Shoulda Called Whitebeard [One Piece 969]

Remember Whitebeard, Oden? That guy you consider a brother? You had 5 freaking years to send someone out to find him or do it yourself. Yeah, it would’ve been hard sneaking away but at least TRY.

OP_969_004
Geez, the Kurozumi Clan took full advantage of Amazon’s Devil Fruit Black Friday sale.

And while I’m on the subject of stupid, how could you let Orochi stay in power? He had the flimsiest excuse keeping the throne. Uh, duh. We don’t know who Sukiyaki wanted to take the throne. Really, now? So, he wouldn’t want his son to take the seat? And, neverminding that, Orochi admitted tricking his way to the throne! One of his lackeys impersonated the Shogun! The entire power structure on Wano was manipulated into making him the ruler. That’s some Grade-A bullshit! That alone is enough to destroy any validity to the throne. Come on, Oden. Come the hell on, dude. THINK!!!!

Okay, okay. We don’t know the details behind Oden giving in to Orochi. The only one who knows is Shinobu, but I’m sure it’ll be revealed eventually. It better be good, Oda. Probably something to do with opening Wano’s borders and no factories in Kuri, something like that. What else could Oden do? He had to put his trust into the man who manipulated his way to the highest position of the government and poisoned his father. Duuuuuude.

Is That Papa Kaminari? [My Hero Academia 258]

MHA_258_005
Did you take out the trash?
258KaminariDenki
His name’s Mineta, dad.

Check out the lightning bolt hair and eye pupils. If my theory about the Kaminaris being a part of the Liberation Army is true then I can see a member of their family in a high-ranking position like Adviser.

Normally, something like that would be the juiciest part of a chapter but there’s just so much info to cover. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the beginning of the biggest battle to happen in My Hero Academia since the Class A girls caught Mineta rubbing his junk on an old potato chip bag Momo threw away.

I’d like to thank Horikoshi for two important things in this chapter:

One, Why the Liberation Army was so weak back when they first fought the League of Villains in Deika City. And, two, acknowledging a number of people aren’t happy about the merger with the LoV. Finally! Things are making more sense. You can’t just have an evil organization join your sorta evil (Or, at least, fanatic) organization and have everyone be fine with it. THAT little detail will become a problem for Team Shigaraki at some point.

R.I.P. Final Fantasy Protags [My Hero Vigilantes 70]

MHA_V_70_01770FFVIIGameover

♪ You’re a mean one, No. 6. ♪

Welp, we were right. Narufest’s manager is indeed Rokuro Nomura AKA No. 6. So, what does this mean? Well, first off, the final Narufest is gonna be insane. After what happened at the Sky Egg, there no telling what No. 6 will do this time. He’ll know exactly who’ll be there and have full-access to anywhere in the area. It’s gonna get ugly, y’all. And, this time All Might may not be around to save the day!

Who Cares About the Roger Pirates? [One Piece 968]

I DO!

Me! Come baaaack!!! Don’t leave me alone with him. I can’t take any more chapters focused on Oden!

OP_968_002
Chill out, Shanks. Roger loving The Rise of Skywalker isn’t the end of the world.

In an effort to keep my review positive, I downloaded an app that tweaks my words slightly to make my writing more positive. Any app revisions will be in green. Now, with that said, let’s get on with this shitshow. …Hm? Oh, sorry, I forgot to turn it on. Let’s get on with this loveshow. There we go!

It’s only the last half of the chapter I respectfully disapprove of. Everything with the Roger Pirates was great as usual. We now know Roger’s feat was built up mainly due to the World Government wanting him asleep after learning the truth about the world and the public embellishing the treasure he found at Laugh Tale. Not that it matters since Roger is living less and mutually uncouples with his crew. A good idea, not only because they accomplished their goal, but it’ll be harder to find every member if they all split up. Safe to say Roger gave himself up just to protect his crew after talking to Whitebeard and hooking up with Portgas D. Rouge.

Who’s the other sovereign the Sea Kings were talking about? Joy Boy? Luffy? Richard Ayoade? Well, I hope it isn’t Luffy because I strongly dislike the idea of him being a “chosen one”. Forget that stuff! Keep that sass out of my One Piece.

Nana: Warrior Princess [My Hero Academia 257]

Wowzers! You know you’re buff when Wonder Woman looks lanky compared to you.

Speaking of Nana Shimura, did you notice that symbol on her belt buckle? The one that looks like an upside-down A? It turns out the mathematical symbol can be read as for all. Interesting, right? For All. Could that be Nana’s hero name? And could the All Might codename be Toshinori’s homage to his fallen master? Hm…

And, what’s up with Toshinori wanting to visit Stain? Does he simply want to learn everything the Hero Killer knows about the League or is there something else? Could dear old Stainy’s original desire to become a hero stem from one of the Past Users? …Nah! I don’t think Stain’s that old. All Might’s been a hero for decades, after all. But, could Stain be related to one of the Past Users? Hmm…

Too Nice to Be Good [My Hero Vigilantes 69]

Mr. Nomura is No. 6.

There, I said it.

MHA_V_69_001
Now, press this button to trade your Zacian for my Skwovet.

Look, y’all. This could be the reason No. 6’s face was mostly obscured every time we saw him just so we’d be surprised with this big reveal. Take a look at this:

number6againnumber6

Similar hair. Similar body type. It’s certainly possible, right? I mean, come on! Are we to believe Mr. Nomura just happened to run into Pop Step when she was in trouble? Nah! He’s been keeping tabs on her and intervened to stop those RPG thugs just to gain her trust.

Shippa’s Paradise [My Hero Academia 256]

♫ As I walk to my laptop to read the latest chap, I take a look at fanfics and realize there’s nothing left. ‘Coz I’ve been pairin’ and carin’ so long that, Even the Tumblr kids think my mind is gone♫

Yes, yes. Lots to shipping fuel this chapter. Deku and Uraraka. Uraraka and Asui. Uraraka and Death Flags. Whoops! Excuse me, not that one. I meant Toshinori and Death Flags. I can’t be the only one who caught that right? Toshinori looking at Deku’s back, acknowledging how much he’s grown, almost like he doesn’t need him anymore. Yeesh, the only way it’d make his upcoming death more obvious is if he decided to retire 3 days after Shigaraki’s scheduled to finish his power-up.

Joy Boy, the Dave Chappelle of One Piece [One Piece 967]

967dave
Wha? What the fuck is juice? I want some Bink’s Sake, baby.

OP_967_018-019

Put down your suitcases because we got a lot to unpack here.

Let’s start with Roger and Oden being able to hear the voices of certain things or creatures. Could that be an ability all D’s once possessed? And, if it’s true, does that make the Kozuki Clan descendants of D?

Man, Big Mom had that Road Ponegliff for a loooong time. No surprise Oda didn’t reveal where the last one is, but a lot of fans are guessing Elbaf. Makes sense, a land of giants would be a great place to get the last Road Ponegliff, and the island itself has been hyped for years.

We got confirmation Buggy and Shanks never reached Raftel. Or, should I say Laugh Tale. Not sure about Buggy, but I’m guessing Shanks was later told everything that happened on the final island. Him having that knowledge would be the only reason why he’d be allowed to speak with the 5 Elder Stars in my modest and adorable opinion.

Should I talk about Oden abandoning his home? Or, the whole reason Wano became a 95% wasteland was because of him? Should I mention how Toki should’ve let Oden and the freaking ROGER PIRATES spend at least one day bashing Orochi’s head in and appointing Kin’emon the new Temp Shogun and then set sail?

…Nah!
