Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Review

Its not often that you watch a anime that really takes you on a major roller coaster ride, with major ups and a ton of twist.  I went into Higurashi not knowing much about the series other than that there was a visual novel of the same name, I had attempted to play the novel before but never got to it so I went into these series basically blind.

I was not sure what to expect from these series, extrinsically when the opening scene was a very Gorey one. This series has a lot of main characters and they all play a major role in the plot, there is keiichi the main male character,Rena the bubbly friend but who also has a dark past,  Mion the non girly girl who pretends to act tough, shion the sister of mion who plays a major major role later on, and Satoko and rika who are other classmates of theirs. 

When I begin this series I was majorly confused by episode 2, early in the series they throw in a lot of random factsabout the town curse and and lots of random actions that you are not sure what is real and what is not. By episode 4 Keiichi thinks that Rena and Mion are trying to kill him and he in turn kills then and he also dies. By this point im thinking we have 22 episodes left so where is this going to go. Then episode 5 starts and they are all alive and seem to be best friends, this is when I knew this series was going to be weird. 

From episode 5 to about 14  there are random arcs that range from shion flirting with Keiichi, a government officials son being kidnapped, the main doctor of the village being killed an of course coming back to life. At this point I am about ready to give up on the series and then magical episode 16 happens and everything starts to become clear. This starts the arcs with Shion who we now get backstory on and her entire arc clears up everything. It explains why Mion who turned out to be shion was trying to kill Keiichi, it explains the curse of the town and it explains the main mystery and that is what happened to Satoko's brother. By the time this arc was over I was in love with this show and I felt like I was going crazy because this confusing show was making tons of sense now and I was connecting all the dots.

Once we reach the end of the Shion arc, we come into the final arc which goes into the rena arc. This are was the craziest, it involved two people being killed, kids being taken hostage and a attempt to blow up a school. I have to mention that having Rena have maggots coming out of her skin was had to watch and made my skin crawl, but this arc was by far the most violent and it wrapped up why Rena was crazy and even revealed a secret about Keiichi. 

Once the final episode is over, it fast forward back to something that happens early in the series and it brings the series full circle. I have tried to stay spoiler free as possible and this is more of a observation than a spoiler but I believe that the entire time Rika is actually Oyashiro and she knows the secret behind the curse. You have to listen to what she says and how she says it, I could be wrong but thats the conclusion I came to.

This series had many twist and turns especially in the beginning  but it really picked up half way and it never looked back. It is a series that you have to watch really closely and see everything that happens. When I fist started i was giving this series a 5/10 but after finishing it i have to say its a 9/10 I really loved it and if you like having your mind being messed with this is the series for you.

Yu-Gi-Oh Movie Teaser Review

Hey guys, I just wanted to do a quick revew of the teaser trailer for the new Yu-Gi-Oh movie The Dark Side of Dimensions. Right away i must say this trailer was epic! It took me right back to the earlier 2000s when I saw Seto and Yugi face to face ready to duel. This mentioned that it takes place six months after the manga. I have not read the manga at all but this trailer was intense even for a teaser and I can not wait to see it. 

There is not much else to say because it was just a teaser but I just wanted to give my quick thoughts and I will link the trailer below.

Thanks for reading MAHO OUT!

Back one more time guys because I meant to do this sooner, as we all know the gaming world lost Satoru Iwata just a few days ago. This was a major shock to me personally as I did not see this coming, He and Nintendo have been a big part of my life and I know just by other post and videos I have seen that he impacted alot of gamers all over the word.

This was a horrible loss for all gamers and a even bigger lose for his family.

I just wanted to pay my respects and say that Mr. Iwata you will be missed but Thank you for impacting my life.

ok guys maho out.

Final Fantasy Type-O Manga First Impression

Hey Guys! Davius here, Im back today with a first impression of the Final Fantasy Type O Manga. I got the manga a few months ago in a issue of Otaku USA Magazine. This manga is just a demo but it gives you a pretty good insight of the characters. So here is the review!

The first thing that I notice right away in this manga is that each character has very strong personalities. Right away i was captivated by the characters especially Ace, who if you watch Seraph of The End he is basically the same character as Yu. Another this is most of the other characters have names that are based on numbers, I think this is due to the order of which they were brought into the "Family". The basic plot of this sample is taking you threw them battling a giant robot type monster attacking them and them going threw the process of fighting. I would go to long because there is not much to talk about although the characters do have really good interactions with each other and although they are not related they act like real brothers and sisters.

The manga overall was good, I enjoyed the characters and it was a pretty good read. I am not sure when the full manga is coming out but if you have not played the game yet, I would say read at least a little of the manga just so that you can get a feel for the characters.

Well I hope you guys enjoy the First impression, sorry I did not go into alot of detail but there was not a lot given due to in being a sample, but hope you guys enjoy!

Maho Out!

Puppy News!

Hey guys! I have been meaning to do this post for a few days now but school got in the way but here the post is now!

I wanted to talk about the closing of Anime Sols that just recently happened. When Anime Sols first started I thought that it was a good idea because it was bringing older anime back and giving us anime fans to own them. Now I should say that I never personally donated to any of the DVDs or box sets(not sure which ones they had). Personally none of the shows really caught my attention but It was good to see that a few shows were getting funded. When I heard that it was closing down I couldn't help but wonder if some of the shows were just a little to old for most anime fans my age(22) to be interested in it. While it is good to bring older anime back to a new audience, if today's anime fan is not familiar with the series then they may not spend money on it. Either way it is never good when a anime related company closes down, but it is good that fans did get to enjoy some of these older series again.

Ok guys I just wanted to give my take on the Anime Sols closing. Feel free to leave your opinions in the comments.

Have a good day, MAHO OUT!

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Demo

Hey Guys! A few days ago I was lucky enough to get a early code to download the demo for the new Monster Hunter game on 3ds. I found it funny that I got selected because I dont really play Monster Hunter lol. The game has been fun so far tho. The controls are pretty easy if you have touched a monster hunter game before and the graphics look amazing even with the 3d off. I also like that you can play the multiplayer hunts on the demo even tho I have not tried them yet. Even tho I am not a big monster hunter player I am really considering getting this one.

So I just wanted to share my thoughts on the demo with you guys and If any of you have the code maybe ill see you in a hunt!
