#278 Crona the Savior

Soul Eater chapter 112 : The Dark Side of the Moon IX [read here]

Second to last chapter already?

I was about to go on about how cheesy and confusing this last chapter was, but if you think about the rest of the series, there has never been a stable logic to anything.

So Maka’s goal was one: destroy Kishin, and two: save Crona.

Poor Crona. Her speech to Maka sure hit an emotional chord in me. Especially this scene:

SE 112

Dangit. Why can’t Sasuke be like this? He too, needs to understand the weight of his sins and realize he can’t just jump in and be the hero!

And from what I understand, Kishin absorbed the Book of Eibon for plot convenience. Crona also being able to use the Brew stored in the Book of Eigon also due to plot convenience. Ehh…?

And Kishin exploded and consumed the moon. I’m sad. I always loved the moon. I even have a key chain of the Soul Eater moon.

Now the people currently standing on the moon:

SE 112 0

Group hug for the end. D’aaawwwww. T_TSE 112 1

T_T

What a sport… Good sacrifices were made in this battle.

Next chapter is the end! I’ve enjoyed this series very much mostly due to their constant breaking of logic and reality. I loved the anime of this series much more due to the animation, but I feel like the manga is gives such high standards that the anime would never be able to stay at that level of quality of animation forever.

See you next chapter for the end!

#270 Things Are Not as Great as We Hoped

Naruto chapter 635 : A New Wind [read here]

Last week’s chapter I didn’t review was pretty good. Teamwork was at an all time high, Naruto’s wind and Sasuke’s fire merged, and Sakura shed a tear. Wait, Sakura shed a tear? Oh well. The point was that things were working perfectly.

This chapter, things have completely flipped. Why such a drastic change right after things were so epicly perfect? Sasuke just decided to be selfish again? I can talk about this all day, but I’m going to accept it and roll with it.

Sasuke is showing his true colors again. He obviously is using his former friends as a vehicle to put his plans into action. What I can guess is that he wants to destroy the world to create a new one, where he is the primary player in everything. He thinks he can fix everything! Sounds like someone after they’ve taken Intro to Econ class. I’ve forgotten how egotistical and self-centered he is. Thanks Kishimoto, for pulling this guy back into character. It’s about time.

Naruto 635 2Dat pouty face.

And Sai is Sakura’s voice of reason again. Last time was when he told her Naruto loved her. Maybe he should just live inside her head and help her make rational choices about her emotions.

Orochimaru says something about wind? I guess he also tried to make change in the world and hopes that Sasuke, I mean, he knows that Sasuke will make the change. Orochimaru doesn’t exactly know what the change is, but I guess gambling with the future is one of his mentioned “hobbies”.

Naruto 635 1

In other news, the Kages are alive. If you read my previous posts, I have complained about their absence multiple times.

In less important news, Orochimaru has a new babysitting job, to take care of Karin ans Suigetsu. I hate Karin so much.

Naruto 635 0OMG. BOTH OF YOU, JUST SHUTUP.

I almost forgot the last page!

Naruto 635 3Took me a while to understand what exactly is happening here, but I managed see: Kakashi and Obito stabbing each other in the chest. Obito sure has a lot of giant shurikens or is this the same one he stabbed Kakashi in the knee with many chapters ago?

Naruto 608From Naruto chapter 508
Shuriken to the knee… I love this scene

We will get an epic death fight with Obito and Kakashi next chapter. Well, unless Obito really is immortal. He already stabbed himself in the heart previously. But then he has those powers from a wood element which is part earth element. If Naruto world logic is still in play, lightning defeats earth, therefore Kakashi has also dealt a lot of damage to Obito as well. Maybe when Naruto said he and Sasuke were both going to die next time they meet was for Kakashi and Obito? Ooooh. Crafty. Obito and Kakashi were also present during that battle between Sasuke and Naruto. Well they met again and they are fighting to the death! Exciting! See you next chapter!

#267 Your Brains A-sploded

Fairy Tail chapter 334 : Sin and Sacrifice [read here]

So what exactly  was Ultear doing walking through the battlefield?  Is it just plot convenience since Jellal needed his ass saved before the two girls were going to tear him apart? I was pretty sure she was staring at Rogue thinking about to kill him!  Even after walking away from Jellal’s situation, she was still thinking about it. Well now we understand she’s all torn apart by her thoughts and is now a non-player in this battle. How many chapters will it take for her to get better? Hopefully it will only take a couple chapters.

Anyway!

FT 334 0Sting is such a troll. A heartwarming, funloving troll. :) Great Sting and Rogue bromance this chapter.

So let’s get to the important part. So it starts out with,

FT 334 1

And ends up,

FT 334 2

No words.

I was angry before, but now it’s just no words.

I don’t know why

or how

just…

Why… He didn’t even get to struggle for his life.

Fairy Tail series’ first death? Nobody usually dies in the story. Especially not the members of the guild itself. Pretty sure the Guild Master has been almost dead 3 times already. *sigh* He didn’t even get to struggle. Only 3 pages.

Just.

I’m done now.
