Ao no Exorcist is Aniplex’s newest anime and it seems to be making it into the popularity polls pretty high up.
The animation is great! Seamless and NOT shiny! I almost thought it was a Square Enix anime! (I am Squeenix biased lol).
Its got a very basic story-line as is expected of a shounen title. Boy with strange powers is rejected by general public and seeks strength to prove self and/or protect/avenge loved ones(friendship, struggle, victory). However the actual development of Rin (the main character) and as to WHY he becomes an Exorcist is a real twist that couldn’t have (or could have depending on how versed you are in the workings of shounen anime) been guessed at! Wish I could say more but that would entail a SPOILER ALERT that I’d rather not incur! SO CHECK IT OUT!! Its worth it!!
Its funny and entertaining and is proving to become even more popular in the future as the story fully unfolds. Check it out at Crunchyroll and support the creators by joining the CR community! Its cheap AND legal!
but then again since when do most otaku concern themselves with getting anime legally????
OP: Core Pride by Uverworld
ED: Take Off by 2PM (believe it or not!)
Love the ending! especially the tiny part where the characters do 2PM’s dance moves in the MV! So cute!!
First look at Korras face! This picture makes me really happy, because it looks like she is firebending and water bending at the same time! It’s going to be exciting going into the story with the avatar already knowing how to bend more then one element.
Also, according to this, if I’m reading this right, the show is now going to be 24 episodes instead of 12? That makes me very happy. 12 is not enough. The writers are too good. Filler type episodes from the first series ended up being my favorite episodes.
“We have a lot of ideas for the ‘Avatar’ universe and who knows? We could be tapping into them for years to come,” Konietzko says.
In that interview they talk about how the characters are older, and how they have cars and motorcycles. Also, they’re at a more appropriate age for relationships, so it won’t frighten me as much this time around. I’m interested to see how they work out the new villain. He’s supposed to be anti-bending, so I’m wondering how it is that he is able to take on an avatar… Also, they mention that we will sort of finally figure out what happened to Zuko’s mother- but ‘not necessarily in the show’? I know those guys got to be sick of getting asked the same questions all the time, but I seriously feel that they’re kind of… mean? If you read the interview- you can probably see what I mean.
Also, Dante Basco has said that he will not be playing the voice of Zuko, but someone related to him– so I will go ahead and assume a son– or grandson, since it takes place 70 years in the future.

A friend showed me this in class and it made my day yesterday!The singing, not so much, but that’s not the point!!lol
You know you can related to more than one of the scenarios so don’t deny the truth!lol
So Feb’s just started and for those of us that have money (me NOT included) it means a whole new month of goodies to spend on! For those of us who love anime (me included) that means a whole slew (or maybe not) of anime DVDs being released by some of our favourite (or most hated) subbing/licensing companies! So, while you could go to each and every subbing/licensing site to check out their releases one by one you can also do that here! All at once! and at the same time! Talk about convenience served on a silver platter!
.__. You’ll find the releases by clicking on the page break! Continue reading
This is only one min long, and its kind of horrible. But its rather entertaining. I love how all of his sound effects are worked into it. I also love how in the show when he sings it you just wanna punch a small animal, but then you find yourself singing it later. haha.

Since its now 2011 and not to early to start getting ready for fall and counting down until Legend of Korra is relased- I think I can start stalking sites to find out more about it. For those of you that dont know, or cant tell by the art, Legend of Korra is going to be the– sequel? — to Avatar: The Last Airbender. ((THE CAROON))
Basically, this one is going to take place after Aang dies, triggering the next avatar, Korra. The story takes place in a steam-punk type city where there is an anti bender revolt as well as lots of crime. (this makes me very happy). Aangs son, Tenzin is a main character- his role in the show is to help train the teenage avatar airbending.
Im really excited to see our characters from the old show all old and such~ I wanna see Zuko old, TOPH! I WANNA SEE TOPH AS KICK ASS LIKE BUMI! Well, shell be even more awesome- cause she can bend metal and such! Haha, I dont wanna see Sokka old- I hope hes dead to. haha. That was bad to say, but Sokka is like the love of my life, and I dont want to see him anything but healthy and handsome. (Crushing on teenage cartoons is bad for your health)
PUKES! Not so off topic, I have just become aware of the fact that the live action Avatar the Last Airbender actually made money! More then 115 million! wth. Well, at least Dev will get paid. I still feel upset that he was in such a fail movie. Just to prove my fail- I dressed up as freaking Toph for that movie. I went there at midnight with my appa suffed animal and left there pissed as hell. Oh, I just remembered the drive home, haha. We were SO angry.
Anyway, more on this laters.
Because their faces change, but their voices dont- I never really realized that the voice actors in the animes I love most could be the same. It recently came to my attention that characters of Soul Eater and Ouran High School Host Club have the same voice actors, and because of this- i had a good laugh. These two shows, in my opinion, are complete opposties. One gave me happy thoughts, the other gave me nightmares.
Because the shows are so different, the parts these people are playing are also different. Here are some of the strangest ones that I found.
Soul Eater: OHSHC:
Death the Kid Hikaru Hitatchiin
Tsubaki Renge Houshakuji
Giriko Kyouya Ootori
Spirit Tamaki Suoh
Vic Mignogna (This one isnt that different,
but I find it funny.)
Free (Werewolf) Mori
Death Yuzuru Suoh
John Swasey (Tamakis dad.)
Black Star (The general fact hes played by a girl.)
Thats just a couple of random ones. There were a lot. I got lost in MyAnimeList.
