Kakuriyo: Hotel for Spirits

Blubberblabber.comAlright, today I’ll be going into an anime show called,” Kakuriyo”. It revolves around a girl named, Aoi, who was pretty much an ordinary girl other than the fact that she could see Ayakashi (aka other worldly beings) all her life. Things take a strange turn in her daily life after her grandfather died. Soon after his funeral, she gets a visit from Ōdanna, a handsome Ogre demon who spirits her away to the Hidden Realm so she can become his bride.

Totally confused about her new situation, she demands an explanation. Turns out her good old grandfather, Shiro, left a huge debt behind to Ōdanna and his hotel and never paid it back before he died. Knowing he couldn’t pay back the amount in time, he made a deal with Ōdanna saying that in exchange for his huge debt, he could take his granddaughter, Aoi, as his wife instead. Messed up, isn’t it?

Shiro

Even if this encounter was inevitable, Shiro could have at least warned her about the agreement so she could be mentally prepared when it happened. I know some of you out there would probably say ,’she would have run away’ or something like that, but let’s face it. Their Ayakashi from another realm, I’m pretty sure that no matter where she went in the world they were going to find her and bring her back kicking and screaming. Moving on, Aoi really didn’t want to get married to him for obvious reasons even though he was good-looking, kind-hearted and seemed to be wealthy enough to take good care of her for the rest of her life. So, she offered to pay the debt off by working for him in his hotel, the Tenjin’ya.

After the deal was made he became a bit of a dick to her and was super sure that she would come running back to him the moment, she realized that wouldn’t be able pay it all off fast enough. What he didn’t expect to happen was for her to find her place in the hotel and make her own eatery.

As time passes for her in the hotel, she meets all kind of new people, spirits and Ōdanna and Aoi get closer and closer. The show is still ongoing so I’m going to assume that they fall in love with each other and still get married in the end, but who knows maybe their will be a whole different ending to this. I do like this anime and I kind of feel like they got this idea from Spirited Away which is a very good movie by the way. There is a bit of mystery going on in the show and a lot of comedy, so if your into those kinds of genres then I would look into this anime quickly.

Thanks for Reading!

Pochi Kuro: The Demon Realm of Gluttony

MyAnimeList.netHappy New Year everyone! Let’s have a great start to the new year.

For today’s manga, I’ll be talking about,”Pochi Kuro” that was written and illustrated by Naoya Matsumoto. In this one, our story revolves around a pair of thuggish demons named Kuro and the cat demon Reo who dream like all other demons that they could one day eat human meat. Apparently, humans are very rare in appearing in the demon world and if by some chance of fate that they did appear only the nobles and royal family have the privilege of eating them.

That’s why for common demons like Kuro and Reo can only dream about them until one day from a stroke they find a human girl unconscious in the river. Of course, they wanted to eat her but it didn’t take long for Kuro to get attached to her and name her, Pochi.

Eventually, Kuro fell in love with Pochi and promised to take her back to the human. Sadly, one of the reasons that humans appear very rarely in the demon world is that there is only way from someone to go in and out between worlds and its only in one area that is protected in a powerful shield of magic that can destroy any demon just from touching it. But, since Pochi is immune to magic because she’s human they think that place is her best bet.

MangaReader.netThis series is still ongoing, but it’s really funny and filled with demons fighting it out to get to Pochi. It turns out that their might be a love triangle going on between Kuro, Prince Ishizu and Pochi. I can’t wait to find out if she stays or goes in the end, but so far the only mysteries in this manga are how did she get into the demon world in the first place? Why is Kuro so powerful for a low common demon? I think Kuro is going to be an important person later and it turns out he’s royalty too somehow. We have so many devilishly handsome princes making an appearance in this story that I wouldn’t be surprised if he was one, too.

I can’t wait for the new chapters to come out and reveal what thrilling adventures they will go through next and I hope you will, too. If demons, comedy and action are your forte then give this manga a try and see how you like it.

Gantz:O

akibastation.esGood morning everyone!

Today I’ll be talking about a movie called,” Gantz:O” which is an animation movie made by Yasushi Kawamura and Digital Frontier. It was based on the Gantz manga series and yes, I will admit that I didn’t read the manga so I won’t be making comparisons between the two.

Anyway, the story is that the world sometimes gets plagued with monsters and mysterious people in black suits come out of nowhere and kill them before they do any major damage. Where the monsters come from and why is still a big mystery in this movie. All we know is that there just there.

Now, the main character in this story is Masaru Kato, who was just going about his business until he decided to play the hero when he tried to save someone from a knife attack in the subway. Unfortunately, he gets killed in the process and the next thing he knows he’s in a white room with five other people. Most of them knew what was going and explained to him that he has been chosen to play the Gantz game. In this game you have to defeat the boss within the time limit or your erased from existence. This game is based on points the tougher the monster you killed the more points you get and if you get 100 points then the Gantz computer will offer you three options.

  1. Upgrade your weapons and equipment.
  2. Resurrect a dead player.
  3. Erase you memories and quit the game.

For most people in this movie they wanted to get out as fast as possible and tried really hard to get the 100 points. But, there were others that enjoyed killing and doing anything they want, so they didn’t really care about the quitting the game. They didn’t even care if they lost a limb or another team member died. How does Gantz decide who plays the game after they die? We may never know.

animeclick.itIf I had favorite characters for this it would be the bad ass, Kei Kurono, who died in the beginning of the movie protecting his friend, Reika, who was a famous pop star when she was alive and Anzu Yamasaki who was this hyper teenage girl who followed the Kato around even though she was on the Osaka team. I liked her carefree nature and hyper energy.

This movie is action packed and if you’ve read the manga already then you know what I’m talking about. This will make you believe that even in the darkest of times a good show of humanity will be there showing people that not all is lost. If your curious about Gantz and mysteries behind it then I’m sure all questions will be answered in the manga and if their not then it will truly be a mystery.

This is something that you can get into real fast. If the killing monster action doesn’t catch your eye then the lovely ladies and the sci-fi themed world will. Enjoy!

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!

Ao No Exorcist Crew

Source: http://www.cosplaydeal.com

Last time, I didn’t get to talk a lot about the characters in the anime Ao No Exorcist, except for the twins and the father. So, I’ll talk about them now. I start with the sweetest and gentlest character, Shiemi.

Shiemi is the daughter of a herb shop owner and this is where Yukio and probably other exorcists come for supplies. Shiemi decides to attend True Cross Academy after an incident with a demon that lived in her garden that almost killed her. This girl is extremely shy and doesn’t have any friends because she used to spend all of her time tending to her garden and because of this some people like to take advantage of her kind nature.

I thought that it was good that Yukio and Rin because she would have been in some serious trouble. Speaking of the twins, I can’t really tell if she’s in love with Yukio or Rin or both of them but we’ll see as time goes on.

Next is Ryuji who is also a student at True Cross Academy. Now his personality kind of shocked me because when you first look at him, he looks like another thug uses intimidation to get what he wants. Actually, not only is he rich but amazingly smart which flip most people out especially Rin. Those two become rivals and end up hating each other’s guts, but I think they’ll end becoming the best of friends in the end.

Izumo is another student at the Academy. You can already tell that this girl has some issues to work out. First of all, this is a know it all and other than Noriko Paku, she has no other friends. Izumo is a really prideful person and loves to be the center of attention when she can get it. Apparently, she has a talent for taming other demons because apparently its a really rare trait to have. So, when Sheimi turns out to have the same talent as Izumo and has a more likeable personality than her, she makes it her mission to make Shiemi miserable.

Like I said before about people taking advantage of her kind nature, Izumo uses this to make Shiemi do whatever she wants and says that she’s supposed to if they want to be friends. Since, Shiemi has no experience in the friendship department, she blindly believes this. I felt so sorry for her during that time and I also wanted to know what was Izumo’s problem.

Nemu would have to be the laziest and weirdest student in the whole class. He never does anything and most of the time, he’s either playing video games or is talking to his hand puppet. You never know what this guy is thinking and I hope he does something awesome before the season ends.

Shura ends up becoming another wild twist in this awesome anime. First of all, in the beginning all he did was playing video games and ignore everybody. He wouldn’t talk to nobody. Secondly, it at turns out that not only can Shura kick ass, but is actually a she! And a hot she, at that! Shura was an inspector ordered to watch Rin to see if he was a threat or not to their cause. Later, she becomes one of the new teachers to teach the class. I really like her, she’s got a lot of spunk and likes giving off that tough girl attitude. For some reason, she likes wearing a bra and shorts all the time, no matter the weather and has a sword magically come out of her chest.

The person last person I think I’m going to talk today is Director Mephisto Pheles. This guy is a total mystery. This guy was one of my favorite characters, he was so funny and he kind of reminds me of a clown or a magician by how he dresses. The moment I saw him I knew he was a demon. The fangs, ears and the way he can transform himself kind of gave it away. Their are a lot of questions surrounding him like why is he helping the humans? What’s in it for him? Are Mephisto and Rin related somehow? If you want any of these questions to be revealed your going to have to watch the show.
