Meta Jump – Issue 01

Crazy adventures for everyone! Welcome to the first issue of Meta Jump!

Have you ever dreamt about becoming a Hokage? Do you wish you had a Ban Kai? If you saw a Devil’s Fruit, would you eat it? If aliens took over your planet, would you fight back? If circumstances make you adopt a demon lord’s baby, would you do it?! And do wizards kick ass or not? Well, if these questions caught your attention then welcome to the first issue of MetaJump!

There are a few of us here at Metanorn, who are huge fans of these shows and regularly watch them. Every week, different team members will be bringing you their thoughts on the current episodes of Bleach, Naruto, Gintama, Fairy Tail, One Piece and Beelzebub. As they have been running for some time, you don’t expect long summaries, do you? So, sit back and enjoy a few quick hits of the most popular Shonen shows of current time.

—————————————-

Gintama – 218

Kagura- “Meh Today I feel so lazy.”                Gintoki- “Sweet, more food for me this week.”

Ah, Gintama. You’ve been trolling us since 2003, yet that’s what makes me being attracted to you. You have some great serious arcs and fillers that can make me cry for days, but you also have lots of fillers that always make me feel like slapping Gintoki. Such as this crab episode. Like WHAT THE HELL. Don’t these morons know this thing such as sharing!? Why do you think me and Overcooled aren’t trying to kill each other right now? It’s cuz OC has such a kind heart that she’s willing to give me Date Masamune from her Sengoku Basara harem! Why isn’t Tenchou firing me? It’s because I lend her my Gintoki! SHARE, PEOPLE, SHARE…. *cough* Well, on the other side, we as human beings should reflect on this episode. The event is very ordinary, yes, but this shows the greediness that exists in every human. Even if we can change, sometimes the end result can’t be changed (such as the nasty crab food). Although I hate how this episode is stoopid as hell, I just can’t help but loving the fact that even the most stoopid episode has a moral lesson. And how the mangaka is able to turn such ordinary events into something amazing and fun like that. I will never look at crabs the same way again. NEVER.

—————————————-

Naruto – 221- 222

Chibi Naruto coming soon to a store near you.

So we’ve got a double episode this week and, boy, A LOT is covered! First off, Kabuto’s a total creeper, though I don’t quite understand how anybody who drags fat snakes out their behind would NOT be. Also, I totally giggled when he said that he wanted Sasuke because the kid kinda deserves it in my opinion. xD Either way, the fact that he’s joining forces with Madara is not good. At all. Obviously there is the power issue what with this Resurrection jutsu of his – he’s already got the dead members of the Akatsuki and apparently even more than that. And God knows who’s in that last coffin!!! It was enough to give Madara pause which makes me think that it might possibly be somebody he knew well. I’m placing my bets on Madara’s little bro. So yah, with the combined force of Kabuto and Madara, the Five Shinobi Nations have got their work cut out for them. Moving on, it’s going to be hella fun to watch Naruto work with Killer Bee seeing as they’re both absolutely HILARIOUS. I guess the question isn’t whether Naruto will be able to gain control over the Nine-Tails (because he obviously will) so much as what that will entail and whether or not it will be enough to deal with Sasuke. Finally, Kisame’s still alive! It strikes me as odd that Killer Bee is lugging around this dude everywhere and hasn’t realized that he’s there. I’m already working on a trophy for Kisame though. It’s got “PLAYS HIDE AND SEEK LIKE A BOSS” emblazoned on it in gold lettering. Real gold.

—————————————-

Bleach – 332

Nozomi- “Uhhh this doesn’t look right.”             Ichigo- “Stand very still, while we charge you up duh.”

Well this episode of bleach was very nice as far as the action goes; it was great to see more shin on shin action! For those not following the Bleach Anime we have several fake captains aka reigai running around fighting themselves or other shinigami. We also get some explanations on the newest shinigami, Nozomi’s and how her shikai works. Her power allows her to absorbs energy and fire it back at you! So she’s basically a Kirby type of character. The best moment of course would be the arrival of the captain Yamamoto, who cranks up the heat and turns the fake Byukuya into BBQ.

—————————————-

Fairy Tail – 90

I approve of Lucy’s new summer wear! Don’t you?

LILY!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! This has to be one of my favourite arcs yet. This episode was some srs bsns with the whole saving the Exceed thing and revealing the queen’s secret. My only question is how the heck were all the characters pushing the rock? I understand how the flying lizard thing and the cats were able to float and push, but where the rest of them pushing while balancing between the two rocks? Were they standing on something? Does not compute. Charle was awesome in this episode as well. Yui Horie makes an epic tsundere flying cat. I’m a bit worried for the ending of this arc because the anime is catching up with the manga, but hopefully they’ll manage to avoid filler. Somehow.

—————————————-

One Piece – 508

Nami-“Don’t worry my boobs broke the fall.”

Whew, I’m glad we’re past the Brothers arc. It was boring to read in the manga and it was pretty painful to watch in anime form. These half-length episodes with the rest of the crew have been refreshing; I really miss all of Luffy’s crew. Though Impel Down and Marineford were strong arcs in the One Piece lore, the value of Luffy’s nakama and the sense of humor they provide to the show cannot be underestimated. Moving on to episode 508, ~Nami-swan~ showing emotion towards the death of Ace and wanting to support Luffy was nice, not to mention seeing her in that “Moody” tank top was sex. All the weather dudes running around in circles for no reason was kinda humorous. Franky’s arc as a whole isn’t really all that enjoyable, but the little bits about Vegapunk are nice because we just don’t know much of the guy other than mass-producing Kuma and giving Kizaru his light kick.

—————————————-

Beelzebub – 28

Don’t piss off Baby Beel or he will service you with his own version of car wash. Pretty but with it’s own peculiar baby smell.

Compared to the other shows in this issues, Beelzebub is fairly new yet it has that comedic factor that grabs your attention. Once you get over the naked-baby factor, Oga, Furuichi and the gang keeps you busy with their antics and comedic timing. Beelzebub has sure grown on me. Even after dropping it, I randomly picked it up again one day and that small marathon turned out to be good. Not to mention, the production quality and story line has improved a lot with the delinquents now transferring to a new school because Oga simply destroyed their old skirmish ground school. In the current episode, there’s the dreaded physical exams and it’s up to Kunieda and Oga to get it done from their rowdy bunch. Kunieda was so tsundere in this episode that she literally became Ayuzawa Misaki in some scene from the beet red blush to demon eyes to destroy all lechers. Of course, Furuichi would come as close to death as possible because he got the bright idea to sneak on girls examining their slender body and uhem weight. Many LULZ ensue along with these events with their snotty teacher getting his vintage ten-year-financed car destroyed by Oga via his Momotarou split. This is still pretty much funny for me and I’ll meet you on the next Meta Jump issue.

Would you look at the new ED sequence? So pwetty~

For some LULZ! Show ▼

So, there you have it, a round up of this week’s shounen shows! We would look forward to your feedback on this and the format. Let us know what you think and are there any shows that you would like to see here or not. Stay tuned to Metanorn for more fun reviews of these popular shows. Thanks!

    I quit watching all the long-before-ending shows. Especially the top three popular ones-Naruto, Bleach and One Piece. Gintama don’t suit my taste to make me start watching the whole series so far. Didn’t feel like watching Beelzebub. The only series I actually follow is Fairy Tail. (which is also being watched and downloaded unwillingly by me)

    I liked Fairy Tail during my early days of watching but now I no longer have much interest for it due to my friend giving me spoilers from the manga every time. For episode 90, the pushing of the lacrima just to make time for Mistgun is just a “what a waste of energy” situation. Still, all’s well ends well.

    • anaaga says:

      G-Gin-Gintama T____________T

    • Foshizzel says:

      Yeah some of these shows are really hard to jump right into, like Bleach and One piece getting up there in numbers. The easiest one probably would be Beelzebub or Fairy Tail for now.

      Yeah when fairy tail started out it wasn’t that amazing for me, but I like the pace of that series how things are insane and crazy! And very dramatic <3 Yep pushing for 90! Hopefully it can be as huge as One piece with 500+ episodes xD

    • Karakuri says:

      I am willing to sit through all the rock pushing it takes just as long as it avoids filler. Yeah, I found it hard to sit through too, but I gave it about a half year break and just caught up again. It’s easier to watch now.

  2. BlackBriar says:

    Whoo!! I’ve been following Naruto Shippuuden since the Five Kage Summit. It’s getting good again and this time it’s gonna be an all out war. And the enemy will be none other than the Akatsuki. I want to know how powerful they because not only is Kisame still alive but Pain alone was able to destroy the entire Hidden Leaf Village. So now all five Great Nations are filled with anxiety.

    Kabuto’s new Orochimaru look gives me creeps especially that snake behind him. He won’t be an easy foe to beat. He’s even got Madara spooked with all those fallen Akatsuki members and what was in that last coffin he brought out. It’s gotta be one of the dead Hokages, maybe even the first one because The First Hokage was the one who Madara in the current state he’s in. Kabuto has Itachi in his arsenal. Sasuke’s gonna be pissed when he hears that.

    Naruto is already goofy and Killer Bee is good for a laugh with all his rapping. Getting them together to train so Naruto can control the Nine-Tails should be interesting to watch provided Killer Bee doesn’t get to Naruto with his rapping. Seeing Naruto completely control the Nine-Tails will be awesome.

    • Foshizzel says:

      Naruto is getting fun again! Now to sit back and watch him train with killer bee! Should be very funny to watch those two meet.

      LOL Yes!! Kabuto’s new look is freaaaky, and those powers! I wonder how hard it will be to fight those zombie Akatsuki? Yeah I think it might be the first that Madara saw in the coffin the one he fought. Ahahaha yes! Sasuke is going to be all WTF

  3. Alynn says:

    I should probably pick up on watching Beelzebub again. Just the screen caps are making me laugh!

    I like the concept of this! And the layout is nice too. It makes a lot of sense not to have really long summaries for these long running shows. Good job!

    • Foshizzel says:

      Beelzebub is going well now new arc and action starting next week! Back to the awesome fighting. I do love this current ending song and video so good xD

  4. Overcooled says:

    Whoa, this is awesome! Got to give tribute to the long-running series. Out of the bunch I’m really only following One Piece and Naruto, and that’s in manga form. Gintama…one day I will conquer you!

    Also, lol at Anaaga’s love for Date. Of course you can borrow him! Do whatever you want to him~ (just don’t tell me about it afterwards)

    • anaaga says:

      READ. GINTAMA

    • Foshizzel says:

      Yeah figured it would be cool to get something like this posted up xD Yeaahh One piece and Naruto are getting good, I haven’t started the manga versions yet one day!

      Loloolol poor Date he will never be the same D:

  5. anaaga says:

    Sorry Tenchou, but Beelzebub still can’t beat Gintama’s gags

    • Kyokai says:

      Nobody’s comparing them actually. =P

    • Foshizzel says:

      Gintama has the lul factor that is sooooo true! Beelzebub is up there on some jokes I do find myself laughing along with that too. Hell One piece has a few gag characters that always are doing random or funny things, even Zoro can manage to do something funny.

  6. tomphile says:

    Now I’m tempted to watch the Fairy Tail anime…as for the manga – I have no idea what’s happening.

    • Karakuri says:

      The manga is in a really intense arc right now. The anime is pretty good too though. The arc the anime is in is pretty good right now, but I wasn’t too fond of the one before this. It still had its moments of awesome though.

    • Foshizzel says:

      Fairy tail anime is going strong now! Really impressed that it started out small with 25 episodes all the way up to 90! Woooo! Anyway I like that series. Manga version I haven’t even looked into starting yet.

  7. Moni Chan says:

    long running shounen anime’s ftw!!!!!! the only down fall is to catch up with them. cuz for some reason I can’t

  8. Foshizzel says:

    Woooo hooo! it’s up! Really hope everyone enjoys this post the format might change up but we shall see.

    Really enjoying all these shows so far! Well besides bleach because it’s currently stuck in filler-mode, Fairy tail and Naruto seem to be going fine as well.

    One piece! Yes finally were back to Luffy and training mode go! Now to see what the rest of the straw hats are up to. And Beelzebub for the lulz xD

    • Kyokai says:

      Same here! We gotta give some love to the long running shows as well. A good initiative, Foshy~ <3

  9. Hime says:

    Dropped Bleach around the 100 mark.

    Dropped Gintama around the 50 mark.

    Dropped Beelzebub at the 25 mark.

    Never watched One Piece.

    Never cared for Naruto.

    Regret not getting into Fairy Tale, but I had too much other stuff to watch when it first started airing.

    • Foshizzel says:

      Daaww missing out on some fun stuff! Well Beelzebub is alright it manages to be funny still for me, Fairy tail is goood! I like it at first I thought it was going to be stuck at 25 but now it’s all up to 90! ;D

      • Hime says:

        I honestly lost the will to live watching Beelzebub towards the end…

        • Kyokai says:

          I got interested just after the big fight with Toujou. Gintama I’m slowly catching up with while I’ve lost my patience with the rest of ’em. >.>

    • anaaga says:

      you suck

      you suck

      you suck

      I don’t like you anymore

  10. Jrow says:

    I like this. I like this a lot. Celebration!

    Naruto’s chibi-jinchuuriki form looks kinda funny there. I feel like I should be watching the anime again, so maybe keeping up with it here will bring me back for the occasional episode.

    I read Fairy Tail before it became an anime. I liked it, but initially felt it was similar to One Piece enough to where I just made a decision that I only wanted One Piece.

    • Foshizzel says:

      LOLOL Thanks for that awesome video xD

      Yeah they had to explain how Naruto would take those powers and finally learn to control them, things are getting good again new bad guys and training!

      Yeah I think a few people were already into the Fairy tail manga before the anime, in a way it is similar to One piece I thought the same thing but gave it another shot and loved it! So many cool characters.

  11. Junko says:

    Oh this is cool 😀

    Thank you Fairy Tail for reigniting my love for a good ol’ shounen. I love the pace, I love the characters, I love the show and the manga. Although and I curious too how they’re going to deal with the upcoming arc.

    • Foshizzel says:

      Yes very cool! Another side project for us to jump in on.

      Yeah Fairy tail has some great characters! I would say out of the huge shows both Fairy tail and One piece have some of the best characters. I haven’t read any of the manga but I probably will soon!

  12. Yvoon says:

    yes!! Meta is gonna be following the popular shows!!~

    Truthfully, i dont actually watch it, but read it. anime’s just taking too long and the seiyuus for fairy tail dont really match the characters either…

    I do still follow Bleach and Naruto, but for me it’s becoming more like one of those shows you follow just for the sake of following, not because you are actually interested.

    The only i watch, well read actually, is Fairy Tail.

    Beelzebub, i’m not gonna go anywhere near and i hope to start Gintama~ i saw promo in Ao no Exorcist (ep 15 i think?) and it got me really cracking up!! so plan on watching it soon~

    • Foshizzel says:

      Lol well were going to give it our best shot! xD

      Some of the voices don’t that’s true but I do love Fairy tail! Some fun characters and always a comical side to most episodes.

      Bleach and Naruto are getting good! Although Bleach is stuck in filler, but this filler for Bleach looks amazing! Well animation is near movie quality.

      Beelzebub is slow at the start but I was surprised they have some entertaining fights! Gintama is more for comedy factor but every once in a while they pull off some great action/fighting arcs.

  13. Ceyrai says:

    I only watch Fairy Tail and Naruto for the manga scenes that I want to see animated, which is a pain to find given the tons of eps I have to sift through. So Meta Jump is going to be a great help for that. Thanks, guys!

    Also, the Beelzebub ending is LOVE~ I just wanna screencap and screencap and screencap. <3

    • Foshizzel says:

      Yeah there are a ton of episodes! I am happy Fairy tail has continued for this long I thought for sure it would end around 26 episodes.

      Ahahah yes that is a great Beelzebub ending <3

  14. Samantha Zan says:

    Ohhh yeah for Shounen Jump reviews! I still watch Naurto and Bleach from time to time, and I usually watch Fairy Tail when I can remember XP. Are you guys going to do the mangas for the Shounen series too?

    • Kyokai says:

      We’ll think about the manga review after getting used to this section in a few weeks and see if we can get that in as well. :3

  15. pp says:

    man with the rate the Naruto anime is heading… I can predict a stupid filler for the next few months or until the manga has enough chapters for the anime to work on for a few more months before we see another filler cycle.

    I hope the naruto anime will expand a lot more on the fights for the current war, since the manga is rushing to push them out. Which leaves out a shit ton of details.

    I personally just want to see all the dead ninjas using all their jutsu agains. =/.. Especially all the ex-kages.

    • Foshizzel says:

      True! That’s the bad thing with anime versions of these popular shows! The waiting for the good stuff, well I haven’t even started the Naruto manga I know I should D:
