Music of the Week #174

Back in Schedule

Earthbound

Covering a single series is really relaxing, especially when I’m pretty busy. Jojo is trucking along but you don’t need this post telling you that. If anything, I’m still watching the 4 harem shows of the season and I can that for now, I’m finding Absolute Duo the least horrific. To keep it simple, Testament is similar to DxD but from the light novel images, it’s trying its hardest to push the boundaries of how much sexual content light novels allow. It’s funny how the series does its damn hardest but more on that when the anime reaches its end. Fafnir has the same artist from Seitokai no Ichizon but damn, it looks terrible and once again pulls the tired cliche of “the only male with this ability”. Last but not least is World Break where our MC is average but the main girl just kills it for me.

The only saving grace Absolute Duo has is that it at least has some male character other than the MC that is relevant. The girls aren’t annoying as hell either since there is no token tsundere just yet. But either way, I can’t say I’m not enjoying these trainwrecks. I’ll look forward to scalping them once the season is over.

I’ll be finally concluding the Earthbound music weeks next week so this week will be the last track from the game proper and it is the Cast Credits instead of the actual credits. Something really hits me when I hear remixed tunes of past themes at the very end. That’s all for now folks, I’ll catch you with Jojo on the weekend.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 3: Stardust Crusaders Episode 27- Sweet Oingo and Hella Boingo

I WARNED YOU ABOUT THE STAIRS, BRO

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 3: Stardust Crusaders Episode 25&26- Man’s Best Friend

The Bizarre adventure picks up once again in the final stretch of the Crusader’s foray into Egypt to find DIO.

Before we begin I just HAVE to address that opening and ending. I won’t lie, I was somewhat disappointed at how things weren’t as hype as before as this is really the final stretch of the adventure for the Part 3. I sort of liked Stand Proud at how hype it got after the somewhat awkward chorus but I’m liking the chorus in this one. That being said, the visuals are the best next to Bloody Stream. If anyone’s a manga reader, you’d probably catch everything there’s to know. But just in case

  • The gears on the sand
  • The shadows on the staircase
  • Star Platinum being the “one”
  • Iggy, Pol, and Avdol
  • Kakyoin’s HG’s lines being cut
  • Joseph and the projectile aimed toward his neck
  • Jotaro having a flurry of objects thrown at him
  • Jotaro’s finger twitching
  • DIO’s Stand is seen in a split-second frame after Star Platinum punches the screen

Anyway, let’s get through the first enemy of the renewed adventure.

Change of plans

Earthbound

Jojo will be up by tomorrow and instead of the doing something special for the harems, I ultimately decided that instead of picking them apart each every week would leave little to say at the end of the season. So I’ll just have to bottle up all the laughter at how bad they are for the end of the season and let it all out in one burst.

So simply put, Jojo will be the sole covered anime for this season. I’m still currently trying to make ends meet so I leave you and hope you enjoy the Jojo for this week as every week, we get one step closer to DIO and hopefully Part 4.

This week’s theme is the familiar theme that plays at beginning of the post-game sequence where Ness and crew separate and Ness is given the last task of walking Paula back home. This is “Because I Love You”

(Mini) Ore, Twintail ni Narimasu Review: Quality Assurance

It’s what happened to Date A Live II.

My first experience with Twintails came from stumbling upon it’s high quality art in my usual raid through multiple image boards. When I heard it was getting an anime, I didn’t know what to think of it since I was never the one for genderbend. I will admit though, (and believe it or not, even with my poor coverage) I enjoyed it.

Now the only problem remains within the studio that got this out.

Shingeki no Bahamut: Genesis Review- The Afro, the Pomp, and the Hungry

The wild ride comes to a close.

So ever since I saw Chaika’s Season 1 end, I saw the rise in number of these fantasy shows that finally decided to move away from highschools. Granted, a lot of them were some harems, I still enjoyed the fact we wouldn’t be see any “student council presidents” and the likes for a bit. Hell, considering what I watched this entire season, I don’t think a single highschool series got in this time. Ain’t that just quaint. Strange to think that this series happens to be one of the most entertaining things I watched this season, and probably this year.

So how in the world did a card game do it? Stay awhile, you may learn something.

Back on my feet

Earthbound 5

Bahamut is prepped for tomorrow and Twintails will be next. The new season is already underway and the hilariously enough, only Jojo will be ended up being covered seriously. Why the word “seriously”? Because Durarara is quite literally too smug for me (plus I hate Izaya and I forget what happened at the end of S1) and the rest of the season is all harems. Jojo will be covered through its entirety. The harems however are going to be talked about as well. Not in a regular, recap like sense however. Instead, I’ll be comparing the 4 harem series as a single entity and just talk about how silly they are.

But before that happens, I have to go finish Twintails and other matters before the next few weeks end. Until then, enjoy what’s coming.

This week, we dive into the more disturbing pieces of Earthbound, the final stretch of land before confronting the root of all evil. Here’s Cave of the Past or its alternate title, The Place.
