Seraph of the End episode 02

I decided to give this a chance since it’s really speaking to me. It has a dark element but also a funny, light element. The main reason why I decided to write about this is because I was waiting for the second episode. I actually waited for it.

[Ohys-Raws] Owari no Seraph - 02 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_11.29_[2015.04.12_23.38.03]So things took a different turn when I suddenly see that same boy that survived the vampires’ mealtime in school. I mean, yes, I saw him in action and defeat that strange monster as though it was nothing whilst his colleagues were cowering in fear and waiting for backup, but I simply don’t understand that school part. Is it really to turn him into a team player? Because I agree with that kid; he doesn’t really need friends in a world that’s currently overrun by vampires and monsters, and where humanity has been reduced significantly. I’m just saying…

[Ohys-Raws] Owari no Seraph - 02 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_17.48_[2015.04.12_23.38.18]So yeah; it’s strange. The guy would be better of training or learning new skills than to learn about history, or how to multiply or spell. Power suddenly becomes a lot more important when your race has come very close to being exterminated. You’d want to enlist as many of those soldiers as possible to fight off the vampire and those monsters.

And the future? Well, I’m sure that Yuuichirou will be fine now that he’s made a friend. He achieved what was asked of him so now he can move on to training and missions, yes? I certainly don’t mind following his school life every now and then, seems funny, but I am more interested in the action and finding out where those vampires and monsters come from.

Arslan Senki

This was surprisingly amusing to watch. I have always been a fan of shows and movies where large armies fighting each other. Action like that has always interested me. It really never gets boring.

Arslan SenkiThe artwork isn’t bad. A lot of studios are working on this (more than usual) and you can tell that it is not a budget production as the level of detail is pretty high. I honestly couldn’t complain about the things I’ve seen so far.

The story? Well… We have a young price that doesn’t know a damn thing about the world. This will undoubtedly leave to many adventures and discoveries that involve great amounts of action.

Do I recommend it? Sure. I think I can. It looks very promising. Do you like medieval warfare and a good amount of adventure? Give this a try. I am already waiting for the second episode to come out.

Plot Summary: Arslan is the heir apparent of Pars, a strong nation that sits at the hear of the trade route connecting the East and the West. When the pagan nation of Lusitania begins an invasion of Pars, the timid Arslan is confronted with battle for the first time. His worst anxieties are realized the Parsian army falls for a Lusitanian stratagem and are routed. He barely escapes with his life, thanks to the loyal and indomitable warrior Daryun. Together they will stand against the invasion and the cruelties of fate that are about to blow down on Pars.

Seraph of the End

I’m pretty sure every anime fan has been hearing of Seraph of the End. The hype around this show was insane. Do I understand why? Meh. The first episode was a bit strange and weak in my opinion, but yes, it does look promising.

Seraph of the EndI suppose there’s nothing wrong with the artwork. It looks very, very good. The characters look nice, the surroundings are pretty cool and the level of detail is superb. I have really no complaints about the artwork whatsoever.

The story is what worries me a little. I mean, a virus breaks out any all humans older than thirteen suddenly die instantly and the world gets overrun by vampires. They did not explain that nearly enough and I cannot help but wonder what the hell is going on. The first episode simply didn’t really explain much.

I do recommend this to all action fans. It looks very promising. I am not going to give this a negative review because of a cryptic first episode even though it looks so promising. I am definitely going to be waiting for the second episode.

Plot Summary: After an unknown virus wiped out all adults on earth, vampires appeared and ruled over the surviving children, treating them like livestock. Yuichiro Hyakuya survived along with other orphans by giving their blood to vampires, until Yuichiro escaped four years ago. Now he is a member of the Moon Demon Company, a unit in the Japanese army dedicated to hunting down the vampires he blames for the death of his family.

Tokyo Ghoul √A episode 12

Well, I don’t think it would take a genius to see that there’s definitely another season coming in the (near) future.  And why not? The Tokyo Ghoul series have been a huge success in ratings and the first season has done quite well in sales as well.

[Ohys-Raws] Tokyo Ghoul A - 12 END (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_07.41_[2015.03.27_23.52.15]Now then; Ken has once again lost another friend. First it was the old man and now his best friend, Hide. I thought it was quite touching how that guy knew from the start that Ken had become a ghoul. He knew and he still helped Ken by taking him to safety after his fight against the almighty Amon-kun. Not only did he do that because he was his friend, he did it even though he was fatally wounded himself. He didn’t care about seeking medical attention, he just wanted to drag Ken to a quiet spot where his colleagues wouldn’t be able to find and kill him. Now that’s true friendship for you!

[Ohys-Raws] Tokyo Ghoul A - 12 END (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_18.57_[2015.03.27_23.52.39]And Touka? Yeah. She just almost everyone. She still has a few friends left on the planet, but the Anteiku staff have given their lives in the attempt to defend their beloved café.  It’s a damn shame that it burned down, but Touka already decided to continue its legacy if I saw correctly. Nice to see that the deaths of so many of her friends didn’t end up destroying her life.

As for Ken… Well… He took Hide’s body back to his colleagues. Probably so they can give him a proper burial. Was it a smart move? Not at all. He was standing against a guy that took on the real One-Eyed Owl on his own. How the hell is Ken supposed to beat someone like that when he couldn’t even deal with the ghoul that he helped save a few weeks ago? We’ll just have to wait till the next season I guess…

Parasyte episode 24

And so our happy ending finally arrives. Parasyte truly was a stroke of brilliance. This author isn’t all that known when compared to some of the others out there. He really did it big when he created Parasyte. This anime adaption is one to be remembered for sure.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 24 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.29_[2015.03.25_23.39.44]So things went back to normal or as normal as things get in a world where parasitic killing machines live amongst you. They adapted to the human way of life. They started eating the same food, doing work to earn money and they seemed to have learned to control themselves, which goes to show that a display of necessary force was all that was really needed to get them to back down. Well, that and the fact that Shinichi and Migi killed the strongest of them last week. I guess this means that humans are once again on top of the food chain in the world of Parasyte.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 24 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.51_[2015.03.25_23.40.14]Now then, I knew that insane killer would show up again at some point. I had no idea it was going to go down that way, but I am not entirely sure I disliked it. The only thing that I disliked is that I have no idea if he survived or not. I mean, a superhuman punch to the face from an emotional boyfriend trying to save his girlfriend sounds pretty damaging to me…

Nevertheless, humanity has won and Shinichi survived all of his trials and has started a new chapter in his life. He is going to finish school, work on his relationship and hope that one day he might be able to speak to Migi again. I’ll admit that I don’t see the value of Migi going to sleep for a long time, but it do think it’s a nice touch. Well done, Mr. Iwaaki (the author).
