Small Fandom Yaoi Part Two: Giotto x Tsuna – Hitman Reborn

Wow, I haven’t done one of these posts in a while. I figured it was time to do something for the yaoi fans out there again! Maybe I might be able to introduce you to a new pairing you can get hooked on! This is a very unconventional pairing and many may not like it, but I find it intriguing.

This is the pairing of Giotto and Tsuna from Hitman Reborn!

I know what many of you are saying, a relationship between them is not possible! And some are even questioning my reasoning for writing this post, but strangely, I love this pairing.
Don’t knock it until you try it!

Sadly, the only way I can get my jollies regarding this pairing is through fanart and fanfiction. There aren’t many (if any) doujinshi written about them as far as I know.

In much of the fanfiction I have read, they are mostly Alternate Universe (AU)-based. The plots of these fics generally cover Tsuna and Giotto being blood brothers who eventually end up in an incestuous relationship. I haven’t read one yet where Giotto was anything but the seme (it would definitely put me off if he were the uke, I mean would that even seem right to you?)
However, there are some AU-based fanfics where Tsuna meets Giotto for the first time and they aren’t related at all. But most of these fics portray Giotto as the perverted, tsundere seme that enjoys seeing our adorable little Tsuna cry.
The canon-verse based fics tend to make convenient use of the concept of time-travel. The mode of time-travel varies depending on the different plot lines, but the outcome generally remains the same: Tsuna goes back in time, meets Giotto face-to-face and love eventually blooms.
That was very watered down and bland compared to the stories I’ve read, but don’t let that stop you! This pairing is awesome and there are a few great fanfic authors who have done the pairing justice.

Until next time!

Fall Anime 2015: One Punch Man

Hi guys! I haven’t been back for a while, sorry! This is the first blog of the year. I am a terrible blogger when it comes to finding time. This Fall we have a serious line-up of new anime! And a lot of them look good!!
Today I’m going to talk about one that I recently got into…One Punch Man!
I was first introduced to this anime through a Facebook post my friend put up about the fight between the main character and a ninja and I was sold!
This anime is pure gold! It is hilarious and has a pretty decent story line despite the many comic moments in it.
So, the story is about this guy named Saitama who couldn’t find work anywhere. He applied and got rejected so many times, he did not feel life worth living and walked the streets as if in a trance.
On the way home, a crab monster appeared in front of him after having killed many people. It was going to kill him off, but it didn’t because he said Saitama had the same dead look to his eyes that he did. While he spared our main character, he was on his way to find and kill this kid with a butt-shaped chin that had drawn on him while he was asleep.
Saitama comes across the kid and decides he’s going to save him.
After defeating the monster, Saitama decides he will give up on trying to get a job and will become a hero for fun.

As he fights new monsters, he continually defeats them with only one punch. Thus the name of the show.
I love this anime. At first I thought it was going to be less than impressive, and it certainly does have many gag anime elements, but the action in the anime was surprising. I was really not expecting One Punch Man to be as epic as they have made it.
These are a few pictures showing some moments of hilarity for me in the anime:

**side note, though it would have been extremely funny, the first and second photos are from unrelated scenes…
One of my favorite fights was the one Saitama had with the ninja in episode three. If you haven’t seen it, go and watch it, that episode is HILARIOUS!
I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a new fall anime to watch (if you haven’t already started this one)!
Till next time, Otaku no minna, mata ne!

A New Futuristic Anime: Aldnoah Zero

ALDNOAH.ZERO_

Okay, so I felt I needed to finally talk about this anime. Sorry for being gone for 10,000 years, but I have gotten really busy lately. But enough about me. It’s time to talk about the new season of a show that I have gotten completely hooked on, and that is Aldnoah Zero.

For all you otaku out there who aren’t really into mecha anime, this is another one, but I still urge you to give this a try. It has mechas in it, but in my opinion, the plot does not make them the focal point. There is fighting and characters do die, but trust me, it is well worth the watch. For everyone who loves politics, there is a whole lot of that in here too!

On to the plot…

It is set in the future and humans have colonized Mars. However, the Martians have been there for a long time, so at the start of the story, we are dealing with 3rd or 4th generation Martians (maybe even a longer period than that) because they have established their own legends and working political structure. They have found a power called Aldnoah, which only those of the royal line could have full control over and for normal people to be able to use this power, someone in the royal family must bestow this power upon them. Likewise, a person of royal lineage could also take this power away from them. The Martians and people of Earth (in here called “Terrans” like Trinity Blood), have developed a sort of hatred toward each other and so tensions are always high when they have to have dealings between the planets. But there are some, like the Princess of Mars that want to create a lasting peace between them and start a line of tourism, and beneficial travel agreements between the planets.

Now that the stage is set, the story (after explaining all that) basically starts with these high school kids (like many anime) who are supposed to work crowd control for the coming arrival of the Princess of Mars as an ambassador for peace. However, things go awry when a faction of rebels attack the Princess’ convoy and kills her in the middle of the street using nuclear weaponry. Earth is blamed for the attack as a whole and the Knights of Mars collectively come down to Earth to destroy all opposition and retake the land for themselves.

The main character (and my favorite character) Kaizuka Inaho, is basically a quiet kid, but his battle strategies are unequaled in effectiveness. He is the reason Earth begins winning battles against the highly advanced technology in the Martians’ possession.

This is also the first time I have seen an anime featuring my hometown, New Orleans, in it even for the short period of time it was in there. ^_^

I can’t say anymore without completely spoiling it for you guys, so I’ll stop here. But trust me when I say things get real later on. I highly recommend this anime and if you haven’t started watching it, there is already a second season, so it’s time to catch up! ^_^

Sakura Matou: Fate/Stay Night

**This blog was submitted to OtakuHakkyou via the Facebook Anime Club – Otaku Madness. One of the members was kind enough to contribute and I hope you all enjoy the article! ^_^

Sakura Matou (born Sakura Tohsaka) from the Fate series is in my opinion, the character in all of anime with the most tragic back-story.

1454545_839790782732295_6688966492847660291_n

She was born as the second child into the Tohsaka family of Mages and Magecraft can only be passed to one heir in a given family. Since she wasn’t needed in her own family her father at the age of 8 gave her to the Matou family because their blood has become too impure of Mage blood. Unknown to him nor the rest of the Tohsaka family her adoptive grandfather Zouken Matou had kept her in a pit of his Crest Worms which violated her from head to toe, inside and out (and everywhere in between…) several hours every day, even using her body as a breeding pit all in the efforts to strengthen her magical powers.

As her “education” continued her body was experimented on, her meals poisoned, and was attempted to be killed numerous times. During all of this, her privileged older sister never tried to visit her, nor even acknowledges her existence. As she grew up, her adoptive older brother, who has no magical powers and despises her for being the “heir to the family” begins abusing her mentally, physically, and sexually.

He beats, rapes, and tortures her repeatedly over several years until her brother and one of his former friends gets into a fight, injuring him. After getting in trouble for injuring the boy her brother orders her to take care of him until he recovers instead of doing it himself. She shows up at his house every morning to wake him up, make him breakfast, clean up, ect. To her amazement however, he is genuinely grateful to her for her treatment, unlike her brother and grandfather who are cruel to her, he treats her better than her own family.

After he recovers from his injuries, she doesn’t stop going to his house each morning, she continues to occasionally cook/clean but since he’s able bodied again they playfully fight over who gets to cook that day. These little morning trips are her little glimmers of happiness in an otherwise dreadful life of misery, torment, and rape via human and inhuman sources. Her brother begins to catch on that she is still going to his house even though she no longer needs to, and he tells her to stop, she refuses, and he beats and rapes her even more frequently.

But she never stops, enduring whatever punishment her brother has in store for her she keeps going to him, because he’s her sole source of happiness. Until one day, that privileged sister of hers who at school never even acknowledges her as her sister begins to steal him from her. Her sister who never tried to save her, never even wanting to be her sister, is now encroaching on her only saving grace in this world.

ANIME: The Past,Present and Future!

This is a blog my friend did. I thought it was really well done and wanted to share it with my Hakkyou followers! ^_^

Anime in it’s purest and even goriest forms has been an integral part of American otaku lives for the last 20+ years. Looking back at all the anime i’ve personally watched, i can say that the “golden age” of anime in America started in 1996. However if you go back farther into the very early 90’s you’ll find the first anime series to make it to the states. Who can forget shows like samurai pizza cats,Voltron and Battle of the planets! these shows took young kids like me by storm with their new look and amazing take on action scenes and really paved the way for a lot of what is considered “Golden Age Anime”. The “golden age” really started on cartoon network with a small little program block called Toonami, which took kids by storm. Every day from 4-6 we would all tune in on cartoon network and watch…
