Welcome to the blog post thing I like to call News Blurb which I talked about in this post. For those that want to know what it without clicking it (and for that you are lazy), News Blurbs are post that have short pieces of news that I feel are too short to even worry about typing. Part of it is because I’m lazy but the other part is that I can redirect you to links that will more than likely handle it better than me. News Blurbs post only come out on Fridays around this time unless said other wise and they will be in the categories Anime/Manga, Comics, Movies/TV, Tech, and Video Games. With that out of the way, here we go.
