Let’s start this week’s random post with some random updates on Marth’s Totally Legit Site. Most of the updates I’ve done so far are functional changes that my life easier when I make new posts, but I found this cool new CSS template that I’m going to be adding to the site soon…I know how much you are looking forward to that!
Also, in case you’re not watching Big Order (which you’re probably not), this is still the greatest scene in anime this week.
Random Anime Episode of the Week
I was thinking of doing Sansha Sanyou this week, but I didn’t think this week’s episode was a strong episode for the series. Instead, I’ll just do a brief aside on Kuromukuro because I’ve almost given up on the series. This week’s episode gives us the conclusion for Yukina’s temper tantrum which boils down to “I didn’t say I wouldn’t go in the giant robot…I just wish you would treat me nicely when you make me do it.” Who thought this was a good idea? Granted, I’m sure that’s not Yukina’s only reason to reject piloting the giant robot, but I’m going to have side with Kennosuke on this one.
Random Music Discovery of the Week
I’m going to toss out a warning before you listen to this…be careful around 2:32. The video does a really random sound change that can be pretty loud and obnoxious. It’s something that I didn’t hear in the actual song, but I couldn’t really find much better versions on Youtube that weren’t blocked. Anyway, this is more of a plug of the band in general. I only found them because I heard they’re doing the opening song for ReLIFE and I wanted to check them out. Honestly, I think this is just solid JRock, which I feel is sometimes hard to find. Some of their other songs like “wasteland” do a really cool job of handling high tempos and I always appreciate listening to stuff like that. Definitely looking forward to what they do in the next season.
