Pandora Hearts Final ChapterShow
Oh my god, this final chapter was beautiful, bittersweet and full of feels, I'm so glad that a friend of mine recommended this to me back in 2011.
The first part was beautiful with everyone making an appearance (Especially Elliot, Echo, Uncle Oscar and the relationship between Oz and his father) and looking happy, but when they returned I shed a tear when Oz and Alice were saying 'see you' to Gil ;-;, I feel bad as well for Rufus who never got married with Sheryl but at least he seems that he enjoyed the time he was with her. Ada and Vincent was a couple that I didn't like at the beginning, but since some chapters back I've found myself liking it and feeling bad because they were never a couple, but the last moment of Vincent with Gil was so beautiful :tears: . Sharon and Reim, made sense even as last minute as it happened. At the end Gil is like Hachiko, an excellent and loyal friend, he waited 100 years to see Oz and Alice again. Also I finally understand the reason of why every chapter was called ''retrace''.

10/10 I'll read this again so I can fully understand everything.

My first time reading the manga was in 2010, so both of us started the manga before Jack turned into black (which was Chapter 65 in 2012). I feel this is awesome because the astonishment caused by the revealing of the truth that Jack is actually the antagonist instead of Glen is so unforgettable (oh how many hearts were torn into pieces at the time)! As for the last chapter, I couldn't hold my tears anymore when hearing Gil said he would wait for another 100 years ;w; Finally yes, the entire story is Gil's retrace!

Here I'm making (probably) my last post about Pandora Hearts in this forum. Please keep in mind: if you're planning to read the manga, then don't click open any spoiler me and houreki wrote about the last chapter. That's it. Hope you enjoy it.

With how much I love DanMachi and Aizu, I obviously had to pick up DanMachi Gaiden: Sword Oratoria when I heard about it. Not only does it focus on best girl, it is also a nice supplement to the main series. Would have been better if I could get my hands on the light novel, but I'll make do with what is more easily accessible.

So recently (yesterday) I had a sudden urge to watch the Pokemon movies, namely from where I left off (Rise of Darkrai) up to just-now-finished Zoroark: Master of Illusions. And now I need a break. Since I'm on a Pokemon high anyway, there was a series I've always wanted to check out: Pokemon Adventures. Actually, Pokemon Special, because fuck the English version; I've heard that was censored as hell. Anyway...yeah, I'm kinda excited.

Edit: Correction: Adventures is apparently not censored much at all. However, still, the pages are mirrored so to read from left to right. That's just weird to me now, so I'll stick with Special.

I'm lucky that the local library has all 12, it's great and the only bad character is Misa.
The manga probably doesn't do justice to the potato chip scene though, gonna have to find that on YouTube.

Is the anime worth watching? I've heard that the anime isn't very good compared to the manga, but I likely won't be able to get volume 2 until March :(

Pokemon Special: Red/Green/Blue Chapter, Yellow ChapterShow
There was one main thing that made me want to check out this series in the first place: people saying the story is dark. Having read the first the arcs, all I can say regarding that claim is "meh." I mean, sure, it's not as lighthearted as the anime...but "dark"? I've seen darker when it comes to Pokemon (those that know about "Pokemon Reborn" will understand).

Still, it's not bad. Quite enjoyable, in fact. But, it's not free from bullshit match results. Example: The Indigo League Finals. Red vs. Green. Green CLEARLY still had at least 2 unused pokemon, yet Red is somehow declared the victor. WHAT!?

That aside, designs are quite good. Love them. And love all of the main cast, too. I kinda spoiled myself with Blue's design in "FireRed/LeafGreen" Arc...but damn...I kinda just wanna skip "Gold/Silver/Crystal" and "Ruby/Sapphire" just for the new Blue design.

I found and watched the famous 'chip scene' and it was better to read the manga of DN, imagination power was better.

Pokemon Special: Gold/Silver/Crystal Chapter, First 2 volumes of…Show
No one here reads Pokemon Special and no one is going to read it. So why am I even bothering with this~~? Well, whatever.

There's one thing I find fascinating about this series. It's the fact that even people who play the games could be left confused about the logic behind how some of these evolutions work--EVEN THOUGH none of the canonical rules are being broken. (Alright, fine. With the exception of Crystal's Chikorita evolving at level 9.) It's just amazing how the mangaka is able to so craftily mask information such that people who know exactly how Pokemon are taken by surprise. Of course, the major example is Red's Poliwhirl evolving into Poliwrath...the presence of a water stone only being made clear volumes later. But there's also Yellow's Graveler (whom was given to her by Brock) that evolved much later than when the exchange happened. This made it seem as if the evolve-through-trade rule had been broken, when it hadn't.
It's all just so...satisfying.

Ruby and Sapphire chapter is, so far, better than Gold/Silver/Crystal; not as good as Red/Green/Blue and Yellow. The personalities of the two protagonists, though...I WAS NOT expecting. Not by a long-shot. BUT I LIKE IT. I love when the mold is broken (totally no pun intended).

Well, I read Pokemon special a few years ago, I stopped at gold/silver for some reason and whenever I tried to start again I just don't know where I left it @_@

Congratulations, Emerald, for being the first main character I hate. Wally should have been chosen, not you.

For the first time in the entire series, I feel a legit sense of adventure. Unfortunately, this peace probably won't last long, but I wish it will. No evil scheme; just journey to a destination.

I think the anime is worth it. As always, people who read the manga tend to prefer the original, but I think the anime adaptation is very good. Voices for L and Light are interesting too! You should watch it if you can't get your hands on the other volumes :biggrin:
