My Hero Academia, Smoldering Flames

My Hero…Slice of Life?

So, last episode of My Hero Academia saw the end to one of the biggest stories in the anime’s history. Overhaul loses the ability to use his Quirk, and Sir Nighteye died surrounded by All Might, Deku, LeMillion, and everyone else. What could one of the biggest shonen anime on the market do to top such an amazing arc? Apparently start a new one with a slice of life theme.

One Piece Chapter 969 Cover: Oden the Fool

Oden the Fool

I’m now ready for this flashback to be over. However, it would seem that Oda still has some more backstory to explain regarding Oden and the Nine Red Scabbards. Thus, we get to see how Oden went from being the one everyone hoped would save Wano into Oden the Fool.

Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts

Kipo is Like Fallout Meets Adventure Time!

I was browsing for new shows to watch on Netflix earlier this week, and I found “Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts”. Based on a webcomic of the same name, it’s a delightful mixture of Fallout and Adventure Time, and the titular Kipo fits right alongside female leads like Star Butterfly, Anne, and Luz. She’s awesome, and you should watch this show!

Mashima’s Reusing Another Trope of His

I’ve read most of Hiro Mashima’s works as a mangaka before. As a result, I think I can recognize a lot of recurring tropes his creations. Firstly, he likes doing a lot of fan service. However, there’s another trope that he’s used in most of his stories. What is it, you may ask? It’s where the main female lead has some big reveal about her past that will have an effect on the story going forward. I’m only bringing this up because that’s exactly what happens to Rebecca in this new chapter of Edens Zero.

The Boiling Isles of the Owl House

Being the Chosen One’s Overrated

I’ve seen a lot of great stories that revolve around a special Chosen One meant to fulfill an important destiny. I think, from a cultural perspective, they’re meant to make everyone feel special and capable of being a chosen one. However, the last few years of TV seem to be going in the opposite direction, acting like prophecies and chosen one’s are bunk. Now The Owl House is following that route in its second episode. An episode which, I may end, seemed like a step down from the premiere.

Oden’s Voyage Nears its End

Well, Roger, Oden, Rayleigh and everyone else did the impossible. They made it to the end of the Grand Line and learned the secrets of the world. However, this also means that Roger and Oden’s voyage must come to an end. As we reach the end of this momentous flashback in the latest chapter of One Piece, it’s time to brace for the end of Oden’s voyage.

Bright Future My Hero Academia

A Bright Future

Last episode, we saw Deku give one of the greatest beatdown’s in MHA history. Overhaul’s been defeated at last, and they managed to give Eri a bright future. Yet with Lemillion losing his Quirk and Nighteye at death’s door, it’s a bittersweet victory. Now Deku must deal with one of the hardest parts of being a hero: losing a comrade.
