Spring Anime 2017 First impression Honorable Mentions



Part One

Part Two





Shuumatsu Nani Shitemasu ka? Isogashii desu ka? Sukutte Moratte Ii desu_ka?/ What are you doing at the end of the world? Are you busy? Will you save us?

 It will always be refered to as SukaSuka because that titled is long as shit. Long titled aside it follow a guy who is chared with taking care of weapons. Turns out the weapon were some girls all along. I found the first episode boring and the long title was off putting to me but i still found it interesting to some degree im gonna give it the three episode treatment before i decide to drop it completely.

Kenka Banchou Otome Girl Beats Boys



Girl Beats Boys  follows Hinako Nakayama who gets tricked by her twin brother into going to a all boys school in his steed. There she finds out that its the worst school in all Japan. Everybody there fights to see who is going to be king of the first years (or the school). The first episode see her kick this guy who saves her after she was about to get her ass kicked during opening ceremonies . After she tell the guy her name (she is using her bros Name ) he was ready to kick her ass because apparently her bro is a bad ass or something. This is a short clocking in at only 8min but it does well with getting its story across.


Nobunaga No Shinobi Ise Kanegasaki-hen/ Ninja Girl and Samurai master Ise Kaegasaki arc


The second season of Ninja girl and Samurai Master. Follows Chidori as she help Nobunaga in his quest to make a better Japan. If you haven't seen the first season you will be a bit lost because most of the character who are introduce in the first play a important role in the second.


Cinderella Girls Gekijou/ Cinderella Girl Theater


This  IdolM@aster Short that Follows the daily lives of the Cinderella Idols. They switch from full size to Chibi size. Its a cute short and if you are fan or have watch Idolm@ster Cinderella girls then you might wanna check this out.

Spring anime 2017 first impression part 2






Check out part one here
Part One


Follow what is aring here  http://anichart.net/Spring-2017   and here https://www.livechart.me/spring-2017/tv




The Laughing Salesman NEW/ Warau Salesman New


This show can be a bit creepy and it creep factor mostly comes from the Laughing salesman itself. It follows The Laughing Salesman Name Fukuzou Moguro who goes around granting peoples "dreams" that are in their hearts. Mostly he goes around fucking up people lives by giving them false hope or if they don't heed his warning will just make their life's hell. I don't know if this is a remake but most of the episode are stories of people he meets on his journey around Japan and how he goes out of his way to "help" them. If you don't like the old art style it has  or not a fan mystery/horror anime then this is passable.



Kabukibu!/Kabuki Club



Back at it again with the CLAMP anime. Its been a while since we had a anime from CLAMP. Kabukibu! Follows Kurongo Kurusu and his friend Murase Tonbo as they try to get member to start a Kabuki Club. CLAMP is going to CLAMP so of course there were people with disproportion body parts. So far the story isn't bad and the characters are likeable.


Tsugumomo



Tsugumomo follow Kazuya Kagami a highschooler who carries around his mother obi in backpack. After being attck by a possessed wig and falling off the roof a spirit comes from the obi name Kiriha and protects him.  Both from that point on have to fight spirts/demons possessing items or in its recent episode a whole place.Its mostly a supernatural comedy anime. Also Kiriha reminds me of Ryoko of Tenshi Muyo and i don't know why.


Hinako Note



Not much to say about this one. Its another Moe slice of life anime for this spring season. Hinako Note follows Hinako
Sakuragi. A country girl who moves to Tokyo in hopes of joining the high school Theater Club. Upon arriving she meets Kuina Natsukawa a girl who works at a bookstore and loves books so much she eats the pages(no joke) and Mayuki Hiiragi a girl who often gets mistaken for a child. Hinako finds out from Chiaki Ogino who is a part of the Theater club and is also the landlady for the place Hinako is staying at (and who looks alot like Lain in the face department)  that the club is on hiatus but encourages Hinako to start her own in the meantime.  The show is cute and it reminds me alot of Is the order a Rabbit? 

 Sin:Nanatsu no Taiza/ Seven Mortal Sins



So there is another anime by the same name and no its clearly got nothing to do with that. Seven mortal sins follows Lucifer(yes really)  as She is cast out of heaven and at first lands in a church and meet a nun in training name Maria Tousaka. She help her before the Lucifer decide to give maria a bit of of her blood before falling to the coldest part of Hell. There she meet Leviathan Goddess of the sea and Super Sonico reject. From that point on both decides to fight the sin's. A group of girl who make up the seven deadly sins. At the end of the episode a injured Lucifer and Leviathan return to the church Lucifer first fell too and meet up with Maria again before Lucifer decides to kill her for no reason. the first episode was ok. Typical ecchi yuri fodder but i hope later episode are more action pact that the first. Also this is another anime based of a toy/Figurine Line.


Honorable Mention coming soon

Spring Anime Season 2017 first impressions part 1







With the Winter season over its time to usher in the Spring anime season and it has started off with a bang.

as always you can check whats airing here http://anichart.net/Spring-2017 or here https://www.livechart.me/spring-2017/tv




Attack On Titan season 2/ Shingeki no Kyojin season 2


The one everyone's been waiting for, for about a billion years has finally aired its season two and it wasted no time getting back to the action. This was met with a bit of controversy from a small handful of AOT/SNK fans because instead of having 24-26 episode  it will have only 12 and that pissed them off. Either way im glad its back and it looks like its going to be a very good season. Also more weirdly shaped and meme filed titans.


Kyoukai No Rinne Season 3






Takahashi has a strong fan base seeing how this manage to get a season 3 in this day and age. Nothing much happen in the first episode of season 3 typical hi jinx and what not ,but what we can expect from this season is a actual fucking Villain and not rivals this time.


The Royal Tutor/Oushitsu Kyoushi Haine


This anime kinda surprised me because i wasn't expecting it to be this funny. It follow a small  tutor name Heine Wittgenstein who is tasked with the poor job of teaching the kings four sons, The Von Grannzreich Brothers. The first episode was funny Heine tries to teach them but Leonhard one of the Von Grannzreich bro's tried to lead a revolt but the bro's had other thing to do thus leading Heine to try to teach him . Heine eventually blackmails him into taking a popquiz but reward him with his favorite sweets. I will have my eye on this show. Also did the person who animated diabolik lovers animated this because while i was watching the animation was way to simular to DL idk maybe it just me.

RE:Creators 


Another interesting show,it made by the same person who made Black Lagoon.  The first episode was very action pact  from the start. This anime asked the question "what if your favorite anime characters came to the real world and started beating the shit out of each other?'. It has a FSN feel to it as the main character Souta mangages to bring his favorite anime character Celestia Yupitilia to the real world only to have Gunpuku no Himegimi  a mysterious woman who is able to wield a million swords at once. Both of them duke it out in the first episode until another character intervenes. The fights in this show are well animated and the sound track to this show is very good.


Frame Arms Girl 


Busou Shinki but with a femal lead  and more fighting. That what this anime is bascially. Its based off the toyline of the same name it follows 16 year old Ao Gennai who recevies one of these dolls named Gourai. She first assumed it was a gift from her dad for entering High School but it was given to her buy the company to test out how Gourai operates. This anime Uses CG for the Dolls and regular animation for Ao. The fights between Gourai and Sylet was ok but the CG was kinda distracting. So far its a good show mostly for the fights.


Pt 2 coming soon.

Rewrite Season 2 Moon Terra Hen Final thoughts







Being honest, I didn't like the first three episode of Moon Terra Hen. I know the first three epsisodes of any anime series is key for any watcher it helps them decided i they are going to keep watching or drop that anime. I didn't like moon terra hens first three episodes BUT, I did keep watching because i watch the first season of rewrite and while Moon Terra Hen was way better than the first season, the first three episode are meh.

After the first three episode Moon Terra Hen mostly focuses on Kotarou and the correct timeline on how he actually met Kagari and all the events leading up to how the world was destroyed the first time. In season two we see Kotarou relationship with his parents  , Guardian, Him going to war, Kotarou becoming a traitor in order to help Kagari spare the planet by joining Gaia while being apart of Guardian and Him killing ALOT. Honestly season 2 is more bloody than season one so there that









Story-8
Characters-9
Sound-8
Overall-9



Season two ended with a happy ending which is a surprised seeing how the majority of KEY'S work will leave you a balling mess of tears or in the case of Charlotte  rage quit. It manage to wrap up everything nice even though there was a few minor plot wholes left unanswered Season two had a good ending that wasn't sad or infuriating. The only thing i did have a problem with was during season two there would be moment where Kotarou would have these popup VN choices and i found it pointless cuz it not like we were playing the VN. I get it. It was probably made to see what choice Kotarou was going to make but it was stupid because he was always going to make the right choice.

Nanbaka season 2 final thoughts









One of two second seasons that happen to be better than the first. Nanbaka follows four main prison inmate living in the prison and their daily life there. Soon it focus on Number 15 or Jyungo  who happen to be a bit different than the others there. He happen to have the power to turn his hands into giant blades. Blessed or cursed with this power he struggles internally with the fact that he's different but it takes his inmate friends to reasure him that he's still the same guy they love.

The second season main plot take place around episode 6. After Yamamoto and Rock eats snack given to them by a new guard and a new character Houzuki Sanzou they become hypnotize and attack anybody in their way. Yamamoto attacks Hajime and Rock attacks Jyungo. After subduing them Ninja boy( Tsukumoto) tells them it's something wrong in building 5 so after that info Jyungo and Hajime decide to investgate and Uno and Nico decides to tag along for the lolz.  Of course something was wrong. Not only is building 5 empty but it was a trap. Hajime get caught and is sent the lower level of the building. Turns out that Inori, Building 5 main guard went rouge but he un release Ruka  a new character and a fomer guard at the prison before he was locked away as well as Enki a fomer guard who killed a Inmate with his bare hand and was locked away and he is also Samon Goku building 5 head supervisor elder bro.


Since most of the anime takes place in building 5 we get to see more fighting, the reason why nico needs his meds all the time. He has a split personality and if he doesn't take his other personally with fight to the death. To Trois and Honey actually being fucking useful. The building 5 Arc is the best if you are looking for more action and less drama.


Plot- 8
Characters 7
Jyungo has a unnessecary internal conflict half-way through the Buliding 5 arc which kinda pissed me off.
Sound-8
Overall-8

It would have a higher score but just like the first season it ends on a cliffhanger. I think its getting a OVA but im  not sure if its going to close out the building arc and if it doesn't idk  if we are getting a third season. Either way  i did enjoy the second  way more than the first.

Bokksu January box






Bokksu is a montly subcription box which unlike any other box on the market offer premium Japanese snacks.



I recently decided to try a box and it just happen to be the January box with theme was MARU or Circle
And true to its theme of the month most of the snack in the box were in the shape of a circle.



Snacks

Baumkuchen



 One Original and one chocolate Baumkuchen  or German tree cakes. These were my favorite from the box. These were so soft and fluffy. These paired well with coffee and the tea that was included in the box

Gaufrettes

 One chocolate, One Strawberry and One Vanilla. These are very thin and crispy cream filled sandwiches. I wish they would have given two chocolates ones. These were very flakey but it was creamy and good.

Ka No Michi


Another snack i wish would have gave two chocolate Ka No Michi is a hard-ish cream filled sandwich. I say hard-ish because it not hard but it borders on hard and soft. It came with two Vanillia cookies one chocolate and one Matcha. These also paired well with the tea that was include in the box.


Cheese Manju

I though i was going to like this one. I like cheesy snack but this one was more bready and the "cheese" flavor was kinda off for me so i ended up throwing both away.


KAISEN USUKESHI KASEN SENBEI


 Gyo-kuro Green tea

 This came with three tea bag and this tea had a sweet flavor to it. It was the only thing that wasn't circle theme as the tea bag was a triangle shape.

Packaging-10

Shipping-10
It Came 2-3 days after i had put in the order to receive the box

Overall-10

I enjoyed what i have gotten in the box and was suprise with how neat everything was packed and even though i did throw away two of the items i recieved i still enjoyed everything i gotten in the box.
I know this review is a month late but  Bokksu recently open up a market place  where you can buy items from their past boxes and 4 of the items from this box are now in the store 
 Click on the link to visit the market place

Winter Anime First Impressions Honorable Mentions




First impression Pt 1

First Impression pt 2





One Room 


It's a Short that follow three girls in a apartment complex talking to the main character who is a guy who is never seen but we as the viewer are put in the first person perspective of the main character.  i guess its suppose to be a slice of life short it was really enjoyable and the character design are made by the same person who made Hentai prince and stony cat.


Nyanko Days 


This short follows a Highschool student Tomoko Konaagi and her three cats Maa, Shii and Ruu, This short is just too cute for words.



Miss Kobayashi Dragon Maid/Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon


The newest one from KyoAni, It follow Kobayashi normal office working gal who one day stumbles into the forest drunk and free a sword from her new Dragon maid Tohru even though she doen't remember it and due to her actions Tohru decide to devote her life serving Kobayahi. Its mostly a Yuri harem and while it is funny its lacking something  to keep me at least watching weekly.
