Fairy Tail Chapter 390 – Deliora Returns

Fairy Tail chapter 390 - Deliora returns

It makes so much sense now, but I certainly didn’t foresee this prior

Memories of a tragedy resurface to cast the wounds of despair asunder and with it the agony endured once again embraces its host. Gray, the tragedies of his life and face of his weakness, Deliora embodies it all. Unable to do anything in the past when his parents died and when his master sacrificed herself to seal away his darkness, the agony of inability washes over him once again and reminds him of a time he lost so much. Fury overcomes him and with the monster of his nightmares standing before him, Gray throws it all away relinquishing the control over his suffering. With darkness entrapping Gray once again, who will be the one to seal away his “darkness” this time?

One Piece Chapter 751 – Sabo’s Regret

One Piece chapter 751 - Sabo's regret

Poor Sabo…

It has finally come to light, Sabo’s regret at his inability to save Ace. Just like Luffy who broke down after Ace died in his arms, the agony and pain Sabo must have felt that he wasn’t even able to reach Marineford to help Ace at all, such torment must have been eating him up inside these past two years. Knowing that he could have done something, it is no wonder Sabo has expressly resolved to come to Luffy’s aid no matter where he is in the world whenever Luffy request his help. The feelings of regret Sabo and helplessness, he never again wants to feel that way.

Naruto Chapter 682 – Breaking Through

Naruto chapter 682 - Naruto and Sasuke

The two of the together really do make a wonderful team

Well that was shocking, I knew the Sexy Harem Jutsu was powerful and useful but the application in which it was used for and the variation which Naruto developed, I am left utterly speechless and stunned at his unpredictability. But that was fantastic, Kaguya’s reaction to the jutsu was priceless, for a being bordering the level of God to have such a human reaction and expression, it was immensely amusing. Naruto certainly is a Shinobi like no other and he is proof that Black Zetsu didn’t have as much control over the history of Shinobi as he believed.

Bleach Chapter 586 – Confrontation

Bleach chapter 586 - Shinigami VS Sternritter

I wonder who the first to fall will be O.o

The Sternritter sure have gotten full of themselves this past arc, although there may have been full of themselves way before that. It is a shame that the majority of them won’t know the terror of Zaraki as they are likely going to be crushed by other Shinigami far less terrifying. Zaraki seriously needs to pick himself up and display to everybody why he is regarded as such a monster when it comes to battle, a monster second to none (except maybe Ichigo). The Shinigami VS Sternritter battle should be interesting, I am curious to see who will come out on top, if any. Uryuu advising Ichigo to leave has me wondering if he has a plan of his own to stop Yhwach =/.

Shokugeki No Soma Chapter 75 – Aiming For The Top

Shokugeki no Soma chapter 75 - Akira's conviction to take the top of Tootsuki Academy

With Hisako only settling for #2 behind Erina, it was obvious why she didn’t have what it takes to take down someone with the desire to take #1

Hayama Akira dominated more than I had expected, he utterly killed that challenged and showcased just how much of a player he is for the top spot of Tootsuki Academy. Hisako’s dish was great, but compared to the depth of flavour, smell and overall expression of Akira’s dish, it wasn’t good enough. Akira displayed right then and there how serious he is in his claims of taking the top. All Hisako could do was crumble under the pressure Akira’s conviction imposed on her. Between a battle of flavours and a battle of wills, Akira came out on top.

Fairy Tail Chapter 389 – Countdown To Despair

Fairy Tail chapter 389 - Rogue and Sting - colour by StingCunha (http://stingcunha.deviantart.com)

Rogue and Sting VS Mard Geer – colour by StingCunha

You know if Mard Geer wasn’t so arrogant and oblivious to dangers Fairy Tail pose to his plan, I would have called him out as a fool for expressly revealing his plan to Erza and Co., but seeing as how it has already been shown that Mard Geer grossly underestimates humans, specifically Fairy Tail, and believes with absolute certainty that they won’t be able to stop him, it follows with his character that he has no problem revealing his plan to his enemies. But who would have thought, Keith, the necromancer, was able to revive Crawford. I guess Crawford will just have to die again =/.

Fairy Tail Chapter 388 – Minerva’s Tears

Fairy Tail chapter 388 - Sabertooth Arrives

I feel so happy for Minerva, she is finally free from the shackles of fear encumbering her so painfully

Frozen by detachment and confused by superiority, the heart of a girl once so full of warmth is smothered by the narrow-mindedness of strength and the fear of weakness. Engraved within her being by the terror of her father and the darkness of his teachings, she distanced herself from her feelings and began to ignore the cries of her heart, cries that craved to be embraced. Yet through her denial of herself and the acknowledgement of who she is, the heart of her emotion began to beat again and with the realisation of a place to belong, tears once dried up and frozen begin to rejuvenate the heart.

Shokugeki No Soma Chapter 74 – World Of Flavours

Shokugeki no Soma chapter 74 - Hisako's soft-shelled turtle hamburger

Quite the creative use of her medicinal cooking knowledge and skills

So beyond appeasing the sense of taste, this culinary battle is also heavily incorporating the other senses that reflect back on the overall satisfaction of the dish. Hisako is utilising her expertise in medicinal cooking to create a texture for her hamburger that pleases the judges sense of touch within their mouth by using a gelatinous sauce to compliment the body of the patty and the softness of the bun. It is a fascinating approach in delivering a dish, especially with the shocking nature of her preparation, but from the reactions of the judges, it does sound like a great dish. Akira on the other hand is using his expertise in spices to indulge the arena spectators and judges with the aroma of his doner kebab.

One Piece Chapter 750 – Shattering The Facade Of Peace

One Piece chapter 750 - colour spread

What a weird bunch of allies but terrifying nonetheless

Viola put it beautifully, right now only the Strawhat Pirates and their allies are capable of shattering the illusions Doflamingo has cast in front of Dressrosa and the world. The World Government are too busy concerning themselves with their own power, influence and relationship with the Tenryuubito that they ignore the cries of those suffering under the hands and manipulation of Doflamingo. Isshou may not be able to see but he is still closing his ears to the cries of the nation in favour of maintaining the duty the Marines hold within the World Government – control and order – something totally different from the peace and well-being of a nation and its citizens.

Naruto Chapter 681 – Black Zetsu

Naruto chapter 681 - Kaguya - colour by HikariNoGiri (http://hikarinogiri.deviantart.com)

What was Kaguya like before she consumed the Shinju fruit? I really do wonder – colour by HikariNoGiri

The plan to revive Kaguya was much more elaborate than I had even imagined, for the origins of the plan to stretch back to the origins of the Shinobi, how shocking. Black Zetsu has just revealed himself to be a completely massive enigma, he says he is Kaguya’s child but is he really? From the story he had shared, he was born in moment Kaguya was being sealed away inside Hagoromo and Hamura. The purpose attached to Black Zetsu was to revive Kaguya, and carried that out by manipulating the path of the Shinobi. Black Zetsu manufactured the conflict between the Uchiha and Senju and utilised the Uchiha’s sensitivity to set-up the Infinite Tsukiyomi and Kaguya’s revival. With that revealed, it begs the question, who exactly is Zetsu? Why was he created and who created him?
