JReviews/ Anime Talk: Digimon

Hi guys, JR here again and once again I'm hijacking the Anime Talk title from Kaldath (you guys get 2 Anime Talks in one week, what a novelty). This is because next week is the release of the second part of Digimon Adventure Tri. Now, I'm sure people might remember that I did an Anime Talk on the first part of A3 last year and I, for want of a better phrase, lost my absolute mind over it. Of course I will be reviewing (read fanspazzing all over) the second part next week, but first I thought I'd do something I've wanted to do for a while and go over the previous Digimon series. All of them.

Anime Talk: 12 Days Of Anime – Day 12

On The 12th Day Of Anime Japan Gave to me:

Bleach Opening 10 - Shojo S

This one is all about the music, because it is my all time favorite band SCANDAL and their song Shojo S. I originally started watching bleach bout 3 years ago but lost interest about 1 1/2 season into it. Recently however I have gone back and started over and found a new love of the series and the fact that my above stated Favorite Band SCANDAL perform the opening for season 10 and 15 doesn't hurt, and Shojo S is in the top 5 of my favorite scandal songs!

and as a Bonus I will include SCANDAL's Music Video for this song!

and this concludes the 12 days of Anime, and seeing as it is now Christmas day I want to take this time to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!

On The 11th day of Anime Japan Gave to me:

Boob Humor - Life is unfair

Ok, I admit it! I am a 42 year old man that turns into the giggling 13 year old boy over boobie jokes and I found this scene very funny! It was taken from the Anime The Devil is a Part-Timer and I just laugh whenever I see it especially because of the Hamburger cut scenes !

The the 10th Day of Anime Japan Gave to me:

Koujo and Asagi Kiss

In this scene from the Anime Strike the Blood, we have Asagi tricking her childhood friend of Koujo who is our main character and secret vampire lord into kissing her, thus confusing her feelings for him. The scene is great mostly because of his expression after the kiss, but I also love the reaction of Koujo's little sister Nagisa and main love interest and leading lady Yukina's reaction after the fact!

On The 9th Day Of Anime Japan Gave to Me:

Stick up Datery?

This is another one I couldn't find a clip for to show you all, though I will link you to the first episode and the scene in question is the very first scene of episode 1. ... Anyway This is from the anime Amagi Brilliant Park and to be honest with you I have only just started watching this show myself because of some elses 12 days of anime review and like him felt this scene needed to be shared because frankly I think it is really funny! The Anime opens up with transfer student Sento asking out Kanie to an amusement park the following Sunday. But this is no ordinary date request because it is being performed at gun point giving poor Kanie no choice but to say yes!

Now I will honestly say that besides for this scene and a few other with Sento and her gun I am finding the anime to be enjoyable but nothing  special. That being said I will continue to watch the show and hope for even more gun toting hilarity to follow

( Here is the full 1st episode of Amagi Brilliant Park, just watch the first scene or the whole episode  ............... )

On the 8th Day of Anime Japan Gave to  me:

Touma Confronts Misaka

From A Certain Scientific Railgun comes this clip which honestly spans a bit more then a single scene but though cheating a bit here you're sure to understand once you see it how powerful it is as a whole. Here we have Touma confronting Misake over her decision to sacrifice herself for the highly uncertain chance that it will save the lives of her clones. It is just a highly emotionally charged encounter from one of my favorite anime so I needed to share it with you all !
