A quick little thing. I finished Kantai Collection’s Fall 2017 event. An event that apparently had 60% completion rate for an event of it’s size. And most of those completing it were doing so in ‘Easy’. Not ‘Medium/Normal’ or ‘Hard’. So it is with some delight I can say I completed all four maps of the rather horribly designed event in ‘Normal/Medium’. I got myself a new duck, sub, and two coastal defense ships.
I also wrote something for it, because I couldn’t help but write a little in-headcanon/universe piece.
As for the weekend? I will be going to what seems to be my -last- anime convention for the time being. My seniority at my workplace is high, but not high enough to obtain the dates needed for Anime Expo or Katsucon next year. That and I am saving my vacation hours to go back to the Philippines and Japan next Fall. I am still mulling over wanting to do blog posts, or I’ll just post a gallery of pictures and my overall impressions. With the current structural and operation upheavals at work, I honestly want to relax this weekend and not do anything much.
Anyways, I hope those who follow my blog have a good afternoon, I’m off to do post-event prep and getting my girls back to resource and training runs. And probably pack my bags tonight.
Yet another quick thought due to the multi-country episode. Just something quick per country. Next episode should be back to normal. Should, not counting on it because I will be attending my last Anime USA for the foreseeable future. Gotta love having crap seniority for vacation. /sarc
Just when we thought we have left Shizu, Riku, and Ti behind on that cliff-side camp, we get a whole episode featuring their adventures and why some people just continue to travel. I’m skipping screenshots minus a few for this one. A bit busy now that the holiday season has arrived.
What was it? The saying goes to ‘be weary of an old man in a profession where men die young’. I can only imagine this applies much to this episode’s focus character, Kino’s teacher, Shishou, and her apprentice/traveling companion. Once again, a quick thought. Next week should return to me writing an episode summary as well.
Sleep doesn’t sound too bad either. Art by lilywhite lilyblack on pixiv.
Will be slow in releasing Kino no Tabi (2017) episode 7. Still kinda listing from the food and whatnot from younger sister’s wedding. I know it’s just another excuse but right now suffering through a headache.
We get around to seeing the girl and her Honda Motocompo featured in the opening, the inner picture featuring her origins as a slave. We watch as she perseveres through the Test of Life presented to her in the mountains. A quick cameo by Kino and Hermes, but the focus is on the raven-haired slave girl who finds salvation and a reason to live in the form of her warden and a humble herb that laid waste to man’s hubris.
I watched this episode at work yesterday, and I absolutely loved it. To me it is classic Kino no Tabi, and there is often more than meets the eye to a people than what is presented. How do I know I liked it? I rambled on in the thoughts section. I’ll be working on the top 5 hotties post later.
Once again put on the back burner, because I’m pretty inconsistent with one of my supposed hobbies. This time I finish off this set of episodes, no doubt in another month I’ll be eagerly awaiting the next set of episodes and suddenly find no time for them. Kino no Tabi (2017)’s episode 5 to be done right after this, and next week I’ll put some thoughts into Girl’s Last Tour.
Kino no Tabi -the Beautiful World- the Animated Series (Episode 4)
Since mass combat rolls didn’t need me, a ground pounder, while starfighters and starships in orbit are doing things, I decided to watch (with lowered volume) to watch Kino no Tabi’s fourth episode. This writeup was then delayed for a few days. Thank Goodness I don’t have a predetermined release schedule.
Space Battleship Yamato 2202: Warriors of Love (Episodes 3&4)
This has been on the back burner for nearly a month now, and I apologize for the lateness. Now with the next film of the release schedule
coming soon released two weeks ago, I need to get this over with. Not that Yamato is bad, but I’ve been lazy. Episode 5&6 will be done within a week.
