One Piece Chapter 1014 Cover Page

Round Two Goes to Kaido, But Luffy’s Not Out!

At this point, I think that we should be expecting for Eichiro Oda to take breaks in between chapters of One Piece. It may be a drag, but not even his work is worth sacrificing his physical and mental health. In addition, these breaks help to build up suspense whenever we get an important chapter. For example, last chapter ended with LUFFY BEING THROWN OFF OF ONIGASHIMA BY KAIDO!!! WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED!?!? Sadly, we don’t know how Kaido beat Luffy for the second time, but that doesn’t make this chapter any less important. For a variety of reasons.

Star Wars: The Bad Batch Episode 5-Rampage of the Rancor

I Now Officially Love the Rancor!

Rancors. Fans of Star Wars will remember them as the giant, hulking beast that tried to eat Luke in Return of the Jedi. However, that was merely one example of these magnificent and deadly creatures. In the expanded lore of the franchise, the Rancor has been used from everything from loyal pet to beast of war. But did you know that when they’re young, they look absolutely adorable? I didn’t, but after the newest episode of The Bad Batch, I am now a fan of the Rancor!

Edens Zero Chapter 144 Cover Page

Welcome to the Mirror World, Homura!

I seem to recall a while back comparing some of the fights in Edens Zero to that of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. By that, I meant that they could follow rules that broke the fighting norms in the Shonen genre. Laguna being able to people into water if they cry? That is bizarre, no pun intended! However, I never expected that they would use the concept of the mirror world here. And Homura’s stuck right in the middle of it!

Amphibia Season 2 Episode 20-True Colors

Disney’s Darkest In Years! Amphibia Ends S2 On Highest Note

In the season finale to Amphibia, Anne and the others are finally able to return home. However, when Sasha and Grime reveal their plans, a series of revelations shatters the world of Amphibia like never before as things are changed forever.

Adventure Time: Distant Lands Together Again

Finn & Jake Are Together Again, Because You Can’t Stop A Great Bromance

There’s just something so good about getting back to basics in a story, isn’t there? At the start, Adventure Time was the show about Finn & Jake, two bros duking it up in a post-apocalyptic Earth. It was a simple premise! However, then it became this vast high-fantasy world where everyone could potentially be a great story to tell. As a result, Adventure Time became one of the best cartoons of all time! Ironically, this led it to focus less on the duo that we started with. Yet the third Distant Lands special changes all of that by putting the focus firmly on this beautiful bromance. Finn and Jake are together again, because not even the forces of life and death themselves can stop a bromance this good.

Shura Doesn’t Take Rejection Well In New Edens Zero

If you’ve followed Edens Zero for a long time, then you know that A big thing about Shiki is that he likes making friends. He wants to make as many friends as he can. But the end of the last chapter saw Shura offer to be his friend! And given how Shura’s a sucker for that line, we had every right to be worried. Fortunately, Shiki proves that he’s smart enough to know that a friendship with Shura is a bad one. Too bad Shura doesn’t take rejection well!

One Piece Chapter 1013 Cover Page

Did Big Mom Just Get Rid of Zeus!?!?

Well, if there was ever any doubt that Big Mom was still going to throttle the Straw Hats, then that’s gone straight out the window. Not only does Oda show us that she’s still the enemy, but that any chance at changing brought on by Otama is non-existent. In addition, she also proves how cold and unforgiving she is to poor Zeus, as she finally discards the poor Homie.

Edens Zero Chapter 142 Cover Page

An Epic Clash of Gravity! Shiki vs Shura Begins!

Golden Week in Japan is over, and that means we may now return to our regularly scheduled manga. In this case, it’s time for some more Edens Zero! The last chapter finally saw Shiki come face to face with the psychotic Shura. And despite Shura’s best efforts to intimidate him, Shiki is not backing down. For the sake of all robots in the Aoi Cosmos, Shiki’s going to win. Let the fight of Shiki vs Shura BEGIN!!!

One Piece Chapter 1012 Cover Page

Don’t Make Nami Mad. You Won’t Like it!

Welcome back to One Piece, everyone! The series was on break last week due to it being Golden Week in Japan, but now the show’s ready to continue. As you recall, last chapter ended with Big Mom unexpectedly attacking Ulti and Page One for the Beast Pirates destroying Leftover Town. On the surface, it seems like she’s on the Alliance’s side, but I said that this wasn’t likely. However, that’s not the big moment for this chapter. That honor falls to Nami, as she reminds us why angering her is one of the dumbest things you can ever do.

My Hero Academia S5 Episode 6 Cover Page

Okay, I Admit: The Joint Training Arc Is Awesome

Okay, I admit it. When the Joint Training Arc first started, I thought that it was a snooze fest. But then we saw got to see what the Hero Course is really capable of, and now I’m hooked on it. Last time we were here, the score was tied with one win for Class 1-A, and another for Class 1-B. And the Joint Training Arc continues to heat up! Or in this case, freeze up.

Star Wars: The Bad Batch Episode 2-Hunter and Omega

Epiosde 2, & Bad Batch is Already Banking on its Predecessor

Even though The Clone Wars show ended last year, The Bad Batch makes us feel like it never did. As we saw in the hour long premiere, The Bad Batch went out of its way to make it seem like a continuation of The Clone Wars. Some fans have even jokingly called it “The Clone Wars, Season 8.” I don’t think they’re wrong, either. Case in point, the second episode to The Bad Batch brings back a character that only longtime fans of The Clone Wars may remember.
