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!

Anime List for Halloween!!!

31 Oct

Happy Halloween!!!

Halloween is my FAVORITE time of the year! With that said I figured that I would post a list of some of the Anime that I have seen that I think fits perfectly with the holiday! They are in no specific order and I will also do reviews of them later. Like way later down the road since I still have a ton that I have yet to finish and post as it is! :c)

Witch Hunter Robin

  • Awesome witch anime! This is one of the first animes that I saw and watched from start to finish.

Shikabane Hime

  • Great anime about the undead that fight the undead!

Gantz (the movie)

  • Saw this when I was running the movies in the main room at AkiCon 2011 and this was good! Odd and creepy but good for Halloween. People that were supposed to die end up getting sucked up into the mess where they are given another chance at life only if they compete with other people in the same situation by killing off aliens.

Tokyo Majin

  • Short 12 eps anime about the reborn dead. They are not quite brain sucking zombies but the undead that have crazy powers.

Soul Eater

  • Deals with Lord Death, witches and has a general Halloween look to the design. This is not really a horror anime but more comedy and death.

Hell Girl

  • Damn creepy little girl that will grant your wish in exchange for her taking your soul and ferrying it to the afterlife in hell.

Death Note

  • Deceit, lying, scandals and murder! All based off a notebook!

Karin

  • If you want a vampire movie that is cute, this is the one! She is part of a vampire family but she is a bit different than the rest  since she doesn’t take blood she gives blood!

Blood +

  • Vampire

Blue Exorcist

  • Satan, demons, hell trying to rule earth… AWESOME anime!!!

High School of the Dead

  • ZOMBIES!!!

Shiki

  • Undead and vampires

Trinity Blood

  • Alien type vampire

Paranoia Agent

  • A little kids that goes around attacking people with a golden baseball bat that are in some sort of mental crisis. Not your usual blood and gore but its a trippy anime based off of peoples fears.

High School Of The Dead

29 Oct

Air Dates: July 5, 2010 – September 20, 2010

Episodes: 12

Genre: Horror, Zombie, Action, Girls With Guns

My Rating: **** (5:5 stars)

With Halloween just around the corner I figured I would cover one of my fav horror/zombie anime’s High School Of The Dead!

This is one of my fav zombie animes! Heck I would even say this is better then some of the zombie movies!!! The mix if girls kicking some serious ass, guns, zombies and more zombies, makes for a fun show that is guaranteed to entertain anyone that watches it!

The main story, aside from the obvious zombie outbreak, is that there is a group of misfit teens that when the zombie out break hits their school end up teaming up with their school nurse to get to safety. With a arsenal of homemade weapons ranging from your basic baseball bat and wooden pole to a semi automatic nail gun, they make their way out of the school to one of the buses! They manage to escape to only find out the outbreak has not only hit the school but the whole town (and later discover the whole world has been infected). They decide to try and find their families but, as the story progress the outlook is bleak on any survivors. The town is over run and everywhere they turn is zombies. Yay! Zombies! One of the main characters, Rei, decides they should to go to the police station since her father is a detective. They all agree thinking that if any place was safe, the police station would be it.

As they fight through town and countless zombies, they end up getting separated when they stop to help at a bus that crashes in front of them. The bus is infested with zombies and quickly goes BOOM and up in flames. Rei and the other main character, Takashi, are other the opposite side of the bus when this happens and the rest of the group along with the bus is cut off from the two. They separate ways and agree to meet up at the police station.

Takashi ends up finding a bike and then him and Rei take off to fight their way through town. Both teams now are fighting for their lives nonstop to get across town and across the river to meet up at the police station. Once both groups manage to cross they meet up again before being able to get to the police station. At this time Shizuka, the school nurse, remembers that her friend has a place nearby and they take refuge there. This was a HUGE score for them because she had forgotten to mention that her friend was a member of the prefectural police Special Assault Team so her house is freakin loaded with weapons along with a military grade hummer.

After a much needed break, fan service moment for the boys, stocking up on supplies and weapons, the team heads off to try and make it out. As they are leavening they find a little girl that was just orphaned when a house of survivors killed her father thinking he was a zombie when he was only looking for a place to hide. The group saves the girl and they are off once again.

More fighting, more blood n gore, more zombies!

The group ends up next at another main characters, Saya’s, house. Well its more like a mansion and a compound then anything! Her father is a politician and her family is wealthy so they have been able to make a stand at their ‘house’ and fight off the zombies. They let everyone in and being the parents that they are, try and make Saya join their group that was going to try and break out of Japan to find a safe place. Saya and co. feel they have managed well so far on their own and dont like the way her parents are treating them (like kids that don’t have a choice in the matter) and running the compound. After a zombie attack that broke through the barrier and the kids fought side by side with the parents/adults, Saya’s mother and father gave her their blessing to make her own choice. Granted going with her fam would have been a not so bad idea since you know they had ALL the supplies and a small freakin army, but you have to respect the fact that Saya and everyone wanted to go forward on their own to find their own refuge.

Once again more fighting, more blood n gore, more zombies!

The shows ending blows cause all they do is show them outside of a deserted mall and looking like they were happy with their choice to stay together and make a start on their own. Rumor has it though that they are making a season 2 so that ending might not be so bad lol!
