A Certain Scientific Railgun 04 – the curse of the undressing Otaku

Just about everything is turning out quite different from the manga.

It’s a pleasant surprise though, because it’s a different type of fun. We’re not abruptly introduced to Mikoto’s arch enemy/love interest Toma,  instead, a little bit of intrigue is thrown in and we start to wonder a little about the so-called Academy City Urban Legends. But of course, the main reason for talking about that in this episode is to introduce two important people – love interest (no it’s not a spoiler), and that strange researcher Kiyama Harumi, played by Major Kusanagi I mean Tanaka Atsuko.

Like I said, so far I like the changes in character dynamics and how there are increased interactions and that we’re not suddenly introduced to an important character. The characters play off each other, which adds a wonderful energy flow through the show. It’s funnier and quirkier and even more charming than the manga.

This introduction is like an ambush; for those of you who doesn’t know the story or hasn’t read the manga or the novel, I believe it will be a wonderful surprise later.

You know, I like Kiyama Harumi already, I mean what a sensible woman (lol), if it’s too damned hot, just take off your blouse! You’re wearing a bra anyway! And if your skirt is soiled, just take it off! You’re wearing pantyhose and pantsu anyway! Fuck, why does it make perfect sense to me? XD

Tanaka Atsuko is a wonderful seiyuu; she can play sexy, serious, tough, sarcastic, silly, out-of-it…Just about anything. She will be fun to watch. Kuroko is damn funny and it’s priceless comedy gold when she shakes Uiharu like a madwoman.

All in all, good stuff abound.

Thinking about Fall 09.

I actually did watch some more first episodes but just didn’t want to dive specifically into any of them – for now. It is way too early to tell if this season isn’t as good as the summer season but that’s my feeling regardless. I was so impressed by everything I’ve watched, major hits or small surprises, during the summer season that I’m currently biased against the fall season.

Another reason for my bias is because I liked all the styles of the shows that I watched in the summer, save maybe one or two. But so far, the fall season shows have styles that probably cater to other folks, and that is perfectly fine.

Wait, I forgot Queen’s Blade! As opposed to Scientific Railgun, which is already a good show but lacking in solid fan service (please do no wear shorts underneath a short skirt), Queen’s Blade has a story and some plots as well as character motivations in a quasi-realistic female-dominated-world setting and I explained why some of the things aren’t merely impossible fan services but may happen in real life. Then again, Queen’s Blade is a phenomenon and to me and Mike #2 and countless other fans whose possible faps praises are heard around the world, it is exceptional for many, many, many large to gargratuan assets that it has to offer. It’s honest and not anywhere-near-bashful assets is often quite pleasing (licensed blu ray, please)! Onto the rest of fall shows:

Queen’s Blade S2 01 – My Staff and Rod shall be your comfort

Queen’s Blade S2 starts out quite differently from season 1 by filling the episode up with intrigue and intentions. As most of us know, it’s a service show borderline hentai that caters to men and some lesbians mostly. It is not for most people. In fact, one of my friends who recently started watching a lot of mainstream stuff downloaded the fan sub of episode one, season one, and as soon as he saw Melona’s milk attack, he turned it off.
