Short Synopsis: As it turns out: Idris also has a very annoying brother.
Episode Rating: 8/10 (Excellent)
Wha, this episode took me by surprise. This definitely was one of the hardest to understand episodes of this series yet, so I hope that I understood everything correctly. Zalish and Fan were completely absent in this episode, and it only focused on the tension between Idris on one side and Jouslain, Lydia and Baruami on the other side.

So because the rulers of Estrade failed at their coup, Idris takes over their duties and pretty much increases his own influence. Someone needs to take over his old duties and that someone becomes his younger brother: Radomorz. Like Zalish did with Alsas, Idris originally attempted to keep his brother as far away as possible because the guy is a total idiot, and indeed the minute he arrives he starts hitting on Lydia and picks a fight with Baruami. What follows is a very nice (and painful) kick from Lydia, Radomorz insulting Baruami’s father and Baruami hitting Radomorz in the face.

This creates a scandal because Radomorz’ rank is much higher. The original punishment for him was to send him to some far away post in the middle of nowhere, but because of Lydia’s testimony (ZOMG, she actually did something useful!) he simply is removed from his post and sent away to the main planet of Uraniborg.

But damn, Ajman scares me. The guy really is obsessed with Lydia for some strange reason: this is the first time where he spoke his mind so clearly, and he defended her letter with a surprising amount of enthusiasm, especially when he usually just sits in his chair and lets the dukes do the thinking. I know that with these noblepeople age doesn’t matter, but it remains wrong for a guy to start chasing a girl who’s more than forty years younger than him…

Still, I have to admit: that kick of Lydia definitely made up for all those episodes in which she didn’t do anything.

    Kind of a funny episode with Idris getting a headache over his brother.

    Ajman likes the lolis! Well he is more or less an emperor and they keep taking younger and younger concubines, but yes it is wrong lol.

    You’re so right lol.

    “It seems that the person insulted was…MAH BROTHER!”

    I was like: O_O “HOLY SHIT! IT’S TRUE! OMG! YOU’RE IN PROBLEMS IDRIS!”

    Well realist I won’t declare her untalented as evidently she is quite prolific and gets a lot of work and its good to see a woman working in the male dominated anime industry.

    She worked on red garden, Fujiko Mine no onna and book of bantorra I will give Okada that. Hanasaku could have been so much better though and fractale’s ending was a mess. I thought initially black rock shooter might go somewhere, the otherworld fight scenes were cool enough but really what was up with/going on with the rest of it.

    I agree on both Sakurasou and Tempest but both series really did show a ton of potential. Tempest was really good for the first cour or so and had some great moments even after that. Sakurasou was a terrible narrative but had great characters. Okada is a deeply flawed writer but I just disagree with people who don’t think she’s talented.

    Sakurasou, Tempest felt like a waste of potential to me. They had some good going for them but something went wrong and undermined them.

    @Realist: Nagi no asukara, I watched it before wixoss and was not keen on it, final nail in the coffin for Okada with me, it coloured how little I enjoyed wixoss afterwards also.

    @Emma Ok, well I’m sorry for misunderstanding your opinion on that. I guess there must be some other explanation for why we had different feelings on WIXOSS.

    @Ninja, Wixoss was a pile of crap on a crap sandwich with a side order of crap.

Mushishi – 07

Now this was such a beautiful episode. We often see Mushi portrayed as parasites. In fact, they are pretty much based on the insects and viruses of their world. There probably are enough real viruses and insects living in the Mushishi world, but they just aren’t the focus of the series. Anyway, what they did […]

This is where this arc gets weird. We’re still in adventure modus, however in these two episodes Jotaro not only meets some of the most bizarre Stand users, it’s also done in the most camp way possible. You can see a clear difference with the first two seasons of Jojo: there it was all about […]

Episodes 05 and 06 are dedicated to character-development.

I’m currently […]

I have not forgotten about this show. Not at all. I just finished marathoning these four episodes, and holy cheeseballs on a stick! this is the best anime in years!

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure – 03 – 05

Jojo really is not kind to its females. Every time a hint is even dropped to a girl kicking ass here, it comes with this weird plot-twist that undermines any fighting potential of them.

Ping Pong – 03 & 04

The opening of Ping Pong wasn’t done in time, so the first two episodes showed a sortof montage as a placeholder. Now we know why, with episode 03 and 04.

Yes, I know that more people here were involved in making this series beyond Masaaki Yuasa. It’s written by the creator of Tekkon Kinkreet, Taiyo Mashimoto. That guy is awesome.

Mushishi Season 2 – 02

Oh yes. This is it. This is what storytelling should be about: telling real stories about real people, all with their own problems that need to be overcome. And this show does that time and time again in just one episode. I still can’t believe how authentic this series is. The thing is, when I […]

Nerawareta Gakuen Review – 84/100

Let me talk a bit about Ryousuke Nakamura. For a long time, this guy was my hero. He started off as an assistant director to Monster, in my opinion a big reason why that series got such a ridiculously solid adaptation, and then in 2008 he came with the groundbreaking Mouryou no Hako. No TV-series […]

Kick Heart

Okay, so I didn’t want to exit 2013 without having seen Masaaki Yuasa’s Kick Heart. It’s only twelve minutes anyway, and I consider him to be one of the best anime directors out there. The story here is pretty silly and mostly serves as a backdrop, so I mostly want to talk about the nature […]

Everyone’s taste is different, and that’s a wonderful thing because that allows us to have so many different forms of media that all aim toward their own niche.

Silver Spoon Review – 86/100

When Noitamina started airing two series per season, it was amazing.

Unfortunately it’s a schedule that could not be kept up […]
