Day 14 (G)rant Slam – The Animanga Festival

This is day 14 of the Animanga Festival! This festival was collaborated and created by Auri and Naire from Manga Toritsukareru Koto. I hope I am doing this event correctly so excuse me if I mess up. In this prompt I am going to be doing some nitpicking as I discuss my personal rants in the animanga community. I am going to borrow the awesome blogger Takuto strategy and write down top 3 picks but each with a category. Here the categories:

  • Rants towards Anime
  • Rants towards Manga

Rants towards Anime

1. Where’s the next season?

Image result for anime season meme

Imagine yourself watching your favorite anime. You just got done with the last episode and you are left with a void in your heart. As you eagerly look on social media on any news on your favorite anime, you see online of news of other anime getting a season 2, 3 or even 4, but you don’t see any announcement of your favorite title. Have you ever been so mad that your anime left you in hanging during an epic plot? What’s worse is that what if your series is going on during the manga and light novel? Even if the books reached a conclusion, the chances of it getting animated is slim. This is a nitpick that gets in my nerves. We are in 2019 and we’re getting a seasons 2 and 3 of The Rising of the Shield Hero and a season 4 of My Hero Academia, but when are getting a final arc of Bleach. Bleach may not have the One-Thousand Year Blood Arc yet, but at least you can use the characters and even the main antagonist in the game of Bleach Brave Souls. It’s so annoying when your favorite show is on a cliffhanger. No anime season, no movie, no OVA, nothing!

As far I know, we’re not going to be getting the final arc of Bleach:

2. qualifications to be an anime fan 

Image result for name 10 other anime

Regardless of how many titles you watched or hours you put into a show, if you like anime, you can be considered a fan if you enjoy it. Have you ever met someone who tried to convince you that you are not an anime fan unless you watch a certain title (Dragon Ball, Sailor Moon or whatever common title) or someone tells you that you have to watch a total o 10 anime in order to be called fan? I feel like this is pointless. If you want to be an anime fan, you just gotta enjoy anime! It’s simple and throughout my years of watching anime, I don’t remember hearing anything about following rules in order to be called a fan. Being a fan means you appreciate the work and story of anime and if it makes you happy, you can be called an anime fan. If someone told me that if watching Sailor Moon makes me a fan, I probably wouldn’t be considered a fan. I haven’t seen Sailor Moon yet, but if I have seen Dragon Ball, Devilman Crybaby, Clannad, Fullmetal Alchemist and 20+ titles except Sailor Moon, then I am still not a fan of anime. I think this whole anime requirements is a waste of time.

3. Sub? Dub? Why not both?

Image result for both gif

When watching anime, I am mostly concerned about the story and characters. When given the option on which language I want to enjoy an anime, I usually pick English Dub because I don’t want to be reading and watching the same time. Some people can multitask and watch anime in subtitles because it makes the characters sound authentic in Japan’s culture. Regardless on what preference you choose, I am not picky on dub. I hate it when people criticize others based on preference. Rather than fighting about what sounds better, shouldn’t we just focus on the anime’s main premise which is usually the plot, characters. themes? We’re both watching the same anime. There is no perfect dub or sub. What’s important is that these voice actors are lending their voices to make our favorite characters alive.

Rants Towards Manga

1. Don’t be a pirate, don’t use scan sites to read manga

Image result for one piece pirate

I am guilty for doing this in the past. I used to read scanned manga chapters of titles like One Piece and Naruto online whenever the manga in America was slow and Japan was ahead. I later realized it that doing this means I am not supporting my favorite authors. When you are not buying manga, you are not giving money to the creators and company who are giving us the ability to give us manga. We are fortunate enough to have manga outside of Japan. These creators are doing their best to give us a good story for our cup of tea. I know it’s painful to wait for the next week chapter but shouldn’t have to rely on using a shady website for our reading pleasure. This is why Shonen Jump continues to grow and give fans an easier opportunity to read the recent chapters of your favorite series at the same time as Japan in a affordable price.

2. No Spoilers!

Image result for spoilers meme simpsons

Have you ever watched an anime and then when you write about it on your blog or social media, someone who read the manga decides to tell you what happens later in the story? Nobody asked for this! Some anime titles started off as manga such as My Hero Academia, Dragon Ball and Fullmetal Alchemist. As the manga is running, the anime tries to catch up to the manga’s plot. There two types of anime viewers in the community: one group of people watches the anime first and then the manga or some read the manga and then jump into the anime. If you are someone who reads first and then watch, don’t go spoil the plot assuming they did the same. Some people may not have read the manga or light novel. Let others get surprised and shocked.

3. Manga creators are people too

Image result for usopp bandage

Have you read a manga and then get hit by this last message on the bottom of the page saying “series will be back on this date”? Whenever this happens, a manga creator takes a break and doesn’t put up the next chapter in the next schedule. Sometimes they need a break or some people have a medical reason. Eiichiro Oda, One Piece creator, is a workaholic and he would work even if he was sick or hurt. There was a moment where he took a long break because he didn’t listen to his body and he was in pain. Hunter x Hunter creator Yoshihiro Togashi takes constant breaks he has back issues. Personally, I am willing to wait until the creator is back and running and ready to do more chapters. What grinds my gears is that there are people out there who cares only about the manga rather the creator. They get impatient and then they demand more chapters even though the creator is still recuperating. Manga creators are people as well and they deserve breaks. I would rather have a series on a hiatus and have a healthy creator instead of one that is in pain and giving us weekly chapters.

That’s the end of that. I hope you enjoyed my rants XD

Friday Funny 234: Marvel vs DC – Who was the king and who was the fool?

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome everyone another exciting day of Friday Funny. I hope everyone is staying warm in this fall month. We’re not in summer anymore, so put away the beach towels and cover up the swimming pool. I hope everyone had a good week and are ready for the weekend. Before we begin, let’s talk about what’s new and what to expect this weekend. Toonami just aired the last episode of the English Dub of Dragon Ball Super. The next anime joining Toonami is the second season of One-Punch Man and the anime premiere of Demon Slayer. Today is also the movie release of the classic cartoon The Addams Family. If you’re going to the movies to see Joker, be careful out there and avoid any suspicious people and take kids to see this rated R movie. As we are here in the last quarter of the year, let’s look back in the Marvel and DC comic book movies of this year. Marvel has been unleashing movies from Disney, Fox and Sony. Starting the year, we had the powerful superhero Captain Marvel. This movie shows her origin and how powerful she is across the galaxy. We had the huge cinematic crossover movie and epic conclusion to the Avengers, We had Avengers: Endgame where the Avengers must team up for one more battle and take down Thanos and undo his deeds and bring order to the galaxy. With Sony involved with Disney, we got a follow up story taking place after Endgame focusing on the young webslinger Spider-Man. In Spider-Man: Far From Home, Spider-Man learns the struggles of being a superhero and how tough it is be like Iron Man when he has to face off against some elemental villains. He also learns not everyone can be Iron Man after his encounter with Mysterio. In the Marvel Fox movies, we have Dark Phoenix. In Dark Phoenix, watch how the X-Men must face off against their deadliest foe, their own X-Men friend Jean Grey. DC may have two films this year, but they been enjoyable by fans. If Marvel’s Captain Marvel wasn’t good, how about DC’s version of Captain Marvel, Shazam. In Shazam! watch how a young kid inherits magical powers bestowed by a wizard and how great power comes great responsibility. Last but not least, we Joker. Taking place in a fictional but realistic world of Gotham, watch as one man loses his mind after feeling outcasted and oppressed by society. Joker shows us that life is a joke and you might as well make it a show. What movies did you enjoy the most and what was your least favorite?

ICYMI: Judge dismisses Vic Migogna trial. Vic tells fans to stay positive.

What started in late January and after the success of Dragon Ball Super: Broly, it looks like the battle is over, but the war is not over.

If you are not aware of the Vic Migogna debacle, there was controversy of the voice actor of getting accused of harassing his fans and coworkers. These voice actors who accused him was his coworkers from Funimation such as Monica Rial and her fiancee Ron Toye and her friend Jamie Marchi. Despite not having any credible evidence, Vic got fired from Funimation and he lost his role in the series RWBY. In results, Vic later sued them for defamation. This whole storm has divided the anime community and even revealed dark secrets within Funimation such as Chris Sabat and his “casting couch” auditions in which it is still a rumor. Chuck Huber even released a affidavit stating dark secrets about his coworkers and even how they treated Vic. There are also speculations that Chris Sabat even had a hand to firing former Funimation voice actor Stephanie Nadolny. Besides all this, the court is finally over and the results may be good and bad.

According to news site Bounding Into Comics, the judge assigned to this trial, Judge Chupp, dismissed Vic Migogna’s case. Monica Rial, Ron Toye and even Jamie Marchi are excused from this case and they won. Here is what Judge Chupp stated:

“The Court FINDS that Defendants have shown by a preponderance of the evidence that all causes of action against all Defendants asserted by Plaintiff Mignogna are based on, relate to, or are in response to the Defendant’s right to free speech, the right to petition, or the right to association under the TCPA.

Additionally, the Court FINDS that Defendants have shown by a preponderance of the evidence that the communications related to Plaintiffs causes of action relate to a public concern, and the communications involve allegations of conduct by Plaintiff that relate to health and safety, environmental, economic or community well-being.”

Despite Vic Mignogna losing he did wanted his fans to stay positive and help encourage others. Despite getting fired from Funimation, he was able to go anime conventions and even participate in a Dragon Ball FighterZ tournament. In a interview with Kasanova Podcast, he  mentions he is grateful and blessed.

“I am blessed. I am blessed beyond what I deserve. I’ve always felt such gratitude to do what I do. As I’ve told people many times in many interviews and panels over the years, I didn’t set out to become a voice actor. I didn’t expect that, I didn’t go knockin’ on production doors and sending out demos – you know, beatin’ the pavement. An opportunity arose and I took it, having no idea where it would lead, and here we are. And daily I have to pinch myself mentally to remind myself that even when things are rough, even when things may be tough or bad, or unfortunate, there is so much to be grateful for.”

He also makes a comment about the cancel culture and how there people who seek negative attention:

“There’s a lot of negativity in the world. Don’t let it suck you in. It’s easy. It’s quick. It’s cheap. You may get a quick rush but it does nothing but hurt. And I want to encourage everyone to be voices for good. To sow positivity and encouragement into people.

“There are so many people out there, so desperate just to be acknowledged. Just to feel like they matter to someone. And that desire to mean something is so strong that it literally drives some people to be negative, or to talk garbage, or to do negative things just to get attention. […]

“[…] Everyone single person, wherever they are, you can do enormous things to encourage and make people’s lives better all around you. So be that person. That would be my greatest wish and encouragement to the fans out there.

“And thank you. Thank you so much for your encouragement to me over the years. I’ve never imagined that things would happen that would happen over the years for me, and I’m extremely grateful, most of all for you, your support, and your encouragement over the years. So thank you.”
