Diabolik Lovers Anime Review

Diabolik Lovers

Komori Yui is a positive-thinking girl who nevertheless is troubled by seeing spirits and experiencing poltergeist phenomena. In her second year in high school, she transfers to a new school—a night school for entertainers and celebrities—due to her father's work. There are rumours that vampires exist among the student body, and Yui ends up living with the six sadistic Sakamaki vampire brothers.
I watched this anime when I was in my reverse harem mood, when I also watched Kamigami no Asobi and Amnesia. It sounds like a more extreme version of the Twilight series, and I guess in a way you can say that, but then again you can say that with any young adult vampire media. This anime was made from a video game series and at times you can definitely see the moments when you can choose what you can do next if you were playing the video game. It wasn't too bad, but it was there.

Don't Quote Me: The End

I am going to stop posting don't quote me posts every week now, because I feel like it did not contain enough good content that I want to display on this blog. I felt like it was too easy and was a waste of time for the blog and myself. I hope to replace it with something else in the near future, but the meme Don't Quote Me will not continue on this blog. I'm sorry, and I hope you understand.

Inu x Boku SS Anime Review

The Shirakiin house's daughter, Shirakiin Ririchiyo, who has a complex about being unable to live independently and unprotected, feels the need to move out and live on her own under the condition of residing in the mansion named "Ayakashi Kan." In this mansion, only those who have cleared a very strict examination could reside in it, and for each resident, they are accompanied with one agent of the Secret Service (S.S.). Although Riricho has rejected the company of the S.S., while residing in the mansion she finds out that the agent dedicated to protecting her is actually the Fox Spirit.
The one word that comes to mind when I think of this anime is fun. It's extremely fun with eccentric characters that can be a bit inappropriate at times, but I think this anime has a really overall fun vibe about it. It's animation is about average, I think. It's not something too special and not bad at all, there's just nothing that makes it stand out of the crowd.

Manga Test: Hibi Chouchou

From Day of the River: Upon entering high school, the very quiet but extremely cute Suiren becomes the immediate center of attention among the boys…but one particular boy does not look her way.The story of a quiet girl and a quiet boy. A short, refreshing love story.
I would not say that this story is that much of a refreshing love story, but it is really cute and adorable to read. I read the first couple of chapters of this ongoing anime that started quite recently in 2012. My favorite part about this manga is how the two main characters are drawn. They have the cutest look and a bit different from your average shoujo manga.

Mangas I Read That Have Updated


Summary from
Nanase Sakashita is good at playing the role of Model Student but that doesnt stop her from taking an interest in Hana-kun, the schools delinquent. Hana-kun accidently drops a small box while sneaking around on the school grounds. When Nanase tries to return the box, Hana-kun tells her to keep it for its already to late to give it to the person he likes, who is this person??

This manga was updated Tuesday (July 15th), and it's currently in its not so happy part of the story where nearly no characters are glad to be in the situation and it's heartbreaking to read. I don't want to spoil anything, but this is a cute shoujo manga that I really enjoy. I'm not sure if it was just the scanlation I read or what, but I felt like the speech bubbles did not make sense to who was talking, and that the art was a bit lacking from the usual, though the last update it had was in February 0_0.

Bokura Wa Minna Kawaisou Anime Review

Based off of the original manga by Ruri Miyahara, The Kawai Complex Guide to Manors and Hostel Behavior is comedic slice-of-life anime that revolves around the main character Kazunari Usa moving into the Kawai dormitory complex due to his parent’s job transfer. He finds out that he is not only living in the same building as a perverted roommate but also his love-at-first-sight Ritsu Kawai.
I originally found out about this anime through a tumblr post, and thought that this anime was the prettiest thing EVER. Seriously, have you seen the colors and lights and shadows of this show?! Well now you have. It's what drew me into the show, because I hadn't been watching that much anime before this one (ahem, as of this year I mean). That being said, I have to say that most of my time with this show has been spent looking at the colors and animation, instead of the story and character.

New Manga I'm Interested In Spotlight

Kimi No Sei-Kizuato

Takaya and Yurina are back in this sequel to dive into their history. Back in kindergarten, Takaya had made fun of Yurina, and now that she's forgiven him in the present, what other things from the past will come to haunt her? Will they be able to resolve all their problems and go back to their peaceful lives...?!

I was pleasantly pleased with the first series, so I can't wait for this second series to be all out. I like the addition of new characters, and I like how their relationship is growing and shifting because of it. I hope to write a review of the first series soon. :D

Sword Art Online Anime Review

In the near future, a Virtual Reality Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (VRMMORPG) called Sword Art Online has been released where players control their avatars with their bodies using a piece of technology called: Nerve Gear. One day, players discover they cannot log out, as the game creator is holding them captive unless they reach the 100th floor of the game's tower and defeat the final boss. However, if they die in the game, they die in real life. Their struggle for survival starts now...
I found out about SOA through a tumblr picture that I thought was cool, but this was months ago, and I can't find it :(. My initial thoughts of this series was that oooh this seems pretty cool, and it has a bit of romance tied together with some really cool fighting sequences. It is really good...for the first have of the first season. I have to say around episode 7 or so, when things get into more shit than they were before is when I found out that this series is dragging itself out too much for it to be good. I wish, like most people who have seen Sword Art Online, that it would have ended around episode 7 or so too. There's no need for more unnecessary drama. It really ruined the experience of the show for me. I'm glad I marathoned it when all the episodes had already come out. I can't imagine the shock people watching had while it was releasing. The torture they must of have been through is unbelievable. The writer of the anime needs to calm down and finish the story without added more drama.

K Project (K) Anime Review

Set in a world where history has taken a slightly different course from the one we're familiar with, K follows the story of a young boy whose life is caught in a psychic war between seven kings.
Ashinaka High School is known for its unique setting: the entire campus is built on an island. Yashiro Isana, aka Shiro, is having lunch with a cat on one of the school rooftops. After his lunch break, Shiro goes on an errand for his classmate Kukuri to prepare for their upcoming school festival, only to be chased by some intimidating-looking men. 

I originally found out about this anime through a tumblr gif. That is probably where I find the animes that look the amazing most often. So it's safe to say the thing that drew me into this anime was the art style. I am in love with the colors and the world of this anime. It looks amazing and it makes me happy at how peaceful it is and you can clearly see the effort it takes to make something look this good. There are a lot of visual special effects that I have not seen in animes I've been watching, that really add to the experience when there are fight scenes.

I'm afraid of talking too much about this anime, because it's quite easy to spoil it. It is a thirteen episode shounen anime with kings in future japan that have supernatural powers. For instance, they can fight with fire. It's a bit confusing to understand if you're not paying close attention, but I don't think you'll get too lost if you keep following the story. I ended up watching the entire series in a day, and I was thoroughly entertained.

I thought of a new Monday feature I could have on the blog. It's called the Monday Manga Test, where I read the first few chapters of a manga and give you my initial thoughts on it, and if I would continue reading it. This week I read Keishichou Tokuhanka 007. It's catergorized as a shoujo romance, supernatural, and mystery manga.


The “Special crime investigation department 007″ includes the most capable and extraordinary investigators and Fuyuki, who also becomes one of its members, is very capable, to. And she is paired with Kuze, a cool and very bishonen detective. Their combination proves to be the most dangerous one the police headquarters had ever seen!

C'mon! Look at how long his neck is!!!
I read the first chapter of this manga, and my initial thought was that the art style was not for me. It reminded me of an old 90s anime style, even though the manga started in 2010 (translated anyways). I don't like how the characters are drawn, and for me, that's one of the most important parts of reading manga. I can't read a story if every time I look at the character it doesn't look 'right'. That's a bit vague, but I like the new way of manga and this old style with strange heads and really long necks don't do it for me.

Kamigami No Asobi Anime Review


This is a beginning of the curious school life with the gods and human-beings. One day, Yui is led to the world of gods to teach them about “humans”, but the school life is start with confusion. As Yui teaches about “humans” and “love” to the gods, they feel and develop a “love” or…?

This is a twelve episode long romance, shoujo, reverse harem anime with mythical gods. The story is a very interesting and unique one to bring Norse, Greek, Egyptian, and Japanese gods together and teach them a lesson-of course through the magic of friendship. The anime came out this year, and has recently finished. The anime is based off a game on the playstation portable that came out near the end of last year.

The studio that made the show is Brain's Base, who has also done Durarara!!,Brother's Conflict, and Amnesia, and My Little Monster. I tend to like their animes and I'm glad they're releasing more in the coming years. They've been around for more than a decade so they know the ropes, in my opinion. Their animes are usually really good or really eh though. :( They're still fun to watch just for the fun of it.
