Maria the Virgin Witch episode 03

This episode was alright. A lot of controversial crap that nobody was really waiting for. This episode actually reminded me why I choose to be an atheist. I cannot be like those sad priests or other “men of god” and still be able to live proudly.

[Ohys-Raws] Junketsu no Maria - 03 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_09.02_[2015.01.26_22.58.50]So “god” decided to recall Archangel Michael before he got the chance to kill Maria or to take away her powers. All of this because there were still humans around that would bear arms against the Archangel in order to protect Maria, which says a lot more about the divine than about Maria’s desire to fight against war. I mean, the Archangel claimed to interfere with Maria because she was interfering with life on earth, which was supposedly wrong. Maria, although she’s a witch, is still part of the world and has every right to interfere. It can be said that Archangel Michael is just one big hypocrite.

[Ohys-Raws] Junketsu no Maria - 03 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_17.53_[2015.01.26_22.58.59]Nevertheless, Maria has been told about how she would lose all of her powers if she was caught meddling again or if she lost her virginity. It is sad that a lot of characters knew about that before Maria. The question is; would she give up all of her power just so she can lose her virginity? Sex is great and all, but I sure as hell wouldn’t bother if I had that kind of power. There are plenty of interestingly great toys out there.

I really am curious about how she will deal with this newfound information. She does not strike me as the type of character that would go on a rampage. Nor do I see her join the church any time soon. I am kind of hoping that she will try to find a way to get even stronger so she can fight off those that mean to harm her (like that angel).

Maria the Virgin Witch episode 02

I would be a fool not to write about Maria the Virgin Witch. It is funny, it is sexy and it was obviously created for perverts such as myself. I’d be spitting the author’s face if I didn’t contribute in my own way. Writing about this show is my contribution, seeing as I cannot buy merchandise in my country.

[Ohys-Raws] Junketsu no Maria - 02 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_08.25_[2015.01.19_23.13.59]So, Maria, a supposedly evil witch, avoided a war where many lives would’ve been lost. She summoned mythical beasts to scare away two armies and sent her succubus familiar to suck and ride out the will to fight out of one side. Yes, that really, really happened and I think it’s hilarious. That succubus will stop at nothing to achieve her goals.

It makes me wonder why Maria is still feared by many people. She has been obviously helping everyone by preventing war after war, does that not deserve a little recognition? Instead people refuse to acknowledge her, try to stay away from her and speak negatively about her because of what she is. It goes to show how weak and cowardly humans are.

[Ohys-Raws] Junketsu no Maria - 02 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_21.41_[2015.01.19_23.14.21]What pisses me off is that the heavens, or in this case Archangel Michael, interfered with Maria’s mission to stop people from going to war. Yes, the angel made fair points, but she/he is trying to punish Maria for interfering with other people’s affairs when she/he herself/himself is doing the exact same thing to Maria right now. I just wished that Maria had the power to fight off that angel. The thought of her having a powerful familiar that she has yet to summon is kind of floating through my head, but we will see how Maria will deal with this new threat.

Sengoku Musou

There’s always one of these shows. This is insanely popular in Japan and the games are pretty popular in the west as well. I, too, have played those samurai games and I loved them. Just slashing apart huge armies of solders. Priceless.

Sengoku MusouThe artwork will always look alright when it comes to these types of shows. There is always plenty of backing and the characters and weapons always look good, not to mention the action scenes.

The stories, because they are based on games, aren’t always good. I have seen similar anime that turned out to be pretty bad because of a disappointing storyline. Only time will tell if this particular storyline is good or not.

This is difficult to recommend as well. I don’t know if the story is going to be good or not, so I advise you to check out the first episode for yourself.

Plot Summary: Toyotomi Hideyoshi is on the verge of unifying the realm, and all that remains is the Odawara Castle protected by the “Lion of Sagami” Ujiyasu Houjou. Hideyoshi’s personally trained generals—Ishida Mitsunari, Katou Kiyomasa, and Fukushima Masanori—as well as Ootani Yoshitsugu, Shima Sakon, and Naoe Kanetsugu are all on the frontline of the battle. Amidst the battle formation are the two young warriors of the Sanada household: older brother Nobuyuki and younger brother Yukimura. As the stalemate begins to break down, Sanada Yukimura rides on a lone horse into the fray. His brother follows him right after.

Junketsu no Maria

Awwww yeah! I was waiting for this. Well, this and the new Tokyo Ghoul and many, many other titles this season. I read up on this one and I was simply attracted to the story. I sounded so funny and interesting that I just had to see it.

Junketsu no MariaSo now I have seen the first episode and I can safely say that my expectations were met. It looks great. The characters look superb, it is very detailed and although it’s pretty ecchi, they haven’t overdone it. It is really, really good.

The story? Very interesting! I already knew, because this show is so ecchi, that this is going to be another one of those underrated gems. I am okay with that. Anime about witches have been very good lately. This is definitely one of them.

I honestly do recommend this. I found it funny and very interesting. It truly is a promising show. I am already thinking about writing about Junketsu no Maria; it’s just that good! I advise you to at least try the first episode.

Plot Summary: During the Hundred Year’s War between England and France in the Middle Ages, a powerful witch named Maria lives in a secret forest with her familiars. She hates the war around her, and will sometimes stir up trouble against the church that does nothing to stop it. Her interventions into the world, however, run against the plans of heaven, earning her the attention of the Archangel Michael.

Mushishi Zoku Shou 2

Hell yeah! I am so glad that there’s yet another season. I find the Mushishi series strangely relaxing. I fire up an episode and watch how Ginko travels that world of his in search of strange phenomena. Very relaxing indeed.

Mushishi Zoku Shou 2The artwork is still as great as ever. It looks so good and it’s incredibly detailed. The style itself is brilliant and I am pretty sure that anyone in his/her right mind wouldn’t change a thing about it. It’s too damn good to change.

I don’t think I need to say anything about the story either. There are very few people out there that don’t know about the Mushishi series. It has become quit famous over the past few years.

I do recommend this. Watch the previous series if you haven’t already. I promise you that its time well spent.

Plot Summary: Mushi; the life-blood of nature. They exist everywhere in various forms: micro-organisms, fungi, bodies of water. Sometimes, they’re even mistaken to be plants, animals, or spirits. But regardless of their appearance, they exist, nonetheless, living the only way they know how. At times, their actions can cause strange or unexplainable phenomena. Enter Ginko, the Mushishi (mushi master), as he continues encountering, studying, and dealing with the mysterious mushi along his journey into the unknown.
