Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi ~ Review

“Even though it has this title, this show is pretty godly!”

There are many fantasy anime series that revolve around a God, or a God-like creature or existence. But this anime flips that idea upside down; giving a view of a fantastical world where God is gone. And ironically, even though God is gone, this anime is one Godly anime series!

Top 5 Biggest Disappointments In Anime

~ Top 5 Biggest Disappointments In Anime ~

So you’re sitting in front of your computer, happily watching an anime series that looks great… and then BAM!! By the end of the series you’re sitting in front of that same computer going, “…Well, that was disappointing…”. If you’re an anime expert and ventured outside of the mainstream anime’s, then you’ll know what I’m talking about. Maybe you’ve even experienced it first hand.

Well… that was just disappointing…

Well here is a list of the Top 5 biggest disappointments that you can come across in an anime series. Just to clear things up before I begin, this is not a list highlighting the most disappointing anime series, but rather, things that you can come across in an anime that may leave you disappointed. In other words, some (if not all) of the below criteria can fit into one or more anime series.

Well, let’s begin! At number 5 we have…

“Who would’ve thought that samurai’s and aliens could fit together so well!”

If you’re a true anime fan, then you truly know how awesome this series is. You would also know that it is one of those anime series that all anime fans should have watched already (or is on the verge of watching in the near future), because if you haven’t seen it yet (or even heard of this series yet) then I’ve got some bad news for you. You are missing out. BIG TIME. Let me show you why…

“Searing flames of evil that will set your heart alight!”

Here is another great anime that recently ended for you to feast your eyes on. Many people say it was quite a unique anime with a unique concept, and although I’ll admit the plot was unique, you can loosely relate it to the series Zetman. But this isn’t a review for Zetman. This is a review for Code:Breaker; a series that you should most definitely watch if you haven’t yet. But of course, I’m about to tell you why you should go and watch it, and not just tell you to (well… I could just tell you, but this is the Internet; you need a solid argument to get anywhere).

Samurai Champloo ~ Review

Samurai Champloo ~ Review

“One of the greatest and coolest shows I have ever seen!”

Do you know this series at all? If you don’t then I’m sorry but  you don’t deserve to call yourself an anime fan, anime lover or even an anime watcher. Because this series is an absolute must watch series to gain the title of “the anime fan”. It may just look like your ordinary samurai anime… but you’d be very, very wrong. So very, very wrong…

Samurai Champloo is set in a fictional version of the Edo Period, where everything has a hip-hop twist to it. The main heroine Fuu meets two powerful swordsman, Mugen and Jin, and asks them to accompany her on her search for “the samurai that smells of sunflowers”. But of course, there are many troubles and tasks along their journey; saving lives and taking lives, they each search for their own things.

The series was highly acclaimed for its unique execution, concept, plot and animation style

The series consists of 26 episodes and aired during the second half of 2004. The series is animated by Manglobe Inc., who later went on to animate many iconic series include Ergo Proxy, Deadman Wonderland and The World God Only Knows. The series is known for its iconic soundtrack, consisting of such artists as Nujabes (RIP Lord of Hip-hop), Minmi, DJ Tsutchie and Force of Nature, making the Samurai Champloo OST one of the most iconic and unique soundtracks in anime.

The series consists of many well-known voice actors who later went on to become iconic voice actors in the anime industry; such voice actors include Nakai Kazuya who voices Mugen (and is also known as the voices of Zoro from One Piece and Hijikata Toushiro from Gintama) and Kawasumi Ayako who voices Fuu (and is also known as the voices of Sakuraba Aoi from Ai Yori Aoshi and Saber from Fate/Stay Night).

The animation, plot and character development are all very cleverly constructed and presented, which helped this anime to become so enjoyable, yet unique at the same time. In some countries, it even sparked a “samurai boom”, due to the anime being released in dubbed versions in the US and Australia (I don’t know if that’s true, that’s just what I heard). But I have no doubt in saying that this anime series is amazing and it definitely deserves your full attention if you haven’t yet seen this. You’ll want to be a little bit samurai after watching this as well, I think.
