here’s another promising new anime for all the supernatural action lovers out there.
it’s about a boy named shino who was a survivor of a neighboring town that burned down. since there are a bunch of rumors about why the village burned down, he and the others that he is close to are shunned by the other villagers. Shino was also given the blade called Murasame which is extremely powerful. everything peaceful in his life is disrupted when the imperial church tries to take murasame and force him to go to the capital.
the anime had a pretty slow start but i think that within an episode or two it’ll become really good. the art is great and there’s a lot of action to come, i think. anyways, i think that supernatural lovers should at least try watching the first episode and maybe the second when it comes out
i realized that i really need to post more action/shounen stuff so here’s a nice shounen manga
it’s about a guy name Akiba Takara who is the vie president at his school, good-looking, and seems to have everything going for him. one day he gets cursed by the goddess Kanou that makes him unable to leave Kanou City until he is able to fulfill a hundred people’s wishes. that means that all his life plans about going and studying tokyo would be ruined if he doesn’t break the curse. then he receives a weird task of finding the god hidden in his school within a month or else the entire world will end. Now let the game begin….
it’s pretty good. the story’s alright and the art is great so shounen lovers should read this!
i’ve been meaning to do a post on the fate stay night/ fate zero series so here it is! along with the music that i like
since fate zero is still airing, i’ll just summarize the anime.
it’s about the holy grail war where seven magi are chosen by the holy grail to fight for the wish that the grail will grant. in order to fight each other, the magi summon servants (mostly strong heroes of the past) and try to beat each other mentally and physically.
there’s some humor, a lot of action, and the story is irresistable. there is also a little bit of romance that makes everything better so everyone who needs a good anime should check this out.
im also in love with the openings and endings so here’s the list:
the first opening is oath sign by LiSA (Yui from Angel Beats)
the first ending is Memoria by Eir Aoi (the video is amazing, it shows the servants and their pasts. and the song is catchy in a good way)
the second opening is to the beginning by kalafina (if you haven’t seen my previous post, i LOVE kalafina! great song, perfect harmonies, it’s just amazing so definitely give this a try)
the second ending is sora wa takaku kaze wa utau by haruna luna (it has been stuck in my head all week! i love the lyrics, the music, and her voice! try this song too if you like nice melodies)
i was watching kuroko no basket and having a blast when i realized that i didn’t even post anything about the new spring animes. i’m sorry for that. so here it is:
of course kuroko no basket
Fate Zero part 2 (i’m so happy it came back! don’t ever end!)
hiiro no kakera
Jormungand (https://hilarypham.wordpress.com/2012/01/11/jormungand/ OMG! THEY MADE AN ANIME! I CAN DIE HAPPY!)
Tasogare Otome x Amnesia (i’d give this a 3/5. if you’re into more shounen stuff then try this)
this is a shounen manga with lots of action and supernatural stuff
the story follows tsuchimikado harutora who is from the famous tsuchimikado family that has brought forth powerful onmyoji in the past. although he’s part of the family, he was born from a branch family and didn’t inherit the power to see spirit energy. natsume, his cousin, was chosen to succeed the family since she’s really strong. one day, she stops into town from tokyo and drags a bunch of trouble with her.
there’s a lot of action, some romance (not that great in the romance department though), and great art so read this!
i just started this about ten minutes ago and i’m loving the story and art! it’s a shounen with romance but not quite shoujo yet and there’s a LOT of action
the story is about these two countries (the commercial union and the clauven empire) that are at war and the commercial union is currently winning. then the leader of the commercial union announced that if the princess of the empire marries him, there will be a ceasefire. the princess, etoile (i wanna have a name that pretty!) and her guard rolan have been together for ten years and so when she asks him to save her, everything gets messy
there’s romance (what i hope is romance) and lots of action and fighting so if you like shounen stuff, read this
i’ve read few manhwas but this was my favorite. there’s an interesting plot, amazing art, and romance.
it’s about a girl named yoon ai who does really well in school but is actually poor since her mom died and her dad left town, leaving them with a lot of debt. one day, she hears a rumor that at the abandoned amusement park there’s a magician who lives there and is supposedly crazy. soon, she runs into the magician herself and everything about her life starts to turn around.
if i could be as cool as that magician, i could die happy ;). check this out if you want a nice romance and a bit of mystery in your day
here’s a great shounen with magic, a lot of gore, and fighting but it’s good
the story is about a country that was taken over by this huge ass called Demonas and he made the entire country suck then tried to forcibly marry the princess. the prince of the country supposedly died a few years before but at their wedding, he comes and summons this huge creature which kills Demonas. There have only been three chapters out so i’m pretty sure it’s about how Lucas, the prince, gets back his power and kills bandits around the country.
the art is great, lots of action, and some of the guys are really hot (see the end of chapter 3 😉 )
this a good shoujo/shounen manga with vampires and something i’d like to consider romance
it’s about this guy named Gile whose family was killed by the original pureblood vampire and tried to become one of the twelve apostles, and orginaization who protects the world from vampires, and kill that original pureblood. one day he gets partnered up with a girl named luna who is mysterious and has a witty attitude. as they work together and get to know each other better, it seems there’s more to luna than he had first thought. (that’s as far as i’m willing to say without spoiling the story)
the art is absolutely gorgeous, luna is a really cute character, and you’ll love the story
for all you shounen and action lovers out there but there’s also a little bit of romance for the shoujo lovers out there, here is a really great manga with a lot of fighting and really cute characters
the story is about this society that is really corrupt, there’s mafia everywhere and the government is really weak. but there’s an organization that’s merciless and famous for their agents who kill without hesitation, the Last Enforcement Organization (aka Red Raven). then there’s the daughter of a mafia boss but she wants to turn her group into a good group and she meets this weird guy (hey, i thought he was cute 😉 ) and after a few things happen he turns out to be a Red Raven agent.
lots of action and what i really want to call romance but definitely give this a try
this has to be in my top favorite shoujo mangas ever. it’s sad, funny, and there’s an anime!
the story follows the book of friends that is a collection of numerous youkai‘s signatures and gives the owner of the book the power to control all those youkai. then natsume, who can see youkai, inherits the book from his grandmother who was notorious for defeating youkai back in her day. when he was younger his parents died and forced him to be moved from relative to relative and each of them ended up not liking him because he could see youkai. after moving with the fujiwaras who are kind and let him live with them, he starts to meet youkai and gets to know them more
it’s a touching story and the art in the manga is a little bit messy but i just love this so definitely check it out
man, i love historical-shoujo mangas. and here’s agood one that has a totally badass heroine who beats up guys using either a wooden sword or even a hoe.
the story is about kasane who is your average high school girl but she’s also really good at kendo. one day when she saves her brother from getting run over by a truck, she grabs on to a sword and gets transported back to the warring states era. after a few things happen and she saves a group of prisoners from a castle using her skills, she gets caught up with Oda Nobunaga‘s rise to power. (for those of you who have no idea what i’m talking about, nobunaga basically started the unification of japan in the 1500s and was a military guy so he conquered a lot of japan). then everything gets pretty entertaining when she gets pulled into all the fights and gets involved with revolts.
the art is really good, you’ll love kasane, and the story is amazing so definitely check this out
for all those who like intense fighting and a strong female character who is funny and a bit insane, you’ll like this.
it’s about an underground arms dealer and her group of accomplices who are all colorful characters. then a new member joins her group and he’s just a little kid and hates guns. the story follows their dealings around the world and it’s a good read.
the art is good, the characters are awesome, and the fighting scenes are amazing so read this!
this is another great shoujo that has really hot guys and a strong female lead so i loved it
the story was about a country’s princess and the queen that always made her stay indoors and not really do anything. one day a note arrives saying that the infamous three beats will come and steal the treasure that was left with the princess by the former king. when those thieves arrive, a lot of stuff happens and it just turns into a touching and hilarious story.
if you love a good shoujo and love strong princess characters, you’ll like this one
some other mangas by the same mangaka are nageku shinigami (a great shoujo oneshot but it gets really sad and it has a really sweet romance) and hadaka no oujisama (a funny oneshot about a rich kid who is forced to go and live in an apartment and learn to live humbly)
