A new character, new mysteries and new possibilities. I have to admit that the latest character sure clears things up a little if you ask me. It answered quite a few questions that I’m sure a lot of other fans had for the past few weeks (or pretty much since the start).
So this new character shows up (in a rather flashy way) and things already get out of hand. In fact, he challenged Koro-sensei right away to a match after school. Of course, Koro-sensei, thinking he’s the fastest creature alive, agreed to that challenge because he thought he would win either way. That, if you ask me, is his biggest weakness. He automatically assumes he’ll win.
Still, things did not go completely his way. That new guy showed that he, too, had a few of those handy tentacles. That’s when Koro-sensei’s smile definitely disappeared. He was dodging and using all sorts of tricks in order to escape death. He only got away because he has more experience than that boy, otherwise things might not have ended so well for Koro-sensei.
Anyway, we learned quite a few things. We learned that Koro-sensei and that buy were probably man-made life forms. That makes more sense than him being an alien somehow. I mean, yeah, he destroyed the moon, proving that he can travel through space, but branding him an alien would seem rather weird. No, but him being a man-made creature makes a little more sense. Let’s face it; humanity is always trying to destroy itself one way or another. Finding out that a group of scientists made some creature in some lab that then destroyed the moon sounds actually quite plausible.Read More
Well, I don’t think it would take a genius to see that there’s definitely another season coming in the (near) future. And why not? The Tokyo Ghoul series have been a huge success in ratings and the first season has done quite well in sales as well.
Now then; Ken has once again lost another friend. First it was the old man and now his best friend, Hide. I thought it was quite touching how that guy knew from the start that Ken had become a ghoul. He knew and he still helped Ken by taking him to safety after his fight against the almighty Amon-kun. Not only did he do that because he was his friend, he did it even though he was fatally wounded himself. He didn’t care about seeking medical attention, he just wanted to drag Ken to a quiet spot where his colleagues wouldn’t be able to find and kill him. Now that’s true friendship for you!
And Touka? Yeah. She just almost everyone. She still has a few friends left on the planet, but the Anteiku staff have given their lives in the attempt to defend their beloved café. It’s a damn shame that it burned down, but Touka already decided to continue its legacy if I saw correctly. Nice to see that the deaths of so many of her friends didn’t end up destroying her life.
As for Ken… Well… He took Hide’s body back to his colleagues. Probably so they can give him a proper burial. Was it a smart move? Not at all. He was standing against a guy that took on the real One-Eyed Owl on his own. How the hell is Ken supposed to beat someone like that when he couldn’t even deal with the ghoul that he helped save a few weeks ago? We’ll just have to wait till the next season I guess…Read More
Another episode, another chance and yet another mistake on Nanami’s part. That girl will never learn to mind her own business. She refuses to accept the fact that there are things in that world that she shouldn’t meddle with.
But first; we have this demon that used to raise hell alongside Tomoe. He is trying hard to get his own body back and he even got the help of the same demon that sealed away the soul of that old Tengu, even though he was recently defeated by Nanami, a girl that doesn’t even know how to use her powers properly. Still, the guy went back to the netherworld in search of his body and actually found out where they kept it (or rather tried to destroy it). Now all he has to do is ask Tomoe for his help, seeing as he’s probably the only one that can do something about those flames.
That’ll have to wait though. Tomoe is busy trying to learn more and more about Nanami and her past. I certainly can’t blame him; I for one loved those scenes. I know that Nanami’s upbringing was irregular to say the least, but you can clearly tell that she had parents that cared about her, even if her father was a lowly gambler that gambled away all of their money and if her mother was dying from some illness that they haven’t yet told us about (I think). It is simply amazing that she turned out so well even though she had a father like that and had to spend most of her time growing up without her mother by her side. That’s very, very impressive.Read More
You know, the problem with Assassination Classroom is that they are always trying to keep things lively and interesting by doing the exact same thing over and over again. Most anime do it like this, but in Assassination Classroom it happens too often.
I’m sure a lot of you have noticed already. Every time they try to keep things interesting and lively they do so by introducing a new character or two. It was the same with that teacher, with that red-haired kid, that computer and this time it’s going to be a couple of characters that seem to have some sort of a connection to Koro-sensei. Don’t get me wrong, I like all of the characters so far, but there’s a limit to how long this’ll last. You cannot keep introducing new characters just to keep things interesting. It gets out of hand quite easily.
But hey, ignoring that ridiculous competition amongst teacher’s nonsense, I found it quite nice to see how Koro-sensei cares about his students by taking them on trips, looking after them and making sure that they get all the attention and support they need. It is still hard to believe that he plans to destroy the earth.
Nevertheless, I have a feeling that the following episode are going to tell us a bit more about that creature. We already got a hint a few weeks back about the possibility of Koro-sensei’s humanity at one point in time. Maybe those two new characters might shed some light about what he is or where he comes from.Read More
I hate myself for saying this; but this post has to be kept short due to a gross shortage of time. That and I feel like I’m about to die. I think that nasty fever has returned or something because I feel absolutely terrible.
Anyway, this long-awaited episode finally aired and I watched it with a smile on my face. I watched how the real One-eyed Owl tore apart the bastards that took down the old man. I don’t know if that really is that man’s daughter, seeing as she laughed quite a lot, but that ghoul definitely seemed to care enough to get really angry.
What about reckless Ken? Well, I guess he’s improving. He did not surrender to the madness within and maintained in control the entire time during his fight against Amon-chan. I just want to see how this’ll end. I don’t think he’s going to attack his old friend and I don’t think that One-eyed Owl is going to win somehow. Things are not looking well. I can’t wait to see what happens!Read More
