I’m guessing that Mamoru’s conquest to role yet another weight class has been put on ice until Ippo’s match over and done with. Too bad, I was actually looking forward to witness yet another one of his dominating rampages in the ring.
So Ippo realized one of his fatal weaknesses and decided to fix it, huh? Well done, shorty. He decided that he would still use the Dempsey Roll’s initial pattern, which would be a figure eight movement and blows from blind angles. He thinks that the problem doesn’t necessarily lie with the Dempsey Roll’s in general. He intends to train his muscles so that he can stop the Dempsey Roll’s attack pattern when he’s already in motion and change direction, allowing him to disrupt the Dempsey Roll’s usual movement and land lots of punches that his opponent wouldn’t expect at the time. This, from what I could tell, puts a lot of strain on person’s muscles.
There’s one thing that I just can’t figure out. The pace was pretty darn high when the season first started, and I liked that a lot, but the pace has dropped and we’re still wasting time on that dreadful character and his big, Kanye West-like ego. Is there seriously anyone out there that gives a damn about this character?
Mind you, I got pretty excited when he almost hit Kumi-chan in the face. It would’ve done a lot more damage if Ippo didn’t step in when he did, but that’s not the point here. The point is that he harmed Ippo’s girl, making me hope that he’s going to be mad as hell during his next match. I think it’s awesome to see that guy fight when he’s angry as hell.Read More
Yeah… I had a family something like this was going to happen. Last week’s episode kind of gave it away. Still, there’s no doubt in my mind that both Raul and Fino are going to continue working in that shop until the show is over and done with.
Last week’s episode already gave it away when Fino was mercilessly attacked in order to make her the next demon lord. It’s quite clear that culprit wasn’t looking for power, otherwise he/she would’ve taken the title of demon lord himself/herself. That’s when I knew that there was a lot more to it than that, and so I started thinking… Whom would benefit the most when Fino becomes the next demon lord? I have to be honest and say that Amada was at the top of my list with yet another scheme to put their opponent, Leon, out of business by making one of its employee’s the next bringer of doom.
I was quite surprised when it was actually Raul’s old friends. I’m pretty impressed because it actually does make a little sense. Heroes no longer have a job now that the enemy has been defeated, so it was their plan to ‘create’ a new enemy for them to defeat. It’s so clever and yet so obvious… Proof that a brilliant mind created this story!
It left me with one big question though. If those heroes wanted work, probably to make money, why not just take someone else’s money? Heroes are supposed to be strong, right? Why not just take whatever it is you want and do your best to get away with it. It’s either that or they simply want lots of fame as heroes.Read More
Ha! I laughed pretty hard during this episode. Not because it was funny, not because it was all that interesting and certainly not because it was the best episode I’ve seen in a while. I laughed because certain expectations of mine were met.
Remember how Kenji practically stabbed Mutta in the back by shutting down most (if not all) of his suggestions? Remember how cold he acted towards him by pretending he wasn’t even there? Then, do you also remember how Mutta whipped him good when he came up with countless ideas to save time and still get everything done on time? It was so funny to see Kenji try to come up with ideas of his own, probably hoping to catch the eye of some of the people at NASA. That guy is definitely a crawler and certainly not leadership material. He almost immediately changed his ways when he saw his opportunity to go to the moon go out the window.
I must honestly say that I’m truly surprised by Mutta’s capabilities. I knew he was quite the thinker and capable of working under pressure, but it’s no secret that he exceeded pretty much all of my expectations. I don’t usually root for the main characters because they’re the best, but I’m making an exception in his case.
Hell, it didn’t even surprise me when his name came up at the top dogs’ meeting. They said, and I quote; “Mutta was the only one that actually seemed to be on the moon during the NEEMO training”. Now that’s impressive! Truth being told, I, too, think that Mutta would do a lot better up there than his little brother. I have no idea why though.Read More
Would it be creepy if I ordered a punching bag online, printed out a pic of Makoto, that cheating lowlife that they’re currently playing against, and pasted it on said punching bag? I could definitely do with one of those. Hang it up in the hallway so that I can unleash some frustration every now and then.
Anyway, I’m still quite agitated by how things are going. I’m also quite disappointed by how slow the pace has gotten because of such an uninteresting match. We know what’s going to happen. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a cheating team win in any anime. That’s what makes the outcome of this particular match so annoyingly predictable.
I’m also annoyed because that guy, Makoto, is doing everything he possibly can to cheat his way to victory when he possess skills that would enable him to win his matches without cheating. He supposedly has amazing memory and he still resorts to cheating? That’s incredibly sad and a total waste of talent.
I’ll stop here because it almost seems as though I’ve got nothing good to say this week. I don’t think I said a lot of positive things last week either. It’s because of this annoying match that pisses me of. Everything I see a team of cheaters I start to get annoyed. That’s why I never watch soccer, a sport where a lot of drama queens pretend to be players. The only difference between this and soccer is that the drama queens in soccer actually win a game or two because of their crappy acting from time to time. In anime that just doesn’t happen for as far as I know; the “good guys” pretty much always win in the end.Read More
Heh, I bet a lot of you that don’t read the manga didn’t see this one coming, huh? I can’t blame you. I read the manga as soon as it comes out (because I have to, I’m a die-hard geek) and I still pretended as though I didn’t see it coming. Just because I can.
So Sasuke has once again made up his mind. I cannot begin to count the amount of times where he made the wrong decision and had to revise it in order to minimize the damage it’s done. I’m fairly certain that this is one of those mistakes, and quite possibly a big one, too. Nothing happened in the manga, but I can see it coming alright.
Maybe it’s because I haven’t seen him in a while or maybe he just is, but that Suigetsu is one annoying character. He never shuts up, acts as though he’s a high school girl and has a mouth so big that he makes Kanye West look timid. I seriously don’t like that idiot. Please make some unknown character kill him already.
Anyway, Orochimaru is back. Sasuke found a way to bring him back by using Anko’s curse mark to draw him out. I still find it difficult to understand, but, provided I’m right about this, this is just another one of Orochimaru’s ‘parts’. He somehow duplicated himself by using the curse marks. I’m probably half-right or completely wrong about this, but that’s how I saw it.
There is really only one question that’s haunting me right now. How many more episodes until we get another sh*tload of fillers? These past few episodes have been great and I cannot help but feel as though that’s about to change since the anime is catching up to the manga quite fast. I’m just going enjoy it for the time being.Read More
What in heaven’s name did I watch? Was this really a regular Kyoukai no Kanata episode? It was so unnecessarily confusing that I almost stopped watching. It’s strange to see this episode after we just finished watching two filler-like episodes that had no real impact on the story.
Some would probably describe this episode as an amazing and/or interesting twist. I don’t know about that. The start was confusing as hell and in my humble opinion they didn’t really explain it very well. There are still pieces of the puzzle that are missing and I can only hope that those are found during the next couple episodes, otherwise the story just doesn’t make sense anymore.
The start was completely off. I have been paying close attention to Mirai-chan, one of the cutest and more interesting characters on the show, so I immediately noticed her strange personality. She was so focussed on being with Akihito that she did things that she normally wouldn’t dare to do. Mirai has never been that aggressive.
It became even weirder after that when it became known that Mirai isn´t exactly ´there´ anymore. Akihito was dreaming all this time after Mirai extracted that youmu from his body. I´m not sure if that youmu escaped or simply used Mirai as a host for now, but things have gotten really weird and I´m not at all sure I like it.
I didn´t get the ending either. What was that supposed to tell me? I don’t get it at all. The only thing that’s going through my head right now is that Mirai-chan might be gone for good even though it was everyone’s plan to kill Akihito instead of her. I’m not sure if three episodes will be enough to answer all the questions that this episode caused. We’ll see…Read More
I’ll be keeping this post short because I have very little I want to say about this week’s Freezing Vibration episode and I don’t want to lower the already shockingly bad quality of my posts by ranting on about something that doesn’t even matter.
Well then, shall we start by pointing out that everything’s still so damn predictable? Almost all the Pandoras found out about the experiments and some of them agreed to help the E-Pandoras in their attempt to escape the facility. It was no surprise to see Satellizer and a grossly depowered Kazuya on the frontlines.
The predictability, unlike my interesting in this show, keeps growing and one can almost see the ending. They are probably going to wait another episode or two before revealing yet a few more little secrets that involve either that professor and/or that Pandora, who’s probably related to Kazuya somehow. Choosing this over Noukome or Gingitsune may have been a mistake after all.Read More
Is it safe to me to say that I was pretty much right about everything during my last Yowamushi Pedal post? This part was so obvious that it was almost funny. It’s almost as though they actually “stole” the ending from Over Drive.
So I was right, Sakamichi managed to peddle his skinny ass up that mountain and actually reached the top before Shunsuke. It may not have been a real race, but to think that I was completely right about pretty much everything… You will just have to believe me when I tell you that I haven’t read the manga at all. It’s just that I noticed a lot of similarities between these past few episode and the ending in Over Drive. Both were delightful to watch and I really enjoyed this week’s episode, although I still believe that they need to cut back on worshipping one particular character.
Who is Shunsuke anyway? That character strikes me as a textbook control freak. He always seems so obsessed with winning that nothing else really matters. He almost sacrificed his victory in order to race Sakamichi for the mountain title. I understand that all of those characters want to win, but Shunsuke really seems obsessed.
It didn’t really surprise me that Shunsuke defeated Shoukichi. He really had a hard time climbing that mountain, so I wouldn’t be surprised if he used up a lot of energy to overcome that obstacle. I’m guessing next week’s episode is going to be all about training. I’m actually looking forward to seeing what they’re going to do.Read More
