Taking a break from wiki. I had a full day at Church while I spent the evening doing wiki moderation, mostly Manhwa and Hentai. Trying to put some industry news in Anime Vice. PM me if you need me.

Hello everyone and welcome to the Karneval review. This is promoting the Karneval Discussion thread that is located at this hub thread: Community Directory: Discussion Threads, Lists, Projects & More! Please check that out.

After my first impressions of Karneval, it's an interesting and fun series to watch weekly. Here is the synopsis for the series.

Genre: Supernatural, Action, Sci-Fi,

Plot: Armed with only an abandoned bracelet as a clue, Nai searches for someone dear to him. After a run in with a pick-pocket named Gareki, the two find themselves involved in a government set-up that leaves them wanted criminals. Desperate and on-the-run, Nai and Gareki turn to the country’s most powerful defense organization--“Circus”--for help.

To me, the action and comedy in this show is what reels me in.

Verdict

Good

Gareki's view of Nai is just adorable
Gareki's view of Nai is just adorable

After a bit of introduction of the characters, it's the start of a beautiful relationship between Nai and Gareki. The show is driven on Nai - who is searching for Karoku. In episode 2, the Circus organization is being revealed. Yogi is an appealing and funny character who serves somewhat of a foil to Hirato - who is a serious man focused on his goals. Circus's purpose is to eradicate monsters that are called Varuga. Nai's origins are slowly being revealed in episodes 3 and 4. It turns out he is not a human being, but an animal called a Niji. It's pretty surprising. It makes more questions in the series. Who created Nai and who is Karoku?

Gareki's past is revealed in episode 5. After finding out who killed Gareki's adopted mother that leads to the death of Yotaka, Gareki and Tsubame gain closure. Episode 7 serves as a comic relief. It's pretty enjoyable and gives some spotlight to minor characters such as Iva, Kiichi, and Jiki. With episode 8, Yogi has a psychotic alter ego. It's quite a contrast to his innocent, cheery self.

Bad

Gareki's story wasn't that emotional
Gareki's story wasn't that emotional

It's might be me, but I personally didn't feel much sympathy for Gareki and Tsubame's story. I did find Tsubame's scene touching where she found out that Gareki had been paying for her grandpa's operation touching.

Overall, this series is worth watching if you're into supernatural series filled with pretty boys.

Hello everyone and welcome to the Henneko weekly review! I'm Takashichea, a wiki editor. I'm promoting the Hentai Prince and the Stony Cat Discussion thread that Daniel and I created at the Community Directory: Discussion Threads, Lists, Projects & More! hub.

Be sure to check out that.

To be honest, I'm embarrassed to write about Henneko, but I'm doing to show you guys and gals one of the weirdest fan service anime series this season. I love and hate Henneko at the same time. Yes, it's a cute and funny show, but watching it makes me feel like a pedobear. I would love it watch here at Anime Vice with you guys and gals at 's Anime Vice Chat!!!. It's better to watch a fan service show with company. Trust me on this.

Here is the synopsis:

It is about a second year high school boy named Yoto Yokodera who is always thinking about sex. However, no one seems to acknowledge that he is a pervert. One day, he visits a cat statue that he heard can grant wishes. He prays that he can express dirty things at any time. Then, he meets a girl named Tsukiko Tsutsukakushi who also made her wish.

I'm going to make this review short since I don't have much time. Forgive, I'm going to rushed through this.

Episode 1

Good

  • It's a cute series for those who love the character design in the show. It's faithful to the light novel designs. It screams Moe.
  • Depends on your preferences, you got Tsukiko, a quiet yet adorable girl, while you got Azusa, a tsundere yet cute girl. You might like Tsukiko or Azusa. It's the comedic interactions between Yoto, the perverted prince, and these two heroines.
  • Oh, I forgot Tsukushi, the steel king. If you're into femdom and big boobs, you'll love her.

Episode 2

Good

  • For fans of Azusa Azuki, you'll love this episode. She comes in a puppy maid cafe cosplay and a brides gown.
  • Yoto's strategy of getting Azusa Azuki to give up her facade is weird since he stalks her. Their little date scene was great.

Weird

  • Azusa Azuki might hate Yoto, but you can tell she likes him.

Episode 3

Good

  • The episode reveals more about Azusa and Tsukiko.
  • Tsukiko's dream is to be a kindergarten teacher while Azusa has the Ojou-sama facade because she is a shy person deep inside.

So far, Henneko is a character driven anime series. The objective so far is to find Tsukiko's facade. Yoto and Azusa have reach some closure.

Episode 4 - 6

Since I'm all out of time, I'm going to combine everything. Episodes 4, 5, and 6 just builds up on Tsukushi. You can see Tsukushi and Tsukiko have some issues. While Tsukiko believes her older sister is distancing herself, Tsukushi still loves her younger sister. She just couldn't express her feelings. One of funny moments in these last few episodes was that Tsukushi wanted to go to Michigan because gay marriage is allowed. When Tsukushi says that she wants to marry her younger sister, Tsukiko reminds her that they are siblings. Meanwhile, Yoto finds out his home has disappeared and relocated in Tsukiko's shack near her home.

Fan service gets absurd in this episode. You got a shower scene where Yoto flashes his jewels at the poor sisters. Then, Yoto gets to see Tsukiko naked twice so far. Funny moments arise when Tsukushi still believes Yoto's lies about having a twin brother and the time when Azusa makes a bad wish. For fans of Azusa and Tsukushi, you will enjoy this episode.

I have problems posting GIFs to show you how absurd these fan service are.

In the end, this show is for fans who can tolerate fan service and love cute characters. It's not for everyone especially the young 'uns.

Hello everyone and welcome to the weekly Fairy Tail manga! I'm promoting the Fairy Tail Discussion (Manga) as well. All comments are welcome here or over at the discussion threads that Daniel and I create.

With the weekly reports I've done in the past, I always promote Anime Vice and its wiki pages, my teammates, and other projects.

Note: I might butcher the new characters' names such as Zirconis and the other dragons due to the fans' translations.

Plot

Ch. 331

As Wendy and Mirajane take on Zirconis, naked Lucy gets some "alone time" with Natsu. After Lucy and Natsu's comedic moment, Natsu gets an idea while Lucy finds a journal left by her future counterpart. Meanwhile, Jellal steps in to protect Erza Scarlet. Then, Millianna arrives. Knowing Millianna, there is going to be some family reunion going on next time.

Ch. 332

Natsu takes on the Atlas Flame Dragon, and he urges Laxus and his Raijinshuu to help out Wendy. While the bad Rogue marvels over the destruction, Natsu and his new buddy, Atlas Flame, take on Rogue.

Verdict

Good

Natsu and Lucy's Funny Moment
Natsu and Lucy's Funny Moment
  • Looking forward to Wendy and Mirajane's tag team battle with Zirconis. It's awesome to see how Wendy has grown up since her debut in the NIrvana arc.
  • For Natsu X Lucy fans, you'll love chapter 331. Lots of fan service - Happy and Virgo are always teasing the two. It's a loveable scene.
  • Will we get closure on Jellal, Erza, and Millianna? Soon, Fairy Tail has magical way of fixing things. Kagura and Erza made up to a certain extent.
  • Don't estimate the power of Nakama: It is amusing to see Natsu befriend an enemy dragon after the two share how they knew Igneel.

Bad

  • Not much happened. Fairy Tail is a manga, and its story is wacky. You can't take it seriously. For fans who want some action, these two chapters are not for you.

Overall, these past two chapters are zany and fun to read. Don't expect any serious movement in the plot. It's Hiro Mashima's way of entertaining the fans.

Please check out the #Anime Vice Discussion Threads for more discussion threads and check out the Community Spotlight. Fairy Tail wiki editing is a bit slow since I'm working on the new spring 2013 shows and its wiki projects with my teammates.

Thank you for reading!
