Code Geass is one of the best shows of all time. One of the show's best qualities is the awesome group of well written, interesting, exciting, and fun characters. In honor of that this article is about my ranking about all of the main and secondary characters as well as a few minor characters who were important to the plot. The following characters are ranked from worst to best.

37. Princess Euphemia
Being sweet is usually a great thing, but she acted so naïve and overly sweet that she barely felt like a real person. I didn't like her sibling relationship with Lelouch and I'm not a big fan of her romance with Suzaku.

36. Nina Einstein
She didn't add much in early episodes and after she met Euphemia she became freaky and remained unappealing throughout the show.

35. Rolo
His personality and his actions were hard to tolerate at times. I used to think he was the show's worst character, but his sacrifice for Lelouch helped.

There are lots of anime shows that have interesting plots, well written characters, and amazing animation. Out of all the anime shows that I've seen I think that Code Geass is the best. Code Geass is the best at several different categories.

Category # 1: Plot/Storylines

I've never seen a anime show that has a better plot than Code Geass. The first episode starts off interest and excitement and the show continues to be interesting throughout the seasons. The show's storylines involve brilliant debates between characters. Unlike other shows the heroes aren't completely heroic and the villains aren't pure evil. In fact some characters could be considered both a hero and a villain. Despite all of the questionale acts of justice the show doesn't feel mean spirited. The show is emotional and challenging. It took mutiliple viewings of the show to fully understand it. The more you watch it the smarter the shows seems. It has more complexity and depth than most shows. It has brilliantly written drama, action, and comedy.

After watching Naruto Shippuden I kinda got lost in my other anime’s so I decided to start watching Naruto from the VERY beginning. After getting half way through the first series I drew a picture of Naruto with nothing to go off Of except for my own memory. It took me about an hour to draw... mostly because I’m really bad with hands and I definitely could have done better on the headband. Just tell me what you think and I will try to make a better one “ Believe it!!!” XD. Tell me what I can do better and what I should change with my technique. I want to do my best and get better so that I can go to an amazing art school so that people with think I’m somebody and treat me like I am, because I will be. I hope you get what I’m saying. Sorry for rambling. TTYL.

2017 was a sequel heavy year interestingly enough for me so just saying yah my faves once again had amazing next seasons I thought i'd pay attention to the anime that premiered this year that didn't fall into the continuation section of what I watched. Well the top 3ish of each season for me anyway since i sure did power through/guiltily enjoy a lot of bad stuff and who honestly has the time right?

Winter: AKA i only really watched 3 non sequels


Acca 13 was a stylish calm anime about Jean going around giving evaluation to each of the sections of the uniquely bird shaped country Dowa he lives on while there's silent whispering about his past and how it connects to the next royal coronation and the dissatisfied sections of Dowa. All while they REEEEEEEEALLLY enjoy eating toast... I greatly enjoyed its slow pace and how it just seemed to smoothly integrate plot with Jean's job to give you a feel of the world and why the politics even matter at all, building up to end with not a bang but with the same calm demeanor it started with. Just a nice watch.

Hello, My name is *************. My Hobbies are [xxxxxxxxx]. I'm [Bleep] years old. And I, am a normal person, nothing exciting about me, or my life...

At least... That's what I'd LIKE to say...

"HAKASE!!!" A stern voice echoed from around the corner of the hall that I had just turned down, hoping to get away from that voice.

"Hold it there Playboy!" Another harsh voice came from in front of me.

"Oh jeez, not this again..." I thought to myself.

The voices came from two very suspiciously large men who claimed to be High school students. Well, they ARE high school students but they seem to have been in high school for MANY more years than they should have been...

"You're not getting away after Rejecting our princess you pathetic BASTARD!" boomed the so-called High schooler before me.

"It's only the second floor... I guess I'm gonna have to risk jumping out of the window or else I'll die for sure!" I kept mumbling solutions like that to myself, bouncing some other ideas around as well. But that was what I ultimately decided on. The Open window a few meters in front of the guy standing at...

Ayashi no Ceres is a anime drama show. The show does have some fans, but it seems to not be as popular as it deserves to be. This review is about why this obscure classic is worth checking out.

The Plot

The show is about a teenager named Aya who discovers that a magical woman named Aya is a part of Aya. Both Aya and Ceres want to move on to peaceful lives and they do get some help from 2 young guys named Toya and Yuuhi. However Aki (Aya's brother) has a dangerous person inside of him and Kagami (Aya's cousin) is willing to put Aya and Ceres' lives in danger for his master plan.

Ayashi no Ceres has a very interesting and unique plot. This is 1 of the most well written anime shows that I've ever seen. It has lots of impactful and well done emotional scenes. The show is exciting, emotional, realistic, and amazingly written. All of the show's main characters have well written storylines, especially Kagami. The show is too depressing at times, but that doesn't ruin the show's impressive writing.

K-On! is a anime slice of life show that stars 5 female teenagers who are in a band. The show has become quite popular with fans of anime.

The Plot

Ritsu decides to start a music band. She is joined by Mio, Tsumugi, and Yui. The 4 of them become close friends. Along the way a 5th girl named Azusa joins them. They start getting their music band ready as well as bonding with each other and playing around.

Similar to other slice of life anime shows K-On! lacks a real conflict. The show is mostly about the 5 main characters having small conflicts and having cute and amusing times together. Although the show may not be super exciting it's a pleasant show. The show is lighthearted and enjoyably cute. There's enough charming and adorable subplots to make the show's plot work.

The Characters

Yui is a friendly and amusingly goofy and loopy girl who plays guitar. Ritsu is the least likeable of the main characters, but she's okay. Mio is my favorite of the main characters. She has a good personality and she's a sympathetic, charming, and cute character. Tsumugi is a stylish and eccentric girl. Azusa is a good addition to the...

Yuru Yuri is a anime comedy show that stars 2 groups of middle school girls: the Amusement Club and the Student Council. The show has quite a few good characters.

5. Akari

Akari is the show's fake protagonist. The show pretends like it's about her, but she actually doesn't have a very prominent role. Her lack of screen time and plot relevance is 1 of the show's funniest running gags. There are several jokes about how small her role in the show is and all of those jokes are funny. Her role in the show is so small that I've actually forgotten about her.

4. Yui

Yui is the 1 member of the Amusement Club that isn't looney. She isn't as eccentric as the show's other characters. She serves as a good voice of reason character to Kyoko and the others. Also her friendship with Chinatsu is really cute even if it's meant for comedy.

3. Chinatsu

Chinatsu is a member of the Amusement Club that Kyoko has a crush on, but she has a crush on Yui. It leads to a lot of the show's cutest scenes. Chinatsu is a adorable character, but she's also crazy enough to fit into this wacky comedy show.

Lucy Heartfilia is the protagonist of Fairy Tail. She is a blonde haired girl who had rich parents, but now she has fun friends that she goes on adventures with.

Despite being the show's main star Lucy doesn't seem to be the show's most popular charactes. Natsu, Erza, and a few other characters tend to be more liked by the fans. Of course fans can dislike and like who they want, but I personally think that Lucy is the best character in Fairy Tail.

1 major reason why Lucy is the best character in Fairy Tail is that she's the most well written. Her storylines are far more complex and interesting than the other characters' storylines. Natsu and Gray pretty much stay the same throughout the show, but Lucy goes from being a wannabe hero to actually being a hero. She goes through lots of friendships and rivalries and learns so much.

Lucy may not seem as useful at solving conflicts as Natsu, Gray, and Erza, but she has the greatest power of all: a big heart. Lucy lives up to her corny last name by being the sweetest member of the team. She manages to solve conflicts with her big heart. For example she saved Loke's life in season 1 by using her...

in fairy tail, hiro literally brought back many characters alive like gajeel,makorov,gray,juvia and whatnot even ichiya and anna heartfilia....i was both happy and irritated. i like some of these characters and was extremely sad when i "thought" they were dead. but after some few chapters they were brought back alive with one reason or another.i was happy because they came back alive.but also thought " what and why did i feel sad for?" i felt foolish..
ok fine..but why did they leave out ultear??!! (she was quite an important character in the series) she wasnt exactly dead but her life span was fast forwarded making her old-and to an age where her death was nearing.why didnt they bring her back to her original young self when they could revive they dead character.......they could have found some reason to bring her back!!

The subject of conflict
{The problematic fave series i was going to continue but i legit have no time but wanted to semi finish this one since i already put a lot of effort into it}

I feel like this is the one that needs the most justification because I have posted more than once my distaste for the anime "Kokoro connect". I feel like the anime wastes a lot of the potential for character study by force feeding you their character outline, hurriedly building up drama,only for it to end in a too squeaky clean result with almost no stakes. and while I don't really mind the situations they get into ( in fact i love the idea of using switching bodies, mind reading, aging gone wonky etc to let the characters learn about each other) the way this happens is still pretty contrived. And I don't believe I'm being too harsh on judging the anime on it's character arcs since that is the main focus and attraction the anime is trying to give. But while I didn't like the show when I was finished I was haunted by a question. All the characters suffer from the aforementioned forced development and rushed resolution, Iori Nagase is no exception. So why do I like her?

Notes: The K-On! characters aren't created or owned by me. All credit goes to the creator (s), studios, and everybody else that made K-ON!. This is a story that I originally wrote for Fanfiction.net. I hope that you enjoy this story.

Mio was sleeping. She was wearing purple pants and a pink shirt. Mio got a text that woke her up. Azusa sent a text to Mio telling her that school was about to start! Mio had overslept. Mio put on her school clothes and ate a muffin. Mio hurried to school.

Mio ran to class which is something that she rarely does. Mio found Ritsu. Mio said "Ristu am I late?"

Ristu said "No."

Mio said "Thank goodness."

Ristu said "I'm joking. You're super late."

Mio said "Oh no."

Mio ran to her classroom. She opened the room's door gently, but she fell which caused lots of noise. Azusa helped Mio get up.

1 of Mio's teachers (Mr. Horigome) said "This is the first time you've been late."

Tamayura is a barely known, but wonderful anime show that needs more attention and love. This review is about why this amazing show is worth watching. The show ended with a 4 part film series.

The Plot

Tamayura is focused on Fuu Sawatari, a girl who loves taking pictures. Her late father was a photographer too. Fuu has a rather sad past due to losing her dad, but with the help of her 3 best friends (Kaoru Hanawa, Maon Sakurada, and Norie Okazaki) she gets the inspiration and optimism she needs to have a successful and happy life.

Tamayura is a amazing and inspiring anime show that shows and reminds people that life can be okay if you have people that care about you and you don't give up. It's a truly wonderful plot that's sweet natured without being too cute or too dark. It's hard to get a better plot than Tamayura.

The show is a slice of life which means it focuses on the lives of the main characters rather than some epic action or stuff like that. It's a serious, but lighthearted show. It actually has a fair amount of comedic scenes which are really funny.

The Third Plate
Season three of Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma faces a whole new challenge as Soma and the others go up against the the new head of the Totsuki Culinary Academy which follows the written works and manga by Yuto Tsukuda. The third season will air in Japan and come to everyone worldwide in October of 2017.

This season will be directed by Yoshitomo Yonetani and features animation by J.C. Staff. The series debuts on Japanese TV in October of 2017 and will be distributed and streamed to survives like Crunchyroll.

If you read the current manga, then you’ll definitely be excited about the upcoming season since it will try to follow as much of it as possible, I personally cannot wait to see it animated because it’ll reveal things that may have not made sense at first or just seeing all the wonderful dishes come to life.

'Can't fear your own world'
"This Article Contains Spoilers Took Place After bleach manga Left Off "

With four out of the seven previews out, I thought it may be time to gather all the scattered information together into one post.
First off, I would like to thank Missstormcaller, u/schneizel and LoN for providing translations and summaries and u/hypnodarkrai for providing the chapters. Without them we probably would have to rely on inaccurate summaries for years, like it was the case with Spirits are forever with you, which surprisingly turned out to be a well written book.
But now, without further ado, let's start with the information:
Title: Can't fear your own world
Author: Ryoga Narita

According to Narita, Kubo did provide information and details for the novel, which makes it canon. At least when it comes to the reveals.

Azashiro Kenpachi
Kenpachi Azashiro (アザ史郎 剣八, lit. Azashiro Kenpachi), formerly called Sōya Azashiro (アザ志郎宗谷, lit. Azashiro Sōya), is the former 8th Kenpachi of the Gotei 13 and the previous captain of the 11th Division. In order to gain the title of Kenpachi, he slayed the previous one, Kenpachi Kuruyashiki, with his Bankai. He gain this title for unclear reasons. It's also known that he started a rebellion within the Soul Society and was taken down by the Royal Guard. Since then, he was sentenced to Mūken, the lowest prison level within the Soul Society and his title given to his lieutenant.

Despite being the former Eleventh Division captain, he seems to be well aristocratic, dressing and acting in such a manner. It's been also mistaken that he was from the Kuchiki Clan because of such comments on his appearence and his mannerisms, something he has a tendency to deny on most occasions and something that annoys him to no end. He has his silky black hair, finely-combed, and it's held back with a golden hair clip that keeps his hair in an upright manner. He has two long bangs hanging down neatly from each side of his face. It's said that the hair clip is a...

*Hope and Wonder*

Watching and hiding

Behind a tree.

Hoping he doesn't

Notice me.

I see he's determined

To change his fate

I want to change it

Before it's too late.

They said I'm a failure.

My sister, cousin, and Dad.

But the thing I was lacking

Was something he had

At my first Chuunin exams,

Something I'll never forget.

He helped me change.

At least a little bit.

Sitting in my room

Thinking of that day.

Wondering 'When I see him next,

What am I going to say?'

Then I go to my bed,

Thinking 'When won't I flee?'

And wishing for the day

When he'll acknowledge me.

I was stupid, yet
Courageous in
Heading to face
Impending doom,
Going as weak as
Only a human can be.

Kind of funny, how
Unlikely enemies
Round up allies that,
Over time, become
Some of the best
And kindest people a
Kid could know
In this world.

I've gained a power
Some call 'dangerous'.

Some other being, a
Thing inside me,
Reeling with belief that
Our body will
Never be mine,
Grows strong inside.

Almost taking control,
Never alone, yet I
Don't let him for long.

Bright light can't
Release this
Atrocious being,
Violently fighting his
Eviction from my soul
I'll win in the end, I just know it.

Every Winter morning I think of you,
Missing the fuffilment of the icy black hole, that once you used to be my heart.
Every Snowflake that falls from the frosted heavens reminds me of those sweet and special moments I spent with you.
My body aches for your warm, but icy embrace
My eyes yearn to see your smilling face
And now my heart now sucocmbs to the icy icy pit of loneliness.
Now every step I take, leaves behind a trail of frost and ice. Marking my lonesome presence.
For I wish for one day I can be with you again my love,
just to inhale your calming scent,
to be wrapped in your arms,
To be warm again.
It's so cold here without you.
Every Summer, every Spring, every Autumn feels like the icy kiss of Winter.
When the wind blows, and nips my nose, I don't say it's Jack Frost, but it's you my chilly soulmate.
For when the tiny crystals that fall from the sky and lands on my lashes, I know it's you wiping away my icy and crystal tears.

Your face haunts me.
Your eyes pierce my soul,
They look right through me,
Reading my thoughts.

You smile paralyzes me.
Your laugh controls me.
So full of malice,
But i am not scared.

You make me feel safe,
Even thoug you hurt others.
You stand so tall,
Looking down on me.

You act as if you hate me,
But i know you do not.
Deep, really deep down,
I am your whole world.

I chose to go down the path of fight

But instead I went down the path of light.

Her auburn hair, her dimpled cheeks

Her smile never gave me creeps.

It brought me comfort as it made her shine.

Her eyes were ones that were very wide.

Her glowing gray orbs showed the way

Down that path that I will betray.

Once it ended, I looked up to her.

Her crying tears made her vision blur.

I asked if she was scared, it seemed rather odd.

She reached out to me and said "I'm not."

It all made sense, then and there.

I had a heart, which was never spared.

I left her that day, bewildered one as it is.

I'll never forget her, the one who was not afraid.

The one who wanted me to stay.
