After doing some research and finding this out from my blogger friend TwoHappyCats, I decided to try out Ko-Fi. From I understand from the website and from TwoHappyCats, Ko-Fi is a special website where people can set up a free page for YouTube, WordPress or any other activity you do show work and get paid. Almost and not like Patreon, people can support these people with a measly donation and you don’t have to worry about donating monthly like Patreon. This is called “Buy Me a Coffee” and by clicking on the button or link, you will be taken to a page where you can donate and show your support. The set up is free and you don’t need to pay. If you have Paypal, you can use your email and password from you account and use it for Ko-fi and you can donations to your Paypal. I haven’t explore much but I think you can also donate with other means.
Why did I create a Ko-fi page?
In the past, I said I wanted to get paid for my writing here in my blog. Eventually, I want to upgrade my blog and make it a personal website. For now, I am going to use Ko-fi as a stepping stone as way to experience what is like to earn money from writing. I feel like doing more for my blog and I want experience something new. Nothing is going to change here drastically so don’t worry. I am still going to blog about anime, video games, news, TGIF and the usual even if you don’t donate. Ko-fi will allow me to see who is supporting my blog and is willing to give me a cup of coffee. If you wish to donate, I will be happy to give you a shout out, or if you don’t want to be placed on the spotlight, your secret is safe.
I am also going to try and update my Ko-fi page to make it look appealing. If you saw it now, it looks bland but like any other coffee shop, I am going to add some cream and love.
Thank you for taking the time to read this news. Rather you buy me a coffee or not, I appreciate you reading my post. As always, I am still going to give you guys the best in my posts even if you don’t click the link. I love you guys!
Also thank you TwoHappyCats for giving me the idea from your blog and others who encouraged me try it out. Give her some coffee!
As we approach the end of 2016, we, as anime fans, must prepare for great things for 2017.
Attack on Titan
Revealed in the Japanese version of the Attack on Titan vol. 21 manga jacket, the long awaited second season of Attack on Titan will premiere on April 2017.
The second season was originally going to be released for 2016 but it got delayed for 2017.
Sword Art Online
Announced today, the upcoming film “Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale” will be premeired in the United States theaters on March 9, 2017. However, Aniplex of America will be hosting a special premeire at Hollywood, California on March 1, 2017.
If you haven’t heard in social media, I got great news for you.
According to FUNimation, they have confirmed that they obtained the license to the anime film “The Disappearance to Haruhi Suzumiya”. This anime will be sold on DVD and Blu-Ray somewhere in 2017. The film is based on the fourth volume of the light novel and the time length is 163 minutes. Here is the plot:
In the story, it is mid-December, and SOS Brigade chief Haruhi Suzumiya announces that the Brigade is going to hold a Christmas party in their clubroom. The brigade members Kyon, Yuki Nagato, Mikuru Asahina and Itsuki Koizumi start preparing for the party, but a couple of days later, Kyon arrives at school to find that Haruhi is missing. Not only that, but Mikuru claims she has never known Kyon before, Koizumi is also missing, and Yuki has become the sole member of the literature club…
The anime film was recently owned by Bandai Entertainment and was sold in DVD and Blu-Ray format in 2011.
Also in old news if you have been under a rock, FUNimation also obtained the rights to the entire Haruhi Suzumiya anime!
Cue the music
TGIF! Thank God it’s Friday! It’s Friday everybody and we are in the middle of February! Valentines is over and so is President’s Day. As far I know, there is no more holidays in February and even though we are in winter, the weather is starting to feel like spring in California. Ever since the Marvel movie Deadpool was released in theaters last week, it made over $135 million on the box office and defeating last year’s record which was Fifty Shades of Grey and it earned $85.2. Tomorrow on Toonami, Akame ga Kill! will be entering its final episode and replacing the anime will be the new upcoming Dimension W.
Now that I took care of the news, this post is dedication to the newly released game Street Fighter V. The series is back with returning and new characters and I believe that Capcom actually did something correct. The DLC will be free and to unlock characters, you need to fight and earn “in-game” money. Now with that finished, it’s time to begin!
To end this post, I will do a top 5 on moments where Guiles’ theme goes with everything. Guile’s theme originated from Street Fighter II and his theme has been quite popular and is often used in YouTube videos. Some make moments epic while it also makes them silly. Anyway, here some music to pump you up (no particular order).
Go home and be a family man (or woman) 🙂
Remember the huge project announcement of Gurren Lagann in December 21?
The project is finally announced and it’s NOT an anime or movie such sort. It is actually new sets of pachinko machines for Japan. Each one has a design of the “Gurren Lagann” and “Lazengann” . These will be available in Japan along with the other pachinko machines in February.
