Psycho-Pass 2 episode 02

A new season, a new enemy, a new goal and new characters. How lovely. I didn’t write about the first season because it seemed like a longshot, but I am glad that I got the opportunity to write about the second season instead.

[Ohys-Raws] Psycho-Pass 2 - 02 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_04.49_[2014.10.17_23.01.15]Anyway, Akane managed to successfully capture that criminal before her colleagues killed him due to him having a level high enough for lethal use of those awesome weapons. Akane confronted him and made him see reason, after which is level went down so that they could take him out without having to kill him. This led to his capture and interrogation where he appeared to be completely insane. He may not have been seeing things, seeing as that accomplice of his really does exist, but that doesn’t change the fact that he was mentally insane and still became a murderer in the end.

[Ohys-Raws] Psycho-Pass 2 - 02 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_16.44_[2014.10.17_23.01.37]I find it beautifully ironic how Akane’s methods are being questions right now by that rookie. I can remember Akane in her rookie days. She, too, sometimes questioned the decisions of her superiors and often did things her way. That’s why I find it hard to dislike that rookie. She may be a little naïve right now, but she shows a lot or promise.

The one thing that I still find hard to believe is that Akane chose to remain quiet about the Sibyl System and continued with her work as a police officer. I would’ve thought that that would’ve been enough for her to lose faith in the system. That is why I love this show; things sometimes don’t make sense at first. It makes things less predictable.

Parasyte episode 02

Awww yeah! Parasyte just keeps getting better and better. I am not at all a big fan of dubstep, but Parasyte makes it work! Certain scenes are just so much better with dubstep in the background. Very well done, Japan. To think that this type of music, which was created in 1990 or 1991 I believe, has become incredibly popular over the past year.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.20_[2014.10.16_23.15.42]So the protagonist, Shinichi, is trying to get used to his new parasitic friend. It is noticeable how little he tries to use that hand. He obviously doesn’t trust that parasite, whom has been given the name Migi. Can I blame him for that? No. The first thing he did was grope the heroine’s breasts (good job, Migi) and during this episode he knocked a bully, whom was bullying Shinichi because he was jealous of his relationship with Satomi-chan, a few metres away. I am pretty sure the guy lost consciousness for a couple of seconds before he ran away screaming.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_15.02_[2014.10.16_23.15.55]Shinichi is having a very hard time with all of this newfound information. He know knows that people are being slain by those mysterious parasites, but he also realizes that some people just aren’t worth saving. He assumes that Migi will just help him defeat all of those hostile parasites, which is a terrible miscalculation on his part.

Migi is brilliant. I love that character. That create is obviously far more intelligent than your average human being and does everything in a way that ensures his survival. He puts himself before anything else and has no problems making that very clear to Shinichi. That being said, how long will Migi stay passive when Shinichi is constantly putting them in danger by seeking out hostile parasites? This will seriously be very interesting.

Psycho-Pass 2

I am pretty sure that most people could see this one coming. Psycho-Pass turned out to be a great success. When I read about all that I immediately realized that a second season was soon forthcoming. After all, if you find yourself in possession of a cow that squirts out pure gold, you’d naturally milk that puppy dry.

Psycho-Pass 2Artwork; awesome. Summarizing the artwork with that one word is more than enough. It just looks too damn good.

I was surprised to see how Akane-chan has grown. I remember the fragile, easily influenced Akane from season one. Now she’s a badass, seasoned cop that doesn’t take no for an answer. Well done, Akane-chan!

I do recommend this. The story can be quite hectic at times, but that is one of the things that make it great. Watch the first season if you haven’t already and enjoy!

Plot Summary: Having learned the true nature of the Sybilla System, Akane Tsunemori chose to obey the system, believing in both humanity and the legal order. She’s part of a new police section and spends her everyday life facing down criminals. Unbeknownst to Akane, however, a monster who will shake the system to its core is about to appear before her.

Parasyte

I see this as this season’s Tokyo Ghoul. Is that wrong of me? I don’t think so. Sure, this didn’t get my heart going like Tokyo Ghoul did, but god did I love the first episode. I’d have to be a complete fool if I didn’t write about this.

Parasyte -the maxim-The artwork is great, which is not all that surprising since Madhouse is working on it. The characters look cool, the sceneries look nice and I am loving those parasitic creatures. It makes you wonder about what kind of person would come up with that sort of thing.

Story-wise this is gold. Pure gold. I can safely say that there is nothing like it out there, which is quite rare nowadays. Almost everything has been done at least once in one way or another. This is just interestingly unique.

If there is any part of you that likes action, horror or sci-fi creatures, not necessarily in one show, than this is definitely for you. It is very interesting and the story is ever so promising. I have only seen the first episode and I already want more.

Plot Summary: Shinichi Izumi is a normal high school boy whose right hand has become infected with an alien parasite that names itself “Migi” (“right”). Migi is the first parasite to develop a symbiotic relationship with its host, as he and Shinichi slowly develop a grudging friendship. Migi isn’t the only Parasite on earth, however, and as cases of Parasites killing humans begin to emerge, humans seek to kill off Parasites. Shinichi and Migi find themselves caught in between these two sides of the struggle over planet earth.

Ai Tenchi Muyo!

Not interested. I am not interested whatsoever in this anime short. It isn’t like Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken, which is a rare breed of anime short. I can’t see myself wasting my time on this.

Ai Tenchi Muyo!The artwork is surprisingly good for an anime short. But only for an anime short. Compare this to regular shows and you soon know which one you want to watch and which one you don’t.

It’s an anime short; how much of a story can there be?

No. I won’t be wasting any time on this show, so why should you? You may decide to prove to all that you have bad taste by watching this anyway, but those with some taste undoubtedly won’t.

Plot Summary: In this story, the world is in chaos, thanks to Washu. Now in order to save it, Tenchi Masaki must go undercover as a student teacher at an all-girls school. Unfortunately for him, trouble always comes his way as he has a hard time to deal with the hijinks of his new students.
