I loved ERASED. Absolutely loved it. It made me raise the bar so high that the ending ended up to be a little disappointing. I guess there are a few things that I don’t fully agree with after all I’ve seen during the past three months.
I don’t like the idea of that lunatic sparing Satoru’s life because he couldn’t live without him anymore. What is up with that? I understand that he’s a total head case. I just cannot understand why he would spare Satoru’s life fifteen years ago, I certainly don’t understand why he didn’t take Satoru’s life during the fifteen years he’s been in coming and I absolutely do not understand why he didn’t kill him on that rooftop when he had the chance, especially after Satoru remembered everything. Could it be that I’m not crazy enough myself to understand such a mind-set?
I also don’t really like the way it ended in general. Satoru still lost fifteen years of his life, even though he technically already lived all those years before he went back in time, and he could only catch that lunatic by throwing himself off that roof in order to bait out that psychopath once and for all.
Not all of it was bad though. He ended up becoming a successful mangaka after all and he even ended up meeting the one girl that believed in him when no one else would. That makes it a bit more painful since it’s up to our imagination from this point forward. In my mind they get together eventually and have 2 kids.Read More
I suppose this was a pretty good ending if you compare it to other anime. I would love another season of this, but I highly doubt that we’ll get to see any more content any time soon (if ever). There’s still a possibility since they didn’t tie up all the loose ends.
We all knew that Qwenthur wouldn’t die. We knew that much. Being helped by the enemy is kind of embarrassing, asking them for their help afterwards was even worse but actually kneeling was the finisher. I know that he would do anything to help his friends, but kneeling for that cocky loli wasn’t cool no matter what.
But yeah, das wunderkind managed to pull of another miracle and ended up destroying the princess’ Object in order to prevent her from being killed by that A.I. controlled Object after hers was hijacked. What pisses me off is that that geezer wasn’t caught and that it ended with the princess landing into the arms of Qwenthur. That is why I hope for another season.Read More
I suppose this was a good episode? Class E managed to prove their worth, thereby destroying everything that insane principle had hoped to build. The problem with characters like that is that they don’t stop as long as they still have at least one option.
The principle had to face his most prominent class, including his son, as they told him that Class E turned out to be better than them in general. So they wanted to be like them and they even suggested to join Class E, which was the final drop that made the bucket run over. He was insane to begin with, no doubt, but he actually managed to take it one step further.
He decided to demolish Class E’s school building and basically send the students to some kind of prison-like institution. The only way they can escape this fate is if their beloved Koro-sensei, whom they have tried to kill countless of times themselves, manages to survive that insane principle’s challenge. A remarkable improvement if you compare it to some of the previous episodes.Read More
I have to admit that the ending is starting to look pretty promising. Things have picked up again. No more mixed scenes or nonsense flashbacks. We’re wrapping things up rapidly and I am loving it once again!
So afro-kun has finally remembered most of it. He and only he knows where the all-powerful Genesis is and the one that used to control it (somewhat) has been turned into a giant monster. This must’ve been a huge blow for Loser. To see his beloved wife in that form when he himself has been scarred for life… Painful doesn’t begin to describe it.
What’ll happen? Well, I think it’s fairly obvious. Afro-kun will remember what he did with that Genesis thing, probably use it to dispose of that insane scientist and the monster that he’s created and then he’ll probably end up destroying it somehow so that nobody will ever use it again. I doubt that another character will end up taking it from him at this point.Read More
I have some seriously mixed feelings about this episode. I honestly don’t agree with a lot of it and I think they could’ve done it a whole lot better. This kind of puts things in perspective now.
You follow a bunch of characters and their journey for freedom and you start to think that they’re the heroes. Are they though? I’m not saying that Gjallarhorn should win or anything, but I did not like how Orga was willing to sacrifice so many of his comrades by using them as decoys so that the old man could be escorted deeper into the city.
A leader that knowingly sends his men to die is not a leader at all. I thought that Mika, at least, would have something to say about that, but instead he was on board with it and fought as hard as he could. I wouldn’t be surprised if he, too, died during next week’s episode. I’d hate that, but I wouldn’t be surprised at this point. Not at all.Read More
Man… The thought of Gate ending is really upsetting. Why give Assassination Classroom so man episodes and Gate so few? I would rather have it the other way, seeing as Gate has so much more to offer in the long run.
I could summarize this week’s episode by simply calling it an epic turn of events, but that wouldn’t do it justice. It was fantastic to see how the JSDF came into action by send out choppers, paratroopers and various other armed forces to fight off hostile soldiers and protect that palace and the people inside. I could do with more of that.
Also, the look on that fool’s face as his empire was being overrun was absolutely priceless. I still hate the fact that they’re completely oblivious to the fact that he’s obviously being manipulated by his own slave. Oh well… At least the guy’s losing leverage bit by bit. He’ll lose a lot if Youji actually manages to rescue the princess.Read More
It was a very nice episode. We were rewarded with the mother of all battles and now it’s time to end this. I haven’t heard anything about the possibility of a second season. Since this was based on a game it’s definitely within the realm of possibilities.
Vurai is dead. Oshutoru transformed, the two of them fought and Haku’s personal servants, whom were assigned to him by his late brother, sealed the power of Vurai’s mask, allowing Oshutoru to finish him off. This will probably not end it all. The other generals won’t take it lying down and one of them, arguably the strongest one, is still missing.
I had hoped that Haku would take the reins. I honestly doubt that he will though. I don’t think that Oshutoru will either. I’m guessing that the princess will recover soon and that she will be the empire’s figurehead after all. I may think the right person for the job is Oshutoru and maybe Haku if they were in a tight spot, but that girl? Not really.Read More
This episode was both annoying and heavy. I am truly glad that I chose ERASED to write about. Never regretted it at all. It’s been fantastic since the start. Normally it would be pretty easy to spot the culprits. Not here though. It took me quite a while.
Our poor protagonist was forced into a coma after that lunatic drove that car into a frozen lake. He was asleep for fifteen years and his mother took care of him every day during that period. That‘s seriously heavy stuff. He managed to save the lives of his friends (although others may not have been so lucky) by sacrificing fifteen years.
What annoyed me is that the guy didn’t remember a thing. I don’t blame him; it happens. What annoyed me even more is that the maniac that did that to him showed up and pretended to be a friend. I got really annoyed. Our protagonist remembers again so I hope that he finally deals the final blow next week, even though he’s in a wheelchair, told his killer that he remembers and that he’s alone with him on a deserted rooftop. Not a very good combination…Read More
