Stupid Mega not taking the stupid abridged he wanted so badly
So Mashima really wasted a lot of space here. After such a fantastic start to this arc, he goes and wastes half the chapter on giving us the names of the nine demon gates. Really, this could have all been accomplished on one page, but Mashima felt he needed 8 to do it for some reason. The only interesting thing revealed in the frst half of the chapter was that these demons do serve Zeref. Thats it. Second half of the chapter is not much better. Freed, Bickslow and Ever working at Yajima's restaurant. I think Reli is the only one who actually really likes any of them but its Reli, so who cares about him.
Then things start to get a little interesting. So much to the dismay of 80% of the people on this wiki, Tempesta was not hidden within a guild and shows up to wreck some shit at Yajima's restaurant. It seems they are after anyone affiliated with the council, past or present. Im going to guess that his magic is wind demvilon slayer magic, making it so that Wendy is not their trump card to beating him. But just as Tempesta is going to kill Yajima, Laxus shows up and Toshi creams her pants.
As a standalone chapter, it was alright, but as a follow up to last weeks amazing chapter, it was kind of disappointing.
Bambietta \o/ I like Bambietta because 1, she is hot and 2, the very sight of her makes Rem fill up with disappointment because he thought she was a loli. And is it me, or does Komamura look bigger? And he is back to covering his face now. Anyway, I did like the way Bambietta kept calling him Doggy but its kind of sad that that was the highlight of their encounter. The only thing that I really liked about this chapter was Shinji and his shikai. I love Shinji's shikai. I don't think there is anyone aside from Aizen who could adjust to all the changes, it is just too much. He also stated that he can now reverse the words he is saying, which makes me ask what else did he have to train onto it and what else could it do? It would be interesting if in the future, he could choose who it affects. It would make it the ultimate team fight shikai. And now that the bankais are gone, it seems they have to use Vollstandig, which they seem to be hyping as stronger than Bankai, but based on Quilge's, I don't see it.
Ill give it to FT. Neither chapter was all that great but at least FT is building into something and we can see where it is going. Bleach is in a slump again.
As always, comments are very welcome, so comment away.
