DeadTube

ComicVine.GameSpot.comChristmas is approaching fast and I hope you are enjoying your time with your friends and family.

For today, it’s going to get a little dark even with the happy holiday mood that most of us are in. That’s because today I’m going to be talking about the horror manga, DeadTube, which was written by Mikoto Yamaguchi and illustrated by Touta Kitakawa. It originally revolved around a boy named Tomohiro Machiya who is a member of the film club who suddenly gets a request from Mai Mashiro, who tells him if he can film her for two whole days no matter what happens then she’ll let him be her partner in her next project.

For Machiya this was already an unusual request, but he had no real reason to deny it so he recorded her. On the last day, she made it look like she was going to have sex with her boyfriend who was also one of Machiya’s bullies a long time ago, but she ended up killing him instead. After, the unexpected execution Mai decides that he is indeed worthy to be her partner.

It turns out that people including Mai go out of their way recording themselves committing crimes like theft, murder, violence, etc and upload the videos into a site called, DeadTube’, which is like YouTube only its full of gruesome and disturbing videos. After, the murder of the bully; he wants to tell someone and tell Mai to stop what she’s doing before they get arrested, but on the very next day he finds out there is no police investigation for the missing bully and that the crime scene was completely cleaned up as if nothing happened.

AminoApps.comTurns out that the people who control DeadTube are responsible. How DeadTube works is you commit a crime then upload it to DeadTube. If your video gets a lot of views then you get paid a lot of money in return, but if you put up a video and barely gets any views or none at all then not only will you not get paid, but you’ll be charged for everything that was put into the video. For example, if the death of the bully didn’t get a lot of views then they would have been legally charged with breaking and entering, indecent exposure, murder and be fined the money that went into making the video. Luckily, for him it did well in DeadTube, so they don’t get in trouble and he got paid pretty good for it which freaked him out even more.

If it couldn’t get any worse it turns out that once you register in the site, you can’t back out of it unless your die or lose and end up getting arrested or something. The moment he agreed to film her his fate was sealed. Poor guy……is what I would say if it wasn’t for the fact that instead of Machiya being sad and distraught about the killing, he ended up getting off on it and that’s when you realize he’s just as twisted as Mai no matter how much he denies it. So in this series their pretty much a twisted couple, even though, throughout the story he denies them being in a relationship.

While reading it I liked how Machiya and I were on the same wavelength when I saw something really suspicious or off about something going on in the story, he would point it out later. It just goes to show that he’s smarter than he looks and he’s not just some shy, weak boy who does everything that Mai tells him.

This manga series is still ongoing and is definitely M rated. There is a lot of sex, gore, nudity and violence in this story and it’s still not finished so who knows what is going to happen next. The story is really exciting and darker and it continues to get even darker as you progress through the story. It’s really good if you can handle the constant gore and violence portrayed in the manga. Can’t wait until the next update on the story its sure to be something.

Thanks for Reading!

The Promised Neverland

Hello to you once again!

I know its been a while since I’ve talked about a manga, but never fear its here! Today I’ll be talking about, “The Promised Neverland,” also known as ,Yakusoku no Neverland,” which was written by Kaiu Shirai and published by Viz Media. This one was a very interesting story, so it revolves around main kids named Emma, Norman and Ray who live in an orphanage thinking that their life was perfect and couldn’t wait for the day that they got adopted like all other orphans do.

They didn’t even think it was weird nor question why they wore numbers on their necks, why their strict rules placed in the mansion and one of them being they can never go past the gate in front of the mansion or why they have to take tests everyday to test their knowledge. To them this was the norm.

One dscans-daily.dreamwidth.orgay, this secret is revealed after they try to catch with Connie who just got adopted and was taken to the gate to be picked up. When they get there though they are shocked to find Connie dead; that they are grown and harvested as food for demonic creatures and that their ‘Mama’ who takes care of them is in league with them. With this shocking secret revealed they make it their mission to escape the farm before its their time to go up on the chopping block.

I find this manga so messed up on so many ways and it will mess with your heart so much. In this there are so many twists and turns in this epic adventure to survive and try to find their own true paradise. There are so many questions though……..where are the other humans? When did this all happen? Why aren’t the kids with the other humans if their are any? What are the demons? Why is it so important for the kids to be offered to them?

Spoiler Alert Incoming

There are so many questions while you read it and it as no problem sucking you in. You meet a lot of interesting characters and you hope with all your heart that they all live, but its kind of like Akame Ga Kill at first the person that’s your favorite is the one who gets killed. But, you still cross your fingers and hope that they all make it alive. Like for example, when Norman was ‘adopted’ and taken to the gate, I was like “NNOOOOO NORMAN!” Until I get to the very end of the series, I will still believe that Norman is still alive. Norman is way to smart and cunning to just give up like that. The one reason why I think he might still be alive is because when they opened the gate door for him, he looked confused as hell. As if what he was expecting wasn’t there, even though he knew he was going to die, so for me that was a hint and little light of hope that he’s still alive somewhere and that they did something else to him.

I recommend this to anyone who wants to read a good manga. Also, I don’t recommend this for the faint hearted. This is a series that will tug your heart all over the place and there are those little faint touches of gore in it as well. For the people who have read it know what I’m talking about. Hope you all enjoy this awesome series as much as I do and yes I do think this is one of those manga that deserves an anime series. Enjoy!

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.

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.

Bonjour Sweet Love Patisserie

Pinterest.comHi everyone!

Did you think that I was going to disappear again for a bit? Well, if you did….your wrong. I’m still here and I plan to keep talking about the things I love with all of you for a long time.

Moving on, the next anime for today is a sweet show called, ” Bonjour Sweet Love Patisserie” made by Silver Link and Connect. Now, the first thing I thought when I looked at the title was too things and that is its going to in France and there are going to be a lot of sweets involved. Turns out, I was half right!

Sweets of all kinds are being shown throughout each episode (much to my satisfaction) and this show takes place in Japan not France. But, there is a cute and energetic dessert making teacher from France that shows up in the show often. He turns out to be my favorite character in the show because he’s so simple minded, hyper and cute as hell! So, if you think about I was right about the French thing and sweets.

In the show, it revolves around a sweet and shy girl names Sayuri Haruno who won a scholarship to an elite confectionery school where most of the students are from high society. Knowing that little bit kind of reminded me of Haruhi in Ouran Host Club where she was also a scholarship student in an elite school. So, when I thought  along those lines I kind of assumed the comedy was going to be similar. The show was funny, but in a different sense than what you would see in Ouran Host Club. Anyway, she’s a scholarship student trying to become best pastry chef around like her father before.

I think Sayuri’s parents might be dead. The reason being that you never actually see them; you only see them in the family photo twice in the entire show with both of their faces glared out by the sun. Also, she never mentions them or talks about them and the subject never comes up in the show, so I don’t know for sure if their really dead or not. It might reveal that in the manga because the show ain’t giving nada and you know why?

IT’S BECAUSE EACH EPISODE IS EXACTLY 5 MINUTES LONG!!!

You heard me right, each episode is only five minutes and I can’t think of a reason why it would be. As you all can probably guess it didn’t take me long to go through all 24 episodes. For me, who expects an anime episode to at least last 20 to 30 minutes this was a bit of weird change to me. Everytime I thought something else would happen the credits would pop up, so I felt the episodes were incomplete.

Nevertheless, it was still I good short no matter how ridiculously short the episodes were. If you want to know more details than the anime gives you than feel more than free to read the manga or even play the mobile game from which the anime originated from. It’s a cute little story with several good looking guys making sweets that made my mouth water. If we had the technology, I would have stuck my hand in the tv and grabbed all the sweets they made.

If you’re looking for an adorable show to kill the time and are in love with sweets like I am (and the guys of course!) then I think you should try watching this show.

Thanks for Watching

 

 

Darwin’s Game

Egmont Manga.comThis time I’ll be talking about a manga called, “Darwin’s Game” by Flipflops…….yes, the creators really call themselves Flipflops. Deal with it.

Moving on, just from looking at the title alone my initial thought about this series was that it was going to be about some kind of game having to do with extinction and evolution  of some kind. Turns out I was kind of right, but in a different sense. In the beginning, the story just jumps right in with a murder. The main character’s friend who has been missing for the last couple of days gets killed by someone wearing a panda loving baseball mascot outfit. But, right before Kyoda gets killed he sends an SOS link to Sudo Kaname in order for him to get help. Well, we all know how that turns out.

Of course, when Kaname gets the link he clicks on it just because he’s super curious and not knowing how much this will change his life forever. Darwin’s Game is a social networking game, so when you enter or activate the game all you would be doing is be transported to somewhere else in reality or for your opponent vice versa. The moment you sign up for the game a snake comes out of your screen and bites you on the neck which activates a power within you to help fight against other players.

While reading it I noticed some people get really cool powers and some get really shitty ones. I guess it really depends on the person. For our guy, Kaname gets an unknown power that the game itself hasn’t seen in a while and of course it takes him a while to figure out what that power is. His power is summoning anything he’s at least seen once to himself which is quite handy. Also, to everyone in the game it became quite obvious that not only was he powerful, but became quite the prodigy when it came to playing. Kaname’s goal is to beat the game which he himself doesn’t even know what that means, but its better than the alternative method to getting out of the game.

Death.

This series is still ongoing, so please have some patience or if you don’t have any then just wait for the series to be complete then you can read it. So far its really good and it actually reminded me of a similar series called “Alive-The Final Evolution”. It was kind of similar in the way of powers and fighting to the death and all that, but without the technology and yes, the Alive manga is complete. So, you can go ahead and read this one if you haven’t already while the other finishes up.

If you like action, cute girls, powers and conspiracy then you should put this on your read next list. I don’t recommend this for people who don’t like violence and light gore, but seriously though what manga doesn’t have violence in it nowadays? Hope you enjoy the manga.

Thanks for Reading!

Tanya the Evil

www.anime-now.comHi guys!

Today, I’m going to be talking about this awesome anime called, “Tanya the Evil” by Carlo Zen and Shinobu Shinotsuki. I heard about this anime through a friend of mine who knows I have dark and twisted preferences when it comes to anime and video games.  So, when I was told about this show, I knew I had to watch it and sure enough it did not disappoint me one bit.

It’s about a cruel and very logical businessman in the modern world who gets killed and when he does he has a conversation with God who he later calls ,”Being X”, about why he doesn’t believe in him. After their conversation, Being X decides to reincarnate him as a little girl named, “Tanya”, and into another world and tells him that if he doesn’t believe in him by the time he dies in his next life he will never be reincarnated again.

Let me tell you guys that Tanya is the most vicious little girl that I’ve ever seen and she’s super cute, too. Her cuteness puts everyone that she meets off guard until she does something crazy and dangerous. I think Erich is scared of her the most out of everybody, if he knew her story I don’t think he would surprised at this point. I think he’s expecting her to grow horns or something. Tanya’s job is a military mage who fights for the empire ,apparently, she becomes so good at her job that she quickly gets promoted to major ends up forming her own battalion.

Anime-Planet.comBeing X does everything in his power to mess with Tanya and when I say mess I mean kill horribly as fast as possible. Every time he decides to show up he stops time and posses something to talk through which is most of the time a person or a doll. Being X better hope that Tanya never finds a way to hurt him or he’ll be in big trouble, but I really doubt that he will anytime soon.

Anyway, I really like this anime for many reasons and one of them is obviously the characters, mainly Tanya’s evil self. The dark atmosphere of the entire show and the battle scenes. This show really needs a season 2 really, really badly. I hope one comes out real soon. If you like dark type anime, supernatural stuff and battle scenes then you really need to watch this.

Cubism Love

MangaHome.comThe manga ‘Cubism Love’, was created by Shibamura, Yuri and it was very lovely one to read. It’s about a girl named Noriko who gets into a car accident and the only thing that survives is her brain that they stuff inside a black box. Her doctor/savior is Dr. Shinoda is her caretaker and as time passes becomes not only her friend but love interest in his heart warming story.

The manga but is a bit short for my liking but it was still a nice read. Its one of those stories where you fall in love with whats inside instead of outside. Yes, there is a happy ending to all this if you can believe it. Even all the sci-fi technology and design babies that they end up adding to the story, it will all come together in the end. Like I said before I wish it was longer but still a nice little heartwarming story that I hope you all will enjoy, too.

Thanks for reading!

 

 

Riddle Story of the Devil

rorymuses.wordpress.comHello everyone! Its been a while since I lasted posted anything, but right now I’m about to talk the anime Riddle Story of Devil or also known as Akuma no riddle. This anime was really fun to watch and it was hilarious all the way through. It’s about a group teenage girl assassins who get called in from all over the world to participate in Class Black.

Class Black is an event where assassins are selected go to a regular high school and pretend to be students while also trying to eliminate the target before the rest of her classmates. Whoever kills the target first will have any one wish granted. The person who we revolve around is Tokaku Azuma, who is a low-key badass my book. She comes from a long line of assassins that make her feared among her classmates and she’s as cold as ice.

The second main character and the unfortunate target in this year’s Class Black is Haru, a cheery and naive girl that wants to be friends with everyone. She was so freaking naive that sometimes that I just wanted to punch her in the face because no matter how bad things got and no matter how hard everyone was trying to kill her, she kept trying to be friends with them as if that was going to change their minds or something. I kept looking at the screen sometimes like,” Can someone slap her, please?”

In the beginning, Tokaku became so intrigued with Haru that, even though, she was sent there to kill her like everyone else, she decided that she was going to protect her instead. I loved every character in this show even the oblivious teacher that had no clue what was happening the entire time. My favorite would have to be Mahiru/Shinya Banba, they were both crazy and super weird and they both made me laugh every time they showed up. Also, I was very shocked at her weapon of choice which was a freaking sledge hammer! I was scared for Haru when she decided to try killing her it was like watching a horror movie with the crazy psycho.

weareanime-cosplay.comThis is a great anime and if you love hot girls (no matter how crazy and dangerous they are), action, mystery and friendship then all of you will definitely love this show and the manga, too.

Thanks for Reading!

Masamune-kun’s Revenge

Image result for masamune-kun no revenge
Source: MyAnimeList.com

The manga series and newly made anime show Masamune-kun no Revenge was made by Hazuki Takeoka. It’s about these two kids who got separated after an emotional blow to their relationship and happen to meet in school after not seeing each other for years. There are some problems though…….the old childhood friend (Aki) didn’t recognize him and Masamune hates her guts.

In this story, Masamune was really fat as a kid and had no friends except for Aki but one day out of the blue, she completely rejects him and gives him the nickname ‘Piggy’ which everyone at his old school called him all the time while growing up. Totally humiliated beyond belief, he made it his sole goal to one day get back at her. His plan was to get Aki to some day fall in love with him and then reject her in the worst way possible. Its too bad Aki seems to have mastered the ‘Rejection Technique‘.

Aki has earned the name ‘Cruel Princess‘ in her high school. The reason being that whenever a guy confesses their love for her, she finds the humiliating and worst way possible to reject them and then gives them an awful nickname for her to call them. I find it all pretty funny that she goes through so much just to tell them no. But, still let’s Masamune into her social circle after hating guys so much.

The entire series is pretty funny and I don’t know who I find more hilarious though. My favorite character would have to be Yoshino who is Aki’s personal maid and best friend. I think I like her because she kind of reminds me of myself personality wise and is really funny in her own way when she helps or torments Masamune. I’m not going to spoil it for anyone, but I’ll just say theirs more going on than you think at first. You realize later that not everything is so cut and dry in the story.

The manga and the show are still on going so I’m waiting just as patiently as you guys are and I can’t wait to see how it turns out for the both of them. I hope you guys enjoy this romance-comedy as much as I have so far.

Thanks for Reading!
