A Look at New Anime’s

I am happy I found a new anime to watch. It is called, “New Game.” this would be the second one I started today.  I couldn’t get into the first one and since I moved on I cannot recall the title of it..

{} New Game! Is an anime television series based on the manga series created by Shōtarō Tokunō and published in Houbunsha’s Manga Time Kirara Carat magazine. The series follows Aoba Suzukaze, a high school graduate who begins working at the Eagle Jump video game company as a character designer.

#1 This was my first time seeing an all-girl cast and just like in reality girls can do almost everything a guy can do. I didn’t just choose this anime, because it was featuring girls as the main characters. I like the idea of a ‘new game’ or a ‘new anime.’ I was looking for something that was fun and had no fighting in it.  

Yes, there were challenges, but instead of hurting each other with their fist, they worked everything out using their creative minds. I wonder what the world would look like if each person could just talk out their differences? 

Okay, sorry for getting off track. I am sad, because I watched an anime late last night and forgot its title. It was the last thing I turned off and it will still be in my history. Yeah right, because I got up working on my “Online travel” blog and that history was no more. 

I was about to give up on looking for another anime for now, but I had to watch something while I enjoyed my coffee. So, I came across

Kenka Banchou Otome: Girl Boys

Synopsis: Kenka  Banchou Otome – Girl Beats Boys, Hinako Nakayama has spent all of her life being raised in state-run orphanages, without ever knowing her family. As she’s about to enter high school, Hinako is approached by Hikaru, a boy who claims to be her twin brother.

According to Hikaru, Hikaru and Hinako are the children of the head of the powerful Onigashima yakuza family, and Hikaru wants Hinako to switches places with him a Shishiku Academy, an all-boys school overrun with the nation’s toughest delinquents. Can Hinako save her brother, find romance, and become the new boss of the school?

#2 I didn’t think I would see another anime where a girl is pretending to be a boy like, “The Host Club”. The only difference here is that only a few know she is really a girl. At first they tried to get her to tell her secret, because a few guessed or had an idea that she was a girl. For reasons of their own they accepted it, and helped her.  One of them turned out to be a childhood friend.

I was only supposed to watch one episode, but I ended up watching all 12 and now I am hoping there will be a second season. After all this is only her first year.

SoniAni: Super Sonico The Animation 

Synopsis: Super Sonico is a clutzy, adorable, and well-endowed 18-year old girl. She’s a complete sucker for anything cute, especially stray cats, all of which she giddily adopts. However, though Sonico should be enjoying a carefree and simply lifestyle as a young college student, her life is really anything but easy: she must balance being a professional model, working part-time at her grandmother’s restaurant, and practicing guitar and performing concerts with her friends Suzi Fujimi and Fuuri Watanuki in their band, First Astronomical Velocity–all while attending college. SoniAni: Super Sonico the Animation follows Sonico as she faces daunting challenges in her search for her place in the world, even when her days are brimming with love and happiness.

#3 I LOVE This anime. I have been laughing on and off all day and even a small tear. Sonico was a;ways smiling and that made other’s want to smile as well. She encouraged others sometimes without even knowing it, a person with a good heart, and a passion to set her dreams free.

She was a model, but that was just a job away to pay for school and to allow her to perform in her band. She also LOVES cats and who couldn’t love anyone who loves cats?

** sidenote: This should have been watched in a few days, but I watched all 12 episodes. I guess it would have been okay if I was working on a project, but I didn’t feel like turning on the lights. Oh well it’s after 11pm and with all this darkness. I am going to call it a night….

Can’t believe I not only watched two new anime series in one day, but I like them enough to watch again. Hope there’s another season for them both?

Restaurant to Another World : Japanese light novel series

Restaurant to Another World is a Japanese light novel series written by Junpei Inuzuka, with illustrations by Katsumi Enami. Shufunotomo have released five volumes of the series since February 2015. An Anime television series adaptation by Silver Link aired from July 3 to September 18, 2017. A second season by OLM will premiere on October 2, 2021.  En.wikipedia.org{}

# 4: I was looking for an anime that didn’t have any fighting in it or magic and when I typed in the word ‘cafe’ the Restaurant to Another World came up. This restaurant caters to different world’s. At first some were confused and didn’t think human food would be as good as it is, but everyone who comes through this door agrees the food is the best that they had ever tasted.

** side note : I really did enjoy this easy going story and although I only watched six episodes. I will watch the remaining six episodes at a later date. 

{}  Neighbor’s Club | Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai Wiki | Fandom
      haganai.fandom.com > wiki> Neighbor & The Neighbor’s Club (隣人部, Rinjin-bu)  is a social club and the focus of the Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai series. Realizing that the both lack social lives, Kodaka Hasegawa and  Yozora Mikazuki decide that the best way to improve their situation is to form the Neighbor’s Club to make friends and learn social skills. {}

#5 This anime started off okay as two people noticing that they would like to make friends, but their personality makes it hard to do. They agree to start a club, good, and the first two episodes seemed okay. Then that changed and THIS ANIME ISN’T MEANT FOR YOUNG ADULTS OR THOSE WITH A FAITH KIND OF MIND.

F.Y.I   That’s the reason why I didn’t add  a picture. I cannot say how much I DISLIKE this anime.  I think I will go back to something I have already watched and like. I will look for something new over the weekend…  Who can guess what I will be watching next?

A New Anime..

I started watching a new anime and of course I forgot its title. Good thing there is google. This is what I typed in, ‘an anime where a young girl solves mystery and stays in a library,’ and this is its answer:

{} Gosick No. Kazuya, a Japanese student in the Saint Marguerite Academy in Sauville, meets a mysterious girl named Victorque atop the school’s library tower.

Gosick – Wikipedia {}

{} https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/b/b0/Gosick_vol_1.jpg

I don’t get why she has to stay on the school grounds all the time or that her brother act likes she isn’t there, even though she is helping him, but Victorque accepts it as her faith. I want to say Kazuya was tricked into going to the tower and there he found a friend he didn’t know he was looking for.

She has a mind that will clear up any kind of mystery and loves finding an answer to an unknown question. He seems to always be in an area at the wrong time and by the time he realizes he is in trouble it’s too late. 

He helps her not to be bored all the time and she helps him be able to stand on his own and not in the shadow of his brothers.

This is a cool anime. I am enjoying this story as my pastel project gets bigger. The weekend is almost here and I don’t want to spend it in the house. I don’t have a clue as to what I will do or where I will go, but I have two more days to think it out…

BYE IV Now, LD*

A Staurday, with Anime…

I am torn between looking for a new anime to start my weekend. I am on the hunt for an anime without fighting in it. I almost want to go back and watch some of my favorites again like:

  • Carole & Tuesday – I watched it on Netflix, (twice) and the best thing about watching a series on Netflix is it starts on the next episode.
  • Forest of Piano      – Another anime I saw on Netflix twice.
  • Violet Evergarden – Well this one has fighting in it, but it is a cool series.
  • After School Dice Club – is also a good anime series, but that’s on Hulu.
  • Fruits Basket        – Has three seasons if you cannot get past the part about curses, then this wouldn’t be the best anime for you. I liked it enough to watch them all twice. Three times.
  • I am still on One Piece, but that has a lot of fighting in it. I am not totally against fighting, but there should be more than that..

 Then again all I want to do is eat my big tasty breakfast, read my book (even though it’s online), and then work on my small crochet project. I am reading my favorite author Ms. Kathleen E. Woodiwiss, “A Rose in Winter”. Well, I cannot read and watch anime, because the book would overrule anything I could have heard. I can crochet though.

‘One Piece,’ won over searching for something new as I enjoyed my breakfast and then a cup of coffee. I am so relaxed. I may just close my eyes for some time and then —

Sometimes it is best to stop planning your next step and as they say, “Go with the Flow.” I have been on the move all week dealing with crazy coworkers, busy customers (who think they should be able to do as they please, even if it’s against a store’s rule), and life in general. I see no harm in doing nothing… 

Its going to be hard, because I am always moving or doing something. Even as I am about to close out my thought, I am thinking about looking for a new anime, and —

** I didn’t think i could just stop looking for a new anime, but I haven’t found it yet. I did find one I started watching, but got sidetracked and don’t remember how it ended, so I am now going to watch “The Lost Song,” on Netflix…

This anime has magic and friendship within it and I can’t wait to find out how it ends. The cover picture does look like it should be a good story.. I won’t know until I get past a few episodes.. 

Think I will go out for a walk before I get to watching as I work on another crochet project. I am making wash clothes, who knew this is an item that some would buy?

I may not be an expert on Anime, but I do enjoy watching a good story. There are a lot of stories I will not look at, (some are either too bloody or go against my beliefs) but there are countless stories to choose from.

I decided I wasn’t going to just drop a random post every now and then. It is beyond time to redo my blog and get organized. 

Now don’t get me wrong www.3amThunderofWords.com  was created to write down an idea, to share a laugh or two, and show off whatever crochet project I was working on. It is time to step up my game and how else can I do that, unless I take that 1st step……

Then again I am NOT going to change everything, because that wouldn’t be cool. I am adding two extra pages (the other one will be me being creative with my hands or talking about crochet, cross stitch, and maybe a book). This will help me stay focused on that subject and maybe help everyone read what they are more interested in and cut out useless words.

I have also stopped trying to write a book, because that is something totally different. The difference between a book and a blog post is night & day. At least it is IV me…

When you pick up a book you are already prepared to be reading that story for a while. Whereas a blog post could be long,  not at long as a book, and you get its point.

I will NOT stop typing until my point gets across or until I am happy with its ending. After all, what is the point of keeping a run on sentence going just, because others have more words. ** Sorry I got turned around, because I stopped talking about anime…. 

It is Time 2 say, Bye IV Now, LD*

Anime Watch List 4: When…..

When Marnie Was There

VERY VERY GOOD MOVIE.

Annie was a young girl who kept to herself and didn’t know her selfe worth. At the beginning of the movie she pointed that out herself, her mother who has taken her in felt because she wasn’t her biological mother was at fault for her not fitting in. After an asthma attack the doctor suggested she should stay with family outside of the city.

At first I thought that was wrong, but for Annie that was the best thing. She not only made a friend who helped her see her self worth, but realized she was totally loved. Even if that friend was a ghost.

She did meet some real live people as well and this story was one of the BEST new stories I have seen in a VERY LONG TIME!!

I  got tired of  looking for something new to watch, so I went back to two of my favorite anime. Whispers of the Heart was the first movie and the next one was called The Cat returns.

Whisper of the Heart

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Whisper of the Heart (Japanese: 耳をすませば, Hepburn: Mimi o Sumaseba, literally “If You Listen Closely”) is a 1995 Japanese animated coming-of-age romantic drama film directed by Yoshifumi Kondō and written by Hayao Miyazaki based on the 1989 manga of the same name by Aoi Hiiragi. It was animated by Studio Ghibli for Tokuma Shoten, Nippon Television Network and Hakuhodo. The film stars Yoko Honna, Issei Takahashi, Takashi Tachibana, Shigeru Muroi, Shigeru Tsuyuguchi and Keiju Kobayashi. It was the first theatrical Studio Ghibli film to be directed by someone other than Miyazaki or Isao Takahata.

Whisper of the Heart was Kondō’s only film as director before his death in 1998. Studio Ghibli had hoped that Kondō would become the successor to Miyazaki and Takahata.[2]

It was the only theatrical Ghibli film not directed by Miyazaki or Takahata for seven years until The Cat Returns was released in 2002, which focused on a minor character of the film, Baron. {}

I LOVE this movie and I LOVE this article I just read about it. If you want to look at an anime that has no fighting in it and a good story I hope you take a chance of this one as well as the second one. I am going to add that review here if anyone else would like to read it as well.

Review: Whisper of the Heart (Japan, 1995)

The film’s protagonists, Shizuku and Seiji.

It’s almost sinful how little this movie is known or seen. There is no doubt this is one of the most emotionally intricate, beautiful pieces to come out of Ghibli, and modern cinema in general. As Yoshifumi Kondo’s first and last project after tragically passing away, there’s no doubt we preemptively lost who undoubtedly would’ve been one of modern cinema’s greatest directors. So rare is a first attempt so wonderful.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Cat_Returns

The Cat Returns

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Cat Returns (Japanese: 猫の恩返し, Hepburn: Neko no Ongaeshi, lit. “The Cat’s Repayment”) is a 2002 Japanese animated fantasy[3] film directed by Hiroyuki Morita, produced by Toshio Suzuki and Nozomu Takahashi, written by Reiko Yoshida, based on the manga The Cat Returns by Aoi Hiiragi, with music by Yuji Nomi, animated by Studio Ghibli for Tokuma Shoten, Nippon Television Network, Hakuhodo, Buena Vista Home Entertainment, Mitsubishi and Toho and distributed by the latter company. It stars Chizuru Ikewaki, Yoshihiko Hakamada, Tetsu Watanabe, Yosuke Saito, Aki Maeda and Tetsurō Tamba. This is Hiroyuki Morita’s first and only film so far as director for Studio Ghibli.

A spin-off of Whisper of the Heart, it was theatrically released in Japan on July 20, 2002 through Toho and in 2005 in the United States through Walt Disney Home Entertainment.[4] It received an Excellence Prize at the 2002 Japan Media Arts Festival. GKIDS re-issued the film on Blu-ray and DVD on January 16, 2018 under a new deal with Studio Ghibli.[5]{}

The first one was better than the second, but it was something watching cats..

Well, that’s the end of another anime watched list from me, Lee*
