I really wanted to keep this post short. I am rather short on time and this episode really disappointed me (I’ll get to that later). Nevertheless, it was a great episode and a lot of good things happened. I would feel ashamed if I didn’t write up a decent post (or something that comes close to that).
We know that Hinami lost both her parents to those Doves (that’s what Ghouls call those Ghoul-hunting agents) and that their Kagune’s (personal Ghoul weapon. Unique to each Ghoul I believe) were turned into weapons in order to hunt down and kill Ghouls. Basically, their own weapons, which are part of their bodies, are being turned into external weapons for Doves since guns and knives aren’t as effective as one might hope. To think that those guys would actually lure Hinami to come out by using her mother’s purse as some kind of smell-beacon. And it actually worked…
Hinami should praise herself lucky that Touka and Ken both went after her and helped her fight off those two Doves. Ken, unfortunately, did not become that legendary badass that we’ve heard so much about. Nor did his hair turn white. He just whooped a little bit of ass and let his enemy escape before he lost himself to his hunger.
I’m also a bit surprised by Touka. She really seems weak now, even though she took on Shuu a couple of episodes ago. Maybe she needed to feed a bit before she started her fight? I don’t know. All I know is that it took Hinami, which inherited both her parents’ Kagune, to take down that insane Dove, Kureo. Touka may have permanently finished him off, but Hinami’s the one that took him down. I wouldn’t mind seeing her matched up against Ken (for fun, of course).Read More
Damn you, Majimoji Rurumo! My hopes for this episode shot up like you wouldn’t believe. A group of horny teenagers on a beach with no parents or teachers around… Oh yeah, something is going down. Then again, this is Majimoji Rurumo, not some cheap, American porno flick.
So everyone decided to go to the beach. Even those three bossy girls from the discipline committee were there. A group of girls and a group of boys on a nice beach, enjoying a beautiful day and trying to accomplish god only knows what (go ahead and call me god in this case). A few teenage boys and their surging hormones are no match for a group of teenage girls and their bouncing breasts, wiggling behinds and model-like hips. Any man would think like that. I can remember those days. Hopping around at the pool, messing around, trying to finger f*ck girls… Ah… The good ol’ days…
What happened though? None of the boys even tried to make a move. They just stood there with a perverted smile on their faces as they watched the girls frolic and play. Watching is good and all, but at one point a regular boy might want a little bit more than that. God knows I did. That’s one of the things I fail to understand about Majimoji Rurumo.
I must admit that I’m really disappointed in Kouta. He had a half-naked Chiro in front of him wearing a seashell bikini. He did nothing. He had a willing Rurumo-chan after him that wanted to kiss him. He did nothing. It’s not like Rurumo did it against her will. She herself wanted to kiss the guy. That Kouta sure talks big, but he certainly chickens out when it’s time to put his money where his mouth is.Read More
You know, it’s actually quite funny. I actually started to think that I somewhat understood women after all these years. I kept telling myself that Ao Haru Ride is just function and that girls don’t actually think like that. My niece certainly set me straight on that one…
I am honestly losing a little bit of interest in Ao Haru Ride. It’s all so pointless. They make everything seem so complicated and important, yet everyone knows the outcome. I for one am completely puzzled. I keep asking the same question during every episode; “why don’t you say something if you realize you like him/her?”
This episode just added to that. Futaba bought new shampoo because Kou made a comment on how her hair smells. She bought something new in order to impress him and seem more girly, only to end up doubting her decision afterwards. What is up with that? So many pointless emotions… I’m guessing the majority of Ao Haru Ride fans consist primarily of girls.Read More
Oh wow, another amazing Akame ga Kill! episode! I am truly glad that I chose this over DRAMAtical Murder. The latter has been so boring lately that I’m actually thinking about dropping it if the next episode doesn’t change things.
Akame ga Kill! does not have that problem. It is exciting and interesting. I sat on the edge of my chair when that infamous general set loose her three dogs of war upon the unsuspecting Night Raid. Their approach was simple and quite underhanded, but quite effective nonetheless. They lured out Night Raid by killing important, known people and passed it off as Night Raid’s doing. That way people would come to hate Night Raid (even more). It would only be a matter of time before Night Raid makes their appearance to stop them from doing any more damage.
I wonder why they still send Tatsumi out on missions. They once again set him up against opponents that wield those almighty weapons. Three of them this time. It is almost as though they want him dead. They know that he stands no chance against opponents like that. Even Tatsumi himself knows that he stands no chance.
That just brings me to a true hero; Bulat. That guy is insane. He just pushed back two of them, killed the third one and saved Tatsumi from getting killed. He did all that in just one attack. So what if he’s up against the general that he used to serve? If he’s still alive then that means that he has given in to corruption. I hope Bulat realizes that and does to him what he did to that other guy.Read More
I was surfing the internet a couple of days ago when I stumbled upon a Barakamon topic. It seems that there has been talk about a live-action series. Wouldn’t that be interesting to see “real” Naru on your screen? I might actually like that.
Anyway, the group decided to go fishing before Seishuu’s friends, Takao and that annoying little brat he brought with him, return back home to resume their own lives. You immediately know that it won’t be one of your regular fishing trips. Nothing has been regular in any of the episodes. I just laughed as they messed up even the simplest of things without worrying about what they’re actually doing. So what if they fish using strange equipment or methods? Everything will be fine as long as Naru is around to raise a little bit of hell. It keeps things interesting.
Quite frankly, I’m not into all of that melodrama crap. Let them shop for a few souvenirs before they go back home and say goodbye to them afterwards. No point in dragging out the inevitable. That’s why I couldn’t really understand that scene where they all had to go through that metal detector. I failed to find that funny. Perhaps I’ll watch that scene again after I finish writing this.
I’m hoping for some explosive improvement next week. Seishuu has his little reunion and he’s certainly had plenty of fun. Now would be a good time for him to grow a little as an artist and win something once again. After all, isn’t that the whole point of him being there? Would be nice to see if he actually improved on that island.Read More
