Fairy Tail Chapter 479 Review - Who You Should Show the Greatest Respect to is...

Written by Shiggins


That is all that matters! There is nothing else as legendary as this changing of clothing for the emperor/villain/brother/dark knight/whatever. Go home, everyone! Zeref has gotten a new outfit and therefore, he has won. He is victorious. I don't even remember what else happened in this entire arc, let alone this chapter. It's all Zeref's new outfit! That is all that's in my head is right now!

(Also, see the bottom of the review for other news)

Zeref, honey. That is not how you wear a scarf.

Kasane Chapter 72 Review/Synopsis - Doom

Written by: Pomelote

Recommended reading: Kasane series recap and Chapter 71 recap

Got all that? No? Too bad, here we go!

Nogiku narrates. “Closer and closer to the kiss/exchange just before the final performance. And the final checkpoint to sink Saki/Kasane into hell…”

Kasane - Then to Now

Written by: Pomelote 

Before I post the chapter 72 recap, here’s a brief rundown of the major events in Kasane up to chapter 71, which I recapped last week. Massive spoilers, it goes without saying. These spoilers eat their own body weight in krill every day.

Fairy Tail Chapters 477 & 478 Review - Transport & Stealth

Written by Shiggins

Two unimpressive titles. Two entertaining chapters.

Chapter 477:

Another Spriggan 12 is down! Everyone is celebrating early, in a way that tells me they would be utterly slaughtered if we were watching Attack on Titan because celebrating DURING A WAR is a dumbass move for dummies of the ass variety. Every screenwriter knows that! Is there not one writer amongst you? ...Oh wait, no there isn't. They're all actually fighting!

One of the very few flaws of buying paperback over digital. Paperback doesn't include colour.

Digimon Adventure Tri Part 2: Determination Review - A Typical School Comedy... with Digimon

Written by Shiggins

Part 1 Review: CLICK HERE

After the events of Part 1, where the characters all reunited and joined forces to take on the new "Infected Digimon", we return almost immediately where we left off, with the gang going through character development and the Digimon themselves seeming to prove themselves to be more... in the way actually.

I would say "Spoiler alert" but this is the official poster for Part 2 so...
Note: This review is mostly SPOILER-FREE.

Kasane Chapter 71 Review/Synopsis - Poison Fang

Written by: Pomelote

Nogiku, watching the performance of MacBeth, remembers life from when she was trapped with only her (and Kasane’s) creepy, creepy father Atae for company. “It’s repugnant… these scraps of memory from those days…” she thinks to herself as she remembers. “My former father, to use me as a substitute for “Fuchi Sugeyo”, forced me to wear the accoutrements (clothes… jewellery… cosmetics…) of that woman.”

“Above everything else, he was obsessed,” Nogiku judges, showing a knack for understatement. In the flashback, he creepily gropes her face and tells her, “These lips, red like blood; that much more suits a woman. It won’t be anywhere in this world besides on you.”

Welcome to the Dollhouse

Hiya. I’m Pomelote. I'm new here. I’ll be the newest writer for Otakunuts until some fresher meat comes along. Anyway, for the time being, I’ll be translating and recapping the latest chapters of my current favourite series, Kasane. I hope you’ll like it as much as I do! 

A... typical scene from Kasane?

Fairy Tail Chapter 476 Review - Bid Farewell to the Mage Girls

Written by Shiggins

Predictable, yet satisfying.

To be honest, we knew what we were getting when we finished last week's chapter, and in many ways, that's disappointing. I love a good twist or unexpected situation added to the mix, but on the other hand, we got what we needed to get. So while this chapter isn't bad, it won't be remembered hugely either in the grand scheme that is Mashima-senpai.

Ultear: Ah finally... I've always wanted to do it to two little girls! ....Wait.

Top 10 Magi Characters

Written by Shiggins and Micha

This article is long overdue. I think it’s an indisputable fact that everyone needs a bit of Magi in their lives. If you don’t read Magi, you should. You’re clearly missing out on the brilliant characters this manga has to offer.  Please note that naturally this article is rife with spoilers. Read at your own risk. 

And as a shocking bonus, some of these entries are actually written by Otaku Nuts' founder Micha!

Fairy Tail Chapters 473, 474 & 475 Review - Red Lightning, In the Moment of Complete Silence & Dimaria Chronos Yesta

Written by Shiggins

Wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey bullshit.

Yes, if Doctor Who isn't providing enough confusing chaos under the guise of "time travel", then Fairy Tail will surely keep you covered with this... incredibly perplexing duo of chapters. Admittedly the second half of this review might break apart, but try to bare with my bullshit as I attempt to decipher what the FUCK they were talking about!

That camel is exactly how I reacted to this image too.
