TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome back to another episode of Friday Funny! I hope everyone is doing well this week. We’re halfway through April and now we are in the second half. Before we being these killer memes, here is some quick news. Nintendo is releasing the DLC character Joker from Persona 5 in Super Smash Bros Ultimate for the Switch. If you have money or already bought the season pass, you should definitely buy this character for the 70+ roster. In other news in video games, we have the upcoming Mortal Kombat 11 video game for Switch, PS4 and X1! Taking place after MKX, players will be able to play as old characters and fight against the modern characters. Test your might and see which Scorpian is better, the klassic or the modern version. The game is set to be released on April 23rd and if you pre-ordered the game, players will have access to play as Shao Khan. Next in the news, we have the upcoming holiday Easter! For Christians like me, Easter is an important holiday as we celebrate and remember the resurrection of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Thanks to His resurrection, Jesus conquered death and whoever believes in Him shall not die but will have everlasting life in Heaven and be part of God’s family. Last but not least, we have the anime movie Dragon Ball Super: Broly on DVD and Blu-Ray. This is the first time in a long time we get to see the DB antagonist Broly again but this time he is canon and so is Bardock, Goku’s father.

With this said, let’s fight!

Here are some killer videos for this upcoming Mortal Kombat game:

In honor for the Dragon Ball Super Broly movie DVD release, here are two songs dedicated to the DBZ version and DBS version of Broly. Which Broly do you prefer?

Masculinity

Last month, we explored the meanings behind the terms, “feminine” and “feminism.” This month the OWLS bloggers will explore the concept of masculinity. We each have our own definition of what it means to be masculine and we will explore our definitions using “masculine” characters from various pop culture fandoms. We will discuss how these characters are “masculine” or show signs of a masculine persona. We will also share our personal stories about the amazing men that supported us in our lives as well as sharing some of our experiences growing up as a man or knowing men who struggled with the masculine identity.

*Spoilers ahead!

Out of Print news: A-Channel leaves Sentai Filmworks

https://www.anime-planet.com/images/anime/screenshots/a-channel-3709-1.jpg

Bad news fans, it looks like we’re losing another anime title because of the license of Aniplex. It’s been announced yesterday that the anime A-Channel: The Animation is leaving Sentai Filmworks.

If you haven’t got this anime and you want to buy it, get this anime on the lowest price.

Sentai Filmworks synopsis:

OUT OF PRINT NOTICE: This title is available on the store until 4/30/19 or while supplies last. Don’t miss out!

Toru and Run have been best friends forever, so when Toru learns that she’s managed to get into the same high school as Run, she runs to tell her… only to find Run in a compromising position with yet another girl, Yuko. Needless to say, that makes things a bit awkward at school, with Toru fending off those who might be interested in Run while Yuko and their other girlfriend, Nagi, have to deal with Run’s own penchant for drama. But it’s not all angst all the time, and as the school year progresses the four girls and their many classmates find time to laugh, play and figure out how to handle the unexpected problems life likes to throw at them. Like bugs in the house, accidentally giving each other horrible haircuts, freezing up at karaoke or forgetting to put your underwear on in the morning. When it comes to learning about the real world, there’s always something ‘educational’ to be found in A-CHANNEL: The Complete Collection.

Friday Funny 208: I hate anime!

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome back to another episode of Friday Funny! This is Matthew and I am here to give you your daily needs which are memes. I hope everyone is doing great this week. We are now in Friday and I hope everyone has a safe weekend. I hear the movie Shazam is a great superhero movie and if you haven’t seen it, check it out. Enjoy this movie while it lasts because we have a total of two comic book movies this month. This Friday we have the reboot movie Hellboy this weekend. If you like edgy and dark hero movies, go check it out and see if this one is better the old movies. In the last Friday of this month, we have Avengers: Endgame! This movie is supposed to be 3 hours long! This movie will also have Stan Lee’s last cameo appearance which is pretty sad news. This means that once this movie is done, any other future Marvel movies will no longer have Stan Lee appearing. I did hear people say we should have Deadpool taking over his cameo job. Anything could happen! Next week on Tuesday, April 16th, we have the anime movie on DVD Dragon Ball Super: Broly. If you seen this movie already or you haven’t but you want to own a copy, pre-order your copy from any retailer and this goes for only the DVD/Blu-Ray pack. If you want this movie with an incentive here is what you need to know. Pre-ordering as Best Buy gives you a steelbook case if you buy the movie in the DVD/Blu-Ray pack. Rightstuf gives you a Vegeta pin laptop standee and Funimation gives you a Goku version. FYE gives fans a copy of the Japanese movie poster. So if you haven’t pre-ordered, go check it out!

With all this said, let’s go!

Here are some funny videos:

See you next time!

In the Jinchu Arc, fans get to learn how did Kenshin become the manslayer and where did he got the scar. It also has the iconic final battle with Kenshin and Enishi, a man seeking revenge for the death of his sister Tomoe. It’s announced the previous actors for Kenshin (Takeru Satoh) and Kaoru (Emi Takei) will return to their characters. The movies will be released in 2020!
