God Eater episode 06

I suppose this episode was okay? I’m just wondering what the hell is going to happen now. The problem with anime that are based on games is that the stories tend to be rather disappointing, especially when nearing the end.

[HorribleSubs] GOD EATER - 06 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.36_[2015.09.01_22.59.11]I have to wait two weeks for this episode and I honestly expected more. A lot more. Most of this episode was about those two idiots surviving and getting back home by finding Alisa’s God Arc. Even that was rather pointless in the end because she couldn’t even use it when it was time for her to protect Lenka for a change. I don’t know what kind of nerve-giving pills she was taken before she ran out, but she’s less than useless now. The sight of Lenka acting as her meat shield was just sad. I’m almost disappointed that their beloved team captain showed up in time.

[HorribleSubs] GOD EATER - 06 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.15_[2015.09.01_22.59.56]This episode just wasn’t worth the wait. I’ll admit that I liked the atmosphere of them hiding in that hotel for dear life. It had this interesting post-apocalypse feel to it. But that’s not enough for me to be excited about an episode. Watching them run all over the place, mixed with a few flashback scenes from Alisa’s past, which ended up explaining why she went crazy when she saw that strange Aragami, and, of course, a few minutes’ worth of God Eater history at the end of each episode. We know how those things were created by now. We know that humanity, as can only be expected, was responsible. Just focus on what’s to come.

Gate episode 09

Boy, this episode was just one big rollercoaster ride. So many interesting and amusing scenes that I’m thinking about watching this episode again tomorrow. Gate is turning out to be quite the memorable show if you ask me.

[HorribleSubs] GATE - 09 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.43_[2015.08.29_23.26.08]We learned a lot more about Youji this week. Apparently he’s quite a skilled soldier if I am to believe the rumours. Why doubt it? I saw what the Japanese did to the Americans this week. It was hilarious to see American soldiers get slaughtered by Japanese soldiers, even though they had the advantage of outnumbering the Japanese. America, like many other countries, want access to that gate even though it’s on Japanese ground. They, apparently, don’t mind using force. The whole world seems to be scared of Japan getting a hold of all those resources.

[HorribleSubs] GATE - 09 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.56_[2015.08.29_23.26.43]It was also quite noticeable how the princess and her companion have changed since they came to Japan. They realized that Japan is way ahead and way more powerful. But instead of getting scared they actually seemed to be enjoying themselves, especially when they visited a hot spring. Japan might actual win that princess over to their side.

My attention is focussed on Rory though. Yeah, the episode ended with her forcing herself on Youji, but we all know that nothing will happen. Youji will do the ‘right’ thing and resist her charms. What I am focussing on is the idea of Rory attacking those cocky American soldiers. I can’t wait to see what happens if they actually stand face to face with Rory and the others.

Gate episode 08

There is no denying it; this episode was awesome! I laughed so much and my eyes were glued to my screen the whole time. I could definitely do with one or two more of these episodes. I’m so glad that I picked Gate to write about.

[HorribleSubs] GATE - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.17_[2015.08.22_23.48.13]I’ll just get straight to it; the group went back through the gate to visit Japan. They were all shocked by what they saw; strange constructions as far as the eye could see. They, and by they I mean the princes and her companion, immediately realized how inferior they are. They can send massive armies to battle the Japanese military, but even she now knows for sure that there’s nothing that she or her father could ever do. At least, not as they are now. They might be able to steal some of the technology and use it against Japan in the future, that’s an option.

[HorribleSubs] GATE - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.15_[2015.08.22_23.48.50]Anyway, I also laughed (and cheered a little) when Rory took the mic. She kept calling that obnoxious woman ‘little girl’ because of their difference in age. That woman did not like it and got a nice burn when she found out that Rory is hundreds of years old. The look on all their faces as that became known was priceless and well worth watching.

I’m not even going to focus on the fact that this Otaku captain of theirs isn’t only a Ranger but a Special Forces soldier as well. That’s just too much to image. I’m just shocked that it turns out that he was married at some point in his life. To an actual woman. I honestly don’t even want to know why they broke up. I’m guessing it has something to do with anime and manga.

God Eater episode 05

Wowowowow! Things took yet another turn for the worse. We learned a lot of new things and yet more questions arose. Also, I noticed that I have completely gotten used to God Eater’s artwork. In fact, I can now actually appreciate it.

[HorribleSubs] GOD EATER - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.09_[2015.08.19_00.01.56]So Lenka and his new friends have been sent out on a new mission to retrieve cores. They all got so impatient because of how slow their ‘bunker’ is progressing, so they decided to go hunt bigger game, which ended up becoming their biggest mistake yet. Things seemed fine at first, but then they encountered more humans and things just went south. More and more monsters showed up and eventually the mother of all monsters (even though he looked like an old man) showed up and kicked everyone’s ass. There was no stopping this thing. It was all over the place.

[HorribleSubs] GOD EATER - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.19_[2015.08.19_00.02.15]What’s interesting is that even that Russian chick, whom, if I may add, immediately recognized that thing, got her ass handed to him. In fact, she didn’t even do any damage. She nearly got herself killed for nothing. What’s worse is that Lenka nearly got himself killed as well trying to save that stupid girl. I can only hope that those other two manage to escape.

Now, Lenka, trying to save that idiot, fell into a river and will most likely survive. They won’t die, obviously. I’m more interested in those strange marks on his arms and face when he got angry. For a second there I thought he was going to get a sudden power boost and kill that thing, but now I’m starting to think that his weapon takes a toll on his body and that those marks are one of the side effects.

Gate episode 07

This certainly took a strange turn. But I can see many new possibilities now, one of which really speaks to me. Still, I’m pretty happy with Gate so far. It’s been nothing but a delight and I’m pretty sure it won’t let me down any time soon.

[HorribleSubs] GATE - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.51_[2015.08.15_23.53.19]I’ll admit that I’m a little disappointed at how that princess handled things. She could’ve at least gone on her knees to apologize to Youji on behalf of her knights. Instead she chose to hold her head high and send her main knight, that blonde one whose name I can’t remember right now, to sexually pleasure Youji in order to make up for that unfortunate incident. They even gave him several servants to cater to his ever desire. It would’ve been perfect if his men didn’t arrive just as he was about to have his one-in-a-lifetime-harem. Poor guy, he just can’t catch a break.

[HorribleSubs] GATE - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.12_[2015.08.15_23.53.33]This is where it gets interesting though. The princess as well as that small group of refugees are all going to Japan in order to satisfy the public and other nations. This should prove to be quite interesting. The princess will see how advanced they are and think twice before she considers attacking them. Rory on the other hand is a wild card. There’s no telling what she might do.

It goes without saying that Rory is my favourite. She’s funny, looks amazing and she’s strong. She’s basically the whole package. The fact that she’s so unpredictable makes it even better. For all we know she could’ve played nice all this time in order to infiltrate their world and plunge it in to chaos. I wouldn’t put it past her. I can’t wait to see what happens.
