Saddest Anime Death

Hi, hi! Welcome to day 25 of the Anime Challenge! Today’s topic is: Saddest Anime Death!

Okay, this one is the hardest one so far because I don’t want to seem heartless by thinking one death is more sad than another. There are also plenty of anime deaths that I have yet to see.

The first anime death that comes to my mind that hit me super hard though is Ushio Okazaki from Clannad.

It was sad enough to see Nagisa die, but to see Ushio as a young child die was absolutely traumatizing.

I expected to see Nagisa die in the series once I learned of her illnesses. It’s something that happens often enough in anime but you don’t often see a child die like that. I ugly cried so hard for so long after that.

Even though, in the anime, no one died permanently, there were more than one depressing deaths. There was Fuko Ibuki, there was Yukine Miyazawa’s brother, Kotomi’s parents, Nagisa and Ushio.

For a slice of life anime that I expected to be more school oriented, Clannad made me cry a lot.

Moment That Shocked Me The Most

Hi, hi! Welcome to day 24 of the Anime Challenge! Today’s topic is: Moment that shocked me the most!

I would say with nearly every book I’ve read or every show or movie that I’ve seen, there has been enough foreshadowing for me to take good guesses at what will happen.

However, not with Shuffle! That anime threw me for such a loop.

Shuffle! is a harem anime so of course I had my one best girl I was rooting for the whole time *cough*Nerine*cough* but the other girls had great qualities too. I’m not sure I could pick a second favorite character in all honesty.

Shuffle! seemed like a nice, simple, ecchi, harem anime. The girls were constantly competing for Rin’s attention. It had typical harem episodes like girls making him food. Because of this, everything was what I expected it to be just with it’s own little character changes and quirks and twists.

However, what I did not know nor did I see coming was that Kaede was an absolute psychopath. I thought she was just the typical jealous girl. I didn’t think she’d absolutely snap and go after poor Asa like she did. With this sudden outburst, I can only imagine the fear poor Asa would have felt being suddenly attacked and screamed at like that on top of being told to just die.

It makes me cringe just thinking about it. I can understand why Kaede snapped, not that I condone it. I just never saw it coming!

The incident with Kaede isn’t the only thing in this anime that shocked me though! It’s an excellent anime and I would really like to play the visual novel someday as well. I highly recommend Shuffle! to you if you have not seen it.

So, what is an anime that had a scene that shocked you the most or that you just didn’t see coming? Let me know here or on facebook!

Favorite Attack in an Anime

Hi, hi! Welcome to day 23 of the Anime Challenge! Today’s topic is: Favorite Attack!

There are so many to choose from with all of the different mahou shoujo, fighting, fantasy style and mech anime out there. There is one specific attack that stands out and comes to my mind immediately though.

It’s when Pixy Misa turns Ryoko and Ayeka into Love Love Monsters in the Magical Girl Pretty Sammy OVA!

I loved the Tenchi Muyo!, Tenchi Universe and Tenchi in Tokyo series so much but my favorite part while watching these was the Pretty Sammy OVA I saw while watching Tenchi Muyo.

It was such a fun OVA and it was interesting to see all of these characters in a different setting and some playing different roles.

The reason I chose this ‘attack’ is that I love that it’s unconventional. She didn’t turn them into horrible monsters to destroy everything in their paths. It was just silly.
