Barakamon episode 12

That mom… Seishuu’s mother is one hell of a messed up character. She truly managed to put a weird spin on the ending. Nevertheless, I don’t think I’d ever forget about Barakamon and definitely believe that it deserves another season.

[HorribleSubs] Barakamon - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.32_[2014.09.30_23.35.02]That mother of his was crazy. She refused to let him go back to that island, so she decided to paste the walls of his room with little talismans that told him not to return to that ungodly island. Are they by any chance Jewish? I’m pretty sure only Jewish mothers cherish their children to a degree where they would practically force them to live at home for the rest of their lives. Can you really blame Seishuu for being a little bit strange? Just look at the characters that supposedly raised him. Both father and mother have got a screw or two loose. That poor guy…

[HorribleSubs] Barakamon - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.45_[2014.09.30_23.35.19]Anyway, Seishuu decided that his last submit for this season would be that sign what all those people’s names one it. I found that rather precious. He probably didn’t win, which makes sense and kind of pisses me off, but I think it’s brilliant and really finishes things off nicely. Do I have any regrets? Hell no. it was great from start to finish.

Did you see the look on everyone’s face when he returned? Priceless. This is just one of those rare endings where things make sense. It’s an actual ending, you know? I have no complaints about it whatsoever. I’m just really glad that I decided to write about Barakamon from start to finish. It was worth it.

Sweet mother of god. What the hell is going on here!? I’m telling you right now; that little protagonist is one step away from losing his mind. Did you see him? Sweet Jesus… The word fairy definitely came to mind as I watched this stuff.

66373The artwork is just… wow. This is obviously made for kids. It has to be. I could never like something like this. The artwork is kind of cheap, even though the characters definitely look unique, and I find certain scenes very hard to watch. I just can’t get over the protagonist… That hair, those eyebrows, that pink crap on his face…

It’s an anime about dancing. What else can I say? There will be dancing, laughing and probably dance battles. That’s all there is to it.

I am skipping this one and I suggest you do the same. It just looks very weird and the story does not look very promising. I can’t recommend this.

Plot Summary: Haneru is a middle school student who loves dance to the point he can hear rhythm in the sound of chalk during class. One day after school, in the secret spot where he practices dancing, he meets Kanon, who’s there to practice as well. The have a great time dancing together, and eventually face off against rivals in dance battles as they grow up.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 379

This episode actually made me thing about whether or not Sasuke is capable of using Sage Art abilities. The manga is far ahead so I can’t remember, but I am pretty sure he can’t. I can’t remember anyone ever teaching him any of that.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 379 [720p].mkv_snapshot_11.59_[2014.09.27_23.22.56]Anyway, Obito became host to the Ten Tails and is giving everyone a run for their money. All of the Kages have been revived using the Edo Tensei, giving them immortal bodies. Having those bodies is quite the advantage, but not against Obito, seeing as his attacks render their bodies useless. He destroys parts of their revived bodies and they won’t regenerate. No more second chances for them.

They can’t even use regular Justsu anymore. Obito can only be touched by Sage Justsu now, which pretty much puts Naruto in the spotlight, seeing as he’s been thoroughly trained in the Sage Arts. Yes… Good times are ahead. I’ll just end this post by seeing that Obito would have been long dead if Itachi were still alive. Enough said.

Majimoji Rurumo episode 12

Majimoji Rurumo… I will never forget you. This must have been one of the hardest to predict shows in the history of anime. I’ve wasted plenty of time with theories, trying to predict what was going to happen next, but I don’t think I’ve ever been right. Well played.

[Anime-Koi] Majimoji Rurumo - 12 [h264-720p][ECA9A0D3].mkv_snapshot_08.27_[2014.09.26_23.15.50]A lot of people are kind of disappointed in the ending… Why? Is it because Rurumo never found out about what would happen to Kouta if she were to complete her witch training? Maybe it’s because that other witch never showed up again? Either way, I think this ending was quite alright. It fits, you know? An unpredictable ending for an unpredictable show. Besides, it did end something if you ask me. It was quite touching and overall pretty brilliant. The only problem with the ending is that Majimoji Rurumo ended with a low user rating score on pretty much every anime website.

[Anime-Koi] Majimoji Rurumo - 12 [h264-720p][ECA9A0D3].mkv_snapshot_19.33_[2014.09.26_23.16.13]What’s so wrong about making Kouta and everyone else to forget about Rurumo for a day? I think it was quite a clever test. They all noticed that something was missing in their lives and Kouta came pretty close to remember before he encountered Rurumo in the Kimono that he rented for her. Certainly not a bad idea at all.

Yes, I wish there was a bit more romance. I wish that their relationship had progressed a little bit further. But hey, it was never that type of show. It’s a comedy before anything else. In the end I was amusing every single week. One minute of Majimoji Rurumo was enough to put a smile on my face, so I have no regrets. This was definitely worth writing about in the end.

Ao Haru Ride episode 12

Alright. This post will be kept short, this will be kept simple and this will be kept honest. I do not think that Ao Haru Ride turned out to be a bad watch. There were plenty of times were I truly enjoyed watching it. That being said, I still think that Zankyou no Terror, which turned out to be wonderful from start to finish, would’ve been a much better pick for me.

[HorribleSubs] Ao Haru Ride - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.39_[2014.09.25_22.19.05]Anyway, Futaba-chan did it. She finally succeeded in breaking down that invisible wall and forced Kou to act his age a bit more. He was so angry and so scared all the time, apparently. Futaba seems to have fixed all that. Does she not realize that she has a hold over him? Dammit Futaba… Just do what most women do; try to dominate and control the living crap out of him.

Kou is slowly becoming more and more sociable with everyone. Nevertheless, was there any progress at the end? Not really. All we really got during these past twelve weeks were hugs and teenage drama. In the end it didn’t really meet my expectations. I would’ve thought that Kou would’ve asked Futaba out by now, but no… A pretty mediocre ending for an overall overrated, yet amusing show.
