God Eater episode 09

This is really messed up. I mean, we had like three nonsense episodes with nothing but recaps and whatnot. That was pretty bad enough, but now it seems we’re going to have to wait a few months before we get to see the final few episodes because they messed up the production.

[HorribleSubs] GOD EATER - 09 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.06_[2015.09.29_23.47.34]I’ll admit; anime that has been adapted from games tend to be big gambles. Most of them turn out bad and not very profitable, but I can’t remember the last time when a company screwed up this badly. A lot of bad news items have been circulating lately and I think it’s time we face facts; they screwed up a lot. Apparently it’s gotten to the point where they disappoint all the fans by making them wait a few months so that they can come back from their many screw-ups. They finally did it right for a change and then they still find a way to mess it up… Incredible.

[HorribleSubs] GOD EATER - 09 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.33_[2015.09.29_23.48.11]I’m going to have to say that I’m kind of disappointed by the thought that Lenka is really dying. I don’t know if he’s going to die a hero’s death or if they somehow find a way to save his life. Either way; things are going to get hectic. I just have to give him two thumbs up for wanting to carry on instead of just wasting away slower than usual.

They really did a good job on this though. I mean, the story’s good. I never even saw that twist coming. I never knew they were going to use that Russian chick to try and kill her captain. At least we know who’s really pulling the strings. It just goes to show you that companies and organizations just cannot be trusted. They’re probably building a weapon instead of a shield. We’ll find out eventually.

Working!!! episode 13

This was incredibly weird. Why do these Japanese have so much trouble with pushing out decent endings? They have been spending half of this season tying up loose ends and then they end it like this… What the hell!?

[HorribleSubs] Working!!! - 13 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.52_[2015.09.28_23.28.29]I thought that Mahiru was finally going to catch a break. It was her turn to get a little bit of happiness and the same goes for Souta, even though his mother was still around with her nose in his business. I thought for sure this was going to be it when I saw Mahiru’s father show up like that. I got even surer of it when I saw Souta’s mother spying on him.

In the end both of them are still friends and both of them still don’t really know about each other’s feelings yet. I mean, I’m sure they actually know, but nothing’s set in stone yet. They haven’t actually started dating or anything. How is that a good way to end this season? I know there’s an OVA or something coming up, but I have been told that this was the final season…

Gangsta. episode 12

This was a very weird ending. It would’ve been okay if the second season was already announced before this episode aired, but there’s no news about the possibility of a second season, yet it ended with nothing but a cliffhanger.

[Ohys-Raws] Gangsta. - 12 END (ABC 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_17.13_[2015.09.27_23.56.29]Yeah, I said it, this episode, however good it was, pissed me off a little. I enjoyed watching it a lot and a couple of questions have been answered, but the way it ended was just ridiculously annoying. It ended with a huge cliffhanger that simply makes you want to know what the hell will happen next, yet there’s no guarantee that this will continue.

Watching Worick get stabbed and thrown out of a window was one thing, but we have no idea what’ll happen to Monroe or any of the Twilights. We don’t even know how this war will go down, yet it ended anyway with nothing finished. A lot of fans will be disappointed if it really does end like this. I’ll be keeping my eyes open for news of a second season.

Ore Monogatari!! episode 24

… Well, this was a rather disappointing ending. It had a great start and a whole lot of wonderful episodes, but compared to those this ending just seems weak. There were some touching moments alright, but not enough to call it an amazing ending.

[HorribleSubs] Ore Monogatari!! - 24 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.51_[2015.09.25_23.16.57]They continued this jealousy nonsense right up until the end. That guy ended up winning that contest and he confessed to Rinko. Yeah, she chose Takeo as we all already expected, but after that it kind of stagnated. It was touching, but it took too long. The episode practically over by that point and we didn’t have much time for anything else.

We still know very little about Rinko and her situation. We actually know very little about a lot of things. We only know about Takeo is his best friend. That would’ve been fine if the show itself didn’t end like this. That’s why I find the ending rather disappointing. Either I just set the bar too damn high or the final episode really was weak.

Himouto! Umaru-chan episode 12

And yet another show ends. Time really goes by fast. The summer here is as good as over since it’s already getting cold. What a lousy summer this turned out to be. At least I had some really good shows to keep me occupied.

[HorribleSubs] Himouto! Umaru-chan - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.46_[2015.09.24_23.47.13]I’ll just come out and say it; I’m a little disappointed in Himouto! Umaru. I expected so much more from this show. It was fun to watch and all, but I really lost my motivation to keep writing and I am certain that it showed. There just wasn’t a good enough story. It was a bit of a mess and it lacked in content. I just watched the final episode and I asked myself only one question; what the hell was the point?

Three months of this and we’re pretty much where we started. There were no major events, we still don’t know anything about their situation or their background and I don’t even know what the point of it all was. It looked like one random slice of life episode after the other. You could watch the episodes in any order and you’d be none the wiser. That’s a little disappointing…
