Epic! This episode was completely and totally epic. There are no other words to describe it. I thought that we would get another class E bashing episode, but this completely blew away all my expectations. Well done!
The episode started out very interestingly. All the students were practicing their close quarter’s combat techniques again with Karasuma-sensei and things got out of hand when our favourite blue-haired kid scared the daylights out of him for a split second. This alone was more than enough to keep me interested throughout the episode.
That’s when some big guy showed up that claimed to be their new teacher. He was supposedly instructed to turn those kids into ruthless killers as soon as possible. I’m not even going to mention his pointless and merciless methods. Let’s just say that his appearance brought to light a talented young assassin.
You see, none of the students wanted him as a teacher. The guy was a monster. He hit students, came up with a ridiculous training schedule and even forced them to recognize him as their “father”. I’m not even going to explore whatever daddy issues that guy has. I’m just happy that Nagisa-kun got picked as a representative for his class and successfully managed to defeat that guy. That’s right, he got defeated by a student whose talents finally became clear to all of the teachers (and perhaps students). This was truly a great episode with a lot of awesome developments!Read More
This season is quite a mess. I have to reschedule a lot of posts for many days later because most of the good shows air on the same day. The other shows, shows that aren’t really worth writing about, air on other days.
So Bell managed to ensure the safety of his beloved goddess. You could tell that he was fully prepared to give his live so that she could live on. She took him in when no other family would. They all saw him as dead weight, a parasite that would eat their food, use their beds and other resources. Hestia took him in and turned him into a promising adventurer. That is why I am not at all surprised if he rushed towards death so that that girl could continue living. That just goes to show what kind of respectable character this protagonist is.
I replayed the scene where Hestia updated his stats twice. This time it didn’t show how much he had progressed. I decided to cheat a little bit finding the matching chapter of the manga and found out that his stats had almost doubled. They freakin’ doubled! No wonder he managed to defeat that monster. Doesn’t matter if he has a super-knife; he couldn’t have defeated that monster with just that knife if his stats hadn’t doubled. That knife may be special and forged by another goddess, but that doesn’t mean it’s wielder will instantly become invincible.Read More
Ore Monogatari, I choose you! Use your thunderbolt! God… I’ve been making cheesy Pokemon jokes all day long. Pokemon, a gift yet quite the curse. I wonder if the same thing could be said for Ore Monogatari?
First thing’s first; Takeo, one of the main male characters. The guy is huge, strong and scary-looking. He looks a bit like gorilla and will never become a doctor. I know that makes him sound like a complete loser, someone that no woman would ever want to end up with. Nothing could be further from the truth. Its guys like that whom usually end up with great girls. The guy has a heart of twenty-four karat gold, things of others and is always ready to help someone, even if he himself ends up getting hurt in the process. Now that’s a guy that girls want.
The second thing that I would like to point out is that Rinko-chan, the girl that Takeo saved on the train, probably really likes him. Takeo is used to girls befriending him so that they can get closer to Makoto, his good-looking best friend. I really believe that that’s not the case this time. I think that Rinko-chan may have fallen for Takeo.
The problem lies with Takeo. He is not used to girls falling for him. In fact, occurrences like that might actually be somewhat rare. That’s why he doesn’t know how to deal with those situations because he believes that she could never be interested in him. If only he had more self-esteem. Things would’ve been better for him.Read More
Wow… This might actually be pretty good. When I read that it was going to be another one of those shows where the characters trade bodies I became sort of disappointed. God only knows how many of those there are already. But no… This was actually quite amusing and interesting.
The artwork is pretty good. The characters look nice, the level of detail is good… Sure, there are things that I don’t really appreciate, like some of those character expressions, but hey… That’ll happen.
The story is what interests me. The main heroine isn’t your typical girly girl. Soon more will show up and it makes me curious about their personalities. I basically just want to see what’s going to happen.
Recommendable? Yeah. I think so. Why not? It’s funny, a little ecchi (yay) and contains traces of romance and huge doses of supernatural abilities. So yeah, why not?

I wasn’t happy when the first season aired. I mean, yes, I think the manga deserves an anime adaption, but when it finally arrived… Let’s just say that I felt somewhat betrayed.
Now, some of you might wonder why I felt betrayed. Well, I can only blame the artwork for that. The characters look so damn strange and the artwork is not at all smooth or visually appealing to me. It, for me at least, is very difficult to watch and enjoy.
Nothing wrong with the story though. It’s a good story. A lot of fans say that it’s a pointless story where nothing really happens and where things just go in a loop. I cannot deny that, but I still think it’s quite enjoyable.
I for one will probably not watch this, just like the first season. I will stick with the manga. But hey, see for yourself if this anime adaption of Nisekoi is worth watching.
