Amagi Brilliant Park episode 04

Wooh~! I did not expect a little twist like this one. I am rather pleased with it, actually. It just goes to show that Amagi Brilliant Park is so ridiculous (a good kind, of course) that it makes it hard to predict what will happen next.

[Vivid] Amagi Brilliant Park - 04 [C442142C].mkv_snapshot_03.42_[2014.10.25_23.50.24]The almighty Seiya, whose perfect life partner is himself, was really on his game for most part of the episode. He managed the park like a real manager, make improvements, made suggestions and executed idea’s like tomorrow would never come. He was really on fire. The same thing cannot be said for Isuzu, whom felt like a useless third wheel. She realized that most of her suggestions weren’t necessary because Seiya was already on top of it. She became very agitated and aggressive because of it. It was a side of her we have never seen before and I kind of liked it!

[Vivid] Amagi Brilliant Park - 04 [C442142C].mkv_snapshot_14.15_[2014.10.25_23.50.49]Still, Isuzu proved that she wasn’t completely useless. She proved to be quite capable in emergency situations. She took control and gave out orders to the staff that resulted in a successful rebound. The rain ended up doing minimal damage and the park was once again saved from the clutches of Mother Nature.

Still, this was the fourth episode and the park is still closed. They are still working hard to improve the attractions and clean up the park. The problem is still money. They have too little of it and not everyone can get what he/she wants. I wonder if this will become a problem when the park reopens, which should be any week now.

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso episode 03

I think this episode basically just answered every single one of my questions. That is quite impressive. Normally I’d have to wait a few weeks before my questions get answered one by one. God bless Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso.

[HorribleSubs] Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.26_[2014.10.24_22.48.58]So Kaori, as I pretty much already expected, knew exactly whom Kousei was. It seems that he is too much of a celebrity to remain unknown for long. Not only does she know about him, she actually wants him to become her accompanist. That is beyond straightforward. I still remember her getting freaked out when she thought that he was making a picture of her panties, which, of course, was not the case. I can also clearly remember how she went nuts for Ryouta and asked Tsubaki to introduce them to one another. Now it’s all heading in a completely different direction.

[HorribleSubs] Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.33_[2014.10.24_22.49.46]It surprised me even more when Tsubaki and Ryouta supported Kaori in her quest to drag Kousei behind a piano again. That I definitely like! If he is indeed a truly talented pianist that is destined to make great music, why not? Let them stalk him as much as they think is necessary if it were to help him play again. Go nuts!

Now then, let’s see if I can predict what is going to happen in the future. It is my guess that Kaori and Kousei really will fall for each other. It is also my guess that Ryouta and Tsubaki may become an item. I doubt that that Tsubaki’s flame will still burn strongly when she finds out that Kousei has a thing for Kaori. Rough times are ahead…

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.
