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

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

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.

Attack on Titan (Season 1)

More like attack on humans amirite?

It’s been so long since my last post! But I have come back now that my exams are over. There are so many new anime that have released and I want to check out, one of them being Attack on Titan Season 2, and since I watched Season 1 before I started blogging and because of the big gap between them, I went back to refresh my memory on Season 1.

Attack on Titan is set in a fictional world where humanity is on the brink of extinction. Why? Human-eating Titans. Yes, Titans, and as such humans have resorted to building tall walls in order to get away from them. Three in fact, those being Maria, Rose and Sina, and for 100 years humanity has been safe from these Titans. Well, those who remain behind these walls. Continue reading

RWBY

One long (but epic) cutscene cut into bite size chunks

Okay so this may not be seen as an anime because it’s created by RoosterTeeth, but it’s on Crunchyroll. Not a strong argument, but I’m reviewing it anyway but won’t (for balance) list it in the anime category.

I don’t know what made me want to watch RWBY. and I started it not thinking it much about it. I heard of the name and kept calling it R W B Y, but it’s pronounced ruby. You find out about this like a few episodes in and makes a lot of sense when you find out the name’s origin. Anyway, going into this without thinking of what to expect was a good idea (I do this with quite a lot of anime), and I really enjoyed it. Continue reading

Pokemon Generations: The Redemption (Episode 18)

A timeless love 

The final episode of Pokemon Generations comes in the form of The Redemption, and I’ll say right now that the series definitely redeemed itself after The Investigation, ending it on a high and touching episode.

Since this is the final time we see the Kalos and the Pokemon Universe in Generations, what better way to end it by featuring post-game content. I know that The Investigation had post-game content, but that was kinda meh. I guess it was included to save this part of the content for the final episode. Good job, but I still don’t like The Investigation. Continue reading

Pokemon Generations: The Investigation (Episode 17)

A Pokemon remembers

It’s the penultimate episode of Pokemon Generations, and wow did the time fly by. It felt like just the other day I was watching the first two episodes that came out and seeing a montage of the different Regions before starting our adventure in the Kanto Region.

Again we’re in the Kalos Region, and The Investigation failed to impress. I wasn’t entirely focused on the episode the first time I watched it, but when I watched it again, it wasn’t anything amazing. Unlike previous episodes, The Investigation has made a dip in the quality of Pokemon Generations episodes released. It is a shame really, considering how each episode has surpassed the previous, and now we get something like this. Continue reading

Okobore Hime to Entaku Kishi

No ordinary princess

Another ongoing series, I didn’t like where the story has currently stopped. But from the comments I have seen on MangaHere, the mangaka isn’t feeling well enough to carry on with the series. Get well soon Akatsuki Kaori!

Moving on now, and I do like where this series is headed. Okobore has a princess as our MC, known as Princess Leticia or The Leftover Princess in her Kingdom. Her title comes from the fact she was given the throne instead of her two older brothers, because if either of them became King, Civil War would follow suit. So, her King father decided that the best way to deal with this problem would be to give Leticia the throne instead. A pretty good idea and an interesting backstory. Well done for making that decision Leticia’s dad!

Leticia isn’t an ordinary princess either. She’s a strong-willed person who will do what she can to make people see her as someone different to being the Leftover Princess, and will do what she can to maintain peace during her reign. What’s more, rather than leave it to her guards and what not to handle things, she ventures out into the Kingdom to get a feel for the place she is going to rule as Queen someday, and is educated in stuff no man would think a woman should learn, such as reading maps and what not.  Continue reading

Pokemon Generations: The Beauty Eternal (Episode 16)

No rest for the wicked

So there are around two or three (maybe four to make it a nice 20) episodes to go now before the end of a short but amazing series that is Pokemon Generations. And we’re finally in the Kalos Region! I haven’t played X or Y, but from the looks of this episode, it’s a pretty interesting Region with its villains.

The Beauty Eternal is sort of a fast paced but dark episode, and is a strong-ish start to a new Region. Lysandre is our main guy in this episode and judging from the glimpse of Yveltal at the end *late spoiler alert*, he’s the villain from Pokemon Y. At first I thought he was a good guy, what with how he seemed to be portrayed during a public presentation with his Pyroar, until he mentions something about never letting the world become ugly. Turns out he’s part of Team Flare. My lack of Pokemon gaming knowledge is clearly showing… Continue reading

Pokemon Generations: The King Returns (Episode 15)

Poke-fusion?

Well there’s a first time for everything, and this week’s episode definitely proved that. It was such an amazing episode that it made me wonder why all anime isn’t this good. There is a good handful of anime that’s brilliant don’t get me wrong, but when you have a short series like Pokemon Generations, it makes you wonder why there aren’t more hidden gems like this out there.

The King Returns is still based in the Unova Region and continues on from The Frozen World with Kyurem under the control of Team Plasma. Ghetsis is using it to create an ice age in Unova which as you saw in The Frozen World, worked well against Gym Leader Drayden who failed in saving Opelucid City from Team Plasma. It’s definitely a strong episode and has everything you could ask for: good score playing in the background, Legendary Pokemon, strong storyline, and Pokemon Fusion.  Continue reading
