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.

Corpse Party: School Edition

Blu-ray.comThe Corpse Party anime series and previous games are becoming increasingly more popular as time goes by. It’s so popular that I can’t see this series dying any time soon. So, without further ado, I would like to talk about one the most recent game in the series, ” Corpse Party: School Edition”.

If I had to give this game a nickname it would the “Filler Edition”, the reason being that it’s the same exact game as the first Corpse Party, but only this time they explain the missing holes that the first one left this time. Things like what happened to Kishinuma after he got knocked out by zombie teacher. How did he not die? How did he escape? And so on and so forth.

These types of things got on my damn nerves because the first game wouldn’t even hint at what could have happened. It was they were saying,” Well, they made it out alive and that’s all that matters. Don’t sweat the details!” No! I will sweat the details because I don’t know about you guys, but not knowing certain details or all the details when it comes to the storyline is a bit of a pet peeve of mine. So, when they finally brought out a game that will reveal all those mysteries, I was super happy about it.

Pinterest.comThe gameplay and graphics are pretty much the same as the first (besides the fillers), so if you’ve already played the first one and don’t mind playing it again then you have the advantage because you know almost everything that happens in the game. If you’re not in this fortunate position and are about to play Corpse Party for the first time, then you’re in for a ride. But, if you’re not into horror/RPGs then this might not be for you. I enjoyed watching the mysteries unfold and I thought it was totally worth playing this game all over again. I hope you all feel the same after playing the school edition.

Little Nightmares

cracked-games.orgThis time around I’m going to be talking about the popular and recently out game called, “Little Nightmares”. The game was developed by Tarsier Studios in which I appreciate your guys hard work in making this game for us. I was interested in this game the moment the demo came it, so I was really happy when I heard that this game finally came out.

So, the story of the game itself is really up to your imagination, but I’m going to tell you guys what I think was happening in the game. You wake up as this little girl wearing a yellow raincoat. Yes, I say she because it feels like it’s a she. So, I say it’s a SHE!!! Their has been a debate what gender the little person is and I vote she because she a she vibe from the get go.

dualshockers.comAnyway, this is a stealth/puzzle game where you have to sneak past these gross, deformed fat people who want to kidnap you for some odd reason. I’m good at stealth, puzzles not so much. It takes a person like me a minute to figure some stuff out, not going to lie to you. While your venturing on what you finally figure out is a ship, you come to realize that the reason all this fat people keep trying capture is so they can eat you because you’re a delicacy in this world. So freaking delicious that they’ve got (I thought this was a daycare for the employees kids or something, at first. Okay, leave me alone.) a whole smuggling ring operation going on where they take kids, feed them and fatten them up until their ready to put in the oven.

Messed up, isn’t it?

I know the theme of this game is dark and creepy, but they made something so damn dark that you couldn’t even see where some stuff was nor where you were going despite having a lighter. You never see the faces of the children nor the main character’s. Even though, the game was meant to be creepy it also had a lot of funny and charming elements to it, too. I always laughed when the chefs would see me and make that funny elephant sound.

At one point in the game, it kind of felt like you entered Spirited Away for a moment because everything takes a Japanese style turn and the head mistress of the ship is a geisha with a white mask. If you look closely at some of their faces, some of them look like Japanese demon masks. I thought it was cool but kind of out of place with the rest of the game art style and if you’ve played the game then you’ll understand what I mean. Also, I’m very curious at what type of creature she is because I thought she was just a regular child surrounded by giant adults that want to eat her, but then whenever she gets hungry bad things start to happen to the point where you question if she’s actually good or not.

gamerevolution.comI would say she’s kinds like a vampire but kind off not. I’m not really sure but at the end she becomes totally badass and gets her revenge on all those people who tried to eat her throughout the entire game which I thought was awesome. In my mind, she may be a being that can suck the life out of you and steal powers, but she still gave those people what they deserved so good for her!

I really loved this game, its creepy charm and how dark the story becomes as time goes along. The controls are really simple, so even a beginner can play this game as long as they don’t mind the horror element. Really excited to see if another similar game is coming out anytime soon and I hope you enjoy Little Nightmares.

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.

Danganronpa Legacy Continues

A long time ago, I talked about the game Danganronpa and the second game, as well. Well, this time, I’ll talk about the third game, too. Also, I’ve been hearing that an exciting fourth game is going to come out sometime soon in January of next year. I’m really excited to see what they end up brining to the table this time around considering what happened last time in the second game.

 

In case some of you didn’t know or remember what happened in the last game. The last surviving students of the killing game, eventually, discover that their in a virtual world and the mastermind, Junko Enoshima, is trying to download her mind into their bodies so she can control the world in different bodies. Together we end up destroying her once and for all and get released from the virtual world.

It was a very nice ending and all, I really enjoyed the second game but those two games left behind a lot of questions that needed answering and luckily for us the game’s developers decided give us some answers with the game Danganronpa: Ultra Despair Girls. I really liked this game because it was different from the last two game because this one was an adventure/shooter game. Also, it not only shows how the chraracters from the previous game are doing but it fills a lot of holes that were left behind by the two last games. So, that was pretty good.

Ultra Despair Girls was happening after the first killing game in the first game was over. One of questions left behind in the game was…..what happened to Makoto’s family? Not going to reveal what happened to all of them but his sister Komaru is the main character in this game as she tries to survive the city filled with killer robots and homicidal children. This shooter game is a real nice change of pace with a story just as good as the other ones.

Moving on from that, we have the upcoming release of a fourth game. When I heard this I was wondering what was going to happen since the mastermind is dead and her successor went away. But, once I saw the cover I already had a guess what was going to happen, you see the little girl a little more grown up on the cover, so it looks like she’s going to return to wreak havoc and have one last showdown. I’m telling you guys I’m so excited about this game and you already know that I’m going to one of the first people to buy this game the moment I find out that its out.
