Naruto Chapter 592

Photobucket

Orochimaru, why won’t you just stay dead? It’s been a while since his death, right? because I can’t even remember how he died or the circumstances under which he was killed by Sasuke. But I do feel sorry for him when I think of how he went from being one of the Great Three of Konoha to the enemy of the entire village.

At this point, with Madara still alive and in full control over his body, it really does seem hopeless. It wouldn’t make sense for the Five Kages to suddenly pull something and beat Madara. He’s too powerful to go down that way. I’m really expecting for the Five Kages to lose or at least receive some type of reinforcement because there’s no way determination and the will to beat Madara will get them through. They could barely even put a scratch on Madara while they’re all beaten up and barely hanging on there.

Or I could be wrong and the strength of their determination will overcome all odds allowing them to create the ultimate plan to defeat Madara with just the five of them on the brink of death. It’s plausible in the world of shonen manga.

Brief enounter with an old lady

so this is a picture I found off of google, I’ll update this with a picture of the library’s manga shelf on my next visit.

Recently, I’ve visited my local library to volunteer and Tuesday was one of the days that I volunteer on. I always head straight to the manga section and work on putting them back in alphabetical order and straightening them up. Even though I’m not suppose to, I tend to pick up a manga title that may look interesting and browse through it. After I’m done, I put it back and continue my work.

So as I was working, this lady who is quite old, a senior citizen, is another volunteer and is performing her task. She deals with the pick list which is where she pulls books off the shelves that are on the list that other people have requested through the online services. She heads up to the manga section to pull some books off. She wasn’t able to find a book and so I offered to help her look for the X Men series vol 3. She sat down on the little bench in front of the manga section while continuing to search for items on her list. Next up was Shugo Chara Vol 11.

It’s only been about five or ten minutes and I thought I should try to say something to her and so I asked the first question that came to my mind, “have you ever read any of these mangas before?”. I shouldn’t have asked. I had the slightest hope that maybe this lady would be open-minded because of the fact that she was an adult but I was wrong. She replied with a laugh characterized by disbelief that I would even ask such a question and said “are you kidding me? no, no way. I would never”.

Right after she said this I thought, but old people in Japan actually enjoy manga and animes like One Piece or so I’ve read somewhere. I really wanted to say this to her but it wouldn’t have made a difference. She would’ve passed my comment off as simply a childish attempt at defending the value of manga.

It’s made me want to reconsider whether I would want to let others know of my passion for anime and manga if they can’t at least respect it.

Naruto: Chapter 535

Did they seriously think they could stop Naruto from leaving the island? They’re underestimating him.

This chapter leads us to the moment where Naruto leaves to join the war.

I’ve been reading around and some people believe that it’s stupid for Naruto to join the war when the war is being fought to protect him. He’s just blindly heading out without any regards to the possible consequences.

I believe that it’s a lot better than to do nothing and sit around being protected. He plans to be the Hokage one day and yet he’s going to sit on his ass while doing nothing when his nation and friends are fighting. I can only imagine the feeling of being protected and not doing the protecting. It makes him feel as if he’s a burden and that’s the last thing he would want to be. Besides, he wants peace and happiness for anyone; if he wants it, he’s going to have to fight for it. Nothing will be accomplished if he spent the entire time on the island.

I find it more assuring to have Naruto fight on the battlefield because of his abilities. He’s so reliable now. There’s a possibility that Madara may win the war so it’s better to play all the cards than to regret not playing the trump card when they end up losing the war.

I think that Naruto is justified in wanting to take part in the war and it’s better to have someone of his caliber out on the field.

[Manga Review-ish] MAOH Juvenile Remix Vol 1

Title: MAOH Juvenile Remix. Volume One
Original Story by: Kotaro Isaka
Story and Art by: Megumi Osuga
The original author is Kotaro Isaka and Megumi Osuga did an adaption of the original. The adaptions is this:

MAOH

There is no humor but I think it would only ruin the dark atmosphere that the story is trying to create. It has this horror feel to it due to the art but it’s not horror on the level of freight. It’s more of an eerie kind of feeling with mystery mixed in. I feel that this is one of those ‘dark themed’ mangas but that’s because I haven’t read anything that’s deep. I’m more into mainstream shonen.

Katekyo Himan Reborn: Chapter 326-Daemon Spade Is Such A Bastard.


Yamamoto refers to an acquaintance that saved him. I wonder who it might have been. I’m thinking it could be one of the arcobalenos OR that one doctor dude… I think it was Shamal. Yeah, Doctor Shamal might have been around to save Yamamoto. Well, I’m not going to get tripped up over that because at least Yamamoto was saved so it’s all good.

The Breaker New Waves: Chapter 18


It’s been a while but I finally caught up on this manhwa. I love the change in the attitude Elder Jang-Ro and accepted Shioon as the new head. Jang-Ro really experienced some major character development. Before, I thought he was just a bastard who was just toying with Shioon’s resolve of wanting to win the match.
