takashichea (Level 25)

I had work on Saturday, so I came home a bit late. I have some time to finish some wiki pages, episode summaries. I did finish wiki moderation. First, I have to relink the Summer 2014 Guide, Crunchyroll, and FUNimation Simulcast guides. PM me if you

Binbogami ga! is one of the new summer 2012 anime series that is very popular in Anime Vice. When I tried it out of Sonata's recommendation, I fell in love with the series. Sonata and I started the wiki project on July 19, 2012, and the anime project ended on September 28, 2012 with a total of 13 episode summaries.

We had an awesome Binbogami Ga! discussion thread, and then, Tom Pinchuk started a series of Watch and Learn articles on it.

Important Wiki Info Pages: Binbogami Ga! wiki project and wiki list

Synopsis

For those who are new to the anime series, here's a synopsis written by DocHaus:

Sakura Ichiko is an incredibly smart, athletic, wealthy, beautiful and otherwise talented high school girl, so much that the Japanese kami are concerned. Apparently, the reason Ichiko is so talented and lucky is because she unknowingly sucks out the "happiness energy" of everyone around her, giving herself extra luck at the expense of others. Momiji, the Japanese god of poverty and misfortune, is sent to suck out some of this energy in order to restore the balance of karma in the world, but not even Momiji's god status can save her from Ichiko's abundance of luck as she becomes thwarted time and time again.

Teammates and Their Roles

I already introduced my teammates in the wiki project blog, so I just going to list them.

Sonata: He's my teammate who specializes in images and powers for the characters.
Daniel Newton: He helps the team by formatting the episode pages with navigator boxes, synopsis, and misc sections.
DocHaus: He's more of a manga specialist, and he works on the main anime series page.
FoxxFireArt: He's there for support when the team needed Japanese names for the characters.

Independent Wiki Editors: Buhssuht, Wraith, and BigHeart711

In addition to Daniel's formatting contribution, Sonata and the gang added references while I added plot summaries. In the table, I will list Tom Pinchuk's Watch and Learn Articles as well. All synopsis are from Funimation.

Next Steps

  • I need to proofread my summaries since I was busy with school. You can see some summaries are really short and some are long.
  • Work on the character wiki pages
  • Do a final impression blog with my teammates

Thanks

Kudos to the Binbogami Ga! wiki editing team for their stellar work!

If you enjoyed a wacky, random show full of fan service and parodies, Binbogami Ga! is the show for you.

Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero (Hagure Yusha no Estetica) is a summer 2012 anime series, and I started working on its wiki project with Daniel and Sonata back in July of 2012. On September 29, 2012, we completed all of the episode summaries and added all of minor characters except for Michael who is a mysterious silhouette in the final episode. I can't really add him since we don't have a profile image.

For those who are new to the series:

The story revolves around Akatsuki Ousaka who is interdimensional traveler. After he saved Princess Listy from the Demon King and returns to his world, he brings a naked, voluptuous, pinked-haired girl named Myuu with him. Due to the request of the fallen demon king, Akatsuki promises to take care of his daughter Myuu. After getting home, Akatsuki and Myuu find themselves enrolled in Babel Academy where children (who survived their interdimensional tasks) are being assimilated into their society. They are taught to hone their skills for the benefit of society.

Unique Wiki Pages

I thank my teammates and everyone for their supports. It has been a blast working on this wiki project with the finest wiki editors here in Anime Vice.

Hey everyone, I know we had a Sword Art Online discussion thread, so I did this weekly report to remind you guys about this wonderful anime series and to promote the wiki pages. So far, my teammates are Daniel Newton and Sonata. Independent wiki editors are Buhssuht, Juuhachi, ElfenLied1012, BigHeart711, and AnimeReviewDaily.

I'm going to review backwards to mix up things. Like always, watch out for spoilers.

Ep. 13: Edge of Hell's Abyss

After a wonderful day of fishing, Kirito and Asuna are back on the front lines with Commander Heathcliffe, Klein, Egil, and a group of SAO players. Before Kirito and Asuna jump back, the two have a deep conversation about life and love.

Good:

  • The boss looks awesome! It reminds me of a Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess boss but better because it has scythes.
  • Kirito and Asuna have some touching moments about their relationships.
  • It's good to see Egil and Klein getting some action.

Bad:

  • Forgive me for this. I don't feel much sympathy for Asuna and Kirito's relationship. Maybe it's the rushed romance or it's Kirito/Asuna's character. Fans would call them the Gary and Mary Stu couple. They don't have much flaws except that Kirito is a loner who can't move on and Asuna is such a cliche perfect girl.

Ep. 11-12: The Morning Dew Girl & Yui's Heart

While Kirito and Asuna are on their honeymoon, they find a little girl (Yui) lost in the woods. They learn she has no recollection of her memories, and the couple helps Yui find her memories. What they find out will forever change their life and relationship.

Note: I would have posted the group hug image, but I like this screenshot.

Good:

  • It was a lovely arc where Yui was basically Kirito and Asuna's child. It had lots of cute and funny moments.
  • We had our first implied sex scene in the series. Though, it wasn't gratuitous enough for some fans.
  • I feel Yui's death was more better executed than Sachi's death scene. It was more of a tear jerker.

Bad:

  • Kirito and Asuna's romance is bit rushed in this series.

Ep. 10: Crimson Killing Content

Kirito and Commander Heathcliffe have their duel. After Kirito loses to Heathcliffe who cheated, he, Godfrey, and Kuradeel embark on a quest. Then, Kuradeel reveals his true colors.

Good:

  • Fans who support Kirito and Asuna, they tied the knot.
  • Love the insecured feeling in this show because you never know someone is going to die or not. Kuradeel's brutal stabbing scene is horrific, but it builds suspense well.

Bad:

  • Either the creator is teasing us, but Kuradeel's story is stupid.
  • Hate or Love it: The scene where Asuna undresses and beats Kirito due to her misunderstanding.

Ep. 8-9: The Sword Dance of Black and White & Blue-eyed Demon

Asuna and Kirito embark on a retcon quest to scope out the boss on floor 74, but when the Liberation Army goes out to fight the boss, it's up to Kirito, Asuna, and Klein to save their sorry asses.

Good:

  • It had the best, intense fight in this series so far. I haven't seen animation like this since Fate Zero.
  • It's great to see Asuna snap because she is seen as the perfect girl. It's better that she has some flaws.
  • Klein and his gang are here, and we need some bromance in this show.

Bad:

  • Typical cliche response: Of course, when Kirito accidentally gropes Asuna, she bitch slaps him.

All comments and help on the wiki pages are welcome. If you need help with grammar or wiki style, let me know. I helped a fellow fan proofread his grammar on the character pages.

Welcome to the last weekly report on Campione! I was surprised they were ending the anime along with Binbogami Ga! and Sket Dance last week.

Plot

Metis arrives to gobble up her daughter Athena. It's up to Godou and the gang to defeat Metis and save the world.

Watch this anime legally at Crunchyroll!

Verdict

Beware of Spoilers!

Good

Godou, You Lolicon!
Godou, You Lolicon!
  • If you love the unique kissing elements in Campione, you'll love this episode. Basically, Godou kiss all the girls in his harem and Athena. I love how the girls just gasp at Godou kissing Athena.
  • Godou's fight is much better than rest. I did not like his whole history lecture. It's great that he only gave it once. The CG in his fight with the swords was a nice touch.
  • Erica and the girls got some action. Though, it's mostly Erica.

Bad

  • Sometimes, screaming in battle works in intense fights, but for this show, it was a bit annoying.
  • If you want a manlier character who can beat the enemy on his own, you would hate Godou who just takes energy from the girls by kissing them. For me, Godou is between weak and strong male leads.

Overall, this episode was the best in this show since it has a good amount of action, lip locking scenes, and friendship talk.

Lip locking Scenes

I don't know why Metis blushes when she's kissing her daughter. It was weird watching the two girls who look like twins kissing.

I love how Ena's kissing scene was dynamic since it's not a profile shot. This is all in chronological order.

Thanks

Thank you guys and gals for reading this weekly report. I hope you enjoyed Campione! anime series. It was a blast to work on its wiki project with my teammates. Please support the franchise and the wiki project with its wiki editors in Anime Vice.

Wiki Progress

After I finished Ep. 13, I have to proofread the episode summaries and transfer episode images to the character pages.

Howdy everyone and welcome to the Fairy Tail weekly report! This is the 2nd to last episode in the filler arc because next episode preview contains scenes of Legion and a scene of Sting Eucliffe and Rogue Cheney.

Plot

Only Brain II is left standing between Natsu and Lucy, but he's the most powerful of the Six Generals! Also, learn the secret history of Lucy and Michelle in this epic finale to the Key of the Starry Heavens arc!

By Crunchyroll

Verdict

Beware of spoilers!

Good

  • Emotional Momentum:Fairy Tail always grabs me when the old Fairy Tail music swings and Natsu and his gang kick butt. It's the only time where talk about friendship is allowed.
  • Michelle and Jude's Back Story: Michelle and Lucy's bond is one of the biggest highlights in this filler arc. In the end, Michelle/Imitatia really love Lucy, but she was controlled by Midnight as a puppet.
  • Natsu's fight with Midnight is short which is good because Natsu's fights are pretty much overpowering his enemies. No creativity or anything new occurs.

Bad

Rogue and Sting might show up at the end of Ep 151
Rogue and Sting might show up at the end of Ep 151
  • Pre-planning crap: I don't believe that Klodoa, Midnight, and the others set this plan for 7 years or more. That's ridiculous if you agree with me.
  • Midnight's daddy problems didn't go so well. Lucy and Natsu just rattled the guy's nerves which led to his defeat.
  • Next episode still includes some filler which will drive fans nuts when they want to see Sting and Rogue.

Bizarre

Cobra and Kinana - what's happening here?
Cobra and Kinana - what's happening here?
  • Kinana x Cobra:Wish we could see more of their back story on how the two met. They're pretty close.
  • Lucy became the ship.
  • What will happened to Kinana? Will she stay with the Fairy Tail guild?

Overall, this episode is decent. After stalling the anime with mediocre fights and stale humor, we're almost at the manga's current story. The unique thing about this filler arc is Michelle who brought a mystery element into it.

Thanks

Thank you guys and gals for reading this report and for supporting the franchise. Remember to watch it legally on Crunchyroll or Funimation.

Wiki Progress

After Ep. 150 is done, characters for this arc needs details. We're behind, but it's all good since we're busy. If you fans out there have free time, you're welcome to contribute to the wiki as long as you don't plagiarize.
