Kekkai Sensen episode 08

Okay, I’m not even going to bother focussing on Zapp’s interest in some Burger King-wannabe employee. It’s just not really worth my time since that guy messed around all the time. I have yet to see him serious about anything.

[Ohys-Raws] Kekkai Sensen - 08 (BS11 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_09.05_[2015.05.25_23.30.27]But hey, that’s Zapp. I already thought that there was nothing interesting about Zapp or anything that even remotely relates to him. Yeah, I thought that, but then this awesome character shows up out of nowhere and starts hauling so much ass that he’s instantly tied with Klaus for my number one favourite character spot on this show. Seriously, this dude was so strange and yet so freakishly awesome that I couldn’t keep my eyes away from him. He looks weird, he talks weird and he fights like a true champ. Who knew that Zapp, a childish boar of a man, had a master like that? Shocking.

[Ohys-Raws] Kekkai Sensen - 08 (BS11 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_14.41_[2015.05.25_23.30.41]So this character whose name I failed to catch was fighting head to head with one of those blood breeds and defeated him without breaking a sweat. Sure, this particular blood breed may not have been “complete” during that time, but it doesn’t make that old guy any less amazing. He ‘pwned’ that blood breed and still managed to find time to put his disciple to the test.

Yeah, I definitely want to see more of that guy. I also don’t mind seeing a bit of that knew character that he was talking about. Apparently there’s another Zapp somewhere. What a dreadful thought. But hey, I’m liking this whole “Blood Dipper Style”. I could definitely do with a bit more of that, so go ahead and bring out that character.

DanMachi episode 08

Another great episode. DanMachi started out so underrated because it was a little ecchi and people thought that it was going to be one of those cheap shows that cared more about fan service than giving us a good story. Wrong! It turned out to be a great show and the ratings now reflect that.

[HorribleSubs] DanMachi - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.44_[2015.05.24_00.23.00]This episode turned out quite nice. Bell-kun has been training with the sword princess for a whole week and even she could not believe how fast his progress was. This is both good and bad. It’s good that he’s making a lot of progress that might just end up saving his life more than once, but it’s bad that others are now starting to notice that there’s something abnormal about his progress. People get suspicious when he can do things that someone of his level shouldn’t be able to do yet, not to mention the fact that he’s clearing dungeons that other players would take months if not years to reach.

[HorribleSubs] DanMachi - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_12.56_[2015.05.24_00.23.09]Have I said that I absolutely love the pace in DanMachi? Of course I did. It’s amazing. I can’t say it enough. They didn’t waste any time on bringing out that powered-up Minotaur for Bell-kun to defeat. That insane goddess was watching in ecstasy as Bell-kun slashed that thing up as though tomorrow would never come for him.

The sad part is that he almost lost. Do you know what I want to see right now? A stats update that would put him in the same league as the sword princess. It would open so many doors. Sure, it would probably make him an overpowered character in no-time (which I would also love), but just image the possibilities… Bliss…

Kekkai Sensen episode 07

Oh man… I am going to start another rant again. I can feel it. Don’t you just want to smash the protagonist’s face in sometimes? Honestly. It’s a damn shame that it’s 2D, because if this was real then I would’ve risked jail time to punch that idiot.

[Ohys-Raws] Kekkai Sensen - 07 (MBS 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_10.51_[2015.05.19_23.21.34]Leonardo went out with that girl’s brother. He learned that she has a heart condition and that taking her out to see a movie may not have been a smart move, especially if something had happened. But hey, he didn’t know. He also doesn’t know that her brother, a blonde kid with glasses, is probably one of the most dangerous guys out there, which brings me to the following point; Leonardo really is an idiot. He talks openly with everyone and he goes along with everything. It’s like he trusts everyone after just one short conversation. He is so gullible that he’s bound to screw up big-time sooner or later.

[Ohys-Raws] Kekkai Sensen - 07 (MBS 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_22.07_[2015.05.19_23.21.51]And that kid? He’s probably the vampire overlord or something. He sure seemed important when he dropped the charade. Does that mean that the girl is a vampire too? Or was the boy turned? Was his body invaded somehow? All questions that will hopefully be answered soon when a war between vampires and everything else breaks out.

Who will win? If Leonardo is correct about there being thousands of them then I assume, based on what I’ve seen so far, that those creatures will win. Of course, Kekkai Sensen loves to introduce new characters, so there’s that possibility of a huge load of new powerhouses showing up during the next few episodes. We’ll just have to wait and see.

DanMachi episode 07

You know, someone mailed me yesterday and said; “GameDemon, you know, the anime has actually already caught up with the manga for as far as it has been translated.” Reading that actually put a frown on my face. I almost gave in and read the manga. I am really glad I didn’t now.

[HorribleSubs] DanMachi - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.46_[2015.05.17_23.38.30]Quite a lot has happened during this episode. And you know, I really think that Seraph of the End can learn from DanMachi. The pace of DanMachi is wonderful. It’s all moving along so nicely; rarely a dull moment. I mean, that little cat-girl ended up joining Bell’s little family against the wishes of his goddess, Hestia. Mind you, Hestia’s not a mean goddess. She just doesn’t like it if other girls get too close to her beloved Bell-kun. But hey, nothing new there, right? Hestia has always been devoted to him and can be quite the possessive girl when she wants to be.

[HorribleSubs] DanMachi - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.01_[2015.05.17_23.38.45]But yeah, I could see that one coming already. What I couldn’t see coming is that he, Bell-kun, would be reunited with the girl that he has been running away from all this time. Yes, the beautiful sword princess, Ais. It seems that she came to return something that belongs to Bell by contacting his guild advisor.

Yeah, did not see that one coming. She trapped him nicely so that he couldn’t run away again before she got to talk to him. Nor could I see it coming that she would end up training him a little when it comes to fighting properly. Who knows? They might actually get together at one point if they continue to spend more quality time together.

Kekkai Sensen episode 06

Now this was something worth remembering. I especially liked this episode because it got to me, you know? I always like feel-good moments. This episode definitely contained quite a few of those moments.

[Ohys-Raws] Kekkai Sensen - 06 (MBS 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_03.26_[2015.05.13_00.26.26]The episode started out like any other; some unknown characters show up and haul ass all over the place. This time some little creature ended up getting hit by a truck. Yeah, he survived and seemed completely unharmed, seeing as he immediately started begging for hamburgers (he must be American). It makes you wonder what the hell is going on when something like that happens right in front of your eyes. I mean, that little guy got hit by a speeding truck and the driver had the nerve to go nuts even though he was in the wrong. That’s insane.

[Ohys-Raws] Kekkai Sensen - 06 (MBS 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_14.59_[2015.05.13_00.26.45]But hey, Leonardo got attached when he found out that those very drivers were scamming that little guy by making him pay three or four times extra for his burgers because non-humans usually don’t get served. That pretty much started off their entire friendship. And what a bizarre friendship that turned out to be.

It seems that Leonardo’s new friend has the ability to release spores that will cause every living creature that breathes that stuff in to forget what ever happened during the last twelve hours or so. Not at all surprise when those 2 monsters wanted to abuse that ability, but it was kind of heart-breaking to see why that little guy cannot remember his mother. What a champ!
