Friday Funny 402: 22 ended too soon!


Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome everyone for the last Friday Funny of 2022. It’s me, Matthew, and I am here to give something to laugh for this weekend. This will be the last episode for season 8 of Friday Funny. As we start season 9, the number of episodes will rise. Who knows how many episodes will I be doing and how far will I go. Maybe I will more episodes than The Simpsons or the chapters of the One Piece manga. Heck, I could go on far beyond to Sesame Street. Can you believe we are already near the endpoint of 2022? So much has happened and it felt like everything went by fast. With your best memory, what stood out to you the most of 2022? Was the highest and lowest point? The New Year begins this Sunday. It’s time to make goals and resolution for 2023. I hope everyone also had a good Christmas last weekend. I don’t have big news, but I want to say I appreciate the time we had together this year. Thank you for always visiting and leaving a like on my posts. I am hoping to be more active than ever and pay a visit to other blogs. What are hoping for 2023?

Friday Funny 401: Santa v Grinch


Thank God it’s Friday! It’s a good Friday, because this weekend is Christmas. Thanks for joining me for another episode of Friday Funny. I am going to be super quick in this news because I want everyone to celebrate this holiday with their friends and family. In case I don’t respond, I just want to say, Merry Christmas and God bless everyone. I hope everyone has a blessed time. In quick news, it’s been announced that Pokémon will be getting a brand new anime based on the Scarlet/Violet video game. In this new anime, we’ll be getting two new characters taking the lead of the series. Ash and Pikachu will be retiring as the anime protagonist. This young boy made it to the top in the Pokémon world and it’s time for him to rest. Bleach will be airing the two new episodes in the last Monday of December. This will conclude part 1 of the final arc. Released in theaters, if you want to watch a movie besides Avatar and Strange Worlds, go check out Puss in Boots: The Last Wish. The Last Wish is a sequel to the 2011 first movie of Puss in Boots. If you want a festive night, but without a movie about Home Alone or Elf or even Die Hard, we got some interesting rated R movies. We have a John Wick like movie called Violent Night and a slasher Grinch movie called The Mean One. It’s your choice to watch a movie this weekend. You want a Santa Claus vs bad guy movie or a green killer movie?


Pass me the eggnog.

Christmas commercials throw backs:

Let’s remember why we celebrate Christmas.

Merry Christmas everyone. The King of kings was born in a manger.

The anime theatrical movies I seen in 2022

Here we are in the final month of 2022. It almost felt like yesterday when we were back in the summer in my opinion. A lot has happened in this year especially in the anime world. In my anime experience, I got to enjoy some anime movies in the theaters. With the best of my memory, I only seen two movies this year and let me tell you, it has been a rollercoaster. The two movies I seen that left a huge impact on me was Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero and One Piece Film: Red. I seen the previous movies, but never seen any of the movies when it was still in theaters. It’s one thing to see something grand and be one of the many who can witness it, but it’s a different experience when you are in the moment with others with the same interest. I won’t spoil the movies, but I want to share my thoughts and opinions on the movies. I did review these movies in my spoiler-free review articles and I’ll leave the links to the reviews on the bottom of this post.

Minor Spoilers Ahead!
