Oh, yes, Mayuri dies again for the hundredth time, like that was a big surprise for anyone. Then again, I’ve started to develop this sympathy for Mayuri. I actually care about what happens to her, and this time when she died, I had a heavy feeling in my heart. Okay, not really, but the sentiment’s still there. It’s a freaking tragedy.
What’s Okabe going to do from now on? Your guess is as good as mine, if I start talking about this honestly. A lot of people would have you believe that they know more about Stein’s Gate and they probably do…they’ve probably played the visual novel already. Anyways, leave a comment about what you think might happen soon and also, click to read more (Because you know there’s more).
Can I call ‘em, or can I call ‘em? I predicted way back in my previous Stein’s Gate post that there was possibility that Mr. Braun was FB all along. The initials were there, namely the B, and characters like him tend to take on a pivotal role despite their lack of development. Mr. Braun’s life story, though depressing, felt shoehorned and typical: Little boy grows up poor and gets taken in by a twisted organization. It’s happened before, and it sure as hell won’t be the last time someone will use this.
Moeka and Okabe join forces to track down FB and the IBN 5100 computer. At the end of a long trail, they end up staking out Mr. Braun’s house. When confronted by questions relating to his secret identity, Mr. Braun reveals his life story and regales of his previous trickery. He then pulls out a gun and kills Moeka for being a traitor before killing himself. Of course, Okabe is able to reverse this sorry fate via a D-Mail. However in doing so, he’s left Makise Kurisu to her demise. How will he get out of it? Read the rest of this entry
Ah, deadlines. They frequently cast me into particularly precarious situations where I run the risk of having my ass handed to me on a shining platter. That said, I haven’t slept for over a day and I’ve been working nearly all that time. You know what that means? Work harder and get it done? No, silly! It means that I should write an anime post about all the episodes I ran through this past weekend…with six hours left ticking on the clock. Oh, dear.
No. 6 is a Noitamina anime and it brings a lot of expectations along with it, at least from my perspective. It’s being produced by BONES (Fullmetal Alchemist, anyone?) and even has some light novel source material to cover for it. But from what’s been shown this week, there will be no grand science fiction plot like I had initially hoped. Yes, it’s still going to contain sci-fi elements, but it’s not going to go the route I hoped for: something like Fractale, but better.
As for Daikichi and Rin, well, their story is getting on a little better. I have no qualms with the story anymore as I’ve come to realize that this show isn’t going to throw any drama at me, the likes of which Ano Hana did in large quantities. Harrumph, why, yes, that just may be a new love interest for Daikichi.
It’s been said before, and I won’t be the last one to say it again but Mayo Chiki’s saving grace is the skillful balance that’s struck between all of its elements. You have beautifully twisted characters like Suzutsuki controlling everyone else through her schemes, though they’re well-intentioned, and gynophobes like Kinjirou and aichmophobes like Subaru Konoe. Funny how the two main characters each have their own weaknesses.
Kanade Suzutsuki takes everyone to a water park after telling Kureha, Jirou’s sister, that she’s happily going steady with Jirou. She’s suspicious at first, that is, until Suzutsuki agrees to help Kureha in her pursuit of Konoe. Poor girl, she doesn’t know that she’s a reverse-trap. Read the rest of this entry
