I hate that Gangsta has been rescheduled to air on Sunday from now on. I have to rearrange my entire posting schedule again because of it. I watched both Gangsta and Himouto! Umaru-chan today and I want to write about Gangsta more.
I liked this episode in particular because it taught us a lot. We gained a lot of information on the characters and their background. We also learned a lot about that which makes them so special. We all know that A is the best class and that there are other, lower classes such as B, C and D. What we didn’t know is that those people all take a drug that enhance their abilities and, from what I could understand of it, shortens their lifespan if they’re not careful. It was an interesting plot to begin with, but it got so much better now that we know a bit more about the story.
Also, I had no idea that Worick was Nicolas’ boss. He, apparently, is the contractor and Nicolas has to do whatever he says in order to remain a “free” man. You’d think that people like that wouldn’t take such orders from “normals” and you’d definitely think that they wouldn’t let themselves get oppressed when they’re as strong as they are.
Nevertheless, that’s how their world works. There are rules that they must live by and that boy broke one of them. I cannot help but become interested in those two women and their so-called guild. The thought of Nicolas going in there one day to raise a little help does definitely sound appealing to me. Doubt something like that will ever happen though.Read More
I have a great shortage of time and my whole schedule if messed up now that both Gangta and Himouto! Umaru-chan have been delayed till Sunday (one of which, Gangsta, permanently). It’s a pain in the ass sometimes.
So the recon unit decided to go to the nearest city to trade some dragon scales. I guess those wizards need money too. The problem lies with the recon unit itself; they will insist on interfering with other people’s affairs. They do this with the intention to help others and spread peace, but they’re really only making enemies this way.
Nevertheless, the captain decided to help that princess, the same princess whose task it is to dig up as much information about the captain and their stronghold as she can, in order to prevent villagers from getting slaughtered unnecessarily. The princess made the wrong choice in using them as bait. We’ll just have to see and wait what the captain will do now that the city has been breached.Read More
Okay, I’ll admit I got a little nervous there. I really want Momonga or Ains as he prefers to be called now to remain the overpowering character that he is now. There is a pretty good chance that that’s not the case anymore now.
We learned that there are others that can use magical items that belonged to that game. They can summon stuff, watch people from afar and god only knows what else. Ains had the advantage of being the only one with items like that, but not anymore. There are characters out there that know about that game and the items from the game. They are doing the exact same thing as Ains right now; exploring the world and making use of ignorant humans in order to obtain more information and power. That might mean that Ains is not necessarily the strongest.
And what about that swordsman? He used some pretty interesting attacks against those angel-like characters. It was just like the moves you’d see in your average MMORPG. Are there others like him? Can that sort of thing be thought or do you have to be born with that talent? There’s just too much that we don’t know yet…
I like how Ains doesn’t get full of himself. He is currently still the strongest so far, but he doesn’t brag about it and he certainly doesn’t underestimate others. He fights carefully, thinking that there might be someone strong to beat him just around the corner. That’s really good thinking. I like characters like that a lot.Read More
This turned out to be quite the amusing episode. People are still moaning about how this doesn’t live up to some of Ufotable’s other works. Stop crying and enjoy the show. I think it’s a really entertaining show and it’ll probably only get better.
I think this week’s episode was a bit better because there was a subtle combination of information about characters and their weapons and quite a bit of action. We learned, thanks to Alisa, that new-type girl, that their new-type weapons have the ability to devour those monsters and absorb their “energy” in order to turn that into ammo for their long-ranged mode. I think that’s absolutely brilliant. They don’t have to carry around all that ammo. They can just switch their weapons back into sword mode and send it out to devour one of those monsters in order to replenish their ammunition. That should make them a lot more mobile since they won’t have to carry all that stuff.
I’ve seen quite a bit of those new-types this week. I think Lenka’s melee mode looks cooler, but Alisa’s longer-ranged mode, that awesome-looking minigun, looks so much better than Lenka’s canon. That does not change the fact that Lenka, despite it being his second battle ever, performed just as well as Alisa, whom seems to be experienced in battle.
Alisa also strikes me as a little rebel. I hope I’m right. She refused the help from others because she didn’t want to abandon her comrades and she even whooped Lenka’s ass in order to prove her point. I like that. People that follow orders blindly are the ones that die first. So keep on rebelling as much as you think is necessary!Read More
This is actually becoming quite interesting. An angle that I never thought of is slowly becoming more and more real, which is actually pretty good. There might actually be a war on either side of the gate if this keeps up.
I say all that because Japan is the only country with one of those gates. That gate leads to a whole new world filled with all sorts of untapped resources that Japan could obtain and use to become the world’s biggest superpower. I simply never thought of that. I just thought that they were going there to eliminate a threat.
The idea of them becoming the number one superpower is simply quite interesting. Other countries will become nervous (or at least their leaders will) and will naturally want to prevent Japan from becoming that powerful. The only way to do that is to get them to share that gate or to go to war with Japan and simply take that gate by force.
In the meantime; the defence force is doing their best to accommodate their new guests as best as they can. They have built houses, baths and all sorts of things that drastically improved their lives. In a smart amount of time they’ve built an entire base from scratch. It’s so heavily fortified that even a dragon would have a real tough time attacking them. Your average panzerfaust or RPG might not be enough to kill one of those things, but all of those tanks, canons and heavy anti-air artillery might just do the trick. Perhaps a guided missile or two to blind the dragon first? The possibilities are endless… See why I said that the story is becoming really interesting? I have no idea what’s going to happen next.Read More
