Yeah, I’m definitely going to stop writing about Space Brothers after the 100th episode. This has been going back and forth for the past few months and I can already tell what’s going to happen in the future. I usually enjoy writing these posts, but when it’s time to write about Space Brothers I get all annoyed.
I knew this was going to be a horrendous episode when I saw that Mutta’s parents were in it. There is never a normal episode when those two characters are involved. It always jumps from drama or action to pointless comedy without any progress. Same with Mutta; what’s the point of continuing this road when most of the viewers can already see the ending?
Anyway, Hibito will probably not be going to the moon if we were to believe that NASA top-dog. We all know that that’s probably not true. Mutta and the others will find out about it and help him prove himself once more. I’m confident that Hibito will return to space in the future (provided Space Brothers doesn’t get cancelled before that happens).Read More
I thought that the Naruto Shippuuden fillers were over since we had two episodes this week, but no, they’re still going strong. I’m guessing that I’ll be posting Gin no Saji episodes on Saturday for a few more weeks. Probably until the second Gin no Saji season ends.
So a new episode arrives and we immediately dive in a world of pain and misery. They covered it up by starting out with this cheese-making business at the beginning of the episode, which I found very informative. In fact, I quite liked that because I always wanted to try making my own cheese. It sounded easy enough until I saw that scene. Seems like a whole lot of work…
Anyway, during this episode we learned why Ichirou, the school’s biggest baseball freak, wasn’t attending school during the past few episodes. It seems that he dropped out because he can no longer afford to spend his time learning new things when he could earning money by working. You see, his family just went bankrupt and they need money to pay off their debts.
This all sounds very problematic and dreadful. It is. It truly is. However, things got so much worse when they revealed that the Mikage family co-signed the Komaba family’s loan, which means that the Mikage family’s business is now on the line as well. Things will only get worse if the Komaba family cannot pay off their debts in time.
This one episode, as dreadful as it truly was, explained so many things. After seeing the episode I actually stopped and thought about it for a few minutes. It’s almost a given that the Mikage will go under as well if the Komaba family can’t come up with the money, and that is why Aki’s usually so on-edge. This is a perfect opportunity for Yugo to shine. He is great with this sort of thing. It may not be any of his business, but it’s the perfect opportunity for him to impress Aki.Read More
There is something terribly wrong with this episode. I’m overall quite happy by what I saw this week, but the ending kind of worries me. There are a few episodes left and I would really like to see when and if Kobeni and Hakuya end up together. I would like that a lot.
I remember watching Kobeni’s curiosity taking over as she spied on Hakuya, Mashiro and Konoha, a girl that turned out to be of the same species as Hakuya and Mashiro. She overheard as Honoka asked Hakuya to marry him. Does she love him? No. It seems that their species doesn’t have a lot of males, so her mother taught her to ask one in marriage if she ever met one.
What does this mean? I understand that not everyone is impressed by this. It certainly isn’t enough for people to get excited about what’s to come. To me, it just means that Kobeni has a rival now and that she needs to think about her feelings for Hakuya, especially since Hakuya’s feelings for her are so obvious. The ball’s pretty much in Kobeni’s court.
Kobeni must’ve realized that there are other girls out there that would love to become Hakuya’s partner. Sure, Hakuya won’t budge for as long as they’re engaged, but it sure put Kobeni on the spot and it was enough to light the fuse. Kobeni kind of confessed (with the help of Mashiro). It could be too soon to say, but this might be the official start of their relationship (as engaged boyfriend and girlfriend).
All good news so far! Hell, its great news! But the ending seriously worries me. Benio suddenly entered demon-mode and started to sabotage Hakuya when Mashiro kind of confessed for Kobeni. Benio knew that they were engaged, but could it be that she never took it seriously? Did she thing that Kobeni would refuse? It sure seems that Benio is against it. I’m starting to get a little worried…Read More
I have no motivation left. None whatsoever. Space Brothers has become annoyingly boring to watch and somewhat of an annoying chore to write about. I will try to hold out until the hundredth episode before I stop writing about it altogether. I like even numbers.
Sometimes you get one of those episodes that really make you think. That make you enjoy watching the show. Unfortunately, those episodes are getting rarer and rarer. I can’t remember the last time I watched an episode that I had to see twice. It’s been so long. Why else would the ratings be down for the last few weeks?
It’s too much of the same thing. Mutta is back in Houston for some more training where he met up with Serika. His flame has, of course, been relit and suddenly Serika has become his number one again. It’s obvious that he hasn’t had some in quite a long time, but it’s ridiculous to see a character change that much. Well, let the training continue, I guess… At least it was nice to see a good scene at the end of the episode. Good job, Kenji!Read More
Just four more episodes… Only four episodes until this season ends. What have we accomplished so far? Not much. I don’t know what they’re going to do or how they’re going to do it. I’m pretty sure that my long-awaited wish isn’t going to happen.
Yugo is back from the hospital and he’s still in a huge slump because he missed the festival and probably also because nobody came to see him. This would be a good time to get over it. It’s just so annoying that he’s so spineless. Just tell Aki-chan how you feel about her instead of stuttering like some idiot when you ask her if her promise to go out alone somewhere still stands. It’s embarrassing and pathetic. Aki is completely inexperienced and quite naive when it comes to love, so it’s really entirely up to Yugo to make that big first step. Either do it already or just give up and find someone else to follow around.
There is no way for me to go around this or any point in writing a whole story about it, but yeah, Ichiro, the school’s baseball talent whose pitching is said to be monstrous, lost at the end when one of his teammates failed to catch the decisive ball. They will not be advancing to the finals. No more baseball for them until next year.
Yugo and Aki won’t end up together. I’m pretty sure that won’t happen anytime soon. At least let Yugo figure out what he wants to do with the rest of his life. At least give this season some kind of purpose. It’s been a strange ride thus far and although I’ve learned quite a lot about farm live, I still find it rather disappointing that there has been very little character progress.Read More
