The Ancient Magus Bride

I usually don’t like talking about brand new mangas because they only have a couple of available, but for this one I’ll make an exception. The new manga called The Ancient Magus Bride a.k.a Mahou Tsukai No Yome was created by a brand new artist named Yamazaki Kore. I give my props to the creator of this manga, it totally sucked me into the story and before I knew it, I was at the end and am now patiently waiting for the next chapter to come out.

This manga is about a girl named Chise who suddenly ends up in an auction to be sold to a bunch of rich people. Her  suddenly being auctioned off in the beginning of the story isn’t what caught my eye it was the fact that not only was she being sold in a world where magical creatures and other beings exist, but she was bought by a very mysterious person. Now, because this is a romance manga I bet most of you are thinking she was sold to a beautiful, mysterious person or something like that, right?

If you are then, you are DEAD WRONG!

Apparently, she’s sold to a very powerful sorcerer that everyone hates for some strange reason and not only that his head is an animal skull. No, its not a mask or a disguise spell or anything like that. That’s his real face! Besides, the fact that he as a animal skull for a head, the fact that he tries to cover it up with a small veil is very funny to me. It’s not like it’s really hiding anything. The moment you see him using the veil you can already tell that his face is disfigured in some way, so why hide it when you live in a world where creatures just like him exist?

Now let’s go back to Chise. She’s a red headed 16 year old girl who is suddenly bought by this strange sorcerer, but she seems to be really cool with it. In fact, her only main concerns were what he wanted her to do for him. You would think she would try to run or at least resist a little, but that’s not the case with her. You’ll find out later, she had a pretty good reason to act the way she acting, but like always I won’t spoil it for you.

After, reading the first chapter I didn’t know if I should be happy, sad or scared for Chise. To make things really interesting in story, not only does she get bought from an auction by an animal headed sorcerer, it turns out that he bought her for two reasons. First, to make her his apprentice. Secondly, to make her his future wife.

That really caught me off guard especially the way he proposed the idea to her. This manga is quite awesome and actually reminded me of a another manga that I’ve read a long time ago, but that can wait for another time. People are always saying, ‘Don’t judge a book by its cover’ or ‘Don’t let another person’s looks fool you’ in this story Chise is going to have to see if she can love a man where the person inside might be exactly the same as his cover.

My Hometown Story

Hometown Story that is for the Nintendo 3DS is a very simple game. This game is in the same family as Harvest Moon. If you don’t know what that is it’s a farming/sim game.

In this game, you choose the gender and name of your character of your character and then your story begins. It begins with your grandmother’s death and now there is no one to operate her once popular story. Her furry flying, talking pet would have done it but she lacks opposable thumbs which an requirement to operating the shop.

Everything about the game is simple. The graphics, the controls for the game and the characters. Some of things that I’ve come to hate about this game is the camera. You know how usually when you play a game you can use your controls to move it any way that you want. Well, you can’t do that in this game. Also, no matter how much profit you end up making for the day, everybody in town will take it away so you’ve got something to sell tomorrow.

Also, their are items that you can buy but you can’t sell. If your wondering that I can just give it to someone your wrong. If a person doesn’t come right up to me and says that they want a particular item from me, it just stays in my storage. So, what is the point of buying these certain items? Well, the answer is quite simple ladies and gentlemen.

Absolutely nothing.

This game is so simple that it’ll wrack at your nerves. I think maybe this type of game would only be entertaining to people who are complete beginners in the gaming world.

Ouji to Majou to Himegimi

This manga is about a girl, who I thought was a boy when I first saw her, named Subaru. She used to go to school at a all girls school until she found out that her dad was back in town and wanted to move closer to him. So, now she’s moving to a co-ed school and now lives next door to her old childhood friend, Megumi.

Megumi seems to be a little off sometimes because you don’t what he’s thinking. Sometimes, he would say and do things randomly like where pink or suggest seafood as good bedroom decoration. But, then later he would at serious and cool like he’s always been that way. I find him to be really funny.

Anyway, when she goes to this school she gains the attention of the three most popular guys at school, that also happen to be Megumi’s best friends. They tell her that she was a handsome womanizing prince in a past life that let the princesses that were after his heart start a war over him. This making a local witch get mad at him and curse him to be reborn as a woman over and over. The only way to break the curse is to fall in love with her true love.

Also, the curse also effected the princesses, as well. But, they got turned into boys and they remember all of their past lives except Subaru. She only remembers one fragment of her past life, but hasn’t really connected the dots yet.

So, now all three of the guys are competing for her love, so they can get finally break the curse. The three princes are Reiji, Ibusaki and Mashiro. Reji is the reincarnation of Cinderella and I would have to say that he is my favorite out of the three. This loves to bully people especially, Subaru and everyone but her doesn’t mind it one bit. If you really think about it, his personality makes a lot of sense. He’s the reincarnation of Cinderella who was mistreated by her step-mother and step-sisters for a long time. So, I guess when she got reincarnated she decided it was time for a little payback.

Ibusaki is the reincarnation of Thumbelina. He’s super cute and happy go lucky or he likes playing that off really well. If theirs one thing you don’t want to do its pissing him of because suddenly he’ll go from innocent bystander to kick ass martial artist. He displayed some of that in the beginning of the story when they saw some guys dump water on top of Subaru’s head. For some reason, this character kind of reminds me of Honey in Ouran Host Club.

Last but not least, their is Mashiro who is the reincarnation of Sleeping Beauty. We all know who Sleeping Beauty is, she’s the princess who was loved by animals and got poisoned by eating an apple which caused her to go into an eternal sleep. His personality didn’t surprise me at the least, but his love for apples did. You would think that after what happened last time in his past life that he would stay from apples, but he’ll eat anything apple flavored. This guy is an air head and always looks like he’s about to fall asleep, but miraculously he pays a lot of attention to what he’s doing and animals love to be around him.

If you asked me who I think will win her heart, I think it would be Megumi. That’s because he’s her childhood friend, looks out for her and I think that eventually he’s going to become a little jealous after seeing these three around her for so long. This manga right now is incomplete and I can’t wait to see who Subaru will end up choosing.

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.
