Final Chapter (Death & Strawberry)
The final chapter officially ends a 15 year series that I have mostly enjoyed and I’m sad to see it end. With the ending of Bleach, it now joins Naruto as the second of the “Big Three.” This leaves One Piece as the final member left. Bleach has sold more than 84 million copies and is know for its art style. I initially had a hard time getting into the series. The first few chapters were slow. However, the art style drew me in and I began to like the series.
There wasn’t much to this chapter. Orihime and Ichigo get married and have child Kazui Kurosaki and so do Renji and Rukia. Their daughter, Ichika Abarai arrives and introduces herself to Kazui. He surprises her, when he shows her that he is also a shinigami. I wonder what abilities, Kazui has considering his mother unique abilities. Overall, I greatly enjoyed the series and while the ending disappointed me I’m glad to have read the series. Thank you, Kubo.
My Hero Academia
Hanta expresses his confusion regarding Inasa reasoning behind not enrolling in U.A. A female teacher arrives and makes jokes with “Erasing Hero.” Her name is “Smile Hero,” and her Quirk was is Roaring Laughter. Her Quirk forces her opponents to laugh against their will, messing with them from a cognitive and motor skills. Ms. Joke asks Shouta “if he told his class about something that happens every year at the Provisional Hero License Exam; Shouta replies he hasn’t.”
Meanwhile, “Mera of the Hero Public Safety Commission,” introduces himself and explains what the Provisional Hero License Exam entails. He tells the students that “only 100 of them will participate in the Provisional Hero License Exam.” He tells them “that they will first compete in a preliminary round to determine the 100 then compete in the Provisional Hero License Exam.” The preliminary round is designed to test the speed of the students.”
In the preliminary round, every student “will take three targets and paste them somewhere on their bodies where others can see, except their feet and armpits.” Each student is given six balls and is expected to use them to hit targets. These targets will light up when it is hit, once three are lit, the student is considered as lost and disqualified. Only the third target will matter, meaning that whom ever lights up the final of three targets gets the credit. Each student will need to get two people each to pass. So far the start to the exam has been interesting and I’m excited.
The Vivre Card Lola Gave
Nami remembers Lola and is surprised who her father is. The giant tells Charlotte Cracker to let him go and that he wants to see his daughters, Lola and Chiffon. Nami realizes that while at Thriller Bark, she was given a vivre card for Big Mom, from Lola. Randolph interrupts riding on a crane.
Cracker states that Big Mom sent him to take care of Luffy. Brulee arrives on a enormous tree named King Baum. Baum states that “no one they have targeted has emerged from the Seducing Woods alive.” Brulee shows Luffy that Chopper and Carrot are trapped in her mirror. She drops the mirror, shattering it with Chopper and Carrot appearing unharmed.
Cracker begins to attack the giant, he responds by saying “he could be his father, but Cracker says that he, like Big Mom, considered her 43 husbands as outsiders to the family.” Cracker attempts to decapitate him with a sword. Luffy, blocks the sword and forces him to let go of the giant. The giant reveals that his name is Pound and he and Nami flee. Nami pulls out the vivre card. it begins to glow, scaring the homies. The homies can’t “oppose Nami due to feeling Big Mom’s powerful soul around her.” Luffy is knocked into a tree homie by Cracker. Cracker uses his devil fruit ability to increase his number of limbs. Nami tells Luffy that they don’t have the time to “go all out, but Luffy replies that he knows no other way of fighting.“
Another good chapter. We learned that Cracker was sent to defeat Luffy by Big Mom. Cracker’s bounty is revealed to be 860,000,000 Beli and his Devil Fruit ability allows him to multiply his limbs. I think the battle between, Luffy and Cracker should be good. I think the biggest concern is the broken mirror. I can only assume that Brulee can create more and somehow they will escape.
