Spirited Away

Once you’ve met someone you never really forget them.

In the film, Spirited Away, directed by Hayao Miyazaki, the two prominent film techniques used were visual symbolism and dialogue. These techniques helped viewers understand the three main ideas in Spirited away, which are greed, identity and good vs evil. Spirited Away is about a 10-year-old girl called Chihiro moving towns and stumble across an abandoned theme park village. Her parents were turned into pigs after eating some of the local food. Chihiro finds a mysterious boy Haku who tells her that this is a supernatural resort, and she needs to work to free her parents.

In the film Spirited Away visual symbolism helped viewers understand the theme of Good vs Evil.  For most of the film, Haku along with Chihiro is on the good side, whereas Yubaba and Zeniba, are on the bad side. Visual symbolism makes the audience believe that the characters are associated with mystical powers, emotions, and states of mind. For example, Haku and Chihiro both have very fair skin which is symbolising innocence like an angel. Chihiro has small facial features, like a baby which are considered cute in our society. Another example is Yubaba and Zeniba who are both witches have portrayed with very large heads almost the same size as their bodies making them appear tough and evil. Furthermore, she is very wrinkly and has lots of warts on her face. This makes us think, people who appear more ugly are associated with evil. 

I believe that director Hayao Miyazaki wants the audience to realise that we humans classify people into groups by just like we classify Haku and Chihiro as good and Zeniba and Yubaba as evil. This is called Racism also known as a classification of people into groups, when we classify people into groups we create stereotypes. This is when we think Yubaba is ugly because she’s a witch and stereotypes of witches are that they evil. Why are they evil? Because when we were kids our society and culture taught us this ideology. 

Visual Symbolism helped viewers understand the theme of Greed. The owner of the bathhouse, Yubaba is the most greedy person out there because almost every time we see her in the movie she is usually dressed in rich clothing with gold jewellery and other excessive gems. She does this so she can show her power over everyone else. For example, when Yubaba realized that the customer was giving gold she shouted “Ahh, gold! All Gold!”. But as a punishment of being greedy, the gold turned into mud. Everyone in the bathhouse is greedy but it truly shows when No face was creating gold and giving it away. When this happened everyone started to give No face delicious or exotic foods.

An example of Greed was when Chihiro parents went into a restaurant that they weren’t invited to and started eating rapidly. This symbolised both greed and gluttony, therefore, they were turned into pigs. Hayao Miyazaki did this to show the sin of greed. As said in the bible “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions”(Luke 12:15). Hayao Miyazaki is trying to show that everyone can become greedy if they are persuaded by the right things.

Visual Symbolism helped viewers understand the theme of Identity. When Chihiro signed the contract to get a job at the bathhouse, Yubaba stole parts of her name and made it Sen. This is called Contract Bestowal and is the way that Yubaba keeps the worker from escaping the bathhouse. Over time the workers eventually forget their name and lose their identity.  An example is when Yubaba said “So your names Chihiro such a pretty name (Pull characters of her name Chihiro and leaf Sen) and belongs to me now from now on your name is Sen”

But luckily Haku reminds Sen by saying “Here are your old clothes, you’ll need them to get home”. She remembers her real name and can use it escape. She also remembers Haku’s name which is Kohaku. When she was young she fell into a river and a river spirit called the Kohaku saved her. This set Haku and Chihiro free and they were able to leave the spirit world. Hayao Miyazaki could be symbolising that when you take someone’s name, you are also taking away their identity also taking away their soul.

After Yababa stole Sen’s identity (formerly known as Chihiro), Sen had to take care of herself because her parent were now pigs. This made her become more responsible for herself and her job giving her a stable identity in the bathhouse. An example of her having a stable identity is when she was offered gold from No face but refused. Chihiro learned from her father’s mistake of thinking that money can solve every problem.

She wisely chooses to do her duties instead of taking gold from No Face. No Face has never had an identity because has never had any friends or family that could teach him. He is trying to lure the bathhouse workers with gold and with want they want gold. If they accept No face will devour them and take the identity of the eaten person. Since he has the identity of the bathhouse worker he has all the greed, gluttony and viciousness and this doesn’t make him too happy because they were pretty empty on the inside. This would explain why No face wants to have Sen’s identity because she has the best identity in the bathhouse.

Furthermore, she was very respectful and kind to No face. Hayao Miyazaki wanted to symbolise No face as a Hungry ghost. Hungry ghosts are similar to no face because a hungry ghost has a mouth the size of a needle’s eye and a stomach the size of a mountain as written in Buddhist text. No face is like a hungry ghost because he had a never-ending appetite. The director Hayao Miyazaki is trying to explain that our identity is the result of other people’s identity especially close friends or family.

In the film, Spirited Away Dialogue helped viewers understand the theme of Greed. Chihiro’s father said at the start of the film “Don’t worry, you’ve got Daddy here. He’s got credit cards and cash.”. Chihiro’s father thought that wealth can compensate for lack of manners and respect. Chihiro learns from her dad’s mistakes. An example is when No face was offering gold then Chihiro said: “I don’t want any but thanks, I’m sorry but I’m in a very big hurry” and runs off. Chihiro knew that money or gold can’t solve every issue and those who give into greed with be condemned to servitude. I believe that the director Hayao Miyazaki is trying to show people the punishment of the greed, gluttony as mentioned in the seven deadly sins is paid in enslavement.

In conclusion, in the film, Spirited Away, directed by Hayao Miyazaki, several film techniques such as visual symbolism and dialogue. These techniques helped me understand the three main ideas in Spirited away is Greed, identity and Good vs Evil. The director Hayao Miyazaki got inspiration from the Christian bible, hungry ghost from the ancient Buddhist text. Furthermore, director Hayao Miyazaki was trying to show the consequences of the 7 deadly sins such as Greed, Gluttony.

Lin Waifu, she can give me a bath any day ❤

Re:Zero Starting Life in Another World

When you said that you hate yourself, it made me want to tell you all the wonderful things I know about you.

Welcome to Re:Zero, the anime where the main protagonist is realistically pathetic.  If you’ve come here expecting an over-powered badass protagonist then turn yo ass right back to One Punch Man or Dragon Ball Z lol. However, if you’re here to see best girl Rem and Ram then I highly advise you screenshot their pictures for hands-on academic purposes and pleasurable learning experience.

We have our usual otaku Natsuki Subaru. You would think he was the heir to the Subaru automobile company but you would be very disappointed. One night Subaru got the munchies and decided to visit his local Konbini (pretty much a 7-Eleven). On his way back to his apartment, he got hit by a car and boom, into another world he goes.

He gets transported to your typical RPG world in medieval times. He runs into some thieves and tries to fight them. Being the complete noob, he gets stabs and dies. THE END. Can’t be that easy right? He somehow respawns at the same starting place prior to the fight. Being as confused as the viewers at home, Subaru decides to test it out again. And to our surprise, the same thing happened. Using his limited brain cells, he was able to comprehend and concluded his ability to be “Return By Death“. Kinda like a save point on your Pokémon game.

He awkwardly meets a silver-haired half-elf cuttie called Emilia and her spirit companion Puck. Subaru was bewitched by her beauty because she was packing bro. His gaze was stuck on her like a piece of gum under a car tyre. She was searching for her “insignia” badge like thing for her royalty selection. Subaru agrees to help her find it after she saved him the ass whooping in the alley.

After a few trails and error and dying about 30 times, Subaru was able to track down the whereabouts of the insignia but was stuck with the almost impossible mission. Killing a super sexy oppai assassin Elsa whos moves are nearly as good as her curves. However, with the help of his friend Reinhart, Subaru was able to protect Emelia from her imminent death. Oh, and Loli cat girl Felt decides to return the stolen insignia to the rightful owner.

Subaru later finds himself in a super king size bed in the Roswaal mansion. At the end of the bed past his huge morning wood  dick, he sees super babe twin Rem and Ram. Rem is the sea breeze blue hair chick with the D cups while Ram is the candy floss pink hair chick who is a flat is justice candidate. Life can be unfair.

Being the broke as that Subaru is, he convinces Roswaal to hire him as a butler. After spending 3 days at the mansion, learning the ways with the twins, he mysteriously dies. After returning from death, he investigates the possible causes which all in disappointment took about 5 deaths until finally learning that it was a puny dog that bit him and gave him a curse.

It turns out multiple children in the village were also affected! Most of them wandered into the forest at night, supposedly sleepwalking and were in dangered on getting eaten by the Mabeasts. Subaru and best girl Rem decides to enter the forest to save them all. Subaru was able to distract most of the mabeasts while Rem finished them off with her kinky flail weapon. If she doesn’t make you moist then I don’t know what will. Eventually, with the help of Roswaal, they defeated all the mabeast and Rem falls in love with Subaru for saving her. Boob contact was noted. Super jealous.

The royal selection came around and Subaru escorted Emelia to the capital. We can see the royal candidates Emelia, Priscilla, Crusch, Anastasia and Felt. They are all banging in their own ways ❤ Subaru was being a huge dick in front of embarrassing not Emelia but himself. He got into some beef with the royal knights club and got his ass whooped by Julius, the top knight. This kinda gave Subaru and Emelia bad blood and made things hella awkward. Subaru at this point looks a like a madman on steroids with all his emotional bullshit that’s he was spouting.

After recovering who his beef with Julius, Subaru trains with Wilhelm in the art of sword fighting to get stronger. Rem got a telepathy message that Ram was in distress so the two decided to travel back to the mansion. Once they got there, Subaru saw a sea of dead bodies including Ram and Emelia. Just a bit late there buddy lol. After dying a few more times, he discovered that the Witch’s Cult was responsible. Betelgeuse was the fucked up mad villain of this series and he will seriously give you goosebumps.

ww.jpg

During his journey, he runs into a huggggeeeee mabeast called the White Whale. I couldn’t think of a better description because that’s really what it was lol. Rem sacrificed herself so that Subaru could escape. Barusu was able to get to the mansion but and now nobody can remember best girl Rem. Subaru confessed his return to death ability and Emelia dies. Great. Puck got pissed off, transformed into a huge wolf and kills everyone including the Witch’s Cult. After respawning, Subaru nearly gives up and plans to run away with best girl Rem to get married but was rejected.

Subaru decides to ask for help from the fellow royal candidates to defeat the White Whale. Crusch and Anastasia join the battle after a lot of negotiations. Wilhelm poked his sword into the white whale and kills it. YAY! After that Subaru was able to defeat Betelgeuse 10 times with the help of Julius. He was a stubborn one. Making up with Emelia, Subaru confessed his love to her and with no response, it plays it cool like it didn’t hurt lol.

Re:Zero has an amazingly pathetic protagonist but what I loved about this anime because it was realistic. Anyone who was thrown into a situation like that would more or less end up doing the same as Subaru. I really appreciate the storyline but making Subaru less of a useless character would have been better haha.

Rem and Ram Waifu sexy nerd cosplay. Tough decision ❤

Summer Wars

There’s no lack of painful things in this world, but hunger and loneliness must surely be two of the worst.

What do you do when the HOTTEST GIRL in school asks you out to her family gathering outside of town? Hell yeah, I would say yes. Who wouldn’t? Well, that’s kinda what happened to Kenji Koiso. A Kuonji HIgh School mathematical genius and part-time moderator for the virtual reality world of OZ. This kid was pretty much your typical socially awkward nerd who pretty much needs to get some.

One day, Kenji and his friend Takashi were messing around on their part-time job when booooom, Natsuki comes barging in and asks out of them to be her boyfriend. Natsuki informs them that she requires an escort for her great-grandmothers 90ths birthday for about 1 week. Sure why not. Little did Kenji know, that once they arrived at the Sakae’s estate in Ueda, Natsuki introduced Kenji as her fiancé. And little did he know again, the Jinnochis’ are the living descendants of the Takeda clan who challenged the Tokugawa clan in the 1600’s. Talk about a powerhouse lol.

The huge family enjoyed each other’s companies and have a great time. Kenji was fitting in just dandy and everyone thought he was the man. However because the anime world needs a little drama, the producers decide to stir up some shit. Kenji met Natsuki’s half-uncle Wabisuke Jinoichi, a coding expert who was greeted warmly (lol) for stealing the family fortune and running off to America 10 years ago. He is the creator of Love Machine, the Artificial Intelligence created for the military.

Oz is pretty much like Facebook but MUCH BIGGER. It is a virtual world that allows people to create personal avatars and engage in activities such as sports, shopping, communication you name it. OZ HAS EVERYTHING. Because it’s super easy and convenient to use the application, people become overly dependant on the system. Boasting about their super high security and how impenetrable their mega encryption was, this was sure to get hacked lol.

One night Kenji discovers King Kazma was actually a 13-year-old name Kazuma who was Natsuki’s cousin. King Kazma as you can probably tell is the king of e-sports. King Kazma is a tall bunny wearing jeans with long ears. That’s was probably the best description you’ll ever find on the internet by yours truly. That is why I will provide pictures lol. His agile fighting style and power put him in another league than the rest of the competitors.

One night, Kenji was checking his phone and received a peculiar text message from OZ. Rather than ignoring the message filled with numbers, he decides to stay up all night to crack the code. Not only that he sent the answer back lol. ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE THE NEXT DAY. It turns out that the code was actually a password that can be used to override all the systems of Oz. And since Oz is like the lifeline for every service possible in this anime, you can guess how chaotic things got. Hospital, public transport, electricity systems all went haywire. And guess who was responsible……that’s right, Kenji’s face appeared on the news as a wanted man.

It turns out the A.I Love Machine has stolen Kenji’s avatar on Oz to hack the infrastructure that was causing the whole mess. This causes modern world issues such as traffic congestion, waterway failure and even the malfunctions of electronics. The little relatives Shota and Rika Jinnouchi discovered about Kenji’s involvement in the whole incident and got their police cousin Shota to arrest him. BUUUUT because of the huge traffic they had to turn back lol.

sakae.jpg

This may possibly, nah fuck that, this was the most moving scene I have ever seen in the history of anime. The 90-year-old grandma Sakae had enough of the situation and decided to lend a helping hand. She got out her contact book filled with phone numbers and started ringing important people. She didn’t say much but the words and encouragement she gave enabled the people to work their hardest and minimise the damage. This scene deserves a grammy I swear to god. It was that good!

But, we can’t have the plot go smoothly, can we. You guessed it, the grandma dies the next morning. The doctor uncle, Mansuke explains that Love Machine deactivated her heart monitor app that notifies the hospital about abnormalities. Low blow Love Machine. Now it’s time for payback. The Jinnouchi family team up to take the AI down. A truly beautiful scene, everyone played a role in helping out. One cousin brought a supercomputer, one relative a huge crane and some ice to act as a coolant, one uncle brought some squid. And more squid. And more……. Yes, he brought 3 boxes of Squids lol. But the cooperation they had with each other truly made me want to be a part of their family for a few seconds.

The hunt for Love Machine begins. We’ve got Kazuma leading the main fight. Things were getting heated up and at first, it seems like King Kazma would win. Shit turns to custard and boom, the AI evolves and learns the attack patterns making it incredibly tricky to defeat. Idiot Shota saw the massive ice blocks around the supercomputer and decided to move it to grannys room to keep her body from decomposing. I mean he had good intentions but seriously wrong timing.

King Kazma froze due to the supercomputer overheating and Love Machine just keeps devouring other avatars Kirby lol. Now Love machine got so pissed off, he took over the Arawashi Asteroid Probe and make its crash trajectory towards a nuclear power plant in Japan. Everyone was left in despair until Natsuki found Granny’s will asking everyone to forgive Wabisuke for his actions.  Ultimately they were able to get him back and it was revealed that Love Machine loves games.

You’ve probably never heard of this but the game Natsuki used to confront Love Machine was Koi-Koi. They wagered the remaining accounts in desperation to sway Love Machine into the game like 50% discount display signs outside McDonald’s. With the help of Oz users worldwide, Natsuki was able to finally defeat Love Machine. KOI-KOI BITCH! Being a sore loser, Love Machine redirects the space probe towards the Sakae’s estate!

This was the most heated scene in the whole entire movie that will have you biting your nails. Kenji had to attempt and break into the space probes GPS through a series of complex mathematical codes. He only had like 3 minutes to solve 10 pages of code failing multiple attempts to do so. You can literally feel the pressure in your own seat as you see Kenji throwing away the pen in an attempt to crack it in his head and his nose bleed. He succeeded and redirects the space probe away from the household saving everyone!

The Jinnouchi was delighted over the victory praising Kenji as a hero.  Being pressured by 20 pairs of eyes, the family suggested that Natsuki and Kenji get married for real to repent for the lie about the engagement. The moment of truth comes and Natsuki and Keni were forced to kiss in front of the whole family. Did he do ittttttt. Nope, he got a nosebleed. On the bright side, he got a peck on the cheek so we’ll take what we can get lol. The support and warmth in this family movie were phenomenal. We can all be pests to one another but at the end of the day, we’re all family. Learn to forgive and forget because life’s too short to hold a grudge.

Natsuki Waifu, cute, sexy and fierce 😉 ❤

Your Lie In April

Music speaks louder than words.

Lies are generally frowned upon within our modern day society. No matter how big or small a lie is still a lie. Your Lie in April revolves around a hugeeeeee lie that will leave you heartbroken and possibly bedridden for the next month contemplating your very own existence and life choices. Oh yeah, this shit was sad. This anime is the very definition of YOLO combined with the elegant classical masterpieces that will leave you in awe.

This anime revolves around a piano prodigy, Kōsei Arima. People call him the Human Metronome for his incredible accuracy but I call him an absolute beast. He’s won so many competitions that his trophy cabinet is overfilled to the point where it’s about to topple over. Ever since his mother passed away, Kōsei loses his ability to hear the sound of music he’s playing. Its described as sinking into a sea of black abyss that was very dense and heavy. Nothing was wrong with his hearing, but however, the kid was mentally and emotionally scarred.

Losing all hope in his ability, Kōsei forgets about the piano and moves on with his now monochrome life. It has been 4 years since he has touched his piano and that shit was probably a nest for spiders now. One day, Kosei was hanging out with his friends in a local park and suddenly hears something incredibly beautiful. As he turned to face the sakura blossoms floating in the air he was bewitched by the sight of our waifu Kaori Miyazono.

Kaori is fun, free-spirited violinist with a music style that somewhat reflects her quirky upbeat personality. Her rebellious tendencies to not stick to the score captures the heart of the audience but is disliked by many judges and critics. She is keen in helping the prodigy get back on his feet again. She feels sorry for him and wants to see a new side of him, unlike his usual tempo-manic style. However, like all anime, Kaori decides to go out with Kosei’s best friend, Watari. I don’t blame her, he was the captain of the soccer team and pretty much the whole package. This was the FIRST LIE.

What good would a love anime be without a couple of love triangles here and there? We’ve got the childhood friend Tsubaki who has been in love with Kosei since they were young. Kosei’s inspiration for playing so well in his first competition was the death of Tsubaki’s grandmother. He just wanted to cheer her up but instead ends up making her moist.

You’re probably thinking, where is the actual lie in all of this? Well just wait a bit longer and all shall be revealed. Kaori somehow manages to convince Kōsei to perform with her on stage. And suddenly out of nowhere she collapses after an amazing performance. Her SECOND LIE was that she’s anaemic and has been ever since she was little. Her disease was Friedreich’s Ataxia. To put it simply, her nervous system was breaking down causing damage with her muscles, speech and ultimately leading to a heart disease.

Despite that, she soldiers on after being discharged and invites Kōsei to another music event. But hello, she faints again at the event. 10/10 for effort though. Poor Kaori losing hope and giving up on life. Kōsei had to soldier on and played a duet with Nagi Aiza. After hearing the duet, Kaori was balling her eyes out and decides to undergo the risky surgery in hope of being able to play next Kōsei again.

Push comes to shove Kōsei musters up the courage and a pair of balls to enter the Eastern Japan Piano Competition. Looking around for Kaori in the crowd, she was sitting there in the back row smiling. Kosei realizes that this was actually her spirit and that her surgery was unsuccessful. The sorrow from each key was projected to the crowd allowing them to connect the Kōsei’s emotions from the bottom of his heart. Oh, and when you hear him say “Sanoyara“, you better get that box of tissues ready.

Not only can you witness the PSYCHO childhood upbringing of the metronome prodigy but you can also experience the people he inspired throughout his journey. With the beautiful sakura blossom transitions into fall, this anime will seriously leave a good impression and a long-lasting nostalgia. The friendship formed between the 4 was no doubt beautiful. Arima’s dependancy towards Tsubaki and but mainly Kaori was the most tragic love story since Romeo and Juliet. The letter symbolising the acceptance of his feelings, but also trying to help him move on with his life as Kaori thought Kōsei didn’t see her as a true lover but more of a musical partner.

Kaori declaring her love for Watanabe for everyone to know was the “Your Lie in April”. Remember the first lie I talked about? Well, at Kaori’s funeral, her parents handed a handwritten letter to Kōsei. We find out that Kaori was in love with Kōsei the entire time!!!!! She was only using Watari to get closer to Kosei without hurting Tsubaki’s feelings. Not all is bad, 2nd waifu is still alive and she confessed to Kōsei and promised to stay by his side for the rest of his life.

Rest in piece Kaori Waifu 😦 ❤

Mob Psycho 100

The truth behind one’s charm is kindness. Become a good person. That is all.

colour.png

Let me take you on an adrenaline-packed ride, powered by 4 cans of Red Bull as I splurge my emotions into this post. I know what you’re thinking. Another high school anime with superpowers how lame! Well MOB PSYCHO 100 get’s 100 points from me. Dry comedy has always been my favourite and if you loved One Punch Man, this will satisfy your munchies more than any pot brownie can.

We’ve got our buddy Mob. His real name is Shigeo Kageyama but who the hell wants to call him that. From his fragile physical appearance and pale complexion, you’ll be convinced that he’s either a malnourished Ethiopian boy or a starving vampire. But don’t let that fool you, my friend, Mob has a secret that he’s been hiding. Mob has an enormous dick psychic potential that can mop the floor with anyone he faces.

He is your typical middle school student at Salt Middle School.  His main interests are the Body Improvement club and his side job as an exorcist. What a mix lol. If I had to summarize the character in 2 words, it would be a nervous wreck. He’s socially awkward to the point that I feel awkward just watching him haha. However, under all that social awkwardness lies a hidden apathetic monster that’s ready to unleash chaos to the world. But that’s only when his emotions reach 100% so don’t worry.

His master, Arataka Reigen is the best psychic in the whole entire world! (Self-proclaimed). Owner of Spirits and Such Consultation Office, you can see Reigen take advantage of clients and scam them for money on the get-go. What’s more hilarious is that Reigen himself doesn’t even have any psychic powers, just cheap tricks and bandwagoning off Mob’s powers to get the job done. Nonetheless, people actually believe him and Mob looks up to him as an idol.

With all the cheapskate talk about him out of the way, Reigen is actually a decent human being. He has a lot of principles making him a walking bag of contradictions. However, the good thing about that is he believes that hurting others is wrong. Mob is often reminded so with a display of moral lessons and shady side business from his master.

A rollercoaster full of vivid colours will get projectile vomited into your face as mob unleashes his psychic powers. From the first episode as Mob is called in as a backup to get rid of an evil spirit in an infamous tunnel. Just throw some salt on them you say. Well, that’s what Reigen did but instead, it was table salt so it didn’t do shit lol. After witnessing a display of powerful talk and no bite, Mob takes down the spirit without any shred of mercy.

club.jpg

The comedy in the anime is pure class lads. The Telepathy club at Mobs high school was at a risk of being disbanded by the principal due to a lack of numbers. They were going to be replaced by the Body Improvement Club. The obvious choice would be for Mob to join the Telepathy club and help out right? The sudden unexpected decisions make this anime legendary and no fucks were given when mob chose the Body Improvement Club as he reflected back on his life. 

And of course, it wouldn’t be a supernatural, action anime without some fights, right? Salt Middle school got into some beef with Black Vinegar Middle School. Mob somehow gets kidnapped by the Black Vinegar delinquents and all hell breaks loose as his senpai goes to rescue him. Now steps out another psychic, Teru who brings down the senpais in a flash.

Noticing Mob’s powers, Teru challenges him to a duel of psychic abilities. Mob being a soft bitch refuses to fight back as it goes against his morals. Chairs and ki blasts were being thrown at Mob with increasing ferocity. Mob blocks them all with ease. Teru got closer to him and pinned him to a wall. Mob emotional percentage was rising towards 100%. He sticks to his moral and refuses to fight and passes out due to anaphylaxis. This awakens the ???% form that has never been seen before and blasts Teru butt naked into the sky. Bye bye, bald naked boy.

dimple.jpg

Oh, I almost forgot to mention the most useless important character in the whole anime Dimple! He is an upper-class spirit with red cheeks who excels at possessing humans. He was able to start a cult LOL but was dissolved by Mob. Dimple then becomes harmless and actually joins Mob in his adventures waiting for the opportunity to possess the psychic genius. He only got as far as possessing Ritsu and awakened his psychic powers following his brothers’ footsteps. 

Mob attracted the attention on of evil organisation Claw. These guys were the real deal psychic/esper threat. I’ll give you snippets of the fight against Megumu Koyama who was probably the only person who gave Mob the hardest time. His special ability was Telekinesis Hex which involves him condensing his psychic powers to his fight allowing him to break through psychic barriers. Nonetheless, Mob pulls through with his awakening but looses due to a cheap trick of knockout gas. THIS SCENE MADE ME SO ANGRY ARGRGRGRGRGRG. Koyama has it coming anyway.

The BEST fight in the anime was when Reigen fights with the Claw members. Mob somehow was able to transfer his powers to Reigen. Being the master that Mob looks up to, he finally shows his true potential and protects his student from danger. I cannot express how happy I was in this scene, it was pure bliss to finally see Reigen talk the talk for once with his weird attacks. Anxiously waiting for season 2 because the whole Claw organisation has not been crushed yet!

How Not To Summon A Demon Lord

What’s this suddenly erect, hard peak among the softness?!?!

demon

How Not To Summon A Demon Lord is an anime that sits somewhere in between Ecchi and PUSHING THE FUCKING BOUNDARIES OF HENTAI. On one side you’ve got Voluptuous Oppai and on the other side, you’ve got the Flat Is Justice type of girls. Nothing in between. Nonetheless, this is an anime with SEVERAL fan service moments that will entertain your lonely single soul and keep you awake throughout the night.

You’ve got your not so average otaku gamer, Takuma Sakamoto. The very elite in the popular MMORPG, Cross Reverie. He goes by the name of Demon Lord Diablo, king of the underworld. Now he was OP as hell, kinda like Ains in Overlord where he would destroy anyone who dares to cross his path. He’s got all the items, spells and strategies nailed down to perfection.

One evening, during Takuma’s gaming session marathon, he gets mysteriously transported into the game! Now Takuma has transformed into Diablo from the game! We come across two characters who summoned him into the game, Rem and Shera. They were planning to make Tamura their servant but the spell they cast backfired and reflected onto them. Now the two girls have metal collars on their necks and become the slaves of the great demon lord Diablo.

Takuma is one funny character. Combining his social anxiety and past non-existent interactions with women makes it funny as hell to watch. To be able to see and occasionally touch large boobs ignites the rocket in his pants lol. He takes advantage of the situation and acts like his character Diablo to intimidate people. Although everyone ends up loving him despite his inappropriate comments at the best of times lol.

He travels with Rem and Shera so that they can find a way to remove the slave collars. They run into a lot of trouble in Cross Reverie but Diablo tries his best to lend a helping hand with his friends and nations personal issues. Despite having the vast knowledge of the game, not everything is an exact replica so Diablo spends the majority of the time figuring life out one step at a time.

A few episodes in and we find out the Demon Lord Krebskulm’s soul resides in Rem. I’m not sure how a big demon lord is able to fit inside such a tiny little girl. Diablo being the pushover nice guy decides to help Rem find a way to extract the demon lord from her. You’ll see in a minute what I meant by pushing the boundaries of hentai………

The first display of power was when Diablo was fighting with Galluk and the drunken mages. This guy was a real A-Hole from the beginning. He summoned his level 40 salamander which admittedly looks aggressive, breathing fire and shit. To Diablo’s surprise, this was actually weak AF for someone who’s a level 150 Demon Lord. Diablo not holding back, fires his explosion magic at the Salamander turning it into a BBQ Lizard.

Shera is actually the princess of the Elven kingdom. Her dickhead brother, Keera demands that they return the princess otherwise the kingdom of Greenwood will wage war on Faltra. Keera only wants to marry Sheera to gain power over the kingdom. That and he’s got a thing for his sister. I don’t blame him  What a sicko…….  Not taking any shit, Diablo retaliates, stands his ground and lets Shera go? Wait wtf? Hold up. Keera was actually playing dirty and used a mind control flute on Sheera. Nonetheless, 3 days later Diablo barges into the Prince’s camp and annihilates everyone. Diablo ends up fighting a hydra which is probably the best fight in the entire anime.

The adventure is very entertaining even though they don’t travel very far. The most mundane things that you do in a game instantly becomes a source of comedy when Diablo tries to execute it in real life. Everything from making potions, breaking curses and making friends instantly becomes super perverted with the help of Shera and Rem. Till this day, Diablo still doesn’t know how he made potions. All he does is stare at a pair of Oppais and they magically appear in his hands lol.

They met a fallen angel commander Edelgard, who claims to know the way to separate Krebskulm from Rems body. At this point, every other anime watcher will give up watching due to the explicit fan service. But not me. I SOLDERED ON SO THAT I COULD LIVE TO TELL THE STORY TO YOU GUYS.  Long story short, Diablo had to pour his magical energy into Rem to force out Krebslumb. Because pouring his energy through her stomach wasn’t cutting it, he was forced to get closer. That’s right people, he had to stick a finger into her loli sausage pocket! You can imagine the rest lol.

The demon came out and it wasn’t really what I or anyone was expecting…… She was another Justice is Flat member, Klem. Because the resurrection wasn’t performed correctly, Klem is actually a nice demon lord who loves biscuits lol. But don’t let that fool you, her inner demon was awakened again due to the death of Rem from the backstabbing bitch Alicia. You’ll find out who she is and you’ll hate her as well.

Now the big battle against Diablo and Krebskulm was happening. He was pretty much getting his ass whooped. But luckily Rem wasn’t dead as Shera went to revive her with potions. Klem calmed down and transformed back to her normal self. You got off the hook this time Diablo lol. The fight was pretty intense but if it went on any longer, Diablo would have died for sure lol.

final fight

If you’ve managed to watch all the episodes and enjoyed it then congratulations! You’re a true harem/ecchi fan that’s crazy for fan service! I think we should go get this checked out lol. At the end of the anime, they hint to the second season. Not sure how i feel about th  BRING ON THE OPPAIS!!!!!!

Assassination Classroom

Whether a fish lives in a clear stream or a water ditch, so long as it continues swimming forward, it will grow up beautifully.

Welcome to the world of Assassination Classroom. An anime about a group of teenagers who are tasked with the duty of killing their perverted octopus homeroom teacher. Gotta give it to Japan on this one because nothing will top that shit off lol. If you think this anime is going to be about octopus hentai then you’re absolutely fucking correct going to be mildly disappointed lol. Please do not try to assassinate your teachers in real life, because they may actually die lol.

Let’s talk about the Octopus in the room first. Koro-Sensei is an intelligent, perverted and extremely fast yellow ball of slime that loves snacks. This yellow octopus has one goal, and that is to destroy the earth by March next year. You’re probably thinking, what the hell can a yellow octopus do? WELL. Look at what he did to the frikken moon! He claimed to have destroyed 70% of the moon’s surface just from farting sneezing. Now that shit is permanently in a crescent shape lol

Koro-Sensei enjoys a challenge. All of the governments attempt to assassinate him have failed. Guns, missiles, nuclear you name it, he’s indestructible. In my opinion, they should have used Naruto’s sexy jutsu lol.  He with one of the most ridiculous offers that I’ve ever heard. He will specifically teach at Kunugigaoka Junior High School, Class E and allow ONLY his students to kill him. By doing so, he promised to extend the deadline of earth’s destruction.

Kunugigaoka Junior High School minding its own business is about to get thrown into this unexpected mess. Now we have Class-E, the rejects of the school who are pretty much delinquents with bad grades. With that said, they are my favourite class in the school because of how nice they actually are. The class is located behind the main school on a hill and Koro-Sensei comes busting through the roof or door I can’t remember lol.

If they succeed in killing him, the government will award them with 10 billion yen or 100 million USD! Now the kids in Class E were like wtf? As easy as it may sound to kill a yellow perverted octopus, they couldn’t even get close. Super intelligence, Mach 20 speed and a lewd sense of humour this makes for a perverted comedy anime. Koro-Sensei is teaching the students regular subjects, but he is also teaching them the ways of assassination. Tbh he’s such a good teacher and he really cares about his students helping each individual improve their grades and skills for their future.

Regular guns and bombs and stuff aren’t effective against Koro-Sensei. They just can’t hurt his slimy gooey body. The government have devolved special weapons called Anti Sensei Weapons which are made of some rubber material that’s effective against his anti-matter body. Harmless against a human but slices through Koro-sensei like tofu. They are usually green or pink in colour and comes in many forms such as knives, grenades, bullets etc.

We have the main characters Nagisa and Karma. The red and blue hair duo are rivals and sort of like Naruto and Sasuke. They don’t exactly get along that well but it’s enough for them to be cooperative. Nagisa doesn’t have any particular skills but utilises what he has to his advantage making him the best assassin as the story goes on. Karma has the brains, looks and strength to beat the shit out of anyone he comes across. According to Nagisa, Karma has a violent nature and loves to fight. That’s why he’s been shifted to many schools and now ended up in class E.

Later on, there was an addition of Karasuma and Irina aka Bitch Sensei as the students called her lol. These two low key have a thing for each other and they fall for each other at the end of the anime lol. Karasuma the strictest teacher you’ll ever come across in your life but also glad that he’s on your side. It’s also funny how Bitch Sensei is always hitting on him but gets curved everytime lol.

As the series continues, shit pretty much hits the fan. Many assassins come after Koro-Senseis life for the reward and ultimately the kids get caught up in it too. However, you can see the development of the kid’s teamwork and personal growth as they overcome challenges. Nagisa receives the most improved award due to his hard work and death clap. He also has a list of Koro-Senseis weakness that comes in handy for the whole class as they try to assassinate him every day.

UP to this point, you’re probably asking why Class-E at this specific high school???? And why did the most powerful creature on earth become a teacher? Wellllll. Believe it or not, Koro-Sensei was actually a human not so long ago. He was a part of an experiment for antimatter and was tested on for years. There he met a quirky lab assistant named Aguri Yukimura, the former teacher of Class-E. She was kind, funny and smart. Everyone is Class-E loved her. However, she was killed trying to protect Koro-Sensei as he was escaping the lab.

Koro-Sensei honoured her last dying wish and decided to become a teacher himself. You can see that he got his human characteristics and values of teaching from Aguri. And asking permission to teach in class E and threatening to destroy earth was the only way he could look after them. DEBUNKING the myth that he destroyed the moon, it was actually a lab rat that had undergone the same antimatter experiments that blew up the moon as its decreased lifespan came to an end. This means that Koro-Sensei’s death was inevitable from the start. Very sad when I found this out.

Koro-Sensei actually was the best assassin in the word known as the God of Death or Shinigami. He had an apprentice who backstabbed him during a prison break and handed Koro-Sensei to Shiro for the antimatter experiments. You’ll see them fighting in the final battle and it was pretty intense. BUT the saddest part of it was that Koro-Sensei instructed the class to kill him before his time was up. EVERYONE STARTED CRYING AND BALLING THEIR FUCKING EYES OUT BRO. I mean their beloved teacher asked them to end his life was probably the saddest thing I’ve ever seen. In the end, it was Nagisa would perform the assassination and said the last goodbye.

If you’re a teacher or a shitty delinquent looking for some inspiration, I’m pretty sure you can find it in this anime. The Koro-Sensei everyone loved sacrificed himself to the very ends to see his students. Although he wasn’t there to congratulate them on their graduation, he remained in their hearts till the very end.  The amount of dedication and protection will tug all your heartstrings and make you cry a few waterfalls. Loads of respect for the writers of this anime ❤
