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!

Drinking Anime for St. Patrick’s Day!!! (Pt. 1)

12 Mar

In honor of one of my favorite day of drinking, St.Patrick’s Day, I decided to do a two part post dedicated to the best drinking anime, episodes and characters!

Part 1

Top 5 Favorite Anime Characters That Love To Drink

#5. Chū, Yu Yu Hakusho

I swear that the fight with Chū was one of the best at the Dark Tournament! I mean anything that makes me think of Jackie Chan in Drunken Master rocks in my book lol! This dude is a awesome fighter on his own but the minute that he starts to drink his powers/skills increase tenfold. Dude is for sure an alcoholic lol but, no one dare says that to his face.

Best Episode:

31 “Stumbling Warrior”

Chū, Yu Yu Hakusho

#4. Cana Alberona, Fairy Tail

This girl would be awesome to go out drinking with! Not only is she a S-Class Mage but she can also drink all that she wants but never gets drunk! Now that I think about it drinking with her might not be such a good idea… Aside from the massive about of drinking (she generally consumes 30% of Fairy Tales liquor budget) she is one of the more serious members of the guild and often takes on a leadership role. When she is not drinking that is…

Best Episode:

“Fire Dragon, Monkey, and Bull”

Cana Alberona, Fairy tail

#3. Richard Moore, Case closed

Richard is a former police officer turned private detective who has become one of the most respected PI’s out there! Granted this is only with the assistance of Jimmy Kudo aka Conan Edogawa which is unknown to everyone. Richard is generally drunk, chasing after woman and making his daughter Rachel pickup after him but, thanks to the help of Conan, he has been branded the ‘sleeping detective’ solving some of the most difficult cases that have fallen on his door step.

Best Episode

67 “A Crab and Whale Kidnapping Case”

Richard Moore, Case Closed

#2. Shunsui Kyōraku, Bleach

Shunsui is the caption of the 8th Division and one of the more free spirited, flamboyant captains out there. He is usually seen sleeping, drinking sake, chasing women or chatting it up with his BF Jūshirō Ukitake, the 13th Division captain. The man can hold is liquor and hates confrontation but can fight like no ones business when it calls for it.

Best Episode

37 “Motive of the Fist”

Shunsui Kyōraku, Bleach


#1. Melissa Mao, Full Metal Panic

An ex marine and now the commanding officer of Sousuke and Kurz in Mithril, she commands respect from her subordinates and gets that thanks to her mad skills in electronic warfare and piloting an Arm Slave! She is a loud, crass, a ruthless-cut-throat insulter, and a heavy drinker and smoker. In other words pure awesomeness! I mean a chick that can drink most of the men in Mithril under the table and shoot the shit out of everything?!?! Whats not awesome about that!!! :c)

Best Episode

19 “Engaging Six and Seven”

Melissa Mao, Full Metal Panic

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!
