Ore Monogatari!! episode 07

I forgot to watch Knights of Sidonia because I didn’t haul it in. I keep forgetting that HorribleSubs doesn’t cover that show so I have to search for it myself. But that’s fine; this week’s Ore Monogatari was pretty darn good.

[HorribleSubs] Ore Monogatari!! - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.45_[2015.05.20_23.38.07]So the hurdle continues. Takeo has a girlfriend now and Rinko now has a boyfriend. Very nice. It still puzzles me that Rinko was the one that wanted to be a little bit more physical instead of Takeo. Usually it’s the guy that wants to touch his girl more and more. Quite the interesting twist. I must say that the change hasn’t become quite clear to me yet. They still didn’t seem very close during this episode, and that’s not because Takeo had other things to worry about this time. I’m starting to wonder what the point of all of that was, really.

[HorribleSubs] Ore Monogatari!! - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.07_[2015.05.20_23.38.34]So Takeo was begged by a couple of Judo goons to help them out in their upcoming tournament. They really wanted to win this to boost morale and whatnot. Now, Takeo is a really good guy, so it’s not surprising that he instantly agreed to help, but he was willing to take a small break from dating his little girlfriend so that he could train for a month.

You know, all that’s really nice and all. I saw plenty of great scenes where I could enjoy Rinko’s adorable smile. That’s really nice. But hey, I am still waiting for Rinko to introduce her boyfriend to her parents. Aren’t you curious to see their reaction? I really want to see that happen. Her parents will probably be against it since most people judge books by their covers, so I am curious how Takeo’s going to fix that.

DanMachi episode 07

You know, someone mailed me yesterday and said; “GameDemon, you know, the anime has actually already caught up with the manga for as far as it has been translated.” Reading that actually put a frown on my face. I almost gave in and read the manga. I am really glad I didn’t now.

[HorribleSubs] DanMachi - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.46_[2015.05.17_23.38.30]Quite a lot has happened during this episode. And you know, I really think that Seraph of the End can learn from DanMachi. The pace of DanMachi is wonderful. It’s all moving along so nicely; rarely a dull moment. I mean, that little cat-girl ended up joining Bell’s little family against the wishes of his goddess, Hestia. Mind you, Hestia’s not a mean goddess. She just doesn’t like it if other girls get too close to her beloved Bell-kun. But hey, nothing new there, right? Hestia has always been devoted to him and can be quite the possessive girl when she wants to be.

[HorribleSubs] DanMachi - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.01_[2015.05.17_23.38.45]But yeah, I could see that one coming already. What I couldn’t see coming is that he, Bell-kun, would be reunited with the girl that he has been running away from all this time. Yes, the beautiful sword princess, Ais. It seems that she came to return something that belongs to Bell by contacting his guild advisor.

Yeah, did not see that one coming. She trapped him nicely so that he couldn’t run away again before she got to talk to him. Nor could I see it coming that she would end up training him a little when it comes to fighting properly. Who knows? They might actually get together at one point if they continue to spend more quality time together.

Ore Monogatari!! episode 06

Well, it seems that I was overreacting during my last episode. I expected something far worse to happen. Did I miscalculate the fact that these characters are all weird and childish? Maybe I was thinking too serious about things.

[HorribleSubs] Ore Monogatari!! - 06 [720p].mkv_snapshot_06.20_[2015.05.14_23.54.47]So Makoto’s sister decided to meddle after she met up with Takeo. It’s something that everyone could’ve seen coming. Women are like that, you know. But hey, she managed to drag out the necessary information; which was that Rinko was so incredibly worried that Takeo sees her as this pure creature that wouldn’t do anything indecent or physical, even though the girl wanted things to get physical. She wanted to hold hands, hug and kiss and do things that teenagers do at that age. You know, the usual. She was worried about something as insignificant as that…

[HorribleSubs] Ore Monogatari!! - 06 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.27_[2015.05.14_23.55.05]Fine, I can see why that might be a bit of a problem. The guy is almost twice her size, he’s built like a brick chicken house and he has no experience with girls whatsoever. I can somehow understand why she would be reluctant to confront him about this issue. But hey, she did and he understood. Things are once again on the up and up.

As for Ai; she lost. I don’t see this relationship dying anytime soon. Besides, I am fairly certain that Takeo only sees Ai as a sister figure and nothing more. The thought of her being girlfriend material probably never even entered his head even once. Do I feel bad about that? Not really. She had plenty of time to tell him about her feelings. Now it’s simply too late.

DanMachi episode 06

Okay, this episode was very predictable. We all saw it coming and we all knew what was going to happen. That is why I am going to keep this post short as well because there is little that I want to say. Most of it I’ve said already in my previous post.

[HorribleSubs] DanMachi - 06 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.50_[2015.05.10_23.56.51]So Bell-kun got tricked by that midget after all. Gee, who could’ve possibly seen that coming? I’m guessing everyone. I’ve been saying it for some time now. That girl would trick him to get a hold of that knife and eventually, for being who he is, he’d still help her in her time of need. Tricksters always get tricked by others. That’s how it works.

What happens next? Obvious much? That girl is going to become part of Bell’s group and continue to support him now that he’s saved her life after all that she’s done to him. Her heart has been conquered and she’s been freed from that strange family of frauds and scams. That is the only route that I see right now.

Ore Monogatari!! episode 05

What the hell… It took ages for Takeo to find himself a girlfriend, but now it would seem that his girlfriend doesn’t only have a secret that she’s not telling him, but now another girl appears that seems to like Takeo.

[HorribleSubs] Ore Monogatari!! - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_01.23_[2015.05.07_23.57.53]It started out like you’d expect; a group of people see him coming and get so scared that they get out of his way. He meets his girlfriend on the train and arrives late at school because he had to help her once again, after which the video spreads amongst his classmates and he becomes an even bigger hero, although the girls of his class didn’t seem to believe that she’s really his girlfriend because she’s too cute for him. Meh. Expectable. The problem with all of this is that she’s keeping something from him that might just have a big impact on their relationship later.

[HorribleSubs] Ore Monogatari!! - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_11.28_[2015.05.07_23.58.12]So this girl shows up that turns out to be Makoto’s sister. It is no surprise that she, too, is quite nice on the eyes. In fact, I am not even going to pretend to react surprised if it turns out that she works part-time as a model or something. The one thing that did end up shocking me is that she, too, likes Takeo, even though that shouldn’t be that big a surprise seeing as he’s a great guy.

Now, Takeo realizes that there’s something wrong with his girlfriend. He is doing his best to help her, as usual, but he cannot help her if she doesn’t tell him what’s wrong. That’s why he needs to push her a little for answers. She’s too shy and insecure right now.
