I came across some info about this show via RocketNews24 about a comedy series about a quintet of Magical Guys. Yes, we got a Magical Girl parody show where the mains are all male. The premise did get some controversy involving target audiences in some sites, including AnimeNewsNetwork, but I thought it would end up being very fun despite being a 23-year old male. Turns out after two episodes...
Disclaimer: This will mildly spoil the episodes. Please watch the episodes in question starting with the first one via Crunchyroll.com.
“Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE!” is about an sudden encounter by a strange animal at the school that warns five guys from a school club that's literally just a hangout about an evil force that's turning people that have lost their resolve or are in despair and turn them into monsters that plan to destroy or transform all of humanity. They end up being bound by a force that transforms the quintet into Magical Guys to take care of these monsters and restore the balance with the enhanced power of “Love”. Yes, you read that right. There's also a rival gang that's causing the trouble around the school.
I came in thinking that it won't be as funny, but I was relieved after seeing that the first two episodes were hilarious. The introductions to both groups were handled well and there were a lot of funny moments already. There are also references to the Sailor Moon and Pretty Cure franchises in terms of the character designs and some of their actions. Don't worry about having to see a bunch of Magical Girl shows before this since the show happens to be casual-friendly instead of being heavily referenced.
I hope this show ends up being one of the best comedy shows I've seen as this progresses. I know that's going a bit far since 2015 just started, but it's that fun to me.
First of all, Hello. It's been literally too long since I first covered an episode of a series like this. WAY too long. I hope to do more of these blogs onwards. Let's get my extended response started.
Disclaimer: First off, this will mildly spoil the episode. Please watch the episode in question (can be legally watched via FUNimation's site) before reading this and leave your thoughts here if you have the time and check out the Tokyo Ghoul Discussion to talk about the show and how it's going so far. One thing that I will point out that this episode's uncensored. Yes, the hype is too real. (blushes)
Tokyo Ghoul Root A (or Tokyo Ghoul 2 in some areas) starts where season 1 leaves off: the continuous of the Aogiri Tree battle after Kaneki's drastic change. Now he's completely serious and isn't taking anything anymore. He aids part of the battle out of nowhere when Touka was a second from being killed while looking for answers about Aogiri Tree, and we got to see more rivaling ghouls, including some immensely strong ones. It was noted that Amon also has a bit of development as well here, even though it's a small piece of it. After the battle, a shocking decision was made that could be reckless, but is also interesting at the same time.
I was amazed at pretty much everything that happened, especially on Kaneki and his new path and I'm anticipating on what will be done from here onwards. A bit of a side note, I remember being on Volume 3 of the Tokyo Ghoul manga when college kicked me hard in the nuts, so this is still either a blind run to me, which I don't mind doing. Then again, it might be its own story instead of continuing from the manga. Either way, I hope the show ends up becoming really good from here onwards.
What I thought was going on during this OP sequence right here. XD (Don't panic! It's a song and lyrics YouTube video, but it's NSFW due to language. I also apologise if that made you feel old considering that it was released in the early 2000's. XD)
Well, considering how Season 2 ended up being my guilty pleasure show of last Winter, this was actually a shocking stroke of luck, but that's just me.
"The official website for the anime of Yoshiki Usa and Tomoko Fujinoki's Wooser no Sono Higurashi (Wooser's Hand-to-Mouth Life) manga announced on Christmas Eve that production on a third season has been green-lit. The official Twitter account stated that the third season will premiere in 2015 and that more details will be announced at a later date."
For those that I pulled into this series, It looks like we're in for another one sometime in 2015...
November 30, 2014. This marks my 5 year here at Anime Vice. I remember that I was still not used to forums back then until I got used to this place. I was only a wiki user until a few topics decided to pique my interest and I've been used to some other fourms alongside this one ever since. This one ended up being one of my most frequent due to the community growing on me and it was also one of the wiki sections that I actually managed to frequent along with a few others that I can remember. I did a lot of stuff to help with the site as well alongside some other users. I thank you all for being one of the main reasons to have me reach this far.
Some users that I remember to thank as well. I couldn't state my full reasons for some of you due to this taking part of the time for doing homework, but I still thank you guys nonetheless:
Here's to many more years of hanging out together!
Hello followers! An Absolute Destiny Whatever episode is pending next week after my classes are over with. However, I will be unable to attend Anime Weekend Atlanta due to a huge financial slump me and my parents got in about a month ago. It sucks all kinds since I planned to meet an fellow Anime Vice member outside the site, but it wasn't possible with the slump since I normally prepare in advance.
Wooser's Hand-to-Mouth Life project is still on! I will resume full work on it starting Thursday. A side project will arrive soon as well and it involves one of the shows that look "embarrassing" to others, but never embarrassed me in the case of it being one of my favorite anime series. That show is Princess Tutu.
I'm also preparing for the Monster Girl Tournament. Chances are, I will have a partner on this since it's literally my first time working on this type of voting format. It will also break the tie that the site had last year between two species.
That's pretty much it on this update. Thanks for reading!
