Amagi Brilliant Park episode 12

I will only be doing the Amagi Brilliant Park post this week because other shows have ended and I would like to be able to write something daily. I actually started watching with the idea that this was the final episode. It seems I checked wrongly.

[Vivid] Amagi Brilliant Park - 12 [DAD04255].mkv_snapshot_02.50_[2014.12.22_01.17.50]Okay, so things didn’t go entirely as I had imagined, but I wasn’t far off. Everyone pitched in by calling friends, family, pretty much anyone that they could get a hold off in order to lure them into the park. I mean, everyone knew that they would succeed even before this whole thing started. I am just happy that I got to see some of those mascots get beat up. Too bad that annoying shark didn’t get beaten. I would have loved to see that. He has been annoying since the show began and he hasn’t changed one bit from what I could tell.

[Vivid] Amagi Brilliant Park - 12 [DAD04255].mkv_snapshot_12.21_[2014.12.22_01.18.05]Well, they succeeded. The park has been saved and that stalking guy that came to check up on them regularly, seems to be someone from their magical world as well. Believe it or not, I actually saw that coming. I knew something was off when he took such an interest in our protagonist and actually tried to win him over to his side. After having experienced what Amagi Brilliant Park had to offer us, the viewer, I kind of started to make that connection between that guy and their world. I am guessing that they are going to focus on that a bit during the next and final episode.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 392

I didn’t have time to watch this week’s Amagi Brilliant Park episode, which is kind of killing me, but I, at the very least, have seen this week’s Naruto Shippuuden episode. It still had a few useless scenes in it, but I am happy to say that the fillers have once again ended.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 392 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.45_[2014.12.20_23.58.51]Long story short: Madara is hauling ass again. He has become fully human again in order to gain control over all of his power, which was not possible when he was undead. The thought of him getting even stronger is kind of ridiculous, but he just took the whole damn cake when he actually absorbed the first Hokage’s nature powers.

This guy is always on the hunt. This time he’s looking for new eyes and to once again enslave the Tailed Beasts in order to use that amazing Jutsu of his. The sad part is that he will obviously succeed. Naruto and his friends can’t do anything but be one step behind him at all times. The fact that Madara has become mortal again doesn’t really matter when you can’t even touch him.

Trinity Seven episode 11

You know, the problem with Trinity Seven is that the fights are always so ridiculously childish. The characters are joking around and sometimes they don’t even bother attacking seriously. That’s what it looks like to me.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 11 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.06_[2014.12.17_23.19.19]This episode is a good example of that. Levi was matched against an opponent whose “Thema” is the same as hers. They both are researching the same thing and so you’d think they’d be evenly matched. If that were even remotely true than Levi wouldn’t have to resort to such ridiculous tactics. It really looked like she was just messing around. She hid a lot, faked attacks by claiming it was something else and tried to fool her opponent with lies. All of this was done in a sort of “funny” way in order to try and make us laugh, no doubt. That failed in my case.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 11 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.48_[2014.12.17_23.19.33]It was pretty hard to watch. Levi is still my favourite, but I want to see her fight seriously. Stop messing around with ninja nonsense and attack using real attacks. Her speed and illusions are cool and quite handy, but the way she follows up is stupid. I saw her fight seriously once and that was definitely worth watching.

Anyway, the final episode is up next and I am pretty sure that Arata will resolve everything by talking and showing his “compassionate” side to Hijiri in order to bring her over to his side. We all know what is going to happen. Trinity Seven has probably given us one or two unexpected twists during the past few months. That’s about it.

Amagi Brilliant Park episode 11

I am skipping Naruto Shippuuden again this week. Still too many fillers for my taste. This on the other hand is starting to look really promising again. The thought of them trying to rush the ending is slowly starting to disappear.

[Vivid] Amagi Brilliant Park - 11 [B67134F8].mkv_snapshot_10.46_[2014.12.13_23.53.07] - CopyI have surprisingly very little to say about this episode. It was quite brilliant. They found a football team or two that needed a stadium to play in. That’s when the park decided to allow them to use the stadium on the one condition that all of the players and visitors had to come in through the main entrance. Truly a stroke of brilliance.

They did not make it to the required number, but I am sure that our teenage manager will find a way to bring in those two hundred and fifty-two necessary visitors. There’s probably a bus or two somewhere that arrive late or something. We’ll see. I will say that my faith in the ending has been completely renewed and I am truly looking forward to seeing the last episode.

Trinity Seven episode 10

I suppose I could consider this episode somewhat different from the rest… I could, but I won’t. How different was it, really? It still contained small portions of fan service, comedy and a somewhat predictable twist.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.19_[2014.12.10_23.05.22]So Arata ascended from Demon Lord Candidate to an actual Demon Lord. Good for him! His outfit changed as well as his appearance. His hair turned white, which made me think about Tokyo Ghouls, and he has these lines across his cheek which made him look like a little badass. I definitely like what I saw, even though if it was for a short duration. It would’ve been a bit more exciting to see more and if it took more than a simple slap to make him turn back to his old self, but hey… beggars can’t be choosers. I’m just happy that I got to see something interesting.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.11_[2014.12.10_23.05.47]I also noticed that Mira, the show’s tsundere, has finally given in to Arata’s charms, whatever they are. She has fully acknowledged him as a potential partner and is now actually calling him by his name instead of “the impure one”, although I must say that I definitely like the latter. His harem has made some progress once again.

But yeah, spending a few months looking for a character that’s dear to the protagonist, only to find out that she’s on the opposite team… That sucks! Watch; she’s bad now, but, just like that grim moiré from last week, Arata will beat her and make her switch sides. Either that or she’s consumed by evil and Arata has to set her free. Probably something as standard as that.
