So I was pushed into watching the raw telecast of K-On1 despite being sleepy and shit, but then this appeared:
Yes. A movie is apparently being made. I can only assume 2ch and maybe 4ch is all but disintegrated with this announcement. Considering the manga is over, this is likely going to be an anime original.
If it is, it better damn well be Burokan.

To answer why I didn’t blog Sae’s arc is because, aside from watching it almost solely for completion’s sake, I didn’t like Sae’s arc. At all. Mostly because while Sae was likable enough, Junichi was a completely perverted and single minded dumbass who thought more with his penis than with his brain. He may have single-handedly ruined the arc for me, as all the ridiculous events including the excess fanservicing were essentially his fault to begin with.
This is why this new arc really had my hopes up because I was expecting a lot for the new storyline, as well as the more intriguing prospects behind Nanasaki Ai.
And frankly, thank God, I wasn’t dissapoint.

When we saw those nukes rising up into the sky over the remains of civilized Japan, we already knew that deep shit was already on its way. It might be considered almost unexpected that Japan, the only country that has ever felt the nightmare of the atom’s destructive powers, would be the country to feel it again when civilization is on its death knells.
As fate (or word of god) would have it, the nuke never strikes land and explodes over the atmosphere, sending electron shock waves that, in reality, might simply be worse than simply wiping Japan from the face of the earth. Now with humans still alive, they’ll have to deal with the aftermath of an atmospheric explosion: EMP.

Say what you want about Ryoushi, even at this point nearing the conclusion of the series. He might still be sort of a coward but he tries his damn best every time he needs to. Manliness isn’t something you feel the need to perpetually show every moment of everyday, but a quality that shines forth from you when it is required of you. Ryoushi managed to show how important this is, as the only person capable of saving Ryouko.
And of course he’d succeed. He’s the lead male after all!

I don’t think I can really remember my graduation days, both in college and in high school. It’s been so many a year since the day that I had to step out of those institutions, propelled to challenge even greater horizons ahead of me as I plan and planned for my future. For the longest time I had already had my sights set on medical school so, for the most part, I saw most of high school and college as stepping stones towards this goal. Not to say that I didn’t like those days or that I had chosen to forget them, but in retrospect it makes me remember how perhaps I never cherished those days as I could have.
If there’s anything I remember about graduating though, it’s that I likely cried after the ceremonies. It’s always been a solemn ceremony no matter how you slice it. It’s a big event both for those who now are to leave and for those who are to be left behind.
This is a fact that Azusa now has to face, after so long of putting it away.

As the captain puts it so aptly, it is Armageddon.
The final battle between the living and the dead had already begun days ago with the first infected bite, yet by now national governments have concluded that human society as we know it is lost, and all that remains is to wipe away the major centers of infection in one last ditch attempt to save what’s left of a dwindling humanity. All the major powers have in one way or another arrived at this conclusion. The major metropolitan centers are lost to the undead and what’s left of humanity have scattered into the wind, trying to find sanctuary on hell on earth. If Armageddon had not already come, then now it surely has.
So with that most terrifying of weapons unleashed, the world will be cleansed by nuclear fire.

I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t really mind at all if there’s no performance or no music at all in the final episode. Their school festival performance was a rock it to the shit display as it is and it’s enough of a fitting end for HTT’s high school incarnation.

Mutiny on the Bouty eh? This reference is also from the source material, and as Takashi puts it bluntly, it’s a very apt description of what’s already happening in the Takagi household. It’s not simply an issue of adults vs. kids, us vs. them or whatever, but more of complacency.
It’s only been a day since they arrived and they’re already starting to get soft. While they do know that this sort of peace can’t last forever, it’s a very tempting offer considering the hell that they’ve had to endure up to that point. Regular people would have dropped from exhaustion but they still manage to keep chugging along.
They’ll need to keep chugging along though, when one considers what is about to transpire.

Man training! Man training! Man training!
Of course what it means to be a real man is sort of relative, but we can all agree that while Ryoushi is slowly making his way up the testosterone ladder, there are still a lot of things that need some real working on. Not the least of it all is his phobia which is still getting the better of him especially during important fights. Nearing the end of the series run it’s pretty much expected that it’s time for him to take that level in badass we’ve been waiting for for a while.
I guess it’s a good thing that it came during the time that the proverbial shit has finally hit the fan.
