Tokyo Ghoul √A episode 03

I am extremely happy that Tokyo Ghoul started up again. I went one season without Tokyo Ghoul and I have been missing it. I hope that next season I get a second Attack on Titan season and after that another Tokyo Ghoul season. That would give me a perfect 2015.

[Ohys-Raws] Tokyo Ghoul A - 03 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_01.02_[2015.01.22_23.25.36]Anyway, I am starting to believe that Ken might not at all be interested in that strange organization. He, to me, looks like someone that’s after something. I don’t know if he’s looking for someone or if he’s trying to obtain certain information, but he is definitely looking for something. He doesn’t attack like his fellow members do. He attacks the police and other humans in a way that doesn’t fatally harm them. He could’ve easily killed all those cops, instead he chose to prevent them from reaching their destination by flipping cars and whatnot. Sadly, the same cannot be sad for his friends.

[Ohys-Raws] Tokyo Ghoul A - 03 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_20.45_[2015.01.22_23.26.20]I wonder what the point of it all was. Sure, they were there to rescue a fellow ghoul, one of Jason’s henchmen, but is that all there is to it? Ken had to defend himself against two one-eyed ghouls during this mission. I’m guessing that someone’s after Ken and sends in strong ghouls to test how strong Ken currently is.

I am guessing that Ken really is going to start his own group, as I had hoped from the start. His old ‘friends’ took out a few of those goons and are making his way to him. I don’t know if he is aware of that or if he is going to fight them, but I am pretty sure he is going home with them at one point. Ken is not meant to be part of an organization like the one he’s in now.

Tokyo Ghoul √A episode 02

The story took a really weird turn here. What a way to start the second season. I am going to be stuck on this stuff all week until I watch an episode that makes sense again. Why am I so excited about this season? Is it because Ken is finally a badass? Is that it? Hmm…

[Zero-Raws] Tokyo Ghoul Root A - 02 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_10.44_[2015.01.16_23.38.10]So Ken really did join that Ghoul organization. I thought he was just saying that to distance himself from Touka to keep her out of harm’s way. But no, he really joined the organization that captured and tortured him and that nearly killed most (if not all) of his friends. Yet he still decided to join that organization. I cannot understand it. Is he after something? Is he trying to infiltrate the organization in order to get closer to its leader? Is that it? Ken does not strike me as the type of person that forgets and forgives easily when the safety of his friends are stake.

[Zero-Raws] Tokyo Ghoul Root A - 02 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_20.24_[2015.01.16_23.38.29]He may be a badass now, but he is still the same old Ken. He could’ve killed that man if he wanted to, yet he decided to spare his life by walking away. That scene just confused me even more. He does not want to kill aimlessly. It just makes it harder for me to find out why he’s doing this. We all know that he has a goal in mind…

I’m just glad that Touka’s safe. Ken, before joining that organization, stopped Touka’s brother from killing her. Now she’s back in school and trying to move on. Doesn’t that seem strange? That Ken is now the strong one whilst Touka’s doing her best to try and seem human? I just cannot get enough of this story… Things just keeps reversing.

Durarara!!x2 Shou

Okay, Durarara is a hit. It is so successful that it got a second season (this one), a third season, which will start immediately after this one finishes in July, and a fourth season one year from now. I guess they struck oil with this one.

Durarara!!x2 ShouWho can blame them? The artwork looks great. The characters look good, the sceneries are great and the level of detail is pretty impressive. Even a newbie could tell that big-time studios are working on this project and that this is by no means a low budget production.

That’s right, the artwork is great, but it’s the story that makes you keep watching. It’s quite interesting and filled with action. Who doesn’t like that? I don’t know why, but some scenes from season one actually reminded me of the Monogatarie series.

I do fully recommend this. It is a very interesting watch and it is great to look at. And the good news is that there will be a lot more Durarara episodes coming, so eat watch your hearts out!

Plot Summary: A half a year after the events of the first season, Ikebukuro has begun to return to normal. High school is in session, Izaya is back to scheming, and Celty, the legendary headless rider, is still chased by the police as she rides through the town. But a few unusual things have slipped into the mix. Gradually, thanks to outside elements, Ikebukuro will be thrown back into chaos.

Tokyo Ghoul √A

You can already tell that this is going to be an awesome season. Tokyo Ghoul is back, Aldnoah Zero (if I am not mistaken) is also back, we have Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso and Parasyte, and a few more new shows that look extremely promising. This is going to be a great season.

Tokyo Ghoul √ASo Tokyo Ghoul has started again, which was only a matter of time. I always had a tough time deciding whether I liked the artwork more or the story itself. It is so hard to make up my mind because the artwork look so incredibly good.

Then again, the story is where the magic lies, isn’t it? It is not very predictable and you know that every episode is going to raise your blood pressure a little. That’s just proof that the story behind Tokyo Ghoul is the real thing.

Yes, yes, yes, yes and hell yes! I cannot say it enough; go watch this show. Watch the first season if you haven’t already and start watching this season as well. It is worth wasting twenty minutes a week on, trust me.

Plot Summary: The suspense horror/dark fantasy story is set in Tokyo, which is haunted by mysterious “ghouls” who are devouring humans. People are gripped by the fear of these ghouls whose identities are masked in mystery. An ordinary college student named Kaneki encounters Rize, a girl who is an avid reader like him, at the café he frequents. Little does he realize that his fate will change overnight.

Mushishi Zoku Shou 2

Hell yeah! I am so glad that there’s yet another season. I find the Mushishi series strangely relaxing. I fire up an episode and watch how Ginko travels that world of his in search of strange phenomena. Very relaxing indeed.

Mushishi Zoku Shou 2The artwork is still as great as ever. It looks so good and it’s incredibly detailed. The style itself is brilliant and I am pretty sure that anyone in his/her right mind wouldn’t change a thing about it. It’s too damn good to change.

I don’t think I need to say anything about the story either. There are very few people out there that don’t know about the Mushishi series. It has become quit famous over the past few years.

I do recommend this. Watch the previous series if you haven’t already. I promise you that its time well spent.

Plot Summary: Mushi; the life-blood of nature. They exist everywhere in various forms: micro-organisms, fungi, bodies of water. Sometimes, they’re even mistaken to be plants, animals, or spirits. But regardless of their appearance, they exist, nonetheless, living the only way they know how. At times, their actions can cause strange or unexplainable phenomena. Enter Ginko, the Mushishi (mushi master), as he continues encountering, studying, and dealing with the mysterious mushi along his journey into the unknown.
