Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin episode 02

So the midget detective finally shows herself, huh? I’m kind of putting a lot of hope into this show. I have high expectations and am kind of hoping for a good ending, which the Japanese aren’t really known for if you ask me.

[HorribleSubs] Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_00.36_[2014.04.18_23.38.23]So Juugo already found one of Nanana’s treasures, huh? You’d think that Nanana would be rather agitated after finding out that people are successfully finding and taking all of the items that she collected when she was still alive, but no… She genuinely seems to encourage it. Whom else besides Juugo would end up finding any of it? He’s the protagonist. All female and male characters will get drawn to him. Unfortunately, male characters in female clothing are no exception. We already have one of those. How many more can we expect to see, huh?

[HorribleSubs] Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.28_[2014.04.18_23.39.13]Anyway, Juugo is already being dragged into something that he has no knowledge of. He knows a little about Nanana and her treasure, the one that murdered her and about the island itself. That’s it. He knows nothing else, yet he’s already being involved by unknown characters that undoubtedly have motives of their own.

It’s quite obvious to me that this is going to be one of those chases. People chase after Juugo, Nanana chases after her murderer and Juugo chases after Nanana’s treasure. At one point all of them will meet in the middle and it’s all going to come out. I have no idea how romance has anything to do with this yet. I’ll just have to wait and see.

No Game No Life episode 02

I am absolutely loving No Game No Life! You are given an idea of what to expect from the story, but then it suddenly takes a strange turn and you can start all over again. I, too, have an idea of what Sora wants right now, but that could change again next week.

[HorribleSubs] No Game No Life - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.02_[2014.04.17_22.56.47]No Game No Life is pure magic. Sora struck me as the type of character that wants an easy life behind a PC where he can play the rest of his life. Shiro is somewhat similar, but only because she pretty much follows her brother in everything he does. You could very well say that Sora is responsible for his little sister’s mental issues.

This episode is one hell of an example… Sora defeated Stephanie in a game of rock, paper and scissors, after which he ordered her to fall in love with him. It’s moments like these that you realize how messed up that guy truly is. The worst part is that that poor girl has to obey and fall in love with him. She no longer has any choice.

[HorribleSubs] No Game No Life - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.28_[2014.04.17_22.57.24]There are many things that I still want to point out, but I hate reading huge posts that go about nothing, so I always try to keep my posts short and simple. I was actually quite shocked when I saw what happened when the two of them are separated. They become weak little creatures that can no longer function properly. Only when they’re together do they act all high and mighty. This could prove to be quite difficult when they’re going to take on “royalty”. They may be great at playing games, but they sure have a lot of weaknesses, which makes it all the more interesting.

Mekakucity Actors

What is it with this season? A lot of stories about NEETs and the like… Not that I mind, of course… I will watch anything as long as it’s good. In fact, the more the better, right? That’s why I’m pretty satisfied with this particular show.

Mekakucity ActorsThey did not hold back on the artwork. It looks pretty good. You can tell that Aniplex has something to do with it. I’m already a fan of that female computer character. Her cocky attitude and sci-fi looks are a pretty interesting combination.

It’s another story about a NEET and special abilities. You can hardly go wrong there. I also saw that it’s supposed to be quite romantic, but I failed to see that. I would not slap the romance label on this one.

I will watch it because it caught my eye and I ended up enjoying the first episode. I suggest you do the same thing.

Plot Summary: The incidents which occurred on August 14th and 15th bring a group of young boys and girls together… They are members of a group they call themselves the “Mekakushi Dan” (Blindfold Organization) and each member possesses a strange power involving their eyes.

Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin

Is it safe to assume that this one’s a jackpot? I was truly very fascinated by it and I’m already looking forward to the next episode. It could use a little bit more ecchiness (sue me if you disagree) and perhaps a few more episodes.

Ryuugajou Nanana no MaizoukinAn A-1 Picture and Aniplex combination… Hell yeah! Have you ever noticed how these companies keep animating hit shows? I mean, everything they’ve animated so far has been rated pretty darn high. This one is no exception. The artwork looks great. Very detailed and nice-looking characters. I am loving this so far!

The story doesn’t fall far behind. Hell, it might be even better than the artwork. A boy moves into a haunted room where he becomes friends with the ghost of a murdered genius whose buried treasure has yet to be found? Yeah… Well done!

I fully recommend this. It’s interesting, beautiful and overall very enjoyable. I dare call it a must-watch. You’ll laugh, you’ll cheer and some of you weaker minded will probably cry every now and then.

Plot Summary: Disowned by his father, Jugo Yama has run away from home to the island of Nanae. He begins to live by himself, only to discover his room is haunted by the ghost of Nanana Ryugajo. She was murdered ten years ago, and her killer must be found before she can rest in peace. Before her death, Nanana collected things from all over the world and hid them throughout the island. Using the mysterious powers of these hidden items, they should be able to find the culprit. As Jugo begins his hunt for her collection, however, he discovers he’s not the only person searching.

Sidonia no Kishi

This is going to be freakishly complicated. I have no idea how to express myself when it comes to Sidonia no Kishi. It’s very hard to describe even though I actually enjoyed the first episode. I never thought that I would come to look this.

Sidonia no KishiThe artwork is the main issue here. It’s a sort of 2D mixed in with 2.5D characters. It’s a very strange mixture and you’ll definitely have to get used to this sort of thing, but I actually liked it. I found it rather amusing and ended up enjoying the first episode, even though it’s from the same people that messed up Aku no Hana beyond belief.

The story is pretty cool. It’s interesting, quite well thought out and shows quite a lot of promise. Pump in a little bit of drama and you really have something here.

Do I recommend it…? I don’t know. It’s really difficult. I know that a lot of people are going to dislike this one because of the artwork. Like I said; you have to get used to it. I ended up liking it even though this normally isn’t my type of show. Just give it a try…

Plot Summary: It’s been a thousand years since the Gauna, a strange alien race with no known method of communication, destroyed the solar system. A portion of humanity managed to escape using enormous “seed ships” like the Sidonia, which have allowed them to maintain the population while drifting through space. Nagate Tanikaze is a young man who has been raised deep in the bowels of the ship. When he goes into training to pilot the huge robotic weapons known as Gardes, Nagate is entrusted with piloting the legendary unit known as Tsugumori. Nagate and his fellow pilots put their lives on the line against the Gauna, in the ultimate battle for the survival of humanity.
