Jigoku Shoujo Mitsuganae Ep. 19: Snow, Moon, Flower

5 May, 2009

A screen that ISN'T Enma Ai.  Pretty, no?

A vast improvement over the last episode, with a very…well, EPIC ending.  Gods, where was this 18 episodes ago!?  Mind you, the ending is still hidden behind the rest of the episode, but at least the plot was a lot more dramatic than a stupid radio show.

Noticed that nobody has ever put up the translation for the full version of ‘storm’, aka Mai Otome Zwei ED2.  I like the song enough that I might actually put it up here.  I’ll have to rummage around for the lyrics.

Tales of the Abyss Ep. 18 + 19

25 February, 2009

Part II: Complete!

Another double dose of Tales of the Abyss!  It’s transition time as we phase from Part II to Part III of the game, complete with new developments!

In other news, I’ll have more of Jigoku Shoujo soon.  I have to translate Episode 15 anyway, so I might as well write an entry for it while I’m at it, no?

I do have this to say though – this season has again been rather underwhelming, and I’m watching shows from the previous season (ToraDORAMA, To Aru Majutsu no Index, Tales of the Abyss, Jigoku Shoujo Mitsuganae).  With that said, next season looks pretty good.  Shangri-La, yay~!  Or, for more mind-numbing madness, Hayate S2!  O_o;;

Macross Frontier Ep. 19: Triangular

17 August, 2008

In the end, the episode name fits.  I was really hoping the love triangle would’ve been finished by now, but it looks like we have to tough things out…quite possibly to the very end.  Anyway, behind the “We beat the #^#%! outta the Vajra and ran” celebration lies a much, much darker story.  Things are definitely coming to a head, and it looks like one heck of a race to the finish of this series.  I’ve always been a huge fan of Macross Frontier (admittedly, it was mostly due to the excellent music), but I really can’t wait for next week to come – it’s just that good right now.  It could also be that I can’t get enough of ‘Lion’, which to me is in the running for the best OP of the season.  ‘Lions licking themselves’ line notwithstanding.
