Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon episode 13

Alright, some bad stuff has happened but that is no excuse to give up or stop writing. This blog will live on! I’ll write yet another post later on about what happened and where to go from here on out.

I’ll keep this post short this time, because I have a lot of things to do on this site now.

The show ‘s final episode starts as Horizon finally starts to cooperate. She was very stubborn at first, but she finally started to come around. Toori still hasn’t changed though, he’s still the same old idiot.

An all-out war broke out between the two nations and it led to destruction and mayhem. It didn’t take long, Toori and Horizon unleashed some sort of power, destroying the enemy ship. It was pretty awesome, but it also looked a bit like an anti-climax, I’m not sure.

Things quickly returned to normal as the peace was restored. It sure as hell didn’t last long though. An army of six “demons” showed up, but we don’t know what for. We don’t know who they are, where they come from or what they came to do.

This pretty much ended the episode, but, as you all probably know, this was only the first season. There will be yet another season of Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon. I won’t lie; I honestly did not know that this show was doing that good.

Anyway, it was amusing to watch. I don’t recommend this show to those who enjoy a serious story, but if you like comedies with a lot of action? Go for it!

Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon episode 12

Alright. I’ll quickly write something about this new episode. It amazes me that Hatena, the group behind the subs, can sub this quickly. I wouldn’t go about saying that Hatena is a pretty known group, because they’re really not, but that’s alright. Their subs are pretty accurate, isn’t that what counts?

The fighting and pointless chatter still continues as we start the episode. Futayo is now up against Muneshige, a man known for his incredible speed. These two were pretty well matched against one another, but Muneshige had trouble keeping up with Futayo’s speed. I don’t know whether or not it’s because of the wounds he obtained during his fight a few episodes back, or that his speed is simply lacking, but he lost against Futayo in speed, and thus the whole match.

The war is still raging on as time is running out. Toori decided to go have a chat with Horizon, but it didn’t go quite smoothly. Horizon is completely emotionless as the keeps denying Toori’s advances. She claims to have reached a decision. But Toori had one of his very own, as he decided to hunt down all the Deadly Sin Armaments in order to restore Horizon’s emotions, as they were once part of her.

Later followed a long and very pointless debate on how much the two disagreed with one another. It was so tiring to watch, I really want to go to bed right now. But! Things started picking up when Horizon became more compliant to Toori’s requests. This became a problem for Innocentius, so he decided to step in before it something bad happened. He ordered all of his men to attack, hoping it would stop Toori from freeing Horizon.

Toori, in all the excitement, ended up touching Horizon’s breast through that magic wall. Everything that touches that magic wall supposedly dies. Needless to say that Toori, as well as Horizon, because Toori touched her breasts as well as that wall, was sent to another world to relive a certain moment in their past. It was a touching moment and the two finally decided to work together on saving one another.

Not only did the two escape death, but it also seems like they’re finally together. I’m happy for Toori, I really am, he’s an idiot, but even idiots deserve happiness. I’m rather curious about next week’s episode, I doubt that Innocentius is going to take it sitting down, he probably still has an trick or two up his sleeve.

Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon episode 11

Bleh, today is just downright awful. My work is all done, yet I’m still stuck here to fulfill my working hours. It’s all good though! Today I’m picking up my new laptop after work, I’ll be sure to post something about that too.

I decided to watch my share of anime here because, well… There’s nothing really much else I can do right now. I must say that this episode was pretty good, there was a lot of action, humor and, well… A lot of other things I rather not discuss.

Innocentius finally stood up to do something about the latest developments himself. He’s not the type of man that fights one on one, which is why he brought along Galileo, his army and his weapon, supposedly a Deadly Sin Armament that governs Lust, also known as “The Embodiment of Lust.”

That weapon has no offensive powers, but it does have the ability to form a sphere that envelops 3 kilometers in every direction, stripping every weapon in its radius from its strength.  So basically; all weapons are useless when inside the sphere, including muscle power.

This is where the weirdness bar got raised to a whole new level. It seems that power, or money as some would call it, got transferred to Toori, and through him to all the soldiers on the battlefield. The fight rages on as all the soldiers make use of this defensive blessing. But it doesn’t all smell of roses, there’s a minor glitch in this plan. You see, this power requires some standards. He who uses this power, in this care Toori, must remain ‘happy’ at all times.  The offering would fail if he were to feel in the slightest bit of sadness, resulting in his untimely demise.

It finally happened though! Innocentius has finally been challenged to a one on one by none other than Masazumi. What amazes me is not that he got challenged, after all; he had it coming. Was amazes me is that was actually man enough to accept.

Everyone is now engaging in their own private battle and, not that it really matters, yet there’s still no end in sight. Until now I always that that Galileo wasn’t that much of a threat, he didn’t seem that strong because his power rely on Ptolemaic and Copernican theories as abilities. He did put up a fair fight though, but in the end the result was still the same, he ended up losing due to his overconfidence.

The episode’s ending was really weird, so I can’t make much of that. What’s clear is that the next episode should be fairly conclusive, but I’m merely basing this on the fact that the show has two episodes left. Key characters are now engaging in battle, two of which have been defeated, so the next episode should do it.

Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon episode 10

We once again enter a world where social status and money means everything. I would like to point out that I lol’d at two similar E-mails where people asked me to drop this show and start writing about Mirai Nikki. I won’t, I don’t think Mirai Nikki is worth writing about, as the entire show revolves around people slaughtering one another.

The battle for Horizon finally has finally begun. Toori really got in the way this time, I wonder why he even participated to begin with. Why not remain behind to shout out tactics? He has the brains, or at least I’d like to think so. Instead he was rushing forward on the frontline, not fighting though, he was merely getting in the way of the other soldiers.

I noticed several things about those battles. First one would be that the characters, or at least those random soldiers, actually die when they get shot. I was under the impression that this show was more of a gag anime, so I didn’t expect anyone to die. I know that sounds a bit weird, but come on, how many of you could see some of the characters die in this anime?

The second thing that caught my eye is that every attack costs money. Every attack costs money, and the more money you pay, the stronger the attack gets. I’m not saying I’m surprised by this, because I’m not, after all; this anime revolves around that stuff. I’m just saying that it’s strange, how do they convert money in to physical power?

I would like to put the fight between that “War God” and those two “TechnoHexen” in the spotlight here. That was pretty fun to watch, especially when Margot used that roll of coins to use that super attack. Want to know how you can easily recognize a good battle? That’s easy! After each battle there’s a reward for the victor, in this case; a mild dose of lesbianism, hooray! That’s why I won’t drop this for Mirrai Nikki, who would give up on scenes like these, just to watch people getting killed?

All kidding aside; I hope they’re going to end this show properly. This anime, unlike Maji de Watashi ni Koi Shinasai, still has the time to finish with a great ending. I can’t wait to see it!

Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon episode 09

We once again dive into a world where politics are as weird as any local “blue bar.”  They somehow managed to raise the weirdness level even higher as their debate. It’s still as amusing as ever though, despite all the weird things that go on in this anime.

The story continues as Galileo stands firm against Futayo. If it weren’t for the interference of the King and Queen then the fight would’ve continued. But this peace was only short lived as the battle rages on. It was a tie, so another battle had to take place. Kimi, Toori’s older sister, decided to step up and help out.

Kimi’s way of fighting is just too weird. I must say; could they have made her breasts any bigger? My god. Kimi uses that voluptuous body as a weapon by dancing and singing in an erotic way. It seems that by doing that she becomes almost untouchable, yes, almost. We mustn’t take Futayo lightly though, she has the speed and power capable of penetrating Kimi’s defenses.

It actually got to a point where Futayo’s attacks no longer worked. Kimi actually slapped her and gave her advice on how to fight. This pretty much ended the fight, resulting in another win for the school.

Toori and Horizon, after Kimi won the battle, got appointed as the King’s assistants, both with their own special privilege.  Innocentius was shocked and didn’t like it at all, he tried to stop it by getting hostile. It’s a good thing that the students pay attention, they managed to find a loophole in the law that temporarily restricts Innocentius from making any judgment on the matter.

Toori now goes on yet another quest for world peace, and to bring back Horizon, of course. People now actually recognize him as a King. Who would’ve known? He almost became the King of Musashi when Kimi won the battle, unfortunately Yoshinao had no intention of stepping down as the king, which is why he appointed Toori and Horizon as his assistants.

It’s getting very interesting now as they all set out on another quest. The anime, by my count, has four episodes left, so I hope that they don’t rush the end.

Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon episode 08

Here we go again. Warning! Are you full of bullshit? Do you want to run your country into chaos? Are you mentally instable and quite the pervert? Then you must be a (future) politician! If so; do not watch this anime, you might actually learn something, clearly there isn’t enough room for good politicians.

The episode continues with that debate about what’s going to happen next between the nations. Toori is bound to be a genius, seriously, he led Masazumi straight into his trap by getting her to fight for Horizon. She came up with good arguments, so good that Innocentius had to step in personally. He came up with decent arguments, at first, but he started getting desperate. He involved Masazumi’s past into the argument, about how she used to be a girl, and not a girl who’s breasts had been removed so she could pass as a boy.

The concept of a good argument is quite vague, I agree. I believe that good arguments must all be valid, strong and backed up with proper information.  The premise of a good argument is not to “beg” for an answer or question, and it must be plausible and relevant to the conclusion. So basically Innocentius’ arguments were weak, which is why he decided to drop the standard to a new low by bringing up Masazumi’s past. It’s a sign of desperation, insecurity and defeat.

The reason for Horizon’s captivity did come to light though, which was very helpful. It seems that within Horizon lies a Deadly Sin Armament, also known as The Leviathan, a weapon that has the ability to control all other Deadly Sin Armaments. It sure explains why people would want it. It seems a bit like Lord of the Rings, doesn’t it? Kind of “one ring to rule them all”-ish if you ask me.

Masazumi’s past may have been revealed by Innocentius, but Toori and the others are still standing right beside her. The debate ended soon after that, when suddenly Galileo appeared and a battle broke loose. It may seem strange, but those politics aren’t much different from ours. If countries cannot settle things rationally then they simply settle it by going to war.

I just wonder how strong Galileo is, because Galileo is an Archdevil that used Ptolemaic and Copernican theories as abilities. How strong could he possibly be? I can’t believe it, but I’m actually looking forward to next week’s episode!

Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon episode 07

Yet another week later with yet another new episode of Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon. I’m glad that someone took time out of his/her life to explain the situation to me, if ‘JustAnotherVillain’ hadn’t commented on my previous Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon post, I’d probably still be wondering what was going on. Goes to show how important the first episode is. I for one couldn’t enjoy it, as the first episode’s subtitles, released by “HorribleSubs”, were incomplete. The episode only had about three minutes worth of subtitles in it, making it difficult for me to follow the story.

I just finished watching this episode and I have to say that a lot things make sense now. I also opened my eyes and saw how weak Toori is. It’s strange how mere students can represent nations, especially since they have the ability, from what I understood, to start a war as well as keep the peace. We all know Toori, the class comedian and also their class president. I don’t think he’s as weak as he makes himself out to be, all of his matchups have been going according to plan, which would be a clear sign of a great tactician. There’s more to power than just physical strength, after all; the brain is the body’s most powerful tool. So I’ll ask again, despite his nonexistent physical strength, just how strong is Toori really? I refuse to believe that someone that weak could have that many people following him.

What troubles me is that nobody is going after Innocentius. I know that he’s very powerful all over the globe, but that shouldn’t stop people from doing what they need to do. I know that I’m still putting the pieces together, but I’m sure you can all agree that it’s strange. He claims to have no interest in any of the students, he claims that it will all go according to his plan, despite all the choices the students make. But he looked very surprised when Toori said that it was pointless to go and rescue Horizon. Like I said; I’m pretty confident that the winning side is whoever has Horizon in their possession.

Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon episode 06

Oops, I think I forgot to write something about last week’s episode. Sorry about that, I’ve been very busy lately. It’s getting late now too, I was waiting for this week’s Nurarihyon no Mago Sennen Makyou episode but it still hasn’t arrived yet, that’s odd, it should’ve been here by now.

Right now there’s some sort of war going on. My guess is that whoever has Horizon has also the best chance of winning.  There’s something special about Horizon, and I don’t mean that in the traditional sense of the word. During my wait for the new Nurarihyon episode I’ve been thinking up all sorts of scenarios involving Horizon, each one more ridiculous than the next.  Frankly; I hope I’m wrong about all of them.

Toori has been down ever since Horizon vanished from his life. He has been gloomy all over the place, sulking in class all day and his classmates finally decided to do something about it. They wrote some sort of essay about what should happen from thereon out. It took the shyest girl of them all to finally break through to him. Toori was revived, especially after having a go at hear little breasts. He actually wanted to fondle them again, and he would have if his other classmates kept quiet.

What’s more confusing is that little conflict involving Muneshige, who had gotten hurt during the last episode, and that rare weapon. He gave it back after she, for some reason, charged at him. She has the weapon now, does that mean that there’s a temporary truce going on between the two nations? It’s all very confusing.

What confused me most of all is that Toori and his class actually plan on participating in the upcoming conflict. They are going to need a vast amount of money to accomplish their little plan. My question is; what can one class of students do when it comes to international conflict? And how strong is Toori? I have never seen him fight once, I’ve only seen him mess around with people. He is the class president, so that must mean he has some strength. After all; the stronger you are in this world, the more important you are, and that will reflect upon one’s function.
