It’s not enough. One episode a week just isn’t enough. How about killing Dokidoki! Precure, Aku no Hana and maybe Yuyushiki and replace all those shows with a few more weekly Shingeki no Kyoujin episodes? That would be heaven.
So Eren is still in the game. He is still an ally of mankind and is now officially fighting for the surviving of mankind as part human and part titan. That old man may have spared his live and agreed to use him as a strategic weapon against the titans, but what happens when Eren outlives his purpose? He doesn’t strike me as the kind of man that likes to take chances, which worries me greatly. I’m pretty sure he’ll continue to make use of Eren and his abilities until they had time to rebuild and improve their city. Maybe they’re going to rebuild the city Eren grew up in as well, who knows?
Eren has many goals; he wishes to exterminate all of the titans, make a name for himself and to see his friends live a safe live. Quite admirable if you like at the big picture, but his main goal, in my humble opinion, should be getting to his father’s cellar. He’s bound to find some answers there as to why he can do what he does now.
Anyway, Eren is has become a key weapon in mankind’s survival. The general made sure that his best men protected Eren at all cost during his attempt to seal the whole in the wall. It was quite a shock when Eren suddenly attacked Mikasa, so I’m guessing his transformation didn’t go well this time. I can only hope that I won’t get to see many more of these cliff-hangers. The wait is killing me…Read More
Oh boy… I’m not sure I liked this episode. If I did then it would be because of all the wrong reasons. Oh well, I’m not going to mind the little things, but at least things are finally heating up. It won’t be long now before a war between espers breaks out!
So Mikoto hung in there… Wow! I have been going on about her inability to take on all of those espers by herself. I thought that she simply wasn’t strong enough, especially have wasting most of her energy on Frenda, a little girl that uses tape to blow up doll-bombs. It’s nice to know that the Japanese don’t like to waste anything, especially little details, because Mikoto came up with the idea to use Frenda’s leftover bombs to take on Shizuri, the fourth strongest esper in the city, in order to balance out her disadvantage. Stupid me, I almost forgot that Mikoto’s mind is almost as powerful as the electricity she manipulates.
So yeah, Mikoto decided to use Frenda’s bombs to attack Shizuri. Shizuri has the ability to retain “pure” form of electrons, manipulating them into a beam that pretty much melts anything in its path. The problem with her power is that she can only fire so many beams at once, which is why Mikoto used all of those bombs at once, not knowing that Shizuri had methods to bypass her weakness.
Anyway, Mikoto made it out alive. She learned about her mistakes, knows what her enemies are capable of and, if I’m right, will now ask her friends for help. Things should get a lot better now anyway, now that Touma, a guy with the ability to negate all magic, psychic and divine powers, has finally shown up. Next week’s episode really looks promising!Read More
Amazing! Karneval actually came on time this week. I wish I could describe the episode in general in the same way. Unfortunately, I cannot. The story is completely messed up and it doesn’t do the manga justice.
I am getting really tired watching the same thing over and over again. There are always characters in Karneval that need help, and it’s always Nai’s group that encounters them. Nai, being the good red-eyed rat that he is, will always help out these characters, even it means postponing his own quest of finding Karoku.
Imagine my surprise when that kid showed up, demanding that they helped him find some hard-to-find pasta restaurant. Was I seriously supposed to enjoy that? It’s almost like I just watched a filler. There are two episodes left, Karoku isn’t even in sight yet, but they think it’s alright to focus on some kid that ran away from home? What the…
The only good thing that came from all of this, if any, is that they’re finally going after Karoku. Following this story has been like walking in a big, complicated maze. There was always something that got in the way of progress, so, now that they know where he is, they’re finally starting up a search and rescue mission. I can only hope at this point that it won’t be too predictable, that Karoku doesn’t turn out to be a bad guy that’s luring Nai and his friends into a trap, and that he was after Nai all this time. That would be the worst possible ending.Read More
Oh, quite the cunning episode if you ask me. I have very little idea of what they were trying to accomplish with this episode, but it was certainly very amusing. I do wish they would stop with all those annoying scenes where characters suddenly get al ‘sexual’ when there’s nothing going on.
So they decided to focus a bit more on Emily, huh? I’m okay with that. It was nice to see how she got to where she is today. Sadly, not much changed. She grew up in the streets, she had no friends and she fought to get food. That’s when that man came to get her, a man that got her off of the streets and turned her into a killer. You’d think that he wanted to do the right thing by giving a little girl a warm home (not unlike your average paedophile) and some new clothes. The image of a kind-hearted man was instantly shattered when he introduced her to her Killing Goods.
It’s quite disappointing that they didn’t focus a bit more on that man. He’s a complete mystery right now. It seems that he, too, is somehow linked to Iwai. Perhaps Iwai was picked up by him as well when she was younger. It’s all very much possible at this point. In fact, anything is possible in Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge right now.
It’ll be interesting to see what happens next. Will Kiri get defeated again? Or will he somehow obtain his ancestor’s powers all of a sudden? I hope it’s not the latter, I hate it when things like that happen. There’s nothing more boring than a sudden power boost. Things like that need to be built up if you ask me.Read More
Oh boy, it’s becoming quite obvious that even the fansubbers are getting tired of karneval. It’s just not a high priority anymore. I, too, think that it’s been slowly downhill ever since the second episode. I probably wouldn’t even care so much if the ending turned out to be disappointing.
The only good thing about this episode is that Tsukumo survive, as we all knew she would. There is no way that they would’ve killed off one of the most popular characters on an otherwise declining show. I mean, even the ratings are slowly starting to drop on all the major anime websites. That just goes to show that people are losing interest.
I was hoping that Yogi’s condition would become a bit more complicated and interesting, but no… He’s completely returned to his old self. He’s jolly, sarcastic and always puts up an act to make it look as though everything’s alright. I really hate characters that make themselves seem unnecessarily weaker than they really are.
Karneval has lost its magic, period. It’s supposed to be an action/fantasy show, but now it’s leaning more towards comedy. I just watched an episode where Kiichi, a little girl with a huge mouth, started a fight with some kind of mutated goat. That’s right, but it didn’t end there, the goat was mad as hell, had rabbit teeth and was capable of flying thanks to its wings. I’m sorry, but I cannot take the show seriously when I see something like that. The comedy in this show is getting out of hand, it’s taking over. There’s a real need for more action, more mystery and a lot more answers to our questions.Read More
