Dr Stone Chapter 121 Review by Emperor Spriggan

Very, very good chapter this week. Completely blew away all the other WSJ chapters last week, and by extension, all the other manga chapters as well.

We kick off from where we left off last week, with Kohaku continuing to fight Mozu. He is a bit impressed by Kohaku's skills, but he tells her that she should have realized that even an army of her would be unable to beat him. A bit of a shocker, I thought that Kohaku was a bit nerfed since she didn't have her shield and spear, though I didn't think the difference between both fighters was THAT big. Makes you wonder who will be the one to eventually bring Mozu down.

He does offer her a way out though. Mozu asks Kohaku what kind of guys she is into, basically telling her he wouldn't mind her falling for him. Tying her hair into a bun (Her usual hairstyle), she then states that she is...

Black Clover Chapter 220 Review by Belserion

Chapter Title: Visits

This week’s chapter was basically wrapping up the farce of a trial Damnatio tried to instigate against Asta and Nero/Secre. With Fuegoleon’s decree from Julius that the Black Bulls venture out of the kingdom, the Nobles feel safer knowing Asta will be going into exile. The fact that it’s Julius who made the judgment and two Royal Captains endorse it seems to have eased their fears. Damnatio admits to Asta that he underestimated the trust placed in Asta, but warns him that if he proves to be of no use to the kingdom he will be executed.

Later that day, Damnatio visits Julius and scolds him for trying to shoulder the burden of everything that happened with the possessed Magic Knights and the Devil despite his smaller form. Julius is pleased with himself for...

Chapter Title: The Call of Duty

This Week's Chapter of Neverland picks things up right where we left off with Emma and Ray making their way towards Norman,while on their way Emma kept thinking about how they have to stop Norman at all costs before it's too late while passing demon corpses and destroyed buildings with the explosions all over the city not ceasing in the slightest. They reach one of the Castle's Towers and attempt to enter it but to their surprise all the gates have been locked,we remember that this is Vincent's doing as he took care of the Security for the Capital with his Squad, Ray wants to continue looking for another way in but is stopped by Emma who has spotted a small window above the gates to...

Dr. Stone - Chapter 120 Review by Seraph

Chapter Title: Top Seacret

Last Week's Chapter 119 of Dr. Stone revolved all around Kaseki's revival,the retrieval of the Perseus Crew's statues and scattered parts of said statues by Taiju as well as the creation of the parts for the Drone like a propeller,a fidget spinner(Yeah,believe it or not...),Pachinko's and an engine for it. The entire Perseus Crew and a mysterious person have been fixed and gathered ready to be revived,they have all made it onto the Island now thanks to Taiju.

Black Clover Chapter 219 Review by Emperor Spriggan

Very good chapter, with one particularly outstanding moment.

Alright so, this chapter kicks off from where the previous one ended, where the Black Bulls appeared to save Asta from Central Room 46. Gauche tells Asta that he should be judged for touching Marie (This reaction was a bit weird to me. He didn't realize Marie was there the whole time? For someone who actively keeps tabs on his sister. Also, shouldn't he say something to that Damnatio guy?)

Yami addresses Damnatio, sarcastically thanking him for taking care of Nero and Asta. Nero insists on the group taking Asta and escaping, leaving her behind. Her captain tells her that she has no authority to make that call. Magna and Finral, along with the other BB members are all excited about Nero, and bear no grudges even...

The Promised Neverland Chapter 148 Review By Emperor Spriggan

Another chapter, where we get more focus on the civil war between the demons. Truthfully I'm struggling to remember the names of all the others minus the Queen. Giran is an interesting character though, credit to him. Loved how he was turned into a pariah in the last chapter.

One of the lower ranking nobles tells the Queen to stand back, while Norman and his group watch from above. Andrew is thrilled, everything has gone all according to Norman's calculations. (One more W for the Norman camp in this arc, to add to all the ones we had already accumulated;P) Norman instructs the others to move in, but refrain from attacking. The plan is to eliminate the last one standing. Be it Giran or the Queen.

We then switch to a flashback of...

But it's not just her who is seeing these terrible news,back at Hage Villages Church we can see Father Orsi and Sister Lily checking out the Newspaper as well,their expressions displaying nothing but disbelief and shock as they look at a drawing of Asta in Black Form.

The Promised Neverland Chapter 147 Review by Elusia


The chapter continues on from the last chapter where Gillan and his army infiltrated the demon castle in the capital. Snippets of images are shown as the demon below him shouts wickedly at him. Then, the flashbacks start going back seven-hundred years ago, beginning with a demon meeting. The former family head, Gillan, talks about their current situation in how low quality human meat production has been slow over the years and if they did nothing about it, it would be bad for the public. He suggests opening up the royal treasury as well as the nobles providing meat for the masses. Despite of all the family heads rejecting the idea, he stands by in his opinion as he recounts how their fellow kind transformed back into wild demons and...

Dr Stone Chapter 118 Review by Emperor Spriggan

Beautiful color page this week. Love the detail about Kohaku being a mermaid, and Senkuu catching her.

The chapter kicks off with a short flashback from the last one, and we see Ryuusui and Soyuz at the bottom of the sea trying to save Kaseki. His body is buried partially at the base of the sea, so they are unable to budge him out. The two are also running out of oxygen, so they are a bit short on options. Senkuu calculates they have 4 minutes of air left. Which means, they need to act fast.

Ryuusui immediately springs into action, signalling Gen and the others at the top by fervently tugging at the rope attached to the ship. Gen and Senkuu identify the message as Morse Code. Gen identifies the message as a cry for help, realizing that Ryuusui wanted the revival fluid. Senkuu tosses the revival fluid into the sea, and Ryuusui...

Black Clover Chapter 217 Review by Belserion

Chapter Title: The Scales of Justice

The chapter begins with Asta and Secre standing outside of the Magic Parliament Court House. It appears that they were invited there to give their testimony about what happened in the war. Asta is nervous because he remembers what Julius said about him possibly dying, but he thinks he can make them understand if he just talks to them. He plans on explaining about the elves, the devil and how the reincarnations got undone but Secre warns him that his position is shaky and tells him not to get careless. As the two enter the courthouse, shackles are placed on them much to Asta's shock. Members of the parliament surround them from the stands murmuring about the two. Damnatio appears and introduces himself as the chairman of the magic Parliament and...

Black Clover Chapter 216 Review- Re:Emperor Spriggan

Chapter was mostly a world building chapter, but done pretty nicely. It kicks off with Asta panicking about what the Fourth Hokage has forewarned him about, in regards to his death. Captain Kyoraku offers his condolences for Asta, albeit in a comedic manner. Julius continues to explain that Asta's anti magic comes from a devil, a detail that was a bit obvious to most of the readers.

Asta himself is shocked by this reveal, but he recalls a few times in the past where he felt his power was too ominous. Noelle herself affirms this, but she and Mimosa are unfazed by the reveal. It does nothing to change how they regard Asta. The Hokage continues to explain Asta is affected by a curse called 'Vegh', ala, Hollowfication. TL: DR-Asta is becoming a Vizard, so he needs to find a new...

Chapter Title: The Kingdom of Science's Counterattack

Ryusui aquired!
...and with that Ladies and Gentlemen i welcome you to this week's Dr. Stone Chapter Review where we are reunited with a Fan favorite,naturally one of mine as well, the self claimed greediest man of the World and Master Sailor! Ryusui! The one and only has been revived by Senkuu and Co. through their gathering of platinum from the Treasure Chest Soyuz. While he seems exactly the same as always he has lost his distinct markings at his fingers and face when he was revived for the 2nd time possibly hinting at the markings being leftover signs of thousands of years in petrification,or at least i'd believe that being the case. As he makes his re-entrance he immediatly concludes the events that happened since the crew has been petrified as well as what Senkuu is currently...

The Promised Neverland Chapter 145 Review by Emperor Spriggan

This chapter was a bit transitionary, nothing exactly big happened except towards the end. Probably why the title 'Many Threads' is kind of fitting.

It begins where last chapter picked off, with both Ray and Emma heading to the Royal Capital to stop Norman. The two decide to stop Norman before he kills the nobles, since once they were dead there would be no one to negotiate with. Emma asks Ray how long it takes to get to the capital, and Ray says 5 days. 3, if they rushed without taking any detours or short cuts.

Anna says that there are only 2 and a half days left till the Tifari, so regardless they are short on time. Emma and Ray also needed time to rest as well. At this point Oliver and the Goldy Pond kids show up with...

Black Clover - Chapter 215 Review by Seraph

Chapter Title: Three Problems

This week in Black Clover we pick up at last time's cliffhanger where Yami and William had set out to see about Julius preserved body who was believed to be dead this whole time only to encounter a much younger version of the current Magic Emperor, who is now 13 years old again!. Yami and William are still in disbelief over their friend and mentor's current state and most importantly that he is still alive, Julius himself is rather nonchalant about the situation as he is kidding and giggling about what occured. Yami questions how it is even possible for this to be real as he believed to have witnessed the Magic Emperor's Final Moments before,he teases and mocks Julius in a comical manner and lifts him up even but ultimately voices his...

Dr. Stone Chapter 116 Review by Belserion

Chapter Title: Miracle in Your Hands

The chapter begins with Senkuu explaining to Gen how to make the nitric acid by utilizing a small amount of the platinum. Gen admits that while he still doesn't know much about nitric acid it was enough to have Senkuu and Tsukasa fighting for it. Originally the cave where the nitric acid was found was called the cave of miracles, but now as Gen points out, it's no longer a miracle because Senkuu is creating it with his own hands. They now have the means of reviving all of humanity. In theory at least. Nitric Acid Acquired. All that's left for them to do is to win the battle against the petrification ray at the island where it all began. Elsewhere, Ibara informs his troops there is an intruder among them.

Gen is excited about the nitric acid since it means they can create gun powder, and in...

The Promised Neverland Chapter 144 Review by Elusia


The chapter begins with a flashback to Sonju and Musica noticing a presence approaching them. After a short exchange, they plan on luring them out and if their followers are pursuers, they would strike back, as it happened in the previous chapter. Hayato immediately notices Sonju standing behind Jin, but Ayshe pins him down while the tall demon attacks the Adams clones at ease, though Musica reassures him that he won’t kill them. Sonju asks Jin once more to leave before Jin shouts to just kill them all, no matter the cost. Ayshe shouts out to Sonju about the incoming attack and he dodges, saying that anyone who dares lay a finger on Musica would meet their demise. Before a proper fight can break out the Adams clones suddenly stop...

Dr Stone Chapter 115 Review by Emperor Spriggan

There is a bit of a surprise in this chapter, with the results of the popularity poll. I genuinely thought that Gen would come second place. Senkuu being first place wasn't really a surprise, but the second and third place rankings were. Ryuusui appeared what, 20 chapters ago? Genuinely amazed he pipped Gen to second place. Also with more than 500 votes? That's....genuinely surprising. I'm also a bit surprised Kohaku didn't rank 4th place, and that Tsukasa outranked Suika.

Moving onto the chapter, Kohaku finally managed to get the treasure chest open, remembering what Ruri said about the 100 stories and Platinum being inside the chest. She gets disappointed though, since she realizes there is just sand inside the capsule. The guards at the palace pick up on the sound when the capsule caved in, and immediately go to check the source...

Black Clover Chapter 214 Review by Belserion

Chapter Title: Dawn

This week’s chapter picks up from last week, where our heroes are watching as the Elves leave. Rades suddenly gets angry and casts Wraith Magic: Soul Abductor on Licht. He says the magic is something he can only use on someone who’s been with him a long time and Licht qualifies. Rhya realizes the body that housed Licht’s soul has magic again but it’s not Licht’s, it’s Patri’s. The magic is not a reincarnation but a reanimation since the body was only a copy made by Sally. Asta wants to know what Rades is doing but he doesn’t even understand it himself. He tells Patri that he’s not going to allow him to go off and and be happy, he’s going to stay and think about all the people he trampled underfoot, specifically Rades himself. Patri asks if he should thank...

Black Clover Chapter 213 Review by Emperor Spriggan

This chapter feeds onto the previous one, a conclusion to the arc. All the fighting is over, so now the main cast is occupied with escaping the enemy stronghold. Oh, including the elves as well, pretty much everyone who survived the course of the arc. There's a hilarious scene with Charmy holding onto Yuno and vowing to never let him go.

The issue of the elves still rampaging through the kingdom pops up, and Mereleona says they could just roast them all. This is a pretty funny remark. Asta wonders what he can do with one sword, and Patri suggest they can use William's magic to counter all the elves. Valtos appears, giving Patri his grimoire. Patri then asks Asta to undo his reincarnation so that William appears.

Patri turns to Raia and Fana, telling them he will be heading...
