Re:CREATORS – Finale

It may not seem like it, since I’ve not done an episodic review of the show like I normally would’ve done, but I’ve been watching Re:CREATORS since writing the three episode rule post about it. Now that it has ended, I can only say: wow.

Kantai Collection: The Movie

As the Summer 2017 Event came to a close the other day, in between clearing and farming runs, I watched the Kantai Collection movie. It has been released on BD and of course, enterprising folks have gone and gotten that available for the masses. So, let’s get started, shall we?

Quick Thought: Brave Witches Episode 13: The Great Petersburg Strategy

A really quick thought on the Brave Witches OVA episode featuring Sanya and Eila as they enjoy their leave at the 502nd’s base of operations at Petersburg. With a romantic getaway at an old and majestic city as Petersburg, you’d think Eila would get some action in. Well she thought wrong, much to the mirth of some of us and me groaning at every block thrown at her.

Three Episode Rule: Princess Principal

After being so annoyed with Clockwork Planet not really embracing the Clockwork motif as a setting (my opinion and taste to be completely honest), Princess Principal embraces its Steampunk aesthetic in a way I’ve not truly encountered since Last Exile: Fam, the Silver Wing. Princesses, intrigue, gray moralities, and action is the order of the day, and I’m honestly loving it, as it is classic Hollywood spy-thriller with gadgets, convoluted sneaking around, and mooks being mowed down or missing completely. This is going to be short, I’ve been suffering a bout of bronchitis, and this was started on over a week ago and now only finishing it.

Space Battleship Yamato 2202: Warriors of Love (Episodes 1 & 2)

I will make an out-and-out admission. Space Battleship Yamato 2199 was the first Yamato series I’ve watched from beginning to end. I’ve seen bits and pieces of previous Yamatos and of course, watched the Americanized Star Blazers when I was a kid. I know bits of lore mainly from friends and summaries. So let’s see how this works out shall we? Also, tried to make em short, but I think I failed.

Disclaimer: Yes, I know the series titlecard has it as “Soldiers of Love”, I’m going via what the wikis are saying. And even then the image filenames will still be wol###e## because too lazy.

Quick Thought: End Thoughts for Spring 2017

With the end of another anime season, a few shows I’ve stuck with come to a close. One show still goes on, and its pacing is actually holding up. But for the others, my thoughts below.

And yes, they’ll actually be quick.

Quick Thought: Boxes


Drawn by mochizuki saku on pixiv.

I had been sent home from work for reasons I won’t elaborate beyond ‘medical’. But while waiting in the parking lot of the urgent care, waiting for it to open so I can get checked out, read that a gunman had opened fire on Republicans practicing for the traditional Congressional Baseball Game. There are -as of now- credible reports that the shooter had asked the party affiliation of the players on the field before opening fire. The House Majority Whip, Representative Steve Scalise, representing the 1st District of Louisiana, was shot in the hip but is in stable condition undergoing surgery as of now.

UPDATE 6/14/2017 2306EDT: The extent of the damage is greater than initially reported, Representative is in critical condition where the rifle round shattered bone and ruptured organs.

You know, it’s really hard to stay apolitical on this blog with what has been going on in just US domestic politics. I could comment more, but I’ve made a promise not to fill my blog with my personal politics, and so far, I’ve kept that, though bent it here and there.

I’m not going to start preachin’ today.

Just hit a pensive mood while I was looking at the constantly updating story. About the idea of the four boxes of liberty.

Between you and me, dear readers, I still believe in this great nation. She ain’t perfect, but she’s the best of the two I’ve lived in. But belief doesn’t overturn the growing reality, and personally, I keep involved.

I just hope I don’t have to use the last box.

Quick Thought: Not Exactly Midpoint – Spring 2017 Thoughts

Reisen on a Computer, drawn by itsutsuki on pixiv.

So, I intended to make this post on the actual mid-way point for the shows that managed to keep me interested, but as one could see, it didn’t go as well. With personal matters and just plain lethargy over the current titles seeping in, I needed some time away from things. I’m not as prolific as Infinite Zenith is in coming out with content, but I hope the few things I do, some people find some enjoyment out of it.

And now to just quickly go through these shows.

Late Quick Thought: Sakura Matsuri DC and Kimi no Na wa

A few days ago I managed to make a quick visit to the Sakura Matsuri being held at the Washington D.C. Navy Yard. The highlight of the afternoon though was getting to see the North American theatrical premier of Kimi no Na wa. Overall it was a pretty good day.

Artist Unknown, found on Danbooru.
