Kampfer Short Review

Sure it has a LOT of fan service and ecchi moments but it was enjoyable you'll just have to forgive its flaws to fully enjoyed it. I think I would have a negative review on this if I have followed it weekly. I really like the character designs but I hate that the animation was sloppy so often times the character's appearance is not that appealing. As for the story it was good for my expectation but you'll have to forgive that its predictable. The ending in episode 11 is left open and I kinda like to know what will happen next since it felt that it have been cut short and yet they wasted the last episode, sigh. I expect this show to suck totally but I given it a chance and I was rewarded. For the music and bgm it's mediocre I never really liked the OP and ED. The plus of the series is its characters I liked them since you can't find those characters usually on other anime. My favorite character would be Shizuku I didn't expect a student council president to be that aggressive and also the character of Akane because even though being a librarian her kampfer self speaks rudely. Another plus is the voice actors that voiced the characters they surprisingly fit their characters and I can't imagine the likes of Yui Horie voicing the foul-mouthed Akane, Inoue Maria also voicing the male Natsuru, Noto Mamiko and Nana muzuki voicing a weird stuff animal. Overall, it was enjoyable but you'll have to adjust your expectations to a very low level and you'll have to forgive the cliché story and the sloppy animation.

Until then…

Saya no Uta review

Rating A-

I liked Saya no Uta. The story was much better and interesting than that of games such as Bazooka Cafe or Come See Me Tonight. However, it was also its flaw. The game spent too much of its short playing time on the two main characters, which left little room to develop the other characters, especially the psycho doctor and Saya's "father". By time the story reached its climax, I was left wondering whether I was playing a thriller game or a paranormal one. Yea sure the characters aren't saints, but it could've been much better if the occult side was developed much more, because it was the occult references that gave the thriller aspects of the story its bite.

For me, the best part of the story was when the truth began to unravel and Saya's nature was being disclosed to the player. The investigation of the secret cellar was its high point, as well as the moment when the doctor destroys the strange artifacts Ougai left behind. That scene just sent messages of "Danger" but unfortunately, this was not sufficiently continued to the end of the story.

I could say that Saya no Uta is a rather twisted tale of how people adjust to their mental state. Clearly, the protagonist is insane. As he said, Saya became the last vestige of sanity that remained, and I doubt that any of us would react differently if we found ourselves in the same situation. The story is in itself, insane. But of course, in an insane world, the only sane way to understand is to join in the insanity.

The Ero scenes weren't anything special. I didn't have any real interest in Saya's nakedness because I've seen better ero scenes in other games. However, I must say that even the ero scenes of this game is full of insanity. That, coupled with the overall atmosphere of the game would get into your head if you stick with it for a while.

Saya no Uta is a short game. You could play it in one sitting. It is not as memorable as the games I gave an A+ rating, but as far as enjoyment factor goes, it's quite an entertaining ride. Play this if you want a twisted tale, or if you just want something to burn 3-4 hours of your time. In any case, this is worth a try.

Bride of the water god

Ohh yeah! ;D

Human sacrifice and then being the wife of a kid-god (by day).

I'd do the girl if I could though.

Kaicho wa Maid-sama - 02


This time we’re having a school festival and class 2-2 is still not able to submit a decent proposal to Misa-chan and as expected she was on demon mode again and keeps on rejecting every proposal by the guys of class 2-2. If I were a guy I would have gotten pissed at Misaki because of her being biased with the girls. Sure I like Misa-chan ruling the school with an iron fist because it keeps the hard-headed guys in line but if she won’t listen to them and if she keeps that man-hater attitude then most of the school population won’t listen to her. Thank goodness she was able to overcome that in this episode because of manager Satsuki’s speech, Honoka and of course Usui’s help. Speaking of Honoka, I really find her irritating sometimes in the manga because she acts all cute and nice but sometimes dark Honoka’s comments are quiet harsh but I got to admit that because of her criticizing Misaki, Misaki was able to improve her character.

J.C. Staff sure gave us a lot of Misaki eye candy in this episode and I expect more in the future episodes. There are a lot of Misaki moe moe moments just like the previous episodes so I can’t blame the three idiots for visiting the Café Latte every day.

Overall I would say that I’ve enjoyed yet again this episode of Maid-sama and I think it is a really good adaptation so far since it is very loyal to the manga with just a little addition to it to improve the material from the manga but I do think that the manga version of Misaki is hotter than the anime version. I wonder if they would continue to animate this a chapter for an episode because if that would continue I can see season 2 coming.

Oh btw I got carried away so I’ve uploaded more screen shots than usual XD..

Until then…
