Three Episode Rule: Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These (Episode 2: The Battle of Astarte)

So, with last week’s episode, I know a lot of purists are not liking the new series for many reasons. Voice acting, ship design, bad CGI, bishiefication of the main characters and so on. And to be quite honest I’m one of them. I know one person who is okay with it but has issues with the franchise as a whole for reasons I’ve not asked about. But continuing on I think it isn’t that bad of a show so far.

Three Episode Rule: Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These (Episode 1: In the Eternal Night)

Seventeen years after the last episode of the Legend of the Galactic Heroes Gaiden OVAs were released, Production I.G. has a new animated adaptation of the long running and well-loved space opera written by Yoshiki Tanaka. I’ve watched all of the OVA, movies, and side stories, and now we shall see if this new series would convey the same sense of grandeur and splendor as the original.

Girls und Panzer das Finale 1

Roughly two years since the film and five years since the end of the main series, Girls und Panzer releases the last set of movies meant to tie off the universe. At least as much as I can figure, for now. GuP is one of those shows that just seem to be a hit for some reason, even if it’s just cute girls cute things in tanks. Like der Film, will be placing my thoughts before the (rather lengthy) summary.

Space Battleship Yamato 2202: Warriors of Love (Episode 9&10)

Okay, this took longer than a week. Like, the fourth volume is out now on BluRay and DVD. I do like the latter half of this set of four episodes, as episode nine finally pushes Kodai to make a decision to prove his (and humanity’s) worth. Anyways, on to the episodes shall we?

Space Battleship Yamato 2202: Warriors of Love (Episode 7&8)

Once again in the backburner for a while. Episodes 9 and 10 should come within a week. No excuses for the lateness, apart from it passing my mind and the files sitting in my computer. Is it just me or is Kodai somewhat grating? Then again, the responsibilities of independent command outside a combined fleet action would do that.

Graf Zeppelin Came Home

Trainer of new aircraft carriers, Zuikaku by goma (yoku yatta hou jane)

This is a Kantai Collection related post, and also one that made me go ‘URK’ in terms of cost and whatnot. This isn’t some unboxing video or what have you, just some random normie (really, normie? -muse) posting about a very expensive figure.

It took me a long time to get Graf Zeppelin in KanColle, and it has been a source of anguish for me, as if the character was testing me after my initial distaste to Humikane Shimada’s design. Over time she grew on me and so I was endlessly frustrated when I didn’t obtain Graf when she became available.

Anyways, the figure is in 1:7 scale and made by Funny Knights. I had also gotten the Zuikaku Kai Ni figure from them, and honestly prefer the Kai Ni over the Kai Ni A colour scheme.

Anyways, some pictures.

Eighth Blogging Anniversary

So, two years ago, what I consider my favorite scene in GATE happened. Well, it happened sometime in January, but still.

I have not been active in blogging the past few months. Personal malaise and professional obligations had me occupied. I have three planned posts for the next two weeks, much less than some who achieve the same three posts in as little as one day. It is unrefined, barely filtered thoughts I have. But apart from that, this blog will continue, in low postage and in rambling spurts, until I decide it’s not viable anymore.

Happy Bloggoversary for me.

Kino no Tabi -the Beautiful World- the Animated Series (Episode 12)

And thus ends what I deem a rather good reboot/re-imaginging of a series that I’ve viewed over the years through rose-tinted glasses. I hope everyone had some fun with it, though I know for some it wasn’t their cup of tea in comparison to what other offerings we had this season.

Kino no Tabi -the Beautiful World- the Animated Series (Episode 11)

We are at the penultimate episode of the series, and to me the one I’ve been looking forward to most, even if it hasn’t changed at the slightest. Well, in terms of story, animation quality went up several notches and a little bit more implied background was added. Imgur is also being stupid, so no pictures for now. Will add an edit once the album is loaded.

Quick Thought: Kino no Tabi -the Beautiful World- the Animated Series (Episode 10)

I wasn’t able to pump out a post during Anime USA for this episode, but I’ll just add my thoughts. Nothing amazing or new.
