Hello everyone! Today, I'm promoting Karneval, one of the spring 2013 anime series, by sharing my first impressions.

I tried the show because of its trailer (Spring 2013 Trailer: Karneval) and its colorful poster art. I'm still looking for anime series outside of my preference zone: comedy and shonen. I figured another Josei theme show after trying Natsuyuki Rendezvous series wouldn't hurt me.

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.

You can watch Karneval legally at FUNimation or HULU.

Characters

Here is a brief overview of the characters along with my first impressions of them.

Nai
Nai is a mysterious boy whose age is unknown.

I say Nai is about 14 years old. When I see Nai, he reminds me of Yashiro Isana from K. Though, I was surprised that he is voiced by Hiro Shimono, the man who voices Sasuke Tsubaki.
Gareki
Gareki is a 15 years old thief.

Even though he does things for his own benefit, he is a nice guy deep inside.
Hirato
Hirato is 27 years old and the Second Ship's Captain.

He takes the strict captain role.
Tsukumo
Tsukumo is 16 years old one of Circus Second Ship's fighters.

She is quiet but tough as nails. I like her.
Yogi
Yogi is 21 years old and is one of the Circus Second Ship's fighters.

When I first saw the guy, he was wearing a cat suit, Nyanperowna. I enjoyed Yogi in how he interacts with everyone. He eases the tense in the show.

First Impressions

The first episode showcased something unexpected. I was expecting the colorful things, but I watch a grisly scene of a monster chowing down a guy in the beginning. Then, it shifts to a train scene where Nai uses his special ability to find the bombs. The first episode hook me in because I wanted to find out more about Nai and this person, Karoku, whom Nai searches for. The cute, colorful, and comedic scenes shines in episode 2 and 3 with Yogi. This is when I started to enjoy Karneval and continue to watch the series.

Audience

It's for everyone who enjoys a bit of supernaturaI and mystery show along with some exciting action pieces. It looks like an innocent Josei show, but it could get dark a bit. I recommended the anime series to UsaChanMan - who loved it.

Please check out the Karneval Discussion that is located in the Community Directory: Discussion Threads, Lists, Projects & More! on the forum page. I hope to see you guys and gals over there.

Welcome everyone, today I'm going to promote The Severing Crime Edge anime series. It's a new spring 2013 show, and we have a lovely discussion thread located in the Community Directory board. I hope to see you guys and gals over there.

Plot

Based on Tatsuhiko Hikagi's manga series of the same name, it is produced by Studio Gokumi and directed by Yuuji Yamaguchi.

It's about Kiri Haimura who has an obsession to cut hair. One day, he meets Iwai, a Hair Queen, who is cursed with long but luscious hair that cannot be cut. Once Kiri cuts Iwai's hair and gets acquainted with her, he finds himself being Iwai's bodyguard in a twisted game where many serial killers want to slaughter Iwai. Can Kiri protect Iwai, his precious queen?

Before I introduce the characters, I'll have to explain some terminology. It's not much. Overall, it's a simple series.

  • Killing Goods are heirloom items that was previously used to kill people. It's passed down from generation to generation.

Characters

Kiri Haimura

He looks like a normal student, but he has this obsession to cut hair. He carries his heirloom scissors with him. Unbeknownst to him, his ancestor is a serial killer who killed many people using the same scissors. Now, he uses it to protect Iwai.

Iwai Mushiyanokouji

Iwai is the Hair Queen who is under Sumeragi's care. After meeting Kiri, the two become a inseparable since Kiri has to protect from psychopaths. She nicknames Kiri's weapon as the Severing Crime Edge.

Yamane Byouinzaka

Yamane is Houko's sister whose Killing Goods is a syringe, and she has this obsession to inject things. She calms her urge when she "plays" with Houko.

Houko Byouinzaka

Despite that she abuses Iwai, she does have some heart (or a bit of neglect) in her when she entrusts Kiri, a stranger, to protect Iwai.

Sumeragi Kanae

He's a crazy doctor with a loli fetish and a member of the Gossip organization.

Misumi Kashiko

Misumi is Kiri's classmate who is a model working at her family's hair salon business. She and Kiri share the same obsession with hair to an extent. She remarks that hair can make a woman.

Naruto Koutaro

Naruto is Kiri's classmate who is the ace of the Iai team at school.

Nigi Ubusato

Nigi is Kiri's classmate who loves the occult.

Why Should You Watch It?

It's a funny, romantic series with a weird fetish and some scenes can be misinterpreted as euphemisms. If you are into romance, this show is a must watch. However, if you have trouble with blood or creepy hobbies, this show might turn you off with its violence and crude scenes.

I hope you give this series a try. Don't forget to go the Severing Crime Edge Discussion!
