Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 4- Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 4: Bad Company

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 4- Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 4: Bad Company

One of the many highly anticipated fights of Part 4 comes to a close.

I’ve mentioned it before but Part 3 only had a few handful of fights that I looked forward to other than the always climatic finale that each part makes sure you never forget. Part 4 and the inevitable Parts 5 and 6 to come all have some amazing fights headed our way. But truth be told, with Bad Company over, it’s going to take a while before the next anticipated “arc” comes around. I’ll still enjoy what we get in between but I have to mention how much time they’re taking with the early portions. The Nijimura Brother’s fights are over so we get some exposition next week while we’ll probably start Koichi’s. That makes me think if they’re going to make cut things in half or not but I guess we’ll find out next week.

You have no idea how severely I’m holding back to flood this post with screencaps.

Move aside Kuwabara, the yankee highschool best friend character is finally animated.

I’m actually surprised at how much “plot” they’re trying to get across before we fully dive into the slice of life aspect of the series. I was hoping to see more Keicho and Bad Company but I guess that’ll get its fully episode next week. News also reach me that the series will have 13 Bluray volumes with 3 episodes each, meaning 39 episodes. I don’t think the entire series will be able to fit in that frame, not unless another “season” is added to it but at the rate of which we’re going, I guess I can sort of see it.

Anyway, let’s just enjoy Okuyasu

Spring Anime 2016 Week 1-2

Spring Anime 2016 Week 1-2

Spring is definitely a savior with it formally ushering in new year content aside from the overlapping residuals left from the Winter Season. Even I’m surprised to find myself watching this amount of shows, but I don’t think that will last all that much since some are actually teetering on the edge of being watched or dropped but we’re still a one or two more weeks away from the classic 3 episode rule but after last season, I’m feeling pretty generous.

So let’s not waste time, let’s get down to what I’m watching this season.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 4- Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 1-2: Fridays are Great Again

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 4- Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 1-2: Fridays are Great Again

I’m a week late but the opening is finally here this week, Jojo Fridays are back and now features the most happy sounding song for the series.

Unlike Part 3, I was looking forward to Part 4’s animation for quite some time and I can’t tell you how happy I was to see it come to light. While I had a handful of fights I looked forward to in Part 3, Part 4 and onwards have entire lists with fantastic fights and with Episode 2 already done, it only gets better from here.

But what I need to feel to clarify for anime-only viewers is the nature of Jojo’s progression now. Part 4 is considered a “Slice of Life” section of Jojo now and the new opening completely reflects its somewhat everyday-occurrence style pattern of meeting other people in town.

Dagashi Kashi- 23 Minute Commercials

Dagashi Kashi- 23 Minute Commercials

A small review for a small series

I’ve seen a lot of buzz regarding Dagashi Kashi one or two seasons before it aired when I saw frequently saw discussions about it during new chapters. People also made some huge buzz around Hotaru as well, with a lot of art going around. When I decided to Google it up, the premise interested me and I expected the anime with slight expectations.

Where they met at all? The answer to that should be obvious if anyone listened to me for the past few weeks but let’s get some detail in.

Winter Anime 2016 Week 11

ScWe’re reaching the end of the season and you know what that means, Series Reviews. If you were around last seasons, I revamped the process into something a bit more presentable so I’m actually looking forward to talking about them. As much as I would love to sink my teeth into tearing apart Bahamut, that ends next week.

With that in mind, Bahamut’s episode this week will be skipped in lieu of the rest of the series reviews that are going to be worked on instead of the weekly recaps. See you guys then.

Stuff is getting decent, I guess. It’s literally just Bahamut that isn’t completely annoying me right now but that should be a given. Hell it’s doing so bad right now that I barely need to take any screencaps of it.

But hey, something I was looking forward to finally happened and it was an absolute blast to watch.
