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.

Legend of the Galactic Heroes – Die Neue These: Episode 13 – 14

So, I’ve been meaning to write this since the start of the new season, but only really poking into it now near the end. Just a quick summary and my thoughts. I’ll be doing this in two episodes each.

Azur Lane: The Animation – Episode 8

So, the animation quality was still a bit of hit or miss, and I think we can just resign to the fact that we’re probably better off waiting for the BD release to get anything decent out of the show in terms of animation. Otherwise, a bit to chew on this episode.

Quick Thought: Azur Lane: The Animation – Episode 7

Still somewhat preoccupied, especially now that Girls’ Frontline’s newest event, Singularity, is ongoing. Just a quick thought today, life really likes to come in. I’ll get my first LOGH DNT post by the end of the month. It’s rather late. If you don’t wanna read on, what I can basically say is for this episode in a tl;dr?

“Don’t make deals with the devil.”

Quick Thought: Azur Lane and Rifle is Beautiful

So, my goals have been thoroughly railroaded this past week. I’m unable to properly give more than a mere quick paragraph for Azur Lane and Rifle is Beautiful’s last episodes. I’ll get a proper entry for Azur Lane’s next episode done by the weekend but I needed a bit of a break.

Sleep doesn’t sound too bad either. Art by lilywhite lilyblack on pixiv.

[Quick Thought] Azur Lane: The Animation – Episode 5

So, my expectation for this episode was a bit high. Granted I was watching Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These and I was expecting a breakout akin to the Battle of Armitsar. In reality, the episode was more character reflection than anything.


Episode Thoughts:

GET IN THERE AND FIGHT DAMNIT.

I’ve been yelling this the entire time. I get that Ayanami, Javelin, and Laffey have this weird ‘I want to be friends’ thing going on but this was directed at almost everyone. I’d say almost because it seems the Iron Blood and Sheffield were really doing the most.

But after all that time, building up for a final confrontation. I swear to God if there is one thing Kantai Collection did right was battles. Azur Lane Episode 4 had the start of one with Sheffield and Takao. This could’ve been the case if they put more thought into animating the battle between Cleveland, Takao, and Atago. I’m also a tad confused with the whole thing, why were the cranes deciding to get in and tangle with the enemy? I’m sure all combatants are skilled at close quarters, especially Zuikaku and Shoukaku with their swords, but it made no sense to me.

There was the scene in the end where the two cranes come across Hornet rather than Enterprise. Enterprise’s mere presence in the battlefield cuts the smug grin off Prinz Eugen’s face and orders a retreat. I think the most significant thing was really Akashi realizing how screwed she is by being with Azur Lane and absconding with the Siren tech.

I’m honestly not seeing much I can talk about, as for a good 10 minutes the episode was spent at staring at each other. I’m sorry, I can’t wrap my head around this episode at all.

Azur Lane: The Animation – Episode 4

I think I’ll be joining the chorus of Enterprise x Belfast shippers who want thin books of the two of them come next Comiket. Also, the plot thickens. And I don’t mean about Akagi’s little side project. I’m liking Sheffield, I’m a bit of a fan of the maid motif and the battle maid type in particular, so her going all gun kata against Takao and Kaga was fun to see. If only the animator’s budget didn’t go into Kaga‘s wolf…thing.

Three Episode Rule – Rifle is Beautiful – Episode 2: Club is Funny

And so, we start the next episode and the trials and tribulations of the Chidori High School Shooting Club. I know a lot of people have passed on this, but I’m not one of them. Granted I’m just not gonna do episode summaries, seems to be a waste for the skit-style presentation. Unfortunately this will mean all my posts for this show will be closer to Quick Thoughts.

Three Episode Rule [Quick Thought] – Azur Lane: The Animation – Episode 3

I’m honestly not a fan of ‘Edgyprise’ and I know some have stated their disdain for the PTSD-addled Grey Ghost, but it seems that she’s here to stay for the foreseeable future. Though we do have the addition of Belfast and her impossible clothing into the shipping wars, being somewhat paired up with Enterprise for now.
