Katanagatari ~ Ep. 7 ~ Nisioisin, YYYYYYYY?!?!?! T_T

Well, to be honest, I wouldn’t have this story any other way than how the author has written it. Shichika was able to fight against the true “Japan’s Strongest Swordsman”, his sister, who was given a satisfying role and death while having one of the better, nicely balanced complexities in character over the entire cast. Still, it was sad to see her die, even though that made her happy…cuz Shichika lost his sis! How can I not be sad for him?! *cries for Shichika* TT___________TT

Getting back to more of that later, for me, this is undoubtedly the best episode of them all and it won’t be topped until probably the last one. The previous episodes I’m more than content with but episode 7 (argh, this number!) draws us back to the near-start of this sword hunt, piles some family drama and angst on it, and partially concludes the Yasuri-family business’s way of doing things with what else other than SIBLING FIGHT!! (omg, we actually got action in this one). …And then topped off with a sense of utter helplessness cuz “THIS IS HOW IT WAS DONE IN THE OLD DAYS, KIDS!” kind of deal.

Uargh. *sniff* I think I’m going to be a crying mess while referring back to that all throughout the post so mind as well start.

*sniff* T_T

Brief Impressions: Fairy Tail ~ Ep. 31, 32

Double-episode late post for Loke’s mini-arc. ^^

Overall, the anime didn’t strike me as emotionally as the manga did (I guess it’s because they filled in everything with the voices and the music so I didn’t have to imagine it and make myself cry) but I was very glad how everything was executed close to the original plot.

So I’ll try to make this quick since there isn’t a lot to say outside my thoughts on certain things. That’d be summarizing. Bleh. :P

Catch-up Post: Fairy Tail, Working!!, Durarara!!

What Xiao was like for a while during her break.

Tired, sick, emotionally-drained, pretty much Izumi minus the number of days she didn’t take a bath. Can’t understand how this woman lives without it. *shudder*

So yes, um, if they’re page links on the bottom, this is going to be a little long. No duh. I’m covering 8 episodes. :P

But nah, it’s nothing really more than some quick overall thoughts of what I wanted to post and several quick highlights of each episode. Also, in advance, I apologize for the poor quality of my, er, writing since it’s been a while that I’ve worked on a post.

In another note, I think I’m on the edge of…well, I don’t want to say I’m dropping DRRR!! cuz I’m not. There is just less interest in blogging it due to the anime being last-seasoned (aka still good, just not as fresh) and my recent break from routine. Seriously, if I don’t follow by some set schedule, it’s hard for me to get back into it.
As of now, I’m not sure what I plan to do. Best option is to review episodes in the format that I’m using for this post. Quick thoughts, then screencap moments. Otherwise, I might just stop it all completely and save end thoughts for my season wrap-up post. Again, I’m still enjoying the show but even the plot has been winding down in getting me to feel thrilled like how it was at the beginning of winter season.

I’m also busy with other stuff so we’ll see. Just now, it isn’t my priority anymore, that’s all. :/

K, so here:

Pg 2 – Fairy Tail ep 27-29.
Pg 3 – Working!! ep 05-06.
Pg 4 – Durarara!! ep 16-18.

Brief Impressions: Fairy Tail ~ Ep. 25

Ah, I really had to do a review for this ep since it includes one of the few Gray-involved fights I like. I mean, I like them all regardless of who’s fighting who as long as the person I want to win ends up on top but Juvia was in this one! I love Juvia~! <3

Haha, yea, quite a few crappy quality screencaps (cuz it was the only one available for download when I was on two days ago) and lazy comments in sequential order but hell, I'm tired and still have hwk to do so I'll just keep this fun. :P

Also, a bit of a SPOILER WARNING! for those you who haven’t read up past this arc yet.

Durarara!! ~ Ep. 5 ~ Tiny lil’ BL tease never hurts anyone. 8D

Haha, but I prefer BFFs more. Aww gawd, did I mention how much I love these two always together?

As friends, of course and maybe a little shounen-ai for some laughs, but I haven’t had such a snuggable boy BFF pair to fawn over for so long. In fact, there’s such a lack of it that the only male BFF pair I can actually remember is Teito and Mikage from 07-Ghost (WAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!! Mikage~ ;___;).

So yea, WE NEED MOAR CUTE MALE BFFs, WHO’S WIT MEH?! >xD

Haha, ok, back to srs bznz, I’m shortening this one to make it easier on the eyes. Good thing, too, cuz I really shouldn’t be making posts this long if there are subs that can explain it anyway. :P

Anyways, I’ve also read some MAJOR spoilers (pretty sure a couple have also hit that jackpot if you follow the LJ comm.) so yea, every DRRR!!! post from now has SPOILER WARNING!!, ok? I really don’t want to hold back stuff I already know cuz it restrains my writing. Even if things are not that relevant yet, just giving everyone a heads up so no one chews my head off for ruining their suspense. But really, who can resist spoilers? Aha~

…So, we were talking about BFFs. Did I mention I joined a community for MikadoxKida, too? xD;

Durarara!! ~ Ep. 4 ~ Are underground doctors this cute?


SERIOUSLY.

If all of them were as cute as Shinra, I wouldn’t mind going into the black market. lololol XDDD

Well, shorter post this week since I’m still working on another post but figured I should get this one out first. Not a lot of stuff I need to go over since Shinra explained Celty’s (I’m not sure if this the correct spelling for her name but I’m sticking with it since it makes more sense to me :P) background quite straightforwardly. So yea, plot didn’t move any forward, just stuff being revealed but no questions answered.

WARNING: BEWARE OF SPOILERS! Well, it’s not new news if you looked on Wiki but for those who don’t want to be spoiled, I suggest you don’t read under the first screencap anyways.
