Just how many anime shorts are there this season? A new one showed up today. It seems there are still one or two more on their way that we haven’t seen yet. What is the point of all those anime shorts? I am really curious…

KowabonThis one’s a bit different since they apparently created this show by using the rotoscoping method, which is, for as far as I can explain it, having a group of real actors and actresses play all scenes out in real life only so that the animators can then use that footage to recreate it as an animation. I’ll admit that it looks interesting.

The story, for as far as there is one, is not that great. It’s supposed to be scary but it’s not. It’s not at all scary. My little niece probably wouldn’t even find it scary.

I suppose it might be interesting to watch this just because of the way they’ve created this, but it certainly wouldn’t be for a nice scare. That probably won’t happen any time soon.

Plot Summary: There are cameras everywhere in the modern world, monitoring our lives 24/7. Those “eyes” have seen the world you do not know.

Gakkou Gurashi!

A lot of people are going nuts over this one. I do not see it. It seemed to me like another boring slice of life anime. It could be that it just had a rough start, but to me it seems like nothing special.

Gakkou Gurashi!The artwork is okay. The characters look alright, although I think the cat-girl look has been done to death. They gave Yuki a cat-girl hat and a cat-girl frown from time to time in order to draw out a few laughs. Meh…

The story eludes me. I cannot even remember where I got lost. I have been told that it’s more than just a slice of life anime where school girls go about their business. It’s supposedly about to become quite interesting…

I haven’t seen anything exciting yet. It looked like just another boring slice of life anime to me. Maybe the second episode will change my opinion…

Plot Summary: Four girls decide to stay over at school: the energetic Yuki Takeya, the shovel-loving Kurumi, the center of the group Yūri who brings everyone together, and the spacey school adviser Megu. However, through mysterious circumstances, the girls find themselves the final survivors in a zombie attack, and continue to live at the school.

Tokyo Ghoul √A episode 12

Well, I don’t think it would take a genius to see that there’s definitely another season coming in the (near) future.  And why not? The Tokyo Ghoul series have been a huge success in ratings and the first season has done quite well in sales as well.

[Ohys-Raws] Tokyo Ghoul A - 12 END (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_07.41_[2015.03.27_23.52.15]Now then; Ken has once again lost another friend. First it was the old man and now his best friend, Hide. I thought it was quite touching how that guy knew from the start that Ken had become a ghoul. He knew and he still helped Ken by taking him to safety after his fight against the almighty Amon-kun. Not only did he do that because he was his friend, he did it even though he was fatally wounded himself. He didn’t care about seeking medical attention, he just wanted to drag Ken to a quiet spot where his colleagues wouldn’t be able to find and kill him. Now that’s true friendship for you!

[Ohys-Raws] Tokyo Ghoul A - 12 END (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_18.57_[2015.03.27_23.52.39]And Touka? Yeah. She just almost everyone. She still has a few friends left on the planet, but the Anteiku staff have given their lives in the attempt to defend their beloved café.  It’s a damn shame that it burned down, but Touka already decided to continue its legacy if I saw correctly. Nice to see that the deaths of so many of her friends didn’t end up destroying her life.

As for Ken… Well… He took Hide’s body back to his colleagues. Probably so they can give him a proper burial. Was it a smart move? Not at all. He was standing against a guy that took on the real One-Eyed Owl on his own. How the hell is Ken supposed to beat someone like that when he couldn’t even deal with the ghoul that he helped save a few weeks ago? We’ll just have to wait till the next season I guess…

Parasyte episode 24

And so our happy ending finally arrives. Parasyte truly was a stroke of brilliance. This author isn’t all that known when compared to some of the others out there. He really did it big when he created Parasyte. This anime adaption is one to be remembered for sure.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 24 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.29_[2015.03.25_23.39.44]So things went back to normal or as normal as things get in a world where parasitic killing machines live amongst you. They adapted to the human way of life. They started eating the same food, doing work to earn money and they seemed to have learned to control themselves, which goes to show that a display of necessary force was all that was really needed to get them to back down. Well, that and the fact that Shinichi and Migi killed the strongest of them last week. I guess this means that humans are once again on top of the food chain in the world of Parasyte.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 24 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.51_[2015.03.25_23.40.14]Now then, I knew that insane killer would show up again at some point. I had no idea it was going to go down that way, but I am not entirely sure I disliked it. The only thing that I disliked is that I have no idea if he survived or not. I mean, a superhuman punch to the face from an emotional boyfriend trying to save his girlfriend sounds pretty damaging to me…

Nevertheless, humanity has won and Shinichi survived all of his trials and has started a new chapter in his life. He is going to finish school, work on his relationship and hope that one day he might be able to speak to Migi again. I’ll admit that I don’t see the value of Migi going to sleep for a long time, but it do think it’s a nice touch. Well done, Mr. Iwaaki (the author).

Tokyo Ghoul √A episode 11

I hate myself for saying this; but this post has to be kept short due to a gross shortage of time. That and I feel like I’m about to die. I think that nasty fever has returned or something because I feel absolutely terrible.

[Ohys-Raws] Tokyo Ghoul A - 11 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_17.11_[2015.03.19_23.13.28]Anyway, this long-awaited episode finally aired and I watched it with a smile on my face. I watched how the real One-eyed Owl tore apart the bastards that took down the old man. I don’t know if that really is that man’s daughter, seeing as she laughed quite a lot, but that ghoul definitely seemed to care enough to get really angry.

What about reckless Ken? Well, I guess he’s improving. He did not surrender to the madness within and maintained in control the entire time during his fight against Amon-chan. I just want to see how this’ll end. I don’t think he’s going to attack his old friend and I don’t think that One-eyed Owl is going to win somehow. Things are not looking well. I can’t wait to see what happens!
