My Review on anime "Katanagatari".

0 comments
Anime entitled as Katanagatari is unique in its own way with its 50mins per ep when you watch it its seems you are watching 2 episodes at a time...

Katanagatari tells us a story about full of comedy swordplay which takes place in Edo era (17th - 19th century) there we got this deadly sword style called "Kyoutoriu" but this stale isn't an ordinary sword fighting which we see in every swordplay animes this fighting style doesn't use swords infarct the ones who know this style can't use swords because they doesn't know how. 1st episode takes us to this inhabitant island in which "Kyoutoriu" style master was banished with his whole family after some time he died and left his son as the head of the family and a successor of "kyoutoriu" style his name is (Yasuri, Shichika) he lives on this island with his younger sister (Nanami). One day unknown woman who calls herself (Togome "The Strategist") enters the island in search for master of "kyoutoriu" style the banished warrior ... but it didn't go as she wanted. Later on they talk alot and after the whole talking , explaining things they enter into action zone which takes place another half of the episode. Action seems pretty interesting because fighting styles ar not so plain ... Bare handed battling , cutting ... is pretty awesome. After the fighting ends there are some comedy moments which changes the mood from fighting to laughing ... or something else. They leave the island leaving (Nanami) alone and up to the journey!.

Besides all the good points Katanagatari has its down side which is too much talking even when in action (i mean in fights) they keep on talking nonsenses and it takes some time to start fights ... that was bit annoying other than that its pretty interesting new anime.

Pluses:
Long episodes
Funny character cast
Kind of unique art style
Nice fighting
Nice comedy

Minuses:
We will need to wait longer for episodes
To much talking in the middle of actions
To much wait to get into action

Overall anime is pretty good at the moment if it doesn't get bad later on... If you got time you can watch it but remember one episode is 50 minutes ...

My Review on anime "NANA"

0 comments
When i started watching first episode of this anime i heard these words "Say Nana.... do you remember when we first met?" and with those words i was captivated by this anime.

Anime NANA tells us a story about two girls who are soo different but also very similar and about their painful life experiences alongside all happy moments they encountered. At first when we see the main characters (Two Girls) we think that they are soo nothing a like but after that we hear that they have the same names , same age and both going to Tokyo but On other hand they aren't very similar because of their characters one is clumsy , irresponsible and kind of stupid the other is very responsible , smart and knows what she wants. Whole story seems painful from the beginning because of such aspects as separation with the ones they love and being cheated on in front of your very own eyes.

Nana is more dramatic , painful anime then joyful or comedian ... because u see main characters mostly suffering then enjoying them selves even at the end there are more suffering then joyfulness ...

What else i could say about Nana that its really how should i put this powerful anime which can really bring you to tears at some points but it also shows the development of two people feelings and how they gradually becomes almost inseparable ... even at some point there are jealousy which seems surpasses friendship but this isn't shoujo-ai so there are no such things ...

Nana also is a beautiful music anime with interesting music implanted in it ... which makes anime even more interesting to watch also without this music element it wouldn't be so interesting to watch because it holds most of the story in it.

Well for me who loves drama and romance i loved this anime along side every other but for me it just had too much drama i would loved to see more romantic moments then pain all around the place ...

My Review on anime "Durarara!"

0 comments
My Anime List Reviews

Hmm how could "Durarara!" be described if it was only one word ... I would say "Mysterious" because of that feeling which leaves you wanting for more.

This review is based on only 3 eps cuz there are only 3 eps at the moment.


Story: Well "Durarara" At the beginning tells us a story about a boy named Ryuugamine Mikado who comes to this place Ikebukuro Central without even knowing whats going on there ... I described "Durarara!" as mysterious because of such aspects as "The gangsters are afraid of an urban legend called "Dullahan", a headless rider, who rides a black motorcycle without head lights or engine sounds." and there are more things bound to happen along side that headless rider roaming around ... On the first day Ryuugamie Mikado sees many things and understands that living in Ikebukuro isn't going to be easy nor boring and also little bit dangerous. We can only guess whats going to happen later on because i think in this anime many things are bound to happen.


Art: Well new Urban style art is pretty cool present Japan and ikebukuro are awesomely done.


Characters: All characters are very unique has their own aspects as headless riders , and super strong guy who can lift a vending machine and such...


Enjoyment: I really want to see more cuz of all the confusion which i'v seen in 3 eps.


Overall: I would say a must see anime without doubt !

0 comments


Title: Nodame Cantabile Finale
Type: TV series
Release Date: Jan 14, 2010 to ?
Studio: J.C. Staff
Genres: Comedy, Josei, Music, Romance

This anime is one of thoes Rear Josei "Pearls" because Josei is very rare anime/manga genre ... IF i would say this is one of the best anime from that genre ... Well of course it all comes to ones taste.


Plot Summary: !!! FROM 1st Season !!! Shinichi Chiaki is a first class musician whose dream is to play among the elites in Europe. Coming from a distinguished family, he is an infamous perfectionist; not only is he highly critical of himself, but of others as well. The only thing stopping Chiaki from leaving for Europe is his fear of flying. As a result, he's grounded in Japan.

During his 4th year at Japan's top music university, Chiaki happens to meet Noda Megumi; or as she refers to herself, Nodame. On the surface, she seems to be an unkempt girl with no direction in life. However, when Chiaki hears Nodame play the piano for the first time, he is in awe at the kind of music she plays. To Chiaki's dismay, Nodame moves into the apartment next to his and finds out that she is head over heels in love with him.

Nodame Cantabile tells the story of Chiaki and Nodame, as they not only learn to deal with each other, but learn lessons from one another as they strive for the top of the musical world.

Genres: Action, Ecchi, Shounen, Super Power, Supernatural
Type: TV Series, 24 episodes
Release Date: Jan 11 - 2010

Hmm action + ecchi ? sound like another "Queen's Blade" but maybe we can see something different and i hope so ... :|

Story:The story takes place on the grounds of St. Mihailov Academy, a Japanese Eastern Orthodox school, and draws heavily on religious references from the aforementioned religion. Here it follows the trials and hardship of two of its students, Oribe Mafuyu and Tomo Yamanobe, until the encounter with a mysterious, silver-haired, Russian boy named Alexander, or Sasha for short. This pits them and the whole school in an all-out war between the Church itself and the so-called "Adepts", a sect of individuals wielding powers linked to the elements of chemistry.

I would like to recommend manga "Five"

0 comments
Genres: Drama, Romance, School, Shoujo , Comedy
The art can seem somewhat different ... :|

Story: Hina has repeatedly transferred schools due to her father's job, and has always dreamed of a normal high-school life. At her new school, however, she finds that her class is comprised solely of guys! On top of that, five mischievous boys from her class have taken a liking to her...!?

Thoughts: When i started of reading this manga i thought oh hell another romance in school with alot of boys meeting girl etc ... but then i read a bit further and what i found really surprised me the sudden development ... that she is one girl amongst all boys class and whole playful attitude from 5 guys who are sitting around her ... but later on i got again pulled into school romance ... ye ye i read it further on and i was surprised how the main heroine wasn't your plain girl from every school romance anime , manga out there she has an interesting character which kept me into this manga until i finished latest chapters ...

Main thing is about 5 guys and a girl which get into their circle and they call her "hime" (means Princess) and the whole development along side romance which is between one guy from that group and that girl. Its really playful manga with alot of things happening like fighting , kidnapping and such things

This was really my first manga like this i never thought i would find such and it was just randomly picked out manga ...
