Anime Review: Blood Lad

url Summary: Staz is the vampire boss of a section of the demon world, but he has little interest in human blood. He’s more infatuated with Japanese culture.

However, while Staz deals with an intruder on his turf, the oblivious Fuyumi is killed by a monster and becomes a wandering ghost.

BloodLad_poster

Review:

I was looking forward to Blood Lad, and it wasn’t disappointing. It was a bit too short though. the anime is only 10 episodes. They were awesome 10 episodes though. The most interesting thing about the anime were the fights. The characters were pretty interesting as well, specially wolf & Liz. The anime is very entertaining. Its funny, a little dramatic and most importantly its full of action!

The only problem was that I’ve read the manga so I couldn’t help but compare it to the manga. The anime didn’t do the manga any justice. So I recommend If you liked the anime, go and read the manga. The anime is good but the manga is great!

Tiger...Bunny.full.578312

Review:

When I read the title of that anime I imagined something different. The anime was recommended to me by a lot of people. They all said it was good, they didn’t mention anything else about it. It was good!!

Tiger...Bunny.full.576718
I so regret not watching this anime when it was first released. The title got me fooled. It’s the most refreshing anime I’ve seen for a while now. By refreshing I mean great action, right amount of comedy and drama, and most importantly it was based on good morals and doing the right thing. The anime is about a superhero show, thus it’s absolutely interesting. I liked how all the anime talks about all the heroes not just Tiger and Barnaby. Also the anime had a crazy ending, totally unexpected. There wasn’t anything that I disliked but, it left me wanting more. Even though the ending was good. I highly recommend it you won’t be disappointed.

Summary:

Billionaire Tono Ryuichi, the President of Tono Foods Group, a giant food company, recently acquired two young female assassins from the Mexican cartel. Sui and Ai came from unimaginably poor childhoods and was given a choice between killing people or selling their body. They chose the former and went through an inconceivably extreme training and, at 17 years old, they have become one of the deadliest assassins in the world. They are absolutely obedient to their master and they are given the task of finding the killer that poisoned Ryuichi’s wife and child. They begin attending high school to blend into society and, at the same time, read and study which helps them become even more deadlier on the field. Sui and Ai encounter Matoba Imari who is a high school assassin herself and may be more skilled than both of them. But unlike the two, Imari just wants to lead a normal life. Whatever Imari wishes for her life is not their problem because the only thing Sui and Ai feeds on are bloodthirst and a challenge. (Source: MangaHelpers)

First Impression:

This manga is the sequel of Ordinary ±. In this manga 2 new characters prevail and they are as sick as Imari. The manga is by Takahashi, Keitarou who made Jormungand. So the art is amazing and so is the concept of the manga since its about Assassins. The manga is so intense with amazing action. So far only two chapters are translated in English. I so can’t wait to read chapter 3. Also it seems like more assassins will show up in the up coming chapters. It’s totally exciting I can’t wait to read more!!

P.S. If you’re not familiar with Ordinary click on the hyperlink above to read its review.

Manga Review: Gantz – Manga Olympics for Bloggers (Seinen/Shounen Round 2)

20130721-215313.jpg

Summary:

Thought your life was bad? Sometimes, death is worse. There is no salvation, peace, nor god waiting to receive you into their care. But wait, a god? Maybe you are talking about that big black ball stuck in the room with you. Now you are thrown into a game, fighting green aliens and robot monsters for the chance to survive.
When Kei Kurono is killed, he thus finds himself caught in such a game; a test of his skills, morals and will to survive. His life is not his own, his death spat and trampled upon over and over again. What happens if he does not listen? God knows.
A word of warning: Gantz is not for the faint-hearted, but neither is it as simple as it looks. Gore, rape and violence is rampant, as are portrayals of greed, violence, and all the ugliness that one sees in society today. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

Serialization: Young Jump

20130721-215513.jpg

Review:

Firs of all thank you Sir Hiroya Oku for 13 amazing years of Gantz. I still can’t believe it ended… I kept looking for one more page after the last page of the last chapter. So yeah, I’m a huge Gantz fan. It’s an amazing manga if you haven’t checked it out, you should.

20130722-024742.jpg

Now for the actual review. Gantz concept is totally unique. The manga Follows Kei Kurono & Masaru Katou, they are basically the main characters. Due to the concept of the story a lot of characters appear in the manga. The manga is amazing. I loved the story up until the Osaka Arc. It was magical. Though the last arc which is the catastrophe arc, was totally weird. The manga does develop greatly to reach that arc, but the fights weren’t as good as the previous arcs.
The action is absolutely brutal through out the whole manga, I’m not saying that the last arc was bad. It was just a little disappointing for me. Also, I’ve noticed that the whole focus was back to Kurono. I know that Nishi and Sakurai were also main topics in that arc, though it always fell back to Kurono. To be completely honest here, I was disappointed and didn’t like that fact. One more thing I didn’t like in the manga was the fact that we didn’t see most of the characters in action. Specially Reika, did she ever fight?
Supposedly she got 100 point and fought bravely against so many tough Aliens. Though we didn’t see any of that, did we? It was always Kurono this, Kurono that, and her looking pretty in the background of the page… I mean seriously? Well, even with all that its still my favorite manga and it’s the best and brutalist manga out there. Also the story is amazing. I like the idea of Gantz. Is it recommended? Yes of course.

Review:

I really enjoyed this anime. It had a strong beginning and keeps you interested till the end. The ending was very sad for me. Though i don’t hate sad ending. I like the fact that the Mecha had its own personality it’s something that I haven’t seen in Mecha anime before. I also liked the fact that through out the anime you actually see how the main character adapts with the new environment he’s in. There was some awesome action going on there. Not to mention, I loved the character design as well as the animation. The story was amazing, with a sad ending. *sobs*

20130710-184346.jpg
I almost forgot… There were a lot of unexpected things that happened in the anime which makes it that much more interesting to watch!! I totally recommend it! You won’t regret watching it!

Anime Review: DevilLady

20130707-023609.jpg

Rating: R+ – Mild Nudity

Review:

I know that this is an old anime, but I just watched it last month. I read part of its manga as well. The anime is different from the manga, it’s like an alternative version. I really liked that fact, for so many reasons that I won’t mention. :p
I have to warn you first, that there is nudity in the anime and mature content “story wise”. So, at first the main character seems strong, yet the human side of her seems fragile. The art of the anime was great. Also, the main character’s beauty showed, and a lot of girls fell for her. Which is basically why its themed yuri. There was a lot of action and bloodshed in the anime. Oh, and the opening theme song of song of the anime was amazing I could listen to that song all day!! There was something I didn’t quite understand in the anime… Jun “the main character” seemed to walk around and kiss guys for no reason… I mean a guy appears out of nowhere she would share a kiss with him, and then you never see that guy again… What’s up with that?! Other than that the story was solid. So, good story, good sound track, good art, and it’s a very good anime.

First Impression:

I was intrigued by the manga when I first read its title. I didn’t know anything about the manga when I first read it. I’ve only concluded that its interesting and I wanna read more of it. As I was reading I kinda recognized the drawing style it was similar to Sun-Ken Rock. So, it turned out to be the same author. Boichi is one of the best Seinen manga artist/author so I wasn’t surprised. The first chapter starts as a slice of life. It’s basically the life of a NEET. Then a women comes in the picture when everything changes and the story becomes Ecchi, Interesting no? Now that you got the story, time for some action. It’s a perfect story why are you still reading this and not the manga already? :o

20130529-180740.jpg

Review:

I’ve always been an Aladdin fan, so I was instantly attracted to this anime. I must say it exceeded my expectations. Basically Magi is inspired by Arabic literature characters, such as Alibaba, Sindibad, And so on. The fantasy there and the way the plot build up are amazing. There is magic everywhere and not in a cheesy matter. The plot is pretty outstanding, I’ve never seen a shounen anime as good as this one. I love how Aladdin is not always the hero or the main focus in the anime. You get to see all the characters stories. I also liked the fact that Sindibad is important in the anime so is morgana and Alibaba. The art and the fighting scenes are incredible. I strongly recommend the anime and am eagerly waiting for the second season which is gonna be released fall 2013.

Movie Review: Fast & Furious 6

20130529-151723.jpg

Summary:

Hobbs has Dom and Brian reassemble their crew in order to take down a mastermind who commands an organization of mercenary drivers across 12 countries. Payment? Full pardons for them all. (Source: IMDB)

General Information:

Directed by: Justin Lin
Written by: Chris Morgan
Genre: Action, Thriller, Crime
Release date(s): May 7, 2013 (London premiere), May 24, 2013 (International)
Running time: 130 minutes
Country: United States
Language: English

Review:

After watching Fast 5 I was incredibly excited for Furious 6. Though the movie was a bit disappointing. I expected there to be more car racing, but there was more car chasing. Also, there was a lot of exaggerative action… Which I didn’t like. Not to mention I watched this movie in Cinescape kuwait, which means there was a lot of censoring. It made the movie kinda difficult to understand. If your a Fast & Furious fan check it out. If not don’t bother!
