TGIF Friday Funny 114: The Last Laugh

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome back to another exciting episode of TGIF Friday Funny! In this episode. I am here to inform you that the movie Transformers: The Last Knight is out in the theaters and it is the last film of Michael Bay’s movie series. Can you believe that the first film came out in 2007 and it had stars such as Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox? Now we in 2017 and we made it to the fifth film. I think this is last of the series but I heard that Michael Bay will probably do a spinoff series of one of the characters in the future; if the rumors are true, get ready for more Transformers.

In other news, if you didn’t know or you are watching Toonami, Attack on Titan’s last episode on Season 2 revealed that they are going to do a Season 3 in 2018! Let’s hope this anime doesn’t take years for a Season 3 with delays. Does this mean we will reach the end of Attack on Titan? Also, in gaming news, get ready for next week for some new video games and DLC. In video games, get ready for Crash N. Sane Trilogy, a return of the classic marsupial and three games in one reboot collection for PS4. The games will include three games, time trial for all games in which you can race against the time and share to your friends and even play as Crash’s sister Coco in the past games. Also coming is the DLC for Final Fantasy XV, Episode Prompto. Without going into details, this Episode will allow players to play as the blond hair shooter and friend of Noctis friend Prompto and learn about his past and play a game style different than Noctis and Gladiolus. The DLC come out on June 27 and Crash is on June 30th!

In personal news, I finally finished reading Rosario + Vampire Season II! I have completed the series and I might go back read the entire series for a manga review. I am also rereading the manga series Black Clover from the beginning. I got these books from Barnes and Noble in a Buy 2 and Get 1 Free Viz Manga sale; the sale ends on July 5th.

Let’s start this Friday with explosions:

To end this post, here are some trailers! (Don’t watch Episode Prompto if you never played the story of Final Fantasy XV! )

Have an awesome day and weekend!

Ephesians 4: 14-16 (NKJV)

14 Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves,and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming.

15 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.

16 From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.

Friday Funny 110: Captain of Memorial Day

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome to another exciting episode of TGIF Friday Funny! This weekend is a three day weekend for some because Monday is Memorial Day in which we pay our respects for the veterans and soldiers who gave their lives to war and protection. While some may have to work in the weekends, others have days off; some are even graduating in schools and I would like to say congratulations to all the students. You guys made it this far and it’s up to you know which path do you want to take in life.

In other news, today is the movie (and fifth film) release of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tells No Tales. This movie will have your fan favorite characters like Jack Sparrow, Will Turner and much more as they deal with some undead pirates seeking vengeance and try to find a sacred and powerful item called the Trident of Poseidon, an object that allows the user to control the seas. If pirates is not your interest, I got other news if you like samurais; Toonami on Saturday will be doing a Samurai Jack season 5 marathon and encore of the last episode if you missed out or want experience the moments again. I also did a spoiler-free review of the cartoon season if you want to know my thoughts and see if it’s worth watching.

Last but not least, feel free to check out the OWLS recent posts. In this week, check out posts from Lita, Rai, Arria and Takuto as we tackle on the topic of Strength and how do we conquer our weaknesses. Also, please support OWLS blogger Becknaja as she also writes for MANGA.TOKYO, a site dedicated for fans who have an interest in Japanese media; she wrote a review for the BL manga series Ten Count.

Anyway, let’s end this May!

Here is some booty I found for this post

When in doubt, if you can’t watch the new movie, watch this classic cartoon!

See you later in Davy Jone’s Locker!

Samurai Jack season 5 full cartoon review

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)

Sunshine Blogger Award

I want to thank ignite18 of Marvelously Mismatched for nominating me for the Sunshine Blogger Award. I must be really popular if I keep getting awards. To bad I can never find time to do all these in one day. Anyway, you know the drill.

Rules

– Thank the person who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.
– Answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you.
– Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write then 11 new questions.
– List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.

Questions

1. How do you motivate yourself to keep the blog up and running?

I try to set goals for myself. One of these goals is to think about my readers and keep them entertained. If not for my readers, I like to open up my thoughts here in my site.

2. If you could live in a book, TV show or movie, what would it be?’

I would pick TV show for my choice. I would choose Samurai Jack because it would be awesome to work together with Jack and I would like to help him get back to his home.

3. What was your dream job growing up?

This is a tricky one because my dream job growing kept changing. First, I wanted to be a computer programmer and then after going through a lot in college, I want to be either a reviewer or journalist.

4. What’s one thing you think an anime should never do?

I guess it would be not going ahead of the manga in certain titles. For example, I heard Fullmetal Alchemist followed the manga for a bit but then it left and made its own story. Another example would be Rurouni Kenshin, we never got the Jinchu Arc and we ended up having tons of filler.

5. If you could time travel would you go to the future or the past?

I would go back to the past. I would want to avoid making mistakes of my life.

6. What fad do you wish would come back? Which do you feel should stay gone forever?

If I could bring back a fad, I would bring back Gangnam Style. The one fad I feel like should go is dubstep. It was okay for a while but I never like the music and I don’t understand how can people enjoy it.

7. If you could bring any fictional character to life, who would it be and why?

I would pick Noctis Lucis Caelum from Final Fantasy XV. It would be cool to play video games and be lazy all day. We could hide from our responsibilities and do nothing all day.

8. Would you rather explore a new planet or the deepest part of the ocean? Why?

I would pick the deepest part of the ocean; I seen the movie Interstellar and I don’t want to spend light years away from home!

9. How would you survive a zombie apocalypse?

If an apocalypse occurred, I would grab my sword I keep away and stock up on junk food. If that fails, I going to Sam’s Club and making it my home.

10. Favourite chip flavour?

I like Hot Cheetos with the lemon flavors. I like eating hot and sour chips.

11. If you could have the answer to any question what would your question be?

I guess my question would be this: If a tree falls down in the forest and no one is there, does it make a sound?

OWLS Blog Tour: Rosario + Vampire – Colorful Love

“Colors”

“Colors” refers to people of color in anime. For this monthly topic, we will be discussing how people of color or characters of different “races” (a literal alien race) are represented in anime. Some topics we considering is the dangers of stereotyping, bi-racial characters, and the importance of racial inclusion.

In this topic, I will be talking about the importance of color in the real world and in the anime world and manga world of Akihisa Ikeda‘s series Rosario + Vampire. (I will be mostly using the manga instead)

(Might have spoilers of the series but are very minor, it cover mostly volumes 1 and 10 from the season 1 manga.) Continue reading

My birthday gifts

Here is another short post.

Besides the stuff I bought from Little Tokyo, I got some gifts from my  family and I want to share some pictures for you guys on what I got for my birthday.

My younger brother got me a Marvel t-shirt, my sister and her husband got me two Pokemon shirts and my parents got me a Mortal Kombat shirt. They also got me the Final Fantasy XV – Piano Collection.

I also got some money from my grandparents. I used some gift money and purchased some Kingdom Hearts goods from Hot Topic: a lanyard and an exclusive Donald Duck Pop Funko figure.

My mom, who works in Scentsy, also got me a new burner and the burner is designed to look like stacked stones. I have  a habit of stacking stones whenever I go to the beach and my mom got me this candle. Scentsy is a company that sells lamps that burns and create fresh scents from burning wax, scented candles to be exact. It looks like this:

Whenever I try to stack stones, I feel like Smoker from One Piece.

I also got to download the dlc to Final Fantasy XV, Episode Gladiolus. I still need to finish the story, but I did play Chapter 13, verse 2 with Gladio. Gladio is a strong fighter and I enjoyed seeing his story.

To end this post, I will let Donald and Kirito say good bye.

Kirito: Good bye everyone. Thanks for the love for Matthew.

Donald: Bye! Bye! Come back real soon. You made Matt  a very happy boy.

Thank you guys for the nice comments and messages. God bless you all.

Taking place after facing Ravus, Gladiolus leaves the party and tries to obtain new skills. With the help of Cor, Gladio will be fighting daemons and he will have to face the ultimate challenger, Gilgamesh. If players bought the season pass, this episode is free; otherwise, you will have to pay $5.

Also coming out today is the release of of the HD collection game Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX, (in the UK, this game comes out on March 31st).
