Tide-Line Blue is an original anime.
Bronze

This wasn’t  a bad anime per say. It just suffered from a few flaws. The world is falling apart and everyone is fighting each other for power. Pretty standard and guaranteed what would happen.

The anime is shown through about half a dozen points of views which made it hard to connect to any one side. The person we are most supposed to care about is a boy called Keel. Keel who was forced from his home by his twin brother and got separated from him. Teen, the twin, grew up on one side of the war and is mature and dependable. Keel was adopted by the leader of the other side and brought up with a silver spoon and doesn’t know how to anything but cheat and lie. Keel is also in love with a girl who has a baby at the beginning of the story.

The twins relationship is a strange one, partly because for most of the show. Keel hates Teen and because he’s now stuck with the people who brought Teen up, is constantly compared to him. I’m not sure about Teen’s feelings on Keel, except he makes it so Keel and Isla are under his father’s protection so I guess he has some feelings for him. When they finally reunite, they do start to get along, though. By the end of the show, they are friends. Not without a few fights, however.

As the story progresses I grew more interested but it was a very close start. The ending was good for the series. Seriously, though, Keel has no life skills. It’s amazing it lives through the show.

Gun x Sword is an original anime written by Hideyuki Kurata.

Silver – Not dropped but unfinished due to technical difficulties.

The first episode was good. Interesting idea and concept, if not a little common with animation considerably more modern than some of the other anime released at this time. In some ways, it’s a little sad that some animes are of a similar quality to this now. Even this was ahead of the time or some studios are not putting their money into this anymore.gun-x-sword

In some ways, it’s a little sad that some animes are of a similar quality to this now. Even this was ahead of the time or some studios are not putting their money into this anymore. The effects in this are brilliant, as is the movement of the characters. They are fluid and the fight scenes are beautiful.

I have never watched cowboy bebop (which from the theme and genres I’d guess this anime was trying to be a predecessor from) but this anime reminded me of Yatterman and World Destruction Society at some points. The air of a world which is more technically advanced but still as chaotic and unruly as when it wasn’t. Oh and there is some idoit who is trying to change the world into their own world view.

Our group of mismatched heroes in this one are your a-typical mix of people who don’t quite fit in with the real world. Van’s an airhead who likes putting all the condiments he can on to a cheap dish and forgets his friends names easy, but he does have a heart. Wendy is more your typical serious anime girl and Carum is the knowledgeable wanderer in this scenario. Plus Joshua for comic relief and Pricilla to brighten up the show.

That all being said. There were occasions I was bored with the anime. It made me care for the characters but I had to take breaks regularly. It’s a bit heavy to just blast through all at once. I was getting into the arc again when… the site I was using apparently began having problems. For some reason, I could only see the first 5 mins of the episodes of Gun X Sword so unfortunately, I could not finish the series. Hopefully, when I have time in the future I will return to it.

Weiß Kreuz Review

Weiß Kreuz is a light novel adaptation written by Kenichi Kanemaki and illustrated by Kyoko Tsuchiya.

So why am I watching this when I have the weekly challenge? Simple, Ufotable seems to have several series which are sequels of previously made animes. So I started with this.

The animation is terrible, but has a very realistic tint to it. This is an anime created in the 90s after all. The movements are stilted. The voice acting also so. The lines blurry even in the highest definition I could find. But like all 90s animes, you don’t watch them now for their animation quality. You watch them for their story. I do think anyone who tries to compare this with animation now is silly. It was not good bad then, its terrible now. Simple. knight 3

Also this is rated 13+. I think it says a lot about how we have progressed that this was only rated a 13. Now it would likely be 17+. With themes involving prostitutes, life or death games, guns, violence and much much more this anime is not for children. At least when you compare it to Magi which was given a 15 in England, certainly this anime would have been given higher!

This is a show about assassins trying to kill their targets who are usually up to no good. The first few episodes introduce us to this characters, explaining their back stories and how they ended up with the group. From careers ruins to lost lovers. The stories are sad and only a touch clique. Ultimately this anime is pretty standard in its premise. Its one we have seen a thousand times and one we are likely to see a thousand times again. This show is also meant to be a bishounen show. Full of handsome men and beautiful woman. Except the the bad animation ruins that.

knight 2The story itself is passable. Nothing new, more particularly exciting but there. See Bad guy. Stop bad guy. Met cute girl in process. Girl survival rate 50/50 in process. Because we haven’t seen this formula a couple hundred times and somehow I doubt it was original back in the 90s either. One of the detectives turns out to be related to the bad guys. One of others has a sister in a coma. Its all very clique. So Bronze. Its not something I would say people need to particularly go back and see but its not a bad ride.

WataMote Review

WataMote is a manga adaptation written by Nico Tanigawa.

Well i was in the mood for something different and something different was what I got. This anime is a hard one to rate. It is genuinely quite hard to tell whether it is a comedy with some very dark humour, or a study of how social anxiety can isolate and paralyse someone. I’m putting it is as silver because either way, this is a good anime. Just one which has some slightly scary concepts for people to get around. There were a lot of comments about watching it the hope that the main leads life would improve. Waiting for that magical anime moment when someone finally thinks to befriend her. Spoiler, but that never quite happens. Or does it?WataMote-Episode-3-English-Dubbed
Meet our lead. Female. Tomoko Kuroki. In her first year of high school and a massive failure at life. Well, not, she does suffers from some problems which make it very hard for her to communicate with the people around her. She’s shy, awkward and doesn’t really take care of herself which doesn’t really help the situation. She has about very few people in the world who acknowledge her existence. Her mother, who really needs to take this girl aside and give her a talk on how the world works!

My own mother had a few conversations with me around her age about life and the importance of fitting it. But I had friends. She doesn’t. Ignoring her one friend from middle school. Yuu having graduated from sixth grade syndrome and grown up. On her way to becoming a woman. Kuroki on the other hand… not so much. I do wonder if she is based on a actual person or on the authors own experiences. Either way, I feel sorry for them. There is nothing worse than wanting friends but being unable to fit in enough to make them.
watamote5-1The person Kuroko is closest to is quite honestly her brother. She unlike her, has friends and it considerably more normal than his sister. Though both had black bags under their eyes. Skin condition maybe? They are both gamers though. Their relationship is not a warm, loving one. But a fighting siblings one. He puts up with her basically, but they are both mean to each other. I think he does get she is lonely though.

The situations themselves can be funny but this anime more shows how life is for some people. The world can be scary place, so it is that surprising so many people love anime and games where they can be them? It is also refreshing to see the main character as a girl. The stereotype for Hikikomoris and other social problems are males, but girls have just as many problems. If not more with our society insists they behave.

Tasogare Otome x Amnesia is a manga adaptation written by Maybe.

This is anime is a strong silver to me. It is a lovely story with a strong storyline which doesn’t really faulter. The characters are not as strong but they were entertaining enough to keep me focused on the screen. Something which can be hard in some animes when the characters are weak/boring. There are no episodes which feel like fillers or out of place. The ecchi moments, while there are not completely in your face and they do a good job of tying up loose ends. Tasogare 2So the plot? Well. Yuuko is a ghost. A very famous ghost at a private school. The private school is a unique place, having been built and expanded to the point where the school is a maze of classrooms and corridors. Rooms which have been reassigned to storage, and corridors which don’t actually  lead anywhere. Basically the perfect place for supernatural stories to take place.

Yuuko is trapped in this large school and basically creates ghost story’s because she gets bored and does things which scare people who can’t see her. Like play the piano in the music room etc. She’s not intentionally trying to scare people but the ghost stories do me she can manifest in scary forms due to their believes.  Which i quite like the idea of. Its not necessarily her being evil, because she is not, but the fear which the school builds up due to her presence which makes her seem like a monster to a lot of the student body. Thing is though, she doesn’t remember her past or how she died.Tasogare 1

Enter Niiya. A freshman who for some reason can see Yuuko. Niiya then agrees to help her investigate the 7 mystery’s around her and her past. Along with two other girls who join the club. One for fun, Okonogi, and the other because she too can see Yuuko and doesn’t trust her, Kanoe.

I like how they introduced the characters, I thought it was a very unique and fun way to met them. We met Okonogi first. Okonogi can’t actually see Yuuko but believes she exists. She joins the club after they ‘save’ her from a ghost she summonsed (completely made up by Yuuko being bored). She’s the one who finds the ghost stories from them to investigate and of course has a massive crush on Niiya. She’s gullible, silly and a bit oblivious. The series opens up to her talking to herself in the club room with Yuuko trying to haunt her and failing as Okonogi takes no notice of it. Its brilliant in so many ways.
Tas
Do I like her? Most of the time.She’s got determination, I’ll give her that. Fighting, literally occasionally with a love rival she can not see. Because of this she often inadvertently gets in the way of Yuuko and Niiya having dates etc. She is spunky but her character doesn’t really play much role other than to be a more active love rival. She has little to no developments, not that the others have much but it always pushes a anime down in my opinion if they do not take proper care of their characters.

She has more personalty than the rest of them. Ignoring Yuuko. Niiya is your typical shounen boy. Loyal, whole hearted and a little oblivious to the fact most of the girls around him have crushes on them. Kanoe plays the part of serious but easily embarrassed love rival. She also looks a lot like Yuuko for a very good reason in my books. But in all honesty the characters were not very good or special in the anime. The animation is also pretty standard.

What makes this anime entertaining is the story, which I’m not going to give too many spoilers away for. Simply to say, its not quite only Yuuko haunting the school and the reason why is very clever to me. I love ghost stories so this one really ran up my alley.

My one beef was with the ending. I really liked how they were setting it up. Everything had been resolved and revealed. They had been on a date. It was all sad and than… Call me silly but I would have preferred the sad ending indicated by what they were setting up. Its a ghost story! Also everything had been sorted so it was a good end. So why did they feel the need to force a happy one? So many issues with having the ending this way. You can’t even say ‘to lead on to a second season’. A second season doing what? They achieved all their objectives!

So Silver. Good story and tastefully done. Bad characters and slightly disappointing ending due to genre.

Sankarea is a manga adaptation originally written by Mitsuru Hattori.

Put until the last two episodes, I was going to put this as silver maybe even a gold if the ending matching up the the beginning, but the ending spoiled this anime to me. Basically the ending was weak. It was not bad romance because just the anticlimactic-ness of it all. If I’m honest, the fact we had two random episodes about minor characters instead of the main plot line was already counting against it. While one explained a bit of the emotions of the one of the main-ish character, the other was just plain filler. As was the last episode. Nothing to the plot, other than an excuse to have fireworks so the main characters could hopefully could reveal their feeling for each other. And fail. As the anime trope goes. Though the final bit was certainly not a normal trope.

This anime is different. The premise being familiar but new in anime form. A human boy falls in love with a zombie girl. Except it more, he falls in love with a girl who then becomes a zombie. What I liked about this anime was that it had a strong beginning. The characters were well introduced, as was the story. A boy obsessed with zombies is trying to work out how to resurrect his dead pet when a beautiful girl stumbles on him. A girl with a dark family life. Who he then promises that if she ever becomes a zombie, he’ll look after her. Not for one moment thinking it will actually happen.

Sankarea 01

Aka, her father is obsessed with her. Beyond unhealthy levels. Much to her mothers unhappiness. We know at the end of the first episode this girl is destined to return to him as a zombie but it is a few episodes before that occurs. Instead we watch as her father tries to control her while she sneaks out to met with him. When she finally dies, we watch something as she arises from the dead. Not that it stops her fathers obsession at all. hadena-sankarea-03-10bit720p72e36eea-mkv_snapshot_21-58_2012-06-24_13-33-27

I did like the symbolism in this anime. In Japan there is a strong connection between hydrangeas and death. Beautfiul flowers which have a dark meaning in Japanese culture. That they could bring someone back to life was a cool idea. The idea to make it so they could preserve zombies and let them life longer before turning feral was ok. It makes sense, if they are the key ingredient that a supply of them is needed to remain alive but it seemed to be missing something. Not that the story would have been better if Rea had been fighting the desire to eat flesh.sankarea-06-40

The thing which really disappointed me about this anime was the ending with the father. This guy is a real sicko. Claiming to be protecting his daughter’s purity. They go though this whole build up of him kidnapping them both and dramatic revelations. And then nothing. Barely a fight, and then he just accepts what they want. This is a guy who paid for people to follow and kidnap his daughter and her friend and he just… lets her stay with him? I don’t know what I expected but something a bit more dramatic/interesting than that!

If someone was the ask me about this anime I’d properly tell them to give it a go. But I’m not likely to recommend it of the tip of my head. It had a really interesting premise and a good if not twisted story built around it but while it passed barely on the romance side, the other aspects failed to satisfy when could have been. This anime could have been so good. But it failed to deliver. So Bronze

Binbougami Ga! is a manga adaptation originally written by Yoshiaki Sukeno.

So this anime is tagged as Parody, though I’m not really sure what it is a parody of. There are a lot of really extreme characters. There are also a lot of references to other animes which are hilarious. A lot to dragonball, to many to others as well, including death note, which is shown below because it was brilliantly done. This anime is happy to make jokes out of itself. Binbou Gami Ga 1A basic summary of this anime is the fri-enemy-ship between a girl who has too much fortune and is a bit of a bitch, and a god of misfortune who has been sent to fix the imbalance. Ichiko is a girl blessed with having too much fortune. To many she seems untouchable and an angel. In reality she’s a arrogant bitch who loves getting her own way and doesn’t really care about other people. Though I do love her, I call her a bitch affectionately in this one. I love animes about girls who are not frail and this anime is it. All three of the female leads are not afraid to throw a punch or say something bluntly.

Ichiko had a bad childhood, a rich heiress whose parents had no time for her and her only real carer was her butler. This with the fact a lot of her friends used her as a child meant she struggles to make friends and only really uses people. So when Momoji crashes into her life, things being to get interesting.

Binbou Gami Ga 4

Momoji is a lazy god of misfortune. Not death. Misfortune. Her job to take the masses of fortune which Ichiko has a redistribute it to people who need it. Except who would want to go near that big ass needle? Not Ichiko, she avoids Momoji’s attempted to steal her fortune easily, occasionally letting it happen to safe people. During the rare moments when she is feeling sympathetic to other people. Not that she ever admits it. Ichiko and Momoji’s relationship is a strange one. They are pretty much best friends. Kind of. They insult each other and beat each other up but their is definitely a fondness there. A fondness between two bitches but it exists. Something which only grows as a third girl is added. The tomboy Rindou. Who was brought up pretty much as a boy by her father.Binbou Gami Ga 2

Momoji’s arrival means that Ichiko has to deal with a lot of madness which comes with her including a perverted black monk, and a m-type inugami. Plus a new friend at show shows up.Theses guys are only really in the show for comedy relieve but their appearances are well done and often the only real ecchi type scenes in the show. Despite the fansercive heavy opening and closing. Along with two classmates with their own problems, we watch as the two girls cause choas and try to defeat each other. While watching Ichiko grow slightly into a more well rounded person. She still has a sharp tongue but she slowly begins to understand other people due to accidents with Momoji’s plans.

I found this series awesome and I fully recommend it to anyone who like comedy programs! Gold.

Hataraku Maou Sama is a light novel adaptation written by Satoshi Wagahara.

I really enjoyed this anime. The art is pretty and the magic well animated. The character designs aren’t that unique or original and pretty much the standard model for a light novel adaptation. Which is a shame, because the story to this anime is really top notch. Sounds clique, is clique, works brilliantly. I definitely recommend this anime. Its hilarious and I love all the characters. All of them, including the minor characters.

We start our story in a magical world where demons are invading. The hero, and half angel, Emilia fights against Satan in order to save the world. Satan and his top general,  end up falling into a magic portal and sent to earth. It becomes clear pretty quickly that magic doesn’t work as well in Tokyo, and the two of them find a place to live and part time jobs before trying to find out more about the world they are in. Satan ends up working at a fictional version of McDonalds (McRonalds) and quickly becomes shift manager as he is very dedicated to his job. Much to the surprise of Emilia,now Yusa, who followed him only to suffer a similar fate of losing her magic and now works at a call centre. Hatagaya Maou San 4This series is fantastic. One of the main issues is that Satan isn’t really very evil. He’s actually quite caring and kind, and often uses the powers in gains from fear to help people or repair the damage done in battles. He’s work working, dedicated and a good friend. Which confuses the hell out of Emilia who has been taught he is evil and will use every excuse to cause pain and suffering. Heck even in their first meeting in the human world (Satan’s demon form is different due to the loss in magic), he gives her an umbrella because of the rain. They strike up a strange friendship, which revolves around her stalking him to make sure he stays good and him being kind to her. And yes they fall in love. But as I stated, this anime is very clique and it works.

Hatagaya Maou San 2

>What I also love about this series is that the big boobed girl, in this case Satan’s work colleague who has a massive crush, isn’t just there for ecchi purposes or fan service. She is an actual part of the story, either as a watcher to the events or as a damsel in distress. But she has a part to play and not the one her character type is normally given. All the characters are well portrayed in this and well developed. We even have Lucifer as a Hikikomori! Yes, i know technically Satan and Lucifer are the same according to Christian lore, but hey, its an anime. You have to take things with a pinch of salt.

Another thing to note is that the ‘church’ in this anime is corrupt and slightly in the grey as to how good or bad it is. There are signs of both as some of the higher ups are very corrupt. It would be interesting for a second season to learn about the world they came from and just how much of Satan’s reputation is the church covering things up. I may invest in the light novels if they have been translated into English. Or maybe in Japanese if I am brave enough.

I give this anime a gold. Maybe a little high for what its worth but personally I really enjoyed this.

Ano Natsu de Matteru Review

Ano Natsu de Matteru (Waiting in the Summer)59405l

Completed 2015

Ano Natsu de Matteru is an original anime series written by Yosuke Kuroda, with original character design by Taraku Uon.

In summary, a typical anime about the summer in high school, complete with trip to Okinawa and four triangles. With the twist of one of them is an alien and the fact they are decide to make a film over the summer.

Ano Natsu 1

This anime has a similar feeling to it as Anohana. Except not as good. admittedly though, Anohana is a tough one to beat though in this genre. Ano Natsu de Matteru is a enjoyable if typical drama. The male lead, Kaito is a typical lead with very little personality and his main trait being that he loves of filmmaking. He falls in love with a new student at his school. Ichika, an alien who is searching for a place in her memories and ends up living at his house. As you know, so many animes work. Kaito doesn’t quite live alone but to clear that end up his sister goes on a work trip for the summer to Boliva of all places so its just the two of them. And his friends when they come barging round.

Ano Natsu 3

I’m not going to lie, I spent most of this anime not really liking Ichika. She’s very bland. With even less to say about her than the male lead. Apart from the fact she goes beyond in love with him and almost to obsessive early one. Following him whenever she sees him with other people. Though she doesn’t seem to quite realise it at first. I find her tiresome and I’m not sure how much she actually adds to the story ignoring being an alien. Also I found my self taking Kanna’s side in the fight for Kaito’s heart. Ichiro just appears out of nowhere and steals it without giving Kanna a chance. But I guess that life. If it hadn’t been a alien, it would have been something else I think sadly.

Honestly the amount of time spend on the characters is enough. They are a pretty pathetic lot really. Massive love rectangle between the lot of them, with an added two girls for the okinawa episodes. I quite like the fact none of them end up with who they want though. More realistic that way. The character I wished we had learned more about was Remon/Lemon, though I realise this anime was the wrong genre for that.

Ano Natsu 2

Lemon is a young looking girl who is actually much older than she appears, though her actual age is never specified. She is introduced as Ichika’s classmate who for unknown reasons wears a different uniform to the rest of the school. It quickly becomes apparent she knows far more than she lets on. It is discovered eventually she works for the men in black but its an sideline. She is mostly in charge of filming the events which are going on. She is the most interesting one to me and I wish we had learnt more about her. Like why she was there in the first place? Does she spend every summer at that school or what?

As far as the other aspects of this anime goes, the action is so random and very clique in its reasoning. It does spice up the anime though. Otherwise its just a lot of tears as everyone is in love with someone who is in love with someone else. Part from the main pair. With some summer cheer as they have fun occasionally.

I give this anime a bronze. It was enjoyable but nothing special nor unique and I spent much of it disliking the main characters which always knocks a show down a few pegs.

Beelzebub Review

Aired: Jan, 2011 to Mar, 2012

Beelzebub is a manga adaptation written by Ryuuhei Tamura.

If pikachu was a naked demon baby… and Ash was a delinquent… Ok no, this anime isn’t anything like pokemon but Beelzebub does love to electric shock Oga as much as Pikachu does Ash at the beginning. This anime is a brilliant its just a shame it ruined itself by having so many fillers and rushing the ending. Honestly, I have no idea what happened! We had like 10 episodes of just filler material and then poof, a finale in like 3 episodes which could have been spread over those 10 episodes and made considerably better. Why? Did the manga run out? Did the author not tell you the plan? Did you think you would be getting a second season and then discover it wasn’t happening anymore? What happened?

Beelzebub 01

Beelzebub is the tale of a high school delinquent who though certain events ends up raising the son of the devil in order to destroy humanity. Oga is no normal delinquent though, he is a delinquent at the worst school in Japan! where they are 120% delinquents and also extremely dumb. Due to his evil nature, Beelzebub decides he likes Oga and makes a bond with him. The side effect of the bond being that Oga can never be more than 15 metres away from him without getting an electric shock. Also if Beezlebub cries or gets upsets, he electrifies everyone in a certain radius. The bonus thing being that he can use Beelzebub’s power from time to time to increase his own attacks.

Beelzebub 03Oga is your typical delinquent. Not too bright and uses his fists before his brains. The first half of the series is dedicated to Oga defeating every delinquent in his school in order to find someone stronger than himself. Not to mention having to deal with all the problems which come with raising a demon child with powers who likes to cause chaos. Seriously if Beelzebub gets bored, bad things start happening.Beelzebub 02

Luckily for Oga, help is at hand for all the Beezlebub related problems. Notably from Beezlebubs demon maid, Helda. A fierce demon who has no qualms with beating up Oga or his best friend if they aren’t doing their jobs properly. She is also fiercely devoted to raising Beezlebub in the correct demon manner. Helda is a fantastic character, if not a little dense from time to time. But considering what she has to work with, its not surprising. Oga is frustrating to say the least.

Beelzebub 05This anime possibly by favourite fix for lack of plot ever! So once Oga has defeated everyone in the school and is known as Ishiyama’s strongest, what next? Well Oga in the last fight destroys the school. In order to combat this all the students get divided into groups and have to go to other schools. Oga and his best friends end up at St Ishiyama Academy, an elite school where they are confined to a special class for the Ishiyama students. Which just so happens to have the people they defeated in it. After that the plot is mostly don’t get expelled and to defeat the demons who are trying to kill them so Beezlebub’s brother can destroy humanity first. Lord En is cute but his servants are annoying.

maxresdefault

So I give this anime a silver. Its outstanding and has a lot of laughs in it. The characters are brilliant and this anime doesn’t bother trying to give them deep background stories. They are just delinquents. A little extreme and very crazy delinquents, but delinquents none the less. This animes takes the cliques and runs with them.
