 Issac & Miria From BACCANO

 

Isaac and Miria are a pair of clueless and eccentric partner-in-crime lovers who dress up in costumes and commit strange robberies, such as stealing candy and even the entrance door of a museum.

Within the series, set during the Prohibition-era of the United States, Isaac and Miria “are a pair of idiotic lovers and thieves” who are portrayed as “always enthusiastic and optimistic”.

They are often mistaken for performers because of the variety of disguises they employ during their heists, such as dressing up as mummies or as the Tramp.

The duo commit a variety of eccentric robberies, including attempting to steal time by stealing watches, trying to stop anyone from entering a museum by stealing the entrance and stealing the Genoard family fortune to prevent the family from fighting over it.

Miria exhibits a complete trust in Isaac and supports anything he says no matter how ridiculous it is and often goes as far to mimic his body language and his speech, although she often does not really know what she is saying.

Although the pair are very idiotic, Isaac is not completely stupid and there are occasions that shows that he displays his inner intelligence. He is able to recognize a pair of plainclothes officers because he claims that he is familiar with their speech style.[6]Isaac and Miria may have been born into wealthy families because they state that their parents’ homes and the Genoard mansion have similar exteriors.

 

 

In Prohibition era United States. In 1930, the duo attempt to steal the entire household of the mafia families of Genoard (which they succeed) and Martillo, incident on which they become unintentionally immortal after mistaking the Grand Panacea for alcohol and drinking it at a celebration.

 

The next year, after attempting gold mining in California without any luck, they board the Flying Pussyfoot express train and survived the bloody hijacking that occurs.

Isaac is arrested for various thefts in 1934 and imprisoned on Alcatraz, but released in the same year, later reuniting with Miria. The pair continue to live happily, finally realizing they are immortal 67 years later, in 2001, after stealing some cellphones inManhattan.

 

 

Immortality aside, they possess a striking amount of luck, having escaped numerous dangerous situations throughout the series without serious injury (it took them roughly 70 years to realize they were immortal).

 

 

They’re both very charismatic and “sprinkle happiness without noticing.”

They also exhibit a somewhat indomitable will as is suggested by their headstrong personalities. Both are also proficient in the use of firearms, blunt instruments and unarmed combat.

It was going to be an eventful Saturday, the 30th of August as it was the time of the month when our favorite anime club the Delhi Anime Club (DAC) had one of its monthly group meetings, but this time it was not just a group meeting, it was THE group meeting. The reason for this distinction was the venue, it was held at the auditorium of the –drum roll please– Japan Foundation!! Yes you read right, the Japan Foundation located in Lajpat Nagar, who were kind enough to let us host our meet there. The admins had organized fun activities this time around to make this a memorable experience for everyone.
group cover

Members started coming in at around 11:00 AM, the humble auditorium with it’s empty seats was starting to fill up. There were greetings, handshakes, hugs and smiles all around the room as members met their friends who had just arrived. At 12:00 PM, it was time for the first activity, the anime movie screening; the movie that was screened was “Sakasama No Patema (Patema Inverted)” by Purple Cow Studios. The story is about two races of humans who are gravitationally attracted in opposite directions, when a girl from one of these two races who’s name is Patema falls in love with a boy from the other race who’s name is Eiji, they must hold onto each other (LITERALLY) and fight against the government to unite their two races. The movie got mixed reviews from the members, with some saying it was unbelievably confusing and others saying it was quite interesting; though almost everybody had the same question, ”Are we standing the right side up?”. After the movie ended, everybody was given half an hour to grab a bite and come back for the next activity.
The next activity could be considered the main attraction of the August meet, the KARAOKE COMPETITION! There were 12 songs among which one was a duet and one was a quartet, the prizes were boxes of Pocky (in varying sizes and flavor). First prize was a large box of blueberry pocky, which was won by Aya Kan for singing “By My Side” from the Anime Naruto. Second prize was green tea flavored pocky, won by Abhishek Dixit for singing “The Other Side” from Kuroko No Basuke and last but not least, third price was a box of regular pocky won by Meghna Singh for singing “Yui-Life” from Bleach. We also had a special performance by our very own Masaya-san who was the organizer of the whole Karaoke activity.

After Karaoke everybody got together for some group pictures as well as some hilarious pictures with friends, the meet ended with one final group picture, after which everybody said their farewells and slowly (reluctantly) began leaving the Japan Foundation building.

NAC: Oh I see.  What has been your best cosplay?

KC: My favorite cosplay is of miku from vocaloid. Which I did ICC held at Delhi. And she is my favorite character.

Meiko – Vocaloid

NAC: You like Hatsune Miku very much isn’t it? You have cosplayed her in many avatars, is she a special character to you? What is your favorite version of Hatsune Miku that you have cosplayed?

KC: That’s right, miku is very special to me. I love the character and her songs. She is always by my side and encourages me. About my favorite miku avatar……ummm…….yapari yapari……….it has to be the original avatar of Miku. There are many avatars but the original is best for me.

NAC: What manga and anime do u like?

KC: There are many favorite anime and manga but my most followed are “Ade Han”, “Magi”, “Bizarre Adventure”, “JoJo”, “Ghost in the Shell “, “Love Live! “, ” Kirurakiru “and” Free!” and my favorite manga is “One Piece”. The list is very long and its troublesome to name them all.

NAC: Your ‘Nami’ cosplay is very famous among the fans, what kind of character do you prefer? A strong/badass or cute character?

KC: Thank you. I like name very much. Nami is very cute and strong sometimes. She is my favorite in one piece. In terms of what I like strong, cute, badass, cool, appealing characters. But for cosplaying I prefer cute characters as they are easy to pull off.

Strong characters are a bit hard for me to cosplay, however in future I will try and cosplay them.

Rayfel Ford – Vassalord

NAC: Ah I see. What has been the toughest character to cosplay?

KC: For me the most difficult one has been to cosplay as any guy. The reason being, the character has to be cool and charming.

About the Anime:

Genres: Action, Mecha, Military, School, Super Power

Directed By: Goro Taniguchi

Written By: Ichiro Okouchi

Status: Completed 

Sequel: Code Geass: Akito the Exiled 1/ Code Geass: Akito the Exiled 2/ Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch – Kiseki no Birthday Picture Drama / Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2/ Code Geass: Nunnally in Wonderland

Lelouch, an exiled Imperial Prince of Britannia posing as a student, finds himself in the heart of the ongoing conflict for the island nation. Through a chance meeting with a mysterious girl named C.C., Lelouch gains his Geass, the power of the king. Now endowed with absolute dominance over any person, Lelouch may finally realize his goal of bringing down Britannia from within!

Prior to the start of the show, the Eleventh Prince, Lelouch vi Britannia and his sister, Princess Nunnally vi Britannia lived with their strict father, the Emperor, and caring mother in the capital city of the Holy Britannian Empire, Pendragon. When Lelouch was ten, and Nunnally was six, their mother was shot to death. Ultimately, Nunnally was caught in the crossfire and could no longer walk, and was blinded from trauma of seeing her mother murdered.

Lelouch became angry that his father did nothing to solve the murder and renounced his anointment to the throne, and he and his sister were thereof placed in the care of the Kururugi shrine, in Japan. In this time Suzaku Kururugi, became friends with Lelouch, but they were separated from each other because of the war, which ended Japan’s existence in 2010 in the given calendar.

The area’s name became “Area 11″ as a mocking gesture to the month long defeat of the nation. Later they were taken in by the Ashford Academy, run by the Ashford Foundation of which their mother was a test pilot for. They were given a maid, Sayoko Shinozaki, to assist with the care of Nunnally, and they lived in hiding for years. Lelouch resolves to pursue a better world for Nunnally. He also seeks to discover the true reason for his mother’s death, as she was murdered in the Aries Imperial Palace, a place terrorists would be unlikely to penetrate successfully without being noticed, if at all.

Why I recommend this ?: Code Geass is one of my favorite anime. Why? It’s filled with so much action, bombastic dialogue, and has such eye-catching visuals that it tops the charts in entertainment value. This is an exciting and epic anime and it’s over the top.

Code geass is one of those anime’s that is just extraordinary. It had one of the most interesting worlds in which Britannia (which basically is Britain) takes over Japan. A boy named Lelouch who was once Britannia royality swore vengences against Britannia.

He meets a girl named C.C. who gives awesome super powers called the geass. Not only that Lelouch is super smart so he leads an a group who has a similar cause to him called the black knights to fight against Britannia. Already it sounds cool but there is more than that but you have to watch to know.

On top of everything, it has a great story, great graphics, and great music !!!

Who Shouldn’t watch this ?: Umm… who shouldn’t watch this ? Its more like why haven’t you watched this ? I watched the entire series in dubbed and there weren’t any swear or foul words in the entire series, but i cant say the same for the subbed version. Besides that anyone who into military and mecha animes, is welcome d to enjoy this series.

Starts of as a generic story about a kid not having powers,while everyone else does.
The main character is uninteresting.

About the Anime:

 

Genre: Action, Comedy, Ecchi, Romance, School, Shoujo Ai, Shounen, Super Power

Directed By: Yasuhiro Kuroda

Written By: Toshihiko Tsukiji

Status: Completed 

 

The plot revolves around Natsuru Seno, a normal high school boy with blue hair. One day he wakes up and found himself turned into a girl. A stuffed tiger “Harakiri Tora” comes to life and tells him that he has been chosen as one of the “Kämpfer”, a female fighter. The Kämpfer are destined to fight with other Kämpfer. The story starts when he is attacked by an unknown girl who happens to also be a Kämpfer.

Who’s objective consists on fighting other Kämpfer with either guns, swords or magic.

However, there’s catch, first, you can’t chose if you’re a Kämpfer or not, and second, you must have the body of a girl to use your powers.

 

Why I recommend this ?: Kämpfer combines many time honored and tested themes of mahou shoujo-esque transformations, girls fighting each other, gender confusion, and lesbianism. Mix in plenty of service and a clichéd harem of the usual personality types. The best thing to come out of the cast is clearly the talking stuffed “Entrails Animals” that serve as companions for each of the Kämpfer. The fact that they were all voiced by very well known seiyuu was a big part of it but they were really the only characters who were actually funny.

Overall there is nothing for me to recommend about this anime. It fails as a action, harem, or even ecchi. While it does have its moments at times there is not enough of any one thing to really appeal to fans of any of these genres.

If you are wondering why I still recommended this anime, well it’s because we all have different tastes in animes, I might have not have enjoyed it that much but it can so happen it to be your favorite. So give it a try :)

 

Who Shouldn’t watch this ?: Those who like action or romance will not be satisfied and neither will fans of ecchi since all of the service is pretty tame and pedestrian by current standards. Combining that with the terrible ending that fails to resolve neither the main plot or any of it’s subplots and we have almost total across the board fail.

Status: Ongoing 

 

In modern day Tokyo, society lives in fear of Ghouls: mysterious creatures who look exactly like humans, yet hunger insatiably for their flesh. None of this matters to Ken Kaneki, a bookish and ordinary young man, until a dark and violent encounter turns him into the first ever Ghoul-human half breed. Trapped between two worlds, Ken must survive the violent conflicts of warring Ghoul factions, while attempting to learn more about Ghoul society, his new found powers,  and the fine line between man and monster.

 

Why I recommend this ?:  I will be honest with you, I am not a huge fan of horror animes but this anime is/was worth watching. Supernatural, horror, and action all packed in one, the art and graphics of Tokyo Ghoul is average at best. Nothing you can honestly complain about. Its an amazing anime to me, sure there are others with the same animation but with the blood and gore scenes… nothing beats it! I’d say it compliments the manga quite well too. I could go on and on about this series on how great this anime is… but i wont!

I truly recommend that even if your not into animes or mangas like this, watch it!!! I thought it was going to be a good break in between my other shows, but I was wrong! Give it a try, I promise you’ll like it!

 

Who Shouldn’t watch this ?: Personally, I think if you get disgusted easily and cant handle seeing a human being eaten, then please for your own appetite sake, do not watch this anime. As for age wise its VL16, meaning Violence and Strong Language and of course you got to be 16+.
