Chu Feng: B.E.E

So there’s no actual God Eater episode this week, which makes me really sad, but at least they didn’t waste an actual episode on fillers. I was actually surprised by this one. I thought for sure that I would end up hating this. In the end I found this rather watchable.

Chu Feng B.E.EI mean, the artwork is nothing special. It looks alright, I suppose. The characters look nothing special but at least the mechs and the tech looks alright. Fact is; I have seen a whole lot worse than this. That’s for sure.

The story is questionable. It’s a really dark story from the looks of it and I definitely like the action. People are getting shot and crushed all over the place. I just find the story questionable since the first episode didn’t have a big impact. I just know there was a hostage situation going on but I have no idea why. It’s hard to know what’s going on right now.

This is fifteen minutes of action-filled sci-fi anime. I’m not going to say that it looks promising. It doesn’t. The artwork is alright and the story is, at this time at least, pretty questionable. You’ll just have judge this one for yourselves. I for one will be giving the second episode a try.

Plot Summary: In 2017, a group of genius scientists achieve a remarkable breakthrough in bioengineering. However, all the new technologies are put into military use, beginning a new round of arms race. Vanguards, as the most significant achievement of the modern bioengineering and the most advanced weapon, are widely utilized in the race. Although vanguards are exceptionally combat-effective, their life expectancy is shortened by the nanomachines they use. Usually, most vanguards will retire from the army after a number of years in service.

The heroine Liuli has also consumed too much of her lifespan after executing missions for a long time. With only 380 days left in her life, Liuli receives a new mission, to rescue a hostage being held in a civilian facility. It is without doubt a difficult mission for a vanguard like Liuli, who only knows how to kill and battle. However, Liuli obediently decides to accept the mission in the end.

During the mission, Liuli surprisingly finds that the man who holds the hostage was once a vanguard. The former vanguard Zhongrong Zhou cries and asks the government to hand over the son of Eden. As a vanguard, Liuli feels deep contempt against Zhou. To eliminate the scum of the vanguards, a battle between two vanguards begins…

Ore Monogatari!! episode 20

This episode just caused me to ask myself one question. What now? What can I expect from Ore Monogatari now? It just seems like things have gone nowhere ever since Takeo and Rinko kissed. I have no idea what I can expect anymore.

[HorribleSubs] Ore Monogatari!! - 20 [720p].mkv_snapshot_00.39_[2015.08.21_23.49.34]We’ve gone through everything. Christmas, New Year’s Eve, and various other holidays and events. So much has happened that I’m now starting to question how this will end. Not only that; I am also starting to wonder whether I ever get to see Takeo meet Rinko’s parents. It’s just weird. We went from meeting Rinko to dating to holding hands to kissing and now things just seem to be stagnating. It’s great that Takeo has a baby sister now, but don’t focus too much on that. Focus on the romance. Focus on Takeo and Rinko.

[HorribleSubs] Ore Monogatari!! - 20 [720p].mkv_snapshot_12.30_[2015.08.21_23.49.55]At first I thought that Takeo’s new baby sister would open new doors. I thought that Rinko would come over more often and that it would lead to progress. It hasn’t. Things have pretty much stayed the same if anything. I find that very disappointing since we’re nearing the end. I really hope that next week’s episode will give us an idea on how they plan to end this show.

Was this episode good? Sure. A bit lengthy even though it was Valentine’s Day, but I suppose it was amusing. It was funny to see Takeo sweat. It’s just a damn shame that his best friend still hasn’t found anyone after all this time. His friends are all hooking up but he remains alone. I still cannot help but fele that he deserves better.

Ore Monogatari!! episode 19

It’s about time! This may not have been the episode that I have been waiting for all this time, but it was pretty darn good. I loved it. I’ll admit that there wasn’t really any progress between the show’s two biggest characters, but that’s fine for now.

[HorribleSubs] Ore Monogatari!! - 19 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.50_[2015.08.14_23.29.45]So Takeo’s mother was having a tough time. We learned about her past and how she met up with his father, how they fell in love and how they chose to live their lives. It’s all very touching to see. It is no wonder that Takeo grew up to have such a kind personality. His mother made sure that he grew up to become a model citizen. I mean, the woman’s pregnant and still she’s putting her well-being on the line to help others. What does that tell you? She’s so kind that it’s almost as though she’s got a lot of mental problems or something.

[HorribleSubs] Ore Monogatari!! - 19 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.00_[2015.08.14_23.30.26]So Takeo has a baby sister now. I’m glad. The age different between him and his new sister is quite great, but I’m sure, because he is who he is, that it’ll work out perfectly. He’s a responsible character that’ll undoubtedly help out around the house. I’m just looking forward to see how many new possibilities there now that he has a sister.

I’m pretty sure that Rinko will be showing up a lot more often. She finds that baby adorable and I’m pretty sure she’ll drop by more often to help out any way she can. Still, that does not stop me from hoping that I’ll see that one episode where Takeo meets Rinko’s parents. I just want to see that episode so badly.

Ore Monogatari!! episode 18

My god, it’s about damn time. I’m sure it’s safe to say that fans all over the world have been waiting seventeen weeks for this episode. I’ll admit that I was starting to doubt Ore Monogatari’s story, but that doubts has completely disappeared now. Thank you!

[HorribleSubs] Ore Monogatari!! - 18 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.35_[2015.08.07_23.49.32]It’s sad that I have to say this; I hate how Takeo and Rinko kissed. Rather, I kind of hate why. Their friends only started their relationship and they already kissed. They, Takeo and Rinko, were surprised by this and felt that they were moving a little too slow. It’s almost as though they were pressured into it, making it a little less special and romantic. Even I must admit that it took them a long time to finally get to this point, but to get there because others got there before you is kind of… stupid? I just hope that they continue to move forward after this instead of imitating their friends.

[HorribleSubs] Ore Monogatari!! - 18 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.41_[2015.08.07_23.50.11]And yeah, the episode I’m still waiting for is the one where Takeo meets Rinko’s parents. I’ve said it during every single post for the last few weeks I think, but I cannot help it. I just want to see that episode so badly that it’s making me sweat. I’m a sweaty, smelly nerd that’s impatiently waiting for that one episode. May god have mercy on their souls if that episode never comes.

Oh, and one last thing; when will Takeo’s best friend finally get a girlfriend? I am kind of starting to feel bad for him. He’s a good guy and very good looking. Is there really no boy or girl that he likes? He has selflessly been helping Takeo so much that I’m slowly staring to root for him instead of Takeo. He just seems a little lonely sometimes, I guess?

Ore Monogatari!! episode 17

This episode was refreshing! I like Takeo and Rinko and all, but I could’ve done with a new couple. That’s why I am pretty happy with this episode. It might also be the one thing that was needed to boost their relationship to a new level.

[HorribleSubs] Ore Monogatari!! - 17 [720p].mkv_snapshot_06.53_[2015.07.31_23.49.31]So afro-kun had a crush on one of Rinko’s girlfriends. Well, that was bound to happen. You invite a group of horny teenage boys to go out and play with a group of inexperience teenage girls and what do you get? All sorts of possibilities arise. One of them was the possibility of another couple joining the big picture. Afro-kun, being an idiot, didn’t really do it properly, but he did eventually manage to get the girl he liked. In fact, their relationship is going so fast that they’re already doing better than Takeo and Rinko, which, in my opinion at least, is a bit of a slap in the face.

[HorribleSubs] Ore Monogatari!! - 17 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.46_[2015.07.31_23.49.40]I believe that this could be the boost that those two needed. Rinko now knows that her friend has already gone further with her boyfriend than she has with Takeo. This should inspire her to do better and perhaps be a little more aggressive. Nothing wrong with stealing a kiss. We’re at the seventeenth episode; I’m done with just holding hands.

I think Rinko has a fair chance. She is bolder than people give her credit for. The problem is Takeo. He still sees Rinko has a pure girl that wouldn’t want to do those things, so he definitely won’t be the one to make the first move. I’m putting all my money on Rinko. I just hope it happens soon. I don’t want to see their first kiss during the last episode. That would be such a boring cliché.
