Honestly, this episode doesn’t even deserve a full post. We all knew this was coming and I for one went “duh!” after it finished. I could’ve predicted this one from start to finish after how they ended the last episode.
Let’s face it; that weapon, created by a parasite-infected brat, ended up being more than they could handle. It went out of control after it kept absorbing more and more energy. So what happens? That’s right. The whole of Sidonia is alerted because a threat on their ship was detected. Mechs are sent out to fight it and the whole wheel of mayhem just goes round and round.
The threat sort of dealt with itself. And now? That guy is simply going to continue his experiments and that captain is going to let him because she’s so power-hungry. Nothing will change if nobody steps up and says and does something about it. Experiments will continue to fail until those people are stopped. Time will tell…Read More
Okay, better… Much better. It’s a damn shame that I’ve come down with a tremendous headache and have to make this post short and sweet before diving into bed. Some days are hardly worth it, you know?
So Class E decided to execute their plan. They seemed to have been working on it for some time and things went pretty smoothly. They made use of a lot of his weaknesses in order to push him into a corner where he couldn’t use his insane speed to escape. You could say he dug his own grave for promising not to go anywhere.
They trapped him, tricked him and successfully forced him to use his trump card; his last defence. A mode where he traps himself inside a little indestructible ball. He cannot move whilst inside and people can do whatever they want with him during that period. Sounds like a poor defence to me? Just throw that ball inside a container filled with melted anti-alien liquid.Read More
Okay, I’m not even going to bother focussing on Zapp’s interest in some Burger King-wannabe employee. It’s just not really worth my time since that guy messed around all the time. I have yet to see him serious about anything.
But hey, that’s Zapp. I already thought that there was nothing interesting about Zapp or anything that even remotely relates to him. Yeah, I thought that, but then this awesome character shows up out of nowhere and starts hauling so much ass that he’s instantly tied with Klaus for my number one favourite character spot on this show. Seriously, this dude was so strange and yet so freakishly awesome that I couldn’t keep my eyes away from him. He looks weird, he talks weird and he fights like a true champ. Who knew that Zapp, a childish boar of a man, had a master like that? Shocking.
So this character whose name I failed to catch was fighting head to head with one of those blood breeds and defeated him without breaking a sweat. Sure, this particular blood breed may not have been “complete” during that time, but it doesn’t make that old guy any less amazing. He ‘pwned’ that blood breed and still managed to find time to put his disciple to the test.
Yeah, I definitely want to see more of that guy. I also don’t mind seeing a bit of that knew character that he was talking about. Apparently there’s another Zapp somewhere. What a dreadful thought. But hey, I’m liking this whole “Blood Dipper Style”. I could definitely do with a bit more of that, so go ahead and bring out that character.Read More
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.
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.
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.Read More
Another great episode. DanMachi started out so underrated because it was a little ecchi and people thought that it was going to be one of those cheap shows that cared more about fan service than giving us a good story. Wrong! It turned out to be a great show and the ratings now reflect that.
This episode turned out quite nice. Bell-kun has been training with the sword princess for a whole week and even she could not believe how fast his progress was. This is both good and bad. It’s good that he’s making a lot of progress that might just end up saving his life more than once, but it’s bad that others are now starting to notice that there’s something abnormal about his progress. People get suspicious when he can do things that someone of his level shouldn’t be able to do yet, not to mention the fact that he’s clearing dungeons that other players would take months if not years to reach.
Have I said that I absolutely love the pace in DanMachi? Of course I did. It’s amazing. I can’t say it enough. They didn’t waste any time on bringing out that powered-up Minotaur for Bell-kun to defeat. That insane goddess was watching in ecstasy as Bell-kun slashed that thing up as though tomorrow would never come for him.
The sad part is that he almost lost. Do you know what I want to see right now? A stats update that would put him in the same league as the sword princess. It would open so many doors. Sure, it would probably make him an overpowered character in no-time (which I would also love), but just image the possibilities… Bliss…Read More
