MEISTERS VS MEISTERS (VERSUS TUESDAY)

Today is Tuesday and I am so happy it’s only a three day week. My 4 day weekend is coming up yay.

Today is versus Tuesday!!!! We have the Meisters from Soul Eater. Maka Albarn, Black Star and Death The kid. Which Meister do you like better?

They all three are very different and unique in their own way. All good fighters and all dedicated to winning for their team.

Maka who is very passionate about being the best Meister at DWMA. She really wants to collect 99 spirits and 1 witch soul so she can have the best and most powerful Death Sycthe. She wants to surpass her dad who she resents. Her relationship with soul is really genuine and amazing when it comes to fighting together. They overcome a lot of their opponents.

Black Star who is from an assassin family called the Star Clan sometimes can use his Assassins skill when he is fighting. But because he is an attention seeker he shouts when he is about to fight and makes his presence known instead of sneaking up on his enemy. He is a good fighter but not yet has mastered being great. With his partner Tsubaki who sometimes tries to calm Black Star down they do win many fights.

Death the kid who is one of the top 3 Eat Level Fighters has an OCD of everything must be symmetrical even though his hair isn’t. He is great at his skills with shooting his Thompson guns. He can over power any of his opponents. He may have a weak moment because something is not symmetrical but once his partners Liz and Patti knock some since into him he comes too and wins.

If I had to choose I would go with Death the Kid! Something about him just cracks me up and I love him for his weird OCD. But he is also a great fighter. Also I like that he shoots guns. They look cool when he is firing at his enemies. I kind of relate to him because I have an OCD with cleanliness. Haha Maka can sometimes be annoying. Black Star I just can’t stand.

Who is your favorite Meister?

ANIME NYC POWERED BY CRUNCHYROLL – DAY 2 REVIEW

image

Anime NYC powered by Crunchyroll held its first ever convention in NYC’s Jacob Javitz Center. It was a three day event that was filled with many anime events, panels and exhibits. There was a lot of anime based events that was perfect for an Otaku.

THE FLOOR

Like many conventions, they had the exhibit floor where they were selling anime merchandise, autograph signings and of course the game floor for the gamers. There was also the artist gallery where many talented and creative artist showcase and sell their artwork. Here are some images of the exhibit floor and artist gallery.

EXHIBIT FLOOR 

ARTIST GALLERY 

Because it was their fist convention, the floor wasn’t as huge as many other a conventions I have attended. But it was enough for me to be happy with what was there.

PANELS

There were many panels on Saturday from Sentai Filmworks Industry, Yen Press Industry, Fate/Grand Order Localization, LeSean Thomas and many more.

The main event for me was the Official Sailor Moon Panel. It was a 2 hour event and it was awesome.

First they had a special singer Yoko Ishida who has sung a few of the Sailor Moon songs open the show.

Then they had the whole English voice cast of Sailor Moon Super S and Crystal. This was a first time in a long time the whole cast was there. They were asked many fun questions by the host like “If you can give your character any advice what would it be?”, “what was your favorite scene from Sailor moon?” and “if you can create a team of 4 from any character who would your team consist of?”. That last question was funny because the actors didn’t want to hurt anyone’s feeling because they didn’t pick them.

One of my favorite parts of the panel was when they played a little game where the voice actors has to scream in their character’s voice their attack and then their partnered voice actor had to imitate them and sound just like them. It was pretty awesome because since they are voice actors they sounded just like the other actor.

During this panel they announced that its Sailor moon’s 20th anniversary. There will be a Manga Special coming out in January. It will be an all colored pages manga. Which is pretty awesome. It was an awesome panel. So happy I attended.

Another Panel or concert I should say I was sooooo happy I attended was Hatsune Miku: Miku Expo Japan Tour video Concert!! The room was dark and they played the Zepp, Tokyo Concert. It was so amazing to watch Miku Perform. She is amazing and her songs are always awesome. Some of my favorite parts of the show was the guest appearances of the other famous Vocaloids like Luka, Kaito, Rin and Len and also Meiko. They each performed their own songs and I was excited when Miku and Luka did a duet. Sooo freaking awesome. One last thing I will like to point out was the attendees in the room with their glow sticks performing the choreography for the lights. It felt like a real concert.

Many other panels I was not able to attend which I will like to point out was that they were all about brining characters of color into anime more. Break the stereotype of blacks or people of color. It was pretty awesome that there are people out there that are for this.

COSTUMES

As always you have the cosplayers attending the convention with their awesome and cool costumes. Below are some of my favorite costumes.

ONE OF MY FAVORITE MOMENTS

One of my favorite parts of the convention was when I got to meet Soulcial Dream ENT, fellow WordPress members. They were all so awesome and so amazing to meet. We are always talking through WordPress and to meet in person was awesome. The funny thing we kind of met when we were going through bag check to go to the exhibit floor and they were complaining about getting their bag checked again and I turned and said I agree because it was so annoying. But we had no idea who each of us were at that moment. Then I went to the exhibit floor with my niece and decided to call Liz to finally meet up. when we finally met we realized we just met at bag check. Hahahah hilarious.

MASQUERADE ULTRA DELUXE 

Later that day they had the Masquerade Ultra Deluxe event that was presented by Tokyo Otaku Mode. Here is where they had the cosplay competition. Thanks to Liz and her team for saving my niece and I some seats. 😀😀 It was hosted by Uncle Yo which Liz and Alice both warned me that he was horrible and uses the same jokes he used at other conventions. Which he proved them correct. Haha he was pretty corny. He isn’t like the host from Comic Con.

The competition was pretty cool. It was super cute and fun because the cosplayers were so creative and talented. Many of them had a skit they performed with their cosplay. What I did like as well was the competition allowed walk ins. They were just as talented as the cosplayers who preregistered. Below are some of the cosplayers and some skits.

When the judges had to go backstage to make their decision and the audience awaited their decision they had a game for the audience to participate in. They had charades and a dance competition. It was pretty okay. I did think the audience games was a bit too long and dragged out. I was getting kind of bored and tired. I think they could have cut it a bit short.

I didn’t get to see the winner because the convention was going way longer than I needed it to. I had to catch a train home so I unfortunately can’t tell you who won. 😑😑

OVERALL Overall I did enjoy myself. I will have to say it wasn’t the best convention. I think they didn’t need the Jacob Javitz Center to host the event. They barely used up the space. They could have used many other places in the city because the event wasn’t nearly as big as Comic Con.

What I do have to complain about was the bag checks every time you enter a section of the convention. They should have checked all bags at the entrance of the Javitz Center and then we wouldn’t have been annoyed.

But I am happy there is a convention in NYC that is solely for anime. Happy I was able to attend.

RIN VS YATO (VERSUS TUESDAY)

image

Today is Tuesday and its Versus Tuesday!! Today we have Rin Okumura from Blue Exorcist and Yato from Noragami.

Who would win this fight????

Well they both have super entity powers. Rin is the son of Satan and Yato is the God of Calamity. Both are goofy and both can flip a switch and be bad asses.  Plus they both have a sword that has powers.

Rin was always there to help his brother Yukio from being bullied since they were kids. After his adopted father was killed by his real father Satan, Rin enrolls in Cross academy to become an exorcist so one day he can get revenge against Satan. Rin inherits a sword called Kurikara and when he opens it his appearance changes into a demon with blue flames. he becomes more powerful.

Yato wants to become a really popular God. He would leave his phone number anywhere for the people to call him for a deed to be done. Just so everyone can remember him. He is goofy and sneaky at the same time. But does care for his friends. When it comes to battles he can whoop some ass with his partner Yukine who is a Shinki that transforms into a silver Katana. We also find out in his past he was a ruthless killer and killed so many people.

Of I had to choose who would win, hmm I’ll probably go with Yato because he did have a past of being deadly. But then Rin could become posed by Datan and become super bad and kill. UGHH who knows. Hahah

Who do you think would win this fight Rin or Yato???

 

SAMURAI CHAMPLOO – Anime must watch

 

image

The series follows Mugen a hot headed, brutal fighting warrior whose fighting style is inspired by break dancing, Jin a classic and yet traditional style samurai who is very skilled in fighting and Fuu a ditsy and naive teahouse waitress on their journey to find the Samurai who smells of sunflowers.
Their journey is faced with many interesting and crazy characters. So many fights and adventure from Fuu getting kidnapped many times. Mugen looking for trouble and finding a reason to fight. Then Jin being challenged by many because he killed his master.

image

FUU

15 year old Fuu is a not so great waitress at a teahouse. She has a desire to find the Samurai who smells of sunflowers. Her father left the family when she was younger with no explanation. Her and her mother led a hard life due to not having the father’s support. Soon after her mother died of an illness. One day at the tea house an incident occurred and she saves Mugen and Jin from being executed because of the incident. She hires the two to become her bodyguard on her quest to find the Samurai who smells of sunflowers. He possibly could be her father.

image

MUGEN

19 year old Mugen is a poor, hostile, rude, vulgar and conceited drifter. His fighting style is unique in its own way by being wild and unconventional. He is quick to become angry and start fights over the littlest things. He is also a womanizer, he can be distracted by a beautiful woman easily. He is kind of an anti-hero. He becomes Fuu’s body guard after she saves him from being executed due to an incident a the teahouse she worked in.

image

JIN

20 year old Jin is a rōnin who was a samurai in training during the Tokugawra era but discontinued his training after he killed his master in self defense. He carries himself in a stoic manner and is well reserved compared to Mugen’s crazy ways. He is approached many times by students of the same dojo he trained at because they want revenge for the death of their master. He becomes Fuu’s body guard after she saves him from being executed due to an incident a the teahouse she worked in.

REVIEW

I will say this series is one of my favorite anime. It was fun and super entertaining.

CHARACTERS

The characters all were very unique and interesting in their own way. Fuu was not that annoying girl or damsel in distress which many series usually tend to have when its one girl and a couple of guys. She had a toughness but also goofy side and it was hilarious to watch. She was more like the responsible one in the group but still had her immature ways as well.

Mugen one of my favorite anime characters was probably the most entertaining character of the series. He was so short tempered and he was ready to fight everyone. No matter how dangerous the situation was he was up for a fight. There could be 10 guys against him and he will never back down. He was so cocky that he just knew he can beat anyone up. His crazy personality was perfect for the two characters who were opposite to him. When he fights it looks like he is breakdancing. His dance fighting style was perfect to watch.

Jin was such a cool, calm and collective character. He held an aurora about him that made you want to know more about his story. When anyone challenged Jin and they were loud and rude, they always underestimated what he can do. I loved to see Jin whoop their asses in his samurai style fighting. Even with glasses on they never fell off because he was that good. I liked how he barely said anything but when he did it all made since and had a point to it.

I liked the relationship between the characters, Fuu was like a younger sister. She was always nagging them or trying to put them in their place. It was cute and funny. I loved how Mugen and Jin were in competition on who is the better fighter. They always said don’t die because I am supposed to kill you. It was a rivalry that I liked throughout the series. But when they had to fight enemies they were there for each other.

STORYLINE

The storyline was awesome, I liked how throughout the series even though we are on this journey with Fuu to find the samurai who smelled of sunflower, Jin and Mugen’s past comes back to haunt them.

At many points through out the series we see former students of the Dojo Jin attended try and attack him to get revenge on behalf of their former master. As much as Jin tried to defend himself, they did not want to hear. They wanted to fight and have Jin dead. Jin was able to handle all these students.

Mugen’s story from his past as a pirate comes back to play a part in their journey. Mugen was about to leave the group to help his former pirates and the lady he once loved. He gets in to trouble as they try to steal and kill, Mugen realizes this isn’t going to change and found out they were betraying him so he ends the relationship.

The way the writers included all their stories into their journey was perfect. It Didn’t take away from the main storyline. It was put in perfectly and wasn’t a distraction or a pointless filler episode.

Another part of the story I liked was the trio trying their best to find money to get food. They were always hungry and yet always poor. Once they were able to chuck up some money for food they would stuff their mouths. Hahaha

MUSIC

The music is so original and definitely unique because it had a hip hop theme. It was a lot of beat box sounds, spinning and scratching of a record like the 80’s DJs did in the clubs. The music was also perfect for when the team fought because the fighting looked like a b-boy style of dancing. So it was Iike you were watching a cool music video.

ARTISTIC STYLE

I like the artistic work of this series. The clothing looked like the Edo period. The samurai clothing, to the Yukatas and the clothing of the poor. The outfits looked like old Japan. The settings of the locations they traveled also embraced the old Japan we read in books or watch in movies.

OVERALL

I have to say this is an anime that is so worth watching. It has action, drama and all the in between. I can watch this anime over and over. Every time adult swim airs Samurai Champloo I always watch it because it’s just that good.

FALL 2017 ANIME FAV AND LEAST FAV

IMG_3206

Well It’s half way through the season and now I kind of have a better understanding on the shows and where my interests stands. Below are some my Fav and least fav.

 

FAVORITES

IMG_3202

Anime: Inuyashiki Genre: Psychological, Action, Science Fiction, Thriller

INUYASHIKI

Ichiro Inuyashiki a 58 year old man who looks must older has a sad life. He is not respected by his family and others look at him as a pathetic man. Not only that, but his doctor reveals to him that he has cancer and doesn’t have long to live. One night while going for a walk with his new dog he found he ends up on a hill and sees a teen boy standing there alone. A random bright light appears from the sky and then he wakes up in his bed. He has no idea what happened but his life begins to change. He no longer has cancer and now his body feels younger than ever. Realizing his body is different and now is robotic he decides to become a hero and save people. Little does he know there is another out there like him but is opposite and is a villain.

THOUGHTS:

This is my favorite show of the season. I am obsessed. It is dark and psychologically can screw your head over. The main character the old man Ichiro is probably one of my new fav characters. He is a new found hero and wants to save everyone. With his new powers he is doing just that. You feel for him and you def go through an emotional roller coaster with him. The teen for me I like a lot. I always say I like bad guys. He may be a bit psycho but I’ve been missing bad guys like this in anime. This storyline is definitely different than any other anime I’ve watched before. And I’m so happy we have something new and dark.

IMG_3189

Anime: Food Wars- Third Plate Genre: Ecchi, School, Shonen

FOOD WARS

Food wars follows a boy named Sōma Yukihira who grew up in his father, Jōichiro Yukihira’s restaurant. His father taught him all about cooking and they would compete against each other in cooking battles. Every time Sōma would lose. Hahah One day Sōma’s father receives a job to cook abroad and around the world. So he closes shop and then enrolls Sōma in to an elite culinary school where only 10% of students manage to graduate. Here at this school Sōma meets many student who are all skilled at cooking. Many of them each specializing in something specific for cooking such a meat, curry, Italian cuisine and etc. While in the school the kids are faced with many cooking challenges and battles as well. You witness Sōma developing as a chef and reaching his goal of becoming better than his father one day.

THOUGHTS:

You know I am a fan of food wars because the food literally is life. It looks sooo good. As for the story this time it’s not as intense as the other seasons. I liked when they had the competitions against each other. This time they are at a fair and it’s not like the one on one cooking competition. But it’s still enjoyable. They’ve introduced some new and interesting characters.

IMG_3191

Anime: Garo Vanishing Line Genre: Action Fantasy, Science, Fiction, Demon

GARO VANISHING LINE

In Russell City, there is a plot that is beginning to prosper and can eventually cause a major problem. The first to hear about this plot is a man named Sword who fights in the Shadow Wars. He lost his little sister and the only clue he has is the word El Dorado. A girl named Sophie lost her older brother and is in need of help. Her only clue is the Word El Dorado as well which was left on his laptop. She runs into Sword and asks for his help during this Shadow war. Sword decides to help since they both have the same clue to find their loved ones. 

THOUGHTS:

I really like this show, the character Sword is a like-able character. He is tough and cool at the same time. Gina is what I wish more anime female characters were like, sexy and yet dangerous. Don’t let her sexiness fool you. She can whoop ass. Sophie is the teen character but she isn’t annoying like most characters in her position would be. The story is pretty cool they are looking for Horrors (demons) and the fights are pretty cool. The action is there and fun to watch. I really do enjoy this show.

IMG_3194

Anime: Kino’s Journey: The Beautiful World Genre: Adventure, Fantasy, Science Fiction

KINO’S JOURNEY: THE BEAUTIFUL WORLD

Kino decides to go on an adventure to explore the many countries that are out there. All kino has are guns to protect her throughout this journey with her moped. On this journey we see different counties people, rules Andersen about their stories. Some good and some bad. Kino’s rule is to stay no longer than 3 days. She sticks to that so she can explore as many countries out there.

THOUGHTS:

Kino’s Journey is so entertaining. I really enjoy this adventure. It’s fun to see the different countries and their different forms, different rules and interesting people. Kino who I swore was a boy is the most adorable and awesome character. She looks cute but she can shoot a gun with precision. I was so surprised when I saw her in battles. It was pretty cool because it’s a little girl that can keep up with the big boys. I really do like this anime.

IMG_3192

Anime: Juni Taisen: Zodiac War Genre: Action, Fantasy

JUNI TAISEN: ZODIAC WAR

A group of warriors which names are derived from the 12 Chinese Zodiac are sought together for the 12th Zodiac tournament to fight to the death. In a city that has been clear of half a million people these warriors battle it out. They each swallow a poisonous gem that the winner must collect all to be granted one wish they desire.

THOUGHTS:

Not sure how I feel about Juni Taisen. It is entertaining. It reminds me of Fate Stay night because of the warriors coming together to fight. I do like a few characters like Rabbit and Ox. I would say you can like other characters but don’t get too attached because they may not last long. I will see how this show goes. I’ll continue to watch.

 

NOT SURE YET

IMG_3187

Anime: Evil or Live Genre: Psychological, School

EVIL OR LIVE

There is a new disease that is sweeping amongst young boys and girls which is called “Net Addiction”. It’s making young boys and girls grow more attached to the internet and avoid social and family life. Due to these drastic conditions spreading these young boys and girls are put into a rehabilitation center that is more like a prison. Hikibi our main Character has no idea what he has been enrolled into. Will he survive?

THOUGHTS:

Evil or Live is definitely an interesting show. It kind of touches on our society today. Millennials being addicted to the internet and not engaging in everyday life. Now the school they take the kids to is pretty brutal. It’s battle of the fittest. Or rather only the strong survive. I dont really think the story is all that great. It is going to eventually lead to the kids rebelling against the officials of the school. I really don’t know where it can go. But I do watch it because it is still interesting.

IMG_3184

Anime: Code Realize Gurdian of Rebirth Genre: Adventure, Romance, Fantasy, Josei

CODE REALIZE GUARDIAN REBIRTH

Cardia lived in a abandoned mansion to follow her father’s wishes. Her body carries a poison that anything which touches her skin will melt and due to this the townspeople called her “Monster”. Her father told her to stay away from people and to never fall in love. One day her father disappears with no explanation. Cardia’s life is interrupted when the Royal Guards break in to capture her to use for their own purpose. But she is saved by Lupin a sophisticated thief and go on an adventure with him to locate her father.

THOUGHTS:

I’m still up in the air about this show. I do find it entertaining. I like that they use fictional characters in this show like Victor Frankenstein, Dracula, and Van Helsing to name a few. It is definitely eye candy for females. I mean every male character is so hot hahah. The storyline isn’t so bad. I think it can take us somewhere and I am interested in going there.

 

LEAST FAVORITES

IMG_3182

Anime: Black Clover Genre: Shonen, Magic, Fantasy

BLACK CLOVER

Asta and Yuno are both raised as orphans in a small town outside of Clover Kingdom.
Asta dreams to become Wizard King but one problem… he wasn’t born with magic powers. He trains intensively his physical powers. Yuno has magic powers and is considered a prodigy with his powers. He dreams of becoming the Wizard King as well. Now at 15 they are both granted the opportunity to apply to become Wizards known at the Magic Knights. The show takes on us their journey of becoming the Wizard King.

THOUGHTS:

Black Clover is like your typical anime shounen. You pretty much can predict what will happen in every episode. Asta is kind of annoying, he screams all the time and barely speaks normally. He is too over the top. He wants to become Wizard King and that reminds me of when Naruto wanted to become Hokage. Yuno the secondary character has no life in him at all. At least Sasuke had a bit of character. He is pretty much dead pan. Hahah it’s entertaining no matter what but nothing special from the other shounen shows.

IMG_3200

Anime: Sengoku Night Blood Genre: Historical, Romance, Fantasy

SENGOKU NIGHT BLOOD

 Yuzuki is a normal teen until one day she begins to see a mysterious light coming from her cell phone. The light transports her to an unfamiliar world. 

This world is called Shinga and is inhabited by Vampires and Werewolves. It once use to be a prosperous and peaceful town. They need Yuzuki to bring back peace and prosperity. She has special blood that possesses strength, healing and can awaken Jingazoku’s which is one of the strongest vampire’s powers. She is due to rule the world and we watch her journey through this romance and war story. 

THOUGHTS:

This show reminds me of Diablik lovers. All male vampires and one girl. I am kind of over the vampire genre. It isn’t a new storyline or something different to present with the vampire genre in this day and age. the characters are all good looking but that is but so far it can take this show. i will give the show a good review with the artistic drawing and use of colors. Also, the fighting scenes are decent.

IMG_3199

Anime: Taisho Mebiusline Chicchai San Genre: Historial, Shonen

TAISHO MEBIUSLINE CHICCHAI SAN 

 During the time Imperial Japan is about to go to war with the world, Hiiragi Kyoichiro leaves his town to attend the university in the capital of Tokyo. He is hoping to get a great scholar’s education to become a great man in his hometown. But now the Japanese Army knows of his special ability he had since his youth of being able to see spirits of the dead. Now they are seeking him out. 

THOUGHTS :

I don’t know what to say about this. It’s such a random anime. The characters Chibi forms are super cute but it’s hard for me to follow the story because I’m so distracted. Also, the show is only 3mins long so it’s definitely not enough time to give details on the story and to really get to know the characters. I probably will drop it but then the shows are only 3 mins so I can just finish them.

 

what are your thoughts on this season???
