Grisaia no Kajitsu episode 13

Okay, so they decided to focus on that girl after all. I suppose she got the lion share of attention amongst the girls, which is fine by me, seeing as she’s the interesting one amongst the girls. Do I still regret picking this show? Yes.

[HorribleSubs] Grisaia no Kajitsu - 13 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.59_[2014.12.30_23.48.42]Ending was pointless. She asked the protagonist’s help in order to get over her past, even though everyone could see that guy, that old teacher if I am not mistaken, coming from a mile away. Not one viewer that could’ve been surprised at that one. Subtlety is definitely no one of Grisaia no Kajitsu strong points.

But yeah, anyone could see this ending coming. The guy comes in, takes hostages, of which he takes a group of messed up and dangerous girls, and thinks everything is going to be alright. It doesn’t work that way. And the fact that this ending was so disappointing and predictable, I can only say that the producers are smart enough not to make a second season of this.

Amagi Brilliant Park episode 13

I honestly don’t think that this episode was worthy of a post. I do not acknowledge this as the final episode. I see it as an OVA or something like that. I also think the Romance genre needs to be removed from Amagi Brilliant Park. This show may have been many things, but romantic isn’t one of them.

[Vivid] Amagi Brilliant Park - 13 [2D38E7E1].mkv_snapshot_09.14_[2014.12.28_23.41.17]They spent an entire episode on the show’s promotional video. I had to watch ridiculous comedy even though there were so many other things that we could’ve focussed on. Why not focus on romance a little by making the protagonist go out with that gun-crazy girl? Why not just explain to us who that strange guy was that wanted to see the park gone? Why not show us a scene of the future or something like that? Anything would’ve been better than this ridiculous and pointless episode. I feel like I wasted my time watching this as it contributed absolutely nothing to the story. I won’t even bother writing about it anymore. Bye.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 393

This is what happens when you make a nearly-unbeatable opponent even stronger. You up the drama, sure, but you make things extremely predictable as well. We all know that Naruto won’t die from this. It’ll just have to opposite effect.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 393 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.16_[2014.12.27_23.02.37]Madara really did a number on Naruto. His body was damaged to a point where his life is now in danger. This will undoubtedly result in a lot of drama where everyone will shed tears and do their best to make sure he doesn’t die, after which he will become better and rise stronger than ever. That is how these things always go down.

The high level of predictability has always been a problem, yet Naruto’s popularity continues to grow. People know something’s coming, but they just want to know what it is and how. I am pretty much the same. I needed to know how things would go down even though one could see it coming from a mile away. The only thing I want to know right now is after how many more episodes they plan to end this show.

Trinity Seven episode 12

A very disturbing final episode. Yes, I enjoyed Trinity Seven for the last few months, but I will not be waiting for a second season. I think its fine like this. It was very nice and very funny, but the story was lacking a little bit.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.21_[2014.12.27_00.01.37]This was supposed to be the final battle. A battle where the protagonist was supposed to go all-out in order to save his previous friend and where everything would get nearly destroyed. I thought it was going to be this epic, all-out fighting where everyone had to use their ultimate skill in order to win the battle. I don’t even know what happened. The protagonist just powered up a little, executed his thema and attacked only once from what I could tell. It was enough to beat Hijiri and make her disappear again so that he can once again start his journey.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.26_[2014.12.27_00.01.49]It was a weird ending. You could really tell that they were trying to end things with a cliff-hanger, thereby giving us the impression that they were planning (or perhaps already working on) a second season. I won’t actually be waiting for it. I think Trinity Seven ended for me and that’s that. None of my wishes really came true and I feel as though the story was really lacking in quite a lot of places. I would only recommend this to those that just want to laugh and watch a little bit of ecchi anime. This just isn’t for storyline-fanatics.

Parasyte episode 12

Parasyte comes first, of course. I did some rescheduling in order to make sure that Parasyte gets posted today instead of tomorrow or the day after tomorrow. I had to wait two weeks for this episode so it’s definitely coming first.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_06.19_[2014.12.25_23.45.11]It is quite amusing to see how Migi and Shinichi interact with other nowadays. Shinichi has become a completely different person and is starting to think more logically about everything, which allows him to communicate with Migi on a level where the two actually see eye to eye from time to time, which is something that never happened before. It is really, really amusing to watch. One can actually see Shinichi become more and more like a parasite. He keeps his loved ones on a leash so that they don’t get caught in the crossfire and he is no longer worried about engaging his enemies. Well, maybe a little.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_11.50_[2014.12.25_23.45.18]You could actually see Shinichi do his best to ensure that that stalker of his stays away from him. She simply refused to listen and had to pay the ultimate price when she thought that she sensed Shinichi. What she actually sensed was a hostile parasite that ended up killing her, leaving Shinichi with a sense of guilt. That guy did his best. Not his problem.

Still, you can see that Shinichi is still fighting his demons. He is calm and his emotions are under lock and key. He is aware of that and sees everyone around him as a possible weakness. I do not understand why he feels to need to protect every single human being from these parasites. That just gives him a huge weakness that the parasites are bound to exploit sooner or later, especially since they are building their own community.
