Weekly Anime Review

Quite a few tense moments and exiting things this week. Argevollen had no fighting for once, but more special mechas are showing up. Sword Art Online ended its mini-Calibur arc. Gundam: G no Reconguista is starting to go to weird places. Shingeki No Bahamut is still all action-adventure and keeping a good pace. Fate/Stay Night has less fighting and more talking this week, which is a good thing, I guess. Psycho-Pass live up to its psycho level.

Argevollen, Ep 18

NR stands for Nanjou Reika. Talk about a punch to the guts, having a super dangerous mental syndrome named after your sister. The corporation manipulating events in the background is really nasty.

They also have another mecha they are working on in the background; that’s why they want data from Sturm Alpha and Arge. The Captain knows about and who is behind it. I wonder how this is going to end.

Iglemia lost their Brigadier General, assassinated by Intelligence, not sure what to take from that event. Nor the part where Adanras ends up with lots of little orange Arges.

Sword Art Online II, Ep 17

Freya-san is a guy. Thor, even. Klein even got the hammer, except he has no hammer skills. Sinon is such a tease too.

This is the end of this arc and of course our party won the final fight. Helped by a gigantic Thor, but still defeated the Frost Giant King.

Then they all had a dinner in reality. Strangely, Shinon and Kirito’s sister seems to be closer to him than Asuna. I wonder why.

Gundam: G no Reconguista, Ep 7

Logic, where are you?

We learned what a Kuntala is this episode. In the past, some humans were grown as herds to be eaten. That’s crazy, but fits this crazy setting.

Once again, the Capital Army tried to capture the Megafuna and the same tree people defended it: Self, Montaron and Arcane. Although, we saw a new mega-mobile suit armor at the end. Bellri’s mother also did something crazy; she took off in an old recon-ship to find her son.

I’m starting to think we are going to get the Megafuna against the Capital Army until the end, especially with Bellri’s mom getting with that group.

Shingeki no Bahamut: Genesis, Ep 5

Once again, Rita is awesome. This time we got a Zombie Wyvern! Being 200 years old has perks, and we learned a few things: the flying castle is called Gregor and it belongs to the fallen angel Azazel. That’s the dude who really wanted to put his hands on Amira.

Looks like the fallen angel knew of Kaisar and Favaro’s fathers. I’m calling it, he’s the demon who killed them. He also tortured Amira. This show really succeeds in making its bad guy unlikable.

The Orleans Knight showed up again too. Seems like Favaro called on some help there.

Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works, Ep 4

The episode started with the only scene of Ilya in this episode. Once again, she’s cute, but she’s also really creepy. It also appear that she wants some revenge on Shirou’s adoptive father.

Rin told Shirou she was going to be his enemy for like the 100th time already. You know it’s not going to happen girl, you are so totally in love already.

Speaking of Shirou, he has two more women staying in his house now: Fuji-nee and Sakura. Poor guy. On her side, Rin started to investigate who was doing all sort of illegal magic in the school and ended up finding that Caster is a woman and doing not so nice things around.

Next episode might finally introduce Caster.

Psycho-Pass 2, Ep 5

I though the last episode was hard, didn’t I… well, this was like the worst.

Looks like Kamui is using impostors in reality. He has faces and arms and all sort of body parts to transplant people. He even transplanted himself Sishui’s eye. I’m going to guess that the person who now look like Sishui is not her at all.

The cops were led to a trap too. A Hungry Chicken trap. Basically, a new game that controls real killer robots was uploaded to the web and lots of idiots are killing real people with it.

Hungry Chicken
This is a killer game

We also learned that Togane is obsessed with Akane. That one is interesting, not sure where this is going exactly, but I still peg him has being a Sibyl brain.
