Pirate Crew Blog Tag

I want to thank Melinanimeland for tagging me for this Pirate Crew Blog Tag. This is a tag post I find pretty interesting. I like pirates as much as I like ninjas and knights. Before I begin, let me share you the rules of this tag post. It’s pretty self-explanatory. I choose seven anime characters and give them their roles for my crew. Once I am satisfied, I can set sail. After that, I get to choose

Rules:

  • Display the My Pirate Crew logo and add ‘My Pirate Crew’ as a tag.
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and post a link to their blog.
  • Link back to the original post here(so I can compare your crews to mine).
  • Select seven anime characters and give them a position on the crew. These are the positions you can to fill. Warrior, sniper, chef, doctor, scientist, navigator, strategist, mechanic, entertainer.
  • Nominate 5-10 bloggers.
  • Set sail and rule the seas!

To make things more fun, I won’t be using any One Piece characters for this challenge. If you don’t know, One Piece is an anime about pirates. There are nine roles in this tag post, but the rules says I can choose seven out of it. I am going to try and fill all nine. I am a pirate and I am here to break the rules, because I am Captain Matt-in-the-hat!

Warrior:

Jotaro Kujo (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventures)

Out of all the warriors or tough characters in anime, I think Jotaro will fit in my crew. Jotaro is a tough guy who never loses his cool. With his stand, Star Platinum, he can unleash super fast flurry of punches on his enemies. Star Platinum has super fast reflexes that he can even defend from gun shots. Even without a stand, Jotaro can still beat up people and solve his problems with his fist. I need someone who can stay calm and fight his way in a situation.

Sniper:

Jigen (Lupin III)

In my crew, I am going to need someone who can shoot fast and accurate. I pick Jigen from the Lupin series. Jigen is Lupin’s friend and partner when stealing valuable items and he is kick on his revolver. He is pretty serious in his mission and doesn’t play around like Lupin.

Chef:

Ignis Scientia (Brotherhood: Final Fantasy XV)

Technically he is from a video game, but he is also in the anime spinoff! I pick Ignis to be my cook. Besides him saying “I come up with a new  recipeh” every time he finds an ingredient, Ignis has no problem cooking any dish. He is not far from his kitchen especially when camping. When he is not cooking, he is equipped with some magical daggers that can pinpoint any enemies weakness and even pierce down on anyone with his lance. Ignis is one man who can fight and stay sharp and well-mannered in the kitchen. Give this guy an Ebony drink.

Doctor:

Orihime Inoue (Bleach)

I choose Orhime for this position. Orihime not only has the ability to heal, but also reject the phenomena of matter. Simply put, she can reverse things to the point it never happened. She did this on Grimmjow’s arm whenit got cut off. She can also create barriers as shields to protect her friends and even heal at the same time. She is worthy for my crew.

Scientist:

Bulma Briefs (Dragon Ball)

What’s better than a scientist? A scientist who is rich. Bulma will make an excellent crew member. With her owning the Capsule Corporation, she can use her vast amount of money to help our gear. She can use her capsules and contain big objects. She can even make a radar to find the dragon balls. I need someone who can make something in flash.

Navigator:

Kirito (Sword Art Online)

I choose Kirito to be the navigator. I pick him since I feel like he would be a guy who got more experience traveling. As a solo player in the anime, he doesn’t have to worry to about exploring in his leisure and he knows about a dungeon having traps. With his sensory skills, he could help us detect hidden areas and explore uncharted areas.

Strategist:

Kakashi (Naruto)

I was going to pick Shikamaru because he’s intelligent, but I feel like Kakashi is smart like him, but with more fire power. Kakashi is a very smart ninja and with the Sharingan, he can copy moves from his enemies and use it against them.

Mechanic:

Edward Elric (Fullmetal Alchemist)

He may be small, but don’t let size deceive you. With the power of alchemy, Edward can transform objects into anything without needing a transmutation circle. He can even use his mechanical arm as a blade. I need a crew member to fix and update our ship in a instant.

Entertainer:

Yugi Muto (Yu-Gi-Oh!)

Sometimes we just need to play a game to ease away the tension. I pick Yugi as my entertainer. I am always entertained when watching duel in the anime. If my crew wants to play a card game and battle each other in duel monsters, we should see if we can take down the king of games. Playing a card game will also help us think ahead and improve our fighting skills when fighting.


Here are the people I tag:

  1. Ya Boy Jack
  2. dreager1
  3. Krystallina
  4. Rocco
  5. Shaddowcat99
  6. Chizure
  7. Naja B.
  8. Lita
  9. Shay Taree
  10. Scorpzgca

Are you sea dogs ready to set sail and share your crew post to the world. Are willing to challenge me? Come at me, I will be ready for a duel. Please be sure to visit Melinanimeland’s blog and check out her post.

Voice Actor Vic Migogna plans to recommit to God

Here is a brief update to the news of Vic Migogna news. Just a heads up, this is all unbiased and objective. I will not voice my opinion. This is what I am hearing from Anime News Network.

With the recent controversy and accusations of voice actor Vic Migogna, Vic Migogna wrote out an updated statement yesterday in regards to these accusations. After being forced to leave Funimation and having voice actress Monica Rial and Jamie Marchi accusing him for harassment, here is what he has to say (it is also on his twitter):

Mentioned in his statement, Vic is planning to recommitting his life to God and he is hoping to seek counselor for his behavior.

Again, I am just sharing you this update about him to you readers. This is all objective.

Hulu is open to Marvel Netflix cancelled series! Possible revival?

There might be hope for fans if Hulu and Marvel agree to cooperate. Last year, it was announced that Netflix cancelled the Marvel series Daredevil, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. However, with Hulu agreeing to allow more Marvel series to join opposing streaming site and especially since they agreed to do four animated series  based on Marvel characters such as Howard the Duck, it is possible that Hulu could revive these Netflix series.

Craig Erwich, VP of original streaming, made a comment to the Wrap  in regards to Marvel and their cancelled series and Hulu:

“Marvel has a ton of titles we’d be interested in. It kind of just depends on when they’re ready, [and] who, most importantly, is going to be behind these things.”

Overall, Erwich commented that if the team are interested to bringing shows like Daredevil, Luke Cage and Iron Fist to Hulu and continuing the series, he will allow it on Hulu if only they are interested. If it goes well for both parties, Hulu will save these shows and expand more content on their site.

What’s your thoughts?

Marvel Hulu plans to make animated series called “The Offenders”

Imagery for “Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K.,” “Marvel’s Hit Monkey,” “Marvel’s Tigra & Dazzler Show,” and “Marvel’s Howard the Duck," who will all team up in "Marvel's The Offenders"

It may not be like the cancelled Deadpool animated series or Netflix Marvel, but it looks like Hulu wants to make a Marvel series exclusively in Hulu. Announced at Television Critics Association Press Tour, Hulu announced that they are teaming up with Marvel and wants to create four animated series based on the Marvel characters M.O.D.O.K., Hit Monkey, Dazzler, Tigra, and Howard the Duck. All four series will also lead to a TV event called Marvel’s “The Offenders”. Here is the four animated series and their synopsis:

Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K.

n “Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K.,” M.O.D.O.K, an egomaniacal Super Villain with a really big head and a really little body, struggles to maintain control of his evil organization and his demanding family. “Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K.” comes from writers Jordan Blum and Patton Oswalt, with Blum, Oswalt and Jeph Loeb serving as Executive Producers.

Marvel’s Hit Monkey

“Marvel’s Hit Monkey” tells the tale of a wronged Japanese snow monkey, mentored by the ghost of an American assassin, as he cuts a wide swath through the Tokyo underworld in this darkly cinematic and brutally funny revenge saga. “Marvel’s Hit Monkey” comes from writers Josh Gordon and Will Speck, with Gordon, Speck and Jeph Loeb serving as Executive Producers.

Marvel’s Tigra and Dazzler Show

In “Marvel’s Tigra & Dazzler Show,” two woke Super Heroes and best friends, Tigra and Dazzler, fight for recognition among powered people who make up the eight million stories in Los Angeles. “Marvel’s Tigra & Dazzler Show” comes from writers Erica Rivinoja and Chelsea Handler, with Rivinoja, Handler, and Jeph Loeb serving as Executive Producers.

Marvel’s Howard the Duck

Trapped in a world he never made, America’s favorite fighting fowl Howard the Duck hopes to return home with the help of his unstoppable gal pal Beverly before the evil Dr. Bong can turn him the crispiest dish on the menu, in “Marvel’s Howard the Duck.” “Marvel’s Howard the Duck” comes from writers Kevin Smith and Dave Willis, with Smith, Willis, and Jeph Loeb serving as Executive Producers.

 

So far there is no expected release date for these four series, but if you got Hulu and you want to laugh at some Marvel characters, you might want to keep your eyes peeled for this one.

M.O.D.O.K.

Hit Monkey

Tigra

Dazzler

Vic Mignogna no longer involved with Funimation

If you are aware about the Vic Migogna controversy and the tweets #IStandWithVic or #KickVic, I bring some news from Funimation.

In a tweet sent by Funimation, Funimation announced that the team will no longer be involved with the voice actor for future projects. This means that Vic won’t be lending his voice for anime from Funimation and any current anime that has him in it, will also be recasted. It’s been announced that the anime Morose Mononokean season 2 will replace his character.

If you don’t know the controversy, it happened around after the movie release of Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie. News have spread that the voice actor has been giving unwanted hugs and kisses to his fans and the fans believed it was harassment. These allegations happened in 2008 however! Unfortunately, because this news is showing up, Rooster Teeth fired the voice actor from the series Rooster Teeth as he played as a character named Qrow.

Friday Funny 199: Shaggy, Destroyer of Realities!

TGIF!

Thank God for Friday! Welcome back guys for another funny post of Matthew’s Friday Funny! I hope everyone is doing okay in the cold. We are in February and we are getting hit by the coldest climate. Over here where I am at, it’s tough leaving the house because of inches of snow. If you think the weather has been rough, you should have seen the Super Bowl this Sunday. This past Sunday premiered the Super Bowl with Patriots against the Rams. The Patriots won again and this means Tom Brady get’s another ring for his collection. Not mention, one of the most disappointment moment of the Super Bowl is that NFL didn’t give us Sweet Victory from SpongeBob SquarePants. If you don’t know what I am talking about, it was mentioned a while back that Sweet Victory was going to be performed at the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime along with singers like Maroon 5. Unfortunately, we only got a SpongeBob clip and no song! Instead, the singers performing was Maroon 5 and Sicko Mode. It’s pretty sad when the NFL fails to entertain us but the NHL gave us Sweet Victory. Thumbs up and thank you NHL. I wish Ultra Instinct Shaggy was here to punish NFL. Lately I have been seeing Shaggy memes and I have to admit, it’s pretty funny to see people post pictures of him being stronger than Goku from Dragon Ball. Unfortunately, Shaggy is too powerful to be in Mortal Kombat 11 and he is unable to be a guest character. I am enjoying my Kingdom Hearts III game and even though I am not finished, this game feels like I am watching a Disney and Pixar movie and I love it.

With this said, let’s get this party started, man.

Here is the half time we deserve!

Here are some Shaggy clips:

 

 

Like, that’s it man! Please like this post to help an abused Sasuke.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 movie will use Gunn’s script

Good news for Guardians of the Galaxy fans! According to IGN, the “halted” movie Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 will indeed be using James Gunn’s script. In a interview with Star Lord actor Chris Pratt with MTV, Pratt commented that they plan to do the movie according to James Gunn. He also mentioned that he still cares about him and he believes it’s important for the team to stick together like the Guardians and get the job done.

However, it’s still unknown to who will direct the movie.

If you don’t know why Disney fired James Gunn, Disney found James Gun’s tweets and deemed them inappropriate due to not being civil and polite. In results, Disney fired James Gunn and this caused the movie to be put on pause on production. James Gunn is currently working with Warner Bros and plans to do a Suicide Squad movie in 2021.

Fortnite players can now merge accounts!

This is something out of the ordinary for me, but nonetheless, this is something most players enjoy but won’t admit.

According to GameSpot, Epic Games announced that players who play Fortinte and can merge their accounts into one and save their collectibles. If you have a different account on game systems like PC, Switch, X1 or PS4, you can create an Epic Account and keep your stuff like V-Bucks or skins.

However, there is a process which may be intimating because you need to make a primary and secondary account. I will leave the link below if you want to know how to do it.

So if you like Fortnite, but you want to keep everything organized into one account, you can get started today.
