Trinity Seven episode 04

I knew it. The protagonist couldn’t just become an almighty mage overnight just because he can copy people’s powers. That would’ve been awesome ridiculous. Yes, this makes a little bit more sense I guess. Doesn’t it?

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.29_[2014.10.30_00.00.48]Surprising episode, I must say. Or was it? They focussed so much on Yui and her bizarre condition that there had to be something to it. I suppose it would only be a matter of time before something went wrong, but for it to happen right away is just… disappointing? What bothers me most is that it seems that almost anyone can cause one of those disasters. It first I thought it was only Arata since he was a special case, but now everyone with strong magical powers seems to be making that list, which means that the headmaster and the Trinity Seven (and other characters like them) pretty much come to mind.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.01_[2014.10.30_00.01.15]So… Arata needs to meet certain conditions before he can uses someone else’s powers, it seems. I guess they didn’t really bother telling us what those conditions could be, but my guess is that the person whose powers he plans on using needs to give his or her consent before he can actually them, which makes his ability a bit less amazing.

What happens now? Well… I imagine that Arata has quite a few more days to enjoy his harem whilst more and more characters start to fall for him. First it was Lilith, then Arin and now Levi. It’s a matter of time before the rest follows in their footsteps. That’s the problem with stories like these; the general idea is all too obvious.

Akame ga Kill! episode 17

Ha! I feel as though I have won a jackpot or something. Of course, god forbid me from having such luck, but still… Being spot-on with my predictions is almost as good. I’m not saying the story is predictable or anything like that, but things kind of became clear when they focussed too much on certain things.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 17 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.38_[2014.10.27_20.52.57]Poor Chelsea… I really liked that character. She had a ridiculously cute laugh and always managed to put a smile on my face, especially when she transformed into that animal in order to steal Mine’s cake. I just can’t get that scene out of my head. Nevertheless, she died a badass. She took out Bols by exploiting his weakness of cute things. She pretended to be a little girl that got caught up by that explosion in order to get in close for the kill. She tried to do the same thing with Kurome, which almost succeeded if Kurome wasn’t such a monstrosity, and ended up paying for it with her life, as I kind of expected.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 17 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.06_[2014.10.27_20.53.29]I must say that I never expected for it to happen during this episode. I knew Bols was going to die because of his position and the fact that he used his ultimate attack and failed. I knew Chelsea was going to die because she altered her attitude towards battle (because of Tatsumi?) and got too cocky. She wanted too much too fast.

Did Chelsea deserve it to have her head end up on a stake for all to see? No. I hope that Tatsumi goes berserk one of these days and finishes them off. I know that something like that won’t happen, but I can always be hopeful. Just as long as Seryuu and Kurome die and Leone makes a full recovery. I don’t think I could get used to a one-armed Leone.

Sword Art Online 2 episode 16

Watching Sword Art Online has really become nerve-wracking. I keep trying to figure out where they’re going with this. This is not about some quest for a special sword. I am still looking for a character that might turn out to be the new enemy.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 16 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.41_[2014.10.26_23.56.08]I doubt this quest will take much longer. The next episode should finish that if all goes well. I highly doubt that the remaining episodes of this season will revolve around Kazuto’s in-game experience. Don’t get me wrong, I like games a lot, as you could probably tell by looking at my screen name, but I don’t want to keep watching this quest business for much longer if it doesn’t lead to something important. Of course, by important I mean something that might affect Kazuto in the ‘real world’. I doubt a special sword from that game would help the guy get a job in a few years’ time.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 16 [720p].mkv_snapshot_15.46_[2014.10.26_23.56.21]I could not help but notice that one of the characters said that the quests in the game were infinite because there are infinite legends and myths. That is wrong. I don’t know if that was just poorly translated to English, but that would be very wrong. There is by no means an infinite amount of myths or legends. There are a lot of them, I agree, but they are not infinite. A couple of million players should easily be able to clear all of those in a reasonable amount of time. I don’t know… Maybe I’m just nit-picking because the story isn’t going as I had hoped.

Psycho-Pass 2 episode 03

Our eventful adventure continues and I already noticed certain things that basically take away the element of unpredictability. I don’t like that. Psycho-pass has always been rather unpredictable due to its twists.

[Ohys-Raws] Psycho-Pass 2 - 03 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_01.40_[2014.10.24_22.50.05]Anyway, I cannot deal with this enemy. The guy is a nut job. The last one had a clear idea of what was wrong and was going about it the “right way”. This guy just cuts people open, removes body parts and manipulates them. He is truly worthy of the title of monster. He just shines a whole new light on the concept of insanity.

I’m also not a big fan of inspector Risa. She may seem like a badass at times, but she breaks quite easily. She thinks that she feels comfortable whenever she’s holding a dominator, one of those badass guns. I honestly couldn’t care less about her and wouldn’t mind at all if she were to never enter the spotlight ever again.

[Ohys-Raws] Psycho-Pass 2 - 03 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_12.14_[2014.10.24_22.50.27]I was kind of surprised to see how people reacted to inspector Akane’s report. They all think she’s slowly losing her mind and wrote that message on her own wall herself. There are no logs of anyone entering her home and doing that to her wall, and it seems that the owner is the only one that can avoid getting logged. It even escalated to the point where she went to see a criminal in a high security facility for advice. It seems that she trusts his judgement and thinks that he might be able to help her find out what’s happening right now. I guess the sh*t’s about to hit the fan.

Parasyte episode 03

Another eventful Parasyte episode. I must say that this one really got me thinking about what to expect from Parasyte. Quite frankly, I am not sure that I like what I’m seeing here. This episode was quite worrying if you stop to think about it.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.52_[2014.10.23_23.18.16]So a couple of parasites joined the big picture. I thought that Shinichi, having gained a little bit of power through that parasitic friend of his, would’ve become a parasite hunter and exterminated all of them. I kept in mind the fact that Migi merely wants to survive and prefers to avoid any and all conflict with other parasites if he can. This puts Shinichi, who wants to kill all human-eating parasites, in a very weird place, especially now that he has to deal with two of them, one of which may be more intelligent and experience than him and Migi.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.23_[2014.10.23_23.18.51]Okay, so let’s talk about this “A” guy. He is not on that woman’s level yet, but he poses an immediate threat now that he’s standing face to face with Shinichi. Will he win though? Probably not. I’d be amazed if Shinichi and Migi ended up victorious again without even a scratch on ‘em. I’m fine with them continuing their winning streak, but keep it a little bit more realistic (and I am using that term loosely right now).

And finally, that woman… She is actually Shinichi’s math teacher and knows whom he cherishes the most. She actually has a hostage that she could harm whenever she pleases, basically ensuring Shinichi’s full cooperation. She planned it all out and she is probably more experienced than Migi, making her a very big threat. This is going to get rough…
