Dungeon ni Deai o Motomeru no wa Machigatte Iru no Darou ka? anime green-lit

Voice actor Yoshitsugu Matsuoka (Sword Art Online’s Kirito, The IDOLM@STER’s Shota) announced during a new anime project unveiling held over a Niconico Live broadcast that a television anime adaptation of Fujino Ōmori’s Dungeon ni Deai o Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru no Darō ka? (Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?) light novel series is in production. The anime will star Matsuoka as the protagonist Bell Cranel,, while Inori Minase and Saori Ōnishi will star as Hestia and Eyes Warenstein, respectively. Maaya Uchida will also star as Ririruka Ahde.
The anime is the first part of a number of projects being planned in celebration of the GA Bunko imprint.

Yoshiki Yamakawa (Hatsukoi Limited, Little Busters!) will direct the anime at J.C. Staff (A Certain Magical Index, Little Busters!) from series composition by Hideki Shirane (Date A Live, Bottle Fairy). Shigeki Kimoto (Sky Girls sub character design) is designing the characters for the anime, and GENCO will produce the series.

The story takes place in the town of labyrinths, Orario, also called “Dungeon.” Bell Cranel is a newbie adventurer that admires “Having a fateful meeting with a person of the opposite gender.” One day during an adventure, he is attacked by a Minotaur. Close to destruction, he is saved by a top-class female adventurer, Eyes Warenstein. He falls in love with her at first sight, and begins actions to become an adventurer that is on her level. He later encounters Hestia, a god called a “Lolita god” due to her stature who falls in love with him.

Omori began the novel under SB Creative’s GA Bunko imprint in 2013. The novel won the grand prize in the fourth GA Bunko Awards. The series has sold over 500,000 copies, and the novel has inspired three different manga series. Yen Press has licensed the novel series for English release in North America, and will release the first volume in December.

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso episode 03

I think this episode basically just answered every single one of my questions. That is quite impressive. Normally I’d have to wait a few weeks before my questions get answered one by one. God bless Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso.

[HorribleSubs] Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.26_[2014.10.24_22.48.58]So Kaori, as I pretty much already expected, knew exactly whom Kousei was. It seems that he is too much of a celebrity to remain unknown for long. Not only does she know about him, she actually wants him to become her accompanist. That is beyond straightforward. I still remember her getting freaked out when she thought that he was making a picture of her panties, which, of course, was not the case. I can also clearly remember how she went nuts for Ryouta and asked Tsubaki to introduce them to one another. Now it’s all heading in a completely different direction.

[HorribleSubs] Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.33_[2014.10.24_22.49.46]It surprised me even more when Tsubaki and Ryouta supported Kaori in her quest to drag Kousei behind a piano again. That I definitely like! If he is indeed a truly talented pianist that is destined to make great music, why not? Let them stalk him as much as they think is necessary if it were to help him play again. Go nuts!

Now then, let’s see if I can predict what is going to happen in the future. It is my guess that Kaori and Kousei really will fall for each other. It is also my guess that Ryouta and Tsubaki may become an item. I doubt that that Tsubaki’s flame will still burn strongly when she finds out that Kousei has a thing for Kaori. Rough times are ahead…

Psycho-Pass 2 episode 03

Our eventful adventure continues and I already noticed certain things that basically take away the element of unpredictability. I don’t like that. Psycho-pass has always been rather unpredictable due to its twists.

[Ohys-Raws] Psycho-Pass 2 - 03 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_01.40_[2014.10.24_22.50.05]Anyway, I cannot deal with this enemy. The guy is a nut job. The last one had a clear idea of what was wrong and was going about it the “right way”. This guy just cuts people open, removes body parts and manipulates them. He is truly worthy of the title of monster. He just shines a whole new light on the concept of insanity.

I’m also not a big fan of inspector Risa. She may seem like a badass at times, but she breaks quite easily. She thinks that she feels comfortable whenever she’s holding a dominator, one of those badass guns. I honestly couldn’t care less about her and wouldn’t mind at all if she were to never enter the spotlight ever again.

[Ohys-Raws] Psycho-Pass 2 - 03 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_12.14_[2014.10.24_22.50.27]I was kind of surprised to see how people reacted to inspector Akane’s report. They all think she’s slowly losing her mind and wrote that message on her own wall herself. There are no logs of anyone entering her home and doing that to her wall, and it seems that the owner is the only one that can avoid getting logged. It even escalated to the point where she went to see a criminal in a high security facility for advice. It seems that she trusts his judgement and thinks that he might be able to help her find out what’s happening right now. I guess the sh*t’s about to hit the fan.

Parasyte episode 03

Another eventful Parasyte episode. I must say that this one really got me thinking about what to expect from Parasyte. Quite frankly, I am not sure that I like what I’m seeing here. This episode was quite worrying if you stop to think about it.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.52_[2014.10.23_23.18.16]So a couple of parasites joined the big picture. I thought that Shinichi, having gained a little bit of power through that parasitic friend of his, would’ve become a parasite hunter and exterminated all of them. I kept in mind the fact that Migi merely wants to survive and prefers to avoid any and all conflict with other parasites if he can. This puts Shinichi, who wants to kill all human-eating parasites, in a very weird place, especially now that he has to deal with two of them, one of which may be more intelligent and experience than him and Migi.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.23_[2014.10.23_23.18.51]Okay, so let’s talk about this “A” guy. He is not on that woman’s level yet, but he poses an immediate threat now that he’s standing face to face with Shinichi. Will he win though? Probably not. I’d be amazed if Shinichi and Migi ended up victorious again without even a scratch on ‘em. I’m fine with them continuing their winning streak, but keep it a little bit more realistic (and I am using that term loosely right now).

And finally, that woman… She is actually Shinichi’s math teacher and knows whom he cherishes the most. She actually has a hostage that she could harm whenever she pleases, basically ensuring Shinichi’s full cooperation. She planned it all out and she is probably more experienced than Migi, making her a very big threat. This is going to get rough…

Trinity Seven episode 03

So we finally got a clear picture of what we can expect from Trinity Seven. We already knew what it was about and had a rough idea of what we could expect, but now we know for sure. We finally know what drives this story.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.50_[2014.10.22_23.47.56]Despite the fact that I dislike the way they started this episode (as though nothing had happened last week, followed up by the actual story of what happened), I still find it very interesting. I also find that other girl, Yui, quite interesting. She seems to have an interesting ability. I cannot help but be a little curious, you know?

I won’t even discuss those hot springs and beach scenes for too long. What’s the point? The protagonist is a straightforward pervert that will always say what’s on his mind without thinking things through. When you combine all of that with a group of cute girls… Well, the result is pretty darn obvious if you look at it objectively.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.56_[2014.10.22_23.48.07]But no, Arata takes the spotlight again after he officially became a mage. He accessed the archives, chose a “thema”, and actually entered this so-called “magus-mode”. I am not sure if I understood this correctly, but I am pretty sure that a mage can only research one “thema” and can therefor only use one type of magic. It seems that that doesn’t apply to our protagonist. He can chose whatever “thema” he wants and utilize whatever type of magic he wants. I don’t know if there’s a limit or anything like that, but I’m guessing he’s going to be copying the magic of the Trinity Seven members, which would be why he needs to meet all seven of them.
