Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin episode 08

Okay, I’m not sure if adding a few new characters will make any difference, but I’m a big fan of that little girl. Her fear of men instantly reminded me of Inami from Working, which is another cute character that kept me quite entertained. I can only hope that “Yun”, one of the aforementioned new characters, will be half as entertaining.

[HorribleSubs] Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.17_[2014.05.30_23.07.44]I’m right away going to tackle that whole enemy issue. This Goth-like guy drops in and all hell breaks loose. The landlord is hauling ass because she claims that he owes her money (I honestly don’t agree, but I’ll get to that) and Nanana doesn’t seem to like him. He just barged in to acquire some information about a treasure that he’s found.

Now, I honestly think that the landlord and Nanana don’t have any right to complain. Let’s face it; the landlord scams people into living in that room without telling them it’s haunted. And Nanana couldn’t possibly complain because she’s an unwanted guest that doesn’t pay rent and just consumes every ounce of pudding that she comes across.

[HorribleSubs] Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.36_[2014.05.30_23.08.01]So yeah, nothing wrong with that guy in my book, but that’s just me. So what if he thinks that that bell was worthless? I honestly can’t disagree. I see some use for an item that can make it rain, but what’s wrong with calling it useless when it can’t grant any of your wishes? Is that so wrong? The guy is just hunting for something that’ll make him rich, famous and/or powerful. Maybe he has a different reason… Who knows? All I’m saying is that we know nothing about him, yet he’s already being portrayed as the bad guy here when I honestly think that he’s done nothing wrong. I probably would’ve abandoned Nanana, too. Nor would I have bothered to pay rent after I’ve been scammed like that.

Blade and Soul episode 09

This episode pissed me off so much that I can’t even think clearly. I won’t rewrite this post or edit it in anyway, just like my other posts, so I’m sorry if I offend anybody. Even more so now that the story is still following the exact same pattern.

[HorribleSubs] Blade and Soul - 09 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.59_[2014.05.30_23.06.45]Remember how I raged about Blade and Soul’s annoying pattern? This week’s exactly the same… Aruka becomes an employee of that blonde and makes a new friend that showed her the ropes and supported her. At the end she, too, was killed just for coming in contact with Aruka. When will this pattern end already!?

I cannot believe that Aruka accepted a proposal to become a waitress. That’s not like her. She’s hard-core and awesome. Watching her serve people food and drinks was just annoying. Watching her become emotional was even worse. What the hell happened to the ice cold character that I loved in episode one?

[HorribleSubs] Blade and Soul - 09 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.02_[2014.05.30_23.06.57]Of course, what pissed me off most is that Karen, that blonde b*tch, turned out to be an enemy after all. I knew it. I never liked that character and always thought that something was off. I just knew it. To see Aruka fall into her trap like that was so aggravating and disappointing that I almost decided to drop the show altogether.

The very worst part is that I can’t really blame Karen either. I mean, Aruka killed her beloved husband. I can somewhat understand her losing her mind over that. I can somewhat understand her wanting to torture Aruka as much as she can. Still, I don’t like Karen so I’m hoping that Aruka will get another power boost by turning back to her old ways in order to kill that two-faced b*tch. No mercy, no retreat!

No Game No Life episode 08

So they dedicated an entire episode on challenging the War Beast race instead of just starting it? I don’t really get that. Sora and Shiro have too many challenges left before they can rule the world, and it’s already been eight episodes…

[HorribleSubs] No Game No Life - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.09_[2014.05.29_23.16.53]It never stops amazing me how Sora, a strange character with a fear of people (if his little sister isn’t around), keeps playing his cards (so to speak). Things are always going his way, which makes you think that the story would be pretty darn predictable… It just isn’t. I know Sora and Shiro just challenged the War Beast race, but I have no idea what is going to happen. I don’t know what kind of game it’ll be. Sure, Sora and Shiro will probably end up winning, that much is obvious, but everything else is a complete mystery. Nobody can guess what they are about to do.

[HorribleSubs] No Game No Life - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.46_[2014.05.29_23.17.02]Even I am rooting or Sora and Shiro this time. I honestly didn’t care much for Jibril or that other girl that gave up her rights to an elf in return for some magical assistance. This time it’s different. I absolutely loved that little beast-girl. She was adorable. Almost as adorable as Shiro. I definitely want to see a bit more of that.

Like I said, I have no idea what is going to happen next week. I know that Shiro is going to play a big role now that she’s slowly forgetting her brother, the one thing that matters most to her. I’m sure Sora will just find a way to deal with that and restore her memories. There’s just no way in hell that Blank is going to lose this game!

Black Bullet episode 08

So far so good. I’m glad that Enju is still kicking and hauling ass. Black Bullet would be so incredibly lame without her. I just want to see a little bit more action and a stronger main character. What I’ve seen so far is just mediocre.

[HorribleSubs] Black Bullet - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.03_[2014.05.28_23.47.38]Now, we learned that their part of the city is going to be overrun by Gastrea in a couple of days’ time. This leaves them with little time to gather a group of people strong enough to fight against a large army of two thousand Gastrea. I’ll just ignore the fact that it all comes down to Rentarou again to find the people in time. I just want to know what the point of this is. Rentarou has finally gotten his well-deserved promotion and is well on his way to becoming a prominent civil officer. I think it’s only his obedient attitude that’s currently holding him back now.

[HorribleSubs] Black Bullet - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.10_[2014.05.28_23.48.04]Also, it kind of annoys me how weak Rentarou still is. He defeated a very powerful enemy that no civil officer could beat. It was the very same enemy that took out dozens of civil officers in a single day. And yet he’s still struggling against some civil offers whose rank is still in the thousands. I honestly expected more from him. Tina-chan was awesome though!

I’m not even worried about what’ll happen when that top-boss Gastrea breaks through and takes his friends with him. I’m rather curious about the characters that Rentarou will try to recruit. Will he have to fight every single one of them? I know that a lot of characters aren’t willing to risk their lives on such a suicide mission in order to get a little promotion. Just a few more days before a new episode arrives…

Yowamushi Pedal episode 33

I think that this is the first time that a Yowamushi Pedal episode left me speechless at the end. I expected several things from this episode, but definitely not this. I expected failure, a sudden boost and a predictable outcome. We got all of that, sure, but not in the way I had expected.

[HorribleSubs] Yowamushi Pedal - 33 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.09_[2014.05.27_22.47.30]So Sakamichi went back for Jin. I knew something like that was going to happen. Jin was done for on his own and there’s no way that Yuusuke, the team’s number one climber, would go back for one guy. It’s obvious that Sakamichi would go. Now we have Sakamichi and Jin in one team, Yuusuke and Shoukichi in another team and Shunsuke and Shingo at the front.

That everyone would pair up is not all that surprising, but that I would get to see a scene where Sakamichi, the team’s smallest guy, and Jin, the team’s biggest guy, would end up singing that messed up magic girl theme song…  That is messed up! To think that something so girly ended up giving them the predictable boost that they needed…
