Annotated Tokusatsu: Kamen Rider Gaim episodes 40-41

We’re at the bottom of the inning, and Urobutcher continues to hit his home-runs like it’s no tomorrow. Based on the current score board, Kamen Rider Gaim's events from episode 40 and 41 have changed the playing field for the upcoming segments. One thing for sure, the last stretch is going to be an intense journey through the fruit aisle.

Annotated Manga: Bleach chapter 593

Bleach is lookin' good, if you don't mind my saying.  I don't mean that by the state of its plot or the quality of its writing, but I do think that this last chapter has put out surprisingly striking visuals, a strong contrast to the relatively lackluster panels of the last few weeks.

Annotated Anime: Sword Art Online II episode 7
by Salvador GRodiles

Yikes. I never expected to be concerned about Sword Art Online II’s well-being. While there was a bit of hope for A-1 to get back on track, things are taking a slight turn for the worse with the way how they followed up on the show’s latest conflict. From the looks of it, the SAO II might be in a grim state until things pick up again.
