Yoru no Yatterman

This is like reviewing Rolling Girls; it is hard to find the right words for something that didn’t really interest me very much. Sure, I am going to give the second episode a try as well, unlike with Rolling Girls, but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s not extremely interesting.

Yoru no YattermanThe artwork is decent. The characters look unique alright and the level of detail is not all that bad. It may have a lot of room for improvement, but something tells me that this was specifically made this way to suit the storyline.

Speaking of which; what did I see here? It’s not a very unique story if I think about it. The only reason why I want to give the second episode a try as well is because I am kind of curious about the heroine being a “bad girl” aka thief instead of a “good girl” aka hero, although that image might change in the future.

This is really one of those shows that you need to check out for yourselves. It is very strange and perhaps a little childish, but I simply suggest you try out the first episode. Who knows? You may end up liking it.

Plot Summary: The Yatterman took control of the Dorombo Gang after a long fight, but the Yatterman Kingdom they created is not at peace. The kingdom is impoverished, and the people lament their tyrannical government. Standing against them is Leopard, a descendent of Yatterman’s defeated rivals. She inherits the name Doronjo and becomes her successor, entering the Yatterman Kingdom with the intent of taken on the despised Yatterman.

Dog Days 3

Only a matter of time before Dog Days got yet another season. The first two were rather successful and the demand for more was pretty big. If this season does as good as the last two then a fourth season is definitely not out of the question.

Dog Days 3The artwork is what I liked most. I watched both season of Dog Days so I can say with utmost confidence that the artwork is really nice. The characters look interesting and cute, the world in which the story unfolds looks really good and the level of detail is surprisingly high. I have no complaints about the artwork.

The story is so simple that I would even let my little niece watch this stuff. It is harmless. It’s just twenty minutes of good, harmless fun each week. Nothing wrong with that.

Do I recommend this? Sure. I wouldn’t want to write about it because I wouldn’t know what to say, but that doesn’t stop me from watching it. I suggest you give it a try.

Plot Summary: In the land of Fronaldo, the Republic of Biscotti has been aggressively attacked by the Lion Kingdom of Galette. Facing potential defeat, Princess Millhiore summons a hero who can save the country. What she gets is Izumi Shinku, a middle-school boy from Japan. Awaiting him in Fronaldo is the task of becoming hero enough to defeat his enemies while learning the peculiar rules of battle in this strange new world.

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders 2

We all knew this would get another season. They ended the first one with a cliffhanger and already gave us some information about the second season, so yeah… Obvious.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Stardust Crusaders 2I think Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure is well-known for its artwork. You can watch TV and zap through channels, yet you could always pick out this show because of its artwork. That is definitely a good thing.

I am usually not a huge fan of these series, but I really enjoyed the first season and I probably will enjoy the second one as well.

So yeah, I suggest you give this a try. It may not be the kind of artwork you have become accustomed to, but it is still pretty darn nice. And the story doesn’t disappoint either.

Plot Summary: The year is 1987 and 17-year-old Jotaro Kujo finds himself suddenly plagued by a ghost-like entity. Jotaro’s grandfather Joseph Joestar, a veteran of a fight to save humanity fifty years prior, arrives with his own supernatural aura and explains that this power, known as a “Stand,” physically manifests its user’s spirit and can be controlled by its user at will. The sudden emergence of these Stands is revealed to be caused by the revival of the megalomaniacal vampire DIO (the Joestar’s longtime enemy) whose awakening from his century-long slumber has triggered Stands to awaken down the Joestar family line, including in Jotaro’s mother whose uncontrollable Stand will ultimately kill her in a few weeks’ time. Jotaro, Joseph, and their allies have fifty days to locate DIO (using their Stands to thwart DIO’s network of devoted Stand-user minions along the way) and eliminate DIO himself in order to save Jotaro’s mother and prevent DIO’s ambitions of world domination.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 393

This is what happens when you make a nearly-unbeatable opponent even stronger. You up the drama, sure, but you make things extremely predictable as well. We all know that Naruto won’t die from this. It’ll just have to opposite effect.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 393 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.16_[2014.12.27_23.02.37]Madara really did a number on Naruto. His body was damaged to a point where his life is now in danger. This will undoubtedly result in a lot of drama where everyone will shed tears and do their best to make sure he doesn’t die, after which he will become better and rise stronger than ever. That is how these things always go down.

The high level of predictability has always been a problem, yet Naruto’s popularity continues to grow. People know something’s coming, but they just want to know what it is and how. I am pretty much the same. I needed to know how things would go down even though one could see it coming from a mile away. The only thing I want to know right now is after how many more episodes they plan to end this show.

Sword Art Online 2 episode 24

Quite the dramatic episode this turned out to be. I still say the same thing that I have been saying for quite some time now; this was not the way the end the second season. Not at all. I would’ve switched it around so that the Death Gun arc came after this nonsense.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 24 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.13_[2014.12.22_23.35.29]I have seen that a lot of people don’t agree with me. That is fine. I honestly don’t care. I found this last couple of weeks to be ridiculously boring and predictable. We all knew she was going to die and we all knew how she was going to die. I even knew when she was going to die. It became all too obvious that they were saving it for the final episode.

Anyway, I guess I’m a little bit disappointed. They never really finished the Death Gun story in my opinion. This episode may have been better than the last few, but I would not call it a good ending for this season. I can only hope that there’s going to be a third season and that the third season will be a lot better.
