The Promised Neverland

Hello to you once again!

I know its been a while since I’ve talked about a manga, but never fear its here! Today I’ll be talking about, “The Promised Neverland,” also known as ,Yakusoku no Neverland,” which was written by Kaiu Shirai and published by Viz Media. This one was a very interesting story, so it revolves around main kids named Emma, Norman and Ray who live in an orphanage thinking that their life was perfect and couldn’t wait for the day that they got adopted like all other orphans do.

They didn’t even think it was weird nor question why they wore numbers on their necks, why their strict rules placed in the mansion and one of them being they can never go past the gate in front of the mansion or why they have to take tests everyday to test their knowledge. To them this was the norm.

One dscans-daily.dreamwidth.orgay, this secret is revealed after they try to catch with Connie who just got adopted and was taken to the gate to be picked up. When they get there though they are shocked to find Connie dead; that they are grown and harvested as food for demonic creatures and that their ‘Mama’ who takes care of them is in league with them. With this shocking secret revealed they make it their mission to escape the farm before its their time to go up on the chopping block.

I find this manga so messed up on so many ways and it will mess with your heart so much. In this there are so many twists and turns in this epic adventure to survive and try to find their own true paradise. There are so many questions though……..where are the other humans? When did this all happen? Why aren’t the kids with the other humans if their are any? What are the demons? Why is it so important for the kids to be offered to them?

Spoiler Alert Incoming

There are so many questions while you read it and it as no problem sucking you in. You meet a lot of interesting characters and you hope with all your heart that they all live, but its kind of like Akame Ga Kill at first the person that’s your favorite is the one who gets killed. But, you still cross your fingers and hope that they all make it alive. Like for example, when Norman was ‘adopted’ and taken to the gate, I was like “NNOOOOO NORMAN!” Until I get to the very end of the series, I will still believe that Norman is still alive. Norman is way to smart and cunning to just give up like that. The one reason why I think he might still be alive is because when they opened the gate door for him, he looked confused as hell. As if what he was expecting wasn’t there, even though he knew he was going to die, so for me that was a hint and little light of hope that he’s still alive somewhere and that they did something else to him.

I recommend this to anyone who wants to read a good manga. Also, I don’t recommend this for the faint hearted. This is a series that will tug your heart all over the place and there are those little faint touches of gore in it as well. For the people who have read it know what I’m talking about. Hope you all enjoy this awesome series as much as I do and yes I do think this is one of those manga that deserves an anime series. Enjoy!

Life is Strange

Source: gamingbolt.com

When I first saw this game I was a little hesitant to play it to tell you the truth, but then I said to myself ‘what the heck I’ll give it try’. Looking back, I am so glad that I bought this game and brought it back home with me, so now I was mentally kicking myself because I almost didn’t buy it that day. This game was created by Dontnod Entertainment and Square Enix and it revolves around a girl named Max who goes through the strangest things during this entire game.

The game already starts out very weird and mysterious because she wakes up in the middle of a storm just in time to see her hometown about to get destroyed by a massive monster tornado. But, right after her supposed ‘vision’ of the future, she suddenly gains the power of controlling time. How does she get that power?

I really don’t know. I was wondering during this whole game how out of every character that was in here, why was she the only one that gained that power? It looks to me that it will always be a mystery and all we can do is speculate and guess why and how. I just wish they would have given us a hint of some sort during the game, so we wouldn’t be so confused now. Out of everything that was put into the game, that one story detail was the only bad thing that I could point out.

The graphics were excellent and the gameplay. This is another what I like to call movie video game but with a lot more input from the player this time than the previous ones I’ve played if you ask me. This game had a bit of the usual but added a hint of a puzzle/hidden object parts to it, too. So, we had a lot more to play with in this one.

If I had to give this game a rating then I would give it a 4.5/5. Like I’ve said before it was really good and there are many ways to play this game with multiple outcomes that just want you to go back and play it again. I’m not going to go into detail about the story for you guys, since I don’t want to spoil it for you but just know there is a lot of drama in this and it will definitely make you cry. I would recommend this game to pretty much everyone that loves a good storyline and is looking for a nice way to pass the time.

Until Dawn

 

VG247.comIf you’ve read my last post then you saw that I briefly mentioned the game ‘ Until Dawn’. This game was made by Supermassive Games and produced by Sony Computer Entertainment. Ah, Sony you got to love them. Anyway, this is a survival horror game that revolves around this group of teenagers taking a vacation in a snowy cabin. They were all enjoying themselves until they decided to be cruel and thought it would be funny to prank one of the girls, Hannah, right in front of the guy she has a crush on. Devastated, she runs into the woods in the middle of a blizzard (because that’s the perfect place to run to when you want to be alone and cry) where soon her sister, Beth, tries to follow her.

The two sister are never seen again.

GameGuides.comIn the beginning you see a hint where their could be a monster in the woods, but you’re not so sure. A year goes by and the older brother of the two sisters, Josh, invites everyone to come back on the anniversary of their deaths because he says it will help everyone get some closure. Everything goes downhill from there.

If it was me in this game, I would have never gone back to that place. I would have just gone and seen a therapist or something for a couple of weeks and just be done with it. I would never go back to the place my friends died in a creepy freaking cabin, no doubt. Plus the bodies were never found even when everyone did a complete search of the mountain. I would be way to paranoid to go to a place like that, but that’s me. I don’t know about you guys.

This is what I call a video game movie where you watch most of it and you just make a quick decision here or there. The reason I liked this game is because you never know what is going to pop out at you and scare the crap out of you. Every decision you make decides who lives and who dies and let me tell you, its kind of hard keeping everyone alive but it is possible. Also, there are different endings every time you start over and change something from before.

The characters were very diverse and if I had to pick who I liked the most and who I hated the most I would say I liked Sam the most because she kicked ass in the game and in a towel no less! You ever tried defending yourself or running in a towel without letting it fall? I haven’t, but that shit don’t easy. The person I hated the most was……a tie. Between Emily and Jessica, they were both complete bitches in the story and I can’t decide who I hated more. Anyways, this game is super easy to play, you just have to be quick with the buttons or you won’t last long. Also, this game is not for people who don’t enjoy a good scary movie. Enjoy!

Thanks for watching!

Corpse Party: Another Child

This Corpse Party I would say would be the second season of the first Corpse Party, just with different characters. In this Corpse party, the main character is a girl named Tamaki who is also a psychic.

Her school is about to be shut down and almost everybody is getting transferred to schools in the city, except for a select few like Tamaki. Tamaki doesn’t seem to have many friends, but many enemies. The leader of these bullies would have to be Erina, who picks on her because Tamaki’s boyfriend, Yuuma, doesn’t like her. That’s what I don’t get, why would you pick on the do think timid girl because she has a boyfriend that is not hot for you?

But, I did think that a little bit was Tamaki’s fault. She was so prideful that she wouldn’t tell anyone that she was being bullied. Also, if she wasn’t so shy and everything and just told Erina off then she would have backed off or it could have made it a lot worse, who knows.

I like this new Corpse Party for several reasons. First off, the mystery behind it. If you’ve already seen the first one then that part is no longer a mystery, but when you find out that theirs another creepy ghost girl haunting the place while Sachiko is just sleeping someplace else, it kind of makes you wonder. Secondly, why does this ghost have a fascination with Tamaki? Is it because she’s the one responsible for bringing them her or is it something else?

We know from the first Corpse Party that Sachiko and all the other spirits and dead bodies are trapped in that other dimension. But, for some strange reason we caught her hanging around Tamaki before the spell was cast. How and why is the question and the story just sucks you right in.

Another reason I liked this manga so much is because we see a couple of the old characters in this version which I thought was awesome. Since, this manga is still ongoing I do not know if we’ll end up seeing all of them or maybe the ones who didn’t make it out from the last story.

Anyway, this version of Corpse Party is a really interesting read with a lot more mystery behind it. I really hope that Tamaki will face her fears and get out and that someone or something kills Erina.

Once Bitten Twice Shy (Jaz Parks Series)

The first book to the Jaz Parks series is called “Once Bitten, Twice Shy” by Jennifer Rardin, who is unfortunately deceased and will be missed.

The first book mostly centers around a woman named Jaz Parks who works for a company that tracks down and kills evil supernaturals. In this story, supernaturals finally came out of the dark and have taken their place in society. Also, because of this the government has placed several laws for the supernaturals to follow because if they don’t they’ll send Jaz Parks to come find and kill you.

She’s known for being one of the best assassins that they have, but also one of the most reckless. Her boss, Pete, is a serious penny pincher so when he has to keep paying for all of the bills for repairs that she keeps breaking like expensive cars, hospital bills, state of the art weaponry, he gets her a partner.

That partner is Vayl. A sexy and powerful century old vampire who has the power to control ice. Theirs  a lot of mystery around him that comes with all vampires. Vayl wanted to become Jaz’s partner for some reason which he is yet to reveal to her. I could already tell that he was in love with her and was falling harder to more they were together. But, what good would any love story be without a love rival.

That’s when the sweet jokester named Cole Bemont comes in. He’s what every girl dreams of dating, which ends up driving Vayl up the wall. This was so jealous of Cole that the moment they saw each other, they kept sizing each other up. Since, Vayl doesn’t show much emotion except maybe anger or disapproval the only way someone knows how he’s feeling is by the temperature in the room. Since, he has the power to control ice when he’s really mad about something, he’ll make the room drop a couple of degrees.

Jaz and Vayl are like fire and ice. They are complete opposites but work really well together. So, far they have encountered vampires, demons and seers. I look forward to reading the second book to see what will happen to this ass kicking duo.

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.

Akame Ga Kill Has Arrived!

Source: http://www.entravity.com

(Left to Right: Mine, Akame, Bulat, Tatsumi, Leone, Lubbock and Sheele)

If you’ve haven’t heard about it yet then your going to hear about it now. The awesome and popular manga Akame Ga Kiru is being turned into an anime. Congrats Akame Ga Kiru!

But, I wasn’t that too surprised to hear this. The manga is so freaking awesome and addictive to read that I was surprised that it didn’t already have one out. Now for all of you guys who don’t have a clue what this new show is about it’s about a boy named Tatsumi who travels to the capital with his three best friends in order to gain some rep and money to save their village. Things don’t go exactly as planned and Tatsumi ends up joining up with Nigh Raid. A group of deadly assassins that kill the evil and corrupted that live inside the capital.

For now their are only a couple episodes out, since its new. From what I watched so far I feel like its going way faster than in the manga, but the art is beautiful though. Also, I’m feeling that much intensity like I was when reading the manga, but that could be due to already knowing what’s going to happen. Even though, I’ve already read ahead I look forward to the next episode of Akame Ga Kill.

Tokyo Ghoul

Source: http://www.kyou-konnen.blogspot.com

I’ve been hearing a lot about this new anime show named Tokyo Ghoul. Before I even watched the show I decided to watch a quick trailer, so I could feel the show out a little. What I saw in the short clip shocked and amazed me and I knew I had to see more. Unfortunately, since this show is brand new it only has up to three episodes so far. But, their awesomeness makes up for their lack of episodes.

Tokyo Ghoul is centered in a modern world where creatures called “Ghouls” exist. When I say ghouls I do not mean the mindless zombies that are controlled by vampires like in Hellsing or in any other vampire story. These ghouls have intelligence, powers and social lives. The Ghouls in this anime eat human flesh to survive, they can’t eat normal human food because it tastes awful to them. One even said that its like eating horse crap. But, some of them have learned to ‘fake’ eating normal food in front of humans. I kind of felt bad they had to keep pretending to like it the food to survive, you’ll see the main character ,Kaneki, throw up a lot from just eating a single bite.

Warning: Spoilers Ahead!

Speaking of Kaneki, he is our main character in this show. Now from what I can tell ghouls aren’t created, they are born like everything else in the world. I say this because Kaneki is human, but after going on a date that turned into an attempted murder by the girl of his dreams, Rize, who is a feared ghoul among her kind and tried to eat him. Things don’t according to plan and Rize ends up dying. Now things get strange when Kaneki wakes up to find himself a ghoul himself or more like a half-ghoul. Apparently, Kaneki was so badly injured during the attack they transferred some of Rize’s body parts to him which caused some unusual effects.

Now, he must learn to hide the fact that he’s a ghoul from the humans and from his best friend, Hide, while quickly learning and fitting into ghoul society. This is a very good anime even with its lack of episodes. Also, like most anime shows it was a manga before becoming and anime. The manga is called, “Toukyou Kushu” and what I realized when I first started reading it was that the art in the manga and the art in the anime was completely different to such a degree that it shocked me. The effect I got from watching it was much more powerful than reading it for me. So, I think I’ll just for more episodes to come out and see what happens next.

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.

Attack on Titan:Part 2

Source:www.otakuhouse.com

You’ve already probably noticed that I’m just going to talk about part 2 of Attack on Titan, instead, of part 1. That’s because I’ve already talked about part 1 on my old blog which if any of you would to glance at it’s at http://www.L0VANIME.blogspot.com.

Anyway onto the story, if you’ve already watched Attack on Titan then you already know the gist of the story. The human race is at the brink of extinction because of the man-eating titans and to avoid absolute death they built a huge wall around their kingdom which held for 2000 years. It gets seriously more intense after everyone finds out about Eren’s ability to turn himself into a titan. Even after Eren saves them all and helps them reclaim some of their territory, the people in his town still hate him and call him a monster which I thought was pretty messed up. If he really was a monster then he wouldn’t have saved any of them. It got worse when the people decide that they need to hold a trial for him to see if he should live or die.

If he dies then they just lost their only hope of survival, but if they decide to let him stay alive then he would have to join the Scout Regiment. The Scout Regiment is where soldiers who choose to fight the titans outside of their walled city. Unfortunately, after the attack no one wanted to be in it for fear of getting eaten.

I’m not going to spoil want happened during the trial or what they plan to do to him for the people who haven’t watched it yet, but let me tell you that its intense and depressing. I felt bad for Eren.

Then, comes one of my favorite characters in this anime. Levi, a powerful and respected soldier of the Scout Regiment group. He’s this strict, clean freak who always has a sour look on his face. But, for some reason cares about Eren and doesn’t seem to be afraid of him. My second favorite character in the Scout Regiment would have to be Hange. She’s always really happy, especially, when titans are involved. She’s like the scientist of the group, but don’t be fooled she’s just as lethal as the rest of them.

I don’t know which moment I liked better in part 2 of Attack on Titan, it would either have to be when a female titan appeared. Yes, I said a female titan appears out of no where kicking everyone’s ass. Or at the season finale, when Eren and the female titan face off in titan forms. I’m not going to reveal the secret identity of the other titan, you’re going to have to see for yourself.

My only problem with this anime would have to be that their aren’t enough episodes. The season is over and there is no sign of anymore episode or part 3 coming out the woodwork. They left behind too many questions and not enough answers, so I’ll be anxiously waiting for more episodes. Until next time.
