Naruto, Descendant of God. and hey, at least the Grape Plan in One Piece worked overall. The Soujiro wannabe is gonna need to imagine something a little more impressive than water cubes and holes in the ground if his fight with Kenpachi is gonna be interesting, or it's going to go straight to flashbacks.

Next up is three or four chapters dealing with the Kenpachi vs Kenpachi fight since no one ever dies in Bleach. Flamingo got decapitated, but since it wasn't Luffy he'll be fine. Naruto literally **** it.

Ippo's first knock down in since forever, which is more exciting than everything else combined. Usually he's just getting his **** handed to him, but this time he's actually hit the mat.

Rereading Eyeshield 21. Still good.

From what I've heard, Crunchy releases new stuff at a good pace, and decent translation. Just a cursory search of their page shows some stuff that's airing just now, so I'm estimating a few hours, maybe a day after it airs originally? I don't really have much experience with them myself, though.

Premium members get to view the episodes subtitle-less an hour after it airs in Japan, with subs appearing later that day. Free viewers only get to see the episodes a week after the original air date.

Just information I've heard in passing, but they're legitimately licensing the shows. I believe they absorbed some subbers from the fan subbing community, but I believe their subtitles are in-house.

As for worth it's worth it, from what I've seen they've steadily been improving the sight. Stream quality has gone up, selection has expanded beyond a few easy to grab popular shows. Subtitles are well done. I'd say it's worth your time to give them a look.

If all you watch is anime, then yes Crunchy Roll is worth it. They also have a pretty fat midlist catalog, so you can catch up on shows from several years ago in addition to getting the fresh things.

The folks who created the site struck a deal with the JP distribution companies for streaming licenses only. Smart people. When they get released to DVD/Blu-Ray a different company handles the distribution.

That was the only possible Shikai for Kenpachi. Nothing besides "just a bigger sword" is acceptable.

If anyone wants a free 48-hour pass to Crunchyroll, PM me. Members get a free pass to give out every month and I have 5 or 6 stored up.
On the PS3, I've never had an issue with the Crunchyroll app. I guess if you really binge watch it might become an issue, but I tend to watch 3-4 episodes of something at a time and works just fine.

Kenpachi dispelled that possibility from the outset, no?

Unreleased zanpakutous scale with the spirit power of the shinigami, and Kenpachi said his would be the size of a skyscraper if he didn't force it to stay small. But once they are released, they don't necessarily scale in size anymore.

Combine that with the fact that Kenpachi had never spoken to his sword before, and it would be surprising if it was released.

I swear when Kenpachi and Ichigo fought a long time ago in the first arc, when Ichigo was learning to "Talk to Zangestsu" or w/e. That Kenpachi said he took the sword from someone and it was just a tool, and he didn't need to learn its name. Ichigo said something about it screaming in pain or something while they fought.

Kenpachi then explained he has all the power he needs and wont rely the swords extra power or something. Then Ichigo won. I think that's what happened. They said all the captains swords would have been skyscrapers but it was kind of rude to show it off and they made them smaller, that's one reason Ichigos sword goes from huge to Small in bankai. Showing he has a ton of unrestrained power at first but later honed it into extreme speed.

I think that's what it was. I think, if what i remember is correct, that Kenpachi realized that the sword is an extension of his power, not its own power. I guess.

Hmmm, I think they added more to that scene in the anime. In the manga, he just says that his sword doesn't have a released form, but also that he didn't put a seal on it (because no seal could contain his spirit power), but that what you see is the true form of his sword.

But it seems pretty clear in the context of the arc that he's saying he doesn't have a shikai (since Ichigo's previous fights all centered around the meaning of names, shikai, etc.). And then Zangetsu tells Ichigo that Kenpachi can't hear his sword screaming in pain, because they're working against each other.

Isn't he blind now? Pretty sure Kakashi lost his right eye earlier in the war. Of course Narutus/Jesuto is just going to heal it for him.

Bit confused about the whole clone thing. Was DoFlamingo just hiding in the shadows and the puppet is what we were seeing the whole time? Did he actually attack the Thousand Sunny directly after Punk Hazard, or does he have stupid long range with the string?

Not unhappy with it and Yagi's art is much better then when the manga started. The foreshadowing for it has been there since the beginning so it's wasn't if she was going to reappear but how was it going to play out. The way the return was done here was much more reasonable then other mangas that have done it and it is very touching. If it plays out like everyone is expecting it the main plot will get wrapped up nicely and leaves it open to a spinoff or continuation on the mainland.

The movie follows the standard "Enemy shows up, enemy is overwhelming, good guys distract/power up/eventually win" formula. It felt more Dragonball than Dragonball Z if that makes any sense, and I liked it. Worth at least one watch, and then repeatedly watching the Bingo Dance.
