Thank God it’s Friday! Good morning or evening everyone and welcome to another exciting episode of TGIF: Friday Funny. Today has been busy schedule this week but we survived. The reason why I picked this is because recently, FUNimation was able to show the live-action premiere of the manga Rurouni Kenshin in theaters. To those who don’t know, Rurouni Kenshin is a series about a man name Kenshin Himura who is a Rurouni (wanderer) who is seeking peace and redemption for his sins after a war and no longer wanting to kill anymore. He meets new friends and old enemies from his past. This swordsman will have to rely on his skills and his reversed-blade sword to defend the ones he love and fight without killing. The series was so good that Japan did a trilogy movie way back at 2012 through 2014. Now in 2016, FUNimation got license to show the movie here in the West and even selling the home DVDs. At their site, you can order your tickets or stay informed for the next movies. If you like Rurouni Kenshin or curious to know, go check out the manga, anime or even watch the films.
Besides this, if you have been following my blog, I recently posted a special “origin” post about my TGIF Friday Funny post. You can look it up on the TGIF: Friday Funny page at my blog or here. In that post, I talk about how did I get into doing these Friday posts and who was the original person that did this before.
Last but not least, if you’re an aniblogger (blogger that likes talking about anime) and you want to make new friends, go check out my friend Arria Cross’ Fujinsei Blog Carnival. At the carnival, you meet other bloggers and their posts about anime. Say hello and visit their blogs and have a great time. If you want to share one of your anime posts, the last day is on August 14, Sunday. Let Arria know that I sent you here lol ;).
Without any further day, let’s begin!
Here is some Kenshin videos!
If you like Rurouni Kenshin, I recommend checking out Buso Renkin. It was made by the same creator ^^.
Bye and see you around 🙂 !
