Freezing (Season One)

With extra-dimensional beings hell bent on the destruction of humanity, only the enhanced warriors known as Pandoras can stop them.

What did you watch and why? I first took notice of Freezing shortly after discovering Highschool of the Dead but was unable to get hold of a copy so I moved on. Now that I am working through my A to Z Anime Challenge and have it readily available, I had no excuse. It’s also worth noting at this point that Freezing is not a prequel to Disney’s Frozen. I don’t recommend that anyone make that mistake.

What’s it about? The world is under attack by extra-dimensional beings known as the Nova. They appear without warning and cause massive damage and loss of life. Humanity’s only hope is the Pandoras, girls augmented with special genetic tissue called Stigmata that enables them to fight with superhuman power and speed. They are accompanied by Limiters, boys with the ability to freeze their opponents and nullify the Nova’s freezing attack.

Make it Harem Anime!!!!

A little while back I was tagged in a Make it Anime Tag post. You can see my original responses here – Make it Anime! It was a lot of fun trying to come up with a book, movie, and TV series that could be converted to an anime. I liked all of my picks, however, the most fun idea was the gender-flipped version of Predator, which I am now giving the working title of Magical Girls versus Predator.

So, why are we here again. Well, would you believe it, but I’ve been tagged once more. This time I need to thank Dewbond for the nomination and this time around, I’ve decided to make it a little more… I’m going to say fun, but you might want to call it something else. Not only am I going to pick a book, movie, and TV series to transform into an anime, but I’m going to transform them into a harem anime!

As before, here are the rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog post.
  • Choose 1 Book, Movie and TV show of your choice that you think could work as an anime. (A series of books or movies is allowed e.g. Lord of the Rings, Hunger Games)
    • If you want to pick more than 1 from each section that’s fine. Or if you can’t think of one for a specific category that’s fine also.
  • Explain why you think your choices could work as an anime. Maybe the advent of animation would enhance it, maybe the different anime genres could help expand and improve the story. Just go crazy with it.
  • Link back to the original post (this post) so I can read people’s suggestions, I’d love to read everyone’s ideas.
  • Include Make it Anime in your tags so everyone including myself can find them all easily.
  • Nominate around 5-10 bloggers.

I hope you’re ready for this!

El Cazador de la Bruja (Season One)

Bounties, Brujas, and Besties!

What did you watch and why? This was my latest pick for my A to Z Anime Challenge, completing the letter E. I had not heard of El Cazador de la Bruja in any capacity before jumping in. It’s also the longest series I’ve watched in the challenge coming in at twenty-six episodes.

What’s it about? Nadie is a bounty hunter and she’s closing in on the big one, a young girl with no memory of her past, but she’s not the only one. Ellis’ quiet and simple life is thrown into turmoil when the bounty hunters close in. Desperate to claim the bounty, some are prepared to do whatever it takes.

Dragonar Academy (Season One)

Ash Blake had been waiting longer than most for his dragon to be born. With a Star Brand unlike any others, it shouldn’t have come as a surprise that his dragon would be a bit different, but no one would have expected Eco!

What did you watch and why? For the letter D in my A to Z Anime Challenge, I watched Dragonar Academy. Admittedly, this wasn’t a total shot in the dark as I had already read the first six volumes of the manga in 2018. As I hadn’t seen the anime and was enjoying the manga, I thought it seemed like an ideal opportunity to watch it.

What’s it about? Set in a fantasy world with a mix of magic and technology, a small nation is responsible for the world’s dragons. Unable to breed themselves, dragons are implanted into worthy humans who will later become their masters. One such worthy human, Ash Blake has been waiting a long time for his dragon to be born, but nobody expected this…

3 Days 3 Quotes Tag (Day 3)

Well, here we are. It’s the third and final day of the 3 Days 3 Quotes tag, so thanks again to Yomu for nominating me. I enjoyed searching through quotes and trying to find ones that spoke to me.

If you missed the earlier quotes, don’t worry. Here are the links to Day 1 and Day 2.

So, this should be interesting as I like the quote and the meaning, although I think it has a small flaw, but I’ll get to that in a minute.

“Even a pawn can take down a King.”

That was the lovely Rias Gremory from High School DxD giving Issei some encouragement. Now, I love the sentiment of the statement. It gives hope to the lowest ranked piece in a game of chess that they can defeat the highest ranked piece. Who doesn’t want to think that they can achieve greatness from such a humble position.

So, that’s great, but if you know anything about chess, you’ll know that the pawn cannot take down the king alone. I don’t think there is any position that it could do it alone.

Who knows, maybe Rias was saying that you also need to rely on the team and their individual strengths. Maybe, I’m just reading too much into it. Anyhow, it’s a cool quote and that’s all that matters.

Stop overthinking it and just be cool.

Nomination

So, this is my final nomination for the tag and I choose… Alexie the Great at Alex’s Arena. Again, no pressure to keep it going, but it would be great if it did. There are far too many awesome quotes to stop now.

And that’s that. I hope you enjoyed my selection of quotes, basically, never give up, remain positive, and don’t be afraid to take on the mightiest of opponents. Thanks for reading.
