Esh has had a love for tech and anime since childhood when the only tech was the school library computer and the only anime he knew was Ronin Warriors. In the 90s he learned HTML on the Sega Dreamcast and built his 1st website Volcanic Dragon but now he run’s Eshcole.com!
What’s this I actually had time to watch ALL the anime I wanted last week? Well, here goes an article that also usually not so long! I got several anime to talk to you about which includes my bro’s suggestion of Assassination Classroom that I literally binged the first 14 episodes of last week to get caught up and I LOVE IT! This article would include Punch Line but I have yet to see an episode I feel like typing about. -_- Enough rambling, more scrolling!
Disclaimer: No manga is read here. I only read it when the series is over and I know it’s continuing on in the manga and that’s only if I’m interested enough in the story to do that. Most of the time, I’m not.
Note: The video is towards the bottom of the post when it’s ready if you don’t feel like reading but there might be some details here that are not in the video and I always review more anime here than in the video.

Seraph of the End Episode 05
We finally get to see the leader of the Japanese Imperial Demon Army for the first time and we get a quick glimpse at the families that are behind it. Apparently Guren is not a part of a family that’s well respected. After a failed surprise attack by Hyakuya which I’m now gonna start calling Yu from now on Guren decides to issue the test for Cursed Gear. The first part of the test was “simple”, stay standing while Guren’s demon is running rampant in the classroom. To no surprise Yu, Yoichi, and Kimizuki (with the help of his desk) were the only ones left standing besides Shinoa who we also learn is a member of the main family line of the army. The teacher of the class was skeptical about Yoichi being strong enough to form a contract with a demon. Guren quickly had Yoichi make up his own mind on whether he wanted to go forward or not. We end with everyone in the room where the remaining sacred gear was stored and the final part of the test is set to begin. Things have been a little slow in this anime so hopefully they start to pick up with everyone receiving their cursed gear and the vampires declaring war on the humans.
World Trigger Episode 28

His tactics successfully held them at bay forcing Viza to unleash his powerful black trigger Organon which cut Reiji in half. This upset Youtarou as he clues us in the Reiji actually had a much stronger weapon called Full Arms which he was certain would have guaranteed Reiji’s victory had he used it…whatever it is. Enedora turns things up a few notches and invades Border HQ to the annoyance of his commander. Jin and Kuga finally make it to Osamu and the Rank C agents, just in time to face Viza and Hyuse who were about to abduct the little ones. It seems we’re gonna be bombarded with fight after fight for a little bit and I like it!

Gunslinger Stratos Episode 05
Both Tohrus made it to the end game at the same time, so the TimeKeepers gave both of them the energy cubes that were originally meant for only one team. We finally hear the backstory to how this cruel game started and why the disease known as Degradation happens in the first place. Turns out the usual story of humanity being too smart for our own good is the cause. 10yrs from now we invent time warp technology that bridges the gap between two worlds, allowing us to travel between the two. The technology quickly sparks a war between the two worlds and we end up destroying both. Degradation is the result of both worlds now having no future and to matters worse time is now screwed up cause of the time warp technology. Now the Time Keepers are trying to make things right through the power of the energy cubes but the catch there’s isn’t enough to save both worlds. The solution to this is to have them battle out in a death match and the winner gets to live. The story is definitely a bit better now but I’m still not a fan.
