Fairy Tail Chapter 325 Review - The Pumpking!

Written by: Shiggins

Damn! This was a fun week!

So first of all, we had Natsu and Future Rogue start their fight. F.Rogue seems to have gone quite mad and decides to kill Natsu too since he's in the way. Natsu disagrees with all of F.Rogue's decisions so far and promises to change the future in the way he wants, not F.Rogue's. This most likely involves punching someone, giving an emotional speech or two, then celebrating.

Character Birthday Challenge ~ Sakura

Favorite personality trait:
Her intelligence. She’s smart. There’s no way someone can deny that. Observation and analyzing help her through a lot of situations, and these skills only improved during her training with Tsunade.
Favorite relationship:
Ino. I know they see each other more as rivals than friends, but they have a strong bond nonetheless. Ino helped Sakura when she was being bullied and made her more confident about herself. Even now they still try to outdo the other in everything, like Ino didn’t like it when Sakura became her superior while training under Tsunade, and Sakura loved it. But aside this rivalry, they know they can always count on each other.

Bleach 531 Review – “Dark of the Bleeding Moon”

Bleach 531 Review – “Dark of the Bleeding Moon”
Written by: ClayDragon

And we’re back to the action!

Except not really. We see the Vasto Lorde rush at Isshin and they exchange a few blows, before we switch to Aizen, Gin and Kaname watching the fight back at the Soul Society. After Aizen says he wants to see the fight up close, the story moves back to the Ishida household, where Masaki senses both Isshin’s and the Vasto Lorde’s spiritual pressure.

Fairy Tail Chapter 324 Review - I'm A Good Guy, I Swear!

Future Rogue has a good goal, he just doesn't know how to do it!

So Future Rogue has arrived and answered the biggest question we all had: Why is he here? His answer: I want to save the future! Well isn't that nice of him? He's here to do the exact same thing the other time traveler  Future Lucy, came here to do. His methods however are a little extreme, as it turns out he came here to kill the one who caused the Eclipse project to remain closed.

You jinxed it, morons!
And unlike almost every other character who makes this vow, Future Rogue doesn't mess around. He screams out the name of the one he blames, then sends a dark sword of shadow at them. Guess who?

Character Birthday Challenge ~ Ibiki

 Favorite personality trait:
His belief in pain. I know this is sadistic, but in one or another way it’s true what he says. Through pain, people become equals. You’re only able to understand someone when you’ve experienced the same things. Even though he uses this opinion to torture people and to get information out of them.
Favorite relationship:
There hasn’t been shown an actual relationship with someone. Except for Idate, but that’s anime-only. But I love the fact that he has a little brother.

Naruto 624 Review: "What Is Love? Baby Don't Hurt Me! No More!"

What is love?

Baby, don't hurt me
Don't hurt me no more

Baby, don't hurt me
Don't hurt me no more

What is love?

Yeah, yeah

(Ooh, ooh)

I don't know why you're not there.
I give you my love, but you don't care
So what is right?
And what is wrong?
Gimme a sign

Character Birthday Challenge ~ Kisame

Favorite personality trait:
His love to murder. It showed how much he loved to fight and wanted to defeat his opponents. Too bad he never really got the chance to do so, because of Itachi, but you could see how much he wanted to finish them off.
Favorite relationship:
Itachi, of course. I love the way they respected each other and how well they knew the other’s skills. Even though he’s aware of his own skills, he knows Itachi is stronger and could defeat highly skilled opponents, like Jiraiya. This shows how much he respected him, as a partner and a friend.

Fairy Tail Chapter 323 Review - The Corridor of Hell!!!!!

Written by: Shiggins

As if this Eclipse project wasn't confusing enough!

We start off with Fairy Tail being happy and proud, while the rest of the contestants and the audience are shocked that they won without losing anyone. Then Sting and Lector stand up and ask the question no-one has asked yet, "Where is Natsu?".

That's Not What Your Mum Said Last Night!
Back at the corridor, which is getting to be the most boring and pointless plot point of the entire series, Natsu and the gang are still fighting random soldiers and those executioners. Just when it seems like they've run out of magic, they are saved! Right? ...We don't know because it was a shadow that seems to have eaten all of the baddies.

Brief History of the Shinobi World Before Konoha [Part 1]

Written by: Sexy Micha

*Note: This was originally written for and there's a high chance that you might've seen this article elsewhere. That is because after it was posted on LN, a lot of third rated sites stole my articles, but that's not something new.*

  Rikudou Sennin

Rikudo Sennin was said to have been a travelling monk which of course, itself says so much about his hardcore-ness. He is a man (which is one of the few things we’re all very sure about him) whose face which hasn’t been confirmed yet. He was the first person to have had discovered ninjutsu and defeated the Ten Tails(Juubi)  and sealed it inside himself, which by the way is said to be so powerful it makes Kurama look like Ms.TonTon.  
For certain, this guy must be really powerful.  Why wouldn’t he be? He possesses the powerful dojutsu; the Rinnegan, and mastered the Wind Release, Earth release, Water Release, Lightening Release, Fire Release, Ying Release, Yang release, Ying-Yang release, and anything else that needs to be released.

Bleach 530 Review – “Dark of the Moon”

Bleach 530 Review – “Dark of the Moon”
Written by: ClayDragon

So much for getting some answers.

After the fun of last week’s chapter, we now move on to see Isshin arriving in the World of the Living, ready to investigate the disappearances of the Soul Reapers. Firstly, he meets up with two unnamed Soul Reapers who let him know that rainy days are somehow dangerous.  After a short conversation, they split up, with Isshin going alone.

The action then moves to the Ishida household, where we see that Uryu’s grandmother (Ryuuken’s mother) is not the most pleasant of individuals, and that Masaki is pretty much identical (personality-wise, at least) to Orihime.

Character Birthday Challenge ~ Tenten

Favorite personality trait:
Her belief in female shinobi. Her first goal was to become a medical-nin like Tsunade, but that didn’t work out. She then started developing her own fighting style and hoped she would become a legendary kunoichi one day.
Favorite relationship:
Her team-mates. I know I wouldn’t be able to stick around Lee and Guy a long time, so I think it’s amazing she’s able to do so. I love the way she handles their ‘power of youth’, or whatever it is they say. And of course there’s Neji too. I think it's awesome that she helps him with his training and holds great respect for him, even when his opinion on female shinobi differs (or differed) from hers.

Fairy Tail Chapter 322 Review - Victory Achieved!!!

The Grand Games have officially been won!

We've had Gajeel defeat Rogue, then Laxus defeat Jura. This week we finished off with Gray and Juvia fighting beside each other against Lyon and Cheria. The stripper and the water-girl used unison raid to take down their opponents, with Cheria too fascinated to fight against the attack. With this final attack, Lamia Scale is defeated and ends up in third place.

We're Blasting Off Again!!!!
Erza brought out a new armor this week and used it to defeat Minerva and her super-ultra-magic. According to Levy and a random book, this new armor, which is known as The Armor of Nakagami, no one has worn it in over 10 years and it's sword is invincible and can break magic. Personally, this part actually annoyed me because it felt like Mashima was unsure how to finish this fight and created something random and, to be honest, predictable so he could end this fight. If it had at least been mentioned various times by someone, I'd be more forgiving.

Character Birthday Challenge ~ Ebisu

Favorite personality trait:
His intelligence. The way he explained the use of chakra to Naruto, was just amazing. It shows how skilled he is. Which also explains why he’s a tokubetsu ninja.
Favorite relationship:
Konohamaru. Eventhough he always gets into trouble himself because of Konohamaru, he keeps trying to prevent him from doing or saying anything stupid.

Japanese Manga Cafe'

Written by: Micha

It’s not Japan if they’re not adapting the ridiculous to convenience. They will invent the most unusual, unpredictable and the most bizarre of everything in the name of convenience and still be able to get away with it. Why? Simply, because it’s Japan.

The above Japanese invention of “being serious about staying dry” is something that went viral over internet and it went so viral that it’s currently giving Lady Gaga ideas for her new songs. And it’s not just this. They invented ways to let men breastfeed babies, a solar bra to charge electric devices, and a toilet paper helmet glued on top of your head for when you’re sick. And meanwhile the world is going “WTF” on these inventions, the Japanese consider them nothing outside of the norm.

But what I’m about to show you right now is something that has only existed in my otaku wet dreams. Behold, the Manga Café!

Bleach 529 Review - "The Rudiments"

Bleach 529 Review – “The Rudiments”
Written by: ClayDragon

At last, we’re getting some answers.

First though, we get to see Ouetsu talking to Renji, and telling him that no one in the history of the Soul Society has been able to awaken their Zanpakuto without getting the basic model made for them by Ouetsu, meaning that Ichigo has once again done the impossible.

Fairy Tail Chapter 321 Review - Copycat!!

Well this week was intense!

We got to see our very own Laxus face off against Jura in an epic match, both of them smacking each other with different moves and powers. Laxus and Jura have always been two of the toughest guys out there, with a penchant for having quick, brutal fights that are always impressive.

Meanwhile, Erza seems like she's finally going to take Minerva as she shows how to cut a bitch. And she then activates Second Origin, finally bringing out a fresh new armor.

Gray and Juvia are battered and look ready to be defeated but Gray insists that they can win this through teamwork as he holds her hand to help her back up so they can beat up a guy in love and a little girl. Awww.

Eventually, much to everyone's surprise, Laxus defeats Jura in an epic punch after quoting Natsu, thus putting Fairy Tail in the lead for first place!

I Hate It When I Can't Think Of My Own Catchphrase Too!
