All things Anime
Look I can’t take it anymore! I don’t care about this dumb chunin exams. SERIOUSLY! This episode had some fight scenes and showed off how epic Rock Lee and his team is. No love for that flat chest monkey Sakura and her team.
So jumping in the other part of the chunin exams started. Each team have to obtain scrolls from other teams. So they in a desert fighting in the hot sun. Neji done checked who to keep from. I done see Neji is a gamer. Attack the weak so you can pass the level. Then Rock Lee. Ah yes Rock Lee….
From the begining of the episode if you check it out the little chick with the rosey cheeks have a very cool ability. She can see many things by just using droplets of water. So she scooping everyone. Hmm imagine if a dude had that ability.
Look the long and short of this episode we have the hidden leaf showing off on the rest of the other villages. There was a bit of drama and betrayal. Yet still a FLUFF EPISODE!!! Come on guys…We want to see the main arc. I am tired of my other friends who read the manga rubbing it in my face about they know what will happen…. Oh also it look Shredder from Teenage Muntant Ninja Turtles made a cameo.
So we still here in the exam room of the Chunin exams. We have Neji taking lead. In truth we all know Neji ain’t no fool and after losing to Naruto in the last Chunin exams he ain’t making the same noob mistakes.
So Long and short Neji started to hit the wall to send a message to his teammates on what to do for the questions. Then Shikimaru throwed in another question to mess with them. Basically he asked who would they send out as a decoy if they was in a battle. We all know it was a trick question.
Side bar moment we have the man Danzo dropping some info about Hanzo. Which in reality he still had the Hidden Leaf Village on his mind. Still a douche bag. Glad he dead. He died like a G though.
This episode isn’t worth your time. If you want to watch it go ahead. Watching Neji getting some air time is ok. The next episode starts the second part of the Chunin Exams. So save that good ramen for when the fluff is over and we back on track. Cause I can’t wait to see how Naruto gonna fight death this time around.
So anyway the first test is happening and it is all about mind games. To be honest I was bored out of mind watching this episode. Nothing of any value happened on this episode. All we know is that Shikimaru is testing them and we all know the leader will rise to the occasion.
I have watched Justice League: Throne of Atlantis four times.
The first time I fell asleep…but that wasn’t solely the fault of the movie. The second time I found myself drawn to the negatives. The third time I saw all the pearls. The fourth time I felt confident in my assessment of what this movie was…and what it wasn’t.
I feel the movie opened strong. In the cold open you see evidence of the popularity of the Justice League (who the government might have called the ‘Super Seven’ if it had tested better) but at this point its more driven by PR than reality. We also get to see a side of Cyborg I never realised I longed for. We got to see Victor. Since Cyborg is mostly machine and it’s the machine that makes him super, it was refreshing to see him struggle to keep his humanity when the world celebrated him for being more than human.
Since I do love flaws in my heroes, seeing a drunk ‘not yet’ Aquaman (AM) in a bar brawl and mourning the loss of his father was great.
What was a HUGE failure to me was the inorganic and painful way they tried to force the Superman-Wonder-Woman relationship. Actually all of the relationships in the movie were poorly paced and explored. The only thing I can imagine is that the scenes were written assuming that we shared the IQ of the fictional human world (you know the world where two of the most famous unmasked super heroes can be out on a date and not be recognised because they put on glasses).
- Mera. Her voice actress is great. Her character has presence. All I can say is “more Mera please”.
- Banter. Shazam provides comic relief from the prospective of the child he is, while Green Lantern and Flash deliver one-liners that make you smile.
- John Henry
- A nod to ‘Deep Blue Sea’.
- How Arthur gets his AM suit
- Aquaman hurt his right hand.
- Neck Muscles. The very talented artists over at DC have a rare disease where they must over sexualise women or draw men like they are in a Super Saiyan power up contest.
- Continuity. (I won’t ruin it for you completely by listing)
- The awesomeness that is Black Manta was wasted in this movie.
- Wonder-Woman fails to read the battlefield (throwing water creatures in the water…really WW?)
- Military prepared to shoot…a tidal wave (wth?)
- Underwater Superman reigns…on land i’ts all about Aquaman?
I give the movie a 3 of 5 (yay to rounding up). The premise was solid but the execution was lacking. The pace felt too rushed though the movie could have joined the ranks of other great DC offerings if they had considered making it a two part presentation instead of one movie. I did, however, like this version of AM over the previous and it was interesting to keep his mother alive. It didn’t escape me that this virtually indestructible AM didn’t seem to show weakness to needing to have water contact…so I’m curious if this was an oversight or a sign of things to come.
Did this movie make me an Aquaman fan…no…but the opportunity for him to earn my respect is now there. That’s right folks, I no longer think Aquaman is the most useless member of the DC universe…that honour now belongs to Zan.
Yep. Never fails. Just when things getting spicy. Naruto and Sasuke is near death. Madara tearing stuff up. Now we have a flash back with Lady Tsunade. Someone please tell me this isn’t happening. Well I guess I better enjoy it.
The Chunin exams. Yep. The last one got jacked up and they basically walking us through when everyone was training. We get to see some familiar faces.
Jiraiya. Nice to see him training Naruto. I mean unlike Sasuke who walk in the bush and suddenly learned a new Jutsu out of the blue. Either way watching that was nice.
Then we have the politics of the Narutoverse. Yeah buddy it is amazing to see how everyone is working together for the great ninja war. Well when you hear man like Madara is still alive you have to put aside your differences ASAP. Lady Tsunade sent out the invitation for the Chunin Exams.
Check joke. Man done start plotting and ting. But I guess that is how it is. A time to check out the competition. See who is trying to move in man territory and ting. Sand Village man looking to kill Gaara. Well Gaara look like he ain’t even scared. He like another Tupac.
These two episodes was like an appetizer. The main course should be coming soon. I can’t wait to see how Naruto gonna pull out of this mess. Until then better brace myself for the amount fluff episodes coming our way. Till then stay frosty!
Yeah buddy! I know I have been slacking off. Been partying and getting close with the family. So look comedy when I decided to check up on my favorite anime. FINALLY someone put that brat called Sasuke in he place. But lawdy dem do my boy bad. Let’s dig in!
As you can see the Original Bad Man Madara getting on rude. He alone going up against all the tail beasts. Now don’t get it twisted he ain’t no toy to play with. He seem quite confident on taking these man out. So when the fight start I thought well Madara gonna under estimate his opponents and Naruto will pull a rabbit out of his hat and somehow beat Madara. Well was I wrong.
So after the little throw down ting turn up….fast. When Madara say he gonna do something trust and believe it will be done. Dude moving like the Old Testament. Once he got one of his eyes back look trouble. I don’t know I think he was better off a reanimation. Dude tasted his own blood and just burst out laughing….crazy man he is.
Now what really got me is how these man does just reattach limbs and insert back their eyes like they was lego blocks. No real talk. Dude lopped off white zetsu arm and slide back in his eye. Just so. Now I ain’t no doctor but when they implanted Itachi eyes in Sasuke they had to do surgery and ting. But I guess Madara is a real bad man. Either way it is game over for the Allied Ninja Force. Why? Well easy Madara bout to wrap it up!
Which brings me to the most saddest and yet satisfying episode I have seen in a long time. The title is True End and I didn’t see this coming. On Christmas day while man eating ham and turkey things wasn’t looking good for Naruto and Sasuke. Well lets start with Naruto. As you know Madara put a leash on the tail beasts after making them with an invisible punch. Real talk he just smacked each of them to the ground. Then started to pull them in. As that was happening Gaara was trying his best to keep Madara from pulling them in. Just as Kuruma was being sucked in he told Gaara something important. We done know what it is. Cause once a tail beast get yanked out a Jinchuriki it is lights out. So Naruto life is slowly leaving him. Which don’t sit well with me.
Then Sasuke. Bout time someone sort him out. Now look didn’t I say Madara is a man of his word. Didn’t he tell that lil bwoy to go long and nah come back. He literally tell him he will kill him. Hmph anyway as he was gonna jump on his bid to try to take a cheap shot on Madara the First Hokage wanted to impart something to him. Now I don’t know if he took it or not but we see this boy trying to take advantage of a situation between Madara and Tobirama. Well it didn’t worked as plan and Madara just did want I wanted to see for a minute. Kill he backside. Stab him with his own sword like a side ting who don’t know dem is the side ting. While he was in shock and losing tons of blood Madara just walked off like another day in the office.
So much to get from these episodes. Will Naruto be able to live from having the Nine Tails taken out from him? Will Sasuke finally die? When will I be able to play online on my PS4? Well all these questions got me even more excited! Well sorry for missing Naruto Thursday. CES 2015 is right around the corner and I am getting ready to make that long run to Las Vegas. Don’t worry will keep you guys informed on anything new! So until then stay frosty!!
