366 Days of Anime School Uniforms: Day 234/366 King of Thorn

Day 234/366

King of Thorn the strong will survive!

I like these despite them having an ugly in your face school crest on the breast pocket. I love that the skirt matches the really cute bow tie with the red plaid. The jackets are simple but work well.

Overall: Sure.

chii’s Anime Snack of the Week: King of Thorn

"Medusa" is a mysterious illness which causes the body to petrify shortly after infection has suddenly broken out among the world. King of Thorn follows 160 chosen people who will be frozen until a cure could be found. Time passes and many of them wake up in a terrifying world filled with mysterious huge monsters that want nothing more than to make them dinner. It's time to escape the research center's underground and make it to the surface to see just what the world has become. Survival of the fittest.

One of the first victims of Medusa

Signing in to be frozen

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Positive Points

  • Beautiful
  • Action packed
  • Interesting enough story about a pandemic
  • Great characters

When I see this logo it always worries me

Time to decide what to do

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Negative Points

  • The end seemed rushed to explain what happened

Entering the freezing process

Time passes and the thorns appear

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why chii thinks you should watch it

If you love action and strange adventure where you aren't quite sure what's going on all the time this movie is for you. The characters are quite lovely as well. I love stories where pandemics have occurred and if you do too this one shall be a great treat to watch. It's not a zombie movie either. The movie is simply beautiful to look at. It was pretty hard for me to look away from it because of how awesome it looked. I'll be checking out the manga as I've heard that it is even better than the movie. (which people always say about manga but ehh)

Killer bat like creatures

Killer scary beasts

 

 

 

 

 

 

Escaped from the bats... now what?

I bet they wish they had shoes

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He always ends up her knight in shining armour

She ends up being a mommy figure for the boy

Tuesday Tally Week 7-8 February 15-28 Finishing Up and Catching Up

I spent most of these 2 weeks catching up with my long running anime and finishing off a lot of big series I had on the go. Added in a lot of movies here and there that I had been wanting to watch for quite some time now and some not so much. *Glares at Gundam Seed*

Cats with swords!

Boobs in Space







February  15-18

Gintama episodes 172-175

Z-mind, Project Blue SOS, and maybe Twin Signal OVA's will all be featured in a Snack of the Week post so look out for those.

Puss in Boots Movies 1-3

Overall: A delightful re-watch of the first followed by the other 2. Puss in Boots are great family movies that anyone can enjoy. It helps if you like cats a lot too I suppose.

Kiddy Grade Movies 1-3

Overall: Only really worth watching if you have seen the whole series before hand. Which is exactly what I thought about the Fate/stay night movie. Although if someone just wants some action with a decent enough plot this'll be fine too unlike the Fate/stay night movie where you pretty much have to have knowledge before watching what it's all about. I think I got more out of these movies having seen the series but it did cut out a lot of blaa blaa I found so I almost enjoyed the movies more than the series.

To the big sleep!

Probably my favourite shot from the movie








February  19-22

Naruto shipooden episodes 189-199, Bleach episodes 301-309, One Piece episodes 480-487, and Gintama episodes 176-192. Shounen madness! All caught up finally with the big 3 and almost finished Gintama which is my favourite of the 4 easily. Naruto finally got back to some story. One Piece had some crazy shit go down after building it up for like 50 episodes or something (probably less but I can't be bothered to check at this point) Bleach had some kick ass stuff happen with Gin that was way more interesting than anything that has happened with Aizen.

Touch episodes 49-89

King of Thorn Movie

Overall: Better than I expected it to be honestly. I saw the end coming a mile away but I was interested in this world so that kept me watching. I might pick up the manga someday because I hear that people liked it more than the movie but we'll see. We all know how I am at this point with picking up manga XD I really loved how it looked. I watched it right after Welcome to the Space Show so I wasn't expecting anything just as awesome visually as that movie was but it works out nicely. Kind of made me want to play Resident Evil 2 again.

Welcome to the Space Show Movie

Overall: <3 I expected awesome and I got awesome. Rare but it happens sometimes! The visuals were out of this world gorgeous! You know that tingly feeling you get when you are just so excited about what you are seeing because it is SO gosh darn pretty? I got that. The last time I had that feeling was when I watched Gundam 00 on my big tv in the basement. So people wanting some eye candy will not be disappointed with this movie. It's a little confusing plot wise at times especially towards the end but overall it's a really nice story about kids bonding and going TO SPACE. Oh how I would have killed to be one of these kids and go on such a great adventure!

I have the same way of thinking when woken up

*swoons*










February  23

Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Spiral Labyrinth episodes 1-28

Overall: I wanted to make my 2000th anime special to me much like I did for my 1000th anime. So what better of a choice could I have made than to finally watch one of the extra stories of my favourite anime of all time Legend of the Galactic Heroes. I gotta say I enjoyed the first 14 or so episodes the most since those featured Yang. When the Reinhard episodes came around 2 of his arcs were amazing but one of them was a complete snore fest that involved dueling for the nobles. The last 2 episodes were a link to the main series that made me almost want to re-start it up again and watch it. I will re-watch it eventually but I think my hands are full with the anime I have chosen to watch this year already. So here's to another 2000 anime!

Gintama being over is just like that feeling

These 2 are so precious









February  24-28

Gintama episodes 193-201

Overall: I'm sad that it is over but so happy that it's coming back in April. I'm rather glad that I marathoned it honestly because waiting for the awesome each week would have sucked. That's the only thing I'm not looking forward to about the next series.

Touch episodes 90-101

Overall: Who would have thought I would enjoy a baseball romance drama! I went in skeptical and came out rewarded and glad I'm not afraid to try new things even though I think they won't be good for me. Solid 8/10.

Touch Movies 1-5

Overall: Movies 1-3 were bad re-caps of the series honestly. I got a lot more out of watching the 101 episodes than those first 3 movies that sum it all up. Movies 4-5 were extra stories that were fun but still left us hanging.

Gundam Seed Movies 1-3

Overall: I kinda wish I just watched these instead of the series...

Astro fighter Sunred episode 50

Zenryoku Usagi episode 42

Here is Greenwood OVA

Overall: I said my piece here.

Wounded Man OVA

Overall: Boobs, sex, and violence.

Oishii!

Probably my favourite character








Fairy Tail episodes 20-67

Overall: I had been meaning to catch up with this for a long time now and since I caught up with all the other shounen I decided to include this one as well. It's a lovely combination of Naruto and One Piece for me honestly. It has the character love I have for One Piece mixed with the music love I have for Naruto. Great friends helping each other out as all go on a wonderful journey to accomplish their goals. Simple but oh so good. I love Happy and Plue!
