Oden, similar to hotpot, materials boiled with soup

there is a slice fired tofu underneath which tastes best, the pink thing (i believe fish meat) is good too

rest are just average taste, most importantly the amount is not enough for lunch

so I bought a Yakisoba pan afterwards with the intention of trying something new (also becuz it's pretty famous among anime)

IMG 0398

but i regret it... tastes awful..

IMG 0399

later, went to a lion king show after visit to the bookstore

so i picked up bunko(文庫) becuz of the gorgeous gifts (trading figure + collective booklet of short comic from all bunko works + trading cards)

Later, caught up with the group and went to a Japanese karaoke place

It has huge amount of anime songs and pretty up to date

We ended up sung from the most recent anime songs all the way to the 90ths

End: Total 9 people in one room, most fought for songs, too many people (*‘ω‘ *)

Dinner: Korean package

Also went shopping for manga and dvds

General ★★★★☆

Good for people who want to pass time and relax

Story ★★★★☆

Daily scenes filled with jokes/netas and main character's cute appeals

It seems like the female main char is already dating the main male char since the start of anime

CG ★★★★☆

Chibi version characters, average amount costumes

Design ★★★★☆

I personally like the setting of main character pops up cat ear and tail occasionally

Music ★★☆☆☆

Not any noticeable BGM, Below average cute themed OP/ED

horaizon2 MAIN WEB



Story ★★★★★
The story involves reenact human history, yes the same stuff as on our textbook
therefore we know how it happens and ends, but the ways they are done by the Anime is very imaginative and surprising
For example, the fight scenes of main battle in the second season - reenactment of the Invincible Fleet Naval War: Musashi as mercenary of England VS Blessing fleet of Tres Espana
P.S pretty funny for Toori (main char) running around naked most of the time (even in International Meeting with national leaders)

General ★★★★★
Again, excellent battle system
Just like the first season, fast moving plot
Although again, the story setting is very hard to understand unless you read the novel or do some research
BUT, very very informative

Design ★★★★★
Fabulous weapon designs merge from historical items for instances: Excalibur from England, San Martin from Spain (Tres Espana)
and beautiful yet cool character costumes

CG ★★★★★
Nicely done CG to enhance the battle system

Music ★★★★★
Absolutely awesome BGMs, as of now total 2 OST releases together containing 4 CDs total almost hundred sound tracks
Most, yes I mean most of them are stunning!
Plus I don't really like the OP but the 2 EDs are above average

tickets (plus two others we met later in the theater

About the film:
Basically the plot is same as the TV version
In the beginning of the movie, there was a special interview of the America version movie from the 6 main CVs. And they mentioned there will be some scenes to be shown that were not included in the anime series because of all kinds of restrictions, at first I was moved by this announcement cause i already know the story, but in the end it turned out to be very few, and none of them are stoical scenes.

Still, even for me who watched the anime series already and again on the BD release, the film was stunning and fabulous

Huge applauds between the cut scenes and the end. Even when the movie ended, and staff screen popped out, all the audiences still remained at seat until completely finished. I have been to many movies in cinema before, and this is my first time encounter something like this.

Gossip: the whole film was around 4 and half hours long, in Japanese voice and English subtitle
BTW I didn't look at the subtitle for once from the start till the end 0-0

Gossip x2: we originally thought there would be free goods that come with the ticket (a printed sign board and poster), and others goods for sale, but they didn't have that in new york! later we learned that was los angeles exclusive (damn!)

We went there right after class ended, so we had plenty of time, went riding the Ferris transportation to kill time

(gari gari kun 0w0 found in a Japanese supermarket)

Now, I'd like to quote from a friend that went with me that night, she wrote
但是現在回想起來,可能最讓我感動的,並不是劇情(因為是TV重製版),而是能在影院看劇場版的那份震撼感,觀眾最後那熱烈的鼓掌聲,還有和朋友們一起去等,一起去吃,一起失望,一起分享著劇情。。。雖然帶著無限遺憾,但很感動很美好的回憶OwO

(As I rethink now, the thing that moves me the most, is not the plot (bcuz it was TV remake), but the shock of being in the cinema, audiences' applauds in the end, and the friend that went together, eat together, despair together, and share the plot together... even thought very despairing (I'm not quite agree with this), but it was a very precious memory OwO)

Oh, like my other reviews, here are the ratings

General ★★★★★
Pretty sure it would be fantastic for those who watched it the first time that night
Story ★★★★★
Design ★★★★★
CG ★★★★★
Music ★★★★★
Couple new awesome songs, and new opening scene
Plot
In the city of Mitakihara, a 14-year old girl named Madoka Kaname and her best friend Sayaka Miki are approached by a strange familiar named Kyubey. This creature offers a contract in which a girl can have any wish granted in exchange for becoming a magical girl tasked with fighting against Witches, manifestations of despair that are responsible for unexplained murders and suicides. Meanwhile, a transfer student named Homura Akemi tries to stop Madoka from becoming a magical girl at all costs. As Madoka contemplates becoming a magical girl, she learns that a magical girl's life isn't as glamarious as she thought and is filled with anguish, suffering and despair. Soon coming to learn the dark secrets between magical girls and witches and the burden it places on her friends, Madoka struggles to decide if there really is a wish worth risking her life for.
The spin-off manga, Puella Magi Kazumi Magica: The Innocent Malice, takes place in Asunaru City and follows an amnesiac magical girl named Kazumi who, along with a band of other magical girls known as the Pleiades Saints, starts to discover the dark nature of magical girls as she regains her memories.
Puella Magi Oriko Magica takes place in an alternate timeline to the main series, in which Homura, Mami Tomoe and Kyōko Sakura, along with a young orphaned girl named Yuma Chitose who was abused as a child by her mother, find themselves up against a magical girl pair, Oriko Mikuni and Kirika Kure, who are hunting other magical girls. The prequel story, Puella Magi Oriko Magica: Noisy Citrine, follows Kirka as she starts out being a magical girl and has an encounter with her old childhood friend, Erika.


Oh yeah
Eudemon

Unfortunately by the time I tried to purchase the ticket, the other 2 days were alrdy sold out

So I only went one day, altho I don't have time to go 3 days / 4 days with special offer (even tho many of my friends bought the 3 days' pass)

now, about the comic con, well, the first impression is... massive people !!

a lot of people think of Japanese manga/anime when they hear comic con, some places call it anime festival

in this place is a mix of Japanese and American stuff (I would say the Japanese stuff being the majority), and the pictures I took are all (mostly) Japs

anyhow, let the pictures do the talking

in the end I also took some pictures of new york city night views and the things I bought

Eudemon

天神乱漫



General ★★★★☆
The version I have played is portable ver, since PSP doesn't allow H games
By the end of each flag, there are some scenes just feel so unnatural
(I think this PC to PSP part is poorly done, i know they have to remove those scenes but should at least do some workaround to fill those details)
So to those who want to play a 'complete' version I suggest you go ahead for PC ver (cough..

Story ★★★★☆
Subtly used the setting to plot the story
Love those scenes where sana(さな) glues to the player (that's the 1st flag i have completed, working on other ATM)

Funny ★★★★★
Like above, the funny scenes nicely plotted by the main character's unfortunate curse setting

Design ★★★★★
Good amount of cloths and character expressions for interchange

CG ★★★★☆
Art style bit toward Loli-con, drawing is good but bit less CG images

Music ★★★☆☆
Average OP/EDs, and very few BGMs
Though I like one the daily BGMs, very joyful

Plot


主人公千歳春樹は、生まれながら不幸な体質の持ち主であった。しかし、長年の不幸を経験している本人は、何時しかそれを「平穏な日 常」と認識していた。そんなある日、更なる「不幸(?)」が突然やって来る。自分宛に「生物」とシールが貼られた大きな荷物が届けられたのだ。不審がりな がら開けると、中から神を自称する少女が姿を現して、こう宣言する。
「お主を天罰から守るために来た」
……こうして、春樹の不幸で平凡な日常は、更に加速していく。

Amagami

Originally from a game

amagami ayatsuji tsukasa morishima haruka nakata Sae nanasaki Ai sakurai rihoko takayama kisai tanamachi kaoru

General ★★★★☆

Super love soap anime (makes me itch sometimes..

Story ★★★★☆

every 4 episodes feature one main character

the last two feature a hidden char and his sister (if you don't know what I'm talking about maybe because I only watched the blue ray version I can imagine they are not included in the TV version

CG ★★★★★

Detailed, the light effect is very nicely done

Design ★★★★★

Excellent cloth, and character designs

for example, Rihoko who likes to eat and always wants to lose weight

if you compare her deign to the others, you see she is little fatter but still as cute as (or more than) others

Music ★★★★☆

Both OPs sung by azusa are very good

I personally favor the second one "君のままで" over the 1st one

The EDs are sung by the characters (one for each)

and since they are CVs not music artists, the songs ain't good (for both singing part and making part)

Can't recall any BGM in the Anime

Plot

Two years ago, Junichi Tachibana got his heart broken by a girl who stood him up on a date on Christmas Eve. Now a second-year student in high school, Junichi is wary of love because of his past and dislikes celebrating Christmas. However this Christmas, his encounter with one of six girls from his school, Haruka Morishima, Kaoru Tanamachi, Sae Nakata, Ai Nanasaki, Rihoko Sakurai, or Tsukasa Ayatsuji will finally open up his heart to love again.

Originally from a manga

soraoto The Angeloid Of Clockwork

General ★★★★★

Story ★★★★☆

The first half of the movie is basically review of what happened in the Anime series from the new character Hiyori(風音)'s view to show how she fell in love with Tomoki (智樹)

A lot of ERO funny scenes like usual

And the ending is very heart touching, when Hiyori turned into an angeloid(angel robot) after a tragedy right before she was about to hear back from Tomoki from her love confession earlier

In the end she sacrificed herself to protect Tomoki

The scene I like the most is in the last few minutes of the film, Tomoki went back to the place where he and Hiyori first met. A ray of right shined behind him along with leathers, at last came the sound of bell Hiyori always wears, leaving the audiences a huge imagination space

BTW, I also like the name of Hiyori (sound of wind) which matches the sound of bells she always has on her hair

CG ★★★★★

The fighting scene is very well done

as well as the rest, graphic very detailed

Design ★★★★★

The design of the clockwork angeloid is awesome

Characters also dress up very nicely

Music ★★★★☆

Ending songs so-so

Eudemon

Originally from a manga

Inu X boku Ss

General ★★★★☆

Typical Missy and agent (housekeeper+bodyguard), more suitable for female audiences

Story ★★★☆☆

Day to day scenes, very few fighting (even though the setting of Maison de Ayakashi and half ayakashi half human gives you a good battle sense)

You may also learn some basic info about Japanese ghosts

Btw, the main character said in the beginning that she always says something against her will, in other words, tsundere

Although it's popular among some people, I really hate this type of personality (don't hit me

CG ★★★★☆

Graphic is good and detailed

Design ★★★★☆

Has some sets of outfit, the drawing style is cute as well

Music ★★★★☆

I personally don't like the OP and EDs

but the BGM especially the one plays when she changes form is very good

Plot

The Maison de Ayakashi (メゾン・ド・章樫 Mezon do Ayakashi), better known as the Ayakashikan (妖館), is a high security apartment building where humans with demon ancestors, or youkai, reside, each guarded by their own Secret Service bodyguard. A youkai girl named Ririchiyo Shirakiin moves into the Ayakashikan hoping for some peace and quiet. Instead, she finds herself with the service of the Secret Service agent, Sōshi Miketsukami

咲 Saki Achiga-hen

Originally from a Manga

Achiga-hen is a side story of Saki main story

gallery_1_3_188182.jpg

General ★★★★★

Gossip: Saki is the Anime that led me to learn majong

An anime that makes you want to imitate is a successful anime (at least to me :P)

Story ★★★★☆

NOTE: Only the digital players like Nodoka, Touka, Yumi Etc are playing the realistic majong

By digital player I mean players who practiced majong tons of times to improve the chance of winning rate by switching melds depending on the situation

The others like Saki, Koromo, Toki Etc (who can keep getting 嶺上開花(flower blooms on ridge), 海底撈月(drag moon out of deep sea), and able to see one round ahead Etc)

These girls are just cheating ! (don't hit me

CG ★★★★★

One major selling point to this Anime is they made playing majong like fighting battles

And bunch special abilities that the characters have (yes in reality they're cheating lol)

Design ★★★★☆

Most character wear short SHORT skirts to the point you can see their butts (more obvious in the manga (Saki main illustrated by Ritz Kobayashi))

Makes you wonder why pantsu doesn't show up

and by the way, you might notice the art style of manga for side story looks different than main story

Because it is illustrated by Aguri Igarashi, not Ritz Kobayashi (story by him(her?))

Music ★★★★★

Same BGM inherent from Main, absolutely good tracks

2 ED and 1 OP

especially "Futuristic Player" BGM starts when episode ends, very agitating, although the singing part in my opinion kind of ruined it a bit

See you again in season 2, as well as main story season 2

PLOT

The Achiga Girls' Academy in Nara once defeated regional mahjong powerhouse Bansei High School. It advanced into the national team semifinals but lost to the eventual champion, and the mahjong club was later disbanded.

Six years later, elementary school student Shizuno Takakamo befriends transfer student Nodoka Haramura. The two eventually enter Achiga Girls', but Nodoka transfers out of the school in the second year.

When Shizuno sees Nodoka on television the following year as the national middle school individual mahjong champion, she decides to revive Achiga's mahjong club.

Bakuman

Originally from a manga

バクマン。

the title literally means gambler

gallery_1_3_158947.jpg

General ★★★★★

Even though I've already read the manga, the Anime still keeps me excited

That's how good it is

Just like the manga, every episode ends at exciting point

Story ★★★★★

Both main characters had their heroines in the start

The effort they put into the their work alone the way attracted many other female characters

and they never changed their heart

The psychological descriptions of characters are nice (the story writer really put a lot of effort into this)

As for the main Story

those who never watch/read this Anime might think there isn't much to tell in drawing manga story

That's not true, every difficulty they have overcome, another one soon pops up

I'm not gonna discuss about the difficulties they have overcame, You will know what I mean once you watch/read it

CG ★★★★☆

One small negative thing I have to say is, the Anime production is too focused on speed

Environment and Character expression are not detail enough(exp: light/dark effect)

The manga does much better performance on this part

Altho it's two different platform, hard to compare

Other than that, the anime quality is good

Design ★★★★★

You might be familiar with this drawing style

yes, the art is done by the same artist of Death note, Hikaru no go etc

and like all his works, story is done by someone else

As for bakuman, it is the same writer who wrote death note

Music ★★★★☆

No noticeable BGM, but I really like the OP and 1st ED

Especially the OP lyric uses strive, dream as theme, really nice

See you again on season 3

Plot

The plot begins when Moritaka Mashiro, a junior high student, forgets his notebook in class. His classmate, Akito Takagi, notes Mashiro's drawings in it and asks him to become a manga artist to his stories. Mashiro declines, citing his late uncle, a mangaka, who died from overwork. Takagi incites Mashiro to meet with Miho Azuki, Mashiro's crush, and tells her the two plan to become mangaka. In response, Azuki reveals her plans to be a voice actress. Mashiro proposes to her that they should both marry when Azuki becomes a voice actress for the anime adaptation of their manga. The two then start creating their manga, under the pen name Muto Ashirogi, in hopes of getting serialized in Weekly Shōnen Jump.

After submitting many one-shots to Shueisha, Ashirogi begin with their first published series in Weekly Shōnen Jump, Detective Trap, which is eventually canceled due to its declining popularity. Their next series is the gag manga Run, Daihatsu Tanto!, which they gave up on realizing it would never be popular. Their current series Perfect Crime Party, has been met with considerable popularity but due to its theme, is unfit for an anime series. When their rival, Eiji Nizuma, submits a one-shot for serialization, Ashirogi competes by submitting Reversi which replaces Perfect Crime Party while the latter is moved to Shueisha's fictional monthly magazine, Hisshou Jump. Reversi is later chosen for an anime adaptation with Miho as one of the voice actresses after a public audition. After fulfilling their dreams, the series ends with Mashiro officially proposing to Miho at the place they made the promise followed by their first kiss.

変ゼミ

Originally from a manga

also known as Abnormal Physiology Seminar

gallery_1_3_168392.png

General ★★☆☆☆

The length of the TV anime is only half of regular anime

The OVA tend to get better in over-all quality, but in general, I won't recommend this to anyone

It almost made me quit watching it, but after a long time I finally finished it

Story ★★☆☆☆

Not a story type series, instead focus on short length pervert activities

You can still follow up even you don't watch the episodes in order

Hentai ★★★★★

Well, if you favorite this type of topic, there you go

Music ★☆☆☆☆

No BGM (or none I can recall)

OP/ED no good, I think the maker spent too much energy to show off CV moe points

Design ★★☆☆☆

Drawing style trend to a bit fatty (not that I'm racist, this style is definitely not my favor)

Plot

Nanako falls in love with Komugi and she joins a seminar which he enrolls, but the seminar is an abnormal seminar. Sexual harassment-like assignments and eccentric classmates confuse her.
