Friday Funny 384: Do you like waffles?

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome everyone for another sizzling weekend. It’s me Matthew and I am here to give you memes and news, but mostly memes. Before we begin, let go over some fast news. This is the last Friday of August and starting next week is going to be Labor Day weekend. While some people have three days off, other’s have three days of work. Labor Day is usually the unofficial beginning of autumn. Autumn is the time of cooler weather, harvest holidays like Halloween and Thanksgiving and pumpkin spice lattes. Besides weather changes, Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is the latest anime film in theaters and fans raving this sensational film. According to records and sources, this movie is already breaking records and even outranked the first Pokemon movie. In regards to animation and movies, I have been hearing the major bad news to those who have HBO Max. According to news sources, Warner Bros and Discovery did a merge where these two companies can come together to enhance streaming. However, due to the action, HBO Max has cancelled plans for animated movies and even started to remove shows to appeal for an adult audience. Because of the actions, fans were displeased to the point where they are unsubscribing HBO Max. iTunes stepped up their game and started to release their Cartoon Network shows on their app store where fans can buy cartoons like Ed, Edd’n Eddy and Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends. Last but not least, we finally got a release date for the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog game, Sonic Frontiers. Sonic Frontiers is coming in on November 8th this year. It’s coming out a day before God of War Ragnarok is released. This is going to be an interesting month.

Let’s do it and end this August Friday!

Here is a story trailer for Sonic Frontiers:

Ragnarok is coming and Sonic will be here this November!

Friday Funny 383: Goku and Naruto vs Ichigo and Mickey Mouse vs… She-Hulk?

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Hi everyone, it’s me Matthew. I hope you guys enjoy this new episode of Friday Funny. By the time you read this, I’ll be inactive online. Reason being is because I am at Disney California Adventure celebrating my girlfriend’s birthday. However, I planned ahead and created this episode post to kickstart your weekend. Before we start the memes, let’s go over some Dragon Ball news. Today is the theatrical release of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero. Taking place after the events of Dragon Ball Super: Broly, Gohan and Piccolo must work together and fight the evil military army of the Red Ribbon Army. Can Gohan and Piccolo protect the world without Goku and Vegeta? Speaking of Goku and Vegeta, these two Saiyans joined Fortnite recently. You can play as Goku, Vegeta, Lord Beerus and Bulma. Now you can blast a Kamehameha on Naruto, Venom, Darth Vader and John Cena. Last but not least, and it’s odd news, apparently fans believe that the final Bleach anime arc Thousand-Year Blood War is going to aired on Disney Plus. So far, Disney and Viz hasn’t made any comments or announcements and some believe it’s a fake rumor. If this is true, Mickey Mouse will invite Ichigo and his friends to the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. This isn’t the first time Disney got ahold of anime. Anyone remembered Naruto Shippuden on Disney XD? Oh yeah! Before I forget again. Last, but I promise it’s the last time, but definitively not least, the Marvel TV show She-Hulk is streaming on Disney Plus. Watch as Bruce Banner teaches his cousin Jen on how to use her Hulk strength and keep her cool as an attorney. Featuring in this show, we have the Abomination, Wong and Daredevil. Will you be watching this show?

Ko-Fi

Let’s game on! Where are we landing at boys?

Enjoy your weekend, heroes!

Friday Funny 382: Forget Evil Superman, be afraid of Evil Flash!

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome everyone for an episode of Friday Funny. I hope everyone is staying cool in the heat and away from trouble. Here’s another Friday for memes and news. In big and not really new news, Ezra Miller is charged for felony. At this point, I feel like he can be Reverse Flash instead of Barry Allen Flash. In other news, it’s been revealed that Sony will be absorbing another big company on their plate. Not only they bought Funimation and merged with Crunchyroll, they recently got the rights to the shopping site Right Stuf. Whether you like it or not, Sony will be having full control on the anime content and where your money is going. Besides anime, Disney and Marvel will be dishing out new content this month of August. We have the short series called I Am Groot. Focusing on the wooden baby hero, Groot, Disney released a collection of short episodes featuring Groot and his adventures. On August 17, get ready for She-Hulk. Watch as Bruce’s cousin take on the justice system and show off her Hulk-ish strength. If that doesn’t get your attention, maybe you will watch it for Daredevil. If you have Disney Plus, you can watch the movie Lightyear. Going off topic and into my life, I saw the movie DC League of Super-Pets with my girlfriend. It was funny and cute movie and I recommend it if you love your dog very much. One more thing, it’s been announced that the next Sonic movie has a release date. Sonic the Hedgehog 3 is coming to theaters in December 2024!

Ko-fi

Let’s do this!

As a way to celebrate the release date announcement for the Sonic the Hedgehog 3 movie, here is some theme songs from the movies.

Gotta go fast!

I can’t wait to see the Justice League fight against the Injustice League.

Bye! God bless you all!

Friday Funny 381: Poor Unfortunate Souls

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome back for another episode of Friday Funny! We made it through July and here we are in in the month of August. It’s me Matt and I am to give you both memes and news. A lot has happened in July. What was your favorite moment in July? Now that we’re in August, get ready for some new events coming up. In anime news, get ready for the upcoming movie Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero. If you live in the United States, you can watch this movie starting at August 19th. In other anime/manga news, looks like Square Enix got into trouble in the manga business. Recently, Square Enix released their digital manga on an app service called Manga Up! in which subscribers can pay to read their favorite chapters such as Soul Eater and My Dress-Up Darling. However, after launch, fans got frustrated when Square Enix started to add uncensored black bars on the chapters. Even in scenes where the women are fully clothed, black bar censors are still apparent. Hopefully, they get this patched up otherwise, ditch the service. Last but not least, I bring some sad news. Recently, we lost an actress named Pat Carroll this week. Pat Carrol is iconic for her voice acting as Ursula in the Little Mermaid movie as well as the sequel villain Morgana. Even though we’re getting DC’s Black Adam and Shazam 2 movies, the anticipated Batgirl movie has unfortunately been shelved. Don’t expect to see Batgirl on the big screen or in HBO Max anytime soon. In my own news, I finally got the chance to read all the volumes of the classic Dragon Ball manga. It was both a silly and action pack series. From the first appearance with Goku and Bulma to the Red Ribbon Army and to the epic finale with Goku vs Piccolo, the classic Dragon Ball series is a ton of fun. I also got to see the movie Your Name. with my girlfriend. It was a great and cute movie.

Ko-fi

Let’s start this Friday!

Rest in peace, Pat Carroll

See you next time!

 

Anime News: Crunchyroll acquires anime shopping site Right Stuf!

Crunchyroll and RightStufAnime.com

Looks like this is either good news or bad news depending if you like some merger news. Recently announced today, the anime streaming service platform Crunchyroll has purchased the anime shopping site, Right Stuf. Now that Sony owns Crunchyroll and they recently merged with Funimation, they now have anime’s biggest shopping sites.

Here is what Shawne Kleckner, CEO of Right Stuf had to say about this merging news:

“For 35 years, Right Stuf’s mission has been to connect anime fans with the products they love. Joining forces with Crunchyroll allows us to accelerate and scale this effort more than ever before. There has never been a more exciting time to be an anime fan than today!”

While this maybe good news for some since this means that Sony wants to expand anime to a wide audience, this news may also be bad for some. With Sony taking over, it’s also been revealed that Sony will be removing erotica items from Rightstuf. You will no longer buy any erotic manga, anime or figures with this merge news. However, according to the FAQ on Removed Items, there might be a way to still buy these items. In one of the questions asked, if you recently placed an order for an 18+ item, your item will be transferred to a separate website called EroAnimeStore.com. According to the site, the president of the site stated that despite the new changes with the Crunchyroll and Right Stuf acquisition taking place, they want to make sure fans can still buy their erotic products. The site is still in construction, but this is the place where you will do business from now on if you want your erotic goods.

What do you guys think of this news?

July 2022 Funko Pop Haul

Hey everyone! As you all know, this is another Funko haul post. It’s nothing too grand, but as always, I have to keep you guys updated on my collection.

149: Pharaoh Atem from Yu-Gi-Oh!

I got this figure from BoxLunch in one of my dates. This figure is big and it has the character Pharaoh Atem/Yami Yugi on the throne from the Yu-Gi-Oh! series. In case you don’t know who this is, in Yu-Gi-Oh!, the young Yugi Muto solved the Millennium Puzzle and awakened the soul of the Pharaoh. The unnamed Pharaoh took refuge in Yugi’s heart and together, they fought against ancient evil who wants bring destruction to the world. As the series came to the climax of the story, the Pharaoh’s name was revealed as Atem and he ruled ancient Egypt centuries ago.

Thank you Kazuki Takahashi for giving us Yu-Gi-Oh!

I also bought this manga anthology from Barnes and Noble. Akira Toriyama’s Manga Theater is a collection of short stories he wrote besides Dragon Ball and Dr. Slump.
