Visit Your Mommy, Dabi! (My Hero Academia 187)

rei00

I’m selling my story to TMZ

The Dabi=Todoroki theory is teased again. One of Shoto’s older brothers mentions Endeavors shitty treatment of Shoto, Mama Rei and one other but he decides not to talk further. No doubt he’s talking about the eldest Todoroki brother. Once again Hirokoshi is sidestepping any information regarding the first sibling. At this point is it even worth talking about this? Dabi is a Todoroki. I know it. You know it. Everyone in the fandom knows it. Let’s move on. Read More…

Bonney’s Ancestor is Kuma? (One Piece 908)

The World Building Arc is rolling along.

bonney01

I mean, come on! Miz Cracker deserves to be in the top four!

Let’s start with Jewelry Bonney, a pirate who snuck into the highest security place on the planet. Why? To save Kuma, it looks like. Why? Because he’s family? Okay, he’s family. Oda’s dropped enough breadcrumbs for us to guess that much. Bonney disguised herself as Queen Dowager, of Sorbet Kingdom. No makeup, just simply aged herself. If that’s not a big hint the real Dowager is related to Bonney, I don’t know what is. And, yeah, I assume there’s a real Dowager. Someone has to be running Sorbet and Bonney can’t do her pirate thing and rule a kingdom at the same time. Makes sense she asked her relative to say home while she went to the Reverie to try and save Kuma. Read More…

Where’s Cobra Commander? (My Hero Academia 186)

destro00

Before you ask, Yes. Tetsutetsu is my son.

Hawks is a laid back mofo but he gets the job done. Nice to see Destro and the quirk liberation ideology get mentioned. Has to be a lot of angry people in the world who can’t use their quirks. The price of freedom or government suppression, you decide.

Not much else happens. Endeavor pals around with Hawks who learn they’re some League shenanigans happening all over the country. Maybe. Either someone is spreading rumors or there are nomu factories all over the place. Think there’s one across my street. Would explain my new neighbor’s exposed brain. And, here I thought he was cosplaying, every day, for two months. Oh, well, live and learn. Read More…

Shanks Snitchin’ on Blackbeard? (One Piece 907)

shanks02

…but I’m a bit thirsty. Can I get a bottle of bourbon and some ice? Two bottles, if you got it.

This chapter had more meat than a male strip club. Rox? What’s that? Oda dropped some new lore on us that probably won’t be addressed for another five years at least. It sounded like Rox was an old pirate crew or alliance that had something to do with Big Mom and Kaido. Why now Oda? Why bring up the pre-Gol D. Roger era now? My guess, it has something to do with Shanks, or at least who Shanks wants to discuss with the Five Elders.

Before we get to that, can we sit in awe that Shanks, one of the four most powerful pirates on the planet, is sitting at World Government ground zero with the five people who rule over almost everything in the world? Soak it in. This is happening, folks.

Everyone still with me? Okay. How does Shank know the Five Elders? Well, the only reason that comes to mind is One Piece, the treasure, not the manga. That’d be weird. Shanks knows the truth about the world and so do the Five Elders. That must be their connection. Of course, it doesn’t explain how they first met and why they trust Shanks enough to meet with him, but I can assume is somehow/someway, the Five Elders probably met with most, if not all, of Roger’s crew to discuss One Piece and the truth about everything. Yeah, we’re getting a flashback about that one day. Maybe right before Shanks dies. Come on! You know it’s happening! Read More…

Hawks is a jerk. The End.

"Get Hard" - Los Angeles Premiere - Arrivals

Already planning to put Mirko in my next video

What else is there to say? Everyone’s having a good time at the Top 10 Hero Billboard Awards. Drake, the number one music billboard artist, was going to perform and rumors circulated they’ll have free pizza and ice cream at the afterparty. Fun!

But, here comes Hawks talking about…what the heck was he on about? Heroes need to think outside the box? They need to give better speeches? Seriously, what’s going on with Hawk? Guess I’ll chalk it up to A.D.D.

Let’s get to the juicy part. Hawks wants Endeavor to help him with some suspicious activity happening in his neck of the woods. And Hirokoshi didn’t waste time showing us it’s all legit. Shigaraki (guessing it’s him) is talking to a nomu, and it talks back! We got talking Nomu, kiddies. A talking, thinking nomu, yikes! That means the new nomu can go on missions alone. Hmm…I wonder where’s he’ll go? Read More…

Sacred Mary J. Blige (One Piece chapter 906)

If there’s one thing people love about One Piece is its world building and we’re getting a huge helping throughout the Reverie.

clone00

Vivi and Rebecca aren’t playing around

First things first, Team Luffy Allies have finally meet! Happy it was done early since we knew it was coming. Those Nami clones are taking over the world. We got Blue Name, Pink Nami, Big Nami and even Old Nami. I swear if Oda one day reveals all Nami clone are actually the result of DNA manipulation during the Void Century I’d lose my mind.

Batman Beyond Vol. 2 Rise of the Demon (Part Two)

Writers: Vita Ayala & Steve Orlando,  Pencils: Siya Oum, Inks: Dexter Vines, Colors: Tony Aviña

You’re perfect, you’re beautiful, you look like Linda Evangelista.

Filling out the volume is a story created by a guest team called Batwoman Beyond. There’s a Batgirl in the Beyond universe? Nice! I like the premise. Batgirl works in a tough part of town not even Batman frequents. Why? Wish someone in the story told me.

This takes place during the Rise of the Demon arc so yay for Max doing something other than waiting around and being worried. Commissioner Gordon is kidnapped and it’s up to Batgirl and Max to save her. Max, you need an alias, my friend. And, Gordon, are you the same Gordon from the regular arc because here you’re drawn more like older Barbara Gordon. But, I swear I thought the main story Barbara Gordon was her granddaughter. She looked middle age at the most. I’m confused.  Read More…

Batman Beyond Vol. 2 Rise of the Demon (Part One)

Writer: Dan Jurgens, Artist: Bernard Chang, Colorist: Marcelo Maiolo

bb03

Bruce is still waiting for Young Justice season three.

Let’s jump right in with the multiparter, Rise of the Demon. Following the events of volume one, Bruce Wayne is back and everyone’s happy. Looks like this volume is all about happiness and—oops! The League of Assassins are back and ready to assassinate…their own member, Curare? What the schway? Okay, sidebar, how does the League continue to exist? They’re always getting stomped by Batman or some other hero or infighting. Maybe save all that bloodthirsty dysfunction for Fortnite.

Rise of the Demon is a good story, but I liked the previous one more. I enjoyed Terry back in the game and Bruce reflecting on his life but I felt there’s too much inner dialogue in these comics. You always have to be in their head. It’s a general problem I have with western comics. You never escape the main character’s constant thinking. Not a fan of it, but that’s just me.

I did love Bruce in this arc. He’s not as cranky as he was in the cartoon. He trusts Terry more and feels like a mentor, not a boss. Terry’s dickhead moment (you’ll know when it happens) fits the story. Being Batman is like walking a tightrope and Terry doesn’t want to end up like Bruce and that’s understandable. Just don’t be an ass about it.

bb04

Like whether I’m in the mood for pizza or cookies. Maybe both. *giggle* Pookies.

My biggest issues are the facial expressions and Max and Matt. Everyone’s drawn in this bizarre blazed eyes half open way. A lot of the time it doesn’t match their words. Did this arc happen on April 20th? And poor Max and Matt had little to do this arc. Not every character can get proper screen time in every story, but I hope it’s not a sign of things to come. And, they did do some stuff so it’s not a total shutout.

bb04

Bruce’s first hug since The Muppet Show went off the air.

The Rise of the Demon arc is good overall. I liked how they handled the big baddie this arc and hope to see this person again (I don’t wanna spoil too much). Noticing a lot of retconning and bat history tweaks going on, but I’m fine with it. Batman’s history is always changing so the Batman Beyond universe has to change with it. Long as the story is still good, and it definitely is.

It’s true, I searched. There are maybe three Twice cosplayers at max! And, yes, I get the irony of that number.

twice00

Twice’s opinion on Deadpool cosplayers.

Okay, chapter 184. Let’s begin with Eri and the surprise everyone predicted. Yes, readers, Eri is moving to U.A. I’m excited. We may get a chance to see her training to control her quirk as well as her interactions with other U.A. students. Bakugou meets Eri, yes, please! Speaking of Eri meeting people, where’s my Eri+Kota scene? Damn you, Horikoshi. You better not mess this up. I know the cuteness factor is a striking Mach 10 but it’s for the greater good.

Hipster Hotline: Machida-kun no Sekai

machida00

Mangaka ANDOU Yuki didn’t change the manga game,  but she did make Machida-kun to Sekai a solid story worth anyone’s time.

Machida-kun no Sekai stars a high schooler named Machida Hajime. A guy not that good at school or much anything else. But, the one thing he absolutely excels at is relating to other people. Machida knows how to talk to others, get them to open up which leads to him helping them in some way. This is a character piece. Every chapter Machida is either helping someone to trying to understand his own feelings about people and the world around him. Read More…
