Dimension W episode 12

Dimension W has been a very confusing show overall. I am certain that the last few episodes will give Dimension W a much needed boost in ratings since they are slightly more interesting and they actually answer some of the many questions.

[Ohys-Raws] Dimension W - 12 END (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_12.22_[2016.03.31_23.55.44]I must admit that the ending was rather mediocre. I kind of put my money on our robotic heroine when it came to that Genesis weapon. Let’s face it; it’s a weapon more than anything else. But that is really all there is to it. I do not expect another season but since mediocre shows tend to get more and more content I can’t say for certain that this will be the last we will see of Dimension W.

What bothers me most is that we followed this story for about three months and we’re basically back to where we first started… The coils are still very much present, afro-kun still works as a collector, that poor kid will have to make do with robotic bodies and basically nobody other than those present on that island will ever notice a change since not much has changed if you look at the big picture.

ERASED episode 12

I loved ERASED. Absolutely loved it. It made me raise the bar so high that the ending ended up to be a little disappointing. I guess there are a few things that I don’t fully agree with after all I’ve seen during the past three months.

[BudLightSubs] Boku dake ga Inai Machi - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.12_[2016.03.27_23.31.03]I don’t like the idea of that lunatic sparing Satoru’s life because he couldn’t live without him anymore. What is up with that? I understand that he’s a total head case. I just cannot understand why he would spare Satoru’s life fifteen years ago, I certainly don’t understand why he didn’t take Satoru’s life during the fifteen years he’s been in coming and I absolutely do not understand why he didn’t kill him on that rooftop when he had the chance, especially after Satoru remembered everything. Could it be that I’m not crazy enough myself to understand such a mind-set?

[BudLightSubs] Boku dake ga Inai Machi - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_12.47_[2016.03.27_23.31.22]I also don’t really like the way it ended in general. Satoru still lost fifteen years of his life, even though he technically already lived all those years before he went back in time, and he could only catch that lunatic by throwing himself off that roof in order to bait out that psychopath once and for all.

Not all of it was bad though. He ended up becoming a successful mangaka after all and he even ended up meeting the one girl that believed in him when no one else would. That makes it a bit more painful since it’s up to our imagination from this point forward. In my mind they get together eventually and have 2 kids.

Dimension W episode 11

I have to admit that the ending is starting to look pretty promising. Things have picked up again. No more mixed scenes or nonsense flashbacks. We’re wrapping things up rapidly and I am loving it once again!

[Ohys-Raws] Dimension W - 11 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_10.53_[2016.03.26_00.34.41]So afro-kun has finally remembered most of it. He and only he knows where the all-powerful Genesis is and the one that used to control it (somewhat) has been turned into a giant monster. This must’ve been a huge blow for Loser. To see his beloved wife in that form when he himself has been scarred for life… Painful doesn’t begin to describe it.

What’ll happen? Well, I think it’s fairly obvious. Afro-kun will remember what he did with that Genesis thing, probably use it to dispose of that insane scientist and the monster that he’s created and then he’ll probably end up destroying it somehow so that nobody will ever use it again. I doubt that another character will end up taking it from him at this point.

ERASED episode 11

This episode was both annoying and heavy. I am truly glad that I chose ERASED to write about. Never regretted it at all. It’s been fantastic since the start. Normally it would be pretty easy to spot the culprits. Not here though. It took me quite a while.

[HorribleSubs] Boku dake ga Inai Machi - 11 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.08_[2016.03.20_23.46.56]Our poor protagonist was forced into a coma after that lunatic drove that car into a frozen lake. He was asleep for fifteen years and his mother took care of him every day during that period. That‘s seriously heavy stuff. He managed to save the lives of his friends (although others may not have been so lucky) by sacrificing fifteen years.

What annoyed me is that the guy didn’t remember a thing. I don’t blame him; it happens. What annoyed me even more is that the maniac that did that to him showed up and pretended to be a friend. I got really annoyed. Our protagonist remembers again so I hope that he finally deals the final  blow next week, even though he’s in a wheelchair, told his killer that he remembers and that he’s alone with him on a deserted rooftop. Not a very good combination…

Dimension W episode 10

This is bizarre. They (tried to) explain so much and I still have no idea what the point of it at all was. Dimension W has a good start and it was fun to watch at first, but with every episode it gets slightly less fun and slightly more complicated.

[Ohys-Raws] Dimension W - 10 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_11.45_[2016.03.17_23.30.41]It’s kind of disappointing but even the ratings on pretty much any major anime website are slowly dropping. I can remember that Dimension W was holding on firmly to an eight when it first started. Now it’s barely hanging on to a seven. And why? Because they throw in weird scenes that nobody wants to see and because they complicated things.

I mean, afro-kun returned from his trip down memory lane and we’re still nowhere near the answer. I thought we’d get to see something cool when he lost his temper, but no… Usually when they build up a story like this it means that they’re planning one hell of a finish. Normally. But I won’t get my hopes. I’m preparing for the worst whilst hoping for the best.
