Naruto's Seven Sins #3: Naruto's Growth

A time-skip is a time-honored tradition in shounen manga. One of my favorites is the one Dragon Ball had before the 23rd Martial Arts Tournament. We leave Goku a kid who doesn't even come up to most people's waists and by the time the three years are done, we are introduced to him as grown man.

It was a pretty awesome moment.

Naturally, when Naruto left to train with Jiraya for over two years, countless expectations were created within us.

Weekly Shounen Jump: The Next Big Thing!


One Piece.


Once upon a time, these three were juggernauts. However, only one of them remains now. Thus, it is only natural for us to wonder one simple thing.

What's going to be Jump's next Big Hit?

This is not one of those posts.

I'll never do one of those posts.

This is Naruto's Seven Sins #2: Bloodline Limits!

Let's get started!

Naruto's Seven Sins: #1 Team Bonding

Get it? Because there are seven swordsmen?
To those who follow this blog, it should be no secret that I really like Naruto, and I'll often be the first to defend it. In fact, I was once asked by a friend if there was anything negative I could say about the manga.

The short answer is yes. Of course, there are flaws in Naruto. I am not one of those guys who is unable to see the flaws in his favorite manga.

The long answer is... well, let's get to it, starting with #1!

Life is not Cheap!

It's been a long time since I did one of these and what better manga to talk about than Osamu Tezuka's Black Jack!

Dragon Ball Super 21-25

We are here once again and to be honest, I'm not a fan of how things are progressing.
