Hey guys! Did you enjoy your first week back in school? No? I don't blame you. I feel so out of touch being busy again because I have been doing nothing but anime stuff. Doing adult stuff like work is tiring. Speaking of anime stuff...for Cyber Week (I believe) Crunchyroll had a deal on Mystery Bags for certain series (these were limited edition). I decided to partake in this deal and bought the Naruto Mystery Bag. I finally received the bag on Wednesday and this is what was inside. (My little sister was with me when I opened it...she was as excited as I was).

Fall was a big time – anime wise. I had started out watching fifteen shows and ended up finishing twelve shows for the season (losing interest in only three shows is awesome). Some were continued from the summer season while other will continue into the winter season. Let’s take a peek at my thoughts on the shows I watched.
- Akame ga Kill (complete): I give it an 9/10. The show was depressing and didn’t follow the manga, however it was amazing. I would recommend it (and did).
- Laughing Under the Clouds (complete): I give it an10/10. Thumbs are way up on this show which simulcast in both Japanese AND English.
- Akatsuki no Yona (cont’d in winter): This ongoing show is decent and so far has followed the manga pretty closely.
- Lord Marksman and Vanadis (complete): I give this series an 9/10. I feel like it is incomplete and deserves a second season.
- Sword Art Online (complete): I give this series 11/10. First, I wish they would continue because this is an amazing and beautiful world. Second, did he propose in the end? (I will so be doing a review of this show later this year).
- Sailor Moon Crystal (cont’d in winter): This ongoing show has A TON of cliffhanger endings.
- Naruto Shippuden (cont’d in winter): One word describes this show…Madara. Enough said.
- Orenchi no Furo Jijo (complete): I give it an 8/10. I am unsure what genre to call it: yaoi? Shonen-ai? Bromance?
- Trinity Seven (complete): I give it an 8/10 for one reason and one reason only…the show is incomplete! The manga is amazing and I would so root for a season two.
- Fairy Tail (cont’d in winter): Want to know what my thoughts on this latest arc of the series? Are you caught up? Read the spoiler section. I’ll give you my thoughts.
- When Supernatural Battle Becomes Common Place (complete): I give this show a 7/10 because I want MORE!! Yet another series left feeling incomplete.
- Gonna be the Twin-Tails! (complete): I give this series an 8/10 because it was a good show and it was very funny. I would seriously recommend it.

Anime I Have Seen
As far as I am concerned, I have a highly addictive personality and shouldn't be allowed to get hobbies. I have been watching anime for almost four years now. My best friend who has been into anime FOR YEARS has said that I surpass her as an otaku...yeah, welcome to my life. So this is what I have watched. I don't know if it is EVERYTHING plus it is missing anime that I have watched over the last few months....so bear with me.

Like I said, not everything is on there. Like I am missing Haikyuu! and most of the fall shows. Plus at some point I will need to add in the winter shows. Also don't forget that this doesn't include movies, ova, or live action. This is purely the anime I have seen. Over four years....I have a problem.
What shows have you seen? Are your lists as extensive as mine? If not more or less? Let me know.
Here you go. This random thing.
Since there is no Bleach this week making this a short blog, I have decided to share with you one of my favorite YouTube videos. It is relevant because it is animated AND it features Attack on Titan's Levi. Enjoy.
Character of the Week
Soramaru Kumo. The second Kumo brother from Laughing Under the Clouds.
The middle ground between his brothers. He acts his age when he is relaxed otherwise he is very serious and mature about his job.
He is determined to surpass his big brother Tenka.
About halfway through the series he becomes even more evolved (not spoiling).
He also has romantic? interest in a beautiful girl he met at the prison.
Plus his voice actor is Yuki Kaji.
Soramaru can do no wrong in my book.

New Fairy Tail episode = disappointment. I am really not impressed with this arc anymore. It was cool in the beginning but now? Not so much. So instead of hating on the show...let's talk about that new OP. First that song is really catchy. I am loving the JPop sound. Second:
(all images are screen shots from www.crunchyroll.com/fairy-tail)
So much HOT! Gray...Natsu...Laxus...hell even Erza is hot!
Now this OP also shows that we can expect an ending soon from this arc but it also hints at a new filler arc that involves some cute fluffy thing and Rogue and another cute fluffy thing...I mean Sting.
What do you guys thing of the new OP? Love it? Hate it?
Well that is it for this week. I am off to get my hair dyed by my aunt and eat some delicious Chinese food. (If you follow me on Instagram, you will certainly see some pictures).
