Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei episode 17

Another marvelous episode. I think it’s a disgrace how the ratings have dropped. It had an eight average when the show first started and still rising as time went on, but these past few weeks have been a disaster for the ratings. Why? I don’t understand. I really don’t.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 17 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.45_[2014.07.27_23.06.07]So the organization behind all the sabotages decided to turn up the heat in order to sabotage First High from winning any more matches. Their methods and priorities have been completely altered by the fact that Tatsuya defeated Third High. They no longer care about student safety. They just want to ensure that they come out on top at any cost. I noticed one of them saying that their lives depended on it, which means that they are not the masterminds. There is someone out there so powerful and influential that those sick pr*cks no longer mind killing students because they themselves are scared.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 17 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.48_[2014.07.27_23.06.21]Anyway, Tatsuya didn’t seem bothered. He stayed one step ahead of those fools by giving Miyuki the ability to use Flying Magic, which is one of Tatsuya’s newest sequences that has only been released last month. Never mind that Azusa already discovered that Tatsuya is Taurus Silver, seeing as it’s only a matter of time before the rest of the students discover it.

Also, wasn’t it brilliant how Tatsuya prevented that guy from tampering with Miyuki’s CAD? He was mad as hell and took him down within seconds. Fools. You cannot fool Tatsuya. His greatness overwhelms all else. It’s only a matter of time before Tatsuya strikes back. The only difference is that Tatsuya, unlike those morons, never fails to accomplish his missions.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 369

I think next week’s episode should be the last of the flashback episodes. I’ve seen quite enough of the First Hokage and Madara when they were younger. Madara was never really one of the characters that sparked my interest, so that’s why I sound so unmotivated.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 369 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.40_[2014.07.26_23.34.52]I have to admit that the battle between Madara and the First Hokage was definitely worth mentioning. The first actually managed to stop Madara and his Susano’o covered Tailed Beast from destroying everything. To think that the Nine Tails was that easily stopped is just madness… It took Naruto’s father a lot of trouble and two lives (his wives’ and his own) to seal away a part of the Nine Tails within himself and in his newborn son. The First just stopped him with just his Sage Mode and is putting severe pressure on Madara right now. It would seem that all the Hokage pale in comparison to that guy… Until Naruto, of course…

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei episode 16

Amazing episode. I would expect nothing less from Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei. Now some cocky high school boys, tomorrow some cocky world leaders. Tatsuya definitely has it in him. What a great character.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 16 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.06_[2014.07.20_23.02.41]I kept thinking about Tatsuya’s family after he defeated that cocky brat. His family still annoys me more than any of the characters. Do they know about his secret life? Do they know that he is a rare breed of talent and one of the very few people on the planet capable of doing what he does? They should kiss his feet and beg him to market some of his inventions.

Yep, I still cannot get over it. I remember how his father stood there as some no-name butler was insulting him as though he was a piece of trash from the streets. He ignores Tatsuya’s existence completely when he’s not being rude to him. I would pay the animators to create a scene where Tatsuya was giving that guy hell. I really would.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 16 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.48_[2014.07.20_23.03.20]Anyway, Tatsuya and his two friends won the match against Third High. Well done. Tatsuya showed a couple of near-impossible moves and probably blew his cover in doing so. It’s obvious to anyone that he’s battle tested and ridiculously talented, but when you see the guy do something that you thought was impossible… Well… It kind of raises a red flag. No doubt that that old man is interested in Tatsuya, but after he witnessed Tatsuya instant-heal himself… Boy, it’s going to get rough. I feel it. That old man isn’t fooled so easily and he had his eyes on Tatsuya from the very beginning. I can’t wait to see what happens.

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei episode 15

Dammit all! The suspense nearly killed me! The next episode should be the one where Tatsuya takes on those two prodigies. Not that this episode wasn’t good. It was great, especially since some of my suspicions have been confirmed.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 15 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.34_[2014.07.13_23.08.14]Tatsuya, the fairy master and the big ogre from course 2 have been fighting schools and completely dominating them. Tatsuya is great. By the way, have I mentioned that Tatsuya is great? Well, just so you know, Tatsuya is great. I got quite annoyed when that red-eyed freak told his friend about how Tatsuya poses no major threat because he only has one mildly dangerous weapon in his arsenal. If they can get him to attack head-on, despite him obviously being battle-tested, they think they will win easily. Yeah right… As if Tetsuya has nothing else up his sleeve. He hasn’t even been using his own custom CAD’s yet…

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 15 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.55_[2014.07.13_23.08.35]It pleasantly surprised me when Tatsuya asked his, ahem, “teacher” to find a certain group of guys. It seems he really does have an idea of whom has been sabotaging his fellow students. I’m sure we’ll learn more about that in the next few episodes. The thought of Tatsuya kicking their asses is already flying through my mind.

The next episode should be it. Tatsuya and his friends have defeated yet another school and Third High should be next. And you know, I really hope that Tatsuya does attack head-on. I know he can win because he hasn’t shown his full potential yet, but I just want to see him prove that cocky brat wrong. Nothing would make me happier at this point

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei!

I never really took any notice if this spinoff. I thought it was too focussed on comedy. It damaged the image that I have of Fate/Stay Night. There’s nothing funny about fighting against a couple of maniacs to the death in order to have your wish granted at the end.

Fate kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei!The artwork, I think, is still very different from your average Fate/Stay anime. This seems a lot more cheerful when the regular anime is quite dark and filled with action and drama. This is just, as I said before, a spinoff.

I suppose there’s some kind of story going on here, but hell if I know what it is.

I cannot recommend this to Fate fans. Those series are just too good to ruin by watching some spinoff that focussed on comedy instead of hard-core action where characters die almost every episode. Yeah… This is not for me.

Plot Summary: It has been a month since Illya and Miyu became magical girls and sealed all of the Class Cards. Rin and Luvia have been forced to remain in Japan to clean up the aftermath, such as the now-unstable magic in the area’s ley lines. While helping with the cleanup, the seal on Illya’s mysterious innate magic goes berserk and she loses control of her transformation. By the time she has realized what happened, a mysterious girl who looks eerily like Illya appears, apparently bent on bringing destruction down on the original whose heart she seems to have spawned from, and making matters worse she holds the power of the Archer Class Card, with which Illya holds a special bond, within her body.
