Posted by psgels on 27 March 2009 with categories: Genji Monogatari Sennenki



Short Synopsis: Genji and Murasaki finally hook up together.
Episode Rating: 8/10 (Excellent)
And so another series has finished. While a straightforward ending (it basically involves Genji being down because of the sin he committed, him being attacked by a bunch of bandits and finally his realization that Murasaki is ‘more’ than a younger sister to him), it was a very effective one, and just like any other episode of this series an emotional ride.

It’s a shame that this one never got subbed, but then again that was to be expected considering how little attention Osamu Dezaki’s previous work (Ultraviolet) received. It’s a real shame, because this guy really knows how to make optimal use of visuals and sound to tell a story. And I really have to say that each episode of this series was effective, and set out exactly what it wanted to do.

In any case, I’m looking forward to the next instalment of Noitamina. I have absolutely no idea what it’s going to be, since I’ve been avoiding all spring previews in order to not get too hyped about it, but it’s probably going to be something completely different again. In any case, thanks for all the tips and corrections from those who read the original novel.

    Huh. Well, they just cut off the story there, huh? There goes half the book. (we didn’t even get to see Genji’s exile and his hook-up with the Akashi Lady, who bears him his only daughter)

    Oh, and as for your previous post, yes Genji’s son with Fujitsubo will become Emperor. It’s just Genji’s older brother was Crown Prince first. So the elder brother became Emperor, and Genji’s son became Crown Prince.

    I think it is being subbed, just slowly.

  3. Anithin says:

    I think It is currently being subbed by Liive-eVIL. The first episode has been out, and the bit about Genji being second in line for the throne (which he isn’t) is corrected from another version.

    I love the scene with Genji and Murasaki sleeping together. It’s a clear contrast to the rest of the erotic scenes of him and other ladies. Like Murasaki and Genji’s love is not that sensual but is deep and purer. However, I found that bandit scene out of place and I don’t know why it is included. I hope the subbed version will make the significance of this scene clear.

  4. DoggieAngel says:

    Can someone explain to me if Genji loves Fujitsubo. I’ve watched up till episode 5 and part of 11 and I was wondering what Genji thinks. I always thought he had a thing for Fujitsubo and that was the focus of the anime, but did he not love her and loved Murasaki later in the end? Also, what happens after he gets exiled?

    @Bam And actually, it does work especially well for controlling muzzle rise in full auto. That’s the main rationale behind the technique. However, I see a lot of people using this technique for semi-auto rifles.

    @Bam The C-Clamp actually works surprisingly well but it restricts your field of vision and is more tiring. You’re better of using a traditional grip.

    @K-Off Well I live in KY so shooters tend to be pretty experienced. You will get warned for muzzle-sweeping and thrown off the range if you keep doing it. Trigger discipline is harder to enforce but I personally will never let it slide if I see it. Finger is way the hell away from the trigger if you aren’t pulling it. Even just resting it on the trigger guard is not enough. The finger should be on the frame/slide/cylinder.

    I actually never seen that clamp. Seems too dorky. Also if you’re doing Rambo you should at least freakin go full-auto, but I’m pretty sure the range or state didn’t allow it.

    @Bam One point shooting technique is to have your arm parallel to your body with the elbow bent so that your forearm sticks out perpendicular to your torso. Police like this technique for CQB. I prefer the classic Isosceles Stance or Weaver Stances for point shooting. They’re tried and proven.

    @ninja I bet “the N00b” is one that you see a lot. Facing the barrel of the gun towards somebody and keeping their finger on the trigger.

    @K-Off XD. Never seen any of those in person besides the C Clamp. The C Clamp is fucking everywhere. All of those are silly except for the olympic style shot, which actually makes a lot of sense for people who can do it well. I am not sold on C-Clamp or Central Axis Relock.

Akatsuki no Yona – 03

Hak and Yona flee Soo-Won’s men, but Yona’s mental and physical condition continue to deteriorate. Yona and Hak are both haunted by memories from the past. This was easily the best episode in the series so far. Whereas the first two episodes primarily took place in the present or the future, this episode is mostly spent in […]

Grisaia no Kajitsu – 03

This isn’t looking good. Let me explain, Grisaia has a somewhat nakige visual novel approach. Meaning that it has a comedic relatively plotless first half, followed by a tragic heroine backstory related story arc. Notable examples of this is any Key visual novel anime adaption you can think of. So for the first half we […]

Shingeki no Bahamut: Genesis- 03

Okay, so this episode didn’t focus on Leone and Amira’s adventure. Instead, it focuses on building Kaisar’s character and it does so a bit awkwardly. This episode takes Kaisar and puts him into an overly bombastic situation in order to tell us about Kaisar’s past family problems, but it was so out of tone from […]

Gugure! Kokkuri-San- 03

This show has a great cast, but some chinks in the armor are starting to appear in the comedy. So far, this anime seems to lack a consistent tone, which shows through just how hit-and-miss the comedy is. It attempts to mix elements of light and dark comedy along with slice-of-life and tries to excel in all three […]

Psycho Pass 2 – 02

Episode two continues right where episode one left off and progresses about how you might have guessed. Akane chases the mysterious villain pulling the strings, getting only cryptic responses from Kitazawa. Shimotsuki confronts Akane with her misgivings about Akane’s handling of the arrest. And we finally get some subtle hints towards Kougami’s existence and how his disappearance might […]

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Bladeworks – 02

The stage is set, the actors are in place and the curtain is rising. So I can say this episode’s title was certainly apt. Unfortunately this week we have no bombastic fight scene to ogle and instead we get a heavy dose of info dumping. This is not the most exciting of episodes but the […]

Grisaia no Kajitsu – 02

The grisaia visual novel was by no means perfect. In fact if I was to summarize it as concisely as possible I would deem it a mixed bag. Some great moments but quite a number of bad storytelling decisions. Still there was hope for this anime adaption. After all the Steins Gate adaption managed to […]

Parasyte-the Maxim- 02

Before I continue reviewing this anime, let me put up a disclaimer: I will be discussing the anime of Parasyte, not the manga. If you want to talk about spoilers, I recommend you go to a site that will talk about those things. Don’t be an ass and discuss spoilers down in the comments, because […]

Some Quick First Impressions: Grisaia no Kajitsu, Trinity Seven and Inou Battle wa Nichijou-kei no Naka de

Grisaia no Kajitsu Short Synopsis: Our protagonist joins a school that has five troubled girls in attendance. AidanAK47’s impression: Grisaia has all the elements to cause many to write it off as a typical harem anime. Protagonist who only wants a ordinary life? Check. Joins school with several female beauties? Check. Panty shots? Sigh…check. The […]

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.

I’m not going to dedicate a post for my impression for the final three episodes of this series. It was just too boring to write much about.

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 […]
