I think I have discerned a particular theme that I certainly enjoy watching and I’m hoping that there would be more shows like this in the future. I’ve come to realize this only after watching the recent movie of FMA and it made me remember my rewatch of Seirei no Moribito last year. Well that was random wasn’t it?

I know, the title is so weaboo-ish. (Also, the image is spoiler-ish at its best, re: Yukio holding a gun) The mere motive of the author for making this post is because he saw the trailer (and quickly got intrigued so he read the manga) from one of gg-subs if he’s not mistaken.

It’s been a while since I have stumbled upon a battle shounen which piqued my interest. Seriously though, Shana captivated me because of her resplendent red flames. How can I let myself miss out blue flames which are definitely cooler? Visuals aside, I definitely like the Shinto and rich Japanese folklore vibes that Ao no Exorcist radiates.

I think all viewers are informed of the latest gag among the names of the characters of the Gundam 00 S2. The one at left is the old version and I’m NOT the one who certainly drew that caricature. Anyway, I’m also watching Gundam 00 S2 just to inform everyone and I just can’t help but comment to this… First, Regene Regetta. Hmm, okay? So what’s so odd about it? Second, Healing Care. Uhm, I guess it’s somewhat clear now? Third, Revive Revival… Okay, There’s a Pharmacy (Marie Parfacy), Hospital (Healing Care) and a Graveyard this time? Looks like the drawing at the left could be fill out with infrastructures this time! Episode 10 introduced Anew Returner for everyone… Hmmm, still a pun but pretty decent for a Celestial Being member. Bring Stability… Perfect! Now the establishment would be constructed. Anyway, I’m so annoyed with the names yet I just can’t help but laugh out loud when I’m hearing their sickening names… XD

Allelujah’s name is the very very obvious of all puns and yet they are still not sick of it. They even explained why it was Allelujah and the Haptism surname being an anagram for the day he was baptized since he doesn’t have a name til he met Marie…[oops, spoiler…]
