Sword Art Online 2 episode 08

Ah, this sucks! I was writing this post yesterday when suddenly a blackout decided to ruin my plans to write and schedule this post, forcing me to start this post all over again because I couldn’t save it. Well, I do it willingly since this particular episode was so damn good.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.01_[2014.08.26_13.39.16]The pace suddenly just picked up. I thought this was going to be another one of those slow episodes where Kazuto made his way to the finals, but no… This turned out to be a lot more than that. I’m not sure if I have this right, but I think this may actually be the finals. They put thirty something players in a big field and let them fight it out amongst themselves. One player is supposed to remain standing (if I understood correctly) and come out as the sole winner of this match. Normally I wouldn’t by fazed by this, but I am getting quite excited since Kazuto, Shino and Death Gun are all on the map. This means that only one of them will win, right?

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.52_[2014.08.26_13.39.47]Kazuto is still worried about that guy. Does he really have the power to kill someone with some in-game weapon? He doesn’t know, nor is he willing to take any risks. He told Shino to stop Death Gun from killing that guy because he thinks that his victim might die in real life, too. Kazuto is really taking this seriously. The fact that Death Gun is an old Sword Art Online player from a player killing guild must’ve sealed the deal for Kazuto. He’s completely serious and has been acting like a nervous, panicky little brat since he had that talk with Death Gun. I’m quite interested to see how he will deal with this situation next week.

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei episode 21

I honestly don’t understand this episode. So many strange events and so many vague scenes… What can I expect from this, I wonder? At this point I’m just waiting for Tatsuya to go wild again. Just let him annihilate all the enemies.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 21 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.47_[2014.08.23_23.02.49]So the girl that tried to spy (and sabotage?) Tatsuya’s work has finally been caught. She returned when he was doing god only knows what, only to be seen by one of Tatsuya’s friends whom recognized the device she was using to hack his computer. She ran away again, just like last time, but got caught in the end. You’d think that they would no longer acknowledge her as someone from the same school, but they brought her to the nurse’s office and treated her like she were the queen. They didn’t even bother tying her up or something. What a pointless turn of events…

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 21 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.34_[2014.08.23_23.02.58]I just hope I get to see something nice before the show ends. Leonhart seems to have a thing for Erika, which probably got stronger after catching a glimpse of her half naked body. Mikihiko and Mizuki like each other even though they’re both too shy to do anything about it right now. Seriously, a little bit of romance at the end would do this show a lot of good.

Anyway, it’ll probably end with Tatsuya saving the day again. Those terrorists (if I can call them that) are after the technology that Tatsuya’s currently working on. It’s only a matter of time before Tatsuya has to face them and my money’s on him. It wouldn’t be his first time to take down an evil organisation and it probably wouldn’t be his last.

Ao Haru Ride episode 07

You know, it’s actually quite funny. I actually started to think that I somewhat understood women after all these years. I kept telling myself that Ao Haru Ride is just function and that girls don’t actually think like that. My niece certainly set me straight on that one…

[HorribleSubs] Ao Haru Ride - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.57_[2014.08.21_22.52.55]I am honestly losing a little bit of interest in Ao Haru Ride. It’s all so pointless. They make everything seem so complicated and important, yet everyone knows the outcome. I for one am completely puzzled. I keep asking the same question during every episode; “why don’t you say something if you realize you like him/her?”

This episode just added to that. Futaba bought new shampoo because Kou made a comment on how her hair smells. She bought something new in order to impress him and seem more girly, only to end up doubting her decision afterwards. What is up with that? So many pointless emotions… I’m guessing the majority of Ao Haru Ride fans consist primarily of girls.

Sword Art Online 2 episode 07

This second Sword Art Online season is full of surprises. This is one of those moments where I’m truly happy that I didn’t resort to reading the manga. I just knew that another season was right around the corner.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.30_[2014.08.18_22.35.42]So Kazuto’s little sister and girlfriend already knew about his little secret. Well, some of it. They all found out that Kazuto converted his ALfheim Online account to a Gun Gale Online account. I knew his little sister would be clingy and ask question after question, but I thought for sure that Asuna would be a little more aggressive. She just accepted it… How strange.

So Shino is finally starting to realize that she has a little crush on Kazuto, huh? That’s just predictable. I knew this would happen from the moment they introduced that character. She is falling for Kazuto and that guy, Kyouji or Spiegel, is probably going to lose his mind because of it. I foresee a lot of bad things right now.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.54_[2014.08.18_22.36.19]I have so many theories right now about both Kazuto and Shino and the mysterious Death Gun. Quite frankly, I am putting my money on two characters right now. My number one pick would be that insane Sword Art Online player that took charge of that player killing fest that killed so many people. My second pick would have to be the aforementioned Kyouji (or Spiegel as he’s called in-game). It’s only natural that it’s possible to have more than one account at the same time, and he seems like a creepy stalker that has set his sights on Shino-chan. I don’t know why, but I think he might have something to do with that Death Gun character.

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei episode 20

I wanted to try and describe this episode as the quiet before the storm, but characters died and Tatsuya was spied on. I can hardly call that quiet. I guess the “war” has begun. Too bad for those guys that they don’t stand a chance against the almighty Tatsuya.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 20 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.06_[2014.08.17_23.54.26]I am short on time so I will be keeping this post short and simple. They tried to spy on Tatsuya. I, of course, say tried because Tatsuya noticed it immediately and put a stop to it. This just means that people are interested in what he’s working on. The fact that they tried to hack him proves how serious they are about it.

Even his friends are being followed and engaged one of them in combat. He may have escaped because he pulled a weak trick after he had been defeated, but it didn’t matter anyway, seeing as his own people killed him in the end. It’s only a matter of time before they try a full frontal attack when they realize that underhanded methods don’t work on Tatsuya and his friends. We’ll see…
