Let’s Look: Fairy Tail 2nd Series Episode 26:Even Moles Love Lucy and Zeref vs. Mavis

Let’s Look: Fairy Tail 2nd Series Episode 26:Even Moles Love Lucy and Zeref vs. Mavis

I knew Lucy’s sexiness was universal but I didn’t know it crossed species? Also Zeref just threw down the gauntlet and Mavis just said bring it! The battle between Fairies and Demons is about to begin…in one month

Once again heroically double posting. Do I really need to say this? I’ve already done a few posts on AnimeWithSky…Yeah I need to do this until I can finally get an update post out. And with my backlog it will take a few days…

So anyway Episode 26 of Fairy Tail 2nd Series is called ‘Present’.

So now those epically cool mages of Fairy Tail have returned back to Magnolia and greeted by the entirety of the city. Everyone’s living it up and celebrating save one person.


He still remembers what happened when he saw Old Ultear. I still can’t get over it myself. See Ultear was only max in her mid to late twenties. She was still in the prime of her life. Now she has to spend her last days watching all her friends live on. Sure she doesn’t have any regrets but imagine if this was forced on her. The despair would be overwhelming.

On that note Juvia notices that Gray is feeling down and tells him that it’s rude for him to have such a sad look on his face while everyone else is so happy. So Gray puts a smile for her.

Now stuff like this is what makes me think that Gray x Juvia or commonly referred to as Gruvia will be a thing. Out of all the people in the entire crowd, Juvia was the only one to notice that Gray was sad. Now if that wasn’t love or future wife material I don’t know what is.

But getting anyway from the sad parts and to the comedy, so Natsu digs around in his backpack and pulls out this.


He stole the King of Fiore’s crown! He stole the crown….

Then he just puts it back in his pack. Apparently he grabbed the wrong thing. Dude you just stole the freaking crown and now you’re just casually putting it back like a trinket.


Wow the trophy is nice! Still stole a freaking crown! Return it man!

Note: We never see Natsu return it, someone come and get back it, him mail it, or anything. It’s safe to assume that he kept it….What the hell?!

So after that everyone just crying because they finally won but the greatest comedy comes from Makarov. Turns out that townspeople fixed up the guild and payed off their debt! Yay


It’s okay man. Let it out. I will too. Hahahahhaa oh the pain and the comedy. I love this anime!

But after this we see this little thing.


Obra’s Imp? What it doing here?

So at this point I’m at a crossroads. I can continue the review in a linear fashion, reporting things as they happened or break it up into the filler and the canon stuff. I’ll do the second.

So the little imp runs out of the town and into the forest where he goes up to a certain person…


It’s freaking Zeref, the Black Mage! Run! Run! Those of you with weak constitutions may want to leave the review.

Just joking with that last part.

So Mavis appears, you see her walking to this little glade in the middle of the filler, and she starts to talk with Zeref.

Now note while this sounds like a conversation, it isn’t. Zeref can’t see or hear Mavis at all because he lacks a Fairy Tail guild mark. However he can sense her. And this is what surprises you if you really think about it. Mavis asks questions and Zeref’s responses sound like logical answers to her questions. But once again Zeref can’t hear her so that means that he know hers that well where he can anticipate her answers perfectly.

Damn that’s good.

So after experiencing the world for seven years, what do you want to do now, Zeref?

Wow, whenever Zeref appears things get real! I love this dude! Humans keep making the same mistakes over and over again. To someone 400 years old like Zeref, it must be like a parent that watches their kid do the same dumb stuff again and again. Now this parent wants to cut us off…permenantly!

Scary, right.

What’s Mavis’s response?


Oh Zeref throws down the gauntlet and Mavis accepts the challenge! I can’t wait for the epicness!

Wow just the epicness. Now back to the filler.

It’s pretty simple. Natsu, Lucy, and Happy go on a job to stop a mole that’s terrorizing a town. They can’t beat it because it keeps ducking underground. Erza, Gray, and Wendy show up. They help out and the day is saved. All in all, very simple and overwhelmingly boring.

I’m not going to go in depth with it because in a lot of Fairy Tail filler this isn’t good stuff. So I’ll just do a pic spam of moments.

There is some funny stuff in there. Turns out that the mole is looking for a mate so he goes after Lucy. Erza asks since she’s a young attractive woman(yes she is! Thanks Mashima for making her so hot and that’s Sayaka Oohara for giving her a sexy voice) why isn’t it going after her.


Hahaha. Still insanely hot.

Then Wendy asks the same question….


Hahahah oh god the pain and laughs! It hurts!


It’s okay Wendy. Remember your Edolas self. She had huge boobs. Maybe you’ll grow up to be like her. Who know? Every manga and anime needs the token loli for the perverts to drool over and for the normal people to ‘aww’ at their cuteness.

Okay now Picture Spam go!

And that’s it for the Episode.

Now I believe it’s been announced that this entire month will be filler to give the anime some more distance between the manga. I like a lot of Fairy Tail’s filler mostly because it isn’t technically filler.

Most of what the Fairy Tail anime adapts into filler is Hiro Mashima’s omake chapters. And that guy pumps them out. So there’s rarely something that goes up in the filler part that’s not canon in someway. The next episode is in fact canon that happened right after the Grand Magic Games with Sabertooth and how they’re rebuilting themselves. But of course they’re got to be some shipping there too. There’s some Gray x Juvia shipping and some of my favorite Sting x Yukino and Rogue x Yukino shipping. Poor Yukino. Stuck in an entire guild of guys.

Anyway that’s enough of me rambling. So the next episode is Welcome Home, Frosh. I personally can’t wait for it. It’s chance to see the new Sabertooth.

So until next week,
Later Days

Fairy Tail Zero Manga Review: Chapter 3: Night of Embarking

Wow finally got around it! Hey everyone it’s Deven here and I’m coming at you with the first of many Fairy Tail Zero reviews. I’ll be doing these monthly since Fairy Tail Zero is monthly. 

Sorry for this being up so late and the Fuuka Reviews not here yet. I’ve had some suckish internet and my iPod Touch broke so getting the raw materials for any post is a challenge. Despite I’ll keep trying!

So now that’s out of the way let’s start!

Fairy Tail Zero Chapter 3: Night of Embarking

So we continue from where we left off last chapter with Mavis reaffirming that she’ll win within one round. Yury gets flustered, thinking that in all the years that he’s been playing this game no one’s ever won in a single round.

007Well dude she’s Mavis Freaking Vermilion even her name sounds awesome) and the Fairy Tactician so you should know that you’re going to lose. But apparently Yury hasn’t seen that yet so he thinks that asking if that bird is her pet will stop her.

 However before he even gets finish his statement, Mavis says it’s wrong. See Yury says that “That bird is you” and then Mavis cuts him off. Then Mavis says there wasn’t any room about letting their opponent finish their statement so technically Mavis wins!


So then Mavis explains exactly how she won…you don’t need to brag sweetie we already know how badass you are. So Yury gets mad and says that it’s a do over and now they have to listen to the end of each other’s statements. So now it’s Mavis’s turn. She reminds Yury of his promise to leave the island and let her meet the fairies. After a quick pondering by Yury and a futile attempt to tell Mavis it’s impossible for the person asking the question to win, Mavis asks her question.


Now this shocked the hell out of me. Turns out that Mavis hasn’t been blinking this entire game and Yury can’t even answer the question without it being a lie because he doesn’t know how many times he’s blinked. Mavis wins!

However it turns out that it doesn’t even matter. The Tenrou Jade has already been stolen. Mavis guesses that it might have been stolen during the raid by Blue Skull. Mavis doesn’t ask, doesn’t beg, she demands to be taken with them to recover the Jade. Why because she’s Mavis Freaking Vermillion!

So that night Mavis packs and introduces Zeira to Yury who starts acting really weird. The next day they set sail.


Now the end of this chapter got me thinking about the other two previous ones, especially Chapter One. Is Zeira even alive? In the first chapter before the 7 year timeskip, Mavis says that she returns to her village alone. Yet in the next chapter we see her back. Then in this chapter, we see that Yury is confused as I don’t know what when Mavis introduces Zeira. It leads me to guess that Mavis just made Zeira an imaginary friend after all those years. After all she was on that island for 7 years without any company and humans are social creatures. We may be able to be alone for short times but at the end we still crave being with others.

But hey it’s just a theory.

So that’s all for this review. Also this is going to be double posted on AnimeWithSky as well. I’m getting really busy over there but I’m never going to leave you guys over here!

You can ask me as many questions as you want on and you can follow me on Twitter to know when my new reviews are coming out. You’ll also be update on what’s happening.

Date A Live Review: Volume 11: Devil Tobiitchi

Hey everyone. Once again it’s Deven Luca coming at you with some Date A Live info. Except this time it’s not a Speculation, Date A Live Volume 11 is out! So I’ve got to be here to give you the review.

Also this post will be double posted on AnimeWithSky so tell your friends to check it out there too.

Okay let’s go!

So continued from the last volumet, Shido has gone back five years into the past thanks to Kurumi’s Twelfth Bullet, Yud Bet.

So once he arrives he bumps into Tamae from five years ago. After she leaves, Kurumi speaks to him via the Ninth Bullet, Teth.

Teth allows Kurumi to communicate telepathically and share senses with people from different times

After a quick bit of banter, Kurumi tells Shido that he must find out what caused Origami to go Inverse

He rushes over to his old neighborhood where Shido thinks of stopping Kotori becoming a Spirit but Kurumi reminds him of the effects that could have on the present ie. Kotori nor Shido would be recruited into Ratatoskr. After that the sky quickly turns red with flames. Shido runs to the park where he sees his past self, Kotori, and Phantom.

He calls out to Phantom but she is engulfed in Spirit Origami’s light attack. Origami fights against Phantom and as they fight Shido follows behind. However Origami accidentally shoots and kills her own parents with her powers. Shido sees young Origami curse and damn Spirit Origami.

Shido goes to help young Origami and tells her not to despair. She will give Shido her tears, her smiles and happiness. Young Origami tells him that this is the last time she will cry and the last time she will smile, and that she will keep her anger and kill that Angel no matter how long it takes and what methods she will use. She tells Shido to keep all her other feelings with him until she kills the Spirit and leaves.

And that’s the day that the current Origami was born.


As Shido and Kurumi ponder about how their actions accidentally created the current timeline events, Kurumi gets a visitor. It turns out to be Future Shido who just returned from using the Twelfth Bullet himself. He tells them not to give up and find a way to change the past to save Origami.

Kurumi gets an idea and tells Shido that they’re going to time jump again. However she doesn’t want to bring him back and then use Yud Bet again because it would be impractical and burn too much Spirit mana. That’d mean that there’d be none for her! Selfish…

So Kurumi tells Shido to go and meet with someone and they’ll be able to help.

Turns out it’s Past Kurumi! I think she’s about eleven years old here since Funimation says she’s about sixteen in the present time.

Aww...Young Kurumi is so cute
Aww…Young Kurumi is so cute

So after they meet Shido asks why Young Kurumi is wearing an eyepatch. That triggers this funny exchange:

“Please pay it no mind.”
”Were you hurt by any chance?”
“Please pay it no mind.”

Awww…Young Kurumi’s a bit insecure about her eye…still cute though.

Anyway Young Kurumi pulls her gun on Shido but Present Kurumi tells him to touch her so she can explain to her past self. After Kurumi explains, Young Kurumi uses Yud Bet and sends him back in time further.

Shido is thrown back to before Kotori was turned into a Spirit. As Phantom turns Kotori into a Spirit, Shido yells at her and she’s shocked that he can see her. At this Phantom runs away but Shido gives chase.

After Shido catches up with Phantom she apologizes for leaving but she didn’t want to talk in front of Kotori. Phantom then casts off the noise and uses…Rinne Freaking Sonogami’s form to talk with him!


As in Rinne from the Date a Live Game:Rinne Utopia! That means that Rinne Utopia is a canon game.

Quick Tangent: So if Phantom takes on Rinne’s form , that means that everything that happened in the game is canon and is an adventure that happened between Season 1 and Season 2.

I am definitely going to do a review on Rinne Utopia now. If you have a translation of the game or have beaten it, please drop me a line on Twitter.

Back to the review…

Shido feels like he’s seen the form that Phantom has taken up before(which fits with the game because everyone forgot that Rinne existed after she was sealed at the end of the Rinne route). However he asks Phantom she knew him and she says she knows him quite well. He asks about the power he has and why does he have it. Phantom says that she isn’t going to tell him because Kurumi is listening in on their conversation.

Shido asks her to go to the bordering dimension where Spirits come from because his logic is if there’s no Phantom here when Origami arrives then her parents won’t die and the future will be changed.

However Phantom says she still has business to take care and can’t leave. She puts her hand on Shido’s face and Shido remembers the touch but can’t place who she is.

I swear this adds fuel to the fire that Reine is Phantom and I also think that Reine might be Shido’s real blood mother. Mostly because other than Tamae, she’s the only adult that Shido interacts with regularly and of course he would remember that touch. We all instinctively know the touch of our mothers because it was ingrained in us at birth.

Anyway Phantom paralyzes Shido has Origami arrives to fight her and then the paralyzing breaks. Shido chases after them determined to change the future. As Origami’s burst of light comes down Shido charges and tackles Origami’s parents. However the chapter ends as Shido loses consciousness.

Okay I’m not going to rewrite the novel. I’ve been writing for three hours! I’m going to summarize!

Shido wakes back in his bed and finds everything back to normal save one thing. Origami doesn’t go to Raizen anymore. And there’s a new pure black Spirit that appears when Spirits show up. A new timeline where Origami’s parents didn’t get killed during the Tengu Fire has been made.

This is Devil Origami or Inverse Origami, which ever term you prefer.

See when Shido tackled Origami’s parents it saved them and gave Origami a relatively normal life…even though her parents died in a traffic accident four years later…you can’t win them all Shido.

Anyway because of a whole a lot of time manipulation…which a lot of folks on the website said sucks because they didn’t get it…there are technically two Origamis.

Let me explain. The common theory about time is Einstein’s Theory of Relativity which states that past events can’t be changed because they have already happened. However Shido changed history but the Origami of the past time line still exists because of Einstein’s theory. However now she exist as a split personality within the Origami of this timeline who is a far kind and warmer person than the original.

So whenever Origami senses Spirit mana she’ll pass out and the Original Origami will awaken in her Inverse form and attack them.

Got it? If not you can leave questions below and I’ll answer them. 🙂

Anyway after Shido realizes that Origami has changed, he immediately tells Kotori that Origami is the Spirit Devil. Kotori and Shido set up a date right away.

They go out on a date where both the Current Origami and Shido realize that the new Origami still has traits and memories of the old one. At the end of the date, Shido tries to kiss Origami but the banastar they’re leaning on at the park breaks. Shido catches her but he cuts his arm. However Origami fixates on the healing injury and goes into Inverse mode.

The Spirits at the Spirit Apartments notice the explosion of Spirit mana and head out to help. They all work together to try and seal Origami.

There’s a little joke here with Natsumi and Miku. Natsumi uses her ability to copy Army Breaker Diva, one of Miku’s abilities, and plays March to give Shido more power. Miku tells Natsumi to pay her copyright royalities later. Hahaha oh Miku that’s why you’re at the top of my favorite Date A Live girls list.

Anyway,the New Origami finds herself in her inner world with the old Origami and she’s getting blasted with all the memories and all the despair that the old Origami felt. The memories are nearly too much and she needs help. By reaching out to Shido and him reaching out to save her, Origami’s mind is calmed.


After that they kiss and Origami is sealed. And for the first time, Origami smiles a real and true smile.


After that Origami returns to Raizen as a student and all the Spirits’ memories of the past world have returned. Origami is a lot warmer and friendlier with the Spirits now and it’s explained that now the new Origami has gained all the powers of the old one as well as her memories.

As the novel ends, Origami says to Tohka that even though she’s changed her look on Spirits as long as she goes after Shido the Princess and the Angel will always be enemies.

They all laugh as Origami and Shido share a smile between them as they look forward to spending more time together.

Now that’s over time for the review.

I basically loved it. Mostly because I actually understand time travel. However there are some people that said that Koshi Tachibana stretched things to pull things back to the status quo. I disagree. This provided a time for Origami to grow as a character in a time where she was at her lowest point. I personally enjoyed it.

Also I have something to say about Kurumi. If you’re going to eat Shido do it soon girl! He’s sealed 8 Spirits if you count the Yamai sisters as separate or 7 if you count them as one. And he can use all of their powers. I’m not saying that Kurumi would lose but I’m saying it ain’t going to be so easy now.

So that’s all for this review. With this stuff with Rinne becoming a canon character, I need to get out a review with Rinne Utopia. I’ll also be doing a Speculation about what I think the Date A Live Movie is going to be about. Also I just found out what the OVA coming out in December’s going to be. I’ll have a review on that coming soon. It’s an adapdation of one of the short stories that Tachibana wrote about Kurumi. It’s something I can’t wait for.

So until the next Review and the next Speculation,
Later Days

You can ask me as many questions as you want on and you can follow me on Twitter to know when my new reviews are coming out. You’ll also be update on what’s happening.

Let’s Look: Fairy Tail 2nd Series Episode 25: A Witch’s Sin is Finally Forgiven

Oh Ultear. Oh Gray. They suffer so much in this anime.

So this is my first double post on AnimeThief and AnimeWithSky. I’m going to love this so much!

Side Note: Since I’m on two blogs now, I’m going to mix in more pictures with my normal Fairy Tail reviews. It makes it more interesting and fits in more here

Episode 25 of Fairy Tail 2nd Series is called ‘Drop of Time’.

This episode is all about things returning to normal after the attack of the dragons. Except one thing.


Who is this?

So as we go through the episode first we see that the pace is really slow but it’s not bad slow. It’s good slow. It’s relaxing.

The members of Fairy Tail start heading back to Magnolia while Jellal and Merudy start leaving Crocus.

Now on the Jellal and Merudy side, they search the wrekage of Crocus for Ultear until Doranbolt comes along to fill them in on the situation.

So turns out that Doranbolt modified the memories of all the members of the Magic Council including Lahar so they wouldn’t go after the Royal Family. After all the Royal Family used magic from the Book of Zeref so that would make a major problem in the entire country of Fiore. So it’s best that it stays in the shadows

So after that and this is my favorite part. Cobra returns to prison without a fight but not before saying a few choice things. One, he heard the voice of Cubellios(Kinana). Aw now if you watched the Key of the Starry Night filler arc(which is actually canon) then you know there’s a fair bit of Cobra x Kinana shipping…

Anyway the big thing is that…well let Cobra tell you.


Now I didn’t know this when I downloaded but it’s a suckish translation. Gates of the Underworld should be translated as Gates of Tartarus As in Tartarus, the third part of the Balam Alliance, the only one that hasn’t been taken out yet.

They’re about to make their move!

Now since I’m on AnimeWithSky with this post I can’t really go off on a long tangent but I’ll do a quick one.

So if Cobra heard this while he was fighting that means that a member or members of Tartarus was there during the Grand Magic Games. The only reason that I can think of is that they wanted something…or someone. The only question is did they get it?

For those answers we’ll have to wait until the Tartarus arc begins.

So back to Fairy Tail, they’re in a carriage heading back to Magnolia, relaxing. Erza’s drawing a custom armor(very badly), Natsu’s about to barf, and Lucy and Happy are laughing. However Gray’s just looking out the window. He can’t get that vision of dying out of his head.

He tells Wendy what happened with Ul and the feeling he felt after the fight with the dragons.


So after that we go back to Jellal and Merudy leaving Crocus and passing an old woman on the road who gives them a letter from Ultear.


Now if you’re not well versed in Seiyuu, the old lady is Ultear. Turns out Last Ages aged her down to her last few days alive.

You can even tell at the beginning of the episode when she talks. Miyuki Sawashiro doesn’t really lower her voice at all. She just elongates her words to make her sound a bit older.

As Merudy finishes reading the letter, she cries and Old Ultear disappears as Jellal looks back. Old Ultear walks for a bit until she passes the carriage with Natsu, Gray, Erza, Wendy, and Lucy in it. As Gray looks out of the window he sees Ultear and recognizes her.

As he asks for the carriage to stop, Ultear nods no. She’s had her time. Her part in this battle and in this life is over.

The episode ends with Ultear looking up at the sky, being bathed in the sunlight, saying finally she’s forgiven herself for the things she’s done.

Now this is just the feels episode of Fairy Tail and I’m giving it a 9/10 just for that.

Now the episode is epically awesome but bad because according to Hiro Mashima’s twitter, the entire month of October for the Fairy Tail anime will be filler so to give the manga a chance to get some more distance.

Aww man. I really want to see the Sun Village arc and the Tartorus arcs get animated.

I guess I have to wait.

And you will need to do until next week with Fairy Tail Episode 26, Present.

Until next week,
Later Days

You can ask me as many questions as you want on and you can follow me on Twitter to know when my new reviews are coming out. You’ll also be update on what’s happening.

Let’s Look:Rail Wars Episode 12 Finale: Nana’s Sweating, Naoto Can’t Sit Down, and Where The Light Novel?

So here we are at the end. How will things turn out for Rail Wars’ final adventure?

So we open up with Naoto sleeping on the train they’re on and the cutesy Nana decides to wake him up. Once he wakes up we get this.


Yeah that’s you should start the day. No Raisin Bran. No Wheaties. No Frosted Flakes. Just a face full of huge boobs. It’s the most important thing of the day!

After that Nana and Naoto transfer off the train to another one that will take them to Tokyo.

Nana and Naoto then explain to us why they’re together and why the others are gone. Turns out as the leader of this little group Nana had some serious paperwork and straightening out she had to do after the whole Prince indicent and being the vice-captain that he is Naoto helps out. As for everyone else is back in Tokyo waiting for something do.

So now it’s time to take the long train ride home and just relax.


Aw it looks like a bulldog. Reminds me of my cousin’s dog. That dog bit me at a tender age.

So after a quick explanation of the train and why it looks the way it looks(thank goodness I skip all this train stuff from Naoto), it’s time to get on and head back to Tokyo.


Ah nothing like sitting on a train, relaxing. Now if it was me and this train had wifi, I’d be playing Love Live School Idol Festival or playing my imaginary Nintendo 3DS which I can’t get because my Mom wants me to get other stuff for the house.

Not the time for a rant and who knows I’m getting a large check for my final one and I might have enough to get what she wants and what I want.

Anyway, it’s a nice ride and Nana and Naoto will arrive back in Tokyo by 19:30 or 7:30 standard time.

So what can they do until then?

Of course Naoto’s going to get into trouble.

Looks like he hears something. Show us the way, train boy!

So Nana tells him to just leave it to the train’s staff and that they’re just customers. Good reasoning right? It’s not enough for Naoto.

After a quick flash to Tokyo with Aoi and Koumi eagerly waiting the return of Naoto we head back to Nana and Naoto.

Relax bro. Just sit back and chill…

So despite that the conductor(which looks like Passione was lazy and reused Princess Bernina’s character design for her) takes Naoto and Nana up to the driver.

So once he gets up to the driver, he doesn’t even listen to him. Or rather he listens, he just doesn’t think anything’s wrong.

The cute little conductor explains that this is his final job for the National Railways and wants it to end on a good note. Oh if only you knew what kind of stuff was about to go down.

Naoto goes back to his seat and Nana asks if he solved the problem. He says no but then just rushes off again. And he calls…

Mari Sassho!

Wow I legit thought he was just going to go somewhere on the train and find her. She has been in nearly every episode and been in all the arcs.



So he calls her and asks her to listen to the sound of the engine over the phone…hmmm bad idea.

Mostly because it looks like he’s got an iPhone all that money and they don’t do half the stuff an Android can do. Personally I have an Android phone and tablet but my music player(R.I.P.) was an iPod. Android just doesn’t make any good handheld MP3 players so I go to Apple for them.

Sorry for that. Those darn tangents.

So Mari says because of the sound quality she can’t really get a good listen on it. Naoto apologizes and hangs up on her. Then immediately calls Koumi to look up what might be happening in the manuel.

Aoi gets mad and wonders if Naoto thinks about her as similar to Iwaizumi(only good for hitting things around) because he called Koumi first. What do you expect girl? Can you read as fast as she can and memorize it? I didn’t think so!

So we flash back to the train and Koumi has the answer! Turns out that the heat-absorbing fan belt is worn out. How can they tell?


Ooh that has to hurt. I’ve got a few burns and they’re some nasty little things.

Okay now you know the problem but how are you going to fix it? Oh I know. A ex-girlfriend of mine(she was really handy and insanely cute…) her car’s fan belt broke down while we were driving so she took a pair of pantyhose and switched them out until we could get it to an auto shop.

And that’s exactly what they do here. Unfortunately for me, my girl wasn’t wearing the pantyhose so I didn’t get this sight.

So after that we’ve got one problem fixed. While they’re stopping to change the belt, Naoto spots a rail bus.


Aw it’s a cute little thing. Nana explains that how she used those little rail buses you used to work. And we see a picture of Nana working in one of those things. Looks like she followed the path of Mari Sassho and wore a cute maid outfit!



So after that they’re back on the train and Nana explains how the train is able to take curves so well.

Then Nana takes off her jacket…yay!

Then Nana notes that all the passengers are sweating so Naoto checks the air conditioning. And it’s broken! Aw come on. Another problem!

So Naoto consults the legendary all knowing Koumi-san for advice in this matter. After that they head up to see the driver and they see the breaker for the air conditioning was tripped.

Looks like it broke because it keeps flicking down.

So what does Nana do?


Necesity is the mother of all creative ideas but if you have to come up with clever ideas to fix a broken down train then it’s the train’s fault not yours. Scrap this thing as soon as we get back to Tokyo!


That it does, Nana. That it does.


Now this is funny. Check the next picture.

As they talk on the train and mention the Goddess of Trouble Aoi sneezes and you know what that means in Japanese culture. Someone’s talking about you somewhere. Ahahah, Aoi-chan’s the Goddess of Trouble!


So after fixing another problem the team of Nana and Naoto find another one! Why did the Japanese put this train out there? Do they even check for problems?

Turns out Nana heard something short out as they walked pass and the air conditioning hasn’t turned back on.
That’s all nice and all but look at this.


Wow she’s sweating through her shirt. Oddly other than Mari running out of the shower in a towel, this is the only fanservice we’ve gotten. Rail Wars is slipping in its final episode.

With another call to Koumi, they get some answers to how to fix it.

After everything’s fix up, Naoto and Nana head back to their seats and Naoto apologizes for dragging her into this. Nana says that she wanted to ignore it at first but he just couldn’t let her. It was kinda dangerous and so she moved to help him. Just like how she’d do with Gonou. Then cue Gonou sneezing back at Tokyo. Hahaha well at least she said something nice.

So after long journey, the conductor thanks Naoto for all his help.


Give some longer hair to Bernina and they’d be twins. Just lazy Passione. Just lazy.

So another problem pops up and of course Naoto rushes off to help. Strangely it’s endearing after Nana says this.


After a tough journey of having to fix every problem on board they finally return to Tokyo and the K4 room. After that long day Nana and Gonou give everyone tomorrow off.

Well after everything you’ve done today, going above and beyond the call of your duty, you deserve it.

Now that everything’s over, Naoto walks home alone. Strange since ever since joined he’s always had someone by his side. He’s alone but not for long!


Minori Chihara-sama! I mean Noa Kashima! What’s she doing here?

Side note: Minori Chihara appears in the last five or so minutes of the episode but still gets paid the full amount for voicing Noa which is around 3000 yen at least. It could be more because she is a top class Seiyuu. At least 3000 yen for about five minutes of work, now that’s beautiful

Turns out everyone’s having a party in Naoto’s room including his harem! Everyone’s calling him a womanizer and the girls want to finally straighten out this whole harem mess.

But not until after a toast.

And with that Rail Wars is over.


Rail Wars in my opinion the first five episode were half decent and okay. They did what they needed to do but they weren’t the best. Episode six sucked, blatantly and firmly. However episode seven and onwards were the great ones. They had some good action and some great parts to them.

So I give Rail Wars as a whole a 7/10. It had a good ‘daily peace’ ending and a relaxing carefree end to the series. Hopefully it will get a second season and a OVA.

With that, all my stuff for the Summer 2014 Season is completely. Stay tuned in for my stuff for the Autumn 2014 Season.

Just to remind you I have:
1. Fairy Tail the 2nd Series
2. Fate Stay/Night: Unlimited Blade Works
3. ShiroBako
4. Trinity Seven(Side List)

Now remember Trinity Seven’s on my Side List here so you’ll only see it if I drop ShiroBako. However I’m also posting it with Skycorps so if I don’t drop anything you can definitely see them there.

So the hype is real and the countdown to the Autumn 2014 Season is close. So until the first anime of Autumn comes around,
Later Days

First Impressions: Fate Stay/Night: Unlimited Blade Works

Raised by a mysterious sorcerer after the horrific death of his parents, Shiro Emiya has only just begun to help others using the small tidbits of magic that he’s learned. However, when he’s suddenly caught in a battle between two more powerful Magus, Shiro finds himself performing a spell above his expected ability, summoning the beautiful spirit warrior Saber to protect him! But safety is only momentary as Shiro and Saber now find themselves thrust into in a secret world of dark magic and deadly challenges: a no-holds barred duel to the death known as the Holy Grail War! At stake: a prize of unimaginable power. But can the inexperienced Shiro and Saber survive long enough to even enter the contest? First they’ll have to withstand waves of treachery and assassination, even as Shiro scrambles to learn everything he’ll need to know to stay alive as seven teams of Magus and Spirit Servants face off in mortal combat!


Ah the beauty. Ah the genius. That is what Fate Stay/Night is and that is what is going to be what Fate Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works. I just can’t believe it. Right after I finish Fate Stay/Night, Unlimited Blade Works come right out!

This is going to be the most hyped anime of this season. Everyone who’s anyone is going to be on this the second it comes out.

Just so you know if you watched the original Fate Stay/Night, this is a completely different thing from it. Saber is not the main heroine, it’s Rin! No complaints

Now it was confirmed that a hefty amount of the main casts from both the original Fate Stay/Night and Fate/Zero would return. So here we go!

Returning as the awesome Servant, Saber, is Ayako Kawasumi! I legit love her even before watching the original Fate Stay/Night. She’s been in Rave Master(Lead), Fairy Tail, Kaichou wa Maid-Sama, and Queen’s Blade(Lead). She’s done Saber in at least ten different versions of Fate Stay Night so she’s got this down!

Coming back as epic as the Servant, Archer, is Junichi Suwabe. He’s too epic as Archer but that’s not the only thing he’s got on his belt. He’s been in Akuma no Riddle(Eisuke Inukai), Fairy Tail(Freed Justine), the entire Compilation of Final Fantasy VII(Tseng), Fullmetal Alchemist(Greed), Prince of Tennis/New Prince of Tennis(Keigo Atobe), and Sekirei: Pure Engagement(Izumi Higa). Wow that’s a lot and that’s just the stuff I know him from.

Keeping his spot as the lead is Noriaki Sugiyama. Now if you watch the Japanese version of Naruto then you’ll know him as Sasuke Uchiha or watch Bleach and know him as Uryuu Ishida. Now for the rest. He’s been in Kimi no Iru Machi(Ichihara),  and Black Butler(William Spears). Wow I need to watch more of him. Too little of a list.

Being the premiere Tsundere of the show once more is Kana Ueda. She’s been in Freezing(Attia Simmons), Saki(Saki Miyanaga),  and Sekirei(Yomi). I loved her in the original. I can’t wait to see if she tops herself here.

Finally the last one I know is Noriko Shitaya returning as the kind and loving Sakura Matou but things are going to get way harder for Sakura this time around. Unlimited Blade Works isn’t no punk! She’s been in Bleach(Ururu Tsumugiya), Maken Ki and Maken Ki Two(Haruko Amaya), Naruto and Naruto Shippuden(Moegi), and  Pokemon(Candice and Viola). Just wait until Heaven’s Feel Sakura! Hahaha oh the darkness!

You seriously can’t put together a better cast if you tried! I’m going to love this!

This isn’t going to be like Shirobako.

One, it’s a guaranteed success with all the love that Fate Stay/Night has. Fate Stay Night is still one of the most popular visual novels out there and one of the most famous.

Two, this is going to be a two cour series. Now I just learned this myself. Apparently seasons can be called cours and if a anime skips a season and returns the next one it’s called two cour series. Basically it’s an anime that goes for a season, skips the next one, and returns the next one. I wish I could give you an example but typically anime are one and done or they run for a half year, a year, or they’re on every week.

Fate Stay/Night: Unlimited Blade Works will run the entire Autumn 2014 Season, skip the Winter 2015 Season, and return in Spring 2015 Season.

Knowing anime studios they’ll just leave us on a cliffhanger and make us wait until the next half of the season. Those bastards…

So the hype train is gassing up right now and getting ready to leave for Fate Stay/Night: Unlimited Blade Works. Will you be on it or just sit back at the station?

Until the hype even more real,
Later Days

First Impressions: Trinity Seven

This time it’s a double for the Autumn Season. Give it up for Trinity Seven!

Everyday is a normal day in the small town where Kasuga Arata lives; however, everything changed on the day of the Black Sun, and following it, a magician appears before him. The Black Sun caused the Breakdown Phenomenon which destroyed the town where he lives. Because of this, his normal life was artificially reconstructed by a Grimoire that his childhood friend had left. Just what is the purpose of the magician coming to the town? What will he do with the Grimoire’s keepsake?


Now this little gem is unique one in two ways. First it’s going to be my first anime on my side list. Side Listed Animes are anime I’m going to be reviewing on the side…you can tell that from the name. I consider them like the sixth man in basketball except in this case if I drop an anime this one will take the spot. So for example this season if I drop Fate Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works or Shirobako(We all know that it’s more likely to be Shirobako. PA left a bad taste in all our mouths after Glasslip), I’ll post all the reviews I’ve done for Trinity Seven at once and continue on with Trinity Seven.

Now the other piece of news, I’m working with Skycorps as a writer on! Currently this season I’ll be doing reviews for Fairy Tail the 2nd Series and this anime here, Trinity Seven. Things are pretty much going to remain the same. I’ll just basically be double posting my Fairy Tail and Trinity Seven reviews.

So now that’s out of the way let’s get down to the good stuff.

Anime News Network calls this little gem a ‘romantic comedy but sometimes serious magical school story’. That’s got me in right there. Mostly because it reminds me of Sora no Otoshimono minus the magical school part.

Anyway I’ve got good and bad visions for this one. It could go good like Sora no Otoshimono with the fanservice and comedy being funny and the action being awesome. Or it could be like every failed harem anime out there, too much fanservice and plot murdered and left on the side of the road. No pressure though. 🙂

The cast is pretty good.

Yoshitsugu Matsuoka from SAO II will be the lead, Arata Kasuga.(ironic since SAO II will still be airing when this premieres so he’ll be competing against himself.).

Ayaka Suwa from Akuma no Riddle will have a part. She needs to get some points back with me after Jinsei…

And Aya Uchida from Love Live School Idol Project will be here! Big love for Kotori-chan.

Also Ryoka Yuzuki from Naruto Shippuden will have part! Hmm…Mind Transfer Jutsu. That’s right Ino Yamanaka! Love her!

I think we’ve got something good. Unless the studio screws up. Still no pressure.

Until the first episode,
Later Days

You can ask me as many questions as you want on and you can follow me on Twitter to know when my new reviews are coming out. You’ll also be update on what’s happening.

Let’s Look:Fairy Tail 2nd Series Episode 24 Super Mini Review Version:Super Big Party and Princess Hisui’s Cruel Punishment!

Nooo! I’ll take Suzuko Mimori-sama’s punishment….Sorry I’m not allowed to think about her…

Note: I’m referring to my Muse Rejection post and the fact that in the Umi picture she tells you to never think about her again

2nd Note: I’m beginning to think that these Super Mini Reviews are really good for Fairy Tail 2nd Series. Mostly because Fairy Tail reviews can be a fair bit long so doing it like this lets me do more.

Episode 24 of Fairy Tail is called ‘The Grand Ball’.

So let me start this off by saying that you can technically skip this episode. Nothing really happens so you can go right to episode 25 without really losing anything.

So we open with Yukino wondering if clothes like this work for her.

Actually we open with a recap of what happened last episode but I respect you too much to tell you something I already told.

Mirajane, Lucy, and Wendy say she looks beautiful. Turns out that for saving the kingdom of Fiore all the guilds that helped fight the dragons and the mini-dragons were invited to a giant party at the palace.

The food’s delicious looking, everyone’s looking good, and everything’s happy and carefree!

So the first thing that happens after seeing all the guilds are here is Levy writing in her journal on how they defied their fates and saved the day! Good righ? Wrong! Things only get better through shipping!

So Gajeel comes in and asks what’s she up to and she says nothing. She starts about how she was scared for him during his fight with the dragons and how she’s glad he made it back. Awww…that’s why GaLe is my second favorite Fairy Tail pair.

So Hisui goes up to Lucy while she’s eating and we go into a little thing about how Hisui was a good friend of Lucy’s father. She apologizes for treating her friend’s daughter so badly before we switch over to Gray and Juvia.

So Juvia says she’s entering a new age and Grey rejects her once again. Aw come on Gray we know that Juvia’s the only girl that you can be with. She’s the only girl you spend a lot of time with other than Erza, Lucy and Wendy. And the rest other than Wendy are all shipped off to other guys.

Another little thing is Cheria and Wendy eating some jello but Mavis can’t eat any because it would get weird if food was disappearing.

So after everyone just confirming Natsu isn’t around, Erza talks to Kagura about how she would like to be friend despite everything that’s happen. Kagura says no way and wants to be like a little sister to Erza…

Now I am the only one shocked or is it with everyone? Kagura owned Yukino, would have beaten both members of Lamia Scale by herself and fought in a three way deathlock with two of the most powerful female wizards in the series and now she wants to be the cute little sister? I’m filing that one under the repression files. And I’m good repressor. I don’t even know what we’re talking about it’s in there so deep.

Anyway seeing that Millianna’s down, guess what Erza does? She pulls Happy, Carla, and Pantherlily out of her boobs! I just passed weird and went straight into crazy.

So after that, Milliana’s feeling spiffy. My questions how the hell did they fit? Are Erza’s boobs that big to fit three cats?!

Moving on…far along!

Gajeel ends up running into the guys from Sabertooth and after Rogue promises that he’ll never turn into Future Rogue, Yukino rolls around. She tries to run away but Sting speaks up, apologizes, and asks her to return to Sabertooth.

However everyone just jumps in trying to get Yukino to join them and it ends up turning into a fight. Ah now that’s some good fun Fairy Tail standard stuff…

During the fight Yukino smiles and says that it’s good to be wanted.

Then Arcardios stops everything and brings out the King…which turns out to be Natsu who stole all the king’s stuff!

We get some little dances that do a bit for the shipping crowds like Elfman x Evergreen, Happy x Carla, and even Wendy x Grey although Juvia’s staring at them like a creepy little girl…

After the break we get some stuff from Hisui, meaning her punishment for starting the events that led up to the gate being opened. She’s ready to take her punishment. However all the guilds, Arcadios, Darton, and all the masters speak on her behalf for some mercy.

What is Hisui’s punishment?

To wear the pumpkin mask…hat…whatever it is for one week! True evil! You might as well kill her!

So the episode ends with everyone saying kabo and wearing pumpkin hats too.

I’m going to give Fairy Tail 2nd Series Episode 24 a 6/10. It’s funny but not really all that action filled but then again it’s not really supposed to be. It’s supposed to funny and relaxing.

Now this episode was one chapter of the manga just stretched out. Next week we’ll getting two chapters covered and we’ll see the return of some super important and what really happened to Ultear after she used Last Ages.

Until next week where those answers are,
Later Days!

You can ask me as many questions as you want on and you can follow me on Twitter to know when my new reviews are coming out. You’ll also be update on what’s happening.

Let’s Look:Rail Wars Episode 11:Who’s Koumi’s and Aoi’s Prince?

Episode 11, wow the summer season went fast. Now we’re down to penultimate episode of Rail Wars! Let’s see how things turn out

I’ve seen this episode and Rail Wars reminds me of a cousin I have. It’s has its occasional stupid moments but they hit a competency streak and ride that until the end

So we start the episode off with Naoto pushing Bernina into a bathroom and Aoi tells them to hurry it up. However the guy that Aoi pwned last week comes up and pushes her out of the way.

Naoto tries to block him but he gets owned. He tries to use the taser but Aoi takes it like a champ!


Then she kicks him so hard he freaking flies into the hallway.


I think horses should take lessons in how to kick from this girl.


Crap. Looks like he’s coming in again!


Too heroic. Just in time Iwaizumi. Maybe you don’t just think about food.

So after the opening Aoi explains how she managed to catch up to them. She took a Tohoku bullet train make it. Clever. Did she think of that herself? Not knocking her intellect. Just that Aoi isn’t the train type of girl.

Turns out Nana took her so she could catch up. Lucky she did. They needed her.

Anyway Iwaizumi ties up and locks down our captives, Naoto gets a call from Haruka. That’s good. Why are you sitting around chilling when you missed all the action Koumi?


Oh she got captured…awkward…but isn’t she the first to get captured? It seems like she’d be one that we’d just assumed to be caught when ever things go down.

So what does Aoi think on the subject?


Now that’s my Aoi! She’s like an American! We don’t negotiate with terrorists!

Note:Got the wrong picture so just imagine a pic of him saying their find another use for her


Hmm…very curvy big boobed girl with innocence and naivety written on her forehead. He’ll…pop her cherry, deflower her, ummm….make her a woman….I’m running out of jokes. You try it. It ain’t all that easy.

Side Note: Look at this box. How the hell does she fit in it?


Either that’s a massive suitcase if it is I wanna know where he shops because I never seem to have enough room whenever I go on a trip or Koumi’s a lot smaller than she looks.

Note:The average Japanese woman is between 5’1″ and 5’4″ in height which translates to 154.29 centimeters for you Metric system folks

So they check Koumi’s room and inform Nana of what’s happening. She says that’s she’s personally coming to assist them and backup’s on its way but it will take time for them to arrive.

Something I need to show though.


Nothing like a woman in a suit. Sexy professional!

Before she hangs up Nana says that she trusts that he’ll make the right decision

So mysterious terrorist guy’s got them by the balls and what are you going to do Naoto? He blames himself. While as the leader a lot of things are your fault. This isn’t one of them. Koumi, as a member of the Public Safety Force, knew the risks of being on any assignment and took them.


So things get heated between Aoi and Naoto so what does Mari do? She asks Aoi to come and help her take a shower.

Normally I’m the first guy on the fanservice bus but that came out of left field.


That’s nice and all but what does have to do with the plot. Trying a less obvious reaction to the fanservice. How you like?

Okay got that out of my system. Now back to your regularly scheduled review.

Aoi thanks Mari for taking her away when she needed it. She needed a bit of time to cool off. She also says since the terrorists have seen her with them she needs to be on her guard so Aoi advises her to stay beside her ‘prince’ ie Naoto.

So the next scene the train stops to attach an electric train so they can get through the non-electric parts of the Sapporo route without having electric tracks. I assume this is going to come up later.

The scene after that, Aoi and Naoto are watching the prince in their makeshift base of sorts. The subject of Naoto being Sassho’s prince comes up and it gives Naoto an idea.


So Naoto apparently has a genius idea to switch places with the prince while Bernina is escorted off the train and to her destination by Nana


So after we get a flashback from Naoto with Bernina guessing that this might be an attempt to kill her so the sixth person or below in line could be come the king.

Makes sense. If they were selling 3DS for half price, I’d drop kick and leave my brother for it. Shoot. Every man for himself in type of stuff.


Naoto x Bernina! Although I’m still Naoto x Mari though.

So after that everyone gets fired up with Iwaizumi out for blood and Aoi asking to shoot to kill! Yay this going to be a good fight!

So after that we get some stuff from the kidnapper on the drop is going to be done.

Once the train gets to the Datemombetsu Station, the team brings Naoto(our fake prince) to the lead car but of course they realize it’s not the prince.

Let’s see, Duh! He’s taller, he has blue freaking hair, and they don’t even look alike. So what possessed you to think that it was the prince you idiots? If I was your employer, I’d ask for freaking refund.
So Aoi shoots the gun out of guy’s hand Note:Nigh Impossible. Even a sniper on his best day couldn’t do that. and after the dude retreats to get Koumi out, Iwaizumi goes in on him!

So like most times where there’s something stressful, Koumi collaspes into Naoto’s arms. So predictable Koumi-san.

Now the real battle begins since the train’s speeding up really fast. They need to stop it but the dude that wanted a piece of Koumi is holded up there with an automatic.

However Koumi’s brains aren’t going to fail us now! She asks Aoi to shoot out the flares in the lead car for a distraction and it works.


And that creates a smokescreen that Aoi uses to her signature Aoi Kick!

So once they get to the lead car they realize that the controls for the brakes are all busted. Crap! This train’s a runaway!

So at the end of everything what are they going to do?


It works but it’s insane. They’ll have to jump the gap between the cars while they’re at top speed.


It works but at the end this happens.

So now Aoi and Naoto are trapped on a runaway train and faced with that what does Aoi do? She takes off her stockings! Yay Aoi’s long sensual legs!


Yeah I was going to have two pics here but I didn’t want to go too far.

So at the face of being alone and on a train they start talking while Naoto wraps up Aoi’s injured leg.


So it’s true. People don’t have a good opinion of their own looks. Because her legs are her best part!

Another shift in the train has Aoi fall into Naoto’s arms and we get really close to the kiss but we lose it thanks to Gonou.



I guess I can forgive her since she saved them from a train crash but I wish they showed us that.


Total Naoto x Aoi moment!

And they end the episode staring out that this beautiful scene.


I say it’s a pretty good episode in my opinion. It had action, a bit of shipping, and a bit of drama. I’ll give Rail Wars Episode 11 a 8/10.

Now normally I’d have a few more reviews today but I’ve got nothing. I didn’t go to my local library on Saturday to download Fairy Tail also I’m mad that I didn’t get Sword Art Online II either.Reason being that I went to a garage sale, bought an Xbox 360, and got my money stolen. It doesn’t work! Lucky the lady gave me a money back guarantee so I’ll get my money back next week.

I’m here now so that review will probably be out Monday.

I’ll also have the Fuuka Review and the newest Fairy Tail Zero review out soon too.

So next week is the finale of Rail Wars. Have you liked it just as much as I have. Next week, even though I’ve been using them all this time, I’ll use PNG images for the occasion.

Looks like the final episode will be very Nana heavy, in both senses of the word!

So until some Nana action next week,
Later Days!
