I’ve been lazy lately. I’d like to blame Bleach for its uninspirational chapters and general shitty-ness, but that’s not really a good excuse. I’ve seen people persevere through thick and thin, and I really ought to do the same. But, for now, let’s play catch-up.
Due to popular demand, I have replaced my review of Bleach with Darkshaunz’s incredibly awesome review.
My, what an amazing turn of events, Strawberry Face has defeated The Lion King, and just after he picks up the Dragonboobs to rescue Snow White….Edward Scissorhands joins the game! Not before shearing some of the Lion King’s vitals though!
And ladies and gentlemen, lets not forget Strongsad, who is currently wanking in the Twilight Zone waiting for his turn to swipe at Strawberry Face! Will our endeared fruit survive the chain of baddies wanting to put him on top of a Black Forest slice? Find out next week on another EXCITING installment of ChloroZzzzzzzzZzzzzz
Lots of startling revelations in these last few chapters, especially the introduction of the last two Akatsuki member and Tobi’s real identity. Not to mention Karin’s stalker habits, and the announcement of the latest Naruto movie. I like how Itachi’s reaction is handled, which somehow managed to make him seem much more human, while at the same time retaining his mysterious aura. Despite all the questions answered though, Kishimoto just gives us more questions. Who is Uchiha Madara, really? What does Madara mean when he says “Everything will go back to as they once were… It’ll be so with the power of the sharingan, and it will be so with my, Uchiha Madara’s, power”? Knowing that Sasuke has the potential to become stronger than himself, did Itachi really kill his entire family for the reasons he stated? My personal theory is that Itachi was looking to make Sasuke strong enough to topple Madara, who seems to be the most sinister character in Naruto so far.

Both Absalom’s and Perona’s fights are more humorous than serious, especially the last chapter of the Absalom fight. Sanji just kept going on and on about the invisible fruit, and how he spent years thinking up the various ways to use it. I enjoy watching Usopp fight, because his lack of prowess forces him to fight smartly. The mix of different types of ammunition and shells makes for some very interesting possibilities, and some hilarious moments.
Next up is Zoro vs. Brook’s zombie! It doesn’t seem to me like this fight will be as one-sided as Sanji vs. Absalom or as fun as Usopp vs. Perona, but something more traditional. I wonder what’s that fire/smoke thing surrounding Ryoma?
