DanMachi episode 03

This season is quite a mess. I have to reschedule a lot of posts for many days later because most of the good shows air on the same day. The other shows, shows that aren’t really worth writing about, air on other days.

[HorribleSubs] DanMachi - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.37_[2015.04.17_23.54.35]So Bell managed to ensure the safety of his beloved goddess. You could tell that he was fully prepared to give his live so that she could live on. She took him in when no other family would. They all saw him as dead weight, a parasite that would eat their food, use their beds and other resources. Hestia took him in and turned him into a promising adventurer. That is why I am not at all surprised if he rushed towards death so that that girl could continue living. That just goes to show what kind of respectable character this protagonist is.

[HorribleSubs] DanMachi - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.56_[2015.04.17_23.54.43]I replayed the scene where Hestia updated his stats twice. This time it didn’t show how much he had progressed. I decided to cheat a little bit finding the matching chapter of the manga and found out that his stats had almost doubled. They freakin’ doubled! No wonder he managed to defeat that monster. Doesn’t matter if he has a super-knife; he couldn’t have defeated that monster with just that knife if his stats hadn’t doubled. That knife may be special and forged by another goddess, but that doesn’t mean it’s wielder will instantly become invincible.

Saint Seiya: Soul of Gold

Saint Seiya will never die. These series (and movies and games and pretty much any other content) has been very popular for years. And why not? The story behind it is quite brilliant. But yeah, you can clearly see that the most recent series are just not on the same level as the earlier ones. They are just milking as much money from it as possible.

Saint Seiya Soul of GoldThey tried to keep the artwork as similar as possible, you can tell, but let’s face it; the first series aired almost twenty years ago. You cannot produce stuff from that year and expect to air it in this day and age.

Story-wise it’s okay, I suppose. It’s not nearly one of the best series out there. It’s not going to be either. But hey, it’s better than some of the other shows this season. I for one think it’s worth following.

Saint Seiya fans will probably enjoy this. I cannot recommend this to anime fans that don’t know about the Saint Seiya series, seeing as they will be missing a lot of vital information that would make this story a bit strange.

Plot Summary: In the Underworld, during the fight against Hades, the 12 Gold Saints gave up their lives to destroy the Wailing Wall and allow Seiya and his friends to keep moving forward. Aioria and the Gold Saints, who should have disappeared, come back to life in this beautiful Earth full of light. How have they resurrected if they were supposed to be dead? While the big mystery remains, Aioria gets involved in a new battle and when his Cosmo exceeds its limits.. a change happens to the Leo Cloth!

Kekkai Sensen episode 02

I feel like I am gambling by picking this show to write about. I like the concept, I like the story so far and I like most of the characters. I am known to pick at least one show that looks promising, but turns out to be very disappointing.

[Ohys-Raws] Kekkai Sensen - 02 (MBS 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_06.54_[2015.04.14_00.09.16]So Leonardo, the boy whose eyes supposedly belong to god and are known for being able to see every single thing, ended up joining a secret organisation known as Libra. This is fine. I can understand that you want to team up with other like-minded people instead of taking on the world on your own. I can also understand the chief’s decision to put Zapp on bodyguard duty to make sure that Leonardo doesn’t get into too much trouble, seeing as he’s their new important asset and hasn’t really gotten any experience in the field yet.

[Ohys-Raws] Kekkai Sensen - 02 (MBS 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_13.54_[2015.04.14_00.09.34]What I cannot understand is how Leonardo, with the use of his special eyes, managed to see how a ghoulish-looking bus disguised itself as a regular delivery bus and how to ghoulish-looking creatures disguised as regular humans managed to abduct Leonardo after they nearly killed Zapp. It feels like we skipped something.

Let’s face it; there’s a lot that we don’t know yet. This story is only making a little sense. I mean, what were those creatures? Why go through all that trouble? How can they hide so damn well in public? Those are all things that need to be explained before things start making a bit more sense. Also, I think those characters look and acted a bit too childish for my taste, but okay…

DanMachi episode 02

How could I not write about something this interesting? I am not always interested in medieval stuff that involved RPG monsters and whatnot. But hey, it works in this case. It works quite well. It works damn well in fact!

[HorribleSubs] DanMachi - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.25_[2015.04.12_00.29.55]So Bell acquired this skill that allows him to grow much faster than any other adventurer. His stats keep rising with every fight as though he’s been active for months. This forced Hestia to attend this divine party and ask one of her old friends, Hephaistos (that’s how they appear to write it), to force a weapon for her beloved Bell. All of that grovelling and begging just so that Bell-kun can get a weapon that will allow him to fight without any worry. Yeah… Now that’s what you call a damn good goddess. I wouldn’t mind having one of those.

[HorribleSubs] DanMachi - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.02_[2015.04.12_00.30.08]Bell is still very inexperienced. No doubt about that one. The problem with that is that he trusts everyone almost right away and that he does things without thinking it through. He will become a fearsome adventurer when he gets more experience, especially with that rare skill of his. He might become the best thanks to that skill.

Now, the guy, as usual, finds himself in yet another mess. A high-level monster is targeting his goddess and he sees it as his responsibility to protect her even if it would cost him his own life. This will probably result in Hestia giving Bell that new weapon and Bell using it to defeat that monster. That much I can already see.

Triage X

Sweet mother of god. What did I just see? It’s like Freezing, High School DxD and all those other shows where the fan service just completely takes over.  Usually that means that the story is going to suck badly, but I get this feeling that this story is actually worth following.

Triage XThe artwork is alright. The protagonist looks really interesting and all of the female characters have enormous breasts. Even the loli’s are stacked. What is up with that? There was even one character with breasts bigger than her own head. It’s like having two big heads as breasts.

The story seems interesting. A cold-blooded battle between a dark hero and insane criminals is always fun to watch. I especially like dark hero’s with a doubtful past. I am very interested to learn more about him.

Yes… I know… There is a lot of fan service. I am well aware of that. Still, this story seems very interesting. It has a lot of action even though most of the characters have breasts the size of life itself. This’ll probably not sit well with most people, but I think this might just turn out to be one of those hidden gems.

Plot Summary: Mochizuki General Hospital boasts some of the most well-trained (and well-endowed) nurses in town. But though these ladies spend much of their day battling sickness, their after-hours are spent fighting a very different sort of disease… Under the leadership of the hospital chairman, a handful of staff members and local teenagers form a group of mercenary assassins, targeting the “cancers” of society and excising those individuals before their wickedness spreads.
