Why Harm Idols?

Hey guys, hope everyone is doing great. I had no plans on doing a blog today, well change that I did plan to do a blog just not on this topic. I will give you a heads up this post wont have to many facts because it will mostly just be my opinion but enough ranting and lets get started. So I was checking Anime News Network like I often due and today I ran across a story that I am starting to see way to many of and that is a Idol being threaten. This story was about a man threatening the voice actress Sumire Uesaka. I will never understand how you can send death threats to someone who you claim to be a fan of, especially sending threats when you have zero logical reason to do so. Im a fan of the Korean rapper CL when she came to Atlanta her ticket prices were a bit out of my range but you didnt see me saying i wanted to harm her over something that small that really had no affect on me. So after reading this I decided to search the database to just see how many of these stories were there, I was surprised by the amount I found. There was the story where a 22 year old student threaten to beat voice actress Suzuko Mimori to death, the story where a 39....yes 39 year old man threatened voice actress Satomi Satou because he felt she ignored him during her concert, the story where voice actress and singer Inori Minase had to cancel events due to threats and last but not least the story where a 32 again yes 32 year old man was arrested for threats that he wanted to kill voice actress Nana Mizuki saying that he wanted to kill her because he emailed her saying that he wanted to meet her and she ignored she should have. Something really has to be done about the harassment, maybe you could have the voice actors and idols just have fan pages on social media instead of allowing fans access to their personal pages, and also during events such as meet and greets they may have to have security pat people does especially the males. Sorry to go off on a rant this is just something that bothers me every-time i read one of the stories because im always shocked at how obsessed some fans can be because they dont understand that the people and yes they are people are doing a job and while they enjoy making fans happy they are not someone you can own. MAHO OUT!

Movie Review: Black Butler ( Live Action)

Hey guys! As you know its Davius here....or maybe you dont know lol but I hope everyone has been doing great. This post will be a little different from the post I have done before. Yesterday while at work i decided that i should watch the Black Butler live action movie, so i watched it and i decided I should review it.

So I didnt realize that the Black Butler movie came out in 2014, I remember hearing about it coming out and i really wanted to see it but clearly time passed and i didnt get around to it but i finally did. The first thing that I noticed and Im sure anyone who has watched this movie noticed and that is instead of our main character being Ciel the main character is Kiyohara Genpu and I must say the actress Ayame Goriki who plays the main character is so so so so cute lol did i mention she was cute, but that aside she really did a good job in this role and I thought she put just the right amount of emotion into the character. 

I must say I wasnt sure what to expect from Mizushima Hiro playing the role of Sebastian but he really did good, in those fight scenes he really looked great, and thats my next thing i really enjoyed each fight scenes they were swift and each attack looked smooth and i was really into them. My favorite fight scene by far though was the one where Rin went on a rampage and she went into full Hitman mode lol it was beautiful. 

Before I get into the small thing i didnt like I have to mention just how beautiful the sceneary was, there were scenes where they were out in the garden and wow it was just stunning to look at. Now to the one small thing that I didnt really like and that was the Undertakers character, I did like his look but he sort of felt out of place a little bit you only see him once and it honestly could have been left out.

Overall I will say I really enjoyed this movie, The story was really good, the characters were all fun to watch and I must say it does get bloody which i was surprised by but i did enjoy. If you are a fan of the anime I say watch it for sure but if you prefer the manga more than the anime it may not be for you because it does change some things around but you still may enjoy it. Oh did I mention the actress who plays the aunt is also beautiful lol deadly but beautiful. I think I have to give this movie a 8/10 because I really loved it.  If you want to watch I dont know if there is a dvd with english subs but it is online on Kissasian.

Well hope you guys enjoyed this review and I think Ill do more of these, so until next time

Peter of Placid Forrest Review

Hey guys! Hope everyone is having a great week so far, if your like me your finishing up finals( and hopefully passing). I have been trying to get this review up for a few weeks now but i have been getting distracted. As alot of you may know, I watch alot of older anime some good but mostly bad lol, a few weeks ago i was on kissanime about to watch either the new spring shows or the last of the winter shows and i ran across something i never knew existed.....and that is one called Peter of The Placid Forrest.

Peter of the Placid Forrest is the ultimate kids anime, when it first started i was thinking "what did I get myself into". If I can summarize this, the towns people want to destroy the Forrest to build up malls or something similar to Walmart and the animals ( who talk) and peter( who is a mix of fairy and gnome), who fight against the people to protect the Forrest. I will just say this show is terrible but in a weird way it was very entertaining, I will say for a kids anime the animals get a little violent with the adults but then again the people were just greedy who didnt think trees were worth saving. My favorite character by far was the crow, he not only was the leader but he was also just all over the place.

This is one of those animes that when you watch you really see how far anime has come, this one came out in 1980 and it looks every bit of the 80s. I will say if you need something to watch on a Saturday afternoon this is the perfect anime oh i forgot to mention its also dubbed....yes its dubbed lol so you can turn it on and let it play why you do something else. If you enjoy diving into the vast pile of anime history like i do, then this is a must watch, but it will be a hour that you will never get back lol.

Thanks for reading

Mangirl!: Forgotten Anime 9?

Hey Guys! Hope everyone is having a great day. Its time for a new post and today Im back with another forgotten anime, I had to browse my anime list to see which show i should write about, after browsing two or three i decided on on that was short and sweet. That anime is Mangirl!

Mangirl! came out in 2013, i didnt realize it had been so long but this was the same year that such animes as Log Horizon, Kill La Kill, Danganronpa, Blood Lad and a small anime called Attack on Titan came out.

When I go back now and look its easy to see why Mangirl was forgotten and is easily over looked, Mangirl was a series much like Hetalia in the fact that the episodes ran for about 3-5 mins. With the episodes being so short it made it appealing but it also made it a skippable(yes not a word lol) show because people like to get alot of story from their anime. 

What I liked about Mangirl was that the story was nice and simple and it was just a funny show. Mangirl was about a group of girls who decided to become mangaka and the show goes threw the process of them getting the manga done and out to the people, the best way to describe the show is imagine if the girls from Kiniro Mosaic decided to make a manga its just as cute and silly as that show. 

Mangirl! is just a lighthearted anime that you can watch and it will just put a smile on your face, and while it is short they found a way to fit alot of story into each episode and it made for a fun experience. Hopefully you will all go check out this fun show and hope you enjoy it as much as i did.

Well thank you for reading, as we say

demon city shinjuku Review

Hey guys! Hope everyone is having a great week. Work has been slow and I have gotten most of my homework done so im back with a OVA review for you guys. As most of you probably know we do review our fair share of classic anime here and today is no different. The anime I will be reviewing today is from 1988 and it is  Demon City Shinjuku.

Where do I start when talking about Demon City, I will say out of all the 80's anime that I have seen this isnt the worst but its not great either. The first thing I will point out is the one character that you only meet once, she works at this restaurant and threw-out this whole movie with all the fighting and everything she just seems to disappear lol Im going to try and sum this up: The plot is basically demons take over, the president who has a Japanese name but apparently has never been to japan gets attacked and they have to save him.

Now this anime is very 80's from the dub voices which consist or a southern voice, a British voice, and a Mexican accent. I will admit tho the character with the Mexican accent was my favorite. This anime doesnt take itself to serious which is good because it does have some decent fight scenes but the story is a little flawed at times. One of my favorite scenes is when they go to pay this old lady and she takes off with the money.  The anime is cheesy for sure, a bit over complicated but in all it is fun to watch although the ending is anticlimactic to say the least.

Well that is my review. Overall I would have to give it a 5/10, its not terrible but its could have been alot better. If you want to check it out i do know its on youtube and also on kissanime and it is dubbed. Thanks for reading!

Trinity Blood: Forgotten Anime 8?

Hey guys! Finally back again with another post for you guys. Hope everyone has had a good new years so far and have been watching a lot of anime new or old. I love doing these forgotten anime post so today here is another, this show is one i think i will re-watch because i never gave it the full attention it deserved at first. The anime that i will be talking about today is one that may ring a bell and that show is Trinity Blood.

I decided to talk about trinity blood because i got to thinking and its a anime that i never hear anyone mention at all despite it being on adult swim years ago. When i first got into anime trinity blood was one of the first shows i saw. I remembered it being a pretty cool show especially for someone who had only seen dbz and naruto at that time. In a odd way it reminds me of Vampire Knight but a tad darker. I dont know if the series just never gained a fan base here or it just lost steam over the years but its a disappointment that the show seems to just get looked over. It also does not help that the show was on tv during the same time Eureka Seven and Blood + both which are still very popular shows and two of my personal favorites. When you compare trinity to these to it is easy to see why it may have gotten looked over, while it is equally as dark as blood + im not sure it was quite on the same level story wise.

I hope that more people will start to revisit this series because it does deserve a little more credit for being a really good vampire vs the church anime ( i just made a genre lol). I will also revisit it because i do remember enjoying it at the time and as my taste has grown i hope to see it from a different view this time around.

Thank you guys for reading and hope you enjoy the post.
