Assassination Classroom episode 13

Epic! This episode was completely and totally epic. There are no other words to describe it. I thought that we would get another class E bashing episode, but this completely blew away all my expectations. Well done!

[Ohys-Raws] Ansatsu Kyoushitsu - 13 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_01.07_[2015.04.18_23.42.43]The episode started out very interestingly. All the students were practicing their close quarter’s combat techniques again with Karasuma-sensei and things got out of hand when our favourite blue-haired kid scared the daylights out of him for a split second. This alone was more than enough to keep me interested throughout the episode.

That’s when some big guy showed up that claimed to be their new teacher. He was supposedly instructed to turn those kids into ruthless killers as soon as possible. I’m not even going to mention his pointless and merciless methods. Let’s just say that his appearance brought to light a talented young assassin.

He hit students, came up with a ridiculous training schedule and even forced them to recognize him as their “father”. I’m not even going to explore whatever daddy issues that guy has. I’m just happy that Nagisa-kun got picked as a representative for his class and successfully managed to defeat that guy. That’s right, he got defeated by a student whose talents finally became clear to all of the teachers (and perhaps students). This was truly a great episode with a lot of awesome developments!

Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo

Wow… This might actually be pretty good. When I read that it was going to be another one of those shows where the characters trade bodies I became sort of disappointed. God only knows how many of those there are already. But no… This was actually quite amusing and interesting.

Yamada-kun to 7-nin no MajoThe artwork is pretty good. The characters look nice, the level of detail is good… Sure, there are things that I don’t really appreciate, like some of those character expressions, but hey… That’ll happen.

The story is what interests me. The main heroine isn’t your typical girly girl. Soon more will show up and it makes me curious about their personalities. I basically just want to see what’s going to happen.

Recommendable? Yeah. I think so. Why not? It’s funny, a little ecchi (yay) and contains traces of romance and huge doses of supernatural abilities. So yeah, why not?

Plot Summary: One day, high school boy Yamada bumps into the beautiful female honor student Shiraishi on the stairs (literally), and their lips touch as they fall. When they regain their wits, they realize that they have swapped bodies. As time progresses, the two realize that this is not the only mysterious happening in the school.

Nisekoi:

I wasn’t happy when the first season aired. I mean, yes, I think the manga deserves an anime adaption, but when it finally arrived… Let’s just say that I felt somewhat betrayed.

Nisekoi 2Now, some of you might wonder why I felt betrayed. Well, I can only blame the artwork for that. The characters look so damn strange and the artwork is not at all smooth or visually appealing to me. It, for me at least, is very difficult to watch and enjoy.

Nothing wrong with the story though. It’s a good story. A lot of fans say that it’s a pointless story where nothing really happens and where things just go in a loop. I cannot deny that, but I still think it’s quite enjoyable.

I for one will probably not watch this, just like the first season. I will stick with the manga. But hey, see for yourself if this anime adaption of Nisekoi is worth watching.

Plot Summary: As a child, Raku Ichijo made a secret promise with his childhood sweetheart, keeping a pendant as a memento while his love took the key. He dreams of one day meeting his past love, but years later, reality smashes his hopes when Chitoge Kirisaki accidentally knees him in the face. Though Raku’s a normal high schooler, his family heads the notorious yakuza gang the Shuei-Gumi faction. And he’s dragged into family affairs when he’s forced into a relationship with Chitoge, the daughter of a rival gang’s boss.

Hibike! Euphonium

I’ve heard about this one and I must say that it doesn’t live up to the hype. It may be worth watching, but I am not that interested so far. It was a very weak first episode.

Hibike! EuphoniumThe artwork is alright. Most of the characters may look a little dull, but at least the level of detail is pretty good. Oh, and I like their uniforms. I was getting fed up with those blue and white ones.

Like I said; it was a very weak first episode. It doesn’t have any impact. I’m not curious and I don’t care about the second episode. It doesn’t make me want to keep watching. That’s not a good sign.

I cannot recommend this. Music fans will probably watch this. However, I don’t think this is one of those stories with a music prodigy and stuff.

Plot Summary: Hibike! Euphonium begins when Kumiko Oumae, a girl who was in the brass band club in junior high school, visits her high school’s brass band club as a first year. Kumiko’s classmates Hazuki and Sapphire decide to join the club, but Kumiko sees her old classmate Reina there and hesitates. She remembers an incident she had with Reina at a brass band club contest in junior high school.

Mikagura Gakuen Kumikyoku

I don’t even know where to start with this one. I feel as though I was punched in the face, yet I kept watching anyway. I kept watching and I kept enjoying it on some level. When did I become so weird?

Mikagura Gakuen KumikyokuThe artwork isn’t really bad. In fact, it looks quite nice. A lot of the characters may look a bit dull, but that weird cat sure makes up for that.

I don’t like the heroine, Eruna. Her personality annoys the living crap out of me. But hey, it’s not about her, it’s about a special school with special students doing special things. Quite a handful for the human mind.

Comedy fans might enjoy it. I haven’t made up my mind yet, but I am going to give the second episode a chance, at least. It looked fairly interesting, I suppose…

Plot Summary: High school student Eruna Ichinomiya enters the Mikagura Academy dreaming of a boarding school life filled with beauty. However, Eruna finds out that in the culture clubs, there is a rule that battles that are fought with special powers decide a club representative’s treatment. Through various circumstances, Eruna becomes a representative of a club, and is thrown into the fray.
