Ore, Twintail ni Narimasu Episode 1&2- Absolute Insanity

Stupidity done so right that it becomes amazing.

Like I always say, a seasonal harem is something that I choose to watch for mindless entertainment. Sometimes, the experience is good sometimes, not so much. I think whether or not the series taking itself too seriously is one of the major factors when it comes to enjoyment. Thankfully enough, Twintails here knows of its stupidity and puts it into overdrive.

It’s my guilty pleasure of the season and it doesn’t hold back.

I’m afraid this will be a short worded and awkwardly written post while having an overload of pictures so you have been warned.

Hitsugi no Chaika: Avenging Battle Episode 2- Two Parts Down

New developments and objectives are given out.

Before we give in, just a few administrative announcements. Akatsuki no Yona will be reviewed at the end of the season along with Fate. While my nationalism points me to cover it, I don’t trust reverse harem series since Arcana Famiglia. Then again, that was an adaptation.

Like I feared, it seems that our heroes’ journeys finally begins again at the end of this episode. This leaves us with only 8 more episodes to conclude the journey but at least they set up some exposition already for not 2 but 3 groups of characters. So let’s not waste anytime and get into this week’s Chaika.

Shingeki no Bahamut: Genesis Episode 1&2- Holy Hot Damn

Standard

Rev up those fantasy engines, we’re going for a ride.

Shingeki no Bahamut comes from a fairly recent mobile game craze that’s raking in a lot of downloads and money. I’m not a mobile “gamer” but I know of its existence thanks to the large amount of high quality art the game gets. I honestly didn’t even notice the anime “adaptation” airing this season until I saw a few people talking about it. Naturally, I didn’t expect ANYTHING from a series based on a card game.

Bot goddamn, I did not expect this at all.

Music of the Week #159

Standard

This season is pretty great

Twoson

So before I begin, here’s the release schedule for this season

  • Mondays: Bahamut
  • Tuesdays: Akatsuki no Yona
  • Wednesdays: Chaika
  • Thursdays: Twintails
  • Saturday: SAO and FSN

As one can plainly see, it’s a loaded season for me and my educational prospects are also naturally taking my time. I made a bad move and delivered Chaika’s Episode 1 on Monday when its Episode 2 came out today but sucks for me, I’ll have to talk about Episode 2 very soon. With those bullet points, you can expect Bahamut to go up tomorrow while the rest follow through til the weekend so I’ll have plenty to talk about and do.

Other than that, this season is looking pretty great.

The theme for this week is the theme of Twoson, or as it is called in-game as Boy Meets Girl. Twoson is where Ness meets his first permanent companion Paula. Other than the shadowy history behind the city’s conflict with the Happy Happy Cult, Twoson’s theme still rings nice in my ears as the pleasant town in every RPG.

Hitsugi no Chaika: Avenging Battle Episode 1- The Crew Returns

One of my favored party of adventurers are back and Toru already has two great reaction faces.

I lamented the fact that I missed out on covering Hitsugi no Chaika but now I can hopefully redeem myself by covering its second season. From what I’ve heard, the first season skipped over a couple points of details while also adding some original scenes to it. Thankfully the series is more focused on the adventure aspect that it didn’t make too big a difference in enjoying the series.

However the only concern for me here is that Chaika’s light novels are coming to an end in the next few volumes. The author/production company also stated that the anime ending will more or less be an original as well. I only hope for the best but they can only do so much to make me hate this series because I honestly can’t.

Enough about that, let’s get right into it.

The Shortest Fall 2014 Coverage Preview

Just a quick post before the weekend ends to detail what I will most likely be talking about through the season. I will include both what I picked up and tried/dropped already and my reasoning behind it. This will be just a preview so don’t expect too many things to be written.

Chaika of course, will be covered.

These aren’t my recaps of them so expect an actual recap of what I will be watching to be either bundled or posted soon.

Mini Sword Art Online II Episodes 13-14.5: Pointless Recaps

The Phantom Bullet (hah) is finally over.

So they wrap up the arc in an emotional way but then decide to spend the whole of episode 14 just recapping what happened. So delaying the episode recap from me basically becomes moot. So we might as well just talk about the 13th episode.

Let’s not waste anytime, let’s move on to shows I actually want to watch after this.

Expect a number of posts today since I really need to catch up.
