Plot: Kaguya Shinomiya and Miyuki Shirogane are the members of the incredibly prestigious Shuichi'in Academy’s student council, asserting their positions as geniuses among geniuses. All the time they spend together has caused the two of them to develop feelings for each other, but their pride will not allow them to be the one to confess and become the submissive one in the relationship! Love is war, and their battle to make the other confess begins now!”
@stoniewylder Lol this guy is pretty much Tetsuo 2.0 in powers and abilities, and heck, pretty damn similar in feats, so I'd say around the same reaction speed: Relativistic+ with all his hippie power.
@stoniewylder Well if we use that laser feat from 160 miles distance, which from the second perspective was shown to be dodged at quite the close distance, we can get an estimate to the guy's speed. Distance = 160,000 miles = 1.609*160,000*1000 = 2.574*10^8 meters If we assume that the laser would have reached the earth in 3 seconds (i don't know what to estimate, it should be a short time either way) then the feat is (2.574*10^8/3)/2.998*10^8 = 0.286 c So 28.6% of the speed of light.
But really it all depends on how much time that feat took, it would likely have it go from sub-relativistic+ to relativistic+ for time variations of 1-10 seconds (85.9% of c for 1s and 8.59% of c for 10s). So i'd put his speed within that range. Which circling around the planet several times in seconds destroying all satellites would be likely pretty consistent with if we assume that planet is about earth's size (40,075 kilometers radius) given that feat would give at the least relativistic speeds if we assume he circled it only twice and in 3 seconds (it would give 8.9% of c).
So i would personally put there at least relativistic for it's speed.
I had the wrong impressions on the anime. It was just those two thought process on love, the exploiter and exploit ed Both have pride in that they will get a love confession. Kaguya is the titular and lead character who is very prideful and goes to great length s.
The episode format is divided into 3 or so stories. The animation kicks up in moments when characters are in a pinch. It is really odd to see these animated striking visuals when you go back to normal.
I can't imagine this topic going for so long. It was a fun episode. Like Sakamoto-kun, it feels like a one trick pony. The novelty will wear off.
The humor felt flat to me. The strongest and most funniest part was the first due to a misunderstanding as Kaguya was referring to first time as first kiss without knowing the phrase first time means sexual intercourse
It is not because I have a dirty mind. The 2nd part was weaker because it was just Kaguya wanting to walk with the student president but she ends up walking a young girl to school and hitching a bike ride with the student president in the end. I can't tell if she plan this and put a cat in her limo engine.
For some odd reason, the ending credits changed to feature the pink haired girl dancing. She was not the main spotlight.
if you live in Japan, there is a special Valentine's Day event
The Kaguya-sama: Love is War anime series is setting aside its characters' differences to put on a Valentine's Day event on Thursday. The Kaguya-sama: Love is War event "Valentine's Delivery Meeting in Arche Omiya" will host voice actress Aoi Koga for a mini talk show and she will hand out original valentine goods for free.
Yu Ishigami made a cameo last episode. This show actually made the effort to point out his cameo. He looks generic.
The treasurer stumbled upon Kaguya's schemes and accidentally takes the tickets which pushes comedically into misunderstanding s and enhanced his fear of Kaguya when he asks Kaguya if she loves school president
I like this episode. The psychology segment was a bit shark jumpy but there were no shortage of misunderstanding
One of the next slots were about nails
She got idea from the maid who show a different side, a gyaru outside personality to her friends
Not as moe intense but Kaguya had a lot of spotlight
She was trying to win Kei's sister's heart in order to win Kei.
Only to find out Chika is already intimate with her
Kaguya quickly changes her mood. She does love Chika from the bottom of her heart.
Later Kaguya tried to make sure the treasurer doesn't fail his exams. Kaguya is a perfectionist I believe, she didn't find the treasurer barely passing to be satisfactory nor her losing to Kei who had the highest score.
I don't think there are a lot of screenshot moments for moe fans but I could be wrong. First time, they catch up on things that transpired from last episodes not including the kabudon love advice couple since they show the plot moving.
Hard to really comment on character development for a pure comedy show that doesn't have drama like Ginama and Sket Dance. Things tend to reset as character quirks are milked for comedy's sake.
Kaguya and student president won't reach their goal until a long time
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.
