    probably, there's not that many chapters and each storyline feels like 1 or mayyybe 2 episodes of material

    Jump Festa going on!

    Chainsaw man Part 2 being published in the summer! Also the anime in 2022 at some point. Supposedly announcing the cast today.



    Bleach anime for the last arc coming in October. Hearing Number One still pumps me up after all these years.

    I'm pretty sure I read all of Bleach, and I cannot for the life of me remember much of the final arc

    Number One is the only song from bleach I have on my phone I’m pretty sure, not sure if I’m feeling that remix though.
    The final arc is pretty dumb, I had to google it because I forgot the name and it definitely triggered some memories.

    Real spoilers for this arc:
    Ichigo continues to be a special boy and is ALSO secretly a Quincy. Which is handy because the quincies are like fuck soul society this shit sucks. I had to look it up because I had kinda forgotten all that and mostly just remembered the squad zero stuff where they did a last minute ass pull of there being a whole other society on top of soul society that’s like so much better and stronger and here’s these new characters and oh look they’re dead.

    Kinda weirded out by good looking bleach animation though.

    'Ingrid, the White Deer' sure is a great webtoon for anyone interested in a romance about a lady and a drug addled mess of a human being.

    'I choose the emperor ending' is, on the other hand, just some real ridiculous comedy/romance thing. Great horses too.

    Really that's been my passion lately, sharing the amazingly good or bafflingly awful horses with my friend.

    'The princesses spaceship' is this kinda bad story with some art that basically made me laugh every few minutes. Not due to comedy, but because these people are like 40% neck. It's amazing. It's just giraffe people all the way down. Then a horse showed up and he's like super well drawn and proportioned and I almost feel like the artist just draws people on the side and their passion is probably horses.

    Still enjoying this vague historical romance/villainess/booksekai binge. Good stuff.

    It's no surprise. The IP itself is pretty solid. The live action movies did great and the last manga did pretty well. Most people don't pay much attention to the creative force behind things and the series itself really hasn't been particularly problematic.

    Bringing his wife into the team as a writer helped out in more ways than one, as well, for those who were paying vague attention.

    Maybe we'll get lucky and Yasuto Nishikata will get the nod for director and we'll have another Killing Bites tier classic to look forward to.

    So, Muteking just ended. And, uh...it...ended. Like, the bad guy was defeated and the day saved. But I otherwise have no idea what the hell happened across the last few episodes.

    It started out as a goofy monster of the week type show, had a couple of episodes near the middle where shit got real, and then wound up a huge mess. It wasn't bad at all, but it didn't end up making much sense. I kept assuming it was building to something, but none of the reveals actually explained anything, they just happened and the show kept going, getting weirder, throwing out more...stuff.

    Music and colors, still good.

    The author of ruroni kenshin was a convicted pedophile right? Or was busted for possession of child pornography or something?
    E: yeah it was possession of CP

    Not to be confused with the author of Toriko and Build King, who was sentenced to prison for child prostitution... in 2002.

    Shueisha just doesn't care, I guess.

    Watsuki was caught in possession with so much CP that investigators almost thought that he was a distributor
    He confessed in interview what his "tastes" are.
    Like...how the fuck does this guy still have any kind of career?

    I thought he kind of didn't have a career any more?

    Like his creative works are still making money for him but I don't think he's been directly involved in making anything new. I could have also swore he got some prison time but maybe that was someone else.

    It got pulled by Viz for Western distribution, which is something, I guess?

    I am still mad. Rurouni Kenshin was one of the most formative pieces of media in my childhood. I barely ever buy physical manga and yet I have the entire Kenshin run here in my shelf right next to me. Finding out this shit was the mother of all milkshake ducks.

    I can't believe King's secret is that he's fucking hot AF.

    Also, in anime revival news that DOESN'T involve pederasty.

    Sigh. Apparently it's the week for it, because the author of Galko-chan (which was crude but charming in its own weird way) has also been busted for possession of child pornography. Stuff like this is why I'm increasingly hesitant to mention I enjoy the hobby at all, because the gross side is never far from view, and often serves to mask truly heinous shit like this.

    Well, on the more wholesome side - Yomi no Tsugai has just started.

    Why does this matter? Oh, it's just by Hiromu Arakawa!

    No word that i can find as of yet on an offical English release, but good news nonetheless.
    And having gone and read the first chapter, it's fucking *wild*. Can't wait to see where this goes, what a start.

    So does the final Bleach Season start immediately where the old anime ended, or is there a bunch of Manga stuff that happens in-between?

    Also I like Bleach, but it has the same issue I have with Dragon Ball Z, all the non-Ichigo (and I guess Captains) become irreverent pretty quick. Let the human characters grow in strength and be as strong as everyone else. Or just Chad. We need more Chad.
