ANIME MONDAY 5/20/13

Hello & Welcome to ANIME MONDAY right here on Unleash the Fanboy! As always I am your gracious host, Marcell and we have another hot batch of anime for you guys. The battles against the Cold Emperor’s begin in “FAIRY TAIL”, Summer vacation starts in “PERSONA 4”, Kirito & Asuna are drawn back to the battlefield in “SWORD ART ONLINE”, Alibaba’s past is revealed in “MAGI”, & Mikasa learns of her brothers fate in “ATTACK ON TITAN”. Let’s begin.

Fairy Tail – “Natsu Vs. Yuka The Wave User”

“Natsu Vs. Yuka The Wave User” is nothing too spectacular but it is a good ways away from mundane. Natsu’s fight scene (while panfully short) shows how versatile the Dragon Slayer can be when he uses his head, and the interaction between him and Gray works well here. The adventure continues next week as Lyon continues his plans and Lucy takes on Sherry.

3.5/5

Attack On Titan – “The Small Blade – Defense of Trost Pt. 3”

“The Small Blade” while not as character heavy as last episode still is another good offering from this so far stellar series. The fear is real, the characters are relateable, and the action scenes are still very well done. The fight to survive continues next week as the trainees mount an assault on Headquarters and the mystery of the “Rogue” Titan is revealed.

Persona 4 The Animation – “A Stormy Summer Vacation 1/2”

“A Stormy Summer Vacation 1/2″ is a decent little break from all of the mystery by being enjoyable and humorous. The focus on Nanako and the others was nice and it was good to see Yu be in the episode without being the main focus. The Investigation continues next week as we see summer vacation from Yu Narukami’s point of view.

Sword Art Online – “Edge of Hell’s Abyss”

“Edge of Hell’s Abyss” is an episode with heart warming as well and heart breaking scenes. The stuff with Kirito & Asuna is definitely the selling point here and the other moments and battles are good as well, exploring the world as well as more characters in it. The fight to survive continues next week…where it’s GAME OVER.

Magi: Labyrinth of Magic – “A Promise That Can’t Be Kept”

“A Promise That Can’t Be Kept” is a pretty somber episode that explores Alibaba’s character as well as expanding some more on the Fog Troop. A couple funny moments in the beginning help keep the tone pretty light until the heavy stuff starts rolling. The magic continues next week as Cassim mounts a force to take back Alibaba.
