Review-Roundup: Magimoji Rurumo 01, Zankyou no Terror 01, Persona 4: Golden 01

[C12] Majimoji Rurumo - 01.mp4 - 00003Instead of regretting that he has been a misogynistic pervert his entire life so far, he’s lamenting the fact that DESPITE that no girl has ever liked him. Yep… Magimoji Rurumo sure knows how to sell tragedies.

So far, I think I plan to blog Aldnoah.Zero, Zankyou no Terror and Akame ga Kill!. Persona 4: Golden may also be interesting but only if it can prove its existence with plot-twists and whatnot. But here are my first impressions for the following three series:

Magimoji Rurumo: A despicable pervert is stuck in a life of devoid of girls (and rightly so), but one day a witch appears before him since he had incidentally summoned her via some ritual. Then he stops her from saving his life while sacrificing her own because within minutes he had started to like her for some nonsense-reason. Then, a year or so later, she comes back and he has now a whole ticket-book with which he can order the girl to do magic. But then the talking cat informs him that when he used up all of those, he will die (… definitely, I mean, it’s kinda similar to the previous situation). But she doesn’t know that he will die this time around as well once more… And… It’s a fucking mess, guys!

Zankyou no Terror: Two weirdos with too much freetime do terrorist-stuff (without killing anyone) and a timid girl who’s also a bully-victim with serious anxiety-issues gets (more or less) dragged into their affairs. Also! A soundtrack by Yoko Kanno! (Yay!)

Persona 4: Golden: It’s Persona 4, but Yu is better at kicking ass and he has now an amnesiac tsundere-girl to take care of. Of course, this deserves a 1-cour-long anime series!

Persona 4 – 03 Review

Okay, so you may notice how I avert calling the main-character by his name, here’s why: He’s clumsy, lazy and has only basic understanding-capabilites. If you ask me that sounds like a description for a monkey rather than a human! Perhaps I will call him by his name when he levels up a bit…

This week the Midnight Channel is once again the centre of attention for all the fun-seeking teenagers in the boring little town of… wherever the story plays. And surprisingly as if last episode’s death wasn’t bad luck enough this time it’s even someone who actually had a fair share of screentime! But before the main-chara, Yousuke and Chie can help Yukiko, it’s time for Chie’s ‘Me&Me’-session so that she can man up enough for her own Persona. And once again we’re taught the valuable lesson that being evil is NOT bad… but not knowing that you are is!

Persona 4: The Animation – 02 Review

I said, I am yet to be impressed

Episode 02 – The Contractors Key

After last weeks opening episode for Persona 4, the question that has been on my mind (and probably some others too) is whether this second episode has managed to redeem itself.

I was tossing up between reviewing Persona 4 or Guilty Crown tonight but as you can see Persona won and I shall leave M0rg0rth to review Guilty Crown for tonight.

Saranaufogus:

This was another disappointing first episode of the season for me.

It is probably not as much of the show’s fault as it is my expectations of the show being somewhat different to what was delivered.
