Zetman is one of the new series I'm checking out for the Spring 2012 anime season. I like sci-fi and action and don't mind a bit of monstrosity and blood, and Zetman fits the profile. I've read sporadic chapters of the manga but never actually started following the series, but now that the anime is here I thought I should check it out.
Jin might not have the most stylish outfit, but he has style when it comes to beating up punks.

Kabuto has a flashback while battling the Uchiha bros.
Obviously Kabuto hasn't been following the manga very closely, because you can never count out a Uchiha and their ability to troll with eye magic.
Itachi announces he'll use super duper destiny-determining technique Izanami to defeat Kabuto, but just not right now. Kabuto uses a jutsu to warp the cavern and impale Itachi with the stalactites and stalagmites, but Sasuke puts up a wall of Amateratsu black flames to keep Kabuto back. [..]

Law states that he saved Luffy on a whim and directs the Straw Hats to the back of research lab to meet up with the other members.

Queen's Blade is back... yay? It's obviously not a show to have high expectations for, but sometimes it gets so bad or bizarre it becomes amusing, and of course there is plenty of fan service. Let's see how the new season will go now that we have a brand new protagonist and a new set of fighters along side some returning favorites.
This post covers the first TV episode plus the two prologue OVA episodes. There are actually two more OVAs, but they are just Alleyne and Sigui doing "exercises" an [..]

The Winter 2012 anime season is in the history books and a new season has begun. As usual, I'm late to the party when it comes to picking new shows for the season. Being a graduate student is rather time consuming due to the research and course work, and anime gets pushed aside from time to time. Anyways, below are some of the shows I'll watch and maybe blog for the spring 2012 season. As always, a list of season previews from other harder-working blogs is provided at the end of this post.

Urahara, Ichigo, Chad, Orihime, Nel and Pensches sneak back into Hueco Mundo to find the place littered with arrancar/hollow bodies.

Sasuke and Itachi vs. Kabuto continued.
I guess the translation for "Izanami" is "Automatic Win".
Kabuto tries to convince Sasuke to turn on Itachi and join his side by saying that he is similar to Sasuke and that Itachi is a big liar. Sasuke is not really convinced and Itachi labels Kabuto as an even bigger liar than he is. Seeing that talking isn't doing much good, Kabuto goes back to stating that the Uchiha bros can't afford to kill him and that he is not vulnerable to wounding (due [..]

Sasuke and Itachi vs. evil snake sage Kabuto continued.
Snake trying to bite but only got a mouthful of feathers.
In his sage mode, Kabuto unleashes a jutsu equivalent to a persistent flash-bang to mess up the Uchiha bro's sight and hearing, and the sound is so bothersome that the brothers lose their Susanoos. Kabuto can safely navigate using his snake senses and tries to swallow up Sasuke, but Itachi uses a Susanoo arm to fend Kabuto off. Kabuto wonders if Itachi can sense his chakra, [..]

It's safe to say that Susanoos are not afraid of snakes.
Kabuto covers his eyes with his hood to avoid any genjutsu and chooses to use the snake senses to keep track of the Uchiha bros. Kabuto attacks with a few big snakes, but Itachi and Sasuke easily kills them with their Susanoos. Sasuke grabs Kabuto's robes but only finds more snakes inside.
