Sword Art Online 2 episode 13

Seriously, am I good or am I good? I knew right away that that creep was one of the people behind that whole Death Gun nonsense. I knew it ever since I saw that guy with Shino (in “real life”). The way he acted was just too creepy, especially when Shino didn’t seem to want the same thing.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 13 [720p].mkv_snapshot_06.59_[2014.09.29_23.28.11]So Kazuto defeated the in-game Death Gun, huh? It’s kind of disappointing that he needed help in order to take him down. I think a real one on one match would’ve been a lot cooler, but I am fine with this. This should’ve solved things pretty nicely, right? After all, Death Gun has been defeated in-game and Shino will live to see another day.

It should be over now, right? After all, Kazuto remembered that guy’s old Sword Art Online name, which apparently was Zaza, so giving that name to the authorities will be enough, right? They will be able to find the person behind the mask, so to speak. Kazuto can once again convert that Gun Gale Online account of his to that fairy king account so that he can play with Asuna and their ‘daughter’.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 13 [720p].mkv_snapshot_15.49_[2014.09.29_23.28.27]Anyway, did you see the look on that creep’s face when he assaulted Shino? That was really gross. I didn’t know whether he wanted to rape her or inject her with that poison, which kind of proves that Kazuto was spot-on with his theory. He kept calling her name as she pinned her down with a disturbing look on his creepy face. Do some men really become like that? I have to believe that this is just a fiction anime event and that something like that doesn’t really happen. I just have to believe that. Shino should praise herself the luckiest girl in the country for having a friend like Kazuto, whom showed up to save the day once again by fighting off that creep.

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei episode 26

And so ends yet another memorable show. In the end the scene that I wanted to see the most never happened. Too bad. The ending is kind of annoying though. It makes you think that there’s more coming, even though nothing’s been confirmed yet.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 26 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.33_[2014.09.28_23.23.20]I honestly don’t care that certain things about Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei were rather predictable. Everyone knew that Tatsuya was going to dominate every single one of his enemies. We all knew. I knew before these whole ordeal even began. No need to go online and post garbage comments on anime forums, which is something that a lot of people are doing right now. What’s the point? Tatsuya saved a few of his friends, protected his little sister and defeated everyone in his path. Absolutely nothing wrong with that outcome if you ask me.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 26 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.24_[2014.09.28_23.23.49]Now, I do hate the fact that that Chinese b*st*rd seems to have gotten away. He helped those people over and over again and in the end didn’t get punished for it. I wouldn’t have been at all surprised if he was the mastermind behind all of it, but I can’t see what he could possibly gain from it. I doubt he’s after money.

But still, I don’t really like that it ended with a kind of cliff-hanger. Tatsuya and Miyuki are to visit their aunt because that major is coming over. That’s how it ended. It just makes you think that there’s something else… And I certainly didn’t like the idea of Tatsuya being chained like a dog by someone in order to keep him under control and obedient. Oh well… An overall great experience.

Ao Haru Ride episode 12

Alright. This post will be kept short, this will be kept simple and this will be kept honest. I do not think that Ao Haru Ride turned out to be a bad watch. There were plenty of times were I truly enjoyed watching it. That being said, I still think that Zankyou no Terror, which turned out to be wonderful from start to finish, would’ve been a much better pick for me.

[HorribleSubs] Ao Haru Ride - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.39_[2014.09.25_22.19.05]Anyway, Futaba-chan did it. She finally succeeded in breaking down that invisible wall and forced Kou to act his age a bit more. He was so angry and so scared all the time, apparently. Futaba seems to have fixed all that. Does she not realize that she has a hold over him? Dammit Futaba… Just do what most women do; try to dominate and control the living crap out of him.

Kou is slowly becoming more and more sociable with everyone. Nevertheless, was there any progress at the end? Not really. All we really got during these past twelve weeks were hugs and teenage drama. In the end it didn’t really meet my expectations. I would’ve thought that Kou would’ve asked Futaba out by now, but no… A pretty mediocre ending for an overall overrated, yet amusing show.

Sword Art Online 2 episode 12

So I’ve had some time to think about Kazuto’s theory and the more I think about the more absurd it seems. This episode had no impact on that whatsoever. It was just too farfetched to begin with. Not that my theories are any better at this point.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.36_[2014.09.22_23.17.00]I will say this once again; I am pretty sure that Death Gun is that stalker guy that Shino regularly talks to. There are just too many similarities for it to be a coincidence. Besides, geeky guys are usually capable of doing desperate things when “their girl” is at stake. That’s probably why Otaku’s have such a bad reputation in Japan.

Anyway, did they really need another half episode to discuss their plans? They already know what to do; survive and take out Death Gun before he takes them out. It appears, if I understood correctly, that there can only be two winners. Coincidence? No. We know that Kazuto and Shino will make it through this just by that piece of information.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.31_[2014.09.22_23.17.31]How though? That is the question. Kazuto is matched up against Death Gun now, whom made his theory seem even less likely, because all ten remaining Laughing Coffin members, whom survived the terrors of Sword Art Online, could all be seen as accomplices if Kazuto’s theory is even remotely correct, seeing as Death Gun B, the one that supposedly sneaks into people’s homes and kills them with some kind of poison, can’t move at the speed of light and travel from one place to the other within minutes. It does not matter though. Kazuto doesn’t know Death Gun’s real name and he doesn’t have time to find out now that he’s getting his ass handed to him. We’ll just have to wait and see.

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei episode 25

I was a bit worried. I thought that this was the final episode. I saw the ending and had a crazy look on my face, when I suddenly saw “Next week…” That just isn’t funny. I forgot that this show has twenty-six episodes and not twenty-five.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 25 [720p].mkv_snapshot_00.12_[2014.09.21_21.53.35]So all hell has finally broken loose. An army of armed terrorists has taken the city by surprise and is currently shooting everything up. It is kind of sad when they attack a school meeting, it is sadder when they actually attack the students, but we kind of reach the very bottom of sadness when those very students are actually kicking their asses. Slowly their soldiers are being picked off one by one as the students, whom don’t have to rely on weapons, use their magical abilities to get rid of those non-magical terrorists. Grown men being killed by high school teenagers… How shameful.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 25 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.26_[2014.09.21_21.54.15]There is one thing that I did not like. Actually, it isn’t that I disliked it, it’s just that I’m rather disappointed by it. They put Tatsuya in a suit that he invented. Tatsuya is completely covered and you can’t tell it’s him. Also, it would seem as though his magical powers haven’t gotten stronger since Miyuki did something to him last week.

I am quite interested in the final episode. The students appear to be safe now. Tatsuya, after saving a few more lives, took off to go to the front lines in order to deal with those invaders. I just hope that I still get to see that one scene that I’ve wanted to see for months now; a scene where Tatsuya deals with his family once and for all. That probably won’t happen though, will it?
