DanMachi episode 13

Yeah, I suppose I do find this ending rather good. It may have been a little rushes and not all questions were answered, but I suppose it’s because I wanted to see a lot more of DanMachi. It saddens me that it’s already over.

[HorribleSubs] DanMachi - 13 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.29_[2015.06.28_23.40.00]DanMachi truly was this season’s underdog. Many people thought that it was another dirty anime when they saw that busty loli Hestia and thought that it was going to be more fan service than anything else. Things soon changed after only a couple of episodes. People came around and saw DanMachi for was it truly was; a great show.

I’m not sure if there’s ever going to be a sequel. I haven’t heard anything yet. Not even an item about the possibility of a sequel. That’s why I’m kind of satisfied with this ending as it had everything you could wish for; a badass boss, a huge fight and a happy ending. That finishes things pretty nicely if you compare it to the endings of other shows.

[HorribleSubs] DanMachi - 13 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.00_[2015.06.28_23.40.24]I knew that Bell-kun’s latest skill would be the key to him defeating that boss. His attack being amplified like that allowed him to slay that boss before it could destroy them all. That’s all very cool and impressive that Bell-kun managed to rise to the occasion, but I still think that it could’ve been avoided if Hestia hadn’t used her divine powers after Bell-kun had already won the day (so to speak). It seems kind of pointless if you think about it. Bell and his friends were safe and so was she, so there was no point in having her interfere. I wonder if that happened in the manga as well or if it was just their way of ending the show. Either way; I am pleased. I’m glad I watched this show and that I wrote about it.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 417

This is just the worst… They are really ruining the show. Their desire to milk this show as much as possible is really getting out of hand. I mean, five months of fillers and we get one or two good episodes. Now we get 2 more fillers and 1 week break in between. That’s ridiculous.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 417 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.14_[2015.06.26_23.39.58]I cannot believe that I’m still watching this. Hell, I cannot believe that I still dedicate precious time to write about Naruto Shippuuden even though they are ruining it. I must’ve been a true fool to think that the fillers would’ve been over and done with after five months of waiting. It will never be over. As long as they can make some money off of it they will continue to make and air nonsense episodes in order to drag things out as much as possible. Probably just so that the spin-off manga, a story where are favourite characters are all adults and have families of their own, gets ahead so that it can be green-lit for animation as well.

Ore Monogatari!! episode 12

Thank you! Thank you so much! I have been waiting for an episode like this for weeks now! Ah~ this episode was pure bliss. The best part was that I didn’t even see it coming. It came as a pleasant surprise, which is great.

[HorribleSubs] Ore Monogatari!! - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.49_[2015.06.25_23.35.24]I mean, this episode started out with Takeo’s constant domination in sports. His physique allows him to do incredible things, especially when you compare him to other guys his age. He just dominates at almost everything he does. He even got scouted when he went ice-skating. But hey, Takeo’s straight, so there’s no way in hell that he’d ever become a professional ice-skater. Can you honestly see that gorilla on the ice doing pirouettes with some chick? Come on… That guy belongs in a ring or a field. Basically; somewhere where he can destroy other people.

[HorribleSubs] Ore Monogatari!! - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_11.52_[2015.06.25_23.35.38]But I digress. The guy needs to start studying if he wants to go to the same college as his girlfriend. She wants to go to the same school as him and vice versa. They currently go to different schools, both they are both working hard to change that. This was basically one big set-up for what came next, for which I am still truly grateful.

So yeah, that whole study thing was one big setup to get Rinko to visit Takeo’s home. She came to study and the way Takeo’s parents reacted was priceless. They wouldn’t leave her alone. His mother cleaned the entire house and bought all new stuff and his father just kept asking question after question. It was hilarious. I can’t wait to see how Rinko’s parents will react. Probably not as positive.

Sidonia no Kishi 2 episode 11

Knights of Sidonia is really stagnating right now. The insane predictability is killing most of the joy you get from watching. There were one or two scenes that were to my liking, but the rest was something that anyone could’ve foreseen.

[Leopard-Raws] Sidonia no Kishi - Daikyuu Wakusei Seneki - 11 RAW (TBS 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_22.13_[2015.06.24_23.25.12]So Nagate decided to save his friends and try out his improved mech to the max. Well, that’s nice. Watching him blast away all those Gauna was interesting and pretty entertaining. But that’s all that really mattered. They achieved what they came for; their friends. They seem to be okay so all that’s left is to leave that planet.

But yeah, that red Gauna was preventing them from leaving. Every time she seemed to be defeated when she pulled a fast one in order to survive. She did it in season one and she’s doing it now in season two. She may have infected Nagate’s mech now and she’ll probably escape again next week. This loop will continue.

Kekkai Sensen episode 11

Well, I am happy that they didn’t waste an actual episode on those recaps last week, but I feel as though this episode could’ve been like that as well. I’m not saying it was an uninteresting episode, but it was about a character that doesn’t really interest me personally.

[Ohys-Raws] Kekkai Sensen - 11 (MBS 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_00.04_[2015.06.23_23.13.05]More than half of this week’s episode was dedicated to that girl and her brother. We were shown how they grew up, what hardships they faced together and how they came to be the individuals that they are today. That’s all nice, but I feel as though they’ve spent too much time on those two characters this week. Some of it wasn’t even necessary.

Anyhow, the last six or so minutes were really about Leonardo getting his ass handed to him by that blood brood brat. I’m not sure how things will go from here on out, but he needs Leonardo’s eyes to complete whatever ritual he’s trying to complete. Klaus and his men need to show up fast in order to help their friend and save the world once again.

Seraph of the End episode 12

Really obvious that there was going to be another season. Nothing had ended and there are simply too many questions left to be answered. I must say; I did enjoy the season overall, but I did betray my expectations. I expected more.

[Ohys-Raws] Owari no Seraph - 12 END (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_03.33_[2015.06.22_23.24.35]So Yu was hospitalized after he lost control like that. Rather, he didn’t really lose control. He was made to close control by that colonel of his. He was given “special” pills that would trigger his inhuman side and made it seem as though he had lost control. The guy had no choice. Now I understand why that demon of his was so puzzled when he tried to tame her. I’m really curious to see how she will deal with this and he, too, will deal with this situation. I hope he finds out quickly so that things don’t get dragged out again. It’s predictable enough as it is.

[Ohys-Raws] Owari no Seraph - 12 END (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_14.08_[2015.06.22_23.24.57]You know, the biggest problem in Seraph of the End is the pace. I have said it a thousand times before; it’s too damn slow. There’s hardly and progress and when there’s finally progress things tend to become predictable. They really need to work on that. I haven’t read the manga at all, but I refuse to believe that the manga is this slow-paced.

Anyway, Yu’s secret admirer will do her best to find out more about his current predicament. They experimented on Yu when they found him and now there’s something inside him that could very well wipe out the entire city. So many questions come up… Do the rest of the commanders know? Will Yu remain loyal? Will that demon remain loyal? We sure know that Colonel isn’t. Not to humanity. So many questions that need to be answered this October…

DanMachi episode 12

Another great episode. It’s truly a darn shame that I have to keep this post short because it definitely deserves better. Unfortunately, I think I’ve come down with the flu. I’m cold and can’t stop shaking. I just want to write and plan this post and dive straight into bed.

[HorribleSubs] DanMachi - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.12_[2015.06.21_23.25.13]So Bell-kun ended up being tested once again. His insane progress has caught the eyes of many people, including the divine, so it came as no surprise when that god, Hermes, decided to test his skills. I’m pretty sure Bell passed when he defeated that guy after he realized how to do it. But hey, that’s not what’s important here.

Hestia made it known who she was and it caught the attention of others. She’s not allowed to be in the dungeon and she knows that. She will have to face the consequences. It’s a damn shame, too, because Bell-kun didn’t even need any help. He had already won when she popped up. I guess the final episode is going to be quite eventful.

Assassination Classroom episode 22

I’m sorry to say this, but I found this to be quite the weak season finale. I don’t even want to dedicated too much of my time by writing a big post about this episode. I simply expected a whole lot more from this and I’ll tell you why.

[Leopard-Raws] Ansatsu Kyoushitsu - 22 END (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_05.49_[2015.06.20_23.39.03]First off; Koro-sensei, as expected, escaped and was just fine in the end. We all saw it coming and we accepted it a long time ago. But what I simply cannot accept is that those students were never in any real danger, making the last few episodes pretty pointless. It just makes it very hard to takes things serious.

What also pissed me off is how nobody wanted to see Nagisa end up as a killer. I mean, he is being trained as an assassin… What do you think he’ll do after that long road? Become a florist? Assassins assassinate people. That’s their purpose. They kill. You train those brats to become perfect killing machines but you’re not allowing them to kill? It renders the entire story quite pointless. I hope the second season will make up for that.
