Synopsis
.
.
The story follows Hiroshi Kuzumi, a 16-year-old student who has just moved to the seemingly serene village of Jogamachi. Nestled in the mountains far away from the city, the village is divided by a river that separates old Jogamachi from new Jogamachi. Young Hiroshi soon discovers that the village is ancient as well as mysterious traditions and customs have been kept alive over the ages. Although a bit bewildered by the new environment, Hiroshi begins to settle into his new life. While he has never been the type to win any popularity contests, he quickly earns the affection of his classmates. That is with the exception of aloof class president, Nemuru Kushinada, whose only words to Hiroshi are a warning to stay away from old part of town. It is there that terror and mystery await him.

My review!!!

The Anime can be watched on MyAnimeList and AnimeSeason...

MyAnimeList: Ookami Kakushi


I am not sure how I feel about this one... It has a LOT of mystery. There is a new town and an old town and it seems like there is a lot of strife between them... Some of the mystery is starting to clear up by the end of the 5th episode but there is still so much I don't understand.

I ended up watching all the way to the end before I wrote this review.. And I have to say I wish there was a second season.... I don't know if there will be but I'm sure it would be amazing to learn more about these wonderful new wolves... No I'm not going into detail and giving away why I say that... But if they are real... if I lived in this anime... I would have those oranges around me all the time! Not because I'd be scared but because I wouldn't want them to be harmed because of some sweet smell I possibly gave off without knowing it!

The town of Jogamachi... it sounds like a world all it's own... where creatures some would call "Demi-Gods" live and people can live beside them with minimal worry... I say that because let's face it... Living beside anything supernatural be it good or bad is bound to bring some danger with it! I don't think it could be avoided no matter how hard either side tried... What matters is how they deal with it after it has shown it's face!

And toward the end of the anime the Godmen of Jogamachi have started to figure that out for themselves... They are starting to adjust to a more modern way of dealing with those who break their laws... Laws that were put in place to keep "Fallen" alive and safe... Not elaborating much on that part either! If I did that why would you even try watching it... I'd give too much away!!!

Speaking of giving it away... I think it would be a good time.... Let's Rate it!!!

On a scale of 1 to 10 with ten being a "Perfect-Must-Watch" rating I give this...

As you can see... Even though it has so much mystery I really think highly of this little number! I know I mostly have ratings that are high but I think I have just been really lucky this year with my Roulette List I made at the beginning of the year... I really could have had either way happen... I'm very happy it went so good so far! I hope it continues into next year too... I will make the new list in the last week of December so if you have any you want me to review please let me know before then! As for this one.. I think you should check it out and if you really like it I think you should consider buying it to support the artist!
I think I'll end the review on that note!

As always... Thanx for reading my review!!!
Hope you have a supernatural day!

Summories, my "Job" and a Thank you!

Hello everyone who reads my posts… I thought today would be a great day to update you all on what the heck is going on in my mind! Now don’t get scared away or anything… After all… It isn’t much different from the time we have already spent together. So, without further ado, let’s get into my thoughts and see how far down this rabbit hole goes!

First of all Let’s talk Blog…. I know you have liked what I was doing for a while now for those of you who come here often… Thank you so much for that! But for those of you who are new then I’m sure you don’t know what you think yet! Let me break down the blog for you a bit… 

There are a lot of tabs and pages attached to this blog so it can get confusing and that is probably putting it lightly! There are three parts to the blog that are the most important. First is this part…. The Main-Blog. Here is where I put all my reviews and any random things that don’t involve YouTube videos. The reviews are anime and manga reviews and always happen on Wednesday. They alternate as to which type will be posted and I announce what is to come in the next month at the end of every month

One review a week isn’t so bad… I know this… So, it’s hard to see how this is insanity at all… But think about it this way… I must watch or read 5 chapters or episodes before I can write the review each week, plus keep up with everything else I post. Now that still doesn’t sound crazy… But let’s start adding things, shall we?

Each month on top of 4 or 5 reviews I also have to plan out 8 set posts on specific topics that I have to put time into planning out. There are two music or musing posts, two throwback posts, two lesson posts, a reliv post, and the review announcement for the coming month. Now I know this still doesn’t sound like a lot but let’s add in that I am a stay at home mother of three with a husband who is as needy as my youngest is! I do all the chores and almost all the cooking. And let’s also not forget that this is only one of the three most important parts to the blog! I still do things on the other two each month but this is by far the hardest of the three.

So now let’s look at the easiest of the three! The Photo-Blog! On this blog I post one Photo every month. I've posted an example here for you. Sometimes it takes up a slot for the Monday through Friday posts I do but not always! No matter what day it falls on I have to post ONE picture on the last day of the month! This month it’s a Saturday. I know... I know... Still no worse than someone working 9-5 right! But I'm not done yet!

Next we have the Vlog-Blog! This one requires some research but not much and it is where any posts that have any type of video in it are posted. Yes the research is me searching out the video or videos I plan on using in the post. And again I know it still doesn't sound worse than someone with a normal job... But we are just getting started!

All of that stuff together is equal to an average normal job... So here is the rest of the stuff all in one lump sum... They are my social media accounts used to promote my work. That is a very general term since one is a poetry site that I post my work on and others are photo sites. Now then here is why my life is crazy like Alice's rabbit hole! On top of this "job" I hold a second "Job" and it is a full time one as well. No I'm not going to say mother is my job here...

I am a YouTube Creator. What this means is that I plan out, travel to the scene, record, edit, and post videos all while trying to keep up with the first job I described! And just for fun lets add in how I am trying to write a book too. Yes you read that right, I'm also an author.

I don't know how I find time to bring kids to things Let alone sleep!!! But somehow... Sleep, food Karate are figured into this too. Not to mention my time I need for my sanity to not disappear! So with all this in mind I wanted to thank those of you who stick around and put up with me missing posts or taking vacations... 

Thank you very very much from the bottom of my heart!

I couldn't do this without you because I would surly have given up by now! I think I'll end this post here... You have more than enough to read and double that to think about I'm sure. Plus you have a life of your own you are trying to live too! Hugs to you all... Remember, you can do it!

As always... Thanx for reading my post!
Hope you have a fun and happy day!

Synopsis
.
.

One morning, Naho Takamiya receives a letter in the mail claiming to be from herself 10 years in the future. The letter reveals a series of events that are supposed to take place that day. At first, Naho thinks it's just a prank; but when the letter mentions a transfer student named Kakeru Naruse, who really ends up transferring into her class later that day, she is forced to believe in its contents.

As Naho continues to read the letter, her future self mentions several regrets, urging Naho to take the right decisions now. Somehow these regrets all seem to be connected to Kakeru, and with the burden of the knowledge that the boy wouldn't be with her and her friends in the future, will Naho be able to make the perfect choices that will alter what seems to be fate?

You can read the manga here...


My review!!!

This one actually hit home with me a LOT more than I thought it would. You see I have .... no no no... I can't get ahead of myself! Lets start with talking about this little diddy of a Manga! And a doozie of one it is!

Time travel!!!

Not the person traveling but an object... in this case it was a letter... Written 10 years in the future and sent to change what happens... Yeah I know you can get all that info from reading the synopsis but it goes deeper than that... This touches on paradox theories too!

One is that changing the past changes the future and could actually make it so at some point you don't feel the need to go back... So if that happens then how would you have gone back and changed anything? The second one is that you change the past creating a second parallel world for the new future to play out in. The future you that tried to change the past still exists because their past didn't change but they hope you have a better life with the new changes in your future. Both are equally intriguing.

No matter what paradox is real they both hold interesting possible outcomes right? This anime hasn't revealed what one it's using by chapter 5... Actually I got so wrapped up in it that I read all the way to chapter 7 before I realized What chapter I was on and I still didn't know what paradox it was using... Though I have a clue to it I can't say for sure. I stopped reading to write this. So that means that this review is based on 7 chapters instead of the standard 5 I usually use.. Thanx for understanding!!!

Now then... All we know at this point is that our future little miss wants to make Kakeru happy and save him... I wonder if or how she will know that it worked... since if it changes her world then she would never have known the other world but if it creates a parallel one then she wouldn't ever find out how it turned out. Right? I mean that's how you think it would go too right? I bet like me you can't wait to find out!

Know what else I bet you can't wait to find out??? My Rating!!!

On a scale of 1 to 10 with ten being a "Perfect-Must-Read" rating I give this...

YUP!!! a total home run! I feel like even if this one ends with a million questions it will be an amazing one to read... That could be my feelings because of what I started to say in the beginning... I believe in Parallel worlds and that Deja vu is really just what you feel when you and a you in a parallel world have done the same thing in the same situation... And on the rare occasion where you can tell what will happen before it does that means there were a few times you did the same thing... The stronger the feeling and the more you remember... That all means it has happened Lots of times because each time it would make a bigger ripple across the worlds! We have no idea if these theories are true or not but it's fun to imagine!Just my feelings on it though... That's all for now!

As always... Thanx for reading my review!
Hope you have a wonderfully mysterious and revealing day!!!

Info, Explanations and a Request!


So this month has been a kind of screwy time but we got this… Here is what’s on my mind and why it’s gotten wacky!

My darling Ziva just spend 7 of the last 8 weeks with her front right leg in a cast…. Yeah and to boot she turns 6 months old on Wednesday! Do you have any idea how hard it was to keep a puppy still for that long!!!! No running!!! Ugh! Anyhow… Last week was so crazy because she was out of her cast for the first time in forever and wouldn’t sit still but moving would have been bad because she could have re-injured it! It was a nightmare! Technically this is a little over half way through the second week with no cast so yeah… Now then… As if that wasn’t enough to deal with… She will be allowed to run around today because tomorrow is a full two weeks with no cast. But then tomorrow she goes to get spayed so again she will be stuck not moving… This time at least it will be easier in the beginning. She will be hurting so she won’t wanna run… Not that I want her hurting.

You would think that was enough to make anyone crazy but I also have major stress over the fact that I have to get my photography done completely by August of 2018… Yup… Less than a year! I’m freaking out here!!! So because of that I spent a lot of time and banged out a whole unit in a week… I have submitted everything… Now I wait for grades while working on my last one… Then I am finished photography school! To which I have to say a HUGE thanx to NYIP! I don’t think any other school would have worked for me! Thanx soooo much!

Now to make up for it a little bit I tried a new format for the reviews that I have coming up. Yes some of them are done ahead of time so I never have to worry that I didn’t do a review. Plus if I have the next months finished I can pick anything off the list as long as it is there and I can get it done too! It takes the stress of doing reviews and gets rid of it completely! I love that I started doing this!!!

Oh speaking of reviews… I am going to be getting the list for next year together over the next month or two so please submit any names you want me to review along with if it is an anime or manga and I will add them in! Thanx a bunch to you all!!! Any review spots that I don’t have filled by the end of November will be filled with the roulette like I did with this years names.

I think that is enough information for today… I don’t really wanna overload myself or any of you with trying to remember it so I’ll stop here!

As always… Thanx for reading my posts!

Hope you have an amazing and productive day!

Anime

Synopsis
.
.
A super exciting action comedy starring the inmates and guards of the world's most formidable prison.

My review!!!


The Anime can be watched on both Crunchyroll and FUNimation

Crunchyroll: Nanbaka
FUNimation: Nanbaka

Ahhh where to begin with this one... First i suppose I will start with... I really didn't think it was anything special after the first episode... So be warned about that... Give it a minimum of 4 episodes. After the forth episode I was hooked!

So a little snippet for ya... It starts off seeming like the daily lives of prisoners who want to escape prison... And guards who are just not all there... I got a LOT of laughs out of it though! My son and I were having fun trying to figure out which of the four main prisoners was our favorite! 

It does turn out they all have interesting back stories though... and as the episodes go on we start to learn them... The 4th episode started the tournament scenes... and those lasted a while... Yeah I kinda watched a bit farther than 5... I wanted to know how the matches played out lol.

Well... I have to say it tugs at your heart a bit... Almost as much as it makes you laugh! By tug at your heart I don't mean the "I want to cry" type of tug... More like the "I feel bad for you" tugging you get when you empathize with a character. I really did feel bad for all the prisoners we learned back stories to... Especially the two who were experimented on. Yeah a little mad science goin on!


The above four are our prisoners... The picture is a little inaccurate from what I have seen so far... I've only seen their number on 25's tongue... 15 does have it on his cheek but 69 has it on his arm and 11 has one "1" on the back of each hand so I don't know why they all are on the tongue here... also 25's is a black line not a white glittery thing like there but everything else looks right. Although.... Those numbers in their mouth could also be candy.

It's hard to tell though... Oh and you will also notice that everything... And I mean EVERYTHING... from people to buildings and pets sparkle at random times! it's quite odd for a prison but it adds to the surprise factor I think.

Speaking of surprise... Want to know how surprised I was to give this rating...

On a scale of 1-10 with ten being a "Perfect-Must-Watch" rating I give this...
.
.
.
9
.
.
.
Yeah... The fact that I didn't want to stop watching to write this says a lot... the fact that I was this into it... Sooooo shocking... Especially since after the first episode I swore it was going to get like a 3 or something.

Anyhow... I really think this is one you should check out. It seems like it has a perfect balance going so far. I can't wait to see what happens next!

As always... Thanx for reading my review!
Have a friendly fun day!

Synopsis
.
.
Seventeen-year-old Mugi Awaya and Hanabi Yasuraoka appear to be the ideal couple. They are both pretty popular, and they seem to suit each other well. However, outsiders don't know of the secret they share. Both Mugi and Hanabi have hopeless crushes on someone else, and they are only dating each other to soothe their loneliness. Mugi is in love with Akane Minagawa, a young teacher who used to be his home tutor. Hanabi is also in love with a teacher, a young man who has been a family friend since she was little. In each other, they find a place where they can grieve for the ones they cannot have, and they share physical intimacy driven by loneliness. Will things stay like this for them forever?


You can read the manga here...



My review!!!

So this one was not exactly an easy read... but not exactly a hard read either... I have to say I was very confused when Hanabi called her crush Onii-san because that is brother but the description clearly says family friend. I don't know which one is right at the moment though since it isn't cleared up in the first 5 chapters... So for arguments sake I am going to say they are both right... After all you can easily claim someone is family when you are really close to them! And when you do that you often call them by the new family name like Mother, Father, brother, or sister... Even sometimes aunty!!

So I am going to keep that in mind as I continue reading this little number! I'm also thinking of buying it to support the Mangaka! If that's something you're interested in then follow the link!!! Check it out....

Amazon: Scum's Wish

Barnes and Noble: Scum's Wish

It's kind of crazy... The idea they came up with to ease their loneliness is one I could see me doing if I was in their place! But even knowing that I feel kind of sad for them because I know they can't be happy with things how they are! I can't wait to read more and find out how it turns out... I hope they both either tell their crush how they feel or develop feelings for each other and work it out... I don't know what is in store for them but I'm excited to find out!!!

Speaking of finding out... I bet you want to find out how I rated this little gem!

On a scale of 1 to 10 with ten being a "Perfect-Must-Read" rating I give this...
.

8
.
.
.
Yup... an 8! it has so much potential to be a long, twisted, confusing, emotional, fun and enjoyable manga if only it unfolds well... Because it has so many volumes I am going to risk it all and ASSUME that it did unfold well... Of course that also means I really need to read it to make sure I didn't risk it all for nothing!!! I am almost 100 percent sure it dud though so it is all good!

Anyway... If you have ever fallen in love with someone else and watched as they found happiness with another then I think this book will be an interesting read for you because they took the route that most people don't! I'm going to end this one on that note so you are left wondering what I mean!

As always... Thanx for reading my review!
Hope you have a wonderfully romantic day!
