People die when they are killed

Continual illnesses and having to prepare for an anime con do a real number on your ability to be productive.

This was an interesting episode because I loathed it on first watch because it was overly melodramatic, but by the end of translating it I was all ;_; because of said melodrama. So yes, this episode goes full 70s melodrama. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Someone really wanted to play with mythological beasts and motifs in this episode. Hydras, salamanders, a weakness caused by a leaf…

Yes, it’s gonna be one of those episodes. Football, the terrible love triange, an attempt to assasinate the main character and some actual background development. I wasn’t expecting the last one either.

TL Note: The Kuroshio Current is a major current that flows off the coast of Japan.

Little Christmas present for you as planned Christmas release (originally April Fools project… yeah it’s called ‘cursed project’ internally for a reason) is delayed until New Year.

And since we had Dragonar as well I decided to release this Boxing Day, as it’s about football (proper footie aka soccer), and Boxing Day always has matches.


Notes for this episode as it makes some geographical references:

Okinawa: Island chain south west of the main Japanese islands

Amami Oshima: Largest island in the Amami chain, which is between Okinawa and the Japanese island of Kyushu

Hanshin: Term used to describe the Kobe-Osaka area.

We felt so guilty about the delay on the last episode that we made sure the next one wouldn’t take as long, shame it’s a fairly generic ‘parents are coming to visit’ episode.

Apologies for the delay, editor was tied up with his own projects.

This was a pretty stupid episode, Mari gets a new voice actress, and apparently a lobotomy to go with it.

Been a while, had a break between other things and figured I could knock out something simple and stupid.

I’m not sure whether to call this episode stupid or not, but it does make fun of how stupid the support robot is, though toy selling demands demand it stay. The angry mother nearly got written as a Northern Matriarch (aka with a Yorkshire accent).
Still not as bad as next episode. That one’s fun…

Will probably have some other stuff out first though.

Don't play with laser pointers kids

Oh look it’s another blindness episode. But a lot less stupid than the last time. Don’t worry, the excess stupidity reappears in a few episodes…

Also be advised there is a lot of that purple flickering old mecha shows used to love.

Apologies for the delay on this, stuff came up.

Anyways, here we have the big exposition episode, with new villains, a plot reveal that really should have occured in an earlier ep because it would have made a wonderful villain speech (I’m still convined episode 27 was badly rushed), and some sections where the colours are about as true to life as most of the Jojo Part 4 anime.

Advance warning, this ep has some sections that are mildly disturbing.

Been a while since we had some of these isn’t it. Since I have found myself with a surfeit of free time, I figured I’d better get back to work on this. Having DVD ISOs and captions are not at all unrelated.

Anyways, decided to do these two episodes together as they are the last Tomino directed episode, and the first episode directed by Nagahama. Episode 28 should follow in a week or two, it smacks you over the head with the exposition bat.

So, what actually happens in these episodes? To avoid spoiling much all I say is villainous schemes, acts of desperation by a certain prince, and a new threat appears.
