God Eater 06 – Stay True Aug30

God Eater 06 – Stay True

Synopsis Lenka, Alisa, Kota and Sakuya are out on a mission to hunt two large-type Aragami known as Vajra when they encounter an unusual black Vajra that devours even its own species. This Vajra is ridiculously powerful and the 1st Unit ends up scattered. Lenka takes Alisa who has lost consciousness and escapes into an abandoned building. His God Arc is fractured and Lenka’s confidence takes a serious blow. Alisa, who also loses her God Arc in the fray, is overcome with terror as childhood memories of her parents being killed by the black Vajra come flooding back. But it’s not over for the battered and wounded duo as a pack of Ogretails threateningly advance toward them in the abandoned building where they sought refuge. Source: Daisuki.net Impressions After two damn long weeks, We finally got a new episode of God Eater.  There was a ton of character development here, particularly focused on Alisa. That image of an strong and cool Alisa was basically shattered in this episode. She is vulnerable due to a trauma She got from her childhood days. Thanks to flashbacks, We see how She witnessed the death of her parents…and it was gruesome! I don´t have enough words to describe it. With that scene in mind, I am not surprised why Alisa suffers PSTD. Lenka did a great job protecting Alisa, even without his God Arc AND despite his insane wounds. I wonder how He still alive?? We will see how their relationship evolves now. I am curious. Talking about Lenka and his God Arc, We learn something new about the God Arcs in this episode. Lenka´s God Arc is basically “dead” now. Alisa confirmed it.  I wonder what is going to happen now with his God Arc. At the end, Alisa managed to get her God Arc, but the relief was too short. Without her pills, Alisa gets PSTD and her behavior is erratic. Surrounded by the Aragami, She was just still and crying. Lenka did his best to fight without his God Arc. Finally, He gave up and was ready to die, protecting Alisa. It was like giving all hope. Luckily, Lindow got there in time and save their lives. He asked Lenka if He really gave up at this point. I really expect an interesting development for Lindow and Lenka for the next couple of episodes. If you pay close attention to the opening, you see Lenka being the leader of this group and Lindow getting out of the picture. Passing the baton? We will see. A solid episode this week. My only concern is the long wait that lies ahead. I am not sure if We will have to wait TWO more weeks for another episode or if Ufotable will show mercy this time. I hope it is the latter for crying out loud.     On a funny note, I wonder about Lenka doing CPR to Alisa…How that feels, huh?   Are you excited about God Eater The Anime? Yeah! Definitely! Nah!

GATE 09 – The Hakone Mountain Night Battle Aug28

GATE 09 – The Hakone Mountain Night Battle

Time for another review on Gate: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri! This episode was amusing and confusing at the same time. I really enjoyed every scene where the girls appeared. I was bored with all the scenes where the soldiers appeared. That´s the order of things for this episode. Also, I could bet this episode will increase the votes for Rory Mercury. She was really, really hot here! Gawd!!! I was speechless for the last scene. We got a some tidbits of information about Itami´s exwife. She is such a weirdo! I was really curious about the reasons why They divorced. The reason is so confusing as their relationship. Their relationship was not exactly based on love but on social status and the economy. It is so sad. I noticed that some girls are getting real close with Itami.  The mage and Rory Mercury especially. Itami might get a chance with some girl from another world. I am interested on that. Lucky Bastard! There were some particularly funny moments here. The scenes where Pina and her bodyguard were enjoying themselves with all the goodies that this world offers were hilarious to see.  Loved all those “Princess, this is another world” moments! Funny indeed. We also got the unavoidable hot spring segment of this series. You know, girls wearing towels and having a good time in the onsen. The guys on another place, yada, yada, etc. Not that I am complaining about that. Curiously, there were no men peeking around and NO fanservice almost at all. Lame! The only thing that confused me were all the politics and the battle around the onsen. I am not even sure why there was a fight in the first place. I was probably too distracted looking at the girls and not the main plot! And finally…RORY MERCURY! OMG! She is just too damn hot…and I am not talking about the onsen.  Damn, that´s a cruel cliffhanger!  Next episode promises a lot of drama and probably sad moments with despair. Thank God We got this episode.   Who is your favorite girl from Gate: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri!

Unboxing Evangelion Blu-Ray! Aug28

Unboxing Evangelion Blu-Ray!

  Evangelion Blu-Ray was released on August 26, 2015 and We got a first look at the beautiful, expensive set! Youtube users, たけちゃんの実況 and TheDrmcvey released a video on the unboxing. All the juicy details on whats inside, you can check it out below.   Japanese “Unboxing” English “Unboxing”   The box itself looks awesome. After the release, someone in youtube also show us the comparison between the SD and the HD. It looks beautiful. I still have to watch the series so I can do a proper review for this “new” release.     Impressions I have been an Evangelion fan for years and I must say that this “should” be the ultimate set ever…That is until a 4K version gets released eventually. They always try to milk this at any cost and this series sure is costly. The Evangelion set costs around US$300.00 bucks! If you are interested about how it looks like? It seems They did a good job with the transfer. I read somewhere that They scanned every cel for the Blu Rays. Have to confirm it. However, if you are looking for something different besides the quality, well…Nothing changed in that matter. It is the same old Evangelion series. Not even in widescreen. No English Subtitles! But, after all, it is Evangelion and I am sure most hard core fans will get this. Guess We must have to wait for a subbed release. I just hope They release that version with that nice and beaufiful box!

GATE 08 – A day in Japan Aug21

GATE 08 – A day in Japan

  This is your typical “East meet West” kind of thing. Welcome again to this review of Gate: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri! This time, everything happens at the other side of the Gate. The JSDF, Pina and the girls visits Japan and We got plenty of new information regarding our favorite characters, particularly their ages. But let´s talk about Itami. We got a lot of information, thanks to one agent from Intel HQ.Now, We discover Itami is not only a ranger..He is a lot more. I would not be surprised if He is also Agent from MI6 or something…jeez. I really liked the scenes where those girls are amazed about, well, everything in Japan. The Japanese felt the same thing about this colorful characters, especially the fact that one girl is an elf. Rory Mercury also had a great time, except in the Subway. That was weird. The entire scene in the “Japanese Senate” was interesting enough. I usually get bored with this kind of thing, but this time, it was different. Rory Mercury could be a good lawyer in Japan. The whole thing was hilarious. Finally, We got a surprising fact regarding Itami. He has an ex-wife! And everyone was surprised about that.  At the end, We got a good episode, not the best, but at least, it was entertaining.  I just hope They don´t spend too much time in Japan. We already have plenty of anime series in that location. At least, the next episode promises an “onsen” episode. I am curious.

GATE 07 – Maid Diplomacy Aug17

GATE 07 – Maid Diplomacy

  Well, I must say this episode clearly shows how Maid Diplomacy works. And it really works for Itami. After all, He is an otaku…and a ranger! I mean, seriously?! Whenever He is not killing people, He watches anime and loves Maids. Welcome to the strange world of Gate: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri! After the confusing incident last week, Itami was treated like a king with some maids at his side. Guess Pina is worried about diplomatic incidents. Those are cute maids, if you asks Me. Pina even sent one of her loyal guards to use her body as an apology. Final result was hilarious for Me and painful for Itami. At the end, Itami has to report to the National Diet. Pina being worried about this incident, decides to go with Itami and clear up all this confusing incident and avoid a war.  The elf, the mage and Lolita are going too. This episode was good. I enjoyed those silly, subtle jokes. For example, that part where Lelei explains Pina about the guns. Soldiers are not mages. They use Guns. Soldiers enchant a cylindrical container with explosion magic! I mean, Really??!! Another thing I like is Itami treatment by some girls. I am not talking about the maids. I am talking about the fact that some girls treat Itami like a punching bag. And the silliest thing is that everytime, He screams in a differently. I am not sure about what lies ahead next week. Everyone is going back to Japan. I can imagine Japanese people will think this girls are cosplaying and of course, Otaku will love them. Hopefully, I will like next episode. We will see.

God Eater 05 – Bloody Mess Aug17

God Eater 05 – Bloody Mess

  Oh God, I am not even sure how to start this post. It is probably the best so far for the series and the sad thing is that this kind of animation, music, everything is killing Ufotable as We have to wait TWO more weeks for the next episode. Good Lord. Everything in this episode is just amazing in so many levels.  There were so many revelations here and We will have to wait how things evolve…and unfortunately, in a SLOWLY way! My impressions for this episode follows (Spoilers included) We know now that They need lots and I mean, LOTS AND LOTS of cores to build Aegis and this project is just HUGE, like the Aragami They faced in this episode. All God Eaters must fight everyday so They can complete the project. That could take years! Soma is a JERK! Sakura is COOL. Loved that scene where She was comforting Kota. The God Eaters faced their worst enemy up to this date. I know They need lots of cores but I think the first mistake sealed their fate. This mission has lots of mistakes that led to this. First one, let the rookies face larger Aragami i.e. Vajra. This was not the moment and still, They just went by. The BEAST appeared. A Black Vajra. It was the first time Sakuya, the most experienced God Eater in the group met this beast. They were almost ready to retreat and They had a chance. Unfortunately, this Black Vajra was an “old friend” of Alisa. She was blinded by rage and clouded her mind. Second big mistake and EVERYONE paid dearly this. I really wonder how Lenka was able to walk with the wounds. And He even was able to carry Alisa! I mean, WTF?! Lenka is surprisingly strong. Lenka lost his God Arc. Bad thing. Good thing if They give him a cooler one. Another thing was Alisa´s underboobs. We never saw her thingies. Even when battling the beast, We never got a chance to see those. LOL! I also wonder what would have happen if Lindow and Soma were actually there. Seriously, this mission was NOT for the rookies. The music and the animation was seriously good. LOTS of people died. I was impressed by this unfortunately moment. You can feel the pain and God, there was LOTS and LOTS of blood. Ufotable just did their stuff with no brakes at all. I think the animators and voice actor did a good job with Lenka. There was not an overreaction or TOO dramatic attitude like THAT character from Attack on Titan. I like that. At the end, We got a flashback on the three scientists that started it all. I must admit that I am not attracted to this, but guess I have to pay close attention to this as it gives clues on what happened before this whole Aragami thing. Well, this is basically my impressions. This episode was great. But, the problem lies on the fact that We have to wait two weeks for each episode. It is funny that Ufotable gave this episode, two titles for each half…Part A and Part B (An eye for an eye and All in vain). Gawd, give us at least 45 minutes for each episode instead of 24! Silly! Are you excited about God Eater The Anime? Yeah! Definitely! Nah! Will Skip it!
