I’m afraid I’m starting to lose sight of the story here… Wasn’t it supposed to be Youto and Tsukiko versus the world? At first it was everyone versus the cat god, but that’s just not doable anymore… What am I watching nowadays?
The odd thing is that not much has changed since the first episode. All of the characters are still very much the same. The emotional Tsukiko that we once knew has disappeared into the past, almost forgotten by most. The rest is still pretty much the same. It’s kind of hard to accept it all, but it still revolves around Youto and his perverted lifestyle, and that none of the characters have made any progress. It first seemed that Youto would hook up with Azusa; wrong. Then it seemed that he would with Tsukiko; wrong. Then finally with Tsukushi; probably also wrong. Now it just looks like it’ll be no one at all. It’s a very vicious circle.
It almost seemed as though Tsukiko was about to confess to Youto. Yes, almost. I cannot understand why Tsukiko is so focussed on how long she knows Youto. It’s not like the one who knows him the longest has dibs. Thank god it doesn’t work that way, otherwise I would’ve committed suicide (you’d understand if you knew what I would’ve ended up with if it worked like that).
I’ll stop here now. There’s not much more I want to say. Nothing’s changed, period. The cat god is still tormenting everyone, the characters aren’t progressed and my hopes for this show are getting smaller and smaller. So disappointing… My hopes for this show were ridiculously high a few weeks ago, especially when Tsukushi, my favourite character on this show, started to get interested in Youto (or at least his twin brother).Read More
Oh come on! This episode should’ve aired three weeks ago already. Why is it only happening now? The door to a world of untold possibilities has finally been opened this week! Let’s face it; this was a long time coming.
Daisuke, Kyousuke’s old man, basically kicked Kyousuke out of the house for the time being. He thought it would be a good idea so that Kyousuke could focus on his studies. He thought that giving Kyousuke an apartment, a place where he can hang out with girls without having to worry about adults, would help him study for his exams.
I thought for sure that Kirino would be the first one to show up, I really did. Imagine my surprise when Ayase shows up with the corniest excuse you could possibly imagine. It just goes to show that Ayase is finally serious about him, that she’s finally ready to make her move. It’s about time something good happens again.
The one thing that I didn’t like was Ruri’s appearance. I cannot believe she’s still going after Kyousuke after all that she’s done. She must have balls of steel or something. She showed up at his door with a packed lunch, hoping that she could eat it together with him. I’m sorry, but when you dump a guy like she did then you know it’s over.
I have high hopes for next week’s episode. Kyousuke has his own place now and Kirino would be able to resist visiting him soon, I’m sure of that. I can only hope that Kyousuke picks the right girl this time, because I don’t think I can handle another disappointing relationship like that. It’s bad enough that Ruri still shows up, but seeing it happen again would be too much.Read More
It’s about time the story got exciting again. It’s been a very long time since I had a smile on my face throughout one of Space Brothers’ episodes. I really hope they can keep it up this time without using too much comedy.
Hang out your flags and bust out your air horns; Hibito is back on earth. It was funny how he tried to remain his posture to make people believe he was alright, only to collapse on a bed soon after. I never knew that a person weighed six times more than usually when coming back from outer space. Very informative indeed.
Another reason to hang out your flags and bust out your air horns would be the fact that everyone’s favourite psychic finally told Mutta-kun about what’s to come. Let it be said that I still don’t like the idea of having a psychic appear on Space Brothers, an otherwise realistic and informative show. The idea alone is a devastating blow to the show’s realism.
It seems that Sharon’s probably sick. Amanti saw a vision of Mutta’s sad face. She saw that he was sad because she saw that someone close to him was very sick. They immediately focussed on Sharon. They also showed us a scene where she dropped her phone, saying that she’s been dropping a lot of things lately. It could be a tumour or some kind of muscle disease.
I guess drama is going to play a vital role in Space Brothers during the next couple of weeks, I like that. I believe that drama has always been one of Space Brothers’ strong points. That’s why I’m really looking forward to next week’s episode. I do hope that Sharon survives though, as I took a liking to that character.Read More
Sweet mother of god, how unexpected! How could I not see this coming? How… aw, who am I kidding? The predictability in Hataraku Maou-sama is shocking. It’s almost as though I’ve already read the manga and know what’s going to happen next…
Suzuno turned out to be part of the church, what a surprise. We all knew she was. Hell, some of us knew that there was more to that girl than met the eye, and that she could prove to be dangerous. All of that was common knowledge already, so why? Why spend almost half an episode on something we already knew?
We all also knew that Mitsuki, that blue-haired shrimp, was from Ente Isla and probably from the church as well. They really left nothing to the imagination, so why did they focus so much on Emi’s surprised expression? If that was supposed to be funny then they’ve got a really strange sense of humour.
It’s up to Sadao now to help out his friends now. Suzuno has Chiho covered and Mitsuki is keeping Emi busy with his ability to render her powers useless. Sadao will have to harvest fear in order to regain some of his powers and to save his friends from being killed. I doubt that Mitsuki’s abilities work on Sadao as well, so that, at least, promises to be quite the interesting match-up.
And last but certainly not least; Olba. That’s right, Olba. The old man survived and seems to be back in action, which makes me question Hanzou’s loyalty. He could’ve been waiting for Olba’s return all this time. Either way, he’s back. Sadao should’ve finished him off when he had the change. Now he’s probably going to pay for it. We’ll see…Read More
I cannot help but feel disappointed after seeing this episode. I expected more, a lot more. I’m also slowly losing sight of the story. What is it that they’re trying to accomplish here? There are only a few episodes left, yet there’s still so much ground to cover…
I still don’t see the point of introducing Emanuela to the story, I honestly don’t. She is quite annoying when you see too much of her. She’s cocky, pretty selfish and doesn’t think before she acts. Under that mask of innocence also lies a rude, immature and dishonest person. To hell with being tsundere, she’s just messed up.
You don’t give a child to ability to wish for whatever she wants, you just don’t. Throwing something like that into a story like this is plain stupid, because we all know what’ll happen next. Of course, they’re throwing in twist after twist, but that only works for so long before people figure out the pattern, just like I did this week.
I also don’t like the way they’re constantly playing with the “cat god’s” image. Is he a bad guy? Is he a good guy? Is he simply looking to be entertained by fulfilling those ridiculous wishes? We’ll never be able to tell like this, although the needle is pointing towards him being a bad guy after taking control of Azusa’s body like he did.
Now, I don’t know if this was a joke from the fansubbers or if it was really said in Japanese, but I can’t appreciate it when Azusa says “calm your t*ts” to Youto. That kiss made up for that, even though Youto already said that he doesn’t see Azusa as girlfriend material, but I still can’t seem to forget about that. I can only hope that the next episode will be better than this one.Read More
