January 5, 2014 Leave a comment

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 17,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Hey Everyone

Essentially it is a fantasy slice of life that revolves around dead teenagers, their lives and helping each other reaching happiness in a limbo world. Anyway hope you stick around for that till next time, for now ill link you to a small funny snippit from the anime.

Toradora Anime talk

March 11, 2012 6 comments

Hey Everyone

Today I am going to talk about the anime which I mentioned in the last video of the week. The anime is called Toradora and it is a high school romance, with a great balance of comedy as well as family and friend issues tied in with emotion. The show consists of 25 episodes at a standard length of around 20 minutes each, so if you really want to watch it as fast as possible it would probably take you 2-3 days depending on your schedule.

Anyway the show mainly focuses on 2 characters, a teenage male named Ryuji who is somewhat falsely classified as a scary delinquent mainly due to his eyes, (this then becomes a running joke in the anime as the audience sees that Ryuji in reality is like a stay at home parent who cooks and cleans, and becomes whipped over the main female character in the story) and the second character is a short but dangerous female teenage character named Taiga (also reffered to as a legend by the name of the palmtop tiger due to her height and agressive nature).

Next anime talk?

Hey Everyone

I wanted to try something different in regards to which anime I choose to talk about and review. So I thought that I should have a listen to what the viewers want to read about the most. I have 5 animes in mind:

  • Toradora (the anime from video os the week 4)
  • Bakemonogatari (A supernatural and spastic/seisure like highschool romance)
  • Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien ( A tragic story that would realistically be replicated in the real world if the same thing occured)
  • A general summary and overview of the Hellsing Ultimate OVAs
  • A lengthy talk on the Death Note series (However will take at least a few days to write up properly)

So there you have it i’ll add in a poll and you can vote on which ever option you want and I will put in effort to write about it for the next anime talk. Anyway, till next time.


Higurashi Anime

February 7, 2012 Leave a comment

Hey Everyone
Today I’m here to talk about the anime Higurashi. Higurashi is a thriller type animeĀ  set in a remote village far away from any other sort of civilisation. The main character initially, is a teenage boy who moves into the village named Keiichi and starts the story from after one month from settling down in the village. It is here where we see the 4 other main characters all of which are female and go to the same school as Keiichi. These characters are Rena, Mion, Satoko and Rika. It is sort of hard to explain how this anime becomes a thriller/horror type show and even harder to explain what the hell happens after episode 4 of the first season however ill try my best.

Episode 1 really shows a slow moving start, and essentially trys to lull viewers into a false sense of security. However there is one instance in the episode where the composer has tried to foreshadow some of the events further into the series. Moving away from story line the characters overall are ones you grow to love, each one has their own unique personality and the variety of hair colours makes it hard to forget the colorful faces initially portrayed, and i say portrayed because things start to get ugly later on. And speaking of ugly I must make a comment on the artwork and animation as overall its ok but there are scenes where the animation is just schocking, there is one I can vividly recall as the eyes and mouth of the character looked like they were going to fall of the character’s face lol.

Overall Higurashi is one of the more well known horror anime around. It is unique in many ways including but not limited to the murder and especially the torture scenes. It has a strange way of portraying a story in the sense that it goes through a stage of parallel universe arcs however without giving much away that is fully explained in the 2nd season which in my opinion was the worse of the two. I must stress that this shouldn’t be watched by individuals with weak stomachs or prone to imitate anime, and especially children DO NOT WATCH THIS. You will have nightmares and junk so yeah do yourself a favour and wait till you’re a little older. In conclusion this anime probably wouldn’t be considered one of the must watch anime around only because of the nature of it and the animation used. However for those who are a big fan of horror and psychological confusion then this is definetly a show for you. Overall it consists of 50 episodes including both seasons and will probably take a large chunk of time to watch, so if you are gonna watch it start as quick as possible while you have the motivation. :)
