Amagi Brilliant Park episode 04

Wooh~! I did not expect a little twist like this one. I am rather pleased with it, actually. It just goes to show that Amagi Brilliant Park is so ridiculous (a good kind, of course) that it makes it hard to predict what will happen next.

[Vivid] Amagi Brilliant Park - 04 [C442142C].mkv_snapshot_03.42_[2014.10.25_23.50.24]The almighty Seiya, whose perfect life partner is himself, was really on his game for most part of the episode. He managed the park like a real manager, make improvements, made suggestions and executed idea’s like tomorrow would never come. He was really on fire. The same thing cannot be said for Isuzu, whom felt like a useless third wheel. She realized that most of her suggestions weren’t necessary because Seiya was already on top of it. She became very agitated and aggressive because of it. It was a side of her we have never seen before and I kind of liked it!

[Vivid] Amagi Brilliant Park - 04 [C442142C].mkv_snapshot_14.15_[2014.10.25_23.50.49]Still, Isuzu proved that she wasn’t completely useless. She proved to be quite capable in emergency situations. She took control and gave out orders to the staff that resulted in a successful rebound. The rain ended up doing minimal damage and the park was once again saved from the clutches of Mother Nature.

Still, this was the fourth episode and the park is still closed. They are still working hard to improve the attractions and clean up the park. The problem is still money. They have too little of it and not everyone can get what he/she wants. I wonder if this will become a problem when the park reopens, which should be any week now.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 383

I find this episode quite amusing for one simple reason; the five Kage showed up after being absent for quite some time. They showed up and turned out to be quite useless, but that was to be expected. The five of them couldn’t do a damned thing against Madara, so what chance do they have against Obito and the Ten Tails?

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 383 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.12_[2014.10.25_23.49.24]The big chiefs show up and the new generation has to clean up their mess once again. Isn’t that how it’s always been? They manage things and at one point things south, at which point the new generation gets to take over and do the dirty work. That’ll end with Naruto if all goes as he planned. He’s certainly doing his best to ensure that all of his friends live to see that day.

Is it annoying that Obito withstood that combined attack from Naruto and Sasuke? Yes. Is it even more annoying that they’re both nearly rendered incapable of fighting any further? Definitely. But what will take the cake is how Naruto will gain yet another boost in power (probably his 11.209th boost). That much is certain.

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso episode 03

I think this episode basically just answered every single one of my questions. That is quite impressive. Normally I’d have to wait a few weeks before my questions get answered one by one. God bless Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso.

[HorribleSubs] Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.26_[2014.10.24_22.48.58]So Kaori, as I pretty much already expected, knew exactly whom Kousei was. It seems that he is too much of a celebrity to remain unknown for long. Not only does she know about him, she actually wants him to become her accompanist. That is beyond straightforward. I still remember her getting freaked out when she thought that he was making a picture of her panties, which, of course, was not the case. I can also clearly remember how she went nuts for Ryouta and asked Tsubaki to introduce them to one another. Now it’s all heading in a completely different direction.

[HorribleSubs] Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.33_[2014.10.24_22.49.46]It surprised me even more when Tsubaki and Ryouta supported Kaori in her quest to drag Kousei behind a piano again. That I definitely like! If he is indeed a truly talented pianist that is destined to make great music, why not? Let them stalk him as much as they think is necessary if it were to help him play again. Go nuts!

Now then, let’s see if I can predict what is going to happen in the future. It is my guess that Kaori and Kousei really will fall for each other. It is also my guess that Ryouta and Tsubaki may become an item. I doubt that that Tsubaki’s flame will still burn strongly when she finds out that Kousei has a thing for Kaori. Rough times are ahead…

Psycho-Pass 2 episode 03

Our eventful adventure continues and I already noticed certain things that basically take away the element of unpredictability. I don’t like that. Psycho-pass has always been rather unpredictable due to its twists.

[Ohys-Raws] Psycho-Pass 2 - 03 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_01.40_[2014.10.24_22.50.05]Anyway, I cannot deal with this enemy. The guy is a nut job. The last one had a clear idea of what was wrong and was going about it the “right way”. This guy just cuts people open, removes body parts and manipulates them. He is truly worthy of the title of monster. He just shines a whole new light on the concept of insanity.

I’m also not a big fan of inspector Risa. She may seem like a badass at times, but she breaks quite easily. She thinks that she feels comfortable whenever she’s holding a dominator, one of those badass guns. I honestly couldn’t care less about her and wouldn’t mind at all if she were to never enter the spotlight ever again.

[Ohys-Raws] Psycho-Pass 2 - 03 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_12.14_[2014.10.24_22.50.27]I was kind of surprised to see how people reacted to inspector Akane’s report. They all think she’s slowly losing her mind and wrote that message on her own wall herself. There are no logs of anyone entering her home and doing that to her wall, and it seems that the owner is the only one that can avoid getting logged. It even escalated to the point where she went to see a criminal in a high security facility for advice. It seems that she trusts his judgement and thinks that he might be able to help her find out what’s happening right now. I guess the sh*t’s about to hit the fan.

Parasyte episode 03

Another eventful Parasyte episode. I must say that this one really got me thinking about what to expect from Parasyte. Quite frankly, I am not sure that I like what I’m seeing here. This episode was quite worrying if you stop to think about it.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.52_[2014.10.23_23.18.16]So a couple of parasites joined the big picture. I thought that Shinichi, having gained a little bit of power through that parasitic friend of his, would’ve become a parasite hunter and exterminated all of them. I kept in mind the fact that Migi merely wants to survive and prefers to avoid any and all conflict with other parasites if he can. This puts Shinichi, who wants to kill all human-eating parasites, in a very weird place, especially now that he has to deal with two of them, one of which may be more intelligent and experience than him and Migi.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.23_[2014.10.23_23.18.51]Okay, so let’s talk about this “A” guy. He is not on that woman’s level yet, but he poses an immediate threat now that he’s standing face to face with Shinichi. Will he win though? Probably not. I’d be amazed if Shinichi and Migi ended up victorious again without even a scratch on ‘em. I’m fine with them continuing their winning streak, but keep it a little bit more realistic (and I am using that term loosely right now).

And finally, that woman… She is actually Shinichi’s math teacher and knows whom he cherishes the most. She actually has a hostage that she could harm whenever she pleases, basically ensuring Shinichi’s full cooperation. She planned it all out and she is probably more experienced than Migi, making her a very big threat. This is going to get rough…

Trinity Seven episode 03

So we finally got a clear picture of what we can expect from Trinity Seven. We already knew what it was about and had a rough idea of what we could expect, but now we know for sure. We finally know what drives this story.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.50_[2014.10.22_23.47.56]Despite the fact that I dislike the way they started this episode (as though nothing had happened last week, followed up by the actual story of what happened), I still find it very interesting. I also find that other girl, Yui, quite interesting. She seems to have an interesting ability. I cannot help but be a little curious, you know?

I won’t even discuss those hot springs and beach scenes for too long. What’s the point? The protagonist is a straightforward pervert that will always say what’s on his mind without thinking things through. When you combine all of that with a group of cute girls… Well, the result is pretty darn obvious if you look at it objectively.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.56_[2014.10.22_23.48.07]But no, Arata takes the spotlight again after he officially became a mage. He accessed the archives, chose a “thema”, and actually entered this so-called “magus-mode”. I am not sure if I understood this correctly, but I am pretty sure that a mage can only research one “thema” and can therefor only use one type of magic. It seems that that doesn’t apply to our protagonist. He can chose whatever “thema” he wants and utilize whatever type of magic he wants. I don’t know if there’s a limit or anything like that, but I’m guessing he’s going to be copying the magic of the Trinity Seven members, which would be why he needs to meet all seven of them.

Grisaia no Kajitsu episode 03

I was afraid this would happen. I am already starting to slowly lose interest in this show. We are three episodes in and I’m still wondering what it’s all about. What is the point of it? Is there a goal that we need to keep in mind? We’re just going in circles right now.

[HorribleSubs] Grisaia no Kajitsu - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_01.25_[2014.10.21_23.06.05]What kind of start was this anyway? The protagonist thought that he had to defend himself once more from some insane character that tries to go after his life. Instead a girl just picks the lock on his door in order to fake masturbating on his bed because she knew he was watching. Just what kind of start is this? Is this going to be a regular thing?

Even I admit that it is really funny at times. And I like to laugh, too. But at least give me something to look forward to. Even “going with the flow” becomes quite boring after a while. This is a perfect example of that. Nothing new has happened since Yuuji transferred to that strange school. Nothing new whatsoever.

[HorribleSubs] Grisaia no Kajitsu - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.00_[2014.10.21_23.06.50]I am just looking for a story here. I don’t care if girls are after him. I don’t care of some girls wish to be his girlfriend, sister or grandmother in order to get closer to him for some reason. All I want at this point is a clear picture of what I can expect from this otherwise pointless story. I thought that this anime, which was adapter from some erotic visual novel (obviously), was one of those rare exceptions, but I am starting to believe that I was wrong all along. Please, Grisaia no Kajitsu, prove that I wasn’t wrong about this show!

Akame ga Kill! episode 16

This episode was shocking, a little disappointing and quite frankly a little bit annoying. It just pissed me off to no end. Let’s just say that this wasn’t the episode that I had hoped for and that the ending that I am hoping for won’t happen either.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 16 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.26_[2014.10.20_23.40.36]Quite a few things became clear to me. For one; Bolls is going to die. I am certain of that. Kurome is not. I can tell that much just by watching the first few minutes of this episode. She will survive this ordeal. The way this usually works is that the enemy loses at least one member and the good guys too. My guess is that Chelsea’s going to die. They focussed way too much on her habit to remain in the shadows, but she broke that habit because of her feelings for Tatsumi. Either Bolls will kill her or Kurome, but she is definitely going to die within the next few episodes.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 16 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.26_[2014.10.20_23.40.59]I have been hoping that Kurome would die. Her power is ridiculous, unfair and immoral. But that’s not why I wanted her dead the most. That has passed. The reason why I want her dead right now is because she chopped off one of Leone’s arms. How dare she do that the one of the show’s most lovable characters!? She really deserves as painful death.

I am also disappointed to see Najenda fight. She is nothing special. She only has abnormal strength and that annoying robot arm. Other than that she’s nowhere near Esdeath’s level. I bet that Susanoo, whose new battle mode I absolutely love by the way, would be able to defeat her in a one on one battle. Definitely not worth the wait.
