Kakuriyo: Hotel for Spirits

Blubberblabber.comAlright, today I’ll be going into an anime show called,” Kakuriyo”. It revolves around a girl named, Aoi, who was pretty much an ordinary girl other than the fact that she could see Ayakashi (aka other worldly beings) all her life. Things take a strange turn in her daily life after her grandfather died. Soon after his funeral, she gets a visit from Ōdanna, a handsome Ogre demon who spirits her away to the Hidden Realm so she can become his bride.

Totally confused about her new situation, she demands an explanation. Turns out her good old grandfather, Shiro, left a huge debt behind to Ōdanna and his hotel and never paid it back before he died. Knowing he couldn’t pay back the amount in time, he made a deal with Ōdanna saying that in exchange for his huge debt, he could take his granddaughter, Aoi, as his wife instead. Messed up, isn’t it?

Shiro

Even if this encounter was inevitable, Shiro could have at least warned her about the agreement so she could be mentally prepared when it happened. I know some of you out there would probably say ,’she would have run away’ or something like that, but let’s face it. Their Ayakashi from another realm, I’m pretty sure that no matter where she went in the world they were going to find her and bring her back kicking and screaming. Moving on, Aoi really didn’t want to get married to him for obvious reasons even though he was good-looking, kind-hearted and seemed to be wealthy enough to take good care of her for the rest of her life. So, she offered to pay the debt off by working for him in his hotel, the Tenjin’ya.

After the deal was made he became a bit of a dick to her and was super sure that she would come running back to him the moment, she realized that wouldn’t be able pay it all off fast enough. What he didn’t expect to happen was for her to find her place in the hotel and make her own eatery.

As time passes for her in the hotel, she meets all kind of new people, spirits and Ōdanna and Aoi get closer and closer. The show is still ongoing so I’m going to assume that they fall in love with each other and still get married in the end, but who knows maybe their will be a whole different ending to this. I do like this anime and I kind of feel like they got this idea from Spirited Away which is a very good movie by the way. There is a bit of mystery going on in the show and a lot of comedy, so if your into those kinds of genres then I would look into this anime quickly.

Thanks for Reading!

Aggretsuko: The Death Metal Panda

denofgeek.comWelcome, welcome, welcome!

Recently, I just got done watching an anime called, “Aggretsuko”, that I was really on the fence about. The main reason was because of the fact that the anime style wasn’t the usual kind that I would watch. At first glance, it looks more like a cartoon than an anime, but once I was done watching the first episode two things went through my mind.

One: This is definitely an anime show.

Two:  Totally in love with this show!

It’s about a red panda named, “Retsuko who works a regular nine to five office job for a company. But, what no ones knows about her is that she loves singing death metal karaoke whenever she’s stressed about something. After, I watched her scream-sing about how shitty her boss was in the company building bathroom, I knew I had to see more and before I knew it I went through the entire first season.

imgrumweb.com
Fenneko

Now when she’s not working at the company in the day, she’s at her favorite karaoke bar at night; singing her stress away. She goes there so often that the employees know her by name. Retsuko suppresses a lot of her emotions during work because she’s afraid that if she was herself and said what was actually on her mind during work, she would be fired and not have any friends or any kind of social life.

I can say we can all relate to her in some kind of way. When you really want to say or do what you really feel, but your mental filter comes in, so you don’t. Anyway, I really like the characters in this show if I had to my favorites it would be the trio (Fenneko, Retsuko and Haida).

Fenneko is a fox that should quit her job and be a detective instead. Reason being she has a habit of going through extreme means to find any info or dirt on any person that catches her eye. Retsuko can’t even change her daily routine without Fenneko finding out about it. You can’t hide anything from this girl.

Aggretsuko Wiki-FandomHaida is a hyena and has been Retsuko’s friend and co-worker for the last five years. Has time passes you realize that he’s developed a crush on Retsuko and doesn’t know how to confess his feelings for her. As you watch him, you realize how good of a match they would make if they got together. She’s a death metal singer and he dresses like a rocker when he’s not at work and plays an electric guitar.

Plus if you listen to their voices when they say Retsuko’s name it kind of sounds like their saying red skull instead. It’s really funny considering her hobby. This show is really enjoyable and I have to thank the creators for making this and Netflix for airing it into the world and into our hearts. The 2nd season doesn’t come out until 2019 and until then I’ll patiently be waiting.

Danganronpa 3: Season 1&2

I hope your having another wonderful day! Since today is my birthday I decided to talk about one of my favorite anime shows today which is Danganronpa.

As you all know Danganronpa was originally a video game before it became an anime series. So far there are two season, but I think their probably going to make a third season and I’ll tell you why later on. For now looks into the show itself, the first season is about what happened before the second game ,Goodbye Despair, but after the first game. The second season shows what happened to the class, Makoto and his friends after the second game ended.

Danganronpa 3 Trailer: https://youtu.be/djcN27k9kM0

In the first season it revolves around the Hinata and the 77th class at Hopes Peak Academy. It basically shows how they all were before they met Junko Enoshima which pretty much is how they were in the game before except that they didn’t want anything to do with each other because according to the school that as long as they pass the exams they don’t need to be in class. That’s where their new and perky home room teacher, Ms.Chisa, comes in. She comes in and makes them band together so they can enjoy a perfect and awesome high school life.

 

NewChallengerGaming.com
Chiaki The Ultimate Gamer

Turns out though that Ms.Chisa and several other people at the school have other ulterior motives for being there, which I’m not going to spoil for you. Anyway, there are some things that I want to point out that happened in the first season. The first one being is that Chiaki was in the class too and was alive at one point. My first thought was,“How is Chiaki alive?! I thought she was just a computer program so why is she here?” Turns out those questions are solved as you keep watching the series and when you find out about Chiaki’s fate it is the most saddest thing that you will ever see. I tried not to cry for the poor girl only because I know what happens to her in the second game of Danganronpa.

 

The other people who caught my eye were Nagito and Hinata for obvious reasons. Nagito was already a little bit of a nutcase, but it seems he didn’t really go off the deep end until the end of the first season after encountering the one and only Junko Enoshima. So, this really cleared up some things concerning him. Hinata, on the other hand, I kind of saw coming because if you’ve played the game then you know what happens to him while he was in Hope Peak. But, it was really interesting to see how he got to that point and how someone like him ended up joining Junko’s crew even after becoming an artificial Ultimate Hope.

Last but not least, I want to talk about what happened on the last episode of the first season. The reason being because I’m super confused as hell about it and I don’t know if I’m the only one who noticed this. So, on the last episode of the first season the new faces that showed up in the show and Makoto looked like they were all banding together to fight against a small army of people and helped stop another horrible tragedy and that Mikan mentions that she helped save someone from poison and that should be alright now. Right after that person (which I believe to be Kyoko) walks out and surprises Makoto to show that they are actually alive and well.

Pinterest.comNow here’s why I’m confused as hell, that episode shows what happens after the second season ends, right? But, in the second season Makoto, Kyoko, Ashina and the new faces from the previous season have to endure a second killing game in where most of these characters and Kyoko die. How could that be when they were shown in the teaser episode showing them fighting against a common enemy that was supposed to be in the last episode of the second season? Can someone explain that to me please? For now, I’m going to assume that the creators made that episode but then reconsidered later on in the series and decided to kill them off instead.

The second season is what I said before a killing game in which we finally get to see Monaca doing what she does best. Now is she the mastermind of this killing game, something worse or not at all? Your going to have to watch it to find out the answer to that questions. But, I was really excited to see her crazy ass face after the Ultra Despair Girls game came out. Anyway, in this new season we see a lot of new faces and a lot of other people’s abilities in action. They just put you in for another wild ride of crazy. I can understand why they didn’t make this another game though because of the fact of the rules of this game and how their was no trial to determine the blackened. Everyone knew how this was supposed to go but even so turned on each other faster than the previous two classes did. When I saw that I was like,“Future Foundation my ass! They can’t even stop themselves to from becoming crazy with despair!” The only people who didn’t go crazy as hell are the people that were survivors of the previous ones.

pixelstalk.netAlso, the reason why I think that they’ll make a third season is because I want background stories on Junko and Ikusaba. I think we can all agree that no one is born evil. You have to go through some awful stuff in order to become twisted like these two. That’s why I want to know their pasts and how they became how they are now. Sam e thing can be said for Nagito and Mikan. Their personalities were already weird to begin with but after Junko turning them evil their personalities got hundred times worse. That’s why I hope they make episodes about their pasts to find out why they are the way they are.

Speaking of crazy and evil is it wrong to like their despair appearances more than their current hopeful selves? I can’t deny that some of them looked cool as hell being evil but that’s just me. This anime will take you for a wild ride into the past and the future of the Danganronpa world. I hope you enjoy and the games as much as I have. Also, shoutout to all you enjoying your birthdays today and have fun!

Servamp: The Vampires of Sin

Are you enjoying this lovely spring weather like I am? I hope so.

Today’s anime that I’ll be talking about is Servamp that is a manga and an anime show by Strike Tanaka. I happened to come across this one by chance and I thought it looked interesting enough to take a look at. I will say that I only watched the show, but not the manga so this is going to be based on that.

Wattpad.com
Kuro’s Cat Form

It’s a teen boy named,”Mahiru”, who likes simple things but hates troublesome things. Already his personality traits are heading for a world of disaster. Anyway, one day he finds a black cat and decides to take it home to keep as a pet and names it, “Kuro”. But, the very next day when he returns from school, he finds a guy there instead of his cat; watching tv and eating all his food. Turns out that the cat he took in was actually a vampire and the reason why he was knocked out when he found him was because he was super weak to the sun.

In this show, instead of vampires burning or glittering in the sunlight they turn into small, cute animals. Kuro’s being an adorable black cat. Long story short Kuro and Mahiru end up making a contract with each other. Soon after another servamp comes out the woodwork that calls himself ,”Tsubaki”, the vampire of Melancholy.

AmiAmi.comKuro is one of the seven vampires of sin. He being the servamp of Sloth for obvious reasons and his other siblings representing the other six sins. Apparently, none of the other vampires knew about Tsubaki’s existence of being the 8th vampire of the sin, Melancholy. Tired of hiding and not being acknowledged by his older siblings, he decides to start a war against the other vampires.

Kuro and Hyde end up being my favorite characters in this show which i find ironic since they HATE each other with a bloody passion. Kuro keeps making me laugh with how lazy he is, he’ll actually avoid fighting because he feels sore or isn’t into it at all. Hyde is the opposite he always seem to be up for a fight at all times and doesn’t care about anyone but himself. He seems to have a bad and ultimately fatal habit of killing his eves when he gets bored with them.

Wattpad.comAnyway, I was kind of disappointed with the fact that only 3 out of the 7 sin vampires (not including Tsubaki) showed up in the show. If it wasn’t for the flashback, you’ve never have known what the other looks like. The beginning of the show made it seem like it was going to be that all seven band together for the greater good of all vampire kind and fight against Tsubaki all at once, but that didn’t happen. So, you could say I was a little miffed about that.

Hopefully, those details are in the manga for your enjoyment. But, this is a very good anime to watch and pass the time with. I hope you enjoy the crazy characters and funny moments that are in this show. See you next time!

Sisterly Love of Citrus

This time I’ll be talking about Citrus which was a manga originally by Saburouta. Later, made into an anime show by Seven Seas Entertainment. I will say that the manga did interest me, but I never got the time to get into it which is why I’m so glad they made an anime show version of it.

It’s about two girls that are total opposites of each other made to be step-sisters after their parents marry each other and not only that have to share a room. Yuzu is the perky, girly type of girl who likes wearing make up, jewelry and being social with others. She’s not afraid to speak her mind either which is why she sticks out like a sore thumb at her new school after she and her mom moved, so they could all live together. Mei, on the other hand, is the strict, bookworm type that follows the rules and makes sure everyone is doing their part. She is the student council president and the chairman’s granddaughter and you can tell just from looking at her that she doesn’t even know what the definition of fun is.

Now here’s the kicker, not long after they meet they both realize that they have feelings for each other. I think Mei already knew about her sexual preferences because she was the one who started this train of hotness. Also, when Mei was engaged to one of the teachers in the school, she didn’t look like she was enjoying any of his ‘affections’ towards her, but liked Yuzu almost instantly.

A lot of different things get between their forbidden love as they struggle to be a gay couple. This is still an ongoing series, so I don’t know how things are going to turn out for them yet. I think some people in this show might get shocked because some people like the parents don’t know about the relationship, but I think Mei’s grandfather had a little inkling of what she wanted especially after the whole teacher fiasco (for those of you who watched it know what I’m talking about).

This anime is nothing short of hot, suggestive and sweet. It’s interesting to see these two girls struggle in being in a relationship and help each other with their personal issues. This anime is very open about gay love, so I wouldn’t recommend this for you people out there that are homophobic in any way shape or form. But, for those other people though, I hope you enjoy this series as much as I did even though their aren’t many episodes out yet for our enjoyment. We can only wait and see what happens next.

The King’s Game: A Game of Deception and Chaos

RiceDigital.comWarning: This may contain spoilers

Welcome Back!

Today I’ll be talking about another horror type anime called,“The King’s Game”, also known as,“Osama Game”, that was written by Nobuaki Kanazawa. This is the type of cruel and twisted horror that has no problem sucking you in within minutes of watching it.

It revolves mostly around a teenage boy named,” Nobuaki,” who is transferring from his old school. You can tell right away that something is wrong and he’s waiting for something to happen. He was really scared to get close to anyone and just wanted to be left alone. The only person who tried to really hard to be his friend in the beginning was Natsuko, a cheerful and bright girl who fell for Nobuaki at first sight or so she claims, at least. Not long after he gets there he and rest of his class get a text from the ‘King’ welcoming them to the game and that they must do everything it says or get punished which in most cases was die a horrible and gruesome death.

blogs.tigarus.com
Natsuko aka Ms.Two-Faced

Nobuaki knew it was coming, so he wasn’t really surprised, but he didn’t know how to solve the problem. So, his only solution that he could come up with is if he doesn’t obey and dies as punishment then the game will hopefully end. Unfortunately, he ends up going through with the order because of Natsuko who in turn isn’t just a crazy two-faced bitch whose survived a previous King Game, but is Chiemi’s twin sister aka Nobuaki’s exgirlfriend.

Now Nobuaki not only has to find a way for everyone to survive, but stop Natsuko from meddling and getting everyone to turn on each other. This show is a rollercoaster of emotions and gets very twisted and very dark real quick. But, I have to point out some mistakes in the show’s logic and unsolved mysteries. One being the sister’s themselves, we never know how the sister’s got separated in the first place but only know that they born in a village that no longer exists on the map and that’s where the original King’s Game was played. According to the story, the first game was played at the sister’s village and 30 years have passed until Nabuaki/Natsuko’s previous games, correct? My question is how is everyone teenagers? They should at least be at their late 20s in college or something, right? So, that little detail is never explained in the show.

The anime never explains how the King’s Game was created in the first place; it only hinted to the fact that Chiemi and Natsuko’s father had something to do with its creation. Also, on how a virus that started on paper became an extremely intelligent computer virus? Was someone still working on it? Modified it somehow? And another thing that got was the ending to this entire insane scenario which was the hidden rule to end the game forever. The hidden message said that if all participants in the game die then the game will end and will not spread to new hosts. If there is a survivor then the game will spread and spread until all of humanity is destroyed. So, how and why did the game virus somehow transfer to someone who is totally unrelated to the current game?

Pinterest.esMaybe all these questions are answered in the manga, I only watched the anime so my opinions and views are coming off of that. If someone finds the answer then don’t hesitate to leave a comment below. Maybe they plan on explaining it in a second season, I don’t know but I highly doubt a second season is going to come out into the woodwork any time soon because of how it ended. If I had a choose a favorite character in this show, I would have to pick Ria. She was a total badass every time she appeared in the show. Also, the way she died was so cool that I had to give her respect. How can someone be set on fire and act so cool as if nothing was going on is beyond me, but she pulled it off.

Ria had reasons for being the way she was and I’m not going to reveal them. You’ll just have to watch or read the manga in order to find out. I really enjoyed this since I usually go for the horror types of anime. I wouldn’t recommend this to immature people (you know who you are) because there are a lot of sexual and intimate scenes in this and hints of rape as well. Also, if you’re not into horror, gore or very twisted situations and people this isn’t for you. Other than that I really enjoyed the anime overall and if a second season is coming out, I’ll be keeping my eye open for it.

Pochi Kuro: The Demon Realm of Gluttony

MyAnimeList.netHappy New Year everyone! Let’s have a great start to the new year.

For today’s manga, I’ll be talking about,”Pochi Kuro” that was written and illustrated by Naoya Matsumoto. In this one, our story revolves around a pair of thuggish demons named Kuro and the cat demon Reo who dream like all other demons that they could one day eat human meat. Apparently, humans are very rare in appearing in the demon world and if by some chance of fate that they did appear only the nobles and royal family have the privilege of eating them.

That’s why for common demons like Kuro and Reo can only dream about them until one day from a stroke they find a human girl unconscious in the river. Of course, they wanted to eat her but it didn’t take long for Kuro to get attached to her and name her, Pochi.

Eventually, Kuro fell in love with Pochi and promised to take her back to the human. Sadly, one of the reasons that humans appear very rarely in the demon world is that there is only way from someone to go in and out between worlds and its only in one area that is protected in a powerful shield of magic that can destroy any demon just from touching it. But, since Pochi is immune to magic because she’s human they think that place is her best bet.

MangaReader.netThis series is still ongoing, but it’s really funny and filled with demons fighting it out to get to Pochi. It turns out that their might be a love triangle going on between Kuro, Prince Ishizu and Pochi. I can’t wait to find out if she stays or goes in the end, but so far the only mysteries in this manga are how did she get into the demon world in the first place? Why is Kuro so powerful for a low common demon? I think Kuro is going to be an important person later and it turns out he’s royalty too somehow. We have so many devilishly handsome princes making an appearance in this story that I wouldn’t be surprised if he was one, too.

I can’t wait for the new chapters to come out and reveal what thrilling adventures they will go through next and I hope you will, too. If demons, comedy and action are your forte then give this manga a try and see how you like it.

Prison School: A Fantasy or a Nightmare?

animeshiroe.wordpress.comHello everybody today I’ll be talking about Prison School. I meant to talk about this one a long time ago but never got around to it. This one was made by Akira Hiramoto which started out as a manga, but later became an anime show.

The story starts out with five teenage boys being admitted to Hachimitsu Academy, but what they didn’t know until they got to the school was that they were the only boys attending the school. Originally the academy was an all girls school until recently when the school decided to become coed and use a group of boys to test out how well that would work.

Kiyoshi and his friends go from shocked to ecstatic for realizing the situation that their in and couldn’t wait for the semester to begin. Boys being boys they end up doing something stupid which was trying to peep on the girls while their bathing and get caught and arrested. Not arrested by the actual police, but by the school police which is made up by the student council of three members.

www.zonanegativa.comWhat the guys didn’t know about the school was that it has very strict rules that are still enforced, even though, the school is trying to change its policy. So, because their so strict instead of getting a slap on the wrist and telling them not to do it again, they are given a choice. Either endure prison school for a month or be expelled.

They ended up choosing  prison because of obvious reasons. During their time there, they were basically tortured, humiliated and treated like slaves the whole time. Reiji who is the fat one of the group with a small face takes everything in stride. To him the punishment was heaven even though he was beaten and treated like crap everyday.  You can probably tell that he probably thought he was never going to get any action anytime soon so he thought this was probably the closest thing to it.

Poor guy. 

Kiyoshi on the other hand wanted to get out of there as soon as possible including the others (except Reiji) . For most of them they just wanted to be free and far away from there as much as possible, but Kiyoshi wanted to get out of there for a whole different reason. He wanted to go on a date that was promised to him by Chiyo who is also the student counsel’s sister.

In this anime, there are a lot of jail type situations like betrayal, love, jailbreaks, etc. It was really funny to watch the guys so everything in their power to get away from these girls. Sometimes, I would feel bad for them until they did something stupid and I would just laugh some more. For you guys out there, if you haven’t watched or read Prison School yet then I suggest you start. Even if you don’t get any enjoyment out of watching these guys squirm then watching a trio of hot girls go around beating them up and putting themselves in compromising positions surely will.

Utawarerumono The Anime

Youtube.comHello everyone!

I said that I was going to talk about this a while back, but now I’m finally going to talk about the anime show “Utawarerumono”. I played the game earlier and it was super awesome, so expectations for the anime were pretty high.

I wasn’t surprised that a lot of the events in the game happened in the anime, as well. The only differences between the two would have to be that they went into more detail about the people who we fight against in the war so we get a better grip about who they are. Also, most of the lewd moments and mentions in the game aren’t in the show to my utter disappointment. I was kind of looking forward to that.

For those of you, who haven’t played the game or watched it yet. It’s about a guy named, Haku, who wakes up with amnesia to find out that his world is no longer his own. Giant insect creatures, giant acid blobs, magic, people with cat ears and tails are now the norm in this world and he travels with his savior and friend, Kuon, to the capital in order to find his place in the world.

What he doesn’t know is that his life is about to get a whole lot more complicated once he gets to the capital.

All of the characters in the anime are just as hilarious as they were in the game and it still keeps that mystery and action element going the whole time. I truly loved it and hope that there is more coming soon. If you guys don’t want to watch it or play it then the manga is always out there for your enjoyment. If your into action, adventure, mystery and hot cat-eared people everywhere then this is definitely for you. Enjoy!

Thanks for Reading!

D. Grayman

MyAnimeList.netHi guys! I hope you guys are having a wonderful week like I am, even though, I’m enduring a horrible heat wave at the moment. If any of you live where I am then you know the struggle.

Today’s anime is D. Grayman which was written by Katsura Hoshino. It mostly revolves around a boy named Allen Walkers who was born with a strange and deadly arm which you learn later in the show is his akuma weapon. He lives in a world where akuma are constantly being created by the Millennium Earl and are killing people in order to evolve and get stronger. Akuma are hideous monsters that were once a person who had died, but if a person wants you back hard enough and you make a deal with the Millennium Earl, he’ll bring that soul back from the dead only to order it to kill you and become a akuma. Bad deal, right?

Personally, if someone I knew died and I was really mourning their death and someone came up to me with that offer I would most likely have 2 reactions: I would think your crazy and ask what’s the catch. We all know that nobody does anything for free even if they go up to you and say its free. There is always some kind of ulterior motive behind it.

BehindTheVoiceActors.comAnyway, with Allen Walker’s own personal hatred towards the Earl, he went to find the Black Order to become and exorcist. They’re some funny freaking characters in this show my 2 favorites would have to be Kanda and Komui. Kanda is a samurai exorcist with a mysterious past that I really hope they reveal one day. Kanda may seem to have a black heart and be cruel as hell, but later you realize he’s just a grumpy guy that doesn’t want to wear his emotions on his sleeve. I think he’s totally adorable to when you watch him be grumpy and angry for no reason.

Komui is this crazy genius with an extreme sister complex. He likes making tools and machines that most of the time don’t work and end up attacking people. I think the reason anyone puts up with it is because he’s the chief at the Black Order. He worked hard for that title, so he could be with his sister again who is also an exorcist.

Pinterest.comForgot to mention that akuma are considered to be imaginary creatures as far normal people are concerned.  Well, at least until they see one with their own eyes that is. Not everybody can become an exorcist, you have to innocence inside of you in order to use the power to fight akuma. Also, the innocence would have to choose you in order to use it, you can’t just find it and expect that superpowers or anything.

This show is a race to see which side will succeed in getting all of the missing pieces of the innocence and the heart. This crazy, dark, funny and full of action, so if your into those things then you better stop reading this and start watching this right now or read the manga. A third season to the show has come out recently called “D.Grayman: Hollow” and I can’t wait to see it and tell you guys all about it. Until then, watch this if your into it and I’ll see you all next time.

Thanks for Reading!
