Akagami no Shirayuki-hime/Snow White with red hair Anime Series Review

If you like really cute anime that has a cute little love story then you will love this!
Shirayuki is an herbalist who runs away from her home town because of reasons and ends up meeting Zen. If you have seen Snow White... well... It's similar but definitely different but you get the point. :)

You see how she becomes close to Zen and tries her best to make her life better without the help of others. Of course, having others there does help. 

It's hard to give a complete summary of the series without giving away things but just watch it! It's so cute and I can't stop smiling while watching it. It's so cute! There are some sad parts but it's such a warming anime and I definitely would watch it again after it is complete. 
I can't wait for the next episode. I enjoy it thoroughly.
 I'm definetly going to read the manga and probably collect it once it's published in english. :)

Now I'm going to leave you with a bunch of gifs of the show. 

Rokka no Yuusha/ Braves of the six flowers Anime Review

This one is not complete as of yet but I thought I would start my review now since I'm waiting for the newest episode to come out.

I was pretty interested in this anime in the beginning. However, the episodes have now become a magical 'Clue' show. The young ones that read my reviews might not know what I'm talking about if you never seen it or played the board game. Basically, it's a 'who killed mr. rogers with the spoon' but instead of killing... it's 'who set the trap at the temple and faked being a brave'?! 
It's cool and all but after 5 episodes or more... It gets old.

The characters are alright. The main dude, Adlet, is a arrogant man who thinks he's awesome... "I'm the strongest man in the world!", but really he's just trying to make himself think that way so he can feel better about himself. He's enjoyable for the most part.

Neshatania is a spoiled princess and no matter how nice she is, she annoys the crap out of me. Maybe cause I think another girl should be with Adlet but that's just me. >.> Besides being a brave, you don't really care about knowing much more about her. You have no idea why she has bunny ears on. It's a pointless mystery.

Goldof is Neshatania's knight. I have to admit... He's pretty hot. Don't really know why he's into the princess besides maybe her boobs... >.> Not much is known about him. 

Flamey/Fremy is my favorite because she is a no nonsense type of person and I think she looks awesome. If I cosplayed, I would totally cosplay her. Her outfit is silly though. How her boobs don't fall out is a mystery. You find out about her later once you watch it. :) 

Then there are the other kids that I really don't have very much interest in but you might as well know their names. Not much of a back story on the others but here is what I do know. 

Mora is a saint of the 'mountain'. (Apparently saints are the only ones with powers and girls are the only ones that can be saints. Not much else is known.) As well as head of the 'temple of the whole world.' Whatever that is.... The concept of these characters are rather stupid... 

Hans is a cat assassin person. Apparently he learned his moves from cats? I don't even know... He's cute in a weird way though. lol

Chamo is a crazy little girl. Seriously, crazy. All she wants to do is kill and hurt people. I really don't see how she became a brave to begin with but whatever.

I think that's it? Maybe? Eh, anyway. 
Oh yeah! The monsters in this anime are CGI and that just brings it down. It's not even good CGI. I also don't know how a lot of these characters became braves when they are crazy people. What's up with that? The goddess must be having her time of the month or something to pick most of these people. I just don't understand. She could have done better. 
Anyway, I just want it to get to point and stop acting like a 'who done it' anime. It shouldn't even be about that right now. YOU HAVE TO STOP THE END OF THE WORLD! NOW GET TO THE POINT! CHOP CHOP!

Bungaku Shoujo Anime Series/Movie Review

I had high hopes for this anime. I really did. 
I thought it was going to be different.
It was just ALL over the place. With the series and then the movie. I'm not really sure if I should have watched the move first or not but I felt like there wasn't really a good point to this show/movie. I mean, it did have one and I felt like it could have been better if they put it together correctly... but they didn't.
I understand that it was called a book/literature girl but I thought that it was going to be more about her and Konoha.(Really, it wasn't about her AT ALL.) Instead, it was all over the place with random stories about Konoha and other girls and one girl in particular during the movie. I mean, it's fine to know who those people are and everything but I would much rather know more about Touko and Konoha. 
You see things about Konoha meeting a girl, Miu, at school when he was younger and shows a little about them being together in the series and a little in the movie. Which is good to know about the back story. However, If it's going to be called Book/literature girl then it really should be more about her.

But then it goes back and forth between him and her and him and Touko(Literature girl), who, by the way, can only eat books.  (You would think that, that would be interesting enough for a series but NOPE....)

Then it was all over the place with other characters that REALLY didn't have anything to do with anything in the series. (I heard that the manga was completely different and I'm sure they had more roles in there...)

I mean, it's good to know them a little but I felt like they were just kind of pointless episodes. If it was a longer show, maybe it would have been entertaining but it wasn't. 

So, apparently, Miu is nuts and wants Konoha all to her self in a really crazy way.... She also has a big imagination and seems to want to be a writer? Hell, I don't even know. Anyway, Konoha writes a book with her and his name, Miu Inoue. She then gets upset about it and tries to kill her self multiple times. Most of the time, I get why some people think about that stuff but this bitch is crazy and I hated her from the first moment she was brought to the screen. (you will understand if you watch it.) She needs a mental institution.

I feel like the ending of the movie was pretty good though. You do have to watch after the credits a little but I still wanted more about Konoha and Touko.

I'm going to end this with how I feel like the manga should be much much better with a lot more detail.

K anime series/movie review

I saw this on Netflix and decided to give it a try.
I felt like this story need a little more information in it but, in general, you get the point of the story. I really enjoyed watching this. The details and shots in this anime were wonderful. I thoroughly enjoyed watching the fighting scenes.

I have to say that my favorite characters were from the red kings, Mikoto(Love!), crew, Tatara, Shiro and Neko.

^^^ Mikoto and his crew. Tatara is on the very end on the left.

^^^^ Shiro and Neko.

It does have it's fan service in so beware of that if you don't like boobs or butts in your face.

You really start to care for some of the characters though. At least I did. I really didn't want it to end.

Let me just say, the movie was not on netflix. So, you will have to find it somewhere else. *cough* Internet*cough*
I heard they are suppose to make a second movie or second season (Which I really hope they dooooo.) that will help complete the first movie. 

Be aware that this might make you teary eyed.

Like I said before.... They leave a little bit of info out and I felt a little confused about who real body was whos? (you will understand once you watch). I think it would have made more sense if they had shown all of the kings at the beginning but that's just my opinion. 

Anyway, I really enjoyed this show and I am definetly going to watch the next movie or season. Whichever they pick.

By the way, I'm addicted to the ending song.
I'm just going end this with a few .gifs. :)

Alpha Girl Romance Novel Review??? YES! ROMANCE NOVEL!

Ok, so as you can tell from the title of this review, it is a ROMANCE novel. Strange for me to review this, I know. It will be alright. Calm down. If you haven't read a romance novel then I completely understand if you just wanna skip this one. This is going to be a "meh" kind of review so if you are interested in read a romance novel... Don't make this one your first. It's not that great if you don't like a LOT of drama. It's more like a soap opera.
As many of you know, I love romance anime/manga. So, of course I will try romance novels. 
I have read quiet a few romance novels. All of them being paranormal because I just can't get into normals. WAY to boring for my taste. Lately I have been having a kick out of werewolves more than vampires. Maybe because I love wolves? Maybe because I love their strength? Or maybe because I love the thought of being able to transform? Heck, MAYBE ALL OF THE ABOVE!
I was pretty interested in the novel because of the plot. Witches, or should I say ... brujas, werewolves, vampires, as actual undead instead of being perfect beings. I love some witches in the mix. I've always loved witches since I was little. 
I have, however, read some reviews about this and I have to agree.. It does run like a soap. I don't mind having a big drama going down but having more than 2 going down.... Well, it gets old after a while. 
I really like the characters and I enjoy reading about them. (Although, it doesn't really give that much detail about the characters, which is disappoint because I enjoy them.) I feel like it could go a lot faster though. It's just going to slow. It's like.... hmm.... talking about a plan to much and not enough action? To much lead up and not enough of the actual plan. I hate waiting so I really just want to skip right to the action. This story goes through 4 volumes so far. The 5th volume comes out next month. 
So you can imagine how long it takes....
By the way, at the beginning, everything happens pretty quickly and I enjoyed it but at the end of the first volume... NOTHING happened... I mean, things did happen but NO romance and no information on things that were mentioned in the first volume... The second volume starts to give you information about other things and helps with the things that you found out in the first volume but when I started the third volume and STILL no romance. So I can't even really call this a romance novel because there is really NOTHING going on. I mean, there is romance but when you think of a romance novel you think of more than just kissing, if you get my drift. ;) Well, there was kissing but other than that... nothing.
The 4th volume, I didn't even bother with because it completely ignored the 4th volume. Volume 4 changed characters. I absolutely, positively HATE that. If you want to change characters, make it their own series. I don't wanna know about their whole story unless you make a series just for them. I want back to the main story, which is about Tessa and Dastien.
I do plan on trying to read the 5th volume because I enjoy the characters. I just hope that it will get to the point in this volume. 

My point is... If you enjoy a lot of drama, then you will most likely like this series and will probably read all the way through it. Unfortunately for me, I had to skip through it. I did read two and a half books in two days because I really enjoyed the characters. I just got tired of the drama going down one after another. You really can't get into the romance with all the drama going down.
But I hope the 5th volume will get down to the business. I just hope it's not slow....
3.5 out of 5 stars for me.

Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha Anime Review

Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha.

I thought this anime was SO CUTE! I mean, seriously, so cute! Of course, knowing me, I don't read the summaries. I just dive right into an anime. :P 

This anime is basically about a girl named Inari, who goes to an Inari shrine all the time. She makes a wish and she meets the Inari god, Uka-sama. Things basically turn into a little bit of a mess and she has trials and tribulations with continuing to do things with godly powers. Plus! Learning about new friends and love.

I personally think it's a really good anime. It's more about learning how to overcome your own fears and stand up for yourself, learn to be more confident and know that a true friend will always be there for you.

HOWEVER! There are a few things that bothered me at the very end... Such as... How her brother can see gods? What happens to his relationship. What happens to her friends relationship. (You will realize once you watch it and I'm sure you will totally ship it! Cause I DOOOOOO!) 

OP music is pretty catchy. Kind of reminds me of Kamisama Hajimemashita. 

Art is pretty normal. Nothing to special.

Gokukoku no Brynhildr Anime Review

Gokukoku no Brynhildr.

So, this anime was interesting, to say the least. The OP/EN music was pretty awesome. I definitely wasn't expecting that type of music for this anime. 
The story, kind of, reminded me of Elfen Lied. Although they are similar, they are very different at the same time. 

The girls in this show are witches and the dude is just a regular human. The witches escape from the lab they were torchered by and the lab is looking for them. Each witch has a special ability.

The boy is just a regular human, like I said. When he was a child, he had a childhood friend, who he was obviously in love with, that died. Then he meets this witch that looks exactly like her. 

It's basically about them and some other friends, witches, trying to stay away from the lab. 

The story was pretty good but a LOT of things were left out by the end of the series. 
For example...
His family.
Her family.
What happened to (Can't tell you details because it would ruin it, sort of ?) the girl she was fighting at the end?
What happened to the girls at the end?
One of the main girls memories?
How did one girl still live without her 'mechanics'.
Did they cure them?
Did they get medicine?


So, if you completely just skip over all of that and more and just stick with the main story then you will be alright.
I just like knowing back story....There was none of that here.

But all in all, it was ok. 

Be warned... It has it's perversion in it. It doesn't really show anything though. Just be warned that you probably shouldn't watch it around kids. Just saying.

The art was rather pretty though. It wasn't anything special but it was nice.

I did watch this in 1.25 days. It's really short but I was pretty addicted to finish it.
So although it had it's flaws, I enjoyed watching it.
