Tomie ( manga/ Unlimited )

Ah, behold the masterpiece of Junji Ito-sensei: Tomie! Which is pronounced Tomi-e Not “Tommy” as I thought, lol.  Ok some may say Uzumaki is his masterpiece, but I happen to love the idea of this annoying, selfish, maniac, woman who just won’t freaking die, more so, she will come back and expand and multiply.

So I was watching episode 9 of the Junji Ito collection anime and I saw this so beautiful girl with a mole under her left eye… who could that be I wondered…? TOMI-E of course!!! They surely waited an awful long time to animate a Tomie chapter, I guess that’s normal since she has a lot. of material. It was a very nice one and it made me want to read the manga, so I read all the chapters I could find translated , then I remembered there were movies…9, so yes I’ll have to watch those as well.

The plot is Tomie is INCREDIBLE beautiful and men go mad for her, literally insane and wish to murder her, which is not a problem cos she can heal, regenerate and multiply just fine, this of course makes for quite interesting stories.

I started with the last movie it seems, it’s called Tomie Unlimited, sounds like a cool brand name..haha, I gotta say she’s my favorite actress so far, cos she’s very similar to the animated Tomie from today’s episode in Juni Itto collection, take a look!

Animated Tomie

See that??? Isn’t she nailing the character? Omg and the voice and the acting, I read some comments saying the movie was stupid but..come on, it’s a damn load of body horror, quite hard to achieve without some heavy CGI, plus the animated hmm “stages” of Tomie are faithful to the illustrations in the manga, so shush people! and I usually don’t say this about women, not specially Asian women, but this one actress, Miu Nakamura, at least in this one movie, is one of the hottest girls I’ve laid eyes on . Damn sexy, a bit scary tho, ah dreamy!!

I’ll watch the other movies later on and add reviews, for now, don’t miss this one movie, I obviously loved it.

Tomie_series_collection

Each movie has a different actress playing Tomie, which makes it for a very variated pallete of faces and strokes for the character.

Another interesting fact, in the manga Tomie is pretty much straight, but the movie version seems to swing both ways and is even nicer with her female “friends” slaves, lovers, or whatever they are.

 

Tachibanakan Triangle or Tachibanakan love to lie angle ( manga )

What is with that title? Seriously, choose one people!!

a83e6dd21d6bcfa50f233bdab9137184_239181.png

I honestly forgot about this one cos when I was reading it it was my “read all the yuri manga” week, so I legit, finished every title that was existing on Dynasty Scans . I think this one  had only few chapters out and maybe I dropped it cos of that, a short haired protagonist and the fact it was pointless ecchi/harem.

But now, older and wiser, I don’t mind short haired girls, although still not my favorite, but this has all that cliché harem titles can ask for, an indecisive MC, an old childhood friend , more on the pure side and a sexy temptation, or as the childhood friend would put it “erotic girl” and background loud older women.

It’s silly yes, but somehow it’s heartwarming, specially the backstory of Yoriko-oneechan and Yuu ( I’m so shipping those 2 morons) and well, childhood friend is cute and it seems MC might be leading towards her, although erotic girl is quite straightforward.

I am not sure who am I rooting for at this point, I usually focus on back characters in harem cos they might get some sort of closure-like, MC usually ends in “let’s all live together like this whole time” ugh. But the anime might be funny and well, yuri ecchi…yuri harem…we’ve come a long way, back in my day I had to feel the doki doki with Mariasama for crying out loud! Lately we’ve had Sakura trick! Strawberry panic!, CITRUS good lord! Actual legit yuri is making it’s way. So happy. Sniff.

So, check out the manga if you will and be sure to check out the anime.  🙂

 

 

Next anime season picks to follow!

I have some titles that I’ll be checking out, of course if they displease me I’ll drop them like it’s hot, but you know that right?

Go!

Chio-chan no Tsuugakuro :

This is the story of a girl who can’t make it to school due to several situations, the premise is,well, different, it will be something I either hate or love I’m sure. I can’t find a decent image, but..I saw YURI tags on some chapters in the manga, I’m surprised… -suddenly interested-

 

Tachibana-kan to Lie Angle:

tumblr_p0wnfb9L2Q1rzp45wo1_1280

In-te-res-ting

Ecchi yuri, a childhood friend and a new interest with a dense oblivious female protagonist. I hope the episodes are longer than 7 minutes!!

 

 

Mahou Shoujo Site : 

Asagiri Aya, a girl bullied at school and at home. One day, an eerie website, Mahou Shoujo Site, flashes on her computer screen and welcomes her to the Mahou Shoujo World. ( source Baka-Updates)

I’ve been reading the manga for this one for a while, it’s pretty damn dark and heavy.. I wonder if they will tone it down much and make it “softer” or will they stay true to it and keep it..well…as terribly awesome as it is.

The best for last…

 

Lostorage conflated WIXOSS

You must know I love all the Wixoss series, you see it’s not all yuri I watch, it is mostly yes, but this has no..does it? Hmm.. well the thing is, I’m sure it’ll be amazing and I’m so happy!

So that is it, of course will continue with the others, slow start, CITRUS, ramen crazy girl Kazumi san, Dragon Ball Super, Ito Junji collection, Hitori no shita, etc.

 

 

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..

 

dk1

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.

DagashiKashi-032316.jpg

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.
