Deadman Wonderland 6: FUCK YEAH!!!

Warning: The World has not ended yet. So, taking over the world is still possible. Long live The Führer! Heil Thaivu22! After some a lame-ass trip to Toronto, I really needed my weekly dose of bloody violence with Deadman Wonderland’s newest episode.

Summary of ep:
– Minatsuki is cute
– Cute Minatsuki is evil
– Evil Minatsuki is hot!!
– She swears
– She’s perfect
– The lullaby has ended

The show revolved around Ganta’s newest opponent, Minatsuki Takami aka, as you can see, Yoh’s beloved little sister. The introduction for her character just came in this episode perfectly in my opinion. Many anime would require 1 or 2 episodes to explain a character with a background story before doing anything cool with it. However, Deadman Wonderland not only perfectly explained her character, it managed to do an acceptable background in less than an episode and integrated it during the fight. Have her trick Ganta with some puppy eyes and then backstab him at the start of the match. In addition, do she need a full flashback? No, only one 30-sec scene to explain why is fucked up in the head, another short scene to tell why is she in prison and one brother to tell why she is a liar (lol) were used for the character development. What was important in the episode is that it was simply fulfilling enough. No pointless filler. The execution was just great.

lol

The Proper Way how to speak to a sis-con brother

The proper way to handle your brother

I simply laughed out loud when Ganta was just playing right at the hands of Minatsuki. Ganta tried getting another chick after Shirou and that didn’t go well. Minatsuki simply handled him like a toy. All the swearing from Minatsuki is simply comedy material for me…actually, Psycho-Hummingbird is my type of girl 🙂 She’s having an orgasm whenever she inflicts pain to others. If her brother can’t make her cum, he’s better off as a human shield (lol).

HOT!!!!

Fucking HOT

I fucking agree

Damn

Mistery continues on the show with Shiro being The Wretched Egg. It would seem like the Vice Warden, Tamaki, is on opposing force to the Warden who happens to be a super skinny old fart and who seems to know Ganta’s family. Tamaki wants to control Deadman Wonderland and contain the Wretched Egg while the Warden apparently wants her go loose. Interestingly, it seems that the warden is trolling Tamaki who believes that the old man can’t move. This prision is just a container of conspiracy between everyone and anyone. I really think it will be fun to see what happens next.

The Warden 0.o

Very Entertaining Episode: 8.5/10. I really hope this series goes for a 24-26 episode run. With apparent violence and sexual language, chances aren’t that high, but you never know.

Deadman Wonderland ep 5: Shiro Rules!!!

This is the first anime-related post ever since the change to the Vertigo theme. Plus, I need to test some formats. So what’s anime is best to talk about? Well, Deadman Wonderland episode 5 is out and I’m having fun watching the series. Violence and Death is always fun for a sadist.

Seriously, the opening song is pretty addicting.

Warning: I do not guarantee the post is spoiler-free

Deadman Wonderland ep 2: A sadistic review

I’m going to talk about the second episode of Deadman Wonderland, or at the very least the second half of the episode. The Gore The Merrier. 🙂

Warning 1: You’ll learn how much I don’t care about the survival of humanity.

Warning 2: Don’t go calling 911 on me.

Warning 3: No, I do not need psychological care.

Did I ever say that I enjoy watching sadistic stuff as long they’re not spooky or monster horror movies. Deadman Wonderland just fits right into my taste. If the main focuses of episode one was conspiracy and corruption, then, the big theme of episode 2 is sadism. Is it really fun to watch criminals die during a race that involves running through balancing scythes, arrows and bullets shot by mascots, trap holes containing spikes, electric currents or poisonous gas? I, as a watcher, loved it. Deadman Wonderland tries to show the animalistic nature of our so-called “civilized” race. Are humans really inside their soul sadistic? I know I am a little bit sadistic (lol). We, human beings, are just animals with a bigger complexity in our physiology and psychology due to the evolution (from the first Homo-sapiens to the beings we are today). We become born into this world. We eat and sleep. When our time comes, we die. Our race is bound to be extinct one day or another whether you believe it or not.

Take a picture of the killed

LOL: This is obviously a place to take your girlfriend to a date

Let’s get to our main protagonist, Ganta Igarashi, who starts to learn the rules of the dynamically sadistic prison, Deadman Wonderland. He learns that all inmates on the death-sentence are constantly administered through their collar a special poison and thus must eat an antidote candy every 3 days in order to leave. You get everything, such as antidote candies, food, clothes and even prison time off, through “Cast points”. One candy cost 100,000 cast points. God knows how hard it is for the poor kid to acquire that much in less than 3 days. So Ganta must win a special race event to get its 100,000 cast point prize. Poor Ganta befriends Yoh Takami, the dude that got slashed by the great and lovely Chief Guard Makina-sama. It turns out that Yoh is a spy for the warden Tamaki to check out the poor innocent super-powered kid. Hell, Tamaki makes the race at the hardest difficulty level. So, the race is filled with murderous obstacles and traps. For me, it was an amazing comedy race. For others, it would nasty scene containing sick deaths. Yes, I have probably have a sick sense of humour, but you could see the manga author was just trying to make the story so hilarious. The whole thing was made to look silly and dark at the same time. Shiro made the race so funny as she evades the obstacle so easily with a nice smile and she saves Ganta many times while other just falls into their deaths. The crowd was laughing and cheering for the deaths. Mascots are shooting the prisoners with bows and hunting guns. Again, we go back to referring to humans being animals. It’s not abnormal to hunt animals or to display them on a zoo. When silliness mixes with darkness, the end-result becomes something spectacularly amazing as long you separate yourself from the normality of this world. Dang, I miss Kyubey from Madoka Magica already.

LOL Damn

Amazingly Silly

Someone with a common sense

Your death won't be for nothing. It'll be for the fun of the crowd

Is Ganta a good character? I guess he fits the setting of the show. I’ve been adding the word “poor” when i mention Ganta. But, still, at the very least, he’s not a total wimp. He tries to survive while following his own rule in order to prove his innocence. Finally, someone who has a valid reason to fight. I think the most generic and annoying reason to fight for a shounen protagonist is: “I must do the greater good for everyone.” aka the sense of duty. Shounen manga has abusively used Kantian Ethics far too much (lol) to the point that the whole thing becomes unrealistic. On episode 2, Ganta actually acts under common sense! He did whatever to survive: suck up to his own bully and not saving a stranger. At the very least, he’s not an annoying character.

Oh Shit

LOLtastic

From what we’ve seen on the anime, it becomes quite obvious that Shiro is not human (lol). An albino girl who can jump from a big tower and land perfectly with a smile is not human. Beside that, what can we say about her? She’s nuts (lol). It’s as if she doesn’t even notice she’s in a prison. Kana Hanazawa does a good job voicing Shiro with her childish personality.

Deadman Wonder episode 2 (during the 2nd half) was an amazing spectacle to watch. This episode scores a nice 9/10. The show is really addicting. So far, the anime has been faithful to the manga except that the anime didn’t bother to introduce Azami which means that Manglobe doesn’t really expect to make a second season.

Anime Spring Season Impression part 6 (final)

This is the last season first ep impression I’ll do. I’ll try to pick to 2 anime from the entire season for the usual episode reviews. Deadman Wonderland might end up being one of my choices.

Deadman Wonderland

In term of action anime, there is no doubt that this show is the best one you’ll find in this season. You might recognize the similarity of Deadman Wonderland to Eureka 7 as it is from the same manga artist. You have Ganta Higarashi, boy wrongly convicted for murdering his entire classmate, and Shiro, weirdo and childish girl who seems to know Ganta leading to another anime cliché that is the forgotten childhood friendship. A person in red clothes floating in the sky killed Ganta’s every classmates using his blood to destroy them. That person turns some of his blood into a gem and inserts it into Ganta’s chest leaving him alive. Reason why to like this anime: People actually die!! The story is pretty dark, going from the murder of an entire classroom to angry parents beating the shit out of Ganta to the usage of a prison as a zoo attraction. Interestingly, Ganta displays some supernatural powers of his own at the end of the episode. He ends unconsciously up using his own blood as a weapon. I would like to able to use that power (lol)­. I kinda laugh at the poor dude’s shitty situation where he’s being framed by Takami his own lawyer who happened to be the director of the prison. It’s funny how no one had any suspicions on that one. There’s a great deal of conspiration around Tamaki for sure. Considering the anime industry, lately, has had a ton of epic fails when it comes to adapting shounen manga series into anime, I would say that Deadman Wonderland is very well done. The animation is great even though I would like to see less censorship when the show is showing decapitated body parts (lol). As a reader of the manga, I can say this: It gets better! 9.5/10

PS: Try to find Tamaki’s childhood in the ending song. HAHAHA

Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai

A ghost of a deceased girl called Memma is hunting her friend who turned into a hikikomori after her death…ROFL! Jintan, the young hikikomori, seems to be unable, unlike his other friends, to move on in his life. So, Memma wants him to reunite their friends to help realize their wishes. It’s quite an amazingly sad story added with some comedy that involves awkward situations as no one but Jintan can see the girl. Jintan realises his wish is to apoligize to Memma. Memma can still touch things and people, so we know that it’s not imaginary from the poor hikikomori. It’s amazing how his dad doesn’t seem to try making him go out. Don’t expect refreshing characters out of this show. Memma has that amazingly annoying voice. There is this one girl, Anjou, who just fit the tsundere characteristic as she tries to help Jintan (she obviously likes him) but because she acts like a tsundere, Jintan takes her aid as a negatively thing since she’s unable to be “dere”. Awkward friendship…HAHA Awkwardness isn’t the type of comedy I find great but the writing is pretty solid enough to overlook that. It’s a nice charming and touching anime involving the re-built of life and friendship. If you need something to replace Kimi ni Todoke, it’s an anime for you. 8/10

Hyouge Mono

Here is another anime set in the sengoku era. Unlike Sengoku Otome, the show is not bad, but it’s not good. TOTALLY MEDIOCRE! How interesting can it really be to have a messenger of Oda Nobunaga and tea master as your main character. The whole comedy is focused on Furuda Sasuke’s obsession with rare artefacts and fashion mockery. I wanted to go to sleep as the jokes in this show is nearly unfunny. 5/10 but hey, the main character’s moustache gets a 8/10.

Ao no Exorcist

Ao no Exorcist is the story of Okimura Rin and his twin brother, Yukio. Rin, a problem child, lives in the church and tries to prove he can mature as he gets several jobs but fails to keep them all. As he starts seeing demons, Rin discovers that he is the son of Satan! That’s pretty much it for the episode (lol). The entire episode practically just covered half of the first chapter and I don’t expect the 2nd ep to go beyond the end of Chapter 1. I’m not sure if the anime going for 24 episodes. I’d like to point the fact that Yukio is poorly animated. He looks like fat-ass for a character considered to be an athletic guy. The animation is so-so. It’s a style that would fit a 90 min movie but not sure how it do for a tv series. I’ll give this episode a 7/10 because the lack of important content, but the manga would get an 8.5/10 just to tell you how good it could.

Anime Spring 2011 Season Preview

I’m right in time! This season is full of shounen, lolicon, random comedy and slice of life anime. Not all anime (Sekai Ichi no Hatsukoi, Dog Days, Dororon Enma-Kun Meeramera, Hamtaro, Hidan no Aria, etc…) has been put in the preview.

Anime TV Series


Gintama The Sequel

Synopsis: Continuation of the first series. The samurai didn’t stand a chance. First, the aliens invaded Japan. Next, they took all the jobs. And then they confiscated everyone’s swords. So what does a hotheaded former samurai like Sakata “Gin” Gintoki do to make ends meet? Take any odd job that comes his way, even if it means losing his dignity.

Rejoice!!! There is a good reason to go back to crunchyroll (lol). The super randomness is finally back in anime to blow minds up. I really can’t wait for Gintama to come back this april. I miss Tsukuyu <(** < ) . Watch out Gintoki, because Zura is trying to learn the ultimate technique from Lake Toya’s mom (no pun intended? dun dun dun).

30-Sai no Hoken Taiiku

Synopsis: Based on a guide-book teaching shy men around 30 how to date and have sex with women.

It is the most original concept of this century so far. Even though I’m not 30, this anime seems interesting enough to put a smile on my face. Oppai is Justice!!!!!!
