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.

Trinity Seven episode 07

A very predictable, but enjoyable episode this turned out to be. It finally seems that there is a point to this story. It’s not about the protagonist and his quest to find and rescue his friend and to create the perfect harem for himself.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_00.47_[2014.11.19_22.31.19]So that busty blonde invaded the school all on her own in order to get even stronger. She used her lewd body to distract the headmaster in order to beat him, after which the headmaster, quite obviously, pretended to be defeated by her when he caught a little glimpse of her breasts. The sad part is that I cannot blame him. My jaw would’ve probably detached itself from my head in order to fall on the floor (in the anime world, of course). Still, I cannot accept the fact that that man did so little in order to ensure the safety of his students. He basically gave up to let Arata do all the work.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_12.15_[2014.11.19_22.31.43]Obviously, Arata needs to get stronger fast. He took control of Lieselotte’s magic (or at least that which made her a demon lord candidate) and is now on his way to become one of the strongest mages around. He couldn’t have done it without Sora, his grim moiré, though. Not at all surprising that she materialized into a teenage girl. Stuff like that is obvious in these stories.

Not only does Arata need to get stronger in order to find Hijiri, his friend, but he needs to master that time control magic in order to bring back Lieselotte. He always needs to get stronger in order to fight off the evil mages that are currently making their way to that school of his. Finally, a clear goal. Things should get better from here on out.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 386

Yeah, it is safe to say that the series won’t be ending after the 400th episode. They are going to milk this money cow as much as they can by the looks of it. I honestly just skipped through this episode. I couldn’t be bothered to watch all of it.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 386 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.39_[2014.11.15_23.39.37]You know, it would’ve been okay if those flashbacks where something knew. They just weren’t. I’ve seen and heard it all before. Why bother with all of that now? The last week it was the same story. Recaps and flashback scenes. This episode just didn’t contribute anything new. Not even at the end. It was the same old lets-try-to-talk-this-out-without-fighting-any-longer scenario that we have come to know and hate. Just shut up, fight this out and give us a great ending to a great series without dragging things out any further.

Trinity Seven episode 06

Quite the hectic episode. I also found it rather difficult to follow because certain things did not make sense or seemed rather unnecessary. All in all not a bad episode though. My interest in that headmaster has definitely grown.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 06 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.13_[2014.11.12_23.42.34]So Lieselotte, the seventh and final member of the Trinity Seven group, revealed herself last week and made it quite clear where she stands. She wants power and knowledge, which are really the same thing, and doesn’t mind going to extreme lengths to obtain it. It doesn’t bother her to be known as a dark mage. She just seems to go through anyone that stands in her way. I like that. I don’t care what people think about that character. I’ve seen remarks about the way she is dressed and the way she talks, but I like that character quite a lot.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 06 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.50_[2014.11.12_23.43.06]Also, I finally have a favourite character on the show. Levi is my number one. The way she talks is awesome, her ninja way is cool, her “Magus Mode” outfit is very friendly on the eyes and she doesn’t go head-on for the protagonist like all the others characters. She is definitely the greatest character on this show.

Anyway, I still cannot accept that Lieselotte stole Arata’s power like that. What’s was the point of it all? I wouldn’t mind if that headmaster showed us what he’s capable of and took care of Lieselotte. Just capture her. She launched a full-scale attack on the school so I don’t think she’ll be walking away as though it never happened.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 385

It finally happened. The manga ended after approximately 15 glorious years. It leaves behind a long-running show, a lot of movies and sh*tload of merchandise all over the world. There are almost no anime and manga fans that don’t know about Naruto.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 385 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.54_[2014.11.08_23.11.59]I might actually have to readjust my theory about the series ending after the 400th episode if they keep going like this. It started out pretty good and for a second there it started to look like a really promising episode. Why did they have to ruin it with recaps and flashback scenes? If you stuff every following episode with scenes like that in order to drag out the series, than I feel that I must cut my losses right now and watch only the final episode. It is time to stop worrying about making more money and time to start thinking about giving this a good, worthy ending. These series are worth that much, at least.
