And call it, BANG DA SE~
|Whoa I just realized we only have about five episodes left of K! What will we do when it is all over? I guess we will just have to wait for another series with fantastic animation in the winter season. At least the story has kind of appeared so that is a plus I suppose, but what are you thinking about Kyokai? Are you prepared for the end of K?|
|Time sure flies, Fosh! We were just beginning to enjoy fall but here we are, almost at the brink of another season and I can already feel Winter sweeping in. With just few episodes left, I am glad to see things moving and the plot chugging along with more information dump and discoveries along its way. For now Winter doesn’t seem as exciting as Fall but still, K has definitely proved to be a good blogging companion.|
Fushimi, while looking at the disastrous delicacy combination, “… I’m fine where I stand, thank you very much!”
// Kranky Mad Fushimi – Within every organization you are bound to find the Fushimi-ish themed characters or better known as the super unmotivated. In the fabulous world of K, it appears that Fushimi hates being ordered around especially from the likes of Reisi or just about anyone else that works for Scepter 4. So, why does he act this way during this episode? Personally I think he would rather run around swinging a sword without the whole responsibilities of being a member of Scepter 4! Sure why not just do whatever you want bro and see how far you go in life. Thankfully Reisi is around to motivate Fushimi to work hard and stay on point, but how long will he stand by and take order after order from scepter 4? Surely he has some secret plan to become some rebel again right? However we are near the end of the series so I don’t think we will have time for that right now. With all that said what do you think about Fushimi so far? Is he really unmotivated or do you think he is truly working hard for scepter 4? I think he has something sneaky incoming for everyone. I mean he could back-stab Reisi somehow, but with his amazing king powers that might make his assassination attempt damn near impossible.
Reisi, “Clearly, my sense for techno music is higher than Scepter 4 combined.”
// With Love from Blue King – Meet the S again and as I pointed out earlier, we saw him in action this episode while ordering people around, planning heists over his head and even making tea. Reisi is definitely busy but this episode we finally glean on the fact that he’s very fastidious. He doesn’t just sit around in his office but actually keeps tabs of everything that is necessary, including the flying patter of Silver king’s spaceship aka blimp. The dude has definitely been up to something; though, I would really like to know more rather than just another ‘he’s mysterious, powerful blah de blah’. Supposedly, all kings are powerful but everyone has their own brand of power and I really want to prove my theory right on Adolf K. Weismann (I swear, this is a bad joke on Hitler with reference of Himmelreich line on his pimped up blimp), being the founder/discoverer of King powers.
Shiro, “I told you not to touch the red button, Neko!”
//Kooky ol’ Neko– Time for your weekly dose of Neko! Because with very passing episode her adorable power increases; however even though she is cute all the time there are several moments when her moe power messes everything up, like the short event with her pushing and smashing ever glowing button in the helicopter? Because hey logic tells DO NOT TOUCH THE RED BUTTONS especially inside an advanced military machine unless you are in the crazy worlds of Upotte, Strike Witches or Girls und Pazer! Maybe there is a spin off series for Neko like cat-girls und helicopters? Even though Neko was bored and decided to shut off her brain for a bit and press lots of random buttons no one was seriously injured so I can’t possibly blame her for being herself, but damn who know that Kuro knew how to pilot? I guess samurai in the future are multi-talented in the art of cooking, saving people and possessing advanced piloting licenses for just about everything…so what other moe-themed-anime-characters act similar to Neko in terms of “OOOH WOW SHINEY RED BUTTON.” I can only think of Hakase from Nichijou right now?
// Krazy Shiro Progress – Oh, we are still figuring him out but I am fine with this as at least he’s not being completely useless. Of course, he still needs help and has found real nakama in Kuroh and Neko. Rather than being carefree about it, I’m liking that he’s taking responsibility and using his head in discovering the truth about himself (the gadget play was cool too; do we have another tech wizard like Fushimi here?). His play for arresting Silver King wasn’t the sharpest plan but I guess, Reisi was just looking for an excuse to at least question the mysterious figure for a certain imbalance in their supposed peaceful city. Even when there was a blatant bombing of the ship, I’m sure Silver King is alive and plotting his weird plan somewhere. Neither Shiro nor Scepter 4 should stop their plan of apprehending and at least questioning this mysterious culprit of his wrongdoings. The bomb was just a firework display of his power.
//Extra FUN Stuff
Kuroh, “I want to cosplay Sister… Can I?”
Fushimi, “Who knew, tanks could be…. s-ssso… moe….”
Tomokazu Sugita, “Which voice would you like? Gintoki, Kyon or Hidenori’s?”
Reading doujins during work has its distractions…
SPIRIT BOMB TIME!
Awesome, another fantastic episode this week even though it was focused on Scepter 4 doing stuff, but I really loved seeing the various military vehicles appearing like the trucks and helicopters? The only thing missing were some tanks and missiles being fired in all directions. However, the CGI on some of the cars seemed to be a bit terrible? Then again I have seen worse CGI cars and trucks especially in the very first episode of Gyrozetter and yes I actually tried it out! Other than the military stuff I wouldn’t mind owning that MASSIVE BLIMP in the sky, I need one! Wait a minute I wonder how much that thing cost to build and maintain? I yelled at my monitor this week because that long haired dude blew it up! Wow really? How could you do such a thing bro! Maybe he just could not pay the high insurance and decided to have an “accident” while flying? Anyway that is enough rambling from me this week.
I must say, now I am really enjoying K. I have Shinsekai and Psycho-Pass to keep my mind busy but when I need an all around entertainer, K delivers with its spot on animation and nice pacing. What I enjoyed most in this episode is the underlying humour. It’s not on your face like Gintama but it’s not so niche as maybe Joshiraku that it goes over your head. I highly enjoyed how Reisi’s after tea delicacy was ruined by a blob of red beans paste. This fixation with red beans is almost similar to Sarutobi’s natto and Hijikata’s mayo-craze from Gintama and I did chuckle to myself as Reisi ignored it and Fushimi didn’t even come near in fear of being force-fed that. This subtle humour worked in lightening the mood of heavy dialogue that ensued later.
Silver King is definitely up to something and the way he’s been keeping tabs on Shiro’s progress and everything that transpired around Tatara’s death. The how and why is still foggy but I’m sure, we’ll know soon. From the preview, it’s easy to decipher that we will get more info-dump on Silver and Gold king and how they ended up sharing their territories of earth and sky. Some Homra action is always welcome so really looking forward to seeing them again. So, readers, how is your journey with K going so far?
Next week, it’s puzzle time da se on K~
