Alice to Zouroku – EP03

Pasu! I’m not going to talk about Alice to Zouroku on YT but I’ll blog about it.. probably. But for now let’s get into it. Sana was brought to Zouroku’s house at the end of episode 1 and in episode 2 she meets Sanae, Zouroku’s granddaughter. And now in episode 3 she was caught by that research facility guys.

We got some more backstory for Minnie C who works for those guys. Her only desire is to meet her husband again, but this is not that easy because he is dead. The rare point here is that she and her husband were soldiers from the US and her husband died in Iraq. We don’t hear this kind of things that often.

Minnie C’s character is kinda creepy but I would not be surprised if she’d switch side once she remembers how kind her husband was. Why? Well, right now, she’s not that kind woman.

And on top of that.. there is something that bugs me about that research facility.. and the guy „in charge“.. I don’t know what exactly it is.. but it drives me crazy.

Shuumatsu Nani Shitemasu ka? Isogashii desu ka? Sukutte Moratte Ii desu ka?

Oh my god. The first episode of SukaSuka (full name in the title) was so beautiful! The pacing was so good, the atmosphere and the emotions were spot on. Willem is just like in the novels, a guy with no real reason to live on who is just going with the flow. And Kutori is trying to get some good memories so she can leave without regret.

Their future will bring happiness and sadness, for both of them. I am really curious to see how they will adapt Willem’s „breakdown“ in from volume 2 of the original novels. It is so far my favorite anime series of the spring season. And I really love the novels. They are so beautiful, melancholic and delicate. It feels like the storie will vanish if you are not careful.

Whew!

Pasu! The spring season is still at the beginning, not every new show started yet and most of the shows I tried are good enough to not drop it! The only ones I’m probably not going to continue will be Gin no Guardian and Warau Salesman New.

To be honest.. it’s rare to see a show that comes by and leaves basically no impression.. neither bad nor good.. it’s like I was watching something and it was totally neutral.

Warau Salesman New on the other hand is using the 80s art style and is kinda following an episodic format.. not good enough to keep going with it. And the art style is not even the problem.

Looking forward to see more new shows of this season! And reading entertaining posts about Amazon’s Anime Strike lol

My love hate relationship with Seo’s works

Pasu! I’ve finished Fuuka and Kuzu no Honkai. And I want to talk once again about Fuuka and Seo in general. I have a love hate relationship with his works.. There are a lot of things that are pissing me off, things I want to complain about and yet I can’t help but to enjoy and like it.. why? I don’t know.

Fuuka 217.jpg

I’m serious, I don’t know why I like his works.. be it Suzuka, Kimi no Iru Machi, Half & Half or Fuuka.. I don’t know. The melodrama in itself has a lot of things to complain about.. but it still works out for me. WHY?! He can’t be that kind of genius, right?

Anyways, I’ll start reading the manga of Fuuka since the anime went full original story in the end. 😀 #Seo’strolltrain

Catching up with Fuuka: Episode 2-3/12

Alright! I started with my project of catching up with Fuuka. I’ve watched episode 1 when it aired but now I have 11 episodes to watch and to enjoy, … probably. We got some fanservice and no totally pointless drama.. but since it’s by Seo, there will be drama.. but I can enjoy his kind of drama more than from a lot of other creators.

It’s quite funny how often I get the „just like her mother“ from Fuuka.. man, I really enjoyed Suzuka back in the days.. and I really like the idea that this one is a „sequel“.. or at least a new story that is somewhat related to the other one. Will it be the Seoverse? 😀

Called it.. but hey, I think that Koyuki is a lot more likeable than Masamune’s Nopan-girl. I’ve heard that this one was going full original.. and here I’m asking why?! D:

The hype for „Shuumatsu Nani Shitemasu ka? Isogashii desu ka? Sukutte Moratte Ii desu ka?“

Pasu! We finally got the first real PV for the anime series „Shuumatsu Nani Shitemasu ka? Isogashii desu ka? Sukutte Moratte Ii desu ka?“ based on the light novel with the same name. And I can say for sure, that I am really excited. The PV looks so good and the song is just a perfect fit for it.

As a light novel reader who read 2 of the 3 (as of this writing) translated volumes, I can also say that this will be a great story. The only way to mess it up would be using a bad pacing. Aside that, I can totally see this show becoming my favorite of the spring season of 2017.

A lot of sweet drama, despair and a really nice depiction of depression.

Random stuff

Pasu! Let’s talk about some random stuff. *shrugs*

First: I’ve finished volume 4 of Kazuma Kamachi’s Mitou Shoukan://Blood Sign which was seriously great. I really enjoyed how he threw the protagonist into despair at the end of the volume. It was said from the first volume that the White Queen (picture below) is the strongest being and that the protagonist caused half of the world’s chaos. But in volume 4 it was also said that he is the strongest along side the White Queen. I’m really excited to see more of it. And hey, J.C. Staff.. give us already an anime adaptation for Blood Sign!

Second: I’ll probably record a video (read as: I’ll talk while I’m recording my desktop activity) for the upcoming anime season! There are a lot of titles I’ll pick up!

Third: Neko from Masamune-kun no Revenge annoys me but she’s „ok“ when it comes to comedy scenes.

Fourth: HOLY MOTHER! That Dies Irae PV looooks gooooooooood.

 

When a new character annoys the hell out of you…

Pasu! I’m currently catching up with Masamune-kun no Revenge.. and a new character was introduced.. and she annoys me so much. Her entire character makes me angry. And I can’t even say if this is because of her character in the story or if it is just really lame and bad writing.. I can’treally tell..

And yes, I’m talking about Neko aka Nopan-girl. Her only good screentime was the nopan-scene in the classroom.. aside that… she makes me just angry.

I really enjoyed the show at the beginning but since she showed up I’m more and more irritated.. even the comedy moments are not helping that much. I want to cry. Literally.

And what confuses me even more is the fact that I read a lot of negative comments about Fuuka or Seo’s stuff in general when it comes to melodrama and yet I don’t see a lot of negative comments about her.. is it just my taste / opinion that is kinda off or is it everyone else?

Fun fact: I tend to enjoy Seo’s stuff. Suzuka was nice and Kimi no Iru Machi was quite enjoyable too! (At least I have to be in the mood for that kind of stuff)

Trying too hard…, huh?

Pasu! After a great episode of Demi-chan and a nice cup of coffee, it’s time to write a bit about it. This episode had some drama in it, but not some 0815 melo-drama but in fact, relatable and down to earth drama.

The vice-principal talked with Takahashi about how he was trying too hard and that it is also not the best thing. Basically, it was about that the demis are relying „too much“ on him and that they should figure out how to solve problems.

Demi-chan wa Kataritai 421.jpg

It’s not that the vice-principal is wrong at all… in fact, he changed his mind when he saw the other students interacting with the demis and how it would be bad to complain about a teacher who inspires other students. And I totally agree.

The video that the girls made was also cute. Sakki was quite troubled, huh? I hope, I really hope that we’d get the Takahashi x Sakki ending.. *nods nods*

 

Now wonder Satania is like this…

Hey there, it’s Monday (okey, it’s Tuesday morning – 01:57) and this means it is time for a new episode of Gabriel DropOut. And it was hilarious! I’m seriously afraid to meed Raphi’s and Gab’s family.. the servant of Raphi was strange enough to change a character for the rest of the life.

Satania’s parents are both delusional about their great demonic lineage. And their secret elixir turns out to be not an elixir.. but baked stuff.. Yep, they have a bakery. The seemingly normal son is screwed in its own right. D:

Vigne’s parents are nice and lovely. She’s totally like them. Chappy-chan is cute.. but huge!

And the principal reminds me of the KFC guy.. *sparkles*
