Annotated Manga: Naruto chapter 683

It's time now for a bit more Naruto, and to be honest, there's not all that much to say about the latest chapter despite the copious amounts of talking they do. And without a truly striking image to latch onto, the last week in Naruto ends up as yet more place-setting for the next set of steps in the fight, as well as another potentially infuriating hint-drop.

The Mack is back, and by "Mack" we mean, "The Strawberry", because Bleach is once again graced by the presence of its lead character.

It makes for quite the entrance, as Kenpachi, the one guy in this series nobody expected to see getting his ass kicked by anyone other than Ichigo, went and got his ass kicked. And by a quartet of chicks that would usually be wiped out in one hit at any other time, no less.

Annotated Anime: One Piece 643-647

Phew, I've been gone for a while. That means that you guys haven't gotten your proper dose of One Piece in weeks. That's a bloody shame, and I'm here to fix you guys right up. Thing is, in terms of major plot developments, th...

And here we are: At the endgame. In the words of an Xbox marketing campaign, it's time for Naruto to finish the fight.

Welcome to the next evolution of our Shonen Showdown fight show recap! In case you haven't noticed, we at Japanator have sunsetted the Annotated Anime Roundup, and honored every show we cover with its own, solo post. Our recaps were guilty of "showism" and discriminated based on profile. No more! 

The same goes for our favorite battle programs, and even their source manga! We open our brave new world with a look at Bleach's latest chapters. Because there's nothing like starting a new chapter in the glory of battle by recapping badass show!

Welcome to another weekly installment of Shonen Showdown, your everyday look at the latest in battle shows. This week we're catching up on the status of our favorite anime memes, and it appears that the evergreen "Moe Moe Kyun!" remains perennially popular, even among people who themselves could be described as "perennial". Truly, a meme for the ages.

Oh, and there's also some stuff here from the latest chapters in Bleach, Naruto, and Hunter x Hunter. Those are nice, as well.
