Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans episode 08

Hmm… Well, it’s not that I could not see this coming, but I had at least hoped that they would punish that greedy, selfish old man. I figured that they wouldn’t just kill him for as long as he’s worth something.

[HorribleSubs] Mobile Suit Gundam - Iron-Blooded Orphans - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.57_[2015.11.26_00.30.39]Yeah, it kind of annoyed me to see that playboy treat Orga like a kid (not that he’s not) even though they successfully infiltrated their ship and gave some of their best fighters a run for their money. But what can you expect? Orga just barged in and requested a meeting with their boss so that they could become part of their organisation and gain their protection.

That part I could already see coming. I knew that he was going to ask them for help after he proved that they are not just a bunch of helpless kids. It may even have been a little cocky to request even more help by helping them sell some stuff to replenish their near-empty bank account. Goes to show that it always comes down to money. It always has been that way and it always will be that way.

Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen episode 08

This disgustingly underrated show of this season just keeps getting better and better. There are a lot of things that I want to say and even though I am still not completely over my gold, I simply refuse to keep this post short.

[HorribleSubs] Utawarerumono - Itsuwari no Kamen - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.11_[2015.11.24_23.49.33]What I want to get out in the open is the thought of us, the fans, getting to know Haku a bit better. We know almost nothing about him or where he comes from. Now it seems that people have started to take notice of him and, like me, want to know more about him. But that, like with most delicate things, is like a double-edged sword; there’s a chance that if Haku were to remember where he came from that his entire personality changes and that he chooses to go back. I don’t mind if he goes back to wherever he came from at the end of the show, but I wouldn’t like to a change in his personality.

[HorribleSubs] Utawarerumono - Itsuwari no Kamen - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_22.50_[2015.11.24_23.50.09]There. I said it. Now that that’s done I can focus on this week’s main event; the possibility of a corrupt general. Well, I say possibility because I hate to jump the gun. But yeah, he’s a dirty pig that ended up endangering everyone at that party by trying to get huge insects to fight each other for sport. That’s bound to go wrong at some point.

I’m not sure if that’s enough evidence to convict that pig (whose name I can’t be bothered to write due to it being so damn annoying). That would mean that a new general would be needed and I am kind of hoping that the owner of the inn or one of Kuon’s other ‘mothers’ gets that spot. Slim that of that happening, but hey, one can still hope.

Seraph of the End: Battle in Nagoya episode 07

A highly uneventful episode no matter what people say. The pace has slowed down again I think. I wish things would just pick up. I’d say that next week’s episode looks very promising, but I have been disappointed before…

[Ohys-Raws] Owari no Seraph 2 - 07(19) (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_20.32_[2015.11.23_23.16.17]We knew that they were walking into an ambush and we also knew that they were going to save their comrades before they decided. That was pretty much set in stone last week. That is why I cannot understand why it took almost half an episode for the first shot to be fired. I dare say that they tried to fill the episode up a bit.

What also bothered me is that it took another five or six minutes before they actually rushed in and the battle started. At that point the episode was already 75% over. I can only hope that next week’s episode, where Yuu-kun supposedly fights against that vampire noble, will be a lot better than this one and contains a lot less idling around.

Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans episode 07

This was a very good episode. There may be very little that I want to say about it, but that doesn’t change the fact that I really enjoyed watching it. This is how it should be; action, action and a little bit more action to top it off.

[HorribleSubs] Mobile Suit Gundam - Iron-Blooded Orphans - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.59_[2015.11.18_23.37.03]Our newest adversary appeared during last week’s episode and he, some fat guy that ran when their old base got attacked, wants his ship back even though he left it there when he ran. His ship survived the attack and now he thinks he can get it back. I don’t see it that way and I think that Orga agrees. He left it behind so they took it for themselves.

Now, they managed to survive the attack by pulling a few daring moves. The mobile suits of both parties got severely damaged before a temporary truce was reached. I say temporary because we all know that it won’t last. Either those kids become the enemy again or that greedy, selfish old men becomes the enemy. I’m kind of hoping for door number one since I wouldn’t mind an extra dose of action.

Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen episode 07

I still think this show is a masterpiece, but I must admit that I’m starting to get a little confused with all these new characters making their appearance. I might have to watch one or two episodes again in order to get back on track.

[HorribleSubs] Utawarerumono - Itsuwari no Kamen - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.11_[2015.11.17_23.47.36]The thing that confuses me most is the amount of princess. All these characters keep piling up and it’s really starting to become a harem for Haku to enjoy. The problem with introducing a new character each week is that the protagonist doesn’t make a lot of progress with any of the other characters. It’s been quite some time since we some quite a few promising scenes.

I thought, after Kuon’s ‘mothers’ made their appearance, that we were finally going somewhere. Maybe Kuon was going to open up a little, maybe that other princess was going to admit to herself that she’s interested in Haku or maybe the inn’s owner is going to continue teasing Haku a little bit more because he looks like someone she used to know.

[HorribleSubs] Utawarerumono - Itsuwari no Kamen - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.49_[2015.11.17_23.47.51]Instead we get another princess that ended up revealing herself for the first time ever. She’s supposedly very old, but instead we get another loli character that cannot be considered a potential girl for Haku’s little harem. I mean, she’s really tiny. In fact, one of her servants actually had to give her a spanking because she kept bothering people (eating their food, trespassing, destroying stuff, you name it) and whatnot. It’s obvious that she’s going to be a handful and I think that she shows quite a bit of promise, but I would really prefer it if they stopped pushing all those ‘princesses’ every week. It’s been like that ever since Haku and Kuon reached the capital…
