Once again, there are new seiyuus coming and they’re in the shows which I didn’t watched. And again, I like how the veteran seiyuus are coming back just for old times’ sake
Comparing to the past years’ lists to 2013, there are lot of changes. Some of those who stick around for the three years tend to fall back and give way for the newcomers. But, just like last year, some of the veteran seiyuus are back.
I’m back after a four month hiatus. So now, I’ll start my comeback with a movie review of The Wolverine. I’ve reviewed the anime back in 2011 which is part of the Marvel anime project created by Madhouse. So, to be fair, I’ve decided to review the movie as well. The anime’s and the movie’s plot is based from the 4 part comic mini series written by Chris Claremont where Wolverine goes to Japan and meets Mariko. While the anime is decent, the movie really made it more entertaining as it connects the story with the X-Men 3: The Last Stand. Oh, and this movie seemed to throw out anything related to X-Men: Origins as if it never happened XD. Note: This movie is NOT an X-Men movie. Sure, Wolverine is a member of the X-Men but remember, he appeared before the debut of the X-Men.
CAUSE I FEEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLL! I CAN SHOW MY EVERYTHING TO YOOOUUUUUUUU!!!! Geez, this song is in my phone forever. Whether you like the song or not, admit it: it’s catchy! Though the PV itself very special, you can’t help but see how fast the guitarists play….and I had a feeling that the lead vocalist is cosplaying Shizuo of Durarara minus the shades.
As for the lyrics, asides the from the memetic chorus, it’s more of a Shinya vs. Shogo situation in which the latter taunts the former into looking for him. With the show ending, this is likely the case.
Finally, after 9 months of waiting, I finally watched Blood-C: The Last Dark. This movie received a Fantasia award and reached No # 10 in the Japanese box office. However, it got some mixed reviews from critics. But that doesn’t stop me from waiting it for long. And in the end, my high expectations on this movie went down the drain……. Warning: before you think this is some sort of rant post, just so you know, I am excited about this movie and you’ve seen how much I made a lot of posts about this movie.
The video presents Inori (though she looks more like Mana, Shu’s sister) falling down and meeting a blue-haired version of her. There’s a pixiv fanart out there which has Akane and Shinya as the pink-haired and blue-haired Inori respectively. And seeing that, you get the analogy that this song is all about their relationship.
And given by the recent events in the series, the lyrics really tell that Akane wants to help Shinya, who is falling out of his sense of duty. Given Shinya’s selfish and destructive reason for what he had done recently, he failed to realize that there’s one person who wants to help him and that’s Akane. Yeah, this sort of sounds like a romantic relationship. This is a very sad song and it fits perfectly to this series.
