Final Fantasy XV: Episode Ardyn – Prologue

A man of no consequence

With the news of Tetsuya Nomura’s departure from Square Enix resulting in a stop to the development of upcoming DLC for Final Fantasy XV (FFXV), it was nice to know that at least would be getting Episode Ardyn. Not only that, we get a prologue to his DLC just as we did with Noctis and Co in FFXV: Brotherhood.

Ardyn Izunia is quite an interesting villain in my opinion, but he had very little screen time, hence the DLC which hopefully fleshes out his character a lot more. Yet, you have to love how much impact he has to the story whenever he turns up (which isn’t a lot until the final chapters of FFXV, but if you haven’t played the game or seen the cut-scenes, what are you waiting for?!). But he wasn’t always a villain as Episode Ardyn here shows, and I’m sure there was some mention of this in the game.

Death Parade

One does not simply die

dp

You find yourself in a lift/elevator which stops on a floor. You see another person in a lift/elevator next to yours, and you both wonder where you are. You walk through the room and see a bartender. He greets you and tells you that you cannot leave the bar until you play a game, and you will find out why you’re there when someone wins.

Wait, what? Continue reading “Death Parade”

Classroom of the Elite

Classroom of Mystery

We’ve all been to high school, or currently at high school depending on your age, but you’ll agree with me when you first get a glimpse of Tokyo Koudo Ikusei Senior High School and wonder why we never had such a school. It’s secluded from the Tokyo mainland and has an amazing campus (think University meets retail park/mall), and 100% of students either go on to college or straight into a job. What more can you ask for from a school that has it all and gives you a guaranteed job/place in college at the end?

Well they are even more generous than that. Each student gets their own smartphone, and at the start of each month they’re told they will be receiving 100,000 points which is basically 100,000 yen. With this they can buy anything and everything available on campus, be it clothes, food and consoles. Pretty cool if you ask me.

Mob Psycho 100

Psychic One Punch Man

It’s been a while my readers, but I am still around! Just been busy here and there, but I haven’t forgotten about blogging. I would say this mini but unintended break was for the best, what with me being able to check out some new anime without feeling the need to rush in making reviews.

And what better way to come back than with Mob Psycho 100. It’s made by the creator of One Punch Man, which I must say is such a good anime that I’m watching it again (expect a revisited review!). Mob Psycho has elements from One Punch Man, but it’s in its own universe.

Overlord

Who said the game was over?

ol

So after watching one episode, I reviewed Overlord and then dropped the series. I didn’t give it the benefit of the doubt back then, but I did this time, and I realised how much I was missing and how bad my first review must have been. Overlord is definitely better than what my review (may or may not) say, but then again I haven’t gone back to check what I wrote. You can check it on my Blogger (not giving you a link because this review will sell Overlord to you). Continue reading “Overlord”

The Royal Tutor

Why can’t all tutors be this amazing?

trt

I actually can’t remember what made me want to watch this, but it’s just adorable and funny. I’d end my review there, but there’s a lot more to talk about than just saying it’s adorable and funny.

When I got into the first few minutes of the The Royal Tutor, it felt like it had some Diabolik Lovers vibes going on, but fortunately this proved to be wrong. Not that Diabolik Lovers is a bad anime in my opinion; the characters could have been fleshed out a bit more, and for me it was curiosity that made me watch the entire series. But we’ll get on to this topic in a sec. Continue reading “The Royal Tutor”

Attack on Titan (Season 2)

Just when you thought you knew what was going on in Season 1

AoT2.png

My did Season 1 end with a cliffhanger, which I am gonna spoil because it’s been what, 3 or 4 years(?) since it aired: Titans in the walls! Talk about a bombshell.

Attack on Titan comes back after a long wait with a very intense plot as we delve deeper into the AoT universe. So much is going that I have no idea where to start. Well, I can say that Season 2 carries on from where Season 1 ended with everyone who was fighting the Titans looking at the part of the wall which crumbled after Annie had grabbed it in her attempt to escape from Eren in his Titan form.

Koe no Katachi

The past can come back to haunt you

It’s not often you come across a manga where a person has a disability, and this is what drew me to Koe no Katachi. The huge difference in what you usually come across in the world of manga and anime, you know your fantasy worlds, typical high school romance stories and what have you,  is a nice breath of fresh air, and after coming across it via tweets when the movie was what everyone was talking about and seeing a couple of clips, I just had to get in on the hype.

And it truly is amazing. Koe no Katachi follows Ishida Shouya, a boy who’s bored with life and tries to add some excitement to it by becoming somewhat of an adrenaline junkie. His fearless actions are adored by his friends even though they aren’t really fans of what he does, if you get what I mean. Nevertheless, they want to be around him. Continue reading “Koe no Katachi”
