Friday Funny 141: 17 and 18

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome back to another episode of Friday Funny. This is the last episode for 2017 and we approach 2018. It’s been a hectic but exciting year for us but hopefully we all survived. Just thinking about what I have been doing in 2017, it is hasn’t been easy. I recently moved away from old town and into the mountains and I to adjust to mountain living. It’s been fun for my anime and cartoon viewing time. I was able to see the conclusion to Samurai Jack and Hey Arnold. I got to see interesting anime movies like Sword Art Online, One Piece, Yu-Gi-Oh! and Pokemon. I didn’t really make any plans for 2018 but if I did, I would say that I want to continue blogging as usual. I want to try and start my business with my blog, stay with the OWLS and hopefully get some spare to catch up on my readings.

I want to say thank you to Rocco B for buying coffee at my Ko-fi page! If you want to show your support for my blog, feel free to follow the link and pay me a visit.

My Top 5 Anime’s of 2017 I seen: Inspired post by Shay Taree

2017 has been one hectic year for all of us. As we approach the end of 2017 and begin anew for 2018, get ready for new anime series and movies. After watching my blogger friend Shay Taree’s recent video “My Top 5 Anime’s of 2017“, I felt compelled to do a list of anime I enjoyed this year. In this list, I will be sharing you guys what anime I seen this year and what I enjoyed the most. Some of the these anime may not be 2017 but it’s something I personally enjoyed. After you get done reading, go check out Shay’s channel and blog!

5. My Hero Academia season 1

https://i0.wp.com/img1.ak.crunchyroll.com/i/spire4/04c70cc61cd207417a322cad0e01e7fc1490298711_full.jpg

I got into this anime after hearing so much positive reviews from fans. If you like action anime and superheroes like DC comics and Marvel, you will like this anime. In this anime, the story is about people having these special powers called quirks. These quirks are special traits that give people powers and some people use them to become superheroes. The story is about a young boy named Izuku Midoriya who was born without a quirk but he wishes to become a hero like his idol, All Might. After a recent event and encounter with All Might, Midoriya is trained by his hero and signs up with other students at U.A. High School.

This anime has amazing music for the opening and ending songs and I enjoyed the combat. Watching these characters use their powers and face challenges was so good that I was on the edge of my chair.

4. Pokemon the Movie: I Choose You!

https://fesapusewebsite.blob.core.windows.net/fathom/5a4cae858d5d9088c3d071ed86a34317.jpg

As a way to celebrate 20 years of Pokemon the anime and video game, Japan decided to revamp the first journey of the protagonist Ash and Pikachu. From their first encounter and to test their friendship, Ash and Pikachu start their adventure in Kanto and in search for Ho-oh!

This is movie me and my friend Allie enjoyed seeing. Even though we both agreed that the movie was different compared to the first season of the anime, it was good to see Ash start from the beginning of the series. There was stuff I didn’t really like such as fast pacing moments and they replaced Ash’s key friends Misty and Brock with other characters supposedly playing their roles (one uses water Pokemon and the other is a medic). Still, we both enjoyed the main Pokemon song!

3. One Piece: Film Gold

https://www.rightstufanime.com/images/productImages/704400097027_anime-one-piece-film-gold-movie-dvd-primary.jpg

Being the third film series, Eiichiro Oda takes the helm again and creates an original story for the Straw Hats. After defeating Doflamingo, Luffy and his friends arrive to the city of gold called Gran Tesoro. In this Las Vegas like island ship, Luffy and his friends discover a dark secret behind the owner, Gild Tesoro, of the island and must find a way to save Zoro from being a golden prisoner. GIld Tesoro is the owner and he has the power to turn anything gold! It’s Rubber vs Gold!

This is actually my first ever One Piece Film I seen. I missed out on watching Film Strong World and Z. Aside from that, I really enjoyed the English from Funimation. It has been a long time since I heard the cast in English and the last time I saw English Dub One Piece was in Toonami; however, the anime was removed from Toonami and replaced with other series. This film was beautiful and epic and seeing Luffy fight was an eye catcher. I did enjoy the music in the beginning of the movie.

2. Yu-Gi-Oh!: The Darkside of Dimensions

https://de1imrko8s7v6.cloudfront.net/movies/posters/ygo_darkside_of_dimensions_poster_v2_us_full_1481146634.jpg

Taking place after the events of the story, Yugi and his friends prepare to graduate high school. Meanwhile, Seto Kaiba tries to find ways to bring back the Pharaoh Atem from the spirit world. However, this attracts the antagonist Aigami (real name Diva) and once again, Yugi must return to dueling to stop both Kaiba and Diva. Diva goal is to rid the world of evil and corruption but Yugi must stop him before he takes over the world. This movie was done by the creator of the manga Kazuki Takashi.

Just like Pokemon, this movie is another thing Allison and I enjoyed the most. What was amazing this movie was the English Dub. If you don’t know what I mean, the cast of the English Dub is from 4Kids and even the anime was done, the original cast came back after all these years played the role of the characters. In a funny way, it is like a reunion of our childhood. Allie and I saw the characters grow up and act like the usual habits like the Saturday morning shows.

1. Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale

https://i1.wp.com/www.otakutale.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Sword-Art-Online-Ordinal-Scale-Blu-ray-DVD-Case-Front.jpg

Taking place after Season 2 and Mother Rosario, a new gaming experience called Ordinal Scale shows up and players with the Augma can play games in AR! Kirito and his friends play in the real word in a virtual reality simulation. Even though Kirito doesn’t enjoy it, Asuna takes the spotlight of the movie and shows off her skills. However, the movie takes a turn to the worse when someone is attacking survivors from the SAO incident. It’s up to Kirito to find out what is the true purpose of Ordinal Scale and why recreate the monsters from Sword Art Online. The movis was done by the light novel auther Reki Kawahara.

If you knew me, I love Sword Art Online. When I first heard about this movie, I was hyped. When Shay did a video giveaway for tickets to Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale, I immediately entered. I didn’t win but thanks to God, I got picked and I won.

I went to see the movie it was released and I only saw it in English Subbed. I also got to watch it with my friend Allie. We enjoyed every moment of the movie. This movie had tons of Asuna action and it had an amazing LiSA song. More importantly, this was my first time watching an anime movie on the big screen and being surrounded by SAO fans. I didn’t experience this alone. It was the best time of my life.

These are my top 5 anime I enjoyed in  2017. Please go and check out Allie’s blog at her site. Allie, you are reading this post, I want to say that after everything we been through in 2017 and whenever talked about anime, let’s do it again for 2018. As a knight of my word, let me stay with you my queen! God bless you Allison.

Friday Funny 140: He was born in a manger

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! It is a good day today because after today, we have Christmas Eve on Sunday and Day on Saturday! It has been a busy month of the year for me and probably everyone else. I hope you guys are doing well and didn’t forget the true reason why we celebrate Christmas. Christmas is the day Jesus came down from Heaven to Earth so He can grow up and die and take away sins; 3 days later, he comes back and defeats death. Overall, we remember this important history and this is why we celebrate Christmas. The King of all kings was born in a manger in the city of Bethlehem.

I want to say that I blessed this month for many things I don’t deserve. I was able to work again for the season and earn money for gifts. With my hard work, I was able to buy many fun things for myself like anime and video games. Overall, I am just happy for this month. I want to thank you guys for reading my blog and supporting it.

Let’s start this happy season together:

To end this post, here are some cheerful songs (Instead of using Mariah Carey’s Christmas song, I will use something else. It’s been played out!)!

God bless you all and Merry Christmas

1.) If you could visit any fictional world where would you visit?

I would like to visit the world of Final Fantasy XV. It would be cool to explore Eos while riding ona Chocobo, meeting Cindy and CId at Hammerhead and explore Altissa and hopefully meet Lunafreya. I love FFXV!

2.) What’s your favorite fictional setting?

I think I would like a combination of a fantasy and future setting. Anime like Sword Art Online and Yu-Gi-Oh! Vrains or even the cartoon Loonatics Unleashed (I think my friend Allie influenced me to love the future more lol) would be awesome. We will have access to advanced technology and have powers.

3.) If you could be any character for a day who would you be?

I would like to Kirito from Sword Art Online. He has amazing gaming skills and it would be cool to feel like a hero.

4.) What’s your favorite thing to do?

I like to play video games. I am a gamer and I like to spend hours on playing through the story or just having a great time being number one.

5.) If you could have any super power what would it be?

I would like to warp like Noctis from Final Fantasy XV. I would like to like to teleport anywhere I go by tossing something at the location.

6.) What’s your favorite food?

I like food but my number one favorite food is pizza.

7.) What are some of your most beloved cartoons? (can also be anime)

Besides anime, I love cartoons. I enjoy the 90s cartoons from Nickelodeon such as Rugrats, Hey Arnold and Ren and Stimpy. I also like Ed, Edd’n Eddy from Cartoon Network.

8.) If you were stranded on an island what would you have to have to keep yourself sane?

I would have my Bible. I need to read something from God’s message.

9.) If you could turn any book or graphic novel into a TV show which would you choose?

If I could turn a book into a TV series, I would make the book Fahrenheit 451 into a series. I think if people learned about the story, we could learn the dangers of censorship and what happens if try to get rid of books. It’s important to read.

I like watching anime. Anime like Dragon Ball, One Piece and anything filled with action is my cup of tea.

New Pokemon movie in 2018: Ash has a new look! Thank you Anime Girls NYC

971C3DBA-01B3-4D9A-8CBD-C33DF060A6FC

As usual, I am starting to develop a bad habit of writing news a little bit late, but not right now! Thanks to a blogger friend of mine, Anime Girls NYC, I found out there’s another new movie coming out in 2018 and it’s Pokemon! According to her blog, the same team who did the movie “I Choose You!” will be part of this movie and creating the story.

I had to do some research as well and based on the trailer, another team changed Ash’s appearance as oppose to his Sun and Moon version. From the looks of the trailer and trailer, the movie will probably be taking place in Sun and Moon but Ash doesn’t look like his anime version from the TV series. According to Polygon, Attack on Titan studio WIT Studios took over the design of Ash. If you like the designs of Attack on Titan, I hope you like their style for this Pokemon movie. The movie will be released in theaters in Japan on July 13, 2018.

I want to say thank you to Anime Girls NYC for the news and updates. Go visit her site for more anime content!
