Garo: Guren no Tsuki

I’m not so sure which one is better; this one or the other version that aired last year. I’m guessing the problem with this one is that it’s essentially the same; use your magic armour to fight horrors with the goal of defeating the big boss at the end.

Garo Guren no TsukiI’ll admit that I like the characters so far. I think they’re a little bit better than the characters from last year’s version. I was never really fond of that playboy knight and that woman. These characters are easier on the eye.

Story-wise it’s a bit of a risk. It really is too much of the same thing. The Golden Armour comes back once again and will be used to defeat all evil.

I honestly don’t know if this will work out or not. The first two episodes didn’t really impress me as nothing special has happen thus far. It’s too much of the same thing at the moment. Time will tell if that’ll change, but go ahead and give the first episode a try.

Plot Summary: Heian-kyou, capital and the center of elegant, aristocratic culture, is heavily guarded by a spiritual force field — or so it seems. In reality, onmyouji (court magi who create the spiritual force field) can only defend the palace located in the northern part of the city; in downtown, monsters known as “horror” that feast upon human souls roam after sunset. There are, however, a group of heroes protecting commoners from “horrors” in darkness.

Dance with Devils

Saw the first episode and I ma, as I honestly already expected, very disappointed. This is almost like Diabolik Lovers but with singing. You’d have to be a pretty fruity guy to actually like this sort of thing.

Dance with DevilsThe artwork is surprisingly weak. The characters don’t stand out and the level of detail is rather disappointing. You could put any of the characters in a line-up and you probably wouldn’t be able to pick them out of there.

Still, the artwork I could live with. It’s the story that just kills it for me. There’s singing, pretty-boy demons and a helpless heroine that’s now under their care. It’s filled with so many clichés that it’s making my head ache.

I cannot recommend this. This just seems to me like another hit and miss. They tried, I suppose that’s all that matters in the end.
Plot Summary: Ritsuka Tachibana is a female second-year high school student who attends Shiko Academy in Shiko Town. She enjoyed her school life while living with her mother Maria, but one day, that balance fell into ruin when she discovers several of her attractive, male classmate are demons.

God Eater episode 09

This is really messed up. I mean, we had like three nonsense episodes with nothing but recaps and whatnot. That was pretty bad enough, but now it seems we’re going to have to wait a few months before we get to see the final few episodes because they messed up the production.

[HorribleSubs] GOD EATER - 09 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.06_[2015.09.29_23.47.34]I’ll admit; anime that has been adapted from games tend to be big gambles. Most of them turn out bad and not very profitable, but I can’t remember the last time when a company screwed up this badly. A lot of bad news items have been circulating lately and I think it’s time we face facts; they screwed up a lot. Apparently it’s gotten to the point where they disappoint all the fans by making them wait a few months so that they can come back from their many screw-ups. They finally did it right for a change and then they still find a way to mess it up… Incredible.

[HorribleSubs] GOD EATER - 09 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.33_[2015.09.29_23.48.11]I’m going to have to say that I’m kind of disappointed by the thought that Lenka is really dying. I don’t know if he’s going to die a hero’s death or if they somehow find a way to save his life. Either way; things are going to get hectic. I just have to give him two thumbs up for wanting to carry on instead of just wasting away slower than usual.

They really did a good job on this though. I mean, the story’s good. I never even saw that twist coming. I never knew they were going to use that Russian chick to try and kill her captain. At least we know who’s really pulling the strings. It just goes to show you that companies and organizations just cannot be trusted. They’re probably building a weapon instead of a shield. We’ll find out eventually.

God Eater episode 08

I suppose this was a good episode. Rather, I feel that this may have been a real eye-opener and I hope it continues. I would always choose a rebellious character over a character that always follows order like a good puppy.

[HorribleSubs] GOD EATER - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.47_[2015.09.22_22.58.53]I’m talking about Lenka of course. I mean, the guy hauled ass on his last mission and saved that Russian girl, a fellow new-type, so I would’ve thought that they would show him some more respect after all that. Not many could’ve returned alive after all that, even if he did have his captain by his side for half of the journey. What bothers me is that his commanding officer, that busty major, still refuses to acknowledge him. I mean, he just saved two teams from getting killed during a search and destroy mission and I still don’t think that she acknowledges him. She’s just way too stubborn.

[HorribleSubs] GOD EATER - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.47_[2015.09.22_22.59.07]Not that we don’t have bigger things to worry about. At least Lenka does. He doesn’t have time to worry about not getting the amount of respect that he deserves because he just learned that he could very well be dying soon because he’s too compatible to wield his God Arc. I never knew that someone could be too compatible for something. I certainly never knew that being too compatible, which could also be seen as being too good, could kill you (other than making other people jealous and them killing you out of jealousy). I’m pretty sure we’ll get to know more about that during the next episode. There’s probably a way for him to survive, seeing as he’s the show’s top character. Those tend to stick around.

God Eater episode 07

I am going to keep this week’s God Eater post short since I have to write yet another post about a rather disappointing show. That’s why I have to keep this one short and simple since I just don’t have the time to do anything else.

[HorribleSubs] GOD EATER - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.15_[2015.09.08_23.55.58]Alright, so Lenka’s weapon turned out to be less dead than he was told by Alisa. I don’t even understand why he listened to her in the first place. She is completely useless right now. She let fear control her and now she can’t even defend herself much less help others. She, without those pills, is what one might call ‘dead weight’.

I just think that Lenka’s captain could’ve done things differently. I think it’s cool that he helped those people with their new way of live, but letting Lenka go back was way too risky. Half of that little city got destroyed in the process and I’m sure it’ll only get worse since more and more Aragami seem to be able to get passed those threes. I’m sceptical about the whole thing.
