What is with this pace? I have taken notice of the fact that the pace has been getting slower and slower as weeks go by. We are fully aware of Kousei’s problems. There is no need to dedicate half of every episode to show us how bad it is.
It’s always something new. Always something that makes his childhood seem just a little bit worse, even though it doesn’t have to be. He lost his mother and apparently his cat, too. Yeah, that sucks, but there is no need to focus on that for so long. He is a talented pianist that needed a little push forward. He got that much-needed push from Kaori and his two childhood friends and is now taking baby steps back into the musical world. Just let him do his thing without bringing up every single one of his bad experiences, and don’t focus so much on it if you do.
Sorry for that annoying rant, but it had to be said if you ask me. There is no doubt in my mind that Kousei will lose this competition. Yes, he has talent, determination and passion in him, but is that enough for him to win this competition after being absent for so long. I really don’t think he will win after everything I’ve seen so far.
There is one thing that I do not understand. Why are people so angry and jealous of Kousei? Is Kaori right? Is it really because he used to play pieces exactly as they were meant to play like he was some kind of, and I quote; “marionette”? I thought that was the whole point… I certainly wouldn’t like it if people changed the music that I created in order to make it “their own”. Oh well… We’ll just have to wait and see how Kousei will deal with this.Read More
A very predictable, but enjoyable episode this turned out to be. It finally seems that there is a point to this story. It’s not about the protagonist and his quest to find and rescue his friend and to create the perfect harem for himself.
So that busty blonde invaded the school all on her own in order to get even stronger. She used her lewd body to distract the headmaster in order to beat him, after which the headmaster, quite obviously, pretended to be defeated by her when he caught a little glimpse of her breasts. The sad part is that I cannot blame him. My jaw would’ve probably detached itself from my head in order to fall on the floor (in the anime world, of course). Still, I cannot accept the fact that that man did so little in order to ensure the safety of his students. He basically gave up to let Arata do all the work.
Obviously, Arata needs to get stronger fast. He took control of Lieselotte’s magic (or at least that which made her a demon lord candidate) and is now on his way to become one of the strongest mages around. He couldn’t have done it without Sora, his grim moiré, though. Not at all surprising that she materialized into a teenage girl. Stuff like that is obvious in these stories.
Not only does Arata need to get stronger in order to find Hijiri, his friend, but he needs to master that time control magic in order to bring back Lieselotte. He always needs to get stronger in order to fight off the evil mages that are currently making their way to that school of his. Finally, a clear goal. Things should get better from here on out.Read More
Although it was pretty much the same thing, I have to admit that this episode was a bit better than the last few. Maybe because it focussed on a more interesting character? I might actually regain some of my motivation if this keeps up.
So Sachi, arguably one of the most dangerous maids in the anime world, was jealous of the other girls because they got Yuuji’s attention. This pretty much changed her personality. She became unstable and, because she wanted to please everyone around her, accepted some of the most unreasonable requests from her friends.
I was actually happy when Yuuji said that those explosives were pretty well made for an amateur. I was so glad. The thought of her being a professional explosives expert does not sound great to me. I’m just glad that it all ended with a happy ending and that Yuuji has added yet another girl to his already ridiculous harem.Read More
That’s right. I knew this would happen. I told you! Normally I’d start another flame war when something happens that I already saw coming a long time ago, but not this time. I am very happy with this episode and I don’t think I would’ve changed a thing.
Lubbock is dead. I knew it would happen sooner or later because of his attitude. The guy has a problem with women. He becomes incredibly vulnerable whenever there’s a girl involved. He suddenly becomes this gentlemen and slightly lets his guard down. I knew that he was going to be next when I saw him fight against those two freaks a few weeks ago. That is why it came as no surprise that there was yet again another woman involved right before he died. He couldn’t even see her coming when she tried to stab him in the back (literally).
Mind you, Lubbock, although he is weird and has serious issues, was one of my favourite characters. I prefer him over Tatsumi, actually. What can I say? The guy was a total badass that never stopped thinking about his next move. He even managed to take down that guy, Shura I believe, before he died. Now that was definitely a total badass that died this week.
And Tatsumi? Useless (as usual). The guy did nothing. He couldn’t do anything to help, he couldn’t do anything to get them out of there and he even ended up getting captured. I don’t care if he was up against a guy that could fight head to head against Esdeath. Getting captured (again) was just stupid. Now we’ll have to wait another week to see what Esdeath will do to him.Read More
Yosha! This is what I like to see. Enough with all the pointless quests and riddles and whatnot. It has been bugging me for the last few weeks, but now I finally see one more goal in sight. It’s about damn time, too.
Poor Asuna. She awoke, mainly due to Kazto, from her two year slumber after a great ordeal that would have a very bad impact on your average mind. I’m pretty sure that a lot of Sword Art Online survivors need(ed) a lot of help from psychiatrists in order to get over the things that they experienced when they were trapped inside that game.
Now then, Asuna was one of those people. She experienced many bad things and has shown remarkable progress. She picked up her studies, continued her daily life, made new friends and ended up with a reliable boyfriend that would do anything for her. Now it seems that her mother, whom seems very pretentious, wants her to stop seeing Kazuto and do as she says from now on.
Man, I do not envy Asuna at all. She left one hell to wake up in another. What’s that woman’s problem anyway? So what if her daughter needs to catch up for the last two years? I believe she had a very valid excuse as to why that is. Just leave her alone to find her own way and let her work towards her own goals instead of deciding what she should or shouldn’t do.
You know, I am kind of hoping that Asuna will just run away soon. Just make her run away to Kazuto’s house. I’m sure he wouldn’t mind, although the same thing couldn’t be said for his jealous little sister. Either way, Asuna deserves a fair shot at life. She shouldn’t worry about impressing her mother. Just ignore that snob and do whatever it is that makes you happy.Read More
