YouTube

Like many people these days, I have become fixated on YouTube and its videos. I’d like to share a few of my favorite channels here!

Danisnotonfire (Dan Howell) and AmazingPhil (Phil Lester)

Yet another phangirl right here! My friend recently linked me to Dan’s “Anime Will Ruin Your Life” video and after that I couldn’t stop watching them. I do ship Phan, but I’m not a really big fan of it (a bit more minor, but I still like the pairing).

Various Yaoi Studios (DreaminYaoiStudio, RoyalYaoiStudio, SweetYaoiStudio, 「iBishie-Studio」, you get the idea)

Someday, I would really like to join a studio, but all of the editing programs I have right now are crap. I really enjoy all the AMV/MEPs that these groups get out and it’s cool to see everyone’s clips put together into one massive video. I’m forgetting a bunch of other studios I watch because that would take way to long to list!

PrettyGrumpyBear

Come to the Lair of the first publicly known super villain, Pretty Grumpy Bear! No, but really, this girl is more hilarious than she thinks she is. PGB mostly does Yandere Simulator videos, but she has also done a lot of Five Nights at Freddy’s theories that are really interesting. Support a minor YouTuber here!

CDawgVA (Connor Dawg, Voice Actor)

CDawgVA is a really talented voice actor! He recreates the voices of Sebastian (Black Butler), Kyoya (OHSHC), Claude (Black Butler), Shizuo (Durarara!!), Asgore (Undertale), Mettaton (Undertale), Tsukiyama (Tokyo Ghoul), and others. He also does a lot of videos with his friends CielStar and Nullify101 VA, whom I absolutely love.

Einshine

I really dunno, the guy is crazy, and it’s so entertaining to me. He used to do a lot of Minecraft videos but switched to anime one or two years ago. Shine got a million subscribers a month ago, yay! His artwork is done by Kat, his kawaii little assistant.

Honorable Mentions:

  • CUTLoveRx (No longer active 😦 )
  • nigahiga
  • NightcoreReality (Congrats on two million!)
  • TheFatRat
  • YandereDev

I wonder who else likes these guys too…

Hetalia: Axis Powers

hetalia-7-deadly-sins

Hetalia certainly has an interesting premise. All the countries of the world are represented as human boys and girls (though mostly boys) and they reenact the World Wars and other events in world history. I have to say, I definitely learned more from this show than any of my history classes. Some things, of course, didn’t happen at all, so it was easy to get confused between the accurate parts and the completely fake ones.

Unlike most shows, I decided to watch Hetalia with English dub. I started watching the first episode with subs, and it became extremely had to figure out who was saying what. I also get the enjoyment of the accents from the dubbed version. Each episode is 5 minutes long and it doesn’t take too long to watch all 50 episodes if you skip the logos and outro song.

Favorite character?

america-and-canada

America and Canada!

I honestly can’t choose between the two. Hidekaz Himaruya did such a good job stereotyping America as a hamburger loving, overconfident person that always took credit for everything (and he was cute!). But Canada was so adorable even though he was only in about 4 episodes. I feel so bad for him because no one notices him and his pet bear can’t even remember who he is. I wish I could jump through the screen and hug him!

Favorite ship?

usuk

USUK!

America and England are just so cute together ❤ . After all, England was the one who made little America become America! All of the flashbacks to the American Revolutionary War really hurt though. I also shipped GerIta (Germany X Italy) because it is really canon.

That’s all for today!

 

Mirai Nikki (The Future Diary)

Well I finished watching this recently and, honestly, I’m just gonna say 7/10.

The twenty episodes were great, 9/10, I couldn’t stop watching. But then, after SPOILER happened, I started getting really confused about what was happening. The whole time travel thing and “Yuno from the ___ word” got really mixed up and I didn’t understand the loops. Also, Murmur’s character didn’t make much sense to me. Did she want Deus to die so she could replace him? Were she and Yuno working together the entire time? I’ve given up on trying to tell.

Akise Aru

Akise Aru is easily my favorite character.

The whole thing about Yukki being a weak main character makes me think: Wouldn’t most people probably act like him if put into that situation? Though I really like what Yuno said to Yukki in the end, which I think was something alone the lines of “I would’ve been fine with anybody so as long as I could depend on them, and you would have loved anybody who would have protected you.“I feel like that’s really true, how it was purely chance that Yuno fell in love with Yukki and Yukki only reflected the feelings because she came to him in the first place. Oh, and I ship Yuki x Akise!

DOKI DOKI!

 

My Favorite Manga Gets an Anime!

So I was just casually browsing through MAL‘s list of upcoming anime and then…

Kiss Him Not Me

My reaction:

Surprise gif

KISS HIM, NOT ME IS GETTING AN ANIME!!!

Anyways, Watashi ga Motete Dousunda (Kiss Him, Not Me in English) is about fujoshi Kae Serinuma who goes into a state of depression after her favorite anime character dies and doesn’t come to school for a while. When she returns, she finds herself in a reverse harem with two of her classmates that she secretly ships, her senpai, and her kouhai (there’s also a bit of yuri when Nishina comes in!).

However, Kae would much rather see them in love with each other than with her.

A prince shoud be with a prince

Kiss Him, Not Me has been my favorite manga for a long time and I’ve always bought the newest volume right as it came out! I’m so excited to see the anime after reading the books over and over again! The hype begins!

 

 

Super Lovers

The last episode came out today, and since I haven’t posted about this before, here’s a quick review of Super Lovers.

First of all, the animation was really good. Especially Haru and Ren’s eyes. All the characters were attractive and nice to look at, though I think there were too many shiny backgrounds in every scene. Kind of like Ouran High School Host Club; whenever a character is showing an emotion the background goes all sparkly.

The main reason I watched Super Lovers is because of the plot line. My friend recommended it to me knowing I was a yaoi lover, so I naturally enjoyed the boy x boy in this show. The fact that they were brothers was only slightly bothersome since they’re not blood brothers.

Super Lovers

The opening and the ending song are pretty good ! Even though the first lyrics of the ending kinda sound like “Oh my God! Oh my knee!”

The next season is supposed to come out in January of 2017! Let’s see if it beats the second season of Attack on Titan!

Assassination Classroom

Since I just finished Assassination Classroom, I thought I might as well do a quick review.

I wanted to watch Assassination Classroom because I liked the plot line, but I found myself not really wanting the kids to kill Koro-sensei. And if one of the other assassins killed him, then the E class would go back to just being the End Class forever.

My favorite character by far was Karma. He was pretty much the highlight of the show for me. And of course I shipped Karma X Nagisa, how couldn’t I? >.<

Karmaep3

I’ll probably get around to watching the second season soon! Now off to watch Haikyuu!
