One Piece is one of the most popular manga featured in the Weekly Shonen magazine in the current time. The two-decade-long story of young pirates aspiring to become the greatest crew ever is written by Eiichiro Oda. It is the adventure of Straw Hat “Monkey D. Luffy”, whose goal is to become the king of the pirates. The manga will complete its 1000 chapters by the end of this year.
Wano Country Arc
The One Piece story is currently focused on the Wano Country that is the land of Samurai. It is ruled by the Shogun Orochi who is evil and inconsiderate. Orochi is backed by Kaido, one of the four Youko (Emperors of Sea). Kaido runs one of the biggest Pirates Crew, the Beast Pirates. It mainly consists of a fighter who transforms into a strong beast using devil fruit powers. Impressive thing is that the captain Kaido can transform into a huge dragon.
Straw Hat’s Objectives
Luffy met Trafalgar law at Punk Hazard. Both of them allied to take down Kaido. The first step was to stop the supply of Smile to Beast Pirates. They defeated Doflamingo who supplied Smile to Kaido under the alias Joker which was the first step towards the main objective. Luffy met some Samurai during his journey who have gathered a huge army to overthrow the rule of Orochi and Kaido. Luffy’s Objective is to defeat Kaido and free the Wano Country. He and His crew also need the road ponyglyph in the possession of Kaido. This will be the key in their journey for the last island, Raftel.
The Current Situation
The alliance against Kaido has gathered over 6000 fighters. Their objective is to overthrow Orochi. The previous Shogun was Kozuki Oden. The Samurai wants revenge for the brutal murder of Oden at the hands of Kaido and Orochi. They also want to bring Momonosuke (the son of Oden) to the throne. The ultimate goal would be to open the Wano Country to the outside world.
Some of the Minks from Zou are also involved in this raid. Marco and Izo, two commanders of Whitebeard Pirates have also arrived. Before the raid was underway, another new character was introduced. Kaido’s daughter has made contact with Luffy. Her name is Yamato. She explains that when Oden was executed, she was very impressed with his ideology. That is why she has become the Self Proclaimed Kozuki Oden. People call her the “Son of Kaido”.
Significance of Yamato
Yamato knows her father well. She has shown that she can use strong Haki like her father. As she is imitating Oden, she uses some of the Samurai tactics as well. Luffy wants to defeat Kaido to end his plague of the Wano Country. He cannot do this without a new key move. Kaido has the armament Haki that far exceeds Luffy. If Yamato is to help Luffy out, he is talented enough to learn to cope with Kaido. We will see how that fight turns out.
One Piece Chapter 985 is gonna shed further light on Yamato. We will know about her connection with Ace. She mentioned that Luffy reminds her of Ace. If there is a romantic connection between Ace and Yamato, there is a possibility of a Child. That would completely throw everyone off guard. Could it be O-Tama? This possibility can only be confirmed or denied in the next chapter. Stay tuned for further news. Let me know your thoughts about the upcoming chapter!
One Piece Chapter 985 Release Date
The Release Date for One Piece Chapter 985 is July 17, 2020. You can read it on the official source, the VIZ manga release site when it comes out.
Boruto along with much other anime had halted new release for months. That is changing slowly as Boruto Anime released its Episode 155 a few days ago. This is because it was finally time to resume the anime. The delays due to the ongoing pandemic may persist but its back. Boruto anime is produced by Pierrot Studio under the direction of Masayuki Koda. The story is supervised by Ukyo Kodachi.
Boruto is a television on TV Tokyo every Sunday. After the anime was approved appropriate for a young audience, it is given the time slot on the weekend. Boruto Episode 156 is expected to air on July 12, 2020. It will be available on Crunchyroll on the same date with subtitles.
Episode 156 Title: “I can’t stay in my slim form”
This episode in particular is written by Toko Machida and directed by Machita Shiraishi.
What is the plot?
The episodes 152-156 are supposedly fillers. Boruto’s plot is transitioning towards the new arc. It is keeping the tradition of adding a few fillers before starting the new arc just like its predecessor Naruto. The previous episode was about the mysterious man that was found by Mitsuki on a rainy night. Episode 156 is about Chōchō Akimichi. She is the only child of Kurai and Choji. She is part of the current generation of Ino-Shika Cho.
We found out from the post-episode preview of Episode 155 that it is about Cho Cho. She has a power mode that gives her wings like a butterfly. However, When she uses this mode, she gets slim. We saw this slimming effect when Choji had a big fight. However, the Akimichi clan doesn’t like to look slim. They like their chubby forms. This episode will show her struggle to fight some goons during a mission.
This episode is based on a lighter plot. It shows the struggle of a side character who is not under the spotlight during the actual plot. This way, there is time to make the character more known to the audience. These filler episodes act as a transition period for the studio to plan for the next major arc.
Next in Boruto: Naruto Next Generations
We are getting to the most popular arc from the manga in the anime. The kara arc has gained immense popularity in the manga audience where the story is quite ahead of the anime. Do you remember Kawaki from the start of anime? The guy who supposedly toppled the whole leaf village upside down and killed the Hokage! Well, we are not there yet. But Kawaki is gonna make an appearance. Additionally, the mysterious organization Kara will be making its move.
I won’t spoil anything for you but the next arc is worth the hype. More intense fights, more of Kawaki, and more of Boruto’s hand mark. If you didn’t like the initial part of Boruto anime, this is the perfect time to get back to watching. The fun is just starting. Anyhow, this is it for me. Hope you liked the article. Do let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
Dragon Ball Super is the sequel to the hit series from the last decade called Dragon Ball Z. The anime series is based on its manga which is written by Akira Toriyama. Initially, the anime series received widespread criticism due to bad story writing and flawed animation. The movies Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods and Ressurection F were ruined in the first two arcs.
This article contains spoilers of the latest manga arc.
These problems were corrected later after the complaints and the further arcs were a hit. The filler episode between the main arcs was also great. The anime ended in the last year.
Dragon Ball Super Chapter 62 Release Date
The Release Date of Dragon Ball Super Chapter 62 is July 20, 2020. The next chapter will be available on the official website of VIZ. You can read it there.
The manga did not end after the Tournament of Power. It keeps moving the plot forward. The next arc is the Galactic Prison Arc. There was a breakout on the biggest prison of the Universe. A million-year-old wizard named Moro was kept in that prison for a long time. He gained some magic and managed to escape from that place. He took many other strong prisoners to find planets with high mortality.
A battle took place there where Vegeta and Goku were utterly defeated. Moro is too strong for them. Both of them escaped for training while Moro kept rampaging the universe. He was an old goat after the initial escape. However, he absorbed so many planets that he became young and carried immense Ki.
The Galactic Prisoner Arc right now?
Goku trained under Merus to learn the control of Ultra Instinct. Merus is a trainee angel that was the head warden in the Galactic Prison. The training was done in a room like the Hyperbolic Chamber. The training only worked for the initial omen form of Ultra Instinct. The form did not work against the immense Ki of Moro. Goku was defeated.
On the other hand, Vegeta went to Planet Yardrat. The people of Yardrat are not strong but they know techniques that can manipulate space and time. Vegeta was trained by “Pybara” and mastered the “spirit fission”. This worked effectively on Moro but the task was not completed. Moro escaped Vegeta and went to his ship to absorb. This was his back up plan. This absorption has transformed Moro who looks confident against Vegeta. He throws Vegeta down on the ground with a single punch. Now, the next thing is unclear. There is no one else who can save them at this point.
There was a point in the last chapter where it seemed like Moro was over. But it is not that simple. There will be more in this story. When this arc ends, Goku and Vegeta will have strengthened themselves. Then, there is a major arc coming which will involve many other universes and even the Omni-King. How do you think this arc will end? Do let me know in the comments!
Naruto ended a few years ago and Kishimoto decided to put the story to a close after the final novels. However, his assistant took charge of the Boruto manga. Boruto is the son of Naruto and Hinata who was born after Naruto became the 7th Hokage.

The plan fails, they both die at the hands of the five Kage and Boruto.
This article contains spoilers!
Boruto Chapter 48 Release Date
The Release Date for Boruto: Naruto Next Generations is July 20, 2020. You can read the full chapter on the release date at the official release site of VIZ.
Boruto and Kara
The Kara is the secret organization that is run by an Otsutsuki. He came to earth with Kaguya. Isshiki Otsutsuki lived inside Jigen and manipulated the ranks of Kara. Amado and Kashin Koji are high ranking members of Kara. Both have been in the group to take down the Otsutsuki. The Ultimate Goal of Otsutsuki is to eat the Chakra Fruit and evolve themselves. Otsutsuki is very hard to kill as well.
As we know, when Momoshiki Otsutsuki was killed by Boruto, he didn’t die. Boruto received a mark called Karma. After Amado left Kara and took protection from Leaf Village, he revealed key information about Karma. This mark is the backup life of an Otsutsuki. When they are about to die, Otsutsuki creates a copy of themselves and plant it on a nearby vessel. Soon, the file starts to get extracted and when the extraction is complete, the Otsutsuki is revived.
Jigen and Kawaki are the vessels of Isshiki Otsutsuki. Isshiki was on the brink of death at the hands of Kaguya Otsutsuki. In a desperate attempt to survive, he lived inside the brain of Jigen. Later, he gave Jigen the Karma. However, Jigen is not capable enough as a vessel. That is why Kawaki was recruited as the vessel. That is why Kawaki is so important to Jigen (taken over by Isshiki) to protect.
In the last chapter, Jigen’s body was destroyed forever as Isshiki Otsutsuki activated Karma. Due to this revival, Jigen is lost forever. This desperate activation happened due to Kashin Koji. The clone of Jiraya, probably created by Amado, Kashin Koji had pushed him to the limits. Koji is a curious character who has a decisive plan to take down Isshiki. Due to this Karma activation, Kawaki has also been saved.
In the upcoming chapter, we could see the end of Isshiki. Its a possibility but the plan could fail too. Koji is very strong but Otsutsuki is pretty much immortal. This makes it hard to just burn him in the flames and kill him. We have no idea what the technique saved for this task is.
The events of the last chapter were confusing. At the start, Kawaki was going to be the main villain. But he has lost Karma now. How will the manga turn him into the main antagonist? Let’s find out in the coming chapters!
The famous book series Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss has been on a hiatus for a while and at long last, the release date of its last part has been officially released. Amazon has revealed that the final chapter, which is also known as Doors of Stone will be released in august and its official release date has been confirmed as well. Fans have been anticipating this for a while, as it has now been years since the release of the last book in the series.
We will then take a look at the information made public about Doors of Stone release date. This book is based on a fantasy series and the upcoming one will be the final book in the series. There are three books in total in the series. The first book is known as The name of the wind and the second one is known by The Wise Man’s Fear. The last one, is known as Doors of Stone and will conclude the storyline of the entire series.
In the storyline of The Doors of Stone, it will be covering the adventures of the lead Kvothe which was left out in the first two books. The first two books described above covers the story that took place on one day each. So the entire series will be covering up three days’ worth of storytelling.
Doors of Stone Release Date
Doors of Stone will be released on 20 August 2020. Since the release date of the last chapter has kept changing over the years. The author of the book has revealed that he will no longer be chasing a deadline. But instead, the book will be released as soon as he is done working on it. So if it is early, the book can even be released earlier that the official release date.
But should things go the other way, then we would just leave that as a story for another day as this will only add more stress to the already exhausted readers who have been waiting for years. For hardcore fans of this works, it might be a little difficult to believe the news. But for now, since even Amazon, that will be selling the book upon its release, has confirmed that the release date is true and it will be on sale by then.
So hopefully they might push things on their end as they will have to chase the rising demand of this last book. So for now, let us wait to see what next month will bring with it.
The second half of this convulsed 2020 is here and so is the schedule for new shows —the ones that didn’t get hit by logistics problems in the production stage thanks to the Coronavirus pandemic—, “The Good Detective” is not one such example —it was initially scheduled to premiere on April this year— and one of the next ones to premiere in the following weeks.
The Good Detective runs for a total of sixteen episodes, a total of two months run. It is a drama about a man called Kang Do Chang, a veteran detective that was born and raised in Incheon that leans on his previous experiences and personal networks to solve cases instead of forensic sciences.

However, Shinra is still determined to find a way to turn the Infernals back into people. He also wants to unravel the mystery of the Evangelist and the Adolla Bursts.
The episode starts with Maki, Iris, and Tamaki take Shinra for shopping for clothes for Lieutenant Hinawa because of his poor dressing sense. They are suddenly interrupted by a series of explosions. When Shinra goes to investigate those explosions, he is attacked by a giant sentient Infernal who shoots balls of fire from its mouth. Arthur arrives to assist Shinra and they are soon joined by the rest of the Company 8. The group temporarily defeats the Infernal when Victor sheds light on the fact that the Infernal has five separate cores in its body and each core must be destroyed to kill the Infernal permanently.
The Infernal revives and the team starts collaborating to work according to the plan. Shinra attacks and destroys the central core with his powerful “Rapid-Man Kick” while the others destroy the core in its arms and legs. Shinra is introduced to the Fire Force annual male nude calendar project, by Captain Obi. However, their cheesy “double-cobra” pose results in Company 8’s photo being pushed to the last place again.

The anime revolves around the period of Year 198. Two hundred and fifty years before this year, The Great Disaster took place which lit almost the entire world on fire. Most of the planet became uninhabitable as many nations were destroyed by getting consumed in flames. The survivors took refuge in Japan’s Tokyo Empire which remained mostly stable even though Japan lost most of its landmass.
Raffles I, the emperor of Tokyo establishes the faith of Holy Sol Temple. Hajima Industries developed a perpetual thermal energy plant Amaterasu to supply power to the country. In the year 198, a special fire brigade was established named, the Fire Force who fought increasing incidents of spontaneous human combustion where human beings are turned into living infernos called, “Infernals”.
These Infernals underwent powerful horned variations thus resulting in the later generations possess pyrokinesis while retaining human form. The Fire Force was formed by combining people with these powers from the Holy Sol Temple, The Tokyo Armed Forces, The Fire Defense Agency, and eight other independent companies.
The story revolves around a third-generation pyrokinetic youth named, Shinra Kusakabe. He was called by the name, “Devil’s Footprints” for his ability to ignite his feet at his will. He is inducted into Special Fire Force Company 8 which features other pyrokinetics who dedicated themselves to the ending of the Infernal attacks.
Shinra learns about his younger brother’s abduction by a mysterious doomsday cult, during the fire that killed their mother 12 years ago. He also learns that the cult is responsible for all the Infernal attacks. Company 8 and their allies oppose the White Cloaks and their Knights of Ashen Flame, who seek certain individuals like Shinra and his brother Sho to enact a scheme to repeat the Great Disaster.
