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.

Jaryuu Tensei: Evil Dragon Journey

amash2092.wordpress.comThis time I’ll be talking about an ongoing manga called,“Jaryuu Tensei”, that was made by Seto Meguru. It’s mainly revolved a person who calls himself, Ja, who was an ordinary person until he died in an accident and was reincarnated into a dragon in a whole different world. In this world, he’s super strong with his own magical powers and the people in that world call him evil for reasons unknown and come from all over the world to fight him in order for them to get stronger.

He lives his life pretty peacefully with the cute little slimes as his servants until a group of really evil and powerful people come to find him and end up killing a good chunk of his slimes in the process. It’s at that moment that he knew he had to leave the mountain before something even worse happens to them. Also, the fact that he ate an Orc pea that transforms beasts to human like forms kind of helped his decision a little.

When he turned human I thought two things and that was he was going to lose his dragon powers and that he would never become a dragon ever again. When you go further into the story you realize that both assumptions are wrong and you become incredibly happy about these facts. Also, I’m really curious on how he remembers his past life and why. That’s a bit of a mystery that has yet to be solved in this manga, but it is still an uncompleted series so they might reveal the reason later on.

MangaOnline.comMoving on, he travels to town to see the world through a human’s eyes and ends somehow at a slave auction where he meets Ireinu, the elf princess. I’m going to assume she’s a princess or at least the tribe chief’s daughter just from what I saw in her back story and making my own theories of who she was before she was being sold as a slave. Ja ends up buying her and help heal her scarred body and heart until she becomes this cute, but unbelievable force. She is extremely loyal to Ja and for good reasons. Ireinu is my favorite character so far in the story because I like how she acts so sweet and cute until someone insults Ja and then she goes into devil mode and attacks.

Eventually, I think Ja is going to have to fight the dragon gods and transform into a real dragon. Which will reveal his true identity to his friends and soon to be friends that have yet to be revealed in this story.

Yes, I shall say once again that this is an ongoing series and it is only a manga right now. I would think for this an anime series will probably show up in the future, but don’t quote me on that. It’s really funny, action packed and full of hot people so I would call this a well-rounded manga to pass the time with. I can’t wait to see what happens next in the story and I wonder if he’s going to choose one of these lovely ladies to be his? Guess you won’t find out until you read it.

Eggnoid

Twitter.comThis one is an ongoing series called,“Eggnoid”, that was made by Archie the Redcat. Of course, that’s not the creator’s real name but that’s what they want to be called. But, I still thank you for creating this so I guess I doesn’t matter what you call yourself.

Anyway, Eggnoid is about a teenage girl named Ran who one day wakes up in her bedroom to find a giant mechanical egg in the middle of the room and it opens up to have a handsome man inside of it. She’s named the guy, Eggy, because of how he came into her life. Also, the moment he was hatched, he calls Ran his mom and he doesn’t know anything about himself. So, she decided until he gets his memories back she’ll take care of him.

I think the reason Eggy showed up to her is because she was chosen because right before he hatched a voice said to her that this person will heal her loneliness and he will become a great person for the whole world. That makes sense considering that she has only one friend, Olfie, who is also her next door neighbor. Lately, he’s been acting distant and cold to her after he got his new girlfriend (or that’s what she thought) and now they barely speak to each other unless its required.

In the story, you come to find out why Olfie is doing what he’s doing to Ran. This is another I’m doing the wrong thing for the right reasons type situation. I already knew what he’s doing is going to blow up in his face eventually and when it does, he’s going to have no one to blame but himself. I can’t wait for Eggy to get more intelligent and all, so he can start acting like Ran’s boyfriend because it looks like Olfie and Ran aren’t going to be together anytime soon.

This manga hasn’t gotten too far into the story, so if you don’t like incomplete stories or stories that just started then I wouldn’t suggest this one. But, if it doesn’t matter to you and your into romance and sci-fi type of stories then give this one a shot. Theirs a lot going on in the background of this story than what is said and done between these three and I can’t wait until they reveal the answer to us all.

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.

Stalking Jack the Ripper

kobo.comHello once again everyone.

I hope your all excited for the new year, as well. I know I haven’t talked about a book on my blog for a very long time, so I hope to change that very soon.

This one that I’m about to talk about is actually one of my Christmas gifts this year, so I was a little excited to read it. Its called,” Stalking Jack the Ripper”  by Kerri Maniscalco. It’s mainly revolved a girl named, Audrey Rose, who was from a wealthy family, but liked doing things that society at the time would not have approved her of doing. During the day she was any other rich and beautiful girl, but at night she was a scientist that helped her uncle in his experiments with the human body. Cutting up corpses became a norm for her. Once the gruesome and mysterious murders of prostitutes started showing up around town by no other than the infamous Jack the Ripper Audrey’s curiosity got the best of her and she made it her mission to find and stop the murdering madman. Along by her side was Thomas, the and charming assistant (when he wanted to be) to her uncle.

I enjoyed watching their grow as they fight and find the truth together.  On another note, I find the summary in the back of the book kind of misleading. In the back it suggests that it was a girl in love with Jack or maybe even an ex from a long time ago who knew either knew who Jack the Ripper was or was crazy and loved his work or something. If it’s just me that thought that it was going to be like that then okay.

I was totally into the mystery, the conspiracies and handsome men that made an appearance in this book. I do like Audrey’s character a lot because she never really doubts herself, she’s so sure of what she wants and will do whatever she can to get it. You have to admit it was probably really hard for her back then than it is now considering the times we live in.

Now this is just my personal opinion of the book and everyone has their own personal tastes to whatever they enjoy reading. So, for me this book is very good, but it’s not addictive good and what I mean is if I reading a book and I’m super into it and someone comes near my space for whatever reason this is what happens most of the time:

Me: (Reading)

Stranger: “Hey, can you come out-

Me:“HOW DARE YOU INTERRUPT ME WHILE I’M READING! IS IT THAT IMPORTANT?!”

Stranger: “No….but-”

Me: “ITS NOT! THEN SHUT UP AND LEAVE ME IN PEACE!!!”

Laugh all you want, but never interrupt me when I’m reading especially if it turns out to be a really good story. Also, I’ve realized that this is a series and the next one is Hunting Count Dracula which I will probably get into later since it came out earlier this year. All in all other than the misleading summary and very elegant cursive handwriting for the letters that was put in this story, it was very good and would have to give it a 3.5 out of 5.

Can’t wait to read the next one and hope you like it, too.

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!

 

Corpse Party: Blood Drive

Source: thevitalounge.net

I really love the Corpse Party series from the manga all the way to all of the video games they made. Corpse Party has been getting more and more popular over the years because of the incredible horror/mystery surrounding it. This one was made by Makoto Kedōin and developed by Team GrisGris. For those of you who don’t know what Corpse Party is about; it’s about a group of teenagers who decide to perform the Sachiko Forever Charm which is said to anyone who performs the charm will be together forever. Unfortunately, right after they perform the ritual an earthquake starts shaking the entire school and not long after they find themselves in an entirely different school filled with tortured souls and killer ghosts.

It’s a pretty cool show and I recommend anyone who likes horror or mystery to watch it. Just don’t get too attached to any of the characters…….they might not live too long.

 

The latest Corpse Party game is called Corpse Party Blood Drive and I already got freaked out by it by playing the first five minutes of it. You guys may not know it, but I tend to stay away from horror games just because I don’t like jump scares all that much. I will play them from time to time, but only if I think I can handle it. Corpse Party was the exception because I like the series so much. I thought it was going to be like the previous where there’s mostly talking and you have to move here and there to find stuff to move on.

Boy, was I way off with this one. .

The previous games is just like I said before they mostly talk and find stuff while avoiding ghosts, but it wasn’t that scary. They completely changed the game with this one though. In this game, after all the crap happened in the other ones and they finally escaped the school. It turns out that dark powers of the school were becoming so strong that they didn’t even need to drag all the way to the school after you performed the charm to torment or kill you. If you did it in the real world, your horrible death was pretty much guaranteed to happen. Also, Ayumi stupidly goes back to Heavenly Host after a strange boy tells her that the curse has expanded and she is the only one that can stop it. Again I thought it was a stupid move to go back at all. First off, you’re taking the advice of a complete stranger that seems to know all about you.(creeper alert!) Then, she decides it would be perfectly fine to right back after she just back from there by her fucking self!!! Her stupidity meter went up the freaking charts when she decided to do that.

During that part before she was about to go, I thought it would give me an option or something but that didn’t happen. So, I had to watch make her do these things while I shook my head at her and called her a selfish dumbass. Also, theirs a lot more of the adventure feature in this game and a lot more running away from ghosts, you just don’t know when their going to show up and start chasing you all over the place!

 

I’m not going to tell you how this game ends, but a lot of epic and crazy shit happens in this game. So, if you don’t mind a nice little horror game to pass the time then by all means play it and see how you like it.

Side Note: To all of my beloved readers/followers who I appreciate for continuing for reading my blogs, I would like to know if theirs anything you would like for me to talk about or even improve on to make this better for you guys. I can handle all kinds of criticism so give me your best shot!  🙂
