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?

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?
