The Walking Dead Season 5 | finale & whole season review + spoilers



Season 5: 16 episodes
Premiered: October 12, 2014
Concluded: March 29, 2015
Episode duration: 45 minutes
Finale: 90 minutes


My thoughts:

To be honest the whole time I'm watching the finale I constantly fear that someone from Rick's Group either Glenn or Daryl would die why did I thought of that? Well someone from the Alexandria's Camp hates Glenn since the last mission as for Daryl well he's out there once again hunting,recruiting people I know they're strong it's just that I'm so worried so many people around the interwebs are saying/speculating Glenn's gonna be next or in the blah blah blah comics this is this and that although if some of you may or may not know the comics is quite different from the tv series but still ya know you can never can tell haha!

I for one haven't gotten over volume I of the comics so I only know a few mostly the beginning.I'm actually a bit hesitant about watching this series since there's zombies involve and I'm quite a scaredy cat when it comes to that til one day I decided to desensitize myself to finally get over it! I'm really glad how things turned up in the end.

Spoiler Alert!

What I love in the Finale is Rick's old friend Morgan found Daryl and rescued them it seems he regained his sanity again their reunion of course was a bit shocking I guess and it's like the other way around since we last saw them get together.Oh the cliffhanger of it all ugh must wait til season 6 to find out what happens next -_-

I found a very detailed recap around the interwebs here read all about it.Thanks sleepy eye herald-dispatch for that very spot on post.

As for the entire season I gotta say overall everything came nicely together especially in the end there's lots of unexpected twist and each episode title makes sense to me now.This kept me on the edge of my seat every single time and it seems that I tend to cry every season whether in joy or sorrow. I hope everything turns out well and for the best of season 6.

My season 6 expectations/speculations would be of course Morgan (Rick's Old Friend) they would catch up,what happened til they last met,how he found him stuff like that. Alexandria vs. The Wolves.The Alexandrians would learn how to defend themselves,survive and thrive some of them might die.Hopefully by the end of it all Alexandria would survive all attacks and still be left standing. Watch out for Sasha and Father Gabriel due to their suicidal thoughts they might lose it next season or regain some sanity for the sake of it all #survivorsguilt


P.S
There's an upcoming Los Angeles spin off of this series.








Absolute Boyfriend by Yuu Watase | Manga Review



Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance, School Life, Sci-fi, Shoujo
Series: Completed (6 volumes)
Synopsis (from Viz):
Rejected way too many times by good-looking (and unattainable) guys, shy Riiko Izawa goes online and signs up for a free trial of a mysterious Nightly Lover "figure." The very next day a cute naked guy is delivered to her door, and he wants to be her boyfriend!Has Riiko died and gone to heaven? The cute guy turns out to be sweet, smart, a great cook, and lots more. And he looks like a million bucks, which is what he's going to cost Riiko if she doesn't return him in time...


My thoughts:

What if you could really get a perfect boyfriend and order him online? wouldn't that be great? everything would be grand and just the way you like it, all your problems would be solve in an instant like things you couldn't do your boyfriend could do it for you with a smile. The catch is that kind of boyfriend and technology would cost you a lot! but then again that versus with the cost of your happiness so would you take it?

I really love this story! I love it so much it hurts and the feels are just so great it took me awhile to get over it although I'm not even sure if I'm over it yet even after so many years!.The AI (Artificial Intelligence) idea has been done so many times and in those times that I've read such story like Chobits and this one I usually ended up crying T_T

Yes,I cried so many times in this story alone.It's so heart warming,the scenarios very human and relateable I want to order a perfect boyfriend of my own haha! kidding aside but those instances wherein you find yourself in dire need of assistance and moments where you need someone to be there with you in an instant is the kinda of thing I think most of us wants your own person there with you by your side.

The characters in this world they're regular,ordinary people (except for the AI of course).Riiko tries her best in most situations the moment Night came into her life changes everything! the most exciting bits for me is when Night got into a fight also those times when Riiko's so amaze Night can do anything so extraordinarily well (ok he's a robot but still!) the plot twist for me in the end kinda caught me by surprise I never really thought that could ever happen it's a happy sad ending for me. Let's just say it's one of those series I'd like to be longer but hey I think even with six volumes it ended pretty well the story lives on within us.With that being said I highly recommend this series and gave it five out of five stars!

Feel free to share some of your thoughts below the comment section ^_^

My thoughts:

One of my closest friends recommended this show to me and I instantly got hooked! if you haven't watched it yet go ahead and check it out for yourself if that first episode won't get you I dunno what will well perhaps when you get to know this series a bit better or if you love volleyball I guess that could also get you plus it's extremely funny! I can't stop laughing every after episode the animation,joke and characters in this series are definitely spot on!they're very lively,always pushing/encouraging themselves to do their best, their expressions so bold,vivid and expressive.


So far my favorite character is Tanaka his thug gangsta like personality never fails to amaze and makes me laugh every single time.



The overall presentation,art style and format of this series took sports anime and volleyball for me to a whole new level. This is also the first volleyball sports anime I watched and loved so I couldn't really compare it to anything else (yet)

Even after a long day I can count on Haikyu to rejuvenate my soul and entire existence.That's how awesome this show is! 

I gave it five out of five stars!

So what are you waiting for? go watch haikyu now! then come back and tell me what you think about it or if you already watched it or whatever let's gush over it in the comment section below OSU! xD


P.S

As a counter force, a mysterious organization created half-human, half-Yoma warriors known as the "Silver Eyed Witches" or "Claymores," after the huge claymore swords they carry. They are detested by humanity however necessary.

The story begins with a young boy, Raki, who has lost everything in a Yoma attack, and the Claymore, Clare, who is generally detested by society. Throughout the series, Clare and Raki show their deeper qualities, powers and Clare's never ending devotion to the goal she swore to fulfill in her childhood.
__________________________________________________________________


My thoughts:

I think I came across this series about the same time I started watching Bleach way back 2007 along with other animes. What I love about it is that it's filled with strong female characters and even the under dogs rise above to prove their foes wrong also the way their eyes change colors to release their limit in order to increase their speed,stamina,strength,powers and all that I think that was pretty amazing! their sword,fighting skills are all different and unique. 

I watched the anime first which was faithful to the manga storytelling and then afterwards read the manga the rest of the way and just recently had closure with it I've been putting it back for quite some time now and I like how the characters evolve and grow.The ending was also pretty nice.

Just in case you don't know what I'm talking about although this happened pretty much early on the series I'm just gonna put a spoiler alert.
__________________________________________________________________
Spoiler Alert!
As far as I could recall in the anime/series Teresa of Faint Smile (#1 claymore,the 182nd warrior of the 77th generation created by the Organization.) found Clare when she was still a little girl then she started accompanying Teresa til one day Teresa got killed in one on her mission. Clare got taken in and went to the organization in order to became a claymore herself.
__________________________________________________________________

So our main character is Clare she's only a quarter yoma and number 47,the lowest ranking member in the organization (in her batch) became the successor of Teresa of faint smile flesh and blood. She then found a boy named Raki and she doesn't want to get attached to him knowing what she been through with Teresa. Even after knowing this Raki remained and tried to stick with Clare. Along the way Clare hone her skills,met fellow claymores,befriended and even got close to some of them,learn from each other and went through hell and back again in their missions.

Crazy battle ahead


This series has a lot of blood spilled,so many people died and I'm actually a bit surprised when I found out that there are also some male claymores but their creation was stopped by the organization due to their high level percentage of awakening.

example of awakened beings

 Being an awakened being means there's no going back and you'd be a complete monster! although that is quite an understatement and what people mostly believed but as you go on with the story you'll find out about their back stories, how they can switch back and forth in their original and yoma form.Also how a certain awakened being tried to seek out means to end her life.




Great Comeback!






The journey of these claymores are indeed very long and hard but they all endured and persevered til the very end.That's also one of the main reason I love and highly recommend this series. It's action pack,full of epic battles,transformation,coming of age story sort of way their adventure will take you to the next level.





And as for the ending I'll give you a clue and leave you with this picture below it's a Statue of Twin Goddesses if you tuned in to the series/read the whole thing you'd get what I mean.Epic battle! I got a bit emotional in the end and still don't want it to end! so yeah I'll give Claymore Anime/Manga series five out of five stars! I really hope you check it out and if you already did what are your thoughts about it?tell me in the comment section below ^_^






P.S
The moment I started compiling all of this I got a bit surprised that it's in the shounen genre which makes it even more awesome you go girls!

Paper Towns | Trailer Reaction



        The trailer was released last March 19,2015 (Thursday) release date this summer July 24,2015.

Not so long ago I read the book Paper towns by John Green. There are some parts that I like and love about that book the mystery,adventure,road trip also the revenge part. Ok so for this trailer I think they pretty much incorporated everything I pretty much imagined for the most part I felt kinda iffy about the cast at first but after watching this I think they're quite spot on with the story.

One of the first thing I noticed was Cara Delevingne's  eyebrows her trademark facial feature also her accent I really thought she's american comparing that to Emma Watson's I think she did a great job! Nat Wolff as Q well I gotta hand it to him man I think he nailed it! I already love him as Isaac in the fault and our stars and mayhaps love him even more after this haha! I don't know much about the other cast perhaps I'll learn more who is who and what is what like I said after the film and by that time I'd be able to have a solid conclusion.Overall I'm so freakin excited about this! I hope they deliver the story well I have high expectations as I already feel it's gonna be so good and awesome! xD

iZombie Debut!



 I recently watched iZombie and absolutely loved it! the story is about a medical student who becomes a zombie joins a Coroner's Office in order to gain access to the brains that she reluctantly eats so she can maintain her humanity. But every brain she eats, she also inherits their memories. Now she uses her abilities to solve their deaths with help from the Medical examiner and a police detective.


I think I first saw this one from one of my friend's social media site he shared a trailer link. He likes zombies and all that jazz.As for me well I recently started desensitizing myself  from zombies and getting a hang of the whole zombie apocalypse idea.



What I like about this show is that it's not really that scary,it has mystery,drama and the right amount of zombie also humanity in it.The show format was also nice they added some comic book vibe into it. I also love the characters I think they're relateable and very now. The medical side is also a plus which brings it all together and made a lot of sense. What I didn't know beforehand is that there's a comic book and I was like WHOA! I gotta read it! now I'm not really sure how it differs from the show so I can't really comment about that yet although it seems like they changed the characters names.


Anyway, I think they did a wonderful job for the pilot episode it shows the lead character Liv Moore before and after like how she turned into a zombie,discovered her amazing ability,love life and career.We're also introduced to a set of new characters her family,close friend and co-worker (which later on became her ally).

Will it follow the comic or will the create an entirely different story? who knows really what I do know is that I can't wait for the rest of the season I'm looking forward how it would all turn out.I'll give it a five out of five ratings due to it's awesomeness! and I hope it would go on for a very long time!

And Oh DC Entertainment is having an iZombie sale so click the picture below if you're interested. This is no way sponsored by DC Entertainment I just saw it around the interwebs and I'd like to share what I found so yeah enjoy!
