Update 8/31/14

Hey guys, it's time for a new update. Let's start out by saying...this kind of thing where I update early won't be a usual thing. Today just so happens to be the fair. I'm going anime shopping. *grins* I'll post pictures of any goodies I get in the recap update. 

Before we start. If you follow me on Instagram, Tumlbr, or Twitter then you already saw me talking about this. For those of you who don't....why aren't you? Just kidding. Released to iTunes on August 20th, 2014 was the Ignite EP by artist Eir Aoi. Don't recognize it?

It is the EP that contains the OP for Sword Art Online 2. Yep. My favorite summer 2014 anime opening. So obviously I bought it. You can too!

Check it out here: iTunes

So today...let's talk about what to expect come the fall season and then a recap of what has happened for far in Naruto Shippuden.

I got this list from anichart.net/fall. When I get the exact release dates of each of the shows, I promise to update this so you can tell. The few dates I actually have are from the website, but I will be researching Wikipedia and other streaming sites over the next month or so. 

What show do you look forward to? I have seen pictures of Trinity Seven and that kind of looks interesting. Who knows?What do you all think I should watch for the fall season? Let me know. 

Moving on to the next topic of discussion. Naruto Shippuden. No I am not reviewing it...yet. I will in the far future after the series has finally ended. Which should be in the next year or two from what the rumors say (at which time I’ll do a manga and an anime review). No I am just here to recap if you will the last seven years of the show.  Yeah I know. That is an awfully long time. To think that I have only been watching the show since last year, and there have been those who have been watching since 2007 or even longer (if you started with Naruto). I won't go into details about each arc, I am just going to discuss what episodes and seasons belong to the arcs. Plus the names pretty much summarize what is going on.

Now this next part, I am giving you multiple warnings. I will be talking about spoiler stuff. I am going to be discussing deaths current to the anime. So from episode 1 all the way to the current episode of the Ten Tails Revival Arc. I won't discuss manga deaths that haven't been animated yet because that isn't fair to those who are anime only people. I also won't be discussing anime only deaths. If it didn't happen in the manga, I won't discuss it. If you choose not to read then skip down the end of spoiler alert message. It will be bright magenta in bold and capital letters. It looks like the spoiler alert message just in magenta. That is the safe zone and you should be able to read on in peace.

I am actually very curious to see what they have planned for the rest of Naruto Shippuden. Obviously they are just going to finish out the series under Shippuden as it is part 2 of the series. It's just going to be sad when it is all over.

So some exciting news. They have announced the release date of the new Naruto movie!

The Last: Naruto the Movie

Release Date: 12/06/2014

Who's ready? I so am.

So this is the end of the Naruto Shippuden break down thing that I just did. Don't even know what to call it. Arc breakdown? Ha-ha. Whatever.

What are you looking forward to in new episodes of Naruto? Do you think they will do any more filler seasons? If you were to do a filler season what would it be? If I were to do one, mine would be all about Minato Namikaze...I have a weird obsession with him. Plus you have gotten to see a lot of his past from other people's POV but you haven't really seen too much from his own. BRING ON THE MINATO ARC! Sorry...

So guys, this is the transition. CHARACTER OF THE WEEK.Ha-ha. Each week on Tumblr and Instagram I post a hint of a picture asking you to guess which anime character I have selected to profile. This week I have selected:

Mamoru Chiba/Darien Shields/Tuxedo Mask

from the original Sailor Moon

Now if you are like me you grew up on Sailor Moon and you know Mamoru as either Tuxedo Mask or Darien.

Well Darien is the male protagonist of the Sailor Moon universe. He is the love interest of Sailor Moon. In the original version he was portrayed as a college student whereas the manga and the new anime series he is actually only in high school.

He was orphaned as a child when his parents died in a car accident and he has been alone ever since. He has very few memories of his past.

In order to regain his memories he roams around as his elusive alter ego Tuxedo Mask. For a short period of time when Darien has forgotten everything again in later episodes his subconscious takes on the persona of the Moonlight Knight.

When he fully regains his memories, it is revealed that Darien is in fact the Prince of Earth. He fell in love with Princess Serenity of the Moon.

Now his love life in the original anime is kind of odd. Though he clearly has feelings for Sailor Moon, there is a point in the series before he remembers his past that he is “dating” Rei. Sort of. Then he is dating Serena on and off through the series until the end where he proposes to her before leaving for a trip.

It is implied that they get married shortly after the series. Darien’s closest companion besides Serena, is Chibausa. (Don’t ask me to try and spell her English name…I don’t quite get how the spell it) Chibausa is actually his daughter with Serena (Chiba refers to the fact that she is smaller and Usa refers to her name Usagi which she shares with her mom, in the English Dub her name is Serena too)

Speaking of, he has the dirtiest line (if you are older and understand the implications) in the second season (Sailor Moon R). In episode 81 “Final Battle” of the English Dub (haven’t seen all of the series in Japanese yet so I don’t know if he says something similar or not), Darien and Serena are standing together watching Chibausa head back to the future when Darien says something to the effect of they won’t have to miss her for long. The implication being that they will have sex in the near future…Here listen and see how you interpret it. (start at 19:20 if you don't want to watch the whole episode)

So yeah, when I heard that I laughed my ass off. "Just for now." Yeah it could be interpreted that he "foresees" her coming back but...the other is that in the near future they'll be...well you get the idea. These are things you don’t catch as a kid but you understand as an adult.  

What did you think of this Character of the Week? Have a character in mind that you’d like to see in this segment? Let me know on Twitter, Tumblr, or Instagram using #characteroftheweek. I’m always looking for suggestions.

That’s all folks. Well that’s all for those of you who don’t read the latest chapters of Naruto and Bleach. So I say a fond farewell to you until next week and say welcome to hell for those of you who are with me on the chapters.


So I am going to do this a little bit different. Instead of discussing Naruto first, let’s talk about Bleach quickly then go into depth about Naruto.


Still unhappy with Tite Kubo. Just saying. He just is making me lose a ton of interest.

So Hitsugaya is trapped under the drugs of Kurosutchi and in what appears to be agonizing pain.

Unfortunately for the captain of Squad 12, back up arrives in the form of Rangiku, Kensei, and Rose all as zombies. Kurosutchi then sends the Arrancar in to battle.  

Across the way Byakuya is standing surrounded by the bodies of his fallen enemies.

Shuhei arrives for assistance after fighting his one then he attacks Byakuya.

He is being controlled by a new Quincy on the scene.

Maybe one day this war will end.


Speaking of war. The Fourth Great Shinobi World War is finally over!

Thanks to Sakura’s punch, Sasuke and Naruto were able to seal Kaguya (finally looked up her name for this last time).

Team Seven stands victorious until they realize that they have nowhere to go.

All the sealed biju are released and free once more.

Sensing that the fight is over due to the symbols returning to his hand, the Sage sets up the course for team seven’s return.

Remember when I talked about the past Hokage and what they were doing? Yeah well what they were doing alongside the newly summon past Gokage was preparing to summon team seven back to them from the other dimension.

Now that the war is over, I am so curious about what will happen next. Will peace remain with the war over? Will the Alliance disband and tension remain? Will Naruto FINALLY become Hokage (and a rank other than Genin)? So many questions.

I bow my head to all the deceased though. Obito, my heart goes with you. Be happy with Rin again.

What are your thoughts on this war? Let me know, I’d love to have a serious discussion about it.

So that is it for this week. I am highly anticipating next week’s chapters.

I hope you all enjoyed this update! See you in September! (That was cheesy I know…)

Until next time.

Ja ne.

xx Kat
