Update 1/18/15

Hey guys! So last week was...to say...interesting. Did you all see that the formatting was off somehow? I don't quite get it myself. I can't seem to change it. I just want to see if the same thing happens this week. So I have been obsessed with rewatching Kuroko no Basuke. If I had a third white board I would be writing out information pertaining to KnB. Including information involving the new Extra Game manga. If you haven't gotten in to reading Kuroko no Basuke Extra Game yet, well I totally recommend it. Only one chapter is out so far...but it is amazing.

Anime Genre: Horror 

According to Wikipedia, there are 79 horror anime out there. Here is a list (from those 79) that I actually sat and watched...despite my large aversion to the genre.

Attack on Titan (2013)

Source
Known in Japan as Shingeki no Kyojin, many years ago, the last remnants of humanity were forced to retreat behind the towering walls of a fortified city to escape the massive, man-eating Titans that roamed the land outside their fortress. Only the heroic members of the Scouting Legion dared to stray beyond the safety of the walls – but even those brave warriors seldom returned alive. Those within the city clung to the illusion of a peaceful existence until the day that dream was shattered, and their slim chance at survival was reduced to one horrifying choice: kill – or be devoured!

Blue Exorcist (2009)

Assiah, the realm of humans, and Gehenna, the realm of demons. Normally, these two dimensions would never intersect, but the demons are now intruding on the material world.

One day, she decides to show him the aliens, but an accident occurs and Kuroneko dies while Murakami is left seriously wounded in the hospital. Years go by and Murakami obsesses on finding proof of the existence of aliens because of a promise he had made with Kuroneko.

Tokyo Ghoul (2014-2015)

In modern day Tokyo, society lives in fear of Ghouls mysterious creatures who look exactly like humans -- yet hunger insatiably for their flesh. None of this matters to Ken Kaneki, a bookish and ordinary young man, until a dark and violent encounter turns him into the first ever Ghoul-human half breed. Trapped between two worlds, Ken must survive the violent conflicts of warring Ghoul factions, while attempting to learn more about Ghoul society, his newfound powers,  and the fine line between man and monster.

Yeah, so I don't watch a whole lot of horror...but when I do...I cringe into the closest thing I can (be it a pillow, my dog, or even my sweatshirt). I do not handle horror very well. What is your favorite horror anime? Do you watch horror or are you with me on the "nope" factor? 

Oops...No Manga Review

Take a Free Video Instead

So I planned this truly extravagant manga review...but I have been so busy the last few weeks sorting out my life that I haven't had the chance to write it. So for now, I give you this cute video and hope that you can forgive me until I can post my standalone review of the manga series, Demon Love Spell.



I recommend watching all of ShutUpAdachi's Free videos. They are funny as hell. Particularly the Little Mermaid One.

"Ménage a trois?" 

Character of the Week

So as far as character of the week goes. We have a favorite from a favorite anime. 

Lord Marksman and Vanadis' Tigrevurmund Vorn. 

Source

Known by many as Tigre, he is a 16-17 year old marksman who uses the Vorn Black Bow. (Source)

His voice actor is Kaito Ishikawa. He is known for roles such as Harutora Tsuchimikado from Tokyo Ravens, Tobio Kageyama from Haikyuu!, and Ignacio Axis from The Pilot's Love Song. He will be known for Shiho Kimizuki from Seraph of the End and Kohei Izumi from World Trigger. (Source)

He is strong, kind, loyal, and brave. He is willing to do almost anything for his people...including giving up his own freedom. He shares a close bong with everyone he meets. Some people don't like him until they realize how strong, kind, and loyal he is. 

Several of the Vanadis hold romantic feelings for him. Particularly Elen. However, it hasn't been said whether he holds the same feelings, but he does care deeply for them. 

What are your thoughts on this character of the week? Want to see someone specific, let me know!

Fairy Tail Episode & The End

No Spoilers...I promise.

So that is it for this week. I hope you enjoyed it. For those who read my spoilers...well. After writing down my thoughts on the Fairy Tail episode. I realized...I really do not like this arc at all and cannot wait until it ends. Here are my thoughts (non-spoilers). 

Fairy Tail 

Just a few more episodes, I can feel it. Phew. I am still not enjoying this arc. It is almost as drawn-out as the Neo-Oracion Seis arc. Still I said this last week but...I am really digging the opening credit. 


So I promise that at some point by next Sunday I will have up my manga review, I am just really busy right now. Being an adult...and life type stuff...

So until then. Keep watching anime!

See you next week!

Ja ne.
