Hey you! *offers two cookies, a cup of weird looking orange tea and some loliness ^____^*

Okay so I just made an anime wiki on my site and I want to put in it mostly all anime that has ever existed :P You know, like wikipedia but just for anime, and there's no way in hell that someone can make a full database solo. So if you're interested in helping write on my profile. And of course, everyone helping will be in the credits of the wiki they'll be like admins :3

If you don't feel like helping you can just give me an idea about what would you like to see in a database only for anime ^_^

This is getting ridiculous. It's impossible for me to watch almost any of the anime I want to watch here in the UK:

@09philj, if you want to watch anime for free, you could try AnimeUltima or any other anime watching website like it. All the anime you listed in your post are certain to be on the site.

Most sites like that just make my internet security go "NOPE" with no option to continue to site anyway.

I finished Durarara!! a while ago and Durarara!!x2 Shou yesterday. But I'll talk about Shou later because it's a two-parter and the second part is currently airing.

So anyway, Durarara!! is such a fun show. I really enjoyed it, especially for the characters which are probably the best part in the show.

Durarara is a show about a city, called Iurebora(I probably spelled that wrong and I'm too lazy to check) where there are lots of gangs and other people with crazy strength, powers, and smarts. Durarara is split into three archs, the first arch is about the Black Rider and her head, the second is about the slicer, and the third focuses on a certain gang.

Like I said, the characters are probably the best part. There are so many likable characters and I always have trouble deciding who's my favorite. It has to be either Shizou, Izaya, that Russian Sushi guy, or someone in the Dotachin group.

Art style is very simple but it somehow feels fitting for something like this.

The Opening and closing songs are really great, especially the openings. Just so good. I haven't paid attention to the music while the show is going on though so...

Anyway, Durarara!! is definitely an anime you'd want to watch. It's also dubbed for you people who prefer dub.

Akame ga Kill is the most recent anime that I've finished and it's an alright show. According to a few people, because of how many characters die it's a bland Game of Thrones.

The show follows a country boy named Tatsumi and he's on a personal mission to make a name for himself in the capital's military and send money for his village, which is currently in poverty. However he soon realizes how corrupt the capital is because the prime minister is controlling and taking advantage of the child emperor's inexperience at ruling a kingdom. Because of this, the rich are basically free to do what they want. After a 'near-death experience' he is recruited by Night Raid, a group of assassins aiming to overthrow the prime minister and anyone else taking advantage of the corrupt society. He must then learn the ways of an assassin.

Let me give you some advice on the characters, don't google their names. I was spoiled 4 times on different character's deaths because I wanted to find out their voice actors. Anyway, the characters are likable, they all have a personality you can easily identity them by. However, they're not lovable. Every time a character died, especially my favorite character, I never actually felt too bad. Why? Because I didn't really feel a connection with anyone. There was literally a 'main' character who died in about 4 episodes after you meet them. Seriously.

The animation was pretty plain. I'd call Naruto's animation average, well this is a bit less than average but not by too much. I don't have anything against the animation but it didn't really standout as anything special.

The opening and ending songs are probably some of the best I've heard. The sub voices are also pretty good. I do have one thing to say about the dubbed version though(which is currently airing on Adult Swim for those interested), and that's the opening after episode 1. For some reason in episode 2 they switch the original opening to some trashy rock and roll noises. Not too sure if that's in any other episodes after but I would guess they do.

So Akume ga Kill is a pretty good show, but it definitely isn't anything great. I'd suggest this if you're bored and have nothing to do.

I found a copy of Ghost in the Shell in my local second hand DVD store. It was in a box set with Akira (Which I immediately sold to my friend at cost price since I already own it.), and something I've never heard of called Ninja Scroll. I'll have to get back to you on those.

Wow, all of these movies are really good. You've never heard of Ninja Scroll? It's a huge part of anime culture, very important to introducing America to anime.

I'm going to re-post an abridged version of my last post here which apparently never went through for some annoying reason.

Nearly 2 weeks ago I finished watching Mawaru Penguindrum.

Before I go any further with this I would like to give out a warning that there is some non-explicit sexual content in a couple of episodes that made me nearly stop watching the show.

Now, if the prior warning is no big deal for you, then I would very highly recommend this show. The voice acting *I watched dubbed* was good, although one of the character's voices really started to get on my nerves. The whole style of the show was very unique, I won't say the art style, because that's not quite right.

I went into it knowing next to nothing about it, and I'm glad that's how I went into it. All I knew is that it was a psychological anime about the concept of fate. I will throw this in for you, though, it's a total tear-jerker. I finished episode 2 thinking "wow, this is really lighthearted and funny show, how could it possibly deserve its reputation as psychological?" I finished AT LEAST 2 out of the last 5 episodes in tears.

Definitely one of my all-time favorite shows.

I recently watched Expelled from Paradise (a movie by the way) and I have to say it was quite good but not great. I don't really want to reveal much about the plot as it'll spoil the fun of the world building done by the movie. The animation was quite good despite being CGI. In terms of plot, despite being around an hour it was nicely paced. However, a minor warning: despite claiming that it's by Gen Urobuchi, the plot is quite bright and light-hearted.

Anyway, the only negative I have is to do with the music itself. It's okay at best and isn't all that spectacular at all, especially when it came to the fights.

I watched two anime shows since my last post here, but I wasn't really a fan of Tokyo ESP so I won't talk about that.

Instead I'll talk about Shimoneta to Iu Gainen ga Sonzai Shinai Taikutsu na Sekai or in English: SHIMONETA: A Boring World Where the Concept of Dirty Jokes Doesn't Exist. From the english title alone, you know that this show will be filled with funkyness and maybe even some fan service. And yes, it definitely has both of those. However, while I complain about some anime's choice of fan service, this one mostly uses it's fan service for story purposes(and a laugh or two.).

Of course there's the story, It's been sixteen years since the "Law for Public Order and Morals in Healthy Child-Raising" banned coarse language and anything promoting sexual activity in the country of Japan. Tanukichi Okuma is a new student to the most elite school in terms of public moral and is soon blackmailed by Anti-Societal Organization(SOX) learder, Ayame Kajou, to join SOX in order to spread knowledge of sexuality and anything lewd.

The characters are a shining array of awesome personalities(except for Kosuri, gawd she's annoying). I could tell you about Tanukichi, who tries his best from seeing anything lewd, or Ayame, who is probably the most perverted woman I've ever seen. But instead I'd like to warn you about a character. The character I'm referring to is Anna. In the first 3 episodes Anna seems pretty normal. However after some things in episode 3, she turns yandere for Tanukichi. If you don't know what Yandere means, it means that person loves someone to a murderous and crazy level. So Anna is essentially @StormWalker except Anna has a heart. Anyway Anna's love scenes are not exactly for those with heart problems. To tell you how crazy Anna is about love, she once tried making Tanukichi drink her 'love juice'. Yeah...

The music is pretty good. The opening and closings are kinda catchy and the sound effects are just so good. The voice acting is also good and believable. Especially Saotome's voice actress, who is probably my favorite voice actress ever.

I'm not an artist, but Shinmoeta's art is pretty well done. Good job, guys.

Overall, this show is pretty good. Definitely not for everyone as there are extreme moments in the show. But it's just really good and funny.

Over the weekend, I watched both of the OVA side-stories to Kino's Journey and they were pretty bad. They didn't do justice to the original anime series at all and the animation was really low quality. There was also none of the philosophy from the original series that I loved. How to sum up these two things:terrible.

I made what I count as a very bad life decision and watched ten minutes of the first episode of Monster Musume. These are ten minutes I'm never going to get back and will be forever catalogued in the worryingly large part of my mind dedicated to things I wish I hadn't seen. This is a show to lose your faith in humanity to.

Haven't posted here in quite some time. The reason being I haven't watched an anime in awhile. I just watched Hanbun No Tsuki Ga Noboru Sora (Looking up at the half moon) and I had originally intended to watch the first 3 episodes 1 night, and the other 3 the next night. But I kind of fell in love with it the after the first 3 episodes so I decided that the next time I watched it I would start over and watch the whole series all at once.

The first 3 episodes were really great and I love them to death, the characters were lovable and the story was good. Episode 4 was pretty good, not much to say about it. And then there was episode 5. Episode 5 ruins the whole series because they make you completely hate one of the main characters, and there was no reason for it. It didn't have anything to do with the plot and it was completely unnecessary. Episode 6 tried to fix the issue a bit but it just wasn't enough. The ending to the show may have been fine (probably could have been better) but you almost don't even care anymore because you hate one of the main characters.

Would I recommend it? Not really. If the whole series was as good as the first 3 episodes I would have given it as solid 10/10. If the last 3 episodes were the same, minus the part that makes you hate the guy (something that a little editing would do, and you'd never even know what happened *Like I said, completely needless*) then it would probably still be a good 8/10. As it stands though, 5.5/10.

I know that's a pretty long review for such a short show, but I really had such high hopes for it, and it fell so short of them.

Is it too soon to say One-Punch Man? Or too late?

No, it's a good time. Nice to see that someone is actually watching One-Punch Man, too, because none of my friends even know what it is. I love this anime, even though I have just seen the first episode. Perfectly blending action with comedy, it is hilarious. One-Punch Man became so interesting after three years and I love his costume. The villains are probably the best part of the series. Why? A GUY TURNS INTO A CRAB-GUY THINGY FROM EATING TOO MUCH CRAB! The same thing happens again only with cars. A guy loves cars so much he became one (sort of). I am disappointed, however, that they are deciding to do only 12 episodes for the series because it deserves so much more. Yes, they're doing 6 more OVAs, but there should be more to the main series. The chibi action figure for One-Punch Man is awesome, and I am currently planning to pre-order it. Just watch One-Punch Man, you'll love it. It's the one good thing on this fall.
