Warning, Spoilers ahead for Logan. You are warned!
I think I should discuss just what type of anime I watch so you know what reviews you could expect to appear on our blog. My husband has slightly different tastes so he will post later about what he prefers.
The type of anime I usually favor must have fantasy, some kind of romance, adventure, ecchi, and at least some fan service. It’s not the only type I watch, but an anime with those elements is highly likely to catch my interest. I like an even amount of dialogue and action. Too much action can get boring and so can too much dialogue (unless it’s a slice of life). My favorite anime tend to have two main characters, one male and female working together. I also love good strong friendships within an anime. An anime has to pull me in with characters I can relate to and who bond with each other through out the series. It makes a moment of drama that much more powerful.
That doesn’t mean it’s the only type of anime I watch, however. There are a few that are a bit off the beaten path of my usual viewing. Attack on Titan is a big one. It’s definitely not a genre I watch hardly at all but this one was a rare that pulled me in. There’s also a few slice of life anime I happen to like and my most favorite right now is Masamune-Kun’s Revenge. OMG. You need to watch it if you haven’t. I adore Masamune. He’s a bit narcissistic but it’s adorable. I am open to watching anime out of my usual comfort zone but there is one thing I always must have and that’s a happy ending. I like my happy endings damn it. When I finish an anime, I wanna be crying tears of happiness! Not really, but you get where I’m going with this.
Now I should mention what kind of characters I tend to favor in any anime I watch. Most of the time he will have either all or at least one of these qualities: Hot temper, pervert, intelligent, introvert, skilled fighter and confident. Character’s that are my absolute favorites have these traits. Natsu of Fairy Tail, Meliodas of The Seven Deadly Sins, Vash from Trigun, Ed from Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, etc. I mentioned I’m playing Persona 5, so feel free to comment which character you think is probably my favorite. LOL
When I’m watching an anime, there’s categories I personally grade them on.
- The story
- Character depth (1 dimensional vs multi-dimensional)
- Animation quality
- Art style
- Intros and outros
- Fillers….ugh. Fillers.
The same goes for the manga genres I read. I do not read slice of life mangas though. I prefer those in animes only. I am currently reading Fairy Tail, The Seven Deadly Sins, Boruto, and Noragami (although that one hasn’t updated in months -_-). When I catch up with Gintama, I might pick up the manga but Im going to cheat and start where the last episode or story arc ended. Lol If you think I might miss something substantial by doing that, please let me know and I’ll just read the whole thing. I really love the characters and the story, so I definitely don’t want to miss anything important!
I do not read any American comics. I read some Spider-man several years ago and watched Superman, Batman, and Spiderman cartoons but that’s about it. My favorite super hero IS Superman though. I do love my Superman. There’s more to that story, but I’ll talk about that some other time. I do still watch some of the DC animations since they’re pretty decent but don’t ask me to remember any of it. LOL This would be my husband Cameron’s expertise. He knows a lot more about Marvel and DC than I do! When it comes to movies however, I do watch Marvel and DC movies. I have been very displeased with the DC movies, however (don’t even get me started on Man of Steel. I get mad just thinking about it). Marvel has been nailing it of course. Deadpool was awesome and so has every other Marvel movie out there. I’d say Deadpool, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Avenger Movies, and Ant-Man are my favorite ones so far. I look forward to Deadpool 2 and Volume 2 of GOTG. Thor Ragnorok looks absolutely amazing. There’s just so many awesome Marvel movies coming out! I can’t wait to discuss trailers and review the movies once we’ve seen them!
Although anime tends to be the majority of my viewing, there’s plenty other things I watch and like. There’s no particular genre I go for. It either entertains me or it doesn’t. I’m not as judgmental with movies unless it’s based off a novel I’ve read (*cough* twilight *cough*). God knows I could talk forever about the Harry Potter movies (I own them all!). Which reminds me, I did recently watch Fantastic Beasts so I think I’ll definitely give some kind of review on my thoughts on that.
I kind of strayed off anime but I thought I should throw in what else we watch and read! We look forward to giving you more content to enjoy! We recently set up our MyPatreon page to help get our business funded so please be sure to check that out and share! We can use all the support we can get it!
