Durarara!! (デュラララ!!)

Posted in Anime on July 6, 2010 by Yukari

I AM SO SORRY. I told a BUNCH of people that i would be moving blogs, BUT i just can’t leave this and copy and paste every SINGLE freakin post on this site… so just this site it is =)

Ahh… so much for wanting a new username….

Ok! Durarara, i finished it a while ago. Great art, Great story. I also liked the way how every character was related to every character in some way.

For eg: Izaya who is hated by Shizuo who is a good friend of Celty’s who’s head is being hidden by Izaya who is in charge of Saki who is Kida’s girlfriend who is Mikado’s best friend who is in love with Anri who is the Slasher who is a member of Dollars and thus knows Celty, Izaya and Mikado and all of them are being manipulated by Izaya.

I rest my case.

Summary:

Mikado Ryūgamine is a young man who longs for the exciting life of the big city. At the invitation of his childhood friend Masaomi, he transfers to a school in Ikebukuro, Tokyo.

Masaomi warns him about people he doesn’t want to cross in the city: a violent man dressed like a bartender, an information merchant, and a mysterious gang called “Dollars.” And to top it off, Mikado witnesses an urban legend on his first day in the city: the “Black Rider,” the supposedly headless driver of a black motorcycle.

The narrative follows all of the characters equally, showing how their lives intersect, creating a greater plotline from what each character knows about a common incident.

Posted in Anime on January 7, 2010 by Yukari

HI again == Since i have no life, i shall post this today. I must say this anime made me cry (T_T) IT WAS SADD especially the ending… but i still love it. It’s like Code Geass. Sad but great.

I don’t wanna beat around the bush so i shall start right away.

Summary

Genre: Dark Fantasy, action

Author: Katsura Hoshino

The manga is ongoing, but the anime stopped

Episodes : 103

D.Gray-man follows the adventures of 15-year-old Allen Walker, whose left arm can transform into a monstrous claw and destroy akuma, evolving machines created by the Millennium Earl to help him destroy humanity. As ordered by his master General Cross Marian, Allen becomes an Exorcist, people who can destroy akuma, for the Black Order, an organization attempting to stop the Earl. He becomes a powerful asset for the Order because he can detect disguised akuma with his left eye. Allen is sent to recover pieces of Innocence, a substance that gives certain people, called Exorcists, the ability to destroy akuma. The Earl decides to call together the Noah Family, superhuman descendants of Noah who can destroy Innocence. Both sides start the search for the Great Heart, the most powerful piece of Innocence that will assure victory to the side that finds it.

During his search, the Earl begins killing the Generals, the Order’s most powerful Exorcists. To protect them, the Order attempts to bring the Generals back to headquarters, and Allen and three other Exorcists are sent to search for the missing General Cross. During the search, Allen and Lenalee Lee are nearly killed and saved by their Innocence, leading the Earl and Bookman and his apprentice Lavi, who are chronicling the war, to believe one of them possesses the Great Heart. Meanwhile, the Order learns that the 14th, a Noah that betrayed and was killed by the Earl, implanted his memories into Allen. The memories will erode Allen away until he becomes the 14th. This leads the Order to believe that Allen may betray them.

ALLEN! I LOVE HIM! omg i am a big fan ^^ I love those kinds of guys who are bad yet try their hardest to be good to make up for it. omg and Timcanpy (?) is the greatest….uhh flying thing!

Lenalee. I like her power. It’s really pretty.

Kanda..CRAPPY ATTITUDE! OMG this guy pissed me off so much in the first few episodes. But he’s cool nonetheless. He’s good looking too ^^

I like his hammer XD He’s so cool. Lavi

P.S; YES i did change my blog name. That’s only cuz my mom found out that i was umm “releasing personal info” online. So now it’s Yukari..but i’m still me

Ok so lately if figured that i don’t blog often… but the reality is….. I HAVE TO STUDY T_T like seriously… I’m so behind on practically everything.

This draft has been here forever so i thought i’d finish it off today ^^

Summary

It translates to “Black Butler”

Author and Illustrator : Yana Toboso

Genre: Drama, supernatural, Black Comedy

Episodes: 24 (but the manga is ongoing… maybe there’ll be a second season)

In a manor house on the outskirts of Victorian era London, butler Sebastian Michaelis serves Ciel Phantomhive, the twelve-year-old head of an English noble family and a toy and candy empire, who serves directly under the Queen. Sebastian carries out any task required by his master while solving the problems plaguing England with ease and perfection, because of his demonic lineage and Faustian contract with his master.

Yes it actually is pretty funny. And the plot is straightforward…. Not many girls in there… just one i think… maybe two or three secondary characters. But guys are dominant.

This was fun to watch… i haven’t finished it yet.. (i have so many on my list ==) but i want to finish it… It’s a different plot altogether..

Sebastian… The “black butler” and i won’t spoil any farther than the fact that he’s  perfect at EVERYTHING (even fighting with forks)

Ciel Phantomhive… Sebastian’s master

GRELL ❤ he has to be my favorite character from the show

Ciel as a girl (I think he looks cute)

I just started this one. I’m currently watching a lot of series at once. They will be up soon enough. I had detention today =( I was never actually the type to get into trouble but…. oh well let’s just blame the teacher shall we?

Summary:

Author and Illustrator: Yuki Amemiya and Yukino Ichihara

Genre: Action, Fantasy, Supernatural

Episodes: 25 (Manga is ongoing, so i expect a second season ^^)

Teito Klein is a former slave sent to attend the Barsburg Empire’s military academy due to his ability to use Zaiphon, a type of supernatural power. The ability is rare, and thus highly prized. Teito is an amnesiac and doesn’t remember anything of his origins—what he does learn of his past comes from his recurring and often traumatizing dreams.

After a year at the academy, Teito takes the graduation exam; it is notoriously difficult, with a pass rate of one in twenty-five. Teito and his best (and only) friend, Mikage, pass easily. That night, in their shared dorm room, they each promise to help the other at any cost. The next day, Teito is delivering papers to a professor when he overhears his name. He stops to listen and realizes that the speaker, a man named Ayanami, is the man who killed his father in his dreams. Teito is found eavesdropping and tries to attack his father’s murderer, but is quickly brought down by one of Ayanami’s subordinates and sent to prison. Mikage comes to help him escape, only to find that Teito has managed to fight past the guards by himself. The two flee the building, but are cornered on a balcony. Teito pretends to hold Mikage hostage, threatening to kill him; and tries to escape when Ayanami sends a Zaiphon attack after him, which Teito manages to partly deflect. A Bishop in the nearby 7th District brings the injured Teito to the church to recuperate. Since Teito is still in chains, the Bishop, Frau, mistakes him for a slave and comments that if Teito had been a soldier in the Imperial army, he would have killed him immediately. Because of the law of “sanctuary”, Teito may stay in the church without fear of the Empire or Ayanami.

Teito carries the Eye of Mikhail, the powerful artifact that his home country, the Raggs Kingdom, was ransacked for. The tragic death of a loved one catapults him into his quest for revenge against the Barsburg Empire and knowledge about his past, while he becomes entangled with the Gods, Verloren, and the 7 Ghosts.

His best friend’s fate spurs Teito into trying to master the Bascule—a powerful weapon that can harness and focus his innate power. Friends become enemies and rivals become allies as Teito begins to fulfill his destiny, and protect his fallen country from the minions of his former masters.

There’s a lot of fantasy stuff which i can’t explain. You have to watch to actually find out!!!

Summary:

the manga is ongoing but Episodes: 26

Set in the modern age, the story is about Miharu Rokujou, who just wanted to live a normal life and inherit an Okonomiyaki restaurant. At the moment, his biggest problem was the constant pestering from Kouichi Aizawa and Durandal Thobari Kumohira, who started a Nindō (忍道?, lit. “Way of the Ninja“) Club. Miharu wanted nothing to do with “ninjas” and turns them down every time. But soon, he is attacked by an actual group of ninjas and is protected by Kouichi and Kumohira. There, Miharu learns of the hidden ninja world Nabari, the roles of his classmate and teacher in that world, and of the secret art Shinra Banshou (森羅万象 Shinrabanshō?, lit. “all things in nature”) within him. The secret art, containing all the world’s knowledge, is sorely coveted after in Nabari. And because of that, Miharu cannot return to his normal life. He must become the “Ruler of Nabari” to survive.

Chrno Crusade (クロノ クルセイド)

Posted in Anime on September 11, 2009 by Yukari

This show was the ultimate one for my friends. For me, I still have better ones than this that i like. Oh but im not saying i hated it. I LOVED it. I just loved…. some other anime more.

Summary:

Author: Daisuke Moriyama

Genre: Action-Adventure, Drama, Romance

Episodes: 24

Chrono Crusade is set in the height of the Roaring Twenties, where jazz is king, bootleg liquor flows freely, and the mob rules the streets. It is a time of prosperity, luxury and decadence, and the division between rich and poor grows even wider in the wake of the First World War. It is at such times of great change and upheaval that the dark things that lurk below the world of man can come to the surface. In the world of Chrono Crusade, a fictional organization known as the Order of Magdalene (or more specifically, the characters of Sister Rosette Christopher and her soul-bound demon partner, Chrono) exists to fight the demonic threats that appear with increasing regularity across America. Both Rosette and Chrono are revealed during the course of the story to be driven by a shadowy past, centered around a search for Rosette’s lost brother, Joshua. Joshua is shown to have been taken from her by the sinner, Aion, a devil who shares a dark and bloody history with Chrono, and seeks nothing less than to overthrow Heaven and Earth.

The anime follows the manga through the first half, but it diverges halfway through, creating different courses of events and endings. The characterization of some the characters, including Rosette and Aion, and their roles in the story were changed in the adaptation of the manga. Much of the story is driven by the individual pasts of the main characters and the complex relationships between them.

Chrono and Rosette in the Anime (Doesn’t chrono look a bit like Rei from Beyblade???)

Chrono in his kick-ass release form

The whole group.

Detective Conan (名探偵 コナン)

Posted in Anime on September 3, 2009 by Yukari

Known as Case Closed in the English dub and Meitantei Conan in the local Japan.

Summary:

Shinichi Kudo, a gifted 17-year-old high school detective who frequently works with the police, is attacked by two members of a mysterious crime syndicate while investigating a case of blackmail. He is forced to take a newly-developed drug that is supposed to kill him, but due to a rare side effect unknown to the two men, the drug transformed his body into that of a seven-year-old instead. In order to hide his identity and investigate the whereabouts of the syndicate, called the Black Organization, he adopts the pseudonym Conan Edogawa. To search for leads to the syndicate, he moves in with his childhood friend Mouri Ran whose father Mouri Kogoro is a private investigator. He also enrolls into Teitan elementary school and forms the Junior Detective League with three elementary school friends, Amy, Mitch and George. Even as Conan, Jimmy continues solving criminal cases, posing as Richard Moore with the help of special gadgets. Richard Moore, a rather inept detective, is bewildered at the sudden rise in his case-solving abilities, but does not question as he is more than glad about his subsequent rise in fame.

Later in the series, another main character, Haibara Ai, appears. A former member of the Black Organization, she is actually Shiho Miyano, a gifted chemist who worked on the poison APTX 4869 which turned Jimmy into a child. After her sister was brutally murdered by members of the Black Organization, she tried to escape and was held captive. She then attempted to commit suicide by taking a dose of APTX 4869, but instead transformed into a child as well and managed to escape the organization. She then enrolled into Conan’s school under the pseudonym Anita Hailey. Later on Conan and the FBI are able to capture Kir of the black organization. Kir revealed to be part of the CIA, promises to relay information about the Black Organization to the FBI. They return Kir to the organization. Later, she relays that the Black Organization has received a new member codenamed Bourbon..
