Jean, Jon, and Danny are here for more Big 3 discussion on Beamcast!
One Piece 742 leads the show with its look at the past exploits of Kyros and the current events surrounding Usopp. The flashback explaining the history and motivation of the former “Thunderous Soldier of Rage” works well to move him into a higher echelon of characters, while Usopp’s haphazard victory at the end of the chapter is certainly striking, to say the least.
Elsewhere, Zaraki is all the rage in Bleach 574, as Yachiru’s returning savior is given both hype and the opportunity to show off. Gremmy’s casual participation in this fight is cause enough for slight concern, but the clash of styles, personalities, and abilities keeps the action moving nicely.
Finally, Naruto 670 chronicles the dire conversation – once it actually starts – between Hagoromo and the catastrophically unfunny protagonist, whose attempts at levity aren’t even close to being the most egregious error committed in this chapter. No, that dishonor is reserved exclusively for news of the hero’s lineage and latent power, both of which dismantle the most important central theme of the series.
