Akame ga Kill! episode 08

Jesus, this is going fast. This show is completely insane. The author creates all these interesting characters and later kills them off one by one. How messed up is that? It makes it damn near impossible to predict the next step.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.50_[2014.08.27_16.19.50]Sheele went first. She died during her fight against Seryuu and her insane little friend. Now it’s Bulet, self-proclaimed hero and first class fighter, that gives up his life in a fight against his old general. The old man seems to have given up on their justice system after they tried to have him killed. That ice queen, Esdeath, sent three of her best men after Night Raid and all three ended up getting killed. Night Raid ended up losing yet another powerful member, which in turn ended up making Tatsumi stronger than ever, now that he has inherited Bulat’s Imperial Arms.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.50_[2014.08.27_16.20.06]The thought of Tatsumi shouting “Incursio!” during every episode is kind of strange, don’t you think? It’s obvious that Tatsumi will be transforming all over the place, but he doubt that he, too, will be fighting off enemies with some kind of spear-type weapon. I for one can’t see him wielding any weapon other than a sword.

I wonder how the other Night Raid members will react to this news. They lost yet another member in few days’ time. Will they even have time to mourn his death now that more enemies keep popping up all over the place? I don’t know. I just can’t wait to see Najenda join the fight. She has yet to do any real fighting even though she’s their leader. It’s about time she showed us some of her moves…

Sword Art Online 2 episode 08

Ah, this sucks! I was writing this post yesterday when suddenly a blackout decided to ruin my plans to write and schedule this post, forcing me to start this post all over again because I couldn’t save it. Well, I do it willingly since this particular episode was so damn good.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.01_[2014.08.26_13.39.16]The pace suddenly just picked up. I thought this was going to be another one of those slow episodes where Kazuto made his way to the finals, but no… This turned out to be a lot more than that. I’m not sure if I have this right, but I think this may actually be the finals. They put thirty something players in a big field and let them fight it out amongst themselves. One player is supposed to remain standing (if I understood correctly) and come out as the sole winner of this match. Normally I wouldn’t by fazed by this, but I am getting quite excited since Kazuto, Shino and Death Gun are all on the map. This means that only one of them will win, right?

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.52_[2014.08.26_13.39.47]Kazuto is still worried about that guy. Does he really have the power to kill someone with some in-game weapon? He doesn’t know, nor is he willing to take any risks. He told Shino to stop Death Gun from killing that guy because he thinks that his victim might die in real life, too. Kazuto is really taking this seriously. The fact that Death Gun is an old Sword Art Online player from a player killing guild must’ve sealed the deal for Kazuto. He’s completely serious and has been acting like a nervous, panicky little brat since he had that talk with Death Gun. I’m quite interested to see how he will deal with this situation next week.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 373

Meh. That one word is the best way I can describe this episode. No surprise in my decision to keep this post short again. For all the Naruto fans out there; the manga is much, much better than the anime. They tend to overstuff the anime with useless recaps, you see.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 373 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.25_[2014.08.23_23.02.22]It was all going so very well… The Hokage’s were hauling ass, their barrier held the Ten Tails’ attack and for a second there it seemed as though the First Hokage was about to take on Madara, whom ended up declining because he hates the idea of fighting a clone, which I thought was rather cool. He may be an overpowered bad guy, obviously, but he does have a sense of pride.

Things soon got screwed up when Sakura ended stealing the spotlight. I never really liked Sakura. I always thought she was naïve, hypocritical and petty. I’ve always seen her as the third wheel of Team Seven. It was always Naruto or Sasuke that had to save her in the end. To think that I was watching a lot of Sakura recaps… What a damn shame.

Akame ga Kill! episode 07

Oh wow, another amazing Akame ga Kill! episode! I am truly glad that I chose this over DRAMAtical Murder. The latter has been so boring lately that I’m actually thinking about dropping it if the next episode doesn’t change things.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.52_[2014.08.20_23.40.32]Akame ga Kill! does not have that problem. It is exciting and interesting. I sat on the edge of my chair when that infamous general set loose her three dogs of war upon the unsuspecting Night Raid. Their approach was simple and quite underhanded, but quite effective nonetheless. They lured out Night Raid by killing important, known people and passed it off as Night Raid’s doing. That way people would come to hate Night Raid (even more). It would only be a matter of time before Night Raid makes their appearance to stop them from doing any more damage.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.23_[2014.08.20_23.40.57]I wonder why they still send Tatsumi out on missions. They once again set him up against opponents that wield those almighty weapons. Three of them this time. It is almost as though they want him dead. They know that he stands no chance against opponents like that. Even Tatsumi himself knows that he stands no chance.

That just brings me to a true hero; Bulat. That guy is insane. He just pushed back two of them, killed the third one and saved Tatsumi from getting killed. He did all that in just one attack. So what if he’s up against the general that he used to serve? If he’s still alive then that means that he has given in to corruption. I hope Bulat realizes that and does to him what he did to that other guy.

Sword Art Online 2 episode 07

This second Sword Art Online season is full of surprises. This is one of those moments where I’m truly happy that I didn’t resort to reading the manga. I just knew that another season was right around the corner.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.30_[2014.08.18_22.35.42]So Kazuto’s little sister and girlfriend already knew about his little secret. Well, some of it. They all found out that Kazuto converted his ALfheim Online account to a Gun Gale Online account. I knew his little sister would be clingy and ask question after question, but I thought for sure that Asuna would be a little more aggressive. She just accepted it… How strange.

So Shino is finally starting to realize that she has a little crush on Kazuto, huh? That’s just predictable. I knew this would happen from the moment they introduced that character. She is falling for Kazuto and that guy, Kyouji or Spiegel, is probably going to lose his mind because of it. I foresee a lot of bad things right now.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.54_[2014.08.18_22.36.19]I have so many theories right now about both Kazuto and Shino and the mysterious Death Gun. Quite frankly, I am putting my money on two characters right now. My number one pick would be that insane Sword Art Online player that took charge of that player killing fest that killed so many people. My second pick would have to be the aforementioned Kyouji (or Spiegel as he’s called in-game). It’s only natural that it’s possible to have more than one account at the same time, and he seems like a creepy stalker that has set his sights on Shino-chan. I don’t know why, but I think he might have something to do with that Death Gun character.
