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.

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!  🙂

Parasyte

Everyone has bad habits here and there and for me this particular bad habit of mine sometimes gets on my last nerve because I end up getting mad at myself in the end. I don’t know if other people have a problem with this but when I’m not sure of something like a game or anime, I seem to hold off on it because I instantly think that its not my cup of tea. Later though, when I finally go fuck it and try the game or episode I get angry in the end because I find out how good it is and why I didn’t try it sooner.

That’s how I felt after watching one episode of Parasyte. After, the first episode ended I was totally hooked on it and had to see more.  This was made by Hitoshi Iwaaki who created the manga and the actual anime series was created by Madhouse. This anime revolves around a teenage boy named Shinichi who is nerdy looking, nervous and friendly towards anyone that he meets. He also has a total crush on red-headed girl named Murano who for some strange reason keeps asking him from time to time,” Are you really Shinichi Izumi?”

It kind of pissed me off every time she asked throughout the entire show. I mean, why does she keep asking that? Would it make her feel different if he said no, but she already knows its him so why does she keep freaking asking him that same stupid question? I actually got really happy when he told her to shut up after she asked that same damn question for like the hundredth time to him while he was in bad ass mode. To tell you guys the truth, I really didn’t like her all that much. Everytime I saw her I always thought that something was a little off about her but I didn’t know what. Wasn’t sure if I wanted to him to end up with Kana either but I’m getting ahead of myself.

Basically, Shinichi was living an ordinary high school life up until one day he wakes up to something digging into his arm. He stopped it from going anywhere else in his body, but the next day he summed it all up as a bad dream until his arm started to transform and talk to him, at least. His arm later named Migi explains that he was going for his brain so he could take over his body and eat humans for nourishment. Later, they keep running into their more people infected and Shinichi has decided that he will get rid of as many parasite infected humans as he can.

Shinichi goes through a lot of shit in this show and sometimes you feel so bad for him. Its never revealed where the parasites come from. They never make it clear, but I’m betting that their aliens because in the first episode they were all falling from their small pods from the sky and none of them have any idea why their even there in the first place. I wish they would have hinted more but I guess we’ll never know. I really like when Shinichi was badass looking with his hair gelled back and everything, he looked really hardcore to me even his personality changed drastically. Again if you watch it or have read it, you’ll see that he goes through a lot of crap. To me it was like his own weird, parasite version of breaking down and rebelling. Again you know what I’m talking about if you’ve seen it.

There is a lot gore and action in this anime and I love it. My only wish was that he would have stayed in badass mode, but oh well. If you like mutants, action, gore and a bit of romance meshed into one then this one is definitely for you. There is so much to like about this anime its crazy, but I know it won’t get a second season.

No point, really.

The ending is so heart warming and funny at the same time that I thought I was going to cry for a minute. This is worth watching especially for people who are fans of sci-fi and horror anime. Hope you enjoy it!

Secret Life of Pets

I bet everyone wonders what their pets do when they’re gone. Some pet parents put up cameras or let someone else babysit them but most of us like the mystery of wondering what they do when we turn our backs. This is why I liked this movie so much when it came out.

This movie was made by Illumination Entertainment and it centers around a dog named Max. He’s super attached to his owner and can’t stand it when she leaves for work or for anything else that he can’t be involved with. It was because he thought about his owner all the freaking time that he never really noticed the cute and hyper Gidget who had a serious crush on him. One day, everything changes for Max when his owner suddenly decides that he needs a playmate so she ends up adopting Duke who is a huge and hairy dog that doesn’t know his own strength. Immediately, the two hate each other but that’s mostly because Max was being so mean to him and wasn’t giving him a chance. Basically, Duke had no choice at that point but to use his size and intimidate Max into behaving…..or at least try.

After, this movie is over you kind of start to wonder if your pet has similar adventures when your gone. I sadly don’t have any pets with me right now so I don’t have to wonder but I think it would be cool to find out later that my pet did all of these things and still managed to get back inside the house in time to greet me when I get home. This movie is really sad, funny and heart warming at the same time as you watch two different types of characters get along when the odds were against them. Its one of those opposites attract type deal.

If you an animal lover, pet owner or just love watching hilarious animation movies then this movie is for you. Watching this movie will definitely make your day just a little bit brighter….that is if you can get over the sad stuff in the movie first. Hope you guys enjoy this movie and its furry characters.

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!
