Review: Kimi no Na Wa

BEWARE, SOPILERS ARE ADDED ON THE OPINION.
Two persons switch bodies. It’s a theme that many series, movies and anime use. Examples are Disney's Friki Friday or the anime Kororo Conect. This time, Makoto Shinkai brings a new movie that touches this theme additionally with time travel.
Scince the beginning of the movie we notice there is something strange with our female character, Mitsuhara. The movie shows us how did she do last day. She didn't remember what happen, so one can be conclude that she suffers amnesia. As the story continues we discovered that Mitsuha switches body with a high school boy in Tokyo, Taki.
This part of the movie is really fun watching Taki and Mitsuha living their lives with a different body putting notes on cellphones to prevent the original owner of the body knows what happened or the plans of the day. As the movie describes this, one can make a question: Why they are switching bodies? And about the cellphones: They didn't exchange any call or message.
One they the switching stopped and Taki (finally) decides to search for Mitsuha. He don't know where the town is or even the name (how convenient). So with the help of two friends, he begins the journey. When the trio finally arrive to the place, a surprise is waiting for them. Mitsuha died, and her town has destroyed due a meteorite.
Was really necessary to put time lapse and time reset in the movie? No. There is only to put a bit drama and make the movie more complicated that was originally. And because of "I want it" the characters fall in love. After a curious declaration both characters forget each other and their lives continue. Does they live in different times? All this was forced.
Characters didn't talk to each other. They only put notes to know what to do. Why they fall in love each other? Basically they didn't know each other. You can tell me: Yes they know because of switching bodies can know problems, life, family, etc of each other. And then? That's not a good explanation. That's why a date exist, to know each other and fall in love in the process.
The positive thing is the animation is really good. The colors and the scenarios are to admire (like in Kotonoha no miwa, Garden of words). Music is not the best but can pass. Honestly is the only 2 things good on the movie. Story is not that good.

Opinon: Maho girls pretty cure. First 23 episodes.



Well. Afere a really hard time trying to watch Maho girls, I finally complted the first 23 episodes of this series from the big franchise of pretty cure. Even when I watched doko doki precure I didn't have a hard time watching it. I watched every week an episode. With Maho girls it didn't happen. Why? Let me explain:

The story has witches in a magic world as a main theme. Mirai meets Riko, a witch that is searching of a Linkie stone, an emerald. Both of the girls go to the Magic World in a way similar to Harry Potter. In this part, the anime has a lot of potencial. Creating a world of magic anyone can think the posibilities anout it. How they live? The rules, they every life with magic... and a School and a street similar to Howarts and Diagon Alley. And no. Its not me that has this comparison. Delete all names of J.K Rowling books and put Precure, colours and useless mascots and cha taaan, we have a new season of precure.

The series make a mistake sending Riko and Mirai to the Non Magic World (So original...). This can be an excuse to not to develop the magic World. I mean, creating a new world can be full of options, creating a how to in everything (rules, life, magic creatures) but the series didn't develop this world because it is more impotant to make the characters finding linki stones. Taking about the stones why are there? why the enemy want them? I don't know, we don't know at least in the first 20 episodes they dom't explain in full the mission of this.

Other thing that this season lack is in character development. I mean, Mirai doesn't have any objective to purchase. Comparing, Nozomi from Yes pretty cure 5, doesn't have a dream and in both seasons she appear is searching what she want to do in the future. Haruka (Go! princess precure) wants to be a princess and try everything (ballet, tea lessons, etc) to be a perfect princess, this thanks to Miss Shamour. Mirai doesn't have this kind of development. She become a witch only because she discovers Riko.

Talking about Riko her development is more consistent, She wants to be a powerful witch. She sees herself in a lower level thanks to her older sister, Liz. In this part, Mirai is a good character because thanks of her Riko can learn some lesson that she can't learn ins school and books.

I can also talk about the mascot development. Haa chan is a cute fairy, more than Ai Chan (Doki doki pretty cure). Is this a useless character? in part. Haa Chan makes problems that both Pretty cure have to solve. As always, the enemy look the mysterious power that has this fairy and target her. In the end, she transforms in an human and a new Pretty cure, Feliche. Her development han be better.

By this time, I am not motivated to continuing this season. Its boring and lack in too much things in my opinion. A good thing is that in the end of episode 22 the final boss was defeated. Im a bit courious about what will happen by now thought the end.

Favourite pics from Go! princess precure movie
















Feb. 10th, 2016

(no subject)

Tomos: 7
Mangaka: Yuu Watase
Género: shojo, sobrenatural, fantasía

Alice Seno, una chica de secundaria algo insegura y tímida es siempre opacada por su hermana mayor, Mayura. Ella la admira por que es bonita, talentosa y no tiene miedo de decir lo que verdaderamente siente. Ella en cambio nunca ha tenido el valor de decir lo que siente.

Ambas hermanas están enamoradas del mismo chico, Kyo Wakamiya y es Mayura quien se adelanta y confiesa sus sentimientos y por consejos de Alice, Kyo decide aceptar y corresponder los sentimientos de Mayura.

De ida a la escuela, resulta que se encuentra con un conejo que salva de ser atropellado. El conejo es Nyozeka quien busca al Lotis Master o a la persona capaz de controlar 24 palabras.

Antes de comprender lo que está sucediendo y de sus nuevos poderes que por alguna razón tiene, llena de rencor, envidia y sin pensar bien lo que está diciendo, le dice a sun hermana que "ojalá desapareciera". Pero nunca se imaginó que eso realmente sucediera. Ahora es su deber regresarla antes de que la oscuridad la consuma por completo...

Opinión:

Esta historia me la encontré de pura casualidad ya que Editorial Panini Cómics comenzó a publicarla y, como ya tengo el antescedente de Yuu Watase (leí el manga Ayashi no Ceres) decidí comenzar la colección. Y no me arrepiento. A su manera, Watase nos quiere hacer entender que las palabras son importantes y que no debemos guardarlas pues no sólo nos hará daño a nosotros, sino también a los demás, cosa que la protagonista aprende a la mala. Por guardarse sus sentimientos a Kyo ella y su hermana se enfrascan en una pelea y algunas cosas del pasado de ambas hermanas sale a relucir.

Go! Princess precure


Go! Princess Precure
Capítulos 50
Género: Magic girl.
Precuela: Happiness Charge Precure
Secuela: Mahou Tsukai Precure.

Haruka Haruno es una chica muy alegre, extrovertida y llena de alegría que sueña con ser una princesa. COn esto en mente llega a la Academia Yumehama para poder cumplir su sueño. Ahí conocerá a mucha gente, cada uno con diferentes sueños a cumplir: Minami Kaido que sueña con ayudar a las personas, Kirara Amanogawa que sueña con ser una top model y a Nanase Yui que sueña con convertirse en una ilustradora y escritora de cuentos infantiles.

Haruka, junto con Minami y Kirara se convertirán en las Princess Precure que protegerán los sueños, no solo de las personas de la Academia, sino de toda la ciudad donde viven y, además tratarán de liberar de Dispyar, el Reino del Prícipe Kanata: Hope Kingdom.

Entre sus enemigos se encontrará Twilight, una chica misteriosa, hija de la misma Dispyar que se autonombra la Princesa Verdadera o la Princesa Negra. ¿Qué tipo de relación tendrá Twilight y Kanata?

Opinión:

Después de Heartchatch, las siguientes temporadas de pretty cure no llegan a ser lo que este fue en su momento: una temporada llena de misterio, un buen desarrollo de personajes y además, villanos memorables que, por alguna razón perdieron ante el enemigo en turno. Lo peor llegó con Doki doki Precure que, teniendo potencial de desarrollo de varias subtramas, no lo hizo (de hecho, quiero hablar de eso en el futuro...). Happiness Charge fue bueno, lindo y un tanto infantil. La idea de traer pretty cure de todo el mundo (París, Italia, India e incluso Estados Unidos) fue una idea refrestante y original, pero no llega a ser memorable.


Hablando de Go! Princess, muchos dirán: Después de las Princesas de Disney y los intentos de Matel de meter a Barbie en papeles de Princesa ¿Qué de original puede tener una pretty Cure princesa? Pues bien: La misión principal en esta temporada es el de proteger a las personas de la deseperación, por que los sueños son importantes y hay que cumplirlos.


Si, es verdad, Anteriormente pretty cure nos habló de la importancia de los sueños: Yes pretty cure 5 y la película All stars 3 mirai ni tomodachi nos habló de ello, pero aquí no solo se enfoca en los sueños de las protagonistas, sino en el sueño de todos y eso motiva a que uno como espectador intente cumplir los sueños propios.

Haruno Haruka: la mejor protagonista. Haruka, Cure Flora desea ser una princesa, ¿Pero qué significa ser princesa? Tienes que ser gentil, fuerte y hermosa. Es la frase que nos dicen durante los 50 capítulos que dura esta temporada. Con esto en mente, Haruka intenta todo lo que puede para cumplir su sueño: desde bailar ballet, aprender violín hasta el cómo servir el té. Pienso que es el ejemplo a seguir para muchos. Aunque no es buena y todo le sale mal al principio, con la práctica todo saldrá bbien, es algo que Haruka aprende.

Dyspair y su objetivo: durante toda la temporada, Dyspair desea destruir los sueños y crear deseperación. ¿Para qué? No se sabe bien. Ya al final de la temporada se nos dice que los sueños siempre van a traer desesperación y que no importa cuanto tiempo pase, siempre que haya sueño habrá desperación. Algo parecido nos dijeron con Suite Precure: La música trae alegría pero también tristeza, cada vez que hay tristeza, Noise (el enemigo final en Suite) aparecrerá.

Una temporada adictiva. Si bien, la temporada empezó floja y lenta, que no sabes bien para donde va, con la aparición de Twilight (no la Pony no tiene nada que ver.... y ¿Por que "Twilight" siempre tiene que ver con princesas? Twilight la Pony Princesa, Twilight la Princesa Negra, Midna es la Princesa del Twilight Realm en Zelda... Twilight Princess). Cada capítulo deseas ver que sucederá después y la verdad es que no hay capítulos de relleno, salvo en la primera mitad (los primeros 25 capítulos) que sirven nada más para ampliar un poco más el mundo y presentarnos un poco a los estudiantes de la Academia.

De todas las temporadas que he visto de Pretty Cure, esta ha sido la que ha llegado a la calificación de 10 de 10. Vamos, ni siquiera Heartchatch le di esa calificación (le di 9 de 10). Se puede decir mucho de esta temporada. Cosas malas tiene el anime, si, Hay pocos casos en que algunos personajes fastidian y no quisieras volverlos a ver. Haruka es tan metiche que si conozco a alguien como ella en la vida real seguro la mando a volar o nunca le vuelco a hablar. Pues hay momentos en que alguie  está triste o enojado y ella a fuerzas quiere cambiarles aquélla faceta. Y eso no esta mal, pero... dices, por favor... Si eres amiga de alguien debes respetar su decisión...

Nanase Yui. No es el persosnaje inútil, pero hubieron varias ocasiones en los que deseabas que se conviritiera en una pretty cure que dices... hay por favor... ¿En qué pensaron los escritores? Era una buena candidata. Pues sin magia no es de gran ayuda, por más que Haruka diga que lo es...

About my favourite songs.

Well, This time I want to share about some of my favourite anime songs. I hope you enjoy them and take some time to hear them. I recomend them while you are reading a book or a manga or while writting an essay. Yes, that final eesay of the semester.

Kaze no machi e. Junction Fiction

The song of my own memories. When the manga of Tsubasa chroncile was currelty publishing on Japan. I made a several friends thanks to this title.



Akatsuki. Akiko Shirata.

I watched Akatsuki no Yona and personally I loved tje second ending of this anime. I have no interest of the anime, but while I watched more episodes, I really like the story of Yona. Hoping of a second season.



Kira pata shining. Eri, from Star Anis idol Group.

I like the anime of Aikatsu and of the 4 members of dream Academy Sora is my favourte one. I like ther just becasuse she is an idol that desisgn her own dresses.



Arabian Romance.

Also from Aikatsu, and one of the best song of all Aikatsu. A duet of Eri and Waka from Star Anis:



Uhho Uhhoho AKB48.

I really don't like too much AKB, but some of their songs area really enjoyable.This time, I bring you a concert they did in Tokyo Dome. Fun and enjoyable.

Oyasumi Tutu Balerina Aikatsu

This time, I want to put somethings about Aikatsu. Today I finished the third season of Aikatsu and I have to say that is (much) better than the second season of the anime. This time, we have nice characters like Kurebayashi Yuri the idol from Andalucia. Her songs, her dresses are simply perfect.

Akari was the protagonist this time and was a refresh of all the series, Ichigo is a good Character, but 2 seasons in a raw is too much. Continue with Akari, we see her grown, meeting new characters and improving her Aikatsu.

Now, The final episode 152. Luminas (and Not her...)


Is the trio of idol that has Akari with her both friends of her: Hinaki and Sumire. The gruop go nationwide to promoting the group and the idol activities. And is... what will happen from here in the 4th season??? By the way, I like the performance with Vanilla Chilli Pepper.



What do I want for season 4?

Maybe the 2 new protagonist not as idols, insted a pair of fans that get involved with Luminas and help in their concert. Aikatsu world is really huge, they can do as much as they can, including a lot of episodes with fans (not 2 or 3), helping other idols, and not avoiding the theme of loosing and not gaining what their want.

Maybe I can weite a fanfic about this...
