Top 5 “new” anime that should join Toonami

Toonami - December 21st 2019 Intro "TOM 6" - YouTube

Almost like my top 10 post about Toonami and previously aired anime, I have another top post to share with all of you. Last time, I talked about what anime should return to Toonami. Today, I want to talk about “new” anime that has yet to join this Saturday night block. When I say new, I don’t mean new as in current year/season anime that was made in this current year. I say new as in anime that never showed up on Toonami. For example, the anime Hunter x Hunter joined Toonami with an English Dub on 2016, but the anime original aired on 2011-14 in subbed online. Even though anime wasn’t brand new to most viewers, this anime was new and fresh for TV users. We also got some new anime joined Saturdays such as Dr. Stone, Mob Psycho 100 and The Promised Neverland. In this post, I want to list my top 5 new anime that could join Toonami.

5. Fairy Tail

Fairy Tale': Final Season Will Bring Overdue Reunions and Epic ...

We had many long-going anime before such as Dragon Ball, One Piece, Bleach and even the current Naruto Shippuden. Now joining along these titles is these Funimation titles Black Clover and My Hero Academia. I never watched Fairy Tail. but I heard from people that this is a great Shonen anime that is fun to get into if you like anime like One Piece and Naruto. Oddly enough, despite this anime having a huge fanbase, this anime has not appeared on Toonami. One of these days, I do want to get into this series. With this COVID-19 going on, Funimation has been dealing with the dub for the anime My Hero Academia . I feel like once they are done with recording the English Dub of season 4 of the anime, I think it would be nice to see them take a break and give fans something different that is already recorded and will keep people wanting more Saturday nights.

4. Sword Art Online Alternative Gun Gale Online

Sword Art Online: Alternative Gun Gale Online (2018-)

Just like My Hero Academia, Sword Art Online Alicization next arc is hit by the COVID-19 delay. I feel like until things get busy again, I think it would be cool if Toonami includes this spinoff anime, Sword Art Online Alternative Gun Gale Online. In this anime, taking place in the same world of SAO, the story focuses on new characters besides Kirito and the group and the anime centers on Gun Gale Online, which was a game introduced in season 2 of the main SAO story. This anime does have Kirito, but this anime does have cute and likeable characters and it will be a breather from the main story’s “serious tone” in plot. I seen this anime and I like it.

3. Blue Exorcist Kyoto Saga

Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga Review | Brutal Gamer

Anybody remember Blue Exorcist joining Toonami? This is not a sequel to the main anime that aired in 2012. According to sources, Blue Exorcist Kyoto Saga focuses the Kyoto Impure Arc from the manga; specifically, according to Otaku Magazine, this anime takes place after episode 17 where the story sticks to source material. In short, this new version of the anime replaces the second half of the old version. I really like the anime and if you like themes like exorcism and fighting demonic evil, this is something to watch. I would like to see Toonami add this anime on TV. Similar to One-Punch Man season 2, this anime can be streamed anywhere, but last time I checked, the English Dub is exclusive in Hulu.

2. Accel World

VIZ | The Official Website for Accel World

Made by the same creators of Sword Art Online, Reki Kawahara created this series called Accel World. Unfortunately in the community, this anime doesn’t get much attention like SAO. I seen some of the anime, but I say it’s a good and fun series to watch. If you like Sword Art Online and video games, this something to watch. This anime about 24 episodes and I think it will keep viewers entertain.

1. The Rising of the Shield Hero

Amazon.com: Skinhub 12" x 15" Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari The ...

I haven’t seen this anime, but I have others saying this anime is really good, while others say controversial stuff about it. Despite this anime getting bad reviews from ANN and this series dealing with controversial themes, fans have said this anime hits the nail and it’s a great isekai anime. With an anime popular and having the green light for more seasons, I wouldn’t be surprised if Toonami adds this title on Saturdays.

These are just suggestions. What about you guys? What kind of anime you want to see on TV? What new anime deserves a chance for public?

https://www.cordcuttersnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/Crunchyroll.png

In case you missed it, HBO Max is teaming up with Crunchyroll and will allow anime fans to stream popular anime like Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Berserk and other 17 confirmed titles. According to Bounding into Comics, these anime titles will be available for HBO Max subscribers on Mary 27th. This also includes all of Studio Ghibli films.

This may excite anime fans who wants to enjoy watching anime and exclusive content from HBO Max. In recent news of Crunchyroll, it looks like it’s going to be in possession with Sony in which they bought Funimation. According to Bounding Into Comics, internet provider AT&T is in talks of selling Crunchyroll to Sony. Sony currently owns Funimation. According to the site, it is believed that AT&T is selling Crunchyroll to reduce a debt which has been a struggle since last year. Some reports say that the Coronavirus is the reason why the sales have been slow.

God of War (PS4) Review

PSN synposis:

From Santa Monica Studio and creative director Cory Barlog comes a new beginning for one of gaming’s most recognizable icons. Living as a man outside the shadow of the gods, Kratos must adapt to unfamiliar lands, unexpected threats, and a second chance at being a father. Together with his son Atreus, the pair will venture into the brutal Norse wilds and fight to fulfill a deeply personal quest.

• Bold New Beginning — His vengeance against the Gods of Olympus years behind him, Kratos now lives as a man in the realm of Norse Gods and monsters. It is in this harsh, unforgiving world that he must fight to survive…And teach his son to do the same. This startling reimagining of God of War deconstructs the core elements that defined the series—satisfying combat breathtaking scale and a powerful narrative—and fuses them anew.
• A Second Chance — Kratos is a father again. As mentor and protector to Atreus, a son determined to earn his respect, he is forced to deal with and control the rage that has long defined him while out in a very dangerous world with his son.
• A Darker, More Elemental World — From the marble and columns of ornate Olympus to the gritty forests, mountains, and caves of Pre-Viking Norse lore, this is a distinctly new realm with its own pantheon of creatures, monsters, and gods. With an added emphasis on discovery and exploration, the world will draw players in to explore God of War’s breathtakingly threatening landscape—by far the largest in the franchise.
• Vicious, Physical Combat — With an over the shoulder free camera that brings the player closer to the action than ever before, fights in God of War mirror the pantheon of Norse creatures Kratos will face: grand, gritty, and grueling. A new main weapon and new abilities retain the defining spirit of God of War while presenting a vision of violent conflict that forges new ground in the genre.

Makoto Shinkai teases next movie project

https://consequenceofsound.net/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/Weathering-With-You-4-1.jpg?quality=80

Movie director Makoto Shinkai is going to have his hands full with whatever project he hopes to make. According to Crunchyroll, Shinkai wrote on Twitter that he is currently working on another project.

“I’m gradually assembling my new work while following the pace of the production of ‘Weathering With You’ three years ago. I don’t have the brain power to imagine the story, the characters, and the visuals all at once, so I’ve been working on it for months and months, trying to build it up and break it down again. It’s already early summer…”

It has been 10 months since the recent release of Weathering With You was released in Japan and this movie will be released in Japan for home video on May 27th, 2020. There is no news for an English release yet.  Shinkai has also created the movie Your Name. Weathering With You was released in July 2019 in Japan, and this movie would later get an English Dub. If you couldn’t get enough of his movies, keep your eyes peeled for more news and upcoming titles.

“Snyder Cut version” Justice League will be released in HBO Max

A Snyder Cut of Justice League is really coming to HBO Max in 2021 ...

Remember the 2017 movie Justice League movie? Good news for DC fans, it looks like you will be able to see a different version of Justice League in 2021. According to IGN, Man of Steel director Zack Snyder confirmed that he will be releasing the “Snyder Cut” version of Justice League. It was revealed during a livestream watch-along of Man of Steel along with Superman actor Henry Cavill.

Snyder's Justice League director's cut will hit HBO Max

Here is what he said about the news:

“I want to thank HBO Max and Warner Brothers for this brave gesture of supporting artists and allowing their true visions to be realized. Also a special thank you to all of those involved in the SnyderCut movement for making this a reality.”

However, according to THR, it’s unknown if this version will be released as episodic chapters or a full director’s cut movie. If you want to see it, get HBO Max and be ready for 2021.

To those who don’t know, the reason why this Snyder Cut rumor appeared is because Zack Snyder was first given the chance to direct Justice League. Unfortunately, due to a family tragedy, Snyder stepped down and Avenger’s director Joss Whedon took over the project. Due the film’s poor reviews, fans believed if Snyder was still in charge of the movie, things would have been better and this led to the speculation that there was a movie that he intended doing, but it never got to see the light of day.

How do you feel about this news?

Final Fantasy VII Remake Deluxe Edition Gamestop exclusive unboxing

Final Fantasy VII Remake | Game Preorders

FINAL FANTASY VII Remake Deluxe Edition | PlayStation 4 | GameStop

Before I begin this unboxing, I want to remind you all that if you ever want a shout-out or want me to promote your blogs/website, feel free to donate at my Ko-fi. For a small donation, I will do a shout-out to you in my next project article.

I been wanting to do this unboxing post way back in April, but due to work, coronavirus and family stuff, my life has been busy. I also got preoccupied in the recent game of Final Fantasy VII Remake. Besides this, I am here to talk about the game’s package and what version I got. If you have been keeping up with the news I been writing, Square Enix released information on the pre-order bonuses of Final Fantasy VII Remake. There are three versions in which fans can either get the standard, deluxe or the expensive 1st Class Edition. Knowing that I wanted this game when it was first announced, I settled for the deluxe edition; it had many goodies than the standard, but it was also affordable than getting the game over $100. The deluxe edition comes with the game and standard case, a steelbook case with Sephiroth on the cover, a mini soundtrack from the game, DLC such as a Chocobo Chick and Cactuar and an artbook. Depending where you buy it from a retailer, you also get some exclusives. I went ahead and pre-ordered at my GameStop which a tin box and a Shinra keycard replica.

I don’t collect steelbooks often, but they are pretty cool to have. I have a Kingdom Hearts III, Final Fantasy XV, Dissidia Final Fantasy NT and God of War. When you get the case for Final Fantasy VII Remake, you get to have Sephiroth on the cover and on this inside, there are two slots in which you can put you game discs in it. The inside has a picture of Cloud staring at the Shinra Reactor.

The artbook is pretty cool since it does show the designs on the characters and enemies. I am not going to show everything since I don’t want to take up space on the memory. The soundtrack is pretty small. It only comes with 12 tracks from the game.

Last but not least, we have the keycard. The tin box is small, but pretty shiny. The front of the card has the title and logo of Final Fantasy VII Remake and on the back has the ID number and the Shinra logo. If you are wondering, the ID card number does nothing. I was curious and I tried to see if I can use it for an exclusive DLC code since it has the same number digits as a PSN code. However, it doesn’t do anything. This is just something to have and pretend as if you are either a Shinra worker or an Avalanche member trying to sneak into the base.

So this what it looks like if you get the deluxe edition. Did you get this edition too or did you get something else?
