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

So I'm going to be starting a collaboration article on here, and here's how it's going to work. I want everyone reading this to PM me their favorite anime character with evidence and reasoning, and after about three days I'll put all the PM's together into an article.

The article, as implied just now, will show the general Fanpop consensus's opinion when it comes to the best anime characters, and I hope to get at least.....let's say six entries?

Sorry for the shortness of this one, send me your PM's now if you want to join. And as always, have a good one! ^_^

Rules

-PM's must be titled "Why ____ Is My Favorite Anime Character"
-PM's must be at least a little detailed and contain some evidence as to why they're your favorite
-The deadline is July 25th

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...

look at the bae
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...

You know, whenever you think of a good action manga involving a lot of fight scenes, you probably think of manga like Dragon Ball Z, Naruto, or One Piece. But not me, good sir. Oh no, I prefer to read a more civilised manga. Like Jojo…. Wait, that’s probably equally as stupid if not more, isn’t it.
Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure is a manga series, spanning from 1986 to today, having 8 different volumes. Part 1, Phantom Blood, follows the gentleman Jonathan Joestar who goes to defeat the vampire Dio. Part 2, Battle Tendency, has Jonathan’s grandson, Joseph Joestar, battle against the ancient vampires, The Pillar Men. Part 3, Stardust Crusaders, follows the grandson of Joseph, Jotaro Kujo, as he travels to Egypt with his companions to save his mother. Part 4 follows Joseph’s illegitimate child, Josuke Higashikata, as he tries to protect the town of Morioh from a crazed killer and other people given Stands by a bow and arrow. Part 5, Vento Aureo, follows Giorno Giovanna, the son of Dio, as he tries to fight off the mafia in order to become a “gang-star”. Part 6, Stone Ocean, follows the daughter of Jotaro, Jolyne Cujoh, who is sent to prison, and must retrieve her...

"Eh?" the silverhaired woman turned and looked at them with a piercing glare "Whaddya Want you lil' Brats?! Can't ya see I'm Drinkin' here?!"

Rin sighed deeply and walked in "Please excuse the intrusion Haku-san, but our friend here is in a very specific predicament. We need a Autonomous Lip-Sync Operator and the Influx Detection System."

Haku's eyes widened when she mentioned these two strangely named items "Why do you need the MMD?! Did something happen?! Did you break yours?!"

Len cut in and spoke softly "N-No! We didn't break our Voices! We just need a favor for our friend, she was in an accident and can't physically sing any more but apparently she was proud of her terrible singing from before... So Please!" He begged her on his knees

Haku turned away "Ugh!! How are you so damn adorable when you're just a kid!?" She sighed and went over to a shrine of a picture of a Young man and Woman together. "Mother, father, We need your blessings once again, for a young girl who dreamt of singing. Just like I did... Help her... Please..." She prayed and pulled on a large Candle-Lever and the Shrine turned into the wall...

When I was a young middle school student, I told my friends, and I quote, “If Capcom doesn’t make an anime based off of the Ace Attorney series, I’m gonna fly to Japan and slap them”! True quote. And finally, after over a decade of Phoenix Wright, we have finally gotten the Ace Attorney anime! Episode 1……. So, after watching the Ace Attorney movie and liking it, does the Ace Attorney anime lives up to the hype or should be deported back to Japan? Let’s find out, shall we?
So, let us start with the anime’s opening. I think it’s catchy, though is it just me, or does it sound a bit like the ending theme from the anime Free? Seriously, play these songs back to back and tell me they don’t sound the same. Anyway, the first episode follows the first trial of the first game, The First Turnabout. So, before I talk about the episode SPOILERS FOR THE FIRST CASE OF THE GAME… Though, granted, it’s incredibly obvious who the killer is, so this whole spoiler bit was pointless… Shit. Anyway, in the game, Phoenix Wright is to defend suspected and childhood friend Larry Butz, who was framed for the murder of his ex-girlfriend, Cindy Stone. The only witness and true...

Hi, El_Noire here! With the first two episodes of the popular Manga Series Boku No Hero Academia, or My Hero Academia, being released, many Anime fans have been wondering if all the hype surrounding the series is warranted, if they should even bother with it. As a follower of the Manga since chapter 1 i am very bias, i'll be honest, but i truly believe that yes, yes you should.

Now, you may be wondering, "What exactly IS My Hero Academia?" I can give you that and a can of pop, but i think a quick summary should work.

The story follows a young man by the name of Izuku Midoriya, a boy born without a "quirk"(super power) in a world full of super heroes and villians. Izuku wants to be a hero, but was born without a quirk, leaving him at a huge, basically crippling, disadvantage compared to his superhuman peers. I can't say much without spoiling Episode 3 before it drops this weekend, but you should get the gist.

Many fans have touted this series as being the next big-time Shonen, the spiritual successor to Naruto, and it isn't just because they share a genre. There are some similarities here and there, but MHA is not AT ALL a clone of...

Yeah, I know that I have said this before, but screw it. I love anime. Is it the only thing I love. No, not even close. Hell, anime isn’t even my favorite animated show ever. But, it’s still good. And no, again, I am no weeaboo. I can’t stress that enough. And yet, not every anime has to be a bunch of guys fighting each other, or a bunch of random fan service. It can also be a very well thought out series. And that series is known as Bakuman.
The series follows a young boy named Mashiro, who had an uncle known for creating manga, or a Japanese comic book for those stubborn enough to ignore me. However, after his uncle died from overwork, Mashiro wanted to do his best to try and have a normal career. He also has a crush on this one girl named Azuki, but he is too nervous to tell her. But, when his classmate and top student, Takagi, finds out about his crush by finding the drawings in his notebook of her, he asks Mashiro if he will help him in creating a popular manga. At first, Mashiro declines, but soon, when Takagi tells Azuki that he will be a part of manga, and asks if Azuki will be a voice actress for the anime adaption of their manga. Mashiro has no choice to...

Corpse party is something with, high-school students going to a different dimension of a old elementary school, the charm they did is actually how they got there, i seen all the episodes, it is all about gore, death and elementary students that got killed by someone named Sachiko Shinozaki, after the principal killed Sachiko, he accidently killed his crush, Sachiko's mother Yoshie, After playing the games and watching the anime, you could check it out if you want ^^, if you have heart problems and is scared of blood I recommend not to watch.
