Tokyo Ghoul episode 09

I knew it. I knew this was going to be an episode about those Doves. One of them died again last week, so I knew that this episode was going to revolve around him. I can only hope that this was the last one, seeing as he’s not exactly all that interesting.

[Ohys-Raws] Tokyo Ghoul - 09 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_04.00_[2014.08.29_23.25.43]We all knew that Koutarou, that junior dove, had been trained by Kureo. I must admit that that scene about that old lady Ghoul was pretty cool. But yeah, I am just not interesting Kureo. The guy was a creepy, power-hungry monster that simply took too many lives. I don’t care about his story or his reasons. Not even if his entire family was massacred by Ghouls or something like that. He killed old Ghouls, young Ghouls and probably even Ghouls that chose not to fight (like Hinami’s father).  He simply got what he deserved.

[Ohys-Raws] Tokyo Ghoul - 09 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_22.12_[2014.08.29_23.26.14]My problem with Tokyo Ghoul right now is that Ken is still weak. He knows how to use some of his Ghoul powers now, but he’s afraid to lose control. He still knows very little and his progress is slow at best. He finally has his mask and fought against an enemy, but yeah… Not much progress… Even though a lot of Ghouls from other districts are coming to visit him. He’ll probably have to fight for his life after all those Ghouls find out about him. It just makes me even more curious about Rize. All those Ghouls have come to that city just for her. I really want to know why…

Majimoji Rurumo episode 08

What a strange episode. I already has a vague idea of what was going to happen when I watched the preview last week, but this pretty much exceeded my expectations. Even more reason to start thinking about a second season, Japan.

[Anime-Koi] Majimoji Rurumo - 08 [h264-720p][CE292C37].mkv_snapshot_03.50_[2014.08.29_23.24.48]So little girls now come falling from the skies, giving perverts like Kouta an eyeful of glistening purple panties. Not that I, the viewer, had time to admire her panties though. I was more focussed on her enormous head. I think it was her outfit, because she landed and I saw one hell of a head on a pair of tiny shoulders. That was insane. Her freaky cat didn’t make things any better either. That thing looks like its planning to commit mass murder. No wonder that Chiro doesn’t like those two. I’m just glad that that cat didn’t say anything in the end.

[Anime-Koi] Majimoji Rurumo - 08 [h264-720p][CE292C37].mkv_snapshot_15.13_[2014.08.29_23.25.10]So this little girl comes floating down and offers Kouta a free ticket to some magic. Not very surprising that he wished for something that would allow him to fulfil his perverted needs. It’s just that her need to seek Rurumo’s affection is just too weird. All the characters have gotten used to Rurumo’s pokerfaced reactions. No need to follow her around…

She left in the end, but I am certain that she will return again. I am sure of it. In fact, I think that she’s going to be the one to tell Rurumo about what happens when she completes her witch training, after which Rurumo will probably quit. I don’t think Rurumo would do anything that would harm Kouta, not now that she has fallen for him.

Ao Haru Ride episode 08

This whole story is just going back in forth. It’s almost like watching a random child that’s plucking leaf petals from a flower. “She loves me, she loves me not, she loves me, she loves me not…” It’s quite annoying if it goes on for too long.

[HorribleSubs] Ao Haru Ride - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.03_[2014.08.28_22.50.36]So Futaba finally managed to find the courage to tell Yuuri about her feelings for Kou. I think it’s quite admirable how Yuuri dealt with the news. Sure, she was bit surprised and rather sad, but she took it very well. Besides, she doesn’t strike me as the type of character that will do anything to get what she wants. I think she’s as straight as an arrow. That is why I’d rather see her win that Futaba, but that’s obviously not going to happen. Futaba is just way too fussy and has quite a few problems, and I don’t think that their past should give her the edge, even though it obviously does.

[HorribleSubs] Ao Haru Ride - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.37_[2014.08.28_22.50.58]Quite frankly, the only one that I’m actually rooting for is Shuuko-chan. So what if she has a crush on her teacher? They aren’t extremely far apart when it comes to age, so why not? Just wait until Shuuko-chan graduates and date her. Date her now if you think you can keep it quiet… I only say that because I think that Kou’s older brother is a good guy, of course.

Was there any actual progress? I don’t know. Futaba told Yuuri about her feelings for Kou and says that she’s seriously going after him now. I never thought she would literally follow the guy around town like he has honey stuck to his ass. I just hope that Kou will notice her feelings soon. It’s time that he, too, grows up a little instead of acting like a sad, attention craving child.

Akame ga Kill! episode 08

Jesus, this is going fast. This show is completely insane. The author creates all these interesting characters and later kills them off one by one. How messed up is that? It makes it damn near impossible to predict the next step.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.50_[2014.08.27_16.19.50]Sheele went first. She died during her fight against Seryuu and her insane little friend. Now it’s Bulet, self-proclaimed hero and first class fighter, that gives up his life in a fight against his old general. The old man seems to have given up on their justice system after they tried to have him killed. That ice queen, Esdeath, sent three of her best men after Night Raid and all three ended up getting killed. Night Raid ended up losing yet another powerful member, which in turn ended up making Tatsumi stronger than ever, now that he has inherited Bulat’s Imperial Arms.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.50_[2014.08.27_16.20.06]The thought of Tatsumi shouting “Incursio!” during every episode is kind of strange, don’t you think? It’s obvious that Tatsumi will be transforming all over the place, but he doubt that he, too, will be fighting off enemies with some kind of spear-type weapon. I for one can’t see him wielding any weapon other than a sword.

I wonder how the other Night Raid members will react to this news. They lost yet another member in few days’ time. Will they even have time to mourn his death now that more enemies keep popping up all over the place? I don’t know. I just can’t wait to see Najenda join the fight. She has yet to do any real fighting even though she’s their leader. It’s about time she showed us some of her moves…

Barakamon episode 08

Seishuu’s friends have gone back to Tokyo after seeing how he was doing. This made me believe that Seishuu would start to focus a bit more on his work. Boy, it is quite painful to see how incredibly naïve I was. There’s no way that Seishuu will leave those kids alone or vice versa.

[HorribleSubs] Barakamon - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_00.43_[2014.08.26_13.40.21]So it’s Naru’s birthday and the whole group is practically going nuts about getting her gifts and preparing a surprise party. Seishuu did not escape this insanity and joined a group of boys to hunt down insects to give Naru as a gift. You know, I’ve never once met a little girls that actually liked insects. To think that those exist…

I must say that it was quite painful to see Seishuu play along with those kids. He kept hurting himself, he couldn’t even catch a single bug and the one that he did catch ended up getting killed. You’d think that this would only be a scene of a couple of minutes, but no… This was pretty much half of this week’s episode.

[HorribleSubs] Barakamon - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.10_[2014.08.26_13.41.00]I don’t care though. I learned a lot more about Naru and her charm just got bigger. She is still the most adorable character on the show and she just keeps getting cuter. I actually got a little choked up when she said that she got quite bored and sad whenever she has to watch over her grandmother’s grave during some kind of special day. It just got to me when she said that this year was so much better and enjoyable since she had Seishuu to keep her company. Her grandfather, supposedly her last blood related relative, won’t be with them for much longer if you consider his age, so I’m guessing that Seishuu will play an even bigger role in her future (not that something like that would actually happen on Barakamon, of course).

Sword Art Online 2 episode 08

Ah, this sucks! I was writing this post yesterday when suddenly a blackout decided to ruin my plans to write and schedule this post, forcing me to start this post all over again because I couldn’t save it. Well, I do it willingly since this particular episode was so damn good.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.01_[2014.08.26_13.39.16]The pace suddenly just picked up. I thought this was going to be another one of those slow episodes where Kazuto made his way to the finals, but no… This turned out to be a lot more than that. I’m not sure if I have this right, but I think this may actually be the finals. They put thirty something players in a big field and let them fight it out amongst themselves. One player is supposed to remain standing (if I understood correctly) and come out as the sole winner of this match. Normally I wouldn’t by fazed by this, but I am getting quite excited since Kazuto, Shino and Death Gun are all on the map. This means that only one of them will win, right?

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.52_[2014.08.26_13.39.47]Kazuto is still worried about that guy. Does he really have the power to kill someone with some in-game weapon? He doesn’t know, nor is he willing to take any risks. He told Shino to stop Death Gun from killing that guy because he thinks that his victim might die in real life, too. Kazuto is really taking this seriously. The fact that Death Gun is an old Sword Art Online player from a player killing guild must’ve sealed the deal for Kazuto. He’s completely serious and has been acting like a nervous, panicky little brat since he had that talk with Death Gun. I’m quite interested to see how he will deal with this situation next week.

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei episode 21

I honestly don’t understand this episode. So many strange events and so many vague scenes… What can I expect from this, I wonder? At this point I’m just waiting for Tatsuya to go wild again. Just let him annihilate all the enemies.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 21 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.47_[2014.08.23_23.02.49]So the girl that tried to spy (and sabotage?) Tatsuya’s work has finally been caught. She returned when he was doing god only knows what, only to be seen by one of Tatsuya’s friends whom recognized the device she was using to hack his computer. She ran away again, just like last time, but got caught in the end. You’d think that they would no longer acknowledge her as someone from the same school, but they brought her to the nurse’s office and treated her like she were the queen. They didn’t even bother tying her up or something. What a pointless turn of events…

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 21 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.34_[2014.08.23_23.02.58]I just hope I get to see something nice before the show ends. Leonhart seems to have a thing for Erika, which probably got stronger after catching a glimpse of her half naked body. Mikihiko and Mizuki like each other even though they’re both too shy to do anything about it right now. Seriously, a little bit of romance at the end would do this show a lot of good.

Anyway, it’ll probably end with Tatsuya saving the day again. Those terrorists (if I can call them that) are after the technology that Tatsuya’s currently working on. It’s only a matter of time before Tatsuya has to face them and my money’s on him. It wouldn’t be his first time to take down an evil organisation and it probably wouldn’t be his last.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 373

Meh. That one word is the best way I can describe this episode. No surprise in my decision to keep this post short again. For all the Naruto fans out there; the manga is much, much better than the anime. They tend to overstuff the anime with useless recaps, you see.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 373 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.25_[2014.08.23_23.02.22]It was all going so very well… The Hokage’s were hauling ass, their barrier held the Ten Tails’ attack and for a second there it seemed as though the First Hokage was about to take on Madara, whom ended up declining because he hates the idea of fighting a clone, which I thought was rather cool. He may be an overpowered bad guy, obviously, but he does have a sense of pride.

Things soon got screwed up when Sakura ended stealing the spotlight. I never really liked Sakura. I always thought she was naïve, hypocritical and petty. I’ve always seen her as the third wheel of Team Seven. It was always Naruto or Sasuke that had to save her in the end. To think that I was watching a lot of Sakura recaps… What a damn shame.
