Last month, we explored the meanings behind the terms, “feminine” and “feminism.” This month the OWLS bloggers will explore the concept of masculinity. We each have our own definition of what it means to be masculine and we will explore our definitions using “masculine” characters from various pop culture fandoms. We will discuss how these characters are “masculine” or show signs of a masculine persona. We will also share our personal stories about the amazing men that supported us in our lives as well as sharing some of our experiences growing up as a man or knowing men who struggled with the masculine identity.
Please check out OWLS blogger Crimson from Read at Night for her post on April 15th.
You thought Broly or Yhwach was going to join Jump Force? But it was me, Dio! But wait, Jotaro is here too!
It’s been revealed today that the anime fighting game Jump Force will be receiving two new characters to the roster. Already revealed, Jotaro Kujo is in Jump Force, but it’s been revealed that the antagonist of both Part 1 and 3, Dio Brando is also here to fight. Based on the screen shots, both characters will be using their Stands to fight. Jotaro stand is Star Platinum and its ability allows him to fight in high speed flurry punches and have high reflexes. Dio’s stand The World is almost similar to Star Platinum, but its power can stop time. Get ready to fight with the power of stands. It’s going to be a bizarre fight.

It has come to my attention that there is bad news in the anime community. An anime voice actor named Unsho Ishizuka passed away this Monday due to esophageal cancer. According to ANN, he was modern age 67, but in traditional Japanese age he is 68. Aoni Production, an agency that represents Japanese voice actors and entertainers, stated that Ishizuka was given medical treatment before his passing, but it all became ineffective. If you don’t know who he is well-known for, he did the Japanese voice dub for well-known characters in anime such as Joseph Joestar in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventures: Stardust Crusaders and Diamond is Unbreakable, Hercule in Dragon Ball Z and Super, Professor Oak in Pokemon and even the iconic fighter Heihachi in the Tekken video game series.
In recent news of ANN, Tokyo TV recently announced that there are some recorded audio compiled and ready for future Pokemon Sun and Moon episodes with Unsho Ishizuka already in it. These recorded episodes with him will be premiered on Japanese public TVs until late October. These are the last recorded audio of him.

Haruno Shiobana is actually Giorno Giovanna. Giorno goal is to rise up to the most powerful mafia called the Passione. Giorno is also the offspring of Dio Brando (an antagonist of the Joestar family), but he also carries the blood of the Joestar.
Published by Bandai Namco of Entertainment and developed by CyberConnect2 (they also worked on the Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm series), we get another JoJo Bizarre Adventure video game and unlike the previous game on the PS3 JoJo’s Bizarre Adventures: All-Star Battles, this game will not have players buy any DLCs. I got this game from a flash sale with a price of $15; the retail price is about $60. In the PSN store, this game title has the world bundle. That is because in the North America version, this digital game includes the game itself and all the DLC such as additional missions and Jotaro Kujo Part 4 version. In this review, this will contain spoiler but only minor. The spoilers will occur in the story and I will do my best to not give away too much details.
Not just one but two new anime are joining Toonami but these are very familiar if you seen them from the first season!
In July 29th, the anime JoJo Bizarre Adventure returns but it will be part 3 “Stardust Crusaders” joining the line up. The main character will be the 17-year old Jotaro Kujo along with the returning “JoJo” Joseph Joestar and they must fight an old enemy from the same ancestor, the vampire Dio Brando.
In October, the anime series Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans returns but with an English Dub of Season 2. The anime will be back in Toonami with JoJo Bizarre Adventures: Stardust Crusaders.
In addition to IBO joining Toonami, the anime company FUNimation confirmed at AX that they officially licensed the anime Iron-Blooded Orphans for both and they will release both sets later this year.
