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.

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….

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.

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.

“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.
