Aion (manga #1)

aionGenres:  fantasy, myatery

Themes:  demons

Objectionable content: moderate – violence, blood and gore, moderate non sexual nudity

 

After losing his both his parents tsugawa tatsuya continues going to school while trying to live up to his father’s last request of becoming a great man. While attempting to do this he tries to help a girl who is being bullied. This girl has a completely cold attitude but he can’t help but want to help, which allows him to discover that she is a sort of immortal who hunts down parasitic bugs who mind control people.

Created by the artist of chibi vampire (anime by the name of Karin) the story here is quite dark and violent but is very strongly held together with the character relations and how the parasites affect people. I only have had the chance to read the 1st manga as I do not believe the rest are translated yet( if they I haven’t heard yet) but I hope the rest of the serious is as inviting and interesting as the first, I do suggest you all take a look at it!

The holy grail, a chalice of power that grants wishes or a weapon of mass destruction?

Shirou Emiya lost both of his parent in a great fire that engulfed a large portion of the city where he lives, this fire also took the lives of hundred and was caused by servants of magi who longed for an ancient artifact, the Holy Grail. These magi and their servants fought for this artifact to grant any wish they might have had, and now it is time for the next war, and emiya along with other he knows are now in it.

Fate stay night is a pretty well-known anime and I’ve heard a lot about it before watching it but maybe I had heard far too much hype about it as I found it less then I was told. The storyline itself is not bad but it takes it time when first starting, and this is not even the points where they randomly make exceptions to rules they state about the wars( like servants having to have masters)

The character relations are far better as each character has their own personality and very few get along perfectly together with creates a great amount of discontent between both enemies and allies alike.

Both of these have good and bad points but when you combine them with the well done fight scenes it works out well, I only wish we had seen more masters in the war.

Dream eater merry

dream eater merryGenres: action , comedy, fantasy

Themes: dreams, other worlds

Objectionable content: moderate – violence and moderately mature themes of death

Congratulation your dreams are now the home of a demon and if it killed you become listless and uncaring.

Many years ago yumeji fujiwara found he could see odd multi-colored aura’s around people and that these aura’s denoted what kind of dreams they would have. He also began having nightmares that he was being chased by cats. Then a girl named merry lands on him and he finds out that she and many others are dream demons  and that many dream demons will forcibly take control of humans to see our world. With her and various allies they gain they go to fight against these hateful and uncaring dream demons while trying to find merry s way back to her reality.

Okay so this is a good find if I do say so. With the story and the character having many different personalities and spins it marks things very nice and  it keeps you guessing for pretty much the entire anime.. I really hope there will be a second season ut other than that I’ll let you decide qhar you think of it, and please do tell me what you do think of it!

The end of rpg’s!

Akatsuki is summoned to the other world of arezard to be their hero and defeat the demon king witch he does. When he returns though he brings the demon kings daughter with him witch was the demon king’s last request. Upon returning he gets told (forced) to go to the school/facility made to train people who came back from other worlds. What awaits him and the demon kings daughter there neither of them could have expected..

The anime’s storyline itself is pretty interesting as it kind of picks up where almost every rpg even close to it leaves off and I must admit that the action in it is also rather well thought out, they even leave no holes in the explanation of people capabilities. There is one thing however that does drive me nuts about this anime however and that is the absolutely ridiculous amount of breasts!

Now I did say it had significant nudity and I was not lying  and it makes sense when you find out that the anime’s main people it is p9nted ar is 17 -44 year old males but I just find that most of it goes past even the point of fan service and is just taking up space. I’ll admit that some points of the M rated parts do contribute to storyline but most are just there for stupidities sake in all honesty. Maybe I’m just broken as a guy for not respecting it but I believe there is just far too much ecchi and almost R rated stuff here.

Side note: ridiculous amount of M rated material though it does not cross over to R rated, though it just barely doesn’t.

 

Dog days season 2

Genres: action fantasy, romance

Themes:  animal people, catgirls, dog girl, fan-service, Harem, other worlds, weapons

Objectionable content: mild, fantasy violence, ecchi, mild

So where as the first dog days had an apocalyptic demon battle this one has, age reversal, body switching and random randomness.

Picking up where dog days 1 left off, summer has come again and shinku goes back to flonyard, only he brings his sister nanami and friend becky with him, and by doing so  gets them made into heroes for different nations two. And with them all as heroes the “wars” get even more ridiculous.

Now where the story does pick up where it left off I find myself needing more. The first season ended on an epic note and had epic battling, whereas thins ones battles stay cutesy though they do contribute to the storyline still.

And as far as the action goes, when becky and nanami come they join the war and end up being as skilled as shinku even though it took him nearly a full season to get to that point. I just find that even though this season keeps the story going, introduces new characters and sets it up for a third season it just seems a bit dry when compared to the first.
