Shogun Orochi is Dead and Is 100% Never Ever Coming Back [One Piece 985]

You heard me. Just because Orochi is basically a mythical Hydra able to grow multiple heads when cut off doesn’t mean he’s still alive. And, it’s not like Kaido won’t chop him into tiny pieces just in case, right? RIGHT?! …*sigh* Orochi’s not dead, is he?

Izo and Cat Viper’s got the right idea. Don’t bring swords to a gun fight.

So, Kaido’s in it to win it. With the Seven Warlords disbanded and replaced with something stronger (Tik Tok dancers?), Kaido decides he’s not gonna wait around for the popo to take him out. Oh, no! Instead, he and Big Mom are teaming up to find the ancient weapons and One Piece. Banking on with them and their combined might, even the Navy and World Government can’t stand in their way. See, Orochi? It wasn’t personal. Kaido just wanted to destroy your country and turn it into a permanent Spring Break with weapons. I’m sure you understand.

Sk8er Boi [My Hero Vigilantes 82]

He was a vig
She was on drugs
Can I make it any more obvious?

How did Winter Soldier steal the Infinity Gauntlet?

No. 6 AKA Nomura AKA Rocks AKA O’clock II. You, my evil friend, screwed up big time. How? Well, you underestimated The Crawler. I can’t help but think of All For One right now. He spent decades letting the One For All quirk build up to a point where it ultimately defeated him.

And, now we have No. 6. As predicted, he wants to use Pop’s death as a jumping off point for his hero career while at the same time blaming the tragedy on Koichi. But, there’s one problem: Koichi’s strong. Stronger than No. 6 predicted. His Slide and Glide quirk is still evolving. And, even more so, Koichi is trying to save his friend. And, if there’s one thing we know about Koichi is that he’s at his best when helping people. Yep, The Crawler is at the top of his game right now and from the looks of things he’s gonna rise even higher.

Chargin Chuck [My Hero Academia 278]

Mt. Lady. Last time I said you’d last only 4 pages. I was wrong and apologize for underestimating you. I would buy you lunch at your favorite restaurant to make up for it, but I’m pretty sure you’re full from all that dirt you ate when Gigantomachia tossed you aside. OOOOOOH!

That’s the face Dabi made all the time while living in the Todoroki household.

Remember the days when the heroes’ surprise attack at Gunga Villa was overwhelmingly in their favor? I even read fans complaining how one-sided the raid was! Ah, yes, I remember… Man, those fans sure were dumb. How could you not guess the situation would be eventually turned around? That’s classic storytelling. Horikoshi isn’t exactly recreating the wheel here.

Alrighty. There’s a lot of smaller things I wanna talk about, but let’s hit up the biggest plot point of the chapter: Momo deciding to lead her fellow students on an impromptu mission to knock Gigantomachia the f*ck out, with gas bombs. Wait. Did Momo create gas canisters (Apparently using roofies in Japan is illegal. The prudes!)? Looks like there could be liquid in those canisters. Hm… Maybe the plan is throwing them in his mouth? It would be the sure fire way to make sure Giganto absorbs the liquid. Plus, you’re also making him eat glass and that alone is a good way to stop anyone dead in their tracks.

Yamato Is A… [One Piece 984]

Kozuki Oden fanboy?! NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

*cries* Why? Why can’t I escape you, Oden? You over-hyped, annoying, woman kidnapping piece of mumble rap! Even in death you haunt me. It’s like I’m Shogun Orochi but without the buck teeth and money. Who cares about that stupid ass Oden Journal? Sure, it may have a clue or two about where to find Laugh Tale and some juicy info about the Void Century but is it worth having to give Oden credit for giving us this information? Damn, it! I’ll be right back…

…Sorry, had to go get more wine.

Doctor…? Who…? [My Hero Academia 277]

Shigaraki. Shigaraki. Shigaraki.

You really are the ultimate thief.

No one’s leaves Gunga Villa without putting on a mask first.

First, you stole Stain’s fans. Then, Overhaul’s research. Then, Re-Destro’s army. And, now, you have AFO’s dream. His dream of taking the elusive One For All quirk for himself.

It’s a great plan, if my theory is right. All For One (the guy) is obsessed with OFA but his body is trashed so why not transfer a piece of your consciousness/aura/soul/whatever to your apprentice like how the OFA Users do before they die? It really is brilliant. It explains why he gave Shigaraki the original AFO quirk in the first place. He didn’t do it to be nice, he did it because his aura came with the package. He’d override Shiggy’s thoughts with his own and have a brand spanking new super body that can fend off Quirk Singularity along with his original quirk and OFA. I get it. I finally get it. It all makes sense if that’s what All For One is going for.

Flight Watch 2020 [My Hero Vigilantes 81]

Koichi mastering Slide & Glide or Deku unlocking Nana Shimura’s Float Quirk? Who will be the first to master flying?

Koichi looks so coo— Bee Pop? WTF?! Queen Pop sounds much better!

Bee Pop’s ultimate goal is revenge. If she can’t have Koichi she’ll kill herself and be forever bound to him through regret. Regret he couldn’t save her. Save his friend. And, that’s what Koichi and Pop are. Friends.

I admit I never really noticed how close they became as simply friends. They hang out together, Koichi supports Pop’s singing career while Pop supports Koichi’s vigilante hobby. They’ve grow closer and closer as a true team. No, they’re not simply friends. They are BEST friends. And, most people will tell you their soul mate is their best friend.

Koichi doesn’t have to save Pop because he’s in love with her, but that they’re the truest of friends. He’s giving everything he’s got to save Pop. No speeches. No threats. Just trying to reach her, screaming her name. It’s no wonder Bee Pop was affected by his tenacity. How couldn’t she be?! The man she thought didn’t love her is risking his life for her. Glad she was able to break free from Queen Bee’s influence.

Teamwork Makes the Dream Work [My Hero Academia 276]

Guess what? There’s more fighting!

Eri’s horn’s small again. Did Aizawa teach her to control her quirk? Or, did she accidentally erase Shinso from existence? Whoops!

Yep. Shigaraki is a tough nut to crack and his Near High-Ends aren’t exactly making it any easier. So, we have the B-heroes busy fighting the Nigh Ends (got that term from someone online) and the rest of the heroes not fighting Shiggy are protecting the evacuees. Protecting, you ask? Yeah, Shigaraki basically ordered Gigantomachia to kill everything in his path and I doubt he’s going after squirrels and gerbils. Hm, do people keep gerbils as pets in Japan? Never mind, you get my point: There’s no backup coming. Or, at least, not much.

If Ujiko purposefully made Shigaraki weaker than All Might to preserve his brain, then what’s at 75%? It’s driving me crazy, y’all! What the hell is Shiggy’s weakness? Using too many quirks? A limit on regeneration? K-pop? I need to know!

R.I.P Compass Kid (2XXX-2XXX) [My Hero Vigilantes 80]

Thank you all for coming under such terrible circumstances.

How No. 6 passed the Hero License Exam.

As you all know, our dear friend, Compass Kid is no longer with us. He was found blown to pieces in the alley of an antique rocking horse store. The irony being he absolutely hated horses. Don’t know why, he only talked about it when drunk and always passed out before finishing the story.

Many of us knew his end was near, that his bright chubby life was destined to fade once partnered with Rock AKA No. 6. But, our pain doesn’t hurt less because of it. In fact, it hurts more my friends because No. 6 blew his ass UP! Daaaaamn!

Zoro will never join you. Unless you mention the permanent open bar in the break room.

Perospero made it to Wano! Yay? Doesn’t look like he brought the rest of the fam though. Social distancing in full effect, I guess.

Sanji’s looking for prostitutes. Does he even have money? Maybe the other Vinsmokes stuck a re-loadable debit card in his raid suit. Pleasure Hall, ha! Call it for what it is, Oda. There’s nothing wrong with being in the sex industry as long as it’s what everyone involved desires. And, you can promote safe sex by have Sanji running around holding condoms. Unless, his raid suit comes with a built in helmet. Isn’t technology wonderful?
