Akame ga Kill! episode 21

Oh come on… I don’t really mind if they kill off less popular characters like Chelsea, but now they’re actually killing off badass characters that I really didn’t want to see dead. Night Raid keeps getting smaller and smaller…

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 21 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.28_[2014.11.24_23.02.55]First thing’s first; Budo died. Mine used up all of her power and may or may not have damaged/destroyed her Imperial Arms, Pumpkin, in order to finish off that cocky man. What bothers me is that it has been said that he could fight Esdeath on equal terms. Really? Is Esdeath so weak that she could get killed by Mine’s blast? Or does it basically depend on the kind of weapon one is using? Esdeath uses ice attacks and Budo uses electricity attacks. I can understand that Budo might have a bit of an edge seeing as water (and I’m pretty sure ice as well) conducts electricity, putting Esdeath in a rough spot. But no, I don’t think he could ever beat Esdeath.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 21 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.51_[2014.11.24_23.03.16]Susanoo is dead. Once again another great character had to be sacrificed so that Tatsumi, a whinny child that does not live up to his words, may be saved. That was not an equal exchange, even if Budo got killed. Susanoo is what made Najenda strong. Now she’s just another woman with abnormal strength and a fake arm that she can eject towards things. Not really much of a threat.

Night Raid only has five members now. Sure, the Jaegers only have four, but they have Chelsea’s Imperial Arms and Sheele’s Imperial Arms. God only knows how many more of those weapons they have. They just need to find suitable people to wield those weapons in order to outnumber Night Raid. Things are not looking good for Night Raid right now.

Sword Art Online 2 episode 20

What a big let-down. I was really hoping to see how Asuna would deal with the uncomfortable situation she finds herself in at the moment. To think that I would have to go back to watching them play that games again…

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 20 [720p].mkv_snapshot_12.45_[2014.11.23_22.40.25]Asuna has to deal with the decisions that her mother made for her. Decisions that change her life completely. She would have to change her school, stop seeing Kazuto and stop playing those games, which would also mean that she can no longer see her virtual AI “daughter”. All this in just a couple of days if I understood correctly.

What does Asuna do in order to deal with that information? She plays that game. She does not look for help elsewhere, she does nothing to change her mother’s mind and she does nothing at all that would otherwise change the path that her mother has set for her. To think that I would have to schedule two short posts today…

Naruto Shippuuden episode 387

No Amagi Brilliant Park yet, so this post will have to do for today. I don’t understand why it’s so late. I can only hope that this was a one-time thing and that things will return back to “normal” next week. Short Naruto Shippuuden posts just won’t do.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 387 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.00_[2014.11.22_22.55.28]Another episode with a lot of flashback and recap scenes. Sure, there was a bit more progress than last week, but I cannot help but get a bit annoyed at those damned flashback scenes. Even more so when it’s about uninteresting characters. The manga ended weeks ago, so just get to it. Stop milking this golden cow and give this show the ending it deserves.

Anyway, Obito has been dealt with. He has been defeated and was left lying on the ground with a hole in his chest. I’ll try not to full this post with spoilers because I know that not everyone has been following the manga, but I would like nothing more than to see the remaining episodes without having to be bothered by flashback and recap scenes.

Akame ga Kill! episode 20

That’s right. I knew this would happen. I told you! Normally I’d start another flame war when something happens that I already saw coming a long time ago, but not this time. I am very happy with this episode and I don’t think I would’ve changed a thing.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 20 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.27_[2014.11.17_22.47.58]Lubbock is dead. I knew it would happen sooner or later because of his attitude. The guy has a problem with women. He becomes incredibly vulnerable whenever there’s a girl involved. He suddenly becomes this gentlemen and slightly lets his guard down. I knew that he was going to be next when I saw him fight against those two freaks a few weeks ago. That is why it came as no surprise that there was yet again another woman involved right before he died. He couldn’t even see her coming when she tried to stab him in the back (literally).

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 20 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.14_[2014.11.17_22.48.44]Mind you, Lubbock, although he is weird and has serious issues, was one of my favourite characters. I prefer him over Tatsumi, actually. What can I say? The guy was a total badass that never stopped thinking about his next move. He even managed to take down that guy, Shura I believe, before he died. Now that was definitely a total badass that died this week.

And Tatsumi? Useless (as usual). The guy did nothing. He couldn’t do anything to help, he couldn’t do anything to get them out of there and he even ended up getting captured. I don’t care if he was up against a guy that could fight head to head against Esdeath. Getting captured (again) was just stupid. Now we’ll have to wait another week to see what Esdeath will do to him.

Sword Art Online 2 episode 19

Yosha! This is what I like to see. Enough with all the pointless quests and riddles and whatnot. It has been bugging me for the last few weeks, but now I finally see one more goal in sight. It’s about damn time, too.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 19 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.49_[2014.11.16_23.28.42]Poor Asuna. She awoke, mainly due to Kazto, from her two year slumber after a great ordeal that would have a very bad impact on your average mind. I’m pretty sure that a lot of Sword Art Online survivors need(ed) a lot of help from psychiatrists in order to get over the things that they experienced when they were trapped inside that game.

Now then, Asuna was one of those people. She experienced many bad things and has shown remarkable progress. She picked up her studies, continued her daily life, made new friends and ended up with a reliable boyfriend that would do anything for her. Now it seems that her mother, whom seems very pretentious, wants her to stop seeing Kazuto and do as she says from now on.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 19 [720p].mkv_snapshot_12.51_[2014.11.16_23.28.48]Man, I do not envy Asuna at all. She left one hell to wake up in another. What’s that woman’s problem anyway? So what if her daughter needs to catch up for the last two years? I believe she had a very valid excuse as to why that is. Just leave her alone to find her own way and let her work towards her own goals instead of deciding what she should or shouldn’t do.

You know, I am kind of hoping that Asuna will just run away soon. Just make her run away to Kazuto’s house. I’m sure he wouldn’t mind, although the same thing couldn’t be said for his jealous little sister. Either way, Asuna deserves a fair shot at life. She shouldn’t worry about impressing her mother. Just ignore that snob and do whatever it is that makes you happy.
