In all of the shows coming out for this anime season, Citrus is the only one that I have actually seen the original material. The manga was popular for a time in the school where I was studying and people were lending their copies of the manga. Out of curiosity, I followed suit and it was quite an entertaining read. Just like the manga, the anime delivers the same amount of fun. Continue reading “Reaction – Citrus Episode 1”
EPISODE REACTION – This animation series is the gift that keeps on giving as we get a twenty or more minutes run time for this episode. As each episode is released, more questions remained unanswered and new ones are gradually raised. It is at this point that I am starting to find the plot for RWBY treading a very “safe” path, as it were.
Other than that, we will be tackling the second episode of the series’ fifth volume. Spoilers, as usual, are still abound and thus avert your eyes if you do not take kindly to these things.
EPISODE REACTION – In the span of four volumes, Rooster Teeth has turned RWBY from a upstart dream project to a full-fledged animated series that can properly compete with present titles in the animation industry. The promotional advertising for this volume has been vastly different and larger in coverage compared to the other seasons. Rooster Teeth has definitely done a good job making RWBY famous, for old and new viewers alike.
In light of the new episodes that have been released for the fifth volume, I will discuss key events which were interesting to me as I watched the first episode. If you do not take kindly to spoilers, avert your eyes!
REACTION – We continue where we left off in the previous episode as the Colossal Titan dives headlong into the pinned down Eren from the tops of the wall. The resulting impact blew and burnt most of the Scouts such as Mikasa and Hanji.
REACTION – In this episode, we continue where we left off after Boruto’s teacher snaps and tries to attack him and his friends. Boruto and the others are under the impression that their teacher is furious of their recent behavior and asks for forgiveness – but that doesn’t really convince their teacher.
REACTION – The episode focuses on three things: Akane’s track meet, Kotaro’s publishing offer, and Chinatsu’s feelings for Kotaro. For Kotaro’s case, he was contacted by the publishing company who received his novel manuscript. Despite strong objections from her mother in pursuing writing as a career, he goes to meet with the publisher anyways. However, Kotaro was met with disappointment as the publisher states that he … Continue reading Tsuki ga Kirei – Episode 6
REACTION – We return to the story as the reinforcing 104th Survey Corps clean out the titans attacking the group of Christa, Ymir, Reinhart and Berholdt. It is very evident now to everyone that Ymir was a titan and Christa is the disowned daughter of a noble family. The entire group convenes on top of the walls and takes the now in coma, Ymir, back to … Continue reading Attack on Titan 2 – Episode 5
REACTION – This anime series has probably taken a blunt move and that is acknowledging Sagiri’s romantic love for her older brother, Masamune. After reading the “300-page love letter” of a manuscript, Izumi and Sagiri somewhat confess their feelings for each other? But not at the same wavelengths. Masamune says that he loves her sister, but only as an older brother. Whilst Sagiri hints that she … Continue reading Eromanga-sensei – Episode 5
REACTION – The third episode shows Yoshino as she struggles to learn the charms of Manoyama and thinking about its future. She realizes the need for this after not performing as well as she hoped in an interview with the local TV station. The “Kingdom of Chupakabra” has been invited to a regional mascot exhibit where each of the region’s towns show off their tourism mascots. … Continue reading Sakura Quest – Episode 3
REACTION – Nothing particularly big happening in this episode. As the sports festival begins, the school is riled up with all the common sports events being organized. The episode shows off what this series does best and that is the portrayal of adolescence in middle school. Kotarou somewhat displeased about having to participate in sports event considering his lack of athleticism. He does whatever odd jobs … Continue reading Tsuki ga Kirei – Episode 2
