Let’s Look:Fairy Tail 2nd Series Episode 29: Giving The Spirits Their Wishes!

Feel free to read the review but to be straight nothing major happens. You can skip it and go straight to next episode without missing much.

So this episode doesn’t have much stuff to work with so it’s going to be a kinda short.

So Lucy and Yukino along with Natsu and Happy go up the Hill of Stars to summon all 12 Celestial Spirits to thank them for closing the Eclispe Gate during the battle against the Dragons.

So Lucy and Yukino decide to summon each Spirit one by one to let them have any wish they want from them.

And that’s it! I could really end the review there and you’d be ready for the next episode.

However I respect you all too much for that and I’m listening to ‘See You at the Elementario’ by Brilliant Four(The Ending for Amagi Brilliant Park) so I’m in the mood for some extra stuff.

So I’m going to heroically count down my top favorite moments in this one. That counts as a review? Right?

Anyway coming in at number 10 is Libra!

Libra is the Spirit of the Scales and she belongs to Yukino. So what do you want Libra?

That’s it? You can see why it’s number 10…

So moving on number 9 is Aries!

Aries is the Spirit of the Ram and she belongs to Lucy. So what could she want?

Snapshot_7

She wants a tan? We’ve got tanning beds for this…

Snapshot_8

Too much dude…

Snapshot_9

Well at least she’s happy…

Coming around the park at number 8 is Taurus!

Taurus is the Spirit of the Bull and he belongs to Lucy. We all know he’s a S-Class pervert so what does he want?

Well he’s got good taste…and with that he heads home.

Around at number 7 is Cancer!

Cancer is the Spirit of the Crab and he also belongs to Lucy. So what could a hairdresser from the sea want?

Hmm so how it turn out?

Snapshot_17

Hahahaha but this reminds me of the Tarturus Arc when…I can’t tell you sorry. I’m not going to give spoilers for you anime only viewers.

At number 6 is Capricorn.

Capricorn is the Spirit of the Goat and he also belongs to Lucy. So let’s get it to it.

Snapshot_18

Snore

What?! What?! I’m awake! He just started reading and I just blacked out for a minute.

So now we’re getting down to the good ones.

Coming in at number 5 is Gemini.

Gemini are the twin Spirits of the …well the Twins and they along belong to Lucy. Love these guys.

Hahaha it hurts to laugh so much.

Coming in at number 4 is Sagittarius.

Yeah he belongs to Lucy too and he’s the Spirit of the Archer.

Oh god! It hurts! It hurts to laugh this much. Not only does Happy get a afro but it gets cut by an arrow!

Next up at number 3 is Leo.

He belongs to Lucy and he’s the Spirit of the Lion and leader of the Zodiac. He’s also a member of Fairy Tail but that’s another story.

So what do you want Loke?

Hmmm I completely agree! Soft soft, white hair, curvy figure! I’d go for her too!

Close to the number 1 is number 2 is Pisces.

They belong to Yukino and they are the Spirits of the Fish. So what do they want?

Ah the sweet irony! The fish eats the cat! Hahaha good one!

The great number one is Aquarius.

She belongs to Lucy and she’s the Spirit of the Water Bearer.

Aquarius isn’t my favorite because of the comedy but because of the bond that she has with Lucy.

Aquarius is the first Spirit that Lucy obtain after her mother died. And because of being rich, Lucy didn’t have any friends so Aquarius was the only companion she had.

So Lucy does a little play with Yukino to try and make Aquarius laugh. It doesn’t work…epically and she ends washing them out and Lucy gets hung on a branch on a cliffside.

Aquarius pulls her off and puts her under a blanket so she won’t get a cold. She has a flashback of Lucy when she was younger.

Now we all know that Aquarius is …not a friendly person but Lucy did love her and cherished playing with her.

As we can see through the flashback, Aquarius cares for her too.

This last part could actually work in the canon since it really enhances a certain part of the Tarturus arc when Lucy summons Aquarius.

I could tell what happens but why spoil you? All I have to say is that I really hope that Eri Kitamura and Aya Hirano can give it their all in that scene.

So the episode ends with Lucy and Aquarius sitting down and looking at the stars.

Snapshot_46

So it was a funny episode and the part with Aquarius was really nice. So I’ll give Fairy Tail 2nd Series Episode 29 a 7/10 for good feels and some good comedy.

Now things are serious! The filler arc is coming next week. I hope it’s good. Although I really wished that they adapted A Day with Asuka and 419 Days. But hey they’ll do it someday.

But next the next review,
Later Days

Sword Art Online Full Season Review

Say hello to probably the most watched anime during Summer and Autumn 2014. Now one thing I just hate is being late to the show with an anime. I just got into Sword Art Online. It’s totally awesome and I wish that I had been on the hype train back in 2012.

So why am I reviewing Sword Art online now?

Hype! The hype told me I ordered it of me! And I must obey the hype!

In the near future, a Virtual Reality Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (VRMMORPG) called Sword Art Online has been released where players can control their avatars through brain waves using technology called “NerveGear.” When players enter the game, they discover they cannot log out, as the game creator is holding them captive. To escape, players must beat the game by defeating each boss on all 100 floors; however, if they die in the game, they die in real life too. Their struggle for survival starts now…

Hmmm…sounds familiar. Reminds me of something from my chilhood…Oh .//Hack Sign!

And that’s a common misconception about Sword Art Online, that it’s a rip off of the .Hack series. Not actually. If you look it up on SAO wiki and Reki Kahaharu’s page, you’ll actually see that Sword Art Online started around the time that .Hack did.

See the author originally wanted to submit SAO for a Denki award but it was too long. So he started it up a web novel while he made the Accel World Series. As his name grew as an author he basically got the right to write and publish a really long book.

So while Sword Art Online may be similar to .Hack, it’s just a coincendence. Log Horizon however…

That’s a joke people…

Note: Log Horizon is actually on my list for anime to watch. I want to see what they do with the whole ‘trapped in a video game ‘ trope that SAO and .Hack didn’t do.

My Opinion
What’s not to like about this anime that was pretty much the leader of the Summer and Fall 2012 Seasons. It had a good premise with being trapped in a video game. Each episode had some great action. However the really good stuff wasn’t the action. It was the emotions between Kirito and Asuna. The Seiyuu in Japan and the voice actors in English really conveyed them falling in love really well. It’s definitely the anime you want to watch if you like your action to have those good moments of romance.

The Highlights

  • The Cast. Since I know so many people in this anime from both the Japanese and the English, I’ll just tell you about one from each.
  1. Coming in at around 5 feet tall, it’s Cherami Leigh as the English voice of Asuna. She’s one of Funimation’s ace voice actors and she’s had a insane amount of roles from Funimination. Now she’s trying her talents in LA and this is her first role. I think it’s safe to say she started off strong.
  2. From the Japanese and even shorter than Cherami, it’s Kanae Ito from Haganai! …I wish I had the internet to give more of a list about all the stuff they’ve been on.
  • The Plot. Like I said, the ‘trapped in the video game’ thing has been done before and it’s epically protected by nostalgia. So what do you do to make it interesting? If you die in the game, you die for real! That makes it more interesting!
  • The Final Arc of the Aincrad Arc
  • The Anime Finale

The Downsides

  • Kirito goes on God mode the second he goes into ALO because all the stuff from ALO is just SAO with a skin change. This makes him insanely powerful, easily able to wreck players that have been playing for a lot longer than he had been. Thank goodness that after this arc, he resets his stats back to normal so he can play for fun. He’s still insanely strong because of his experience in SAO but at least he’s at a semi level playing field.
  • Asuna going all damsel in distress in ALO. Granted I understand it. Sugou locked in her in a room at the top of the world tree, she didn’t have the ability to use any of the game’s skills, and she couldn’t even see the key panel to get out. I understand all of this but still I want Asuna to be the legendary Flash she was back in SAO.
  • Suguha being Kirito’s cousin instead of his sister. Now this is something that legit came out of left field. They look so much alike. But now it goes for the ‘it’s not quite incest’ line which I personally believe only needs to be in wincest anime and harems that go that way.

Despite that I really like this one. The one thing I wish I could say right now is that you can check out the Light Novel if you want to know more but I can’t. The biggest website for Light Novel, Baka-Tsuki, took Sword Art Online of their site and app. Mostly because it was the smart move. Sword Art Online was picked up by Yen Press so they did it so they won’t get hit with a C&D. So the only way to get a look at SAO is to watch the anime or to buy it from Yen Press.

So now that I’ve given you your veggies it’s time to get to the meat. So there’s 9 arcs in this anime in my opinion. They are the Introduction Arc(Episode 1 & 2), The Red Nosed Reindeer Arc(Episode 3), The Black Swordsman Arc(Episode 4), A Murder Case in the Area Arc(Episodes 5 & 6), Warmth of the Heart Arc(Episode 7), the Falling in Love Arc(Episodes 8-10), Morning Dew Girl Arc(Episodes 11-12), The 75th Floor Boss Arc(Episodes 13-14), and the Fairy Dance Arc(Episodes 15-25)

Side Note: I love games like SAO(more sword and sorcery MMO games) so I’ll be using terms. I’ll try to explain some of the terms in the review

The Introduction Arc

So this arc of course introduces Kirito(voiced by Yoshitisugu Matsuoka). Kirito is a former beta player of the beta of Sword Art Online. He logs into the full version of Sword Art Online using the newly made Nerve Gear system where he meets up with Klein, a new player. Kirito teaches him how to play the game. After playing for a while, Klein tries to log only to realize that there is no log out button. All the players are teleported to the Town of Beginning where they are told by Akihiko Kayaba, the game creator, that the log out option was intentionally taken out. And once your HP hits zero, you die for real. As the first episode ends it is said that 2000 players died in the first month.

As the second episode begins, a strategy meeting is held to discuss how to defeat the first floor boss. Kirito ends up meeting a man named Agil as well as a girl named Asuna. A mass party is formed to face the first boss. The boss is defeated but Kirito is accused of being a beater(a beta tester and cheater). Kirito takes on all of the hate for all the other beta testers as he dons the Coat of Midnight and leaves for the second floor.

The Red Nosed Reindeer Arc

So a few weeks later, after saving a guild(organized group of players that regularly play together) called Moonlight Black Cats Kirito is asked to join them which he accepts. He’s really happy. Imagine it. You’re in a game where your life is very much on the line. It’s good to band together with people that you can trust. Plus guilds are very much a major part of any MMO game.

Kirito joins the guild but he hides the fact that his level is nearly twice as high as theirs. Note:They’re on the second floor so there’s roughly about level 20 so Kirito’s at least 40 or higher. Wow.

Anyway, Kirito truly bonds with his new guild particularly one member named Sachi who confides in him that she’s very afraid to die. So that means she’s going to live right? Wrong! She and the guild die in the most gruesomely horrible way possible…so of course I’ll have pictures detailing their deaths in detail. 🙂

The only one that manages to survive was Kirito who tells their guild leader about his fallen friends. He commits suicide by jumping off the edge of Aincrad…while Kirito watches.

Six months pass and Kirito goes to a certain fir tree on the first Christmas Eve in the game on a rumor that it would drop an item that resurrect a fallen player. Kirito kills the boss by himself and it does drop the resurrection item but it only works up to 10 seconds after death. By this time, Sachi’s been dead for half a year. Kirito goes into a deep depression which isn’t helped out by getting a pre-sent gift from Sachi. She explains how she knows that he was higher leveled than them and not to blame himself for her death. The arc ends with Kirito crying as Sachi hums Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer.

It’s been outright confirmed by the author that Sachi was Kirito’s first love and the death of the guild is something that haunts Kirito for years.

The Black Swordsman Arc

We see the young Beast Tamer, Silica, about to get killed by some Drunken Apes after her pet Pina has been killed. However our man Kirito comes through and saves her. After explaining that Pina can be revived by going to the 47th floor, Kirito loans Silica some equipment to help her get up there. As they walk Kirito reveals that the reason he’s helping Silica out is because she reminds him of his sister.

Hahahaha oh god. It hurts.

Kirito’s sister is Suguha. And for being around the youngest character in this anime, she’s got the biggest boobs! And Silica…got the smallest. Hahaha the comedy!

Anyway after getting the flower and a unfortunate panty shot by Silica, they get ambushed by the orange guild Titan’s Hand. They try to kill Kirito but they fail epically. Kirito captures them and promises to meet with Silica in the real world.

A Murder Case in the Area Arc

Another timeskip later, Kirito’s napping on a hillside until Asuna comes to wake him up and scolds him for wasting time while all the other front liners were clearing the Labyrinth. Kirito manages to convince her to relax and soon she falls asleep. After she wakes up she gets angry that Kirito let her fall asleep but thanks him for protecting her from any orange or red players.

While they have dinner, they witness a new unknown PK method that lets someone PK within a safe zone. As Kirito and Asuna investigate how something like this could happen they meet Yolko who leads them to the creator of the weapon that killed her friend. However it is later revealed to be a ruse by Yolko to discover who truly killed their former guildmaster. Turns out it was her husband. He hated the fact that his wife rose to the challenges of SAO and changed from being the soft spoken housewife to someone with a spine. Now that’s just sick.

Warmth of the Heart Arc

There are a lot of timeskips in this anime. So I guess a few weeks later, Kirito goes to Lisbeth’s Smith Shop to get a new sword made. However good old Kirito breaks her best sword so he takes her on a quest to find the raw materials to make a new sword…unfortunately they fall into a pit. As night comes around, they fall asleep holding hands. The next day, Kirito manages to get the Crystallite Ingot so Lisbeth can make the sword Dark Repulser.

The Falling in Love Arc

After two years in the game, Kirito on the front lines finds a Ragout Rabbit and gives it to Asuna to cook. They have a nice little dinner before Asuna asks(read threatens) to join her party. The next day they go out on a mapping mission and end up finding the 74th floor’s boss. They also meet up with Klein and his guild. However soon after they meet up with the Aincrad Libreration Army who like some idiots challenge the boss tired. They end up getting wrecked until Kirito, Asuna, and Klein run in to help.

However the boss, the Gleam Eyes, is too tough so Kirito busts out his Secret Skill, Dual Blades and defeats the Gleam Eyes. After the battle against the boss, Asuna requests leave from the guild but in order to get it Kirito must defeat the guildmaster, Heathcliff, in a duel…he doesn’t. So Kirito’s forced to join the Knights of Blood and is sent on a training mission with a guy named Kuradeel and Godfree. Then Kuradeel kills Godfree and nearly kills Kirito if not for Asuna. After Kirito kills Kuradeel, he says that he’s in love with Asuna and they both get married and take leave on the 22nd floor.

The Morning Dew Girl Arc

Personally one of my favorite arcs. After arriving on the 22nd floor for their honeymoon Kirito and Asuna find a young girl named Yui. She doesn’t have a icon over her head meaning she’s not a player, an NPC, or a monster. Despite this, they take her home. Once they question her and eventually go to the the Town of Beginnings to find her parents. Instead they find some members of the Army harassing some children and their caretaker. Asuna scares them away before they find Yulier, the second command of the Army. She asks them to help her reach their leader and her lover, Thinker. However Yui comes along with them. The party ends up getting attacked by a boss from the 90th floor called the Fatal Scythe. The Fatal Scythe tries to attack Yui but it turns out that she’s an Immortal Object and AI. Despite this realization, Asuna and Kirito still love and accept her as their daughter. However Yui is deleted by the system for interfering in the game. But not before Kirito is able to convert Yui’s data into an item named Yui’s Heart, swearing to find a way to restore her.

The 75th Floor Boss Arc

During the last few days of their honeymoon after the pretty much death of Yui, Kirito and Asuna are called back to the front lines by Heathcliff. The boss for the 75th floor has been found. There’s no information since every scouting party has been unable to return. So a big raid party is formed to face the 75th Floor Boss, the Skull Reaper and nearly half the party is killed off by it. After the battle, Kirito decides to test a theory and stabs Heathcliff. Turns out that Heathcliff is actually Kayaba Akihiko. He offers Kirito a chance to save all the players if he can beat him right then. Kirito manages to win but at the cost of Asuna’s life. All the players are freed from SAO and Kirito and Asuna are released as well. As Kirito wakes up in the hospital after two years in SAO the first thing he does is go search for Asuna. Aww.

Fairy Dance Arc

Two months after the end of SAO, Asuna has yet to wake. So following some information from Agil, Kirito dives into Alfheim Online. He meets with Leafa who assists him in heading to the World Tree where Asuna assumed to be. After a few battles and managing to save the leaders of Sylph and the Cait Sith, Kirito manages to make it to save Asuna from Sugou. And with that SAO is over.

So a few comments and some stuff I thought about.

So in Sword Art Online(the game) there is an Ethic Code which prevents “unwanted physical advances” like a stolen kiss or …something more forceful and it sends the person doing it flying. And typically they’ll be sealed up in the Black Iron Prison, The Aincrad Libreration’s Army’s Jail.

However there is taking such things by force. For example, all you need to basically advantage of someone is pull out a sword and put it to someone’s neck and “Turn off the Ethic Code or die,” and …you can basically do what you want.

I assume the same Ethics Code exists in ALO and GGO as well but hey the threat isn’t as bad there….

I need something more postive to end the review with! I just talked about assault! Hmmm…

Oh after the ALO arc ended, ALO was shut down but after Kirito releases the World Seed and a new company called Ymir buys all of ALO’s data from their old company. This along with the release of the World Seed revives the VMMORG genre after the horrors of SAO and ALO incidents.

Also when Ymir took over ALO they found a full copy of the Aincrad Castle on the company’s mainframe. So with a little kick up to the difficulty, the Aincrad Castle became the new Grand Quest of Alfheim Online.

They also added in the original Sword Skills from SAO but took out ten skills out of the ability roster. It’s been speculated by fans that these are the 10 Unique Skills like Kirito’s Dual Blades and Heathcliff’s Holy Sword.

So that’s a better end than the other one.

So I give Sword Art Online a 9.5/10 for good plot, great voice acting, and excellent art. However it loses that last half point because Asuna got nerfed in ALO.

So with that it’s the end of this months’s Full Season Review.

So as you know from my Rio: Rainbow Gate Full Season Review, the next one on my list for November will be my favorite Funimation anime, Suzuka!

Asahina.Suzuka.full.1010220

Now I’m going to do something special for December. Double Full Season Review! Why? Mostly because I felt that December had two types of feelings in it. The more energetic first part and the more lazy and relaxing second part around Christmas.

So during the first 15 days of December you’ll be getting a Full Series Review on one of my Favorite Light Novel Adapdations, Haganai and Haganai Next!

haganai_kk0

So until the next Full Season Review,

Later Days

You can ask me as many questions as you want on ?Ask.fm? and you can follow me on?Twitter?to know when my new reviews are coming out. You’ll know when stuff comes out right when it does! 🙂

Also check out my main blog on AnimeThief?where you can find a whole lot of Speculations, Anime News, Date A Live and Love Live up the wazoo and whole lot of other stuff. What are you waiting for? Check out the stuff that isn’t on here? But always come back here. My heart’s on both blogs. 🙂

First Impressions: Trinity Seven

This time it’s a double for the Autumn Season. Give it up for Trinity Seven!

Everyday is a normal day in the small town where Kasuga Arata lives; however, everything changed on the day of the Black Sun, and following it, a magician appears before him. The Black Sun caused the Breakdown Phenomenon which destroyed the town where he lives. Because of this, his normal life was artificially reconstructed by a Grimoire that his childhood friend had left. Just what is the purpose of the magician coming to the town? What will he do with the Grimoire’s keepsake?

 

Now this little gem is unique one in two ways. First it’s going to be my first anime on my side list. Side Listed Animes are anime I’m going to be reviewing on the side…you can tell that from the name. I consider them like the sixth man in basketball except in this case if I drop an anime this one will take the spot. So for example this season if I drop Fate Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works or Shirobako(We all know that it’s more likely to be Shirobako. PA left a bad taste in all our mouths after Glasslip), I’ll post all the reviews I’ve done for Trinity Seven at once and continue on with Trinity Seven.

Now the other piece of news, I’m working with Skycorps as a writer on Animewithsky.wordpress.com! Currently this season I’ll be doing reviews for Fairy Tail the 2nd Series and this anime here, Trinity Seven. Things are pretty much going to remain the same. I’ll just basically be double posting my Fairy Tail and Trinity Seven reviews.

So now that’s out of the way let’s get down to the good stuff.

Anime News Network calls this little gem a ‘romantic comedy but sometimes serious magical school story’. That’s got me in right there. Mostly because it reminds me of Sora no Otoshimono minus the magical school part.

Anyway I’ve got good and bad visions for this one. It could go good like Sora no Otoshimono with the fanservice and comedy being funny and the action being awesome. Or it could be like every failed harem anime out there, too much fanservice and plot murdered and left on the side of the road. No pressure though. 🙂

The cast is pretty good.

Yoshitsugu Matsuoka from SAO II will be the lead, Arata Kasuga.(ironic since SAO II will still be airing when this premieres so he’ll be competing against himself.).

Ayaka Suwa from Akuma no Riddle will have a part. She needs to get some points back with me after Jinsei…

And Aya Uchida from Love Live School Idol Project will be here! Big love for Kotori-chan.

Also Ryoka Yuzuki from Naruto Shippuden will have part! Hmm…Mind Transfer Jutsu. That’s right Ino Yamanaka! Love her!

I think we’ve got something good. Unless the studio screws up. Still no pressure.

Until the first episode,

Date A Live Speculation #3

Spirits. Mysterious girls appearing from another world. To fight against their pure strength with weapons, or to address them with love. Now mankind must choose.

date_a_live_tlc___last___by_tammypain-d68c006

Inner Writer: Hey Deven you haven’t done a Speculation in awhile. What’s up?

Me: Life! I don’t have time.

Inner Writer: Come on! Do a Date A Live Speculation. You can do it about the Astral Dresses. Come on you know you want to.

Me: Fine.

Warning: Religion will be talked about during this post. It’s part of the series and I won’t get on a soapbox and talk about that type of stuff. We’re here to have fun and love our fandom. That’s it.

Hey everyone. It’s Deven once again and I’m coming at you with another Date A Live Speculation Post. I feel like I’ve been slacking on the Date A Live stuff especially after the How To Be An Anime Blogger Post where I said I want to be the expert on Date A Live. So I’m coming back to you with something awesome. Astral Dresses!

Astral Dresses or Spirit Armor is the Spirit’s clothing created by their power. Spirits can change it into whatever shape, color, style, or appearance they want. They seem to be very durable, sustaining both the AST attacks as well as DEM’s Realizer’s attacks.

Now in Japanese the kanji used in light novel to spell Astral Dress means God’s Authority while the other half means Spirit’s Rainment. So Astral Dress is basically Spiritual Rainment of God’s Authority.

Also all of the Astral Dresses used are divine names of God representing each Sephirah in the Kabbalah Tree. See this tree keeps coming up. Remember that tree in the 2nd season opening, I think that might be it.  I can’t be sure but just guessing.

She’s the first girl so she goes first!

250px-Chara1_0Tohka’s Astral Dress is called Adonai Melek which translated from Hebrew is ‘God is King’ This dress definitely works with Tohka’s theme of being a knightly princess.

Hop, hop, hop! Bunny girl Yoshino’s next!

250px-YoshinooYoshino’s Astral Dress is known as El which means simply God in Hebrew. However the names of The Divine One and Almighty One can be inferred from this name. I can’t say anything about this one without getting smited it so I’ll move on. . .

Ah my beloved Kurumi!
250px-Chara4_0Kurumi’s Astral Dress is called Elohim which like Yoshino’s simply means God. Also like Yoshino I can’t say anything without offending someone. Granted I somewhat enjoy offending people. I won’t do it with religion though.

Our Little Commander!
250px-Kotori2Kotori’s ‘s Astral Dress is known as Elohim Gibor which means God of Battles. This is one I can talk about. You can see this while Kotori fights against Kurumi as her Spirit Powers take over. She really starts to enjoy it and that fits in with a lot of war gods over a large amount of mythologies.

Twins with the same clothes name!

The Yamai Twins share an Astral Dress name which is called Elohim Tzabaoth which means God of Hosts.  Now if you don’t know Host in this context means multiple powerful people. In the case of these names, it means Angels. Now the Yamai twins are two people which is multiple people and they’re powerful. I’d probably rank them as a unit stronger than Yoshino and Natsumi but weaker than Miku and Kotori.

Note: Just so you know what I think of the rankings in the Spirit Power here’s what I think.

1.Kurumi
2.Origami=Tohka
3.Kotori
4.Miku
5.Kaguya and Yuzuru
6.Yoshino=Natsumi

Relax. I’ll have a post . . .soon about why I think this. Back to the post.

She’s cute. She can sing and most important she’s voiced by Minori Chihara! You all know I had to say that right. I love Minori Chihara!

250px-Miku_spirit_verMiku’s ‘s Astral Dress is known as Shaddai El Chai which means Almighty Living God. I guess you can swing it as Miku was dead not only to herself but others when she lost her voice and became a Spirit. However she returned when Shido showed that he cared for her. As for the Almighty part, she ain’t all Almighty but she’s pretty darn strong.

Bubble, Bubble, Toil and Trouble. I need a cute witch on the double!

251px-Sqsd1551297538_n Natsumi’s Astral Dress is called YHVH Tzabaoth which means Lord of the Hosts.  Not only can I not think of one but it has a holy name unto God in it. I can’t touch it.

Note: I use YHVH because I don’t want to offend the Jews. They don’t speak this name aloud and I don’t think they even write it.

She may look like an angel but definitely a fallen.

300px-MetatronOrigami’s Astral Dress is simply called Ehyeh Ašer Ehyeh or otherwise known as I Am that I Am. Now this is something I can work with. Unfortunately I’ll give you spoilers for Volume 10 but hey nothing you weren’t going to see in the anime or the movie. So in the tenth volume after becoming a Spirit Origami swears to kill all Spirits and then commit suicide. When Tohka confronts her with the fact that she is a Spirit too, she says that she will reject all Spirits including herself.  Whether human or a Spirit, Origami accepted who she was and never fought it.  She is who she is regardless of what others think.

That’s it for now. I know it wasn’t a lot because of all the religious hang ups but once I do my Speculation on the Spirit’s Angels(which will come out some time in the future.) I’ll be more free to do as I want.

Until the next Speculation
Later days

You can ask me as many questions as you want on Ask.fm and you can follow me on Twitter to know when my new reviews are coming out. You’ll also be update on what’s happening.

Glasslip Dropped!

Yeah I’m dropping Glasslip. I thought that PA Works was on to something with this but then they ended up screwing up a good thing. How? They did nothing with it! They had a cast of teenagers on their last year of high school in their final summer and what do they do with it? They don’t use any of the possible drama they could be doing!

They also jumped into the dating parts too early. It’s the second or the third episode and Yukinari’s already confessing to Touko. It’s so dumb. I’m not going to care if this dude is confessing to this girl if you haven’t built up anything to make me care about either of them.

Also the main guy, Kakeru Okikura, is a bastard with a massive addition of jackass anti-social. It’s like the guy doesn’t know how to talk to people. He’s just too cold and off putting for everything.

So that’s just a few of the reasons why I don’t like Glasslip and that’s why I’m dropping with no chance of it ever having a Full Review. PA Works did what a lot of people feared. Awesome art but horrible plot. If I wanted a snorefest episodic, I’d watch an American cartoon.

Granted the character designs and the environment are really good though. Yanagi is definitely the hottest girl on the anime but it isn’t going to save it. Despite that I’ll leave you with some pictures.

Here you go!

And with that Glasslip is officially dropped. Now since my side list isn’t up yet, this season I’ll only be reviewing Rail Wars and Fairy Tail 2nd Series. However in the fall season, the Side List will be up and I’ll have anime on there for it.

You can ask me as many questions as you want on Ask.fm and you can follow me on Twitter to know when my new reviews are coming out. You’ll also be update on what’s happening.

Studio Ghibli Quiting Film Biz?

Studio Ghibli Quiting Film Biz?

There is a new Ghibli film coming out this summer and according to a report, it could be the last one.

Now Studio Ghibli is known for awesome hits like My Neighbor Totoro, Grave of the Fireflies, The Cat Returns, Spirited Away, and my favorite, Kiki’s Delivery Service.

The main reason why Kiki’s Delivery Service is my favorite is because well . . .I had a crush on her when I was little. I used to rent the VHS tape all the time to see it.

Anyway . . .

Last year,the well known creator of some of Ghibli best works and a man so awesome that Toonami used to name an entire month in his honor for his movies, Miyazaki Hayao, retired from making feature animated films. Why? No idea.

An insider told Japanese site, News Cafe that Studio Ghibli’s latest release, When Marnie Was There might be their last work. The article was later posted on one of Japan’s largest web portals, Rakuten. Even though its all over the Internet, it’s like Sinnoh Confirmed. We think it’s going to happen but we have no proof.

“From here on, it appears as though this won’t be a studio that makes new works, but instead, manages its copyrights.” according to one unnamed insider.

If you don’t already got them, you can buy all the major Studio Ghibli works right here.

Note: HTML is freaking hard! You have no idea how difficult it was to learn this crap in a hour! I wish I could put up the pics of all the movies but this was as far as I got.

It seems like Studio Ghibli calling it quits. Pity. They’re one of the best studios out there for making movies. I hope that When Marnie Was There ends the studio on a good note

So until more news,
