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.

My Favorite Manga!

We all have a manga that is dear to us, it does not matter if it is a popular manga or not, it does not even matter if other people think that it is a bad manga but we just love it.

Mine is: “Nana to Kaoru”

ea4a8586470312f068d5e925cdf2284e496a64af_hq

Synopsis(Normally i would copy it but i am gonna explain this myself):

Kaoru is a boy who has an S&M Fetish, he has always wanted to have an S&M relation with his neighbor “Nana”. Kaoru is a normal boy while Nana is a Popular Student, they were good friends as kids but now they have drifted apart. Kaoru is not that good at studying, so one day his mother takes away his S&M toys and gives it to Nana for safekeeping .(I don’t think the mother knows what the toys were). In the bag was a leather vest which Nana tries on and gets locked in(these s&m clothes apparently have locks), now Kaoru is the one who has the key. So one thing leads to another and then Nana realises that the S&M works as a method of relaxation for her(she is stressed out because of various reasons).The two of them then start getting involved in more S&M stuff.

Review:

First of all these is an ecchi manga. Secondly this is one good manga.                                        This Manga shows us that there is a different side of S&M. The manga is filled with emotions, it is comedic at some times and then it gets gloomy a bit.(not an emotional roller coaster though).

The art style is really good, it captures all the facial expressions perfectly.                              It also gives a lot of information about S&M, different types of knots and what other things are used and what kinds of accident would happen if not used correctly.

The author did lots of research.

Mangaka: Ryuta Amazume

The manga has around 150 chapters, it is worth reading.                                                              It is Ecchi but again it is an S&M manga so it would be weird if it was not.

P.s

It is better then 50 Shades of Grey

Nanatsu no Taizai(The Seven Deadly Sin) review

The second season of Seven Deadly Sin is airing and people are saying that it is crazy good. So i decided to go and watch the first season and honestly it was good.
Synopsis
In a world similar to the European Middle Ages, the feared yet revered Holy Knights of Britannia use immensely powerful magic to protect the region of Britannia and its kingdoms. However, a small subset of the Knights supposedly betrayed their homeland and turned their blades against their comrades in an attempt to overthrow the ruler of Liones. They were defeated by the Holy Knights, but rumors continued to persist that these legendary knights, called the “Seven Deadly Sins,” were still alive. Ten years later, the Holy Knights themselves staged a coup d’état, and thus became the new, tyrannical rulers of the Kingdom of Liones.

Based on the best-selling manga series of the same name, Nanatsu no Taizai follows the adventures of Elizabeth, the third princess of the Kingdom of Liones, and her search for the Seven Deadly Sins. With their help, she endeavors to not only take back her kingdom from the Holy Knights, but to also seek justice in an unjust world.(from myanime list).

Review:
So the things that i liked about the anime is the characters and the bomd they have, then the way the characters strengths were showcased etc.
At first you might think that these Seven sins are to much overpowered but later you start getting frustrated about how weak they are(not exactly weak but not the same overpowered either). I also like how the anime showed how each sin got his or her powers(backstory).

Now there is some stuff that i didn’t like much, like the plot is kinda understood but some of the events are not explained very well, then there are places where the plot moves ridiculously fast(the near ending episodes) the plot was progressing at good pace but then at one point it just takes off, which kinda seems rushed.
But overall it is a good anime.
Now i am going to start with Season 2.

My 5 Favorite Full Metal Alchemist Characters

So i recently completed watching FMA:Brotherhood, i know it is really late but i finally finished watching it. Actually i flipped a coin one side being Monster and other FMA & the result was Monster so i watched it first and took a break from Anime overall and now i have returned to watch more masterpieces. I am not really fond of any new anime other then these slice of comedy and light hearted anime which are just 12 episode long. Actually if there is a new anime which is really worth watching do tell me.

I am not gonna review FMA because it is straight up good and has been reviewed over a thousand time and is sitting on top of the “all time best anime list” on  myanimelist.

This post might contain Spoilers.

 

5.  Greed (ling Yao)

Now i am gonna be honest here, the first greed that i saw acted like a asshole but even the first greed had a good side to him which i guess stays consistent. Out of all the homunculus he is the only nice guy(well he is bad but not as bad as others).                 The second greed(ling yao) just wanted friends, that is not a sign of a bad person.

4. Scar

I know scar tried to kill the brothers but he was filled with rage and wanted justice for his people. I just like him he is the villain who has turned into a good person(Cough*Saiyan prince*Cough).

maxresdefault

3. Roy Mustang

He is a total badass uses fire and is a respectable commander. He also burned down a homunculus. He is just the character that everyone likes.

maxresdefault (1)

2. Envy(inner envy)

I hate him but, the actual envy who committed suicide actually left me a bit teary eyed. It was satisfying see him die but the way it happened was quite sad. That makes me think, he is the most saddest homunculus he was always envious of humans. I know he killed Hughes but there is something about him that just doesn’t let me forget him.

hqdefault

i actually like this Envy(true form)

1. King Bradley

He is my personal favorite. He wields two sword and is to strong even in his almost old age, he is not a homunculus technically, he is like mostly human with an special eye which is the only thing that suggests that he is a homunculus. Well he was trained for that purpose so he is on their side. That last fight was actually amazing.

Bradley-stoic

P.S.

I know this list does not have Edward and Alphonse i like them and all but these are the characters that i feel really stood out …

 

zankyou no terror (review)

So i watched this anime over the Christmas holidays, actually i completed it in just one day and i really liked it.

Synopsis-

Painted in red, the word “VON” is all that is left behind after a terrorist attack on a nuclear facility in Japan. The government is shattered by their inability to act, and the police are left frantically searching for ways to crack down the perpetrators. The public are clueless—until, six months later, a strange video makes its way onto the internet. In it, two teenage boys who identify themselves only as “Sphinx” directly challenge the police, threatening to cause destruction and mayhem across Tokyo. Unable to stop the mass panic quickly spreading through the city and desperate for any leads in their investigation, the police struggle to act effectively against these terrorists, with Detective Kenjirou Shibazaki caught in the middle of it all.

Zankyou no Terror tells the story of Nine and Twelve, the two boys behind the masked figures of Sphinx. They should not exist, yet they stand strong in a world of deception and secrets while they make the city fall around them, all in the hopes of burying their own tragic truth.

 

So first of all the anime is just 11 episodes long and might leave you wondering what exactly is going on around our world or in our society.

SOME SPOILERS BELOW:

.

.

So the two teenagers are actually test subject and are really intelligent. They want to cause the attacks just for revealing the secret experiments going on. That’s all i am gonna tell. The anime has really good moments, chase scenes and overall it is a good anime to watch.

Chi No Wadachi Manga review(A trail of Blood)

Chi No Wadachi is a work of the famous Mangaka/author Shuuzou Oshimi. The author is famous for his works like Aku No Hana,Boku wa Mari No Naka and Hyouryuu Net Cafe. I having read Boku wa Mari No Naka can say that his works are a bit different then normal manga. His stories are mostly psychological,drama and a bit dark. Chi No Wadachi also has the same atmosphere and theme as most of his works. It was first published in Feb 2017.

Plot:

So returning to Chi No Wadachi/ A trail of Blood, the plot is quite different…how different you ask? Well we all Know what a Yandere is, so taking the same concept and changing it with mother. So basically the manga is about a yandere mother who loves her son more than anything. Now let me be clear that the manga has only had 10-12 chapters released till now and the actual plot might be different but from what i have read till now that’s the only thing that i have understood. I am hoping that the plot is more deeper than this as other works of Shuuzou Oshimi are a lot deeper.

Art-style:

Art-style seems pretty normal but it has this different vibe, like you just know something is wrong with the manga kind of artstyle.
image

Characters:

Well we have the son who is kinda shy but a good kid overall, then we have the mother who is at a first impression like a normal mother….these are the only two most important characters….if any other show up i will update it….

So from what i have read so far, i actually want more of it. It has an appeal to the readers of psychological stories and to fans of Shuuzou Oshimi. FYI i am an psychological story fan. I would say that you guys should give it a try…

 

Anime’s that i am looking forward to!

There are many good anime’s that are announced this year and i am excited to watch them, here are some of the anime that i am looking forward to.

1. FLCL Season 2

The first season aired way back in 2000-2001 and i was actually not expecting a new season. I liked the unique characters in the show. There was not much explanation about the story, but after going through some fansites i kinda understood it. This anime is actually rated quite high on other sites. But the anime is not coming out until the end of 2017(7 more months!!!!).

 2. Himouto! Umaru-chan 2nd Season

This is one of my favorite slice of life anime. Those who don’t know about it, the story     is some thing like this “People are not always who they appear to be, as is the case with Umaru Doma, the perfect high school girl—that is, until she gets home! Once the front door closes, the real fun begins. When she dons her hamster hoodie, she transforms from a refined, over-achieving student into a lazy, junk food-eating otaku, leaving all the housework to her responsible older brother Taihei. Whether she’s hanging out with her friends Nana Ebina and Kirie Motoba, or competing with her self-proclaimed “rival” Sylphinford Tachibana, Umaru knows how to kick back and have some fun!”( i just copy pasted the plot). This anime is funny and cute. I have no idea how does she gets small……

3. Inuyashiki

i found the synopsis for this anime quite interesting and there is a manga for this. It is fairly popular, i always wanted to read the manga but i never quite got the chance for doing so. Now i am thinking about watching it.

The teaser for the anime.

synopsis: Inuyashiki Ichirou is down on his luck. While only 58 years old, his geriatric looks often have him written off as a pathetic old man by the world around him and he’s constantly ignored and disrespected by his family despite all that he’s done to support them. On top of everything else, his doctor has revealed that he has cancer and it appears that he has little time left in this world. But just when it seems things couldn’t get any worse, a blinding light in the night sky strikes the earth where Ichirou stands. He later wakes up to find himself unscathed, but he soon starts to notice that there’s something… different about himself. However, it turns out that these strange, new changes are just what Ichirou needs to take a new lease on life and now it seems like there’s nothing to stop him from being a hero worthy of the respect that he never had before… unless, that is, there was someone else out there with these same changes…

4.Made in Abyss

I liked the animation quality in the PV and the story seems interesting. It has a web       manga as its source material, you guys can check it out.

 

5.Citrus

SO this is a yuri romance anime, which i am interested in because citrus was my very   first yuri manga. It is not all ecchi and stuff, it is more on the romance side. The               anime is announced but there is no fixed date…..

PV

These are my five anime that i am looking forward to. Which one are you looking forward to? Comment about it.

“Monster” review(short)

“Monster” is one of the most brilliant anime that i have watched, it has an interesting story with very well developed characters and the atmosphere of the anime. I am trying to keep this review SPOILER FREE.

d27aac9287af3fec17a5638f35b4fbff

Plot:

Monster is a psychological thriller anime through and through. The story is set in Germany after the cold war. The main protagonist is an Japanese neurosurgeon(Dr.Tenma) who is extremely talented and a prodigy. His life is going smoothly until the point where he has to make the decision of saving a 10 year old boy or a mayor. He saves the boy and loses his post as he did not save the mayor(hospital politics). After 10 years have passed on a series of murders come to light and the suspect is the boy that Tenma saved……

Monster-2

Review:

Monster has a very slow start(there is a reason it has 74 episodes), it is like a puzzle which when completed gives an outstanding result. There are many characters in this series which at first look’s as if they are not involved with plot at all, but as the story progresses you would realize each characters importance to the main plot.

The atmosphere the anime is set in is quite dark and gloomy which actually is important as the plot it self is quite dark. The most important part of Monster is it’s storytelling, the way the events are mentioned is quite astonishing. The characters in the anime are well developed.

It is the type of anime that i would not recommend binging. It took me almost 10 days to complete the anime( i can watch at least 20 episode a day). I admired the show and actually researched on some point from the anime.

Verdict:

This anime is one of the best and very few match up with it, so it is a must watch.

I wrote this review just after watching the last episode of monster so it is short and misses a lot of points, i will write a longer review for this anime.
