Anime Review: Kuroshitsuji

I can honestly say, as of now, I have no idea what this anime is about? I’m not really into the habit of reading anime reviews, because I feel that if I have the time to read a review, then I have time to just watch the anime! (hypocrite, I know!) Well I’m in the process of downloading this anime as we speak! I glanced through the first episode after it had finished downloading to make sure it has english subs and is in good quality, and it DEFINITELY IS!!

From what I can tell, it’s about a young boy who is the master of an estate, with many servants who work for him. For some reason he is wearing an eye-patch, but it just adds to his shota-cuteness. And I believe that the main butler who takes care of him is a demon, but i’ll have to continue watching it later on to find out! It looks like an emo/gothic style anime, but also has comedic moments in it as well! I definitely want to try and show this anime at Nerdacon v4, since it is a recent japanese release, having finished airing the beginning of this year, 2009.

I’ll bring it to one of our anime meetings and let everyone check it out! ^_^

Anime Review: Zipang

Zipang is an anime that I’ve been watching for the past few days now, and I am completely surprised at how good this anime is! I have to admit, during the first episode I had no idea where this anime was going? It started off slow, and was using terms that only a Japanese Navy sailor would understand. Near the end of the anime I had almost given up on it’s plot, thinking it was just gonna be another one of those anime’s that came up short for interesting plot twists. MAN WAS I WRONG!! The anime does a complete 180 it seems, and instead of talking about modernized warfare through todays technology, it takes you back 60 years in the past, to WWII.

zipang2Mirai, an improved Kongou-class Aegis guided missile destroyer, is one of the newest and most advanced ships in the entire Japanese Self-Defense Force (SDF). Her crew, also one of the newest, is lead by Capt. Umezu Saburo and Executive Officer Kadomatsu Yosuke. While running scheduled training exercises one day, Mirai encounters a fierce storm that throws their navigation systems into temporary disarray. After a few minutes of recovery, the crew is shocked to discover that they’ve been transported back in time to June 4, 1942 — The Battle of Midway, during World War II. Letting history take its course for this battle, they manage to avoid the conflict firsthand and make a vow to remain annonymous, changing history as little as possible. However, when the crew comes across the dying Lt. Commander Kusaka Takumi, XO. Kadomatsu’s instincts to save lives takes over, changing the course of history more than he could’ve imagined.

I am a bit of a history buff, so this anime has inevitably caught my attention. Though I don’t know much about the Japanese history during WWII, it doesn’t seem to matter, since everything is pretty much laid out for you in the anime.The production value is really well done, and the character development in the anime makes it extremely interesting! I haven’t quite finished it yet, as I have about another 8 episodes to see, but as of now it has not let me down as far as plot and suspense.

I would like to nominate this anime to be suggested for review for Nerdacon v4 approval. Naturally, I will bring the episodes I want to show to our meeting on tuesday and let everyone get a glimpse of it. If you have any interests in this anime, please make a comment!!

Anime Review: Moetan

This is an anime that brings me personal enjoyment. It’s an anime that makes you believe it’s more for a younger audience, but devilishly fools you with panty shots, mild nudity, and sexual conantations.

The anime is about a girl named Ink Nijihara, who has a high school crush on a boy in her class named Nao Tezuka. (yes, the main character is in HIGH SCHOOL!!) The LOLITA complex for this anime makes it all the more interesting…for some…though there is a wide age range of women shown later throughout the show. Anyway, Nijihara comes into contact with a magician from another world named Mahou Shoujo, who was sent to Earth for more training by the king of his world, and was turned into a cute little duck (with a HUGE lolita complex!) Nijihara is used by Mahou to gain points for his training by becoming the magical girl Pastel Ink. (her transformations are my favorite part of the show!! ^_^)

For someone with a lolita fetish, this anime is perfect, though it doesn’t go too overboard with nudity…until episode 8…and tends to keep it exceptable for even American viewers. (don’t get me wrong, it’s not just for pedophiles!!) It’s a hilarious anime, in my opinion, and doesn’t become too drawn out, with only 13 episodes. If I had to rate this anime, I’d give it a 4 out of 5, because of it’s production value, character development, hot girls/women, and creative storyline. I’ll definitely want to submit this for review to show at Nerdacon v4, happening in November!
