- Realize this: Watching anime requires there to be anime to watch. Writing posts requires time and care. I lack one of these three things. #
It’s certainly been a long time since the last long post I wrote about Index 2. Any episode, essentially, with Misaka Mikoto is worth writing about though.
Misaka and Touma are in this sports tournament which of course the entire city participates in. While the parents are meeting, Touma is devising a way to get to the inner spark of Biribiri. The bargain is that if her school wins, he has to do anything she wants him to do, and if his school wins, then she must do anything he wants. I recall that they’re only one year apart, that Touma is in high school while Biribiri is in the last year of middle school. Sounds like a great match.
I haven’t been around for a while. I don’t make any promises. However, for that intervening time, I dropped Amagami SS because it was boring. I took a gamble at the first episode of the final arc.
I can’t spell her name now, save Tsukasa-san. I was impressed. All of that quite common interaction and quaintness. Suddenly, bam — you’ve got a Class Representative in your face, choking you.
- Episode 6 of Index 2 seemed a lot like watching Railgun last year. It was excellent. Better than the first 5 episodes. #
Happy Halloween! I remember that as a freshmen in high school, I watched Ghost Hunt the day before and the day of Halloween. Some of those arcs were especially gruesome and terrifying and of course, when it’s close to Halloween, it does indeed get kind of spooky.
Ghost Hunt Ghost Hunt was kind of different. It wasn’t a mainstream series. It’s kind of like a well written Occult Academy – in the sense it deals with paranormal and often impossible things. It’s story is based in arcs, where each arc is a case the team has to solve before some horrific happens to either someone they’re solving the case for or one of the team members themselves. It was a fun series, moments of humor, there was some romance and of course what everyone wants, some horror.
Looking back now, the animation might come off slightly dated but after five years, isn’t that to be expected? Just a few months ago, during summer vacation, I took a few hours to re-watch my favorite arcs and I was satisfied. The average ANN rating is Very Good so I’d say it’s worth your time too.
You can grab the DVDs in English from the Funimation website. Or simply stream the episodes with subs, presumably, from ANN. The first episode starts out with three girls telling ghost stories after school in a dark science lab. What happens after that is anyone’s guess, unless you watch!
Once again, Happy Halloween.
