Remember the fifth season of Samurai Jack where the cartoon got dark with elements like blood violence and suicide? Well, get ready to see some violence and action because Samurai Jack creator Genndy Tartakovsky is back and this time, he is making a cartoon Adult Swim fans. The cartoon is called Primal. It’s unknown if it’s going to be a movie special or TV series, but you can bet that Tartakovsky will be working on this project. If you don’t mind the violence, this may be for you. Primal will be on Adult Swim in the fall 2019.
Genndy Tartakovsky is an animator, director and producer in animation. He worked on cartoons like Samurai Jack, Dexter’s Laboratory and 2003 Star Wars: Clone Wars. He also directed the family movie trilogy Hotel Transylvania. He was this close to directing a Popeye movie, but Sony scrapped it and we ended up getting The Emoji Movie.

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.

Google Play Synopsis:
It’s been 50 years since we saw Samurai Jack and time has not been kind to him. Aku has destroyed every time portal and Jack has stopped aging, a side effect of time travel. It seems he is cursed to just roam the land for all eternity. His past haunts him as well as a cult of assassins dedicated to killing him for Aku’s glory. Samurai Jack is created, executive produced and directed by Genndy Tartakovsky.
(Might contain spoilers if you have not seen the previous seasons but I keep them from minimum to none)
Thank God it’s Friday! Hello everyone, this is Matthew of Matt-in-the-Hat and I welcome to my kingdom. Before I begin, let me make a personal announcement. I finally beat Final Fantasy XV! I don’t know when will I do a review but I will say this is the best game I have ever played. This was huge game to play but the adventure and story and characters were worth it. With this said here are some other news! If you are an aniblogger (a blogger who posts anime or manga related content) and you haven’t submitted a post to Arria’s 9th Fujinsei Blog Carnival, go do so before Sunday! Like I said in the past, in this blog carnival, anibloggers can submit and share one post about anime/manga to other bloggers and make friends. It has to be anime/manga related or you won’t be able to participate. If you want to be friends with the host, Arria Cross, be nice to her and she will be the best friend online. She likes One Piece and Yuri on Ice.
Be sure to check out the OWLS and read the current blog tour posts about disruptors. It’s the OWLS duties to teach people about self-respect by using our knowledge of anime/manga. The recent posts were done by me, Kat, Venus and Arria. There will be more up ahead.
If you are wondering about the title and wondering why is not something related to Friday the 13th, this is because tomorrow is the Cartoon Network return of the classic cartoon Samurai Jack. On Toonami, they will be bringing back the show by one episode each week from season 1 to the new and final season 5, at 8:30 PM E/T. Samurai Jack is a cartoon show about a samurai Jack who gets sent to the future by an evil wizard named Aku. Jack must defeat Aku and return home. The cartoon was first released in 2001 and left a huge cliffhanger on 2004. It’s been recently reported that the creator Genndy Tartakovsky will finally finish the cartoon in the new fifth season.
Also, from Jan 10-17 is the theatrical movie One Piece Film: Gold! Make sure you grab your tickets and catch the premiere!
