Kamisama Kiss 2 episode 11

Another episode, another chance and yet another mistake on Nanami’s part. That girl will never learn to mind her own business. She refuses to accept the fact that there are things in that world that she shouldn’t meddle with.

He is trying hard to get his own body back and he even got the help of the same demon that sealed away the soul of that old Tengu, even though he was recently defeated by Nanami, a girl that doesn’t even know how to use her powers properly. Still, the guy went back to the netherworld in search of his body and actually found out where they kept it (or rather tried to destroy it). Now all he has to do is ask Tomoe for his help, seeing as he’s probably the only one that can do something about those flames.

Tomoe is busy trying to learn more and more about Nanami and her past. I certainly can’t blame him; I for one loved those scenes. I know that Nanami’s upbringing was irregular to say the least, but you can clearly tell that she had parents that cared about her, even if her father was a lowly gambler that gambled away all of their money and if her mother was dying from some illness that they haven’t yet told us about (I think). It is simply amazing that she turned out so well even though she had a father like that and had to spend most of her time growing up without her mother by her side. That’s very, very impressive.

Maria the Virgin Witch episode 11

I suppose this was a really good episode in general. A lot of good things happened and I am pretty sure that more good things are about to happen. That all being said, I cannot help but feel that one or two things did not go as I had hoped.

[Ohys-Raws] Junketsu no Maria - 11 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_08.25_[2015.03.23_23.46.55]First thing’s first; that insane mercenary was allowed to leave after all the thing that he had done. He raped Maria, gave her to the church and almost killed the boy that Maria loves. When is it enough? Why is he not being punished for his crimes? I understand that Maria hates violence and will always interfere when war breaks out. But did she really have to be like that when it involved the one guy that took everything from her? The one guy that almost got her killed. It was more than just foolish to let him go with that horrible woman, especially after she acted like a complete idiot.

[Ohys-Raws] Junketsu no Maria - 11 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_20.29_[2015.03.23_23.47.17]It goes without saying that this story would’ve gone completely different if it were up to me. It probably would’ve been a horrible story, but I would’ve had that guy die a hundred times over. I would’ve removed a limb during every episode. His other arm during this week, a leg next week, the other leg the week after that, and so on…

Still, a lot of good came from it. Maria has her power back, she has a boyfriend now and she’s standing face to face with Archangel Michael once more. I doubt they’re going to fight again, but something tells me that Maria is going to be victorious if they were to find one another. I don’t know why. All that’s left now is to see what kind of happy end we’ll get to see.

Aldnoah.Zero 2 episode 11

Bah. I just had the worst day. Almost everything went wrong from the moment I woke up. Even writing this post has gone wrong. Normally I’d have plenty of time to write up a post, but now I only have about twenty minutes to finish this up.

[HorribleSubs] Aldnoah Zero - 23 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.00_[2015.03.22_23.22.37]Anyway, keeping it all short; I knew it would go down this way. Slaine is your typical good guy turned bad guy character. He wants the one thing that he cannot have and it is killing him. He thought he could control the princess by keeping her imprisoned in his little base. Now he lost the one thing that mattered most and it is starting to show.

Slaine finally lost it. He ordered an all-out attack on earth at the time where the princess announced to her people that she was still alive and that she doesn’t want war. We now Slaine will just use her sister to control the damage, but he will ultimately lose this. People will eventually think there’s something wrong and figure out what Slaine’s been up to. Just a matter of time…

Assassination Classroom episode 10

You know, the problem with Assassination Classroom is that they are always trying to keep things lively and interesting by doing the exact same thing over and over again. Most anime do it like this, but in Assassination Classroom it happens too often.

[Ohys-Raws] Ansatsu Kyoushitsu - 10 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_07.11_[2015.03.22_00.16.44]I’m sure a lot of you have noticed already. Every time they try to keep things interesting and lively they do so by introducing a new character or two. It was the same with that teacher, with that red-haired kid, that computer and this time it’s going to be a couple of characters that seem to have some sort of a connection to Koro-sensei. Don’t get me wrong, I like all of the characters so far, but there’s a limit to how long this’ll last. You cannot keep introducing new characters just to keep things interesting. It gets out of hand quite easily.

[Ohys-Raws] Ansatsu Kyoushitsu - 10 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_16.39_[2015.03.22_00.16.54]But hey, ignoring that ridiculous competition amongst teacher’s nonsense, I found it quite nice to see how Koro-sensei cares about his students by taking them on trips, looking after them and making sure that they get all the attention and support they need. It is still hard to believe that he plans to destroy the earth.

Nevertheless, I have a feeling that the following episode are going to tell us a bit more about that creature. We already got a hint a few weeks back about the possibility of Koro-sensei’s humanity at one point in time. Maybe those two new characters might shed some light about what he is or where he comes from.

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso episode 22

I knew it. The ending was so predictable. In fact, half of the story was so predictable that it renders my overall opinion of Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso quite low. Never mind the fact that they killed off the best character on the show. It being so predictable is by far the worst thing about this story.

[HorribleSubs] Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - 22 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.45_[2015.03.20_23.45.08]So yeah, I supposed I hit the mark spot-on when I said that Kaori would probably die during that operation and during Kousei’s performance. Anyone could’ve seen that one coming. But it’s not just that. Its other parts of the story that were simply too predictable. Nevertheless, I think that Kaori’s condition throughout the show, probably a way to crank up the drama, was the biggest problem due to everything around it being so incredibly predictable that the rest of the story, as interesting as it was at times, became less and less amusing.

[HorribleSubs] Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - 22 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.41_[2015.03.20_23.45.31]Still, I must admit that I really liked that letter. That might’ve been the best thing that happened for the past few months to be very honest. It shows that Kaori loved Kousei all along, and that she only used that soccer freak to get close to him. I mean, it was quite obvious that she and Kousei were a much better match.

Soccer boy and Baseball girl are a good match. Not Kousei and soccer girl or soccer boy and Kaori. But that was obvious since episode one. It’s still just a damn shame that they had to kill Kaori, but at least it was a beautiful story in general. Not to mention the incredible artwork. Kudos.
