One does not simply die
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 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.

For some reason I stayed away from this anime, but it was one worth waiting for.
Izumi Shinichi is our main character and victim of Parasyte (Kiseijuu: Sei no Kakuritsu) which, as you would’ve guessed, concerns parasites. This supernatural species take the form of a green snake-like thing with a mini drill on its head, which seeks out humans in order to survive by taking over their brain. Shinichi comes across one when it enters his right hand, and stops it from going into his brain. As a result, it takes over his right arm and matures, complete with eyes and a mouth. It can also change its form so it can stand on its own and what not. Anyway, after 1-2 days, Shinichi somehow gets over the shock of having his right arm eaten away and replaced by this thing, and names it Migi (because it’s his right hand). Over time Shinichi learns more about Migi’s kind and what they’re capable of, whilst Migi learns more about humans through research and talking to Shinichi. Continue reading “Parasyte -the maxim-“
A past event in your life may be crucial to your future
With a main character who seems to speak in a very monotonous tone and doesn’t show much expression until necessary, ERASED has a very strong story.
Fujinuma Satoru is a Manga artist struggling to make a name for himself, and works in a pizza shop to make a living. But what makes him special is that he experiences what he calls Revival, an ability that allows him to go back a few seconds into the past in order to prevent a catastrophic event from happening, such as a car accident involving a child.
It’s not that simple, however, as soon a tragic event which occurred during his elementary school years regarding a fellow classmate links to future events involving Satoru and his family, and his life takes a turn for the worse. Continue reading “ERASED”
