Kamisama Kiss 2 episode 03

I had to wait two whole weeks to see this episode. Why was that necessary? Why did Kamisama Kiss have to take a one week break after only two weeks? I’ve seen Shirobako so I like to think that I know a little about how that system works. Did some idiot kid mess up in Japan? Or did some hyperactive girl finally have a car crash after racing from A to B?

I am forced to keep this short even though Nanami-chan got such an important mission. I want to say so much about that. Like how that gay god keeps involving himself with Nanami and how he constantly ends up helping her. He must really care for her since his friend gave her that godly status in season one.

I cannot understand why Nanami-chan would have to protect the gateway to the underworld. Anyone could’ve seen that coming. She ended up in hell with the human that’s trying hard to get yet another immortal body. I wonder how he will treat Nanami-chan once he becomes a big shot of the underworld again.

Kamisama Kiss 2 episode 02

I just have to write about this show. I remember when the first season came out and I underestimated it. My review was rather dull and, now that I’ve seen all of it, rather underrated. Kamisama Kiss is a really great show.

[Zero-Raws] Kamisama Hajimemashita S2 - 02 (TX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_06.14_[2015.01.14_23.21.13]I love Nanami. I absolutely love her. She looks great and she is the very definition of adorable. In fact, they should just change the word adorable to Nanami. It’s her personality that makes her so suitable despite being human. The world would be a better place if Nanami was god. Nobody in his right mind would kill anybody in Nanami’s name. She’s just that pure.

I am also a little happy that her little monkey transformed into a little boy. We all knew that something like that would happen eventually. A crow transformed into a boy idol, a snake transformed into Mizuki and a fox transformed into Tomoe. It was just a matter of time before that little monkey transformed as well.

She has to convince those gods that she is suitable and that she (and other humans) has value. I don’t see a problem with that to be honest. Anyone could see that Nanami is a kind, honest girl that would be willing to help anyone to the best of her abilities. That is definitely god-worthy. The chances of her being attacked or shunned somehow are very, very small I think.

Kamisama Kiss 2

Kamisama Kiss returns with a vengeance! I absolutely loved the first season and I knew that a second season was only a matter of time. I truly regret not writing about the first season. I still clearly remember picking a highly inferior show to write about. That won’t happen again.

Kamisama Kiss 2The artwork is just great. There’s a very subtle balance between hilarious scenes and overall good artwork. I simply love the style. All the characters look really great and I don’t think that I would change anything for fear of ruining the show.

Absolutely nothing wrong with the story either. Season one was a delight and I am certain that this season will be just as good (if not even better). Only the OP could’ve used work. Season one’s OP was much better.

Seriously, watch this. It is really, really good. It is funny, it is quite romantic and it is overall really, really interesting. Both seasons are worth the watch.

Plot Summary: After her father having run away due to gambling debts, and being evicted from her apartment, Nanami meets Mikage, a strange man who is afraid of dogs. Nanami “saves” Mikage from a dog and tells him her story. He gives Nanami his house as a thank you for saving him. Nanami accepts the offer, due to having nowhere else to go. Mikage draws her up a map showing her where to go. Upon arriving, she finds that it is a rundown shrine. Nanami is then almost killed by Tomoe, who was expecting Mikage to finally return after his 20 year absence. She is then greeted by both Onikiri and Kotetsu, as the new land god of the shrine. Unable to accept Nanami as the new land god, Tomoe mocks her then leaves the shrine, which, without Tomoe’s power transforms back into a run-down state. Not wanting to rob Tomoe of his home and realizing that her powers as a god are too weak anyway Nanami leaves, but eventually is brought back by Tomoe after she seals a contract with him, making him her familiar.

Garo: Honoo no Kokuin

I am really doubtful about this one. I really liked the rough action, the sex and the whole idea of having to defeat an entire empire to set your people free. Then the protagonist started to fight and I started to doubt the whole thing.

Garo Honoo no KokuinI somewhat like the artwork. It’s dark and quite detailed. However, I do not like that golden armour of the protagonist. It looks cheap and it make me think about Majin Bone, which is lacking on many departments, artwork being one of them.

I must also be honest in saying that the story isn’t anything special either. A baby, born from a witch, gets saved by a mysterious knight before he got burned to death. He grows up to become a hero that will eventually save his kind from a horrible fate. Interesting, but by no means special.

It all comes down to personal taste. I will give the second episode a try because I want a better idea of what I can expect from this. You might as well give the first episode a try, unless you don’t like action anime with demons and magic in it.

Plot Summary: Mendosa, the chief adviser of the king of Valiante, begins a campaign to hunt down “witches,” resulting in the deaths of many magical knights and their sorcerer assistants. Anna, a sorceress married to the knight Herman Lewis, gives birth to a son before her execution. Herman takes their child, Leon, and flees, raising him to be the heir of the legendary Golden Armor. By the time Leon grows up, Valiante is completely in the control of Mendosa, who drives out Prince Alfonso and his mother. Alphonso decides to seek out the man who inherited the Golden Armor to reclaim the throne and save his people.

Kuroshitsuji: Book of Circus

I knew there was going to be another season of this. The first and second seasons where both quite successful. They were aired in the west and the sales were pretty great. All the conditions for another season were basically met.

Kuroshitsuji Book of CircusThe characters are practically symbolic. You can put them up anywhere in the world and a lot of people would probably be able to recognize them. I know I could recognize Sebastian and Ciel out of a hundred character line-up. It’s all so damned detailed…

What’s there to say about the story? A strange boy with a lot of money makes a deal with a demon and that demon becomes his demon butler. Interesting, unique and it’s proven to be quite amusing.

Anyone familiar with the first and second seasons will undoubtedly watch this. No doubt in my mind about that. I suggest you give the first two season a try as well before you start this one (if you haven’t already seen them).

Plot Summary: The TV series will adapt the Noah’s Ark Circus Arc, picking the manga story back up from the point at which they diverged. This arc immediately follows the Curry Contest Arc in the manga, which ended at episode 15 in the first season of the anime.
