Spring 2016 Pre-Season Impressions

Hello, it is that time again where I look at what I will be watching, and announce what my weekly reviews will be for this new season. I would like to state that April I am taking a break from blogging. So, weekly reviews, although I have not decided if I will do individual posts or a three in one, probably the first one, they will be out at the start of May. I also will not be focusing on individual series like last time. I will put focus on two series however, but that will be for the first three episodes instead of first episode. Simply put it, there will just be this post, a three episode test, a mid-season impressions, and final impressions. So I guess it is time to begin.

KonoSuba Ep 7 Review: Kazuma Dies Again

So, that title. Does that count as a spoiler? I mean it is a comedy so probably not really. I am not sure. It probably does though, just saying. So, yeah, not sure what else to say, but the series seems to become more enjoyable with each passing episode like Luck & Logic becomes less and less enjoyable each episode. With it getting closer and closer to the final episode, although that is still five more episodes, let’s get started.

The Plot:

As the title of this review suggests Kazuma dies. However the episode begins with him in a familiar world like episode one when he passed on. He questions if he really did die and is unsure exactly, although after a few seconds he realized he did.

konosuba ep 7 1

Flashing back some time Kazuma explains what happened after they beat Verdia. Winter soon came and his debt piled up more and more.

While Kazuma is annoyed by his debt, and Aqua not helping by complaining that Kazuma does not praise her more. He says she is the source of debt and wants to leave. This ongoing battle happens for a short time. Kazuma mentioning he nearly freezes to death at night. However now that Verdia is defeated the quests are plentiful, even more so since anyone who helped fight Verdia got a reward which will last them through winter.

konosuba ep 7 2

So, the group decides to go on a quest. A slight hint, (after reading what each light novel is about I knew, but I already assumed), of what the final boss in this arc will be, the group goes on a quest to hunt snow sprites. Kazuma is a little suspicious since Darkness is a little too excited for the fight.

The group gets into some winter clothing. Personally I think Megumin’s outfit looks the best of the three girls. Aqua comes in at a close second. Enough about the woman’s fashion. The sprit killing goes rather easy. Aqua wants to catch a few to save for later to make the food cold and drinks cold come summer time. For once her uselessness is thinking ahead.

konosuba ep 7 5So, Megumin decides to do her one-shot-one-kill-ultimate-super-attack, explosion. Which she proudly kills only 8 of the little sprits. She falls into the snow. But without another word a large snowstorm comes. The Winter Shogun, a creature that was brought here and abandon by someone who was reincarnated.  The Winter Shogun does not take to kindly to the killing of the cute fuzzy ball Snow Sprits.

Aqua apologizes for what she did and releases the ones she captured. Darkness gets rather pleased when Kazuma shoves her face in the ground. Although Kazuma is still rather annoyed that Megumin is playing dead. Kazuma goes to throw his weapon aside to apologize, although it is too late and he gets killed.

konosuba ep 7 6

Back to where the episode began Kazuma realized all this. A goddess appears before him and mourns for this death. She is rather kind, and her name is Eris. The name sounds familiar, well back in episode two when Aqua was trying to make money the goddess of the word, currency, and all that is Eris. That is the goddess before Kazuma.

konosuba ep 7 7

Eris tells Kazuma will be reborn into a nice, wealthy, and such a pleasant life in Japan. After a few seconds Kazuma has a teary eyed thing going realizing the world he just died in was not so bad, despite all its problems.

Just as she prepares Kazuma to go to his now third life in the series, Aqua interferes. She healed his body so he can come back. Eris says people can only be reborn ones. She is also referring to Aqua as Senpai. Although much like the line goes, Senpai does not notice her. Aqua insults her and even tells Kazuma to steal her breast pads if she does not let him go. Eris lets him leave.

konosuba ep 7 8

Back in the other world, Kazuma wakes up with the girls surrounding him. They abandon the quest and make their way home. Although realizing there is still the problem with their lack of funds, Kazuma, although annoyed about a lot in this world, is slightly content.

konosuba ep 7 10

Overall Thoughts:

I enjoyed this episode. It was about the same as last weeks. I think my most enjoyable one was episode 4 or 5.  But this one was rather fun in its own right. Between the problems that they now have to deal with and setting up more in this world, each passing episode makes me want to see more of it.

I did read what the plot for each novel is. It is one thing that saddens me is that we will only see a fraction of it. Despite all the laughs it does a wonderful job hinting at other parts of the world. Such as Eris, the Destroyer, and how there are plenty other people reborn from Japan there. The Winter Shogun showed off their impact. The show with the humor just blends it in so well it can be missed. This episode really demonstrated that perfectly.

As a whole though it might not of been the humor that I enjoyed this episode, since that is what I mostly look forward to, but the plot and seeing those subtle hints and realizing some made this episode much more fun.

A part of me is tempted to go back and rewatching, not thinking about the review or anything, just to see what other things I could have missed that I did not catch on the first time. To me it feels like there are more things out there. I do not know. For now this show has its little surprises that appear every once and awhile which makes it so much more fun.

Overall Enjoyment: 8.5/10

As always I would love to hear your thoughts on this episode.

Fire Emblem Fates Post 2: Birthright Waifu

February Update 2016

Well February is here, so yes to that. Right now there are only three things on my mind I would like to bring up. One is just an idea so I will start with that.

Potential Blog Break

With the fact I am graduating soon, and I am still uncertain by like 90%, but I think I might take a break from blogging. Well sort of. This would just be the month of March or April. However I run into a few problems, if I do it in March, I would still be doing weekly reviews. If I do it in April and would like to do weekly reviews I would still be doing them. So there is the dilemma.

At the same time because I graduate in May and I do not want risk taking a break only to either never return, which is very unlikely, or only to have to come back to being only able to do one post a week due to working full time.

Anyway, I am still undecided on this idea. I will know more come the March Update.

niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice

Series Reviews

Alright so now series reviews. Last month I set days aside on when I would like to come out with them. Being busy with school really got in my way. I still want to do them. But if I have an idea for them I will do my best, but I am not putting any series reviews on the schedule. Right now I would have liked to of done Date a Live S2, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, and Digimon Adventure Tri. So far I got to none of these. I still would like to, but I am not putting any days aside for them or any future series reviews. So if they come out it might be a weekend or I will try to write them days or even weeks in advance before uploading them.

Posts in General

Ok, so the last thing. In the past I have done a few posts on a single day. From now on my aim is to make sure it is only a single post a day. I also am going to aim to make sure that there is a day free between posts, with exception of weekends and other reasons. Anyway that is it. Time to talk about some of the posts that will be out in the next month.

Upcoming Posts

Fire Emblem Fates Impressions (Working on what I will do)

Anyway I have wanted this game for a while. I am one of the lucky people that get the Collector’s Edition. So I was thinking of doing a series of posts on it. The Collector’s Edition has all three versions in one. It takes me awhile to beat games. I have two general ideas of what way I will set up the posts. I will do a poll up till the 19th (when the game comes out) to decide on what to do.

dlcs

So I am thinking I will be doing 4 posts on it over the next few weeks or months.  One post, this month, will focus on the first six chapters before the choice on the route I will take. Then the following three posts will be my thoughts on each route. This is one option.

dlcs 2
Both this image and the one before were from a DLC in Awakening, the process to get images from the game take while and this is as big as they get for future reference.

Another option is to still do the first one on the first 6 chapters. Then do brief thoughts on the game as I progress, maybe do a post weekly that comes out on weekends or whenever I make a good amount of progress. I would still be discussing my thoughts; it would just be shorter posts and probably more focused on if I am struggling on something, what classes I went for, which my team is, and things like that.

To date I only played Fire Emblem Awakening and am currently replaying on Hard Mode. I hope to finish by the time Fates comes out.

So here is the poll. My guess when this post will be out is February 21. It will be on the side as well.

Birthday Post

Random birthday post is another type of post coming out this month. My birthday is the 22. I did a post last year about my 15 favorite anime. I know that list has dramatically changed since then. I want to do something different this year. I might update that list, personally I want to do something different. But either way there will be some random, personal post about me that day.

 

Alright other things coming out this month.

Top Fives and The Favs, that Poll I will be closing this weekend.

February 3: I look ahead six months (I the American Otaku)

February 5: KonoSuba Review

February 8: Top 5 Girls who Pretend to be Boys/Tomboys

February 12: KonoSuba Review

February 15: The Favs 5 A Certain Magical Index

February 19: KonoSuba Review

February 21: Fire Emblem Fates Post 1

February 22: Random Birthday Post

February 24: Top Five Amazingly Badass Characters

February 26: KonoSuba Review

February 28: Fire Emblem Fates Post 2 (depends if option 2 is winner in the poll)

February 29: The Favs Kiddy Girl-AND

Lastly the posts that are going up on those days are scheduled to change if need be due to school work taking priority.

 

On the last note, The Favs polls will be changing. For the next poll you can decide what will be in that poll for the series I talk about. If I don’t see any comments by the weekend after this post goes up, well I will start a new poll at random.

Also if you have any thoughts on what you would like to see for a future Top Five post, please suggest them. One reason why they originally stopped was due to running out of ideas. I like doing those posts and want to go on longer. I give shout outs to the bloggers, and people on social media who thought the idea. Some that are up and coming are from other bloggers.


As always I hope you enjoyed.  If you have any thoughts, ideas, or anything you would like to see here feel free to comment. If that does not work try to contact me through social media.
