Anime News: FUNimation resumes original D. Gray-Man Episodes!

With the announcement of the new anime series “D.Gray-Man HALLOW”, FUNimation announced that they will begin to release the remaining episodes to the classic 2006 version of “D.Gray-Man”. Originally, FUNimation released the original anime with episodes 1-51. They couldn’t release the rest of the episodes; episode 52-103. Now that they have the license, they can finish the anime.

D.Gray-man Synopsis

Darkness is moving in, and young exorcist Allen Walker is humanity’s greatest hope against the wicked forces conspiring to bring civilization to its knees. Akuma – cruel spirits born of tragedy and lost souls – lurk in every shadow, willing and eager to do the bidding of their leader, the dread Millennium Earl. With an eye cursed to see evil in its truest form and blessed with an arm to slay soul-devouring demons, Allen stands ready to confront the gathering evil. Should he fail, Innocence will be lost forever. The war to decide the fate of mankind has begun – and the carnage will be endless.

D.Gray-man HALLOW Synopsis

From the studio behind D.Gray-man comes the highly anticipated continuation to the popular series. Allen Walker is an exorcist working for the Black Order whose mission is to protect mankind from the evil Millennium Earl and his deadly Akuma. Allen and his comrades must recover lost Innocence while defending against the Earl’s terrifying army. But if they fail, Innocence will be lost forever.

D.Gray-Man Hallows will begin on July 4th at 2:05 PM EST.

Friday Funny 63: A Sparking Weekend!

TGIF! Thank God it’s Friday! In this episode, we have another busy but fun filled weekend. Today is the beginning of the next convention called Anime Expo 2016, or sometimes short for AX2016. The convention begins today and the last day is on July 4th. The convention will also be held in Los Angeles, California. I don’t live in LA but in California, let me warn you that it will be hot. Make sure to drink plenty of fluids and be careful on walking through large crowds. Don’t forget to check out the booths like Weekly Shonen Jump or Aniplex of America to obtain exclusive goods. This post was going to be dedicated to Sonic the Hedgehog because his birthday was on June 23rd, but I think it will wait until next time. Don’t worry Sonic, I won’t forget you ;).

Speaking of anime, the series Blue Exorcist will return for another anime series next year of 2017! It’s time to go back to True Cross Academy and fight Satan!

If you not into anime or manga but you still want to do something special on Friday, today is the movie release of “The Legend of Tarzan”. It’s not from Disney, this was done by Warner Bros. I never read the books but this movie could be based on the novels by Edgar Rice Burroughs.  The movie will have actors like Alexander Skarsgård, Marogot Robbie and Samuel L. Jackson.

July 4th, obviously, is Independence Day or 4th of July! It’s the time where people celebrate the day when the Declaration of Independence got signed and we got our rights of freedom and liberty. On this holiday, have fun and enjoy the fireworks but be careful. Don’t play with fire and protect your animals from loud noises.

So without further ado, let’s begin this hot weekend!!!

What better way to end this post with this anime song. United States of Smash!

Have a Happy 4th of July!!!
