10 days of anime christmas FINAL DAY

Well i have reached the last day of my 10 days of Anime Christmas. Feel free to look at my previous entrires to see what was 1-9

Best Anime of 2013

1. Attack On Titan

It's not stop rollacoster of emotion kept it at the top even after the fact that its no longer on and with the release of the OVA and that cliffhanger ending definitely kept the fans talking.

2. Monogatari season 2


What there's more than two? Why yes person who might ask. Monogatari season 2 is basically a contiuation of Nisemonogatari. All of your lovable characters return. I have a bias against STUDIO SHAFT(fyi bad name for a anime studio great name for a porn studio) but as a fan i saw major flaws in the characters and the plot in this season. For one  if you look back you i wrote how they are starting to become predictable and you can see the plot coming from a mile a way.  I also wrote how i didn't like how they took loveable characters and totally did a deconstrution of them I.e Hanekawa and senjougahara. Despite all this i  still love the show. They still mangage to keep its witty comedic humor and up the art style. 

3. Kill La Kill

 What happens when you mix the movie styles of  Quentin Tarantino and the animation of Studio Gainax  you get Kill la Kill. Kill La Kill was made by Studio Trigger a branch of Studio Gainax so if some of it's art style remind you of Garren Lagoon don't be suprised.  This show it has the humor of Panty Stocking and Garter Belt at some moment but the action of a high pack action movie.  This is Studio Triggers first anime and from the looks of it they are on the path to success. Even before it even aired there was buzz around this anime. Currently its still airing but its still one of the best anime of 2013.

Thats all folk. That it for my 10 days of anime christmas.

You guys have a save holiday

10 Days of anime Christmas Day 9

Bad Game to Anime Adapation  of 2013

I feel as though i shouldn't have to say it but just in case you want me to. Its Diabolk Lover's

I acutally had high hope for this show.  I went in thinking it was going to be better than amnesia or at least take the amnesia route where the main character would interact with each charcter and they both would get a short little arc what i got was a cluster fuck of boring charcters, a basic ass bitch and a plot line that might as well could have been written by a five year old.

From the game play i seen on Youtube it had potential to be at least a 20 episode anime but nope. We were force to watch 13 episode of fuckery. 
If you could play the game don't subject yourself to this, this disaster!

This is bad not good bad. Just TERRIBLE.

10 days of anime christmas 7 and 8

Omg, Omg, Omg Im sorry. Im so sorry.

It's about 12p.m Est and i have fallen behind with the 10 days of anime Christmas. I'm sorry. I meant to do day seven earler but i wasn't in the mood too to be honest.

I guess i just put both seven and eight together.

Anime that stood out in 2013

Kyousogiga TV, FREE! and GATCHAMAN CROWN.  Everyone could see why Free stood out, but why the other two? Well Kyosogiga TV is a anime that goes in dept from give more information from where the five part ova left us off with.  I haven't finshed watching it but from all i know episode eight is where the real story line of this anime start the first seven just goes indept from the ova. Its still a good show which now has a cult like following.  Gatchaman ...I have a love/hate relationship with this show. For one it's a good show. Great animation. Decent characters. where i start to hate it is when it comes to the plot. IT'S FUCKING CONFUSING! ESPECIALLY NEAR THE END! anybody who say that ending knows that was a confusing ass ending. Either way these three stood out to me this year.

Best Game to Anime Adaptation

Dangan Ronpa

Do you like Phonix  Wright?  Do you like High school anime's ? Do you like killing your favorite charters? No? too bad because this is exactly what this anime was. At first when i heard this show was getting a anime i kinda spoiled myself with the death parts so when i watch this anime i kinda didn't like it but it grew on me. It was bad, but it was bad in a good way. People today are still making meme from this show. I remember when it was still airing i would host Dangan Ronpa Death Days and post the characters who would die on my tumblr.  It was kinda fast pace but i guess it kind of made up for the fact that the court room scene where terrible. Honestly i did a review about this show and i said if you just wanted to skip this show and play the game you should and i still stand by this statement but if you want to watch this show before playing the game to get a feel of each character check it out.

10 Days of anime christmas day 6

Most Underrated anime in the past 15 years?

Any of  Yoshitoshi Abe's Works

 Out of all of his works i feel the most underated one is a little series name Texhnolyze

This series is not talked about at all.  Most people know Abe from only Lain and maybe Haibane Renmei. Niea_7  rarely talked about but at least people are talking about it. No one talks about Texhnolyze. I kinda get it. It not really well knowen I just listed two of Abe's other works that only a few people know about. Texhnolyze is a slow pace anime but it was made during the end of the cyber punk era in anime(or at least the start of the end). There are episode where there is little dialoged between characters hell the first episode has only one speaking line in it the rest is just mostly action and movement. It does pick up and when it does you will have a range of emotion from confusion to emptiness. Near the last episode there was two episode that had a errie  limbo like feel to them. It was creepy and sad and the same time. If you have time check out episode 19 + 20 just those two alone.  Anyway if you are a old or new anime watcher check out any of Yoshitoshi Abe's works. They are the most underrated in the past 15 years

10 days of anime Christmas Day 5

10 days of anime Christmas

Most Over hyped anime of 2013

I mean this is the obvious choice. Attack On Titan. Eren look was the look on about the majority of all of AOT fans throughout the whole series. For fuck sakes the first episode his mom was eatin by a titan! Titan was a roller coaster of thrills, chills and emotion epically near the end. I hope they bring this back but im a bit scared because i really don't want them to fuck it up!  People are still taking  about this series and making meme's about Jean, Sasha, Levi, Eren and Armin on tumblr. This anime has every reason for it's over hypeness (if that is a real word if it's not oh well) It's has the three B's just with in the first couple of episode of this anime. BROKEN, BATTERED AND BRUISED!  I love AOT and i know the majority of the anime community love this series too.  This was the most over hyped anime of 2013 for good reason.

10 days of anime christmas day 4

Underrated anime series of 2013

Rozen Maiden 2013

I feel as though this show didn't get enough hype as it should have. This show is a reboot of the original Rozen maiden show that aired back in 2006-2007 but with more added content and better animation.  Granted this show did aired when Attack on Titan aired so that kinda took the lime light of of it so yeah but also i feel as though not alot of  people gave this show a chance.  I feel as though that if you hadn't seen the original Rozen Maidens or never heard of Rozen maidens then this seires then this series might have fallen by the way

Seriously why would you miss two dolls fighting like this?

10 days of anime christmas Day 3

A Anime series you couldn't finished?

I accutally have two i couldn't finished.

The first being Joshiraku.

When this show first aired i didn't watch it because i was watching something else at the time but i kept seeing gif's like this one on the 4chan anime forum. It wasn't  till like a couple of months till a year or two later that i actually gave this show a chance.  The show isn't bad it kinda reminds me of Azumanga Daigo if it was set in a theater. The Characters are likeable but the thing about it is they drag out one episode. Yes there are like 3 episode in one episode but it just feel like each episode are as long as fuck. I still watch the show but the reason i haven't finshed it is because every time i get around to it like either the new anime season starts or i am reminded on how long these episode could be.

The second  being Potemayo.

The same way i found out about the first show is the same way i found out about this show however it wasn't  untill 2011-2012 when i gotten sick and i was already caught up with all my anime that i was watching at the time that i decided to watch this show. It a cute little comedy about a middle schooler who finds Potemayo in his refrigerator and keeps her.  As to why i haven't finshed this show it's simply because whenever the new anime season stars i tend to forget about this show even when im caught up with all my anime that i have seen i tend to forget about it. Even though its a good show it's easly forgettable.

10 days of anime christmas day 2

Powerful Male in anime.

Now to most otakus or at least elder otakus this is a hand down answers Spike Speigle from cowboy bebop. He's a kickass guy who goes with the flow. For me this was going to be my answer as well but i wanted to talk about another powerful male from the same series.


"OH MY GOD"!  "WTF!" "Just why the hell did you choose a VILLIAN as a powerful character?!" Let me explain. Vicious is a powerful male because he never really get his hand dirty unless he is fighting which most of the time it's Spike. Not much is known about Vicious except the fact  he and Spike was in the Red Dragons together. He is very good with a sword  and is sort of a master of manipulation (see Jupter Jazz pt2). What makes him even more powerful is that he is the only person who can hold his own against Spike and push Spike to the point of death and at the end well, see episode 26. Besides Victor in the Cowboy Bebop movie(whats with villian that start with V's)  who also does a pretty good job with with holding his own against Spike nobody does it like Vicious. Vicious is also the only man who can mentally fuck with Spike as well.  When caught by the Red Dragons he willing let himself be thrown in their jail untill he was busted out and forced his lackys to kill the heads the Red Dragons and created the New Red Dragons.  He is a walking mob boss ,The best Villian, and a power male in anime i've seen so far.

side note- he's kinda underrated too.

10 Days of Anime Christmas

Ok. So originally this was going to be  the little buster refrain 9 and 10 review but  it's really hard to review it and not mention spoilers and i do not want to spoil those two episodes because those are key episode in the series epically episode 10. I might hold of doing a review till the whole series is finished. All i have to say is Kengo i feel ya man.

 This is the 10 Days of Anime Christmas!

I will explore the lands of anime and  rating  my top series from years past and this year anime giving  you  a indept  explenation behind every one.

Seeing how its the first day  let get this ball a rolling.

Day one

Powerful Female in a Anime Series  you seen?

I've seen alot of anime with powerful females. Remy from Black Lagoon comes to mind as a very powerful female even to alot of otakus. To me however the most powerful female in any anime series  would be Faye Valentine

What so powerful about her? you ask.  Well beside she holds her own with the bebop crew. She's  doesn't play victim whenever she does get kidnap instead she kicks ass and takes name(or money in her case). She is a modern day  Femm Fatale and reminds me of Fujiko from Lupin the 3rd.   During one of the episode we learn a little history about her background but despite learning the fact that she was cryogenicaly  frozen  and doesn't remembers a thing about her past she still doesn't let that fact slow her down.  Even now if you ask some male otaku's who have  watch this show they would put  Faye up there. Faye is a timeless, classic, character.  She really doesn't depend on the crew that much(when she does it to bail her out of a bad situation), She a seductress, and she very good with her fist and a gun.  Faye Valentine is one of the powerful female i seen in a anime series so far.

Diabolik Lovers

This is going to be a rant. I really just have too much to say to make this a proper review of this series because, ugh. anyway now that this semi disclaimer is out the way.

Let Go in.

Diabolik lovers. FUCK THIS SHOW!

No seriously. FUCK THIS SHOW! I had high hope when i heard this was going to be made into a anime but i kept my hopes reasonable because of what happen when the animated Dangan Rompa  but i thought that maybe it would be half way decent seeing how at least Amesia was good.


I really don't even know what to say about this show!  Somewhere along the lines the plot gotten lost, i mean i got the fact that she was one girl surrounded by 6 vampire guys and all want to eat her but the plot im talking about is WHAT WAS THE PURPOSE OF IT?! WE DON'T FUCKING FIND OUT TILL THE LAST 2 FUCKING EPISODES!!

 This show is so bad. Terrible. See Dangan Rompa Get a pass sure it was bad but it was bad-good. Meaning that it was bad in a good way. This show was just God awful.  Bad-Bad.

If you have the luxury to get the english patch or understand Japanese  PLAY THE FUCKING GAME!!!  Watching this show was pointless.At the end they want to pull out the Otome (now pick a guy) card AT THE END OF THE LAST EPISODE!! WHAT A WASTE.

This show had potentioal. They could have made each arc about the main girl interacting with one of the guys and not this cluster fuck of this shit.

By the way  what made this even bad is that the girl to me she was a basic bitch.  I mean there are some stupid anime characters in anime but they don't hold a candle to this basic bitch.

UGH!!! The only really characters i really cared for in that show was Shu  and Subaru and it took me till episode 6 to even learn everybody's name!!

Laito- pervertert and need to lay of the fadora
Ayato- overhyped and i really do not care for him
Reiji- He is so useless. I really don't see the point of having him in the series To be honest
Shu- He doesn't Give a Fuck and that why i liked him so much
Subaru-The only vampire with fucking comon sence but nobody is here for him but me.
Kanato- i was here for him but they didn't use his character enough

This should have just stayed a game. I hope they don't even try to animate the second game ~more Blood~ because i will not watch it!

This show is a waste. I hate this show. FUCK THIS SHOW!

Serial expermental Lain and Michiko to Hatchin

During Thanksgiving i did promise that i was going to rewatch Lain because i did plan to review it.  I watched it. I watch the Sub, I didn't watch it dub this time.  Well I went in it thinking that it will give me the same philosophical impact that it did when i first watch the dub when i was 13 years old which it did but, somehow this time it left a void. A unexpected void that took me kinda two to three days to get over.  Lain takes places in the future or the distance future but  the whole center around Lain is internet. When i first saw Lain it was when there was STILL a G4 and when G4 still showed anime. I usually  would stay up late to watch it.  Once it did in when i first saw it it left this Philosophical empact in me at the time that it stayed with me for fuck a decade. For this to be a show made back when the Cyber punk era was phasing out(1998-2005) in anime most of the dialog in this show is still paramount even today. "No matter where you go..Everyone is connected" from lain of the wired in episode 2 and when you think about it now. With all these smart phones, computers, apps, ect its like no mater where you go you are always connected.

Please for the love of god watch this show! you will know what i mean. I mean you might have a different view from me but please check this show out. To me this was Yoshitoshi ABe top work.


Ok. Next a SPECIAL DOUBLE BONUS REVIEW. This was going to be a separate review on its own but i decided seeing how i made you guys wait a while and im somewhat better to do a review i figure i might i well cram this one in here too.  Michiko to Hatchin, Michiko E Hatchin, Michiko and Hatchin depending on what your prefrence is when referring to this show, It's the only anime i've seen that takes places outside of japan(without it having to take place in space or another world) It takes place in South America specifally Brazil. This Show was made back in 2008. I've seen the Sub in 2011 and now that i have the Funimation Channel i've seen the dub this year.  The whole Plot Center around Michiko and Hatchin trying to find Hatchin Real dad. From the summary alone you might think its a pretty boring show. It's not it's actually interesting and kinda underrated.  Now which one do i prefere the Sub or the Dub? Both are ok. Both are good to watch. Im am surprised that Funimation did a great job with the dubs because i haven't been in love with their dubs for years.  Which one do i like however- Sub. It just something about it  that holds this grit to it which this show is and the sub cast does a good job of making you feel that way.

Again check this show out. I heard it was made by the they directors of Cowboy bebop and Samurai Champloo i don't know if this is true or not but this is a show worth a good look.
