[そらのおとしもの] Sora no Otoshimono -07-

November 16th, 2009

Awesome ep, as usual. First some random stuff.

The “male” (lol) character songs from Haruhi2 will be out Wednesday. Of course, not that you’d really care much for Kyon’s singing, but.

Anyways… ささっと 始まれ!

♫ currently listening to: only my railgun – fripSide

Oh, yes, and the last Fall2009 OP I really really want is the Shin Koihime Musou intro. It’s better than flower of bravery, the 1st season OP, which was very high by my standards already. I like that kind of song, wonder if there’s a lot more of that kind of music that I just haven’t discovered yet.

そらのおとしもの / Sora no Otoshimono 第七話

This episode, in one sentence: Ikaros and Nymph go to school, and we discover that Nymph has some cool deep dark evil secret.

Sohara's imagination theatre.

Sohara's imagination theatre.

Sohara gets extremely flustered because Ikaros and Nymph are super-cute, super-smart, and super-popular.  Our Protagonist says outright that he doesn’t love either of the angels. That’s rare; usually in harem animes the protagonist is too scared/flustered/embarrassed/stupid to tell all or part of his harem that he doesn’t like them, or even more usually the protagonist just simply likes all of his girls.

If this keeps up, Tomoki-kun is going to need mental rehabilitation.

Aaand typical SoraOto things happen (yes very clever shortname).

One of the great things here is how every ep, and I mean every single one, has its own unique outro song. Most of them aren’t spectacular, though, so that’s a downer — I’d rather have one really awesome song (like an IKU song ^_^ *nudgenudge*).

"WTF"

"WTF"

So like… satirical emotional-scene-parodies later, after Tomoki’s class pressures him into jumping out of the second-story windowof the school building (or rather… it was more his own idiocy… and where’s Sohara here?), Tomoki is injured, in bed, and everything is as usual. Feels like Touma (chibi-ified).

"Do it, Tomoki! WE BELIEVE IN YOU!!!"

"Do it, Tomoki! WE BELIEVE IN YOU!!!"

Fast forward, and serious plot mode on. Why have the Angels been sent to Tomoki? Exactly what the hell is Synapse and the “world in the sky”? Since it looks like a landmass I can assume it’s not “heaven” heaven?

"I'm secretly evil, if you can't tell by this facial expression."

"I'm secretly evil, if you can't tell by this facial expression."

Uwahhh about Nymph.

By the way, Synapse is cool. Way better than “Easter” >____>; oh, Saint and Vesper from Mahoro are also good names for big, possibly-evil secret organizations.

Oh yeah, remember “Mithril”? FMP feels so long ago x_x or was it Mythril…

What other evil organization names? Oh, Hypnos from Digimon Tamers… that was a really great name. What was Shana‘s called? Those badguys were… um… umum… *wikis*

… half an hour later (read through the entire wiki Shana page again… it’s just so interesting ><) anyways, it was “Bal Masqué”. Specifically, Hecate+Sydonnay+Bel Peol are called the Trinity. Shana terminology is just so intriguing.

For general organization names… what was the Nanoha organization called? I can only remember the acronym, TSB… what was it, Transportation Safety Bureau? XD

Anywho, excellent ep. S… I hesitate to give S+. Let’s go with S+0.25. Ahaha. [9.25/10]

Words of Wisdom

October 24th, 2009

So, Hanchan, ya done with your emotional post about love, the universe, and everything yet?

Actually, even before you’re done, I have a comment to post for it. >.<

Feelings of love are just a temporary lapse in judgement. Like a kind of mental illness. – Haruhi Suzumiya

So, uh, I was writing a post reviewing Shugo Chara!… and somehow it turned into an emotional rant in the middle. And it was getting wordy enough to earn the prestigious Wordy tag! Hahaha… anime rant + emotional rant combined! How efficient of me.

More quotes that sound relevant to Hanchan.

It feels so close to me, yet I can’t reach it even if I hold out my hands. But even if I can’t reach it, there are things that will stay in my heart. Being in the same time and looking at the same sky; if I can remember that, then even if we are far apart, I believe we can still be together. – Emiya Shirou (Fate/stay night)

Now I’m getting off-topic.

A dream — I’m dreaming a dream. A dream I see everyday — an endless dream. The day the dream didn’t end, when was it? Was it a long time ago or was it just few minutes ago? The answer to it must lie in the dream… in the time you didn’t realize was passing; only waiting. ~Ayu (Kanon 06)

This is supposed to be encouraging, by the way.

Fūko: Now, I like you more than sea slugs.
Tomoya: Seriously?! Yay!

The Anime Post

October 14th, 2009

11eyes Episode 02 – More characters! More confusing plot! More ugly enemies to slice up, more cool-looking animation~! Awesome anime. I don’t understand ANYTHING that’s happening, but the visuals make it appealing enough. I don’t know whether or not I should go into a more in-depth summary. Ah fine, I will. Slightly.

Okay, so… um… his sister is not dead? Or… she… came back to life? Or were they hallucinating? And… what’s with everybody else? The romance between Yuka and um… Kakeru-kun is cute, it feels like Shakugan no Shana as I’ve mentioned before. Who is the weird white-haired girl? Who is the girl trapped in the crystal? Who are the good guys, who are the bad guys!? Who the hell is everyone, and what the hell is going on!?!?

This anime is fun, because nothing makes sense. A+ or AA. [7/10]

こばと / Kobato Episode 02 – waiting for gg’s subtitles.

聖剣の刀鍛冶 / Seiken no Blacksmith (The Sacred Blacksmith) Episodes 01 ~ 02 – Me and Hanchan were laughing at and making fun of this anime back in the beginning of Summer 2009. Are they going to show us 30 minutes of video involving an old man hammering an anvil? Hahaha, what else could an anime about a “sacred” blacksmith be about? Ahahaha!

Well, we were wrong (lol). This is actually quite an interesting anime. The lead female is really cute. She sucks at fighting, but her personality and looks make up for it. The lead male is very cool, and his assistant is loli enough to make this a complete anime. The plot I cannot judge yet, however. I pray to Haruhi for a good plot. A or A+. Actually, maybe I’ll give it an AA for the cool OP/ED. [6.5/10]

Also, I watched today:

宙のまにまに / Sora no Manimani Episode 09 – This episode was so boring. Normally Sora no Manimani is a lot more hilarious than this, but this episode suddenly, randomly, quadrupled the cast, and it wasn’t really funny. It won’t make me discontinue Sora no Manimani, but I’ll want to finish it less.

とある魔術の禁書目録 / To Aru Majutsu no Index (A Certain Magical Index) Episode 07 (rewatch) – Wow. This anime is somehow better than I remembered it. Why is the rewatch twice as enjoyable than the original time around?

I remember the first time I watched Index, and I didn’t think it was that good. Well, maybe that’s because it was right after I watched a bunch of SS/SS+ ranked animes like Nanoha or Haruhi or Lucky Star or something, I don’t know. But wow, now that I’m rewatching in HD, I totally appreciate the visual effects. Index is so much more appealing too (originally I started hating her after maybe episode 04), although Misaka and Touma still go better together. I think I’ll watch an episode a week alongside Railgun. I found I forgot most of what happened in Index (well, it has been a couple years), so rewatching this is fun.

I need to rewatch some more animes that I really loved. For example, my very first anime, Cardcaptor Sakura must deserve a rewatch. Tsubasa isn’t quite over yet, but maybe I’ll rewatch some other CLAMP works. I’d also rewatch Nanoha, and KyoAni things like Haruhi, although for Haruhi I’m planning on watching everything together, on Blu-ray, once everything is done and over with and the Blu-rays come out.
