See the source image

Just like most manga series like Naruto and Bleach, the manga series Black Clover is reaching the end of the story. Reported from Crunchyroll, manga creator Yuki Tabata announced that Black Clover will be entering the final arc of the story; however, fans will have to wait because the manga will be on a break. There will be no new chapters of Black Clover for three months. Here is what Yuki Tabata had to say about the news:

“My intention was to continue to draw [Black Clover] without taking a break, but after consulting with the editorial department, we have decided to take an extended break so that I can properly prepare the final manuscript for the last arc of the series.

I sincerely apologize to all the readers who have been reading the series every week, but I will be back with my full energy to make the finale of Black Clover exciting, so please wait for me until then!”

Tabata wanted to draw more in the story, but based on his team, he is going to use the free time to plan out the final arc. If you are already a fan of the series, you are going have to wait. But, if you are new to Black Clover, use the time to catch up and read the manga and watch the anime. Speaking of anime, a Black Clover anime film is already in the works and the anime will return in 2023.

And the opening of the prison to those who are bound;”

Unfortunately, I don’t have any Easter eggs for you to have in your basket, but I do have some news and memes fir your weekend. In case you didn’t know, Sonic the hedgehog 2 is in theaters and it’s becoming the most watched movie in theaters. This is the second time Sonic has taken number one when competing against the comic book movies. In 2020, the first film came out the same month as DC’s Birds of Prey. Recently this year, it already got more numbers and views than Marvel’s Morbius movie. I saw this movie with my girlfriend and she and I enjoyed Sonic 2. I highly recommend watching this movie and make sure you stay after the credits for a big reveal.

Lastly, but not least, Kingdom Hearts 4 has been announced. With the The Dark Seeker arc concluded way back in Kingdom Hearts 3 and Melody of Memory, Sora is back in this new story arc called The Lost Master arc.

Friday Funny 364: Everything is canon in the His World

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome back for another episode of Friday Funny! I hope you guys are doing well, because I bring you news in the form of memes! If watching Morbius wasn’t enough to satisfy you at the movies, maybe this blue hero can help you. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is out today and based on what I been hearting, this movie is action packed and is filled with so many fanservice for Sonic fans. Taking place the events after the first film, Sonic is leaving peacefully with Tom and Maddie. However, the peace ends when Dr. Robotnik returns and brings in an ally named Knuckles the Echidna. Overwhelmed, Sonic gets the help of a yellow two-tailed fox named Miles “Tails” Prowler. Together, Sonic and Tails must work together and stop Robotnik and Knuckles from taking over their world. Based on what was reported from previous articles, get ready for more projects for Sonic and his friends. Paramount already announced that Sonic the Hedgehog 3 is in the works along with a TV show spinoff focusing on Knuckles. The same voice who is voicing Knuckles in the movie will be returning in this TV project; the voice of Knuckles is Idris Elba. Also revealed is that according to Paramount and Sega, they want to continue to expand on Sonic’s cinematic universe. Rather try to make a plot that plays parallel to the video games, they want to expand the world and more characters. What kind of characters are getting? Is it brand new original characters like Longclaw? Are getting more of Sonic’s game characters like Shadow, Amy or Silver? We can only hope. Last but not least, it has been reported that the final arc of Attack on Titan will still continue until 2023. 2023 is going to part three and maybe conclude the Attack on Titan anime. In case you forgot, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Stone Ocean part 2 is expect to come out this fall of the year. The wait is a struggle.

Ko-fi

Let’s go Blue Justice!

Here is some funny Sonic videos I found to celebrate this movie.

Here’s the theme songs for Knuckles and Tails from Sonic Adventure:

See you next week!

March 2022 Funko Pop Haul *Happy 8 Years of blogging!*

Howdy everyone! You know what this means when you see Funko. It’s time for another Funko Haul post. Without a doubt, this one of the biggest haul of the year so far. I bought myself some pops and some were given to me as birthday gifts. Lets go over my updated figures.

137-140. 

  •  The Drowned (Batman Hot Topic exclusive)
  • Vegeta with apron (Dragon Ball Super HT exclusive)
  • Carnage (Marvel HT)
  • Evil Inuyasha (HT)

I got these four figures from Hot Topic online. These four are exclusives and once I saw them return to the site, I had to get them. The Drowned figure was the cheapest of the bunch. The Drowned is a dark alternate version of Batman from Earth -11. With the money and technology along with taking the throne of Aquawoman, Bryce Wayne becomes The Drowned. Now she and along with Dark Knights are ready to conquer the universe. Nothing really special with this one, but I bought this version of Carnage. I believe this figure is based on the moment where he escapes from jail. The Vegeta figure with the apron is based on the moment where he tried to cook eggs during Dragon Ball. Last but not least, I also got Evil Inuyasha. Sometimes called Demon Inuyasha, this Inuyasha, when under pressure, becomes a violent vicious demon. He becomes so dangerous he doesn’t need his blade and he is willing to attack his friends.

141+142.

  • Pigeotto
  • Michelangelo

For my birthday, my girlfriend got me some pop figures. I got Pigeotto from the Pokemon series and this Michelangelo is from the movie Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze. If you are a classic fan of Pokemon, you would know that Pigeotto was one of Ash’s first Pokemon when he started his journey. I haven’t seen this movie, but I would have assume there is a reason why Mikey is holding a box of donuts instead of pizza. Maybe I should watch it on my free time.

143+144. 

  • Philharmagic Mickey Mouse
  • Demongo

 

Got these guys again from Hot Topic, but with Hot Cash. I got this shiny and sparkly Mickey Mouse figure in his good suit with sorcerer’s hat and the malevolent Demongo. It is Disney World’s 50th anniversary and Disney is going all out on the celebration. Mickey is ready to party and fill the world with magic. From the animated series Samurai Jack, we have this deadly ally of Aku, Demongo. What makes him dangerous is the fact he can summon spirits and make them fight as long as he still standing. However, knowing Jack, he was able to find a weakness and inflict damage to this intimating dark magic user.

145. Mai Valentine from Yu-Gi-Oh!

As a way to celebrate the 25th anniversary Funko released more Yu-Gi-Oh! Pops. I got Mai when I went to GameStop and I also bought Persona 5 Royal and Catherine for the Switch. She’s not an exclusive, but it’s cool to snag a character from a popular anime series. Mai is one tough duelist with her Harpie Ladies and her Amazonian women.

146+147

  • Boruto
  • Raphael

I got these two from going shopping at Barnes and Noble with my girlfriend. I got Boruto from the Boruto series and Raphael from the same movie with the one I got with Michelangelo. This Boruto looks different and if you remembered correctly, this Boruto appeared in the first few pages of the Boruto manga and the beginning of the anime. It’s unknown what happened, but Boruto is wearing the scratched headband from Sasuke, wielding a sword, has a scar on his eye and he is able to unleash his karma powers. This Raphael doesn’t have his sais but he is ready to kick butt. I also bought myself a VizBig Inuyasha manga book.

148. Majin Buu with Ice-Cream (GameStop exclusive)

Last but not least, I got this t-shirt/figure combo set from my friend Ezra for my birthday. This is Majin Buu from the anime Dragon Ball Z. This pink blob monster is scary when angered, but if you give him ice-cream, he’ll be happy. Gotta love this pink character in which I think of him as Patrick Star.

That is all the figures I got from March. It was a big haul. I have a total of 148 figures. I hope you enjoyed seeing my collection. Cheers to 8 years of blogging!
