0zero9days: Arakawa Under the Bridge (Anime)

Well, maybe there’s one thing. Maybe you could… love me.
Anime Title: 荒川アンダー ザ ブリッジ
Producer: SHAFT
Status: Airing
Synopsis: The story is about the strange courtship of a successful executive in life called Kou and a mysterious woman called Nino who lives under a bridge. It all begins when Kou almost drowns in a river but is saved by Nino. For saving his life, Kou fulfills Nino’s desire to have a boyfriend. Thus, Kou becomes her boyfriend, but has to live with her under the bridge… (via MAL)

I seriously thought this is drama. So, I was quite disappointed when I read that it’s comedy. After I watched it though, it was actually really funny and entertaining. I know weirdness isn’t new in the Anime world but the type of weirdness here isn’t something you can get tired of easily. It’s a really good anime. But I think it’s too fast…

As for the characters… I love the weird girl. She’s pretty and she’s really weird. Haha. And the guy with all his super exaggerated expressions is really funny.

Over all the whole anime is funny. It’s a good start. Definitely watching it until the end! Update this after the 5th ep.

0zero8days: Angel Beats! (Anime)

Welcome to the “Like-hell-I’m-dead Battlefront”!

Anime Title: エンジェルビーツ
Producer: Aniplex
Status: Airing
Synopsis: In a world after death, angels fight for their fate and their future. Yuri, the leader of the Shinda Sekai Sensen, rebels against the god who destined her to have an unreasonable life. On the otherhand, Tenshi, the chairperson of the student council for the world after death, battles against the SSS members. SSS members utilize armed weaponry to battle it out against the angels harnessing supernatural powers. (via Anime News Network)

I saw a trailer in a site called Metanorn and it looked really cool. So anyway, I decided to download it after I saw the review. At first, it didn’t look anything new. The story IS original and that’s a plus point. But, it was nonsense at first really. Stealing lunch meal tickets? By singing in the stage?! But yeah, there’s a lot of nonsense but it’s unpredictable and really interesting.

I think I was talking, *ahem* typing, in circles but what I want to say is, I’m definitely watching it again. The characters are pretty cliche but I think there’s more to them. Yuki is really like Haruhi from MHZ. Her hair, her face and even her actions! They’re like twins or something. Not a minus point though. And as for Angel, she’s very very interesting. I wonder what the twist will be?

I’ll update this after I watch the 5th ep.

0zero7days: Nightmare of the Funeral March (Manga)

Nightmare of the Funeral March

Good day. Welcome to Aries. This shop sells antiques and knickknacks. It seems you’ve found what you’re looking for…

Manga Title: Nightmare of the Funeral March / Sousoukyoku Naitomea/ 葬送曲ナイトメア
Manga-ka: Aki Arata (Art and Story)
Status: Completed (Not completely scanlated) Two Vol.
Synopsis: The owner of Aries, a strange antique shop, is Baku, a mysterious boy. The costs for the mysterious items there are the guests’ nightmares. This is a story of Aries, a shop where only people drown in their dreams can enter… (via Aerandria Scans)

What attracted me is the title. Kinda like the movie “Death in a Funeral,” I haven’t watched it but the title is really attention grabbing. Hmm…. so basically it’s about this mysterious kid who’s a conductor of a colony (or whatever you call it) of an insect (of what, I have no idea) and something happened to him that caused him to have 3 or 4(?) other persona. The chapters features different people and by more than 5 chapters, the story had developed quite nicely. This manga has a really good art and an addictive story.

Scarlet Carnival is also scanlating this one and there’s no new updates yet. I’ll be updating this post after I get updates.

So far, it’s been great and it receives  1/2.

0zero6days: Are you Alice? (Manga)

Are you Alice?

If you give me a permanent reason to exist then I’ll be Alice… If that’s no good, then I’ll blow my brains out right now.
Manga Title: Are you Alice? / 汝名艾丽斯
Manga-ka: Katagiri Ikumi (Art) / Ninomiya Ai (Story)
Status: Publishing from 2009
Synopsis: After throwing away his dreams a boy wanders into “Wonderland” and he holds the name of “Alice” which is the primary requirement in the “Game to kill the White Rabbit”. In a crazy story where common sense does not apply and everything is bound by the rules of the game and the orders of the Queen of Hearts, Alice decides to take the gun in his hand. (via mangaupdates)

Hmm… so review. So far I only read three chapters. Not that it isn’t good. It’s just that I don’t have access to it except by internet and well, no updates yet.

So, I never really knew the real story of Alice in Wonderland. I vaguely knew about Alice being in Wonderland, meeting the weird cat, being in a tea party with the Mad Hatter and meeting the Queen of hearts and her cards… and that’s it. I also knew she shrank, by the way. Having said all that, comparing this manga to the real story is not really possible to do.

But reading the manga, I’m really really excited and curious about the characters and the development of the story. It seems like the Queen and his loyal servant, the Mad Hatter can’t really be trusted… and the new Alice seems to be a psycho who killed a lot… and he’s emo too. Seriously. But anyway, the story’s development is quite interesting. With the flow of the story a few more chapters and a minimum of 2-3 volumes will be enough and just right. Well, I might be wrong if there’s more twist.

Oh, for the art, well, it’s just gorgeous! I love it and I’m planning on reading one of the artist’s work: Zanbara!

As for now, this manga has the rating of   out of 5. The art and the story are just amazing and I’ll be sure to look out for updates!
Oh, I forgot! Here’s the link to Scarlet Carnival for updates and download links!

0zero4days: Gerard and Jacques

This manga was recommended by a trusted friend so I decided to try it out. At first I wasn’t all that interested. I mean, a historical manga! Who’d want to read that? But yeah, anyway, it was actually good. I love the story and the art is actually appealing. It has a plot and not like some manga with lots of h things.

So yeah, read it. It’s worth your time and it’s really good.

0zero3days: Silence

It’s night time… I’m very very sleepy when my mother asked me to massage her and here I am, reading BL manga. This 3rd entry for the 3sixty5days of manga, anime and live actions is possibly one of the best manga I ever read. Every click of my mouse (I seriously hope you know that I’m talking about the mouse used in computers. anyway…) literally makes my heart twist. It’s like you can feel the emotions and it just synchronize with you and truthfully, it’s weird.

So, before going to the review, I’ll give some info about the manga.

Title: Silence

Mangaka: Azuma Takamiya

Read Online: Mangafox

Status: On hold with 7 Chapters.

Before this is what’s written in this post:

How can you effin’ do this to me? I was so excited with everything and then suddenly I read that it’s on hold?! Why?!

Whatever. Seriously.

Okay, I might as well give a review. This manga is just great. The story, the art… I won’t give spoilers or whatever but every turning of the page is painful for me. My heart literally twists every page. I mean, it’s so heart breaking…

The characters just seem so alive to me. Like, they’re in front of me and it’s happening at that moment, like you can feel what they feel. I’m so not good with reviews but I make up for it with my scores and comments and well…

READ IT. YOU WON’T BE DISAPPOINTED. As for the score, maybe a 9.

Just read it. It’s good.

But I saw a comment from my Only the Ring Finger Knows entry and I just know, I should do justice to the manga. So, here’s a more substantial review:

At first, I was thinking that it’s gonna be boring and worthless. I just had to read it because I downloaded it. But as I began to read it, I was enchanted by the art and the feeling you get from reading it. As I said, every page, I have to muster my courage and click the mouse. My heart, if only possible, might actually stop beating with every scene. I know this might sound bogus and fake to you but I feel all this.

The flow of the story is simple and easy to understand. It focus only on the two characters and from only 7 chapters you can already relate to them.

I urge you to read it. It’s just… one of the best, really.

3sixty5days of anime, manga and what? Live actions?!

Haha. I feel like I’m trying to do something that I know, I can’t do. But what the hell, right? Try things. Do stuff. SO anyway, I’ve been trying to do lots of remodeling and redoing my online accounts and I remembered this thing I saw in one other blog with 365 something… then I thought, how about I post something for 365 days, each different? Well, that would be great. I thought. So, I decided to give it a try. Anyway, wish me luck! I need it.
