There comes a point in many stories or arcs where the hero hits rock bottom. Where things are at their absolute bleakest. As of this chapter, I think I can say that Edens Zero has become the rock. Rock, meet bottom.
When I heard that Paramount was making a Sonic the Hedgehog movie, I thought it was a terrible idea. Then I saw what they made Sonic look like, I lost it like the rest of the Internet. Thankfully, the studio made the right call, delayed the movie to fix their mistake, and released it this week. Now, what once seemed destined to be a failure is the highest grossing film based on a video game in history.
At twelve chapters and still going, this flashback to the life of Oden Kozuki may be one of the longest in One Piece history. However, it would seem that Oda’s getting ready to end this story and bring us back to the present day. In the manga’s defense, though, Oden’s set to go out in a very heroic manner. All while being boiled alive, no less.
Ahh, the cultural festival, a staple of the Japanese educational system. It also happens to be among the things that I wish we did in the US. Every year, schools in Japan have open day festivals where people come to play games, eat, and have fun. And even though its a school dedicated to training heroes, U.A. High is no exception to this common trope of anime. That’s right: the next arc of My Hero Academia is a school festival!
After reading fanfics for a while, I’ve realized that nothing grinds my gears more than seeing fan stories be hindered by poor grammar and spelling. Then when I found this one that combined the premise behind Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 with Star vs. the Forces of Evil, something in me made me compelled to step in and do something to help with its grammar and spelling problems.
In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d celebrate by looking back at some of the great romances I’ve witnessed over the years. Thus, here are my favorite ships in animation.
Ever since Star vs The Forces of Evil ended, I’ve been reading a lot of fanfics about the show. Some have dealt with alternate versions of the cast,. Others have picked up where the show left off. However, there’s one fanfic whose concept has stood out among the others. That concept being “what if Star and the others were to see their future? How would they react?” This fanfic is essentially a reaction story in text form, all for averting the end in the show.
Well, if they weren’t before, then they certainly are now. The crew of Edens Zero has been backed into a corner.
A running gag throughout the Star fandom is the fact that Marco winds up having a bunch of different girls attracted to him. Thus, he’s the subject to heavy shipping in the fandom. Starco, Jarco, Janco, Markapoo, Kellco, Higgsco! The guy’s like a harem anime protagonist. So, in this next fan-fic, we run with that idea and see how far it can go.

Well, I think this may be my least favorite episode of the entire season of My Hero Academia. When we left off, Bakugo, Shoto, Camie, and Inasa had to rein in a bunch of problem elementary school students. When words failed to reach them, they resort to humanity’s other, time-honored solution: violence. Or so it looks like: in truth, they’re just trying to reach those kids hearts.
Oh, and Midoriya and Aoyama end up bonding while Bakugo and Endeavor own up to their short-comings.
When Gus and Willow tell her of Bonesboro’s annual Covention, where students can learn all about the Covens they can join, she begs Eda to go. They end up going, and we get another piece to the puzzles of Eda’s past and the world of the Boiling Isles.
Normally I have some sort of introduction for these manga chapter reviews. Today, however, I have nothing. The reason why I have nothing is because I’m stumped at the name of the latest chapter of Edens Zero: “60-Day Commemorative Coin”. What kind of title is that, Mashima?
Another Super Bowl’s come and gone, and while I’m happy to see the Kansas City Chiefs win, I’m going to be honest. I never watch the Super Bowl for the game unless its my home team: it’s all about the ads. This year saw some really great ones, and some not so great ones (the nerve of Trump and Bloomberg). So, without further ado, here are my picks for favorite ads for Super Bowl LIV.
Every now and then, they’ve got to deal with the quieter moments. In this case, we see Bakugo, Shoto, and some students from Shiketsu High take their remedial classes for their provisional liscences. Their first lesson: winning the hearts and minds of the people. By people, I mean a bunch of schoolkids.
One Piece Chapter 970 Review/Recap The more we’ve seen of this flashback, the more I’ve been wondering something: how did Kaido beat Oden Kozuki? Oden was probably one of the … Continue Reading So that’s How Oden Lost!
