Ah yeah! Just when I’d opened my mouth and called this show slightly average, it shows me an amazing space battle. It’s high time this show shoved aside all that character development and moral lesson crap and just threw punches! Let’s go! Read more…
So many amazing panels this week that I had trouble pairing it down!
It looks like the Edo Tensei has backfired. Orochimaru’s used it to
ressurrect the four previous Hokage, and now we’re down to a test of
strength between them and the Juubi.
It was funny seeing Hashirama kinda brush off his old friend to take
care of business. Madara was just kinda annoyed, and appears to be
just letting the Hokage do their thing. His hard-on for Hashirama is
pretty strong. I’ll avoid the gay jokes, and just say it’s endearing.
And then Sasuke shows up, and everything gets real weird. And I knew
it would get that way, too. I just wasn’t expecting Sasuke’s reaction
to it. As if he and Naruto weren’t already at odds. And as usual, I
don’t agree with what Sasuke has said.
I don’t agree that everyone is in this predicament because of the
Hokages. I believe everyone is in this predicament because of the
Uchiha clan, and especially because of Madara Uchiha.
You damned idiot!
Whatever! Team Seven’s back together… well, except for Kakashi.
He’s having a conference in another dimension. Man, what a
This has been quite honestly, my most successful season since I started blogging. I’ve watched several anime before, but I wasn’t attempting to write about all of them on an episode by episode basis. Even better yet, I used to just watch a series in bulk. I’d either get a DVD or find a batch of files and watch until I got tired, or I ran out of material. The only time that ever backfired was when I was watching the original Code Geass (why would they have a six month break between episode 23 and the end of the series?!). Now I’m watching seven (maybe eight) series at the moment, and their pretty much all to the halfway point. So instead of doing a “Check-in” post on all seven, I’m gonna give the run down for the majority in one post, right here. That way I can get on with whatever other projects I’m working on at the moment.
Now then, let’s get started. I’ll do this in whatever random order I choose. I will not be assigning score or rank. I will just be assigning opinions. Read more…
I find a lack of communication one of my key pet peeves. It’s such an annoyance to me, that I’m surprised more people don’t ask why I bother watching anime. So much of the medium relies on terrible communication to form its concepts, draw out its storytelling and fuel its romance. So if you’ve already watched this episode of Gargantia, you can guess what I’m annoyed by. But I’m going to be fair, unlike before I’m not going to wag my finger just at the hippies. There’s plenty of blame, shortsightedness and stupidity to go around. Read more…
A lot could be said about a person’s desires. Much can be said about what a person’s desires means to that person. But not many people like to look in the mirror and expose themselves to what their desires truly say about them. So what happens when someone is able to peer into your desires and force you to face the truth? I believe that’s what Flowers of Evil is trying to give you the answer to. Read more…
This is pretty ridiculous. I’ve resigned myself to looking forward to this show on a weekly basis. Even massive holes in logic, nonsensical character choices or set up or cut & paste construction of this show have kept me from enjoying it. And to make matters worse, I believe the most flawed character in this show is my favorite. The more I understand of the characters, the less I care about understanding the show. Read more…
I think it’s about time that everybody in this show stopped sniveling and whining. If mankind was meant to go out like this, I don’t think they deserved to live in the first place. At some point, the humans have to stand up and at least snap back, let their animal instincts take control and bite once cornered. Though at the start, all I could see were people working on each other’s eulogies and wills. People telling themselves that they’ve had a good life, when they’re kidding themselves. They’ve had a sh*tty life, and it’s gonna end in a sh*tty way. At some point, people unfamiliar with the source material have to wonder why they’re even sticking around for this gory sob fest…
Well, this is the end of your wait folks. The counterattack starts here. Read more…
There’s a time for mourning in all things. My buddy who loves the Office just had to cope with the fact that the show will only live on in syndication now (though I personally thought it should’ve ended years ago). No longer will he be able to do his little guitar strumming bunny-hop to the break room for his lunches to see his favorite show. There will be a mourning period, an unavoidable time of reflection, sadness and coping. Of course he’s a person though, not a TV show. And Karneval has done a great job of not doing much at all, so I’d appreciate it if this show would stop faffing about and get on to the main points of the plot as some point! Read more…
I was wondering when this show was gonna throw a big battle at us again. It really is sticking pretty well to the Gundam formula, too. The real question for Majestic Prince as a show will be whether it can distinguish itself from that formula. Valvrave has already done so in it’s own unique way. Oh yeah, and space sex. Alien space sex. It’s not as gross as it sounds, I promise. Read more…
