My Hero Academia Ep 26 Review

I’m excited for this new story arc that’s starting! I have read some of the manga but I haven’t read this arc just yet. Seems like Deku is gaining some publicity and its a little overwhelming for him; for all the students it seems like. I was excited to watch this episode because I knew they would be picking hero names (I did read THAT part in the manga!).

 

I love how Midnight was in charge of approving the names they picked out. She was really into it. Picking your name is an important part of a being a pro hero so I can see why its essential you pick out a good name. You don’t want a shitty name stuck to you for life that you can never escape from. Have I mentioned that I adore Bakugo? I loved how he got teased that pros were probably afraid to recruit him and his response was just priceless. LMFAO. I also want to add I really love Midnight’s outfit. Looks like a fun cosplay. Haha.

The hero names were hit and miss. Some of them were like WTF? and others were too long. I loved Froppy! That one was cute and totally fit her quirk. Red Riot is another one I really liked too. Those names were great. We wont talk about “can’t stop twinkling” -.- . Bakugo keeps wanting to add murder to his name. LOL Cam and I couldn’t stop laughing. The rest of the heroes seemed to nail their names. Many of them were typical while some were unique. Then there’s Shouto. LOL Well, I don’t blame him for just sticking with his name. Uravity was cute, too. Really loved it. It makes sense why Ida didn’t take his brother’s. It seems like his mental state is a bit unstable which usually isn’t good with any kind of super hero.

 

I loved that Izuku picked “Dekku” as his name! It’s what everyone already calls him anyway so it made sense. He wants to be his own person. I like how he grasped the name and turned it into something positive. Well, we all know that’s gonna piss off Bakugo. Haha. Surprisingly, Dekku got recruited! And by All Might’s former teacher no less! I’m looking forward to what’s going to happen next with all the heroes and their work place experience!

 

I like how Dekku has fit in nicely with his classmates. In middle school he was teased and made fun of constantly. He got laughed at constantly. At UA though he’s accepted by his classmates. They’re all friends. He’s not an outsider.

 

I’m excited to see how this story develops. I heard there’s a lot of character development for Bakugo, so I’m looking forward to seeing that since he’s my favorite! Did you watch this episode? What did you think of it? Let me know in the comments!

Business Updates.

Well I haven’t written one of these in awhile! It’s our second month with our website and boy is it a challenge to keep up with the content! I fell behind for a bit there and I am sorry for that. I’m all caught up now and I’m going to work on staying on schedule!

 

Attack on Titan is over now so it’s going to have it’s Sunday Review slot replaced with something else. I have been debating on doing fan art once a week. I would do a black and white version and have the colored version available on our MyPatreon. I will even take on requests for specific anime characters. I struggle drawing American comics, but anime and manga, I’m your girl.

 

We didn’t get as many visitors this month so far, haven’t hit 200 yet. It’s a little disappointing but it’s only month two so I’m trying not to dwell on it. This type of business is slow to start. I am happy we’ve gained a couple followers this month though so that makes me happy!

 

I’m trying to come up with new content ideas for next month to try and get us more followers and traffic. I’m hoping my art will be a good start. I know Attack on Titan Reviews were on Sundays, so you’d think Fan Art would replace it on that day, but I’m going to move it to Fridays. Fan Art Fridays just sounds good. Haha. I’m thankful for those of you who participate and leave comments! I love discussing anime and manga, so I encourage more of you to comment! Also, if you have any suggestions for anime I should watch, let me know! I’m actually checking out Food Wars. I’ll be sure to give my first impressions of that one on Monday! I haven’t done any first impressions in a couple weeks and that’s mostly because I hadn’t discovered a new anime I felt worth watching or blogging about. Food Wars though, will get a fairly decent blog post. I have a lot to say about that one. LOL

 

Thankfully, the month aint over yet! We got “Castlevania” coming to Netflix which I can’t wait to check out that original anime! I’ve heard of the game so I’m fairly familiar with it. Cameron will be reviewing that one since he actually played the game as a kid so he can give a decent critique. I’ll probably review it too, though. Cam will be able to review as a gamer and I’ll review it as an anime fan. Our perspectives should be different so that should be some good content!

 

Well, thought I’d do a little update. Not a whole lot is going on, mostly playing the waiting game for Cam to get surgery and back to work. Once he’s back to work, I’ll have more time to dedicate to this blog and have even more content. Thanks to all of you who have stuck with us so far! Be sure to watch for the first of the month blog which will review the previous month and let you know what we have in store for July!

Food Blog: Fortune Udon Noodles

I had heard so many good things about Udon that I really wanted to try it for myself. Obviously we’re a few years away from our trip to Japan so I needed to find something locally. Winco has a little asian food section and we grabbed this by a brand called Fortune. It was refrigerated and in a well sealed package. The directions were pretty easy. You boil the water, then put the udon and the sauce base into it and let it simmer for 2 to 3 minutes. I did three. There’s two servings in one package so I split it between Cameron and I.

 

noodle (2)

 

This was such a different texture of noodle that I’m not quite use to. It was different but not in a bad way. The noodles were very easy to slurp and they were chewy but not in a way that means they’re under cooked. It was a good chewy texture almost dough-like. I devoured my bowl. The broth was mediocre in flavor. Mostly tasted like warm water with a hint of chicken flavor. It wasn’t awful by any means. The great thing about soups and noodles is you can add flavor to improve it. I think I might do that next time. This is the first time I’ve ever eaten this type of food, so I am an amateur when it comes to adding flavor to dishes. LOL That’s my husband’s expertise.

 

If you’ve tried this brand, let me know what you thought of it and if there’s anything you add to it to give it more flavor!

Attack on Titan Ep 37

So much happened this episode. You’ll forgive me if I can’t keep up with all the character names. Haha. I’ll do my best to look them up for this blog so I don’t confuse anyone or sound silly.

 

Hannes’ death was inevitable to me. It just seemed like it would be to happy of an ending for this story if he didn’t die. That’s weird coming out of my mouth since I’m usually not into darker drama anime but this is one of the rare exceptions. It was heart breaking tow watch Eren witness another person close to him be eaten by a titan again. You could see how much it pained Mikasa to see Eren scream in grief. I did not expect the romantic moment between Eren and Mikasa but I was definitely happy to see it! I heard some people didn’t like it. I thought it was okay. It fell flat a little in some parts but it was forgivable to me.

 

I did not expect Eren to have the ability to control titans into attacking someone. That was a bit mind blowing for me. He couldn’t transform anymore and now he can control them. It seems to happen when his anger and the feeling of being threatened explodes and then suddenly the titans attack whatever is threatening him.

 

I forgot to add how much I loved the scenes of Historia fighting. It was the first time I’d ever seen her really do it and do it with purpose. It was well animated and got me excited to see more.

 

Seeing the man on top of the ape man’s shoulder was definitely a surprise. It’s already been proven that titan’s are of human origin. I’m curious if some grand scale war happened and the titan’s were used as weapons. That of course could turn out badly especially if they’re not sentient. I have so many theories running through my head and I’m debating on reading the manga. I already started on My Hero Academia so I have a feeling I’ll be happy I started reading it.

My Hero Academia Ep 25 Review

I was so excited for this episode and it totally delivered. I LOVE Bakugo and Todoroki. This fight was pretty cool but it wasn’t mind blowing like the fight with Deku. Not that it didn’t entertain of course!

I love how Bakugo demands his opponents be at their full power. He’s more insecure than he appears and if someone doesn’t give him their all in a fight, he feels insulted. He feels like he’s being looked down on. I’m curious where all that anger comes from. I’m guessing something happened to be that insecure. That’s not something that randomly happens. Well, in reality anyway, this is a fictional story lol. 

The fight didn’t drag out too long. I’ve been reading the manga so I already knew how it was going to end. Todoroki is still struggling with his own demons so he wasn’t able to give his all this match. I couldn’t stop laughing over how pissed Bakugo was. He nearly got emotional though, that was interesting to see. 

Things are changing for Ida now that his brother was taken down by a villain. It really showed how much super hero families put so much pressure on each other. At least with Ida’s family it wasn’t to the degree of Todoroki’s. 

The awards ceremony was a riot. Seeing Bakugo chained up with a muzzle while he squirms and growls was priceless. I couldn’t stop laughing. The gold medal hanging out of his mouth was a nice touch. Oh, how I adore that kid. 

I didn’t think we’d see so much one one episode but i was impressed with how well it was done. The pacing didn’t feel rushed despite how much was revealed in this episode. I didn’t expect for them to do Shouto going to visit his mom. My heart melted when he said the first thing he wants to do is save his mom! Gah! My heart!

This episode was a blast. I got a kick out of Bakugo’s angry teeth brushing. I couldn’t stop laughing! Did you watch this episode? What did you think of it? Let me know in the comments!

Fairy Tail Manga chapter 539 Review

Now we have a crack in the sky. I theorized this was Acnologia and while Wendy and the others began to panic as the crack increased, I knew my suspicions were probably right. Then of course, Acnologia’s arm comes crashing out of the crack. Seeing the blue pegasus guild deal with this horror while still morning over Ichiya definitely pulled at the heart strings. I really love Mashima’s story telling. He knows how to suck you in and love all the characters he created, no matter how annoying that had been.

 

Acnologia is absolutely terrifying. To think that failed to even wipe out his existence. It makes me wonder what’s happened to Ichiya and Anna. Did they really die? Acnologia survived but he does eat magic, so that might have something to do with it. That Eternal Flare attack made his destruction of Tenrou Island look tiny in comparison. Mashima did well to draw out just how large and terrifying this dragon and his magic is. I honestly can’t tell what town he’s destroying though. Is that Magnolia? Since Erza’s mother’s spell broke, I don’t know where anyone is anyone more at this point. lol Except for Lucy and them. I know where they are. LOL

 

After his massive attack, he makes Wendy vanish. This is curious and I’m glad this is quickly answered with in the next pages. All the dragon slayers start to disappear. This of course makes me think, what’s happened to Natsu? The image of Lucy sobbing his name ripped my heart out. In her perspective, he’s vanished from existence. The amount of trauma that she must be feeling had to be overwhelming. She has lost so many people close to her. Her parents, Aquarius, watching herself die, and then when Natsu disappeared for a year. Now she thinks he’s dead.

 

And then the next page….NATSU’S ALIVE! You have no idea how much his disappearance was giving me damn anxiety all week! I was so afraid Lucy was going to have to do something special to bring him back. Really was hoping for something different. Well, Mashima definitely delivered on that! So, Natsu is fine. He was just transported with the other dragon slayers to face Acnologia. This is going to be awesome. I can not WAIT for this fight!

With Lucy sobbing over Natsu’s “death”, I keep thinking what an intense reunion this could end up being when she see’s Natsu is alive. We did get a kiss between Haru and Ellie in Rave Master so whose to say we wont get one in Fairy Tail? And unlike Rave Master, Fairy Tail is an ecchi. *snicker* Well, anyway, I’m hoping this will lead to an eventual awesome Nalu moment. I’m biased in that regard I know. I enjoy the story of Fairy Tail itself too though and I love the fight scenes.

 

Did you read this chapter? What did you think of it? Are you excited for the next battle? Let me know in the comments!

Attack on Titan Episode 36 Review

There was a lot happening in this episode. Of course we started right where we left off as usual. They’re chasing down Reiner and the others to get Eren and Christa back. I was looking forward to a lot of fighting this episode, especially with Mikasa. When she fights, she’s fantastic. I can’t keep my eyes off her!

 

It was amusing to watch Ymir pull Christa out of her mouth but a little gross at the same time to watch her spit up Ymir’s saliva. Ew. It was cute how Christa didn’t freak out. It surprised me just how open Ymir decided to be towards Christa and how Christa didn’t hesitate to say she’d help her. I really love those two together. I’m trying not to get too attached to them though. This is a drama so, one of them could die. -.-

 

So the other titans attack Reiner and the others. It shows what different kind of titan’s they are. Still more questions need to be answered as to why they can turn into titans in the first place. I have a feeling that’s not going to get answered this season. Still considering picking up the manga. I might be able to fit in one more manga review after Fairy Tail ends (which is in 7 weeks).

 

When Mikasa gets onto the armored titan, the look in her eyes was absolutely terrifying. It was probably the scariest when she as peering between the giant fingers to see Eren. She was not going to hesitate to kill anyone who got in her way of saving Eren. There are times when I wonder if this relationship is healthy or not. LOL Dire circumstances living in that kind of world though so that kind of violence I guess is to be expected.

 

Erwin was absolutely bad ass in this episode. While telling his men to charge to rescue Eren, I was not expecting the titan attack. He barely flinched too and just kept telling his men to keep going! There wasn’t fear on his face, just determination and will. Of course as the titan runs off with his arm, dragging him behind him, you think he’s dead. Who wouldn’t? But nope. Right when when they make an opening to save Eren, he shows up like a bad ass and frees him!

 

This was an awesome episode. A lot happened and we got a lot of action. I was hoping to see more of Mikasa and I’m glad I got what I asked for! Did you watch the episode? What did you think of it? Let me know in the comments!

 

Also…did anyone else notice the silly look on this horses face after the titan ate his rider?

W3xAuUc

I can’t get enough of that face. LOL
