Psycho-Pass 2 episode 07

I am once again running out of time. I have to keep one of today’s two posts short, so I have chosen that it should be Psycho-Pass since this episode was kind ‘expected’. This episode should be granted the title “duh!” if you ask me.

[Ohys-Raws] Psycho-Pass 2 - 07 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_08.24_[2014.11.21_23.15.01]I think the only thing worth mentioning is that scene with a little smidge of lesbianism, although we didn’t get to see much. The deed had already been done, you see. If they wanted an episode that would force the ratings to skyrocket, well… They should show what happened and the ratings would surely improve (not to mention tissue stocks).

All joking aside; we did not know that that enforcer was keeping an eye on Akane’s mental stability? So what if all the detectives that he used to serve went bad? That happens. I doubt it’ll happen to Akane though. She’s as unmoving as a rock. Besides, she’ll be quite busy looking for people that look like those holo’s. She won’t have time to go bad.

Parasyte episode 07

Hmm, I heard about this too, but I wasn’t sure if I could believe it. I also heard about part of Migi staying within Shinichi’s body after getting stabbed in the hart, and I immediately believed it when I saw him run, jump and hear things from afar last week.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.41_[2014.11.20_23.12.37]So Shinichi really did meet another person like him. I could not believe it when I was first told about it (please stop sharing spoilers), but yeah, he met a chubby dude whose chin has been invaded by a parasite. It is strange that I prefer that guy’s parasite over him, but there you have it. A chubby dude that tried to take his own life (and would have succeeded if he wasn’t such a coward) ended up with a parasite that took control of his chin. That just shines a whole new light on having one take over your right arm. I’d rather prefer that than having a parasite taking over (part of) my face.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.21_[2014.11.20_23.13.12]So we met this guy and we got to see how Shinichi dealt with the parasite that killed his mother and then took control of her body. He was able to fight her off without even breaking a sweat. I don’t think he actually needed Migi. He could’ve just fought her using a katana or something. That is why I don’t like the fact that she was killed by that new guy. I really think that Shinichi should’ve been the one to finish her off.

Anyway, Shinichi returns home with a lot more experience, a superhuman body and a whole new look. He got rid of his glasses and changed his hairstyle. We are basically looking at a whole new Shinichi because of what happened during these past couple of weeks, and I must say that I like what I’m seeing.

Trinity Seven episode 07

A very predictable, but enjoyable episode this turned out to be. It finally seems that there is a point to this story. It’s not about the protagonist and his quest to find and rescue his friend and to create the perfect harem for himself.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_00.47_[2014.11.19_22.31.19]So that busty blonde invaded the school all on her own in order to get even stronger. She used her lewd body to distract the headmaster in order to beat him, after which the headmaster, quite obviously, pretended to be defeated by her when he caught a little glimpse of her breasts. The sad part is that I cannot blame him. My jaw would’ve probably detached itself from my head in order to fall on the floor (in the anime world, of course). Still, I cannot accept the fact that that man did so little in order to ensure the safety of his students. He basically gave up to let Arata do all the work.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_12.15_[2014.11.19_22.31.43]Obviously, Arata needs to get stronger fast. He took control of Lieselotte’s magic (or at least that which made her a demon lord candidate) and is now on his way to become one of the strongest mages around. He couldn’t have done it without Sora, his grim moiré, though. Not at all surprising that she materialized into a teenage girl. Stuff like that is obvious in these stories.

Not only does Arata need to get stronger in order to find Hijiri, his friend, but he needs to master that time control magic in order to bring back Lieselotte. He always needs to get stronger in order to fight off the evil mages that are currently making their way to that school of his. Finally, a clear goal. Things should get better from here on out.

Grisaia no Kajitsu episode 07

Although it was pretty much the same thing, I have to admit that this episode was a bit better than the last few. Maybe because it focussed on a more interesting character? I might actually regain some of my motivation if this keeps up.

[HorribleSubs] Grisaia no Kajitsu - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.44_[2014.11.18_23.06.03]So Sachi, arguably one of the most dangerous maids in the anime world, was jealous of the other girls because they got Yuuji’s attention. This pretty much changed her personality. She became unstable and, because she wanted to please everyone around her, accepted some of the most unreasonable requests from her friends.

I was actually happy when Yuuji said that those explosives were pretty well made for an amateur. I was so glad. The thought of her being a professional explosives expert does not sound great to me. I’m just glad that it all ended with a happy ending and that Yuuji has added yet another girl to his already ridiculous harem.

Akame ga Kill! episode 20

That’s right. I knew this would happen. I told you! Normally I’d start another flame war when something happens that I already saw coming a long time ago, but not this time. I am very happy with this episode and I don’t think I would’ve changed a thing.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 20 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.27_[2014.11.17_22.47.58]Lubbock is dead. I knew it would happen sooner or later because of his attitude. The guy has a problem with women. He becomes incredibly vulnerable whenever there’s a girl involved. He suddenly becomes this gentlemen and slightly lets his guard down. I knew that he was going to be next when I saw him fight against those two freaks a few weeks ago. That is why it came as no surprise that there was yet again another woman involved right before he died. He couldn’t even see her coming when she tried to stab him in the back (literally).

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 20 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.14_[2014.11.17_22.48.44]Mind you, Lubbock, although he is weird and has serious issues, was one of my favourite characters. I prefer him over Tatsumi, actually. What can I say? The guy was a total badass that never stopped thinking about his next move. He even managed to take down that guy, Shura I believe, before he died. Now that was definitely a total badass that died this week.

And Tatsumi? Useless (as usual). The guy did nothing. He couldn’t do anything to help, he couldn’t do anything to get them out of there and he even ended up getting captured. I don’t care if he was up against a guy that could fight head to head against Esdeath. Getting captured (again) was just stupid. Now we’ll have to wait another week to see what Esdeath will do to him.

Sword Art Online 2 episode 19

Yosha! This is what I like to see. Enough with all the pointless quests and riddles and whatnot. It has been bugging me for the last few weeks, but now I finally see one more goal in sight. It’s about damn time, too.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 19 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.49_[2014.11.16_23.28.42]Poor Asuna. She awoke, mainly due to Kazto, from her two year slumber after a great ordeal that would have a very bad impact on your average mind. I’m pretty sure that a lot of Sword Art Online survivors need(ed) a lot of help from psychiatrists in order to get over the things that they experienced when they were trapped inside that game.

Now then, Asuna was one of those people. She experienced many bad things and has shown remarkable progress. She picked up her studies, continued her daily life, made new friends and ended up with a reliable boyfriend that would do anything for her. Now it seems that her mother, whom seems very pretentious, wants her to stop seeing Kazuto and do as she says from now on.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 19 [720p].mkv_snapshot_12.51_[2014.11.16_23.28.48]Man, I do not envy Asuna at all. She left one hell to wake up in another. What’s that woman’s problem anyway? So what if her daughter needs to catch up for the last two years? I believe she had a very valid excuse as to why that is. Just leave her alone to find her own way and let her work towards her own goals instead of deciding what she should or shouldn’t do.

You know, I am kind of hoping that Asuna will just run away soon. Just make her run away to Kazuto’s house. I’m sure he wouldn’t mind, although the same thing couldn’t be said for his jealous little sister. Either way, Asuna deserves a fair shot at life. She shouldn’t worry about impressing her mother. Just ignore that snob and do whatever it is that makes you happy.

Amagi Brilliant Park episode 07

This episode was so incredibly confusing. I have no idea what to think of Amagi Brilliant Park anymore. I know what the point of the story is, I know that we are currently working towards a goal, but the path on which we travel is just too damn weird.

[Vivid] Amagi Brilliant Park - 07 [2ADADE04].mkv_snapshot_01.18_[2014.11.15_23.40.26]I can’t stop asking myself if the park is finally open or not. Is it? I don’t know. I just saw an episode with a lot of characters on a hot summer’s day that were enjoying their day at the pool. I doubt that they built a pool outside of the park, so I am guessing that that’s either the second park that was closed or that the park finally opened and is attracting very few customers. On one hand I am hoping that the park is finally open, giving me the impression that we’re about to see a lot of funny stuff, but on the other I am kind of hopping it isn’t because of the low amount of customers that showed up.

[Vivid] Amagi Brilliant Park - 07 [2ADADE04].mkv_snapshot_14.30_[2014.11.15_23.40.47]Was it really necessary to bring in more of those weird characters? A seal pirate that wants to enslave people, but are all scared of that weird shark? Yeah… I don’t think that I would like to see many more of these episodes. I had fun because other characters managed to put a smile on my face (like that hilarious blonde dullard).

The park’s new manager saw the visitor count and even he is starting to feel some pressure. He clearly doesn’t like to lose with that cocky b*st*rd coming over to rub it in. Now would be a good time to get to work and come up with a way to attract more customers to the park. I just don’t want a “magical” solution to the park’s problems.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 386

Yeah, it is safe to say that the series won’t be ending after the 400th episode. They are going to milk this money cow as much as they can by the looks of it. I honestly just skipped through this episode. I couldn’t be bothered to watch all of it.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 386 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.39_[2014.11.15_23.39.37]You know, it would’ve been okay if those flashbacks where something knew. They just weren’t. I’ve seen and heard it all before. Why bother with all of that now? The last week it was the same story. Recaps and flashback scenes. This episode just didn’t contribute anything new. Not even at the end. It was the same old lets-try-to-talk-this-out-without-fighting-any-longer scenario that we have come to know and hate. Just shut up, fight this out and give us a great ending to a great series without dragging things out any further.
