DanMachi episode 04

Another nice episode. So what is there was very little action? I believe this will lead up to an interesting new chapter that will undoubtedly entertain me throughout the show. I especially like how high-paced this all seems.

[HorribleSubs] DanMachi - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.53_[2015.04.26_23.41.24]So Bell-kun decided to tell his advisor about his insane increase in stats. He showed her and she couldn’t believe how much he had progressed in so little time. I also noticed that she did not notice that he has obtained a rare skill, which is probably why her attitude towards him stayed more or less the same. In fact, she, probably in his best interest, took him out shopping for armour. The guy has been going to those dungeons without proper equipment all this time. At one point it might not go as smoothly and he’ll end up taking a hit or two. Armour would definitely come in handy during that time.

[HorribleSubs] DanMachi - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_11.55_[2015.04.26_23.41.29]Also, Bell-kun found out about his goddess’ new job. Yes, he has a shiny new knife that will help him reach the top, but there was a price to be paid by Hestia. God only knows how long she has to work there for her to pay back all that money. But hey, Hestia is friends with that other goddess so it’s not like those terms are unreasonable.

And finally; I can see it coming from a mile away. Bell-kun is being baited by that little midget that’s only after that special knife of his. If I remember correctly; that knife can only be used by someone with certain ambition or something like that. She is going to try it again and that goddess of beauty is going to try and mess with Bell-kun again. Things are going to get rough for him again…

Ore Monogatari!! episode 03

Wait what!? Did this just really happen? I am so glad that I picked this show to write about! Normally it’d take an entire season for something like this to happen. To think that we’d already reach this point during the third episode… Awesome!

[HorribleSubs] Ore Monogatari!! - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.02_[2015.04.24_00.08.50]The episode started out like you’d expect; the huge ogre was having yet another one on one moment with the show’s pretty heroine and he was, as you could expect, talking about the little ogre as though he was some amazing guy that every girl should be lucky to have. I am not going to deny that Makoto is a lot more appealing than Takeo if you look at things as they are. But hey, when you start to dig a little deeper you realize that Takeo’s just as big a jackpot as Makoto. That girl is simply one of the few people to have discovered that.

[HorribleSubs] Ore Monogatari!! - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_12.41_[2015.04.24_00.09.03]So yeah, Takeo was ranting on and on about how great Makoto is. Poor Rinko got the impression that she was about to be rejected so she started crying. She then went to Makoto for advice, but ended up getting tricked into confessing her feelings to Takeo instead. Pure brilliance. That just goes to show that Makoto really does care.

But hey, the big change was when they confessed to one another. They have become a couple in the blink of an eye, which is great news for me. I hate following stories about characters getting together at the end of the show. This is great because it leaves a lot of room for other stuff; first date, first hug, first kiss… You know, the usual.

DanMachi episode 03

This season is quite a mess. I have to reschedule a lot of posts for many days later because most of the good shows air on the same day. The other shows, shows that aren’t really worth writing about, air on other days.

[HorribleSubs] DanMachi - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.37_[2015.04.17_23.54.35]So Bell managed to ensure the safety of his beloved goddess. You could tell that he was fully prepared to give his live so that she could live on. She took him in when no other family would. They all saw him as dead weight, a parasite that would eat their food, use their beds and other resources. Hestia took him in and turned him into a promising adventurer. That is why I am not at all surprised if he rushed towards death so that that girl could continue living. That just goes to show what kind of respectable character this protagonist is.

[HorribleSubs] DanMachi - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.56_[2015.04.17_23.54.43]I replayed the scene where Hestia updated his stats twice. This time it didn’t show how much he had progressed. I decided to cheat a little bit finding the matching chapter of the manga and found out that his stats had almost doubled. They freakin’ doubled! No wonder he managed to defeat that monster. Doesn’t matter if he has a super-knife; he couldn’t have defeated that monster with just that knife if his stats hadn’t doubled. That knife may be special and forged by another goddess, but that doesn’t mean it’s wielder will instantly become invincible.

Ore Monogatari!! episode 02

Ore Monogatari, I choose you! Use your thunderbolt! God… I’ve been making cheesy Pokemon jokes all day long. Pokemon, a gift yet quite the curse. I wonder if the same thing could be said for Ore Monogatari?

[HorribleSubs] Ore Monogatari!! - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.38_[2015.04.16_23.00.16]First thing’s first; Takeo, one of the main male characters. The guy is huge, strong and scary-looking. He looks a bit like gorilla and will never become a doctor. I know that makes him sound like a complete loser, someone that no woman would ever want to end up with. Nothing could be further from the truth. Its guys like that whom usually end up with great girls. The guy has a heart of twenty-four karat gold, things of others and is always ready to help someone, even if he himself ends up getting hurt in the process. Now that’s a guy that girls want.

[HorribleSubs] Ore Monogatari!! - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.11_[2015.04.16_23.00.31]The second thing that I would like to point out is that Rinko-chan, the girl that Takeo saved on the train, probably really likes him. Takeo is used to girls befriending him so that they can get closer to Makoto, his good-looking best friend. I really believe that that’s not the case this time. I think that Rinko-chan may have fallen for Takeo.

The problem lies with Takeo. He is not used to girls falling for him. In fact, occurrences like that might actually be somewhat rare. That’s why he doesn’t know how to deal with those situations because he believes that she could never be interested in him. If only he had more self-esteem. Things would’ve been better for him.

Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo

Wow… This might actually be pretty good. When I read that it was going to be another one of those shows where the characters trade bodies I became sort of disappointed. God only knows how many of those there are already. But no… This was actually quite amusing and interesting.

Yamada-kun to 7-nin no MajoThe artwork is pretty good. The characters look nice, the level of detail is good… Sure, there are things that I don’t really appreciate, like some of those character expressions, but hey… That’ll happen.

The story is what interests me. The main heroine isn’t your typical girly girl. Soon more will show up and it makes me curious about their personalities. I basically just want to see what’s going to happen.

Recommendable? Yeah. I think so. Why not? It’s funny, a little ecchi (yay) and contains traces of romance and huge doses of supernatural abilities. So yeah, why not?

Plot Summary: One day, high school boy Yamada bumps into the beautiful female honor student Shiraishi on the stairs (literally), and their lips touch as they fall. When they regain their wits, they realize that they have swapped bodies. As time progresses, the two realize that this is not the only mysterious happening in the school.
