Normally I’d be writing this week’s Noragami post for today, but this week’s Heavy Object was so incredibly amusing that I’m more motivated to write about Heavy Object than I am about Noragami. Truly this season’s most underrated show.
So we were somehow led to believe that Milinda, the so-called princess, had to ‘man’ up and take care of that damaged object. Qwenthur and Havia supposedly did their part by trying to blow that object up and have it sink to the bottom of the ocean, but that failed. Instead that thing ended up targeting Milinda’s canons one by one to render her harmless. It seemed to be working wonders when Qwenthur had another one of his moments. I don’t want to want to speak ill of Milinda and her beloved object, but I am kind of hoping that she’ll become a little more useless in the long run.
Allow me to explain that I don’t dislike that character. I like the idea of humans destroying supposedly invincible mechs instead of mechs versus other mechs, which has been done to death. This is different than mechs going against each other, which is why I love it so. That is why I would love to see more of Qwenthur and his insane adventures.
Now, their captain kind of bugs me. She continues to tease the boys by flashing her underwear and then gets mad when they want more. Either give it to them or let them get some elsewhere. It’s war-time. If they are old enough to fight for their country then they are old enough to get their leg over. Stop with the prudish nonsense!Read More
Okay, I still feel a little under the weather and this episode wasn’t really as amazing as I had hoped, so I’ll be keeping it short and simple. I was kind of hoping that the romance would’ve set in by now, yet the protagonist doesn’t seem to be interested whatsoever.
I’ll come out and say it; I did not like that gyaru nonsense. I am not at all interested in characters like that because they are so incredibly fake. They try to come across as funny and cute but they’re really not. The comedy seems rather forced and you end up annoyed instead of amused. I’m just glad it was a short scene.
It’s really too bad that we only got a couple of minutes of loli-time this week. She is so funny and adorable that I wouldn’t mind if they made the entire show revolve around her instead of this oblivious protagonist. Although I’m pretty sure that we’ll get to see more of her now that she, too, has joined that weird “commoners club”. This should be interesting…Read More
I see this episode as the calm before the storm. Something big is about to go down and I can’t wait to see what that is. I’m guessing that another small army is about to appear in order to kill/abduct the princess.
What bothers me most is that they seem to trust that old geezer. It’s annoyingly obvious that he’s planning on betraying Orga and the rest so that he can walk away a hero (and quite possibly rich). I’m guessing that he’s contacted an organisation that’ll intercept them on their upcoming mission. It’s got to be something like that.
I’m kind of hoping that Orga (at least) knows that he’s up to something and that he’s simply going along with it to use whatever that geezer is planning to their advantage. I haven’t seen anything of the kind, which worries me, but I’ll be truly happy if that appears to be the case. This betrayal nonsense tends to get a little old.
I’m not even going to start on that whole investigation thing. I don’t even care of those two guys came down to see if a battle had taken place. It was quite a tough spot since the princess was close by during that time, which could’ve ended really badly. But it did pique my interest when they noticed Mikazuki’s back. I wouldn’t mind knowing a little bit more about that contraption. What exactly is it? What are the benefits or having something like that? I’m guessing it’s why he can pilot the Gundam, but there’s still too little we know about it.Read More
I really want to write a decent-size post about this week’s episode, but I can’t. I think I’ve come down with a classic case of the common cold and I just want to finish this fast and dive right into bed after finish my honey tea.
This episode was simply great. There wasn’t any fighting and I am fine with that. Seeing those guys fool around like that really made my week. Watching Ukon’s little sister observe that guy was interesting in itself, but when that other girl kept getting weird ideas about Ukon in some kind of gay love-fest I simply lost control. That was hilarious!
It was not much of a surprise to find out that Ukon was actually a general of the capital. The guy is strong and has shown great leadership skills. I would’ve been more surprised if it turned out that he was just a regular Joe that went from one place to the other. To think that he’s trying to recruit Haku… Things are about to get really interesting!Read More
I’m a little bit worried after seeing this episode. I am pretty sure that Yuuichirou is going to let himself get used again by either Guren or that other power-hungry maniac that seeks to rule the entire planet after killing all the other humans and vampires outside of ‘his’ city.
I don’t know what Guren is planning and I won’t pretend like I do know. I just don’t. He has a big mouth against that guy even though he knows he probably can’t win. There’s so much going on there that I don’t even stop to ask myself why Shinoa’s sister is haunting Guren like that. I’m completely focussed on Guren’s plans for the three boys that ended up mastering those three black demonic weapons. He definitely plans on using them at some point and that cocky creep knows that, which is why I’m sure he’ll continue to try and gain control of Yuuichirou.
There is so much going on that it gets hard sometimes to keep track of it. Guren has his own plans, that commander is of theirs has his own plan, the vampires are about to execute their plan and now it seems that there’s more coming. Mikaela is supposedly tasked with a top-secret mission to retrieve Yuuichirou without any of the vampires finding out.
It’s interesting that Mikaela’s new master wants to keep Yuuichirou away from all those vampires and humans, which goes to show that she, too, has plans of her very own. Those boys, a bunch of children that have undergone experiments, are standing at the very centre of it all and we’re about to find out why that is.Read More
