Some thoughts on Log Horizon after my rewatch

Recently me and my cousin watched the entirety of Log Horizon (we finished the 2nd season in like two days….). This was the second time I’ve seen this show and while I still liked it I came away a little grated at a few things, so I figured I’d jot down some thoughts.

Note: I watched it in a rush with family so I didn’t take any screenshots. I apologize for the lack of contextually useful ones. My posts on Log Horizon feel dated now, but if you are curious, you can find some here.

Note 2: This is very much a rant and I am sure a show with this much ambition doesn’t really deserve it, but I just wanted to get it off my chest.

The first few Gamers episodes surprised me and blew me away

[HorribleSubs] Gamers! - 01 [1080p]-00_06_21.798-435.jpg

[If you are not up to date with Gamers, watch the 2nd episode before reading this post. Trust me, that 2nd episode is really good and significantly better than the 1st.]

The anime season was well under way when I returned from my cross country trip. Not knowing much about any of the anime that have aired, I figured I’d do the thing I do every season and watch some. I started with Fox Spirit Matchmaker, and for all its faults, it charmed me enough that I watched all four episodes.

I wanted something light and easily digestible, so I watched Knights and Magic (my friends said it was good wish fulfillment stuff and I love those stories). I opened Tsurezure Children next. I absolutely love the manga and the anime most certainly did not disappoint.

Then I rolled myself around to Gamers. The title ‘Gamers’ sounded garbage enough that I figured it would make good fluff entertainment.

I am upset that Elf Yamada is not the main girl in Eromanga Sensei

I am sure folk have plenty of things to say about Eromanga Sensei. Some folk don’t like the fanservice, others don’t like the imouto romance and so on. This post is probably closer to the latter complaint. I don’t especially mind the imouto love story per say but the fact THAT THERE IS A MUCH BETTER RELATIONSHIP AND IT IS NOT THE MAIN FOCUS IS WHAT UPSETS ME.

I am of course talking about Elf Yamada.

Winter 17 Updated Impressions

Hello, I figured I should make a blog post, so here is another talking about my current takes on stuff I’m watching this season. I have only finished a small number of shows thus far, but this is practically a final impressions post at this point.

In unrelated news, I’ve been watching Gundam 00! You can see my progress here if you are interested.

Quick Winter 17 Impressions

Happy New Year everyone! What do you mean it’s been a month already. It is not 12 PM yet! Okay, I’ve been bad about this blog this month and this post too isn’t very thorough. Still, I wanted something out this month!

Anyway, this is just a quick list of the few (surprisingly many this time) shows I’ve watched and some thoughts.

Pondering how Detective Conan will end

Apologies for writing nothing but Detective Conan posts (have even more in store possibly), but it’s literally all I’ve been watching recently.

I recently caught up to Detective Conan (yes, I did it, but it was an unbelievably self-destructive exercise given how fast I did it).I’ve been pondering how it will end for quite some time. I do this often for a lot of long lived series, but this particular series has confused me a bit more than usual.

Note: This is just hypothetical question asking, I won’t mention recent spoilers or anything.

The Grass Court Queen is one of my favorite Detective Conan characters

When I first started watching Conan, I switched to the manga eventually and raced ahead. I watched a few episodes a bit later and the London Arc was what I watched. I watched it because finally after decades, it had actual romantic development between Kudo and Ran. And while I was super happy about that, I came away with incredible admiration for one particular case character.

Now, as I hit the episodes on my current watch (617-621), and got into the case, a sudden anticipation hit me when the final tennis match started. I was shaking with excitement, for what awaited me at the end of this arc were the Herculean feats of Minerva Glass, the Grass Court Queen.

Note: Spoilers so go watch those episodes/read the corresponding chapters.

Detective Conan and Cool Detectives

I’ve been marathoning Detective Conan as of late (it’s pretty much all I’ve been doing lately). I watched a lot of the anime before and was even up to date with the manga at one point. I’ve been really enjoying my rewatch of the show, but have found it hard to articulate exactly what it is I love so much about Detective Conan.

Irrespective of what muddled words I come up with in this post, I want to emphasize that Detective Conan (or Case Closed) is a legitimately great show everyone should try.
