Tokyo Ghoul RE: Anime Review(Some Spoilers Ahead)

Well Tokyo Ghoul Re is the sequel to Tokyo Ghoul√A  . 

You can start seeing some similarities there in terms of Art style and Stuff. Now Tokyo Ghoul Re is still carry’s a dark theme but it also has some comedy in it, something like in  Black Butler, where the whole theme is dark but you also have those chibi faces and quirky comedy, that was kinda different from what i was expecting but i’ll just say that it doesn’t really bother me but it might bother some fans( I don’t know if it is the same in manga but its there in the anime).

Story: So the direction of the story is kinda different with Kaneki now know as Haise is fighting with the CCG to fight against Ghouls. So when i actually started watching it i was left a bit confused, i had a lot of questions in my mind which most of them were answered after watching the 12 episodes but some of them still linger. The Pacing seems a bit fast probably because they only had 12 episodes to work with. I wonder why do they get just 12 episodes, Tokyo Ghoul is a pretty popular anime.  

Characters: So most of the older characters are still present here but we have some addition like Saiko, Urie, Shirazu,Tooru etc. Well basically these new characters are from Haise’s own team and i personally like Shirazu. Each of those guys have unique personalities and unique motivations to fight against Ghouls.

Soundtracks: Well nothing can top “Unravel”, so the soundtrack are well lets say Nice, nothing more nothing less. 

Animation: There are noticeable  downgrades from previous Seasons, Particularly during Fight scenes. The style which was present during the fights in the first and even some of the second season is now missing, those fight scenes don’t make a huge impact like previous ones.

Overall i liked binge watching the anime but only because the story was moving ahead and i was too lazy to read the Manga. Trust me i’ll read the manga eventually but till then i am  continuing with the anime. I just feel that the whole story is moving really fast with less explanation overall.  Also i know i am very late with this review but as of now the second season is airing so i thought it would be a good time to watch this season and then continue with the second one.

Aguu: Tensai Ningyou Episode 2 impression (spoilers)

In this Episode we see Ai talking to Machi about her Aguu. Then Machi in turn tries to bribe Ai by giving her one of the Aguu that she has.

For doing this Machi takes Ai to the Aguu Market. There we meet the owner/tailor “Sherlock” who apparently sews Aguu to people for a deposit.

At first Ai agrees to get an Aguu sewed to her but later on realizes that it is the wrong thing to do. So she uses the Talisman given by the grampa on Machi but is later cornered by Sherlock the tailor. Then gramps and the annoying brat come in to save Ai. It is also revealed that Gramps and the brat have special powers which they use to save Ai and beat Sherlock.

It is also revealed that there is a huge demand for Aguu and there are a lot of markets all around the world. Which suggests that there is a huge world surrounding Aguu which is unknown to most common people.Aguu seems to have a very interesting environment which i hope is explored more in the later episodes.

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….

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.

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.

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…
