Proverbs 6:17-19 (NKJV) – Seven Abominations

17. A proud look,
A lying tongue,
Hands that shed innocent blood,

18. A heart that devises wicked plans,
Feet that are swift in running to evil,

19. A false witness who speaks lies,
And one who sows discord among brethren.

Pirate Crew Tag Episode 2

my pirate crew tag

Talk about getting nominated for the same tag post again. I want to thank Keiko from Keiko’s Anime Blog for nominating me for this Pirate Crew Tag post. This is the second tag post I got nominated, but I really like these tagged posts. If you have time, check out my first Pirate Crew post. Here is the rules:

  • Display the My Pirate Crew logo and add ‘My Pirate Crew’ as a tag.
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and post a link to their blog.
  • Link back to the original post here (so I can compare your crews to mine).
  • Select seven anime characters and give them a position on the crew. These are the positions you can to fill. Warrior, sniper, chef, doctor, scientist, navigator, strategist, mechanic, entertainer.
  • Nominate 5-10 bloggers.
  • Set sail and rule the seas!

Chef: Brock

See the source image

I need someone can make jelly filled donuts. Brock from Pokemon is an excellent character who has experience on taking of Pokemon and even his siblings. He is almost like Sanji from One Piece because he is easily attracted to women except for Jessie of Team Rocket.

Sniper: Vash

See the source image

I am barely getting into this series, but I pick Vash the Stampede from Trigun. For a goofball, Vash is able to use a gun and never miss his target. Looks can be deceiving.

Strategist: L

See the source image

He’s a kind of guy to take risks, but he usually wins. L will be the crew’s strategist. He able to pinpoint every clue and navigate through a tough situation. He can play the enemy as if it’s a big chess game.

Mechanic: Kisuke Urahara

See the source image

He may look like a charmer, but don’t let the hat and cane fool you. Kisuke was a former Soul Reaper Captain who has an incredible Bankai and blade attacks. He is well known in the anime for selling Soul Reaper gadets he made for Ichigo when he wanted to focus on slaying Hollows and have a normal life at school. He even made a gadget for Kon so he can be the superhero Karakurizer!

Scientist: Orochimaru

See the source image

He’s creepy, but his experiments can be useful. He is infamous for trying to do forbidden acts for power. He is able to give power to his servants by giving them the curse marks and he can steal the first Hokage’s genes and plant it on someone so they can use wood jutsu. In addition, he was able to make Danzo an arm filled with Sharingan eyes. If his science doesn’t scare you, I am sure his snake like face will.

Doctor: Krillin

See the source image

You know I had to do it to em. Krillin from Dragon Ball would make an excellent doctor because he always there to carry Senzu Beans. Senzu Beans are special magical beans that can heal any remedy. If you get serious hurt and need a pain reliever, just ask for a Senzu Bean.

Navigator: Joseph Joestar

See the source image

As long we’re not flying any airplanes, I trust Joseph with my life and journey. Joseph is a guy who knows how to travel regardless of conditions. As long he knows someone from the Speedwagon Foundation, he can provide service for our travels. He even knows how to ride camels in the desert even though he said he fell asleep many times watching Lawrence of Arabia and it’s not easy taming a camel.

These are my seven crew members. These are the people I nominate:

Merlin

Lynn

Karandi

Solitaire

Moyatori

Have a nice day!

Pirate Crew Blog Tag

I want to thank Melinanimeland for tagging me for this Pirate Crew Blog Tag. This is a tag post I find pretty interesting. I like pirates as much as I like ninjas and knights. Before I begin, let me share you the rules of this tag post. It’s pretty self-explanatory. I choose seven anime characters and give them their roles for my crew. Once I am satisfied, I can set sail. After that, I get to choose

Rules:

  • Display the My Pirate Crew logo and add ‘My Pirate Crew’ as a tag.
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and post a link to their blog.
  • Link back to the original post here(so I can compare your crews to mine).
  • Select seven anime characters and give them a position on the crew. These are the positions you can to fill. Warrior, sniper, chef, doctor, scientist, navigator, strategist, mechanic, entertainer.
  • Nominate 5-10 bloggers.
  • Set sail and rule the seas!

To make things more fun, I won’t be using any One Piece characters for this challenge. If you don’t know, One Piece is an anime about pirates. There are nine roles in this tag post, but the rules says I can choose seven out of it. I am going to try and fill all nine. I am a pirate and I am here to break the rules, because I am Captain Matt-in-the-hat!

Warrior:

Jotaro Kujo (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventures)

Out of all the warriors or tough characters in anime, I think Jotaro will fit in my crew. Jotaro is a tough guy who never loses his cool. With his stand, Star Platinum, he can unleash super fast flurry of punches on his enemies. Star Platinum has super fast reflexes that he can even defend from gun shots. Even without a stand, Jotaro can still beat up people and solve his problems with his fist. I need someone who can stay calm and fight his way in a situation.

Sniper:

https://img1.ak.crunchyroll.com/i/spire3-tmb/cf30bcd7704f20705ed8e44c00e036321452125469_full.jpg

Jigen (Lupin III)

In my crew, I am going to need someone who can shoot fast and accurate. I pick Jigen from the Lupin series. Jigen is Lupin’s friend and partner when stealing valuable items and he is kick on his revolver. He is pretty serious in his mission and doesn’t play around like Lupin.

Chef:

Ignis Scientia (Brotherhood: Final Fantasy XV)

Technically he is from a video game, but he is also in the anime spinoff! I pick Ignis to be my cook. Besides him saying “I come up with a new  recipeh” every time he finds an ingredient, Ignis has no problem cooking any dish. He is not far from his kitchen especially when camping. When he is not cooking, he is equipped with some magical daggers that can pinpoint any enemies weakness and even pierce down on anyone with his lance. Ignis is one man who can fight and stay sharp and well-mannered in the kitchen. Give this guy an Ebony drink.

Doctor:

Orihime Inoue (Bleach)

I choose Orhime for this position. Orihime not only has the ability to heal, but also reject the phenomena of matter. Simply put, she can reverse things to the point it never happened. She did this on Grimmjow’s arm whenit got cut off. She can also create barriers as shields to protect her friends and even heal at the same time. She is worthy for my crew.

Scientist:

Bulma Briefs (Dragon Ball)

What’s better than a scientist? A scientist who is rich. Bulma will make an excellent crew member. With her owning the Capsule Corporation, she can use her vast amount of money to help our gear. She can use her capsules and contain big objects. She can even make a radar to find the dragon balls. I need someone who can make something in flash.

Navigator:

Kirito (Sword Art Online)

I choose Kirito to be the navigator. I pick him since I feel like he would be a guy who got more experience traveling. As a solo player in the anime, he doesn’t have to worry to about exploring in his leisure and he knows about a dungeon having traps. With his sensory skills, he could help us detect hidden areas and explore uncharted areas.

Strategist:

Kakashi (Naruto)

I was going to pick Shikamaru because he’s intelligent, but I feel like Kakashi is smart like him, but with more fire power. Kakashi is a very smart ninja and with the Sharingan, he can copy moves from his enemies and use it against them.

Mechanic:

Edward Elric (Fullmetal Alchemist)

He may be small, but don’t let size deceive you. With the power of alchemy, Edward can transform objects into anything without needing a transmutation circle. He can even use his mechanical arm as a blade. I need a crew member to fix and update our ship in a instant.

Entertainer:

Yugi Muto (Yu-Gi-Oh!)

Sometimes we just need to play a game to ease away the tension. I pick Yugi as my entertainer. I am always entertained when watching duel in the anime. If my crew wants to play a card game and battle each other in duel monsters, we should see if we can take down the king of games. Playing a card game will also help us think ahead and improve our fighting skills when fighting.


Here are the people I tag:

  1. Ya Boy Jack
  2. dreager1
  3. Krystallina
  4. Rocco
  5. Shaddowcat99
  6. Chizure

Real Neat Blog Award by Rocco

I want to thank Rocco from Secluded Observation for nominating me for the Real Neat Blog Award. Let’s get started on this award!

The rules of the award

  • Display the logo
  • Thank the blogger for the award
  • Answer the questions the one who has nominated you
  • Nominate 7-10 bloggers
  • Ask them 7 questions

7 Questions:

  • What helps you remain passionate about blogging?

The reason why I still like blogging is because it helps me share my voice and be expressive. If you met me in person, I am mostly collective and not very good at speaking what’s on my mind. However, whenever I get the chance to voice my opinions and show off my fun side, I want to write and show people that I am here and please listen. I like sharing my interests with others.

  • What is something you know now about blogging that you wished you knew when you began?

I wish I knew a bit earlier when started blogging the importance of writing and how can blogging can be a career. Back then, I treated this just a hobby and not having any goals. I was pretty hesitant on making this like a business.

  • If you could meet your favourite voice actor/actress who would it be?

I would like to meet two voice actors. I would love to meet Erika Harlacher. Erika does the voice for Kurapika in Hunter x Hunter and Violet from Violet Evergarden. I would love to geek out with her and talk about Kingdom Hearts. Another voice actor I would want to meet is Vic Mignogna. Vic is the voice of Broly in Dragon Ball, Edward Elric in Fullmetal Alchemist and Qrow in RWBY. This guy’s voice is legendary.

  • Would you like to get in to the animation/entertainment/videogame industry?. If so, is Shirobako or new game an inspiration for you to do so?. If not, then why did you decide to go in to said industry?

If possible, I would join one and be part of the blogging community. I would love to handle the blogs and keeping up with social media for the anime industry. I want to be able to respond and give fans information.

  • If you weren’t blogging, would you try something like a podcast or youtube?

I would probably do some YouTube on gaming. I probably won’t be livestreaming, but I would love to show off random video game gameplay of myself playing games.

  • If your favourite videogame/anime character came to life, how would you spend your time with them?

I would want Shinichi from the anime Outbreak Company to come to life. We would spend the day watching the anime and having debates on who is the best girl on any series.

  • What two anime/videogame world would you live in?

In video games, I want to go to the Chao Garden in the Sonic Adventure games. I want to go to a special place where chaos live peacefully and I can raise them.

Another world I want to go is Twilight Town from Kingdom Hearts. I want to eat sea-salt ice-cream on top of the clock tower.

As an added bonus, I want to live in the world of Dragon Ball, but I to experience Dragon Ball like the manga Dragon Ball: That Time I Reincarnated as Yamcha. Without spoiling the story, the story is about a student who accidentally dies and gets resurrected as Dragon Ball’s joke character Yamcha. Using his knowledge about Dragon Ball, the student decides to make Yamcha the strongest warrior in the series. If I was in Dragon Ball, I would like to become a character and make them stronger than a Saiyan.

Happy New Years! – Christmas Pop Funko Haul!

Hello everyone, welcome back again. I hope everyone had an awesome Christmas. If some of you got money for Christmas for shopping, I hope you had a fun time shopping and got some sweet deals. For me, I got some giftcards and money, but I mostly used my money to cash in some awesome Pop Funko figures. Also, my friends Allie and Ezra got me some figures from different series I like. Here is what I received during the Christmas season.

21-22. Seto Kaiba and Blue-Eyes White Dragon (Yu-Gi-Oh!)

I got not one but two character figures from the anime series Yu-Gi-Oh!. My friend Allie got me these two since she knows I like Yu-Gi-Oh! Well, technically speaking, we both love the series. Blue-Eyes White Dragon is one my favorite monster card from the series since I like the color blue and dragons are so cool. As for Kaiba, I didn’t like him in the beginning of the series, but as time passed, I like his personality and how he didn’t care about anyone except for his brother Mokuba. I also admire his goal on trying prove himself he’s better than Yami Yugi. I just need two more Blue Eyes so I can summon the Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon Pop Funko Figure! Like the abridged series version says, screw the rules I have money!

23. Sora in Monster Form (Kingdom Hearts III)

My friend Ezra got me this for Christmas. As we are getting close to Kingdom Hearts III, Sora appears to be showing up in different forms as he fights the darkness in each world. In this form, Sora is taken in the appearance as a monster as he enters Monsters Inc. Sora teams up with Sully and Mike as they help get Boo back home, but also avoiding the evil Vanitas.

24-25. Nico Robin (One Piece) and Renji (Bleach)

I got these two characters from Christmas money at a toy store called Optimus Toys. My first choice was getting Nico Robin from One Piece. Nico Robin is an anime crush I love in the anime One Piece. She is my favorite girl in the series. As for the other figure, I got Renji from Bleach. Renji was recently added to the Bleach Pop Funko figures along with the addition of Grimmjow and Renji in his Bankai Form which is an exclusive at GameStop. Renji is one of my favorite characters in the series Bleach.

I have a total of 25 figures! If you want to see the first twenty figures from the beginning, check out the link I left for you at the bottom. This is my collection of 2018!

Happy New Years!

[OWLS December Blog Tour] Final Fantasy XV – Noctis, the Miracle King sacrifice in the dark world

Miracle

Tis the season where miracles happen. For December’s theme, we will be exploring faith in anime and pop culture. We will discuss some of the miracles that enter a character’s life during their darkest moments. Some of their questions we will explore is how does a “miracle” change a person’s life? How do we define miracles? Can miracles only happen due to a legend or a mystical being? Or do miracles happen every day, but we just don’t see it? We hope that you enjoy this holiday season! Happy Holidays! –  the OWLS Team ❤

Please be sure to read Karandi’s post. The next person to do their post on this topic is Carla.

*Will contain spoilers for Final Fantasy XV.

Merry Christmas to everyone of 2018

There’s nothing to say but Merry Christmas to all! I am going to be real with you, this is going to be a real short post because I want everyone to enjoy this Christmas. Go out and be with someone you care about. I didn’t plan to have top 5/10 post about cartoons or anime. Instead I want to share some pretty awesome Christmas cartoon specials that everyone should see at least once. Some of these are content sensitive because Christmas is about the birth of Jesus Christ. Now in today’s society, public TV channels are censoring anything that has to do with Jesus or anything Christianity. Even saying Merry Christmas is considered offensive and everyone thinks Happy Holidays or Xmas is better. I am against saying those and I am happy to say Merry Christmas. I will say it again, Merry Christmas and God bless you. If you find this post offensive because I said Merry Christmas, I am not sorry and you have my permission to unfollow me and leave. Anyway, Merry Christmas!

A king is born. He was born in a manger.

Psalm 139:23-24

23. Search me, God, and know my heart;
    test me and know my anxious thoughts.

24. See if there is any offensive way in me,
    and lead me in the way everlasting.
