When Anime’s Just Stop!

Published November 30, 2015 by Shay Taree

So I don’t know if anyone finds this annoying but I do!!! I hate when anime’s just stop and then there is just no continuation. Now I don’t mean when a show just doesn’t have a 2nd season I mean when it stops in the middle of a season. 

There are really only 2 shows that I’ve had do this to me and one was an anime called Daa Daa Daa. 

It was a really good anime I couldn’t wait to finish it but then literally there are other episodes but they have never been subtitled nor can I find them. This really irked me because I was so invested in a show that I wasn’t even able to finish. Yes I was able to go and finish the series due to reading the manga but in some ways it just wasn’t the same. 

The other series was D. Gray-Man. 

Now Funimation got a hold of this show so I was watching it dubbed but then the dubbed stopped due to now enough people watching it or buying the DVD’s. Now I don’t blame Funimation for this one because it was a great series so for this one I actually blame us the fans for not supporting it more. Now I know that you may be asking why I didn’t just watch it subbed but that’s because I find it difficult to go between voices like that because I have to get used to it again. 

But I really hate when this happens to anime series and I really wish that it wouldn’t happen but it some ways I can understand because while it is entertainment it is also a business. 

So what do you all think of this. Comment down below with your opinions. I can’t wait to read them.

Anime Family!

Published November 27, 2015 by Shay Taree

Since Thanksgiving is now over but it is also a time for family I decided to talk about anime families. 

I always like seeing the different anime families that are involved with each series but I want to know do you have a favorite?

I think that I do and my favorite has to be the different family dynamics in Dragon Ball Z. 

This is because there is the blood related family dynamics but there is also the friends that are like family dynamics. I don’t know why but I just love it. 

But what or who are your favorite anime families. Comment down below and let me know. Also I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and a great time with your families.

Guilty Pleasure Anime!

Published November 23, 2015 by Shay Taree

So I know that many of us have either enjoyed an anime that we shouldn’t have or we have a genre of anime that we like that others may not like. 
I know that for me when it comes to anime my guilty pleasure anime has to be any anime that I watched when I was younger. No matter how old I get or even how bad it is I still enjoy it. I guess it the nostalgia I get from those anime but I can totally watch them whenever I’m bored or just want something to watch that entertaining.

As far as for anime genres that are a guilty pleasure I guess I would have to say any anime that’s geared towards romance. I guess it’s the girly side of me but for some reason I just enjoy that genre so much so the most love involved in it the more I love it. 

So what anime, anime genre, or both do you find is your guilty pleasure. Comment down below with your answers. I can’t wait to read them!

Anime Hair & Makeup!

Published November 20, 2015 by Shay Taree

As everyone knows I’m a girl and I’m absolutely well kind of obsessed with hair and makeup. Whether it’s finding new things to do with my hair or even finding new makeup to try. But if there is one place that I go to for a lot of inspiration is to anime. 

Now while some of the looks are kind of out there or not exactly ideal for everyday wear it is really fun to try out a few of the looks. 

Now makeup in anime isn’t a big thing from what I’ve noticed but hair and hair accessories I definitely notice. 

I like all the ribbons, the curls, the braids, and just the overall styles that are shown in anime.

So I have tried a few and have failed but has anyone else tried to duplicate an anime look? Now this doesn’t have to be if your cosplaying as that character this could also be if your just going to the mall or hanging out with your friends. 

I’ve decided to start posting more topics that can be relatable to everyone. But don’t worry I will still be posting anime related content. But comment down below! I can’t wait to read your comments!

Anime Cosplay!

Published November 16, 2015 by Shay Taree

So I personally have never cosplayed although I have thought about it. But I overall find cosplaying to be so interesting and such a creative aspect. 

Even if someone buys their costume online I think it is still amazing because you get to dress up as either your favorite character or a character that is similar to you. 

But for those that make their costumes that is something entirely different. There is so much that goes into it such as the planning the supplies and also the time. In the end a majority of the time a wonderful and amazing costume has been made. 

I actually know a few people who cosplay a lot and I always look forward to seeing what new costumes they come out with. 

But overall that is my opinion or outlook on anime cosplaying. What does everyone else think? Comment down below and I can’t wait to read your comments.

Wolf Children Review!

Published November 11, 2015 by Shay Taree

So once again it is Wednesday and I have a new anime review for everyone today. The anime that I’m reviewing is actually an anime movie and it’s the movie Wolf Children. Also check out my YouTube video where I review this movie as well:

So here is a synopsis of Wolf Children: “Ookami Kodomo no Ame to Yuki is about a young woman named Hana who falls in love with her mysterious college classmate who is actually a wolf man. The couple produce two children who also possess their father’s lineage; the big sister Yuki, who was born on a snowy day, and the little brother, Ame, who was born on a rainy day.

The wolf man suddenly dies one day, leaving Hana to raise the two wolf children herself and struggle to keep their secret. But when the family is threatened by eviction, child services, and neighbors annoyed by Ame’s constant crying (and often both Wolf Children’s howling, which the landlady mistakes for pets), Hana decides to move out to the secluded country side where her kids can roam free.”

So I can honestly say that I throughly enjoyed this movie since it was interesting to see two siblings with the same lineage go their separate ways or down their own paths. Also it was interesting to see each child’s personality change over the course of the movie. 

The oldest child Yuki 

starts off as a very rambunctious child that is very confident and brave. But once Yuki starts going to school and noticing that she is different from classmates especially when it comes to her interests she decides to change. This isn’t to say that she isn’t confident anymore but it was interesting to see how Yuki changed how she was to be liked by her classmates. 

Now when it comes to Ame 

the youngest he started off very different from his sister. He was very shy and timid. He also didn’t like being away from his mother too often and didn’t have a lot of confidence. It was until one day when he tried to kill a bird while as a wolf that it all changed. Ame became more confident and didn’t let when he started going to school let others change him.

Now Yuki and Ame as they started to grow older both started to accept themselves differently and also different part of themselves. Yuki seemed to have favorited her human side more than her wolf side. But Ame favored his wolf side more than his human side. Ame was definitely the child that wanted to learn more about what it takes to be a wolf. 

When it comes to their mother Hana 

though I definitely have to give her some respect since after losing the love of her life she had to figure out how to raise two children that were so different from others. She had to learn how to do it on her own and figure out along the way of she was doing it correctly. 

As for the art style of the movie I actually enjoyed it. It was very similar to Summer Wars and also to the Digimon Movie that came out years before. I know that others didn’t like it a lot but I did since it wasn’t the first time that I saw this art style. 

But the anime was actually recommended to me on Twitter by Nyshing (@ThePrimeAbyss). Also if you would like to recommend me anime to watch don’t hesitate to do so. 

Anyways overall I give this anime a 10/10. If you’ve seen this anime before did you enjoy it? If you haven’t then will you now see it? I can’t wait to read your comments!
