Doof's Tale

The true Season 3 finale of Phineas and Ferb is apparently an episode named "Your Backstory" in which Norm is the host of some kind of reality show featuring the life of the wishfully evil Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz.  It is currently set to air on November 2nd on Disney Channel.

Well, so much for the transition from Season 3 to Season 4.  Just as we should have expected, Season 3 is still not over yet.

My Little Comics

 So all My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fans, including bronies, have probably already heard by now that a series of comics based on the series is set for release beginning in late November.  They are being brought forth by Katie Cook and IDW Publishing while Andy Price does the artwork.  There are a couple of things to note, however.  First and foremost, the demographic is now intentionally steered towards all ages, kind of like Phineas and Ferb in a way, so it is not directed towards young girls as consumers.  Bronies, rejoice.  Secondly, according to an interview with Katie Cook, the comic series is set to take place after the events of Season 2 while at the same time not getting mixed up with what has already been planned for Season 3.  This is at most interesting, that is to see how IDW is gonna worm around Hasbro's plans for the television series.  But I still have to wonder if Hasbro and Jayson Thiessen are gonna change the demographic of the TV series for Season 3.  I'd say caution is still to be taken because little kids could still watch the show at anytime, especially if season episodes get mixed in.  So for that, why change the demographic for the show at all?

Hopefully, any older male who picks up a few of these doesn't have to be considered a brony.  Nah, for the record, bronies only do crazy stuff like porn art.  So if I were to stupidly get my hands on a comic or two, I'm still not a brony.

Zexal 2?

It seems that Pokémon Black and White aren't the only things getting a sequel for the first time.  Now the Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL anime series is getting something that isn't just a second season, it's a sequel series, Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL II!  For the record, this must be the first television series I've ever heard of to have a direct sequel to it with the number two and everything, lest I should count Digimon Adventure 02.  This brand new series is set to air in Japan next month, so I guess this coming October, we're gonna expect quite a few good things.  So goes the classic saying "Good things come to those who wait."  But to be honest, I don't usually wait these things out.  They just happen to come by as I live my life.

...I still want Pokémon Black...

Oh, the Hilarity!

YouTube user MrPoniator has created some hilarious fan-made animation of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.  Most of them have audio imports from the episodes aired so far.  This video that I'm presenting gives us a little message that Season 3 of the series can't come soon enough, even if rumor has it that it will air in about a month.

A Canterlot Wedding: Aftermath

Who's up for a little fan fiction of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, written by my old colleague Black Kyurem?  As you might have guessed, it was written in light of how badly Season 2 of the series had to go out and even though the story makes it seem like amends are made, in actuality I think nothing can undo the damage that has been done to the series.  But hey, the creative minds wanna do things their way, which is fine by me.  So here we are.

Darth Maul Returns

Yeah, yeah...  Everyone knows by now that the once ominous Sith apprentice from Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace has returned alive for Star Wars: The Clone Wars and appeared in the Season 4 finale.  A hint was dropped in Season 3, of course.  So of course he's set to return with his beastly brother, Savage Opress, in the upcoming Season 5, which may be the last season of the epic series... or not, we don't know.

But yeah, Season 5 looks promising.  And if there's one thing this series shows us, it's that characters you think are put down just keep getting back up for more.  Darth Maul is no exception.  But who could be next?  We'll see what terrors are in store for Star Wars fans when the new season airs later this month.

Chasing Signs

Looks like Equestria Daily has gathered some info on the upcoming Season 3 of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.  As expected, Princess Cadance, now Twilight's sister-in-law, returns, taking on the same appearance as promoted in the toy merchandising, but what's this?  So have Twilight and her friends!  Looks like they're getting prepped up for the so-called Crystal Faire.  A discovered DVD with an anticipated release date of December 4th reveals two new episode titles - "The Crystal Empire", Parts 1 and 2.  According to sources, this Crystal Empire just simply appeared in the far north of Equestria and it's up to the six main characters summoned by Princess Celestia (boo) to keep it safe.  Apparently, the only thing that can is this Crystal Heart, which I suspect looks identical to Cadance's cutie mark.  It's either that or Cadance is the Crystal Heart in the same sense that the Matoran are the heart of the city Metru Nui from BIONICLE 2: Legends of Metru Nui.  Now what kind of evil force could be at work that threatens the Crystal Empire?  Is it the mysterious dark character whose head shot was revealed on the web site?  Or is it Discord, who has the potent to make a terrifying return to the series, much to the delight of John de Lancie and his wonderful Discord-voicing talent?  Since the DVD is set for release on December 4th, that means Season 3 is likely to start at either around that time or much later.  Well the latter doesn't seem entirely plausible because why release DVD episodes before they air on television?  I mean, it's... uncommon, right?  Whatever, screw this whole thing.  I'm obviously not interested.  I'll do the critiques on the new episodes either way, but unless the series gets better, I'm wasting my time chasing signs of any improvement.

Envisioning a Perspective

Check it out.  Ever since Ferb and Isabella pairing fans started since the "Quantum Boogaloo" episode of Phineas and Ferb, it made for some serious competition, even more so what with Phineas being seemingly oblivious to Isabella's affections for him.  Now this screenshot is more than likely to raise hopes for any stragglers out there who still support Isabella ending up with the British stepbrother.  Now I'm gonna guess that this was thrown in as a twist or there's a good enough reason for this.  But whatever it is, I'm not about to lean towards any support one way or another.  That would be acting too hasty.

EDIT:  Yep, good thing I didn't jump to conclusions.  Apparently, Isabella wasn't looking and grabbed the wrong hand.  Hee, hee...

So, yeah...  It was a joke.
