Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Episode Nine

Is It Wrong to Try to Pick up Girls in a Dungeon anime

It’s really nice that Bell has finally met Welf Crozzo. When it turned out that Bell’s armour was made by a blacksmith called Welf Crozzo I pictured him to be an ancient blacksmith who is quite advanced in years. It turns out that that red haired fella is the actually the Welf Crozzo. It did cross my mind that he could be Welf but I rubbished it as I thought he was going to be elderly. I was wrong. Haha.

I immediately took to Welf. I think he’s rather cool. Even if there were a few things he didn’t reveal straightaway I didn’t sense any particular dark secrets from him. It’s just that he’s had a bad stigma involving his family name. His philosophy and views on making weapons are really cool too. A weapon is not just a tool it’s a part of who you are. It’s a very cool philosophy indeed. =)

I think it was kind of Mama Mia to allow Ryu and Syr to accompany Bell and Lili to celebrate him moving up to level two. I know she’s a firm but fair lady but she is seriously someone you don’t want to be on the wrong side of. Ryu is able to hold her own against those nasty men but they literally ran in fear when Mia slammed that desk hard. In a way I wanted them to be disrespectful to Bell and Ryu as ultimately they will run with tails between their legs when Mia gets involved. Haha.

It was fun watching Hestia tease Bell. It was also funny how she managed to get him the nickname of “Little Rookie.” I can see why Hestia chose to go with a sensible nickname as it will be a nickname that will stick with Bell. In a way, I think Little Rookie fits Bell very well. It seems like another God called Takemikazuchi has someone in his familiar who has levelled up too. I wonder who this Yamato Mikoto is. I would want to research her but I don’t want to be spoiled so I will resist the urge to research. Haha.

Bell’s Argonaut skill looks pretty wicked. I get the feeling that that skill alone goes hand in hand with Realis Phrase. Realis Phrase makes Bell level up quicker and Argonaut is about gauging the level of the monster and this makes it easier for Bell to beat that monster.

It was fun to see how Welf melds his weapon. When he poured that liquid thing over the Minotaur thorn I actually thought it looked like a delicious melty chocolate. Haha. The weapon he created looks pretty cool. I’m not sure about the name though. Ushiwakamaru is a bit of a mouthful and I’ve already bit my tongue twice just trying to pronounce it. Haha.

I would have liked to see more of the Loki Familiar in action. I reckon more would have been said in the LN, especially from Aiz’s point of view. Everyone is obviously pumped up and hugely motivated at how quickly Bell reached level 2. I wonder when they will finish their expedition.

Bell, Hestia, Lili and Welf Endcard

Sometimes I don’t like watching this show straightaway as once I’ve watched it, it’s all done and over with. It is a shame.

The first volume of the manga version got 6th place in the New York Times this week. This makes me rather pleased. In my eyes Dungeon Girls (which I’ve often call this show to condense the title) deserves to be really succesful. =)  I would buy the manga but it’s on my birthday list as I think it would make a rather nice present. =)

No Game No Life Anime Review

No Game No Life

  1. SYNOPSIS

In the world of the internet a legendary gamer plays online and is undefeated in all games, the username is called Blank. The real identity of this username is actually two siblings, Sora and Shiro. When they deduced that the world they live in is one “crappy game” a “God” has emerged. He invited them to live and play in his world, a world where everything is decided by games. Humanity is the weakest race in this alternative world and it is up to Sora and Shiro to become the “Saviours of Humanity.”

Will Sora and Shiro be up to the task or will it finally be GAME OVER for the pair…

  1. REVIEW

WARNING: I MAY GIVE SPOILERS AWAY

I thought this anime was amazing and it’s definitely my kind of show. When I first watched No Game No Life I laughed a lot, but when I re-watched this I actually laughed much more than I did on the first occasion. And I enjoyed it just as much.

What I especially like, aside from the comedy, is the type of battles that take place. I always wanted to see a battle without the use of violence of physical punch up and No Game No Life offers just that. It’s like a battle of wits and intelligence as well as the use of mind games. Everything is literally decided through games and I really, really like that kind of concept. It’s unique but very refreshing.

The battles, which are never resolved with violence, are far from boring. I find them incredibly exciting and clever. There are scenes or little dialogue quips that often indicate a victory for Blank. When I’ve watched this show for the first I was amazed at how clever these hints were and I really like how the flow of the battles and story go. I like the sort of games that were played too. You could literally play any kind of game. Chess games suits Kurumi and the word game suits Jibril as she is the playful type who likes to mess around.

The last battle of the show was just brilliant and I especially liked how everyone kept on dodging and shooting each other. They kept on cancelling each other out. I was especially pleased that Izuna ended up having fun playing against Sora and Shiro. It’s nice to see that enemies can get along. Well, to be honest, I don’t think there are any enemies that exist in this show, they’re more like challengers. Izuna is a good example. She was playing a game to keep her country’s territory but I wouldn’t say she’s an enemy as she didn’t really do anything wrong. Her fellow countrymen didn’t do anything wrong either. They cheated in games but they could get away with it because they never get caught.

I like the concept that each chess piece represents certain life races, with Inmanity being in 16th place. I think Sora and Shiro want to conquer all the races so that when they come together, they can take on Tet, aka, God. He’s a cool customer Tet but I wonder if he held himself back when he played Blank in that chess game. All the other races are cool too. I especially like the elves and Fifi, but I also like Jibril and the Flugel race. It makes me curious what the higher ranked races are like, especially the Phantasm who appear to have their own travelling planet to stay on.

The Ex Deus no doubt will be incredibly strong but so far I get the impression that they’re acting like advisors for Tet. The Phantasm look to be a formidable race too. They have their own planet/land type thing that floats and travels in the air so they must be strong.

Sora and Shiro are actually quite interesting as individuals. For two people who do not blend in society well they certainly have adapted to this game world. It’s quite interesting how Sora was able to read situations and atmosphere as well as out-witting people. If someone lacks experience in society you would have thought he’d struggle to read the atmosphere and understand how people’s minds work. Perhaps he studied psychology and observed people. There’s a difference between observing people and interacting with them.

I seriously feel sorry for Steph. Sora and Shiro completely use her and humiliate her in many ways. It went to the point where they used her name as a derogatory term. Haha. I actually think Steph is the best character in this show and I really think she’s underrated and overlooked due to being a “Steph.” Whoops, I just insulted her by accident. Haha. I think it’s pretty funny how Steph’s Granddad resembles the same King from the deck of cards. Haha. =D

If Steph never existed in this show then Sora and Shiro would never have won many battles. And if it wasn’t for her Blank would have lost to Izuna. I think deep down I knew or more like I wanted, Steph to be the one that brings Blank victory. What I also like about Steph is her over the top reactions and when she was in a love-struck mode over Sora. I could literally not stop laughing when she banged her head on the tiles to the point where her head was bleeding. I was literally crying with laughter. =D

Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Episode Eight Thoughts

Is It Wrong to Try to Pick up Girls in a Dungeon anime This was definitely exciting to watch. It looks like Bell got a little jealous of Aiz or more like had his confidence knocked when it was announced that Aiz defeated a floor boss. In the books they’re referred to as a “Monster Rex.” And I think this desire to catch up to Aiz made him very determined to beat her in combat and he held his own for a while and managed to pull off a counter-attack. Eina is right, Bell shouldn’t compare himself to Aiz, but naturally, he is. Syr was cute when she hugged Bell’s arm and wanted a favour. That favour… is washing the dishes at the Benelovent Mistress. Haha. I wonder what she was thinking when she was listening to Bell and Ryu’s conversation. Surely she couldn’t possibly be jealous of Ryu. It turns out that Ryu was an adventurer before she became a waitress. That explains why she was able to intimidate that nasty man that chased after Lili and knocked Lily down with a simple coin throw. I did get the sense that she was an adventurer. I wouldn’t be surprised if Mia Grand was a former adventurer too. Ryu’s words definitely helped Bell and made him connect some dots, so to speak. I made a prediction that the Minotaur was going to strike during Loki Familia’s Expedition, and I was right, but I was partly wrong that Aiz wasn’t going to come. As soon as she heard that Bell was in trouble she literally took off. That was sweet of her, putting him ahead of the Loki Familiar’s expedition. They had members from the Hephaistos Familiar tagging along as well. This tells me that Loki and Hephaistos are on good friendly and/or business terms. My heart was really in my mouth when Bell was fighting with that Minotaur with all his might. I think seeing Aiz gave him the boost that he needed. Whilst Aiz was set in saving him she also understood why he wanted to fight alone and I actually think she believed in him. No one else from the Loki Familiar did as they don’t really know Bell as well as Aiz did. It seems like she helped a lot more than practice in combat. I was really pleased in the end when Bell beat that Minotaur, and he looked quite cool when he used that Minotaur’s sword. I was especially pleased that he won because Bete was being quite the jerk and it’s nice for him to get put in his place. Hopefully now Bell will be able to let go of his fear of Minotaurs. It’s partly good but partly bad. It’s partly good for the obvious reasons, but partly bad because… well, Freya. It was her plan all the long. I don’t know exactly what was said in the books but I do get the impression that she wanted Bell to conquer his fear, I.E., beat the Minotaur. If you look at it that way, she won. She appeared to be overjoyed with his growth and skills too. Initially when Bell suggested to Lili that he felt like he was being watched I thought it was because the raging Minotaur was on his way. Now that I think about it I actually think he felt Freya’s “stare.” I think he can sense when Freya looks at him from afar but doesn’t necessarily know that it’s her. It’s more like an intuition on his part. And Bell is S-Rank in all areas of Level One. Congratulations Bell. It looks like he will be out of commission for a good while though. I wonder if all elf people can read Hieroglyphs? I think Eina was able to read Bell’s status a little but it seems like Riveria was able to read the whole lot. I wonder what will happen now. What else is Freya going to do. I think it’s only a matter of time before she is exposed. Hestia kissing Bell on the forehead was both touching and cute. It was a nice and gentle way to end the episode. =)

Bell and Aiz Endcard 2 In my episode 7 thoughts blog I said that the Levels go from A-I with A being the strongest and I being the weakest. This is incorrect as the highest level is actually the letter S. This makes sense as the letter S is commonly the highest rank in anime and manga in terms of fighting ranks and battle skills/points. Thanks for reading. =) Sayonara.^^/ Ryan.

Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Episode Seven Thoughts

Is It Wrong to Try to Pick up Girls in a Dungeon anime

Ah, that Freya. It seems that she sent one of her men, possible a familiar member, Ottarl, to the battlefield to fight a Minotaur. It seems like Ottarl was deliberately trying to frustrate a Minotaur to the point of rage where that Minotaur would get strong through the pit of rage. What is Freya plotting? This is evidently connected with Bell as she will do everything she can to have him. But, why get her hands on a Minotaur?

I have a theory… perhaps Freya knows that Bell had that incident with a Minotaur and he’s holding onto that bad memory. So, Freya deliberately got Ottarl to pick up a raged up Minotaur and will force that same one to fight Bell. That way, if Bell fights that Minotaur and beats it then perhaps he’ll be able to let go of his traumatic situation from weeks ago. Either that or she wants him to get killed so she can go to heaven and make a claim to him. I doubt she will try to kill Hestia again.

This episode was definitely going to be about Aiz but I never anticipated that Aiz would train Bell in combat, let alone interact with him. In a way I’m glad we haven’t found out about Aiz’s past yet as I rather see her interact and develop a nice relationship with Bell.

Naturally, Bell tried to run away after seeing the person he admired. I know exactly what he’s going through when it comes to crushes. You don’t know where to look when someone you like or admire looks at you right in the face. I don’t think I would run away though… well, not now. Haha.

I did notice one thing though, something which I nearly overlooked. Bell bumped into Aiz’s bum, accidentally, when she cut him off from running away. Initially I thought it was just right place, right time for Bell. However, I suddenly remembered that Aiz doesn’t allow her Goddess, Loki, to touch her anywhere, especially her bum. Yet, she didn’t bat an eyelash when Bell touched her, albeit, accidentally. This tells me that she’s comfortable with Bell.

Aiz training Bell was a nice moment. It does seem like she is a bit of an airhead, something which I suspected deep down. I get the impression that she wanted to avoid combat training with him but was left with no choice after… well, having no more choices to choose from. Haha. It was pretty funny when she kept on knocking him out. And every time he gets knocked down he would wake up on her lap… that was funny but it might do him good if he stopped screaming for once. He’s going to give himself a sore throat. XD

What was that sudden afternoon nap all about? It was like the battle of wills, I think, of Bell’s conscience. The Grandpa represented his Devil side and Hestia represented his God side. However, I’m glad he didn’t kiss Aiz in the end as that would have left a bad taste in my mouth. If he did have to touch her no matter what than I would give Aiz a taste of her own medicine and have her head resting on my lap. Of course, Bell wouldn’t think of that.

I do beg the question… was Aiz genuinely asleep? Initially, when she said “wait” I thought she was just sleep talking. However, perhaps she was fully aware what was happening and wasn’t prepared to receive Bell’s kiss? She did remind me a little bit of Snow White when she was lying down with her hands on her ribcage.

I did fear for Bell when Aiz went to the booth where Hestia works. It was only natural that Hestia would get upset and jealous. Bell really did let his guard down. On a side note, I always thought that Bell would treat Aiz to something to dinner first, rather than the other way around. Hestia was adorable as ever when she’s jealous. Not only is she competing against Lili but now Aiz. She does have a point though… Bell is spotted with a different girl in every scene. Haha.

I’m going to venture a big guess here and say that that Minotaur will most likely attack when Aiz goes on that expedition with the rest of her familiar. That way Bell has to fight that Minotaur without her help. Plus, he’s learned a great deal from Aiz and looks much stronger and more skilled in physical combat.

Hestia's Evil Grin

So far the anime have not really explained how the levels work. I think it’s probably sensible as I personally found it a little complicated when I read the book the first time. I think it goes like this… Bell is a Level One adventurer.

Adventurers are ranked in five areas; Strength, Defence, Utility, Agility and Magic.

You get Battle Points, so to speak, in the form of letters and numbers. I is the lowest, A is the highest. If you are on a Level 1 I-999 in Agility and your God/Goddess just levelled you up then your Agility will probably be something like Level 1 H-12. It depends what you did in the dungeon. Bell tends to get high scores in the Agility department as he manages to dodge monster attacks. He levels up quickly in all departments due to his Realis Phrase ability.

It will be interesting to see what happens when he reaches the level A-999 in Agility. When he reaches Level Two in Agility he would probably start from I again as you would work your way up through each Level. But, does this mean that Bell will become a Level Two in all areas automatically? Or, will he just be a Level Two in Agility and Level One in the rest of his attributes. I haven’t read the rest of the Light Novel Volume Two yet so I’m not sure if these questions have already been answered.

Whatever the case, I’m enjoying the anime very, very much. =)

Thanks for reading. =)

Applying For a Passport

UK Passport Cover

Last Monday I went to an interview to apply for a British Passport.

I was a little nervous as I got the letter back from the Passport people saying that I was required to have an interview, which was not really a problem. It was my first time that I ever went for a passport interview. It was going to be a completely new experience, however, on the leaflet it says that if you have a disability and you need someone to be in the interview with you, please let them know. Mum came with me as I don’t travel by myself and in case I got anxious and didn’t understand the procedure.

As is so happens I totally forgot about the arrangement and only remembered the day before. Haha. So, the anticipation build up wasn’t as bad as it usually was. I can probably handle situations better when I don’t have too long to think about it.

I didn’t really know where this place was but I enjoyed having a good walk around in the warm sun. We found the place eventually and I went into the reception area with my parents.

We actually learned, there and then, that nobody was allowed in the booth with me. I started to get nervous at that point. The problem wasn’t me going in on my own it was the lack of understanding shown by the receptionists. This did not fill me with confidence. She was also rude to my Mum and was a little patronising towards her.

My Mum tried to explain why she would go in with me, not to speak on my behalf but to re-word questions if I didn’t understand them. This is a big occurrence in my life where I don’t always understand what people say, especially when they generalise. However, the receptionist wasn’t really listening or rather she was too busy enforcing the rules.

So far I wasn’t impressed with how unwelcoming the passport people were. If the receptionist was not very accommodating then how accommodating would the interviewer be? I started to lose confidence in the fact that they weren’t going to consider my needs. It seems like they don’t really cater for people with Learning Difficulties or Autism.

The interview lady eventually called me in and she was actually really nice and friendly. By the way that she was talking it seemed like she was more than familiar with people with special needs. She was very open-minded and she did seem experience when it came to communicating with people like me. All the interview questions were very simple to understand so I didn’t have any trouble answering her questions.

I spent about 25 minutes in there and I felt actually ok by the end of it. I was somewhat surprised how well I handled the situation, especially when the receptionist dropped the bombshell that I wasn’t allowed to bring someone in with me. I could have buzzed Mum to come in if I wanted but I was doing ok by myself.

I handled that situation really well actually but I was disappointed with the lack of consideration that the staff did show. It stresses in the leaflet that if you have Learning Difficulties and you need someone to come in with you then to let the passport people know. In a way, I did find this misleading. If it was clear that I wasn’t allowed to have support in my interview, then that would have been fine. But if it’s not ok, why mention it in the leaflet in first place?

I was more disappointed and bewildered by the principal of the staff not accommodating my needs, rather than going in by myself for the interview. However, it’s all done and finished now and I’m certainly losing no sleep over it. =)

Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Episode Six Thoughts

Is It Wrong to Try to Pick up Girls in a Dungeon anime

So, it seems like everyone in the Soma Familiar are addicts and they can’t get enough of that wine. It does make me think of people who get high on drugs but here they’re getting high on wine. That’s why they’re materialistic, as is Lili, to some extent. The difference here is that Lili wants to get enough money so she can leave the Soma Familiar once and for all. I knew there was a genuine reason why Lili was being deceitful and I didn’t have it in me to dislike her. Neither, it seemed, did Bell.

I did get the impression that Lili did not bear any bad feelings towards Bell she was really desperate to leave her Familiar. When her familiar abandoned her I was eagerly waiting for Bell to come and rescue her, and he did just in time. I was pleased about that. His new Firebolt magic has really come in handy, and he used it just in time to save her.

Of course, she was feeling incredibly guilty and judged Bell for treating her nicely. I get the impression that Bell didn’t really have a reason for saving Lili, except that he wanted to. But when he was questioned he just gave her answers just for the sake of it. Sometimes people do thing for no apparent reason, and Bell just saved her just because he wanted to. It was rather emotional seeing Lili pour her heart out like that. I wonder if Hestia will allow her into her own Familiar and allow her to be Bell’s Supporter. In my opinion, she will accept her into her Familiar, albeit reluctantly as she will probably see Lili as competition. Haha.

It’s great seeing Aiz. Loki teased her about her “man running off.” I don’t imagine Aiz being the vocal type so I imagine Loki could foresaw Bell rolling away when she was “upgrading” Aiz’s level status. I’m really certain that Aiz does harbour some sort of affection for Bell and did seem insensitive over the prospect that he’s avoiding her. It was great when she helped Bell out with those Orcs and it appeared that she found Bell’s arm protector and knife on the floor.

It looks like the next episode is going to be about Aiz. I really don’t think she’ll meet Bell again anytime soon, I think they’ll meet right at the end of this series. I predict that we’ll probably get a small background and learn more about Aiz and how she earned the nickname, “Sword Princess.”

Then again… Aiz still needs to give Bell back his Hestia Knife and the arm guard he got from Eina. Perhaps Aiz will give it to him in person. However, I personally think that she’ll give it to Riveria or someone like Syr to give it to Bell instead. Who knows what will happen but I do know that I’m enjoying this anime a lot and it’s a shame that the episodes have to end so quickly.

Avengers: Age of Ultron Film Review

Avengers Age of Ultron

  1. GOING OUT

I knew that I really wanted to go and watch Avengers: Age of Ultron at the cinema this year, but was I going to go? Eventually, I decided to go to the last showing at a local cinema with Mum. We both really like Avengers and fancy to go and watch it whilst it was still showing.

I was somewhat optimistic. As last Thursday was the last showing and it was the day of the Election I anticipated that there wouldn’t be many people at the cinema. I was really nervous when I was going out as I didn’t know what would happen. I was more hoping than anticipating for a small crowd. I was fairly relaxed when I arrived there. I ordered a Full Blast lemon flavour drink and took my seat. Initially we were the only ones there but a few minutes before the actual showing more people came. Eventually there were around 20 people in their seats, including me. I felt ok as they were sitting a distance from me.

  1. FILM REVIEW

All of the best parts for me were the action and the comedy moments.

I thought it was funny how Captain America’s foul mouth became a regular occurrence. The other funny moments involved people trying to up Thor’s Hammer and the character Ultron.

I actually thought Ultron was amusing and it seems like he saw memories of all the avengers and took on most of their personalities. However, his personality is dominated by Tony Stark as he was the one who was trying to create him. I think Ultron is a complex individual and his intentions for humans to “evolve” are good but very twisted. I actually think he’s similar to Magneto in many aspects but probably not as complex as him. Ultron wasn’t doing bad things for the sake it, very much like Magneto.

I was a bit worried when Ultron did whatever he did to J.A.R.V.I.S. by trying to hack him or take him over. However, it turns out that J.A.R.V.I.S. didn’t get completely put down by Ultron and eventually became Vision with the help of Tony, Hulk and Thor. Vision became really cool and a bit of a complex character in his own right. I always wanted J.A.R.V.I.S. to do more as I think he really adds a lot to the story, and by becoming Vision it must have been rewarding for him. =)

It was simply humorous when Vision, or J.A.R.V.I.S. picked up Thor’s hammer and gave it to him casually. It sort of makes sense since that weird crystal thing is one of the most powerful gem crystal things in the whole universe. I think that gem combined with Tony’s technology created a brilliant humanoid. Vision said one of the best lines, “I was born yesterday.” I’ve never heard that line used in that way before. I was going to use that in my story but Marvel and Vision beat me to it. Haha. Not only did he have a good personality but his moves and powers were simply brilliant and with the help of Thor and Iron Man took out Ultron. =)

One of the best moments and fights for me had to be when Iron Man fought Hulk. He used that suit, Veronica, which was intentionally designed to keep the Incredible Hulk at bay. It was a bit like the Thunderbirds moment when his suit, Veronica, came from space and became a battle suit. I never known a satellite could also perform as a battle suit and I think it’s awesome. =D It was pretty intense and whilst I was really rooting for Iron Man to win I also didn’t want to see Hulk delve into any more despair. Luckily, Iron Man knocked him out before he could suffer anymore.

I was on the lookout for Quicksilver and Scarlett Witch. I knew they appeared in the Captain America: Winter Soldier film but for the life of me I couldn’t spot them anywhere. Of course, it all clicked when they appeared in this film. I knew they were siblings but I didn’t think they were the “twins” that appeared in the second Captain America film. I felt a bit daft for not realising that sooner but hindsight is a wonderful thing. =) I like them both. Scarlett Witch has those good abilities and Quicksilver can run really fast. A bit sad that they killed him off in the end, but… is he really dead? Or, are they trying to make us think that he’s dead?

Seeing Scarlett Witch and Quicksilver in this film makes me wish that the X-Men, especially Magneto, were part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I know in the Marvel Comics Iron Man goes toe to toe with Magneto and Magneto asks Iron Man to find his children, Scarlett Witch and Quicksilver. It would be nice if the Dad could meet his children but so far that won’t happen anytime soon. However, in the X-Men related films Magneto does meet Quicksilver in X-Men: Days of Future Past, but Scarlett Witch doesn’t appear in that film.

Anyway, the action was really exciting from Hulk busting people up, Thor using his lightning like a god and normal people like Captain America and Black Widow fighting with cool realistic stunts. Scarlett Witch’s telekinesis and hypnotic skills are great to see but I still like Iron Man and his suit of armour.

Black Widow’s romantic developed with Hulk was a little weird as I don’t really recall them getting close. As I recall Hulk went ballistic and chased after her. Haha. Perhaps I’ve missed something or there were hints in The Avengers Assemble film that I missed or forgot. I don’t disapprove of them as a couple, I just found it odd. =)

It’s great to see Nick Fury or rather, Samuel L. Jackson in the film and he helped out rescuing the people from that floating city. It’s nice to see Maria Hill as well and I’m pleased that Hawkeye became more relevant. I never knew he had a family and that secret worked well for him. =) I would have thought Pepper would have made an appearance but she was just mentioned. It’s disgraceful, haha. It’s great seeing War Machine and Falcon making small cameos, I never thought they would appear in the actual Avengers films.

I’m not sure who that villain at the end is supposed to be. Did he appear in Guardians of the Galaxy? I personally think he’s someone completely new as I don’t really recall seeing him at all. I don’t think he’s from out of space as that arm looks like is a human technology. In fact, I think it looks similar to Iron Man’s arm. Is he connected with that Hydra group that appeared at the beginning of the film?

Overall, I really, really enjoyed this film. I was slightly nervous as I thought Tony Stark was going to be the villain in the eyes of his Avengers compatriots as he was creating a weapon of mass destruction. Plus, Ultron’s personality is mostly based on Tony and Tony is not exactly the most selfless individual you would ever see. He’s also a mad scientist so he’s not the most sensible to begin with. In the end I’m glad all ended well… ignoring Quicksilver’s “death”.
