I have to be honest with you guys, this episode was a complete and total disappointment. Through out the vast majority of the episode Felicita, Liberta, and Nova were trying reunite a very cute kitten with its owner. These episodes can be done tastefully, in which there is palpable character, and plot development. In this episode there was neither. In the very beginning there was a flashback to when Felicita first joined the Arcana Famiglia, and how she became head of the sector known as “Sword.” It was a useless and pointless scene, and that is coming from a person who actually likes flashbacks.

Ok, so I’m really exited about Sword Art Online, but Xana is reviewing it for the site, so instead of a regular review, I will be choosing a quote from a show that I really enjoy (Dexter, Homeland, Friends, you get the idea), and using that quote to kinda explain the episode.

Sword Art Online episode 1

You seem uncertain. It’s uncomfortable, isn’t it? Just when you think you’ve answered all the questions, another one smacks you in the face. Life, life, life. Life is just like that. Which is why I prefer death.” –Dexter from Dexter

Please tell me what you think!

What?! A review from Lykos?? This is craziness! Haha, I’m pretty sure that’s what you all must be thinking, and for good reason!

Very first impression of Arcana Famiglia: pleasantly surprised. I was extremely worried that it was going to be one of those reverse harems that I love so much (sarcasm), but the animation was stellar, and I’m kinda liking all these male characters. Though I do worry about a main cast that is so big, but if the writers can actually tastefully develop all the characters and the relationships between them then we could have a decent fantasy/action anime on our hands folks. That would make me jubilant (working on my vocab XD), I’m a huge fan of anime haling from the action and fantasy genres. (more…)

Hi, yes, I didn’t die. Sorry about the long hiatus, Xana has explained it many times so I will not bore you with the details. I’m very aware that I owe you a Korra full season review, and a review for the first season of that Arkana whatever show. Here is the brutal truth; right now I don’t have any thoughts. When it comes to reviewing my mind is a blank. My writer’s block is stunningly crippling at the moment, but I assure you that when it dissipates I will be back to reviewing full force.

I thank you for your patients, and I’m sorry.

FINALLY! Finally I see a plot emerging…I think…maybe?  Episode fucking five, and just now a plot is starting. I have an affinity for fast paced shows, and in my opinion Zetman definitely does not fit into that category. It is episode five, and it seems as though just now the plot is slowly but surely starting to evolve. It appears as though the players all belong to a group or “family” as it is referred to by the leader called EVOL. From what I can glean EVOL runs on a strict set of rules, the players assimilate into typical human life, and work to remain secret to the humans, and have a peaceful relationship with them. This episode we also find out who the emo-haired, feminine featured dude is who has been skulking around in the past five episodes, he is a member of EVOL by the name of Haitani. He seems to have an interest in ZET in order to strengthen EVOL and overthrow the humans. Not the most original plot out there, but hey I’ll take it, better then no fucking plot. We also meet a creepy ass old guy who is a member of EVOL who has taken an interest in Kouga, his reasons for this have not really come to light yet.

Who the fuck is this Asami Sato character?! She seems like such a useless addition to the cast. The appearance of Asami is the first real qualm I have had with the Legend of Korra so far. Was she introduced just to create tension and confusion between Korra and Mako? Do I smell a love square(ish) thing emerging? Ok lets take a moment to draw this out: Bolin likes Korra, Korra likes Mako, Mako likes Korra? Mako most certainly likes Asami, who likes Mako back.  Pheww that is a mouthful. The dialog between Asami and Mako felt forced, on a first “date” who tells the other person about their personal financial woes? In addition, after knowing each other for a matter of days Asami is already telling Mako that he “makes her feel safe.” The scenes featuring these two just disrupted the flow of the episode, which was disappointing to say the least. I don’t at all mind the romance aspect to this show, in fact I think that it adds an important dimension to the series, especially because they are upwards of 17 years old (so I would expect nothing less of hormone driven teenagers), I just think that Asami is nothing short of a useless character who takes precious screen time away from characters I actually give a damn about. The one and only reason that Asami is at all an important character is because now her father is funding the Fire Ferrets so that they can compete in the Pro-bending championships. So I guess I should really be thanking Asami because now I will be treated to some more Pro-bending action scenes, I don’t have to like her though, do I?

This was a pretty boring and predictable episode…UNTIL THE END! Wow they are good at leaving you with cliffhangers so you tune in next week. Because of the exiting introduction of this “Sweeper” character, I’m actually looking forward to next week. The Sweepers character design is…interesting. It sure as hell doesn’t fit with the modern atmosphere and character design of the show, in addition it looks like he wields a pretty epic sword, and weapon design is pretty exiting to a anime weapon enthusiast like my self! A third intriguing aspect of The Sweeper is where he hales from. I can infer that he does not work for Amagi Corp. by Mitsugai’s reaction to his appearance, and he is not working for/on the side of the players, because of the fact that he kills those who break “the rules.” Does he privately/independently patrol the streets? I’m just going to have to keep watching to find out!
