Looks like Vic Migogna is not the only one suing workers of Funimation, but apparently, Funimation might be in trouble with the FunimationNow service. According to One Angry Gamer website, Kojicast LLC is suing Funimation for infringement in regards to FunimationNow, the streaming service. I am not going to go over what’s already said but you can look it up on the website and watch the video. Apparently, what is going on here is Kojicast LLC has filed a suit against Funimation on April 24th, 2019. Here is what the suit is described:

In the suit it alleges that Funimation used the ‘683 Patent in their FunimationNow streaming technology that allows users to stream Funimation content from their mobile device and then pick up and resume that content on additional devices, such as home computers or smart TVs.

According to One Angry Gamer, Funimation is in trouble for allowing users to use the FunimationNow app to watch a show and then resume watching it on another device.

One Angry Gamer:

It’s only 22 seconds long, and the relevant part is at the 16 second mark, where it advertises episode progress syncing across devices, so you can play or watch the content across multiple devices.

You can read more at the wesbite about this. If this is happening, Funimation is getting sued twice this year. One is for the Vic Migonga case for having coworkers Monica Rial, her boyfriend Ron Toye and Jamie Marchi for deflamation and false accusations. Second is this from Kojicast LLC and FunimationNow.

Masashi Kishimoto new manga is here!

Image result for samurai 8

It has been a while since the original Naruto manga has ended. Currently running, we have the Boruto manga which is being supervised by the original creator. However, if you want more Naruto-esque series, I got good news! If you have a Shonen Jump account, Naruto creator Masashi Kishimoto has just revealed and released the manga of his next work Samurai 8: The Tale of Hachimaru. The manga story was created by Masashi Kishimoto and the art is being done by Akira Okubo. According to the Wiki, he is one of the seventh assistance in Kishimoto’s job and he helped do the Naruto manga in volume 16. If you’re wondering, Mikio Ikemoto is also one of Kishimoto’s assistance but he is also in charge of the manga Boruto: Naruto Next Generation.

Shonen Jump describes the series:

Samurai 8: Hachimaruden is a sc-fi manga that follows a weak boy named Hachimaru, who can’t survive without a life-support system and has never left his house. While dreaming about becoming a “Samurai” that has a machine body and power beyond human, he has spent his days only by playing online games. The story starts moving when a cat, calls himself a “Samurai,” appears in front of him.

Here is what Masashi Kishimoto said when talking to Viz:

Masashi Kishimoto comments:

Q. “If you give an abbreviated name or nickname for Samurai 8: Hachimaruden…?”

 

Kishimoto: “I want some part of the word ‘Samurai’ to be included. I know it is a bit difficult title to be

shortened. Let’s see…, well, please call it ‘SamHachi!’ I think it is just right. However, it is only my hope.

Please use any abbreviated name that is easy for you to call (laugh).”

 

Q: “Message to the readers.”

 

Kishimoto: “As announced at the Jump Festa at the end of last year, I have been struggling to exceed my

previous work Naruto!! (laugh). Because I had taken hiatus from a weekly serialization work, my sense is

now as same as that of amateur artists. However, the pressure from around is so strong (laugh). I want

them to go easy on me. …But I understand if I keep talking so complacently, any manga can be cancelled

so easily in Shonen Jump, so I brace myself to do my best. Then all I can do left is to send it to the readers.

Its serialization starts this week. So everyone, please read my latest work ‘Samurai 8 Hachimaruden’!

Thank you very much!”
