    So, learned two things from the newest chapter of One Piece.

    1: Yamato's devil fruit is the Inu Inu no Mi, Model: Makami

    2. You REALLY don't want to eat a SMILE fruit, because you may end up getting the body of a pug. While keeping your human-sized head on it.
    Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence.

    On a far more positive note, I finished Season 3 of Thunderbolt Fantasy.

    The short response is; Season 4 when? I would like Season 4 as soon as possible please. What a good show.

    The long and spoiler-y version:

    spoilers:
    Absolutely cracking season.

    Lin getting to pull a genuine multi-layered, illusion-based mass-hustle that worked on the badguys, the secret badguys and his own team all at once literally had me in fits of laughter. Absolutely the highlight of the season. The season introduced, effectively, a much wider conceptual universe and time travel through the Void Junction and used both to great effect. I also liked that we got more of Shang's backstory and more angst for Lang Wu Yao which I'm always a fan of.

    Shang and Lin remain absolute boys and their friendship versus their near constant conflict with their respective approaches to solving situations is always fun but nonetheless complimentary.

    I also liked how the Order of the Divine Swarm and the Xi You army were written to be sympathetic despite both being notionally villains. Wan Jun Po was a really fun character who walked the line of villain and hero very well and his end was really well done.

    Lou Zhen Jie being like "No fuck this, turn back into a sword," was pitch perfect and his eventual end was a good one too.
    end of spoilers

    If I had some small criticisms... and they are very nitpicky.

    spoilers:
    I figured that since we had a whole episode devoted to the concept of the Butterfly Effect, we would see the impact of Zhao Jun Lin leaving Lou Zhen Jie centuries in the past cause some kind of crazy change in the status quo, this was sadly undone by Lin just bringing him back which is simpler and, despite being a great end to that confrontation, wasn't as fun as more time travel bollocks.

    I also really wanted Dian Fei and maybe Cai Jun to wield the Holy Spirit Blades in the final battle against Jun Lin. I get that Jun Po needed to have his "ultimately misguided and self destructive heroism moment," to highlight how his compromise on his beliefs had kind of left him a burnt out husk of himself... but... I want Dian Fei to do cool shit and those swords are begging to be used by the sect that has trained to use them.

    On the flipside, I wasn't expecting to see Dian Fei at all and she not only showed up but got to do some cool stuff so I can't complain too much.
    end of spoilers

    Still, those are small criticisms.

    A lot of stuff to be resolved. Season 4 can't come soon enough!

    Makes it more generic which is not what the series is strong for. You look ahead at where the webcomic is and it's actually quite politically-based at the moment and this god nonsense isn't a factor.
    When you say new redraw do you mean "New Chapter of the Manga version" or "Old chapter of the Manga version got redone"

    The latter. Murata redid the Orochi/Saitama fight and made it less good.

    Orochi does not actually appear in the original webcomic.

    Thank you for the congratulations.

    Had a lot of fun today, even if Forbidden Desert wrecked us multiple times. Probably the most brutal cooperative board game I've played.

    And tomorrw I'm gonna DM my second DnD one-shot. That'll be interesting.

Gale's big quadruple (?) cross was fantastic, and I really liked how, on learning about Huo Shi Ming Huang he just looked like he was climaxing at the prospects. Shang had some great shit too; I like how he's not real ruffled by time travel stuff. He's such a good foil for Gale, with them both having really figured out their paths in life to where they're sorta just this side of beyond mortal concern, and being completely different. Where Gale can make a person destroy themselves, Shang is just as good at inspiring them to be their best. Ming Huang came across as a genuinely scary guy too. Seven Blasphemous Deaths talking about Lou Zhen Jie like he's her embarrassing ex that she's not quite over is hilarious.

    Also really enjoying how they've now chucked TWO high end demons into space. I'm hoping the magitech dude stuck outside of time comes back, 'cause he was great.

    Upon revisiting the Witch: The Subversion the movie has def moved up in my ranking. I think now that I know what to expect the family/non-action stuff hit harder this time for me and it makes the non-family stuff hit harder too.

    Also apparently the sequel to it is in post-production now so that's dope
