So, I’m Guessing…

That Crunchyroll isn’t going to have the second season of RWBY? It’s not due until the 24th, so maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaybe. Looks good though…

It’s Been a While…

So I think I’ll talk about a LN for a little bit. I’m still following the Baka-Tsuki translation of Ichiban Ushiro no Daimou (Demon King at the Back of the Classroom). The twelve-episode anime series covered the first five novels — except for the last few paragraphs. Viewers may remember that Akuto and Peterhausen defeated the god Suhara (who was really just a computer), and Bouichiro, the time-traveling agent who wanted to kidnap the Law of Identity, Keena’s alter ego. In the last few omitted sentences, a second Keena shows up – a blonde who has, and remembers receiving the same hairpiece from Akuto as a child.

Pay Attention!

Seriously, I’ve got to start paying more attention to anime. How could I let news like this sneak up on me?

PV1 for new Fate / Stay Night series from Ufotable.

PV2 for new Fate / Stay Night series from Ufotable

In unrelated news, Ubu was surprised to find out a remake of Fate/Stay Night is expected later in 2014….

Enh, Maybe I’m Just Lazy

Lots of Minecrafting, some Sword of the Stars (1), and MTG. I just don’t have the patience for screenshots and captions, and showing how bad my writing skills have gotten.

Despite all that, I’m actually spending most of my time sorting cards. The current block release completes this week, and I still haven’t finished sorting all the old block that went out of date LAST year into the correct boxes. However the cat helped with sorting this morning. He’s a little weak on alphabetizing, color coordination, and even keeping the cards on the table, but gets an “A” for effort…

Pardon the Delay

Busy weekend and rough start to the week. I should have a write-up of episode 3 soon.

Irregular at Magic High, ep. 2

Pardon the delay. I don’t have all the pictures done and inserted, but I’ll add them tonight.

Episode 2 picks up right where episode 1 left off. Mari Wanatabe, the head of the disciplinary committee, is facing off with Tatsuya Shiba — she knows he’s trying to snow him about what just happened at the gate, and doesn’t like it. Miyuki steps up and apologizes as well, and Saegusa uses the opportunity to suddenly play along with Tatsuya’s story while making it clear she knows the real score and won’t tolerate a repeat.

Does she know more than she lets on?

Overall, this was another slow-building episode (the big secrets don’t come out until the fourth novel, which will take some getting to…) There’s some clues to the attentive but they’re so subtle that if you haven’t read the novels, you probably won’t spot them. One is a line Tatsuya says in both the first and second episodes to Miyuki: “You always get angry for me because I can’t.” In fact, his demeanor is another oddity; he seems totally emotionless, except for his affection to his sister. I’ll come back to that later. He does have a sense of humor, though it’s absolutely deadpan.
