Blood-C: The firsty...


When a friend told me about BLOOD-C, I was so ecstatic. Knowing that this is the Blood franchise I expect that the series will be great... and my expectation is justified! I love it to the very core! But I can't help but to compare this series with its predecessors, Blood: The Last Vampire, and Blood+.

Blood-C is created by CLAMP and honestly speaking I am no fan of any CLAMP anime series (Code Geass, TheTsubasa Chronicles, Xxxholic, etc.). However, since I am the fan of Blood franchise I manage to suppress that emotion.

Between Saya (Blood), Otonashi Saya (Blood+) and Kisaragi Saya (Blood-C), I believe Kisaragi Saya is the most interesting character. She is spunky, cheerful and clumsy. Nevertheless, when she is in the 'zone' she is skillful, ruthless and cold blooded swordfighter. Her alter-ego is the hunter of the Elder Bairns a.k.a Furukimono. Unlike the other Sayas who seem to be overly serious and cold.

In this series the antagonist is know as the Elder Bairns or Furukimono and it seems they view human being as their food source and nothing more. Hence as the hunter of these creatures, Saya has to make sure to stop these creatures from thriving. While fighting these creatures, they keep on mentioning about a 'covenant' and how humans should honour the 'covenant'.

The casts

This anime is definitely not a child material. This anime is gory and bloody (hence the title). The images of human being devoured alive and heads decapitated are not really the image that you should show to any children. The make it even worse, the clarity of the graphics makes the images even life-like.

The power of knowledge


If you are into fantasy, moe and bishies, BIBLIOTHECA MYSTICA DE DANTALIAN (The Mystic Archives of Dantalian) a.k.a Shoka No Dantalian, is absolutely for you. So far, there are only 2 epis and I love the series. It is packed with action and superb voice-acting and the graphics is so incredible.

The series opens with the introduction of the protagonist Hugh Anthony Disward or Huey when he was young. He seemed to be obsessed with books and library. A partially a bibliomaniac, I guess... When he grew up, he inherited a mansion and a library from his deceased grandfather Lord Wesley Anthony Disward. Unbeknown to him he also inherited a Yomihime (trans: Reading Princess) named Dalian.

Huey and Dalian

The 1st episode: Turn-up Book, is about the first meeting between Huey and Dalian. Then one thing led to another, both of them were struggling to banish the creatures that emerged from a cursed turn-up book. In this epi, Dalian finally acknowledged Huey as her Kagimori (trans: The Key Keeper) and granted him the passageway to the Bibliotheca Mystica De Dantalian. At that moment, Huey realised that Dalian was not really a human as she is the guardian of the mystic archives.

Other than the storyline, I also love the graphics and the music as well. A must-watch summer anime series.

Below is the ED entitled Yes, Prisoner by, Marionette... Enjoy! It's creepy and beautiful!

No. 6: A firsty...

Tadaimaa minna-san... It's been a while!

I told you I'll be back. Apparently I haven't forsaken anime and all its glory nevertheless my leisure time needs to be cut into half. Lately, I was and am still preoccupied with my day-to-day commitment. Well, an otaku still has to make a living...

Now let's get back to my entry. I am still watching following Hanasaku Iroha and Ao No Exorcist. Love the series to the core! Other than that, I have bought some anime DVDs but still haven't gotten the much-awaited opportunity to watch them... sigh.. But I have discovered two interesting new series: NO. 6 and THE MYSTIC ARCHIVES OF DANTALIAN. However for this entry I am going to focus on No. 6 first...


No. 6 is an anime series produced by Bones (the same production company that produces Jyu Oh Sei, FMA, Darker Than Black, Ouran Hi Host Club...). The series takes place in an alternate universe and it revolves around two protagonists, Schion and Nezumi. FYI, No. 6 is actually referring to an sectors of regions. In this universe, the regions of the earth are divided into sectors and No. 6 happens to be an ideal city created for the elite.

On Schion's 12th birthday, he met a mysterious wounded boy named Nezumi (trans: Rat) as he broke his bedroom's window. And since it was raining Schion sheltered him. Nezumi told him that the so-called ideal city was made as a brainwashing tool. The next morning Nezumi was gone and Schion was arrested for harbouring, according to the police, a criminal. And because of that he and his mother were banished from their luxurious home, Chronos, and moved into a shabby appartment in Lost Town...

4 years after later, Schion worked as a park operator. While doing his job he inadvertently stumbled upon a dead old man. However, after much investigation, he realized that the body did not belong to and old man. It belonged to a young man who apparently had aged rapidly. He saw a beetle under the skin of the dead body...

One thing led to another, Schion and Nezumi were reunited under a peculiar circumstances and before Schion even realized they reached a place named Western District. A place which is the exact opposite of No. 6...

Well, I hate spoilers and I believe you do too. What I adore of this series is the graphics and the portrayal of the two main characters... Initially I was rather worried of following this series because I am no fan of yaoi anime. However as the series progresses I believe that the relationship between Schion and Nezumi is more like a brother/friend relationship. Nezumi is more like an older brother and vice-versa.

Nezumi: I have ponytail...And I am not a sissy!


A bad dye job!

There have been only 2 epis so far and I am so looking forward for the 3rd.

Ao No Exorcist: My first impression

Finally I got the chance to watch the very first epi of AO NO EXORCIST (trans: The Blue Exorcist) and I adore it. This anime is worth watching and I am going to follow this series till the end.

In 1st episode: Demons Dwell in the Hearts of Human, we are introduced to the main protagonist Rin Okumura. He has a twin, Yukio who is the exact opposite of him. Yukio is bookish, mild-mannered and intelligent while Rin is rowdy, rough delinquent and a tad cantankerous. Both of them live in a old church together with their guardian named Shiro Fujimoto.

It seems that, Rin is a loser and always runs into trouble whenever he goes. Nevertheless, unbeknown to him, he possesses a special power as a result of his 'special' lineage....

I really love the portrayal of the protagonist and his characteristic. The graphic and animation are excellent and the best of all, I really adore the ED theme. The title is Take Off by a South Korean boy band 2PM.




I can't wait for the ext episode... Finally a good anime series that is worth watching!

Deadman Wonderland anime PV Trailer



This is someting that I might like... Best of all, ROMI PARK will be the voice of the male protagonist! Now, how cool is that??!!!

I have downloaded the first epi via realityLapse.com but since I am up-to-my-nose occupied with work and other errands thus, watching it will be put on hold... Anyway, I hope the characteristic of the protagonist will justify Romi Park's effin' awesome talent. Just you wait!

I THINK might like it...

Lately, I found that anime series are not like they used to be. Or is it me who has changed? I notice that the themes and the subject matters of most anime series last season are not my cuppa tea. Age factor, I reckon. Or I would like to rephrase it as: I am getting older. I am HUNGRY for good series like Inuyasha, or Jigoku Shoujo or Paradise Kiss or my favorite Honey and Clover. Anyway while browsing for a new anime series to watch I stumbled upon HANASAKU IROHA... I tried watching the first episode and I think I MIGHT like it....

Hanasaku Iroha centers around Ohana Matsumae, a 16-year-old teenager living in Tokyo, who is left in the care of her estranged grandmother, following her mother's elopement with her boyfriend. Ohana arrives at her grandmother's country estate to realize she is the owner of a Taishō period hot spring inn called, Kissuisō. She begins working at Kissuisō, at her grandmother's request, but finds herself at ends with many employees and customers at the inn. Initially feeling discouraged, she decides to use her circumstances as an opportunity to change herself for the better and to make amends with her deteriorating relationship with the Kissuisō staff for a more prominent future.

I am TOO lazy to even rite a review for the first epi...
