Aquarion Evol – 09

Decided to start to marathon this series since it has just ended. Somewhat cheesy, though fun to watch. Up to episode 9 so far:

– So basically, the Aquarion is the ultimate cockblock machine

– And it’s fuelled by the repressed sexual frustration of the teenage pilots

– Innuendo, oh damn, all the freaking innuendo everywhere.

Fate/Zero – Ep 01

I was drawn to ufotable only because of Kara no Kyoukai. I haven’t really watched much of the studio’s productions. Of the few I have seen, they were rather forgettable; not bad, but neither memorable. That aside, the first episode of Fate/ Zero certainly looks really promising and it resembles Kara no Kyoukai in more ways than one, which is a good thing I hope. At the very least, I already know that the music in this series will be (is) fantastic. Here’s to hoping an adaptation done right.

Now, of the series itself, well the frustrating thing about watching prequels is that sense of impending dread otherwise known as dramatic irony. You know who are going to win or lose – you can’t help but want to root for a certain character even if you know said individual is doomed to fail and as much as you hope another character to fail, you know it’s not in this one. On a concluding note: GILGAMESH!

Also, I look forward to GSC releasing that figurine of Saber on a motorbike.
