Trinity Seven episode 03

So we finally got a clear picture of what we can expect from Trinity Seven. We already knew what it was about and had a rough idea of what we could expect, but now we know for sure. We finally know what drives this story.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.50_[2014.10.22_23.47.56]Despite the fact that I dislike the way they started this episode (as though nothing had happened last week, followed up by the actual story of what happened), I still find it very interesting. I also find that other girl, Yui, quite interesting. She seems to have an interesting ability. I cannot help but be a little curious, you know?

I won’t even discuss those hot springs and beach scenes for too long. What’s the point? The protagonist is a straightforward pervert that will always say what’s on his mind without thinking things through. When you combine all of that with a group of cute girls… Well, the result is pretty darn obvious if you look at it objectively.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.56_[2014.10.22_23.48.07]But no, Arata takes the spotlight again after he officially became a mage. He accessed the archives, chose a “thema”, and actually entered this so-called “magus-mode”. I am not sure if I understood this correctly, but I am pretty sure that a mage can only research one “thema” and can therefor only use one type of magic. It seems that that doesn’t apply to our protagonist. He can chose whatever “thema” he wants and utilize whatever type of magic he wants. I don’t know if there’s a limit or anything like that, but I’m guessing he’s going to be copying the magic of the Trinity Seven members, which would be why he needs to meet all seven of them.

Grisaia no Kajitsu episode 03

I was afraid this would happen. I am already starting to slowly lose interest in this show. We are three episodes in and I’m still wondering what it’s all about. What is the point of it? Is there a goal that we need to keep in mind? We’re just going in circles right now.

[HorribleSubs] Grisaia no Kajitsu - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_01.25_[2014.10.21_23.06.05]What kind of start was this anyway? The protagonist thought that he had to defend himself once more from some insane character that tries to go after his life. Instead a girl just picks the lock on his door in order to fake masturbating on his bed because she knew he was watching. Just what kind of start is this? Is this going to be a regular thing?

Even I admit that it is really funny at times. And I like to laugh, too. But at least give me something to look forward to. Even “going with the flow” becomes quite boring after a while. This is a perfect example of that. Nothing new has happened since Yuuji transferred to that strange school. Nothing new whatsoever.

[HorribleSubs] Grisaia no Kajitsu - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.00_[2014.10.21_23.06.50]I am just looking for a story here. I don’t care if girls are after him. I don’t care of some girls wish to be his girlfriend, sister or grandmother in order to get closer to him for some reason. All I want at this point is a clear picture of what I can expect from this otherwise pointless story. I thought that this anime, which was adapter from some erotic visual novel (obviously), was one of those rare exceptions, but I am starting to believe that I was wrong all along. Please, Grisaia no Kajitsu, prove that I wasn’t wrong about this show!

Sword Art Online 2 episode 15

Hmm… I am having a hard time figuring out the rest of the story at this point. The enemy, the Death Gun gang, has been defeated for as far as we know. I haven’t forgotten about that threat, but really… What can I expect at this point?

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 15 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.23_[2014.10.19_23.21.11]Quite a weird turn of events. Kazuto has his account back in the land of fairies and decided to team up with his friends in order to go out on a quest to recover the famous sword Excalibur. I had no idea that swapping accounts from game to game was that easy. In fact, I never even thought that going on quests like that was that easy. Shino is completely new to the game and doesn’t even have the right equipment from what I could tell. How is it that she is going on that quest when she’s a noob? The MMORPG’s that I’ve ever played were never that easy.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 15 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.51_[2014.10.19_23.21.40]So the group set off on a flying elephant (don’t ask) in order to find that sword, an item that no player has found yet. It makes me think about the competition that they have. Many players are out there trying to find that sword and I am sure that quite a few of them are player killers or PK’ers for short. I very doubt that they are the “new enemy”.

I am putting my money on that strange NPC. She was doing something that she normally doesn’t do. She only did it do Kazuto’s party, too, and I just don’t believe in coincidences like that. Either she or the person controlling her will be latest enemy, I’m sure.

Bonjour: Koiaji Patisserie

This is not at all bad for an anime short. It’s too bad that it’s too damn girly for me, otherwise I definitely would’ve watched it.

Bonjour Koiaji PatisserieThe artwork looks surprisingly good for an anime short. I dare say that it looks too good for anime short.

The story is obviously created for female audiences. It is by no means a great story, but if it weren’t so obnoxiously girly I definitely would’ve given this a chance.

Go for it, ladies. It may be an amusing way to spend five minutes a week.

Plot Summary: The original story follows Sayuri Haruno, a girl who attends an elite confectionery school Fleurir on a scholarship to follow her dream to open a pastry shop. There she meets several charming young men.

Amagi Brilliant Park episode 03

I know that this has been a thing since the beginning, but I cannot get over how annoying Seiya can be. He thinks of himself as some kind of god. Everything he does is great, everything he wears makes him look great and in his mind there’s no one out there as good as he is. The guy needs a reality check…

[Vivid] Amagi Brilliant Park - 03 [9F3D6650].mkv_snapshot_04.43_[2014.10.18_22.58.32]Also, those fights with Moffle are getting a little old, although I have a feeling that they will be occurring in future episodes as well. The pattern is always the same, isn’t it? Seiya implements one of his ideas, Moffle comes in angry and starts swinging his fists (or should I say paws?) at Seiya and they both end up getting shot by Isuzu. The first few times were funny, just don’t make it a regular thing.

Is Seiya doing it wrong? Don’t you dare to even think that, fool. He came up with the idea to have all the girls do a promotional video in their bikinis. That alone makes him a great manager in my book. He even came up with an ingenuous plan to make sure that people actually watched that video. What more could you possibly want?

[Vivid] Amagi Brilliant Park - 03 [9F3D6650].mkv_snapshot_21.42_[2014.10.18_22.59.09]I also could not help but notice that Isuzu is starting to get a little bit nervous around Seiya. Maybe he finally got through to her? It’s kind of obvious that she has a school girl crush on him, but the fact that she’s different than other girls makes it all the more interesting. How in the world will that even work out? That’s what I want to know.

And finally, I have to once again focus on the fact that they need half a million visitors a day before their deadline. During this episode they didn’t even have five hundred. I know that’s because the park is still closed because of renovations and whatnot, but come on… that’s just bad. They really need to speed things up a little.
