One Piece Chapter 847 – Big Mom’s Library

One Piece Chapter 847 - Big Mom's Library

My goodness, how many poor souls are trapped inside those books?

Big Mom’s definitely gone and done it now, uttering that very phrase in front of Luffy which has spelt the doom of a many who have come before. Despite the situation, despite the gap in power, despite the difference in status, despite the numbers, despite the varying experiences, whenever anyone challenges Luffy to the title of the Pirate King, a raging fire ignites within him subsequently consuming those challenging him. Big Mom has made a mistake, keeping Luffy alive has just sealed her fate. Once Luffy is free, he won’t let things slide; on top of Big Mom being a danger to Fishman Island, on top of Big Mom taking Sanji away, she now stands in Luffy way on the path to becoming Pirate King. And lets not forget, once Luffy finds out what Big Mom did to Jinbe, he will not forgive her.

Fairy Tail Chapter 511 – Sting VS Larcade

Fairy Tail chapter 511 - Sting VS Larcade

Dragon Slayer VS Desire Slayer

Looks like Natsu is central to this very battle; Sting has a favour to repay to Natsu for helping him and Sabertooth out during the Grand Magic Games and Larcade has a burning desire to kill Natsu for stealing his father’s attention and interest way from him. Larcade’s existence is getting more mysterious by the chapter, he has now been noted by Sting as having the same smell as Natsu which heavily implies if not confirms that Larcade was made in the same way as Natsu. Given this information, how does Mavis fit in? Continue reading

One Piece Chapter 846 – The Big Mom Pirates

One Piece Chapter 846 - Luffy VS Big Mom Pirates

How would the situation play out if Luffy were at full strength

I’m not really sure what to think of this arc, it’s developing in a really unexpected way albeit with a predictable end, or so I assume. Ever since the Zou Arc, Oda-sensei has handled the arcs at a sought of tangent from how the story would usually develop, this is probably largely due to the Yonko becoming the focus and the crew having been split in half. Now with every chapter, I find myself both surprised and in wonder towards where Oda-sensei is taking the elements in his story. The end result may be predictable, but I just cannot read the flow of the story. At the same time, it is both challenging and exciting constantly being overwhelmed by awe and the lack of predictability in regards to how the apparent defined end will be reached. Continue reading

Fairy Tail Chapter 510 – The Bond Shared Between The Dragon Slayers

Fairy Tail chapter 510 - Natsu's parents

Nice to finally see what Natsu’s parents look like

Guess the Sting VS Larcade match up did come to pass. Fgures as both mages utilise light magic as their element, it was inevitable. Been waiting for this match up as well as Sting needs to prove his capabilities as a guild leader and make up for the failure he displayed when they were defeated earlier. Sting needs this battle to showcase just how strong Sabertooth really are and to prove to Yukino that he is worthy of her belief. Regarding Natsu, what exactly is the identity of the disturbance inside his body? Wasn’t it just the amalgamation of the dark energy inside him? Guess it is something more significant than I initially realised. Continue reading

Fairy Tail Chapter 509 – Larcade Dragneel

Fairy Tail chapter 509 - Kagura

Kagura VS Larcade

Wait, what? Is Mashima-sensei seriously implying what I believe he is implying? When did Mavis give birth to a child? Was this after their kiss and before he dumped her body in front of Hades? If this is the case, wouldn’t Larcade be incredibly old? Is Larcade an illusion created by Mavis? The are so many questions. Honestly, I did not expect this. Neither did I expect Kagura being dispatched so effortlessly by Larcade. Let’s hope Mashima-sensei has more planned for her! Continue reading

One Piece Chapter 845 – The Impending Wedding

One Piece chapter 845 - Sanji and Pudding

Have you really fallen for her, Sanji?

I don’t know if it just me but something about Pudding just seems off. She seems too pure to be exactly who she appears to be. Pudding is nice, considerate, innocent, seemingly gentle, apparently naive, a cook (chocolate) and she is pretty to top it all off. None of those characteristics match with Big Mom at all. So far Oda-sensei has made it a point to illustrate the similarity between her children and herself, whether aesthetically, psychologically, or personality-wise. There has been something we could connect between the child and Big Mom. And for this reason, I find Pudding incredibly suspicious and a concerning element within the arc.

Fairy Tail Chapter 508 – The Innocence Of Experience

Fairy Tail chapter 508 - Kagura arrives

What an unexpected surprise, looking forward to this battle

Well this chapter sure developed in an unexpected way. Why does Larcade even have the ability to unleash a wave of pleasure onto those who have experienced it before? Sure it made for one ‘interesting’ chapter but what an awkward turn of events. Larcade did return the favour (to an extent) to Fairy Law as several characters are now incapacitated due to the embrace of pleasure. With the pure mermaid, Kagura, now having entered the fray, Larcade may have met a being of more purity to challenge him.

Doctor Strange (2016) Review

Doctor Strange Poster 1

The possibilities are endless

One aspect I love about the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is how each film tries to differentiate itself from what came before and how each film pushes forward a different theme/genre within the universe ultimately expanding on what we know so far. Sure there is a formulaic approach underlying the MCU but the surrounding material that fills the variables does its best to characterise the film as unique with a distinct personality. Doctor Strange introduces the relevance of magic (and the multiverse) within the MCU and the dark forces present eager to sink their darkness within the Earth and its populace.

Doctor Strange is a story about a genius surgeon who loses the use of his hands after an accident. Out of options and possibilities within medical science, he finds hope within a similar case that leads him to Kathmandu. There he meets the Ancient One and learns that what he knows about the world is just a fraction of actuality.
