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.

Rosario Vampire Season 1

 

(Characters: Kurono, Ruby, Moka, Mizore and Yukari)

Rosario Vampire is an anime that I think anyone can get into. It’s about a normal human boy named Tsukune who becomes so desperate to pass any schools’ entrance exams that he ends up taking and passing the exam to attend Yokai Academy. Little did he know that he was now going to attend a school for monsters.

For obvious reasons your probably thinking,” Well, why doesn’t he just leave?” The creators of this anime thought about this, too. According to the story, humans can’t even get into the monster world which is where you have to go to even get to the school because its protected by a barrier. This makes you wonder how he is able to even get in there. They also say that if they ever catch a human in the their world then he is to be executed on the spot. Poor Tsukune.

If things weren’t bad enough for him the bus that brought him there only comes once a month. After, his initial freak out moment a silver lining appears and its name is Moka. She’s cute, perky and a vampire! The moment they met she sucked his blood and became hooked, now their the best of friends much to the guys of Yokai Academy’s dismay. She unknowingly became the one of the most beautiful and popular girls in the school and every guy in school becomes totally jealous of Tsukune. In turn gets him in a lot of fights of the school.

During his first with the ogre I thought he was going to die, but I wiped that thought from my mind because their was no way that they would kill the main character in the first episode. During the first episode, Moka’s bad ass personality is revealed. When the rosary that she always wears comes off, her hair turns silver and her entire personality changes into a kick butt vampire.

Later, in the story Tsukune not only builds a reputation among his fellow classmates but also builds himself a bit of a harem of beautiful and powerful girls. Later, we have Kurono, who is a succubus who originally planned to steal away Moka’s popularity, so she can turn all of the guys into her love slaves. But, she ends up falling in love with Tsukune and tries whatever she can to get him to fall for her. Then there is Yukari, who is a genius witch who loves to play tricks on people. The stalker want to be girlfriend,Mizore, is a ice monster that has also fallen for Tsukune and follows him everywhere. Later, in the season another witch named Ruby who I like to think is kind of like Yukari’s big sister in a way since their witches and all.

Last but not least, we have Gin, the Werewolf. He is the only other guy in the group and I think his monster form is totally awesome. Too bad, he’s such a pervert. He’ll do anything to look up a girl’s skirt and he also likes to take photos of girls undressing in the locker rooms. Everyone knows he does it, but he’s so fast and sneaky that he never gets caught.

This anime is filled with romance, monsters, mystery and plenty of monster fighting and I enjoyed every minute of it. I’m hoping that the second season is just as good as the first one.

The Rising

I was so happy as I was reading the third and final book ‘The Rising’. The reason why would have to be because my wish was finally granted. Chloe’s group and Maya’s group finally meet in this book. I practically cheered when they finally came into the story.

How they ended up meeting was kind of funny. Maya ended meeting Derek in the forest, while both of them were in animal mode. You could say that their first meeting didn’t go over so well. Which ended leading to Chloe and Daniel having to come to the rescue. I wasn’t surprised when I read that scene. Chloe’s group was also still on the run and Derek probably thought that she was some kind of supernatural assassin.

Now, for people who have yet to read this book, I’m not going to ruin it for you. But, I will say that Maya’s love life takes some hits. Well, more than it endured during the last two books.

Also, what we already suspected about the reason for Serena’s death was confirmed.

Spoiler: Nicole killed Serena.

But, we’ve already knew this. I also liked seeing Nicole’s personality switches. She’s a very good actress and she fooled a lot of people thinking that she was innocent. If it wasn’t for the fact that, she probably didn’t know that she was switching from an innocent high school girl to an evil, self-centered and jealous killer. I’m not going to tell you what happens to her in the story because like I always say I don’t want to spoil anything to you.

I have enjoyed reading this entire series and I can’t wait to read more of Kelley Armstrong’s work in the future. The only thing that I wish would be to see a book about them years later. I really want to know how they ended up in the future. For example, who ends up with who, did they have kids, did any of them end up getting married or did any of them separate and try to be on their own? Unfortunately, there is no such book, so all we can do is use our imagination. I hope that you all enjoy this book and its awesome ending as much as I do.

Thanks for Reading!

 

The Awakening: Secrets Revealed

Things start to heat up in The Awakening. If you’ve read my last post then you already know that this book is the second book to the Dark Powers series by Kelley Armstrong.

Anyway, in this book it becomes an adventure in which the four supernatural teens are searching desperately for Simon and Derek’s missing father.Orginally, the four run aways were supposed to be Chloe, Simon and Rae. But, as the saying goes shit happens and now its Chloe, Simon, Tori and Derek on the run from the Edison Group. The Edison Group is a group of magical doctors whose goal was to help other supernaturals with their problems and help co-exist with society. What seems helpful to them turns to become deadly for our main heroes.

In the second book it looks like Chloe’s patience and caring nature are tested when she becomes forced to travel with Tori and Derek. I think if Simon wasn’t there then I think she would have bolted long ago and went her own way and I wouldn’t blame her. Eventually, we see a little bit of a romantic twist in this story when it starts to hint that Simon AND Derek might have a thing for our cute necromancer. Of course, everyone probably thinks that she’ll end up with Simon, but I wouldn’t bet on it.

Warning: Spoiler approaching!

When our main characters have no choice end up splitting for reasons I will not reveal. You start seeing Derek going a little bit soft on her and really start to bond. I found his protectiveness touching when it came to protecting her. I was kind of hoping that they might become an item before they reunite with the others, but no such luck. Now that I have seen the protective and softer side of him I’m starting to hope that they will get together. Sorry, Simon!

After, reading the book I wondered about what Simon and Derek’s adventure was like during the sepeartion. According, to Tori it wasn’t pleasant, which only made my curisoity grow even more. Turns out that you can read about their adventure from a book called “Darkest Powers Bonus Pack”. I very much look forward to reading that one.

I can’t wait to see what is going to happen in the third book. I bet she’ll try to make this one as cool and amazing as possible before it reaches its end.
