WHICH ANIME DEATHS AFFECTED YOU?? (BIG SPOILERS)

image

As you can tell by the title (Big Spoilers) so proceed with caution. I don’t know if it’s me or are the writers of these stories out to break our hearts on purpose. I hate when I connect with a character and then they are taken away. There are soooo many deaths in anime, but these are the ones that really caught me off guard.

L LAWLIET – DEATH NOTE

I knew it was a cat and dog chase. L was so smart and savvy I swore he was going to last until the end and solve the case. But nooooo they decided to take away my precious L. When you hear his last heart beat and then he drops his spoon and falls out the chair. The music made it more intense. I was dying on the inside for like a month.

 

LIGHT YAGAMI- DEATH NOTE

I knew that Light was going to get caught, but I didn’t expect him to die. I thought they would lock him up in a special prison for psycho paths. When he was shot up in the warehouse I think I felt the pain. Hahah Then when he was able to escape the warehouse I thought maybe there is hope. Then Ryuk decides to write Light’s name in the notebook, I literally cried my eyes out.

 

KAORI MIYAZONO- YOUR LIE IN APRIL
Your Lie in April was probably the most beautiful anime I’ve ever watched. The music was beautiful. The relationship between Kōsei and Kaori was amazing. I just didn’t expect her to have a disease that was not curable. At the end when he read the …😭😭😭 letter I’m sorry I’m upset now, it was so heartbreaking. Then that scene of him playing the piano and she was there in spirit playing the violin I was drenched in tears.

 

ITACHI UCHIHA – NARUTO

Where do I begin. I mean I knew Sasuke had a obsession for killing his brother. But dammit why Itachi. When itachi was coughing up so much blood and kept walking towards sasuke I didn’t know what to think. Then he collapsed and then I collapsed. Hahha (so dramatic of me) they could have saved his character. There could have been so much to do with him.

 

JIRAIYA A.K.A PERVY SAGE – NARUTO
PERVY Sage was such a character to remember. He was so funny and perverted you can’t help but love him. When he fought Nagato (Pain) that battle was intense. Why did Nagato crush his throat and had the nerve to kill him. I think I cried more when Pervy Sage mustered up enough strength to send a coded message.

 

MAES HUGHES – FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST BROTHERHOOD
Hughes was such a funny and yet serious character. It was so funny when he always talked about his daughter and showed her pictures. Such a loving dad. When that episode came and he discovers a secret within the military, he decides to report it. He is taken from us too soon. Envy is such a bitch! Never liked her/him haha. I don’t think I can look at telephone booth the same anymore. I will just keep thinking of Hughes.

 

LELOUCH LAMPEROUGE/ ZERO – CODE GEASS

I know he planned his death but come on, it still hurts to see him go. I loved his character and the power he had. The two lives he portrayed/ lived. I was literally upset for a bit. I wanted him to cont use living as zero.

 


NINE AND TWELVE – ZANKYO NO TERROR

I put them together because their deaths came as a huge surprise. Also, they died pretty much the same time. I was so pissed off that twelve was shot from behind by the police. He was a kid. They didn’t know the story of why he did what he did. Then nine died from the experiments he went through as a kid. I cried so hard because I thought it was so unfair.

 

PETRA RAL – ATTACK ON TITAN

I like Annie Leonhardt because she is a tough chick, but when she was the female Titan and killed Petra I wanted to beat the crap out of Annie. Petra was the sweetest person ever. She did nothing wrong. She was kind to everyone. Why did she have to die? 😭😭😭😭 Levi was soooo angry he went off on Female Titan Annie. I really cried because I swear I didn’t see Petra’s death coming at all.

 

SHEELE, BULAT, CHELSEA, LUBBOCK, MINE, TATSUMI, LEONE, ESDEATH-AKAME GA KILL

Where do I begin with this show? I mean really! This show knew how to mess with a person’s heart. Just when I was getting to know a character they took them away with a blink of an eye. Like seriously. First Sheele, then Bulat, Chelsea, Lubbock, Mine, Tatsumi and Leone. Also, Esdeath, I know she was a villain but she was my favorite character. I never saw a show that killed more than half their main characters. I think after every episode I was holding my heart. I didn’t know how to react.

So those are the deaths that affected me in many ways.

TELL ME WHAT ANIME DEATHS AFFECTED YOU? 😢😢😢😢😭😭😭😭😭😭

BUNGOU STRAY DOGS – TEACHING THEM TO KILL: THEN TO DIE – EPISODE 8 REVIEW

image

The episode opens with a mysterious girl on the street by herself dressed in a red kimono. There is also a phone that keeps on ringing, but no one is answering. We see the girl walking up to Dazai and grabs his arm. Dazai is confused as to why she approaches him. The girl opens the phone that was ringing the whole time then there is a ray of purple light that surrounds the two of them.

The next day at the agency’s headquarters the group mentions that Dazai is missing. They come up with different excuses but do not find the situation to be dire. We then see Tanizaki is healed from his previous encounter with the port Mafia. He tells us of his ordeal with Dr. Yosano healing him. Then approaches Dr. Yosano looking for someone to go shopping with her. Everyone left the room except Atsushi

Dr. Yosano and Atsushi are shopping when the mysterious girl with the red kimono passes them. Atsushi and the girl both look back at each other. Because of this encounter Atsushi runs into a man on the street. The man becomes upset and Dr. Yosano tries to calm the situation. Unfortunately, the guy was still upset and didn’t understand the situation he was about to get into. He gets beaten up by the Dr.

After Dr. Yosano beats up the guy, her and Atsushi are on the subway train coming back from shopping. Their train has been hijacked and has bombs on it. The target is Atsushi. They come to realize they have to fight the hijackers to save the innocent passengers on the train. Dr. Yosano heads toward the front of the train and comes face to face with Kajii Motojirou a member of the Port Mafia. His ability is lemon bombs. They begin to fight and Kajii is using his bombs to the fullest injuring the Dr.

Atsushi heads to the rear of the train and he comes face to face with the mysterious girl in the red kimono. We find out her name is Izumi Kyouka and her ability is Demon Snow and she is an assassin for the Port Mafia. She receives a phone call from a man ordering her to kill anyone that tries to stop the bombs. Her and Atsushi begin to fight. He knows he has to save the passengers on the train. He then uses his tiger ability to defend himself. He finally gets Kyouka in a position where she is defeated.

We come back to Dr. Yosano’s fight, where you think she is dead but to come back fully healed and to beat the heck out of Kajii. We find out her ability is thou shall not die. Where she can heal anyone that has life threatening injuries. She defeats Kajii. She speaks on the train’s loud speaker and tell Atsushi that the bomb has a remote control that can stop it.

SPOILER:

Kyouka opens her kimono to show that she is wearing the bomb. Atsushi is upset that Kyouka has no feelings when she speaks and tries to help her. He takes the remote control and stops the bomb. Kyouka receives a phone call telling her the bomb will still go off. We then see Kyouka become filled with emotions saying she doesn’t want to kill anyone anymore. She then Jumps out the train and Atsushi jumps out to save her. He rips the bomb off her and it explodes.
We see them fall into a river. They both come out and Kyouka look at Atsushi with so much emotion.

The last scene of the episode we see who was on the other line of the phone and we also see Dazai hanging from chains.
THOUGHTS

This episode was a little different for me. I think they could have did better with the plot to get Atsushi. How did they know he was going to be on that train? Kyouka I feel they should have kept her character the mysterious assassin. That part could have been a major role in the show.
I am upset they took Dazai ugh he is my favorite. There were still some funny parts. I grew to love Dr. Yosano because I like crazy characters and she reminds me of a female version of Dr Stein from Soul Eater.

TWIN STAR EXORCISTS : NEW TRIAL UNBELIEVABLE GAME – EPISODE 7 REVIEW

image

SYNOPSIS: The story is about a 14 year old boy Rokuro who has many dreams, but one of them is not becoming an exorcist. He grew up in Seika dormitory with many exorcists including his best friend Ryogo. They all believe he can be a great exorcist one day, but Rokuro just does not have that goal in life.

Benio is a 14 year old girl who is also an exorcist and is determined to become the strongest exorcist there is. Benio is sent to live in the same dormitory that Rokuro stays in.
Rokuro and Benio both soon find out that they are The Twin Star Exorcists and are suited to marry. They are fated to have the prophesied child who will be the most powerful exorcist ever.

EPISODE 7 SUMMARY


This episode Rokuro and Benio are summoned by Arima who takes them away on a trial to be tested. Arima drives them to an luxurious Villa he use to own. Little does Rokuro and Benio know they are going to be living together alone.

Once they are moved in Arima immediately sets a test in motion for them. The floors and walls all start to move. To make everything go back to normal they must complete a test together without using their talisman and they must use their physical strength all while depending on each other. You start to see the relationship between Rokuro and Benio blossom.

When they are almost finished with their test they receive a call from the other exorcist needing help fighting a kegare. After they complete the test they are then seen coming to the rescue and killing off the kegare together. Rokuro realizes Benio is missing her hair tie. Benio begins to freak out because her brother gave her the hair tie. Rokuro take Benio back to the villa where he finds her hair tie. Benio and Rokuro then are seen in the living room where Benio tells Rokuro about her past and brother. After the story they go back to the way they were with the smart remarks. Haha

MY THOUGHTS:

I can say this episode was very different than the others. I liked the simplicity of the story. I appreciated seeing the characters putting their pride aside and working together to accomplish a goal. I also liked that you see their relationship growing and becoming something more than just the back and forth arguments they always have. My favorite part is Benio opening up to Rokuro about her past with her brother. I can say I really enjoyed this episode a lot.

FAIRYTAIL MANGA SPINOFF – LAXUS DREYAR

image

We all know Fairytail is one of the most popular anime and manga out there. It was just announced that there will be a manga spinoff, Fairytail Gaiden – Raigō Issen. It follows Laxus Dreayar. Kodansha’s Magazine pocket app launched the first chapter already. I’m not a big fan of fairytail but I did like Laxus.

I guess that is the thing to do when you have a successful thing going, make spinoff shows and mangas and make more money off of that. If Naruto does it why can’t Fairytail. Hahaha
I will read it and see if it is good.

What do you think about there being a spinoff?

 

Which would you rather be???

image

Yes, a random post. I’ve posted this on a few anime forums and on my social media accounts. I loved the response it received.

If you had the choice to be turned into a Vampire, Parasyte, Ghoul or a Titan, which would you rather be turned in to?

Lets remember all of the above didn’t have a choice of becoming what they’ve become! 😢😢😢

As for myself, I rather be a vampire because they are sexy and so sophisticated. At least most of them. Plus they are immortal in some way.

Love to hear what you choose?

ANIME FAN FEST NJ- DAY 2

image

Otaku USA Magazine and Mad Event Entertainment (producers of comic con in Long Beach, CA) hosted the ANIME FAN FEST!! This was their first convention which was sponsored by Bandai Namco. Many fans came out to show off their costumes, attend many panels and just show their love for anime.

Here you see the pictures of the floor for merchandise. I wanted to buy everything. But I took a breather and said no let’s not go crazy.


But I did manage to buy these.

image

Some interesting panels they had were:

 

1. The Worst Anime of All Time

This panel was hosted by Mike Toole, a critic and feature writer for Anime News Networks. This panel was packed. Mike showed us many old anime that I can agree were bad. One anime they didn’t even finish coloring the characters. But they had to rush to put it out. Another the transformation of the robots made no functional since. One anime I will name he showed was called chargedman Ken, look for a clip of this anime and I will agree this show was horrible but yet funny because of how horrible it was.


2. A Million Ways to Draw in the West

This panel was hosted by Tommy Yune, President of Animation at Harmony Gold USA, Jason Thompson, Manga editor of Otakus USA and Lizbeth R Jimenez, Published author & Artist of Sacred 13. This panel was very informative for aspiring Manga artist who are looking to make a career of drawing. They show some of their art work as well. Which looked so awesome.

 

3. Inside The Alchemist Studio – 10 year Anniversary

This was my favorite Panel, they had Vic Mignogna, dubbed voice of Edward Elric, Aaron Dismuke, the original dubbed voice of Alphonse Elric, and Mike McFarland, dubbed voice of Havoc and director of many episodes. This Panel was packed to the fullest. It was just so great to see the people who voices the characters of the anime I’ve been watching for a loooong time. They told us their favorite scenes, favorite seasons, which characters they wish didn’t die and much more, while there we got to see two short clips the cast came up with together called FullMetal Flames and Fullmetal Fantasy.
There were many more panels, such as the Pokemon 20th anniversary, How to Write a Dub, Cosplay 101, Anime Literary Classics and Great Anime We’ll (Probably) Never Get. They had the Hyperbolic Anime Chamber which aired some anime for us to watch Naruto Shippuden, Ojisan and Marshmallow, World Trigger, God Eater and Erased just to name a few. They also had autograph signings from man cosplayers, of course the crew from FullMetal Alchemist and so many more.

The highlight of my day after the Fullmetal Alchemist Panel was the Cosplay Contest. You got to see all the creativity of the cosplayers. Some were eh and many were Wow. Below are some pictures.

 

Best in Show – Samurai Ninja Star Wars
1st Place – Terra Brandford – Final Fantasy 6
2nd Place – Soul Survivor – Fall Out 4
3rd place – Ciel, Madame Red, Grell, and Elizabeth – Black Butler

 

 

At the end of the day I was happy and satisfied. It wasn’t as big as other conventions, but I did like the intimate feel. I met many friends and fellow cosplayers. For a first convention Otaku USAa Magazine did really well. Below are some of my fav cosplayers walking around the floors.
