Archive for the ‘Hunter X Hunter 2011’ Category

So here we have another awesome week of Spring season. Both Goemon’s godly samurai techniques and Mutta’s embarrassing romance bits didn’t make the cut for me to talk about them this week, compared to when I struggled to find stuff to fill my posts with in the past Winter season. Yo keep it up animu!

Oh by the way, a few readers voted in the poll last week and it did the trick of making me believe in the slightest chance that some of you are actually reading my babble haha. Hereby I decided to keep the trend going until who knows when:

5. Hunter X Hunter 27:

ZUSHIIIII!!

I admit that I didn’t take chibi martial artist Zushi seriously before this moment, but then as he was readying himself for this stance I instantly got impressed! Atmosphere felt heavy, Killua became frightened, and I was anticipating what comes next… “ZUSHI!!!” broke that tension. I kinda wish it didn’t, but part of me was glad that it did. *cuz also didn’t want Killua to fall behind Gon again otherwise ugly bloodshed was gonna happen there :p*

4.  Eureka Seven Ao 2:

WELCOME BACK EUREKA

Alright, I’ll take this opportunity to complain first. So what the heck are all these abbreviations/vocabs in Eureka Seven about? FP? LFO? IFO? SFO? typeZERO? Trapar? Bahh at least now I know what Scub Coral looks like, and that it’s kind of natural explosive I guess. Yes, I’m a total no0b when it comes to mecha so I don’t appreciate it when a show like Eureka Seven/Ao tries to shove all its technobabble down my throat. Anyway all that aside, the battle between what looked to be a Nirvash *I can use this term here right? :p* and  the Secret *Ah, Mugann look-alike* was still brilliant! I think I already prefer Ao over E7 if only for the improved visual feast it offers, so that’s understandable right? Pfff I can’t stand being ignorant anymore that I’m starting to dig E7 for whatever reason now, I guess there’s some homework to be done then.

3. Tsuritama 2:

Akira Agarkar Yamada

I’m fascinated by this show, and among the many weird things that fascinates me about it Indian dude with a goose is alluring on a whole different level! I know that Sugita Tomokazu acting the role has something to do with his charm, but that’s just one of many reasons which makes Agarkar stands out. There is this eccentric charisma he has, which even creeped Haru out. And then the goose.. Also man, Agarkar theme OST when? =(

2. Fate/zero 15:

Excalibur!

Budget-burning moment of the week? Seriously, it was all the details in Saber’s water-walk and sword-strike which made this scene as breathtaking as it turned out! It was supposedly the first time we get to see the true worth of Saber’s heroic spirit so it had to make an impact, and yeah ufotable succeeded in making that, even if it was done by the assistance of burnt cash haha! The conversation between Gilgamesh and Iskander was a great follow up/closure as well, it added needed substance to the pretty outer shell afterward.

1. Jormungand 2:

Jonah LULZ

In a supposed-to-be-depressing settings of war, I find myself loving the smirky spirit Jormungand has. That elated anti-climatic moment where Koko orders her men to empty their weapons and surrender felt awkwardly fun! And then she gives another order Engrish-style as if she’s mocking that moment even more, “Minna DASSHU!!” *lolol* I would be bursting in laughter as well if I was there, damn it looked hella fun! Gotta agree with the soldier too, Koko is a lucky girl to have such an understanding team to command, errr I mean KOKO WA RAKKII GARU w w w

I’m sad *sobs* so many shows I love ended this week:

5. Hunter X Hunter 24:

A Casual Father-Son Chitchat.

Yet what was that tense atmosphere brrrrrrr.. Really, it’s funny how that “fatherly love” Killua was getting creeped me out far more than the whole of Another finale, what an absurd BS that show turned out to be lol.

4. Danshi Koukousei No Nichijou 12 (finale):

ALL OF IT WAS A DREAM EHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!

Seriously, this show couldn’t have possibly ended in a better way than that! Dammit Nichibros, I even chocked in what I was eating from laughter when both this reveal and my favorite punchline in the finale occurred at the same time *so I bet that will make me remember this awful hilarious experience for while* hahahaha.. kuso just how brilliantly we’ve been trolled.

3. Chihayafuru 25 (finale):

2nd season plz ( ; △ ; )

FINALE.OF.THE.SEASON. so I’m craving more Chihaya so onegaiiiiiii!!!

2. Natsume Yuujinchou Shi 13 (finale):

A Family.

It was hard to pick this one, that finale was just so sweet. Natsume’s old  house was full of heartwarming memories, and I especially adored the drawing Nyanko-sensei  found inside one of the closets. The moment where Natsume asked for a second photo with “Nyangoro” had me go awwwwwww so much, too. But it was this, the first time we ever see a family picture with Natsume smiling in it, that had my eyes soak in tears.. ;-;

1. Inu X Boku SS 12 (finale):

I… L-love.. I Love you….

Yeah I’m serious in choosing this as my first, it could be the thousand time I watch a love confession scene and I still fell for that. Because it was so well excuted, they’re meant for each others and it was so passionate. Really, I loved how even when the annoying cliche of having kids *whoever* disturb the supposedly private moment was introduced, Miketsukami just moved on naturally with the flow. It worked. Man, it clicked. Then to give the romance even more substance, we were given a short time-skip to see how Miketsukami turned into such a sweet emotional-being bringing up the subject of kids so soon awwww.. Hey y’all I was shipping Miketsukami X Ririchiyo all the way haha!  Now that my ship sailed way farther than I ever expected, I couldn’t be more proud. ❤

It’s all about laughs *and ice-cream :p* this week:

5. Hunter X Hunter 21:

Pedo face sending chills down my spine..

Molesting Hisoka is nothing new I know, but eh that was still damn creepy! If the look on Hisoka’s face tells us one thing, it would be that we don’t want to ever know what the heck is going on inside his head, except errrrr, maybe fellow pedophiles. Also, I have to feel sorry for kids watching HxH, I mean isn’t this *brrrrrr* a bit too much for them to take?

4. Inu X Boku SS 9:

Game Rules: “speak in a confrontational manner.”

Karuta: “Confrontational?” Watanuki: “Umm, talking badly to each others” Karuta: “ja, Watanuki no.. baka.. if you don’t eat ice-cream with me, kirai” AND THEN KUSOOOO DOKI DOKI SHITERU YO ❤ ❤ ❤

3. Another 9:

ZIPPPP!!

“JUST WTF LOL” describes my reaction best as I was watching this. And how else could I possibly react? First I cracked up laughing as lightning stroke the poor kid. And then, even before I had time to recover, clumsy falling-girl delivered ANAZAA blow. And knocked me down.. so yeah “JUST WTF LOL”. Another might have failed horribly as a horror by now, but it certainly doing a good job as a comedy haha!

2. Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou 9:

Hidenori sets an example of how a real bro would act like!

First, I’m glad that Nichibros finally shone light on the overused dropkick punchlines *that were never fun to start with pffff* in this episode. And to conclude the skit with an original dropkick scenario that IS ACTUALLY FUN, now that’s brilliant! So about that, no, manly tears, hugs, and hand-holding is not gay.. it’s the bro thing to do lol.

1. Natsume Yuujinchou Shi 10:

Drooling Nyanko-sensei MOEEEEEEEE *nosebleed*

Yeah that’s right, Nyanko-sensei drooling over mighty-looking Youkai as if he was craving the most delicious scoop of ice-cream was the most HHNNNNNNGG-inducing moment I had all week. :3

Updating status first, I dropped Mouretsu Pirates after last episode. I got tired of sitting through that non-ending buildup waiting for any real piracy to occur, 7 episodes and we still have nothing yet. I came up with a satisfactory conclusion though: LEGAL PIRACY IS BORING. Bad idea. End of story.

So that’s that, back to my dokidoki business then:

5. Nisemonogatari 7:

“I’m not a friend of justice. I’m an enemy of evil.”

Here I am one of those elitist wannabees who actually enjoyed Kaiki’s looooooooong double-talk nonsense about fakes and reals, except I lost any idea I thought I grasped halfway through.. In the end I did not care whether I got anything at all, just as sweet Senjougahara-san stated what would be considered Top Tier Cool no matter what context it was said in: “I’m not a friend of justice. I’m an enemy of evil.” DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP

4. Hunter X Hunter 20:

“Apologize to Killua!”

Maybe that wasn’t particularly the strongest moment in this week’s HxH, which was probably Killua vs Illumi fight. We had all the oppressive tension built-up there till it became uncomfortable to watch at one point. But it was Gon who broke the tension, and he proved once again that he’s the toughest when it came to psychological battles. He did so with a single, apparently childish line: “APOLOGIZE TO KILLUA!” AND I DARE ANYONE HAD THE GUTS TO  LAUGH. p.s. It’s also obvious now why Hisoka is having the hots for Gon haha, just look at that kawaii angry expression on his face awww ❤

3. Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou 7

“She got me again..”

I admit not being the biggest fan of Nichibros, I don’t even get all the hype for this show. It’s still fun, and I keep watching in anticipation for “that” moment to crack me up every week. Last couple of weeks were not as good as the first episodes so I started to think Danshiko lost its touch, then Literary Girl happened again. She got me again.. Every single line in that skit had me lol, then the series of chain reactions made me burst in laughter ahahahaahaha! And seriously, agreed on saying that there’s no reason to pretend to be cool, let’s show our lame sides right? EXTRA POINTS FOR MORAL VALUES NICHIBROS

2. Chihayafuru 20:

:0

Being the competitive type and all, this came to me as a big twist in Taichi’s character after all hardships he was put through in the previous arcs. And seriously man, Harada-sensei has My Face When Taichi said: “I’m not so much focused on making class A, as I’m focused on becoming someone who doesn’t run away.” HNNNNNGG DAT PRICELESS FACE. Also in related news, did I mention that I’m shipping hopeless Taichi X Chihaya all the way kyaaa~

1. Steins;Gate 25:

EL.PSY.CONGROO.ASDFGHJKL

OMG whaaaat?! I didn’t know there was a new special coming up this week I felt all the dokidoki rushing the moment I heard about it lol. I MEAN SUDDENLY EXPECTATIONS GOING SKY HIGH AND YEAH MAD SCIENTIST HOUOUIN KYOUMA LIVED UP TO THEM. There is no single moment I can pick, all of this episode was a ride of awesome! It reminded me of every single thing I loved about Steins;Gate, it even had me go back to my score in MAL *in the most fangirl mentality I had* and change it from 9 to 10 haha! Until the movie comes out.. El psy congroo.
