Assassination Classroom episode 10

You know, the problem with Assassination Classroom is that they are always trying to keep things lively and interesting by doing the exact same thing over and over again. Most anime do it like this, but in Assassination Classroom it happens too often.

[Ohys-Raws] Ansatsu Kyoushitsu - 10 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_07.11_[2015.03.22_00.16.44]I’m sure a lot of you have noticed already. Every time they try to keep things interesting and lively they do so by introducing a new character or two. It was the same with that teacher, with that red-haired kid, that computer and this time it’s going to be a couple of characters that seem to have some sort of a connection to Koro-sensei. Don’t get me wrong, I like all of the characters so far, but there’s a limit to how long this’ll last. You cannot keep introducing new characters just to keep things interesting. It gets out of hand quite easily.

[Ohys-Raws] Ansatsu Kyoushitsu - 10 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_16.39_[2015.03.22_00.16.54]But hey, ignoring that ridiculous competition amongst teacher’s nonsense, I found it quite nice to see how Koro-sensei cares about his students by taking them on trips, looking after them and making sure that they get all the attention and support they need. It is still hard to believe that he plans to destroy the earth.

Nevertheless, I have a feeling that the following episode are going to tell us a bit more about that creature. We already got a hint a few weeks back about the possibility of Koro-sensei’s humanity at one point in time. Maybe those two new characters might shed some light about what he is or where he comes from.

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso episode 22

I knew it. The ending was so predictable. In fact, half of the story was so predictable that it renders my overall opinion of Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso quite low. Never mind the fact that they killed off the best character on the show. It being so predictable is by far the worst thing about this story.

[HorribleSubs] Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - 22 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.45_[2015.03.20_23.45.08]So yeah, I supposed I hit the mark spot-on when I said that Kaori would probably die during that operation and during Kousei’s performance. Anyone could’ve seen that one coming. But it’s not just that. Its other parts of the story that were simply too predictable. Nevertheless, I think that Kaori’s condition throughout the show, probably a way to crank up the drama, was the biggest problem due to everything around it being so incredibly predictable that the rest of the story, as interesting as it was at times, became less and less amusing.

[HorribleSubs] Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - 22 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.41_[2015.03.20_23.45.31]Still, I must admit that I really liked that letter. That might’ve been the best thing that happened for the past few months to be very honest. It shows that Kaori loved Kousei all along, and that she only used that soccer freak to get close to him. I mean, it was quite obvious that she and Kousei were a much better match.

Soccer boy and Baseball girl are a good match. Not Kousei and soccer girl or soccer boy and Kaori. But that was obvious since episode one. It’s still just a damn shame that they had to kill Kaori, but at least it was a beautiful story in general. Not to mention the incredible artwork. Kudos.

Tokyo Ghoul √A episode 11

I hate myself for saying this; but this post has to be kept short due to a gross shortage of time. That and I feel like I’m about to die. I think that nasty fever has returned or something because I feel absolutely terrible.

[Ohys-Raws] Tokyo Ghoul A - 11 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_17.11_[2015.03.19_23.13.28]Anyway, this long-awaited episode finally aired and I watched it with a smile on my face. I watched how the real One-eyed Owl tore apart the bastards that took down the old man. I don’t know if that really is that man’s daughter, seeing as she laughed quite a lot, but that ghoul definitely seemed to care enough to get really angry.

What about reckless Ken? Well, I guess he’s improving. He did not surrender to the madness within and maintained in control the entire time during his fight against Amon-chan. I just want to see how this’ll end. I don’t think he’s going to attack his old friend and I don’t think that One-eyed Owl is going to win somehow. Things are not looking well. I can’t wait to see what happens!

Parasyte episode 23

Good episode. We all knew that Migi was still alive and that he would return to Shinichi, so I am not going to moan about it being predictable or anything. It was only to be expected, otherwise the story would’ve been pointless.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 23 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.30_[2015.03.18_23.12.59]So Shinichi went back there to face that supposedly invincible monster on his own. One superhuman versus a monster that consist out of several parasites and one parasitic overlord. I thought it was kind of weird that he returned with that rusty chopper, but in the end he managed to do incredible damage with a rusty piece of metal that was supposedly poisonous due to all sorts of chemicals and whatnot. That poison destroyed Gotou’s body, causing all the other parasites to fear for their survival, and allowing Migi to return to Shinichi’s side.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 23 [720p].mkv_snapshot_15.51_[2015.03.18_23.13.11]It was quite an interesting turn of events, I’ll give ‘em that, but I believe it could’ve been executed a bit better to be very honest. I mean, Migi exited his body after taking down some vital organs. Why when the poison was all that was necessary for the other parasites to run amok? Was that the cherry on top of the cake or was it just to make sure?

Either way; Shinichi chopped down Gotou before he got the chance to regenerate. Smart move. You don’t want a monster like that running around. You’d be looking over your shoulder for the rest of your life if you’d let him live. But still, part of me believes that there’s more bad stuff coming. After all; that murderer was quite interested in Shinichi and he did manage to escape, remember? I am pretty sure I am right about this.

Kamisama Kiss 2 episode 10

I think it is fine that Nanami chooses to help everyone she encounters. It’s very noble of her I suppose, but at one point she will overreach and find herself in a situation where her talismans and chats won’t help her.

[Ohys-Raws] Kami-sama Hajimemashita 2 - 10 (TX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_16.17_[2015.03.17_23.31.05]Nanami decided to follow in that Tengu, as everyone already expected once again, into the darkness where a lightning beast of sorts lives. She just doesn’t learn that her being there doesn’t always help. Yes, she can be useful, but mostly she’s just in over her head. I mean, her interference nearly cost that Tengu his life and it still isn’t known if he’ll ever fly again even though he took some of those divine peach pills. Not to mention the fact that both of them would’ve been dead if Tomoe didn’t come to her aid at the right moment as usual. I really like Nanami, but I am getting tired of her constant meddling.

Maria the Virgin Witch episode 10

I am really happy that Maria has made all of those friends recently. She may not have her powers back, but she has friends that are willing to support and help her now that she needs it. That just goes to show that she doesn’t stand alone, at least.

[Ohys-Raws] Junketsu no Maria - 10 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_00.17_[2015.03.16_23.49.46]So Maria was supposed to die at the stake for being a witch. They were planning on burning her even though she saved their lives many times over. It makes you wonder why she even wanted to help them. The war has started once again and things are getting out of hand. Many people are dying and many properties are being destroyed now that Maria isn’t around to prevent them from going to war. People must’ve realized this by now, so why support the church when they are so useless instead of supporting Maria, whom has been stopping one war after the other all this time? It’s so stupid.

[Ohys-Raws] Junketsu no Maria - 10 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_20.16_[2015.03.16_23.50.09]I also thought that that English witch was quite right when saying that the angels and that their creative is wrong. They do now know love because love if something that humans created. It’s something that defines humanity, so it is only natural that the heavens don’t understand it. She definitely won that argument, even though she nearly got killed.

What now? As Maria going to get her powers back? Is she going to fight the heavens again? There are, if I am correct, two episodes left so a lot can still happen, but I suspect that that mysterious entity is going to involve itself with Maria soon. Why else approach Maria regularly like that? It obviously has plans for Maria.

Aldnoah.Zero 2 episode 10

What a really strange episode. So much happened during this week’s Aldnoah Zero episode and yet I have so little to say. Finding the right words is difficult and actually thinking of something worthwhile is even harder.

[HorribleSubs] Aldnoah Zero - 22 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.57_[2015.03.15_23.43.56]Inaho and the rest of his comrades were apparently tired of constantly defending their planet, so they decided to launch an attack of their own with a hidden objective; to rescue the awakened princess and to bring her back to earth so that she may help them stop the war from going on much longer, which is quite the difficult task with Slaine trying to obtain more and more power.

I imagine that Slaine would lose a lot of power and a lot of leverage when that princess is rescued. A lot of people would stop following him if it would come out, provided they’d believe it. Slaine could just say that she’s a hologram or something and use his puppet to continue playing Asseylum for him. Still, the damage is done; he lost what he loves most. We’ll just have to see how he copes with it.

Assassination Classroom episode 09

It’s a damn shame that I have to keep this post short because I am running out of time. I have had a hellish day. I haven’t sat still all day and all I want to do is close my eyes right now and sleep for a week. God I’m tired. I haven’t even seen this week’s Aldnoah yet. Saving that one for tomorrow.

[Ohys-Raws] Ansatsu Kyoushitsu - 09 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_15.30_[2015.03.14_23.46.24]So they decided to add a new “student” to the story. It would’ve been a big boring and predictable if it were an actual student, but they decided to spice things up by making that student an A.I. killing machine that will continue to learn more about Koro-sensei in order to find a way and kill him before he destroys the earth.

You can say whatever you want, but a computer has a higher chance of success than a human. Humans make a lot of mistakes and are a lot slower, but those machines are all logical and do things based on their own calculations. That is why I have quite a bit of faith in his new “student”. That thing adds a new element of comedy to the story.
