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.

Otakon 2017

KnowYourMeme.comHello everyone!

Once again, I’ve got another convention to tell you about. It’s about the all and famous Otakon that happens every year. This year they decided to hold the event in Washington D.C. instead of doing it in Baltimore like they usually do. Granted, I haven’t been to Otakon in about 3 years, but that’s okay.

I’m guessing a lot more people kept showing up every year so they probably had to choose a bigger location than the last one which  is understandable. Otakon is the second most largest convention in the country, so that’s a good reason to go besides liking to just go to cons all the time. A lot of the little things have changed since the last time I went to this con and one of them being the registration. Yes, you can still pre-register or wait until you get there and pay for your badge there, but this time you don’t get the option of doing a single day pass anymore. Your only option is the 3 day pass which is $100.

DMJPhotography.comSo, I suggest that you get your money’s worth and go all three days or make sure you think its worth $100 for attending a day or two if you can’t do all three. Obviously, I thought it was worth it, but other people might not think so.

Their was plenty to do there. Talking to other fellow fans, taking pictures of cosplayers, enjoying the video game room, buying stuff at the dealers room and a lot more. If you don’t plan on spending a lot then I would avoid the dealers room at all costs. Since, they decided to use a different location than last time, the places layout was a lot more confusing to me even with a map. I couldn’t tell you how many times I asked someone for directions.

Even with my loss for direction during my time there, it was still an awesome event and if I’m available next year I’ll definitely be back again.

Experiencing OMG!Con

Tumblr.comThis time I’m going to talk about something different that I’ve never talked about before and that is conventions!

I’ve always wanted to talk about them at some point, but I haven’t gotten the chance to go to any of the ones lately because like most people I work and deal with other life problems that come our way. That’s okay though. I finally was able to go to another anime convention after so long.

Art StallOMG!Con was my second time going to an anime convention and I freaking love going to these events. This one was located in Owensboro, Kentucky on June 9-11. It was freaking awesome as hell! To be surrounded by like-minded people like myself, who are really into anime and like to cosplay and all that good stuff really puts a smile to my face. Before, you guys ask….no I did not cosplay for this event, but someday I will just not this time. Yes, I will take better pictures next time. I was distracted by everything going around me, so I wasn’t too concentrated on the picture-taking while I was there. Until, I master this art….. JUST DEAL WITH IT.

As you can see though, the thing I like most about conventions besides the people, costumes and the vibe is the vendors section. You never know what you’re going to see in that place. You can always find cool stuff there and for a decent price, but this where they always get you. If you don’t got the cash then I would steer clear of the vendor’s section at all costs or they will bleed you dry. This is what I do I scan all the stalls making a mental list of all the things that I want and if I happen to find two of the same item at two different stalls then I find out which one is cheaper before buying instead of being a compulsive shopper.

Anime StallTo me, that’s just common shopper sense, but the main thing is though that I’m always coming out of there with SOMETHING. Never Nothing. I always have to have at least buy something to remember the occasion.

I enjoyed everything that they had to offer to the food to the arcade that they had in there, too. My only regret was going to on the third day which I discovered is what I like to call the ‘winding down’ day. I was so mad at myself, but now I know that when it comes to cons you need to go on the 1st and 2nd day. If you didn’t already know this most conventions last for a full three days and almost always on the weekends because they know that if theirs any days of the week that everyone is off its on the weekend.

I had a great time during this event and if I have the time next year I’ll definitely drop by and see what’s going on. Also, if their are any events that you all recommend that I should go to and see then just let me know in the comments below. Thank you!

Attack on Titan 2

Polygon.comAt last the second season of Attack on Titan has finally come out. It was supposed to come out last year but to our great disappointment, they decide to postpone the release of the new season.

Why?

I don’t know for sure. Maybe it was a marketing thing or a too much going on at once thing. Like I said folks I don’t know why they postponed it, but all that matters now is that it’s finally here for us to enjoy.

Pinterest.comNow, just to let you all know I did read the manga, I’m just watching the show, so I’m getting a surprise every time I watch an episode. The episodes so far have been crazy! There is always this shocking twist at the end that makes you want to go and watch the next episode instantly, but IT DOESN’T EXIST YET which becomes quite frustrating at times. Then again, this is where my long fuse of patience comes in while I wait for the next episode to come out.

In season 2, they’re starting to realize that not everything is as it seems and that Eren isn’t the person out there that can transform into a titan (besides Annie). I loved the recent episode that just came out where we find out that Reiner and Bertolt were the armored and the colossal titan. When they transformed I was like,” I knew it! I knew it!”. I had my suspicions about Reiner for a bit, Bertolt no really. Bertolt looks so damn harmless I was surprised he could turn into something that could cause so much damage.

MyGeekReview.comWhat I want to know is why and how? How are people getting turned into titans? Why are they helping the titans eat the humans? I really want to know what they know because it’s so shocking and persuasive that they were pretty convinced that once Eren went with them that he would be on their side, too. I’m sorry, but I was laughing at Eren’s devastated face when they tried to kidnap him. His face said,” Everything I know is a lie!” I was dying.

Poor Eren, he did not see that coming.

I’m so pumped up for this season. I can’t wait to find out what happens this time around; they can’t make episodes fast enough for me. So far, I’m giving this season a 4 out of 5. Looking forward to see how things turn out in the end.

Yuri on Ice

Polygon.comGood morning everyone! This week I’ll be talking about a show called “Yuri on Ice” by Sayo Yamamoto and Mitsuro Kubo. This anime last year and I heard so much buzz about it that I had to watch and I have to say this show was the most beautiful and hilarious anime that I have seen in a while. It was totally awesome and it blew me away to the point where I was crying that the season was over.

This anime revolves around figure skating and a guy named Yuri. Yuri had natural talent in the sport but has very low self-esteem and would occasionally self destruct every time he went out to compete. It got so bad that he decided to run and hide back in his hometown and stuff his face with food after he got last place in the national championship. Don’t know if you guys know this but figure skaters need to maintain a lean and light figure similar to a ballerina or they’ll most likely hurt themselves or fall flat on their face while performing. Anyway, while he’s at home his idol Victor Nickiforov takes notice of him and decides to put his own skating career on hold to personally coach Yuri. Victor claims that not only will he help him get back into the ISU Grand Prix but he will win 1st place, too.

TheDailyDot.comVictor is a beautiful man, but a ruthless coach. I couldn’t tell you how many times I busted out laughing because Victor holds his friendly smile while ripping Yuri a new one whenever he messed up. If theirs one thing that confused me the entire time I watched this anime is that I couldn’t determine if Yuri and Victor were gay or not or that they were even a couple as the story progressed. Some of things that I learned while watching is that Victor is very affectionate; he likes hugging kissing people all the time he’s just naturally friendly like that, but most of the time he does it to Yuri so it makes you think that their together. Also, Chris is not only the most obviously gay man in this entire show but my favorite character. I loved watching this guy especially when he was out on the ice. I started laughing at his routine mostly because of his inner monologue. I have a sinking suspicion that Chris likes figure skating because of some kinky sexual thrill.

If you’ve watched it then you know what I’m talking about.

RapsodieEspagnole.comI didn’t think it was possible but I haven’t been this excited about figure skating since watching Blades of Glory which we all know is a good freaking movie. I was sad to realize I was on the last episode until discovered that a SEASON 2 IS COMING SOON! That’s right folks the creators of Yuri on Ice have announced that they are in the making of a second season and that it should be released some time this year. I’m so freaking excited about it, you know I’ll be keeping my eye out for it.

For all of you, that love a good story with funny characters, figure skating or hot guys performing on ice then I suggest that you make this your next conquest on anime shows to watch. If some of you are unable to endure long hours of what could be or could not be gay love then I’m sorry that your going to miss out. This is a really awesome show and I can’t wait until the next season comes out.

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.

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.

Corpse Party: Blood Drive

Source: thevitalounge.net

I really love the Corpse Party series from the manga all the way to all of the video games they made. Corpse Party has been getting more and more popular over the years because of the incredible horror/mystery surrounding it. This one was made by Makoto Kedōin and developed by Team GrisGris. For those of you who don’t know what Corpse Party is about; it’s about a group of teenagers who decide to perform the Sachiko Forever Charm which is said to anyone who performs the charm will be together forever. Unfortunately, right after they perform the ritual an earthquake starts shaking the entire school and not long after they find themselves in an entirely different school filled with tortured souls and killer ghosts.

It’s a pretty cool show and I recommend anyone who likes horror or mystery to watch it. Just don’t get too attached to any of the characters…….they might not live too long.

 

The latest Corpse Party game is called Corpse Party Blood Drive and I already got freaked out by it by playing the first five minutes of it. You guys may not know it, but I tend to stay away from horror games just because I don’t like jump scares all that much. I will play them from time to time, but only if I think I can handle it. Corpse Party was the exception because I like the series so much. I thought it was going to be like the previous where there’s mostly talking and you have to move here and there to find stuff to move on.

Boy, was I way off with this one. .

The previous games is just like I said before they mostly talk and find stuff while avoiding ghosts, but it wasn’t that scary. They completely changed the game with this one though. In this game, after all the crap happened in the other ones and they finally escaped the school. It turns out that dark powers of the school were becoming so strong that they didn’t even need to drag all the way to the school after you performed the charm to torment or kill you. If you did it in the real world, your horrible death was pretty much guaranteed to happen. Also, Ayumi stupidly goes back to Heavenly Host after a strange boy tells her that the curse has expanded and she is the only one that can stop it. Again I thought it was a stupid move to go back at all. First off, you’re taking the advice of a complete stranger that seems to know all about you.(creeper alert!) Then, she decides it would be perfectly fine to right back after she just back from there by her fucking self!!! Her stupidity meter went up the freaking charts when she decided to do that.

During that part before she was about to go, I thought it would give me an option or something but that didn’t happen. So, I had to watch make her do these things while I shook my head at her and called her a selfish dumbass. Also, theirs a lot more of the adventure feature in this game and a lot more running away from ghosts, you just don’t know when their going to show up and start chasing you all over the place!

 

I’m not going to tell you how this game ends, but a lot of epic and crazy shit happens in this game. So, if you don’t mind a nice little horror game to pass the time then by all means play it and see how you like it.

Side Note: To all of my beloved readers/followers who I appreciate for continuing for reading my blogs, I would like to know if theirs anything you would like for me to talk about or even improve on to make this better for you guys. I can handle all kinds of criticism so give me your best shot!  🙂

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!

Love Stage

Source: myanimelist.net

The manga ‘ Love Stage’ was recently turned into an actual anime show which I enjoyed very much. The manga was written by Eiki Eiki and was illustrated by Taishi Zao. The story goes about a boy named Izumi who all his life wanted to become a manga artist. The only problem being is that his family does not approve of his choice for his future because he pretty much sucks at drawing anything remotely good. But, he’s deluded himself into thinking that his work is awesome looking. Also, to make things worse he has an obsession with Lala-Lulu who is a female heroine in one of his favorite anime shows.

Izumi belongs to a famous show biz family. His mom is a well-known actress, his father owns a talent agency company and his older brother, Shogo, is the lead singer for a popular band. So, you would think that he would just follow in his families footsteps and go the same route, right? Nope. One of his main reasons for not joining his family in the spotlight is because he thinks he has no talent of any kind that he can show off and that he’s terrible around crowds. Still, that doesn’t stop his family members especially, Rei, the family manager from trying to get into the family business.

One day, a golden opportunity comes knocking for Izumi when a famous celebrity named Ryoma comes to his family with an offer that they can’t refuse. The only problem for Izumi is that Ryoma thinks that he’s a girl from a long time ago and has fallen in love with him. (Poor Izumi)

This story is totally hilarious and heart warming at the same time. I’ve both read and watched it and it is totally awesome no matter how I read the story. Now, if your against gay love or seeing some man on man action, then this probably isn’t for you. For those that are cool with it, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. My eyes were pretty much glued to the screen and before I knew it, I had gone through all of the episodes. Don’ think its going to get a season 2 but if it did I hope it’s just as hilarious as the first one. Also, to let all you guys know the show is pretty much the same as the manga, so it won’t really matter which way you guys prefer to see this wonderful story unfold.

Thinking pretty hard about it, but I’m going to have to give it a 4/5. The characters were hilarious and so were the situations to they were put through. During all of this, you watch as a young boy face his fears and learns how much everyone around him cares about him and his future. Enjoy!
