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.

Gantz:O

akibastation.esGood morning everyone!

Today I’ll be talking about a movie called,” Gantz:O” which is an animation movie made by Yasushi Kawamura and Digital Frontier. It was based on the Gantz manga series and yes, I will admit that I didn’t read the manga so I won’t be making comparisons between the two.

Anyway, the story is that the world sometimes gets plagued with monsters and mysterious people in black suits come out of nowhere and kill them before they do any major damage. Where the monsters come from and why is still a big mystery in this movie. All we know is that there just there.

Now, the main character in this story is Masaru Kato, who was just going about his business until he decided to play the hero when he tried to save someone from a knife attack in the subway. Unfortunately, he gets killed in the process and the next thing he knows he’s in a white room with five other people. Most of them knew what was going and explained to him that he has been chosen to play the Gantz game. In this game you have to defeat the boss within the time limit or your erased from existence. This game is based on points the tougher the monster you killed the more points you get and if you get 100 points then the Gantz computer will offer you three options.

  1. Upgrade your weapons and equipment.
  2. Resurrect a dead player.
  3. Erase you memories and quit the game.

For most people in this movie they wanted to get out as fast as possible and tried really hard to get the 100 points. But, there were others that enjoyed killing and doing anything they want, so they didn’t really care about the quitting the game. They didn’t even care if they lost a limb or another team member died. How does Gantz decide who plays the game after they die? We may never know.

animeclick.itIf I had favorite characters for this it would be the bad ass, Kei Kurono, who died in the beginning of the movie protecting his friend, Reika, who was a famous pop star when she was alive and Anzu Yamasaki who was this hyper teenage girl who followed the Kato around even though she was on the Osaka team. I liked her carefree nature and hyper energy.

This movie is action packed and if you’ve read the manga already then you know what I’m talking about. This will make you believe that even in the darkest of times a good show of humanity will be there showing people that not all is lost. If your curious about Gantz and mysteries behind it then I’m sure all questions will be answered in the manga and if their not then it will truly be a mystery.

This is something that you can get into real fast. If the killing monster action doesn’t catch your eye then the lovely ladies and the sci-fi themed world will. Enjoy!

Tanya the Evil

www.anime-now.comHi guys!

Today, I’m going to be talking about this awesome anime called, “Tanya the Evil” by Carlo Zen and Shinobu Shinotsuki. I heard about this anime through a friend of mine who knows I have dark and twisted preferences when it comes to anime and video games.  So, when I was told about this show, I knew I had to watch it and sure enough it did not disappoint me one bit.

It’s about a cruel and very logical businessman in the modern world who gets killed and when he does he has a conversation with God who he later calls ,”Being X”, about why he doesn’t believe in him. After their conversation, Being X decides to reincarnate him as a little girl named, “Tanya”, and into another world and tells him that if he doesn’t believe in him by the time he dies in his next life he will never be reincarnated again.

Let me tell you guys that Tanya is the most vicious little girl that I’ve ever seen and she’s super cute, too. Her cuteness puts everyone that she meets off guard until she does something crazy and dangerous. I think Erich is scared of her the most out of everybody, if he knew her story I don’t think he would surprised at this point. I think he’s expecting her to grow horns or something. Tanya’s job is a military mage who fights for the empire ,apparently, she becomes so good at her job that she quickly gets promoted to major ends up forming her own battalion.

Anime-Planet.comBeing X does everything in his power to mess with Tanya and when I say mess I mean kill horribly as fast as possible. Every time he decides to show up he stops time and posses something to talk through which is most of the time a person or a doll. Being X better hope that Tanya never finds a way to hurt him or he’ll be in big trouble, but I really doubt that he will anytime soon.

Anyway, I really like this anime for many reasons and one of them is obviously the characters, mainly Tanya’s evil self. The dark atmosphere of the entire show and the battle scenes. This show really needs a season 2 really, really badly. I hope one comes out real soon. If you like dark type anime, supernatural stuff and battle scenes then you really need to watch this.

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!

 

 

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!

Conception 2: Children of the 7 Stars

pushsquare.comThe game Conception 2 is for the Nintendo 3DS and it mostly centers around a boy who you can whoever but I chose to leave the name as it was, so we’ll say his name is Wake. Twenty years ago, dark circles appeared out of nowhere all around the world. Eventually, they were called Dusk Circles and the monsters that crawled out of them and terrorized the people were called The Dusk.

I solution was quickly gathered when the Star God that they worship chose certain people to acquire special powers to fight off these monsters. These people are called Disciples and they would know that they were chosen by the Star God when a brand would suddenly appear on their body. Then, they get shipped off to the Academy where they get trained and educated.

When Wake gets their though and takes the exam to find out which rank he’s supposed to be in, he’s in for a surprise. I won’t spoil it for you, but it wasn’t what I was thought it was going to be. Usually, when I’m playing a game I can pretty much guess what’s going to happen next, but looks like I was a little off on this one.

Back to the game, other than fighting monsters with their special powers and sealing away Dusk Circles, they have another job. That’s to create as many Star Children as possible. Now, this is where this RPG game starts to feel like your playing a sim dating game. Apparently, you have to woo all this girls in order for you and her to participate and complete the ‘ritual‘ as they call it.

They try to sugar coat what you’re looking at during the ritual, but we all know what this is and I find it quite funny how the characters explain it like it’s not what it looks like. But, then his friend, Chlotz, says that he’s jealous of him because Wake has the excuse to say that its his duty to help make as many Star Children as possible.

Star Children to me are like those little fairies that like to follow you around everywhere, except these are actually helpful in a fight. Also, they are absolutely adorable and what kind of child you can end up with is almost random……almost.

The only thing that’s in your control is a type of child you want. You want to be a swordsman, magician, grappler, etc.

The story is actually pretty good. I couldn’t put it down and I can’t wait to see what will happen next in the game and what will happen in the end.

Psycho Pass

source: www. zerochan.net

Psycho Pass is set in the time of 2113. Of course, since this is placed in the future we’re obviously going to see a lot of futuristic things which for in my case I was extremely jealous of. The main character, Akane, who is a new inspector for the Public Safety Bureau Criminal investigation shows off a lot of her gadgets in the first couple of episodes.

I wish I had a computer butler who could change the entire interior of my house to anything I wished or change my clothes with a touch of a button anywhere I went. The utter convenience you see in this show is staggering.

Anyway, this show starts out with Akane on her first job as an inspector. My first impression of her was that she had a very mellow look to her and that she didn’t look like she belong doing police work. Turns out, I was right but I will not tell why or how I knew that I was right. You need to watch it to figure it out.

As an inspector her job was pretty much simple. To make sure the Enforcers did their jobs correctly. Enforcers are very disturbed people in which the higher ups use to help them go after criminals. Now this is where things get interesting.

The police in this anime kind of work the same way as they do in present time except with all the awesome gadgets. The other things is that each person is equipped with a special gun that can tell the difference between an innocent civilian and  cold hearted killer. Also, what I found that was really awesome about these guns is that if someone had the insane urge to try to kill an innocent person the gun’s safety would turn on, if not innocent and the person turned violent the gun would transform into what I like to call Lethal mode.

The Enforcers are all unique characters but some reason Kagari, who is one of the Enforcers kind of reminds me Karou from Ouran High School Host Club. He loves to tease and joke around Akane. When they first met he tried to flirt with her, but I think he’s a bit bipolar from how he can just flip the script on you really fast.

This anime show and characters are quite interesting and I recommend that people give it a shot.

Martin Mystery

This older cartoon called “Martin Mystery”  which revolves around three people who work for “The Center.” The Center is a secret organization that investigates paranormal activities all around the world. The three agents that they send are Martin, Diana and Java.

Martin is a normal teenage boy who loves to flirt with pretty girls but mostly ends up making himself look like a fool in front of them. Also, he seems to be the main character and leader of the group much to Diana’s dismay. Diana is Martin’s step-sister who is smart and seems to be the common sense in the group and loves telling Martin how stupid he could be sometimes.

In the beginning of the show it doesn’t really make it clear that what their relationship was. Almost, immediately, I felt a love connection between the two so I thought at first that they could be two people who haven’t yet become a couple. So, I was really surprised to find out that they were actually siblings. Turns out though that in the comic they were lovers but decided to change it so they would end up siblings instead.

Anyway, the team’s last member is Java, the cave man. I don’t just say that he’s a cave man just because he looks like one, its because he actually is one. They found his body in an iceberg and made him an addition to the group. Now he serves as Martin and Diana’s friend and the team’s muscle.

When ‘The Center’ calls them for an assignment, Martin uses his high tech watch to find a portal in the school that takes them to The Center. Sometimes, the portals end up in the most ridiculous of places and I kind of wonder how no one hasn’t gotten suspicious.

As I watched the show, I thought that Men in Black had a lot of influence in it. Aliens and other creatures worked in the organization, they got cool gadgets and no one knew what they did. This show is filled with aliens, ghosts, zombies and other paranormal beings that you can think of and also filled with romance, comedy and friendship. It is really enjoyable to watch.

Generator Rex

Watching “Generator Rex” brought a lot of old fond memories back. This show surrounds a teenage boy named Rex who has the power to grow and control machines to defeat EVOs. EVOs are humans that get turned into evil looking monsters because of an incident that happened 5 years ago. Five years ago, a group of scientists wanted to help humanity combat injuries and diseases by creating little machines called “Nanites”. Which I think was a good idea if the rich people funding the project didn’t mess up completely. They caused a huge explosion that not only taking out a lot of people, but the Nanites that they created spread across the globe and infected every living thing.

The Nanites end up mutating the eco system and the very people themselves turning them into monsters. What’s worse is that their seems to no cure for the never ending plague…….until now. Rex is the only person with the power to fight and cure EVOs. Their was a lot of mystery around Rex. He didn’t know his last name, where he came from, if he had any family or why he has these powers in the first place. But, don’t worry as you watch you’ll find they will give us hints and flashbacks to help us with finding the answers. The mystery thickens when Van Kleiss, Rex’s arch nemesis, appears. He appears to know more about Rex and who he is than anyone else it seems, but it doesn’t look like he’ll be revealing anything to us anytime soon.

If I had to choose my favorite episodes from this series, it would be “Night Falls” and the Ben/Generator Rex crossover. I liked the “Night Falls “episode they created werewolf type EVO that I liked plus another showdown between Rex and Hunter Cain. I also liked when they put Ben 10 into the mix for two episodes and mess with Rex a little. I don’t think Rex could process what Ben knew and what he could do all that well, but they proved to be a good team. I hope they get to work together again before the season ends.

Generator Rex is really funny to watch. I love watching Rex and his partner Bobo fight EVOs and pull pranks on everyone that they meet. The show will keep you entertained as we try to figure out Rex’s past and what it has to do with him now.

Yobi, The Five Tailed Fox

This animation movie is about a young girl named Yobi. Well, no one knows how old she really is because she’s actually a fox that possesses magical powers. What she likes doing the most is turning herself into a ten year old girl.

For some reason, an alien race of furry aliens crash land on Earth and have been trying since then to go back to their planet. They are so weird and one of them likes repeating what the other one says. Then, one day one of them that’s considered a ‘troublemaker’ within the group gets yelled at forcing him to leave, which then leads to him getting himself captured by the kids at a nearby school. The school seems to be a school for the oddballs or outcasts of society. It did hint that some of these kids have some issues that need to be resolved.

The rest of the aliens feeling bad for him want to try to rescue him, so they ask Yobi to infiltrate the school and get their friend back. That is where the story begins. This movie absolutely cute and heart warming. You know that Yobi wants to be human, but she’s kind hearted enough to not take extreme or evil measures to get it. Unlike Mr.Shadow, who I had thought was a good guy at first when I saw him helping her get away from the hunter several times.

My favorite characters would have to be Yobi, Jung Jong-ee and Geum-ee. Jong-ee was this cute little girl who didn’t speak and for some strange reason, she always had to be hugging something. First, it was her oversized teddy bear and then she turned her attention to the alien. Geum-ee was this nice guy who wanted to be a comedian and liked spending time with Yobi. I liked watching the puppy love develop between the two, even though, Yobi had no clue that she was in love in the first place.

This movie is filled with adventure, mystery, magic and a glimpse of the supernatural world. I loved this movie and I can’t wait to see more. I really think that watching Yobi, The Five Tailed Fox is a total must see!
