Ao no Exorcist Chapter 26 – Rin and Shiemi? Fangasm!

Ao no Exorcist chapter 26 is scanlated and I just died of fangasm, I tell you. xD Because there was an awesome RinxShiemi-szene in there! I’m so happy and I’m so glad I ship RinxShiemi, those two are just too cute for a shounen manga.

Aside from the awesome RinxShiemi- szene when she hugs him and they both blush and… omg it was so great! Well, aside from that, I really liked this chapter, because I think it has been very hard for Rin since the Vatican made him learn to control his flames and I’m not just talking about the slow process of learning: he also lost all of his friends including his love interest. The time right bevore the incident, was probably the first time in Rins life when he has real friends and had the feeling of belonging somewhere and then suddenly it’s all gone. He has to face yeat again that he is a monster, he feels very guilty, he lost all of his friends, the girl he has a crush on and if he’s not super-careful, he’ll be killed. Seeing that he has a very short temper, it was bound to happen, he’ll explode again sometime and of course, it did and now the Vatican wants to see him dead.

Poor Rin, seriously, he’s actually such a nice huy with such a soft heart and he loves his friends so much, but he has to go through all this shit. It made me so happy when all of his friends decided to go and rescue him, that they’re truly “real” friends who will stand by his side, even if he’s in deep shit. even if they can’t forgive him just yet, they can’t leave him alone and seriously, I just loved Bon when he said why he was so pissed. I really thought it would be the “Son of Satan”-stuff, but this didn’t even matter to him, although he hates Satan so much.

And of course, Shiemi is the only one who can enter Rins cell. *cough* While this is pretty obvious in terms of the direction the manga is moving with those two, I think she really is the one who’s best suited to get him out of there. The reason is pretty simple: because she’s the only one who was never afraid of Rin and the only one who knew that his flames wont hurt her, so when he went a bit wild, she was able to touch hug him and show him how much she trusts him. While the others are still his friends as well, I don’t think they would’ve been able to approach Rin this openheartly.


Junketsu + Kareshi chapter 9 – the almighty fiancée

Chapter 9 is scanlated, but there was something bothering me that pops up quite often.

All right, first of all they managed to rescue the guy who wanted to kill himself and turns out he was the guilty one in this case, too. Suspension, everyone happy again, case closed. Of course, the club is now approved and they can finally do their work, if they find clients, that is. Actually I think they might will have more work comming from the student council, than from the normal students.

What pissed me off a bit was the apperance of Akis finacée, or at least that’s what she calls herself. I may be a bit sensitive to this, because I’ve seen Hanasaku Iroha yesterday and there was a fiancé, too. I still don’t see any reason why a fiancée is such a great danger? They’re just engaged due to various reasons and being engaged, doesn’t mean you’re already married. Hell, even marrige is no real reason to stop anymore, when you think about the divorce-statistics (in big cities, half of the married couples get a divorce), but every time a fiancé/e suddenly comes into play, it’s as if the world ends here: the almighty fiancé/e who has the power over your loved one. Yeah maybe, but sure not his/ her heart in most anime/manga-cases. In the end, what matters is the one he/she loves. In realiy, there are tons of engagements being cancelled, so don’t make it seem as if a fiancé/e is equal to being married until one dies. Things just don’t work like this anymore.

Cut the cheap fiancée-drama please, I bet she’s not even a real treat in the end and will be overcome.

Let the summer season 2011 begin! – Nurarihyon 2, Sacred Seven and Kami-sama no Memo-chou

The first animes this summer have aired now and while the weather is pretty crappy right now where I live, I’ve taken my chance to look into a few of the first episodes that came out. And if I may say so: it didn’t start too bad, but I want to watch quite a lot anime this season, so there is more to come.

Nurarihyon no Mago: Sennen Makyou is the second season of Nurarihyon no Mago and doesn’t really start where the first season ended, but I haven’t read the manga (probably never will), so I don’t know if this was actually what was supposed to come next. While the first season ended with a huge fight, the fight was only mentioned once during the whole first episode of season 2. Instead of a normal episode or the beginning of a new arc, we get to see some background information on Rikuo. To be exact: we get to see what he was like when he was an eight year old kid. Apparently he liked to play pranks… what the hell? Well, whatever. It’s about the first time he transformed into his yokai form and what was weird for me was, that the voice actors didn’t chance. Rikou has two voice actors: one for his human form and another for his (more adult-like) yokai form, so his yokai voice is a lot deeper. I do admit that his yokai form looks older, even when he was a kid, but he looked like a 12-year-old at most and the voice actor wasn’t even trying to sound like a child. Meaning: a child with the voice of an adult, this is bullshit. Other than that, the episode was ok, I guess. I liked the first season, but I was never a real fan, so I kind of got what I expected. It was all right.

Sacred Seven is an original Anime (at least I think so) and seems to be one of those battle shounen animes with stereotypical characters and some nice action. What surprised me, was how dark it is, because I expected it to be a very lighthearted anime, while it actually has some darker tones to it. For example, we have random people getting turned into stone and those stones are getting destroyed, meaning these people are being killed. The main character has been gone berserk at some point and send an older teenager into hospital for 8 months. That must have been pretty hard… well, seems like his special power ran wild. For his “real” power to be awakened, a blonde and rich loli-girl gives him a special stone and *BAHM* he’s got great control over his power and kann kick some ass easily. I wouldn’t say it was “good”, but so far it wasn’t “bad” either (well, the maid-army was weird, but who cares), so I’ll see what this’ll turn into.

Kami-sama no Memo-chou is based on a novel and tells the story of a group of NEETs with a little girl called “Alice” at the top of them. Apparently she is a NEET detective and while shehardly ever leaves her room at all, she gathers information through the Internet/her computers and her “underlings” to solve the cases. The main character somehow gets dragged into this and finds himself helping the NEET detective. And this is the story of the anime with the first episode, that made the biggest impression on me so far, because it was really good. Aside the fact that the first episode is 48 minutes long, so it has more time to show the audience something interesting than the 24-minute-episodes of the other animes, it was interesting and has character I’d really like to see again. Yeah, and it looks nice, but that’s not too imporatnt for me. The preview for next week seemed nice, so right now I’m really looking foward to see more of this anime.
