Trinity Seven episode 04

I knew it. The protagonist couldn’t just become an almighty mage overnight just because he can copy people’s powers. That would’ve been awesome ridiculous. Yes, this makes a little bit more sense I guess. Doesn’t it?

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.29_[2014.10.30_00.00.48]Surprising episode, I must say. Or was it? They focussed so much on Yui and her bizarre condition that there had to be something to it. I suppose it would only be a matter of time before something went wrong, but for it to happen right away is just… disappointing? What bothers me most is that it seems that almost anyone can cause one of those disasters. It first I thought it was only Arata since he was a special case, but now everyone with strong magical powers seems to be making that list, which means that the headmaster and the Trinity Seven (and other characters like them) pretty much come to mind.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.01_[2014.10.30_00.01.15]So… Arata needs to meet certain conditions before he can uses someone else’s powers, it seems. I guess they didn’t really bother telling us what those conditions could be, but my guess is that the person whose powers he plans on using needs to give his or her consent before he can actually them, which makes his ability a bit less amazing.

What happens now? Well… I imagine that Arata has quite a few more days to enjoy his harem whilst more and more characters start to fall for him. First it was Lilith, then Arin and now Levi. It’s a matter of time before the rest follows in their footsteps. That’s the problem with stories like these; the general idea is all too obvious.

Grisaia no Kajitsu episode 04

I suppose I should just come out and say it; I regret picking Grisaia no Kajitsu to write about. There is no storyline whatsoever. We are just following those strange students around, that’s it. I find it very hard to write about anime like that. I should’ve picked Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji, which turned out to be good.

[HorribleSubs] Grisaia no Kajitsu - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.28_[2014.10.28_23.40.00]It is safe to assume that each character is going to be put in the spotlight each week? Michiru got lucky this week. It was her turn. Those scenes where the characters thought that she was an alien because she occasionally bleaches her hair like an idiot were kind of strange. I laughed, that’s not the problem, but I still could not see the value of it.

The only thing worthy of attention is the serious possibility that Michiru might have a multiple personality disorder. Personality A is curious and more serious and ended up kissing Yuuji. Personality B is playful and energetic and couldn’t remember kissing Yuuji. I suppose I could call that interesting? We’ll just have to wait and see where they’re going with this.

Sword Art Online 2 episode 16

Watching Sword Art Online has really become nerve-wracking. I keep trying to figure out where they’re going with this. This is not about some quest for a special sword. I am still looking for a character that might turn out to be the new enemy.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 16 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.41_[2014.10.26_23.56.08]I doubt this quest will take much longer. The next episode should finish that if all goes well. I highly doubt that the remaining episodes of this season will revolve around Kazuto’s in-game experience. Don’t get me wrong, I like games a lot, as you could probably tell by looking at my screen name, but I don’t want to keep watching this quest business for much longer if it doesn’t lead to something important. Of course, by important I mean something that might affect Kazuto in the ‘real world’. I doubt a special sword from that game would help the guy get a job in a few years’ time.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 16 [720p].mkv_snapshot_15.46_[2014.10.26_23.56.21]I could not help but notice that one of the characters said that the quests in the game were infinite because there are infinite legends and myths. That is wrong. I don’t know if that was just poorly translated to English, but that would be very wrong. There is by no means an infinite amount of myths or legends. There are a lot of them, I agree, but they are not infinite. A couple of million players should easily be able to clear all of those in a reasonable amount of time. I don’t know… Maybe I’m just nit-picking because the story isn’t going as I had hoped.

Amagi Brilliant Park episode 04

Wooh~! I did not expect a little twist like this one. I am rather pleased with it, actually. It just goes to show that Amagi Brilliant Park is so ridiculous (a good kind, of course) that it makes it hard to predict what will happen next.

[Vivid] Amagi Brilliant Park - 04 [C442142C].mkv_snapshot_03.42_[2014.10.25_23.50.24]The almighty Seiya, whose perfect life partner is himself, was really on his game for most part of the episode. He managed the park like a real manager, make improvements, made suggestions and executed idea’s like tomorrow would never come. He was really on fire. The same thing cannot be said for Isuzu, whom felt like a useless third wheel. She realized that most of her suggestions weren’t necessary because Seiya was already on top of it. She became very agitated and aggressive because of it. It was a side of her we have never seen before and I kind of liked it!

[Vivid] Amagi Brilliant Park - 04 [C442142C].mkv_snapshot_14.15_[2014.10.25_23.50.49]Still, Isuzu proved that she wasn’t completely useless. She proved to be quite capable in emergency situations. She took control and gave out orders to the staff that resulted in a successful rebound. The rain ended up doing minimal damage and the park was once again saved from the clutches of Mother Nature.

Still, this was the fourth episode and the park is still closed. They are still working hard to improve the attractions and clean up the park. The problem is still money. They have too little of it and not everyone can get what he/she wants. I wonder if this will become a problem when the park reopens, which should be any week now.

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso episode 03

I think this episode basically just answered every single one of my questions. That is quite impressive. Normally I’d have to wait a few weeks before my questions get answered one by one. God bless Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso.

[HorribleSubs] Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.26_[2014.10.24_22.48.58]So Kaori, as I pretty much already expected, knew exactly whom Kousei was. It seems that he is too much of a celebrity to remain unknown for long. Not only does she know about him, she actually wants him to become her accompanist. That is beyond straightforward. I still remember her getting freaked out when she thought that he was making a picture of her panties, which, of course, was not the case. I can also clearly remember how she went nuts for Ryouta and asked Tsubaki to introduce them to one another. Now it’s all heading in a completely different direction.

[HorribleSubs] Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.33_[2014.10.24_22.49.46]It surprised me even more when Tsubaki and Ryouta supported Kaori in her quest to drag Kousei behind a piano again. That I definitely like! If he is indeed a truly talented pianist that is destined to make great music, why not? Let them stalk him as much as they think is necessary if it were to help him play again. Go nuts!

Now then, let’s see if I can predict what is going to happen in the future. It is my guess that Kaori and Kousei really will fall for each other. It is also my guess that Ryouta and Tsubaki may become an item. I doubt that that Tsubaki’s flame will still burn strongly when she finds out that Kousei has a thing for Kaori. Rough times are ahead…
