Houkago no Pleiades

This has to be one of the very few mahou shoujo anime that I actually find watchable. I mean, I am not at all a big fan of mahout shoujo anime because they are too girly and become really boring after just a while because you just can’t take it seriously.

Houkago no PleiadesYes. It does look a little girly. Little girls in “cute” outfits that fly around on sticks and cast magic in order to achieve their objectives… What can you expect from a mahou shoujo anime? This is what they look like.

I must admit that I’m a little bit interested since there’s a male character in the show that doesn’t seem to transform into some “cute”, gay-looking mage. I find that very interesting, although I’m not a big fan of that alien blob.

This is going to be one of those see-for-yourself-shows. I myself am giving this the benefit of the doubt and will try and watch the second episode, even though I’ve already seen a lot of stuff that I don’t like.

Plot Summary: Subaru is a young girl who discovers that her best friend Aoi is part of magical group trying to gather engine fragments so that a little being from Pleiades can return to his home. Subaru considers joining them as she was chosen by the Pleiadian, president of this afterschool club.

Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works 2

I have not yet seen all the episodes from the first season. I mean, I’m not exactly in a hurry to see something that I’ve already seen. We all know how it’s going to go down, but we’re just seeing it from a different perspective. That’s just not good enough for me.

Fatestay night Unlimited Blade Works 2I won’t even bother to go on about the artwork. It’s extremely good. The characters are great, the level of detail is amazing and there isn’t a single thing that I would change.

No, it’s the story that’s the problem; I’ve already seen it several times. Sure, they are showing it from Rin’s point of view, but that doesn’t change the fact that I know exactly what’s going to happen, when it’s going to happen.

Go ahead if you’re a true Fate/Stay Night fan. You’ll undoubtedly be amazed by this.

Plot Summary: Fuyuki City—a city surrounded by the ocean and the mountains becomes the setting for an age-old ritual. To realize the mythical Holy Grail, which is said to grant any wish from its possessor, seven masters are given seven heroic spirits chosen by the Grail. These heroic spirits or servants are: Saber, Lancer, Archer, Rider, Caster, Assassin, Berserker.

Each master will enter into a contract with their assigned servants and battle the other masters and servants to the death until only one pair remains…

This is the “Holy Grail War.”

Maria the Virgin Witch episode 12

I will have to admit that this wasn’t one of the endings I had hoped for, but I guess it’s the best next thing. Am I satisfied? Sure. A good ending for yet another underrated show. If only more people had given this a fair chance.

[Ohys-Raws] Junketsu no Maria - 12 END (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_00.24_[2015.03.30_23.14.45]Nevertheless, I am still not satisfied with the fact that that mercenary was allowed to leave like that. He is alive and well and was even given the right to speak to Archangel Michael when he asked him what he thought of Maria. Of course he’s going to say negative things. But that’s not the point. The point is that he’s still alive after raping Maria, killing his chief and so many others. That insane monk got killed when he approached Michael, but that mercenary will be allowed to live, after which he will probably continue to wage war in order to loot and loot.

[Ohys-Raws] Junketsu no Maria - 12 END (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_15.18_[2015.03.30_23.15.11]I also did not like the idea of Maria becoming human so that she can live her life and have children of her own. The only thing that I liked about that is that Ezekiel got spared and will be reborn as Maria’s child. That part I definitely liked. But the thought of a powerless Maria does not suit me one tiny bit to be honest.

May review may not reflect it, but I really was satisfied with the episode. It was a nice ending to an overall good show. There will always be one or two things that you won’t agree with it in the end, but you know it’s a good show when it ends and you already start wishing for another season of it. I can only hope to see more of this someday…

Maria the Virgin Witch episode 11

I suppose this was a really good episode in general. A lot of good things happened and I am pretty sure that more good things are about to happen. That all being said, I cannot help but feel that one or two things did not go as I had hoped.

[Ohys-Raws] Junketsu no Maria - 11 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_08.25_[2015.03.23_23.46.55]First thing’s first; that insane mercenary was allowed to leave after all the thing that he had done. He raped Maria, gave her to the church and almost killed the boy that Maria loves. When is it enough? Why is he not being punished for his crimes? I understand that Maria hates violence and will always interfere when war breaks out. But did she really have to be like that when it involved the one guy that took everything from her? The one guy that almost got her killed. It was more than just foolish to let him go with that horrible woman, especially after she acted like a complete idiot.

[Ohys-Raws] Junketsu no Maria - 11 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_20.29_[2015.03.23_23.47.17]It goes without saying that this story would’ve gone completely different if it were up to me. It probably would’ve been a horrible story, but I would’ve had that guy die a hundred times over. I would’ve removed a limb during every episode. His other arm during this week, a leg next week, the other leg the week after that, and so on…

Still, a lot of good came from it. Maria has her power back, she has a boyfriend now and she’s standing face to face with Archangel Michael once more. I doubt they’re going to fight again, but something tells me that Maria is going to be victorious if they were to find one another. I don’t know why. All that’s left now is to see what kind of happy end we’ll get to see.

Maria the Virgin Witch episode 10

I am really happy that Maria has made all of those friends recently. She may not have her powers back, but she has friends that are willing to support and help her now that she needs it. That just goes to show that she doesn’t stand alone, at least.

[Ohys-Raws] Junketsu no Maria - 10 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_00.17_[2015.03.16_23.49.46]So Maria was supposed to die at the stake for being a witch. They were planning on burning her even though she saved their lives many times over. It makes you wonder why she even wanted to help them. The war has started once again and things are getting out of hand. Many people are dying and many properties are being destroyed now that Maria isn’t around to prevent them from going to war. People must’ve realized this by now, so why support the church when they are so useless instead of supporting Maria, whom has been stopping one war after the other all this time? It’s so stupid.

[Ohys-Raws] Junketsu no Maria - 10 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_20.16_[2015.03.16_23.50.09]I also thought that that English witch was quite right when saying that the angels and that their creative is wrong. They do now know love because love if something that humans created. It’s something that defines humanity, so it is only natural that the heavens don’t understand it. She definitely won that argument, even though she nearly got killed.

What now? As Maria going to get her powers back? Is she going to fight the heavens again? There are, if I am correct, two episodes left so a lot can still happen, but I suspect that that mysterious entity is going to involve itself with Maria soon. Why else approach Maria regularly like that? It obviously has plans for Maria.
