Every PS4 owner should play Persona 5(No spoilers)

I have been away from the anime scene again but now for a good reason. I was at the end part of persona 5. It takes a lot of time and every hour i spent playing it was worth it.

I know this is not about an anime but still i would like to discuss my opinion on it.

So this Jrpg game and my very first jrpg game that I actually completed. The thing is that i never really liked the world setting for other Jrpg games but Persona 5 has the world setting which i really liked.

Persona 5 takes place in present time Tokyo, so i felt like i could relate to stuff happening. Our Main protagonist is an high school student which is again something i can kinda relate to.

This is a game so you would actually have to play through it. Depending on the way you play it you can complete it in minimum 60 hours(skipping cut scenes and stuff) ot like me who spent 85+ hours(watched cut scenes and things but didn’t max all stats). If you are a hardcore Jrpg fan then you will easily take 130+ hours to complete it.

Those 85 hours that i played through the game felt full filling. The story always manages to keep you on the edge of your seat. The game also manages to convey emotions in a pretty good way.( If the in-game character are frustrated so am i).

There were absolutely no times when i felt really bored, the game has really good pacing. It manages to keep the players entertained.

The thing i felt that makes it standout from the other Jrpg thag i have played (somewhat) is that Persona 5 has pretty different art-style then other Jrpg i have tried and it has pretty amazing Sound track. This i feel helps in making the player more immersed in the gameplay.

Also this game focuses more on the friendship. It is a key element of the game.

The combat is turn based and there are a lot of puzzles in the game like many other Jrpg games.

There are some flaws in the game too but they cannot be just told, these are something that you just feel while playing the game. Some of the flaws that i felt the game had, would probably not even be flaws for others. Any flaws that infelt were really minor and quickly forgotten. One thing i know is that it takes almost 5 hours to get going. Like the introduction and stuff will take around 5-7 hours but be patient and you will be fine.

I just feel that anyone who owns a PS4 or PS3 should play this game. It is really amazing.

Tsukumogami kashimasu Episode 1 Review

This an anime takes place in the old era. It is about a shop which rent’s out some objects which can be ornaments or charms etc.

When an owner of a certain object cherishes the object very much then the objects soul takes a materialized form which is known as Tsukumogami.

Tsukumogami can be seen but they don’t respond to humans, only to other Tsukumogami.

This anime actually is about solving mystery using the Tsukumogami. Which i find interesting. It is supposedly an episodic anime,solving one mystery at a time. I guess the shop is also a part-time detective agency of sorts.

The animation style looks pretty good. I also like how the narrator explains certain objects from the past by comparing it to its present counterpart.

I also think that they will show the back story of each of the Tsukumogami in the shop, which would be interesting to see.

I liked the anime, it is something new and a bit different than the usual.

Aguu: Tensai Ningyou Episode 2 impression (spoilers)

In this Episode we see Ai talking to Machi about her Aguu. Then Machi in turn tries to bribe Ai by giving her one of the Aguu that she has.

For doing this Machi takes Ai to the Aguu Market. There we meet the owner/tailor “Sherlock” who apparently sews Aguu to people for a deposit.

At first Ai agrees to get an Aguu sewed to her but later on realizes that it is the wrong thing to do. So she uses the Talisman given by the grampa on Machi but is later cornered by Sherlock the tailor. Then gramps and the annoying brat come in to save Ai. It is also revealed that Gramps and the brat have special powers which they use to save Ai and beat Sherlock.

It is also revealed that there is a huge demand for Aguu and there are a lot of markets all around the world. Which suggests that there is a huge world surrounding Aguu which is unknown to most common people.Aguu seems to have a very interesting environment which i hope is explored more in the later episodes.

Banana Fish Episode 3 impression (spoilers)

So we see Ash has been imprisoned and Max has been asked to take care of Ash.

Max Lobo was in the military with Ash’s older brother and was the one who shot the brother. Ash finds out about it and is furious.

Later we see Eiji has come to visit Ash and Ash slips a capsule which has a secret note in it to Eiji. This note is about how the Drug that he had asked the doctor to analyze was really dangerous and he should hide it.

We also find out that Banana fish is actually a person as per Max. Anyways we don’t know for sure yet but as the story moves forward i hope we will soon find out about this unique name.

Angolmois: Genkō Kassen-ki Episode 2 Impression(spoilers)

The second episode was very interesting, it had quite a lot of action in it and we were introduced to variety of new characters.

In this episode we saw the Mongol actually attack Tsushima island. The king of the island and the his army at first is able to defend against them also were able to push them back. But all of this was to lure the king and the army into a trap where all most all of the army was annihilated including the king.

Now it is in the hands of Kuchii Jinzaburō and the other exiles to defend the island from Mongol for seven days till reinforcement arrives.

The way the king charged into the battle with optimism was exciting but the outcome was pretty obvious. The army had just 300 men(not spartans though) and the enemy had over a 1000.

Honestly it was a tragic end to once a great king and his army.

This episode really hyped my up for the third one.

Kyoto Teramachi Sanjou no Holmes Episode 2 Impression (no spoilers)

The second episode actually showed us some of the ability of Kiyotaka as he solves a case with ease.

This case as such was not a hard one. But the good thing is that from now onwards we will get to see much more of crime solving.

Well i really hope there are much serious type of cases in the future. The case we saw this episode has been used a quite a lot. I already knew who the real culprit was even before they revealed it. I feel that the cases should be more complicated and challenging. Nonetheless a decent episode

Aguu Tensai Ningyou Epsiode 1 Impression

I have been low-key excited for this anime after having read the synopsis.

So Aguu is kinda like a guardian spirit which genius people are born with. The Not so successful people apparently realized the existence of this guardian spirit and used some wicked methods to make actual genius people into an guardian Spirit, so making them into an Aguu(cursed doll). They can give this Aguu to anyone who desires it.The organization that does it is still a secret.

The main protagonist is Ai who has a odd habit of doing splits randomly. She is a ballet dancer. Then there is her friend Machi who is also a Ballet dancer. Other characters include an old man and an arrogant brat with bushy eyebrows.

The animation style looks good. I am not really digging the opening soundtrack but the ending soundtrack is pretty good.

This anime has a pretty serious tone, that’s what i can say after watching the first episode.

The first episode was interesting and i am looking forward to the next episode.

Banana Fish Episode 2 impression(spoilers)

I am really impressed with the progression of the plot, it is quite well paced. The first episode did a good job of introducing the character and the outline of the plot.

The second episode was filled with action. We saw Eiji do a pole vault, straight up gunfights and Chase scene’s etc.

Skippers death was quite sudden and i wasn’t really expecting it and the other thing that came out of nowhere was Ash going to Jail. This show’s how much influence the Mafia has on people.

I honestly enjoyed the second episode. Can’t wait for the third now.

Grand Blue Review(Anime)

SO Grand Blue finally aired and one thing i can say is that the animation-style is pretty good but for some reason Iori looks kinda stiff(expression wise) and different from manga. Also i appreciate that they have not censored the butts.

Facial expressions: SO the facial expression are very important in Grand blue and i think they have managed to get it right but they have not nailed it. It still look kinda out of place sometime or forced. There also times when they have nailed it but these moments are quite rare.

Other characters don’t look different than the manga so that’s good.

From what i saw in the first episode i am not disappointed. Sometimes the comedy felt like it was being forced unlike in the manga. I am being a bit more critical of the anime because i love the manga and there are somethings which the anime is not getting right, it is not something that can be just pointed out. These flaws are minor but they are creating a difference in the enjoyment factor for me. The first episode was based on 1st and 2nd chapters of the manga and i enjoyed the episode but not as much as i enjoyed reading those two chapters.( I have reread the chapters at least 5 times).

The anime adaption is really good and i will continue watching it. Honestly it is much better than i had expected it to be. The Manga is on just another level though.

Angolmois: Genkō Kassen-ki Episode 1 Review

This anime is based on real historic events. I really find that interesting, cause this probably my first historic anime which has more focus on a war that had happened.

Let’s head to the review-

So this anime has quite the art-style suited for it’s historic look. It is quite a violent anime it is trying to depict the horror’s of war so that seems fitting.

So the story revolves around some people who were exiled for reasons unknown are forced to fight against the enemy. Our main protagonist is one of the person exiled, he was actually a general in a kingdom but did something which caused him to get exiled. I think that the other exiled members will also play a key role in the anime.

Now for the characters we have our main protagonist who is a pretty confident kind of person and is strong. He is the type of person who has been through wars,so he has experience with the horror’s of war,he is also a samurai. Then we have a princess and whole bunch of other people who were exiled but we are not properly introduced to them. The other exiled people actually look cool,they might also have some different perks.

This feels like the more serious type of anime and now i am really interested in this one. Now just gotta wait for the 2nd episode.
