As a went to check the news on Anime News Network, I was bombarded by not the plain and informative white background, but a pleasing orange one filled with boobies. Yoko’s boobies from Gurren Laagan, to be exact. After I ogled, I clicked it to see what sort of promotion this was for.

They are streaming episodes online now. Full episodes from what I understand. Considering this is a site that promotes the purchase of anime, I was shocked. BUT PLEASED.

Since I saw Comic Party Revolution there. ❤

Minami-Ke Episode 3

Been a little bit, I need to watch hard to catch up to all the other anime blogs out there with this one. Especially since after this series ends there is another Minami-ke series slotted.

Anyway, this is a seriously Kana-centric episode. It’s basically centered around her growing relationship with Fujioka. It starts off at school, Kana and her friend Keiko. It’s obviously a test day and everyone is getting back their marks. Kana is proud of her score of a 65 (which is failing at my school…?) and refers to it as a ‘very human score’ unlike Keiko’s calculator-esque 100 marks.

Banchou (fujioka) arrives on the scene. Kana thinks she can compete with him; however, as it turns out he scored one point above her. Kana is devastated. She is determined to beat him and makes a bet on it. Loser gets to be the other’s dog. Fujioka eagerly accepts. Hilarity ensues, and even after Kana’s obsessive edits, she still fails to beat Fujioka. However she does not end up being his dog.

Later that night, Kana and Chiaki are sitting around. Kana haphazardly asks Chiaki how her grades are. Chiaki distracts! Distracts with prawn and mayonnaise flavored cracks. Now I don’t know about you guys, but at the time, those sounded delicious. But Kana is onto her ploy! Chiaki shows Kana her near perfect marks, and in retaliation Kana drinks all her milk. Thus proving Chiaki correct that nothing good would come of this.

Kana tries to make nice, but in the end she just drinks all the milk. Not good, since Haruka is making cream stew tonight. =/ Kana rushes to go get some, but falls over ill. Milk will do that to you, fact. She then decides to make dinner herself….Nearly kills them both.

The next day, Kana is ambushed by Fujiko as she sleeps. He states that he really likes her. Kana runs home for Chiaki’s council. Chiaki seems to think that he must…really like her. The next night Chiaki returns home to find the banchou in their house. Kana is attempting to play nice with him. Everything is going fairly well until Haruka makes a comment that he reminds her of Dad. Chiaki, obviously not knowing much of her father, decides to jump at this chance.

In a very…pedophilish way, Chiaki sits down between Fujioka’s legs. After a bit of thought, Kana is alarmed! Fujioka is trying to turn her own sisters against her! She kicks him out. XD

Ani-Monday 12/17/2007 – Blood and Dead Leaves

I’ve missed Ani-monday the past few weeks. Except last week in which they were showing Tin Man (I loved Tin Man, by the way.) But this week it’s back and instead of showing some series that I’m really behind on (Noein >_>) they are showing some great movies, Blood: The Last Vampire and Dead Leaves. Now I’ve never seen Blood, much less it’s series counter-part Blood+ (Which is shown on Adult swim) but I have seen Dead Leaves.

From what I gather the plot of Blood is:

At Yokota Base in Japan, a nervous American military garrison is on the brink of the Vietnam War. However, a greater threat exists within the walls of the heavily-guarded compound: Vampires. A team of top-secret undercover agents learn of these blood-sucking fiends and dispatch the mysterious Saya to hunt down and destroy them. This beautiful yet dangerous vampire slayer must use her extraordinary abilities and lethal Japanese sword to save the humans from the vampires who neither fear nor are susceptible to sunlight.

It doesn’t sound too bad, persay. I’m just not big on vampire anime…Why don’t they ever make Werewolf anime? For serious.

I’m actually pretty pumped to re-watch Dead Leaves. It’s interesting and crazy and hilarious!

Pandy and Petro found themselves naked and in a desolated field. They didn’t know who they were and why they were there. They gave free reign to their desire, and rob citizens of foods and weapons. Soon, they were run after the Police. After a violent car chase with the Police, they were finally arrested and transferred to the prison, “Dead Leaves”. There, it was a costume that the guards kill the prisoners to kill time. Dead Leaves is a horrible prison where no one could escape from.

If you watch it you will either be mind raped because your taking it far too seriously, or you’ll laugh your ass off. Maybe both? Who knows.

Shigurui Episode 6 ~ Cry of Childbirth.

This episode was the very fitting midpoint of the twelve part series. And what an episode it was! I haven’t been quite this interested in Shigurui since the third episode.

It starts off with Iku tied up in a shack. Ushimata is there watching over her. It turns out that Kogan has become very aware of Iku and Irako’s love affair and betrayal. Her nipple was cut off as punishment, oh….and Ushimata eats it. Yeah, from the drool coming out of his face cuts, I’d say it was pretty tasty. He then states that it is time for Irako’s punishment to begin.

Outside it switches to where we left off. Ushimata is there now too. He says that Irako must test his skills against him before he can learn Nagereboshi. Things do not go as Irako predicts, Ushimata jams his wooden sword into his chest and when Irako is on his kness he seriously wounds him my stabbing his back. Thus the punishment begins.

It is Fujiki’s turn now, Irako is very disturbed by this as he is badly wounded. Kogan asks if he wants to stop. Irako, thinking that this is still a Nagareboshi training session, summons up his strength and faces Fujiki. An epic slow motion sword battle occurs. Irako and Fujiki seem equally matched; however, blood is about to drip into Fujiki’s eyes. Irako tries to use this as his advantage, but it does not work out.

Irako seems to go into a dream land where Kogan is crazy again (and eats a sake cup), he is the successor of the Dojo, Mie loves him, and his mother moves in with him. When he wakes up from such delusions Fujiki is punching the ever living shit out of him. And for once! It is not in slow motion! And it is b-e-a-u-ti-ful!

Irako passes out and is woken up by Iku stabbing him with a hot poker (this wasn’t her choice, of course) he rolls outside where the landscape is surrounded by blue fire and the moon is red. This time he must fight Kogan himself. Back at the dojo Mie is smiling. She is obviously happy about whatever she thinks is happening.

After Kogan states that he knows of Irako’s betrayal he…does Nagareboshi (I believe) and cut’s Irako’s eyes. There is some great insight after that where Irako screams in Iku’s arms. A monster was born that night. Apparently two monsters were born, which I assume would be Fujiki, whose due to lose an arm now anytime. What an awesome episode…

Manga Review Claymore Volume 1

So I’m a little late for the Claymore fanbus that left when the anime came out, so what? I can still enjoy a good manga righto?

Plot Summary: There have been brutal murders taking place in Raki’s home town, six of them to be exact, each one more vicious than the last. It is decided that they need to call in a special breed of slayer to track down such a fiend. A claymore. The claymore comes to the town, a strange silver eyed girl that is as stoic as she is attractive. Raki immediately takes a liking to her and follows her about town.

After hours of prodding Raki returns home with out so much as learning her name. There he finds his brother has slain his family that he had been staying with. His brother was the demon (yoma) that had been committing all the murder! The claymore comes crashing through the building to save Raki, she admits that she smelled the yoma on him and just had to follow him.

This cocky yoma attacks the claymore. It becomes clear that she is no mere human, she is part yoma herself. The yoma is slain and the claymore leaves town. Raki feels terrible that she thought that he would be too traumatized to remember her. So in a last ditch effort, he asks her name. Her name is Claire.

Later we learn more about Claire’s…well, pimp. A man in all black with round sunglasses. She later gets ambushed by six yoma, but makes it out relatively unharmed. The story continues with Raki wondering through a wasteland. He succumbs to the elements but is saved by…a claymore? The man at the Inn tells him that this Claymore is in the forest waiting for him. Raki immediately realizes she is not a Claymore as she refers to herself as such.

Luckily Claire is there to save the day, feeling some sort of human emotion, she takes Raki on as her chef. As they travel, we learn that Claire does not have the same physical needs as a human anymore and is actually envious of Raki having things such as hunger. However, this is cut short when Claire’s pimp delivers her a message.  She received a card with another claymore’s symbol on it. This symbolizes that she wants Claire to kill her before her Yoma overcomes her humanity.

Review: I wasn’t so sure if I would like Claymore when I first heard about it. Even if it is the ‘Shounen Berserk’ I just…didn’t much care for the sound of it. There’s also a different matter of my biased against female main characters, which is incredibly anti-feminist and pretty unexpected.

Besides all that,. Claymore turned out to be…decent. So far no differentiation between the Yomas, but there’s still a ways to go. Claire, as a main character, didn’t bother me quite as much as I would have expected. My only qualm I had with this was the way heads are drawn? Most of these people look pretty similar or have really large foreheads.  Art plays a very essential role in my liking of a manga, so we’ll see how this ends up.

Shigurui Episode 5 ~ Nipple-Bean Splitting.

Alrighty, long time no see Shigurui~ Finally more episodes started appearing on Crunchyroll, and they are as mind-raping as usual.

The episode starts off with Irako and his barbaric ways. He’s fighting someone, and if the lower quality didn’t effect what I was watching, I believe he beheaded him. Definitely killed him. Other than that it is a fairly mundane day at the Kogan-ryuu dojo. At night, however, is when things really heat up. It turns out that Iku and Irako are having an affair.

A affair behind master Kogan’s back. Irako mentions that she would be his mother when he marries Mie, so he decides to not have anymore flings with Iku. Iku doesn’t much care for this idea. As much as I dislike Irako, I’d rather have him than a creepy old man.

Oh, I forgot to mention. Irako is not the son of a swordsman, but a dyed cloth merchant. The next scene shows him going to a woman’s house and brings her food. She’s gawd-awfully ugly. >_> I doubt she is a whore though. From the dialogue he says to her later, I wager she is Irako’s mother.

Now the thing that happens next confused me. Why? Because I can’t tell if the woman is Iku or Mie. It could be either one, actually. The whole scene is about some girl who’s pregnant and she’s had the child inside her for ten months. The women about town think it has died in the womb because it is the child of a demon. When she finally gives birth, she is alone and…ugh…Birth scenes have never been so graphic. The crazy thing is that the baby crawls up it’s mother and opens it’s eyes. Yeah.

Obviously that wasn’t real, but still. I don’t know if it was Mie or Iku. The scene switches to Iku with spiders crawling all over her naked body, symbolizing Kogan’s hands on her. Kogan stops and goes to his sword. He’s noticed that Fujiki has take good care of it. Then Iku comes over and he does his bean splitting technique on her.

Guess where? Yeah. Her nipple. I lulz’d. He then gathers all the student at the dojo. Fujiki goes to fetch Irako, Irako than arrogantly tells Fujiki to call him ‘Young Sensei.’ -_-

As they reach the top of the dojo, Kogan is dressed in full samurai gear. He states that he will now teach Irako the secret Nagereboshi technique. Irako is pleased. =/

The episode ends with the pine cones Irako put in a child’s snow man falling out and blood pouring from the holes. Foreshadowing? I think so. I smell a little betrayal coming from Kogan.

Oh hai. >_> Gaiz. >_>

That should explain it, righto? No. Probably not well enough. So recently (when you stopped seeing updates) I got a job. Me, being the gluttonous, greedy, wrathful, violent person that I am, loves money. I hate my job, but it takes up a lot of my time and energy.

 

I know, right? I sit here and type how taxing can that be? Well. It is. I’ve dropped almost all the series I was watching. I’m only willing to watch Minami-ke and Myself;Yourself. So if I am to update over Christmas or on the weekends. It will be about those.

 

Or maybe I can seduce someone else to come here and do the writing. Carl. >_>
