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 and bratty Kayo. Jiro is a likeable and engaging protagonist. Naoko is the film's biggest scene stealer, because of...

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...

My favorite anime show is a show that's not well known. Even most anime fans haven't watched the show. The show is Tamayura.

Tamayura is has 4 main characters, but the show is about Fuu. Fuu is a teenage girl who lost her dad years ago. She moves back to her dad's city where she meets up with her friend Kaoru. Fuu and Karou become close friends with Maon and Norie. Fuu's friends help Fuu's self doubts about life. Fuu's dad was a photographer. Fuu becomes a photographer too as she learns to honor her dad's legacy and live her own life. She ends up becoming a beloved icon of the city like her dad.

Tamayura is the most inspiring show that I've ever seen. The show is fantastic reminder that things in life will be okay as long as you have love and determination in your heart.

Tamayura manages to be a show that has only girl main characters. The guy characters are supporting characters. Fuu and her friends are good main characters. Fuu has the best storylines and enjoyably silly personality, Karou is a good voice of reason, Maon is the mysterious and silent character, and Norie is the amusingly immature character. The show managed to get...

Tokyo Ghoul is about this young fellow named Kaneki Ken, a regular boy 19 years old, he had a mate/friend name Hide, that's what he called him anyways, Kaneki is the main character of the anime, he was a human boy until he went on a date with Rize Kamishiro, a known ghoul who died in the first episode of season 1, Rize was a ghoul who ate humans for meals of course, the ghouls in the anime were just like vampires, just after more things from humans, now, Kaneki Ken is a one eyed ghoul, reason for that is because he got Rize's organs transplanted in him, he was close to death, still surprised how he didn't die, anyways, Rize's organs were in him, ghoul organs, since he was a human, the race between the both confined into a one eyed ghoul, as for Rize, she stayed with Kaneki though his mind, etc, as for Hide, Hide had no idea about this, anyways, later on Kaneki met Touka Kirishima, a ghoul, a speed ghoul, she had helped Kaneki for a bit, now, who else, ah, Kaneki met Tsukiyama, a ghoul who eats his own kind sometimes, around episode 5 or 8 he wanted to devour Kaneki before he learnt he was a one eyed ghoul, but, he tried anyways again! but wanted Kaneki to feast off Kimi Nishino,...

As I've said before I think there are 3 definitions to the word underrated. Today I will be talking about gems but this will be a three-part since the anime all have different tones and purposes.

Definition 3: no one has heard of it but you, making it a hidden gem that unfortunately leaves its future survival to small groups of dedicated advocates but more likely than not will be forgotten with the sands of time.

Of course this is slightly exaggerated since I'm sure most of you will be able to point out one or two you recognize or even watched or not even have a same definition of Mature as me. The type of anime on this will be mature in content or themes but I'm also including art style or subdued color palettes so if you like bright colors and fun dere tropes these shows won't be up your alley.


Bokurano

This series centers around a group of kids who find themselves piloting a Mecha to save the world from invaders, dream come true right? WRONG! To pilot the said Mecha each child will immediately die after piloting it, causing them to panic, come to terms with their fate and look at their lives to find...

Something I saw on another one of the clubs I'm a fan of and decided it'd be fun to do an anime version.

1. Name I'd like....

For some reason I really like this old man's name in Code Geass.



Taizo Kirihara (Code geass)

2. Place I'd want....

Is it just me or is the place Nunnally and Lelouch live really roomy and clean and has the DOOR!! of the future.....



The Ashford building

3.Character I'd want as a best friend....

This cutie right here! I just really admire her! She's true to herself and someone you can talk to.



Makita (Ao Haru Ride)


4.Characters I'd want to have as parents....

Pretty sure Hana would go to the ends of the earth for me and I for her. (and mebbe the Dad is nice too.

Not the list of the most popular or most technically sound but my personal and very biased list of anime that I loved watching and will continue to enjoy watching for years to come. That's right the very definition of favorite. Sadly this means I can't name them all (BUT I STILL LOVE YOU MY ANIME) and of course there is the very real possibility of me watching an anime that knock the others down a notch but here, as of this moment, are my top 20 so I hope you enjoy!

{Number 20} K project

I would like to start this list by saying I enjoy shows with powers.... because I do. K project has an especially interesting power system. 7 kings give their power to clan members and are powerful themselves but when the kings overuse their own power a sword falls and kills them. OHMYGOOMIES guys the story of Damocles was inspiration for the power system and it made me love this concept already. With a little mystery, action, gorgeous looking art and animation and I was sold. I have so much fun with this series and it's characters who are dorks.

I know this fan-art sucks but it's the only one I could find that features both of them.
Well,this has been a long time coming.
Due to how much people liked my "Similarities between Frozen and Steven Universe" article,I decided to make similar one to it.But this time,I'll list off the similarities between two of my favorite series of all time,Samurai Jack and Berserk.
Now before we get into the article itself,let's get some things out of the way.
You see,when I was a little boy,Samurai Jack was my favorite show growing up and now that I'm older,I honestly think it got better with time and right now it's my second favorite cartoon of all time.

I got introduced to Berserk when I heard the song "Forces", which was part of the Berserk OST.After that,I became really interested in the series.And when I finally watched the anime,the movies and even some of the manga,I became a huge fan of the series.I even like the new 2016 anime!

And I know that some of you anime fans out there will say that Samurai Jack has more in common with Afro Samurai than it does with Berserk.While that is true,the reason why I'm comparing Samurai Jack to Berserk instead of Afro Samurai it's because the comparison between the 2 samurai shows...

So cute!
Hi guys, since I had written about Sakura Wars. I'm going to write another anime from my childhood and that is Akazukin Cha Cha.

The Characters

Like many anime cartoons that I come across, the characters really come to life and provides comic relief as the story progresses. Their interactions are so cute and yet at the same time, unpredictable.

The Story-Line

When I first watched this anime, I thought that it would going to predictable. But I was wrong in the end, the story is about parental love and friendship. Along the way, it changes a young girl's life as she found out that she is actually a princess!

Happily Ever After

Although this article is short, while writing it brings back memories of this wonderful anime, the characters and the music. Check it out!

This is one of the anime I have watched and love for a year now. It is Mondaiji-Tachi Ga Isekai Kara Kuru Sou Desu Yo?

What's good with it? Others may think that Izayoi Sakamaki, the mc, is too overpowered. He actually got beaten by (SPOILERS) Faceless in the LN, as far as I remembered. That means, he is not that overpowered. I think? Well, that is my opinion.

If you love animes who has SUPERNATURAL as their genre, then watch this. WARNING: It only has ten episodes.

I've warned you.

So also, it has a little (not really LITTLE .-.) ecchi in it, and has a little comedy too.

We’ve known that Bleach manga is in its final arc, it seems as though the time has come as Bleach 685 will be the final Bleach manga chapter! Weekly Shonen Jump 35 seems to have posted the ending notice in Bleach 684 as a colour page and climax will be featured in Bleach 685.

The Ending notice:

ブリーチ巻末予告
記念の15周年(イチゴイヤー)突破&伝説超最高潮(クライマックス)Cカラー
時は今!!すべての物語はいまこの瞬間に…!!

Translates to: Colour Page and Special 15th Anniversary Super Legendary Climax.

This message appears in Bleach 684 which leads to Bleach 685 being the end of Bleach manga. The message also points to Nisekoi manga also ending in the next issue with an extended 25 page chapter.

YonkouProductions, person who is confirming this, also mentions that in Japanese, the term “climax” is synonymous to finale. Plus the fact that a colour page and legendary ending is being mentioned points and confirms the end of Bleach with chapter 685. They also mention that there is a “chance” for an epilogue spinoff, but nothing is...

Hello Sakura.
Hi guys, since anime has play a minor role in my childhood. I would to write about an underrated anime called Sakura Wars as my favourite anime and sadly I only watched Season 1.

The Story-Line

Unlike many anime that I come across, the story line of Season 1 is very intrigued and interesting. The characters, especially Sakura and Sumire improve their relationship throughout the story.
There are 2 things that I learnt about Season 1, they're diversity and teamwork!

The Characters

We also get a feedback of the characters themselves, and as previously mentioned. Sakura and Sumire became friends during the second half of Season 1. In which I am very happy about it!
The characters are also international and we don't get the stereotype of the team as an all Japanese members in it, in other words: diversity. That's what the show is all about!

A New Dawn

I haven't seen Season 2 yet, but I hope so sometimes soon and enjoy watching the show. Tell me all about Season 2 if you have seen it!

Hey Anime club, man it's been a while. I'm mostly blaming that on myself, but I digress. XD

Heyo! So this is my first opinion piece aside from my top 10 list, but I felt like Tiger and Bunny needed some love. That being said, everything in this article is strictly my opinion. You don't have to agree with everything or really anything I say. I'm always up for debating and if you have things to add I'd love to hear them!

Also, just as a heads up: I'll be using singular they/them pronouns for Nathan and she/her for Pao-Lin. They use he/him for Nathan in the show, but I just feel better using they/them.

I'll be going pretty in-depth on the show, and even though I'll say when I'm talking about spoilers, I'm just going to stick on of these on here:
SPOILER ALERT!!
If you haven't seen Tiger and Bunny yet, you should absolutely go watch it. It's a ton of fun with a great plot and a completely **~amazing~** movie. Now, onto the reasons why I think Tiger and Bunny is one of the greatest anime ever!

Konata Izumi!
Lucky star is one of those anime's that fit in the school category as the characters are Konata Izumi, Kagami Hiiragi, Tsukasa Hiiragi and Miyuki Takara, these characters are the main characters but mostly Konata Izumi is the main character in my opinion, these girls go through high school as friends sadly Kagami was in separate classes then her friends but this was the best anime I ever seen so far anyways Konata was the anime freak out of the friends she loved cosplaying and manga also playing dating sims, Miyuki is the calm one out of everyone she wears glasses due to she hates anything to close to her eyes like contacts or water, Kagami is well a girl that is mostly serious and of course does her homework (( I never do mine half of the time :P )) anyways last but not least Tsukasa she is the twin sister of Kagami she is like Konata cause she copies off her sisters homework and she falls asleep when ever studying anyways this is my review I recommend to see it.

It's announced there's gonna be a live action move.

My reaction was....I KNEW IT!!!!

Ever since I read the manga I fell in love with the series and I couldn't wait any longer to read the next one then the next one then the next one.

Then came the anime...absolutely loved Season 1 but season 2 I was a bit upset how rushed it was....but I hope Season 3 will be just as good as the manga (Tokyo Ghoul:re)

Now the movie...some fans are being negative and some fans are positive about it, but if Tokyo Ghoul is officially coming to the big screen I just hope it will be good

Dear MyAnimeList users,

Recently one of my reviews had to be deleted because a certain online spell checker *cough*PaperRater*cough* confused texts, and instead, I copied and pasted my Diabolik Lover, More Blood review. Thankfully though I found a way to get back that “deleted” review without having to save it in any document, and that’s what I want to share with you today; How to get your old review back up on MyAnimeList. The first thing you need to do is type your MyAnimeList username with a colon in front into google. Then, you'll just type a part of your review in, and you're pretty much done.


Now that we know how to get it started I want to bring up some obstacles that may occur while trying to retrieve your review. The first thing that'll be an obstacle is trying to remember what you wrote. So here's what I suggest doing first you want to type in every sentence you remember. Then eventually you'll remember most of what you wrote(There's also rare occasions in where some sentences will show up without you even remembering them). Another obstacle that might get in your way would be finding out if you have the...

While I was pleasantly surprised that on fanpop there is some tidbits of Nora love it's kinda obvious that in general she isn't the most popular character in the Noragami franchise (up there with Kuguha and Yato's dear old daddy). This is most definitely due to her rather cruel approach to both Hiyori and Yukine. And yet she happens to be one of my favorite characters in the series and I thought I'd clarify what fascinates me about this lovely lady.

{To note} based mostly on the anime, I have read the manga but am not terribly more advanced than the anime progression (like 1 book at most)

What matters more to ME in anime, more than the animation, the originality of the plot, or even pacing if we're being extreme , is actually characters and their relationships with each other. I feel like seeing people interact with each other says a lot more than merely having the character describe themselves which helps make Nora one of the most interesting characters. We never see her by herself, all aspects we know about her is through how she works off of other people.

So in this list I'll be giving my favorite romances where they try to focus as much as they can on the actual connection between two people over everything else they probably have going on in the anime To further clarify I do need to say that these are my FAVORITES not the "best" overall, and I am mostly judging on how the actual romance aspect appealed to me.

and I'm also including some anime suggestions with each anime in case you already watched it or are just anime-hunting at the moment


{Number 12} Kimi Ni Todoke



There's a charm to how innocent this anime is. It has a simple style and slow pace to show you a romance between a shy girl and a popular boy without any drama relying on mean spirited gimmicks or crude jokes. The romance itself has a way of taking baby steps towards how close the mains get since it takes 2 seasons for them to finally be together and be happy. But I like that about this show. The small steps are so cute as they get to know each other The pace is slow so if you like quicker tight written shows I can't recommend it but if you want something...

Well, here we go again. Sorry for the complete lack of an actual real review for quite some time. I was busy with school, work, family, and a bunch of things you don’t care about, because you only came for a review. Well, a review is what you are going to get. So, let me introduce you to D-Frag. It’s pretty underrated, so why don’t I review this? I've got nothing better to review.
So, D-Frag is an anime by Studio Brain’s Base, who have worked on Princess Jellyfish, Durarara, and my personal favorite, Baccano. The series was also licensed by Madman Entertainment, who have worked on Dragon Ball Z, Akira, and all the Studio Ghibli films. D-Frag is also licensed by Funimation, and what the hell hasn’t Funimation worked on? Anyway, D-Frag is a comedy anime that follows a bad boy named Kenji Kazama, who is dragged into being a part of the Game Creation Club to help them create games, and let me tell you, crazy stuff happens. Other characters include Roka Shibasaki, a moa girl and president of the Game Creation Club, who is said to be the strongest in the school. Then there’s Chitose Karasuyama, the president of the student council who uses her authority to put fear in...

I put a lot of thought into this list!
The word underrated when referring to anime is in the same boat as a lot of words (overrated, likable, beautiful, bad, good), it all depends on the beholder and personally I think there are three ways you can take the word underrated

1}Lots of people heard about it, lots of people watched it but not many of those people gave it the credit it was due or nobody really sits down and talks about how great it was, even if it's "mainstream" because the majority thought it was a good anime

2}lots of people have at least heard of it but few have actually sat down and enjoyed what a good show it is due to having an infinite to watch list

3} No one has heard of it but you, making it a hidden gem that unfortunately leaves its future survival to small groups of dedicated advocates but more likely than not will be forgotten with the sands of time.

So if you can take a guess I will be talking about definition number 2, those anime that more likely than not you have heard about, being actually recommended to you or recognized by the community as good anime, I'm also going to be just a touch more selective with my choices by naming some...
