Dragon Ball Super

It’s back! Millions of fans all over the world must be foaming at the mouth right about now! I love the Dragon Ball series so much! I watched several episodes every week. I refused to be home late so that I wouldn’t miss a single episode. I’m feeling so nostalgic right now…

Dragon Ball SuperNobody would ever knock Dragon Ball for its artwork. It’s sublime. The attacks, the characters and the level of detail; it’s all so incredibly good. You could pick out any of the Saiyans out of a hundred character line-up within seconds. They are simply that iconic.

Dragon Ball Super continues the story after Kid Buu was defeated and before Videl got pregnant and gave birth to Pan. I am loving that! I also love the fact that we’re going to see more of that purple rabbit guy that we’ve seen in the latest movie. I don’t mind seeing him as the new bad guy.

I definitely recommend this. You’d be a fool not to watch this. I even have old Dragon Ball trading cards from when I was a kid in an old map. I am truly happy that Dragon Ball is back and I will be watching this with a huge, child-like smile on my face every week.

Plot Summary: After defeating Majin Buu, life is peaceful once again. Ordered by Chi-chi to earn money, Goku works even as he wants to train even more. Meanwhile, Goten, about to become a brother-in-law to Videl, sets out on a journey with Trunks to find her a present.

Charlotte

Another farfetched story about high schoolers with super powers. Well, I suppose this might be one of the better ones. I liked last season’s show with the seven witches so there’s a good chance that this will be good as well.

CharlotteThere is nothing wrong with the artwork. It looks good. Aniplex really does great work. The level of detail is also very nice. I don’t really see anything in Yuu, one of the main characters, but his little sister is adorable and quite well-made.

These stories tend to become rather weird, causing people to stop watching half-way. I’ve seen it happen many times and it happened to me several times as well with similar shows.

My recommendation is the same as the last post; give it a try if you like super power-genre anime.

Plot Summary: Special abilities occur among a small percentage of boys and girls in puberty. Yū Otosaka uses his power without others knowing, and lives a fairly normal, average school life. Before him suddenly appears a girl, Nao Tomori. Due to his meeting with her, the fate of special power-users will be exposed.

Kekkai Sensen episode 11

Well, I am happy that they didn’t waste an actual episode on those recaps last week, but I feel as though this episode could’ve been like that as well. I’m not saying it was an uninteresting episode, but it was about a character that doesn’t really interest me personally.

[Ohys-Raws] Kekkai Sensen - 11 (MBS 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_00.04_[2015.06.23_23.13.05]More than half of this week’s episode was dedicated to that girl and her brother. We were shown how they grew up, what hardships they faced together and how they came to be the individuals that they are today. That’s all nice, but I feel as though they’ve spent too much time on those two characters this week. Some of it wasn’t even necessary.

Anyhow, the last six or so minutes were really about Leonardo getting his ass handed to him by that blood brood brat. I’m not sure how things will go from here on out, but he needs Leonardo’s eyes to complete whatever ritual he’s trying to complete. Klaus and his men need to show up fast in order to help their friend and save the world once again.

Kekkai Sensen episode 10

… I do not get this episode at all. Not one bit. Kekkai Sensen is nearing its end as only two episodes remain. So why spend the tenth episode on something like this? It was funny for the first few minutes, but I did not want to watch them go to all those restaurants for 15 minutes.

[Ohys-Raws] Kekkai Sensen - 10 (MBS 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_21.58_[2015.06.09_23.39.08]I honestly don’t know what to say about this episode. What is there to say? They want from restaurant to restaurant in order to find edible food. What was the point of Zapp trying to bully the new guy like that? He was doing himself a mischief as well by denying himself food for the better part of their day… What a pointless episode.

It’s sad that the last couple of minutes were the only part of this episode that was worth watching. It seems that Leonardo is finally about to face that blood breed. It’ll be interesting to see how he’ll deal with that girl as her brother tries to steal his eyes. This should be interesting.

Kekkai Sensen episode 09

Okay… This new character was not as I had expected. I am aware that Kekkai Sensen has loads of non-human characters. I was just expecting to see yet another human since all of the Libra members seem to be human.

[Ohys-Raws] Kekkai Sensen - 09 (MBS 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_06.07_[2015.06.02_23.26.01]So this new character… It’s a fish-man. I honestly haven’t memorized his name yet, but he looked pretty weird. He’s like the exact opposite of Zapp. Zapp’s a scrawny idiot that acts before he thinks. He’s childish, unmotivated and rarely seems to take things serious. Sure, he’s there when it counts and always seems to get the job done, but then we meet this other students, a fish-man. This bigger, bluer version of Zapp seems a lot more serious. They have the same fighting style, so I’m kind of hoping that the two will end up competing amongst each other so that both of them can become better. Isn’t that how that usually goes?

[Ohys-Raws] Kekkai Sensen - 09 (MBS 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_09.40_[2015.06.02_23.26.17]Anyway, that master left fish-man with Libra. He is their latest member and will help them in their fight against the blood breeds. Nothing special. We all saw that one coming. Why else would he summon his other student when he could’ve easily taken out that blood breed himself? So yeah, stop watching if you were surprised by that.

I’m more interesting in finding out how the blood breeds plan to get a hold of Leonardo and his all-seeing eyes. They want those eyes for obvious reason, but getting them will be quite challenging when he has Libra to protect him. But hey, if Leonardo was right and there really are thousands of them then even Libra can’t protect him for long. This should be interesting… That girl will probably end up being his ultimate flaw.
