Fairy Tail Ch. 369 Review

Published January 31, 2014 by Shay Taree

So like many others I’ve started reading the fairy tail manga and I absolutely love it. I actually wish that it was released more than just once a week.

But anyway so on this weeks chapter we finally find out the fate of Jellal and then it leaves is with a bit of a cliffhanger since the seal has finally been released. Due to a unfortunate or fortunate circumstance if you want to look at it a certain way.

Now while I did enjoy this chapter I couldn’t help but want more but I guess that is what the mangaka wants from us. You don’t find out anymore about how the others are doing and you don’t find out anymore information about that guy Silver and who he is to Grey since Natsu said in the last chapter that they smelled alike. I’ve heard a few guesses as to what he may be but I’m guessing that he is Grey’s father but I guess we all just have to wait and see.

So if you haven’t yet go check out and read chapter 369 of Fairy Tail. I’m sure you’ll love it and want even more like I did.

Aishiteriuze Baby Review

Published January 30, 2014 by Shay Taree

I watched this anime a long time ago but it is still one of the few animes that gives me a warm fuzzy feeling inside.

This anime tells the story of a high school boy by the name of Kippei and he is a very flirtatious boy who flirts with every female and is know as a player. Well he ends up having to take on a lot more responsibility when his aunt Miyako disappears and leaves her 5 year old daughter Yuzuyu alone. Kippei then is given the task of having to take care of Yuzuyu which along the way causes him to grow up.

This was a really sweet anime that even have some romance in it for you romance junkies like myself. The only downside to this anime is that while it does end pretty well there is also a manga which I definitely recommend that you read as well. The manga gives a much more complete ending and it’s also a little sad too. But one this is definitely for sure is that if you watch Aishiteruze Baby you will be looking for more animes just like it.

Mori X Haruhi Shipping

Published January 29, 2014 by Shay Taree

So I love to read fan fiction and I know that it’s something that some anime fans like and some don’t. I tend to enjoy it and even though good well written stories are few and far between some are rather enjoyable.
One thing that I love about them is discovering pairings that you never would have thought would work and then leave you wondering why they won’t get together in the show. This brings me to this topic.

I just got done reading a Ouran High School fanfiction and the pairing was Haruhi and Mori. Now I know that in reality Haruhi and Tamaki are meant to be together but for some reason I seem to like Haruhi and Mori together. Maybe it’s because Mori is quiet but yet is very strong that blends well with Haruhi liking the quiet since her life is so hectic and in some ways wanting to be protected (even though she doesn’t say it). Plus I don’t know about anyone else but Mori is hot but I guess that’s because I like the strong silent types.

But anyway I really like this pairing and hope to read more fan fiction about them in the future. But what do you guys think about this pairing?

New Sports Anime: Haikyu!

Published January 28, 2014 by Shay Taree

So I don’t know about anyone else but I love to watch sports animes and I don’t know why but they are just really interesting to watch.

So far from what I’ve noticed is that there have been sports animes about soccer, baseball, basketball, football, and tennis (I apologize if I missed any). But now a new one is about to come out by the name of Haikyu and it’s about volleyball!

Now I’m still on the Kuroko’s Basketball train but this seems like one anime that I can’t wait to start airing so I can check it out. Haikyu from what I was able to research is about a boy by the name of Shouyou Hinata who loves Volleyball and is beaten in middle school by Tobio Kageyama also known as “King of the Court”. Of course Hinata vows revenge and applies to Karasuno High School and there he joins their volleyball club but as a twist of fate he ends up on the same team as his rival Kageyama.

So there you have it! Haikyu sounds like a really good anime if anyone like myself is starting to like sports animes. So definitely check it out once it’s released.

Ai Yori Aoshi Review

Published January 27, 2014 by Shay Taree

Ai Yori Aoshi was a really sweet anime that I watched on a whim when I couldn’t think of anything to watch but I was in a romantic anime kind of moon. I had kind of heard a lot about this show and while it is an older anime after reading the synopsis it peeked my interest and made me want to watch more.

The anime is about how Kaoru ends up meeting a girl named Aoi who is his betrothed fiancĂ© and childhood friend. Now he doesn’t know who she is at first but pretty quickly he finds out and when I mean quickly I’m talking about the first episode. But anyway Aoi is much different then other girls since she still wears Kimonos as her regular style of dress but all the same she is a very sweet girl.

Like most animes yes there is drama and there is even some mystery since as the series progress you want to know exactly why Kaoru ran away from his home in the first place.

No there were some moments where I did get bored with the series but the love that Kaoru and Aoi have for each other and the sweet moments they shared kept me watching. Oh as well as the interesting and funny characters that appear as the series continues.

So if your looking for a romantic series with some good fluff but also has the dramatic and mystery with some comedic moments then definitely check out Ai Yori Aoshi

Ah My Goddess Review

Published January 25, 2014 by Shay Taree

So this anime actually took me a long time to finally watch and while it’s not my favorite anime it was an okay watch.

Ah My Goddess is about a guy by the name of Keiichi who isn’t exactly what you would call the luckiest guy in the world. He is in the auto club at his college and he seems to always have the worst luck but regardless of that he has a great outlook on everything and it doesn’t hinder his spirit in any way. So while Keiichi is doing chores one day and is about to call his Sempai he instead ends up contacting the goddess helpline where he ends up getting Belldandy and that is where the real story begins.

Ah My Goddess is actually a cute love story because you can see how much Keiichi and Belldandy like each other but at times it did get a little boring. This isn’t to say that there wasn’t any drama because there was but it was usually the run of the mill someone is trying to take Belldandy back to the goddess realm.

But my favorite part of the series though would have to be Belldandy’s sisters who are introduced in the middle of series and they to me are the real stars of the show. They are definitely the comedic relief of the show and what kept me watching to the very end and made me actually decide to watch the sequel.

So overall this series while it wasn’t that greatest when it came to the romance it definitely will keep you laughing so feel free to check out Ah My Goddess!

Ouran High School Host Club Review

Published January 24, 2014 by Shay Taree

I can honestly say that Ouran High School Host Club is one of the few animes that I can watch over and over again and not get tired of it.

Ouran is about a girl named Haruhi who is an honor student on scholarship to the elite school Ouran Academy. Ouran Academy is a school where it seems only the rich and beautiful attend and poor Haruhi comes upon the host club when looking for a quiet place to study. She is unfortunately mistaken for a boy due to her short hair and her wearing boys clothes. Then due to an unfortunate incident she ends up in debt to the host club. From there let the wild and craziness being.

Now it’s not all craziness and laughter when it comes to the host club because as the anime progresses you get more of an insight about each of the hosts and their insecurities that they each struggle with. Plus a dilemma involving one of the hosts causes all the hosts to have a band together to protect each other and to keep then altogether like a family should.

This anime had me laughing from the very beginning and during some points made me even want to shed a few tears. Also before you ask yes I did watch it dubbed but the voice acting in it was awesome and to me the voices matched the characters perfectly.

One draw back to the series though is that is kind of leaves you on a bit of a cliffhanger since it leaves a few questions unanswered. This makes many to believe that there could be a 2nd season but as of now there has been NO inkling of a 2nd season being done. But if after you watch the series and you still want more Ouran then I highly recommend that you read the manga. I suggest that you read it from the very beginning since the anime doesn’t really follow the manga since there are some characters that are in the manga that aren’t in the anime and vice versea. Also there are some characters that play a bigger role in the manga than in the anime. But the manga also does give you a much better ending.

Overall though please enjoy jumping into the world of Ouran High School Host Club where everything is pink and full of the rich and beautiful!

Sailor Moon Review and Reboot

Published January 23, 2014 by Shay Taree

As many people by now know the Sailor Moon anime is getting a definite much needed upgrade. It has plans to be released in July of 2014 after various set backs since it was set to be released in the summer of 2013. This is one series that I have been excited about since the manga started being re-released.

The anime this time from what I’ve been reading isn’t so much a re-release of the same story but is instead going to follow the plot of the manga which means it’s going to be much more adult compared to the version many of us saw as kids.

Now Sailor Moon for me was the first anime series I ever watched and it is still one of my very favorites. But when I re-watched it as an adult I couldn’t help but notice how the same thing seems to happen in every single series. The negaverse sends out a monster onto Earth many people get their energy taken. Sailor Moon tries to help and says her tag line. The other scouts come and get defeated. Tuxedo Mask comes along and helps out Sailor Moon and then Sailor moon defeats the monster with one of her weapons. Well while this worked great when I was kid it got kind of boring for me as an adult.

But that didn’t stop me from falling in love all over again with the sailor scouts, Darien and Serena’s love story, and the deep friendship that all the sailor scouts have for each other.

Overall though I can’t wait until this is released and I can’t wait to see what American Anime corporation gets a hold of this nostalgic anime.
