Character Birthday Challenge ~ Kabuto

Written by: Nitaya
Yes, I know it's February 28th. But I don't want to wait another 3 years to do Kabuto's challenge. And I don't want Micha to haunt me for the rest of my days for not doing it... so there you have it.
Favorite personality trait:
His determination. Even if it’s creepy he used Orochimaru’s DNA to become as he is know, you can’t say he isn’t determined. Everything he did from the moment he joined Orochimaru up to the things he doing now, is to find his own identity. He never lost sight of his ultimate goal in life. That’s determination.

Bleach 528 Review – “Everything But the Rain”

Bleach 528 Review – “Everything But the Rain”

Written by: ClayDragon

The newest Bleach chapter sees Ichigo return home after being banished from the Soul Society by Ouetsu, and seems to take a break from the fighting to go into a bit more detail regarding Ichigo’s past.

Ending up outside his house (in his physical body as opposed to his Shinigami form), Ichigo calls out to Urahara, before realising that Urahara is still in Hueco Mundo with Orihime and Chad. As Ichigo’s front door opens, he dashes away, avoiding a confrontation with his father.

"Maybe I should have brought an umbrella..."

Naruto 622 Review: "Romeo and Juliet WTF?"

Written by: Eli
I think I'm at the end of my successful parkour title bending run for these chapter review, but this one right here was signed, sealed and delivered to me on a silver flippin' platter. I mean don't get me wrong, I'm actually enjoying this flashback within a flashback as I've mentioned in the previous review, but the whole hiding clan name thing is a bit too..I don't know Shakespearean? Where art thou, Where art thou O Hashirama?!

Or maybe we should be thinking a little more Suzanne Collinsean?

Bleach 527 Review - "Eliminate From Heaven"

Bleach 527 Review - "Eliminate From Heaven"

                                                                 Written by: ClayDragon

And so, the play is over.

The latest Bleach chapter sees an end to the Kenpachi vs. Unohana training session that’s being going on for the past few weeks. With Unohana (seemingly) dying in Zaraki’s arms, she bequeaths the title of Kenpachi to him as he begs for her not to die. Just as Unohana thinks to herself that she’s happy with dying, a voice calls out to Kenpachi, which turns out to be coming from none other than his Zanpakuto. Does this mean that we’re finally going to learn more about Kenpachi’s sword?

Gaara and Sasori Cosplay by Nekomatalee


If you're even a little bit active in the fandom, there's a high chance that you might've seen the above picture at least somewhere. She's a US cosplayer and I love her Gaara and Sasori cosplays!

Naruto Anime March 2013 Schedule

If you’ve just had a bad day, I’ve got good news for me because I’m about to make it worse. For people who watch Naruto anime, your days of the good ol’ canon episodes are gone. Because the fillers are returning and you can do nothing about it. Fucker.

Here’s the schedule for March.

  • March 07, 2013
    Naruto Shippuden Episode 303 – Ghosts of the Past

  • March 14, 2013
    Naruto Shippuden Episode 304 – Turned Underworld Jutsu

  • March 21, 2013
    Naruto Shippuden Episode 305 – Avenger

  • March 28, 2013
    Naruto Shippuden Episode 306 – The Eye of the Heart
The first three episodes are the Edo Sound Four Vs Kiba, Neji and Shikamaru.
The last episode is a Hyuuga clan filler, which I can guess is a classic Hinata fangirling episode the animators pulled out of nowhere, based on something that never happened to drag the innocent 12 year old anime fan kids to the dark side.

Fairy Tail Chapter 320 Review - LAXUUUUUUUS…..PUNCH!!!!!!!

Written by: Shiggins

You’ve got to love it when you see an uppercut!
After seeing Gajeel turn into psycho Iron-Shadow-Dragon-Of-Awesome-Doom-FTW and trudging through a frustrating story that frankly feels inferior and overly complicated right now, we get to finally see how the other fights are going.

Sadly, the first few pages of this chapter showed random shots of what’s happening over at Natsu’s area but we can accept that. For now.

Erza is too tired from fighting Kagura to properly take on Minerva and is now literally being tossed around like a rag doll, while Minerva is clearly having a great time as she prepares to publically execute our precious Titania.

Dear Readers. We Need Your Help.

First of all, we want to thank every one of you for supporting us up to this point. We have a small, but active, but still a small community so we wish to widen our audience more so more people can reach us. We appreciate that a lot of our friends have helped in building this blog, and we’d love it more if you’d spread the word about OtakuNuts.

We’re hoping to circulate reviews of all big 4 manga, in the future, that is: 1.Naruto 2.One Piece 3. Bleach and 4.Fairytail. However we cannot do this alone. We need your help. As you can see, we’re short on reviewers at the moment.  We’ve got the Naruto reviews covered by our author Eli, but still if you think that you do a really good job at it, hit us a message. We have no problem giving out two slots for Naruto reviewing or any other manga. Aside from the big fours, we don’t mind publishing reviews of other manga too.

Naruto 621 Review: "Run Forest Run"

Finally...the Greatest Shinobi Battle of all time has officially begun..or so we thought. So last chapter and this chapter, nothing new really..except for a few minor details. Did I say minor details? My bad.

I'm gonna try and take a weird approach to this weeks review. You'll have to forgive me. I think most of you have read these chapters attentively, so I'll just try and just point to the important points and the elements in the chapter that some may have missed or not.

Character Birthday Challenge ~ Konan

Favorite personality trait:
Her loyalty to Pain. She looked after him, did what he told her, etc. They’ve been through so many things together and especially Yahiko’s death had a lot to do with it, I think. The way she understood him and even trusted Naruto after Pain died because of them sharing the same dream, is just awesome.

Charachter Birthday Challenge ~ Yahiko

Favorite personality trait:
His determination to become a leader and his way of never giving up. He approached the Sannin for food, Jiraiya to train them, became the leader of the Akatsuki. He truly was a leader who protected Konan and Nagato, and even sacrificed his own life to save them.

Character Birthday Challenge ~ Tobirama

Favorite personality trait:
Understanding the Uchiha’s curse and making sure they are ‘safe’ from it, by creating the Konoha Military Police Force. This showed how much he cared and knew about the clans in the village.

Monday, February 18, 2013

Character Birthday Challenge ~ Suigetsu

Favorite personality trait:
His determination to collect all the swords of the Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Hidden Mist. Loved the way how he explained each and every sword to Jugo, and also the reason why he wants to collect all the swords.

Kingdom Hearts Cosplay- by Twinfools.

I'm pretty sure everyone knows Twinfools. He's a Canadian cosplayer of 23 years of age and is currently believed to be one of the most popular ones out there. I've chosen to feature his Kingdom Hearts cosplays because I fucking love all of them!

Oh, How Much I Love Sasuke

*Note: After my Hinata bashing article, it's only logical to balance the hate with this piece of faggottery*

I’m told that I need to calm the fuck down and for once spread some love and joy on OtakuNuts with my articles. So I decided that I would stop offending people who by the way, hugs fluffy animals and cry themselves to sleep every night because their lives are so dull that they need to hug fluffy animals and cry themselves to sleep every night. I’m being optimistic. I’m being zen. This is me being zen. And then I realized that this means that I can express my closeted love for Uchiha Sasuke all I want!

*I shall pause for the inevitable gasps*

It might come as a surprise for most of you to know that I love Sasuke to death. Uchiha Sasuke who was born to a clan full of highly adorable creatures, has always been a character whom I loved from the very depths of whatever that pumps blood to my cells.
He’s also one of the characters in the series whom I can relate to myself. Now, I’ll give you two major reasons why he and I are so similar.

Survived the Uchiha Massacre.

You can kiss my ass and lick my balls, but you can’t deny the fact that Sasuke survived the mass murder. And so did I. The fact that I’m breathing and typing this blog is enough proof for you to absorb that I in fact did survive the Uchiha massacre. Of course, I’ll never get over the reality that Itachi treated Sasuke like the princess he is and he failed to give me the same treatment.
But that’s beside the point.

As if the hair gel wasn’t enough, he had to wear a tiara to make me jealous.

Pikabellechu's Sasuke Cosplays!

Cosplay is always perfect when you're having fun and add a bit of humor in to it. This Sunday we have a hilarious cosplayer from United States, and I just love her Sasuke cosplays. 

Sasuke's new ride.

A Brief Review of the Manga 'Karakuri'- Kishimoto's First Work

Before the invention of Naruto, I always imagined Masashi Kishimoto to be chilling on his bean bag chair, still living with his mom and maybe working for some cheap otaku magazine or heck even working at McDonald’s.  Just a couple of years ago, during my exams I had decided that it was the perfect time to be unproductive and did a bit of irrelevant research and discovered Karakuri, which is said to be a one-shot manga Masashi Kishimoto submitted to Shueisha in 1995.

While Karakuri was his first publication as a manga artist, it had earned him the monthly “Hot Step Award” hosted by the Shonen Weekly Jump in 1996.

Karakuri literally means ‘mechanism’ and the plot revolves around an outbreak of a viral disease in Japan, to which the Ministry of Health and Welfare had developed a possible cure with the purpose to fight against the disease.

 However, some dipshits in the Ministry re-developed the cure and made a deal with some capitalists to be used as military purposes. The methodology, though, caused a horrible side effect on the human test subjects and made them all go ape-shit to the point that they became destructive weapons, and were no longer human. They are referred to as ‘Androits’. 

Upon the rising of this scandal, the Defense Agency gathered a group to fight against the Androits and named them Karakuri. The main lead of the manga is a boy named Kiru, who is a member of the Karakuri team. On that note, he also looks like a defected Sasuke Uchiha. Just see below.

Let's just thank the heavens that Kishi took some drawing lessons after this.

Character Birthday Challenge ~ Hiruzen

Favorite personality trait:
His undying faith in everyone, especially his students. He always believed in them, even when they went on the wrong path like Orochimaru.

Naruto 619 Review: "Stop! In the name of Love!"

You know you should. Just don't look into it's eyes. Oops that's probably the first thing you did.

I'm not even gonna lie, when I finished reading this chapter I expected a candid camera crew to jump out and tell me I've been pranked or something along those lines. I could not get past the notion that somehow I was redirected to some fanmade manga site and I was being punished for my contribution in blurring the line between canon and fanfiction with all the stuff I've written over the past two years or so.

I read and reread the chapter only to come to the conclusion that I was in a parallel universe and now a hostage to inter-dimensional traveling care bear demons who feed off the energy of the unsuspecting victims of their cruel psychological pranks. After sucking those poor souls dry, they proceed with further pranking out of a twisted sense of pleasure and this boys and girls is how more care bear evil demon babies are born.

Magi Cosplay by Yuiie.

Yuiie is one of my most favorites right now. She's a Spanish cosplayer who began cosplaying in October of 2011 and has been sewing her own cosplays ever since. She has cosplayed for many anime but Magi is my favorite, so here.

How I Came To Hate Hinata

Note: I like writing to controversial topics, so here. This article is purely opinionated and heavily biased. Also, you think this makes me an asshole? Let's see if I give a flying fuck about that.:)

We’ve been reading Naruto for years and we’ve tolerated a fair amount of things that we consider as achievements; courtesy to our lack of self-control, anger management issues, and minor carpal tunnel syndrome of our fuck-this-shit-we-want-to-be-a-seahorse drive. We’ve survived Obito becoming Tobi, Juubi’s metamorphosis to a half assed deformed rock, Gai’s embarrassing fillers, Kabuto’s hideous transformation to what we call a faggot, and also Gai’s embarrassing fillers.

To be fair, he has a horridly, disturbing giant butt.
