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.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 368

I will keep this Naruto Shippuuden post short as well. I have a lot to do and with all these new shows airing… Yeah… My head is a mess right now. Things will return to normal in a week or two once I created a summer schedule (as I do with every new season).

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 368 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.41_[2014.07.11_23.20.45]I watched this episode and afterwards I started comparing the first Hokage with Naruto. I must admit that the first Hokage wins hands down when it comes to hardships. That man lost a lot and have to sacrifice a lot to ensure the future of his beloved village. It makes Naruto’s problems seem quite small and childish.

Naruto had a relatively bad childhood due to the fact that he played host to the Nine Tails. The other reason was his attitude. He was the class clown and always sought the attention of others. He pulled stupid pranks and got on people’s bad side. That’s why he has no friends back then. Now, of course, everyone is prepare to follow him straight into hell. Time changes everything…

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei episode 14

The time for Tatsuya to shine has finally come! I feel like a little kid on Christmas Eve. Next week’s episode will truly be a grand gift. I am going to eat healthy all week long so that I won’t drop dead before seeing that episode.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 14 [720p].mkv_snapshot_00.13_[2014.07.06_23.17.35]We know that someone is trying to sabotage First High School. Tatsuya knows this better than anyone. What would a group of old geezers gain from sabotaging some school? Money? More power? Fame? Perhaps they do it just for fun? Either way, Tatsuya is on to them and is working hard around the clock so that his fellow students don’t get hurt again. He probably already has an idea of who’s behind it. It’s unlikely that students from other schools planned all of this. He knows this and probably already has a suspect or two in mind.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 14 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.21_[2014.07.06_23.18.12]I really liked that part where Tatsuya’s engineering skills where finally being praised once and for all. Two students from Third High, Masaki a.k.a. the Crimson Prince and Shinkurou a.k.a. Cardinal George, were waiting anxiously to meet him face to face. They, too, have recognized him as a dangerous opponent. Nice! And Kudos to Azusa for finding out that Tatsuya is also Taurus Silver.

Anyway, it’s finally Tatsuya’s time to shine. He and two other course two students are about to fight against those Third High students. Tatsuya has to defeat those guys without falling prey to their attacks and/or sabotage from a third party. I can’t wait to see how Tatsuya will completely wipe out his opponents.
