Arashi no Yoru ni

May 21, 2008

This is really a very nice anime to watch, funny and touching. It is about how a goat and a wolf become the best of friends. The conversations are relatively easy to understand too. And I especially love the theme song (star) sany by Aiko. you must listen to it.

Code Geass R2- 01

April 11, 2008

The show starts in a year after Zero defeat and Zero is suppose to be dead. So, C.C is taking comment of the only member of Shisei ken and a few of the people left.

Back in school, Lelouch is chased by his teacher for skipping P.E lesson. He got into the chemistry lab and create a colour fog as a smoke screen and later used Rivalz as a substitute to escape.

After that, his brother, Rollo asked him if he is going collage. Lelouch answered by saying that he is tired of studying. He added on that if he is going to join the work forces, there would be noble up there controlling everything. Unknown to Lelouch, he is watched by a Britannia’s Secret Intelligence Agency.

He arrived at the tower babel with a chess set to challenge other people. He told Rollo that it is to look for greater challenge but actually, it is just to kill time. At the same time, Carares was set out to meet the Chinese Federation.

Inside, he bumped into a bunny-dressed kallen who accidently spill drinks over Lelouch. She apologized straight away and explain that she do that because she is an eleven and she did not had any power. Then, a gambler, King appeared and grabbed her by the hair to see her face. Lelouch then challenge him to a chess match and wins which then, King then accused of Lelouch of cheating.

When King’s man had held Lelouch down, an explosion had occurred. Kallen then uses the chance to kick king’s face and take care of his man. Then, in the confusion, she pull Lelouch away. Britannia’s Secret Intelligence Agency also starts their operation.

C.C appeared infront of Lelouch and claimed to be his ally and Lulouch’s enemy is Britannia. She said that they had made a contract and this cause Lulouch to walk towards her. When he got close to her, she got shot in the heart and starts following. Lulouch manages to catch her and was confused when one of the cockpit of the robot open and the leader of the intelligence appeared.

He review that Lelouch is the bait to lure out the remaining forces of the order and to lure out C.C. The man feels that he did not need to tell Lelouch anything more and tried to kill him. To everyone’s surprised, C.C got up and kissed Lulouch. This cause him to got the flash back from last time and his attitude and geass power, the power of king, back.

With his power back, he asked the man question, is power justice. If being powerless is a sin. And taking revenge is a sin. The man said that there is only death awaits a bait and in the end, Lelouch commanded them to die.

My comment: A wonderful episode. However, it started like season 1 that C.C got shot and the power of geass was given to Lelouch.

To Love Ru- 01

April 7, 2008

At first, LaLa was chase by her own people. At the start, it make it like some Sci-fi movie. Not a bad effect. Kinda like it.


The girl there is the one that our main lead like. He tried to confess to her at many times but…

….never got the letter to her.

The reason Rito like Haruna is because when everyone though that he is the one who destroy the bed of flower, Haruna choose to believe him.

So when he reached home, he took a bath and LaLa appear in the bathtub. Rito was shock and shouted out. His litter sister, MIkan heard his voice and rush to him, which he explained that there’s a naked women in the bath tub.

She then appear in his room explain that it was by chance that she appear in his bathtub. Because the bracelet she used chooses a random place to warp to. Then another invention appear which she used to create clothes. But when she transform, its like some hentai show. LOL.

In the end, the people who were chasing Lala appeared and told her not to run away from home anymore. She disagree and send out octopus vacuum cleaner and suck them all away, including Rito.

The next day, Rito who was going to school, met Haruna on the way. He tried to confess to her but Lala step infront of Haruna and Lala thought that Rito was confessing to her. She then suggest to get married with Rito.

~End~

My comment: Quite a funny episode. Not as much fan service as i expected it to have. Had slightly differ from manga which is good because I don’t want to see something that i had seen before. At least the show explained why Rito likes Haruna. Good start but think from now onwards there will be more and more of fans service. Gee, Fan service spoils shows.

On the way to school, Tomoya suggested to skip class and go to the beach. But Nagisa refuses. Then, Tomoya suggest to hold hands but was interrupted by Kyou who ask is they are going to kiss.

Kyou is cute huh? Back to the story, During lunch break, they are having their lunch at Drama club room. Tomoyo is also there. Then, they asked where is Tomoya. Nagisa explained that okazaki-san is at Sunohara’s room. This cause them to make a fuss that she is still calling him by his surname even though they are going out.

Nagisa, Tomoya and Mei works in the bread shop. She wanted to let Akio and Sanae had a day off so they can do what they like. Akio, of course, is off to play baseball with the kids. In the mean time, Mei said that inside the shop there is a cute girl, this cause a large group of people to go to the shop. Even Sanae’s bread is sold out. Akio said this infront of Sanae and tried to get off the hook by saying “Sanae, Suki da”.

The next day, Mei found Okazaki in Sunohara’s room again. She called Sunhara to get out and wanted to talk in private to Tomoya. She wanted to be the Cupid of love for him. And Tomoya thought that Mei likes Sunohara. But Mei corrected him and said that it was Tomoya she wanted to help.

Tomoya say that it is impossible to dislike her over such small matter. Tomoya, holding Nagisa hand, said if she wanted to go for a walk. She then say to Tomoya that they will stay together forever.

My comment: Another anime had ended. Though there is the Spring 2008 anime coming up. I will miss these ended anime. Well, if this could be a longer show, i think that this would be quite a nice show. Not bad to see how they scam other people.

Many anime had ended. Thats means there is a new season starting soon.

Soul Eater

Story: It’s about the student in a shinigami school who are trying to let their weapon become a death-scythe which is the highest level of weapon that is only fit to be used by a “Shinigami”. In order to obtain that, they had to collect 99 evil souls of human and 1 witch.

Comment: Seems interesting. Since it is a comedy action show. Somehow it gives me the feeling of bleach.

Nabari No Ou

On day, he was attack and he used his power to fend off the enemy. Hence, he had to enter the hidden world to become the king to survive.

Comment: Another action anime. To me, this seems like hero tales. It seems like Rei Kugimiya is the seiyuu for Rokujou Miharu.

Neo Angelique Abyss

Story: Angelique is going to attend the all girls school to become a doctor to help others. However, monster that drain life out of people starts to appear. Hence, she decided to dispel them with the help of others.

Comment: Seems like a romance show. Endo Aya is the seiyuu for Angelique.

Da Capo II S.S

Story: well, this is Da Capo 2 second season. Season one talks about Sakurai and Koko becoming a couple but in the end the break up. This is the second season to continue the unfinished story.

Comment: Why can’t they show everything at one go instead of breaking them up? Though I am not a fan of Da Capo but i think i will watch this show. Yumei is voiced by Yui Horie

XXX Holic Kei

Story: Yuuko is a witch who can grant people’s wishes. However, in return, they need to give up something precious. Watanuki, a person who is ‘tasty’ to the spirits by accident, came to her shop. She promise to get rid of the spirits that are following him. In return, he works for her.

My comment, I had been waiting for this show for sooooooo long. Finally it had come.

Kimikiss- Pure Rouge 24 (end)

March 24, 2008

This is kimikiss, so I thought I would show the picture of kisses.

Eriko and Kazuki. Expected huh?

Moe and Koichi. Another expected couple?

How about this? Anyone see this coming?

Kimikiss had ended. The plot was just a normal love story. I am quite surprise that how this could last for 24 episodes. The plot i think is good for short story. However, for a 24 episodes, it is a bit tiring to follow.

H2O~Footprints in the sand -12 (End)

March 23, 2008

I haven been following this series that tightly. But the moment that the show had ended. I went and watch it. Overall, i think this is a nice show that ended nicely but there is some part that I don’t understand.

The village chief had tried to kill Hayami but is stopped by Takuma. Then, Hotaru come by and told her granddad that she had already called the police and she would tell the truth to the police. Takuma had lock his memory and he only remember his childhood stuff. He went back to the apartment that he live with his mum before moving to the village with Hayami. Takuma thinks that Hayami is his mum.

When they move back to the city, Hayami constantly wrote back to Hotaru-tachi. On one incident, Takuma had a dream about Hayami and ask Hayami about it. One day, Takuma wanted to follow Hayami to the market. Near to the place where there is train coming, Hayami told Takuma that his real mum would not leave him behind. In the end, a small boy had drop the ball into the track and Hayami rush to save him. Takuma had a flash back that his mum did the same thing. Seriously, I thought this was the ending. But there is more.

In the end, they all grew up into adult. Hamaji still cross dress even when he is a father. It seems like Hotaru is the new village elder.

In the end, Otoha had make her appearance again. She is being reborn. He come to give Takuma a wish. And there the person appeared before him is none other than Hayami.

The show ended nicely. For the storyline i think that 12 episodes is enough for it. However, there is traps in the show. Especially Hamaji’s part.

Clannad-22(End)

March 22, 2008

Sad Nagisa. She thought that it was her fault that her parents gave up their dreams.

In the club room, they thought that Nagisa is feeling nervous.

Nagisa and Tomoya touring the school.

This looks like Chobits. Nagisa version~

The gang giving Nagisa some more encouragement.

Akio: Fullfill your dreams Nagisa

Couldn’t resist myself. Kyou still rocks. I would like a Kyou after. =.=

Celebration for the successful of the play. Button really can jump high.

Sunohara with the envy look. Well, he only dances with his little sister.

What a loving family.

Nagisa and Tomoyo on a date.

Nagisa’s expression is cute. ~_~

Back at you~

Shock by Tomoya’s confession.

Happy tears.

In this episode, Nagisa went to school without saying goodbye to her parents. In school, she kept thinking that it is her fault that her parent gave up their dreams. Sunohara sense something is wrong and tried to cheer her up. Tomoya and Nagisa decide to tour the school festival but got separated. In the end, Nagisa went to find Yukine and dug out some old video on drama plays.

Tomoya managed to find her and he tried to convince her that it is not her fault. When it was the drama club’s turn to perform, she stood in the stage and start crying. Then, Akio dash in and started shouting at Nagisa, telling her that the dream of the children is also the dream of the parent. They are happy baking bread everyday. Sanae and Tomoya also joined in. Tomoya told her to fullfill the dream that sunohara and he couldn’t.

Ending nicely and they held a celebration at Sunohara’s room. The next day, Tomoya and Nagisa went out playing. Then, they stopped by the school. Nagisa notice that she is on the cleaning duty and Tomoya admits that it was him who wrote it down. As a revenge, she wrote his name back on the blackboard. Then, Tomoya confessed to Nagisa and Nagisa was so happy that she cried.

Clannad had ended. I am sad. To me, this is too short. They did not animate the after story which i was hoping for. Hope that they would make one in the near future. Compared to Key’s previous animated visua novel, Kanon or Air, Clannad ended with a very weak ending. However, this is the funniest out of the three. Mostly thanks to Sunohara. The confession part was the same as the visual novel. Cool. There is still one more special episode next week. Seems like a wired episode to me.

The insert song is called 影二つ. It is still nice. It reminds me of the visual novel.

True Tears-11

March 17, 2008




Jun: Hey, since Hiromi don’t want me, how about we going out?

Nobuse: Sure, my Ai-chan also don’t want me anymore.

Aiko: Say, how about we share shin? I take Mon to Wed and you take Thur to Sat?

Hiromi: Sure thing. But what about Sunday?

-Crap-

Other screen shot:

Bad end. Tell you not to mess with Seikai or Kotonoha.

Noe….don’t jump.

Shin: You jump I jump!

In this week’s episode:
– Start off with Shin in Hiromi’s apartment.
– Went to the beach where Hiromi kissed Shin
– Shin kept thinking about Noe
– Aiko and Nobuse patch up
– Shin finished the picture book with a bad end.
– Horomi meet up with Jun and told him that she is not the one he likes.
– Jun called Hiromi late at night telling her that Noe had not gone home.
– Hiromi then tells Shin about it and he found her at the beach.

2 more episodes and the show ends. Seriously, would Shin choose Hiromi or Noe? I think Horomi stands a higher chance. In that way, Noe would get her tears back and end up with Jun? Interesting, seeing that the show can go either way. One think i would like to comment, this episodes is full of phone call.
