A RECOMMENDATION

I have come here to recommend a TV show that recently got me to fall in another fan-base… lmao, I’m so digging this thing that I’m planning to get myself involved in anything they throw at us! So let me introduce you to the thing.

THUNDERBOLT FANTASY

Starting with the bad-ass name, it’s a piece of art… I tell you… battles are amazing, the movements are incredible, maybe the lack of facial emotion is something that bothered me at first, but heck… it became so natural after 2 or 3 episodes… I started to imagine their expressions just by seeing the characters movements and voice acting.

Oh… you might be confused right now if you haven’t seen it yet? Lemme explain why I put it that way.

IT’S A PUPPETS SHOW

Just look at the smooth movements, the precision, the timing… 

I can’t even begin to explain how exquisite the show is.

It has everything I look in anime…

Just keep reading~ it contains a few spoilers and what not… I’ll try to keep it down so not much is said… but you were warned!

Cool battle moves with good camera angles

Good looking character’s that can kick your ass anytime. The woman here is a Demon that specializes in Necromancy. Plus Sayaka Ohara is the voice actress <3

Well developed Protagonist, with character development well done and fit for the story plot and the historic ambient. Meet Tanhi (My new waifu lol) She ain’t any princess in distress, she can kick yo ass and be gorgeous at it.

Just look at her go, she swings that sword just as perfect as any of the male characters.

The show has lots of ANGST and PLOT TWISTS… it’s just the kind of deal I love in my shows… leaves me uncertain to everything until the very end. It’s the first time I had such a hard time predicting what would happen the next episode.

For being a tv show to attempts to do everything modern action movies and anime do with just puppets it has a lot more action, story development and production effects than any of the modern media.

^^^^^thi is how they handle the puppets^^^^^Pretty cool ain’t it?

Anyways… this show was written by the dude that was behind of the visual novel Saya no Uta and the anime’s Psycho-Pass and Fate/Zero (Gen Urobuchi). Music scores were in charge of Hiroyuki Sawano (Shingeki no Kyojin, Ao no Exorcist, Kill la Kill, Owari no Seraph, Nanatsu no Taizai, etc) OST IS GOLD!!!

OTHER INTERESTING NOTES

It’s a collaboration between Japanese companies Nitroplus and Good Smile Company along with Taiwanese puppet production company Pili International Multimedia.

The show is currently available in 3 languages: Taiwanese, Mandarin Chinese and Japanese.

It’s also being adapted into a manga written by Gen Urobuchi and illustrated by Yui Sakuma.

All main seiyuus are pretty well known: 
· Sayaka Ohara (Yuuko Ichihara / Layla Hamilton)
· Kousuke Toriumi (Kiba Inuzuka / Szayel Aporro / Junpei Iori)
· Junichi Suwabe (Fuma Monou / Archer / Grimmjow Jeagerjaques / Undertaker)
· Mai Nakahara (May Wong / Kurenai Maria / Juvia Lockser)

Anyways… if you’d like, please give it a chance! I assure you the time is worth it! Just be sure to give it a shot until the end =) as the story progresses it’s get more interesting and entertaining!
