K: Return of Kings episode 02

I still remember writing about the first season. I know it was somewhere in 2012, but I still remember it quite well. It had an interesting start and a very good ending, which is something you don’t see very often anymore.

[Ohys-Raws] K Return of Kings - 02 (TBS 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_14.34_[2015.10.11_23.47.44]How could I not write about the second season? Watching Neko and that busty blonde makes it all worthwhile. And this season seems ever so promising now that we already know that Yashiro is the Silver King and that the Blue King’s time is almost up. I’m also hoping that we get to meet the other kings as well.

K has simply done very well. There are two season and a movie and I’m sure there’s more to come. I, at this point, just want to see Yashiro return to help deal with that JUNGLE nonsense. I’m not going to deny that the Green King is brilliant by obtaining clansmen this way. In fact, it gives the blue’s and red’s free target practice. I just want to see more of it.

Noragami Aragoto episode 02

I have to write three posts a day now because the new season has just started. I have to write many reviews and that takes up more time than usual. That’s why I’m forced to keep this post short even though I really wanted to write a decent post.

[Ohys-Raws] Noragami Aragoto - 02 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_04.23_[2015.10.10_23.49.20]I will write about Noragami. I love it. But there’s one thing that annoys me about this season. We already know our bad guy. It’s that evil regalia that used to serve Yato during a time where he was known as a killer. I mean, I’m sure she’s just using that other regalia just like she used that other god in season one. She uses that regalia now only as a stepping stone to something greater.

Yato has to acknowledge that she’s a threat. She will continue to make his life unnecessarily complicated until such time as he either accepts her back or until he decides to kill/seal her. He has to realize that his old regalia has to be behind it all before others end up getting killed. I’m just curious to see how he will deal with it all.

Concrete Revolutio: Choujin Gensou

I’m not sure if I will be watching this. I read about it and I’ve seen several images and I started to compare it to No Game No Life (animation-wise). Imagine my surprise when I fired up the episode and saw what this show has to offer me.

Concrete Revolutio Choujin GensouThe artwork is really nothing special. In fact, at times I wasn’t really sure whether I was watching Japanese anime or some American cartoon. I suppose it takes some time getting used to.

The trickiest part of this show is definitely the story. It’s so easy to get confused. You have to really pay attention to every detail. The story might seem a little interesting if you think about it, but I think a lot of people will get fed up with getting confused by it all the time. I hope it was just the first episode.

It’s a difficult show to recommend, especially if you’re confused by what you saw. It’s a weird show and brings up a lot of questions. Half of the time I didn’t even know what the hell was going on. I suggest you could give the first episode a try and see for yourselves, but I suggest you skip this if you don’t like weird, confusing stories.

Plot Summary: Tokyo is flooded with countless heroes — chōjin — during the time of “apotheosis.” Their origin stories are all different. While some were altered by evil organizations, others came from space, magical worlds, or are fairies from ancient times or robots. But the Japanese government could not simply close its eyes as these superheroes ran rampant.

Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans

Hell yeah! Finally another Gundam anime that doesn’t revolve around little boys and their games or about chibi mobile suits that make me want to gauge my eyes out. About time, Japan! Finally a real mecha-genre anime.

Mobile Suit Gundam Iron-Blooded OrphansI’m really liking the artwork so far. I believe Sunrise and FUNimation are working on this one and I must say that I’m pleasantly surprised. Studios and artists always try to make unique-looking Gundams and that doesn’t always work out well, but I think they might have succeeded here.

I can’t say much about the story, unfortunately. But it does seem very interesting. That’s what I’m used to; straight-up Gundam action. The story seems pretty interesting and perhaps a little dark, which suits this type of show perfectly.

Ladies and gentlemen; this is a mecha anime. Nothing else is. Only this. When it’s about Gundam you know it’s probably going to be good (unless it’s meant for kids, in which case it could go either way). I am very high hopes for this one and I think all anime fans should give this a try, especially if you’re into mechs.

Plot Summary: 300 years after a great conflict between Earth and Mars known as the “Calamity War,” a woman named Kudelia sets out on a journey to Earth to speak for the independence of the Martian city of Chryse, which is under the control of the Earth government. Escorting her is the private security company CGS members Mikazuki Augus and Orga Itsuka. When a group named Gjallarhorn attacks CGS and Cordelia, Orga sees this as a chance to rebel against CGS and launch a coup. Mikazuki and Orga are thrust into a new conflict. To fend off Gjallarhorn, Mikazuki rides an old mobile suit from the Calamity War, powered by a nuclear reactor, the Gundam Barbatos.

Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen

A surprisingly interesting show. I wouldn’t have guessed. I read the summary and decided to look for more info because it sounded kind of strange, but it turned out to be quite amusing. Quite amusing indeed.

Utawarerumono Itsuwari no KamenThe artwork is pretty good. I’ve been told that the studio that did Akame ga Kill! and several other popular shows is also working on this, so that explains why it looks so nice. I am also loving the characters so far.

I think it’s an all-round amusing show. The artwork is good and I am liking the story thus far. It’s nothing amazing and I can honestly say that there are other similar shows out there, but I’m still intrigued. It’s the kind of story that makes you want to know more.

I think it’s alright to recommend this one. The first episode was a pleasant surprise. Perhaps because I set the bar a little low. Either way; I am going to see where this is going because I like the look of it.

Plot Summary: The nameless protagonist awakens to find himself standing in the middle of a vast, snowy plain he doesn’t recognize. Suffering from amnesia, he remembers nothing about himself. Suddenly, he’s attacked by an insect-like creature but is saved by a beautiful girl with animal ears and a tail named Kuon. She names him Haku.
