Black Rock Shooter TV Anime Review

All right, I am going to be doing a post of what I honestly think of the anime? Honestly? Awesome stuff right here. But truly? Too short. It wasn’t really…crammed or anything it flowed nicely but 8 episodes…? Really guys? You drop the OVA yet only give us an 8 episode anime series. AT LEAST MAKE IT 12 EPISODES CONFOUND YOU! >:0

*Ahem* Moving on.

Image

I was really hating how people were comparing the OVA and the anime so much and how much they were hating it. Some even dared to say it was the least favorite show of the season. I think not. It made me drop all other anime series just to watch it. It’s a terrific series plus my gorgeous Dead Master came back in her beautiful glory. I really loved how they made Black Rock Shooter with a hood giving her a more ‘mysterious’ side of her. Made my heart ‘doki doki’ when she made a certain ‘tsun tsun’ expression. Kyaa ; _ ; I’m hopeless.

Let’s talk about the characters. First off to me, it’s going to be Black Rock Shooter.

Image

Not sure if you guys have noticed but they have been making her pigtails spikier and spikier and I’m not to enthusiastic about it. Course it gives her ‘I’ve been through a lot’ type of look but honestly I liked how less jagged it was before. Am I comparing it to the OVA? Nope. Just the original art honestly. I love Black Rock Shooter’s character but for some reason they made her out like a bad guy in episode 3. What happened there?!

Image

I still don’t understand the whole ‘give me your hand I’m your savior’ type of thing but really? Things like this scene and a whole lots of other things just left a lot of questions opened. And that was another reason why I was aggravated of the series being too short. I would have been too happy if it was 24 episodes but NOOOOOOOO it was 8! =_=

Moving forward. You will see me rampage from time to time >:0 because this was my favorite series for the season. Why wouldn’t it be? >_> it had Dead Master! 😀 !!!*SHOT* DX

Image

Over all Black Rock Shooter was an amazing character. Especially in the last few episodes. Though the last episode really confused me. Mato was truly BRS here so the BRS in the checkered board world was the original BRS yet corrupted as IBRS right? It’s CONFUSING ME! Stop it huke! X’D

Though my friend and I agree on one thing at least. The best phrase most likely used in the series of when BRS faced IBRS when her ‘friends’ came to her aid was “I’m going to hurt you”. Best. Quote. Evah! :’D

******

 Okay moving on toward my beautiful dark queen of the world, Dead Master <3. As you guys can plainly see, yes, she has been my favorite honestly ever since the OVA came out. I remembered when I first saw the preview of the anime I was like o_0 Dead Master got more moe?! :’DImage

She is as regal as always but a tinge of kinkiness to her with all her amazing chains. Her character design is more ‘poofy’ with bigger wings and extra frill rather than the bolero like she originally had. I ADORED her having glasses in the anime since, ironically, I have the same shape of glasses I wear in real life though I have the color of black and white rather than neon green that she has. Still funny though :)!

Image

I kept rewinding the amazing chained scene between these two in episode 1 ( and a little in 2). I swear they have been my favorite yuri couple ever since 2010. A good friend of mine posted this on figure.fm for me bless their heart :’D! I am truly loving BRS’s ‘tsun tsun’ expression here and Dead Master like, “Don’t fight it. You know you truly want me~”. Though I think they kinda failed here since she looks more like the original Dead Master rather than the newest one X’D but I love this photo none the less! 😀

It was all going good until episode 4 and 5 *shudder*. I believe we all know why right? All I can say people were being very rude and obnoxious on how Yomi was acting in episode 4. Ummm I’m sure YOU have acted that way before at least ONCE in your lives. Especially the way she was rejected by that terrible shit head that should go drink paint thinner and die off the face of this Earth. (Harsh aren’t I?)Image

Course we discover later it wasn’t entirely her fault since she she was ‘released’ from all her pain and agony a few episodes ago but still. YOU DON’T SAY THAT TO PEOPLE! Sheesh =_=! I will warn you guys RIGHT NOW I can’t STAND Kagari. She is a worthless piece of shit that served her purpose and I want nothing to do with her. That’s it.

After episode 5 I went into literal depression. I didn’t eat much for a week. My sleep schedule was whacked. All I did was huddle in my bed and sleep, went to work, came home, sleep, cry a bit, sleep and more sleep. All I could remember is hearing both Dead Master’s and Mato’s screams whenever I went to sleep and made me cringe.Image

After all that, I didn’t even think I was gonna continue watching the series after episode 5 and even wished SO hard that they finished the friggin OVA series now! I remember getting all excited coming home to watch this episode and I was……speechless beyond belief. HOW COULD THEY DO THAT?! I MEAN SERIOUSLY! It traumatized me! T_T

Image

Over all, Dead Master was my favorite character in the entire series. She really developed and changed a lot even though friggin BRS killed her off like that! Though what concerns me that in the beginning she had the heart tattoo on her chest yet I don’t see it any more in the later episodes. I know it wasn’t a deep wound or anything but like some one previously posted in another blog that this happened almost within like a few weeks. It couldn’t have healed THAT quickly I don’t think but hey, it’s their world, so I suppose things are just a bit different there.

******

Gonna make this as painless as possibly but most likely gonna bash Kagari here quite a bit. Sorry Kagari lovers : /

Image

I can’t stand her character. People think she is ‘cute’. HOW CAN YOU FIND HER CUTE?! She basically sent Yomi off the edge! And not to mention the crazy possessiveness she had around episode 1 and 2. Sorry love, but Mato already owned Yomi since the year of 2010. SO BACK OFF! >:0Image

Image

Though…I will admit her character design is really something else. I love the crown they gave her and its unique design (sucker for crowns). And not to mention her legs are wheels o_0. She must travel quite bit but watch out for those bumps in the road! XD Also not a fan of yellow. Can’t stand it. Though at times I will rarely like if USED CORRECTLY. Her wheel legs are really something else but too bad that BRS totaled them in episode 2. Mwahahaha.

Now what ticked me off the most is when in the last episode she stands up and has tears running down her face saying, “I guess I love Yomi after all”. Know what I would say?

ImageExactly. But more of like, “BITCH DO I KNOW YOU?!” o_0

Long post is long X_X Gonna do Strength and Black Gold Saw later in part 2 and other thoughts I had of the series. Thank you all for reading and hoped you enjoyed my rambling X’D!

Full Moon’s Sanctuary

Well hello everyone! ^_^ After finally a year after reading other people’s blogs or pages, I have decided to make my own blog. I was very happy to hear some people were very interested in me doing blogs and that really makes me happy. So, for my first blog, I have decided to take a tour of my sanctuary (bedroom if you will), since this is where mainly all my creativity starts ^_^. Ready? I hope so :3 let’s get to it!

Image

A small look on my entire bedroom. I did forget to do one wall but that was my personal wall of photos, jewelry, ps3, tv and etc. I am planning on redoing this wall hopefully this year with a desk perhaps. My queen bed won’t be here probably after this year (just too big for little ol me ^^;; tehe).

Image

Though I am not into ‘still’ figures, when it comes to Kuroshitsuji, I just HAD to get this one :D. Ciel Phantomhive is one of my favorite anime characters of all time. I have watched both seasons of the anime several times, and up to date with the recent ongoing manga chapters ^_^. Kuroshitsuji has been my favorite anime since it was first released out in Japan. A pretty hard core fan I would say ^_^.

Image

I sadly took these photos with a sad camera that just needs to retire, my old coolpix camera. Poor thing. But yes, *ahem*, these are the oldest dolls in my collection. I have had these since my 10th birthday ^_^. I am very proud I still have them and probably gonna keep them for a long time :D. And yes, Sailor Moon was my first anime when I was little other than Digimon and Cardcaptor Sakura ^_^.

Image

Since the age of 12, I have been collecting manga, my collection is decent compared to others but I am very happy with it and how much it has grown! 😀 My first figma was Miku Hatsune and one of my prized collections since she sells for a pretty good sum these days o.o. And my latest nendroid was Miku Append, her append mode face is just too cute for words :’D. As you can also see, I do have the BRS petite from the Blueray package of the OVA. Though not very fond of petites, wayyy too small for my taste o.o;;.

Image

 

My Yomi(<3) and Mato figmas and also another petite set from the BRS OVA once again. Oh Yomi’s cute 0 o 0 face! I definitely want to take more photos of her some day :D!

Image

Though a bit embarrassing, yes, I do collect quite a bit of Monster High dolls ^////^. But lately I have been quite pissed with them since the show is at its peak of popularity and they are like releasing 10 new dolls every flippin season. And since I have several stuff I collect(not to mention my doll hobby), I don’t have the newest dolls as of late :/ nor the income to get them.

Image

In the year of 2010, I went on a crazy frenzy of buying TONS AND TONS of Hello Kitty plushes :D! My favorite is Cinnamoroll, which some times has the face of the evil Kyubey =_=;;. A friend pointed it out once on webcam, how sad that I never noticed before.

Image

Where my girls are displayed. The blinds are closed at ALL times mainly due to Mizuki being a resin doll. I try to keep her far from the window as possible. I see some collectors put their girls in glass cases but I just don’t have the heart to do it. They are usually displayed here, or on top of my bed when it is made :).

Mio: What is she doing..?

Mizuki: Your guess is as good as mine.

Miku: *Daydreaming*~

Image

Image

Recently, I have started a bit of a collection of My Little Pony XD. I still can’t believe a brony got me into it but yes, I love the series very much. My collection won’t be too big since I get discouraged of Hasbro not adding important details to some of the characters =_=.

Image

Another keepsake from my 10th birthday, my Sailor Moon piggy bank :’D. Still have it. And here are also my Dead Master (<3 ❤ <3) and Black Rock Shooter figmas epically displayed. Sadly, I only have these two since I can’t find Black Gold Saw or Strength figmas at the moment. Waiting patiently for someone to post them for decent prices on Figure.Fm >o> patiently…

Image

Another shelf of my cute nendroid collection. It’s slowly growing and come to find out I have like 10 nendroids and only 5 figmas. I need to start collecting more figmas >_<! I sadly, would have had more if I didn’t lose my job back in fall of 2011. Sad face…

Image

Agh! Blurry! Sorry! X_X But yes, my two favorite girls at the moment with other faces from nendroids <3!

Image

My Monster High collection continued here, my FAVORITE artist collection books of Arina Tanemura in the background. Will get back to that in a second ^_^.

Image

My mini corner of my Kuroshitsuji collection ^_^. Sorry for the failed paper mini’s of the characters X_X I just got into them recently but was only doing them out of printer paper and that just doesn’t do too well. I possibly need thicker paper perhaps?

The Ciel Phantomhive nendroid was my first nendroid collected since he is my original favorite <3! And soon after that came Sebastian. Gotta love his cat fetish ^ 3 ^!

Image

My Pullip Dal of Ciel Phantomhive as Robin from Season 1 Episode 4. Probably one of my most favorite episodes in the first season XD. I DID have the Pullip Taeyang of Tutor Sebastian but there was just too many things wrong with his body that I had to send him back to the seller. Planning on getting another one though! Ciel is currently trying to display this look here:

Image

Suck up <_<.So evil yet so cute. Why my obsession of Ciel Phantomhive Robin version? Because he, dressed as Robin, is a bit dressed like my original character, especially if I was a 2D girl :). And your probably thinking, okay, you like this character, why haven’t you made a doll out of him yet? Right? 😀 Well, I am definitely taking my time planning it all out and wanting to pick the perfect mold for my lovely Ciel ^_^. And Sebastian as well >_> but his mold is a bit tricky since he certainly is one hell of a butler ^_~.

Image

My wall *cough*soontobeshrineofkuroshitsuji*cough* is displayed near my bed ^_^ as you saw in the first look of my bedroom. I love this poster a lot since it really is rich in color. Took some photos of the manga and scans of the series and decided to post all around the poster. Still not complete but it’s a good start :D!

Image

A bit random, a few more photos of Kuroshitsuji, a wall hanger of Queen of Hearts that a friend gave me since they know I am a HUGE fan of Alice in Wonderland, the original book of course. A poster of Vampire Knight that I got from the Shoujo Beat! magazine. Pictures of the online animation of Lilium in which I am fully in love with her character, even inspired me to dress like her when I was in middle school to high school. Creeped just a few people out though mwahaha! And a small keychain (you’ll see closely by the VK poster) of Precious Miseries Lilith. Sadly, the series is struggling just a little, I believe there is only one book and few plushes of the other dolls. Very cute series ^_^! I hope it becomes more popular though 😦 .

Image

Image

Now some of you might wonder….why is there a lion above your bathroom door? o_0 I consider him dear Aslan from Chronicles of Narnia. Read all of the books and a very precious child hood memory and respect of him :). Consider him the protector of my room from evil spirits ^_^.

 

Image

As you can see, I collect a LOT of plushes. Some I have had since I was little and some I have just got within the past year. Duzzel (name from another good manga series Vampire Game), my favorite skelanimal (from the original plush series as you can plainly see XD), has been sleeping with me since the age of 15. Who is also holding my decked out Nexus S phone. Gotta love Samsung! Leo Jr ( made by build a bear) was a gift from a dear old friend a few years ago but currently pulling off Jay Chou’s look from the recent movie Green Hornet XD.

Image

Give me an Asian guy in a suit, and he’ll most likely feel so violated after I am done looking at him like he’s something good to eat. Yumz~ ^_~

Image

That pretty much concludes my bedroom tour. I will keep it up to date as possible since I know I will be doing a lot of changes this year due to my collection and getting my first desktop computer and desk. How much fun THAT’S gonna be! XD I apologize again for the horrible photos but my father hid his camera from me since I didn’t charge it from the last photo shoot of the girls being outside >_>.

Image

Many of you maybe wonder why my name is possibly ‘Mitsuki’. Honestly, it’s not my real name but I consider it to be my Japanese name. From my Arina Tanemura books from earlier, my name was inspired by the anime and manga series called “Full Moon wo Sagashite”. The story touched me in so many areas of my life, it’s easily one of my most favorites. Plus for as long as I could remember I have been studying the moon and know all the cycles it goes through every month. Since ‘Mitsuki’ really means ‘Full Moon’ ^_^. And my first BJD girl is named ‘Mizuki’ which means ‘Beautiful Moon’. I wanted her to be special in a way since she was my first girl. Thank you all for reading and hope you can look forward to my next post. Which will most likely be doll related XD. Have a good day! ^_^
