  • Bakemonogatari

    ***NO SPOILERS***

    Bakemonogatari is a story that revolves around a student named Arararagi and his... how should we say, unusual adventures. You see, in the week of Spring Break Ararararagi met an unusual oddity; a vampire. Events began to unfold over the week that led to our main character having to get cured of his unwanted vampiric powers. Due to Arararararagi's strange encounter he now had a heightened proclivity to noticing these oddities, and coupled with his personality that would have him risk his life to save anyone he starts to help others resolve their problems with the monsters and gods that are haunting them. When the story begins Ararararararagi is out walking to school one day when he notices a classmate. Hitagi Senjougahara. Now, he doesn't know her well at all, but when she slips and falls from a staircase he tries to catch her. He accomplishes this only to notice a startling fact; Senjougahara is weightless. While she initially viciously rebuffs his help, Arararararararagi is determined to assist Senjougahara no matter what the cost to his own well-being may be. And so the story of Bakemonogatari begins.

    ***NO SPOILERS***


    Mirai Nikki (or The Future Diary) is the story about twelve people who have been thrust into a battle royale by the god of time and space; Deus Ex Machina. Now Deus, his body is falling apart and his power is fading, so he enters these people in a madcap elimination game in order to find out who he wants to succeed him. But that wouldn't be interesting enough, would it? There's a stipulation. Each of the twelve keep diaries based on what interests them. When the clock starts on this insanity the diaries transform. They now have the power to tell the future based on whatever the owner used it for prior to the events unfolding. These new future diaries are both the contestants greatest strength as well as their most crippling weakness. This due to the fact that not only can they be obfuscated and over-relied on, but also they're a literal weak point as their destruction kills the owner. At the forefront of this symphony of destruction is Yukiteru, a rather weak and helpless boy who is the First amongst the numbered entrants and so he is the target of much of their machinations. Will Yuki be able to stave off the constant threats of death and reign supreme or will he be taken down under the might of eleven other twisted individuals each with their own reasons to thirst for power? There's only one way to find out...

  • 31/31 - Akira

    3 1


    In the wake of World War III in 1988 after a mysterious explosion, the city of Tokyo is leveled into a ruined crater with no buildings left standing. What looks like a bomb decimates the houses, the population, and everything else within the radius of the shockwave. 31 years after the event in 2019 a new city rises from the ashes: Neo-Tokyo. The sprawling metropolis is every bit a dystopia, where many residents live in squalor and poverty whist the dark hand of the military looms overhead. The city is home to two rival gangs: the Clowns and the Capsules. It is in the Capsules that we are introduced to the two main characters in the film; Tetsuo and Kaneda. One day whilst on a journey to attack the Clowns Tetsuo runs into a strange kid with the face of an old man, and is thrown from his bike trying to swerve to avoid him. Unfortunately the military was looking for the very person Tetsuo came close to colliding with and in one fell swoop they capture them both. As he slowly starts making sense of what is happening he realizes a startling fact; the kid is a psychic. And that's not all, as something's awoken his own latent powers aswell, and he now has the ability to unleash havoc and destruction upon the world. From then on the central conflict of the film is unleashed as the taste of power slowly corrupts Tetsuo and comes to a head against Kaneda's unshakeable spirit. And above it all looms the shadow of a mysterious figure that is only discussed in hushed whispers, a shadow known as Akira...
