Shuumatsu no Valkrie Chapter 37 review by Ramen:

Chapter Summary

This is a continuation of last month's flashback chapter as we see Rudra and Shiva start making their way to challenge the Indian realm in order to make it to the top and finally achieve their respective dreams of being known to all and honored as great warriors. They faced great challenge as many laughed at them and wrote them off as inferior gods who can never manage to defeat the others. One panel shows them entering the battlefield and start clashing with the other gods and the very next panel shows them standing in front of a pile of defeated gods. People started to fear them and were astonished at their power since they started building a reputation ever since they wiped the Ashura tribe. As they started making farther and farther in the mountain, teasing turned into respect and before anyone...

Dr Stone 167-171 Review (Conclusion of the America arc)

Chapter 167
Tsukasa holds Xeno at knife edge, and Xeno is bemused as to how he got there. Seeing the flakes of dirt on Tsukasa's spear, he realizes that they got there via underground methods. A small flashback follows, displaying how Chrome's group managed to infiltrate the castle. Back to the present, Chrome marvels over how grandiose Xeno's castle looks. Xeno is quickly kidnapped, but Chrome makes a mistake while detonating the explosives to seal up the tunnel. This makes the whole entrance cave in and trap Xeno with him. Brody states that they need to save their leader, so both sides began digging towards the centre of the cave.
While trapped together, Xeno tries sweet talking Chrome into joining his side. He states that in the 21st Century, the progress of Science was halted by humanity. But in the new...

Fairy Tail 100 Years Quest Review Chapter 67 (Aqua Aera) by Ramen

Summary and Overview:


Ok and here we go as we've started to pick up the pace a little bit and action is slowly but surely rising. As expected, Natsu and co. can't believe what they heard about Selene and Erza makes the comment that she never thought she'd hear the name Selene in Edolas. Despite all this, Mystogan himself admits to not knowing much about her only describing her as a dragon that can travel between dimensions. Unlike Edolas where there is no magic, Elentir is the exact opposite. It has so much magical power that it overflows giving our favorite hot-headed fire-breathing dragon slayer some "interesting" thoughts going which scare our precious Wendy.

Gray is clearly focusing on something which catches the attention of the others and lone behold it is Touka.....the exceed. She immediately goes and hugs...

Black Clover - Chapter 267 Review by Seraph

Chapter Title: The Devil-Binding Ritual


Asta's Devil has now fully manifested outside of his body and grimoire, surprisingly enough he and Asta share some resemblance in their appearances such as their Grey-ish/White Hair Color and the rather small height. Ironic, considering that Asta's Devil once called him a "Shrimp" and yet he himself isn't that tall either, but i guess it could also be referring to their difference in age and experience since Asta is still a Teen and this Devil most likely hundreds of years old but we'll see about that. As the Anti Magic Devil marvels at the feeling of entering the Physical World again after a long time Asta begins to thank him for all the times were he lent him his powers to fight, most recently against Dante of the Dark Triad...

Eden's Zero Chapter 114 (Named Glue) brought by Ramen:

Summary:

Chapter finally gave us some action on the ground in this neutral planet that we have come to know as Forestra. Continuing from the surprise assault by the machines, Shiki and friends have gotten ready to fight and take on not only the giant robot that initially ambushed them, but also a wave of robots that have surrounded them on all sides. This time they have everyone's favourite mukbanger Couchpo as she tries to eat the robots which seems very effective.

Next panel cuts to Sister treating Kleene but the latter doesn't want to be treated since she's started to enjoy her time on the Edens Zero. She believes that if she get's better, she will be forced to leave but Sister confirms to her that no matter what happens, she does not have to leave and will be welcomed immediately by...

Black Clover Chapter 266 Review by Belserion

Chapter Title: Dark Garden Invitation


This week’s chapter begins with Julius, backed by Rill and Charlotte, explaining the Spade Kingdom Invasion plan to Gaja, who I’m quite relieved to see is still alive. Gaja assures Julius that the Heart Kingdom will join them in the fight, swearing to retake their queen, who’s been taken by Vanica of the Dark Triad. This vow is echoed by Charlotte who silently asks Yami to hold on.

Elsewhere, Nacht has introduced himself to the rest of the Black Bulls and explains the Spade Invasion Plan to them as well. The Black Bulls are a bit shocked considering this is the first time Nacht has seen fit to show himself at their base. When they ask why now of all times he’s chosen to show up, he tactlessly explains that he hates the Black...

Fairy Tail 100 Years Quest Chapter 66 review by Ramen:

Chapter Summary
This chapter opens up with a very brief summary of what happened in Edolas previously with the the whole Anima situation. Onwards from there Earth-Lucy and Edo-Lucy are talking to one another as Earth-Lucy is given some new clothes to wear that are arguably more revealing than her original outfit. Edo-Lucy is asked how her and Natsu came to be parents and we are informed that they were alone in the car and one thing led to another and 9 months later voila! A funny bit of this chapter was Lucy's blushing and stuttered reaction when she was asked if her and Earth-Natsu had a similar reaction where the latter exclaims NOT AT ALL! Edo-Lucy laughs at this and says they might one day get to that point.

Outside we see Earth-Natsu delighted to see Nashi and talking about her with Edo-Natsu asking if...

Edens Zero Chapter 113 Review brought to you by Ramen:

Chapter Summary

This chapter continues on from the last one as Shiki and the crew finally manage to land on Forestra. We learn that as the name indicates, it's a planet that seems to be one giant forest with so much greenery, that Pino says it has made it's way over the ocean. The crew already picks up things that seem fishy as Rebecca can't connect to the internet. The first thing they see when they're on the ground is fishes swimming in the air. Eventually when they make it to the town and Rebecca is ready to indulge in the very hyped cuisine, Weisz stops them as he immediately picks up something horrific; the robots are controlling the humans and treating them like pets by putting them on leashes and keeping them prisoner in cages. Two bots (Kevin and Willem) start talking about the etiquette of taking care of a human but Willem...

Edens Zero Chapter 112 Review by Ramen

Chapter Summary

This chapter opens up with the crew examining the relic they acquired from the Red Cave and discussing the next plan of action as they hold a clue to finding the next relic. While this is happening, Weisz is not happy with allowing ex-Drakken members along the ship and can't believe his eyes as he sees Laguna on the ship and not only does he not agree with the alliance, he loses it once he sees the element 4 member's fashion style. The four shining stars then decide to permanently call Shiki "Demon King" (Shiki thinks it stands for something evil) which they reveal is a moniker for the King of Magimech. Someone who rules Magimech and distributes ether with the machines.

Cut to the Skull Fairy Elsie seems nervous about the thought of Nero and Shiggy going at it whether they have peaceful or...

Dr Stone Chapter 159-166 Collective Review(s), by Hermit

Chapter 159:
Stanley wonders who the real scientist is, after hearing from Xeno that the name they had before was a lie. Xeno then picks a record from several in his stock, intending on listening to Senku's voice again. Once he hears it, he makes an estimate of Senku's body proportions. He proceeds to communicate this information to Stanley. Ryusui warns the crew that there's a sniper afoot, which causes panic all over. Senku then proceeds to make eye contact with Stanley, effectively giving himself away. Rushing into the interior of the ship, he mixes potato starch with water, creating a Non-Newtonian motion. Stanley then proceeds to riddle Senku with bullets, and there seems to be some damage he has taken...

Senku collapses, having being gunned down several times by Stanley...

Black Clover Chapter(s) 255-265 Review by Hermit

Chapter 255:
Noelle's fight with Vanica continues, and after seemingly losing (Due to her mermaid armor wearing off), a new spell shows up in Noelle's grimoire. Vanica then asks Noelle's name. It turns out that Vanica had indeed fought Noelle's mother in the past, Acier, so to this effect she takes Loropechika as a hostage. As she flees the Heart Kingdom, she makes sure to cause her underlings to self destruct. Yami's fight with Dante continues, and Dante promises to show him the true power of a Devil Host.

Chapter 256:
Dante activates 80% of his Devil power. He explains that due to the barrier between the devil and human world, it is impossible for devil hosts to access 100% of their power. Though, he is not particularly sure in...

Dr. Stone - Chapter 158 Review by Seraph

Chapter Title: Who's the Scientist?


This Week's Chapter of Dr. Stone comes with a beautifully drawn and colored cover page of Dr. Xeno and Stanley Snyder along with a popular quote of Aristotle: "What is a friend? A single soul dwelling in two bodies." The Chapter starts with Ryusui and Senku talking about the Mentor-Menteeship between Dr. Xeno and Senku, while Xeno creates tools and weapons meant to hurt and force people into submission Senku uses his science to help and easen the lives of the people around him. A strong contrast between 2 more or less equal minds of modern times. The scene cuts to another flashback,this time when Stanley and his fellow soldiers, Elite Scientists and Journalists broke free from the petrification. As the group expresses pride in themselves and their mental capabilities to stay "awake" for 3,700...

Dr Stone Chapter Review(s) 155-157 by Hermit

Romantic overview:
- In chapter 155, Yuzuriha mentions having a hard time using vanilla essence for Valentine chocolate. Which signifies that she did make Valentine chocolate for someone special? Taiju comes to mind, but she could have as well handed Valentine choco to Senkuu (Seeing how close they are)
- Luna seems to be falling for Senku, after he makes her ice cream. Which is an amusing detail. Her falling for Senku could actually make the dynamics of the crew interesting.

Plot overview:
- Senku reveals Xeno to be the person who guided him in his rocket making endeavor. Chapter 156 is a flashback that highlights this, and the reason that Senku didn't recognize Xeno's voice at first is because they never outright talked. They communicated via email, and the one time they interacted in person, it was a wordless...

Chapter Title: Power Differential


Nero seemingly succeeded with sealing Vanica and Megicula through her Mana Method Sealing Magic: Eternal Prison!, Lolopechka concludes that with Vanica and Megicula's powers being completely sealed there should be no way for their Curse on her to still be in effect. She uncovers her belly to make sure but to everyone's shock the Mark is still on it,meaning the curse remains intact, suddenly a frightening laugther is heard from behind Nero. And the laugh isn't Vanicas, it is Megiculas. The Mighty Demon and Sworn Enemy of Noelle has decided to come to the surface. Speaking through Vanica, the demon mocks the humans for their inferiority to them in every aspect possible but also expresses great joy at the surprises they can...

The Promised Neverland Final Chapter Review by Hermit

A tad late, apologies for that. But this review will reference quite a few things, not just the last chapter.

So, it finally comes to a conclusion. After 4 years of serialization, spanning 181 chapters, the Promised Neverland ended last week(end). Chapter 180 (The second last one), revealed the truth about the details of Emma's promise. The deal was that she would sacrifice ALL her memories about her family. So she in fact lied to her family. Something I quite liked. In this penultimate chapter;

The rest of the kids have been searching the entire world for Emma. An endeavor that has taken them 2 years (Another timeskip in the series), but I am glad that locating Emma is not this easy. Gilda then suggests that they try searching for Emma in forbidden zones, such as where Norman had...

Chapter Title: Spy vs. Spy


This Week's Chapter of Dr. Stone begins with our Head Scientists Dr. Xeno and Senkuu announcing that they are going to take each other's Scientist out, Dr. Xeno wants to assassinate "Dr. Taiju" while Senkuu wants to capture Dr. Xeno with the help of Tsukasa,Ukyo,Hyoga,Suika,Kohaku and Chrome, while Stanley is the man for the dirty deed for the American KoS. Gen can't help but worry about Taiju's safety especially since he cannot contact anybody, Dr. Xeno could be eavesdropping on any kind of Radio Transmission and even if Gen wanted to he could not do anything else since a guard has been assigned to watch his every move. As Stanley heads out he is accompanied by a teenage girl, she questions wether Gen can be trusted or not but Stanley brushes it off claiming that trusting someone who just abandoned and betrayed...

Dr Stone Chapter 153 Review by Hermit

This week's cover is the same as last week's, with both Senkuu and Xeno on it. Though there seems to be less of an antagonistic feel to this cover.

Magma tries acting like a leader, analyzing the current situation. Shortly after, he drops the facade and resorts to his usual state of mind. He decides on killing Xeno, and quickly sets out with Yo. The latter has the gun on him. Nikki beats up the two and hauls them back to deck.

Second time round, Tsukasa acts as the leader to analyze the state of things. A large table in the room has been modified into some sort of a chess board, showing the positions of each of the characters. Ginro suggests running away with the Perseus, but Ukyo states the spy plane would make that a pointless effort. Tsukasa asks Hyoga how he would deal with the intruders if he was Dr Xeno. The masked man states that he...

Decided to do the last two week's reviews as a whole because of the fight's conclusion (Or a pseudo conclusion, depending on what happens next). Therefore:

Black Clover Chapter 252 and 253 Review by Hermit

Noelle takes the first initiative of the fight, using her iconic Sea Dragon's Roar to attack Vanica. As expected, the attack does nothing to faze Vanica. She launches a spell of her own; Red Beast (Using her own Blood Magic). Mimosa is in a clash with the minion who Vanica brought to the room. His magic is.....disturbing. Regardless, the Golden Dawn girl had planted some of her magic on his tongue, so she instructs Noelle and Loropechika to leave that fight to her.

Vanica passes by, slashing her minion with her magic, but he immediately regenerates. A small flashback ensues, where Loropechika had explained...

Dr Stone Chapter 152 Review by Hermit

This week's chapter starts with a panel of both Senkuu and Xeno side by side. A bit like the panels in shonen manga when two rival characters are used as the cover of a particular chapter/volume. In this week's cover, the juxtaposition makes it look like Xeno is an eviler version of Senkuu. His eyes are darker + his hair is also falling downwards, in contrast to Senkuu who has light eyes plus hair that naturally points upwards.

Kohaku and Chrome are both looking at the tower Gen was just taken into, wondering what on earth that structure is. Chrome is concerned about whether or not Gen managed to infiltrate, but Kohaku reassures him that he most likely did.

Chrome contacts the Perseus, but Senkuu tells him not to use that channel anymore. Tsukasa and Yuzuriha both infer that this is because the possibility of hacking exists. Tsukasa asks...

found this subhuman ape tweeting in my newsfeed, honestly I would respect them more if they showed their true colors right away, just tell them to leave their homes peacefully for the new Israeli settlers. Having a middle ground on this is a slap to humanity. When you call the oppressor and the oppressed on the same ground, Its instantly makes you an ape
