Friday Funny 340: Next time on Dragon Ball Shippuden!

TGIF!

Thank God for Friday! Welcome everyone for another episode of Friday Funny. I hope everyone is enjoying the fall weather and smelling the pumpkin spice. Put down the Nintendo Switch and give me second to tell you a quick recap of news, and after I get done, you go back and play as Sora in Super Smash Bros Ultimate again. This past weekend, we had DC Fandome, a fan convention for DC fans for all the latest news in movies, video games and comic books. In the movie industry, on March 4, 2022, get ready for a new Batman movie called The Batman featuring Robert Pattinson. Also coming in 2022 is DC’s antihero/villain is Black Adam. Starring The Rock, get ready to see a dark counterpart of Shazam also known as Black Adam. Black Adam will be in theaters in July 2022. If Batman and Black Adam is not in your interest, maybe you’ll love the Red Streak himself, the Flash. The Flash movie will be joining 2022 as well and this movie will have Flash teaming up with Supergirl and Batman. Last but not least, I do bring in some sad news for anime fans. Voice actor Chris Ayres has passes away this week. In the Dragon Ball fandom, Chris is well-known for voicing Frieza in Dragon Ball Z Kai and up to Dragon Ball Super; he started in 2009 to 2019 for the series. He passed away due to COPD.

It has come to my attention that I bring you tragic news for the anime community. Yesterday, it was reported online that anime voice actor Chris Ayres has passed away due to fighting years with COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). It was first announced by his wife Krystal LaPorte in which she revealed the news on Twitter. He was only 56 of age.

He voiced Frieza starting from 2009 to all the way to 2019, from Dragon Ball Z Kai to all the way to the movie Dragon Ball Super Broly. According to Bounding Into Comics, he also voiced other anime characters in different anime such as Kei Kurano in Gantz and Ushio in Saint Seiya.

Review: Food Wars! The Fourth Plate (Spoiler-Free)

Rightstuf synopsis:

The ultimate Regimental Food War continues as the culinary rebels led by Soma and the members of Kyokusei square off against epicurean elitist Azami and the Totsuki Ten. At stake – the future of dining across Japan. Because if the rebels fail, Azami intends to impose his own tastes and techniques on the entire restaurant industry!

But the fine dining control freak has made a serious mistake in threatening the futures of Soma’s friends and family, as while the rebels may seem less experienced overall, this is ultimately a clash of skill, dedication, and, most of all, taste. That may be a recipe for disaster for the seasoned veterans! There are truffled times ahead, and it’s anyone’s guess as to whose goose will ultimately be cooked in the mind-roasting season long battle!

Toonami news: Batman movies and Fena take over last weeks of October

See the source image

As we enter the last remaining weeks of October, Toonami is going to make Saturday nights/Sunday mornings epic. If you need some anime for your weekend, Toonami is going to be doing something different for these last two weeks of October. On October 23rd, Toonami will be premiering the Batman movies Batman: Long Halloween Parts 1 and 2 after Fena: Pirate Princess. On October 30th, Toonami will be having a marathon of the anime Fena: Pirate Princess.

Batman: Long Halloween synopsis:

“Inspired by the iconic mid-1990s DC story from Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale, Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One begins as a brutal murder on Halloween prompts Gotham’s young vigilante, the Batman, to form a pact with the city’s only two uncorrupt lawmen (Police Captain James Gordan and District Attorney Harvey Dent) in order to take down The Roman, head of the notorious and powerful Falcone Crime Family. But when more deaths occur on Thanksgiving and Christmas, it becomes clear that, instead of ordinary gang violence, they’re also dealing with a serial killer – the identity of whom, with each conflicting clue, grows harder to discern. Few cases have ever tested the wits of the World’s Greatest Detective like the mystery behind the Holiday Killer.

According to Toonami Faithful, Batman: Long Halloween is a dedication to actress Naya Rivera who voiced Catwoman in the movie. She passed away in 2020, but she was able to complete this movie project.
