Bleach Chapter 577 – Nozarashi Unleased

Bleach chapter 577 - Kenpachi enthralled

Well dam, you just unleashed the beast Gremmy…

I did say last week that I had wanted Zaraki to quickly dispatch of the meteorite followed by Gremmy, but after seeing how beautifully Kubo-sensei highlighted Zaraki, I don’t freaking mind that it took one whole chapter just to get Zaraki to demolish that meteorite! The sheer audacity Zaraki has to challenge a meteorite of such a massive size, and to do dispose of it in such an effortless fashion, I couldn’t help but be satisfied at how badass Zaraki (and Nozarashi) is.

Shokugeki No Soma Chapter 66 – Souma VS Alice END

Shokugeki no Soma chapter 66 - Souma and Alice

Souma and Alice, the conclusion to the battle

To be able to delve into the world of cooking with such a fearless approach and yet be able to understand the complexities of cooking in such a simple way, Souma really is incredible. Souma was able to arrange his thought process for this challenge in such a reflective way to the challenge that every move he made at each stage seemed so simple to understand, yet trying to get your mind structured in such a way first is one of the hardest things to do. To be like water and mold yourself and abilities to the situation and challenge you are facing, such a feat requires immense openness and confidence. Alice may have been too comfortable in the “way” and methods she used to cook that she ended up structuring the challenge around her abilities as opposed to Souma who structured his abilities around the challenge.

Fairy Tail Chapter 380 – Sayla Unleashed

Fairy Tail chapter 380 - Sayla limit release - colour by belucEn (http://belucen.deviantart.com)

Sayla demon form limiter release – colour by belucEn

Thanks to the element of the Tartarus demons being able to be revived at the resurrection lab in Cube, the Mirajane and Sayla battle became significantly more meaningful, especially when Lamy spilled the beans and revealed the purpose of the lab, “Hell’s Core”. The way Mirajane dealt with the lab and Tartarus’s ability to revive themselves was quite surprising and impressive, I certainly did not expect Mirajane to have taken control of the tentacle thing in the lab, but regardless, seeing Mirajane destroy the reviving containers with Ezel and Franmalth inside was totally satisfying. The main highlight of the chapter though was Sayla and her released demon form, she overwhelmed Mirajane (in her Sitri form) instantaneously after transforming, it was shockingly good. The appearance of the Tartarus Demon King, topped off an already great chapter with another exciting development.

One Piece Chapter 744 – Sabo Makes His Move

One Piece chapter 744 - Sabo, Koala and Hack

Sabo reveals himself! The second-in-command of the Revolutionary Army

What an unbelievably amazing chapter that was thoroughly satisfying to read. Sabo was able to make himself the victor of the Corrida Colosseum and finally consume the Mera Mera no Mi. Those “dragon” themed attacks of his can now become even more fantastical and magical with the Mera Mera no Mi fire powers. Back down in the Underground Trading Port, Usopp has become a god to those cast into the pits of despair when they were enslaved by Doflamingo, but now with Usopp having saved them; their joy, gratitude and happiness is all directly associated with Usopp. From a lie told out of insecurity in the past, Usopp now has the army he always dreamed of having. And their first target of wrath is the SMILE factory.

Naruto Chapter 672 – The Crimson Blaze Of Guy

Naruto chapter 672 - The Crimson Blaze of Guy

Imbuing every essence of life within his final attack, Guy unleashes!

Through the expressions of a man’s will, resolve, conviction, and youth, the form of a man takes on substance and through the ever-increasing resounding call of death, the “blaze” of a man is ignited. In these final moments of life rapidly fleeting away like the setting of the sun, Guy forsakes his very form and unleashes himself completely, putting every essence of life, spirit and youth into an attack representative of everything that he is.

Bleach Chapter 576 – Twisted Excitement II

Bleach chapter 576 - Zaraki overwhelming Gremmy

Gremmy still hasn’t realised how much of beast Zaraki really is…

I love Zaraki, but Gremmy is just not cutting the mustard for me, I seriously find myself losing interest in this fight the longer it goes on, especially since this battle is one in which Zaraki shines and Gremmy loses (Gremmy being annoying with his cockiness doesn’t help at all). Hopefully though there is some twist that I won’t be expecting coming up. The mystery of Zaraki’s zanpakutou though is extremely interesting, especially with him invoking its name at the end of this chapter. Zaraki vs Gremmy’s meteorite should be exciting, but hopefully after he deals with it, he quickly dispatches Gremmy as he has already passed his expiration date as an interesting character.
