Spring Anime 2016 Week 3

Fully onboard the seasonal train.

Everything so far has been entertaining on their own right, well except Hundred because that’s just an obligation to watch for me to continuously rag on about battle harem series. Everything else however was pretty nice. The biggest note however goes to the earthquake that occurred in Japan last week which led to a number of series being delayed, which unfortunately included Sakomoto.

But oh well, it’ll continue the following week so let’s not waste any time and get to this week’s stuff.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 4- Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 3: The Nijimura Brothers

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 4- Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 3: The Nijimura Brothers

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

The season is fully underway

BMB64

So I kind of just realized I was still using Dark Souls II’s pictures. I’ve changed it to the appropriate Bomberman 64 OST cover for the relevant ones. With that mishap out of the way, the season is fully underway and I’m actually looking forward to a lot of things from it. Part 4 is still my most looked forward too but I’d be lying if I said that was the only thing I wanted new episodes of every week.

Anyways, this is late enough already so let’s get right to it. This week’s theme is Masker, the theme that plays in the boss fights in each stage’s 2nd quadrant where you are personally pitted against Altair’s henchmen. Whereas in Green Garden you faced Sirius who tested your ability, starting from Blue Resort, Red Mountain, and White Glacier will pit you against Artemis, Orion, and Regulus. In Artemis’ case, she’s the easiest but tough to get to with her ranged ability that scatters fire everywhere.

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

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.

Hit the overdrive

BMB64

The Spring season is here and I’ve got around 5-6 shows already on my queue. Jojo will be the one that will get episodic updates individually while the rest will get their recaps every weekend as well. I’ve only got one more left to go so I’ll stop talking to get right down to work so I can talk about some newer stuff.

And what better time to not get distracted so I could also talk about this week’s track. This is Blue Resort, the theme of the 2nd World of the game that takes place in a nice bay-like area. While Green Gardens is remembered fondly in my memories, Blue Resort is my single most adored track in this game’s library. When I first re-heard it during the earlier days of Youtube, I was happy to hear its relaxing tunes. Somehow, I completely forgot about the 2nd half of the song with its beautiful crescendo of tunes. I can’t tell you how much I love this song and how much I miss Bomberman but I have to share the love a little more equally for the rest so here you go, one of my most nostalgia inducing tracks from the N64 era.
