Akame ga Kill! episode 17

Ha! I feel as though I have won a jackpot or something. Of course, god forbid me from having such luck, but still… Being spot-on with my predictions is almost as good. I’m not saying the story is predictable or anything like that, but things kind of became clear when they focussed too much on certain things.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 17 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.38_[2014.10.27_20.52.57]Poor Chelsea… I really liked that character. She had a ridiculously cute laugh and always managed to put a smile on my face, especially when she transformed into that animal in order to steal Mine’s cake. I just can’t get that scene out of my head. Nevertheless, she died a badass. She took out Bols by exploiting his weakness of cute things. She pretended to be a little girl that got caught up by that explosion in order to get in close for the kill. She tried to do the same thing with Kurome, which almost succeeded if Kurome wasn’t such a monstrosity, and ended up paying for it with her life, as I kind of expected.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 17 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.06_[2014.10.27_20.53.29]I must say that I never expected for it to happen during this episode. I knew Bols was going to die because of his position and the fact that he used his ultimate attack and failed. I knew Chelsea was going to die because she altered her attitude towards battle (because of Tatsumi?) and got too cocky. She wanted too much too fast.

Did Chelsea deserve it to have her head end up on a stake for all to see? No. I hope that Tatsumi goes berserk one of these days and finishes them off. I know that something like that won’t happen, but I can always be hopeful. Just as long as Seryuu and Kurome die and Leone makes a full recovery. I don’t think I could get used to a one-armed Leone.

Sword Art Online 2 episode 16

Watching Sword Art Online has really become nerve-wracking. I keep trying to figure out where they’re going with this. This is not about some quest for a special sword. I am still looking for a character that might turn out to be the new enemy.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 16 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.41_[2014.10.26_23.56.08]I doubt this quest will take much longer. The next episode should finish that if all goes well. I highly doubt that the remaining episodes of this season will revolve around Kazuto’s in-game experience. Don’t get me wrong, I like games a lot, as you could probably tell by looking at my screen name, but I don’t want to keep watching this quest business for much longer if it doesn’t lead to something important. Of course, by important I mean something that might affect Kazuto in the ‘real world’. I doubt a special sword from that game would help the guy get a job in a few years’ time.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 16 [720p].mkv_snapshot_15.46_[2014.10.26_23.56.21]I could not help but notice that one of the characters said that the quests in the game were infinite because there are infinite legends and myths. That is wrong. I don’t know if that was just poorly translated to English, but that would be very wrong. There is by no means an infinite amount of myths or legends. There are a lot of them, I agree, but they are not infinite. A couple of million players should easily be able to clear all of those in a reasonable amount of time. I don’t know… Maybe I’m just nit-picking because the story isn’t going as I had hoped.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 383

I find this episode quite amusing for one simple reason; the five Kage showed up after being absent for quite some time. They showed up and turned out to be quite useless, but that was to be expected. The five of them couldn’t do a damned thing against Madara, so what chance do they have against Obito and the Ten Tails?

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 383 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.12_[2014.10.25_23.49.24]The big chiefs show up and the new generation has to clean up their mess once again. Isn’t that how it’s always been? They manage things and at one point things south, at which point the new generation gets to take over and do the dirty work. That’ll end with Naruto if all goes as he planned. He’s certainly doing his best to ensure that all of his friends live to see that day.

Is it annoying that Obito withstood that combined attack from Naruto and Sasuke? Yes. Is it even more annoying that they’re both nearly rendered incapable of fighting any further? Definitely. But what will take the cake is how Naruto will gain yet another boost in power (probably his 11.209th boost). That much is certain.

Akame ga Kill! episode 16

This episode was shocking, a little disappointing and quite frankly a little bit annoying. It just pissed me off to no end. Let’s just say that this wasn’t the episode that I had hoped for and that the ending that I am hoping for won’t happen either.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 16 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.26_[2014.10.20_23.40.36]Quite a few things became clear to me. For one; Bolls is going to die. I am certain of that. Kurome is not. I can tell that much just by watching the first few minutes of this episode. She will survive this ordeal. The way this usually works is that the enemy loses at least one member and the good guys too. My guess is that Chelsea’s going to die. They focussed way too much on her habit to remain in the shadows, but she broke that habit because of her feelings for Tatsumi. Either Bolls will kill her or Kurome, but she is definitely going to die within the next few episodes.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 16 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.26_[2014.10.20_23.40.59]I have been hoping that Kurome would die. Her power is ridiculous, unfair and immoral. But that’s not why I wanted her dead the most. That has passed. The reason why I want her dead right now is because she chopped off one of Leone’s arms. How dare she do that the one of the show’s most lovable characters!? She really deserves as painful death.

I am also disappointed to see Najenda fight. She is nothing special. She only has abnormal strength and that annoying robot arm. Other than that she’s nowhere near Esdeath’s level. I bet that Susanoo, whose new battle mode I absolutely love by the way, would be able to defeat her in a one on one battle. Definitely not worth the wait.

Mushishi Zoku Shou 2

Hell yeah! I am so glad that there’s yet another season. I find the Mushishi series strangely relaxing. I fire up an episode and watch how Ginko travels that world of his in search of strange phenomena. Very relaxing indeed.

Mushishi Zoku Shou 2The artwork is still as great as ever. It looks so good and it’s incredibly detailed. The style itself is brilliant and I am pretty sure that anyone in his/her right mind wouldn’t change a thing about it. It’s too damn good to change.

I don’t think I need to say anything about the story either. There are very few people out there that don’t know about the Mushishi series. It has become quit famous over the past few years.

I do recommend this. Watch the previous series if you haven’t already. I promise you that its time well spent.

Plot Summary: Mushi; the life-blood of nature. They exist everywhere in various forms: micro-organisms, fungi, bodies of water. Sometimes, they’re even mistaken to be plants, animals, or spirits. But regardless of their appearance, they exist, nonetheless, living the only way they know how. At times, their actions can cause strange or unexplainable phenomena. Enter Ginko, the Mushishi (mushi master), as he continues encountering, studying, and dealing with the mysterious mushi along his journey into the unknown.
