Trinity Seven episode 08

What an odd episode. Yes, there was progress and yes I learned quite a bit more about the characters, but at the same time it feels as though very little happened. This is probably just me overthinking things again though.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.51_[2014.11.26_22.39.01]Arata has become more serious than ever about magic. He is asking questions, practicing until he drops and he doesn’t joke as much anymore. That being said, why does it feel as though very little of that actually happened? I did not see him train. I did not see him learn new things. I basically saw the same thing that I’ve been seeing since the beginning; the protagonist getting into trouble by getting a bit too close to the girls even though sometimes it isn’t his fault. What happened to the things he had learned? Why skip over something so important?

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.55_[2014.11.26_22.35.48]I just don’t understand it. What is the point of this episode? The only scene that I might actually try to remember was when Lilith lost the top part of her bikini and Arata, whom happened to be around again, got a nice eyeful of those busty melons of her, causing Lilith to go berserk and blast him away again. This stuff has pretty much become a routine.

At least the next episode seems to be quite interesting. It seems that Arata, thanks to the headmaster’s teleportation, finally found Hijiri again. Have they arrived in another world? Or did Hijiri simply vanish to another part of the same world? I feel as though we’re about to get a lot of answers to our many questions during the next episode.

Amagi Brilliant Park episode 08

I am very disappointed. I am starting to get the feeling that the ending of Amagi Brilliant Park is going to be very messy and uninspiring. They’re probably going to do some kind of show that will lure in the necessary amount of visitors at the last minute and end the show.

[Vivid] Amagi Brilliant Park - 08 [720].mkv_snapshot_04.14_[2014.11.23_22.39.21]It started out pretty interesting. All was going well until Seiya fell sick from being overworked. This resulted in those idiots, Moffle and that pink cat thing, taking his place at school by putting on a Seiya suit with a zipper sticking out of the head. That was just a kick in the family jewels because it actually looked pretty promising.

It is safe to say that this episode contributed nothing to the story’s overall progress. Nothing was done and I doubt there were any shows since the most popular characters of that park where busy trying to be a teenage high schooler. I don’t think there has ever been an episode with this little progress to be very honest.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 387

No Amagi Brilliant Park yet, so this post will have to do for today. I don’t understand why it’s so late. I can only hope that this was a one-time thing and that things will return back to “normal” next week. Short Naruto Shippuuden posts just won’t do.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 387 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.00_[2014.11.22_22.55.28]Another episode with a lot of flashback and recap scenes. Sure, there was a bit more progress than last week, but I cannot help but get a bit annoyed at those damned flashback scenes. Even more so when it’s about uninteresting characters. The manga ended weeks ago, so just get to it. Stop milking this golden cow and give this show the ending it deserves.

Anyway, Obito has been dealt with. He has been defeated and was left lying on the ground with a hole in his chest. I’ll try not to full this post with spoilers because I know that not everyone has been following the manga, but I would like nothing more than to see the remaining episodes without having to be bothered by flashback and recap scenes.

Trinity Seven episode 07

A very predictable, but enjoyable episode this turned out to be. It finally seems that there is a point to this story. It’s not about the protagonist and his quest to find and rescue his friend and to create the perfect harem for himself.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_00.47_[2014.11.19_22.31.19]So that busty blonde invaded the school all on her own in order to get even stronger. She used her lewd body to distract the headmaster in order to beat him, after which the headmaster, quite obviously, pretended to be defeated by her when he caught a little glimpse of her breasts. The sad part is that I cannot blame him. My jaw would’ve probably detached itself from my head in order to fall on the floor (in the anime world, of course). Still, I cannot accept the fact that that man did so little in order to ensure the safety of his students. He basically gave up to let Arata do all the work.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_12.15_[2014.11.19_22.31.43]Obviously, Arata needs to get stronger fast. He took control of Lieselotte’s magic (or at least that which made her a demon lord candidate) and is now on his way to become one of the strongest mages around. He couldn’t have done it without Sora, his grim moiré, though. Not at all surprising that she materialized into a teenage girl. Stuff like that is obvious in these stories.

Not only does Arata need to get stronger in order to find Hijiri, his friend, but he needs to master that time control magic in order to bring back Lieselotte. He always needs to get stronger in order to fight off the evil mages that are currently making their way to that school of his. Finally, a clear goal. Things should get better from here on out.

Amagi Brilliant Park episode 07

This episode was so incredibly confusing. I have no idea what to think of Amagi Brilliant Park anymore. I know what the point of the story is, I know that we are currently working towards a goal, but the path on which we travel is just too damn weird.

[Vivid] Amagi Brilliant Park - 07 [2ADADE04].mkv_snapshot_01.18_[2014.11.15_23.40.26]I can’t stop asking myself if the park is finally open or not. Is it? I don’t know. I just saw an episode with a lot of characters on a hot summer’s day that were enjoying their day at the pool. I doubt that they built a pool outside of the park, so I am guessing that that’s either the second park that was closed or that the park finally opened and is attracting very few customers. On one hand I am hoping that the park is finally open, giving me the impression that we’re about to see a lot of funny stuff, but on the other I am kind of hopping it isn’t because of the low amount of customers that showed up.

[Vivid] Amagi Brilliant Park - 07 [2ADADE04].mkv_snapshot_14.30_[2014.11.15_23.40.47]Was it really necessary to bring in more of those weird characters? A seal pirate that wants to enslave people, but are all scared of that weird shark? Yeah… I don’t think that I would like to see many more of these episodes. I had fun because other characters managed to put a smile on my face (like that hilarious blonde dullard).

The park’s new manager saw the visitor count and even he is starting to feel some pressure. He clearly doesn’t like to lose with that cocky b*st*rd coming over to rub it in. Now would be a good time to get to work and come up with a way to attract more customers to the park. I just don’t want a “magical” solution to the park’s problems.
