Update 12/16/13

Silence no more. I have stayed quiet, relatively so, about the shows I am currently watching. (Pretty damn proud of myself) So I have been watching two shows that are new to me. (No I don’t count Naruto Shippuden as a show because I talk about it a lot).

Naruto (the original series, Part 1 as it’s called)



I feel fairly strongly about this because I instantly fell in love with Naruto Shippuden, however I am struggling to finish this last season of Naruto. It is completely unnecessary and just a bunch of fillers but the entire main storyline of Naruto is really slow because a lot needs to be introduced before the awesomeness of Shippuden can happen. (Just so you know I started watching Naruto Shippuden in September of this year and watched the entire series, movies included, in a month. So now all I have left is to watch Naruto, plus the three movies for that. <only 16 episodes left till I finish).

No. 6



You probably don’t know this about me yet but I have a serious love-hate relationship with Utopian stories. I love The Hunger Games and Divergent, but I hate 1984 and The Giver. Now I give you No. 6. The penultimate story of Utopian society, it has a little bit of everything from all Utopian stories we have ever seen. I both love and hate it. It is addictive, that’s for sure. Unfortunately it’s only 11 episodes.

Both shows I would highly recommend because they are well worth your time. Even though I say bad things about them, I find them enjoyable enough to watch.

On the other hand, if you really want me to get into never watch them anime’s I could help you with that too. *cough* Princess Tutu *cough* Okay so it’s my own damn fault (I find myself reading that as Jerry Jewell playing Kyo in Fruits Basket) that I left my little sister pick the anime we watched. Huge mistake, but mwahahaha they took it off Netflix so she can’t it anymore. (She won’t watch the Japanese dub on Hulu).

Who am I kidding

An update on Bleach and Naruto reviews. I am thinking that as a Christmas (or whatever it is you celebrate the week of December 22 – December 28) present to you all I will bring it back the week of Christmas.

I have a lot of thoughts so far.



Yay!! Naruto and Bleach back for Christmas!!

(Sorry if you don’t celebrate Christmas, think of it as an early/belated birthday present)

I was thinking one day about characters with similar appearances (to be exact I was in class thinking about it when it was free time).

Allen Walker from D. Gray-Man


Shion from No.6



Toshiro Hitsugaya from Bleach



Sasha from Qwaser of Stigma



Zero Kiryu from Vampire Knight




There are several others but they are evading me. These guys always have some distinguishing feature along with their beautiful white (sometimes silver) hair. Allen and Shion are the ones that stick out most because they were originally brunettes without distinguishable features.

Allen has white hair and a red scar on his eye.
Shion has white hair and a snake scar wrapped around his body.
Toshiro has white hair and deep turquoise eyes.
Sasha has white hair and a scar on his eyes.
Zero has silver/white hair and a tattoo on his neck.

(yeah Sasha and Allen are similar)

Moving on…

So if you follow me on Instagram, you know how much I love music. I spent only two years from preschool all the way to twelfth grade where I didn’t have a music class. I have talked before about how captivating an opening/ending credit has to be in order to draw in viewers. Well I will now list a few of my all-time favorites.

Openings
“Zero” by AAA (Sands of Destruction)
“Doubt & Trust” by Access (D. Gray-Man Op 3)
“Resonance” by T.M. Revolution (Soul Eater Op 1)
“Melissa” by Porno Graffitti (Fullmetal Alchemist Op 1)
“Again” by YUI (Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Op 1)
Shojo S” by Scandal (Bleach Op 10) <did you see them inOtakuUSA??
“Anima Rossa” by Porno Graffitti (Bleach Op 11)
“Blue” by ViViD (Bleach Op 14)
“Rondo” by On/Off (Vampire Knight Op 2)
“Hero’s Come Back!!” by nobodyknows+ (Naruto ShippudenOp 1) <not lying, as I typed this line the song came on my phone…freaky.
“Blue Bird” by Ikimono-Gakari (Naruto Shippuden Op 3)
“Closer” by Inoue Joe (Naruto Shippuden Op 4)
Toumei Datta Sekai” by Motohiro Hata (Naruto Shippuden Op 7)
“Diver” by NICO Touches the Walls (Naruto Shippuden Op 8)
“Lovers” by 7!! Oops Seven (Naruto Shippuden Op 9)
Tsuki no Okisa” by Nogizaka46 (Naruto Shippuden Op 14)

Ending
“Take Off” by 2pm (Blue Exorcist Ed 1)
Shunkan Sentimental” by Scandal (Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Ed 4)
Sakurabito” by SunSet Swish (Bleach Ed 21)
Gekko Symphonia” by Akino & Aiki (Aquarion EVOL Ed 1)
Bakuso Yume Uta” by Diggy-MO’ (Soul Eater Ed 3)
“For You” by AZU (Naruto Shippuden Ed 12)
“Freedom” by Home Made Kazoku (Naruto Shippuden Ed 17)
Changin’” by Stephanie (D. Gray-Man Ed 8)
“Black Night Town” by Akihisa Kondo (Naruto Shippuden Ed 27) < Ending 28 better be as good as this one or I will cry on Thursday when the new episode is released.

There are plenty more but these are ones that I can’t help but stop and listen to. These are the ones that I sing as loud as I can because I love them so much. (Admittedly I wouldn’t want anyone to hear because it would be horrendously off-key and probably the worst Japanese…I’m not very good at speaking other languages. Hell I can’t speak English very well and it’s my native language!)

Another thing I love is scores. I was actually listening to NarutoShippuden’s score while I was cooking dinner one day. The scores I own:

Bleach (movies and show)
D. Gray-Man
Fullmetal Alchemist (movie only)
Naruto (movies and show)
Naruto Shippuden (movies and show)
Pandora Hearts
Vampire Knight (bought both of them at the fair a few years ago)

Of course the only issue with this is that every time I hear “Wandering” by Takanashi Yasuharu I get this feeling of excitement because that is Sauske’s theme in Shippuden and every time it is played you knew Sauske was going to appear. Damn…



Long story short, I love music. (Wow that was short.)

Did you guys see my vlog about my YouTube show “Anime Corner”? No. You should check it out.


Bleach and Naruto back next week. Are you excited? I know I am. I have a lot to say.

Well, I will draw this one to a close.

Hasta la pasta,
xx Kat =^.^=

Question:
If you could be one mangaka for the day who would you be? Why?

P.S. How do you feel about K-Pop? (2pm is a K-Pop group). I have been obsessed with CN BLUE. These guys own my heart right now. What other languages do you guys listen to music in? I have Spanish, Japanese, Korean, Russian (only like once or twice), Italian, and French. See a broad spectrum. Though pop, rock, and hip-hop are all the same no matter what language you listen to.

Okay, this is no longer about anime.

P.P.S. You guys gonna watch Fullmetal Alchemist TheConqueror of Shamballa on Saturday? Tweet me and we can watch along.
