Do you recall the news about Rurouni Kenshin Hokkaido Arc returning on June 4th? According to recent news, the manga is out of hiatus and returned to the Shonen Jump magazine in Japan; however, this did happen in America. According to Viz, English company in charge of releasing the Weekly Shonen Jump manga and magazine in America, they did not include Rurouni Kenshin Hokkaido Arc and they extended the hiatus. If you were wondering why didn’t Kenshin return in your digital magazine, Viz did not allow the manga to return and extended the hiatus meanwhile in Japan, it is back.
If did not watch the recent Avengers movie “Avengers: Infinity War”, do not read this part of this news. The following will have spoilers from this point. I will not go into depth, but this will your last warning.
Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome everyone for another fun filled episode of Friday Funny! I bet I know why you are here today on this special episode. Today is the movie release of Deadpool 2! Marvel and Fox are bring back Deadpool once again in this violent and crude humor character on the big screen again. Taking place after the events of Deadpool 1, Deadpool returns and must face off against a cyborg named Cable is trying to capture a kid with mutant powers. Deadpool is not alone in this movie. He is going to form his own superhero team that is better than the X-Men and Avengers put together; the team is called X-Force. According to Screen Rant we have old and new characters joining the team such as returning characters Colossus and new recruits like Domino and the awesome average dude Peter! If you want more Marvel movies in your life and you want to take a break from Avengers: Infinity War, this is a movie made for you. Warning however, this is rated R! Here is also a spoilers: Deadpool is played by Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin is Cable and he is also Thanos! The first Deadpool movie was released in 2016 and it became a best selling superhero movie that surpassed all the X-Men movies and MCU films. This movie even defeated titles like Fifty Shades of Black. This was also the one of the few rated R movies made from Marvel. If Disney and Fox can settle the a plan with the Marvel movies, it could be possible to have Deadpool in Disney.
With all this talk, I should be laughing to these delicious memes!
According to an article from IGN, MCU/Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige announced that he has plans of introducing the super heroine Ms. Marvel. Her appearance will most likely appear after they release the 2019 movie Captain Marvel. If you don’t know who is Ms. Marvel, Ms. Marvel is a superhero character that first appeared in Captain Marvel #14 (August 2013) and she debuted in her own issue February 2014. Her identity is Kamala Khan and she is a Pakistan American citizen. She is Marvel’s first Muslim super hero and her comic has spread positive widespread. Her powers allows her to extend and morph her limbs.
Marvel may be able to make some great superhero movies, but the TV shows is something else. Unlike the well received show Agents of Shield, the recent MCU series Inhumans is getting some negative feedback. According to IGN, Channel ABC canceled the series Inhumans. With only eight episodes in total, the channel is pulling the plug.
Speaking of Agents of Shield, ABC will renew the series for the 6th season. The new season will have 13 episodes and it is hinted that it will reference the recent Marvel movie Avengers: Infinity War. It’s unknown when will it begin.
There was an idea, Stark knows this, called the Avengers Initiative. The idea was to bring together a group of remarkable people, see if they could become something more. See if they could work together when we needed them to to fight the battles we never could.

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome everyone for this Friday post. If you are reading this post right now, this will be the biggest moment in your life because today is the official movie release of the long anticipated superhero film Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War. This movie was in development for about 10 years since the first MCU film Iron Man in 2008. From 2008 Iron Man to 2018 Black Panther, this was the longest wait; especially Marvel/Disney had to get rights from companies such as Hulk belonging to Universal and Spider-Man from Sony. Marvel has brought all the superheros together and to face a major threat that holds the fate for humanity and the galaxy. The disbanded Avengers are back together, the young Spider-Man joins this galactic fight, Dr. Strange join forces, the recent king of Wakanda Black Panther must enlist his Wakanda soldiers to help fight the evil aliens and we have the ragtag Guardians of the Galaxy to help. The main villain Thanos is collecting 6 Infinity Stones for his Infinity Gauntlet. In trailers, he has two in his gauntlet. Thanos is not alone his world eradication because he has children team called the Black Order. This will be the greatest crossover ever and this is a fight that will decide the fate of the superheros. If I do see this movie, I will not be spoiling anything about this movie #ThanosDemandsYourSilence . Please respect the viewers and do not ruin this for anyone.
Besides this movie, this is the last Friday for April and as we get close to May, get ready for upcoming events. For the blogging team OWLS, we already have decided the next blog tour and I will be posting my post on May 1st and the medium I choose will not be an anime or cartoon. In the movies playing in theaters we have the upcoming Star Wars story, Solo: A Star Wars Story. This movie will talk about the iconic character Han Solo in his earlier youth and we get to see characters like Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian (he first appeared in The Empire Strikes Back). If Avengers wasn’t enough for you, we have the return of the lewd and rude antihero, Deadpool 2. Ryan Reynolds returns as the Merc with the Mouth and he must create a team and fight against a futuristic cyborg antagonist named Cable (the same actor is also doing Thanos) who is hunting a mutant child.
Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome back to another episode of Friday Funny! I hope everyone is doing great this week as week continue to go through this wacky weather in Spring. Lately over here, it either feels like Winter came back for revenge or Spring is just visiting. Before I begin, I got some news going on in the internet world. Today is the official release of Playstation’s popular series, God of War (or the internet calls the new game God of War 2018 or PS4). As someone who has a PS, I love this game and I do feel guilty for not finishing the entire series. I only completed God of War 1, 3 and Chains of Olympus on PSP. In this new game, the story takes place after the events of 3 where Kratos successfully killed off all the gods on Mount Olympus and killed the leader Zeus. Unlike the previous game where the story’s setting is based off from Greek Mythology, the new story is focused on Norse Mythology. I don’t know much about this genre of myth, but if you are familiar with Asgard, Valhalla, Odin or pretty much anything related to Thor from Marvel, get ready to experience this game. Also, unlike like the last game where you hack and slash enemies, you fight as if you have to actually plan your attacks. You’re not alone in this game, Kratos has a son named Atreus who helps you by shooting at enemies with bows and arrows and it’s up to Kratos to protect him and teach him the dangers of the world and the Norse gods. Overall, according to reviews this game is one of the best games for PS4 in story and gameplay. As a side note, it won’t have any micro transactions so that’s a win! (I am adding this game to my wishlist)
Besides that, we have one week until Avengers: Infinity War and things are about to get intense for the superheros as they fight Thanos and the Black Order. I hope you watched all the MCU films because once we start the movie, you better remember the characters and the location of the Infinity Stones.
With this said, let’s begin this Friday, you mortals!
Here are some interesting God of War videos I found interesting. The cause of Kratos’ hate towards Ares and the gods was the death of wife and daughter. As soon as they died, Olympus died. In this new story, Kratos and his son are faced against new challenges.
If you thought the news of the release date for the game Marvel’s Spider-Man was great, it is getting better!
According to the video game site DualShockers, Insomniac Games (creator of Ratchet and Clank, Spider-Man and formerly Spyro the Dragon) commented and revealed that the pre-order DLC for costumes will be in the game even if you can’t pre-order. Meaning, if you are unable to pre-order to get the suits like the Spider-Punk suit, you can still get it by playing the game. Yuri Lowenthal (voice actor of anime characters like Sasuke from Naruto) revealed that he will be voicing Spider-Man regardless to any suit.
The DLC story “The Story That Never Sleeps”; however, will be available as a DLC story individually. People who pre-order the game from Collector’s or Digital Deluxe will be able to play this three chapter story for free. To those who won’t buy the Collector’s Set or Digital Deluxe, you can simply pay for the DLC separate. Currently, there is no news for a season pass or price of the DLC story.
Looks like we’re getting new games for 2018 and unfortunately, Nintendo Switch will miss out.
Recently announced today through Twitter and IGN, Activision are bringing back another Playstation classic for PS4 and Xbox owners (includes PS4 Pro and X1X). Activision revealed the next trilogy game is called Spyro Reignited Trilogy. This collection will have all three classic Spryo games (Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage, Spyro 3: Year of the Dragon) and redone in enhanced graphics. This game will come out on Sept 21 2018. It’s unknown if this game will come out for Switch, but if it does, players will have to wait. As an added bonus, players who own Crash N. Sane Trilogy can see this trailer by applying a cheat code on the PS4 when playing Crash Warped in the main menu:
Revealed yesterday, Insomniac reveald the release date for the upcoming PS4 exclusive Marvel game Spider-Man. The game is set to be released for September 7th 2018.

For $150, you can get the collector’s edition which comes with the Spidey Pack, a statue, a DLC story chapter, artbook and the White Spider sticker.
Set to the all-new sonic backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2, Marvel Studios’ “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mystery of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to expand.
*Warning: this will have spoilers. This will be my first ever spoiler review and it will be about a Marvel film.
You probably seen this in hobby stores or game stores like GameStop, Box Lunch or even Hot Topic. They are called Pop figures and thanks to the company Funko, many characters from video games, cartoons, anime, comics and other pop culture genre have been converted to these bobble head like figures. Some actually are bobble heads while others just have a stiff head. Think of these as the bobble heads from sports like the NFL and NBA, but instead of collecting your favorite athletes, you’re collecting your favorite characters from Marvel, Dragon Ball, Batman or even Rugrats. I will be sharing you my collection and I will give you a brief description about how I got them.
If you think Tony Stark is a fictional character, you might be wrong because he did something unexpected today.
Revealed in a Twitter chat with Marvel, Robert Downy Jr (actor who plays as Tony Stark/Iron Man)had a fun-friendly chat with Marvel and ask if it’s possible to watch the upcoming Avengers movie “Avengers: Infinity War” earlier than expected. Surprisingly, they did! Rather than having the movie be released in theaters on May 4th, the movie will be on April 27th, a week earlier! Mark your calendars and cancel your plans!
According to Forbes, this is actually a good thing because this will give movies on May a chance to shine. On May, we have the sequel to Fox’s Marvel movie Deadpool 2 and a side story to the Star Wars Franchise, Solo: A Star Wars Story. Solo: A Star Wars Story is set to premier on theaters on May 25th. Deadpool 2 comes out on May 18th.
