    Another enjoyable podcast.

    I recently caught up with Kimi no Iru Machi like I asked a few weeks ago and I must say that from catching up and reading it in a bulk it was just amazing. Some of the plot twists and moments within chapters were incredible; I feel sorry for anyone who had to wait each week for a new chapter.

    I will admit that I am not too fond of this new girl on the scene, hopefully since she is upfront about her feelings she will be dealt with faster. I just want the correct pairing to be together again… Haruto and Eba that is.

    Bleach… Chapter of the week? Kubo did good, hah.

    Also caught up on Code Breaker, I wouldn’t say it is the best Shonen action series, But I will say that there have been major moments that have made this series seem pretty fantastic. The design for the Emperors powers last chapter was just amazing.

    Naruto was terrible, those last two pages. Seems like he wanted to out-do Kubo.

    One Piece was good, but not great compared. Bleach was actually the best out of the Big 3 this week, I wonder how many times this will happen… :P

    D.Gray-Man has an invisible story and is just nothing compared to it’s former glory.

    KHR had a bad twist at the end, as you expressed. Though I will say the only thing I like about this series are the only 3 characters I care about:
    Yamamoto, Chrome and Fran and sadly Fran was from the future so he won’t appear again. (Most Likely).

    Kind got Defense devil and Psyren on hold, may read the last few chapters to catch up.

    SWOT. Nice try, but no.

  1. No trackbacks yet.
