ok so iv posted some other stuff on this blog but i decided to do something different and maybe make a new blog for what i wanted to do but thats on the back burned but i digress on what i came here to do. for now but i figured that today at 230 am i would talk about an anime iv watched many times and enjoyed just last night i started watching it again and by the title you know what it is call. Samurai X this is both the prequel and the ending the the series of Rurouni Kenshin

this anime is rather long if you go from Samurai X to Rurouni Kenshin back to Samurai X. it may sound confusing with how i just worded it but its not you start with Samurai X (DVD) with Trust and betrayal this is the prequel this is about 4 episodes long i think they are 30 min each i cant remember. Now if you have not seen it i dont want to let the whole story out but heres how it kinda goes on Trust you find out how kenshin meets his master as a small boy and till hes about a teen than you find out how he earned the name “Battousai the Manslayer” you also find out other information on what kind of role he played in other parts of the story that you learn in Rurouni Kenshin then we move over to Betrayal this dvd tells more of the end of the war before he becomes the wounding swords man we all know and love you also find out about the woman that Kenshin loved before he meets Kaoru. after Betrayal you would than move right in to Rurouni Kenshin now there is a movie for Samurai X but i honestly don’t know where that is suppose to take place im sure i can look it up but i dont really want to you can really watch it anytime during the movie no real major characters show up if i remember right after you watch Rurouni Kenshin you would have one last one to watch its called Reflection this is the close to the whole show that you really dont get the ending is not what i wanted to happen to be honest but it is still a good close out to the story and to me it does make sense yet again i dont really want to spoil what happens it just does not seem fair to spoil such a good story that you should see yourself.

Length and Feelings on this anime

if you watch everything its 101 episodes and a movie thats somewhat long but with some of the animes now such as bleach and naruto both of them last i looked are 300+ so this is something most people could do in a few weeks if they had the time. i enjoyed this anime a lot i am saddened to say that i have not taken my time to watch truth to reflection with watching Rurouni Kenshin and than finishing with Reflection that is on my todo list once i am able to

Shaman king November 12, 2011

So this has been something i have been reading lately its been able to hold my mind on the thoughts on what s going to happen next. now i do plan on watching this one too not just reading it. so far i am really enjoying the manga so i hope when i get to watching it the anime will be just as good 😀

story line

now for anyone that knows nothing about Shaman King the back of the book says something like the time has come for the next Shaman king to be crowned in the shaman fights…. blah blah blah the back to me makes it sound boring to be but what ever the book follows Yoh Asakura

this kid in the pic here pretty much what he wants to do is be Shaman King to live the easy life and do what he wants to only and to do that he needs to gather spirits to fight with him and than kick the but of other shamans in like this shaman games tournament kinda like the dark tournament from Yu Yu Hakusho. during his journey he runs into all kinds of people some become his friend others become his enemy.

Length/Feelings on this manga/anime

the length on this is not bad at all the manga is only 32 Vol. and is 285ish chapters the anime is only about 65 episodes long which i think really is not bad iv done worst and i know others have too. i have a feeling that this is one that i will be able to finished with out any problems becaues the story is so good and i have been able to keep reading as much as i can and im making a good dent other people with more time im sure can power house right the the end of this with out any problems but for others that have lots to do this is a night lite read pick up when you can or id guess watch a episodes or two and than be done with it for the day.

 

.Hack//Root November 11, 2011

.hack//root is the third installment of the .hack anime series. this installment is much better then the 2nd one Legend of the Twilight this one has nothing to do with .hack//sign or Legend of the Twilight this one followes a story they is differant but still has a better twist to it.

Story

in this installment the main charater is Haseo.

a new player to the game The World hmmm this seems kinda like iv seen this before oh ya i did what a surprise they started Legend of the Twilight and that other .hack type show that came with the orginal games. well anyway in the first episode our hero gets PK’ed which stands for being killed by a player killer for the people that dont know.  when Haseo is about to quite a man named Ovan the leader of The Twilight Brigade offers Haseo a place in his guild whos purpose in the game is to find the Key of the Twilight. i think i have seen this before too hmmmm. i dont really wants to give too much away but it follows a small group of people the main plot characters consist of Haseo, Ovan, and Shino.

Length/Feelings on this anime

for this anime its about as long as most short storys would be with 26 episodes. this one has a much darker story to it which i found held me in to start till the end i feel this one is much better than .hack//Legend of the Twilight and that it has held its own to .hack//sign with the story being much darker than i thought it would be i would give this one an 8 out of 10. for //root i did not expect has much from this one as i thought i might i think that Legend of the Twilight might have jaded me in my thought because i thought it would suck compared to //sign but all in all i think this is worth the watch.

 

PS to my readers

i am sorry about this post i started writing this back in may and i dont really remember what i might have been writing about or even ranting about at the time thanks for reading 😀

.hack//Legend of the Twilight May 2, 2010

.hack// legend of the twilight is the second installment in this anime series this installment takes a different approach compared to the last anime .hack//sign. this installment seems to follow the games more than to be a second chapter or session to the series thus far. the overall look and theme this anime the artist used look more like chibi which was not a bad.

story line

well this anime starts off in episode one with Shugo and Rena wining a contest and the grand prize is player skins that look like kite and blackrose the legendary dot hackers from the popular game series now when Shugo and Rena join the game they start on an adventure meeting people , doing in game events, and leveling up like one does in a MMORPG  on their adventure some kids think it would be fun to mess around with Shugo and Rena and pull them into a conflict of The World

Length/Feelings on this anime

this anime is 12 episodes long which is fair for more not too long nor is it too short but i find that sometimes the story snags in places and makes this anime feel alot longer then it should be if you are in to the Chibi type anime’s then this is for you but i did not enjoy it like i enjoyed .Hack//Sign i would give this anime a 6 out of 10 thought i was able to watch it thought i just did not enjoy it as much as i hoped i would

Anime Boston May 2, 2010

well since iv not posted in quite a bit i guess ill make my first come back post about anime boston which i will be using AB for short. this event as most people know is a national anime con this con takes place on the east coast new england area.

many things about AB made my stay every enjoyable. I greatly enjoyed many of the costumes from the cosplayers thought on a very sad note most of the very good cosplays that looked very hot where worn by girls that are underage but for some that ment nothing. well time to move to the next topic on as i said i had a great time up at AB but thought i had a great time there was much i am regretting for instance not being able to see the Video Game Orchestra lead by Nobuo Uematsu. sadly i missed this event due to wanting to see many other panels and the fact that the line was very long at id say 3 pm when the event for the VGO was at 5 or 6 pm. i am happy to say that i spent much of my time walking around seeing many good panels looking at all of the cool stuff there was in the dealer’s room as well as the art that was in the art area. another enjoy ment i had gotten out of going to AB was the food if anyone was going to go up to an AB make sure you don’t eat at the food court 3 times a day i made that mistake once before you pay close to 40$ on crap food go out take the T and find a place that looks good you will spend just as much on food that is 100 times better

AMV

the anime music video had lots of great entries that i was glad to see my favorite win which i think everyone should see so i will be nice and embed it right here for ya

this one was in the other section of the AMVs and I’m very happy it won

i have so much id like to post about AB but i think there is way too much to talk about and honestly i think i covered what i wanted too i got to see the cute lolicon’s great cosplay had a great time with all my friends and walked around for hours on end trying to see everything i could.

Hyper baby(manga) March 1, 2010

so im at work right now was bored trolling managa fox to find something to read when i found hyper baby now iv only read the first chapter in it but i got to say this is so god odd from what i gather of the storyline so far is that this woman got married then her husband died on her a month later she tried to kill herself but the only reason she dint was because she found out that she is with child most of the first chapter takes place in the hospital where the main character is seeing this boy who no one else can see now where i come from you’re seeing a ghost or your crazy in this case prob both but what ever now the 1st chapter ends with the girl who is the main charater walking into her sister’s room with the baby floating in the air with this boy she keeps seeing like astral projection off this baby

now why im reviewing this i dont know i guess i felt the need to post something since its been days since i have but this looks like a shity manga so im just going to stop reading it.

from what i read i give it a 3 for keeping my attention for the chapter and having me review it just for shits and giggles

Basilisk February 24, 2010

so this anime is on my top 10 list and I feel like not many know of it so i felt the need to write a review on it. This anime is a mix of a what feels like different genres it has a love story and it has some heavy action based combat fighter along with many others.
To start let’s go right to the story line it’s about 2 ninja clans the Kouga and the Iga the two clans have been at war for generation. with in the first episode you have the 2 clans fighting each other in a battle to display their skills to the shogun and you know what im feeling nice to embed the video here for you

well after this fight the shogun seems like he want to shit his pants so he come up with a cleaver way to end the war between the two clans he has the leaders of the clans write on a 2 scrolls the names of the 10 most skilled ninjas they have. and you might be asking your self why would they do this sword well that’s simple the winner of this little challenge decides the fate of their clan the loser’s clan is killed off pretty much. but the real twist that shows up in Basilisk is the fact that the next in line for the Kouga Gennosuke

and the next in line for the Iga Oboro

are in love and that’s where the love story comes in each one needs to decide what they will do fight for their clan or maybe defect to the other side. sorry guys but that i will not spoil for you just watch it and enjoy

Length

the length of this is 24 episodes which as u guys know is not bad i find it’s a good length for this one because it gives them the room to stick to the story and not get side take with so many filler episode

feeling on this anime

well i found this anime rather kick ass i dint mind the love story i think that made the ending to be better because of it the all around badassness of the show was great and the fact that they dint skip on the story nor the blood just makes it even better that why this is on my top 10. the grade im going to give this is a 10 if i went higher thats just not fair

just on a side note for anyone one that wanted to know they did make a live action to this anime its called Shinobi : Heart under blade id have to say its kinda shitty so don’t bother looking into it unless you really really want to i was mega disapointed with it

Detroit Metal City February 23, 2010

so i was talking with a friend of mine a few weeks back some of you know him as oballer and he told me about Detroit Metal City and let me just say this is a must watch i would have to say this its a 10 and on the plus its only about 6 and a half episodes long they are 15 min long and 13 of them and let me tell you its funny im happy oballer told me about it. well before i start getting off track ill start with the story line

story line

this show follows Negishi they don’t really give his age but id have to guess he’s about 23 maybe his back story goes that he was a son of a country boy his family owns a farm i think it was but he goes to the city because to try to become a famous pop singer but for some reason he joins the band DMC a death metal band as the leader. most of the sings are about killing, rape and a lot of other things. during the show Negishi gets into many mishaps trying to live a life outside of being in DMC mostly when it comes in counter with the girl that he loves from his past. thought out the show DMC takes over negishi life more and more each day for example in one of the episodes negishi is in the park singing his pop songs and some kids who are fans on DMC are messing with him as a result he changes to his  DMC alter ego Krauser now in this park they at the Tokyo tower and krauser out of impulse starts humping Tokyo Tower as he’s humping the tower its lights come on and the fans start yelling something along the lines as “OH the tower is such a whore it likes it” the weather then changed and it started to rain and the fans then tell “OH man the tower came its such a whore”. now take this small part i told you about and and have this happen at lest 3 or 4 times an episode over about 6 and a half of them.

well this is normally where i do the length of the anime but iv said that a few times so ill just move on to how i feel about this anime and well i loved it i found it to be really funny just to see what kinda of stuff happened to Negishi now honestly id like to tell you more about it but i think that will kill some of the episode so i wont but i will say i give this a 10 and this did make it on to my top 10 list .
