Fairy Tail 100 Years Chapters 120 to 123 Review

Retconning while naked is how true bonds are made.

You were probably wondering why this review took so long to happen. Usually I try to wait for two or three chapters before publishing one, but I didn't want the entire review to be bitching about Selene's personality change yet again, so I waited until something unique happened. Or at the very least, something other than Selene pretending she was good all along. So here's the review you were waiting for all along, with the usual bitching reduced to save time.

Sequels. Always doing the same thing but new.

Every Movie I Enjoyed in 2022

Watch out, it's an article!

2022 was a wild ride, and it's time to celebrate by talking about every single movie I've loved to watch this year. I went a lot in 2022, needing a good source of escapism, and there was quite a range throughout. I saw horrors, comedies, cartoons, and more. So take a look at my best films of the year and check them out for yourself. And by the way, this list is in no order whatsoever. Enjoy!

Oh and I missed Banshees of Inisherin... so uh... yeah, that's not on here. Sorry. Looks great though. Can't wait to finally see it... ahem.

Fairy Tail 100 Years Quest Chapters 115 to 119 Review

If you've been following me long enough, you'll know I've always been a fan of Gajevy. So you can bet these chapter covers have made me happy, even if the treatment for Gajeel was far below what he deserves. As for God Serena... damn I wanted to believe. Anyway, enough of the opening paragraph. Let's focus on today's review.

She's laughing at me for the times I said I would get back to writing and then didn't... it was a lot of times, guys. I'm sorry. I had a tiring month.

Mission: Yozakura Family - Kengo should be an Icon

Cat go wrong with Kengo!

I've been wanting to write about Mission: Yozakura Family for aaaaages, but I couldn't think up a good topic other than "Why MYF deserves an anime" and then listing it's best qualities. A fine article to make, but pretty predictable and has been done before, no doubt. So here we are, talking about one of the younger members and how awesome he is! Oh and if this doesn't convince you to read this manga, or demand an anime, nothing will. Except maybe the action scenes or the other characters or the art style or...

Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero Review

Super-Fun Super-Heroes!

Can we all agree that adding that second "Super" was a terrible idea? It was a perfect pun to just call it "Dragon Ball Super: Hero", but here we are from the same people that gave us Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan. Luckily, that's probably the biggest issue I had with this film because damn it's a lot of fun!

Note: Full SPOILERS ahead.

Fairy Tail 100 Years Quest Chapters 112 to 114 Review

Can I ever trust again?

I think the trope of cliff-hangers and gut-punches from manga over the years has made me too cynical. A character dies, I refuse to believe it's permanent. A villain is a woman in Fairy Tail, I refuse to believe she'll be bad forever no matter what she does. That last one is a new one because I officially raise my hands and scoff at the contrived nonsense of Selene in this review. Oh and there's some Gray stuff too, but that's as tacked on as my mention of him in this paragraph.

If this is true, maybe my Yuri theory will finally be given the validation it deserves.

Fairy Tail 100 Years Quest Chapters 109 to 111 Review

Shock and aww.

Laxus zaps people, Natsu punches people, Suzaku swords people. Everyone has fun, I write a review with some nitpicking that even I cringed at but I hope you all enjoy it anyway. I hope everyone is enjoying their summer, and I hope you're enjoying Fairy Tail like I am, if not more so! Read, laugh, read more, share, like, subscribe, ring the bell, give me your credit card number, donate to my Patreon, write my name in smoke signals... whatever you want, as long as you enjoy!

See Natsu. He's speaking a foreign language, and his power move still makes more sense than you calling your flaming punch "Iron Fist".

Lightyear - Prioritising Themes over Entertainment

To infinity and... the same place as before.

So I saw Lightyear. I had to, I grew up with the Toy Story franchise and I love Chris Evans, as well as the original cartoon series Buzz Lightyear of Star Command that ran for 62 episodes and one badass TV movie, so this film should have been an instant win for me. And while the film certainly isn't bad, it might be the most disappointing film of 2022 so far.

Note: Major SPOILERS for Lightyear.

Cameos: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly Sonic

Didn't see that one coming.

Are cameos fun? Or are they a sign of a lack of creativity and cheap attempts to get crowds cheering? Well frankly, I think both are possible. Cameos aren't anything new, it's just people acting like they are and then getting unreasonably angry over them because Marvel have been doing it a lot more recently. We've all seen great cameos and terrible cameos, but what makes them what they are? Well, I decided to list some of the best, worst and ugliest ones around to give some general ideas of what I think makes a cameo work and what doesn't. So even if your specific favourite or least favourite isn't here, chances are the reasoning behind them will show up. And let me know some cameos that stand out to you in the comments below!

Fairy Tail 100 Years Quest Chapters 106, 107 and 108 Review

Are you a cat person or a Dogramag person?

Okay, I have a bunch of stuff to get sorted and deal with so let's get into this one and have it be a fun read so I can get back to... procrastinating and panicking instead of actually doing them. Ha ha, adulting is fun! Anyway, we got dragons! We got rocks! We got sexy men and punching children! What more could you ask for in a catch-up review from yours truly?

Those smiles... They liiiiike each other!
