Fire Force

Fire-ForceWiki.fandom.comI’m going to talk about this cool anime called ,”Fire Force, which was produced by David Production. It came out quite recently and the main reason  I wanted to see it was because it was an anime centered around fire fighters which I think I should have seen coming besides the title being a dead give away. Anime as a whole has managed to make anything look cool and exciting and they have pretty much gone after almost every job/sport known to man. But, this is the first anime show that’s based off of firefighters that I know of.

Anyway, this show is mainly centered around, Shinra, who is widely known in the Academy has the crazed “Devil” because of his fire ability that comes out of his feet combined with the fact that he has a tendency to make a crazed smile in the wrong kind of situations. Basically, his classmates thought he was a dangerous nut job. He still passed the academy training with flying colors and was sent off to his first unit in the Fire Force.

TheOtakuAuthor.comNow, the Fire Force has two main jobs and they are to kill the ‘infernals’ which are creatures born from human beings that seem to combust into flames for unknown reasons then lose control of themselves and go on a rampage. Their second job is to find the cause of the reason why people are turning into infernals and put a stop to it.

For them fighting infernals is hard enough, but with hints of a conspiracy happening within the Fire Force and one of them being that one of the other companies might know the secret to the sudden human combustion, it makes Shinra and the others wonder. If another company knows the reason behind it, then why haven’t they put a stop to it? Also, are the other terrorist characters that have been causing havoc lately being employed by said company? If so, why?

pinterest.comThere are many more mysteries happening in this anime and I bet their is more to come soon, since this is a ongoing series. But, if you prefer to read it then you’ll be happy to know that its a manga, too. So, if you can’t wait to see the end then I would go for the manga. I can’t wait to see what happens next in the show and see what is the cause behind the birth of the infernals and why they exist in the first place.

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime

nimecode.comAh, my first post for the new year, even though it’s almost February……oh well. Sorry that’s its taken me so long to make another post but here it is!

This anime show is called,” That time I got reincarnated as a Slime”, by Fuse. Other than the title; a quick clip of the show on YouTube I found at random had me searching quickly for the full episodes of the anime. The story begins with a normal human man named, Satoru, who is also 37-year-old virgin but loves his normal everyday life. That all changes one day when one get together turns deadly by him getting stabbed and dying.

As he dies a voice which is later called,’ The Great Sage’, talks to him and offers him a new life and asks what he would like. Satoru thinks that he’s going delusional in his final moments so he starts requesting the first things that come to mind without knowing the consequences. Next thing he knows, he’s waking up in a dark cave in a slime’s body and his epic adventure begins.

Satoru’s Human Death

You can pretty much guess why the Great Sage chose that body for him. Not only was he reincarnated into another world, but it had to find a body that suited all of his requests that he made while dying. He didn’t want to feel pain, hot or cold, have predator instincts (even though that’s not what he meant at the time), etc. So, if you think about it becoming a slime makes a lot of sense. Even though he complains a lot at first about his body, he gets used to it pretty fast.

Then he meets the Storm Dragon Veldora who explains that he’s been sealed in the cave for hundreds of years and if he still sealed for another hundred years or two he will die. What he did to get imprisoned is kind of bad but the way he tells it is funny as hell. Also, Veldora turns out to be a very nice dragon probably because he’s super lonely for being stuck in that cave for so long. Satoru feels bad for him so he makes him a deal, he’ll go out into the world to find a way to unseal him in exchange for being his friend. Veldora agrees and Satoru ends up using one of his skills to eat the dragon and the cage, so Veldora can tag along.

So in short Satoru’s main quest is to release Veldora from his prison before he dies. But, he gets into a lot of funny and serious situations along the way that makes you cry in laughter. Next thing you know Satoru ends up becoming one of the biggest badasses in that world without realizing it. But, there is one thing that still remains a mystery that he’s kind of shrugged off in the show…..who is the Great Sage? Why was he reincarnated into that world in the first place?

According to the anime, people come from different worlds to visit his world sometimes but they are summoned not reincarnated. No only is Satoru’s situation unique and rare but powerful, too. It takes about thirty mages to summon one person to his world, but from what I’ve seen in the show only one big powerful person or entity was strong enough to pull him into that world and make him a new body to boot. So, it begs the questions of why this person or being did that in the first place.

There are a lot of questions to be answered in this anime and if you want to find out the answers I suggest you watch it or read it for yourself. Their are a lot of action, hilarious moments and hot people in this show, so I’m sure you’ll find something that will catch your eye. Hope you enjoy this awesome anime like I did.

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.

Ni No Kuni 2

G2A.comAlright everyone, this time I’m going to be talking about a game called,” Ni No Kuni 2″. This game was developed by Level-5  and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment. I know that this is the second game in the series, but I’m only going to be talking about this one.

Its revolves around our two main characters Evan and Roland. Roland is the president in our modern world that gets teleported to another world after a disaster happens in his world and he almost dies. When he first appears he encounters, Evan, a human-cat hybrid that is next in line for the throne in the Ding Dong Dell kingdom. Trouble comes barreling their way when they realize that their being invaded and have to escape the palace before it too late.

After escaping the palace, Roland vows to stay in this world with Evan and help him build a new nation, where everyone can be happy. This is already a challenge in itself, but things get even more difficult when they meet Doloran who was a king to a forgotten nation over two thousand years ago. When they discover his plan to rip away other rulers kingsbonds from them in order to help him summon the Horned One, they realize that their racing against the clock.
PlaystationLifestyle.comFor those of you who don’t know a kingsbond is a bond that connects the ruler to not only their subjects, but their Kingmaker. A Kingmaker is pretty much like a god that acts like a guardian to the ruler; having a Kingmaker tells everyone around them that they are worthy enough to rule. That’s one of reasons why Evan can’t go strolling back to his Kingdom whenever he feels like it. Even if he were to take down the traitor Mausinger and all of his lackeys, he still wouldn’t be able to sit on the throne because he hasn’t gotten his Kingmaker yet.

He was supposed to get it during the crowning ceremony the same day that he met Roland and well……you can tell how well that played out for him.

Reddit.comSo, Evan goes to the Kings Cradle to get his own Kingmaker where he then meets Lofty. A squishy, yellow and spiked little thing, they were really disappointed and for good reason. Everyone else’s Kingmaker looks awesome and badass while his looks pathetic and weak looking.

Continuing on their journey they meet a lot of different characters along the way. Their all unique in their own way and bring something new to the table. I love all the problems and adventures they get into to if your into adventure or open world games. This game is also very generous when it comes to collecting items. Items are everywhere in the game, you can’t miss them.

What they make easy in collecting items and treasures they make harder when it comes to fighting monsters. You have to constantly be fighting to get a high enough level to beat any mini or big boss. Granted you don’t have to get the recommended level to beat the boss, but it’ll make the fight a lot easier on you if you did. You know the rule when you play against rpg bosses? Have 99 potions in stock so you can stay alive the entire time.

Sadly that rule does not apply in Ni No Kuni 2. They have it where no matter how potions/hi-potions or in this case soreaways you have in stock if you go into battle your only allowed to use ten of them. Sucks right? This makes fighting bosses a lot harder than it already is. Don’t worry it’s still very possible to kick boss ass even with this restriction.

I wouldn’t recommend this game to first time RPG players only because its different from the normal ones and could be a lot harder in some areas. I really loved the graphics in this game; it made me feel like I was playing inside a movie created by Hizo Miyazaki and Ghibli Studio. I hope that another game like this is already in woodwork for the future. This game was very enjoyable and fun to look at, I hope you all like it as much as I did playing it.

A Girl’s Story From Far Away

PinterestI’m back ladies and gentlemen! I’ll be honest and say I didn’t realize how long ago since I’ve made an appearance on my blog until just recently and I apologize for that. I got distracted with a lot of things going on in the world of reality and I guess I didn’t realize how much time passed. Anyway, let’s move on to better things.

This time I’m going with what I would call a ‘classic’ since I read this manga a llloonnnggg time ago and couldn’t believe that I never talked about it. This one is called  ‘Kanata Kara‘ or also known as ‘From Far Away’ which was made Kyoko Hikawa. It’s about a normal high school girl named,” Noriko”, who suddenly gets thrown into another world which was predicted by the seers of that new world that she would appear as the Awakening. The Awakening is supposed to be a being that will awaken the Sky Demon onto the world which will wreak havoc upon the world into an era of eternal darkness.

Basically, Noriko is going to help start the freaking apocalypse!!!

What the seers in this world didn’t foresee is the Awakening and the Sky Demon to end up looking like two normal people. Noriko is pretty much normal for the most part of this story, but Izark the handsome warrior aka Sky Demon was pretty much super human. He had a lot of different abilities going on, but he was super scared to use them or go deeper in strengthening his powers sometimes because since birth he was told that he would become the Sky Demon and destroy the world. So, in turn would never try to  use too much of his powers. But, since Izark is pretty much unbeatable he never had to push himself that far anyway…….until Keimos came into his life.

Keimos is another handsome devil warrior in this story and is obsessed with being the strongest warrior around. He’ll fight anybody that wants to and make an example of them to prove his point to his enemies. So, when Izark came in and kicked his ass; you could say that Keimos was a little miffed at finally being beaten down.

Keimos ended up being the first of many problems for the two because everyone in the world is looking for those two but don’t know where to look. You would think that would work to their advantage, but these two have the worst luck when it comes to running into trouble. Their main problem ends up being a man named,”Rachef” and for good reason. He ends up brining a world of hurt to the pair and I’m going to say how because your going to have to read it to believe it.

MangaRock.comThis is a very heart warming manga that you will cherish forever if your into the romance/fantasy type of mangas. Its filled with romance, mysterious creatures, dragons and magic that you won’t be able to get enough of. So, if your into this these types of manga then I would suggest you give it a read. The only thing that got me was the ending because I kind of felt like the creator of the manga didn’t know how to properly end the series.  As if they weren’t sure if they wanted it to keep going or not, but it’s still a pretty good ending anyway and I really enjoyed the story.

Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright?

I picked up this game mostly because I’ve been playing a lot of Ace Attorney games recently plus I’ve been really curious about what Professor Layton games are all about, even though, I’ve never played any of those. Basically, I was killing two birds with one stone. This Nintendo game was developed by Level 5 and Capcom and the storyline behind it is really interesting. Its about two different people getting sucked into a fantasy world called Labyrinthia.

In this game, the two work together to solve the magical world’s mysteries and hidden secrets. This is where I kind of got confused because the title of the game obviously says Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright, right? So, how come their working together on this instead of being bitter rivals? I have two ideas of why they chose this title. Its because during the entire game we switch out between the main characters stories during a certain parts of the game, so it kind of felt like they were competing to see which character the player liked playing the most. Also, at the end the two are finally duking it out in the last trial (sorry if I spoiled that for anyone) which is they named the game this way.

Personally, I liked playing as Phoenix Wright the most and I’ve learned through this game that I’m not much of a puzzle solver. Sure, I solved a couple of them with no help but most of them I had to use a lot of hint coins to solve them. Hint coins are just what their called; if you find a coin in the game then you can use it to help you solve a puzzle. The only problem with this is that when you activate the coins the hint is something that you already figured out which frustrated me to no end. I liked using them during trials though when I felt like I’ve done everything possible to figure out the contradiction. Also, I liked all the anime cut scenes that they put into it. Who doesn’t enjoy a good anime cut scene?

During this whole game, I though the cat named Eve was totally evil. The whole time I thought the cat was special and way too smart for its own good. In the end I was right and wrong and I’m not going to tell you how or why, your going to have to go play it for yourself to why I say so. If your a lover of puzzles or solving crazy trials, then you’ll love this game and its wacky characters. It’ll definitely challenge your brain a bit.

Gakuen Alice

This cute little manga is called Gakuen Alice and was created by Higuchi Tachibana. In this story, people who are considered geniuses all over the world get sent to this elite school for the gifted. The students who are admitted are treated like national treasures by the government. The only catch is that they are forbidden from contacting anyone from the outside, nor can they ever leave.

One day, Mikan’s friend, Hotaru gets accepted into the school and she’s never seen again. Mikan who so desperately wanted to see her friend again runs away from home to the school where her friend was at. Now everyone says that its impossible to get into the school, but luck would have it that she runs into one of the teachers and takes a shine to her.

Also, that same day she meets Natsume. A cool looking boy who wears a black cat mask and has control over fire. When these two met, she saw him blow up a wall with his fire power in order to escape. Ever since, that day these two have been at each other’s throats because he so mean to her for no reason and she doesn’t understand why.

Mikan gets accepted into the school after they tell her that she also has a power or what they call an ‘Alice’ that has the power to nullify any other person’s power. Turns out that the school wasn’t made for geniuses like everyone thinks, its actually a school for people who have powers. The main focus of this school is to find them and help them hone their powers so they can use them to help society. Turns out that Mikan’s friend has a technology power, which she can use to make anything that she wants.

Later, we discover that Natsume is considered a problem child because he tries to escape the school constantly. As punishment he has to wear the black cat mask which cancels out the wearers powers. But, he so powerful that he can still use them with it on, so what I want to know is why they even bother putting the mask on him in the first place?

Natsume is considered the bad boy in this manga and he only has one friend and that’s Luca who has the power to bond and control animals. He looks as bad as Natsume until you put him around animals and then he turns into a whole different person.

Anyway, Mikan has it tough at this school and I wonder what she’ll do next. For some reason, I think Natsume and Mikan we’ll become friends later………way later in the story by what I can tell. This is a really cute manga and I recommend it to all that like these type of stories.

Dungeon Ni Deai O Motomeru No Wa Machigatte Iru Darou Ka

The title of this manga is a mouthful, but the story and idea surrounding it is pretty awesome. Unlike Sword Art Online or .Hack//Sign this manga describes a world where people live their lives like an RPG game. What I mean by that is that these people are born in this world where they have to fight monsters to get money, have their stats tattooed on their back and can form parties which they call ‘familia’ here. 

They can even buy potions and armor to help boost up their status and health which also made me wonder what would happen when they die. I haven’t seen anyone die yet in this manga, but it makes me wonder do people just die like anybody else or do they disintegrate like the monsters? If they do, do they get another chance at life?

In this interesting world, it centers around a open minded boy named Bell who wants to be an elite adventurer. But, when he firsts starts out things do go as planned. First of all, he makes a contract with a goddess named Hestia who wears the same ripped dress and doesn’t have not one worshiper except Bell. So, she hopes that through Bell she can gain more followers and eventually become well known all over the world. Secondly, Bell likes to get ahead of himself and tries to fight in dungeons that he knows he isn’t ready for which lead to the meeting of the famous sword princess, Aizu.

In the beginning, Bell finds himself going to deep into the dungeons and comes across a monster that almost killed him, but Aizu ended up saving him in the end. It was like love at fist bloody battle for him, after that he fell in love with her and he got even more fired up to become a famous adventurer and hopes to one day be able to fight along side her.

Oomori Fujino and Kunieda really did a good job on this manga so far and I look forward to see what happens next.

The Ancient Magus Bride

I usually don’t like talking about brand new mangas because they only have a couple of available, but for this one I’ll make an exception. The new manga called The Ancient Magus Bride a.k.a Mahou Tsukai No Yome was created by a brand new artist named Yamazaki Kore. I give my props to the creator of this manga, it totally sucked me into the story and before I knew it, I was at the end and am now patiently waiting for the next chapter to come out.

This manga is about a girl named Chise who suddenly ends up in an auction to be sold to a bunch of rich people. Her  suddenly being auctioned off in the beginning of the story isn’t what caught my eye it was the fact that not only was she being sold in a world where magical creatures and other beings exist, but she was bought by a very mysterious person. Now, because this is a romance manga I bet most of you are thinking she was sold to a beautiful, mysterious person or something like that, right?

If you are then, you are DEAD WRONG!

Apparently, she’s sold to a very powerful sorcerer that everyone hates for some strange reason and not only that his head is an animal skull. No, its not a mask or a disguise spell or anything like that. That’s his real face! Besides, the fact that he as a animal skull for a head, the fact that he tries to cover it up with a small veil is very funny to me. It’s not like it’s really hiding anything. The moment you see him using the veil you can already tell that his face is disfigured in some way, so why hide it when you live in a world where creatures just like him exist?

Now let’s go back to Chise. She’s a red headed 16 year old girl who is suddenly bought by this strange sorcerer, but she seems to be really cool with it. In fact, her only main concerns were what he wanted her to do for him. You would think she would try to run or at least resist a little, but that’s not the case with her. You’ll find out later, she had a pretty good reason to act the way she acting, but like always I won’t spoil it for you.

After, reading the first chapter I didn’t know if I should be happy, sad or scared for Chise. To make things really interesting in story, not only does she get bought from an auction by an animal headed sorcerer, it turns out that he bought her for two reasons. First, to make her his apprentice. Secondly, to make her his future wife.

That really caught me off guard especially the way he proposed the idea to her. This manga is quite awesome and actually reminded me of a another manga that I’ve read a long time ago, but that can wait for another time. People are always saying, ‘Don’t judge a book by its cover’ or ‘Don’t let another person’s looks fool you’ in this story Chise is going to have to see if she can love a man where the person inside might be exactly the same as his cover.

My Hometown Story

Hometown Story that is for the Nintendo 3DS is a very simple game. This game is in the same family as Harvest Moon. If you don’t know what that is it’s a farming/sim game.

In this game, you choose the gender and name of your character of your character and then your story begins. It begins with your grandmother’s death and now there is no one to operate her once popular story. Her furry flying, talking pet would have done it but she lacks opposable thumbs which an requirement to operating the shop.

Everything about the game is simple. The graphics, the controls for the game and the characters. Some of things that I’ve come to hate about this game is the camera. You know how usually when you play a game you can use your controls to move it any way that you want. Well, you can’t do that in this game. Also, no matter how much profit you end up making for the day, everybody in town will take it away so you’ve got something to sell tomorrow.

Also, their are items that you can buy but you can’t sell. If your wondering that I can just give it to someone your wrong. If a person doesn’t come right up to me and says that they want a particular item from me, it just stays in my storage. So, what is the point of buying these certain items? Well, the answer is quite simple ladies and gentlemen.

Absolutely nothing.

This game is so simple that it’ll wrack at your nerves. I think maybe this type of game would only be entertaining to people who are complete beginners in the gaming world.
