Yeah, I’m definitely going to stop writing about Space Brothers after the 100th episode. This has been going back and forth for the past few months and I can already tell what’s going to happen in the future. I usually enjoy writing these posts, but when it’s time to write about Space Brothers I get all annoyed.
I knew this was going to be a horrendous episode when I saw that Mutta’s parents were in it. There is never a normal episode when those two characters are involved. It always jumps from drama or action to pointless comedy without any progress. Same with Mutta; what’s the point of continuing this road when most of the viewers can already see the ending?
Anyway, Hibito will probably not be going to the moon if we were to believe that NASA top-dog. We all know that that’s probably not true. Mutta and the others will find out about it and help him prove himself once more. I’m confident that Hibito will return to space in the future (provided Space Brothers doesn’t get cancelled before that happens).Read More
I thought that the Naruto Shippuuden fillers were over since we had two episodes this week, but no, they’re still going strong. I’m guessing that I’ll be posting Gin no Saji episodes on Saturday for a few more weeks. Probably until the second Gin no Saji season ends.
So a new episode arrives and we immediately dive in a world of pain and misery. They covered it up by starting out with this cheese-making business at the beginning of the episode, which I found very informative. In fact, I quite liked that because I always wanted to try making my own cheese. It sounded easy enough until I saw that scene. Seems like a whole lot of work…
Anyway, during this episode we learned why Ichirou, the school’s biggest baseball freak, wasn’t attending school during the past few episodes. It seems that he dropped out because he can no longer afford to spend his time learning new things when he could earning money by working. You see, his family just went bankrupt and they need money to pay off their debts.
This all sounds very problematic and dreadful. It is. It truly is. However, things got so much worse when they revealed that the Mikage family co-signed the Komaba family’s loan, which means that the Mikage family’s business is now on the line as well. Things will only get worse if the Komaba family cannot pay off their debts in time.
This one episode, as dreadful as it truly was, explained so many things. After seeing the episode I actually stopped and thought about it for a few minutes. It’s almost a given that the Mikage will go under as well if the Komaba family can’t come up with the money, and that is why Aki’s usually so on-edge. This is a perfect opportunity for Yugo to shine. He is great with this sort of thing. It may not be any of his business, but it’s the perfect opportunity for him to impress Aki.Read More
The April issue of Gakken’s Monthly Animedia magazine is announcing on Monday that a television anime adaptation of Marvelous AQL’s Bakumatsu Rock game has been green-lit for a July premiere. The genre of the game is “Bakumatsu-era revolutionary adventure where you fight by singing” and its tagline is, “Start a revolution in the Bakumatsu Era with songs!”
The story is set in the Bakumatsu era, at the end of the shoguns’ rule over Japan in the middle of the 19th century. The Tokugawa shogunate uses the brainwashing “Heaven’s Songs” by the top idols in Shinsengumi to subjugate the country and its people. In this Japan, writing or singing any songs besides the “Heaven’s Songs” is a capital offense. Ryōma Sakamoto and the other rockers rise up and change the world with rock ‘n’ roll for freedom and justice.
Itsuro Kawasaki (Sengoku Basara: Samurai Kings, The Legend of the Legendary Heroes, Arc the Lad) is directing the anime at Studio DEEN. Mitsutaka Hirota (The Prince of Tennis II, X-Men) is in charge of the scripts, and Akiharu Ishii (The Prince of Tennis, Blood+, Loups=Garous – The Motion Picture) is designing the characters.Read More
There is something terribly wrong with this episode. I’m overall quite happy by what I saw this week, but the ending kind of worries me. There are a few episodes left and I would really like to see when and if Kobeni and Hakuya end up together. I would like that a lot.
I remember watching Kobeni’s curiosity taking over as she spied on Hakuya, Mashiro and Konoha, a girl that turned out to be of the same species as Hakuya and Mashiro. She overheard as Honoka asked Hakuya to marry him. Does she love him? No. It seems that their species doesn’t have a lot of males, so her mother taught her to ask one in marriage if she ever met one.
What does this mean? I understand that not everyone is impressed by this. It certainly isn’t enough for people to get excited about what’s to come. To me, it just means that Kobeni has a rival now and that she needs to think about her feelings for Hakuya, especially since Hakuya’s feelings for her are so obvious. The ball’s pretty much in Kobeni’s court.
Kobeni must’ve realized that there are other girls out there that would love to become Hakuya’s partner. Sure, Hakuya won’t budge for as long as they’re engaged, but it sure put Kobeni on the spot and it was enough to light the fuse. Kobeni kind of confessed (with the help of Mashiro). It could be too soon to say, but this might be the official start of their relationship (as engaged boyfriend and girlfriend).
All good news so far! Hell, its great news! But the ending seriously worries me. Benio suddenly entered demon-mode and started to sabotage Hakuya when Mashiro kind of confessed for Kobeni. Benio knew that they were engaged, but could it be that she never took it seriously? Did she thing that Kobeni would refuse? It sure seems that Benio is against it. I’m starting to get a little worried…Read More
I’m really starting to get nervous here. Episode nine has passed and still no sign of Vermillion-chan. I cannot get over how interesting that character was. I want to know more about her. I want to see her again and hear her talk. I want more!
You can tell that things are coming to a close. The story has suddenly become very hectic now that the city is about to get levelled. It’s a strange thing, but it gets done all the time; making characters look weaker when a new opponent surfaces. The school chairwoman, Ayaka’s mother, was known to be the strongest witch in that city and nearly unbeatable. Did it show? No. The town was falling apart after that tower witch activated and what happened to the principle? She collapsed because that spell uses up all of her magic. It’s basically her magic that’s currently destroying the entire city.
Think about it: you have a city that you must protect at all costs. You have family and friends there. Your home is there. You can clearly tell that it’s important to her. I may have missed the explanation, but why is it that the city is rigged with a spell that makes everything explode? Rather, why is it that her enemy has the ‘key’ to set it off? It makes no sense to me.
Anyway, Honoka and Ayaka can only run right now. Ayaka isn’t strong enough to fight that tower witch and her mother is currently useless. Honaka can’t fight at all so I’m guessing that Vermillion-chan will finally appear again if Honoka gets caught. Do not forget that they’re after the power that currently resides within Honoka… It’s really only a matter of time (of which we have very little right now).Read More
