Got four more shows to quickly talk about.
Barakamon looks like a show about a city boy who had it rough there moving to the countryside and developing a new outlook on life thanks to the strange and energetic residents. Sounds good to me as our lead’s pessimism and ego remind me of myself at one point. Also Naru’s a devilishly adorable sidekick to help our guy take a chill pill and loosen up to further improve his calligraphy career. Good first two episodes and will be paying close attention to this one. Won’t be covering it though like I mentioned in my update post.
Momo Kyun Sword is another alteration of some historic era in Japan or legend. In this show’s case the legend of Momotaro. It’s basically a straightforward action adventure show starring several attractive women with gravity defying breasts.I’m not expecting anything life changing from this one. The #1 reason I picked this show up is to see the gorgeous Onihime in action. Other than that I hope this show will be somewhat better than “Blade and Soul”. Nothing amazing but I’ll keep watching for Onihime.
Yama no Susume 2’s like a refresher course of who is who and the fun times our leading ladies have preparing for some intense mountain climbing action. Aoi and Hinata still have the potential of being paired up, Kokona’s still an adorable peach and Kaede’s still the experienced sempai whose sexiness is not overdone but presented in a casual manner. The girls had fun setting up camp and our leading duo’s dream to see the magical sunset again is as strong as ever. Will wait until something amazing happens but until the I won’t be covering this show episodically.
Tokyo ESP. One of two Summer 2014 anime with Japan’s capital in the title that look to be super violent. The kind of stuff the mainstream goes crazy for. Myself, eh. The first episode is a basic super powered beings terrorist attack, like the Brotherhood of Evil from X-Men. The leader reminds me of Magneto and Professor X combined. Anyway the episode is a long terrorist attack with the good Espers taking action in the last couple of minutes. I guess it’ll be an interesting show to watch but I’m not exactly mega hot on it.
I suppose I’ll watch Tokyo Ghoul tomorrow and watch some dismemberment, mutilation, ultra violence, somber story setting and all that stuff the mainstream eats up like a hungry hippopotamus.
The hypocrisy that the mainstream LOVES these grim and violent shows but go berserk with rage the instant a woman shows off some skin and, heaven forbid, nipples is one of many reasons why I do not take the majority’s opinion seriously.
Oh and the cameo by Kagura and Yomi confirms this show takes place in the Ga-Rei universe. What that means could only matter to diehard Ga-Rei fans, which I am not one of. I honestly didn’t GaRei Zero very much. It was okay I guess.
