Pirate Crew Tag Episode 2

my pirate crew tag

Talk about getting nominated for the same tag post again. I want to thank Keiko from Keiko’s Anime Blog for nominating me for this Pirate Crew Tag post. This is the second tag post I got nominated, but I really like these tagged posts. If you have time, check out my first Pirate Crew post. Here is the rules:

  • Display the My Pirate Crew logo and add ‘My Pirate Crew’ as a tag.
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and post a link to their blog.
  • Link back to the original post here (so I can compare your crews to mine).
  • Select seven anime characters and give them a position on the crew. These are the positions you can to fill. Warrior, sniper, chef, doctor, scientist, navigator, strategist, mechanic, entertainer.
  • Nominate 5-10 bloggers.
  • Set sail and rule the seas!

Chef: Brock

I need someone can make jelly filled donuts. Brock from Pokemon is an excellent character who has experience on taking of Pokemon and even his siblings. He is almost like Sanji from One Piece because he is easily attracted to women except for Jessie of Team Rocket.

Sniper: Vash

I am barely getting into this series, but I pick Vash the Stampede from Trigun. For a goofball, Vash is able to use a gun and never miss his target. Looks can be deceiving.

Strategist: L

See the source image

He’s a kind of guy to take risks, but he usually wins. L will be the crew’s strategist. He able to pinpoint every clue and navigate through a tough situation. He can play the enemy as if it’s a big chess game.

Mechanic: Kisuke Urahara

See the source image

He may look like a charmer, but don’t let the hat and cane fool you. Kisuke was a former Soul Reaper Captain who has an incredible Bankai and blade attacks. He is well known in the anime for selling Soul Reaper gadets he made for Ichigo when he wanted to focus on slaying Hollows and have a normal life at school. He even made a gadget for Kon so he can be the superhero Karakurizer!

Scientist: Orochimaru

See the source image

He’s creepy, but his experiments can be useful. He is infamous for trying to do forbidden acts for power. He is able to give power to his servants by giving them the curse marks and he can steal the first Hokage’s genes and plant it on someone so they can use wood jutsu. In addition, he was able to make Danzo an arm filled with Sharingan eyes. If his science doesn’t scare you, I am sure his snake like face will.

Doctor: Krillin

See the source image

You know I had to do it to em. Krillin from Dragon Ball would make an excellent doctor because he always there to carry Senzu Beans. Senzu Beans are special magical beans that can heal any remedy. If you get serious hurt and need a pain reliever, just ask for a Senzu Bean.

Navigator: Joseph Joestar

See the source image

As long we’re not flying any airplanes, I trust Joseph with my life and journey. Joseph is a guy who knows how to travel regardless of conditions. As long he knows someone from the Speedwagon Foundation, he can provide service for our travels. He even knows how to ride camels in the desert even though he said he fell asleep many times watching Lawrence of Arabia and it’s not easy taming a camel.

These are my seven crew members. These are the people I nominate:

Merlin

Lynn

Karandi

Solitaire

Moyatori

Have a nice day!

ONE PIECE STAMPEDE film reveals summer vacation clothes and teaser trailer

Somebody call the fashion police because One Piece is bring in some killer fashion! I found a recent update to the upcoming One Piece film ONE PIECE STAMPEDE in Crunchyroll news. The official One Piece anime site has posted up the “summer vacation” clothes for the 9 Straw Hat Members. It’s pretty common for the Straw Hat crew to get new clothes which is evident in the past films such as Strong World, Z, and Gold. We don’t have any battle outfits yet to see, only the vacation ones. According to the site, the clothes was both designed by the anime staff and Japanese clothes company UT which is sold by Uniqlo.

Last but not least, we also got a teaser trailer for the movie which shows returning characters like Law, Smoker and Buggy along with new characters named Bullet and Festa. It’s unknown what’s the plot but it has something to do with a festival and Gol D. Roger’s, The Pirate King, treasure.

Are you guys excited for the movie? ONE PIECE STAMPEDE is the 14th movie and it will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the anime series. The movie is expected to be released in Japanese theaters on August 19th, 2019.

Friday Funny 201: Time for some memes!

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome back for another Friday. I hope everyone is safe and warm inside rather than being in the rain and the snow. There’s nothing new I have to share so this is going to be really short, it’s mostly going to be a recap. Alita: Battle Angel, from I heard, it’s doing pretty well and it’s a good adaptation to the manga. Someone said online that Alita is a great female lead to the movie and it might even do better than the upcoming Captain Marvel movie in regards to character. Jump Force is already out and the reviews are mixed. Some people say it’s a really fun game where you can play as your favorite anime and fight other characters, but the game suffers from flaws such as connecting attacks and animation in the story. Final Fantasy XV fans can rejoice in new upcoming content for this year. Episode Ardyn is coming out this March and the cancelled DLC are coming back in novel format. This is the last Friday of February and next week is my favorite month, March. It’s only a matter of time before the winter is over and spring will give us warmth.

Shall we begin the memes if you have time?

 

Check out this funny Valentines Day video made by my aniblogger Lita 🙂

To end this post, I am going to do something fun similar to last week’s Friday post. Last week, I added anime opening songs that were Shonen Jump in dedication to the new game Jump Force. This week, I am going to be adding non-Shonen Jump OP songs. Which characters should join Jump Force regardless if they are from Jump or not? Who can take on someone strong as Goku? These are the series that should save the world, Jump World and game review. This is all just a joke lol!

Just a bonus and it doesn’t count, but I will add this. If Dai from Dragon Quest can join Jump Force, then add these four bois!

Hello my comrades! I am here to give you your daily news in the video game community. In case you missed it, Square Enix released the anime Final Fantasy XV: Episode Ardyn – Prologue this weekend. The anime can be viewed on YouTube and Crunchyroll. Just like the previous anime Brotherhood: Final Fantasy XV, where the main focus is on Noctis’ friends, this anime serves a prequel to the upcoming DLC story which will center on Final Fantasy XV villain Ardyn. The anime reveals a brief story about Ardyn’s life before appearing as the main threat in FFXV.

Also revealed at the anime, Square Enix revealed the game trailer of Episode Ardyn. Episode Ardyn is expected to be released on March 26th, 2019. In this gameplay, we get see Ardyn seeks his vengence towards to the Lucis Caelum family at Crown City and the story takes place years before Noctis was born. You can use the dark powers of the Starscourge and even team up with Ifrit to wreck havoc.

If you want to see the trailer, it’s at the end of the anime credits, but I highly recommend you watching the anime first so you can see an idea of Ardyn’s life. Mark your calendars for March 26th!

No more heroes: Netflix cancels The Punisher and will cancel Jessica Jones after Season 3

Where did our heroes? The Marvel heroes of New York are gone and will not be returning on Netflix. Found at IGN, news site Deadline reports that the Marvel Netflix series The Punisher won’t be renewed for another season and it will be cancelled. Likewise, the Marvel series Jessica Jones will also be cancelled, but after season 3 just like Daredevil.

Netflix in regarding to the Punisher:

“Marvel’s The Punisher will not return for a third season on Netflix. Showrunner Steve Lightfoot, the terrific crew, and exceptional cast including star Jon Bernthal, delivered an acclaimed and compelling series for fans, and we are proud to showcase their work on Netflix for years to come.”

Netflix in regarding to Jessica Jones:

“In addition, in reviewing our Marvel programming, we have decided that the upcoming third season will also be the final season for Marvel’s Jessica Jones. We are grateful to showrunner Melissa Rosenberg, star Krysten Ritter and the entire cast and crew, for three incredible seasons of this groundbreaking series, which was recognized by the Peabody Awards among many others.”

Netflix overall response to Marvel:

“We are grateful to Marvel for five years of our fruitful partnership and thank the passionate fans who have followed these series from the beginning.”

TV producer Jeph Loeb who worked on series Jessica Jones and Luke Cage wrote a letter thanking the fans for being supportive. Here is the letter and I will leave the link down below the post:

It had never been done before.

Four separate television series, each with different super-talented showrunners, writers, directors, cast and crew, coming out months apart and then…

…they would meet in a single event series all set in the heart of New York City.

We called them The Defenders.

And together we were thrilled by stories of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and even the Punisher joined in!

They said it couldn’t be done.

But Marvel assembled amazing teams to write, produce, direct, edit, and score 13 seasons and 161 one-hour episodes.

Take a moment and go online and look at the dazzling list of actors, writers, directors, and musicians who graced us with the very best of their craft.

We loved each and every minute of it.

And we did it all for you — the fans — who cheered for us around the world and made all the hard work worth it.

So, Thank You!

On behalf of everyone at Marvel Television, we couldn’t be more proud or more grateful to our audience.

Our Network partner may have decided they no longer want to continue telling the tales of these great characters… but you know Marvel better than that.

As Matthew Murdock’s Dad once said, “The measure of a man is not how he gets knocked to the mat, it’s how he gets back up.”

To be continued…!

– Jeph Loeb and all of us at Marvel Television

With all this said, this is the end of the Defenders. As far as I know, Hulu are in the works of doing four animated series focusing on some Marvel characters such as Howard the Duck and Hit Monkey. Disney+, upcoming Disney streaming service, are planning to do a TV series focusing on Loki and Vision and Scarlet Witch.
