Kekkai Sensen episode 08

Okay, I’m not even going to bother focussing on Zapp’s interest in some Burger King-wannabe employee. It’s just not really worth my time since that guy messed around all the time. I have yet to see him serious about anything.

[Ohys-Raws] Kekkai Sensen - 08 (BS11 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_09.05_[2015.05.25_23.30.27]But hey, that’s Zapp. I already thought that there was nothing interesting about Zapp or anything that even remotely relates to him. Yeah, I thought that, but then this awesome character shows up out of nowhere and starts hauling so much ass that he’s instantly tied with Klaus for my number one favourite character spot on this show. Seriously, this dude was so strange and yet so freakishly awesome that I couldn’t keep my eyes away from him. He looks weird, he talks weird and he fights like a true champ. Who knew that Zapp, a childish boar of a man, had a master like that? Shocking.

[Ohys-Raws] Kekkai Sensen - 08 (BS11 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_14.41_[2015.05.25_23.30.41]So this character whose name I failed to catch was fighting head to head with one of those blood breeds and defeated him without breaking a sweat. Sure, this particular blood breed may not have been “complete” during that time, but it doesn’t make that old guy any less amazing. He ‘pwned’ that blood breed and still managed to find time to put his disciple to the test.

Yeah, I definitely want to see more of that guy. I also don’t mind seeing a bit of that knew character that he was talking about. Apparently there’s another Zapp somewhere. What a dreadful thought. But hey, I’m liking this whole “Blood Dipper Style”. I could definitely do with a bit more of that, so go ahead and bring out that character.

Seraph of the End episode 08

I must admit that this episode was a remarkable improvement over the last one. I’m not saying that pace has finally picked up. There’s still way too much that needs to be explored and many gaps that need to be filled.

[Ohys-Raws] Owari no Seraph - 08 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_05.49_[2015.05.25_00.04.07]Yuuichirou finally showed us what he’s got. They, and by they I mainly mean that annoying little blonde girl, kept annoying him all day for not listening to orders and whatnot. And yeah, he didn’t really listen that good, but you know, that girl is still alive because he didn’t. She is still alive because he decided to ignore those orders and fight those bloodsuckers. He spared her from a dreadful death and he managed to kill a few of them in the process. Yes, definitely remarkable improvement over last week’s uneventful episode if you ask me. Without a doubt.

[Ohys-Raws] Owari no Seraph - 08 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_16.32_[2015.05.25_00.04.21]Okay, now, I would like to express my confusion about Yuuichirou’s weapon. I remember that demon saying that he needs to call out her name if he wants to benefit from her demonic powers. I have not yet seen him call her out, yet those tribal marks appeared on his face either way. Did he say it in his head? Does it work that way? Or has he simply not used the real deal yet? Because that would be strange, seeing as he encountered a noble this week and almost didn’t live to tell about it. I am really curious about how that power works and if he really needs to call out her name for him to receive her true power.

DanMachi episode 08

Another great episode. DanMachi started out so underrated because it was a little ecchi and people thought that it was going to be one of those cheap shows that cared more about fan service than giving us a good story. Wrong! It turned out to be a great show and the ratings now reflect that.

[HorribleSubs] DanMachi - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.44_[2015.05.24_00.23.00]This episode turned out quite nice. Bell-kun has been training with the sword princess for a whole week and even she could not believe how fast his progress was. This is both good and bad. It’s good that he’s making a lot of progress that might just end up saving his life more than once, but it’s bad that others are now starting to notice that there’s something abnormal about his progress. People get suspicious when he can do things that someone of his level shouldn’t be able to do yet, not to mention the fact that he’s clearing dungeons that other players would take months if not years to reach.

[HorribleSubs] DanMachi - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_12.56_[2015.05.24_00.23.09]Have I said that I absolutely love the pace in DanMachi? Of course I did. It’s amazing. I can’t say it enough. They didn’t waste any time on bringing out that powered-up Minotaur for Bell-kun to defeat. That insane goddess was watching in ecstasy as Bell-kun slashed that thing up as though tomorrow would never come for him.

The sad part is that he almost lost. Do you know what I want to see right now? A stats update that would put him in the same league as the sword princess. It would open so many doors. Sure, it would probably make him an overpowered character in no-time (which I would also love), but just image the possibilities… Bliss…

Sidonia no Kishi 2 episode 06

Okay, I’ve seen this week’s episode of Knights of Sidonia. Not very eventful, huh? Quite frankly; there’s really only one thing that I want to discuss at this point. Good thing I traded Ore Monogatari’s post yesterday. I’m short on time now and I would’ve hated to cut Ore Monogatari’s post short.

[Ohys-Raws] Sidonia no Kishi Daikyuu Wakusei Seneki - 06 (BS-TBS 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_04.30_[2015.05.21_23.29.38]I am completely going to skip over the part where Nagate and his girl found a place to live so their chimera friend can come to them without a problem. I just want to focus on the new weapon that has been built. It is a problematic situation because no one sees what’s coming yet. Everyone is still in the dark about those parasites.

The fired that weapon off and already it’s trying to do something. I don’t know if it’s looking for a hosts or if it’s looking for an energy supply, but something’s going down. And that captain is the worst now. She has changed completely. I don’t know if she, too, got infected by one of those things or if she’s always been that power-hungry, but she has to be stopped soon. Open your damn eyes already, Nagate!

Ore Monogatari!! episode 07

I forgot to watch Knights of Sidonia because I didn’t haul it in. I keep forgetting that HorribleSubs doesn’t cover that show so I have to search for it myself. But that’s fine; this week’s Ore Monogatari was pretty darn good.

[HorribleSubs] Ore Monogatari!! - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.45_[2015.05.20_23.38.07]So the hurdle continues. Takeo has a girlfriend now and Rinko now has a boyfriend. Very nice. It still puzzles me that Rinko was the one that wanted to be a little bit more physical instead of Takeo. Usually it’s the guy that wants to touch his girl more and more. Quite the interesting twist. I must say that the change hasn’t become quite clear to me yet. They still didn’t seem very close during this episode, and that’s not because Takeo had other things to worry about this time. I’m starting to wonder what the point of all of that was, really.

[HorribleSubs] Ore Monogatari!! - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.07_[2015.05.20_23.38.34]So Takeo was begged by a couple of Judo goons to help them out in their upcoming tournament. They really wanted to win this to boost morale and whatnot. Now, Takeo is a really good guy, so it’s not surprising that he instantly agreed to help, but he was willing to take a small break from dating his little girlfriend so that he could train for a month.

You know, all that’s really nice and all. I saw plenty of great scenes where I could enjoy Rinko’s adorable smile. That’s really nice. But hey, I am still waiting for Rinko to introduce her boyfriend to her parents. Aren’t you curious to see their reaction? I really want to see that happen. Her parents will probably be against it since most people judge books by their covers, so I am curious how Takeo’s going to fix that.

Kekkai Sensen episode 07

Oh man… I am going to start another rant again. I can feel it. Don’t you just want to smash the protagonist’s face in sometimes? Honestly. It’s a damn shame that it’s 2D, because if this was real then I would’ve risked jail time to punch that idiot.

[Ohys-Raws] Kekkai Sensen - 07 (MBS 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_10.51_[2015.05.19_23.21.34]Leonardo went out with that girl’s brother. He learned that she has a heart condition and that taking her out to see a movie may not have been a smart move, especially if something had happened. But hey, he didn’t know. He also doesn’t know that her brother, a blonde kid with glasses, is probably one of the most dangerous guys out there, which brings me to the following point; Leonardo really is an idiot. He talks openly with everyone and he goes along with everything. It’s like he trusts everyone after just one short conversation. He is so gullible that he’s bound to screw up big-time sooner or later.

[Ohys-Raws] Kekkai Sensen - 07 (MBS 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_22.07_[2015.05.19_23.21.51]And that kid? He’s probably the vampire overlord or something. He sure seemed important when he dropped the charade. Does that mean that the girl is a vampire too? Or was the boy turned? Was his body invaded somehow? All questions that will hopefully be answered soon when a war between vampires and everything else breaks out.

Who will win? If Leonardo is correct about there being thousands of them then I assume, based on what I’ve seen so far, that those creatures will win. Of course, Kekkai Sensen loves to introduce new characters, so there’s that possibility of a huge load of new powerhouses showing up during the next few episodes. We’ll just have to wait and see.

Seraph of the End episode 07

Well, I suppose this was a good episode? The pace is still sickeningly slow and I don’t think that’s going to get better any time soon, but at least we got to see some action this week. No more flashback scenes all the time.

[Ohys-Raws] Owari no Seraph - 07 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_09.10_[2015.05.18_23.51.53]So they finally went beyond their precious walls. They left the city to do a little bit of recon. Well, that’s fine. Kill a monster here and there, you know? But that’s when they come upon a trap set by vampires; a little girl being followed by a monster. So yeah, the boys couldn’t allow that girl to get killed by that monster when they had the power to prevent that. That loli girl, a new character that’s supposed to train them, warned them not to interfere as it was a trap, but they walked right into it anyway because they didn’t want to see the girl die.

[Ohys-Raws] Owari no Seraph - 07 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_15.23_[2015.05.18_23.52.00]Now comes the part that really disappointed me. Yes, those idiots fell into a vampire trap when they chose to save that girl. But that’s fine now. They have their brand new weapons and their new demon friends. They were up against a couple of low ranking vampires from what I could tell. None of them had demonic weapons so they, the boys, should have been able to defeat those vampires without it being too much of a problem. What happened? They started losing pretty badly and they even ended up retreating. I know they just got those weapons, but I am really disappointed by what I saw this week.

DanMachi episode 07

You know, someone mailed me yesterday and said; “GameDemon, you know, the anime has actually already caught up with the manga for as far as it has been translated.” Reading that actually put a frown on my face. I almost gave in and read the manga. I am really glad I didn’t now.

[HorribleSubs] DanMachi - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.46_[2015.05.17_23.38.30]Quite a lot has happened during this episode. And you know, I really think that Seraph of the End can learn from DanMachi. The pace of DanMachi is wonderful. It’s all moving along so nicely; rarely a dull moment. I mean, that little cat-girl ended up joining Bell’s little family against the wishes of his goddess, Hestia. Mind you, Hestia’s not a mean goddess. She just doesn’t like it if other girls get too close to her beloved Bell-kun. But hey, nothing new there, right? Hestia has always been devoted to him and can be quite the possessive girl when she wants to be.

[HorribleSubs] DanMachi - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.01_[2015.05.17_23.38.45]But yeah, I could see that one coming already. What I couldn’t see coming is that he, Bell-kun, would be reunited with the girl that he has been running away from all this time. Yes, the beautiful sword princess, Ais. It seems that she came to return something that belongs to Bell by contacting his guild advisor.

Yeah, did not see that one coming. She trapped him nicely so that he couldn’t run away again before she got to talk to him. Nor could I see it coming that she would end up training him a little when it comes to fighting properly. Who knows? They might actually get together at one point if they continue to spend more quality time together.
