New Chapters

Posted in Manga with tags , , on January 28, 2010 by kumoriha

New manga chapters are out again. In Bleach and Katekyo Hitman Reborn, the captains and Tsuna are getting completely dominated by Aizen and Byakuran. Oh yeah, spoilers. Oh well. This is kind of depressing, actually, but well, we’ll just leave it to deux ex machina to get our main characters’ asses out of trouble.

I really really hope Bleach will end soon. At the very least kill off Hitsugaya. He’s getting annoying beyond belief, with his spouting of one-liners and trying to be cool. In the end he just ends up half dead until a plot hole gets dug and he gains massive hax powers. Rinse and repeat.

It’s really hard to find pens that are finer than 0.5mm. Managed to get some 0.38mm pens finally. Also, the Japanese slang book I have is too full of sexual terms. Making it almost useless. *sigh*

Random Japanese Word of the Day:
俺(ore) – the very very informal and masculine “I”. Actually, while I’m at it, I’ll go over the other I’s. The most formal is 私(watakushi) which is used in very formal situations, like business and such. Then is 私(watashi) which is the same kanji, but pronounced differently. This is used frequently in most situations with strangers or respectable people. For guys, 僕(boku) is informal, and is used usually as teens and such. Females have the very informal あたし(atashi), which I believe is usually used among close friends. The same with the male 俺(ore), although anime and manga use it a lot. Don’t learn from them, or you’ll end up like Dillon.

Does anyone read/watch Bleach? I do. And it’s painful everytime a new chapter comes out, but I guess I’m just a masochist.

I’d say Kubo Tite is running out of ideas, but that’s probably not true. More like, his ideas are getting worse and worse, slowly deteriorating into a pile of radioactive waste.

Bleach suffers from what I call the “Manga-series-that-is-too-long-and-lacks-original-content” disease. The symptoms are self explanatory. It’s really annoying when the cycle of: 1. Character fights, 2. Gets owned, 3. Reinforcements come, 4. Reinforcements get owned, 5. Character comes back with deux ex machina, now rinse and repeat.

For the love of (death) god(s), just let Hitsugaya die already.

Short rant over. I talk about anime too much.
