The government is developing an artificial Pandora program for the girls that aren’t compatible with the Stigmata. What could possibly go wrong?
What did you watch and why? This is the second season of Freezing and as I selected it for my A to Z Anime Challenge I dived straight in, even despite my mixed feelings from season one. I’m looking forward to seeing if any of my concerns have been addressed, however, obviously this was made before my review so how would they know?
What’s it about? A select group of students are sent to a top secret research facility in Alaska. There the government has been attempting to develop artificial Pandora enabling them to turn half the world population into weapons to fight the Nova. To begin with a series of battles take place to assess the strength of the artificial Pandora and they are easily defeated by the real Pandora.
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.
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.
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.
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…
