Cross Ange – 19

Our hero Emma

That episode was one of the funniest things I saw since 2015 started. Cross Ange is still tongue in cheek as hell and it’s really good. I never thought they’d show Salia’s reasons for switching sides in such an hilarious way. I burst out laughing at the ultra cliché drowning save and balcony scene. Was even funnier as Ange wrecks her in 3 seconds after her delusional talk. They know Salia switching sides was stupid, so they thought they might as well make it hilarious. And it worked. I don’t even care that she went full stupid anymore. Ersha’s reasons are the most acceptable, as “I wanted to save dead kids” is much less stupid than “I want to be a main character” and “I want “real” friends”. But I think since they did that with Salia, they thought they might as well go all the way down and present Ersha and Chris’s reasons in an hilarious way as well. The EMBRYO KINDERGARTEN was a really good one.

Then there’s how Salia says Embryo sama, Ersha “san” and Chris “kun”. And the ring thing too. I’m impressed they had the courage to tell the muh pure waifu otakus to get lost. And then when I thought things couldn’t get any funnier, WHEELCHAIR LOLI DRAGON WHIP DOMINATION happened.  Sylvia is such a bitch. But she’s so funny. Every scene involving her since the knifing Ange twist has been hilarious. I wonder how she’ll end. I guess Ange will save Liza if she has the chance, even though she’s part of the reason why her life took a turn for the worse, she’ll say something like it’s thanks to her she’s who she is now.

And then there was the final scene with Embryo which I don’t really know what to think about. I’m really looking forward to next week. I take back what I said about how the 2nd half may be boring. All of the reveals in the dragon world part were super predictable from teh start of the show, but the show is getting really unpredictable now.

Looking forward to Persona 5

My body was not ready for Persona Lupin The Third edition. This is gonna be so much fun. Apparently the hero is voiced by Fukuyama Jun. I think the Japanese entertainment industry should contract less the same voice actors all the time and give more chance to newcomers, instead of always betting on money. They chose Fukuyama san cuz they know all his fangirls and fanboys gonna buy the game now.  Anyway, it feels like phantom thieves are in fashion again in Japan, with all the new Lupin The Third things besides the usual yearly ova, stuff like Rhythm Thief, anime adaptations of Kaitou Joker, Kaitou Kid, and now this. Kinda like idols. Idols exist for decades in Japan, but these past years a lot of companies noticed all the money they can milk from little girls’ parents and otaku, and all started their own idol themed thing. I think they noticed when AKB started making a lot of money, so around 7, 8 years ago,and with Idolxm@s ten years ago. So since around 2005.

Gundam G no Reconguista – 20

greco 2004

So the sewing woman is called Annette. I really like her for some reason. She doesn’t seem to care about anything. She just sews their suits and live her life. Even in the ED among the women she’s the only one not looking particularly genki. She just don’t give a cent about anything. Really nice how they actually mentioned she fixed the hole made by the syringe. Most shows wouldn’t have brought it up. It also served as a way to show some Aida x Bell too.

greco 2005 greco 2006

From the way things are going, Noredo will certainly end up piloting something. Hopefully things won’t be as predictable and I’m wrong. Hopefully she doesn’t get Genki’ed by Bellri in a tragic turn of events. I’m sick of (artificial newtype) cute girls dying which is why I haven’t watched Unicorn. One of the reasons I like G Reco so much is because it’s finally different than the usual pattern of:
starts in space
boy drops in a gundam
randomly falls in love with a girl
drops to earth
meets good people in the opposing faction
(artificial newtype) girl gets genki’ed
goes back to space
final battle

That’s also one of the reasons why Gundam Yugioh Tsubasa no Go Fighters was my favorite show of 2014 with Rainbow Live. It was a breath of fresh air like G Reco.

Bell almost killing himself in space this week trying to get into the G Self is the reason why they showed us the spatial localization in space training thing last episode. Else this scene or all the talk about the Venus spheres being gigantic and stuff would have been harder to get.

greco 2010

“Why did I hesitate?”
Because you’re a good girl and even though there’s human bombs in this episode, (sasuga Tomino, I haven’t seen Zambot 3 yet but I know this much thanks to SRW) you couldn’t ruin the GENKI and kill off a character now. I guess she just didn’t want to needlessly kill someone. Actually if I saw correctly she did off a few of the police MS, but at distance. Maybe it’s actually her first real battle. And actually hearing Raraiya’s screams since she rocket punched her made her react like so.

greco 2011greco 2017

She was crying because of her mistake too. Man Kun is cute. Chikkara too.
inb4 people going “Tomino is sexist, because Kun failed and she’s the one acting girly and putting on make up, while Chikkara was awesome sabering stuff while Kun just cried over her mistake.” Well, that’s not true! Chikkara is super girly too. She must take real good care of her hair.

greco 2013greco 2014

My sides. Plz Tomino give Kerbes and Ringo an happy end and don’t make them die. Why is Kerbes such a bro. Why Ringo’s hair is so gorgeous? The only hair beating Chikkara’s and Bellri’s parents is his.
How Raraiya puts back Ringo back in place telling him she went to Earth alone makes me realize Raraiya is probably the most experienced out of the three. At the very least she’s just as good as them. Raraiya didn’t get to talk with Flaminia yet because of the fight, it’ll happen next week surely.

greco 2015greco 2016greco 2020greco 2019

This week’s episode left us with such a cliffhanger. Gaen with tons of sabers and stuff sure is cool, it’s gonna be so awesome if G Reco gets in SRW. Really looking forward to next week for the rest of the fight.
Also I really liked how they did the stomping thing again.
