Anime Update - Zero no Tsukaima F
This anime was a treat. This “series” was one of the most emotionally filled anime I have ever watched. I am so glad I found this series. It goes in my top 5 anime ever watched, if not my most favorite. This series focuses on the relationship between Saito and all the other girls. It also finds a way to bring in some great action. Enemies are defeated, new ones arise to fill the void. We see a lot more of the elves and even get to know a few of them. The series finale is one of the best yet. Overall, looking at all four “series,” I must say that It has been an emotional roller coaster. I loved every bit of this series and am hoping the next anime will be even better. If you love magic, fantasy, and romance, you will love Zero no Tsukaima!
Anime Update - Zero no Tsukaima: Princesse no Rondo
This is the third “series” of The Familiar of Zero anime. This time the focus is more on the existence of void and nature magic. Elves are introduced for the first time in this series. Saito becomes a Chevalier of Tristain, granting him the title of noble. The love triangle grows as more characters start to like Saito more than just a friend. Louise gets mad at Saito for things he has no control over, like always. A few new characters are introduced and a few old ones are brought back into the light. The ending to this series brought a few tears to my eyes. No spoilers here though, you’ll have to watch the anime to find out! The next review will be for Zero no Tsukaima F, the latest addition to the anime that came out in 2012. I will need to find it though, so be patient!
Anime Update - Zero no Tsukaima: Futatsuki no Kishi
This is the second “series” of The Familiar of Zero anime I reviewed last time. This focuses more on the war between Tristain and Albion. Saito and Louise start off in a more civil relationship, but it turns hostile rather quickly. As the war goes on people die and a few characters from the first make their last appearance. Emotions run high throughout the anime. I must say, it takes a lot to make me cry, and this anime brought tears to my eyes. This has to be one of the best anime I have seen in quite a while. I would definitely recommend this series to anybody! I am only half way through the series though, so keep an eye out for the other reviews.
Anime Update - The Familiar of Zero
In my research of this anime, I have come to learn that it is the first of four series based on the story. I will watch the other series and post updates as I finish those as well. This first “series” follows Saito, a familiar summoned by Louise. Louise is terrible at performing magic. As time goes on Saito finds many things unbearable in his new home. The concept of noble and peasant escape him. He doesn’t care about any of it. He just wants to go home. Kirche and the servant Siesta both start to fall in love with him right away. Louise sees Saito as a dog, or a servant, and treats him like dirt. As the series continues, she starts to see him as a person and perhaps something more. Saito discovers that he is a special familiar and has a few powers of his own. This anime is for the fantasy romantic. If you enjoy such things, you should definitely watch this anime.
My wireless router broke making watching anime and updating tumblr rather difficult. I have taken to leeching off the neighbor’s wifi. The router should be replaced within a week or two with some luck. Updates to this blog will become more problematic with me getting a job this summer. Please be patient as the updates become more sporadic over the next couple of months. I am currently watching The Familiar of Zero or Zero no Tsukaima. Be watchful as the review for that should be coming up shortly.
This is pretty neat looking!
Anime Update - B Gata H Kei
For part of yesterday and most of today, I have been watching an anime called B Gata H Kei. It is about a girl named Yamada trying to lose her virginity so she can have sex with 100 guys. She runs into Kosuda in a bookstore, who just happens to be a virgin as well, and decides that he will be the one to break her “seal” and send her down the path toward her goal. However, she has no idea how to approach guys and messes up repeatedly. Kosuda eventually becomes her friend and tries to start a relationship with her. Yamada starts to fall in love with Kosuda but won’t admit it to herself. Overall it is an anime about teen love with quite a bit of sexual themes thrown in. However, it is pretty good about keeping things PG-13. The only time when nudity is shown is the series finale. Even then, not much is shown. I would recommend this anime if you enjoy relationship based shows. This anime requires a more mature mind, so I would say this is for the 16+ age group. I will try to keep up with anime reviews as the summer goes on.
I am out of college for summer break. A job has been secured for me and I should start in the next few days. Since I’m home, I have started watching anime more seriously again. I have found an awesome anime called Nyan Koi. It is about a boy who is allergic to cats. He angers a cat spirit and must grant the requests of 100 cats or turn into one himself. However, the anime itself mostly follows the many possible relationships that the boy could have and never pursues. I am going to try and watch most of the anime on my list this summer. It could be awhile though, my list is quite long and it seems to continue growing. I hope I am able to keep my priorities straight this summer. Have a fun and save summer!
Cosplay Wednesday: Sergeant Calhoun & Fix-It Felix Jr
I’ve seen this image make the rounds since yesterday over on facbeook. Well, at least it has on my facebook! But it is so adorable I had to share it here too. Wreck-It Ralph was fantastic and Calhoun was probably my favorite character in the film. How could she not be? I love that no-nonsense, tough lady leader!
