Gate: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri

The much-anticipated Gate has finally arrived then… Alright… I must admit that I enjoyed watching the first episode. But I will say this; although the start really does look promising, this type of show can go either way after just a couple of episodes.

Gate Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku TatakaeriI have very little to no complaints about the artwork. Maybe some of the characters could’ve looked a bit better, but that’s alright. It’s pretty detailed and I like the setting. I expect a lot from this just by looking at the artwork.

Let’s face it; characters going to other worlds in order to fight and whatnot is nothing new. It’s been done before. Even in this particular setting. Sure, there are quite a few differences, but the similarities are still there. I wonder how Gate will stand apart from all the others.

I am going to give this a fair try. The first episode interested me and I am definitely going to watch the second episode, at least. I suggest you give this a try as well. You might really end up liking it.

Plot Summary: A gate appears in Tokyo’s Ginza district sometime in the 21st century. From the gate pours out monsters, knights from middle-age Europe, and other fantasy-like beings, and they kill many of the citizens of Tokyo. This event is known as the Ginza Incident. The government sends a small group of soldiers from the Japanese Self-Defense Forces to the alternate world beyond the gate. Led by otaku soldier Yōji, they find that the villages in the world are being attacked by a dragon. An elf girl who is a survivor from the dragon’s rampage joins the group in their travels across the dangerous new world.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 418

I don’t understand why they even try. Honestly, they are completely ruining Naruto Shippuuden with these crappy fillers. Writing these posts feels like a chore and quite frankly I just want to stop. If things don’t get better after two weeks from now then I’m stopping for real.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 418 [720p].mkv_snapshot_06.40_[2015.07.03_23.45.24]I mean, most of this episode wasn’t bad. It was pretty good. We saw Kabuto again and found out that he had the nerve to switch sides once more. We saw Naruto a little, we saw how Guy was about to make the ultimate sacrifice in order to hold Madara at bay. And yeah, then came the fillers. I honestly already know about their past. I know about Guy’s past and about Lee’s past. We’ve already seen it countless times. There’s no need to waste any more time on it. Stop filling, goddammit! It seems that the next episode is going to suck as well.

DanMachi episode 13

Yeah, I suppose I do find this ending rather good. It may have been a little rushes and not all questions were answered, but I suppose it’s because I wanted to see a lot more of DanMachi. It saddens me that it’s already over.

[HorribleSubs] DanMachi - 13 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.29_[2015.06.28_23.40.00]DanMachi truly was this season’s underdog. Many people thought that it was another dirty anime when they saw that busty loli Hestia and thought that it was going to be more fan service than anything else. Things soon changed after only a couple of episodes. People came around and saw DanMachi for was it truly was; a great show.

I’m not sure if there’s ever going to be a sequel. I haven’t heard anything yet. Not even an item about the possibility of a sequel. That’s why I’m kind of satisfied with this ending as it had everything you could wish for; a badass boss, a huge fight and a happy ending. That finishes things pretty nicely if you compare it to the endings of other shows.

[HorribleSubs] DanMachi - 13 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.00_[2015.06.28_23.40.24]I knew that Bell-kun’s latest skill would be the key to him defeating that boss. His attack being amplified like that allowed him to slay that boss before it could destroy them all. That’s all very cool and impressive that Bell-kun managed to rise to the occasion, but I still think that it could’ve been avoided if Hestia hadn’t used her divine powers after Bell-kun had already won the day (so to speak). It seems kind of pointless if you think about it. Bell and his friends were safe and so was she, so there was no point in having her interfere. I wonder if that happened in the manga as well or if it was just their way of ending the show. Either way; I am pleased. I’m glad I watched this show and that I wrote about it.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 417

This is just the worst… They are really ruining the show. Their desire to milk this show as much as possible is really getting out of hand. I mean, five months of fillers and we get one or two good episodes. Now we get 2 more fillers and 1 week break in between. That’s ridiculous.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 417 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.14_[2015.06.26_23.39.58]I cannot believe that I’m still watching this. Hell, I cannot believe that I still dedicate precious time to write about Naruto Shippuuden even though they are ruining it. I must’ve been a true fool to think that the fillers would’ve been over and done with after five months of waiting. It will never be over. As long as they can make some money off of it they will continue to make and air nonsense episodes in order to drag things out as much as possible. Probably just so that the spin-off manga, a story where are favourite characters are all adults and have families of their own, gets ahead so that it can be green-lit for animation as well.

Kekkai Sensen episode 11

Well, I am happy that they didn’t waste an actual episode on those recaps last week, but I feel as though this episode could’ve been like that as well. I’m not saying it was an uninteresting episode, but it was about a character that doesn’t really interest me personally.

[Ohys-Raws] Kekkai Sensen - 11 (MBS 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_00.04_[2015.06.23_23.13.05]More than half of this week’s episode was dedicated to that girl and her brother. We were shown how they grew up, what hardships they faced together and how they came to be the individuals that they are today. That’s all nice, but I feel as though they’ve spent too much time on those two characters this week. Some of it wasn’t even necessary.

Anyhow, the last six or so minutes were really about Leonardo getting his ass handed to him by that blood brood brat. I’m not sure how things will go from here on out, but he needs Leonardo’s eyes to complete whatever ritual he’s trying to complete. Klaus and his men need to show up fast in order to help their friend and save the world once again.
