Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin episode 11

What a horrible ending. They are probably going to make a second season of this in the future, which is something they often do with disappointing shows, but no way am I going to write about it. I have been let down more than enough with this.

[HorribleSubs] Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin - 11 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.34_[2014.06.20_22.35.09]I thought it was going to be an interesting final episode. A big fight between Juugo and that Goth guy should seem quite promising, especially since Juugo seemed like he was about to die. Was it worth it? Hell no. They stopped fighting and everyone went on their way. For what? That treasure that we didn’t even get to see? What a pointless ending.

Juugo still has his issues, Nanana is still around and I find myself asking myself why I even watched this in the first place. Nothing happened during these past eleven episodes… It’s been searching for treasures that Juugo didn’t even get to keep. In the end he didn’t even get himself a girlfriend. Romance my ass. What a truly disappointing show.

Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin episode 10

Now I know I’m starting to lose interest in Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin. I actually started questioning the entire story. That’s when you know that you don’t actually enjoy it any longer. Oh well… Just a few more weeks…

[HorribleSubs] Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_06.19_[2014.06.13_23.42.14]The question that I kept asking myself is “why”? Why do people look for Nanana’s treasures? Obviously… To gain wealth, fame and/or power. But why doesn’t Nanana just tell everyone where they are hidden and how you can get to them? She herself said that she wants people to find them and use them… Why create all those traps if you want that? Why let people look for your killer when you yourself do nothing than play games and surf the internet? It’s stupid. She eats pudding, plays games and surfs the internet all day long, yet she doesn’t bother helping her friend(s) to find those treasures and her killer.

[HorribleSubs] Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.56_[2014.06.13_23.42.34]Also, don’t you think it’s about time that Tensai just admits that she has fallen for Juugo? Let’s face it… Her face turns red every time he gets close and she freaks out when he holds her. Juugo is just too stupid and inexperienced to notice, but come on… Just make it happen already. The show has already lost its spark, so a bit or romance would be nice right about now.

Do I still back that Goth guy? Yeah, I do. So what if he picked a fight with Juugo and his friends? They are all searching for the same thing. At least he doesn’t go around backstabbing people (anymore) like Juugo’s friends did. He fought all of them head-on without pulling any nasty tricks (I don’t using any one of his treasures is unfair. You use what you got). The fact that Juugo seems to be dying is irrelevant, but we’ll see about that next week.

Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin episode 09

Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin just keeps dropping… No sh*t. The story is just going nowhere and my expectations are at an all-time low. I’m not even waiting for it anymore. I just appears on my list and I think “hmm… Yeah… I’ll watch that later after I’ve seen Blade and Soul”. What a shame…

[HorribleSubs] Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin - 09 [720p].mkv_snapshot_06.23_[2014.06.06_23.45.21]I’m just getting annoyed because of this whole goth-guy business. Stop following him around already. This is getting ridiculous. Everybody is so worried about the things that he does or plans to do, and they don’t seem to realize that they are doing the exact same thing. They are all looking for Nanana’s treasures, too. Stop judging that guy just because he’s honest about it and knows a bit more about it than you do. I knew that it was going to become this annoying after since that guy showed up two weeks ago. Now look… They can’t stop talking about him.

[HorribleSubs] Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin - 09 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.59_[2014.06.06_23.45.35]Isshin, that four-eyed hypocrite, is by far the worst. He hates that guy because he once sacrificed and betrayed one of his club members to obtain one of the treasures. Come on… You four-eyed motherf*cker. How can you be that big a hypocrite? He actually did the same thing to Juugo and Tensai and now he’s b*tching about the other guy? The worst part is that Juugo says nothing about it…

Its stuff like that that just pisses me off to no end. The hypercriticism is at an all-time high and the interestingness is it an all-time low. How messed up is that!? Just find the treasures that you are looking for, help Nanana and confront your father, Juugo. Let’s just get this over and done with. It’s going to take one hell of an episode to motivate me to write better posts.

Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin episode 08

Okay, I’m not sure if adding a few new characters will make any difference, but I’m a big fan of that little girl. Her fear of men instantly reminded me of Inami from Working, which is another cute character that kept me quite entertained. I can only hope that “Yun”, one of the aforementioned new characters, will be half as entertaining.

[HorribleSubs] Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.17_[2014.05.30_23.07.44]I’m right away going to tackle that whole enemy issue. This Goth-like guy drops in and all hell breaks loose. The landlord is hauling ass because she claims that he owes her money (I honestly don’t agree, but I’ll get to that) and Nanana doesn’t seem to like him. He just barged in to acquire some information about a treasure that he’s found.

Now, I honestly think that the landlord and Nanana don’t have any right to complain. Let’s face it; the landlord scams people into living in that room without telling them it’s haunted. And Nanana couldn’t possibly complain because she’s an unwanted guest that doesn’t pay rent and just consumes every ounce of pudding that she comes across.

[HorribleSubs] Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.36_[2014.05.30_23.08.01]So yeah, nothing wrong with that guy in my book, but that’s just me. So what if he thinks that that bell was worthless? I honestly can’t disagree. I see some use for an item that can make it rain, but what’s wrong with calling it useless when it can’t grant any of your wishes? Is that so wrong? The guy is just hunting for something that’ll make him rich, famous and/or powerful. Maybe he has a different reason… Who knows? All I’m saying is that we know nothing about him, yet he’s already being portrayed as the bad guy here when I honestly think that he’s done nothing wrong. I probably would’ve abandoned Nanana, too. Nor would I have bothered to pay rent after I’ve been scammed like that.

Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin episode 07

Wow, Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin really has lost its charm. I can remember it very clearly that people rated this show with an eight average across many, many websites. It has dropped to a seven and a half at best now. I guess I’m not the only one…

[HorribleSubs] Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.30_[2014.05.23_23.25.53]There are two small things that I really liked about this episode and I am going to keep it short. First would have to be Juugo’s newfound balls (for lack of a better word) that he used to confront his childhood friend, Yukihime. It got quite emotional and dramatic, but it all turned out alright, although they’re clearly up to something that will probably cause Juugo a lot of grief later on.

I also couldn’t help but notice that Nanana has opened up a little bit. She’s a lot more friendly and cheerful towards Juugo now. She probably wants to be on his good side in case he ever thinks about finding another place or to motivate him to get money to keep paying his bills so he won’t evicted. Either way, I really like what I saw.

Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin episode 06

Writing two short posts on the same day is bound to make me seem demotivated. I can’t help it though. There’s simply very little I want to say about this mediocre episode. Not that I expected anything else at this point to be very honest.

[HorribleSubs] Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin - 06 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.00_[2014.05.16_23.29.18]I did not understand why Juugo and Tensai went on that trip with the same people that nearly killed them and used them to get their hands on that staff. I have not forgotten. It was an enormous slap in the face when they tried to do the exact same thing again. Too bad that someone else got in the way before they could strike again.

So we missed out on the opportunity to get rid of these characters for good. Too bad. Another character appeared to steal that stuffed animal even though it wasn’t actually one of Nanana’s treasures. When this episode ended I was left with one simple question: what the hell was the point of this? Seriously, not a single ounce of progress has been made here…

Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin episode 05

I really don’t want to write this post. Really I don’t. It annoyed me to no end. Had I known from the beginning that Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin would turn out this way then I would’ve seriously reconsidered writing about it.

[HorribleSubs] Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.28_[2014.05.09_23.35.29]Surely you all remember that annoying club president that betrayed Juugo and Tensai in order to get his clammy pawns on that staff. You probably also remember how he left those two there to die. A guy like that that uses people for his own benefit does not deserve to live freely. So what happens? They bring the guy back as an ally. He is back to where it all started; club president that will lead Tensai and Juugo on all sorts of journeys to find more of Nanana’s treasures. Why do I feel a few Deja Fu’s coming on? That guy will just end up making the same mistake again.

[HorribleSubs] Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.36_[2014.05.09_23.35.53]Sure, I don’t like the idea that he’s back in the picture or that it seems like it hasn’t even been punished for his crimes. Still, I’ll have to find a way to deal with him somehow. I just hope that Tensai continues to follow Juugo around because she probably has a crush on him. She probably doesn’t even realize it. She thinks she genuinely sees him as a rival.

Anyway, I’m looking forward to how this plays out. Juugo taking on jobs where meets all sorts of shady people… Yeah, sounds alright to me. It’s probably the quickest way to learn a bit more about the person that killed Nanana and to find more of those treasures. Isn’t that what it’s all about? Finding a killer and treasure? Let the good times roll…

Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin episode 04

I suppose I really shouldn’t be too surprised by this episode. I don’t believe in coincidences and good timing, so I really should’ve seen this one coming. The fact that I didn’t kind of annoys me. Maybe I’m ignorant or something?

[HorribleSubs] Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.47_[2014.05.02_23.43.43]I want to tackle this whole good or evil thing right away. It seems that Juugo was part of that group of thieves from the start. I did not see that coming for some reason, even though I did not fully believe that he found that stone by accident. That stuff just doesn’t happen. My alarm didn’t ring and I couldn’t connect the dots at the time. I just thought that he was this easy-going guy that gets dragged into awkward situations. Now it turns out that he has been doing this willingly all along. I’m even starting to wonder if he was really surprised when he first saw Nanana. That character has just become incredibly fake…

[HorribleSubs] Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.44_[2014.05.02_23.44.06]Tensai-chan is still my favourite. I really can’t seem to like Nanana for some reason. That bossy personality, her laziness and her way of communicating with people kind of annoys me. People are looking for the person that killed her, yet she sits around all day playing videogames and watching TV and whatnot. That’s just annoying as hell.

What can I expect here? How can I trust even a word that comes out of Juugo’s mouth from now on? Have we even met the real Juugo? It’s kind of a pain in the ass when one of the main characters turns out to be the complete opposite of what imagined. That guy is one hell of a liar… It makes me wonder why he’s still a virgin when he’s that skilled in lying.
