The Future Diary / Mirai Nikki (2011-2013) Anime Review

***StartOfLog***Here a review that I didn't thought i do Future Diary or Mirai Nikki.

I found out about this series by total accident by seeing this image on facebook.

So I thought to myself:"so she is like Lucy from Elfen Lied wow she must be brutal" and also thought they kinda look similar as well so i looked the anime up and found the Wikipedia page and I was intrigued about the concept (witch i 'll explain in a moment) then i found the English dub of it done by Funimation so i gave it a watch and now I'm here making this review.

Anime I've Gotten Into/Currently Watching: Fall 2013

Hello again. First off: Happy Halloween. I tried to find a General Zod costume in my size (specifically, the version with his battle armor from Man of Steel); but there weren't any. I ultimately just bought an Iron Patriot mask and a Captain America shirt to be a low-budget Iron Patriot. Second, I know my recap of The Heart of the Cards is behind, but I have taken the screencaps and I am in the process of writing the recap. Third: because of the workload I have in school, I will have to postpone the Halloween marathon. I will probably be recapping the Soul Eater episode "The Ultimate Paper Test" to deal with midterms coming up. It has a sort of Halloween theme to it; and it will probably be up in early November; kind of like how The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror sometimes airs then because of being preempted by the baseball playoffs. (note: This year's special was OK. Not quite as good as last year's, but standout bits where the opening guest-directed by Guillermo Del Toro, and the parody of the classic horror film Freaks).

For now, I will give my thoughts on some of the anime that I've started this fall. Both ones from the fall 2013 season and that I started this fall.

In the Making

Don't mind my comment on my last blog post. I totally got confused about which week I'm writing what post and announced the wrong post for this week. But hey, my professor did the same thing in class so no judgments! This week, I get to talk about a topic of interest related to this course. My choice then, is to explain some of the process work for my album cover assignment and the reason why I did so. This post may be long but it will have pictures so bear with me.

I decided to do a CD cover for an Anime soundtrack because 1) I love Anime and 2) I love the music. I also wanted to digitally paint something because the last time I actually finished a digital painting, was over 5 years ago. It was terrible, and is thankfully lost in the void that is my old, dead laptop. I wanted to make something I know I'd enjoy doing, as well as brush up my skills at the same time. I will thank my brother for letting me use his tablet until I get my new one soon enough. Really, it saved my life.

What is This? A CD Cover!

So it's finally done. Yep! I was going to upload it a few days ago when I finished, but there was some blog confusion. Anyways, in addition to this CD cover, I must submit an "Artist's Statement". It's a main explanation of my piece. It's a little text-heavy, so bear with me.

For this assignment, I decided to make an album cover for an Anime soundtrack. I did this for a few reasons. One reason is obviously because it's something I have interest in, something I love, and why not integrate a personal interest into a project? Another reason I decided to do this is because I've done enough manipulation in my grade 12 Photography class, I want to paint in Photoshop instead. I haven't done a lot of digital painting but I really enjoy doing so. I decided to do this project not only for class, as it is necessary, but to improve on my own skills. You can't get any better without practice. I actually did a blog post about some of my process work but I'll save describing that for my critique.

Capricious blogging germane to my avocations

I have constantly heard that the best way to remember new words is to actually use them, no matter what language you are speaking in. Therefore, in this post I will attempt to appropriately incorporate as many of our AP English vocabulary words into my post as possible. If you do not understand or remember some of the words I use, appropriate definitions may be found on the interwebs.

First of all, let me introduce the story that I will be talking about today: Mirai Nikki (Future Diary.)

Deadman Wonderland Review

A teenage boy is incarcerated in a notorious and deadly prison.

Deadman Wonderland is somewhat reminiscent of the hyperviolent OVAs that were constantly churned out in the 80s. The "horror" is in the atrocious acts of violence and physical damage inflicted onto the characters. At first it seemed scary, but as it continued it became less scary and more ridiculous and overkill-y.

The Future Diary

The Future Diary is licensed by Madman Entertainment, Funimation and Kaze UK.

One thing that horror fiction needs is a good motif. A common one over the years is humanities use of technology.

Mirai Nikki


Eh... so I did drop this earlier this year, but I picked it up again just because my old school friends that I met since it's holidays told me that it gets better later on.
