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.

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The Japanese call them hikikomori—people who’ve become so withdrawn socially that they refuse to leave their homes for weeks and even months at a time.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?

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.

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.

Aired: Nov 23, 2013
Producers: Gonzo
Genres: Action, Demons, Fantasy, Super Power
Duration: 1 hr. 29 min.
Rating: R – 17+ (violence & profanity)

Review:

Hearing about Bayonetta‘s movie made me jump allover the place. Watching the movie was like a dream come true. I mean Bayonetta in a Japanese voice :$ I’m sold. No really, The movie was incredible. The action is amazing. Basically it was all action one fight after the other, defeated a boss to be confronted with a new one. If you are familiar with the game its very similar to it. The directing is amazing and a very good story. I can assure you that you wont get bored. There were cute moments there and funny ones as well. As great as the movie was I was left unsatisfied. I don’t know why, it just felt like something was missing. If you played the game of a Bayonetta fan you must watch it.

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.

Anime Review: DevilLady

20130707-023609.jpg

Summary:

Fudo Jun is a beautiful supermodel who is idolized by many. She also has a dark secret that not even she knows about at first, for within her veins run the genes that hold the next step in the evolution of mankind. The same blood as the beastlike superhumans that terrorize the city. Unlike the rest of them, though, Jun has managed to hold a tenuous grip onto her humanity, and she is recruited by the mysterious Asuka Ran, member of a secret organization within the government, aimed at controlling, if not eliminating, these berserk destroyers of mankind. Jun, as Devilman Lady, must now exterminate her own kind, but how much longer can she keep her sanity in a situation she never chose in the first place? (Source: ANN)

General Information:

Producers: Toei Animation, TMS Entertainment, ADV Films, Dynamic Planning
Genres: Action, Drama, Horror, Adventure, Supernatural
Themes: Demons, Yuri
Rating: R+ – Mild Nudity

Review:

I know that this is an old anime, but I just watched it last month. I read part of its manga as well. The anime is different from the manga, it’s like an alternative version. I really liked that fact, for so many reasons that I won’t mention. :p
I have to warn you first, that there is nudity in the anime and mature content “story wise”. So, at first the main character seems strong, yet the human side of her seems fragile. The art of the anime was great. Also, the main character’s beauty showed, and a lot of girls fell for her. Which is basically why its themed yuri. There was a lot of action and bloodshed in the anime. Oh, and the opening theme song of song of the anime was amazing I could listen to that song all day!! There was something I didn’t quite understand in the anime… Jun “the main character” seemed to walk around and kiss guys for no reason… I mean a guy appears out of nowhere she would share a kiss with him, and then you never see that guy again… What’s up with that?! Other than that the story was solid. So, good story, good sound track, good art, and it’s a very good anime.

Manga Review: The Strings Dolls

20130629-150830.jpg

Summary:

One day, Shiro and his little sister, Koyori, who has been permanently crippled after an accident, download a peculiar game called “Strings Dolls.” Whenever you have someone in your camera screen, the game allows you to move them around like a puppet. Shiro and Koyori are filled with joyl to realize that this magical game can, at least temporarily, restore her ability to walk! Other people, however, use it for much less noble purposes. Among the others who have downloaded the game is a mysterious player called Miyabi, who appears to be using the game to kill off his fellow players. Will Shiro be able to track down who is behind this game, and find the murderous Miyabi before it’s too late? (Source: MU)

General Information:

Type: Manga

Chapters: 15
Status: Finished
Published: Jul 14, 2011 to Jul 12, 2012
Genres: Mystery, School, Shounen, Supernatural
Authors: Hibaru, Shunsuke (Story & Art)
Serialization: GanGan Online

Review:

The strings doll manga has a unique story. It’s about this game that’s created to control people like puppets and the game is called Strings Doll. Since its a shounen manga there’s bound to be a villain and the main character is obviously the hero. The manga’s art is pretty cool, and idea of the story is unique. The flow of the events was kinda predictable. Though it was a nice read. I also like how violent the manga got halfway through and it had a nice amount suspense. So overall the manga was good.

Overall Rate: 7/10
