Humanity’s Last Hope

Good morning my loyal Painkillers, and welcome to another addition of Anime Wednesday. Today we are going to be talking about, a really short, but really good series. I think that this series is really underrated, but hopefully after this, it will get the recognition that it truly deserves. So without further delay, let’s dive into Blue Submarine No. 6.

Swords Of The Three Kingdoms

Good morning Leaguers, Painkillers, Inuyasha fans, and just fans of anime in general. Thank you for supporting this, and everything that the HBCL does. So here we are in week three in Inuyasha month, and I hope that everyone has not only been enjoying what we havebeen doing, that you guys have been liking, commenting, and been sharing these articles. Anyways, you guys didn’t come here for all of that, you guys are here for more Inuyasha, since it is his month. So, let’s get into it, here Inuyasha movie 3: Swords Of An Honorable Ruler.

The movie opens up 200 years ago with Sesshomaru, and his father, The Great Dog Demon, who is badly wounded from a recent battle. They have a quick conversation before his father leaves to protect Izayoi, Inuyasha’s mother. Izayoi is about to give birth to Inuyasha, when Takemaru, a former suitor Izayoi, until he finds out that she was impregnated by a demon, kills her. Inuyasha’s father battles his way inside of the home, as Takemaru orders his men to set the palace on fire. The Dog Demon used Tenseiga to resurrect Izayoi. Takemaru enters to kill the Dog Demon, Izayoi, and their new born half demon baby, Inuyasha. The Dog Demon, took on Takemaru, which allow Izayoi to escape with Inuyasha. Unfortunately, the Dog Demon along with Takemaru die in the fire.

Back in Kagome’s time, while Inuyasha is saving her from a “wicked” volleyball, her family is in a storage room examining an old sword. It turns out to be an evil sword named So’unga, once was one of the three swords once owned by the Great Dog Demon. So’unga breaks a spell that was placed on it by the spirit of it’s own sheath, Saya, and So’unga frees himself and finds the strongest demon he can find to attach himself to, which happens to be Inuyasha. Once attached, he drags Inuyasha back to the feudal time, where they encounter Sesshomaru. During the fight, So’unga finds out about Sesshomaru’s cut off arm, and thanks to Sesshomaru and Kagome, So’unga detaches himself. He goes off and finds Sesshomaru’s arm, and awakens Takemaru, so together, Takemaru could take out the sons of the Dog Demon for revenge.

Meanwhile, Sesshomaru sets off to hunt down So’unga, to stop him, leaving Rin and Jaken behind. Inuyasha also goes off on his own, to do the same as Sesshomaru.Myogo tells everyone the story behind the three swords of the Great Dog Demon, and how Myogo and Totosai where told to give the Tenseiga to Sesshomaru, and the Tessaiga to Inuyasha. They also learned that the only way to stop So’unga, is for Inuyasha and Sesshomaru to work together, and use the combined powers of the Tessaiga, and Tenseiga. Well, fans of the show know by reading that last sentence, they already know that the world is screwed.

This movie was great, and if you guys read the articles on the first two movies I’m not going to say that line, but you already know. Sesshomaru is my favorite character from the show, and I was glad to see him in one of these movies. Now here is the question that I’m sure you are all wondering. Did I like this movie, more than the second one? Of course I did! Sesshomaru was in it! Need I say more. Once again this movie can be found on Netflix, and those following along with the series, this movie falls in between espoides 136 and 137. Make sure that you guys come back next week, and we will dive into the final movie. Until next time!

Not The Mirror On The Wall!

Good morning new and old Painkillers, and welcome to the next chapter in Inuyasha month. I hoped that everyone enjoyed my review of the first movie, and actually went out and checked it out for themselves. Now it’s time to go further down the rabbit hole, and let’s talk about the second movie, The Castle Beyond The Looking Glass.

The movie opens up with the gang in the middle of the battle with their sworn enemy, Naraku. Unfortunately, Inuyasha has to sit out this fight, due to it being the night of the new moon, and him turning human during this time. Luckily, the sun rises, and Inuyasha is back to being a half demon. With his help, they kill Naraku. After the battle, Miroku realises that the curse that was set apond his family is finally broken, as his wind tunnel is gone. With the death of Naraku, Miroku and Sango separate from Inuyasha, Shippo and Kagome, as they take time for themselves, and to figure out what to do next.

Not feeling fully free from the grip of Naraku, Kagura and Kanna, incounters The Princess of the Heavens, Kaguya. She is currently trapped inside of a mirror. In return for freeing her from the mirror, Kaguya offers Kagura and Kenna true freedom from Naraku. They go off to collect five items, and putting them in certain locations to break the seal, freeing Kaguya from the mirror. Once free, she incounters Inuyasha and Kagome, and this is where I tell you if you want to find out what happens next, that you go watch the damn movie for yourself.

Once again, this movie is really good, and again feels like it is just an extended espisode. Speaking of espisodes, this movie supposedly takes place between episodes 95 and 96. If you are a hardcore fan, and plan on watching the entire series again, now you know when to watch this movie. Just like the first movie, I was able to find this on Netflix, so that makes it easier for everyone to watch. I really did enjoy watching this movie again, and I damn near forgot about the twist near the end. This is only the second movie, and I do like this one better than the first movie. I wonder going into the third movie, will I like that one better than this one? Well, there is only one way to find out. Come back next week, as we dive into the next movie. Until next time.

Oh, The Awkwardness!

Good morning my loyal Painkillers, and welcome to another addition of Anime Wednesday. Today, I’m going to give you an anime that is way out of my comfort zone, yet I still found it to be cute and funny. Wait, did I just called something cute? Damn I must be getting soft in my old age. Anyway, let’s get into this show. Here is Tsurezure Children.

Think back to your middle/high school days. Maybe you are currently going through these years now. If you are, have you had your first crush yet? Have you, or do you remember first kiss? Do you remember the awkwardness of telling someone how you felt about them? What about how to deal with that other person in this new relationship. If any of this sounds familiar, or you are currently dealing with this, then you can relate with everything that goes on in Tsurezure Children.

This short anime series follows a bunch of different high school students, as they try to confess their love for a fellow student. All the kids go to the same school, so some of the storylines tend to overlap. The kids deal with most issues involving love, such as confession feelings, first kisses, awarkness dealing with that other person, and even asking to grab a boob. My favorite one is with the two that never even kissed, seems like they are about to jump straight to sex, since the girl’s mother told her to carry protection just incase, and before anything happens the boy’s mother walks in, quickly leaves out, and warns the father not to come upstairs. Sorry for giving that away, but trust me there are so many good moments in this series, that giving away that one won’t matter. You can find it on Crunchyroll as well as Funamation, so whichever one you have will be fine. Until next time Painkillers.

Objection!!!

Good evening Painkillers, and welcome back to another addition of Anime Wednesday. Today I got something that I think is a bit cool. This is one of those few times that I get to cover an anime, that is literally ripped from a video game. I’m going to be really honest, I have never played any of these games before, so I had no idea what to expect as I watched this show. Now that I have, I enjoyed it, so I figured that I should share this with you. So then, let’s get right into it, here is Ace Attorney Phoenix Wright.

Phoenix Wright is a rookie defense lawyer that works under his mentor Mia Fey. Unfortunately, Mia is murdered early on in the series. Due to this, Phoenix befriends Mia’s younger sister Maya. She is a medium in training, that can channel dead spirits. Because if this, when Phoenix is in trouble with a case, Maya channels Mia’s spirit. This allows Maya to look exactly like Mia, and helps gives Phoenix some advice and inspiration to help him win the case.

The show is based on the few games in the series, and when I mean based, I mean that they almost completely follow them. (Yeah, I did my research!) So, if you are someone like me that never played the games, now you have, just by watching this show. The show is really funny, and entertaining. If real life court systems were like this, it may or may not be as clogged up as they currently are, since cases don’t go longer than three days. The other characters in the show, are really good in their own unique way. The show is only 24 espoides long, so it’s just right to watch the whole series over a weekend. I watched this on the Funamation app, and I’m sure that this is on Crunchyroll as well. Either way, find it, and enjoy. Until next time Painkillers.

How It All Begins!

Good evening Leaguers, and welcome to another addition of Anime Wednesday. Now in the past, I have gone over a lot of Gundam series, and I am sure that I will cover some in the future. Today’s series is a bit different. Did you ever want to know what lead up to what happened in the original Mobile Suit Gundam series? If so, now is your chance. So without further delay, here is Mobile Suit Gundam Origin.

Mobile Fighter Ready…. FIGHT!

Good morning Painkillers, and welcome to another addition of Anime Wednesday. Today I have a good one for you, and it’s another one of my favorites. Many of you may already know what that means, that’s right we are going Gundam once again. This series is much different than the other Gundam series that I have presented in the past. So let’s get into it, here is Mobile Fighter G Gundam.

In this series, it doesn’t take place in the regular Universal Century timeline, but rather a alternate Future Century timeline. In this timeline, most of the human population currently lives on space colonies, that are assigned to the countries on Earth. The Earth is currently in ruins, and there are not many people that live there. They don’t have wars to decide things. Instead, every four years they set up a Gundam Fighting Tournament. Each country sends a fighter down to Earth to have one on one fight against each other. So basically like a robot boxing or MMA matches. The winner of the tournament, their country rules for the next four years.

The show follows Neo Japan’s Gundam fighter, Domon Kasshu. He is preparing himself for the 13th Gundam Fights. Along with his childhood friend and machanic, Rain Mikamura, they travel the Earth challenging other Gundam fighters. They also have another mission. They are looking for Domon’s older brother Kyoji, who apparently stole an experimental Dark Gundam mobile suit from the Neo Japan government.

This 49 espoide series is one of the best Gundam series out there. The style of the Gundams are so different than the other Gundams, with the stand up cockpit system that actually reacts to the pilots movement. Domon’s interactions with Rain and the other Gundam fighters helps with the uniqueness of the show, especially how things end up near the end. I believe that this is currently on Hulu, so if you haven’t seen this show before, or want to watch it again, now is the time. Until next time Painkillers.
