Fall 2021 Collection and What I’ll be watching

Fall is slowly coming into view and honestly It’s my favorite season, its when I get to wear jeans and my favorite Jumpers!

But enough with the outfits; we’re here to check out the Fall anime lineup! I’m curious as to how many of the items on my list I’ll really watch, wanna know what’s coming out from October December then head to AniChart

1. Kimetsu no Yaiba: Yuukaku-hen

Release Date: Unconfirmed

Need I say more than I will never miss the second season of Demon slayer!

Not much is known from the season 2 trailer but what we do know, the second season will be centered around the Sound Hashira Tengen Uzui and that this anime will take place just after the film.

2. JoJo no Kimyou na Bouken: Stone Ocean

Release Date: December 2021

JoJo: Stone Ocean Introduces the 21st century Jostar Jolyne Cujoh.

Jolyne is the only female “JoJo” to date, and the daughter of Jotaro Kujo. I strongly advise anyone interested in watching Stone Ocean to first watch JoJo’s Bizzare Adventures because there is a lot of backstory to this anime.

Watching this trailer made me remember why I love this anime in the first place, I’m looking forward to see what this Jostar does to amaze me.

3. Isekai Shoukudou 2

Release Date: October 2nd

Besides my favorite food show which is obviously Shokugeki no Soma, this comes in a close second, I remember watching the first season and falling in love with the light hearted anime I could watch once a week.

Each episode of this show introduced a different character to the Restaurant from another world and it was just so cute to see fantasy characters fall in love with Japanese Cuisine.

I wonder what type of food we will be introduced to this time?

4. Sankaku Mado no Sotogawa wa Yoru

Release Date: October 3rd

WHY IS THIS NOT A YAOI!!! (Rant over haha)

The minute I watched this trailer a while ago, I was drawn in, and it wasn’t because of the storyline or the hot characters but it was the dynamic between the Main characters and this wasn’t categorized as Yaoi (how is that possible).

Putting that aside, I’m really interested in what this anime will bring to the table this Fall.

5. Lupin the 3rd: Part VI

Release Date: October 10th

Lupin the dark horse of anime, It has been running since 1971!

Even longer than Detective Conan.

Tony Oliver is my Lupin voice, and I’m eager to see what Lupin has in store for us this time around. Part 5 was wonderful, and that’s why I’m looking forward to Part 6.

6. Blue Period

Release Date: September 25th

Blue Period is my dark horse this season, not much is known about Blue Period other than it will be releasing on Netflix in 2 days time.

Unfortunately if the first episode isn’t interesting enough I will be dropping it.

7. The way of the House Husband Part 2

Release Date: October 7th

When it comes to the Way of the House Husband, you may either love it or hate it; it demands a very certain taste when it comes to the animation, which is very much in the form of a comic book; reviews say different things by different people.

I absolutely adore this series, and while the fact that each episode is just 15 minutes long and there are only 5 episodes is upsetting, there is something about this anime that I just can’t get enough of.

(Maybe tatsu’s voice actor Kenjirou Tsuda πŸ˜‰ )

Anime Discussion: 5 Anime I’m currently watching

Art of Anime here!

As an otaku blogger, I write reviews about anime and manga.

If you’re new to my blog then welcome, and if you’re not thank you for your support and I will continue to do what I love best, writing about anime.

With that all out of the way.

These are the anime’s I’m currently watching at this moment in time πŸ˜€

1. Mairimashita! Iruma-kun 2nd Season

I am very conflicted about this show but I wont go into any details (Review coming for the first season very soon)

The first half of the first season I wasn’t too keen on but as we slowly moved into episode 6 and 7 it got real interesting to see the main character in such a different light, not sure where its trying to go but I have some theories.

I will continue to watch Iruma kun just for that one reason…

2. Isekai Maou to Shoukan Shoujo no Dorei Majutsu Ξ©

I watched the first season in dub, and then when season 2 was announced I was so frickin happy

As It can be considered an Isakai and fantasy, I love the inner turmoil of the main character, on the outside he has to be strong to be considered a demon lord from another world, but on the inside he is a timid Japanese male who never made his mark on the world and was a shut in who just liked to play games.

Also could be considered as a small harem but I find it the charm of this great show.

3. Tantei wa Mou, Shindeiru

The Detective is already dead. One of my favorite shows this summer.

As it nears its 6th episode this week, I find the plot quite fascinating and I love the humor of the main jaded character.

If you haven’t given this anime a chance yet, please do, it is a show mixed between the present and the past and I have a feeling, more episodes down the line its going to get even more interesting!

4. Boruto: Naruto Next Generations

Every Sunday is a joy watching this show, as the show comes into the final arc (Which I probably have a lot of theories about..)

Boruto Uzumaki is the son of Naruto and I hear on the internet that fans of the Top 3 anime Naruto hate this show, the fact is is nothing compared to the prequel show but In my opinion, I absoutley love this show!

The children are great and it’s actually quite nice to see that Boruto is nothing like his father in terms of power, he is his own person and I respect that so much.

5. Detective Conan

Now, everyone should know by now, If you’ve been reading my posts long enough, I am obsessed with Detective Conan, as of right now I have probably only watched 45% of the 1000th+ episodes it currently has, but I have scoured the internet for the the interesting cases, the important ones (that are directly to the heart of the plot) and the ones I found the most appealing.

Every Saturday since the 1000th episode came out, i have continued watching this series, as I am very interested in seeing what happens next because I have a small feeling (some shit is about to go down!)

And that is it folks! That’s for joining and maybe leave a comment bellow and give some recommendations of anime I could watch next!

Anime Discussion: My favorite Couples/Ships

As one of my favorite anime’s end and the guy gets the girl, I wondered which are my favorite Couples and ships

Small disclaimer: This is in now way rated from 1 to 10 its just counting all of them.

so here you go!

1. Couple: Kyo and Tohru from Fruit Basket

Kyo Sohma and Tohru Honda

The remake is finally finished and I defiantly cried into my dinner while watching the final episode.

We knew back in the day when we watched the original that we weren’t getting the whole story so people went to read the manga and ending up spoiling it for all of us by telling the voice actors that they are both married.

Watching the love between these two grow was a definite privilege to get a story such as fruits basket, to me it is one of the greatest anime’s of all times.

Natsuki Takaya is simply a great manga artist

2. Couple: Usui and Misaki from Maid Sama

Usui Takumi and Misaki Ayuzawa

Usui and Misaki, even though only having one season they deserve a round of applause as I have read the manga because I see no new season in the near future.

it’s actually quite a funny and sweet relationship between Usui and Misaki but it’s nice that he keeps her secret that she is a maid, at the end of the season, they confess that they like each other.

Since Maid Sama came out quite a while ago so Takumi and Ayuzawa are a couple anime lovers know and love.

3. Ship: Ash and Eiji from Banana Fish

Ash Lynx and Eiji Okumura

Banana Fish came out in 2018 and Ash and Eiji became the talk of the town slowly taking over the ship of Yuri and Viktor.

These two are adorable and their story was very tragic but it was lovely to see the two friends connect, and I was not ready for the ending they gave us, these two deserved better.

4. Couple: Asuna and Kirito from Sword Art Online

Kazuto Kirigaya and Asuna Yuuki

Kirito and Asuna are a well-known couple in anime, even though many people hate on sword art online, I actually like it and in turn, I love these two as Partners, Husband and wife and Boyfriend and Girlfriend, these two are just the cutest pair ever!!

5. Ship: Natsu and Lucy from Fairy Tail

Natsu Dragneel and Lucy Heatfilia

NATSU AND LUCY have always been in my heart ever since I first started watching fairy tail back in the day, these two were the main act and will forever be in my heart!

6. Ship: Gajeel and Levy from Fairy Tail

Gajeel Redfox and Levy McGarden

These two became a couple at the end of the final season but they aren’t considered official in the eyes of the author, Gajeel confessed his love to Levy as he thought he was dying, these broke my heart watching them two drift apart.

There reunion was very beautiful

7. Ship: Kogami and Akane from Psycho-Pass

Kogami Shinya and Akane Tsunemori

These two are an unusual pairing for the anime community but Kogami and Akane were a very good pair when working together.

Throughout the season Akane slightly changes as she gets closer to Kogami, sometimes we asks ourselves, was it healthy for Akane to meet Kogami in the first place, I say no but when shipping them together, I’d say they are the most adult pairing I’ve shipped.

8. Couple: Takeo and Rinko from My Love story

Takeo Gouda and Rinko Yammato

I hate pure romance anime’s but there is something about my love story that there is still humanity left in the world for the oddest couple to become one of the best love story’s out there for me.

If you haven’t watched this series yet, Go do so!!

9. Ship: Soul and Maka from Soul Eater

Soul Evans and Maka Albarn

Maka and Soul. Weapon and meister.

Their wavelength must be in sync to work together so in some ways there is some level of commitment between them both.

they worry about each other, there are scenes I could watch over and over again as they protect each other from evil, They are concerned for each other, as they are connected I would have loved for them to be together in the end.

10. Couple: Naruto and Hinata from Naruto

Need I say more.

The more I watch Boruto episodes, I see Hinata support Naruto even though he’s never around or misses the children’s birthdays.

they support each other in many ways and I will continue to support them for just as long I see them on the screen.

Anime Discussion: The Sailor Guardian I relate to the most

The Latest sailor moon movie just came out and people are raving about it! I am not the biggest fan on the series but I cannot fault the beautiful work that went into it. Sailor Moon has been a big part of the anime community for many years and there have been some anime’s trying to follow the hype of this type of anime such as Tokyo mew mew and failed miserably which only had 52 episodes but is going for a re-boot sometime in the near future.

Tokyo mew Mew

(But honestly I love the music better in Tokyo mew mew than sailor moon)

While watching the latest Sailor moon movie, I asked myself, who am I most like?

well I am…

Sailor Mercury

Why do I think I relate to Miss Ami Mizuno the most? Well there are a few reasons.

I love learning. Unlike Ami I’m not the smartest person around but I love learning, even though I know about my career path now, doesn’t mean I knew when I was 16 and heading for college. I loved most subjects in school mostly English and History, I went to college and did several different things including arts and IT/programming, I am now 22 and I feel like I’m still learning a little by little, about politics, more about my country’s history and other country’s history’s, I am constantly learning and I love it.

I love reading! You can always find me with my nose stuck in a book or a manga, if you came to my home you would see the mountain of books I have bought over the years, my favorite authors are Cassandra Clare and Derek Landy.

I’m strategic not a fighter. I have been on this earth for a very long time and yes I have gotten myself in my fair share of disagreements with others but Instead of fighting like other women with pride do, I settle it by using strategies, especially when talking with a very angry customer, I have my ways of talking them down, even if it may be my fault to begin with!

I was a very shy person until I met a certain person or may I say certain people, At the age of 18 I moved away from my home town and moved down to south where I lived and worked at one of the biggest holiday camps in the UK, If it wasn’t for my leaders in my venue I’d still be the most awkwardest human beings ever, I would have never become comfortable in myself and now I can go into anything with a smile on my face, never feeling nervous ever again.

and that is it!

Comment bellow which sailor guardian you think you are!

Anime Discussion: LGBTQ Couples in Anime

In Anime you can pretty much get any crazy story if you look hard for it enough, Today I look at the LGBTQ couples that anime has offered us over the years.

Recently since I have had time to think about myself and what I identity as, I came to a conclusion and I think that is halfly because of the couples I resonate with.

Haruka and Michiru from Sailor Moon

If anyone knows anime, they will know of the Sailor moon Guardians, especially these two Solar System Sailor Guardians Haruka and Michiru.

Haruka identifies as both a man and a woman which is why this couple makes so much sense. Since Michiru and Haruka are one of the earliest examples of a lesbian couple in anime and manga, and Naoko Taekuchi has been upfront in her affirmation that the pair are a relationship, Sailor Moon did a lot to rock the boat with their romance.

Yuri and Victor from Yuri!! on ICE

A couple of years ago we got Yuri!! on ICE. I absoutley loved this series.

Yuri has been a major fan of Victor’s since he was a child, and his skating has profoundly influenced him. Yuri’s childhood dream was to be able to compete with Victor on the ice on an equal footing and eventually surpass the Russian. Yuri’s infatuation for Victor prompted him to acquire a poodle similar to Victor’s and name it after him.

After seeing Yuri flawlessly repeat his free skate, ‘Stay Close to Me,’ Victor enters Yuri’s life.
Victor started out as a physical trainer for Yuri, but after witnessing how his emotions affected his skating, he made an attempt to get to know him on a more intimate level. Yuri was first wary of Victor and kept his distance from him, but as time passed, he warmed up to him.

Yuri and Victor’s close relationship resulted into a most heartwarming scene of exchanging rings and they are now presumed engaged.

Touya and Yukito- Cardcapture Sakura

It was only when Clear card came out a few years ago that I learned about these two. Touya and Yukito have had this chemistry for a very long time and all of the girls go crazy with the mention of these two.

Touya and Yukito’s friendship is regularly shown throughout the series. Touya bestows his abilities on Yue in order to save Yukito’s life. Yukito eventually confesses his love for Touya to Sakura after Touya saves his life, referring to Touya as his “number one.”

Due to censorship, all overt references to Yukito’s homosexual relationship with Touya were omitted from the North American Cardcaptors adaptation, which I find disgraceful.

Misaki and Usagi from Junjou Romantica

Misaki meets Akihiko for the first time when he returns home to find Akihiko clinging to Takahiro Takahashi, and Takahiro introduces the two. Misaki goes to Akihiko’s house the next day since aforementioned person was to be his tutor because Misaki had very terrible grades and would not be able to get into the university that Takahiro was going to before their parents’ deaths.

He has difficulty recognizing that he loves Akihiko because of his hesitant character, despite the fact that his actions suggest that he is deeply in love with his caretaker and easily carried away by his whims. Misaki gradually opens up and becomes less shy in their connection throughout the anime/manga.

Ritsuka and Mafuyu from Given

Ritsuka was on his way to his sleeping location when they first saw each other at school.
The nap location, however, had already been claimed by Mafuyu, who was fast sleeping.
Mafuyu gradually awoke and sat up straight, the two of them staring at one other without saying anything. Mafuyu immediately stepped to the side and offered him a seat.
Ritsuka spotted Mafuyu’s broken guitar after exchanging a few words and asked Mafuyu to have it fixed. When Mafuyu realised it may be, he asked Ritsuka to mend the strings before asking him to teach him how to play the guitar.

Their relationship bloomed over the course of the series and took over the top spot for cutest gay couple from the raining champions Yuri and Victor.

Detective Conan’s best cases

So just recently the previous post to this hit 150 views and I thought to myself what made it so popular?

So today I give you some of the best cases of Detective Conan.

Episode 521-523 Murderer!, Shinichi Kudo

Heiji takes Kazuha, Kogoro, Ran, and Conan to East Okuho after receiving a letter from Makoto Okuda addressed to Shinichi.

The letter tells Shinichi to meet with him so he could justify Shinichi’s deduction mistake from his past investigation. Upon arrival, the group discovers that Makoto has been missing for over a year and that everyone hates Shinichi because of this said mistake.

Conan recovering from a nasty cold separates from the group and heads to the meeting place disclosed in the letter and is eventually trapped inside a shed by an unknown culprit. Conan realizes he took the antidote to the APTX 4869 instead of his cold medication and flees through a window, falling into the river before reverting to Shinichi.

When Conan/Shinichi is found, he apparently has lost his memories. The villagers assume Shinichi was cursed by the Shiragami, a forest god, resulting in his amnesia. Heiji finds out from Haibara that is Shinichi retained his amnesia after revering back to Conan in 24 hours, his identity would be revealed.

Heiji discovers that Shinichi was summoned to investigate the mayor’s and his wife’s murders a year ago, which were determined to be a forced double suicide . Misato Kawauchi, a journalist, threatens to expose Shinichi’s secret unless he confesses to faking his amnesia. Kawauchi is discovered with a stab wound the next day, with Shinichi standing behind her holding a knife.

Is Shinichi the Murderer?

Episode 616-621 Holmes’ Revelation

Kogoro, Ran, and Conan come across a cat belonging to a wealthy British woman who agrees to pay for their trip to London so Kogoro can tell her friends about his detective adventures. Haibara gives Conan two antidotes to the APTX 4869 for the trip and the return trip to get past airport screening.

A young boy named Apollo Glass approaches the Sherlock Holmes museum and demands to see Holmes’ Apprentice in order to decipher a code that will prevent a murder. Conan proposes that he solve the puzzle by impersonating Holmes’ Apprentice. Apollo reveals that a mysterious man gave him a note with seven coded riddles and a warning that if they are not solved, someone in London will die. They hear from the cops that a large number of children have received the same code, which Conan interprets as a large number of people would perish. While attempting to decipher the riddles, Conan and Agasa isolate themselves from the rest of the party.

Can Conan, Agasa and the rest of the party solve the puzzles before it is too late?

Episode 669-670 The Dark Tower’s Hidden Treasure

The Detective Boys meet Nanami Kyoudou, whose grandfather, Seitarou Kyoudou is the one who built “The Black Tower”, rumored to have no entrance and treasure hidden within. Later, they visit her house, where Nanami Kyoudou’s mother, Momoe Kyoudou has apparently been pushed off of the Black Tower trying to find the treasure within it.

The Detective Boys explore the building, which is packed with various illusions, even more determined to find an entrance. Ayumi and Haibara need to use the toilet. However, after Haibara instructs Ayumi to proceed, she falls through a secret passageway concealed behind a bathroom mirror. Ayumi immediately informs the boys of Haibara’s disappearance, and they begin an investigation of the restroom; as a result, Conan notices wind coming from the mirror, but is unable to enter the passageway behind it.

Conan is alerted by Mitsuhiko that there is a storeroom next door, and the Detective Boys rush next door to check the storeroom, convinced that there is another entrance. They find two mirrors there: one large one attached to the wall (though it appears to be leaning against it) and the other smaller one on a desk. Ayumi discovers that the smaller mirror is covered in the same strong perfume Momoe Kyoudou is wearing, inadvertently flips the mirror, and the large mirror Conan was investigating slides down to reveal a masking tape-covered entrance.

Can the Detective boys find Haibara, solve the mystery of the tower and how Momoe died from falling from a tower that has no entrance?

Episode 701-704 The Jet-Black Mystery Train

After Haibara’s identity is slowly found out by the black organization (Vermouth who already knows and her new partner Bourbon) the detective boys and party head the jet-black mystery train experience.

The Detective Boys discover that the train normally only runs once a year, but that this year will be different because Jirokichi Suzuki wants to run it a month later in an effort to lure Kaitou Kid out once more. Sonoko also intends to leave her love letter for Kid in the train car, where he will be able to read it. Masumi Sera appears out of nowhere and expresses her interest in the deduction quiz that will take place on the train.

The mystery game begins and the detective boys are on the case while Haibara is trying to keep herself hidden from prying eyes,

When Scar Akai leaves one of the rooms, Haibara, who is slightly behind Conan’s party, follows them half-hardheartedly. Scar Akai, however, who is dressed in a formal outfit, ignores her and continues walking in the opposite direction. Haibara manages to catch a glimpse of him.

Noticing something is wrong with the mystery game that is supposed to be some harmless fun ends up going horribly wrong as a murder takes place.

Can the murder be solved and can Haibara save herself from impending doom as the black organization close in

Episode 927-928 The Scarlet School Trip

Shinichi’s school trip to Kyoto approaches and he finally convinces Haibara to give him the antidote so he can go but she gives him a condition, he has to wait 8 hours after the back shrinking before taking another one, Enlisting Hattori with his help, Shinichi is able to go on his class trip.

Shinichi and Ran secretly hope that Ran will give an answer to Shinichi’s love declaration back in London.

Shinichi meets Keiko, an actress and an old friend of his mother’s who stays in the same hotel as Shinichi and his class, along with some university friends with whom she filmed a blockbuster centred on a tengu and other monsters. She requests Shinichi’s assistance in deciphering a cryptic code written and sent by their late friend Michio Dekuri, who committed suicide a long time ago.
Nishiki, the film’s screenwriter, obtained the code along with red aralia leaves, which are native to Kyoto.

Not even having time to solve the clue Shinichi gets a text from Keiko, telling him to come to them straight away, after arriving with Sera they find Nishiki dead in his hotel room and that blood is splattered over the ceiling, along with footprints, as Shinichi becomes close to becoming Conan again he switches places with Hattori and goes to sleep leaving Masumi to help the police.

In the morning Hattori and Shinichi wake up and head back to the crime scene after finding out something was wrong, when they arrive Agata San is in trouble and when they arrive they see a massive tengu on the ceiling, Agata proceeds to throw his ashtray at it, it bursts into flames and disappears.

How do these cases relate to the Tengu film, Will ran confess to Shinichi, and what awaits the rest of the school trip?

Anime Discussion: Relating to Fruits basket on a Personal Level


Please read at your own digression, I am touching on very raw subjects and respect every word written

Thank you)

Here I am re-watching the last season of Fruits Basket in order to brace myself for the final season and actually see the manga’s endings.

We all think of Fruits Basket as a fantastic Supernatural/romance/slice of life anime with fantastic scenes and voice acting in both the sub and dub versions, but as I near the end of Season 2 Episode 10, I find myself relating to Fruits Basket on a personal level in more ways than one.

Unfortunately, as I turn 23 this year, I’m not sure I’ve ever been in love with someone other than my family, so I’m not sure I can relate to characters like Kyo and Tooru or Haru and Rin.
I’m referring to my underlying sense of self-worth, as well as the future I see myself having as the members of the Sohma family, enslaved by the curse that binds them to Akito.

The Past

Growing up in the United Kingdom was certainly not the best childhood one could ask for, but I’m confident that if I had grown up in America and gone through what I have, I would not be the same person I am now.

However, since the main story of Fruits Basket is set in Japan and its cultures, you begin to see the deeper realities about how Japanese children grow up. I believe I did some research after finding that child abuse cases in Japan reached a new high of 194,000 in 2019.

Tooru Honda, the gentle spirit, the spaciest character I’ve ever seen, it all adds to her charm, but what you do get to see in the newer Fruits Basket adaptation is Tooru’s true past and what it was like for her growing up.

Now I bet your all sitting here reading this thinking, Is she trying to say what I think she’s saying, your not half off…

Akito and Yuki

Growing up, both of my parents worked, which meant I was either entrusted to someone else to look after me or I was locked in my room with nowhere to go, knowing that if I asked for support, I would never get it. Looking back, I can’t say all of my accomplishments have been due to my parents’ guidance; instead, it was me getting myself out of the darkness and into the light.

When I was 12, I became a full-time caregiver for my mother, which didn’t bother me because I didn’t have much of a social life, to begin with, but it only got harder when I approached my senior year of high school when my mother could barely walk without a handy cap, my brother brought trouble to our door every day, and my father left without helping us find somewhere else to live before we were evicted from our family home.

Obviously when you leave school in the UK your 16 and sometimes you don’t know what you want to do with your life, When the fruits basket characters were asked to write out career forms for Parents day, Tooru wanted to work straight away, Yuki had no idea, and Kyo knew he’d never get the future he wanted or deserved.

That year, I lost my grandfather, and I’d had no idea what I wanted to be since I was 16. When I was 18, I lost my mother’s cousin, who was very close to me, and she didn’t even get to see me work my tail off by moving away and working for one of the UK’s largest holiday camps.

I recently lost my grandmother’s sister, and before she died, I was able to share with her my life goals, including the desire to collaborate with photographers and produce exhibits, as well as travel the world meeting artists who make my soul tremble.

The Future

Even though I have a life goal, I am still thinking about the past, unable to look forward despite having that goal.

When I watch episodes 14 and 15, my heart breaks as I see the characters contemplate the future and the obstacles they must overcome to get there.

Tooru considers working right after high school, but those who know her know that she did so to help her mother, Kyoko. However, Kyoko is no longer alive, and Tooru has been living for herself, not that she realises it.

She supports everyone around her by making their day by smiling, everyone of the Sohma’s slowly changes by knowing Tooru and knowing something other than the cruel future that awaits them with Akito.

I lived for my mother while I worked as a caregiver for her. When I graduated from high school and began college, I began to develop my own life, complete with a social life, friends, and a hobby. It was difficult to strike a balance between the two, particularly when my health began to deteriorate.

I moved away when I was 18, leaving my mother to fend for herself, and she still doesn’t like it four years later, and I’m still guilty about it. So when I hear Akito talking to Tooru about how their lives belong to him, it brings up so many emotions in me that I feel compelled to confront them. I’ve begun counselling and it’s really helping.

Hearing that my father believes I will fail in life, that I will be a disappointment, and that I will amount to nothing, I honestly believe that is true for the most part, but ever since I’ve started to think differently, just as Yuuki has taken on the position of Student Council president, we’ve both tried, stumbling through days at a time.

As Season 3 approaches, I’m really excited to see things unfold as Shigure likes to say. Even though Fruits basket brings up so many of these feelings I definitely know that the show is bringing out the emotions to make it a fantastic anime.

Thank you for reading!

Anime Discussion: The Anime Characters I absolutely despise

Recently on Twitter Karandi asked “Is there an anime character you would want to punch” and my first response is Shinji Matou from the fate franchise so here is a list of Anime characters I absolutely despise!

1. Shinji Matou from Fate/Stay night Series

If you haven’t seen Fate/Stay Night, you haven’t seen this little fucker who can do whatever he wants because of his Matou family name, and I’m actually grateful for what happened to him in the end.

Shinji Matou is a high school character in the anime Fate/stay Night, and if you’re familiar with the game, you’ll know that Shinji becomes a master of Rider during the first route of the anime/game, despite the fact that he essentially steals the master position from his sister, who is unable to do magecraft on this side of the plot.

Shinji resents Sakura for being the Matou heir and regularly abuses her, both physically and sexually, in addition to being a total knobhead.

2. Shou Tucker from Fullmetal alchemist

If your an anime fan and you haven’t watched fullmetal alchemist (THEN STOP READING THIS AND GO WATCH πŸ˜‰ )

Shou Tucker also known as the Sewing-Life Alchemist, arrives on the anime around about episode 4 in Brother hood and I don’t think I need to explain why I absolutely hate this guy but if you don’t, This man was psychopathic enough to merge is OWN daughter with her pet dog only get his state license again!

See I don’t really have to explain πŸ˜‰

3. Adam from SK8 Infinity

Recently we got this anime called ‘SK8 Infinity’ and The character called ‘Adam’ came on the screen voiced by the Japanese VA that voiced Dio Brando in JoJo Bizarre adventures and I went, oooh! I’m going to like him!

But then he started insulting some of my favorite characters and he hurt one of my favorite characters and then I wanted to smack him real hard, so atm He’s on my despise list!!

4. Akito Sohma from Fruits Basket

If you’ve ever watched this anime you will know of Akito Sohma, when we got the very first season over 10 years ago so It was nice that we’ve got more screen time with the character and get to know the story a bit more

but now that I’ve watched it I want him… to feel the pain his family did with what he… did to them, out of the Sohma family the ones I want to cry for the most are Rin and Hattori

I honestly don’t think Akito should of got the ending they deserved… its just dam right painful

5. Ragyou Kiryuin from kill la kill

Kill la Kill is a hard anime to get into, nonetheless I have watched all 26 episodes, and when you try world domination through clothing you’ve got to be a mad genius but Ragyou Kiryuin is nothing but pure evil, this woman her cruelty and greed have been exposed as even more heinous, as she has been fondling (and even sexually assaulting) his daughters, as she merely enjoys dominating someone or something.

Needless to say I’m glad she got the punishment she deserved.

First Impressions of Fruits Basket S3 EP1


I will in no way try and spoil this first episode since not everyone has been able to watch it yet)

We got a early release of Fruits basket season 3 and I couldn’t be any happier!

Funimation’s ADR Director Caitlin Glass has done a fabulous job with the remake with the returning cast and brand new cast bringing the new characters that we’ve only met in the manga to life.

This season we meet Akito’s mother Ren and flashbacks of Akito’s Father voiced by Katelyn Barr and Chad Cline.


Last season we left of with Kureno and Tohru talking in the park, Tohru wanted Kureno to have a copy of the video of the school play they did, Kureno returns the disk to Tohru staying he couldn’t leave Akito’s side because he was a she.

We learned that Kureno ‘s curse had been broken and because of the past many things kept him by Akito’s side.


Season 3’s episode 1 returns to the Tohru and Kureno scene in the park, they continue there talk continues and Tohru learns more about the curses and Akito’s past.

If your an avid Fruits baskets fan you will know how sensitive Tohru is and the information she is told doesn’t sit right with her, this episode gives you information, there is no real drastic change and that gives the rest of the season to answer the questions you have.

I’m super excited to see what the rest of the season will bring.

Anime Discussion: Celebrating Detective conan’s 1000 episode

January 8th 1996, Detective Conan (cased closed) was released on screen, this anime has celebrated its 25th year just this year! And as of today It has reached its 1000th episode and as an anime community and it has to a very big achievement.

This April detective conan will release its 24th film that I’m so excited to see once it has its subtitles and is released.

Unfortunately with so many episodes, I have probably only watched 20% of this series but what I have watched is all 23 movies already released, and I think that is a real achievement for me πŸ˜‰

If anyone isn’t aware of this show ill give you a little synopsis

Shinichi Kudo (in english he was named Jimmy kudo) is a highschool detective in Tokyo, Japan and when on an non official date with his childhood sweetheart when he sees a deal go down between men in black and goes to investigate. He doesn’t see one of the men’s partner come up behind him and knock him out, to keep him from talking he is forced to take a drug to kill him, instead of killing him it shrinks him back into a little boy.

To keep his identity a secret, he adopts the name Conan Edagawa in relation to his love of sherlock holmes and goes to live with his Childhood sweetheart Mori, Ran (Rachel Moore) and her father, whom is a private detective Mori, Kogoro (Richard Moore).

To find the men in black he basically makes Mori, Kogoro a famous detective and in just a short time makes him The great detective even though he’s a lazy drunk.

Since this isn’t a review of this fantastic anime, I won’t give any more details if you want to go and check it out.


This anime has some very interesting characters such as The detective boys Ayumi (amy), Genta (George), Mitsuhiko (mitch) and later on around 130 episodes Ai joins the gang, and she isn’t all that she seems to be, along with Shinichi’s next door neighbour Professor Agasa.

Next we have the other highschool detective but from Osaka Hattori Heji and his childhood sweetheart Kazuha Tomya and both of their fathers are high ranking police offers in Osaka.

We have the many detectives Kogoro, Ran and Conan meet on their many adventures, my favourites have to be Fumimaro Ayanokoji from the Kyoto police department and Sango Yokomizo from the Shizuoka Police District even though Inspector Yokomizo relies too much on Mori’s reasoning and doesn’t really think for himself as for our main Inspector from the Tokyo department Inspector Megure who used to work with Kogoro Mori gets annoyed when he’s there at the scene and basically solves it for them (he basically calls Mori, Kogoro a Shinigami which translates to a bringer of death).

And with this anime being located in Japan because of the nature of the story we have many agencies (FBI, National Police Agency, CIA and MI6) apart from the storyline and produced some fantastic characters such as Shuichi Akai, Jodie Sterling and Rei Fruya.

But even if we have so many beloved characters there is the organisation who tried to Kill Shinichi who take on the names of alcohol to keep their identities a secret the main ones being Gin and Vodka and a little while later we meet Vermouth (and she’s her own blog just on her own haha)

We even gone through half of the fantastic characters in this show including Kaito Kid a famous thief who even has his own show

There are many different cases Detective conan has gone over the years such as

  • The impossible cases
  • Kidnapping cases
  • Blackmailing cases
  • Locked room murders cases
  • Poisoned people cases
  • Attempted murder cases
  • Kaito Kid cases
  • Dying messages cases

and many, many more

If I was given the choice of my favourite cases? Well they’d have to be…

  • Episode 68-70, The Night Baron case
  • Episode 558-561, The Mansion of Death and the Red Wall
  • Episode Episode 779-783, The Scarlet Return

I already have my favourite 5 films here

My 5 Favourite Detective Conan Movies

When an anime goes as long such as this you wonder if it’s actually wondered if it’s worth it to watch it?

I have only watched 20% of the show already, I feel like I’ve accomplished in understanding this anime and the reasons behind the artist’s idea and how much love he’s put into the characters and the story.

At 1000 episodes you wonder if there is anything else left for this show to give?

We’ll I’m not sure, but I am so excited to find out at the moment the manga is at 1047 chapters so were close to the manga, and we wonder what happens if we catch up before more chapters can be released?

Now that’s something to think about πŸ˜‰
