Sword Art Online 2 episode 04

Oh, look… Kazuto finally decided to show up after three episodes. It’s not that I don’t like Shino or anything, but isn’t Kazuto and his super geek-skills the star of the show? All that’s left is for us to see Asuna’s expression when she finds out that her boyfriend has been doing dangerous in-game stuff again behind her back.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.51_[2014.07.28_22.53.15]So Kazuto converted his old account from another game into a special (really?) account in Gun Gale Online. I strongly refuse to believe that Kazuto did that, and the he obtained that account through the government that hired him to track this Death Gun character down. It also wasn’t much of a surprise that Kazuto encountered Shino almost immediately. He’ll probably stick with her for some time until he encounters Death Gun, whom has set his sights on Shino next. All Kazuto has to do now is wait for the guy to show up whilst getting stronger in the meantime.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.33_[2014.07.28_22.53.46]Now, I don’t like the fact that Kazuto’s in-game character has such a girly body. I’m sure that’s the primary reason as to why some random guy was willing to pay a lot of money for it, but I somehow think it’s wrong. It’ll take some getting used to. His characters were never really ‘manly’ or anything like that, but they weren’t this feminine either.

What am I expecting at this point? I’m expecting an overpowered character that will soon draw away Death Gun’s attention from Shino. Kazuto has played games for so many years, especially if you include the time he spent trapped inside Sword Art Online, so he has a serious edge on a lot of players. It’s only a matter of time at this point.

Tokyo Ghoul episode 04

Do you know what I hate about Tokyo Ghoul? The pace. It’s too damn slow. Ken still doesn’t know anything. He knows nothing about how the Ghoul world works and has no idea how to defend himself or remain in control when his Ghoul side takes over.

[Ohys-Raws] Tokyo Ghoul - 04 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_10.15_[2014.07.25_23.32.39]I do like the fact that everything’s so detailed. A few episodes ago they focused on how Ghouls can’t eat human food without getting sick, so they have to pretend to eat it and barf it up afterwards. Digesting it could prove dangerous. Touka ate a bit what her friend prepared for her and she insisted on digesting it. She did not want to spit it out because it was her friend that gave it to her. Now that is impressive! They focus on how rough it is on Ghouls and what it could do to them, yet Touka went through with it. I wonder if she actually could get sick from a small bite like that.

[Ohys-Raws] Tokyo Ghoul - 04 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_20.43_[2014.07.25_23.32.56]So this guy, Shuu, shows up and wants to be friends with Ken. Never mind the possibility of Ken being the strongest creature out there. I want to know how Ken can be so incredibly naïve. He knew that he was following a Ghoul… Did he learn absolutely nothing from his encounters with Rize or Nishiki? It’s about time he grew up a bit.

I’m also a little bit disappointed in his lack of ability. He loses control quite easily when he is in danger (probably survival instinct), but he has no control and he has no idea how to use that power. He’s like a little boy with a hand grenade. Renji needs to train him more in order to prepare him for what’s out there. Ken stands no chance right now.

Akame ga Kill! episode 03

I am going to have to accept the fact that Akame ga Kill! is filled with corrupt and insane characters, which are characters that I really can’t deal with. I seem to take it personality every time something awful happens. I sit in my chair hoping for them to get killed, which makes me sound like a bad person.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.01_[2014.07.23_23.27.55]I think that Tatsumi needs to relax. He has a huge mouth and so little skill. He actually thought that he could somewhat hold his own in their group. He thought that their abilities weren’t that much better than his and that they only thing they had on him was experience. Boy, he learned once and for all that those guys live in a very different world than him. He saw how strong they are, he saw how determined they are and now he knows how they live and what they expect from him, which is to fight and survive at the end of the day. Sounds very easy, but that kind of goes away when you actually watch the story unfold.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.57_[2014.07.23_23.28.41]I’m guessing Akame, which is the most important character on the show I’m guessing (seeing as her name is in the title), Mine and Tatsumi are going to become very good friends. All three of them are very different, yet they all have the same goal. I’m guessing that some sort of diabolical love triangle will emerge as both girls might end up falling for their latest member.

Anyway, I sat here and watched the members of Night Raid fight off a group of enemies that tried to find their hideout. They were all killed without much of a problem, but Tatsumi nearly ended up getting killed because he couldn’t handle his opponent. He could only hold him down so that Mine could finish the job. How embarrassing…

Sword Art Online 2 episode 03

This season is really messed up. Most of the good anime air on the same day and I cannot write three posts in one day. That’s too much. So I had to spread it all out throughout the week. Sword Art Online gets prioritized a little, of course.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.06_[2014.07.21_22.33.34]So we learn a bit more about Shino or Shinon (in-game name of hers) during these twenty minutes. It finally explained why she plays Gun Gale Online (GGO for short) and why she has such a fear of guns. She was forced to kill a man when he tried to rob the bank that she was in. She obtained his gun and shot the man several times in order to protect herself from that lunatic. It was quite funny how she gave him that headshot. I immediately thought that she was meant to be a sniper, but that would be rather crude considering the situation. Panic disorders are no laughing matter.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.27_[2014.07.21_22.34.10]I was surprised to see Kazuto playing ALfheim Online during this episode. I thought we already passed that point? Asuna has been saved and she is a free woman again. In fact, she has finally become his woman now. Focus more on that or on Gun Gale Online and not on elves and whatever it is that elves do in that world nowadays.

I cannot believe they are making me wait another week before Kazuto starts in his investigation. He will have to train his in-game character quite a bit before he becomes a target. Shino has done quite well as a player and seems to be his next target. I’m already wondering how Kazuto will stop that lunatic from killing Shino. So many theories running through my anime-infested head…

Tokyo Ghoul episode 03

Not a very eventful episode, was it? I guess I kind of got used to the insane amount of horrific action that your average Tokyo Ghoul episode contains. It was still a very good episode despite all that. I learned a lot about their way of life.

[Ohys-Raws] Tokyo Ghoul - 03 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_10.22_[2014.07.18_23.42.13]This episode made me thing about which side to choose. I think I’m going for the Ghouls, but not because the main character is mostly Ghoul now. Think about… Humans eat pretty much everything and Ghouls only eat humans. We humans devour everything to the point of extinction, so can I really be negative about the fact that Ghouls eat humans? Isn’t that, in that world, their food chain? Ghouls are overall pretty wicked and horrible, but humans don’t lose out. A lot of them are insane and care only about slaughtering Ghouls for fun. That is basically why I picked the Ghouls; they kill humans in order to survive, but humans kill Ghouls because they want to remain in control of the food chain (and some do it for fun).

[Ohys-Raws] Tokyo Ghoul - 03 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_14.00_[2014.07.18_23.42.18]It may not have been very eventful, but we learned a lot. We know how those guys get their food. They basically eat the bodies of people that committed suicide. They are basically cleaning the place up if you think about. That way they won’t have to resort to killing “innocent” people. Not that it matters. There are more human beings than there are Ghouls. A lot more.

I think next week’s episode should mark the start of hell on earth (so to speak). Ken will get his mask, which will be awesome, and I’m pretty sure a battle is just waiting around the corner. Don’t you want to see what Ken is capable of when he’s pushed into a corner by a powerful enemy? I’m sure that we’ve only caught a glimpse of what he is truly capable of when he goes nuts.
