Daily Lives of High School Boys

Also known as Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou, or Danshiko, for short.

Daily Lives of High School Boys is about… the daily lives of high school boys. A slice of life anime about high school boys, instead of girls, for once.

The title says it all. I need not explain more, do I? – Girls, pranks, school, boredom, and more girls… It’s just another normal day for the boys. If you’re a fan of slice of life comedies (or even high school boys), then this series is for you.

I mean, what could possibly be more interesting than the daily lives of high school boys? 😉

Durarara!!

I rarely watch shows with suspense, mystery, supernatural and all that yada-yada, but when someone asks me what my favourite suspense show is, the first show that comes to my mind is Durarara!!.

It wasn’t a show that I liked from the start. Yes, it had pretty neat art, but I hardly watched these kind of ~deep~ shows so I was really confused at the start. Yes, I immerse myself in sparkling shojos and whatnot, so this wasn’t a show I’d go for. However, Durarara!! received overwhelmingly good reviews so I decided to give it a shot. And there weren’t any regrets. 😀 In fact, I’m really happy I didn’t ever put it down.

If you like suspense, action or supernatural themed shows, you should definitely give Durarara!! a go. The characters are lovable, the storyline is filled with lots of surprises, and the action is awesome. All of that with a tinge of modern reality.

Pandora Hearts

For some reason, my previous Pandora Hearts post had an entire chunk of text and pictures missing… So I’m publishing the complete Pandora Hearts post here. Sorry for any inconvenience and hope you enjoy my post! 🙂

Do you like fantasy or mystery animes? Especially one with twists? How about something that keeps you in suspense? All of this sprinkled with humour and of course, some butt-kicking action?

Then Pandora Heart’s for you.

I’m finally doing a review on my all-time favourite anime! Well, I have to admit that I have quite a few favourites, because like most people I just can’t exactly make up my mind. It’s quite difficult to choose an all-time favourite anime. I truly admire people who can do that. However, I can safely say that Pandora Hearts is my favourite fantasy anime. :D

Magic Knight Rayearth

Many people do ask me what my very first anime was. Well, here’s my answer: Magic Knight Rayearth. I watched it a really long time ago when I was young, and I was absolutely crazy about it. I enjoyed role-playing as the Magic Knights with my friends as we fight imaginary monsters (aka the air around us). Ah, the good ol’ times. Recently, I watched it again to relive my childhood times. Despite it being a really old anime, I enjoyed it all the same.

Magic Knight Rayearth follows 3 very different girls – Hikaru, Umi and Fuu, who are suddenly given the titles of the Legendary Magic Knights, and are tasked with the important responsibility of saving a whole new universe which they have never heard of! A second ago, they were just your everyday ordinary school girls on a field trip to the Tokyo Tower. The very next second, they’re being thrown through the sky into Cephiro, a whole new universe, where they are 3 Legendary Magic Knights on a quest to save Cephiro!

Neo Angelique Abyss

We love reverse harem (though we often get jealous of the female character). So, how about a group of guys who know how to kick butt? And all this set in an alternate fantasy world?

Neo Angelique Abyss follows Angelique as she embarks on her adventure with her own harem in an alternate world called Arcadia, where Thanatos endanger the people. These monsters can be defeated by rare Purifiers, who happen to be all good-looking guys (you guessed it). One day, Angelique realises she has a special power buried deep inside of her… A power foretold in legends, a power that can exterminate these Thanatos!

Princess Princess

Don’t be deceived. The 3 beautiful ladies in front of you now are actually three boys from an all-boys school that are being made to dress as girls. They are referred to as “Princesses”.

Wait, what? Why? In an all boys school, there aren’t any females to bring fun or motivate the boys in the school. Left, right, up, down- Males are everywhere! They are surrounded by nothing but their own kind. To counter this, why not recruit pretty boys to dress up as females to spice up the lives of the deprived schoolboys?

Peach Girl

Your usual love triangle! I’m not a big fan of love triangles, especially if the heroine can’t make up her mind between the two boys. Poor boys! Peach Girl is actually one of the most intense love triangles I’ve ever encountered. This series has really got me quite worked up due to its story line, but I don’t know if that’s a good thing or bad thing. I’ll save my thoughts for the last part! 🙂

Peach Girl follows a high school girl named Momo, who is really tan and has bleached hair due to constant exposure to chlorinated pools. People think she’s ganguro, but she’s actually just an innocent little girl in the swim team who’s secretly in love with her classmate, Toji, for many years. Unfortunately for Momo, she has a “friend”, Sae, that attempts to copy or steal everything Momo has, which of course, includes Toji. And soon a third party, Kairi, joins in this complicated love struggle. It’s your usual drama: a love triangle with the addition of an entertainingly jealous female villain.

You heard it too, didn’t you?

Well uh, because I’ve just completed my Samurai Deeper Kyo review, I’ve decided to share a funny screenshot of a certain Yahoo! Answers I’ve encountered while researching on Samurai Deeper Kyo.

I don’t know if the person asking the question meant it in the way that Kyo said it, or maybe it was just a really big coincidence, but, oh, Kyo, imagine if your opponent said that to you while in a confrontation. -gulps-

Samurai Deeper Kyo

Have a samurai fetish? Don’t worry, me too.

Samurai Deeper Kyo follows Demon Eyes Kyo, one of the most feared legendary samurai in the world, and the quest for his true body, while he actually resides in Mibu Kyoshiro’s body. Along the way, he meets friends and travelers that accompany him in his adventure as he defeats rivals opposing his way. We also learn more about both Kyo and Kyoshiro’s clashing personalities as well as the relationships between the characters as the story unfolds.

Skip Beat!

Yes, Skip Beat! is about showbiz, but our heroine, Kyoko, is climbing up the showbiz ladder for revenge. Wait, revenge?!

Kyoko has been supporting her childhood friend, Shotaro, wholeheartedly all this while, sacrificing herself just for her one and only Sho. Sho is pursuing a career in music and is currently ranked seventh most popular male celebrity of Japan. However, everything changes when Kyoko overhears a conversation between Sho and his manager, where Sho insults Kyoko, saying that he only keeps her for her usefulness in housekeeping matters. Further fueled by Sho flirting with the manager, Kyoko vows vengeance, so Sho teasingly challenges her to overtake him in showbiz.

And that’s exactly what Kyoko sought out to do. She makes new friends (and maybe even one that is more than a friend) throughout her new career and on the way, slowly pushes away the vengeful feelings that overwhelmed her at the beginning. Will she ever learn to love again?
