Gintama is back, with the all new protagonist Kintoki Sakata to boot! I wonder how Gintoki will react to this? Lol. So, just to confirm: Yes, Gintama is definitely back and will be aired every Thursday at 6:00 PM on TV Tokyo Japan. That means new downloadable laughs every Friday of the week. One catch though: There will a be repeat of selected episodes in addition to the new ones. When or what will be re-aired? That I do not know yet.
For my review about Gintama btw: click here.
Download Kintama 01 / Gintama 253 here at NyaaTorrents
Kintama is brilliant breaking-the-fourth-wall exploring new undiscovered universes in story plotting.
Silver wavy-haired Sakata Gintoki, coming back to his home after leaving for six months without notice, finds himself unrecognizable by everyone and and that a certain Sakata Kintoki, a complete opposite of Gin: gold straight hair, nice, generous, hard-working, etc., was running his house and business as if taking Gin’s place.
Thinking everyone was just playing a prank on him, Gin pleaded to his fellow protagonists Shinpachi and Kagura, but to no avail. He sulked that they just threw 60 volumes of anime DVDs- 5 years of good times, bad and life realizations they had together. Both were confused and claimed that it was Kin that was with them on all 253 episodes. As Gin watched the DVDs, all the episodes contained Kintoki, and not him.
The perfect Kintoki defended that it could be Gin hallucinating- that he was watching the Kintama anime all the while and fantasized that it was about him, and had gone mad after. With no one to recognize him, Gin was stripped of all his sense of self. Reflecting on all 252 episodes of Gintama, could everything we’ve watched all this time be a lie?
So Gintama (Silver Spirit), make way for Kintama (Golden Balls)!

Carnival Phantasm Season EX
Apparently, another special episode of Carnival Phantasm was released last November 2011, titled Season EX. It really doesn’t have anything to do with a whole season, but it lasts for around 20 minutes, far longer than your usual 12-14 minute Carnival Phantasm episode. In the episode list, it’s supposed to go before number 9, the start of Season 3.
New characters have been introduced and have been given ample screen time, specifically these four:
Aozaki Aoko from Shingetsutan Tsukihime, sister of Kara No Kyoukai’s Aozaki Touko – the one who made Shiki’s glasses that suppresses his Mystic Eyes of Death Perception. In this spin-off of their fateful meeting, Aoko actually showed herself to Shiki not to genuinely help him, but to ‘raise’ him to be her future spouse. Cougar-lol!
Michael Roa Valdamjong, the main antagonist of Shingetsutan Tsukihime. This version of him is based from the original visual novel and Melty Blood game since in the anime, he never really had a body to begin with. He just reincarnated as the ‘other’ Shiki Tohno. You can see him at the beginning of the episode, recently incarnated, taking comfort in the company of Nrvnqsr Chaos.
Next is Caren Ortensia, a main character from Fate/Hollow Atraxia – the sequel to Fate/Stay Night. Since I wasn’t able to play Fate/Hollow Atraxia, I wasn’t able to grasp firmly the punchlines in the scene. So I did a little researching before watching it again :D
It appears that she is a priestess of the Church and serves as an objective mediator in the false Holy Grail War created by Avenger and Bazett Fraga McRemitz and, in the place of her absent father, Kotomine Kirei, as the Master of Lancer and Gilgamesh. In Carnival Phantasm Ex, she attempts to control the world using money with varying degrees of success.
Lastly, we have Bazett Fraga McRemitz, a main protagonist of Fate/Stay Night’s sequel, Fate/Hollow Atraxia along with Emiya Shirou. She was originally the master of Lancer, but due to unsuspecting events, she became the master of an unfamiliar servant, Avenger.
Here’s the download link from NyaaTorrents:

Carnival Phantasm Season 2
It’s a bit too late for me to post this, but it was only until recently that I was able to watch season 2 of Carnival Phantasm. I concur that the show is all fun and good, but my favorite characters aren’t getting much screen time :/ Though I guess that’s bound to happen if you merge two anime shows with a lot of characters together – some would just be reduced to make cameo appearances or something of sorts. I’m hoping that Shiki and Arcueid would have a comeback next season!
Anyway, Tsukihime gets a little left out this season as Fate/Stay Night would be pretty much the one taking the stage. The download links are below!
Carnival Phantasm Season 2 (720p)
Episode 5 / Episode 6 / Episode 7 / Episode 8 / Ilya’s Castle Special / Season EX
Here are a few screens from the show:
Gilgamesh takes advantage of cafe waitress Saber
Gilgamesh bows down to the dominating moe of Saber

Ilya’s Castle Special where the epic heroes must beat Berser-Car!

Time flies by so fast – so fast, that I didn’t even notice that my most awaited show from TypeMoon, Carnival Phantasm, is already on its third episode! I guess I’ve been too busy with stuff that the show’s premiere, which was aired last August 12, completely slipped my mind. Well, no matter. I’ve got three super–mega-awesome anime episodes to burn!
To those TypeMoon crazies who haven’t watched them yet, I bet you’re dying to see them now, right? Well, worry no more! The torrent links to the 1080p Full HD episodes are here right after the cut! Enjoy!
*Warning – Do not watch if you haven’t watched Shingetsutan Tsukihime or Fate/Stay Night, nor played Melty Blood yet. Chances are, you won’t be able to relate to the countless inside jokes portrayed in the show. This anime is for the fans of the TypeMoon franchises, after all.
