I couldn’t stop myself from sighing throughout this episode. It was like warning a kid no to put his finger in an angry pit bull’s ass, only to see him do it anyway. The dog is going to kill you if you do something like that, of course.
It’s a strange comparison, but I could help it. I knew from the very beginning that it could only be trouble for Iwai and Kiri if they went to that party. They knew it, I’m also pretty sure they were warned, yet they went anyway and they faced the consequences. Sometimes it’s better to say no and leave than to try and fail.
The one thing that confused me the most is how composed Iwai and Kiri were when they saw that ridiculous play about Iwai’s life. Anyone would’ve gotten angry if they were being made fun of by a bunch of unknown people, and that is why I was confused when both Iwai and Kiri didn’t even look angry or upset.
It even got to the point where they themselves were called out on stage for everyone’s amusement. I knew it would go wrong, I knew Seigi couldn’t be far away and I knew that Iwai would only get in the way again. It’s quite rude of me to say, but Iwai really is useless when it comes to things like these. She’s simply too weak to do anything.
I have no idea what else to say right now. I’m pretty bummed out about Seigi’s abilities. They seem overpowered. Or maybe it’s Kiri that’s just too weak and inexperienced? Killing Goods cannot be destroyed, we know that, but that noose around Kiri’s neck shouldn’t fall under that? Kiri should be able to cut that noose, yet he swung around like a mad man on crack, hoping he might land a lucky hit… So strange…Read More
I am shocked. I am absolutely shocked. Here I was, trying to enjoy the action with a nice glass of cold Sprite, only to see how a lot of the characters are acting like idiots. Sometimes I just wish I could somehow ‘transport’ myself into the show so I could shove shoes up characters’ asses.
We discovered during last week’s episode that Ledo’s enemies also lives on earth. They may look slightly different from the ones he fought, but it turned out to be the same species nonetheless. So, I sat here watching with a smile on my face as I saw how Ledo tore that thing apart with the help of his faithful companion, Chamber.
Yes, that was very nice indeed, when suddenly I couldn’t even drink peacefully anymore after I saw how the characters reacted. They were shocked that he killed one of their “Whalesquids”, known to Ledo only as Hideauze. Ledo wanted to protect both himself and his new friends by killing that thing, so I definitely can’t blame him for that.
What really ticked me off is how the people reacted. They turned hostile and even aimed their guns at him again, even though they know full well that he could easily annihilate them in under a minute. Ridgett must have lost her mind to point her gun at someone that helped save them from those pirates.
It was aggravating to no end, but I can’t exactly blame them. It’s true that Ledo has to understand that things work different on earth. The Hideauze there might not be hostile, they might only attack when they’re being attacked. There’s still too much I don’t know before I can form a solid opinion. Maybe Ledo has decided to leave their fleet? Who knows…Read More
Is it just my imagination or are the characters in this show becoming more and more aggressive with each passing episode? I like it! There’s really very little to no room for pointless gags, just focus more on the romance and story!
It’s very safe to say that the roles have changed a bit. We have been introduced to another, bigger cat statue made of stone. This statue has been in the Tsutsukakushi family for generations and is said to grant any wish. That, unfortunately for Youto and his friends, appeared to be quite true. You don’t give human beings the ability to wish for whatever they want, it always ends badly. It’s within our nature to desire sex, power, knowledge and a lot more stuff that could very well get us killed. You don’t give that power to human beings, let alone to a bunch of teenagers that will only use such a divine privilege for their own good.
Mind you, it made the story a whole lot more interesting. It’s quite amusing to see Tsukushi seduce Youto with her glorious breasts and all, but I’d rather see what that statue is capable of and what kind of wishes those idiots will make. Ironically it was Azusa that made the first sex-related wish instead of Youto.
The next episode should prove to be quite troublesome though. Tsukishi wished for the world to be over, so I’m kind of having a hard time picturing romantic and funny scenes. I can only see scenes that would allow Youto to improve his relationship with Tsukishi, whom currently hates his guts. This is his chance to win her over.Read More
Oh my god, I think I had one. I think I actually had a nerdgasm. I laid eyes upon something so awesome that my geeky mind couldn’t process it’s awesomeness at once, causing the mother of all nerdgasms. Isn’t Shingeki no Kyojin in your top twenty-fice yet? Shame on you!
I can only say that there was just one thing wrong with this episode; Armin survived. He ended up telling Misaka about Eren’s untimely demise and she didn’t do anything to him, even though he actually admitted that it was his fault that he died, that he was too weak to protect himself and that he needed Eren to save him in the end. She did nothing.
Yeah, that was disappointing, but I can’t blame her. She was obviously in shock and only wanted to spend her last moments killing titans. It was actually her promise to Eren that made her want to survive that dreadful situation, because she was on the verge of giving up. I don’t know much about her yet, but I don’t think that giving up suits her personality well.
It wasn’t until she was driven into a small corner, awaiting death with her broken swords and her empty tanks of gas, that a bad-ass titan suddenly appeared out of nowhere and decided to haul ass and attack other titans, thereby saving Mikasa’s life in the process. That one scene simply made my day.
Now, I’ve heard rumors about Eren returning as a titan, and I, too, must say that that particular titan looked a lot like him. Hell, it was bigger, stronger and awesome-looking version of Eren if you ask me. So yeah, I’m kind of hoping that those rumors are true, because I definitely want to see a lot more of titan-on-titan action. Just a few more days till the next episode… Patience…Read More
Finally some long-awaited action! It wasn’t much but it’s always better than nothing. I wouldn’t complain at all if the remaining episode were like this one. I have said it before and I’ll say it again; comedy is what kills this show. A bit of well-timed comedy is great, but don’t go overboard with it.
I must say that this episode was a true eye-opener. You watch a show where Mikoto, a powerful “Level 5” esper and one of the main characters, is one of the strongest characters around, only to find out that she’s easily beaten by some insane, power-hungry freak that enjoys killing Mikoto clones as much as I like scarfing down hamburgers. At what point does one start to feel uncomfortable when watching this stuff? I’m not good with these types of insane characters to begin with, so I got freaked out pretty quickly, but I refuse to believe that that character could be labelled as interesting. He’s just an insane kid with a thirst for blood and power, nothing more.
I’ve also developed a theory as to why he appeared to be stronger than Mikoto. In fact, I’ve developed several, but I think the most logical explanation would have to be that he got stronger after killing so many of her clones. It may have given him a power boost or something, which would also prove their theory about pushing one or more of them to the next level.
The second half was kind of annoying after you’ve just seen an incredible match-up, yet it remained interesting somehow. There’s so much we don’t know about those clones and their plans to level some of the other espers. What to ‘they’ want? Stronger weapons to use against other countries? There’s still so much that needs to be explained…Read More
God bless you, Japan! It took us nearly two whole season to get to this point, but we’re finally here! This episode should put an end to all that “incest” crap. There’s nothing wrong with siblings loving each other and this episode should prove that.
I actually wasted half a bowl of microwave popcorn on this episode, you know that? I started watching with a full bowl but I barely ate any of it. It was exiting from beginning to end. How could it not be? It started right away with Ruri’s head-on confession, so I sat here watching with an open mouth and simply forgot that I had warm popcorn right next to me.
The most interesting part was when Ruri became even more aggressive and told Kyousuke what’s so good about her and why he should agree to go out with her. That’s really bold and uncharacteristic of her if you ask me. I never would have imagined her saying that, not in a million years. She often talks big but she’s clearly a very shy girl.
I quite honestly had mixed feelings when Kyousuke asked her to wait a day for him to give her an answer. He’s been thinking about her a lot, especially since she gave him a kiss on the cheek when he was about to leave for America. I understand that I could cause problems within their little group and that Kirino probably wouldn’t like it, but still…
Anyway, Kyousuke said yes. He gave her the best answer possible. I always thought that the two would be a great couple, plus Kirino benefits from it, because she gains a life-long friend this way (provided Kyousuke manages not to screw up their relationship in the future). I’m very interested in seeing how Kirino, Ayase and Saori will react to this news. Very interested indeed.Read More
Great, a flashback episode of the two least interesting characters… Why bother? I had so much hope… Space Brothers was slowly improving again, so I’m kind of bummed to have seen this episode to be very honest.
The start wasn’t that bad. I witnessed as Mutta didn’t even flinch when Vincent decided to give another one of his stupid speed-tests. It was funny when Mutta didn’t flinch, seeing as he experienced something a lot rougher on the day Hibito finally took off. Now that’s decent comedy that people can laugh at.
I’m a little disappointed in Mutta again though. He wasn’t really worried because he experienced something worse? Dude, you used to design cars, how could anyone that designs cars possibly be afraid of them? He knows how fast they go, so is it because he didn’t trust his life in that old man’s hands? I don’t know…
The rest was kind of an anti-climax. It wasn’t very amusing, it wasn’t really helpful to the story and it was barely entertaining. The only thing that changed was my opinion of Vincent, and that only changed slightly. I, too, would’ve turned out as a tight-ass if all the people around me told me I should aim low and give up on my dreams. I mean, teachers doing that is bad in itself, you need to shoot those teachers on the spot, but it’s quite terrible when their own parents tell them to aim low as well. You’d think that a parent would want nothing more than for their offspring to aim for the top, right? Shame…Read More
Are you seriously kidding me? I cannot believe I actually saw what I think I saw during this episode. Maybe it’s me that keeps forgetting that this is a romantic comedy? I don’t know, I guess I do that sometimes when I get caught up in the story.
I guess it’s safe to say that Sadao’s harem gained another member, a certain Suzuno Kamazuki. Is it a coincidence that she appeared after those high priests started a conversation about what to do with Emi and Sadao? I don’t know. It all seems way too easy to me. I wouldn’t be surprised if she was sent there to observe and/or kill them.
Her motives aside, let’s focus on the fact that she fell in love with him after managed to catch her before she could fall to the ground during the last minute of last week’s episode. Is that actually believable? No way. It looks way too perfect; she lives next to them now, she cooks for them, lends them stuff like bento boxes and got only knows what else she does for them. Nobody is that nice.
It seems that Emi was the only one against it. Sadao, Shirou and Hanzou are probably too stupid to see what’s really going on, but Emi knew that Suzuno had a thing going there and ended up warning her about Sadao. This in itself isn’t really that surprising, as she did the same thing with Chiho, but what really bothers me here is that she doesn’t seem to realize that she’s talking to someone that came from the same world as she did, provided I’m right about the whole thing. Surely Emi should be able to recognize her “own kind” almost right away? That really gave me quite a lot of headache because I couldn’t stop thinking about that… It’s why I really want to see the next episode right away…Read More
