Update 10/31/13

I'm back...with an update!

Happy Halloween everyone! Anime ramblings once again from me!

How have you all been this week? Seen anything new? I just re-watched Sword Art Online and Sukisho (the latter is a goody yaoi anime about a boy who lost his memory). Obviously towards the end of this update I will discuss this week's Naruto and Bleach. Maybe I should start a new page about anime spoilers. What do you guys think? Leave a comment below.

My recommendation of the week for anime (think I will do this weekly, what do you say?) Anyway...my recommendation is Blast of Tempest (yeah, don't judge the lateness of this recommendation it's just that the manga updated recently). Haha, talk about getting off track. Well one reason for my absolute adoration of this show is the ties to William Shakespeare's "Hamlet" and "The Tempest", but it also alludes to "Romeo and Juliet". The basic premise is about the death of Mahiro Fuwa's family, though it mainly revolves around his sister, and his hunt to find their killer. It is a drama filled with mystery and a hint (when I say hint I mean brushed upon) of romance. So I won't say too much about the story but it is highly recommended on my part.

On a different note:
I AM ADDICTED TO AMVs.

What is an AMV you ask? (Even if you didn't really ask, I'll still tell you) *winks* An AMV is an animated music video. So I love to watch them on YouTube and I have even gotten into making them (no, unfortunately I don't post them because I don't want to face legal issues with YouTube). My favorite ones are as follows.

Watched:
- Naruto "Courtesy Call" by Thousand Foot Krutch
- Multi-Anime "S.C.A.V.A." by Hollywood Undead [Get Up!]
- Multi-Anime "We're All To Blame" by Sum 41
- Blue Exorcist "Bones" by Young

Made:
- Fullmetal Alchemist "Radioactive" by Imagine Dragons
- Bleach "S.C.A.V.A" by Hollywood Undead
- Naruto "Courtesy Call" by Thousand Foot Krutch (purely coincidental)
- Multi-Anime "Tonight I'm Watching You" by Meghan Camarena, Luke Conard, and Joey Graceffa

Multi-AMV are always fun to make and generally are made using whatever videos I happen to have. My favorites of this moment are Bleach, Naruto, Maid Sama, D. Gray-Man, Fruits Basket, Soul Eater, and Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~. I actually made a top three video of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Bleach, and D. Gray-Man. The songs I used were By Myself by Linkin Park, Busy Bein' Born by Middle Class Rut, and Again by Flyleaf respectively.

And there I went off again on yet another silly tangent.

Now where were we? Ah, yes.

Question Time:

1. What character would you cosplay as if you could?
2. I own several anime series on DVD (Bleach, Fullmetal Alchemist, Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~, D. Gray-Man, Vampire Knight, Sailor Moon, etc.), what do you own?
3. If you could live in an anime world, which would it be and why?

(P.S. you can ask questions too)

WARNING! FROM THIS POINT FORWARD: SPOILER ALERT!!!

Naruto

First up is Naruto Chapter 653.

Naruto and Obito are talking about who Obito really is. Naruto explains who he sees: the boy who meant so much to Kakashi and Rin, the boy who wanted to become Hokage. He also notes the similarities between Obito and himself. Obito brushes him off claiming to be the Second Six Paths. Naruto disagrees and offers him his hand.

Obviously that isn't everything that happened but just a quick sum of what I saw as the premise. I'm not really sure what to expect as the outcome but hopefully it ends with the war ending in the Shinobi's favor.

Bleach

Bleach Chapter 555 is here. The moment we've all been waiting for! Ichigo is BACK!!

In the newest release from the master Tite Kubo, we are brought back to the Soul Kingdom where Squad Zero is preparing Ichigo for departure so he can rejoin the battle. Ichigo is dressed in some strange cloak and turban combination with his small Zangetsu attached to his hip and his large Zangetsu on his back. We also get verbal confirmation that he is stronger than ever. Another thing learned is a hint at how he gets angry and has to eat (not sure what this means or if it is some kind of inside joke we missed). Ichigo is last seen racing back to the Soul Society (kind of familiar huh? Racing to the fight between Aizen and the Thirteen Court Guard Squads. Racing to the fight between Aizen and Gin. Racing to the fight between the Soul Society and the Quincy round one).

Can we just scream a bit? SQUEE!! So if you wanna know my Bleach thoughts hop on over to my Bleach page.

Naruto Shippuden

Naruto Shippuden Episode 336.

Blah. This is the most boring arc of the Fourth War. Kabuto talks too much and is really annoying. I really can't wait for it to be over. I want to get back to Naruto and company. Can we just take a moment to appreciate Naruto Uzumaki?


OOPS! Wrong anime. ;) (Hakkenden: Eight Dogs of the East)


Much Better. 

So unfortunately I don't have very many things to say about this silly, silly episode. *sighs* Maybe it's because I read the manga. We shall see. 


Sorry for the boring ending. 

Later!
