Let’s Look: DanMachi Episode 5: Rolling Around at the Speed of Sound!

Looks like Bell went to Kingdom Hearts and learned Dodge Roll!

Sorry for the late review. It’s finals time at my school so I wanted to focus on them. I should have them out soon. All of them of course.

So we start off the episode with Hestia and Miach drinking…and Hestia’s already drunk. Not your normal drunk. She’s stone cold stinking drunk.

Then she starts raving about Bell.

It’s cute but she can really drink a lot. So after the opening, we have Hestia trying to get over her hangover. Oh the suffering.

Bell’s helping out and when he is since he’s making a lot of cash in the dungeon he asks if she wants to go out.

She totally wants to make demigods…

So she jumps over to her closet and takes a whiff of herself and tells Bell to meet her at the Main Street at 6pm. Looks like she needs a shower. Then again she should smell like alcohol. Not sexy.

So we move over to somewhere new. Looks like a bath house for the gods. Hestia just relaxing in the water.

vlcsnap-2015-05-09-14h33m14s126

Looks she’s happy. Then we get another goddess. Demeter. Go Greeks!

vlcsnap-2015-05-09-14h34m00s66

She’s freaking hot! And after that she casually says that Hestia’s still small but packing huge boobs. I like this Demeter better than the one in Percy Jackson. All she talked about is eating cereal.

So she’s surprised that Hestia came around to the Divine Bath house. Hestia explains that she’s going to meet someone afterward so she wanted to go all out.

vlcsnap-2015-05-09-14h38m56s209

Is it so hard to believe?

Then she calls out to all the goddesses in the bathhouse saying that Hestia who was utterly hopeless in the heavens finally got a man. Hahaha!

vlcsnap-2015-05-09-14h40m19s19

So she explains that he’s a guy from her familia and she gets all embarrassed about it and leaves. However not before Demeter asks what she likes about him.

vlcsnap-2015-05-09-14h41m46s117

Awww that’s sweet.

So we go to the meeting time and Hestia’s looking cute.

vlcsnap-2015-05-09-14h43m13s143

Stay strong Deven! You’re on the team Eina or team Aiz. Stay strong!

So it’s time for the date to begin…until the goddesses that Hestia met at the bath house show up. They even push her out the way to get to Bell.

My man his legend continues to grow!

Hestia’s shocked.

vlcsnap-2015-05-09-14h47m49s156

So Demeter was curious so she and the others tagged along. So Bell finally untangles himself from the crowd of sexy goddesses only to land face first in Demeter’s boobs.

vlcsnap-2015-05-09-14h49m10s198

Poor boy’s going to suffocate.

So Hestia goes on some Flash Step level stuff and manages to sneak away from the goddesses. But unfortunately that means no date today.

Hestia’s sad but at least they got to spend some time together and see this beautiful sight.

vlcsnap-2015-05-09-14h54m10s134

I suppose it’s worth it to see this view. Bell promises to take her back to this spot and next time they’ll have dinner.

And with that Hestia says that she’s looking forward to it.

Then we head over to Lili. She’s getting jacked by her own familia members. How low.

After they take her money, he kicks her down the stairs. As she falls she says she only owes a bit more and with the knife that Bell has she’ll be free.

After that we head to the next morning with Eina. The Soma Familia seems still desperate for cash. I wonder why?

After that we head to Bell and Lili in the dungeon. Bell’s fighting some ants while this thing rushes him!

vlcsnap-2015-05-09-15h00m32s97

That’s true evil right there. Bell gets the rabbits but that leaves him off guard for the next wave of ants.

vlcsnap-2015-05-09-15h01m52s135

Nice assist. So after Bell beats bunny butt, he asks about how she was able to do that. She explains that she used a magic weapon.

So after that it’s time for lunch and Bell shares his lunch with Lili of course.

So before they eat Lili asks for tomorrow off so she can go to a familia meeting.

So when she tells him, he’s all for it.

vlcsnap-2015-05-09-15h07m07s231

He really is a nice boy. If you listened the episode, that sandwich makes a weird as hell crunching sound. What’s in that thing?!

So we move to the tavern with Syr and Bell. Without Lili there’s no point to going into the dungeon so it’s a day off for Bell. He asks Syr what she likes to do on her day off and it’s reading. The boy just about jumps away. I know I have family like that. Ahhh! A book!

But she passes him a book on magic.

vlcsnap-2015-05-09-15h13m31s230

Look Bell even an idiot could undestand this!

So after that Bell heads home to read and apparently took some LSD before hand because goes on a trip. It’s very reflective of the things that he is and the things he’s fighting for.

So after that little moment Hestai comes backand teases him about how the first time he read a book it put him to sleep. After that she does a status update and finds something that shocks her.

vlcsnap-2015-05-09-15h20m38s145

That’s funny. So it turns out that Bell’s got magic now. Look at the noob! Leveling up like crazy.

It’s called Firebolt. Stole that from Harry Potter. Wanna broomstick Bell-kun?

So after getting magic, he of course goes off like a noob and spams it in the dungeon.

Such noob like behavior.

So he keeps spamming magic until he passes out. Lucky we get Aiz and her friend who’s name I can’t remember. And Aiz has some underboob going on.

Looks like some monsters might come up but they get there before anything gets started. Aiz’s has Bell in her lap so when finally wakes up he has this view.

vlcsnap-2015-05-09-15h31m31s20

And when he sees the cuteness of Aiz. Bell rolls out!

Bell Rolling out

Rolling around at the speed of sound. Looks like he knows dodge roll.

So the next morning Bell’s under the covers sad that he ran away. Relax you didn’t run away you rolled away.

So when Hestia gets up she thinks that he had a nightmare because of the book and looks at it. Turns out it’s empty. Eh? Disappearance of a book?

vlcsnap-2015-05-10-11h13m34s139

So Bell rushes out to apologize and figure out a way to pay them back. That’s impossible. You know how much one of those costs. Probably as much as a small house. Far too much for the Familia that lives in an abandoned church basement.

vlcsnap-2015-05-10-11h16m33s119

It’s okay man. Maybe they’ll let you work it off? You’ll probably finish in ten or twenty years.

So Bell goes back to the tavern and apologizes while Syr be ‘I don’t know what you’re talking about. I never loaned you that book…’

So when it goes down it’s already been so no one can change anything so Mia lets him go.

We switch over to Eina where she meets up with Loki and Riveria, that chick who’s name I couldn’t remember. Sorry she doesn’t have much of a presence to be remembered by.

So Loki wants her some Soma wine but Riveria ain’t having that.

vlcsnap-2015-05-10-11h21m52s250

It’s wine Loki not your first born child…

Someone caved and it was Riveria so Eina could get some info out of Loki about the Soma Familia.

What does that mean?!

We don’t get our information as Lili gets pulled away. Those poor fools. She was wearing that massive backpack. How did they take her?!

So Bell sees her getting roughed up by one of those random folks that every town has. He crosses paths with that other dude that was trying to hurt Lili last episode. He talks about trying to steal from Lili but Bell ain’t having any of that.

So when Lili gets away from her meeting, she asks what was Bell talking about with that other adventerer but he says nothing. Probably to keep the peace. When Bell asks Lili what happened she says her stuff was nothing too. As they walk to the dungeon, Lili wonders if it’s time to say goodbye to Bell.

And with the episode ends.

Hmm not the best episode. That’s just me. I wanted a bit more action. I liked but it didn’t give me what I wanted.

So looks like the next episode is all about Lili. I can’t wait. She seems like a really interesting character so it will be good to learn more about her past.

So until the next review,
Later Days

Let’s Look: DanMachi Episode 4: Elf Ears, Cat Ears, and Pointy Ears! Best Ears Ever!

Continue reading “Let’s Look: DanMachi Episode 4: Elf Ears, Cat Ears, and Pointy Ears! Best Ears Ever!”

Let’s Look: DanMachi Episode3: And at 1/4 Mark The Lead Girl Is?

Where is Aiz! It’s hard to ship her with Bell if she’s never freaking around!? Where are the cute shipping moments for the two? I’m not against Hestia x Bell but god if he likes this girl give him something.

So we start off the episode with a flashback.

Aw his grandpa died. What are you going to choose now, Bell-kun?

Snapshot_6 Snapshot_7

Good work!

Unfortunately getting into a familia isn’t easy and he can’t get into any familias.

Snapshot_8

And with that Bell joined the Hestia familia.

And we return to the present with Bell swearing to fight the Silverback and get to get Hestia some time to run away.

Snapshot_9

I’m liking this kid. So after the opening, we head into the arena where some nameless folk are explaining the situation to Ganesha.

Looks like someone snuck in and released them but sucked out the guards’ souls.

Snapshot_10

They aren’t dead but they’re happy. That’s what happened when you meet a freaking goddess of beauty.

So what are you going to do Ganesha?

Nicely done. It shows that even though he’s a god he isn’t too proud to ask for help.

And in order to keep the problem down, they’ve got to move fast. As they leave we get a pic of Freya just smiling her butt off.

Then we head back to Bell who’s getting owned by the Silverback. As he fights we head back to Hestia who’s remembering what Hephaestus told her.

She’s giving a broken weapon that grows with its user to a noob on his first level. If this was Final Fantasy he’d be the most broken character.

Anyway we switch over to Eina who’s talking to one of her coworkers. They got the request from the Ganesha familia to find as many adventurers as they can to deal with the threat of the monsters.

Snapshot_19

Ah perfect timing. Now do something sexy and ship worthy Aiz!

And so after we switch back to Bell running for his life.

And as the Silverback comes at him again he wonders if Aiz’s going to come and save him. Sorry bro she’s busy killing other monsters.

Snapshot_23 Snapshot_24

So there’s no help coming for you man. Other than this…

Snapshot_25

You’re screwed but Bell goes on some parkour stuff and manages to save her.

But the Silverback gets them with a back hand and sends them flying throw a door. After they land Bell asks Hestia why did she come back.

Snapshot_29

That’s sweet. And when she says that she’ll protect him and he do the same for her.

And with that she says it’s too early to give up. Unfortunately the Silverback finds them again so Bell has to carry Hestia, bridal style.

Snapshot_30

She totally wants to make Demigods.

And while they run away Bell finds a secret compartment on the street and hides there. Now for their comeback, Hestia says that she’ll update his status and he’ll beat that monster easy!

All Bell can offer is excuses but Hestia believes him and gives him the knife that Hephaestus made for him.

Snapshot_31

Sounds like someone wasn’t creative that day. Then again do you really need it when you’ve got an anime character that trends like no one’s business?

So after that we go over to Aiz kicking butt again and some of the Ganesha familia say that the Silverback is still out there and was last seen chasing someone. Aiz takes off after it. Come on…let’s see some love!

So we move back to Bell and Hestia with the status update. And we see that the flashback of Hephaestus is the only one that can use that knife is Bell.

After that the Silverback finds them just as Hestia finishes the update.

Snapshot_32

And with that Bell rushes out and goes all aerial badass on him.

And Bell ends the fight like he’s epic but he is!

Pretty epic of you Bell. You’re on your way towards greatness.

And after that battle everyone comes out and gives Bell some applause.

Snapshot_45 Snapshot_46 Snapshot_47

And Aiz arrives just in time to see Bell’s epic moment. Also Loki wants Aiz’s butt.

Snapshot_48 Snapshot_50 Snapshot_51

Everyone that doesn’t want Hestia wants Aiz. It’s natural.

As we move back to Bell and Hestia passes out.

Snapshot_52

And we see Freya and looks like she’s planning more things for the future.

We get a quick look at Eina and she’s wondering about the state of events and why things happened.

After that we go to Bell in the tavern and turns out they lent Bell a bed so Hestia can rest.

Syr also apologizes. If she hadn’t forgetten her wallet then none of this would have happened.

Snapshot_53

I’m beginning to think she forgot it on purpose. Everyone wants Bell. It’s natural.

Bell doesn’t mind though and Syr’s totally in love.

Snapshot_54

My man’s skills are high level.

After that Hestia finally wakes up and Bell tells her that all the monsters have been taken care of. When Bell asks who made the knife, she tells him that it was the one and only Hephaestus that made it!

Hestia always saw Bell looking into the Hephaestus Familia’s shop and she wanted to give him something to help on his journey. This is the least she can do for him.

After seeing everything that Hestia does for him, Bell cries.

After that we see this little girl with this massive backpack as we end the episode.

And with that we have a great episode. We see Bell just owning that Silverback.

I can’t wait for the next episode.

Until then,
Later Days

Let’s Look: DanMachi Episode 2: Cute Goddesses Make Everything Good

Hestia still trending and Aiz appears a grand total of once. I’m sad now.

So when come in we see Hestia doing the status that Bell must have gotten from that battle he did last week.

Snapshot_1

What do you expect? He fought all night.

So since it’s Aiz that’s driving his growth, Hestia takes out her annoyance at being number two in a calm and adult way.

Snapshot_2

I lied.

So she thinks to tell Bell about his skill but thinks against because the other gods might be watching.

After the opening we have Hestia say that Bell’s been growing at a massive rate. However despite the fact that she’s annoyed with the fact that he’s growing so fast because of Aiz, she’ll still stick by him and support him.

Nice of her. I respect that. BUt in exchange she asks that he won’t be rash like last night.

So after that Hestia says that she’s going to be gone for the next few days.

Snapshot_3

Now does that look like the smile of someone that should be trusted? I don’t think so.

Anyway we switch over to Bell and he’s apologizing to the barmaid of the Mistress’s Abundance for running out with playing.

I think that she’d beat him to death for that cash.

After that Syr gives him a lunch and does it so cutely Bell has to take it.

The barmaid also tells Bell the only reason why they forgave him because Syr put in a good word for him. After that the barmaid gives some good words of advice.

That’s some good advice. I like it.

So she gives him a push out the door and Bell gets started on his day.

After that we switch to the God’s Banquet which is the party that Hestia mentioned she was going to.

Snapshot_12

Aw isn’t she cute?

But there’s a difference between cute and hot. This is hot.

Snapshot_11

She’s hot and voiced by Yoko Hikasa using her sexy mature voice. Ah the melodies coming from her voice. Anyway I thought this was funny.

Snapshot_13

I knew she was short but come on she doesn’t even get up to half of Freya’s height.

After Hestia snarks at Freya, Loki comes around. It doesn’t take long before the two goddesses get into it.

Snapshot_14

Greek gods: 1 Norse gods: 0

And of course Hestia’s boobs are jiggling all during this.

And with that we take a quick peek back with Bell before going back to the gods.

Snapshot_15

Someone’s going to be dumb and say ‘Deven I don’t get the picture’

The Japanese word for cow is Ushi and a common saying for a girl with big boobs is to call her an Ushi Onna or Cow Udders. As for the board, well it means flat as a board.

Snapshot_16

Greek gods: 2
Norse gods: 0

Snapshot_17

And with that Greek gods take the gold in boob size. Why? They’ve got Hestia and her.

Snapshot_18

When did the god of the forge get this hot?!

So the first they say isn’t how are you doing? What you’ve been up to?

Snapshot_19

That’s how some of my friends when I haven’t seen them in a while.

So Hepheastus says that Hestia sponged off her familia for years until they finally kicked her out.

After that the sexy Freya leaves and Hestia asks Hephaestus to make a weapon for Bell.

After that Bell runs into the god Miach on the street while looking at some expensive equipment.

Let’s look…hmm Miach is a god in Irish Mythology. Looks like there’s a lot of mythologies mixing together here.

Anyway Miach talks about how he was invited to the ball but chose not to go because his Familia needed the extra hands since it’s so small.

Snapshot_20

He gives Bell two vials of what I think might be some type of medicine and leaves. Pretty nice guy in my book.

So we switch back to Hestia and Hephaestus where Hestia is bowing in front of Hephaestus. It isn’t one of those worship bows but a Japanese begging bow.

Figures. A Greek goddess wouldn’t know that naturally. She’d have to go to a Japanese god for that.

After that we get a flashback where Hestia actually bowed during the party and asked for Hephaestus’s help.

Wow that says something about Hestia. I thought she’d be too proud to beg for help. She’s really willing to do a lot for Bell to realize his potential.

So Hephaestus is willing to hear out her reasons for doing this and she’s touched by Hestia’s willingness to help Bell. I personally am too. She knows she’s not a big name goddess that can easily give him everything he needs to succeed. Despite that she’ll do anything she can to help him even if she’s got to take some shots to her pride. Now that’s a good person.

Despite the fact that she’s over-hyped and a bit tsundere, I can’t help but root for little Hestia to win Bell’s heart. I’m still Team Aiz because those Kuuderes are too cute and awesome though.

And that speech really touches Hephaestus’s heart and she chooses to make the knife.

Snapshot_42

Alright!

Snapshot_43

Damn!

And it turns out that Hephaestus is going to make it herself.

Wow second episode and Bell’s already getting a weapon forged by the god of the forge. Slick my man, very slick.

Snapshot_44

It’s cute….when she jumps…

Deven runs

Anyway we flash to the next morning where we see Bell getting called out by this girl.

Snapshot_49

Cat ears! Not as good as Elf Ears but a close second!

So she hands him this wallet and tells him to track down Syr and give her back her wallet. As to why he needs to do that she forgot it when she skipped out on work to go to the Monsterphilia.

At least she’s resposible enough to take a day off to go and instead of just skipping. So being the noob that he is, Bell asks what Monsterphilia is.

Ah now that sounds interesting. It’s like Roman Colosseum style.

After the explanation we switch over to literally the only scene with Aiz in it. It’s Loki and Aiz with someone in a cloak talking. It’s pretty obvious to me that it’s Freya.

Hmm it can’t be Aiz because she’s too established as a member of Loki Familia. It must be Bell then. No one would notice if a kid switched from a low level Familia to a higher level one after all.

Snapshot_62

Now that’s the smile of evil…very sexy evil but evil nonethenless!

We switch over to Hestia and Hephaestus and the knife is finally finished!

Snapshot_63

Now ain’t that nice. Hephaestus straps it onto Hestia’s back and she goes out to look for Bell.

Then we go back to Loki and Freya. Pretty much the only reason that Freya wants Bell is because he’s good looking. Pretty vain but then again goddess of beauty.

After that Freya leaves and apparently sticks Loki with the check. Darn that hot goddess!

Snapshot_64

After that Aiz’s briefly and when I say briefly I mean blink and miss it reacts to the fact that Freya’s targeting Bell. Looks like things are still up in the air if she has similar feelings.

We head back to Bell who finally meets up with Hestia. And instead of just giving him to the knife and then doing what she wanted to, she asks him to go out on a date with her first.

Hestia…just give him the knife.

After that they go to a crepe shop and get some crepes. Bell don’t you have to return a wallet?

Snapshot_65

Now that’s cute.

Snapshot_66

Anyway while this cute little date is happening, Freya goes down to the monster cages and releases this thing.

Snapshot_67 Snapshot_68

I can see that this is going to end badly. Evil goddess!

So predicably the monster gets out but not predicably it’s after Hestia and not Bell. Well that didn’t go over well.

It chases them through out the city until Bell has no choice but to lock Hestia up and fight the thing himself.

Snapshot_69

I’m liking him more and more. He knows he can’t win but he’ll fight to protect her anyway.

The episode ends with Bell’s knife breaking and him at the mercy of the monster.

I’m fond of this episode. It wasn’t Bell that was the focus but Hestia. It showed how much she really cares about Bell even he hasn’t thought of her as a lover yet. Aiz may be good but she’s losing to Hestia right now. Hurry and give her some scenes.

So that’s all I have for this review. Hopefully Hestia will remember that she’s got a knife made by the freaking goddess of the forge on her back and give it to Bell. That would make so much sense.

So until the next episode,
Later Days

Let’s Look: DanMachi Episode 1 Review: Ah the SAO likeness

Look at the title now at this review. If you think I’m going to write out that long as hell title every time you’ve lost your mind.

Now the major question of this anime, Is is wrong to try and pick up girls in a dungeon? No it isn’t!

Ah it’s time to start a good one of the Spring Season, DanMachi! I will make this clear now. I am not going to say the full title ever. It takes too long to type.

So we start off with an explanation of the world by some off screen character. We later learn that it’s Hestia but still we don’t know that now

So all the people are living with Greek gods all the time?

And while the explanation goes we get our main character getting owned by a minotaur until this girl saves his butt.

Snapshot_12

Hello cutie!

And I find a little sadness in this. Aiz is voiced by Saori Onishi and Bell is voiced by Yoshitsugu Matsuoka so in this anime Eriri wins! Damn it! Team Kato all the way!

I’m referencing Saekano from the Winter 2015 Season if you don’t know.

So there’s this.

Snapshot_13

Look familiar? How about now?

vlcsnap-2014-10-12-13h52m30s163

Are you my master?

So apparently Bell runs through city to convert his crystals into cash and he’s covered in blood of the minotaur.

Snapshot_14

I guess you couldn’t stop and take a shower.

Snapshot_15

Elf Ears! I love elf ears! Those elf ears are the reason I love Caster from Fate/Stay Night and Assassin of the Red because of those ears! Those ears!!!

And when she sees Bell all covered in blood and just running to her all casual like she does this.

Snapshot_16

She’s at least 20% percent cuter because of the elf ears.

So after the shock and Bell asks to know more about Aiz they settle inside.

So Eina gives Bell a lecture about being more responsible since he’s only being going into the dungeon for about two weeks. Be careful man. Those monsters that you got lucky to survive pwn noobs like you everyday.

Despite that she’s happy that Bell’s okay. After Bell asks about Aiz again and Eina teases him about falling for her. Then she gives him the information that he knows about her.

Wow she’s strong and very Asuna like. Ironically Eina’s voiced by Haruka Tomatsu so the joke goes full circle.

Then she says that it’s going to be difficult for Bell to get her since they’re a part of different Familias and he’s a level one while she’s level 5.

Snapshot_21

So cute. Elf Ears rock.

Despite that Eina says that it’s possible for his feelings to reach her if he keeps training and going into the dungeon.

So after he exchanges his magic stones for some cash, he leaves and heads back into the streets. While that happens, Bell remembers something his grandpa said.

Sounds like Tomoki’s Grandpa from Sora no Otoshimono. Not sound wise but finding a cute girl in the dungeon part.

Anyway after that Bell heads to this small run down church and when he returns he gets tackled by this little girl.

Well she’s little in some places and big in others…

Just so you know I’m writing this on April 8th and Hestia, this character, is trending. And it ain’t just a flash in the pot, she’s been trending since freaking Friday! I’ve got my theories… It’s the Big Boobs Loli Twin Tail Tsundere Theory. It states that any character that has at least two of these traits will instantly become popular…she’s got all of them so that explains that…

So after that Hestia goes all cute on him…

Freaking cute as hell.

So while Bell was out Hestia cooked some fried potatoes for their dinner. That’s nice but then she has to make it all weird for the viewer by saying this.

Snapshot_31

Oh you kinky little goddess.

So while they’re eating Hestia groans about not having many people in their Familia but since she isn’t a well known goddess it’s to be expected. Even in Greek Mythology, she’s forgotten a lot. She isn’t complaining much though since she has Bell to hang out with.

I think she wants to make demigods…which is really funny if you know Hestia’s supposed to be a virgin goddess in Greek Mythology.

So after some cute poses from Hestia…wait here you go. Never say that I don’t give you anything.

She ain’t called the Loli Boob goddess for nothing…

Anyway after that Hestia updates Bell’s status which is a fancy way of saying that she’s allocating his stat points.

Definitely a very video game like anime. I’m not complaining though.

While that happens something happens during the ritual that makes Hestia gasp.

While that happens Hestia talks on and on about how hard it is going to be for Bell to get Aiz’s attention and he should be looking for the girl that’s closer…

Yep she totally wants to make demigods with him.

After that Hestia hands Bell his stat sheet and he looks pretty sad about it. Check for your self.

Snapshot_50

Those stats are pitifully low. His VIT is so low, I’m shocked that he was able to look at that minotaur without dying. He’s got good AGI and okay STR. He might be a Sweeper type, able to dish out damage fast but can’t take it.

Then we flash to the next morning and we get this scene.

Now I want to make demigods with Hestia…then again who doesn’t now a days.

After having a standard harem protagonist reaction, Bell gets up, gets ready, and leaves for the day. While going out and getting ready for a day in the dungeon, he meets this girl.

Snapshot_54

She hands him back one of his crystals and she gives him her lunch since his stomach was growling. When he says that he can’t take she says she’ll just eat at the pub when it opens.

Snapshot_55

But in exchange she asks that he eats there tonight. Seems fair.

Snapshot_57

You’ve got me wanting to go now.

So then we switch to Bell in the dungeon fighting.

Snapshot_58 Snapshot_59

Not bad. You’ve grown but he wonders how long it’s going to take to catch up to Aiz.

Snapshot_60

And thinking of that he just jumps into a pile of enemies. Reminds me of what my grandpa said. “Put a good girl at the finish line and you’ll run your ass off” Granted kinda sexist implying that woman are prizes but the theory holds.

And after a day of adventuring, Bell goes back home to Hestia where we see that he’s got a massive jump in his stats.

Not bad. And when he asks why he grew so quick, Hestia just leaves in the most tsundere of fashions.

Then we go to Hestia where we see that she’s getting worried about losing Bell to Aiz.

Here’s something I found funny about Hestia.

49711109_p0

See my theory at work. She’s got all of them so thus she was destined to be popular.

Anyway with no Hestia to cook dinner, Bell goes to the Benevolent Mistress pub to get some dinner. After that the barmaid just loads him with food and barely has enough to cover it. Being Bell is suffering.

Snapshot_64

That’s why you need to know how to cook. It costs less in the long term.

Snapshot_65

At least someone’s happy right now. We know it isn’t Bell’s wallet.

After that we get a new group come into the Bar.

Hey it’s Aiz. Wow that’s a short dress. It’s not even a dress more like a long shirt.

So turns out that they’re the Loki Familia and Aiz is one of their top members. Hmm top member of the top guild, wears a lot of white, uses a rapier like sword, about to become the love interest of someone voiced by Yoshitsugu Matsuoka…sounds a lot like Asuna. Of course the personality must be a lot different.

Anyway Loki Familia’s here to celebrate another successful raid and it turns out according to Syr(the barmaid that Bell met that morning) they’re regular customers. Their goddess is Loki.

Snapshot_71

Wasn’t Loki a guy in Norse Mythology? Whatever.

So the wolf looking guy start getting drunk and talking about this guy that Aiz had to save and he got covered in blood. Obviously he’s talking about Bell. Of course Bell gets ashamed and embarassed. Bete starts asking if Aiz would go out with a guy like that and Bell just can’t take it. I guess he didn’t want to hear the answer.

So he runs out. What’s good is that Aiz notices and even recognizes him. I’m shocked. The last person I’d be able to recognize is the guy covered in minotaur blood.

However she doesn’t make it out in time.

Now this is funny.

Snapshot_72

Reminds me of the end of Episode 1 of Sword Art Online when Kirito does that scream at the end.

Then Bell goes into the dungeon and starts training.

Wow my man’s going in. His awesome isn’t on Arata’s level(I have only met like two harem protagonists on Arata’s level) but he’s like a 7 to Arata’s 10.

So the next morning, Bell comes home, all beat up and exhausted, and tells Hestia he wants to get stronger.

Snapshot_86

And with that Hestia says okay and the episode ends there.

Good episode. I thought that it really shone. Bell’s not the guy that’s already at the top but he’s working to get there. I think his journey is one worth watching.

I’m definitely going to stick with this one. The only problem I have is that Hestia’s still trending. God don’t ever overhype and over-expose a character. People will get tired of her…at least that’s supposed to be the theory.

So that’s all I’ve got for this review.

So until the next review and hopefully Hestia will stop trending,
Later Days

Did you really think I’d take the easy way out and get a Hestia pic. I prefer to make it harder for myself. I get my pics from Zero-chan not Pixiv.

First Impression: Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka

The huge labyrinth city, Orario, is the gateway to the huge underground maze commonly known as the “Dungeon.” Its strange name causes excitement, a place to gain honor, and maybe even a romance with a pretty girl. A place where people hold their breath, hoping to gain all they wish for, a place where a solitary young man meets a little “god.”

 “Alright, Bell-kun, follow me! It’s time for the “Familiar” initiation rite to happen!”
 “Yes! I’m going to get stronger!”

 The fated meeting of a boy who wants to become an adventurer, and the failed god who doesn’t even have a single follower.

 This boy’s journey as written by the goddess, “Family’s Legend” (Familiar’s Myth)

 

Ah something genius. I needed something that reminded me of Sword Art Online. And here it is! DanMachi! Why? We’ve got Yoshitisugu Matsuoka. Now let’s look at what’s he’s done the last two seasons. Trinity Seven, Saekano, Absolute Duo, and now DanMachi. I think that he’s making a name for himself as a harem hero. I’m not complaining.

Note: I’ve watched a good friend CuriousCloudy’s Review of the manga so I’m going to look at it from that perspective.

So I like this anime or at least what it has the potential to be. It’s supposed to be like a video game like system but it’s actually real life for these characters. I wonder how they keep up with them? Is there are song when they level up?

Anyway…

There’s a good cast in this one and it’s getting clearer and clearer that Yoshitsugu’s got a harem and he’s taking them everywhere he goes.

So our main character is played by Yoshitsugu Matsuoka and it’s clear that his character’s going to get a harem. It’s only a matter of time…

Coming off a great success in Saekano, it’s Saori Onishi. She’s been in Mahouka and Saekano in terms of stuff I’ve seen. Looks like she’s only been at the game since 2012. Let’s hope that she does a good job like how she was with Eriri.

We’ve got Maaya Uchida. Ah a good one from last year in my opinion, mostly because she played Kaguya Yamai back in Date A Live 2. I think that she’ll be good at this one.

Ah Kirito’s main girl. It’s Haruka Tomatsu! She’s always seen to be in an anime with Yoshitsugu either as a love interest or just as a side character. Must be luck or fate…

I’m hoping for them to announce the wedding date.

Eh?! Yurika Kubo is playing a bisexual goddess of mischef? Hanayo would be so disappointed. I think that she can really play the cuteness in this role personally.

And finally Yoko Hikasa, another member of the harem I guess since she worked on Trinity Seven. She’ll be the Freya, the goddess of beauty. With a voice like that, it will work.


I’m personally looking forward to this one. I always like video game like anime.

So until this anime premieres on April 3rd,
