Persona -trinity soul- 3: Finally!

Hoorah! We finally get to see some action in Persona! Let’s just forget that the action scene lasted lasted less then ten minutes. It’s the thought that counts, right? … Yes, that’s right, Persona needs a lot more mecha fights. Currently, it has only two eight-minute fights and one three second fight within three damn episodes!

It’s also three episodes in, and I have no idea what’s going on. Maybe I would have if I knew what a Persona was. Looking at other blogs, those who have played the game and know seem to be enjoying Persona more then the ones who don’t.

But I’m guessing that the mysterious pills on Ryo’s desk have something to do with it.

Poor Jun, he has little to none screentime. I thought the subplot about him and Yuki was going to be so insanely important, but it seems that it really isn’t. Sure, Eiko references both Yuki and Jun’s mother quite a lot, to Jun’s dismay, but it’s not exactly the focus of this episode.
We also see a bit more of the Red-Haired lolita, and it’s quite obvious that she is not Megumi. Megumi’s hair is pink, and now I can conform that Miss Red-Hair has, um, RED HAIR. Must be poor animation quality.

I am glad to say that the music is getting better. I really liked the music which played during the ten-minute fight, and then the opera-esque music right after. There’s definitely some mysterious music during the middle, and we do hear something resembling the cool BGM in episode 1. The animation doesn’t get much better, although at least now, Jun’s face looks pretty correct.

Shin is a bad boy for going onto Ryo’s private database. I’m just waiting for the next episode, when Ryo is bound to enter the room just as Shin is reading the private list.

Shigofumi 2: Lolicon is a Terrible Pursuit

(BE WARNED OF SPOILERS)

It seems Shigofumi is going to use mini-arcs. Two episodes per case. I’m really glad about that, as even two episodes can contain a whole lot more character development then just one (ahem, Jigoku Shoujo). I really want to know a bit more about Fumika and Kanaka. Why the heck are are they randomly delivering letters from dead people? Fumika doesn’t even seem to care about the contents of the letters themselves, just delivering them.

I must say, the arc’s storyline is awfully cliche. Asuna’s father is an evil scheming man who deserved to die, and Asuna is only crazy because of past experiences. Yes, Asuna is a good girl, nevermind that she killed poor Shouta for unknown reasons. But all this was presented in such a manner, that it made me almost cry and feel sorry for Asuna. Shigofumi excels at presentation.

I wish we knew more about Asuna’s father. I demand another episode on why Asuna’s father’s does what he does. I want to know why he would sell his daughters for lolicon just to create money. Teenager pornagraphy is pretty terrible, but child pornagraphy is even worse. In fact, I even want to know why he’s in a hospital.

Kanaka’s getting pretty annoying. She’s much too hyper.

Aiko is grooving on. Hopefully, we’ll see a bit more of her.

Persona -trinity soul- 2: High School Blues

I think, starting today, I’m going to take less screen shots and write more text. Is that a good idea, I wonder?

This episode of Persona introduces us to Shin’s high school and classmates, which the series can definitely do without. Megumi is one of the few tsuntsun I find extremely annoying, and Mr. Afro ends up scaring me. Morimoto is alright, through. You may know that she is voiced by Mai Nakahara. I love every character in the world who happens to be voiced by Mai.

I’m not really watching this anime for Shin and his mundane school life, but for Ryo and the “Apathy Syndrome”(?) case. That part of the series is so gratifying for me that it kind of redeems Shin’s boring school life. Unfortunately, this episode doesn’t have too much of that, except two small scenes. One about how everyone hates him, and another about how he hates everyone. Boring, eh?

Currently, my favorite character is the lolita girl on the bridge (pictured above). She looks a lot like an Aristocrat, which is a nice difference from the goth-lolis that are in every other anime containing a lolita. She seems to be the girl pictured in the first scene of the first episode. Her hair color is also coincidently very similar to Megumi’s. I really hope that that is just the character designer being lazy. If Megumi and the lolita are the same person, I’ll… (*Takes out Death Note*)

Megumi randomly falling asleep at the end of the episode is the most terrible and irrational plot device I’ve ever come across, during my millions of years as an otaku. The ending wasn’t all that suspenseful, either. It’s very obvious what’s going to happen.

The music annoys me greatly. Where were the cool themes from the last episode? The animation isn’t as good as the opening episode, as well. Jun’s strange facial alignments scare me. But I am enjoying the fact that they’re using watercolor-style CG backgrounds less and less.


True Tears 2: No place for Yuri in a Harem

This should be a yuri between Hiromi and Noe, instead of a harem, because it works so perfectly as one. No one cares about Shin-chan, but we all love Noe and Hiromi. So, why don’t we just strip Shin’chiro from his role of a protagonist, and make Hiromi and Noe the stars? The ratings will skyrocket, LITERALLY!

Then, they could work on getting Shin’chiro and Nobuse into a yaoi, and draw in the fangirls. Come on, True Tears could be the next big hit! It could join the FYGs and the animebloggers together, into an everlasting friendship and alliance. No fangirl will ever be insulted at the bloggers again!

But if it was just mindless yaoi and yuri, it’d be porn. No one likes porn.

I’m also endlessly amused that some random person called Shin-chan a pimp. When’s the last time a male harem lead was known as a pimp (School Days is not a harem, so that doesn’t count)?
