NicoMaki Anime VS all other media

I won’t make an extensive list or anything, for that and much better done, you can read this Les yay Love Live  so, having said that, I was reading an official love live diary or something and it was so cute.. I mean, let me tell you a little story first.

I first knew of the existence of NicoMaki by reading doujinshi by Sweet Pea aka Oshima Tomo,  it was so well drawn I thought “legit yuri series? what is this?”, I read ALL of them and more, but hers are the ones I like best to this day. Then I found out it was based on this “Love Live” so I thought “meh, surely there’s not much there”, I watched the whole thing and I found their interactions right on the tsundere spot, nothing too big to make a deal out of actually. Then I learned about the official manga and the games and the cd dramas and that awesome, awesome song they have together…

 

So, I learned that while it’s not yuri 100% it’s very strong subtext and that’s ok for them.

You must know by now I like my yuri strong, like coffee, my yuri goggles broke a while ago, so smiles and hand holding don’t do the trick much, I demand kisses and confessions and what not. But these 2 have enough to make me wonder what is really going on with them

Official

Also official ❤

These both are so damn fucking cute.

Ok that’s it for now, if you don’t know of this pair…GO GET YOUR FIX, read the official manga, watch the anime, read (specially Oshima Tomo/Sweet Pea’s) doujinshis and check out the transcriptions on things like a certain festival..anyway the movie also has a very jealous Nico over Tsubasa getting close to Maki teeheee

 

Dagashi Kashi 2 ( anime)

So, as you know I recently watched the complete first season for Dagashi Kashi, I found it lovable, funny, interesting and it even had some random yuri tease or as tv tropes page calls it, “Les yay”, what else can you ask for? They were gonna have a second season too! so I had to catch up! I even liked the OP song !

I was excited about the second season..until..

Shidare Hotaru in the first season

That is all fine, the animation was good, the character design was very pleasant, but alas! A different studio was in charge for second season and you can really tell…

dk2

S. Hotaru in season 2 …

Like…you can really see the difference, I checked out the manga and this one is more faithful to it, I have to admit, but.. I LOVED the more refined face detail of the first season, the color palette… everything was much better in my opinion, Saya is pretty much the same. But that alone, Hotaru’s downgrade is enough for me to drop the series, even tho I do enjoy the stories, I tried to watch it, I made it to episode 3, but I can’t, I like the old studio animation 10000 x more.

So this is how an anime title gets dropped by me, change drastically the design and most likely I’m gone.

Too bad, but oh well, I’ll check reviews when it’s over to search for any les yay scenes and watch them alone.

Go watch season 1 and if it doesn’t bother you, watch the second one.

Dagashi Kashi (anime)

Yes, another anime title, cos…it’s that time of the year.

I saw the season 2 of this anime was out, and I thought.. “That girl has funky eyes..she must be some lunatic..it may be funny..but candies?” So I took my chance and started watching, some people said it was boring and etc, but I found it enjoyable and delightful, I LOVE Hotaru, (lilac crazy-eyed girl) and Saya, the guy doesn’t matter to me at all.

They have some references to anime in general, which is always cool and you can learn about candies, cos in anime you can learn about any-thing.

I know it’s not yuri or anything, but there’s funny vibes with Hotaru and Saya, and Hotaru is..well… special, cos she’s freaking weird and Saya is more of a tsundere, but also she seems smarter than Hotaru and the dude, or at least with more common sense.

It’s nice and different, not for everyone I think, but I liked it and will continue watching and then go for season 2!

 

Killing Bites ( anime )

As you can see I’m watching lots of anime! I got neither energy nor will to cover each episode or to wait for them to end (unless something grand happens) but I feel happy to write a bit about them when I’m liking them.

This one..well it’s fighting and fanservice, but after Keijo!!! which I LOVED, nothing is too ridiculous! The premise of hybrids fighting is more plausible than battling with ass and breasts techniques so… plus it reminds me of this game, Bloody Roar for the Playstation, haha such good times!

 

KILLING BITES.png

So, we have Hitomi aka brutal ratel, she’s basically a freaking honey badger, which is hilarious BUT in reality those damn little brats are surely fearless! They just don’t give a fuck about anything and face anyone, no matter how much bigger they are.

An added bonus is you learn about animals and how they fight, in anime you can pretty much learn about anything, from bakery secrets to american football to candies. Seriously, it never ends.

Cheetah girl, Eruza..well..she’s.. interesting, I’ve never met anyone by them showing up  climbing on the bathroom stall..I actually hope that never happens.. She stole Hitomi’s panties right away, that was pure gold, plus cheetah are among my favorite animals and I love pigtails!

maxresdefault

She seems like THAT kind of girl

 

This won’t be anime of the year or anything but it sure looks like fun! Oh yes there are more characters but , I just started today so, bunny girl is silly, leo dude is a jerk, tiger dude is ok.

Junji Ito collection ( anime )

I just will say “Tomie” and “Uzumaki”, know any of them? Yes? good! then we can talk, if not, go immediately to check it out, they are master pieces that everyone who is alive and likes horror has to see/read.

Now, I saw the anime came out and I was wondering what kind of anime it’d be, because I haven’t read any of it before (the horror ! I shall soon tho) so I didn’t know what to expect, I mean, besides having watched Tomie movies and Uzumaki.

Man, was I in for a treat

The art is, unique, I really dig it, I found myself laughing out loud for most of it, which I surely didn’t expect, I can’t say it’s scary but it surely as hell is disturbing, bizarre and just amazing, the kind of horror I just love. I am so glad they are making this anime now, I will surely get a hold of some mangas for sure.

They have it all, from urban legends, horrible mutations and other body horrors, parallel dimensions, some curses, it’s really something, I can see why Junji Ito is such a big name.

A bit more on the anime, the style is faithful to the manga as it far as I can tell by doing a quick search, the music is very suitable and the voice acting is on point.

Souichi

That little brat is Souichi, he apparently goes around putting curses on people, often for hilarious results, he isn’t himself a really threatening character, he is funny as hell.

 

Slow Start ( anime )

Oh my gods, this is a title I don’t think I would of picked myself!! It is thanks to The Yuri Nation  that I decided to pick it up and damn I didn’t stop until the last aired episode!! Before anything, please do check that link out, this guy, the OG man, does a splendid job telling us about all that is yuri and girls related, I’ve found awesome stuff by checking out his site, so if you want to as well, go take a look!

Now, the anime is indeed slowish, but in the best way, think about non non biyori, the characters are cute, I love how  Tama-chan ( the genki girl) throws references to games, specially dating sims, specially when it involves Eiko (I dunno what to make of her but she surely has a way with women, whether she does it on purpose or not) , it’s also funny and charming, funny and sweet, what else could you ask for? Seriously, so far there’s nothing set on stone, but I sorta like Tama/Hana and Eiko/anyone lol.

Kamu,Eiko,Hana and Tama

 

If you like relaxing, enjoyable anime titles, with a hint of subtext (hint? pfff, it’s a bit more than that) and silly stuff going on, please do check it out, it doesn’t seem all that at first but it grows on you, fast, I can’t stop watching, I swear.

The neighbor, Hiroe is also pure gold!

Citrus ( anime )

Well, of course I’m going to write about this, I have an entry about the manga, oh about 3 actually..anyway, I knew the anime was coming out but alas! I missed the first 2 episodes but thanks to The Yuri Nation I was aware of this and could get on the Citrus wagon.

Citrus-Anime-visual-02.jpg

So, I know many people think it’s a very overrated series, I’ve been reading manga, specially yuri manga long enough to know it has it’s fair share of clichés and in my opinion too much drama and dragging along the suffering and unsolved issues, then again, the art is so, so gorgeous I can look past that, except those times I want to slap everyone cos they can’t just sit and talk dammit, TALK, but if people could express what they feel or think there wouldn’t be any, or not so many, manga titles I guess so…

So, the anime, I love the seeiyus ( voice actresses ), I think they fit in correctly, I am up to day with the manga and I am super pleased to see they are remaining faithful to the story, including iconic moments and facial expressions, they did well with the art ( except, am I the only one bothered by Yuzu’s reddish knees?) and I have liked hair color options so far.

The intro is quite to the point “you’ll watch yuri, girls kissing, these 2 here, there ya go thanks” so no surprises there

 

 

I don’t know how much can they cover in this season ( am I hoping for more than 1 season? yes) but on the intro there’s even the twins, so we’ll see… will they have a different ending to the manga, which isn’t finished as we speak, but I have the feeling it will soon?

Ah, can’t wait to see what the future holds, but so far I’m pleased beyond reason, haha, of course I got other animes to watch, but that’s a different post, so now, if you like the manga, check out the anime, if you don’t..check it out, Mei is as “aloof” as ever but damn she seems more human when animated, for some reason.

I’m making a quick post today, haven’t written in a while, I scored this awesome translation job and I’ve been rushing through it to buy a new PC, anyway, let’s get right to it.

I saw this title on the upcoming anime lists, it seemed interesting and a bit psycho, boy it is much more than that, I watched the first episode and I was here, with my eyes wide open and squealing like a damn fan girl that I am.  I then learned there was a manga, so being the nice person I am I found it and read the available chapters in 2 sittings, it’s been one of the most delightful mangas ever, fanservice yeah some, who cares, the real deal are the characters, Yumeko is absolutely insane about gambling! Who thought such a storyline could be so sexual?? I disliked Mary at first, but while reading the manga, man she’s really awesome, so is the secretary and the council president, of course Ikishima-san, the nutty with a gun, has to be mentioned cos,wtf, she really gets off with weird shit.

The more I learn about the characters the more I want to read the next chapter. The anime, in my opinion nailed it totally, the animation, the voices, specially when they lose it and become way too intense, it’s PERFECT as perfection can ever exist.

You can clearly see this is one of my favorite anime/manga at the moment..oh Gods the new season of Jigoku Shoujo..it only gets worse every episode and by worse I mean the characters are more despicable, thus making the series better and better.

Quick anime update

Dragon Ball Super

I haven’t paid any attention to this, because after GT I was more than done with the nonsense and honestly all I wanted was more of the DBZ vibe, the characters I knew,well I got my wish! This is actually all happening after the whole Buu thing, there’s Bulma, there’s even the Pilaf gang and my absolutely new favorites Beerus and Whis, they just crack me up and they are so powerful! Vados, Whis’s sister tho, she’s the best one in the whole series, yet, too bad she doesn’t show up as often  *sighs*

I had already liked the movies, Battle of the Gods and F resurrection,well I didn’t like that but only cos I dislike Freezer, ugh that voice lol. Also the Super Saiyajin God was like…ok, but the Super Saiyajin Super God, blue whatever it’s called, when you are already a Super Saiyajin God but also surpass it as with SSJ, in short , (taken from Dragonballwiki)

” a transformation that uses the power of Super Saiyan God with the Super Saiyan form.”

..it’s eh a lil bit too much haha, but I liked the blue hair now, Super Saiyajin Rose tho…Nope. (fuck off Black) but overall, I like it that there’s goofiness and I like the general nice feeling, so I am actively trying to catch up with the releases, I think it’s on episode 97..I’m close to the 60 so hooray.

VGejitossblue

Gotta love Vejitto in SSJ blue ❤

Many people complain about the series, well as with any anime title, or anything in life, don’t like it? don’t see it. It’s quite easy

KAKEGURI

Oh my, I knew it was about gambling and I expected some crazy bitches, but not like this, this girl, long black haired one..she really out of her mind lol, love her already, spooky as fuck, also, how can the whole gambling thing be made in such an ecchi perverted way?? Beats me, but it’s done and honestly it’s being fun to watch, I can’t wait to see her and who seems to be the school queen, I am sure she’s the president of the student council cos come on,those rule the world actually. There’s a manga so of course I’m reading it as well. I see some interesting crazy ass girl with the patch over her eye.

Fate/Apocrypha 

I liked Fate/ Stay night, I liked Fate/Zero, I liked Unlimited Blade works, so I am watching this one, see how it goes. Hope that dude doesn’t show up, ah that Shiro Emiya UGH I dislike him so much!!

UPDATE: I just watched the first episode, This Saber is sassy! I like her already, I mean, Saber is always cool, but Mordred wow, she rocks and there’s a lot of cute looking servants !! It looks well

Apocrypha_Poster

I’m still waiting for my Jigoku ShoujoYoi no Togi, New Game!!, Aho-girl, Netsuzou Trap, Gamers and oh Sailor Moon Crystal 4th season will be a 2-parts movie!!
