Will We Get the ZEXAL Power?

It's hard to say, really. As many of you users may know, 4kids is facing issues with its Yu-Gi-Oh! anime licensing, but instead of getting handed a direct termination, it's been put on hold for the longest time. So this final turnout ought to be interesting. Will 4kids succeed and reprise their Yu-Gi-Oh! anime dubbing in the same manner as the previous three? Or will another existing dubbing company such as Studiopolis take over instead? You know, it could be bad enough that 4kids made the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's series finale end much earlier than the original Japanese version, that is, the English dub came to an end after Aporia's defeat in the WRGP finals and the whole Ark Cradle events were skipped out entirely. Kinda lame, but understandable, seeing as 4kids is still in hot water with their deals. But then again, the question still remains. Will they get the green light? Or will they stop forever at the red light?

Who's Number One Now?

Check it! Isn't this exciting?! It's finally happening! Phineas and Ferb is finally hitting ranks of No. 1 and in this case, it's now the top telecast among kids ages 6-11! You know what this means? It's means that Spongebob's reign of stupidity has finally come crashing down! The yellow sponge has been wrung out by the two stepbrothers who inspire kids of all ages to make summer vacation last! Even though for most of us, summer vacation is long over, the boys are still having fun with their summer and they encourage us to do the same! Spongebob and his Nickelodeon companions are getting the sting from jellyfish as the Danville crew and Disney rise to the top and take home the long-deserved crown!

Congratulations, Phineas and Ferb! And congratulations to Dan Povenmire and Jeff "Swampy" Marsh! Their efforts of getting the show on the air after sixteen years of attempts has more than paid off!

You Don't Meet a Girl Like That Every Dynasty

Phineas and Ferb Wiki stooges have done it again, with another episode claim, this time trying to use an international Disney XD channel as a cover-up. Here's the deal. The episode is entitled "Doof Dynasty" and it has been reported as mentioned on the German schedule for Disney XD beginning today. Don't these schnitzels have anything better to do with their lives besides fill the Phineas and Ferb Wiki up with this insensible nonsense? I mean... who cares if it's actually correct? Even if this episode actually exists, and I'm not falling for this trick so easily, the plot is preposterous and breaks the TV show standards. Leave the princess rescuing from evil forces to video game heroes such as Mario! Now there's a plumber with plenty of princess-rescuing experience for you! "Doof Dynasty"... Princess Isabella... Well, really! This is obviously a setup to get Phineas and Isabella shippers to build up false hope and be severely crushed in disappointment once again! Didn't the movie teach those shippers anything? Can't go falling for this stuff again, folks... At least, I won't. And not till there's undeniable proof that this is real, which I seriously doubt it is.

Interaction With Prerecorded Messages... Now There's Technology For You!

Thought I might as well have some fun with one of my favorite video game comedy bits from Dorkly. It's funny, but it's interesting to note that this scene is located in the level where the Maverick robot Chill Penguin resides, the area that is recommended to visit first because the player, X, obtains the Dash Boots at that location. Not to mention, the player has to interact with the prerecorded message from Dr. Light in this level, but it's worth getting the Dash Boots because they are extremely vital to the rest of the game, Mega Man X. Of course, this comedy bit pokes fun at this point in the game. I give props for good use of sprite animation.

Heh... why doesn't X just blast Chill Penguin while he's distracted with laughter?

Mega-Sick Jokes

Evidently, sad to say, there exist some young people who believe the tragedy of 9/11 was nothing more than a sick joke and in their warped and twisted minds, they have done terrible things to "celebrate" the occasion. I remember at my high school, sick twisted teenagers decided to poke fun at 9/11 by sounding off bomb scares left and right, costing us precious school days and education, several days after 9/11 first happened 10 years ago. And now today, there still exist some people who poke fun at 9/11, even 10 years later, and in eyes, they "celebrate" the occasion when our nation was under attack by terrorists. What's wrong with these people? Did they truly laugh as the twin towers came crumbling down that day? Did they feel no pity? Were they secretly juvenile? I don't know about you, but having these people around in the same districts where I've been at the time... it's pretty scary knowing that some bastard could one day think violence such as this terrible deed 10 years ago is cool and actually grow up to be a terrorist. Apparently, all these insolent kids want is just endless violence, and not just in the games that are created. Why don't they just frigging grow up already?

It's Been Ten Years Since...

Ten years ago today, our nation faced one of the worst terrorist attacks in history. The whole world changed that fateful day. And although personally, I felt neutral due to how fast it seemingly happened, I wish to pay my respects today as an American. This entry is my acknowledgement of the terrible events that transpired ten years ago. Still, it's hard to believe how these years pass so quickly, because I'm sure some of these events feel like only yesterday to some people.

Vandals Just Won't Leave Well Enough Alone

The Phineas and Ferb Wiki continues to be plagued by vandals creating scandals and false beliefs, hoping that there are stupid minds who will believe their sick jokes. Now they're trying to get smarter with screenshots, but still the good and smart admins are too clever for the twisted games. And yet, these criminals just never learn. Perhaps to them, it's not whether anyone believes them, but rather to make admins work extra hard and make fools out of them. Oh, the sick, twisted idiots! Sick, sick, sick! Pity that the infamous Fake Swampy Crisis was ultimately conspired by one of their own. After that, I wouldn't be surprised if users just couldn't be trusted. Vandals just never learn and they look for ways to make us believe garbage. Get a life, you twats!

The Importance of Voice Acting

Good day, folks. I wanna talk to y'all about voice acting, you know that acting when you're wearing headsets and unleash holy free speech into the microphone. Well, I wanna discuss something of vital importance, and that's matching the voice with the character, like a proper age for instance. Let's take Sakura from Cardcaptor Sakura for example. Her character starts out as a young 10-year-old girl and her Japanese voice actress nails the age perfectly. However, in the English dub, Sakura's English voice makes her sound like she's 14 instead of 10. Unless any dub information has stated otherwise, it's kind of flat-out wrong. And look, 4kids wasn't even responsible for that! Not when Nelvana was hired to do the dubbing voices. But the thing is, who cares if anime is toned down for kid audiences? We're talking realistic here! Well, in a certain sense, that is, but you get what I'm saying, right? You can make characters older in an English dub, but at least make the voices sound age appropriate, people. Can we do that? Good, good. At least the English dub of the second movie had it a little better. Sakura sounded more like a ten-year-old and her dub voice here is provided by Kari Wahlgren from Studiopolis, who voices Suzy from Phineas and Ferb.

Over and out.

Rumors and Consequences

The Phineas and Ferb Wiki has again revealed an episode title known as "Perry the Actorpus". And the current plot is that Phineas and Ferb's beloved pet platypus somehow wins a "spokesanimal" contest for Totally Tools, which would once again risk Perry's secret agent identity. Major Monogram responds by once again assigning Agent S, now known as Sergei the Snail, to be Dr. Doofenshmirtz's new nemesis, hopefully until the mess blows over. But this time, it is said that the good doctor will seriously underestimate his new opponent and after seeing him getting thwarted by a potted plant and a local zoo platypus, that would be no surprise. Unfortunately, the wiki doesn't seem to have any real solid proof so some mischief maker for all we know could once again be playing coy with us Phineas and Ferb fans, despite this one sounding like a reasonable episode within standards. But until there's evidence, there's no believing this, not just yet anyways.

So, it exists after all. Well, that's... good. Now, we wait for it to air.

Lady Luck

Titles that are like parodies, they always find a way to spoof on the originals. Take for example, this upcoming Phineas and Ferb episode "My Fair Goalie". Obviously, it's a play on the famous Broadway musical My Fair Lady and in a similar sense, Candace seems to be learning lessons on how to be a proper lady, much like how Eliza Doolittle from the musical had to learn pretty much the same thing albeit grammatically.

Interestingly enough, this girl who's teaching Candace, one of Ferb's cousins from England, is said to be named Eliza as well. Although, personally, I'm more interested in her striking resemblance to Frankie Foster from Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. What's that? Oh, the "goalie" part of the episode title? Oh, well that's because Ferb's cousins have come all the way from England to play soccer with Phineas and Ferb and their friends.
