Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou episode 03

You can tell that progress is going to be really slow with this one. I guess we might as well enjoy the comedy for the time being, because the romance is still far away from the looks of it. Just so you know; those lovey-dovey moments where the characters blush… Yeah… I refuse to call that romantic.

[Commie] Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou - 03 [C4420432].mkv_snapshot_05.30_[2014.04.19_23.33.00]So Kazunari-kun got himself a bicycle, huh? Good for him! It’s kind of sad that he actually thought that Ritsu-chan would sit behind him every day to school. His expectations are very low if he thinks that’s some kind of victory. It’s even sadder if he only bought that bicycle because he wanted to go to school with Ritsu every day.

I’m also losing faith in Mayumi-chan. She’s far too naïve. A guy cheats on her and she comes crawling back to him because he wants to get laid? Either Mayumi is truly naïve and dumb or she’s the type of girl that likes to sleep around. I don’t know… She’s basically standing on the line between gullible and slut. That’s the case with most girls nowadays, isn’t it?

[Commie] Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou - 03 [C4420432].mkv_snapshot_15.08_[2014.04.19_23.33.21]What can I expect from Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou? I can tell that Ritsu is slowly starting to keep an eye on Kazunari. That’s a good sign I suppose. And Kazunari is still going nuts for Ritsu, so that’s fine as well. I especially liked the part where Ritsu threw that book at that guy in order to prevent Kazunari from being beaten up by one of Sayaka’s flings. It really makes you wonder what kind of person Sayaka is… I for one don’t like her at all. She’s pretentious, cunning and her whole personality is just too suspicious. I don’t think people like that can ever be truly happy with themselves. No way…

Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin episode 02

So the midget detective finally shows herself, huh? I’m kind of putting a lot of hope into this show. I have high expectations and am kind of hoping for a good ending, which the Japanese aren’t really known for if you ask me.

[HorribleSubs] Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_00.36_[2014.04.18_23.38.23]So Juugo already found one of Nanana’s treasures, huh? You’d think that Nanana would be rather agitated after finding out that people are successfully finding and taking all of the items that she collected when she was still alive, but no… She genuinely seems to encourage it. Whom else besides Juugo would end up finding any of it? He’s the protagonist. All female and male characters will get drawn to him. Unfortunately, male characters in female clothing are no exception. We already have one of those. How many more can we expect to see, huh?

[HorribleSubs] Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.28_[2014.04.18_23.39.13]Anyway, Juugo is already being dragged into something that he has no knowledge of. He knows a little about Nanana and her treasure, the one that murdered her and about the island itself. That’s it. He knows nothing else, yet he’s already being involved by unknown characters that undoubtedly have motives of their own.

It’s quite obvious to me that this is going to be one of those chases. People chase after Juugo, Nanana chases after her murderer and Juugo chases after Nanana’s treasure. At one point all of them will meet in the middle and it’s all going to come out. I have no idea how romance has anything to do with this yet. I’ll just have to wait and see.

No Game No Life episode 02

I am absolutely loving No Game No Life! You are given an idea of what to expect from the story, but then it suddenly takes a strange turn and you can start all over again. I, too, have an idea of what Sora wants right now, but that could change again next week.

[HorribleSubs] No Game No Life - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.02_[2014.04.17_22.56.47]No Game No Life is pure magic. Sora struck me as the type of character that wants an easy life behind a PC where he can play the rest of his life. Shiro is somewhat similar, but only because she pretty much follows her brother in everything he does. You could very well say that Sora is responsible for his little sister’s mental issues.

This episode is one hell of an example… Sora defeated Stephanie in a game of rock, paper and scissors, after which he ordered her to fall in love with him. It’s moments like these that you realize how messed up that guy truly is. The worst part is that that poor girl has to obey and fall in love with him. She no longer has any choice.

[HorribleSubs] No Game No Life - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.28_[2014.04.17_22.57.24]There are many things that I still want to point out, but I hate reading huge posts that go about nothing, so I always try to keep my posts short and simple. I was actually quite shocked when I saw what happened when the two of them are separated. They become weak little creatures that can no longer function properly. Only when they’re together do they act all high and mighty. This could prove to be quite difficult when they’re going to take on “royalty”. They may be great at playing games, but they sure have a lot of weaknesses, which makes it all the more interesting.

Mekakucity Actors

What is it with this season? A lot of stories about NEETs and the like… Not that I mind, of course… I will watch anything as long as it’s good. In fact, the more the better, right? That’s why I’m pretty satisfied with this particular show.

Mekakucity ActorsThey did not hold back on the artwork. It looks pretty good. You can tell that Aniplex has something to do with it. I’m already a fan of that female computer character. Her cocky attitude and sci-fi looks are a pretty interesting combination.

It’s another story about a NEET and special abilities. You can hardly go wrong there. I also saw that it’s supposed to be quite romantic, but I failed to see that. I would not slap the romance label on this one.

I will watch it because it caught my eye and I ended up enjoying the first episode. I suggest you do the same thing.

Plot Summary: The incidents which occurred on August 14th and 15th bring a group of young boys and girls together… They are members of a group they call themselves the “Mekakushi Dan” (Blindfold Organization) and each member possesses a strange power involving their eyes.

Date A Live 2

It’s incredible how naïve some people are. I actually read surprised responses when the second season was officially announced. You saw the first season’s ending, didn’t you? Those that did knew instantly that there was going to be a second season… How foolish.

Date A Live 2The artwork and story basically go hand in hand. The characters look great, it’s pretty detailed and the action scenes are top-notch. It’s definitely nice to see and there is very little that I would change about the artwork. It’s good as it is.

It’s a funny story about mecha girls and romance. What more could you possibly want from a story? It’s filled with action, comedy and romance… Isn’t that all you need in life?

I might as well recommend this. I watched the entire first season and I’m going to watch this one as well. I suggest you do the same, but be sure to watch the first season if you haven’t already.

Plot Summary: Shido Itsuka, who used to be a normal high school student at Raizen High, meets the first Spirit, Tohka, and awakens his power to “seal the Spirit’s power”. Though they may be feared and hated beings due to their immense power, Spirits were always alone and knew only combat and death. Shido, the only one in the world with the power to seal the Spirits’ might, hurls himself into life-threatening dates with the beautiful Spirits in order to save them.
