I got some exciting news for Berserk fans. It’s been a while since we got any news related to Berserk ever since the manga creator Kentarou Miura passed away, the manga stopped running and it was forced to end. Fans mourned the loss for Miura and knew the fact that Berserk will not have any new chapters. However, released online from sources and the official Berserk Twitter, the story of Berserk will be continuing once more. With Miura passed away, his longtime friend Kouji Mori will be taking over the story along with the Studio Gaga (Miura’s team of assistance). Kouji Mori is the manga author of a manga called Holyland and he is a close friend of Miura. He and the rest of the team will do their best to continue the story of Berserk as close to Miura’s vision. The manga will be releasing new chapters in the 13th issue of Young Animal on June 24th. The manga will release 6 chapters and it’s going to conclude the “Fantasia Arc/Elf Island Chapter” along with a brand new upcoming arc.

I seen this movie and I want to say that this movie was an incredible ride and this movie was amazing to watch. I recommend this movie. I also watched that Chip and Dale: Rescue Rangers movie this past weekend with my girlfriend. This movie was unique and really random. It’s not the best movie I seen, but I also wouldn’t call it terrible. It felt really surreal and weird at the same time. After watching this movie, I suddenly felt like watching the 90s Disney Afternoon shows like Goof Troop, Darkwing Duck and Tailspin.

Let’s begin the memes. *Insert any Obi-Wan memes*

Hello there, enjoy some Star Wars videos:

See you in June!

Spoiler-Free Review: Lupin the IIIrd Fujiko’s Lie

Rightstuf synopsis:

Who needs the truth when you can believe in the lie?

There’s a secluded house in the desert where Fujiko Mine helps a man named Randy take care of his frail son Gene. It’d be idyllic, if it weren’t a lie. Randy’s embezzled a load of cash, and Fujiko couldn’t care less about the family. Or… is that the lie? When the corporation Randy stole from sends a bizarre man to kill him, Fujiko heeds Randy’s request to protect Gene, and goes beyond the pale for the boy.

Still… could that be yet another lie? Gene knows where the money is, and refuses to say until he’s avenged his father. What will Fujiko do? Will her lies spin out of control? Or was every man just playing to her tune from the start ? All things may not be what they seem in Takeshi Koike’s newest Lupin the 3rd film, Fujiko’s Lie!
