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

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.

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.

Space Dandy- That Dandiest of Them All

Space Dandy- That Dandiest of Them All

Saturdays won’t be quite the same without Viva Namida or X-Dimension.

When I heard that Shinichiro Watanabe was going to directing yet another series, I was surprised that it involve the space setting once again. I was expecting something around the lines of his usual works that combined a setting and a musical theme to provide a contrasting world but either way, I was happy he was back into the industry.

I was puzzled though. Space Dandy’s premise seemed like nothing to brag about. It just simply read “A Dandy in space”. With this in mind, I had no idea what to expect. Thankfully enough, I got more than I expected.

Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance Review- Where’s the Blade Dance?

Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance Review- Where’s the Blade Dance?

Torturing myself every season has its fun parts when I get to laugh with my friends on how bad these are.

Every season I need my dose of generally mediocre adaptation of a light novel series that more than often is a harem series. There was a joke going around that Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance would be the series that would kill and succeed the likes of Infinite Stratos and Date A Live. Now, the former can be outdone by nearly any sort of harem but some of you should know I hold DAL in some respectable regard. Seeing as though Blade Dance had 10+ volumes and how Light had been keeping up with it, I generally though it wouldn’t be bad.

I was sort of wrong.
