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)

Anime For Valentines Day!!!

14 Feb

Anit Valentines Day

So I have to apologize. Its been more than a minute since I have been on here. :c) I have had a major case of writers block/side tracked by MAL. I have been working like crazy on 2 clubs (yes there is a shameless plug coming up) the Anime Bloggers Union and the Pacific NW Anime Club. Trying to take over both from people that haven’t been running it since like forever has been a task and a half lol!!!

Since I felt bad about neglecting my poor blog and the mini handful of readers that actually read this I decided to do a half and half Valentine’s Day Anime List! The reason I am calling it half and half is because half will be for you lovely dovey, card buying, oozing sappiness people. The other half will be for the people like me that think Valentine’s day is a joke of a holiday. I mean hell, you don’t even get the day off and I have to have people at work bug me for candy and I have to see pink everywhere. I HATE PINK! Yeah I’m a girl and I freakin hate pink with a passion.

To start the list, it will be for you people that love to love and love all things pink and red! :c)

1. Ouran High School Host Club

  • I love this anime! Too freaking cute and the different themes that the club puts on is awesome. The love story in it between Haruhi and Tamaki is also cute but really doesn’t come to a head until the end of the anime.

2. Honey and Clover

  • This a longer anime that follow a group of student through art school, graduating and work. There are numerous love triangles in this anime.

3. Fruits basket

Fruits Basket

  • One of my favorite animes and also features a live triangle. Great anime to watch but a word to the wise after the last episode you need to pick up the manga at where it left off to get the full ending.

4. Clannad and Clannad After Story

  • Supposed to be one the best love story anime’s out there. I have only started watching it and its cute. Don’t know if it would call it the best…

5. Paradise Kiss

  • Love, fashion, deceit, fashion, craziness and did I mention fashion? This was an awesome anime that seriously brought a tear to my eye with the ending.

6. Nodame Cantabile

Nodame Cantabile

  • Love in the music word mixed with college life. You HAVE to watch the OVA in addition to the anime to get the actually ending. Odd how they worked that one but the story is cute and worth waiting to watch the OVA.

7. 5cm per second

5cm Per Second

  • This a short story anime film that is broken into 3 parts. With each part follow the main character through different stages in his life and the stages in his relationships.

The second half of the list is for you fellow anti-valentines day folks!

1. High School Of The Dead

Hish School Of The Dead

  • How can you beat a full worldwide outbreak of zombies?! GREAT relief to the valentine’s madness! There is even a love triangle mixed in!

2. School Rumble

School Rumble

  • Could have put this in the first half but the constant madness that is School Rumble makes it more of a laugh riot than anything else. The mistaken love interest and love triangles make for a very funny plot line!

3. Shikabane Hime

Shikabane Hime

  • Priest falling in love with dead girls that roam the world killing off demons and the possesed? Another great relief from the valentine’s madness lol!

4. Shiki

Shiki

  • A story about a girl that is obsessed with a boy she meets and haunts him even after she dies. Throw in vampires and the undead and you have a great non fluffy romance/stalking story.

5. Dance In the Vampire Bund

Dance In The Vampire Bund

  • A love story between a werewolf and vampire surrounded by death and lies. You also get a story of a fight between vampire clans and a fight to the death between beast people.

6. Big O

Big O

  • No we are not talking about that O! The story revolves around a city that has lost their memories. All that is left are these big mechs that feel the need to beat the crap out of each other. There is also a love triangle between the main character, his android and a woman whos group she works for is working against him.

7. XXXHolic

xxxholic

  • Your avegage nerd that also happens to be plagued by seeing yōkai and ayakashi. He is in love with one of his classmates and does everything he can to fight the yōkai and ayakashi in order to get them to leave him alone so that he can try and pursue her. Well that’s at least the story in a nutshell from the romance point of view.

I hope everyone had a happy and safe valentines or anti-valentines day!

My Rating: ***** (5:5 stars)

Its the last day of the year and everyone is doing the annual new years cleaning at the house. Kyo and Yuki are fighting like usual and the girls are also over to the house to help. Once again Shigure is under the gun from his editor to comeplte his latest book that is due by new years. While he is trying to avoid his editor, he ends up breaking the screen door. Again! Meanwhile during the craziness and fixing the screen, Tohru is planning the new years dinner of traditional soba noodles and new years cake. Arisa reminds her that she might want to get to the store to buy what she needs before its too late. Yuki ends up going with her and breaking the news that they wont be home for new years. :c( Instead they will be at the head house since its a family tradition that all family members gather at new years to celebrate.

Tohru hides her disappointment that the boys not being home on the way back from the store. Once they arrive home Shigure is doing everything he can to avoid writing while at the same time pissing his agent off to no ends! Also Saki, who has some strange obsession with cleaning the bathrooms, has left them ummmm… girli-fied shall we say. This of course makes the boys choose to hold it instead of going to the bathroom with all the roses and black lace that she left behind.

Saki finds out that the boys wont be  home for new years leaving Tohru home alone. Later, when Shigure trys to get the boys ready to leave for the main house, neither want to go for some reason or another. He ends up trying to get Tohru’s help by explaining the meaning of new years at the main house including the zodiac banquet. Yuki ends up explaining despite his personal reservation against his family, he doesnt want to leave Tohru alone and it only dawns on Kyo then that they would be leaving her alone for the new year. Tohru realizes the importance of the night to the Soma family and encourages them to go. On the way to the head house Saki runs into the boys and trys to guilt them into going back and staying with Tohru. She was able to succeed and the boys race off to make sure that Tohru was ok. When they arrive home they see that Tohru had been crying and realize that they had made the right decision in returning. Shigure ends up having to explain to Akito that the boys will not be present for new years. This does not please Akito at all. Back at the house Tohru, Kyo and Yuki are on top the house ready to make their new years wish with the first rays of light from the rising sun of the new year.

I swear this episode always brings a tear to my eye!
