It has come to my attention that I have to bring up some really depressing news. It’s been announced by a voice actor named Marissa Lenti that the voice actor Michael Lindsay has recently passed away. He died in August 30th, 2019 and he was only 56 years old. According to some tweets, it is said that had some poor health. Michael Lindsay is well known for voicing characters in anime. He voiced Kisuke Urahara from Bleach, Kankuro from Naruto and Joe Kido from Digimon.

Funimation exposed: Chuck Huber’s affidavit reveals dark secrets about Funimation Staff

Image result for android 17 win

Affidavit: a written statement confirmed by oath or affirmation, for use as evidence in court.

An affidavit is basically a written proof that that is used for evidence in court and it is sword by oath. These evidences are not tampered and it must be true.

It’s been crazy with Funimation. Besides the recent links of the voice actors recording inappropriate jokes with the characters, let’s not forget the whole Vic Migogna situation with Voice actor Vic and Funimation. If you don’t know, this drama occurred in the last week of January after the blockbuster success of Dragon Ball Super Broly movie. Accusations started to pop up stating that Broly voice actor Vic Migogna has sexually assaulted his coworkers and fans. Some people stated that he harassed them by kissing, hugging and aggressively pulling hair. As far I been hearing and reading, I haven’t seen actual pictures of him doing this to anyone. All these accusations have claimed tha the did this for about 10 years and no one bothered to report him. Regardless, Funimation and Rooster Teeth fired Vic and replaced his voice of his characters. Recently, Vic is suing Funimation and his coworkers for spreading lies and defamation on him and ruining his career.

Today, I found some interesting news that someone from their perspective has seen the shady stuff with Chris Sabat, Sean Schemmel, Monica Rial and Jamie Marchi. Supporting and standing up with Vic is voice actor Chuck Huber. Chuck Huber is a Funimation voice actor who recently voiced characters like Android 17 from Dragon Ball and Hiei from Yu Yu Hakusho. Chuck Huber testified and gave an affidavit regarding to Funimation and how they treated him. I will leave a video of affidavit from Hero Hiei in which he covers all the information down below.

Here are some quick synopsis points he stated:

12. Chris Sabat disparage Vic’s Christian faith and even called him gay for the clothes he wore.

17. Chris Sabat, Jamie Marchi and Monica Rial expressed negative opinions towards Vic Migogna’s success.

22. Sean Schemmel tried to persuade Chuck to participate in a derogatory video in which they make fun of VIc Migogna by calling him a pedophile. Chuck refused because he’s best friends with Vic.

39. When Sony partnered with Funimation, they stated a “no hug” policy, but regardless, everyone ignored it.

41. It’s only a rumor, but during the casting of Dragon Ball Z Kai, some of the voice actress got recasted because they didn’t want any sexual advances with the Funimation employees.

65. Jamie Marchi. Chris Sabat and Monica Rial and even himself has hugged and kissed so many fans of all ages.

75. Chuck and his wife are concerned that by siding with Vic means they would be targeted as well. Chris Sabat would target them

Here is a tweet showing the affidavit:

Funimation in trouble?! Leak reveals Inappropriate recordings from English voice actors

See the source image

Back in the day, jokes were pretty chill when in comes to topics like homosexuality or sexual jokes. Now we are in 2019 and now any joke can be offensive. Funimation is in hot water or thin ice in this news going on Twitter. Trending today, a leak has appeared online in the anime community showing the English voice actors from Funimation recording inappropriate jokes and dialogue. These voice actors worked in the anime Dragon Ball Z and some actors such as Sean Schemmel, Chris Sabat and Sonny Strait and many more have recorded themselves voicing the characters and performing NSFW acts. These leaks appeared in last night’s livestream from Nick Rekieta of Nick Rekieta Livestream. Nick pointed out that Funimation has broken their own rules by doing these jokes within the workplace and violating guidelines. Some of the dialogue includes protagonist Goku calling his son Gohan a slur word for homosexuality and Gohan performing incest acts with his mother Chi-Chi.

So far, Funimation and Toei Animation hasn’t responded to this news. Fans are even calling out on Funimation especially since Funimation fired voice actor Vic Migogna for accusations on harassment such as hugging and kissing and fans are targetting Funi for letting these voice actors behave like this. In short, fans care calling Funimation hypcrites for allowing veteran voice actors to say inappropriate jokes to work but fire Vic for hugging or even eating a jellybean with a voice actress name.

It manifests itself in everything from seashells and whirlpools in water to the spiral marks on people’s bodies, the insane obsessions of Shuichi’s father and the voice from the cochlea in our inner ear. As the madness spreads, the inhabitants of Kurozu-cho are pulled ever deeper into a whirlpool from which there is no return!

It’s been confirmed we’re getting some MCU TV shows like Moon Knight, She-Hulk and Miss Marvel but so there is no release date yet. We are getting a Star Wars TV series called The Mandalorian. Speaking of Star Wars, get for December because the final movie of the Skywalker Saga is coming to the end for Star Wars. Star Wars Episode IX: Rise of the Skywalker is going to be released on December 20th and this will be an epic finale. Also brewing with Disney, it looks like Disney is trying to come up with a new deal with Sony in order to keep Spider-Man in the MCU.

To end this, here is some videos from Uncle Al. Short and sweet to the point:

Mark 15:16-20 (NKJV) The Soldiers Mock Jesus

16 Then the soldiers led Him away into the hall called Praetorium, and they called together the whole garrison. 17 And they clothed Him with purple; and they twisted a crown of thorns, put it on His head, 18 and began to salute Him, “Hail, King of the Jews!” 19 Then they struck Him on the head with a reed and spat on Him; and bowing the knee, they worshiped Him. 20 And when they had mocked Him, they took the purple off Him, put His own clothes on Him, and led Him out to crucify Him.

Disney announces The Lion King and Aladdin classic game collection!

Think back when you were you were little and you used to play classic licensed games like Disney games on your SNES or Sega Genesis. Here you are an adult and what if I told you that you can play these games again in your modern consoles. It’s been announced yesterday that Disney is planning to release a game collection in which it will have three different game versions of Aladdin and The Lion King including a never before played demo of an Aladdin game; the total games in this collection is seven. This game collection is called Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King. According to IGN, here is what we’re getting:

  • Disney’s Aladdin (Sega Genesis)
  • Disney’s Aladdin (Game Boy)
  • Disney’s Aladdin (Final Cut)
  • Disney’s Aladdin (Trade Show)
  • Disney’s The Lion King (Sega Genesis)
  • Disney’s The Lion King (SNES)
  • Disney’s The Lion King (Game Boy/Super Game Boy)

Based on the trailer, players will be able to play the game with enhance graphics and the ability to jump into any moment in the game. You will also be able to rewind time in order to correct yourself if you make a mistake while playing. Unfortunately this game, as far as I know, will not have the SNES version of Aladdin. My guess is that this game was once licensed by Capcom and now Capcom doesn’t have the rights for the game anymore. It’s pretty common for Capcom because they usually lose the rights to a game. This happened before with the Ducktales Remastered and Marvel vs Capcom Origins. The SNES Aladdin game was designed by Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami.

This game will be released for a price of $29.99 for Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC. It set to be released in the Fall 2019.
