and a fetish for mischief. She takes your breath away to get what she wants. She takes everything else just because she can. And when she finally meets the master thief known as Lupin, will this be a star-crossed rivalry or a bloody betrayal? It’s all in a night’s work for the woman called Fujiko Mine.

Who’s your favorite Sonic the Hedgehog voice?

See the source image

In these past couple of weeks, we have had some exciting Sonic news. We’re getting some new Sonic content in Sega games, an updated remastered version of Sonic Colors and a brand new Sonic project game for 2022. Plus, Netflix is currently working on a brand new animated series called Sonic Prime for next year. Just like the title says, I want to start this fun discussion article with this question: who is your favorite Sonic voice?

Sonic is a very popular character in Sega’s franchise. He first started off in 1991 in the video games, but then later evolved throughout in media such as anime, cartoons, comics and even a live action movie. While there are different versions of Sonic, there is also many voices for this blue hero. When it comes voices, I am more familiar with the video game versions and also the movie from 2020.

Ryan Drummond

Making his grand debut in 1998, Ryan lends his voice as Sonic in Sega’s last console, the Dreamcast and in the game Sonic Adventure. As time passes, Ryan would later voice Sonic again in other Dreamcast games such as Sonic Adventure 2 and Sonic Shuffle. His last roles as Sonic was in 2004 where he voices him again in Sonic Heroes, Sonic Advance 3 and Sega Superstars. I really like his voice and I felt like his voice was fitting. It made Sonic sound confident despite the odds against him. He almost sounds like a leader among his group and he always had his trust on his friends.

Jason Griffith

Sonic X" Sonic vs. Shadow (TV Episode 2005) - IMDb

Another favorite voice I like is Jason Griffith. Ryan’s voice for Sonic didn’t last long, but he did leave an impact for the fans. Jason first started voicing Sonic in 2003 when the anime Sonic X launched in America; in video games he voiced Sonic in 2005 in games such as Shadow the Hedgehog and Sonic Rush. Not only he did Sonic, but he also voiced Shadow the Hedgehog and Jet the Hawk. Jason voiced in many iconic games such as Sonic 2006, Sonic Unleashed and even the storybook games like The Secret Rings and The Black Knight. According to Wikipedia, his last role as Sonic was in 2010 where he voiced as Sonic in the racing game Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing. For a Sonic game, it was in 2009 where he was in Sonic and the Black Knight and Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games. Jason’s voice was another great choice for Sonic. Not only for Sonic, but Jason’s voice was in my opinion very versatile. He could either sound like an upbeat hedgehog, a hardcore distant hedgehog or a cocky hawk. I especially like his Werehog voice in Unleashed. Sonic as a Werehog made Sonic sound intimating. As a kid, I always imagine Werehog Sonic sounding like Super Saiyan 4 Goku’s voice.

Roger Craig Smith

Besides voicing Chris Redfield in Resident Evil and Ezio in Assassin’s Creed 2, Roger is currently the blue hedgehog in video games. Making his Sonic game debut, he showed in 2010 and worked on games such as Sonic Generations, Sonic Colors, and Sonic Forces. He also voiced animated series Sonic Boom along with the games with it. Surprisingly in the past news, it was revealed Roger was going to step down as Sonic, but then in a surprise turn of events, he returned in the past weeks. Like the rest, I grew fond of this Sonic voice. Roger’s voice made Sonic sound so cool and made his character feel like he could call your bro. I can’t wait to see what he does in the future in Sonic projects.

Ben Schwartz

See the source image

Not in a video game, this voice made an appearance in 2020. Actor and voice actor Ben Schwartz takes the shoes of Sonic in the big screen. Ben has appeared in TV shows and cartoons such as Parks and Recreation, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the current/reboot Ducktales. I may not have seen/heard all of his works, but I think he fits well as Sonic. His voice is perfect for the teenage Sonic. This Sonic conveys a variety of emotions from being happy and ecstatic to scared and concerned. This voice shows that Sonic is young and inexperienced in the movie where he is excited to learn everything, but whole also showing negative emotions when he deals with loneliness. I can’t wait to hear Ben’s voice again in the sequel.

These are my favorite voices for Sonic. Which ones are your favorites?

Friday Funny 320: Texas Anime

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome everyone for a new episode and the beginning of June. It’s me Matthew and I am here to give you a new episode filled with memes! I hope everyone is drinking enough water and staying in cool places because we are in June. I hope everyone had a good Memorial Day. Now that we are in June, Summer is getting close. Also, don’t forget that Father’s Day will be approaching this month too. Be prepared for the new week because Disney Plus will be streaming the first episode of Marvel’s TV show Loki this Wednesday. Speaking of Disney, I recently saw the movie Cruella this past Sunday. Surprisingly, this movie was entertaining and it was cool to see a different perspective on a Disney villain. Last but not least, if you have a PS5, get ready for some PS5 titles. While this one was released last year, PS5 owners will get a huge upgrade and the other is a brand new game from the people who made the Spider-Man game. Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade and Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart will be released on June 10 and 11.

May 2021 Funko Pop Haul

Greetings Pop lovers, it’s me Matthew and I am once again to showcase you my overall progress of my Funko Pop collection. In case you didn’t know, I made it 100 figures. Can you guess how much will I have in total by the end of this post?

101. Marvel Studios Thanos (Hot Topic exclusive)

Excuse me for the picture quality, but here is a picture of the Mad Titan, Thanos from the Marvel universe. I got this figure from Hot Topic thanks to some Hot Cash I saved for shopping. This Thanos is based on the MCU films and it’s part of the 10th Anniversary of the MCU. Before he was well-known for wiping half the population, he was well-known for sitting in this throne and doing nothing in the movies. This figure is bigger than an average Pop figure. This figure costed $32 bucks by itself.

102-104. 

  • Winry Rockbell (Fullmetal Alchemist)
  • Exodia the Forbidden One (Yu-Gi-Oh!)
  • Classic Sonic (Sonic the Hedgehog)

I got these three figures from GameStop online, but they came in different times and packaging. I got Winry first and days later I got Exodia and Sonic. Fullmetal Alchemist is a great anime series and I highly recommend watching it. I haven’t gotten Edward, Alphonse or the others yet. The only FMA characters I have is her and King Bradly. I got myself another big figure from the Yu-Gi-Oh! series. You don’t need to buy five pieces to assemble this powerful monster. As part of the 30th anniversary of Sonic the Hedgehog, Sega and Funko teamed up again and released a Pop version of Classic Sonic. This version Sonic has himself in a running animation.

105. Silver the Hedgehog (Hot Topic exclusive)

One again, I got this figure from a purchase from Hot Topic. Just like Classic Sonic, Sega released another figure from Sonic’s universe and it’s the telekinetic Hedgehog, Silver. Making his debut in the video game Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), Silver is another addition to Sonic and his friends. While he may not be fast like Sonic or edgy like Shadow, he is an optimistic hedgehog who wants to protect people with his powers. This Hot Topic version gives this figure the ability to glow in the dark. I might post some pictures in the future, but I would recommend getting him whenever you get the chance before Silver disappears.

As of now from May, I have 105 figures!

Sonic 2022 game leaked title? Rumor open world game?

New Sonic the Hedgehog Game Teased For 2022 | Screen Rant

Ever since Sega launched the Sonic Direct conference on Thursday, fans have been pondering on the 2022 untitled Sonic video game. With no gameplay or title reveal, this Sonic 2022 game will be released next year for all platforms. However, days later and according to leaks, fans are speculating on the name of Sonic’s new game. According to a Twitter user, someone went into the databanks of this game and found some interesting codes. Based on the date, the new game could be titled Sonic Rangers. Other anonymous users also claim that this new Sonic game is also going to be an open-world game similar to other games such as The Legend of Zelda: Breathe of the Wild.

What do you guys think? You think this is legit or is this false? If true, how do you feel about a Sonic open world game?
