Free! Episode 5

Hello everyone! I have finally here with me Free! Episode 5. The most exciting stuff (for me at least) won't happen until NEXT episode, but this is a good story development for the emotional episode 6. SO MANY FEELS!

Anyway, here it goes! Episode 5!

I don't even know why you bother asking Haru and Rei what they are doing. As you all know, Haru ONLY does free, and Rei can ONLY swim butterfly. Why the heck bother asking them what they are doing?!

Had Haruka said something else, I would have gotten a heart attack, I swear.


Oh wow... Talk about safe. Swim Club Summer Training Camp from Hell? Yup.

The flames add a nice touch to the poster, must say. 

Yup, this plan screams SAFE all over the map. Just look at it! Deserved islands, big whirlpools, gigantic waves. Wow, what could POSSIBLY go WRONG?

Wait, wait. What is this? Are they sharing a popsicle?


Kinda looks like the popsicle from Kingdom Hearts 2. But I don't wanna go there... I still haven't gotten over it ._.

Oh? OH? Does Haruka, dare I say it, look concerned about Makoto? Oh My Gawd, They are going to hell!

This... Kinda looks like a confession scene. Now all I am waiting for is the Sakura blossoms which always appear on the front scene no matter what time of the year the confession happens.

Thought must admit that I always thought Makoto would be the first to confess, rather than Haruka...


... Oh. No love scene... Shucks.

I am getting the sense that Makoto is afraid of the ocean. Now I am totally understanding why Haruka immediately said, "too much bother" when the idea first popped up for this training camp. You are such a good boyfriend, Haruka...

And the concerned boyfriend sticks close to Makoto. Wouldn't want him to fall to the ocean and drown now, do we?


You smelled something?!?! YOU SMELLED MACKERELS? What kind of human - shark hybrid are you?!?!?!

Does this actually means that Haruka has had an obsession of eating mackerels since elementary school? Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaang... Maybe he is hoping to actually turn into a dolphin by eating so many.


I think you mean SEX difference... They are girls after all. And of COURSE they would have enough money to afford the lodge by themselves, but not for the guys as well.

OF COURSE....! Soooo silly of me!

Do these things actually exists??? I am so glad my swimming club was poor and couldn't afford any floating devices. Then again... I kinda wish they had some, as they loved to push you into the pool and see you struggle as you fight for your life. All time time they kept screaming "Swim! SWIM!"

And the concerned boyfriend strikes again! I am kinda liking this ship... Such nice change of pace from aloof Haruka to actually concerned over his best friend Haruka. I LIKE IT!

Gou deeply apologizes for interrupting your date with Nitori. She really, really does. She is currently running for her life while all the yaoi fangirls are chasing after her blood. 

OH WOW! They are really trying to make me have a heart attack! Rin concerned about Makoto as well?! DARN YOU! DON'T MAKE ME LIKE YOU!!!

Oh my gawd, Nagisa, you cockblocker. READ THE MOOD! Not only did you not allow Haruka to watch over his boyfriend for the night, but you also didn't allow Rei to spend some quality time with you!

Maybe... Just maybe, Nagisa was afraid of his chasticity with Rei.

Or maybe he as no fricking clue. 

This is one of those cases that, with a night as beautiful as this one, what could possibly go wrong?!?!

Oh, a storm. Go figure...  What a GREAT idea to go swimming during the night, Rei. Boy, I knew you were smart!

A cliffhanger? Nooooooooo! Makoto!!!

... And Rei.

This is not going to end up good ._.

This is all I have for you guys today! Sorry if my comments sound kinda sad, but I am kinda in the dumps right now. So many things happening, and not all of the good *sigh*

Have a nice week, everyone!
Ja ne!

So Wrong but so Good...

I can't believe I am writing a post today of all days. I haven't been sleeping well all week, and I have been about to fall asleep ever since I woke up. But, for some reason, these thoughts do not leave my mind, and I feel like the only way to get rid of them is to write them here.

Another inconvenience right now is that my roommate is drunk out of his @$$ and is trolling my FB. I never thought that the drunken "hick" was true. Shows you how much I know.... *gets another post in FB from him.*


I guess I am going to end up one roommate less tonight...

Back to my topic! It is sad for me to say that ever since I looked into dating sims, I have been somewhat hooked into them. Specially, and those who play them will know why, the Voltage Inc. ones. They know what they are doing, that's for sure.

This is what I have been going through.

It all started with me playing the game L.A. -YAOI- a BL game. As it was the last game that I found that it was shounen ai, I decided (against my better judgement) to try other games created by the same company.

I didn't quite get the results I was expecting. I found a game called "Shall We Date: Ninja Love" which is a money sucker. A bloody money black hole type sucker. And if you decided to NOT spend money on them, its frustrating as hell.I won't dwell too much on this game.

Trying to widen my choices, I decided to do just an app search of dating sims game. Of course, to make it slightly more appealing for me, I decided to always put boy's names in my OC's XD. Hey! I got to get my kicks somehow! Searching for more games I came across an app called "Thief X", or more accurately, "Love Letter from Thief X."

Long story short, you are the granddaughter of a genius Japanese artists, and these groups of thieves have come to kidnap you in order to find out the "greatest invention" of your grandfather. Or something of the sort.

After a quick introduction to all the possible characters and "paths," I decided to try as my first Hiro. The younger and heart-breaker of the group.

He is quite the cutie, so I said "Why not?"

And I sucked.


Like, I had to do his path THREE TIMES for me to get the "Happy Ending." Which is the best ending for this app (sometimes they change the names of the endings).

For some reason I am just terrible in his path! When his sequel came out, I was crazy enough to get it as well. I thought I would know better, and that I would be able to get the best ending.


Why do I keep trying with you?!?!?!?

Ah... I see why.

The only thing that bothered me about his story (it always does whenever I encounter a situation like that in anime or manga) is when he said "please do not fall in love with me." I'm like WTF MAN! I don't even KNOW you! Are there people like that, so confident of themselves, that they know they will have people falling under their feet left and right? I don't get it! PISSES ME OFF!

This is probably why I never really picked the right answers...

Then I tried Riki from Thief X. The story was okay, nothing majorly amazing to be honest, but wow! I got the happy ending! I guess I am not as bad at this as I thought!

My next try was Takuto. For me, Takuto was a character that pretty much went along these lines.

"I don't want to be in charge for you. You are bothersome. Leave me alone. Such a pain. Don't be in my way. Baka, I like you."

I mean, HUH? When did this happen?!?! I don't know much, but I don't think girls would appreciate being insulted by their "boyfriend" whenever they are with them. Don't expect to get nice nicknames from him, unless you actually consider "idiot" a nice nickname for a girl. And for the record, I sucked at his path too. I could NEVER figure out what was the right answer for him.

In the end, Thief X was not a grand experience for me. I was going to end this app with a sour taste in my mouth (my money....!!!).

That was until! Until they put out this "special story" showing you THIS!!!

The story was amazing (sad it was so short... T^T), and their reactions at having to play a "BL" story were hilarious. Ahh... I knew I liked Voltage for some reason...

My next app tryout was "My Forged Wedding" (bloody money sucker! why are you so good??). Now this story was slightly (for me) more interesting than the Thieves one. And the characters design are not bad.

Yup, not bad at all. The story is that you moved from Kyoto to Tokyo (mmm never noticed that you just move the letters around for those names...) in order to find a job, and your uncle promised to help you with this. When you find your uncle, he says that the condition to help you find a job is if you help one of his friends with their "situation." In almost all cases, their situations involves having to fake being their fiance for some x or y reason.

After the quick introduction, my first option was (and always will be) Kunihiko. For some reason he was slightly more attractive than the rest in my eyes. When I found out that he is my "uncle," I knew the story was going to be JUICY.

... *drools.*

Oh, where was I? Oh yeah! His story is good, and it seems I knew this guy the best cause I always get the "Super Happy Ending" with him. The images are gorgeous by the way.

My second option was was Yuta, who is a comedian and has an adorable personality. SO MANY FEELS IN THIS PATH!!! SO MANY!!!

My third option was... Wait a minute...


No seriously, this is Makoto. Always taking take of others, the big brother, moved to Tokyo to study law school. OMG is this where you went after finishing high school in Iwatobi???? ARE THE RUMORS TRUE?!?!?!?

One hilarious fact is that if you choose his path, you actually do end up being married to him in the end. With everyone else you just end up together, but with Mako-*coughs* sorry, Takao, you have a wedding and all. His family was very sneaky...

I didn't really do Ren (another of the options), but he so DARN ADORABLE. Like, Haruka from Free! but with a plant obsession. Actually more like a cuter version of Haruka to be honest... SO ADORABLE, EGK! I'M MELTING...!

One of the characters that I consider to be the best as a secondary character was Saeki. He is so bloody funny when he is flirting with you in front of your love interest. I considered him more interesting like that than when I was actually with the guy. Such a pervy friend, LOL.

By the way...

This is so misleading, and I LOVE IT!!! XD

 Okay, enough with My Forged Wedding. Moving on with the next app! The next one I will be talking about is called "Seduced in the Sleepless City." In here you are a reporter, and have to do a special documentary about one successful idol that you encounter in this hotel/casino. Here are the choices:

Of course, OF COURSE, that my first choice was going to be Mirai. He is just so...

And so...!
And really, really...

I JUST HAD TO!!! Can you blame me...?

To be honest, he is the only character I have tried in this app. But he is sooooo worth it.

One weird thing about the character of Yuzuki (another of the characters) is that he looks remarkably similar to Yamato from My Forged Wedding. Mmmm....

I also might try Kyoichi later on. Cause him trying to tie me up really won me over XD. What's the deal with romance perverted writers? Just look at Saeki too!

The next app, which actually looks slightly more advanced than previous ones is "10 Days with My Devil." It actually starts with an introductory video!

Of course it only makes me want to gag and vomit, and it's no wonder why I haven't played it at all. The character design leaves so much to be desired, and the story sounds so SAPPY.

The story goes like this. This is you:

(I'm serious. You are toast) And you had to make a pack with one of those devils to give you 10 more days to live, before they take your soul to the next life.

I just... Is not.... Meh. Is not convincing!!! So... blegh...

By the way

There is only one demon prince in my heart and that is Wolfram von Bielefeld! If he had been one of the options, THERE IS NO THINKING. YOU CLICK AND GET!

Again, so misleading...! People are going to get the wrong idea of this app! XD

The next app is turning out to be even less alluring than the ones before... Even with the introductory video. This one is called "Dreamy Days" which supposedly you return to your hometown after being gone for 10 years to finish up your high-school. Turns up that you made a "promise" with one of these guys to end up together when you get older.

Not to be mean but, the guy on the right, Haruka, looks so much like Yuki from Kyo Kara Maoh. And I hate Yuki with a passion! I just can't pick him, and he is the only availabe option right now. NO. NO WAY IN HELL.

The only one I might try is him, Rihito. Typical boy who is so pretty they all thought he was a girl in elementary school. That is bound to make a pretty interesting adolescent personality, right...? Riiiiight....?

Aaaaaand I am finally done! These are not by far the only games available from Voltage Inc. But they are the only ones I thought were worth some consideration. There is really no reason why I'm writing about them down here, but I needed to take it out of my chest.

Phew! I'm done!

I'm turning myself in, guys. Have a nice day!

Crack Videos of Free!

I have been roaming around YouTube lately, seeing if there is anything interesting. I managed to come across very amusing videos of the anime series Free! After laughing my head off for hours, I decided to share some of those videos here! I don't think I will be posting ALL the videos, but pretty much those that I really, really liked.

Of course, they might damage some of your perception of the anime, but my perception of it is not that good to begin with. One of the cases is that now, whenever I see Rin walking towards the group, I will always hear the Shark theme song in the background.


I will never be able to take Rin seriously, now.

I hope you all enjoy them as much as I did! I have also posted some of the best lines of the videos, cause they are worth it! With my comments, of course, between parenthesis.


(The best lines are Makoto's... The Freudian slips kill me in this video...)

"Good Morning, Makoto. Here, you can take this to your boyfriend."

*chuckles* He is not my boyfriend!" (You sound too happy, Makoto)

"Hee, you are not fooling anyone, dear." (YOU GOT THAT RIGHT!)


"Are you in here?"

"Don't come in."

"Okay, I'm coming in!" (LOOOOL)


"Ma'am? Haru is a guy."

"Yeah, you wouldn't have a crush on him otherwise!"

"Shut up!" (Hey, at least your classmates accept you as who you are...)

(They pretty much got down Haruka's inner thoughts throughout the whole show in one sentence...)

"Goddammit, I fucking love water."  (That's... deep. Pun intended.)


"Woawoawoa! What the hell, man?!"

"Dude, what?!"

"Why the hell are you bathing in your speedos, dude?!" (Amm, you went into his bathroom and are upset because he was in his bathing suit??? Were you expecting something else...?)

"Well, why the hell won't the makers of the show make me bathe like a normal person?!"

"Because the writers wanted to piss the fangirls off." (That or give the girls the perfect excuse to ogle Haruka's body while coming out of the bath. Just saying...)

"Oh. It's only natural then..."



Water has never looked so sexy in my life. (You call it sexy. I call it druggy.)


"Oh... Oh...! OH...! Oh... You cock-tease..." (Amusing, as I thought the exact same thing when I saw it the first time...)

Underwear, guys. It's called underwear. That's what people wear on the trousers. (Underwear does not exists int that universe, I swear.)


Yeah, I don't think is just their names that are feminine. (I don't know. Have you SEEN their bodies...?)

No! NO! Don't say the magic "P" word!

... That is pool, guys. (Unless we are talking about Rin, cause then he would be talking about his "sight." And we all know what  THAT is...)

Have a good laugh, and enjoy the weekend!

Free! Episode 4

Hello everyone! Despise me being filled with exams for the next couple of days, I still had the chance to make the review for Episode 4 of Free! Kinda inspirational, but mostly hilarious in its way. Hope you all enjoy it as much as I did!


You know, once again, this anime got to the point that I am more amazed that Haruka doesn't have a designed Monday's, Tuesday's, Wednesday's (and so on) suit, rather than he has a particularly hard time trying to decide which one to wear.

Haruka... Do you even own underwear?

My reaction to this scene:

Awww... The kitty is so cute.

Play with me too Mako-chan! I'll gladly be your pus-Ow! No need to slap me so hard, Yoite. I was kidding...!

... Or was I? 8P

I am NOT going to put all the camera angles that this episode subjects us to, but what is with these angles, man?!?!?!

It makes me feel like I'm doing something wrong! Egh! Oh no, not again! Anything but the pelvis! ANYTHING BUT THE PELVIS!


This scene made me feel like it was saying this:

HA! You thought it was getting serious, right? WELL, YOU THOUGHT WRONG!

I still can't blame her for her reactions. Best decision she has ever made in her life, I bet.

 Just HOW does he do that???? Doesn't it take a particular set of skills to be swimming and yet remain underwater?

I am noticing that this Kohai is kinda screaming something like...


Yeah, something like that. Maybe a tattoo would be more efficient.

Their bodies? THEIR BODIES? Have you SEEN their bodies?! They are ripped!!!

I would never have guessed that they haven't swam for years with those bods! EVER! Just HOW do they have to look in this anime for someone to be able to tell that they have been exercising? @.@

The things we do for love, right? Rei-chan?

I'm getting the sense (and all those who have finished the series, would know if I am right or not), that is not that she is busy, but that she is totally avoiding anything to do with swimming suits....


.... Nah.

Hint, Nagisa-san, big BIG hint.

 LOL, a girl getting bored shopping. Muscles can only inspire you so much...

No! NO! NO...! Don't you DARE kiss him! You screwed up your chance five years ago. No Haru-chan for you!

Meh... Because Rin-chan is a completely angsty-emoish-blegh kind of person, this shipping has totally sank for me.

The potential is there, but it's just meh... As far as I can see. But what other fangirls see is completely different, I have been shown...

From what I have read, Rin is supposed to say baby. But it kinda sounds like he is saying boobie... With an anime as cracky as this, of course you would do abridged versions with even more crack! OBVIOUS!

Rei-chan.... With those amazing underwater skills, maybe you should try synchronized swimming rather than, you know... Swimming. It would be more beautiful, no?

I'm begging to think, Haruka, that you ONLY know free...

PFFFF! Haruka, trying to cheer Rei-chan up, he ended up being depressed along with him! Oh! I can almost see the mushrooms!!!

You forgot to bring Mako-chan with you. I bet he would have gotten a better representation of your words, than even you would.

And that is all I have for today! The fun is just beginning! Yay! I'm so excited!!!

Hope you all have a great week!
Ja ne!
