Hellooo~ I felt like making a random post on resent animus I’ve watched since my not posting as much, and think people should definitely check out! please bear with me with my explaining the series, I’ve never been too good with it *scratches head* I’ll try my best though~ Anyhoo… here we goo!
1) Rainbow: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin
I’ve literally just finished this 26 episode long series,, The story follows 7 boys struggling together to survive the brutality and humiliations of this disciplinary prison after committing serious crimes. Now bear in mind, this is a very brutal anime, and it mentions some touchy topics such as rape, suicide etc… but that only makes you severely appreciate the heartwarming scenes between these 7 teens a whole lot more, and you really feel the emotions for them with what they go through and how they survive. To sum it up, this is a masterpiece, and one of my favorites. The music is beautiful [please look up the sound track] ah ma heart >.< the characters and how they show their stories, and the story itself especially! It’s just brutally, emotionally, friendship’ly’? perfect.
If you don’t like yaoi, skip this, because yes, though not graphic, this movie is a yaoi. But it’s freaking perfect, and I don’t know about anybody else who has watched this, but I honestly loved the art style! It was different, and I found that refreshing. This movie is pretty much the perfect yaoi movie, the perfect amount of drama, not too much graphic, just a sweet story about two guys. The moments between them are too cute to bear, plus Hiroshi Kamiya voices Hikaru (the blond guy) it’s nothing to cry or cringe over (when I say cringe I mean its not overly cheesy) you can just sit back and enjoy the story these two boys share (with popcorn)
3) NHK ni Youkoso! (Welcome to the NHK)
I think the best way I can explain this 24 episode long series is that it hits you deep with reality in a somewhat comical way. The story follows this man named Satou, dealing with everyday life as a hikikomori (a person who avoids social contact with others) he later on takes up counseling from a girl named Misaki, who is also dealing with her own problems. I wont say too much, otherwise the whole twist in this series will be spoiled. Along his journey, Satou deals with everyday problems which I wont mention. And you’ll honestly be sitting and hoping that he’ll succeed and kinda face palming when he doesn’t due to the really simple mistakes he pulls bless him. It’s a pretty gripping plot, but I’ll also give a warning that, as I said, they do display reality in a comical way, but it does bring up touchy subjects such as suicide.
I love this anime. It’s definitely up there with my favorites! I won’t be surprised if alot of people already know about this, but I’m putting it here anyhoo. The story simply follows two friends who follow the path of becoming magaka’s. This windy journey is filled with rivals, drama, friendship, and hardcore courage. You learn alot about the mangaka life and how tough it is. But then you also laugh and tear up with these wonderful characters. It’s honestly just one of those series to sit back with the family or whoever, and enjoy. Theres not a character I don’t like-well… okay apart from one, theres not a character I don’t like, and the whole 3 amazing seasons just sends a buzz down my spine and makes me want to draw! I love it and definitely recommend it.
I think I’ll leave it with 4. I’m sorry for the poor explanations, I did try, just trust me when I say that they are definitely worth the watch. I was going to put Neon Genesis Evangelion as the 4th, but 1- I haven’t even finished watching it aha, and 2- I realized most of the anime’s I’ve wrote about here are all pretty deep, apart from Doukyuusei. So I thought I’d keep the last one light hearted ^_^ anyhoo, I hope you give these a watch if you haven’t already, and thank you for reading!
