My Top 5 Psycological Anime’s

Published March 30, 2015 by Shay Taree
Since I recently got one of my friends into watching a great psychological anime I thought it would be cool if I posted my top 5 psychological anime’s. I will also post the synopsis of each series. Also I got the synopsis from myanimelist.net! 

My top psychological anime’s

Death Note
  
“Yagami Light is a 17-year-old genius from Japan who is tired of his life, school, and the state of the world as he knows it. One day, on the way home from class, Light stumbles upon a dark notebook with “Death Note” written on the front. Intrigued by its appearance, Light reads the first few sentences, only to find out that it states that anyone whose name is written inside will die. Discarding it as a joke, Light continues his daily activities. Soon after though, his human curiosity takes the better of him and prompts Light to try the notebook, discovering the truth behind the first sentence. Now, with power in his hands, Yagami Light is on a quest to change the world and become God of the New World. His path to holy status won’t be easy however, as another genius, known as L, is working against Light’s beliefs and Light himself. Who will win this power of Gods between humans?”
Elfen Lied
  
“The Diclonius, a mutated homosapien that is said to be selected by God and will eventually become the destruction of mankind, possess two horns on their heads and have a “sixth sense” which gives them telekinetic abilities. Due to this dangerous power, they have been captured and isolated in laboratories by the government. Lucy, a young and psychotic Diclonius, manages to break free of her confines and brutally murders most of the guards in the laboratory where she is being held, only to be shot in the head as she makes her escape. She survives, falling off a cliff into the ocean and manages to drift along to a beach where two teenagers, Kouta and Yuka, discover her. Having lost her memories, she was named after the only thing that she can now say, “Nyuu,” and the two allow her to stay at Kouta’s home. However, it appears that the psychotic side of Lucy is not dead just yet…”
Higarashi No Naku Koro Ni Series
  
“After moving into the quiet town of Hinamizawa, Maebara Keiichi spends his days blissfully in school often playing games with his local friends. However, appearances can be deceiving. One fateful day, Keiichi stumbles upon news of a murder that had occurred in Hinamizawa. From this point on, horrific events unfold in front of Keiichi, as he soon learns his close friends may not be all that they seem. Based on the amateur mystery game by 07th Expansion, the story is told in a series of different scenarios.”
Mirai Nikki
  
“This psychological thriller, based on the manga written and illustrated by Sakae Esuno, is about Yuki, a loner who’s not very good with people. He prefers to write a diary on his cell phone and talk to his imaginary friend, Deus Ex Machina – The God of Time and Space. However, Yuki soon learns that Deus is more than a figment of his imagination when he makes Yuki participate in a battle royale with eleven others. The contestants are given special diaries that can predict the future, each diary possessing unique features that give it both advantages and disadvantages. Within the next 90 days, the contestants must try to survive until there is only one left standing. The winner will become the new God of Time and Space.”
xxxHolic
  
“Watanuki Kimihiro can see spirits and other assorted supernatural creatures, which is quite a bothersome ability he strongly dislikes. On the way home one day, while plagued by some spirits, he is inexplicably compelled to enter a strange house. There, he encounters Yuuko, a mysterious woman who claims to be able to rid him of the ability to see and attract the troublesome creatures—for a price. She demands that he work at her “store” that grants wishes to people, and thus begins Watanuki’s adventures through weird and wonderful events.”

Akame Ga Kill Full Review

Published March 27, 2015 by Shay Taree

So I finally after more than a week have finished Akame Ga Kill and omg this show had me going until the very end. There is so much death and killing in this show that I definitely need to watch something happy next. 

Many of you were right that I shouldn’t get attached to any of the characters and I had to keep repeating that to myself so that I didn’t. Unfortunately I did get quite attached to a few of the characters. Sorry but I couldn’t help it.
But the action in the show was awesome and while then action was literally everything I did really love the sweet and funny moments in the show. Including this sweet moment between Mine and Tatsumi. 
  
The two fights that I loved the most was the fight between Akame and Kurome 
  
and also the fight between Akame and Esdeath. Both fights were amazing and made me wish that I could fight like that. 
  
The ending of the show kind of strange to me but it did complete the series rather well. But I think I may have to read the manga of the series to see if anything happens next.
Overall I give this series a 9/10. The action was awesome and the music definitely fit the series well. This show would keep anyone interested and watching from beginning to end. 
But let me know what you thought of the show and this review. Comment down below and like always I will answer back. 

Anime Or Manga?

Published March 25, 2015 by Shay Taree

I know that many people may have a preference when it comes to this but then there are also others that may not. What I’m talking about is which do you like better anime or manga?

  
For me I actually like anime’s more than manga’s. I think it’s because I watch more anime than I read manga. Now manga is definitely not a bad thing since that is where a lot of the anime we know and love come from.
  
I think what also makes me like it more is the fact that when it comes to action sequences I’m able to see it all happen fluidly instead of how it’s done in the manga.
But which do you like better anime or manga or do you like both equally? Leave a comment down below and like always I will answer back.

Sailor Moon Crystal Episode 18 Review

Published March 23, 2015 by Shay Taree

So I just finished watching the newest episode of Sailor Moon Crystal and I actually enjoyed the episode.

It started off with kind of a quick recap with what happened during the last episode with Sailor Jupiter now being kidnapped. Also then Venus decides that once and for all they have to figure out if Chibi-Usa is friend or foe. Although they find out in the most unusual way which was by using one of Petz Malefic Black Crystal earrings. Chibi-Usa became scared as soon as she saw it in Mamoru’s hand.
In this episode we are also introduced to Calaveras who is the medium of the Spectre Sister. She uses her channeling powers to lure out the Sailor Scouts and is triumphant when Minako does appear.
  
Also Chibi-Usa takes Usagi’s brooch and that’s causes a whole bunch of havoc especially when they are confronted by Rubeus.
  
The best thing though had to be when Mamoru uses a new power that he awakens. I was so happy to finally see him using something besides those roses. 
  
But overall I enjoyed this episode and can’t wait to see Sailor Pluto in the next episode. 
  
I give this weeks episode a 7/10. It was still very run of the mill but it did answer a few questions that arose in the last episode. But what did you all think of this weeks episode? Comment down below and like always I will answer back.

Anime Crossovers! 

Published March 19, 2015 by Shay Taree

I’m sure many of you have heard about anime’s being crossed over with different series or what it would be like. So I present the question to you today of what anime’s would you love to see a crossover of?

For me it would have to these anime’s Sailor Moon & Dragon Ball Z

, Yu Yu Hakusho & Inuyasha

, and Bleach and Inuyasha. 

I just think it would be cool to see the characters interact with each other, see if they would get along or kill each other, or even see if the characters in different series would fall in love with each other. I mean hey anything can happen.
So what do you guys think? What anime’s would you love to see crossovers of and what do you think would happen if they met? Like always comment down below and like always I will answer back.

What Anime Would Make A Good Live Action Movie?

Published March 18, 2015 by Shay Taree

So I had this discussion with a few of my co workers concerning what anime’s would make a good live action movie. I know many people saw the disaster that was Dragon Ball Evolution



and then there was also the whole Ghost In The Shell live action that is planned.

 But what other anime’s may possibly make a good live action

For me I told my co workers that honestly most shows would look good as a live action if the animated show itself didn’t have a lot of effects. Some effects can be done really well so I guess it mostly pertains to what studio does the live action. But any way I think the Rurouni Kenshin

makes a good live action, most of the shoujo anime’s that I’ve seen definitely like Wolf Girl & Black Prince

, and possibly even Yu Yu Hakusho. 

Now I know that a lot of Japanese studios have made live actions of many of our favorite shows but what I’m talking about are American studios getting a hold of these shows and doing the live action. I say this because I’ve noticed that many American studios don’t seem to understand anime and end up doing it wrong or just kind of silly.
But what do you all think? What anime do you think an American studio can do well as a a live action. Leave your comments down below and let me know. Like always I will answer back.
