Free Talk: HnR 63, Naruto 668, Bleach 572, and OP 741

Someone requested for HnR comments and it is too ‘empty’ if it is only one so I put in comments for the big three of WSJ, too. For Kobayashi 35, probably next week or I might lump the summary up with the new chapter since I’m still looking for some enthusiasm for me to do that one Hehe, hopefully in the next chapter, he'll beat up that guy for making his girl do that =P

Comments under the cut since one can be spoiled just by reading the first sentence.

Hirunaka No Ryuusei 63 – So, Suzume slipped out that she’s going steady with Mamura. Yukichi turns out to be very overprotective and it is time to check out the boyfriend. Apparently, he is easy to impress just by some ‘formal’ gift for house visiting. Since it is Mamura’s father who told him to bring that, hehe, I think he really wants to impress Suzume’s household ^^ After all, Mamura’s father is rooting for the two. Even if he is overprotective, I’m surprised that her uncle let them stay in their room for privacy instead of well, the living room. Of course, the door is open so that they won’t do any hanky-panky. I honestly don’t know what Suzume is thinking to make Mamura look at her uncle’s album. At the start of that, I already have a feeling that they would stumble on Shishio’s picture, and she did. Well, at least it ended up with the two in that awkward position though I’m not sure how Mamura would react if he learns what she doesn’t want him to see. Whether he sees it or not, the mood would be spoiled. Since the cliffhanger is whether to kiss or not, based on the shoujou-s I’ve read, most likely no. It is pretty much a set-up for Yukichi to suddenly come in with the tea. Of course, maybe in a different kissing scenario in the next chapter since the kiss topic has already been mentioned, and thought of by Suzume =P There is some nice chemistry stuff between them over liking the same villain character ^^ Regarding Yuyuka, since it is Yuyuka, I think it is understandable that she won’t tell Suzume about Shishio. Since she adores Mamura, I don’t think she would tell Suzume and make her all confused which lowers Mamura’s chances with her. It did makes me wonder if I were in that situation, should I tell a friend that her crush actually likes her even after he rejected her and that friend is currently going steady with another guy whom she doesn’t exactly have a deep love yet? Telling it to the friend would indeed cause complications but then, if one doesn’t, the friend might later on say, ‘how come you didn’t tell me, we could have been happy together in love’. ^^; Hm, maybe just let it be and go with the notion, if they were meant to be, they will be =P Also, it is also up to Shishio/the crush if he wants to still pursue the girl or not since he did reject her/lied to her about not liking her.

Naruto 668 – Gai/Guy has stolen the limelight. Even if it is unlikely he does anything major to Madara since he isn’t the main lead but one cannot help but cheer him on for that. Persistent even if there seems to be no hope = that kind of characteristic is usually for main leads in other series. Even if the others are worried about him dying because of it, but I think a man should do what a man has to do in this kind of situation. After all, if he doesn’t do that now, when is he going to do it? It is the ‘end of the world’ and one has to risk everything even one’s life to stop the person causing that. Isn’t that what one makes a hero? Even if it is kind of suicidal, in this case, there is a lot to gain if he succeed or delay the inevitable a bit. It makes me think that the others do not have that kind of mindset that they tend to be bystanders. I’m wondering though if it would be better if the others would fight together against Madara or it would be better to just stand by so that they would still have someone to fight Madara if he fails. ^^;; In a way, with the flashback, this shows how his father had taught and inspired him. Then, he passed it on to his disciple so somehow, his father’s will/teaching still lives on..if Gai/Lee/both lives through this ^^

Bleach 572 – so, from peek-a-boo guy, it is now imagination guy. I have to say the mangaka can be quite creative with the powers of the enemies. I thought Yachiru would pull out some bankai on that guy or, something like she doesn’t think so she couldn’t imagine = not effective on her. Anyway, what most people are waiting for is back. I’m not sure I’m happy that Kenpachi would be just up against, some brat. ^^;

One Piece 741 – after some blind faith and crushed dwarves, Usopp finally ‘man-s up’ and attacks. Hopefully, he delivers since most of the people here are depending on him. After his confession, maybe the dwarves will learn not to be too trusting. Hm..I wonder why not attack Sugar and just the slime guy..well, of course, it is slime guy who has been bullying the dwarves. ^^; Well, maybe Usopp will have a real bounty after this arc. And, I guess after the Kyros’ flashback, it will be the signal for him and the other toys to become humans and make a lot of Doflamingo’s veins pop ^^ Since he had a sob story flashback, does that make Kyros a candidate to be a SH new member? Unlikely because like Rebecca, his goal has always been protecting each other but possible, there is something more than that, something like change his reputation and being a ‘famous pirate who helps/change the world with SH’? And, since Luffy is there and if Kyros did something amazing, he might say, ‘cool, be my nakama’ =P

    1. Well Rebecca is very fixated on her country and Kyros on Rebecca and his country. So, I don't think he will, if Luffy does ask him.

    2. I recall to have read that, JJ ^^

      True..I also think that until the last scene of the chapter..Kyros wondering about his reputation. Unless that is resolved in the rest of the flashback, I think there is a chance. Of course, that is if Luffy is interested in him. =P Actually, I do wonder if there will be a new nakama after this arc. ^^;

  3. The situation with Yuyuka kinda reminds me of Murao's situation in Ao Haru Ride. Both find out that their best friend's crush (who rejected them earlier) actually likes them and now they're both in a relationship with someone they like but don't "love" yet. I think theyre both going to spill what they know because they feel guilty. Murao is already feeling guilty about not telling Yoshioka when she still had the chance, and Yuyuka will probably start to feel that way when she finds out Suzume is not completely over sensei either. I'm team Mamura but I think sensei is going to end up with Suzume :( its just how these things go in shoujo manga. Mamura is just something to get Suzume and sensei to realize their true feelings TT TT altho i really really really hope I'm wrong.

    1. Hm..that is another similarity with AHR aside from currently going with the 'other guy'. True, that is possible though Yuyuka previously like Mamura and still 'likes' him though not romantically so that could be a factor for her not to tell Suzume. She might want things to happen or not happen with him and Suzume naturally rather than 'force things' and cause complications by mentioning that.

      Is that so..I think in this series, it isn't really 'set' in contrast to AHR because there aren't much couple pictures of Suzume and 'the one for her' as to who she'll obviously she end up with. For now, I think it can be either of the guys and it is up to the mangaka whether she would make it 'typical as things go in shoujo' ^^
