I am short on time, which is okay this time. I have very little to say about this episode. I’m kind of losing interest in those handymen, especially now that I’ve seen this episode. What a shocker this turned out to be.
Nicolas might just cease to be my favourite. I thought he was this badass killer that everyone feared because he’s so strong, but now it turns out that he’s just a druggy. He apparently gets most of his power due to overdosing on those pills. That’s a big blow. Those two seem less and less important nowadays.
Nicolas and Worick went down in popularity and the guild went up in popularity. That busty S-rank came in and hauled so much ass. Nicolas couldn’t even do the job and she came in and made it seem so damn easy. It makes me want to know more about her and their organisation. I’m guessing that they’re more than what they seem.Read More
Boy, this episode was just one big rollercoaster ride. So many interesting and amusing scenes that I’m thinking about watching this episode again tomorrow. Gate is turning out to be quite the memorable show if you ask me.
We learned a lot more about Youji this week. Apparently he’s quite a skilled soldier if I am to believe the rumours. Why doubt it? I saw what the Japanese did to the Americans this week. It was hilarious to see American soldiers get slaughtered by Japanese soldiers, even though they had the advantage of outnumbering the Japanese. America, like many other countries, want access to that gate even though it’s on Japanese ground. They, apparently, don’t mind using force. The whole world seems to be scared of Japan getting a hold of all those resources.
It was also quite noticeable how the princess and her companion have changed since they came to Japan. They realized that Japan is way ahead and way more powerful. But instead of getting scared they actually seemed to be enjoying themselves, especially when they visited a hot spring. Japan might actual win that princess over to their side.
My attention is focussed on Rory though. Yeah, the episode ended with her forcing herself on Youji, but we all know that nothing will happen. Youji will do the ‘right’ thing and resist her charms. What I am focussing on is the idea of Rory attacking those cocky American soldiers. I can’t wait to see what happens if they actually stand face to face with Rory and the others.Read More
Okay, now this I don’t mind. Ore Monogatari just got a little bit more interesting. It’s just a damn shame that it took so long. There are only three episodes left and although I am happy by what I’m seeing so far, I still want to see that one episode…
But yeah, I’m happy. Makoto has been helping Takeo all this time. He gave him advice, stuck around when he needed to and more. It is very rewarding to see him finally get interested in a girl himself. Well, kind of. I mean, that girl, a grey-haired girl with glasses, has been stalking him for years, which is kind of creepy, and she finally, thanks to Takeo, managed to muster the courage to confess to Makoto and ask him out on a date. So what if Takeo and his girlfriend are going? It’s still a double date. Makoto is finally making a little progress, even if he can get better.
There. I said it. I think Makoto can get better. Am I happy that he’s about to go on a date with a grey-haired girl with glasses that has been stalking him all this time? Not really. I’m just happy that he’s finally moving forward and that he’s giving dating a fair chance. He has rejected every one so far. Hopefully this will motivate him.
The next episode can be dedicated to their date. I am fine with that. But I still want to see that one episode where Takeo meets Rinko’s parents. I think it’s highly unfitting that the show should end without Takeo having met Rinko’s parents. I mean, Rinko’s practically part of the Gouda family already in the eyes of Takeo’s parents. Now it’s Rinko’s turn.Read More
I am running out of time but I still want to schedule this post for tomorrow. I hate days where I don’t even have time to watch all the episodes that come out. Someone screws up at work and I, the usual hero, have to fix it all.
I do have to admit that I liked this episode. I saw a chance for Umaru’s brother to have a girlfriend of his own. His childhood friend obviously has a thing for him and she has no trouble showing it. Why not just give her a chance? It would be way better to be a two income family when you have to take care of an otaku sister.
The rest wasn’t all that special. It turned out to be a Christmas episode where they were all enjoying the holidays. I have no problems watching characters enjoy traditional Japanese culture. There are times where I actually learn a thing or two. I wouldn’t mind seeing another one of these episodes next week, provided that blue-haired girl gets as much air-time as this week (or not at all).Read More
This episode was incredibly epic! I am so glad that I chose to believe in Overlord. It hasn’t disappointed me yet. Waiting for the next episode will be a real challenge. It’s not like I can go read the manga; the anime is way ahead of the translated edition of the Overlord manga.
So Momonga’s allies were slaughtered like pigs by that insane woman. I liked that little twist about that little boy actually turning out to be a girl. It’s so simple and unexpected; I like it. But I think I can make one thing clear here; they weren’t friends. Momonga feels no sadness about their deaths. It surprised me a little to hear him say that he’s mad because his work went wasted. He wanted to use them as tools to spread his name throughout the city. I don’t know if I should find that awesome or unnecessarily evil, but I like where this is going.
I also kind of hope that Nabe will deal with that annoying geezer fast and show up with his head just as Momonga is about to fight that woman. I would really like to see the look on her face as she realizes that she’s not up against your average adventurers. They did a great job at making the viewers hate her guts. I just want to see her sweat just before she gets defeated. The thought of her realizing that she has no chance of victory after all that she has said and done is simply orgasmic. I really, really hope that I won’t be let down next week.Read More
