Re: Zero Ep. 16: Play by Play

“The greed of a pig” Subaru is at his lowest and most desperate point right now. His true colors are starting to show thru and it is truly amazing. This episode has a very heavy theme of negotiation and desperation. Let’s begin… Subaru is walking back to the Crusch mansion, walking thru the gate he…

Re: Zero Ep. 15: Play by Play

“The outside of madness” This episode was amazingly directed and animated. The ending credits was fresh and so impacting. Let’s begin. Subaru is standing at the gate of the mansion, struck with horror. He sees Rem, dead with a knife in her back. He begins to search around for anyone still alive. He finds Ram,…

“The sickness called despair” The most accurate thing I can say about Subaru right now is mentally unstable and disgusting. Right now at this point in the story he’s acting like an obsessed boyfriend who thinks that his girl is powerless without him. I am blown away by the development for Subaru! Let’s begin… Subaru,…

Re: Zero Ep. 13: Play by Play

“Self-proclaimed Knight Natsuki Subaru” A very impactful episode indeed. The decisions Subaru made this episode will hang heavy on his conscious. Let’s get into it. We pick up where we left off, in the ballroom discussing more about the next ruler. We see that Felt is not too pleased with Reinhard about dressing her up…

What I’ll be watching this season

Now I know I’m a tad late with this but regardless I still wanted to make one. I haven’t had much time to be able to watch anime lately and because of my college classes starting back up in August, I might not be able to post as often. So I’m not sure if I’ll…

Re: Zero Ep. 12: Play by Play

“Return to the Capital” All I can say about this episode is HOLY SHIT! So many characters came back from previous episodes, we got ourselves a trap, and a crazy twist at the very end of the episode. Let’s jump in shall we? We begin with rows of children doing exercises with Subaru. They are…

A Certain Magical Index: Ground Level

I’ve been putting off this show for quite some time now. I know it is a great show, I’ve heard nothing but great things about it. I finally have time to start this show and hopefully I’ll be able to finish this in a timely manner. From the first 4 episodes, not much has been…

Boku no Hero Academia Ep. 10: Play by Play

“Encounter with the unknown” Straight out the gate we begin right where we left off last episode. Aizawa Sensei leaves all the students with Thirteen while he goes forward to fight all the evil villains. Now at first you might think that being so outnumbered will have an effect on him… think again. He manages…

Re: Zero Ep. 11: Play by Play

“Rem” So… first of all… Subaru has acknowledged Rem as best girl behind Emilia! Just wanted to make that clear… I agree with him 100%. We are shown the origin of both Rem and Ram. Born as twins, the custom among demons is to kill them. While laying on the podium, the elder of the…

Re: Zero Ep. 10: play by play

“Fanatical methods like a demon” What happened? Where am I? “Oh… another unfamiliar ceiling.” Any body else get that Neon Genesis Evangelion reference? Subtle but nice. Subaru wakes up in yet another new bed. Beatrice, Rem, and Emilia all work together to help save Subaru from dying (again). He is saved, which means all his…

Re: Zero Ep. 9: play by play

I’m so upset with the ending of the episode! This was such a good episode. Lots of development is happening for a lot of characters. So this episode continues with Subaru and Rem going to he village to get supplies. During his time there, he makes sure to let each member of the village touch…

My weekend manga haul

So this weekend I found out there was a half priced books store near my parents house. I originally went there to look at cheap books about Chinese economy and partical physics but saw a huge manga selection. I’m sorry… I couldn’t control myself! Here are the volumes I picked up. A. I. love you,…
