Boost in Confidence!

Hello again, today I will review a manga chapter that was just recently released. This manga is called Shokugeki no soma. Specifically I will focus on chapter 69.

For those of you who haven’t read it. It is simply a cooking manga with competitions showcasing the different characters and how they evolve their own styles and strengths.


At this point in time of the chapter it involves a competition between two characters (Megumi and Ryou) as they battle it out to create the perfect ramen dish to serve to the judges.


The first few pages of chapter 69 explained the backstory for the character Ryou Kurokiba. It showcased him working in the restaurant (as a head chef) with his extreme personality, by bossing around the other chefs. He doesn't even hesitate as he scolds the chef and threatens to fire him. This backstory really explains the ruthlessness that Ryou portrays in his later cooking career.


As the backstory fades away, we are brought back to the kitchen arena and Ryou makes his feelings clear to Megumi. Stating that he dislikes seeing cooks getting along together. However, Megumi does not understand and tries to make him understand, however Ryou’s words really struck a cord with Megumi and she gains a great amount of motivation.


This then pushes Megumi to work intensely on her dish and finally she completes it. I find that this chapter really shows the rise in character for Megumi. Since the beginning Megumi hasn’t been the most confident, yet at the completion of this ramen broth it has yielded a much more asserted character.


This chapter really did push the story along, as well as to build the anticipation for the next chapter-The Tasting.

Fairy Tail Guild Returns?!?

Posted by [email protected] on May 11, 2014 at 3:50 AM Comments comments (0)

Hello and welcome to my first anime blog post on Anime Alley.


I am glad to announce that the first Anime review that takes place in Anime Alley would be from Fairy TailThis review will mark the episode (175) before the return of Fairy Tail, since it took an unanticipated break in March 30th 2013. 

For those of you who are new to Fairy Tail.

Fairy Tail is basically about a magical wizard guild that has adventures, with members looking for answers to their questions as they battle other guilds with evil intentions. Nevertheless, making new friendships and having fun with their guild mates.



Episode 175 returns to the Grand Magic Games arc after Natsu Dragneel embarrassingly defeated both Sting Eucliffe and Rogue Cheney from the guild Sabertooth.


Earning Fairy Tail another 10 points to their total score which pushes Fairy Tail to first place.


In my opinion Natsu, the beastly dragon slayer that he is, can never cease to amaze me. After every battle that you think he might lose, he pulls an ultimate dragon slayer technique out of the bag.


Even though Sting and Rogue boasted that their skills of a third generation dragon slayer is far better than the first generation dragon slayer, Natsu was able to prove them wrong and was able to take both of them down.


Overall this episode really made it really difficult to wait over a year to get another episode, however Fairy Tail has once returned and more battles are bound to happen.


Thank you for reading this first post on Anime Alley and Leave a comment telling me what was your most memorable part of Fairy Tail episode 175.
