Kekkai Sensen episode 03

So last week’s episode contained quite a bit of action. It also contained a little glimpse of what we can expect from the protagonist. It almost seemed as though they wanted to hint us about a possible power-up.

[Ohys-Raws] Kekkai Sensen - 03 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_07.15_[2015.04.20_23.25.09]So this episode kind of disappointed because I feel as though it didn’t contribute anything. There was no action and not a lot of progress to be very honest. Perhaps I set the bar a little too high when that girl suddenly showed up last week, but they haven’t done anything about that. That girl is still a complete mystery.

Basically, they, and by they I mean Klaus, played a game that resembles chess against some demon overlord in order to gain some information about a game-changing drug that’s known as Angel Scale or something. It was very uneventful, although we did get to see yet another female character that seems to be quite strong. I’ll be looking forward to learning more about those characters.

Seraph of the End episode 03

Okay, an interesting episode, but also a highly predictable twist. I just don’t understand why people reacted so surprised. I read two different topics about how public are shocked about this episode’s ending. Why? I could’ve told you that this would happen after I saw episode one.

[Ohys-Raws] Owari no Seraph - 03 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_07.13_[2015.04.19_23.46.15]I don’t like to start right on the twist. I like to review an episode as it goes. But hey, this is my blog and my will is law here. People are so damn surprised that Mikaela, Yuuichirou’s friend, is still alive. They are also surprised that he has been turned into a vampire. Fine, I will admit that I did not expect him to be a vampire, but I was completely certain that he was still alive. We never actually saw him die. We only really saw how Yuuichirou escaped. The rest was very vague. This made things very easy to predict. They focussed so much on Mikaela that there’s no way that they would kill him off right away.

[Ohys-Raws] Owari no Seraph - 03 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_22.00_[2015.04.19_23.46.39]Anyway, Yuuichirou is doing his best. He is still not worried about partnering up with someone and only cares about slaying vampires. The problem with that is that he’s lacking in many departments. He has no experience, knowledge or weapon to take on those vampires. Especially not one that’s equipped to fight against demon-wielding humans.

Also, Yuuichirou came into contact with a demon that takes on the form of an axe. I honestly don’t think that they match. Yuuichirou should not wield an axe. A scythe maybe, but definitely not an axe. He should just stick to blades. Seeing that kid swing a blade would be ridiculous. A scythe is big too, but at least those look kind of awesome.

Assassination Classroom episode 13

Epic! This episode was completely and totally epic. There are no other words to describe it. I thought that we would get another class E bashing episode, but this completely blew away all my expectations. Well done!

[Ohys-Raws] Ansatsu Kyoushitsu - 13 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_01.07_[2015.04.18_23.42.43]The episode started out very interestingly. All the students were practicing their close quarter’s combat techniques again with Karasuma-sensei and things got out of hand when our favourite blue-haired kid scared the daylights out of him for a split second. This alone was more than enough to keep me interested throughout the episode.

That’s when some big guy showed up that claimed to be their new teacher. He was supposedly instructed to turn those kids into ruthless killers as soon as possible. I’m not even going to mention his pointless and merciless methods. Let’s just say that his appearance brought to light a talented young assassin.

[Ohys-Raws] Ansatsu Kyoushitsu - 13 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_13.06_[2015.04.18_23.42.59]You see, none of the students wanted him as a teacher. The guy was a monster. He hit students, came up with a ridiculous training schedule and even forced them to recognize him as their “father”. I’m not even going to explore whatever daddy issues that guy has. I’m just happy that Nagisa-kun got picked as a representative for his class and successfully managed to defeat that guy. That’s right, he got defeated by a student whose talents finally became clear to all of the teachers (and perhaps students). This was truly a great episode with a lot of awesome developments!

Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo

Wow… This might actually be pretty good. When I read that it was going to be another one of those shows where the characters trade bodies I became sort of disappointed. God only knows how many of those there are already. But no… This was actually quite amusing and interesting.

Yamada-kun to 7-nin no MajoThe artwork is pretty good. The characters look nice, the level of detail is good… Sure, there are things that I don’t really appreciate, like some of those character expressions, but hey… That’ll happen.

The story is what interests me. The main heroine isn’t your typical girly girl. Soon more will show up and it makes me curious about their personalities. I basically just want to see what’s going to happen.

Recommendable? Yeah. I think so. Why not? It’s funny, a little ecchi (yay) and contains traces of romance and huge doses of supernatural abilities. So yeah, why not?

Plot Summary: One day, high school boy Yamada bumps into the beautiful female honor student Shiraishi on the stairs (literally), and their lips touch as they fall. When they regain their wits, they realize that they have swapped bodies. As time progresses, the two realize that this is not the only mysterious happening in the school.

Kekkai Sensen episode 02

I feel like I am gambling by picking this show to write about. I like the concept, I like the story so far and I like most of the characters. I am known to pick at least one show that looks promising, but turns out to be very disappointing.

[Ohys-Raws] Kekkai Sensen - 02 (MBS 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_06.54_[2015.04.14_00.09.16]So Leonardo, the boy whose eyes supposedly belong to god and are known for being able to see every single thing, ended up joining a secret organisation known as Libra. This is fine. I can understand that you want to team up with other like-minded people instead of taking on the world on your own. I can also understand the chief’s decision to put Zapp on bodyguard duty to make sure that Leonardo doesn’t get into too much trouble, seeing as he’s their new important asset and hasn’t really gotten any experience in the field yet.

[Ohys-Raws] Kekkai Sensen - 02 (MBS 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_13.54_[2015.04.14_00.09.34]What I cannot understand is how Leonardo, with the use of his special eyes, managed to see how a ghoulish-looking bus disguised itself as a regular delivery bus and how to ghoulish-looking creatures disguised as regular humans managed to abduct Leonardo after they nearly killed Zapp. It feels like we skipped something.

Let’s face it; there’s a lot that we don’t know yet. This story is only making a little sense. I mean, what were those creatures? Why go through all that trouble? How can they hide so damn well in public? Those are all things that need to be explained before things start making a bit more sense. Also, I think those characters look and acted a bit too childish for my taste, but okay…
