Lovely Complex - Anime of the Week


This
anime is great fun to watch---it's a love story about an unlikely couple that seem like they'll never get together but that's love, right, unexpected. HAHAHAHA, am getting distracted!!!! So, if you like the slice of life type anime with hilarious scenes and a great easy to watch anime then Lovely Complex is right up your street.



The two main characters are
Ootani and Risa who have a HUGE height difference but have very similar interests. The whole anime focuses around their relationship with each other and the friends around them and a whole lot of fun, fun, fun believe me, you'll be cracking up while watching this love story come together.

I haven't blabbed on too much because I did that in my previous post!!!! So, if you have some free time give Lovely Complex a Peek.

JigoKu ShouJo Mitsuganae - The Girl From Hell

Last night I watched the final few episodes from Jigoku Shoujo and I'm really hoping that they do another season because I totally love Enma Ai. She is the Girl from Hell who will ferry people to hell at the cost of you're soul falling to hell on your future death. I love the whole idea behind this story and how it shows the different types of hell that people live every day. Each episodes shows you another nightmare that someone has to endure on a day to day basis at the hands of their fellow man.

I won't go on too much, as I have the potential to chat on and on when it comes to my favourite anime character (well, one of them) Enma Ai. If you haven't watched any of the series, lucky you!!! This will give you something new to see and believe me, I'm sure you'll thoroughly enjoy it fingers crossed.


This happens to be the anime song of the week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Eve no Jikan: Time of Eve


I totally forgot all about Eve no Jikan and that is probably because the episodes are released like 2 months apart and there are only two more 15 minutes episodes left. But I must say I love Yasuhiro Yoshiura, his work is brilliant!!!! This anime really leaves you thinking and even though it's all science fiction these episodes are thought provoking. What makes us human? Is being born human what defines are humanity and things of this nature. If technology is created and it has the makings of a sentient being shouldn't it be treated as such? Despite looking indistinguishable (except for a halo ring above their head) from a human being the androids are treated as tools---REMARKABLE.


Anyways, I'm digressing but if you love these kind of anime and great animation--you'll love a time of eve--make sure you watch IT!!!!

Kurozuka ---Let me Down TT.TT


I finally finished Kurozuka and I'll be honest I wasn't overly impressed. The story is about a 1,000 year old love story between Kuro and Kuromitsu---I won't reveal too much of the story in case you chose to watch this anime. So, what I will say is that the anime has a lot of blood, violence, action, samurai swords and cool noh chanting in the opening scenes.

You might wonder what was your problem with this anime.....sounds awesome!!! Well, here it is---the story was a little jumbled and this might be because the lead characters memories are all over the place BUT he is only certain of one thing. The need to find Kuromitsu. Kuromitsu the woman who changed his life for an eternity---the one he spills his own blood for and that of those around him. The story has some interesting ideas about how far men will go to obtain POWER and some of these scenes are disturbing---how they experiment on people with Vampiric blood and dispose of them if they aren't a suitable HOST....PRETTY GROSS.


But overall I wouldn't say this will be a memorable anime and I doubt it will be a favourite anime BUT nevertheless as it only has 12 episodes, if you start it you'll most likely finish it. If you only want to watch it for the blood splatter, you'll definitely enjoy it!!!!!

I still remember when I watched Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex staying up late without letting mom know I was cause I was in 5th grade then. There must've been something there for my mind to be caught so much into it. I loved the totally kinda weird creepy storyline it had. I a
lso like the animation style a lot. And for some reason, I always found Makoto super attractive! <3

Anime of the Week: Soul Eater ソウルイーター

If you haven't watched Soul Eater ---you are CRAZY, INSANE and need committing to nearest anime clinic to get your does of 51 episodes like since yesterday. This anime is absolutely awesome and it's so awesome in fact I've already done 3 other posts!!!! So, I'm keeping this one short and sweet. The story evolves around a school with the grim reaper as the Headmaster---he is training an army of shinigami's to rid the earth of evil threats posed by WITCHES. The students are all paired with weapons (who have a human form) and when their soul resonates in harmony together their strength increases. In order to graduate they must collect the souls of 99 evil humans and 1 of a witch BUT graduation isn't so easy. This is the ultimate anime because it has it all---great characters, brilliant action scenes, comedy, nice story and lots and lots of energy as well as fantastic music.

WATCH IT NOW or stay bonkers for the rest of your life!!!!


Trailers AND Music are in my previous posts.

Nodame Cantabile is so HILARIOUS!!!!


This is the first music type anime I watched and I totally loved it. Yes, yes the two main characters are musical prodigies but Nodame chan is the funniest, freakiest, totally insane character I've ever come across and I loves HER *in none lesbian way* she is just too funny. Her crush on Chiaki sempai is just lovely to watch and his looks attract a lot of attention from other girls and boys---yes, Chiaki sempai is a HEART THROB *boom boom boom goes the HEART*.


If you haven't watched this anime I suggest you do so, simply because it's too much fun too miss out on. If you like classical music you'll totally love it.....if you don't like classical music ---you will still enjoy it because it has some of the funniest scenes I've ever seen and I'm not gonna go too much into them. So, you'll have too trust me---it's full of jokes and it has a nice pace, good story and in fact....I'm gonna watch Nodame Cantabile in Paris ---yes, part II---so look out for the post.

Here is the last post I did on this anime.


You can catch a funny clip on the old post!!!!!!!

Code Geass ---MASTERPIECE!!!!

I think I fell in love with Lelouch, yes, I did!!!! He reminds me so much of KIRA and I think that's because of his cold, calculating and brilliant mind----just my type---see intelligence is SEXYYYYYYYYY.  Sorry, I got sidetracked.  I finally finished watching Code Geass after a long time on the TO WATCH LIST I got round to it and I'm so glad I watched IT.  I'm going all out and labelling it a Masterpiece--simply because it's awesome.


I watched 4 episodes of Gundam and I stopped BUT after watching such a great Mecha type anime....I think I better finish Gundam---sidetracked again, it is late here you know!  So, Code Geass and it's brilliant battle for JUSTICE in a strategic thought out battle of wits has you simply on the edge of your seat--thinking about watching the whole series without sleeping.  Seriously, the story is that compelling and exciting and all the other adjectives associated with FANTASTICA.  So, if you were like me and had this on your list but didn't watch it yet.  Don't sleep on it ---WATCH today and while I'm at it if you loved DeathNote---I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy this one too:)

Shangri La シャングリ・ラ Fun & Fresh


This is another of the new spring anime that is truly a beautiful anime to watch and I think if you're a science fiction fan you'll enjoy it or if you're a cross dresser you might also enjoy!!!  The story is set in the future that has been affected by the climate and mans abuse of natural resources and pollution has resulted in a carbon crisis.  The environment has changed and only the chosen few get to live in the Utopia known as Atlas while the other people living on the earth's surface---face a miserable existence.


I totally think the storyline again is quite unique and intriguing.  The animation is fantastic and the character designs and I also think the characters themselves are great fun especially Momoko san who is not in these pictures.  You must watch this anime---there are 14 episodes left to air and more and more of the story to be told.  I mean what is this prophecy---is the EARTH talking to a few chosen individuals---is it time for change.  I think so people....don't miss Shangri La or if you can't watch now---remember to watch it at some point in this lifetime!!! YATTTTTAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.
