I've been meaning to read Hunter x Hunter, but somehow I never get around to it.

As a big fan of HxH I'd like to warn you that it starts off the worst it will ever be.

I geuss what I like about HxH is that while there are certain unrealities you have to accept about Togashi'd world--like, beyond it being a different planet and there being "magic" of sort that additionally a 12 year old could be be taken seriously as an adult or act the way he does. However, a lot of Togashi's world feel like he has it thought out, that even if I weren't reading it things would still be occurring in the background.

I'm really looking forward to some of these fights in Naruto.

Not too crazy about the Kages vs Madara, but Naruto vs Tobi should be good, and that pose Kabutimaru took in the last panel just screams "endgame boss" to me. I really hate Sasuke, but Itachi's kind of awesome, so it should at least keep things interesting.

Hopefully this hasn't already been posted since I only read about half of the 2nd to last and last pages, but it sounds like Bleach, in anime form anyway, may be about over.

That article says it ends at 366. For context, this week's episode was 364, and it was the endings of a lot of the Fullbringer fights.

Speaking of the Bleach anime, the VA for Kenpachi in episode 244 of the English dub (Patrick Seitz) doesn't have the same impact as David Lodge's version. I enjoy his work as Isshin Kurosaki, but after being used to David Lodge for so long the change is noticeable.

I'm both utterly shocked and at the same time, not even remotely surprised at the anime ending. Shocked because I hadn't read about it ending, and was figuring "Ok, kubo's being really slow with the latest manga chapters, so there's going to be some sort of epic length filler arc next", but at the same time "....he's released what? 4 chapters so far this year? it's like he's stopped caring at all if the anime totally overtakes him... and the entirety of the fullbringer arc felt like a final arc anyway... They're gonna gainax end the anime" but they didn't do that, at least. Was a pretty decent ending, given what it could have been with kubo's trolling ability.

I wouldn't be shocked if they release "Bleach: The Final Arc" in anime form, or at the very least, OVAs (just dear god, don't make it into a movie, because there's no way kubo's gonna have the final arc be short enough to fit into a movie without dropping all sorts of important ****) after the manga finishes, though.

Also, I want to see kyoraku's mother ******* bankai, and I won't have closure until I do.

I wouldn't say nothing. Almost nothing, yes. but it was revealed that, apparently, the first squad's lieutenant, chojiro, mastered his bankai before even kyoraku and ukitake, and had every qualification to be a captain. The fight he died in was the first time he used his bankai, though, because he refused to show it to anyone (like ikkaku, but with more self control). Of course, this also raises a rather glaring question of how the **** did ichigo punch this guy out way back in the save-rukia arc... And also adds to Kubo ******* trolling us because god dammit, I want to see his bankai now...

Well, we may yet get to see his bankai. From the sound of it, these enemies steal bankai from shinigami and wield them for themselves. Whoever defeated Chojiro can probably use his bankai now.

That, and the companies that provide "official" translations usually butcher ****, change ****, and leave out otherwise important subtle nuances because they don't think the English audience would appreciate simply leaving certain things in and explaining them with footnotes, even though most of us actually prefer it that way...

After Bacchus bet, it was certain he'd win, but he got to win in a fairly entertaining take on the bruiser fight.

Of course this begs the question "doujin when?"

Well, it was obvious Elfman was going to win, if only because if he'd lost then Fairy Tail Team A would have been eliminated and they can stretch this storyline much longer. Even so, that was a great way and well thought out method for him to win.

I also want Itagaki to fight Ippo, damnit.

Elfman; teaching us how to properly take it LIKE A MAN!

It also had a pretty decent set up with both winning and losing being predictable; Obviously elfman wanted to win to keep bacchus away from his sisters, but bacchus is on the same level of strength as Erza, if not higher. I honestly expected them to draw, lol.

This just in: Audience left rubbing forehead muttering "duh" at newest Bleach chapter. Also, Itachi and Kabuto have an Emo-Off to try the lull the audience into a false sense of interest. In One Piece, Nami and Sanji trade minds, obvious hilarity ensues. One panel judged funnier than all of the "comedic" attempts in Bleach combined. All this and more on the 11 o'clock News.

Yamamoto is ****** [i]*********** Sanji -> Nami -> Franky -> Chopper -> Sanji = hilarity, I love seeing "chopper" acting like franky when he's in serious hardass mode. Also Smoker and Tashigi switched bodies. Smoker with a big ol' cigar in Tashigi's body is probably one of the funniest things I've ever seen.

Also, this week in Reborn!... Team Reborn and Team Verde tag team the vindice they're fighting and seem to completely annihilate them in one gigantic combined attack that we all know wouldn't actually work. They managed to... blow their cloaks and hats away, revealing the actual appearance of vindice members for the first time. Apparently they're (possibly failed, like lal) Arcobaleno zombies. Or something.

I can haz fairy tail nao plx?

Nope, time skip a decade or so with Yoh's kid, Hana. Shaman King: Flowers

The first chapter makes it appear like it's going to be a lengthy read. Eventually. It's a first chapter, though. So you can pretty much guess it's just introductory.

The fact that Hana's future wife looks a lot like Anna is giving me that "Family Bonding" vibe.

The first chapter has been out for a few months. I guess it was a preview chapter since they haven't released any new chapters since then. Will they actually be starting the series now? I've been really looking forward to it continuing.

For the record, Bleach, Naruto, and One Piece were boring this week. One Introduction of BigBadoftheWeek, one continuation of origin story that I'm willing to bet no one really cares about, and ... whatever it is Bleach does. Something about societal genocide and the Captain Commander being a douche to no one's surprise.

I admit, I hadn't actually looked at the date. I had just found a link ... somewhere, and it lead me there and as I'd not seen anything about it anywhere else I just kind of went in that direction. It was released year ago. I already want more. Smiley: crymore

Naruto: Continuation of Kabuto's backstory that like gaxey said, no one cares about except for kabuto fangirls, if those even exist.
Bleach: Nothing eventful. Mayuri got reaffirmed as a sociopath who fights for balance, and the final badguy of the series is heavily hinted at being someone of the same level of skill as Yamamoto, the thus far identified strongest character in the series. Shocking. We can already see how this will go down. Yamamoto will fight him and get killed, we probably won't get to see his bankai (*completionisticrage Smiley: glare*) and then Ichisue Kuromary (Marygo would be an insult to Merrygo, something I refuse to do) will get some sort of super powered final form that pushes his hollow powers up another level and beats this guy. Kubo'll probably kill off a couple of other big characters, too.
One Piece: Basically just a bit of an explanation of who this arc's bad guy is, and also Oda confirming what almost everyone suspected; the eleven supernovas made themselves into big players in the two year skip. My guess is most of them will end up fighting against luffy, with a couple teaming up with him. I could see maybe X-Drake doing that. Law's just gonna keep doing his own sh*t, Smiley: lol
Reborn!: Vindice sans robes = power up. Flan's gender brought into question via translators using she/her instead of he/him, which I thought was precedent up until now, since flan was pretty obviously a dude in the anime. Oh, and chrome shows up.

On a better note; Kurosh*tsuji/Black Butler came out too, and that was a pretty decent chapter, given that it's the second one in for the arc.

Now where the @#%^ is my Toriko and why the **** do the english subbers/translaters seem to hate the manga/anime so much? Smiley: motz

Also, apparently, Mangareader has a second site for US readers. or something. Looks exactly the same, but has a different name, and I can actually read jump manga.

Prediction for the end of Bleach: The final Big Bad is the Soul King him/her/itself, and the entire series was just about the King training Ichigo to be the replacement by putting him up against every major faction in that universe. Aizen got his orders directly from the Soul King, and was able to recruit Tosen with that information.


You also forgot to note that in this week's One Piece we learn that Smoker has a nice rack.

Aizen got his orders directly from the Soul King, and was able to recruit Tosen with that information.


Wasn't Aizen working to kill the Soul King, though? And hasn't the Soul King been referred to as "it"?

Of course, this is working off the completely ridiculous theory that Kubo is going to stick to what he's written in the past.

All part of the Soul King's plan, gotta make it look good to have Ichigo dedicate himself to the task at hand.

Kind of an eerie coincidence, but here's chapter one of Shaman King: Flowers. Chapter two should appear in two and a half years.
