Friday Funny 176: A tribute to bus drivers!

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome back to another episode of Friday Funny. Today is the last day of August and I hope everyone survived the first month of school. I don’t know exactly when you guys start school, but over here, it has already begun. As we approach September, get ready for some change in the weather. Say good bye to those hot summer days and brace yourself with for cool days of autumn. When autumn comes, get ready for the return of the pumpkin spice season and Halloween time. If you plan to do some Halloween fun, today is a good time to shop for some candy or buy costumes for parties; cosplayers might have to dust off their wig pieces and accessory for this day. Besides that, get ready for some upcoming video games for September! Even though Spyro Reignited Trilogy got delayed for November, players can still get excited for other anticipated games like Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Marvel Spider-Man PS4. The OWLS will also begin a new blog tour topic as well, so keep an eye on that!

Here are some memes for casual people and bus drivers!

Here are some funny videos in dedication to the horror movie Slender Man!

Here is something random:

Have a nice Labor Day weekend!

We Never Learn is getting an anime!

If you have been reading the Weekly Shonen Jump magazine online, you may have heard this romantic comedy series We Never Learn. Announced today from ANN, this manga series is finally getting an anime! The anime will be directed by Yoshiaki Iwasaki (he directed anime like Love Hina) and the studio will be done by Studio Silver and Arvo Animation. In charge of the composition of the anime will be Go Zappa who did A Bridge to the Starry Skies and Masakatsu Sasaki is in charge of designing the characters; he previously did A-Channel and Saki.

The manga originally appeared in the February 2017 issue. The manga originally appeared as a free preview called Jump Start and after getting attention, the series stayed with the magazine.

Here is what the story is described as:

The manga’s story centers on Yuiga, a student who is aiming for a scholarship because he comes from a poor family. His school gives him a condition: he can have a recommendation for a scholarship if he tutors his two beautiful classmates to help them get into the schools of their choice. Ogata may be a science genius and Furuhashi a literature prodigy — but Ogata is aiming for a liberal arts school and Furuhashi is aiming for a science school. And they’re both clueless outside their fields of expertise.

Synopsis from Rightstuf:

The year is 1931. The city is Shanghai. Ten years before America will enter World War II, the hydra’s teeth planted by the first great global conflict are beginning to germinate. Hatching like spiders, they weave the complex web of plots and conspiracies destined to inevitably draw entire nations against their will to the brink of destruction once more.

Caught in the heart of these webs, desperately seeking to separate lies from truth, is “Sakurai Kikan,” an ultra-secret intelligence agency staffed by extraordinarily talented individuals with abilities far beyond those of normal humans. Their duty: to stop the darkest plots and eliminate the greatest threats. But in a city built on intrigue, can even a team of clairvoyants, telepaths and espers stand against the ultimate forces of destiny?

Friday Funny 175: We Are Number 1!

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome back to another episode of Friday Funny! I am here to bring joy and happiness to your day. Today is the third Friday of August and we have one last Friday left. I hope everyone is doing well this week and I hope everyone is okay in this summer heat. If you missed out on the news of this week, here is a quick run down. Bandai Namco has revealed many game trailers and news for upcoming games. Jump Force will be adding characters from Hunter x Hunter, Vegeta from Dragon Ball and even more pirates from One Piece. Soul Calibur VI just revealed the first DLC character to join the roster and it’s Tira from SC3, 4, and 5. In order to get her, you need to buy either the season pass or DLC alone; you don’t get her with the preorder bonus. Last but not least, we got some information to the upcoming One Piece game One Piece World Seeker. According to the recent trailer, Luffy gets captured by the Marines and gets taken to Prsion Island. Luffy will have to escape from the marines and face off against powerful enemies like the admirals, CP9 and even the Vinsmoke family.

I do have some sad news. If you haven’t heard, Stefan Karl Stefansson recently passed away. Stefan was in the childhood show LazyTown which was in Nick Jr. and he played as the town’s villian Robbie Rotten. His actor involved tricking kids into becoming lazy and his rival is the active superhero Sportacus. I rememeber watching this show years ago whenever I was off from school as a kid. I loved the catchy songs and I enjoyed the Robbie. Robbie was like goofball villain similar to Wario or Waluigi. Rest in peace for this man. He was number one.

With this said, let’s begin!

In honor of the actor of Robbie Rotten, here are some songs worth listening in memory of him.

God bless you!
