Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei episode 03

Ohhh~ Hell yeah! I need more of this. A lot more. Thank god there’s going to be twenty-six Mahouka episodes. That means that I have at least twenty-three more weeks of joy and I deserve every minute of it after what I’ve been through.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_02.30_[2014.04.20_21.14.07]So they started things off by explaining how Tatsuya defeated his opponents within one or two seconds. Fair enough, I didn’t understand all of it, but I understood enough to know that Tatsuya is a total badass that deserves to rule that school. It’s the first time that I’m actually hoping that one of the character’s a cunning strategist that will manipulate, use and discard everyone around him in order to achieve his goals. I mean, the students that look down on “weeds” because of how they did on their tests deserve to be taught a lesson. Tatsuya fits that role perfectly.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.05_[2014.04.20_21.14.48]Tatsuya won the match and is now officially part of the student council or the discipline committee. Maybe both. Either way, the guy is doing one hell of a job. He managed to piss off one of the course one students before he even began. This Shun character will undoubtedly by the cause of a lot of problems, but I’m pretty sure that it’s nothing that Tatsuya can’t handle.

I’m really looking forward to the next episode. I want to know how Tatsuya is going to solve this. He faced a group of angry course one students after he defeated their club leader. How awesome would it be if he, on his first day to boot, defeated over a dozen course one students? His reputation would skyrocket and tip the balance just a little bit in favour of all course two students.

Black Bullet episode 02

I thought about writing about Soul Eater Not! It’s fun, interesting and it already has a huge fan base. Still, Black Bullet does so much more for me. The story alone was enough to make up my mind in the end. Black Bullet it is!

[HorribleSubs] Black Bullet - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_06.17_[2014.04.16_23.42.37]Okay, so Rentarou and Kisara went to a very important meeting where they and a lot of other fighting monsters and their initiators were told to wait for further instructions. That’s when we learned that they were supposed to find and retrieve a very dangerous weapon that could end up destroying the walls that protects them from the Gastrea, monsters that seek to destroy humanity. Is that all there is to it though? The bad guy in this case, Kagetane, and his initiator, Kohina, showed up and raised so much hell in that room… He actually killed a few people by deflecting their own attacks… Overpowered characters for the win!

[HorribleSubs] Black Bullet - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.39_[2014.04.16_23.42.59]That being said; their “government” was keeping quiet about the whole thing. They knew what they were supposed to retrieve because Kagetane revealed it and turned it into a game. That woman had no intention whatsoever to tell anyone about what was inside that box, which makes her just as big a threat as Kagetane.

There’s no doubt that it’s all about Rentarou and his supposedly special “initiator, Enju-chan, whom ended up running away at the end. There is obviously something important about those two characters, which is why they’re the main characters, that will allow both of them to power up and defeat all that is evil. Sounds about right? We’ll see…

Mekakucity Actors

What is it with this season? A lot of stories about NEETs and the like… Not that I mind, of course… I will watch anything as long as it’s good. In fact, the more the better, right? That’s why I’m pretty satisfied with this particular show.

Mekakucity ActorsThey did not hold back on the artwork. It looks pretty good. You can tell that Aniplex has something to do with it. I’m already a fan of that female computer character. Her cocky attitude and sci-fi looks are a pretty interesting combination.

It’s another story about a NEET and special abilities. You can hardly go wrong there. I also saw that it’s supposed to be quite romantic, but I failed to see that. I would not slap the romance label on this one.

I will watch it because it caught my eye and I ended up enjoying the first episode. I suggest you do the same thing.

Plot Summary: The incidents which occurred on August 14th and 15th bring a group of young boys and girls together… They are members of a group they call themselves the “Mekakushi Dan” (Blindfold Organization) and each member possesses a strange power involving their eyes.

Date A Live 2

It’s incredible how naïve some people are. I actually read surprised responses when the second season was officially announced. You saw the first season’s ending, didn’t you? Those that did knew instantly that there was going to be a second season… How foolish.

Date A Live 2The artwork and story basically go hand in hand. The characters look great, it’s pretty detailed and the action scenes are top-notch. It’s definitely nice to see and there is very little that I would change about the artwork. It’s good as it is.

It’s a funny story about mecha girls and romance. What more could you possibly want from a story? It’s filled with action, comedy and romance… Isn’t that all you need in life?

I might as well recommend this. I watched the entire first season and I’m going to watch this one as well. I suggest you do the same, but be sure to watch the first season if you haven’t already.

Plot Summary: Shido Itsuka, who used to be a normal high school student at Raizen High, meets the first Spirit, Tohka, and awakens his power to “seal the Spirit’s power”. Though they may be feared and hated beings due to their immense power, Spirits were always alone and knew only combat and death. Shido, the only one in the world with the power to seal the Spirits’ might, hurls himself into life-threatening dates with the beautiful Spirits in order to save them.

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei episode 02

No hesitation. Not a single second. I knew that I would want to write about this as soon as I finished watching the first episode. Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei is definitely one of the best shows this season so far. Definitely.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.06_[2014.04.13_23.25.44]I’m kind of puzzled by Tatsuya, still. What is up with that guy? I just can’t figure him out. I have a rough idea what he can do right now and I am slowly staring to understand why he does what he does, but what is going on with that character? There’s just no way for me to predict what he will do next. What is going on in his mind? Does he see all of those characters as enemies? As complications? I just don’t know what his next move will be or how strong he actually is. That character is just one big question mark that keeps on getting bigger. It’s probably why I’m so interested in this show.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_15.08_[2014.04.13_23.25.57]Tatsuya became a part of the student council, which doesn’t sound like a big deal at first, but he’s the first “weed” to have become it. I didn’t know if I should’ve laughed or just sit here with a surprised look on my face when he beat that guy in about a second. I truly am a sucker for overpowered main characters, even if they’re rather strange.

Like I said; I have no idea what to expect. It was a good episode and I learned quite a bit about the characters and their school. In my mind it’s about to become this competition between “weeds” and “blooms” to see which is better. I honestly wouldn’t mind that, especially if Tatsuya became the leader of the “weeds”. We’ll just have to wait and see…
