otakunick's reto reviews (love hina)

hey guys I rely didn't feel like doing a review for one of the new shows this week so today Im diving into my massive back log of anime I have watched to review a older show you know the rules only anime 10 years or older for my retro reviews so this week its love hina a anime based off of ken Akamatsu's best selling manga of the same name ken Akamatsu is probly best know for this work or his negima manga witch also had gotten a anime but what people may not know is that akamatsu got his start drawing hentai but that was so long ago its nearly impassabl to find any of it even I haven't been able to find even a name to type don hear now if thars one word that can discrip most of his work it would be herem just about all of his long ruining mangas are herem mangas and love hina just may be his most well known one but your not hear to hear me talk about the creator you want to know about the show it self

the story fallows Keitaro Urashima who promised a girl when he was young that they would meet up again at Tokyo University in the future. Sadly, in the National Practice Exam, Keitaro ranked 27th from the bottom. Knowing his grandmother owned a hotel, Keitaro intended to stay there while continuing his studies for Tokyo U, only to find out the hotel had long been transformed into an all-girls dormitory. Through an odd twist of fate, Keitaro eventually became the manager of the dorm, beginning his life of living with 5 other girls. I know its rely just a plain old herem well your right the story is just a arcatipacol herem but thats what akamatsu whants you to think yes its still in the herem catagory in the sence that the lead is saroundid by many girls but not all whant to get with him only 3 out of the 5 girls do and for vareus resons that go deper then oh his the lead I want to be with him now but thare is a clear cut winer at the end and een thow Im not going to say who that is anyone whos read even one chapter of the manga or watched one ep of the sho can figer it out(he I sed it was difrent from most heram I didint say it was great)

no then the art well the show cam out in 2000 when hand drawn anime was on the way out and CG anime was starting to take over Id would like to say that thy whent with hand draw witch at the time was better but sadly this was one of the erly 2000 CG anime meening it looked pretty bad atlest compared to todays anime but it was watchable

as for the sound track once agen it was the 2000s thar is nothing worth wile in the OST the op gives me a head ach and well over all the ladt 12 years havent been kind

over all I would like to say go and watch this as when i fist watched it i liked it but I rely cant the anime of love hina is rely not worth the time now yea the charters are nice but the scrip is crap thare are way to many filer Eps and almost no progress mad between the leeds if you whant the story of love hina go read the manga it is fare better the last 12 years have rely been hard on this anime

otakunicks thoughts on black rock shooter

hey guys its me otakunick again and just like I sed when the OVA came out we have gotten a black rock shooter TV series as well tho only 8 EPs long its shaping up to be pretty good it makes it point alot clearer then the OVA that the world that black rock shooter fights it is a symbolic one to give a visual representation of whats going on in the emotional states of the cast witch was sum thing I gessed at back when the ova came out but has now been confirmed as the truth so without feather adu lets get right into the review

It isn't the world you know. There wanders a girl with jet-black hair, ebony clothes, and a strikingly blue, glowing eye. Her name is Black Rock Shooter. With a huge cannon in hand, she throws herself into a fierce battle...

Meanwhile, in another world, middle-school student Mato Kuroi is drawn to Yomi Takanashi, her classmate with an unusual family name. Mato does her best to talk to Yomi, who just won't open up. Yu Koutari mocks her best friend Mato's efforts but at the same time, supports her. Mato also finds herself surrounded by other colorful characters at school, like the eccentric school counselor, Saya Irino, and the hot-blooded captain of her club Arata Kohata.

Then, one day, the window of opportunity opens. After Mato sees that Yomi has her favorite picture book, "Li'l Birds At Play", they strike up a conversation and Mato is invited to come over to Yomi's house. There, they gradually break the ice, until a girl in a wheelchair appears. This is Yomi's best friend, Kagari Izuriha...

Two worlds. Mato and Black Rock Shooter. This is the story of their "pain".
pretty interesting set up huh the anime is not going to be the best in the world in fact at the moment the story telling is pretty meh and the scripted not the best but at lest the over arking plot has sum thing to it

as for the art well its not as good as the ovas but since they have to make more then one EP i can understand the lack in detail when compared tho thats not saying its bad art is acholy pretty good but I do need to say you mite find yourself looking bast the simplified charter models to the vibrant back grounds becuase it looks like thy spent more time making the back drops then the achuwell charters them self

now to what all you real BRS fans whant to know yes the OP is the black rock shooter song and yes its song by hatsumi miku tho it sounds like thy have made miku a little mor humen sounding witch i like aside from that the OST isint to bad a bit underwhelming but still works for BGMs atlest

so over all would I sagest watching this well lets just say yea I would its not the best show in the world but like last weeks entry you cud rely do lot worst things with your free time and I alredy now all BRS fans and miku fans will be watching this regardless

otakunicks thoughts on inu X boku SS

hey guys its me otakunick as alwas hear to give you a first thoughts one of this seasons new anime this weeks its inu X boku SS and let me just say I am liking this one grated its not going to make any of my top tens but its defanetly a show worht watching atlest once

the story fallows The Shirakiin house's(a powerful family in the story) daughter, Shirakiin Ririchiyo, who has a complex about being unable to live independently and unprotected, feels the need to move out and live on her own under the condition of residing in the mansion named "Ayakashi Kan." In this mansion, only those who have cleared a very strict examination could reside in it, and for each resident, they are accompanied with one agent of the Secret Service (S.S.). Although Riricho has rejected the company of the S.S., while residing in the mansion she finds out that the agent dedicated to protecting her is actually the Fox Spirit whom she previously rescued(tho has no memory of doing so). now then the story is probably not going to draw you in it shore as hell did'int for me the thing that drew me in was the charters and let me say Im liking the dynamic the leads have yes Ririchiyo falls under the clarification of stundere but to keep things fresh shes all was going on in her head not to be mean to people and when shes is she always the first to kick herself in the but for it and Miketsukami, Soushi makes a interesting male lead to say the least hes a over the top type of guy who will bend over backwords and bark like a dog if Ririchiyo told him to thats how gun how hi is about serving her and let me just say I have not seen black sparkles used this well since soma from working

now with story out of the way lets get to the art i think its pretty good not the best the back grounds are a bit plain but being as its set in a city I can look that over and i have to say I do like the charter designs that Iizuka, Haruko came up with reminds me alot of Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakamatachi so to sum it up okay back drops with good charter design

now the music is whare they drop the ball dont get me wrong I absalutly love the OP but the rest of the sound track is bland witch is saprising as Nakagawa, Koutarou was in charge of the sound track and he ushaly makes good stuff but I guess everyone has that missteps

so over all Im giving this a pass its not a must watch but if you got sum free time and you whant a funny and heart waring show to fill sum time thare are worst shows to do it with
