Current anime episodes comments - Chaos Dragon, Joukamachi no Dandelion, Overlord

Chaos Dragon


Episode 1

Stumbled onto this one..
Somehow everyone (mc's) looks loli?
There were some exceptions.
Interesting choice of art style.
Reminds me more of a game than anime.
Not feeling it. Skipping this one.
Too many fantasy anime to choose from this summer..


Joukamachi no Dandelion



Episode 1

What an unusual family.
That Akane.. such sense of justice, yet so camera shy.
Game part was kinda fun.
Not bad, but think I'll skip this.
There is a lot to pick from this summer season.


Overlord


Episode 1

Interesting..
Starts off kinda sad & then it gets intriguing.
Will be fun to see where this is heading..
So far, it's got me interested.
Will give it a try.

Current anime episodes comments - Durarara!! x2, One Piece, World Trigger, Rokka no Yuusha, Ushio to Tora, Gangsta, Akagami no Shirayukihime, Jitsu wa Watashi wa

Durarara!!x2



Episode 13

Izaya got attacked by the mysterious Jinnai.
Nobody seemed to care much about his stabbing though.
Things got interesting near the end.
Lots of talking as usual..
Still, a good continuance of the series.


One Piece












Episode 700

Shocking & scary... Doflamingo's story was really something.
His way of thinking is just creepy.
Meanwhile, the town was out of control.
Law's past came into light this time.
Interesting stuff so far!


World Trigger



Episode 37 

Looks like a lot of people care about Osamu.
Kuga was kinda avoiding to visit him.
Ranking according to individual success with the enemy was interesting.
Looks like there is still hope for Replica.
Shame the Border put all the blame on Osamu..


Rokka no Yuusha



Episode 1 

Arrogance but not without a cause.
Adlet just took it a bit too far..
The Demon God intro story was interesting.
Imprisonment time was kinda fun to watch ^^
Looks like the kid was right about his destiny.
Will give it more time before my final decision.


Ushio to Tora



Episode 1

Not a fan of this art style.
Looks old fashioned..
Well, everything depends on the story.
Seems pretty intense & kinda funny at times.
Does have some potential though.
Have to give it a few more episodes before I decide.


Gangsta



Episode 1

The eye patch blond guy gave me instant flashback to Black Lagoon!
Maybe it's the character art..
Two main characters look very interesting.
Action scenes are good.
Really like the realistic, as much as possible, side of this anime.
Definitely watching this!


Akagami no Shirayukihime



Episode 1

Lots of fantasy anime this summer season..
Very informative anime about plants.
After reading the plot I wasn't impressed.
Still decided to give the 1st ep a try.
I like Zen & Shirayuki ^^
But don't know what to make of this anime..
Too early to decide, will give it more time.


Jitsu wa Watashi wa


Episode 1

A new kind of MC.
Can't lie & can't keep secrets.
Had higher expectations..
So far nothing that special.
I'll give it one more episode.

Current anime episodes comments - Naruto Shippuuden, Shokugeki no Souma, Fairy Tail, Ranpo Kitan, Classroom Crisis, GATE, Aoharu x Kikanjuu, Charlotte

Naruto Shippuuden



Episode 418

Kabuto helping Sasuke... interesting.
Of course they threw in some flashbacks.
Guy went head to head with Madara, nice!
Some more flashbacks.. about Guy.
That part was actually not that bad.


Shokugeki no Souma



Episode 14

Souma ran into his first serious obstacle.
The souffle thing was obviously not working, so he improvised!
Looks like he's good at that ^^
He barely made it..
Erina was most impressive this time.
She outdid everyone with the double quota.
One challenge done & another is about to begin soon!


Fairy Tail



Episode 65 

Elfman succumbed to desperate measures.
Natsu, Lisanna, Erza, Mira... still trapped.
Jackal & Tempesta regenerated and ready to fight on.
Lots of desperation going around..


Ranpo Kitan



Episode 1

Kobayashi found himself in the middle of a problem.
Akechi looks interesting.
Inspector Kagami isn't bad either.
Off to a really nice start!
Things got all explain-y after the nice start though..
Will give it a few more episodes before I decide.


Classroom Crisis



Episode 1

That Iris sure know how to make an entrance.
Kidnapped transfer student problem dominated throughout the episode.
The prototype, space fight and setting in the future give this a chance.
Well, at least they do with me.
So far, not bad with some fun parts.
Will decide after seeing more.


GATE



Episode 1

Close to Outbreak Company.
There are differences, of course.
The MC is employed, fantasy world came to them..
He's actually pretty brave too!
So far, not bad at all.
Have to see more before final decision.


Aoharu x  Kikanjuu



Episode 1

Tachibana looks like an interesting character.
Pretty impressive too!
Things got complicated rather fast.
That Masamune sure is a hottie O.O
Well... this looks like fun ^^
Will be watching it!


Charlotte


Episode 1

Very interesting indeed.
Yu really knew how to use his gift.
Things were really working out for him.
Well.. up to a certain point when it got even more intriguing.
Will give this a try..

Uta no Prince-sama Revolutions

Episode 13 Final

Quartet Night vs Starish on TripleS!!
1st band gave it their all and really did a great job of it.
It was time for Starish to shine.
And they did, ever so brightly!
Both bands were amazing!
Heavens were a nice surprise.
Didn't expect them to return after the UtaPri awards..
An unfinished end. Guess we'll get another season for sure!


Plastic Memories



Episode 13 Final

Cleaning the apartment together ^^
They make a nice team.
Bath time was pretty sweet too.
They did so much... no regrets!
It's like they tried to fully enjoy their last moments together.
The real emotions came pouring out on the Ferris Wheel.
Sad ending, as expected.. but not without hope.


One Piece


Episode 699

Doflamingo pissed off!!
Think it's the first time we see him fighting seriously.
Sabo reminiscing about his talk with Navy admiral Fujitora.
Usopp and the others got captured.. things aren't looking good for them.
Good thing the people had a change of heart.
Looks like Doflamingo is something else... not that much human at all.
Finally, his history came into the light.
Great episode!


World Trigger



Episode 36

Osamu lying in hospital bed.
Thinking about everything that happened so far.
Half a year later he's still useless..
Rinji planning a visit to the Neighbor world.
Pretty relaxed episode.


Kuroko's Basketball 3



Episode 25 Final

Akashi & his team were doing their best to prevail.
Seirin was fighting hard too.
The game was more than intense!
All the sweat and hardship finally payed off for Seirin.
Of course the final shot had to be made by the epic Kuroko-Kagami duo ^^
A victory well deserved.
2nd half of the episode wrapped up things & opened up possibilities for another season.
Great final episode!


Kyoukai no Rinne



Episode 13

Sakura developed a Damashigami problem.
Sakura & Rokudou kinda being forced into engagement by his dad..
Ageha meddled in.. but at least she found her sister.
She is awfully naive too *facepalm*
The whole buch of misunderstanding with Sakura were frustrating..


Gintama



Episode 278

Story about Seita awkwardness..
Or more like his obento problem.
The kunai thing was just going too far.
Everyone took turns in making Seita's lunch.
They totally overdid it..
In the end Izumi & mom's bentos finally made things right.
Nice episode :)


Ore Monogatari!!



Episode 13

Treating Suna to a movie & more.
Those two were trying hard to make Suna happy.
Well, it sure was nice of them to do all that for his birthday ^^
Takeo can be pretty scary when he wants too.
Looks like Suna's sister still isn't over Takeo..
That Oda guy was pretty persistent.
He's not even that bad actually..
Can't wait to see how it'll continue!

Kyoukai no Rinne



Episode 12

Cursed mechanical pencil.
Looks like another Damashigami plot.
Shinigami Ageha appears.
Rokudou got mistaken for a bad guy.
Things got seriously twisted after that ^^"
Ageha's sister ran off with Rokudou's dad... *facepalm*
Sakura suddenly developed a spying problem..


Gintama



Episode 277 (12)

Lots of deviance going around..
Hijikata was determined to get his original form back.
No big surprise there since he is stuck with the least appealing form.
Since the chance to turn back came & went, everyone embraced the situation.
Yagyu seemed to be enjoying the most.
Shame they found a way to reverse the effects.
I was kinda hoping Yagyu would stay a guy... so hot O.O
Still, great episode!


Ore Monogatari!!



Episode 12

Takeo is unbeatable in sports... as expected!
Going ice skating was fun ^^
All the college talk had Takeo motivated to study hard.
His parents were thrilled that Yamato was his girlfriend ^^
All that led to no peace at study time.
Looks like both of them have problems with test ^^"
Fun episode!


Naruto Shippuuden



Episode 417

Team continues their mission.
Looks like it went well despite the sudden obstacles.
Obito finds out more about Kakashi's past..
That makes him warm up a little towards his comrade.
Guess all the past rewind stuff explains why Obito took Kakishi's side against Madara.


DanMachi


Episode 13 Final

Trouble in paradise..
Floor boss certainly showed up unexpectedly.
Of course Bell couldn't leave without saving others..
The whole town had no choice but fight!
Nice touch saving this for the final episode ^^
It was epic watching them unite and fight!!
Bell grew to amazing heights.
Amazing final episode!


Shokugeki no Souma



Episode 13

Another challenge!
This time a hotel breakfast.
Yukihira isn't satisfied with his current level.
Guess it's time to spice things up and evolve!
Watching people try out the dishes was cool.
Looks like breakfast was a success ^^


Fairy Tail



Episode 64

Natsu duking it out with Franmalth.
Silver meddeled in..
So he was the one that froze those giants.
Well, at least Happy made it back to report on things.
He gave Fairy Tail new hope!
Elfman in serious mode.. not good at all..
Things are heating up!


Re-Kan!


Episode 13 Final

Theme park time!
Amami's friends invited all the ghost to join them too ^^
Poor Inoue didn't like that part one bit!
Everyone had loads of fun at the haunted house ^^
Amami did some reminiscing..
Sleepover/festival at Amami's house was really nice.
Typical Re-Kan final episode, nothing over the top, yet special in its own way.

Current anime episodes comments - Re-Kan!, Owari no Seraph, Uta noPrince-sama Revolutions, Plastic Memories, Kekkai Sensen, Kuroko's Basketball 3, One Piece, World Trigger

Re-Kan!



Episode 12

No more ghosts?
Amami was lost without them.
Seeing the ghost of her mom seems to have taken her powers.
Inoue was dead set on cheering Amami up!
Despite everything she's a great friend.
Seeing all the people she helped with her powers did the trick!
Things went back to normal ^^


Owari no Seraph



Episode 12 Final

Human experimentation at its worst.
Guess that's the price for fighting vampires.
Yu woke up and looks fine after his beast-out.
Well... at least Mika is alive & there's hope.
2nd season should open up new possibilities.
We'll have to wait until October for it to start.


Uta no Prince-sama Revolutions



Episode 12

Starish vs Quartet Night!
That's gonna be interesting.
Both bands were really at it.
Doing their best to the max with practicing.
Final episode is looking to be epic!


Plastic Memories



Episode 12

Their coworkers really made an effort to help out.
Making new memories with Isla.
They are looking like a couple more and more <3
On a sadder note.. termination agreement for Isla came in...
The wrap up party was a nice touch.


Kekkai Sensen


Episode 11

Black & White's story.
All the way from the childhood days.
Those two weren't similar in traits at all.
Black has Leo & things aren't looking good..
Final episode should be a good one!


Kuroko's Basketball 3



Episode 24

Akashi got a grip.
The gap is getting bigger again.
Seirin suddenly got a grip.
They pulled an ace out of their asses!
Was about time too.
That last point was well made!
Final episode should be very intense!!


One Piece



Episode 698

Sugar successfully out of commission again ^^
That should make things easier!
Bellamy was pretty pathetic.
No wonder Luffy took pity on him.
Input into other people's fights was good.


World Trigger



Episode 35

The bad guys seem to be losing..
Replica had a big role in helping out.
Osamu did his best too.
7 seconds of hell left!
Was about time they got a break from fighting.
Trion soldiers left behind were quickly dealt with.
Hyuse stuck on Earth.. that should be useful.
Great episode!
