Current anime episodes comments - DRAMAtical Murder, Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun

DRAMAtical Murder



Episode 9

Clear comes to Aoba's rescue.
The shower part was a big deal.
Clear finally showed his face!
To think he was hiding such a pretty face..
The brainwashing music was having a negative effect on Aoba.
He sure is a special guy.
Hope Clear won't wear that mask again.
He doesn't need it at all.
Wtf?! Clear has clones? And they work for Toue!
Looks like he isn't even human..
All that explains why he had the mask on all the time.
Still, shame that his role ended so soon..


Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun

Episode 9

Sakura is the same idiot as Nozaki.
Those two really are for each other.
Everything is a manga story opportunity for Nozaki.
At least Kashima didn't have any umbrella problems.
Yuzuki saved the day with her umbrella LOL
Wasn't Nozaki supposed to be carrying the umbrella? ROFL
Miyako mangaka was still having tanuki problems..
There is no way she could get rid of her tanuki crazed editor.
Good episode.

Anime Movies - Steins;Gate Fuka Ryouiki no Deja vu


Steins;Gate anime series was unique and somewhat complex, but I really enjoyed it. It was amazing how they managed to incorporate science, fun and normal life into one series. After the anime series I expected nothing less from this movie and as expected it didn't disappoint. 
It's been a while since the series ended, so it was nice to see all the familiar characters once again. I really missed them all, especially Okabe and Kurisu ^^ You can never get tired of watching those two bicker LOL
Time travel can be very problematic and confusing. Memory leaks from previous time lines seem to be causing unpredictable behavior problems. Well, when you mess with time, there are bound to be some consequences.
If you don't watch this movie closely from beginning to the end, you'll probably get lost along the way. At first things were pretty simple, but then again, things are never what they look like in Steins;Gate. After some time, it got complicated rather quickly with a pretty big dose of emotions and seriousness.
The animation was pretty much the same as the anime series which means really nice character animation with details and very well done backgrounds as well.
Honestly, Steins;Gate is just that kind of anime which you have to see for yourself to like it or hate it. Give it a try if you're a newbie. If you know the series and have seen it, you'll enjoy this movie.


Genre: sci-fi, thriller, mystery

Plot:
The film takes place one year after the events of the anime series. After going through a painstaking journey across multiple 'World Lines' due to the invention of 'D-Mail', text messages that can be sent to the past, Rintarou Okabe has assumedly landed in the "Steins Gate" World Line, in which none of his friends would have to die and a future ruled by SERN due to the invention of a time machine no longer exists. However, Rintarou soon starts feeling the side effects of his constant time travelling across multiple World Lines, which soon builds up and causes Rintarou to suddenly vanish from existence, with only Kurisu Makise, the girl who he had saved thanks to his efforts, remembering him through déjà vu. It is now up to Kurisu to find a way to get Rintarou back.

Current anime episodes comments - Jojo Stardust Crusaders, Tokyo ESP, Fairy Tail, Sword Art Online II, Aldnoah.Zero, One Piece, Haikyuu!!, Akame ga Kill!

Jojo Stardust Crusaders



Episode 22

Baka Polnareff got what he wished for.
No way, Avdol wasn't dead!?
Damn, that was a nice surprise.
At least he took care of his zombie self..
Cameo challenged Avdol to make his wishes.
Avdol had a different kind of wishes in mind LOL
It was very enjoyable watching him kick Cameo's ass.
Cameo's user sure was pathetic when discovered..
The rest of the guys accepted Avdols return as a normal thing.
That sure pissed Polnareff off LOL
Poor guy was totally out of the Avdol loop..
It wasn't nice they all kept such a big secret from him.


Tokyo ESP


Episode 8

Ayumu & mom talk.
I knew she was going to be ungrateful..
There sure were a lot of anti ESP propaganda around town.
Rinka is still feeling guilty about Kyotaro.
Flashbacks to time time together were nice.
Rinka got attacked at the amusement park.
Good thing she trained for something like that.
Minami seems to be recruiting newly made espers.
She is definitely up to something.
There is no way she would just let Kyotarou go..
Still, Rinka got her wish.


Fairy Tail



Episode 22

Zirconis sure has a thing for girls.
Laxus was too careless with him.
Rogue & Sting vs 2 dragons!
Our dragon slayers were having problems dealing with dragons..
More about Ultear's childhood got revealed.
Wow! She actually sacrificed herself to revert time.
Damn, didn't expect that from her.
That act at least saved Gray's life & much more.
It brought the edge that they needed to get serious & fight with more motivation.
Future Lucy's diary was of some help as well.


Sword Art Online II



Episode 9

A short recap through Asuna's & other ALO players eyes.
No way, DG avoided that shot?! Impressive.
DG killed another player...
Wish they'd make a theory about how he manages to kill people thought a game.
Asuna & Klein made the connection about who DG might be.
Not surprising since they were all in SAO..
Sinon got used again, but she also got intrigued.
Looks like both of them forgot the point of BoB
DG is just more important.
Still, Kirito & Sinon make a great team whoever they fight.
Their plan to ambush DG went sideways.
Sinon was the one to get ambushed... not good.
Really don't like cliffhangers..


Aldnoah.Zero



Episode 9

Slaine is alive and well.
But, unfortunately in the hands of the real traitor.
Rayet sure is an unusual girl.
She holds a serious grudge towards the Martians.
Marito got some PTSD therapy.
At least we got to see how the whole thing went down.
Kinda slow episode dealing with some personal dramas.
Rayet got her chance to use her murderous intent..
Wonder what the consequences are gonna look like.


One Piece



Episode 659

That Bartolomeo is just too emotional..
Dressrosa's past finally revealed!
Tin soldier (Rebecca's dad) told the story.
Of course Doflamingo had to ruin 800 years without wars..
He ruined the country through calculated threats/demands/manipulation.
That bastard so deserves to die!
He is pure evil.


Haikyuu!!


Episode 22

With Kageyama back in the game things got interesting.
His happy face was totally creepy.
Lets hope he won't get sidetracked again.
It was nice to see him try to change for others.
His high fives were ROFL
2nd set was much better for Karasuno.
Tsukishima's game was off.
Looks like it was 'cause he didn't like Kageyama.
Thanks to Kageyama's lenience today anything can be fixed!
It was awesome watching Karasuno function as a real team.
Flashback to Oikawa-Kageyama past was a nice way to understand some things.
Great episode with nice progress!


Akame ga Kill!


Episode 9

Tatsumi needs to train more to be able to use that armor.
Another naive youth comes to the big city.
Shame he's on the wrong side.
Seems like a nice guy.
Esdeath forms a new team - the Jaegers.
Judging by Esdeath's demands for her "husband", Tatsumi is the perfect for her.
That arena battle got Tatsumi noticed by Esdeath.
He just got himself a collar.
I bet she's into S&M and serious bondage.
LOL "poor" Tatsumi..
Nice episode.

Ao Haru Ride



Episode 8

Futaba's confession to Yuuri was delayed at first.
Previous friend reminded her that she's a changed person now.
Somehow things kept preventing her to spill the beans already..
Damn, she actually did it!!
Wow, that took some guts.
Luckily, Yuuri didn't react badly at all, just the opposite.
I was glad things turned out that way since both of them are nice.
Seems Yuuri just put on a brave face, but with no hard feelings.
Murao found herself in the middle of it all.. so she confessed too.
Didn't see that coming! Interesting though, but not surprising.
I already suspected she had a thing for Tanaka sensei.
Well, now all the girls have one thing more in common ^^
Futaba somehow ended up following Kou.
She confronted him about his whereabouts and that kinda backfired.
Yet, he still cared enough to try get her home.
Surprisingly she was stubborn enough to keep following.
Their midnight talk was interesting & nice ^^
Guess she got her hopes up too soon..


Hunter x Hunter



Episode 144

That Ging sure has a terrible personality.
But sometimes he is right though.
Pariston is a sly and devious guy.
Have a feeling things won't be good for hunters if he wins.
So Leorio actually made it to the last 4 candidates!
Seems like the final election is gonna be a marathon..
Leorio was all about Gon.
Still, his unusual speech got through to the voters.
Killua & Alluka finally made it to the hospital.
This episode was all about the elections.
Next time, hopefully, we'll see more Killua & action.


Free! Eternal Summer



Episode 9

Nitori finally showed he can swim for real.
Guess all the training payed off.
With Regionals just around the corner Iwatobi is training hard too.
Iwatobi & Samezuka in the same hotel ^^
A scout makes a personal appearance.
Haruka didn't look that thrilled about it.
Rin was well aware of the scouts & he was very serious about them.
Haruka was feeling cornered by all the pressure..
Guess other people's expectations were messing with his head.
Regionals were on a totally different level than Prefecturals.
Makoto didn't make it to the finals. Haru quit.
Rin was amazing!
Haruka got strangled by the water... he just couldn't take the pressure.
Rin confronted Haru and he snapped..
Damn, that's so not the Haru we're used to seeing.
Wonder what is his trauma & fear...


Bakumatsu Rock


 Episode 9

Wow! Ryo's band sure is popular now!
Fan are cheering around every corner, but so are the government guys.
They keep preventing their rock concerts.
In the end they were forced to perform under masks LOL
Still, the appearances don't matter, only the music that fans love.
Guess they have more of a future under than masks then without them.
Heaven's song is just not working anymore.
Interesting that even the government is switching to rock.
Our band is in the big leagues now.
Things were not as simple as before.
In the end the masks fell and their hearts were free again!
(Don't you just love then their clothes rips off)
The band has an official name now: The Ultra Souls!


Love Stage!!



Episode 8

Izumi makes a debut.
Looks like he has feelings for Ryouma..
It was fun watching him freak over over his feelings.
Short summary of his life so far was nice.
Shougo & Sagara totally spoiled Izumi ^^
This part totally felt like some kind of documentary about Izumi's life.
Part about Sagara's past was interesting info.
The cat is out of the bag & there is no choice but to go public.
Ryouma's calming technique for Izumi was a good one ^^
That debut was a smart one.
Things should calm down a bit for Ryouma after that.
Doubt Izumi will have any free time after his debut though..


Naruto Shippuuden



Episode 374

Wait.. Sakura can summon?
I either missed it before or it's a new thing.
Sakura's healing powers have truly evolved to a high level.
Summoning the familiars was a good move.
Naruto & Sasuke make a great attack team.
Tsunade got seriously injured and reverted to her true form..
Suigetsu and the snails ROFL
That was a nice comic relief for a very serious situation.
It's nice they managed to re-attach her.
Still, it's a miracle she managed to survive that..
Orochimaru is still suspicious to her.
That flashback about their past was pretty interesting.
He's too good to be true now. I don't trust his "change"..


Tokyo Ghoul



Episode  9

Mado & Amon history.
That Amon sure was naive at first.
Just like any newbie, I guess..
Hinami seems to be holding up well.
Her & Touka roommates. At least they won't feel as lonely.
Ken got pickpocketed by some weird guy.
Amon got a new partner & a transfer.
Touka's childhood flashback was sweet.
Looks like Touka's brother is gonna visit next time.


Kuroshitsuji: Book of Circus



Episode 8

Grell is baaack!!
Sure has been a while since we've seen him.
Lord Kelvin is a very twisted man.
Vincent looks similar to Sebastian.
They finally showed us how things progressed.
Ciel snapped with good reason.
Shame some parts were censored..
Joker was obviously suffering from delusions & misplaced loyalty.
Those Phantomhive servants sure a re a dangerous bunch.
Damn, the action parts were awesome!

Sword Art Online II



Episode 8

Kirito pumping Sinon for info... again.
He would totally be out of the loop if it wasn't for her.
Looks like Kirito got famous & popular fast!
Him pretending to be a girl again was kinda lame though.
Guess he has to keep his cover..
Kirito is gonna use BoB main tournament to find Death Gun.
That is if he is even participating.
Surprise, of course he is!
It was fun watching Kirito & Sinon observe the situation on the bridge.
Interesting ending.


Aldnoah.Zero



Episode 8

The missing piece is here.
It was nice they showed us how they got the ship & how the Princess revealed herself.
Poor Slaine got captured and tortured 'cause of Inaho.
He definitely did not deserve that!
Revealing that Princess was alive would be dangerous.
At least for now since they don't know who exactly wanted her dead.
Slaine so did not deserve the misfortune that fell upon him.
In the end he let it slip the Princess is alive.
Luckily, it wasn't to the wrong guy.
The true traitor made his move rather quickly though..


Barakamon



Episode 8

Naru having a birthday.
Seishuu was having problems getting her the perfect gift.
Looks like he has a fear of beetles..
Still, he teamed up with the kids.
That wasn't going so well for him ^^"
It was nice to see kids took pity on him in the end..
Damn, he's hopeless..
It's unbelievable how Naru actually loved Seishuu's present.
Damn, their Bon customs are pretty unusual.
Still, it was nice to see it in more detail.
Seems like Seishuu got quite attached to Naru & she to him.
Nice episode ^^


One Piece



Episode 658

OMG Bartolomeo *facepalm*
Damn, his view of Luffy is just too bishounen.
He's worse than any fan girl..
The fighters junkyard is just too cruel.
Doflamingo sure is a heartless bastard.
Even the former King is there.
I thought he was dead..
There are some pretty strong guys there yet they can't get out.
Wonder how will they escape that place.
So they are using the losers to turn them into toys!
Damn, what a cruel fate.
Wonder how they do it though..
Seems like King Riku is loved by his people.
He's not the bad guy they paint him to be.
Doflamingo & his minions are the true bad guys!


Haikyuu!!



Episode 21

Kageyama got booted off the field.
Koshi came in instead of Kageyama.
Looks like changing players was a good choice.
Koshi is pretty cheerful and nice.
Such a nice change from Kageyama.
Seems like he lifted the teams spirit too.
Thanks to that things got back on track.
Oikawa made sure to ruin Karasuno's streak.
2nd set is their chance to take the lead.
Nice! Karasuno broke Oikawa's streak!
And Kageyama comes into the game again.
Guess he's gotten pumped up enough.
Intense episode!


Akame ga Kill!



Episode 8

Tatsumi was obviously impressed by Bulat's fighting.
Bulat vs General Liver!
That Liver has an interesting imperial arms.
On the sidelines Tatsumi vs Nyau.
Bulat sure suffered a lot of damage.
His imperial arms just deactivated.
After imperial arms became useless swords came in handy.
Damn, those two really wanted to kill each other.
Damn, just realized Nyau is a guy *facepalm*
Nyau's ability turned him into a pumped up muscle man.
Wonder if Bulat will survive.. guess not.
At least he gave Tatsumi his imperial arms.
Didn't know that armor was actually a dragon! Cool.
He sure showed Nyau who's boss.
And with that only the boss = Esdeath is left.
Her and that justice girl (just for the sake of revenge).


DRAMAtical Murder



Episode 8

Noiz was just trying to help, but Aoba overreacted.
It wasn't necessary to injure him.
So their goal is to awaken the other Aoba..
Guess they're gonna keep putting him in stressful situations to do that.
Noiz's hands are full of scars.
He's either very clumsy or a sign of his not so happy past.
At least Aoba & Noiz managed to spend some quality time together.
In the end he got saved by Aoba too.


Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun



Episode 8

Kashima was surprised Hori read shoujo manga with so much attention to detail.
Mikoshiba spilled too much info about it too.
Now she thinks all the guys are obsessed with shoujo manga.
Damn, that Kashima would be an awesome male manga protagonist.
OMG! The amount of misinterpreted reactions was just epic & ROFL
Kashima was totally unintentionally bullying Hori with clothes LOL
On the other hand Nozaki wasn't making things easier for him either.
Kashima & Hori rodeo... wtf was that? It was hilarious!!
Great episode!

Tokyo Ghoul



Episode 8

Hinami missing.
Doves on the loose.
It's like just asking for trouble.
Of course the worts kind of trouble found them.
Kaneki decided to be a diversion.
He sucked at that.. was weak even against a relative newbie dove.
Touka was up against the old guy. Not an easy task.
It was nice to see Kaneki get serious after all those displays of weakness.
Hinami showed she can fight too!
This episode had a nice amount of action.
Finally, those doves are finished.
Well, at least the older one is done for.
The younger might return seeking revenge..


Zankyou no Terror



Episode 7

Our guys are smart, but 5 was hot on their trail.
That game of chess felt more like a game of tag.
It was fun watching them run around the airport.
The music made the suspense even greater.
Lisa got her first task.
9 pulled a checkmate on 5 or so he thought.
Guess 5 pulled a fast one on them after all.
Lisa found herself in the middle of ultra serious trouble.
Wonder how they're gonna get her out of that mess..
With some instructions from our duo she almost saved herself.
Without Shibazaki that crazy bitch would've blown up the whole airport.
Damn! She is totally insane.
Lisa was stupid to take her ID with her.. such a rookie mistake.
That mistake is gonna come back and bite the on the ass.
Great episode!


Kuroko's Basketball



Episode 22.5

Kise's modelling career.
Guess that's what he was up to before devoting himself to basketball.
All of them sure were huge for middle schoolers..
So this is how the best of the best came together as a team.
It was nice seeing all of them on the same side.
Kuroko was not as impressive when compared to others..
Well, Kise sure joined the the first string fast.
Little ice-cream adventure was fun ^^
It was fun watching Kise's confused face about Kuroko being a regular.
He realized why soon enough.
Teiko vs Komagi game showed what Kuroko does best ^^
Very nice episode that filled some gaps.


Terra Formars


OVA

Interesting anime.
Guess the locals has something to say about humans invading their teritorry.
Earth became too small and they had to terraform.
Sent roaches to make it habitable.
500 years later roaches evolved into human-like creatures and became locals.
First victim was claimed.
It was interesting to see the humans had some hidden powers too.
The roach rebellion kept dropping humans like flies..
Damn... too many victims in such a short time.
After seeing this wonder what the anime series is gonna be like.


Jojo Stardust Crusaders



Episode 21

Another interesting detour.
This time thanks to Joseph.
Seeing Avdol's dad was especially hard on Polnareff.
You find a creepy ass Aladdin lamp on the beach.
Of course you're gonna rub it.. *facepalm Polnareff*
It was amusing watching him think about his wishes.
The resurrection wish actually came true!
Damn, but wasn't that kinda too easy?
Of course that was a trap.
That Cameo stand sure pulled a fast of on Polnareff.
Very interesting.


Tokyo ESP



Episode 7

Rinka was getting her ass handed to her by Ayumu.
Master Roshi sure paired her with an interesting guy.
Guess he can see things before they happen; precognition.
It's ironic how Ayumu's mom is against ESP users.
Rinka sure was serious about training..
Was fun when she realized his power & kicked his ass.
It was surprising to see Murasai show interest in training too.
Kyoutarou-Minami drama continues..
Ayumu's mom got herself attacked.
It's no wonder since she's against ESP so openly & actively.
Wow! Didn't expect Murasaki & Ayumu to make such a good team.
Damn, now the skeleton is out of the closet.
Wonder if his mom is gonna be ungrateful and judge him or the opposite..


Kuroshitsuji: Book of Circus



Episode 7

That "Father" is one creepy guy.
Circus is packing up..
Things got too hot for them to hang around longer.
Sebastian trying to spoil Ciel kinda backfired ROFL
Ciel & Sebastian went straight into the lion's den, dangerous!
That mansion was as creepy as its lord.
All those missing kids... damn!
That lord has one weird, creepy and deranged fetish.
Ciel instantly got flashbacks to his torture...
Trauma from the past rose to the surface once more.


Fairy Tail



Episode  21

Millianna - Jellal - Ultear circle of negative emotions.
Flashbacks to their captive days were a nice reminder of things past.
Rogue got his spirits up after pairing up with Sting.
Erza & Jellal fighting together ^^
That's always a pretty sight.
Looks like some of the fighters are getting tired..
No wonder since they can't do any damage to dragons.
Our dragon slayers were practically nowhere to be seen this time.
Gray took a few shots for Juvia... don't think he's gonna recover from that..
