Approximately a month ago, I sparked a conversation with a friend of mine of how tired I was with the “high school” setting situation that’s more or less prevalent in anything that’s airing. While it is a familiar setting and puts aside exposition, I lamented the fact that we don’t have too many shows where it doesn’t have to involve students. I might be cherrypicking but look at series like Dragonar Academy, Akuma no Riddle, and Mahouka. Why does taming dragons, assassinations, and atomic bombs all have to involve a high school setting? Case in point: I wanted something adventurous again. Something around the likes of Slayers. I’m not asking for anything as grand as scale as that but something that involved constantly changing settings and the likes.
My friend replied to me with that a show like that breaking the norms would be liked by the few while shows that continue the ongoing trend of highschool and absolute moe rake in easy cash. Simply put: Why potentially waste good money when we got a completely secure way of getting the most out of an investment?
One the less memorable fights in my opinion becomes a pretty entertaining episode.
I was genuinely surprised at they handled this, I had no idea the fight was this fun back when I read Part 3. Some people still consider it a lesser fight but nonetheless, it’s exciting to see it in animated form. I really need to stop reviewing the episode before I even talk about it. We’re around 2-4 Stands away from reaching the halfway point of the series. Did you think getting to Eygpt was tough? Wait til you all see the Egyptian God Stand users.
So here I thought Black Bullet would end but apparently not. We got one more week so the series review comes next time.
Although the episode was obviously rushed, I guess we needed these few minutes we had to hastily iron a few things out before the final, catastrophic slam. It’s like the scene right after Kagetane was defeated back in Episode 3 or 4, shit goes full throttle and pummels us with more information and exposition.
I’ll be glad it’s over.
Bad writing ahead, you can tell that I really didn’t want to talk about this episode in particular.
Was in California this weekend, sorry for the delay.
Not as exciting or emotional as the fight beforehand but Joseph still shows that he still has the mindset. I mean, for a guy who delayed death being dealt from an immortal being could probably deal with something like the Empress on his arm. Unfortunately, his Stand is still not suited for hard-combat so we won’t see too much Joseph exclusive episodes for a while.
That being said, next week’s fight isn’t so amazing either. However, it still has a very memorable line so I guess I’ll look foward to that. Also, good news for me and other Jojo fans as David Productions has announced today that Part 3 will be airing all year long as 4 cours and will cover every fight. It’s official so nothing for me to fear anymore.
Let’s get on with this though, we’ll talk about the good stuff when we get to it.
Allow me to explain why I’m a bit late on things. I went for a trip down to California for educational and family reasons on Saturday. The reasons however aren’t that important since it was small enough to warrant only 2 days. Jojo is written up and only needs pictures, Black Bullet is 13 episodes long so it has one more week left. This leaves us with the Hitsugi no Chaika review coming up. So 3 things to look out for.
Other than that, not much else going on. Actually, I got myself a 3DS on my trip to California so that’s an amazing thing. What’s even better is that I got it for free and it is fully functional. Only thing holding the system back is that I have no games for it and I’m going to lend it to a friend of mine for his own trip to Delaware. For some reason or another, he owns both X and Y and wants to transfer his data to the other so in a week, I’ll finally get to play the 6th Generation. Not that it’s that exciting since I only have four 6th gen pokemon I like.
That’s enough of that though.
Here’s Silver Morning from the ever glorious soundtrack of Champloo.
I was able to pick up a copy of MGRR last Friday and I finished it on Saturday afternoon. Other than being enslaved to the musical onslaught of Maniac Agenda for the past few days, the events in the game more or less, unknowingly, prepared me for this episode. Kidnapping around a hundred kids, harvesting and selling their organs while putting their brains through virtual reality slaughtering contests is, in my mind, a bit more gruesome than a handful of kids getting killed by a bomb.
That may not ring with too many of you but a game about chopping people into little pieces really “steeled” me up for some atrocities. Thanks Senator Armstrong.
Anyways, I hope you didn’t get too attached to the loli’s in Rentaro and Kisara’s school.
So DAL and Nisekoi are over which leaves us Black Bullet with one episode left (after I do the double recap) while we’re not even halfway done with Stardust Crusaders. Hitsugi no Chaika is also ends next week and that will be talked about as well. It gets a second season for the Fall and you can best believe I’m going to cover that for sure. I haven’t fully looked into the Summer season but the shows I know I’m watching are:
Space Dandy: Obvious reasons
Kantai Collection: Seasonal fanservice
Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance: LN series that Light likes
Only now do I realize I’m watching absolute fanservice. I hope that I find something because Summer seasons have, in my recent memory, been pretty boring. Thank god for Jojo.
Well that’s all for now folks, let’s get you the music.
This is the 4th ending of Samurai Champloo during the baseball episode. Here’s Fly by Tsutchie
