The cover is Franky arm wrestling a Gorilla while Robin helping the Gorilla to win, it's a ok cover page. Is it just me or is Robin's feet is a little bigger then the other one? (I do like the sumo hair)
After arriving, Monkey D. Luffy is attacked by Tashigi who in Smoker's body and easily beat her/him. Then Smoker who in Tashigi's body attack Luffy (much to Luffy's amusement) but Luffy easily evades his/her attacks and says he will fight Smoker when he is back in his own body. Suddenly, everyone on the battlefield see a huge ball of slime landed on the ship that the G-5 Marines stole. After being ignited by a Marine's flamethrower, it exploded violently, destroying the ship and "killing" the Marines that was on the ship. Afterwards more huge slime balls began raining from the sky on all sides and the people watching were being overwhelmed by the toxic gas emitted from them. CC then reveals himself on top of the destroyed ship, explaining his pet's ability to transfer itself from the other side of the island. Zoro, Brook, and Sanji in Nami's body see Slime spitting pieces of itself across the distance. CC explains that once all the pieces are here, the whole area will turn into another poison gas incident. Luffy then manages to grab CC before he could do a flashback, much to his shock.
It was a OK chapter, nothing really awesome. (Just set up)
I'll give this chapter a 3 out of 5, so what did you guys think of the chapter?
1 is really bad, 2 is bad but have some good scenes, 3 is OK, 4 is good and 5 is Awesome!
Also please support the official release
One Piece is about Monkey D. Luffy in a quest to find the One Piece and become Pirate King to fulfill a childhood promise, Fairy Tail is mostly about Natsu Dragneel in a quest to find his missing father. The first problem I have with Fairy Tail is that Natsu is the only one who still have a goal, his friends have either complete there goal doing there arc or in the second chapter. Lucy Heartfilia's goal was to join Fairy Tail and she did it in a chapter. Gray Fullbuster's goal was to kill Deliora who destroy his village, but it was change to make friends. Erza Scarlet's goal was pretty much save Jellal and her friends and she did it.
To me, there goals just come to them way to easy. I feel that main characters goals should be completed near the end of the story, not just in an one arc. It would be ok if they get another goal.
In One Piece, Luffy and his friends have goals that will last them for the entire series and also some of there goals have change. Nami's goal is to create a map of the world, which no one in One Piece have done before. Zoro's goals is to be the best swordsman in the world and help Luffy to be Pirate King. Usopp's goals is to become a brave warrior and visit the land of the giants (funny thing is that he basically completed his first goal without even knowing it) Sanji's goal is to go to the All Blue. All there goals are impossible to reach or hard to achieve, making there journey interesting.
Fairy Tail's arcs are not memorable, there no part of the arc that have a "this is Fairy Tail" type of moment. (It just doesn't stand out to me) Like in the Fighting Festival Arc, in the end with everyone sending off Laxus. It didn't impact me, since Laxus was trying to kill everyone in the town and he was acting like a jerk all the time. The arc didn't built up to or give me a reason to care for the scene
With One Piece's arcs, they built up to the scene (sometime before the arc). Like in the CP9 arc, with the Going Merry send off. It impact me, since I can understand how they feel. The arc show me how important the Merry was to the Strawhats.
Well, I have other reasons why I prefer One Piece over Fairy Tail, but these are the major ones. Both are good series, but I feel Fairy Tail is lacking. I have completely stop watching and reading Fairy Tail, I plan on one day coming back to it (but its extremely unlikely).
Well, I got that off my back (sorry for any typo), so which series do you guys prefer
Mahō Sensei Negima! is one of my favorite shonen manga, after a nine years run it end today. The ending was pretty good, but I do wish Akamatsu-sensei would make a sequel.
The series is so awesome, almost all the main characters are enjoyable. I really enjoy the character development and the action, also the comedy is pretty good. At first glance it may look like a standard harem, but it more then that. It about a kid who try to follow in his father's foot steps, whom happen to teach a English class full of girls and he just ten years old (also he have magical powers). Unlike other harems main guy, Negi is not a spineless coward (ok, at first he was) and also have a very good reason he not into his harem girls, because he only ten years old. Even the girls are not stereotype (ok, they are but only a little bit)
From Anime News Network:
This year's 10th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine is announcing on Wednesday that Ken Akamatsu will end his Negima! Magister Negi Magi manga after three more chapters. However, he will first take a two-issue hiatus to prepare for the end, so the series will return in this year's 13th issue of the magazine on February 29. The finale will not come until this year's 15th issue in March, at the earliest.
One of my favorite manga is ending in three chapters, I'm so sad and mad. There so many unanswered questions, why do it to end and leave me in the dark. I'm hoping Akamatsu make a sequel manga to answer all the unanswered questions (he can't do it in three chapters) But I still have a blast at reading it, so I not that mad (Also on the bright side, I save some money LOL!)
