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.

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.

Graceland – Not Your Typical Cop Show

Graceland1

Somewhere in Southern California, in a drug raid run by the US government, a beachfront property was seized and turned into a residence for undercover cops. They are all top agents of the DEA, FBI, and Customs and they are living in this house unofficially known as “Graceland”. “Graceland” is a place full of secrets, and bad, good, and blurred moments too. The only idyllic thing is its outside look, but the lives of its residents are nothing like it. The lies which are in the base of their undercover work, are formed a web of lies that pervades everything. Coming of a new graduating at the top of his class, FBI rookie, Mike Warren (Aaron Tveit), could make the life of a legendary FBI agent Paul Briggs (Daniel Sunjata) and the others, more complicated or it could reveal the truth. It is based upon actual events.

Graceland2

This show took a bit of getting used to, several different law agencies under the same house in an undercover situation running different or same ops. The characters of the show were interesting and the best of the bunch is Paul Briggs, is he a bad guy or a good guy, or good guy doing bad things to beat the bad guys. Then you have Mike Warren the best of the best out of Quantico, top of his class and meant to investigate Briggs. The whole house is filled with a bunch of characters and the story takes some interesting twists and turns over the 13 episode season, pretty impressive and I’m looking forward to the second season. It was a hell of an ending but left just enough of it unanswered so I don’t know where this will go next. For a cop show this is a different kind of show but short and sweet.

Devious Maids – The Surprise Hit

DeviousMaids1

Four Latina maids with ambition and dreams of their own work for the rich and famous in Beverly Hills.

A 13 episode twister turned out to be a very exciting show, honestly much better then I expected I watched it episode to episode, I couldn’t wait to watch it. Eva Langoria is the executive producer of the show and she has a hit on her hands. Maids of the rich and famous of Beverly Hills is bound to have some comedy and drama thrown into the mix, and I loved the characters portrayed.

DeviousMaids2

The core of the story revolves around the maids and the one maid who was killed, and who was the killer. The antics that take place in these people’s houses is hilarious. A summer hit in my opinion and kept me watching until the end, with the perfect twist for next season, which will be next summer, it was short but sweet. I’m 100% sure every woman that watched this show loved it.

2013 Summer TV Shows

Graceland

This has been an interesting summer with a lot of different shows as well as the usual shows. Suits is just over the top good, Devious was an interesting introduction and so is Graceland. And I never get tired of Franklin & Bash, I just wish there were more episodes to enjoy.

DeviousMaids

  • Falling Skies – Haven’t finished it, but its getting intense
  • Franklin & Bash – Loving the show as usual, but not more Epic then the last season
  • Suits – This season is Epic, its ridiculous how good its gotten
  • Devious Maids – This turned out to be a surprise of a show, the maids know everything
  • Royal Pains – This show is just as good as usual, I do enjoy Dr Lawson
  • The Newsroom – Haven’t started it yet, but really looking forward to it.
  • Graceland – A pretty interesting Interagency Law Enforcement Team in Malibu, a complex action show
  • Under the Dome – Halfway through it, still confused as to the dome but very interesting to see whats happening with people
  • Rookie Blue – This season isn’t as good as the previous one
  • Ray Donovan – Crazy show, just the first two episodes and its over the top

FallingSkies

Under The Dome

Under The Dome from CBS is a Stephen King daptation for Television. Its not scary in the usual Stephen King way, but more towards how people will panic when they are cut off. Looks like a very interesting summer with shows like these. Its a 13 part miniseries, and if it does well the they will extend it for another season, but it does look interesting, its science fiction so I know I will be watching it.

BBM For Android & iOS This Summer

BBM

This might be a little too late, but still its the move that they needed to do for a while. If you have a Blackberry you can feel relative again, you won’t be alone anymore, thats if people join BBM again after joining the WhatsApp bandwagon. I like BBM and still until the end of its days, the hardware got a bit annoying and kept restarting with 15 min restarts. With the launch of the Q10 everyone seems interested in it again and they gave it a chance with the Z10 but Blackberry just doesn’t work with the Touch Screen alone, it needs the keyboard too thats why the Q10 looks interesting. BBM was always more organized and better then the all the other chat Apps in the beginning and maybe this move will bring them back, the one failure of Blackberry is the lack of Apps but we will see what happens when BBM is released, will people migrate back to BBM?
