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.

90s horror manga Uzamaki gets anime adaptation!

Boo! Just kidding, I got some exciting news for you horror fans.

However, this anime adaptation will be a miniseries that will be have up to four episodes. The anime director is going to be Hiroshi Nagahama who worked on anime Mushishi and Hollywood film composer Colin Stetson who worked on Heredity.

To make this more exciting news, fans of Toonami will be able to watch this on TV on Toonami in 2020! According to the Toonami Faithful, Toonami will help produce this anime and broadcast it on TV just like how they worked on the FLCL anime.

The manga is licensed by Viz Manga. Here is the synopsis:

Kurozu-cho, a small fog-bound town on the coast of Japan, is cursed. According to Shuichi Saito, the withdrawn boyfriend of teenager Kirie Goshima, their town is haunted not by a person or being but by a pattern: uzumaki, the spiral, the hypnotic secret shape of the world.

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!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome back for another funny episode of Friday Funny! I am Matthew and I am here to be your guide today. Today is the last Friday of August. It’s been a blast and now that we are heading towards September, get ready for a seasonal change. Get ready for Fall movies like Joker and It Chapter 2. Get ready for upcoming Fall anime like My Hero Academia season 4 and Sword Art Online Alicization Part 2. In other news, if you been reading on the D23 news, you might get tempted to sign up for Disney+ (Disney Plus). 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. So far things are still in talks and not even Tom Holland is supposed to be talking about it to the public. Fingers Crossed! Last but not least, if you prefer DC comics, get ready for Joker. Joker is coming out on October 4th this year and the character Joker is going to be played by Joaquin Phoenix and the story is going to be realistic as possible with no green screens.
