Current anime episode comments - Isuca, Fairy Tail, Durarara!!x2, One Piece, Kuroko's Basketball 3

Isuca



Episode 2

Shimazu sure can be stubborn.
Tama got lucky that Asano was so determined to save her.
Now he has a pet cat/girl.
By a weird twist of fate Asano got a job as Shimazu's housekeeper.
Guess those two are stuck together now.
Rat spirit made a mess this time.
Shimazu's fear or rats was ROFL
It was lucky for them that they have a cat now.
Taking life force was very ecchi *blush*
Our little trio is stuck together now.


Fairy Tail



Episode 43

Super monster transformation.
Damn, this felt so out of place for this anime.
The setting just felt wrong.
Don't like this arc.
Reminds me too much of Naruto fillers.
Hope Fairy Tail won't take the same direction..
Now that Natsu defeated the enemy things went back to normal.
Even the spirits were themselves again minus the memories of being bad.


Durarara!!x2



Episode 4

Poor Celty just can't catch a break..
Mikado got into a trouble of his own.
Celty got a bit ruff with those bikers w/some help LOL
Well, that was one way of getting rid of their tail.
Watching Shizuo snap is always so enjoyable ^^
Things played out in a fun way.
Seems like everyone had a get-together at Shinr & Celty's place.
Looks like Izaya was a bit jealous that he missed out..
So Aoba is planning to enter discord into Izaya's world.
That should be interesting to watch.


One Piece



Episode 680

It's still unbelievable to me that this anime wastes more then 5 minutes on recap & OP.
Destroying that factory is gonna be really hard.
Luffy vs Doflamingo!
Luffy was getting his ass kicked.
That Doflamingo bastard used his power "parasite" again.
It was the same as when the king was dethroned.
This episode was full of chaos..
Doflamingo really is the devil.
Let the bounty hunter game begin!


Kuroko's Basketball 3



Episode 4

Alex & Kagami morning situation was ROFL
It's been a while since the focus was on Kagami.
The shoes/sneakers situation was kinda funny too.
So Aomine & Kagami have the same shoe size... LOL
Rakuzan vs Seirin coming soon.
Looks like Rakuzan is gonna be a challenge for our guys.
Now Shutoku has to deal with them first!
Shame we don't get to see other games in more length.

Current anime episodes comments - Junketsu no Maria, Seiken Tsukai no World Break, Kamisama Hajimemashita 2, Yowamushi Pedal, Parasyte -the maxim-, Naruto Shippuuden, Tokyo Ghoul 2, Death Parade

Junketsu no Maria



Episode 3

Reasoning with Michael.. a hard task.
Well damn, virginity vs magical powers..
Wonder how long she'll last.
Owl fight was LOL but they were right to push Ezekiel around for a bit.
Joseph obviously has a thing for Maria & now she knows it too.
England vs France just causes her to react every time.
The church seems to be taking more interest in Maria as well.
She's been warned twice now about messing with balance..
Being this stubborn will only bring her more trouble.


Seiken Tsukai no World Break



Episode 3

Yeah, the characters really do have eyes pretty wide apart.
I just noticed that... unusual.
The British customer was an interesting guy.
Moroha practice fight was short but sweet.
An input from a past life was interesting.
Dinner party was oh so formal.
Was nice to see them all dressed up.
A surprise fight was pretty good.


Kamisama Hajimemashita 2



Episode 3

Divine assembly time.
That god of war was very unpleasant.
Nanami looking for Mikage? She was pretty serious about it too.
Incredibly as always, she takes the most complicated jobs..
Otohiko was as fun as always..
Tomoe was completely out of it.. missing Nanami too much.
Netherworld adventure start!


Yowamushi Pedal



Episode 15

Naruko pulled the team ahead.
There's a climbers spirit in him.
He's a toal crowd pleaser.
That was a great way to lift the team's spirit!
Naruko totally took the spotlight this time.
It was nice to see Sohoku's hidden strategy.
Sprinting uphill. That was new & impressive as hell.
Naruko was pushing himself way beyond his limit.
No way!!! They caught up to Hakone! This was beyond amazing!!
Great episode!


Parasyte -the maxim-


Episode 16

P.I. got dealt with in the worst way.. losing his family.
Shinichi's fight continued.
It was very interesting observing their strategies.
5 on 1 was so not fair..
He barely managed to escape.
Those parasites aren't gonna stop trying to kill them.
Tamura found herself in trouble.
Guess her own kind thinks she's a threat.


Naruto Shippuuden



Episode 397

All that math was kinda confusing.
Signaling to each other was interesting to watch.
This was more of a psychological test than anything else.
Making people sweat and freak out.
That sure was a weird test.
Round 1 is finally over..


Tokyo Ghoul 2


Episode 4

A small part of Amon's past got revealed.
Guess you can never run far enough from a messed up past.
No wonder he became an investigator.
Aogiri attack came at an interesting time.
That ghoul prison sure offered a whole bunch of interesting characters.
So the halfling twins know Juzo... intriguing.
Kaneki proved once more that he's a weakling..


Death Parade



Episode 4

Another pair gets to play.
Arcade game this time.
Both of them were completely delusional.
The arcade thing was a classic fight game.
It was interesting to watch their flashbacks.
Damn, that lady snapped rather easily.
This was a weird one.

Current anime episodes comments - Death Parade, Assassination Classroom, Fairy Tail, Isuca, Durarara!!x2, One Piece, World Trigger, Kuroko's Basketball 3

Death Parade



Episode 3

A new pair plays a game.
This time it's bowling.
It's nice to see the new assistant play her part.
This new pair didn't seem like a couple at all.
Their behavior was innocent... like they had some hidden feelings.
Guess they don't have to be a couple after all.
Maybe just have some feelings for each other..
This episode wasn't as dramatic as first, but was more sad.


Assassination Classroom



Episode 3

Koro sensei sure is a fun creature ^^"
New gym class looked more like combat training.
Guess it will do them good in the future.
Karma is back... I kid you not.
Damn, that kid sure is a trouble maker.
He's probably the only one who can be a real threat to Koro sensei.
Karma seems to be exploiting all of his weak spots.
Koro retaliated with doing the same.
That kid was seriously damaged.
Koro just might rehabilitate him with time..


Fairy Tail



Episode 42

Celestial Spirit King out of control.
Guess that's the target for our team.
That 13th spirit went down rather easily.
It's time for a boss fight!
This is gonna need a serious team effort.
Maybe this arc will finally end in the the next episode or two..


Isuca



Episode 1

Interesting beginning.
That Asano guy is a monster magnet..
Or just has extremely bad luck.
The fight parts were pretty good.
This anime has potential.
I might give it a try.


Durarara!!x2



Episode 3

Looks like Ruri is that monster killer..
It does make sense.
Yuhei got himself in an interesting situation.
Doctor got himself into a mess as well.
The twins are Izaya's sisters?! No way!
That makes things even more interesting.
Fun episode ^^


One Piece



Episode 679

Sabo needs to learn some control of his new power.
That flashback gave us a nice reminder of the past.
Looks like the Revolutionary Army was also here.
Bartolomeo was throwing his usual fan boy fit.
Law was being unreasonable, but funny.
Pica was just being a nuisance.
Damn, I knew it was too easy for Doflamingo to die that way.
Not good at all..


World Trigger


Episode 15

Jin's sword was very cool looking.
His black trigger is impressive.
Tachikawa vs Jin continues..
It was pretty obvious he's way better than the team that attacked him.
Action filled episode with nice explanations.


Kuroko's Basketball 3



Episode 3

More info about Shougo.
He sure was a big middle schooler..
Kise was off his game for some time.
Looks like Shougo got to him in a bad way.
It was nice to Kise get a grip & find new strength.
Good episode.

Kuroko's Basketball 3


Episode 2

More about generation of miracles.
Damn, that Shougo is so easy to hate.
Kise vs Shougo! Wonder who's team is gonna win.
One this is true, Shougo sure can play & is fast too.
The game was intense, but enjoyable.
Shougo's older look/hair style was way cooler than this one.
Wonder why they changed it..
Kise is gonna have to overcome himself to win this thing.


World Trigger



Episode 14

Yuuma, Osamu and Chika get new triggers.
Triggers explained trough a fight - Jin vs those guys from last time.
That was a nice touch.
It was interesting watching them fight, but there were too many characters involved.
Jin vs Tachikawa fight was the best.
Guess it's not over yet..


Junketsu no Maria


Episode 2

I just don't know what to do with this one.
Drop it or keep watching?
It's weird, borderline too weird for my taste.
Artemis overdid it, but Maria finally saw something new.
Michael kept interfering with Maria's work.
Keeping balance is a good excuse to make.
The world is an unfair place.
Joseph pulled an interesting stunt.
Wonder if it'll cost him..
Will give it a few more episodes.


Seiken Tsukai no World Break


Episode 2

That Satsuki sure is pretty loud.
Urushibara and her are total opposites.
Joining Rank C was easy, but requires really good skills.
Urushibara is definitely the calm, collected type who thinks first.
Satsuki is so not.. ^^"
Those two hanging out was just unusual, but they make a good team.
Still, that wouldn't be complete without a hero to rescue them both.
Luckily, Moroha came running in with a cool display of power.


Imawa no Kuni no Arisu (Alice in Borderland)


OVA 2

Facing reality.
Let the deadly game of tag begin!
Sure was intense watching them try and outrun the killer.
Attacking it was just another mistake..
Damn, that was great!
I wish this was a regular anime series.
It certainly has potential.


Parasyte -the maxim-



Episode 15

Damn, those full parasites sure are cold & cruel.
Shinichi's fight with that guy was good.
Guess a regular parasyte is no match for him.
Shame he didn't manage to save that woman.
Kuramori was shocked by what he saw.
He got scared shitless and bailed on Shinichi.
Shinichi got to be the main topic of the parasites conversation.
All in all not good.
New type of parasyte, 3-in-1 deal & deadly too.
That's gonna be an epic fight!


Naruto Shippuuden



Episode 396

Still at it..
It was nice to see the younger versions once again.
The exam wasn't half bad either.
This feels like they are trying to return Naruto to it's beginnings.
Well, it was better then.
There weren't so many fillers and unnecessary skipping around.


Tokyo Ghoul 2



Episode 3

Making a move.
One-eyed ghouls made an appearance.
Looks like they have some interest in Kaneki.
Touka getting the college experience.. sort of.
Things were pretty calm though.
Felt more like a preparation for something more.
