Batman – Assault On Arkham

The film is set in the universe of the Batman: Arkham video game franchise, and occurs after the events of Batman: Arkham Origins. The story focuses primarily on theSuicide Squad, particularly Batman villains Deadshot and Harley Quinn, with Batman in a supporting role. In the film, a Suicide Squad of six criminals is dispatched byAmanda Waller to break into Arkham Asylum, where they must contend with the asylum’s inmates and Batman as they attempt to complete their mission.

This is by THE best direct to video made by DC Comics, or any other company for that matter. There are a lot of DTVs made and the creators get to have a good amount of experimentation in style and the quality of the animation itself varies drastically, but DC Comics is usually on top of their game with their Direct to Video Movies. For once they didn’t stick to your typical storyline, and the bad guys played a much deeper role then just Batman himself, the Suicide Squad had a colorful array of characters who carried the movie in a more comic book style then seen before, and that made it that much better. The combination of action, artstyle, humor, wit, voices, and characters took this movie to another level, now DC has set the bar so high it’s going to be hard to beat this movie. One thing to keep in mind this movie is not for kids, and I will leave it at that.

 

 

Kill La Kill – Must See

Plot Summary: Ryuuko Matoi carries a large weapon shaped like half of a pair of scissors. She’s looking for the woman with the other half, who killed her father. Satsuki Kiryuuin, student council president of Honnouji Academy, is said to know the woman’s identity, so Ryuuko transfers there. Those who arrive at the school receive a special “goku uniform,” and Satsuki has used that power to rule the school in fear.

A fantastic anime from the creators of Gurren Laggan, with the same spirit and fire that fueled that anime and I especially love the style. You will always be routing for Ryuuki Matoi in the story and this is one of the best developed storylines I have seen in a long time, you can’t help but love all the characters, this is a rare breed of anime. And there is a fantastic twist towards the end that really gets you riled up. The action is nonstop if a lot of fan service nudity, but there is no episode that leaves you disappointed, and full of humor of every kind. If you have any inclination towards anime then this is a must, and if you haven’t seen it then you are really missing out.

Valvrave the Liberator

Thanks to the development of the Dyson Sphere, The majority of the human populace lives in space. The Dorssia Military Federation, and the Atlantic Rim United States exist as major Military countries, while JOIR is a neutral principality, the story follows Haruto Tokishima as a normal boy going thru high school in T.C (True Calendar) year 71. This all changes when Haruto meets the humanoid weapon Valvrave.

Finding out that your population is under attack with no hope of getting away, and the Valvrave are their only hope. I really like the precedence of the story and how it develops. There are more players who show up as the story progresses but season two is a hell of continuation with a crazy ending. It’s not as good as Lelouche The Rebellion but still pretty good and fun to watch, got to enjoy how the Valvraves develop in the story and their pilots.

Animegraphy 2013 – This Is Why I Love Anime

This is why I love anime, it brings across so many emotions you are bound to connect with one, and it gets you going, your blood pumping, your adrenaline rushing, and you immerse yourself in it, and its never enough. This year I managed to catch up with a lot of Anime but to the end of 2013 I fell back again, now I’m back at it again and this Youtube video says a lot.

Anime List 11/13

Valvrave

There is only so much time in a day and I always try to sneak in an episode of anime any which way possible. I watch it on my laptop, on the iPad, or on my Phone. I have all my anime stored but a lot of times I watch it on the anime App called CrunchyRoll. When that App first came out it didn’t matter where you were located you got to see all that was available but as of the last year you have to be in the US or Europe to see every Anime available which annoys me. I want access to my shows and I’m paying them monthly to stream everything so for that you should be able to watch whatever they have, these studio politics stops people from genuinely enjoying the shows they love. But I get to watch what I want one way or another.

Review: Gargantia On The Verdurous Planet

Gargantia

While fighting an intense inter-galactic war, a mecha pilot was accidentally warped into a space-time neither he nor the computer of his mecha could recognize. After waking up from a long-time hibernation, he found himself trapped on a planet, with human residents talking in an unknown form of language, using inferior technologies, and — most shocking to him — naturally breathable air.

Gargantia2

This Mecha anime starts off with an Epic battle, all forms of Mecha versus a jellyfish like Enemy who is more then formidable against there great numbers. From the start Gargantia had me excited from the start, I love when there is a mix of cel and cg animation to bring out the depth of the characters and action in the story. I was slowly getting to love the main character and his mech, they were totally out of place on this earth and slowly adapting to their current situation as circumstances changed. The story kept heading for an insane climax but at the end of all of it, it just didn’t hit what I was really expecting, I expected something Epic but instead I was left wanting more. I enjoyed this Mecha anime but wanted more.

Review: Attack On Titan – Shingeki no Kyojin

AttackOnTitan

Several hundred years ago, humans were nearly exterminated by giants. Giants are typically several stories tall, seem to have no intelligence, devour human beings and, worst of all, seem to do it for the pleasure rather than as a food source. A small percentage of humanity survived by enclosing themselves in a city protected by extremely high walls, even taller than the biggest of giants. Flash forward to the present and the city has not seen a giant in over 100 years. Teenage boy Eren and his foster sister Mikasa witness something horrific as the city walls are destroyed by a super giant that appears out of thin air. As the smaller giants flood the city, the two kids watch in horror as their mother is eaten alive. Eren vows that he will murder every single giant and take revenge for all of mankind.

AttackOnTitan2

Every once in a while there is an anime which will rock your world, and Attack On Titan is that anime for this year. I couldn’t wait for the next episode to air, its been a while since this has happened in my case. The protagonist in the story was so intense and yet he was taken out so early on with a twist that I don’t want to ruin for a person who hasn’t watched it. Eren was the main character, but then Mikasa, Armin, & Levi were also very deeply developed characters who really took the story forward with so many cliffhangers keeping people on their seats, and you can tell the fandom behind some of the different characters. You can tell the story is excellent when the audience are fans of different people. There are times when this show left me hanging and pissed, but it is only like that because I get so invested with the show and there are a lot of questions left. The best part is that I am satisfied with the show but there are a lot of hints towards a second season which I can’t wait to see how they develop, the tides have turned and they will now Attack the Titans!
