Anime Character Vlogs! 

Published June 29, 2015 by Shay Taree

This weekend I got a chance to watch a lot of vlogs on YouTube and I can’t lie I’m very obsessed with them. But while watching them it got me thinking about what if some of our favorite characters started vlogging and what would that be like. Now vlogging is similar to blogging but instead of writing your video recording everything. 

A few characters that I could see vlogging was Naruto, Ichigo, Shin, and Tohru. I mostly said these characters because either they are crazy or their friends or people they are around are hilarious and I could see them causing havoc. 

Naruto 

  
would show a lot of his training and even his pranks that would lead him getting beat up by Sakura but there would also be action with all the fighting.

Well Ichigo 

  
I couldn’t really see him vlogging but due to his family and friends I could totally see them being stars of the vlog with how they pop out of nowhere. Plus I this it would be funny to see all the soul reapers trying to figure out what a camera is.

Now Shin 

  
is just hilarious all together but I could see his vlogs constantly being flagged due to content. But still they would be so funny that I would have to watch.

Now Tohru 

  
took some thinking about but I finally decided that she may make a good vlogger due to the fact that all of her friends change into animals which would make that interesting.

Last but not least I chose Goku 

  
because I feel like he would have so much fun recording everyone and I can already picture Vegeta getting annoyed with Goku and the camera!

But what do you think about this and what characters would you love to see vlog. Comment down below and let me know. I would love to know.

Make Your Own Anime Channel!

Published June 26, 2015 by Shay Taree

So I just literally got the idea for this blog post when I started thinking about my Toonami post and what I would have airing if I could. So my question is if you could have your own anime channel what shows would you air and why. Here is the shows I think I would air:

Yu Yu Hakusho

  
– I would air this show since while it is widely known not many people have still seen this older anime and it is definitely not one to miss. The combination of action and comedy in some instances is just great.

Rurouni Kenshin

  
– Just because every anime channel should have at least one samurai show and Rurouni Kenshin is the perfect one to get into liking this genre. There are sword fights for the guys and even some romance for the girls!

Panty & Stocking With Garderbelt

  
– Now this show is just hilarious but would also be the show that would have to show during the late time hours due to the content but still you need a comedy show not just action.

Paradise Kiss

  
– Now you know I would need a romance anime on my channel and Paradise Kiss had a great combination of romance but it’s also not your run of the mill romance which will make many people enjoy it.

Eden Of The East

  
– Since every anime channel needs a suspenseful show and I think Eden Of The East would serve this purpose. 

So those some of the shows I would air. But what shows would you air? Comment down below and let me know. I love when you all join into the conversation.

Is Toonami Boring Now?!

Published June 24, 2015 by Shay Taree

I’ve started to realize that I’m not all that into Toonami as I was before. I’m not sure if it’s because of the shows that are now on Toonami or if it’s the time that Toonami is now on.

I mean I’ve said this before but I wish that Toonami was all day on Saturday since just a few hours in the middle of the night when most people are asleep isn’t enough. Well at least to me it isn’t. Plus maybe it could be because a lot of the shows they are airing are either ones I’m not interested in or I’ve seen before.

Now don’t get me wrong I like Toonami and I would rather it be how it is now rather than not have it at all. But does anyone else agree with me or understand. Comment down below what you think. I would love to know!

Naruto Road To Ninja Anime Movie Review!

Published June 22, 2015 by Shay Taree

So yes I know that this particular Naruto movie came out quite a few years ago but I just now got around to watching it. I actually had forgotten about this movie until I spotted the DVD in Best Buy and that is when I realized that this is the next anime that I want to watch. So let’s get to the review and here is a synopsis of the movie:

“Ten years ago, a gigantic demon beast known as the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox was released from its jinchuuriki by an unknown shinobi wearing a mask. The village of Konohagakure was close to destruction by the attack of the Nine-Tails, but the village was saved by its leader. Minato Namikaze and his wife Kushina Uzumaki—who was the jinchuuriki at the time of the attack—sealed away the demon inside their new born son: Naruto Uzumaki. However, this act of saving the village cost them their lives and they left the future of the ninja world to Naruto.
With the demon fox sealed away, things continued as normal. However, the peace of the village would not last long, for Pain, Konan, Itachi Uchiha, Kisame Hoshigaki, Sasori, Deidara, Hidan and Kakuzu—members of a dreaded shinobi group called the Akatsuki—attacked Konohagakure. Naruto narrowly manages to launch a counter-attack but why have these shinobi appeared when all of them were meant to have died? The mystery remains, but the shinobi are praised by heir families for completing such a dangerous mission. However, one of them who has never known the faces of his parents, Naruto, cannot help but feel lonely. At that exact time, suddenly, the masked man makes his appearance in Konoha. Naruto and his allies are both attacked by the man’s mysterious new doujutsu.”

  
So I think that so far this is one of my favorite Naruto movies. The one reason why I was so excited to see this movie is because of Naruto’s parents and being able to see them more. Plus I was interested in seeing what would happen if Naruto had of had his parents. One thing I will say though is the movie wasn’t what I thought it was going to be about. I went in with the expectation that it was mostly going to be exploring what Naruto would have been like if his parents hadn’t of died but instead it was quite different.

    

Everyone in Konoha was so different in this alternate universe and I greatly enjoyed it! No one was more different that Hinata and Ino since their personalities were totally switched. Hinata was more aggressive while Ino was more reserved. I still really loved the exchange between Ino, Chouji, and Shikamaru. It was pure comedy!

  
Now when Naruto’s parents finally entered the movie and when they showed their last moments with Naruto I couldn’t help but almost cry. The look on Naruto’s face and also just seeing how along he felt knowing that his parents aren’t around was just heart breaking. It definitely gives me the feels every time!

  
But overall I give this movie a 9/10. This movie was really good and definitely gave me the feels during several moments. I also loved how Naruto and Sakura were the main characters and in a way got even closer. But let me know what you thought of this movie or review by commenting below.

Psycho Pass Anime Review!

Published June 19, 2015 by Shay Taree

Alright so after so long it seems I’ve finally finished Psycho Pass and let me say it was definitely a roller coaster ride of a show. I can also see why a lot of people have enjoyed watching this show. 

  
Here is the synopsis of Psycho Pass:

“The series takes place in the near future, when it is possible to instantaneously measure and quantify a person’s state of mind and personality. This information is recorded and processed, and the term “Psycho-Pass” refers to a standard used to measure an individual’s being. The story centers around the “enforcement officer” Shinya Kougami, who is tasked with managing crime in such a world.

In the future, it is possible to quantitatively measure a person’s emotions, desires, and every inclination. In this way, it is also possible to measure a person’s criminal tendency factor, which is used to judge criminals.

This is the story of a team of policemen dedicated to maintaining public order. Some of them work in the Enforcement Division, responsible for the apprehension of criminals, while others belong to the Supervisory Division which oversees their colleagues in Enforcement.”

I’m not going to sugar coat it but there was parts of the show during the middle that got kind of slow and a tad boring. But towards the end with the main villain that really made me sit up and pay attention. 

Now that isn’t to say there isn’t any twist and turns during the series because trust me there are. There were definitely a few moments where I was like WTF just happened. Also similar (at least to me) to Akame Ga Kill try not to get attached to a few of the characters. 

Now the main female lead Akane 

  
definitely at the beginning got on my nerves with how naive she was but it did make sense since she was the new kid on the team. But towards the end of the series she got really tough and became one of my favorite characters with how her mind works and how smart she is. Also I’m sorry to say this because I know he show wasn’t geared towards romance but I really wanted Akane and Kogami to get together. 

  
Sorry but I couldn’t help it hehe.

Now for the other main character Kogami. 

  
Well let’s just say that not only is he hot but he is also very smart and there are underlying things with him that you’ll definitely be surprised to find out. 

Also just as a last thought the music in the show is amazing! The last ending theme All Alone With You by Egoist is just amazing. I listened to it every time and never skipez over it.

But overall I give this anime a 8/10. The music was amazing and the character development of not only the lead but almost all of the characters in the show was great to see as well. Definitely stick with it if you hit the lull like I did because you won’t be disappointed. Plus there is a sequel that I can’t wait to watch. So comment down below on what you thought of the show. I would love to know!

Favorite Cliche Anime Love Story? ❤️

Published June 17, 2015 by Shay Taree

I know that many of us have enjoyed the romantic anime’s at one time or another or even the action anime’s that have a romance or two going on. But what is your favorite cliche anime love story?

So what I mean by cliche is where the story is so predictable and you know how it’s going to come out but you still love it anyway. There is just something about it that still makes it enjoyable no matter how many times you’ve seen that same underlying romantic plot.

My favorites are generally either the hate that grows to love, the unrequited love that becomes love, or the we are helping each other out but then becomes love. Also there are 3 shows that I love that show this love story perfectly! 

Inuyasha: 

  
Now I love this anime and it’s a perfect hate to love story. At first Kagome couldn’t stand Inuyasha and the same could be said about Inuyasha. But throughout the series you could see hints that they were starting to like each other and some were more subtle than others.

Itazura Na Kiss:

  
I literally binge watched this anime and stayed up all night watching it but it was worth it. The main character Kotoko is in love with this guy named Irie and at first he really doesn’t like her and shuts down most of her attempts at getting him to like her. But due to circumstances and over time he starts to fall for her. It was just a cute love story that I can watch again and again.

Toradora:

  
Alright so of course Toradora has that epic kissing scene between the two main characters but still the characters start out trying to use each other to get the person that they were liking. But over time and after spending time with each other they started to like each other.

Even though all these romantic plot lines were predictable it was still really sweet to see your favorite character fall in love with each other.

So what is your favorite cliche anime love story? I would love to know! Join in with the conversation by commenting below!
