Animanga

Pandora Hearts is a short, 25-episode series based on a manga written an illustrated by Jun Mochizuki.  I really looked forward to watching this show after reading about its premise and seeing that it contained a lot of Alice in Wonderland imagery.  Despite its popularity, I found it to be severely lacking for several reasons.  Keep in mind that I have only watched the anime and am basing my review on such; I’m sure (or at least, greatly hope) that the manga is much, much better.  Watch out for spoilers below!

Noragami is a very short anime series consisting of only 12 episodes and 2 OVAs (manga ongoing).  I started watching this series at Sunite’s (@ Daily Anime Art) recommendation and was instantaneously hooked.  I rarely come across anime shows where I’m instantly impressed from the first episode, so this was definitely a welcomed surprised.

An anime show that I have been itching to watch and write about is Kill la Kill, a 24-episode long series that follows the life of Ryuko Matoi as she strives to avenge the death of her father.  Been done to death, you say?  Well let me tell you something buddy, it’s never been done with fashion and aliens.  The exaggerated forms of violence, crude displays of gore, and high levels of near nudity reminded me of Danganronpa, an anime I watched last year that followed the Battle Royale theme. But Honnouji Academy is not your typical kill-or-be-killed setting; no, its design is much more magnificent.  Now that I have finished watching all of the episodes, there are some things I want to talk about.  Watch out, spoilers ahead!

“If there is any show that can make you want to rip off all your clothes and run around in all your naked (and free) glory, this one is it!”

Hi guys! As you may have noticed, I’ve decided to merge all of my branch blogs into my main one for simplicity’s sake.  I have also decided to change up my layout again and started a “watch list” page to keep track of all the anime shows that I have watched, am currently watching, or am planning to watch.  I used to maintain a list like this on LJ, but unfortunately lost it after failing to back it up.  As a result, I had to start my list from scratch and it’s looking so short…I know I’m missing a ton of shows that I have watched.  Anyway, while compiling the list, I came across a short little anime that looked fairly interesting and well, here’s a spontaneous review!  Beware of SPOILERS underneath!
