Anime Quote:

"There's no such thing as a painless lesson-they just don't exist. Sacrifices are necessary. You can't gain anything without losing something first. Although if you can endure that pain and walk away from it, you'll find that you now have a heart strong enough to overcome any obstacle. Yeah... a heart made Fullmetal." - Edward Elric (Fullmetal Alchemist)

Review of Pandora Hearts

The Storyline although compared to some Anime, for me was unique in the fact it started in the past, but very quickly came into the present which then the main storyline and adventure starts. I also like the fact that they didn’t explain everything all at once and that, us as watchers had to figure things out ourselves (or ask your boyfriend to make sense of it). Another thing this storyline did was KEPT ME HOOKED after a certain episode, and any Anime that keeps me hooked and makes me go to bed late (later than normal) deserves praise. 

The Animation and Sound was amazing and truly brilliant. The OP song was very catchy and it really added to the feel of the Anime and the ED was a perfect ending to every episode, although when it came to the eps where you have to watch the next ep straight away, I kinda didn’t watch the ED’s. The Animation really went well with the Anime it is too and it couldn’t have been done any better than it was.

The Characters were truly remarkable, even the ones that I didn’t really like. Oz, Gilbert and Break were my favourite 3 characters because they all had a personality that I really enjoy, for example, Breaks humour.

Overall I really loved this Anime and it was so close to be perfect, but the slowness and part of the ending really robbed it of that perfect rating.

Final Rating:

Story- 9/10
Animation- 10/10
Sound- 10/10
Characters- 9/10
Overall- 9.5/10

Review of Attack on Titan

The Storyline is very very very unique. It shows friendship at the most roughest of times, anger, love and very strong emotions for different reasons and for both positive and negative reasons. The whole concept of Titans, really do make you think about life and how easy it is right now, and if this were to happen in real life, would we be able to risk our lives for the good of humanity. 

The Animation and Sound was really good. The animation was clear and perfect for the Anime. The sound was also very clear. The Opening and Ending songs were AMAZING and were perfect for the Anime and what was happening at the time. Our favourite is definitely the first Opening. 

The Characters are strong, bold, unique and the majority of them bounce of each others personality as they help each other with their strengths and weaknesses. 

  • Eren - He is a very strong character but shows weaknesses at times. He's very strong minded and gives it his all at all occasions. As the Anime progresses, he gains strength in all areas.  <3
  • Armin - He is weaker with physical strength but has a very strong mind and also very good with strategy planning which he shows at many occasions when no-one else did. <3
  • Mikasa - Her personality is very closed off, which makes us have a lack of connection with her, but she is a kick ass woman who is a great fighter and that is when her personality comes alive. <3
  • Levi - Very hot. He is very strong and has the kind of same personality has Mikasa in one way, but different in another. Not knowing his background makes him mysterious as well as sexy. <3
  • Dot - He drinks a lot but is very strong willed and is a very good commander. 
  • Erwin - He is a great leader as he sees potential in Eren. He is very good at strategy planning and is willing to sacrifice his own and other lives to save humanity.
  • Zoe - Has a crazy and mad personality which is very overwhelming at first but learn to love her. She wants to know more about the Titans and will risk her own life to do that.
  • Titan's - Scary, Creepy, Strong, Funny and Violent. 

Overall this Anime was amazing and unique. We really enjoyed watching this and it kept us on the edge of our seats for the majority of the series. We can't wait for second series next year.

Final Rating:

Story- 9.5/10

Review of The Irregular at Magic High School

This Anime piqued my interest because it was magic, and of course because the first OP was Rising Hope byLiSA (I love the artist LiSA).

The Storyline was really interesting and it started a little slow in my opinion but after a few eps I got really into it and because addicted to it. Any Anime that has magic, action and even some comedy really do get my go ahead at trying it out. Although this is a magic Anime, I would come close to say, it’s a little like alchemy because of the way it’s done and used.

The Animation and Sound was one of the best things about this Anime, it was amazing and it fit the type of Anime perfectly. The First and Second OP’s were amazing and the Second ED was equally amazing.

The Characters is the only part that I felt… got on my nerve and I found lacking something. The two main characters who are siblings, as in Brother and Sister were just a little too close to comfort and the fact Miyuki was practically throwing herself against her brother was just a little off putting at times. Even though both Tatsuya and Miyuki are classed as main characters, I really preferred when the focus was centred around Tatsuya as his personality was lacking in a really good way and I just loved how he does whatever it takes to protect the people he cares about, especially his sister. The other characters were amazing to make the Anime just that little more amazing especially Erika and Masaki.

Overall I really did enjoy this Anime and it got really good after the first few eps and even better halfway through. So please know that although you may not like it at first, when the OP changes to the second one, that is when it will get even better.

Final Rating:

Story- 9/10
Animation- 10/10
Sound- 10/10
Characters- 8/10
Overall- 8.8/10

Thoughts on: Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal (So Far)

Dark Kingdom ARC
I guess the first thing we need to talk about is the fact a childhood Anime has come back after everyone thinking it was gone for good.

The animation has changed dramatically for the better. Everything is so much brighter and colourful which makes it so much better as you can clearly tell who and what they are.
The part where they are changing from a civilian into a Sailor Scout, is very good, and really 3D like. I know a lot of people prefer the old version, but you have to admit and say its pretty cool seeing everything like its real-life.

The voice actors are so much better, although Usagi's is just as squeaky and annoying as always. This does help with the fact that this is how it is meant to be, as shes meant to be childish, clumsy and in a way... annoying.

The storyline has of course, changed a lot, as this is based of the Manga (Which we haven't read). The pace of this is so much faster but so much better than the original as you get to meet all of the characters a lot quicker than before, although they did leave the order you meet them, and fact Venus was a little longer than the others.

The intensity and seriousness in this is so much more, its less appealing to young children and more appealing to older children/young adults. The acting is also so much stronger and it gets emotions through a lot better than the original series.

Overall we really enjoyed this ARC and the all new Sailor Moon. If you loved the original, I can very much say, you will enjoy this series (Especially the end of the last episode of the ARC).
