Freezing Vibration episode 04

I have decided to keep this post very short. I like the Freezing series and I’m pretty satisfied with what I’ve seen. However, having been proven right has kind of damaged my motivation, and I don’t think many people would enjoy reading a big post about how right I was.

[Leopard-Raws] Freezing Vibration - 04 RAW (ATX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_07.21_[2013.10.31_01.43.10]Those scientists screwed up once again. They used one of the girls as a mere lab rat in order to find out if their latest experiment would prove successful. It really did not. That poor girl ended up going berserk, unable to control herself and unable to recognize friends and enemies properly. What a horrible way to go.

The worst part was when one of the doctors was confronted by one of the E-Pandora. She said that she and her girls wanted out, after which that woman showed her true colours and threatened her to play along. Basic stuff… It’s basically what happens when (secret) organizations are involved. These things are inevitable. I can only hope that next week’s episode will be a little more surprising.

Second Beast Saga season green-lit

Second Beast Saga season green-lit

The December issue of Shueisha’s Saikyo Jump magazine is announcing on Saturday that production on a second series of the Takara Tomy’s Beast Saga anime has been green-lit. The announcement reveals that the setting of the anime will change to the “sky,” and that the “development” will unfold at DVD rental stores next spring.

Saikyo Jump also serializes Manabu Honjō’s manga adaptation of the Beast Saga franchise. Takara Tomy’s official website for the franchise is streaming an English-narrated animated trailer for the franchise.

Beast Saga takes place on a distant planet in our galaxy called Beast where three beast tribes, the Sea Tribe, the Land Tribe, and the Sky Tribe, fight for their honor. Each of the tribes protect an infinite elemental power source called “Godlot.”

The first anime series aired in 2013 with Taiten Kusunoki (Last Order Final Fantasy VII’s Rude, The Unlimited – Hyōbu Kyōsuke’s Allen Walsh) leading the cast as Liogre. Aside from the manga and anime, the franchise also includes hobby toys and a dice battle game.

Yowamushi Pedal episode 04

It’s good to be alive! I have been looking forward to this all week. I must say that Yowamushi Pedal has yet to disappoint me. It’s been one big rollercoaster ride so far. I do wish they would ease up on all the praises though.

[HorribleSubs] Yowamushi Pedal - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_01.51_[2013.10.29_23.51.16]So Sakamichi-kun, arguably the biggest nerd in anime, finally found himself a little, red-haired friend, huh? Well, that’s nice for him. I don’t think he knows what he wants yet. He wanted to start an anime club, he wanted friends, he wanted to win against Shunsuke in that race and now he’s thinking about picking up racing. What a surprise…

There’s a reason why this show has no less than thirty-eight episodes. That’s right, thirty-eight episodes of bicycle madness. I’m still kind of hoping that it’s going to be like Over Drive, one of my favourite sports genre anime. I think this is lacking a bit of ‘adult’ content. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to see any of those guys naked. I would rather kill myself. I just want a bit of aggression to be added to the mixture. That would be nice.

[HorribleSubs] Yowamushi Pedal - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.10_[2013.10.29_23.52.00]Anyway, Sakamichi and Shoukichi, that red-headed midget, found themselves occupied for a bit. They wanted to catch up with a car in order to return a cigarette bud that was flicked against Sakamichi’s bicycle. Putting their strange priorities aside, it was nice to see Sakamichi ride now that he has a second gear. I wouldn’t mind seeing him on a racing bike soon.

That all being said; I’m getting real tired of all that praising. This episode alone contained like half a dozen praises by just one character. We get it, Sakamichi is interesting, his legs are amazing and for him to be riding a mommy bike like that is amazing. We get it! We don’t need to hear it every few minutes. Just focus on the important parts!

Magi 2 episode 04

I can’t say that it was a bad episode in general, but I’m really not happy with what I saw here. I hate how these types of stories go back in forth when it comes to a character’s abilities. It just pisses me off a bit and makes me feel as though we’re back to square one.

[HorribleSubs] Magi S2 - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_02.46_[2013.10.28_21.40.52]Of course, I’m talking about the way Aladdin was captured and taken away by that cocky midget. I took him away as though it was nothing and Aladdin didn’t even seem to struggle. He didn’t use magic, he didn’t hit or even yell to get away. It was the same thing with Morgiana and Alibaba. Neither used any of their abilities in order to help their friend. Hakuryuu was the only one that tried his best to save Aladdin whilst keeping the others at bay. I simply hate the fact that they always make characters look weaker than they are. Suddenly they weren’t able to fight… Ridiculous.

[HorribleSubs] Magi S2 - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.17_[2013.10.28_21.41.30]Now a new character shows her face, a women by the name of Aum Madaura. She’s a magic user that also uses little children to her bidding. She’s clearly insane and probably very strong. She’s probably ready to sacrifice any amount of children to get what she wants, but that’s still in the future I suppose.

I’m expecting a make-up battle next week. This week was pathetic and very disappointing. Everyone was weak and feeble, so I can only hope that suddenly everyone remembers to use all the weapons and knowledge that they obtained during their time together. It’s going to suck pretty badly if they don’t.

Hajime no Ippo: Rising episode 04

I really love this pace! Normally we’d spend two or three episodes (at least) on a single match, especially during important matches. Ippo’s title match was over in no-time and Masaru’s match is already well on its way. That’s insane. I love it!

[HorribleSubs] Hajime no Ippo - Rising - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_00.12_[2013.10.27_21.33.18]One finds the ambition, pours his love, blood, sweat and tears into becoming that which he has always wanted, a boxer, and finally reaches the point where he can call himself a champion boxer. That’s right, Masaru’s opponent sacrificed a tremendous amount in order to become the man he is today. And for what? To see one of his opponents strip of completely in the hope of making weight? Masaru really dealt a mental blow before their match had even started, not to mention that remark he made about him having someone to fight for (his girlfriend). I guess doing mental damage is Masaru’s forte.

[HorribleSubs] Hajime no Ippo - Rising - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.44_[2013.10.27_21.34.28]I also took notice of what happened the night before Masaru’s fight. He had sex with his girlfriend on the night before his girlfriend. Now, I don’t really care about that part. I care about the part where it supposedly drains a boxer’s stamina. I find that very interesting. I’m aware that boxers have to rest the night before a match, but to think that having sex would have such a huge impact…

We know Masaru won’t win. He just won’t. He’s not in tip-top shape, doesn’t have many effective weapons that he can use against his opponent, and, if that isn’t enough, I think his fear of what might happen may worsen his performance even more. That guy is doomed no matter how you look at it. Too bad, Masaru-kun. Better luck next time!
