13 Apr

railgun 01 - a

Summary

This anime started with the reintroduction of the characters, because apparently, Japanese viewers have really bad memory. There’s Misaka Mikoto with her Gekota phone strap and mini skirt. There’s Kuroko, the teleporter who’s working for Judgement. Uiharu the plain yoghurt. And lastly, Saten, the lewd middle schooler who lured hoodlums into wanting to rape her. Great. They are fried by Misaka before they can do it, though. A scene which we have seen too many times. Later, we are told once again that Misaka is ranked third among all espers in Academy City. Because we are supposed to have forgotten.

Maoyuu Maou Yuusha ep 07 : Sandwiched by a Redhair and a Blonde

19 Feb

Summary

Again. We saw another time skip. For the hundredth time. The nameless young maid is telling us what happened during the time skip. About how life’s gotten better. About how the knight just won’t give up of being the third wheel. Bla bla bla. Back to present. The hero is sparring with his mistress, and again we are shown about how imba he is. Yawn. Give me a break. Next is fan service time, bathing with the knight. We are also shown a water pump. Who’s the inventor? Surprise. Surprise. It’s M-A-O-U. Next, the hero and the knight have some more bonding time. The knight is definitely trying to woo him, but the stupid virgin is completely oblivious and talking about serious stuff instead. Next is the time to drink a carbonated lemonade, because apparently, it’s very important and relevant to the plot. Next, another endless exposition. Well, that’s no surprise. I have even tagged this anime as infodump. Next we are shown that the dragon princess is totally in love with the Hero?

Maoyuu Maou Yuusha ep 03 : I missed you, darling!

20 Jan

Summary

Three months have passed since last episode. The village is doing pretty well, under the guidance of Boobs-chan. Also the apprentice maids are doing pretty well, they totally blend in with the villagers and loved by everybody. Our main characters moved out for a new mission, to meet with the church and ask for their cooperation. We got more infodumping here. Bla bla bla. The church is very important and useful. Bla bla bla. They pray to Light Spirit. Bla bla bla. There, they met with Hero’s ex-nakama, the Knight. Remember how I said that they still had one nakama other than an old fart and a mage chick? Yes, this is her. A knight class party member. A blonde bitch who gets hysterical a lot and not feminine at all. She’s totally jealous to the demon king, and she pressed on the matter where has the hero been all this time.

Maoyuu Maou Yuusha ep 01 & 02 : You will be mine, hero! My pleasure!

17 Jan

Summary

It was RPG-like setting. The humans were battling against demons. A hero, together with a white haired old fart, a mage chick, and errr… who’s the other remaining party member again? Bah, who’s the remaining one hardly matter. What’s matter is, it turned out that these party members are extra baggage after all, because the hero was strong enough travel all the way to the demon king’s castle by himself just fine. Only that he’s freaked out that the demon king is actually a female, and she has two watermelons on her chest. After some useless banters with the totally dumb and clueless hero, boing-boing-chan managed to convince him to join her side instead.
