It’s Been Too Long

Ugh.

We came back with a force and put up some of our best post to date. I was energized and passionate. This is not a post saying I’ve lost the spark or the passion. Just the opposite, in fact. I find myself everyday thinking “I wish I could post something.” However, I go through a few thought processes a day.

The major thing that happened was dealing with the family. New dirt and old scars were brought up about crap I thought was long dead and gone. I say it all the time that this blog is kind of like a memory jar for me to go back and view after time has passed. Personally, something huge happened in my family recently that I think will be a complete non-issue in two years. That or my family will be pretty messed up in the long run. So in two years I may revisit this post and see how things are looking. Though, it did completely ruin me for about 3 days and has severally lowered my energy levels. Its one of the reasons I have not bothered streaming at all lately.

Secondly, is on top of that, Jessica’s cousins that we’ve been babysitting since Covid hit are getting worse. They are either getting burned out of Jessica and myself or they are really missing their dad. Either way, my energy levels have been drastically down and they’ve been more of handful recently. It means I just dont have the energy to put on a good stream, yet.

Well, later today Ill upload the Manga Haul #2. Then Ill upload my thoughts on Pokemon Snap getting new life and finally at some point this week, I’ll talk about my history as a collector. So stay tune.

For now, that is all. With any luck, these post will be funneling out through the week.

As always, thanks for reading!

Something of an Update

Typically when Im making a post like this there’s some kind of life update attached. But not today. I just like trying to update daily. I had a busy day and videos and a blog post just got pushed back. Today was suppose to be a Random Wednesday for some random anime. With all hope, that series will return next Wednesday. Here’s to hoping.

What do you have to look forward to? Here’s a section I’m thinking about adding to Sundays.

Some Wii U Pick Ups! Want to see the month of May video game picks up? You can start watching the series here! And June’s pick ups are looking even better. I’ve added 3 rare Wii U Games in the last 2 weeks. Be on the look out soon.

Manga Monday Review for Dragon Eye Volume #1. I just finished this Manga yesterday. It is pretty cool. Be sure to check out my review Monday. In the meantime, there’s plenty of other Manga Monday Reviews here on the blog.

Manga Haul #2. Your boy has been busy buying some Mangas. The next haul with be centered around the manga MAR. 5 or so of those bad boys coming down the pipeline.

Tower of God Anime Review Episode #3. I haven’t got to see this episode yet, but it will be out when I see it.

A new Top Five Fridays. This one centers Super Mario 64 levels. So if you want to read me rank Super Mario 64 levels stay tuned.

Well those are some of the relevant posts I’m working on. There’s always more ideas kicking around in my head but that’ll do it for now. I just put out Tower of God Episode #2 review. If you got some free time, go check it out.

As always, thank you guys so much for checking out today’s post.

 

 

Manga Monday Next Week!

So, as you guys know I recently shown off my Manga haul and did a Manga Monday. The goal was to make it a weekly event. The plan is still the same. However, it took me several sittings to finish Tokyo Ghoul, so I have not had a chance to start the review. I enjoyed the book but have some thoughts on it. I dont want to rush the review just to get it out.

I have a busy day ahead of myself starting around 3. So, if I dont have the review done by 3, it probably wont happen today. I also have to run to Walmart and get some other stuff done by 3, so no promises either way.

Thank you guys for understanding. If I do get the blog up, this post will either be put on private or deleted or something. If I dont, Tokyo Ghoul Volume 1 will be uploaded next Monday.

Manga Monday: Rave Master Review

Life Update (May 6th 2020)

I really like doing these life updates. I like going back and reading them and seeing where I was at in one point of my life. So today, I’m sitting in a tire shops waiting room getting 3 tires replaced. Jessica and I have began full time babysitting her cousins since their school is closed. (We get them Sunday afternoon and they go Friday night. And this has been going on for a month now). I just finished one of the weirdest semesters I’ve ever had. Not the hardest by any means, but certainly weird.

All my classes moved to online due to the Coronavirus. That really threw off the whole groove of the semester being entirely online.

Earlier in the year, my passion for blogging was on fire. I had what I consider to be some of my greatest post to date. However, I tried to channel all that energy into both the Dahubbz YouTube channel and the Dahubbz blog post (the site you’re reading on right now.). Well, the candle burned on both ends burns out twice as fast or something like that.

So I decided to focus on the channel. I started streaming twice a week and they were successful for a channel my size. We streamed custom mods for A Hat in Time. All our viewers really enjoy them. Right now, due to us watching the kids nearly everyday, we havent been able to stream much. We have plans to restart soon.

Of course, most of my readers on here are here for the manga/anime reviews and the Pokemon content. Well, I fully plan to bring those back in strides now that school is over and I can’t really stream and record as much as years past.

Tomorrow or so, I’ll post a blog about some of the options we have available. Jessica and I each picked up about 3 mangas last week.

I dont have a detailed list of blog post I’m planning. I’m just going to kind of post what comes to my mind. In the mean time, if you enjoy our content and want more regular updates, go check out the Dahubbz youtube page (if I remember, I’ll add links later because I’m on mobile at the moment.)

I’m just happy to make post again. I’m always looking for more creative outlets. Here’s to finishing 2020 strong.

Thanks for reading and have a great day!

Manga Car Ride! Make a recommendation!

This Saturday will mark my epic two week quest down to Panama City! That nets me close to ten hours of car trip reading time. I’m bringing Dragon Ball Vol. 7-8-9, Seven Deadly Sins Vol 2, Tokyo Ghoul Vol 1, and Food Wars Vol 1. to keep me entertained.

While I am down there, I will try to stop by book stores and comic stores and pick up some new ones.

So if you stumble across this post, you should totally leave the name of a manga or comic book I should be on the look out for.

You can also recommend an anime I’ll try to get around to watching it. Ideally, something found on Crunchyroll, Netflix, or Hulu.

You can follow me on twitter @Dahubbz to see if I find anything cool!

Thanks for reading!

Life Update: BatmanVsSuperman, moving

The drought is almost over.

My moving situation is basically solved and figured out as long nothing changes between now and the first week of April. I am so excited as this change of scenery is what the doctor ordered! I plan to finally have office space(If youll allow me to call it that) I plan to renew my subscriptions and buy some mangas. It’s going to be a fresh spark that I think will add energy back to the blog and create some momentum for the youtube channel.

That wont be until roughly April 5th. In the meantime I have a “Let’s Talk” session lined up for BatmanVsSuperman, as well as trying to read a manga Ive owned for like 4 months. God willing, I will start Random Wednesday next Wednesday, But I make no promises as it seems my time flies by here currently.

Thanks for reading this and sticking by. The ambiguous uncertainty has really taken a toll on me but I can see a light. Here’s to a bright future!

Life Update: New category, Youtube, and time away.

I fell in love with blogging almost a year ago. It was place to talk about anything: Mangas, School, games, you name it.

So why is it I havent made a post in nearly a month?

Multiple reasons.

  1. I’ve been sick and and unmotivated.

I had this cold back in February and it was not that bad. It keep me bed for long periods of time, because more than I was sick, I was just always tired. I don’t sleep right to begin with but I was always woke up before 11am. I can’t really say I have since I got this cold. Which makes being productive hard when I sleep for half the day.

2. School work out of nowhere.

If you follow my blog any you know in January I was doing a daily blog(If you didnt check it out than I highly recommend it) and was taking five classes and trying to start working. I was completely fine than. However, somewhere along the line my classes up’d the work out of nowhere and so many test, and written assignments, and discussions were due. I had to drop 2 classes just to even be able to balance all the things I was doing. It sucked.

3. Started a Youtube Channel

I’ve stated before Youtube was my first love. I started my first channel back in ’09 and slowly fell out of it. I went out and bought my first mic and editing software and fired up the dream once more. I started blogging back last summer. This Youtube channel has been in the works since the summer of 13. While the blog was a spur-of-the-moment thing and the youtube channel has been very calculated, I wanted to give equal attention. Sadly, I have not. The blog actually takes a lot of time and money(in some instances). Somewhere along the lines my time shrunk. This also goes hand in hand with motivation. Sometimes recording a youtube video is as easy as hitting record, playing the game, and just talking along with it. The blog, however, I either have to watch an entire anime, read a volume, or what have you, and than plan it out.

4. Decreasing Quality

Maybe the biggest reason. Watching anime, reading manga, playing the games, is not the the hard part. It’s the planning the post. I like to be insightful, unbiased, and salt in my own brand of off beat humor. I begun waiting to the last moment and just throwing together material and it got to the point of asking myself “Would I actually read this myself”. This has slowed me down greatly. Everything stems from being unmotivated. I get basically no hours at my job, my apartment is up for inspection later this month, I’m in this weird transition period between possibly transferring colleges and moving nearly 6 hours away, and everything kind of has me in a funk. One of the few things making me happy is making videos and my voice has been gone for the better half of a month so I cant even do that.

*Next topic*

As the title suggest, I am going to talk about youtube.

I am currently doing a Pokmeon Golden Age Let’s Play. I think it is going to finish up with 8 or 9 videos. I also do unboxings every Saturday. I’ve already opened two mew collection boxes and will be opening the Celebi box sometime this week! I also will be opening the dual box for Magic the Gathering and the latest structure deck of Yugioh. My top fives will eventually migrate over to the channel as well. I’m working on putting together a let’s play of Pokemon Gray Topaz and Zelda: Minish Cap. I’m debating on doing Dragon Ball Z Legacy of Goku 2 and Super Mario 64. Anime and Manga reviews may or may not move over to the channel(They may stay a blog exclusive)

Go Subscribe to Dahubbz on Youtube.

*Last Topic*

A new category. Crunchyroll has a random feature that will assign you a random episode to watch. I want to integrate this into the blog. I will watch episode one of a random anime that crunchyroll spits out at me and give my opinions on it and call this “Random Wednesday”. It’s just a test run but I’ll try it out either this Wednesday or the next so be on the look out!

Announcement: Youtube, Daily Blog, Mew Mythical Collection

Hey, guys. It’s time for another life update.

So you guys have probably noticed post have slowed down again. Daily Blog is officially being put on hold. Here is why:

In 2009, I started my very first youtube channel. I was 14. I made some good friends. My brother and I were best friends and bonded over making videos and playing games. I had not even started high school yet, and somehow, this was what I was wanting to do with my life. I commonly remember this time period as the second best time period of my life.

My sophomore year of high school I gave YouTube a second try. Me and my friend did improv/sketch comedy. We sent them to all our friends and we had a small following in our home town. Yet again, this was one of the best periods of my life(at the beginning anyway). My senior year, my friend and I could not see eye to eye with what to do with the channel, he eventually realized we should not change our style, but it was too late. I had already lost interest.

My junior year, I returned to my roots and began let’s playing again. It had no momentum this time and suddenly, I was having editing problems. The audio and video were out of sync. At first, I tried fixing and working around it. It become too tedious and, coupled with school, just got lost in mud.

In 2013 as a freshman in college, I decided I wanted to return to YouTube. Roughly three years later, I get a chance to return to the website I love.

When I first started out, videos did not have to be 1080, the market was not super over saturated with lets players, and half the people you know and love today either were not around or were not nearly as popular. It was simply a different time.

I’ve tried. I’ve lost passwords, interest, and patience. But I’m here this time to see it to the end. So come along with me.

Right now I am let’s playing Pokemon: Golden Age for some friends. You should check it. I already have two videos out and I’m hoping to upload frequently. Just search DaHubbz in your YouTube.

For what I am doing for today, I’m going to my local Gamestop. They should have 4 of the Mew Mythical Collection  tcg box. I’m strongly debating on buying all four. If I do, I might do a give away. If you want a more play-by-play and direct approach on this. Follow me on twitter to see what I decide over at Dahubbz.

Manga mondays and all that jazz are still on going so stay tuned for more reviews!

As always, thanks for reading this!

Update- Daily Blog Challenge, Finally an announcement

So if you follow this blog in any capacity, you know I do daily posts. You also probably know I havent been doing it regularly. I’ve talked about this once, and I’m still having trouble with it.

A. I’ve been sick all this week. It’s just a running nose, sore throat, and cough. With the occasional headache. I do not take medicine for anything that wont kill me, so I’m naturally fighting it with water and sleep. Which takes time.

Also, I had a three page paper due and a test. Albeit, these are not hard, but the study and prep time take time away from the blog.

I’m happy to say I shuld get a top five out today for favorite Majora’s Mask mask. So if that interest you, stay tune!
I’ve talked about it before, but I’ll mention it again because it is relevant. I started this blog with the hopes of creating a safe and healthy environment for lovers of anime/manga/video game/etc to come together, to meet and discuss interests. I’m proud to say I took the next step today. I made a forum.

Here we have topics like “Suggest a manga to everyone” or “What anime are you currently watchi
ng” I’m open to suggestion and I really want to turn this into a hangout spot for everyone.

When I was Freshman in High School, I took part in a forum that changed my life. It was pokemon forum and I made awesome friends. Unfortunately, those people(Myself included) all took a break from it and we failed to stay in touch. But that truly made my summer incredible. I was an introvert and did not have real good friends in school yet(that changed my junior year). But this was a big stepping stone into helping me grow out of some of those problems. I would love to give back to a community, the way a community gave to me.

Please do not hesitate to check it out, make suggestions, and tell your friends. Of course it is small now, but we can make it grow!

Thanks for taking the time to read this!

Check back later today for a top five, and next week for more big announcement

100th Post

Today were not doing  Daily Post Challenge. Instead, I’m making a simple post. This will be my 100th post on DaHubbz.

This channel is not huge in any sense of the word, however, the regulars that have flocked to my post have been truly great.

Some people comment.
Some people give likes.
Some people simply read.

But regardless that means a lot to me.

I started back in June(July?) with the sole intent of meeting people to chat about Pokemon and Anime. And that’s what I’ve done. I look forward to logging in every day to chat with cool people.

January was our biggest month. Post everyday was challenging with school, but I’m glad I stuck with it.

I thought that would be the biggest thing I did on this account, but I have a project coming up that I hope you guys will enjoy.

I’m still learning to be a good blogger. I’m still developing my own personality and style. I’m still working on networking and meeting new people.(I rarely comment on stuff. I gotta change that this year).

Anyway, I hope you guys have enjoyed the content so far. I’m open to reviewing any anime or manga. Follow me on here and get involved with the content. Follow me on twitter and let’s chat.

Here’s to a good year and 100 more post. Thanks to everyone who motivated me to keep blogging

As always, thanks for reading!

Check back tomorrow for more daily post!
