Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen episode 24

It was a very nice episode. We were rewarded with the mother of all battles and now it’s time to end this. I haven’t heard anything about the possibility of a second season. Since this was based on a game it’s definitely within the realm of possibilities.

[HorribleSubs] Utawarerumono - Itsuwari no Kamen - 24 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.24_[2016.03.21_23.31.39]Vurai is dead. Oshutoru transformed, the two of them fought and Haku’s personal servants, whom were assigned to him by his late brother, sealed the power of Vurai’s mask, allowing Oshutoru to finish him off. This will probably not end it all. The other generals won’t take it lying down and one of them, arguably the strongest one, is still missing.

I had hoped that Haku would take the reins. I honestly doubt that he will though. I don’t think that Oshutoru will either. I’m guessing that the princess will recover soon and that she will be the empire’s figurehead after all. I may think the right person for the job is Oshutoru and maybe Haku if they were in a tight spot, but that girl? Not really.

Gate 2 episode 10

What the hell is going on with this week? It keeps getting worse. I have been having trouble sleeping, I always seem to find myself in traffic jams and today one of my pet snakes has passed away… Seriously… What the hell is going on?

[HorribleSubs] GATE - 22 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.13_[2016.03.16_23.53.53]I can only hope that the next Gate episode will be absolutely epic now that the JSDF is finally going to take action by defending the Jade Palace. It shouldn’t take them long to take care of that insane prince without creating a huge bloodbath. Just snipe the living hell out of him or order one of the spies in the palace to assassinate him.

Let’s face it; things keep getting worse. That slave girl’s plan is going smoothly. Even princess Pina has been imprisoned by her own brother. A single bullet between the eyes of both that slave girl and the prince should be enough to solve all of their problems. Either that or the old emperor could be cured soon so he can undo all damage his idiotic son has done to his empire.

Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen episode 23

I honestly do not understand this episode. I’m just a little disappointed in myself that I missed a really obvious Easter egg all this time. I actually feel a little stupid.

[HorribleSubs] Utawarerumono - Itsuwari no Kamen - 23 [720p].mkv_snapshot_12.13_[2016.03.14_23.22.18]Haku’s older brother was the one that created all those life forms so that he wouldn’t feel so lonely. A few of them he created to look like relatives; his wife, daughter and I also think his younger brother. I just noticed that Oshutoru (in general mode) looks a lot like Haku. That could be because Haku’s older brother may have created him in Haku’s image.

I know it’s silly. Something as that has been on my mind ever since I saw the episode. But I just can’t focus on the fact that Haku’s still running all over the place with the gang in order to pursue justice. I’m not just going for the obvious by saying that the tactician is behind it all. I’m currently reserving judgement.

Gate 2 episode 09

I consider this episode to be the calm before the storm. I won’t even bother wasting any time by writing about the Japanese media. Life is way too short to be concerned about something as corrupt as politics or the media.

[HorribleSubs] GATE - 21 [720p].mkv_snapshot_15.23_[2016.03.09_23.42.29]Still, I do have to admit that I’m rather interested in knowing why those politicians are so eager to send out soldiers to ‘protect’ the peace by taking over the empire if they absolutely have to. I cannot help but wonder about what they would gain from doing that. Is it because they want that suicidal girl back as soon as possible? Surely that can’t be it.

Youji is basically standing in the middle of it. He is with his party (as usual) and he does not know that his superiors are about to give an order that might very have a huge impact on that world. People are going to get killed if they don’t realize soon that they’re being manipulated by an evil bunny-girl, which is something I thought that I would never say in my lifetime.

Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen episode 22

It’s a damn shame that Haku is once again being portrayed as a lowly outlaw. It baffles me that he isn’t just making himself known to the public. Just let them tell him how he’s related to their deceased emperor.

[HorribleSubs] Utawarerumono - Itsuwari no Kamen - 22 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.19_[2016.03.07_23.28.28]The sight of watching Haku and the rest sneak about the city in order to break Oshutoru out of that prison was kind of depressing. They could’ve gone about it so much easier and safer, but no… They just had to take a detour and take risks like that. I know that I’m making it sound rather simple, as though everyone would just believe Haku if he were to announce that he was the former emperor’s younger brother, but I am sure that there are ways to prove it. He would reunite the eight pillar generals, free Oshutoru by clearing him of all charges and set up a rescue party to bring back Munechika. Even I must admit how simplistic that sounds…
