Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome everyone for another exciting episode and a brand season of Friday Funny! I hope everyone is doing okay this week and I hope everyone is having a good start to this month. Whether you are starting your New Years goals or resolutions, I hope you can spare time and enjoy some memes. I am going to keep this really short since there is not much news going on I couldn’t find so please bear with me. Besides me finishing The Mandalorian, I also seen the new Star Wars movie The Rise of Skywalker. It’s a pretty fun movie to watch and it helps forget about the issues I didn’t care about in The Last Jedi. Still, however, this movie is pretty flawed and not the perfect Star Wars movie. Now that Star Wars is finished, Disney has plans for more Star Wars in the future now that Skywalker Saga is complete. I hear that Disney wants to do the movies focusing on the Knights of the Old Republic and make the movies almost like the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Speaking of Marvel, Paramount Fox is finally going to be giving us the long awaited movie New Mutants. In this movie, a group of youth mutants have to learn to face their fears and harness their powers in a hospital institution. This movie will be an action and horror film. Next week we have the upcoming video game Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot. In this new game, players will be able to experience Dragon Ball Z in an action-adventure RPG gameplay where players interact with characters and relieve epic moments. If you like Dragon Ball video games, check out my post I made sharing my experience in Dragon Ball games.

Last but not least, enjoy these memes regardless in which generation you come from!
To end this Friday post, I will end it by sharing an anime movie that is coming out in theaters for Jan 15th and 16th. This movie is called Weathering With You. It’s a movie directed by Your Name creator Makoto Shinkai and producer Genki Kawamura. If you guys plan to see it, I hope you have a fun time. Here is the synopsis and trailer:
The summer of his high school freshman year, Hodaka runs away from his remote island home to Tokyo, and quickly finds himself pushed to his financial and personal limits. The weather is unusually gloomy and rainy every day, as if to suggest his future. He lives his days in isolation, but finally finds work as a writer for a mysterious occult magazine. Then one day, Hodaka meets Hina on a busy street corner. This bright and strong-willed girl possesses a strange and wonderful ability: the power to stop the rain and clear the sky…
Enjoy this weekend everyone!
Announced yesterday, the official Pokemon Company announced that they will be releasing brand new Pokemon details in Nintendo’s Pokemon Direct news presentation. Today, we got some new information in regards to Pokemon video game news. If you are enjoying the recent games Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield or you are like me and starting out new, get ready for some exciting new DLC. Pokemon Sword and Shield will be getting an Expansion Pass in which players will be able to do more than what was originally given to them at the start. Players can accessorize more, returning Pokemon will join the Galar region with new forms and even Starter Pokemon will get new Dynamax forms. New areas such as Isle of Armor and The Crown of Tundra will make an appearance players will be expecting new Pokemon to battle and new trainers to fight. So far there is no news on when will this update will be released.
Last but not least, get ready for the return of Pokemon Mystery Dungeon. If you don’t know what it is, Pokemon Mystery Dungeon is an action-adventure RPG game where players are talking Pokemon and they work together with other Pokemon and tackle missions. The first game made its debut in 2006 and now this game will be heading to Switch this March 6th, 2020 according to the official Nintendo site. This new game will be called Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX.
It looks DC is packing in some heat and ready to give us a comic book film ride this year in 2020. If you like Harley Quinn, you are going to like this movie focusing on her and other deadliest women in DC comics. Returning to play as the harlequin criminal, Margot Robbie leaves the Joker and causes trouble in Gotham in DCEU’s first rated-R movie. Warner Bros and DC has just released a trailer for the upcoming movie of Birds of Prey. Birds of Prey will feature Harley Quinn along with some powerhouse women as they take on Gotham’s ruthless gangs such as Black Mask. This movie will be released on February 7th, 2020.
Not to be confused, Birds of Prey is the first rated-R movie of the DCEU movies. The DCEu includes movies like Shazam, Wonder Women, Batman v Superman and the upcoming soft reboot movie The Suicide Squad. Todd Philips Joker movie is its own stand alone movie that is not connected to any DC movie universe and that movie is also rated-R. This movie is also called Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn).
Whether you love or hate Sword Art Online, it’s coming back for Toonami. If you remembered, Toonami premiered the English Dub of Sword Art Online: Alicization in 2019. However, this was just the first act of the Alicization arc and the second act was premiered on sites such as Crunchyroll and Funimation. If you are one of those people who wait for the anime to be in English Dub so you can watch, don’t wait any longer because it is coming sooner than you think. Aniplex announced that the second cour of Sword Art Online: Alicization will be coming to TV on January 18th. The second part of the anime is called Sword Art Online Alicization War of the Underworld. This part of the anime covers volumes 15-18 of the light novels. This anime will be replacing season 2 of One-Punch Man.
If you haven’t seen the anime, don’t read the synopsis for this anime (according to LN volume 15):
Administrator’s defeat has come at a heavy cost: The death of Eugeo as well as the mental decline of Kirito. Six months after the epic battle atop Central Cathedral, Kirito spends his days in the Underworld wheelchair-bound; bereft of emotion or even a will to live. Although Alice and Bercouli do what they can to help him, it isn’t long before the armies of the dark territory are start to move in earnest. The “Final Stress Test” has begun. But will Kirito be ready?
If you know me, you know that I love watching anime and I also like spend time with video games. As an anime fan, I grew up to the anime Dragon Ball Z and as a kid, I did both by playing the games, collecting the toys and watching the anime. Dragon Ball is an iconic anime/manga series that revolutionized many Shonen Jump titles and it helped gave birth to other titles like Naruto, One Piece, Bleach and My Hero Academia. Most of us grew up watching classic anime like Dragon Ball, Sailor Moon, YuYu Hakusho on Toonami after school and that’s why you still see adults who are still showing support for these titles. Back in the day and even still today, Dragon Ball is one of the series that is still making video games. From the Budokai series to the Xenoverse and now to the upcoming Kakarot game, Dragon Ball is still alive and kicking on consoles and PC. Doesn’t matter how many times Naruto releases the Ultimate Ninja Storm and Clash of Ninja games or other companies tries to new titles like My Hero Academia and Attack on Titan, Dragon Ball is one of the popular series that knows how to sell in the video game world. In a video I watched from a YouTuber named DevilArtmis, he goes over a quick review on all the Dragon Ball games he played up to 2019.
I may have not played every Dragon Ball game but I do want to share the games I played from 2002 during the era when the Game Boy Advance and GameCube was the highlight of gaming. I am going to briefly discuss these titles by systems.
If you want to take a break from Disney’s Marvel movies like Avengers, I got some interesting news from 20th Century Fox. 20th Century Fox is a movie company well-known for creating movies focusing on the X-Men, Wolverine and Deadpool. With years of delay, it looks Fox is finally going to be giving us the spin-off movie New Mutants. Unlike the past movies, New Mutants will be focusing in the world same place as the X-Men, but the setting will be more action and horror. Revealed in a trailer, New Mutants will be in theaters in April 3rd, 2020. Even after being bought by Disney, this movie is still happening.
Greeting fans of anime and manga, I have some exciting news to share that has been on the buzz on the internet. Remember that dark, paranormal Shonen Jump manga Death Note? According to Crunchyroll, Death Note creators Tsugumi Ohba (author) and Takeshi Obata (artist) are coming back together and releasing a special one-shot manga of Death Note. This one-shot will take place after the events of Death Note. It’s unsure if other places will be able to read this but Japan will be able to read it on February issue (Feb 4th) of Jump SQ.
Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome back in this new year and I am happy to see you guys in the year 2020. Don’t ask if I have 20/20 because my eyes are not perfect. I hope everyone had a great New Years and I hope you keep your goals and resolutions all the way this year. I don’t have big resolutions this year I want to do but for goals, I do want to keep on writing and continue to make my website grow even more than last year. I have goals I want do for my website such as continue to do more reviews but go off to other things besides anime. For personal goals, I probably want to save money and be a little bit strict in this year. Maybe it’s just my imagination but I really want to me more responsible with my funds after spending a lot this Christmas season especially since I will have to be looking for some medical insurance this year. Besides by life, we are in the new year and that means get ready for some new upcoming moments in movies. anime and video games. In video games get ready for the upcoming anime game Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot and the PS4 DLC for Kingdom Hearts III called Re:Mind. I also recently finished watching The Mandalorian from Disney+ and I want to say it’s really good show if you love Star Wars. Season 2 of the series will come back on Fall 2020. If you need more Star Wars besides The Mandalorian and the movie Rise of Skywalker, get ready for the return of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The animated series that was once in Cartoon Network and a remake to Genndy Tartakovsky’s 2003 cartoon is coming back with season 7 which will link the story from Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. Star Wars: The Clone Wars was canceled in public TV after Disney bought the rights of Star Wars and now with Disney+, they’re going to finish the story. Since we are in the new year, this marks the new season of Friday Funny; this is season 6

Deadpool 3 in works with Marvel Studios
Marvel is a real popular franchise that no only still gives us comics of our heroes like Avengers, Spider-Man and X-Men, it has also expanded into movie companies. Disney holds some rights for characters and gave us movies like Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy and Black Panther. Fox has X-Men, Deadpool and Fantastic Four. Sony has Spider-Man and Venom. Thanks to an agreement with Disney and Fox, Disney has more access to Fox titled characters from Marvel meaning we could get a potential X-Men and Fantastic Four movie withing the Avengers world. However, this also includes the rated-R comedy action movie Deadpool. Today, I found some interesting news in regards to Deadpool and the people behind Marvel Studios. In a talk show from Live with Kelly and Ryan, Ryan Reynolds (actor who plays as Wade Wilson/Deadpool) made an appearance on the show and stated that he is currently working on Deadpool 3. He also mentions that they are working on the movie at the Marvel Studios. So far there is no release date or no confirmation on any returning directors or producers. Some people are speculating that if the movie is going to be working at Marvel Studios it could be possible for Deadpool to be in a world where Avengers exists. What do you think?
Rumor news: Tom Holland MIGHT make a cameo in Venom 2
Even though Spider-Man is part of the MCU, he is still owned by Sony. If you remembered a whole back, Spider-Man was briefly removed from the MCU world all because Disney wanted a new deal with Sony where they get 50/50 of income from the webhead and this caused Sony to pull him away; fortunately, Spider-Man is still in the MCU with the Avengers with a settled deal. However, Sony does have plans for Spider-Man in their own Sony Universe with Venom and Morbius.
What I am about to say is not 100% confirmed but it is a rumor. According to rumors and sources, there is talks of having Tom Holland Spider-Man appear in the sequel movie Venom 2. Thanks to a deal with Sony and Disney, Marvel-Sony is in talks of having MCU Spider-Man appear in their own movies. However, there are some negotiations that needs to be talked before anything is confirmed. If it is true, sources say that this Spider-Man might be an alternate version where he is not involved with the MCU world. Another claim is that if it is MCU Spider-Man, then that would mean Venom is also part of the MCU.
How do you feel about this rumor news? Do you want this to happen?
If you have Disney+, you might be watching the TV exclusive show The Mandalorian. The Mandalorian is a TV series based on the world of Star Wars focusing on the bounty hunter called the Mandalorian also nicknamed as Mando. The Mandalorian takes place after The Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. The last episode was premiered this week. However, this is not the end of this bounty hunter and his adventure. According to a tweet, executive producer Jon Favreau announced that the Disney+ show will be getting a season 2 in Fall 2020. In the tweet, he shared a picture of a Gamorrean, a pig like alien species which first made its debut in Star Wars Episode IV: Return of the Jedi.
