Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon

Seriously what is going on with this anime? I watched the first episode and I’m clueless. Basically everyone seems to have magical powers and, if that’s not enough, there are several weird characters that just don’t make sense.

A naked man with some sort of horns that retrieves the students who lost, some sort of gundam-type robot, a red talking blob of slimy stuff and later on that student president shows up with porn and fondles the teacher’s breasts. What the hell? Sure, it’s funny, but where do they plan on going with this?

I understand that it’s the very first episode, but they should’ve at least point out some sort of story. And they did it again, creating female characters with ridiculously large breasts. Good ‘ol Japan and their fascination with large breasts.

The anime looks pretty good, no major complaints there, but the story is what bugs me. I think it’ll just be another Manyuu Hiken-chou anime; fun to watch but not something you look forward to all week.

Plot Summary: Set in a distant land, Japan is divided into feudal territories, yet conquered by outside countries, the city Musashi that will ignite the flame of battle is being targeted and has no choice but to keep its people safe by entering this war, with the fate of the world resting on its hands, the students of Musashi may hold the key to victory.

R-15 episode 12

Finally got around to watching the final episode, I had a lot of other things to do and several other episodes to watch.

Takuto finally got around to writing lyrics for their upcoming show. Fukune was about to leave the school with her father when one of Tsukuru’s robot inventions came to fetch her. She looked pretty happy about it too, so that’s a good sign.

The time had finally come and Takuto and his classmates started to play their music.  Everyone was pretty much disgusted at it because of the pornographic lyrics, but in the end it turned out fine. Throughout the whole song I laughed like hell, the lyrics were pretty funny and the reactions really gave the finishing touch to their hilarious performance.  Fukune’s father was touched by how well his daughter suddenly played; he left, leaving Fukune in their hands, for now.

They ended up winning the contest and by doing so ending the anime. It was really funny at times, so for people who like to laugh; consider watching it!

R-15 episode 11

The new episode arrived and they finally showed the problems revolving around Takuto and Fukune-chan. I think Takuto’s problems are only just beginning though.

In the last episode you could see Fukune at her concert, but what people don’t know is that she suddenly stopped halfway. She just couldn’t do it anymore and thus, because of that, her father decided that school isn’t right for her. He wants his daughter to focus 100% on her music, without the interference from other people. Obviously the man sees his daughter as nothing more than a tool, a pretty little tool that plays nice tunes and makes money.

Fukune was broken and confused, she went back to school where she met up with Takuto, they both went back to Takuto’s room where she stayed for the night. The very next morning, after their horrible breakfast, she explained that she doesn’t like music, that she didn’t choose music and thus couldn’t possibly be a genius. She ran away after it go to emotional. Takuto later on obtained a newspaper with information about Fukune, about her dropping out and all. So he went to Kurumi to find out more. He met up with Ran for some information, but she was surprised to hear that Fukune went to Takuto instead of her.

Takuto doesn’t know what to do anymore. He can’t write, he can’t think and at one point he finds himself standing where he once listened to Fukune’s clarinet. He was about to give up when Raika shows up and shows him how truly ugly his behavior is. Takuto manned up, took control and went off to find Fukune.

The episode was good, but I’m having mixed feelings. The next episode will be the last, but I feel that there is so much more ground to cover. What about the relationship between him and Raika, Ran, Utae and Kurumi? I feel that the next episode is going to focus on the relationship between him and Fukune, and that it will end without explaining certain things about the other characters. I really hope the end will be better when compared to No.6’s end.

R-15 episode 10

Well… I wasn’t really planning on writing about this anime, because you just can’t take it seriously. But I found myself enjoying the last couple of episodes. So it wouldn’t hurt to write a little bit about it.

Takuto, the genius porno author, seems to be getting more and more popular with the ladies. He was hated by all at first, but now that he has made some friends, they actually start to like him. What I’ve gathered from all of this, is that Utae likes Takuto in a more special way, but he has more interest in Fukune and her music. Raika, just like Utae, has an abnormal amount of interest in Takuto as well. All of this became very clear in this episode, during the competition between classes.

But I think that this love polygon will come to an end very soon, as Takuto will have to pick sooner or later. Due to the amount of attention he gives Fukune, it’s highly likely that he’ll initially pick her. But we’ll see, there’s nothing on the table at this point.

Seirei no Moribito

Oh wow. I just finished watching this anime today and I have to say that it’s absolutely great! I watched this anime because a friend of mine recommended it. Which reminds me, I have to buy that bastard a six pack to express my gratitude, damn.

The story is very good, unique and exciting. It started out pretty good when that female spear wielder saved the prince, but the story just kept getting better and better. I watched the first ten episodes in a row because I just couldn’t stop watching. So I watched the remaining episodes within the next couple of days, at a steady and healthy pace, lol.

As for the artwork? No complaints. I was really fascinated at how they drew certain things, but I do feel that the “La Lunga” could’ve used a bit more imagination, they just look like mutant crabs.

All in all? A definite must-watch anime! It has it all; a great story, great artwork and the chemistry between characters is excellent. At the end (don’t worry, I won’t spoil the end) I actually cried a little bit, seriously.

Plot Summary: Balsa the spearwoman is a wandering warrior, who takes on the task of saving lives, in atonement for a past sin. On her journey, she happens to save a prince, and is tasked with becoming his bodyguard. And he is going to need one, for his own father, the emperor, wants him dead.

Balsa, the spear wielder and bodyguard, is visiting the New Yogo Empire. She is hired to protect the Second Prince, Chagum, who is endangered because he is possessed by a being despised by his father, the Emperor, who ordered his assasination. The two go on a perilous adventure for the survival of the prince. Throughout the story, Balsa’s past will come to light and they will uncover mysteries about Chagum’s condition while developing a family-like relationship with each other and others.
