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.

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona(What should you choose)

Persona is a really big franchise which at it’s core is a Game first and Anime later. The Persona games are really huge and the latest release Persona 5(2016) has got an anime adaption like its predecessor Persona 4. One good thing about Persona is that none of the stories are connected or inter-linked together,so that is a good thing for people who want to get in the series.

Now they obviously have two options 1. To watch the anime or 2. Play the game.

I am gonna talk about Persona 5 right now because it’s a New addition and is in the limelight now.

Persona 5(Game): So the game definitely has some major advantages like The whole story is very well explained(100 hr+to complete the game), You can actually experience the world of Persona, there is lot of customization options etc. The reviews for the game are all in 9’s out of 10. The soundtrack and the character development are the most important element of the game.Also they have constant updates and all.

Persona 5(Anime):Well it is a good anime but that’s it. As a standalone anime it might have been on the great side but it’s based on the game which has over 100 hrs of story, well of course an 24 episode anime can’t really show the whole story in detail yet it does a fine job of showing most of the important stuff. Animation is not the most amazing one but well again not bad. Strong point of the anime is the soundtrack which are the same from the game.

I would tell you to go and play the game but if you don’t have a ps4 and are not willing to buy one then you should probably watch the anime. It’s just that the Anime is good but the game is amazing.

Banana Fish looks good

So i just came across Banana Fish and thought to myself, “Looks like an interesting title, i wonder is it about a restaurant or something”. But it is not about an restaurant or anything remotely about cooking or catching fish and its nothing about bananas either.

Well i it is about an American Gang and more particularly about one guy named Ash, who is adopted by a crime lord to be nurtured to become a cold-blooded killer.

Synopsis:Nature made Ash Lynx beautiful; nurture made him a cold ruthless killer. A runaway brought up as the adopted heir and sex toy of “Papa” Dino Golzine, Ash, now at the rebellious age of seventeen, forsakes the kingdom held out by the devil who raised him. But the hideous secret that drove Ash’s older brother mad in Vietnam has suddenly fallen into Papa’s insatiably ambitious hands—and it’s exactly the wrong time for Eiji Okamura, a pure-hearted young photographer from Japan, to make Ash Lynx’s acquaintance…

From the synopsis this anime feels like its gonna be dark and more action focused, yeah it is kind of dark but the animation style is not really making the atmosphere for me. By no means it is bad, it is quite good and fitting for this anime………..but i was expecting something like ’91 days’ style of animation.

I had heard about Banana Fish prior to the anime. There is a completed Manga which people can go and read it. This manga had released way back in 1985 and ran through till 96′. So the animation actually kind of stay’s true to the manga’s art-style.

I am really interested in the story but not gonna read the manga though, i am gonna watch the anime.(weekly updates and overviews)

I find all of the character in the anime very interesting and i am really happy that a different kind of anime has come up. It is quite refreshing in my opinion and i can finally get back to watching some anime. From what i have heard it has a amazing story, so that’s good to know.

Banana-FishThis animation style reminds me of early 2000’s and 05′ anime like Red Garden and some other.

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.

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.

Welcome to the NHK! Full Impression and review.

So you thought that a life of a Neet or  hikikomori is trouble free and nice, well you will have a huge change of opinions after watching this anime!

banner_964

Trailer:

(This trailer contains a tiny bit of spoilers)

 

The story and character in brief:

The anime starts of with  Tatsuhiro Satou (MC) sitting in his room in a dreamy state and believing  that his hikikomori state is because of a big conspiracy. He has been a NEET for 4 years now after he just stopped going to college because he thought that the his classmates were laughing at him and were making fun of him(they were actually not,it is just in his head).

 

Story (10/10)

This anime is unique,complex and bitter truth about the real world. The story is a bit slow paced and because being slow it actually explains the plot beautifully. The story is deep and really makes you question are you actually satisfied with your life? The anime touches sensitive areas like depression, emotional roller-coasters, suicidal thoughts etc. Not many anime have touched those areas so deeply. The start is pretty funny, but once you the story progresses it gets more mature and everything starts making sense. Now for the romantic factor, this anime has no lovey dovey romance like you would find in other anime, but has a  more of a realistic approach. This anime shows the reality of the world we are living in and to be honest it is not that good. My point is that the story is awesome and satisfying.

Soundtrack and music (9/10)

The music used in the anime is real good starting from the Opening and ending to all other soundtracks used during the dramatic scenes and such. Great song choice. The music is fitting to the events in the anime.

Character (10/10)

The Character development in the anime is on point. Each character has a purpose. Every character grows, fails, learns, and maximizes their potential as a solid character. There is no such thing as a “weak character” in this anime. It’s actually unbelievable how well written, well developed and well exposed every character is and how that justifies their existence. Not a single character feels extraneous or even annoying.

Art (10/10)

The artwork itself is not the best but it is the most fitting for an anime which has so many emotions and feels to it. Well the anime was aired in 2006( probably made in 2005) which is almost 11 years back.

Overall (10/10)

You just have to watch this anime it is brilliant, well you can take your time and i do not recommend binge watching it. That depends on the viewer, but it is a must watch anime and should be watched by anime fans and non anime fans too. I personally feel it is on the same level as Toradora, Lovely Complex, Kimi ni Todoke etc. but it is too underrated.

 

 

 

Attack on Titans 2 first episode review

Attack on Titans is back and back with a bang!!
image

image

The first episode starts with the continuation of the events that happened at the end of the last season and they also discovered the titan inside the wall.

Second thing wall rose has fallen (oh this was a spoiler…well everyone has already read the manga anyways)

image
Lol

Also we saw the abnormal titan or the gorilla titan in this episode and a very serious death (tooo violent).

The op track and end track are awesome too…well that was expected.

In any case i have completely forgotten what happened in the manga so i am going to wait for the next episode ie. Ep 27….

Well thats all for today….
