Tokyo Ghoul √A episode 04

What kind of a weird twist is this? This is just like any other anime at this point. First the Protagonist seems weak, after that he becomes really strong somehow and when things go on for too long he becomes weak again due to the introduction of a new character. I thought Tokyo Ghoul was different…

[Ohys-Raws] Tokyo Ghoul A - 04 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_05.26_[2015.01.30_23.04.44]So we got to pick into Koutarou’s past, huh? I am okay with that. To see how he grew up as a religious nut that would normally do anything his priest tells him to. Of course, that all changed when he saw that very priest devour his friends like they were mere snacks. No wonder that people like him are so fanatic about kill every single ghoul.

There is one character that I don’t like; Juuzou. That guy is annoying. His voice, the way he acts and even the way he fights. I think his weapon looks rather dull and the fact that he’s so insane means that he probably won’t be dying any time soon. Characters like that always tend to stick around. Some people find characters like him interesting, I guess…

[Ohys-Raws] Tokyo Ghoul A - 04 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_16.57_[2015.01.30_23.05.00]Now then, Ken infiltrated that government facility with his new “friends” in order to find this almighty ghoul. I have gown accustomed to Ken’s new-found power and mind-set, so to see him get dominated like that by some middle-aged ghoul is kind of a tough pill to swallow. Ken was so strong and so damn awesome, but now he’s become just like the rest of the ghouls; average. There’s no doubt that during the next few episode we’ll see him train, gain experience and power. After that he’s probably going to fight that old ghoul again at some point. That’s how these things usually tend to go…

Parasyte episodes 15 & 16

Yeah, I kind of knew that it would turn out this way. It didn’t go exactly as I had imagined, which is why I’m still as excited as ever, but I was spot-on in general. It’s just a damn shame that the pace has dropped a little bit.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 15 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.41_[2015.01.29_23.37.48]So that private investigator finally saw what happened when one becomes affiliated with those parasites. His entire family was slaughtered like lambs and now they are after him to finish the job. He should’ve listened to Shinichi. That way he could’ve prevented this from happening by fleeing the city or something. But no… He knew best…

What surprised me a little is that that female parasite has become a target as well. Her obsession for Shinichi’s change and humanity in general has kind of set off the alarm amongst her kind, and so they are now targeting her because they think she’s become a threat. Now that is a pretty interesting twist that I did not see coming!

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 16 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.29_[2015.01.29_23.38.15]Of course, the spotlight goes to Shinichi and Migi once again. They are up against a freak of nature. Parasites in general are pretty freaky, but it gets worse when those two are up against five parasites that decided to take over the same body. Arms, legs and the head… All completely parasitic. All Shinichi could do was run and hide to give Migi some time to come up with a plan.

Still, Migi can have all the time in the world to plan all he wants, but even he is going to have a hard time when facing five parasites at once, especially when that old guy took over and united all of them. He morphed those legs so that he could actually catch Shinichi. Shinichi can’t even run away from that guy anymore, no matter how fast he’s become. It should be pretty interesting to see how they will deal with that monster.

Kamisama Kiss 2 episode 03

I had to wait two whole weeks to see this episode. Why was that necessary? Why did Kamisama Kiss have to take a one week break after only two weeks? I’ve seen Shirobako so I like to think that I know a little about how that system works. Did some idiot kid mess up in Japan? Or did some hyperactive girl finally have a car crash after racing from A to B?

[Ohys-Raws] Kami-sama Hajimemashita 2 - 03 (TX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_05.23_[2015.01.27_23.05.10]All jokes aside; this episode was pretty hectic and I would love to write a lot about it, I really do, but time is not my friend right now. I am forced to keep this short even though Nanami-chan got such an important mission. I want to say so much about that. Like how that gay god keeps involving himself with Nanami and how he constantly ends up helping her. He must really care for her since his friend gave her that godly status in season one.

I cannot understand why Nanami-chan would have to protect the gateway to the underworld. Anyone could’ve seen that coming. She ended up in hell with the human that’s trying hard to get yet another immortal body. I wonder how he will treat Nanami-chan once he becomes a big shot of the underworld again.

Maria the Virgin Witch episode 03

This episode was alright. A lot of controversial crap that nobody was really waiting for. This episode actually reminded me why I choose to be an atheist. I cannot be like those sad priests or other “men of god” and still be able to live proudly.

[Ohys-Raws] Junketsu no Maria - 03 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_09.02_[2015.01.26_22.58.50]So “god” decided to recall Archangel Michael before he got the chance to kill Maria or to take away her powers. All of this because there were still humans around that would bear arms against the Archangel in order to protect Maria, which says a lot more about the divine than about Maria’s desire to fight against war. I mean, the Archangel claimed to interfere with Maria because she was interfering with life on earth, which was supposedly wrong. Maria, although she’s a witch, is still part of the world and has every right to interfere. It can be said that Archangel Michael is just one big hypocrite.

[Ohys-Raws] Junketsu no Maria - 03 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_17.53_[2015.01.26_22.58.59]Nevertheless, Maria has been told about how she would lose all of her powers if she was caught meddling again or if she lost her virginity. It is sad that a lot of characters knew about that before Maria. The question is; would she give up all of her power just so she can lose her virginity? Sex is great and all, but I sure as hell wouldn’t bother if I had that kind of power. There are plenty of interestingly great toys out there.

I really am curious about how she will deal with this newfound information. She does not strike me as the type of character that would go on a rampage. Nor do I see her join the church any time soon. I am kind of hoping that she will try to find a way to get even stronger so she can fight off those that mean to harm her (like that angel).

Aldnoah.Zero 2 episode 03

There we go! This episode pleased a lot of fans, that’s for sure. I remember when the first season ended and a lot of nerds decided to take it upon themselves to troll anime forums about how terrible the ending was. That was funny…

[HorribleSubs] Aldnoah Zero - 15 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.17_[2015.01.25_23.24.21]It seems Slaine has planned this all along. He saved that count from getting killed because of a very specific reason. This might be just me reading into it, but I have a feeling I am right. There is simply no way that he could’ve saved his beloved princess on his own. People would’ve just killed him and the princess in order to continue taking over the earth. So, instead of fighting the unbeatable, he played it safe and stuck with them to win their trust and, during this week’s episode, to await an opportunity to seize power for himself. He saw the opportunity when he was declared that man’s adopted son and took it with both hands.

[HorribleSubs] Aldnoah Zero - 15 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.21_[2015.01.25_23.24.41]So yeah, Slaine is now royalty and has control over quite a bit of manpower. Something tells me that this isn’t enough for him and that he will continue this search of his for more power. He already has his beloved princess in one of his facilities and he will continue to protect her until she awakes, which may or may not happen (but probably will).

This little twist? Not entirely surprising. Slaine’s personality is pretty straightforward. I don’t think he would do anything to harm the princess, so it was only a matter of time before we figured out his little plan. I’m actually a little bit more curious to see how Inaho will deal with all of this. I think it’s about time he stopped using a training mech and started using a real mech that’s made specifically for combat.

Assassination Classroom episode 03

I hate the fact that I cannot disable the subtitles on Assassination Classroom episodes. I have to download a raw version and make screencaps of that one and if it isn’t out I have to try and find scenes without subtitles in them. That just sucks.

[HorribleSubs] Assassination Classroom - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.15_[2015.01.24_23.34.34]Anyway, this new delinquent joined the spotlight now that his suspension is over. I must say that he isn’t nearly as monstrous as I had thought. He’s just a brat that desires people’s attention and approval, and resorts to violence if people don’t give him any attention. Nevertheless, he did what no one else has managed to do so far; he got in the alien’s head and actually managed to land a blow on his first day. He basically used the alien’s rules against him in order to get what he wants. The fact he used those rules to the point where he actually risked his own life proves that he really desires attention.

[HorribleSubs] Assassination Classroom - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.03_[2015.01.24_23.35.40]Still, you are not going to beat that smiley face any time soon. You may take a tentacle of two, eat his stuff, say bad things about him and make him do stuff for you, but he will not break his own rules. He just finds another way to bring you down. It just makes you even more curious about what his true objective is.

We are going in circles. The students are trying hard to kill that alien and most of them have come to like him. The alien, claiming that he only wants to get killed by his students, seems damn near invincible and his reasons for doing all of this are becoming vaguer. The thought of him doing all of this just to prove a point did cross my mind, but something just tells me that that cannot be all there is to it. I really want to know…

Isuca

Wow, what a surprise. It took Isuca a few weeks, mainly due to it only having ten episodes, but it’s finally here. Ecchi anime is always welcome on my computer and this one is no exception. I watched it, I enjoyed it.

IsucaThe artwork honestly isn’t bad. The level of detail is not at all disappointing, the characters look pretty interesting, although the protagonist looks a bit plain, and the level of ecchiness isn’t all that bad. It’s not about fan service, which is a good thing.

Like I just said; it’s not at all about fan service. There is a good story behind this all. I only saw the first episode just now, but the story piqued my interest.

Ecchi and supernatural fans; eat your hearts out. I know I will be watching this and I know a lot of others will be watching this, too. I think this will prove to be an interesting piece with a lot of funny and interesting scenes.

Plot Summary: Asano begins work as the housekeeper for the old family of Shimazu, where he meets the ill-mannered, selfish, beautiful Sakaya. She is actually the 37th head of the Shimazu family in charge of sealing away monsters with Spirit Archery. Discovering that he has the powers of “true names” and “true eyes,”Asano becomes wrapped up in Sakaya’s battle with the monsters as her assistant.

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso episode 14

I hope that this will be the last Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso post that I will keep short. I am getting tired of seeing Kaori in a hospital. For god’s sake, just tell us what’s wrong with her already. Is she dying? I swear I will drop this show instantly.

[HorribleSubs] Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - 14 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.18_[2015.01.23_23.51.26]The girl gets a lot of medical attention and a lot of medication from what I could tell. Is she ill? Does she have cancer? Is one of her organs failing? Is she just diabetic? What the hell is wrong with that girl? She should grow up to become a fine young lady that will eventually end up marrying Kousei. That’s how this story is supposed to go, dammit!

The only good thing about this episode is that Kousei has successfully picked up the pieces. He has overcome a lot recently and has finally stepped back into the world of music. He even decided to move away to attend a music school, which ended up upsetting poor Tsubaki-chan. I hope that she, too, finds true happiness. She’s too adorable to be miserable.
