「立ちはだかる幻影」 (Tachihadakaru Gen’ei)
“Haunted by Phantoms”
There’s a Hyperbolic Time Chamber in my Gundam? And it’s made by Bleach’s Kurosaki Ichigo? I hope the universe doesn’t implode on itself from shounen and shounen colliding with mecha shounen.
「中多紗江 前編 ウタガイ」 (Nakata Sae Zenpen – Utagai)
“Nakata Sae, First Chapter – Uncertainty”
The writers had me going for a moment with the possibility of a “real” relationship problem in Sae’s arc, but they let that chance slip away by playing up Junichi’s uncertainty a wee bit more than it probably needed to be.
「ブラック★ロックシューター」 (Burakku★Rokku Shuutaa)
Last week I described this series as “unconventional”, but this week led me to believe that “disturbing” works just as well.
「贖罪 rebirth」 (Shokuzai)
In many ways, this latest episode of Guilty Crown was a step in the right direction. However, there were still moments that I found rather irksome, which prevented it from being a complete step in the right direction.
I promised a status update at the end of the week, so here it is.
Thank you everyone for the kind words. I thought it was going to be more difficult to step away from the site, but your understanding is making it a lot easier to do so.
03/10: I’ve gone through the 35 or so applications that I’ve received and have shortlisted them down to ~8 people, many of whom are female. There are a lot of candidates who show promise and fit RC’s perspective on anime, so I may even bring on board more than 4 writers. I apologize for taking a while with this review process and keeping everyone in suspense, but I want to make sure that I give everyone proper consideration.
「赤いモビルスーツ」 (Akai Mobiru Suutsu)
“Red Mobile Suit”
In case it wasn’t already apparent from the opening sequence, Zeheart is well on his way now to becoming the Char Aznable of Gundam AGE. His red Zeydra mostly resembles the other Vagan mobile suits, but comes in a red just like Char’s Rick Dias, Sazabi, and most the recent addition that’s graced television screens, “Full Frontal’s” Sinanju.
