Some exciting episodes this week. Check out sixth shounen issue~
Gintama – 223
Quiet, you idiot! This is a stealth mission…
|Only in Gintama a father’s love can be twisted into something humorous like this. As usual, this episode is able to question real life issue, and this week’s issue focuses on how fathers should treat their children, with love or ignorance. Here Matsudaira thinks that a father’s role is to make money only, while the job of raising her daughter is being carried by the wife. While I agree that the man should earn the main income for the family, I think the father must also show his children his love for them. Of course, the father has to make sure that his kids won’t be spoiled because of that….Now back to the humor. I’ve never been fond with stuff nasty jokes that are involved with, um, dungs, but Gintama never fails to make me laugh on every nasty jokes they have (except last episode’s). The part that cracks me up the most is the part where the two cones are in the elevator. I was “LOL HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE WHAT ARE THE CONES!?”…And to be honest, I still don’t know the true identities of the cones. It’s still a mystery until now. Or I’m just too stupid to realized it|
Bleach – 337
Hollow Ichigo- “HEY YOU GUYS! I CAUGHT A FISH THIS BIG!!”
|More adventures with Ichigo, Kon and Urahara! This episode was great for action having all the real captains finally showing up fight the fake ones. About time! It was great to watch Hitsugaya actually fight his clone this time I don’t think they ever fought, and I am sure some like watching Byakuya versus himself again I think they just like to stare at each other for hours. And my personal favorite! Kenpachi verses Kenpachi! Always makes me laugh, and the real captains were saved by the gatekeeper and firework guys? Way to go crap first season characters you did something amazing. I almost forgot the best part! The return of hollowfied Ichigo near the end roaring and screaming! Even thou I rather see him in his final form with the giant horns.|
Naruto Shuppuden – 227
Naruto is having a hard time becoming the king of games.
|Wow. This has got to be the most eventful ship ride in the history of ship rides AND IT’S NOT EVEN OVER YET. At least it doesn’t seem to be. UGH. I can’t take it anymore! It’s so bad! This episode began by Gai-sensei being lifted away by a BIRD. A BIRD. GOOD LORD. I did appreciate the fact that I got to see Gai-sensei babysitting a bunch of baby birds that were practically twice his side but the episode was just another depressing story about ghosts and massive animals. It was a tad interesting because it explored what happens when man vies for power and messes around with things that shouldn’t be messed with. Quite obviously, Mother Nature doesn’t take too kindly to it and screws man over by creating monsters that eat everything in sight. I thought the summoning monster was creepier as a fetus-like being than in its mature form, the latter of which made me want to laugh. That being said, I’m sure that if I were there with Naruto and co. I’d be screaming and pissing my pants. Thank goodness for hot lava. Luckily next week we get to see Rock Lee! It’s definitely a reprieve from this never ending ship ride that makes me want to puke. And not from seasickness.|
Sket Dance – 27
Principal- “I am the boss! And I order you to clean the entire school…in five minutes!”
|So this week, that Sket are asked to put on a picture play for the principal’s grandson because apparently he’s incapable of making the boy smile himself. So they make an adaptation of Momotaro and IT IS HILARIOUS (ROCK ON!). No, seriously. Go watch this; it’s even better than the manga version. Unfortunately the principal doesn’t find it so amusing. The second half,the Sket have to watch over the kid himself. However, the kid is a brat and even Switch ends up getting angry. Then they play baseball, suddenly the kid isn’t a brat anymore, the Sket get a couch out of it, and everything turns out awwww right. Anyways, the second half wasn’t all that interesting, but the first part was definitely worth watching. Anyways, they never showed it, but the next episode has Momoka in it. I had almost completely forgotten about her.|
One piece – 513
Its a One piece party! Time to get drunk!!
|On some filler island, shounen anime can go and pick up a bunch of episodes to fill time while waiting for new arcs to begin. Here, the second half of the episode features Chopper going back home and reminiscing about his past and meeting Luffy. I love Chopper, I think he’s a fun little tanuki, but any side arcs involving him or the likes of Movie 3 & 9 are just so boring. The first half was a little better with seeing Jewelry Bonney getting captured and Akainu out on the chase, which is cool to see Admirals become more involved in the hunt as we start to approach the New World. Countdown to New World is roughly 27 days.|
Beelzebub – 32
Volleyball with super demon powers rocks!
|LOL, this episode had so much WIN. I’m glad I stuck around this series because things are definitely getting serious and funny as hell. If you thought things weren’t good enough with the six Knights romping around the Saint School against the Ishiyama delinquents, think again because Hilda and Alaindelon have joined the fray as well. Talk about demon competition because as the word has it, there’s more than one demon in the Saint school. Things pick up with the volleyball challenge and everyone fires up with a crappy subbed tape that Alaindelon doctored (these guys are so easy, they don’t even need much of a reason to fire up for a fight). Hilda keikaku dooris Kunieda to become the captain of the team and pretty much becomes the catalyst for hard training. OH, highlight of the episode: bishie Himekawa; man, you should keep your hair down FOREVER! On the background though, Miki is up to no good as he trains like a beast and prepares to faceoff and destroy Oga. The preview has some interesting flashbacks and a fight that Oga will lose against Miki (DOH, PIE(R)ROT, for giving too much away on preview!). How he picks himself back up is what keeps us going, ne~?|
Fairy tail – 95
Natsu, you lucky dog you! Now that is a hug!
|So back to Earthland and the Queen of the Exceed finally explains her motives. Also, it turns out that she’s Charle’s (…I’ll just stick to calling her that) mother, but she doesn’t bother telling her because she wants to find the other Exceed she sent to Earthland first. Same goes for Happy’s parents. Oh and SURPRISE! Lisanna is actually alive. Turns out she was sent to Edolas for whatever reason and the Edolas version of her died so she was welcomed into Fairy Tail fairly easily there. So yeah, Lisanna finally meets her real brother and sister again (who are conveniently standing at her grave for dramatic effect) in an extremely touching reunion scene. I’ll admit, I teared up and I wasn’t even paying that much attention. Looking now, nothing really happened this episode, but next episode takes a look at Edolas after the Earthland people leave. …Did this happen in the manga? Oh well, I liked seeing the Edolas opposites, so this will be entertaining.|
There you go! This week’s batch of awesome shows! See ya next time~
