I’m dead serious, Kazuto & Shino really had luck on their side. They’re already gone if no asspulls were done there.
Overall, Phantom Bullet arc was pretty decent because it had a sense of death & survival like SAO arc but not strong enough. I’m not a fan of dramas from this series. They were just too forced but the action parts were really good to watch.
I suppose the next arc will be Caliber right? The episode is out now but I’m waiting for FFF to release it.

This anime is my personal highlight for the season. It’s a bit shame that Urobuchi didn’t involve too much for this season. The screenwriter is a new guy, even the animation studio has been changed too which is Tatsunoko. Still, Production I.G. is involved in the anime production.
Regardless of these changes, they still keep the dystopian look & feel and it looks more of the same. I’m really glad about that. Only the difference is the sharpness of the animation but it isn’t a big deal though. Musics are awesome as always from Yugo Kanno. He remixed a little bit for the Psycho-pass theme music.
This new season also introduces a line of new characters for the investigation team. They are alright I guess. There’s a new villain too but wouldn’t you believe that even the harem king Kirito is a criminal too? I’m not joking guys.
That aside, Akane is a pretty bad-ass woman now, just like him. The scene that implied her smoking got me right in my heart though. Well, everyone misses him so much right?

I’ve been wanted to post this but finally… another new TV series on deck. Of course it’s being made by KyoAni but that’s not the reason why I should look forward into this.
Firstly, if you have watched Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu, you’ll see a familiar mascot throughout this series, so nostalgic but it’s not Bonta. Second, both of them originated from Shoji Gatoh. Third, both anime were directed by Yasuhiro Takemoto. This is probably the fourth Gatoh x Takemoto collaboration since Hyouka, preceded by FMP Fumoffu & The Second Raid. “So what is the meaning of this?”, you might ask that.
It’s been about 14 years since The Second Raid anime showed up. Full Metal Panic! is one of my favorite anime series of all time not only because of the characters and the story, but it had the best setting transition from school-life-to-military-life hands down. The main novel series had already ended. What I’m trying to tell you is it’s about time KyoAni should make a 3rd season & probably the final one. Fans including me are eagerly waiting for it to happen but one can dream right? If not possible, then Gonzo should take it back. Koichi Chigira, you started it all so if you please…?
I’ve read the info about this anime & apparently this is the next Gatoh x Takemoto collaboration so I should give it a shot. With that, hopefully at the end of this series they should announce a new season of Full Metal Panic!. If that happens, I might be like crazy guy screaming everywhere but that absolutely won’t happen LOL!
Seems I talk too much about something unrelated LMAO. BTW, comedy is decent. I laughed at the Bonta ripoff part (perhaps Sousuke is in there LOL). And I’m so surprised that KyoAni took 360 degrees change in terms of their fanservice policy hahahaha. Never saw that coming though.

Finally Minako has arrived at the scene. Artemis’s voice is just… special though.
Amagi Brilliant Park soon.
#8: Minako -Sailor V- (Mirrorcreator | DL Pastes)
Seems mid-term exam week is over & now having a week of vacation before the 2nd half of the semester begins. This is the only chance so I can finish all the re-encoding tasks that are supposed to be done by now including Psycho-Pass 2 & Amagi Brilliant Park which I haven’t started yet. Then, we’ll be able to catch up with the recent episodes, thus maintain my re-encoding schedule (depends on the fansub release schedules).
For now, here’s your weekly killing massacres treatment. Sooner or later, the fight between the Jeagers & Night Raid will be one hell of the battle.

That topic aside, my 3DS friend code is 3067-6895-8878. I’m killing time with Pokemon Y & Super Smash Bros. Feel free to add me so we can trade/battle/share in Pokemon games & go smashing each other in SSB. To be honest, I’m still not a good fighter in SSB LOL.
This part is even worse than Oberon/Sugou. Why are all bad guys in this series are psychopaths? Damn that screams though…
Not gonna lie, the fight was awesome hands down. Seems another girl joins Kirito’s harem chart, I’m not surprised though.
Both episode titles may be different; ep 12 has the actual Japanese kanji (“Maboroshi no jūdan” (幻の銃弾)), while ep 13 has katakana characters (“Fantomu Baretto” (ファントム・バレット)) but literally, the translations are just the same which is “Phantom Bullet”. Well, it was fansub’s decision to translate them BTW.
#12 & #13: Phantom Bullet (EP12 | EP13)
Finally we’ll get a closure to this series. I was expecting this as another 11-13 episodes series, but I’m quite disappointed with the production team’s decision to end it with only 2 episodes. The plot is quite rushed, plus there was no explanation whatsoever about how Bizon survived though.
The short sequel was alright, but now I think it is too late for them to correct the mistakes. It seems they wanted to end this anime once and for all ASAP. Oh well, 6.5/10 is my overall score for this series.
