Mourning Soul Eater - Part 1

If it isn't clear that I love Soul Eater then i don't know what is wrong with you ..hahaa. Today, I'm going to watch the finale and I have high expectations I mean it's SOUL EATER!!!!! But I'm kind of scared that I'll be disappointed but i'm PRAYING that it is fantastic. I haven't read anyones blog on the subject and i decided not to watch the RAW so i can understand 100% as opposed to 50% (YATTAAAA my understanding of Japanese is increasing!!!). Anyways, that aside I thought I'd blog about what is to become one of my favourite animes. I thought this was a really childish anime when I first started watching but I guess i am a BIG KID still as i continued watching and watched the greatness of this story unfold. OK OK enough Soul Eater ass kissing.....I'll be back *SOBS* too say Sayonara to one of the most awesome anime I watched in a while!!!!!!

Casshern Sins - Sayonara

I thought this photo was cool even though it isn't an anime snap of Casshern BUT hey that's the kind of person i am (ZOMG i sound like Sid from Soul Eater----yikes)!!! So, I finally completed Casshern Sins and I must admit i really enjoyed this anime in the end. At times I was like this thing is dragging but i must admit the slow pace at times kind of intensifies the atmosphere of despair and death lingering on the horizon so maybe it was perfectly paced!?!! I did a post on this one before----it's in the archive but that was done when i watched 12 episodes----now this is my opinion after i've fully digested the CAKE that is Casshern Sins!!!

I won't say to much about the overall story as it will spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen it yet. So, what I will say is that if you like science fiction type stories, action and a story that will leave you pondering over things like the value and meaning of life you'll like this anime. What I'm trying to say is that Casshern Sins leaves a lasting impression and shows the devastation that can be caused when people try to control life and death. If it hasn't come across---what I'm saying is WATCH THE BEAUTY THAT IS CASSHERN SINS.

Another Bleach post!!!! Yes that's exactly right---i just watched episode 212 and i knew i hated Aizen kisamaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa for a reason. I hope you're feeling the hatred that is building up inside for Aizen....hehehe i know it's FICTION!!! But i loves Bleach and most of all if not especially most of ALL i love URAHARA. Now i discover the reason why he lost his Captain status and why he is in the human world is all thanks to this evil loathsome AIZEN (sorry about the spoiler if you're BLEACH newbie) . Hands up ----he is a great VILLAIN but i cannot wait for his demise. I don't read the Manga much but I've read at least 50 chapters of this one and i reckon that's just because Bleach totally ROCKS :) I'm loving the whole RESCUE INOUE saga and the whole TURNING BACK THE CLOCK. So Vizards go and handle your business and i hope you get you're REVENGE especially Hiyori & Shinji . If I'm married to Urahara well then...hmmmm....Shinji is the bit on the side!!! Gotta have your extras --LoL.

SouL Eater - End is Nigh!!!!!

I am one step closer to kissing Soul Eater goodbye....i'm preparing myself for the long departure!!!! An unwanted end BUT i guess all good things must come to an end ---it's the natural order of things :(

Today i watched the penultimate episode that's right the next episode marks the FINALE and boy oh boy i really am going to miss this anime. If you're one of the lucky people that hasn't yet watched this anime and are about to experience it for the first time (am JEALOUS!!!!). I hope you're beginning to see that i think this is absolutely AWESOME.

I did do a longer post on this anime already BUT this is just a brief little post to show all of you dedicated Soul Eater fans that i'm truly going to miss this one. Here's to you (the opening songs for this anime, which were removed!!!!).

Opening Song 1 - T M Revolution: Resonance

Shinigami likes Apples ----Rules of Death Note

What follows are the rules on how to use the Death Note!!!!

1. The human whose name is written in this note shall die.

2.This note will not take effect unless the writer has the persons face in their mind when writing his/her name. Therefore, people sharing the same name will not be affected.

3.If the cause of death is written within 40 seconds of writing the persons name, it will happen.

4.If the cause of death is not specified the person will simply die of a heart attack.

5.After writing the cause of death, details of the death should be written in the next 6 minutes and 40 seconds.

6.This note shall become the property of the human world, once it touches the ground on (arrival in) the human world.

7.The owner of the note can recognize the image and voice of its original owner, i.e. a god of death.

8. The human who uses this note can neither go to Heaven nor Hell.

9.If the cause of death is written within 40 seconds after writing the cause of death will be a heart attack, the time of death can be manipulated, and the time can go into effect within 40 seconds after writing the name.

10.The human who touches the DEATH NOTE can recognise the image and voice of its original owner, a god of death, even if the human is not the owner of the note.

11.The conditions for death will not be realized unless it is physically possible for that human or it is reasonably assumed to be carried out by that human.

12.The specific scope of the condition for death is not known to the gods of death, either. So, you must examine and find out.

13. One page taken from the DEATH NOTE, or even a fragment of the page, contains the full effects of the note.

14. The instrument to write with can be anything, (e.g. cosmetics, blood, etc) as long as it can write directly onto the note and remains as legible letters.

15.Even the original owners of the DEATH NOTE, gods of death, do not know much about the note.

Anime of the Week: Death Note デスノート Desu Nōto

I can’t remember why I started watching Death Note----I don’t remember anyone recommending it to me BUT damn am I glad I watched this anime. I think I finished it within 3 days ----all 37 episodes if I had anytime free in the day it was spent watching Death Note. Now, I know that the anime is an adaption based on the manga series written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata. I haven’t read the MAnga so I couldn’t say if the adaptation is any good and you know what I don’t care!!!!! I watched the anime and based on what I saw I thought what a TERRIFIC story----absolutely freaking awesome.

So if you haven’t yet watched Death Note----don’t wait any longer and take this post as motivation for you to watch it NOW!!!! The story begins when a shinigami named Ryuk (death god) is bored in his world and looking for some entertainment throws his Death Note into the human realm. The Death Note is a notebook owned by the Death Gods and it has the power to take human life once a person’s name is written on its pages. This book happens to fall into the hands of a Yagami Light, a clever high school student who is also suffering from boredom BUT he has a strong belief in justice. He decides he’ll use the Death Note to rid the world of criminals BUT in doing so he becomes entangled in a web with the world’s greatest detective L on his trail.

Watch IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Character of week - Gai Sensei

Even though we have a character every week----i haven't posted one on the blog since well...hmmmmmm....since LUFFY!!!!! So, this week I'm posting the character of the week and it happens to be Guy Sensei from Naruto. Now a lot of people always say that they don't like Naruto and you know what WHO CARES i like Naruto and I'm not alone. Guy Sensei is like a totally awesome character in that he is so different from the others (apart from his student, Rock Lee)---this is his classic NICE GUY POSE!!!!

I thought it was pretty funny that i found him in the Urban Dictionary and this is what it has to say about Guy SEnsei-----HIS AWESOME (joking it doesn't say that).

1. Gai Sensei
Character from naruto.

Gai is a Konoha Village jounin and the sensei of the team whose members are Rock Lee, Tenten, and Hyuuga Neji. Like Lee, he is a specialist in hand-to-hand combat or taijutsu, but unlike Lee, he can use ninjutsu or genjutsu.
He and Kakashi are known as eternal rivals, gai is in the lead with 50 wins to 49 losses. Later it becomes known that this is just the score of a rock-paper-scissors game they played when they were kids. He is also a fantastic teacher since he really cares about his students and their feelings, especially Lee. Although he really cares about his students, he is very strict about his rules and those who break them will receive a punishment.

Gai and Lee are very close. Lee is Gai's favorite student because of his nindo, (way of the ninja), and because Lee looks like him in his younger days. Gai is also proud that Lee has mastered the renge, secondary renge, and the ura renge at such a young age. Gai especially appreciates Lee because he has the same eyebrows and the same nindo. He sees his childhood self in Lee.
Gai Sensei: "Youth is sweet and sour and sometimes strict Kakashi"

Kakashi: "Did you say something"

Gai Sensei: "Oh my god!!! That was pretty good rival Kakashi. That reaction is somewhat 'modern' and it pisses me off."

2. Gai Sensei

1. A character from Naruto who is Rock Lee's sensei.
2. Fuad Kabir
Gai Sensei and Kakashi have 48 wins each.

So Guy Sensei i dedicate this song to you and the burning spirit of YOUTH!!!! BACCHIKOIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII BABYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

Anime Song of the Week: See-Saw - Anna Ni Issho Datta No Ni

This week's song of the week is the ending song to Gundam Seed and was the first Japanese song that Imy heard ---KAWAII YO!!!! The group responsible for this awesome song which I totally love :) is See-Saw who used to be a trio BUT they are now a pop duo. The members consist of Chiaki Ishikawa & Yuki Kajiura. They have done a number of other anime songs like the opening and endings of .hack//SIGN and .hack//Liminality, two insert songs for Noir, the first ending song and final ending song for Mobile Suit Gundam Wing.

So Enough chit chat----if you fancy a sing a long ---continue down below for the video!!!!

Chiaki Ishikawa

Romanji Lyrics

Anna ni issho datta no ni yuugure wa mou chigau iro

Arifureta yasashi saha kimi wo toozakeru dake
Tsumetaku kirisuteta kokoro wa samayou bakari
Sonna kakkou warusa ga ikiru toiu koto nara
Samuzora no shita me wo tojite iyou

Anna ni issho datta no ni
Kotoba hitotsu toura nai kasoku shite yuku senaka ni ima wa
Anna ni issho datta no ni yuugure wa mou chigau iro
Semete kono tsuki akari no shita de shizuka na nemuri wo

Unmei to umaku tsukiatte yuku nara kitto
Kanashii toka sabishii nante itte rare nai
Nando mo tsunagatta kotoba wo muryoku ni shite mo
Taikutsu na yoru wo tsubushitain da ne

Anna ni issho datta no ni
Fuzoroi na futari ni ima tadoritsukeru basho nado nainda
Anna ni issho datta no ni hajimete au yokogao ni
Fushigi nakurai ni miserareteru tomadou kurai ni

Kokoro wa doko ni iru? Doko ni fukarete iru? Sono hitomi ga mayowanu you ni

Anna ni issho datta no ni

Kotoba hitotsu toura nai ugoki hajimeta kimi no jounetsu
Anna ni issho datta no ni yuugure wa mou chigau iro
Semete kono tsuki akari no shita de shizuka na nemuri wo

Yuki Kajiura

It is such a lovely song!!!! Check out it's meaning in English =) Ps. Don't they look great for their age 39 & 43 :)

We were so close together, but the twilight has a different color now.
The abundance of kindness only keeps a distance between us.
Our coldly ignored hearts are wandering in the midst.
If this awkwardness is what it's like to live,
we shall close our eyes under the cold sky.

Even though we were so close together,
We can't even get a word across between our increasing distances.
Even though we were so close together, the twilight has a different color now.
Please, give us a quiet sleep under the moon light, if it is the last thing possible.

If you are going to cope with fate,
you can't go on saying you are sad or lonely.
Even if it means to break the links of words we have made together,
you would still want to say goodbye to the dull nights.

Even though they were so close together,
the unmatched couple have no place they can reach.
Even though we were so close together, in a glimpse of your new face,
I am fascinated, almost as though it is strange, almost enough that I would feel uneasiness.

Where lie our hearts? Where are we drifting off to? So that our eyes do not become lost.

Even though we were so close together,
We can't even get a word across between our increasing distances.
