Young Black Jack

A lot of people have been making a fuss about Young Black Jack. Black Jack was a manga from somewhere in the seventies and it was very popular back in the day. There are a lot of parodies, movies and series about that character so it’s no wonder that many decades later they’re still pushing out Black Jack content.

Young Black JackThe artwork is more than acceptable from what I’ve seen. I’m not sure which studio is working on this since I didn’t do my homework, but it looks rather nice. I mean, the protagonist alone could be picked out of a thousand character line-up. I like that.

This story, unlike the main one, is about Black Jack’s journey as a student if I understood correctly. We will see how this young prodigy will earn his medical degree.

I think it’s safe to recommend this. It’s definitely an amusing watch. A lot of Black Jack fans are going nuts over it so there’s really no point in what I say now. They will be watching this either way.

Plot Summary: Kuroo Hazama, an aspiring young medical student, studies diligently from Dr. Jōtarō Honma, a top surgeon who had saved Hazama’s life when boy Hazama was badly injured by an unexploded bomb. Someday in the future, Hazama will be known as “Black Jack,” a surgeon with unsurpassed skills but without a license.

Soukyuu no Fafner: Dead Aggressor – Exodus 2

A lot of anime fanatics are nuts about this show. I honestly don’t see it. It’s amusing to watch alright, but it’s by no means one of the best shows out there. I pretty much prefer any of the Gundam series over this one any day of the week.

Soukyuu no Fafner Dead Aggressor - Exodus 2The artwork is alright. The level of detail is definitely there and I like a lot of the characters. They have that “old school” feel to them. I like that.

My problem with the series is the story. You get lost quite easily. A lot of scenes are vague and the outcome tends to be clear before it even happened.

I personally cannot recommend this. Only to mecha fans. I myself like to watch it only when there’s nothing else left to watch or do.

Plot Summary: 2150 A.D. The battle with the Festum, the silicon life-forms from distant outer space, had reached a new dimension. The North Polar Meir that was crushed during the First Azure Operation had dispersed its fragments all over the world. They all started activity on their own as independent Meirs. Most of the Meirs harbored hatred towards humanity and challenged a fight, however, a portion of the Festum chose coexistence with mankind. Amongst the crossfire, the Ryugujima island alone disappeared from the forefront of battle and continued its silence. The island had gained a means to converse with the Meir since their encounter with Misao Kurusu two years ago. The children of ALVISS had been searching for a way to understand the enemy as they prepared for battle. And now, once again, further evolution was about to befall the island. A girl that understands the language of the Festum, and a girl protected by a Festum. When the two meet, the doors to a new universe opens.

Gangsta. episode 12

This was a very weird ending. It would’ve been okay if the second season was already announced before this episode aired, but there’s no news about the possibility of a second season, yet it ended with nothing but a cliffhanger.

[Ohys-Raws] Gangsta. - 12 END (ABC 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_17.13_[2015.09.27_23.56.29]Yeah, I said it, this episode, however good it was, pissed me off a little. I enjoyed watching it a lot and a couple of questions have been answered, but the way it ended was just ridiculously annoying. It ended with a huge cliffhanger that simply makes you want to know what the hell will happen next, yet there’s no guarantee that this will continue.

Watching Worick get stabbed and thrown out of a window was one thing, but we have no idea what’ll happen to Monroe or any of the Twilights. We don’t even know how this war will go down, yet it ended anyway with nothing finished. A lot of fans will be disappointed if it really does end like this. I’ll be keeping my eyes open for news of a second season.

Gangsta. episode 11

I really can’t be all that excited about this episode. I mean, they basically used this episode to build up some suspense before the final episode. That’s why there wasn’t much action other than that kid being cut up ‘n stuff.

[Ohys-Raws] Gangsta. - 11 (ABC 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_20.31_[2015.09.20_23.50.42]I think it’s about time the guild did something. They don’t fight against the normals because of the law that they have sworn to uphold, but surely there’s a loophole to bend that law a bit. I would go with self-defense or something like that. Just go out there and start killing those cocky bastards already instead of sending others.

I’ll just come out and say it; there’s a lot of ground left to cover. A lot. I have no idea how they plan on ending this but I still have high hopes for it. I just hope that a lot of questions get answered next week and that we get to see that two-faced old man die. He sat there at that meeting and lied like a politician when he was the one responsible for all the death and destruction.

Gangsta. episode 10

This post is going to be very simple. This episode was pretty uneventful and I’m also short on time. I kind of don’t even want to admit how predictable Gangsta has become. I kind of already see the ending. What a shame…

[Ohys-Raws] Gangsta. - 10 (ABC 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_21.15_[2015.09.13_23.31.42]It’s no surprise that Nicolas got injured again. He takes way too much drugs to enhance his abilities and it is only a matter of time before it really bites him in the ass. I’m not even sure he’s going to survive this whole ordeal. He couldn’t beat that girl and she seemed ‘okay’ compared to the other girl that showed up this week.

I am pretty sure that that busty bimbo is going to be reunited with her brother and that she’ll try to convince him to switch sides and help out Worick and Nicolas. She’ll probably succeed. Don’t even get me started about the families. Things have become very predictable there. I just hope that I’m wrong about what’s to come.
