kill-la-kill-anime-hd-wallpaper-1920x1200

Review:

Kill la kill is an anime that’s created by the same team that created Gurren Lagann. Kill la kill is absolutely ridiculous and all over the place. I don’t mean that in a bad way though. The anime is hilarious and yes I mean incredibly funny. It is also very chaotic. You may forget at some points in the anime that it has a story, but I assure you it does have a story and its sending a very strong message. That’s why its hectic and all over the place. I believe that’s the only way to convey that message and they did a great job at it. The anime is about people being prisoners to their cloths, and Matoi Ryuuko is trying to change that. I believe in the message that the anime is trying to convey. cloths have no power over you, you have the power over your cloths. I cant go into much detail to explain this, I rather you would watch the anime and tell me whether or not you agree with me. Kill La Kill is no Gurren Lagann but its still a masterpiece.

Anime Review: Golden Time

Golden-Time-Episode-13

Summary:
Tada Banri, a newly admitted student at a private law school in Tokyo, found himself completely lost after the opening ceremony, trying to find his way to the freshman orientation. At that moment, he ran into another lost freshman from the same school, Yanagisawa Mitsuo, and they hit it off at once. Somehow arriving at their intended goal just on time, there appeared in front of the two a beautiful girl holding a bouquet of roses. The girl then whacked Mitsuo across the face with the bouquet and handed the flowers over to him. “Freshman, congratulations,” was all she said, and then left. The stylish, well dressed, perfect woman that had swung at Mitsuo was his childhood friend, Kaga Kouko. As children they had promised to marry each other one day, fulfilling their dreams. In order to escape from her, Mitsuo had gone out secretly and taken the examination for this well known private college, but now she showed up in the freshman orientation hall. She too had taken the law school entrance examination, catching up with him there. (Source: Baka-Tsuki)

golden-time-6

Review:

Golden Time is one of the most outstanding romance anime I’ve come across. It is different from your usual romance story but in a good way. The character development in the anime was amazing. Also the way they influenced each other. It felt more realistic than any other romance anime I’ve come across. The anime did address the issue of memory loss in a beautiful way, I know that sounds wrong but you must see it to believe it.

There was also an outstanding female heroin which made the show more fun to watch. I think that the anime was implying that life goes and and one shouldn’t be stuck in the past. The ending of the anime made me happy and a little sad at the same time. There was this one character that I wanted to know more about or wanted her to be happy, I don’t know… she was smiling though. I think that should be enough. Anyhow Golden Time is an amazing anime it would be a waste not to watch it. Highly recommended.

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.

scans_steins_gate_fuka_ryouiki_no_deja_vu_1366x768_78069

Summary:
The film takes place one year after the events of the anime series. After going through a painstaking journey across multiple “World Lines” due to the invention of “D-Mail,” text messages that can be sent to the past, Rintarou Okabe has assumedly landed in the “Steins Gate” World Line, in which none of his friends would have to die and a future ruled by SERN due to the invention of a time machine no longer exists. However, Rintarou soon starts feeling the side effects of his constant time traveling across multiple World Lines, which soon builds up and causes Rintarou to suddenly vanish from existence, with only Kurisu Makise, the girl who he had saved thanks to his efforts, remembering him through déjà vu. It is now up to Kurisu to find a way to get Rintarou back. (Source: Wikipedia)

Review:

If you have watched the anime you know that it follows Okabe Rintarou. Similar to the anime the movie talks about time travel though unlike the anime It actually follows Makise Kurisu. If you haven’t watched the anime and you are planing to, the movie wont ruin the anime for you. The movie was more of a romance drama than the anime. Nonetheless it was absolutely beautiful. The movie’s main focus was on Kurisu-san and how she’s trying for Okabe. It was very good and I’ve very much enjoyed it. But compared to other animated movies it wasn’t great. As a Steins;Gate side story it was perfect.

What I’m trying to say is if you are new to the series you will enjoy the movie. If you are a fan you’ll love the movie because of its different prospective. I’m a fan and I loved it.

Anime Review: Sasami-san@Ganbaranai

sasami_san_ganbaranai___06___large_end_card

Summary:

The Japanese call them hikikomori—people who’ve become so withdrawn socially that they refuse to leave their homes for weeks and even months at a time. For Sasami Tsukuyomi, who’s attempting to pass her first year of high school despite being a shut in, it’s more than just a word. Fortunately though, she lives with her older brother Kamiomi, who just happens to be a teacher at the school Sasami is supposed to attend. Not to mention, her “Brother Surveillance Tool” which lets her view the outside world via her computer and will, theoretically, allow her to readjust to interfacing with people again. What it mainly does, however, is let her view her brother’s interactions with the three very odd Yagami sisters, who inexplicably seem to have had their ages reversed and have various types of “interest” in Kamiomi. And then things start to get really weird… Magical powers? Everything turning into chocolate? Is life via the web warping Sasami’s brain, or is it the universe that’s going crazy?

sasami_san_ganbaranai___05___large_end_card

Review:

At first I was interested in Sasami-san@Ganbaranai because Sasami is a hikikomori. Like in the first episode how she was writing her fictional story… It was epic how the events of the episode kept turning. Then there was the Yagami sisters, they made the show very fun to watch. In short I enjoyed Sasami-san@Ganbaranai very much. The anime was full of action, unnatural events, comedy, and pretty emotional issues that were addressed there. It was very interesting to watch pretty unpredictable and they keep surprising you in each and every episode. It got pretty dark at times… Like very dark but it didn’t ruin the story. The anime wasn’t great but it was very good. I wasn’t impressed with the ending, it didn’t do the anime justice. Overall very good anime.

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.
