Wow, what the hell? This show took a really weird turn. I thought it was all about that gorilla and his unstable love live, but then more and more characters got involved, and now that kind of peaked. Things just got really weird.
To start things off; Takeo did not spend that much time with his loving angel. It seems that he was too focussed on the fact that the brick chicken house he calls his mother is going to spawn yet another offspring at the age of forty. That woman is insane; she’s forty years old and already has a huge son in high school, and now she’s having another child? The age difference between the child and Takeo will be about fifteen or sixteen years? Something like that? How does that even work? I thought that the age difference between me and my brother (six years) was a lot, but this… insanity!
What surprised me the most is that Takeo seems genuinely excited about it. He already has a brother from another mother, but it seems that he wouldn’t mind a brother from the same mother after all these years. That’s what scares me. Doesn’t he realize that it’s potentially dangerous for his mother to have children at this point?
But that’s that. He will have plenty of other stuff on his mind. The fact that his best friend’s father has been taken to the hospital and that his mother is miles away is going to take up a lot of his time, I guess. I’m pretty sure Takeo’s girlfriend will be showing up as well to try and help him now that he’s alone, even though he’s not the type to ask for help.Read More
Unbelievable. It’s been five months since those dreadful fillers started. Five months! That’s the longest period of fillers I’ve ever known in Naruto. Those sad morons are really trying to milk this thing to its fullest, aren’t they?
Let’s face it; the last movie came out, the manga ended (and fortunately a new one started) and now they are trying to prolong the series as long as they can. I wouldn’t be surprised if in a few months’ time they are going to give us even more fillers to milk this show even more. What a truly sad thing to see… Nothing but fillers for almost half a year…
And they left us at such a good part, too. That’s why they were sure that the fans would stick around. Naruto was dying, Sasuke was injured and Madara’s mission was going pretty well with him now absorbing the Ten Tails. Yes, he looked pretty cool after that, but hey… Naruto’s still the best. No exceptions.
What pissed me off most about this episode is that we endured five months’ worth of fillers. Five boring months of useless Naruto Shippuuden episodes. Then we finally get to see the continuation of the latest great ninja war and we see the exact same mistakes that were made way before. I mean, Naruto’s father tries to give Naruto the other half of the Nina Tails so that he becomes even stronger, only to see Zetsu get in between to take that power for himself. How can you even make a mistake like that? It is petty crap like that that makes me want to stop watching sometimes…Read More
Okay, better… Much better. It’s a damn shame that I’ve come down with a tremendous headache and have to make this post short and sweet before diving into bed. Some days are hardly worth it, you know?
So Class E decided to execute their plan. They seemed to have been working on it for some time and things went pretty smoothly. They made use of a lot of his weaknesses in order to push him into a corner where he couldn’t use his insane speed to escape. You could say he dug his own grave for promising not to go anywhere.
They trapped him, tricked him and successfully forced him to use his trump card; his last defence. A mode where he traps himself inside a little indestructible ball. He cannot move whilst inside and people can do whatever they want with him during that period. Sounds like a poor defence to me? Just throw that ball inside a container filled with melted anti-alien liquid.Read More
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.
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.
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…Read More
I forgot to watch Knights of Sidonia because I didn’t haul it in. I keep forgetting that HorribleSubs doesn’t cover that show so I have to search for it myself. But that’s fine; this week’s Ore Monogatari was pretty darn good.
So the hurdle continues. Takeo has a girlfriend now and Rinko now has a boyfriend. Very nice. It still puzzles me that Rinko was the one that wanted to be a little bit more physical instead of Takeo. Usually it’s the guy that wants to touch his girl more and more. Quite the interesting twist. I must say that the change hasn’t become quite clear to me yet. They still didn’t seem very close during this episode, and that’s not because Takeo had other things to worry about this time. I’m starting to wonder what the point of all of that was, really.
So Takeo was begged by a couple of Judo goons to help them out in their upcoming tournament. They really wanted to win this to boost morale and whatnot. Now, Takeo is a really good guy, so it’s not surprising that he instantly agreed to help, but he was willing to take a small break from dating his little girlfriend so that he could train for a month.
You know, all that’s really nice and all. I saw plenty of great scenes where I could enjoy Rinko’s adorable smile. That’s really nice. But hey, I am still waiting for Rinko to introduce her boyfriend to her parents. Aren’t you curious to see their reaction? I really want to see that happen. Her parents will probably be against it since most people judge books by their covers, so I am curious how Takeo’s going to fix that.Read More
