[ News ] Hero Alliance, Boku no Hero Academia in Anime Adaptation

 After One Punch Man debuted in Anime adaptation, another great Hero/Villain is on it's way to amaze us. 
The official Twitter account of Kōhei Hirokoshi's My Hero Academia (Boku no Hero Academia) manga posted a picture on Tuesday that said that a television anime adaptation has been green-lit. The Twitter account later removed the post.
The domain name 'HeroAca.com' was registered under the name of TOHO Ad, the advertising company of the TOHO Group, on October 20
(src: ANN)

    I entered a forum that Hero Academia soon after creating their domain will announce that the graphic novel to get it's anime adaptation. Of course my inner weeab tingles for the hype,  I'm not really fond of scenes under the action genre. (I'm barely hanging on Haikyuu!! manga). 
Surely knowing what will be the storyline, Im probably clinging to the anime fight scenes. (Yeah, same for Tokyo Ghoul:re) Boku no Hero academia characters involved young aged heroes that will surely peaked your interests, also it harbors future timeline of Heroes, Villains and Quirkless. 

The story rounds for the young man with no powers,known as quikless, entered an academy (Yūei Kōkō) where cultivates Heroes, later then drawn himself from Villains upon receiving "One for All" power.

[ Classic Review ] Prince of Tennis end of Season 1

Classic #0001
Something a part of me felt accomplished from reading or probably continuing what should have been written on my diary 9 years ago. There were few yet big details cleared as I reached the episode "Unwavering Feelings".

    Maybe the fact that I was too focused that their tennis is a team play, I neglected the big role of Momoshiro to Ryoma throughout the season. Ryuzaki-sensei's line pierced me this goal " He is here yet his heart has already left us". The episode Unwavering Feelings didnt cover one episode duration but continued to build up to the end of the season. If I were to compare them with Kuroko no Baske, the "combo" had more impact with Kuroko and Taiga. Kuroko no Baske as a team lacked in individuality than Prince of Tennis, whom every pawn was given time to their own importance. Prince of Tennis didnt left out any of their players, as well as the romantic (dont even think of YAOI) , evolutional, drama were pointed out. The setting goes well with the past. Majors, a baseball sports anime, taken this point as well, a chance to pro league. The decision made by the production to this anime is acceptable. Some said it was underrated anime, even so it will still be one of the best sports anime out there. The relationship of kouhai and senpai was evident on the last episode. A reverse sense on Kuroko no Baske which seemed depended on the skills of their kouhai to win.

 But I guess the climax stopped in the battle of Sanada and Echizen, it is still amazing and could never been replaced by any of the remaining tennis match on the series. I found the remaining "episodes" on America, is boring or dead but the turning point when Ryoma rode back to Japan to battle Tezuka made me appreciate it all. Certainly, Im excited for the National Tournament.

[ Daily Review ] Kotomori-san wa Kotowarenai! Episodes 2 - 3

Short Review:
I dont literally go for the PLOT, plot.. but it keeps giving me more. The episode runs out with pure gag at the least minutes spent. Some were very light but heavy on the punchlines. Entertaining as it is, It is good as an interval anime show. Probably better than Atashin'chi episodes.


[ News ] Kuroko no Baske Episode 75.5 " It's Best Present "

Kuroko's Basketball anime franchise began streaming a promotional video on Friday for the "75.5th Quarter" OVA episode. The episode is titled "Saikō no Present Desu" (It's the Best Present).
src : kurobasanime
I still love the fact how this series evolved about single player of the team tried to fix their friendship through basketball. Afar from that, I'm guessing and hoping that the OVA will surely make (Midorima please!) Kuroko and Murasakibara's Zone as their starboard. Last time, what they did was a part of the game and never completely shown their Zone yet. Leaving the backset aside, I wonder how these guys will make up a team on the said project !

[ Daily Review ] Dance with Devils Episode 3

I'm glad that I didnt drop my hopes for HAREM!

 Today, suprisingly my guesses were thoroughly shown in this episode. The mastery of characterization, mystery in it's genre really played over the fan service. I'm excited that the blue character finally appeared on the scene, although in a glimpse. It's enjoying, cat dying episode.

The character feature, Urie Sogami. seems have a promising deep color of his voice. Ah! reminds me of Renguji of Uta Pri ! I still find the singing portion as fancy, disregarding the lyrics, the visuals seemingly fitting the story line. Still, I'm rooting for a better end on this kind of anime.

[ Daily Review ] Manga : Kore ga Koi to Iunuraba

Today, I tried applying to be an admin of a Shoujo Feels Manga, and I just hope I wouldn't get rejected like last time with Anime & Manga that I've been aiming as otaku life achievement.

      Anyhow, Aikawa Saki's character styles have been easily recognized by my taste just from reading one of her manga. Incest perhaps is something I wouldn't ever considered as one of a good topic whether as anime or manga. Her approach on Kedamono Kareshi made me remember her style, it was pretty violating manga. I guess, visualizing and understanding the situation to deeper problems caused by the characters and the mangaka's plan was something beyond than I could havet I have to stop reading it. If I were to decide, I would still read but serious stories are better to be read in novels.

      So, taken my chances back for Aikawa-san's works, Kore ga Koi to Iunuraba approaches , again, with siblings matter as an attack. Though different than this time, the mood, the progress, etc.,are still notable on her works. I don't feel the romance that badly but the situation is there. Kadaoka's background was deeper than I thought, I could blame myself for that and for Sora, other being compared to her sister, the other factors are disregarded since it's (so clicheee!) The relationship circle, I think is still edgy but it'll somehow rounds perfectly as more chapters are released. 

The eleven chapters of the manga already setted out the major problems of the story, so will see...

[ Video Feature ] MS Paint recreated Tokyo Ghoul OP

Daily Reminder // that Tokyo Ghoul is about the FEELS.

I bet you've tried making OC's (own character) from Paint,  or else I'll be damned if you haven't ( cause your guilty watching episodes online. Either way, this video couldnt get any better than most of us but given credit and effort, it'll surely give him an A+ right?

( It's all about the feels....... feeeeeeeels...)

[ Classic Review ] Prince of Tennis s1

     As I'm nearing to the end of the first season, few fragments of my childhood diary came into mind. Some were how funny my grammar are, how childish and biased I reacted to every episode. I remembered how I rushed in line to get a bottle full of water, watering my watermelon plant every 3 in the afternoon. Once the clocked banged on that time, I'll immediately run and watch the episode on a free couch.

The value that Prince of Tennis never lessened through those years. Time stood still whenever the segment is about the Inui Juice or the Chibitalia of the different princes. If ever it will be rated, it ranks on the level of Kuroko no Baske's creativity. The human abilities are beyond non-fiction and still entertaining and promising. One that doesnt anticipated in my mind was Ryoma got beaten four matches (singles) on the first season. A very good source of entertaining value, the character's build up and solid foundation of team work.

( I still dont get it what's with ATOBE of Hyoutei, doesnt look so handsome to me . Haha )

[ Blog ]

All I know about [ MAD ] is, though same with AMV, it gives new meaning to the series combined with a chosen music/song. Recently, I found this Chinese YT accnt with great MAD videos.

I really miss reading No Game, No Life that recentedly posts it's Six Volume online.

[ Daily Review ] One Punch Man Episode 3

Ive been loitering around telling myself how can everyone seems so pumped on One Punch Man, then it came to me... Well it's never too late to give my hopes up for this Hero. (?) Haha. The episode was fun, superb, and stupid. Getting through the center, the scenes, character style brought me back to the 90's. (Sorry Lupin !) Yes, fighting villains with long descriptive powerful explanations beaten down by a peculiar character added with a sidekick. 
I just hope that as the series continue, the production may not over power its sense of value. Ah. makes me wanna read the manga. @ _ @ I cant blame if the other characters cant tell whether he's joking or not.

[ Video Feature ] Akagami no Shirayuki-hime

Are you as hyped as this?

I'm probably not. haha. Red Hair Snow White is surely a refreshing love story between a herbalist and second prince. Rather than typical situation of bringing their differential status against the present odds, the story rounded when two protagonists waited for the right time with a pinch of salt from the third characters.
Nevertheless, when it comes to commercial I always find Japanese creative, in-spite of hilarious/wacky way.

[ Seeds ] Fall Season (2015-2016)

Current watchlist this season with pre-reviews.
  1. Owari no Seraph s2 - Keeping the hype down from the previous season, Im looking forward for more revelation about the Hyakuya's over Majo, Vampires, and humans. I want something more with Yu and Mika's struggle as a victim on each sides.
  2. Haikyuu s2 - I've skipped many technical statements on the manga so I cant probably dropped on this one. I wished for finer details.

  1. Comet Lucifer - Very Eureka-like but it gives me Aldnoah.zero vibes. I cant let this one slide.
  2. Concrete Revolutio - Apart from it's first episode, It's very intriguing, I found the sense of justice too funny, but at the same time , it's situation is enough to continue it. On hold, whether to drop or not. So far, it's very entertaining.  
  3. One Punch Man - Everybody loves this one, I dont know why yet. Very bad ass hero, but if in terms of Villains, Boku no Hero Academia weight them more. Story with comedy as punch line is something I could hold onto. 

  1. Highschool Star Musical - BL! BL! BL! Gorgeous gay shows for me HOOORAY! Haha. Just kidding. Typical situations on an idol group. Why watch the show? It's musical! and Im hoping for new boys soundtracks on my phone. Nevertheless, I just went for the service. This time what separates it from Uta Pri is the Harem. I bet struggles can be a cliche like man against himself, to his team, to his family etc etc.. 
  2. Osomatsu-san - I'm not fan of Comedy but Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun and (I think) Osomatsu-san should be an exception. Nothing happens so far, aside from it's gaining popularity by mocking/copying some of the well-know anime series around. Character designs are comical as well. Looks very promising!

  1. Shin Atashinchi - my highschool meryenda anime on service. It's very good to watch after some serious plots this season. Good for as an interval show.

  1. Shomin Sample - Another lucky guy after Kirito. Haha. I'm looking forward to it's complexity or not. Muscle fettish thing is not in favor. Not impressing, giving more episodes for me to let go.
  2. Dance with Devils - Is this harem? If it is, Im probably numb with it since I've focused myself on the heroine's mysteriousness , finding her mother  with the grimoire. It's better than Diabolic Lovers having it's thick plot, I hate vampires anyway. Haha. I'm looking forward to the characters development and their story.
  3. Sakurako-san - Reminds me of Hyouka with Yuuko Ichihara's atmosphere. I've always favoured mystery in anime genre. First impression was different from the Promo Video (PV), so it made me cling more. Although, Im numb after watching 375 episodes of murder cases in Detective Conan that made me hard to convince that by touching bones could give you answers. Oh,well.

  1. Lance N'Masques - Dropped, no chuunibyou for me, plus I found this anime too weird. Cute loli just got away ! haha.

  1. Noragami Aragoto - probably I'll drop this sooner. Im reading the manga and anime's timeline is confusing with the chapters arrangement. No short details are also added. One of my most favourite series this season.
  2. K : Return of Kings - I've ran through the anime last summer vacation and was updated with the OVA/Movie as well. Silver's King return will be the part Im looking forward to. Characters are too clingy to the past, (Mikoto's death, third King of Red clan) , with the Green and the Blue clans clash it would bring scenic episodes on great camera angles. Moving ( I mean suuuuupaaah ! )
  3. Young Black Jack - Highschool moments to refresh but as a fan of Black Jack, Im looking more how he was managed to become such god-like skill. I presume it'll be dark, motivating, adventuresome with new characters, and time setting. Number one on my list !
So far, Im happy and not knowingly Friday is the only day I can rest , probably this season is worth recalling in near future. Happy Fall Season ! :)

[ Movie ] Hachiko : A Dog Story (2009)

  A drama based on the true story of a college professor's bond with the abandoned dog he takes into his home.
“..I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me, they are the role model for being alive…”

I'm really fond of watching a touching story, my movie experience with this one is a lifetime achievement. I grew up with my pet dogs, and knowing their life span is less to 10 years, this story explains our dog-love-story. 

ah gawwd! Im still finding this shitty post piercing my kokoro.

Ken: [Talking in Japanese] It's been a year, hasn't it? I wake up sometimes in the middle of the night and think about Parker. He was a good friend. I understand how you feel. Hachi, my friend, Parker is never coming home. But if Hachiko wants to wait, then Hachiko should wait. You want to wait for him, don't you? Have a long life, Hachi.

The story builds up treatable, - starts crying- hahahha.

Andy Wilson: Hey. You know we love you, Hachi. We want you to stay here with us. If you have to go... that's okay too. Good-bye, Hachi.

[ Movie Review ] Kyoukai no Kanata


Type: Movie
Episodes: 1 (part I Kako-hen and II Mirai-hen )
Status: Finished Airing
Producers: Kyoto Animation, Shochiku
Genres: Fantasy, Slice of Life,Supernatural
Duration: 1 hr. 30 min.
Rating: PG-13 - Teens 13 or older
Source : (MyAnimeList )
Review :

Kyoukai no Kanata has been one of the most demanded come back anime since it has been aired. It plays an imaginary yet treatable plot we could ever dream of. It is perhaps one of the most successful, and well-planned story to be a movie. Kako-hen , although, is a compilation of the entire series, (I skipped most of the boring scenes) caught my attention to cling on it. The ending is something I didnt look forward to, but getting to know more of the next is really exciting.

Mirai-hen, in other terms, is good for it's name as a movie. The episode runs for one and half hours and didnt keep any boring scenes. The plot mood is serious and mystery is kept through out, but the action is a bit lacking. 

I was hoping for the battle of Kuriyama Mirai and Kanbara Akihito (youmu). The relation of each characters is still there and when times that they were somewhat broken is still felt. The script, lines, and character facial design have helped to improve the story build up. Again, it was lacking on/kept hidden on how Ayaka-san and Izumi-san were related. Ayaka-san line was " You cant even ever kill her, I have fight against Izumi-san" as she was talking to Nase Hiroomi, Izumi-san's little brother. I recommend and I hope that there was a flashback, and somewhere on those scenes it'll stir the story between them. 

The movie , we all know and hope for is the feels, did a great job on that. It gained my sympathy, understanding, and longing for the situation to end. Each characters theme was well-pointed, especially to Hiroomi's dedication as a head of the Nase household. More importantly how double-sided each lines the characters says. From the previous series, Fujima Miroku said " We can finally be one. " I was sacked and believed it was a love scenic lines but it isn't. The music scores used is non-catchy , not feeling and has no impact at all but it wasnt just that bad.The setting is okay, same as always but the dark scene, when Kanbara-san said "so this is what Mirai's memories" is somewhat ridiculous, he was wounded and as in his background I didnt know Kanbara-san can soul leap into one's body. hahaha. Anyhow, seiyuu's portrayal syncs from the series. Directors and staffs should be proud of this anime. I guess the most attention would be is on the storyboard. It is well-planned, catching, mysterious, and lovable movie for an anime series. 

Kyoukai no Kanata the Movie is highly recommended on its' fans, shippers and mystery fanatics. I dont really watch series that has a movie, except for Detective Conan. This experience is refreshing and gives me high expectation of who will fall in the same as an anime series having a movie. This movie is conversable to its viewers.
