Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso episode 20

Yeah, it is going to happen. Kaori is going to die. Probably not next week, but she is definitely going to die soon. Things are going downhill really fast. My favourite character is going to die for sure and my other favourite character might go nuts because of it.

[HorribleSubs] Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - 20 [720p].mkv_snapshot_00.17_[2015.03.06_23.59.43]The episode started off quite innocently. A few more scenes about their childhood and back to the world of music again. This was all quite normal when it comes to Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso. The worst part is that everything still seems rather normal. But that’s about to change right now as everyone already expects.

I know that Kaori hasn’t had that surgery yet. This tells me that she’s not going to die next week, at least. I have seen plenty of this show to know that they are going to wait until a certain moment where everything seems to be going good and then she’ll die. That’s how they always do it. They connect the good things to the bad. Probably the very last episode.

Tokyo Ghoul √A episode 09

This episode sure moved along a lot slower than I had imagined. This season, if I am not mistaken, only has twelve episodes. Yet Ken’s journey isn’t even well underway yet. For them to spend this much time on that many pointless scenes… I don’t know what to think of that.

[Ohys-Raws] Tokyo Ghoul A - 09 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_22.01_[2015.03.05_23.29.24]One of the most interesting scenes in this episode was when Akira tried to kiss that idiot partner of hers. He has had such a terrible life and one good thing pops up and he denies himself that. I mean, you are about to go to war against a lot of powerful ghouls and you get the one chance to laid with the woman you’re probably going to end up with, so for him to deny himself that… Idiotic.

So the old man whipped out of Kagune and assumed the role of the One-eyed Owl and already took down at least one or two dozen soldiers before those two powerhouses showed up. I don’t think they are strong enough to take him on, but should more of their friends appear… Who knows? I just hope Ken shows up in time before too many of his friends end up dead.

Parasyte episode 21

Okay, this was an expectable outcome but I do not at all like how things went down. It has a strange twist that made this episode and the last few episodes seem quite odd. I wonder why they did it like this to be honest.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 21 [720p].mkv_snapshot_11.45_[2015.03.04_23.50.20]I was really looking forward to seeing this episode. That super parasite was absolutely unstoppable. Wave after wave of soldiers came in and only ended up getting killed without even doing any real damage. You can shoot him with machine guns, shotguns or even grenade launchers. It won’t do you any good because he’ll either dodge it all or he’ll use a shield to reflect the bullets. You can’t hope to beat something like that with standard weaponry. They said something about napalm strikes and whatnot, but I doubt that something like that would be enough to kill him. He’d just run like hell or somehow shield himself from it.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 21 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.10_[2015.03.04_23.50.33]What bothered me is that these episodes were all about humanity striking back. About humanity taking control over this parasitic threat. Then I am shown a scene where Shinichi suddenly wakes up in his bed and the viewer, me, are left to wonder if the past few episodes actually happened or if it was all a dream that Shinichi had.

So what if Shinichi, thanks to that girl, finally became a man after all this time? I am more interesting in knowing how he’s going to deal with that monster. He cannot fight it head and with tactics he’d probably only get one chance to do some damage, and even that probably wouldn’t be enough to finish him off. I really, really want to know!

Kamisama Kiss 2 episode 08

Okay, I am keeping this post short because of the fact that I pretty much predicted this entire episode ahead of time. I find that very disappointing, especially seeing as Kamisama Kiss has never been all that predictable before.

[Ohys-Raws] Kami-sama Hajimemashita 2 - 08 (TX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_04.40_[2015.03.04_00.21.38]I’m sure we all knew that Nanami was going to interfere one way or the other. She always sympathizes with others so easily and she always tends to stick her nose where it doesn’t belong. So yeah, not at all surprised when she walked up that mountain and got caught by some big Tengu. It was sad that she ran away after being scared to death like that, but it was her own fault this time.

The worst part is that she got so scared that she was actually trembling, but now she’s going back there again even though she knows full well that women aren’t allowed on that mountain, which makes me wonder how those bird-guys reproduce. Nanami is simply looking for trouble, although she probably expects that Tomoe will come to her rescue this time.

Maria the Virgin Witch episode 08

I am truly exhausted. I don’t even want to write this post to be very honest. Still, I think this show is worth a post even if it’s going to be short this time, although the episode definitely deserves a big post if you ask me.

[Ohys-Raws] Junketsu no Maria - 08 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_02.44_[2015.03.02_22.45.38]So Maria got attacked by Ezekiel and is now recovering. The word has spread far and wide and people now know that they can go to war without having to worry about outside interference. This will mean a lot more casualties and a lot more conflict. The question is if England will actually survive at the end of the day now that they don’t have Maria to stop them from going to war.

The church has worked so hard to get rid of Maria. Now they got what they wanted. I’ll be looking forward to seeing them crawl back to Maria at the end of the day. And is it just me or have those people been poisoned somehow. People are slowly becoming more and more obsessed with the church and are starting to think negatively of Maria. I wonder what’s that about?

Aldnoah.Zero 2 episode 08

Okay, I personally consider this episode the calm before the storm, even though it was filled with a lot of awesome action. I have a feeling that the action in this episode is going to be nothing compared to the action we’re about to see.

[HorribleSubs] Aldnoah Zero - 20 [720p].mkv_snapshot_00.18_[2015.03.01_23.43.02]Let’s tackle the action bit first; Inaho and the rest of his friends and colleagues were fighting off two (I think?) mechs. It was difficult. One was invisible and the other was using electricity to defend and attack at the same time. I’m not sure if that was the same mech or even the same battle, but it was pretty darn awesome. I also think it was the first time where Inaho was actually cornered. He usually has a plan and things usually go according to that plan, but now he was getting pushed back badly. It actually made me wonder how he would ever face Slaine if he couldn’t even deal with guys like that.

[HorribleSubs] Aldnoah Zero - 20 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.50_[2015.03.01_23.43.13]Anyway, princess Asseylum has awakened and she is starting to remember all sorts of things. The other princess, whom is clearly losing bits and pieces of her sanity, found out that her ‘dear’ sister had disappeared from that container and probably knows that something’s up. Even that handmaid girl called Eddelrittuo is beginning to question it at all as well.

This episode really made me respect Inaho even more, despite the fact that he got pushed back. He let that blonde count go back to his people in order to find out more information about princess Asseylum. It just goes to show how far Inaho plans ahead and how well his plans work out. He took a chance and it seems that that chance is about to pay off.

Assassination Classroom episode 07

Oh, okay… Not exactly the kind of episode I expected, but I suppose there were a few interesting scenes. And, unfortunately, a few disappointing once as well. I suppose that’s how it always goes, isn’t it?

[Ohys-Raws] Ansatsu Kyoushitsu - 07 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_08.06_[2015.03.01_00.27.10]So last week’s episode went by quickly and I was really surprised to see them go on a class trip so soon. I kept thinking about what the angle of it was. I mean, first those children are forced to make an unfairly modified test to make sure they get poor grades. Now they are sent to another part of the country on a field trip right after they finished their exams. One cannot help but to think about the real reason as to why they’ve been sent on that trip. There is always a reason, especially when class E is involved. I just can’t put my finger on it…

[Ohys-Raws] Ansatsu Kyoushitsu - 07 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_11.53_[2015.03.01_00.27.13]Anyway, some of the students got abducted by a small group of thugs and I immediately started to think about the idea of it. Where they ordered to do so? If so; what was the point of it all? I just find it a very strange twist in the story. Were those students just at the wrong place at the wrong time? Was it really all a coincidence?

There is only one thing that I know for sure; it’s a damn shame that Koro-sensei interfered. I would’ve liked to see those students solve it themselves without that alien showing up to solve it for them. They are being trained as killers for god’s sake; at least let them defend themselves against a group of thugs like that.

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso episode 19

Thank you, Japan. You officially killed Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso for me. The single most loved character on the show is about to kick the bucket in order to make things more dramatic? What a stupid idea if you ask me.

[HorribleSubs] Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - 19 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.41_[2015.02.27_23.27.55]I don’t know how much longer Kaori-chan will live. This could be my second last post because she might die next week. I still don’t know what’s wrong with her, only that she agreed to have surgery so that she may live a little longer. I can only imagine that it’s a brain tumour or some other type of cancer that’s surging through her body.

Anyway, I listen to a bit of music at the end and it was quite nice, but I just couldn’t shake the thought of Kaori dying soon. I simply can no longer enjoy the story as much as I did at first. Kousei is making such remarkable progress and I can’t sit here and enjoy fully because I know that my favourite character is about to die a horrible death.
