    There's more I could say, but fuck it. This is a waste of time for everyone involved. No minds are getting changed here and it's exhausting. To other things

    Goddess Dormitory done. Really god straight shota show. Great fanservice for every girl including Sutea, fun characters. A really good ecchi harem. Now to hope World End Harem's AT-X release delivers

    Michael Bay's Transformers movies absolutely had takes, those of "America, fuck yeah!" and other not-so-subtle pro-military, pro-War on Terror takes that we all just accepted as natural without noticing them outright. I don't know enough about the others to comment, but yeah, no media is produced divorced from the context it was made in.

    Blue Exorcist Volumes 22-24:
    Spoiler:
    Rin's body couldn't handle his flames being unleashed after the Koma Sword broke and his body was destroyed only to have a new one be created from the ashes like a phoenix. But his "demon heart", which I suppose is like his true demonic nature, was unleashed too and it took Shiemi to calm him down again.

    After all that, Rin took on a journey to the past to find out about his and Yukio's birth. According to Mephisto, he wants to answer the one who doesn't want to know, not the one who does, because it's his nature as a demon. H
    e saw his mother, Yuri Egin, as a young orphan, and how she met Father Fujimoto, who is one of Azazel's clone vessels on the run.


    He wasn't very nice when he was younger, which is understandable. He didn't want to be experimented on and then die like the rest of the clones, but he had a good heart even then. After he got caught, she went with him after it was revealed she was able to see demons.
    From there, she was trained as a exorcist and Fujimoto got the okay to become one from Mephisto on the condition if he ever yields to a demon, he must grant him a favor. Anything he wants.


    And they didn't talk much since he did his best to avoid her until they got older. As much as she liked him, Fujimoto wouldn't return Yuri's feelings. It was like that until the vessel that Section 13 had prepared for Lucifer was instead possessed by Satan himself. They had no idea who he was.


    But the monster never took on a vessel before, so having a body, all of it was new to him. He was like a newborn baby, and the Order had Yuri be one of the people to take care of him since she a tamer with a good affinity with demons and when he broke free for the first time, he went to her.


    It turns out the little blue flames she saw as a child, were him trying to manifest in Assiah, they were connected even then. Eventually, he was able to learn to talk, but he like was a little child at that point. And with that power it made him dangerous, so they had to extra care not to expose him to too much. Unfortunately, he took a guard hostage and the condition of his release was that he got a lot of books on anything he wanted.
    Spoiler:


    After he got the books, he killed the guard, and declared himself a god, knowing full well what he truly was, Satan, the father and king of all demons. He took Section 13 and most of the people there hostage after leaving the facility and coming back because his body breaking down. As long as they kept giving the research facility supplies, and they would keep making elixirs for him, they would be spared. Eventually, Yuri decides to go in and after almost killing him, Satan declares that he loves her.


    Then they decided to make a escape, and while trying to flee, Satan was captured, and it was revealed that she was pregnant with twins. They couldn't really do anything to help her because harming the mother of demon child would curse them. But the Order to planned to exorcise the brothers as soon as they were born.


    When Rin was born, he went wild. He cried like a normal baby and then just started jumping around and incinerating people. That was what Rin was always afraid of knowing.


    Everytime Yukio was like, "Don't you want to know the truth behind our birth?!", this was what he was thinking about. It makes me wonder if Yukio even ever considered that or was too focused on himself to worry about his brother's feelings. After seeing that, Rin thought that he should never have been born and that's just terrible. It wasn't his fault, none of it was his fault. He didn't know any better.

    Meanwhile, people are seeing demons a lot more often, Shiemi got carried of by the Grigori, and Lightning's been arrested for attacking Dragulescu, who's pretty much confirmed as an Illuminati spy. The way he got around the Contract of Morinath on him was that he replaced his body from the neck down to avoid being killed by Mephisto's demon. That's also how Lucifer has been keeping himself around, they just recently got the technology to make perfect clone bodies. Which ties into Yukio being on board that airship.

    They tested him and his one eye is window that Satan can see into the human world because of the temptaint it got from sharing the womb with Rin. And he's immune to the blue flames of Satan. Besides that, he's human. But after learning that and getting weapons from them, he turned loose the Contract of Morinath that was on his hand from Lightning, and called his demons to fight for him, since the person who made the contract in the first place decides whether the demons kill or protect the signee. He ordered them to destroy the airship and now Lightning knows where the Illuminati base is.

    But the thing I'm really interested in, is finally knowing what happened on the Blue Night.


    I'm almost at the point of having to read the actual chapters separately.

    Spoiler:

    I would say that my favorite arc was probably Hueco Mundo. Everything got turned up to 11 in regards to the fights themselves and the final confrontation with Aizen made it really seem like the grand finale. If it stopped there, I would have abeen satisfied.

    At first Chad was my fav character (he's just a really cool, chill guy), but he was unfortunately nonexistant after Hueco Mundo...so I guess it's probably a tie between Kenpachi (let's be honest every story needs a Kenpachi), Genryusai (just the few chapters he got at the start of the 1000 Year Blood War arc made me absolutely adore him) and Mayuri (I'm just a sucker for the crazy scientist archetype, but I have to say that even in that regard he stands out as a humongous piece of shit human being and I love him for it)

    Fav villain is Aizen, mostly because he's just an 500 IQ meme, but even beyond that I find him a very memorable character. He got a lot of awesome moments. Him stopping Ichigo's blade was spoiled to me long ago, but it was still pretty hype when I read it.
    I also really liked Baraggan (he's just that Dark Souls 1 boss - I love skeletons with capes) and that Fear Quincy (he was really creepy and cool, which is a tough thing to do for a design imho) purely for their designs.

    Fav Zanpakuto...I guess Benihime. For me it has the best ratio of having a neat design, and me liking its Bankai (it's basically just a JoJo power).
    If we wanna go just by design though, definitely Zangetsu (idk I just really like big swords). I still don't get how Kubo managed to make a better design for it 4+ times.

    Fav Shikai is either Kujaku (Ayasegawa's Shikai) or Suzumebachi (Sui-Feng's Shikai).
    ...and yes, i did google the names for those wondering.

    Fav Bankai is either Komamura's (giant samurai armor crushing shit is just such an amazing visual scale-wise), Genryusai's or Rukia's (it being a huge double-edged sword is a really neat concept, shame it only got used once).


    To add, I don't really have plans to watch the anime (although if there is an amazing filler arc or something lie that please do let me know). Maybe when the 1000 Year Blood War arc gets adapted (btw do we know its status, like I hadn't heard anything about it in over a year?).

    Also don't plan to watch/read Burn the Witch. I guess I just wanna wait for more of it to come out. Heard it was just okay, but I might check it out at a later date.

    Just looked the novels up. I'd heard that the novels existed, but I didn't know Narita wrote them. They any good?

    I was, however, interested in the theatrical movies (I don't mean the live action ones). Are any of them good or are they kind of skippable?
    Well, now I'm just going to gush.
    Spoiler:

    I'd have to say Hueco Muendo for me too.

    One of the reasons why I don't mind the anime original arcs is because you get to see characters like Chad actually do more,so there's that. I mean if you really wanted to you could skip the New Captain Amagai/Kasumioji Crisis arc since that happens in the middle of Hueco Mundo in the anime. I thought it was fine though.

    Yeah, Kenpachi is just amazing, the man just loves to fight and he will willing weaken himself to make fights last longer. Yamamoto was pretty cool too, the man was the Head Captain of Court Guard Squads for that long for a reason. Yeah, I tend to like mad scientists too like Franken Stein in Soul Eater, so Mayuri is one of the characters I like too. Every new arc he had a new look, and they got more crazy with each one.

    Yeah, Aizen easily for me. Him or Ulquiorra. As Nodt was pretty creepy.

    My favorite Zanpakuto is Zangetsu, I just love it.
    (idk I just really like big swords).
    So do I! There are like 2 in Fate, but I hesitate to call them swords.

    The first and second versions of it's Shikai and Bankai, and the last one of the Shikai, I have mixed feeling on the Bankai, but Zangetsu itself seems like it went back to it's first version. But the moment when Ichigo uses his Bankai against Byakuya for the first time is just one of my favorite moments in Bleach.

    But if not Ichigo's Zanpukuto probably like Zabimaru, Hyorinmaru, and Senbonzakura. Their Shikai and Bankai forms are just as cool.

    Nothing really about the anime. The first movie is my favorite one and probably one of my favorite anime movies. The second one is pretty cool, the third is okay, but the forth one had direct supervision from Tite Kubo himself and is pretty good too. He even drew a scene for one of the movie trailers. And I have the first novel, but I haven't read it yet.

    Otherside Picnic's anime was shit.

    Trust me, read the manga. It's a wholly different experience, it's actually scary, the art is fantastic, and there's a lot more detail.
