Some good news came from Japan, Naruto Shippuden will see the identity of the notorious Tobi before the year ends. Tobi has been a great influence on the whole series, however to some his true identity and story is not known. That’s why after Naruto, Kakashi and Guy continue to fight him, the mask is most likely to crack and show his true identity.
If you haven’t yet been hit by the waves of spoilers from blogs (including this one), forums and social media, then you’re lucky. If you have an idea, I suggest sticking with it, you could be right. Keep on reading to find out that the actual schedule is for the month of december.
Log Horizon is a brand new anime, which started a weeks months ago, featuring a student named Shiroe who gets trapped within the Elder Tales online fantasy RPG game. Around thirty thousand players were trapped in the game in which Shiroe and a few of his friends form a guild called “Log Horizon”. He plans to making the lives of other trapped players better. If you’ve watched Sword Art Online, it’s similar to that but this is a lot more about the actual game.
A game update locks them within the actual game world, Shireo and his friends, Akatsuki and Naotsugu, travel around to do different quests and help their friends. There are manga chapters for the stories, however I still need to get to those. You can watch this new series using the link below:
Naruto Shippuden 340 see’s as Madara, a beast shinobi, escaping the will of others and making and owning his own Edo Tensei. As the Edo Tensei has just been released, Madara’s force and will bring his Edo Tensei body to him and re-attaches to which he’s able to defeat the release of Edo Tensei. He then releases this to which he’s now able to control this ability, the one risk being if there is someone who knows the release, they are able to escape such death. All Edo Tensei souls fly away, Dan comes to aid Tsunade. Tobi begins his plan to take over everything using the Gedo Mazo.
It’s been known that this battle in the anime and manga will be the end. It’s currently on its way there as during an episode of Japanese show Sakiyomi Jan BANG, viewers saw a message from the creator of the series Masashi Kishimoto who had mentioned that the story is in its final phase. The above message reads:
The battle of Naruto and his comrades is in it’s final phase, in the truest sense of the term. About the Ten Tails, about Madara, and then, about Sasuke…I will continue to raise the tension without restraint, in every way I can! Please follow this story of a boy named Naruto a little while longer, I will greatly appreciate it.
It’s hard to say how long the final phase will last, currently no one knows but it’s making all of us nervous. Continue reading →
This week’s Cosplay Monday is from an awesome and new manga, Kill La Kill. Totally worth checking out. Here we have an awesome image of the main character in her full form, to which she holds a transformed weapon which was originally half a scissor. The costume cos2play wears is alive and can speak to her and her alone, after sucking blood from the host it is able to transform into such an awesome form.
Are you getting into the christmas spirit, well Tobi from Naruto definitely is! He’s enjoying his time being an awesome deer. And with that mask, fur and cape, he’ll definitely be delivering some awesome presents soon. I bet him and Mr Clause (possibly Madara?) are cooking up something awesome for all the good kids to get.
Kill La Kill features a young girl, Ryoku Matoi who begins as a transfer student in a fearsome high school, Honnouji Academy. It’s set in Tokyo Bay in a post-apocalyptic Japan which is mostly ruled and dominated by the Student Council President, Satsuki Kiryuin. The other council members wear a special uniform called Goku Uniforms that grants them special superhuman abilities which is used to oppress other students.
Ryoku Matoi wields half a scissor shaped sword, the other half was mysteriously used in order to kill Ryoku’s father. She seeks power in order to find out who killed her father, she finds herself a sailor uniform which she names Senketsu (Literally Meaning Fresh Blood), the uniform grants her special unique abilities which she uses to find out who killed her father as well as relieving the grip which Satsuki has on the town.

I personally only recognised a few of these, if you did better, please do comment and tell me which ones using the comment section below!
Attack on Titan(Shingeki No Kyojin) will be releasing it’s second Attack on Titan Blu-ray which will include an Attack on Titan: Before The Fall manga chapter. It is said to run in Shounen Sirius magazine beginning with the issue that goes on sale on the 24th of August.. It’s mentioned that the manga chapters will incorporate the previous light novels, although it’s most likely to be before Eren’s time.
These three Attack on Titan: Before The Fall prequel light novels which were written by Suzukaze Ryo, and illustrated by Thores Shibamoto, have already been released in Japan. The first follows the creation and development of the famous 3D maneuver gear used by the soldiers while the scouting legion have a hard time fighting off the Titan’s as well as finding any weakness.
The second follows a young man named Kyklop, who somehow was discovered as a newborn in a mass of titan vomit. The third see’s the return of Kyklop as he furiously battles any and all Titans as he battles titans using an older version of their 3D maneuver gear. So what do you think about all of this, will you be reading these as well as the manga or will you be ignoring them.
