If America has World War Z, Britain 28 Days Later, Australia Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead, then South Korea has Train to Busan. A powerful character driven film with the zombie apocalypse in its outbreak stage that reveals not only the dark and depressing nature of human beings but the contrasting elements of belief, determination and sacrifice. Emotional, tense, exciting and tragic, Train to Busan is an inspiring and compelling take on the zombie-genre.

One Piece Chapter 844 – Luffy And Sanji
Luffy may not be the smartest pirate to sail the seas, but my goodness can he see through people. He is able to look past the apparent form and understand what lies beneath hidden away. Sanji was doing his best to find an outcome that saves the most people, even if it meant sacrificing his own dreams in the process. Luffy understood the hollowness in Sanji’s comments as well as the pain within his kicks and chose to continue believing in Sanji. As much as Sanji wanted Luffy to leave, Luffy knows he needs to stay. Their bond has not been severed. And Luffy knows Sanji does not really want to sever their bond.
Fairy Tail Chapter 507 – Message
Buried under the rage of negativity, feelings of camaraderie and respect blur into obscurity as the meaning of a guild loses itself under the weight of that animosity. Natsu and Gray have cast themselves into their primal rage and through that submerged state, they lost sight of the bonds they share. Carrying the teachings of Makarov and in essence, Fairy Tail, Erza pierces through their hostility reminding them of the bond they share. Through her pain and resonance with Makarov’s teachings, Natsu and Gray come to escape the destructive states they found themselves in.
One Piece Chapter 843 – Sanji And Luffy
The Vinsmoke Family truly has Sanji backed into a corner that he had no choice but to reject Luffy and lie about his feelings for the Straw Hat Pirates. In order to protect all those that he cherishes and cares about, he has to play the villain in this instance and reluctantly chase away his comrades who have invaded the heart of a Yonko’s territory to get him back. Obviously Luffy is not backing down…yet, this ultimately forces Sanji to challenge Luffy in order to physically ‘remove’ them. With Sanji ready to battle Luffy, one has to wonder whether Luffy is ready to do the same.
Fairy Tail Chapter 506 – A Guild Is A Family
Completely oblivious to the events taking place, Natsu and Gray continue their misguided feud. While there is a ‘reason’ for the two of them to oppose each other, there is an overwhelming counter argument for why the two shouldn’t have even entertained the thought of fighting each other at this point in time i.e. there is war ongoing with Fairy Tail at the center. Fortunately, their imprudent battle has been interrupted and through this intervention, they will be reminded of the meaning of Fairy Tail.
Fairy Tail Chapter 505 – Sacrifice
A man driven by his love, a leader motivated by his responsibility and a father inspired by his family; Makarov, the Guild Master of Fairy Tail, makes the ultimate sacrifice in order to ensure a future for his ‘family’, one that allows for everyone save himself to survive. Aware of the pain awaiting his children, Makarov bears the burden for them and uses his own life to pave a path forward into tomorrow against the countless soldiers enchanted into ravaging berserkers. Through Fairy Law Makarov nullifies their evil but pays for it with the remainder of his life.
One Piece Chapter 842 – Tankman VS Cracker
What a fantastic chapter, both refreshing and hilarious. I know Luffy was the focus of the chapter as he defeated Cracker but the focus Nami got to both agonise and expose Cracker’s weakness was brilliant. Cracker definitely did underestimate the Straw Hats but there was no way he could have expected the situation to turn out as it had, to be defeated in such a way, how ridiculously awesome.
Fairy Tail Chapter 504 – Gray VS E.N.D.
The unavoidable battle between Natsu and Gray has finally begun and the void now existing between the two has compelled each of them to bear their fist against the other. Friends, now turned into obstacles that the other needs to stop. Natsu driven by his demon nature to seek out Zeref and destroy him and Gray, resolved to dispose of Zeref’s demons as vengeance against what they had done to his parents and Ur. With each of them suffering from a severe case of tunnel vision, it looks like outside influence is needed in bringing them both back to their senses.
One Piece Chapter 841 – The Vinsmoke Name
Just when I thought Vinsmoke Judge couldn’t be more of a fiend, he goes ahead and proves me wrong. I look forward to the day that smirk of his disappears in the moment he finds everything he fought, killed and destroyed for crumbles in front of him. The marriage between Sanji and Pudding is not going to happen and it is going to be so sweet seeing Judge come to terms with that realisation. For Judge to be so consumed by power, strength and status, he may be effective in wars, but he was a terrible father. The Vinsmoke name to Judge is a name to be feared, to strike terror in the hearts of any unfortunate to hear it uttered and a name he desires one day to be synonymous with the leaders of North Blue.
