Crunchyroll and Funimation

Crunchyroll and Funimation

Crunchyroll and Funimation become partners

Crunchyroll streams new and upcoming anime shows (with Subtitles), and Funimation is going to take those shows and dub them. Meaning if you only watch dubs newer anime will be easier accessible for you to watch in English dub. Instead of Crunchyroll trying to subtitle and dub anime, they can now focus on just producing dubs, since Crunchyroll will focus on the other aspect. The plan is to increase access to anime for a growing and dedicated fan base meaning as well that both companies will expand their anime lineup and provide more ways for anime fanatiks to stream, purchase, download, and access more of the anime they love.

Pokemon Generations

The series will cover stories from the first to the sixth generations, looking back at each generation in the popular game series. The series will cover events and characters from the games, meaning we will all get to know them better. Each region, yes from Kalos to Kanto will be visited and explored. We will get to relive old memories! We just got to watch ‘em all! Pokémon Company International released a trailer for Pokémon Generations on Tuesday.

Pokémon Company International also posted episode 1 of Pokémon Origins on their channel. Pokémon Origins (also known as Pocket Monsters: The Origin) is a 2013 anime series of 4 episodes that is an adaptation of the two first generation games Pokémon Red and Pokémon Green. It stars the character Red and his rival Blue who both set out on a journey from Professor Oak’s lab to complete the Pokédex.

Set to premiere on October 1, 2016, the anime Time Bokan 24 tells the tale of Tokio, a junior high student living in our present which is suddenly drafted as a member of the 24th century’s Space-Time Administration Bureau. He learns that history according to the textbook are lies, in fact, some of the interesting facts he learns are that the legendary beauty Cleopatra actually consists of a comic duo named Cleo and Patra and that the mythic Momotaro is actually more ogre-ish than the ogres. Tokio and his companion Calen will use the 24 Bokan Mecha, which can transform, to search out the True History of the world. Of course, that is if they can thwart the evil trio Akudama, who is hell-bent on reaching a goal of their own.

Brock’s Veggie Stew

In the Pokémon anime series Brock is not just a great Pokémon Breeder and Doctor, he is a great cook as well. If only our hero can be great in romance… We have seen countless Pokémon episodes where Brock (Known as Takeshi in Japan) cooked up delicious dishes for Pokémon and his friends alike. We have even seen Jesse and James try to rob Brock of his food. The man’s ninja skill as a cook is legend.

YouTuber Kat Musni decided to cook up a healthy yummy version of Brock’s veggie stew using cauliflower and almond milk, a perfect food to eat after a day’s hard work of playing Pokémon Go. For the Cauliflower broth base, you will need 2.5 cups chopped cauliflower, Garlic powder, sea salt, pepper to taste, 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil and 2 cups unsweetened almond milk (or milk of your choice). The roasted veggies you need for the recipe are 2 big carrots, sliced, 1/2 white onion, diced, 2 cups chopped broccoli, 4 baby bella mushrooms, sliced, garlic powder, sea salt, pepper to taste and more 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil. In the video, you will see how Kat Musni prepare this scrumptious feast. Itadakimasu minna!
