Half A Million

Half A Million

Well while I was asleep, the hits finally passed 500,000. It took a few years but with the accelerated rate of views I’m betting we can reach 1,000,000 in around a year. By the way, the image is the first thing that came to mind when I hit half a million, the GTA IV trophy Half a Million. So more points for me for the reference.

I say the same words every year on the site’s birthday so I won’t waste time by telling you the progress of this site.

Thank you everyone, I will continue doing this until all of anime literally becomes moeshit.

Cheers

Date A Live II Episode 2- The Real Episode 1

Date A Live II Episode 2- The Real Episode 1

I mentioned before that I really didn’t need to go over a recap/filler episode so I consider this to be the real start of the Date A Live for this season.

What can I say, Date A Live has my enormously biased opinion because I worship the artist Tsunako and her character designs. Its story isn’t anything new but just for the pure reason of liking the way everybody looks is the reason I love it. While it’s a shallow reason, the series has grown on me immensely during the time I had fawning over its art.

So the first season left off pretty nicely at the end of Volume 4 and now we return to Volume 5.

Looking back at this post now, I amaze myself how I can drag out such a simple series with my typing.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 3: Stardust Crusaders Episode 3- LET’S GO!

Standard
Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 3: Stardust Crusaders Episode 3- LET’S GO!

Going exactly as I feared, this episode was an explanatory episode than a fighting one. That being said, this is Jojo, where explanations themselves are outrageous and stylistically silly. With the explanation episode now out of the way, nothing is stopping the hypetrain from plowing through the chapters and beating up enemy Stand users for the next 20+ weeks.

The ending (song) definitely caught A LOT of people off guard. When you stop to think about it though, it was sad of us as a fanbase to not consider this as an option. The only problem I see with it is that Roundabout set up so much atmosphere with its opening chords but this song might have to be altered or changed if we get to the more dramatic/suspenseful parts of Part 3.

Enough talking though, I got more things to post for you guys so let’s get straight into it

Getting on Track

???????????????

So with my thoughts on the Spring season done, all that’s left is just to post the appropriate recaps and talks. I’m thinking of continuing Galaxy Angel now since I’m in the middle of playing through it all again. My friend finally got himself a copy of UMVC3 so we brawl it out when we need to. Interest in Dark Souls 2 picks up again as my completionist self cannot stand by and not 100% and never touch it again.

The hype train has no end in sight for Jojo folks.  With the slow, developed pace we’re going at, I doubt this will be 26 episodes. Then again, rarely do they break protocol for episode airings.

Not much to say folks, I’ve settled into to the season and I hope to think up more stuff for me to talk about other than reviews.

Fly Away by Back-On. A song I just happened upon in a Jojo combo video and found extremely catchy. We’ll be covering some Kenshin themes I have forgotten to add so expect the classic tunes in the next few weeks.

Nisekoi Episode 14- Wife Material Reporting In

Well she’s finally here.

She sure has some initiative for a character who had 20 minutes of screentime. Then again, that’s not really going to matter in the manga because we still got a lot of chapters to go. Hell I think they introduced yet another tease for Raku in form of his dad’s younger girlfriend who plans to live at his house. Cohabitation antics galore. (She’s their new homeroom teacher no less)

It’s not really a spoiler since they just reminded me that the lock is still relevant.

That aside, let’s dig in.

Warning: Loads of Marika ahead

Update on Week 1 of Spring 2014

Update on Week 1 of Spring 2014

Series were getting dropped like flies so it really wasn’t worth the post. Allow me to just very quickly summarize what’s going on for this season and why it’s going to be like it is.

Let’s get the easier stuff out of the way

  1. Jojo is being watched. There was not any doubt over this.
  2. DAL is being watched for the sole reason of the artist behind the series.
  3. Nisekoi’s manga is getting worse with each chapter but the anime is something that I’ve already committed to watching.
  4. Mahouka is being watched so I can poke fun at Light FOREVER.

I’m not going to count the new DAL episode because it was an anime original to give retrospect to what transpired in the first season. No need for me to repeat what they’re explaining.

Now let’s get to the fun part.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 3: Stardust Crusaders Episode 2- EMERALD SPLASH

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 3: Stardust Crusaders Episode 2- EMERALD SPLASH

I will be absolutely frank with all of you.

The hype train for Part 3′s opening was essentially in orbit by the time it aired. Unfortunately, previous hype and expectations set by Bloody Stream made it near impossible it for this opening to have any sort of chance. Not saying that the opening was bad in any case, but I think BS had itself a stylish and groovy tune that set it apart from other openings. This however sounds very common and regular in terms of “Jojo” standards. You know, with Jotaro’s dad being a parody of a jazz musician, I would have expected something jazzy but I guess not.

Not to say my expectations were completely killed, it’s still a balling opening but the only weakness I see that could fix this would be it’s chorus. The visuals and quite literally everything other than the chorus was amazing. Since this is a 2 cour series from what I’m hearing, I think it’s safe to say we’ll get another version of this or a completely new song at the halfway point.

Oh well, I’ll get used to the song and hype over it eventually but let’s get to it

Seikoku no Dragonar, Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei, and Gokukoku no Brynhildr 1st Thoughts

It’s time to tally up the important aspects. Will I be watching these three or dropping quicker than flies. If that makes any sense

I thought that instead of waiting for all these shows to air and inevitably have earlier released shows stack more episodes on top of what I have to do, I think taking them down group by group is an optimal way of doing things. So let’s get into the two shows that aired its first episode on the 5th of April: Seikoku no Dragonar (Dragonar Academy) and Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei (Irregular at the Magic Academy) I’m not going to bother with summarizing the first episodes since if anything, the first 1-3 episodes are for me to see if I really want to see them or not.
