Yakusoku no Neverland/The Promised Neverland - Chapter 152 Review by Seraph

Chapter Title: It's Time


Screaming in the streets...Demons of all ages running in fear and terror...from their fellow demons. The smell of blood and poison lies in the air and in the middle of all this we spot Don,Gilda,Musica and Song Juu analyzing the situation. Norman and his allies weren't able to produce a lot of the poison before attacking the Capital apparently as they only managed to infect a small but highly popular place in the city: The Central Square,the best spot to cause panic and infect as many demons as possible with the small amount they had available. As the Musica-group reaches the Central Square they realize that they're already too late to stop the spreading of the Poison,with many demons...

The Promised Neverland Chapter 151 Review by Emperor Spriggan

Chapter title reminds me of a line from Naruto. During the Fourth Shinobi World War Arc, which was a pretty underwhelming arc all things considered. Funny how this chapter is pretty much the same.

Though, let's see what some of the cast members thought of the chapter. Maybe they saw it different from me

"Another chapter where I get praised as the best thing in this manga since sliced bread? Excellent, exquisite chapter. I rate it a 8/10"- Norman Liebert, rubbing his none existent beards.

"This garbage, of course another chapter where I get to do NOTHING of note, honestly though, why am I still here?"-Ray

"You're talking about not doing anything of note, I legit cannot remember the last time I did anything significant...

Black Clover - Chapter 221 Review by Seraph

Chapter Title: The Rose's Confession


This Week's Chapter of Black Clover deals with matters of the heart,a tender woman's heart to be exact and i'm talking about noone but the Captain of the Blue Rose: Charlotte Roselei. After having run away from Yami in the last chapter,due to a misunderstanding,we can see her sit on top of a Roof reflecting on what happened and her behaviour. She laments that she isn't able to be upfront about her feelings for Yami despite the tough front she always tries to put up in front of everyone,she wonders if Yami considers her a weird woman by now because of her reactions towards him. Charlotte had already given up faith in the men that were nothing but talk,all the while training her body and magic in order to resist and control the curse placed...

The Promised Neverland Chapter 150 Review by Elusia

Overview:


The chapter continues on the fight between Gillan and his army against the Demon Queen, but she attacks back and the army gets slashed. However, she notices a substance that is covering her hands and body. It is a trap from the army as they knew they wouldn’t stand a chance against all the demon nobles, but wanted, at least, the head of the queen. They decided to hold her down while they all give their lives for Gillan. He devours his entire army whereas the queen struggles to get out of her situation. While doing so, he finishes his meal and attacks her head with a large demon-made bat. The mask is still in shape, so he tries smashing it over and over again, reminiscing about the times where she was cruel to him and his clan. The mask...

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...

Yakusoku no Neverland/The Promised Neverland - Chapter 149 Review by Seraph

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. Kaseki proves once more why he is the most masterful craftsman in the Stone World by displaying impressive skill and detail love to the several parts needed for the Drone,he and Senkuu also succeed in creating a Drone prototype ready for testing. Meanwhile Kohaku is about to be found out by Mozu as he voices suspicions towards her and menacingly asks...

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...

Chapter Title: The Worst of the Worst.


This Week's Chapter of Black Clover starts at the Church of Clover Kingdom where we can see Sister Theresa wonder about what kind of business the Magic Congress might have with Marie who barely managed to escape the horrors of War safely,her question is quickly answered as Rebecca rushes towards her announcing that there's terrible news in today's paper. 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. Thanks to Sister Lily reading out the article we learn that it has been publicly announced that Asta is accused of having...

The Promised Neverland Chapter 147 Review by Elusia

Overview:


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...

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...
