Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans episode 08

Hmm… Well, it’s not that I could not see this coming, but I had at least hoped that they would punish that greedy, selfish old man. I figured that they wouldn’t just kill him for as long as he’s worth something.

[HorribleSubs] Mobile Suit Gundam - Iron-Blooded Orphans - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.57_[2015.11.26_00.30.39]Yeah, it kind of annoyed me to see that playboy treat Orga like a kid (not that he’s not) even though they successfully infiltrated their ship and gave some of their best fighters a run for their money. But what can you expect? Orga just barged in and requested a meeting with their boss so that they could become part of their organisation and gain their protection.

That part I could already see coming. I knew that he was going to ask them for help after he proved that they are not just a bunch of helpless kids. It may even have been a little cocky to request even more help by helping them sell some stuff to replenish their near-empty bank account. Goes to show that it always comes down to money. It always has been that way and it always will be that way.

Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen episode 08

This disgustingly underrated show of this season just keeps getting better and better. There are a lot of things that I want to say and even though I am still not completely over my gold, I simply refuse to keep this post short.

[HorribleSubs] Utawarerumono - Itsuwari no Kamen - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.11_[2015.11.24_23.49.33]What I want to get out in the open is the thought of us, the fans, getting to know Haku a bit better. We know almost nothing about him or where he comes from. Now it seems that people have started to take notice of him and, like me, want to know more about him. But that, like with most delicate things, is like a double-edged sword; there’s a chance that if Haku were to remember where he came from that his entire personality changes and that he chooses to go back. I don’t mind if he goes back to wherever he came from at the end of the show, but I wouldn’t like to a change in his personality.

[HorribleSubs] Utawarerumono - Itsuwari no Kamen - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_22.50_[2015.11.24_23.50.09]There. I said it. Now that that’s done I can focus on this week’s main event; the possibility of a corrupt general. Well, I say possibility because I hate to jump the gun. But yeah, he’s a dirty pig that ended up endangering everyone at that party by trying to get huge insects to fight each other for sport. That’s bound to go wrong at some point.

I’m not sure if that’s enough evidence to convict that pig (whose name I can’t be bothered to write due to it being so damn annoying). That would mean that a new general would be needed and I am kind of hoping that the owner of the inn or one of Kuon’s other ‘mothers’ gets that spot. Slim that of that happening, but hey, one can still hope.

Seraph of the End: Battle in Nagoya episode 07

A highly uneventful episode no matter what people say. The pace has slowed down again I think. I wish things would just pick up. I’d say that next week’s episode looks very promising, but I have been disappointed before…

[Ohys-Raws] Owari no Seraph 2 - 07(19) (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_20.32_[2015.11.23_23.16.17]We knew that they were walking into an ambush and we also knew that they were going to save their comrades before they decided. That was pretty much set in stone last week. That is why I cannot understand why it took almost half an episode for the first shot to be fired. I dare say that they tried to fill the episode up a bit.

What also bothered me is that it took another five or six minutes before they actually rushed in and the battle started. At that point the episode was already 75% over. I can only hope that next week’s episode, where Yuu-kun supposedly fights against that vampire noble, will be a lot better than this one and contains a lot less idling around.

K: Return of Kings episode 08

A very weird episode to be very honest. I simply expected a lot more. I hate how they are making the main characters seem so damn weak all of a sudden. I won’t lie; it’s becoming a little hard to watch right now. A little disappointing…

[Blaze077] K Return of Kings - 08 [720p][Softsubbed]-muxed.mkv_snapshot_06.01_[2015.11.23_00.18.26]So this new king shows up out of nowhere and starts hauling ass. He can create fog and use that gun of his countless times and god only knows what other abilities he has. That’s fine. What bothers me is how he managed to save the Green King, steal the slates, fight off three kings and still make it out of there without as much as a scratch on him. Am I the only one that’s bothered by this?

The Silver King has returned at last and he now seems like the weakest of all. All he ever did was deflect a few bullets. I think the Red King contributed a lot more than anyone else in terms of damage dealt. She, at the very least, tried. Don’t even get me started on the Blue King. He just failed miserably and took it out on one of his clansmen, whom seems to have changed sides again.

Noragami Aragoto episode 08

This episode pissed me off to no end. It almost feels as though we are back to square one. I thought that we would dive in Yato’s past and learn a bit more about him, but no… We went back in an entirely different way.

[Ohys-Raws] Noragami Aragoto - 08 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_18.04_[2015.11.22_00.09.49]Yato has come so far. He’s survived longer than anyone could’ve guessed and he’s even obtained a licensed shrine that allows him to attend godly meetings and whatnot. Things were going so well until that old Regalia of his decided to show her face again. That’s one thing, but now he’s actually back to being that old fearsome god that kills first and asks questions later (or not at all).

We have been following him for two seasons now and there has been some remarkable progress. To see him regress like this is just a complete pain. We know there’s not going to be a plot twist since we all already know what’s going on to a degree. All that’s left is for him to snap out of it, kill that Regalia and take care of that corrupted god.

Heavy Object episode 08

You’d have to be stupid if you couldn’t see this one coming. I mean, they focusses on it so much last week and now I read some posts by shocked Heavy Object fans. Are you insane or did someone just troll you with inacurrate subtitles?

[Ohys-Raws] Heavy Object - 08 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_01.23_[2015.11.20_23.32.41]What it all comes down to; the boys got betrayed by one of their superiors. He, some fat guy with a big rank, thought that it’d be best to get rid of those two boys since they’ve become famous for destroying Objects all on their own. He wanted to make sure that the world went back to the way it was; the country with the most Objects rules the world. Thought of people being capable of taking down Objects without an Object of their own scared the living daylight out of him that he decided to betray his own men. To think that he’d have such a big mouth there at the end…

[Ohys-Raws] Heavy Object - 08 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_15.33_[2015.11.20_23.33.16]Anyway, those two perverts did it. They managed to destroy yet another Objects without any help. They got pushed into a corner and once again emerged victorious. The one thing that bothers me a little (but only a little) is how a lot of those mechs look alike. They have the same kind of guns and canons, shapes and colour. There have been exceptions (like this week’s next-gen mech or that huge sea mech) but the rest really looks very similar. I wouldn’t call that a bad thing but it does give the impression that the author may have been a little lazy. Could be that there’s a catch behind it (maybe a lot of nations simply tried to copy a certain Object when it first came out).

Shomin Sample episode 07

I’ll just say it once and for all; this show really loses its magic when Hakua isn’t involved. They made this protagonist and created half a dozen heroines that’ll end up fighting over him and they spend too little time on the greatest one.

[Ohys-Raws] Ore ga Ojou-sama Gakkou ni 'Shomin Sample' Toshite Gets-sareta Ken - 07 (AT-X 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_05.57_[2015.11.19_23.41.48]I thought that something interesting was about to happen when Karen got put in the spotlight. Kimito complimented the living hell out of Karen and made her wear a very sexy outfit, after which she ended up running away embarrassed and flattered. That gave me false hope once again. I knew that nothing’s ever going to happen.

I have to accept that the magic of Shomin Sample drops whenever Hakua doesn’t get enough screen-time. Aika has pretty much fulfilled her mission (so to speak) and that’s that. I honestly can’t see her a potential girlfriend even though she did get closest to him so far by performing CPR. My money’s still on Hakua or Karen as a last resort. His maid is a no-go (until she actually kissed him).

Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans episode 07

This was a very good episode. There may be very little that I want to say about it, but that doesn’t change the fact that I really enjoyed watching it. This is how it should be; action, action and a little bit more action to top it off.

[HorribleSubs] Mobile Suit Gundam - Iron-Blooded Orphans - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.59_[2015.11.18_23.37.03]Our newest adversary appeared during last week’s episode and he, some fat guy that ran when their old base got attacked, wants his ship back even though he left it there when he ran. His ship survived the attack and now he thinks he can get it back. I don’t see it that way and I think that Orga agrees. He left it behind so they took it for themselves.

Now, they managed to survive the attack by pulling a few daring moves. The mobile suits of both parties got severely damaged before a temporary truce was reached. I say temporary because we all know that it won’t last. Either those kids become the enemy again or that greedy, selfish old men becomes the enemy. I’m kind of hoping for door number one since I wouldn’t mind an extra dose of action.
