Manga Spot – Bloody Mary

Manga Spotlight – Bloody Mary

BloodyMary-GN01

I am such a fangirl so this manga had to be mine. Its about pretty boy vampires and thats all I really wanted.

The plot is very simple boy is the latest generation of a family line whose surname is Maria. He is a priest in training and for some reasons vampires can’t wait to drink his blood, unfortunaetly he doesn’t understand his powers and is getting by on tricks. One day red headed vampire boy turns up asking Maia to kill him. Our vampire is called Bloody Mary and his past is hazy all he knows is he can’t die and is bored of living so long. He doesn’t want to drink blood and knows only a Maria can kill him. Two enter a deal of protection, Mary will protect Maria from vampires and help him leanr how to use his powers and when Maria has his powers he will kill Mary.

So its hard not to be amused that our boys have the names Maria and Mary but their fun characters. Mary being cute nerotic angsty vampire boy with a secret past and Maria being a little more cold and calculated with a mystery past. There’s obviously more to the plot as revileved by the ending a deeper conspiracy.

But really I wanted to see cute boys paw at each other and hug so I got what I wanted out of it. I love vampire yaoi/shonen ai and I think it will be a very subtle shonen ai. The art is pretty and the character designs are attractive. It has potential to be more complex and intriguing so I think for a first volume it sets things out nicely, establishes the characters and the world.

I will be continuing with this series I hope for good things!!

Diabolik Lovers – even hot bishonen couldn’t save this one!!!!

diabolik_lovers_by_serlyharuno-d6xj1h6

Diabolik lovers, proof that you can put 6 extremely hot vampire bishies into an anime and it still can be boring. I keep watching these damn Otome based animes and I keep just not getting on with them. These guys are always so hot but the main girl that you would play as in the game is always so dull.
This girl, Yui, is the sweet innocent, dull, vapid boring protagonist that just keeps walking into stupid situations. She pretty much is made these vamps play thing and I can’t see why any would fall for her. If you were forced to live in a mansion because your father is posted overseas and it supposedly belongs to family then found out the 6 vampire brothers live there, what would your do? Well you’re a young attractive girl maybe you would flirt with the brothers see which one you would pair off with. Sounds well and good but they are vampires and see you as food; they bite you and take your blood whenever they feel like. They hit you, push you about, mock and humiliate you, stating how your only food and shouldn’t act above your station as a lowly human blood bank. They threaten you with rape and to feed off you and no matter your struggles and protests no one comes to help you and you are devoured on a regular basis. Sounds romantic!!!! I mean hot vampire guys are great and who doesn’t like a bad boy but come on there is no way you want to romance cold hearted killers that use you for food, sport and pleasure.

Well Yui being the dim but innocent girl still seems to approach them. I know most of the games are based on the idea that you’re youthful and innocent feelings can bring forth love and by being so refreshingly pure that you can melt even the coldest hearts. But god this girl is not innocent and pure she is naïve and dumb. You’re treated like food so when you find a sleeping vampire you A) leave him alone or B) wake him up so he gets made molests and feeds off you tossing you to the floor when done. How about you hear a male voice singing and you A) go explore to find the singing vampire, who then teases you, abuses you, feeds off you and leaves you lying in the dirt or B) you ignore it and hurry to your room to stay under the radar. It goes on like this, instead of lying low and trying to avoid being played with Yui just goes up and makes causal conversation with Vampires and then gets upset when they attack her. God I wanted her to just hurry up and get eaten and the vampires kill her. Why can’t these Otome based animes have spunkier heroines is that too much to ask? I’m not asking for a full on Ryoko Matoi from Kill la Kill, she doesn’t need to be a completely strong fighter type that can beat down everyone around her but just a little more Miyaka from Fushigi Yuugi or even Kyoko from Skip Beat an amazingly entertaining and spunky female character.
Read my review of Skip Beat here:http://www.lzsy.co.uk/2010/04/skip-beat-%e2%80%93-a-lovely-easily-watchable-anime-with-a-female-protagonist-that-is-brilliant/

This anime suffers from having a completely none relatable female lead and maybe it still is a victim of the Japanese society and its education of women. It’s no secret that Japanese media is a male dominated industry and still makes decisions based on Japans ideals on a women’s place and the commercialisation of products for women in contemporary Japan. Since the very first girls comics in Japan in the Meji era that taught Japanese girls to act like proper young women this trend has continued in some aspects of the media. So the idea that ideal Japanese girls are pure and innocent still permeates through the media but it’s a shame that something as exciting as a Vampire anime can be so vapid. Even the plot can’t make up for it as it gives no real answers to the past of the vampire boys, their parents and why the resurrection of one mother is so bad.

Diabolik_Lovers_~Haunted_dark_bridal~_full_1634794

After sitting through 6 eps of vampire jail bait and a recap on Yui’s feeling we finally see some story development. So it turns out that the 6 boys have one father and 3 different mothers. No real idea who the father really was and how he managed to simultaneously marry 3 vampires and father 6 sons while also being some kind of government official. It is never made clear if this politician is also a vampire. But one boy Subaru’s mother appears to be locked in a tower, don’t know why or why she asked him to stab her to death. The next two brothers mother is training one Shuu, to be the head of the house who clearly rather be off playing while ignoring the other son Reiji who enjoys studying and would make a better head. Then there are the triplets of one mother, these triplets Ayato, Leito and Kanata for some reason conspire to kill their mother who may be having an affair with her husband’s brother. Why they kill her I have no idea there was no reason, she may have been bad but not kill worthy bad I mean these boys are no princes. Two look like brothers one like the mother but he is clearly psychologically damaged in the fact he always looks half crazed and talks to a stuffed animal but again no background on his behaviour. But alas mother dies her lover steals her heart and in the end uses Yui to resurrect her. Well Yui is certainly more interesting for an episode but the Vampire boys reject the return of their mother band together to save Yui, kill their uncle and then each tell us how they hope you’re ready for a lifetime of pain and pleasure as their food and sexual object.

tumblr_mvqypcFlUI1qkonr7o1_1280
It’s all so stupid, plot makes no sense these boys have angst but never enough to redeem them or endure them to us. They are fantastically attractive and they look good all vampired up and covered in blood so visually it’s an erotic display but that its. This anime is all visual but nothing else and even my wildest vampire fantasy has me placed higher on the food chain then object, there is nothing erotic being told get ready for dinner hope you don’t mind living for me so I can eat you worthless but delicious girl. I mean this anime is even more disappointing then Shinsengumi vampire anime Hakuoki, I thought that was poor and after I realised it was an Otome game it made sense that the main girl in all her honest and pure innocence became the focus of the Shinsengumi’s interest but it least it had the decency of having a mutual love story and a plot but I digress.
Unless you hard core love Otome games or happy just to look at pretty boys regardless of plot then do watch it but I’d rather watch a silly but fun sports anime or just yaoi at least then I have nothing but buckets of pretty boys and no vapid good natured innocent flower slowing down my plot.

My Top Traps

So these are just my fav’s and their are certainly a lot more out there and I may add more as I discover them. I do love a cross-dressing pretty boy!!!!

1. Rui Ninomiya - Gatchman Crowds, I like a pretty boy with a bucket of angst trying to do the right thing. Also one that has a bisexual alien villan molesting him. Plus Rui is smart real smart I love an intelligent boy, glasses are very attractive.
ruininomiya

2.Yuuki Kei - Moyashimon. A Goth Loli pretty boy whose is smart and hard working and not afraid to play with gender stereotypes. Yuuki is just a smart and sexy young man.
2yuukimoyashimon

3.Nuriko – Fushigi Yuugi. One of my first ever traps the lovely but short tempered and tough as they come Nuriko. A pretty boy that shared my love of Bishonen Emperor Hotohori. He is loyal and strong and the first trap in my anime discovery many years ago.
3nurikofushigi

4.Mariya Shidou – Maria Holic. I love this boy why because he is a vindictive, manipulative little sadist who is so fun to watch. He may be a cruel tease and a bully but he does it with style and elegance. Sometimes its more fun to see a bit more of a bad boy trap then a blushing little thing.
4mariyaHolic

5.Yuuta Sasaki – Cuticle Detective Inaba. Again don’t let a blushing innocent pretty face fool you. I love Yuuta cause he is crazy proper Yandare bunny boiler type. He has many fooled with his sweet charm and feminine ways but alas he is another fun off his head little sadist who isn’t afraid to knock of the completion to his Inaba’s attention.
5cuticle yuuta

6.Honjo Kamatari – Rurouni Kenshin. Poor boy fell in love with the wrong man and is now a villain but one hot deadly bad boy. Feminine and charming, tomboying and pretty he is also not someone you want to get into a fight with unless your one tough fighter. Who doesn’t love a bit of deadly power hidden behind such a pretty face.
6Kamatari_kenshin

7.Tieria Erde – Gundam 00. Gundam has always had that gay vibe I for one love to slash and yaoi it up and the pilots are getting more bishie. But Tieria is the best, all full of angst and I adore an angsting pretty boy who also pilots a Gundam. Plus this is one hot cross-dressing pilot he is very sexy in his red dress, even better when he has to pilot in his torn clothes looking all dishevelled and delectable.
7Tieria_Erde_gundam

8.Anna Gram – Phi Brain. I love this delicate pretty boy he is a little fluffy and away with the fairies but still I have a soft spot for him. Maybe its because I’m also an artist and relax when I paint or the fact that this pretty boy is also very smart and cheerful.
8Anna_GramPhiBrain

9. Mariandale – Ixion Saga. I love him because of his spirit and vitality. He is fun to watch and also tough. Mariandale has a fun personality playing on his gender role and proud of who he is and the choice he has made to identify himself as a woman. As Ixion is a comedy anime he is used a lot for humour and I like the way he flirts or his voice suddenly drops when he means business.
9ixionmariandel

10.Chihiro Fujisaki – Dangan Ronpa. Another sweet little thing who’s innocence and gentle nature is endearing. I like him because he didn’t quit because he tried to better himself and live how he wanted plus he is cute. Also another smarty a computer wiz who is essential to the lives of his friends and is a loyal person.

My Yaoi, Shonen ai, Boys love Slashable anime list

I am going to try and compile a list to every anime I’ve seen that has a slash pairing in it. Some of the pairings are to my taste and may not be the same characters you slash, some are my OTP’s and some are total guilty pleasure pairings. I have watched a lot of Yaoi, shonen ai and slashy series so want to help others find all the gems out there and have a wealth of fanfiction, doujinshi and good shows to watch. I think I’ll trying naming all the anime with boys love in it and then go back and put in all my pairings, first I’ll list the yaoi and shonen ai anime’s then the ones that are just slashable. So here goes my ultimate Boy Love anime list!!!

Slashable Anime

1. Angel Sanctuary – Kira/Setsuna , Rosiel/Katan
01
2. Card Captor Sakura – Touya/Yuki, Touya/Yue
Ah CCS Clamp’s little magical girl series that is so good. You all know I love Clamp though I prefer the dark stuff but CCS is brilliant. Cardcaptor Sakura begins when ten-year-old fourth grader Sakura Kinomoto accidentally releases a set of magical cards called Clow Cards from the Clow Book, created and named after half-English, half-Chinese sorcerer Clow Reed. Each card has its own personality and characteristics and can assume alternate forms when activated. The guardian Beast of the Seal Cerberus emerges from the book and tells her it is now her responsibility to retrieve the missing cards. As she finds each card, she battles its magical personification and defeats it to seal it away. Cerberus acts as her guide, while her best friend and cousin Tomoyo Daidouji films her exploits and provides her with battle costumes. Sakura’s older brother Touya Kinomoto watches over her, while pretending that he is unaware of what is going on.

9. Bleach – Renji/Ishida, Ikkaku/Yumichiak

God I love this show so much so that I have hollow ichigo’s mask tattooed on my back. Ichigo Kurosaki is a teenager gifted with the ability to see spirits. His life is drastically changed by the sudden appearance of a Soul Reaper —one who governs the flow of souls between the human world and the afterlife—named Rukia Kuchiki, who arrives in search of a Hollow, a dangerous lost soul. When Rukia is severely wounded defending Ichigo from the Hollow, she attempts to transfer half of her reiatsuenergy to Ichigo so that he can defeat the Hollow. However, Ichigo takes almost all of her energy, transforming into a Soul Reaper and allowing him to defeat the Hollow with ease. With her powers diminished, Rukia is left stranded in the human world until she can recover her strength. In the meantime, Ichigo must take over Rukia’s role as a Soul Reaper, battling Hollows and guiding souls to the afterlife realm known as the Soul Society. The story follows Ichigo as well as his human friends that develop strange powers and their battles. Also thrown into the mix are the other members of soul society other shinigamis and all their conflicts, conspiracies, ambitions and corruption. I love shinigami lore so anything based on this is a must for me but this series is also just brilliant all the powers and weapons you could ever wish for plus some of the best battles I have ever seen in anime history. I really don’t know where to begin there are great character designs and from a series that’s now over 200 eps you know there’s gonna be loads of great characters, wonderful back stories, complications and contradictions, fights to the death and omg how brilliant are these fights. Every time I think they can’t get better a character levels up, unlocks a new ability, evolves their weapon or just loses the plot. Ichigo is a great protagonist and I don’t normally like the leads as they are a bit too honest and pure but he has such a great stubborn and arrogant streak. I love how flawed these characters are and how grey some of the show is not so black and white in terms of who is good or bad or what is best for humanity and the spirit world. It is very epic as you would guess from a 200 plus series but it’s very addictive watching.

10. DN Angel – Daisake/Satoshi

11. Fushigi Yuugi – Hotohori/Nuriko
the first ever fantasy bishonen harem based anime I ever watched and still one of the best. In all the years since I’ve watched this no other series has had the depth of character, beautiful bishonen and amazing story telling. I watched all 42 episodes in one go as I was so obsessed with this series. The plot centres on Middle-school student Miaka Yūki is under a lot of pressure to pass the entrance exam for the competitive Jonan Academy. Her friends do not believe she will get in, but she is determined to because her best friend, Yui Hongo, has applied for the same school and she wants them both to go to the school together. While at the library one day, Miaka and Yui encounter a strange book known as The Universe of the Four Gods. As a result of reading this book, they are then transported into the novel’s universe. However, Yui is transported back to the real world almost immediately. Inside the novel Miaka discovers that she is the Priestess of Suzaku and destined to gather the seven Celestial Warriors of the god Suzaku in order to summon Suzaku and obtain three wishes. She falls in love with the Celestial Warrior Tamahome, who eventually reciprocates and Miaka’s desire to use a wish to enter the high school of her choice begins to shift towards finding a way to be with Tamahome. Yui, who is also drawn into the book when she was trying to help Miaka to come back to the real world, becomes the Priestess of Seiryuu, working against Miaka out of jealousy over Tamahome and revenge for the humiliation and pain she had suffered when she first came to the book world. The series describes the various trials that teenagers Miaka and Yui face, both quest-driven and personal. Feeling betrayed, the two oppose one another as priestesses, bringing together their own respective warriors and vying for the chance to be granted three wishes by the gods whom they hope to summon.

14. Durarara – Shizuo/Izaya

The plot follows Mikado Ryūgamine is a young man who longs for the exciting life of the big city. At the invitation of his childhood friend Kida Masaomi, he transfers to a school in Ikebukuro, Tokyo. Masaomi warns him about people he doesn’t want to cross in the city: a violent man dressed like a bartender, an information merchant, and a mysterious gang called “Dollars.” And to top it off, Mikado witnesses an urban legend on his first day in the city: the “Black Rider,” the supposedly headless driver of a black motorcycle. The narrative follows all of the characters equally, showing how their lives intersect, creating a greater plotline from what each character knows about a common incident.

18. Getbackers – Juubei/Kazuki, Ban/Ginji,
this has to one of the best action anime’s out there, you soon work out that my fav shonen anime’s are all based on people with powers and weird weapons fighting each other. There’s normally no explanation to why these people have super powers and weird abilities or strange weapons but boy is it fun to watch them fight each other. Getbackers get the prize for the best because I love the character designs. I mean there are loads of interesting characters with wonderful abilities Dr jackal is one of my fav’s, he’s neither good nor bad but more on the dark side I mean he seems to manipulate knives that live in his blood and has no problem for violence.

22. Hitman Reborn – Spanner/Shoichi, Dino/Hibari
22
23. HunterxHunter – Leorio/Kuraprika
ah the series that naruto clearly ripped off since its older and in my opinion so much better. Twelve years prior to the start of the story, Ging Freecss left his infant son, Gon, with Gon’s aunt Mito on Whale Island. Gon, raised believing both his parents were dead, finds out from Ging’s apprentice, Kite, that his father is still alive and has since become an accomplished “Hunter”. Hunters are licensed, elite members of humanity who are capable of tracking down secret treasure, rare beasts, or even other individuals. Gon leaves his home to follow in his father’s footsteps as a Hunter by taking the “Hunter Examination”, a series of brutal tests involving skill, survival, and teamwork. Prior to and during the exam, Gon meets and befriends three of the other applicants: Kurapika, the last remaining member of the Kurta clan who wishes to become a Hunter in order to avenge his slain people; Leorio, a prospective physician who claims to desire to become rich; and Killua Zoldyck, who fled his life as a member of a notorious assassin family. These 4 enter the hunter exams together and the story follows their trials to become hunters and then their duties as hunters. The series is great because like so many battle based series they don’t spend 3 eps on one fight they get down to it in one ep making battles intense and harsh. The series doesn’t waste too much time on fillers and works to tell the story as we learn more about the past of these characters. The anime finished before the manga so again you have to read the manga to know what happens next but it does complete each story arc bringing you closer to the characters and the past and futures they face.

48. yuGioh – Yami Bakura/Malik, Kaiba/Amalda
48
49. Yu yu Hakasho – Kurama/Hiei

another great tournament based battle anime from the same team that brought me HunterxHunter, both manga’s are by the same person so of course both are brilliant. YuYu Hakusho follows Yusuke Urameshi, a street-brawling delinquent who, in an uncharacteristic act of altruism, is hit by a car and killed in an attempt to save a young boy by pushing him out of the way. His ghost is greeted by Botan, a woman who introduces herself as the pilot of the River Styx, who ferries souls to the “Underworld” where they may be judged for the afterlife. Botan informs Yusuke that his act had caught even the Underworld by surprise and that there was not yet a place made for him in either heaven or hell. Thus Koenma, son of the Underworld’s ruler King Enma, offers Yusuke a chance to return to his body through a series of tests. Yusuke succeeds with the help of his friend Keiko. After returning to life, Koenma grants Yusuke the title of “Underworld Detective”, charging him with investigating supernatural activity within the human world. Soon Yusuke is off on his first case, retrieving three treasures stolen from the Underworld by a gang of demons: Hiei, Kurama and Goki. Yusuke collects the three treasures with the aid of his new technique, the “Rei Gun”, a shot of aura energy fired mentally from his index finger.The series itself is based around 3 huge tournament themed arcs and is very focused on the battles. It can take a few episodes for each fight and does have the very clichéd fight battle. Hero starts winning a bit, gets cocky, badie shows true strength, hero gets knocked back, badie reveals why he is in this fight and a bit of back story before trying to beat hero, hero finds new hidden strength and makes a comeback defeating bad guy. Every character gets their fair share of wins and losses and it’s always exciting to see what happens. I love the intense battles the interrelationships between the competitors and the fact that sometimes things aren’t black and white and friends and enemies aren’t set in stone or easy to judge too quickly.

59. Tsuritama – Yamada/Natsuki, yuki/Haru
The plot for Tsuritama starts simple before it goes off on its own colourful alien themed tangent. Yuki Sanada is a high school student who lives with his grandmother, a woman whose career requires frequent relocation which prevents the boy from establishing any real friendships, much less the social skills necessary to initiate them. Whenever he becomes anxious, he freezes in place, unable to breathe, and feels like he is drowning. Donning a markedly demonic expression—so potent with seemingly latent rage that others become wary of him at its appearance. Shortly after arriving at their home on the grandmother’s most recently sanctioned work base, the island of Enoshima, a zealous transfer student named Haru—wielding a water gun and sporting a fish bowl atop his head—appears on their doorstep claiming to be an alien and that he will henceforth be living in the same house; the grandmother agrees to allow such if Haru simply meets one condition (which is undisclosed to the audience). Haru’s presence continually makes Yuki uncomfortable. The two also meet a secluded young fisher, Natsuki Usami, nicknamed “The Fishing Prince”. An Indian man named Akira watches Haru from a distance with his duck Tapioca.

75. Deadman Wonderland – Genkaku/Nagi, Senji/Toto
It’s been a while since I’ve seen an anime this good and if you haven’t heard or seen of this then the pun in my tittle is perfect for this series. At only 13 eps I watched it in one setting which was easy to do as it was so engaging. It’s like a really messed up psychotic version of Alice in Wonderland but completely twisting the classic fairy tale to a violent and dangerous nightmare version.
The plot for Deadman is that a massive earthquake ravaged Japan’s mainland and destroyed most of Tokyo, sinking three-quarters of it into the ocean. Ten years later, the story shifts to Igarashi Ganta, a seemingly ordinary student attending Nagano Prefecture’s middle school. An escapee, a survivor of the great earthquake, Ganta has no memories of the tragedy and has lived a normal life. This all changes when a strange person covered in blood and crimson armour floats through his classroom windows. Grinning madly, the Red Man massacres Ganta’s entire class but instead of killing him, embeds a red crystal shard in Ganta’s chest. Within days of the massacre, Ganta is declared the sole suspect and, following a quick trial, is sentenced to life imprisonment in Deadman Wonderland, a massive theme park like prison. Arriving at the prison, Ganta is fitted with a special collar which monitors his location and life signs. Due to the heinous nature of Ganta’s ‘crime’, he has to live out his imprisonment under Deadman Wonderland’s ‘Death Sentence’.

Ok so yes this is an anime that I started watching because of the fan girl in me. Of course I wasn’t going to let it go unwatched there’s an entire cast of hot bishies one side is military (yay uniforms) the other is the church (yay flouncy robes). I have to say I loved this series it was everything it needed to be, the men were hot, the action great, the story interesting, the scoring was good, the world was interesting and the slash was abundant.

Train Heartnett, code named Black Cat is the thirteenth member in an organization known as Cronos. Cronos are an elite group of “erasers”, professional assassins that are sent in to assassinate targets they deem too dangerous or too corrupt to be dealt with in any other manner. But Train learns a valuable lesson in human compassion from young “sweeper”, professional bounty hunters, Saya Minatsuki. He learns there is more to life than being the cold hearted killer he has become and soon yearns for a life of freedom where he can make his own choices and follow his own path. He leaves Cronos and his path crosses that of Sweeper Sven Volfied. They cross paths while investigating a bio-weapon that turns out to be a genetically created girl named Eve. After Train decides not to kill her Sven takes her in as well as Train. They form a small “unconventional” family unit and group of Sweepers living their lives free and as they choose.
Unfortunately their lives are disrupted by the appearance of Train’s x-partner Creed Diskence from Cronos who himself has left the organization but to pursue more sinister and destructive goals. Creed is determined to see Train return to his cold hearted nature and help him and his newly formed group of villains cause havoc in the world. Train must learn what his true nature is and where he really belongs in this world he has chosen to live freely in.

94. Togainu no Chi – Akira/Keisuke (shame the anime wasn’t full yaoi like the game)
When I found out they had made an anime to Togainu no chi I was over the moon, couldn’t wait to watch it, bouncing off the walls. It’s based on a BL game and while I haven’t played the game because I have no idea how to get an English patch for a Japanese game I do have all the SG’s (screen grabs). This means I know all the characters and all the possible pairings and endings. It’s one violent and explicit yaoi game so I was very looking forward to watching it play out in anime. While the characters still look great and have good voice actors for them the rest of the anime was a bit of a let-down. The basic story is that Akira, the number one street fighter, is framed for a murder he didn’t commit. While his sentencing is being completed he is visited by a mysterious woman who gives him the option of rooting in prison or taking up a tag going to a district called Toshima and participating in the Igra game. Toshima is a violent and deadly district sealed off from the normal world that has its own set of rules. Igra is a game in which you collect tags from opponents, the tags are similar to cards and you have to try and get a royal flush so that you can challenge ll Re and gain the position of drug lord. Everyone is given 5 random tags and you basically have to fight people for them in the hope you opponent has a tag that will get you closer to making it to a royal flush. This leads to violent battles and a lot of bloodshed and death. Add to the mix a drug called Line that gives you super strength while turning you mad you get a great gritty and harsh environment. So far so good was nice knowing the plot behind the game and images I’d collected from it and it was a world and plot that appeals to my violent aesthetic.

106. Full Metal Alchemist - Roy/Ed

I have just finished watching the new series of FMA and what can I say truly amazing I loved it I really didn’t want it to end. Now I loved the original series I thought it was great and was in love with the character Roy Mustang. The basic plot is that of 2 brothers whose mother dies so they break the biggest taboo in their world, Human transmutation. Basically set in a world that is a cross between early 20th century Europe mixed with Alchemy, this is not magic this is the more scientific and practical implication of magic the true art know as Alchemy, there are some that know Alchemy. These two brothers after the loss of their mother decide to use Alchemy to bring her back from the dead. Alchemy works by equivalent exchange you need to give something of equal value to get something back, i.e. turning a lump of mud into a rock statue. So the brothers collect all the things that make up a human body and try to transmute it back into their mother. Unfortunately human transmutation isn’t as cut and dry as normal alchemy and in the process of trying to recreate their mother Al loses his body and Ed loses his arm. Making it worse the thing that is created is such a twisted and unrecognizable thing that it soon dies and is nothing like their mother. Ed in a fit of desperation affixes his brother soul to a suit of armour as to not lose him altogether and in the process sacrifices his leg as toll for the alchemy to save his brothers soul. After this event they are visited by Colonel Roy Mustang hearing about two very young but talented alchemists that he wants to recruit them. After what he sees of them he gives them a choice, wallow in the horrific fate they have dealt to themselves or move forward. Ed decided to take up the colonel’s words he becomes a State Alchemist working for the military. State Alchemists see themselves as the dogs of the military being bound to be used as human weapons whenever their skills are required but in exchange they are highly paid and have high positions meaning access to research and policies above the regular army. Ed becomes a state alchemist in order to find a way to get his and Al’s body back. Ed has auto mails, a mechanical limp, to replace his missing arm and leg and thus is named the Full Metal Alchemist. All state alchemists are given a name according to their ability; Roy is the Flame alchemist because of his expert and deadly use of flame alchemy.

108. Kurogane no linebarrels – Reiji/Satoru
The plot centers around Hayase Kouichi (and it may have something to do with how annoying this boy is that made me want to throw a book at the screen), he’s a bit of a loser, the class go body that gets picked on but he dreams of being a hero of justice. Hayase is always getting saved and protected by his much more attractive and cooler best mate but Hayase doesn’t seem very grateful about this as he feels it’s unfair to always have his mate come to his rescue. As with all those that seek power his lucky or unlucky break comes when a giant robot falls from space crushing him to death. Well through the laws of anime magic and unexplained plot twists the robot saves his life and makes Hayase his pilot. Hayase is overjoyed, he now has power, can stand up for himself and a giant robot. Also with giant robot comes a large breasted girl with amnesia and Hayase vows to protect. So when other robots come to destroy his home a Hero of Justice is born. Unfortunately Hayase is an arrogant sod who flashes his power like a school bully, wont listen or show any respect for the friends that have helped and stood by him since childhood and thinks his new buxom friend should just stand around and be protected. No wonder all the other characters hate him I was waiting for someone to kick the crap out of him. Luckily this came when good guy and his robot from the secret organisation trying to save the world, in fact beat the crap out of Hayase for being an egotistical overconfident pain in the arse. Unfortunately it’s not until death of the only character with any sense that Hayase realises he’s being a pratt.

109. Himitsu: Top Secret Revelation - Aoki/Maki
I seem to be quite good at finding little anime’s that not many people have watched but really should. This series I found happens to be excellent though very little info is on the web about it. The story takes place five decades from now, when brain scanners have been perfected to the point that the government can retrieve up to five years’ worth of memories from people’s minds — even if they are dead. The investigators of the National Research Institute of Police Science’s 9th Forensics Laboratory must weigh the ethical choices in the ultimate invasion of privacy as they delve into people’s minds to solve crimes. The show is a psychological version of something like CSI but with more weight and a far more disturbing turn. We have an elite police unit that focuses on trying to solve the crimes that would remain a mystery if it wasn’t for this fantastic new technology that is able to look into the memoires of the victims. The catch is the brain must be removed from the dead victim before a 48hr period to ensure that the memories are intact. With storylines such as political assassinations, brutal killings and deranged serial murderers there is much for fans of hard core police and crime dramas to enjoy. For me personally I prefer a little more dark side crime series so this was perfect. I have always loved mystery amine’s such as Detective Academy Q but this is a nice step away from series aimed at a younger audience into a far more adult show. The show itself is pictured more realistically, with character designs and settings looking much how you would find them in the real world. This immediately gives you a more realistic setting rather than the usual fantasy and escapist image of many anime’s. Also it gives you a little insight to the problems of the modern world the nature of escalating crime, humanities passion for more perverse violence and the changes in our culture and society that brings about new waves of crime. For example one story involves the nature of body modification and the new youth culture that has gone beyond tattoo’s and piecing as a way to express themselves and are finding more extreme ways to change their bodies and express their individuality.

Tsuritama – Friendship, fishing and Aliens.

The plot for Tsuritama starts simple before it goes off on its own colourful alien themed tangent. Yuki Sanada is a high school student who lives with his grandmother, a woman whose career requires frequent relocation which prevents the boy from establishing any real friendships, much less the social skills necessary to initiate them. Whenever he becomes anxious, he freezes in place, unable to breathe, and feels like he is drowning. Donning a markedly demonic expression—so potent with seemingly latent rage that others become wary of him at its appearance. Shortly after arriving at their home on the grandmother’s most recently sanctioned work base, the island of Enoshima, a zealous transfer student named Haru—wielding a water gun and sporting a fish bowl atop his head—appears on their doorstep claiming to be an alien and that he will henceforth be living in the same house; the grandmother agrees to allow such if Haru simply meets one condition (which is undisclosed to the audience). Haru’s presence continually makes Yuki uncomfortable. The two also meet a secluded young fisher, Natsuki Usami, nicknamed “The Fishing Prince”. An Indian man named Akira watches Haru from a distance with his duck Tapioca.

I loved this little series it was a great feel good nice little anime that made me laugh, cry, cheer up and then I got to go find fan fiction as it also had slashiness to it. It’s a very bright up beat series and while I tend to enjoy the darker more gritty anime’s or the ones that are surreal or violent sometimes it’s nice to watch a series that is uplifting and cheerful. The animation itself is bright and colourful rather refreshing not afraid to be different and uses a variety of colours and textures. The character designs are cute and the guys are not bad to look at, my favourite being moody teen with a good heart Natsuki. You’ve got to love happy go lucky alien Haru and his free spirited fun attitude, not quite understanding humanity but trying to while trying to work out his emotion without ever being emo.
[HorribleSubs] Tsuritama - 04 [720p]_mkv_snapshot_06_33_[2012_05_03_13_49_31][2]

The series does remind me of Ghibli’s Ponyo, not only the magical feel, bright animation style and cute characters but the very fact that it’s about fish. Like Ponyo’s little mermaid retelling this time our mermaid is a merboy alien. Haru comes to earth and chooses Yuki to be his friend and companion trusting him with his feelings and mission. Throw into the group the on the surface anti-social scruffy moody Natsuki with his family angst and shying away from his dreams and we have 3 interesting boys working through their issues and finding friendship. They bond over fishing an activity that has far more to do with the plot then you would think and as 3 isolated characters keeping themselves apart they learn to be friends to understand each other and support each other.

Whats nice about this series is that they don’t totally angst out, there’s a touch of humour to their dilemma’s It never gets to heavy and they learn to smile with each other. Yuki has never had friends and clearly never spoke up for himself or knew how to interact and it’s an alien with no real idea of human etiquette and personal boundaries that brings the 3 of them together. It’s a sweet message that everyone has issues but sometimes you need to be open to understand others before you can see your own problems properly and find true friends.

Tsuritama1
The last character to join the 3 is Indian Yamada and his pet duck Tapioca. He is secretly working for a government agency tracking down and eliminating alien threats. Of course by the end of the series he has been one over by Haru’s sincerity and Yuki and Natsuki’s passions and determination. It helps that Yamada is also a huge fishing fan and begins to bond with the boys through this mutual act until he is part of the gang and realises having friends and a true cause to fight for is far more important than government missions and following protocol. Its Yamada’s secret organisation that also creates some of the more random elements, they call themselves Duck, have a signature stance and seem to wear waterproof bunny outfits to fight the true alien menace.
tsuritama_09_1

The series doesn’t take itself too seriously it’s fun and with wacky going on like a lost alien turning the people into dancing zombies, you can’t blame it for keeping the tone comedic. But even though it’s funny it is touching, I did cry I felt for these characters not just the main ones but the secondary ones as well. So much of television gives us suffering and torture for entertainment we become numb. But to see a simple story about friends having fun and moving forward together is warming. Sometimes tearing up over something happy helps you realise that seeing good and warmth between people is entertaining and real .
Tsuritama_full_1084399
By the end of the series I was happily slashing Yuki/Haru and Yamada/Natsuki. You can’t make a series about 4 pretty boys bonding and saving the world together without expecting my yaoi goggles to come out. I did really love this series is was fun and feel good and had more heart than a lot of shows I’ve watched recently. Anime sometimes get too complicated and it’s nice just to see from the heart story telling.

Black Cat – a fun action adventure helped by a hot villan

Black-Cat-Wallpapers-001

Synopsis: Train Heartnett, code named Black Cat is the thirteenth member in an organization known as Cronos. Cronos are an elite group of “erasers”, professional assassins that are sent in to assassinate targets they deem too dangerous or too corrupt to be dealt with in any other manner. But Train learns a valuable lesson in human compassion from young “sweeper”, professional bounty hunters, Saya Minatsuki. He learns there is more to life than being the cold hearted killer he has become and soon yearns for a life of freedom where he can make his own choices and follow his own path. He leaves Cronos and his path crosses that of Sweeper Sven Volfied. They cross paths while investigating a bio-weapon that turns out to be a genetically created girl named Eve. After Train decides not to kill her Sven takes her in as well as Train. They form a small “unconventional” family unit and group of Sweepers living their lives free and as they choose.
Unfortunately their lives are disrupted by the appearance of Train’s x-partner Creed Diskence from Cronos who himself has left the organization but to pursue more sinister and destructive goals. Creed is determined to see Train return to his cold hearted nature and help him and his newly formed group of villains cause havoc in the world. Train must learn what his true nature is and where he really belongs in this world he has chosen to live freely in.

Black Cat is an anime in a similar genre to Getbackers, there is a large cast of fun and interesting characters each with there own unique abilities. Set in an alternate world where people develop these unique abilities and then put them to use for either evil or good. The anime itself is fun, exciting, and full of action, it keeps one very entertained and the fight sequences are impressive to watch. The real heart of this anime lies in the characters of Sven, who acts as both a mentor and father figure to both Eve and Train. He shows them compassion willing to go to great lengths to keep them safe as well as respecting them as individuals. The “unconventional” family unit is at the core of this anime. It is touching to see the bond and relationships form as well as strengthen throughout the series. Black Cat has a good mixture of action and adventure with heart and emotions. It has good character development of its main protagonists including that of the villain of the piece Creed.
85106_1297153143970_full

What it does suffer from is the fact that with such a large cast of interesting side characters there is not enough time to flesh out all the individuals. Some characters suffer from less back story and less screen time even though they are captivating and interesting. At 23 episodes it covers a vast amount and there is never a dull moment. It is well paced throughout the series up until the last episode where it would have been nice to see a little more of the individual battles as well as what happens to all the characters after the final conclusion. The last episode feels a little rushed in comparison to the rest of the series but even that is not enough to bring down the overall enjoyment factor of the series. It may have been better to have had that extra one episode just to give us a little more detail and insight but Black Cat does have a satisfying ending and a good conclusion to its story line.
The animation itself is good, clean and attractive with vibrant colours and with sequences that have been animated well. The battles as said earlier are exciting and very well orchestrated, full of detail and life with beautiful character movements. The colours are always in tune with the mood of the anime, you know when things have taken a darker turns when the colours themselves become darker. At the same time there is such a varied and beautiful spectrum of colour used during climactic scenes that the anime always looks alive and vibrant. Black Cat also has a beautiful score that uses a mixture of orchestral pieces, up beat contemporary scoring and simple melodies. The anime is well scored from exciting and passionate battle music that drives even more power into battle sequences to wonderful classical piano pieces played to emphasis the situation and character development of villain Creed. Black cat also has a simple and touching melody and song sung by the character of Saya, it’s an almost sad but touching song that reminds one of simpler times and forgotten childhoods. The song is repeated many times throughout the anime and acts as a reminder to Train of the simple and free life he wants to achieve, it a song from the heart and can dwarf even the most passionate of orchestra pieces with its calming tone.
In conclusion Black Cat is very much worth watching, with its fun cast, exciting story and touching relationships it has a little bit for everyone in it and I recommend it.

Top 5 Shoujo Anime’s

MaiHime

1 – Mai Hime/Otome – I love these series I normally stay away from all girl anime’s but there are a few that slip through because they are brilliant so worth watching. The Mai series is one of these great exceptions to my rule. For a start the characters are really interesting it has a good mix of female characters that represent many different types of female attitudes and character types. It’s easy to relate to at least one female character and they are all strong in there different ways no silly bimbo types or wilting flowers. These are strong girls with morals, ambitions and strength of character so it’s quite nice to see such positive portrayals of femininity. But apart from the great characters this series is also brilliant for action scenes. The fights are great as each girl has unique and amazing powers. Not only do they have a power but an original weapon and a secret beast they can summon. This means battles are amazing and there is no lack of action going on. By Otome they also have the transformation sequences which are brilliant adding the extra awesomeness of amazing costume designs to the already grand mix of weapons and abilities. The plot for Mai Hime is about Mai Tokiha is an ordinary high-school girl who has recently transferred to the Fuka Academy with her younger brother, Takumi. However, a routine boat ride and a chance encounter with a mysterious young girl changes everything. Mai discovers that she and some of her classmates possess the powers of HiME and must battle against mysterious creatures called Orphans and an ominous organization called the Searrs Foundation. Along the way she must face her own demons and understand what it means to love.

My-Otome’s story takes place in the distant future on the planet Earl, colonized by immigrants from Earth centuries ago. “Old technology” has survived in the form of Nano machines that allow female virgins to take the role of Meister Otome’s – bodyguards, attendants and warriors that serve the royalty of various kingdoms. Arika Yumemiya has come to Wind bloom Kingdom in search of her mother, whom Arika knows was an Otome. On her arrival she meets the top Coral Otome student, Nina Wáng, and Windbloom’s heir to the throne, Mashiro Blan de Windbloom. The series follows Arika’s progress as a student at Garderobe Academy and the machinations of those desiring the destructive power of the old technology for themselves. Some of the characters have been reincarnated into the new universe and thus the series are linked by some shared themes and story arcs. Another great aspect of the show is the great score by Yuki kajiura most famous for the scoring of the Hack/Sign anime. A beautiful and haunting soundtrack a mix between operetta and fantasy infused dance music. These series also being predominantly female characters have a Yuri couple and some slashy undertones but the main couple have an interesting relationship and it’s nice to see the relationship progress.
shiznat-fav
It’s not so black and white and this relationship as with many have a lot of tragedy and difficulties to overcome, love isn’t so easily gained and being in love isn’t all roses for these girls giving birth to as much grief as it brings happiness. I love this series because of this mix of strong female characters, honest portrayals of love and heartbreak mixed with genuine drama, action and battle.

card_captor_sakura123-788535

2 – Card Captor Sakura – Ah CCS Clamp’s little magical girl series that is so good. You all know I love Clamp though I prefer the dark stuff but CCS is brilliant. Cardcaptor Sakura begins when ten-year-old fourth grader Sakura Kinomoto accidentally releases a set of magical cards called Clow Cards from the Clow Book, created and named after half-English, half-Chinese sorcerer Clow Reed. Each card has its own personality and characteristics and can assume alternate forms when activated. The guardian Beast of the Seal Cerberus emerges from the book and tells her it is now her responsibility to retrieve the missing cards. As she finds each card, she battles its magical personification and defeats it to seal it away. Cerberus acts as her guide, while her best friend and cousin Tomoyo Daidouji films her exploits and provides her with battle costumes. Sakura’s older brother Touya Kinomoto watches over her, while pretending that he is unaware of what is going on.
card_captor_sakura04_800
The fact is I like Sakura and her clumsy giddy little self, she’s honest and sweet and good natured. She has surrounded herself with good friends and has a good family so everything seems so sweet and innocent. What makes me like little this magical girl series above all others (and it’s not a genre I normally go for) is that underneath its sweet exterior is a far more adult and intriguing world. CCS at its driving force is about love and how it concurs and prevails in all its forms which means that this series is full of relationships not normally represents. I mean there’s Sakura’s best friend with her lesbian crush on Sakura, one of Sakura’s school friend is secretly engaged to her teacher, there’s another age difference couple, reincarnated love and then there is Touya and Yuki.
imagesCAQHTHTM
This is the reason I love this series it makes it very obvious that Sakura’s brother is in a relationship with his best Friend Yuki and as the series progresses so does how much these two people mean to each other. Their relationship is beautiful what Touya gives up not to lose Yuki is amazing and touching and it also has the extra bonus of the truth behind Yuki and sharing his soul with the beautiful Yue. Nothing like a cute bishie guy that transforms into a hot bishie angel to make me a happy fan girl.
Yue
Oh I could fan girl about this yaoi paring all day it was one of my first ever yaoi pairings and it was lovely but then CCS make relationships beautiful and touching. Sakura’s growing understanding of her own feelings and her relationship with Syaoran is a lovely journey to watch. It also helps that the series is also touching and fun, the Clow cards are interesting and while the first half concentrates on collecting them the second is on transforming them. Therefor some interesting episodes, battles and magically powers. Also with all magical girl shows there’s plenty of outfit changes and a great running joke about the costume changes and the magical staff spell casting ritual that all these shows need. Good thing Sakura twirls the baton at school.
escaflowne

3 – The Vision of Escaflowne – a beautiful fantasy series and a classic of the genre. The series focuses on the heroine, Hitomi Kanzaki, and her adventures after she is transported to the world of Gaea, a mysterious planet where she can see Earth and its moon in the sky. On Gaea, Earth is known as the Mystic Moon. Hitomi’s latent psychic powers are enhanced on Gaea and she quickly becomes embroiled in the conflicts between the Zaibach Empire and the several peaceful countries that surround it. The conflicts are brought about by the Zaibach Empire’s quest to revive the legendary power from the ancient city of Atlantis. As the series progresses, many of the characters’ pasts and motivations, as well as the history of Atlantis and the true nature of the planet Gaea, are revealed.
vision-of-escaflowne

This is fantasy at its best an amazing world a strong heroin, beautiful bishonen, war and battles, fantasy creatures, conflicts and conspiracies between kingdoms and an epic journey of self-discovery. Of course being a shoujo this also has a great romance and a love triangle. It’s pretty obvious who Hitomi is going to end up with but it’s wonderful to see how this romance unfolds. Now as a slash fan there are very few hetro couples I like and they have to be convincing and also something more than the average romance, I like a little tragedy and hardship and coming to terms with the bigger picture while being tested by new feelings. As you guessed this series has all this mixed in with the battles and action of an epic fantasy series. Also this series has the beautiful bishonen Allen Shezar who is a fav for me.
EscaAllen
When I first got into anime this was one of the first series I watched and Allen was one of the first anime crushes I ever had. Tall blue eyed, long blonde hair, a swordsman, honourable, chivalrous, strong and brilliant in battle he was perfect and boy did I love him, between him and Hotohori from Fushigi Yuugi I was in bishie heaven. Of course the worth of this series is not based on how hot one of the characters is but it helps. The worth is in Hitomi’s voyage of discovery both of self and the world and its battles. It has been many years since I’ve watched the show but it has stuck with me as one of the best and very few fantasies over the last 15 years have ever matched it.
1801834

4 – Fushigi Yuugi – the first ever fantasy bishonen harem based anime I ever watched and still one of the best. In all the years since I’ve watched this no other series has had the depth of character, beautiful bishonen and amazing story telling. I watched all 42 episodes in one go as I was so obsessed with this series. The plot centres on Middle-school student Miaka Yūki is under a lot of pressure to pass the entrance exam for the competitive Jonan Academy. Her friends do not believe she will get in, but she is determined to because her best friend, Yui Hongo, has applied for the same school and she wants them both to go to the school together. While at the library one day, Miaka and Yui encounter a strange book known as The Universe of the Four Gods. As a result of reading this book, they are then transported into the novel’s universe. However, Yui is transported back to the real world almost immediately. Inside the novel Miaka discovers that she is the Priestess of Suzaku and destined to gather the seven Celestial Warriors of the god Suzaku in order to summon Suzaku and obtain three wishes. She falls in love with the Celestial Warrior Tamahome, who eventually reciprocates and Miaka’s desire to use a wish to enter the high school of her choice begins to shift towards finding a way to be with Tamahome. Yui, who is also drawn into the book when she was trying to help Miaka to come back to the real world, becomes the Priestess of Seiryuu, working against Miaka out of jealousy over Tamahome and revenge for the humiliation and pain she had suffered when she first came to the book world. The series describes the various trials that teenagers Miaka and Yui face, both quest-driven and personal. Feeling betrayed, the two oppose one another as priestesses, bringing together their own respective warriors and vying for the chance to be granted three wishes by the gods whom they hope to summon.
Fushigi_Yuugi_01
This is one of those one girl surrounded by many hot guys and as the series goes on you wonder which she will get together with as they all fall in love with her. There is really only one couple and that is Miaka and Tamahome and god is their romance epic I mean these two go through more ups and down and personal tragedy and testing then I’ve ever seen. One thing about this series is that buy the end I had learnt my first Japanese and that was “doshite” which mean “why?” as Miaka seems to say it all the time, ever episode sometimes many times over going “doshite Tamahome, doshite?”. Ok so if you take out the epic roller-coaster ride of a relationship in this series you all have the epic journey of Miaka as she tries to find her guardians and help save this world. There are so many things to love about this series apart from the bishonen quota, it is tragic as hell OMG do these characters go through hardships and trials no one is safe from personal upset and horrific events. I mean this series isn’t afraid to go dark to expose the weaknesses in humanity, the pain of love and loss, the horrible things a person can go through and how hard life can be. It has issues ranging from rape to poverty and family tragedy. This is one series that needs to be watched with a box of tissues I cried so much as its not afraid to kill off characters and by the end I was a gibbering mess cause well the death toll was higher than anything I was used to. The series is based around the old Chinese mythology of the 4 gods, Miaka having the power of Suzaku the phoenix. Through the series the other 3 gods are discovered as well as all the priestess and there powers. It wouldn’t be a fantasy series without discovering magical powers and how to use them, also the abilities of each bishonen and their weapons. This means that there are also amazing fights utilizing these weapons and abilities. Now for what made me truly fall for this series, my first ever anime crush and one of my fav bishonen archetypes, Hotohori.
Fushigi-Yuugi-31-1024x768
How I love this man, tall elegant, very feminine with long flowing hair and beautiful eyes, he is also an emperor with dignity, humanity, honest and honourable, kind and beautiful plus an expert swordsman with strength and passion. I never got why Miaka turned him down for Tamahome he is so much more everything but it did leave the door open for my first ever slash pairing as its revealed that one of the women in the series is in fact a man that entered the emperor’s harem because he is in love with Hotohori. This is an interesting relationship and is also a big draw for me as these are both very beautiful and strong men trying to find a way to deal with their feelings. This series is pretty epic and engaging and even after writing this review I think I may have to re watch it now!!!

5 –Magic Users Club – A comedy magical girl series that amuses and entertains. The plot starts as an enormous cylindrical alien spaceship named “the Bell” by humans descended upon Earth one day. Military forces attacked this entity but their attempts were in vain, as the Bell easily vaporized all human technology. The Bell sent out robotic probes to explore and analyse human civilization and, since the probes didn’t cause any harm, people soon adapted and went about their everyday lives. A group of high school students at Kitanohashi High School’s “Magic User’s Club” attempt to combat the alien menace using magic.
magic-users-club-english-dubbed

The MUC is made up of three lovely magical girls a very stupid an amusing male leader and the brilliant second in command bishonen. This series is simple fun it is a comedy that doesn’t take itself too seriously and that makes it magic. It’s more of the mayhem and mischief kinda of series with magic through in to add to the crazy fun. It also has the romance angle and why anyone would fancy the main guy is beyond me especially his incredible hot male friend; this is one time when I reject the yaoi relationship as it’s just not sexy!!!!! Aburatsubo is extremely feminine, completely gay, flirtatious, long red hair and is also a nice guy. I do love a good bishie helps me when choosing a series but sometimes I like to watch something silly. This series is just a bit of fun magic, it makes you smile and entertains you don’t need to think too much just sit back and enjoy knowing that it’s not going to through tragedy and epicness at you. Even a fan like me needs a time out from the more in-depth and intense series and this is a great entertaining gem.

Ristorante Paradiso – A little restaurant in Rome where older men in glasses work and romance always follows.

So I was attracted to this because it is such a niche market a very specific genre. I mean its old Bishonen (their all in their 50’s) and they all have glasses. So if older men in glasses are your thing then you’ll love this series. This series is one of those little slice of life dramas, nothing really happens and nor does it need to. We are being invited into this world to watch and learn about these characters and their lives. It’s a nice drama about a group of people who are happy in their world and are happy to share it. The bump in the road comes from the introduction of a new character into their little world. Nicoletta comes to the restaurant to see her estrange mother and blow the lid on her mothers secret to get back at her for leaving her behind. Olga (Nicoletta’s mother) has gotten re married but her husband is against divorcees and women with children so Olga has kept Nicoletta a secret and left her behind to get on with her life. Nicoletta finally has enough of her mothers disregard for her and comes to Rome to the restaurant owed by her mother’s new husband. She is shocked to find that the entire staff of Casetta dell’Orso are older gentlemen with glasses. It turns out that Olga has a bit of a thing for this and the Husband decided to make this restaurant to honour his wife and how much he loves her. Nicoletta see’s how happy her mother is and feels she’s not really ready to blow the whole secret daughter thing so spends some time at the restaurant where she falls for one of the older gentlemen there. The series follows Nicoletta trying to work out if its love she’s feeling despite the age difference while decided to pursue her own career as a chef at the restaurant. The series gives us the back story of how the restaurant came to be, how all the staff ended up their and their various relationships. All in all it’s a simple and lovely tale of people, their relationships, friendships and of course falling in love.

07 Ghosts – super powered bishonen in uniforms fighting evil, what could be better.

Ok so yes this is an anime that I started watching because of the fan girl in me. Of course I wasn’t going to let it go unwatched there’s an entire cast of hot bishies one side is military (yay uniforms) the other is the church (yay flouncy robes).  I have to say I loved this series it was everything it needed to be, the men were hot, the action great, the story interesting, the scoring was good, the world was interesting and the slash was abundant.

07-ghost

The story revolves around Taito Klein, orphan slave recruited into the military but highly ostracised by the other recruits. He is training to become part of the next military cadets with the only friend willing to put aside their backgrounds for the sake of friendship. But alas Taito finds out that the general killed his father and he is the heir to a kingdom that this militaries country destroyed. Taito goes a little crazy attacks the general and gets put into a cell. His best mate helps him escape and Taito manages to crash into a group of bishops and is rescued into sanctuary which is governed by the church and therefore the military cant come and take him back (pesky politics). So this is where our story really begins Taito of coarse has a secret hidden power, hidden memories he must recover, a sense of not knowing where he belongs, a lot of angst, a best friend he misses dearly, a new mentor and guardian in the form of a hot bishop that reads porn and is the centre of a government conspiracy. But this is not all, it turns out that this world is being invaded by demons trying to eat people’s souls and it’s the church that is fighting the evil spreading through the world. Taito is stuck in the middle of so many dilemmas, does he seek the truth behind the fall of his kingdom, does he seek revenge against the military that killed his father, does he join the church and help fight this evil or does he sit about and angst about how unfair his life is. In truth he goes through all of these in some way or the other. Most of the series concentrates on his journey to find his true path, his true destiny and coming to terms with who he is and where he belongs.

This really is just fun watching and did I mention how hot the characters are? You can’t fault a fun and interesting series. It’s not the most original but it does have a great mythology running through it. Gods ruled the earth, one though was a little evil and decided that he wanted to corrupt and play havoc with the world. Well he was sealed away and to make sure he can not be reborn 7 death gods (shinigamis) were sent to protect the seal and stop him from ever resurrecting, they are known as the 7 Ghosts. Each Shinigami represents a quality or emotion, they are the seven aspects that make up god and these Shinigami have been reincarnated into the world as humans. Their role is to stop the spread of evil, as too much evil and soul eating will cause the re birth of the big bad god. The other aspect of the mythology is that each soul before being born to humanity goes before god and tells him what 3 things they would like to achieve as humans on earth. When they are born they of course forget these three goals but when they achieve them their lives are complete and they can transcend and move onto heaven. I like the mythology the idea that you have set goals you yourself have set that you must achieve in life otherwise you can’t die and move onto the next life. It’s an interesting idea that is unique to this series.

The anime for 07 Ghosts is very much a prequel for bigger things to come. By the time you’ve finished it you realize that this series is only the beginning, that everything that has happened leads to Taito’s decision in the final episode and where Taito has to go from hear. All the characters play important roles and a few are set up leaving you thinking they will have more importance to play at a latter date. Therefore the series has one of those ending no endings and I hope to god that they make more or that the manga is further ahead as |I really want to know what happens next. Plus I am a yaoi fan girl and I love slash so I want to enjoy more beautiful “friendship” moments between characters.
