Naruto Shippuuden episode 382

Here we go again. I hate it how things continue to go back and forth here. At one point Naruto’s strong and confident, the other he’s weak and helpless. That’ll be over soon enough though. I think the series will end after the winter.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 382 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.29_[2014.10.18_22.57.59]It annoyed me a little how confident Sasuke was when he materialized Sasano’o. Only last week did he look upon Naruto’s power with a disturbed look on his face. Now he thinks he can stand beside him as his superior even though he’s using Juugo’s cursed seal powers because he himself can’t use nature energy. Cocky fool. I really do hope he dies in the manga. I hope that from the bottom of my heart.

Other than the fact that I have always disliked Sasuke, I think that Naruto will always come out on top. He has the kind of personality that is always looking for answers in order to save himself and his friends. He and he alone can get through to Obito and stop him from enslaving everyone. Sasuke just adds oil onto the fire.

Girlfriend Kari

Incredible. This is so incredibly boring that I have no idea what I should say in this review. I think I didn’t even fully finish the first episode. I kind of just clicked it away near the end.

Girlfriend KariThe artwork is not really the problem. It is not at all good or anything like that, but it’s not so bad that I would go around flaming at everything about this show.

For me it’s the story that just makes me want to go to bed. It is boring. I have no idea what to think of it, I have no expectations and I have no interest in it whatsoever. You can clearly tell that this was adapter from some game; it has an incredibly weak story.

I already know that I am not going to watch this and I see no reason to recommend people to do otherwise. Just move on to something else.

Plot Summary: I have no clue. Some crappy slice of life show about a couple of girls and their every day school lives, I suppose.

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso episode 02

I knew from the moment I started watching Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso that I really wanted to write about this show. I almost gave in and read the manga, but I managed to hold on. I just really want to know how this is going to play out…

[HorribleSubs] Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.57_[2014.10.17_23.05.40]This masterpiece caught my attention right away. It isn’t one of those happy music-genre anime where things rarely go wrong. Oh no. This is filled to the brim with drama and the characters, from what I can tell, will have to face many more hurdles in order to succeed in the world of classical music. Nodame Cantabile had its fair share of drama as well, but I believe that this is going to be a little bit more hectic than that.

I mean, did you see Kaori play? She knows the pieces and she knows how to play them. She knows, but she wishes to play her own music instead. The pieces she could play during this episode were limited and they weren’t her own, so she decided to pick a piece and actually make it her own by playing it differently. Yes, it was beautiful, but she still did not win because that sort of thing isn’t allowed.

[HorribleSubs] Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.56_[2014.10.17_23.05.57]Arima is somewhat the same, I think. He doesn’t play anymore since his obsessive mother passed away, but that is obviously about to change. He is getting eager to play once more and now that he seems to have a little crush on that violinist… Well… It is only a matter of time before they team up and make a name for themselves.

That being said, I wonder if Kaori knows who Arima is? She must have known… The majority of the people present there knew who he was as soon as he walked in. That is just one of the things that’s being going through my mind ever since I finished watching the second episode. Does she know? Is she after something after all? I really want to know…

Psycho-Pass 2 episode 02

A new season, a new enemy, a new goal and new characters. How lovely. I didn’t write about the first season because it seemed like a longshot, but I am glad that I got the opportunity to write about the second season instead.

[Ohys-Raws] Psycho-Pass 2 - 02 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_04.49_[2014.10.17_23.01.15]Anyway, Akane managed to successfully capture that criminal before her colleagues killed him due to him having a level high enough for lethal use of those awesome weapons. Akane confronted him and made him see reason, after which is level went down so that they could take him out without having to kill him. This led to his capture and interrogation where he appeared to be completely insane. He may not have been seeing things, seeing as that accomplice of his really does exist, but that doesn’t change the fact that he was mentally insane and still became a murderer in the end.

[Ohys-Raws] Psycho-Pass 2 - 02 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_16.44_[2014.10.17_23.01.37]I find it beautifully ironic how Akane’s methods are being questions right now by that rookie. I can remember Akane in her rookie days. She, too, sometimes questioned the decisions of her superiors and often did things her way. That’s why I find it hard to dislike that rookie. She may be a little naïve right now, but she shows a lot or promise.

The one thing that I still find hard to believe is that Akane chose to remain quiet about the Sibyl System and continued with her work as a police officer. I would’ve thought that that would’ve been enough for her to lose faith in the system. That is why I love this show; things sometimes don’t make sense at first. It makes things less predictable.

Ore, Twintails ni Narimasu.

It sounded bad when I read about it and it turned out to be so much worse when I actually saw it. I honestly cannot believe that this actually exists… This is ridiculous.

Ore, Twintails ni Narimasu.The artwork looks alright. The characters look pretty decent and I have no real complaints. It could use a bit more work on the details, but other than that…

The story is what ruins it for me. This story is just the worst. Who cares about saving the twin tail hairstyle? I don’t. I certainly don’t want to watch a teenage boy transform into a female loli with two or three meter long hair in order to fight off “evil”.

This story is completely pointless, it is ridiculous, it is uninteresting and it is really weird. I honestly cannot recommend this. In fact, I have no idea to whom I could recommend this

Plot Summary: Sōji is an ordinary high school student with an extraordinary love for pig tails (or “twin tails”). One day a mysterious girl from another universe named Thouars appears in front of him. At the exact same time, monsters begin attacking the city where Sōji lives, declaring they will drain the world’s energy in the name of the Twintails. Sōji receives a powerful armor from Thouars called “Tail Gear” which transforms him into a female Twintail warrior named Tail Red.

Parasyte episode 02

Awww yeah! Parasyte just keeps getting better and better. I am not at all a big fan of dubstep, but Parasyte makes it work! Certain scenes are just so much better with dubstep in the background. Very well done, Japan. To think that this type of music, which was created in 1990 or 1991 I believe, has become incredibly popular over the past year.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.20_[2014.10.16_23.15.42]So the protagonist, Shinichi, is trying to get used to his new parasitic friend. It is noticeable how little he tries to use that hand. He obviously doesn’t trust that parasite, whom has been given the name Migi. Can I blame him for that? No. The first thing he did was grope the heroine’s breasts (good job, Migi) and during this episode he knocked a bully, whom was bullying Shinichi because he was jealous of his relationship with Satomi-chan, a few metres away. I am pretty sure the guy lost consciousness for a couple of seconds before he ran away screaming.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_15.02_[2014.10.16_23.15.55]Shinichi is having a very hard time with all of this newfound information. He know knows that people are being slain by those mysterious parasites, but he also realizes that some people just aren’t worth saving. He assumes that Migi will just help him defeat all of those hostile parasites, which is a terrible miscalculation on his part.

Migi is brilliant. I love that character. That create is obviously far more intelligent than your average human being and does everything in a way that ensures his survival. He puts himself before anything else and has no problems making that very clear to Shinichi. That being said, how long will Migi stay passive when Shinichi is constantly putting them in danger by seeking out hostile parasites? This will seriously be very interesting.

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso

Thank you Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso. You made me realize why I love anime so much. This show is so incredibly amazing that one season of this won’t be enough to satisfy me. The Nodame Cantabile series made me fall in love with music-genre anime and I am sure that this one will only make that stronger.

Shigatsu wa Kimi no UsoThe artwork is sublime. It is truly, truly good stuff. The characters look wonderful, especially Kaori, that blonde beauty. It is incredibly detailed and I honestly wouldn’t dare to change a thing as it is right now. Wonderful…

The story is good, interesting and it shows a great deal of promise. I can see where they’re going with this and I can honestly say that it sounds dramatically romantic. It is something that I definitely want to see.

You are a true fool if you don’t watch this. You may as well give up on anime altogether. It looks so incredibly good and the story just compliments all of that. It is a must see show.

Plot Summary: Kōsei Arima was a piano prodigy until his mother died when he was eleven years old. The shock of losing her made him lose any interest in piano, and his life has felt monotonous ever since. Then, when he’s fourteen, his childhood friend Tsubaki introduces him to her classmate Kaori, a free-spirited violinist. Her enthusiasm reignites his interest in music and in life.

Psycho-Pass 2

I am pretty sure that most people could see this one coming. Psycho-Pass turned out to be a great success. When I read about all that I immediately realized that a second season was soon forthcoming. After all, if you find yourself in possession of a cow that squirts out pure gold, you’d naturally milk that puppy dry.

Psycho-Pass 2Artwork; awesome. Summarizing the artwork with that one word is more than enough. It just looks too damn good.

I was surprised to see how Akane-chan has grown. I remember the fragile, easily influenced Akane from season one. Now she’s a badass, seasoned cop that doesn’t take no for an answer. Well done, Akane-chan!

I do recommend this. The story can be quite hectic at times, but that is one of the things that make it great. Watch the first season if you haven’t already and enjoy!

Plot Summary: Having learned the true nature of the Sybilla System, Akane Tsunemori chose to obey the system, believing in both humanity and the legal order. She’s part of a new police section and spends her everyday life facing down criminals. Unbeknownst to Akane, however, a monster who will shake the system to its core is about to appear before her.
