DonKangolJones’ Images of the Week: December 5th (Big and Black; Long and Hard)

December 5, 2010 1 comment

And by that title I mean it has been a long and hard week of watching anime.  Lots of crying (from the characters in shows, not me), and panting, and beating, and farewells.  Everything I watched and read seemed to be really intense and trying its best, with very few failures.  The only real failure of mine was not watching OreImo.   I just couldn’t do it.  As much as I enjoy the supporting (and in this case I mean that quite literally) characters, Kirino sucks most any enthusiasm I have for the show right out of me.  I just can’t seem to bring myself to sit down and deal with her.  With that out of the way, time to move to the week in Japanese illustrated NERD.

Check-in Station: Katanagatari ep9 (have your fun now…)

September 16, 2010 Leave a comment

Probably the funniest and lightest episode of the series so far.  Though I wouldn’t go so far as to call it fluff.  There’s some substantial material here.  Interestingly Meisai gets brought up twice in conversation between Shichika and Zanki.  It may be Shichika comparing the two somewhat similar characters or perhaps him showing a little regret over slaying her.  More importantly for now, Zanki brings up the thought of Kyotouryuu being a curse.  Something I’m hesitant to dismiss.

#Katanagatari ep8: Mecha vs. Shounen

August 17, 2010 2 comments

As usual, there is plenty to touch on in an episode of this series. First of all, Shichika and Togame have become really flirtatious. Though I question whether my description of it is accurate. Flirting? They seem to be in love, as what I used to think was mere flirting feels more like cuddling and play between lovers. Read more…

#Katanagatari ep6: this show has the best eps w/ the WORST previews! #anime

Seriously, I want to yell at whoever green lit these decisions to show so much material in a preview and strangle them. I don’t care if it is a troll or not. Stop it!

As for the excellent, excellent episode. It feels good to catch onto the major point of a story before they reveal it to you. Points like having the super strong amateur best Kyottoryu, then seeing a body switcher. The great feeling from knowing in the background is this overwhelming, paralyzing presence (feeling was promptly destroyed in the previews). Enjoying the dialogue and bits of gold in it between our persevering couple. Great episode. Even better that the loli was super cute without being annoying.

I’m still worried about this show trolling me though.
