Sony's Top 10 Anime of Summer 2014

Surprisingly the top 4 of Sony's list of Top 10 Anime of Summer 2014 are on my watch list. It's been a while since I've posted an anime ranking and it's the first time that the first 4 spots are the shows that I follow. Probably I need to add a few titles that I'll follow weekly since I'm not fully booked yet. Let's see if I can add a few anime shows which I'll blogged on a weekly basis. For the full list you can read on below...

Sword Art Online Season 2 Episode 3

A Slump! This episode is dedicated to Sinon and who she is behind her game character of Gun Gale Online. To be honest, I think it's kinda retarded as she still had a phobia to guns after playing Gun Gale Online which is kinda realistic too, but when faced with a Toy Gun in reality she chickened out and became hysterical.

Aldnoah Zero Episode 3

Third episode and I still haven't seen a special mecha from earth. But I'm impressed that they manage to take the behemoth down despite it's phasing ability. And it's all because of Inaho's calm demeanor and great analytical skills which showed the enemies weak points. To be honest I can't extract any more information as the show itself is pretty much straight forward. The Martians itself, are the ones who plotted to kill the princess and Slaine finally figured it out. In the end he killed the pilot of the kataphrakt with little hesitation.

K: Missing Kings Movie to Open in US Theaters.

Still remember K? didn't like the anime but for some it's one of the best series out there. Haven't seen the trailer yet until today and I think it has that awesome appeal again similar to when it showed it's trailer before. Am I going to watch it? It depends if I receive positive response from the community. So far, I'm tempted too watch the movie as I'm watching the 90-second trailer. The cool thing is that fans from the US can watch the show as announced from Eleven Arts Website.

Zankyou No Terror Episode 2

The Plot is starting to make clear and I think it points to "vengeance" when the police are starting to decrypt the acts of Terror performed by Nine and Twelve. One of the high ranking officials seems to have a clue on who's behind it and why are they doing it and that's where the later episode seems to go to. Nine and Twelve are determined enough to shake the authorities and are not hesitant to leave clues on when the next terror attack will happen.

Tokyo Ghoul Episode 3

At least they're not into killing humans but the ghouls feast on people who kills their own self (suicide). Jason appeared again this time and it looks like he's looking for a substitute to his lost tool in hunting ghouls. I'm still unsure if Jason is a ghoul or not but judging from his strength he's also one of the ghouls that specifically hunts his own kind for his own enjoyment.

Aldnoah Zero Episode 2

I was expecting to see a boy making battle cries but it actually didn't happen. In fact the protagonist stayed cool for the rest of the episode even though one of his friends was sucked by that Overpowered Mecha that is pursuing them at the later part of the show.

Kusen Madoushi Kouhosei No Kyoukan Light Novel to Anime in the Works

Fujimi Shobo announced that Light Novel Kusen Madoushi Kouhosei No Kyoukan is currently being adapted to an anime. The story took place where Earth is currently dominated by armored insects (reminded me of Mushibugyo) and humanity settled in floating cities where they train and empower themselves with magic to fight the insects away.

Zankyou No Terror Episode 1

I was fascinated by the character designs of Zankyou No Terror, not just on how it's well drawn or how it's greatly animated but the overall appeal of the main characters as they play each of their roles. Nine and Twelve had the weirdest chemistry but both work great and they seem to understand each others strength and weaknesses.

Sword Art Online Season 2 Episode 2

I was amused on the opening song of Sword Art Online 2 seeing how Kirito ends up being a girl when he enters GGO some time in the future. Not sure why he chose a female character but what's more surprising about it is the fact that he'll be using a sword again in a gun centric game.

Tokyo Ghoul Episode 2

Keeps getting better after the first episode! This time, Kaneki had revealed a glimpse of his powers from Rize and it is shown how powerful he is despite being a half ghoul. Interesting enough, is to know that coffee is only the human food that remained tasteful after being transformed to a Ghoul. Aside from that the guys from the ending scenes are kinda creepy. I'm not sure if they're Ghoul Hunters but the way they discussed Rize and her pursuer which they named "Jason" suggests that they're indeed Ghoul hunters.
