Another week, another episode. Luckily for us, Sacred Seven comes bundled with a new OP song which looks much more epic than a two meter teen hunched over a small moped. Also, the show gets a bit more bearable – possibly because of the new OP.
What’s that? Kenmi’s been playing the Darkstone people all this time? Yeah, with his shifty eyes, that wasn’t hard to predict.
And Ao no Exorcist…dang. I don’t know what to say about that show. It’s entering a lull once again. Six weeks are left of Ao no Exorcist, if not eight, so there’s a fair amount of time for a small mini-climax to build up. Hopefully it’ll be more tantalizing than a demonic bucket of KFC. Seriously, Konekomaru (or whatever his name is) turning into a chicken was laughably bad.
I’ve been disappointed with this series so far and I’m going to keep on covering it just so I can bash on it. Isn’t that noble? In other news, I’ll be away for quite a few days, so be surprised if you see the daily updates flowing in. I’ll try to get what I can covered, but until then, leave a comment (Yes, that was a shameless plug). Anyways, now it’s time to see why Kijima nabs Ruri. Read the rest of this entry
Did I mention I hit another milestone today? Or a few days ago, really. Yeah, this thing is growing so fast…I don’t know what to do with it. Okay, it’s the beach episode that everyone’s been waiting for. And wouldn’t you know it, seeing everyone showing off their beach bodies wasn’t too disappointing… Well, for the most part. SUNRISE managed to tack on a completely unwarranted Darkstone encounter which, in essence, killed what little value this episode had. Yes, I’m being critical – wouldn’t you be the same if you haven’t slept for the past three days? Read the rest of this entry
Treasure this picture of Yuina, folks, as this is pretty much her only scene in this whole episode. She didn’t play much of a role at all this week and her only purpose was to deliver news to Ohana – which she already knew. That being said, it wasn’t only Yuina who was shafted; Ohana, Nakochi, Minchi, and Jiromaru (My precious Jiromaru) were all relegated to the statuses of side characters. Most of the show focused on Enishi’s self-confidence issues and his “blooming” period, for lack of a better term.
Hanasaku Iroha wasn’t the only show that threatened to turn into a bore-fest, Sacred Seven fell into a ditch this week as Alma, Ruri, and Kagami take part in the school’s efforts to set up the school festival, the hallmark of any school-based show – besides of course, the swimsuit episode. Anyways, the Dark Stone was a joke and didn’t call for a transformation. After all, aren’t those stones expensive as hell? Read the rest of this entry
