I am forced to keep this post short and simple due to a severe lack of free time today. Mind you, this episode definitely deserves a review of at least three hundred words. Just calling it epic wouldn’t be enough. I have a good feeling about the ending…
So the convention got attacked by terrorists with guns. How boring. It took Tatsuyu a couple of seconds to turn things around. It just goes to show that that guy is a natural born leader. He shouldn’t be following that major. They should be following him. The fact that he led that group to safety just proves my point.
And did you see the look on everyone’s faces when they found out that Tatsuya was a secret agent and that they were forced to keep his identity a secret? Finally some well-deserved recognition. It was foolish of them to even think that Tatsuya was like them. God… This episode was so wonderful that I might actually watch it again tomorrow. I’m completely hooked right now.
Anyway, I don’t know if all the students are safe. They are bound to encounter more terrorists. All Tatsuya can do now, especially now that his true identity has been revealed, is fulfil his mission. That last scene where Miyuki did something to Tatsuya was the cherry on top of the cake. Many theories are already going through my head (the more likely one is that Tatsuya can finally use his “full power” now that Miyuki undid some magic of some kind). I can’t wait to see next week’s episode, even though we all already know that Tatsuya is going to defeat every single one of those terrorists himself is he has to. That’s just the kind of overpowered main character that he is.
P.S. I am fully aware that I failed to keep this post short and simple. What can I say? This episode made me want to write.Read More
Wow. Why did I think of Natsuyuki Rendezvous? I remember loving that show to death. Waiting every single week for a new episode was very hard. And that horrible ending disappointed me so much that I lost faith in Japanese endings. Ao Haru Ride won’t be any different. I can tell.
I was not very hopeful. I knew what to expect. Futaba is a pretty jealous girl, so when she saw Yuuri and Kou exit that room together and refused to tell her what they did there, I immediately knew that Futaba would not leave it alone until she found out why. She has used sad, obvious excuses before to get what she wanted. This this was no exception. She used like half a dozen bad excuses to gain access to Kou’s house in order to squeeze out a little bit of info on what happened between those two, only to discover that part of that room has been dedicated to Kou’s deceased mother. Yeah, good going, Futaba.
I even hate myself for actually getting a little hopeful when Kou held Futaba like that. “Here it finally comes” I said to myself, when suddenly Kou’s older brother showed up to ruin everything. Seriously, he ruined everything. The moment was perfect, the position was perfect and the timing was perfect. I hate myself for that.
I swear, I will never get my hopes up like that again. Ao Haru Ride just keeps shooting it all down. No wonder the manga is so popular amongst girls. They build up so freakin’ much that it makes me want to hit someone. I imagine that girls love this kind of let’s-wait-so-it-becomes-a-lot-more-special crap. The only thing that can make it special is if you obey your partner’s every command (and vice versa from time to time to be fair).Read More
Just two more episodes left. This means that the final battle is at hand. I kind of knew that it would be going this way. Last week’s episode was just too damn strange as the pace suddenly broke the sound barrier. This makes sense again… I think.
I could not believe that a group of high school students could take down an experienced, powerful magician like Lu. That guy rampages through anything, so for him to be taken down that easily was just complete nonsense. Things starting making sense again when they already planned his rescue, even though I actually started to think that him getting captured like that was part of their plan. This just means that Lu, the boss’ right hand man, is an important powerhouse in their organization and that they need him to obtain the artefact that Tatsuya currently has hidden.
I’m also not a very big fan of recruiting former enemies. I say former because the enemy in question, Chiaki, no longer seems to be a threat. They just want her at this point because she’s the school’s second best engineer (Tatsuya, of course, being the best) and they think they can profit from her being on their side.
Now, I did not fully understand that exhibit at the end of the episode, nor am I very interested in it. I just want to see how Tatsuya will handle this situation without letting people find out about his true identity. His sister must’ve been present to watch their presentation, so I’m guessing that Tatsuya will go on a rampage again after they endangered his sister’s wellbeing.Read More
There are three episodes left and I have no idea what they’re trying to accomplish with this. It just looks like it’s going to be another one of those romantic anime where the main characters don’t actually end up together…
I really have very little to say about this episode. Kou basically stole the spotlight with his bad boy act. That guy is seeking attention like some drama queen. Just grow up kid and tell people what’s on your mind. Why go out at night to spend time with a group of losers that will probably at one point starting raping girls?
The only “interesting” scene was when Kou and Yuuri came out of some room together and neither one of them wanted to tell Futaba what was going on in there. I’m not saying anything happened, but I’m pretty sure that we’ll find out next week. I doubt that Futaba will just give up. It just goes to show that you can never leave a possible love candidate alone with the person you like.Read More
Just a couple of episodes left before Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei has finished airing. Can you already see the ending? I can. I see Tetsuya standing strong as one of Japan’s strongest magicians. Overpowered main characters are awesome!
I was both surprised and at the same time not at all surprised when I saw Tatsuya go about his routine. I know that sounds very strange and pretty much impossible, but at one point I thought that he would go on the offensive. He’s not the type of person that sits idly by as his friends and family are being targeted by some mysterious organisation. At the same time I thought that he wouldn’t be fazed by any of this because he knows that he is stronger and that his friends can defend themselves very well. He was just more focussed on catching more enemies spies, in which he succeeded quite nicely I might add.
I was surprised the most by that big guy. He always seemed so strong and careful, so to see him go out in the open like that was kind of strange. Not only did he simply reveal himself, he just attacked head-on as though he thought that he couldn’t get hurt by a bunch of kids. He won’t be trying that again anytime soon after his second attempt failed. Or will he? It all seemed to go a bit too easy if you ask me…
Let’s just quickly summarize this episode right now. Tatsuya caught yet another rat, his friends caught that big shot, Miyuki nearly stole a kiss when her brother was sleeping and the enemy, although supposedly wounded after the events of late, seems to be planning an all or nothing attempt to find and steal that artefact. That’s right; good times are ahead.Read More
