Akame ga Kill! episode 13

I am so loving Akame ga Kill! The episodes just keep getting better and better and predicting what will happen in the next one is kind of difficult, even though it should be so obvious. Thank god there are plenty more episodes to come.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 13 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.28_[2014.10.01_23.38.09]I think the first half of the episode can be overlooked in this review. It wasn’t extremely eventful. I knew about that weird pyromaniac and the fact that he has a loving family and everything. I knew that Tatsumi is getting stronger and is training every day. So yeah, I think it’s safe to just skip over that part and get on with more important stuff.

It was kind of surprising to find out that Lubbock, the Night Raid clown, has feelings for Nejanda. It was also quite surprising that he was a rich and talented prick before he laid eyes on Najenda and joined the army to follow her. That is some insane dedication. I truly hope, even though he’s kind of a perverted idiot, that he gets his wish someday.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 13 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.09_[2014.10.01_23.38.38]Now then, Esdeath has once again laid eyes on Tatsumi. She came falling down from the sky (literally) as Tatsumi was out on patrol with Lubbock. Could things get any better? He will once again be leashed and forced to sleep beside a busty beauty… Damn him! Where the hell is my busty beauty? I want one too! Hell, give me two or three of those! Sure, I have no idea what to do with any of them, but I’d still like at least one. That’s all I know. Not that it matters. My mind if completely focussed on Tatsumi’s response. Will he transform and run? Or will he be captured once again in order to be trained to become Esdeath’s perfect boy toy? I want to know!

Barakamon episode 12

That mom… Seishuu’s mother is one hell of a messed up character. She truly managed to put a weird spin on the ending. Nevertheless, I don’t think I’d ever forget about Barakamon and definitely believe that it deserves another season.

[HorribleSubs] Barakamon - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.32_[2014.09.30_23.35.02]That mother of his was crazy. She refused to let him go back to that island, so she decided to paste the walls of his room with little talismans that told him not to return to that ungodly island. Are they by any chance Jewish? I’m pretty sure only Jewish mothers cherish their children to a degree where they would practically force them to live at home for the rest of their lives. Can you really blame Seishuu for being a little bit strange? Just look at the characters that supposedly raised him. Both father and mother have got a screw or two loose. That poor guy…

[HorribleSubs] Barakamon - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.45_[2014.09.30_23.35.19]Anyway, Seishuu decided that his last submit for this season would be that sign what all those people’s names one it. I found that rather precious. He probably didn’t win, which makes sense and kind of pisses me off, but I think it’s brilliant and really finishes things off nicely. Do I have any regrets? Hell no. it was great from start to finish.

Did you see the look on everyone’s face when he returned? Priceless. This is just one of those rare endings where things make sense. It’s an actual ending, you know? I have no complaints about it whatsoever. I’m just really glad that I decided to write about Barakamon from start to finish. It was worth it.

Sword Art Online 2 episode 13

Seriously, am I good or am I good? I knew right away that that creep was one of the people behind that whole Death Gun nonsense. I knew it ever since I saw that guy with Shino (in “real life”). The way he acted was just too creepy, especially when Shino didn’t seem to want the same thing.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 13 [720p].mkv_snapshot_06.59_[2014.09.29_23.28.11]So Kazuto defeated the in-game Death Gun, huh? It’s kind of disappointing that he needed help in order to take him down. I think a real one on one match would’ve been a lot cooler, but I am fine with this. This should’ve solved things pretty nicely, right? After all, Death Gun has been defeated in-game and Shino will live to see another day.

It should be over now, right? After all, Kazuto remembered that guy’s old Sword Art Online name, which apparently was Zaza, so giving that name to the authorities will be enough, right? They will be able to find the person behind the mask, so to speak. Kazuto can once again convert that Gun Gale Online account of his to that fairy king account so that he can play with Asuna and their ‘daughter’.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 13 [720p].mkv_snapshot_15.49_[2014.09.29_23.28.27]Anyway, did you see the look on that creep’s face when he assaulted Shino? That was really gross. I didn’t know whether he wanted to rape her or inject her with that poison, which kind of proves that Kazuto was spot-on with his theory. He kept calling her name as she pinned her down with a disturbing look on his creepy face. Do some men really become like that? I have to believe that this is just a fiction anime event and that something like that doesn’t really happen. I just have to believe that. Shino should praise herself the luckiest girl in the country for having a friend like Kazuto, whom showed up to save the day once again by fighting off that creep.

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei episode 26

And so ends yet another memorable show. In the end the scene that I wanted to see the most never happened. Too bad. The ending is kind of annoying though. It makes you think that there’s more coming, even though nothing’s been confirmed yet.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 26 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.33_[2014.09.28_23.23.20]I honestly don’t care that certain things about Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei were rather predictable. Everyone knew that Tatsuya was going to dominate every single one of his enemies. We all knew. I knew before these whole ordeal even began. No need to go online and post garbage comments on anime forums, which is something that a lot of people are doing right now. What’s the point? Tatsuya saved a few of his friends, protected his little sister and defeated everyone in his path. Absolutely nothing wrong with that outcome if you ask me.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 26 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.24_[2014.09.28_23.23.49]Now, I do hate the fact that that Chinese b*st*rd seems to have gotten away. He helped those people over and over again and in the end didn’t get punished for it. I wouldn’t have been at all surprised if he was the mastermind behind all of it, but I can’t see what he could possibly gain from it. I doubt he’s after money.

But still, I don’t really like that it ended with a kind of cliff-hanger. Tatsuya and Miyuki are to visit their aunt because that major is coming over. That’s how it ended. It just makes you think that there’s something else… And I certainly didn’t like the idea of Tatsuya being chained like a dog by someone in order to keep him under control and obedient. Oh well… An overall great experience.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 379

This episode actually made me thing about whether or not Sasuke is capable of using Sage Art abilities. The manga is far ahead so I can’t remember, but I am pretty sure he can’t. I can’t remember anyone ever teaching him any of that.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 379 [720p].mkv_snapshot_11.59_[2014.09.27_23.22.56]Anyway, Obito became host to the Ten Tails and is giving everyone a run for their money. All of the Kages have been revived using the Edo Tensei, giving them immortal bodies. Having those bodies is quite the advantage, but not against Obito, seeing as his attacks render their bodies useless. He destroys parts of their revived bodies and they won’t regenerate. No more second chances for them.

They can’t even use regular Justsu anymore. Obito can only be touched by Sage Justsu now, which pretty much puts Naruto in the spotlight, seeing as he’s been thoroughly trained in the Sage Arts. Yes… Good times are ahead. I’ll just end this post by seeing that Obito would have been long dead if Itachi were still alive. Enough said.

Majimoji Rurumo episode 12

Majimoji Rurumo… I will never forget you. This must have been one of the hardest to predict shows in the history of anime. I’ve wasted plenty of time with theories, trying to predict what was going to happen next, but I don’t think I’ve ever been right. Well played.

[Anime-Koi] Majimoji Rurumo - 12 [h264-720p][ECA9A0D3].mkv_snapshot_08.27_[2014.09.26_23.15.50]A lot of people are kind of disappointed in the ending… Why? Is it because Rurumo never found out about what would happen to Kouta if she were to complete her witch training? Maybe it’s because that other witch never showed up again? Either way, I think this ending was quite alright. It fits, you know? An unpredictable ending for an unpredictable show. Besides, it did end something if you ask me. It was quite touching and overall pretty brilliant. The only problem with the ending is that Majimoji Rurumo ended with a low user rating score on pretty much every anime website.

[Anime-Koi] Majimoji Rurumo - 12 [h264-720p][ECA9A0D3].mkv_snapshot_19.33_[2014.09.26_23.16.13]What’s so wrong about making Kouta and everyone else to forget about Rurumo for a day? I think it was quite a clever test. They all noticed that something was missing in their lives and Kouta came pretty close to remember before he encountered Rurumo in the Kimono that he rented for her. Certainly not a bad idea at all.

Yes, I wish there was a bit more romance. I wish that their relationship had progressed a little bit further. But hey, it was never that type of show. It’s a comedy before anything else. In the end I was amusing every single week. One minute of Majimoji Rurumo was enough to put a smile on my face, so I have no regrets. This was definitely worth writing about in the end.

Ao Haru Ride episode 12

Alright. This post will be kept short, this will be kept simple and this will be kept honest. I do not think that Ao Haru Ride turned out to be a bad watch. There were plenty of times were I truly enjoyed watching it. That being said, I still think that Zankyou no Terror, which turned out to be wonderful from start to finish, would’ve been a much better pick for me.

[HorribleSubs] Ao Haru Ride - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.39_[2014.09.25_22.19.05]Anyway, Futaba-chan did it. She finally succeeded in breaking down that invisible wall and forced Kou to act his age a bit more. He was so angry and so scared all the time, apparently. Futaba seems to have fixed all that. Does she not realize that she has a hold over him? Dammit Futaba… Just do what most women do; try to dominate and control the living crap out of him.

Kou is slowly becoming more and more sociable with everyone. Nevertheless, was there any progress at the end? Not really. All we really got during these past twelve weeks were hugs and teenage drama. In the end it didn’t really meet my expectations. I would’ve thought that Kou would’ve asked Futaba out by now, but no… A pretty mediocre ending for an overall overrated, yet amusing show.

Akame ga Kill! episode 12

Is it just me or was the WTF-factor a little bit higher during this episode? People didn’t get cut down or torn to piece this time, but it was still a bit weirder than usual. Will I ever get used to it? Well, probably not. Nor do I need to.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.22_[2014.09.24_22.22.18]So the team acquired two new recruits, one of which actually turned out to be Najenda’s newest weapon; a human Imperial Arms by the name of Susanoo. I don’t really like that. I want to see Najenda fight someone. Now she just got herself a mobile weapon that does as she orders, so it’s probably going to be a long time before we get to see her fight. She will be using Susanoo to do her dirty work. In fact, there’s a good chance that we only get to see her fight against Esdeath near the end of the show, provided Tatsumi doesn’t win her over after all.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_11.39_[2014.09.24_22.22.21]This new Chelsea character is something else. She has quite a big mouth and doesn’t mind saying what’s on her mind. Still, her abilities are very useful and could prove to be fatal and funny at the same time. That scene where she transformed into a little animal in order to steal Mine’s cake was priceless. I watched that scene about four or five times before I had enough.

I was also a little bit surprised to see Tatsumi used that spear-like weapon. I know it’s part of Incursio, but I honestly thought that the weapon would take the shape of a sword or something. After all, Tatsumi’s a swordsmen. I still think that that weapon doesn’t really suit him like it did Bulat. Not that it matters. Tatsumi will soon after to worry about fighting off women like Esdeath and Leone, whom also has a little eye on him I think.
