Why Does Everyone Make a Big Deal About Gintama?

Honestly, this show is stupid. It’s not funny, and it has no real plot. If anything, it’s just an annoying pile of jumbled random shit mixed around in a pot and sprinkled with more shit. This show may have made me lose all hope in anime.

I’m now on episode 30 or 200 and something available episodes. I started watching this ages ago, but it’s so hard to keep going, because the show itself is just so dumb. Before you get on me about this, allow me to take an objective stance:

1. Characters

This is an obvious Lone Wolf and Cub reference. Those movies sucked too.

Gintoki – Here’s a shitty character if I’ve ever seen one. A dude who carries a wooden sword around. He’s lazy one minute, then not lazy the next. He mainly just pisses me off as a character.

Shinpachi-Does he even do anything? Here’s a prime example of an extra character who somehow found his way into a lead role. I don’t even get it.

Kagura – First and foremost, this character is voiced by Rie Kugimiya, who we all know is the most ANNOYING VOICE ACTRESS EVER. Why does she still have jobs? Her voice sucks! It’s all whiney and annoying, I honestly feel like stabbing my ears with a multitude of household items to stop me from having to listen to her squall. And her character? Well shit, I’ve never wanted to punch something so hard in my life. She, like Rie, whines and whines about everything…..God, shut up.

Ayame – Great, just what we need, another masochist WHORE.

Katsura – Lammmmmme. What the fuck is up with that duck thing? If that’s not the stupidest thing I’ve ever seen, then I don’t know what is.

2. Plot

I HATE parodies. God they suck. By the Bleach, the episodes in Bleach have been really awesome lately.

I HATE parodies.

Yea, or lack there of. What the fuck is the plot? “Random shit happends to people. Durrrr” This is the stupidest thing ever. I hate shows without a continuous plot, and no sir, I do not believe that Gintama has one. Instead it’s some new, gay thing everyday, what a load of shit. But that’s not even what I’m mad about.

I watched this show because I heard it was funny. I have yet to laugh or even think that something I’ve watched is funny. It’s all boring non-sense. The characters make dumb jokes, the things they go through are boring, and overall, I find this show to be stupid and childish. Maybe I’d get the humor if I were 12. I wish I had an example of their bad comedy to show you, but I can’t even differentiate the comedic aspects from the non, so I’m out of luck here. This is the most unfunny show I’ve ever seen. K-On was funnier.

Conclusion

Somebody please tell me why this show gets so much acclaim, because I can’t figure it out. All I see is random shit, and as you I don’t think that random comedy is funny at all. Not only that, but the OPs and EDs SUCK.

Shakugan no Shana S OVA 2: PANCAKE YUM

It took a fantastic post by Nyarth to remind me…..”HEY! SHAKUGAN NO SHANA OVA DUDE! WATCH THIS SHIT!” And so I happily and greedily paused myself midway through an episode of Natsu no Arashi S2 (which I will now finish tomorrow because I’m in such a great mood), and immediately went in search of this episode, which took like….a second (I just went to Anime Season). I found one that wasn’t megavideo, and instead got one that was OUTSTANDING quality. Yes, myspace player rules. Everything I’ve watched lately is torrent quality, which is great because I can’t download torrents anymore without fear (fucking torrents). Anyway, I watched the damn thing.

I had a huge smile on my face from the second it started. Holy shit, why am I such a faggot? This show kicks ASS. I could easily watch an entire series of fillers (the OVAs are pretty much just that), and be almost satisfied, as long as Rie Kugimiya, Goddess of the mouth, is involved. How long had it been since I watched anything with her in it? Too long, apparently, because when I heard Shana talk:

She didn't really say words here, but she went, "Ooo." You know that sound only Rie can do.

Well I just jumped for joy, but not really, because jumping for joy is something that only jack asses, and fruity hipsters do, and I m neither. This episode was pretty much nothing more than an episode, to display Wilhelmina doing what she does best, stalking, and taking everything way too seriously.

She should look into stalking as a full time job, she has all the tools essential for stalking: Hiding behind walls, a maid outfit, and ability to control....cloth? It's cloth right? Am I spelling that right, because it doesn't look right.....cloth? Clothe? Nah I guess it's right.

What a great screenshot. Not only does it clearly display her stalking, but it also shows off her obsess of logic (or I should say her Lord, Taimat’s obsession….they kind of share the same passion though, you know?). Basically, I rule.

.     .     .     .     .

Okay, I just got side tracked by blur’s posts, back to writing this. Shana talking put in a fantastic mood….oh wait I already said…..Wilhelmina. She’s become suspicious of Shana because Shana’s been coming home late everyday after school. Even Yuji doesn’t know why. Personally, I figured it out literally right away, based on past episodes (it’s pretty obvious if you ask me). And decides to stalk her, which everyone else  (besides Yuji, who she kind of and then literally kidnaps) is trying to hinder her.

Let’s look at the facts:

  • Shana is coming home late everyday, which means she working on/doing/learning something new.
  • Everyone is trying to stall Wilhelmina from getting back home.

I WONDER WHAT COU- Yes it’s a surprise party for Wilhelmina, which she isn’t even really that surprised about because she has no emotion. And yes, Shana was learning to cook (I guessed that she was learning to cook, considering she sucks at it). What did she make? Something that made me HUNGRY, as all animated food does (I’m pretty sure Baka-Raptor wrote a post about food in anime, because I was going to along time ago and didn’t because I was pretty sure he wrote one. I don’t feel like looking for it though, but I guess I’ll link to his site for no real reason: No-Reason Link). Here’s what she made:

Look at that shit. It look awesome. I wanna try and make that shit. Dutch Pancake eh? Doesn’t seem to hard to make really. flour, eggs, cheese, bacon…..what else is there? Green things, and red things? I might have some green things, but I’m pretty sure I’m fresh out of red things. Are those potatoes. I’m going to look this up.

Okay, a real Dutch Pancake is pretty easy to make:

http://www.grouprecipes.com/48615/dutch-pancake.html

Well, that’s it. I’m stopping this post, so let’s all eat. The real life pancake kicked the shit out of Shana’s shitty piece of crap.

One night after writing the previous sentence, here I am to talk about Shakugan no Shana-tan DOS, which is a must to watch after a Shakugan no Shana OVA.

Rie Kugimiya Engrish is AWESOME. The end.

UPDATE! Yuji crying was fucking hilarious sounding.

Idea For A New Anime

Once in a while, an idea comes along that is so perfect, so genius, so incredibly superior to all other ideas, that you have no choice but to somehow intact that idea, or at least make a post about it on your blog or ISSS. Well ladies and gentleman, I have realized that idea. And it’s actually silly…..it’s been right in front of me the whole time, just sitting there, waiting for me to notice it, kinda like that girl in class who you don’t really notice, but then you see her 2 years later and she’s hot as fuck. That’s right, an analogy such as that must surly have let you know that I’m serious, and so now, here is my idea for a show:

My Anime!

By Glo the Legend

The Premise

Uhhh…………well, the premise doesn’t really matter much, so I’m going to skip it……meh, I’ll make something up really quick, (I’m a genius so it will probably be great anyway)……and at some point, you might think that this is a “troll post” (I hate that word), but it’s not……well it kind of is, but I’m letting you know now to expect something dumb, so it’s not. There’s also going to be a plethora of spelling and grammar mistakes, please ignore the shittiness.

Let’s see, uhhh……okay.

Studio – Hmmm, I feel like it’s a show with randomness, so SHAFT might be good, but I don’t really want that kind of animation. I like what Silver Lining did with Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu, so I’ll pick them.

Genres: comedy, school, maybe throw some romance in there or something. There will be fanservice, but not much, and it will all only be for the sake of comedy. No panty shots or still frames of girls covering themselves up while going, “Nyaa~!” or any bullshit like that.

In a school in Japan, there is a girl named, oh hell, Aiko. There’s also another girl named……let’s sayyyyy Rin. Aiko and Rin are rivals, and the school happens to be split down the middle with fanclubs. Half of the school loves Aiko, and the other half loves Rin. In the school, they’re almost like political parties….this is also an all girl’s school, by the way. This is a co-ed school, by the way, although both Aiko and Rin are quite obviously girls. So anyway, the school has two fanclubs, and the fanclubs are obsessed with their idols (this includes teachers, who display their bias in many many ways). It’s kind of like a school filled with only Red Sox and Yankees fans, so basically everyone gets on everyone’s nerves and argues over which is better.

However, Aiko and Rin are both completely oblivious to this. They don’t even know that they have fanclubs.

One day, a boy named Yoichi (I love that name it sounds sick) transfers to school. Yoichi is a typical piece of shit. He’s bounced around from school to school, and, although he is actually very smart, he never does well in school, because he has OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder). However, his OCD only relates to people’s clothes being either too tidy or too messy. So anyway, on the first day he notices Aiko, who is really hot, but also really laid back (and sort of a slob actually…yet she still has a fan club). Needless to say he goes crazy at how she’s dressed and immediatly rushes over to fix her clothes. Aiko and he immediately hate each other, therefore, Aiko’s fanclub hates him as well (I don’t think I need to explain the fanclub shit anymore, right?).

Next, he meets Rin. As you may have guessed, she dresses way to neat, and is probably rich. Yeah, she’s really rich, and has like…..bodygaurds and shit. She’s very conceited. Her and Aiko hate each other, because they have clashing personalities (slob vs neat freak). So Yoichi sees her and fixes her to be less neat. And so she hates him now too. This basically makes the entire school hate him right off the bat, and he is thrust into a group of the only kids who aren’t fans of either Aiko or Rin which include:

Yuki – She is the most perverted girl ever, and sometimes will be seen randomly tied up in bondage ropes.

Saito – This dude is normal, and becomes good friends with Yoichi. He just doesn’t feed into the whole fanclub deal.

Katsu – He loves to set traps. He sets them all over the place. Sometimes they can’t be explained (like a piano falling out of a cupboard) but his traps will go off, someone will get hit with something, and the show just goes on, ignoring what happened.

Anyway, the rest is kind of cliche, Aiko falls for Yoichi, and so does Rin, and all the while the fanclubs are going at it, and the outcasts get brought into the mix, and everything gets crazy. I just made that up as I went. Personally, I like it.

On to the cast, which is the real meat and potatoes.

The Cast


Aiko – Rie Kugimiya

She is a lazy sloth, but is really hot, and her fanclub loves her slobbiness, which they mistake for a laid back attitude (she’s really just a complete slob). She keeps to herself mostly, and gets annoyed easily. The only thing that she gets really serious for is….uhhh…….hmmm…………..you know what, you guys suggest something in the form of a comment. What is it that Aiko gets serious about?

Rin – Rie Kugimiya

Woah, woah, woah…….both lead females are played by the same seiyu! If you think that that’s bias and retarded, you ain’t seen nothing yet! Anyway, Rin is pretty much a complete stuck up bitch, and does the thing where she laughs into the back of her hand…..can we get a clip?

Perfect. That’s pretty much who she’s going to be.

Yoichi – Rie Kugimiya

Rie can play a guy, don’t think she can’t. You can probably see where this is going, and if you want to stop reading this post now I don’t blame you, that would just mean that you’re a person who can never finish what you start. Now Yoichi is your typical guy. Smart, not too bad looking. Pretty athletic. But he has OCD, where he need people to be dressed in a way that isn’t too tidy, but isn’t too sloppy. Shirts tucked in, but ruffled. High socks not too low, but not pulled up all the way. He feels the same way about bedrooms (only bedrooms).

Yuki – Rie Kugimiya

This girl is perverted beyond your imaginations. She relates everything to sex, and loves to be abused, or to abuse. If you’ve ever seen Puni Puni Poemi, she’s kind of a slightly less random (or some of you might call it, “annoying”) version of…..well, pretty much that whole show.

Saito – Rie Kugimiya

He’s normal. Let’s give him some glasses too. He’s a normal kid with glasses, which means that he’s not normal at all, and is in fact really smart.

Katsu – Rie Kugimiya

He loves to set traps. He sets them all over the place. Sometimes they can’t be explained (like a piano falling out of a cupboard) but his traps will go off, someone will get hit with something, and the show just goes on, ignoring what happened. Yes, I copied and pasted this from above.

All of the People/Extras/Dogs, that don’t have any actual lines (or do) but might still make sounds like the dog/cat/thing in Aria (Pyuu) – Rie Kugimiya

This can include the leaders of the fanclubs, teachers (who would play a part but I never named) and everything in between.

OP/ED – Original, Anime Related Tracks by Chatmonchy

I’ve been obsessed with Chatmonchy lately.

Conclusion

Chances are, you aren’t even reading this anymore. But if you are then let me know if you got this far I’ll tell you this:

The whole point of this post was to produce a show where Rie Kugimiya plays every part, although if you want, I guess you can substitute your favorite seiyu in there, although everyone’s favorite should be Rie Kugimiya. You might think that Rie Kugimiya playing every character would be stupid, because you wouldn’t be able to tell who is who and who is talking. Well you can go to hell, this is my ISSS and I can dream can’t I? CAN’T I!?

With this post, all credibility of Eye Sedso has now turned into dog shit has remained the same.

A Review of Everything

Well I took a week off from writing anything (more like I have a shitload of work to do before the end of the semester [this is the life of a procrastinator in full effect]), or even doing anything anime or Eye Sedso related, but I did have this draft that I wrote, and just never put up. In it, I review pretty much anything that I would’ve reviewed, had I not been getting my character list out instead.

First are reviews of shows and stuff that I finished I want to just say that it is becoming very hard for me to watch anime at all, for several reasons:

  1. Whenever I start an episode, I can’t seem to get through it without my shitty computer shutting off from “overheating”. FYI, it’s NOT overheating, it just THINKS it is, because it’s a PIECE OF SHIT. I would LOVE to get a new one, but for that I need MONEY, and finding a job right now is NOT EASY (especially if you don’t look, like me….that being said, the ski slope opens soon [job I have] and training for lifegaurds is going to be soon [another job I will have], so I’m kind of just holding out until then).
  2. I have MUCH LESS TIME on my hands than I usually have, for a few reasons: First of all school work is actually finally starting to become….how you say….heavy? I actually have lot of shit due, and most of this shit takes a lot of time to produce.
  3. I’ve been reading manga more than watching anime, because with manga you can read on your own time. You don’t have to commit 24 minutes to it, you can read for 5, 10, even 654 minutes at a time. Not only that, but the artwork and stories in manga seem to have more depth to them. I actually sometimes go to Borders books and READ MANGA now (once, about a month ago….okay 2 months). I need to buy some manga now.

Just a warning, this is a longgggggg freakin post (maybe my longest ever….well….that I put up all at once at least). This is mostly due to Queen’s  Blade, since Queen’s Blade takes up about half of this post. (chances are, I made 1000 spelling/grammar mistakes).

Section #1: Anime Series Reviews

Pandora Hearts

You know what seems to be a trend? In every anime, whenever characters have a cheers, the camera suddenly shows the outside landscape, and than pans upward to the sky when they all say Kampai!!! Anyone else find that odd?

Anyway, Pandora Hearts was good, and I’ll get to that in a bit, but first let me get to the bad:

CONS:

  • Oz. He started off as a pretty cool character, seemingly not giving a fuck, but then it turned out that he was just an emo bitch, and toward the end especially, he was just miserable as a character, asking himself, “What am I, who am  I, why didn’t daddy love me?’ Enough Oz. Cut the bullshit, act like a man, and go kick some ass.
  • Unanswered questions. Remember when Elliot complained about having that dream? It seems obvious to me that he is to Glenn what Oz is to Jack. Aka. However, they brought this whole “dream” bullshit up, only to never talk about it again. That’s just one example. This, along with it’s lack of ending, leads me to believe that a second season would be coming, but apparently, this is not the case (so I hear). In that sense, this anime was a complete waste of my time.
  • The fuzzy animation quality. Even the torrents were pretty poor quality (which is no ones fault really, you use what you get), but even the high quality torrents that I saw still had that fuzzy, dull look that I absolutely HATE. It reminded me or Shikabane Hime or Kurokami (both good shows however). The actual animation wasn’t bad though, only the color schemes.

PROS:

  • The characters were a HUGE PRO, and a big part of why I liked this series. We have Alice, aka one of the most awesome characters EVER. We have Echo, a minor character who ruled. We have Break and Sharon, both who are awesome either by themselves or paired up. We have Gil….who was…….gay?……Anyway, the characters were great. Even Oz was pretty cool for the most part.
  • The premise, despite the lack of an ending, the plot was actually relatively intriguing. Chains and the Abyss, Alice and the Will, Vincent and his deal (another unanswered…..you know what, there were no answers to anything). The search for Alice’s memory……everything was tied into each other pretty nicely, and for the most part, I found the plot great.
  • The comedy was awesome. I went into this in another post that I don’t feel like looking for, but the comedy was done pretty nicely, and put in at the right moments (although I guess that is mainly credit to the manga, if the anime copied it).
  • Alice. Without her, I may have dropped this show.

For this, I give Pandora Hearts an average

FINAL GRADE = 4

Bill sent Pandora Hearts into the Abyss, but it managed to claw it's way out.

Spice and Wolf II

Well, the first season was awesome. And the second season was more awesome. I don’t really have much to say here, so I’ll just list whatever about the show (There will be spoilers in this little list, but only in the little list):

  • Horo was in it, so it was good.
  • Lawrence sold Horo off to some guy in marriage.
  • Lawrence sold Horo off to the church.
  • Lawrence sold Horo off to people for sex, and collected the money Well, he might have well have (had well? I don’t know the right grammar here).
  • Horo got drunk.
  • Horo and Lawrence plotted and schemed.
  • Lawrence confessed his love to Horo!!!! Unexpected! (actually it’s not that big of a surprise).
  • There were awesome money transactions.
  • Several BAM moments.
  • Great new supporting characters.

There was probably more, but I really want to watch Gintama, so I’m going to finish this up…. The second season of Spice and Wolf was even better than the first, which was awesome, and seeing as the first got a grade of 5^^ (which is my highest grade in my awkward system), this season also gets a

FINAL GRADE = 5^^

Bill tried to shave Horo's tail in an attempt to win....BAD MOVE BILL.

Kanamemo

Clockwise from the top left (saki bottle): Haruka (pedophile), Yume & Yuuki (lesbians), Mika (tsundere/lesbian for Kana (in my opinion)), Kana, Saki (boss), Hinata (Money).

Don’t watch this, it sucks. The first episode was okay, and then it was all downhill from there, as the series became riddled with repetitive, stupid plots, and retarded characters. At one point, it took me a week to get halfway through one episode.

Basically, it’s a show about a little girl who loses her grandma aka entire family (she kicked the bucket, meaning she’s fucking dead), and is now looking for a place to stay. What she finds is a newspaper delivery service that offers boarding to it’s employees, of which are compiled of, a 4th grade boss, a lesbian pedophile alcoholic, a girl with a money obsession, and a lesbian couple. She also meets Mika, an employee from a rival paper who she is destined to have lesbian relations with, once they are both of age.

Sounds like it could might be good, right? It actually really doesn’t, but Rie Kugimiya is in it, so I had to watch it. No surprise, but it ended up sucking pretty bad. Each and every single character was incredibly one dimensional. The only characters I found decent were the 4 year old boss and Mika. The money girl was okay too, only because she was normal and didn’t get on my nerves.

I struggled through it, until I finally got to the last episode. Ironically (and I love irony) I actually thought that the last episode was funny, and enjoyable. Maybe because it had great scenes where Mika and Kana pretend to be on bikes, and Kana dies (for pretend, which makes it pretty remarkable). It’s completely retarded, and I like stuff like that (because I am completely retarded). Even Haruka, the pedophile, managed to do something funny. She told Kana that she would like to “have” her, but Kana, who was not listing, and was instead thinking about a book she wanted to buy, absentmindedly said, “2800 yen”. Haruka went and got the money, assuming that Kana wanted money for sex. Misunderstandings are funny sometimes (this is the only one that was funny in this show). Actually, five seconds late (can you tell that I’m watching this episode as I write this?) Yuma tells Kana to pick up 2 notebooks tomorrow, and that she could keep the change (which would be enough for Kana to buy her book). Kana declines, and not one second later, Yuuki (Yuma’s lesbian lover) comes in holding 2 notebooks, displaying that she is completely Yume’s bitch.

It’s the last episode and the last episode alone that bumps this anime up to an amazingly low

FINAL GRADE = 3

Bill took a 2x4 and bashed the pedophile's head in. Not just because she was pedophile, but because she was fucking annoying.

If you want to know my favorite character, consult The Character Page, under, “K” (obviously).

Tokyo Godfathers

I’ve had this movie on my computer for about 4 months now, just taking up space. Why I hadn’t yet watched it is beyond me. Truth be told, I was a little put off by the premise of hobos carrying around an infant for an entire movie. After literally just finishing it (at least when this post was originally written), I can now say that judging a book (or in this case, movie) by it’s cover is the one thing you should never do. This movie was absolutely fantastic.

If I could sum this movie up in one word (and it just so happens that I have just the word to do so), it would be:

BAM

Every second there was a BAMmy BAM BAMerific BAMpster waiting to kick me in the face. I actually was kicked in the face so many times that I no longer have any teeth, and my nose is broken, and that’s a good thing. Let me rewind (don’t worry, no spoilers here).

This centers around three homeless people: a runaway girl, a homo (I like to refer to him as a hombo [homo + hobo]), and a man who seemingly threw his life away (I don’t want to spoil). They find a baby, and decide to bring it back to it’s mother. Now what makes this movie truly great is the pasts of each of the main characters, and how everything seems to come together in a GIGANTIC PLETHORA of HUGE BOMB SHATTERING and AWESOME COINCIDENCES. There are SO many coincidences and awesome turns, that I couldn’t help but punch several holes in my wall, just out of sheer joy (lol, can you imagine me jumping around my room laughing and punching holes in my wall? I can completely see myself doing it, and that’s scary).

The animation was FANTASTIC. Notice the colors. What movements! What power! (that’s sort of an inside joke) This is why I love animated movies. They’re so much more alive then series. The movements of the characters are so fluid when compared to a series (some exceptions). Tokyo Godfathers might even crack a TOP FIVE on my top ten animated movies list. In fact, it definitely does (now where did I put that list…)

.   .   .   .   .

Ah, here it is…..really? Howl’s Moving Castle isn’t better than Akira! I need to revise this a bit……annddddd:

  1. The Girl Who Leapt Through Time
  2. Akira
  3. Tokyo Godfathers
  4. Howl’s Moving Castle
  5. Steamboy
  6. Princess Mononoke
  7. Spirited Away
  8. Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea
  9. Perfect Blue
  10. Kiki’s Delivery Service

That’s right, I gave it the three spot. this was fantastic.

Shakugan no Shana-tan 3

The best one yet, and adding Hayate to the roster of shows on JCStaff certainly didn’t hurt. I really don’t have much to say, but this, just like all of the -tan shorts, was very amusing and entertaining and funny and awesome and great an-

Section # 2: Anime Series First Impressions:

Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu: Purezza


Okay, it took me watching this new season for me to realize just how awesome the last season was. Not only that, but I just watched episode 3, and to my surprise, I found Rie Kugimiya voicing a typical rich, tsundere character, and also using the main lead character as her butler. I’ll stop there and just say that it pretty much mirrored an episode of Hayate no Gotoku…..well, it was similar at least.

What can I say, I knew that that it would only be a matter of time before Rie Kugimiya was in this show, and she even made a short reference to Taiga from Toradora (at least that’s what I saw it as), aka her best performance ever. I fuckin love this show (even though it is extremely corny, very stupid, and completely retarded). Not only that, but we also got a new maid, named Koko or something. The reason why she is great is that the only words that she speaks are her name, which happen to be “Koko, koko”, (just like a Pokemon!) but the one thing that makes her great is her ability to pretty much kill anyone, due to the use of a weapon that looks very very very very similar to Dokuro-chan’s weapon Excaliborg (or whatever it’s called) from Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan (which is a fucking hilarious show done by the same studio I think…..or the same director……or something lik- you know what it’s in another one of my posts, go look for it).

Section #2.5: Manga First Impressions

XBlade

Okay, so I was checking up on TJ’s blog which usually reviews only awesome shows and manga, and I came across XBlade, a manga I had somehow never heard about, and later found that it is one of the greatest mangas I’ve ever read (after 2 chapters) and is filled with so much bad ass bad assery and assnes that isn’t good, that the whole God damn thing is one giant, continuous BAM. Just reading it puts hair on your chest. Hmmm. You might not get it, or might be underestimating this manga with that, so here’s this:

Normally I make all of my pictures sized to 500 x whatever, but I made this one 600 x whatever, because it’s so fucking sick that I developed a fetish for vomitting by reading it (that was just too gross). It’s awesome…..too bad I already caught up to the manga…

Ultimate!! Hentai Kamen

I should first point out that this isn’t hentai as in porn. There is no nudity. In fact, if I were to compare this to any other anime/manga, I’d say that it’s like Dragonball Z. Basically, this manga is a bit childish, but is also really really funny, and I started reading it by accident. I meant to watch Until Death Do Us Part, but the scroller is shitty, and I somehow started reading this. Speaking of Until Death Do You Part….I’m actually thinking of dropping it (which I won’t acually do), mainly because I’m reading it, but I have no idea what the fuck is going on.

Mahou Sensei Negima!

Pretty much just like the first show, which I consider one of my favorite shows (top 20? if not than certainly close). Awesome. I could read this really quickly if I wanted to, but I’m going to try and go slowly.

Section #3: Queen’s Blade:

Did you think I had forgotten Queen’s Blade? Shame on you. There’s  reason why I save Queen’s Blade for last, and why it get’s a whole section to itself. I may have not put out any posts about it in the past 2 and a half weeks, but I’ve been watching, and I’ve been liking. No longer is this show just a ridiculously hilarious fan service/softcore porn show. Now, Queen’s Blade actually has a good plot, and interesting twists. I actually anticipate episodes now, for different reasons than previous. Ready? Here are all of my episode reviews:

Episode 6

This fight (#6) actually changed my mind about Claudette. I used to hate her, but now I kind of respect her resiliancy and slight bad assness. She finally stands up and exclaims that she doesn’t give a fuck, she’s going to be the Queen:

WINNER = Claudette

Meanwhile, Irma, (my 2nd favorite active character), is being hunted by EH-Risty (Evil Hot Risty). However, when hope seems lost, her old master shows up and rescues her. Personally, I love this development in the plot….that’s right, DEVELOPMENT in the PLOT. In Queen’s Blade! I love it!

Elsewhere, Airi (my favorite active character) is still being nagged by Cattelya’s bastard child, and because of this, she hasn’t really been able to eat (human life force) in front of the kid. Airi has kind of become less of a bad character, and more of a gaurd dog to Rana, but I like characters who change, and Airi has an awesome scythe, which is why she wins as my favorite charcters. Anyway, Tomoe catched Airi about to feast, and then tell her that she and Shizuka will take care of the bastard child instead. Airi veiws this as an opportuniy to eat (human life force), and flies across town to get a meal, but right when she’s about to eat, Rana, being the bastard that he is, grabs her skirt….how he manages to catch with someone who was flying is beyond me, but it is then decided that they will be together for the rest of this season (apparently). In my opinion, I think that as long as Airi is paired with Rana, she won’t get frozen in yellow carbonite like her counterparts, Menace and Mellon (I forgot to tell you, Menace got frozen in yellow carbonite).

Up next is another Queen’s Blade battle, this time it’s

Queen’s Blade Fight 7: Tomoe vs Elina

Personally, I hope Elina gets her head cut off and dies. I hate her stuck up bitch additude. It’s fairly obvious that Tomoe is going to win (I feel like she’s destined to meet Reina in the finals), so I look forward to this. I find it kind of funny how Elina fouht in fire  during the first fight, and now is fighting in snow during her second one. That kind of sucks.

Queen’s Blade Fight 8: Irma vs EH Risty

Needless to say, I have a bad feeling about this fight. I have a feeling that Irma is about to get the boot. You can’t beat EH Risty, and her whole conversation foreshadowed pretty  blatantly that she couldn’t win, just from the general tone and Echidna’s little monologue at the end. Just don’t like it. Of course, I could be wrong, maybe Irma knocks Risty back into reality or something.

Episode 7

One thing I’ve noticed is that the fight scenes do two things:

1) Everyone’s shirts rip, and both fighters are left topless by the fight’s end.

Randomly, EH Risty's shirt becomes see-through.

2) The fight sequences are getting pretty good.

It's so quick that my print screens can't even keep up.

The same can be true for the fight between Irma and EH-Risty (as I obviously just showed). This fight ruled, despite it’s shortness in length. I loved the music, and the ice cavern. What also made this great was the flashbacks of Irma’s past during the fight, as well as Echidna’s little monologue. I thought it brought a good amount of drama to the fight. However, they didn’t let us forget that this is still Queen’s Blade, and kind of ruined a dramatic scene, after Irma get wailed on by that spiked ball you see in the above picture. after getting smacked in the back, she stands up (or manages to get to her knees anyway) and then coughes up blood, and falls backward, as dramatic music that actually really fits the scene  plays in the background. But whoops, she’s not wearing a shirt, soooooo

Holy mother of God.

Instead of feeling like, “FUCK, Irma fucking DIED. I’m pissed (because she is….or was, my second favorite acting character)”, I instead just laughed.

WINNER: EH Risty

After the fight, we see a similar pattern play out, as the scene moves to Airi and her dilemna with Rana, and how she’s all “OMG a kid OMG.” It’s becoming noticible that her weak state (due to lack of human life force) is starting to take it’s toll, and I don’t believe that she’s going to be surviving her next fight.

At the same time, Echidna finds an inconcious (or dead) Irma, and has to deal with her. In a sense, both are dealing with feelings of being a parent figure (or older sister figure) in looking out for the young ones. On to the fight between Tomoe and Elina.

Almost right away Tomoe loses her shirt (because she’s a whore). Elina is using mind games so that she can win (because she’s a huge lesbian whore). However, Tomoe unknowingly FLIPS THE SCRIPT, and uses mind games on Elina when she tell her that she and Reina (whore) ate and slept together.

Does anyone think that Elina looks like a whore right here? Because I do.

Does anyone think that Elina looks like a whore right here? Cuz I do.

When Elina hears this, she gets so upset that she kills herself by strangling herself to death.

.      .      .      .      .

Okay actually Tomoe just literally kicks the shit out of her (well she kicks her at least).

A topless Tomoe is not one to tango with.

WINNER – Tomoe

And then, just to remind you that this is still Queen’s Blade:

Really, you weren't expecting this?

Up next we have an awesome fight, between Nanael and Airi. Both of them are hungry, because they haven’t eaten, and they’re both some form of spirit. They’re actually like mirror images of themselves, now that I think about it. I don’t know who will win this. I almost feel like Nanael will lose, because she’s stupid, she bet on herself (never a good thing), and she’s a dirty whore (look at the picture). Honestly this fight looks like it will be more of a comedy act than a fight.

However, before this gets started, we have a bombshell dropping, as Shizuka reveals to Tomoe that she’s actually an assassin hired to kill her (Tomoe) and thus, she tries to kill her. GASP!

Of course, this turns out to be a lie, and Skizuka just wanted to fight Tomoe so that Tomoe would have no more weaknesses (which makes perfect sense….oh wait, no, it’s just stupid). So Tomoe obviously kills (yes, kills) Shizuka, and then cries like a bitch. Queen’s Blade is getting HEAVY.

Corny montage of Shizuka plays with music. This is good, because it means that Irma must be alive (she had no montage).

Episode 8

The fight between Airi and Nanael starts, but isn’t being shown anywhere (mainly because it’s being held in front of Queen Aldra, which means someone is getting frozen in yellow shit).

Anyway, as the fight progresses, both fighters are tired, and it appears as though Nanael has the upper hand. Thinking quickly, Airi sheds her clothes, and attacks using “Bra-Panty Slut Combo”

Not kidding, it's a legit Queen's Blade move.....I read about it.......IN A BOOK!

Then, as what usually happens with all of my favorite characters, Airi FUCKING DIES.

Maybe I should choose Reina as my new favorite character, so that she could die. Let’s take a look back on my favorite characters, and what happened to them:

Allean – Held back by a worthless, pantsless loli. Lost and was eliminated from Queen’s Blade.

Irma – Got completely raped by EH Risty. Lost and was eliminated from Queen’s Blade.

Airi – Started becoming awesome, was held back by a worthless, tiny kid. Fucking died.

Fuck me right? In related news, I now absolutely despise the character of Nanael, and hope that she dies. She’s so stupid and that little fucking wing she has is annoying as fuck. I mean, why is she even participating in Queen’s Blade anyway? Sometimes, I just want to take her by the throat an-

Can you get back to the review?

Can I…What!? Who the fuck are you to tell me what to do!? You want a review? Here a review of the rest of the episode:

  • Rana and The Dwarf Girl whose name I always forget talk, and Rana decides to help said dwarf girl reforge the sword. I guess that means that the dwarf girl is about to die, since everyone who hangs around Rana gets the ax.
  • Reina is a whore.
  • Reina’s dad is planning something to take back the throne.
  • Melona is freed from the yellow stone, due to the fact that holy milk was spilled on it, mainly due to the fact that Nanael is a clumbsy whore. This is pretty big news I guess, but whatever.
  • Reina is a whore (still)
  • the dwarf’s name is YMIR! (hits himself in the face with a bottle of contact solution [it was close by])
  • The next fight begins! I can’t wait for it, because one of my two least favorite characters will lose!

Queen’s Blade Fight #10: Nanael vs Reina

Suddenly, I don’t hate Nanael anymore. In fact, I’d say that she’s now my favorite active character!

What a fucking pussy you are Nanael...and you don't have any milk left because you don't put a cap on the bottle....wouldn't that make more sense?

WINNER – Reina

*facepalm*

Episode 9

So the last episode ended with the next two battles announced to be

Queen’s Blade Fight #11: EH Risty vs Claudette

and

Queen’s Blade Fight #12: Reina vs Tomoe

Honestly, I don’t care who wins first one (leaning toward Claudette actually), but I really want Tomoe to win her fight, since she is now my favorite active character, and Reina absolutely pisses me off. This means that EH Risty and Reina will win their fights (I’m assuming). The count planned to take advantage of the final Queen’s Blade fights by attacking with his troops, but as it turns out, the fight between Claudette and EH Risty is being held AT THE CASTLE, hindering his plans (literally pretty much copied this word for word from the subs).

Anyway, the count decides to send out the troops anyway, and Elina and Reina have sex.

She's touching you boobs, Reina....your boobs....(you'd think she'd be able to tell, wouldn't you?).

Randomly, we switch back to the fight, where Claudette, who spent last episode watching way too much Pokemon, breaks out her moves:

Claudette used Thunder Shock!

It's not very effective...

Unfortunately for Claudette, it looks like EH Risty, who has been known to like Onyx (both the rapper and the pokemon) seems to have been ready for Claudette’s electric attacks, and as you know, electric is weak against ground type pokemon. Anyway, Claudette is no level 7 pokemon (despite using a weak attack like thunder shock, when thunder or thunder bolt is much better [personally, I prefer thunder bolt. It’s more accurate, and is still a good move]), and so she starts breaking out the body attacks.

Claudette used Skull Bash!

Claudette used High Leg Kick!

With EH Risty now in a weakened state, Claudette decides to finish her off with one of her electric moves, so that she can regain her pride (what’s better than beating a ground type with an electric move? Sex, and that’s it.)

Claudette used...Thunderclap Strike? Wait, I've never heard of this move?

With EH Risty apparently down for the count, Claudette takes this time to talk smack to the count (that wasn’t an awkward sounding sentence or anything). She tell him that he’s a stupid fuck, and that she will become Queen. unbeknowngst to the two of them, Aldra had given EH Risty a Max Revive, and she suddenly comes rushing after the Count, but is blocked by Claudette. However, Aldra also gave EH Risty an X Attack, so she’s like, super strong now (we’re talkin’ red eyes strong). Realizing this, The Count and Claudette try to run, but as any good pokemon trainer knows, you can’t successfully run when you’re facing another pokemon trainer. Eventually, EH Risty uses Fissure. and even though it misses 4 out of 5 times, this time it does the job. As you know, fissure kills any pokemon in one hit, and since Claudette was fucking awesome in this fight, and I actually really like her character, and was rooting heavily for her to win, she of course FUCKING DIES. That’s right, she’s fucking dead. Good for me. i bet Tomoe dies in the nexy fight, and then every single character besides Reina dies after that. STOP KILLING THE CHARACTERS I LIKE!!!!! Now it reads like this:

Allean – Held back by a worthless, pantsless loli. Lost and was eliminated from Queen’s Blade.

Irma – Got completely raped by EH Risty. Lost and was eliminated from Queen’s Blade.

Airi – Started becoming awesome, was held back by a worthless, tiny kid. Fucking died.

Claudette – Cheated out of a victory by the Queen. Fucking died. Oh good, she didn’t die, she just lost.

This is pissing me off a little.

WINNER – EH Risty

UPDATE! NYX APPEARANCE!

Since they showed Nyx, it's apparent that they might not be done with her character just yet. I have hope that she is able to kill Elina (or at least rape her in an embarrassing, Queen's Blade sort of way) to complete her revenge!

After this a bunch of shit happens, although not much of it is important. Tomoe kicks the shit out of some trees (oooo real hard). And Melon steals Nanael’s milk, because Nanael is retarded and can’t realize something obvious when it comes along (I thought she knew Melon was not to be trusted? What a moron, she deserves it). Then it shows Aldra looking at her frozen yellow stuff collection. Then it cuts to the ED which is basically a place for Menace to act like a stripper.

Episode 10

To start out, Nanael is getting hammered off some milk, which is the most abundant of all liquids in the world of Queen’s Blade. Some bullshit happens, and she eventually wanders into the woods, looking for Flabby Pink, which I think is a much better name than Melon. There, she finds Tomoe, who has apparently ascended to the level of unstable psycopath bent on killing bamboo trees.

Too bad Tomoe isn't facing a bamboo tree in the next fight.

A bunch of other stupid bullshit happens, and then it’s time for the fight, which is being held, coincidentally, at Tomoe’s birthplace. Also, Tomoe looks, FUCKING AWESOME:

Dudeeeeee......DUUUUDDDEEE.....

As Tomoe completely beats up on Reina (something that makes me happy), Ymir (I remembered her name for once) talks to a crowd about how her blade is being used by Reina. Tomoe is using sick moves, and is just beating down Reina as if she were a helpless child. I was thouroughly enjoying it, until Reina said that she, “can’t afford to lose.” Somehow this makes her strong, which is complete bullshit. The end result?

First one to expose both tits loses. Those are the rules.

WINNER – Reina

God damn it you know? Anyway, Ymir makes a shitload of money by selling cheap knockoffs of the blade she HALF made, and Flabby Pink was apparently pretending to be Rana for a while (I kind of spaced out when she said why though). Tomoe is wakes up before the Queen, and my sleep cycle is completely fucked up right now (I woke up form 9 hours of sleep at 1 in the morning).

Bonus Section: Thing(s) I Need:

Here are some thing I really need now:

  • The Girl Who Leapt Though Time on DVD. I really want to watch it again, but my computer struggles when it plays MVK files (and all files, really).
  • More anime movies.

I wish there were a place in CT where I could buy mainly anime stuff, but there really isn’t (sure Best Buy or Fye might sell a few movies/series, and Borders might have a slim manga section, but it’s mainly bullshit stuff). I don’t “do” online shopping anymore, just because.

Was this post long or what?

Best Characters of Every Show I’ve Seen – Part XVIII: “U-Z”

Well, it was fun (not), but now the list ends. I have given my favorite characters of every show that I’ve finished, and now, we end this post. Thinking back, it was probably a good thing that I broke this up (If you want to know how long the post was going to be, then look at The Character Page. Would you have read that whole thing? No. You would not have.)

All in all, this post was 18270 words long…not too bad (it’s really only about 19 pages of content, going by a typical, single spaced Microsoft Word document).

Ultimate Girls -Vivenne Otori

In case you can’t tell by the picture, this might be the dumbest, yet funniest show ever made. It’s so stupid and, well, ridiculous, that it’s retarded (kind of like that sentence). It’s a complete blatant fanservice anime, but what makes it great, is that it knows it. Therefore, it takes the fanservice, and makes it completely ridiculous, which in turn makes it freaking hilarious. One can understand this just by looking at the general overview of the series.

Ultimate Girls is about a hero called UFO man. He has the ability to grow really big, and defeat giant monsters. However, he steps on the three girls, killing them all. He kind of feels bad, so he ends up reviving the girls, and splitting his powers among three girls, so that they can fight the giant monsters. However, the only way they can gain power is by getting embarrassed, so they’re clothes slowly disintegrate when they grow. Also, the only way to beat the monsters is to pull off what appears to be their dicks (but really isn’t). Also, one of the monsters is the writer for the show. The show is a joke.

Wait, what am I doing? Is this a review? I’m supposed to be talking about my favorite character. Well, I don’t really remember the characters much, but I do recall that Vivenne had a lesbian crush on Silk, so she wins…plus she has huge tits.

Usagi-chan de Cue! – Bill the Ass-Kicker

What the fuck? I forgot I even watched this shitpile. Bill the Ass-Kicker destroyed the anime because it was so stupid, so he wins (Note; he was not actually in the anime).

Venus Verses Virus – Lucia Nahashi

Lucia is awesome in so many ways. In fact, here they are:

  • Eye patch covering eye with mysterious yet awesome power.
  • Cold attitude, bent on killing viruses.
  • Lesbian affections.

Venus Verses Virus has the best title ever. The End.

Welcome to the N.H.K. – Misaki Nakahara

Warning: Heavy Spoilers

Welcome to the N.H.K. is arguably my favorite anime ever. I wish I could make a graph to show you, but I can’t (because of lazyness), so instead I’ll just say that as more time passes, this show somehow keeps getting better in my mind. It started out at number 10 on my top ten list, then slowly moved up the list, almost under the radar, until it got to number 2. I honestly should put this at number one, but I don’t want to move InuYasha (because of stubborness). That being said, I should have a nice, long character review (like Inuyasha’s character review).

Misaki Nakarhara is a character that at first appears very charitable. She seems to only want to help people, mainly Tatsuhiro. She helps him to become more open with people, and escape from the hikikimori lifestyle. For most of the show, the audience can clearly see that almost all of the characters have pretty heavy issues (mental issues), that even lead them to attempt suicide (once or twice). However, most people would assume that Misaki is the exception, playing the part of the stable person, who keeps everything in perspective, and instills a sense of balance into the show, almost as if she is the character who keeps everything in place (aka, “The Normal One”). However, we soon see that she’s just as fucked up as the rest of them, and she actually depends on Tatsuhiro’s, well, shittiness to make her feel better, because she thinks of herself as a huge piece of shit (like a really big piece). She even tries to kill herself after Tatsuhiro gets work and actually starts to get involved in society.

So why do I like Misaki? Because the life she lives is a lie, and underneith it all, she’s a shit pile just like everyone else.

xxxHOLiC – Zashiki Warashi

She is a sprite, and without question, the best character in this show. As for reasons why I like her? I can’t really say, maybe her pure attitude and general awesomeness. I

Honestly, this makes no sense to me, since I usually hate the whole “shy girl” character. But she’s the best. Certainly better than Himawari.

Zero no Tsukaima (all seasons) – Louise Françoise Le Blanc de La Vallère

Well, I was trying to hold this back, but I’m going to take this opportunity to voice my excitement that the new season of Zero no Tsukaima will be airing in February. I freakin love that show.

As for the pick…….was there really any question? Rie Kugimiya? Classic.

Zombie Loan – Michiru Kita

The last entry. Honestly, this show was meh. It was so-so. It was really nothing special, and that’s too bad because the whole premise was pretty cool. Likewise with the mediocracy of the show, comes mediocracy of the characters. I can say that I don’t really feel anything toward any of them, but if I had to choose, I’d choose Michiru, for no other reason than her powers, which can see a black ring on a person’s neck. The darker the ring, the closer that person is to dying. It’s really just a variation of other abilities (Torch flame from Shakugan no Shana, Shinagami Eyes from Deathnote). It’s cool I guess.

And so it ends. Tomorrow Eye Sedso turns 1 year old!  I guess I should write a post about it, since everyone else does.

Best Characters of Every Show I’ve Seen – Part XVII: “T”

To Aru Majutsu no Index – Misaka Misaka

If you remember the post this picture is from, this really shouldn’t come as a surprise, but I love the character of MISAKA, which could be any one of the thousands of clones of Mikoto Misaka. Back then I described how awesome she was by the way she talks in the third person, and also narrates her life. This is awesome. Completely awesome. Compile that with the fact that she’s very emotionless, and you have a real winner of a character.

Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 – Yuuki Onozawa

So there’s really not many choices here, and I’m going with Yuuki. Truthfully, he’s nothing special, but I like the fact that, despite being a child, he thinks like a mature person, in that he tries to carry burdens and not slow any other the trio down with his problems (this could also be veiwed as immaturity….I think it might be a little of both). He’s pretty much a class act, and it sucks that…..well I don’t want to spoil anything (even though I kind of just did).

To-LOVE-ru – Yui Kotegawa

This choice might be a surprise to many of you, but let’s face it, Rito is a bitch who doesn’t take advantage of Lala, and Lala is annoying a lot of the time. I realize most people would pick Golden Darkness, and going by my typical choices of character, I should be choosing Golden Darkness too. But I’m not, and this surprises even me.

Every scene with Yui is just somehow better others. I love how she is a strict person, and yet she’s always found in the middle of boob grabbing or something (so is everyone else in this show). I don’t know, I just like her general personality, I can’t really put my finger on it. Maybe I feed off her embarrassment? Who knows.

Toradora! – Taiga Aisaka

Here we have Rie Kugimiya’s best voice acting job ever. Taiga is certainly a tsundere type character, in that she has a mean streak a mile long, but also has a very emotional side, but keeps her emotions bottled up. However to say that she is a typical tsundere character is kind of wrong, becuase she is a bit different.

Unlike a typical tsundere character, who is simply just not honest with their feelings, Taiga actually is honest with her feelings. She knows that she loves Ryuuji. But she chooses to put her own feelings aside, because she wants Minorin (who also likes Ryuuji) to be happy. As a person, she is actually very giving (for Christmas, she buys presents for the unfortunate….how many of you do that?….I don’t). So yes, she won’t hesitate to beat your ass, and yes, she has a flat chest, and yes she has a soft side, and yes, she is short. But unlike characters such as Shana and Louise, she doesn’t really ask “What is wrong with me?” when she experiances love. She does’nt spend a WHOLE FUCKING SECOND SEASON ASKING PEOPLE WHAT LOVE IS. She doesn’t ask, “Why am I feeling like this?” She knows why she feels the way she does, she just doesn’t want to (at first), and this coupled with the awesomeness of Rie Kugimiya, creates an awesome character.

Touch – Shohei Haruda

He is the fuckin MAN. I mean, let’s look at the facts, he seems to already know everything that’s going to happen and that is happening. I mean, he seems to have been put there as a literary device in the form of a huge ass boxer who can kick everyone’s ass. He rules. Do I think he should have gotten more screen time? No. Also, he reminds me of Rocky. And yes, I did copy and paste this from my review of Touch.

Trigun – Vash the Stampede

Vash kicks ass. Just look at the picture. Do you notice any bullets in Vash? No, because you can’t hit him, he’s too nasty. Actualy, he gets wounded a lot, as you can tell from his body’s appearance in episode…….well in one of the episodes anyway. Vash is an ass kicker, and the way he goes about ass kicking is pretty ass kickerific. He doesn’t shoot to kill, but still wins every time (this is also the reason for his numerous scars). It’s hard for me to say exactly what is awesome about Vash. His peronality? His fighting skills? If you really want to know, what Trigun.

Tsukuyomi: MOON PHASE – Elfried

Honestly, there weren’t many characters to choose from, but I liked Elfried most, and I actully only have a vauge idea of why.

  1. Hazuki was annoying
  2. Kohei was boring
  3. The Grandfather was pretty cool, but Elfriede:
  • Has awesome appearance.
  • Has that demeanor like she secretly runs everything, and has control of everything.
  • Has awesome conversations with the grandfather

The reason in bold is the most prominant reason why I chose her. I loved it every time she talked, and her conversations with the grandfather were always amusing. It’s like she suddenly became older once she started banging him (they definitely banged).

Tsuyokiss – Sunao Konoe

This one is pretty simple. First I’ll say that I actually found this show to be very enjoyable. I liked it and it was pretty good the bee’s knees. As for the main character, I just like the fact that all she wants to do is create a drama club, and no one will let her, and she keeps trying and trying and trying. I love the determination. I also love the connection that she comes to realize she shares with Leo. This show kicked ass, and needs more credit now (how old is this show? 2006? 2006 was a great year for anime, there were so many good shows (Shana)).

The next part will conclude this epically long post. Hopefully I get back from yet another themed part tomorrow in time. THEMED PARTIES RULEEEEE!!!!

Best Characters of Every Show I’ve Seen – Part XVI: “S”

Back for more baby let’s do this. By the way, today I finally reached comment 2000. That’s pretty crappy considering this site is almost a year old. On to the good stuff.

Samurai 7 -Shimada Kambei

*This show was dropped at 23

In the actual live action/originally film done by Akira Kurosawa (which was absolutely brilliant), my favorite character was quite easily Kikuchiyo, but they turned him into a fucking stupid Robot in this one, which not only made me angry, but mad, flustered, perturbed, and angry as well (not to mention angry). Of course, the characters weren’t all that bad in this anime, but the immensely slow pacing and lack of any type of action/points of intrigue were a problem, and the main reason why I dropped the show (the whole robot adaptation thing also pissed me off a bit, and seemed kind of corny and stupid to me).

I’ll go ahead and say that Kambei is my favorite character, just because he looks like the man, and acts like the man, and thus, is the man. He’s also a nasty fighter.

Samurai Champloo – Mugen

Well let’s see, considering that Mugen is my header, I’d say that most people could tell beforehand who I was going to choose here. Mugen is the man. Mugen kicks ass. Mugen is voiced by Kazuya Nakai.

The End.

Wait: Mugen is fucking awesome, and one of the best characters ever, which can also be said for the series.

The End for real.

Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei (all seasons) -Matoi Tsunetsuki

Before I even begin this, I will say that the cast of SZS is the best that I have seen ever, besides Hayate and maybe FMA. I honestly could put almost any character in a top spot for almost any other show. but among the many awesome characters, My favorite would have to be Matoi Tsunetsuki, because, quite obviously, she’s a stalker, and stalkers rule (in anime). She stalks whoever she falls in love with, and she has fallen in love with Nozomu, and thusly always shows up at points where you least expect, because she’s literally always stalking Nozomu. It’s great. I give her the ASA (Anime Stalker Award) for her great performance at being a stalker.

Other Notables:

  • Chiri Kitsu – Crazy Bitch.
  • Abiru Kobushi – Bandage Girl who steals tails from animals.
  • Kiri Komori – Hikikomori girl, except instead of staying at home, she stays at school, wrapped in a blanket.

Never mind Notables. I would have to name every single character. God I love this show.

School Days – Kotonoha Katsura

Meet Kotonoha, a quiet girl for the most part. She is generally shy around people, and it takes a LOT for her to actually confess to the main character, Makoto. Eventually the two date, and couldn’t be happier. Then a few small things happen, and when it’s all said and done, she is carrying around Makoto’s head in a dufflebag, and even killed her rival for Makoto’s affections. What a dynamic character.

Sengoku Basara – Nobunaga Oda

I really, REALLY, shouldn’t have to explain this one, but I will anyway:

  1. Voiced by Norio Wakamoto.
  2. Drinks for a fucking SKULL.
  3. Kills EVERYTHING.
  4. Doesn’t give a SHIT (about killing whoever, whenever).
  5. Just fucking awesome.

I’m done!

Serial Experiments: Lain – Lain

In this, completely awesome show, which is one of the coolest shows I’ve seen, Lain is probably one of the most dynamic characters that I’ve seen. At the start of the series, Lain is nothing more than a shy 14-year-old girl, living a seemingly normal life, until she’s introduced to The Wired (kind of like the internet). From here, she…….well….I don’t want to ruin it in case no one’s seen this show (go watch it now), but Lain changes in several ways. personally, I loved this anime’s complexity and how it dealt with the definition of reality, along with the definition of one’s self (did I even get that right?).

I kinda want to re watch this now.

Shakugan no Shana – Shana

Well, not a big surprise here. Shana, besides being one of Rie Kugimiya’s most well-known characters, is actually one of the best tsundere characters…..ever. I’m sure by now most people know that I really really really really like Shakugan no Shana, and all of its characters are great, but Shana? Pffffffff. Fagetaboutttt it. First there’s the character design. Although it’s pretty much the norm for most Rie Kugimiya characters (short, no breasts), Shana is a Flame Haze, and is generally awesome when she decides to get serious. Here hair pretty much turns to fire, and she looks fucking awesome. Then of course there’s her.

As a character, Shana has a lot on her plate. Not only does she slice up the bad guys with an awesome SAMURAI SWORD, but she also deals with adapting to human interaction (or I guess Torch interaction at first). In the beginning, she seemed pretty apathetic when a person died or became a torch, but through interacting with Yuji, she begins to change, and develops feelings of love and friendship (honestly that’s not even a reason why I like her, I just like her because she looks cool, kicks ass, and is played by Rie Kugimiya).

The second season was pretty shitty, and Shana kind of got annoying (as did all of the characters) until they started fighting, where Shana suddenly became fucking awesome again, and whooped ass.

Shaman King – Anna Kyoyama

She is Yoh’s fiancée by arranged marriage, and is pretty much awesome, because she is such a bitch, but at the same time, you can tell that she has genuine feelings for Yoh. She is always the person who has to whip Yoh into shape and force him to get his ass in gear, and she also demands. See the picture above? That’s her general demeanor. She rarely smiles. Oh, and yes, she has powers.

I didn’t have much to say about her, but despite that, she’s actually one of my favorite characters (I’m not going to try and rank her, but out of all the characters on this list, she’d be in the better half of them.

Shikabane Hime – Hokuto

First and foremost, as you can tell, she’s a crazy bitch. Considering that she’s a Shikabane with no regrets, or feelings whatsoever, she treats everything like a kid seeing something for the first time. Except she’s a kid who likes to just kill everything. If you say, “Kill that person,” then she’ll start laughing, and kill that person, and not just kill them, but shred them to pieces. It’s a nice trait to have.

Point number two, look at her eyes. They’re inverted, which is like heterochromia to another level. AWESOME. Not to mention the white hair and the crazy red mark on the left of her face (her left). She’s just one more reason to like Shikabane Hime (which was good).

Simoun – Aer

Aer is the best. Neviril is the worst. That is how it goes with me. In case you didn’t read the picture title, Aer is the one on the left (your left). What makes this whore so special?

Well first of all, she’s a whore. Okay that’s not true, but as far as characters go, she was one character that was upbeat and fun, and helped make this anime become really good. She really went at Neviril (in a lesbian way, although not technically), and that’s something I can respect. not much more to say here, but I do want to touch on he show a little bit.

Simoun was a great show (even though I got a bit confused by the ending). But to say that it’s yuri? Meh. Not really. You see, in their world, all people are born as females, and then later choose to be males, or remain as females. So technically, nothing is really yuri from the stand point of the characters. Any relationships (or most anyway) that form between these girls usually would not be yuri, because one of the girls would more than likely eventually decide to become a man (gotta make babies). Of course, this show still managed to produce a set of lesbian incest girls, but that’ Japan for you.

I understand that that explanation sucked. But I sort of, kind of got out what I was trying to say.

Sora wo Kakeru Shoujo – Honoko Kawai

I’m beginning to think that all shows starting with the letter “S” are instantly awesome. I like almost every single show on this list so far, albeit the first one. Sora wo Kakeru Shoujo is no different. Great show, great cast, great greatness. I almost picked Jun Fukuyama’s character, which was almost like a robot version of Lelouch, albeit funnier (I need to stop saying “albeit”), but in the end, Honoka’s greatness could not be overcome. Reasons:

  • She’s got a fucking cool hat.
  • Telekinetic powers and glowing red eyes.
  • She’s a typical quite girl character.
  • She’s just, really, awesome.

Spice and Wolf – Horo

Anyone who’s seen Spice and Wolf knows that Horo makes the show. Her personality is so awesome, that without her, the show would suck. Fortunately, the show includes her, so it is actually really really good. Basically, Horo is a couple things.

Firstly, she loves to tease Lawrence. Sometimes she acts turned on by him, just to get a reaction out of him. Sometimes she asks odd questions, to make him embarrassed. However, despite her teasing, it’s pretty obvious that she has genuine feelings for Lawrence, and here she develops sort of a tsundere attitude (sort of). She’s not full tsundere, but she definitely displays characteristics of one.

Why else is she awesome? Well for one, she loves eating and getting shit faced on  regular basis. Does that really make her cool though? Yes. Yes it does.

Strike Witches – Mio Sakamoto

Strike Witches, despite being a bunch of lolis without pants, was actually a pretty good show, and I was able to tolerate the blatant fanservice because I kind of enjoyed the plot (zippin around in those boot things looked kinda fun). Anyway, Mio Sakamoto. Look at the picture (stare HARD) and you should find out one reason why I like her.

That’s right, a magical eye that is covered by an eye patch. What can I say, I dig the eye patch. They make any character look cool. Even Watanuki looks cooler when he has an eye patch (in fact, I’d say the episodes got better when he had an eye patch too….God I miss xxxHOLiC).

Besides this, she wields a samurai sword and has an attitude of a winner. She’s a born leader and has the ability to not take shit, or act like moe garbage, or realize that she’s in a fanservice anime, like most of the other girls in this show.

Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu – Yuki Nagato

Well, here is a character who for some reason I keep reverting back to when I see other characters like her. She’s a typical quiet character, but she certainly isn’t the first. However, she is probably one of the most popular.

First of all, I would like to say that anyone who thinks that Mikuru is the best character can either suck my dick, jump off a cliff, or punch themselves in the privates until they become numb. Mikuru sucks. She’s just fucking annoying in so many ways. She cries and gets embarrassed all the time. She’s honestly just a pain. Where was she on my top 5 most hated characters post, is what I want to know.

Anyway, back to Yuki. She’s an alien, which is awesome. She’s all business, and rarely talks, which is awesome, and she’s generally awesome, which is awesome. I mean, she had to go through the endless eight around 15 thousand times. We only had to endure it for 9 or so episodes. I might have to consider her a bad ass now (she does do some bad ass stuff).

Well with that I have finished “S”. I’m probably going to do two more of these posts (maybe three). Almost at the end baby!
