Anime Intros I like #05

It was a while since I did a post like this, there has been many new anime series airing and I’ve gotten a few new favorite intros. I like them for various reasons, it can be the song, the video intro or both together. Just so you know.

Attack on Titan: Junior High
A great parody on on the creators behalf, they sort of reenact the shows first intro. Both in video and in it’s song, but with a bit of a twist if you so will. Still haven’t watched the original series, but this one I highly enjoy.

Shomin Sample
A cute song I’ve become a bit addictive too. The muscular men scare me though..

Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry
Stylish opening and action packed, I love it!

You thought this was something ordinary…

I’ve really fallen for JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. It was an anime I honestly I couldn’t stand, but it turns out I enjoyed it very much. And I can see why so many others have been a fan of Jojo. I started to watch this series in November last year and I’m currently watching the third season that’s called ”Stardust Crusade”.

I enjoy the fighting, both it and it’s characters are so over the top sometimes that I can’t help but love it! It’s hard to explain this show, without going into all the good stuff and its those things you should see for yourself. I’m actually very interested in the PlayStation 3 game that came out sometime ago, mostly because of the show. So I might get that in the future too.

Well the series is about the Joestar family and their cursed struggle with Dio Brando a man who was one taken in an treated like a fellow member in the Joestar family. Jonathan Joestar and Dio where friends at first, but Dio grew jealous of Jonathan an wanted everything for himself. He comes into contact with an old stone mask, that has the power to turn you into a vampire. Dio uses it on himself and is forever transformed, he had fallen and he likes his new dark powers. This is what sparks the ”eternal” fued between the Joestar’s and Dio, this series really takes a few timeskips over its course. We’ll get to see Jonathan’s grandchild, Joseph Joestar as a youngster and we see him to grow up into an old man, with a grandchild of his own, Jotaro Kujo. I won’t spoil anything more, but go watch it. Its a really great show.

Finally some time off!

Ah! It feels great that its finally easter! That means some time off for most of us in Sweden, and boy it feels good to have some time off. Was even able to sleep a bit longer today, hurray! Waking up at 04:00 at the morning everyday takes some of the energy out of you eventually. So I could sleep to 07:00, Life is good, yes sir!
I wake up so early because work starts at 05:15, and if you are wondering why I’m not using AM and PM is because I can never remember which is what and I prefer a 24-hour clock. In case anyone was wondering, which you probably weren’t.

So with this time off, I am going to do a bunch of stuff I like. Or rather do stuff I haven’t had the energy to do when I’ve come home from work, like catching up on a few movies. Continue to play Tales of Symphonia HD and just enjoy myself, been so looking forward to some me time. I love my work but the past weeks have been tiering, so its really nice to do exactly what I want to do. Often when I get home from work, there are a lot of other stuff that needs to be done, like cocking and whatnot. When all stuff is finished, I never feel like I have the time to sit down and game a few hours, mostly because I go to bed early just to get a decent amount of sleep
So there will be a lot of movie and gaming being done, hopefully in these five days I have free.

I’m currently looking for a bigger apartment and I hope I can find one soon, I really need some more space and having a separate bedroom from the living room and a real (bigger) kitchen would be great. The only downside to moving is that its expensive, all the costs for changing address and stuff like that, not looking forward to those parts, but I’ll gladly do it if I can find a better place. Since I’m single (hello, ladies) I don’t need such a big apartment, I just need a separate bedroom from the living room as I said and I’m pretty pleased. Sure If I can get a place where I can have a washing machine in my apartment that would be great.

Last week was busy…

I’m so glad last week is behind us, man that was one though and busy week. I worked over some days and I had people to meet after work, so it was full of stuff. Sure some of it was fun, but damn… I hardly got any rest or gaming done and then I worked on the weekend too. Well not Sunday and today I am free! So that’s nice!
Hopefully this week will be a bit better, firstly I only work four days and I will not do any overtime this week. So yeah, I am thinking this will be a pretty good week. After work on Friday I’ll make my way to Elden and we’ll watch the second half of The Walking Dead season 4. Looking forward to see what happens.

And soon its time for easter, not that I care about it that much. But we’ll get a couple of days of from work, so I can do whatever I please! Looking forward to some time of to do other stuff I love. No, I haven’t gotten tried of my work, I just want some more free time that’s all. And very long after easter it time for vacation time! We’ll see what I’ll be doing, if I can get away from home or I’ll just stay home. All depends on if I can be out with other people or if I’ll start feeling unwell and nervous, I really don’t like to be out where there are lots of people right now. I don’t know why, I just can’t handle them. I had hoped my phobia of people would get a bit better, but this year it seems to have reverted back a bit to what it was like before. Like I don’t go out if I really don’t need to, I try to avoid shops and stuff where lots of people gather. Its hard to find a balance. =/

As I said, last week was full of stuff so I had hardly anytime trying inFAMOUS: Second Son for the PlayStation 4. But that will change this week, I’ve already played a few hours and I like it! Not that I had much doubt that I would to be honest. Though one thing pissed me of, not about the game but my controller. My DualShock 4’s touchpad stopped working when I was about to start I:SS, fucking great! So I’ve returned it and I am waiting for it to get fixed and sent back to me. Hopefully this doesn’t take a month. But then again you never know. Thankfully ZX-Omega was kind to lend me his DS4 so I can play. Thank you! So now I can play though all of inFAMOUS and then go to Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes.

This are the games I got in March. Loving inFAMOUS so far, looking forward to try MGSV: GZ even if its short. And Watch_Dogs pack is just a preorder pack! Some costumes and multiplayer stuff, but it came in case when I made the preorder. So that’s nice! Hopefully the game is good too!

The games I got in March

I managed to finish of some anime shows like Kill La Kill, which was really good. Not as good as Gurren Lagann but still very enjoyable. So I can recommend that if you haven’t seen it. Hmm, what more did I watch? I finished watching No-rin, Mahou Sensou and a few others. Just check out my MAL and see what I’ve gone through if you are interested. =)
Right now I’m watching Beet The Vandal Buster, so far a pretty decent fantasy anime. More in the sort that I am looking for. Well, gotta back back to inFAMOUS and other stuff. Bye all!

What I’m doing now…

I’ve been busy as usual, but last week and this week has so far been pretty good. I’ve managed to finish Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate HD. Now try saying that name five times fast! It was pretty okay, the worst part about the game is its loading times. And that some of the sound effects sounds like a fart in a can. I’ll see if I can list everything about the game in a later post. That’s if I still care about it by then, which is doubtful.

Now that’s out of the way, I am going to start playing Batman: Arkham Origins. I’ve so far just seen about the intro, so I’m looking forward to start playing it tomorrow. I have watched some animes as usual and I’ve actually started watching a series I thought I would never see. That anime is Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure (2012 ver.)
So far it is really nice! And I’ve discovered that Dio Brando is one sick mofo. It’ bloodier than I anticipated, but it doesn’t bother me.

This upcoming weekend I’m just gonna relax and take it easy. Unless I have to work, if I am not working I’ll game and watch anime all weekend. Ahhh! The good life. Only around 24 days left until I have my PlayStation 4! Hype, hype, hype!! So looking forward to that. :D

Anime shows I’m watching now #1

I watch a lot of anime, I watch every chance I get. And now that I am home and sick, I can finally get around to watch of the winter seasons anime shows. Here are some that I liked particular for various reasons, I’ll give a good explanation of some. Other I’ll just rant a bit on the story, so its doesn’t follow some pattern here. But I’m watching them since I like them. =)

KILL la KILL

This is probably the craziest show of the season. From the team that gave us Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann and Panty & Stockings. They have a very unique animation style and I can’t help but to like it. Here is the simple breakdown of the show, Ryuko a girl with one half of a giant scissor is looking for her fathers killer. The killer should have the other half of the giant scissor. She comes to a school where the the high-ranking students have clothes that give them superhuman powers. Her scissor is the only thing that can cut through these special clothes. Later she finds her own powerful clothes, but the clothes are alive and has a personality. It was made by Ryuko’s father. This was a very crude breakdown of the show, go watch it! It is funny and the animation is great and really special, just like all the stuff this team makes.

Machine-Doll wa Kizutsukanai

Raishin, a man seeking revenge for the death of his childhood friend, most people in this world seems to be able to control a ”puppet”, automaton or rather machine-doll or what you’ll like to call it. Not only that but he want to learn magic and become a great wizard, so he can get money, power and fame. But for what reason? Only for revenge? Hmm… Raishin’s doll is called Yaya and is the spitting image of his childhood friend. Its also apparently rare for dolls to look so much like humans, so we’ll see how Yaya impacts the story. I think it’s a pretty good mix of humor (not so much, action and a bit of pervertedness. Yaya wants Raishin hard! I fell for the series immediately, I didn’t think I would but I’m liking it so far. Oh, right maybe because its fantasy mixed pretty well with some modern stuff…

BlazBlue: Alter Memory

An anime based on the hit fighting game-series BlazBlue! I just needed to watch this, even if I’m not very interested in playing the games. The story and characters have always interested me and I love Daisuke Ishiwatari music, even if I think his Guilty Gear music is better. But I’m glad they are using the games music in the anime, it sound a bit remixed though. Not really sure what to think after the first episode, I felt pretty confused, but I got to see much of Noel so I’m happy. It wasn’t crap for me at least so I’ll continue to watch and see what happens.

Infinite Stratos 2

Well of course I needed a harem anime too and Infinite Stratos 2 fills that part pretty good. As the ”two” implies this is a sequel. It starts Ichika a typical doesn’t get that girls love him anime guy and he is surrounded by girls. In fact girls are the only ones which can use ”IS” a sort of mecha armor, but for some reason Ichika is the only male in the world who can use it. So he is in an all girls school, where he meets childhood friends and all that typical. You get really pissed at a guy like him, how the hell can a guy be so damn oblivious. I would love to be in his situation. I also have my favorite girl, Charlotte. I’d would spend all my time with her and make it clear that I liked her, if I was in Ichika’s situation. At least I’m not that goddamn oblivious. Pretty decent show, with some funny segments.

Anime intros I like (German ver.)

It’s no secret that I love anime, come on! Even the title to this is anime intros I like, dead give away! But before we had internet at home, the only way I could watch anime was on a German TV-channel called RTL2. So I hurried home from school to sit a couple of hours and watch anime, the stuff I missed I recorded. I did this everyday and I somewhat miss it. Thanks to this I learned German, I still have some problems writing in German but I can understand it. So here are some of my favorite anime intros in German. Since its a few videos posted and I don’t want to slow down the site too much, you’ll have to click in on this post. Some videos have crappy quality, sorry about that.

Digimon Season 1 opening
A classic for me! I just love that the German dubbers went with all the music from the Japanese version of the show and not the terrible music the English version got.

Dr.Slump – Opening 1 (New series)
I just love OP and ED with dancing. And I think this was one of my first encounters with just dancing openings. The song is catchy and I really like it. And yes, the series is made by Akira Toriyama.

Jeanne die Kamikaze Diebin – Opening (Jeanne The Phantom Thief)
I really don’t know what I can or should say about this opening. I just like it very much! And the show was/is pretty good too. It’s about an reincarnated Jeanne D’arc who hunts for demons (phantoms) inside of artifacts. I liked it.

One Piece Opening 3
I really like the singer, the happy go lucky style of the song. It’s just a nice and great song, I like it a lot more in German than the original. This intro also has a pretty good English dub.
