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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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???
