Review:

I’m a huge fate/ fan so when I saw that this anime is from Fate series I decided to watch it. First thing I’ve noticed is that the anime is way lighter than Fate/stay night and Fate/zero. It does have its dark moments but it’s still light and girly. It’s still amazing, the coolest part was that it wasn’t only about summoning servants. I wanna say more about that… But I feel like it’s going to be a huge spoiler. Regardless of the fact that the anime is so moe, it has great deal of action and plot twist. Therefore give the anime sometime don’t judge it by the first two episodes. It is an amazing anime and I can’t wait for the 3rd season it’s been announced but the date wasn’t. I’ll post about it once I know more.

witch craft works

Review:

 Witch craft works is a very entertaining anime. The story is a bit unexpected, since the girl always protects and saves the guy. The anime is pretty funny and serious all at the same time. The character development was pretty very good. The anime was never boring, it always kept you wanting more. The anime Keeps you on edge till the very last second of the last episode. Yet its very entertaining and chaotic. Basically, it had a good balance between everything… character development, plot, soundtrack, and animation. If you like fantasy anime, you will like this show.

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)

General information:

Type: Manga
Volumes: 2
Chapters: 12
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.
