Great news Kingdom Hearts fans! Recently reported this week, we got some interesting news in regards to the anticipated video game Kingdom Hearts III. Square Enix announced that there is going to be a whole new opening song to the game and will be collaborated by two artists. The first artist is the well-known singer Hikaru Utada, who sang the Kingdom Hearts songs like Simple and Clean (even the remix versions) and Sanctuary, and the second artist is surprisingly the Dubstep songwriter Skrillex, well-known for making Dubstep music like Kyoto, Kill Everybody and Bangarang. A little known fact is that it’s mentioned by Skrillex that he is a long time fan of the Kingdom Hearts games.
Originally, Skrillex commented that he wanted to make a remix song of the already announced song “Don’t Think Twice” (the Japanese name for the song is called Chikai), but Utada and Skrillex came to an agreement that they will instead make an entirely new song for the game’s intro. The new song is called “Face your Fears”. With this news announced Kingdom Hearts III is going to be having two new songs and both is the intro and ending song.
Face your Fears – Hikaru Utada and Skrillex
Don’t think Twice – Hikaru Utada
It’s been announced from Anime News Network that the song Face you Fears will available in the market to purchase. This new album will include Face your Fears and both versions of Don’t Think Twice (English and Japanese). The album will be released on January 18, 2019.

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome back to another meme-ful Friday! I hope everyone is doing well today on this Friday. Whether if today is your day off or you’re working, you can still make time for some memes. I don’t have much new news for today, but I will say that if you are watching Toonami tomorrow, get ready for the English Dub premeire of the sequel anime called Boruto: Naruto Next Generation. This anime takes place after Shippuden and focuses on Naruto and Hinata’s child Boruto. If you like Naruto, get ready for tomorrow for ninja action because Toonami will be showing both Naruto Shippuden and Boruto! Also joining Toonami is the original Dragon Ball Z Kai (from Saiyan Saga to Android Saga) and the original Samurai Jack cartoon slices into the line-up. After this Friday, we enter a new week and get ready for October! While most people are praising the new Spider-Man game, get ready for Spider-Man’s rival to take the spotlight in his own solo movie Venom. Also, I finally beat Marvel Spider-Man on the PS4. This game was amazing and I am hoping to review the game soon. For this theme of TGIF, I have prepared this with SpongeBob SquarePants memes! If you don’t know who is SpongeBob, then you must be Patrick Star and live under rock. SpongeBob is a very popular cartoon in Nickelodeon and the popularity has caused fans to make many accurate memes based on this sponge. Technically, he is a 90s cartoon since he made his debut in 1999.
Are you ready for memes kids? I can’t hear!
Here is some random SpongeBob videos!
Good news Netflix users, I got some good news for this upcoming fall season. If you are in the U.S., get ready to see the return of your favorite shows. Announced today, it has been confirmed that the anime Violet Evergarden will be having a special episode titled Violet Evergarden – Special: Extra Episode and it will premiere on October 4th, the same day as Japan’s release. Another Netflix anime is getting another same treatment but even better.

If you didn’t know as, October 26th will also be the release of the anime Castlevania season 2.
It looks like Ryuko might have to share the spotlight for this upcoming Kill la Kill game. Recently reported on Dual Shockers, it has been revealed that Ryuko’s rival Satsuki Kiryuin will be the main focus in the story mode of the game Kill la Kill the Game: IF. The story mode will also be original and it will be created by the same writer from the anime, Kazuki Nakajima. It is also been teased that the new story mode will reveal a new costume called “Pure Spirit.” It’s unknown what it is, but now we know that Satsuki will be the main character and the story will feel like a new episode.
What’s your opinion about this direction of story telling?
Kill la Kill the Game: IF will be released in 2019 for PS4 and PC and will be developed by Arc System Works. Arc System Works previously worked on anime video games like Dragon Ball FighterZ and Blazblue: Cross Tag Battle.

Good news for SAO fans! If you like Sword Art Online video games, Bandai Namco has some fun news for you gamers!

From Hollow Fragment to Fatal Bullet, Bandai Namco wanted fans to see the amazing achievements of the past five years. However, that’s not the news I want to talk about. In the later half of the video, Bandai Namco revealed that the following games Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet and Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization will be ported to the Nintendo Switch. To make things more exciting, the Switch versions of these two games will have all the DLCs in it.

Do you like live-action movies based on anime? I got some news for you. It has been announced by Funimation on Friday that they got the license to release home video sets of the Japanese version of the Death Note movies. The movies that got licensed are Death Note, Death Note: The Last Name, and Death Note: Light up the NEW World. According to ANN, Funimation will release these movies in subtitled only. The first two movies will be bundled together and these three movies will be available to purchase on January 22, 2019.
Here is a side note: The first two movies have a dub version with the English voice actors from the anime but they are owned by Viz Media. So if you don’t care about the dub and you only want the movies in Blu-Ray, DVD and digital release, wait for the Funimation. If you want to watch the movie in dub, you might have to look far and wide for the Viz Media versions. If you don’t like the American Netflix version, get these instead!
Aniplex is back and is taking yet another anime title from the market. Announced on Twitter and to those who have the newsletters, Sentai Filmworks announced that the license to the anime films of Mardock Scramble has expired. This anime owned by both Sentai Filmworks and Aniplex; there are three movies of this anime. If you don’t have the trilogy or you want to own the movie series without paying a hefty amount of money, I strongley recommend buying this anime from the Sentai Filmworks shopping site. I placed an order for this anime today and it only costs about $22 dollars for three movies.

With the help of Doctor Easter, the man who restored her to life, and Oeufcoque, an intelligent, self-aware universal item capable of assuming the form and function of anything from a gun to a mouse, to a lady’s glove, Rune will have to find the proof to convict a vicious killer without dying a second time. In a world of black market body parts, high-stakes gambling, and lurid violence, justice will be written in blood as vengeance hit the streets in MARDOCK SCRAMBLE!
