Naruto Shippuuden episode 387

No Amagi Brilliant Park yet, so this post will have to do for today. I don’t understand why it’s so late. I can only hope that this was a one-time thing and that things will return back to “normal” next week. Short Naruto Shippuuden posts just won’t do.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 387 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.00_[2014.11.22_22.55.28]Another episode with a lot of flashback and recap scenes. Sure, there was a bit more progress than last week, but I cannot help but get a bit annoyed at those damned flashback scenes. Even more so when it’s about uninteresting characters. The manga ended weeks ago, so just get to it. Stop milking this golden cow and give this show the ending it deserves.

Anyway, Obito has been dealt with. He has been defeated and was left lying on the ground with a hole in his chest. I’ll try not to full this post with spoilers because I know that not everyone has been following the manga, but I would like nothing more than to see the remaining episodes without having to be bothered by flashback and recap scenes.

Akame ga Kill! episode 20

That’s right. I knew this would happen. I told you! Normally I’d start another flame war when something happens that I already saw coming a long time ago, but not this time. I am very happy with this episode and I don’t think I would’ve changed a thing.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 20 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.27_[2014.11.17_22.47.58]Lubbock is dead. I knew it would happen sooner or later because of his attitude. The guy has a problem with women. He becomes incredibly vulnerable whenever there’s a girl involved. He suddenly becomes this gentlemen and slightly lets his guard down. I knew that he was going to be next when I saw him fight against those two freaks a few weeks ago. That is why it came as no surprise that there was yet again another woman involved right before he died. He couldn’t even see her coming when she tried to stab him in the back (literally).

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 20 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.14_[2014.11.17_22.48.44]Mind you, Lubbock, although he is weird and has serious issues, was one of my favourite characters. I prefer him over Tatsumi, actually. What can I say? The guy was a total badass that never stopped thinking about his next move. He even managed to take down that guy, Shura I believe, before he died. Now that was definitely a total badass that died this week.

And Tatsumi? Useless (as usual). The guy did nothing. He couldn’t do anything to help, he couldn’t do anything to get them out of there and he even ended up getting captured. I don’t care if he was up against a guy that could fight head to head against Esdeath. Getting captured (again) was just stupid. Now we’ll have to wait another week to see what Esdeath will do to him.

Sword Art Online 2 episode 19

Yosha! This is what I like to see. Enough with all the pointless quests and riddles and whatnot. It has been bugging me for the last few weeks, but now I finally see one more goal in sight. It’s about damn time, too.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 19 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.49_[2014.11.16_23.28.42]Poor Asuna. She awoke, mainly due to Kazto, from her two year slumber after a great ordeal that would have a very bad impact on your average mind. I’m pretty sure that a lot of Sword Art Online survivors need(ed) a lot of help from psychiatrists in order to get over the things that they experienced when they were trapped inside that game.

Now then, Asuna was one of those people. She experienced many bad things and has shown remarkable progress. She picked up her studies, continued her daily life, made new friends and ended up with a reliable boyfriend that would do anything for her. Now it seems that her mother, whom seems very pretentious, wants her to stop seeing Kazuto and do as she says from now on.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 19 [720p].mkv_snapshot_12.51_[2014.11.16_23.28.48]Man, I do not envy Asuna at all. She left one hell to wake up in another. What’s that woman’s problem anyway? So what if her daughter needs to catch up for the last two years? I believe she had a very valid excuse as to why that is. Just leave her alone to find her own way and let her work towards her own goals instead of deciding what she should or shouldn’t do.

You know, I am kind of hoping that Asuna will just run away soon. Just make her run away to Kazuto’s house. I’m sure he wouldn’t mind, although the same thing couldn’t be said for his jealous little sister. Either way, Asuna deserves a fair shot at life. She shouldn’t worry about impressing her mother. Just ignore that snob and do whatever it is that makes you happy.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 386

Yeah, it is safe to say that the series won’t be ending after the 400th episode. They are going to milk this money cow as much as they can by the looks of it. I honestly just skipped through this episode. I couldn’t be bothered to watch all of it.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 386 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.39_[2014.11.15_23.39.37]You know, it would’ve been okay if those flashbacks where something knew. They just weren’t. I’ve seen and heard it all before. Why bother with all of that now? The last week it was the same story. Recaps and flashback scenes. This episode just didn’t contribute anything new. Not even at the end. It was the same old lets-try-to-talk-this-out-without-fighting-any-longer scenario that we have come to know and hate. Just shut up, fight this out and give us a great ending to a great series without dragging things out any further.

Akame ga Kill! episode 19

See? Do you finally see? God may actually exist! I am joking, of course. God, in my eyes, has the same status as Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck; all fictional and made by man. Nevertheless, this episode was definitely one to be remembered.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 19 [720p].mkv_snapshot_06.41_[2014.11.10_23.46.05]It started out really casual, too. Nothing was wrong. Tatsumi was once again making promises that he probably won’t keep any itme soon and the rest of the group were planning their next moves. Nothing wrong with that. If you are going to assassinate an evil preacher that turns women into his sex slaves, than it’s a given that you need careful planning if you are up against the Jaegers and the last of the four “great demons”.

Was I surprised that Tatsumi managed to handle her on his own? Quite. I did not think he had it in him. Mind you, he did quite a lot of running. For a second there I thought he would run away again. But no, he held his own and actually managed to defeat that girl and save Mine just in time. He was actually a hero this time.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 19 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.57_[2014.11.10_23.46.36]Now then, on to something great! Seryuu is dead! Not only is Seryuu dead, but Mine actually defeated her Imperial Arms, Coro, before he defeated her. Her battle was really tough and unfair, but she held her own and defeated two strong enemies on her own. That is why Mine cannot be killed off. She is too damn adorable and good.

Is Lubbock going to die next week? I don’t know. Next week’s preview sure gives that impression, but he could just end up being teleported to some location, just like with Tatsumi and Esdeath. I’m more interested in the fight between Najena, Susanoo and Esdeath. I already know that Lubbock is going to die at some point, but I have no idea which boss is going to win.
