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.

 

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.

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.

This is the kind of manga that will make you actually laugh out loud. There is no exact plot to this manga, it is about the daily crazy life of Iori (mc) and his friends.

The art style is epic, it will make you roll on the floor laughing.

This manga is a must read…… and it is my favorite manga. It is number one on my top 10 list.

Look at the animation!

There are not that many anime that i know which are related to E-sports(probably none) and i was quite intrested in this anime as i had been reading the manga for a while and hoped for it to be turned into an anime.

Animation: 10/10

The animation quality is beautiful(the above pic is from the anime).

The first episode made quite the impact and made me hate some of the characters, well the villans were introduced pretty early in this one. I also feel that the world of E-sport like other sports is not an easy one( people thing just because sitting on chair and playing game seems easy, the E-sport world is not that easy)

I recommend it to people who want to watch different anime and to people who are interested in E-sports.

Overall: 9/10

Well i liked the manga and the anime is great. Thats all for the review…….

Attack On Titans Episode 27 Review

Episode 27 Of AOT ” I am Home” was aired and it was great.

Screenshot (4)

The episode was more focused on Sasha, and i liked her backstory. We actually did not know much about her, but we now get to know about her family and other stuff.

Our usual Titan action was not much involved in the episode, but the thrilling fight between this( pic below) Titan and Sasha made up for it.

Screenshot (5)

The above scene was disturbing and violent and what more the child was looking at her mother getting eaten up by a titan….damn AOT….

This scene was also intense….Screenshot (6)

The ending of the episode had Conny return back to his village only to find it destroyed..and we will have to wait a week ( or read the manga).

Rating: 8.5/10

The verdict:

It was worth waiting for 3 years and in the season 2 the plot starts to thicken and i like it.

Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episode 1 review

The Story of Boruto, the son of Naruto has officially begin. I watched the 1st episode just now and to be honest i liked it(more than i thought), it screams modern as the whole Naruto universe has begun to modernize.

boruto - 01

 

 

Art-style:

So lets talk about the art style now, many fans were kinda pissed when they saw the changes in art style. But what i feel is that the Art style looks pretty modern and kinda unique like next generation art style.

Today’s episode:

The new episode started with Kawaki and Boruto fighting and konoha is destroyed, well this happens sometime in the future though. The first episode starts with Boruto jumping on building with Shikamaru’s son( i forgot his name) and it kinda brings back memories.Well Boruto seems to be sad as his dad is always busy with work and has no time to comeback home and stuff.

I actually like how Boruto is thinking, like he is a different person then his father, he was raised up differently then his father so the whole world should not expect him to be the same as Naruto(fans also should understand this) and he also as his own goals. The new episode had some mysterious in it too, like Boruto’s left eye and the snake like creature that possesses the rich kid, there are many theories about that out there on the web. But i want to wait for a week to find out about it….

This is was my impression about the new episode.
