Chapter 641: You Two are the Main Act! Click to read!

The Setup

The 2nd and forth Hogake make plans for a counter attack, meanwhile Madara and the Hashirama are duking it out, because Madara can’t seem to get over his man crush on Hashirama. The ninjas are all afraid until Shikamaru gives them a pep talk. Sasuke and Naruto decide to strike first since the 2nd and 4th are busy making plans. They make another combined flaming Rasenshuriken and the 2nd and 4th teleport Obito into the attack. Sakura asks what they are doing and she replies that they are laughing.

Chapter 641 end

My thoughts

Okay so Madara needs to figure out exactly what he’s doing on the battle field, cause right now he just seems to be fangirling all over Hashirama. The pep talk to Shika was nice, and it was a good touch that everyone else seemed to understand just how worthless they were in this fight. I like the idea of Shikamaru becoming Hokage, I honestly think he would make a good one, but I don’t see him wanting to do the job. In his words it’s just “too troublesome.”

Next we have the fight between Juubito and the fantastic 4 as I now like to call them. So Naruto and Sasuke are like, man you guys take too long to plan in the middle of a war. I was actually happy to see the 2 of them basically say “F this! We’re gonna go attack now.” Of course Tobirama and Minato put there plan into action and pull off a nice combined attack. And no, I don’t think this was enough to take Juubito down. I hate it when you’re in a fight and all you get are talking points, I understand that to take on something this powerful you need to strategize, but no one wants two people standing around talking during an epic war. So I’m glad Naruto and Sasuke jumped the gun a bit.

So my big question here is where the hell is the 3rd?! We’ve got Tobirama and Minato helping Sasuke and Naruto. Hashirama is fighting off Madara’s advances. Where the hell did the old man go?! Did Kishi just forget about him? He summons all the Kage to the battle field, they kick ass for a bit, and then he forgets one?! And this is the Hokage we know the most about! Seriously?!

So Temari showed up in this chapter along with Sakura and Hinata. It was good to see them again, but there is really so much going on right now. I feel like we should do a “Return of the Jedi” thing here. You know, how they had the 3 battles going on at the end. The space battle with all the Imperial and Rebel Navy’s going at it, the battle for the control of the shield bunker for Endor, and finally the battle for Vader’s soul on the Death Star. They cut to different ones so that you weren’t stuck in the same place and getting too bored with what was going on where, and with your favorite characters.

All in all I give this chapter a B+

A good read but I want more.

Chapter 640 review

Konoha Corner Shop


Chapter 640: Finally

Chapter 640: Finally

Chapter 640: Finally! Click to read.

The set up

Obito is about to kill Sasuke and Naruto

Naruto grabs Minato with his nine tails hands

Obito and the Juubi are fighting for control so Obito attacks himself

Minato tries to use awesome new jutsu… fails

The Juubi is slowly taking over and Obito is being ripped away, literally.

Obito has flash backs that make help him return to himself and take control over his new body. (Which actually looks kinda bad assed.)

Minato attempts to take him down, but now that Obito is in control he easily counters Minato removing one of his arms in the process.

Minato teleports back to Sasuke and Naruto only to realize that Obito’s attack is stuck to his body.

The attack explodes, the chapter ends.

My Review

Honestly, I felt that this chapter like a lot of the others just wasn’t pulling me in as much. I mean there was plenty to like about this chapter, the struggle between Obito and the Juubi was nice, but not a lot is really happening.

What is going on with Madara and this “ace” he has?

Why is it taking so long for Orochimaru and the Kage squad to get to the battle field?

Obito is so overly powerful that I have no idea now how they plan to stop him, will the alliance have to team up with Madara to take him down?

Will Minato give his nine tails powers back to Kurama?

I feel like there is too much that is not being explained.

And finally what does this mean for the tailed beasts who are part of the Juubi right now?

Can Obito hear them?

Everyone seems to be crying about where Anko and Yamato are. Didn’t Yamato get embedded into the Juubi when it was a statue?

And Anko, seriously?! You think the sudden appearance of Anko to the war is going to have massive implications to what is going on right now?!

Lately the manga has been action packed, but moving at a snails pace. I hope this trend doesn’t continue, because I really like Naruto, but it’s starting to get boring.

This is just my opinion though. Let me know what you think by leaving a comment.

Episode 155 news, Black Friday & Cyber Monday deals!!!


“Evangelion 3.0” Breaks Box Office Record in Japan

Even Hollywood entertainment bible Variety has taken note, and has reported that Shinji, Asuka, Rei and co. have just sold US$13.9 million, making this the biggest opening weekend of any movie this year in Japan. Part of that success is that the film was playing everywhere (224 screens in all) and even took over all nine screens at the Shinjuku Wald 9 theater with shows starting at 6am on opening day. Unreported in the Variety article is the “repeat viewing” effect, where wild Eva fans would exit the theater only to turn around and march right back in to watch it over again to try and figure out what the heck they had just seen. Other fan reactions are ranging from “WTF” to “Nani kore?” (“What is this?”). While it’s not a bad movie, it’s certainly not a conventional one either. The fact that it is likely to out-perform the previous two Rebuild of Evangelion films is kind of remarkable in that respect. Are you surprised by this or is it to be expected from Eva?

Evangelion Rhinestones Offered For iPhones

Lets face it, the image caught my attention just like it did yours.

Believe it of not Eva fans coan now decorate their decorate the home button of their iPhone with something a bit gaudy, Strapya has begun offering Eva 3.0 cubic zirconia gems and gold color finish coins in the motifs of NERV, Seele, Ayanami Rei, Ikari Shinji, Asuka Langley, and Makinami Mari Illustrious. Both varieties are selling for 945 yen (US $11.61) each. To me this just sounds like a waste of money, but what do you think?

“Kung Fu Hustle” Director/Star Adapts “Journey to the West”

“God of Manga” Osamu Tezuka became associated with his adaptation of classic spiritual epic Journey to the West such as the biographical anime about him, I Am Son Goku, referred to it. Akira Toriyama gained international fame with a little spoof called Dragon Ball. Now Kung Fu Hustle’s martial arts comedy master Stephen Chow is ready to put his mark on the oft adapted legend. Chow is on board to direct, write and produce the film. Current plans don’t have him starring in the picture. The Chinese production is offering something on-par with Hollywood blockbuster standards. Do you trust Stephen Chow to do a good job, or is this just another flop waiting to happen?

Dark Horse Previews “The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia”

While Dark Horse’s release of The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia, came out back in August hitting #1 status on Amazon’s best seller list. The hardcover tome version is due out on January 29, 2013. But is this really worth shelling out shelling those hard earned rupies? Hyrule Historia packs nearly 300 pages of Zelda history, from the much-debated timeline to creator interviews, concept art, an exclusive Akira Himekawa comic, and more. But the question of whether or not it’s truly worth it is up for you to decide. So use your Triforce of Wisdom well and let us know what you decide.

Gamer Plays “CoD: Black Ops II” for Five and a Half Days

Gamer Okan Kaya of Australia (28) went for a wolrd gaming record on CoD Black Ops 2 recently. The good news is he was not sent to the hospital and is just fine. The bad news? He was playing CoD and not Halo 4. (Looking forward to your hateraid in the comments below.) Following new Guinness regulations that allowed him a ten-minute break every hour (which could also be taken consecutively). So he operated with a bit of a safety net on this one. There was plenty of attention given to Kaya’s marathon multiplayer session, like bringing in new witnesses every four hours, with video footage of the marathon being sent to Guinness for verification. While it hasn’t been confirmed as the world record yet, the previous longest time was held by two Canadian gamers playing the Resistance games for 120 hours and 7 minutes. Gotta love those Canadian gamers.

“It was a lot of fun, but I’m glad it’s over,” Kaya said after the event was over.

It seems FPS’s are all the rage when it comes to marathoning right now, but if you were going to marathon a game what would it be and why? And how long do you think you would last?

Is Microsoft Planning An “Xbox Live” TV Set-Top Box for 2013?

Let me be honest, I don’t understand most of what was said in this article, but you might so I’m just gonna be lazy and copy and paste what I read and maybe you can translate for me.

Hot on the heels of the first reports of the specifications for the next Xbox console last weekend, tech site The Verge is reporting on multiple confirmations received from sources whithin Microsoft that are acknowledging the existence of an Xbox-branded set-top box for televisions in the same vein as a Roku or OnLive box, which in theory would allow for casual gaming instead of the more complete gaming experience found on current consoles and is being slated for next year’s holiday season alongside the next Xbox console.

Xbox Live Entertainment

The box itself would be running select parts of the recently released Windows 8 operating system, inline with Microsoft’s internal “One Windows, Many Devices” strategy currently employed with the Microsoft Surface tablet and Windows Phone 8 mobile operating system. The company is also said to be heavily considering the addition of a cellular telephony component for porting to its latest mobile operating system and future devices for a complete Xbox Live experience as well as licensing the software to television manufacturers as an integrated “smart TV” platform with gaming capabilities. While Microsoft has yet to even acknowledge the specifications of its next console, the idea that it would be adopting a simpler set-top box and possible smart TV platform as a secondary alternative for those that aren’t dedicated gamers isn’t all that surprising, considering its current direction with Xbox Live being more focused on general entertainment options for streaming content (including an app for Crunchyroll) than straightforward gaming, especially with today’s earlier domain transfer leak adding credence to the rumor, which includes a domain for “Xbox Live TV”. For its part, Microsoft has released a statement neither confirming nor explicitly denying the plans:

“Xbox 360 has found new ways to extend the console lifecycle by introducing controller-free experiences with Kinect and re-inventing the console with a new dashboard and new entertainment content partnerships. We are always thinking about what is next for our platform and how to continue to defy the lifecycle convention.”

 With Microsoft’s plans for next year coming into focus, what does everyone think about this?

Toonami Schedules Naruto’s Return

You wanted it, you got it! Guess whose back on the Toonami block?! Yup, that hyper lovable ninja is back! For those of you groaning about how it’s not Shippuden, just remember that Disney owns the rights to that series right now. So Cartoon Network can’t touch it. On December 1st our favorite ramen eating orange ninja returns to his Toonami home. This will be all uncut, so there will be blood this time around. The plan is to start from the very beginning of the series and go through the whole story. Keep your fingers crossed that CN can work out a deal with Disney to grab up Shippuden before the 80 episode filler arc starts. Here’s a look at the schedule once it starts back up.

The schedule going into effect includes:

General Anime and tech news

VIDEO: Eva 3.0 Promo Declares “It’s Not Anime, It’s Evangelion!”

Alright so the 17th debut of the new movie has declared “It’s Not Anime, It’s Evangelion!” Along with this commercial there is also a six minute, 38 second preview of Evangelion 3.0 involving Asuka fighting a new angel in space.

So are you guys excited about the new Eva movie? Why or why not?

Do you think all the merchandise in Japan is overkill at this point?

What are your opinions on Evangelion?

“Pokédex” Makes Its Way to iOS in Japan

The Pokémon Company is releasing a Pokédex for iOS on Apple devices in Japan. The app uses 3D models similar to those in Pokédex 3D on 3DS, and offers information in six languages on Pokémon from various regions. It doesn’t all come with one single purchase, though. The base app offers info on Pokémon from the Unova region, and will run at ¥170 (about $2) when it hits the store on November 16. In order to get info on Pokémon listed in the Kanto Dex, Johto Dex, Hoenn Dex, and Sinnoh Dex, it’ll cost an extra ¥500 (about $6) a pop.

Is this a step in the right direction for Pokémon?

Would you buy this?

Is it a fair price?

Or I there too much Pokémon merch already?

Japanese Salarymen Keep Their Farts in Check with Special Undies

Okay, there was no way we weren’t talking about this. Here’s a story that I think hits close to home for congers across the world. Tech manufacturer Seiren is rocking in Japan! Especially popular among salary men, Seiren’s underwear suppresses that oh-so embarrassing smell thanks to absorbent ceramic particles. Seiren spokeswoman Nami Yoshida said about the unique undergarments:

“It took us a few years to develop the first deodorant pants that are comfortable enough to wear in daily life but efficient in quickly eliminating strong smells. At first we thought about selling them to those who require nursing care and to hospitals. But to our surprise, lots of ordinary people, like businessmen who are in positions that require them to see people on a daily basis, bought them.” In addition to underwear, Seiren also offers socks for smelly feet and shirts that block out armpit stank among their 22 odor-killing items. Be honest, could you use a pair or two of these?

What are your thoughts on this product?

Is it revolutionary or just another crazy product from Japan?

Should these be handed out at cons?

And finally would you buy this?

“Detective Conan” Movie Revealed as First “Shonen Sunday” 2013 Anime Project

This year’s 50th issue of Shonen Sunday promised a storm of 2013 anime projects outlined over the course of its next eight issues. The funny part is that they aren’t starting with something new like Hiromu Arakawa’s Silver Spoon or Rumiko Takahashi’s newest series Rinne. (Yup, all you Inu Yasha/Ranma ½ fans. She’s got a new one.) Instead, a 17th Detective Conan movie has been confirmed for 2013. More details will be outlined in the 51st issue, which come out on November 21st. (Yeah, Shonen Sunday comes out on Wednesdays, that made us laugh too.) The mystery manga has been running in Shonen Sunday since 1994, and volume 78 will be out December 18th.

Are you glad to see Detective Conan/Case Closed getting some love?

Think it should have been a different series?

 What series would you have picked for an anime movie for 2013?

A Fan Art Celebration of Crunchyroll Catalog Classic “Code Geass”

Crunchyroll hosts a huge selection of anime in their site, in an effort to let you know about some great shows that may have slipped under your radar they promote a new series for you to check out. (I don’t know if it’s weekly or monthly, pretty sure it’s weekly, but I’d rather not post false information.) This time they’re promoting Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion.(If you haven’t heard of this series already, then I have no sympathy for you.)  Just in case you haven’t heard of this huge ass franchise, here’s what you need to know: A collaboration between manga superstars CLAMP and animation studio Sunrise, (You know those guys that do all the Gundam shows.) Code Geass features an all-star cast, slick animation with giant robot battles, teenagers, and school uniforms. (Basically everything you need to make your own kick ass series at home. Are you listening fanfic authors? Your welcome!^^) With 2 seasons, several OVA, multiple manga series, a truckload of merch that’s still being churned out today, it’s safe to say that Code Geass is one of the most popular anime that has been created in the last few years. As part of the Code Geass campaign, Crunchy collected some lovely fanart from the talented artists over at Pixiv for your viewing pleasure. Make sure to go to the page and check it all out, because it’s way too much for us to post in one blog. I mean shit all the Eva pics were crazy massive in the amount.

Have you heard of Code Geass?

What did you think of it if you did watch it?

If you haven’t is it something you might check out?

What would you like to se promoted next on Crunchyroll?

3rd “Berserk” Film Rated “18+” in Japan

Okay, so Berserk Golden Age Arc III: Descent, the final part of the Berserk anime film trilogy, is scheduled to be released in Japan in early 2013. And EIRIN (Film Classification and Rating Committee of Japan) has described it as “the film for adults” and rated it “R 18+” (for persons aged 18 and above only, No one under 18 admitted) due to “extremely strong depictions of sexual activity.” Basically this means Japanese youth under 18 will not be able to see the film in the theaters and probably rent the DVD of the film at the rental stores. The list doesn’t mention which scene or scenes fall under their rating policy. To give you an idea of what this means shows like, Smile PreCure! Ehon no naka wa minna chiguhagu!, Star Driver The Movie, Macross FB 7: Ore no Uta o Kike!, and 009 RE:CYBORG, are rated “G” (General, suitable for all ages.) Even the pessimistic short film Kyoshinhei Tokyo ni Arawaru (developed by the Evangelion creator, Hideaki Anno) about Tokyo and the world destroyed by the giant warriors is rated “G”. Honestly, I want to watch it now just because I wanna know what scene it is. I’m 30 and a perv, I don’t care.

Does this rating seem fair?

Are you suddenly more interested in watching this movie now because of the rating and the reason behind it?

Award-Nominated American Comic Artist Ignites Cosplay Controversy

Okay, so for those of you that didn’t know about Cosplay appreciation day or what really got it started, here is some info for you. There’s a notion that some people participate in geek media or events with the aims of gaining fame and attention. I hear it a lot this person is in this Cosplay cause they want attention. It’s even been said about me, and to a point it is true. I want attention when I Cosplay, but not to promote myself, but because I love the characters I portray. Which is when I started trying to garner attention for the podcasts, I started cosplaying less. Well, Eisner Award-nominated American comic artist Tony Harris, really leapt into that minefield this week with his comments about cosplayers. In addition to commenting on the feminist implications, the illustrator of Ex Machina and Star Man called out cosplayers for stealing convention goers’ attention for themselves, that otherwise may have been paid to artists and writers. The FaceBook rant that set off controversy stated, and I had to make A LOT of typo and punctuation fixes to this rant:

I can’t remember if I’ve said this before, but I’m gonna say it anyway. I don’t give a crap. I appreciate a pretty Gal as much as the next Hetero Male. Sometimes I even go in for some racy type stuff (Keeping the comments PG for my Ladies sake) but dammit, dammit, dammit I am so sick and tired of the whole COSPLAY-Chiks. I know a few who are actually pretty cool-and BIG Shocker, love and read Comics. So as in all things, they are the exception to the rule. Here’s the statement I wanna make, based on THE RULE: “Hey! Quasi-Pretty-NOT-Hot-Girl, you are more pathetic than the REAL Nerds, who YOU secretly think are REALLY PATHETIC. But we are onto you. Some of us are aware that you are ever so average on an everyday basis. But you have a couple of things going your way. You are willing to become almost completely Naked in public, and yer either skinny (Well, some or most of you, THINK you are.) or you have Big Boobies. Notice I didn’t say GREAT Boobies? You are what I refer to as “CON-HOT”. Well not by my estimation, but according to a LOT of average Comic Book Fans who either RARELY speak to, or NEVER speak to girls. Some Virgins, ALL unconfident when it comes to girls, and the ONE thing they all have in common? They are being preyed on by YOU. You have this really awful need for attention, for people to tell you you’re pretty, or Hot, and the thought of guys pleasuring themselves to the memory of you hanging on them with your glossy open lips, promising them the Moon and the Stars of pleasure, just makes your head vibrate. After many years of watching this shit go down every 3 seconds around or in front of my booth or table at ANY given Con in the country, I put this together. Well not just me. We are LEGION. And here it is, THE REASON WHY ALL THAT, sickens us: BECAUSE YOU DON’T KNOW SHIT ABOUT COMICS, BEYOND WHATEVER GOOGLE IMAGE SEARCH YOU DID TO GET REF ON THE MOST MAINSTREAM CHARACTER WITH THE MOST REVEALING COSTUME EVER. And also, if ANY of these guys that you hang on tried to talk to you out of that Con? You wouldn’t give them the fucking time of day. Shut up you damned liar, no you would not. Lying, Liar Face. You’re not Comics. You’re just the thing that all the Comic Book, AND mainstream press flock to at Cons. And the real reason for the Con, and the damned costumes you’re parading around in? That would be Comic Book Artists, and Comic Book Writers who make all that shit up.

Can I firstly just say if you’re going to bitch people out and put on the holier than thou mantle on your Facebook page (which is view-able to the public by the way) That you at least type it up in word or something first so you can DO  A FUCKING SPELL CHECK!!! I hate wasting time redoing someone’s shitty post. Okay back to the actual story now. Needless to say, people were pissed. Especially Gail Simone; (Writer on Birds of Prey, Secret Six, Deadpool.) who called for a Cosplay Appreciation Day to refute the opinion. Just another reason why Deadpool is awesome!

So how did you participate in Cosplay Appreciation day?

Did you know why it was started?

How do you feel about it now that you have heard about this story?

VIDEO: France and Japan Team Up to Create Mind-Controlled Robot!

A team of researchers from France and Japan are developing ways to control robots using the power of thought alone. Seriously though make sure to check out the video for this. SourceFed recently covered a story similar to this where a man now has a robotic arm that he controls with his thoughts. (Link in the YouTube description below to that story.) So the medical implications are not only staggering, but already exist.

How cool is this new tech?

What would you do if you had a robot you could control with your thoughts?

VIDEO: Promo Animation Showcases New “Record of Lodoss War: Successor of the Legend” Game

Okay I’m hoping that I’m not the only one who remembers how bad assed the Record of Lodoss War Series was, and yes I mean both of them. Classic RPG-based fantasy novels turned anime Record of Lodoss War are back in a new game. You can’t really tell from the exciting, animated promo video, but Record of Lodoss War: Successor of the Legend is a Game On online card game, currently in closed beta. Not really a fan of card games or online games here, but I loved this series and I am hoping this could lead to more anime or a rediscovery of the series by a new generation of fans. Trust me, if you like Lord of the Rings style shows that deal with Elves, Warlocks, Wizards, Dwarves and Knights. You need to check this series out!

Do you know about Record of Lodoss War?

Does this article make you interested?

BioWare’s Reaction to “Mass Effect 2” in “Black Ops 2” PC Copies

For those of you that didn’t know, the PC version of Black Ops II had a bit of a fuck up. When you open up the game and grab the second disc you would be surprised to see Mass Effect 2 instead of Black Ops 2. Let’s say you’re were one of the millions of people that sprung for a retail copy of Call of Duty Black Ops 2 on PC and you were all set to rush home and get going on the multiplayer that night. You get home, open the box and you start the install process, when all of sudden after being prompted to insert the second disc, you aren’t seeing the install continue, but the opening intro to Mass Effect 2, even though the second disc is clearly labeled for Black Ops 2. That’s what ended up happening to a few thousand people that bought the game during the Tuesday launch festivities for the game. While the actual reasoning for the mix up hasn’t been discovered and publisher Activision is remaining eerily quiet, BioWare is taking it all in stride and being incredibly good sports about the situation, by releasing the following statement and offer for those affected:

“Rumor has it that about a thousand customers who purchased Call of Duty: Black Ops II for PC today were also treated to a surprise copy of Mass Effect 2. If you were one of the affected, chances are you thought it was a mistake, but we prefer to think that it was an omen, and when the universe talks, you should listen. If the universe thinks that you should be playing Mass Effect right now, who are we to argue? In fact, we want to help! The first fifty fans affected by this phenomenon to send us a picture holding their special disc 2 will receive a code for a FREE PC copy of Mass Effect Trilogy. Remember, in order to qualify, YOU must be in the picture, and disc 2 of your Call of Duty: Black Ops II must be visible. Got it? Then send your photo to and you could be playing your very own Mass Effect Trilogy in time for the weekend!”

Just another reason why we love the guys over at BioWare!!! You know, aside from Mass Effect being FUCKING AWESOME!!!! With this offer being extended to those affected in a fun way, it goes to show that what could have been a PR disaster for Activision got turned into a golden opportunity by Bioware to sell more people on the Mass Effect franchise and cross over those players that may not have normally considered the game.

Do you think BioWare handled this well?

What do you think Activision’s response should be?

If you don’t know the synopsis for season 2 check it out on Crunchyroll by clicking on the link for the story on our website, cause I’m typed too damn much already!

So the question has to be asked, Pokémon or Digimon? (I look forward to the upcoming war.)
