Vampire Knight

on

I was introduced to this anime through a friend who wanted me to read the manga.  I haven't read the manga yet, seeing as I already have three ongoing mangas I'm reading, but I do plan to in the future.  There's alot in the anime that I like. Vampire Knight is about Cross Academy, a high school where vampires attend night classes.  Yuki Cross is the main character; her earliest memory is, as a child, being attacked by a vampire and also rescued by one, Kaname Kuran.  This was ten years earlier.  Yuki and Zero Kiryu, a vampire hunter, are guardians at the school.  They protect...

Fruits Basket

on

Fruits Basket is one of those anime that I've seen once, but I'd watch again for one character (he's only in a few episodes).  I know a lot of people love this anime, but I honestly don't know why.  It's a little immature and I guess the majority of the audience is 14 years old or younger. Tohru Honda is a girl who lives in a tent; her mom recently died and she was living with her grandfather, but his house is being remodeled.  She told him that she would be living with a friend, but in truth she is living in a tent by herself because she doesn't want to be a burden to anyone.  One day...

Kuroshitsuji

on

Finally, I've come to review my favorite anime of all.  I do have about five favorite anime, but I think this one above all is my absolute favorite.  Kuroshitsuji, or Black Butler, is just...EPIC!  There's more than just anime for this one, too, so I'm reviewing it all in one!  There's the manga, the music, and the anime...and a musical, which I haven't seen yet, and a videogame, which I have yet to play. Black Butler is about a demon, Sebastian Michaelis, who makes a contract with a boy, Ciel Phantomhive.  The contract is basically that Sebastian serves Ciel as his butler until he... See full review

The Cat Returns

on

Ah!  The Cat Returns!  One of my favorite Studio Ghibli films; I've seen it so many times.  Hayao Miyazaki, please make a sequel!!!  ^_^ (I'm such a kid...) Haru is a normal high school girl who's going through the normal teenage stuff; the boy she likes doesn't notice her and she lacks self-confidence.  On her way home from school, she saves a cat from being run over and he thanks her.  Yes, the cat thanks her.  Later that night, cats come to her house, the King specifically.  These cats tell her that the cat she saved was the Prince and to thank her, they will be...

Haibane Renmei

on

Haibane Renmei was an anime that I thought was going to be more than what it was.  I was honestly a little disappointed.  If you're reading this, it's a good thing because now you won't expect too much out of it.  I'm not saying it was bad.  I'm just saying that I was disappointed. There are Haibane, which are a group of individuals that look like angels, who live in Old Home.  Most of them are children.  Every Haibane is born from a cocoon into this world and before they are born, they all have a dream.  They are named after their dream.  Rakka...

Pet Shop of Horrors

on

Pet Shop of Horrors is one of those anime that sounds like it would be worth watching.  Honestly, I wasn't too impressed.  I do plan on reading the manga at some point because I do like the character, Count D, but the anime is far from appealing. It's an OVA that only has four episodes.  With every contract Count D makes, there are three rules.  They always include that they are never to show the creature to anyone and if they break any part of the contract, there are bad consequences. The first, is about a couple who lost their daughter.  They go to Count D, an androgynous pet... See full review

Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai

on

Ore no Imouto, fully named Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai, translates as My Little Sister Can't be This Cute.  This was an anime that I was hesitant to watch.  I was doing an only anime/manga craft swap and my partner had this listed as her favorite so I watched it to get an idea of what sort of things she liked and as it turns out, I loved it, too! It's about a teenage boy named Kyosuke who lives with his younger sister, Kirino, but they hardly talk because they are so different.  In fact, she never seems to really notice he's there.  One day, Kyosuke finds a DVD in their...

Kiki's Delivery Service

on

Kiki's Delivery Service is another one of the many Studio Ghibli films that will steal your heart.  There's nothing like Studio Ghibli to make you feel happy and free.  It's the only way I can describe it.  I grew up on Totoro and Kiki's Deliver Service was my second Studio Ghibli film I ever saw.  I've seen it so many times since then.  I'm 22 and I still love watching these films and I feel like a carefree kid again when they're done. Kiki is a young witch who just turned 13.  It's a custom that whenever a witch turns 13, she takes off on her own for a year to train her... See full review

Ouran High School Host Club

on

I will warn you now...this is going to be a rather extensive review.  This is one of my favorite anime and I have seen it, all the way through, three times.  Ouran, for me, is one of the best anime I have seen. Haruhi Fujiyoka is a girl who just started her first year at Ouran Academy, a private school.  She is a commoner who is there on scholarship.  The anime opens to Haruhi looking for a quiet place to study.  The libraries are full and noisy so she sets off to find an open room.  She comes across an old music room that, she thought, wasn't being used.  Opening the...

Elfen Lied

on

Elfen Lied is a very psychological anime and contains a lot of graphic violence (blood and gore).  There is near nudity throughout the series, therefore, it's for mature audiences only. This anime has so much meaning behind the story.  It deals with a mutant species called Diclonius, which look like humans, but have two horns on their head called "vectors."  These vectors are telekinetic arms that extend out certain distances, which is different for each Diclonius, and can cut, grab, crush, and kill whatever it wants.  The main character is a girl named Lucy who, as a child...

Hanasakeru Seishounen

on

I was a little hesitant to watch this anime at first.  Honestly, I only gave it a chance out of boredom.  The story seemed a little childish and well, even after watching a few episodes, I still didn't know whether I liked it or not. Hanasakeru Seishounen is about a teenage girl, Kajika, who is the only daughter of Harry Burnsworth, the head of a major coorporation.  When she's 14, he decides to put an idea to her about a "husband finding game."  The game is that she will meet three men, which he has chosen, and chose from them a husband, but she also must make them fall in...

Howl's Moving Castle

on

This review has been long awaiting post.  I originally did this review after the film came out in English.  However, I've done some editing based on new opinions and watching it many more times.  I believe it's a must to watch a Studio Ghibli film at least twice before reviewing it; you'll get a much better opinion that way (especially if you grew up on them). Studio Ghibli films leave an everlasting impression.  You fall in love.  Howl's Moving Castle certainly is no exception.  This is a movie you will want to watch over and over again.  When times are rough...

Saiunkoku Monogatari

on

~Spoiler Warning!!!~ Let me first begin by saying that I loved this anime! Saiunkoku Monogatari, The Tale of the Land of Colored Clouds or The Story of Saiunkoku, is about a young girl, named Shuurei Kou, trying to become the first female official in this ancient Japanese world ruled by men. She lives with her father, the eldest son of the noble Kou family.  Her mother died when she was younger, shortly after adopting a boy they named Seiran, who we come to know as the exiled prince Seian.  The anime starts...
