So, as you know, on this show I am pretty much meh. Thôugh I am sure there are a host of character obsessed fan girls that would disagree with me, and that's okay. It takes all kinds. I still believe there is too much character focus and not enough plot. The Iwatobi swim team is basically used for comic banter and happy talk. You hardly ever even seem them in the pool. I really really want to quit this show. I mean look at this, they only talked about coming from swimming. We didn't actually see them swim. They will waste a whole episode worrying about Nagisa and cutting back and forth to Rin, Sousuke, and Momo actually at the pool. The end. Time wasted....
Who cares if he has to leave swim club? He never swims anyway. None of them do. This isn't a sports anime anymore. It makes me sad when I think about how much I was looking forward to it....looking forward to something happening....like a re-match between swim clubs, or they fight to go to nationals. Free has the opposite problem as Kuroko no Basket, which I happen to like more. Kuroko no Basket has very little character development, but has enough sports rivalries and such to keep me engaged. It's hard for me to distinguish characters by personality. Rather, I usually do it by hair color and look of the character. But at least sports are involved. Though I am glad Rei actually helped out in this episode. Especially, since they usually treat him like garbage. Oh Rei, only Nagisa and I appreciate you!!
Oh my goodness, they actually remembered a Nationals?!! Does this mean they will actually swim sometime soon?? I doubt it.....
Kuroshitsuji: Book of Circus Episode 6
More suffering Ciel, how could I not be pleased?! Ohh! A William and Sebby fight! Be still my heart! Are you trying to make up for the fact that I had to watch Free!? So, you are throwing something wonderful at me? I really do appreciate that. Aww, poor Ciel has a fever and they are using it as an excuse to give us flashbacks. Do people really have flashbacks in their sleep when they are sick? Perhaps we do? Maybe it is a more natural thing than I give it credit for. Sometimes it's hard to be alone because any and all of the embarrassing things we've ever done come flooding back to our memories.
I love you most when you are like this, Sebastian. I love how far you are willing to go and what you are willing to do. Dirty and yet unsoiled, like a true anti-hero. You are almost on par with Johji Koizumi. almost. I think the only big appeal of Johji over Sebastian is how far Johji goes with no supernatural abilities yet he can make you believe he has them if he wanted to. His only power is his charm. Sebastian is like loving Superman -- an entity that is already above us, while loving Johji is like Batman -- a regular person with only his wealth to recommend him but manages what seems like magic. I just happen to favor Batman over Superman, but in the end, they are both good. I am sorry Ciel is back in the mansion. I wanted to see him suffer more.
Oh well, at least I can look forward to the aftermath that's coming in the next episode!
Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun Episode 2
Mikoshiba, I both love and hate you. He is strangely adorable like Nozaki said but I think I would lose against his personality and just get angry. It's cute when you aren't subjected to it and just watch it from afar. He ahould really think before he talks. I really like Seo. I think that's the kind of high school girl I would be....ummm....or not......Nozaki totally fell into her pace without warning. Oh wow! I wish I could sing like that! Go for it, Seo! Okay, I think I am unfortunately a lot like Seo.
I am liking this show a lot!!
Baby Step Episode 21
Good luck, Maruo! I hope you don't lose in the first round.....but well, it's pretty likely that you will. Nabae is a lot like Maruo, so he will be tough to beat. I will not be faked out by the first point either show. He has a good chance of losing. I wonder why Takuma wouldn't play a practice game against him? I think he is finally seeing Maruo as a rival and doesn't want him to learn from anymore of his moves. However, it's just small conjecture at this point.
I am glad Maruo thought of the fact that Nabae is studying him. I was worried he wouldn't pick up on that for some reason. It will be cool to see how the match unfolds.
Free Eternal Summer Episode 6
Oh how cute! They are pretending this episode is going to have something to do with swimming when clearly it's just going to be more character development. I don't know how people stand this show....I don't even want to write about this show anymore. maybe I should pick up when I am in a better mood and instead watch something more fun....it is nice knowing that Rei has a hairless chest. Ai-chan is annoying. Though I did think the brothers with Gou was cute. Haven't seen Sousuke in a while, not that I am complaining because I am clearly not. Oh my gosh, they are actually swimming! I am indeed shocked. After 5 episodes of absolutely nothing leading absolutely nowhere. Finally, we seem them swimming.
Ok, Rei hate...we didn't get to see his race!!! You bastards!! Though I am happy he won. You guys are still jerks to Rei. He gets seconds so they can expAnd the Makoto and Haru race!! I wanted to see Rei's race!!! They could have at least given me that!!
Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Episode 5
Love Love Love Jupiter....and Usagi is so much cuter in Japanese than she ever was in English. I should have known. Language really does alter personality. The characters I enjoyed as a child seem so different to me in Japanese, but the change is for the better. I doubt they would or could alter the characters personalities in any great way. Therefore it has to be the difference in dubs and subs. Those subtle nuances that cannot be replicated. That's why subs are superior to dubs. The dub is a completely different story in some strange ways. Toru Honda, one of my all time favorite characters is extremely different in the dub. She's annoying. I didn't get through five minutes. I would have missed an amazing anime if I didn't see the sub first. That's why I like subs. Dubs have their usefulness and purpose, just know that you are always missing something.
I am glad Jupiter is tearing down Nephlyte and all but please please do not skip the Nephlyte Naru love story....please please don't skip it. It was so beautiful!! That's all I ask!!
Dramatical Murder Episode 8
Awesome! Amazing! Loved it! Loved watching Aoba go inside Noiz and fix him.
