Sisterly Love of Citrus

This time I’ll be talking about Citrus which was a manga originally by Saburouta. Later, made into an anime show by Seven Seas Entertainment. I will say that the manga did interest me, but I never got the time to get into it which is why I’m so glad they made an anime show version of it.

It’s about two girls that are total opposites of each other made to be step-sisters after their parents marry each other and not only that have to share a room. Yuzu is the perky, girly type of girl who likes wearing make up, jewelry and being social with others. She’s not afraid to speak her mind either which is why she sticks out like a sore thumb at her new school after she and her mom moved, so they could all live together. Mei, on the other hand, is the strict, bookworm type that follows the rules and makes sure everyone is doing their part. She is the student council president and the chairman’s granddaughter and you can tell just from looking at her that she doesn’t even know what the definition of fun is.

Now here’s the kicker, not long after they meet they both realize that they have feelings for each other. I think Mei already knew about her sexual preferences because she was the one who started this train of hotness. Also, when Mei was engaged to one of the teachers in the school, she didn’t look like she was enjoying any of his ‘affections’ towards her, but liked Yuzu almost instantly.

A lot of different things get between their forbidden love as they struggle to be a gay couple. This is still an ongoing series, so I don’t know how things are going to turn out for them yet. I think some people in this show might get shocked because some people like the parents don’t know about the relationship, but I think Mei’s grandfather had a little inkling of what she wanted especially after the whole teacher fiasco (for those of you who watched it know what I’m talking about).

This anime is nothing short of hot, suggestive and sweet. It’s interesting to see these two girls struggle in being in a relationship and help each other with their personal issues. This anime is very open about gay love, so I wouldn’t recommend this for you people out there that are homophobic in any way shape or form. But, for those other people though, I hope you enjoy this series as much as I did even though their aren’t many episodes out yet for our enjoyment. We can only wait and see what happens next.

World of Final Fantasy XV

TheNerdMag.comFor today, I’m going to be talking about Final Fantasy XV which is the first rpg game in the final fantasy series that is an open world. If you don’t know what open world is then it’s basically when the game itself let’s explore the world itself and see other things besides the main storyline that the game provides. This is a very new element to the final fantasy series because they’ve never did it before and if would have to guess I would say that they were racking their brains on how they could make final fantasy even more awesome than it already is. Their solution: open world.

This was developed and published by Square Enix and we thank you for making this game. It is about a young prince named Noctis who sets out on a journey with his three best friends and bodyguards (Ignis, Prompto and Gladiolus) to meet his bride and childhood friend, Luna. The two of them were supposed to get married in order to restore peace between Lucis and the Imperial kingdom. Soon, after the group leaves the kingdom the Imperials set a trap and end up not only capturing Noctis’s kingdom, but kill the king, as well.

atomix.vgNow with no way back home without dying Noctis and the others continue their search to find Luna and go through the trials with the gods in order to receive their blessing and bring peace back to the land.

This game was trying to pull my heart strings so many times in this game especially the ending. It was so heartfelt and beautiful that it almost brought tears to my eyes. I said almost! But, the game was good nevertheless and I can’t wait to make another one like this and I don’t mean the online ones that their making nowadays, but ones like this where there is a main story and all that good stuff.

My favorite characters would have to be Gladiolus and Ardyn. Gladiolus I liked for very obvious reasons and I liked how he was always that focused and strong character, sometimes, he could be a real hard ass but he had to be for Noctis’s sake. I learned from watching them that each of Noctis friends represents what quality he needs to be a good king. Ardyn, on the other hand, who is the bad guy in this story was my other favorite and I liked him because he was a funny but mysterious villain. For the longest time in the game I couldn’t decide if he was on our side or not, but I’m going to tell you now that he’s not. He was also so casual with killing people, sabotaging plans and destroying the planet that I couldn’t help strangely liking him.

TheFantasyGamer.comAlso, for the DLCs there are some separate episodes for Noctis’s friends and their adventures when they weren’t with Noctis in the main story. You learn a lot about these characters through them. There is an Ardyn DLC that will be coming soon sometime this year in 2018 and I’m super excited about that because I really want to know about Ardyn’s past and how he became the way he is in the story.

The only things I would have to comment on is the teleporting and the loading screens. The loading screens were very bi-polar where it would take 10 seconds one time then take a whole five minutes the next and was very annoying to me. Also, the teleporting function, don’t get me wrong it was very useful for those long journeys across the land to complete missions, but I didn’t understand the game’s logic on what I could and couldn’t teleport to. For example, it wouldn’t let me teleport to a place that would take forever by car, but would let me teleport to one pretty much down the street which made no sense to me. Other than that this was a very good game and worth playing.

If you’ve played it already then you already know how good this game is, but if you haven’t and your into RPGs then give this game a try, you won’t regret it. Can’t wait for the next one to come out!

Emoji Movie: Good or Bad?

JoBlo.comWelcome back everyone!

Today I’ll be talking about the Emoji movie that cam out recently. It was made by Sony Pictures Animation. It revolves around one particular smartphone and an emoji named Gene who can’t seem to figure out what face he permanently wants to be. He’s supposed to be a meh emoji like his parents, but for some reason he’s super emotional unlike the other emojis.

All his life he wants to prove that he can do his job and be like everyone else. As you all know though, he messes that up so bad that the director of emoji company (is what I’m going to call it),Smiley, had to put some very drastic measures into effect. So, to prove to everyone that he can fix this whole mess he goes outside of the app and ventures into the other apps on the smartphone with his new friend, Hi-five in search of a hacker called Jailbreak.

Usually, I look at Rotten Tomatoes before I decide to watch a movie or not, but ended up doing the opposite.After watching it and looking at the site, I was surprised that the critics gave it a 9% and the general audience gave it a 40%. For the critics they complained that it was advertising and the advertising wasn’t that good anyway. My question to that is what exactly is this movie advertising?

I would agree with their comments if their was an app in the movie I never saw before, but their wasn’t. The whole point of advertising is to sell or suggest a product or a service to the customer that they don’t already have.

Do phones come with emojis? Yes.

Does most of the world have Spotify, Pandora or something similar on their phones or has at least heard of it? Yes.

Have you heard or played Dance Dance Revolution or something similar? Yes.

Then what exactly is this movie advertising?

For me I guess I don’t get what the issue is when the critics were concerned. The general pubic though I can make a good guess why I got that score. I think the public is tired of the same general story plot line that we’ve watched throughout the years when it comes to animation movies.

moviesroom.plWhile I was watching the movie, I could already predict what was going to happen next and sure enough it happened to the point where I got bored. When movies become predictable like that the audience loses interest and I think that’s what happened here. Think about the reasons why animation movies like Frozen and Moana did so well.

It’s because they completed changed the usual animation Disney-like plot line that we are used to seeing in the past. Plus, they were both beautifully well done. I bet at first when they saw what kind of movie this was going to be everyone was excited because it was a ‘our generation’ type movie. Though after watching it they were probably  very disappointed at the final result because they thought it wasn’t how they thought it was going to be. If the creators of the Emoji movie would have put in one UNPREDICTABLE TWIST in the story, then I think the ratings would have gotten a bit higher than what they are right now.

So, I take it back I can see why they general audience gave this a 40% on the site. Moving on, my favorite characters were Gene’s parents and Jailbreak. His parents because they were meh all the time, but kept saying they were having a different emotion on the inside which I thought was funny. Also, I like Jailbreak’s personality who just wants to live life the way she wants and stop being forced to be girly because that’s what everyone wants her to be. If she was a human she would be that typical teen that was hiding a double life behind her parents back.

Overall this movie wasn’t that bad, but definitely needed some work. It was still enjoyable to watch and pass the time. Also, I like to wish you all a happy thanksgiving and I hope are all enjoying stuffing your faces as you spend time with your friends and family.

Is Fire Emblem: Echoes a tough game?

Nintendo UK.comThis is a game I never got around to playing until now. It was developed by Intelligent Systems and was made a while ago before I got my hands on it. The story revolves around two people Alm and Celica who were pretty much attached the hip when they were kids. But, after an attempted attack from a vicious knight named Slayde who tried to kidnap Celica after recognizing her as the lost princess of the country. Having being separated for years, they obviously take different paths in order to bring peace back into the world.

Warning: Possible spoilers ahead

Alm becomes a warrior and a leader to the rebellion force that calls itself the “Deliverance”. The rebellion’s goal is to take out King Rudolf who rules the opposing country that’s trying to take over theirs.  They all hope that Alm can take out King Rudolf before things get too bad. On the other hand, Celica has become a warrior priestess who believes that using violence is wrong (even though she’s taking out people left and right herself) and that there is a peaceful solution to this crisis.

Her solution is to find Mila who is the goddess of their country that is supposed to be keeping their country, at least, nice and peaceful. Find her and ask her why is she letting everything go to shit lately? I think it’s painfully clear that something must have happened to her if she’s in charge of making sure nothing happens to the humans in her domain.

Fire Emblem GodsWhile I’m talking about Gods and such might, as well talk about Duma and Mila. Duma and Mila ancient gods that happen to be siblings, too. When it came time to rule over the humans they both disagreed about how they should be ruled. Duma thought that only the strong should be in control have all the wealth and power and rule over the weak. While Mila thought that everyone should be equal and share the wealth and prosperity. Since, they couldn’t agree they decided to split the world in half so each god had a place to rule and made a contract with each other that forbid the other from ever interfering with their side of the world.

Doing so would mean total war.

Personally, I understand their ruling styles, but the same time I see the flaws in it. Duma believes that as long as there is a strong leader then the weaker people will be led to prosperity. What actually happens is strong people becoming evil, angry and only thinking about themselves while the weaker people become poor and treated like dirt. During Mila’s rule, she’s the complete opposite of Duma, believing that as long as everyone is equal and share everything things will be just dandy. Problem with is the people became spoiled, weak and even when people were starving to death because they were too nice and gave away everything they had. So, its same to say that if they combined their ways then the world would end up just right.

Now would I consider Fire Emblem Echoes a hard game? It’s a bit of a challenge I will say that. Is it an impossible game to beat? No, but I do wish I could have lowered the difficulty a little bit because for one if one of your players dies they are permanently dead until you find a revival well (which doesn’t even allow you to revive all your characters). These wells are a bit hard to find, so you better be sure that you’ve searched every nook and cranny when you’re in a dungeon or could have missed it without knowing it.

Smashboards.com

Also, I didn’t even know about the revival wells until I did some digging in the internet about what to do about bringing dead players back into the game. It wasn’t even in the tutorial which I  don’t even know why. I would like to think that would have been a nice little detail to tell the gamer playing this freaking game. Also, one other thing that you figure out, eventually, is that you need to talk to everyone just in case they want to join your group. For me, I like to have as many people in battle as I can, but it sucks when most of them have died and I haven’t gotten to a well yet.

BehindTheVoiceActors.comI’m loving some of these characters though. One of my favorites is Gray who is that strong, confident and funny type that says things that just make you fall in love with him right away. Another favorite is Faye (even if I’m a little concerned about her) she’s another childhood friend of Alm and has been in love with him for as long as she can remember and that love as not only grown, but is bordering total obsession. During the talks they have during some of the battles, you can tell that she would do anything for Alm and makes it painfully clear that she’s into him, but he doesn’t seem to be taking the hint. It kind of makes you feel sorry for her.

The storyline is really good and the characters are really interesting. I’ve had several theories about Alm’s identity throughout playing this game, but I’m not going to tell you who he really is. But, if there is one thing we do know it’s that Alm and Celica do not end up together. No matter how much we want them to, they don’t. That’s not really a spoiler if you’ve watched the beginning cutscenes. I’ve enjoyed playing this game and if you like RPG/adventure games then you will, too.

Bonjour Sweet Love Patisserie

Pinterest.comHi everyone!

Did you think that I was going to disappear again for a bit? Well, if you did….your wrong. I’m still here and I plan to keep talking about the things I love with all of you for a long time.

Moving on, the next anime for today is a sweet show called, ” Bonjour Sweet Love Patisserie” made by Silver Link and Connect. Now, the first thing I thought when I looked at the title was too things and that is its going to in France and there are going to be a lot of sweets involved. Turns out, I was half right!

Sweets of all kinds are being shown throughout each episode (much to my satisfaction) and this show takes place in Japan not France. But, there is a cute and energetic dessert making teacher from France that shows up in the show often. He turns out to be my favorite character in the show because he’s so simple minded, hyper and cute as hell! So, if you think about I was right about the French thing and sweets.

In the show, it revolves around a sweet and shy girl names Sayuri Haruno who won a scholarship to an elite confectionery school where most of the students are from high society. Knowing that little bit kind of reminded me of Haruhi in Ouran Host Club where she was also a scholarship student in an elite school. So, when I thought  along those lines I kind of assumed the comedy was going to be similar. The show was funny, but in a different sense than what you would see in Ouran Host Club. Anyway, she’s a scholarship student trying to become best pastry chef around like her father before.

I think Sayuri’s parents might be dead. The reason being that you never actually see them; you only see them in the family photo twice in the entire show with both of their faces glared out by the sun. Also, she never mentions them or talks about them and the subject never comes up in the show, so I don’t know for sure if their really dead or not. It might reveal that in the manga because the show ain’t giving nada and you know why?

IT’S BECAUSE EACH EPISODE IS EXACTLY 5 MINUTES LONG!!!

You heard me right, each episode is only five minutes and I can’t think of a reason why it would be. As you all can probably guess it didn’t take me long to go through all 24 episodes. For me, who expects an anime episode to at least last 20 to 30 minutes this was a bit of weird change to me. Everytime I thought something else would happen the credits would pop up, so I felt the episodes were incomplete.

Nevertheless, it was still I good short no matter how ridiculously short the episodes were. If you want to know more details than the anime gives you than feel more than free to read the manga or even play the mobile game from which the anime originated from. It’s a cute little story with several good looking guys making sweets that made my mouth water. If we had the technology, I would have stuck my hand in the tv and grabbed all the sweets they made.

If you’re looking for an adorable show to kill the time and are in love with sweets like I am (and the guys of course!) then I think you should try watching this show.

Thanks for Watching

 

 

(C) Control

sevac.studiojab.comThis anime is called, “C-Control” and it gets pretty crazy pretty quick like most anime shows. It revolves around a college student named Kimimaro Yoga who is like everyone else in the world just trying to get by in life when it comes to the bills. Even though, he works two jobs he still flat broke almost all the time until a strange man by the name of Masakaki appeared at his front door one day.

Basically, he offered the chance for him to make big money in no time flat which we all know is sketchy at best. But, Masakaki didn’t really give him much of a choice when he put a whole bunch of money in his bank account and Kimimaro had no choice but to use it. The moment he did, it was game over.

avvesione.wordpress.comNow, that he’s used the money, he has no choice now, but to join the Financial District and play the game. The Financial District isn’t a place, but a whole different world that other people like him go to in order to play, gamble and earn more money. Their are only three ways to earn money in the district. You can gamble it, you can get a loan from the bank (which no one does because you have to pay it all back in one go at some point) or win a deal. Deals are mandatory battles between people who fight with their assets.

Everyone gets an asset and each one takes a different form. For Kimimaro, his asset took the shape of a young long-horned girl named Mashu. Anyway, when you fight you fight with power and money. You buy abilities with your current budget and every time you take a hit, you lose money, too. The fight is on a timer so if you end up losing a lot more than your opponent by the timer is up you claim bankruptcy. In that world, that is the last thing you want to happen because the Financial District takes your future as collateral. Meaning whatever good stuff you had going for you in reality the “bank” will alter reality to take it away.

kawaii-mobile.comFrom what I watched the scale kind of goes like this: if you don’t have much or you just started in the district and you lose the alteration in reality might not be that bad compared to a person who has a large fortune and claims bankruptcy. The only people who can see or tell a change has happened reality are the people that go to the Financial District, but normal people can’t tell that something has changed, even when a store that you might have just walked out of goes from being a doughnut shop to a sushi restaurant.

Crazy, right?

Warning: Spoiler Ahead!

Well, it gets worse. Later, in the show you come to realize that the financial district has had a hand in erasing tons of people even countries. The district can alter reality to make people think a certain person never existed, so it’s not too far-fetched that they can make countries disappear. Turns out that if a certain countries Financial District goes broke then an alter reality storm breaks free called,”C”, breaks free from that world into reality to take out that entire country.

To make matters even worse because C took out an entire country all the money and stocks end up effecting other countries that try to make their financial district’s go broke, so guess what happens next……..? That’s right folks C starts moving around trying to take out other countries!

This money hungry anime is totally epic and I totally recommend it for any anime lover out there to go watch it. It really makes you think about your money and your future to the point where you become self-conscious of it. Now there is one thing I have to ask though before I wrap this up for you guys. What do you think is better? Having all the money in the world, but no future or having a future and be flat broke?

The Nonary Game: 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors

Loom Knits.comHello! Hope you guys are enjoying this lovely morning like I am.

Recently, played this game called the “999 Nonary game” created by Chunsoft. I don’t know if I ever talked about the previous games in the series, but there are similar games to this one that came out in the past, but I’m going to just stick with talking with this for now.

This one starts out just like the previous ones where the main character which in this case is a guy names, ” Junpei”, wakes up confused and locked in a place that they’ve never seen before with eight other people. The only thing that they can remember is that they were kidnapped by a guy wearing a gas mask. The mysterious kidnapper announces to them that they are going to play the “Nonary Game” where you solve puzzles in different rooms to try to find a way out of where your being kept.

Zeroescape.wikia.comSince, it’s a nonary game where everything has to do with nine the kidnapper tells them that they only have nine hours to find their way off the ship that their on before he sinks it and they all drown. Forced to work together without knowing anything about each other, they help each other in trying to escape. As you play the game though you realize that theirs more going on when people start dying and you realize that people are keeping some important secrets from you.

The only thing that I didn’t like about this one is that there a lot of math and science stuff that goes on trying to solve some of these puzzles. If there is anything that I really despise in this world, its math! The science and science facts that they kept throwing at me I really didn’t mind but the math puzzles sucked ass.

If you’ve never played this series before then I’ll let you all know that this has several endings. All of them are bad except for one and if you want to put in the extra work to get all the endings then go ahead but for this one it requires you redo the game over and over for to get a different ending. I’m kind of the one time gamer when it comes to things like this. But, you guys can go right ahead if you want to.

If your squeamish when it comes to blood and murder then I don’t recommend this but if your into it and solving the mysteries and solving puzzles then you’ll have a hell of time with this one. I really enjoyed the story and the different characters and how everything gets revealed in the end. The endings are always mind-blowing, I love it except the math. I hated the math parts but I still hope you guys enjoy the game.

Cubism Love

MangaHome.comThe manga ‘Cubism Love’, was created by Shibamura, Yuri and it was very lovely one to read. It’s about a girl named Noriko who gets into a car accident and the only thing that survives is her brain that they stuff inside a black box. Her doctor/savior is Dr. Shinoda is her caretaker and as time passes becomes not only her friend but love interest in his heart warming story.

The manga but is a bit short for my liking but it was still a nice read. Its one of those stories where you fall in love with whats inside instead of outside. Yes, there is a happy ending to all this if you can believe it. Even all the sci-fi technology and design babies that they end up adding to the story, it will all come together in the end. Like I said before I wish it was longer but still a nice little heartwarming story that I hope you all will enjoy, too.

Thanks for reading!

 

 

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.

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.

Thanks for Reading!
