Grisaia no Kajitsu episode 13

Okay, so they decided to focus on that girl after all. I suppose she got the lion share of attention amongst the girls, which is fine by me, seeing as she’s the interesting one amongst the girls. Do I still regret picking this show? Yes.

[HorribleSubs] Grisaia no Kajitsu - 13 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.59_[2014.12.30_23.48.42]Ending was pointless. She asked the protagonist’s help in order to get over her past, even though everyone could see that guy, that old teacher if I am not mistaken, coming from a mile away. Not one viewer that could’ve been surprised at that one. Subtlety is definitely no one of Grisaia no Kajitsu strong points.

But yeah, anyone could see this ending coming. The guy comes in, takes hostages, of which he takes a group of messed up and dangerous girls, and thinks everything is going to be alright. It doesn’t work that way. And the fact that this ending was so disappointing and predictable, I can only say that the producers are smart enough not to make a second season of this.

Grisaia no Kajitsu episode 12

Better, much better. Was this episode good enough to write at least 300 words about it? No. It was a lot better than the past few episodes and it really did something for the story, but it’s still far too predictable. Everybody probably already knows his this’ll end.

[HorribleSubs] Grisaia no Kajitsu - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.01_[2014.12.24_00.19.30]Okay, so things got extremely hectic when it turned out that Amane’s old teacher and student president were killing survivor after survivor for food and having sex all over the place. This was enough reason for Amane and her friend, whom ended up sacrificing her life so that Amane could escape, to try and run from those maniacs.

So Amane got scared for life and yet she still continues to pursue Yuuji, a young man of doubtful repute. It was an interesting story, I’ll admit that much, but it just opened to the door to a whole lot more questions. This story just does not make sense. At least this episode gave the show a decent and expected rating boost.

Grisaia no Kajitsu episode 11

So they are going to dedicate yet another episode to explore Amane’s past. Wonderful. They will probably end up using the final episode as a kind of group thing to show us what kind of harem Yuuji has built during these past few months.

[HorribleSubs] Grisaia no Kajitsu - 11 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.52_[2014.12.16_23.12.43]I found this episode rather difficult to watch. Not a lot of interesting stuff. It’s like I was watching a rerun. Every character has had a rough past and is trying to live life as normal as possible. We’ve seen all of it by now. So yeah, this, as heavy as it may be to some, did not surprise me at all. After all, we’ve seen this sort of thing plenty of times now on Grisaia no Kajitsu.

Yuuji will once again find a way to help Amane overcome her past. It’s just difficult to watch because it’s too much of the same thing (in general). They even threw in another dead dog, just like with Michiru. This story is just going round in circles. It’s like playing a game; every girls represents a level. They all have a problem and a demon that the hero must defeat. Definitely a visual novel adaption.

Grisaia no Kajitsu episode 10

I do not understand why Grisaia no Kajitsu got thirteen episodes and shows like Psycho-Pass 2 only got eleven. It is quite obvious to anyone that the latter obviously wins in story, artwork and overall popularity.

[HorribleSubs] Grisaia no Kajitsu - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.28_[2014.12.09_22.57.57]Life went back to normal for Yuuji and the rest. Amane, as predicted, steps into the spotlight this week and almost immediately becomes Yuuji’s girlfriend (kind of). This will probably take up next week’s episode as well, but after that we’re probably going to finish this by either focussing on Yuuji next or just a whole group thing.

Grisaia no Kajitsu has roughly a seven on a lot of anime databases. I think that’s too high. This show has been a huge disappointment. The show didn’t even start out strong, but it just looked overall promising. In the end nothing changed. The story is still as weak as it was when this first started. Truly my biggest regret this season.

Grisaia no Kajitsu episode 09

There was quite a lot of badass action in this episode, but I still find the story worthless. It is such a ridiculous and weak story that I find it very hard to write these posts. They are obviously unmotivated and shorter than usual.

[HorribleSubs] Grisaia no Kajitsu - 09 [720p].mkv_snapshot_06.11_[2014.12.02_23.22.45]It has become a pain to watch. This episode may have been a bit better because of all the action, but it still wasn’t good enough. To think that I would have to see Makina get shot like that… Damn! She really needs to listen when people tell her to stay put, especially when her mother has sent armed killers after her because of what she knows.

Still, this is going to be the same thing. We’ve had Michiru, Yumiko, Sachi and now Makina. Next is probably Amane’s turn to stand in the spotlight. I wouldn’t be surprised if they ended things by putting Yuuji in the spotlight as well. You don’t have a story just because you jam 6 broken teenagers into a school. This is pointless…

Grisaia no Kajitsu episode 08

Still not good enough. The story is just all over the place and things still don’t make sense. What can I expect from this? What is the point? Is there a goal that we need to keep in mind? I just don’t know. I’m getting tired of it.

[HorribleSubs] Grisaia no Kajitsu - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.42_[2014.11.25_22.23.21]Makina gets put in the spotlight once again. Yuuji already has her friendship in his pocket, so there was no point in focussing on that. To think that they would have her call him father, even though he is only a few years older at most, is just ridiculous. Let her call him Oni-chan or something. Don’t go overboard like this.

I’ll be honest. I was very tired when I watched this episode. There are some things that I did not get and other things that I did not care about. I know my Grisaia no Kajitsu posts have been rather negative lately due to lack of motivation. I would’ve been a lot more enthusiastic about this show if the story was even a little bit better.

Grisaia no Kajitsu episode 07

Although it was pretty much the same thing, I have to admit that this episode was a bit better than the last few. Maybe because it focussed on a more interesting character? I might actually regain some of my motivation if this keeps up.

[HorribleSubs] Grisaia no Kajitsu - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.44_[2014.11.18_23.06.03]So Sachi, arguably one of the most dangerous maids in the anime world, was jealous of the other girls because they got Yuuji’s attention. This pretty much changed her personality. She became unstable and, because she wanted to please everyone around her, accepted some of the most unreasonable requests from her friends.

I was actually happy when Yuuji said that those explosives were pretty well made for an amateur. I was so glad. The thought of her being a professional explosives expert does not sound great to me. I’m just glad that it all ended with a happy ending and that Yuuji has added yet another girl to his already ridiculous harem.

Grisaia no Kajitsu episode 06

This story is a complete mess. I already noticed that Grisaia no Kajitsu has been rapidly sinking in ratings. I guess there are a lot of other people that are getting fed up with it, like me. I should have known better than to pick a show that’s based on an erotic visual novel.

[HorribleSubs] Grisaia no Kajitsu - 06 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.09_[2014.11.11_23.13.54]You know, I hate to drop something half way. But even I make exceptions when things get as bad as this. I’ll just wait two more weeks and if the story doesn’t improve I’ll just stop writing about this. The story is a complete mess and I am starting to lose interest. This could’ve been so much better if it weren’t for such a pointless story.

I did not want to watch Yuuji waste his time by befriending the final student at that school. He finally won her over, even though she tried to kill him several times. And letting her father, the owner of that school, think that she is dead by faking her death is idiotic. What kind of stupid twist is that? There were plenty of other, better methods available for her to have her freedom. This was just bad.
