No ifs, ands, or buts about it: Disney animation was on absolute fire this weekend! First, we had Adam McArthur guest-starring on Big City Greens (complete with Marco’s hairstyle and mole.) We ended the night with an enchanting Grom Night with massive shipping fuel. But in between then was the main attraction, the moment we’ve all been waiting for: the Amphibia+Gravity Falls crossover episode! And it was everything fans of Gravity Falls could have wanted, and then some.

My fellow One Piece fans, I’ve been waiting for this day for almost four years now. It’s been a long and winding road for the Straw Hats to get to this moment, including some unwanted detours. Still, here we are, the moment when the war to take down Kaido and Big Mom begins! And as we see in this chapter, it’s apparent that Oda’s not pulling any punches. Wano descends into all-out war!
Did you guys know that Sword Art Online got a movie a few years ago? I’m not joking; there is, in fact, a Sword Art Online movie in subbed and dubbed format. Called Ordinal Scale, it took place in between the events of Seasons two and three of the anime, and is fully canon to the anime’s timeline. However, I never expected that it would play any factor in Alicization. Turns out I was wrong, because two of the characters from that film end up playing a small yet important role in this week’s episode.
By the way, the action this week is actually pretty good, and we see some of PoH’s twisted backstory.
Well, folks, it’s been a long time coming, but at last, the crew of Edens Zero is leaving Sakura Cosmos behind. Beyond them layers Outer Space, untold adventures, and most importantly, Mother. With Joe defeated and the Shining Stars assembled, the Edens Zero is ready for the last obstacle between them and Outer Space: Dragonfall! It’s going to take help from everyone if they want to get through the home of the dragons, but they’ve come too far now to lose. Dragonfall will be the start of their next journey!
If I had to choose the most interesting character on The Owl House, I wouldn’t choose Luz, King, or Eda. Instead, I’d choose Amity Blight. At first, we thought she was a condescending jerk. Then we learned that she was more complex than that. She puts a lot of pressure on herself, her older siblings can be a pain, and her “friends” are shallow as they come. The only real friend she had was Willow, yet she broke that off years ago. We had our theories as to why she ended her friendship with Willow, but it’s this episode that confirms them.
You know what I consider to be one of the staples to a great show? Is it the plot; the music; the action and drama? All of these are considered, but one factor that I feel gets overlooked is the relationships between characters. As a show progresses, we expect to new dynamics in the relationships between the characters as they grow and change. And in this week’s episode of Amphibia, two relationships that have not gotten much focus take center-stage in two delightful episodes.

Two weeks ago, we saw Oda deal out wild card after wild card in the war for Wano. First, Kaido reveals his plans to turn Wano into a Pirate Empire. Secondly, he seemingly kills Orochi and forces his men to join him or die. Thirdly, Nami and Carrot have been captured by Big Mom. Worst of all, though, Momonosuke is gonna be killed. Yet the Yonko remain unaware that the jaws of the Alliance are about to snap shut on them as Momonosuke lives up to the meaning of his name.
Thanks to the intervention of Elsie Crimson, Ziggy and the Edens One have retreated. That’s small comfort to Shiki and the Shining Stars. They now have to accept the fact that Shiki’s adopted grandpa’s now his worst enemy. However, what could have brought about this change following his resurrection? In this chapter, Elsie Crimson gives us some clues and explains her past with Ziggy.
One of the downsides to shows that focus on serialized elements is that episodes is that there’s less room for events that don’t seem to move the plot forward. However, I’ve come to realize that even these filler episodes serve a purpose. When a show’s finished its run, we’ll look back on these fun little episodes in a much better light. Case in point, this week’s episode of Amphibia did little to advance the plot forward. However, it did give us two fun short stories.
It may have taken some hard work on both her and Eda’s parts, but it’s finally paying off for Luz. At last, she’s going to be attending Hexside and learn how to be a witch. But when the educational system wants kids to stick to a single path, can Luz really manage to do that? Or is she going to have to shake things up?
You know that moment in a story where you think things can’t worsen, and then they do? Well, I’m sad to say that SAO has officially reached that point, both in terms of the plot and the pacing. This episode sees hope begin to give way to despair as the boogeyman of SAO returns: PoH.
All right, I will be the first to admit that I may be wrong. Ziggy’s face-heel turn may be genuine and not just an act to see if Shiki’s ready to make the journey to see Mother. It doesn’t matter, though. What matters now is that Ziggy’s trying to destroy Edens Zero. This chapter pits Zero against One in a clash of the Cosmos!
If you guys haven’t seen the new season of Amphibia yet, then you’re missing out on quality TV right now. It’s not like we can do much this summer, anyway. Having hit the ground running last week, the show maintains its momentum with meme-worthy faces. Not to mention, we see Anne doing what I’m now dubbing as “The Anne Dance.” If that blows up on Social Media, I coined it!
