I forgot to watch Knights of Sidonia because I didn’t haul it in. I keep forgetting that HorribleSubs doesn’t cover that show so I have to search for it myself. But that’s fine; this week’s Ore Monogatari was pretty darn good.
So the hurdle continues. Takeo has a girlfriend now and Rinko now has a boyfriend. Very nice. It still puzzles me that Rinko was the one that wanted to be a little bit more physical instead of Takeo. Usually it’s the guy that wants to touch his girl more and more. Quite the interesting twist. I must say that the change hasn’t become quite clear to me yet. They still didn’t seem very close during this episode, and that’s not because Takeo had other things to worry about this time. I’m starting to wonder what the point of all of that was, really.
So Takeo was begged by a couple of Judo goons to help them out in their upcoming tournament. They really wanted to win this to boost morale and whatnot. Now, Takeo is a really good guy, so it’s not surprising that he instantly agreed to help, but he was willing to take a small break from dating his little girlfriend so that he could train for a month.
You know, all that’s really nice and all. I saw plenty of great scenes where I could enjoy Rinko’s adorable smile. That’s really nice. But hey, I am still waiting for Rinko to introduce her boyfriend to her parents. Aren’t you curious to see their reaction? I really want to see that happen. Her parents will probably be against it since most people judge books by their covers, so I am curious how Takeo’s going to fix that.Read More
Oh man… I am going to start another rant again. I can feel it. Don’t you just want to smash the protagonist’s face in sometimes? Honestly. It’s a damn shame that it’s 2D, because if this was real then I would’ve risked jail time to punch that idiot.
Leonardo went out with that girl’s brother. He learned that she has a heart condition and that taking her out to see a movie may not have been a smart move, especially if something had happened. But hey, he didn’t know. He also doesn’t know that her brother, a blonde kid with glasses, is probably one of the most dangerous guys out there, which brings me to the following point; Leonardo really is an idiot. He talks openly with everyone and he goes along with everything. It’s like he trusts everyone after just one short conversation. He is so gullible that he’s bound to screw up big-time sooner or later.
And that kid? He’s probably the vampire overlord or something. He sure seemed important when he dropped the charade. Does that mean that the girl is a vampire too? Or was the boy turned? Was his body invaded somehow? All questions that will hopefully be answered soon when a war between vampires and everything else breaks out.
Who will win? If Leonardo is correct about there being thousands of them then I assume, based on what I’ve seen so far, that those creatures will win. Of course, Kekkai Sensen loves to introduce new characters, so there’s that possibility of a huge load of new powerhouses showing up during the next few episodes. We’ll just have to wait and see.Read More
Well, I suppose this was a good episode? The pace is still sickeningly slow and I don’t think that’s going to get better any time soon, but at least we got to see some action this week. No more flashback scenes all the time.
So they finally went beyond their precious walls. They left the city to do a little bit of recon. Well, that’s fine. Kill a monster here and there, you know? But that’s when they come upon a trap set by vampires; a little girl being followed by a monster. So yeah, the boys couldn’t allow that girl to get killed by that monster when they had the power to prevent that. That loli girl, a new character that’s supposed to train them, warned them not to interfere as it was a trap, but they walked right into it anyway because they didn’t want to see the girl die.
Now comes the part that really disappointed me. Yes, those idiots fell into a vampire trap when they chose to save that girl. But that’s fine now. They have their brand new weapons and their new demon friends. They were up against a couple of low ranking vampires from what I could tell. None of them had demonic weapons so they, the boys, should have been able to defeat those vampires without it being too much of a problem. What happened? They started losing pretty badly and they even ended up retreating. I know they just got those weapons, but I am really disappointed by what I saw this week.Read More
You know, someone mailed me yesterday and said; “GameDemon, you know, the anime has actually already caught up with the manga for as far as it has been translated.” Reading that actually put a frown on my face. I almost gave in and read the manga. I am really glad I didn’t now.
Quite a lot has happened during this episode. And you know, I really think that Seraph of the End can learn from DanMachi. The pace of DanMachi is wonderful. It’s all moving along so nicely; rarely a dull moment. I mean, that little cat-girl ended up joining Bell’s little family against the wishes of his goddess, Hestia. Mind you, Hestia’s not a mean goddess. She just doesn’t like it if other girls get too close to her beloved Bell-kun. But hey, nothing new there, right? Hestia has always been devoted to him and can be quite the possessive girl when she wants to be.
But yeah, I could see that one coming already. What I couldn’t see coming is that he, Bell-kun, would be reunited with the girl that he has been running away from all this time. Yes, the beautiful sword princess, Ais. It seems that she came to return something that belongs to Bell by contacting his guild advisor.
Yeah, did not see that one coming. She trapped him nicely so that he couldn’t run away again before she got to talk to him. Nor could I see it coming that she would end up training him a little when it comes to fighting properly. Who knows? They might actually get together at one point if they continue to spend more quality time together.Read More
Another short post incoming. Assassination Classroom is really doing badly again. They throw in a really epic episode every now and then and that just gets followed up by mediocre episodes that don’t really matter in the end.
Did I really want to see an episode where one student tried to bait Koro-sensei with a mountain of dirty magazines? Hell no. What would be the point of something as stupid as that? It wasn’t even funny. The fact that he was dressed as a beetle, the animals that they were initially hunting, made things even more confusing.
I should have known. The episode started out really crappy and that’s when I should’ve known that it was going to be a waste of my time. Did they really expect us to laugh or to think that Koro-sensei is weak when it comes to porn? Come on… let’s cut down on the low level comedy and focus more on the action.Read More
Well, it seems that I was overreacting during my last episode. I expected something far worse to happen. Did I miscalculate the fact that these characters are all weird and childish? Maybe I was thinking too serious about things.
So Makoto’s sister decided to meddle after she met up with Takeo. It’s something that everyone could’ve seen coming. Women are like that, you know. But hey, she managed to drag out the necessary information; which was that Rinko was so incredibly worried that Takeo sees her as this pure creature that wouldn’t do anything indecent or physical, even though the girl wanted things to get physical. She wanted to hold hands, hug and kiss and do things that teenagers do at that age. You know, the usual. She was worried about something as insignificant as that…
Fine, I can see why that might be a bit of a problem. The guy is almost twice her size, he’s built like a brick chicken house and he has no experience with girls whatsoever. I can somehow understand why she would be reluctant to confront him about this issue. But hey, she did and he understood. Things are once again on the up and up.
As for Ai; she lost. I don’t see this relationship dying anytime soon. Besides, I am fairly certain that Takeo only sees Ai as a sister figure and nothing more. The thought of her being girlfriend material probably never even entered his head even once. Do I feel bad about that? Not really. She had plenty of time to tell him about her feelings. Now it’s simply too late.Read More
I just finished watching this episode and I must say that there are one or two things that I would like to point out. Other than that it’s going to be a very short post as nothing of any importance happened this week.
First thing’s first; people are now recovering from the last great battle and I noticed that Nagate’s little girlfriend had a couple of prosthetics placed after her fight. I noticed that those things are so advanced that they can do a lot more than regular limbs, especially when it comes to combat. Why not just build robots altogether? They have the technology and the resources… I mean, they are already “building” humans.
The second part would have to be the chimera’s recovery. She recovered and people suddenly changed their minds about her. She saved them and suddenly she’s welcome. This will have been the green-lit for the creation of more chimeras. Isn’t that their goal? To build a small army of chimeras to help them fight against the Gauna? This must’ve been a great victory for those parasites.Read More
Now this was something worth remembering. I especially liked this episode because it got to me, you know? I always like feel-good moments. This episode definitely contained quite a few of those moments.
The episode started out like any other; some unknown characters show up and haul ass all over the place. This time some little creature ended up getting hit by a truck. Yeah, he survived and seemed completely unharmed, seeing as he immediately started begging for hamburgers (he must be American). It makes you wonder what the hell is going on when something like that happens right in front of your eyes. I mean, that little guy got hit by a speeding truck and the driver had the nerve to go nuts even though he was in the wrong. That’s insane.
But hey, Leonardo got attached when he found out that those very drivers were scamming that little guy by making him pay three or four times extra for his burgers because non-humans usually don’t get served. That pretty much started off their entire friendship. And what a bizarre friendship that turned out to be.
It seems that Leonardo’s new friend has the ability to release spores that will cause every living creature that breathes that stuff in to forget what ever happened during the last twelve hours or so. Not at all surprise when those 2 monsters wanted to abuse that ability, but it was kind of heart-breaking to see why that little guy cannot remember his mother. What a champ!Read More
