[Sora Iro] Kiniro Mosaic - 01[720p][0B41CB85].mkv_snapshot_20.33_[2013.07.12_21.12.45]

Review:

Kiniro Mosaic is a very entertaining anime about a British girl that goes to study in Japan. The Japanese main character is fascinated with the English culture while the British girl is fascinated with the Japanese culture. That’s what the comedy in this anime revolve around. Also since the main characters are all girls and its a show about friendship, there is always these yuri moments. The anime was hilarious at first but then it got kinda funny. The anime is not bad nor Great. There is nothing there that it would make it a must watch but it is entertaining. If you want something easy to watch and would make you laugh you should watch this.

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.

Review:

I finished watching Oregairu a while ago, around the beginning of the month to be exact. The anime is a comedy as it says in the genre. It’s pretty funny, and entertaining. I think they missed calling it psychology, because the main character seems to hate the wold and is always opinionated. The anime has a very interesting point of view on things and I really enjoyed it.
Yukino is the best ever. I’m totally a fan. She adds this charm to the anime. Totally adore her. Over all the anime was very good. It surprised me a lot of times. It was never predictable. It always kept me wanting more. So you see it’s awesome! I highly recommend it!

Review:

This manga had such an innocent story. Its so cute, and I couldn’t stop myself from reading it weakly. I can’t say it’s your typical Shoujo Ai, because the story was actually beautiful. It’s about breaking through people’s walls. Also this was one of the few manga’s with a lot of fillers. I mean there is chapter 1.5, 2.5, 3.5…..etc. I liked the flow of this manga. Also the only thing that was actually close to making that manga a Shoujo Ai, is that picture above the review. Other than that it was a nice story about friendship. Is it recommended?! Yes go read it.

Anime Review: Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai.

20130707-040436.jpg

Summary:

Kyousuke Kousaka, a normal seventeen-year-old high school student, hasn’t gotten along with his younger sister, Kirino, in years. For longer than he can remember, Kirino has ignored his comings and goings and looked at him with spurning eyes. It seemed as if the relationship between Kyousuke and his sister, now fourteen, would continue this way forever.
One day, however, Kyousuke finds a DVD case of a magical girl anime entitled Hoshikuzu Witch Meruru (Stardust Witch Meruru), which had fallen into the entranceway of his house. To Kyousuke’s surprise, inside the case is a hidden adult video game titled Imouto to Koishiyo! (Love with Little Sister!). Kyousuke attempts to fish out the culprit who dropped the case by bringing up the topic of magical girl anime at the family dinner table. All that comes out is a strong negative reaction from his parents, especially his anti-otaku policeman father.
That night, Kirino bursts into Kyousuke’s room and, in perhaps the first conversation she has initiated with him in years, says they “have things to talk about.” Kirino brings Kyousuke to her room and shows him an extensive collection of moe anime and lolicon bishoujo games she has been collecting in secret.(Source: Wikipedia)

Review:

How the hell did this anime turn into Harem? TT^TT, I really liked the first season of Ore no Imouto and I was excited to see the second season but…
Ore no Imouto, is a funny anime. The concept of the anime was so surprising which is why I liked the first season. I like the character design, and I specially like Ayase. I like how the characters keep arguing about things and the fact that the main character is an Otaku. The announcement of the second season was awesome. It’s like “Kirino is back” and that was it. In the second season the anime took a different turn. It was basically a brother complex/harem. I don’t mind Harem but I really hate the brother complex thingy. Which kinda made me dislike the anime a little. I’m glad that I finished the second anime because everything was properly explained. I have to say this though… Kyousky you lucky bastard. *SPOILER ALERT* I still can’t believe that Ayase fell for him. That been said… How the hell did this anime turn into Harem? TT^TT

Review:

I believe this anime is all about fan service. The characters are so cute, as you can see in the pictures above. Though the story is kinda weird. Basically, it’s about “spirits”, an organization that fights against them and another organization that’s based on a gal game which is kinda with and against them. The main character is kind of a perv and all the girls fall for him still. Was the story great? No, but for a Harem anime it had a decent story. Am I excited that there is a second season? Yes, for so many reasons. Oh, I almost forgot… The anime was actually good, and there was something good in the story. Not great, just good. Is the anime a must watch? No, though it is a nice anime to watch. So if your interested, watch it. If not, then don’t.

Anime Review: Yuyushiki

20130628-022944.jpg

Yuyushiki

Review:

This is one of the most hilarious anime I’ve seen, and the funniest anime this year. Yuzuko, and Yukari are high, and they both love Yui. Wait, everybody is in love with Yui for some reason. Yuzuko is a smart student, yet she’s an idiot according to Yui that is and the funniest character in the anime. Since the anime is a slice of life and based on a 4-koma manga, the story wasn’t flawless. It means that in every episode bits and pieces of a lot of events but that only makes it funnier. This anime is too self aware. Oh, and it reminded me of Big Bang Theory, even though they are different in many ways I couldn’t help but remember Big Bang Theory. It’s like a gayer version of it. Nonetheless, I dare you to watch this anime without laughing even once. Now, go watch it.

Anime Review: Little Busters!

20130529-153524.jpg

Summary:

When tragedy struck Riki Naoe as a child, he was rescued from grief over his parent’s deaths when four other kids “recruited” him for their group—the “Little Busters.” Now in high school, Riki and the other Busters are still fast friends, and though their vision of being heroes for justice may have faded, they’d still do anything for each other. Which is why Riki is now on TWO special missions. The not so secret one: recruiting new members so the Busters can form a baseball team. Preferably FEMALE recruits, as the current dude/babe ratio is an inconvenient 4 to 1. The OTHER mission, though… That’s the strange one. Because Riki and Rin, the group’s singular girl, are receiving odd messages, delivered by cats, concerning the existence of a “secret world” and assigning them tasks they have to complete. Were their youthful dreams of being crusaders not so fanciful after all? Or is there something even more vital at stake? Between steeling his courage to talk to girls, dealing with his own narcolepsy and facing his feelings concerning Rin, Riki may just need the strength of a superhero to solve the ultimate mystery of the Little Busters!

Review:

Little busters! is an anime about friendship. It kinda reminded me of Clannad, even though Clannad was more focused on the love story. The anime is PG-13 so it’s delightful to watch with the whole family. At first, the anime is gonna appear to be like a normal school anime, when it’s actually fantasy… So keep that in mind. I love the character design. Though the animation was alright. There is another season coming out soon, which will probably explain the fantasy part of the anime better. It was a bit vague in this season. I totally recommend the anime it’s a wonderful story, very enjoyable, and also funny.

Review:

20130522-152117.jpg Confession… I don’t like manhwa. I kinda don’t remember why I didn’t like it so I decided to read this manhwa. Zen Martial Arts Academy is one of the most interesting comics I’ve ever read, even compared to manga and American comic books. The art of this manhwa is absolutely amazing! You can tell from the pictures. The story starts to build up in a very interesting way, you won’t be able to stop reading. The action is over the top and pretty awesome, there is always someone stronger. Though sadly at the end of that manhwa I realized why I disliked manhwa to begin with. The manga ended at a critical point. I felt like it ended before it even began. I think they expect us to complete it or some… It’s really sad to see such amazing work end in such matter.
