One-Punch Man season 2 release on Hulu

Created by webcomic artist ONE and illustrated by Yusuke Murata, the strongest superhero Saitama returns for another season. Announced yesterday, anime license company Viz Media announced that season 2 of One-Punch Man will premiere on April 9th at Hulu. If you plan to watch it, episode 1 will be released on the same day as Japan and you will need a Hulu account. I believe the anime will be subbed only for now until the anime will get an English Dub.

Jan/Feb + Early March 2019 Pop Funko haul!

Welcome collector’s! Once again I want to share with you my Pop Funko collection. As  a collector fanatic, I can’t resist on getting exclusive figures and Pop’s based on my favorite series and genre.

26. Eto (Tokyo Ghoul) from Fall Convention Exclusive 2018

I don’t usually say no exclusive figures and it’s good thing Hot Topic gave shoppers a discount coupon. This was something I been meaning to get since it was exclusive and I did like watching Tokyo Ghoul. I plan to read more of the manga and then watch the anime up to Tokyo Ghoul:re. I don’t know much about this character except that I seen her in Tokyo Ghoul Square Root A (Tokyo Ghoul √2 or season 2). She is a mysterious character who is part of a organization called Aogiri Tree where Kaneki joins them after getting kidnapped by Jason. I do like her design and have her identity concealed.

27. Riku (Kingdom Hearts III)

We waited this long for Kingdom Hearts III. We had spinoffs and Remix collections for the past years and now with KH3 here, fans were eager to get this game. In this new game, the characters have changed and got not only powers but also new fashion and keyblades. Riku’s appearance has been updated since Kingdom Hearts II and he wears clothing strikingly resembling Noctis from Final Fantasy XV. He also has a new keyblade that looks like a car key.  guess the next game will have Riku driving a car as a promotion to becoming a keyblade master.

28. (28a, 28b, 28c). Batman Pocket Pops set

Three is better than one. Unlike the previous figures I collected, these three figures are really small. I got this set from Amazon and with some credit I used, I only spent about $5. I will be honest, I got this because I heard you can also get these figures in the deluxe Blu-Ray edition of the Batman: Animated Series collection. The deluxe edition comes with all the episodes in Blu-Ray DVD including the two movies The Mask of Phantasm and SubZero and it has three small Pocket Pops of Batman, Joker and Harley Quinn. To avoid spending a fortune, I decided to buy the figures separately and I will settle with getting the collection in standard format.

29. Pikachu (Pokemon) Target exclusive

I don’t usually shop at Target because I have problems with their online shopping. Alternatively, I used eBay instead. I like Pikachu as a kid and I still do. A Pop version of Pikachu looks really cute. I am hoping to get the Bulbasaur figure next.

What do you guys think of these figures?

Step aside Dragon Ball and Naruto games, another anime game is going challenge the anime gaming world! Today, I found some interesting news in regards to the upcoming Kill la Kill game, Kill la Kill – IF. First off, game publisher PQube announced that the Kill la Kill game is coming to not only in Japan, but also in Europe. No news for North America yet. Also exciting news is the possibility of a English Dub for the game. Revealed in tweet, someone asked the publisher team if the game will have an English Dub. In response, PQube stated that the game will have English Dub and subtitles for a fan’s preference. If you like Kill la Kill, you have the option of playing the game in English or Japanese language. Also, it’s unknown for a Spanish subtitles, but the team made a comment that it’s a possibility.

There is no release date, but Kill la Kill the Game: IF is expected to be released for PS4, PC and Switch in this year. The game will be sold digital and physical copies and the same writer will be back with an original story.

Friday Funny 202: Stop Singing Let it Go!

TGIF!

Thank God It’s Friday! Yes, thank God it’s Friday! Welcome everyone for another episode of Friday Funny. Today is the official day of March and this means we are getting close to the season of Spring. Let’s move on from February, my least favorite month of the year. February was one of heck of a month for me personally. I didn’t care about the snow because I had to deal with snow storms and trying to get to work. Shoveling snow is not fun either when you have to shovel the steps outside. Also to add on to the stress, we have that controversial news about Vic Migogna. If you don’t know what I am talking about, it happened right around after the movie release of Dragon Ball Super: Broly. Once the movie was out, many fans made accusations on for the voice actor Vic who is accused of harassing his fans by hugging and kissing without consent. It got to the point where Rooster Teeth and Funimation fired him and will be recasted on the characters he done. So far, I don’t know the status right now on the situation, but I really wish this drama will pass on soon. I am tired of seeing fans divided and even resort to hate and violence to reach their goals for the argument. On a small positive note, I saw the movie Alita Battle Angel and it was awesome! Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse won an Oscar and defeated Disney’s movies such as Ralph Breaks the Internet and Incredibles 2. Nintendo released the trailer of the upcoming games Pokemon Sword and Shield for Switch. Overall, February was a mess in my opinion, but I guess that’s from mostly from the internet. We’re in March and I hope this month gets better for us. We have spring coming up to warm us against summer, we have Captain Marvel and Dumbo and we’re getting Episode Ardyn for Final Fantasy XV.

With this said, let’s try and warm up winter!

Since yesterday was Wednesday was Pokemon Day, here are some anime openings to Pokemon according to their generation and the recent trailer of Detective Pikachu!

That’s all folks!

Pirate Crew Tag Episode 2

my pirate crew tag

Talk about getting nominated for the same tag post again. I want to thank Keiko from Keiko’s Anime Blog for nominating me for this Pirate Crew Tag post. This is the second tag post I got nominated, but I really like these tagged posts. If you have time, check out my first Pirate Crew post. Here is the rules:

  • Display the My Pirate Crew logo and add ‘My Pirate Crew’ as a tag.
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and post a link to their blog.
  • Link back to the original post here (so I can compare your crews to mine).
  • Select seven anime characters and give them a position on the crew. These are the positions you can to fill. Warrior, sniper, chef, doctor, scientist, navigator, strategist, mechanic, entertainer.
  • Nominate 5-10 bloggers.
  • Set sail and rule the seas!

Chef: Brock

See the source image

I need someone can make jelly filled donuts. Brock from Pokemon is an excellent character who has experience on taking of Pokemon and even his siblings. He is almost like Sanji from One Piece because he is easily attracted to women except for Jessie of Team Rocket.

Sniper: Vash

See the source image

I am barely getting into this series, but I pick Vash the Stampede from Trigun. For a goofball, Vash is able to use a gun and never miss his target. Looks can be deceiving.

Strategist: L

See the source image

He’s a kind of guy to take risks, but he usually wins. L will be the crew’s strategist. He able to pinpoint every clue and navigate through a tough situation. He can play the enemy as if it’s a big chess game.

Mechanic: Kisuke Urahara

See the source image

He may look like a charmer, but don’t let the hat and cane fool you. Kisuke was a former Soul Reaper Captain who has an incredible Bankai and blade attacks. He is well known in the anime for selling Soul Reaper gadets he made for Ichigo when he wanted to focus on slaying Hollows and have a normal life at school. He even made a gadget for Kon so he can be the superhero Karakurizer!

Scientist: Orochimaru

See the source image

He’s creepy, but his experiments can be useful. He is infamous for trying to do forbidden acts for power. He is able to give power to his servants by giving them the curse marks and he can steal the first Hokage’s genes and plant it on someone so they can use wood jutsu. In addition, he was able to make Danzo an arm filled with Sharingan eyes. If his science doesn’t scare you, I am sure his snake like face will.

Doctor: Krillin

See the source image

You know I had to do it to em. Krillin from Dragon Ball would make an excellent doctor because he always there to carry Senzu Beans. Senzu Beans are special magical beans that can heal any remedy. If you get serious hurt and need a pain reliever, just ask for a Senzu Bean.

Navigator: Joseph Joestar

See the source image

As long we’re not flying any airplanes, I trust Joseph with my life and journey. Joseph is a guy who knows how to travel regardless of conditions. As long he knows someone from the Speedwagon Foundation, he can provide service for our travels. He even knows how to ride camels in the desert even though he said he fell asleep many times watching Lawrence of Arabia and it’s not easy taming a camel.

These are my seven crew members. These are the people I nominate:

Merlin

Lynn

Karandi

Solitaire

Moyatori

Have a nice day!

ONE PIECE STAMPEDE film reveals summer vacation clothes and teaser trailer

Somebody call the fashion police because One Piece is bring in some killer fashion! I found a recent update to the upcoming One Piece film ONE PIECE STAMPEDE in Crunchyroll news. The official One Piece anime site has posted up the “summer vacation” clothes for the 9 Straw Hat Members. It’s pretty common for the Straw Hat crew to get new clothes which is evident in the past films such as Strong World, Z, and Gold. We don’t have any battle outfits yet to see, only the vacation ones. According to the site, the clothes was both designed by the anime staff and Japanese clothes company UT which is sold by Uniqlo.

Last but not least, we also got a teaser trailer for the movie which shows returning characters like Law, Smoker and Buggy along with new characters named Bullet and Festa. It’s unknown what’s the plot but it has something to do with a festival and Gol D. Roger’s, The Pirate King, treasure.

Are you guys excited for the movie? ONE PIECE STAMPEDE is the 14th movie and it will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the anime series. The movie is expected to be released in Japanese theaters on August 19th, 2019.

Friday Funny 201: Time for some memes!

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome back for another Friday. I hope everyone is safe and warm inside rather than being in the rain and the snow. There’s nothing new I have to share so this is going to be really short, it’s mostly going to be a recap. Alita: Battle Angel, from I heard, it’s doing pretty well and it’s a good adaptation to the manga. Someone said online that Alita is a great female lead to the movie and it might even do better than the upcoming Captain Marvel movie in regards to character. Jump Force is already out and the reviews are mixed. Some people say it’s a really fun game where you can play as your favorite anime and fight other characters, but the game suffers from flaws such as connecting attacks and animation in the story. Final Fantasy XV fans can rejoice in new upcoming content for this year. Episode Ardyn is coming out this March and the cancelled DLC are coming back in novel format. This is the last Friday of February and next week is my favorite month, March. It’s only a matter of time before the winter is over and spring will give us warmth.

Shall we begin the memes if you have time?

 

Check out this funny Valentines Day video made by my aniblogger Lita 🙂

To end this post, I am going to do something fun similar to last week’s Friday post. Last week, I added anime opening songs that were Shonen Jump in dedication to the new game Jump Force. This week, I am going to be adding non-Shonen Jump OP songs. Which characters should join Jump Force regardless if they are from Jump or not? Who can take on someone strong as Goku? These are the series that should save the world, Jump World and game review. This is all just a joke lol!

Just a bonus and it doesn’t count, but I will add this. If Dai from Dragon Quest can join Jump Force, then add these four bois!
