DanMachi episode 13

Yeah, I suppose I do find this ending rather good. It may have been a little rushes and not all questions were answered, but I suppose it’s because I wanted to see a lot more of DanMachi. It saddens me that it’s already over.

[HorribleSubs] DanMachi - 13 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.29_[2015.06.28_23.40.00]DanMachi truly was this season’s underdog. Many people thought that it was another dirty anime when they saw that busty loli Hestia and thought that it was going to be more fan service than anything else. Things soon changed after only a couple of episodes. People came around and saw DanMachi for was it truly was; a great show.

I’m not sure if there’s ever going to be a sequel. I haven’t heard anything yet. Not even an item about the possibility of a sequel. That’s why I’m kind of satisfied with this ending as it had everything you could wish for; a badass boss, a huge fight and a happy ending. That finishes things pretty nicely if you compare it to the endings of other shows.

[HorribleSubs] DanMachi - 13 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.00_[2015.06.28_23.40.24]I knew that Bell-kun’s latest skill would be the key to him defeating that boss. His attack being amplified like that allowed him to slay that boss before it could destroy them all. That’s all very cool and impressive that Bell-kun managed to rise to the occasion, but I still think that it could’ve been avoided if Hestia hadn’t used her divine powers after Bell-kun had already won the day (so to speak). It seems kind of pointless if you think about it. Bell and his friends were safe and so was she, so there was no point in having her interfere. I wonder if that happened in the manga as well or if it was just their way of ending the show. Either way; I am pleased. I’m glad I watched this show and that I wrote about it.

Ore Monogatari!! episode 12

Thank you! Thank you so much! I have been waiting for an episode like this for weeks now! Ah~ this episode was pure bliss. The best part was that I didn’t even see it coming. It came as a pleasant surprise, which is great.

[HorribleSubs] Ore Monogatari!! - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.49_[2015.06.25_23.35.24]I mean, this episode started out with Takeo’s constant domination in sports. His physique allows him to do incredible things, especially when you compare him to other guys his age. He just dominates at almost everything he does. He even got scouted when he went ice-skating. But hey, Takeo’s straight, so there’s no way in hell that he’d ever become a professional ice-skater. Can you honestly see that gorilla on the ice doing pirouettes with some chick? Come on… That guy belongs in a ring or a field. Basically; somewhere where he can destroy other people.

[HorribleSubs] Ore Monogatari!! - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_11.52_[2015.06.25_23.35.38]But I digress. The guy needs to start studying if he wants to go to the same college as his girlfriend. She wants to go to the same school as him and vice versa. They currently go to different schools, both they are both working hard to change that. This was basically one big set-up for what came next, for which I am still truly grateful.

So yeah, that whole study thing was one big setup to get Rinko to visit Takeo’s home. She came to study and the way Takeo’s parents reacted was priceless. They wouldn’t leave her alone. His mother cleaned the entire house and bought all new stuff and his father just kept asking question after question. It was hilarious. I can’t wait to see how Rinko’s parents will react. Probably not as positive.

DanMachi episode 12

Another great episode. It’s truly a darn shame that I have to keep this post short because it definitely deserves better. Unfortunately, I think I’ve come down with the flu. I’m cold and can’t stop shaking. I just want to write and plan this post and dive straight into bed.

[HorribleSubs] DanMachi - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.12_[2015.06.21_23.25.13]So Bell-kun ended up being tested once again. His insane progress has caught the eyes of many people, including the divine, so it came as no surprise when that god, Hermes, decided to test his skills. I’m pretty sure Bell passed when he defeated that guy after he realized how to do it. But hey, that’s not what’s important here.

Hestia made it known who she was and it caught the attention of others. She’s not allowed to be in the dungeon and she knows that. She will have to face the consequences. It’s a damn shame, too, because Bell-kun didn’t even need any help. He had already won when she popped up. I guess the final episode is going to be quite eventful.

Ore Monogatari!! episode 11

Okay, we had the drama episode, the famous karaoke episode, the mystery episode and this week we got the swimsuit episode. All that’s left is the equally clichéd hot springs episode, right? I just have to accept that my long-awaited episode probably won’t come.

[HorribleSubs] Ore Monogatari!! - 11 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.32_[2015.06.18_22.53.23]The one episode where Takeo and Rinko introduce themselves to each other’s parents. I believe that they have reached that point in their “relationship” that they can let their parents know about it. I just have to know how Rinko’s parents will react as her boyfriend stands before them. I’ve thought about that ever since the second episode aired and I’ve been anxiously hoping for it to air, but now that we’ve pretty much reached this point I’m going to have to start accepting the fact that such an episode might not air at all. At least not during this season.

[HorribleSubs] Ore Monogatari!! - 11 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.01_[2015.06.18_22.53.59]Anyway, like I said; they all went to the beach. Takeo brought his closest friends, including his best friend, and Rinko brought some of hers so that they could all have a good time together on the beach. I thought that this would open a whole new door and push their relationship to a whole new level, but I guess I kind of overrated the situation.

I feel like I must also accept that, at least during this season, their relationship will remain “pure” and “innocent”. I doubt there’s even going to be a kiss. They like each other so much, yet they both become quite awkward when it comes to physical contact. They just don’t know what the other wants, which can be problematic. But this is nice too… Innocent romance…

DanMachi episode 11

This did not go nearly as I had thought. I dare say that it was way too easy. I made me wonder even more about how they’re going to end things. I mean, Bell-kun hasn’t really achieved anything yet, right? He just got stronger, that’s all.

[HorribleSubs] DanMachi - 11 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.46_[2015.06.14_23.50.42]It surprised me to see how this episode went. Bell and his friends nearly died last week when they were forced to run from hordes of monsters on the middle floors. They got trapped and forced to go further down into the dungeons in order to reach dungeon eighteen’s safe zone. You don’t expect things to go so smoothly after all that.

To be honest; I thought that Bell would have had to fight against that boss. I mean, he spawned, he was big and I was under the impression that he wouldn’t be able to pass due to him having to carry both of his friends. I thought that he would somehow manage to defeat that boss with that new super skill of his and that he would instantly level up to level three at his next update. That would’ve been awesome. A bit predictable perhaps, but awesome.

[HorribleSubs] DanMachi - 11 [720p].mkv_snapshot_15.12_[2015.06.14_23.51.05]But hey, it didn’t come to that. He evaded those monsters, got passed that boss and made it to the safe zone of the eighteenth floor where he met up with Aiz and her party. It came as no surprise that she would eventually pop up at some point. She, subconsciously, is interesting in Bell and would do anything in her power to help him in his time of need. So yeah, she had her friends treat their wounds and allowed them to stay until Hestia and the rest could catch up to them, which didn’t take them all that long. They kind of came for nothing if you think about it. But hey, Hestia could update Bell’s status and make him stronger again (provided that it doesn’t give her away).
