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.

Review: Majestic Prince

MajesticPrince3

Plot Summary: In the latter half of 21st century, humans leave the Earth and begin to live in space. In order to adapt to the environment in space and deal with the hostile aliens in Jupiter, genetically engineered children called “Princes” are artificially raised and trained to be pilots of armed robots “AHSMB (Advanced High Standard Multipurpose Battle Device). This is a story about one of the teenage “Princes”, Hitachi O Izuru, who studies in an academic city Grandzehle.

MajesticPrince2

One of the funner Mecha Animes from this season, I do enjoy most Mecha shows just because I love Mecha anime so much but this one had a great story and I loved the development in it. The characters were serious but fun, they were in a difficult spot but I love how the machines turned out to be a lot more then just machines, an extension of the pilot themselves. As the show progresses more and more is revealed about the Wulgaru, and it just keeps getting more intense. A very well done mecha anime with a decent story line and awesome mechas. I honestly love the combination of CG and drawing in this anime, it is an excellent mix, for any Mecha fan you will enjoy this.

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.

Anime List 09/13

AttackOnTitan

I have been better about watching Anime and getting back into it, trying at least one episode a day, the thing is that its so addictive, its had just to stay at one episode a day, you want to watch 10. My list has been kept full but I am sure to watch one or two episodes when I can, and some of these shows are really good with Attack on Titan being the best by far, waiting for each episode to come out is killing me. Bleach on the other hand I’m loving, I sort of skim through the filler episodes but watch the storylines religiously when I get into it.

Jojos

What I Am Watching:

  • Attack On Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) – The Best Anime this Season by Far! Love it!
  • Bleach – Catching Up And Loving it, I’m at 314 & only 52 Episodes Left, Loving it!
  • Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet – A Very Cool Mecha Anime
  • Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure – Finishing This Show Up, Reminds of Fist OF The North Star, Love the Action
  • Majestic Prine – Another Cool Mecha Anime, I’m Loving the number of Mecha shows this season
  • Sword Art Online – Finishing Up A Great Story
  • Valvrave the Liberator – Action Packed Mecha – Enjoying the Fight Scenes

Anime List 07/13

bleach2

It’s been 6 months since I have updated this list and I have fallen back majorly on my anime intake. I just got caught up with a lot of work and then there were so many shows to follow up on that I barely watched any anime, but now I am fully immersed in it and I now know what I was missing. There are some great shows and I am catching up on them right away. Its like I’m going full throttle into anime again watching 10 episodes at a time, when I have 5 minutes I watch anime, I watch it whenever I am doing something and I can read the subtitles at the same time, I love this stuff.

AttackOnTitan

What I Am Watching:

  • Attack On Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) – Very intense Anime, it really pulls you in
  • Bleach – Catching Up And Loving it, from 198 to 246 in a few days, Loving it!
  • Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet – A Very Cool Mecha Anime
  • Sword Art Online – Finishing Up A Great Story
  • Valvrave the Liberator – Action Packed Mecha – Enjoying the Fight Scenes

Review: Muv-Luv Alternative – Total Eclipse

MuvLuv1

In 1973, an invasion of aliens known as BETA upon Earth is driving human civilization into nearly collapse. Facing an enormous mass of enemy force, mankind has developed large humanoid arms called as Tactical Surface Fighters and deployed them to its defense lines through out the world. However, all those efforts could slow down defeats but could not stop BETA, and mankind is forced to abandon major area of the Eurasian Continent. For 30 years, mankind is bogged down in an endless war against BETA without any hopes of victory.
In 2001, the Imperial Japan faces difficulties in the development of a next-generation main Tactical Surface Fighters (TSF) as it defends the front lines of the Far East. The UN has proposed a joint development program between the Imperial Japan and the United States as a part of its international mutual development project of TSF, the Prominence Project.
This story with exciting human dramas and robot actions takes place in the development of a new Tactical Surface Fighters, the most important and effective weapons against BETA, at a crisis of human extinction.
Yet they never knew that their encounter would change their destiny drastically.
Yui Takamura, a TSF pilot of the Imperial Royal Guards of Japan, is given responsibility for the project and sets off to Alaska. Meanwhile, Yuya Bridges, also a TSF pilot of the US Army, was heading to the same destination.

MuvLuv2

I do love Mecha Anime, thats the first thing I saw, I didn’t know what to expect, but I love it when I see robots, and this time around Muv-Luv Alternative was an interesting story. You get pulled into the characters from the beginning with a few more interesting characters getting introduced, and the world is fighting a losing battle against an Alien Force that just won’t stop. I can’t help but like because it has the Mecha machines and the battles are cool. The story is decent, not great, there are few things that just didn’t make sense but the battles made up for and the wacky characters too. If you want a good Mecha anime, then Muv-Luv does the job, don’t have high expectations and enjoy.
