Log Horizon, you just keep on delivering! Last week it was filled with awesome action, this one had good humor, some more background information of some characters and light-hearted fun. (Gods, I missed Rudy being Rudy )

So I watched a certain scientific index... I didn't think it was very good. At all.


Are you talking about A Certain Magical Index or A Certain Scientific Railgun? I'm not as fond of Index, as it tends to involve a guy with no real super powers telling all the people around him with super powers to go home so he can run at that bad guy with super powers and try to punch them. Railgun on the other hand is a spin off of Index and I rather like it because the guy's largely left out and now we get to see the actual bad asses with all the super powers go at it. It amuses me that Index is supposed to be the one aimed at guys and Railgun for the female viewers.


Index. A bit to cheesy for me.


Watch Railgun. They drop the harem stuff and pretty much All of the magic and just go with the science side with psychic with super powers. The one girl is still a raging pervert with a lady boner for Railgun and played up for comedy relief though.

Alright, let's do this.

Spoiler:
So, those weird zombie kids all have psychic powers due to reasons, including telepathy, telekinesis, other tele-stuff and other stuff-kinesis-things (they make stuff happen with their minds, as you probably knew.) For Reasons, Kaneda also gets psychic powers. But for reasons, his are super powerful, and because he's older, he can't control them as well. So one of the things he was doing with his powers was amping up his biology (he may or may not have been juicing- I'm really not sure what's going on with the pill motif), and so that started going out of control and he mutated into giant demonbabycancerfetus.

It turns out that what happened to Kaneda also sorta happened to another one of the zombie kids waaay back when. That kid was named Akira, but instead of him going demonbabycancerfetus, instead he started teleporting/collapsing all matter around him into Astral space (that's the giant glowy sphere bomb). Somehow Akira got killed or knocked out while doing his Astral Teleport bomb, saving the city from destruction. The Scientists then dissected/vivisected him and saved his bits and slices in the little tank things- but because his psychic powers were so strong he was still conscious and thinking. He activated his Astral Teleport Bomb again in order to suck all of Kaneda's demonbabycancerfetus-ness into Astral space, where Kaneda could just be Kaneda instead of being suborned by his powers. He also pulled the other Zombie kids in with him (or they jumped) so they could all be happy hanging out together in Astral Space.

Or they're all Jesus. Depends on how religious you are.


I think that's it. That's how I see it, anyways.
Just one minor correction to your otherwise fine summary, but it's Tetsuo not Kaneda that loses control of his new powers.

The problem with trying to understand the anime of Akira is that it's trying to fit in all the story from the Manga without becoming a 6 hour film. There is much chopped out and many story elements that are altered for time saving, and without knowing the Manga not everything is properly explained.

Incidentally, the Manga is well worth reading for the artwork alone.

How I see it:
Spoiler:
After the accident where Tetsuo crashes into Takashi, the government find that he has some latent psychic powers that are exhibited by Takashi, Akira and the other test subjects. The scientist therefore perform some operations/experiments to awaken Tetsuo's powers.

However, Tetsuo doesn't want to play ball and escapes. Going looking for Akira, who he thinks is the cause of his headaches, he finds what is left of Akira after the scientists had finished with him following the explosion that destroyed Tokyo when he fully awoke.

As Tetsuo is no longer taking the powerful drugs that the government supplied, his powers become uncontrollable and he eventually turns into the blob, which is a precursor to fully awakening. As Takashi and Co don't want to see Neo-Tokyo destroyed in the same way as Tokyo was, they convince (revive, in the Anime) Akira to absorb Tetsuo.

*Tetsuo's presence is enough to revive Akira in the Manga and they go on to form a cult with Tetsuo in charge and Akira as the figurehead.

In doing so, Akira also absorbs Kaneda and the Colonel. The three test subjects sacrifice themselves to save them both. However, not before Kaneda gets a look into the mind of Tetsuo as he is absorbed by Akira. Hence all the flashbacks. As Tetsuo is absorbed, the memories fade into the crazy, pretty patterns that you see, before Kaneda is teleported to safety.

Akira (along with Tetsuo, the test subjects and quite a lot of concrete) disappears into pure energy / another dimension / the psychic domain / whatever you like... possibly never to return.

This leaves Kaneda, Kei, the colonel and anyone else that survived, to pick up the pieces and start anew.

For some reason that story reminds me of The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway...

Oh and why do women love Hetalia so much, because I've noticed that... they go nuts for that anime...
It's funny but... is it as simple as I assume it is?

Also that anime is extremely dark if you...like start thinking about the history of those countries and stuff...

I haven't been watching much animu recently, I've been playing too much Kantai Collection for that... introduced a lady friend to KanColle and Kill La Kill and she loved them both, so she's girlfriend material at least. She also didn't think my Yamato was lame T_T

Speaking of my full weeb power up item, she shipped yesterday and should be here next Wednesday or so.

The twin-sisters dude, the damn girls are hilarious xD I was laughing so hard with the first's presentation. They were already pretty good the first season, but they had almost no screen-time.

The completely crazy way they tell the story... It's so random and amazing I missed it so much.

Fun-fact: totally copied all the names the otaku-couple mentioned and searched for all of them. Swallowtail is a freakin' buttler cafe Totally copying all the names for a visit later this year

This seems like an excellent guide.

Right, I'll be sure not to touch this site even with a washing pole ever again, 'cause I have a feeling if I win a lottery slot and I start playing KanColle my job productivity will be even lower as in "You're fired!" levels

Baccano is pretty awesome. You'll start out with no clue what's going on, since it follows a huge cast of characters across multiple intertwining storylines in four different timeframes, but it's so fun to watch you won't care and things will start to come together soon enough.

That was such a fun series. Very much like an anime adaptation of D&D and i hear that was actually the intention or what was done.

Does anybody have good recommendations for anime?

I didn't complete finish watching 'monster' but i liked what i saw. I have also been liking 'parasyte: the maxim' which can't release enough episodes to satisfy me.

I'm only halfway done with 'monster' and should probably go back to it. Berserk is another good sounding anime but i'd rather have more episodes or a new series (think i heard there was a few movies or a new show coming for it). Honestly berserk seems almost never updated and it seems to be taking forever.

So i dunno possibly a psychological/philosophical mind-f**k of an anime would be good. I hear there's quite a few of those and i never really finished evangelion either. I'd prefer to watch a show with less big robots and pre-teens or harem girls. I like harem girls as they're hot but it's a clear sign the story was put on the back-burner. Though it is a harem 'freezing' seemed messed up but at times needlessly cruel as if people are even sh*ttier than normal (which is a feat i must admit). Gotta admit though 'freezing' knows how to draw attractive women if nothing else.
