Even if the Japanese script makes more sense in some areas, I still prefer FMA's English Dub.
When it comes to anime, one of the biggest debates that every anime fan or Otaku have to answer is English dubbing or subbing.
As someone who's a big fan of anime, I can certainly understand where both sides are coming from.
The fans who prefer Subbed anime are usually fans who prefer to hear it in its original language because they think its more natural and thus, can feel the emotions the characters are going though, much better. Or that it sounds better.
The fans who prefer English Dubbed anime, like me, are people who either want to hear what the anime sounds like in a language they can understand and speak, the original Japanese voices don't do it for them, or the story makes more sense in English. Or just like the first one, they think it sounds better. I personally prefer watching anime that's dubbed in English, for several reasons:

1. I'm used to watching anime in dubbed languages, so it feels more close to home.

If you read my previous articles, then you know that I'm actually Hungarian and not native speaker of English. However, I much prefer watching shows/movies in their native language (English), than in...

Fairy Tail: 100 Year Quest
If you thought Fairy Tail was over, then you better think again. The series might have wrapped last year thanks to its creator Hiro Mashima, but the artist has brought the magical title back.

Yes, Fairy Tail’s much-wanted sequel is here, and fans are freaking out over the debut.

For those out of the loops, Fairy Tail is making a return this week, and it will bring lots of familiar faces with it. Thanks to Mashima, Fairy Tail: 100 Year Quest will begin its publication in Weekly Shonen Magazine under Kodansha Comics. The sequel picks up right where Fairy Tail’s original series ended, and readers are eager to see where things go.

The sequel made its debut in Japan earlier today as Weekly Shonen Magazine shared its 34th issue on July 15 abroad. So far, there is no word on when the sequel will be translated for an official U.S. release, but details about the sequel have their way online.

According to reports, the first chapter of Fairy Tail: 100 Year Quest begins with a big initiation. It seems a trio of mages were scouted to join Natsu’s guild, but Laxus winds up scaring two of them away. As for the third, the girl named Touka...

Teen Titans and Teen Titans Go.
Terra Strong voice actor/actress who played Raven said that the company will bring back Teen Titans Original for a season 6. But a catch is people have to support Teen Titans Go Movie. Meaning it has to do well in the Movie theaters. Or no original Teen Titans season 6 will not happen. Terra Strong said that is what the company told her. So support Teen Titans Go to the Movies in the Movie theater. I don't see why people wanna hate on Teen Titans Go. I was at Bookman's store before looking at the comics. And they had Teen Titans Babies comics. When they were babies. And comics called Titans when they became adults. With NightWing. So all Teen Titans Go is when the original Teen Titans Teenagers were younger. Should not hate on that at all people. Teen Titans Go is just a when the Titans were younger. And goofy acting. So no need to hate on Teen Titans Go. Check out the link where i found my proof at. ----> https://nerdist.com/teen-titans-animated-series-might-return-but-theres-a-catch/

Persona 5 The Animation.
Persona 5 The Animation Review.
I was so excited for Persona 5 Anime to come out based on the video game. Cause other Persona Anime did really good based on the video games. Than i started judging the P5 Anime badly, which i don't usually do an Anime like that right off the back. But than i learned that like other Persona Anime i seen and played, there not always gonna be like the Video Games. And there gonna be different. Than i started learning to like this Anime for what it is. Though it could be a little more flashy as the Video Game is. But all in all i give the Persona 5 Anime a 8.5/10 I really did like the P5 Day Breakers OVA Episode for being exactly like the video game though. Cause that part is based on a Mementos Mashima side mission. Sorry for any bad spelling here. We all make mistakes.

Fullmetal Alchemist Live Action Movie.
So i watched the Live action Fullmetal Alchemist Movie on Netflix with a friend. IT is a good movie. I liked how it stayed true to the FMA/Brotherhood story. And Edward Elric the actor is too tall looking. But other than that,the live action FMA Movie is spot on. Glad they did not fully mess up with this movie. Hope they make another one.

I feel that Netflix and Warner brothers did a good job on this movie. People out there in the world need to stop comparing Anime live actions to the episodes. It's like how Marvel and DC Movies change and is not similar to the comics and cartoons sometimes. And the fans are like that was so unexpected and cool. Yet Anime,Manga and Vocaloid fans freak out when Anime changes live action movies a little from the original series. And fans of Anime and Manga need to calm down. And stop trying to ruin the good stuff we get that is live action Anime Movies. So Anime/manga fans gotta give credit where credit is due. The Movie was entertaining. Sure some parts where changed a little. And cut out. But it still a great series none the less.

Lelouch Lamperouge is the star of Code Geass and C. C.'s one of the most important characters in the show. The two of them have a important relationship that affects both of their lives greatly, but they haven't become a couple yet.

Shipping is a really common thing for anime shows. Code Geass has plenty of interesting ships, but I think that LelouchxC2 is the show's best shipping. Lelouch and Shirley are cute together, but Shirley's incredibly sweet personality is probably not the best choice for the dangerous Lelouch.

I think that Lelouch and C. C. are pretty much perfect for each other. They're pretty much equally flawed due to all the immoral stuff they chose to do. Both of them are near the same level of awesomeness. They both have a harsh, but heroic personality that's loveable and awesome instead of unlikeable and lame.

Another reason that Lelouch and C. C. belong together is that they have helped each other more than anybody else has. C. C. gave Lelouch his geass power and was his most supportive and helpful ally. Lelouch treated C. C. with more care than previous people she met and he made her want to continue living her life.

Katsura Hoshino the creator of D.Gray-Man.
so we did get D.Gray-Man Hallow and the series on going in Dub. And the Manga on going as well. So anything is possible. I pray for Katsura Hoshino the creator of D.Gray-Man's health to be better than it ever was before. Not just for this Anime/Manga series. But because she is a human being like us. And i hate to see anyone die of a sickness for no reason really. Sickness comes to healthy people who don't deserve it. And sometimes unhealthy people who let their body go to wast seem to last longer than some healthy people. World isn't fair at times. It's the cold harsh reality we live in sometimes. But i pray things will go well for her. And you all. You're welcome.

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



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...

**SPOILER ALERT**
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.
