One Piece Chapter 1054 – Samurai VS Ryokugyu: Freedom

One Piece Chapter 1054 - The Samurai take on Ryokugyu

With conflict once again at the doorstep of Wano Kuni, will the Straw Hat Pirates be summoned to the nations defense or will the Samurai of the liberated Country endure to fend off the threat of the newly appointed Admiral? Based on what we have seen, while the Samurai can defend and fend off Ryokugyu’s attacks, they do appear to be overwhelmed by his abilities with just their current forces. If Yamato were to remain alongside them, I can see a path forward but with Momonosuke’s request, there may not be a conclusion for Yamato to this current battle. Along with the events in Wano, around the world varying forces are also making their move. Shanks has set his sights on One Piece and Sabo has become the icon for the Revolutions rebellion. Wrapping around all these developments is Sakazuki and his unphased desire to mete out justice. Once the dust is all settle, how will the structure of the conflict appear?

Edens Zero Chapter 201 – Holy VS Deadend Crow: Retribution

Edens Zero Chapter 201 - Holy takes on Deadend Crow

Deadend Crow remains largely a mystery within the story so far aside from the connection he has with the incident involving a large scale massacre and the fact that he is a machine that despises humans. The aspects of his character that define his story has yet to be touched on. Deadend Crow is presented from the point of view of a villain which naturally evokes contentious feelings. Who developed Deadend Crow and what was his intended application when constructed? Deadend Crow may be present within the arc but likely due to his lacking relevance within the overarching narrative, his proximity within this arc isn’t felt significantly. Why should the audience come to care about his journey? The central driving force behind the intrigue is the vengeance Holy wishes to deliver onto Deadend Crow. What seems necessary at this point is focus on Deadend Crow to flesh him out beyond a template antagonist.

Edens Zero Chapter 200 – Shiki VS Ziggy: Gravity’s Succession

Edens Zero Chapter 200 - Shiki VS Ziggy

Time has revealed itself to be a setting within the spiraling conflict of gravity. The attraction and the repulsion naturally transpiring has threads of time intertwining its force ever respiring. Time usually serves as a container with its subjects bound to its progression but the fluidity of possibility opens the cover of restraint and allows for acts outside its definition to come about. This is where Shiki’s presence collides with Dark Ziggy’s ambitions. Dark Ziggy presumably has the context of time overarching his view yet Shiki is a denizen that resides outside the perspective of Dark Ziggy which is why the weight of Shiki’s existence exasperates Dark Ziggy so exponentially.

Edens Zero Chapter 199 – Special Ether

Edens Zero Chapter 199 - The captured mothers harvested for their Special Ether

I was unprepared for that development, especially the scale on which it unfolded. Revelations were wrapped within revelations wrapped within revelations. I suspected certain elements holding relevance yet the manner in how it was presented left me completely in shock. That was not something I expected yet within the context of Edens Zero and in particular, the intentions of Ziggy, it follows on undeniably naturally. Mother has been Dark Ziggy’s goal since his awakening and to achieve such an end, the villainy he has carried out surpasses any that had been expected of his character. With this reality facing Shiki, there should be only one answer he can arrive at concerning how to respond.

Edens Zero Chapter 198 – Sister VS Clown: Abyss

Edens Zero Chapter 198 - Sister returns to destroy Clown

A fight of sensation. A show of horror. An event without mercy. A result in domination. Clown sought to drown out Sister Ivry within the anguish of his nightmare but little did he know that the waves of exaltation cascading onto the shores of his psyche embodied an ocean too overwhelming for his hollow desires of torment to deprave. This was a game with one victor and it wasn’t the player who cast the nightmare that pretended to defile. Domination resided within the exponent of punishment. The embodiment of which reflected Sister. She unleashed her reckoning and embraced her role as avatar of subversion and agent of the abyss. Retribution against the Nightmare transpired through mental submission and with it the defeat of Clown followed.

Edens Zero Chapter 197 – Homura VS Brigandine: Ascension

Edens Zero Chapter 197 - Homura launches her attack on Brigandine

Our belief in Homura has been answered with a stirring display of resolve, swordplay and conviction. Despite the clear disadvantage she was faced with, her will to protect those she cares for overwhelmed her apprehension and crafted a miracle that saw an awe-inspiring response to the invincible defense in front of her. Outcomes aren’t determined by merely coalesces of conflicting values but more the distribution of how the weight behind those elements are used in their progression. Within each individual and each situation, the subjective factors surrounding each moment play a part in reaching the definition of the result. What Homura did is leverage her offense to momentarily ascend the force in front of her. Defense was sacrificed but ultimate victory was attained. What a rush of exhilaration. You were sublime, Homura.

Edens Zero Chapter 196 – Sister VS Clown: Runtime Error

Edens Zero Chapter 196 - Sister caught off guard by Clown's attack

Clown poses a curious query toward Sister in regards to the essence of life for machines and what constitutes the state of death to them. Expecting no adequate reply, Clown derives his own answer and provides an equally thought-provoking response. When he mentions the outcome of being unable to execute further lines of command, within what context is he referring. Clown is right within the context of isolation (human) where code cannot go further once the execution has stopped but once that state of mind is applied to the realm of reality, the answer becomes a bit more inquisitive. Yes, code cannot run once the execution has stopped but that doesn’t mean the program itself is void. In such circumstances, debugging and rerunning the code are engaged. Unlike a physical body which define humans, androids are more than just their shell, they are a system and intangible code which can be debugged, quarantined and updated.

Fairy Tail: 100 Years Quest Chapter 112 – Selene’s Wish

Fairy Tail: 100 Years Quest Chapter 112 - Selene reveals her dream to Gray

Now that Selene has found an answer to the Five Dragons issue she was consumed by, her demeanor has softened substantially to the point where her obsession over the end sought has given way to relief. A release of distress at the uncertainty and implausibility of achieving what she wished. Desperation paved the path toward her questionable actions and encouraged her methodology of how she balanced anxiety and alleviation. Entertainment became Selene’s medicine when remedying the madness deduced from the magnitude of her mission. There was no room left for compassion, only an equal level of madness to propel herself forward toward the darkened path before her. With Selene’s eyes now focused on the answer to her concerns, she appears to see more clearly than ever before. And within this newfound realization, Selene also appears to be reflecting on the equivocal nature of her past actions.

Fairy Tail: 100 Years Quest Chapter 111 – Selene’s Gambit

Fairy Tail: 100 Years Quest Chapter 111 - Selene constructs a plan to defeat Dogramag

It has begun, the shift of Selene from antagonist toward a role akin to antihero. It was always apparent from the start that despite Selene’s categorization, she never served a traditional antagonistic role but was more an entity concerned with their own self-interest and enjoyment. Yet now we have an official path forward for Selene toward representing a player within the Fairy Tail universe that embodies an independent force beyond protagonist and antagonist. Unlike Fairy Tail, Selene understands the resulting possibilities of Ignia and Dogramag’s current actions and as a result of the potential consequences, she has gathered together the members of Fairy Tail within the Labyrinth to pry open a path forward for Natsu and Suzaku to defeat Dogramag.

Summer Time Rendering – Episode 3-4

Summer Time Rendering Episode 3 - Ushio appears

If I were to use a phrase to describe the journey of Summer Time Rendering from the perspective of the main character it would be “forget what you see, remember what you forgot”. On first reading it appears the two parts of that statement threads over the same meaning but within that circular logic there is very much a varying impression of subtlety and depth. Reflecting it against the context of Summer Time Rendering, it speaks towards the growing need for Shinpei to distrust the reality before him (which he sees) and attach more emphasis on the memories he possesses of his “past” and the interactions with a certain dear individual (what he remembers through each “progression”). When the danger of doubt exist within the shadows of trust, it becomes necessary to embrace the unconventional suspicion of apprehension.
