I liked the Gildarts chapter, damnit.

Time Travel Paradox: If it had happened, it would have already happened.

Sending Natsu on the sneaky rescue mission seems ill-advised, except to put him where the Big Tell is. In fact, strategically Juvia would be best for a mission that involves sneaking into places, considering she's basically a puddle of water.

Well, we did always wonder where Zeref knew Natsu from. Now we have an idea.

Naruto: The Matrix has you, Uzumaki.

Bleach: I thought Byakuya was already dead.

One Piece: That dragon is way too adorable.

YOU THOUGHT WRONG, *****

So, I thought that the art in this chapter was quite good. The plot? Well, can't say anything that hasn't already been said a thousand times. Though Byakuya saying "Please" is both funny and disappointing.

Naruto Shippuden: So I'm almost caught up with the series on Hulu, and I'm on the episode where reanimated Zabuza and Haku have their little flash backs. My questions is: did they retcon Haku so he's a chick now? He's wearing a lot more lipstick then he originally was in the earlier episodes.

Haku's differing appearance is due to a change in art style. All of the long running anime series have had numerous changes to characters appearances.

I think today's Fairy Tail was a joke about how main characters always stand around for periods of time while everyone else advances and then has to spend several chapters playing catch up.

I have nothing but love for Toriko, and will continue to espouse it's greatness until the English speaking anime/manga fans finally realize how awesome it is. It gets no ******* love. Seriously, it's like... the last Jump manga translated each week, and even though it airs RIGHT BEFORE onepiece, it usually goes 3-4 days before it actually gets subbed, and the only group subbing it has had their release quality slowly declining of late. It's really aggravating.

I don't think it's so much "Sending Natsu on the sneaky rescue mission" as it is "Sending Mirajane and Wendy along with Natsu to make sure that there's someone there who can keep him from doing something utterly stupid." Basically, Mirajane is babysitting, since she's probably still stronger than Natsu when she needs to be, and Wendy's there to... idk. Something.

I've been enjoying the way Shippuuden's creative with its filler lately. Rather than making up some randomass side story arc to interrupt everything, they're expanding on stuff from the manga that was only briefly covered. Like, next week's episode is apparently a filler episode about Pakura, one of the reanimated ninja who was only really shown alongside, and totally drowned out by, the Seven Swordsmen of the Mist in the manga. I remember as I was reading the war arc that somethings felt really glossed over, and sort of saw this type of thing coming (ie: Kishimoto intentionally glossed over a lot of the less plot-centric elements of the war arc, making us aware of them, and acknowledging that they happened, but not actually devoting chapters to them; and he did this for the sake of giving the anime a lot of stuff to work with as far as filler episodes go. I wouldn't be shocked if Kishimoto has said, or will say, something about the side stories in the anime during this arc actually being cannon, or that he even wrote them himself and just left them out of the manga)

Wendy is there as the WHM of the group, and to cast Troma or whatever it's called right after they move Lucy and the other girl to a vehicle. The Brazilian Vorhees was a funny touch.

I've gotten bored with predicting what happens in Bleach, and have moved on to predicting how Kube will troll his fans.

Fan asks: Kube, why do you never draw any backgrounds in Bleach?
Kube: I do. All the white you see is Ichigo's reiatsu, that's why he's so strong.

Naruto How the **** are the good guys still even standing at this point?

Bleach Aaaaaaaand Ichigo is now half human half Shinigami half Hollow half Quincy.

Actually now that im thinking about it, We assumed the spoiler about Ichigo being half human half shinigami was eluded to but was cut off. Im guessing he's half shinigami (His father) Half Quincy (His Mother) Still leaves the loophole in the story why his mom was unable to kill KingFisher then if she was a quincy. But I guess you could toss it out there she died because she was protecting Ichigo. This would also explain why he(Ichigo's dad) knows the Ishada's and they arent killing each other on sight (Possibly related?), and since Ishada's are the most powerful of the quincy (and some of the last i believe) and I'm going to go on a limb and say the Kurasaki's are going to be from one of the special families(Like Bayaku's).

As for the Half Hollow I'm guessing is over, since it was because of an incomplete awakening of his powers, He died for a few moments before he got his powers or something. I'm unsure if he still has hollow in him, he might since it seems all Shinigami have a hallow part (Vizards) but it needs to be pulled out?

Hmm Also that explains why His Father left, the whole quincy/shinigami hating each other would do it. But still leaves a few threads out there.


Edit in: the more i think about it, this would explain why They trapped Ichigo, and after the Big bad thought he 'defeated' him he said to take Ichigo resuscitate him and make him join them. I mean they really don't seem to like Shinigami with the whole killing em all, why would they make one join?
Going out on a limb I'm going to predict that the Big Bad is related to Ichigo in some way, His mothers father maybe? Seems predictable, also would explain why the Big Bad was like " 'enemy' I am but at the same time I'm not.

Also I hate these short *** chapters, seriously he needs to either double the length when it's all action or they need to force him to add dialog or something.

Sorry to double post but I wanted to make some predictions about Bleach since I have it on the mind.

This is how i predict the next chapters to go:

Ichigo free-balls with his new powers and pushes back against the Big Bad.
Big Bad plays with Ichigo showing he's still stronger (possible Hallow Ichigo break out, if thats still a thing) and says something about being done in Soul Society and takes off.
Start clean up of Soul Society, Urahara shows up, says Ichigo should talk to his dad.
Ichigo confronts dad, find out mom was Quincy etc etc. Mini Flashback Arc.
Ichigo goes to Ishada's Dad asks to be trained to use his quincy powers, find out little sister is training also (The other one who has spiritual power(Karen i think?)). and thats where shes been running off too.
Training sequence ensues, We find out exactly why Big Bad is doing what hes doing.
Everyone teams up, Rukia/ Renji (Team Shinigami), Chad, Orihime (Team Hallow), Ishada/Ichigo's Sister (Team Quincy) and Ichigo (Team Eveything) goto beat last boss.
and then Orihime transforms them all into Quinc-gami-hallow Zord (or Voltron), except Ichigo who pilots them all, and the universe explodes from pure awesome.









Yeah something like that.


Anyway burning question:
Who's going to run Soul Society now? I mean Captian dudes cut in half, Rukia's Brother is dead (It seems), Kenpachi is dead(Offscreen fight For the lose. Kenpachi was one of my favorites.), and the other Captains seem to be hurting. The sick guys doesn't seem up to it, The lazy guy I couldn't see doing it. Mad scientist **** no, Healer chick, meh maybe. Spiky haired genius brat, too young. Vizard guy, maybe. Assassin chick doubt it. Urahara, Im guessing or possibly Yoruichi seems kinda unlikely, and Lastly Ichigo's dad, but he gave up all his power to give Ichigo his power back I thought?

Whatever the explanation to Ichigo's talent for being everything is, it's still annoying.

Naruto: Two weeks to the Obito fight. That looks to be interesting.

One Piece: I kind of thought Zoro could already use Haki, but I guess this is the fight he learns how to.

Yea, I thought that was pretty obvious, and saw the late arrival a mile away.

sidenote: luffy flat out said that he, zoro, and sanji can all use haki now, a few chapters back, and that they were the only three strawhats who could, meaning that the rest of the crew can't. However, Luffy's the only one of the three who's realistically going to fight a woman without holding back, and even then it's not something he'd do without being forced into it.

It has been mentioned that early releases really mess up the sense of time, hasn't it? Because it really messes me up.

Bleach:
BeanX wrote:

And half-arrancar and half-bount and half-whatever those last guys that got him his shinigami powers back and if the series went longer half of that as well. I'm guessing the reason she couldn't beat King Fisher was because she was so powerful that her fighting would have put Ichigo at harm, or that there was a hostage involved or whatever goofy crap they can come up with.


One Piece: Zoro pretty much wins through pure intimidation alone. Pure awesome.

Naruto: On break, I think. I don't know this early release crap is ridiculous.
