Shuumatsu no Izetta: Episode 8 Train of Thought

Image result for shuumatsu no izetta

Firstly, this anime has SUCH an interesting plot to it, and actually touches on how tragic it could be. Simply put, it’s how World War II would pan out if there were somehow a witch thrown into the mix that was willing to help defend and protect one country. For a proper plot summary, read more about it here cuz this post is gonna be me rambling on about the most recent episode I just saw not five minutes ago okay bye.

[Spoiler Alert]

THIS EPISOOOOODE- Oh my gosh

So this guys:

Ricelt Ricelt, was like my favourite character besides Bianca. And for some bizarre reason, he decided to meet up with the stupid Germanian spy that got the POOR IZETTA FANBOY SOLDIER KILLED UGH in Elystadt (I most likely spelled that wrong. Scratch that- I did spell it wrong until I had to check.) AND THEN AND THEN they have him meet Bianca and Lotte-chan and he starts to become their friend and instantly he and Bianca become a ship for me. But then they have to go and give him a tragic ending EVEN THOUGH this episode was going sooooo well until that ending old castle raid mission. I had such hope for him meeting the “good guys” and sympathizing, which they totally tricked us with cuz he did meeting the people of this country, but but I wanted him to stay “evil”/on his country’s side and HE DID, but the whole situation they put him in was just the worst and and and-

I don’t knooooow. WHY’D HE HAVE TO DIE.

Stop killing characters I like please.

OH MY GOSH DON’T YOU DARE KILL BIANCA TT^TT

Siiiigh that’s all I have the energy to type out. Now to go watch some other anime and try to mourn his loss later.

Hotarubi no Mori e

So I’ve finally gotten more so into anime movies (like, singular, independent, make sense on their own sort of movies unlike the thousands of pokemon, beyblade, dbz, and many others I’ve seen so far) and this one just kept sort of coming up when I searched for something to watch. That’s why when I realized I had nothing to do for a few hours, I decided to watch it after all.

[Spoiler Alert!]

I reaaaally liked it, but I can’t say I’m too thrilled with the ending even though it was soooo expected. But I wish there had been a cute end credit scene that either made it look like Gin wasn’t *really* gone, or something like that with his presence still watching Hotaru OR if they showed us Hotaru a few years later still remembering Gin ❤

Also, stupid human child sneaking into a spirit festival and tripping all over the place to chase down some chick- like, bacha, it is freaking midnight and you are about nine years old- why aren’t you home?! Why aren’t your parents looking for you? And bloody WHY are you chasing down some girl in the forest?!? This dumb prick is the reason Gin turned to sparkles 😦 Even though it was bound to happen anyways…there’s only so long that guy could go without hugging Hotaru. (At least he kinda kissed her.)

^Possible thoughts going through Gin’s head at this moment:
I Well, crap. I restrained myself for so long only to be touched by a GUY?! Wtf.
II I am so sparkly. Damn.
III I might as well have REALLY kissed Hotaru (five seconds ago).
IV Dang it, Mountain God! Really, I have to die in an explosion of sparkles?! Couldn’t I have just faded away peacefully instead of having my dignity fade away like it is right now??

Or something like that ^_^

But still, this was cute, and now I’m looking for some more to watch. Who would’ve thought I’d watch this and cry just a little? ❤

Anime Recommendation Accomplishment

Yesterday I managed to finally complete a task I have been working on on and off for more than two years (or has it been three..?) and the reality of the situation is hitting me now.

So regardless of how I am completely aware that my brother isn’t an anime fanatic like me, he does watch the odd one or two anime. Which is why whenever I fall in love with one, I always tell him if I think he’ll like it or not when I rave about it to him (because that shall inevitably happen). Aaaand so I started Fairytail like two years ago and was head over heels for it. I watched nothing but that anime for most of the winter break and I almost caught up to the show. (Quite the feat considering how it had 175 episodes out then. This is also when Fairytail was put on hiatus. When I found out that, I abruptly stopped at somewhere around ep 90-something.)

Anyways, ever since I started it, I told my brother, Que, to watch it. But he’s neverrr, not once, tried it! Sure, it being Fairytail, he’s heard of it, and scene pictures of it, but he hasn’t tried it at all.

Yesterday he started it. And he likes it!

There’s a huge deal of satisfaction involved when a suggestion or recommendations is taken both seriously and then becomes loved by the one you recommended it to. Which is the mellow version of how smug and accomplished I feel right now :3

It might even be possible that once we start discussing the episodes he’s seen, I’ll want to revisit this anime and continue off where I was. But, gosh, that’s a looot to catch up on…at least it’s better than DC, huh?

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei- Discussion & Gushing on Episode VII

[Spoilers will be present in this post!]
You have been warned.

First thing to gush about- Ze Crimson Prince! (Ep VII- The Appearance of the Red Head)
From the most recent installment in Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei~

So this guy FINALLY goddamn had a cameo after SEVEN episodes of waiting for his badass arrival! All these red heads from this anime season are pretty awesome. Yeah, I’m talking to you, Sora ❤

But this is about THIS prince <333

Dat Blood Red Uniform.

I saw him in the theme song and instantly knew this guy was going to be my favorite character. I have hence been waiting desperately for his appearance in the show!

And after every disappointment so far, Alya and I plotted gruesome murders of the creators of this show because 1. Red Head wasn’t in the show yet, and 2. Tatsuya hasn’t shown us his epic fighting skills, not all of them, and not a single fight has occured that has pushed him to his limits.

But now that the Crimson Prince is here…that may change very, veryyy soon.

Especially since they just showed that this guy is from another magical high school, and a very…morbid? Realistic? Deathly? Dark? one at that.

I mean- Red Uniform. The first scene he’s shown in, he’s drenched in a pool of blood! That’s why his uniform is red, I tell ya =/

But, gooosh, they showed him next, in the shower- but course they didn’t show all of that, they just showed his wet feet, and then his wet head. But he was shown wrapped up in just a towel after that. Which was when he did a HAIR FLIP THINGIE. Damn.

He swooshed his hair back dramatically, discussing their rivals.

Rivals obviously being Tatsuya and Miyuki!

Ah, right, I said ‘their’. There was this little vampire Seedot present too. This shortay.

Shortie Vampire Seedot

And now, here’s a seedot for comparison’s sake.

Seedot (Pokemon, Gen II, I believe.)

Anyhoo, I think some background is needed.

Mr. Vampire Seedot and Cool Evil Villain were discussing the news of how there was a bomb attack at Mahouka Koukou (Tatsuya’s magic school.) and how it’s rumored to have been caused by terrorists (that was not the case at all, but just a cover up. It’s amazing how terrorists are used as a cover up story in a fictional story xD ). And that’s when Red Head asked if their ‘rivals’ were safe. Which they were. And that’s when the end credit thing scene ended with the appearance of the anime’s logo, exceeept it wasn’t the actual logo! It was in the same design, color, font, and everything, but it said something different. It said “Nine School Tournament.” Which implies that there may just be a contest between nine magic high schools and two confirmed schools participating would be Tatsuya’s and this Red Head’s! That would also make us audience fantasize about the fight scene between Tatsuya and Red Head in the theme song to occur in that next contest- when they both probably make it to some finals of a magic duel contest. Or something of the sort.

They both have guns too ❤

Now one last picture before I move on…

Proceed to drool?

Now, other stuff that must be addressed in this episode!

1. The appearance of the Evil Yotsuba Aunt;

So her face is revealed to us after seeing just a quick glance at her physique when Tatsuya and Miyuki were discussing her some three episodes back. She looks so MUCH like Miyuki! Her hair does, as does her facial features- but those EYES. So evil, and neon PURPLE. Mesmerizing, and yet the kind of eyes that send shivers down your spine. The kind you know it’ll be a very bad move to get on the wrong side of, and to anger. Those kind of eyes.

Pluus she mentioned how Tatsuya’s Miyuki’s guardian. And on hearing that a few theories and ideas popped into my head.

One, Tatsuya’s actually a few years older than Miyuki, a twenty year old, and was adopted to protect her and serve as her body guard. I don’t think this is the case, but something else it, since the age difference isn’t something I expect from this anime, nor something I can see them doing.

Yet this is what I think happened. Two, Tatsuya’s as old as he’s portrayed to be, yet joins the military for whatever family reasons at a very young age. After proving his aptitude with his fighting magic, and sheer intelligence, he ascends the ranks at an alarming speed. It’s then when the Yotsuba family realize they need a body guard for Miyuki, possibly after a breech in security or an attack attempt/assassination attempt on her. Either way, they are somehow directed towards hiring one from the army, and after finding out about Tatsuya’s age and his skill, they adopt him.

They then, three, either decide that it’d be safest for Miyuki to go into hiding- no, wait. I think Miyuki herself decides this with Tatsuya after falling for him, and they run away, trying to hide their strong affiliations with this family, and to try having normal lives.

Or four, Tatsuya convinces the family that it’d be in the best intrest of the family if they let him take care of Miyuki by himself, away from the family, and under the pretense that she isn’t an ojou-sama.

Either way, they end up together, living a life their own, until now, where the Yotsuba family is thinking of intervening…

AND- that does however confirm one thing to me. The two really aren’t related. Or at least, that’s my theory.

2. Tatsuya finally acted awkward!

Near the end, he put his hand on Miyuki’s lower back. And he did so suuuper awkwardly to me. I thought he was going to put his arm around her waist, but he just didn’t. Too romantic? Perhaps…But then in the next scene, he  was directing her to walk away with him, and so I though he should’ve done so by putting his  hand on her upper back, on her shoulder blade region. Very normal. Usually a very authoritative and protective thing to do- not romantic. But he didn’t. Even attempting to grab her ass would’ve been more normal! (And he would’ve swooned.) But he just rested his entire hand on her lower back instead. What a Casanova.

3. This anime stole my AAA! Or at least copied it! =Y

They stole my AAA- The Awesome Asian Alliance- and made a carbon copy of it as the “Great Asian Alliance”. Pfft, the GAA. Grr. It’s MY super hero league, not yours! Damn them.

4. I sort of forgive them.

Not for stealing my League’s name. Nuh-uh. But for making us wait so looong for an epic fight sequence involving Tatsuya at his best. Granted, he wasn’t at his best, but he still actually used his gun to shoot someone, and more than ONCE.

Plus there was loads of cool swords action from Kirihara, the Magic Kendo Club Capt. I seriously forgave them just because I prefer the sword action over the guns.

And that brings me to a discussion, an announcement that is about another anime.

On second thought, I’ll just post that as a seperate post so as not to merge these two different anime together.

Be back soon~

*poof*

 

Just CIE Things- and Distractions.

So.

CIE. A-levels. At university level. Eeps.

To say the least.

But I’m in the middle of my exams, and I’d like to add a few things I am currently obsessed with in different amounts. Varying from using day and night, to just to pass the time. Precious time that should not be wasted at that…

So here we go.

Anime (of course, the largest category);

I Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei

  Genre- Magic, Fantasy, Action (and yet uptil now there’s been a SEVERE lack of it on Tatsuya’s part!! =Y ), School Life, Comedy, Romance, futuristic, Sci-Fi, Technology.  Some incest jokes, and implied incest.

II Black Bullet  

 Genre- Action (duh), has a loli (not a genre, but still must be said for some people.), some Comedy, Thriller, Post Apocalypse, End of the World Scenario, Sci-fi, Futuristic.

III Akuma no Riddle

^Whoa, that’s a huge pic =P

Genre- Yuri (lesbian content)(so far, soft, and not anything vulgar. Not even kissing so far, but it’s only been 6 episodes.), Action, Psychological, School Life, Assassins.

IV Yu-Gi-Oh!

Which one?? The FIRST one. And no, this isn’t a nostalgic I’m-gonna-watch-old-childhood-stuff-again at all. I never saw it as a kid. So on the insistence of Zaid, and many many Duel Monsters vs Yu-Gi-Oh! debates, I decided to give it a shot. No picture, because, ew, animation from 2000.

Side note V- HunterxHunter

I am now finally up to date on HxH~! Woot Woot! Only problem is, now I’m dying for the new eps *-*

On to other stuff now…Like,

VI A Korean Drama- The Bride of the Century

And now, the best scene that had me die of laughter-

Peeing Granny

^The scene where Kang Ju’s Granny peed on Doo Rim~! xD

VII Teen Wolf

Sorry, but it’s exams time. And the theme song never fails to make me burst into laughter. I mean, Scott McCaw, the flying werewolf. It’s just too damn swagtastic.

But the stories all about Stiles now <3333 AND they added Japanese stuff to it! Like characters, mythological creatures, and even the Yakuza. I mean, it’s got the Nine Tailed Fox in it. #Naruto #Kitsune

VIII New Girl

Yeaahh…I never liked it, but Exam Hype has crippled my brain and tricked it into finding it amusing currently. Weird.

IX Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt 23!

Another TV show I started, and it’s funny, despite the  jokes being just a tad too adult for my taste.

And the rest are other anime I may be starting soon, and what not.

Like Durarara!, Dragonar Academy, Letter Bee Academy, and others I’ve forgotten right now. Oi, I’m sleeeepy. Excuse enough.

So that’s my so far distraction list! I may have forgotten a few, but oh wyell. I’ll add more if they arise. I hope note. I need to study all that I can now.

Ciao~

MovieReview- Avalon High (2010)

Alas, yet another Disney film! And I haven’t even gotten started on Frozen yet…

AvalonHighAd_low

So, I saw Avalon High just now. Like just JUST now. It took forever to load online. I couldn’t find the dvd anywhere, but now I wanna get a copy of it, since I liked it that much.

I honestly found out about this movie cuz of Castle, the tv show. Since Alexis, or the actress Molly Quin(n?) is in it, and in this one, and I wikipedia-ed her to see what else she was in…I came across this movie.

I’s surprised I hadn’t already come across this movie about a month before it’s release though. It’s got the Arthurian legends mixed up in it, Disney, and high school. How could I NOT have seen this movie?! It’s so something I would watch!

If only there were more cute/cuter guys in it too =/ Then it’d be complete. But still, it’s cute. I like it. I’m not sure if it qualifies for a TimelessMovie, but it’s still something you should watch if you’re into the whole Arthurian legends. And Merlin. If you like and watch Merlin, this might be a kiddie version of that. What did you expect, it’s Disney.

Spoiler time!

I sooo knew it that Ali/apparently spelled “Allie” (it seems SO weird writing that down and actually talking about someone else…) would be King Arthur, I knew it, I knew it! And the second that teacher with the limp asked wistfully to see the real prophecy in the Bear of the Round Table or whatever the real thing was called, it was right there in the open. Hey, plot twist, he’s the bad guy! Only, it’s not so much of a plot twist since it was just so OBVIOUS. Bleh. The only thing about this movie that didn’t make much sense was the evil-but-really-not-so-evil step brother of Will’s. I mean, he was mean, and bullied, and pranked and hated Will. That’s why they thought he was the actual reincarnation of the Royal Evil Step-brother. But in the midst of them battling the reaaaal actual bad guy, he just gets away with his lame assed “Oh, I was trying to protect Will” excuse. Sure, he was in that particular scene, but what about everywhere else? The just transformed him into a sudden impromptu good guy. It would have just made more sense to label him as the cliched misunderstood teenager, but nooo, they just had to make him a good guy who just happened to have a change of heart. And that change of heart too? It just get’s ignored and skipped over with all the other action packed halabaloo so as to make even LESS sense than before! Psshaw, they really had no idea some literature nerd was going to go into the inner being of this movie now did they? If only they had thought that…

Spoilers and rant now over-

It’s pretty evident what this movie is about, and the plot line just so predictable, especially if you really are acquainted with the Arthurian legends even a wee bit, then you will have no trouble figuring it all out. So just watch and see, is Arthur really the one you think he may be?

*ending all recent posts with questions cuz I’m coolio like that. And I’m running out of sign offs.*

Zero no Tsukaima~

Ze Familiar of Zero!

zeronotsukaima_01

One of my faaavourite anime that I started when I was in eighth grade ^_^

zero-no-tsukaima

[I started watching anime a lot when I was in eighth grade- that’s when I got hooked onto it! And that is also the year in which I saw the most anime I had ever seen =) ]

Okaay, so Zero no Tsukaima is a wonderous fantasy anime with just the right amount of comedic romance to easily fall into my ‘Must watch’ anime lists =3

Zero_no_Tsukaima_3

 

^See what I mean by comedy? Well, I didn’t know these terms before when I watched it the first time, but Louise (ze young tiny pink haired lass) is a tsundere (did I spell is right?? I think so..) which would be Japenese/Otaku talk? for a character that rarely expresses their love or like for anything, always get embarrassed when it’s brought up, and contradict themselves about it- that is, deny they like/love that thing/person. So if Louise is a tsundere, and falls for Saito (cuute coolio Japenese guy in a blue hoodie), then she’s going to blush furiously all the time, stutter, get embarrassed, and deny everrr liking him, and say she hates him. But she doesn’t =)

I mean, lookie, isn’t Hiraga

 

 

Saito cuute?! He is one of my favourite characters, so bear with all these pictures of him now ^_^

Hiraga_Saito_School_by_fedyfausto

 

^This last one’s a deviant art picture, fan art, by a fedyfaust, I think. Cheers to him/her for making it! =)

Louise also has one of the damn coolest names possible. She easily wins Ze Coolest Full Name fictional Character Award from me, at least. Her full name is- wait for it while I google it, yes it IS in fact that long- Louise Françoise de la Baume le Blanc de la Vallière~! Mhmm, best name ever, am I right? xD

Ok, now this anime is the story of how Louise, bullied and cruelly nicknamed ‘Zero Louise’ by her classmates since her success rate with all spells and anything associated with magic has been, well, zero, gets fed up with all the teasing and decided that for her Second Year at school for mages exam, is going to summon the most beautiful, most graceful, and strongest familiar ever. And that’s where the name comes in, cuz she summons- The Familliar of Zero!

Now, utterly and completely humiliated since she summoned a mere human instead of something spectacular like a dragon, or a griffin, or a Charmeleon on Steroids (I kid you not, there is in fact one.) she summons something with even less magical potential than hers- a human, which has none!

kkkkk

 

^Man, Kirche should’ve hit the B button while she still could…wait, I’m actually veryyyy glad she didn’t. I mean, how many of use really want to see a Charmander on steroids? O.o

But Louise still completes the ceremony to make a binding contract with her new familiar. Here’s  a snapshot of that. Cuz if it’s any sort of magical ceremony- there’s GOTTA be a kiss involved. It’s only expected of a Japanese anime. But come on, what about the girl who had the Charmeleon on Steroids?! Did she kiss that fat lizard??! Ewwww!

images (8)

 

At this point in the story, I should explain what happened. Louise summoned Saito from Japan, Earth and he got transported to this new world- Helgia or something of the sort- and this country, with it’s fabulous two moons eternally apart of the skyline (one huge blue, a smaller cute pink. Subtle message?). Now Saito, Japanese teenager, only knows Japanese. These people are speaking something else. And Louise, when having to deal with him flipping out- seeing that Charmeleon on Steroids going to freak the best of us, right? And two moons in the sky when there’s supposed to be one sun? Although that’s a minor detail to the damn lizard on fire.- and screaming, Louise expertly and maturely decides that this is the perfect time to test a silence spell, and keeping her zero percent success rate intact, she somehow manages to have him speak and understand their language (which, because it’s an anime, shall obviously be Japanese, despite where in space they are. I mean, even the Namakians knew Japanese…They should’ve at least explained it, like in Doctor Who..).

BUT- plot twist/Some Spoilers- Louise doesn’t suck at magic! Whaaat? And Saito IS one legendary familiar- Gandalfr (yep, he’s a Gandalf with an R =/ ) but I won’t explain. That you’ll have to understand by watching the anime =D It’s really amazing, and totally must be tried out if you like fantasy, magic, romance, comedy, feels, war, and sooome ecchi =S (I hate ecchi, but it’s there…here, at least as far as I’ve seen so far, they just show loads of cleavage…so ecchi related to boobs, nothing else, thank god. So far >.> )

images (5)

I still haven’t finished it? What-whyyy? Because, it’s got four seasons (the author died after that so it ended sooner than it otherwise would have.), and I watched up til somewhere in the middle or beginning of the third, then dropped it, for whatever reasons back then. Now, I watched from season 1 and 2, all in a looong go, (a few days, please. Not a marathon.) and now I’ve stopped cuz I got sick and did something stupid, anime related stupid, before I started off with season 3.

Here’s some cute fan art again >w<

^(Kirche should be properly dark skinned >.> What’s with changing her complexion?!)

Although this was probably a bit more than a week ago, I never got round to posting all this on Zero no Tsukaima…I was reaaaaally hooked on watching my anime rather than write about it… oopsies =P (then I also started a new anime, not a rewatch like this one- Hunter x Hunter, the 2011 remake, and I wanted to write an initial take on that first…so I did, but then I couldn’t post any of the pictures, for some reason they weren’t uploading, and that infuriated me to no end. Which put me in a foul mood to actually get round to posting this =P)

And here would be a few more pics cuz I did download and save them, so hence I must post them =3

images (7)^Hahahahahahahaha xD See, Louise refers to Saito as a dog and initially treats him as a pet since he’s her familiar- which is usually a magical animal- and this is from one of the endings, where Saito the dog reaches a paw out to his lovely and dazzling little master =3

^I ship Saito and Louise, they’ve had my support from the beginning =) Saito x Louise ❤

saito

 

^This is actually a super important scene in the anime. It’s in a boat. And it’s-spoiler- where Saito confesses! ❤

Ok, that’s all mah pics, and now I gotta update a bit more on what I’ve been doing with anime ^_^ Since these winter holidays I’ve been doing nothing but watch anime =P

And there’s still that thing I did when I was sick yesterday…

Should explain that now. But Fiiiiirst, finish that Hunter x Hunter post! Since all these pictures were uploaded with no problems, those should too now ^_^ Wish me luuuck =3

Buh-byyye~!

ps.
if you thought that was a lot, wait til you see how much I’ve got to type for HxH…I mean, it was supposed to be a first reaction kinda thing, but now I’ve seen the first 80 episodes, I’ve got a looot more to write about =)
