Kokkoku:Moment by Moment (First Impression)

So i recently started with moment by moment and what actually caught my attention was this description

Having failed 19 job interviews in one day, Juri Yukawa’s dreams of moving out of her parents’ home are utterly dashed. Stuck living with her working mother Nobuko, NEET brother Tsubasa, laid-off father Takafumi, and single-parent sister Sanae, the only hope for this family to raise a decent adult is her little nephew Makoto. However, this struggling family’s life takes a turn for the worse when Makoto and Tsubasa are violently kidnapped by a mysterious organization and held for ransom. With only 30 minutes to deliver five million yen to the criminals, Juri’s grandfather reveals a dangerously powerful secret to her and Takafumi.

By offering blood to her grandfather’s mystical stone, the three enter the world of “Stasis,” a version of their world where time stops for everyone but the users. Having arrived at their destination, their rescue efforts go awry when they are assailed by a surprising group of people who are somehow able to move around within Stasis. While all hope seems lost, a monstrous giant known only as the Herald appears amidst the chaos, its intent and motivations as cryptic as the very nature of this timeless world.(Taken from myanimelist)

Well lets get to the impression.

Artstyle: Fairly normal and kinda fitting for the type of anime it seems to be.

Soundtracks: The OP and End soundtracks are actually really good but i don’t know for this type of anime(horror,psychological) it is not well suited, just my opinion though.

Characters: A main protagonist who is not in high school. That says a lot about this anime. The whole lot of characters that i saw are adults and are well good, but cannot comment on them more as i have just seen the first episode.

Pacing: It is a bit rushed. Like how fast the events of the description take place does not feel right, it is quite fast.( Probably because  they only had 12 episode to work with)

I will be regularly posting about this anime as i progress through it.

Kings avatar special Episode 3 discussion(Spoiler alert)

So this episode was one of the best i have seen so far. The moment when Ye Xiu came and played against the pro player and afterwards everyone realizing that the player was Ye Qiu was so epic. More awesome was when Ye Xiu left before the camera panned towards him making him anonymous once again.

Well now the Boss (owner of pc game centre) also knows Ye xiu’s real identity and well the reaction was not what i expected. But now it looks like the story is taking step forwards and now i am really excited for the Season 2.

What are your thoughts on the special Episodes?

King’s Avatar Special Ep 2 Discussion(Spoiler alert)

So in this episode we see the all star weekend progressing and more rookie challenging senior players.

The fight between the captain of Team tyranny and current user of one autumn leaf was really good.

We then see that Tang Rou questions who really Ye Xiu is. I actually would really like to see everyones mind getting blown when they realize Ye xiu is actually Ye Qiu.

Overall pretty nice episode.

King’s Avatar Special Episode 1 review

Well the first thing I noticed while watching it was the changes in the animation. Mainly the facial animation and the actual face of our Main protagonist seems a bit different. The changes in animation are well not bad but they are not a step up from the last season.

The in-game action looks good. Overall the show looks good and a fan like me would love to watch the show progressing.

Well the changes in animation are probably because of the change in the studio.

I actually don’t remember our Main protagonist looking like that. Do you?

Well that’s my initial impression of King’s avatar Season 2.

FLCL: Progressive Ep:1

So i just now watched the very first episode and here are some initial thoughts.

Well I don’t remember the first season very clearly (i know the story but not the character names and stuff).

So, my initial thoughts were, the animation feels modern and as i started watching i first felt the craziness of the first episode of FLCL was kinda missing, but later on in the episode it caught up with the same sort of craziness. So you can expect the similar kind of humor from this season too.

Story wise flcl:progressive is a sequel to the events of first FLCL. I honestly at first found the story of FLCL a bit confusing to understand and there are some things that need to be explained more i hope this season explains that stuff.

The characters look really interesting, our main character is a high school girl who is bored of her uneventful life and now her life is gonna be full of events…..i hope……

Well these were my initial thoughts on FLCL: Progressive.

Hunter X Hunter(An overview)

If you are familiar with the anime world many people consider Dragon ball, Naruto and One Piece as the holy grail of Shounen anime/ manga many forget about a gem called Hunter x Hunter. This is an anime which is respected by it’s viewers and has been liked by everyone who has watched it. But a lot of time people hesitate to start a new series which is about 150 episode long. I am here to clear your hesitation about this wonderful anime that is Hunter x Hunter.

-What is the anime about?

Hunter x Hunter is set in a world where Hunters exist to perform all manner of dangerous tasks like capturing criminals and bravely searching for lost treasures in uncharted territories. Twelve-year-old Gon Freecss is determined to become the best Hunter possible in hopes of finding his father, who was a Hunter himself and had long ago abandoned his young son. However, Gon soon realizes the path to achieving his goals is far more challenging than he could have ever imagined.

Along the way to becoming an official Hunter, Gon befriends the lively doctor-in-training Leorio, vengeful Kurapika, and rebellious ex-assassin Killua. To attain their own goals and desires, together the four of them take the Hunter Exam, notorious for its low success rate and high probability of death. Throughout their journey, Gon and his friends embark on an adventure that puts them through many hardships and struggles. They will meet a plethora of monsters, creatures, and characters—all while learning what being a Hunter truly means.

-How is it different then other shounen?

-So Hunter x Hunter on surface looks really fun and colorful anime but it is something really really worse than that.(wont tell more because i don’t wanna spoil)

-What sets this apart?

– So a lot of times we expect something to happen in a certain way, but what if something exactly different happens? This is what Hunter x Hunter is all about, you can never anticipate things.

-what do i like in the anime?

The plot development is really good, the character development is on a complete different level. The most important are the villains in the anime, Hunter x Hunter is home to some of the most ruthless and gruesome villains i have ever seen. The arc’s in the anime are really good too.

This is the reason why everyone should at least once watch Hunter x Hunter.

UN-GO(my thoughts)

So a while back i wrote about the review of the first two episode, but now as i have watched all the 11 episodes i am writing a bit more detailed review.

First few episodes literally bored me, the mystery were to simple to solve and the cases were just to boring, but as the story progresses all the episodes and the certain mystery they had, they all start making sense(not 100% though).

It is tagged as a supernatural anime but the supernatural aspect of the anime is kept to a bare minimum. I think the anime is more psychological at the end. So it is actually worth watching till the end.

The op and Ed are good but not anything special, Voice acting is decent too.

Art-style is modern and normal nothing to weird or different.

Overall i’ll say it is worth the watch….

UN-GO(Episode 1&2 review)

So i have been searching for some short crime,drama anime and came across this one.      lets read the synopsis:

In a dystopian future, detective Shinjuurou Yuuki—known by some as the “Defeated Detective”—solves mysteries throughout Tokyo. Aided by his odd associate Inga, Shinjuurou’s insight and ingenuity in cracking cases, particularly homicides, lead to numerous mysteries solved and culprits caught. However, his partner seems to have some other, more sinister intentions for the people they catch, and the truth of the assistant’s identity and motivation is shrouded in secrecy.

Well i have watched the first two episodes and found the plot and story lukewarm,the cases did not feel really tough. I don’t assume if an anime is good or not just by its few episode, so i went online and checked for some information about the anime and for my surprise the anime has an average rating of 7. Now 7 is not a really strong rating but enough for me to continue watching it. Right now i am watching this as a side-anime,so i wont be finishing it anytime soon. I went through some of the reviews and found people saying that, the show has a bad start but actually gets really good at the end.

The anime review will be up in a few days.

 

Chi No Wadachi(latest progression review)

Spoilers Ahead…

My speculation of Seiichi’s mother being a psychopath were true, as i had said in my previous post.
Now chapter 20 shows us that the mother is not mentally stable and she has an emotional  outburst and all.

Now as for her son (Sei), she feels that he was always left alone (but i don’t think thats true). She is less of yandere but more of a dotting parent (to an extreme level), well the manga showed a little possibility of incest but if that happens then she might be a yandere.

There would be some major events taking place in the upcoming chapters.
