I thought I would buy a PASH! magazine since I liked the Mekakucity Actors poster and shitajiki. It’s like the end of June and I’m finally writing this review for the May Issue…orz Well, I’m going to keep this short so I can post this soon.
One of the interesting article was on Mekakucity Actors. I’m somewhat avoiding the anime because I actually already purchased the light novels for it, which I haven’t read yet. Well, I think I read one chapter, but stopped because I got busy with life. Also, I have this problem with sitting still reading for a long time. Well, I can go for an hour, but I think that’s my limit. I would have to take a break after the hour, especially b/c I have this tendency to read aloud when it comes to light novels ┐(‘～`；)┌. Oh, but actually, I watched the first episode for the anime though, just to see how it turned out. It’s actually pretty good and I like the opening/ending theme too. Anyways, the article gave some background on the characters, which was really useful. I actually started with the vocaloid songs that were on Nico Nico Douga, so I was really curious to what stories were behind the music videos. Also, i found out that Kido was actually a girl aha. I’m really interested in the story and mysteries behind the characters, so hopefully I’ll find some time to read it soon? I’m satisfied with the the poster and shitajiki, but one problem… the poster is so humongo! If it were smaller, I would totally put it on my wall, but… Maybe I’ll put the shitajiki up then haha. I never use the shitajiki to put under my paper since they get scratched eventually. Too beautiful for it to get scratched (ι´Д｀)ﾉ.
I remember my friend talking about this one, but haven’t really given a try until the anime came out. I just couldn’t help not watching the anime when my dashboard was filled with Haikyuu!! reblogs lol. Every characters have their charms and are so adorkable too. The article shows the opposite and similar traits of Hinata and Kageyama. So this is how Ishikawa Kaito sounds like…I was wondering how he sounded like since I saw his name on Zettai Kaikyuu Gakuen. I wonder if they’re going to do the senpai are graduating and there are going to be new teammates kind of thing. I don’t read the manga, so I don’t know much. However, a lot of the mangas are doing that now and it’s painful. Just when I’m starting to love the characters, they go bye bye (´・д・`).
This is another one with the whole 3rd years are graduating kind of thing. At first, I wasn’t really into this one b/c I thought the characters looked kinda creepy? ESPECIALLY Midousuji… he keeps calling people kimoi, but in my opinion, he’s the one that’s kimoi…no offense (･ｪ･). The article talks about the will of winning the inter-high competition from different character’s perspectives. The anime first grasped my attention when Onoda and Tadokoro was singing this anime song as they they climb the hill, such an adorkable moment. I ended up reading the manga because the anime was too slow and I wanted to know what was going to happen, especially the outcome of the inter-high competition. As of now, I stopped right where the inter-high has ended and a new captain has been chosen for the club. It’s so hard for me to start loving new characters when I’m like NOOOOO, bring the 3rd years backkk ahaha. I probably would have the hardest time for Haikyuu!! b/c they’re the most adorkable in my book right now (*´д｀*).
Kuroko no Basuke
I totally haven’t really read or watch this anime, but I kind of googled quite a lot about the characters? Well, I think I got all the basics down. I officially only watched one episode b/c I saw my dad watching it in the living room computer, so I was like what the hay, I’ll watch too. Since I was watching from the middle, I didn’t really know what was going on. I remember I was like OH OH it’s GRANRODEO and like OH OH SUWABE, ONO-D, SUZU, and etc. Thus, my journey on google searching up on KnB started. As of now, I just hear my friends talking about some new happenings on it and that’s about it? The article talks about the bonds and its development between teammates and rivals. I really like the Tetsu and 2-gou pair. Also, the end cards are really pretty~ (✿◉◡◉)
Daiya no Ace
ANOTHER 3rd year going bye bye anime. I actually thought the original 3rd years had more impact than the current new teammates, so I was like oh that’s weird. Well, maybe b/c the new guys are mostly 1st years? Sorry I don’t really know the nitty-gritty stuff b/c I kinda skimmed through the second half of the manga. No offense, but they kinda look a bit mob-ish. Perhaps, this is in order to bring a better spotlight to the characters that were there before? OH, but I was actually glad to see that one guy that helped Eijun study to be included in the team. He seems a bit mob-ish too, but something about him that made me wanna see more of him. Other than him, I’m like bring the 3rd years back, who needs new guys lols. Well, I’ll probably like them if I “actually” read the second half, but…at the moment, I can’t accept them ( ◔ д ◔ ). Also, manga reading is kinda time consuming…orz.
Anyways, I remember being really excited when the anime came out since I’m more of an anime watcher than a manga reader, especially for long-run manga. Also, I prefer to enjoy the characters’ personalities with the voice included. Yeah, there are times when I think the voices don’t quite fit, but I’m satisfied overall. The article covered Miyuki’s ironclad rules on a game, to have a confident lead, to support no matter what, maintain the pitcher’s physical condition, and to read pitching combinations. And apparently, there are rumors that you can’t recognize him when he takes off his glasses. Does that make his glasses his main symbol? lol Reminds me of this one anime that identifies a person by his glasses or sunglasses aha. If you know what I mean… ( •ω•ฅ)
I never really watched this anime either. Yeah, I haven’t been watching anime since they’re really time consuming, but I know quite a lot about this anime as well. The article is on some kind of collection divided into categories, such as the Smile, Tsun & Dere, Back in the Day, and Tears collection. If we were to think smiles, Mako and Nagisa would would definitely be the first two to pop up in my head since their smiles are so precious~ In terms of Tsundere, Haru and Rin. They’re usually just tsun and tsun, but sometimes they’re dere-ness takes a little peek. The article mentions Rei and I understand, but after he joined Haru & co, he’s just an adorkable fool in my eyes (ﾟωﾟ). Back in the day, omgosh Haru & co were so cuteee -dies-. In the Tears collection, there is no other than Rin’s tears, best moe moment ever I swear. That’s about it, but there’s going to be a 2nd season for the anime? I don’t know the airing details, but I know that there’s going to be a new character! He looks like the cool type, but feels like he has a similar kind of feel that Rin had in the beginning of the 1st season. Idk, but his eyes makes him look a bit angry. According to wiki, he’s understanding and he doesn’t get irritated by anything. His image picture and the personality description does not matchhhh ahaha.
Shingeki no Kyojin
The article talks about how there’s going to be a movie for this manga/anime. Well, honestly…I don’t see the point of that since you’re just basically seeing what we saw in the anime. Well, there’s going to be more BAM for the movie since it will be showing in a movie theater, but would it really be a good product when it becomes a DVD? Idk, but I guess there will be some polishes here and there?
This comic was actually pretty interesting, reminded me of Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou and Gintama, how they’re full of ridiculous things. For this issue, the friend of the protagonist is a mahou shoujo making him dress like one too. With one more member in their mahou shoujo group (a teacher), they try to fight their friend’s humongo pet bird. In the end, they have this cliche climax with their last attack, but turns out the attack is self-destruction. In addition, the happening actually turns out to be the protagonist’s dream ┐(‘～`；)┌.
Sorry for the late update! I should just stop saying when I might be able to post my reviews since I just can’t keep them. They always tend to be late…orz. Well anyways, I think I kept it pretty concise using only the main articles? Well, these are pretty much the articles that grasped my attention and the ones that I keep track of. I can’t keep my promises on when I’ll post the remaining reviews, but I’ll try to finish them as soon as I can (>ω<)ﾉｼ.
