Ghost in the Shell: The New Movie shows off its new trailer

I can't say that I was all that enthralled with Ghost in the Shell Arise. It really felt like we were retreading familiar water, and the sharp deviation from Masamune Shirow's designs were jarring. I'd go as far as saying I ...

Week Ender - Fantasy Twist Edition

May 23 // Red Veron
[embed]33872:4752:0[/embed]"Sticking Places"Anime: Yu-Shibu:I Couldn't Become a Hero, So I Reluctantly Decided to Get a JobA fanservice-heavy show that had a nice premise that didn't get that developed in the first season (which is how these things based off light novels always turn out to be). The long titled show is a fun watch for those that like the fanservice and waifus that this show generously provides the viewer. More focused on a story it tries to tell rather than a workplace comedy that one might expect from the title.Lots of fanservice in that ending.[embed]33872:4753:0[/embed]"Oracion"Anime: No Game No LifeA fuzzy and warm-feeling inducing ending song that is a nice touch to the often exciting episodes of the show is a nice breather, except for that one scary one that got spooky.[embed]33872:4754:0[/embed]"Ringo Biyori~ The Wolf Whistling Song"Anime: Spice and WolfA pretty cheerful song that sounds like it was made by a bearded old man who happens to be music artist in the late 60's, this one is matched by the really amusing story book images that accompany it.[embed]33872:4755:0[/embed]"Watashi no Houseibako"Anime: Outbreak CompanyIn this quite cute ending, we get to see Petralka act all adorbs while wandering around by herself  oncastle grounds. We get to see more of this part of her in this ending since it's the 'dere' part of her Tsundere character where 'tsun' takes precedence.[embed]33872:4756:0[/embed]"Tsumabiku Hitori"Anime: The Devil is a Part-timerA laid-back ending with Chiho mostly just chillin' and being pretty, a great contrast to the lively and high-tempo opening song.So is there an ending you love that I missed?

I am sorry.[embed]33848:4744:0[/embed]"Secret Base ~The Thing you Gave Me~ (10 years after Ver.)"Anime: AnoHana: The Flower We Saw That DayA song that just hits you right there after each episode. Slowly builds up to that ending that you know is approaching closer every episode.[embed]33848:4743:0[/embed]"Brave Song"Anime: Angel Beats!This song ended each episode (except for the last one) and capped off each episode with a bittersweet note. This song just starts to feel heavier as the show went on, especially in the later episodes when we get to see more of the character's back stories.[embed]33848:4742:0[/embed]"Ichiban no Takaramono" (My most precious treasure)Anime: Angel Beats!This is the song that the show ends on and just doesn't take you on a ride on the feels train, it runs you over with it. The song accompanies the usual ending but with a different twist and a slow pang of loneliness creeps over you as each character in the picture fades away. Still makes me cri evritym.Did I miss an anime ending that makes you sad? PLEASE SHARE IN THE COMMENTS BELOW! I WANT TO SEE!

OP Up! Cry Edition

May 13 // Red Veron
[embed]33834:4734:0[/embed]"Aoi Shiori"Anime: AnoHanaOh boy, a show that I watched in a weird time of my life where I was not the happiest and this one really got to me that I haven't gotten around to seeing the movie version. The opening song gives already takes you down on a feels trip and preps you that this show is not going to happy-happy. Wait for this weekend's Week Ender where I have this show's ending song which is takes you on a more intense feels trip.[embed]33834:4735:0[/embed]"My Soul, Your Beats!"Anime: Angel Beats!An original anime project that ended earlier than it should, Angel Beats! still makes me cry (inside) every time I hear the surprisingly great music that it has for a show about a weird school and angels. I found this anime years later on a streaming service while trying to get over something and this one really got to me. Even if sad stuff isn't your thing, the great soundtrack may win you over.[embed]33834:4736:0[/embed]"Ebullient Future"Anime: Ef ~ A Tale of MelodiesA lot you probably haven't seen this one. Ef is a great collaboration between the anime studio SHAFT (Madoka Magica, Bakemonogatari) and one man feels train conductor/anime director Makoto Shinkai (Voices of a Distant Star, The Place Promised in Our Early Days) with Shinkai's amazing music wizard Tenmon.This one started out as a visual novel (yes, that's why it's sad) but got an adaptation for an anime and still packs the emotional punch with that great team behind it. Beautiful and emotionally evoking shots with breathtaking music make this one a must-see for those who want something sad yet beautiful.[embed]33834:4737:0[/embed]"Hikaru Nara"Anime: Your Lie in AprilTOO SOON.

Week Ender - Sports Edition

May 09 // Red Veron
[embed]33817:4726:0[/embed]"Start it right away" by HyadainAnime: Kuroko No BasukeI forgot how fun this ending is and have totally fallen behind with this show. I think basketball is a great sport that translates well to anime with all speed, technique, the direct one-on-one nature of the plays. I am really glad to see the sport see a resurgence in anime and manga, and I like how all the pretty boys in this one is attracting women to the sport.[embed]33817:4727:0[/embed]"Ah Yeah"Anime: Haikyuu!Great song with a more retrospective style with clips of stuff that happened in past episodes. Normally I don't like those but the song totally sets up the right mood for looking back.[embed]33817:4728:0[/embed]"Sekai ga Owaru Made wa"Anime: Slam DunkA slower rock ballad song that is sooooo 90's that it's great (for people like me). Minimal animation but does the job well.[embed]33817:4729:0[/embed]"Blaze Away"Anime: EyeShield 21Because a reader brought up this show in the OP Up!, I just had to include this one. I did watch this show waaaaay back in the day but dropped it when they were in Houston (which is where I lived) and got turned off at how they portrayed it as some Japanese suburb (dumb reason, right?). But I did remember liking this ending a lot and how it felt like a 90's Japanese rock song that they had in a lot of anime back in the day.Did I miss something?

Week Ender - Bleach Edition

May 02 // Red Veron
[embed]33794:4704:0[/embed]"Mask" By Aqua TimezA pretty dang cool ending that is the last ending for the anime. Not very complicated but still gives you a nice feeling with seeing Ichigo's friends helping him out to get back on his feet. I always like seeing Ichigo dealing with his "other self".[embed]33794:4705:0[/embed]"Life is like a boat" By Rie FuThe first Bleach ending and being very simple, does the job well with a great soulful song from Rie Fu. This song has been on my iPod since the first time I saw the show. Still stirs up feelings of what I had at the time.[embed]33794:4706:0[/embed]"My Pace" by Home Made KazokuI'm torn on this one, I like the high energy intro that has the soothing chorus but I associate this song with the excruciating wait for the fillers to end. It was episode after episode, wishing for the filler to end but nope.[embed]33794:4707:0[/embed]"Sakura Biyori" by Mai HoshimuraA very beautiful ending song that I totally forgot about and am very glad to have rediscovered. A nice way to end an episode with an uplifting song that gives you some nice and warm feels.Which one is your favorite Bleach ending? SHARE IN THE COMMENTS BELOW!

OP Up! Bleach Edition

Apr 29 // Red Veron
[embed]33787:4698:0[/embed]"Asterisk"The original opening that started it all. I remember going in blind with Bleach and was just wowed with how fun the opening got with the characters having fun. I didn't expect the show to end up being some sort of endless battle anime and just yearned for the shorter adventures they had with monster-of-the-week type of enemies. [embed]33787:4699:0[/embed]"Ranbu no Melody"A really impressive and stylish opening for Bleach. You can really see the great potential of the people who made this opening. You can see the clever shortcuts that they made that afforded them the really cool looking stuff in there. After rewatching this one, this may have become one of my favorites.[embed]33787:4701:0[/embed]"Tonight, Tonight, Tonight"One thing I really liked about Bleach is seeing the characters in fashionable street clothes and this opening has that. Tite Kubo, the author, often has art of the characters depicted as such and you can totally feel that he wants to put them in a more "normal" setting. This opening has the usual cool Bleach OP elements: stylish, exciting, creative, and with simple but efficient parts. [embed]33787:4700:0[/embed]"Velonica"This is another great example of how great the Bleach openings are with the visuals. This one combines static character portraits complimented by dynamic animation that follows. I love the use of color in the background and the Bleach logo with the characters in their cool poses, usually shounen anime will just use boring standard backgrounds.Which one is your favorite Bleach opening?

Week Ender - Spring 2005 Edition

Apr 25 // Red Veron
[embed]33779:4688:0[/embed]"Waltz" by SuneohairAnime: Honey and CloverAs previously mentioned, Honey and Clover is an all-time favorite that anyone who likes josei (shoujo for older crowds) drama should definitely check out. An underrated gem that any fan of shoujo drama should check out if they want something a bit more 'mature'. [embed]33779:4689:0[/embed]"Broken Wings"Anime: Trinity BloodI never really got to check out this anime but I do know a lot of people who love the manga and the anime. Sadly, the author of the original light novels, Sunao Yoshida, passed away before the novels were completed but a friend stepped in to help finish. I'll still definitely check this out when I can.[embed]33779:4690:0[/embed]"Fly"Anime: Comic Party RevolutionBased on a PC dating sim game that originally had some sexual stuff edited out for an all-ages release consoles, this is the second season to an anime about people in a doujin circle. The members of the circle are making stuff for the 'Comic Party' which is based off  the real-life "Comiket" (Comic Market) that happens twice a year in Metropolitan Tokyo. A harem comedy drama, you know what to expect from it.[embed]33779:4691:0[/embed]"Omna Magni"Anime: AquarionHaven't seen much about this one but reading that this is an homage to super robots of the 1980's has my interest piqued. This ending is also pretty enchanting with its ghostly ethereal vocals with the very pretty storybook visuals. I just can't pinpoint the language used but I've seen people suggest that it's esperanto.[embed]33779:4692:0[/embed]"Bokura no Jikan"Anime: Futakoi AlternativeBy far one of the strangest and best ideas in anime that I have ever seen are in this show. Futakoi Alternative is a sort of sequel to Futakoi, which is a generic harem romcom that features twins, but this sequel is so much more and then some.Take all the female characters and put in a new male lead that is not boring harem MC, turn them all into action movie heroes capable of fighting and put them in comedic situations that involve guns and explosions. That explanation isn't even doing justice to explain the insanity that this show brings to the table.Also, this ending does not represent the show.[embed]33779:4693:0[/embed]"Secret Base"Anime: Eureka SevenThis is one of those shows from 10 years ago that wowed me with the style and visuals that provided something different in the mecha action genre. I never got to see the full run but I do appreciate this show and like much of the stuff in it. Got any anime favorites from 2005? Check out this list and let's reminisce in the comments below!!!
