Posted in Anime Seasons, Shirogane no Ishi: Argevollen, Summer 2014, Super Robots, Text Articles with tags , , , on 2014/07/04 by doublegomez

It’s time for the resident robot show of summer and well, this one actually holds up pretty well.

So yes the robots are CG…

But some of the designs are cool.

But the action is really cool

And this leads exactly into what you think it does.

So yeah this show is extremely promising. The action is satisfying and if that alone continues, it’s a successful robot show. The show has already been licensed by Sentai Filmworks, and is being simulcasted on CrunchyRoll. Check it out, it’s worth your time.

More images can be seen at Yaraon.

That’s right, another summer, another series of Free to show you all the male fanservice you need.

Seriously there not even trying to hide it, and oddly enough that’s mildly interesting. But on the whole this looks like it’s going to be the same show just slightly later in it’s timeline.

The rest can be seen at Yaraon.

Fruit Store Operation, Parfait Construction, and You. JoJolion Chapter 33

Posted in JoJo's Year, Text Articles with tags , , , , , , on 2014/06/23 by OnePixelJumpMan

This chapter is weirdly put together. There’s a long explanation by Norisuke about how he runs his store sandwiched between some plot progression and our next source of mysterious intrigue. I don’t mind, though, because it brings in some kinda funny moments. After Yotsuyu’s fight dragging on, it’s nice to see Noisuke get even more spotlight.

You can read the chapter here. I promise. IT’S REAAAAL!!

“So this garbage is your trailer for me?” Tohru Adachi P4A UUSH Trailer!

Posted in Persona, Video Games, Videos with tags , , , , , on 2014/06/19 by OnePixelJumpMan

Translation courtesy of ANN:

: The timing of the incident…
Yōsuke: If the culprit knows about you…
Chie: …You…!
Yōsuke: You’re kidding, right!?
Adachi: Hey! Long time no see, you guys!
: …Adachi…!
Adachi: Huh? Ahahaha, well, actually, I had intended to be good from now on…
Adachi: Huh? Oh, you’re here, too. I’m fake? Ah, OK, sure, I’m fake, I’m fake.
Adachi: This town’s future? Has nothing to do with me. I’ll do as I please. I have rules too, you know.
Narrator: “The world is still trash!” The completely self-centered cabbage detective: Tohru Adachi!
Adachi: Oh come on, is your savior really just this? That’s too bad. Looks like he’s just a kid who’s wet behind the ears.
Adachi: Haha… Idiot… Come on. Bring it.
Adachi: I’ll break in you kids as many times as it takes…

It’s good to see that Adachi’s toying, irreverent attitude made its way into gameplay. That he has a move where he knocks you over and laughs at what a little bitch you are may be the best thing in a game that has a title screen where a robot shatters a kid’s spine with a suplex. I hope he plays well.

Mushishi S2 Episode 10 “The Bottom of Winter” Preview Image and Synopsis and Special Annoucement

Posted in Anime Seasons, Mushishi, Spring 2014, Text Articles with tags , , , , , , on 2014/06/18 by OnePixelJumpMan

A mountain that refuses spring. The endless fall of snow and life that does not wake from hibernation. The master of the mountain’s intention… it is as though it is waiting for death.

So about that special announcement. According to the main news feed of the site, this is going to be the last episode of the broadcast. There are two more episodes in the season, but this is going to be “the last episode of the cour.” I didn’t see anything on the creator twitter, so I’m not sure what the intention is.

Either way, this “last” episode is going to be storyboarded by Nagahama and directed by Sohtome.
