My Hero Academia Chapters 161 & 162 Review - One Who is Worthy & Smouldering Flames

Written by Shiggins

More pain, more gain!

And finally, my wish is granted as we finish off the overly-long arc by switching over to the supporting characters I have been longing for. It was great to spend time with Midoriya but the story has been a bit heavy and stuck for a while now, and we're ready to get a good laugh from the nutjob of the classroom!

Why does he look so much like Kirishima?

Top 10 Naruto Fights

Written by Shiggins

Another year, another Naruto.

To remember the reason this blog even exists, it is time to celebrate the legacy of Naruto once more with a battle list! Yes, I am writing down the top 10 battles to feature in the Naruto franchise and judging them by their variety, impact on the franchise and any other elements I think are worth mentioning.

Obviously, spoilers ahead. And canon works only. No filler here.

My Hero Academia Chapters 160 & 161 Review - Expressway & A Bright Future

Written by Shiggins

And into the night, they gently disappear...

I must say, it has been a while since Hero Academia filled me with such a wave of emotion. It hasn't been bad by any means, but I definitely was starting to feel boredom and fatigue with these villains and their one-note attitudes. Thankfully, we finally got some great intrigue, followed by a hugely tragic and inspirational goodbye...

Your hat is exceptional but you need to step up your mask game, son.

My Hero Academia Chapter 159 Review - The End!!!!

Written by Shiggins

Its over... or is it?!

Just when you thought this arc could finally take a breather and relax, a last minute twist has appeared and it looks like we could be up for at least one more big piece of bad news before the hammer drops and we can hopefully enjoy watching Midoriya go back to class. Not that this arc hasn't been really fun, but I think we're in need of a a break.

As soon as its revealed that Kurono is handsome, suddenly he appears all the time.

Top 10 Dragon Ball Super Characters

Written by Shiggins

I love Super.

Surpassing GT, the original series, and even some elements of Z, Dragon Ball Super has blown me away and I have to show my adoration of it somehow. And is there any way better than a Top 10? So without wasting any more time, here are my Top 10 characters introduced in Super.

Characters introduced in Original, Z or GT are not eligible for this list, so you won't be seeing Future Trunks or Frieza here. Also, the two newest films, Battle of Gods and Resurrection F, are being counted in Super canon so you can expect to see them appear on this list.

This group could literally get an entire arc all to themselves, and I wouldn't say a word against it.

Top 10 Fairy Tail Arcs

Written by Shiggins

Fairy Tail time!

With the series officially over, unless you go to Tumblr or Hiro Mashima's Twitter page where the love and art never stops, its time to take a look back and see which arcs did the best and which did the least-best. I waited to do this because it helps to have some perspective when it comes to a list like this, and now the time has come!

Note: Spoilers ahead. Also, only arcs from the canon manga will be counted here. So no "Key of the Starry Sky" or "Eclipse Celestial Spirits" arcs here. (Even though they are pretty damn good).

Shame we never got an arc entirely about this, isn't it?

My Hero Academia Chapter 158 Review - Chisaki's Abnormal Compassion

Written by Shiggins

Remember my complaints about flashbacks?

Well, it is impossible for me not to bring that up once again as Chapter 158 delves more into Overhaul and really goes on and on and on. On the bright side though, those that love white boxes full of text will be absolutely thrilled with this chapter!

Geez, I hope not.

Danganronpa V3 Characters: My Official Ranking

Written by Shiggins

That's right, my words make it official!

As a connoisseur of the Danganronpa franchise, I believe it is well within my right to pass judgement upon the franchise's newest instalment (spoiler alert; it's good!) and thus, it is time for me to do so... in the form of a list! Since V3 has one of the best casts of the Danganronpa series, I decided to rank the characters from worst to best. You might disagree but... well, you aren't me.

Note: Minor spoilers ahead.

I promise, this is the last Danganronpa article! ...For now. Maybe.

My Hero Academia Chapter 157 Review - Infinite 100%

Written by Shiggins

Midoriya (about to) SMASH!

Chapters like this are always quite a bugger to review. Not because they are bad or good, but because they usually just lead up to the next chapter which is when we'll see something really big and crazy! So as you read this review, keep in mind that I saw this as a set-up chapter. 

When you're so angry that you literally ignore the rules of manga panels.

My Hero Academia Chapter 155 & 156 Review - Saviours, Rescuees and a Hero's Whereabouts & The Rescuee's Power

Written by Shiggins

Okay, hopefully this is the last double review for a while.

Regular weekly reviews for this series should begin as normal starting next week, as I have been neglecting the reviewing of this franchise for a while because of other responsibilities going on. Some personal, some petty. However, enough about me. Let's talk about Me... Diroya! Get it? Midoriya! But... me. Haha... Please love me.

Man, when Tumblr finds out about this guy...
