Akame ga Kill! episode 03

I am going to have to accept the fact that Akame ga Kill! is filled with corrupt and insane characters, which are characters that I really can’t deal with. I seem to take it personality every time something awful happens. I sit in my chair hoping for them to get killed, which makes me sound like a bad person.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.01_[2014.07.23_23.27.55]I think that Tatsumi needs to relax. He has a huge mouth and so little skill. He actually thought that he could somewhat hold his own in their group. He thought that their abilities weren’t that much better than his and that they only thing they had on him was experience. Boy, he learned once and for all that those guys live in a very different world than him. He saw how strong they are, he saw how determined they are and now he knows how they live and what they expect from him, which is to fight and survive at the end of the day. Sounds very easy, but that kind of goes away when you actually watch the story unfold.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.57_[2014.07.23_23.28.41]I’m guessing Akame, which is the most important character on the show I’m guessing (seeing as her name is in the title), Mine and Tatsumi are going to become very good friends. All three of them are very different, yet they all have the same goal. I’m guessing that some sort of diabolical love triangle will emerge as both girls might end up falling for their latest member.

Anyway, I sat here and watched the members of Night Raid fight off a group of enemies that tried to find their hideout. They were all killed without much of a problem, but Tatsumi nearly ended up getting killed because he couldn’t handle his opponent. He could only hold him down so that Mine could finish the job. How embarrassing…

Sword Art Online 2 episode 03

This season is really messed up. Most of the good anime air on the same day and I cannot write three posts in one day. That’s too much. So I had to spread it all out throughout the week. Sword Art Online gets prioritized a little, of course.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.06_[2014.07.21_22.33.34]So we learn a bit more about Shino or Shinon (in-game name of hers) during these twenty minutes. It finally explained why she plays Gun Gale Online (GGO for short) and why she has such a fear of guns. She was forced to kill a man when he tried to rob the bank that she was in. She obtained his gun and shot the man several times in order to protect herself from that lunatic. It was quite funny how she gave him that headshot. I immediately thought that she was meant to be a sniper, but that would be rather crude considering the situation. Panic disorders are no laughing matter.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.27_[2014.07.21_22.34.10]I was surprised to see Kazuto playing ALfheim Online during this episode. I thought we already passed that point? Asuna has been saved and she is a free woman again. In fact, she has finally become his woman now. Focus more on that or on Gun Gale Online and not on elves and whatever it is that elves do in that world nowadays.

I cannot believe they are making me wait another week before Kazuto starts in his investigation. He will have to train his in-game character quite a bit before he becomes a target. Shino has done quite well as a player and seems to be his next target. I’m already wondering how Kazuto will stop that lunatic from killing Shino. So many theories running through my anime-infested head…

Francesca: Girls Be Ambitious

Wauw… Japan did it again. It created yet another “WTF-show”. Japan is well-known for its strange commercials, absurd anime and disturbing songs. This particular anime doesn’t really help Japan’s image to be very honest.

Francesca Girls Be AmbitiousThe artwork is a visual blow in the face. There’s a little character in the show that wears some kind of skill on her head, old fashioned underwear and a black cape… What the hell is up with that? The artwork is insane…

It’s not the worst story in existence. It may be an anime short, but with ten minutes per episode and twenty-four episodes total… Well… You could really make something here… Yes… Something… Oh god have mercy…

This was unreal. The overwhelming artwork and disturbing story make for a dangerous combination. Only your die-hard comedy fan would probably love this sort of thing. Powerful stuff. I might give the second episode a try…

Plot Summary: Exorcist works in Hokkaido to exterminate all of the zombies that have been plaguing the land. However, although she can handle the perverted Takuboku Ishikawa, she finds herself at a loss when faced with the revived Shinsengumi. Within the chaos, she finds herself having to borrow the help of undead idol Francesca and her dog Franken.

Majimoji Rurumo episode 02

Yeah. I must. I love this too much to leave it alone. It was the same with Witch Craft Works. I watched the first episode and I just fell in love. I watched the first episode of Rurumo and I immediately realized that I wanted to watch and review this from start to finish.

[Anime-Koi] Majimoji Rurumo - 02 [h264-720p][7AACC633].mkv_snapshot_07.04_[2014.07.18_23.38.17]Of course, that’s only provided that Rurumo doesn’t drastically change any time soon. Everything is just great right now. Rurumo is quite the dullard and she knows nothing about boys and their desires. Well, maybe she does know a little, but the fact that she accepted to live in the same room as him says a lot. No girl that knows what boys want would ever agree to that. That’s why I love this show. The protagonist is an idiot that thinks about R-rated stuff all the time, but fails to put the dots on the “I” whenever it matters. Those two just make an excellent combination.

[Anime-Koi] Majimoji Rurumo - 02 [h264-720p][7AACC633].mkv_snapshot_20.05_[2014.07.18_23.39.02]I liked that part where Kouta’s friends were ogling Rurumo when she was changing into something more comfortable (I guess?) – Which was all the time first time I realized that Rurumo-chan really is a child. It may have been wrong of me to see her as a female character that would know about sex. You cannot expect a little girl to know about sex (those that do will go to hell).

I don’t like the fact that Rurumo-chan used memory alteration magic to become part of Kouta’s family. She is now a niece of some kind and is accepted into the household just like that. I think it would’ve a lot funnier if Kouta were to hide her a little bit longer in his room. Still, Rurumo-chan is pleased with it and that is all that matters to me.

Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance

How this managed to get a higher rating than Majimoji Rurumo I will never know. All I will say is that I found this to be quite disappointing. I was expecting something more original than this.

Seirei Tsukai no Blade DanceThe artwork, I think, is not the problem here. The characters look alright and they obviously invested a lot of time and money in making it look so detailed. So yeah, very little complaints about the artwork right now.

The story is what disappointed me. It’s so predictable and not all that original. It has the elements of Zero no Tsukaima (magic and all that) and Infinite Stratos (where only one boy can do what usually only girls can do). I just wasn’t very impressed by it.

Well, I suppose it’s a little ecchi so I might give the second and third episode a try, but I will only recommend this to comedy and fantasy fanatics for me. This will really depend on a person’s personal preference.

Plot Summary: Only a pure maiden can have the privilege to contract with a spirit. In here, Areishia Spirit Academy, trained maidens of noble families are gathered and given an elite’s education to become spirit contractors. A boy, Kamito, peeped by accident at a girl, Clair, while she was taking a bath and he ended up making a contract with the spirit she wanted. Yes, Kamito is an irregular boy spirit contractor whose existence was thought impossible until now. “You stole…my spirit…you have to take responsibility for it!” “Huh?” “You have to become my contracted spirit!” What will Kamito’s destiny lead to?
