Lights, Camera, Action! Anime gets live-action adaptations?

With every popular anime, there is someone out there plotting to make a live action movie adaptation. Not one, but two popular series might be on the horizon on getting a live-action adaptation. Last week, movie company announced that they want to do a live-action movie based on Kohei Horikoshi’s Shonen Jump manga My Hero Academia. There’s not much information yet, but it is mentioned that Alex Garcia (Spanish Actor) and Pacific Rim: Uprising writer and producer Jay Ashenfelter will be involved with the project and Ryosuke Yoritomi will be the producer representing the movie in Japan.

Besides My Hero Academia, Attack on Titan will be getting the same treatment as well. Announced yesterday, Warner Bros wants to do a live-action movie of Hajime Isayama’s manga Attack on Titan. It’s confirmed that the director involved with this Hollywood movie will be Andy Muschietti who previously directed the the 2017 horror movie IT.

Wonder Woman sequel movie delayed!

Get ready for movie delays for this well-known superhero movie. Just like Fox-Marvel is doing with the Dark Phoenix and the Gambit movie, DC comics and Warner Bros have decided to delay a movie of their own. The upcoming movie Wonder Woman 1984 will be pushed back to June 5th, 2020. Originally, the movie was going to be released on November 1st, 2019, but Warner Bros and Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot believe it will be more successful if it was a summer movie. Wonder Woman 1984 is the sequel to hit successful movie Wonder Woman from 2017 and this movie will take place in the Cold War.

Friday Funny 51: 90s!

TGIF! Thank God it’s Friday! Good morning everyone! Today is another TGIF episode and I can’t wait to start. Recently this week I went back to school again for the spring. Hopefully if everything goes well, I shall be done. That also means I might be busier than usual since I am taking a lot of classes. Still, I will do my best to continue blogging :).

Tomorrow at Toonami, the last episode of the anime Parasyte will be shown and replacing that will be Hunter x Hunter. Well since I did not have anything pictures for this occasion I decided to mix it up for this TGIF post. If any 90s kid recognize the title “All That!”, you were born in the 90s like me. I decided to share pictures and memes from old cartoons. Those were the best times. Back then before cell phones and apps, we had toys and vhs. Some of these may not be 90s but their are some pictures that may trigger some nostalgia. Remember you would watch Toonami after school and watch action packed anime like DBZ, YuYu Hakusho, Sailor Moon and Rurouni Kenshin? Pepperidge Farm remembers.  Sit back and relax and enjoy the ride!

WARNING: Thus may contain nostalgia!

Tom Warburton, creator of Codename: KND, drew this because he really likes One Piece. You can read about it in his blog. It’s from September 2011 issue of Shonen Jump.

 For more cartoon classics, here is a playlist of songs I collected from YouTube. These are classic songs from Cartoons from Disney, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, Warner Bros, and more!

As a way to conclude this post, here is a goodbye song from my childhood “Bear in the Big Blue House”.

Goodbye :)!
