Review: Anime\Manga

August 6, 2012

Hey there again guys\gals,
It's been a while hasn't it. Today is going to be a little different. Since one of my best friends not really introduced me, but told me to watch some anime I have been sucked in and have been using all of my book time to watch anime and read Manga.So instead of slacking on the blog because after all this is a book blog I though I'd talk\write a short review about some of the Manga\Anime I have been watching\reading recently. I also wanted to say that I do have some upcoming reviews -- Shatter Me and Sweet Evil (Blog tour) And once I get out of this Anime addiction habit and can finally read again without thinking of little characters as as the characters in the book ( I try to picture real people when I read haha) there will be a review of A Bad Day for Voodoo, Pushing the Limits and a couple of other things, but as of right now let's get started.

So the first one that my bestfriend,Aimee told me to watch was..

Madoka Magica 
When a new girl joins her class, Madoka Kaname feels she recognizes the mysterious, dark-haired transfer student from one of her dreams...a dream where she is approached by a cat-like creature who offers Madoka an opportunity to change destiny. Madoka had always thought magic was the stuff of fantasy...until she sees the transfer student fighting with the very cat-being from her dream! And just like in Madoka's dream, the cat gives her a choice: Will Madoka become a Puella Magi in exchange for her dearest desire? What will be the cost of having her wish come true? 

Now I was definitely sucked into this one and this was the one that started it all off. I watched this anime and while it was weird it was amazing! I have to say. This anime is very comical, but sad as it goes along because there is a lot of twisting words and deceiving these girls to do these things, but in the end it all ends well I guess you could say. There is friendship in this Anime and a lot of finding out who your friends are. It's also very mysterious.

Okay so the next one I have actually read the first Manga, but I haven't read them all so I ventured off to try and find out if there was anime and there was! :D which made my day, but there are so many episodes! I think there is like 144 of them and they are each 24-25 minutes long. I am only on episode 44, but I will get there eventually : O

 Shugo Chara
Everybody at Seiyo Elementary thinks that stylish and super cool Amu has it all: But nobody knows the real Amu, a shy girl who wishes she had the courage to truly be herself. Changing Amu’s life is going to take more than wishes and dreams–it’s going to take a little magic! One morning, Amu finds a surprise in her bed: three strange little eggs. Each egg contains a Guardian Character, an angel-like being who can give her the power to be someone new. With the help of her Guardian Characters, Amu is about to discover that her true self is even more amazing than she ever dreamed.

 Shugo Chara... Ahh how can I put all the things I want to say into a short review without giving spoilers.! Why must they make the guy characters so... what's the word.... cute\hot. Seriously I never thought I would be crushing over an anime guy character, but than again I crush over guys in YA so why not!? Haha. Well this one is a little childish at times, but never loses intrest you always want to find out what's going to happen and trust me I know this because the first day I started watching this I stayed up really late and then the next day and so on. It is so hard to stop myself from going on to watch the next one because there is always a cliff hanger. Like come on. It's not nice to keep teenagers up that late when school is fixing to start and I'm supposed to be going to bed early-ish. Amu is so indecisive at times on who she likes, but if I was her I would be to. Then there is her gaurdian Characters they are all who she wants to be, but she is trying to find out how can she be all three and who she really wants to be. What is her true self. Everyone at school thinks she's so cool, but really she's a shy girl just like everyone else and she always says things that make her look cool because she gets nervous. Besides Amu there is her sister Ami, Tadase, Yaya, Iktuo and many more other awesome characters. So even though it's long and I am still working on it if you haven't seen it it's worth a try.  

The next one Aimee told me to watch was

Squid Girl
*Now while this is a manga I don't think it'savaliable in the U.S.
Squid Girl, a girl from the sea who possesses squid-like tentacles, vows to invade mankind as revenge for its pollution of the ocean. Her first task is to make the Lemon beach house, owned by the Aizawa siblings, her base of operations. However, when she accidentally breaks a hole in their wall, she is forced to work as a waitress to pay off the damages, although she soon comes to think of them as her friends and vice versa. 

 My thoughts:

I watched only the first half of the first episode. I wasn't really fond of it, but I think after I finish Shugo Chara I am going to give it another try. If you like Comical and funny Anime like Aimee you'll like this one because she has been making jokes every since she's seen this one so I'll probably finish it so I can find out what she means.Who knows it might turn out to be great :)

Okay well that's it for these few Anime\Manga. A lot of my friends(and most of my school) are into Anime and I might watch some of the ones they told me to watch if so I'll probably do another one of these that way I have things to post about instead of leaving nothing on the blog.

Have you ever watched Anime or read manga? If so what is your favorite Anime or Manga? If not are you willing to give it a try why\why not? What do you reccomend I watch\read next?
