Sword Art Online 2 episode 13

Seriously, am I good or am I good? I knew right away that that creep was one of the people behind that whole Death Gun nonsense. I knew it ever since I saw that guy with Shino (in “real life”). The way he acted was just too creepy, especially when Shino didn’t seem to want the same thing.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 13 [720p].mkv_snapshot_06.59_[2014.09.29_23.28.11]So Kazuto defeated the in-game Death Gun, huh? It’s kind of disappointing that he needed help in order to take him down. I think a real one on one match would’ve been a lot cooler, but I am fine with this. This should’ve solved things pretty nicely, right? After all, Death Gun has been defeated in-game and Shino will live to see another day.

It should be over now, right? After all, Kazuto remembered that guy’s old Sword Art Online name, which apparently was Zaza, so giving that name to the authorities will be enough, right? They will be able to find the person behind the mask, so to speak. Kazuto can once again convert that Gun Gale Online account of his to that fairy king account so that he can play with Asuna and their ‘daughter’.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 13 [720p].mkv_snapshot_15.49_[2014.09.29_23.28.27]Anyway, did you see the look on that creep’s face when he assaulted Shino? That was really gross. I didn’t know whether he wanted to rape her or inject her with that poison, which kind of proves that Kazuto was spot-on with his theory. He kept calling her name as she pinned her down with a disturbing look on his creepy face. Do some men really become like that? I have to believe that this is just a fiction anime event and that something like that doesn’t really happen. I just have to believe that. Shino should praise herself the luckiest girl in the country for having a friend like Kazuto, whom showed up to save the day once again by fighting off that creep.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 379

This episode actually made me thing about whether or not Sasuke is capable of using Sage Art abilities. The manga is far ahead so I can’t remember, but I am pretty sure he can’t. I can’t remember anyone ever teaching him any of that.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 379 [720p].mkv_snapshot_11.59_[2014.09.27_23.22.56]Anyway, Obito became host to the Ten Tails and is giving everyone a run for their money. All of the Kages have been revived using the Edo Tensei, giving them immortal bodies. Having those bodies is quite the advantage, but not against Obito, seeing as his attacks render their bodies useless. He destroys parts of their revived bodies and they won’t regenerate. No more second chances for them.

They can’t even use regular Justsu anymore. Obito can only be touched by Sage Justsu now, which pretty much puts Naruto in the spotlight, seeing as he’s been thoroughly trained in the Sage Arts. Yes… Good times are ahead. I’ll just end this post by seeing that Obito would have been long dead if Itachi were still alive. Enough said.

Akame ga Kill! episode 12

Is it just me or was the WTF-factor a little bit higher during this episode? People didn’t get cut down or torn to piece this time, but it was still a bit weirder than usual. Will I ever get used to it? Well, probably not. Nor do I need to.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.22_[2014.09.24_22.22.18]So the team acquired two new recruits, one of which actually turned out to be Najenda’s newest weapon; a human Imperial Arms by the name of Susanoo. I don’t really like that. I want to see Najenda fight someone. Now she just got herself a mobile weapon that does as she orders, so it’s probably going to be a long time before we get to see her fight. She will be using Susanoo to do her dirty work. In fact, there’s a good chance that we only get to see her fight against Esdeath near the end of the show, provided Tatsumi doesn’t win her over after all.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_11.39_[2014.09.24_22.22.21]This new Chelsea character is something else. She has quite a big mouth and doesn’t mind saying what’s on her mind. Still, her abilities are very useful and could prove to be fatal and funny at the same time. That scene where she transformed into a little animal in order to steal Mine’s cake was priceless. I watched that scene about four or five times before I had enough.

I was also a little bit surprised to see Tatsumi used that spear-like weapon. I know it’s part of Incursio, but I honestly thought that the weapon would take the shape of a sword or something. After all, Tatsumi’s a swordsmen. I still think that that weapon doesn’t really suit him like it did Bulat. Not that it matters. Tatsumi will soon after to worry about fighting off women like Esdeath and Leone, whom also has a little eye on him I think.

Sword Art Online 2 episode 12

So I’ve had some time to think about Kazuto’s theory and the more I think about the more absurd it seems. This episode had no impact on that whatsoever. It was just too farfetched to begin with. Not that my theories are any better at this point.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.36_[2014.09.22_23.17.00]I will say this once again; I am pretty sure that Death Gun is that stalker guy that Shino regularly talks to. There are just too many similarities for it to be a coincidence. Besides, geeky guys are usually capable of doing desperate things when “their girl” is at stake. That’s probably why Otaku’s have such a bad reputation in Japan.

Anyway, did they really need another half episode to discuss their plans? They already know what to do; survive and take out Death Gun before he takes them out. It appears, if I understood correctly, that there can only be two winners. Coincidence? No. We know that Kazuto and Shino will make it through this just by that piece of information.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.31_[2014.09.22_23.17.31]How though? That is the question. Kazuto is matched up against Death Gun now, whom made his theory seem even less likely, because all ten remaining Laughing Coffin members, whom survived the terrors of Sword Art Online, could all be seen as accomplices if Kazuto’s theory is even remotely correct, seeing as Death Gun B, the one that supposedly sneaks into people’s homes and kills them with some kind of poison, can’t move at the speed of light and travel from one place to the other within minutes. It does not matter though. Kazuto doesn’t know Death Gun’s real name and he doesn’t have time to find out now that he’s getting his ass handed to him. We’ll just have to wait and see.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 378

Why push in a double feature filler? You won the manga a week to get ahead, which isn’t nearly worth all the effort, especially since there have been rumours going around about the manga finishing up its final arc, thereby ending the Naruto series after many, many years.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 378 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.01_[2014.09.20_23.44.21]So Obito became the host for the Ten Tails, hmm? Fine. I don’t agree with it, but it’s better than watching a nonsense filler that pretty much takes us back many months and shows us crap that we’ve either already seen or something that we don’t need to see. Nevertheless, Obito should never have been able to become its host since the Ten Tails isn’t actually complete. The Eight Tails and the Nine Tails have yet to be absorbed by it. Only small chunks of Chakra have been absorbed, which shouldn’t have made the Ten Tails complete, because by that logic the Ten Tails could’ve been formed without extracting any of the Tailed beasts from their hosts. Just steal a little Chakra and that would’ve been it, right?

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 378 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.38_[2014.09.20_23.45.15]Anyway, we are back to the same point where we always land when something new happens; we get an overpowering enemy that suddenly gains a power boost. Yes, Naruto can control more and more of the Nine Tails’ Chakra now, but it’s useless against an opponent like that. It is no surprise that Naruto, too, will get a power boost in the end in order to level things a bit.

Haven’t you realized that that’s pretty much it in the Naruto series? It always revolves around that system. A strong enemies shows up, the main (and supporting) characters aren’t strong enough so they become stronger in order to defeat the enemy, after which a new, stronger enemy appears and the whole process just starts all over again. That is one of the things that makes this show extremely predictable at times.
