Howdy partners! If you like watching anime and you want to experience a story in rich animation and high definition surround sound, I got some exciting news to share. I hope these anime in Blu-Ray is better than Funimation’s Dragon Ball Super Broly version. Accounced by Viz, the classic action-adventure romance story Inuyasha is coming back in a Blu-Ray set. The first Blu-Ray set will have 27 episodes (1-27). If you haven’t started your collection yet or want to get the Blu-Ray counterpart, you can buy your copy in this year fall.

Even though this one anime gets criticism, it is still loved by fans. Aniplex of America announced that they are planning to sell Sword Art Online II in a complete Blu-Ray set. You can pre-order this copy at Rightstuf for about $160. The anime covers all three story arcs from the light novel such as Phantom Bullet, Calibur, and Mother’s Rosario. It’s unknown if Aniplex is planning to sell the regular DVD collection like the first set. The bonus content is unspecified but this set is scheduled for release on September 24, 2019.

5th Monthly Topic: “Happiness”

Happiness is subjective. We all have different definitions of what happiness means to us and we also feel happiness in varying degrees. This month we will be exploring several questions describing our happiness in our fandoms, communities, and hobbies. Why do we find enjoyment watching anime or reading manga? Why did we decide to join the anime or pop culture communities? Why do we blog about our hobbies or cosplay as our favorite characters? This topic is all about the passions we have for our interests and why they are important to us.

Examples:

Cosplaying

Anime blogging community

Massive otaku collections

Funimation sued for patent infringement?

Image result for luffy mad

source: One Angry Gamer

Looks like Vic Migogna is not the only one suing workers of Funimation, but apparently, Funimation might be in trouble with the FunimationNow service. According to One Angry Gamer website, Kojicast LLC is suing Funimation for infringement in regards to FunimationNow, the streaming service. I am not going to go over what’s already said but you can look it up on the website and watch the video. Apparently, what is going on here is Kojicast LLC has filed a suit against Funimation on April 24th, 2019. Here is what the suit is described:

In the suit it alleges that Funimation used the ‘683 Patent in their FunimationNow streaming technology that allows users to stream Funimation content from their mobile device and then pick up and resume that content on additional devices, such as home computers or smart TVs.

According to One Angry Gamer, Funimation is in trouble for allowing users to use the FunimationNow app to watch a show and then resume watching it on another device.

One Angry Gamer:

It’s only 22 seconds long, and the relevant part is at the 16 second mark, where it advertises episode progress syncing across devices, so you can play or watch the content across multiple devices.

You can read more at the wesbite about this. If this is happening, Funimation is getting sued twice this year. One is for the Vic Migonga case for having coworkers Monica Rial, her boyfriend Ron Toye and Jamie Marchi for deflamation and false accusations. Second is this from Kojicast LLC and FunimationNow.

Feeling green? Funimation confirms the green tint controversy in the Broly movie

Related image

Dragon Ball Super Broly is one of the most successful Dragon Ball movies ever no doubt about that. The movie made over millions of dollars and it gained positive feedback from the fans. Funimation released the movie in April for a DVD, Blu-Ray and Digital combo pack for anyone wanting to own the movie in their hands. However, many fans noticed something really different when watching the movie in Blu-Ray disc. Fans/viewers noticed that the movie had a “green tint” in the animation. This is just for the Blu-Ray version by the way.

Thanks to ANN, Funimation responded to this controversy:

Funimation‘s home entertainment release of “Dragon Ball Super: Broly” utilized the same master as the U.S. & Canadian movie release. It is identical to what audiences watched in North American theaters earlier this year.

According to Funimation, the way fans are seeing this is exactly how it is in the movie theaters. Even so, many fans have complained about this. I have this movie in both Blu-Ray and DVD. From my experience, the DVD version has better quality in picture than Blu-Ray. I haven’t tried the digital yet.

Did you noticed the green tint in your copy or did you luck out?

#DBZ30th Discussion: Who Deserved the biggest L in the Android Saga

Here is another Dragon Ball Z post I wanted to write about in honor of the 30th anniversary of Dragon Ball Z. Ever watched an anime and whenever a character does something stupid, you can’t help but do a facepalm and ask yourself “why did you do this?” If you thought Goku was dumb for endangering his universe in order to fight warriors in Dragon Ball Super, you might have forgotten that this is not the first time. When thinking about Dragon Ball Z, whenever I think of dumb moments, I think of the the Android/Cell Saga. Reason being is because a while back watching the abridged series of DBZ and I watched Dragon Ball Z Kai, I noticed as well as from the fans that some of heroes made a lot of dumb mistakes. There four characters I can think of that did the dumbest acts in this saga. In a way it worked out well, but you can’t help but get frustrated. By the time you finish reading this article, comment down below on who deserves the biggest L out of the four.

1. Krillin – Failing to destroy Android 18 and allowing her to get absorbed

Remember the kiss 18 gave to Krillin after she and 17 woke up and beat up Vegeta? Well, what happens when you got a hold of a incredibly small and dangerous button and pressing it means not only you save the world from an absorbing android, but then you say goodbye to the one that gave you a kiss? In this scenario, Cell has absorbed Android 17 and he became Semi-Perfect Cell. He’s not perfect, but he is powerful. In hopes of stopping Cell from becoming perfect, Bulma creates a device that will instantly kill 18 and foiling Cell’s quest on being perfect. Krillin was willing to press the button but he couldn’t do it on the last minute because he had feelings for 18. In result of this, Cell was able to absorb her and become Perfect Cell.

On the plus side of this, thanks to Krillin’s actions, he and 18 ended up getting married and bearing a child. It’s not a total loss.

2. Vegeta – Vegeta allows Cell to be perfect and gets himself almost killed

What hurts more? Losing to someone or losing to someone and having your pride and ego crushed? Vegeta learned (hopefully) that you should not let your pride be the priority in regards to saving the world. After losing to Android 18, Vegeta gets mad that not even his Super Saiyan form was enough to make him strong. Thanks to Goku, he trains with Trunks in the Hypobolic Time Chamber to increase his Super Saiyan powers. Vegeta comes out powerful than before and decides to test his strength against the cocky Semi-Perfect Cell. After realizing Cell is weak, Vegeta can’t help but feel embarrassed. However, Vegeta gets more than he can chew when he hears that Cell promise him that if he can find Android 18 and absorb her, he will be much stronger than before and give Vegeta a challenge. Vegeta allows him to find her and this causes Trunks to intervene. Trunks tries to tell him that it’s a dumb move and this will lead to Earth’s demise, but according to Vegeta, a perfect fight is more than saving the world. Cell gets the Perfect Form he wanted and then tortures Vegeta in a brutal beating; not even Vegeta’s new move Final Flash was enough to stop him. Vegeta then realizes that all of his efforts in being the strongest Saiyan was pointless.

In the positive note, we get to see Cell in Perfect Form and Cell is a really popular villain the Dragon Ball community.

3 Goku – Giving Cell a Senzu Bean and beating up his son Gohan

Image result for cell hugs gohan

Even when the world is in danger, Goku can see this an exciting opportunity to test his might. Cell created the Cell Games in which in 10 days, fighters from all over the world can compete in order to save the Earth. Goku and his friends trained in these days in hopes of getting stronger. When Goku decides to go first, Goku gives Cell a time of his life and they fight each other. Surprisingly, Goku willingly gives up and lets Cell win. He brings out his son Gohan to take his place and tells Cell that Gohan is actually stronger and will give him a better fight. Unfortunately, Gohan hesitantly agrees to join in the ring, but he refuses to fight back and unleash the untapped potential. Goku puts Gohan in a risk and Piccolo tells Goku that Gohan doesn’t love fighting as much as his father. Goku was willing to endanger his son’s life and to give Cell a challenge.

4. Gohan – Gohan punishes Cell and doesn’t kill him when he has the chance

Image result for cell vs gohan

Image result for goku sacrifice cell

Just because someone doesn’t like fighting, doesn’t mean they are weak. Android 16 talks to Gohan and tells him that fighting is not a sin and not everything will get resolve through words. After Cell kills 16, Gohan gets enraged and transform into Super Saiyan 2. Gohan uses new powers to kill all the Cell Jr’s. that were hurting his friends and he beats up Cell. Gohan beats him so hard, that Cell vomits out Android 18 and he reverts to his Semi-Perfect form. Goku tells Gohan to finish Cell off and end his life, but Gohan decides to refuse his father’s wishes and wants to torture Cell. In desperation, Cell compresses all of his energy and becomes a living bomb. Cell plans to kill himself and the world. Seeing that Gohan should have listened to his dad, he falls to the ground angry. Goku decides to save the Earth by sacrificing his life. He uses Instant Transmission and warps to King Kai’s Planet and this causes Cell to explode and kill Goku and King Kai. If Gohan would have listened to Goku, Goku would still be alive.

So what do you guys think? Who deserves to be first place on getting the biggest L?
