My review!!!

I don't really like this one... I will start of with saying that. This is because I think this boy is too intense... I think he was so obsessed he became psychotic. When she doesn't want him he forces his feelings on her going just shy of raping her to show her he loves her but that isn't love... I could have understood if it was that and then he had every intention of giving up but that wasn't how it was. He had no intention of letting her go!
Now that I have gotten that out of the way... Let me say it is a very short manga... Two chapters short to be exact! For that fact I was very grateful! I can usually handle this kind of manga ok so I don't quite know what it was about it that rubbed me the wrong way but it really didn't sit well with me.

With that being said... Let's find out my rating, shall we?

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

I think this is the lowest I have ever ranked an anime or manga. There just wasn't enough to the story... It was like I could only get how obsessed and possessive he was and nothing else... And by the end I felt I had just learned how to inflict Stockholm syndrome on someone!

Not that I would ever do that but I can't help but think about how it might not be a good thing to have so available to the public... But hay... That's just my opinion. Then again you are reading this for my opinion so yeah. I think I'll end the post here because I can't think of anything other than "it has good artwork" to say that is nice. So yeah... Not my favorite.

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

Synopsis
.
.
Disheartened with judo, college student Haruki Bando was invited by his childhood friend Kazuma Hashimoto to create "BREAKERS", an unprecedented boys' cheerleading team. Those that came to join all were very characteristic in nature: argumentative Mizoguchi, voracious Ton, frivolous Kansai boys Gen and Ichiro, and Sho who has cheerleading experience.


My review!!!

The Anime can be watched on FUNimation...


Here is what they had to say about it...

Story

Haruki Bandou was born into a family of Judo marital artists and expected to continue the family legacy. But he’s about to trade Judo for…cheerleading?! When his childhood friend Kazuma Hashimoto invites him to join the BREAKERS, a male cheerleading club, Haru finds himself amongst a quirky group of boys. Can this squad of slightly odd and cute members make a breakthrough in college athletics?

So let me just start with WOW... If you like cheerleading then this is an anime for you!

As a former cheerleader I can say they did very good with this one... They teach you bits of cheer knowledge as the episodes go by. I have to say the idea of an all boys squad is an amazing idea! I was young when I cheered but I remember there were NO boys that wanted to do it. This was about 13 or so years ago though so it may have changed since then!

Even so... I think it would have been amazing to see... And the way they came up with the squad's name was great too... Most of the time the squad is named after the team they cheer for but these boys weren't cheering for a team... They were just doing it as a club! That alone is an amazing idea!

Football season standing in the cold winds of fall was not nice in a tiny little skirt! Just sayin!

Anyhow... These boys....


Yes them... They were the start of the whole squad... Well actually the first few episodes were all about them getting the squad together and the fifth one was their debut... They did a routine at the school festival! It rocked and they looked like they were having so much fun too!

Each of these boys has things they want to break through, remake, or overcome... And they all want to break through the bad stereotypes of make cheerleaders! I love that!!! In the first 5 episodes at least two of these young men end up doing just that too! Not telling you who though!

But... Now it's time to rate it

On a scale of 1 to 10 with ten being a "Perfect-Must-Watch" rating I give this...
.
.
.
10
.
.
.
Yup this one got the elusive 10 out of 10! I feel like no matter how they end it this one will have been so worth the watch! How can you not be happy with guys doing something unusual to destroy stereotypes! Not to mention they have fun with it and you get your slice of life style too.... I feel like there were amazing dynamic to the members and each person brought so much to the squad!

I can't wait to see how this one ends... I am soooo gonna love this! Hope you got curious about this one since it is not a normal idea for an anime... At least not one I have seen yet! Reminds me a bit of how different "Yuri!! On ice" is too... That is another one I can't wait to review! Not next time but someday!
Anyhow... I'm gonna end this one here!

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

Synopsis
.

Being the eldest child of a large family, Yuki Machida was forced to become the responsible one of her many siblings at a very young age. Accustomed to making sacrifices for them, she is all too familiar with disappointment and the pain of suppressing her true feelings.

Though expecting nothing to become of them, Machida becomes the basketball club manager in order to be closer to her crush. But at the start of the new school year, Shou Naruse joins the team. He is extremely talented... and has taken an interest in Machida. Stoic-faced and cold, she is unfazed by his advances, despite how relentless he is when it comes to winning her love—from kissing her with no warning to asking for permission to grope her. Keeping her cool and focusing on basketball becomes a much more difficult task when Naruse makes no effort to conceal his desires.

My review!!!

So let me start of by saying the first thought that ran through my head was "OMG another romance" because lately it seems like I am seeing a lot of those types of manga. But then I thought "wait... It's basketball related so it can't be all bad. You see I love Kuroko's basketball... both the anime and the manga! So I really was hoping beyond hope that this one would be as good as that one.

I wasn't too far off either. It was cute and corny yet sweet and sassy

Yup that's right... I still liked it even though it was just another romance... And that is because it wasn't just another... It had a take on romance I don't see all that often so I really liked the way it was playing out... I liked it enough so that I really am dying to get back to reading it... so with that in mind lets cut to the chase... Lets check out what I bet you have been waiting for! My Rating!!!

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

10
.
.

Yup... it's a 10!!! Way to go my friend!!! It isn't easy to  get a romance to rank this high with me... Most of the time I only rank 9 and on occasion it is 10... This one hit the high marks because of how the romance played out so far... I know there are a LOT more chapters too so I can't wait to see what happens with them now that manager-chan has admitted she likes Naruse in her mind... will she finally act like she likes him instead of trying to hide it by saying no she doesn't? I am going to go find out now so if I remember to I will write an update... Though I will probably forget that I wrote I would.
Anyway... time to go!!!

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

Synopsis
.

In the witches' tradition, when a practitioner turns 15, they must become independent and leave their home to study witchcraft. Makoto Kowata is one such apprentice witch who leaves her parents' home in Yokohama in pursuit of knowledge and training. Along with her companion Chito, a black cat familiar, they embark on a journey to Aomori, a region favored by witches due to its abundance of nature and affinity with magic. They begin their new life by living with Makoto's second cousins, Kei Kuramoto and his little sister Chinatsu.

While Makoto may seem to be attending high school like any other teenager, her whimsical and eccentric involvement with witchcraft sets her apart from others her age. From her encounter with an anthropomorphic dog fortune teller to the peculiar magic training she receives from her older sister Akane, Makoto's peaceful everyday life is filled with the idiosyncrasies of witchcraft that she shares with her friends and family.

My Review!!!

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

MyAnimeList: Flying Witch

My first thoughts were "Oh wow this really reminding me of 'Kiki's delivery service' but this girl is older than her I think" and it really was like that in some ways. It was similar enough to make me think about it but not enough that I didn't want to watch it. To be honest I haven't finished my 5 episodes right now but that isn't because I didn't want to finish them... Life just kinda jumped out in front of me and got in the way! I am so going to finish this one though!

But before that... I think I should rate what I've watched! Here we go...

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

9
.
.

Yes I can say without a doubt that this is a 9 even though I haven't even watched my 5 episodes! That's because I absolutely loved Kiki's delivery service so the fact that this reminds me of that show says it all for me!!!

Haven't you ever had a show you love that you would watch over and over again? well now I feel like I have two I can do that with! It's so nice to have choices in favorite shows lol. Who knows... Maybe there will be one like that for you!!! Good luck finding it!!! Anyhow I think I should end this here...

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

Mai Kasai was part of a group of girls that brutally bullied fellow classmate Shino during middle school. Though she never directly bullied Shino, she watched her friends do the torture that forced Shino to transfer schools. Due to her father's work transfer, Mai transfers from her high school in Tokyo to a school in the countryside.

Although Mai thinks she can have a fairly easy school life by manipulating the classroom hierarchy, her days are ruined when she finds out Shino is her new classmate. Now with a passion for revenge, Shino and Mai switch places, with the former becoming the mastermind, and the latter becoming the victim in bullying hell.




My review!!!

The manga this week can be found on MangaPark...

So let's jump right into this one.... It moves slow!!! I get the concept of backstory and all but come on... I didn't get to the present day until the end of the 5 chapters I have to read for these reviews! How can I really say anything about it... but to be honest there aren't a lot of chapters... The total number of chapters is 7 as of right now, I believe. This being said i really can't wait to figure out what will happen next... Her opinion of bullying will be severely challenged when it is her that is receiving the bullying so I wonder how it will change... For the better or for the worse???

I have to say that the fact she didn't actively bully anyone makes this kinda sucky... I mean she didn't help them either so it could also be seen as karma coming back around and biting her in the a**... Though this will depend on how bad the bullying gets for our young little one... If it is too harsh then it will be overkill on the payback and if it is under done then it won't seem like she got enough of a punishment. I think this one will be better as it goes along.

And with that being said... I think it is time to get on with it too!

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

7

In total I think that once this one starts really moving it will be a good one... as of right now I don't like it all that much.... I gave it a 7 because of the possibility that it shows... There is so much potential here that I literally want to read it just to see where it goes! And on that note I think I'm going to go too!

As always... Thanx for reading my reviews!
Hope you have a peaceful and loving day!
