Review:

Ever since I’ve watched the OVA I’ve been out-blown by Kyousougiga. It had beautiful art and an insane concept. It was also the most animated anime I’ve come across. Therefore I was thrilled that it was getting a TV release and up to 10 episodes. I mean how more amazing can this get? I love how they didn’t change the concept much they simply explained the OVA. Like how the worlds came to be and how the creatures came to be. Also we got background stories of almost all the characters which was pretty interesting. The thing I loved most about this anime is we the beautiful animation but more over the thrilling action. It was always allover the place but within reason and it served the story right. It also had the right amount of drama and comedy, so its never boring. The ending of the anime however, gave me mixed feeling. It was good but it wasn’t what I expected or what I wanted to see. but it was good. So I highly recommend Kyousougiga for its one of the best animated animes out there and its worth checking out that’s for sure.

Review:

So after finishing the third season of the Legend of Korra, I must say that I’m impressed. The show keeps getting better and better, with a solid plot. I love how the character’s relationships improved and how the idea of Korra having a boyfriend almost disappeared. I do like Mako, very much. Nevertheless I’m glad they didn’t go on with the relationship it’s better that they are friends. I also love the fact that we got to see more of Lin’s other side. They give her very little credit. I’m also very happy for our beloved Bolin, for having Opel. Its good to see how the characters improved in this season. I love that Jinora is more recognized now, I know it started from the last season but I just love how far they are taking it. It is my favorite season by far. I love how the ending made me eager for more. It opened up many possibilities for the next season. It was also a better ending than Book 2’s.

mai-hime

Review:

Mai-Hime is a great anime. I was genuinely surprised about how good it was, I honestly didn’t expect it. It is a fairly or somewhat of an old anime. Nonetheless it is worth watching very good story and an interesting plot. It does have a somewhat of a Shoujo Ai aspect to it. I’m just giving you a heads up. The most interesting part for me was that each character had a certain depth to her/him. its not like other anime where the main character is the main focus. The was a dragon in the anime which turn up its rate for me. There were some pretty funny moments in the anime and some very dramatic ones that got me teary. Therefore its an excellent story. As for the animation it was pretty good for its time… as in fairly animated. The soundtrack was pretty cool as well. There wasn’t anything bad about the anime but it did lack something, You should check it out and judge for yourself.

Video Game Review: Toukiden

visual

Plot:

The setting is Nakatsu Kuni which has been protected since ancient times by “Slayers”. These warriors have banded together to purge demons and other forces of darkness for one thousand years, thus earning their title as “demon slayers”.

Eight years before the main story, time and the heavens distorted and the underworld emerged into the land of man. A great demon rose from its gap and plunged the land into an age of calamity. The Slayers fought tooth and nail against the demon and its army for seven grueling days; they barely succeeded in their mission to save humanity. The great conflict was later called the “Awakening”, and the Slayers whom fought in it were appointed to help restore the land’s political realm.

The protagonist is a part of the new wave of Slayers who rise to deal with the land’s never-ending demonic forces. They reside at Utakata Village, one of the last lines of defense in the war between demons and humanity.

Review:

Toukiden is one of the most entertaining games I’ve ever played. I love the setting and music of the game. The game has 6 maps that you will unlock during your missions. The story of the game last up to 5 chapters. After chapter 5 you’ll finish the story of the game but there are still a lot of mission that you will have to complete along with quests and relationship status. There are 6 NPC that you can take with you during missions they will fight along your side. You will also form bonds with all 12 NPCs. My favorite is Nagi, she’s the most helpful during boss(Large Oni) battles.

The game also has a verity of weapons that you can choose from and different armors. You get to customize your own character of course. The game also has a Online co-op and single mood. The online missions are different from the missions that you play in the offline mood. Of course there is also the Ad hoc mood.

Most importantly the game is very fun and a bit challenging if you don’t have the right team. The story of the game is actually deep I didn’t expect that. It took me 20hr to finish the game and I was taking my time. The game wont bore you that was the most important part for me. Though compared to Fire Emblem: Awaking, Toukiden is short.

Rate: 4.5/5

Movie Review: Maleficent

mal5

Summery:

A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land’s fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal – an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces a battle with the invading king’s successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom – and perhaps to Maleficent’s true happiness as well. (Written by Walt Disney Pictures)

Review:

I’m a fan of Maleficent, but I have to treat this as a movie so… First, I’m very glad that they made a movie about Maleficent. I hope they would make one about Ursula, that would be awesome. Back to the movie, the first thing you will notice is the amazing graphics and forest design. Also the verity of creatures living in The Moors. The second thing you’ll notice is how beautiful Angelina is as Maleficent. Then Aurora is born and you wouldn’t be able to ignore the babies cuteness. Probably halfway through the movie you’ll realize that no one had a decent conversion up until this point but who cares. The good fairies are funny.

Of course through out the movie they will show you some awesome battle scenes that by the end of the movie you realize that it was just another Disney movie… minus the music of course. The movie is amazing. I very much enjoyed it but that was exactly how it went. I do recommend it. I would give it a 4 if it wasn’t too storytelling based but it was. So enjoy the movie

Overall Rate: 3.9/5

Kyoukai-no-Kanata-Wallpaper1

Review:

Kyoukai no Kanata where shall I begin… Its amazing in a very unexpected way. The anime is both brutal and filled with fan service for a PG-13 rated anime. The story is very good both beautiful and sad.There are many amazing stuff in the anime I cant pin point one thing that made it special. To simplify it, its a Slice of life anime with a hint of comedy that takes an action turn of events. I must mention that the animation is gorgeous. Also the characters never failed to surprise me. I really enjoyed getting to know their powers and personalities. I believe that the director and writer are very creative specially with the way they laid down the ending. I totally respect them for that. I wished that the anime had more action in it or more like I wish that some fights have lasted longer. Nonetheless its a great anime.
