I thought that The Mandalorian brought Star Wars onto the road of redeeming itself at the divisiveness of the Sequel Trilogy. But Star Wars: Visions? Star Wars: Visions has taken the franchise to beautiful new heights the likes that it’s rarely ever been to. A collaboration between Disney and seven of the finest animation studios in Japan, this anthology series is pure art. In addition to serving as a love letter to an incredible franchise, Visions shows just what animation can do. It’s one of the best things that could’ve happened for Star Wars, and the fans agree. For the first time in years, the majority of the fans agree. It’s glorious!

So, last week, Hiro Mashima gave us one of the biggest examples of Stockholm Syndrome I’ve ever seen in my life. Laguna learned that his former comrade, Princess, got captured by Shura and horribly tortured. As a result of that, she developed severe Stockholm Syndrome and started serving the nutjob willingly. A nutjob who, by the way, just tortured Witch to near-death to piss off Shiki.
The life of a superhero can be a hard one. Superheroes can save a lot of lives and become respected and renowned the world over, but it can also destroy their chance at happiness.

Even decisions with good intentions can lead to tragic consequences. Now, we get to witness first-hand the tragic origins of Tenko Shimura, the future Shigaraki.

This week on Marvel What If…?, when the Zombie Apocalypse hits the universe, our only hope is…Spider-Man.
I have seen a lot of toxic relationships in the annals of fiction. Rick and Morty’s a twisted version of Doc and Marty. The Joker and Harley Quinn fills me with nothing but pity and revulsion. Name a Sith master and apprentice in Star Wars, and I’ll be 99.5% sure it’s bad. But this? What Mashima has created? This relationship is like the idea of Stockholm Syndrome and the feeling of pity had a baby!!!

azy. It’s actually Twice. I don’t know why, but I love Twice. His backstory and all the problems that he faces are just so sad that you can’t help but want to hug the guy. He’s not evil; he’s just been forced into villainy due to the world being out to get him. And that’s what makes this episode one of my favorite of the season. This week, we got to see Twice unleash his full power.
Wano, we’ve been getting more and more hints that Zoro has some sort of connection with the country. Then, last chapter revealed that he has a lot in common with the last Daimyo of Ringo, Ushimaru.

I have been waiting all season for My Hero Academia to get to this point in the anime: the Meta Liberation Arc, AKA My Villain Academia. While the heroes have spent the entire season training to get stronger, the League of Villains has been trying to stay afloat. Now, they’ve been called out to the revival party of the Meta Liberation Army. And as this episode proves, this revival party is going to be absolutely glorious!!
me, I’ve seen it become one of the high points of One Piece. From the larger-than-life story of Oden Kozuki and his epic end to the ongoing war against the Yonko, this arc has succeeded all my expectations. However, with the arc nearing its climax, it’s time for a few more surprises. Sanji and Zoro push their power beyond their previous limits, while Momo makes a choice that would make his Dad cry from sadness and pride. Kaido doesn’t stand a chance now.
