Akame ga Kill! episode 04

Damn you! I don’t want to watch some story about a random killer. I just want to see that advisor’s head on a silver plate. I can’t trust Tatsumi do finish the job. He will only screw it up or get in the wave of someone else.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.03_[2014.07.30_23.46.22]That being said, I can finally see the big picture here. They finally explained the supernatural element here. It seems there are forty-eight special weapons that allow people to become powerful enough to stop small armies single handedly. It explains why the Night Raid members seem so overpowered. They all own one of those weapons. I can only imagine that it’s only a matter of time before the currently weak Tatsumi gets his crummy little paws on one of those weapons in order to get a power boost. At least it sounds better than him suddenly getting stronger out of nowhere.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.50_[2014.07.30_23.46.55]I honestly don’t get why Night Raid continues to put Tatsumi in the field. They all know how weak he is, especially compared to people with one of those special weapons. It is only a matter of time before he gets himself killed. Just put him in the laundry room for the rest of the day, but don’t let him fight. He’s useless as he is right now.

I’m sure this episode proved that to most of you. He barely managed to scratch that lunatic’s face. That guy was just playing with him. Tatsumi would’ve died if Akame hadn’t shown up to kill that freak. It just goes to show that those two live in different worlds. It’ll take a lot of hard work, practice and one hell of a weapon before he can catch up to Akame.

Barakamon episode 04

Another chaotic and ridiculous Barakamon episode, awesome! It is, you know? It really is ridiculous. It’s no wonder that country bumpkins usually live to be a hundred. They stay in shape, live very simple lives and seem to be having far more fun that people in modern cities. Why is that anyway?

[HorribleSubs] Barakamon - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.26_[2014.07.29_23.44.56]This episode shows that clearly. Seishuu found himself unable to function properly without his computer or mobile phone. He couldn’t work or relax without either one of them. This in itself is a problem, but it becomes so much worse when I recognize myself in it. I am always looking at some kind of screen. It’s my work, it’s my hobby… How could I not?

Ignoring the fact that I’m seriously considering to take a trip to some random bumpkin village, I think Seishuu is lucky. He has a lot of people there that will take his mind of things and support him in any way they can. He screws up, finds it hard to adept to local life and has trouble answering the simplest of questions because he feels pressured. His old man sent him to the perfect place.

[HorribleSubs] Barakamon - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.29_[2014.07.29_23.45.13]This week he got to write on a boat. It turned out expectedly horrible, but the owner, the father one of the three female demons, seemed to like it in the end because everyone was involved somehow. It was something that other boat owners didn’t have. It kind of bothers me that he seemed genuinely happy with it. A part of me thinks he was just pretending to be happy to give Seishuu a break and because his daughter was standing next to him. That’s why I wouldn’t be surprised to find a repainted boat during the next few episodes.

Sword Art Online 2 episode 04

Oh, look… Kazuto finally decided to show up after three episodes. It’s not that I don’t like Shino or anything, but isn’t Kazuto and his super geek-skills the star of the show? All that’s left is for us to see Asuna’s expression when she finds out that her boyfriend has been doing dangerous in-game stuff again behind her back.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.51_[2014.07.28_22.53.15]So Kazuto converted his old account from another game into a special (really?) account in Gun Gale Online. I strongly refuse to believe that Kazuto did that, and the he obtained that account through the government that hired him to track this Death Gun character down. It also wasn’t much of a surprise that Kazuto encountered Shino almost immediately. He’ll probably stick with her for some time until he encounters Death Gun, whom has set his sights on Shino next. All Kazuto has to do now is wait for the guy to show up whilst getting stronger in the meantime.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.33_[2014.07.28_22.53.46]Now, I don’t like the fact that Kazuto’s in-game character has such a girly body. I’m sure that’s the primary reason as to why some random guy was willing to pay a lot of money for it, but I somehow think it’s wrong. It’ll take some getting used to. His characters were never really ‘manly’ or anything like that, but they weren’t this feminine either.

What am I expecting at this point? I’m expecting an overpowered character that will soon draw away Death Gun’s attention from Shino. Kazuto has played games for so many years, especially if you include the time he spent trapped inside Sword Art Online, so he has a serious edge on a lot of players. It’s only a matter of time at this point.

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei episode 17

Another marvelous episode. I think it’s a disgrace how the ratings have dropped. It had an eight average when the show first started and still rising as time went on, but these past few weeks have been a disaster for the ratings. Why? I don’t understand. I really don’t.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 17 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.45_[2014.07.27_23.06.07]So the organization behind all the sabotages decided to turn up the heat in order to sabotage First High from winning any more matches. Their methods and priorities have been completely altered by the fact that Tatsuya defeated Third High. They no longer care about student safety. They just want to ensure that they come out on top at any cost. I noticed one of them saying that their lives depended on it, which means that they are not the masterminds. There is someone out there so powerful and influential that those sick pr*cks no longer mind killing students because they themselves are scared.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 17 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.48_[2014.07.27_23.06.21]Anyway, Tatsuya didn’t seem bothered. He stayed one step ahead of those fools by giving Miyuki the ability to use Flying Magic, which is one of Tatsuya’s newest sequences that has only been released last month. Never mind that Azusa already discovered that Tatsuya is Taurus Silver, seeing as it’s only a matter of time before the rest of the students discover it.

Also, wasn’t it brilliant how Tatsuya prevented that guy from tampering with Miyuki’s CAD? He was mad as hell and took him down within seconds. Fools. You cannot fool Tatsuya. His greatness overwhelms all else. It’s only a matter of time before Tatsuya strikes back. The only difference is that Tatsuya, unlike those morons, never fails to accomplish his missions.

The story takes place during a conflict between the Krakozhia Dukedom and the Grania Republic. In the midst of the fighting, a savior appears to the Krakozhia Dukedom, and it is a high school student named Sōhei Yano. Two female soldiers, First Lieutenant Ruto and Second Lieutenant Haruka, appear in tanks to intrude on Sōhei’s everyday life, followed by the enemy soldier Shachirofu, all of whom use firearms without hesitation at his house.

The series ran in Manga 4-Koma Palette magazine and Ichijinsha published the fifth and final compiled volume last year. Williams is currently serializing Miritari! Otsugata in the same magazine.
