Summer (July) Anime Releases

You can find the releases for which anime this July 2014 on the site, anichart.net. 

And I found a helpful chart here, where you can see a picture of the anime’s poster, along with it’s name. So it’s easier to find one to your animation preferences.

Must check out this anime, as it’s got a BUNCH of cool voice actors- Kirito from SAO, Ash Blake from Dragonar Academy. people from Log Hoizon, Fate/Zero?, Vampire Knight, Fairy Tail, No Game No Life, and much much more!)- called Akame ga Kill!  For details on the voice actors, plus pictures of the characters they’ll be voicing, click here.

Hope this is helpful!

It sure helped me get into the whole watching a season of anime, as it AIRS. I’ve never done that before so yeah =P

But I plan to again! It’s awesome ^_^

*poof*

Free! the Anime

So I started  a sportsy anime, Haikyuu. A show all about this super short kid that wants to play volleyball and be the very best that no one ever was as an Ace (a position that usually requires loads of height). And the constant talk of believing in yourself, and hilarity, and just typical school closeness, with super sappy lines had me!

Epic Fanart. But they messed up the numbers on the shirts =Y

I missed anime like that so MUCH. I think the last sports anime I’ve ever seen was…I can’t even recall! That’s how long it’s been. And I fell head over heals for this genre then.

But this anime is still ongoing! And I wanted to binge watch an epic sports anime.  NOW.

So I opened up a new tab, and did some searching. I came across Korouko no Basket, and a few others. (Watched the first ep, but I got hooked on something else after Alya told me I was on the look for sport anime.)

I started watching Free!, and anime all about swimming. It’s super short, complete, and only has twelve episodes, half the normal amount of episodes most anime have. It was awesome though! I seriouslyyy loooved it~!

I actually reaaally liked it! It was adorable, and in such a short time, I did manage to bond with a bunch of the characters! That’s no easy feat with just twelve episodes, ya know 😉

But, my fave characters have got to be Haru/Nanase, Rin, and Nagisaaaaa~

Nagisa’s awesome, fun, bright, and just generally happy. Haru, you come to love. And Rin- looks so damn cool, right?- but his creepy shark fangs look a bit frightening, especially paired with those red eyes…

More pictures~!

Why is Rei randomly just THERE in the background..?

This picture ❤

Kinda Cute Chibis!

Although I watched the first eleven episodes in two days, I didn’t watch the last one til last night. (After three ish days.) But I loved it’s ending, and it ended with THIS picture;

READ THAT ENGLISH LINE. READ IT.

See you next Summer!

Which means there was the initial intention to make a second season!! So I did some more googling, and what to I find? THIS!

Dat Blue Two.

A confimation on it’s release- this JULY ❤ (I found out here.)

Yay :3 I can’t wait now!

 

Sword Art Online Season II Announcement- News, Initial take, and Story Line Discussion

On the little chatango box to the right of animeultima.tv (where I watch all  my anime. I’d seriously recommend it; it’s awesome!), I saw people discussing Sword Art Online. And it’s second season coming out.

Now, I had only started watching it a bit  a few months back, and had only seen the first three episodes. But I had heard Alya fangirl over it all the time. And the way she talked about it, I thought the show already had two seasons, both of only 12 episodes each. So when I saw this discussion on the new Season II releasing in July ’14, I thought the admin on the site had just been too lazy to upload season II before (I’m sorryyy! >.< I’ll never doubt your hard work, and perseverance again!) and were going to upload that in July.

Turns out I was huuugely mistaken, and there’s only one 24 episode season I of SAO, and they are releasing a sequel season soon. But it’s story line is terrible so far for sooo many reasons!

First, I thought that Kirito wasn’t in it at all! And that these two chicks were instead;

Main Characters~

How cool do they look?- But, no! No Kirito?! Then how’s it SAO?! It’s an unnecessary weird spin off thing, like Soul Eater Not! (Like it, but not as good as the original series.)

And then Alya does a bit more googling on the story line, while I google more on it’s release.

It turns out Kirito IS in the story. But Alya misinformed me and said he’s in it as a SUPPORTING CHARACTER to these two chicks.

Bring out the army of fangirls. This isn’t going to be pretty.

But theeen, we find the actual story- Kirito’s avatar is simply that of a girl’s! He’s the maroon haired chick here! This chick;

*Avatar may or may not be this blue. I don’t know.*

*Or this maroon. They need to decide a color scheme, sheesh.*

And him having the avatar of a girl’s is terriiible! Because he’s obviously going to get stuck in a game again, and for the vast majority of the show, we shall see him as a giiirl! Ewww! As someone who think’s Kirito’s adorable, cool, and cute, I’d hate to watch him as a girl all of a sudden. That just doesn’t work for me.

What were the writers thinking? They’re going to end up loosing loads of fans! And the fans they think they’ll gain with She-Kirito’s boobs won’t be that big if no one even understands the confusing mess they’ve made out of the story. I mean, it’s only normal to assume the lead will be the same- and same gender >.> =/- in a sequel series. So not many people will skip SAO and just watch SAO II cuz of the girl leads.

Pfft, and the best thing is this stereo type the Japanese are playing on the Americans. Usually, in anime and manga it’s a rule that all American foreigners muuust be blue eyed and blonde? Well, here they’re adding to that (I hope!) and adding this impression from the internet. The American video game Kirito’s playing now is all about- you guessed it- GUNS!

Gun Gale Online (GGO) (Gale? Reallyyy?? Like, a gust of guns? Like a wind bringing guns with it? Or super guns that blow air too? What a name…) is a game all about guns. But Kirito’s got too much swag for that shiz and obviously went “I’m Japanese. In an Anime. I do what I WANT! Your laws don’t apply to me! And even if you do try to get me to adhere to the rules of this game, I shall use my Japaneseness to simply recode the program of your game to allow me to play with epic swords!” on them and did just that. He has a sword (light saber thing…?)(as well as a gun?) as his weapon.

[I don’t mean to sound mean toward these nationalities. I’m simply joking around. It’s all fun and games. Please don’t take any of this seriously. If anyone out there is offended, know that that was not my intention, and you shouldn’t be. I’m not serious. But in case you still are, I apologize for bring about such a mood on you.]

I gotta go now;I’m exhaaausteeed.

‘Night~!
