Himouto! Umaru-chan episode 04

God Eater doesn’t have a regular episode this week, so I might as well write my Himouto! Umaru-chan post right now. I found this episode rather disappointing. It was like a compilation of mixed scenes all propped into one episode.

[HorribleSubs] Himouto! Umaru-chan - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.33_[2015.08.04_23.11.55]I knew that character would show up again. That’s the one thing that’s extremely predictable about this show; you know which characters are going to show up regularly and you can also figure out quite easily when they’re going to show up. I mean, when I saw the start of the episode and laid eyes on that blue-haired monstrosity whose name I simply cannot remember I knew that this episode would feature her quite a bit. And yeah, I was right. She’s never far away whenever there’s a competition that involves Umaru-chan. I must admit that it gets a little bit boring after two or three times.

[HorribleSubs] Himouto! Umaru-chan - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.20_[2015.08.04_23.12.18]Anyway, Umaru decided to dedicate this episode to her gaming addiction. There’s really only one thing that I can say about that; her future man is going to be one lucky duck. He has a beautiful girl that watches anime and plays games, which is pretty much every nerd’s ideal mate. It’s really too bad that such a girl is extremely rare.

Next week might future a different character, as that’s usually the standard pattern in these stories, but I think that either Nana or Kirie is going to be the supporting character next week. My money’s on Kirie seeing as we’re not done yet with that situation about Umaru being her own little sister. We’ll definitely be seeing more of that.

Working!!! episode 05

I am running out of time again and am forced to keep this post short, which is alright, seeing as this episode was surprisingly predictable. I believe I already said most of it during last week’s post, so no point in continuing that.

[HorribleSubs] Working!!! - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_15.40_[2015.08.03_23.30.15]Our protagonist’s emo sister decided to set the anime world’s most violent girl up for a blind date with her brother. Both of them had no idea whom they were meeting, but things got pretty interesting when they did meet. I mean, Inami basically confessed and I’m sure that dense idiot finally picked up on that. I don’t know how he’ll deal with it, but he’ll probably pretend as though he doesn’t know.

I won’t even start about that Yamada nonsense. I don’t care what she eats. I’m more interested in seeing that idiot’s mother for once. It’s about time that she showed up. We know almost nothing about her, yet she appears to be one of the important characters. I would probably trade her for Yamada at this point. I’m kind of getting tired of her.

Ore Monogatari!! episode 17

This episode was refreshing! I like Takeo and Rinko and all, but I could’ve done with a new couple. That’s why I am pretty happy with this episode. It might also be the one thing that was needed to boost their relationship to a new level.

[HorribleSubs] Ore Monogatari!! - 17 [720p].mkv_snapshot_06.53_[2015.07.31_23.49.31]So afro-kun had a crush on one of Rinko’s girlfriends. Well, that was bound to happen. You invite a group of horny teenage boys to go out and play with a group of inexperience teenage girls and what do you get? All sorts of possibilities arise. One of them was the possibility of another couple joining the big picture. Afro-kun, being an idiot, didn’t really do it properly, but he did eventually manage to get the girl he liked. In fact, their relationship is going so fast that they’re already doing better than Takeo and Rinko, which, in my opinion at least, is a bit of a slap in the face.

[HorribleSubs] Ore Monogatari!! - 17 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.46_[2015.07.31_23.49.40]I believe that this could be the boost that those two needed. Rinko now knows that her friend has already gone further with her boyfriend than she has with Takeo. This should inspire her to do better and perhaps be a little more aggressive. Nothing wrong with stealing a kiss. We’re at the seventeenth episode; I’m done with just holding hands.

I think Rinko has a fair chance. She is bolder than people give her credit for. The problem is Takeo. He still sees Rinko has a pure girl that wouldn’t want to do those things, so he definitely won’t be the one to make the first move. I’m putting all my money on Rinko. I just hope it happens soon. I don’t want to see their first kiss during the last episode. That would be such a boring cliché.

Working!!! episode 04

Another interesting episode. I find that these episodes can be quite misleading when it comes to the Working series. You think something’s about to happen due to the amount of progress some characters seem to be making, only to feel betrayed afterwards.

[HorribleSubs] Working!!! - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_06.51_[2015.07.28_00.06.47]So Jun and Yachiyo’s relationship has been progressing quite nicely since last week. Yachiyo knew that there’s a girl that Jun likes, she just doesn’t know who that girl is, which makes it a little harder for her to approach him. She realizes that she doesn’t want him to be just a friend anymore. She wants something more, but she doesn’t know what that is. She’s socially quite awkward and doesn’t know much about relationship or love in general, which only ends up making things harder. We’ve reached a point where I want it to be over with; let them become an item already. It’s been long enough.

[HorribleSubs] Working!!! - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.00_[2015.07.28_00.07.01]The unexpected twist during this episode was when souta started to see Mahiru a little differently. He thought that she was cute, even though, in his mind at least, only adorable things (like children and little animals) are usually the only things he finds cute. Quite the interesting development no matter how you look at it.

But hey, it’ll probably be like Jun and Yachiyo; it’ll be milked until it completely stops being funny. That whole awkwardness between Jun and Yachiyo stopped being funny last season, so I wonder how fast this will stop being funny. There really aren’t a lot of possibilities when we’re talking about a girl that doesn’t like to communicate with people from the opposite sex.

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya 2wei Herz!

People are extremely ecstatic over this show. A lot of people don’t know that this was based on an erotic novel and think that it’s all innocent, when in actually it comes pretty close to porn. What you don’t know won’t harm you, I guess?

Fate kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei HerzThe artwork is alright I suppose. A lot of good studios have been working on these spin-off series. To me it just seems like it’s more fan service than anything else though. It’s not nearly as good as the regular Fate series.

I only really watched half of the first season to be honest. The story simply didn’t interest me. It was pretty funny at the start, but I soon got bored with it and I could tell that my image of the Fate series was getting worse.

Fate die-hards will watch this no matter what I say here. Perverts too. Unfortunately, I simply respect the Fate series far too much to watch this. It just doesn’t measure up.

Plot Summary: Based on the Fate/Kaleid Liner Prisma☆Illya 2wei! manga by Hiroshi Hiroyama, itself a spin-off of the Fate/stay night erotic visual novel by Type-Moon.
