The Wind Rises is my favorite anime film. The film has several good qualities including the characters. The film has no bad characters. The film is full of good characters.

10. Kinu

Kinu is a noteworthy character due to accidentally helping Naoko realize how nice Jiro is. Kinu is barley in the film, but she's essential to what eventually happens in the film.

9. Mr. Kurokawa

Mr. Kurokawa is 1 of Jiro and Honjo's bosses. He's a unhappy guy who's really serious. Despite how serious he acts he's pretty funny. Plus he's well voiced by Martin Short.

8. Mrs. Kurokawa

Mrs. Kurokawa is Mr. Kurokawa's sweet wife. She's a kind person who is willing to help people in need.

7. Mr. Castorp

Mr. Castorp is a mysterious German that Jiro met. He was a interesting and amusing character. Special mention goes to the paper airplane scene where he watches Jiro and Naoko play around while looking amused.

Pokemon is a popular anime show. The show has various films. This review is about the original Pokemon film. The film is a classic to Pokemon fans, but was hated by critics.

The Plot:

Special mention goes to the 10 minutes that got edited out of most versions of this film. The scenes that got cut out involve Dr. Fuji's dark plot. He was trying to bring his deceased daughter Amber back to life. Amber eventually got cloned and became Mewtwo's best friend, but she died. These scenes are some of the most well made scenes of all time. It's weird that 2 characters that barley have screen time (Dr. Fuji and Amber) have a far better plot than any of the heroes of Pokemon. This film is the only film that got me to cry. Watching Dr. Fuji's marriage fail was tear worthy, but Amber's death is the saddest I've ever been at anything fictional. Overall these scenes are sad, but are fantastic.

After that the film has some good scenes including Mewtwo betraying Dr. Fuji and briefly working for Giovanni. However the film stops being good when the main plot comes. The plot is Ash trying to stop Mewtwo from getting rid of humans and Pokemon. It's...

This is a japanese romantic comedy shōjo manga series written and illustrated by Junko and published by Kodansha in 2013. The anime belongs to the genre of romantic comedy, reverse harem & Shoujo.
The story is about a high school Otaku girl who is totally obsessed with Anime, Manga, Cosplay etc & loves Yaoi romance. But one day accidentally she becomes beautiful and so the atmosphere around her changes as the school boys starts to date with her. She was at first scared that if she can become an otome from otaku but as the series progress the protagonist also made progress. The anime has so many good looking boys so if you're an OTAKU (Fangirl)you won't be disappointed.
The story is average and the animation is good but the comedy is awesome. You'll get stomach ache due to laughing. If you're looking for school romance with comedy I suggest you to watch it. I love the comedy of this anime so much.
Story- 7/10
Art- 9/10
Comedy- 10/10

Hai and welcome to mai new article the top ten anime 2!!! I hope u like it and plz comment after u read!!

1. Fairy Tail

Ok lets just say that I absolutely love this anime. It has so many wonderful moments and characters. Its mainly Fantasy so if ur more of a Slice of Life person or Horror, I wouldn't recommend this show.
On the scale of Fan service I say this show is pretty mild. Although they have some dirty jokes..


2. Puella Magi Madoka Magica

Now this is a Dark Magical girl anime. When I first went to look at it I thought I was just going to turn out as a new Sailor Moon, but boy was I wrong. PMMM is a AMAZING show that I woud recommend to anyone for both genders can enjoy it. It has little to no fanservice and barely any cursing.

3. Alice in the Country of Hearts
OMG OMG OMG!!!!!! ok so this is a REALLY girly anime about The basic Alice story but with a twist: All the main magical characters (besides the queen of hearts) are HOT teenage boys. I would say this anime has basic fanservice (but no flat out sex) and they do use guns and swords regularly... But this is a very good...

The Tale of the Princess Kaguya is a 2013 Studio Ghibli film. The film was directed by Isao Takahata. The film is based on the story "The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter".

The Plot:

The film is focused on a princess who is adopted by a couple who live in the country. The princess loves her life in the country, but the dad thinks that she should have a life of royalty. The princess moves to a mansion where she is treated like royalty, but she misses her pleasant country life. Plus a bunch of shallow guys want to marry her.

The plot is amazing. The film is over 2 hours, but the film manages to be a wonderful experience. I would talk about the plot details, but that would spoil this masterpiece.

The Characters:

The best character is Princess Kaguya, the star of the film. I love her personality so much. She values the close friendship of the country people more than the fanciness of royalty. She is brave to do what she thinks is right and always manages to be a lovable character. I love the scene where she points out how shallow the royals are by pointing out how they want to marry her despite just...

Yona of the Dawn (暁のヨナ: Akatsuki no Yona) is an Action,Fantasy, Romantic series. It is based on a ongoing Japanese manga series having same name and to be mentioned that the manga is published by the famous Hana to Yume comics.

The story follows a girl named Yona, who lived a life of a princess and received anything she desires but her life took a fatal turn when on her 16th birthday his cousin who is also Yona's love interest killed her father. This incident brought a huge change in Yona's life as she escaped from the castle with the help of his childhood friend Hak. As the series progress Yona saw the true nature of her kingdom which his father ruled and went to look for the 4 ancient dragon warrior to lend their strength in order to gain power of her kingdom and castle.

Unlike any Shōjo manga based anime series this series is different.The female character is so strong and becomes stronger as the series progresses. The animation is awesome so is the story-plot. It may not be that much popular but trust me it's very good anime series. As it is a Reverse Harem most of the male characters are attracted to the female protagonist. The story...

Code Geass has various characters of both genders. Since I did a list of my top 5 favorite Code Geass guys it's time for the list of my top 5 favorite Code Geass guys.

5. Prince Schneizel

Schneizel is 1 of the villains of the show. He was a charming, but menacing person. He was a clever and cool villain. 1 of the most dangerous characters of the show.

4. Kaname

Kaname Ohgi had a major role in Zero's gang. Although various people dislike Kaname I thought he was a interesting and cool character. I really like his storyline with Villetta.

3. Suzaku

Suzaku is 1 of the show's main characters. He was a well meaning and optimistic person. Despite being Lelouch's best friend they didn't get along too well. He is 1 of the most interesting and coolest characters of the show.

2. Lelouch (Zero)

Lelouch is the star of the show. What's really interesting about Lelouch is that he's both heroic and antagonistic. His goals are admirable, but to make his goals happen he does some bad stuff. He's a interesting and cool character.

My least favorite anime show is the 1990s' Sailor Moon. Please keep in mind that the following review is my personal opinions.

The Plot:

The main plot of Sailor Moon is really confusing, because I'm not so sure what the main plot is. The show started off about Sailor Moon fighting Queen Beryl's helpers by herself. Later on 4 girls joined Sailor Moon so the show seemed to be about the 5 girls vs. Queen Beryl. However in season 2 Queen Beryl got replaced with different villains and Mini Moon joined the group of heroes. The show seemed like it was going to be about Sailor Moon and her family (Tuxedo Mask and Mini Moon), but Mini Moon left after season 2 and after that Mini Moon returned! And more sailor girls showed up in season 3! The show keeps adding heroes and replacing villains to the point that I don't understand what the show's about. Also the tone of the show keeps changing from a goofy comedy to a dramatic comedy show. Some episodes are so silly that the show feels like a comedy, but some episodes are so serious that the show feels like a drama.

Hello everyone!! Once again I humbly send my thanks to all those who're going to read this list. Since I'm truly attracted to physical as well as characteristically beautiful male characters thus I mainly watch those animes where at least a single handsome guy is present. You know just like those "Kyaa-fangirl" all though I don't particularly scream saying "Kyaa"!! XD!!
So here is my list, hope you'll like it and please comment. I'll be looking forward to your comments~

♥ TAKUMI USUI from Maid-sama~
My list starts with most voted sexiest anime guy in 2010. He is the most handsome anime guy I’ve ever seen. Well to be frank not that much handsome actually he’s sweet, perverted and totally perfect boyfriend material. He is the idol boyfriend of any girl and I can guarantee about it maybe that’s why I kind of jealous to Misaki!! He is perfect in everything he does, practically everything. To be mentioned that actually this kind of guy never exists in real world but I really love and adore him.Well to be mentioned I love his chibi form most.

There are several film studios, but my favorite is Studio Ghibli. Studio Ghibli is a film studio that's made some of the most beloved anime films. They have around 20 films. Their 2 main directors are Hayo Miyazaki and Isao Takahata.

Studio Ghibli films are the king of having good plots. The 3 most impressively written films that I've ever experienced are all Studio Ghibli films. The plots in their films have very emotionally moving and wonderfully done scenes. The characters are often likeable and relatable. Plus the animation is awesome and the music is charming.

The Studio Ghibli films that I like are the realistic films that are dramatic. Usually I dislike serious films and films that critics consider to be "a masterpiece". I'm a film fan to have fun and serious films aren't what I usually want, but Studio Ghibli is wonderful at films that are good to watch. Instead of feeling depressed at their serious films I feel impressed.

When Marnie Was There is a 2014 Studio Ghibli film.

The Plot:

The film is about Anna, a socially uncomfortable young girl. She lives with nice, but suspicious foster parents. Due to some problems she spends some time with her uncle and aunt. While there she becomes best friends with Marnie, a mysterious girl.

The film's plot is really good. Although the storyline is quite dark the passionate bond between Anna and Marnie leads to some of the most emotionally impactful and heartwarming scenes ever. The film is pretty much just focused on Anna and Marnie so the film isn't overloaded with too many plots and characters.

The Characters:

I relate very much to both Anna and Marnie. I relate to Anna's social issues and over worrying. I relate to Marnie's dedication to being optimistic. The 2 girls are a good duo who are heartwarming and cute together. My favorite scenes are when they are sharing screen time together. There's a supporting character named Sayaka who is a helpful and interesting character. Anna's uncle, Mr. Oiwa, provides good relief.

Warning, this article will have spoilers for the manga of Ao No Exorcist/Blue Exorcist. If you have not read the most recently released chapters in the manga and want to avoid spoilers, I suggest you don't read this article.



Okay, so now, Lewin Light is a very odd and mysterious character. We know where he's from and why he became an exorcist, but we still don't know his backstory, now, do we?
But, after examining the most recent chapters, I noticed a few things, and sorta tied them together.

At one point, Lewin himself states that he's not like normal people. He told Suguro that ever since he was a kid, he hasn't really felt emotions like normal people do and has trouble feeling anything emotionally. This is our first piece in the theory.
Now, in the most recent chapter, chapter 86, Lewin and Suguro were searching through an old cloning lab that was abandoned during the Blue Night, but Mephisto kept in tact.

Notes: This light parody story is based on the film, The Wind Rises. The characters are from Johnny Depp's Alice in Wonderland films. Special thanks to the people that created and own The Wind Rises and Alice in Wonderland.

Tarrant Hightopp (the Hatter) loved hats. He lived in Underland. He had a clown face. He wanted to become a hat designer. He said "I want to become a good hatter like my dad." 1 night he stared at the sky, imagining a sky full of hats. He suddenly had a dream where he was in a hat filled area.

Zanik Hightopp said "Tarrant what are you doing in my dream?"

Tarrant said "This is my dream too."

Zanik said "So you want to design hats too?"

Tarrant said "Yes please."

Zanik said "Remember that hats aren't for war or for money. Hats are a beautiful dream. Hatters bring dreams to life."

Tarrant said "So I can be a hatter?"

Zanik said "Of course you can."

I'm hyped for season 2 of AOT! I've already read the manga but I'm excited to see season 2. And my favorite character is Levi by the way cause he is so cool. And off topic but why are there so many pictures of Levi and eren kissing? It's very weird. Plus I think attack on titan is the best anime ever. Plus sword art online as a game sucks and here's why. No.1 as a mmorpg it sucks because mmos don't have clear goals of trying to complete the game. No.2 how come after heath cliff kills Asuna she's still alive. It doesn't make any sense.

Hello everyone! at first I would like to wish everyone Merry Christmas and thanks all those who are going to read my this ridiculous list of mysterious relationships.
It's been 7 months since I've started to watch anime and after watching 22 anime series I found some mysterious relationships between two characters in various animes. I don't know if you all feel the same way about them but still lets figure it out okay? XD!!
So here is my list~

•Undertaker & Claudia Phantomhive from Kuroshitsuji~
To me it's most mysterious relation I've ever found in the anime. Also in manga it never explains that why Undertaker called the locket marked Claudia P. as his "Treasure" neither it's revealed that what is the connection between Undertaker and Phantomhives.
It's so mysterious. I've searched google many times to get a proper explanation of it but got none. So if anyone finds out any particular information about them please let me know I am so curious about them.

Top 10 Anime Babes

Before giving anime a chance I used to think it was impossible to find an attractive anime guy . While I still think most anime guys are rather plain, there are some exceptions that are total babes! There's also more varieties of styles than I thought. I'll apologize in advance for my weird comments haha.


10. Guts (Berserk)

Guts is without a doubt one of the most masculine (and bad ass) characters I've ever seen. He's really tall, has a great jawline,huge thighs, and a hot voice to go with all that manliness. Not to mention that I love me some thick guys with impressive shoulder to waist ratios. The adaption he looks the hottest in is the Golden Age Arc movies! I think he's handsome in the other adaptions too though. Even though he looks kinda scary, he's considered a very handsome man. When he isn't being scary, his face is really beautiful and he actually has a warm smile. He also proves that men can have full lips and still be masculine. It's a shame those stupid demons ruined his arm and pierced one of his eyes. He's a bit too rugged for me, but he's still hot.

Disclaimer:
I don’t own any of the following characters and also both anime and manga “Kamisama Kiss”. I inspired this fanfiction from episode 6 of Kamisama Kiss anime.



She is in a forest. A dark forest where not a single sound could be heard. There is not a single life form in that forest. It is just like another world. A dark world.
“Where am I?” She asked herself looking around. She was lying on ground of the forest. All she sees are burned trees. She stands up and started to run. Running towards the way from where she could hear the screams of females and children. “Wait up. I am coming” She shouted towards those helpless children. She’s running. She is trying hard to go to them as soon as possible. At last she arrived at the village. “What’s this place?” She is thinking to herself. She is standing in awe, standing among lots of people. Dead people. Bleeding bodies. “No” She whispers looking around the burning huts. They are burning in fire. “Blue fire” She whispers again, panting hard she couldn’t stand any longer. She dropped on her knees on the ground. She is panting hard not...

Hello I'm back with a revised version of my favorite anime tunes. As anime fans we all can agree on that the openings are very important to a anime.

It was a tough question to answer, and even tougher compiling my favorites in a Top 10, but I manged. I hope you enjoy the list because I spent a lot of time and pored much energy into creating this.

After the celebration had calmed, only Miku and Haku remained conscious enough to actually do anything. Kaito was being dogpiled but didn't seem to mind too much as he was out cold, on top of him laid Len, sprawling his limbs this way and that, opposite Len was Rin who simply had her head resting on Kaito's shoulder, she'd stolen his scarf for warmth.

"So, Haku-san," Miku spoke softly as not to disturb the pile of sleeping Humans just off to the side. "How did your friend come up with all of this amazing technology?"

Haku paused and sighed "He was a true Genius, he developed two vocal programs for English and two for Japanese. Since they're language compatible I was able to replicate them and redesign some things." She looked out the window "He created four human-like robots, two Androids and Two Gynoids, The first two were english-based when it came to speech and the other two were Japanse, these we're the first Vocaloids. They are actually just downstairs, they we're the basis of development for Project VOCALOIDS. Their voices are the ones who gave life. The English two we're known as Leon and Lola. The Japanese pair were called Meiko and Kaito."

Kira. In the anime community, that word is most associated with killers, and are shown to be so with that name alone. However, only two of the most deadly antagonists in anime have taken this name (As far as I know). Those two are Light Yagami AKA Kira from the thriller anime Death Note, and Yoshikage Kira from the recently released action anime, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable. However, which of these Kira’s is the better Kira? Which one could defeat the other. Well, before we discuss that, let’s talk about the two for a moment, and see their abilities. Also, this list will contain spoilers for both series, so you have been warned.





Light Yagami starts the series off as a young high school student. At this moment, he doesn’t have anything other than his intelligence and his hatred for criminals. However, that all changes once he gets his hands on the Death Note, a notebook that allows him to kill whoever’s name is written down on the notebook. Light uses the Death Note to achieve his goal of murdering criminals, and by doing so, he wishes to become a god and rule over the world as such,...

Judging by my username it's easy to assume that my favorite film is The Wind Rises which is correct. In my opinion The Wind Rises is the greatest film of all time. I noticed that it's not as popular as some Studio Ghibli films including Spirited Away. This review is a explanation of why I think every fan of film should see The Wind Rises.

The Plot: The Wind Rises has 2 major story lines. 1 storyline is about protagonist Jiro Horikoshi who was a real guy. Jiro is a person who loves airplanes and becomes a airplane designer. He and his best friend Honjo are working on planes during a time where airplanes were used for war. The other storyline is about Jiro's romance with a painter called Naoko Satomi. The wind literally helps get Jiro and Naoko together, but Naoko has a secret that could ruin her life. Both story lines are good, but Naoko's storyline is my favorite. Explaining why would give away spoilers to how amazing Naoko's storyline is.

The Characters: The film is full of quality characters not counting the harsh Mr. Kurokawa. Jiro is a likeable and engaging protagonist. Naoko is the film's biggest scene stealer, because of her lovely personality...

神様はじめました (Kamisama Hajimemashita) is the name of the English dubbed Anime name Kamisama Kiss. Its an Anime which was adopted from a manga by same name and written by Julietta Suzuki. Its a Romantic Comedy, Fantasy, Supernatural and shoujo Anime series.

If you're really looking for something romantic and with a handsome male character you should watch it. The animation is good and so is the story.
The story is about a high school home-less girl who suddenly becomes "The god of land" and got a handsome familiar. She apparently fell in love with his familiar but her familiar shows no human emotion to her but as the series progresses he also fell in love with her. You may see the devotion and loyalty of the familiar towards his mistress from the beginning of the story and as long as I remember this is the only anime series where I've seen the male and the female protagonist kisses each other in the debut episode.

Personally I like this anime very much. It has romance action comedy and handsome characters. The story plot is amazing. The series doesn't only revolves around the romance between those two. From the beginning you...
