Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo episode 16

Has anyone else noticed that Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo keeps following the same pattern? The first few episodes are filled with drama and sadness, followed by one or two episodes of joy and motivation. After that it’s back to drama and sadness again.

[rori] Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo - 16 [0151A26F].mkv_snapshot_04.24_[2013.01.30_22.41.55]This episode was no different. We just faced a few dramatic episodes where some of the characters didn’t know what to do. Some problems may have been bigger than others, and some problems were just inside Misaki’s head, but I’m sure we can all agree that we’re stuck in some kind of loop that makes the story rather predictable at certain points.

I, to this day, still don’t know why Misaki was so upset after Jin had confessed to her. Her long awaited dream had finally come true, yet she felt the need to sulk. That whole whom-is-better-than-whom thing is getting really old. I’m just glad that Misaki got over it and went somewhat back to her old self again.

[rori] Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo - 16 [0151A26F].mkv_snapshot_19.13_[2013.01.30_22.42.36]Anyway, life goes on, even for the characters in this show. Sorata finally got another shot at a game presentation and kind of nailed it. He got accepted, but only if the other developers can make a few adjustments to his idea in order to reduce unnecessary costs. All in all a fair offer if you ask me. Let’s face it; Sorata has nothing else going for him.

Everyone is simply progressing. Nanami is working hard on her dream as a voice actress, Mashiro is still working hard on herself and her manga, Jin is working hard in order to support Misaki one day, Misaki is once again working hard on her anime and even Sorata’s little sister, the ever so cute Yuuko, is working hard on her upcoming high school entrance exams. Well done!

Zettai Karen Children: The Unlimited episode 04

Here we go again… I actually compared these episode with a coin. It has two sides. One makes me very happy and the other makes me very disappointed. I hope that the latter won’t outweigh the other. That would seriously kill the story for me.

[HorribleSubs] Zettai Karen Children THE UNLIMITED - Hyoubu Kyousuke - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.16_[2013.01.29_23.10.10]I was satisfied at first. Everyone was continuing their everyday lives as though the incident in the last episode didn’t even happen. Yuugiri went back to being a shy little girl, Andy went back to being a suspicious stranger and Kyousuke went back to that hard-to-read bad ass that does as he pretty much pleases.

That all seemed fine, until I got to see the first half of that coin. My hopes of Andy not being a government spy was shot down faster than a Frenchmen runs away from conflict. He couldn’t possibly have planned this from the very beginning though? Unless he and/or his superiors knew that Yuugiri was being held there against her will, and that Kyousuke would eventually come for her.

[HorribleSubs] Zettai Karen Children THE UNLIMITED - Hyoubu Kyousuke - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.35_[2013.01.29_23.11.55]I was frustrated and disappointed, but then I saw the other half, a better half. I saw “The Children”, a group of three high school girls with powerful abilities. Now, in the original show these girls were annoying little brats, which turned pretty much every situation into a horrible comedy. That is why I’m glad that they have grown up, and that things are a little bit more serious in this spinoff.

I’m not going into detail about it, but I’ll just say the exact same thing after I watched two or three episodes of Zettai Karen Children before I dropped it; I root for those that fight “The Children” and the organisation that controls them. People hate espers in that story, yet they don’t seem to mind to make soldiers out of powerful ones? Those guys need to be taught a lesson.

Bakuman 3 episode 17

I guess we’ve started on the final chapter in Bakuman. A chapter of great struggle, drama and happiness. This is the time for me to keep my fingers crossed and hope for a different ending than the one in the manga.

[sage]_Bakuman_S3_-_17_[720p][7C7F561A].mkv_snapshot_03.17_[2013.01.29_23.08.03]Eiji, Moritaka and Akito have all decided that it was time to finish this little race of theirs. Eiji may have a huge lead, but that doesn’t put Moritaka and Akito out of the game just yet. These three characters have all decided to work on something new. On something better. It was quite surprising when they came to the decision to create an unorthodox battle manga. It has been said that battle manga and mainstream manga aren’t really Moritaka and Akito’s style, but they have decided to prove everyone wrong. They have decided to make another manga, thereby doing two manga at the same time, just like Eiji.

[sage]_Bakuman_S3_-_17_[720p][7C7F561A].mkv_snapshot_21.31_[2013.01.29_23.08.53]Now, we must all accept that we cannot compare Moritaka and Akito with Eiji. Eiji’s a prodigy that has been drawing ever since he was a little kid, but Moritaka and Akito worked their way up with a lot of hard work and sheer willpower. That may seem unfair to some, but that’s just how things are. Remember; life isn’t always fair.

We all got a quick peak at their new manga’s. I must say that I prefer Moritaka and Akito’s a lot more than Eiji’s manga. Eiji’s manga seems very childish compared to Moritaka and Akito’s dark hero manga. I like the idea of a dark hero, which is why I also loved Zetman as much as I did. I’ll be looking forward to it!

OreShura episode 04

Dear readers, I know I may not always seem like a sane person. My opinion of things fluctuate quite often and I have mood swings like you wouldn’t believe. You could very well compare me to a pregnant woman that was a total b*tch even before she got penetrated. This particular post will not make the image you have of me any better, probably.

[HorribleSubs] OreShura - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.08_[2013.01.28_18.55.34]This episode annoyed the living hell out of me. We all sat and watched as Chiwa was getting humiliated by a bunch of punks. Really? You agree to go on a date with a girl, only to show up hours later with your friends to make fun of her while she just stands there? Where the hell is a drunk driver when you need one to crush those little sh*ts?

I was impressed when Eita rushed over to help Chiwa in her time of need. So what if he couldn’t even handle one of them and ended being beaten up instead? He came up for his friend. That’s what matters here. It was then that Chiwa decided to open up a can of “whoopass” (as the Americans say) in order to help out her pathetic childhood friend.

[HorribleSubs] OreShura - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.11_[2013.01.28_18.56.12]The aggravation didn’t end there. Masuzu actually changed her attitude and turned up the aggressive-meter. She actually stole a kiss and made it seem as though it didn’t bother her, even though it was probably her first as well. How stuck-up can you be? Just admit that you like already! There’s no point pretending when you actually want it to be real. You can’t fool me by saying that she’s going to keep it up for another nine episodes. Absolutely not. She’ll give in soon enough, seeing as she’s aware of her feelings for him (probably).

Space Brothers episode 42

Space Brothers is definitely in its prime right now. I didn’t care about waking up early to watch the new Space Brothers episode anymore, but now I do. The excitement is back, and so is my interest in this show. That’s what it’s all about it; keeping things interesting.

[HorribleSubs] Space Brothers - 42 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.18_[2013.01.27_23.12.16]We all know that Hibito was trying his best to get his colleague out of that place and out of danger. It’s easier said than done. Any other guy would’ve crumbled under the pressure and left without as much as saying goodbye. That’s where Hibito differs from your average person. That’s right, he’s an idiot that continues to suppress that animalistic desire to survive in order to save his friend.

Also, NASA receive quite the blow in this, too. They made the wrong choice by not listening to JAXA. I’m quite interesting in seeing how that will end. I don’t think it’ll stay with an apology or two, definitely not. I think a severe reprimand is more than in order. Perhaps a demotion? After all, we’re not just talking about two astronauts in need. We’re also talking about millions of dollars’ worth of equipment.

[HorribleSubs] Space Brothers - 42 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.59_[2013.01.27_23.12.54]It was a very dramatic and moving episode. Hibito did his best to save his friend. He came up with this ingenious plan to use his last flare to heat up a few rocks, after which he used those rocks to warm his colleague up a little bit. It gave him enough time to drag them back to the surface, where he made another attempt to warm up his freezing colleague. He succeeded marvellously, but he was ready to make the ultimate sacrifice in order to save his friend. He spent a lot of time on getting him out of there, only to find out that he’s minutes away from suffocating. Will he be saved on time? Will he die a hero’s death? Either way; the guy’s a legend in my book.
