Toonami Roundup: 6/3/17


This week… in Toonami…

Dragon Ball Super episode 20: Beerus wakes up and sneezes away a moon. Meanwhile, Frieza treats those who brought him back like trash, and the Frieza scene is almost scene-for-scene the same as a future episode of Hunter x Hunter. Rating (out of four stars): **1/2

Dragon Ball Super episode 119: Android 18 throws the match by bribing Mr. Satan, so Mr. Satan is still the undisputed World Martial Arts champion! Oh, and some crap with Gohan. Rating: **1/2

Attack on Titan episode 31: Bertholdt and Reiner are Titans too?! For crying out loud, the entire cast is going to be Titans soon enough! Seriously speaking, it was a great episode, if a bit on the predictable side. And now I can finally remember Bertholdt and Reiner’s name. Rating: ***1/2

Tokyo Ghoul episode 9: Cancel it. Rating: 1/2

Hunter x Hunter episode 53: While the Phantom Troupe goes about doing their evil business, Kurapika sees all their (fake) dead bodies. With nothing left to live for, he goes into a dark place. This episode proves you don’t need action to be great. Instead, it pulls on your heartstrings as you feel for a now-broken Kurapika. Rating: ****

Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn episode 21: One episode left! Yes! Rating: *

Naruto Shippuden episode 159: Naruto is still training (yawn), while others try to figure out the mystery of Pain. Pain is obviously pretty much unstoppable at this point, and the question is, who is Pain? Rating: **1/2

Ghost in the Shell episode 14: Apparently wine is the new currency of Ghost in the Shell. Any word on whether it’s worth more than dogecoin? Rating: **1/2

Best show of the week: Hunter x Hunter

Most surprisingly good show of the week: Attack on Titan

Most disappointing show of the week: Tokyo Ghoul


BB 9-10: Selfie

Black Butler episodes 9-10 review

BB 9

I’m late on this so I’ll try to keep it short. Episode 9 contains a mad chase to try to get a picture of Sebastian so Ciel & pals can find out what person Sebastian loves the most (as the camera has a magical feature that allows it to do that). In the meantime, Ciel ends up getting his picture taken, and Sebastian is the one who appears in the picture. Since the “loved one” must be dead, that means that Sebastian is… well, as he puts it, one “beep” of a butler.

Episode 10 is boring as heck. I’m not sure exactly what was going on over there, but it involves Sebastian winning an ice sculpture contest. This episode seemed to be just plain mediocre.

Episode 9 rating (out of four stars): ***

Episode 10 rating (out of four stars): **
