MY REVIEW

I’ve seen many blogs write reviews about this anime. Not one has had any negative thing to say about this.

This is probably THE MOST BEAUTIFUL ANIME EVER. From the music, to the storyline to the characters. Nothing went wrong in this anime. Watching this anime made me feel like I was watching real life people.

Watching Kōsei deal with his mother’s death was so emotional. You felt for him. You see the anguish he goes through. You are rooting for him to overcome his trauma he has with playing the piano. The struggle he incurs while trying to play the piano and hear the notes makes you want to cry.   You want him to become the prodigy again. Then the love he has for Kaori is so genuine you really want them to be together.

Kaori’s free spirited attitude made you want to be her friend. How caring and sweet she was made you like her even more. You will like that she pushed Kōsei to overcome his fear to play the piano. When she plays her violin in her rebellious way made you feel the music even more. Her every movement. Her and Kōsei as partners was just simply amazing.

The music alone was just beautiful. You do not have to like classical music to love this anime. You are entrapped in the melodies that are played.

The ending is probably the most saddest thing in anime. I will not spoil it but you must watch to understand.

So, I leave you with this, Your Lie in April is an anime must watch. You can not go wrong with this show.

 

Thanks for reading.

Haru is soooo cute. He is such a badass and I love it. I like that he is so affectionate. So he is a bad boy that can love too. Awwww when he beats up people it’s so cool. So he can protect me.

 

SHIZUO HEIWAJIMA – DURARARA

Shizuo is so handsome and so angry. His strength is so crazy. When he throws poles and vending machines at Izaya it’s hilarious. He actually has a heart. He just doesn’t know how to show it. I love how cool Shizuo is especially with his sunglasses on.

 


ITACHI UCHIHA – NARUTO SHIPPUDEN

I mean what can I say. It’s Itachi. He is very intelligent, a skilled fighter and super cute. I love his whole being. I love his fighting skills. I love his serious nature. Everything about him is just right.

 

SEBASTIAN MICHAELIS – BLACK BUTLER

Sebastian is everything. He is what a man should be. Haha he is clean, he can cook, he can watch a kid, and he is soooooooo HOT! I love when he fights. I love when he smirks and is about to do something. I can never stop fan girling over Sebastian.

Dazai was just recently added to my list. He is cute, funny as hell and did I say cute, I love his outfit, The long trench coat and how it blows in the wind. I love how crazy he is. Also, when he sings his double suicide song it is so hilarious. When he tries to commit suicide is also hilarious. But when He gets serious I love it.

Goku holds a special place in my heart. He is my first crush because Dragon Ball was my first anime. When I realized how hot anime guys looked I became an avid fan. Thanks to Goku I can see the hot anime men. Hahaha I love Goku’s hair, his muscles and smile. I like that he is so goofy even in serious situations.

MAIN CHARACTERS:

 


GANTA IGARASHI – THE WOODPECKER

Ganta Igarashi is an ordinary high school boy, but that all changes when a mysterious red man flies into his classroom’s window and kills all his classmates and friends. The red man then plants a red diamond into Ganta’s chest. Ganta is framed for the death of his classmates and is sentenced to prison. He is transferred to Deadman Wonderland a privately owned prison which serves as an amusement park where the inmates are the show.
While at Deadman Wonderland, Ganta is faced with many brutal inmates. He meets a cheerful prisoner named Shiro who becomes his friend. Ganta soon finds out that the red diamond planted in him gives him power which is called Branch Of Sin. Ganta’s branch of sin he develops is called The Ganta Gun.

Ganta and Shiro end up in G ward where there are other Deadmen with the Branch of Sin.

Ganta is then put to the test to fight the other Deadmen to the death at the carnival corpse, while trying to escape to prove his innocence.


SHIRO- WRETCHED EGG 
Shiro is a bubbly and clumsy girl that is also an inmate at Deadman Wonderland. She is a childhood friend of Ganta even though he doesn’t remember. As a child she was experimented on by Ganta’s mother Sorae Igarashi and her adopted father Hagire Rinichirō. The experiments were used to heighten a person’s immune system and created the first deadman which is Shiro.

Throughout the series you see her protecting Ganta. She tries to assist in Ganta escaping so he can prove himself innocent.

SPOILER:

Later in the series, we find out that Shiro has a split personality which is called wretched egg. We find out that she has extreme powers and she is the red man that Ganta saw kill his classmates.

imageSENJI KIYOMASA THE CROW 
Senji is a former police officer. He is the first deadman that Ganta runs into at Deadman Wonderland. He is extremely strong. Renji’s branch of sin is called Crow Claw. He uses his branch of sin during the carnival corpse battles. He later becomes close to Ganta and trains him to use his branch of sin to perfect his Ganta Gun.

image
YŌ TAKAMI
Takami is an inmate at Deadman Wonderland. He comes off as friendly and nice but he is actually a scheming person. He is a spy in the prison and exchanges information for prison goods. He steals other inmates’ goods when he has the opportunity. He becomes friends with Ganta and heads with him to the G ward. (Spoiler) There he finds out that his younger sister Minatsuki Takami is a deadman.

MY REVIEW
Now I started reading this manga because the anime never got picked up for a second season. (I will not rant😒😒) So I took it upon myself to find out what happens next. OMG, all I can say is why wasn’t this popular is Japan. I mean the story is just amazing in the manga series.
The different characters and the development of the main characters and their growth is just so amazing. I like when you read about a character growing and understanding themselves. There are so many great characters and they all have some kind of crazy personality and emotions. I love that this series takes you back to the character’s pasts to understand why they are mentally insane. Just perfect for me.
The action on the pages pops out, I mean I feel like it’s actually happening when I read this. It keeps you on the edge of your seat.
The plot just perfect and it all makes since. From the past connecting everyone in the future. Just amazing.
I really do recommend reading this manga, especially if you saw the anime and need to know what happens. (If you haven’t watched the anime I say please do so hahah)

Thanks for reading 🤓🤓🤓
