Dagashi Kashi First Impressions Jan18

Dagashi Kashi First Impressions

  Hello everyone. Yes, it had been a long time since I post any review on…well, anything. I must admit that the last anime season was not appealing to me. I might have missed something great but to be honest with you, I was just on burnout mode. I am still on that mode but I was just so bored today that I just picked up an anime series from this current season. I chose Dagashi Kashi. Shikada Kokonotsu’s father owns a rural sweets shop, and his plan is for Kokonotsu to take it over one day. However, Kokonotsu wants to be a manga author instead! One day in summer, the cute but weird girl Shidare Hotaru, from the famous sweets company, comes to pay a visit. Apparently, Kokonotsu’s father is famous and she wants him to join her family’s company. However, he will only agree if she can convince Kokonotsu to take over the family business! Source: Mangahelpers via MAL   Source   Dagashi Kashi is an odd series.  The main reason why I chose this title is the character designs, especially for Shidare Hotaru.  I really like her design a lot. I watched the first two episodes and there were some nice scenes where I laughed a lot, specially the anime references. It was great. There is some romance interest coming from one of the female characters, Endou Saya. Her design reminds me of someone from Bleach.     I thought her introduction was nice, especially when She heard that her love interest met someone cute. The series itself is like a big ad for a candies and sweets, hence the name of the series. I would not be surprised who is sponsoring this series anyway. It is interesting because We know Japan is famous for their candy and the wide variety They sell. Unfortunately, there are so many candy I will never be able to taste because I never saw them here where I live. This series is a showroom of what Japan can offer on this matter.     I would really love to see some character development and not just a show about candy. I think the one thing I want to see is there going to be any romance for the characters, particularly a love triangle between the main three (Hotaru, Saya and Kokonotsu). The show is just starting and for what I saw, it looks promising.

Utawarerumono – Itsuwari no Kamen 06 – Review Nov08

Utawarerumono – Itsuwari no Kamen 06 – Review...

  Utawarerumono – Itsuwari no Kamen 06 was so good I had to blog it. I must admit that episodes 2-5 were just plain boring. I mean, everything in this series goes so slow that I just got lazy. But, then, We get this. A true confirmation that this is really the sequel to Utawarerumono. We got Karura, We got Touka… and We got some cameos from the rest of the girls from Hakuoro´s harem. One thing that remains in total mystery is the identity of Kuon´s real mother. I wonder if Eruru is the one. There were many things I like from this episode like the fact that Karura and Touka see on Haku, some similarities with their previous “Master”. We also got a sake competition between Haku and Karura. I knew exactly who was going to win anyway but it was great to see the results. Finally, I just hope Karura and Touka roles are not reduce only to “cameos”.

Prison School Live Action First Impressions Oct29

Prison School Live Action First Impressions

  I am not sure how to begin to explain my impressions about this. It is hard. It is really hard. I am not a big fan of anime being adapted for live action but then, this is Prison School We are talking about. We will have to wait for a second season on the anime version but We can always read the manga OR watch this. Seriously, I must be really desperate…or maybe I just want to laugh and have a good time…right?     Now, what´s the point watching this if it is the same thing as the manga and the anime? Well, if you ask me, I am watching this because I want to see how the live action staff plays the part and also how they look and compare them with their anime counterparts. Check the screenshots and tell me what do you think?     I must say I am impressed with Hana and Chiyo. They look pretty close with their anime versions. The president and vice president are so and so.  The men, well, They sure looks a little bit exaggerated but I think this is intentional.  For the story, well, it is pretty much the same, but don’t let that fool you as there are some minor differences. For example, There are CGI crows! Oh wow! I enjoyed the “cosplays”, some of the humor…and yes, there is some fanservice, Mild but at least, there were no black spots covering scenes.     For the acting…Well, don’t expect something like “Prison Break” and I did some “face-palming” while watching everyone playing their part. It was embarrassing. Gawd. Well, this is just the first episode so I can´t judge too early on this. If you really like Prison School, give this adaptation a chance and tell me what you think. I will just give it a shot and see what lies ahead. I want to see Hana doing her stuff. That could be the “one thing” that saves this show.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens 3rd Trailer Impressions Oct20

Star Wars: The Force Awakens 3rd Trailer Impressions...

  Let me tell you a little story about this trailer and my odyssey trying to watch this. I got news that this was going to be broadcasted at half time during the Monday Night Football. I have no cable at all. A friend called me and told me that He was watching the game, waiting for the trailer! I asked him if it was possible to record a video of it with his cellphone and send it to me via whatsapp! Talking about being impatient. Then, I found out that someone was doing a live broadcast via Youtube and He was ready to show the trailer to the world. Then, after I finished watching that, I got info that the official Star Wars website posted it online right after the live broadcast! Damn, That was an ODYSSEY!   16,614,575 million views in one day! Now that you know my little, funny story, lets go straight to my impressions. The trailer is the third one and possibly, the last one. We are just weeks away to experience this. This trailer is awesome. The trailer begins with some soothing music, then We get John Williams´ epic sound pieces everywhere. It just sets the mood and involves you in this universe. We see great battles with the X-wings and the Tie-Fighters…and of course, the Millennium Falcon! I just cant wait to see the dogfights and all the action. Lets not forget the light saber fights too. At the end of the trailer, We see the beginning of a fight between Kylo Ren and Finn. Just look at Finn´s face! Kylo Ren just look so badass here! Darn! Many people is asking, Where the hell is Luke? Not in the poster, Not in this trailer. However, I dont care about that, because I know that at the theater, everyone will clap the very moment He should appear. That must be something! One great thing about this trailer events are the fan reactions. Check out some of my favorite ones…     At the end, this movie will be epic (Yeah, I know…Too many times I say that word). I saw many of the fan reactions for this trailers and if the trailer does that, imagine what the movie will do. This should be good!

Fate Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works Sunny Day Oct12

Fate Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works Sunny Day

  After Fate Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works came to an end, I was hoping for a good end where Saber survives the war and joins Rin and Shirou, just like in the VN. It was a wish. Then suddenly Ufotable actually made it for the bluray. I know many might say that this is completely unnecessary but I think it is a cool thing that They are giving an alternative ending, one that can please many Saber fans.     However, my opinion is a mixed bag after watching this. Not complaining too much because I liked this. First, I thought it was impossible to save Saber because Rin exhausted her mana. Guess I was wrong.     I felt it was a little bit too short and also, the ending was just too wide open for the imagination. We might never see more adventures post holy grail war. At the end, this was made just for the fanservice. One thing is for sure…Rin loves sandwiches. Maybe She is going for the next level.
