Naruto Chapter 579 – “AND I’M A DRAGON NOW!”
Oh boy, Kabuto just made me laugh so amazingly hard, ah it hurts…*cough cough cough…ahahahahahahahah, hahahah. It’s great how the snake race also has their own sage and path like the toads of Myōbokuzan. Pretty cool that Kishimoto-sensei is going in some depth with the snakes because ever since learning about Myōbokuzan and that the toads had their own society, I was curious to see if other summoned creatures had something similar. So if Myōbokuzan is the home of toads, and if Ryūchi Cave is the home of snakes, does this mean that Shikkotsu Forest is the home of slugs? There is no basis but it does sound like it could be the case.
Spring Anime Season 2012
It’s almost time, the Spring Anime Season 2012 is about to begin!! (well it began in March but most of the shows actually air in April). I must say we have some quality shows this season, I haven’t lately been this excited for a season as much as I am for this one. The line-up is huge, so many series airing this season, and there are so many series I am looking forward to watching =D. So let’s get things rolling.
Bleach Chapter 485 – The Fall Of Hueco Mundo
Wow, I’m genuinely shocked and overwhelmingly excited, I was not expecting any of these twists this chapter. Having both Nel and Tier appear in the same chapter after so long, how incredibly awesome, what a great chapter. So Hueco Mundo is now under the Vandenreich’s control, and Tier Harribel has been captured (noooooooooooo!! – is this the reason why the Arrancar have to obey Vandenreich, because they have Hueco Mundo’s Queen?). What despairing circumstances, I hope Tier is saved soon, those Vandenreich guys, especially the King, are bad news, real bad news – he killed his subordinates!
Fairy Tail Chapter 276 – Spirits Ablaze
Did not expect the second day to come so soon, was ready for some more drama during the night of the first day, but very glad that wasn’t the case, wanted to see more of the Grand Magic Games =D. Mashima-sensei is progressing this arc at such an excellent pace; just the right amount of drama, not spending too long on each scene, delivering a very healthy dose of quality humour (hahah Natsu and the other Dragon Slayers), and treating us to some great “battles”.
Fairy Tail Chapter 246-275 – Reclaiming Number One
Lost time and lost reality, hidden regrets and shadowing sadness; the world dawns anew shining a light seven years old on eyes closed but for a moment. A miracle born from the magic of faith and bonds, called upon by the thoughts of each of them, embraced by the hearts they share with one another, empowered by the love they have for each other; yes, a magic known as a miracle answers their call but the reality of “then” freezes over.
Through the nothingness and silence of seven years sleeps the heart of the fairies, beckoned by their bonds and awakened by their faith in each other, the fairies awaken to a world hosting a reality seven years on. Tattered wings and fallen fairies; those who endured these seven years fill their mind with memories of the past, yet through the hopelessness and compounding despair, echoes of the past resound through their hearts and as seen in their treasured dreams, memories of “then” materialise into the “now”. The beat of the heart breathes life into the fairies and like fire, it spreads igniting their spirits and setting their love for Fairy Tail ablaze.
A different time, a new present, a changed world; the Fairies of Fairy Tail have awakened after their seven-year filled frozen moment asleep and set their eyes on reclaiming their throne, the throne with the title of being number one, the number one guild in Fiore.
One Piece Chapter 660 – Complications
Complications is an understatement, the can of worms just exploded with the “Strawhats”, Trafalgar Law and Smoker + G-5 meeting each other. The G-5 Marine expressed what all the readers were thinking – this Island is weird! And it’s no surprise those Marines were overwhelmed, all the strange things that showed up or occurred in the this arc has a way of overwhelming you. Interesting how Law was surprised to see the Strawhats, it implies he is not exactly in the know about what is going on around this Island. But whats more interesting is the Law vs Smoker showdown that is about to take place (unless something happens to spoil this match-up).
Naruto Chapter 578 – The Weakness Of The Edo Tensei Jutsu
And here I was wondering what exactly Itachi would say the weakness of the Edo Tensei jutsu is…what a legendary badass Itachi. Just like Kabuto was, I was totally caught me off guard because that response was so TRUE! Itachi IS the weakness of the Edo Tensei jutsu which Kabuto has been boasting about so proudly since the start of this Fourth Shinobi World War Arc when he activated it. And the Itachi and Sasuke team-up, how awesome is that? I’m starting to like Sasuke more and more this Arc; now that he has met Itachi, he is really acting different than his usual “dark” self which wants to destroy everything. He is seeking answers now, answers that will help him understand himself and exactly what he wants or at the very least point him in the direction in which to look.
Naruto Chapter 551-577 – The Shinobi Called Uzumaki Naruto
A darkness ignored by everyone, existences forgotten by all, power sought for control, and voices dampened from fear; the tailed beast chained by the whims of man and entrapped to meaningless conflict created by humans. Within their prisons, chains of hate weigh them down but within their confines deep in the darkness, an echo of hope resounds radiantly within a ray of light; one man, one shinobi reaches his hands out, in hopes for change, and for a present filled with peace and understanding he and many seek, he steps forward and challenges the past, Uzumaki Naruto is here! Within his heart and within his eyes burns a conviction stronger than the sun strengthened by the beliefs and hopes of everyone supporting him, the end and the beginning converge together to reveal the today the tomorrow holds. Yes, I can see it, that path beginning to open up, the end to this cycle of hatred, and the man at the center of this change.
One Piece Chapter 659 – *Knock Knock
Wow!! Even though I expected to see Trafalgar Law this arc and accepted the fact that he could be the Shichibukai being referred to by the Samurai, I’m still completely shocked that Law is in fact on the Island and is a Shichibukai! The question “WHY” pops up boldly in my mind, just what is Law thinking, what is his plan? Why become a Shichibukai? Why is he on the Island? No doubt Law thought long and hard about his plan to become Pirate King after meeting Luffy and saving his life, so it’s obvious he has some sort of plan and becoming a Shichibukai may just have provided him with the platform necessary to jump off towards his goal of obtaining One Piece and becoming the Pirate King.
