Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen episode 18

I can remember how easy it was to write two or more posts a day when I still had my old job. I had very little to do during the day so all I ever really did was surf the web and write posts. Now that I have a job that actually requires me to work I noticed that writing multiple posts on the same day is quite challenging.

[HorribleSubs] Utawarerumono - Itsuwari no Kamen - 18 [720p].mkv_snapshot_12.31_[2016.02.08_23.33.05]I’ll just get right to it; I find it out that Haku is continuing on like normal. I mean, he found out that he is in fact ‘human’ and that the emperor is actually his older brother that created all those animal-eared humans. You’d think that he would be spending a lot more time at the palace, but no… Nothing seems to have changed.

Nobody knows about this (yet). Haku didn’t seem to want to profit from it. In fact; he’s going on yet another dangerous journey with his friends to delivery their allies some supplies so that they can continue their war. I just think it’s strange that the old man suddenly declared war like that. We have no idea what happened before that…

ERASED episode 05

This certainly was a kick in our protagonist’s nads. He went through all that trouble of going back in time (even though he himself has no idea how he did it) and it only seemed to make things worse if you look at the big picture.

[HorribleSubs] Boku dake ga Inai Machi - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.05_[2016.02.08_23.31.42]He did not save that poor girl. I imagine that her mother’s boyfriend is the one responsible for her death and that her mother is merely trying to cover it up or something. But yeah, she got murdered a little later anyway. She managed to make it to her birthday but that was all. Our poor protagonist had no other choice but to go back to his ‘own time’.

I will say that I find it kind of weird that his colleague, that interesting girl, is willing to do so much to help him. She even helped him at the cost of her own wellbeing after the murderer set her family’s house on fire with her still in it. It goes to show that our protagonist is getting closer (and making things a little bit worse for the sake of progress). I can’t wait to see what happens.

Heavy Object episode 17

Well, the boys may not have been caught doing something perverted this time, but that doesn’t change the fact that they’re once again up against an enemy Object. Some things will never change no matter how hard you wish for it.

[Ohys-Raws] Heavy Object - 17 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_05.54_[2016.02.07_00.44.14]Havia has it good compared to Qwenthur right now, even though the guy doesn’t yet realize it. He doesn’t have to worry about a backstabbing spy that is killing people one by one. First that depressing student, now Qwenthur’s new lady friend has been shot and Qwenthur himself might be next during next week’s episode.

It might be a little obvious, sure, but we all know that the girl is going to live. Qwenthur will too. I don’t know how they will get out of that situation, but I do know that it’ll be fine if Qwenthur is given enough time to think. Either that or someone will show up to save those two at the last second. God forbid that they would throw in a little bit of romance though…

Assassination Classroom 2 episode 05

I don’t even know where to start. Yes, this episode was amusing, but I really wonder when things are finally going to pick up. It’s almost like we are watching fillers at the moment.

[Ohys-Raws] Ansatsu Kyoushitsu 2 - 05 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_12.17_[2016.02.06_00.18.20]It’s a little obvious that I’m not really into it this week. Do I really care about watching the students of class E compete against the principle’s son once again? Not really. It’s pretty much always childish and nothing ever really happens. I just wish that the students of class E would show off a bit of their assassination training.

We all know that the principle is a total head case. The man is anything but stable and he might actually do something to the students of left unchecked. I think it’s about time that the students (if not the teachers) started doing something about him and his underhanded methods to oppress class E at any given moment of the day.

Dimension W episode 04

Say whatever you want about Dimension W, but there hasn’t been a dull episode yet. Every one of them seems to be packed with action and mystery. This is just another classic example of a show done right (provided it keeps going like this and they don’t mess up the ending).

[Ohys-Raws] Dimension W - 04 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_18.26_[2016.02.04_23.51.24]I’ll skip straight past that whole ghost nonsense since we all know that it’s just pointless to talk about. I will say that it’s quite ridiculous to have our robotic heroine worry about something as stupid as that. But hey, she makes things interesting. I still want to see what she’s capable of when she is forced to fight someone/something seriously.

I also wouldn’t mind knowing a little bit more about Afro-kun’s days as an elite soldier. We know that blondy was part of his squad and I’m pretty sure we’ll encounter more and more of those characters as we go along. And why not? Watching a battle between two or more of them will definitely keep your entertained. Oh, and sure, I don’t mind them finding more of those numbered coils.

Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans episode 17

It was quite obvious that something like this was going to happen. I wanted to write this post yesterday but it was such a horrible day that I simply didn’t have it in me. Not that I find it necessary this week; it was an obvious episode.

[HorribleSubs] Mobile Suit Gundam - Iron-Blooded Orphans - 17 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.31_[2016.02.04_23.45.45]The only thing that’s really worth mentioning is that the enemy, as one could only expect, has at least one Gundam as well. We knew this was going to happen since they, Tekkadan, obtain their second Gundam from enemy pirates that they defeated. I’m sure that the boys will defeat that cocky noble and take his suit. Or maybe they’ll end up stealing it. Either way; I’m pretty sure that they will get that suit somehow.

I don’t think it’s worth mentioning that the princess is going to use whatever little influence she has left to make a nice speech on television so that she can tell the world (or the universe in their case) about what the hell is going on and about all the things she’s seen so far.

Gate 2 episode 04

So I went to work today seeing as I was feeling a little bit better when I woke up. Big mistake. Now I feel like I’m about to die and writing this post is basically an extremely difficult ending to an already extremely difficult day.

[HorribleSubs] GATE - 16 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.33_[2016.02.02_23.47.49]This episode was so obvious and yet so entertaining that it’s quite easy to make this post short. I mean, that hostage damn near got killed after making it quite clear that she doesn’t care anymore whether she lives or dies, a soldier got hurt in the process and the culprit is dead. The mastermind? Obviously she’ll be getting away with it for now.

As for Youji and his quest to slay that dragon… Well… I suppose they will manage eventually when backup arrives, but I’m more concerned with hose those elves treated him and his friends after he came that way to basically kill that dragon before it could kill all of them. I would almost say that it’d be more fun to see him slay that dragon after it wiped out those elves.

Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen episode 17

What a fantastic episode! So many questions answered in one go! I love it! I thought that it was an amusing, far-fetched story, but now it seems that there’s a lot more to it than that. I am so glad I picked this show.

[HorribleSubs] Utawarerumono - Itsuwari no Kamen - 17 [720p].mkv_snapshot_00.18_[2016.02.01_23.11.50]I’m glad that they moved on. Watching a depressed Haku for too long would’ve really had a negative impact on the show. Instead they surprised us with one hell of an episode that basically explained the entire show in one go. I actually dare say that the story is actually plausible and not at all as sci-fi-ish as people thought it was.

To think an episode as this actually started out with Kuon treating Haku’s feed with some of her homemade ‘medicines’. You wouldn’t really expect to see anything as amazing as this after seeing something like that. They really tricked us big-time. Well done! I wouldn’t mind a lot more of episodes like these.

[HorribleSubs] Utawarerumono - Itsuwari no Kamen - 17 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.11_[2016.02.01_23.12.28]Now, I simply love what happened after Haku decided to amuse that old man and his stories. The mother of all twists arrived shortly after it turned out that humanity almost went instinct after most humans turned into those slimy things that they call curses. Those that didn’t turn were wiped out or died of natural causes. The only humans, apparently, are that old man and Haku, whom, apparently, turn out to be brothers. All other living creatures are basically created by that old man to keep him company. Amazing stuff. It’s going to be a pain to wait until the next episode. I want it now!
