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.

Manga Review: Seiten no Hekigan

20130820-015537.jpg

Summary:

Even after one month of transferring to a new school, Natsuki keeps her distance from her classmates. Her childhood friend Haruka always tries to push her to be more sociable, but Natsuki just pushes her away. One day, while Natsuki was skipping class and eating lunch on the school balcony, a slime-like substance drops right on top of her. The slime slowly forms itself into… a human girl? An odd relationship between Natsuki and her new alien(?) sister begins. (Source: MangaHelpers)

Status: Publishing
Published: Oct 10, 2012 to Oct 10, 2013
Genres: Fantasy, School, Sci-Fi
Authors: Takishima, Asaka (Story & Art)
Serialization: Manga Life Win

Review:

They killed this manga too soon… the story was just about to get real. The manga had so much potential, but got cancelled. So this is me crying about it. The manga is about a criminal alien that was exiled to plant earth. The alien first encounter is a girl named Natsuki. The alien turned into a female human and started following Natsuki around and living as her sister.
The story felt more like a slice of life than a fantasy. I loved the flow of the events in the manga. It’s a shame that the manga ended too soon. Even though it was building up pretty well. I’ve very much enjoyed every chapter of the manga and if it were licensed I would buy it 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.

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.

Because of the impact this prince had on her life, Utena strives to be just like him – to grow up to be a prince, not a princess, and to spread nobility, ultimately finding her prince and bringing revolution.

Serialization: Ciao

65440Review:

After watching Utena’s movie I had to know more about the series so I watched the anime and then read the manga. The anime is kinda unimportant compared to the manga. The manga is absolutely amazing. There are some stuff in the manga that are not included in neither the movie or the anime which I think are important. There is more character development in Utena in the manga. The ending was beautiful. It also made me understand Anthy more I think. I fallen in love with Utena after reading the manga, not that I wasn’t already in love with her but she seemed more real to me. I also loved how straight forward the manga is. The special chapter were pretty good too. The stories there were better told in the manga than the anime. Therefore I highly recommend the manga. Also if you are interested in knowing the difference between the manga and the anime just watch the last 3 episodes of the anime. I should also mention that the ending of the anime is different from the manga and different from the movie. Though the essence of the story is the same in all of them.

Overall Rating: 9/10
