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.
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.
Haida 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.
Today I’ll be ranting about the very popular action-adventure God of War game that came out this spring. It was developed by Santa Monica Studio and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment.
The story revolves not only around Kratos but his son, Atreus, as well. Their story starts with the game trying to pull at your heart-strings by showing the Krato’s new wife’s funeral. Sad, right?
I swear this man can’t have anybody without them dying on him for some strange reason. Speaking of strange reason, the game never reveals how she died. Was she sick? Did someone kill her? Was it some kind of freak accident? Or was it her time because this was dated back in the days where everyone didn’t have access to medicine, treatments and all that? I guess we’ll never know.
I have my own theory about why and how she died, but if I would to get into that I would have to spoil a couple of things for the people who haven’t played this game yet. It’s a big reveal about who she was which is why I’ve decided not to talk about it this time.
Moving on with the father and son duo, so before she died she told them to spread her ashes at the top of the tallest mountain in all the realms. Set out to do just that the duo head on their first journey together towards the mountain. Now for anyone whose played a God of war game in the past knows that Kratos is a badass and can take care of himself, but now he has a child with him that has never left the forest and is about to see a lot of different things.
At first, Kratos tries to make this boy grow up fast because he really doesn’t know how to parent. He pretty much left that up to the wife almost the whole time, but as time goes by in the game you see them get closer and closer. It’s really heart warming to see the bond between father and son get stronger and stronger.
Some people who I’ve watched play the game get upset about his new fighting style because they were so used to one way that Kratos fights and that’s okay. Don’t worry guys, his fighting gets better. Trust me!
Also, I wanted to say that some people are basing off what they know about Norse mythology from Disney and Marvel movies. That is a NO NO! Let me explain, when certain people saw certain things happen with the Norse gods in the game they get confused about why this and that happened when in the Marvel movie it was totally different. You have to understand that the way the Marvel movies made the gods out to be isn’t the same as the real story behind it. They just picked and chose certain details that they thought would be interesting or better yet make them as close as the comics as possible. So, you have to read the actual lore in order to get some things that happened in this game. If you don’t want to that’s fine, too.
Glad to get that off my chest. I know I went a little off topic there but that’s okay. This game’s graphics and storyline go beyond its previous standards and if you’ve seen the ending then you already know that theirs another God of War game already in the woodwork for our enjoyment. Now, this is just my opinion but I think this next game will be its last and I’m just going off what I’ve seen in the game. If you like adventure, action, gore or fantasy then this game is for you! See you next time!
I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July this year. If not I hope this new comic that I discovered will make your day a little brighter.
This story is called, “Phantom Paradise” which was made by Rurisen (L. Zhu) and its about a young boy named, Hayate, who tells his side of the story and how he became the enemy’s emperor after swearing to his best friend that they would both one day help take down the queen of phantom paradise and go to heaven.
It goes into Hayate’s past of when they were younger and how he became the way he did. Just from reading a chapter or two you realize that he’s not evil, just misunderstood. That he had to make the tough decisions in his past to get where he his now while his best friend was suffering from a demonic coma the entire time this was taking place. From the way the world is described I would say it would be some kind of spirit world or purgatory. That’s because everyone who lives there is aware of spirits, ghosts and demons and that they all had previous lives before they got there.
They don’t really go into detail of each characters pasts since this is still an ongoing story, but until they do I suggest you use your imagination. Now, you’ll notice quickly in this story that women are the dominant gender in that world which I wouldn’t have a problem with if it wasn’t for the fact that almost every female character in this story is an evil bitch! Women are more superior to men in Phantom Paradise because of the fact that they can use magic and have become stronger than men in combat.
The only use that men have in this world are their mana which women can absorb to make themselves stronger which is why men are either a woman’s concubine, servant, slave, husband, etc. Pretty much the system is the more men you have under the more powerful that woman happens to be which is probably why the queen is so damn powerful. Speaking of the queen, it hasn’t been explained as to why she’s a skeleton yet in the story which I find odd. When I first saw her I thought she was only wearing a skeleton mask, but then you see later that her whole body is that way.
Does she make her body that way only when she’s in public?
Is it a curse?
Is she so old that her body melted away and the only thing keeping her alive is her magic?
I don’t know and we may never know this answer until the creator decides to put it in the story. If some of you already know the answer by any chance, don’t hesitate to tell me in the comments below. Back to Hayate, he becomes a concubine in training in the royal palace and he constantly has to fend off other trainees, jealous concubines, ghosts, monsters while staying under the radar so nobody finds out that he can do Magic!
Yes. ladies and gentlemen, you heard it right he can do magic which as you know no man in Phantom Paradise was able to do. But, it’s not just the fact he can do magic that makes him important its it the fact of his true identity which if the wrong people found out would do everything in their power to make sure he ceases to exist. What is his true identity you ask?
Well, your going to have to read it in order to find out the answer. This is very good story that will suck you really quick. If your into cute guys, fantasy, action and the supernatural then you’ve got to give this comic a try and see how you like it.
Have another great game to tell you all today. It is called, ‘Detroit: Become Human’ which was developed by Quantic Dream and published Sony Interactive Entertainment. It is one of the newest and popular games that is causing a buzz in the gamer world where your choices decide how the story plays out. I became extremely excited to get my hands on this game after playing the demo.
Let me get into the meat of the story, its revolves around three different androids with the names Markus, Kara and Connor. Markus is an android that takes care of an old kind-hearted man who is a world-renowned artist. Kara is an android to be a maid and caregiver to Todd and his daughter, Alice. Connor is the first ever detective android that was sent by Cyberlife to find the cause for the growing reports of deviants appearing not only in the city, but all over the world.
Deviants is the name given to androids that have malfunctioned and have started to express emotions and thoughts on their own. The humans become scared of this problem in the androids because they don’t know the cause and aren’t sure what would happen if their android suddenly turned and decided to no longer take orders from their owners. After, playing this game it reminds me so much of what happened in the past when their were people owning slaves. The only differences between the two is that it’s not about different colors, but a different species and that it has a modern touch to it, as well.
This game will tug on your heart in so many ways that you won’t know what emotion to feel anymore. You’ll find out that if you don’t think fast enough, you could make things go terribly wrong for yourself very fast in this game. Speaking of thinking fast, I recommend you enjoy the intense stress that is sure to come while playing this game and make spot on decisions instead of pausing the game so you could ‘stop and think about it’. Its way more fun that way in my opinion.
I’ll say that you don’t get the outcome that you’re looking for then don’t fret. You can always go back later and change things to get a different ending and there are so many paths that you can choose from that it’ll make your head spin! I suggest that you go through the game once without going back, so you can experience everything with your honest choices. I really, really enjoyed this game and I hope that they’re already in the woodwork to make another just as good or even better.
Today I’ll be talking about the movie, “COCO”, which was produced by Pixar Animation Studios. It revolves around a boy named Miguel, who is a part of a music hating, shoe making family. It all started when his great-great grandfather left his family to pursue his career in music and never returned. His wife hating him for leaving her alone to raise their only daughter by herself, banned music from the family and proclaimed that it was a curse that would one day tear the family apart.
Even though, music ruined their family a long time ago that still doesn’t stop Miguel from loving it with all his heart. After, discovering that a famous musician named, Ernesto de la Cruza, could possibly be his great-great grandfather, he somehow finds himself teleported to the land of the dead. In this place, he meets his dead relatives and a lot of other interesting characters.
If I had to choose who my favorite characters would be then it would have to be Alanna and Edward. Alanna is that head strong woman who loves her family will do anything for them. Try not to get on this woman’s bad side though, if her fierce temper doesn’t get you then her giant panther guardian will.
I liked Hector in this story because even though he looked like a bum at first glance it turns out that he’s got a heart of gold. During the movie, he always made time for other people and helped them out even when no else would in return. It was sad to see that no one could help him out to his see his family because his photo had been removed years ago. Now, he’s super desperate because he’s starting to become forgotten by the living. In the Land of the Dead, when everyone in the living world has forgotten you then you pretty much cease to exist in the afterlife.
That’s a scary thought which is why the living put in a lot of effort to remember them for one night which they call ‘The Day of the Dead’.
This movie is really heart warming and exciting. It shows that family is everything and you don’t know how important it is until its gone. One of things I loved in this story was all the art in colors. Also, there is a twist in the story that I never some coming which is something because I’m pretty good at predicting what happens in movies. I won’t tell you what happens in this adventurous story your just going to watch it for yourself. I enjoyed it and I hope you will, too.
I’m back and with another game to tell you all about. This one is called, “Yomawari: Midnight Shadows and it was developed by Nippon Ichi Software and was released last year in October and for good reason. This is survival horror about two young girls trying to find each other in the middle of the night after being separated by an evil spirit.
This game loves to surprise you in ways that I didn’t know were possible like in the beginning of the game it asks to turn off all the lights and asks you to look at the screen closely. It’ll even ask did you do it, so it makes you wonder if the game somehow knows if you did it or not. It would have been awesome if it could tell if you were lying or not. Anyway, I liked how you’re not even safe even when you look at an item on your menu because there are times when a spirit refuses to be ignored and by passes that screen. I’m not going to spoil it by telling you which moments so prepare your heart for that.
Our two main characters in this story are Haru and Yui. Haru being the main protagonist in this story, but they do switch between to the two from time to time. The game starts off with a very disturbing and dark start when Yui decides to end it all and hangs herself on a tree for reasons unknown. Then, the story goes back for what I can guess hours before the separation of the two girls which confused me at first because I wasn’t sure if Yui was dead or not yet.
This is my theory about the inner working of the story, so Yui killed herself but I think that her mind was being manipulated by the evil spirit in the beginning for her to do so. The reason being is that little girls don’t really think about stuff like suicide in my opinion until there a little older to comprehend it, also the fact that she thinks that she’s still alive and looking for Haru plays a big part in my theory. From what I can guess is that Yui had such a strong desire to see Haru that after she interacted with Haru for that short amount of time, she accidently pulled Haru into the spirit world with her. That’s why during Haru’s search for Yui she sees all these monsters and ghosts and hasn’t put two and two together, she just thinks weird things happening tonight and nothing more.
Haru has a heart of steel to be running around in the dead of night looking for her best friend while avoiding all these ghosts wandering around town. I know if I was in this situation I wouldn’t be doing that I would run home, tell my parents and they would go and form a search party or whatever they wanted to do. I wouldn’t blindly run through town at night and next thing you know in the morning everyone is looking for two missing girls instead of one.
On top of that she has to avoid this scissor happy spirit, Kotowari, who tries killing her several times in this game. I don’t know what that ghost’s problem is, but it seems like he has a serious grudge against us. It sucks even more when you don’t have a health bar or anything. The moment you touch anything in the game that’s meant to harm or kill you its instant death. So, don’t be surprised or get frustrated when you end up dying a million times in a million different ways.
The ending to this story will really get you and if your into survival or horror games than I would definitely give this game a shot. I deeply enjoyed the story of these two girls trying to find each other even in this creepy setting. If your faint hearted when it comes to the horror genre then you might want to steer clear of this one. I enjoyed this game very much and I hope you will, too.
Watch this video if you want to get a feel for the game and decide for yourself if you want to give this horror game a try. Enjoy
This “My Dear Cold Bloodied King” comic was made by Lifelight in Webtoons. It’s about a normal peasant girl named, “Mei”, who one day saved someone of great importance to the royal palace against several deadly assassins. Soon after, she gets an invite to stay and live at the palace to train to fight and learn about medicine.
During her stay there she gets suspicious of the ‘Blood King’s’ true intentions of bringing her here. Not one to sit around and wait for the answers to come to her she decides to find out for herself. The results being her revealing the king’s true identity and suddenly becoming engaged to him. Of course, if your already reading the story than you know that her being engaged to him is just so he can protect her because of all the snooping she likes doing, she’s already made some enemies. Plus he thought it would be a good idea to lure out his unfaithful subjects.
Personally, I think this is going to be one of those “I did this to youto protect you and nothing more but I’ve suddenly fallen in love you” situations. For the ones who haven’t read this yet, I’ll just tell you now that most of the main character guys are hot as hell. The main two that I vote for that are the hottest are Katsu and Kozuke and for obvious reasons. If I was Mei then I would go with Kozuke and I think it’s because he’s got that bad ass charm going on, but you know that deep inside that he cares for Mei and is busting into her life so he can fulfill what he promised her all those years ago.
When Mei realizes who Kozuke is to her, she’s going to flip her lip. I don’t know what she’s going to do after because she’s going to have to choose one of these hot male specimens to be with. Now some you are probably wondering why I don’t think Hayate has a chance with Mei and that’s because he likes her for all the wrong reasons. His main reason for wanting to be with her is because she looks just like his old girlfriend, Shiori. When I found that out I got flashbacks of Inuyasha and immediately took him out the running to be Mei’s bae.
This story is a whole wild ride of secrets, love and betrayal. If your into historical, romance, tragedy and action comics/manga then this is right for you. This is still ongoing but you’ll be happy to know that a new chapter comes in every couple of days, so you don’t have to wait as long other mangas that like to take months to years to publish a chapter or two to the world. Sometimes, in the story their clothing and some situations get a little suggestive so be mature when you read it. Other than that this is a really good story that I hope you enjoy as much as I am.
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.
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.
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.
Now 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.
Also, 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!
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.
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.
Kuro 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.
Anyway, 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!
Welcome back everyone! I hope you all are enjoying this lovely spring weather that we’re having.
Today’s manga is another classic type of manga that I’ve realized that I’ve read a long time ago, but nnneevvvverrr talked about it for some reason on my blog. I bet I’m going to suddenly remember a ton of manga/anime that I forgot o mention after this, but it’s all good.
Anatolia Story or better known as Red River was made by Chie Shinohara and is a total of 28 volumes and is completed, so you all don’t have to worry about cliff hangers and waiting months to years waiting for what happens next. It’s about an average high school girl named Yuri who suddenly gets dragged through a random puddle by a lot of outstretched hands to find herself reappearing not only in hundreds of years in the past, but in a total different country to boost. She goes from Japan to reappearing in Hattusa which is the capital of the Hittite Empire in Anatolia.
This girl then meets the Crown Prince of the Hittite Empire,” Prince Kail”, who protects her from the queen after learning of her situation. Basically, the queen brought Yuri to their time and place because she wants to kill her and use her blood for a curse that will kill all of the remaining princes, so that her son can take the throne and rule the empire. Don’t get it twisted though, this is the queen’s idea not the son’s.
This story is full of romance, murder, drama and conspiracy theories, but their were a lot of touching and romantic moments, too. The story will totally blow you away and you end up loving all the interesting characters that show up in this story (except the queen of course). Besides, Prince Kail my other favorite character would have to be, Ramses, who is a Egyptian general striving to become the next Pharaoh. This guy is not only a handsome devil, but is super smart and a total womanizer and to top it has a thing for Yuri!
(sniff sniff) Do I smell a love triangle? I think I do.
I have read and re-read this series over and over during the last couple of years even though I already know what’s going to happen. So, I can tell you its a really good story if your into romance, murder, conspiracy theories, love triangles, action and history. This manga has a little something for everyone. Also, I want to say that you should only read this series if you are of the mature nature because there is a lot nudity and suggestive clothing in this manga. If you are though, then enjoy to your heart’s content.
