Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 3: Stardust Crusaders Episode 20- Sweet Merciful Kakyoin

Kakyoin gets back at the freak of a baby in the best way possible. Thank you David Productions for not cutting that out.

4 Episodes left until we get to Egypt and experience a break until Winter. Knowing how this plays out, looks like the following Stand fights will both be two-parters. Other than that, I give major props to this episode since I really felt the desperation in Kakyoin’s attempts to convince everybody that the Mannish Boy was the stand user. The manga did well but the anime really nailed Kakyoin being singled out from the crew.

Oh sweet vengeance.

Galaxy Angel II- Zettai Ryoiki No Tobira: A New Dawn

Two Summers ago, I sat in glee while I downloaded and installed the first trilogy of the Galaxy Angel series. While I sheepishly admit I did not do a good job at conveying and introducing them to any readers who might have been interested, I’m prepared to give my full thoughts and a half-decade late talk on the second series. For the past month, I have been sitting in my scorching room playing the series day in and out after work and I honestly never felt such an exhilaration of playing a set of games before in my life.

Why was I so excited to play the games? Other than wanting to see and experience more of a series I loved, my old PC wasn’t able to handle the PS2 emulation and now with a new laptop, it is now possible for me to play without too many audio and video hiccups.

Enough of that, let’s talk about a series I’ve been wanting to play for quite a while. This is Galaxy Angel II with the first game being Zettai Ryoiki no Tobira (roughly translated to “Door to the Absolute Territory”)

It’s time for a near-full analysis on the game since I know you won’t play it.

Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance Episode 5- Time for nothing

What’s the point of introducing a character who actually has some (albeit, overdone) connection to the main character in the past and not making her the focus of this episode? I mean I understand getting into some more character traits but still, I wanted some more of new girl.

Anyways, as I mentioned, a new girl joins the harem but we only see her at the beginning and end.

The Hunt

samurai-champloo-characters

I’ve got Blade Dance ready to go and a Gametalk (surprise) prepped up as well. Other than that, the weekend fiasco shall return as regularly scheduled. I’m sort of in the “hunting” mood as I’ve learned Galaxy Angel’s 3rd game’s PS2 version has Extra CG for everybody so I’m on the prowl to hunt them down. I’m also on the lookout for GA’s artbooks while I’m also getting two figures. The life of a  collector can only get more disastrous.

Other than that, work has ended so like I said last week, I’m trying to get ahead of schedule before classes hinder my progress.

So I’ll leave you with this while I go hunt and type some more stuff for you all. Sanctuary ship from Impression

Space Dandy 2 Episode 6- Cloudy with a chance of development

Character development and some amounts of foreshadowing?

In MY Space Dandy?

Surprising enough right? While it is the usual episode of Dandy we got some character we’ve never seen before while getting some other connections that are new to the series. Corresponding with the Opening of the series that featured Honey and Scarlet, we finally see them be a bit more significant than before.

Let’s down to it

Sword Art Online II Episode 6- AND IT WILL COME, LIKE A FLOOD OF PAIN

Kirito lets loose after experiencing some player killing flashbacks back from SAO. If they actually featured those kinds of fights, I wouldn’t have hated it so much. More props to you SAO, you’re actually improving yourself but unless Asuna dies, nothing shall change.

In the end however, Kirito unintentionally gets the girl while being invincible as ever. Some things truly never do change

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 3: Stardust Crusaders Episode 19- Stands on a Plane

We arrive at one of the more anticipated fights in the whole of Part 3.

My predictions for the whole Sun and Death 13 fights came down to this. Instead of getting an entire episode with the Sun like we did, I expected the Sun to last for half an episode while we got introduced to Mannish Boy and Death 13 or just ended with getting the baby and boarding the plane. Continuity problems aside as the episodes show (they were both paced near perfectly), I did not expect the Sun to get an entire episode.

So that aside, we’ve only got a few more weeks until we enter Egypt and the series going on break. While I’m sad we won’t get Jojo for another season, Fall is pretty stacked so I guess we can deal with it.
