Ao Haru Ride episode 07

You know, it’s actually quite funny. I actually started to think that I somewhat understood women after all these years. I kept telling myself that Ao Haru Ride is just function and that girls don’t actually think like that. My niece certainly set me straight on that one…

[HorribleSubs] Ao Haru Ride - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.57_[2014.08.21_22.52.55]I am honestly losing a little bit of interest in Ao Haru Ride. It’s all so pointless. They make everything seem so complicated and important, yet everyone knows the outcome. I for one am completely puzzled. I keep asking the same question during every episode; “why don’t you say something if you realize you like him/her?”

This episode just added to that. Futaba bought new shampoo because Kou made a comment on how her hair smells. She bought something new in order to impress him and seem more girly, only to end up doubting her decision afterwards. What is up with that? So many pointless emotions… I’m guessing the majority of Ao Haru Ride fans consist primarily of girls.

Barakamon episode 07

I was surfing the internet a couple of days ago when I stumbled upon a Barakamon topic. It seems that there has been talk about a live-action series. Wouldn’t that be interesting to see “real” Naru on your screen? I might actually like that.

[HorribleSubs] Barakamon - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_02.18_[2014.08.19_23.36.40]Anyway, the group decided to go fishing before Seishuu’s friends, Takao and that annoying little brat he brought with him, return back home to resume their own lives. You immediately know that it won’t be one of your regular fishing trips. Nothing has been regular in any of the episodes. I just laughed as they messed up even the simplest of things without worrying about what they’re actually doing. So what if they fish using strange equipment or methods? Everything will be fine as long as Naru is around to raise a little bit of hell. It keeps things interesting.

[HorribleSubs] Barakamon - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_11.12_[2014.08.19_23.37.01]Quite frankly, I’m not into all of that melodrama crap. Let them shop for a few souvenirs before they go back home and say goodbye to them afterwards. No point in dragging out the inevitable. That’s why I couldn’t really understand that scene where they all had to go through that metal detector. I failed to find that funny. Perhaps I’ll watch that scene again after I finish writing this.

I’m hoping for some explosive improvement next week. Seishuu has his little reunion and he’s certainly had plenty of fun. Now would be a good time for him to grow a little as an artist and win something once again. After all, isn’t that the whole point of him being there? Would be nice to see if he actually improved on that island.

Majimoji Rurumo episode 06

I just love Majimoji Rurumo. I can never predict what is going to happen next. I doubt anyone could’ve predicted what would happen during this episode. This truly is a ridiculously underrated show. People still only see a little girl with panties.

[Anime-Koi] Majimoji Rurumo - 06 [h264-720p][9F6E863F].mkv_snapshot_03.58_[2014.08.16_23.25.48]Did I know that this episode would revolve around the little kittens that Kouta would find? Of course not. Nobody would ever think that Kouta would simply lose his mind over finding a box of little kittens. I certainly wouldn’t think of him as a kitten nut since he never really paid that much attention to Chiro (at least not the kitty version).

I must admit that it was truly hilarious when Kouta decided to leave the kitten to Chiro. Her reaction was priceless. I guess Chiro-chan just isn’t ready yet to become a mother. I could definitely do with another one of this episodes. Hell, let Kouta find a few kittens during the next few episodes, too. Just seeing Chiro’s reaction makes it worth it.

[Anime-Koi] Majimoji Rurumo - 06 [h264-720p][9F6E863F].mkv_snapshot_14.41_[2014.08.16_23.26.13]There was one thing that I did foresee though. Well, I have to be honest and say that I would never have expected it to actually happen. At least not in Majimoji Rurumo. Kouta took care of those kittens, tried his best to find a good home for them, but his favourite kitten ended up dying in the end. It turns out that he was very sick and didn’t have long to begin with. I guess it’s the rain that finished the job. This all just introduced a little bit of drama to the story, which I found rather enjoyable. I honestly believe that a little bit more drama would do this show well.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 372

I refuse to write a lengthy post when the father-son reunion that I have been waited for was completely ruined when they introduced the element of comedy to an otherwise serious episode. It was completely out of place and not funny at all.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 372 [720p].mkv_snapshot_15.23_[2014.08.16_23.24.57]The only “funny” scene that is worth mentioning was when Naruto’s father made the connection that Sakura, whom he thinks is Naruto’s girlfriend, looks a lot like Naruto’s mother, the red-headed demon that tied him down. I gave it a little smile, but that is all it got. The rest was just absolutely dreadful and hard to watch.

So the fight has finally begun. The old Hokage’s have shown up and are already hauling so much ass. They trapped the Ten Tails within a minute and there’s no doubt in my mind that the First Hokage will leave it to the rest of the Hokage’s in order to fight Madara. I’m pretty sure that that’s how it went in the manga (it’s been a very long time).

Ao Haru Ride episode 06

I am not old. Seriously, I am a young man. Why do I feel so old when I watch this show? The characters’ problems seem so childish and pointless that I basically want to slap the first teenager I come across for no good reason.

[HorribleSubs] Ao Haru Ride - 06 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.52_[2014.08.14_23.28.50]It seems that my hunch was right. Yuuri fell in love with Kou after he helped her up when she fell. She claims that she always had her eyes on him, but that he pretty much stole her heart when he helped her. I’m sorry, but isn’t that quite a bit sad? Do teenage girls really fall in love over something so trivial? I just hope this love triangle crap goes over quickly, because we already know how this is going to end. Futaba is going to win. Plain and simple. Kou likes Futaba and Futaba likes Kou. Yuuri’s feelings for Kou are one-sided and will stay that way.

[HorribleSubs] Ao Haru Ride - 06 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.38_[2014.08.14_23.29.15]It’s about time that Futaba realized that she likes Kou. Hell, she always knew it. She gets nervous when she’s around him, she can feel her heart going nuts and she always seems to sniff his hair like a horny b*tch (dog) in heat. I don’t think I would like a hair-sniffing, two-faced girlfriend like that. I hate to say it like this, but Kou can do better. Let’s face it; the guy is smart, has looks and has a pretty good personality. If he were a real human being than he would go very far in life. It’s too bad that he’s about to realize that he has feelings for Futaba just like she has feelings for him. It’s so obvious…
