Majestic Prince ep20: thick like blood

August 25, 2013 1 comment

Well, this is a sobering state of affairs. But I won’t complain. I’ve seen too many shows where significant character deaths have been glossed over, trivialized or not paid the proper respect (ZZ I’m looking at you). With but one member of Team Doberman left, and likely retired, we and the cast are left to reflect on them, for what little screen-time their memories have left. I’m still amazed that Randy got buried with all his porno and Read more…

Attack on Titan ep19: trust in your comrades or your abilities?

August 18, 2013 3 comments

Oh how I hate it when intense action and drama is interrupted, for back story. Though, I’m also a fan of knowledge, and I’ll put up with such a set up if I learn something. Do I actually learn something though? Not quite.

With the female titan bearing down on them with the might of a thousand angry tornadoes, Levi’s squad continues to Read more…

Majestic Prince ep18 & 19: will you live to see your legacy?

August 16, 2013 1 comment

As excited as I was for episode 18, I had no idea the turn the story was going to take going into 19.  The heights of victory are so easily slapped down and forgotten by the next day’s defeat.  Or maybe the more appropriate term would be loss.  Majestic Prince episodes 18 and 19 are two more steps towards this series being one of the more exciting, well-rounded and quality mecha series of the decade.

Attack on Titan ep18: fodder

August 11, 2013 3 comments

So much for the strategy of outrunning and outmaneuvering the titans. With the murderous tornado that is the female titan bearing down on the entire Corps, there’s little time left to think or hope. And what little time is available to some is more of a curse than a respite, as they’re left to wonder of their mortality and they wait for hope or death.

Fresh from barely escaping an assault on the female titan, Reiner, Jean and Armin are left with Read more…

Majestic Prince ep17: a race thru the Earth’s atmosphere!

August 6, 2013 1 comment

It is impossible to contain my hype for this episode!  A slow build up to almost Eva-style tension and drama, with pure mecha goodness and eye candy throughout most every minute of it!

The Wulgaru’s objective has been sniffed out. MJP knows that they’re headed for the Cosmopolitan Academy, but none of that matters if they can’t catch up to the small unit speeding towards the school. And this is where Team Rabbits comes in, while Black-6 is sent to hold the line with the regular forces and Team Doberman, they’ll be sent at top speed to intercept the raid party before they enter the atmosphere.

Attack on Titan ep17: she knows! She knows!

I wrote a long detailed post about this episode, but unfortunately I lost it because I didn’t follow my own rules and save before going off to fix something else. So please forgive the brevity. Read more…

Attack on Titan ep16: “We need to know what we’re dying for.”

July 28, 2013 2 comments

Last episode’s disaster has not gone unnoticed, and active punishment is being sought out. Three-dimensional gear is being inspected across the board, as the active consensus is that hateful trainees have put the titans out of their misery. Armin makes an interesting point. Killing the titans may have brought the assailants personal comfort, but it has set mankind back. A lot of people died capturing and guarding those titans, and now they’ve died for nothing. Sadly, no one is discovered to have misused their equipment, which leads me to believe one of the higher ranked veterans, or some of the soldiers in charge of inspection had a part in the attack… Read more…

Majestic Prince ep15 & 16: to lose oneself to battle, or to one’s self

July 26, 2013 1 comment

It’s time to catch up on one of my favorite shows of 2013!  I can’t believe I fell behind on this, of all shows!  Though I gotta say, if anyone was expecting this show to slow down at all for any more character development, you’re quite wrong!  Any character development that wants to hop onto this moving train is going to have to sprint and jump.  Majestic Prince slows down for no one!

Attack on Titan ep15: brilliantly eccentric or eccentrically brilliant?

July 21, 2013 2 comments

It appears the life of the Recon Corps is not for those of faint of heart, or soundness of mind. I do expect that Eren will find his new home more of an asylum than a castle or barracks. After all, this group of misfits is starting to show itself to be a unit of extreme personalities on par with that of Angel Beats. Read more…
