Weekly Anime Review

There was a lot of talking this week on all of the shows. It’s like it was Let’s Talk week. Mahouka took it really slow despite only having a few episodes left to finish the current story arc. I guess the battles are going to go fast. Captain Earth delivered what was more or less a filler episode from my point-of-view right before the final. Argevollen was a cool down episode, Aldnoahcontinued…

Shows are cruising toward their endings or mid-season finals. Mahouka was action-packed this week; in fact, it had two fights against the same enemy in a single episode. Captain Earth had a weird ending moment. Argevollen was, once again, super slow. The direction of that anime is lacking. Aldnoah had the best episode I’ve watched of an anime in a long time. Sword Art Online was predictable. (mor…

I dropped Re: Hamatora this week because I don’t like where it is going that much. For the rest, threads are picking up. Argevollen succeeded in having the worst and best animations of its season in a single episode. Mahouka shows that kids can easily be bullies to adults. Captain Earth has people doing stupid things. Adnoah Zero has a “Yeah, I love flying battleships” moment. Finally, Sword Art…

Once again, some nice action and plot development this week. Somewhat normal weeks for the almost-ending shows like Mahouka and Captain Earth. There was also a lot of plot exposition, maybe a bit heavy-handed in some cases. Actually, that’s one of the annoying thing in recent anime: heavy-handed exposition. It just doesn’t flow that well, even if the information is super important and interesting.

There was action this week, lots of action. Mahouka had a Tatsuya rampage. Captain Earth had anAustralian Outback rampage. Argevollen had a Unit 8 rampage. This is a lie, mostly off-screen, most of the episode was Jamie running as per the title: “Run, Jamie!” Aldnoah Zero had the Martian Vlad going on a rampage. Sword Art Online had the start of Ballet of Bullet. Re: Hamatorahad a Honey-centric…

Mahouka and Captain Earth are trotting slowly toward a conclusion, although it’s a bit unclear where both are going. Argevollen is still going too slowly plot-wise. It’s not a bad show, it just lacks “oomph” in term of direction. Aldnoah Zero and Sword Art Online II are the most awesome shows currently and Re Hamatora makes me cry every time I watch it because I don’t want Art to be a bad guy. (m…

Weekly Anime Review

I’m really liking the new shows I picked for the summer season. Aldnoah Zero is so far building up to be awesome in all aspects. Sword Art Online continues to be an awesome critique of online gaming. Argevollen might be the weak link, but it is still building, though much more slowly than did Aldnoah. I also added Re: Hamatora even though I originally forgot that the new season was starting, I’m…
