Bleach 599 – Aaaaand a hole in the head means the Soul King’s dead?

Oh boy. Bleach chapter 599 was a real doozy. A doozy that had my eyes wide open like this.eye-openerDefinitely better than this week’s chapter of Naruto which was a total snoozefest (will get to that in a little bit).

Kuroshitsuji Chapter 97. Betrayal at the hands of the Queen of the buildup.

Now on to the chapter.

kuroshitsuji-5204905The poor poor dear. This chapter of Kuroshitsuji has quite a lot of betrayal and some unexpected surprises from the ultimate mangaka herself, Yana Tabaoso. With the boring chapter of Bleach and the uncharacteristic behaviour of Sasuke in Naruto, it was with joy in my heart that I realized that there was a new chapter of Kuroshitsuji for me to sink my teeth into and that was a relief. Whew! Now, what am I going to do for the next four weeks as I await a new chapter? I have no idea. Hopefully, by that time either Bleach or Naruto or both would have something interesting to tide me over :).

This chapter though was delightfully stunning. From the very first page with the words Innocence is beauty, Ignorance is death we already get a foreshadowing into what would happen in this chapter. Have I mentioned before that Yana is an artist with the mind of a storyteller and the heart of a poet?

Bleach Chapter 598: All hail the boredom chapter

Now on to the chapter

Honestly, like I said in the post’s title, this was one of the most boring Bleach chapters I have had the unpleasant pleasure of reading. It was so boring that this was my preferred position of choice throughout today’s reading Sherlock. Like honestly. Sherlock had nothing on me with how I kept dozing off throughout the chapter. And it’s so sad when you consider the fact that Kubo (Bleach’s Mangaka/writer/artist) has been keeping Bleach very interesting in the last couple of months; so interesting that it was what I read after Naruto pushed me to the wall. Today’s chapter however, I am sad to say, was not close to Naruto. And Naruto had its fault. Just check my previous post to see. It’s so sad.

So, why am I saying 598 is boring. It’s because of the action that DIDN’T happen. Nothing drove the plot. No character showed up to make things better. Everything was just bleh!

Be warned. Spoilers ahead.

*facepalm*

Sasuke Sasuke Sasuke. How the hell did you come to this? You went from this Sasuke_childadorable faced urchin in Naruto early early years to this crazy sasuke-crazy-face(check out the wide-eyed image of him several years later. Crazy right?) person you have now become. Add this now returned blood lust of yours (Check out the third image folks) Sasuke Crazyand we have a chapter that has everyone scratching their heads in confusion and growling in frustration whilst Masashi (our dearly beloved Naruto Mangaka/artist/writer for over 12 twelve years) chuckles in evil delight, fooling himself into thinking that yes he has made a logical choice.

Please note that from here there are spoilers galore. You have been warned.

Adding to my Anime Addiction: Shingeki no Kyojin and Hunter X Hunter 2011

Rurouni.Kenshin.full.143097I love love animes. I adore them. From the very first anime I ever watched: Rurouni Kenshin, popularly known as Samurai X, I’ve just kept on going. I’ve discovered a genre of entertainment that appeals to me, and keeps me coming back for more and that is part of what makes my life so complete :). Of course, I love my animes subbed (spoken in Japanese and subtitled in English) and not dubbed (spoken in English), but that’s a story for another day.  Anyway, I’m always interested in getting new anime recommendations to add to my collection. Whether they’re short like Deathnote, 07 Ghost, Soul Eater, Kaze no Stigma, etc or long like Naruto, Bleach, Kuroshitsuji, Fairytale, etc, I want them all. Of course, when I say animes, I include the manga with them, because I like watching the animes and reading the mangas alongside them. It sort of gives me a more complete story, and for animes like Bleach which have been discontinued, having the manga to read has been a lifesaver.

Anyway, Zee commented on my last anime/manga themed post and recommended that I try out Shingeki no Kyojin. So I did.

urlAnd so far, it is looking awesome. I’ve cried, I’ve laughed, I’ve screamed and I’ve lost sleep catching up with the series, and let me you this, that is one heck of a story. It’s different from the norm. This time around, humans are the prey and the titans are the ones that are eating them (yes. Eating. There is this scene in the first episode where a titan picks up Eren’s mother and bites her head off. Yup! His mouth opened, we saw teeth, we saw the mouth keep coming and then it closed over her head. We see the blood flying and all I can say is “bloody hell!”

shingeki_no_kyojin_fanart_by_chanlien-d6tpw3xIn typical anime fashion, there’s a ton of blood flying around, but so far, I haven’t seen any overt sexual references. But then again, I haven’t caught up on the anime yet. Got distracted when a colleague recommended another anime to me. Drumroll please.

 

 

 

b226f487ddc66c15f001aa8c98a2d393Enter Hunter X Hunter. At the moment, I’m catching up with the 2011 anime (which is the second anime) because that is the one that’s ongoing. The first anime which is also called Hunter X Hunter has since been cancelled, however the manga which also started circulating in 1998 is still ongoing, so the production company started the anime all over again, did an upgrade, stayed true to the manga and voila! Hunter X Hunter 2011 was born. So far, I’m on episode 7 (the anime is more than 160 episodes so I have a lot of catching up to do), and it’s captivating. We’re introduced to Gon, a 12 year old boy the main protagonist who wants to be a Hunter just like his father.

There are a ton of tests to take before taking the Hunter Exam and apparently, only 1 rookie in 3 has ever passed the exam (they’re that hard). However, there are tons of rookies with promise so far and this anime has sucked me in. Been watching it since yesterday evening and I only stopped to Skype with my best friend, sleep and write today’s posts. Now that I’m done, I’m off to Hunter X Hunter.

These two new animes are quickly moving upwards to becoming part of my all-time favourites. What are your favourite animes and are there any you could recommend that I can watch? Leave a comment below and let me know. Ja ne.

Okay, I love Yana. I adore her. She’s one of my favorite mangakas ever cuz she keeps changing things and each chapter has me going huh? Right now, she’s really close to kicking Tite Kubo off my number one spot. Considering that there were no new chapters of Bleach or Naruto released yesterday, well, it’s easier for Yana to maintain this elevated position. For those of you who believe Masashi and Kubo are the ultimate, well, :P.
