The Ghost’s Wife

Twitter.comAlright everyone I have another comic/manga for you today. This one is called,” The Ghost Wife” by Saejung. Personally, I think it should be re-titled to, “The Ghost’s Wife” because it makes more sense, but that’s just me.

This revolves around a girl named Liz Kim who is an ordinary high school girl enjoying her everyday life (You know the usual) until she looks out the window one night to see a strange boy eating cats near her house. The boy notices her and stealthily makes his way inside her room. At this point you can tell he isn’t human, but when Liz comes face to face with him; he only says two things to her before she passes out.

Should I eat you or make you my wife?

Since then the ghost has been constantly following her around; protecting her from other evil spirits in the area. As the story progresses, you realize how powerful he really is. He can be seen or become invisible to anyone he chooses except Liz, he can go through other spirits like tissue paper and he can hypnotize anyone into believing whatever it is he wants you to believe. So, he was an unusually powerful.

He made himself so comfortable invading her personal life on a daily basis that everyone around her has started calling him, Damon. As if it was the most normal thing in the world, if that wasn’t enough problems for this poor girl to handle another powerful ghost appears and claims that other stronger ghosts are going to be coming after her, too. Now her current ghost problem becomes her protector instead.

 

The only thing that I don’t get is how Liz went from not being able to see any spirits for so long to seeing all of them all of a sudden. I can’t blame Damon for all of it because he was even surprised when she saw him even though he barely shows his emotions most of the time. So, what sparked the supernatural foresight? This series is still ongoing, so maybe they’ll reveal that fact later on in the story.

I was really hesitate to get into this story because it was ongoing and the art style didn’t really catch my eye at first, but once I got into the story I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next. My only question now is how is their new-found relationship is going to work? He’s still a ghosts after all? Is he planning on killing in the end so that they can be together forever? If you want to see the answer to these questions then your going to have to read yourself. Enjoy yourselves, everyone.

Angel of Death

NextEpisode.comSince its October let’s talk about some horror, shall we?

The anime, Angel of Death, is still kind of ongoing, but I’ll get into that later. It’s about a girl named, “Rachel”, who finds herself in a very strange situation. All she remembers in the beginning of the story is that something happened to her parents, then she went to her first counseling session. Soon after, she wakes up in a strange building where she finds out very quickly that she has been named a ‘sacrifice’ in that strange place and that people are out to kill her for some reason.

Her first encounter with Zack wasn’t a very good one because he was the first person to try to kill her in this show with a scythe. You can tell immediately that Zack hasn’t gotten all his lightbulbs screwed back into his head yet, but he doesn’t seem to mind it. After a couple of near close calls, she makes a deal with Zack that if she successfully help him escape this building then he’ll kill her. Weird, right?

But, I think Rachel has her reasons for agreeing to this.

As you watch the show it starts to feel like your watching a video game and after doing some digging, I wasn’t really surprised to find out that it was a video game before it was turned into an anime. The video game was launched to the world in 2015 in August and was created by Makoto Sanada.

Anyway, as time goes by and they tread deeper and deeper into the insanity of the mystery building more of Zack’s and Rachel’s pasts are revealed in the process. But, there are some questions that haven’t been answered yet. Why is Rachel there? Is she dead or alive? Is she in some kind of purgatory if she is dead? What did she do to deserve being sent to that place? The anime only shows you 12 of the 16 episodes the rest of the episodes you have to search the internet for.

If anyone know where to watch all 16 episodes I would greatly appreciate it if you put it in the comments, so we can all enjoy the ending.

You can play the video game and see if you can beat it to see the plot twist of an ending or if your neither a gamer or a watcher then you can enjoy reading the manga, too. There are so many mysteries to this show and so many unique characters that these two have to go through. For the episodes that I was able to watch, I found it quite enjoyable and I hope you do, too.

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.

Anatolia Story

Welcome back everyone! I hope you all are enjoying this lovely spring weather that we’re having.

Today’s manga is another classic type of manga that I’ve realized that I’ve read a long time ago, but nnneevvvverrr talked about it for some reason on my blog. I bet I’m going to suddenly remember a ton of manga/anime that I forgot o mention after this, but it’s all good.

Anatolia Story or betterFastMangu.com known as Red River was made by Chie Shinohara and is a total of 28 volumes and is completed, so you all don’t have to worry about cliff hangers and waiting months to years waiting for what happens next. It’s about an average high school girl named Yuri who suddenly gets dragged through a random puddle by a lot of outstretched hands to find herself reappearing not only in hundreds of years in the past, but in a total different country to boost. She goes from Japan to reappearing in Hattusa which is the capital of the Hittite Empire in Anatolia.

This girl then meets the Crown Prince of the Hittite Empire,” Prince Kail”, who protects her from the queen after learning of her situation. Basically, the queen brought Yuri to their time and place because she wants to kill her and use her blood for a curse that will kill all of the remaining princes, so that her son can take the throne and rule the empire. Don’t get it twisted though, this is the queen’s idea not the son’s.

HubPagesThis story is full of romance, murder, drama and conspiracy theories, but their were a lot of touching and romantic moments, too. The story will totally blow you away and you end up loving all the interesting characters that show up in this story (except the queen of course). Besides, Prince Kail my other favorite character would have to be, Ramses, who is a Egyptian general striving to become the next Pharaoh. This guy is not only a handsome devil, but is super smart and a total womanizer and to top it has a thing for Yuri!

(sniff sniff) Do I smell a love triangle? I think I do.

mangarock.comI have read and re-read this series over and over during the last couple of years even though I already know what’s going to happen. So, I can tell you its a really good story if your into romance, murder, conspiracy theories, love triangles, action and history. This manga has a little something for everyone. Also, I want to say that you should only read this series if you are of the mature nature because there is a lot nudity and suggestive clothing in this manga. If you are though, then enjoy to your heart’s content.

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.

Darwin’s Game

Egmont Manga.comThis time I’ll be talking about a manga called, “Darwin’s Game” by Flipflops…….yes, the creators really call themselves Flipflops. Deal with it.

Moving on, just from looking at the title alone my initial thought about this series was that it was going to be about some kind of game having to do with extinction and evolution  of some kind. Turns out I was kind of right, but in a different sense. In the beginning, the story just jumps right in with a murder. The main character’s friend who has been missing for the last couple of days gets killed by someone wearing a panda loving baseball mascot outfit. But, right before Kyoda gets killed he sends an SOS link to Sudo Kaname in order for him to get help. Well, we all know how that turns out.

Of course, when Kaname gets the link he clicks on it just because he’s super curious and not knowing how much this will change his life forever. Darwin’s Game is a social networking game, so when you enter or activate the game all you would be doing is be transported to somewhere else in reality or for your opponent vice versa. The moment you sign up for the game a snake comes out of your screen and bites you on the neck which activates a power within you to help fight against other players.

While reading it I noticed some people get really cool powers and some get really shitty ones. I guess it really depends on the person. For our guy, Kaname gets an unknown power that the game itself hasn’t seen in a while and of course it takes him a while to figure out what that power is. His power is summoning anything he’s at least seen once to himself which is quite handy. Also, to everyone in the game it became quite obvious that not only was he powerful, but became quite the prodigy when it came to playing. Kaname’s goal is to beat the game which he himself doesn’t even know what that means, but its better than the alternative method to getting out of the game.

Death.

This series is still ongoing, so please have some patience or if you don’t have any then just wait for the series to be complete then you can read it. So far its really good and it actually reminded me of a similar series called “Alive-The Final Evolution”. It was kind of similar in the way of powers and fighting to the death and all that, but without the technology and yes, the Alive manga is complete. So, you can go ahead and read this one if you haven’t already while the other finishes up.

If you like action, cute girls, powers and conspiracy then you should put this on your read next list. I don’t recommend this for people who don’t like violence and light gore, but seriously though what manga doesn’t have violence in it nowadays? Hope you enjoy the manga.

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!

 

 

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!

 

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!

Psychic Detective Yakumo

Source: http://www.alquimistacu.blogspot.com

This dark and mysterious anime was created by Manabu Kaminaga. This show mostly centers itself around Yakumo and his new (even if he never says it) friend, Haruka. Haruka was a client in the beginning, but gained a crush for the good-looking teen detective and decided to help him on his investigations. We all know why she’s really there. She’s hoping to get close enough to him to see if they could be more than friends/co-workers.

 

From watching it, she might have a shot since they seem to be getting closer and closer, but I wouldn’t hold my breath. There is a reason why he’s single and has to do with his abilities and his cold shoulder towards living human beings. That’s right, folks! Yakumo’s secret ability is being able to see the dead with his cursed red-eye.

Personally, I love his red-eye I think its cool looking, but in this story his eye is scary to others. So much that people used to shun him as a child, sad I know. Later in the years, he decides to use his ability for profit and becomes a detective. People think he’s psychic though because he’s always right, but in reality he’s getting help from the dead. They usually call on him for cold or unusual cases that can’t be explained.

I really liked watching this anime especially when they decided to add the romance factor into it. Yakumo may never say it or show it, but I think he’s really grateful for the people who hang around him, even though, he’s grumpy all the time. Except for his dad, he can go away and no one would miss him. In this entire story, he tries to make Yakumo’s life a living hell and for the longest time, I couldn’t understand why. Why would you do these things to your own son? Maybe to prove a point?

If you haven’t watched it yet, just know that everything does become clear in the end. Except knowing if Yakumo and Haruka are going to end up together. That one is left to your imagination. I end up liking and not liking Haruka…..why? Because of how she acts in this show. I’m not saying she was a girly girl or anything like that, but I felt like she joined the team just because Yakumo’s hot and mysterious. But, there are times that she acts like a true friend and is there to support him in his time of need.

I don’t how you guys feel, but that’s how I feel about her. Anyway, this is also a manga which is equally as good and if you like dark stuff, mystery and seeing dead people then this is for you. I hope you all love it as much as I did.

Thanks for Reading!
