    IMO the ova sucked for the most part. Though the actual anime should be good if the manga's anything to go by.

    I am not a big fan of the cast choice:
    Kanae Itõ and Hana Kana they are starting to get sore to my ears, and rest is ok...

    That shit is insanely hilarious and since im a type moon anime follower, its perfect for me, i know all the characters too which it helps...

    Still rewatching Shiki as i can, up to ep 7, these bd rips look nothing short of fantastic...
    The wonders a 5.1 soundtrack would do to this anime...

    Shiki:

    Fifth Deceit:
    It continues where it left last week on Tooru's room, Natsuno thinks everything was a dream and Megumi is only haunting his dreams, but as it seems all was far from a dream and everything was real, Megumi has been there watching Natsumo all the time...
    We now have a confirmation of what is the real cause of the deaths, and it seems after the body dies, they return to haunt on the living and possible take some sort of revenge...
    This needs to be further explored and we don’t know how much of their conscience remains, but Megumi seemed to be well aware of everything...

    Every thing about this anime continues to impress, the remarkable animation, especially when Megumi shows up, the scene where she is crawling from under the closet, there is a huge contrast between the colorful characters and the washed out background colors and the animation noise used, this makes an impressive scene and the mood changes completely, the music is as good as in every episode...
    Sixt Skull:
    The epidemic continues to consume the villager’s lives while the doctor is unable to do anything...
    This ep there were no vampire apparition, other than showing a scene of Megumi's recent past...
    Sunako continues to visit the priest, her involvement in the town is still unexplained thus far, but she should at least be aware of what is happening...
    Further down in town someone got the death he had coming for him, a miserable death and no one cares or notices him, and I now wonder what will happen, will he disappear forever or does he still have a role to play...
    In the meanwhile, Natsuno who has been haunted by Megumi all the time started an investigation of his own and is close to the truth now...
    Further up in the hill, two kids are also investigating something they saw close to the mansion, but they are not alone...

    What will happen next??
    Seventh Killing Spirit:
    This episode digs deeper into the Risen theory and it proves itself real as we see Masao inside his coffin and then everything that happened prior to his death flashes through him, he really had an agonizing death after being "violated" many time over and then he is explained of what he has turned into and how to survive from now on...
    back in town the Doctor confronts the Priest about the real truth who in turn was shocked...
    The following day the kids go dig some graves for fun or to see what they find, or not...
    Now let's see how will they deal with the situation now, and how the Risen will react to it...

    Type-B otaku are basically moetards.
    Type-A otaku are basically non-moetards (evatards, guntards etc.).

    I am probably closer to Type B, but I enjoy shows from both camps.

    I'm type-"forgets what the anime's about after half a year".
    I finally got around around to watching carnival phantasm. The only thing I could remember about Tsukihime was that there's a guy who cuts chairs, like a boss.

    Im the opposite, for some reason i can clearly remember most everything about the over 1000 anime i have watched, if someone talks about something about an anime i have watched, i can keep track of it...

    im quite in the middle, if the anime i watch was good or even great,
    i will remember those and keep track of it

    but if the anime was just ok, i tend to forgot the storyline, but can keep track of the characters.


    just saw episode 1 of mayo chiki, that is quite amusing lol

    I tend only to remember the best bits of each anime, and then when I rewatch them I go "oh this happened? :S"

    My bad, hit the wrong button...

    Back to Shiki and my bloging...

    Eight Night:
    This episode, gives a dangerous aura, I can feel the tension and the danger increasing at every minute...
    Natsuno finally dug the grave only to see the confirmation of his worst fears, a little after, they have a close encounter with one of the "Risen" and manage to survive...
    Latter on Natsuno house is visited by a very strange girl who fiercely demands to meet him as she has urgent business with him, this girl is not normal and has a very dangerous aura around her and a very strong presence...

    The animation and the art keep a very high level, and the music is about perfect, without this soundtrack, Shiki would never have this much impact because imagery only tell half the story, the music is what sets the mood and ambiance…

    Ninth Coffin:
    The risen have gotten more aggressive after Osaki interference, and thus have made him pay the price, the day walker, he seems not bound by any vampire rules, Tatsumi infiltrated the clinic to take the old women back only to feed all of the “Risen”, ending thus the old women’s life...
    The doctor, the monk and the Nurse have now truly witness the arrival of the Risen to the town...

    No one is truly safe now...
    From this episode, the most significant fact is Tatsumi being able to get in the clinic; the possible explanation is he got permission from Ozaki’s wife after we saw him earlier, or like I mentioned, he is not bound by such rules as those that bind vampires, Tatsumi is the most important force amongst the “Risen” because he has all the strength of a Vampire and none of the weaknesses…

    Although Megumi is not significant for the plot, still has a huge presence whenever she appears, obfuscating everything else around her as if asking us to look at her only…

    Ozaki’s wife introduction, brings a little brightness and light humor specially when bickering with Ozaki’s mother, she will have an important role to play later on, and will be the turning point in the series…

    Tenth Mourning:
    After the move on the clinic, the risen choose a new target to hunt, this time, Natsuno is the hunted, he who is seen as a threat. By the time Natsuno arrives home, the little girl had already left the place without confronting him, but the following night they return to finish their business, and it is a person very close to him, Megumi herself isn’t too happy and wants to take care of things herself...

    At the end of the episode, there's a little twist and I don’t know if it was expected this soon...

    This episode wasn’t really scary or even eerie as with previous episodes, there was no element of surprise or unknown, but things might get even more interesting from now on because the “Risen” are getting more aggressive...

    Edit: Towa no quon movie 1|6
    The story, characters and action are good, but i see nothing outstanding about it, maybe with further episode this changes...
    6 movies in 6 months if all goes as planed...

    40m of fast paced action and good animation...

    Would anyone recommend Beelzebub ? I've seen a couple of screenshots that caught my interest, but I don't want to jump the gun and add it to my nearly reaching a terabyte of to-watch animes.

    There are many good oldies, check my list in the opening...
    But i could recomend some:

    Good quality oldies are Nadia, a masterpiece created by gainax, another is fantastic children, it is another fantastic masterpiece, now and then, here and there is another classic...

    More recent are such masterpieces as Mushishi, more recent even, beast player Erin (kemono Souja Erin) or Seirei no Moribito...
