Kuroko no Basket

Image

So I just finished Kuroko no Basket S2 today so I thought I’d write this. Did I mention that I love sports anime? Basketball is one of my favorite sports so I really enjoyed watching this. It really inspires me to just go out there and start playing. I really enjoy watching them play against each other and it’s funny too. Kuroko no Basket is a must watch anime. Sometimes when I see their new tricks I’m like, “Can people in real life actually do that?” They look so cool! :3 And…… muscles!

(Left to Right: Seijuro Akashi, Midorima Shintaro, Aomine Daiki, Kuroko Tetsuya, Kise Ryota, Murasakibara Atsushi.) The Generation of Miracles is an all-star team of Teiko Junior High. The team won the Junior High Nationals for three consecutive years. They are recognized as the best players in the league. Their talents are far beyond a regular player. After graduation Junior High, all 6 players are now scattered across 6 different schools.

I don’t know if you’ve noticed but all their names have colors in them that match the colors of their hair with the exception of Kuroko (Kuro=black). People are wondering why Kuroko’s hair isn’t black. Well, I think it’s because the meaning behind his name doesn’t refer to his hair but to his role. He said that he was a shadow and shadow’s are black. This is just my opinion though. Aomine (Ao=blue), Midorima (Midori=green), Murasakibara (Murasaki=purple), Kise (Ki=yellow), Akashi (Aka=red), and Momoi (their manager in Teiko) (momo=pink).

Seirin High’s basketball team only consists of 1st years and 2nd years. It was formed by Kiyoshi Teppei. Their coach is a high school girl Aida Riko who is also the daughter of a trainer. Seirin High is noted for having exceptional high-leveled run and gun style. Their offense is considered one of the best in the region. Their main line up is composed of the rookie duo Kuroko and Kagami, “Iron Heart” Kiyoshi, Clutch Shooter Hyuuga, and Control Tower Izuki. I like their team, they’re fun 🙂 I also love their coach. Because of her gender and age, people think she’s the manager. Because her dad’s a trainer, she’s good at identifying your physical status.

This dog is Tetsuya #2. He’s named that because of how his eyes looked like Kuroko’s. He’s so adorable! Both him and Kuroko.

My favorite player is Aomine Daiki. I just love the way he plays. Aomine was the ace player of the Generation of Miracles and the former partner of Kuroko. When they were still in Junior High, Aomine was outgoing and friendly. He actually smiled a lot back then. Because he loves basketball, he trained and got stronger up to the point where he often completely crush his opponents’ will to play. He searched for someone who could possibly beat him but never found them. Because of this, he got to the conclusion that nobody will be able to beat him. His famous quote is, “The only one who can beat me, is me.” Aomine showed some kind of admiration towards Kuroko. (I love both of them! especially when they’re together and playing basketball!)

Aomine is literally a monster in basketball. He’s extremely fast, extremely strong, and extremely skillful. Aomine learned to play basketball on the streets without lessons. He’s play is known to be limitless. He uses many feints, unnecessary movements, and doesn’t play a standard form of basketball. He can score many creative baskets and can also get a shot off from essentially any position on the court, therefore making him unpredictable. And this is why he’s my favorite 😀

Image

Because they’re so cute in this picture! >.< They’re all so happy, I wish they’d be like this in the end.

Image

Yeah, you should definitely watch this, both season 1 and season 2. Season 3 probably won’t be out for a while. I get the feeling that I’m gonna have to wait for another year. *sigh* Well, hopefully it’s gonna be good. I can’t wait! :3 -R!n

Non Non Biyori

Image

Non Non Biyori is a slice of life anime. It shows you what they do in their everyday lives. Ichijou Hotaru and her parents moved from Tokyo to the middle of the country. She goes to a school where there are only a total of 5 students and a teacher in the whole campus. The school consists of a 1st grader, a 5th grader, a 7th grader, an 8th grader, and a 9th grader. This anime just basically shows you their lives in the country. I like it. It has a soothing feeling to it and it’s funny. I mean seriously, imagine you going to a school with only 5 people. That’s…wow. And there’s barely any stores in here. The closest you can get is a candy store. It’s like a one big family in a little village where people don’t have to lock their houses because everyone’s that nice. In the school, one of the teacher’s student is her sister and 3 other students are siblings. I would actually love to live in a peaceful place like this once in a while. 

Image

My favorite character is this girl right here, the one holding a recorder and has purple hair. Her name is Miyauchi Renge. Renge is a very random child who likes to make up her own words (like what she’s saying in the picture. It’s her own way of saying good morning) and songs. She usually wears a poker face but she also shows other expressions. Despite her blank expression, she is very friendly and social. She is loved by all characters, I mean it’s kind of hard not to. She is so cute and I love how random she is. It’s especially cute when she starts staring at one of the characters. :3

Image

(From left to right) Ichijou Hotaru, Koshigaya Natsumi, Miyauchi Renge, Koshigaya Komari. Ok so judging from their height, you’d probably think that the tallest one is the oldest. Well you’re wrong, Komari is actually the oldest (the one on the far right). Hotaru is actually a 5th grader, Renge’s a 1st grader, Natsumi’s a 7th grader, and Komari is an 8th grader. When you get to one of the episodes where they go to the beach, it’s really hard to tell that Hotaru’s a 5th grader. 

ImageOk so this is Hotaru now.

Image This was Hotaru last year.

Like seriously, how does someone grow that fast?! I wanna know her secrets T.T Hotaru also admires her senpai, Komari.

Image

My second favorite is Natsumi. She is seriously hilarious. She is really energetic and irresponsible. She can’t sit still and she likes to make everything fun and that’s what I like about her. She is often scolded by her mom about her grades and stuff like not cleaning her room. When her mom starts getting mad she calls it the Armageddon. I love how she exaggerated that, it’s so funny. She usually hides her report cards and test scores from her mom. I mean who wouldn’t with those scores? My mom would kill me if my grades were that bad. Natsumi is such a comedian.

Image

Then there’s this guy, Suguru, Komari and Natsumi’s older brother. He’s a ninth grader and her never talks in the anime. He participates in some stuff but you never hear him say a word. There was a time where he almost spoke but was interrupted by someone. He’s actually really good at guitar and some other stuff too, like studying, falling into a hole in the school, and making anime cat figurines out of clay. This guy just seems like he has no care in the world. He let his sister make him into a scarecrow. 

So you know if you have time you should watch this. It may be boring in the beginning but it gets funnier. It only has 12 short episodes. I watched this in one day so you should be able to make some time. If you’re looking for an easygoing anime to watch, you should watch Non Non Biyori.

Ok STORY TIME: There was actually this one part in the show where one of the girls (Natsumi) was putting some pepper in her noodles. You know how there’s like little holes on the container so that only a little pepper would come out? Well the cap fell off so all the pepper inside fell in. And my brothers and I laughed at this. And while we were laughing I was putting some pepper on my breakfast. I was all like, “How stupid,” while I laughed and then the same thing happened to me, the cap fell off and I ended up eating a bowl full pepper. Haha

Blood Lad (SPOILER Alert!)

Image

 

Summary: Staz Blood is a vampire boss of a section of the demon world. Despite being a vampire, he’s more interested in the Japanese culture than he is in human blood. When he learned that Yanagi Fuyumi, a Japanese teenage girl, accidentally wanders into the demon world, he jumps to the occasion. But while he was dealing with an intruder in his territory, Fuyumi is killed by a monster and turns into a wandering ghost. Staz vows to her that he will find a way to bring her back to life. 

Image

This is a really funny anime and you guys should watch it. My favorite character is Staz’s little sister, Liz. She may act all tough but behind that mask, literally behind a mask, is an adorable little girl! She’s so cute, I wanna hug her. Liz is in charge of keeping order in Hell, determining whether an individual is guilty or not and gives punishment to those who are guilty. Liz feels rejected by her oldest brother Braz as he pays more attention to Staz. This caused her to despise Staz. Liz tries to act to be the “good girl” his oldest brother wants him to be. Liz is a very lonely girl wit no friends, but later in the story she grows fond of Fuyumi after she tells her she’ll always be with her. 

Image

Look at this adorable face :3

Image

 

And this is Hydra Bell, a sorceress of the highest quality. Bell is a bubbly person, but she’s also smart and clever. She is attracted to powerful men, which is one of the reasons why she fell in love with Staz. She is really good at using spatial magic, the ability to travel through space and transport just about anywhere, kind of like a magic portal. Although, she requires a frame to do this kind of magic. I like her because she’s funny.

Image

 

Ok, so apparently Bell and Fuyumi are sisters. It is said that demons have a doppelganger (a look alike) in the human world. If both doppelgangers meet, they both combine as one. One day, Bell and her demon mother went to the human world where her mother meets Fuyumi’s mom. Of course, Fuyumi and Bell were young and didn’t know this. Neyn, whose body contains both mothers decided to live in the demon world which was a hard decision for her since she had to leave Fuyumi behind (of course Fuyumi’s dad was there to take care of her). So when Fuyumi entered the demon world, Neyn ordered her son, Knell, to bring her to her for a reunion.

So all this got me thinking, what if I have a doppelganger? Wouldn’t that be cool? I’d be scared though. haha

Image

Oh yeah, this is how she looks after the combination. 🙂

Image

Yeah, you gotta watch this. That’s Fuyumi by the way :3 It’s really funny and it only has 10 episodes. Not that long, so you can watch it easily. 😀 Well see ya. I’m playing Pokemon right now xD -R!n 

Sakura Trick Episode 9 (HAHA)

Image

 

Ok so in this episode I was hoping that they’d kiss like usual. I’m not saying that they did not kiss, cuz they did. But they weren’t shown. In the first part, Haruka and Yuu were talking on the phone. Before hanging up, Yuu kissed her phone, as if kissing Haruka and Haruka did the same. It’s like a “Kiss me through the phone” thing. 

Image

 

And there’s also the part where Haruka and Yuu took a detour on the way to school. Their friends thought it was weird on how they would take the long way instead of the short one, so they tailed them. When they got there, they were nowhere to be found so they thought they were in those round things (picture above) and they were. You can totally hear them moaning and all that so it’s safe to assume that they were kissing but it wasn’t shown. (They didn’t get caught by the way).

Image

The only kiss that was shown in this episode was this here (pic above) even though it was only in the forehead. So unexpected though. President Mitsuki tripped and Haruka went to catch her, but this happened. LOL I wonder if the Pres is satisfied now. Of course after that, she ran away at full speed. 

Haha! -R!n
