Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei episode 17

Another marvelous episode. I think it’s a disgrace how the ratings have dropped. It had an eight average when the show first started and still rising as time went on, but these past few weeks have been a disaster for the ratings. Why? I don’t understand. I really don’t.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 17 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.45_[2014.07.27_23.06.07]So the organization behind all the sabotages decided to turn up the heat in order to sabotage First High from winning any more matches. Their methods and priorities have been completely altered by the fact that Tatsuya defeated Third High. They no longer care about student safety. They just want to ensure that they come out on top at any cost. I noticed one of them saying that their lives depended on it, which means that they are not the masterminds. There is someone out there so powerful and influential that those sick pr*cks no longer mind killing students because they themselves are scared.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 17 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.48_[2014.07.27_23.06.21]Anyway, Tatsuya didn’t seem bothered. He stayed one step ahead of those fools by giving Miyuki the ability to use Flying Magic, which is one of Tatsuya’s newest sequences that has only been released last month. Never mind that Azusa already discovered that Tatsuya is Taurus Silver, seeing as it’s only a matter of time before the rest of the students discover it.

Also, wasn’t it brilliant how Tatsuya prevented that guy from tampering with Miyuki’s CAD? He was mad as hell and took him down within seconds. Fools. You cannot fool Tatsuya. His greatness overwhelms all else. It’s only a matter of time before Tatsuya strikes back. The only difference is that Tatsuya, unlike those morons, never fails to accomplish his missions.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 369

I think next week’s episode should be the last of the flashback episodes. I’ve seen quite enough of the First Hokage and Madara when they were younger. Madara was never really one of the characters that sparked my interest, so that’s why I sound so unmotivated.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 369 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.40_[2014.07.26_23.34.52]I have to admit that the battle between Madara and the First Hokage was definitely worth mentioning. The first actually managed to stop Madara and his Susano’o covered Tailed Beast from destroying everything. To think that the Nine Tails was that easily stopped is just madness… It took Naruto’s father a lot of trouble and two lives (his wives’ and his own) to seal away a part of the Nine Tails within himself and in his newborn son. The First just stopped him with just his Sage Mode and is putting severe pressure on Madara right now. It would seem that all the Hokage pale in comparison to that guy… Until Naruto, of course…

Tokyo Ghoul episode 04

Do you know what I hate about Tokyo Ghoul? The pace. It’s too damn slow. Ken still doesn’t know anything. He knows nothing about how the Ghoul world works and has no idea how to defend himself or remain in control when his Ghoul side takes over.

[Ohys-Raws] Tokyo Ghoul - 04 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_10.15_[2014.07.25_23.32.39]I do like the fact that everything’s so detailed. A few episodes ago they focused on how Ghouls can’t eat human food without getting sick, so they have to pretend to eat it and barf it up afterwards. Digesting it could prove dangerous. Touka ate a bit what her friend prepared for her and she insisted on digesting it. She did not want to spit it out because it was her friend that gave it to her. Now that is impressive! They focus on how rough it is on Ghouls and what it could do to them, yet Touka went through with it. I wonder if she actually could get sick from a small bite like that.

[Ohys-Raws] Tokyo Ghoul - 04 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_20.43_[2014.07.25_23.32.56]So this guy, Shuu, shows up and wants to be friends with Ken. Never mind the possibility of Ken being the strongest creature out there. I want to know how Ken can be so incredibly naïve. He knew that he was following a Ghoul… Did he learn absolutely nothing from his encounters with Rize or Nishiki? It’s about time he grew up a bit.

I’m also a little bit disappointed in his lack of ability. He loses control quite easily when he is in danger (probably survival instinct), but he has no control and he has no idea how to use that power. He’s like a little boy with a hand grenade. Renji needs to train him more in order to prepare him for what’s out there. Ken stands no chance right now.

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei episode 16

Amazing episode. I would expect nothing less from Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei. Now some cocky high school boys, tomorrow some cocky world leaders. Tatsuya definitely has it in him. What a great character.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 16 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.06_[2014.07.20_23.02.41]I kept thinking about Tatsuya’s family after he defeated that cocky brat. His family still annoys me more than any of the characters. Do they know about his secret life? Do they know that he is a rare breed of talent and one of the very few people on the planet capable of doing what he does? They should kiss his feet and beg him to market some of his inventions.

Yep, I still cannot get over it. I remember how his father stood there as some no-name butler was insulting him as though he was a piece of trash from the streets. He ignores Tatsuya’s existence completely when he’s not being rude to him. I would pay the animators to create a scene where Tatsuya was giving that guy hell. I really would.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 16 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.48_[2014.07.20_23.03.20]Anyway, Tatsuya and his two friends won the match against Third High. Well done. Tatsuya showed a couple of near-impossible moves and probably blew his cover in doing so. It’s obvious to anyone that he’s battle tested and ridiculously talented, but when you see the guy do something that you thought was impossible… Well… It kind of raises a red flag. No doubt that that old man is interested in Tatsuya, but after he witnessed Tatsuya instant-heal himself… Boy, it’s going to get rough. I feel it. That old man isn’t fooled so easily and he had his eyes on Tatsuya from the very beginning. I can’t wait to see what happens.

Tokyo Ghoul episode 03

Not a very eventful episode, was it? I guess I kind of got used to the insane amount of horrific action that your average Tokyo Ghoul episode contains. It was still a very good episode despite all that. I learned a lot about their way of life.

[Ohys-Raws] Tokyo Ghoul - 03 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_10.22_[2014.07.18_23.42.13]This episode made me thing about which side to choose. I think I’m going for the Ghouls, but not because the main character is mostly Ghoul now. Think about… Humans eat pretty much everything and Ghouls only eat humans. We humans devour everything to the point of extinction, so can I really be negative about the fact that Ghouls eat humans? Isn’t that, in that world, their food chain? Ghouls are overall pretty wicked and horrible, but humans don’t lose out. A lot of them are insane and care only about slaughtering Ghouls for fun. That is basically why I picked the Ghouls; they kill humans in order to survive, but humans kill Ghouls because they want to remain in control of the food chain (and some do it for fun).

[Ohys-Raws] Tokyo Ghoul - 03 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_14.00_[2014.07.18_23.42.18]It may not have been very eventful, but we learned a lot. We know how those guys get their food. They basically eat the bodies of people that committed suicide. They are basically cleaning the place up if you think about. That way they won’t have to resort to killing “innocent” people. Not that it matters. There are more human beings than there are Ghouls. A lot more.

I think next week’s episode should mark the start of hell on earth (so to speak). Ken will get his mask, which will be awesome, and I’m pretty sure a battle is just waiting around the corner. Don’t you want to see what Ken is capable of when he’s pushed into a corner by a powerful enemy? I’m sure that we’ve only caught a glimpse of what he is truly capable of when he goes nuts.
