This episode sure moved along a lot slower than I had imagined. This season, if I am not mistaken, only has twelve episodes. Yet Ken’s journey isn’t even well underway yet. For them to spend this much time on that many pointless scenes… I don’t know what to think of that.
One of the most interesting scenes in this episode was when Akira tried to kiss that idiot partner of hers. He has had such a terrible life and one good thing pops up and he denies himself that. I mean, you are about to go to war against a lot of powerful ghouls and you get the one chance to laid with the woman you’re probably going to end up with, so for him to deny himself that… Idiotic.
So the old man whipped out of Kagune and assumed the role of the One-eyed Owl and already took down at least one or two dozen soldiers before those two powerhouses showed up. I don’t think they are strong enough to take him on, but should more of their friends appear… Who knows? I just hope Ken shows up in time before too many of his friends end up dead.Read More
Okay, this was an expectable outcome but I do not at all like how things went down. It has a strange twist that made this episode and the last few episodes seem quite odd. I wonder why they did it like this to be honest.
I was really looking forward to seeing this episode. That super parasite was absolutely unstoppable. Wave after wave of soldiers came in and only ended up getting killed without even doing any real damage. You can shoot him with machine guns, shotguns or even grenade launchers. It won’t do you any good because he’ll either dodge it all or he’ll use a shield to reflect the bullets. You can’t hope to beat something like that with standard weaponry. They said something about napalm strikes and whatnot, but I doubt that something like that would be enough to kill him. He’d just run like hell or somehow shield himself from it.
What bothered me is that these episodes were all about humanity striking back. About humanity taking control over this parasitic threat. Then I am shown a scene where Shinichi suddenly wakes up in his bed and the viewer, me, are left to wonder if the past few episodes actually happened or if it was all a dream that Shinichi had.
So what if Shinichi, thanks to that girl, finally became a man after all this time? I am more interesting in knowing how he’s going to deal with that monster. He cannot fight it head and with tactics he’d probably only get one chance to do some damage, and even that probably wouldn’t be enough to finish him off. I really, really want to know!Read More
Okay, I am keeping this post short because of the fact that I pretty much predicted this entire episode ahead of time. I find that very disappointing, especially seeing as Kamisama Kiss has never been all that predictable before.
I’m sure we all knew that Nanami was going to interfere one way or the other. She always sympathizes with others so easily and she always tends to stick her nose where it doesn’t belong. So yeah, not at all surprised when she walked up that mountain and got caught by some big Tengu. It was sad that she ran away after being scared to death like that, but it was her own fault this time.
The worst part is that she got so scared that she was actually trembling, but now she’s going back there again even though she knows full well that women aren’t allowed on that mountain, which makes me wonder how those bird-guys reproduce. Nanami is simply looking for trouble, although she probably expects that Tomoe will come to her rescue this time.Read More
I am truly exhausted. I don’t even want to write this post to be very honest. Still, I think this show is worth a post even if it’s going to be short this time, although the episode definitely deserves a big post if you ask me.
So Maria got attacked by Ezekiel and is now recovering. The word has spread far and wide and people now know that they can go to war without having to worry about outside interference. This will mean a lot more casualties and a lot more conflict. The question is if England will actually survive at the end of the day now that they don’t have Maria to stop them from going to war.
The church has worked so hard to get rid of Maria. Now they got what they wanted. I’ll be looking forward to seeing them crawl back to Maria at the end of the day. And is it just me or have those people been poisoned somehow. People are slowly becoming more and more obsessed with the church and are starting to think negatively of Maria. I wonder what’s that about?Read More
Okay, I personally consider this episode the calm before the storm, even though it was filled with a lot of awesome action. I have a feeling that the action in this episode is going to be nothing compared to the action we’re about to see.
Let’s tackle the action bit first; Inaho and the rest of his friends and colleagues were fighting off two (I think?) mechs. It was difficult. One was invisible and the other was using electricity to defend and attack at the same time. I’m not sure if that was the same mech or even the same battle, but it was pretty darn awesome. I also think it was the first time where Inaho was actually cornered. He usually has a plan and things usually go according to that plan, but now he was getting pushed back badly. It actually made me wonder how he would ever face Slaine if he couldn’t even deal with guys like that.
Anyway, princess Asseylum has awakened and she is starting to remember all sorts of things. The other princess, whom is clearly losing bits and pieces of her sanity, found out that her ‘dear’ sister had disappeared from that container and probably knows that something’s up. Even that handmaid girl called Eddelrittuo is beginning to question it at all as well.
This episode really made me respect Inaho even more, despite the fact that he got pushed back. He let that blonde count go back to his people in order to find out more information about princess Asseylum. It just goes to show how far Inaho plans ahead and how well his plans work out. He took a chance and it seems that that chance is about to pay off.Read More
Oh, okay… Not exactly the kind of episode I expected, but I suppose there were a few interesting scenes. And, unfortunately, a few disappointing once as well. I suppose that’s how it always goes, isn’t it?
So last week’s episode went by quickly and I was really surprised to see them go on a class trip so soon. I kept thinking about what the angle of it was. I mean, first those children are forced to make an unfairly modified test to make sure they get poor grades. Now they are sent to another part of the country on a field trip right after they finished their exams. One cannot help but to think about the real reason as to why they’ve been sent on that trip. There is always a reason, especially when class E is involved. I just can’t put my finger on it…
Anyway, some of the students got abducted by a small group of thugs and I immediately started to think about the idea of it. Where they ordered to do so? If so; what was the point of it all? I just find it a very strange twist in the story. Were those students just at the wrong place at the wrong time? Was it really all a coincidence?
There is only one thing that I know for sure; it’s a damn shame that Koro-sensei interfered. I would’ve liked to see those students solve it themselves without that alien showing up to solve it for them. They are being trained as killers for god’s sake; at least let them defend themselves against a group of thugs like that.Read More
Thank you, Japan. You officially killed Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso for me. The single most loved character on the show is about to kick the bucket in order to make things more dramatic? What a stupid idea if you ask me.
I don’t know how much longer Kaori-chan will live. This could be my second last post because she might die next week. I still don’t know what’s wrong with her, only that she agreed to have surgery so that she may live a little longer. I can only imagine that it’s a brain tumour or some other type of cancer that’s surging through her body.
Anyway, I listen to a bit of music at the end and it was quite nice, but I just couldn’t shake the thought of Kaori dying soon. I simply can no longer enjoy the story as much as I did at first. Kousei is making such remarkable progress and I can’t sit here and enjoy fully because I know that my favourite character is about to die a horrible death.Read More
Another great episode. So what if there wasn’t a lot of action? It continued something of much more value. You can’t love a show where there’s fighting during every single episode. You need to mix things up a little bit.
This episode was perfect for that. We basically got a little history lesson about the old man and how he used to live his life. He was all alone and only cared for his own survival. He killed and killed until he came across a young woman whom ended up stealing his heart. They lived together and did a lot of things together, including making a child together, which led to them being targeted for doing this impossible. A child from both a Ghoul and a human was supposedly impossible, yet they did it and the woman got killed for it and the child now missing.
It was a very interesting story and the old man lived a very interesting live. It’s too bad that they didn’t actually show us how he became a Ghoul, but that’s alright. It was quite interesting to see how he lived and why he changed to become the man he is today. It’s no wonder that other Ghouls choose to follow him out of their own free wills.
Nevertheless, he may have lived the last part of his life as peacefully as he possibly could considering the circumstances, but he and his friends are still Ghouls, which has caught the attention of the local authorities. The next episode should prove to be quite interesting as both the old man and his friends will have to defend themselves against many, many Ghoul-killing soldiers.Read More
