Weekly Shonen: Bleach 625, Naruto 700 + 2, One Piece 785

Hello,

Sorry, I really should have made this post sooner. I only have laziness to blame. Oh well.

Bleach

Best girl makes her triumphant return!

Best girl makes her triumphant return!

A fair bit of talking and some overly useless world mechanics that I couldn’t really be bothered to care about. Apart from Grimjow, we got to meet 3 other long forgotten characters. We got to meet 2 of the fullbringers and most importantly, best girl came back!

It is a pity she won’t win the near non-existant race for Ichigo’s heart, but well, it is good to see her at least.

That’s all I got to say, I am afraid.

Naruto

Hello Sasuke, you maybe be a lousy parent, but you are still pretty sexy~

Oh, so apparently there is an actual plot. I thought this was just going to be a chapter or two of Sarada meeting up with her dad, but apparently this short series will last roughly 3 months and it looks like it will involve some Uchiha-like people and Konoha’s conflict with them. Naruto is starting to take action as well. I guess I am looking forward to it, though to be honest, I don’t really mind slice of life chapters. I think 700 chapters of Naruto proper was basically enough.

Sarada just isn’t getting any easy answers is she? I have no idea why adults aren’t answering her reasonably simple questions, but this continues the trend of “misunderstandings breed dumb plot” that is oh so common.

Oh and the whole Chou-Chou going on an adventure because she couldn’t beleive she takes after her parents (which she totally does) was quite funny.

Yay, action time for Naruto.

Yay, action time for Naruto.

One Piece

OP Awakening

I hope it is over. Please, let it be over. This fight has gone on for long enough. I miss the rest of the crew. I am still guessing that the cage won’t stop with Doflamingo’s defeat and Zoro will have to do something about it. We learned two important things this chapter:

  1. Luffy’s Gear 4 has a time limit.
  2. Devil Fruits can be “awakened” and when they do they can start affecting the world around them. e.g. Doflamingo can turn everything around him to string.

Good ol Oda. Introducing a cool new powerup mechanism after Haki appears to have become nearly standardized. I am looking forward to seeing where this goes. Someone theorized that the Admirals were awakened and that is why Punk Hazard was in the state that it was. Would be cool to see how Luffy could use this power.

Please be over!

Please be over!
