Aldnoah.Zero 2 episode 12

I am once again forced to keep a post short. I couldn’t sleep last night so I went down to warm up some milk when I tripped and fell down the stairs. My back is absolutely killing me and now I have to go to my doctor tomorrow. So yeah, short post incoming.

[HorribleSubs] Aldnoah Zero - 24 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.48_[2015.03.29_23.30.51]So the princess did her thing and implored her people to stop fighting and return to their own bases. She is sick and tired of all the fighting and wishes to have peace between earth and the people of Vers. Not that it matters, because earth may have Inaho, but Vers has a more advanced technology and far more powerful mechs at their disposal. In theory they should win.

But hey, Slaine almost gave up when he tried to blow up that base with him still in it. But in the end he came out to fight Inaho-kun and failed once more. Inaho, as everyone already knew, has won and Slaine has been imprisoned to protect the people from earth and Vers and to protect Slaine from himself, seeing as he’s quite suicidal now that he’s lost. All in all a pretty good ending for a great show. Thank you. I am going to cry myself to sleep now.

Parasyte episode 24

And so our happy ending finally arrives. Parasyte truly was a stroke of brilliance. This author isn’t all that known when compared to some of the others out there. He really did it big when he created Parasyte. This anime adaption is one to be remembered for sure.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 24 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.29_[2015.03.25_23.39.44]So things went back to normal or as normal as things get in a world where parasitic killing machines live amongst you. They adapted to the human way of life. They started eating the same food, doing work to earn money and they seemed to have learned to control themselves, which goes to show that a display of necessary force was all that was really needed to get them to back down. Well, that and the fact that Shinichi and Migi killed the strongest of them last week. I guess this means that humans are once again on top of the food chain in the world of Parasyte.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 24 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.51_[2015.03.25_23.40.14]Now then, I knew that insane killer would show up again at some point. I had no idea it was going to go down that way, but I am not entirely sure I disliked it. The only thing that I disliked is that I have no idea if he survived or not. I mean, a superhuman punch to the face from an emotional boyfriend trying to save his girlfriend sounds pretty damaging to me…

Nevertheless, humanity has won and Shinichi survived all of his trials and has started a new chapter in his life. He is going to finish school, work on his relationship and hope that one day he might be able to speak to Migi again. I’ll admit that I don’t see the value of Migi going to sleep for a long time, but it do think it’s a nice touch. Well done, Mr. Iwaaki (the author).

Aldnoah.Zero 2 episode 11

Bah. I just had the worst day. Almost everything went wrong from the moment I woke up. Even writing this post has gone wrong. Normally I’d have plenty of time to write up a post, but now I only have about twenty minutes to finish this up.

[HorribleSubs] Aldnoah Zero - 23 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.00_[2015.03.22_23.22.37]Anyway, keeping it all short; I knew it would go down this way. Slaine is your typical good guy turned bad guy character. He wants the one thing that he cannot have and it is killing him. He thought he could control the princess by keeping her imprisoned in his little base. Now he lost the one thing that mattered most and it is starting to show.

Slaine finally lost it. He ordered an all-out attack on earth at the time where the princess announced to her people that she was still alive and that she doesn’t want war. We now Slaine will just use her sister to control the damage, but he will ultimately lose this. People will eventually think there’s something wrong and figure out what Slaine’s been up to. Just a matter of time…

Parasyte episode 23

Good episode. We all knew that Migi was still alive and that he would return to Shinichi, so I am not going to moan about it being predictable or anything. It was only to be expected, otherwise the story would’ve been pointless.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 23 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.30_[2015.03.18_23.12.59]So Shinichi went back there to face that supposedly invincible monster on his own. One superhuman versus a monster that consist out of several parasites and one parasitic overlord. I thought it was kind of weird that he returned with that rusty chopper, but in the end he managed to do incredible damage with a rusty piece of metal that was supposedly poisonous due to all sorts of chemicals and whatnot. That poison destroyed Gotou’s body, causing all the other parasites to fear for their survival, and allowing Migi to return to Shinichi’s side.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 23 [720p].mkv_snapshot_15.51_[2015.03.18_23.13.11]It was quite an interesting turn of events, I’ll give ‘em that, but I believe it could’ve been executed a bit better to be very honest. I mean, Migi exited his body after taking down some vital organs. Why when the poison was all that was necessary for the other parasites to run amok? Was that the cherry on top of the cake or was it just to make sure?

Either way; Shinichi chopped down Gotou before he got the chance to regenerate. Smart move. You don’t want a monster like that running around. You’d be looking over your shoulder for the rest of your life if you’d let him live. But still, part of me believes that there’s more bad stuff coming. After all; that murderer was quite interested in Shinichi and he did manage to escape, remember? I am pretty sure I am right about this.

Aldnoah.Zero 2 episode 10

What a really strange episode. So much happened during this week’s Aldnoah Zero episode and yet I have so little to say. Finding the right words is difficult and actually thinking of something worthwhile is even harder.

[HorribleSubs] Aldnoah Zero - 22 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.57_[2015.03.15_23.43.56]Inaho and the rest of his comrades were apparently tired of constantly defending their planet, so they decided to launch an attack of their own with a hidden objective; to rescue the awakened princess and to bring her back to earth so that she may help them stop the war from going on much longer, which is quite the difficult task with Slaine trying to obtain more and more power.

I imagine that Slaine would lose a lot of power and a lot of leverage when that princess is rescued. A lot of people would stop following him if it would come out, provided they’d believe it. Slaine could just say that she’s a hologram or something and use his puppet to continue playing Asseylum for him. Still, the damage is done; he lost what he loves most. We’ll just have to see how he copes with it.
