Goodbye, Bleach.

 

Naruto has ended. Now it’s time for Bleach to say its goodbyes to the manga world.

Not that I cared much for the series anyway, especially in this last arc. I mean, really… What was Kubo thinking? I don’t even want to know cos I see it in the last arc.

I’m rather disappointed. Bleach and Naruto both had rushed endings. I would have liked to learn more about some characters, like Isshin, Ryuuken, and even Uryu. I wanted to see what they did during those 10 years. Ryuuken never spoke much, but I really wanted to learn more about him (mostly cos I had a rather, er, fangirl crush on him). Chad… well, that was a surprise, but I guess it’s a good ending for him, too. He looked even more chiseled and dashingly handsome xD Bwahaha, gotta give props to Kubo’s artwork. Loved it, even until the end.

Life After Naruto

Naruto Shippuden Characters

It’s almost the end of June, and it’s been nearly a year since Naruto ended. I decided to write a post about my life after Naruto has ended.

When Naruto ended, I just… let it go for a while. I didn’t think back about it. All was said and done, and that was that. I only started the series about 2.5 years ago, so I might not be considered a ‘veteran fan’ like a lot of people out there, and I may not have related to the manga as much as I do with other series I’ve read and am reading.

Or maybe it’s because Naruto hasn’t truly ended. There are movies and mini series still coming out along with light novels. I’ve read some of the awesomely translated novels online and I plan to collect them when they’re here in the States. I’m also following Naruto Gaiden, which I’ll be reviewing soon here on the blog. I guess I just don’t feel like Naruto has ended. I’ve been rereading Naruto and rewatching the anime. The anime isn’t over yet, too, so maybe I just haven’t really felt like Naruto has truly ended for me.

Speaking of reading and watching Naruto again, I have mixed feelings about some of the stuff that went down. First, there’s the whole thing with Obito Uchiha. At first, I was like, DAMN, that was one hell of a twist! Then, I was just like… seriously, why didn’t Obito realize that he could go through objects like when that huge rock fell on him? Or when Madara was manipulating him? Sure, he was injured, but I think he could have figured out Madara’s intentions. Unless Obito was just that pure of a character. After he was revealed and he ‘changed’ while he was fighting with Naruto, Obito just seemed… cheap to me. There just didn’t seem like anything left of his character, almost like it was just unnecessary for him to be there.

Disney Isn’t To Blame For Your Love Life

100-Day Challenge – Post #21

This post is going to be a little rant of mine, and I know Disney isn’t manga or the usual Japanese anime, but they do create animated movies, so I’d like to discuss it here.

I recently read a few people’s stories on how Disney just let them down in their love lives. And it got me very annoyed. You know, I’m the type who just lets people do as they please because it’s their life. Who am I to tell them what to believe, what to think, etc.? Well, it still applies here, but it doesn’t change the fact that I’m rather annoyed by all this slamming against Disney.

I love Disney, and I do admire Walt Disney as a person. If I could, I’d love to talk to him about all that he’s created, his legacy. Now, about his movies and the other movies that Disney has created: They’re not dating manuals. They don’t have to be love bibles for people. They don’t have to be expectations people have about love. You know who’s to blame for the “love problems” people go through? It’s the people themselves. What the hell do Disney movies have to do with your love life? Continue reading Disney Isn’t To Blame For Your Love Life
