Parasyte episode 20

Now this was a very eventful episode. A lot of death and destruction that you don’t often see in anime. It’s usually censored in order to protect the viewers, but not with Parasyte. That’s probably what I liked most about this show.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 20 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.03_[2015.02.26_00.12.34]So humankind decided to fight against this parasitic threat that has been terrorizing the country for months now. It was quite shocking to see how those armed forces were willing to allow a few human sacrifices if it meant killing those parasites. They usually avoid that in anime or at least censor it to prevent viewers from complaining.

The real question is how they plan on killing the one human body that houses five or six parasites. You can shoot him and he won’t die, you can stab him and he won’t die and you can probably throw a grenade or two at him and he’ll still find a way to survive. How are those soldiers supposed to kill something like that when Shinichi and Migi couldn’t do anything but run from him?

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 20 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.53_[2015.02.26_00.13.02]I also noticed that those soldiers aren’t really familiar with those parasites. They only know so much. I mean, they successfully escorted a bunch of people out and identified a parasite. They immediately shot and killed it, which was fine, but they thought that they could continue with that strategy and that all would be fine. It is troubling because they already seemed to know that those parasites can detect one another, so why didn’t they assume that they would become suspicious when one of them suddenly disappeared? They must’ve known that the other parasites would notice and that they would do anything to survive.

Aldnoah.Zero 2 episode 07

Incredible plot twist! We all knew that this was going to happen sooner or later, but it’s actually quite interesting that it happened now. Slaine is about to marry an imposter princess in order to obtain more power and authority. I wonder what’s going to happen.

[HorribleSubs] Aldnoah Zero - 19 [720p].mkv_snapshot_01.09_[2015.02.22_23.51.50]So we all know about that little princess and her unfortunate predicament. She has been locked up in that tube for god only knows how long and she finally opened her eyes again after her sister nearly killed her last week. Yes, this is good news in general, but this could turn out to be pretty bad for Slaine. After all, he rescued her from earth and brought her to that facility in order to try and save her life, which he seems to have done quite well. Now he has to make sure she stays quiet by making sure she doesn’t find out about what’s going on right now.

[HorribleSubs] Aldnoah Zero - 19 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.28_[2015.02.22_23.52.15]Will Slaine call off that wedding now that his beloved princess has awakened? Doubt it. He cares for that princess quite a lot. He would do anything to ensure her safety. Gaining more and more power by uniting all the people from Vers and gaining control of them would pretty much give him enough power to take the fight back to earth once more.

Slaine simply finds himself in a tough spot. He has to juggle two princess whilst taking control of an entire space army. To top that all off; he has Inaho to worry about. Inaho has been the only one so far that has been able to keep up with him. I am really curious to see how he will deal with all of that without losing face.

Parasyte episode 19

Awesome Parasyte episode! I bet a lot of people have been waiting for this to happen. I would doubt that these creatures could continue their killing spree without anything ever happening to them. There are always consequences.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 19 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.28_[2015.02.18_23.57.30]So Shinichi came out of it pretty well. That killer, whose ability to sense parasites is probably similar to the girl that got killed a few weeks ago, did not tell the police that Shinichi was part parasite. He either couldn’t tell because Migi was asleep or he could tell and chose not to say anything out of fear or curiosity. My money is on the latter. His response was not exactly innocent. He could definitely tell that there was something different about Shinichi. The fact that he thought that he saw something inhuman proves that. I doubt that this is the last we’ve seen of it.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 19 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.10_[2015.02.18_23.57.55]Anyway, the bit where probably a lot of fans have been waiting for is humanity’s turn to take the fight to them. Yes. They may learn very quickly and they have all sorts of weapons that cut everything apart at high speed. Does that make them invincible? Of course not. Humanity has guns, bombs and all sorts of technology that they could use to turn the tables on those parasites.

Are those soldiers doing it properly? Maybe. Things seem to be going smoothly because they are escorting and scanning only seven people at a time. It’s a slow process, but it’s only a matter of time before the rest of those parasites get nervous and refuse to play along, especially that mayor and the one with the five parasites.

Aldnoah.Zero 2 episode 06

Another highly anticipated Aldnoah Zero episode and I noticed that a lot of fans were very disappointed. I really wonder why. I thought that this outcome was rather predictable. Why act disappointed when you could’ve already known that it was going to turn out this way?

[HorribleSubs] Aldnoah Zero - 18 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.11_[2015.02.15_23.51.04]So Inaho decided to take on another high-end mech with the help of his fellow soldiers. They decided, because the enemy had a really powerful weapon, a long-ranged laser beam, to act as decoys so that their battle ship can shoot it from afar. It was quite ingenious because that guy’s beam could only go on a straight line without curbing. Big shells, because of gravity, tend to decent a little when they have to travel a long way. All that was left is to make the enemy stand on one spot and to let the ship know the right coordinates and voilà. You have yourself an easy target.

[HorribleSubs] Aldnoah Zero - 18 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.54_[2015.02.15_23.51.21]There is no point in calling Inaho a genius. He just is when it comes to combat. The real question is if he’s better than Slaine, because damn… Slaine foresaw his opponents moves in that one on one battle, killed him, took his mech and pretty much all of his assets. Slaine keeps growing in power whilst Inaho is still trying to get rid of enemy mechs back on earth. Yeah, he may have an informant amongst them, but he has yet to hear from him. In fact, we don’t even know if he made it back yet. Everything seems to be going great for Slaine and poorly for Inaho, so I am kind of curious to know how they are going to reverse these roles. We already know that Inaho is going to be the victory, surely…

Parasyte episode 18

Things are really getting interesting in Parasyte. The only bad part is that it’ll end in a few more episodes. I would’ve loved it if there were at least two dozen more episodes. I also tried the live action Parasyte; it sucks.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 18 [720p].mkv_snapshot_02.46_[2015.02.11_23.17.40]Anyway, that female parasite that has been giving Shinichi and Migi so much trouble since she transferred into Shinichi’s school has finally met her end. She told Shinichi everything that she wanted to say before she was forced to protect that baby from bullets. Those idiot cops didn’t really care about that baby when they were firing at her. They just took aim and emptied their magazines without even thinking twice about that child. It just proved that her intentions were somewhat honest, even if her methods may have been questionable.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 18 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.22_[2015.02.11_23.18.17]What surprised me more is that there was another person like the girl that got killed a few weeks ago. He, just like that girl, has the ability to sense parasites somehow. This guy is a serial killer that is now working for the government and he is sitting face to face with Shinichi. This should turn out to be quite interesting.

This could go two face at this point. Shinichi could walk out of there without any problem because Migi is asleep. Or Shinichi could be attacked or detained because that guy managed to successfully identify Migi. Either way, I don’t think Shinichi is going to let himself get captured without trying to fight or escape that facility. I really want to see the next episode.
