Magi: The Kingdom of Magic: Episode 1

Welp, here we are again. Once more at the bottom of the hill. Let’s see if we can’t at least get to the middle of the hill this time before falling to our deaths?

[HorribleSubs] Magi S2 - 01 [480p][18-27-50]
Magi: The Kingdom of Magic
Magi is a special manga for me, in that I started reading it when only the first four chapters had been translated. I’ve been reading for quite a while, and well, I’d like to think that I know quite a bit about the topic.

There are probably a bunch of screens that aren’t that interesting, but oh well.

Anyways, what happened?

Welp.

MORE SHIPPING. SO MUCH SHIPPING.

We get the introduction of a new character who is Hasbe’s older sister. She is quite awesome and provides a rather interesting foil to Hasbe, oh yeah, and the odd threesome implication between Hasbe, his sister and Lucy will no doubt create a realm of doujin.  It seems that Servant x Service is going for the ship tease route of anime and it’s inciting the fanbase with ships. Though instead of going the harem or the “which girl” road, Servant x Service is giving us set couples to ship.

Speaking of set couples, while the first half of the episode deals with Lucy and Hasbe’s relationship the second half deals with Ichimiya’s.

That is to say his relationship with his little sister, Toko, and his relationship with Chihiya. Who is Ichimiya’s girlfriend.

WHAT?

That came out of the left wing.

I mean the robot bunny, I can deal with.

The brocon sister, sure every anime has one of those.

The old ladies that always seem to steal Miyoshi’s time, hah. I love it.

But, the fact that Chihiya and Ichimiya are dating! Holy crap my mind is blown and shocked.

I really want to know, how these two got together. That would be a great episode. Heck, that just be a great story.

So, once again not much story. Another new character (Miyoshi is now the only one who hasn’t shown us any family) and overall just another funny episode of Servant x Service.

Servant x Service: Episode 4

That may or may not be in proper order.

Anyways, what happened?

Well, here’s a super quick summary.

LOTS OF SHIPPING WILL HAPPEN BECAUSE OF THIS EPISODE. SO MUCH SHIPPING.

It seems that the Lucy (rest omitted) x Hasbe ship is doing strong in that this episode gave the fans a crap ton of teasing and basically outright proof that the two are going to get together. There isn’t really a plot to these episodes, but I’ll try anyways.

Chihiya tries to teach Lucy about casual sexual harassment (while she herself does it quite often) and mostly overall just starts a rivalry with Hasbe (which will no doubt incite the yuri between Chihiya and Lucy, in the fandom’s mind). Hasbe then does what he does best, and in a rather shocking turn of events gets rejected by Lucy. They then act awkward, well Lucy acts awkward for a bit before making up and Hasbe starts to take Lucy out to dinner on a regular basis.

Then we have the introduction of the best character in the entire series. Yes. You read that right. The best character.

The section chief, whose name escapes me, is controlling a freaking robot bunny. a fifty year old male with a rather deep voice that interacts with people with a bunny that looks a lot like Honey-sempais. A freaking bunny.

THAT IS AMAZING.

The rest of the episode deals with the bunny, and it culminates with the newcomers (plus Ichimiya) going out drinking with the bunny.

Drinking, with a freaking bunny.

THAT IS AMAZING.

They all eat, and then Lucy gets drunk so Hasbe takes her home. Well to what looks to be a home in general.

That’s the episode!

Really, Servant x Service is entertaining and funny and because of that it’s awesome. This was a pretty normal episode that had me snickering so that makes it a good one in my books.

Journal Entry #23: ConBravo Day 0

So, ConBravo the premier convention for all things geek is starting tomorrow. Or, well it has already started for some people as planning and things are no doubt going on right now as I write this post.

Still, for the normal members of staff the convention doesn’t start until tomorrow and noon. For the normal people though, the convention doesn’t start until tomorrow evening.

I’ve been doing normal pre-con things like packing, eating, saving money and also trying to fight my pre-con cold. You know what’s dumb. I get sick before conventions and after conventions. It’s so dumb.

Last convention I was at, I had a nasty case of pink eye before it, that somehow translated to me having bright red eyes that made me look like I smoked weed about every single hour on the hour. Yeah, that made working the weekend a bit awkward.

Right now, I have a horrible cough that makes me sound like I’m dying. Sigh. I bet all my con friends think I’m always sick.

Anyways, I’ve been preparing. This weekend is going to both wreck me and be one of the most amazing things that I love. This is going to be awesome.

I just love conventions. As always, I’ll try to keep some sort of blog going on. I think I’m going to write a little paragraph about what I’m doing every hour, so let’s see if I can’t get some sort of interesting blog post from this weekend.

Also, expect RWBY Episode 2 to come up right after I’ve watched it and capped some screens from it. I’ve been putting it off, just because I really don’t want to listen to the voices. The more I’ve been thinking about it, the more I dislike the voices. Oh well. Hopefully it’s better the second time. I really don’t want to have to drop the series just because I could stand it.

So, what happened?

Well, Keima has planned his first step to his true harem route. First he must raise all the affection levels of the girls back to love. How is he going to do that? Well, by forcing an after school even with everyone of them! In them manga it was implied that he did this for a while, but it seems that the anime is going to continue with the concept of shortening the anime as much as possible.

So, first on the list for events was moon girl, one of the girls that the anime skipped over. Her capture was quite the ordeal, and her recapture should be no doubt just as mind boggling. Anyways, Keima gives us an amazing how-to on the after school event, with the three Fs. “Follow, Fool and Fuk..etc.” The first two are simple enough, but it’s the last one that is the most important and striking, by keeping an open ended parting, the capture target is no doubt willing to meet with Keima again, and therefore allow him to continue to raise the affection levels.

Anyways, after Keima and moon girl part, the next on the list was Yui, who well, decides to take the a car home (she being a very rich person) and Keima misses out on her after school event.

Luckily enough the best girl of series find Keima, who if you don’t know is Ayumi, unluckily enough though, she has a tagger on with her. The super normal and non-important girl Miyoko (I think, I don’t care enough to check her name). She does her very best to ruin Keima’s attempt to raise the best girls affection levels, though Keima does raiser her affection later, after her separates Miyoko from Ayumi.

There was some trouble when Haqua who was supposed to be distracting Chihiro crossed paths with Keima. Luckily Chihiro didn’t notice and Keima and Haqua switched spots  so that Keima could now focus on Chihiro. Now Chihiro has never been my favorite heroine, but at least in the anime, I’m liking her quite a bit more.

She has a rather nice singing voice and I’m rather looking forward to the inevitable singing scene. Anyways, after doing his thing and making Chihiro blush, Keima then heads back to school where Shiori is still working at the library.

After breaking into the locked building, Keima distracts Shiori and quickly starts to invade her personal belongings, like any good eroge protagonist would.

It seems that Shiroi had been writing a story that was basically just a recount of Keima’s capture only with the roles reversed. The animation style for these scenes were quite cute and nice, and it really suited the weird sci-fi/romcom story that Shiroi had written.

After making Shiroi blush as red as a street light, Keima leaves the library only to see Yui outside peeking in through the window. Yui then does her thing, and Keima then starts to blush himself. Yui gives Keima a female uniform because, apparently it would be weird if both members of a couple wore male outfits.

Psh. Yui obviously doesn’t know about the Fujioshi world.

Anyways, after retreating from Yui (and being saved by Haqua again), Keima rushes home in order to plan the next.

Unfortunately for him the next day, Nora has chosen this specific time to appear. Apparently the Runaway Spirit Squad had now taken in interest in the Goddesses. Hrm. Keima tells Haqua to distract her as he rushes off to school for the next step of his full capture.
