I’m very sure about this: I definitely choose Natsume from the Natsume Yuujinchou franchise. I think he is a great character with a lot of complexity and depth. He’s very loyal (to both his friends and his foster parents) and he wants to do everything in his power to make the world a better place for everyone. Read the rest of this entry »

Anime that are based upon games are usually not my cup of tea, but I decided to give this one a try nevertheless. Soon I found out, though, that a basic knowledge of the game was necessary in order to be able to understand the story at its fullest. Read the rest of this entry »

My favourite anime – that has to be Wolf’s Rain! I loved this anime from the first second to the last. Despite the fact that it seems to be popular, I still think that Wolf’s Rain is underestimated by most people. It was the second anime that I watched, and I’ve re-watched it two times now.

An anime by Clamp can’t be bad, that’s what I thought at the beginning of this series, so I was happy to start with this one. It didn’t take long before I noticed that all the stereotypical Clamp features from other Clamp anime (consisting of pretty boys, fantasy elements, life-threatening tasks and legs and arms that can’t possibly be natural) were also present in this anime. It didn’t bother me, on the contrary, I found this distinct style quite charming. Read the rest of this entry »

I’ve had my share of vampire stories. I didn’t know this anime was about those overrated creatures when I started it, and if I had, I had probably not given this series a chance. But in the end I’m happy I did, because finally someone realized that it was time to give the vampires back their original form, i.e. scary and thirsty for blood. Read the rest of this entry »

“This anime was not what I had expected.” This phrase came to mind after I had finished the series. And that’s still how I feel about it. It’s like going on a journey, starting in Japan and ending up in the United States (this is only a metaphor of course, the characters don’t suddenly change location… or do they?). Some elements were very unpredictable, which resulted in the fact that I watched one episode after another in order to make sense out of all the events. Read the rest of this entry »

Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet has been used (and abused) so many times in contemporary fiction that people have started to get enough of it. I doubt there is anyone in the English-speaking world (and even outside of it) that doesn’t know the story of the girl and the boy that were not meant to love each other due to family matters. But this was quite a refreshing change from the ordinary adaptations of the play, since we get some fantasy elements thrown in. It’s quite a successful attempt at an original remake, I’d say.

Be honest: who wouldn’t want a handsome young butler who is capable of making any dish you want and who can clean your house in the blink of an eye? How much that costs, you say? Nothing! Nothing at all! Oh… wait, that’s not true… He actually wants your soul. Read the rest of this entry »
