God Eater episode 06

I suppose this episode was okay? I’m just wondering what the hell is going to happen now. The problem with anime that are based on games is that the stories tend to be rather disappointing, especially when nearing the end.

[HorribleSubs] GOD EATER - 06 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.36_[2015.09.01_22.59.11]I have to wait two weeks for this episode and I honestly expected more. A lot more. Most of this episode was about those two idiots surviving and getting back home by finding Alisa’s God Arc. Even that was rather pointless in the end because she couldn’t even use it when it was time for her to protect Lenka for a change. I don’t know what kind of nerve-giving pills she was taken before she ran out, but she’s less than useless now. The sight of Lenka acting as her meat shield was just sad. I’m almost disappointed that their beloved team captain showed up in time.

[HorribleSubs] GOD EATER - 06 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.15_[2015.09.01_22.59.56]This episode just wasn’t worth the wait. I’ll admit that I liked the atmosphere of them hiding in that hotel for dear life. It had this interesting post-apocalypse feel to it. But that’s not enough for me to be excited about an episode. Watching them run all over the place, mixed with a few flashback scenes from Alisa’s past, which ended up explaining why she went crazy when she saw that strange Aragami, and, of course, a few minutes’ worth of God Eater history at the end of each episode. We know how those things were created by now. We know that humanity, as can only be expected, was responsible. Just focus on what’s to come.

Gangsta. episode 09

I am short on time, which is okay this time. I have very little to say about this episode. I’m kind of losing interest in those handymen, especially now that I’ve seen this episode. What a shocker this turned out to be.

[Ohys-Raws] Gangsta. - 09 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_14.51_[2015.08.30_22.56.04]Nicolas might just cease to be my favourite. I thought he was this badass killer that everyone feared because he’s so strong, but now it turns out that he’s just a druggy. He apparently gets most of his power due to overdosing on those pills. That’s a big blow. Those two seem less and less important nowadays.

Nicolas and Worick went down in popularity and the guild went up in popularity. That busty S-rank came in and hauled so much ass. Nicolas couldn’t even do the job and she came in and made it seem so damn easy. It makes me want to know more about her and their organisation. I’m guessing that they’re more than what they seem.

Gate episode 09

Boy, this episode was just one big rollercoaster ride. So many interesting and amusing scenes that I’m thinking about watching this episode again tomorrow. Gate is turning out to be quite the memorable show if you ask me.

[HorribleSubs] GATE - 09 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.43_[2015.08.29_23.26.08]We learned a lot more about Youji this week. Apparently he’s quite a skilled soldier if I am to believe the rumours. Why doubt it? I saw what the Japanese did to the Americans this week. It was hilarious to see American soldiers get slaughtered by Japanese soldiers, even though they had the advantage of outnumbering the Japanese. America, like many other countries, want access to that gate even though it’s on Japanese ground. They, apparently, don’t mind using force. The whole world seems to be scared of Japan getting a hold of all those resources.

[HorribleSubs] GATE - 09 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.56_[2015.08.29_23.26.43]It was also quite noticeable how the princess and her companion have changed since they came to Japan. They realized that Japan is way ahead and way more powerful. But instead of getting scared they actually seemed to be enjoying themselves, especially when they visited a hot spring. Japan might actual win that princess over to their side.

My attention is focussed on Rory though. Yeah, the episode ended with her forcing herself on Youji, but we all know that nothing will happen. Youji will do the ‘right’ thing and resist her charms. What I am focussing on is the idea of Rory attacking those cocky American soldiers. I can’t wait to see what happens if they actually stand face to face with Rory and the others.

Overlord episode 08

This episode was incredibly epic! I am so glad that I chose to believe in Overlord. It hasn’t disappointed me yet. Waiting for the next episode will be a real challenge. It’s not like I can go read the manga; the anime is way ahead of the translated edition of the Overlord manga.

[Ohys-Raws] Overlord - 08 (AT-X 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_07.46_[2015.08.26_23.33.10]So Momonga’s allies were slaughtered like pigs by that insane woman. I liked that little twist about that little boy actually turning out to be a girl. It’s so simple and unexpected; I like it. But I think I can make one thing clear here; they weren’t friends. Momonga feels no sadness about their deaths. It surprised me a little to hear him say that he’s mad because his work went wasted. He wanted to use them as tools to spread his name throughout the city. I don’t know if I should find that awesome or unnecessarily evil, but I like where this is going.

[Ohys-Raws] Overlord - 08 (AT-X 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_20.49_[2015.08.26_23.33.50]I also kind of hope that Nabe will deal with that annoying geezer fast and show up with his head just as Momonga is about to fight that woman. I would really like to see the look on her face as she realizes that she’s not up against your average adventurers. They did a great job at making the viewers hate her guts. I just want to see her sweat just before she gets defeated. The thought of her realizing that she has no chance of victory after all that she has said and done is simply orgasmic. I really, really hope that I won’t be let down next week.

Chu Feng: B.E.E

So there’s no actual God Eater episode this week, which makes me really sad, but at least they didn’t waste an actual episode on fillers. I was actually surprised by this one. I thought for sure that I would end up hating this. In the end I found this rather watchable.

Chu Feng B.E.EI mean, the artwork is nothing special. It looks alright, I suppose. The characters look nothing special but at least the mechs and the tech looks alright. Fact is; I have seen a whole lot worse than this. That’s for sure.

The story is questionable. It’s a really dark story from the looks of it and I definitely like the action. People are getting shot and crushed all over the place. I just find the story questionable since the first episode didn’t have a big impact. I just know there was a hostage situation going on but I have no idea why. It’s hard to know what’s going on right now.

This is fifteen minutes of action-filled sci-fi anime. I’m not going to say that it looks promising. It doesn’t. The artwork is alright and the story is, at this time at least, pretty questionable. You’ll just have judge this one for yourselves. I for one will be giving the second episode a try.

Plot Summary: In 2017, a group of genius scientists achieve a remarkable breakthrough in bioengineering. However, all the new technologies are put into military use, beginning a new round of arms race. Vanguards, as the most significant achievement of the modern bioengineering and the most advanced weapon, are widely utilized in the race. Although vanguards are exceptionally combat-effective, their life expectancy is shortened by the nanomachines they use. Usually, most vanguards will retire from the army after a number of years in service.

The heroine Liuli has also consumed too much of her lifespan after executing missions for a long time. With only 380 days left in her life, Liuli receives a new mission, to rescue a hostage being held in a civilian facility. It is without doubt a difficult mission for a vanguard like Liuli, who only knows how to kill and battle. However, Liuli obediently decides to accept the mission in the end.

During the mission, Liuli surprisingly finds that the man who holds the hostage was once a vanguard. The former vanguard Zhongrong Zhou cries and asks the government to hand over the son of Eden. As a vanguard, Liuli feels deep contempt against Zhou. To eliminate the scum of the vanguards, a battle between two vanguards begins…
