Quick Thought – Azur Lane Episode 11 & 12

I do have a reason why this is late, and is just a quick thought. It’s best that I explain myself first.

So, I’ve noted I work for the Federal government, and as such, I fell under the whole ‘essential personnel’ category. What it actually says on my ID card is ‘Federal Emergency Response Official’. Basically, I’m expected to report to duty barring extenuating circumstances (like my car being upside down in a ditch). That’s why I haven’t been blogging. I’m active in other places, particularly in a Discord Server RP, but not blogging.

Anyways, to my thoughts:

Akagi and whatever Amagi is supposed to be is crazy. Enterprise going after the ICBM to try and stop it was worthy of the action though the impact was not as compelling.

Enterprise coming to grips with herself was great, as was Kaga’s final realization she’s in the wrong and for someone to save Akagi. The big damn heroes thing where Crimson Axis and Azur Lane team up against the Aby- I mean Sirens was nice, especially when the older statesmen show up. Seeing the distinguished battleships form a battle line, as if the schism never happened at all was great.

The reforming of the anti-Siren force, though with separate camps still a thing leads well into the current game I guess, I’ve not advanced past world four in the game.

Apart from that, it was a cap of sorts alright, though I find it was less confusing than Kantai Collection’s anime, it had fewer memorable moments to me. And not one episode really stuck out.

That’s my very quick, obviously not thought well through, thoughts on the series. I’m going back to sleep.

Returned to an Old Friend

So, while I slowly go stir crazy due to the lockdown, and also slowly write my blog post sentence by sentence each day, played World of Tanks again.

I wasn’t going to do any videos or any announcements beyond normal group of friends on voice chat.

I also didn’t expect to reenact the Naiguatá vs Resolute.

Girls und Panzer das Finale 2

So, I did indicate I was going to do this later during my vacation, but having watched the 2nd episode now a few times, twice un-subtitled and now three times subtitled, I can’t really hold back wanting to talk about it. Using my new-ish format of thoughts first then summary.

Quick Thought: A Stroll Through Richmond

Took the opportunity to drive down to Richmond on Monday after work. I’m not as vocal of my gun rights as some, limited to discussing my view in person or liking/retweeting something on Twitter or adding a 240-character hot take. But with the slew of gun control bills my idiot governor and his allies have proposed, I decided to attend the Virginia Citizen’s Defense League’s lobby day. I originally wrote this up right after I got home but alas, I collapsed as I had already been up for 28 hours at that point. So please, click read more to see some of the pictures and my thoughts. It’s the first really political post I’ve had in awhile.

Azur Lane: The Animation – Episode 10

I guess it’s no secret now, the last two episodes of the anime has been delayed to March 2020 to address the animation issues. And at least this episode came out with a bit more quality than expected. Plot still kinda all over the place though. Best bit was really Belfast taking charge finally and dragging Enterprise around.

Azur Lane: The Animation – Episode 9

And suddenly the animation quality went stepped up a few rungs. That’s really not saying much considering the series’ known animation failings in the past five episodes. At least we got a proper ‘restart’ to the let’s be friends arc.
