Aldnoah.Zero 2 episode 03

There we go! This episode pleased a lot of fans, that’s for sure. I remember when the first season ended and a lot of nerds decided to take it upon themselves to troll anime forums about how terrible the ending was. That was funny…

[HorribleSubs] Aldnoah Zero - 15 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.17_[2015.01.25_23.24.21]It seems Slaine has planned this all along. He saved that count from getting killed because of a very specific reason. This might be just me reading into it, but I have a feeling I am right. There is simply no way that he could’ve saved his beloved princess on his own. People would’ve just killed him and the princess in order to continue taking over the earth. So, instead of fighting the unbeatable, he played it safe and stuck with them to win their trust and, during this week’s episode, to await an opportunity to seize power for himself. He saw the opportunity when he was declared that man’s adopted son and took it with both hands.

[HorribleSubs] Aldnoah Zero - 15 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.21_[2015.01.25_23.24.41]So yeah, Slaine is now royalty and has control over quite a bit of manpower. Something tells me that this isn’t enough for him and that he will continue this search of his for more power. He already has his beloved princess in one of his facilities and he will continue to protect her until she awakes, which may or may not happen (but probably will).

This little twist? Not entirely surprising. Slaine’s personality is pretty straightforward. I don’t think he would do anything to harm the princess, so it was only a matter of time before we figured out his little plan. I’m actually a little bit more curious to see how Inaho will deal with all of this. I think it’s about time he stopped using a training mech and started using a real mech that’s made specifically for combat.

Assassination Classroom episode 03

I hate the fact that I cannot disable the subtitles on Assassination Classroom episodes. I have to download a raw version and make screencaps of that one and if it isn’t out I have to try and find scenes without subtitles in them. That just sucks.

[HorribleSubs] Assassination Classroom - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.15_[2015.01.24_23.34.34]Anyway, this new delinquent joined the spotlight now that his suspension is over. I must say that he isn’t nearly as monstrous as I had thought. He’s just a brat that desires people’s attention and approval, and resorts to violence if people don’t give him any attention. Nevertheless, he did what no one else has managed to do so far; he got in the alien’s head and actually managed to land a blow on his first day. He basically used the alien’s rules against him in order to get what he wants. The fact he used those rules to the point where he actually risked his own life proves that he really desires attention.

[HorribleSubs] Assassination Classroom - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.03_[2015.01.24_23.35.40]Still, you are not going to beat that smiley face any time soon. You may take a tentacle of two, eat his stuff, say bad things about him and make him do stuff for you, but he will not break his own rules. He just finds another way to bring you down. It just makes you even more curious about what his true objective is.

We are going in circles. The students are trying hard to kill that alien and most of them have come to like him. The alien, claiming that he only wants to get killed by his students, seems damn near invincible and his reasons for doing all of this are becoming vaguer. The thought of him doing all of this just to prove a point did cross my mind, but something just tells me that that cannot be all there is to it. I really want to know…

Isuca

Wow, what a surprise. It took Isuca a few weeks, mainly due to it only having ten episodes, but it’s finally here. Ecchi anime is always welcome on my computer and this one is no exception. I watched it, I enjoyed it.

IsucaThe artwork honestly isn’t bad. The level of detail is not at all disappointing, the characters look pretty interesting, although the protagonist looks a bit plain, and the level of ecchiness isn’t all that bad. It’s not about fan service, which is a good thing.

Like I just said; it’s not at all about fan service. There is a good story behind this all. I only saw the first episode just now, but the story piqued my interest.

Ecchi and supernatural fans; eat your hearts out. I know I will be watching this and I know a lot of others will be watching this, too. I think this will prove to be an interesting piece with a lot of funny and interesting scenes.

Plot Summary: Asano begins work as the housekeeper for the old family of Shimazu, where he meets the ill-mannered, selfish, beautiful Sakaya. She is actually the 37th head of the Shimazu family in charge of sealing away monsters with Spirit Archery. Discovering that he has the powers of “true names” and “true eyes,”Asano becomes wrapped up in Sakaya’s battle with the monsters as her assistant.

Tokyo Ghoul √A episode 03

I am extremely happy that Tokyo Ghoul started up again. I went one season without Tokyo Ghoul and I have been missing it. I hope that next season I get a second Attack on Titan season and after that another Tokyo Ghoul season. That would give me a perfect 2015.

[Ohys-Raws] Tokyo Ghoul A - 03 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_01.02_[2015.01.22_23.25.36]Anyway, I am starting to believe that Ken might not at all be interested in that strange organization. He, to me, looks like someone that’s after something. I don’t know if he’s looking for someone or if he’s trying to obtain certain information, but he is definitely looking for something. He doesn’t attack like his fellow members do. He attacks the police and other humans in a way that doesn’t fatally harm them. He could’ve easily killed all those cops, instead he chose to prevent them from reaching their destination by flipping cars and whatnot. Sadly, the same cannot be sad for his friends.

[Ohys-Raws] Tokyo Ghoul A - 03 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_20.45_[2015.01.22_23.26.20]I wonder what the point of it all was. Sure, they were there to rescue a fellow ghoul, one of Jason’s henchmen, but is that all there is to it? Ken had to defend himself against two one-eyed ghouls during this mission. I’m guessing that someone’s after Ken and sends in strong ghouls to test how strong Ken currently is.

I am guessing that Ken really is going to start his own group, as I had hoped from the start. His old ‘friends’ took out a few of those goons and are making his way to him. I don’t know if he is aware of that or if he is going to fight them, but I am pretty sure he is going home with them at one point. Ken is not meant to be part of an organization like the one he’s in now.

Aldnoah.Zero 2 episode 02

You know, I don’t care what people say about the characters, Inaho is still my number one. Noticed how Slaine, Inaho’s archenemy, is always operating some high-tech suit? Well, Inaho always operates a low-tech training mech and he kicks ass with it.

[HorribleSubs] Aldnoah Zero - 14 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.16_[2015.01.18_23.28.17]It is funny that Inaho can fight against other, newer and arguably better mechs and still come out on top. He just uses his heat. He goes in for information, searches for a weakness and does everything just right in order to full exploit that weakness in order to make up for his lacking mech. You cannot teach something like that. The guy is a natural. He is one of those guys that puts information before firepower, and why not? Knowledge is the ultimate weapon. The fact that he managed to fight of Slaine in those conditions proves all of that.

[HorribleSubs] Aldnoah Zero - 14 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.29_[2015.01.18_23.28.47]A lot of people still don’t like that Slaine changed sides. They think he betrayed the people of earth by helping that count and that other princess. I am not entirely convinced yet. He might be sticking around until that other princes wakes up again. I think it’s too soon to say anything about his loyalty to the princess.

I, of course, am rooting for the soldiers of earth. Those Martians (if I can call them that) were the ones that attacked first by staging an attack on the princess. They were the ones that wanted this war. I could never side with those that willingly seek out war. All that is left is for Inaho (and this is a scenario that has been playing in my mind) to lead a squad of soldiers to destroy those Martian ships in order to win the war.
