Donquixote Doflamingo

Donquixote Doflamingo is a member of the Shickibukai in One Piece. He’s captain of the Doflamingo pirates and King of Dressrosa. Under the alias “Joker” he’s an underground broker. His bounty reached 340 million beli before he became a shickibukai. For most of the first half of the series he remain mysterious, but he’s since become the focus of the series. Donquixote’s abilities haven’t been clearly defined yet however, it seems to be that it was related to strings in some way.

What makes Donquixote such a good anime villian is his seeming sadistic nature. Donquixote has a rather carefree personality on the surface and he appears to be completely fearless. He generally gleeful when being cruel to his opponents. His string ability has a puppeteer effect, and he seems to enjoy pitting comrades against each other. He shows glee at the death and mayhem during the war. He loved killing Gekko Moriah (even though he failed), he had no issue selling slaves. Despite his appearance Donquixote Doflamingo is clearly a man without much morals and his cruelty know no bounds.

Kagome Higurashi and Inuyasha

Inuyasha was initially angry at Kagome due to her uncanny resemblence to his former love Kikyo (who he thought betrayed him). He soon realized that she was not Kikyo and began to show her kindness. Their relationship is seen and discussed often by their friends. Throughout the series their relationship changes from being close friends to falling in love. They were separated for a few years after Naraku’s death. Soon, Kagome was able to return and marries Inuyasha, and is living  in the feudal era as Inuyasha’s wife.

Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan) – Episode 22: Recap and Review

The Defeated: 57th Expedition Beyond the Walls

p

Can this weeks episode top last weeks? What are Mikasa and Levi (two of the best soldiers so far) capable of doing and how would they do it? Those were some of the question I was waiting all week to be answered. We all knew Levi was skilled but to be able to singled handily take down an intelligent titan was amazing. I love Mikasa her love for Eren is admirable but she could have ruined Levi’s plan with her single mindedness. She needs to get a clearer head. The return home was rather daunting with the families of the dead soldiers being existed to see the family members again. Knowing that they were killed and being reminded that they had families was somber.


th

This reality prompted many of the soldiers to ask “How long will I live” or “How will I died”. Levi further showed his realist view of death or lack of sentiment when two soldiers pleaded with Commander Erwin to retrieve their comrades body. He told them that ” whether you have the body, dead is dead”. Dieter, one of those soldiers question whether Levi or Erwin ” have any human feelings at all”. Dieter being sentimental decided to get his friends body resulting in a bad situation. After, Levi showed that he did remember his fallen comrades by keeping a piece of their uniforms which he gave to Dieter.


n

Petra father talking so happily about his daughter was truly was the most heart breaking moment (I instantly thought of her brutal death). This episode didn’t feature a great deal of action but I think it was appropriate. This series is a great at creating engrossing narrative and building a supportive atmosphere. This episode manage to open with intense action then seamlessly shift into more depressing tone while maintain the series quality. Simply another great episode. So did you enjoy this episode like the last? Was it as sad for you as it was for me? What do you think of Levi’s  sympathy?

Your Anime Crush

Mikasa Ackerman

Mikasa Ackerman is my anime crush (I guess). If you don’t know  she is one of the title characters of Attack on Titan. What’s not to love about Mikasa. She’s loyal, pretty and strong. She’s a little dark due to the fact that her parents were murdered. She loves Eren and Armin fiercely and will do any thing for them. Mikasa has a strong sense of morality. I do think her dependence on Eren is a little unhealthy but nobody is perfect. She’s brave and was the top graduate of her class. Her ability to fight is impressive and I think she’s bad ass. Mikasa is a strong character with good morals, a good heart and great fighting skills.

Anime You Want to See But Haven’t Seen Yet

Fang with his six wings in manga Air Gear.

Air Gear

Air Gear  is a shōnen manga written and illustrated by Ito Ōgure. Air Gear main protagonist Itsuki Minami  also known as “Baby Face” or “Crow” to his friends. The characters use Air Treks, an “in-universe invention derived from inline skates”. The characters compete against each other in teams. The series concluded on May 28, 2012 with Chapter 357. I’ve always wanted to read this manga and watch the anime it seems like a very interesting. I have seen some of the art of the manga and I think its very well done, great detail and well done character designs. I think the battle style is also original and impressively complex. I will begin reading the manga at some point, but so far I haven’t yet.
