Mekakucity Actors

What is it with this season? A lot of stories about NEETs and the like… Not that I mind, of course… I will watch anything as long as it’s good. In fact, the more the better, right? That’s why I’m pretty satisfied with this particular show.

Mekakucity ActorsThey did not hold back on the artwork. It looks pretty good. You can tell that Aniplex has something to do with it. I’m already a fan of that female computer character. Her cocky attitude and sci-fi looks are a pretty interesting combination.

It’s another story about a NEET and special abilities. You can hardly go wrong there. I also saw that it’s supposed to be quite romantic, but I failed to see that. I would not slap the romance label on this one.

I will watch it because it caught my eye and I ended up enjoying the first episode. I suggest you do the same thing.

Plot Summary: The incidents which occurred on August 14th and 15th bring a group of young boys and girls together… They are members of a group they call themselves the “Mekakushi Dan” (Blindfold Organization) and each member possesses a strange power involving their eyes.

Date A Live 2

It’s incredible how naïve some people are. I actually read surprised responses when the second season was officially announced. You saw the first season’s ending, didn’t you? Those that did knew instantly that there was going to be a second season… How foolish.

Date A Live 2The artwork and story basically go hand in hand. The characters look great, it’s pretty detailed and the action scenes are top-notch. It’s definitely nice to see and there is very little that I would change about the artwork. It’s good as it is.

It’s a funny story about mecha girls and romance. What more could you possibly want from a story? It’s filled with action, comedy and romance… Isn’t that all you need in life?

I might as well recommend this. I watched the entire first season and I’m going to watch this one as well. I suggest you do the same, but be sure to watch the first season if you haven’t already.

Plot Summary: Shido Itsuka, who used to be a normal high school student at Raizen High, meets the first Spirit, Tohka, and awakens his power to “seal the Spirit’s power”. Though they may be feared and hated beings due to their immense power, Spirits were always alone and knew only combat and death. Shido, the only one in the world with the power to seal the Spirits’ might, hurls himself into life-threatening dates with the beautiful Spirits in order to save them.

Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin

Is it safe to assume that this one’s a jackpot? I was truly very fascinated by it and I’m already looking forward to the next episode. It could use a little bit more ecchiness (sue me if you disagree) and perhaps a few more episodes.

Ryuugajou Nanana no MaizoukinAn A-1 Picture and Aniplex combination… Hell yeah! Have you ever noticed how these companies keep animating hit shows? I mean, everything they’ve animated so far has been rated pretty darn high. This one is no exception. The artwork looks great. Very detailed and nice-looking characters. I am loving this so far!

The story doesn’t fall far behind. Hell, it might be even better than the artwork. A boy moves into a haunted room where he becomes friends with the ghost of a murdered genius whose buried treasure has yet to be found? Yeah… Well done!

I fully recommend this. It’s interesting, beautiful and overall very enjoyable. I dare call it a must-watch. You’ll laugh, you’ll cheer and some of you weaker minded will probably cry every now and then.

Plot Summary: Disowned by his father, Jugo Yama has run away from home to the island of Nanae. He begins to live by himself, only to discover his room is haunted by the ghost of Nanana Ryugajo. She was murdered ten years ago, and her killer must be found before she can rest in peace. Before her death, Nanana collected things from all over the world and hid them throughout the island. Using the mysterious powers of these hidden items, they should be able to find the culprit. As Jugo begins his hunt for her collection, however, he discovers he’s not the only person searching.

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei episode 02

No hesitation. Not a single second. I knew that I would want to write about this as soon as I finished watching the first episode. Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei is definitely one of the best shows this season so far. Definitely.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.06_[2014.04.13_23.25.44]I’m kind of puzzled by Tatsuya, still. What is up with that guy? I just can’t figure him out. I have a rough idea what he can do right now and I am slowly staring to understand why he does what he does, but what is going on with that character? There’s just no way for me to predict what he will do next. What is going on in his mind? Does he see all of those characters as enemies? As complications? I just don’t know what his next move will be or how strong he actually is. That character is just one big question mark that keeps on getting bigger. It’s probably why I’m so interested in this show.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_15.08_[2014.04.13_23.25.57]Tatsuya became a part of the student council, which doesn’t sound like a big deal at first, but he’s the first “weed” to have become it. I didn’t know if I should’ve laughed or just sit here with a surprised look on my face when he beat that guy in about a second. I truly am a sucker for overpowered main characters, even if they’re rather strange.

Like I said; I have no idea what to expect. It was a good episode and I learned quite a bit about the characters and their school. In my mind it’s about to become this competition between “weeds” and “blooms” to see which is better. I honestly wouldn’t mind that, especially if Tatsuya became the leader of the “weeds”. We’ll just have to wait and see…

Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou episode 02

I would feel very ashamed if I didn’t write about this one. It’s incredibly entertaining! The total number of episodes isn’t known yet, so I’m kind of hoping for at least twenty-four of them. I’m sure it’s good enough for a long run.

[Commie] Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou - 02 [964C1431].mkv_snapshot_05.26_[2014.04.12_23.42.14]So granny decided to leave the building, huh? Why not? Just leave a couple of teenagers alone in the house. I mean, nothing could go wrong, right? Just that they all went crazy and started playing with bubbles. Yeah, bubbles. I never knew that watching something so pointlessly childish could be so entertaining. It got even better when Ritsu joined in. I cannot help but keep my eyes on that character. She’s adorable and her stubbornness is too cute to describe. I almost feel like becoming one of those die-hard nerds that actually fall in love with 2D characters. That’s not good…

[Commie] Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou - 02 [964C1431].mkv_snapshot_18.16_[2014.04.12_23.42.32]The best part, for me at least, happened when Kazunari came walking in with those panties. I really don’t like the idea that those actually belonged to the old granny. The image of her wearing that still haunts my mind. I think I’d rather have that perverted masochist wear them, and that actually says a lot coming from me.

Now, a new character joined and I have no idea how this is going to turn out. She seems like the type of person that’s actually quite shallow and two-faced. I don’t like it. She acts too cute and certainly didn’t seem to look it when Kazunari was getting on quite well with Mayumi. I think she’s going to be quite a pain the ass.
