Fairy Tail Chapter 417 and Side Story Review - Travelling Alone 2 and Natsu vs Mavis

Written by: Shiggins

Since Chapter 417 was a silent chapter, I'll combine it with the review of this side chapter.

I sometimes feel bad criticising Hiro Mashima's work since he does so much.

Bleach 612 Review – Dirty

Bleach 612 Review – Dirty
Written by: ClayDragon

So of course Bleach would take a month’s break as soon as I start reviewing it again.

At the Soul King’s Palace, we get to see a lovely shot of the corpses that Yhwach has left in his wake. He begins to speak to the Soul King, telling him that there is nowhere left for him to run, and that he is an imperfect God. He then stabs him through the chest as he says goodbye to him, and he addresses the Soul King as his father.

I was going to use a picture from this chapter instead of an earlier one, but then I realised that they're exactly the same, only from different angles.

Fairy Tail Zero Chapter 7 - Mavis, the Black Wizard

I hereby nominate this week "Zeref Fucking Us Up Week"!

With the huge bombshell he dropped on us in Chapter 416 (read the review below if you haven't already), Zeref dropped a different kind of bombshell on us in this prequel chapter which might not be as big but is definitely one to take a note of if you happen to have the time, and if you are preparing massive theories like everyone else probably is at this point and time. Oh and since it worked so well the last time I put nudity on the front of my review...

Hmm... I like that he's not hugely ripped... I'm not gay.

Fairy Tail Chapter 416 Review - Tartaros Arc Last Chapter

Written by Shiggins

I've decided. Tartaros Arc has officially won the number 1 spot of Best Fairy Tail Arc.

My top 3:
1. Tartaros
2. Grand Magic Games
3. Tenrou Island

Out of every arc in this series, I don't think any of them have ever left such an impact on the characters or the fans who read it. The amount of possibilities for this arc's ending was insane and we could have easily dissolved into another "everything back to normal" series of chapters, like with the GMG arc. Instead, a huge change has occured and although it's unlikely to last forever, it's still going to be memorable to say the least.

That's not Makarov. Hiro Mashima is speaking to us through Makarov.

Ouran Highschool Host Club - Why It's Not Perfect

Written by Shiggins

Originally, I was gonna do a One Piece article of this but that kinda got taken away from me. (I still got to contribute to it though so I'm happy there). With my weekend free due to having no games I'm interested in, not being arsed to do college work and having nobody on my Kill List for the moment, I got bored and did yet another binge-watch of my favourite shoujo series: Ouran Highschool Host Club.

I don't think I've ever met anybody who hates this series and for good reason. It's absolutely hilarious, heartfelt and silly with tons of likable characters and interactions that make it a wonder to behold. It's what I imagine a french fancy would look like if it became an anime... but it's got problems. So while thinking on these problems, I've decided to start this "Why It's Not Perfect" type of article where I'll just list all the flaws I have with it and you tell me in the comments if you agree or have any objections or tell me some I left out.

Before we list the flaws, let's just look at the perfection in this picture.

Nanatsu No Taizai Chapter 110 Review - Confession

Writen by: Axlorg

Another chapter came out this week so more Nanatsu no Taizai! Also I should get a cookie since one of my predictions came out half-true. Anyway's this chapter was more so romance and character progression rather than story progression. This time, it focuses on two main pairings and some minor ones.

To be honest, even though the title said 'Confession' I really didn't take it literally as a normal person would.

The Rolling Girls Episode #1: "The King of Rookies" Reaction

Written By: Platitude

    Well, I was browsing around the interwebs, checking out new shows in 2015, and saw a little snippet of information on a new series called The Rolling Girls, which is apparently animated by Wit Studios, the company that animated Attack on Titan. Intrigued, and realizing that the first episode of the series had just been released a mere two hours before I started writing this article, I quickly jumped into the show knowing almost nothing about the anime beyond the fact that it looked extraordinarily colorful and upbeat, something that attracts me to a lot of series. Plus, with the incentive of more of the same great animation seen in Attack on Titan, how could I say no? This was originally intended to be a blindfold anime viewing, but then I realized that it would pretty difficult to follow through and polish off the rest of the series, as that would take 26 weeks if you readers choose for me to do a complete review. Anyways, enjoy.

No, I don't understand what that slogan means.

Fairy Tail Chapter 415 Review - And it Shall Become Your Will to Live

Written by: Shiggins

.........Oh my god. My heart.

I recently told Claydragon that this Tartaros Arc was not designed to have a happy ending and by golly, I was right! With the Tartaros Arc officially ending next week, I wasn't sure what to expect because that seemed so close and I thought we'd have too many loose ends, mostly because of the dragons. I now realise that I am a naive fool and after seeing this review, I only have one real response...

I am Lucy right now. I need a Gray to cuddle!

Nanatsu No Taizai Chapter 109 Review - Earthquake

Written by: Axlorg

Well DAMN. That's how you do foreshadowing! I won't lie, this was letting information go and a good chapter! I have to admit, I didn't see it coming, and I probably shouldn't be acting this happy, but I have a spot in my heart for good foreshadowing. Bless you Suzuki! Not to mention we get some new antagonists that make the past antagonists look like they stole candy from a baby (Or in this case, a king). Anyway's lets start with the chapter.

I love villain's like these. He's smart enough not to risk his life and is evil enough to use someone else.

5 Reasons Why One Piece Should Go Retard Itself Out of Existence

Written By: Platitude & Shiggins

I knew it would come to this. My first attempt at writing a One Piece review kind of went up in flames and came down smoking, as I realized that my personal hatred for the series would morph what should be a fairly unbiased analysis of a manga into a prolonged hate speech. After a spending a period buried beneath other work, I returned to this idea with renewed perspective and... Basically turned the review into a hate rant. A very well-structured hate rant, but a hate rant nonetheless. So, enjoy this list of the many sins of One Piece.

Unless you are actually a One Piece fan. In which case, say hello to Mecha-Godzilla and Xenu for me, because you clearly don't exist. Oh, and feel free to express your new-found loathing of me in the comments. Come at me, bitches.

Fairy Tail Chapter 414 Review - Drops of Flame

Written by Shiggins

Well, it's time for Otakunuts first review of 2015 and FUCK!


Ooooh this one annoyed me and I think that's a first for big dark Zeref, whom has usually made me excited and giddy but today he has brought shame to his name with the harsh betrayal he represents and... I'm going a bit too far now. I'm not that pissed off actually but I am mad so let's get this going.

Can we please start being nicer to books now?

Top 10 Pokémon Video Game Characters

Top 10 Pokémon Video Game Characters
Written by: ClayDragon & Shiggins

Happy New Year, everyone! We decided to do something special for the New Year, and after wracking our brains we came up with something a little different for this Top 10. In this list, we’re going to be looking at the Top 10 Pokémon characters. There were only two (and a bit) rules for this list:
1: The character must be human.
2: This list will only look at characters in the main video game series.
2a: Player characters such as Brendan and May are excluded from this list.
Normally, we would include anime characters as well. But given the sheer number of characters in the anime (and the fact that Shiggins and I both stopped watching it a number of years ago), making an anime version of this list would take far too long. So read on, and enjoy your trip down nostalgia lane…

As is this the case with many of these lists, SPOILER ALERT. You have been warned.
