Okay, I think I’ve gone missing for quite a while now =w= It’s really just because I kind of stopped watching anime for a while. You see, I want to read Beelzebub’s manga but it’s so long and I feel too lazy to actually get to reading it. And since I’m the sort who HAS to finish something before I start something else I haven’t even involved myself in anything related to anime until recently (AFA).
I decided not to read the manga and just start watching again. I actually already started on the Kuroko no Basuke post but since there are so many characters, it just doesn’t seem to end! Lazy writers like me just give up halfway…. So today I’m not gonna do a new post until I finish watching Baka to test. After that, I’ll watch Chuunibyo and Noucome and post all the funny Beelzebub moments (still collating them because there are just that many).
Ahem. Sorry I’ve been gone for so long. Don’t get me wrong, everyday I feel guilty and think I should update my blog. If it was not 2.18 am at night, that is. Right now, I’m playing Harvest Moon Island of Happiness (yes, on the DS, how lame could I possibly get?!) and can’t decide whether I should marry Shea or Pierre in my second save file. In my first game (from 2009) I was extremely unsuccessful even though it’s the seventh year. I haven’t even unlocked girl farmers… That’s because I didn’t know the importance of farming. I’m also at 1 heart with Shea and with ninety percent of all the villagers. I got married to Mark since he’s ‘easy’ and don’t tell him, but I gave him weeds everyday and then he fell in love with me like that… lol.
This is my second game and I’m in my third year. I’ve unlocked all the bridges by my second and I’m at red heart with Vaughn, Shea and Pierre. I’m gonna marry Vaughn now but I don’t know which of the other two I should marry once I oversave my first save file. The line they both say at red heart is just too cute, I cannot. Anyway, I’m also at 10 hearts with Wada, meaning I unlocked the tower in my third year while I haven’t in my seven year first game. Okay, I’m gonna stop confusing you now and just get on with my post! *postpones pointless rants to another day*
I’m gonna write a fanfiction too and my name is (guess it)
akashiseijuurou. Yeah, creative right? I’ve always wanted to write a Wattpad story but never got around to it. This time, I’m actually gonna write one on the anime I love to the moon, Venus, Jupiter, Mars, Saturn, all the other planets and back (I obviously learnt the solar system, like totally). If you stalk my account, you’ll find all the nice KnB fanfics. Just sayin’.
P.S. anyone else not a fan of AkaKuro? I mean besides AkaMe, every other pairing is cute (mine is PERFECT I say, PERFECT) but AkaKuro is sooo overrated. I much prefer MuraAka sibce I like to see uke Akashi :3 AkaKuro is um, nice too… But, yeah. Too much fanfics makes it a lot less fun and plus shouldn’t it be KagaKuro? Ugh. No one understands me. Just to reward no one for reading to the end of this really dumb useless post that just wasted 7 minutes of my life, here’s a sexy ass photo of MuraAka
AFA POST FOR ANOTHER DAY!!!! I STILL REGRET NOT BUYING THE NAI AND GAREKI PILLOW! I should’ve at least found out the price.. I mean if it was only $20, then ;A; I was hoping I hadn’t written it down on my shopping list but I HAD!!!! Ugh why did I listen to my friend who said it wasn’t worth it? I should’ve listened to my heart!! I’m sure it’s gonna be 3 million times more expensive online now!!! And next year Karneval is gonna be even less popular than it already is (only Odex and one small booth sold Karneval stuff). I only managed to buy 5 badges (Tsukumo, Hirato, Nai, Gareki, Yogi). I wanted to buy the ezlink card sticker but since the design was the same as the badges I didn’t. Then later on they were sold out and I slapped my dumb ass self for not buying them BEFORE they sold out. Yeah, I love buying sold out stuff before they sell out. I bought all the mini Purrball badges except for the orange striped cat (which was sold out) and the other cute ones before they were ALL sold out fufufu… Laughing at everyone else’s misfortune. The sales people laughed when I said ‘all of them except that one’. They were a set but since one was sold out I only got 4… Or was it 5? Okay, enough blabbering. I said this was for another post but there I went……
I can’t believe I’m actually getting into this whole blogging thing! Right now, I feel like Natsume XD I’m watching Death Note right now and I think it’s rather interesting. I’ve been feeling slightly bored these days since I just finished all the ‘good’ animes. I didn’t enjoy Magi at all (another time) and I think I’m suffering from the true PAWS, maybe even Post-Anime Withdrawal Depression. I’ve been feeling like there’s no point in life and that I’m just living an empty life. I can’t describe it, but it may also be because I lost my passion for all my likes. I’ve also been unable to find an interesting anime that really pulls me in. There are no longer any animes that I’ve been really wanting to watch (I’ve been wanting to try TnKK for quite a while) because I finished them all already.
Anyway, Death Note is actually seeming attractive to me because Light and I both are feeling like there’s nothing to this world. L is also pretty interesting ever since I saw that he sits strangely. Many interesting characters. Ryuk too is amusing since he likes apples so much. He doesn’t seem like an evil person either which is good ‘cuz he’s kind of scary looking. Light is a smart person too, making these mysteries extremely appealing. I’ve already said before that I’m a curious person so interesting shows really can’t be resisted. I’m sorry if this post is crazy messy because I’m watching Death Note at the same time as this, hehe.
This is kind of just a rant post since I’ve barely even started watching Death Note. Will do another post if I feel like once I’m done. Blogging is really so fun! It’s amazing to be able to talk about your own feelings towards an anime. Even if I ever feel like life has no meaning I still have a blog to update. You should really make one, reader!
So anyway, regarding DN, Ryuk is probably the most funny character. Light is way too uptight and full of ‘justice’, and he’s just a kid, what could he possibly know about becoming God? And he even tried to kill the fake L which is plain stupid since that isn’t really L. Ryuk is interested in the human world because he’s bored. He’s just there and laughing at all us human’s stupidity. He also gets creeped out by Light’s stalker, and for some reason I found that scene really funny. He was like trying to reiterate so many times that he wasn’t doing it for “Kira’s” sake, but because as a roommate, he was getting the creeps. Ryuk is very much like a human. A weird looking, invisible human. I don’t know much about L yet so I won’t say anything about him.
What I’m not happy about is that there are 37 episodes for me to watch. I’m so used to 13 episode shows that this one feels really draggy. I hope it’s as interesting as KnB or Kuroshitsuji or ZnT to keep me ‘in’.
P.S. If there are any nice animes, please recommend them to me.
P.P.S. I’ll probably delete this later on and redo it since it’s so messy. I totally suck at multitasking.
Excuse the ridiculously long title because I assure you, this post will definitely increase your anime time hehe. I’m gonna be introducing my favourite (and best) websites or apps to watch/download/read anime or manga for free. *Note: every mobile thing is for iPhone only, after all, if you have an android, you can just download straight away.
Actually, if you’re using a computer, basically any site would work. But my preferences lie on anime44. It is simple enough, has a rather extensive list of shows, and doesn’t take years to load. I can’t remember very well, but I think this one isn’t a megavideo so you aren’t limited to only 72 hours of show (which may be good when this addiction gets out of hand..). Also, other websites like gogoanime or something have a ton of ads (very indecent ones in fact) and has a black background which is really frustrating for the eyes. I used to use animecrazy (once again like 3 years ago) but it shut down. I have no idea why; it was like the best website. Anime44 also doesn’t take forever to load, but I still suggest you open up hundreds of links to let it buffer. Save yourself the frustration. Honestly, I can’t really remember since I just use my phone now. If I’m wrong, sorry~
If you’re using your handphone, I highly suggest animebox. This website is da bomb. Although it takes quite a while to load, it doesn’t do any funky things. It doesn’t require flash either (obviously or it can’t be used with phones). You can either search and just click on the link. Or you could just type in animebox.tv and search your anime title in the search box. It basically has every anime so don’t worry about that!! The format is straightforward and simple too, and very few ads. Just one at the side if I’m not wrong… However, I wouldn’t suggest you use this website with a computer because the shows take a little while to load, which is kinda annoying. There are better websites for computer. On the phone, this thing is not so bad because at least you don’t have to wait forever which happened to me on some other mobile site. The only problem is that the buffering is kinda strange. Sometimes it doesn’t load, then if you skip a section, the entire thing loads. I can’t really describe it but you get the point I hope. And you have to be on the link while the show loads. Or you’ll just have to refresh and wait again. That really sucks. So I’d rate this website 4.5/5 because everything is great except the loading and waiting and buffering time. But that’s only for mobile okay!!
Apps. (iPhone only)
Anime hd. This is probably the best free app around. There are others (which I’ll cover later), but this one ensures hd like the name says. There is a download and watch online feature, but I usually just watch online. There isn’t background downloading though and who would wanna stay on the same app doing nothing.. This app has its limitations though; limited anime titles, and you’re only allowed to watch five episodes for free. The thing is, once you finish watching five episodes, you can just delete and redownload the app teehee. This way, you get unlimited watches if you don’t mind downloading and deleting like 5 times for a 25 episode show. The app loads super well too, so don’t worry about buffering and all that. It’s like animebox, just without all the waiting time. I’d give this app a 3/5, because there aren’t that many shows. READ BELOW.
Anime world. This is another good app, but I’d only give it a 2/5. It’s not hd, is kind of hard to navigate and get used to, waiting time is quite long, hangs alot. The good thing is that it has quite alot of anime to select from. Too bad it has that 5 episode rule too. I won’t recommend this at all.
Crunchyroll. I don’t even understand why people use this crappy app. There are basically like 15 shows only, and the shows aren’t even nice. It’s ridiculous. Go download it and see for yourself.
Free video. It’s just called free video and looks like
this. I don’t know if it’s still free for a limited time or whatever, but you can download it for free. There are a lot of ads; every time you open it one will pop up, but it’s to try and persuade you to buy the premium. The free is easy enough to use, and you just need to play your video and click download. For example, if you’re gonna download something from animebox, then you just need to click the play button, wait for it to play, and once it does, a download button will pop up. Click it and you’re down!! I’d take a screenshot but at the moment I have nothing to download. There are limited downloads apparently, but I don’t know the limit ‘cuz I just delete the download once I’ve watched it. The whole thing is very easy to navigate, and you can even use it as a second browser hehe. I’d give it a 5/5 because it’s amazing, has background downloading, free, and I don’t really care about ads unless it’s some weird naked woman picture. That’s just plain disturbing. You can download ANY video you want. Serious. Oh, and downloading videos obviously mean you can watch them offline. Even if your 3G or LTE is on, it won’t use your data. I only recommend this app if you suffer from 2GB data like me. If not, you can just watch it online whenever you want. You don’t even need to download. Go have fun now!! (・ω・)ノ
Of course there are many other apps, but as I’ve already said, I’m only covering the free ones. On top of that, Singapore has limited anime apps. I heard there are others like netflix and this other one I forgot the name of, but they aren’t available in the sg store. My father has a US account but I wouldn’t want to bother him.
Manga reading apps:
Websites are obvious, so you can just go find one yourself.
Manga storm. It’s on the picture above. I like it even though you’re only allowed to save 3 mangas at a time. Some people find the limited selection of mangas a problem, but I don’t care. This app doesn’t have a download feature (which I don’t mind because downloading takes F O R E V E R anyway) but it’s super simple to use, and loads quickly. I can’t stand it when a page takes forever to load, and ends up being unviewable -__- (if that’s even a word..) I’d rate it a 4/5 because some of my favourite mangas aren’t inside. The ‘check now’ is pretty effective, and that means I get earlier updates on KnB teehee. It usually takes really long, so what I do is press check now, stay for 2 seconds, go back to home then click on it again. Done! You won’t even have to wait forever for it to check now. I don’t even know if this is a cheat or what but it works for me!
Manga meow. Picture above again. I’m not a big fan of this app and I only downloaded it because I love cats. It can download, but not background-ly so I don’t use that feature at all. The mangas take a long time to load, and the app keeps crashing! Also, it’s kind of strange at first if you’re used to manga storm, since everything is pretty much different. The good point is that it has basically every manga, so I use this app for mangas that are not in storm. It has the same 3 manga rule though, and that sucks… I have to keep deleting mangas from my favourites list.
There are many other manga apps out there, but these were like the first few options, and I’m too lazy to search so much so yeah!! Whatever suits your taste.
I forgot this important app at first!
If you’re a hardcore anime fan like all of us, I’m sure you have your favourite OSTs, openings and endings. And you probably can’t find 99% of them in iTunes. Well, I’m here to save you people in despair!
I tried a couple of other apps (that’s a lie, A LIE! I am that content with this app) and I found this one to be the best. I am not joking when I say they have virtually every song. Suoh mikoto OST? Check. Perseus by yamazaru? Check. The only thing is that sometimes the singer’s name is in Japanese so you’ll have to find out their name in Kanji. For example, truth by 嵐 (arashi). You can’t just search the english only. Oh but that’s not really a problem because the iPhone Japanese keyboard does everything. As long as you know the romanji(?) name you’ll be fine. As a side note, they have Euterpe by Egoist!! That song is pretty much fake ‘cuz Egoist doesn’t exist. (Any guilty crown fans here? I’m not…)
Oh my, I just realised I forgot to tell you all the app name! It is Free Music FM~ a blue quaver with blue background! They recently changed the format. Now, the whole thing is not preferable by me, (I hate updating now T~T) and they don’t put the lyrics on your lock screen anymore. (Not like I actually read them, I can’t read Japanese!) The language now is English, for your info. Anyway, this was ridiculously messy, and I hope you even understand this section. Go download this app now! Shoo!!
Okay, that’s all for now. Hope I helped your anime and manga frustrations! I’m not gonna do a review yet even though I really wanna T^T
*EDIT: manga storm does have a download feature.
UPDATE: Anime HD has been deleted. Sucks right? I think I was the last person to download it and when I went in everything said ‘Anime HD steals videos from Kissanime.com’. I was like Ugh stupid app and deleted it. Then I realised: Wait, does that mean the app is unusable?! So I went to the App Store and boom, gone. Anime HD has died and so has my backup anime app…
Well so me being me, I went to check out Kissanime and it’s pretty good. Okay. Another website to consider. Works well for handphone and doesn’t take long to load. Sounds better than AnimeBox eh? Well I guess that’s the truth. But since I’m loyal I’m still gonna keep animebox up there. Even though it doesn’t have baka to test. I’m actually quite sad. Anime HD was really HD.. And for a period of time animebox disappeared too. Hope that never happens again. But oh well, I might become a kissanime convert as long as it doesn’t keep stopping but not bufferig. Enough of my ramblings! Just note that Anime HD is gone and that KissAnime is another website that works well for mobile users. (It has a HD option too..)
I love Karneval. ‘Nuff said. The anime stopped so I’m reading the manga now. I’m just gonna do a quick review on the characters…
Nai. Is it even legit to be so cute? A lot of people found him annoying at first but from the start I was already fangirling over that cutie. His naivety, his small size, his hair and his huge eyes… You, get the point. I’m rushing so I can’t really remember anything I want to say about him, oops.
Gareki. Nai’s the cute one, he’s the sexy and hot one. That was a little crude, because in my opinion, he isn’t really sexy and hot, but um.. You know, I like him for him too, not just the looks. This other blogger said that Gareki’s one-shoulder and tank tops are so unmanly but hot, and I can’t help but agree. I don’t really get why Mikanagi Touya (I’m praying I spelt it correctly) gave him such clothes, but oh well. We get to see more skin anyway kekeke…
Tsukumo. Tsukumo is a lovely, sweet and charming lady. She’s probably my most favourite female character of all time. She isn’t very expressive, veryyy cool-headed and sooo beautiful. It’s no wonder Jiki and Eva are so obsessed with her. However… I sensed something between her and Hirato…
But then again, if someone did such a thing to you, wouldn’t you blush too? ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ <– yes this is my favourite (what's it called?) emoji(?) ps, sorry 'bout the huge gaps in between. I screenshotted with my iphone 5.
Yogi. When he first appeared, I thought he'd become my favourite character but Nai and Gareki already were. Teehee. Well, he's still my favourite, but ranked 3rd/4th with Tsukumo. I always thought that I had a fetish for yellow hair and purple eyes since those are my 2 favourite colours, but then I watched Tamaki (ouran) and Yogi and realised… Maybe not. I think I like red hair and yellow eyes (more on that in all my other posts). So, Yogi is really cute, but in the handsome cute type. Sparkly and everything, and Nyanperowna. It's kind of funny sometimes, like during the underwear chapter.. Hehe..
Oh, and I forgot to add, he’s like the Kise (KnB) in Karneval. Bullied, blonde hair, very capable (see Kise in the recent-er chapters) because of his Silver Yogi side, etc. Aw man, I left for a while and completely lost my train of thought…
Hirato. Popular favourite among certain fangirls but honestly I’m not a fan of glasses guys. Anyway, most of us pair him up with Akari or Tsukitachi for obvious reasons. They’re regularly together in the manga, and since Akari doesn’t like Hirato too much, there’s a certain tension between them. Ahem. I don’t ship him and Tsukumo, but I want Tsukumo to get her crush.. So um.. Personal preference it shall be.
Kichii. Annoying brat. I dislike her so much words can’t describe it. I wish she would stop bashing Yogi, it’s not like he doesn’t put in effort. Tsk.
Jiki. He’s like a perverted creep. (I’m obviously biased towards the First ship people) First, he looks at Eva when she was in a lack of clothing, then he keeps trying to get close to Tsukumo. He himself is pretty good looking; nice eyes, but his personality sucks. Kind of like Kyouya (ouran), giving my cute little Nai a hard time in the anime (forgot which episode). Well, at least he helped Nai somewhat in the last episode of the anime.
Tsukitachi. Nothing to say, except that he reminds me of an older, loosened up (perhaps without the win-streak?) version of Akashi (KnB). If you’re a KnB fan, you’ll understand.
Akari. I don’t know… He’s so harsh sometimes. But that cute bunny he looks after? So cute!!! Almost as cute as the niji!
Karoku. He’s so beautiful. He reminds me of the protagonist in La Corda D’oro. Tsu-something I think. Can’t remember. That show stopped halfway, I’m so mad!! But at that time (a few years ago), I didn’t believe in manga continuing the anime so maybe I’ll check it out soon. His lovely blue hair and intense blue eyes. Won’t say I’m that big a fan of his, but he ranks 5th in my list. And the way he keeps saying ‘Nai’ is really I don’t know, mesmerising? He practically only said that the whole anime. (Well, the actual Karoku, that is…) I also adore the way he protects and dare I say it, loves Nai. It’s so wonderful. No need for yaoi *sighs in happiness* Thank goodness his twin/brother is the evil one and not he himself. I’d feel so heartbroken if he really was the antagonist.
Erisyuka. Everyone hates her and so do I. How dare she come in between Karoku and Nai!! And her ‘love’ is so ridiculous and stupid. Hmph.
So since I’m reading the manga, I wait for it to update. Recently, it has updated like everyday, so I felt slightly suspicious. And the most recent chapter said the anime would start airing in April!! I can’t believe it!! I haven’t been reading the actual updates, but only the scans which come out such a long time later!! It’s quite difficult to describe, but I’m so horrified. I wanna learn Japanese so I can 1) watch anime without subtitles 2) be able to read the raws. That means earlier updates!! Yey! But, I think I’ll have to read for a long long time, since the translated ones are like coming out only so long later… ( T_T) I hope at least someone understands this part of my post… /sobs/
P.S. My phone is filled with pictures of anime. Ever since I fell in love with Akashi.. Now there are like 5 photos of my life to 200 photos of anime. You know.
P.P.S. I’m gonna sew these keychains. Can someone please teach me how to sew flat keychains…
I’m so content with the ending! Do you know how sad I would be if only Tamaki got Haruhi?! I think I really love this manga!! At least Hikaru and Kaoru get to be with her too~ And Mori and Hani senpais too!!! Wheeee~ *fangirl side unleashed*
So happy they didn’t split up and ALL went abroad together!!! Hatori Bisco you rock!!!! (And you secretly support Hikaru x Haruhi right? Kekeke…)
P.S. Oh man suffering from PAWS (post anime withdrawal syndrome) plus I can’t start a new one thanks to exams!! /cries/
I accidentally deleted the original -__- so this one will be even shorter. Don’t worry, I do this alot, especially when I write a huge bunch of stuff.
So I’m gonna introduce myself a little, but only a little because I wanna stay as anonymous as possible. I’m turning 14 this year, Singaporean, has a soft spot for cats, in love with Akashi, started anime at some time around 8, ended at at around 11, started in June 2013 again. I like to bake too, so don’t mind me if I post a recipe every now and then. You wont regret it after trying them out 🙂 Now, to keep things anime related, and not so sad if I delete the whole thing again,
My favourite animes right now are Kuroko no Basket (obviously), Karneval, K project, Blood lad, Ouran highschool host club, Ao no exorcist, Zetsuen no Tempest and not in order. I will leave the explanation(s) for their blog posts. Kind of frustrated right now you know. Deleting like 6 full 150 word paragraphs isn’t funny.
I use my phone to blog, so excuse the poor paragraphing, my technoobity, and the horrible placement of pictures. I promise you won’t be disappointed. I will completely live up to reputation as a always ruining the pictures section (and deleting my entire post in the process!) I can’t remember anything else I wrote.
Also, I won’t do the episode by episode review unless its a continuing anime or an anime I just started watching. But for example, Blood lad, that has 10(?) episodes so far, I’ll just start from the next one.
