Ao Haru Ride episode 08

This whole story is just going back in forth. It’s almost like watching a random child that’s plucking leaf petals from a flower. “She loves me, she loves me not, she loves me, she loves me not…” It’s quite annoying if it goes on for too long.

[HorribleSubs] Ao Haru Ride - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.03_[2014.08.28_22.50.36]So Futaba finally managed to find the courage to tell Yuuri about her feelings for Kou. I think it’s quite admirable how Yuuri dealt with the news. Sure, she was bit surprised and rather sad, but she took it very well. Besides, she doesn’t strike me as the type of character that will do anything to get what she wants. I think she’s as straight as an arrow. That is why I’d rather see her win that Futaba, but that’s obviously not going to happen. Futaba is just way too fussy and has quite a few problems, and I don’t think that their past should give her the edge, even though it obviously does.

[HorribleSubs] Ao Haru Ride - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.37_[2014.08.28_22.50.58]Quite frankly, the only one that I’m actually rooting for is Shuuko-chan. So what if she has a crush on her teacher? They aren’t extremely far apart when it comes to age, so why not? Just wait until Shuuko-chan graduates and date her. Date her now if you think you can keep it quiet… I only say that because I think that Kou’s older brother is a good guy, of course.

Was there any actual progress? I don’t know. Futaba told Yuuri about her feelings for Kou and says that she’s seriously going after him now. I never thought she would literally follow the guy around town like he has honey stuck to his ass. I just hope that Kou will notice her feelings soon. It’s time that he, too, grows up a little instead of acting like a sad, attention craving child.

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.

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…

Ao Haru Ride episode 06

I am not old. Seriously, I am a young man. Why do I feel so old when I watch this show? The characters’ problems seem so childish and pointless that I basically want to slap the first teenager I come across for no good reason.

[HorribleSubs] Ao Haru Ride - 06 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.52_[2014.08.14_23.28.50]It seems that my hunch was right. Yuuri fell in love with Kou after he helped her up when she fell. She claims that she always had her eyes on him, but that he pretty much stole her heart when he helped her. I’m sorry, but isn’t that quite a bit sad? Do teenage girls really fall in love over something so trivial? I just hope this love triangle crap goes over quickly, because we already know how this is going to end. Futaba is going to win. Plain and simple. Kou likes Futaba and Futaba likes Kou. Yuuri’s feelings for Kou are one-sided and will stay that way.

[HorribleSubs] Ao Haru Ride - 06 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.38_[2014.08.14_23.29.15]It’s about time that Futaba realized that she likes Kou. Hell, she always knew it. She gets nervous when she’s around him, she can feel her heart going nuts and she always seems to sniff his hair like a horny b*tch (dog) in heat. I don’t think I would like a hair-sniffing, two-faced girlfriend like that. I hate to say it like this, but Kou can do better. Let’s face it; the guy is smart, has looks and has a pretty good personality. If he were a real human being than he would go very far in life. It’s too bad that he’s about to realize that he has feelings for Futaba just like she has feelings for him. It’s so obvious…
