ton of exposition on Turbines, which leads to Jasley helping out Iok to help his standing with Teiwaz so pretty much agendas all around. hopefully we follow Naze and the Turbines a little more since we don't typically get too much of them, and it could lead to some interesting stories.
Atra fails to break the ice about babies with Mika because well, Mika isn't exactly the greatest at small talk lol.
Deathflags have been up for many characters, and we saw that go into fruition. Making Iok into someone to loathe certainly paid off. Julietta named the Mobile Suit "Julia"? lol. Not very creative. Pretty much in line with Shino's name giving.
Jasely helped Iok framed Naze for holding a banned weapon, Flauros and another name, which McGillis states it was in the grey area.
I didn't expect fan service in this show. I didn't get the ecchi shots of Naze and Amida's bed scene as they explore how they first met and how they founded Turbines and rise up the ranks of Teiwaz.
Naze doesn't want Orga to fight with them as he wants Tekkadan to fall into their trap.
This episode had some death flags due to a backstory reveal since my time in Magical Girl Rising, backstories are either death flags or not
Besides the ominous feeling, I love Atra's scene with Kudelia turning her request for Kudelia to bear Mika's child into a competition between the two friends. Atra does her best to get Mika in the mood by talking about how babies are cute.
S2EP15 Man that ending.... Iok you fcking bastard, bring in Jesus Yamato and Heero! this bastard and Julieta needs to die slowly and gets to feel how utterly weak they are in the face of pro Gundam pilots. Akihiro tho.... I know dense characters are a thing but dude... Lafter meant hugging you not strangle you.
Death flags for Naze and Amida came true from the last few episodes - Iok wouldn't take them alive instead he wanted to kill them all. Felt bad Naze and Amida's heroic sacrifice to bring down Iok only brought down the other fleet. So Iok is still alive.
It was a tragic episode but a good one since I actually felt something.
S2EP17 Ah sweet revenge, also nice animation, Mika was owning everyone out there. Loved the part when Barbatos just went savage and came outta nowhere infront of the enemy ship, that was badass. Now Iok, you can run, but you cant hide.
Dream: Last anime I will be covering is Gankutsuou: Count of Monte Cristo. Will start watching it tomorrow. Not sure how much longer I can keep myself up at this point.

Taka: Depending on my energy, I can watched up to 2 AM. Usually with work, I fall asleep on anime series that don't have a lot of action.

Master Menos: Finally got out of the fast food job. It was a graceful exit, but to be honest, I'll miss some of those guys. Got a sprained ankle from it since September, so I'll finally focus on healing that back at the family home.

HungryWorld: Well if anyone remembers what happened to Pingu in the City, with it being joke 10/10 scored on MAL just to get it into the top 10 anime... well now is Ishuzoku Reviewers' turn. Seems that in response to Funimation's cancel people boosted the score hard.
Feb 11, 2020 2:11:38 GMT
Taka: What? That sounds so weird.
Feb 11, 2020 5:36:23 GMT
Master Menos: It's damn awesome to be honest. It shot to 1st Place!

Dream: On the subject of MAL, it looks like the admin are planning to tweak their scoring system for titles to reduce the likelihood of voters artificially inflating the ranking of certain titles.

Master Menos: My V-Day present will be belated this year because I "Had some trouble with ol' Johnny." (That's your hint.)

Dream: The joys of adulthood. Joking aside, plan to at least attempt to wrap up Gankutsuou sometime early to mid next week so I can get done with my Funi voted titles. Afterward, not doing any more voting for a while considering how long this had been taking.
Feb 15, 2020 16:50:30 GMT
Dream: Done with Gankutsuou. Will be working to get a review up for it by sometime tonight.
Feb 16, 2020 20:57:26 GMT
Taka: Great job, Dream! I should do some reviews, too.
Feb 17, 2020 5:24:39 GMT
Dream: Looks like MAL's currently down due to the site getting hit by a major denial-of-service attack, just as a heads up.
Feb 18, 2020 17:55:23 GMT
Taka: I added 2 polls tonight. Also, I wonder why MAL was down. Crunchyroll also had it, too.
Feb 20, 2020 4:05:24 GMT
Dream: Not sure about Crunchyroll. For MAL, the DoS attacks may have been retaliation by those who dabbled into manipulating the site's scoring system for certain anime titles. The admin on MAL announced they would be overhauling the system to prevent said...
Feb 20, 2020 13:42:15 GMT
Dream: ...manipulation last week.
