Sidonia no Kishi 2 episode 02

I just have to write about this show. I was very sceptical about the first season, so I chose to write about something else. I just wasn’t sure about the artwork back then, but hey, I came around. I see this jewel for what it is now.

[AnonSubs] Sidonia no Kishi - Daikyuu Wakusei Seneki - 02.mkv_snapshot_04.10_[2015.04.22_23.16.29]So anyway; Sidonia has a lot of new problems now. Season one was about Nagate showing up one day and finding himself leading a new live in the presence of other people (and a cooking bear-woman). His biggest worry was fighting Gauna outside of Sidonia. And yeah, that was quite a load on his shoulders, especially since he was sent out almost every time.

But now? Things have changed. He will have to worry about his friends being taken over by some kind of parasite that goes for the mind and he has to worry about hybrid weapons that may or may not end up destroying Sidonia instead of enemy Gauna’s. Not to mention the fact that that captain, whom may have been taken over by a parasite as well, has just killed those so-called “elders”.

[AnonSubs] Sidonia no Kishi - Daikyuu Wakusei Seneki - 02.mkv_snapshot_15.39_[2015.04.22_23.17.04]Things have taken an interesting turn. Nagate’s problems were once so simple, but now it’s going out of control. We have a captain that’s dead-set on taking over, a group of parasite-controlled ‘humans’ whose motives aren’t clear yet and we have one hybrid weapon that was supposedly created to fight off those aliens. All of it is getting out of control. Rather, I think it’s too much at once. They introduced that hybrid plus they killed off all those elders in one episode. What is next? Are they going to take over one character after another with those parasites? Sounds to me like the Gauna are winning after all…

Sidonia no Kishi: Daikyuu Wakusei Seneki

It’s back! I have been waiting for this. Knights of Sidonia has really caught me by surprise. The artwork takes getting used to, but that doesn’t take long. You generally just enjoy every episode and that’s what it’s all about!

Sidonia no Kishi Daikyuu Wakusei SenekiThe artwork, as I stated earlier, is something you have to get used to. The characters look a bit 3D-ish and a lot of people, including myself, aren’t really used to that. Still, I believe the level of detail is high and that you get used to everything else after only a few minutes. No problem whatsoever.

Nor do I have any complaints about the story. I always found it very interesting. My eyes never left my screen when I was firing up an episode. I doubt that’s going to change with season two.

I honestly do recommend this. Knights of Sidonia is one of those unexpected jewels that you stumble upon. It catches you by surprise and once you are caught you don’t want to go. It’s definitely worth watching.

Plot Summary: Having narrowly avoided the collision with the asteroid, the Sidonia sets a course for the Lem system in order to wipe out the Gauna nest.

Ghost in the Shell: Arise Alternative Architecture

There aren’t many fans out there that haven’t heard the name “Ghost in the Shell”. It’s a name that carries a lot of weight and just that alone, that fan base, would be enough to give this show an enormous boost of viewers. It is no joke to say that this show has a huge advantage.

Ghost in the Shell AriseYou will never hear me knock down the artwork of any Ghost in the Shell product. I’ve seen all the movies and pretty much any and all content. It’s good, very good. I’m even waiting for the new movie that’s coming out in a few months’ time.

I’m not all that impressed by the story so far. It’s too much of the same thing if you ask me, but it’s only been one episode for me and I can definitely say that it looks very promising.

Ghost in the Shell fans will watch this from start to finish. I will watch this from start to finish. It’s intrigued me and I simply want to know a little more. I suggest you give it a real try.

Plot Summary: in 2027, Motoko Kusanagi is a highly skilled agent of the military that meets Daisuke Aramaki, former soldier who is currently the chief of Public Security Section 9. Their encounter sparks the assembly of an elite new unit within Section 9.

Aldnoah.Zero 2 episode 12

I am once again forced to keep a post short. I couldn’t sleep last night so I went down to warm up some milk when I tripped and fell down the stairs. My back is absolutely killing me and now I have to go to my doctor tomorrow. So yeah, short post incoming.

[HorribleSubs] Aldnoah Zero - 24 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.48_[2015.03.29_23.30.51]So the princess did her thing and implored her people to stop fighting and return to their own bases. She is sick and tired of all the fighting and wishes to have peace between earth and the people of Vers. Not that it matters, because earth may have Inaho, but Vers has a more advanced technology and far more powerful mechs at their disposal. In theory they should win.

But hey, Slaine almost gave up when he tried to blow up that base with him still in it. But in the end he came out to fight Inaho-kun and failed once more. Inaho, as everyone already knew, has won and Slaine has been imprisoned to protect the people from earth and Vers and to protect Slaine from himself, seeing as he’s quite suicidal now that he’s lost. All in all a pretty good ending for a great show. Thank you. I am going to cry myself to sleep now.

Aldnoah.Zero 2 episode 11

Bah. I just had the worst day. Almost everything went wrong from the moment I woke up. Even writing this post has gone wrong. Normally I’d have plenty of time to write up a post, but now I only have about twenty minutes to finish this up.

[HorribleSubs] Aldnoah Zero - 23 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.00_[2015.03.22_23.22.37]Anyway, keeping it all short; I knew it would go down this way. Slaine is your typical good guy turned bad guy character. He wants the one thing that he cannot have and it is killing him. He thought he could control the princess by keeping her imprisoned in his little base. Now he lost the one thing that mattered most and it is starting to show.

Slaine finally lost it. He ordered an all-out attack on earth at the time where the princess announced to her people that she was still alive and that she doesn’t want war. We now Slaine will just use her sister to control the damage, but he will ultimately lose this. People will eventually think there’s something wrong and figure out what Slaine’s been up to. Just a matter of time…
