Pt. 4!!!

Vandread

Vandread Christmas 1

Air Date: December 5, 2000 

Episode: Season 1, Eps. 10  “White Love”

Genre: Adventure, Comedy, Mech, Romance

My Rating: *** (3:5 stars)

Its christmas time on the ship and the women are going all out decorating! Even the captain is in a festive mood dressing up like santa. Just like most things on ship though, only the Womens really know about christmas. The men are clueless to what this holiday means and what it’s about.

Pypro trys to explain what christmas is with no such luck. The only ‘festival’ the men know of was more like war games lol. Head is of course quickly interrupted by Dita who comes flying into then and takes of with Hibiki. In the process of trying to get Hibiki to help getting things ready on the ship for Christmas, they happen to uncover a room that bad been hidden since the colonization times. In it they find a curious movie that the group decides to play throughout the ship. What’s even more curious is what’s on the tape! A man and a woman together! With kids no less! This sends the ship into an uproar. I mean a man and woman together?!? How dare they lol.

Vandread Christmas 2

Meanwhile Parfet is attempting to make a show machine for the big day. Which is not really going well. At this point Hibiki finds out that he is expected to give Dita a gift which leaves him baffled and of course pissed to have to do something to stupid in his mind. Even though head thinks it’s all stupid, he sees that Parfet is having issues with the snow machine and overhears BC saying that the comet they will be passing w have to do for snow this year which gives him an idea. Head heads out into the comet storm to grab some ice. It also happens that Meia is headed out on patrol. Of course bad luck follows and they run into a few enimes in the comets tail.

Back on the ship the rest of the men are learning that ALL of them, not just Hibiki, are expected to give the women they are normally around gifts! This sends then into a slight panic as gift giving is not something they do back on their planet. Dita is running round like a chicken with itself head cut off looking for Hibiki who is still in the comet with Meia fighting the enemy robot things. As the fighting is coming to an end and the countdown for Christmas has started on the ship, a shower of comet particals comes down around the ship looking just like snow.

Vandread Christmas 3

Since Parfet’s snow machine looked like it was a bust, it was a nice substitute! Turns out though that her machines turn on at just the last-minute.
Cute episode overall but it goes quickly. It’s a nice addition to your list though for Christmas animes!

5 Days Of Christmas Animes!!! Pt. 3

22 Dec

Pt. 3!!!

Chrono Crusade!

Air Date: February 16, 2004

Episode: Season 1, Eps. 12 “Holy Night”

Genre: Romance, Action, Adventure, Drama, Steampunk, Supernatural

My Rating: **** (4:5 stars)

The anime starts off with Sister Rosette saving little Azmaria  from an embarrassing Christmas pageant rehearsal with the other Sisters to head off to a meeting with Sister Kate and Father Ewan. There with Chrono they learn of news that 3 agents have died in SFO from investigations into Aion which leads them to believe something important is going to happen on the west coast or it has already started.

Chrono Crusade Holy Night 1

This of course leads Sister Rosette to beg that they send her to SFO in the hope of finding a lead to her brother Joshua. After a heated debate with Sister Kate, she is finally allowed to go to SFO. She is in such a hurry to leave that she doesn’t realize that everyone is actually sad about her going and on top of it she is leaving before Christmas. Father Ewan asks her to stay for at least Christmas and after seeing the teary eyes of the other Sisters and the ok from Chrono, she decides to stay for Christmas which makes everyone happy. Except for Azmaria who reflects on her past Christmas memories all of which are not happy ones.

Chrono, Rosette and Azmaria are sent into the city to try and get Christmas donations which of course leads to Rosette making an ass of herself like usual and embarrassing everyone else lol. She actually ends up cornering people and in a polite way forcing them to cough up cash. There she runs into Satella who turns out to be filthy rich and donates a wad of cash!

Chrono Crusade Holy Night 2

Azmaria  shortly after springs on the group that she does/doesn’t believe in Santa and that he never visited because she was told she was bad. This shocks everyone and they tell her there is no way she is or was bad. Azmaria realizes at that moment that she has people that care about her she needs to buy gifts for this year! Never having had people to get gifts for she is clueless on where to start. She asks the Sisters for assistance and they get her, well, nowhere! She finally decides to go window shopping in the city to find her gifts.

In the process of her buying a present she had being eyeing for some time for Rosette, she ends up preforming a good deed much to the surprise of the shop owner. Afterwards she runs into Rosette and Chrono who are out delivering toys to the kids in town. During this she starts to realize what Christmas really means.

Chrono Crusade Holy Night 3

The best part of this episode is the end where everyone throws Azmaria  a surprise Christmas party with a huge banquet to show they care. Awww! So cute! :c)

Drinking Anime for St. Patrick’s Day!!! (Pt. 2)

17 Mar

Continuing on with the Drinking Anime for St. Patrick’s Day we are now on part 2 covering some of my fav animes and episodes that focus on drinking, drunks and whatnot. :c) This is only a super small list and if I put in ALL of the ones that I like the list would go on and on lol! I also decided to be nice and link some of the YouTube videos for a couple episodes for your viewing pleasure. :c)

Part 2

Top 5 Favorite Drinking Animes/Episodes

#5 Bartender 

I would be remise if I didn’t mention this anime! It follows the story of Ryū Sasakura, a bartender in a hidden away bar in the Giza district called Eden Hall. Eden is a invite only bar that unless you know where it is and are invted you can never find it. Kinda like a speakeasy!

Bartender

#4 Bleach

Ep. 168, “The New Captain Appears! His Name Is Shūsuke Amagai”

Squard 3 has been without a captain since Gin screwed everyone over and decided to join up with Captain Aizen to turn against the Soul Society. Head captain Yamamoto has noticed the distention on the ranks due to the lack of captains and pulls up Shūsuke Amagai from the patrols. Since has been away from the soul society for so long being on patrol the members of squad 3 don’t trust him (or his right hand man Makoto Kibune). Izuru takes it upon himself, with the help of Rangiku of course, to plane a welcome to squad 3 party. As it turns out Amagai does NOT hold his liquor at all!

Part 1 (the best part is at 8:50 where Rangiku goes and grabs her stash of Sake hidden in Captain Tōshirō’s office!)

Part 2 (the start of the welcome party leading to Amagai passing out and well I not going to spoil the rest of it :c) )

#3 Bleach

Ep. 179, “Confrontation!? Amagai vs. Gotei 13”

At the captains meeting Amagai takes the initiative and ask Yamamoto if he may address the rest of the captains about an idea that he has. He proposes that the squads participate in joint training exercise together since he has noticed that there is cooperation within the squads but not will all the squads together. This of course upsets the majority of the captains that scoff at his idea with only captain Ukitake supporting him. Ukitake and Kyōraku decide to take Amagai  to dinner after the captains meeting where he vents his frustration. In his state of depression Amagai decides to drink a cup of sake and its allll down hill from there!

 Drunk Captain Shūsuke Amagai

#2 Azumanga Daioh 

Ep. 3, “Nyamo / Factional Rivalry / Yukari’s Here / Not My Fault / Forever and Ever”

Its not long into the Azumanga Daioh story before you realize that Yukari Tanizaki is not only a bad driver but also an ALCOHOLIC! My favorite episode is when Yukari invites her long time friend/ high school rival/ fellow teacher,  Minamo “Nyamo” Kurosawa, out to the bar after school to get reacquainted with each other and ends up once again being jealous of her since she is the more ‘popular’ teacher. This leads to Yukari trying to make herself more popular the next day at school with her students that fails big time, which then leads to her going to Nyamo’s house were she proceeds to break a present of Nyamos ‘by accident’. Accident my ass… This subsequently leads to them going out to the bar. Again. Where more jealousy ensues and Yukari gets piss ass drunk lol!

#1 Cowboy Bebop

Ep. 12, “Jupiter Jazz (Part 1)”

Generally any of the episodes are filled with drinking by Spike, Faye and Jet but this episode is one of my favs. Faye has gotten sick after having ran off to Callisto from the Bebop where she stole all the money and the antifreeze from the cooling system. This is where she meets Gren a saxophone player at the Blue Crow. I wont go into what happens to save you from a major spoiler but, I will say that that there is some gender issues and Faye is found handcuffed!
