Looks like I win the blog race this week. Take that Reli
What a horrible chapter. I wanted a fight between Tempesta and Laxus. Instead, we get Laxus winning in two moves. What the hell kind of fight is that? It was nothing but a plot device to show that Tempesta can turn into those magic barrier particles and an excuse to make Natsu angry. Really Mashima didn't even try with this chapter. When the fight ended so early I thought maybe we are going to now switch scenes to something epic but no, Mashima just decided to take out the strongest active member of FT and put him on the verge of death.
There weren't really any positives to the chapter. Its kind of cool that Erza is thinking what we are all thinking, that Tartarus is going after Jellal next, and I hope Jellal dies, but really, this was 20 some pages of disappointment.
Another disappointment of a chapter, not because anything was wrong, but because the first 14 pages or so could have all been accomplished in like 3 pages. I didnt need 10 pages of Ichigo running down some steps talking to Urahara. Regardless, we did get to see the Slut Ritters and the Slut Ritters are always nice. It would seem Bambietta is very powerful though, according to Candice. Though in Bleach, thats always a curse to go down easily. Whenever anyone is said to be amazingly powerful, someone gets a powerup and take them out with ease.
I am hoping that Kubo explains a little more on Vollstanding in the next chapter because from what he put in the last one, it seems that Vollstandig is more powerful than Bankai, which I sincerely doubt. Kubo needs to put Ichigo aside now and focus on the war like he has been because I swear if we have 5 pages of Ichigo running in the next chapter I am going to hurt someone.
Ill give it to Bleach this week purely because it wasn't stupid and didnt give us false hope last chapter and crush it away in this one. I really wanted to see a good fight with Laxus but Mashima decided nope.
Thats all for this week. As always, comments are very welcome, so comment away.
