Review: Brave 10

Plot Summary: A year before the battle of Sekigahara that ended the Sengoku Period, the ninja Saizou Kirigakure meets the miko Nami Isa as she’s attacked by assassins. Her shrine was destroyed by Tokugawa Ieyasu for siding with Yukimura Sanada. Meanwhile, Sanada has been gathering ten warriors known as Sanada’s Brave 10, who have the power to change history. As they gather one by one, Nami’s own mysterious power awakens.

Ninjas, Samurais, thrown into a political battle of lords, and 10 different fighters who somehow end up in Yukimura Sanada’s camp. The story is pretty good with a good amount of comedy and suspense thrown into the mix, and who doesn’t like when Ninja’s and Samurai start fighting. Isanami is one of the more interesting characters and her power’s seem to be showing themselves as things get worse for the 10. Its a fun anime that started off great but lacked a bit of substance, still it was a lot of fun to watch, I hope this story gets another season.

Anime List 04/12

Now I remember why I went on a short Anime break, its addicting, I’m loving a lot of shows that I have saved up and I’m watching them almost one shot. I’m watching the list below all at the same time depending on my mood since they are all pretty good and different. I recently finished a few and added to the list below, and recently I heard some news which shocked me, Bleach has come to an end. Its a bit shocking because that is the anime that got me into downloading torrents, before I used to buy the DVDs and wait months or years to watch them in the US but then I discovered Bleach towards my last year in the US and loved it. I stopped watching it at episode 189 and now it has ended on 366 which I heard is an epic Battle, so when I start Bleach I won’t stop.

  • Brave 10 – Loving Every Piece Of It
  • Inu X Boku Secret Service – A Surprising Anime Indeed
  • Mazinkaiser SKL – All Action Loving It
  • Mobile Suit Gundam Age – Enjoying It
  • Stiens Gate – Trippy To Watch

Going To Watch:

  • Fate Zero
  • Darker Then Black
  • Guilty Crown

Macross Quarter

Every once in a while a new model comes out which grabs my attention, this time around its the battleship from Macross. Macross Quarter is die-cast model from Japan which has both ship and robot form. A battle ship that is meant to house hundreds of thousands of people as well as weapons and spaceship, as can be seen one arm looks like an aircraft carrier and the other has more canons on it turning into a super canon.

The quality build of this model is very high and currenlty available through Japan. I’m trying to get my hands on one because its very rare ot get a model of this quality every day. Its selling for around $170 which isn’t too bad for an anime model.

Review: Juusou Kikou Dancouga Nova

Plot Summary: In the year 2104, lots of local armed conflicts threaten the world peace. Soon, however, a new force appears: Dancouga, a gigantic super robot or uncertain origin. It appears out of nowhere and always aids the losing side. Its true objectives are unknown. At some point, four absolutely unrelated people, Aoi Hidaka, Kurara Tachibana, Sakuya Kamon, and Johnny Burnette, are invited by an organization that claims to be behind Dancouga… as its pilots. From there on, their search for the truth behind Dancouga’s mission and the battle to end all wars begin.

An odd team put together to fight in a giant robot, who could go wrong with something like that. I was looking for a simple Anime which had lots of robot fights and was entertaining, Dancouga Nova did the job. Don’t expect anything too great from it, the story line is a bit chopped up, there is a lot of fan fare but the music oddly was pretty good. A fun anime to watch if you need time to kill.

Japan Manga Cars

This is probably the coolest set of cars a person can have and they are all owned by one Yoshida San. Yoshida is a matured gentlemen, an avid gamer, and the owner of AGE SOFT a video game software house. I can’t believe how funky these cars look with the manga on it, I really like what he is done even though many will not appreciate it, but in Japan they are beautiful.

  • Eyeshield 21 (Almost towards the end of the series, I love American Football)
  • GaoGaiGar (Old School, but fun)
  • Hellsing Ultimate
  • Heroic Age
  • Initial D Second Stage (Damn Good Anime)
  • Kekkaishi (Entertaining)
  • Kyou Kara Maou (Entertaining)
  • Naruto: Shippuuden (Fun As Usual)

Review: Mobile Suit Gundam 00

Plot Summary: It is the year A.D. 2307. Fossil fuels on Earth have been depleted entirely, with mankind turning to the next available power source: solar energy. During this time, 3 orbital elevators with solar power generation systems are built, each under control by the Union of Solar Energy and Free Nations (formerly United States of America), the Human Reform League (Russia, China and India) and the Advanced European Union. However, not all countries are able to enjoy the benefits of this system, leading to widespread resentment and war. Arising out of the conflict, a mysterious military organization known as Celestial Being appears, dedicated to end all warfare using Mobile Suits called Gundam. This begins the stories of Gundam Meisters (pilots) Setsuna F. Seiei, Lockon Stratos, Allelujah Haptism and Tiera Erde as they are thrown into conflict between the 3 superpowers and the various other factions.

I always do enjoy the Gundam stories since they do revolve around these amazing machines. Every time I watch a Gundam anime I end up wanting to pilot one of those machines. This anime starts off a little different then all the others, this time they belong to an unknown entity which is trying to stop the war between the three powers of the globe, and this plan seemed to have been set in motion from two hundred years in the past. As usual the anime itself is spectacular, great music, and the character development is perfect for this anime. Any mecha or Gundam fan will love this version of Gundam 00, I know I did and the best part there will be a continuation of it.

Review: Vexille 2077 Isolation of Japan

Plot Summary: In an alternate 21st century, Japan’s scientists has perfected the art of biotechnology and robotics, its benefits extending the lifespans of all humans. However, the United Nations deemed the advanced technology a dangerous threat and started strict surveillance on Japan. The government of Japan refused to abide by UN’s demands to halt research, in the year 2067 left the UN and isolated itself visually and communically. Ten years later, an American special forces unit by the name of SWORD, led by its female commander named Vexille, are sent to uncover the current status of the isolated Japan, after the country begins its plan to move. The shocking secrets they find will shock the rest of the world.

This animation picks up when Japan isolates itself from the rest of the world and they are producing the most powerful weapons. Countries don’t want to cross Japan so they play by the rules to make sure they receive the latest weapons. The SWORD team starts seeing what DAIWA (Japanese Weapons Contractor) is doing and they don’t like but they don’t have the support of their government. They go into Japan blindly only to discover something shocking. The animation is nothing short of exquisite, the music is all based on Paul Oakenfold which keeps things very fresh, the action is non-stop and you can’t help enjoying this action packed CG anime.

At this point my list of downloaded Anime is ridiculous, I have 30 – 50 complete Animes in my stockpile.

I just can’t seem to get enough of it.
