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…

Seraph of the End episode 11

Well, a significant improvement over last week’s episode, but it was far more annoying. It was annoying episode because now it’s kind of hard for me to decide who to root for. I am starting to believe that the vampires might not be completely wrong here…

[Ohys-Raws] Owari no Seraph - 11 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_04.18_[2015.06.16_23.40.36]I’ll just get straight to it; Yu-chan lost control for a little bit when he saw his friends get killed and used as meat sacks. He started to turn into this badass guy with black wings. I liked that. But hey, it means that he isn’t really human and his ‘friends’ are to blame for that. They found him many years ago and they must’ve experimented on him without his permission. It’s the sort of thing that makes you want to start rooting for the vampires. I mean, they took a little boy and turned him into something else, and a now using him as a living weapon against their enemy. It’s really hard to accept that.

[Ohys-Raws] Owari no Seraph - 11 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_14.34_[2015.06.16_23.40.52]I’m kind of curious to see how he’ll deal with that knowledge. His demon also knew that there was something wrong and she seemed to know more about what’s going on. I’m sure he’ll be wanting to find out more about that. I will honestly be quite disappointed if he continues to fight the vampires when ordered as though nothing had happened.

But hey, another huge battle is at hand. A group of human warriors versus a couple of vampire nobles and their vampire lackeys. This should be fun. If that colonel was a flunkey then I’m kind of wondering how strong those other guys are. I’m looking forward to seeing that annoying vampire die and I hope that those two busty vampire babes survive (for obvious reasons).

Seraph of the End episode 10

You know, I am really in no mood to write a full Seraph of the End post this week. There has been quite a bit of action this week and yet the pace hasn’t picked up.  I mean; kid gets rescued from vampires, gets raised to become a fighter, obtains a cursed weapon but has not enough time to master it so is forced to swallow pills and now this…

[Ohys-Raws] Owari no Seraph - 10 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_20.11_[2015.06.08_23.51.55]It is odd. They killed off one of the best characters on the show by the looks of things. Mikaela killed that commander and now Yu-kun has pierced Mikaela because he thought it was just another evil vampire that killed his commander. We have only two episodes left and the story still isn’t making a whole lot of sense. The end isn’t even in sight yet.

I’ll just say this; I’ll be really disappointed if Mikaela survives that attack. He got pierced by a cursed weapon. That should turn him to dust just like any other vampire. It’ll become pretty bad if he’s the only vampire to have survived being pierced by such a weapon for some ridiculous reason (like he being special because he drinks that vampire girl’s blood or something). We’ll see…

Seraph of the End episode 09

Oh lord, thank you! Thank you so freakin’ much! I’m not saying that the pace has finally picked up, because it doesn’t seem like it has. I’m just happy that the motherload of all action has finally arrived. It’s about damn time.

[Ohys-Raws] Owari no Seraph - 09 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_04.05_[2015.06.01_23.06.11]So the war has finally started. The vampires have invaded the city in order to wipe out every human that wields a cursed weapon. Demons should only be wielded by vampires according to them. Nevertheless, I would like to focus on this whole “swallow-a-pill-to-temporarily-unlock-your-true-potential” nonsense. What the hell!? They have to swallow a pill in order to properly utilize their newly obtain powers. That’s a big slap in the face. You’d think that one slap would be enough, but no… Then they tell us that the effects only lasts for about ten to fifteen minutes. You cannot beat an entire vampire army within ten to fifteen minutes.

[Ohys-Raws] Owari no Seraph - 09 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_15.22_[2015.06.01_23.06.36]It’s all been a big setback, you know? They pumped up this whole black demon series so much, but then it turns out that the wielders are not much better than regular cursed weapon users. I haven’t seen anything special until now. Only that laidback commander seems to have quite the unique and powerful weapon.

Oh well, it matters not. Yu-kun is about to be reunited with undead family. Mikaela will probably turn his world upside down. I’m pretty sure that Yu-kun won’t be able to kill him. He’s too weak. In fact, I’m pretty sure that Mikaela would completely wreck him. He’s always been quite the strong boy. Time will tell…

Seraph of the End episode 08

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.

[Ohys-Raws] Owari no Seraph - 08 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_05.49_[2015.05.25_00.04.07]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.

[Ohys-Raws] Owari no Seraph - 08 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_16.32_[2015.05.25_00.04.21]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.

Seraph of the End episode 07

Well, I suppose this was a good episode? The pace is still sickeningly slow and I don’t think that’s going to get better any time soon, but at least we got to see some action this week. No more flashback scenes all the time.

[Ohys-Raws] Owari no Seraph - 07 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_09.10_[2015.05.18_23.51.53]So they finally went beyond their precious walls. They left the city to do a little bit of recon. Well, that’s fine. Kill a monster here and there, you know? But that’s when they come upon a trap set by vampires; a little girl being followed by a monster. So yeah, the boys couldn’t allow that girl to get killed by that monster when they had the power to prevent that. That loli girl, a new character that’s supposed to train them, warned them not to interfere as it was a trap, but they walked right into it anyway because they didn’t want to see the girl die.

[Ohys-Raws] Owari no Seraph - 07 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_15.23_[2015.05.18_23.52.00]Now comes the part that really disappointed me. Yes, those idiots fell into a vampire trap when they chose to save that girl. But that’s fine now. They have their brand new weapons and their new demon friends. They were up against a couple of low ranking vampires from what I could tell. None of them had demonic weapons so they, the boys, should have been able to defeat those vampires without it being too much of a problem. What happened? They started losing pretty badly and they even ended up retreating. I know they just got those weapons, but I am really disappointed by what I saw this week.

Seraph of the End episode 06

Oh my gawd. They took a whole episode last week that led to the boys reaching their new weapons. Now they took another whole episode just to show us the process of them actually obtaining those weapons. What the hell is up with this pace?

[Ohys-Raws] Owari no Seraph - 06 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_18.03_[2015.05.12_00.09.29]Three short posts in a row. Must be record. What a disappointing week. Yes, I seeing that girly boy lose control like that was pretty cool, but that was the highlight of this episode. We didn’t get to see any of the boys use their new-found powers. We were just shown stuff that we already knew or that most people wouldn’t even be interested in.

I cracked a smile when that commander told them that they were going to the front lines right away, but then I looked at the time and realized that the episode was already over. Was five or six minutes not enough for them to beat those demons at their own game and show us one or two moves on the frontlines for the rest of the episode? Come on… Pick up the pace already!

Seraph of the End episode 05

I am going to keep this episode short. I am honestly a bit disappointed by how slow the pace has gotten. Things were so lively and interesting, but now it’s like we’re being kept on a leash. Just hurry the hell up already.

[Ohys-Raws] Owari no Seraph - 05 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_03.40_[2015.05.04_23.31.13]I don’t want to watch those characters’ school lives. I don’t care about any of that. I’ve dealt with a few of those episodes now, so now it’s time to focus on what comes after that; a war between vampires and demon-wielding humans. I’m sure things will speed up a bit now that those three idiots are finally getting demonic weapons of their own.

But you know what seems rather unfair to me? Vampires are stronger, faster and most of the time smarter than humans (due them a lot of them being so old and therefor wiser). Their senses are superior in every way. Demonic weapons gave humanity a chance to fight against those vampires to even out the odds, but now vampires wield those weapons as well. It seems to me that the vampires have a huge advantage.
