How many times has Ichigo gone from God Mode™ to Level 1 Newbie? In fact, same thing seems to have happened to the Straw Hats, but at least you can say a part of it is due to their being in different bodies. As far as Naruto goes, Kabuto forms former allies and their abilities out of his ***** apparently. At least that's what it looked like.

Fairy Tail was epic this week.

That is all.

I dunno. It was good, and it is certainly leading to epic chapters, but I don't believe this particular chapter is in itself epic.

Seeing Big Sister Erza needling on Gray was a big win for me, honestly. I've been arguing that that is how their relationship is for months on various fan boards, but it's nice to know I was reading them right.

Heh, how girly of you. I'd have thought you were to Natsu's epic manliness.

Shingeki no kyojin was also very good today, and managed to top the last chapter.

Naruto: Time Loop Paradox. Oddly enough, the same storyline is used in today's Thunderbolts. Except, you know ... better there. Guess another chapter to explain exactly what happened is to be expected. Still had strange Kabuto ***** With Orochimaru's Face Attacks.

Bleach: The Owlbear does some damage. Good to see that an explanation was put into place for the whole genocide thing earlier, as well as a mention to something brought up in the first few chapters of this long nightmare brought back into play. If I didn't know it was ending, I'd say this was a good sign that they're finally connecting storypoints. Guess they're trying to tie up everything. Also, Don Kanonji. Nothing to do with the story.

One Piece: Did exactly what I like of it: Off the freakin' wall absurd. Gomu gomu no Thank You Fire. Smiley: laugh

One Piece: Too bad Law doesn't know that Luffy already declared war against Big Mom.

Law's pretty much been set up as the Chessmaster of the new generation of pirates, so it wouldn't shock me at all if he knew, or at the very least suspected/expected it, considering both how smart he is, and how easy luffy is to read when it comes to that kind of stuff. I'm honestly wondering which of the yonkou law's after, though. I can't think he'd want to **** with blackbeard just yet, since Oda seems to be setting him up to be the new world saga's final badguy, and there's no way in **** law would be stupid enough to even suggest going against Shanks anywhere close to Luffy. That leaves Kaidou and Big Mom, one of which Luffy's developed a personal grudge against, and the other we know almost nothing about, other than that X-Drake wanted to **** him off, and that he got into a fight with Shanks just before the war of the best. I can totally see Luffy being fine with going against Kaidou, too, but my gut tells me Big Mom is law's target, because Kaidou is probably the smarter of the two, and Law seems like the type who would aim for the weakest of the yonkou first. This is all blatant speculation, though.

As for naruto and bleach, I'm to the point now where I'm reading mostly out of muscle memory. Naruto's in a sasuke story, which I could care less about, and bleach is... well... bleach.

That said, if you guys don't, you really ought to give toriko a try, I ******* love it, and wish I got more love. Smiley: glare

I got around that initially by only reading/watching it when I was eating, or had just finished eating, and eventually I finally got numb to it. Now if only I could get that trick to work for the food network...

**** it, I remembered yesterday was New Comic Book Day, but I forget that includes manga again. Smiley: motz Though, after reading the regularly scheduled shlop, I'm not sure if I'm annoyed because I forgot yesterday, or if its because I remembered at all. Itachi explains the Infinite Loop Error no Jutsu, Ichigo finally finished his lunch and decided to act, and Nami continues being bounced from one body to the next. I foresee that as a running gag for the rest of the storyline. Oh, and Luffy is the kind of person on Facebook that accepts all Friend Requests, but that is hardly a secret.

And the entrance into the Witch's World of Soul Eater is through Loli Butts.

I can't start Toriko because between Marvel/DC comics and weekly manga, I'm trying to keep track of like a dozen different storylines and they're already starting to bleed together. Adding one more long *** book is just going to make it that much more difficult. Maybe once Bleach finally ends I'll replace it with Toriko.

After this and the rule 63 arc, I'm fairly certain Soul Eater is now being written by mashing together various fan fictions. I'm ok with this.

Eh, you could probably replace bleach with toriko now, and then after bleach is done, go back and finish it all in one go, and never have to touch it again. Saves you the hassle of dealing with the weekly wait between kubo's trolling, and the bi-monthly wait between actual story, and also lets you enjoy a series that is something like the amazing love child of all the good traits of One Piece and the Food Network, sans pirates, but with a dash of Dragon Ball Z, and just a pinch of Fist of the North Star.

Basic explanation of what I mean, for those who haven't looked at it at all:

The series revels in absurdity, taking itself about as seriously as One Piece, and only sort of sticks to the modern shounen plot structure; Toriko is basically the love child of Kenshiro and Son Goku, with Natsu's sense of smell (probably stronger) and Luffy's general disposition, but actually possessing a decent level of intelligence (Also he's ******* massive. 220cm/230kg; ~7'3", ~507lbs of muscle). Of course, he eats a metric ******** and the generic shounen hero black-hole stomach is used as a decent plot point, being a food based series and all (if he fasts, his body will start eating itself. The thing is that fasting for toriko is not eating for a few hours), and one of my personal favorite points of the series is that rather than "ki" or "power levels" or "mana" or whatever, they basically approximate how strong something is by how many calories using it burns. You know, sort of like how when normal people do ****, it burns calories. Of course, because this is shounen we're not talking thousands of calories per attack, we're talking thousands of kilocalories (his strongest attack so far used 1,000,000 kilocalories... Smiley: laugh). Toriko's job is basically, go around the world and find/fight/capture/mcguyver the rarest, most difficult to find (and most delicious) food ingredients.

Oh, and there's the other protagonist/toriko's sidekick/partner, Komatsu, the chef who travel's with Toriko, is a really perfect balance to toriko's outrageousness. Komatsu's the same age as Toriko, but is like... half toriko's size (155cm/51kg; ~5'1", ~112lbs), and aside from his astounding culinary skills and sometimes unbelievable luck (it's to the point that the other characters comment on it and occasionally use it to their advantage), he's 100% average joe with no fighting ability at all, gets scared ******** in situations that would normally scare someone ********* and though a whiney crybaby, is equally endearing for his passion towards respecting the ingredients he uses and making sure everything he cooks tastes as good as it possibly can. In a series full of outrageously powerful superhumans who get stronger when they eat delicious things, he's pretty much the only main character who doesn't have the series's mandated super power. Also, he's ******* hysterical, and has to play the straightman/saneman to pretty much everything absurd that goes on around him.

Imo, the series is phenomenal, and the storytelling, characters, humor, and even art style, are all significantly better than anything I've ever seen from Naruto or Bleach. Though I may also be biased because it managed to make vegetables sound delicious so effortlessly with a single item that I haven't stopped loving it since.

The second he said they could pick the number of monsters at each attempt, I knew someone was going to try to do all 100, but I was sooo not expecting Erza to do it Smiley: laugh

Spoiler free summary of this chapter: Erza single-handedly demonstrates a single, unspoken line to the rest of the guilds, as well as the world watching the tournament. "Fairy Tail is back, **************

Today's Toriko release was kind of disappointing since they used Kugi Punch filler for most of the comic. One thing I just noticed was that Komatsu's friend Takechan looks like Toriko, and the "Scum Beast" looks like Toriko's "Hunger". Not sure if that's intentional or if the mangaka ran out of designs.

Fairy Tail 285 English translation is delayed because Mangastream is a bit understaffed at the moment, apparently.

My my, you should see all the whining on the comments page. Smiley: lol
