Wow, what the hell? This show took a really weird turn. I thought it was all about that gorilla and his unstable love live, but then more and more characters got involved, and now that kind of peaked. Things just got really weird.
To start things off; Takeo did not spend that much time with his loving angel. It seems that he was too focussed on the fact that the brick chicken house he calls his mother is going to spawn yet another offspring at the age of forty. That woman is insane; she’s forty years old and already has a huge son in high school, and now she’s having another child? The age difference between the child and Takeo will be about fifteen or sixteen years? Something like that? How does that even work? I thought that the age difference between me and my brother (six years) was a lot, but this… insanity!
What surprised me the most is that Takeo seems genuinely excited about it. He already has a brother from another mother, but it seems that he wouldn’t mind a brother from the same mother after all these years. That’s what scares me. Doesn’t he realize that it’s potentially dangerous for his mother to have children at this point?
But that’s that. He will have plenty of other stuff on his mind. The fact that his best friend’s father has been taken to the hospital and that his mother is miles away is going to take up a lot of his time, I guess. I’m pretty sure Takeo’s girlfriend will be showing up as well to try and help him now that he’s alone, even though he’s not the type to ask for help.Read More
Unbelievable. It’s been five months since those dreadful fillers started. Five months! That’s the longest period of fillers I’ve ever known in Naruto. Those sad morons are really trying to milk this thing to its fullest, aren’t they?
Let’s face it; the last movie came out, the manga ended (and fortunately a new one started) and now they are trying to prolong the series as long as they can. I wouldn’t be surprised if in a few months’ time they are going to give us even more fillers to milk this show even more. What a truly sad thing to see… Nothing but fillers for almost half a year…
And they left us at such a good part, too. That’s why they were sure that the fans would stick around. Naruto was dying, Sasuke was injured and Madara’s mission was going pretty well with him now absorbing the Ten Tails. Yes, he looked pretty cool after that, but hey… Naruto’s still the best. No exceptions.
What pissed me off most about this episode is that we endured five months’ worth of fillers. Five boring months of useless Naruto Shippuuden episodes. Then we finally get to see the continuation of the latest great ninja war and we see the exact same mistakes that were made way before. I mean, Naruto’s father tries to give Naruto the other half of the Nina Tails so that he becomes even stronger, only to see Zetsu get in between to take that power for himself. How can you even make a mistake like that? It is petty crap like that that makes me want to stop watching sometimes…Read More
Honestly, this episode doesn’t even deserve a full post. We all knew this was coming and I for one went “duh!” after it finished. I could’ve predicted this one from start to finish after how they ended the last episode.
Let’s face it; that weapon, created by a parasite-infected brat, ended up being more than they could handle. It went out of control after it kept absorbing more and more energy. So what happens? That’s right. The whole of Sidonia is alerted because a threat on their ship was detected. Mechs are sent out to fight it and the whole wheel of mayhem just goes round and round.
The threat sort of dealt with itself. And now? That guy is simply going to continue his experiments and that captain is going to let him because she’s so power-hungry. Nothing will change if nobody steps up and says and does something about it. Experiments will continue to fail until those people are stopped. Time will tell…Read More
Okay, better… Much better. It’s a damn shame that I’ve come down with a tremendous headache and have to make this post short and sweet before diving into bed. Some days are hardly worth it, you know?
So Class E decided to execute their plan. They seemed to have been working on it for some time and things went pretty smoothly. They made use of a lot of his weaknesses in order to push him into a corner where he couldn’t use his insane speed to escape. You could say he dug his own grave for promising not to go anywhere.
They trapped him, tricked him and successfully forced him to use his trump card; his last defence. A mode where he traps himself inside a little indestructible ball. He cannot move whilst inside and people can do whatever they want with him during that period. Sounds like a poor defence to me? Just throw that ball inside a container filled with melted anti-alien liquid.Read More
Okay, I’m not even going to bother focussing on Zapp’s interest in some Burger King-wannabe employee. It’s just not really worth my time since that guy messed around all the time. I have yet to see him serious about anything.
But hey, that’s Zapp. I already thought that there was nothing interesting about Zapp or anything that even remotely relates to him. Yeah, I thought that, but then this awesome character shows up out of nowhere and starts hauling so much ass that he’s instantly tied with Klaus for my number one favourite character spot on this show. Seriously, this dude was so strange and yet so freakishly awesome that I couldn’t keep my eyes away from him. He looks weird, he talks weird and he fights like a true champ. Who knew that Zapp, a childish boar of a man, had a master like that? Shocking.
So this character whose name I failed to catch was fighting head to head with one of those blood breeds and defeated him without breaking a sweat. Sure, this particular blood breed may not have been “complete” during that time, but it doesn’t make that old guy any less amazing. He ‘pwned’ that blood breed and still managed to find time to put his disciple to the test.
Yeah, I definitely want to see more of that guy. I also don’t mind seeing a bit of that knew character that he was talking about. Apparently there’s another Zapp somewhere. What a dreadful thought. But hey, I’m liking this whole “Blood Dipper Style”. I could definitely do with a bit more of that, so go ahead and bring out that character.Read More
I must admit that this episode was a remarkable improvement over the last one. I’m not saying that pace has finally picked up. There’s still way too much that needs to be explored and many gaps that need to be filled.
Yuuichirou finally showed us what he’s got. They, and by they I mainly mean that annoying little blonde girl, kept annoying him all day for not listening to orders and whatnot. And yeah, he didn’t really listen that good, but you know, that girl is still alive because he didn’t. She is still alive because he decided to ignore those orders and fight those bloodsuckers. He spared her from a dreadful death and he managed to kill a few of them in the process. Yes, definitely remarkable improvement over last week’s uneventful episode if you ask me. Without a doubt.
Okay, now, I would like to express my confusion about Yuuichirou’s weapon. I remember that demon saying that he needs to call out her name if he wants to benefit from her demonic powers. I have not yet seen him call her out, yet those tribal marks appeared on his face either way. Did he say it in his head? Does it work that way? Or has he simply not used the real deal yet? Because that would be strange, seeing as he encountered a noble this week and almost didn’t live to tell about it. I am really curious about how that power works and if he really needs to call out her name for him to receive her true power.Read More
Another great episode. DanMachi started out so underrated because it was a little ecchi and people thought that it was going to be one of those cheap shows that cared more about fan service than giving us a good story. Wrong! It turned out to be a great show and the ratings now reflect that.
This episode turned out quite nice. Bell-kun has been training with the sword princess for a whole week and even she could not believe how fast his progress was. This is both good and bad. It’s good that he’s making a lot of progress that might just end up saving his life more than once, but it’s bad that others are now starting to notice that there’s something abnormal about his progress. People get suspicious when he can do things that someone of his level shouldn’t be able to do yet, not to mention the fact that he’s clearing dungeons that other players would take months if not years to reach.
Have I said that I absolutely love the pace in DanMachi? Of course I did. It’s amazing. I can’t say it enough. They didn’t waste any time on bringing out that powered-up Minotaur for Bell-kun to defeat. That insane goddess was watching in ecstasy as Bell-kun slashed that thing up as though tomorrow would never come for him.
The sad part is that he almost lost. Do you know what I want to see right now? A stats update that would put him in the same league as the sword princess. It would open so many doors. Sure, it would probably make him an overpowered character in no-time (which I would also love), but just image the possibilities… Bliss…Read More
Okay, I’ve seen this week’s episode of Knights of Sidonia. Not very eventful, huh? Quite frankly; there’s really only one thing that I want to discuss at this point. Good thing I traded Ore Monogatari’s post yesterday. I’m short on time now and I would’ve hated to cut Ore Monogatari’s post short.
I am completely going to skip over the part where Nagate and his girl found a place to live so their chimera friend can come to them without a problem. I just want to focus on the new weapon that has been built. It is a problematic situation because no one sees what’s coming yet. Everyone is still in the dark about those parasites.
The fired that weapon off and already it’s trying to do something. I don’t know if it’s looking for a hosts or if it’s looking for an energy supply, but something’s going down. And that captain is the worst now. She has changed completely. I don’t know if she, too, got infected by one of those things or if she’s always been that power-hungry, but she has to be stopped soon. Open your damn eyes already, Nagate!Read More
