With Summer anime season not to far behind us, The Fall anime season has already begun
Juuni Taisen/Zodiac Wars
Ousama Game/ King's Game
This season Gore fest, King game follows a group of High School Students who must Follow orders given to them by King unseen but orders are given to them Via text messages. Failure to carry out said orders would result in the student dying in a horrible way. The first half was just to set up characters and the plot. The second half was a outright murder fest. 10 students died in the first episode alone. Kings game is very interesting so im looking foward to see what else it has in store.
Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou/Girl's Last Tour
This follows Maika Sakuranomiya as she struggles to find employment so she can save up to study overseas due to her having a sadistic look to her eyes. On her way to a interview she bumps into Dino a owner of a Coffee shop which the servers have to play a stereotype (i.e Tsundere, imoto, Sadistic ect) after not getting a job (due to her sadistic look in her eyes) Dino see her again and offers her a job in his coffee shop which she takes. So far it not bad and having coffee shop workers play stereotypes like they work at a maid cafe is kinda interesting. So far its a good show.
Pt 2 Coming soon

The late comer to the summer party Owarimonogatari season 2 is the conclusion to the Monogatari anime series. It was a Two day event. Being honest this was a two day OVA. Its technically a OVA. Owarimonogatari season 2 is shorter than any of the other monogatari anime with a whopping 3 episodes.
So the first part continues after the last episode of Kyomimonogatari. Basically Kyomi is set to hell and meet Mayoi there. She is tasked with guiding him out of hell. It turns out all of this was planned by Gaen with the help of Tadatsuru (main bad guy from Tsukimonogatari) to extract Shinobu from him and making him human again. Before leaving hell he takes Mayoi with him back to earth and Tadatsuru tell him the name of the person who hired him to kill Kyomi which was Oshino Ougi.
hitagi rendezvous was basically Kyomi and Senjogehara going on a date. This half was mostly use to set up Ougi dark. The only good part to me was when Ougi enters Kyomi dream and they talk until he wakes up. Im glad they deiced to make Senjogehara have long hair again. Also she has a driver license so that was cool and interesting.
In Ougi dark the first half was Gaen, Kyomi, shinobu(in her kiss shot form) and Mayoi dissucssing plans on how to take out Ougi. Gaen decides to make Mayoi god of the shrine Nadeko once took over when she was possed by the snake in order to restore some kind of balence in that town. Gaen says he original plan was make Shinobu the god of that shrine but plans fell through when Nadeko got involved. Gaen then tells Kyomi Ougi's true identy and that he alone must stop her. It turns out Ougi is Kyomi. Ougi was created to judge Kyomi and all his deeds and actions. Kyomi now knowing this confronts Ougi in the old cram school from bakemonogatari where Oshino Meme was located. Once Kyomi reveals Ougi true identity the darkness shows up to take Ougi. Kyomi ends up saving Ougi and losing a arm in the process.While the darkness is still there waiting to take Ougi Oshino Meme shows up along with Hanekawa. Meme end up making the Darkness go away by acknowledging Ougi as his niece thus acknowledging her presence.
The whole series ends with Kyomi, Senjogehara and Hanekawa graduating High school and Kyomi telling Ougi (who is basically a ghost like oddity now) that no matter how much he change he still gonna be himself.
Hitagi Rendezvou was kinda boring being honest. Yes her interaction with Kyomi was nice but plot wise if it didn't help set up Ougi Dark i would have skipped it.
Mayoi had the most character development she seem more mature in this series. I like the fact that they decided to make Senjogehara have long hair her character seem the same as in other series. Mayori had the most development as a character in my opinion
Weird animation choices were made in this series but it still was good and to be expected from SHAFT
This was a nice conclusion to the series overall. Hanamonogatari is the True ending timeline wise but Owarimonogatri season 2 was a good ending overall. It wrapped up every loose ends nicely and it was good.

See what is airing here and here
Nora to oujo to noraneko heart/Nora, Princess and Stray cat
Musekinin Galaxy Tylor/Irresponsible Galaxy Tylor
This show has been met with a bit of controversy from fan of the Original Irresponsible Captain Tylor. This show takes place 2000 years after the original show and follows a banjo playing guy name Banjo Ukei Tylor and his space dandy cease and deist letter robot partner Yamamoto. The show is only Three minuets and the last three episode sees them meet a girl name Goza 168 sei a princess from a now long gone linage, getting a space ship to travel the galaxy, and meeting Dolly who i guess is possessing the ship they are in. While not a bad short the controversy comes from many fans from the original show which was 26 episodes and ran for 26 min instead of 3 expecting this to be some kind of ending or better ending to the original series than the OVA they gotten long ago. This show isn't really for fans of the original i guess. Its more trying to get new fans to watch the original series.
That it. What are you checking out this season?

Part one here
Keppeki Danshi Aoyama Kun/Cleanliness boy! Aoyama Kun
This follow a soccer player name Aoyama who is a massive germaphobe . He doesn't like being touch by anyone or anything that he deems is dirty. The first episode was funny and wasn't what i expected from this show, mostly giving its technically a sport anime as well, but i like Aoyama character and his interaction with his team mate Zaizen.
Centaur No Nayami/ A Centaur life
Jigoku Shojo Yoi no Togi/ Hell Girl Fourth Twilight
This one is kinda baffling, not plot wise plot wise it follows the same as the last three season. for the most part it looks like Emma Ai the series main protagonist will be challenge by a new girl who sees Emma Ai as not necessary. She seems to be some kind of supernatural being like Emma but on the good side. The last Hell Girl season aired in 2008 so it kinda odd that they would make a Fourth season now in 2017.A perfect time to air the fourth season would have been 2010-11 but that's just me. The fourth season it actually pretty good so far and im actually interested in this good vs evil premise they are offering this season.
Honorable mentions coming soon.

The summer anime season started and there are ALOT of good anime series this season. While spring only had a good handful of series worth watching it looks like we will be spoiled this season.
As usual see whats airing here and here
Do you like anime's about gambling? Do you like anime's that about gambling that has a batshit insane main female character? well that basically Kakegurui. It follows Yumeko Jabami who transfers into a school where wealth rules and gambling decides students fate. The first episode shows Jabami owning Mary a girl who challenged her to rock, paper,scissors .The whole show is very interesting and i'm interested to see where it goes especially seeing how its about gambling in high school.
Ballroom e Youkoso/ Welcome to the Ballroom
Katsugeki:Touken Ranbu/ Action Picture! Touken Ranbu
I didn't expect this show to be as funny as it is. It follow Yoshiko Hanabatake a girl with a unhealthy obsession with bananas and her classmate Akuru Akutsu or A-Kun and their hijink with Hanabatake obsession with banana's. This show is only 10 minute. Does its job with making you laugh in only 10 minutes
Cucked: the anime That's basically it. That what this anime is. If you even read a little (like i did) of this you know that is what this anime is. Bullshitting aside it follows Yuma Okazaki(pink hair) and her childhood friend Houtaru Mizushina(black hair) both have boyfriends but Houtaru can't stop fucking with(literally) Yuma even though they both have boyfriends!! Their boyfriends know nothing about them kissing behind their back either. First episode ends with Houtaru giving Yuma a french kiss because she got jealous that Yuma boyfriend gave her a kiss so she decided in her mind to one up him by giving Houtaru tongue with her kiss. This is another 10 minute anime even so it manages to tell its story in that amount of time.
Part 2 coming soon.
Sunday, June 18, 2017
The most anticipated and hyped anime has come to a end. Attack on Titan season 2 was one of the spring season best anime. From the first episode to the last it did not hold back on the blood shed and deaths.
The first half of the series see the group trying to plug up a hole in the wall only to find out that not only Ymir is a titan but Reiner and Berthold tare titans as well. The later half sees the group trying to get Eren back after Reiner and Bertholdt kidnaps him and a unconscious Ymir reason are vaguely explained in the show.
The last episode basically see everybody trying to dodge titans that Reiner is throwing at the group in his titan form in order to kill anybody trying to stop him getting Eren back (at this point the group gotten him back) People dying and getting injured from the titans and Eren and Mikasa confronting the titan that ate Eren's mom. Hannes showed up and decided to take revenge on Erens behalf seeing how he's still tied up and Mikasa is still injured. Mikasa end up untying Eren and Eren tries to go into titan form but for some reason can't this time. Of course Hannes had to be the last (important) death of the show because the titan ended up killing him.
All seem lost and while Mikasa give her exposition to Eren while he down and out on why he give her hope and what not, This motivates him once more and he decides to take on the titan in his human form because fuck logic i guess. Somehow this works and he gains some weird new titan super power that ables him to control all the titans in the area as they stop attacking everybody and eats the titan that killed his mom and Hannes. During that time everybody decides to get the fuck out of there
Reiner wasn't having any of it though and decides to chase but Eren with his new titan power has the titan attack Reiner. Later in the episode we see a recovering Ewrin who has a beard for some reason with Levi and Pixis in a room when Hange and Connie enters. Hange tells everybody the shocking discovery she made when she researched Connies home town. The titans were residents of Connie home town meaning the titans are human. Of course Connie is in shock because this prove that titan on his house was him mom. Levi ask was all his years wasted killing nothing but humans but Hange said that it was just a theory for now.
The show ends with the group on a wall in uniform with exposition about how the residents from wall Maria has only a week left of food and the person who is operating the giant gorilla titan coming out of it. We still don't know who it is though as they only showed a shadow of the person.
Unlike season 2 we won't have to wait long for season 3 as season 3 was announced for 2018. This was better than season one but for it to have only 12 episode it was amazing and did a good job at adapting the manga. I still do think Ymir, Bertholdt, and Reiner being titans is lazy writing but the whole Titans are human do put a interesting twist on everybody killing them freely.
Thursday, May 11, 2017
If you are only watching the anime and haven't read the manga i think its safe to say that it would be easier to figure out who ISN'T a titan at this point.
A quick recap of 1-5. There's a titan in a wall, we are introduced to a tall ass speaking titan Connie hometown got wrecked and a titan(probably his mom) was on his house, And Ymir is a titan. I know im simplifying things but that just about what happen in 1-5.
In this week episode the gang is on the wall to seal up the hole the wall titan made. One of the scout informs Hange that there is no hole in the wall. Hange is understandably confused but decides to have everyone leave seeing how there is no hole to fix anymore. Reiner and Bertolt pull Eren to the side to tell him that they both are titans. So casually too. Reienr is the Armored titan and Bertolt the Colossal titan (the tall skinless one from the first season). Eren of course is skeptical of Reiner claimes seeing how they both just gotten back from a massive titan attack and had to be saved by Ymir in titan form before she got wrecked and is now in a coma.
Eren tell Reiner that hes just stress and that he and Bertolt couldn't possibly be those titan's. He tell Reiner that he need to get some rest. This some how flips Reiner Kill switch and he and Bertolt both decides to turn into titans not before they are attack by Mikasa who was just standing a few feet by. This only helps them become titans faster as they don't need to bite themselves to do so and shock by this sudden revelation Eren is stunned by it all.
So Eren while still upset and confused decides to take them on in his titan form. So Next week is the massive titan battle between the three.
To be honest the whole "this person is a titan" is Lazy yet interesting writing. Its Lazy because like who else is a titan why not make the whole squad full of titans? it interesting because it does build drama and suspense and it catches the view off guard on who is actually a titan.
Aso Bertolt always look like he was hiding something so him being find out he was a titan wasn't really that shocking because he always look suspicious.
I can't wait to see what going to happen during the massive titan fight between the three.

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?
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.

Check out part one here
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.
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 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.
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
