Goku, the weakest Saiyan

Ok, before you call me liar, idiot and who knows what else,  just hear me out.

dragon_ball___kid_goku_31_by_superjmanplay2-d77fpd7

I have seen the anime, just like about every one on the planet, and I know Goku turns out to be the greatest warrior of the universe and would be able to destroy the whole world with one attack. But before DBZ, Goku actually struggled to defeat simple humans. kid_prince_vegeta_by_maffo1989-d96mdin

Let´s compare Goku as a kid, with Vegeta Kid, Gohan, Goten and any other Saiyan on the series as a Kid. Any one would kick Goku´s ass by far. Only a little of Vegeta´s childhood was ever shown, but we can tell that he was a total badass. Even Gohan, the crybaby, showed a lot of strenght when he got angry. No Saiyan character ever shown was as week as Goku as a kid. If i am wrong, I ask that you correct me in the comment section.gohanpequeparapelear

But even so, I have always enjoyed watching little Goku train to win the martial arts tournament, only to see him loose against a human opponent.

 

I have noticed that there are a lot of DBZ and DB Super fans out there that haven´t watched the original Dragon Ball. If you are one of those people, i recommend that you watch it, and after that write me your opinion in the Comment section.

Kuroko no Basuke (Kuroko´s Basketball)

basketball-players-in-kuroko-no-basket-wallpaper-5120x2880

Genre: Comedy, School, Shounen, Sports

Plot Summary: Teikou Junior High School’s basketball team is crowned champion three years in a row thanks to five outstanding players who, with their breathtaking and unique skills, leave opponents in despair and fans in admiration. However, after graduating, these teammates, known as “The Generation of Miracles,” go their separate ways and now consider each other as rivals.

At Seirin High School, two newly recruited freshmen prove that they are not ordinary basketball players: Taiga Kagami, a promising player returning from the US, and Tetsuya Kuroko, a seemingly ordinary student whose lack of presence allows him to move around unnoticed. Although Kuroko is neither athletic nor able to score any points, he was a member of Teikou’s basketball team, where he played as the “Phantom Sixth Man,” who easily passed the ball and assisted his teammates.

Kuroko no Basket follows the journey of Seirin’s players as they attempt to become the best Japanese high school team by winning the Interhigh Championship. To reach their goal, they have to cross pathways with several powerful teams, some of which have one of the five players with godlike abilities, whom Kuroko and Taiga make a pact to defeat.

What I think: This is the second sports anime I´m into (the first was Hajime no Ippo). What makes this series great is the comedy and the exciting games.

I´m pretty sure that anyone would like this anime, even if they don´t like Basketball. The main story is about this sport, but the characters growth and personal stories are just as interesting as the sports part.

One thing that made me love this anime, was that I could relate to the main character. Usually the main character is the best player, or the strongest one. But in Kuroko no Basuke the main character (Kuroko) is actually the worst player in the team. The great thing about him is his ability to support his teammates.

The Seven deadly Sins

7deadlysins_sdp-1-1-copy

Genres: Action, Adventure, Ecchi, Fantasy, Shounen, Supernatural
Plot summary: In a world similar to the European Middle Ages, the feared yet revered Holy Knights of Britannia use immensely powerful magic to protect the region of Britannia and its kingdoms. However, a small subset of the Knights supposedly betrayed their homeland and turned their blades against their comrades in an attempt to overthrow the ruler of Liones. They were defeated by the Holy Knights, but rumors continued to persist that these legendary knights, called the “Seven Deadly Sins,” were still alive. Ten years later, the Holy Knights themselves staged a coup d’état, and thus became the new, tyrannical rulers of the Kingdom of Liones.
What I think: This is another series that I was reluctant to watch, but ended up enjoying. I love the Fantasy scenery and the fight scenes. It also has great music, it reminded me of the music in Fairy Tail.
I think the downside of the anime is that the main Character isn´t very relatable or lovable. It´s kinda like he has two personalities: The serious, strong, badass Hero and the idiot, pervert who just cares about women and underwear. In my opinion, the writers should have stuck with the hero personality and find another way to add comedy to the show. But all in all still The seven deadly sins is worth watching.

Btooom! Review

fd16e4a8ada302acc780fcdc453838201349203837_full

Genres: Action, Drama, Ecchi, Sci-Fi, Psychological, Seinen

Plot summary: Sakamoto Ryouta is an unemployed 22-year-old who lives with his mother. In the real world, there may be nothing really special about him, but online, he’s one of the world’s top players of the combat game “BTOOOM”!

One day, he awakes in what appears to be a tropical island, though he has no memory of how or why he has come to be there. While wandering around, Ryuuta sees someone and calls out for help. The stranger responds by throwing a bomb at him! Now Ryuuta realizes both that his life is in danger, and that he has somehow been trapped in a real-life version of his favorite game! Will Ryuuta be able to survive long enough to figure out how and why he ended up here?

What I think: Ok, I have to be honest with you. I haven´t finished watching this anime, mostly because of the fanservice. I am not sure if I should be writing this review, but I´m gonna do my best to review the first half of the series, and you can fill me in with the review of the last half in the comments if you have seen it.

Well as I said, the fanservice kinda ruined it for me. Even though this genre has been exploited a lot lately, I think the writers did a good job in creating something new and exciting. I am very curious how the series is going to end. But for some reason i think i will be disapointed. Again, your comments would be apreciated.

Katanagatari Review

205029

Genres: Action, Adventure, Historical, Martial Arts, Romance

Plot Summary: In an Edo-era Japan lush with a variety of sword-fighting styles, Shichika Yasuri practices the most unique one: Kyotouryuu, a technique in which the user’s own body is wielded as a blade. The enigmatic seventh head of the Kyotouryuu school, Shichika lives quietly in exile with his sister Nanami until one day—the wildly ambitious strategist Togame barges into their lives.

Togame brazenly requests that Shichika help in her mission to collect twelve unique swords, known as the “Deviant Blades,” for the shogunate. Shichika accepts, interested in the girl herself rather than petty politics, and thus sets out on a journey. Standing in their way are the fierce wielders of these legendary weapons as well as other power-hungry entities who seek to thwart Togame’s objective. In order to prevail against their enemies, the duo must become an unbreakable team as they forge ahead on a path of uncertainty and peril.

What I think: The art on this one could be better. The drawings are very simple for such a short Anime. It has only 12 episodes but each episode is 50 minutes long.

The story however is a lot better. It´s not very complex but you might need to read up un some Japanese history, if you aren´t familiar with it already. But if you are not interested in studying History just to watch Anime, dont worry to much about it. You will probably get the hang of it after the first episode.

Besides the story, there is also the comedy, the main character can be very clueless leading to funny situations. And there are also some pretty awesome fight scenes.

You should check this out if you like martial arts Anime.

Future Card Buddyfight

maxresdefault

Genre: Games, comedy, adventure

Plot Summary: Future Card Buddyfight takes place in a more futuristic version of today. The card game connects to a parallel universe through special cards (Buddy Rare Cards) that act as portals. They bring monsters to Earth in order for them to become buddies with humans. Through friendship and courage, they take on and fight challenges, known as Buddyfights, where people of all ages have friendly non-hurtful competitions. The main character, Gaou Mikado has just started Buddyfighting. As the story progresses, Buddyfights are seeming to become a little too real…

What I think: Well this is an anime based on a Collectible Carg Game. There are many other Animes in this Genre that are a lot more popular, mainly Yugioh. But what distinguishes this Anime from the bunch is its humour. This is what makes me watch this anime. The cardgame is also easy to understand, so you dont need to read the game rulebook or anything to understand whats happening in the story. A must watch for any card game fan.

Air Gear Review

air-gear-1Genres: Action, Comedy, Ecchi, Shounen, Sports
Plot Summary: Minami Itsuki never thought about seriously riding Air Treck motorized roller blades, until he got his butt handed to him by a street gang of Storm Riders. That day, he discovered in a locked up room, a pair of AT’s and a box of stickers belonging to the Sleeping Forest street gang. One thing leads to another, and Ikki dons the wheels and begins to ride. As his reputation builds in the AT street fighting/racing world, he begins to develop his own gang and participate in more fights, gaining more and more territory.
What I think: I actually never wanted to watch Air Gear. The poster (the one above) and the fact that its supposed to be a sports anime discouraged me. I was forced to watch the first episode because of a friend that was watching it. The next day a watched the remaining 24 episodes. It´s incredible how an anime about “skating” can be this addictive. I´m even thinking about watching it once more.
I always try to keep my reviews short, so you can find an anime you like, and go and watch it right away. So check out my older reviews, maybe you will find something you will enjoy.

GetBackers Review

01b

Genre: Action, Comedy, Drama, Mystery, Shounen, Super Power, Supernatural

Plot summary:
Mido Ban and Amano Ginji are known as the Get Backers, retrievers with a success rate of 100%. Whatever is lost or stolen, they can definitely get it back. Despite their powerful abilities and enthusiastic behavior, Ban and Ginji are terminally broke no matter what they do simply because few people would actually desire to hire them. As a result, the pair of them tend to do dangerous jobs, often leading to unwanted re-encounters with their old (and dangerous) friends.

What I think: It has been a long time since I watched this series (like 8 years) and it left such an impression that I still remember the whole story. The main characters have unique personalities and a secret background that is slowly revealed to us, showing us their personal growth and keeping us at the edge of the seat with suspense.

There are few Animes with the quality of story and art that this one has.

If you haven´t seen it yet, look it up and start right away, you will not be dissapointed. If you have seen it share your thoughts.

Element Hunters Review

327671dz

Genre: Science fiction, Adventure

Plot summary: In the year 2029, chemical elements such as oxygen, carbon, gold, molybdenum, and cobalt were continually disappearing from Earth. These disappearing elements ultimately disrupted the environment and led to the destruction of various homes, cities, and even entire countries. Researchers discovered that the vanishing elements drained into a planet called Nega Earth, located in another dimension. Element dematerialization was occurring rapidly; thus, to save Earth, three special pre-teens picked by the space colony government formed the Element Hunters. Their job was to transport themselves to Nega-Earth to battle monsters called Q-EXes and retrieve lost elements. However, out of their own concerns, Ren, Chiara, and Homi, a couple of average middle school students from Earth, banded together to also become Element Hunters. With the help of Professor Aimee Carr and Juno, they are able to help save their own planet.

 

What I think: You notice right away that the purpose of this Anime is to educate, as well as entertain. The writers did a good job creating an interesting story (for children) and I´m sure I wasn´t the only that learned a little something about elements. I think it´s a very good anime to watch in the company of your Kids or siblings, or alone if you are a kid, but if you´re a little older you will probably not enjoy watching it alone, since its pretty childish.
