Even long before I thought of watching this anime, I came across pictures and fan-art of D.Gray-Man. It is, after all, a pretty popular series; no one can deny that. On the one hand I think that its popularity is completely justified, but on the other hand the series let me down a number of times as well. Generally speaking, though, I enjoyed this series.

Imagine you wake up in Washington, with no clothes, but you do possess a gun and a cellphone. You don’t remember who you are, where you came from and what happened before that moment. What will you do? Akira knows the answer to that: ask a random guy for his pants and after that, find out about your past! Read the rest of this entry »

One day, someone thought: “Hey, I’ll write a light novel that confuses my readers!” And that’s how Durarara was born. Well, that’s probably not how it went, but in my mind it did go this way. What other reason could there be for making a story this complicated and full of plot twists?! I haven’t read the light novel, but I can imagine it’s just as complex and fascinating as the anime.

There are quite a lot of anime villains that I like. Well, maybe “like” is not the most adequate word; perhaps it’s better to say that there are a lot of anime villains that are portrayed in an interesting way. The villain that I think is the most interesting is Darcia from Wolf’s Rain.

SPOILER WARNING: this blog post may contain spoilers of Wolf’s Rain. You have been warned. Read the rest of this entry »

I’m a sucker for those anime that focus on one specific hero or heroine and then portrays the struggles and hardships he or she has to go through in order to become what they want to be. Add in some flirting with “the dark side” and you’ll have me hooked. I think an anime characer that fills these requirements is Hei from Darker than Black. Read the rest of this entry »

There are only a few anime that I’ve seen so far that truly fit into the category of a ‘shounen’ anime, which means that its main audience is boys. My personal favourite of those is Katekyo Hitman Reborn. Even though it was rather predictable, I enjoyed all 203 episodes of this anime. And believe me, Katekyo Hitman Reborn is a real shounen anime, with action and long-lasting fights. Read the rest of this entry »

Again I’m a few days late with this entry, which is partly because I’m leaving for Finland in less than a week (yay!) and also partly because I had to think about this challenge. I think yandere characters are way harder to recognize than tsundere characters for some odd reason. It’s hard to find a character that completely fits the description of a yandere. Actually, I’d even go as far as saying that Bianchi from Katekyo Hitman Reborn is the only yandere I can think of right now. Read the rest of this entry »

Generally speaking, I don’t like tsundere characters. Ferris from Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu is an exception to this, though. I won’t claim she’s my favourite character of all times, but strangely enough she never really annoyed me, and sometimes she was even very funny. And all that while she’s as stereotypical as a tsundere gets. Read the rest of this entry »

I’m halfway the 30 day challenge, and I must say that this is a tricky challenge. There is such a great number anime soundtracks that I love, and often it depends on my mood. But if I’d have to evaluate an anime soundtrack as a whole, and not just a couple of lovely tracks, I choose for the Fairy Tail soundtrack, because it is of a consistently high standard and it is at the same time very recognizable.

I haven’t seen that many mecha series (now that I think about it, Persona Trinity Soul and Code Geass are the only ones I’ve seen so far… I once tried Gundam Mobile Suit 00, but that one is still on-hold for the moment). And if I have to choose between Persona Trinity Soul and Code Geass, then that choice is quickly made: I choose for Code Geass. Read the rest of this entry »
