Axis Powers Hetalia



































STROYLINE :
Axis Powers Hetalia is basically a webcomic-turned-manga-turned-anime about the world's countries turned into bishonen and left to play out World History, cracky boys' love style. All the countries have their intense stereotypes (Canada covers everything in maple syrup, Russia's snow-crazy, and America loves pizza). Countries merging mean a marriage, alliances (usually) mean a relationship, countries splitting are a divorce

Mein Kampf










































A Japanese publishing firm has re-edited a translation of Adolf Hitler’s ideological pamphlet, first published in 1924. But this edition has a new twist: it’s a manga-style comic. It’s made quite a splash in Japanese bookshops.

"Mein Kampf" is the latest publication in a collection of historical comic books called "Manga de Dokuha" ("Learn with mangas") edited by the publishing firm East Press. The collection already includes manga versions of Karl Marx’s "Capital" and Tolstoy’s "War and Peace". These revamped classics usually sell around 35,000 copies nationwide.

The publishing rights for “Mein Kampf” have until now been held by the German region of Bavaria, which decided which firms were authorised to publish new editions of the text. But the copyright will expire in 2015 and the pamphlet will enter the public domain.

East Press explains that the manga is a "tool to study Hitler’s personality", to "understand the thoughts that generated such a tragedy".

Good bye Yoshito Usui (crayon sinchan)

On Sunday, authorities have identified the body discovered at Arafune mountain as that of missing Crayon Shin-chan manga creator Yoshito Usui through dental records and other means.

The body was discovered 120 meters below the mountain's Tomoiwa cliff and reported at about 10:25 a.m. on Saturday by a male climber. Usui's backpack, camera, and other items had fallen about 50 meters away. Inside Usui's backpack was his mobile phone, wallet, and clothes. A police helicopter from Gunma Prefecture airlifted the body on Sunday afternoon. Police from the nearby town of Shimonita concluded that the 51-year-old creator died from collapsed lungs and other injuries sustained across his entire body sometime in the afternoon of September 11.

According to Usui's family, Usui had said that he was "going hiking for a day in Gunma Prefecture," as he often did, on the morning of September 11. His mobile phone was last detected in the vicinity of Karuizawa, a town about 100 kilometers (about 60 miles) northwest of his Kasukabe home, on Monday. Karuizawa is located in the mountainous eastern part of Nagano Prefecture, near the border of the equally mountainous Gunma Prefecture.

In particular, Usui was said to have expressed his intent to climb the Arafune mountain, which towers 1,422 meters (4,665 feet) high at the border between Nagano and Gunma Prefectures. According to Gunma Prefecture's police, there are no guardrails near the top of Tomoiwa cliff, but the established climber's trail is too far from the cliffside for someone to fall. Authorities had been searching this area since his wife reported his disappearance on September 12, after he did not return the night before.

The editorial staff at Futabasha's Manga Town magazine has stated on Sunday night that the "future publication [of Crayon Shin-chan] is to be determined." Futabasha said it was "going through great shock, now that the worst outcome has come to past. There are no words to express the anguish of the surviving family, but we just pray for his happiness in the next world."

YAKITATE !! JAPAN






















Summary:
The story focuses on Kazuma Azuma, a boy on his quest to create "Ja-pan", a national bread for Japan itself. He initially heads to Tokyo to expand his bread-making horizons at the bread-making chain Pantasia; the story continues with Azuma's exploits with his other coworkers.

Although the story has baking as its main theme, the parts that generate the most interest are the outrageous puns in the story. Especially notable are the "reaction" based puns made by the judges, who go to great lengths to prove a single point about the bread that they had tasted. The series in general also pokes fun at the shōnen genre's tendency to be melodramatic over mundane tasks.

Yakuza Girl - Blade Shikake no Hanayome



































Summary :
Set in modern day Japan on the grounds of Daihon Academy, the manga follows the protagonist Senguu Fumihiro as he enters the academy, claimed to be one of the most prestigious in the entire country, to find a wife and thus satisfy the wish of his grandmother (whom wanted to see her great grandchildren before passing away). Of course, knowing absolutely nothing of what he sees as a top-level school, Fumihiro is caught completely off guard when he learns that technically every student and teacher of Daihon is in fact wielder of supernatural skills and powers. Worst however, is that the students, aggregated in "clans", are allowed to brutally murder each other - even their grades are based upon their enemies' death toll (i.e. the number of students of enemy clans they killed). In such an absurd scenario, Fumihiro's aid comes from Akari, the girl to whom he proposed when he saw her for the firs time.

BLAME!




























Blame! (ブラム!, Buramu!) is a ten-volume cyberpunk manga by Tsutomu Nihei. The tagline for this manga is "Adventure-seeker Killy in the Cyber Dungeon quest!" or "Maybe on Earth, Maybe in the Future".

A six part original net animation was produced in 2003, with a seventh episode included on the DVD release. A full-length CGI render movie is in the works.

Plot:
Killy, a silent loner possessing an incredibly powerful weapon known as a Gravitational Beam Emitter, wanders a vast technological world known as "The City". He is searching for Net Terminal Genes, a (possibly) extinct genetic marker that allows humans to access the "Netsphere", a sort of computerized control network for The City. The City is an endless vertical space of artificially-constructed walls, stairways and caverns, separated into massive "floors" by nearly-impenetrable barriers known as "Megastructure". The City is inhabited by scattered human and transhuman tribes as well as hostile cyborgs known as Silicon Creatures. The Net Terminal Genes appear to be the key to halting the unhindered, chaotic expansion of the Megastructure, as well as a way of stopping the murderous horde known as the Safeguard from destroying all humanity.

Along the way, Killy meets and joins forces with a resourceful engineer named Cibo and a tribe of human warriors called the Electro-Fishers. They are pursued by the Safeguard, who view any human without Net Terminal Genes as a threat to be extinguished on sight.

K-On! last episode


Finally the last episode of K-On!. It's already flying around the internet since last night. This last episode really makes me confuse, because in the end I don't see anything like any other finale. It's just Ritsu, Mio, Mugi, Azusa and Yui sitting in their preparation room. Nothing special. But in this last episode we can see that all the character have already matured despite the mature thing is simple things. Nothing changed in the OP and ED song. In Japan, K-On! is booming rapidly.

Neon Genesis Evangelion




















This anime is a legend. Many awards had been given to this anime. Some awards were from film festival. The anime was created by Gainax, written and directed by Hideaki Anno, and co-produced by TV Tokyo and Nihon Ad Systems (NAS). Gainax suddenly gained many die hard fans because of Evangelion anime. This anime was a controversial because of it's story and plot that included some of Catholic and believes around the world. Hideaki Anno made us confused by it's emotional character.

The characters were Shinji Ikari, Rei Ayanami and Asuka Langley Soryu. According to Anno, Evangelion was an attempt to make all perspectives into one, creating characters that represent different things to different viewers to make it impossible for everyone to arrive at a single theory. I had to watched this anime for few times till I understand fully about the story really was.

The most prominent symbolism takes its inspiration from Judeo-Christian sources and frequently uses iconography and themes from Judaism, Christianity, Gnosticism,[58] and Kabbalism, in the series's examination of religious ideas and themes.

Evangelion had 1 movie. Neon Genesis Evangelion : Death & Rebirth. There will be a live action movie in 2009 if they don't cancel it. The live action movie will be made by ADV, Gainax, and Weta Workshop Ltd.. Its release is currently projected to occur at any time ranging from as early as 2009 to as late as 2015. In December 2005, Fortune Magazine reported in an article about ADV Films that it had raised "about half of the $100 million to $120 million" needed to produce the film. It's not completely clear if this money was raised by ADV alone or if part of that amount was contributed by Gainax. Gainax already spent a lot of money on this project. Hopefully this live action is not like Dragon Ball.

Keroro Gunsou : Sgt. Keroro and gangs



















Who can ever forget this stupid Sgt. kKeroro. I just can't stop watching all the episode. This is a real surprise to a comedy anime as the characters are really well done. Each character has his or her own unique personality. Facial expressions are carefully done to ensure that their personality shows even on their faces. Character development is fairly well done in this series as well. I just found out that the fifth movie will come out. Don't know the exact date, but I will look for it. I'm still confused with Pekopen or Pekopon. Because in the anime all the frog say Pekopon. While most of the review in the internet type Pekopen. Anyway, this anime had a lot of episode and I'm still watching, huff.....

Anime Lover want to write something

I want to make this blog as a review and brief explanation on what, when, who about Anime / Japan Cartoon... Some says that it's useless to make a blog that is common... But in my blog, I want to give information from old Anime's to the new one withouth giving subjective comments... I write based on the ratings, viewers, and almost all the Anime I wrote here was good... In summary, I just want to say thank you for reading my blog and I hope you will come back regularly... ^^

3rd Zero no Tsukaima Anime: Summer's Princesses no Rondo

The title of the third Zero no Tsukaima (The Familiar of Zero) television anime series has been announced at Tokyo International Anime Fair 2008 and on the franchise's website: Zero no Tsukaima: Princesses no Rondo. The anime's premiere is now set for this summer in Japan. Noboru Yamaguchi and Eiji Usatsuka's original light novels begins with Louise, a hapless, struggling student who has earned the nickname "Zero Louise" from her fellow students in the Tristein Academy of Magic in an alternate world. When she tries to summon an animal companion to be her familiar, she ends up summoning Hiraga Saito — a Japanese boy from Earth.

The third series was first announced in December. Director Yuu Kou (Chrono Crusade, Loveless) and character designer Masahiro Fujii (Mahoraba ~Heartful days~) will return from the first two series. Series script supervisor Nahoko Hasegawa (Hidamari Sketch, Armitage: Dual-Matrix) has joined the staff. Rie Kugimiya (Louise) will lead a cast that is almost entirely intact from the first two series. Geneon Entertainment announced that it acquired the rights to the first anime series, but the North American release has been in limbo due to Geneon's pullout from in-house production and distribution of anime.

K-On! Character

Yui Hirasawa
(平沢 唯, Hirasawa Yui)
Voiced by: Aki Toyosaki
Yui is the main character of K-On!. She is one of the members of the light music club, and plays a Heritage Cherry Sunburst Gibson Les Paul Classic electric guitar. She does not get good grades in school (though when properly coached, she can achieve astounding results) and is easily distracted by trivialities. Yui is clumsy and easily spaces out most of the time. She takes a huge liking for any kind of food (but admits that she does not gain any weight). She has her younger sister Ui to take care of her and keep herself in line. She has a very easy-going nature, but when hyped, has incredible concentration, though this is only limited to one subject at a time. She will totally neglect any other things in the process, to the point of forgetting anything she has learned beforehand. Despite all of this, Yui is still devoted to her band and will practice hard enough for the club. She has perfect pitch and is one of the group's vocalists , although she is known to forgetting her lyrics at mid-performance, as well as overdoing things, making her unable to perform sometimes.
Ritsu Tainaka
(田井中 律, Tainaka Ritsu)
Voiced by: Satomi Satō
Ritsu (or Ricchan, as nicknamed by Yui) is the president of the light music club and plays a Yamaha Hipgig Drumset. She has an ambiguous yet upbeat personality, and often has trouble remembering important club activities and announcements. Ritsu is cheerful, often likes making jokes and is sarcastic most of the time. She usually brainstorms for ideas to earn more money and for the club's success. She says she chose to play the drums because they are "cool", but in reality, she admits that she has trouble playing instruments which involve intricate finger movements, such as the bass, guitar and keyboard. She is a childhood friend of Mio and will often tease her whenever she is cowering from something and has the opportunity to do so. Ritsu is always on the go and will stop at nothing for the success of the light music club.
Mio Akiyama
(秋山 澪, Akiyama Mio)
Voiced by: Yōko
HikasaMio is a shy girl who is in the light music club and plays a left-handed, 3-Color Sunburst Fender Precision Bass (Fender Jazz Bass in the anime), with a tortoiseshell pickguard. She originally intended to join the literary club, but is forced into the light music club by her childhood friend and the club's drummer, Ritsu. She gets excellent grades in school, but is bad with listening to stories involving macabre experiences, and cowers whenever something gross is brought up. While she can be mature and strict sometimes, she gets embarrassed easily, and is often teased by Ritsu and Sawako, their club adviser. She cites that she chose bass since it is not the center of attention in the band, unlike the guitarist (though being the vocalist somewhat negates this). Mio is more technical when it comes to music, and Yui often comes to her when she is in need of more guitar tutorials. She is the main vocalist in the group and also writes the songs, although they feature some odd lyrics like "Light and Fluffy Time". She is left-handed and is fascinated by other left-handed bass guitar players. Due to an unexpected accident in one of their live performances, a fan club for her is then made (much to her dismay considering the circumstance).

Tsumugi Kotobuki
(琴吹 紬, Kotobuki Tsumugi)
Voiced by: Minako
Kotobuki Tsumugi, often referred to as 'Mugi' by her friends, is a wealthy girl with a gentle and sweet personality who plays a Korg Triton Extreme 76 Key keyboard in the light music club. Tsumugi is considered a piano prodigy since she has been playing the piano since she was four and has experience in winning various piano contests. She is the daughter of a company president, and her family has several villas in various places around Japan. She often brings confectionery and an assortment of sweets and pastries to the club room, and she diligently makes tea with a tea set which is kept in their club room. Although she is a sweet and gentle girl, she is often weirdly entranced by the sight of two girls interacting closely together, sometimes imagining something more risqué in her head (both Mio and Ritsu find this awkward at times). She originally intends to join the choir club, but joins the light music club instead after receiving an invitation and encouragement from both Mio and Ritsu.
Azusa Nakano
(中野 梓, Nakano Azusa)
Voiced by: Ayana Taketatsu
Azusa is a new student who joins the light music club and plays a Fender Mustang electric guitar. She is in the same year and class as Ui and has quite a mysterious demeanor. She is a self-proclaimed novice guitarist who has been playing the guitar since she was in the fourth grade, and her parents are working in a jazz band. She often finds herself bewildered by the tea parties and cosplaying aspects of the club, when she would rather just practice and is curious on how the club is able to play so well despite their problems and lack of practice. However, she has a certain weakness for cakes and can be calmed down rather easily, sometimes by just being petted. She is constantly hugged by Yui and is nicknamed Azu-nyan after trying on a pair of cat ears and meowing. In the band, she looks up to Mio the most due to her maturity and the fact that she is an experienced bassist. Since joining, Yui comes to her for advice on playing guitar, as well as maintenance.
