Naruto Shippuuden episode 374

Now this is an episode worth watching! It’s too bad that I have to cut the post short. I have been getting dizzy spells all day and all I want to do right now is finish this post and go to bed. I suppose we all have our bad days.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 374 [720p].mkv_snapshot_02.57_[2014.08.30_23.03.33]So team seven, Naruto, Sasuke and Sakura, have all used their Summoning Jutsu in order to call forth their friends. I still think that Naruto’s toads beat Sasuke’s snakes and pretty much everything else beats Sakura’s slugs. I’m not at all a fan of slugs. It was kind of fun to see how Gamakichi has grown. I still remember the small, cocky Gamakichi and his fat, yellow brother. He’s grown into quite the badass now.

I’m looking forward to seeing more of their “Three-way deadlock”, but I also want to see all the Kage’s back in action after Tsunade is done healing them. I bet that Tsunade wouldn’t mind seeing her grandfather again. Besides, they can use all the help that they can get with Madara still on the loose (not to mention the Ten Tails and Tobi).

Majimoji Rurumo episode 08

What a strange episode. I already has a vague idea of what was going to happen when I watched the preview last week, but this pretty much exceeded my expectations. Even more reason to start thinking about a second season, Japan.

[Anime-Koi] Majimoji Rurumo - 08 [h264-720p][CE292C37].mkv_snapshot_03.50_[2014.08.29_23.24.48]So little girls now come falling from the skies, giving perverts like Kouta an eyeful of glistening purple panties. Not that I, the viewer, had time to admire her panties though. I was more focussed on her enormous head. I think it was her outfit, because she landed and I saw one hell of a head on a pair of tiny shoulders. That was insane. Her freaky cat didn’t make things any better either. That thing looks like its planning to commit mass murder. No wonder that Chiro doesn’t like those two. I’m just glad that that cat didn’t say anything in the end.

[Anime-Koi] Majimoji Rurumo - 08 [h264-720p][CE292C37].mkv_snapshot_15.13_[2014.08.29_23.25.10]So this little girl comes floating down and offers Kouta a free ticket to some magic. Not very surprising that he wished for something that would allow him to fulfil his perverted needs. It’s just that her need to seek Rurumo’s affection is just too weird. All the characters have gotten used to Rurumo’s pokerfaced reactions. No need to follow her around…

She left in the end, but I am certain that she will return again. I am sure of it. In fact, I think that she’s going to be the one to tell Rurumo about what happens when she completes her witch training, after which Rurumo will probably quit. I don’t think Rurumo would do anything that would harm Kouta, not now that she has fallen for him.

Ao Haru Ride episode 08

This whole story is just going back in forth. It’s almost like watching a random child that’s plucking leaf petals from a flower. “She loves me, she loves me not, she loves me, she loves me not…” It’s quite annoying if it goes on for too long.

[HorribleSubs] Ao Haru Ride - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.03_[2014.08.28_22.50.36]So Futaba finally managed to find the courage to tell Yuuri about her feelings for Kou. I think it’s quite admirable how Yuuri dealt with the news. Sure, she was bit surprised and rather sad, but she took it very well. Besides, she doesn’t strike me as the type of character that will do anything to get what she wants. I think she’s as straight as an arrow. That is why I’d rather see her win that Futaba, but that’s obviously not going to happen. Futaba is just way too fussy and has quite a few problems, and I don’t think that their past should give her the edge, even though it obviously does.

[HorribleSubs] Ao Haru Ride - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.37_[2014.08.28_22.50.58]Quite frankly, the only one that I’m actually rooting for is Shuuko-chan. So what if she has a crush on her teacher? They aren’t extremely far apart when it comes to age, so why not? Just wait until Shuuko-chan graduates and date her. Date her now if you think you can keep it quiet… I only say that because I think that Kou’s older brother is a good guy, of course.

Was there any actual progress? I don’t know. Futaba told Yuuri about her feelings for Kou and says that she’s seriously going after him now. I never thought she would literally follow the guy around town like he has honey stuck to his ass. I just hope that Kou will notice her feelings soon. It’s time that he, too, grows up a little instead of acting like a sad, attention craving child.

Barakamon episode 08

Seishuu’s friends have gone back to Tokyo after seeing how he was doing. This made me believe that Seishuu would start to focus a bit more on his work. Boy, it is quite painful to see how incredibly naïve I was. There’s no way that Seishuu will leave those kids alone or vice versa.

[HorribleSubs] Barakamon - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_00.43_[2014.08.26_13.40.21]So it’s Naru’s birthday and the whole group is practically going nuts about getting her gifts and preparing a surprise party. Seishuu did not escape this insanity and joined a group of boys to hunt down insects to give Naru as a gift. You know, I’ve never once met a little girls that actually liked insects. To think that those exist…

I must say that it was quite painful to see Seishuu play along with those kids. He kept hurting himself, he couldn’t even catch a single bug and the one that he did catch ended up getting killed. You’d think that this would only be a scene of a couple of minutes, but no… This was pretty much half of this week’s episode.

[HorribleSubs] Barakamon - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.10_[2014.08.26_13.41.00]I don’t care though. I learned a lot more about Naru and her charm just got bigger. She is still the most adorable character on the show and she just keeps getting cuter. I actually got a little choked up when she said that she got quite bored and sad whenever she has to watch over her grandmother’s grave during some kind of special day. It just got to me when she said that this year was so much better and enjoyable since she had Seishuu to keep her company. Her grandfather, supposedly her last blood related relative, won’t be with them for much longer if you consider his age, so I’m guessing that Seishuu will play an even bigger role in her future (not that something like that would actually happen on Barakamon, of course).

Naruto Shippuuden episode 373

Meh. That one word is the best way I can describe this episode. No surprise in my decision to keep this post short again. For all the Naruto fans out there; the manga is much, much better than the anime. They tend to overstuff the anime with useless recaps, you see.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 373 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.25_[2014.08.23_23.02.22]It was all going so very well… The Hokage’s were hauling ass, their barrier held the Ten Tails’ attack and for a second there it seemed as though the First Hokage was about to take on Madara, whom ended up declining because he hates the idea of fighting a clone, which I thought was rather cool. He may be an overpowered bad guy, obviously, but he does have a sense of pride.

Things soon got screwed up when Sakura ended stealing the spotlight. I never really liked Sakura. I always thought she was naïve, hypocritical and petty. I’ve always seen her as the third wheel of Team Seven. It was always Naruto or Sasuke that had to save her in the end. To think that I was watching a lot of Sakura recaps… What a damn shame.
