No. 6 11 [Completed]

Arghblargh, this is the first time I’ve released a No. 6 post on the day the episode aired – in fact, I rushed straight home after school to download the file with only an hour to download it, watch it, and make a post. Thus, instead of waiting for the download to finish before making the post, I’ve made half of the post without even watching the episode, and all my screenshots are going to be scenery because THIS EPISODE, TOO SHOCK and too lazy to edit pictures, sorry. TIME, I HAVE NONE

Without time, I tell EVERY LIE»


The Girls Who Leap Through Spacetime


The Girl Who Leapt Through Space


The Girl Who Leapt Through Time

Expect a post on the latter soon~

In other words, I’m lazy and this thought just popped up into my mind.

Also Fall Chart v2 is released, though not Chartfag;

Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin 13 [Completed]

The finale’s here.


I’M A NA’VI I CONTROL AVATARS AND I’M BLUE AND SHIT

The final episode of Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin starts with a flashback to when Jun’ichiro decided to go away to hiding. Seems that Chihiro actually did die last episode, and her only appearance in the episode preview was this flashback…

Chihiro warps Jun’ichiro to some random place (that he doesn’t even know where it is), where he finds out that the SUN.. has EXPLODED.


The guys behind him are SO SHOCK

Maya plans for the younger Fumiaki to meet the older Fumiaki at the school’s closing ceremony.

Unfortunately, they’ve been informed that a space-time rift in the continuum will happen or something – in which case, as Enzo predicted, Fumiaki was the actual key as opposed to Mikaze.


“You’ll become so jealous of your younger self’s popularity that a spacetime rift will appear!”

Cue complicated scientific speech that’s about as scientific and founded as Maya’s speech about Waldstein’s definition of the occult. I’M TELLIN YA HE ONLY EXISTS IN BEETHOVEN’S SONATAS


Fortunately, the Rum-chan Drum-fisher Rejection doesn’t exist.

Maya and Fumiaki cancel the appointment, much to the fury of Fumiaki’s mom.

Unfortunately, younger Fumiaki has escaped and lies down to sleep right beside the Academy…


Are think you who what what what?

Stupidly enough, Fumiaki is allowed to stay, even at July 21st – y’know, I think I’d rather sacrifice a visit to my mom if I were able to, y’know, SAVE THE WORLD. Unfortunately, possibly because of my earlier thoughts, there /is/ only one timeline involved.

Seems that Fumiaki (and the world) are doomed, as what else would happen with an extension of time till Apocalypse come coupled with the presence of younger Fumiaki in the final episode of an anime?


“Whatever your normal is.” But you still seem to have a cold so TAKE TYLENOL

Anyways, the meddling kids (and Shige) hold a farewell party for Fumiaki – who they still think is called Abe Minoru! :V

…But finally, the final blow comes.

Older Fumiaki meets Younger Fumiaki.


Even the caution sign is sad!

The rift opens.

Ya’d expect the whole world to die now, but somehow, just in the nick of time (as someone predicted waaaaaaay back in an episode one post), Fumiaki regains his spoon-bending powers.

Somehow he bends that one spoon and all of the aliens die.

Don’t believe me?

Nineteen pictures are worth about six of my essays.

World saved but Fumiaki died – which means that the key was destroyed as well. Perhaps it wasn’t him killing the aliens that stopped the apocalypse (cause there has to be more aliens; nuclear bombs can do some damage, y’know), but rather him being killed.

Regardless, the apocalypse is stopped, and with Fumiaki’s final words on her mind, “take care of me” (which would have sounded really strange if you didn’t understand the situation), Maya leads off younger Fumiaki into the future.

Jun’ichiro and his crew emerge from their hideout to find that the world is exactly as it should be in 2012 – without aliens, without destruction. Their den turns into a café, and the real mastermind behind all of this finally starts heading home.

Final Review (y’know, to separate the summary from my actual thoughts :V I would put a picture here usually, but I’m too lazy today)

Clocking in at a massive 4,296 kB is my archive of the first, fully posted anime series of this site to date – all thirteen episodes of Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin is on this here very blog.

First off, that was brilliant. The ending, at least. Perhaps even a masterpiece; I have never seen such a breathtaking ending to any anime as of yet (then again, I’ve finished what three series so far? animenoob.jpg).

HOWEVER, Occult Academy had shite middle episodes. As I said, take this over 6 episodes instead and we have nonstop action and AWESOMENESS. Unfortunately, that would have completely ruined the pacing and surprise; so the only way to make such a fantastic ending would be to make the middle episodes comparably weak.

Well, that sucks.

Secondly; this series is so full of plot holes that the holes take up more space than the actual plot. Which is pretty much impossible because holes don’t take up space – that’s how much plotholes there are.

Seriously, why would you stay at the school if you KNEW that the world might just be ENTIRELY FUCKING DESTROYED that day? Wouldn’t you like, teleport IMMEDIATELY? Why would those people over in the future even LET HIM stay another day? Without confirming younger Fumiaki’s position? History (which Fumiaki somehow changed, even though he’s not a were-hakutaku) should have only one path, and the future guys should know that (seeing as one of them has ‘studied’ Information Science and the ‘something-chan cup-fisher rejection’)!

Let’s move to the positives, shall we? Occult Academy has, first and foremost, absolutely wonderfully amazingly fantastically brilliantly awesome planning. You could tell; they were planning this ending from the very beginning. The pace, the buildup, the sudden realizations and plot twists after plot twists after plot twists…

Unfortunately, that planning somehow didn’t work out. As I said before, I’ll reiterate: the middle episodes SUCKED. Maybe that was part of the plan, but the middle episodes count for half the show.

The finale was brilliant though. Another bonus on the part of planning. The final ‘YEAH MY POWERS ARE BACK’ was just phenomenal. Seriously, if you haven’t watched it, at least watch (the latter half of) this episode. Those final animations had just so much grandiose, so much power, so much… BRILLIANCE, right now I CAN’T EVEN CRY tears of awesomeness because I’M NOT WORTHY of seeing such AWESOME stuff.

…However, the explanations were quite confusing, and… well, there really aren’t any explanations, are there?

Thankfully, here, Divine suggests something I’d not even dare to think – “The only way one could fathom this working out is if the future happened before the past…”

…Divine then says something derogatory after that but I won’t quote that!

Anyways, hey, why not? What if there were actually three possible futures?

There was that one movie – Déjà Vu – with multiple timelines that could explain this near-perfectly (watch the movie (it’s a good one)/read wikipedia to understand the picture).

Anyways, hate to cut this short but I wanna get this published. As I said, this would’ve been much better if the middle parts were, but… they weren’t.

Amazing’s good enough, ain’t it? :P

Overall Rating: 6/10 (Amazing)

Oh, also, it’s not December 2012 yet, it’s July 2012… :P

OCCULT ACADEMY TWENTY TWELVE: The Mayan Prophecies


Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin 12


Premiers September 27th, 2010: EXPLODING SUN: The movie.
“The Sun… has exploded.”

You guys can do better than that! Submit your own generic movie titles/puns and I’ll realize that nobody’s gonna do that and cry in my little corner there.

Anyways, the penultimate episode of Occult Academy (YES, I’M NOT LATE ANYMORE AFTER THIS ONE!!!) starts off as spectacularly and awesomely as the one before ended.


Hey hey hey! I think there’s a pattern in th-…oh.

I’ll sum this up briefly so that you’ll have to watch it to fully appreciate its awesomeness. SO GO FUCKING WATCH IT NOW IF YA HAVEN’T YET

Chihiro and Mikaze battle, and eventually, Mikaze wins. Mikaze then chases Maya, who’s riding (not in… that way) on the principal’s bodyguard who has turned into a flying panther with wings.


(tune: Happy Birthday) I’M A BIR~RTHDAY CAKE! I’M A BIR~RTHDAY CAKE! I’M A BIR~RTHDAY CA~KE! I’M A BIR~RTHDAY CAKE!

The meddling kids realize that the town’s inhabitants are under Mikaze’s control, so they drive off with Shige (Ami’s dad) towards… somewhere.


(tune: Spiderman) SPIDERWOMEN, SPIDERWOMEN, CRAWL ON THE GROUND LIKE SPIDERS CRAWL. CAUSE THEY DON’T, CAUSE THEY DON’T, SWING THROUGH THE AIR, ALL AROUND. TOU-HOU… HAS FAT SPIDERWOMEN.

Eventually the landlords start chasing them, but pause to do some push-ups on the way.


…But we’re PUSHING UP

With the last of her energy, Chihiro frees Fumiaki and tells him that the principal’s still alive (using the same fake-death spell she used on Maya). Fumiaki runs towards the Academy just in time to stop Mikaze from killing Maya.

Finally, he and Maya recite a spell that disintegrates every demon in the city, including Chihiro, her bodyguard, and most importantly, Mikaze (who was the key of Nostradamus).

With both Chihiro and Mikaze gone, Fumiaki can only hug Maya now, so he does.

Unfortunately, in the future, the only change that’s happened is the scenery – the world’s still destroyed.

…Well, what can I say.

Wow.

That was an amazing episode.

First off, some outlinks.

Kyokai wrote “The second possibility is a little more complex and is centered on “The Split Universe Theory”, given by Schrodinger [sic]. That is whenever an event has equal probabilities of occurring or not occurring, the universe splits into two and that is how in one world the rift would occur, while in the other one (where Fumiaki really is), the rift would not occur and no invasion of aliens. Still the question remains of the traveler’s fate of what would happen to him because there are many theories to define not only time travel but travel between parallel universes created due to possibilities.”

Which brings to question: What’s really going to happen in the future? Why was it destroyed like that instead? Unfortunately, I am a strict believer of the first possibility (that everything is predetermined for us – Fumiaki won’t get ‘stopped’ from changing the future, but in the process of changing the future he actually changes it to what it is; so if he hadn’t been there, the future would’ve been peaceful, but he HAS to go back in time because it’s been predetermined for him), so I was quite… mentally broken down when I realized this was not going to happen.

I’m pretty sure he’s not going to sidestep between parallel universes; so in a sense, if the next universe really is different, he stays in the next universe and doesn’t go to the other. Er… to illustrate, here’s a fancy, complicated, graph to show what I mean…

Blue is Fumiaki, Red is Maya, Yellow is when Mikaze dies.

Which means that Maya will never go actually to Universe 1 – she’ll never see apocalypse. Fumiaki won’t be able to go back either.

But, then, you’d think that because there would be no apocalypse, the people in the future won’t send Fumiaki back – in which case we realize something – for some reason, while time flows in 1999, time flows in 2012 as well. The 2012 people realize that it’s getting ‘closer to July 21st’ in 1999, even though the timeflows are completely separate.

Which actually means – the 2012 people are in Universe One, and the 1999 people are actually in Universe TWO. By killing Mikaze, the Universe Two people have went to Universe One, and Universe One people have went to Universe Two. That means that in the future, there will STILL BE APOCALYPSE for Maya, but not Fumiaki if he sidesteps back to Universe Two.

But wait again – in the future, it seems that it’s destroyed anyways. By aliens? By humans? It seems to me that because the aliens didn’t kill off most of the human race, some sort of Epic War happened, though probably of the more conventional (so, not nuclear) variety.

Here, GuardianEnzo gives a possible reason: “…it was Fumiaki, not Mikaze, who was the Key.”

That means if they kill Fumiaki, the Universe Two people go to Universe Three, and the Universe One people… ALSO go to Universe Three. There, hopefully, there will be no apocalypse, but who knows…

…If that was too confusing, it’s alright; I went completely out of my mind there, and my theories have no scientific or any other basis. Jumping universes is IM-PAU-SAY-BOWL.

So to get more back to Earth; I still find no reason why the meddling kids were there. Boiled down to it, all they did at the end was provide transportation for Fumiaki to get to the school. I really thought there’d be some other purpose to them, that they could do something heroic and be a crucial part of saving the world; but turns out, all they are, are a bunch of meddling kids.

Though I also really hope we get some JK backstory on the next episode; it’s an impossibility, just like everyone else whose two-letter’d name ends with a K, but we can hope, right?

Finally, I really hope (again) that this ends on a strong note. Not on some “Hey, it’s ended, let’s hold a mock graduation ceremony and tell the audience that it’s just another day in Ikebukuro and nothing’s changed” crap, on something big like “HEY GUYS WE’VE FUCKING SAVED THE FUCKING WORLD”.

…Occult Academy started strong, and now the day of judgement is near – will it end as strongly as it started?


EXPLODING SUN 2: The sequel.
“The Sun… has exploded. Again.”


Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin 11


Come over here, Bunmei…

…What just happened.

My mind’s like dead right now.

I can’t describe this episode better than Hanners did: “…to put it bluntly, batshit crazy.”


WE HAVE COME TO KILL YOU

Mikaze seduces Fumiaki and tells him that they have to kill Maya.


Well, at least it’s better than that GODDAMNED FUCKING WASABI FLAVOURED GELATO GODDAMMIT GELATO SELLER I WANT MY TASTE BUDS BACK

Maya, unaware of this, goes all deredere and buys a ton of random crap for Fumiaki to partake in the consumption thereof.


(to the tune of Row, Row, Row)I, I, I-I have, a shoe growing out of my back. Painful, painful, painful, painful, feels like a giant sack. Why, why, why-y, is there a shoe on my back? Be~cause, be~cause, humility I lack.

Eventually, Fumiaki reveals that the whole town’s after her head; but refusing to let her photograph herself for fear she’d commit suicide.


INCEPTION: THE DREAM IS A FUCKING UPSIDE-DOWN SUN, OK?

Cut to the ‘present’, and… wait, what? Maya’s dad is the ringleader of the future group. The control team’s somehow lost contact with Fumiaki, and July 21st is drawing near…


Who said I can’t reuse images? :V

…And wait holy shit. Maya’s dead. Like, actually dead. Each of these events could have taken an entire episode to explore, Occult Academy style – but I guess, Occult Academy’s just excellent at extremes.


…I-I-I… c-can’t t-take it e-e-e-EAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASYYYYYYYYYYYYYY ;w;

This pace was just phenomenally fast; then again, it probably would’ve been impossible to put these in separate episodes and still have that shock factor.


pls to be meet you I am Mima good girls

…And then suddenly WHAAAAAAAAAT?! Maya’s alive, and… Kawashima (who after checking MAL, her first name’s Chihiro, and Ami’s dad is actually called Shige)’s a WHITE MAGE sent to PROTECT MAYA after her father ‘died’ (which he probably hasn’t, cause he’s alive in the future). Maya’s body was a fake created by magic.


FALCON PUSH

To verify that Maya’s actually Maya, Fumiaki takes the book that they got in episode two or three (through that brick-wall crack).
THEN SUDDENLY WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?!?!?! Mikaze’s a BLACK WITCH sent from HELL to fulfill NOSTRADAMUS’S PROPHECY. She steals the book, burns it, completely paralyzes Fumiaki, and informs them that the book was a talisman protecting Maya from harm.


Don’t mind us, we’re just your VERY VERY AVERAGE REGULAR townspeople who don’t have eyes, can’t see that Mikaze’s FLOATING ON A FUCKING BROOM WHILE SHOOTING SPELLS AT RANDOM PEOPLE, and walk faster than Maya runs. VERY REGULAR AND AVERAGE YES YES YES DON’T BE HATIN’

Mikaze reveals that she ‘killed’ Jun’ichiro (if so, she did a horrible job of it :P), and chases them around town, along with various town members who thinks that MAYA’s actually the one who’s gonna open the gates of hell. Cornered, Chihiro decides to fend off the pursuers while the bodyguard leaves with Maya, complete with a Sailor Moon-esque full-body transformation.


Black Mage, White Mage, Attack Mage, Fight Mage.

…Yeah.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go down to the EYEWASH STATION to wash all of this AWESOMENESS out of my eyes.

…OH WAIT I DON’T HAVE AN EYEWASH STATION IN MY HOUSE I GUESS I’LL HAVE TO CRY TEARS OF AWESOMENESS ;-;

That was seriously amazing. Occult Academy started with a bang, middle’d with some rather uninteresting segments, and hopefully it’ll end with a bang now.

Y’know, it might have been better if Occult Academy was only 6 episodes long. They obviously planned out this twist from the very start; and the beginning episodes were strong, as well. Cut out the stupid middle episodes about dead cows. Have the beginning, have the end. Boom, there you go: one brilliant show from beginning to end.

But noooooooo. What we get is one brilliant show in beginning and end, and just a good one in between.

Then again, we have to think about what Occult Academy is aiming for. Is it aiming to be a clusterfuck of random occult things? Is it aiming to be an actual good show? I think it’s just aiming to throw random occult stuff straight up at our faces, with a mildly mediocre plot along the way. Of course, that’s just referencing the one-episode occult occurrence; the actual plot, as a whole, was decidedly mind-blowing.

I am definitely looking forward to watching the next episode. Actually, wait; I’m watching it now. ONE MORE EPISODE TILL I’M NOT LATE ANYMORE YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH

A BIRD ON A MONKEY EATING A BANANA ON TOP OF A TREE THAT HAS PINECONES GROWING OUT OF BANANAS GROWING OUT OF PINEAPPLES ON THE GROUND THAT HAVE GROWN ON TOP OF BANANA PINECONES ON THE TREE WHILE A MONKEY GROWS THROUGH A BIRD INTO A TREE AND HITS AN APPLE PINEAPPLE PINECONE BANANA IN THE HEAD?!?!?! WITH A MONKEY-EATING BANANA?!!!!!?

This week’s (well, last last last week’s) episode begins with A BIRD ON A MONKEY EATING A BANANA ON TOP OF A TREE THAT HAS PINECONES GROWING OUT OF BANANAS GROWING OUT OF PINEAPPLES ON THE GROUND THAT HAVE GROWN ON TOP OF BANANA PINECONES ON THE TREE WHILE A MONKEY GROWS THROUGH A BIRD INTO A TREE AND HITS AN APPLE PINEAPPLE PINECONE BANANA IN THE HEAD WITH A MONKEY-EATING BANANA.


If you know what I mean…

…Well, it might not. Anyways, Fumiaki does stupid stuff.


Ringo: “I’ve caught it all on tape.”

Maya gets mad, Kawashima gets disappoint.


Son, I am THIS THE POINT.

The other people decide to have a CHRISTMAS PARTY in the middle of summer.


UNLIMITED STAR FORKS

The evil dad reveals that Akari died ’cause of Santa.


IT’S DEAD! Wait, that’s not much of an achievement :/

Then somehow Akari FLOATS INTO A GIANT FLOATING WHIRLPOOL BECAUSE ALL PEOPLE COME FROM GIANT FLOATING WHIRLPOOLS


…For killing me. WAIT NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

THE END.

Hurrrrrr. Didn’t solve anything at all, why do giant floating whirlpools always appear out of people’s ceilings goddammit, Fumiaki seems like the leader of a harenimu now (useless lucky idiot), Akari’s dad is evil, POLAR BEARS DO NOT MOTHERFUCKING EXIST, and JK actually wears sunglasses that you can’t see.

Have I missed anything?

Oh yeah, Ami also cuts Maya in half.

Next time, she’s gonna die!

Whaddya mean her body’s still in one piece? Whaddya mean she died at her desk? Whaddya mean Ami didn’t kill her? YA MUST BE TAKING SOME STRANGE BIRDS ON A MONKEY EATING A BANANA ON TOP OF A TREE THAT HAS PINECONES GROWING OUT OF BANANAS GROWING OUT OF PINEAPPLES ON THE GROUND THAT HAVE GROWN ON TOP OF BANANA PINECONES ON THE TREE WHILE A MONKEY GROWS THROUGH A BIRD INTO A TREE AND HITS AN APPLE PINEAPPLE PINECONE BANANA IN THE HEAD WITH A MONKEY-EATING BANANA.


Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin 9


So. Much. Enthusiasm.

Anyways, this is the second edition of Mushy’s ‘let’s-spam-you-all-with-an-anime-nobody-cares-about’ post! SHOW SOME ENTHUSIASM, PEOPLE!

On a related note, the anime club I’m at has just started watching Ookami-san. Episode one. And NOBODY has watched it before. Arggggggggggggggggggggh stuck with bunch of newfags whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

Thankfully I raegquit before Ryoushi even shot the stone at that delinquent-stalker guy to the Piano Club which is that much cooler – cause we get to SMASH pianos. With sledgehammers.

:/

(Though I do hope nobody from my school (besides houraiguy) is reading this ._.)


Your FACE

This episode starts off with Maya being incredibly unenthusiastic.


What. You’re selling INSTANT WEIGHT LOSS PILLS for $2 each? We’re interested.

And it ends with her being more enthusiastic and feeling better about her personal health.

Kawashima decides to summon a GHOST. Kozue, because she LOVES MAYA’S DAD SO MUCH asks her to summon him.

Unfortunately it fails, and instead, an EVIL GHOST GIRL APPEARS. She EVILLY latches onto Smile’s back, sucking away hitpoints EVERY SECOND!


Pew pew pew! Space inv-lazors.

Her name’s Akari, but JK BRAVELY DEFENDS AGAINST THIS MENACE TO OUR SAFETY BECAUSE HE KNOWS THAT UNDER THAT MASK AKARI IS ACTUALLY A GHOST GIRL.


Fumiaki: That girl looks hot. Maya: That girl looks hot.

Anyways, Fumiaki goes off with Mikaze to become stupid, and Maya goes off with the other main characters to become stupid as well because nobody’s caring about the key that’ll end the world. Maaaaaaan they’re lazy.

They decide that to KILL EVIL AKARI they must FIND HER HOUSE which is next to HER SCHOOL.

But this is so difficult and so surprising that even JK, master of finding things, gets stumped.


n. Facepaint. ‘The JK facepainted himself after he realized that he couldn’t find his glasses.’ ‘The narrator facepaints herself because she realized JK doesn’t wear glasses.’ ‘Fumiaki is soon going to facepaint himself when he finds out that there is no narrator.’ Related words: Face-plant.

Anyways somehow they find her house.

THEN SUDDENLY AKARI TURNS INTO A GHOST GIRL OH MY GOD HOW SCARY

IT’S SO SCARY EVEN KOZUE’S SCARED


“…FUMIAKI? WHY DIDN’T YOU TELL ME YOU WERE A GIRL?!?! :<

It’s revealed that AKARI IS A GHOST GIRL

Wait, what? What do you mean you knew that from the very beginning? Occult Academy gives too much foreshadowing, gosh :V

Akari DIED and now because saving the world is unimportant they have to make sure that she goes to the afterlife instead of lurking around in chatrooms all day.


“…It seems that Akari has been taking… DUGS. She also drinks DEER, even though she’s under the legal RAGE.

Woaaaaaaah is this going to be a TWO-EPISODE AC?! WOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH AMAZING! That also means we have three more episodes after this arc to find the Nostradamus’s Key, destroy it, reveal more about Mikaze and why the hell she’s Still Alive, reveal more about Kawashima and why it’s so easy for me to spell her name as Kawashiro, and finally we need at least one episode completely devoted to product placement shots.

I think they should’ve just started the Nostradamus part at the beginning!

In all seriousness though, I think they should’ve just started the Nostradamus part at the beginning. Akari is /completely/ useless. She’s not even Yuki-Onna There’s no point in adding her all of a sudden. Just as there was no point to that evil creature that got killed by Jun’ichiro’s spellbook (which they have never even used, and I’ll bet most of ya have completely forgotten about), the mothmen, Kozue having the NDE, the chupacabras, and… well, basically everything else!

Seriously, Occult Academy. Step up your game. If you suddenly turn all plotwise at the end… oh, you have no idea how much I will rage. If you don’t… I’ll still rage, just as hard.

Though looking at it from a closer point of view, this is actually quite nice. There’s segments each on almost separate things, all to do with the occult. It really is, an occult academy.

I DON’T LIKE THIS OCCULT ACADEMY GIVE ME PLOT ALREADY DAMMIT. Maybe they did this just because tl;dw/Shiki was running this season. WELL SORRY TO TELL YA BUT SHIKI’S ON HIATUS SO THAT MEANS YOU’LL NEED A BIT MORE PLOT TO TAKE ITS PLACE

…Actually, when I think about it, at the time episode 9 was made, Shiki wasn’t. OH WELL, IT WILL BE, SO GIVE ME PLOT OR I WILL RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAEG


Going once, going twice, fetus in a jar!


Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin 8


Head and shoulders, knees and nose, sneeze and hose, freeze and hold… you’re arrested.

…Alright. As I mentioned before, for higher quality, we’re (I’m) only using… non-streamed anime that may or may not have been acquired through legal means, depending on the place of your residency… for anime pictures. Also, each is now 700 x 400 in size.

Yeah, unfortunately I can’t find out how to… view subtitles, so I have to live with making this post without any idea of what’s going on. At least I watched it already, a month ago.

OH WELL

Anyways, continuing from the last post, exactly a month ago (and since then, I haven’t watched, like, any anime)…

…Well, there is no continuation because I didn’t post the plot then!


Eyes, ears, mouth and nose… but I DON’T HAVE EYES WHY ARTIST WHY DIDN’T YOU GIVE ME EYES

Anyways, funny thing is that the anime club at my school is still at episode one (I didn’t even attend their ‘meeting’ :V). Seems I’m not the latest in the aniblogosphere…

My goal is to catch up to Occult Academy to post the final episode on Tuesday. That’s right; a post a day, folks!


Fumiaki: …W-wh-what… is it..?!
Maya: It seems to be…
*sunglasses*
…a DEAD COW.

Anyways, to catch up on events so far; Fumiaki/Maya went into the crop field because they thought there was an alien invasion or something. Unfortunately, it seemed to just be JK/Smile/Ami’s Dad planning something to make Ami/Maya grow less emo. Obviously this makes both of them more emo, and so they slap each other cause that’s like so trendy and all that.

So basically right now Ami/Maya hate each other.

They decide to meet up at a shrine and have a FIGHT TO THE DEATH.

HOWEVER, THE HEROIC AND VERY VERY MANLY KOZUE SAVES THEM FROM A CERTAIN DOOM BY PUTTING HER LIFE ON THE LINES FOR HER FRIENDS.


Look at that face! Clearly the face of someone rescued from their cruel fate by a heroic friend.

Wait, what do you mean that was just the shrine where they always visited to make up with each other? Clearly they were going to beat each other to death with sticks!


I’m Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin and I do not approve of this message.

Oh, whoops, tiny chupacabras have bitten Kozue, kidnapped Ami, and done nothing to Maya cause she’s TOO MOTHERFUCKING AWESOME.

Maya/Kozue go to Smile/JK/Ami’s Dad because we need more smilies and j/ks in this post. UNFORTUNATELY YA DON’T GET ANY HAR HAR HAR


We’re really sorry that Ami died… but honestly, we couldn’t care less!

Along the way, they crash into three vending machines suspiciously placed along the highway, probably for, ya know, in case a secondary character who is bound ta die in ta next episode or two can go outside after a quarrel with ta main character and another secondary character who must die pretty soon too and buy a drink but find that a 100-yen coin fell underneath ta vending machine and he can’t move ta vending machine and his arm’s not skinny/long enough ta reach it so that the main antagonist can kill the secondary character who must die pretty soon too.


Japan and America – the only two places in the world where there’s a vending machine in the middle of both nowhere and everywhere.

They also forcibly abduct persuade using gentlemanly means Fumiaki to come along.

Ami has 9/10 HP!

Final Turn

Oh wait, the Giant Chupacabra’s dead. Oh, it seems that headshots don’t actually take away less damage the more defence you had! I never knew that! RPG’s were all lying to me…

The end.

Oh, and Kawashima and her nameless bodyguard are watching from afar as they set fire to the building to erase all evidence of the chupacabras.


Woulda made more canonical sense if it was an earthquake though…


I’M ON UR HILL SETTIN FIRE TO YA SHRINES

Hurrrr, stinkin plot advancement… imminent?

Really, when you look at it nothing happened in this episode. It’s sorta strange to me why only the Occult Academy experiences these occult experiences, and nobody else has ever done so before when they’re experiencing these so often. Then again, that’ll probably be explained by Kawashima (who might just be the final ringleader in this anime…).

On the subject of Kawashima, it seems that the piece that plays every time she writes her interesting… poems about Fumiaki is Liszt’s La campanella, from the Grandes études de Paganini. Found it while browsing through his Transcendental Etudes one day out of boredom, and believe me, it is very, very hard to play (that’s why it’s transcendental).

As Vivi said from Sekijitsu, ‘You think getting bit with teeth that long, your skin would be left little worse off than a few holes, or your bones pierced through, or the holes to be long enough to go through your whole body. I bet a lot of you are wondering why Naruse isn’t dead yet.’ The whole thing’s just stupid. The chupacabras are obviously underbalanced and way too easy for a party of their level. They didn’t even land a single hit even though I didn’t bother to add an avoid stat there were quite a lot of them. Enough for 99 rounds of mindless fighting.

The boss was obviously stupidly strong, and yet Ami’s Dad just shot him with a nail gun and he died outright. Some of ya would be furious at this anticlimatic ending, but I loved it – here’s reality, ya generally don’t survive after getting shot in the head. Or the chest. Or generally any part of your body. And ya definitely can’t continue to move and shoot other people, no matter where ya’ve been shot – even the pain would probably be unbearable.

YA RTSs ARE LYING TO ME

I’d say that Touhou wasn’t cause one shot = death, but the bosses have some insanely high VIT stats.

Back to the first paragraph – nothing really happened at all. They could’ve just had Ami and Maya getting over their argument at the shrine and start the next episode early, and it would’ve had the same result (but better, cause there’d be more content) as Ami and Maya about to get over their argument but suddenly CHUPACABRAS

Then again, this is another Ookami-san-esque anime. There’s really no plot (advancement) AFAIK, everything focuses episode-by-episode or a chain of episodes, and things just leap from one thing to another. I guess that’s an attempt to emulate life – because really, who follows a long-term goal every single day and always has something related to that goal to talk about? Oh wait, let me think, just about every other anime character out there?

Yeah, this is divergent, and I wouldn’t say I like it, but I’m sure many others do. Nevertheless, I started watching Occult Academy expecting a well-developed, streamlined mystery/occult story, and get… this.

I won’t say I’m displeased either, that’s for sure.

Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin 7


That’s either poisonous water or a genie. Drinking poisonous water is bad, drinking a genie is…

Anyways, this episode begins when AMI’s dad, ‘NAME UNKNOWN HAR HAR HAR HAR HAR OR I HAVE A HORRIBLE MEMORY AND SLASH OR ATTENTION SPAN’, demonstrates his SUPERIOR MUSCLE POWAS and random crap.

Actually, ya know what, I’m not going ta going through my usual anipost procedure of ‘write random crap and tell ta truth later’, or even ‘write about everything that happens’. I’ll just write down ta important events.

So, as ya know, this episode has poisoned water…


Philosophical comments on life…


Prodigious ricetriangles…


Pudding…


Puppy dog eyes…


Puking…

And chickens wait why isn’t this italicized


Pickup trucks…


Passing out from too much beer…

Actually that was only one glass of beer but as ya know, Fumiaki’s useless.


Phantasmagoria of Flying Vehicles….


Probably a moé flashback…

(OK, I admit that was horrible, but what else could I have Put?)

And finally, a…


Picture of JKs…

wait what

This episode was BRILLIANT. Like amazing brilliant. Ta creepy style completely pulled me into ta plot, thinking they were real aliens – though I had suspicions about it being too fast, considering ta previous episodes’ nothing-ta-do-with-aliens attitudes. Ta style, scenes, actions, were all done so exceptionally that I actually thought they were going ta find Nostradamus’s Key.

Not so, for something like an alien ta signal ta end is just way too unbelievable. Looking at ta episode again (and reading several blogs), there were several foreshadowing moments – mud on JK/Smile’s shoes while at ta curry shop, JK puking pretty pitiful pudding after hearing ta news broadcast, JK/Smile talking ta Ami’s father, etc. Just adds to ta awesomeness that I didn’t realize any of these were foreshadowing until I relooked at them…

And even after ta pretty comedic scene, as some people have said ta resulting emotions weren’t comedy, or what’d ya expect. From most anime, people’d laugh this off, but Occult Academy portrayed ta emotions much more complicatedly – if ya were Maya, about ta save ta /entire freaking world/ from an alien invasion, and it was all revealed as a joke, what would ya do? Ami’s reactions were interesting too, and ta be honest I didn’t expect anything from JK’s revelation afterwards.

Definitely, hands down, best episode of Occult Academy so far. Hope ta next one doesn’t disappoint, either (and advances ta stinkin plot already)…


And of course… dead cows.

wait what


Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin 6

Kozue can now see PERFECTLY but she lost everything about ta occult, which makes her STUPID STUPID STUPID STUPID

So, Maya and Ami try ta “RESCUE” her by giving her OCCULT EXPERIENCES AND STUFF.

With everything they tried a failure, Maya only has one option left…


Make Ami into a ghost butterfly

Make Fumiaki do random magic crap.

OBVIOUSLY HE RANDOM MAGICALLY FAILS

But in ta process, Maya and Kozue agree that ta occult is a bunch of lies and stuff. Kozue suddenly begins ta cry, and Maya realizes that SHE LEFT HER HEART BACK IN TA NEAR-SHOEMAKER DEATH MACHINE.

SO THEY MUST RETRIEVE HER HEART


This concept is so stupid ta even Kawashima is face/bookpalming

When Maya, Ami, JK, and Smile go ta activate ta machine, FUMIAKI COMES AND STOPS THEM

HE STOPS THEM ALL

AND THEN HE GOES TO SAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAVE KOZUE

As opposed ta Kozue’s “WHEEEEE I’M FLOATING IN RAINBOWS AND FLUFFY SHIZ”, Fumiaki’s life FLASHES before him.

His mom was liek really mean and didn’t let him see meteor showers and stuff

And then one day

SHE SLAPPED HIM

SO HE SAD


I meant “sTapped”, which means “staBBed”

THEN HE SAVES KOZUE JUST BEFORE EVIL ALIENS FROM HIS SUBCONSCIOUS KILL THEM ALL

Wait this isn’t inception

INCEPTION IS BLOODY AWESOME


Stupid answer: “This is ta future…” Smart answer: “…Yes. Yes, yes he is.”

Anyways ta ending is revealed when Kozue’s heart wasn’t broken or anything – she just couldn’t see anything cause her glasses were on her head.

Cue shock.


Cue ED.

I liked this episode, but seriously, the plot needs ta move.

Ya’ve got 7 episodes left. MOVE TA PLOT. PLEASE.

The end.


Why is there an unedited picture of someone who appeared for all of 10 seconds in ta anime? BECAUSE JK IS AWESOME. AND JK SOUNDS LIKE TK. SO HE’S EVEN AWESOMER.


Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin 5


THAT’S A VERY NICE FACE YOU HAVE THERE

The episode starts with Maya having Fumiaki’s phone CAUSE SHE’S A THIEF but she doesn’t have orange hair and can’t control the weather :<

Then Kozue has a spoon and she SPOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONS everyone, until Maya reveals it's JUST. A. SPOON.

Kozue is now unhappy.

Fumiaki calls on Maya to answer a question but Maya goes all AGNRY FAIC on him

Fumiaki is now unhappy.

So he calls on Ami instead.

Ami is now unhappy.

Kozue comes in with a picture of her doing some strange dance with SPIRITS floating around.


NO, THEY’RE RAINBOW-Y SO THEY’RE RAINSPHEREBOWS OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT

But Maya points out that she’s a mummy.

Kozue is now doubleunhappy.


I’m pretty sure /you’re/ the big problem.

I noticed that trying to emphasis something by italicizing it with forward-slashes doesn’t work when it’s already italicized. I’m always sad so no change happens.

Anyways she’s a mummy because she was trying to chase a cat to find out whether it gave BAD LUCK or not.

But then she falls down a cliff.

So Kozue is now doubleplusunhappy.


Hope you enjoyed Summer; have a nice Fall~

SO SHE COMMITS SUICIDE

THE

END

Anyways some professor comes in and then there’s an earthquake. Kozue’s dead

And then something would have happened if Kozue was here, but Kozue’s dead

And then Kozue would have taken some snake from somewhere and eaten it whole but Kozue’s dead


Actually it’s KING TSUCHINOKO

Fumiaki gets his LUNCH from Chihiro (the vice-principal; thank god MAL exists or I would’ve confused this even further. On an off-topic note, did you know Occult Academy’s rated 17+? On another note, Beethoven has a MAL page, cause he’s so trendy and all that) but he obviously HATES Chihiro so he THROWS IT ALL AWAY

He talks to Mikaze who tells him that she wants to sell bread at the school but THAT’S IMPOSSIBLE so yeah.

Chihiro watches and becomes unhappy.

But her AWESOME unnamed-bodyguard tells her to do what everyone should do when they feel unhappy…

Maya and Ami talk about stuff at the school roof, and Kozue would have too if she was alive but Kozue’s dead

Ami/would-have-been-Kozue but she’s dead reveals that Kozue is the only person in the school who hasn’t had a single occult experience, making her superdoubleplusunhappy. BUT SHE CAN’T BE ANY MORE SUPERDOUBLEPLUSUNHAPPY BECAUSE Kozue’s dead


IN SOVIET RUSSIA A PUSHMI-PULLYU PULLS ME AND PUSHES YOU

Maya gets a call from the future and Ami would have gotten a call from Kozue but Kozue’s dead

Fumiaki gets a call from the future and Ami’s not here so I can’t do anything repetitive.

Then they all go down to somewhere and would have found Kozue and maybe even seen her doing something like this but Kozue’s dead

No, I'm the student council president. HAND SONIC

Fumiaki goes to ask Maya for permission to let Mikaze sell bread in the school.

Maya does random kuudere for a while and then lets him by stamping the seal on his forehead.

Well, obviously Fumiaki now has to get the stamp on paper.


Spider-man, spider-man, does whatever a spider can. Stamps paper, any size, is as stupid, as a fly. Look out! Kozue’s dead.

Kozue, if she was alive, would have volunteered to become frozen because people who have been lost in the snow and had their pulse reach zero have been revived in the past. Kozue’s dead

Basically she goes all druggy in the afterlife, because Kozue’s dead

The episode ends with Kozue forgetting all about her addiction to the occult, and being able to see without her glasses.

Another Kozue’s still in the afterlife, searching for her glasses.

Why?

Kozue’s dead


But women don’t :<

This episode was REALLY filler-ish. The only reason I had to type so many things and upload so many pictures is that nothing really connected; there wasn’t a main plot. I could sum this up (with all the plot-related events) as: “Kozue may or may not be dead” with one picture of Kozue searching for her glasses in the “afterlife”.

Nothing important happened at all. I don’t get why they made this episode, if not just to give more “depth” to Kozue. Honestly you could wrap /her/ all up with “She likes the occult, hasn’t experienced anything occult, and is extremely myopic”.

TBH, I didn’t really like it… If they have time to make episodes like this, wouldn’t it be better to cut the episode completely and save some money? Or cut the episode to make a better episode to extend the plot? There’s only one anime that makes money through fillers and that’s Naruto. To some extent Bleach but Bleach in itself is just one giant filler.

There’s nothing more to say on this episode. Besides the fact that the characters’ enormous facial repertoire increased by even more.


Which one’s the best face of the episode?


Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin 4


Welcome to HAKUREI REITAI FESTIVAL

So KOZUE and MAYA are dead/missing so Fumiaki (or is it Bunmei? I’ll stay with Fumiaki) and Mikaze CHASE THEM IN A CAAAAAAAAAR

They go into a TOMB/SHRINE/ROCK/UNDERGROUND TUNNEL/GUILD/place and find out that there is ROCK there and if you PUSH the ROCK the ROCK gets PUSHED.

At the same time, Smile/JK also search for Maya with their new, improved SMILEGLASSES~!

These SMILEGLASSES were bought from the SMILEGLASSES STORE for an EXTREMELY LOW PRICE! Not only that, but they are EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE and liable to MAKE YOU SMILE. If you don’t smile, then mail back this product and we’ll MAKE YOU SMILE 100% GUARANTEED!

Batteries not included. Because you don’t need them.

Anyways, Fumiaki gets pwnt by himself.


WHICH WAY IS HIS FACE ROTATING? We may never know.

Anyways he runs away from Mikaze ’cause he’s scared and runs into Maya. Delving deeper into the tunnel/guild/thingy, they find…

THE WORLD TREE.

IT IS THE GREATEST TREE EVER, THE LARGEST AND MOST INDESTRUCTABLE TREE THAT HOLDS THE VERY FABRICS OF SPACETIME TOGETH-

…How anticlimatic.

Anyways he falls down into a pile of shit.

Yeah.


How much curry DID you eat?! Gosh…

Inside the pile of shit he finds #5’s cellphone – meaning the excreter-of-vulgar-interesting-language monster ate #5 and shat out his cellphone.

:/

The excreter-of-vulgar-interesting-language monster (henceforth known as the “EVIL monster”) chases Maya and Fumiaki, and they run away. Fumiaki reveals that all this time, he was just an INDIAN PENNY-EATER.


Reimu: “Please? I need money to build my shrine!”

Meaning at the end, he’s just rather sad, and force

Anyways, an ANGRY SWARM OF BEES attack, and Fumiaki RUNS AWAY. Then he goes and hugs a tree.

Maya finds that Kozue’s inside some bee-cocoon or something, and is about to DIE – WHEN SMILE ARRIVES AND PWNS EVERYONE WITH A GIANT WRENCH. Then JK goes and PWNS everyone with LITTLE METAL STICKS ABOUT THE LENGTH OF HIS THUMB.

Finally, JK gets an ACCORDIAN-BAGPIPE-KEYBOARD-GUITAR and creates a resonance frequency too much for the bugs to handle. THE BUGS DIE IN A CAVE SOMEWHAT NEAR THE COAST OF JAPAN.


YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

They run out and the episode ends (well, it obviously doesn’t but GUESS WHAT? I’M LAZY. And please don’t say “you aren’t lazy”)

I must point out one thing first.

IT IS FREAKING HARD TO ADD TEXT IN PAINT WHEN YOU CAN’T USE THE TEXT TOOL. MORE LIKE MSPAIN :< AND COPYPASTING? THAT'S IMPOSSIBLE. I wish I could use photoshop but I'm too lazy to :<

Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin 3

[Announcement: Oh yeah; SWOT 0 was a oneshot, so I’ve updated that with a score now]

WE'rE iN spACEeeEEEEEeEEee~! (Part 2)

The episode begins with some random girl getting PWNT by something.

KOZUE theorizes that AYA is spamming BULLET HELL (literally) and decides that she…

...doesn't want Pinocchio as a teacher

…will catch the EVIL newspaper reporter with a BUTTERFLY NET

Maya then talks to Fumiaki about how catching the Tengu may lead to Nostradamus’s key.

Kawashima notices that Fumiaki is spending too much time in the principal’s office so she…

...puts oranges in her hair

…falls in love with him ’cause he complimented her hair.

You are Fumiaki. What do you do?

a) Hook up with her
Scroll down to the very end of the post.
b) RUN THE HELL AWAY
Continue reading.
c) EAT THE FREAKING GROUND
I’m not sure that’s a smart idea.

After RUNning THE HELL AWAY, you encounter your EVIL landlord. What do you do?

a) RUN THE HELL AWAY
Continue reading.
b) RUN THE HELL AWAY
Continue reading.
c) EAT YOUR FOOT
…sure, go do that.

You are at a phone booth. What do you do?

a) PRETEND IT’S TARDIS
YOU ARE DOCTOR WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoo
b) PHONE YOURSELF
LOLOLOLOLOL
c) EAT THE PHONE

You have chosen: PHONE YOURSELF. You are now LOLOLOLOLOL.

…You are at a curry shop. You buy curry. What do you do?

That’s wasting money!
b) CURRY YOURSELF
Curry YOURself!

Smart idea.

A cute waitress appears! What do you do?

YOU WIN THE GAME

BUT YOU FEEL SAD CAUSE SHE SAID

WOULD YOU LIKE TO REVERSE TIME?

a) Yes

b) Yes
Very good.
c) Yes
…Excellent.

The waitress, Nakagawa MIKAZE then invites you to RIDE IN HER CAR (innuendo not intended) but you are JEALOUS. What do you do?

a) Be jealous.
Proceed to next image.
b) EAT YOUR JEALOUSY
…Whatever.
c) Sit in the car
Skip next image.

You are now jealous.

You decide to sit in the car.

Whoops, bad idea.

Would you like to reverse time?

Sure you would!

BUT YOU CAN’T.

Thus you lose and the game is over.

…Meanwhile, Maya investigates all the places where TENGU ATTACK. She goes into the ZOUZAN BUNKA(chou?) and spots Fumiaki and Mikaze SLACKING OFF AND NOT SHOOTING TENGU WITH CROSSBOWS. Thus she does that herself, but not before an EVIL SHADOW LOOMS BEHIND HER.

COSTS THIRTY TWO MANA POINTS

First of all, I finally figured out what that piano sonata always in the background was called, when my brother was playing it one day.

Can you guess?

Well?

…It’s the Waldstein Sonata. Does that sound familiar? Yes it does, because he was supposedly the founder of Occult Academy.

There’s where Waldstein was from – Beethoven (yes, Beethoven) dedicated his 21st Piano Sonata in C major, opus 53, to Count Ferdinand Ernst Gabriel von Waldstein.

Here’s what it sounds like (though you should know, because it’s played in the anime).

In other words, Waldstein had less to do with the Occult than to do with trying to kill Napoleon – which he had a lot to do with (note trying). It’s a random name from a random sonata that Anime no Chikara just decided to use.

There’s probably some spiritual/occultish meaning behind it, but I’m not going to figure that out; might as well leave it to Sapphire Pyro again :P

Something that’s been somewhat bothering me – the Vice-Principal Kawashiro. She’s definitely, DEFINITELY thinking of something. Would it be to hide the Nostradamus’s Key? If that’s so, is she an alien?

That would certainly make sense – with Jun’ichiro finding out about the key, killing him would work, and faking a recording of him chanting a spell would make it seem like they (the aliens) didn’t know anything about his death. After Maya comes, Kawashiro started to somewhat oppose her being principal to stop her from finding the key, and specifically inquired with Fumiaki about what he was doing in the principal’s office.
If before Kawashiro was suspecting Fumiaki of doing something, now she knows – because of Fumiaki suddenly changing the topic. If he had not changed the topic, Kawashiro probably would not have suspected as much, but the sudden change confirms that Fumiaki and Maya are working about something that they cannot even tell the Vice-Principal.
And what’s something you can’t tell the Vice-Principal but something really, really important? Maybe like, getting Nostradamus’s Key?
With that, Kawashiro has her answer, because asking further would make Fumiaki suspicious about her. Thus, she did her random stuff so that Fumiaki wouldn’t know that she knows that Fumiaki and Maya are doing weird stuff, knowing that Fumiaki would reject her and thus move away.

If she’s not an alien, her motives are still extremely unknown. In that case, her reaction to Fumiaki’s comment is pretty weird – which means she has to have some strong motive to question what Maya is doing. The fact that her bodyguards wear sunglasses add even more to that; all cool people wear sunglasses, and all final bosses are cool.

However, it seems that the main plot thread is whether or not Mikaze is actually a TRAP (no, not that kind of trap). Seems to me that it’s pretty possible seeing the great dissimilarities between her and her grandma (employer, maybe? I sorta forgot), her attaching to Fumiaki without much conflict, and her general awesomeness.

As many people said, it’s “too good to be true, with some interesting longer theories as well. Then there are those who think it’s too obvious to be true; sorta reverse psychology, I guess.

Although if she is really a tengu in disguise, for some reason I think that won’t be revealed until the end – as in, the very, very end, as the final final epic boss. As you all know, final bosses are introduced quite a while in advance – and if her tenguness is related to that glowing red eye-bat thingy, that means that the entire plotline is about hunting tengu.

If you don’t understand what I mean, basically they’ve introduced the final boss in the first episode, and they’ll beat it in the last episode. Mikaze (IMO) is either the owner of the Nostradamus’s key (or even, the Nostradamus’s key; Rukia’s Hougyoku much?), or, some random character who either becomes comedic foil (but we’ve enough of that) or dies dramatically in Fumiaki’s arms (and Kawashiro’s the final boss). There are only those options.

Of course if none of those come true you can be sure that Anime no Chikara is conspiring against me :<

Finally, to clarify some things about how Mikaze knows Fumiaki’s real name – “Fumiaki” is spelt with kanji as 文明, which can also be pronounced as “Bunmei”. Thus, she basically pronounces his name differently because she reads the kanji differently.

Thus concludes the one-week-late (once again, sigh) post of Occult Academy.

Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin 2

[Announcement: Alright, so a bunch of people have started some sort of Instrumental Collaboration thing. Yeah, you’ve probably all seen this message already on numerous forums that I stalkbrowse frequently, but if you want to play something like this, go to this thread, register, and post whatever instrument you want to play. It’s gonna be spam time after this…]

SON I AM DISAPPOINT

In the most epic plot twist of the century, Maya reveals that SHE IS FUMIAKI’S MOM and so SHE IS VERY DISAPPOINT that he wears no clothes.

Fumiaki reveals that HE IS TIRED OF HER ALWAYS TELLING HIM WHAT TO DO and ARGUE. AT THE END HE FLEES OFF TO THE MUSHROOM KINGDOM WHERE HE CAN BE HAPPY

Like Mother, Like Son

Actually, it’s not all that grand – Fumiaki simply (while naked), chases Maya around until he falls into a nicely dug pit.

Maya goes home after the encounter and watches TV, showing a young Fumiaki BENDING A MUSHROOM. HOW AMAZING

Actually it's a muSHPOON

After that, she realizes that she STOLE FUMIAKI’S CELLPHONE but seizing the chance decides to pose for a photo shoot. Unfortunately, the phone revealed her suspicions all along – she’s actually a PILE OF BONES.

Maya then becomes the new principal by showing the Vice-Principal her father’s will. ABE MINORU then appears, who is also UCHIDA FUMIAKI, so Maya tries to stab him with a spear. And an evil eye.

Anyways, Fumiaki reveals that in the year TWENTY HUNDRED AND TWELVE, aliens have TAKEN OVER THE EARTH. Somehow, an INTERDIMENSIONAL RIFT appeared in OCCULT ACADEMY, destroying EVERYTHING in a FIFTY KILOMETER RADIUS. The NOSTRADAMUS prophecies have COME TRUE. However, if FUMIAKI finds something called NOSTRADAMUS’s KEY and DESTROY IT, the EARTH can be SAVED.
His CELLPHONE is a SPECIAL cellphone, so that when he presses the CAMERA button and thinks of AN ACTION, that ACTION will be applied to the object and show a picture of the WORLD in 2012. Confusing? Well, basically, say you take a picture of a building, and you think “destroy”. In 2012, the building will be… destroyed. If you take a picture of yourself and think nothing, you’ll see… yourself… in 2012… where aliens have taken over the world… if you’re not dead yet. If you take a picture of Nostradamus’s Key and think “destroy”, 2012 will be peaceful and not taken over by aliens.

To prove that his story’s correct, he BENDS A muSHPOON again.

Then he goes around photographing random objects.

It then switches to Maya in the shower because every anime needs a shower scene. An invisible monster comes and grabs her, but a SHINING BRICK KILLS THE MONSTER THING. Yeah. A shining brick.

Then they go to Diagon Alley and buy random spells and stuff.

Actually they get the spells from MAYA’S FATHER, who created a SPELL BOOK that was in a SHINING BRICK.

Yeah, a shining brick.

They then team up to KILL JK.

j/k

More infodump, yay, how awesome.

Smile punching JK was hands down the BEST SCENE OF THE EPISODE. Pretty random though :/

When I first started this show, I expected it to be really serious – from the description, I saw that it was an anime about a FREAKING SUPERNATURAL SCHOOL. If you just read the plot, you then notice that ALIENS HAVE TAKEN OVER EARTH and it’s SOMEONE’S DUTY TO KILL THE NOSTRADAMUS KEY.

So you’d expect it to be scary and have a lot of fight scenes, right? Yeah; but it’s not. “There’s not much action in this episode”
, “another problem with the show is that it isn’t scary”, and “this is definitely a show that lives off the humour”.

So with that, I’m not sure how this series will proceed. It’s got such a brilliant (well, maybe unbelievable, but…) backstory, an excellent concept, and the creators don’t even have to follow a manga (cause it’s Anime no Chikara). Why did they choose to add humour in lieu of action and creepiness?

Maybe it’s because creepiness is overdone. If you watch an occult show, you can expect it to be creepy – so the creators decided to make it funny instead.

Either way, this episode was good in its own way, and I’m looking forward to how the show will run. Three things can happen now; either the show continues with increasing its humourous plot, eventually reaching the final objective through some anticlimatic means, it reaches the final objective with climatic means, or it shifts to a more serious side. Personally, although I would’ve liked it at the beginning if it was serious, continuing with the humour is the better idea now. The show has potential, and it’s demonstrated that – so I’d like to see that potential realized.

Actually apparently Urusei Yatsura had the first tsundere :/ (1978)


Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin 1

[Notice: Added fanart page! Not that there’s going to be any for a long time to come. Thanks again, flare~ Also, for some reason strikethroughs now work – but only in HTML edit mode. Oh well, the only problem with HTML edit mode is the crap wordpress throws on images. We’d better sort that out one of these days…]

"We're sponsored by Sony. We can bribe whoever's chasing you."

OCCULT ACADEMY is about an OCCULT ACADEMY. Actually, it’s about some person running away from an EVIL BAT. The guy’s a pyrokinesiser, which means he can LEVITATE FIRE. Not that that does anything. Anyways, he doesn’t have HAX SIGN: BURN EVERYTHING so he has to TELEPOT out. UNFORTUNATELY HE HAS NO TELEPOT TO TELESMOKE so he actually needs to telePORT out.

"Sorry. You must be a Level 30 Ice/Lightning Wizard to use Teleport."

SO HE DIES.
:/

It is revealed he is the FIFTH “ABE MINORU”, a species of HIGHLY INTELLIGENT APE-ANIMALS. THERE IS ONLY ONE “ABE MINORU” left as the US cut all of their funding; NUMBER SIX, Uchida FUMIAKI.

After an OP with so much symbolism I’m not even going to search what they mean, it is revealed that THERE IS A GAP IN THE ANIME-TOUHOU CONTINUUM ALLOWING AYA TO EXIST HERE

In Gensokyo, tengu demons say they saw YOU! AND THEY WRITE THAT IN NEWSPAPERSSSSSSS

Anyways, A PERSON goes up to Mt. Minakamiyama WHERE THERE IS A SCHOOL called WALDSTEIN Academy but everyone calls it… THE OCCULT ACADEMY. YOU WEREN’T EXPECTING THAT, WERE YOU? HUH? HUH?!

"They call it... the hall of INFINITE STAIRS. Yeah, that didn't sound as good as I expected it to..."

The PERSON is greeted by A vice-PRINCIPAL known as KAWASHIMA, who reveals that THE PERSON’S NAME is Kawashiro KAPPA Kumashiro MAYA and that her DAD, Kumashiro JUN’ICHIROU… DIED. And they are currently HOSTING HIS FUNERAL.

:/

Anyways, they continue his funeral with a TAPE they found of him CHANTING A SPELL TO SUMMON ANCIENT SPIRITS OF THE DEAD. …which was… er.. pretty sad because HE SUMMONED ANCIENT SPIRITS OF THE DEAD.

Before Death; After Death. Wait. It was supposed to be reversed?

Thus the principal becomes an evil, superhuman zombie and attacks A BUNCH OF PEOPLE. But MAYA HITS HIM WITH A CHAIR

...Must have been something you ate. Rather what the heck did you eat?!

AND HE FLIES BACK INTO HIS COFFIN.

Maya then decides to give a POLITICAL SPEECH about RELIGIOUS MINORITIES which happens to be COMPLETELY and UTTERLY FALSE (Gustav Waldstein, the “founder” of the school and “definer” of “occult” only exists in this anime and “Letters from the Lost: A Memoir of Discovery”).

"...I'm not k-karaoking.. I'm.. er... delivering a... p-p-political speech..! Yeah!"

Oh, did I mention there were some other characters as well? Naruse KOZUE is just some other “LOL I CAN’T FIND MY GLASSES” girl who is the friend of Kuroki AMI, who is the childhood friend of MAYA. AMI decides to go find “HELP”, and brings along OCCULT DOWSER JK (who looks nothing like what you’d expect a (T)K to look like), and Smile, an ENGINEER-MECHANIC person.

"SOMEONE'S ATTACKING ME I CAN'T DEFEND MYSELF MOMMY I'M SADDDDDDDDDDD"

It is revealed that in their childhood, Maya and Kozue were recruited by NASA to Reach for the Moon, but they weren’t Immortal Smoke so they sorta died in space. Yeah, that has nothing to do with the plot. Whatever.

Wheeeeeeeeeeeeee~

Kozue gets INFECTED AND THIS TURNS INTO A HIGHSCHOOL OF THE DEAD CLONE attacks the other people. Fortunately, Kozumbie still has the same weaknesses Kozue had; SHE LOST HER GLASSES

Zombies have style too.

That doesn’t stop her from ATTACKING PEOPLE, but SMILE makes her realize that SHE’S NOT ACTUALLY A ZOMBIE and is a LAMIE. Not that that has anything to do with anything. :/

"B-b-but... MOMMY! ;w;"

Finally, MAYA enters a room with her father, where they talk about stupid stuff. But, MAYA reveals the sad, sad truth: her father is dead and nothing can change that.

The lamie dies and the show is over.

Gummy worms!

The vice-principal and some tough looking guy talk about how Maya’s the principal’s daughter in preparation for what is obviously going to be the main plot-thread of the series. The second plot-thread comes when it is revealed that Maya committed suicide and drowned, upside-down, in a giant hurricane-tornado-whirlpool thing.

Spongebob couldn't even help you

But finally, the third plot-thread is revealed; after all, the main themes are Daddy Issues and Rotating Penis.

…Eh. First episode had too much information at once, too many things to think about. First, you have the time-travelling thread, which you would’ve thought would be the main thread – until it is revealed that it most likely isn’t because it’s only mentioned at the very beginning and very end. Then the occult battle scenes make you think “how is this possible?!”, and then “how much does Maya know about the occult?”.

Those are the obvious ones, but I was thinking for a while what the people in Occult Academy study. The occult? If they do, it must be pretty boring as none of them knew anything about lamies (lamiae?) when it broke out. What’s the point of that? Does Maya’s father know that the occult exists? What exactly are the “Abe Minoru”s?

Maybe first episodes are supposed to catch your attention with as many questions as possible; nevertheless, I prefer it when it starts with a single, obvious idea and then expanding on that.

Maybe that’s what happened this episode. Time travelling is the main thread, and the principal’s death etc. merely acted to introduce the characters and their abilities and provide some background on the entire anime. After the infodump (which really isn’t an infodump due to battle scenes and the like), it then goes back to the main thread: rotating penis. Er, time travelling.

Despite the confusion this episode, I’m still really looking forward to this. I’m pretty sure the next episode’s out already (making this post a week late), but before I watch that I really need an answer to the most important question of all:

Why is JK so fat?

Fractalized landscapes / Landscape terrain editors? / Or just photoshop
