As the new addition in the genre of “cute girls doing not so cute girl things,” there is Princess Principal. It’s a historical-ish drama taking place in what could be an alternate Berlin Wall situation taking place in England. The country has been torn apart into a monarchy and a commonwealth. There to make sure the country as a whole does not get overrun by those that what to ruin in are a group of young spies. They are all amazing, well written, and have great chemistry with one another. The story, for the most part, is told out of order, but one can get the gist and see how much they care about one another. It’s a great show that needs a sequel. I NEED to know what happens next. There was such a huge cliffhanger.
If there was a hole to the center of the world in your hometown, would you go into it? That is the story of cave raiders in Made in Abyss. Made in Abyss is a heartwarming show as you follow two cave raiders into the Abyss. One is a human, and the other is something from the Abyss. The two of them are really sweet together, and they meet a bunch of interesting people. Even though the manga hasn’t finished being written, I felt that it ended well. Other shows that finish before the manga ends usually have horrible endings that make no sense, but this one was still amazing. I really want to show in continue, but according to some people I have spoken to, the manga is nowhere close to a point where the anime can continue. It might take a while, but I’ll be here waiting to see what type of adventures our two protagonists go on next.
I’ve finally finished it. If anyone has been keeping up with my MAL account, you would have noticed that it took me forever to finish Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. I’ve been watching it with one of my friends, and I was not allowed to watch any of it without her. For my birthday, I binged through the last 16 episodes of it. All of it was amazing. I was not expecting it because I lead towards shoujos and my friends who practically hate shoujos love it. All I can say is that I might start trusting them with anime suggestions. It is now another anime on the short list of animes that I suggest watching dubbed. I know that at this point, everyone and their mother has seen this anime, but I feel like I should emphasize how good it is from someone like me. IT WAS AMAZING. Now the question is should I watch the original. I’ve been told that towards the end it is disappointing, but the emotions going into it are a lot more present. Should I? I need to know. Please tell me.
I’m being quite literal with that title. In the anime Akuma no Riddle or Riddle Story of Devil, the Black Class of the prestigious school is made of assassins. What is their mission? To kill this one girl in their class. That’s right. It’s up to twelve different assassins to kill this one girl in their class. But there is a catch. There always is one. And is pretty good, all things considered. It’s kinda episodic with an overarching plot. There are times when I want to bash my head into the table watching one of the protagonists. She’s kinda cringe-worthy at times, but we put up with in for the sake of the show. She’s kinda like Usagi from Sailor Moon in many ways, except for the fact that she has experienced way more things before the start of the show, but doesn’t act like it. Another thing to mention if you are planning on watching this racy anime (because it can be racy at times) is that you have to watch every single ending. All of the endings are different and are there to represent the different characters. It’s amazing how well the songs and visuals capture the essence of everyone. It does a good job of humanizing a lot of the characters as well considering the fact that you may not see yourself emphasizing with a killer. But this anime makes it possible.
Seriously, guys, you have been partially warned in advance. This anime so far is on my list of four animes where the English dub is acceptable to watch for purposes other than making fun of it. But in this case, the original anime is so bad, the original producers told the people who dubbed it to do whatever they wanted. If you haven’t guessed it already, I’m talking about Ghost Stories.
And remember how I said you had been partially warned, well I haven’t told you about what it actually said. Let’s just say, it’s really, really crude. As in, if you get offended at all, this really isn’t for you. Now, I think you have been fully warned.
Strangely enough, once you get past what I was talking about in the previous paragraph, it’s … okay. Just at first the jokes are hilarious, mainly because you aren’t expecting them. But when you hear the jokes, over and over again, because you’re gonna binge watch anime (let’s just face it), it starts to drag on. You get tired of hearing the same jokes being brought up five times an episode, so my suggestion, if you going to watch this, is to not binge watch even though everything in you is telling you to. Just don’t do it. You might enjoy it better. Also, if you get offended in any way, I repeat, DO NOT WATCH THIS. This is your final warning; do not blame me if you continue on. But if you are gonna watch, be prepared for a few jokes that are going to make you pause the episode, so that you hear what’s going on over your loud laughter to only be repeated a couple of times.
I have recently finished Keijo!!!!!!!! and yes the title has that many exclamation points. Seriously. What is Keijo (I refuse to make the many exclamation points again (it’s either one or three!) you may ask. It’s fanservice. … That’s about it. If you have ever played or seen someone play Dead or Alive, it pretty much the game where the girls are hitting each other with their butts, except with more action because of reasons and kinda pervy, also for reasons. I honestly have no clue what demographic this is for or who came up with this, but it’s … good…cheezy…has feelings. What?!? I don’t know, but it is a very binge-watchable show, mostly because at the end of every episode, you’re scratching your head, asking yourself “What the heck just happened?”
Would I recommend it? Should I recommend it?
I honestly do not know, but if you are a weirdo, I mean unique, like me, you might enjoy this craziness.
Although the title of this post will make sense after you watch Kokoro ga Sakebitagatterunda (boy, I hope I spelled that correctly) or The Anthem of the Heart is an absolutely heart-wrenching watch. It was absolutely beautiful to watch. I watched this movie with some of my friends and we were talking about it for about half an hour about how amazing it was. About our favorite characters, the characters we hated with all of the passion we could muster. Yes, the movie takes a little to get going, but once it goes… Sometime soon, I do want to watch it again, without people’s heads in the way. But always remember scrambled eggs.
I really want to tell you guys more, but I fell like if I say anything, it would be a spoiler. Technically the title is a spoiler, but it doesn’t make any sense unless you get to the point where it actually comes up. Also, don’t read the synopsis on MAL; just trust me on this.
