Sad News: SpongeBob Creator Stephen Hillenburg died

If you thought losing Stan Lee was awful, I got some unfortunate news I recently heard from Twitter. According to the official Nickelodeon Twitter, it’s been announced that Stephen Hillenburg has died. If you don’t know who is Stephen Hillenburg, he is the creator of the late 90s cartoon series SpongeBob SquarePants.

According to Variety, the cause of death was ASL. At the ALSA.org site, ASL, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. It was announced a while back that Stephen was diagnosed by ASL in March of 2017. Now that he is gone, it’s unknown what’s going to happen with the SpongeBob cartoons and how is this going to affect Nick. SpongeBob SquarePants first premiered in May 1st, 1999. In 1993 to 1996, he wrote and directed the cartoon series Rocko’s Modern Life. SpongeBob has been getting a lot popularity from old and new fans. It’s around now season 11 and even has two movies.

SpongeBob SquarePants is a cartoon that I will always enjoy. I remember watching every episode and quotes. It’s part of my life and I am saddened that Stephen Hillenburg is gone. I am thankful for him for giving us something to laugh about. God Bless his friends and family.

My Pop Funko figure collection…thus far

Howdy fans! Welcome back to another fun filled post from yours truly. Some of you already know this, but I like to collect stuff. I collect anime, manga and video games. If I was a Marvel character, I would be the Collector. One of the things I enjoy collecting is Pop Funko figures. You probably seen these bobble-head like figures in stores like Hot Topic, GameStop and Walmart. These figures can come from any media like anime, video games, Disney, movies and other titles. Recently, I did an old post about my collection and I am back for an exciting update. I have officially filled one of my cabinets with Pop Funko figures. And yes, these figures are blocking my anime DVD collection too; they my personal protectors. I have two that is not in this picture and on a different shelf because I ran out of cabinet space.

I am going to go over what I collected and how I got them.

1. Kirito from Sword Art Online

Kirito was my very first figure ever owning. I got him in 2017 for a birthday weekend at a trip to Little Tokyo.

2. Donald Duck from Kingdom Hearts (Hot Topic Exclusive)

On my actual birthday in the same year, I bought this exclusive figure from Hot Topic. This was my first exclusive figure. This is Donald Duck from the Kingdom Hearts series in his royal wizard uniform.

3. Goofy from Kingdom Hearts (GameStop Exclusive)

I got this one from GameStop. Unfortunately, I don’t remember getting this same day as the exclusive Donald figure or day after. This version of Goofy is in his royal knight uniform from Kingdom Hearts.

4. Tony Stark w/Iron Man Helmet from Spider-Man:Homecoming (Summer 2017 convention exclusive)

I got this one from winning a contest from the official Pop Funko Twitter page. All I had to do was to follow the account and retweet for a chance to win. Winning this was an awesome experience. It was my first convention exclusive.

5-7. Asuna from Sword Art Online + Drax from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 bobble head (with gun blaster) + Sora from Kingdom Hearts

For Christmas of 2017, I got two figures; one from Sword Art Online and the other was Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. My younger brother got me Drax (carrying a gun) and my friend Allison got me Asuna. Drax is my favorite character in Guardians of the Galaxy. I needed Asuna since I had Kirito and I felt like these two need to stay together. My friend Ezra also got me a figure since he knows I collect them. I got Sora from Kingdom Hearts; this is Sora in his KH2 appearance.

8. Super Saiyan Trunks from Dragon Ball Super (Hot Topic Exclusive)

I got this figure on the same day when Dragon Ball FighterZ was released in January 26th. Of course, I bought him and thanks to my parents encouraging me, I also bought Dragon Ball FighterZ.

https://i.ebayimg.com/images/i/122864766337-0-1/s-l1000.jpg

9-12. Sonic with a Ring from Sonic the Hedgehog + Shadow the Hedgehog from Sonic the Hedgehog + Dr. Eggman from Sonic the Hedgehog + Crash Bandicoot

I got this sweet deal from the Box Lunch store at a mall. I was happy to snag these babies since I did grew up playing these games and it’s nice having toy versions of my heroes and villains. I wish I could have got Cortex in the sale. Now I need to try to get Spyro.

13. Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

I actually wrote this in a late birthday post a while back. Once again, Allie knows m best. She got me baby Groot to go with my Drax figure, even though the box doesn’t say it and this is from movie GotG: Vol. 2.

14 + 15. Mickey Mouse (Steamboat Willie) + Mickey Mouse (Gold Diamond Barnes and Noble edition)

I like to use Twitter to find sales on anything. When I heard the Diamond Mickey Mouse figure was back for limited time at Barnes and Noble, I didn’t hesistate. For an added bonus, I bought the Steam Boat Willie version of Mickey Mouse to go along with the golden diamond version. Mickey Mouse did start off in a cartoon called Steamboat Willie.

16. Sora in Guardian Form from Kingdom Hearts III (Fall Convention 2018 exclusive)

As you can tell, I enjoying grabbing exclusives. When I heard there was an exclusive Sora figure being sold at the Walmart site, I unsuccessfully missed out. I was indecisive and debated if I should get this one or buy it with other figures for free shipping. When I told myself to get this one only, I added it to my cart, but then it was too late and it was out of stock. There was other retailers selling it approximately $40 and I thought it was a ridiculous price. The following day, @churozz , an expert in Kingdom Hearts merchandise news, gave an update that the figure was back in stock. Without hesitation, I bought it. This version of Sora is from the upcoming Kingdom Hearts III but with a new form called Guardian Form. There’s not much about this new form, but based on videos, Sora is shown fighting Heartless at Hercules world and his keyblade is able to transform into a shield and pummel his foes with incredible power.

17 +18. Venomized Tony Stark/Iron Man + Venomized Steve Rodgers/Captain America

Thank you Barnes and Nobles for your sales. Barnes and Nobles was having a buy one and one half off sale for any Pop figures. As someone who loves Venom and Marvel heroes, I bought these two. As a way to promote Sony’s movie Venom, Pop Funko designed these new figures which has the Marvel characters overtaken by the alien symbiotes. Ironically, there is no news of a Spider-Man figure with the black alien on it. I grabbed the Captain America and Iron Man versions to participate for the sale.

19. Sora with Dual Blasters from Kingdom Hearts III (Funko Insider Club from GameStop)

Some exclusives are hidden in websites. I bought this one when I found out from @churozz account that this figure was selling at GameStop. This version of Sora is from one of the trailers of Kingdom Hearts III where Sora can transform his keyblade into a pair of guns.

20. Hercules from the Disney movie Hercules (Limited  Edition Glow Chase)

I recently got this from a contest from the Twitter account @fundotcom_ and it was pretty simple to enter. It’s a pretty cool figure. I wonder what Glow Chase is.

With all these figures in total, I have 20 figures. Do you collect any Pop figures too? What is your favorite figure you enjoyed from this post or do you have one you cherish the most?

*This is my 87th post on my streak!

Spider-Man season 2 confirmed and dated!

https://i2.wp.com/oyster.ignimgs.com/wordpress/stg.ign.com/2018/02/MSM-120-PR-4-720x405.png

It’s been a while since we seen the first season of Disney XD series Spider-Man. From learning to use his powers to facing enemies that were once friends, Peter’s life with school and being a hero is no walk around the park. Announced at Comicbook.com, Disney XD will bring the animated series Spider-Man with another season. In this new season, new actors will play as new characters that will affect Peter Parker. Season 2 begins on June 18th on Monday and the first episode will be an hour long and it’s hinted that it will make Spider-Man’s world “upside-down.”

Here is what described according to the site:

Season two will feature higher stakes and epic battles as Spidey faces-off against new heroes and villains, some of which are voiced by exciting guest stars, including Sofia Carson (Disney’s “Descendants”), Booboo Stewart (Disney’s “Descendants”), Nathaniel Potvin (“MECH-X4”), NASCAR racer Ryan Blaney and social media sensation Teala Dunn.

The second season finds Peter Parker in his “sophomore year,” as he’s no longer an inexperienced new superhero nor a brand new student, at the intimidating Horizon High. However, his foes are also no longer inexperienced and his ever-growing Rogue’s Gallery is focused on taking Spider-Man down. Picking up where season one left off, the stakes are much higher in Peter’s personal life and Spider-Man’s superhero life.

He also must learn how to balance working at “The Daily Bugle” to afford tuition at the prestigious Horizon High while surviving Doc Ock’s series of obstacles in an attempt to get rid of Spider-Man once and for all. The action-packed season will continue to touch on Spidey’s relatable themes, including friendship, loyalty and heroism while staying true to its signature sense of comedy.

[OWLS April Blog Tour] The Lion King 2: African Melody that roars like a Christian Lion

Blog Tour Topic: Melody

In one way, music is form of healing and self-expression. For this month’s topic, we will be exploring some of our favorite musical pieces (anime/drama OSTs, movie soundtracks, music genres and etc.) and how it has impacted our lives and/or reasons why we enjoy listening to it. 

Just in case, there might be spoilers, but I will try to keep it a minimum. Thank you Allie for the idea! Also, make sure you read Lynlynsay’s post about melody at her blog.

Happy 24th Birthday Celebration! – My Top 5 favorite written OWLS posts

You might be wondering on Twitter, what does the numbers and pictures mean whenever I am online, this was a countdown to this amazing post and I am ready to share!

Happy Birthday to me!

https://media.giphy.com/media/Nqmda7PEpBXXy/giphy.gif

https://i1.wp.com/i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/629/657/7ac.gif

https://i.imgur.com/JGznGU0.gif

Besides the music and dancing, I want to let people know that today is my birthday and I turn 24 this year. Goodbye 23 and hello 24! For my birthday from my family, I got movies Justice League and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. My birthday is on March 28th. For this special occasion, I want to do a special top 5 posts on my favorite OWLS posts I have written for the OWLS. If you don’t know, I am part of the OWLS, a special blogger group where promote self-respect and acceptance on others. We use our writings and videos and we talk about topics using media such as anime, video games or other things to help talk about awareness and importance of respecting others in real-life. As a member I take pride on doing my hardest to write out a post for a topic in hopes I can help the team. I may not do videos, but I hope I can speak out with words on papers (in a essence). So without a further ado, here are my 5 posts in which I am proud of recently. This doesn’t mean I don’t like my other writing, but I am choosing the ones that stood out the most.

5. OWLS Blog Tour: Samurai Jack – The 50 Year Treasure Hunt

This is something I thought about since this something I came up with the idea, but the Chief Creative Officer Lyn from Something from LynLyn wrote out the prompt and title which is called “treasures”. I mentioned to the group we should talk about something in regards to suicide and/or any mental illness like depression after finding out the lead singer Chester Bennington from Linkin Park committed suicide. Taking in considerations, this was approved and we all talked about in September about the importance of treasuring something important and what happens if something goes awry. Instead of anime, I talked a cartoon called Samurai Jack and focusing on the series finale of season 5. In this season, I talked about the hero Samurai Jack going through 50 years of suffering in a dark future and trying to find his way back home. I mentioned that while going through the challenges, he has thoughts and temptations of killing himself to find peace. Suicide is a serious topic because it can happen to anyone and it’s the least expected people. It’s important to be there for others and treasure something that holds us important and gives us the reason to live.

4. OWLS Blog Tour: One Piece – A man’s source of strength is a warm heart

As a way to end 2017, we did a tour about having warm feelings and how it is important to share love. I used another anime favorite called One Piece. I talked about the main character Monkey D. Luffy is a caring young man who is willing to pick fight to help a friend. Regardless to history or appearances, Luffy will fight because he cares about friends and not afraid to die trying. I mentioned that us Christians, we need to love one another regardless of appearances and it brings us close to understanding.

3. OWLS Discussion: Bleach – A “Disruptor” in the anime and real world

This is the first OWLS post I did when we first started the OWLS blog tour in January 2017. In this one, we talked about “disruptors” and how can disrupting something can actually be good. I used the anime/manga series Bleach and talked how Ichigo disrupted ideas and order. I briefly mentioned how someone like Ichigo went against the justice of the Soul Society and then reformed them and made some friendly allies with them. I was the first person to volunteer myself to start the tour.

2. [OWLS March Blog Tour] Sword Art Online: Kirito the One Man Squad

Recently made this year, for the topic of Squad and discussing what it means to have good friends, I choose Sword Art Online the second time. The first time was in March 2017 and the topic of Sanctuary. In this post, I talked about Kirito how he ended up choosing to be alone while trapped in the game Sword Art Online. I mentioned how he went through isolation and pain and briefly mentioned that he finally found someone who cares about him in the end. I also briefly mentioned about myself how I deal with being alone and then later meeting my friend Allie from Visionaries.

1. OWLS Blog Tour: Sword Art Online – Finding Sanctuary in Gaming

I made this post in last year in March 2017 where we talked about Sanctuary and finding inner peace. I used my Sword Art Online as my anime choice for the topic. I used Takuto’s posts from the Anime Cafe Blog about Leafa and incorporated his words and my own words. Using examples like Leafa and Sinon, I mentioned how when life gets hard, whenever these girls go into VRMMORPG, they escape from their problems and become free. I used my own experience with video games how I enjoy being in my own world and feeling empowered. This is a post where I feel close to and it represents how much I love anime and video games and being in peace. This is one post I really enjoyed writing and I wrote it down by heart.

Thank you

I want to thank everyone for supporting me for these years and thank to every member of the OWLS. I am happy to use my gift of writing to help support a cause and bring us together. I am willing to participate in the months where I am available and I will give my time for you guys. The people who read these posts, thank you very much for taking the time to read them and sharing it to others. Together, we can make a difference and form a friendship beyond anyone’s imagination. God bless you all.

Allie’s Final Project on the OWLS

My Current Pop Funko collection thus far

You probably seen this in hobby stores or game stores like GameStop, Box Lunch or even Hot Topic. They are called Pop figures and thanks to the company Funko, many characters from video games, cartoons, anime, comics and other pop culture genre have been converted to these bobble head like figures. Some actually are bobble heads while others just have a stiff head. Think of these as the bobble heads from sports like the NFL and NBA, but instead of collecting your favorite athletes, you’re collecting your favorite characters from Marvel, Dragon Ball, Batman or even Rugrats. I will be sharing you my collection and I will give you a brief description about how I got them.

Friday Funny 142: New Season for 25 cents

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome back to a new episode and season of TGIF Friday Funny! Before we start this episode, I got some new news for you. As we enter 2018, get ready for new stuff like video games and movies! Currently in January, we will be getting some new fighting games: Dragonball FighterZ, Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition and Dissidia Final Fantasy NT. In Dragonball FighterZ, Publisher Bandai Namco of Entertainment and Developer Arc Work Systems will be working together and create a new Dragonball fighting game. It won’t be like Budokai, Tenkaichi nor the Xenoverse and instead, the game will be played like the Guilty Gear series. The animation will be similar to the manga and anime and it will have characters from Z and Super along with a new character named Android 21. In Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, Capcom will re-release Street Fighter V but it will include free updated content such as DLC characters to the recent roster, an arcade mode where you can unlock illustrations and even new V-Triggers for fun combat. If you already have Street Fighter V, the Arcade Edition will be a free download so you don’t have to pay again. If you are like me and didn’t buy the game, you can buy the Arcade Edition instead and the price is about $35. Last but not least we have Dissidia Final Fantasy NT. In this game, players will be able to control their favorite heroes from FF1 to FF15 along with Type-0 and Tactics. The game will be in PS4 and the with the help of Team Ninja, the characters look amazing. Ever want to play as Noctis (FF15) and fight Sephiroth (FF7) or have Cloud (FF7) fight Kefka (FF6)? Now you can!

As random news, January 4th is the day where the Cartoon Network classic Ed, Edd’n Eddy debuted on TV. This is my cartoon growing up and it’s something I would watch everyday besides SpongeBob SquarePants. Ed, Edd’n Eddy first premiered in January 4th, 1999 and now that we are in 2018, this cartoon is 19 years old. The show starred three young boys who’s named both starts with Eds, who creates these devious scams in hopes of robbing kids in order to buy jawbreakers. We have the first Ed named Ed who is the dumbest but happy kid who has bad odor but with great strength; he also loves chickens and eats butter toast with gravy. He is voiced by Matt Hill who surprisingly did voices for anime characters such as Kira Yamoto in Gundam Seed Destiny and Bankotsu in Inuyasha and Mou Ten in Kingdom. Second Ed is Eddward but he nicknamed Double D because his name has two D’s. He is the smartest and clean freak kid who likes to stay organize and creates plans for the group. He wears a hat but no one knows why he wears it and the only people who seen his head is his own friends Ed and Eddy. Double D is voiced by Samuel Vincent who did many voices in cartoons and anime. In anime, he did Dexter from Hamtaro, Sidoh from Death Note, and just like Matt Hill, he was in Gundam Seed Destiny and he voiced Athrun Zala. Last but not least, we have Eddy. Eddy is the leader and the shortest of the group. He is the one comes up with the scams and he is the greediest kid. He constantly brags about having a cool and intimated brother and he wants to be the popular kid in the cul-de-sac. Eddy is voiced by Tony Sampson. He also did anime but unlike the previous two he didn’t do Gundam Seed Destiny and instead, he was in Mobile Suit Gundam Seed as Miguel Aiman and he voiced as Toya Kinomoto in Cardcaptor Sakura.

Sorry for this extensive information, but I love this show and I could go on but I need to start this episode. Here is something to laugh!

To conclude this post, here are some Canadian humor!

Life as many doors Ed boys! See you next time!

1.) If you could visit any fictional world where would you visit?

I would like to visit the world of Final Fantasy XV. It would be cool to explore Eos while riding ona Chocobo, meeting Cindy and CId at Hammerhead and explore Altissa and hopefully meet Lunafreya. I love FFXV!

2.) What’s your favorite fictional setting?

I think I would like a combination of a fantasy and future setting. Anime like Sword Art Online and Yu-Gi-Oh! Vrains or even the cartoon Loonatics Unleashed (I think my friend Allie influenced me to love the future more lol) would be awesome. We will have access to advanced technology and have powers.

3.) If you could be any character for a day who would you be?

I would like to Kirito from Sword Art Online. He has amazing gaming skills and it would be cool to feel like a hero.

4.) What’s your favorite thing to do?

I like to play video games. I am a gamer and I like to spend hours on playing through the story or just having a great time being number one.

OWLS Blog Tour: Samurai Jack – The 50 Year Treasure Hunt

“Treasure”

There are moments in our lives where we lose our sense of self-worth and value and as a result, we find ourselves deep in darkness or drowning in the ocean. However, every person in this world is a treasure—we treasure ourselves or we are treasured by others—and at times, we may need to be reminded of that. For this month’s topic, we will be exploring pop culture characters who have suffered from mental illnesses, depression, and/or suicide. We will be discussing how these individuals cope with these issues, the reasons for their emotions, and how they handled the situations they are in.

***Mental illness, suicide, and depression are pretty serious topics and we hope that our OWLS post will give you some solace.

(I will keep the spoilers a minimum. If not, it will have spoilers!)
