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.

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)

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.

Movie Review: The Girl Who Leapt Through Time

After a fated event, her life takes a turn for the extraordinary. Though she initially uses her power to literally “leap” into the past and change little things in order to make her life easier, she soon has to face the fact that changing the past can have drastic consequences.

Review:

So I heard and read a lot about this movie before I watched it. I was also meaning to watch it for quite a while. I didn’t get a chance to until few months ago. So yes this review is very delayed.
The Girl Who Leapt Through Time I must say that the title itself is quite intriguing. The movie wasn’t what I had in mind. For some reason I thought she would travel to a different life time. Though the time leaps were a mater of days or hours. Though the way the story was presented was quite interesting, and I specially loved the twist near the ending of the movie. I also liked the fact that the character developed after the events that happened throughout the movie. It was pretty interesting to watch. Also, the amount of drama, comedy, thriller factors were just right. I never got bored and everything I discovered was always interesting. The movie was perfect specially the ending it left me speechless. If you haven’t watched it yet… I say it’s a must watch!!

First Impression:

For some reason… I believe this manga is fit as a slice of life. Seiten no Hekigan has a very interesting first chapter that made me continue reading it. As it says in the Summary the manga is follows this girl Natsuki. So far we know that Natsuki had a incident in the past that made her anti-social and depressed. We also know that she encounters an Alian and take her into her home as her sister. I just read chapter 8 and eagerly awaiting the next chapter. You won’t believe how good the story keeps getting. So check it out and tell me what you think.

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]

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: Date A Live

20130702-013628.jpg

Itsuka Shido is a high school boy. On the last day of the spring holidays, an explosion destroys the town and a girl in armor appears in front of him.

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.
