One Piece Chapter 754 – Zoro VS Pica

One Piece chapter 754 - Zoro's 1080 Pound Cannon

Well dam, that was awesome. Robin’s “you’ve gotten more powerful” reaction was great

Now we know what happens when Zoro unsheathes his swords, things get annihilated. Thanks for coming Pica, but you never stood a chance, best find some place to hide now that you are caught between a rock and a hard place. Man that smile of Zoro’s is so satisfying to see after he unleashes. It is about time he made the Donquixote Pirates aware of how demonic and terrifying he can be. Hopefully Robin and Franky get moments to shine as well this arc.

Naruto Chapter 686 – Obito’s Scarifice

Naruto chapter 686 - Obito and Kakashi - colour by StingCunha (http://stingcunha.deviantart.com)

Ready to protect the future – colour by StingCunha

It is said that ‘circumstances don’t make a man, they reveal one’ and that is exactly what happened to Obito in the current chapter. Obito may have walked away from his principles and dreams when he encountered Madara and after he lost so much, but through all that and the circumstances he has faced, he has now awakened to who he really is. From a lost soul hoping for destruction and delusion, to one now aware of the voice in his heart and soul, Obito has manifested the resolve to walk in front of everyone on this path filled with darkness and pain in order to lead them all into a reality less destructive than the one he suffered in.

Bleach Chapter 590 – The Incandescent Mayuri

Bleach chapter 590 - Arrancar

Colour me shocked, what an unexpected twist

What a satisfyingly glorious chapter. Mayuri just knows how to bring the classy to weird and dam does he get down to business fast. That swagger he brings with his superiority complex can be ridiculously enjoyable to witness at times. His personality just like his outfit outshines all others.  As for Giselle and Bambietta, I find myself quite disturbed by the implied context of their exchange concerning Bambietta’s “needs”. Thankfully though Mayuri was there to sanitize the situation with his scientific grandeur and sheer madness.

One Piece Chapter 753 – The Strawhat Alliance Unites

One Piece chapter 753 - The Strawhat Alliance unites

The anger towards the Donquixote Pirates has driven the Colosseum fighters to unite against Doflamingo

Looks like the antagonistic nature of the Donquixote Pirates are effectively going to be what causes Doflamingo and his organisation to fall. Just because they have made so people suffer in such tragic and inhuman ways is reason enough for group of rag-tag pirates, criminals and fighters to band together and pursue a single purpose – to make sure that Doflamingo does not win.

Naruto Chapter 685 – Locating Uchiha Sasuke

Naruto chapter 685 - Time is short - colour by X7Rust (http://x7rust.deviantart.com)

Time is short – colour by X7Rust

Even if Sakura isn’t directly engaging an enemy, it is great that Kishimoto-sensei is trying to focus on her by utilising her medical abilities and combining them with Obito’s ability to open dimensions. It still would have been better if Sakura did actively engage an opponent in battle, but regardless, Sakura giving her all to locate Sasuke in order to help Naruto was nice to see. Also fantastic work by Obito in straining his eyes trying to open the dimensions of Kaguya in order to locate Sasuke. Hopefully he does have enough vitality to return Sasuke back to the dimension Naruto is engaging Kaguya in.

Bleach Chapter 589 – A Vacation To The Soul King’s Palace

Bleach chapter 589 - Yoruichi and Kisuke

It took me a moment to spot the bottles…

Is there anything Kisuke can’t do? Regardless of what ends up being asked of him, he ends up delivering and even has a good time in the process – the situation he created thanks to taking advantage of Inoue’s feelings for Ichigo, how amusing it was. Great chapter, I was hoping the focus would shift back to Ichigo, Sado, Inoue and Kisuke, and it did, but Kubo-sensei took it even further and had Yoruichi return into the story – yay! I also am liking how great a team Kisuke and Mayuri are making, able to rely on each other to counter whatever the Quincy come up with.

Fairy Tail Chapter 392 – Something To Live For

Fairy Tail chapter 392 - Overcoming despair

Overcoming despair and realising what to live for

I thought that it was incredibly weird for Deliora to visit the grave of someone during his introduction, I ended up rationalising that as Silver having control over his body at that time, but the actuality of circumstances has revealed that Deliora was never revived and the control Silver had over his body was never relinquished. Was Tartarus fooled as well believing that Deliora was resurrected or did Mard Geer find some way to force Silver and his Devil Slaying abilities to work for his cause? Whatever the case I am incredibly interested to see the reason Silver has for deceiving his son and forcing Gray to realise just how much he doesn’t want to throw his life away.
