Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen episode 24

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.

[HorribleSubs] Utawarerumono - Itsuwari no Kamen - 24 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.24_[2016.03.21_23.31.39]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.

ERASED episode 11

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.

[HorribleSubs] Boku dake ga Inai Machi - 11 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.08_[2016.03.20_23.46.56]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…

Heavy Object episode 23

I’ll be honest and say that I have no idea what they’re trying to accomplish. It’s all been about the same thing; taking out each other’s Objects. We’re just going ‘round and ‘round. The strange thing about that is that I wouldn’t mind another season of this.

[Ohys-Raws] Heavy Object - 23 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_04.39_[2016.03.20_23.45.05]This episode was actually kind of obvious. The characters in this show really don’t like to kill when they can just as well ‘talk’ it out. I mean, they sentenced that old geezer to prison after they caught him and now he’s about to start a new world war after escaping his imprisonment. I don’t even want to know how he escaped.

The point is; he is going to use the princess and her Object to start a global free for all with Objects and elites as the players. The irritating part is that the boys could’ve prevented it from happening if they had just destroyed that guy’s power supply by shooting up the cables or something. I didn’t see a back-up generator, so…

Assassination Classroom 2 episode 11

The second season is almost halfway and I still don’t see where they’re going with this. I think it’s fine if they focus on the students and their classes, but I think it seems as though they constantly go out of their way to try and make us forget that their world will be destroyed if they don’t kill Koro-sensei.

[Ohys-Raws] Ansatsu Kyoushitsu 2 - 11 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_02.18_[2016.03.18_23.51.26]Yeah, I’m annoyed. It’s quite obvious that I’m annoyed. I’ve had a rough couple of nights and Assassination Classroom doesn’t seem to be getting much better. They constantly dance around the fact that it’s about a class of students that need to kill a man-made alien before it destroys the entire planet like it did the moon.

Now what do we get? We got more of that insane principle and his ridiculous methods to keep the E class at the very bottom of his educational system. His school needs scapegoats in order for the promising ones to strife. How foolish. The only good thing that’s going on right now is that they are finally targeting that lunatic instead of making it another battle between classes of naïve brats.

Dimension W episode 10

This is bizarre. They (tried to) explain so much and I still have no idea what the point of it at all was. Dimension W has a good start and it was fun to watch at first, but with every episode it gets slightly less fun and slightly more complicated.

[Ohys-Raws] Dimension W - 10 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_11.45_[2016.03.17_23.30.41]It’s kind of disappointing but even the ratings on pretty much any major anime website are slowly dropping. I can remember that Dimension W was holding on firmly to an eight when it first started. Now it’s barely hanging on to a seven. And why? Because they throw in weird scenes that nobody wants to see and because they complicated things.

I mean, afro-kun returned from his trip down memory lane and we’re still nowhere near the answer. I thought we’d get to see something cool when he lost his temper, but no… Usually when they build up a story like this it means that they’re planning one hell of a finish. Normally. But I won’t get my hopes. I’m preparing for the worst whilst hoping for the best.

Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans episode 23

Okay, I have mixed feelings about this episode because there was something that I was happy with and one or two things that I was less happy with.  I know that’s usually the case, but we are nearing the end (I think?) and I see no plausible ending in sight.

[HorribleSubs] Mobile Suit Gundam - Iron-Blooded Orphans - 23 [720p].mkv_snapshot_15.57_[2016.03.16_23.54.41]I’m happy that Mika-kun took revenge for his fallen comrade. That woman killed one of those kids without even knowing them just because she was ordered to. Killing people blindly is unforgivable and needs to be repaid in kind. She is now dead, her mission failed; the debt has been successfully repaid. That’s the good part.

The slightly less good part is that Gjallarhorn seems to have at least one powerful Gundam suit and brand-new super soldiers to pilot it. The underdog is once again forced to scurry along as the big dogs hunt them down. Nothing will ever change for as long as Tekkadan keeps trusting random characters. It’s an endless loop.

Gate 2 episode 10

What the hell is going on with this week? It keeps getting worse. I have been having trouble sleeping, I always seem to find myself in traffic jams and today one of my pet snakes has passed away… Seriously… What the hell is going on?

[HorribleSubs] GATE - 22 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.13_[2016.03.16_23.53.53]I can only hope that the next Gate episode will be absolutely epic now that the JSDF is finally going to take action by defending the Jade Palace. It shouldn’t take them long to take care of that insane prince without creating a huge bloodbath. Just snipe the living hell out of him or order one of the spies in the palace to assassinate him.

Let’s face it; things keep getting worse. That slave girl’s plan is going smoothly. Even princess Pina has been imprisoned by her own brother. A single bullet between the eyes of both that slave girl and the prince should be enough to solve all of their problems. Either that or the old emperor could be cured soon so he can undo all damage his idiotic son has done to his empire.

Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen episode 23

I honestly do not understand this episode. I’m just a little disappointed in myself that I missed a really obvious Easter egg all this time. I actually feel a little stupid.

[HorribleSubs] Utawarerumono - Itsuwari no Kamen - 23 [720p].mkv_snapshot_12.13_[2016.03.14_23.22.18]Haku’s older brother was the one that created all those life forms so that he wouldn’t feel so lonely. A few of them he created to look like relatives; his wife, daughter and I also think his younger brother. I just noticed that Oshutoru (in general mode) looks a lot like Haku. That could be because Haku’s older brother may have created him in Haku’s image.

I know it’s silly. Something as that has been on my mind ever since I saw the episode. But I just can’t focus on the fact that Haku’s still running all over the place with the gang in order to pursue justice. I’m not just going for the obvious by saying that the tactician is behind it all. I’m currently reserving judgement.
