Naruto – Chapter 657

Madara Uchiha is back !

The title says it all, Madara is back and BAD ASS. Sasuke quickly springs into action attacking Madara with Amaterasu, which he seems to absorb. A note is made that Madara “closed his eye’s”, it was unclear to me at first why he closed his eye’s. After rereading the chapters it appears he needs his eye’s from Obito, which black Zetsu. Madara fights Sasuke entirely with his eyes closed, which is  impressive.

MadaraHowever, I don’t understand why Hashisrama hasn’t restored yet (Edo Tensei). Black Zetsu attempt’s to remove Obito’s left eye, but Kakashi and Minato stop him. I’m a little intrigued by the Minato, Kakashi verses Black Zetsu. Personally, I find Black Zetsu to be useless and annoying . It seems that my predictions from last week were correct. Madara does intend to recapture all the bijuu’s, I still don’t see how he’ll succeeded but I can’t wait to see him try. I’m hoping Madara doesn’t become completely overpowered, but we’ll see.

Highlights:

  • Madara fighting blind
  • Sasuke stepping up to fight him

One Piece – Chapter 730

3 Cards

This chapter was spectacular in every way. Law appears to still be alive, but just barely. We don’t get the Luffy and Doflamingo fight I wanted but I think it will happen soon. Kin’emon and Zoro attack Doflamingo in an effort to retrieve the fallen Law. They are intercepted by Admiral Fujitora, he uses his ability on Zoro knocking him to the ground. Luffy fails to intervene due to the fact that the bars of the Colosseum are made of “sandstone”.

Sanji’s group is attacked by the ship of Yonko Big Mom. They reveal that their goal is to capture Caesar Clown (who stole money from her). The Straw Hats concluded that they need to ” keep their new enemies away from Dressrosa” if they ‘re going to succeed.  Finally, Luffy states that they are going to ” Kick Doflamingo Ass”.

Highlights:

  • Zoro verses Fujitora
  • Big Mom re – introduced

Bleach – Chapter 560

keseLet me get this out the way, I don’t like “ Mask De Masculine“. Mask is a boring character, I don’t know why Captain level Shinigami can’t seem to beat him (I guess well learn why). Yes, he’s silly and funny (a complete contrast to Kensei) and I get a little comic relief is sometimes needed. However, if he manages to defeat Hisagi, Ikkaku , Yumichika, Rose and Kensei I’m going to be pissed.

That said I still don’t think he’s going to win. I don’t know why but for some reason the art in this chapter seem better than usual. Although, maybe it’s just the fact that I find Mask and this fight to be uninteresting. On the flip side I did like Kensei’s Bankai. I don’t really like it’s design but it’s effect of having” continuous explosions by striking object” was cool.

Highlights:

  • Kensei’s Bankai
