Ao no Exorcist [Blue Exorcist]

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!!

DVD release for February

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!

Soul Eater/Ouran Voice Actors

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
Todd Haberkorn

Tsubaki                        Renge Houshakuji
Monica Rial

Giriko                            Kyouya Ootori
Tatum Michaels

Spirit                             Tamaki Suoh
Vic Mignogna             (This one isnt that different,
                                                      but I find it funny.)

Free (Werewolf)             Mori
Travis Willingham

Death                               Yuzuru Suoh
John Swasey                  (Tamakis dad.)

Black Star                      (The general fact hes played by a girl.)
Brittney Karbowski

Thats just a couple of random ones. There were a lot. I got lost in MyAnimeList.
