Dangan Ronpa: The Animation

Dangan ronpa is set in an elite school where all the ‘Super duper high school’ students reside. They are meant to kill each other without getting found out in order to graduate. There’s no other way out. And all this is said by a sadistic bear, Monokuma. And it has ‘two sides’ on its face so CREEPY ALERT!! I kind of have a fear of bear dolls so yeah…

The show was thrilling, and really creepy, because I’m more scared of survival/trust creepy than sad creepy (deadman wonderland). Yes, I have different standards of creepy and this one is the ‘I can’t trust anyone, and if I turn around there’s a 100% chance I will die’. Episode 10 I think gave us a nice big fright when Naegi checked out the hidden room, only to be knocked out by the mysterious masked girl. SCARED THE LIVING WITS OUTTA ME! The opening is really nice though, so I highly suggest you watch it just for the music; you can’t find it elsewhere. Not at night though, remember, you can’t trust anyone fufufu… Nowhere is safe.. So minus the creepy parts, though they are what makes this show good, I’d give it a 4/5 because the plot’s gripping, not a thousand episodes, and I love mystery. This totally reminds me of Ace Attorney, a nintendo game I used to play. The blood is pink so I’m not gonna say it’s gory. The ‘punishment’ time is in a different sort of graphic (please understand lol), not anime but like the comic sort… They probably did that to lessen the grotesque part but personally, that scares me even more. Don’t ask, I just have a ‘thing’ for comic graphic type.

Naegi. I thought he was gonna be the typical ‘I’m so useless’ main character, but turns out he’s not, thankfully. Naegi is pretty smart, and he catches on quickly, and it’s really funny to see him THAT’S WRONG! everyone else. Though this means he’s the number 2 culprit that killed most of his friends. There’s one part about him that he should change though. Trusting your friends too much. As seen in episode 1, he refused to believe that Maizono might have originally planned on killing him. Such naive thinking. Luckily he changes that mindset in all the other episodes. If not, punishment time would be obvious. If you want pictures, this is not the blog for you. I only screenshot when I remember to and feel like, and I don’t like screenshotting characters. Just search online. By the way, this show has little to no romance.

Kirigiri. I love her name, it must be so fun to say. She’s a very pretty girl I must say, her lilac hair and eyes, and her purple outfit is awesome (I’m just biased since I like purple); especially her fabulous boots. Kirigiri is obviously the smartest out of all of them since she was Super Duper High School Detective. She’s the sharpest too, and was the only one out of all of them to realise she had amnesia. It took them 13 episodes while she already knew the moment she woke up. Kirigiri is very good at controlling her emotions, so she isn’t the annoying type. The ideal deuteragonist I’d say.

Fukawa/Genocider Syo. It’s funny how she’s a high school serial killer because that has happened way too many times. It’s so mainstream it’s funny. Fukawa has a very unique seiyuu because she doesn’t sound like any anime girl I’ve ever watched. Therefore I kinda like it; her voice. Fukawa likes Togami and she stalks him everywhere.

20131015-162726.jpg Answering questions for him even.. And guess what? She’s the female non-gay alter ego of Greil Sutcliffe.

20131015-162808.jpg Right? Moving on…

Togami. I don’t like him because he comes across as ‘artificial’ and is only acting as a detective. It’s almost as if he’s copying Kirigiri the detective and Naegi the pointer. He acts rather suspiciously and I’ve suspected him of murdering someone more than once (twice, really). Too bad I was wrong and he’s actually innocent all this while. He has a terrible personality and doesn’t hesitate to insult anyone, mainly Fukawa. He’s from some rich family by the way.

Hagakure. He’s the high school super duper shaman and sure looks like it. He’s a very easily swayed character and not observant at all. He didn’t even realise that his own crystal ball was gone and he is always wrong during the trials. I don’t dislike him nor do I particualrly like him, since he’s just a background character that doesn’t do much..

Ishimaru. I quite liked him (in a ‘hm, you seem like a not bad character) since he took the whole bro thing quite seriously. It’s a pity that he died because I think he might have been able to contribute to the plot quite a bit. The one problem about him is his eyes. They really resemble those of a hypnotised or evil anime person. So it’s deeply disturbing every time his face is suddenly zoomed in upon, lol.

Yamada. Unlike many, I’m not gonna label him as a fat pig or anything because that’s a terrible thing to do. I’m not that mean. He really liked Alter Ego because it would listen to him talk about his interests. That is one thing that really made him seem nicer and not an arrogant asshole who has no right to be one (eg those characters who are ugly and fat but think they’re the most beautiful people). He is probably much more insecure than we know so people, don’t judge him.

Mondo. His hairstyle is unique in a way but it doesn’t annoy me particularly. He is your average ‘dude’ and that’s what made him kill Fujisaki. I still admire his bro code thing going on (he tried to make sure no one could find out Fujisaki’s secret) and wish that everything worked out. Oh well.

Fujisaki. It’s obvious enough that he’s my favourite character. Firstly, he’s really cute as a girl or boy and it doesn’t matter if he crossdresses; either way I’d like him. He is also really innocent and didn’t want to kill anyone. He never harboured any evil intentions and even tried to change himself instead of hiding his secret. Admirably cute. I was so disappointed that he died because I really like cute characters and they’re always my favourite. Note: I said cute not perky so irritating girls will NOT do.

Celestia. I never liked her because I always saw her as a suspicious character. We know barely anything about her and she could easily trick them all into thinking something. She was also the first person that I guessed was the murderer, and was correct. I knew something was up when she managed to get away twice from the Justice Robot with only a little scratch. If the JR was really a killing machine, wouldn’t it have made sense if she died too? And who would believe that she got attacked just ‘cuz she had a tiny harmless scratch.. Her voice irks me too, and she’s clearly my most disliked character, next to Maizono.

Junko. I find her really cute actually meaning I wasn’t really happy that she literally killed herself. It doesn’t matter that she’s insane and loves being in despair, I actually quite liked her. She’s the type of antagonist that would die without the main characters killing them. It’s like willingly dying. They’re the most ‘easy’ villains. Anyway, Junko died really happy because she’s crazy and she somehow managed to survive every ‘punishment’ until Naegi’s one. Making her the villain meant that Dangan Ronpa became a thousand times less creepy but it was only 2 episodes and clearly not enough to allow me to sleep peacefully. I think that dolls in general are so scary in every show besides comedies. Monokuma was no different and I felt creeped out because of his eagerness to kill and harm people. I can’t explain it (lol, why am I even explaining why I’m afraid of what I’m afraid of??)

This was actually a draft from last monday and I don’t know how to continue it so I’ll just stop here. Sorry I haven’t updated in FOREVER! Things have been quite hectic (school and my cca just started) so I haven’t had the chance to type a post! I didn’t forget, really!!

~seijuurou
P.S. I’m actually not that into KnB right now because it’s like rereading the manga. I never ever reread, I hate it. I already know what’s going to happen so if anything, I’d just find the part I forgot and yeah. That’s why I haven’t started reading Letter Bee’s manga because I don’t want to re-know everything… I’m just waiting for AKASHI to show up!!!!!!

Shingeki no kyojin

Shingeki no kyojin. The first thing that comes to your mind will either be ‘Oh, that mainstream anime that I still haven’t made time to watch’ or ‘THAT AWESOME SHOW?! Why did it end?!’ I’m on the same page as the first option people.

I am a person with a positive outlook on life (no, I’m just being sarcastic) so while being bored out of my skull while waiting for oral at school, I was watching anime. Of course when I wasn’t complaining as though somebody cut my queue or something. I downloaded a couple of episodes of Death Note (I still haven’t completed it), Shingeki no kyojin and thought ‘This is gonna be a great fun day where I spend all my time watching cool gripping shows. I’ll even forget about the lack of a fan system’. Buuuuuut, reality is never the same as what you think. Already tired and not wanting a heavy draggy anime at the moment, I stopped watching DN. It was getting kind of boring and filler-y. So I obviously thanked the heavens that I download SNK so at least I’d have something to do.

But no. SNK’s first episode was being a total b**** to me. Even after taking forever to download, it was not HD. Awesome right? Blur images, just what I want when I’m sleepy and bored (and kind of blind). Then, the wonderful video decided to give me the chance to stare at Misaka or Mikasa for like 3 minutes. I don’t even know what happened but whenever I paused… Mikasa. I have yet to find out what section of the show she even came from. So I just went back all the way to the front and waited five WHOLE minutes for it to go back to where Mikasa appeared/where the video stopped. But I suddenly had to switch off my phone completely. Opening it up again, Mikasa. And so I went back to the front and when I finally got to my point, I got a show for 48 seconds then…. You get the gist. So since I was already rather frustrated, bored, sleepy and getting a headache from watching in a bus, I really didn’t wanna watch SNK anymore.

The end.

Just kidding, I gotta tell you how the first episode was right? Besides that it hanged every time I paused or scanned forward (I HAD TO WATCH THE OPENING TWICE. Anyone who watches anime understands my pain, considering that I didn’t have my earphones on). So the first episode started off with Mikasa talking ’bout the day they won’t forget and some people fighting for mankind or something, then the stupid opening I couldn’t skip, then Eren’s nightmare or daymare or treeshademare. Mikasa appeared (as in properly, not when my show hangs) and obviously asks Eren what’s wrong. They talk about his mare and go off into the city(?) At the city, they’re still talking about Eren crying and some drunkard comes up. Drunkard talks about the titans not breaking in and they have nothing to worry about, and our already interesting protagonist starts getting angry and blah. I kind of forgot everything already and who remembers stuff they did when they wanted to sleep anyway??? Okay that’s where the whole show hanged forever and I gave up watching.

The first episode. I’m a really persevering person so I decided to watch the second episode since it wouldn’t hang and y’know. But because I didn’t know which one the second episode was, I just clicked a random one. I may have watched episode 3 instead, who knows? Anyway, everyone there was wearing the SNK uniform and getting yelled at by a vulgar guy. This poor girl eating a potato got punished. Surprisingly our protagonist didn’t get picked on so yay. Ends off with the punished girl carrying out her punishment, then the dreaded opening.. Aaaaand, it hanged.

I don’t want to continue SNK at all unless it’s really very good. As I’ve said in DN, I really want a gripping anime that makes me want to watch it. Otherwise a light-hearted one which SNK obviously is not. So if I ever do end up continuing this popular series, I’ll tell y’all, but for now, I’m not even gonna try. It’s way too tiring to watch a hanging show. My exams just ended, no more stressful things please.

Kuroshitsuji episode 11 & 12

This is the continuation of creepy guy and master. The beginning was funny because of Pluto. He was sent away by Sebastian

20131001-125637.jpg who hoped he would be of use to Ciel. Suddenly a dog appeared, and so did Greil! Ugh. That homo. Pluto went into heat because of the dog (horny dawg..) and that’s what attracted Greil. When Pluto seemed to be attempting to assault Greil, the crazy reaper was all

20131001-125828.jpg Crazy. He even said Ciel steals all the good men; Sebastian, then Pluto. Anyway, Pluto was running past Greil not to attack him, but because he was running towards the doll house that Lizzy had entered previously. The dollhouse had so many dolls (that was creepy enough) and they looked exactly like the kidnapped girls. I wanted to stop watching already, but I thought ‘No. What if I wanna write a horror story? This would be a great reference’. They should have just made Kuroshitsuji a horror movie with three episodes. 10, 11, 12 and possibly 13. I’m sure my point got across keke…

In the dollhouse, (I’m talking about Lizzy’s experience) Creepy Guy was there. When he said ‘the best present for your loved one’, I already knew he would say ‘would be yourself’. How predictable. I knew that Lizzy would be made into a doll too! Not scary at all!

When Ciel arrived in it, the Lizzy doll was already on display. Like I said, still not scary at all! So the threesome entered the door somewhere in the shop. Ciel knew that he couldn’t possibly survive on his own or with Pluto, so he told Greil to protect him, on the condition that he would grant him any wish. Greil was all ‘I’m not a cheap woman who would be swayed by money’ until Ciel said he’d let him do anything he wants with Sebastian for a day.

20131001-130720.jpg Not a cheap woman at all. (Wait what, woman?!) When they entered the mansion, they were greeted with creepy doll #1. When Greil wanted to slash her, Ciel was like ‘No don’t!’ but as it turns out, it was just a doll so there’s nothing to worry about. Then suddenly Creepy Guy appears and sings Creepy My fair lady Song and brings out Creepy Dolls. They were made of iron and when Greil went to kill them, Ciel was like ‘No don’t!’ again. They were really just dolls. But Greil was unable to slash them because scissors against iron is like me against anyone. So Ciel, being the noble man that he is, decided to leave Greil and Pluto to ‘play’ with the dolls and go find Lizzy on his own.

On his way there, weird stuff happened and he ended up in Creepy Room with his print thing on the floor. I don’t really get it, but I’ll find out more soon enough. Then Sebastian appears in the window and brings Ciel away from harm’s reach. Ciel slaps him saying that the whole point was to rescue Lizzy not him, but Sebastian said his contract was more important, and also,

20131001-131735.jpg They reasoned (haha quoting Creepy Guy) that the only place left to search for Lizzy was the Sealed tower. They happened to meet Greil and Pluto there too. Since Pluto’s a demon dog, he was able to open the ‘unearthly’ door. In there, they did find Lizzy, but Creepy Guy suddenly unleashed his puppet strings ability and started making Lizzy try to kill Ciel. But thanks to Greil’s scissors, the strings were cut. When he was about to do so, Ciel was all ‘No, don’t!’ but Lizzy was not harmed at all. Ciel, will you just calm yo tits? Sebastian just explained that Greil was gunna cut ’em strings. Creepy Guy ties them all up with his strings and started saying that he would make Ciel a doll too. (Oh man I just forgot what he actually said) So Sebastian finds it suitable to ask Creepy Guy (I’m just gonna start calling him CG okay, it’s so long to type) what he’s made of. CG says that he thought he was human, but recently termites have been falling out of his ear. Dude, are you serious? Humans can’t even turn their head more than 90 degrees. And they don’t creak either. Sebastian, being the only useful one there, uses his leg to kick the weapon that Lizzy used just now (is it bad that I don’t know what it’s actually called?) and knocks CG down. The strings disappeared, and Sebastian properly kills CG.

20131001-132516.jpg And just when I thought he couldn’t be any creepier! But somehow, I’m starting to like him more. It may be the way he keeps saying ‘I reasoned’ or it could just be the seiyuu. Or maybe because he dOESN’T TURN HIS HEAD 360 DEGRESS ANYMORE. He also somehow reminds me of Akashi… I don’t really know, but besides the owl and doll thing, Drossel Keinz is starting to appeal to me. Why couldn’t he live a lil’ longer or be taken into the Phantomhive mansion??

After the whole fight, this suddenly happened

20131001-133954.jpg but I forgot the actual reason. Just wanted you to be freaked out with Greil.

CG suddenly stands back up, and with all the stuffing dropping out, decides that he needs to report to his master. He basically just led them all to his master. Pluto was at the master’s seat, licking his finger. then the master starts talking, and says that he didn’t know why CG wanted to make Ciel a doll, since he was ‘unclean, unwanted and barren’. Ciel obviously gets angry and throws that wretched ring at the master’s chair. The master suddenly started repeating himself a lot, which made Ciel shout ‘STOP IT!’. The voice becomes like a toy’s; the creepy sort, and Ciel runs to discover the master’s identity. The cliched shocked face moment appears, and everyone else also gets shocked. Then the camera reveals that the master was really just a sort of scarecrow, and that a creepy wooden doll/nutcracker clown thing was lying in its lap. I honestly wasn’t expecting it, but the clown suddenly went all horror freak show which scared everyone including me and Greil. The ‘cheap woman’ took the opportunity to grab Sebastian’s shoulders and hide behind him. I thought the episode was frightful enough, and this HAD to happen.

In the end, everyone was celebrating Ciel’s birthday in his mansion. He found the wretched ring in his pudding, and Sebastian claimed that it would bring his happiness. Annoying Elizabeth became all ‘KYAAA~ you’ll have eternal happiness!!’ and I really wanted to smash her face in. How does Ciel bear with her selfish stupidity? Lizzy in the beginning even asked Paula how she could always be so happy, jingling away (she didn’t even pay for it, I don’t know how she got away with that. Hope she teaches me. The art of grabbing things to show someone else then leaving to follow that person without paying. Brilliant.) Lizzy is the exact replica of an annoying brat that you want to be the antagonist so that she’ll die in the end. She acts so happy-but-sad. I hate that. If you’re sad stop trying to be like ‘I’m just gonna hide my sadness and force a fake smile’. Like those whores on tumblr and twitter. Paula probably has her own fair share of sad stuff but she doesn’t ruin other people’s moods by wallowing in self-pity like a certain brat. I already said that I’m starting to like Paula haven’t I? Well, she’s really cute and so is her obsession with the stolen tambourines. Lizzy would be like ‘Paula! The bells!’ And

20131001-153128.jpg How amicable! Turns out that Angela’s the evil one. I never liked her from the start anyway. She isn’t even beautiful and just resembles an old ghost. She also kind of played with Finny’s feelings, and worse of all pleasured herself with Pluto. That scene was gross, like seriously. There were actually a lot of clues that made it somewhat obvious that Angela’s evil. In episode 7, she got whipped by Henry Barrymore but then he was seen bowing down to her and all that. In episode 8 too, she said that she would definitely see them all again soon. In this episode, she finally revealed her true side.

20131001-153217.jpg We should have known!! Why else would Pluto be licking the ‘master’s’ hand?!

As a concluding note, Kuroshitsuji is an awesome anime, and I don’t want to do any more episode reviews for it. I have too many opinions. In this show, there’s no such thing as logic. English or Indian, they all speak Japanese. Isn’t that wonderful? They must all be so united.

~akashi
P.S. I think the reason I’m starting to like CG is because of his lips! Aha! Don’t look at me like that, now. It’s not like I’m weird or anything.
P.P.S. Why does CG have a name? That’s just plain weird. And when I searched ‘creepy guy kuroshitsuji’, he was one of the results!! Pfft.

Kuroshitsuji episode 9

Episode 9 was downright hilarious. Every series needs a lighthearted comedic scene and this was Kuroshitsuji’s.

It started off with Ciel discovering an old camera. Apparently the camera would transpose the most precious thing to the person who’s picture was taken into the photo. Ciel sent for the 3 servants and tested it out on Finny. Guess what came up? A bird. That Finny had ‘killed’ when he wanted to pet it. Finny’s such an animal inclined sweetie. At first I thought he was a girl O_O So Ciel ordered them to take a photo of Sebastian and they were all like ‘Yes, my lord!’ in the manner Sebastian does. Laughed like a maniac.

So obviously it was really funny because they were chasing Sebastian around the house, and forgetting to actually take the picture… Sebastian somehow knew just by looking at Ciel’s sheep and soldier pieces (that guy is no fun…) Sebastian then ordered the 3 servants to take Pluto away so as not to upset the guest (or is it scar the guest’s eyes..?), and they couldn’t get it done because they are so useful. This episode is where Finny showed his ‘abnormal strength’ that I wouldn’t have even realised had I not read it on the wikia AKA wispoiler.

Since the 3 servants didn’t manage to take Pluto away, he went to sleep outside the mansion. That was when Sebastian spotted a cat, and started caressing it. How cute! Pluto got jealous and

20131001-113935.jpg this happened. Sebastian says he hates dogs, I don’t think Pluto’s an exception.

Since the useful 3 servants couldn’t get a picture of Sebastian, Lau came in to help. After being so all-knowing…

20131001-114221.jpg All knowing indeed… Anyway, what he did was get his girl (the one he’s always with) to sit on the staircase and be all sexy. In the end, only the guest enjoyed the ‘show’. It was so funny, because the girl’s face was sooo expressive, and she was doing all sorts of weird, uncomfortable poses. On the staircase. Nearly died laughing.

After that, the guest had a meeting with Tanaka as a replacement for Ciel and Sebastian spewed lots of random plans that the Phantomhives are gonna have trouble fulfilling.

Ciel and Finny carry out their last resort, and Sebastian comes to save him. Meanwhile telling Ciel that he should’ve just asked him because he would do anything that he orders. Yay, Sebastian just made the 3 servants waste a day of their life doing nothing. And this lovely scene occurred…

20131001-114921.jpg After all this, the 3 servants go to a room to look at the photo they took of Sebastian during the celebration(?) Too bad though, because just when the picture was starting to form, Pluto came in and blew fire at them. That sucks. Sebastian’s just using you, you dawg!

In the end, Sebastian spots Ciel sleeping in his chair and takes a picture of him. Pluto happened to be outside clinging onto the window too, so he was taken too. Somehow the 3 servants got this photo, and were trying to decipher who’s important to who. (Guys, that picture wasn’t even taken with the special camera) They were obviously very confused because Sebastian was ‘transposed’ (or so they thought) into the picture, but he’s obviously alive. Then they decided to ignore that, and played with Pluto. Well, not exactly, more like get burnt by Pluto.

Deadman wonderland

Honestly I don’t really like this show. It’s very warped, creepy and gorey. (After all, it’s about the manipulation of blood…) The storyline is kind of interesting but the characters annoy me sometimes. And it’s so disgusting, because the directors are all ruthless and gross.

Ganta Igarashi. This boy rubs me the wrong way. I can’t stand the way he keeps acting like he’s an amazing hero. But at least he doesn’t do psychotic things like Minatsuki… Anyway, Ganta bites his thumb for blood. Ouch. I really can’t stand that sort of things, because I would never be able to bite my skin off. Plain gross. I understand he does it to survive, but, ouch, really.

Shiro. I don’t like how she is the red man. It’s really sad and I wish I could go into the story and save her from Ganta’s mother… So saddening, if you read it you’ll wanna cry for her. She doesn’t deserve to be tortured! She’s just an innocent child… And in chapter 45.2 she makes you wanna cry a river because

20130930-152106.jpg

20130930-152111.jpg
Shiro’s arm dropped off… Her helpless face really touches my heart. Why did she have to bear with this?! This show is messed up.

Senji Kiyomasa. He’s not bad for a deadman, considering that he can stand up against Toto.

Minatsuki. Ah, my favourite character. Am I the only one who finds her really pretty? Ever since her hair got cut, it seems like her crazy personality decreased a little. I mean, at least she doesn’t announce to the world that she wants to have sex.. O_o I pair her up with Senji because do you see how flustered he gets from her boobs? Go ahead, laugh.

Sukegawa. The homo.. His boyfriend cheated on him, which is how he ended up in DW. Another warped up story for you.. And nudity. Yucks.

Igarashi Sorae. This woman is the dog who created deadman and caused such misery to Shiro. So what if she apologises to Shiro? Will that change the fact that she was ruthlessly torturing her, for experimental purposes?

20130930-153005.jpg If you don’t already hate her, you’re twisted too then.

Hagire. The creepy director. The main antagonist that we all want to kill, but Ganta does that for us. I can’t believe he took Toto’s body, how unfair. In episode 7 though, when he licked Senji, it was hilarious.

20130930-153307.jpg In terms of yaoi, I ship them haha.

Toto Sakigami. He’s so attractive. (Hint: yellow eyes) Too bad that director took over his body. His obsession with Yosuga is lovely too. I mean, that gave us a chance to look at his sexy torso, no?

Takami. The promoter. I think he’s the worse, even worse than the director. He went bowling with that old man’s head! Who does that? I thought I saw wrongly but noo, it was a fact. That’s plain sadistic. And the part when his nurse just grabbed out Senji’s eye? Gross. I thought this show was bad enough, then I saw that. And it was only the second episode!

Madoka Shishito. I really wish I could save him in his past. It’s ridiculous. What sort of twisted kids would play othello using thumbtacks on someone’s back? Oh that’s right, unless it’s a DW character.

20130930-161129.jpg It’s just so sad. I wish I could have been there to save Madoka. Why are all these people having to suffer? Why? And it resulted in him becoming a murderer.

20130930-161229.jpg

20130930-161235.jpg

20130930-161240.jpg This chapter really made my heart clench. Are there actually people out there being bullied like this? And the poor Madoka, he’s so sad to even have to kill Ganta. It’s because of those bullies that he even believes such lies.

20130930-161758.jpg He really just wants people to be happy. To the point that he would make himself feel agony. (In the end he said ‘Thank you Ganta for your unhappiness. May have saved the world a little… I guess’) Poor guy…

So I think that if you’re the sort of person who likes gore and creepy dark stories, you’ll enjoy this manga. The show doesn’t really have so much of that ‘ew’ factor in it, but more of a ‘GANTA STOP OPENING YOUR EYES SO WIDE AND BE USEFUL!’ Even the choras box was made out of Shiro’s flesh. Could it get any worse than that? What the **** is wrong with all these people? How did they even obtain her flesh?! That’s what your probably thinking right? Well, let me show you the answer.

20130930-155402.jpg And they placed poor Shiro on a cross. These @!?$?#&£!!! This manga is really sad; the kind of sadness you feel when you see people getting tortured. (Since in this manga, that’s what’s happening..)

Please listen to my advice and don’t watch this unless you’re ready to look like

20130930-162334.jpg this throughout.

~akashi
P.S. I didn’t cry at all, just horrified. So you aren’t gonna need Kleenex

Zetsuen no Tempest

I accidentally deleted the first one (again) *sigh* so I’m gonna have to redo this review.

This show is really awesome. ‘Nuff said. The first anime that introduced me to PAWS (post-anime withdrawal syndrome). You should really go and watch it.

Yoshino Takigawa. Not a big fan of his hairstyle, but his imagination is pretty wild… And his nonchalant indifferent attitude can really crack me up some times.

Fuwa Mahiro. He’s the reason I started watching this in the first place. He’s ultra badass. Too bad he’s so attracted to his own sister, which is really weird if you ask me. Honestly I think it’s his yellow hair and red eyes? I totally have a fetish for yellow/red facial features. I don’t want to bother to rewrite the 18 lines I originally did again. (What if I delete this again?)

Hakaze Kusaribe. I really adore her. She’s amazing and pretty and upfront with her feelings. Hope Yoshino returns them, like now.

20130922-212103.jpg

Fuwa Aika. I really hated her at the beginning, with her self righteous-ness and criticising Yoshino so terribly. Then I watched the end and realised how cool she was with her Exodus sword and such. They’re all an amazing bunch of princesses, to say the least.

Megumu Hanemura. He’s really derpy. But probably also the smartest of the bunch (guessing that aika was yoshino’s girlfriend). Too bad he wastes his life clinging on to his terrible girlfriend who dumped him. That girl deserves to be punished, and most likely was by the tree of Exodus. I just wish he hadn’t given up so easily at the end, you should have fought on Megumu!!

Samon Kusaribe. He has that loser face. From the start, we all knew he wouldn’t be the main bad guy, he’s just a rather useless side character. When he got owned by Yoshino, it was just plain epic. Oh, not to mention, he looks exactly like Pandora Hearts’ Rufus Barma. Let me prove it to you.

20130923-140150.jpg

Natsumura Kusaribe. (Excuse me if I spelt wrongly) He is nothing special in the show, but definitely would look good with Evangeline. They kind of match. Evangeline’s the wild one and he’s the clear-headed one who controls her craziness. I am not particularly impressed with his skills or anything so moving on, (he kind of reminds me of Kuroh Yatogami in K…

Evangeline Yamamoto. She’s a pretty fabulous character, what with her Fraulein and outfit. I can’t decide between pairing her up with Junichirou or Natsumura. Someone help me!(◎_◎;)

Junichirou Hoshimura. Every show needs a pervert and he fits into that category. At first glance, you’d think he’s an innocent child

then he’d suddenly start talking about his porno collection or boobs. Yep. Totally innocent.

Tetsuma Kusaribe. I like him, he’s cool. (Hint: yellow eyes) He doesn’t do anything but drive everyone around so excuse the one-liner paragraph for him…

I think I covered all the characters already. The rating I’d give is 5/5. Or 4.9. It is that good. But I won’t really put it in comedy, I mean, there is some, but.. You get the point. Anyway, if you like chocolate and s’mores, go and watch it, like now. I’ll even give you a link! I never lie. I don’t want to spoil it too much for you!

P.S. The manga can only be bought from chapter 27 onwards. I can only find raws online.

Pandora Hearts

Pandora Hearts and Tegami Bachi are really very very similar. Not as in copycat similar, but like the storyline and overall feel. This is not my opinion. This is a fact.

I’m actually baking a butter cake now and I have another 15 minutes to go, and therefore I decided to blog.

Pandora Hearts is another old show like Ouran but hey, I’m starting from the beginning kay. I would give it a 3.5/5. I don’t really like how Oz looks like an 8 year old kid; he’s supposed to look 15. He looks just like Lag, who’s 12. And Alice too. You can say Oz is one of my least favourite characters in the whole show. I’m not a fan of his bipolar behaviour when one moment he’s upset over his father, and the other, playing with Gil and Alice. Oh, and the self sacrificial thing. Thank goodness Leo scolded him about that too. When Oz did that whole ‘close my eyes and swing a huge sword’ thing in the beginning, I really wanted to smack him. I wish all animes everywhere would stop this trend. If you are going to swing a sword and kill someone, would you close your eyes? Obviously not.

Alice, in my opinion, is very cute. I love how she’s so addicted to eating. And useful too. She doesn’t dislike anyone in particular either, which is great. She’s the perfect side character-pet person. And it was so hilarious when she was drunk too. Go and watch it now, episode 19.

Gilbert Nightray. The bromance between him and Oz is amazing. The way he still wants to serve Oz despite being 10 years older than him is adorable. Fangirls everywhere like to celebrate his uselessness, BUT i can’t help but agree. No matter how much I don’t like being ‘mainstream’, some facts just can’t be denied. I have no idea what Gil really does, up till now. But I love his hair. Black hair and hat? So mysterious and cool. The part when all the girls in Ada’s school crowded around him was funny too. And you have to watch ALL the scenes where he fights with Alice over Oz XD

Vincent Nightray. I hate everything about him; his personality, his voice, his hair, his womanising-ness; his clothes, his name, his room, his hobby (cutting toys), his hatred for my poor Alice, his dishonesty, his love for Gil (don’t take him from Oz!), etc except his eyes. I mean, they’re the same as my husband’s! How could I resist them?!

Leo & Elliot. Leo annoys me. Just accept Oz’s friendship will you?! And his hair. What’s with it sticking out? Plus, his unreasonable dislike towards Gil. Elliot is so much more level-headed.

Echo. She’s such a pretty and sweet girl, just like Tsukumo (Karneval). Too bad she gets taken over by the Vincent-obsessed Noise. Ew. Echo’s really cute and it was so funny when she told Oz how irritated she was with Vincent. Making her do weird stuff? Check.

Cheshire cat. My favourite character because I love cats. He’s really so cute and loyal and noble. Giving up his precious human form for the Intention. Too bad he died 😦 Break, Y U NO spare him?

Break & Sharon. Everyone loves Break, including me. Dat clown. Sharon? Not so much. She’s pretty useless some times. And his theme song, Truth, amazing!

Intention. I’ve nothing much about her since I haven’t read that much of the manga. Of course except psychotic eyeball plucker.

I can’t really remember any other (important) characters. I started reading he manga, but some times it’s really very confusing and I always forget what I read the day before. So now I’m not anywhere near the end, and I can’t say which characters do major or weird things in the whole manga. I totally didn’t make sense there, did I? Teehee.

P.S. KnB 230 should’ve come out I’m gonna read it now (that’s why my last paragraph is so rushed and weird)

P.P.S. Do you like the new IOS 7.0? :s I don’t and I’m not gonna update mine until absolutely necessary ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ (I’ve become obsessed with these emot

P.P.P.S. The butter cake is my second try, adapted, less sweet, more buttery, more delicious. And really took only about 1 1/4 hrs + 45 mins baking time
