My blog is out before 2 pm. Rejoice \o/
So Atlas Flame is back, unfortunately. I really think its stupid that he was the eternal flame. It was predictable and if its predictable, its likely not good. Anyway, so it seems peoples were right again and Atlas Flame is dead and was brought back by Wendy. So bla bla bla Atlas Flame can't remember a lot of stuff but he tells us that he was frozen by an Ice Devil Slayer. |( I feel like Mashima is reading FT wiki for ideas because yet again, thats something that was predicted on some blog. But whatever. So this guy is named Silver and he is from Tartarus. So here is my crazy stupid prediction that should never happen but Mashima will use anyway. Silver is Gray's father, who survived Deliora unbeknownst to Gray. And yes, I did just use unbeknownst. Then we have Minerva and Erza who are done fighting and are just kind of standing around. Minerva runs away like the coward she is and says she is going to cover the world in her darkness. What a bitch. She should die, preferably in a horrible way so I can see Raven's reaction. Anyway, chapter was pretty good, I just don't like how predictable it all was.
Kubo is actually writing halfway decent chapters again. Thats shocking. To start, I really didn't care for the Mayuri bit in the beginning. I love Mayuri but that Sternritter he was talking to wasn't amusing in the least. However, the continued fight between Sui-Feng and her opponent is catching my attention. Unlike most battles in Bleach, this isn't one where its either someone who is exactly like the good guy personality wise or where their powers are opposites. This is just a good old fashioned fight, which is good. I was not expecting him to be a robot, that kind of came out of nowhere but still, kind of cool. Now here is my problem in this chapter. Bazz B said his flames were stronger than Yamamoto's and could cancel them out. Except we know this isn't true as he was burnt to a crisp by Yama's flames and we know Yama's flames are as hot as the sun. There is no way Bazz B's flames are anywhere in the same league as Yamamoto's. Bad job Kubo. But anyway, all around decent chapter and Bleach is finally getting better.
It was a tough one this week, but I am going to give it to Bleach. I feel Bleach is finally improving after a downward spiral and the fights are actually lasting more than a chapter. FT was pretty good, I just don't like how everything was so predictable. Mashima is an excellent story teller but with this arc, it seems he has just kind of lost it imo. There hasn't been a twist that any of us didn't see coming yet and so that kind of diminishes things for me. I am excited to see where both series go from here though.
Thats all for this week. As always, comments are very welcome, so comment away.
