Sword Art Online:
Badass fight scene and epic bluffing skills.
That is all.
Saint Seiya Omega:
I would have liked this episode a lot more if I cared about Ryuho. As it is, him being the first guy to go seventh sense is kind of disappointing. It made for a cool moment though, can't deny that.
And nice to see Kouga keeps on getting steadily stronger. Shame he didn't fight more with Paradox though.
Oh well, at least they haven't killed her off just yet, so Darkness Kouga vs Gemini is a possibility.
Denpa Kyoushi :
Never change Kagami.
Seriously though, I recommend Denpa Kyoushi to anyone in the mood for some lighthearted comedy. It's the story of a retired super genius who finds himself as a teacher to a group of students every bit as special as he is.
Of course, he'd much rather stay at home and update his website, but money for new games has to come from somewhere.
I've recently seen Berserk Golden Age I: Egg of the Supreme Ruler.
For what it is, it was more than serviceable, and the details they gloss over do not overly hamper the experience. The 3D renders are not as bad as backdraft might suggest, since the rendering method allows much greater attention to scene creation and choreography - especially for the massive crowd shots and action scenes. The scale of the project is different than the series, in that there's less time to establish characters and the world, but it seeks to do Midland justice in a way younger technology was not able to back in 1995 or thereabouts. Yet in spite of the ground they have to cover, the story isn't rush at all and is afforded moments to breathe. Some of the best scenes are in simple bits of visual storytelling, the world building through atmospheric scenes without exposition.
All in all though, as good as it was, it's not playing at being anything more than an introduction to an overarching series, and that is a bit of a weakness. It doesn't stand very well by itself as a self-contained piece. What's set up is tantalizing and the main trio of Guts, Griffith and Casca are still strong engaging characters. Being just shy of an hour and a half, not every scene from the manga or even the anime series is present in this movie, perhaps because its deliberate pacing. If you're a stickler for 100% faithful adaptations, this isn't one of them.
Oh yes, the nudity and gore quotas are met sufficiently for the parts they cover.
Onepunch Man 16 - 18:
Saitama and Genos go at it in possibly one of the most stunningly beautiful fight scenes I have ever read.
Seriously, even someone like Yukito Kishiro could learn from this stuff. The usage of perspective and the portrayal of time in this series is utterly mindblowing.
More people should be reading this, the art is so pretty and the fight scenes so well done.
Also, it's damn funny.
I predict really good things for this series.
Well, nothing happened this month. Seriously. That was almost Bleach-level "nothing actually happens". It's especially notable because a lot usually happens in PH chapters.
...I guess it was at least explained why getting hit by that sword was supposed to be threatening.
And dammit, Oz, it's about time you start doing something again. It's starting to be hard to remember that you're the main character.
Suffering is a fact of life. You survive if you find a reason to endure it.
... I am kind of getting bored with this anime already. A romance is only as a strong as the participants in it and Rikka... she doesn't hold my interest. The anime spends way too much time in making her cute, which backfires for me as I find it kind of boring.
I really like Yuuya though. He along with Touka and Shinka are the reason I am probably going to keep watching this.
That and the hope of Dark Flame Master.
Went back to rereading the Xia Pi campaign of Ravages of Time...And it left me with a rather depressed mood as the aftermath was kind of heartbreaking even though those who read Romance of the Three Kingdoms or played Dynasty Warriors can figure out the outcome...Because it's Lu Bu for god sakes. In short, it's one Hell of a downward spiral for Lu Bu and his crew.
...I'm just gonna put this Lu Bu randomness from another series just for the Hell of it now to feel better.
