Akame ga Kill! episode 21

Oh come on… I don’t really mind if they kill off less popular characters like Chelsea, but now they’re actually killing off badass characters that I really didn’t want to see dead. Night Raid keeps getting smaller and smaller…

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 21 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.28_[2014.11.24_23.02.55]First thing’s first; Budo died. Mine used up all of her power and may or may not have damaged/destroyed her Imperial Arms, Pumpkin, in order to finish off that cocky man. What bothers me is that it has been said that he could fight Esdeath on equal terms. Really? Is Esdeath so weak that she could get killed by Mine’s blast? Or does it basically depend on the kind of weapon one is using? Esdeath uses ice attacks and Budo uses electricity attacks. I can understand that Budo might have a bit of an edge seeing as water (and I’m pretty sure ice as well) conducts electricity, putting Esdeath in a rough spot. But no, I don’t think he could ever beat Esdeath.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 21 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.51_[2014.11.24_23.03.16]Susanoo is dead. Once again another great character had to be sacrificed so that Tatsumi, a whinny child that does not live up to his words, may be saved. That was not an equal exchange, even if Budo got killed. Susanoo is what made Najenda strong. Now she’s just another woman with abnormal strength and a fake arm that she can eject towards things. Not really much of a threat.

Night Raid only has five members now. Sure, the Jaegers only have four, but they have Chelsea’s Imperial Arms and Sheele’s Imperial Arms. God only knows how many more of those weapons they have. They just need to find suitable people to wield those weapons in order to outnumber Night Raid. Things are not looking good for Night Raid right now.

Sword Art Online 2 episode 20

What a big let-down. I was really hoping to see how Asuna would deal with the uncomfortable situation she finds herself in at the moment. To think that I would have to go back to watching them play that games again…

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 20 [720p].mkv_snapshot_12.45_[2014.11.23_22.40.25]Asuna has to deal with the decisions that her mother made for her. Decisions that change her life completely. She would have to change her school, stop seeing Kazuto and stop playing those games, which would also mean that she can no longer see her virtual AI “daughter”. All this in just a couple of days if I understood correctly.

What does Asuna do in order to deal with that information? She plays that game. She does not look for help elsewhere, she does nothing to change her mother’s mind and she does nothing at all that would otherwise change the path that her mother has set for her. To think that I would have to schedule two short posts today…

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.
