Akame ga Kill! episode 16

This episode was shocking, a little disappointing and quite frankly a little bit annoying. It just pissed me off to no end. Let’s just say that this wasn’t the episode that I had hoped for and that the ending that I am hoping for won’t happen either.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 16 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.26_[2014.10.20_23.40.36]Quite a few things became clear to me. For one; Bolls is going to die. I am certain of that. Kurome is not. I can tell that much just by watching the first few minutes of this episode. She will survive this ordeal. The way this usually works is that the enemy loses at least one member and the good guys too. My guess is that Chelsea’s going to die. They focussed way too much on her habit to remain in the shadows, but she broke that habit because of her feelings for Tatsumi. Either Bolls will kill her or Kurome, but she is definitely going to die within the next few episodes.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 16 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.26_[2014.10.20_23.40.59]I have been hoping that Kurome would die. Her power is ridiculous, unfair and immoral. But that’s not why I wanted her dead the most. That has passed. The reason why I want her dead right now is because she chopped off one of Leone’s arms. How dare she do that the one of the show’s most lovable characters!? She really deserves as painful death.

I am also disappointed to see Najenda fight. She is nothing special. She only has abnormal strength and that annoying robot arm. Other than that she’s nowhere near Esdeath’s level. I bet that Susanoo, whose new battle mode I absolutely love by the way, would be able to defeat her in a one on one battle. Definitely not worth the wait.

Mushishi Zoku Shou 2

Hell yeah! I am so glad that there’s yet another season. I find the Mushishi series strangely relaxing. I fire up an episode and watch how Ginko travels that world of his in search of strange phenomena. Very relaxing indeed.

Mushishi Zoku Shou 2The artwork is still as great as ever. It looks so good and it’s incredibly detailed. The style itself is brilliant and I am pretty sure that anyone in his/her right mind wouldn’t change a thing about it. It’s too damn good to change.

I don’t think I need to say anything about the story either. There are very few people out there that don’t know about the Mushishi series. It has become quit famous over the past few years.

I do recommend this. Watch the previous series if you haven’t already. I promise you that its time well spent.

Plot Summary: Mushi; the life-blood of nature. They exist everywhere in various forms: micro-organisms, fungi, bodies of water. Sometimes, they’re even mistaken to be plants, animals, or spirits. But regardless of their appearance, they exist, nonetheless, living the only way they know how. At times, their actions can cause strange or unexplainable phenomena. Enter Ginko, the Mushishi (mushi master), as he continues encountering, studying, and dealing with the mysterious mushi along his journey into the unknown.

Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru

I must say that I was quite interested at first. That girl in the wheelchair, which is something that you don’t see often in anime, really caught my attention. I thought that I had found something really good. Yeah… I thought that.

Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de AruAs I started watching I noticed that the quality of the artwork was rather lacking a bit. It looks very nice and all, but it’s not very detailed. It could just be the episode that I downloaded though.

Now then, the story is probably why I found myself to be a little bit disappointed. You expect one thing and suddenly you get something entirely different. I found myself bored and a little bit irritated by the time I finished watching.

I saw that this show was categorized as a slice of life anime. Yeah, no… I doubt it. Mahou Shoujo-like anime don’t deserve that tag. It’s ridiculous. You decide for yourselves, but I won’t be watching this.

Plot Summary: The story takes place in the era of the gods, year 300. Yuuna Yuuki lives an ordinary life as a second year middle school student, but she’s also a member of the “Hero Club,” where club activities involve dealing with a mysterious being called “Vertex.”

Sword Art Online 2 episode 15

Hmm… I am having a hard time figuring out the rest of the story at this point. The enemy, the Death Gun gang, has been defeated for as far as we know. I haven’t forgotten about that threat, but really… What can I expect at this point?

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 15 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.23_[2014.10.19_23.21.11]Quite a weird turn of events. Kazuto has his account back in the land of fairies and decided to team up with his friends in order to go out on a quest to recover the famous sword Excalibur. I had no idea that swapping accounts from game to game was that easy. In fact, I never even thought that going on quests like that was that easy. Shino is completely new to the game and doesn’t even have the right equipment from what I could tell. How is it that she is going on that quest when she’s a noob? The MMORPG’s that I’ve ever played were never that easy.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 15 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.51_[2014.10.19_23.21.40]So the group set off on a flying elephant (don’t ask) in order to find that sword, an item that no player has found yet. It makes me think about the competition that they have. Many players are out there trying to find that sword and I am sure that quite a few of them are player killers or PK’ers for short. I very doubt that they are the “new enemy”.

I am putting my money on that strange NPC. She was doing something that she normally doesn’t do. She only did it do Kazuto’s party, too, and I just don’t believe in coincidences like that. Either she or the person controlling her will be latest enemy, I’m sure.

Sanzoku no Musume Ronja

This could’ve been something really good. It really could have been. I am just really disappointed in the artwork.

Sanzoku no Musume RonjaThe artwork itself looks good. I like that oldskool style. That being said, the characters ruin everything. It looks ridiculous. It looks like they were aiming for 2.5D characters and stopped halfway. The sceneries look very nice, but those 2.25D characters just don’t fit in.

The story might good. Good enough for me to ignore the lacking artwork? No. Not at all.

I cannot recommend this. The artwork is completely ruined because of those characters and the story isn’t nearly good enough to make up for that flaw. I won’t be watching this and I see no reason for you to either.

Plot Summary: Ronja is the only daughter of Mattis, a bandit leader who lives in a castle in the middle of a large forest. When Ronja grows old enough, she ventures into the forest to interact the strange and magical creatures that live there. She learns to live in the forest through her own strength, with the occasional rescue from her parents. Ronja’s life begins to change, however, when she happens upon a boy her own age named Birk.
