Okay, people, I will be the first to admit that I had mixed feelings about this episode. Which is not what I wanted to have, since I had been waiting for this moment since Asuna joined the war. On the one hand, this took the moment I waited for since the start of the anime and made it less cool than in my mind. On the other, they closed out with one of the best fights in Alicization, and one that showed us a pretty metal way to die.
Shiki’s grandpa Ziggy came back to life, only to attack Shiki and the others. Then he claims that he no longer sees organics as worth being friends with. And with the newly arrived Edens One, he plans to conquer the cosmos and have machines rule over all. And I don’t buy it for a second! I don’t think Ziggy is evil, but only time will tell.
After seven long months of waiting, Sword Art Online: War of Underworld has returned at last. Thus, it’s time for me to finish what I started. I will review this series to the end, and it looks like that end is going to be epic. To recap where we left off: the bad guys tricked an army of American Players into logging in to Underworld. Asuna’s held them off with the Underworld residents, and then Sinon showed up to wipe the floor with them. However, none of that will matter if Gabriel gets Alice to the portal and out of Underworld. The real war of Underworld’s about to begin!
COVID-19 May have delayed this anime, but it can’t keep it down for long. After months of delay, SAO- War of Underworld returns. And I’m gonna cover it!
Well, people, we knew that this chapter was going to be a very emotional one. Have some tissues ready, just in case, because Shiki is going to need them before we’re done.
Okay, so it seems that the manga’s back on a bi-weekly release schedule. However, given how events are starting to move right now, I’m okay with that. But first, I want to bring up the notion of inherited will. The idea of someone taking up the dreams and ideals of another has been a big part of One Piece since day one. Now, the concept of inherited will may be what helps save Wano. Also, we learn a secret about Yamato.
As the manga reaches its 100th chapter, the heroes head off on their new quest. Meanwhile, we get our first look at the Edens One. It looks like a fish.
Edens Zero Chapter 99 Review/Recap It feels like it was only yesterday that Edens Zero began. Now here we are, on the cusp of a hundred chapters, and an anime … Continue Reading To a New Adventure! But Where’s Connor?
Folks, ever since the announcement came last week that Edens Zero would be getting an anime, I have been over the moon! Hiro Mashima’s an amazing mangaka, and his stories have always been able to put a smile on my face. What this means for my blog, though, is that I’ll have something new to write about when it comes out. For now, though, check out this awesome chapter.
Well, it’s official: One Piece is back on a weekly release schedule. It’s a good thing, too, because things are starting to heat up. Last week saw some powerful allies join the Alliance: Nekomamushi and his Minks, and Marco and Izo of the Whitebeard Pirates. However, no plan survives first contact with the enemy.
I cannot tell you how excited I am about this piece of news. I’ve been reading Edens Zero from the beginning, and I knew that it was perfect anime material. Given how successful the adaptation for Fairy Tail was, it would make less sense to not adapt it!
Let it be said here and now: Edens Zero should be standing among the great Shonen Manga out right now! This chapter sees the rise of the Demon King Shiki!
I’m not sure if I’ve said it already, but if the Alliance wants to have any chance of beating Kaido, Orochi, and Big Mom, they need to keep the element of surprise. So far, they’ve managed to do that, despite the actions of Luffy, Zoro, Kid, and Killer. This chapter, though, sees some complications arise. Fortunately, the chapter also sees some new allies join the fight.
Well, of all the events that I expected to happen in the fight against Drakken Joe, I don’t think that this was one of them. Also, I’m sorry that I didn’t post this sooner, but I’ve been busy with a lot of stuff. So let’s do this thing!
So, remember back in chapter 81 when we saw Drakken Joe show off what Ether Gear Overdrive is? That was already scary as it was. However, Mashima manages to take that and make Overdrive even more terrifying! Even Shiki’s going to need some help beating the Crime Lord. And as events in this chapter show, Weisz may end up being what helps them to win.
So, it looks like the final battle for the fate of Wano’s going to be a slow burn. Moreso than usual as Oda’s quarantining himself from COVID-19. It’s a shame, because I’m looking forward to seeing the Beast Pirates get what’s coming to them. However, this week’s chapter manages to give us a small appetizer as the party gets started. And all because Luffy wants some payback for the starving people of Wano.
