That lazy feeling…

Ever watched a school-life/slice of life type genre of anime before? series like “K-on!”, “Yuru Yuri”, “GJ-bu”, and etc? well judging by the name itself, these types of anime focus of the common life of students and their most common struggles with their current situation. Given that definition, it really hard to follow these type of genre because literally, “nothing happens”. You just get a glimpse of how simple or how funny the events in the series but as the story progresses, you realize that nothing actually happens, or nothing major in some ways. In relation to this, you get this really lazy feeling while watching and every after episode seems like more than 30 minutes and somehow, you don’t wanna watch it anymore. But that’s just me, I don’t know about you guys but right not, I am really bummed right now after watching a few episodes of the series that I mentioned. So to end this post, here is a totally unrelated poster of an anime called “The Sacred Blacksmith”, you might wanna try it.

After being gone…

Woah, so I was gone for some time. I was trying to concentrate on my work and now it seems that I finally got some time off to wind down and relax and blog about anime once again. So this very moment, just watch out during the next few days because I will be again posting my thoughts about the animes that I get to watch.

My usual pastime while trying to do basic computer maintenance.

All new supernatural anime “Strike the Blood” is now available on-line. The first episode was good for me, it wasn’t too much and it wasn’t bad either; but that’s just me. =)

The girl kinda reminds me of Haruhi because of her eyes but to let everyone know, this isn’t Kyoto animation; this is “Silver Link”. Feel free to search for other animes by Silver Link, they’re actually good at it.

In total, the first episode was good although a bit generic but give it a little more time, things might go from normal to awesome.

Alright! at last, I finally watched the long-awaited Kyoukai No Kanata. And as expected from KyoAni, the character features similar profile to their earlier works. It’s like giving a thought that almost all their animes are from the same universe.

Image

This looks like we’re not gonna be seeing the usual male protagonist being a total ass but this time, it’s going to be a female idiot. The anime has some funny points and the seriousness of the atmosphere is very timely; but guys, this is just episode one, we still have a lot of room for adjustment, let’s not hope this doesn’t turn out to be another ‘Guilty Crown’ alright?

Image

As for the opening; it seems rather normal. Nothing exception but not bad either.

Image

Does this character remind you of Mio (K-On!) somehow? Yes, this is one of the curses of KyoAni, it looks like a recycled appearance but faces aside; she has this mysterious aura of being the daughter of someone really important in the series (she did mention it).

Image

And there goes our moeblob. She is later revealed to be a spirit warrior and a member of a clan nearing extinction. She’s the only one left of her kind who can turn her blood into a full-scale weapon (a sword to be more specific). No spoilers here.

Image

Our male protagonist on the other hand is revealed to be half “youma” and half human making him immortal. As to what a “youma” is, I don’t really know, we’ll have to wait for the next episode for further explanation. This is also the reason why moeblob was continuously trying to stab him with her sword. Since he can’t die, she probably thought of him as a good punching bag.

Image

Aside from getting stabbed in the heart for around 8 times this week, the guy seems to show a little affection for moeblob. He then later decides to help her with her house problems.

Image

Moeblob seems to have more that rodent in her new apartment and would require more than pesticides to eliminate.

Image

And there we have it. Moeblob doing high-flying action. In case you have “youma” infestations back in your home, you know already who you need to call. The male protagonist seems useless in this particular scenes although he did made a few warning for moeblob.

Image

I’m not really getting the idea why she was shown during this part (this was during the fight scene at moeblob’s turf). Maybe she knows something about this. Interesting.

Image

Do it moeblob!!! stab it with your bloody sword! hey, I can actually do word puns now.

Image

All in all, it was a good pilot episode. Can’t wait for the next episode. Stay tuned for the next post guys. Tnx.

 

I’m kinda busy right now…

‘Sup guys, it seems that I haven’t been posting anything since last week. It’s just that I got a lot of animes that I need to catch up with, I’ll try to posting this week though.

Alright! Finally! Another epic battle awaits! You could say I have been waiting weeks for this to come. They finally revealed how Armin discovered Annie’s secret and the actual plan to capture her but eventually, it failed. Not only that it failed, Eren was also having troubles transforming into a big ass giant monster himself. It seems that he needs to have a killing intent first before he transforms into a titan which may be a little difficult since Annie was one of his comrades before. But nevertheless, he did overcome it somehow with the help of his old memories and finally gave Annie a good punch in the face before the end.

Image

So Annie already had this idea on what Armin was planning and kinda playing along. Very smart for titan (No offense intended). Eventually the plan failed and our heroes got stuck in the tunnel where they were supposed to trap Annie.

Image

The commander seems very determined to capture the titan, well, let’s see how your plan works this time.

Image

Our friends look like they all believe that Annie is the female titan.

Image

And it is confirmed, Annie turns into the titan and tries to grab the trio inside the tunnel but fortunately for our heroes, she can’t reach any further.

Image

So part of the plan was getting Eren to transform into a titan and have him box with Annie but somehow, he can’t do it. It seems that he needs a concrete motivation for him to transform and simply biting his hand was not the actual process.

Image

Mikasa trying to make Eren hate Annie so that he can transform but it does not seem to work (Just look at those eyes).

Image

Since the persuasion didn’t work, the two didn’t have a choice but leave Eren until he transforms and deal with Annie first, and here we have a few of Mikasa’s acrobatic performance.

Image

Ah, yes. The circus is finally in town.

Image

Annie just can’t handle Mikasa, I mean, literally can’t handle (Get it?).

Image

Touch me again and you’ll see your fingers in the air.

Image

I don’t know if I should pity him or cheer for him, just transform already!

Image

Just some random guy trying to get killed.

Image

Talk about acrobat, they’re doing it horizontally!!!

Image

Going for the back, yes, that’s a good idea.

Image

And Mikasa isn’t giving up.

Image

And it’s a hit!

Image

That weirdo captain manages to capture her somehow.

Image

Yes, threaten her so that she’ll come out. Somehow, I feel really uneasy.

Image

Do you want fries with that?

Image

Oh, were back to Eren, he’s awake somehow. I did miss some important frames like Mikasa getting hit by Annie or something.

Image

There we go, I was in a hurry so I didn’t get the part where she got hit but anyways, I present to you, a weak Mikasa.

Image

Thunderbolt and Lighting, very very frightening deal! (You know what’s next).

Image

She doesn’t seem to notice it because she was admiring the building but someone is actually running towards her.

Image

And BOOM! Yeah baby! I can feel your skinless face on my mini-van sized knuckles!!!

Image

Isn’t he adorable?

Image

Mikasa gains consciousness and looks up at the situation.

Image

Charge!!!

Well, that’d be all for today folks! I had fun watching even though I already knew what’s happening; it’s always an eye candy seeing the best parts of the manga getting animated. I’ll be sure to post about the next episode. Bye.

The World God Only Knows

“Ayumi, your are my First and Last Heroine”

And that was the most memorable line that I can remember from KamiNomi’s latest episode. It might sound a little cliché but if you’ve watched the series all the way from season 1, you’ll get large view of what those lines actually mean. Since this was the 11th episode, I’m guessing that this season is nearing the ending or will this get extended? I hope it does, the manga is still on-going anyways, I’m hoping for a 4th season already.

The last scene was pretty extreme, the little vintage girl finally interfered with our characters (no screen shot today, sorry guys) but luckily we have Nora and Haqua on our side. Also there were bad guys following our Ayumi as well, what’s gonna happen next? Will Katsuragi win Ayumi’s goddess? We’ll find out soon.

 

Til next time guys…
