TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome back for another episode of Friday Funny! This is me, Matthew and I am here to give you a dose of funny memes for your Friday and to help enjoy your weekend. Before we begin this episode, let’s go over some quick news. Revealed at the NFL playoffs, we got a reveal trailer for the upcoming Marvel TV series Moon Knight. Actor Oscar Isaac takes up the role of the white cloak vigilante. The story involves a guy named Steven Grant who deals with blackouts and memories of another life shared with mercenary Marc Spector. While Steven struggles with his identity and with his mercenary identity Marc, he will get involve with an encounter of Egyptian gods. The series will be on Disney Plus on March 30th, 2022. We’re going to start March with DC’s movie The Batman and we’re ending the month with Marvel’s TV series Moon Knight. In the gaming news, Microsoft buys Activision-Blizzard. Just like Bethesda, Microsoft went and bought another big franchise. They got the rights for games such as Overwatch, Tony Hawk, Call of Duty and even Crash Bandicoot and Spyro. It’s unknown what’s going to happen next, but this is a power move on Microsoft.

December 2021 Christmas Funko Pop Haul

Greetings and Happy New Years to everyone! As of now we are in 2022! I hope everyone had a good Christmas last month and a Happy New Year celebration. You would think with the Christmas season, I would be spending crazy on Funko Pops. However, surprisingly I will tell you what I got in the last month of December.

131+132. Sherlock Deadpool (GameStop Exclusive) and Barista Deadpool

I got these two as Christmas gifts from my best friend Ezra. He knows I like Deadpool and I collect Pops. Once again, as a way to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Deadpool, I got more variants of the red merc. In this GameStop exclusive, I have Sherlock Deadpool. I don’t know how the mind works with Deadpool, but if he is a detective, I hope he can solve the biggest crimes in Marvel. I wonder he is smarter than DC’s Batman. The other figure I got is the Barista Deadpool figure. I guess when Deadpool isn’t causing trouble in the Marvel Universe, he’s serving coffee to customers. Not sure if he got a part time job at Starbucks or he is working at the café in the Friends show. This Deadpool somehow grew a beard and moustache and got his earlobe stretched. If he ever changes his mind on those earlobes, I hope his powers can heal himself.

That’s all I got from 2021. I have a total of 132 figures.

Friday Funny 352: Wake up, San Francisco 2022

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome everyone for another Friday Funny episode. I hope everyone is doing okay in the second week of January. A lot has happened these past few days and some were good and bad. In the good of news, Attack on Titan final season, part 2 has been started and fans are exceedingly enjoying the anime. The anime has been so anticipated that reports from Crunchyroll that the site had some crashes because of the online activity. It doesn’t help too since fans are watching Attack on Titan and a new episode of Demon Slayer. In bad news, we lost another celebrity and he was a former host for America’s Funniest Home Videos and in both series Full House and Fuller House. Comedian and actor Bob Saget died this past weekend. First we lost Betty White in the end of 2021 and now we lost Bob Saget in the first few days of 2022. I hear it’s been a tough few days for some since people are getting sick from Covid and dealing with the cold and the flu. I may not have the cure for these sick ailments, but I can at least prove you some memes to laugh and share.

I think we need a good laugh.

Here is some TV intros. Cheers to Betty White and Bob Saget:

See you next week!

Anime News: AMC Networks purchases Sentai Studios?

See the source image

If companies like Sony can buy Funimation and Crunchyroll, other companies can try. In recent news, the TV studio AMC Network has purchased Sentai Studios which includes the anime distributer Sentai Filmworks and even the streaming service HIDIVE. Here is the statement from them regards to the purchase:

“With strong industry relationships and access to key content creators in Japan, Sentai distributes and curates one of the anime industry’s most diverse libraries of top trending and classic titles, with its content available on Crunchyroll, Hulu and Amazon Prime, among others. Sentai’s HIDIVE streaming service represents a strong new addition to AMC Networks’ portfolio of fast-growing targeted offerings.”

So far based on the reports, Sentai will still continue to produce anime as usual, but it looks like AMC Network is going to help spread out anime in their department in a way like how Sony works with Funimation and Crunchyroll. The business of AMC and Sentai will depend on the sales and how it handles the content.

Friday Funny 351: Lost Episodes

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome back for another episode of Friday Funny! I hope everyone is off to a good start of 2022. Before we begin, I got an announcement for anyone reading this post. I am extending my Friday Funny posts and creating special episodes titled Friday Funny Lost Episodes. The purpose of these Lost Episodes will be like a regular Friday Funny post, but it won’t be on Fridays and it instead will be on random days. If for whatever reason I miss out on doing these Friday Funny episodes, expect a late episode the day after or much later. The reason why I decided to introduce this idea is because this past weekend on New Years Eve, I lost WiFi on the weekend. I wasn’t able to talk to anyone here or any other social media until Sunday night. It got me thinking these past days, what if I lose WiFi again and I can’t get back online until days later and I am forced to skip out on Friday Funny. Or, what if something happens in my personal life (emergencies, or something beyond my power) and I don’t have time to create these episodes. If I can’t post a Friday Funny episode on Friday, expect a lost episode the following day and then I’ll get back into track. That’s the announcement. In other news, actress Betty White died in New Years Eve and she was the age of 99. Sony’s movie Marvel Morbius will be delayed again and will release on April 1st of this year. In case you forgot, Disney Plus is releasing new episodes of The Book of Boba Fett every Wednesday.

Spoiler-Free Review: Sword Art Online the Movie -Progressive- Aria of the Starless Night

story synopsis:

Asuna Yuuki was a girl in the ninth grade who’d never had anything to do with online games when she accidentally put on the NerveGear that fateful day.

The game master speaks.
This may be a game, but it’s not something you play.
“Game Over” means you die in the real world.

Hearing this, the players are sent into a state of confusion, and pandemonium reigns in the game. One of these players is Asuna. Despite not even knowing the rules of this new world, she sets out on her journey to the floating steel castle of Aincrad, its apex not yet visible.

As she continues to live on in this world where death is always a step away, Asuna has a fateful encounter followed by a parting…

Despite being at the mercy of this strange reality, she fights on valiantly until someone appears before her: the solitary swordsman, Kirito…

Friday Funny 350: I diagnosis you with dead

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday and Happy New Year! I hope everyone is having a good day and not down with the sickness. After today is the beginning of 2022. It’s also a new season for Friday Funny next week. I can’t believe we’re in a new year. It felt like this time flew and we just had Christmas. I also hoped everyone had a good Christmas. With us being in 2022, expect some great news in anime, video games and movies. Spider-Man: No Way Home made over $1 billion dollars world wide. We had four Marvel Disney Plus shows and we’re going to be getting more in this year like She-Hulk, Moon Knight and What…? and much more. DC comics is going to be busy with movies such as The Batman, Black Adam and The Flash. It’s not a comic book movie, but you love this blue Hedgehog from the video games. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 will be coming out this year in the spring and he’s bringing in characters like Tails and Knuckles and even the evil, crazy scientist, Dr. Robotnik. In anime, get ready for the return of Bleach. Bleach will be back to animate the final arc of the story this fall at October. 2022 is going to be booming in business.

Let’s bring out the memes. I don’t have cheese and crackers and apple cider for you.

Remember, we can start the year great if you have family.

Friday Funny 349: The Book of The Way

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! It’s also Christmas Eve! Thank God that Christmas is near. I hope everyone is having a blessed time right now as we approach the most beautiful and wonderful time of the year. I hope everyone got their Christmas gift shopping done. I am going to make the news quick and simple so you can enjoy the holidays. Recently, Spider-Man No Way Home came out last weekend and according to fans and the news, this movie is the highest selling movie. It already reached the highest ranking compared to Avengers: Endgame. I will not spoil the movie, but I totally recommend this movie to any Spider-Man fan. Also in the Marvel news, we had the finale of the TV show of Hawkeye and we got a teaser of the upcoming movie Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness. In anime news, we finally got the release date of the anime return of Bleach. Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War will be coming out on October of 2022. Previous voice actors will be reprising their roles along with new voices will be in the anime and some of them are from the game Bleach Brave Souls. Last but not least, get ready for the return of the legendary bounty hunter Boba Fett. The Book of Boba Fett will be on Disney Plus on December 29th. After making a surprise return in Star Wars’ The Mandalorian, fans will be able to see the adventures of this hardcore bounty hunter after surviving the events of The Return of the Jedi. This is the Christmas season to be a fan of Marvel and Star Wars. I don’t care what you call it, but I am still going to call Boba Fett’s ship, the Slave 1.
