Final Fantasy: Distant Worlds & General Update

So, last Wednesday I managed to bag tickets for the Final Fantasy: Distant Worlds 30th Anniversary tour in London on 4th November.


I’m pretty psyched to go, more so because this will now be my third time attending this event. I attended in 2012 and 2014. So it will be definitely awesome to see Arnie Roth and Nobuo Uematsu yet again!

I do enjoy going to these events, it almost magical. All Final Fantasy fans in one place, some even cosplaying.

I am really hoping, that now this will be my third time that they play Final Fantasy IX: Melodies of Life. Final Fantasy IX was one of the first Final Fantasy games I played, then I worked my way backwards until Final Fantasy X came out. I have to admit I haven’t played any of the Final Fantasy’s since X-2, although I am planning to pick up Final Fantasy 15 at some point.

My ideal playlist would be as follows:

  • Melodies of Life (FFIX)
  • Eyes on me (FFVIII)
  • Vamo Alla Flamenco (FFIX)
  • Zanarkand (FFX)
  • Theme of Love (FFIV)
  • Dear Friends (FFV)
  • One Winged Angel (FFVII)
  • The Place I’ll Return to someday (FFIX)
  • Liberi Fatali (FFVIII)
  • Aerith’s Theme (FFVII)
  • Chocobo Melody
  • Victory Theme

If they played all of these songs, I can die a happy woman. Anyway – I will probably do a proper review of the event when I’ve actually been! If you are going come an say hello, I’ll be at the evening show in the stalls at seat J60!

In other news: I passed my driving test! Yay, and I’m getting a car on Sunday!

Also the ‘Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale’ is being released in UK Cinemas on 19 April 2017, so I intend to go watch that and review it. Hopefully I will also be going to see ‘Ghost in the Shell’ in the cinemas at some point which is released in UK cinemas on 30 March 2017.

This year is going to be exciting with all the awesome releases!

Masamune-kun’s No Revenge Anime Review

I have just finished watching Episode 12 of Masamune-Kun’s No Revenge.

I started watching this anime when it was released but soon I was too impatient to wait for a week between episodes so I immediately started reading the manga as well.

Masamune_EP1_S4

The story revolves around a High School boy called  Masamune Makabe who is hell bent on getting revenge on a girl who broke his heart when he was younger. We learn that as a child Masamune was chubby fellow who became friends with young girl called Aki Adagaki, their friendship was short lived however when Aki calls Masamune a ‘pigs foot’. Flash forward a few years and Masamune, now slim and attractive has been training for the past few years in order to take revenge on Aki! He calls this the ‘Dead or Love’ plan *Evil laugh*…

The plan basically revolves around him making Aki fall in love with him, and obviously who wouldn’t fall in love with him now he is super-hot, and mercilessly reject her.

Puberty done right

I really like the character dynamics in the anime, we have super tsundre Aki who is also known as the cruel princess who eats a massive amount of food on a day to basis and seems to stay super slim. We have Masamune pretending to be a yandere (kind of) whilst hatching his ‘what could go wrong’ plan, ‘Master’ or Yoshino, who is Aki’s maid who seems pretty much like an emotional robot who would kill you without thinking twice and Kojūrō who is a massive trap! We’re introduced to more characters as the series goes on but these are the initial characters that we get to see in the beginning of the series. Also on a side note Masamune has a mother who is basically loli, not sure how she gave birth to a child (two children actually) when she looks like one herself. Well done Masamune’s father! Good Job!

I think in the ideal word the story line is something that anyone would do if they could. Make themselves super sexy then go back to their first unrequited love and screw with them. Or is that just me?

If you read any further you will be subjected to spoilers.

Netflix Death Note Adaptation 

Scrolling through social media it has become apparent that Netflix will be making their own film of the well known manga Death Note.

Now, I’m not one to comment on the actual plot of Death Note I’ve never read it or watched the anime (I will get round to it), so I’m taking a full outsiders perspective of this.

Nekota no Koto ga Ki ni Natte Shikatanai Manga Review

I finally managed to finish this manga series last week. It’s amazing when you get latched onto a manga you suddenly find yourself zooming through the chapters and before you realise you have finished it.

I always get an empty feeling when I finish a manga, whether I enjoyed it or not – I just end up picking up another one to fill the void.

Originally I started reading this manga and dropped it, thinking, this is a bit weird. But I persevered and decided to pick it up again and I’m really glad I did.

To give you a quick synopsis of this manga before I review it in basic terms; girl moves school, girl meets boy, said boys face only appears as a cat to girl, girl finds it interesting and tries to investigate said boy and reasons behind this.

In more detailed terms: Mikiko a young girl transfers to a new school, she very rowdy and boisterous. Mikiko is introduced to Nekota, who is apparently the most good looking guy in the class, however Mikiko can’t actually see his true apperance because for some reason she doesn’t understand she can only see Nekota’s face as a cats. This intrigues Mikiko into getting to know the reason behind why she is the only one that sees Nekota this way and thus begins the weird friendship between Mikiko and Nekota.

Your Name Film Review

I can’t seem to concentrate on anything today! I have my driving test tomorrow, so I am super nervous and in order to calm my nerves I decided to watch ‘Your Name’ again.

I can’t get enough of this film, the first time I watched it was back in January and I think this is the quickest I’ve re-watched a film for the second time. So as I have now started a blog, I though ‘I should review Your Name’. Great idea, huh?

It’s really difficult to review a film that you don’t have anything bad to say about. To be honest I feel like the other reviews I have done have been super negative and I’m trying not to stray into doing that too much!

So without further ado, here is my review on the film ‘Your Name’.

ReLife Chapter 171 Review

I am reading a lot of manga at the moment, so reviewing all of them won’t be possible. However one of my favorites at the moment is ReLife, I think this is because it slightly reflects my life a little – I’m not a  shut in Otaku, I do have friends and a steady job  (trying to justify myself) however, I do feel the same way as some of the characters who are older in this series and relate to their feelings.

As I’ve only just started this blog, I thought reviewing each chapter would be immensely time consuming, so I’m just going to start from where it currently is with the English translations.

The most recent update came out yesterday (20/03/2017) which is Report 171 or Chapter 171: After the Rain.

If you haven’t read ReLife yet, I totally recommend it. I have been enjoying it so far and there are a lot of relevant themes and issues going on within this manga and isn’t just a run of the mill romance. I will also say, even though I refer to it as a manga it is in fact a webtoon.

So just a warning if you proceed any further there will be:

Wolf Children Film Review

I went to HMV and managed to bag myself the DVD for Wolf Children, I had been hearing about this film for a while now and hadn’t got the chance to watch it yet. One of the issues I had with this film is I’m not a massive fan of ‘furries’, but I thought I’d put my reservations aside and give it a go.

I watched the film in dub (I know, I’m super lazy), I am always skeptical about dubs unless they are Studio Ghibli films. The film isn’t a Ghibli film however it looks and feels like a Ghibli film, almost anyway. The dub wasn’t that bad, it is watchable at least.

So without further ado, I will warn you of spoilers ahead.

****SPOILERS AHEAD****
