Black Clover - Chapter 237 Review by Seraph

Chapter Title: Sheer Obstinacy


This Week's Chapter of Black Clover continues with the attack of Spade on the Golden Dawn Headquarters, but you can hardly see anything as everything is being hidden by Mist Magic, in the Middle of a big hall(I say "Middle" because that's usually where the good guys end up struggling for their lives in situations like these-) we see several lifeless bodies as well as Klaus along with 2 nameless Golden Dawn Members breathing heavily from exhaustion. Klaus expresses frustration over the fact that he cannot see anything at all through the thick mist because otherwise it becomes borderline impossible to pinpoint their enemies location, suddenly, an unknown voice praises Klaus Steel Magic and it's defensive capabilities but ridicules him...

Black Clover Chapter 236 Review by Belserion

Chapter Title: There’s No Way We’re the Same


Will Yuno make it in time to save his comrades? Is he strong enough to take on the Spade Knight empowered by a Devil? Let’s find out.

The chapter begins with flashbacks. First we see Yuno and Asta as kids. They acknowledge the fact that they have no blood family and promise to treat the friends they make like family. Next flashback we see the members of the Golden Dawn finally accepting Yuno as one of their own. If we recall, the majority of them were elitists who detested Yuno because he was a peasant upstart. I guess rescuing them from Elf possession and becoming Vice Captain in little over a year goes a long way in changing opinions.

Back in the present, Yuno arrives in time to see the carnage done by the Spade Knight...

The Promised Neverland Chapter 162 Review by Elusia

Overview:


The chapter in the current rampant state of the demon capital where Sonju and Musica headed towards the temple. He explained to her the origins of the demons inside who were once as adored as the gods and were driven away from the city. They appointed kings, assisted their administration and supported by the people around them. While they eventually lost their power, the demons still have a lot of respect for them. One of them was the high priest and his four sages, which she recognized. The priest said to the demon people that they are allowed to break their beliefs after the forged promise to protect their own lives, but has to observe everything they do and pray for them. As such, they can eat cultivated meat and believed that what they are eventually doing to serve the priest and...

Black Clover Chapter 234 Review by E

Yuno arc means I get to hog most of the reviews about this arc ;)))) Genuinely happy he finally has an arc explaining his origins. Giving him more depth and nuance. Was a long time coming.

Noelle: You know what?

Hermit:What?

Noelle: I won't even get mad about you fanboying over Yuno.

Hermit: Oho, why is that?

Noelle: Ever since we teamed up together in the Grand Magic Games, I always thought him a more fascinating character than that dumb Asta anyway.

Hermit: *Stroking beard* Excellent taste, little girl.

Asta: YUNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yuno: Wrong anime. We don't do that here.

Chapter Title: Commander Faceoff!


As the terrifying light of the Medusa spreads across the entire Island petrifying everything in it's wake we see Senkuu hastily formulating a counter strategy against the light in order to avoid being petrified by it, Ukyo uses his final moments before becoming a statue to inform Senkuu that the device is voice activated in order to specify range and duration of the usage. Hyoga and Mos lament that despite fighting for their respective factions to the end they probably will not be revived as they're both too powerful and evil to be trusted again,however,if they are to come back someday then Mos would like Hyoga to teach him in the art of Owari-kan Ryu Style as he has become very interested in the technique and strength that Hyoga displayed. Hyoga agrees to teach him,that is if they ever get...

Yakusoku no Neverland Chapter 161 Review by H

Chapter starts with Peter raiding Norman's shelter accompanied by a horde of demons. He greets the children, condescendingly referring to them as cattle, as big boss music plays in the background.

Perspective shifts to Emma and the rest of the kids who were in the Capitol. They just managed to overthrow the system, and Emma came out as the winner of the Hunger Games. Along with Ray Mellark and Norman Hawthorne. Norman runs into Vincent and the rest of the Lambda kids. Turns out they had followed him from the Capitol, insisting that it was hard not to worry about him. Norman proceeds to inform them about the demise of the Queen, news that they take gleefully.

Oliver shows up a few moments later, on horseback. He tells the group that the hideout was eviscerated. This prompts Katniss and her...

Dr Stone Chapter 133 Review by Hermit

Apologies for the late review, a truck run me over and I woke up in another world where there were no laptops.

But without further ado:

Ibara is still falling from the sky, and he gets to where Yo is. He shouts the command 'Three meters, one second', before plunging into the water. Yo gets petrified, effectively letting go of the petrification device. Oarashi is stunned at what happened to Yo, but Ibara fully intends on having him use the petrification device. He shouts '2000 meters, 15 minutes', before 'handing' the device to Oarashi. Scared out of his mind, he immediately darts out of the water and heads towards the inland.

Ukyo was paying attention to Yo, so he was able to pick on the commands Ibara had used on the device. The rest of the KoS notice Oarashi's crazed run towards the heart of the village, and Amaryllis instructs him to...

Chapter Title: Fate begins to move


This Week's Chapter of Black Clover picks up where we left off with last week's chapter as we see Charmy preparing for battle because Asta told her to stop eating all of the locals fruits and vegetables inside Polnfrume Forest,a magic circle appears on the ground and after a brief rumbling we can see a gigantic Cotton Creation Magic made Sheep emerge from the Forest. Charmy claims that anyone that interrupts a meal should just get run over by this Sheep and die,no worries this isn't an evil Charmy this is just a very very hungry Charmy hehe...,however our very gluttonous dwarf-hybrid isn't on her own anymore as various animals from within the forest have joined her atop the Sheep's head and are eating some of the gathered fruits as...

Dr. Stone Chapter 132 Review by Belserion

Chapter Title: The Strongest Weapon Is….

Yo's moment to shine? Ibara defeated? Hyoga overpowered? Let's see.


The chapter begins with Yo shooting the last bullet at Ibara. He hits his target and the petrification weapon falls into the ocean, which prompts Yo to dive in after it. He’s ecstatic to have obtained the strongest weapon, claiming the Medusa was his. He has big plans for the weapon, the first being to get revenge on Moz for pushing him into the ocean. He has daydreams about everyone praising him as the top guy in the Kingdom of Science, and as he prepares to attack Moz, he realizes he has no idea how to use the weapon.

On the ship, Moz praises Hyoga’s skill and comments on the amount of training he must have had to master his skill. It’s all empty since in the next instance Moz tells Hyoga that it’s not enough to beat...

Chapter Title: The Shackles


This Week's Chapter of Neverland starts with a Flashback to Norman's strategy meeting with Cicero,Barbara and Vincent when they were discussing about the Ratri's possible interference with their plans, Norman brushes the possibility aside as they could easily reveal all of the Ratri's crimes to the Demon Nobles and turn the situation against Peter Ratri. While James Ratri's actions may have been noble and just they would be considered as a betrayal towards the Demons,since they are responsible for the Grace Field Escape,The Destruction of Lambda and by extension the downfall of Goldy Pond. Due to that Peter Ratri can only stay hidden and isolated for the time being as he can only take small actions that wouldn't amount to much if...

Black Clover Chapter 232 Review by Belserion

Chapter Title: Quiet Lakes and Forest Shadows


The chapter begins with Loropechika commending Asta, Finral, Luck, Leo, Mimosa and Noelle for a job well done. Thanks to them Heart kingdom has managed to occupy the town of Tolon, one of the Spade Kingdom’s bases. A copy of Undine, through Noelle’s Water Magic, made the same sort of barrier around the town as the one around Heart Kingdom. The Devil Curse will allow Loropechika to sense Devil Magic quickly and the plan is to expand their territory and drive the Spade Kingdom’s Devil into a corner. Noelle thinks it’s an absurd task yet the Princess talks as if it’s easy. She then acknowledges that with Loropechika’s power they just might be able to do it since she’s an absurd Princess. High praise from Noelle here, and it’s quite obvious...

The Promised Neverland Chapter 159 Review by Elusia

Overview:


The chapter continues where it leaves off last time where the queen is defeated. Before her demise, images from her flashbacks start piling up. It’s also evident of her growing too much power by her broken cup and surrounding herself with countless treasures. She wondered if her true desire is something besides everything she has. She wanted the special human meat to quench that thirst, only to finally die.

The kids went to Zazie’s side while Musica was relieved. At the same time, Sonju contemplated that since all the royals are dead, the whole demon world will inevitably change. He was also astonished that the human kids were able to defeat them and remade a promise with the demon god. He then questioned the aftermath. He’ll have to spend the rest of his life not meeting another...

Black Clover Chapter 231 Review by Hermit

Apologies for the late review, my mind played tricks on me.

Aside from that, wasn't so big on the chapter personally. Bleh, the most interesting bits from last week didn't carry on into this week. There was a bit too much Asta for my liking.

Overview:
Morgianna and her cousin, Mimosa (Ha) kick off the chapter. She laments that Asta is still an idiot like before. Asta himself has just managed to defeat all the slave drivers, saving the people of the Spade Empire. Just then, Morgianna and Mimosa both show up. Morgianna used her Djinn Equip to carry both her cousin and herself to where Asta was. We get a funny exchange where both Morgianna and Mimosa are arguing over her usage of magic. Morgianna tells her cousin not to talk down to her since she is Fanalis, and Mimosa says she is...

Dr Stone Chapter 130 Review by the Best Star Shine

Chapter title this week is 'The Devil's Selection'. Quite ominous, I'd say. Though that color page is.....just extraordinary. Stunning really.

--

We kick off from where we left off last week, with Hyoga being released from his petrification. Gen is shocked, not sure of how things will turn out. Much like the audience, I presume. Nikki asks how they are going to stop him since they don't have a gun. Senkuu states that they first need to know which side he is on, before deciding on anything else. As things stand, he is currently Joker.

Jafar is puzzled. From his memory, Hyoga was a statue. He also remembers Ukyo as being one of the statues before, adding more to his confusion. Immediately, he bolts from the room, and Magma is beaten down by Mozu after trying to give chase. Hyoga realizes how strong Mozu is from that single...

The Promised Neverland - Chapter 158: Review by Zers Editor

Overview:


The chapter starts with Musica, recalling her past, wondering why or how she came to be. She was different, and it brought her many bad things. But Musica still took joy in helping others. But then, thanks of the queen, her friends and family were killed, and she was imprisoned. But thanks to Sonju, she escaped and kept in hiding for 700 years. By the end of reminiscing, she asks of her purpose and right to be alive.

Afterward, chapter continues from where the previous one left off. Musica asks, why the queen is so starving. Despite all the terrible things she did to her, Musica continues to pity the queen for her view on things. Legravalima declares that she is not afraid of anything and takes strong pride in her heritage. Her patience with Musica breaks however, when the...

Black Clover Chapter 228 Review by the Hermit Crab

The chapter title is really really good. Though it also gives out the impression of a villain group as well. Would be a fitting name for an antagonist group I suppose.

Since all my favorites appeared in this chapter (Or were referenced in some way or another), no commentary before the big reveal. Think the chapter did a good enough job of showing all the major players as well.

That said,

--

Morgianna, Mimosa and Finral all reunite with Asta in the castle. Kogyoku appears, and both the Fanalis and Finral are visibly impressed with her beauty. Just as she requests the Black Bulls for their help, she trips over herself. Her Djinn scolds her, telling her she needs to act more like royalty.

Asta asks why she needs their help, and she reiterates what she had told them earlier...

Dr. Stone Chapter 129 Review by Belserion

Chapter Title: Joker


This week continues with our heroes charging full speed ahead towards Ibara and the stolen Perseus. Gen thinks Senkuu and the others are there to rescue him so is shocked when he realizes everyone has lost their minds and are going after Ibara instead. The goal here is to buy time for Taijuu, Yuzuriha and the others to get to the Master, but as we saw last week, they would not be able to salvage him. Senkuu and the others don’t know that yet though. Gen worries because it’s the nine of them vs hundreds, but Magma is already on the ship and completely disregarding the fact that no lives should be taken, orders Ibara to prepare to die.

Nicky reaches Magma in time and hits him on the head causing the shots to go wild and serving only to scare the enemy instead of killing them. Magma is upset and threatens to kill Nicky...
