Spring Anime 2016 Week 8

Spring Anime 2016 Week 8

Late but still going through at top speed.

The good stuff get better while the boring stuff remain trite, nothing new going around here and not like I expect the boring stuff to suddenly become great all of a sudden. I also find it pretty annoying at how all the stuff I’m watching doesn’t seem to add up all that much with the “Week of [Insert Number here]” stuff I’m doing thanks to a load of stuff happening this season.

Either way, I’d hate to be behind so let’s get going.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 4- Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 8: Yukako is a hottie

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 4- Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 8: Yukako is a hottie

Praise to you DavidPro, you’ve made one of the scariest girls in the entire series look beautiful as well as made her sound so heavenly. But the scary part is that they actually did all that good stuff on Yukako. Araki’s style of female characters never really struck me all that hard but Yukako was definitely scary as all hell when she freaked out and her scariest levels of facial expressions haven’t surfaced yet.

But yeah, I’m still taken aback at how fast Koichi’s development occurs with how quick the gap between The Lock and the 2nd part of Yukako’s introduction turns out.

Spring Anime 2016 Week 7

Now we have most series hitting the half-way point of the season and I find myself legitimately liking what I’m watching with the sole exception of the two harem series (of course) but even then, there’s something to be gained from watching something you don’t particularly like I feel.

But it was an enjoyable week nonetheless, even those harems series had something going for them this time around. I’ll doubt it will last but it is what it is.

Even DP knew that a straight adaptation of this episode would be too boring. They keep showing off the lone radio tower and Yukako just shows up in the middle of the episode to foreshadow her arc to come next week. But first things first, I’ve just noticed all the transition effects during the part in the Opening where Josuke, Koichi, and Okuyasu pose with their Stands. Josuke has his sick diamond-colored effect, Okuyasu has a hand come up to the screen, and Koichi finally has Echoes show up in the opening so he looks less silly in his pose at the start and it also shows up again near the end. Kind of hilarious since we’ll see that changed really soon.

I almost forgot how much a dick Hazamada was and I still don’t know how to feel about him and Tamami being shortened already since Hazamada calls Koichi a shortie when he’s as short as him in the episode when he was supposed to be “taller”.

Spring Anime 2016 Week 6

Honestly, when you watch something for six weeks but always end up just skipping through it or just not finding the need to watch it, I’ve decided to drop Cerberus.

And hilariously enough, I had enough time to actually be ahead of schedule and actually got some slightly lengthier passages in so good on me for that. Dropping a single series has given me less on my mind because of how much of a drag Cerberus was to digest. Anyways, here’s this week’s recap as we somewhat enter the halfway point of Spring.

I guess it would be understandable not to show Echoes Act 1 in the OP since it was going to be revealed anyway. David Productions had me worried with their 3-episode rendition of the Nijimura’s Arc but thankfully, we don’t need to waste time with the two weakest “fights” in Part 4. This week, we got Tamami Kobayashi and The Lock and next week we similarly got another one-episode fight with Toshizaku Hazemada.

And wow, looking back, Koichi’s development went through a lot faster than I initially thought. Also, as much as I don’t want to complain about the new visuals, I really hope something happens with Koichi’s fat nose.

Spring Anime 2016 Week 5

Finally a week without delays and hiccups, took us quite a bit to get back on track.

The episode count is pretty varied all around due to said delays but we’re nearing the halfway point of the season. I hear that BnHA is actually going to be one of those longer adaptations but I could be wrong. The only thing I intend to continue without a shadow of doubt is Jojo but there’s only one real series that has the risk of getting dropped by the end of this week so we’ll see how that turns out.

But it’s good to be back on track after all this time.
