Escape to the Great World of Anime!

You might be wondering the title and the purpose of this post, there’s a funny story behind this. I am good friends with my anime and colleague friend Allie from Visionaries and we whenever we text each other, we have a really long conversation on anything. Whether it is anime, cartoons and just life, we can go on for hours; however, one day, we had an interesting topic in which also inspired me to write this post. As usual we were talking about anime and how much it would be cool to leave reality and jump into our favorite anime. He texted me this comment but she called it a “rant”:

Go on some sort of adventure become our own heroes. Live in a world where we can be us and that’s good enough. Where words only positivity and people look on the bright side instead of dwelling on the negative. To face their problems instead of keeping them bottles up until they explode :). Oh the naive mind is back to reality now.

This got me thinking, if it’s possible to leave reality for a day and enter any world in the anime I seen is, I would do it. Some people might agree with me in this comment especially if you like anime. Most of us had this deep wish where we can have the ability to go our favorite anime. After hearing her say this, I added my own comment to hers and I told her why I want do it if I could jump into anime:

I would love to visit that world. Take me to Sword Art Online and let me go on quests or Yu-Gi-Oh! and let me duel with my monsters. Take me to a world where my average “me” can be greater. 😀

This may sound silly the way I said it but wouldn’t it be awesome? Imagine leaving your average or boring life for a day, months or whatever time you desire and escape to somewhere where you are the hero or at least feel important. Basically, what I am saying is this: if there was a way to enter a world where you leave your dull life and enter a new world where you can live your favorite anime world or worlds, would you do it?

Personally, I would. In my daily life, I usually live just an average routine where I watch anime or just do my daily chores. Whenever I see anime characters in action or doing something exciting, I get envious. Like a kid who wants to be their favorite superhero, I like to dream and wanting to be something great like my favorite characters. If I can jump into worlds of anime, I would be hero in Dragon Ball Z, travel  and enjoy solitude in Sword Art Online, or even obtain some powerful beings in Yu-Gi-Oh!.

The anime world is more bizarre than JoJo’s Bizarre Aventure but that’s okay, it just means the norm is the oddities itself like the anime Durarara!! Can it be dangerous? Yes! Will you survive? Of course if you have the right skills and ideal anime.

If somehow or someone came to you and asked if you could jump into any anime world you desire, where would you go?

If there was a rabbit hole like Alice in Wonderland where anime logic exist and all reality doesn’t, would you dig deeper?

Or better yet, if there was a door and it says “door way to anime”, would you open that door and not look back?

What would you do and where do you want to go?

Based on the trailer, the animation and team who worked on anime like One-Punch Man and Tokyo Ghoul will be part of creating this anime. Here is the synopsis of the anime:

Enter the world of INDIGO IGNITED, a post-apocalyptic dark fantasy anime. A shattered world sustained by bloodshed and built upon the remnants of an ancient order that was abolished in their conquest to rid the world of Fear.

Friday Funny 108: Happy Mother Goku Piccolo Day!

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Hey everyone, welcome back to another exciting episode of TGIF Friday Funny. I am back and once again to provide funny memes for your day. Last weekend was pretty busy with my family and hopefully this weekend will be less busy. If you noticed already, there has been less content this week. Excuse me for the lack of posts because I have been busy as well as not being able to find any tasty news or I am in the middle of trying to create a review. I am planning to do a special blog project post but in regards to a video game. I haven’t seen Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 but I did see Passengers and it was good. This and last week had special days because each referred to nerd moments and anime character’s special days. Here is what happened so far:

May the 4th be with you: Star Wars Day (May 4th)

Gon Freecss(Hunter x Hunter): Birthday May 5th*

Monkey D. Luffy (One Piece): Birthday May 5th*

Goku Day and Piccolo Day (Dragon Ball): In Goku Day, Japan takes the time to recognize the strongest and powerful character in Dragon Ball, Son Goku. In the anime of Dragon Ball, King Piccolo declares May 9th as Piccolo Day after taking over the world.

*It was also Children’s Day in Japan

In this weekend, we have Mother’s Day. Go out and spend time with your mothers out there. Do their chores, cook for them or whatever makes your mommy happy.

Now, let’s the Friday!

To end this post, here is some funny abridged series moments of Goku and Piccolo:

This is not TFS, but this funny. Driving!

Bye guys!

TGIF Friday Funny Episode 79: October 21

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Today is Friday and I hope everyone is having a great morning or afternoon. I have some important news to share for gamers and online fans! This is not one of the news, but just as a reminder, I got a job at Amazon last week on Wednesday (10/12). This means I will be really busy but I will still be here to respond to Tweets and WP comments.

You might be wondering what’s the deal with the title. I got this title from the classic movie “Back to the Future: Part II“. Saturday is Back to the Future Day and the reason why it is a big deal is because in the movie, the characters Marty McFly and Doc Brown time travel to the future of 2015 in California. Last year, people tweeted and talked about Back to the Future.

Now onward to the news! Saturday is the online web-series premiere of volume 4, RWBY. The anime series returns and all your favorite characters return after the dramatic events of volume 3. Ruby and her friends are back to kill the Grimm and restore the world from a evil. Most fans remember going through the suffering in volume 3, but now with volume 4, fans are anxiously ready for more adventures. Remember to stay tune to the first episode on October 22.

In the next and final news, October 25 is the official release of the video game Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. In this sequel, fans can relieve the Dragon Ball moments and fight to save the future by helping the heroes in the past. The new game will include new characters like villains from the movies and Dragon Ball Super characters, like Goku Black. Even more players will be able to work together in missions and tackle enemies. Based on people’s gameplay, if you have the save file to the first game, your information will be transferred to this game.

Final, final news is that I reached 500 posts on October 17!

TGIF! Thank God it’s Friday! Today is Friday and today is also the last day of Friday of April. In this episode of  these TGIF posts, today is the movie adaptation of the popular PS2 video game Ratchet and Clank. The first Ratchet and Clank game was released in 2002 for the PS2.
