Parasyte

Everyone has bad habits here and there and for me this particular bad habit of mine sometimes gets on my last nerve because I end up getting mad at myself in the end. I don’t know if other people have a problem with this but when I’m not sure of something like a game or anime, I seem to hold off on it because I instantly think that its not my cup of tea. Later though, when I finally go fuck it and try the game or episode I get angry in the end because I find out how good it is and why I didn’t try it sooner.

That’s how I felt after watching one episode of Parasyte. After, the first episode ended I was totally hooked on it and had to see more.  This was made by Hitoshi Iwaaki who created the manga and the actual anime series was created by Madhouse. This anime revolves around a teenage boy named Shinichi who is nerdy looking, nervous and friendly towards anyone that he meets. He also has a total crush on red-headed girl named Murano who for some strange reason keeps asking him from time to time,” Are you really Shinichi Izumi?”

It kind of pissed me off every time she asked throughout the entire show. I mean, why does she keep asking that? Would it make her feel different if he said no, but she already knows its him so why does she keep freaking asking him that same stupid question? I actually got really happy when he told her to shut up after she asked that same damn question for like the hundredth time to him while he was in bad ass mode. To tell you guys the truth, I really didn’t like her all that much. Everytime I saw her I always thought that something was a little off about her but I didn’t know what. Wasn’t sure if I wanted to him to end up with Kana either but I’m getting ahead of myself.

Basically, Shinichi was living an ordinary high school life up until one day he wakes up to something digging into his arm. He stopped it from going anywhere else in his body, but the next day he summed it all up as a bad dream until his arm started to transform and talk to him, at least. His arm later named Migi explains that he was going for his brain so he could take over his body and eat humans for nourishment. Later, they keep running into their more people infected and Shinichi has decided that he will get rid of as many parasite infected humans as he can.

Shinichi goes through a lot of shit in this show and sometimes you feel so bad for him. Its never revealed where the parasites come from. They never make it clear, but I’m betting that their aliens because in the first episode they were all falling from their small pods from the sky and none of them have any idea why their even there in the first place. I wish they would have hinted more but I guess we’ll never know. I really like when Shinichi was badass looking with his hair gelled back and everything, he looked really hardcore to me even his personality changed drastically. Again if you watch it or have read it, you’ll see that he goes through a lot of crap. To me it was like his own weird, parasite version of breaking down and rebelling. Again you know what I’m talking about if you’ve seen it.

There is a lot gore and action in this anime and I love it. My only wish was that he would have stayed in badass mode, but oh well. If you like mutants, action, gore and a bit of romance meshed into one then this one is definitely for you. There is so much to like about this anime its crazy, but I know it won’t get a second season.

No point, really.

The ending is so heart warming and funny at the same time that I thought I was going to cry for a minute. This is worth watching especially for people who are fans of sci-fi and horror anime. Hope you enjoy it!

Assassination Classroom

Source: http://www.anime-verlast.blogspot.com

Just as the title suggests this class is for assassins in training only! This anime was made by Yusei Matsui and I’ve got to say this one was really fun to watch. The teens in this story are placed in what I like to call the ” Troublemaker Class” because their school system is fucked up. The school that they go to is really strict and elite, so to everyone that attends that school; grades are everything. If you don’t have good grades then your a pile of shit in their eyes and a waste of time.

 

If that wasn’t bad enough, instead, of kicking the students out so they can find another school to go to their twisted and dark principal, Mr. Asano, decides that he wants to use the failing students as examples to the other kids as to what will happen to you if your grades start to slip. I think the principal is a really dark and sadistic person and his son is no better. During the show, I didn’t know what would be worse if the principal stayed in power the whole time or the son taking over.

Anyway, these students are miserable since their lives suck but one day out of nowhere the freaking moon explodes. Then, national security comes into their classroom dragging a very smiley, yellow alien that claims to have blown up the moon and then says that he’ll do the same thing to Earth and that the only way he’ll stop his plans is if one of the students is able to assassinate him within a year. From that day on the Assassination Classroom was born!

This show was really hilarious and exciting to watch. While I was watching it, I was wondering why I haven’t watched it sooner. My favorite characters besides, Korosensei, would have to be Karma and Nagisa. Karma came off as a psychotic badass to me and I already knew that he was going to drive Korosensei insane. Later, in the story you’ll find out that theirs more to him than that and for all we know he could be the principal’s son’s long lost twin brother.

I mean really now? Did the creators for this anime just suddenly get lazy one day and just recycle Karma’s character and think we wouldn’t notice?! The only difference between the two is their hair color and clothes, that’s it. Nothing else! I’m watching this show to see if either the other characters will notice how similar they are or if by chance they’ll explain this. So far no dice on either scenario.

I like Nagisa, as well, because he was secretly badass. He was that type of guy that I think most people can relate to. Normal guy, even though, he looks like a girl in disguise but doesn’t have a clue what he’s good at until the assassin thing comes in. Turns out, he’s a natural born assassin. He’s starting to become so good that he’s starting to scare his teachers. My favorite thing about Nagisa besides him being awesome are his inner monologues when he fights. I don’t know if I should freak out or laugh, but I certainly enjoy them.

This anime is really entertaining and I encourage anyone to go watch it. They would be missing out if they don’t and yes this is also a manga. So, if you enjoy reading more than watching or want to do both then their you go. My guess on what is going to happen in this story, eventually,  is that the year goes by and no one has killed him so everyone freaks out, but he ends up not blowing up the planet because he had such a nice time with everyone. Again that’s just a guess on what I think is going to happen. I really hope that this anime gets a season 2, it really deserves another season.

Martin Mystery

This older cartoon called “Martin Mystery”  which revolves around three people who work for “The Center.” The Center is a secret organization that investigates paranormal activities all around the world. The three agents that they send are Martin, Diana and Java.

Martin is a normal teenage boy who loves to flirt with pretty girls but mostly ends up making himself look like a fool in front of them. Also, he seems to be the main character and leader of the group much to Diana’s dismay. Diana is Martin’s step-sister who is smart and seems to be the common sense in the group and loves telling Martin how stupid he could be sometimes.

In the beginning of the show it doesn’t really make it clear that what their relationship was. Almost, immediately, I felt a love connection between the two so I thought at first that they could be two people who haven’t yet become a couple. So, I was really surprised to find out that they were actually siblings. Turns out though that in the comic they were lovers but decided to change it so they would end up siblings instead.

Anyway, the team’s last member is Java, the cave man. I don’t just say that he’s a cave man just because he looks like one, its because he actually is one. They found his body in an iceberg and made him an addition to the group. Now he serves as Martin and Diana’s friend and the team’s muscle.

When ‘The Center’ calls them for an assignment, Martin uses his high tech watch to find a portal in the school that takes them to The Center. Sometimes, the portals end up in the most ridiculous of places and I kind of wonder how no one hasn’t gotten suspicious.

As I watched the show, I thought that Men in Black had a lot of influence in it. Aliens and other creatures worked in the organization, they got cool gadgets and no one knew what they did. This show is filled with aliens, ghosts, zombies and other paranormal beings that you can think of and also filled with romance, comedy and friendship. It is really enjoyable to watch.

Space Dandy Season 2

Source: http://www.sentionaut-plus.tumblr.com

Space Dandy season 2 is a the continuation of what Dandy and his crew was doing in the first season. Just to give you all a recap of what the show is about, it’s about a team of alien hunters that go all across the universe trying to catch rare aliens for money. Unfortunately, for them they never really catch anything. They’ve had some close calls before but still haven’t caught anything.

Their hunting skills have gotten so bad that Scarlet, who is an inspector who works for the registration center actually suggests to Dandy and his team that they should just think about a career change. Which hurt their pride immensely, but its like they do anything they anything. Meow, the cat alien just eats, sleep and play video games or go on social networks. The robot, QT, just follows the crew around and keeps telling the rest of them how useless they are and Space Dandy, the leader of the team, is the one who causes most of the trouble and sometimes gets them out of it, too.

Oh and I forgot to mention that Gogol Empire is still after Dandy because they believe that he holds the secret to them winning the war against the other empire. They are still trying to capture them with no luck on their part either. For some reason, they think that Dandy is some kind of genius that keeps trying to avoid them at every turn. But, Dandy isn’t even aware that their trying to capture him in the first place!

I wonder when their going to ever capture Dandy and see  what happens next.

My favorite episodes so far are There’s Music in the Darkness, Baby and I Can’t be the Only One, Baby. In the episode, There’s Music in the Darkness, Baby, Dandy disband his team and then gets a letter of invitation from a rare and creepy alien who he thinks when he gets a letter is a pretty girl alien. Turns out he invited him so he could freeze him and steal his smile.

In the other episode, I Can’t be the Only One, Baby was very funny in my opinion. Space Dandy and his crew end up going to parallel universes where they kept meeting different versions of themselves. Personally, my favorite parallel universe Dandys’ were the first one with the blue hair and one who kept doing Michael Jackson moves. Why he kept doing that was beyond me?

How this hilarious season is going to end is beyond me. Will the Gogol Empire finally  capture Dandy? Will they ever get good at alien hunting? Will Dandy ever get a girlfriend? Will Dandy ever be able to buy the franchise called BooBies? Who knows, but I’m excited to find out.

Generator Rex

Watching “Generator Rex” brought a lot of old fond memories back. This show surrounds a teenage boy named Rex who has the power to grow and control machines to defeat EVOs. EVOs are humans that get turned into evil looking monsters because of an incident that happened 5 years ago. Five years ago, a group of scientists wanted to help humanity combat injuries and diseases by creating little machines called “Nanites”. Which I think was a good idea if the rich people funding the project didn’t mess up completely. They caused a huge explosion that not only taking out a lot of people, but the Nanites that they created spread across the globe and infected every living thing.

The Nanites end up mutating the eco system and the very people themselves turning them into monsters. What’s worse is that their seems to no cure for the never ending plague…….until now. Rex is the only person with the power to fight and cure EVOs. Their was a lot of mystery around Rex. He didn’t know his last name, where he came from, if he had any family or why he has these powers in the first place. But, don’t worry as you watch you’ll find they will give us hints and flashbacks to help us with finding the answers. The mystery thickens when Van Kleiss, Rex’s arch nemesis, appears. He appears to know more about Rex and who he is than anyone else it seems, but it doesn’t look like he’ll be revealing anything to us anytime soon.

If I had to choose my favorite episodes from this series, it would be “Night Falls” and the Ben/Generator Rex crossover. I liked the “Night Falls “episode they created werewolf type EVO that I liked plus another showdown between Rex and Hunter Cain. I also liked when they put Ben 10 into the mix for two episodes and mess with Rex a little. I don’t think Rex could process what Ben knew and what he could do all that well, but they proved to be a good team. I hope they get to work together again before the season ends.

Generator Rex is really funny to watch. I love watching Rex and his partner Bobo fight EVOs and pull pranks on everyone that they meet. The show will keep you entertained as we try to figure out Rex’s past and what it has to do with him now.

Young Justice

I loved the idea about a show where the sidekicks would be running the show. So, when Cartoon Network finally aired Young Justice I had to watch it. When I first watched it one of my favorite characters was Robin and not just because I knew and everybody else knew who he was. I loved his little devious personality where he likes to cause mischief and mess around with his enemies before taking them down. Next, is Aqualad who is used to live in Atlantis before deciding to want to live on the surface world. He is the leader of the team and likes to use water magic. Aqualad is a very serious type of guy who doesn’t let his feelings on anything get in the way of how to judge a situation.

Megan or better known as Ms. Martian is obviously a martian who traveled to Earth to become part of the Young Justice team. My first impression of her is that she is really perky and sometimes can be totally clumsy when she isn’t thinking. My thoughts were confirmed when I saw in the show that, whenever, she would start ranting about something she would make a mess of things or when they all started to go to school, she became part of the cheerleading squad. All in all, Megan is just really, really girly.

Now that I’ve talked a little about Megan, we know go to Conner another character that I grow fond of. In the very first episode and mission, they discover a younger clone of Superman who later became known has Superboy. Conner has a lot of anger issues and for obvious reasons. He was a clone, everyone thought that Conner was Superman’s son, Superman didn’t want anything to do with him and the list of problems goes on and on. Most of his angry outbursts that you’ll see while watching were either directed at the team or to Megan. Now at first Megan became public enemy number one for Conner when she started using her mind powers to communicate with everyone in the beginning. If you’ve already watched to show then you know why this was a serious problem. But, later in the show Megan and Conner become attached to each other, which I wasn’t surprised at, at all.

Our last two team members of Young Justice would have to be Kid Flash and Artemis. Kid Flash or also known as Wally is the Flash’s sidekick and is a total jokester. He’ll say and do things that will really make you laugh, but totally piss off his teammates. You’ll find that he’s quite the flirt no matter how unsuccessful his flirting attempts are with the ladies. Now Artemis was a bit tricky. The moment you see her, you know that she’s hiding something plus she didn’t quite join the team under good terms. When Young Justice was formed, Speedy who later changed his name to Red Arrow; decided to go solo because he thought that this new team was a joke and a waste of time and left to do hero work that he thought was worth his time. The team was a bit sore when he left and it didn’t help matters when they brought Artemis in who was also an archer. They kind of felt like that she was his replacement.

You’ll definitely get sucked into the show. Everyone is hiding a secret, what kind of secret is only revealed after you watch the show. Its filled with action, mystery, comedy and drama. That you don’t want to miss. I am aware that their seem to be more than one season to Young Justice and I can’t wait to watch them and talk about them later.

Yobi, The Five Tailed Fox

This animation movie is about a young girl named Yobi. Well, no one knows how old she really is because she’s actually a fox that possesses magical powers. What she likes doing the most is turning herself into a ten year old girl.

For some reason, an alien race of furry aliens crash land on Earth and have been trying since then to go back to their planet. They are so weird and one of them likes repeating what the other one says. Then, one day one of them that’s considered a ‘troublemaker’ within the group gets yelled at forcing him to leave, which then leads to him getting himself captured by the kids at a nearby school. The school seems to be a school for the oddballs or outcasts of society. It did hint that some of these kids have some issues that need to be resolved.

The rest of the aliens feeling bad for him want to try to rescue him, so they ask Yobi to infiltrate the school and get their friend back. That is where the story begins. This movie absolutely cute and heart warming. You know that Yobi wants to be human, but she’s kind hearted enough to not take extreme or evil measures to get it. Unlike Mr.Shadow, who I had thought was a good guy at first when I saw him helping her get away from the hunter several times.

My favorite characters would have to be Yobi, Jung Jong-ee and Geum-ee. Jong-ee was this cute little girl who didn’t speak and for some strange reason, she always had to be hugging something. First, it was her oversized teddy bear and then she turned her attention to the alien. Geum-ee was this nice guy who wanted to be a comedian and liked spending time with Yobi. I liked watching the puppy love develop between the two, even though, Yobi had no clue that she was in love in the first place.

This movie is filled with adventure, mystery, magic and a glimpse of the supernatural world. I loved this movie and I can’t wait to see more. I really think that watching Yobi, The Five Tailed Fox is a total must see!
