Jormungand Episode 5

Well, this week’s episode certainly was an interesting one. We see a lot more of Jonah’s past, and even find out Koko has a brother. While I was expecting Casper to be the one that was responsible for Jonah’s death and that he was the one that set him up with Koko, I wasn’t expecting Jonah to go Rambo on a military base and kill everyone himself. What a boss…

This episode was interesting for a weird reason. When I first saw Casper, I immediately assumed he was the one responsible for Jonah’s parents’ deaths, but then as the episode went on, I became less and less suspicious. I thought maybe Jonah was mad at him for being responsible for Marka’s death, but then it turns out I was right the first time…weird.

All of that aside, did anyone else think that this episode seemed to be a start of an arc? They talk about going to Africa, as well as the negative implications that it would have for Valmet. That suggests that the next few episodes might be linked…or they might just all happen in Africa. Still…I don’t have much to go on, so I guess I’ll have to wait and find out next week or something.

Aniblog Tourney Round 2

Vote for me here!

After somehow making past the first round by seven votes, it’s time to start up again with round 2. Same deal, basically…too lazy to type it all up again. This time, I’m up against Nigorimasen, so once again give them a look before making a vote…preferably for me, but for whoever you feel is better (while you’re at it, you should also give a vote to Feal over at EmptyBlue because he’s awesome).

So once again, let me put up some stuff to help out with the navigation of my blog. Out of general laziness, I just copied the stuff from my first post with some minor modifications. Also, a second thing…I made a Rubik’s Cube video for today as well to give you something to look at (also because it’s kinda the thing that makes me different). Not my best showing, but meh…I’m out of practice.

  • If editorials are your things, most of mine go under the label of Life’s Great Mysteries…just the name I came up with for my take on things. They’re just the musings I have when I sit alone in a room in front of a computer. I also put a lot of work into a post about my reviewing process.
  • I also recently organized all of my reviews into a page so that they can be found more easily. A note about my reviewing style…I’ve been toying around with different systems, and I don’t have a set style yet. You can find them here: Reviews
  • If you’re bored and curious about me, I answered AceRailgun’s 50 Questions as well.
  • I’m one of those guys that’s just kinda around. I’ve even appeared in a podcast with AceRailgun and Yerocha. I was a guest on the Anime Afterlife Podcast too once or twice.
