Gate episode 09

Boy, this episode was just one big rollercoaster ride. So many interesting and amusing scenes that I’m thinking about watching this episode again tomorrow. Gate is turning out to be quite the memorable show if you ask me.

[HorribleSubs] GATE - 09 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.43_[2015.08.29_23.26.08]We learned a lot more about Youji this week. Apparently he’s quite a skilled soldier if I am to believe the rumours. Why doubt it? I saw what the Japanese did to the Americans this week. It was hilarious to see American soldiers get slaughtered by Japanese soldiers, even though they had the advantage of outnumbering the Japanese. America, like many other countries, want access to that gate even though it’s on Japanese ground. They, apparently, don’t mind using force. The whole world seems to be scared of Japan getting a hold of all those resources.

[HorribleSubs] GATE - 09 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.56_[2015.08.29_23.26.43]It was also quite noticeable how the princess and her companion have changed since they came to Japan. They realized that Japan is way ahead and way more powerful. But instead of getting scared they actually seemed to be enjoying themselves, especially when they visited a hot spring. Japan might actual win that princess over to their side.

My attention is focussed on Rory though. Yeah, the episode ended with her forcing herself on Youji, but we all know that nothing will happen. Youji will do the ‘right’ thing and resist her charms. What I am focussing on is the idea of Rory attacking those cocky American soldiers. I can’t wait to see what happens if they actually stand face to face with Rory and the others.

Overlord episode 08

This episode was incredibly epic! I am so glad that I chose to believe in Overlord. It hasn’t disappointed me yet. Waiting for the next episode will be a real challenge. It’s not like I can go read the manga; the anime is way ahead of the translated edition of the Overlord manga.

[Ohys-Raws] Overlord - 08 (AT-X 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_07.46_[2015.08.26_23.33.10]So Momonga’s allies were slaughtered like pigs by that insane woman. I liked that little twist about that little boy actually turning out to be a girl. It’s so simple and unexpected; I like it. But I think I can make one thing clear here; they weren’t friends. Momonga feels no sadness about their deaths. It surprised me a little to hear him say that he’s mad because his work went wasted. He wanted to use them as tools to spread his name throughout the city. I don’t know if I should find that awesome or unnecessarily evil, but I like where this is going.

[Ohys-Raws] Overlord - 08 (AT-X 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_20.49_[2015.08.26_23.33.50]I also kind of hope that Nabe will deal with that annoying geezer fast and show up with his head just as Momonga is about to fight that woman. I would really like to see the look on her face as she realizes that she’s not up against your average adventurers. They did a great job at making the viewers hate her guts. I just want to see her sweat just before she gets defeated. The thought of her realizing that she has no chance of victory after all that she has said and done is simply orgasmic. I really, really hope that I won’t be let down next week.

Chu Feng: B.E.E

So there’s no actual God Eater episode this week, which makes me really sad, but at least they didn’t waste an actual episode on fillers. I was actually surprised by this one. I thought for sure that I would end up hating this. In the end I found this rather watchable.

Chu Feng B.E.EI mean, the artwork is nothing special. It looks alright, I suppose. The characters look nothing special but at least the mechs and the tech looks alright. Fact is; I have seen a whole lot worse than this. That’s for sure.

The story is questionable. It’s a really dark story from the looks of it and I definitely like the action. People are getting shot and crushed all over the place. I just find the story questionable since the first episode didn’t have a big impact. I just know there was a hostage situation going on but I have no idea why. It’s hard to know what’s going on right now.

This is fifteen minutes of action-filled sci-fi anime. I’m not going to say that it looks promising. It doesn’t. The artwork is alright and the story is, at this time at least, pretty questionable. You’ll just have judge this one for yourselves. I for one will be giving the second episode a try.

Plot Summary: In 2017, a group of genius scientists achieve a remarkable breakthrough in bioengineering. However, all the new technologies are put into military use, beginning a new round of arms race. Vanguards, as the most significant achievement of the modern bioengineering and the most advanced weapon, are widely utilized in the race. Although vanguards are exceptionally combat-effective, their life expectancy is shortened by the nanomachines they use. Usually, most vanguards will retire from the army after a number of years in service.

The heroine Liuli has also consumed too much of her lifespan after executing missions for a long time. With only 380 days left in her life, Liuli receives a new mission, to rescue a hostage being held in a civilian facility. It is without doubt a difficult mission for a vanguard like Liuli, who only knows how to kill and battle. However, Liuli obediently decides to accept the mission in the end.

During the mission, Liuli surprisingly finds that the man who holds the hostage was once a vanguard. The former vanguard Zhongrong Zhou cries and asks the government to hand over the son of Eden. As a vanguard, Liuli feels deep contempt against Zhou. To eliminate the scum of the vanguards, a battle between two vanguards begins…

Gate episode 08

There is no denying it; this episode was awesome! I laughed so much and my eyes were glued to my screen the whole time. I could definitely do with one or two more of these episodes. I’m so glad that I picked Gate to write about.

[HorribleSubs] GATE - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.17_[2015.08.22_23.48.13]I’ll just get straight to it; the group went back through the gate to visit Japan. They were all shocked by what they saw; strange constructions as far as the eye could see. They, and by they I mean the princes and her companion, immediately realized how inferior they are. They can send massive armies to battle the Japanese military, but even she now knows for sure that there’s nothing that she or her father could ever do. At least, not as they are now. They might be able to steal some of the technology and use it against Japan in the future, that’s an option.

[HorribleSubs] GATE - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.15_[2015.08.22_23.48.50]Anyway, I also laughed (and cheered a little) when Rory took the mic. She kept calling that obnoxious woman ‘little girl’ because of their difference in age. That woman did not like it and got a nice burn when she found out that Rory is hundreds of years old. The look on all their faces as that became known was priceless and well worth watching.

I’m not even going to focus on the fact that this Otaku captain of theirs isn’t only a Ranger but a Special Forces soldier as well. That’s just too much to image. I’m just shocked that it turns out that he was married at some point in his life. To an actual woman. I honestly don’t even want to know why they broke up. I’m guessing it has something to do with anime and manga.

Overlord episode 07

Another pretty good episode. I just hate that we still haven’t got a clear picture of Momonga’s enemy. Yes, there are a few devious characters walking about, but they strike me as small fries. We still just know too little even though we’re halfway.

[Ohys-Raws] Overlord - 07 (AT-X 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_06.49_[2015.08.19_23.50.55]The first half was kind of strange. Momonga was still continuing his quest in order to make money. He decided to have his reputation of slaying the “forest king” spread throughout the land so that he can get better paying quests. He wants to make a name for himself and I’m not quite sure why yet. Yes, the guy needs local currency, but I doubt that that’s really all there is to it. If he really needed money and nothing else then he would’ve just taken some from others, seeing as there’s nobody there strong enough to defeat him or his underlings.

[Ohys-Raws] Overlord - 07 (AT-X 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_20.07_[2015.08.19_23.51.24]I’ll admit that I was a little bit disappointed when I saw that the “forest king” was nothing more than a giant hamster that was created by one of Momonga’s old friends. I may be more disappointed with myself than with the show, seeing as I couldn’t stop laughing at something as stupid as that. That hamster looked really funny.

But that’s not what it’s all about now. It’s about that psychotic girl and her attempt to abduct Momonga’s employer. He can use any magical item so that makes him perfect for her plan. We’re already seven weeks into the show. It’s about time we got to see some real action. Maybe we’ll get to see Momonga sweat a little.
