Naruto Shippuuden episode 374

Now this is an episode worth watching! It’s too bad that I have to cut the post short. I have been getting dizzy spells all day and all I want to do right now is finish this post and go to bed. I suppose we all have our bad days.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 374 [720p].mkv_snapshot_02.57_[2014.08.30_23.03.33]So team seven, Naruto, Sasuke and Sakura, have all used their Summoning Jutsu in order to call forth their friends. I still think that Naruto’s toads beat Sasuke’s snakes and pretty much everything else beats Sakura’s slugs. I’m not at all a fan of slugs. It was kind of fun to see how Gamakichi has grown. I still remember the small, cocky Gamakichi and his fat, yellow brother. He’s grown into quite the badass now.

I’m looking forward to seeing more of their “Three-way deadlock”, but I also want to see all the Kage’s back in action after Tsunade is done healing them. I bet that Tsunade wouldn’t mind seeing her grandfather again. Besides, they can use all the help that they can get with Madara still on the loose (not to mention the Ten Tails and Tobi).

Tokyo Ghoul episode 09

I knew it. I knew this was going to be an episode about those Doves. One of them died again last week, so I knew that this episode was going to revolve around him. I can only hope that this was the last one, seeing as he’s not exactly all that interesting.

[Ohys-Raws] Tokyo Ghoul - 09 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_04.00_[2014.08.29_23.25.43]We all knew that Koutarou, that junior dove, had been trained by Kureo. I must admit that that scene about that old lady Ghoul was pretty cool. But yeah, I am just not interesting Kureo. The guy was a creepy, power-hungry monster that simply took too many lives. I don’t care about his story or his reasons. Not even if his entire family was massacred by Ghouls or something like that. He killed old Ghouls, young Ghouls and probably even Ghouls that chose not to fight (like Hinami’s father).  He simply got what he deserved.

[Ohys-Raws] Tokyo Ghoul - 09 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_22.12_[2014.08.29_23.26.14]My problem with Tokyo Ghoul right now is that Ken is still weak. He knows how to use some of his Ghoul powers now, but he’s afraid to lose control. He still knows very little and his progress is slow at best. He finally has his mask and fought against an enemy, but yeah… Not much progress… Even though a lot of Ghouls from other districts are coming to visit him. He’ll probably have to fight for his life after all those Ghouls find out about him. It just makes me even more curious about Rize. All those Ghouls have come to that city just for her. I really want to know why…

Majimoji Rurumo episode 08

What a strange episode. I already has a vague idea of what was going to happen when I watched the preview last week, but this pretty much exceeded my expectations. Even more reason to start thinking about a second season, Japan.

[Anime-Koi] Majimoji Rurumo - 08 [h264-720p][CE292C37].mkv_snapshot_03.50_[2014.08.29_23.24.48]So little girls now come falling from the skies, giving perverts like Kouta an eyeful of glistening purple panties. Not that I, the viewer, had time to admire her panties though. I was more focussed on her enormous head. I think it was her outfit, because she landed and I saw one hell of a head on a pair of tiny shoulders. That was insane. Her freaky cat didn’t make things any better either. That thing looks like its planning to commit mass murder. No wonder that Chiro doesn’t like those two. I’m just glad that that cat didn’t say anything in the end.

[Anime-Koi] Majimoji Rurumo - 08 [h264-720p][CE292C37].mkv_snapshot_15.13_[2014.08.29_23.25.10]So this little girl comes floating down and offers Kouta a free ticket to some magic. Not very surprising that he wished for something that would allow him to fulfil his perverted needs. It’s just that her need to seek Rurumo’s affection is just too weird. All the characters have gotten used to Rurumo’s pokerfaced reactions. No need to follow her around…

She left in the end, but I am certain that she will return again. I am sure of it. In fact, I think that she’s going to be the one to tell Rurumo about what happens when she completes her witch training, after which Rurumo will probably quit. I don’t think Rurumo would do anything that would harm Kouta, not now that she has fallen for him.

Ao Haru Ride episode 08

This whole story is just going back in forth. It’s almost like watching a random child that’s plucking leaf petals from a flower. “She loves me, she loves me not, she loves me, she loves me not…” It’s quite annoying if it goes on for too long.

[HorribleSubs] Ao Haru Ride - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.03_[2014.08.28_22.50.36]So Futaba finally managed to find the courage to tell Yuuri about her feelings for Kou. I think it’s quite admirable how Yuuri dealt with the news. Sure, she was bit surprised and rather sad, but she took it very well. Besides, she doesn’t strike me as the type of character that will do anything to get what she wants. I think she’s as straight as an arrow. That is why I’d rather see her win that Futaba, but that’s obviously not going to happen. Futaba is just way too fussy and has quite a few problems, and I don’t think that their past should give her the edge, even though it obviously does.

[HorribleSubs] Ao Haru Ride - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.37_[2014.08.28_22.50.58]Quite frankly, the only one that I’m actually rooting for is Shuuko-chan. So what if she has a crush on her teacher? They aren’t extremely far apart when it comes to age, so why not? Just wait until Shuuko-chan graduates and date her. Date her now if you think you can keep it quiet… I only say that because I think that Kou’s older brother is a good guy, of course.

Was there any actual progress? I don’t know. Futaba told Yuuri about her feelings for Kou and says that she’s seriously going after him now. I never thought she would literally follow the guy around town like he has honey stuck to his ass. I just hope that Kou will notice her feelings soon. It’s time that he, too, grows up a little instead of acting like a sad, attention craving child.

Seraph of the End anime green-lit

Seraph of the End anime green-lit

The editorial department of Shueisha’s Jump Square magazine announced on Thursday that a TV anime adaptation of novelist Takaya Kagami (The Legend of the Legendary Heroes, A Dark Rabbit Has Seven Lives), manga creator Daisuke Furuya, and manga artist Yamato Yamamoto (Kure-nai)’s Seraph of the End (Owari no Seraph) manga has been green-lit. The staff noted that the animation studio, the cast, and other details will be announced at a later time.

The story takes place in a world where an unknown virus has killed the entire human population except for children. Those children were then enslaved by vampires. The manga centers on Yuichiro Hyakuya, a human who dreams of becoming strong enough to kill all vampires.

Yamamoto and Kagami launched the dark fantasy series in Shueisha’s Jump Square magazine in fall 2012. Shueisha is publishing the sixth volume on September 4, and new volumes have regularly ranked on Oricon’s top 50 chart. Viz has licensed the manga in English for its digital Weekly Shonen Jump website.

Takaya Kagami’s light novels series Densetsu no Yūsha no Densetsu (The Legend of the Legendary Heroes) and Itsuka Tenma no Kuro-Usagi (A Dark Rabbit Has Seven Lives) both spawned anime adaptations in 2010 and 2011, respectively. Funimation licensed and released The Legend of the Legendary Heroes in North America, while Crunchyroll streamed A Dark Rabbit Has Seven Lives as
