Goblin Slayer: Does it live up to the hype?

The anime world has tons to offer when it comes to RPG/game inspired titles. From the pioneers like, Sword Art Online, down to the newcomers like Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody, they introduce new flavors to spice up the genre and keep us wanting for more.

I’ve read a few chapters of the Goblin Slayer manga and was a bit impressed by how they came up with something different. Most RPG-inspired anime shows focus on strong demon lords and huge black dragons as their main antagonists. Goblin Slayer as the name suggests only has goblins as the main enemy. If you have even a little bit of RPG experience then you’ll know that they are among the weakest creature.

But Goblin Slayer, the main protagonists’ real name, thinks of it differently. He believes that goblins are the ultimate enemies of men and should be eradicated on site. His obsession with killing goblins and only goblins turned him into their races’ worst nightmare.

Watch the Goblin Slayer Trailer: 

Visuals: 5/5

Goblin Slayer’s animation and overall visual vibe are outstanding. I was thinking of giving it 5 stars even just after watching its intro.

Colors are also vibrant which surprised me because I expected it to lean towards a darker tone after considering all the brutal scenes in its novel origin. The fluid fight scenes sealed the deal for me. Though short, they are exciting to watch and the character’s movements flow naturally. Topped with decent visual effects, the fight scenes in Goblin Slayer do not just live by the hype in terms of violence but also in entertainment value.

If only the Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody’s anime rendition was done the same, it would have been an instant hit.

Voice Acting: 4/5

The voices match the characters well. This is true for Goblin Slayer. Though I would love a deeper voice for him, it’s not to the point that I’ll complain about it. Other character’s voices also complement their corresponding personalities well.

Characters: 3/5

Goblin Slayer’s character is creative and new. However, the rest are not. They are the usual characters we see in RPG-inspired anime. It would help if they can provide even a brief background story for the supporting characters like what they’ve done for Goblin Slayer in the early episodes.

Plot progression (as of 3 episodes): 4/5

The story is a bit fast-paced which I like. I know some of you prefer things to be slower so more details can be introduced white giving us enough time to gain a better understanding of the fantasy world the characters are living but I find such kind of development a bit boring.

Don’t worry because Goblin Slayer’s pace isn’t too fast. There are slow and relaxed scenes here and there. The part where he shared a breakfast with his childhood friend and her father is a good example. It gave us a hint of Goblin Slayer’s simple life and slowed down the story before he jumped into another goblin-slaying quest.

So it is a Nay or Yay? Super Yay!

Goblin Slayer is not just a Yay but a Super Yay! I love it. All those who loved Sword Art Online and other RPG anime should give it a chance. Brutality is there so heads up if you can’t handle it. I’m against the idea of toning the violence down because it gave Goblin Slayer its unique identity. This anime is aimed at mature audiences who were once or are still playing Role-Playing games and want to be entertained by both worlds at the same time.

Is Fairy Tail a Good Anime to Watch?

Fairy tail is one of the popular anime series these days and its already in its 3rd Season. One thing for sure, an anime that got this far would certainly mean that it’s a good anime and is being watched by a lot of anime enthusiasts. Below, let’s get into more details why this anime is worth watching and if its the kind of anime you would be willing to spend your time.

 

Well Polished and Interesting Characters

 

One of the main reasons we continue watching an anime series after seeing a couple of episodes is the personality of the characters. Most of the time, we search for characters who are interesting and fun to watch which is the main reason why One Punch Man was a big hit.

 

 

In fairy tail, there is a fairly large number of characters closely similar to One Piece and Naruto. The main characters are the ones that stands out and have a good amount of screen time all throughout the series. Thus, you will not fall short of meeting interesting characters which will make you look forward to the next episodes.

 

One of the best things about fairy tail is that aside from highlighting the main characters, it also gives enough time for the story of side characters. With this, you will still even remember even those characters who are less important. This makes the anime series more interesting.

 

With this many interesting characters, you will certainly have a lot of favorite characters aside from the main protagonists.

 



 

Strong Female Anime Characters

 

 

Another thing that makes this anime worth watching is the number of strong female characters. I think a lot of anime lovers are used to seeing strong male characters that is why it becomes pretty cool and amazing to an extent when female characters are pretty strong. In fairy tail, among the strongest would be Erza, Mirajane, Juvia and Lucy.

 

Aside from being strong, they also have different type of skills and magic powers which is very awesome to watch.

 

Very Good Story Line

 

The writers of this anime series have been doing well when it comes to the storyline. I personally think that it keeps getting better every chapter. Thou, of course, there are times that a certain arc is less interesting, but overall I like how the whole story is evolving.

 

If you watch the first few episodes, you might think that the story is going nowhere. However, as you continue with following the next episodes, you will slowly understand the story and eventually appreciate where it is leading. I suggest you don’t judge the storyline just by watching a few episodes.

 

Many are saying that you have to wait until episodes 20-25 before you are going to appreciate the story which I somehow agree. Personally, I’m not that critical with the storyline. As long as the anime can keep me interested in watching the next episode, I will continue to watch it.

 

I could assure you that if you made it to episode 20+, it will be hard to stop watching this anime. It is just pretty much interesting and lots of likable characters.

 

Great Fight Scenes

 

Many would definitely agree that the fight scenes of fairy tail are one of its main selling points. If you are into action-adventure anime, this would certainly satisfy you. It’s beyond this world. Plus, these fight scenes are backed up with great background music which makes it even more fun to watch. When the sound changes and it becomes intense, expect an epic battle to unfold. Also, watch out for those excellent scenes where a fight is ended in a very clever way which is really cool.

 

 

You will definitely appreciate the action scenes of FT because of its quality animation. Many are saying that this anime is a ‘feel good’ anime which is the reason why animation matters. Good thing the people behind this anime was able to hit the mark on this.

 

Another thing about the action scenes is that you know that there is a possibility that some of the good guys would die. Though not that many since of course, it’s always the good guys who will win. But, it will still lead you at the edge of your seat where you feel the tension in every fight.

 

It is also good to note that important fight scenes, those we consider as epic fight scenes are not too dragged by back stories. Just when you think that there will be a lot of talk on part of the antagonist, the main character immediately charges and starts the fight. When its time to fight, the fighting is done without too much delay unlike other anime series where the backstory could last for one episode before the fight starts.

 

Though there are a lot of fight scenes, there are also times that characters get emotional which is a good point.

 

If you are among the million of DBZ fans, there is a big chance that you will also like Fairy Tail. It’s an anime that most likely you will remember because of the battle scenes.

 

Fun to Watch

 

In order for an anime series to last long, it must be fun to watch. FT never fall short of having comic scenes in all their episodes. It’s great since one of the reasons we watch anime is to have fun, relax and enjoy. I can say that in general, Fairy Tail is a fun anime.  It has a light story, fun characters, bright and colorful animation – all this makes you watch the anime with a smile.

 

 

Aside from being fun to watch, watching the anime would also give you a sense of hope and inspiration. Hope in the sense that whenever you are down and at your lowest, expect that someone will be there to pick you up like your friends or family. The idea is that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. It will inspire you to love, trust and be glad that you have your friends around. The anime has a very strong message about bonds and friendship.

 

Some Negative Points

 

Even though there are a lot of good things to say about this anime, there are still some things that could be improved. Many would agree that there are some events in the anime that are too predictable. They say that some ending part of every story or arc is cliche, this could be due to the different anime series that have already been released and finished prior to Fairy Tail. However, the writers could do better in lessening cliche.

 

Anime Rating:

8/10

 

 

So to the question ‘Is fairy tail a good anime to watch?’. The answer is a Big YES!

 

Aureole Omega: Overlord’s Seventh Pleiades

The third season of Overlord just ended so I know a lot of you are still in the denial stage.  Everyone who stay tuned from the first season wants more.  And it’s a fact that there are a lot of available materials left in the novel for them to use to come up with a 4th or even up to the 5th season.  Sadly, the anime studio behind it rarely extends their work beyond three seasons so it is still a tossup if Overlord’s anime adaptation will continue or not.   But don’t be sad.  Let’s just hope and pray that Overlord’s growing popularity continues enough for producers and other animation studios to make their move.

To at least help you deal with your separation anxiety, why not talk about Overlord characters that did not appear in its anime rendition?  There are a couple of them but the most significant I can think of is Aureole Omega, the leader of Nazarick’s Pleiades Battle Maids.  She is the last born which means the youngest.  It’s true that she has been mentioned only a few times in the novel but her personality and possible abilities awakened the interests of many.

 

 

What made Aureole Omega special?

Probably the biggest difference of Aureole compared to her sisters is that she’s level 100. This means she can stand toe-to-toe against Dimiurge, Albedo, Shalltear, and the rest of the Nazarick floor guardians if we only consider power levels.  By being strong, she qualified to be the protector of the staff of Ainz Ooal Gown whenever it is not by Ainz.  This is probably among the biggest responsibilities within the guild because the staff is considered their most precious possession.  The fact that Ainz is confident enough to leave it to Aureoles shows his level of confidence towards the maid’s battle abilities and loyalty.

 

 

Will she ever leave the Tomb of Nazarick?

The story is far from over because there are still a lot of questions left unanswered, places unexplored, and figures already mentioned in the previous chapters that are yet to be met by the main characters.  There is always a possibility for Aureole to leave Nazarick to either perform a secret mission or help Ainz achieve his goals.  The rest of her sisters already had their moments and only Aureole and Yuri Alpha are in line to have greater involvement in Ainz’s adventures.  It may be that the two of them along with Mare escort Ainz to the Elf Kingdom.  Intruders from the Black Scriptures may also try to infiltrate the Tomb of Nazarick to know more about Ainz and it will be Aureole’s turn to protect her territory.

 

 

Why is she considered one of Ainz’s trump cards?

Ainz’s major concern as he starts to explore the new world is the presence of players just like him.  His worries even grew as Shalltear, the strongest among the NPCs, was brainwashed.  Ainz still doesn’t know anything about the person or item that brainwashed Shalltear.  Can it be done multiple times?  What are the conditions for it to be used?  These questions remained unanswered which is why Ainz takes precautions every time he allows his subordinates to join him in his adventures or fulfill tasks outside the Tomb of Nazarick.   If a player does exist and he/she becomes a threat to their guild, then Ainz will be left with no option but to fight.  He needs as much firepower possible during this dire situation and Aureole Omega can be a great source because she can instantly turn the tides of the battle with her level and commanding skills.

 

 

What other abilities does she most likely have?

Aureole Omega can use Gate.  It is regarded as the most advanced teleportation skill.  With this in mind, it’s possible that she can use other skills that allow her to manipulate dimensions and time.  She wears a traditional kimono so she might also have samurai-like abilities.  All of her sisters wield weapons so she should have one as well and a short katana perfectly matches her outfit.  It was mentioned in the novel that she can boost her allies’ stats with a skill so it’s expected that she also has debuff skills in her arsenal.  It will be easy to build an impregnable wall to protect the Tomb of Nazarick with her in the center of the formation along with the rest of her sisters.

 

 

Can Aureole Omega defeat a player on her own?

With her level, Aureole can buy some time before falling against a player.  NPCs have limited skills and items so they really don’t stand a chance against players unless they have a great class advantage.  Moreover, Aureole’s confirmed skills are only for supporting and organizing allies so she may have limited abilities that can be handy in a one-on-one setting.   But as long as she can stand her ground for a couple of minutes, she’s good enough to face a player.  Ainz can simply revive her and use all the intel he can get from Aureole’s encounter against the player so he can devise a plan to assure victory.

 

Aureole Omega Fan Arts:

 

Now that you know more about Aureole Omega, be sure to read share this article with your friends who are also fans of Overlord just like us.  They may not have read the Overlord novel and completely miss out this interesting character.  If you have other interesting facts about Aureole Omega be sure to share them in the comments section below.   Thank you for reading and don’t forget to LIKE and SHARE THE ANIME LOVE MINA!

Bell Cranel – Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?

Bell Cranel is the main character in the anime series. He is an adventurer who wanted to get stronger in order to serve his Goddess Hestia to the fullest and to catch up to the one who inspires him. He was given the title Little Rookie mainly. This is because he is just a starter. However, amidst being a rookie he was already found with great potentials and has got some commendable achievements.

 

Appearance

A younger teenager with white hair and very expressive eyes. I could say that he is cute since I lot of female characters seems him that way and most of them become attracted to him at first meeting. Even though his life is at risk during adventures in the tower, he prefers light weight armors. He wears a high boots, black pants and black long sleeves aside from his armor. He also has a small sword which is a gift from his Goddess.

Personality

Bell is your typical shy type teenage boy. He gets shy when there are other people especially girls who want to be close to him. His main concern is helping his Goddess to the best of his abilities, protecting her and bringing the best for their familia. He has a deep concern for people who is very special to him.
The only problem with his personality is his trusting nature. He is easy on trust even to complete strangers. I think he just wants to show other people that they can be who they are in front of him and that he is willing to accept them as who they are. But, this character often leads to dire situations for him.
He has the tendency to help others regardless of the situation and even though it could mean the end of his life. He doesn’t care as long as he commits to what he believes is right.

 

Abilities

 

Fighting Skills

He has excellent fighting skills. And his light armor makes him more agile when it comes to battle. He could easily dodge and attack when needed.
Bell is fast so he could easily get to a certain spot or area where he has a big advantage to strike the enemy.

 

Liaris Freese

This is the skill that makes him grow really fast. That is why he is able to reach a high level in a faster rate than the usual adventurers. As long as his feelings are strong towards something like his desire to protect his Goddess, this ability will last.

 

Luck

I think this is the handiest skill for a person like Bell. He easily gets into a dire situation; however he doesn’t run out of luck due to this skill. As Hestia mentioned, it is like he has a divine protection. This could also explain why they get a lot of drops when he clears dungeons.

 

Argonaut

This skill is used to strengthen his attacks. This is very useful for situations where there are very strong enemy and he has to rely on an attack that could defeat the enemy in one strike. Bell is able to use this skill more efficiently as he continues to experiment on it and use it in battle.

 

Equipment

 

Hestia Knife

This knife was crafted Hephaestus who is a Goddess. It was due to a request from Hestia who is the Goddess of Bell. She wants to give bell this gift for him to become stronger and have a better chance of surviving in the dungeon.

 

The best thing about this weapon is it’s alive and becomes stronger as the wilder continues to grow. This could mean that the possibilities for this knife are limitless as long as Bell continue to level up.
There is nothing much special in the knife when you look at it physically aside from the hieroglyphics embedded in it. Additionally, the knife only works in the hands of Bell. If others use it, it will just be a dull and useless knife.

 

Dagger

Prior to having Hestia Knife, the first weapon of bell is a dagger.

 

Salamander Wool

It’s a red clock that serves as a protection against fire attacks.

 

Green Supporter

This equipment is a gift from Eina – a close friend of Bell. It serves as a protection and is lightweight which Bell prefers a lot.

 

Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Review

Though there are really a lot of girl characters in this anime that somehow got attached to the Bell who is the main characters, there is a lot more to this anime. It’s not all fanservice.
The whole story of this anime revolves about the main character Bell and her Goddess Hestia. Bell is a rookie adventurer who suddenly became famous due to his accomplishments. The main character easily attracts gilrs not only because of his charm, but also because of his personality. He looks so innocent.

 

 

Fight Scenes

If you are after action and fight scenes, then this anime will surely satisfy you. When there are dungeons, there are definitely monsters and adventures and this makes the anime action packed. Aside from sword skills, adventurers can also use magic making things a lot more fun and really interesting to watch.

 

The anime focuses on how the main character gets stronger as the day goes by and as he slowly climb up the dungeon and meeting stronger enemies/creatures.

 

Characters

There are also a lot of interesting characters in this anime series like Aiz Wallenstein. She is the girl whom Bell idolizes so much because of her swordsmanship. She is one of the strongest characters in this anime series.

 

The different Goddess in the anime are also very interesting. Though they did not get as much screen time on this series yet, surely for the future seasons, some of them will be highlighted and will make things pretty much interesting. Some of these Goddesses are Hephaestus, Hermes and Freya who seems to be one of the antagonists.
Other characters to watch out would be Mikoto, Asfi, Riveria and Welf.

 

MMORPG Feel

It is best to mention that the setting of the anime is that of a MMORPG where adventurers level up and gain new skills and abilities. The only difference is that there is no re-spawn, when you are killed in the dungeon, you die. Adventurers grow as they continue to kill monsters as part of clearing parts of the dungeon.
The same as in an RPG game, then a monster is killed, it explodes and leaves gold, gems or items. So if you are a gamer, you would certainly appreciate this anime and would be very much interested to watch it.
This is also the main reason why when I watched this anime, it only took me 3 days to finish the whole season 1.

 

How about Fanservice?

I am personally not a fan of fanservice, for a find it uncomfortable to watch. However, I think it has become a part of most anime series. For Is It Wrong To Try To Pick Up Girls In A Dungeon, it was just right. It was not horrible for me. The only character with most fanservice is Hestia with her really large boobs, but aside from that, everything is cool.

 

The title might make you think that there will be lots of panty shots in this anime, but great to know that there is nothing like this in the anime. But still, you will see the face of the main character in the boobs of girl characters, not that often though.

 

Design and Animation

For me, everything in the design an animation was crafted well. I could give it a 9/10. The first thing you’ll notice when it comes to the character designs is how they were able to make them different. Every main character looks different. You can confirm for yourself by going to this link: Character Design.

 

So, Is it Recommended?

I would say YES. If given a rating, it would be 7/10. This is no good for those who are looking for lots of fanservice – it’s great to let this know upfront. However, when it comes to story, action, drama and characters, it is something that you would certainly enjoy watching.
Also a heads-up for those who are easily irritated with dumb main characters, I think most of the time, Bell is just so dumb failing to see through things.

The Best Anime in Hulu We Should be Watching Now!

We enjoy anime shows in different ways.  The majority choose to watch via free websites and the reason why is very obvious.  Why pay for something you can have for free?  But we can all agree that doing so will not help the anime industry other than spreading its popularity.  I too am guilty of this selfish act.  I really can’t spare a few dollars to pay a monthly subscription to watch anime on premium video-hosting websites like Hulu knowing that there are other important bills I need to settle.  Talk about the dark side of being an adult.  I really envy teens living in first world countries who can buy whatever they want and enjoy other privileges that money brings.  But that’s another story.  Going back to the main topic, paying to watch anime shows is a legit way to give back to their producers and writers.  It’s a way to help them earn and encourages them to do more.  So if you belong to the lucky group of people who can buy the latest iPhone model without even looking at its price tag, then you should not hesitate to subscribe and watch the best anime in Hulu.

There are hundreds of anime titles in Hulu so finding one that perfectly suits your taste might be a bit daunting.  But worry not my rich otaku friend because I created this list of the best anime shows on Hulu especially for you.  Enjoy and I hope you find one that will either rekindle your love for anime or deepen it to the point that you’ll read my other articles and support fellow Otakus!

 

 

Hunter X Hunter

 

This anime show tackles the beauty of friendship and freedom.  It follows the story of Gon Freecss, the son of Gin Freecss, one of the most influential Hunters in his era.  A Hunter is an individual who possesses unique skills which he uses to explore new boundaries in his chosen path.  He can be at the frontier of creating new food recipes or be the deadliest assassin there is.  Gin is an explorer so he left Gon as a child and went on to new adventures as a Hunter. When Gon was old enough, he set off from his home island to be a Hunter and know what makes it worth leaving your only child for.

 

 

Attack on Titan

 

An apocalyptic theme is common in anime.  Even so, almost all the anime shows that chose to follow this common path succeeded in getting enough fan-base to go on for a couple of seasons.  A good example is Attack on Titan.  It was a very popular manga series and its anime adaptation gave way for its fans to even grow by the millions worldwide.  So is it worth the hype?  To be honest, I’m not really a huge fan of Attack on Titan but I watched several episodes with a friend who enjoys it so much.  And I can say that it’s brutal and action-packed.  If you’re into gore, tragic deaths, and unpredictable series of events then this anime show is the right one for you.

 

 

Cowboy Bebop

 

Let’s forget about recent anime shows for now and focus more on their great-grandparents.  Anime shows like Trigun, Voltes V, and Yu Yu Hakusho started it all. But the anime genre was very limited back then.  Most of the anime shows lean toward fantasy were the main protagonists have special powers and need to embark on a dangerous adventure to either save his love interest or free his kingdom from a demon king.  Cowboy Bebop chose to avoid this cliché and told the story of a bounty hunter.  He doesn’t have special powers but his gunslinging skills and laidback attitude easily captured the hearts of anime fans.  If you’re looking for a retro anime that perfectly combined humor and action, be sure to put Cowboy Bebop at the top of your list!

 

 

One Punch Man

 

How powerful do you need to be to finish off every enemy with just one punch?  I don’t really have the answer to this question but you can ask Saitama, the main protagonist of the hit anime how entitled One Punch Man.  So what is One Punch Man all about?  The title says it all.   It showcases the life of a hero who can basically finish his job with just one punch.  He claims that he gained his insurmountable strength by simply doing basic physical training every day.  Like everyone who he shared his story with, I don’t believe it’s all that simple.  It’s more likely that he is not human and carries the blood of an alien race which can be compared to gods.  Watch One Punch Man in Hulu if you want to know more about Saitama and who knows you might think of a better guess than mine about the origin of his power.

 

 

Haikyuu!!

 

Volleyball is a famous sport so I started to wonder several years ago why an anime show based on it was still nowhere to be found.  Is volleyball not good enough?  Well, Haikyuu!! answered all my questions.   It’s an exciting anime about high school volleyball.  It’s realistic unlike other sports anime shows that exaggerate in-game strategies and techniques. You’ll not only enjoy heart-pumping volleyball action but learn interesting ideas on how to play better which you can apply to your next game.   It’s also a perfect anime show to binge on since it already has three seasons and the 4th one has been given a green light.  Every volleyball fan should watch Haikyuu!! and experience their favorite sport in a way only anime can deliver!

 

 

Naruto Shippuden

 

You can’t be called an anime fan without watching at least a single episode of Naruto.  I know the original series already ended and now they came up with a new one that features Naruto’s son but we should never forget that it was one among the few anime shows that started the craze.  I can still remember my friend recommending it to me when I was just in college like it was yesterday but it has been more than a decade now and Naruto has come a long way and managed to influence millions of anime fans across the globe.   If you are among the few who skipped Naruto, particularly Naruto Shippuden for any reason valid or not, now is the time to redeem yourself. Watch it and just thank me later.  It’s one of the best anime in Hulu for a reason.

 

 

Fairy Tail

 

Have you ever wondered how our world would look like if magic exist?  Don’t worry if you lack imagination to picture it all out since that’s why anime shows are for.  One good choice for this purpose is Fairy Tail.  This anime show features the struggles and triumphs of a renowned Magic Guild known as Fairy Tail.  They are often called to do dangerous missions and they never fail to deliver positive results.  This shows how powerful the Fairy Tail members are but what others often fail to realize is that this guild is not just a simple gathering of strong magicians. They are effective not just because of individual strength but mainly due to their teamwork.  Every Fairy Tail member treats their companion as family that is why they never leave anyone behind and would gladly face danger and defy their limits if it would mean saving a comrade and accomplishing the task at hand.  If you’re a fan of anime shows that center on friendship and other good values while offering intense magic battles here and there, Fairy Tail is perfect for you!

 

 

My Hero Academia

 

They say heroes are made, not born.  This famous quote is probably one of the inspirations behind My Hero Academia.  This increasingly popular anime shows follows the journey of Izuku Midoriya.  He is a normal child who like everyone else aspires to be as great as the hero they idolize.  Nevertheless, there is one huge obstacle in front of him in realizing this dream.  He is not talented nor does he have the strong and resilient body heroes normally have.  Any of us would naturally give up in this situation but Midoriya is different.  He has what it takes to be a hero in his own right because of his passion.  He does not take no for an answer and would do anything just to defy everyone’s expectations.  I know you’re rooting for him to be one of the greatest heroes someday and he probably will.  Why not watch his growth from the start?  Watch My Hero Academia now and get on board the hype train along with millions of anime fans across the globe!

 

 

Tokyo Ghoul

 

Can a monster be lovable?  I know it sounds impossible but it is the case with Kaneki, the main protagonist in the hit anime series Tokyo Ghoul.  How did he become a monster?  Is it something activated from anger like other typical anime characters with split personality?  Don’t continue reading if you don’t want to be spoiled.  Kaneki started out as a normal human being.  Ghouls exist in his world and humans are wary of them but Kaneki was living a normal life thinking that being attacked by Ghouls is the least of his problem.  But after several events, Kaneki found himself being attacked and almost eaten by a female Ghoul. He was saved by an unknown person but the cost was severe.  He ended up with Ghoul body parts inside him so he is now half-human half-ghoul.    Can he still live normally despite his unique condition?  Which side should he choose in the battle between humans and ghouls?  There’s no better way to answer these questions than by watching Tokyo Ghoul!  I highly recommended it especially for those who love protagonists who are both compassionate and brutal.

 

 

The Devil is a Part-timer!

 

If you’ve been reading by recent articles, you can attest that I’m an Overlord fan. But before Overlord, my favorite anime series is The Devil is a Part-timer.  For me, it is better even compared to mainstream anime shows like Naruto, Bleach, and One Piece.  And like everybody else, I’m still waiting for The Devil is a Part-timer to be continued.  There are just too many questions left unanswered and interesting plot twists that it has to offer.  So why do I love it so much?  The Devil is a Part-timer! offers a complete viewing experience.  It has action, drama, humor, and even romance.  What else would you ask for from a show to be entertained?  I have yet to find an anime series that entertained me as much as the Devil is a Part-timer did.  Well if you have recommendations please do share them in the comments section below.  Who knows you might have encountered a rare gem that I skipped for some reason.  And I’ll be sure to thank you in my next post.

 

To some, watching anime is a complete waste of time.  I advise those who think this way to ease up on the criticism and don’t judge the hobby without even trying it.  No matter what you guys say, watching anime is fun for me and my fellow Otakus.  And what else do we seek in this world other than happiness?  We have different ways to have fun and it just happens that watching anime is what gives us joy and excitement amidst this chaotic and often depressing world.  To all my Otaku friends out there, don’t let others stop you from doing what you love.  As long as you do it in moderation, you’re completely fine.  Remember that anything, how beautiful it might be, if done in exaggeration can lead to negative consequences.  As always, don’t forget to give this article a LIKE and continue to SHARE THE ANIME LOVE MINA!

The 7 Deadly Sins Anime: Read Before you Watch

I have watched the 2 Seasons of The 7 Deadly Sins and here is my review. In general, I would give it an 8/10.  If you are one of the anime fans who love to watch fight scenes and overpowered main characters, then this would satisfy you.

 

Characters

 

The characters of the anime represent the 7 deadly sins namely, Envy, Gluttony, Lust, Sloth, Greed, Pride and Wrath. This itself makes the characters really interesting since you will be watching out how these would be seen in their character and traits.
Since they are the main characters, they are incredibly strong and with this number of characters, expect the anime series from Season 1 to Season 2 to be action-packed. However, in my personal view, there were more action scenes in the Season 1. The writers and those who created the anime made sure that your thirst for anime fights is satisfied. This only means that it did not focus much on the story and character development.
You will know more about the characters with their backstory in Season 2. Most of the characters have their own sense of humor which is one of the things I liked in this anime.
In most of the Episodes, you will be able to see how silly Ban is and how naughty Meliodas is who is the leader of the group.
Aside from the main characters, there are also other secondary characters who add more fun and enjoyment in the series. I would not mention who they are. Its for you to find out. They will surely have their own unique character and powers at the same time.

 

Top-Notched Action Anime

 

I would say that the fights scenes are great. Well created and will definitely get you at the edge of your seat. You will be wanting for more after watching the fights since Episode 1. You will surely be more interested to know how strong the main characters are and to what extent could their power reach. The good thing about the fights is that the main characters have their own unique power and abilities which makes them more interesting and fun to watch.
When you search on Youtube, you will surely see a lot of good battles from this anime which only means that it will not fall short of action scenes.

 

Story

 

For me, the main story here is the adventure of Elizabeth whose main goal is to gather the 7 deadly sins to save their kingdom. So as the episode progress, you will meet new members of the group. This anime has a good balance of action, humor and drama as well.
Its one of those anime with a simple story but still entertaining.
I guess many would agree with me that The 7 Deadly Sins both Season 1 and 2 don’t have the best ending but I think its good enough which also leaves a hint that there will be a new season we could watch out for.

 

Art

 

The art of this anime is well made. You will definitely appreciate the details in the character designs and also how they are able to keep the same great details during actions scenes. This good quality of animation and drawing was well maintained in the entire series.
Aside from the great art, adding to the beauty is the soundtrack which is composed of the very popular Sawano. So expect that even if you have not heard the soundtrack yet, it will surely become one of your favorites.

 

Overall

 

Since its a wonderful action anime for me, I would give The 7 Deadly Sins a 8/10 rating. And will recommend it to anyone who wants to watch an action-packed anime series with a good taste for adventure.

Best Horror Anime Movies to Watch this Coming Halloween

Halloween is fast approaching my Otaku friends.  Have you thought of amazing plans on how to celebrate with family and friends?  Are you going on a trip?  Or do you prefer relaxing at home and giving out candies to horrifyingly cute trick-or-treaters?  If you ask me, I rather stay at home than be exposed to all the stresses that come with traveling.  Don’t get me wrong, I love exploring new places and meeting new friends but Halloween for me is not just a holiday but a chance to relax and step outside all the everyday life hustle and bustles.  And what better way to spend the Halloween night than watching horror movies, right?  For Otakus like us, it’s ten times better if they are horror anime movies.

There are hundreds of titles to choose from ranging from old school anime horror to new ones complete with 3D effects and new art styles which greatly improves the viewing experience.  I know it’s hard to decide with all these options so I’ll save you time by creating this list.  All of the anime movies mentioned below are worth your time.  It all comes down to personal preference and your level of tolerance when it comes to gore and scare.  Go on, read through the list and I’m pretty sure you’ll find one or two that would peek your interest.

 


Blood: The Last Vampire

Release Date: 2000

My Personal Rating: 5/5

Gore and Scare Level: 5/5

Blood: The Last Vampire is a must-watch not just this coming Halloween but any time you want to experience anime artistry in its full potential.   I consider it one of my favorite anime movies.  Although it has a dark setting, the story is basically all about hope. As it follows the life of the last remaining original vampire who slays her evil brethren, we can slowly realize that she is mankind’s only hope to fend off evil.  She easily eliminates even the most powerful vampires with her katana.  Being outnumbered is also not a problem as she overcomes every challenge not just by physical prowess but through her unrivaled skills and wit.  But why is an original vampire doing so much for mankind who obviously hates her kind?  What sacrifices is she willing to give just to accomplish her mission?  There’s no other way to answer these questions than to watch this epic movie! I suggest inviting your friends to come over for this one because it guarantees a fun and exciting time.

Kakurenbo

Release Date: 2004

My Personal Rating: 4/5

Gore and Scare Level: 3/5

Probably the only bad thing about Kakurenbo is its length.  Come on, 25 minutes is too short for such a wonderful anime movie.  I was excited the moment I got a copy because the title really doesn’t tell you much.  The art style also surprised me as it is very refreshing in contrast to other anime movies made way back in 2004.  But what really influenced me to give it a very high rating, one short of perfect, is its story.  You might have several guesses as to how everything will turn out but you’ll be wrong in the end.  It’s a horror movie that is fun to watch especially if you are with scaredy-cats!

I know you want a copy so grab it here now!

Seoul Station

Release Date: 2016

My Personal Rating: 4/5

Gore and Scare Level: 4/5

Have you watched the hit movie Train to Busan?  Seoul Station follows the same circumstance but this time the Seoul Station is the one plagued by a horde of zombies.  These scary creatures are the last thing you want as pursuers.  They never tire and their hunger for flesh is almost like insatiable.   Would you run and seek help or fight?  Zombies are easy to kill if you encounter them one at a time.  Almost everyone today is aware that the only way to kill a zombie is to crush its brain thanks to the help of zombie-inspired Hollywood movies and television series.  But the story is different if they come in groups.  Against a hoard of zombies, you’ll easily be trapped in a corner or bitten in your arm or feet without knowing it.

Relive your love/ hate relationship with zombies and grab a copy of Seoul Station now!

Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust

Release Date: 2000

My Personal Rating: 5/5

Gore and Scare Level: 5/5

The best thing about this movie is that it is not only purely horror, it also have a mixture of science fiction and samurai culture. You will definitely not fall short of great action scenes which are very much thrilling – there are many of these in the movie.
It has a good pacing which is great especially for those who wanted to know more about the characters and the overall story of the movie.
Make sure that you finish watching the movie since many would agree that it has a great finale. It will be something that you will remember for a long time.


Perfect Blue

Release Date: 1997

My Personal Rating: 4/5

Gore and Scare Level: 5/5

The animation of this movie is not very flashy but it is still very good. The story is great which makes viewers hold on to it from the start till the end. Overall, it has a very creepy feel which makes it one of the best. The camera angles were planned well which makes the scenes mysterious and dreamy.


Dante’s Inferno: An Animated Epic

Release Date: 2010

My Personal Rating: 4/5

Gore and Scare Level: 5/5

How far would you go for the woman you love?  I know you’ll give me crazy answers but I’m certain none is as daring as Dante’s.  He ventured to hell just to save her woman’s spirit.  She is destined to be in heaven yet a powerful demon grasped her by the throat and captured her in front of Dante.  Our hero was left helpless at that time but he eventually found enough courage within him to knock on death’s door and rescue the love of his life.  This anime movie will take you to a horrific yet entertaining adventure.  Dante needs to survive several representations of hell along with their unique challenges in order to succeed.  Is the power brought upon by his love enough to make this happen?  Or will he yield against the powerful demon and be left trapped in hell?

Watch it this coming Halloween especially if you played the game as it can be a fun and nostalgic experience.


Berserk: The Golden Age Arc III

Release Date: 2013

My Personal Rating: 3/5

Gore and Scare Level: 4/5

The Berserk anime show is known for its brutally entertaining fight scenes and interesting characters with unique personalities.  The Berserk: The Golden Age Arc III takes the franchise to a whole new level.  The animation is crispier and the story has never been as exhilarating.  But it’s really not a horror anime movie so why is it included in this list?  It’s simple, the entertainment value and level of excitement this anime movie offers can rival the most terrifying anime movies out there.    You’ll easily be at the edge of your seat as Guts avoid enemy attacks by a hairline as Griffith comes up with a plan to turn the tides of the battle a split second before it can be ruled late.

So don’t think twice and grab a copy of Berserk: The Golden Age Arc III and enjoy your upcoming Halloween movie marathon with anime-loving friends!


The Empire of Corpses

Release Date: 2015

My Personal Rating: 3/5

Gore and Scare Level: 3/5

Frankenstein is the famous scientist of European horror folklore who is responsible for reanimating the monster.   He was killed right after accomplishing his lifetime goal and the monster terrorized the living afterward.  The story has been told a couple of times so a different twist won’t be bad right?  This is probably the reasoning behind The Empire of Corpses.  This anime movie took the vital elements of Frankenstein’s story and transformed it into a new masterpiece with the help of anime’s magic and ingenious storytelling.   The art style of The Empire of Corpses is really good so I suggest it to every anime fan who appreciates visual beauty.

Watch the Frankenstein anime version now and find out if it gives justice to the original!


The Garden of Sinners

Release Date: 2013

My Personal Rating: 3/5

Gore and Scare Level: 4/5

Can’t get enough of Fate/stay night?  Then why not learn more about its history and other relevant things regarding its universe by watching The Garden of Sinners.  This series is a collection of anime movies that showcases various serious topics like incest, suicide, rape, patricide, and murder.  So be reminded not to allow your kids to watch along with you.  Even though it’s not for the whole family, The Garden of Sinners surely deserves a spot in your upcoming Halloween movie marathon.  It gives a type of entertainment that only a few can appreciate making it a rare catch.  This is not just enjoyable for Fate/Stay Night fans but everyone who wants a good time and be immersed into a strange yet distinctive movie experience.

Don’t settle with the usual horror movie.  Grab a copy of The Garden of Sinners and let’s enjoy its perfect mix of suspense and action!


 

GYO: Tokyo Fish Attack

Release Date: 2012

My Personal Rating: 5/5

Gore and Scare Level: 4/5

A lot of monsters were born as pop culture flourished for years.  They came in all sorts of sizes from small goblins to gigantic treants.  But it’s the first time I’ve heard or read about fish monsters that fly and eat humans living in a city.  This is how unique GYO: Tokyo Fish Attack is.  At first, it may sound funny but a few minutes of watching the show is enough for you to be convinced that it’s worth your time.  The entertainment value is almost equivalent to watching famous horror movies like Dracula and Van Hellsing for the first time.  You’ll never know what will happen and how the protagonist can survive since the monsters they are up against are new to us.

Get to know more about these fish monsters that defy logic.


Detective Conan: The Darkest Nightmare

Release Date: 2016

My Personal Rating: 4/5

Gore and Scare Level: 2/5

Detective Conan has been around for quite some time.  The story started when the promising detective Shinichi Kudo was transformed into a young boy after being caught by a dangerous crime syndicate.  This movie takes the Detective Conan franchise towards a mind-boggling and thrilling turn.  This time around, Conan will stumble upon clues pointing to the syndicate that caused his condition.  The clue is not a page of a notebook or a recording but a woman who infiltrated the NPA Security Bureau Office with a goal to get the list of undercover agents in the Black organization.  Can Conan and his friends stop the Black organization’s plans before the agents are put into grave danger?  Will Conan be able to find a permanent cure to his condition?

This movie is not that scary nor does it have a lot of gore but it’s a show for the whole family.  The upcoming Halloween Party Night with your kids will surely be more enjoyable with the help of Detective Conan: The Darkest Nightmare!

 


Corpse Party: Tortured Souls

Release Date: 2013

My Personal Rating: 3/5

Gore and Scare Level: 5/5

Japanese horror movies are often weird but they never fail to give us a good scare.  This goes true with their animated versions.  The Corpse Party: Torture Souls has a unique plot.  It’s all about friends who did a ritual for good luck but ended up trapped in a haunted building.  They later on realize that there is more to their situation than they’ve imagined.  Can they get out of this predicament alive?   Will help arrive in time?  How can they solve the mystery behind the haunted building while being chased by dangerous spiritual entities?

Ryuk Costume from Death Note

Recommended for: Men or women who are a bit tall and won’t mind having a lot of makeup or paint applied to their face

Props you need: An apple, a death note replica

Ryuk is the death god partner of Yagami Light, the main antagonist in the anime series Death Note.  He dropped a Death Note in the real world out of boredom and that’s how he crossed path with Light.  Ryuk is known for his slender body and scary face.  He likes to tempt Light in making rushed decisions especially if it’ a matter of who lives or not.  Cosplaying Ryuk if done right can easily make you the star of any Halloween party especially if most of the partygoers have at least a little anime background.  And it’s not that hard to pull off a Ryuk Cosplay.  It’s all about having the body that matches his.  The makeup can be done by simply copying his noticeable facial features in the anime while his clothes can be bought online or you can make with some pieces of black cloth and black dyed feathers for the shoulder design.

Orochimaru Costume from Naruto Series

Recommended for: Naruto fans, snake lovers, people who are thin and has pale skin

Props you need: huge viper replica

I’ve seen a lot of villains after years of watching anime shows but none really scared me like Orochimaru.  His overall appearance is something you only see in nightmares.  Paired with his disturbing abilities and pet snakes, he is surely one of the most intimidating antagonists in the anime world.  He is the perfect cosplay subject for Halloween particularly for those who really want to scare their friends and younger siblings.  For me, he is the male version of Sadako.  Sadly, achieving his look can be a bit tricky.  First, you need to be thin and pale to make it happen.  Second, you need to wear his costume which is something you can only get online or made by a skillful dressmaker.  Lastly, you need a couple of snake dolls to complete the look.  The cute ones are not good.  You need the dolls to be as realistic as possible so anyone would instantly recognize you as Orochimaru.

Orochimaru is once a member of the Akatsuki so this Akatsuki cloak could take your Orochimaru cosplay to the next level!

Ainz Ooal Gown Costume from Overlord

Recommended for: Overlord fans, skeleton lovers

Props you need: Staff of Ainz Ooal Gown replica

If you have read a few articles I’ve posted here, you can easily tell that I’m a huge fan of Overlord.  I never fail to mention it every time I come up with a list and I can’t help it since it’s a really good novel/.manga/ anime show so please bear with me.  Ainz Ooal Gown is a unique lich not just because he is way more powerful than the others but because he is originally a real human player.  He was transported to a world similar to the game Ygdarasil after its servers were terminated.

Ainz is your best choice this coming Halloween if you want to gather attention since Overlord is one of the most famous anime shows today.  There are a lot of Ainz Ooal Gown cosplay Halloween costumes sold in online anime shops today so you don’t have to worry about what to wear to achieve his look.  His infamous staff might be harder to get but you can either make it on your own or visit a crafts shop to seek help from experts who can assemble a replica for you.

Ai Enma Costume from Hell Girl

Recommended for: little Asian girls with black hair, petite women

Props you need: straw voodoo doll

Many find Japanese girls wearing their school uniforms cute and lovable.  But this perception can instantly turn upside down if the same girls are the stars of a horror movie.  There is something eerie about having almond-shaped eyes, long black hair, and a really pale skin color that made Japanese girls very scary.  You can portray as a ghost Japanese girl but you can up it a notch by becoming Ai Enma.  She is the main protagonist in the anime series Hell Girl.  This anime touch will not only make your look scarier with the added voodoo doll but can also open opportunities to meet fellow anime fans and enjoy the Halloween party even more.

This Ai Enma Anime Halloween Costume is a must-grab!

Jigoku Shoujo Sailor Dress Hell Girl

Koro-sensei Costume from Assassination Classroom

Recommended for: Assassination Classroom fans, those who won’t mind wearing a huge headwear, teachers by profession

Props you need: graduation cap

Teaching is not just a profession; it’s a passion and a life-long commitment.  This is why I really admire people who devoted themselves to teaching not because they were left with nowhere to go or pressured by family and friends to do so but because it’s what they really dreamed of since childhood.  If you’re a teacher and is confused about what to wear this coming Halloween, then consider Koro-sensei.  He shares the same passion as you in spite of being a villain.  He is both cute and scary.  You need to wear a huge headgear to complete his look which can be a bit exhausting but it’s totally worth it especially if the event is a school Halloween party and all of your students will be coming.  They’ll surely be surprised!

This Koro-Sensei Cosplay costume is the only one you’ll need!

Assassination Classroom Korosensei Cosplay

Shishio Makoto Costume from Samurai X

Recommended for: Samurai X fans, those who love Japanese Samurai culture

Props you need: Katana replica

I’ve grown up watching Samurai inspired anime shows but none can match the excitement and drama that Samurai X offers on the table.  Despite its old animation techniques, it’s equally enjoyable and mesmerizing as compared to anime shows that are recently made using 3D animation and new rendering techniques. In fact, I prefer how anime is done the old way.  Though the effects are not flashy, you can clearly see the effort invested in making every frame of the animation.   Shishio Makoto is the main antagonists in Samurai X.  His duel with Kenshin Himura is regarded by anime as one of the best sword fights in anime history.  Showing up as him this coming Halloween will surely surprise your friends.  He is quite popular not only among avid anime fans so you’ll surely gather a lot of reactions.  And the best part of all is that his look is not hard to achieve.  You just need a few bandages since his body is all burnt in the anime and a traditional Samurai Kimono.

Don’t settle with an incomplete Shishio Makoto look.  Add this samurai training sword in your arsenal!

Jellal Fernandes Costume from Fairy Tail

Recommended for: Fairy Tail fans, young boys

Props you need: purple hair wig

Halloween is that one special day of the year where people dress up to be scary.  Many would wear Halloween costumes of famous monsters like Dracula and the Big Foot. But why would go with the flow if you have the freedom to be different?  A Jellal Fernandes cosplay is a good option for those who have the same outlook in life as me.  Don’t get me wrong, he is also a villain but not the scary type.  He has a charismatic aura and often wears a pretty robe which makes him look dignified and proud.  As long as you have the body type that matches Jellal, cosplaying him is a great way to make this coming Halloween a more memorable one.

Looking for a legit Jellal Fernandes Cosplay Costume?  This one will end your search.

Alphonse Elric Costume from Full Metal Alchemist Series

Recommended for: Full Metal Alchemist fans, those who don’t mind wearing a bulky costume

Props you need: None

Want to win the prize in having the best Halloween costume?  If your aim is this big then think about cosplaying Alphonse Elric.  He is one of the main protagonists in the anime show Full Metal Alchemist.  He is basically a tin man and has been in this form after a failed alchemy.  Achieving his look is very challenging because you need to wear full body armor.  Its design is not that complicated but doing it on your own will surely require a lot of time and effort so I suggest you buy the entire costume or hire someone who is more knowledgeable and experienced in creating cosplay costumes to get the job done.

If you are full metal alchemist fan, this cosplay costume would definitely fit your taste.

Himiko Toga Costume from Boku no Hero Academia

Recommended for: Boku no Hero Academia fans, young playful girls

Props you need: a small knife replica

Himiko is a psycho.  That’s how simple it is yet she has an unexplainable charm which makes her very lovable even though she is on the side of evil.  You have two options if you want to cosplay Himiko.  First is her plain school girl look.  This is easier since all you need to do is wear a plain Japanese schoolgirl uniform and a wig which matcher her hairstyle and hair color.  The second one is her villain look which is a bit more complicated.  I see her as the little girl Bane, from the Batman franchise, since they wear similar masks.  You also need to copy the gas canisters found on both sides of her head.  It won’t be easy but once done, you’ll surely be one of the scariest and at the same time lovable attendee in your upcoming Halloween party.

This Himiko Toga wig is the best one available online so grab it now while supplies last!

Titan Costume from Attack on Titan

Recommended for: Those who want it big, people who are confident with their body

Props you need: None

Titans are the main antagonists in the anime series Attack on Titan.  They are giants who look like people deformed body parts.  Aside from looking scary, they are perfect to portray for your upcoming Halloween Costume Party because doing so is both easy and inexpensive. All you need is body paint and a bit of creativity.  Just watch an episode of Attack on Titan where the Titans attack and pause on a moment when a Titan’s full body is exposed.  Copy the pattern on their body as much as possible using the paint and you’re good to go!  Wearing a wig is also a good idea so you can match Eren’s hair in his Titan form.

This Titan mask will surely make your life easier. All you need to work on with paint now is your body.

Rei Miyamoto Costume from High School of the Dead

Recommended for:  Women who don’t mind showing a bit of skin

Props you need:  Rifle replica, Blonde long hair wig, blood prosthetic (optional)

The creation of High School of the Dead Season 2 is probably one of the most famous petitions in the anime community today.  This is not a surprise at all since its first season was very successful and managed to attract millions of fans worldwide.  Rei Miyamoto is one of the main female protagonists in this anime show.  Fans of HOTD love her because she is both feisty and sweet.  She cares a lot about her friends and would do anything to save them from a horde of zombies even at the expense of sacrificing her own safety.  Although you should consider dieting before

This product is still untested but I haven’t found a tested one so might as well give it a try and share your feedback to all of us.

Miyamoto Rei School Uniform Set 

Alucard Costume from Hellsing Ultimate

Recommended for: vampire and guns enthusiasts

Props you need: Red hat, round eyeglasses, fake cigarette, two handguns

Alucard is basically a vampire Vash Stampede.  But unlike the comedic and merciful Vash, he is serious and very brutal especially towards other vampires who target innocent people.  He is the perfect choice for people who can act tough and proud since these characteristics are necessary to complete the Alucard look.  His clothes might be a bit tricky to do yourself but you can always hire someone to make it for you or buy them online.  A black long hair wig is also a good addition but it’s not a must.  Just be sure to mess up your hair during the Halloween party to at least make it look closer to the real deal.

Be the vampire slayer you wish to be with this Alucard Costume and it comes with the glasses and gloves!

 

Mayuri Kurotsuchi Costume from Bleach

Recommended for: Bleach fans, people who work in the medical field or those who love science

Props you need: katana replica, a purple headgear

Mayuri is by far the creepiest Bleach character to the point that anyone would assume that he is an antagonist at first glance.  Nevertheless, Mayuri is in the side of justice and the welfare of the Soul Society.  It may not look like it but he hates senseless killing.  He defends this way of thinking by pointing out that every pointless death is a wasted experiment specimen.   Portraying him can be quite challenging because of his weird attitude but it’s doable if you just put your mind to it and carefully observe his interactions in Bleach.  A lot of Mayuri Kurotsuchi cosplay costumes are sold online nowadays so you don’t need to worry regarding that matter and his makeup can also be easily copied even without the help of an expert.

This Mayuri Kurotsuchi costume sold online has some bad reviews but the issue is basically all about sizing so just make sure you measure your body well before deciding what size to order.

Hisoka Costume from Hunter X Hunter

Recommended for: Hunter X Hunter fans, clown lovers

Props you need: a deck of cards

I have a love and hate relationship with Hisoka.  In some episodes of Hunter X Hunter, he became Gon’s ally and helped him overcome challenging adversities.  Nevertheless, he always does something cruel from time to time which reminds us that he is naturally merciless and evil. Cosplaying Hisoka during Halloween is a great idea because he is a very well-known anime character.  I’ve even found several lists online which said that he is among the most famous villains in the anime world.  Hisoka’s clown costume can be purchased online but you can also make one on your own.  But what really makes a good Hisoka cosplay is not wearing the best cosplay costume but how you interpret his sly and playful attitude.  He also has various famous poses in Hunter X Hunter so be sure to memorize all of them so you can use them in event photos.

Check out this Hisoka Costume! I know it lacks reviews but the seller already sold other costumes with good reviews so I guess it’s safe to say that you can order this one worry free.

Rory Mercury Costume from Gate

Recommended for: Gate fans, Lolita fans, those who love wielding huge weapons, petite girls with long black hair

Props you need: a huge scythe

A cute little girl and a huge scythe may seem like a weird combination but it works. And this has been proven by the growing popularity of Rory Mercury, one of the main protagonists of the hit anime series Gate.  Rory is feared in her world and is even regarded as the God of Death and Destruction.  Nevertheless, she acts based on what she perceives to be just.  She may be cruel but every action she takes even those that involve killing can be justified.  Buying her costume online including the huge ribbons in her hair can be done easily online.  But this does not go true with her infamous scythe.  I think the best choice is to make it yourself.  It’s not that hard since you don’t really need to make it really big but just a few inches about your head. You can make it out of cardboard so it’s light and easy to carry.  Just seek help from a friend who knows how to paint to add the finishing designs on the blade and you’re Rory Mercury Scythe is ready to surprise everyone in your upcoming Halloween event.

This Rory Mercury Costume is pricier than other competitors but it’s complete with accessories and the seller has a good reputation so it’s the best choice if you ask me.

Being vertically challenged is not always a bad thing.  You may not be first picked in basketball games with your friends but it’s your time to shine this coming Halloween by slaying Frieza cosplay costume.  Frieza is one of the most famous villains in the Dragonball Series.  He is known for being powerful and cruel but later on, had a change of heart in the recent Dragonball Super Arc where he became Son Goku’s ally in the battle royal which decides the fate of our universe.  You have two options in cosplaying Frieza.  The first one is buying or making a full body costume which comes with a tail and headgear.  This is an expensive yet cooler choice.  The second one is done by using body paint.  More effort and creativity is needed for this to be successful but it won’t be as expensive as the first one.  Whichever of these two you choose is totally up to your budget and personal preference.  As long as you put your heart and mind into achieving the complete Frieza look, you’ll be just fine!

Dragon Ball Z Frieza Costume

Recommended for: Inuyasha fans, those who want to be unique and standout

Props you need: katana replica

Naraku is the sly and cruel mortal enemy of Inuyasha in the anime series of the same name.  His main goal is to be the strongest demon and rule over the world.  He thinks of no one as a friend and would do anything to acquire insurmountable power.  But unlike other villains, Naraku is quite fashionable.  He has an attractive appearance too which makes it creepier every time he shows his vile smile.  Cosplaying Naraku for a Halloween party is a great idea as long as you are willing to invest both money and time in it.  Since his clothes are intricate, you’re better off buying one online than making the whole set on your own.  His weapon of choice, the katana, on the other hand, can be easily done by either using wood or cardboard.  Be sure to look out for Inuyasha cosplayers during the Halloween party and ask for an epic collaboration photo!

This samurai cosplay costume should be enough as your dress to look like Naraku.  All you need to do is do something about his baboon pelt.

Props you need: eyeglasses shaped like a leaf, pink fur coat

You don’t need to wear all black on Halloween.  There are anime characters out there that are scary even though they wear colorful clothes and one of them is Donquixote Doflamingo.  He is a warlord who strives on wars as he is a supplier of guns, newly developed weapons, and even cursed fruits.  Doflamingo is proud of every evil thing he did and would not even think twice about doing them all again if needed.  He has no sense of guilt even when slaying innocent bystanders so you should not be deceived by his colorful outfit. Despite all these bad things about Doflamingo, One Piece fans during the Halloween party you plan to attend will surely swarm you if you decide to cosplay him since he is a quite popular anime character.

To be a knight in shining armor for a beautiful princess is a common fantasy among young boys.  But what if you became the villain disguising as a knight of truth and justice?  This is what happened to Heathcliff.  Thousands of Sword Art Online players who were trapped grouped up and formed the strongest guild in order to beat the game and they appointed Heathcliff as their leader without knowing that he is, in fact, the same person is the cause of their dire predicament.  Heathcliff is a full grown man so he is a perfect cosplay subject for adult men or women anime fans.

Do you work out?  Are you planning to show off your hard-earned muscles this coming Halloween?  Then you should think about cosplaying Escanor. He is one of the most loved characters in the hit anime series Seven Deadly Sins.  Escanor is not a monster nor is he a villain but his tremendous power is scary. There are only a few things needed to make a good Escanor look.  One is a bulky and toned body. Another is a mustache.  I suggest you go with the fake one since growing a mustache requires a lot of time and it will give you a pedophile look if you don’t handle it well. Haha Lastly is a pair of torn jeans.  Get these things right and you’re Escanor look will be ready to slay any Halloween party!

Are you excited to attend parties this coming Halloween but you don’t have enough time to work around a good costume?  Worry not my fellow anime fans because you can always have the option to cosplay simple yet still scary anime characters like Shinichi Izumi.  He is the main protagonist in the anime series Parasyte where he was infected by an alien life form. The alien planned to fully take over his body but Shinichi noticed the weird phenomenon just in the nick of time which left the alien trapped in his hand.  To look like Shinichi, all you need to do is wear a suit and create an alien hand using a glove as a base. You can also purchase premade migi, Shinichi’s alien partner, replicas sold online if you really want to get Shinichi’s look as close as possible and you won’t mind spending a bit more to make it happen.

Mumen Rider Costume from One Punch Man

Recommended for: One Punch Man fans, teens, bicycle riders

Props you need: mamachari bicycle

A hero riding a bike is a laughable scene to some.  But this is not true for those who know Mumen Rider.  He is the weak yet unyielding hero in the anime series One Punch Man.  What makes Mumen Rider special is his never-give-up attitude.  He knows he is weak yet he strives to be a hero and help those who are in need as much as he can.  Mumen Rider is the perfect anime character to cosplay if you want a unique theme and one who comes with an inspiring story. We have enough of those scary monsters costumes and I think what we need nowadays is a Halloween costume that can motivate people.

A mumen rider cosplay costume from a reliable source seems to be still rare these days so I think you don’t have a choice but to make your own.  Good luck to that and more power! I know you can do it! This shirt though is a good source of inspiration.

Top 10 New Must Read Manga You Should Not Miss!

Are you fed up on reading mainstream manga?  Does exploring new stories and getting to know interesting characters excite you?  Then why not try reading a new manga series the next time you have free time?  Reading manga is a fun way to pass time.  Do it during a long bus ride on the way home or while you are waiting for your laundry to be done.  And don’t simply settle with the most famous titles like One Piece and Naruto. You should never be afraid to try reading new ones.  Simply do a bit of research about the manga series that caught your attention to make sure that it has good reviews and you’re good to go.  I know the research part can be quite cumbersome so have compiled this list of must read manga to help you out.  You can thank me later by giving us a LIKE or sharing this list to our fellow manga lovers.


Exterminator

Are you a functional adult who has a stable job?  Do you love what you do for a living?  Or is it far from what your true passion is?  Naoki, an exterminator, can answer these questions instantly.  He loves his job and he is very good at it.  But he died and was transported to another world.  I know, you might be thinking that this is like the many transported to another world manga nowadays which follows an overused plot and generic characters.  You’re wrong.  Exterminator offers a new take to the common transported to another world story.  The main characters are very likable, the new fantasy world is vast and opens tons of possibilities, and it will only take a few chapters to convince anyone that it’s among the best manga to read.

 




Very Pure

Have you ever wonder what would you do if you can see through everything like having superman’s X-ray vision? I hope you don’t have dirty thoughts like me and the main protagonist of this manga series, Yang Ming.  He is the typical delinquent who hates studying and would rather go out for a stroll than stay within the four corners of a room while listening to a teacher’s endless babble.

His life eventually turned upside down when he saved an old man from a group of thugs and he was rewarded with a pair of magic glasses.  They don’t simply give him a clearer vision but a cool ability to see through anything he wishes.  But just like what Uncle Ben said, with great power comes great responsibility.  Will Yang use his newfound ability just to satisfy his perverted mind or for a much nobler cause?

Dungeon Nursery

Are you a fan of RPGs?  If you are then you most likely have at least a slight idea about the various things required to survive a dungeon teeming with monsters and traps.  If you ask me, I simply want the best equipment available. I would also prefer being a tank so I won’t die easily even if I make a mishap or two.  Having an ally who can serve as a lookout or support during battles is also very handy.  This was in the mind of Takashi Koizumi when he was transported to a fantasy world with an RPG-like setting and finding out that he has the talent to be a summoner.

Yet his high hopes for an easier new life instantly evaporated when he figured out that his current level only allows him to summon a young lvl1 goblin.  Can he survive with all the odds against him?  How can a summoner with a very weak summon last inside a dangerous dungeon?

 


Kenja No Mago

Magic is truly handy.  Imagine if it exists in our world.  We don’t have to worry about pollution from cars since we can use wind magic to fly towards our destination.  Cooking without gas won’t be an issue as well because we can use fire magic.  Water magic is also very handy in cleaning clothes, bathing, and keeping ourselves hydrated anytime and anywhere.  Water bottles and other wastes will be a thing of the past. This is how humanity strived in the fantasy world.  Magic did not only gave them comfort but also served as their main tool to ward off invaders and powerful monsters.

Shin was resurrected to this world while retaining knowledge about his previous life in our world.  He was adopted by the Magi and was thought powerful magic because of his potent magical talent.  But there’s one big problem about Shin as he grew as a young man.  He lacks social skills.  And there’s no better way to solve this issue other than sending him to a magic school where he can mingle with other aspiring magicians and learn at the same time.  But will everything go smoothly as planned?

Aside from being a magic/action manga, it's also promising and is bound to be among best romance manga to read.

 


Buchimaru Chaos

How far will you go to save or be with someone?  This manga series is not the typical one.  It is a mix of brutal action and drama.  It’s one of those serious manga series which you mysteriously enjoy.  There are no light scenes in this manga.  It starts off with Buchimaru helping Byakuya, his master, eliminating one lord after another.  Byakuya’s purpose is to eliminate the other lords in order to release the Blink Lord which has the power to bring anyone from the dead back to life.  Buchimaru on the other hand simply wants to be with Byakuya’s side and enjoy her smell.

I know it’s a weird fetish but it’s cute if you think of him as a child seeking for a mother’s love. Buchimaru Chaos is not for the weak-hearted but those who seek for brutal and bloody manga action will surely love it!

 


Seirei Gensouki - Konna Sekai de Deaeta Kimi ni

It’s normally hard to settle your thoughts and make decisions during tricky and time-constrained situations on your own.  Can you imagine being on the same situation while having someone’s soul which contributes his own idea inside your body?  It would be a disaster especially if you two have completely different approaches in the matter.  Nevertheless, Rio and Amakawa Haruto found a way to live coherently inside a single body.  In fact, they perform better than the common person because they are more knowledgeable and experienced.

This is true especially for Haruto because he came from our modern world.  The knowledge of his previous world is a great advantage for Rio who is struggling to avenge the death of his mother.  Will they be able to surpass the challenges ahead without getting the way of each other?  How can they use their special case to strive in life and achieve their personal goals?

 


Kamitachi ni Hirowareta Otoko

Among all the manga series mentioned in this list, Kamitachi ni Hirowareta Otoko is my favorite. It may follow the typical resurrected to another world story but it comes with a lot of twists.  First of all, the main protagonist Ryouma doesn’t aim for a glamorous life in the fantasy world.  His only wish is to live as simple as possible and if given the chance to make friends because he failed to do so in his previous life.  The god felt pity towards Ryouma so he gave him several gifts and an absurdly strong body to help him survive in the new world.

Will Ryouma’s life in the new world be different from his previous one?  What things can he contribute with his accumulated knowledge of the modern world and the strong body given by the god?

 


Domestic na Kanojo

Let’s move away a bit from fantasy and action.  Domestic na Kanojo is your best bet if you want a slice-of-life manga with tons of humor and a good amount of romance sprinkled on top.  It’s great for manga lovers who simply want to distress after a long and tiring day.  This manga’s plot is pretty basic but the characters are unique, lovable, and very relatable.  The story revolves around the life and struggles of two families who joined after both single parents decided to take their relationship to the next level.  Tension easily built up because the siblings involved were somehow connected prior the union.  Will their new family live harmoniously?  Can the step-siblings set aside their personal feelings for the sake of their parent’s happiness?

Eden (TSURUOKA Nobuhisa)

Being trapped in a VR game is a heaven-sent gift for gamers.  But what if it’s not just for a few days or months but three long years?  If all comes down to life or death, can it still be called a game?  This happened in the game Eden.  After realizing their fate, the players took various paths.  Some gave up and stayed in the game’s starting point while the braver ones ventured on and did their best to be the strongest.  The manga series main character is known as “Teacher”.  He decided to play the game alone and experience it from the bottom up.  This gave him unequaled knowledge about the game mechanics, a great advantage not just in exploring dangerous dungeons but also in battling against abusive players.  Will he be able to find a way out of this prison game?  I know what you’re thinking.  It’s basically a pirated version of Sword Art Online.  There’s a bit of truth behind that statement but not entirely.  It gives new things on the table and the story is a bit more detailed and realistic compared to SAO.  So don’t hesitate to give it a try my fellow otaku friends!

 

 

 


Isekai Omotenashi Gohan

Do you like food and cooking?  Read no more and jump right into this manga.  It’ great for passing time especially for those who appreciate preparing food more than eating.  I know you need to belong to the special few to have this kind of disposition in food but it’s also fun to read for normal people.  The foods are drawn with great detail to the extent that you’ll be hungry after a few pages.  The art style is very refreshing and the main characters have relatable personalities.  I just hope the creators don’t give this up because it’s a very promising manga series.

So that’s all of them. I hope you enjoyed reading my thoughts about every single one of them and somehow convinced you to check out at least one.  If a Manga gains enough fan-base, it’s most likely to be adapted into an anime series so don’t say your patronage is useless.  It’s exciting to see our favorite manga characters in action so let’s keep our hopes up that these new manga titles follow that route.  As always, thank you for reading this list and I hope you give it a LIKE and SHARE it to all of your fellow MANGA and ANIME friends mina!

Top 10 Demon Romance Anime

Are you tired of the typical anime love story?  Have you tried those that feature interracial couples?  Demon romance anime, for example, is a good choice if you want to deviate from the norm and experience a new and more exciting anime love story.  And like always, I’ll help you save time and effort in searching for the best demon romance anime by making a list of the best I’ve seen so far.

The power of love knows no boundaries.  It disregards social status, age, physical appearance, gender, and even race.  Once cupid’s arrow hits you, there’s no fighting it.  Demons are regarded as creatures of malice.  We expect them to have little to no ability to show compassion.  But in the anime world, it’s a completely different scenario since a lot of anime shows showcase good demon characters.  They stepped out from the bubble which society’s beliefs made for them and tried their best to productive members of the society.  Some of them even end up saving the whole world or building a strong bond with a group of friends or a special someone.  These demons deserve a chance and they should be celebrated as perfect examples of changing in a good way.  I hope you enjoy this list and somehow learn a lesson or two from each of these shows that has romance anime elements.

1. Inuyasha

Inuyasha and Kagome is undeniably one of the greatest anime love couple so far.  First of all, it’s mutual.  They care for each other and would risk even their own life just to guarantee the other’s safety.  Such a move is relatively easy for Inuyasha since he is a powerful demon who dances with death in every battle but it’s another story for a normal school girl like Kagome.

It takes a lot of guts and love for her to move in the frontline of a battle just to aid or rescue Inuyasha but he did it in a couple of occasions in the series.  This only proves how much she cares for Inuyasha.  Their love is brave, true, and kind; something every one of us is hoping to experience in real life.  How about you?  Have you found the person brave enough to fight for your love?

If you don’t mind, share your wonderful story in the comments section below to inspire other readers!

2. Kamisama Kiss

The anime revolves around the story of Nanami who is a high school girl. Due to some misfortune, she ended up being homeless. This was the time when he met someone in the name of Mikage who is in trouble. Nanami extended her help and as a sign of gratitude, he offers the use of his unoccupied home.
The house was actually a shrine where Nanami also met Tomoe (a fox yokai) and their love story developed in time. This goes to prove that being in love with a supernatural is not impossible in the anime world.
This anime is fun to watch and would really make you fall in love and be reminded of love.

3. The Devil is a Part-Timer!

A demon lord and a hero are destined to fight each other to the death.  This is the template in almost every fantasy anime nowadays other than The Devil is a Part-Timer.  The setting introduced in this anime series is quite unique as these two mortal enemies are trapped in modern Japan.  They were left with almost no choice other than to work like the usual employees and live normally in order to survive.

And along the way, they develop a special kind of bond.  Emi Yusa, the hero, started to know the real Satan, Sadao Maou.  He is far different from the demon lord he wants to kill back in their original world.   Will their impromptu truce lead to them being friends or even more?

The Devil is a Part-Timer! Is a fantasy, comedy, and romance anime how you surely don’t want to miss!


4. The 7 Deadly Sins

The love story of this anime highlights the couple Meliodas and Elizabeth. Meliodas is the captain of the famous powerful group called the 7 Deadly Sins. This group is known to be able to take down an entire kingdom army.
On the other hand, Elizabeth is the princess of  Liones who is on the journey to save their kingdom from the Holy Knights.
Elizabeth immediately fell in love with Meliodas because she saw his sense of justice. Meliodas is the kind of person who would not want to see anyone oppressed by anyone. He helps without hesitation.
Meliodas slowly fell in love with Elizabeth since she resembles someone who he loved so dearly in the past.

5. High School DxD

We all have our fair share of fun High School memories.  But I’m sure they are all nothing compared to what Issei Hyodo and his friends can share.  Don’t get me wrong though, Issei is not the ideal prince charming or knight in shining armor.  He is basically a stupid pervert.  His goal is to become the harem king.  Despite all of this, there are still a few people who believe in his potential.

And he did not disappoint them.  Issei slowly climbed from being a low-rank devil to becoming one of the strongest in their school.  Asia, his party’s healer, played a major role in his success.  She is attracted to Issei to the point that she would be jealous every time he flirts with another girl.  Although Issei only sees her as one of the many girls he wants to belong to his harem, their relationship is somewhat special.

Who knows someday Issei would have a change of heart and only devote his heart only to Asia?


6. Chrono Crusade

A demon and a nun is a weird pair.  Nonetheless, it clicked in Chrono Crusade.  Their relationship was supposed to be like that of a slave and a master but it turned out to be something more special.  Rosette Christopher, the nun, needed Chrono’s power in order to save her brother.  Chrono, the demon, on the other hand, is searching for his true identity and is in a constant struggle against his true nature.

Although he is a demon, Chrono is gentle and kind. He is loyal and would do anything to protect Rosette.  The anime showed a few hints that their relationship has already gone past friendship but it was not given enough time to materialize.  I’m about to spoil the show so skip this if you are planning to watch Chrono Crusade for the first time.  They both die in the end after failing to save Rosette’s brother.

It’s such a tragic ending.  Nevertheless, it’s not just all about what happened in the end but mostly in between.  Their struggles together made their relationship stronger and it can serve as a reminder for new couples out there to never give up and always fight for the love they share.


7. Maoyuu Maou Yuusha

Have you ever thought what happens after the demon king is defeated?  Do you expect every chaos around the world to end in an instant which would lead the way to peace and prosperity?  If your answer is yes then you’re probably reading too many fairy tales.  It’s not the case.  In fact, it’s the other way around.

The demon army won’t stop just because their leader is dead.  Moreover, other people corrupted by greed will eventually take the place of the demon king’s role.  The hero in the anime Maoyuu Maou Yuusha realized this when he reached the demon king palace.  He decided to work with the demon king which is actually a woman so she is technically a queen.

The demon queen is far from the ugly and wicked creature everyone imagines her to be.  She is beautiful, kind, and rational.  So it’s not surprising that the hero slowly falls in love with her as they both embark on a journey to help the struggling kingdom and make it a better place for everyone.

8. Blue Exorcist

The story of Blue Exorcist centers on Satan’s two sons who were raised in our world.  The older one Yukio Okumura ended up as a completely normal person but his younger brother, Rin Okumura, was different.  He inherited a demonic power specifically the ability to conjure blue flames.  This is probably the main reason behind the anime show’s title since Rin aspires to be a good exorcist just like his older brother.

So where’s the romance in this Blue Exorcist?   You might not see it in the first episodes but Rin’s female friends Shiemi Moriyama and Kamiki Izumo have special feelings toward Rin.  They may not be expressive about it but it’s obvious that they see Rin as a man worth being with for the rest of their lives.

 

9. Rosario+Vampire

Would you go as far as enrolling in a Yokai Academy just to finish school?  This is what Tsukune Aono did after he wasn’t able to get into the local high schools.  The Yokai Academy is not only dangerous for humans but they also do not allow humans to be enrolled in their school.

Such an act is punishable by death so Tsukune is trying his best to hide his true identity. His stay in the monster school would have been harder if not for Moka Akashiya.  She is a powerful vampire who is also Tsukune’s first friend in the school.  Moka always helps Tsukune whenever he finds himself in a bad spot.

Despite being a normal human, Tsukune does not back down to any challenge especially if it involves a pretty woman in distress.  But it’s obvious that no matter how many he ends up saving, his heart belongs to only one, Moka.

10. Yu Yu Hakusho

Love in anime is not hard to find.  This is because fans love it when they see their favorite anime characters fall in love with each other despite all the challenging circumstances around them.  I think this stems from the fact that we want their love to bloom despite all odds and it inspires us to fight for love as well in real life.

Yu Yu Hakusho may be a classic anime but it is still one of the most well-known and loved today.  It follows the life of Yusuke and his adventures in both the real world and the afterlife where demons rule.  All throughout the series, it is depicted that he is in love with his childhood sweetheart, Keiko.  They were simply close friends at school in the beginning but their relationship was taken to another level when Yusuke died.  Yusuke was raised from the dead at the expense of being a detective of the underworld’s governing body.  He was tasked to battle the most powerful demons in a competition and to maintain the world’s balance in the underworld.

His last and most dangerous mission yet took years.  Despite all this, Keiko patiently waited for his return. This kind of love, although it’s not in real life, is beautiful to watch.

Best Demon and Human Romance Anime

The list below this are the anime series which we think are still best but did not make it to our top choices. The choices above are the ones we highly recommend. But, we all know that there are still a lot of great series which really good and we decided to include these in our list here.


Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai

Anime shows about Otakus like us are common but Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai took this genre to the next level.  They added more humor and pretty ladies to the equation creating an anime series that Otakus and casual anime fans would equally enjoy.  The story is about Keima Katsuragi.  He is a certified Otaku who is known for being the best in capturing girls in virtual simulation games.  The problem is that his skills and experience in girls are only limited to the virtual world.  As the series progressed he finds himself in the middle of a mission to collect souls trapped in real girls in order to save his own life.  He desperately used his dating game knowledge for this purpose and it went well.  What he did not expect was to fall in love with Chihiro.  He tried to stop his feelings but his efforts are futile.  When love struck, it is unstoppable.  And it appears this rule is applicable not just in real life but in the anime world too.


 


Beelzebub

Would you still love someone who currently has heavy responsibilities and simply can’t focus all his attention and love towards you?  What if it’s a baby?  And on top of that, the son of Satan himself?  That’s got to be hard for a woman to fall in love with such a guy right?  This challenge was wholeheartedly taken by Hilda.  She is the adoptive mother and wet nurse of Beelzebub IV, one of the main protagonists in this anime series.  Tatsumi Oga is the young lad who adopted her master in our world.

She disapproved of the idea at first and belittles Oga’s capability as a parent.  But everything changed when Oga successfully protected the child from a strong adversary.  She even thanked him afterward which is contrary to her usual cold personality.  As their story went on, Hilda suffered from amnesia.  In this state, her treatment toward Oga took a completely different route.  She is now appreciative of Oga’s efforts as a parent and even blushes whenever she is near him.

Is this really love or just a result of her condition?  Regardless of what it is, it’s fun to see how a cat and dog relationship blooms into a sweet and romantic one.


Black Butler

Romance is not limited between opposite sexes.  Our society evolved over the years and gender orientation went along with it.  In fact, there’s a worldwide community composed of individuals who prefer the same sex as a partner.  Although it is not obviously portrayed, it’s nice to see that anime shows like Black Butler feature same-sex relationships.  In the mentioned anime show, Sebastian Michaelis, the demon butler, shares a special relationship with his master Ciel Phantomhive.

There are times when the butler manifests common demon traits like being unforgiving, brutal, and uncaring but he never fails to protect his master.  There’s no greater love than from a person who is willing to give away his life just to save you from any danger.  Do you agree that these two are bound to be lovers as their story progresses? Leave your ideas in the comments section below!

 


Uragiri wa Boku no Namae o Shitteiru

What would you do if the woman you love in the past is reincarnated as a man?  Would you still love her?  This is the question Luka Crosszeria, a strong and handsome demon and one of the main protagonists of the anime show Uragiri wa Boku no Namae o Shitteiru needs to answer.  And his action defied the expectations of many.  He decided to stay beside the love of his life Yuki Giou and take care of him just like before.

Luka is the only one aware of their past so they are currently sharing an awkward relationship.  Yuki’s power relies on the light which is contrary to demons like Luka yet they trust and help each other every time an enemy arises.  But Luka doesn’t want to be healed by Yuki every time he is injured since he knows that it causes him pain.

This alone proves how much he cares for Yuki and that his love for him transcends beyond gender.

 


Yumekui Merry

Are you a dreamer?  I have a friend who dreams a lot and she shares her amazing dreams often making me very obvious.  It’s been a while since I had one and I’m looking forward to one as long as it doesn’t turn into a nightmare halfway.  The anime show Yumekui Merry is all about dreams.  The story is simple but unique and there’s a sprinkle of romance and comedy every now and then making it very entertaining.

It features the dynamic duo composed of the gifted Yumeji Fujiwara and the kind dream demon Merry Nightmare.  The two of them needs to collect various clues and fight off other evil dream demons to find a way for Merry Nightmare to return to the dream world.

 


Shuffle!

Being in love with your childhood best friend is a common story.  However, this kind of relationship does not always go well.   There are cases where the boy is indecisive or the girl develops feelings toward another boy as they grow older.  In the anime show Shuffle!, Rin Tsuchimi and Kaede Fuyou struggled to keep their relationship as childhood friends because of a bad experience.

It’s obvious that they like each other but the bad memory that links them together makes it almost impossible for their friendship to bloom into love.  Moreover, since Rin is kind and caring for the girls he meets along the way easily fell in love with him.  Will they be given the chance to express their feelings?  Or will this be another romantic anime series with a sad ending?

Hagure Yuusha no Estetica

How can you love someone who killed your father?  If you want a good answer, ask Miu Osawa.  She is the daughter of the demon king slain by the hero Akatsuki Osawa.  To the defense of the hero, he is simply doing his job.  And he even granted the demon king’s last wish which is for him to look after his daughter.  Miu posed as Akatsuki’s younger sister so no one would question why they are living together.  Despite Akatsuki’s pure intentions, it was not easy for Miu to forgive him.

Nevertheless, her feelings toward Akatsuki slowly changed every time he saves her from one predicament to another.  Akatsuki might be abusive to other girls and very prideful but his courage, loyalty, and care towards the people he loves are unrivaled.  He is the hero for a reason, right?


These are Anime Series which are not the Best, but Worth Mentioning

The Testament of Sister New Devil

In most cases, it’s the servant’s duty to protect the master but it’s the other way around in the anime show The Testament of Sister New Devil.  Basara Toujou, the hero, tied Mio Naruse in a slave contract.  It was only recently that Mio became aware of her origin.  But it was not a problem for Basara.  Her magical powers are strong but still not enough to protect her from the current demon king and his minions.

This is where Basara comes in the picture.  As the successor of the Hero Clan, he is confident of his skills and he would do anything within his means to protect Mio.  Why would a hero do so?  Of course, it’s because of the power of love; a love that defies both race and duty!

 

 


I Couldn't Become a Hero, So I Reluctantly Decided to Get a Job

A hero trains in preparation for the day he faces the demon lord.  This is why the Hero School was founded.  It serves as a training ground for heroes so they won’t end up as sacrificial lambs for the demon lord and its army.  But what if somebody already defeated the demon lord?  What would happen to the students?  Raul Chaser fell to this tricky situation so he decided to look for a job aside from being a hero.  Coincidentally, he met the deceased demon lord’s daughter Phino Bloodstone along the way.

The duo struggles to live and work normally.  Nevertheless, they always find a way out of every problem with the help of each other.  And of course, a special kind of relationship is blooming between the two without them noticing.


Kyo Kara Maoh!

Another boy to boy romance here so heads up! This anime show is really entertaining not just because of its funny characters but mainly due to the truckloads of comic relief it brings on the table.  They usually focus on the two male characters who are engaged Shibuya Yuuri and Wolfram von Bielefelt.  Yuri is the 27th demon king of Shin Makoku while Wolfram is the youngest son of the former demon king.

They were rivals at first but everything changed when Yuri defeated Wolfram in a duel.  From that day on, Wolfram vowed to be Yuri’s most loyal aid.  Wolfram is obvious about showing how he feels toward Yuri.  He turns jealous when a beautiful girl or handsome boy approaches Yuri.  He also shows up in Yuri’s room without prior notice just to surprise him or check his well-being.

If that’s not sweet, I don’t know what is.  If you’re a fan of this kind of romance then this anime is a must-watch!


Rage of Bahamut: Genesis

Have you been friend zoned?  Is it cruel?  Well, ask Favaro Leone from Rage of Bahamut: Genesis if you want tips on how to get over from such kind of experience.  As a bounty hunter, he accepted Amira’s proposal.  What he thought of as a normal work relationship turned out to be something more special later on.  It was supposed to be just an escort service but he slowly developed feelings towards Amira as they escape one dangerous situation after another.  Amira’s personality also changed after spending time with Favaro.

She was once a recluse and finds it hard to trust people. We can’t blame her because of it is a result of her dark past.  Nonetheless, Favaro’s laid back and quirky personality go through her.  She made a friend for the first time which changed Amira’s view of life as a whole.  That it’s not just all about despair and struggles but it can also be fun and exciting at times.


Berserk

What type of girl are you looking for?  Are you into the shy ones?  Or those who can fight back and would never back down in an argument?  Guts from Berserk will surely prefer the latter.  He is one of the strongest members of the Band of Hawks.  The gang forced him to join at first but he did it willingly after being beaten by their leader, Griffith.  Guts and Casca’s love story did not start right away.

It was not love at first sight by any means.  In fact, Casca did not approve the idea of recruiting Guts.  Nevertheless, the hands of faith brought them closer to each other.  And they were given the chance to express their feelings toward each other after Guts returned and saved their gang from enemy attack.  Is it really possible to nurture a pure relationship in a cruel world?  Guts and Casca are fighting their way to prove that it’s possible!


Makai Ouji: Devils and Realist

Is this another boy to boy anime romance?  Am I starting to imagine things or is this kind of genre slowly becoming popular?  I’m not really against it though.  We are all free to love whoever we want.  This time around the persons involved are the demon Dantalion and a member of the noble family William Twining.  William is the main protagonist of this anime show and is known to be an extreme realist and a brilliant mind.  He is a descendant of Solomon and the Elector, someone who is tasked to choose the next King of Hell.

As a realist, he was skeptical about the existence of demons at first but gradually accepted them after several encounters with beings and phenomena that science and logic can’t explain.  He made ties with Dantalion in the school he is attending.  Although still unconfirmed, William and Dantalion might have mutual feelings for each other.

Dantalion is more expressive as he once said that he wants to stay by William’s side forever.


Hakuouki Hekketsuroku

An anime that highlights swordsmanship and romance; what more can you ask for?  The anime show Hakuouki Hekketsuroku offers this unique flavor and as a result successfully gathered a huge number of fan base worldwide.  The story revolves around Chizuru Yukimura and her struggles as the newest member of the Shinsengumi.  She is the only female member so her early life with the group was not easy.  She was tasked to do trivial things Chizuru did not miss any chance to prove her worth.  In fact, she caught the attention of Toshizou Hijikata also known as the Demon Vice-Commander.  Although the feeling is still one-sided, the two of them being a real couple is not out of the possibility.  You might be wondering which part of this anime is demon-related.   Well, Chizuru is a member of a clan claimed to be descendants of demons.  Her current fighting skills disapprove this but who knows. He might become one of the strongest Shinsengumi members someday and prove that her demonic blood is not mere hearsay.


Overlord

I really can’t help but be excited every time Overlord is included in a list.  Isn’t it obvious? It’s currently one of my favorite anime shows.  So you’re asking me why? It’s simple. Overlord has everything we want from an anime show.  It has an interesting plot, a funny but wise main character, interesting side characters, a vast world setting, and most importantly intense fight scenes. Not to mention the sexy and beautiful Overlord female characters. What more can you ask for?  Haven’t I told you it also has a little bit of romance?

The main protagonist Ainz Ooal Gown may not be able to express strong emotions because he is a skeleton but without this, it would be easy for him to reciprocate the love Albedo, the Guardian Overseer, is constantly expressing towards him.  They share a unique relationship but since Ainz is incapable of loving, he decided to treat her along with all the NPCs as his own children.


Seraph of the End

What’s wrong about becoming a vampire?  It has a lot of benefits if you ask me.  You’ll live for an eternity and you don’t have to worry about any kind of sickness.  As long as your family and other loved ones are also vampires, you can enjoy life as it is but longer.  Yuichiro Hyakuya will never accept this logic.  For him, vampires are the enemy of humanity and should be all exterminated.  He was once enslaved by vampires during his childhood so having such kind of mindset is not surprising.  His childhood friend Mikaela Hyakuya was left during their escape and was turned into an experiment which made him hate vampires even more.  They met again several years later but they found themselves on different sides of the war.  Is their relationship strong enough to overshadow their present dissimilarities?  Can Yuichiro love the existence he hates the most?


Problem Children Are Coming From Another World, Aren't They?

There are a lot of transported to another world anime being developed and released nowadays.  Some of them are good but most are mediocre at best.  Problem Children are coming from Another World Aren’t They? successfully tweaked the common storyline and made it more interesting.  The main protagonist Izayoi Sakamaki has only one goal and that is to have fun.  He does so by solving problems instantly through violence and using this brilliant mind as a tactician to overwhelm overconfident adversaries.  He is also a pervert and one of his targets is Black Rabbit.  She is the one who summoned the problem children from another world.  The two of them share a funny relationship.  Izayoi won’t ever miss the chance to peek on Black Rabbit whenever she takes a bath.  Nevertheless, Black Rabbit seems to trust Izayoi and Yo as companions.  Will their wild encounters lead to love?  That’s for all of us to find out!


Congratulations!  You made it through all the list entries!  That’s something worth being proud of especially if you read all my rants on each one of them.  I know you also stumbled upon several grammar mistakes so please overlook them.  The important thing is that you get me right?  We share the same anime language so I bet you do.  Do you have other demon romance anime in mind that is better than any of the titles mentioned in this list?  Then share your great ideas in the comments section below!  Help me make this list a better one.  As always, LIKE and SHARE THE ANIME LOVE MINA!
