I’m still sort of missing in action. Enjoy this in the meanwhile
I didn’t enjoy KLK like many people, however this OST is pure gold. Depending on the budget, I may or may not purchase it. College life, screwing your wallet since… ever?
No, no. The series hasn’t been dropped in Japan. I’m just gonna stop talking about it because so far Kill la Kill doesn’t really…. interest me. I’ve lost all interest in it as a series.
It’s a fact that KlK had awesome fighting scenes, mindless fun,
lack of fanservice. However the story itself and what it’s trying to convey to us seems really lacking. I did like today’s episode of it (Episode 7). However, as a watcher of the previous episodes my face expression was mostly “meh….”.
I’m just not… that into it anymore. I’ll keep watching it, I just won’t bother doing impressions anymore since it doesn’t inspire me to talk about it.
Bah, I called it update 01 until I find a decent name for posts like these. I’ve been late on my impressions since I’m taking my sweet time in studying and doing even more nerdy stuff.
So, it was like… I was guessing for a while now. It seems there’s been a lot “turmoil” of the direction KnK is going to head. I think KnK itself is going to end up in a cliffhanger, that’s honestly what I believe. I don’t think the show has gone from “srs business” to “lel idols”.
So in episode 05 we saw them strengthening their relationship, not as warriors but as becoming friends. I think episode 06 brims with that relationship as silly yet awesome as it look, if we compare the previous episodes, we could see Hiromi and Mitsuki not getting involved and Mirai would be trying to devise on ways to kill it along with Akihito. That is, if episode 05 never happened.
Is it a filler episode? probably. I don’t really care that much. It was awesome. Plot wise? Well, episode 7 is pretty close so I wouldn’t give up on having an interesting story. I don’t mind the direction they are taking. But, I did want to see an apologetic Mirai. Why? because she stabbed Akihito countless of times fully knowing that it hurted him a lot.
Parts like that are missing on the series. They put Mirai as a bashful and clumsy girl, however things like the stabbing should have been prioritized after Akihito’s transformation.
Next episode seems to be about Mirai’s past. So I think we’ll be back on the story.
Anyways, I’ll be writing about this when I get the time
Log Horizon 06
It was okay. I still don’t like Shiroe that much. I’d rather have Nyanta taking the steps to create the guild. However, Shiroe is the protagonist. Personally, I don’t like him that much mostly because of his personality and indecisiveness.
Akatsuki is mine.
Outbreak Company 06
Gardius is my wa……..ifu? Well, it was an episode full of references. Misuel is still my favorite 😀 but Minori wins the cake, seriously she’s really awesome. Shinichi’s pretty tame compared to Minori.
Strike the Blood 06
It was pretty…. generic. Usual fighting scenes, usual Himeragi “tsundere” act, usual misunderstandings, usual overpowered goth loli.
All in all…. I was really hoping for a better story 😦
Kill La Kill 06
I’m on the verge of dropping this series… I’ll explain later.
If there’s one thing for certain about Kill La Kill is that this episode surpasses every episode aired so far in terms of nonsense. I don’t have anything constructive to offer except the ongoing fanservice “criticism”. (quotes added for now)
I’ve decided to not drop the series, in addition I also don’t feel like finding hidden meanings in the series until it’s completed. Therefore I’m just going to whatever they throw at us. I’ll be reading other blogs to see other people thoughts on it.
Kill la Kill second episode is out. In my hopes of it having an interesting plot (?), we had been served lots of fanservice and mindless fun. I’m totally okay with that, do be aware that I’m not here to condone the series or be a “white knight” (lol? these new terms are killing me).
In all honest I thought the series could do more. I know only two episodes are out, this thing is the most anime thing that has ever come out in the history of anime. Full nonstop nonsense. I think one of the things that I love about Kill la Kill is the voice actors. The protagonist is voiced by Ami Koshimizu which I believe is doing a damn great job. I love me some strong female lead kicking ass.
