Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei episode 22

Just a couple of episodes left before Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei has finished airing. Can you already see the ending? I can. I see Tetsuya standing strong as one of Japan’s strongest magicians. Overpowered main characters are awesome!

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 22 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.42_[2014.08.31_23.33.54]I was both surprised and at the same time not at all surprised when I saw Tatsuya go about his routine. I know that sounds very strange and pretty much impossible, but at one point I thought that he would go on the offensive. He’s not the type of person that sits idly by as his friends and family are being targeted by some mysterious organisation. At the same time I thought that he wouldn’t be fazed by any of this because he knows that he is stronger and that his friends can defend themselves very well. He was just more focussed on catching more enemies spies, in which he succeeded quite nicely I might add.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 22 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.17_[2014.08.31_23.34.16]I was surprised the most by that big guy. He always seemed so strong and careful, so to see him go out in the open like that was kind of strange. Not only did he simply reveal himself, he just attacked head-on as though he thought that he couldn’t get hurt by a bunch of kids. He won’t be trying that again anytime soon after his second attempt failed. Or will he? It all seemed to go a bit too easy if you ask me…

Let’s just quickly summarize this episode right now. Tatsuya caught yet another rat, his friends caught that big shot, Miyuki nearly stole a kiss when her brother was sleeping and the enemy, although supposedly wounded after the events of late, seems to be planning an all or nothing attempt to find and steal that artefact. That’s right; good times are ahead.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 374

Now this is an episode worth watching! It’s too bad that I have to cut the post short. I have been getting dizzy spells all day and all I want to do right now is finish this post and go to bed. I suppose we all have our bad days.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 374 [720p].mkv_snapshot_02.57_[2014.08.30_23.03.33]So team seven, Naruto, Sasuke and Sakura, have all used their Summoning Jutsu in order to call forth their friends. I still think that Naruto’s toads beat Sasuke’s snakes and pretty much everything else beats Sakura’s slugs. I’m not at all a fan of slugs. It was kind of fun to see how Gamakichi has grown. I still remember the small, cocky Gamakichi and his fat, yellow brother. He’s grown into quite the badass now.

I’m looking forward to seeing more of their “Three-way deadlock”, but I also want to see all the Kage’s back in action after Tsunade is done healing them. I bet that Tsunade wouldn’t mind seeing her grandfather again. Besides, they can use all the help that they can get with Madara still on the loose (not to mention the Ten Tails and Tobi).

Tokyo Ghoul episode 09

I knew it. I knew this was going to be an episode about those Doves. One of them died again last week, so I knew that this episode was going to revolve around him. I can only hope that this was the last one, seeing as he’s not exactly all that interesting.

[Ohys-Raws] Tokyo Ghoul - 09 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_04.00_[2014.08.29_23.25.43]We all knew that Koutarou, that junior dove, had been trained by Kureo. I must admit that that scene about that old lady Ghoul was pretty cool. But yeah, I am just not interesting Kureo. The guy was a creepy, power-hungry monster that simply took too many lives. I don’t care about his story or his reasons. Not even if his entire family was massacred by Ghouls or something like that. He killed old Ghouls, young Ghouls and probably even Ghouls that chose not to fight (like Hinami’s father).  He simply got what he deserved.

[Ohys-Raws] Tokyo Ghoul - 09 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_22.12_[2014.08.29_23.26.14]My problem with Tokyo Ghoul right now is that Ken is still weak. He knows how to use some of his Ghoul powers now, but he’s afraid to lose control. He still knows very little and his progress is slow at best. He finally has his mask and fought against an enemy, but yeah… Not much progress… Even though a lot of Ghouls from other districts are coming to visit him. He’ll probably have to fight for his life after all those Ghouls find out about him. It just makes me even more curious about Rize. All those Ghouls have come to that city just for her. I really want to know why…

Majimoji Rurumo episode 08

What a strange episode. I already has a vague idea of what was going to happen when I watched the preview last week, but this pretty much exceeded my expectations. Even more reason to start thinking about a second season, Japan.

[Anime-Koi] Majimoji Rurumo - 08 [h264-720p][CE292C37].mkv_snapshot_03.50_[2014.08.29_23.24.48]So little girls now come falling from the skies, giving perverts like Kouta an eyeful of glistening purple panties. Not that I, the viewer, had time to admire her panties though. I was more focussed on her enormous head. I think it was her outfit, because she landed and I saw one hell of a head on a pair of tiny shoulders. That was insane. Her freaky cat didn’t make things any better either. That thing looks like its planning to commit mass murder. No wonder that Chiro doesn’t like those two. I’m just glad that that cat didn’t say anything in the end.

[Anime-Koi] Majimoji Rurumo - 08 [h264-720p][CE292C37].mkv_snapshot_15.13_[2014.08.29_23.25.10]So this little girl comes floating down and offers Kouta a free ticket to some magic. Not very surprising that he wished for something that would allow him to fulfil his perverted needs. It’s just that her need to seek Rurumo’s affection is just too weird. All the characters have gotten used to Rurumo’s pokerfaced reactions. No need to follow her around…

She left in the end, but I am certain that she will return again. I am sure of it. In fact, I think that she’s going to be the one to tell Rurumo about what happens when she completes her witch training, after which Rurumo will probably quit. I don’t think Rurumo would do anything that would harm Kouta, not now that she has fallen for him.

Ao Haru Ride episode 08

This whole story is just going back in forth. It’s almost like watching a random child that’s plucking leaf petals from a flower. “She loves me, she loves me not, she loves me, she loves me not…” It’s quite annoying if it goes on for too long.

[HorribleSubs] Ao Haru Ride - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.03_[2014.08.28_22.50.36]So Futaba finally managed to find the courage to tell Yuuri about her feelings for Kou. I think it’s quite admirable how Yuuri dealt with the news. Sure, she was bit surprised and rather sad, but she took it very well. Besides, she doesn’t strike me as the type of character that will do anything to get what she wants. I think she’s as straight as an arrow. That is why I’d rather see her win that Futaba, but that’s obviously not going to happen. Futaba is just way too fussy and has quite a few problems, and I don’t think that their past should give her the edge, even though it obviously does.

[HorribleSubs] Ao Haru Ride - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.37_[2014.08.28_22.50.58]Quite frankly, the only one that I’m actually rooting for is Shuuko-chan. So what if she has a crush on her teacher? They aren’t extremely far apart when it comes to age, so why not? Just wait until Shuuko-chan graduates and date her. Date her now if you think you can keep it quiet… I only say that because I think that Kou’s older brother is a good guy, of course.

Was there any actual progress? I don’t know. Futaba told Yuuri about her feelings for Kou and says that she’s seriously going after him now. I never thought she would literally follow the guy around town like he has honey stuck to his ass. I just hope that Kou will notice her feelings soon. It’s time that he, too, grows up a little instead of acting like a sad, attention craving child.

Akame ga Kill! episode 08

Jesus, this is going fast. This show is completely insane. The author creates all these interesting characters and later kills them off one by one. How messed up is that? It makes it damn near impossible to predict the next step.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.50_[2014.08.27_16.19.50]Sheele went first. She died during her fight against Seryuu and her insane little friend. Now it’s Bulet, self-proclaimed hero and first class fighter, that gives up his life in a fight against his old general. The old man seems to have given up on their justice system after they tried to have him killed. That ice queen, Esdeath, sent three of her best men after Night Raid and all three ended up getting killed. Night Raid ended up losing yet another powerful member, which in turn ended up making Tatsumi stronger than ever, now that he has inherited Bulat’s Imperial Arms.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.50_[2014.08.27_16.20.06]The thought of Tatsumi shouting “Incursio!” during every episode is kind of strange, don’t you think? It’s obvious that Tatsumi will be transforming all over the place, but he doubt that he, too, will be fighting off enemies with some kind of spear-type weapon. I for one can’t see him wielding any weapon other than a sword.

I wonder how the other Night Raid members will react to this news. They lost yet another member in few days’ time. Will they even have time to mourn his death now that more enemies keep popping up all over the place? I don’t know. I just can’t wait to see Najenda join the fight. She has yet to do any real fighting even though she’s their leader. It’s about time she showed us some of her moves…

Barakamon episode 08

Seishuu’s friends have gone back to Tokyo after seeing how he was doing. This made me believe that Seishuu would start to focus a bit more on his work. Boy, it is quite painful to see how incredibly naïve I was. There’s no way that Seishuu will leave those kids alone or vice versa.

[HorribleSubs] Barakamon - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_00.43_[2014.08.26_13.40.21]So it’s Naru’s birthday and the whole group is practically going nuts about getting her gifts and preparing a surprise party. Seishuu did not escape this insanity and joined a group of boys to hunt down insects to give Naru as a gift. You know, I’ve never once met a little girls that actually liked insects. To think that those exist…

I must say that it was quite painful to see Seishuu play along with those kids. He kept hurting himself, he couldn’t even catch a single bug and the one that he did catch ended up getting killed. You’d think that this would only be a scene of a couple of minutes, but no… This was pretty much half of this week’s episode.

[HorribleSubs] Barakamon - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.10_[2014.08.26_13.41.00]I don’t care though. I learned a lot more about Naru and her charm just got bigger. She is still the most adorable character on the show and she just keeps getting cuter. I actually got a little choked up when she said that she got quite bored and sad whenever she has to watch over her grandmother’s grave during some kind of special day. It just got to me when she said that this year was so much better and enjoyable since she had Seishuu to keep her company. Her grandfather, supposedly her last blood related relative, won’t be with them for much longer if you consider his age, so I’m guessing that Seishuu will play an even bigger role in her future (not that something like that would actually happen on Barakamon, of course).

Sword Art Online 2 episode 08

Ah, this sucks! I was writing this post yesterday when suddenly a blackout decided to ruin my plans to write and schedule this post, forcing me to start this post all over again because I couldn’t save it. Well, I do it willingly since this particular episode was so damn good.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.01_[2014.08.26_13.39.16]The pace suddenly just picked up. I thought this was going to be another one of those slow episodes where Kazuto made his way to the finals, but no… This turned out to be a lot more than that. I’m not sure if I have this right, but I think this may actually be the finals. They put thirty something players in a big field and let them fight it out amongst themselves. One player is supposed to remain standing (if I understood correctly) and come out as the sole winner of this match. Normally I wouldn’t by fazed by this, but I am getting quite excited since Kazuto, Shino and Death Gun are all on the map. This means that only one of them will win, right?

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.52_[2014.08.26_13.39.47]Kazuto is still worried about that guy. Does he really have the power to kill someone with some in-game weapon? He doesn’t know, nor is he willing to take any risks. He told Shino to stop Death Gun from killing that guy because he thinks that his victim might die in real life, too. Kazuto is really taking this seriously. The fact that Death Gun is an old Sword Art Online player from a player killing guild must’ve sealed the deal for Kazuto. He’s completely serious and has been acting like a nervous, panicky little brat since he had that talk with Death Gun. I’m quite interested to see how he will deal with this situation next week.
