K: Return of Kings episode 02

I still remember writing about the first season. I know it was somewhere in 2012, but I still remember it quite well. It had an interesting start and a very good ending, which is something you don’t see very often anymore.

[Ohys-Raws] K Return of Kings - 02 (TBS 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_14.34_[2015.10.11_23.47.44]How could I not write about the second season? Watching Neko and that busty blonde makes it all worthwhile. And this season seems ever so promising now that we already know that Yashiro is the Silver King and that the Blue King’s time is almost up. I’m also hoping that we get to meet the other kings as well.

K has simply done very well. There are two season and a movie and I’m sure there’s more to come. I, at this point, just want to see Yashiro return to help deal with that JUNGLE nonsense. I’m not going to deny that the Green King is brilliant by obtaining clansmen this way. In fact, it gives the blue’s and red’s free target practice. I just want to see more of it.

Concrete Revolutio: Choujin Gensou

I’m not sure if I will be watching this. I read about it and I’ve seen several images and I started to compare it to No Game No Life (animation-wise). Imagine my surprise when I fired up the episode and saw what this show has to offer me.

Concrete Revolutio Choujin GensouThe artwork is really nothing special. In fact, at times I wasn’t really sure whether I was watching Japanese anime or some American cartoon. I suppose it takes some time getting used to.

The trickiest part of this show is definitely the story. It’s so easy to get confused. You have to really pay attention to every detail. The story might seem a little interesting if you think about it, but I think a lot of people will get fed up with getting confused by it all the time. I hope it was just the first episode.

It’s a difficult show to recommend, especially if you’re confused by what you saw. It’s a weird show and brings up a lot of questions. Half of the time I didn’t even know what the hell was going on. I suggest you could give the first episode a try and see for yourselves, but I suggest you skip this if you don’t like weird, confusing stories.

Plot Summary: Tokyo is flooded with countless heroes — chōjin — during the time of “apotheosis.” Their origin stories are all different. While some were altered by evil organizations, others came from space, magical worlds, or are fairies from ancient times or robots. But the Japanese government could not simply close its eyes as these superheroes ran rampant.

K: Return of Kings

And here it is again! The anime whose name is probably the shortest ever; K! The first season took my completely by surprise. I loved watching it and I’m sure I’m going to love the second season just as much.

K Return of KingsThe first episode really packed a real punch. A lot of awesome action and I simply love how they’ve done it. It’s like watching an awesome movie. Very high quality stuff. The level of detail is simply superb. Besides, watching that busty blonde makes it all worthwhile even if the artwork wasn’t as good as this.

The first season had a pretty solid story. Very hard to predict and full of interesting twists and drama. I am very hopeful that this season is going to be even better with the Blue King now running out of time as well.

I absolutely do recommend this. I am quite find of shows where the characters have supernatural powers. If those shows happen to have artwork as good as this one and a story to match then I’m pretty much sold from start to finish.

Plot Summary: In modern Japan there are seven “Kings” who share power with their fellow clansmen. The Blue King Reishi Munakata, the leader of the Blue Clan “Scepter 4,” held great responsibilities on his back. The tower that Gold King Daikaku Kokujōji supervised called the “Dresden Slate” was still on his mind, and he felt a great burden by killing the previous Red King, Mikoto Suoh. On the other hand, the former Red Clan “HOMRA” clansman Anna Kushina experienced the attacks from the Green Clan “Jungle” and awakened as the next Red King. By doing this, she bound her comrades through a strong bond once again. Finally, White Clan members Neko and Kuroh believe that the White King Yashiro is still alive, and seek his whereabouts. However, it was not just them searching for the White King. With “Jungle” once again jumping back into action, the fates of the various Kings are brought together.

One Punch Man

Oh my god. My mailbox was being spammed by messages from people saying that I should definitely check this out. Ever since the new anime chart was published it’s been nothing but hype. Even the manga seems to be booming.

One Punch ManThe sad thing is that I don’t understand why. The artwork is nothing special. The protagonist looks rather weird and those enemies he fights, except for the last ones, look pointless and stupid. You really have to like this sort of thing to be able to appreciate it.

The story doesn’t really sit well with me either. There’s no background information. That bald guy suddenly gained super powers after he defeated a weird-looking crab monster? Come on… I am not at all a fan of slapstick comedies where they try (and fail) to push out a serious action story.

I am simply not impressed by what I’ve seen so far. Not at all. I don’t think that I will be following this if the second episode is exactly like the first. I don’t see any reason why I should tell anyone any different.

Plot Summary: One-Punch Man is a super hero who has trained so hard that his hair has fallen out, and who can overcome any enemy with one punch. However, because he is so strong, he has become bored and frustrated with winning all his battles so easily.

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.
