Boruto Episode 128

Boruto Episode 128

Urashiki’s Target

I’m sure a lot of people are discussing how Boruto and Sasuke traveled back in time this week. I know I’ll be discussing it too towards the end of this review. However, that’s the least important part of the episode as far as I’m concerned. I’ve already seen all of Naruto.

The important part of the episode, to me, is the first half where we get to see Urashiki outsmarting the entire Hidden Leaf Village. But before that happens, there are some other things we need to go over. First of all, Urashiki never actually kills anyone. Have you ever thought about why that is?

It’s because he’s a filler arc villain. Aside from the fact that he was included in the series’ version of the chunin exam arc, he’s only shown up in filler arcs. And because of this, they can’t have him actually kill off any characters despite the fact that stealing their chakra would do just that.

By the way, if you didn’t know, chakra is your life force. Ignore the fact that humans existed on Earth before Kaguya brought chakra to Earth in the form of the God Tree. Sometimes plot holes happen.

So instead of killing Mirai Sarutobi, Urashiki steals her chakra and uses it to cast a genjutsu on Mirai and another Hidden Leaf shinobi in order to lure the guards away from the village. However, when we see Mirai’s chakra it’s a dirty green color. Why?

Mirai’s affinity is for Wind nature (not Yin), although she also knows Lightning, Fire, and Yin. I think the color we see is just her Wind chakra in the dark, though it still isn’t quite right. It almost looks like Wood chakra, but I’m sure it’s supposed to be Wind.

Karasuki, the Noble Device

After clearing out the Hidden Leaf Village, Urashiki then makes his way towards the Archaeological Research Institute. Even Urashiki is aware that he stands no chance fighting against Naruto and his close supporters, like Shikamaru, head on. Even Naruto alone could probably beat Urashiki.

But that still doesn’t explain why he went to the Archaeological Research Institute. The reason is because there’s an Ōtsutsuki device there known as Karasuki. Karasuki is some sort of mechanized turtle with the ability to travel through time.

Why does this matter? Because Urashiki’s plan was to go back in time and steal the Nine-tails’ chakra before Naruto became as powerful as he is now. But the question then becomes, when was he going to go back to? I think his best chance would have been right after Jiraiya died, but as we learn, he was planning to go back even farther.

Maybe Urashiki doesn’t know this, but as a general rule Shinobi are stronger the farther back in time you go. I’ve planned to write an entire post about this idea for months now and haven’t gotten around to it yet, so I’ll just give a brief version of it here.

Kaguya brought chakra to Earth via the God Tree. Chakra was then passed down from one generation to the next after that. With each new generation, the God Tree’s chakra becomes more diluted, and is thus weaker. That’s why even though Naruto and Sasuke are extremely strong, they still didn’t stand a chance against Madara.

So the best time for Urashiki to strike would be right after Jiraiya’s death. By that time Naruto isn’t strong enough to defeat him yet, and both Jiraya and Hiruzen are dead. Only Obito or Zetsu would be a problem.

Naruto: Boruto Previous Generations

I touched on this towards the end of last week’s review, but this next arc is in celebration of the 20th anniversary of Naruto. It’s true that we could see Urashiki be defeated once and for all during this arc, but aside from that there shouldn’t be anything that will impact the story greatly.

And I think that’s what a lot of people may not be realizing about this arc. This arc isn’t going to be some crazy arc that sets things up for the future of the series. And even if we do get some crazy stuff, like Boruto, Sasuke, Naruto, and Jiraiya teaming up to fight Urashiki, it’ll have to be revealed that it wasn’t real.

Because think about it, if it was canon that Naruto met his own son as a child or that he previously defeated an Ōtsutsuki before Kaguya, that’s kind of a big deal. That can’t be something just thrown into canon on a whim.

Also the fact that Karasuki is capable of time travel on its own would break the story. I get that they set it up so Karasuki can’t be used again by having Urashiki say only Ōtsutsuki can activate him, but Naruto and Sasuke each have Ōtsutsuki chakra within them. They could use that to go back in time and mess with anything they wanted.

So, yeah. This may be a little, fun arc taking place during the “good old days,” but I wouldn’t expect anything too exciting. It’s a nice way to celebrate Naruto’s 20th anniversary, but that’s really all it is.

Conclusion

My Hero Academia Episode 64

My Hero Academia Episode 64

The Scoop on U.A. Class 1-A

My Hero Academia Season 4 is here, and I’m sure there are a lot of people excited about that. However, I’m not one of those people. I’m not a My Hero Academia hater — I do enjoy the series. But, I don’t think the series is quite as good as many others do and I feel like it’s not going to improve.

In fact, I have a feeling that the series is going to start going downhill. Think of it this way, aside from All Might yelling “United States of Smash,” the best part of the series so far was the tournament arc. And from here on out, we’re probably not going to get another tournament arc or All Might fight.

Midoriya and Bakugo have had their moments throughout the series, but are those two really enough to carry it? The majority of Class 1-A students are little more than background characters, so I wouldn’t expect much from them. Todoroki and Iida exist, but they’ve also both already had their development.

Let’s be honest, the students have never been the most interesting characters in this series — the pro heroes are. Endeavor and many of the other pro heroes are still around, but the series seems to be phasing them out at this point. And after that happens, who are we left with?

We’re left with a bunch of wacky, student characters who feel out of place in this increasingly serious world. The world of My Hero Academia isn’t the same as One Piece, but the characters seem to think otherwise.

Starting Off Strong with a Recap Episode

Maybe I’ll turn out to be wrong and this will be the best season of My Hero Academia yet. But you have to admit that episode 64 was a weak way to start off the new season. It was a recap episode that didn’t even recap the events of the previous season.

And before anyone tries to tell me that this wasn’t a recap episode — yes, it was. I understand that a new character was introduced, and I’ll be getting to him in a bit, but he was introduced as a way to make the recap more interesting. Nothing that happens in this episode is going to have any effect on the story.

So if the previous season wasn’t recapped, what was?

Well, All Might’s retirement was recapped, so technically a small portion of season 3 was recapped. But aside from that we were reintroduced to the fact that Midoriya is All Might’s pupil, and then we got a quick rundown of all the class 1-A students and their quirks.

Basically the recap episode only recapped the things that didn’t need to be recapped. I could already tell you the quirks of the class 1-A students because we’ve been seeing them for the past 60 episodes. What I can’t tell you is what happened in season 3.

I know All Might retired, but not because of this recap. I know we were introduced to some upperclassmen, but I only remember one of their names and quirks. And that’s about it. If they really needed to do a recap episode here, don’t you think they should have recapped the things that needed recapping?

Taneo Tokuda – Whole Body Lens

The new character introduced in this episode is Taneo Tokuda, a freelance journalist who is sent to U.A. in order to figure out which student is All Might’s successor. Of course, we as the viewers already know the answer to that. That’s kind of been a main focus of the previous 63 episodes.

So at first it seems like Taneo is going to be an important character. After all, it’s his job to reveal All Might’s successor to the world. Although we know it’s Midoriya, the rest of the My Hero Academia world doesn’t. But, since this episode is just a recap, nothing that impactful happens.

While Taneo does learn that Midoriya is All Might’s successor, he decides to keep this information a secret. And thus, no plot development happened in these 23 minutes whatsoever.

Since 80% of the world in this series has a quirk, obviously Taneo has one. His quirk is fairly niche, but at the same time it’s the perfect quirk for his profession. All things considered, he probably got into his profession as a direct result of his quirk.

That quirk is called Whole Body Lens, and it allows Taneo to create camera lenses anywhere on his body. The pictures he takes with these lenses can then either be stored within his body or be printed out via his chest. I will say that I like this quirk for an investigative reporter like Taneo. It’s a good filler episode quirk.

And let’s not forget that this quirk isn’t only good for reporting. Taneo could use it to go undercover pretending to be quirkless. He could have had a successful career as a spy.

Conclusion

For those of you who might think Taneo has a stupid ability, just let me remind you that Uiharu from Railgun’s ability is to keep objects she holds mildly warm. Definitely a useful ability at times, but I don’t think that’s one anyone actually wants. What niche quirk would you want to have? Let me know in the comments.

Dr. Stone Episode 15

Dr. Stone Episode 15

The Culmination of Two Million Years

I know some people won’t like me saying this, but overall I wouldn’t call this week’s episode of Dr. Stone good. Did it have some good parts? Yes. But most of the episode was made up of what I like to call “shounen gags.” You know, the little “jokes” that the 12 year old boys the series is made for probably love.

And I guess that actually means this is a great anime if it knows its target audience that well. But I still don’t like it. It’s cheap entertainment that’s used to mask the fact that this series doesn’t have much going for it otherwise.

But that’s not what I want to discuss this week. After all, there are other aspects of this series which are far more deserving of discussion. Specifically this week I want to focus on Ruri’s illness and Senku’s family name. However, we need to cover some other things quickly before we get to those.

Gen and Kaseki from the anime series Dr. Stone
Gen and Kaseki

First of all, let’s just point out that Senku did make Gen’s cola for him. Now that this has been done, we can be certain that Gen won’t rat him out to Tsukasa. After all, Gen isn’t about to give up his cola supply so easily. Now that he knows Senku can actually make it, his allegiance is sealed.

But, as I’ve mentioned previously, there’s no way Tsukasa believed Gen’s report that Senku is dead.

The other thing I want to touch on is that Senku successfully created the sulfa drug. This is one of the most important inventions he could ever make, so that’s kind of a big deal. The only problem is that it’s not exactly the easiest thing for him to mass produce at this point in time.

Village Chieftain

In order to obtain the final ingredients for the sulfa drug, someone from the Kingdom of Science had to win the Grand Bout. Luckily, the final three combatants, Senku, Chrome, and Ginro, are all on that side. However, some things happen and Senku ends up winning by default over Chrome.

That not only means Senku becomes the new village chieftain, but also means that he officially gets married to Ruri in Chrome’s place. But, Senku being Senku, he decides to immediately divorce Ruri because who needs girls when you have science?

And now that I’ve gotten that summary out of the way, why was Senku made the new chieftain? Have you thought about that?

Technically speaking he was made the new chieftain because he cured Ruri’s sickness, but the villagers were prepared to make him the new chieftain after he won the Grand Bout. The only thing is, there’s already a perfectly healthy and capable chieftain there. So why would the winner of the Grand Bout immediately take over?

You’d think that winning would put Senku next in line for that position, not immediately put him in it. But, there is a reason, and I’ve mentioned it in the past.

The stone village is actually a matriarchal society in which the priestess holds the highest position. The title of village chieftain is simply given to whichever man happens to be married to her. And since the current priestess is unmarried, the previous chieftain retained his position until a time when he could be replaced.

So although it seemed like the village was giving Ruri away for marriage, the Grand Bout was really a competition to see who’s worthy of standing by her side. The village chieftain is simply the head guard of the village.

Ruri’s Illness

We learned that Ruri’s mystery illness was actually bacterial pneumonia. All things considered, that’s one of the best possible outcomes as Senku explained because it’s treatable. But, let’s just appreciate for a moment the fact that Ruri had this infection for years.

Maybe you don’t know, but it’s not very likely for someone to survive with this condition for that long. Sure, you might be able to treat the symptoms like Ruri was thanks to Kohaku, but there are so many other ways for it to kill you.

For one, the infection could spread to other organs, causing them to shut down. There’s also the shortness of breath factor which could cause asphyxia at any time. And let’s not forget that Ruri was also coughing up blood, meaning it’s only a matter of time before she ruptures something.

The longer she has the illness for, the worse her combined symptoms would become. And that’s why it’s amazing that she somehow lived for years like this. We don’t know how many years it’s been, but either way, it’s an impressive feat considering they had no medicine whatsoever.

But I’ll let the improbability of Ruri’s survival slide.

Really what I thought could have been done better about this part of the episode was the conclusion. After taking the medicine Ruri’s condition gets worse, but then Senku let’s everyone know that just means the drug is working. This was pretty anticlimactic.

Why not say that she’s having trouble breathing due to an allergic reaction to the medicine? After all, allergic reactions to sulfa antibiotics are possible and anaphylaxis is a symptom. Senku could have then scienced up a way to save Ruri from this new threat on the spot.

Ishigami Village

Ishigami Village is the name of the stone village. We finally have a name so I can stop calling it the stone village. But why does this matter in the slightest?

First of all, Ishigami is also Senku’s last name. And this is no coincidence considering Ruri already knew that fact. Remember back when I mentioned that the first priestess was someone who likely knew Senku, even perhaps one of his relatives? Well, that seems much more plausible now considering the village is named after his family.

The other important piece of information has to do with the name Ishigami itself. Now, I’ve already wrote an article about anime character names which covers this subject, but anime characters tend to have names that tell you something about them. You know, like how Izuku Midoriya’s color scheme is green and midori (緑) is the word for green.

Well, what do you think ishigami means? And no, it doesn’t describe Senku’s physical appearance — not all anime names do. An ishigami is actually a type of stone statue depicting a god. A god of stone, if you will.

But, ishi is also the word for doctor — as in doctor stone. When written as 医師 ishi translates to doctor, but when written as 石 it translates to stone. So, I guess you could say the title of this anime is Ishi Ishi. But it’s not really, because the title of the series is written in katakana, not kanji.

And there you have it — the title Dr. Stone does in fact refer to Senku, not the soap stone he called Dr. Stone earlier on in the series. His name is also a reference to the fact that he is the new god of the stone world.

Conclusion

What did you think of Dr. Stone episode 15? Do you have another reason why Senku’s family name is important? Let me know in the comments. I guess you could say that ishigami might also refer to the petrified humans as stone statues of gods, and that argument also makes sense.

Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san 2

Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san 2

Overview

I always see different English titles for this series, so as I did with season 1, we’re going to be sticking with the Japanese title for season 2. Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san 2 (からかい上手の高木さん2) is just the second season of Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san.

If you’ve seen the first season, then you basically already know what this series is like. It follows the exact same formula as season 1.

But since I need something to write about, let’s just break down what that formula is again. The series follows two middle school (I think) students who are locked in a battle of wits — not unlike Light and L from Death Note.

The scenarios these students find themselves in follow one of two paths. Either Takagi suggests a game and wins or Nishikata suggests a game, it backfires, and he loses. That’s it. There is no third option. Oh, other than the skits with the side characters, but they aren’t important.

And strangely enough, although this series is a slice of life, real time passes. Usually series like this have different seasons showcased, but year after year the characters don’t age and they’re still in the same place. That’s not the case here.

In season 1 Takagi and Nishikata were first years, but in this season they’re second years. What this means is that eventually the series is going to come to a natural end. I’m not sure if we got to see any of this in season 1, but in season 2 we do get “flash forwards” showing Takagi and Nishikata in the future.

Once we catch up to those scenes is probably when the series will end. And honestly, if that’s the case it would be extremely satisfying.

Difference from Season 1

The main difference between Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san seasons 1 and 2 is the relationship between Takagi and Nishikata. The first season focused on how they both had crushes on each other, but were too shy to make anything of it other than teasing.

However, during this season we see the relationship between these two begin to take shape. It’s nothing official yet, but you can see the two of them becoming more comfortable with expressing themselves to one another. And there’s hand holding this time around.

One of my favorite parts of the season actually came during the credits of the final episode. In it we got a montage of all the times Takagi and Nishikata either held hands or almost held hands. It was a good way of showing how their relationship is slowly building up.

We also get to see the pair outside of their usual stomping grounds a bit more this time around. Previously the only places we saw Takagi and Nishikata were at school, specifically in their classroom, and on their walk home from school down the not-so-shady alleyways.

The walk home from school also includes locations such as the empty lot, shrine, and candy store, all of which we revisit in this season.

Some of the new locations we visit this time around include the mountains their class goes to on a camping trip, the school gym’s storage room, and the mountain on which the summer festival takes place. All of these locations, and the events surrounding them, lead to new and unique interactions between our main characters.

Main Takeaways

If you enjoyed the first season of Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san, you’re probably going to enjoy this one as well. It’s the same formula you know and love, but it’s improved upon this time around by including a slightly more stable relationship between the characters.

I do think that the first season had some better jokes/pranks/games, but the development that came with the second season made it better overall. It doubled down on the romance aspect of the series rather than the comedy aspect, and that’s fine with me.

Another thing I think this season improved upon from the previous season is how the side characters were used. We still get skits from Mina, Sanae, and Yukari, but they didn’t seem as frequent, which was good since we’re focusing more on relationships now.

At the same time, other characters who are in relationships were pushed more towards the forefront. It’s as if the author was attempting to show that Takagi and Nishikata are getting to that age at which relationships between their peers are more commonplace and out in the open.

You know, just like the direction their relationship is heading in.

And the last point I want to touch on is that while Takagi and Nishikata’s relationship is starting to form, it’s really because of Takagi. Yes, she still teases Nishikata, but more and more she outright tells him how she feels about him. And it’s up to Nishikata to decide what he’s going to do with that information. It’s cute to watch.

Conclusion

Despite the fact that I liked it more overall, I still gave Karakai Jozou Takagi-san 2 the same score as the first season, an 8/10. It was better than season 1, but not quite good enough to receive a 9. In fact, only one 2019 anime has received a 9 from me so far and I don’t think the Fall season is going to change that.

And since I always mention the OPs/EDs during the conclusion, the OP for season 2 is better than the OP for season 1. Season 2 also has a total of 8 EDs compared to the 7 EDs for season 1, so I’ll just assume and say that season 2 has a better ED as well. Specifically, I liked ED 6 「Anata ni」the most.

Fruits Basket 1st Season

Fruits Basket 1st Season

Fruits Basket 1st Season anime series cover art
Fruits Basket 1st Season

Overview

Fruits Basket 1st Season (フルーツバスケット 1st season) is, as you may have guessed, the first season of the Fruits Basket anime. But, did you know that this is actually the second time Fruits Basket has gotten an anime adaptation?

Now, I haven’t seen the original adaptation, and at this point I’m not going to, but I figured I’d let you know it existed in case you’re interested. This isn’t going to be some comparison between the old and new adaptation, rather this is just a review of the 2019 version.

Fruits Basket is a romantic comedy drama. It has romance, it has comedy, but most importantly it’s a drama. And if you know me, you’ll know I like my drama anime. But, Fruits Basket isn’t exactly my kind of drama series. It’s a shoujo drama. I’m more of a seinen drama kind of person.

With that said, I did still like the initial premise of Fruits Basket, and I do think it’s a pretty good anime. The series is based on the Chinese zodiac and focuses on the Souma family — a family whose members are physical embodiments of the zodiac animals.

Not all of the Souma clan are zodiac members, but those who are transform into their respective animals when hugged by the opposite gender. Yes, hugs because this is a shoujo series. Also what exactly counts as a hug differs between situations.

And then we have Tooru, a non-Souma clan member who gets caught up in the mystical world of the zodiac. It’s Tooru who slowly but surely teaches the various zodiac members that what they see as a curse is nothing more than their individuality.

Characters

Tooru Honda is our protagonist this time around. She’s an airhead who isn’t all that confident in herself. But she makes up for it by having the largest heart of anyone. It doesn’t matter who they are, if someone is in need of a friend Tooru will be there for them.

And as for some background on Tooru’s situation, we don’t really know anything about her father, but her mother died not all that long ago. She lived with her grandfather for a time before moving out (temporarily at first). She ends up staying with members of the Souma family after being found living on their land.

Yuki Souma is probably the male lead of the series. He’s the first member of the Souma clan we meet, and it’s obvious he has a thing for Tooru so I think it’s a pretty safe bet. But as we’ll see, even saying there’s a definitive male lead isn’t a straightforward process.

Yuki is a member of the zodiac, but I won’t be telling you which one because finding out which animal everyone is is half the fun. What I will say is that Yuki is the pretty boy at school who all the girls love. This means he constantly has to dodge hugs from random girls.

Kyo Souma is the other potential male lead of the series. And although I said Yuki is probably the male lead, Kyo is just as much of a viable option. In many cases Kyo is more the male lead than Yuki, but it constantly shifts back and forth.

Kyo is also a member of the zodiac and doesn’t get along with Yuki at all specifically because of it. While Yuki is the pretty boy, Kyo is the cool, delinquent type.

Slow and Steady

So now we come to my main issue with Fruits Basket, the pacing. This series is incredibly slow for the most part. Like I said, I enjoyed it, but I think it could have cut out some of the fluff to keep the story moving a bit faster.

For example we got a few side character arcs which really didn’t feel necessary.

Uo, one of Tooru’s friends, is a former gang member. That’s something we knew in the series for a long time, and even before we knew, it was pretty obvious that was the case. But we still got a multi-episode background arc for her explaining how she came to be Tooru’s friend.

The same thing could have been accomplished in a single episode since it doesn’t directly relate to the story. It also could have been accomplished even without a dedicated episode. Just keep sprinkling pieces of information about Uo’s past into the main story.

Saki, Tooru and Uo’s other friend, got a similar treatment. I don’t remember if her backstory arc was more than one episode, but if it was it didn’t need to be. It was more interesting than Uo’s arc, but still didn’t really relate to the story. They could have worked well as OVAs.

There was also what amounted to a filler episode all about Saki using her psychic power to scare some other girls from her class. Not exactly sure what that had to do with anything, but it happened. It’s episodes like these that really make the series drag on.

In the end Fruits Basket is going to be four cours long, but honestly I think it could be done in three without really sacrificing anything.

Conclusion

Fruits Basket 1st season was a 6/10 for me from start to finish. The later part of the second cour was a bit better than the rest of the series, but not enough to bump the score up. And yes, I will be watching the 2nd season when it airs. I’m looking forward to how the story continues.

I guess I usually mention the OPs/EDs in the ends of these series/season reviews, so if I had to pick one I’d say ED 2 is the best from Fruits Basket 1st season. ED 1 definitely has a good song by Vickeblanka, but the second ED by INTERSECTION comes with better visuals.
