Vampire Anime List

When you think of vampires in anime we often think of Alcuard from Helling or Abel from Trinity Blood. Here is a list of interesting vampire anime:

Continuing our Vampire list comes to the mystery vampire anime NightWalker. Originally based off of the PC game entitled Mayonaka no Tantei Night Walker created by TomBoy. The main story is covered by Shido, a vampire who wants to protect humans from monsters known as the nightbreed. Shido protects humans mainly due to the fact of the bad things he did to them in his dark vampire past. He also has to deal with the fact that he is not sure of his life when he was human. Nightwalker, although it is an older series still does a great job on storyline. Ever character plays important on how the series progresses along. There is graphic violence and some sexual content. I do not recommend this series for any one under 18. This series was intended for an older audience. Mystery, romance, and horror all come together in this series if you like vampires and want a short series to watch Nightwalker is for you.

Karin

Created by Yuna Kagesaki

Imagine if you were a vampire who instead of drinking blood from others you were a blood-producing vampire. Karin follows the story of a 16 year-old high school and her journey about becoming a full fledge vampire. Her family moved to Japan during the 21th century. Unlike her family, Karin is able to move out during the day. While she is school she meets Kenta Usui, a new student at her school and that is when things get interesting. I recommend the manga and anime to people over the age of 17 due to small references of sexual content. But overall, I recommend this anime to people who want drama, romance, and comedy all wrapped up into one.

Vampire Hunter D is also one of my personal favorites. It follows the story of a hunter named D who is half-human, half-vampire. The movie is done very well each sence is done with the upmost care. The first movie is based off of the first book in the manga series. Vampire Hunter D is one of the very first anime movie to be released outside of Japan. There was also a sequel entitled: Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust If you like a combination of the romance of Trinity Blood and the non-stop action of Hellsing than this is the movie for you.

Comic Party Volume 2 Review

aya01.jpg

From: animelab.com

Kazuki loves to make doujinshi. His dream is to become the ultimate manga artist. But due to this passion, Kazuki finds himself drifting further and further away from his girlfriend, Mizuki Takase. The world of Anime and Manga is not only a fantasy for Kazuki. It is becoming his lifestyle and his losing his normal life from friends and family. ComiPa, a massive comic convention is being treatened to end the happiness of doujinshi. Kazuki decides to join Subaru, a girl who enjoys creating her own comics and mazazines. They create the team known as Comi Rangers. Will Kazuki step up to the plate in order to have a Comic Party?

At first, I thought that this manga werid. It’s manga about the manga industry in Japan. But then, as I continued to read it began to make more sense. It is the dream we all wish to have as fans of anime or manga. To go to conventions, have fun, and make comics. What really caught my eye about Comic Party is the nice use of Otaku terminology. There are a lot of jokes based on that lifestyle and their are jokes that remind me of other anime series such as Excel Saga. Volume 2 also does a great job of covering the daily life of how it it like to be in anime or manga club. The artwork is excellent, it really helps to set the mood. I do recommend this manga to people over the age of 13.

If you like series like Genshiken or Cosplay Complex you will love the crazy world of Comic Party!

Picture from:http://www.animegalleries.net

There are so many anime podcasts out there. But, Weekly Anime Review has become one of my favorite anime podcasts. All of the reviews are done well in-depth, you are not only going to hear about the style of the anime but the reviewer will go into the storyline and also give an excellent educational background about each anime. Weekly Anime Review also gives you a chance to see if it is really worth buying that anime. Weekly goes into detail about topics such as dvd features, voice-acting, anime conventions, and other great anime-themed podcasts to listen to.
