I’ve never read the Bleach manga, but I’m a fan of the anime, though I do believe that it’s good that it finally ended. Dragging a story can lead to horrible circumstances, hence ruining the entire plot and making it seem awfully complicated.
Anyway, we all know that Ichigo is the strongest character in the series, so a “Top 5 Strongest Bleach Characters” would not be fair. Instead, lets do a Top 5 Shinigami Captains. We all loved the Captains, right?
5. Jūshirō Ukitake & Shunsui Kyōraku
I consider both of these as one Captain. After all, they’re inseparable and they fought the Arrancar side by side. They seem equal to me in terms of strength, and they make a good team because of this. They may not be as strong as the other Captains, but they’re still a formidable team.
Bankai: Not yet revealed.
Princess Mononoke was one of the very few Studio Ghibli movies that I had not watched, until today. And now I regret that I had not watched this sooner. A masterpiece such as this deserves higher priority. If any of you have not yet experienced this film, then I highly recommend that you leave everything and watch it now.

Right the first thing I wanna say about Last Exile is that it takes a couple of episodes to really warm up to. You keep looking left and right for the first couple of episodes wondering what the hell is going on and when is that narrator going to give us a nice little prologue…. but it never happens. You’re left to fend for yourself and I’ll admit there were a couple of moments when I thought I might drop it but believe me i’m glad I didn’t. Last Exile is a great roller coaster ride that I think would appeal to a large demographic. It pulls you in and the plot keeps you hooked till the last episode. The only thing that I found lacking (aside from the first couple of episodes) was the ending which, though not exactly bad, still left a slightly sour taste in my mouth. But I reiterate it wasn’t a bad ending at all. GONZO pulled out all the stops for this little gem of an anime and it’s one of the best sci-fi animes I’ve seen in ages… Oh and on a side note, Claus reminds me of little Anakin whenever he puts on his helmet and goggles.
It has been sixty years since King Gilgamesh defeated “the tower” single-handedly, and now the tower is reborn again. The “Summer of Anu” is a season that comes every few years during which the powers of the monsters within the Tower wane thanks to the grace of the great god Anu. Each Summer of Anu, the armies of the Uruk Kingdom secure their strongholds within the Tower, aiming to eventually conquer the upper floors. The story begins with the third Summer of Anu. The city of Meskia is the first stronghold built on the first level of the Tower. In addition to the Uruk Army preparing for their third campaign against Druaga, innumerable adventurers called “climbers” have been drawn to Meskia by rumors of a legendary treasure believed to be hidden on the top floor of the Tower. Jil, a young guardian, has traveled to the tower and Meskia, the last safe stop on the first floor of the tower. Jil wants to gain the Blue Crystal Rod, the legendary treasure that resides on the top floor of the tower. On the top floor is the evil lord Druaga, and numerous monsters along the way.
Anime always manages to introduce us to exciting new characters, each unique in their own way. Take a look at our Top 5 Male Anime Characters. You may not agree with this list, but these are my top 5 characters so it’s up to me to decide. If you have your own list, let us know in the comments below.
5. Kuroko from Kuroko no Basket
Kuroko is a former member of a famous basket team. However, no one knows about it. That is because Kuroko is a passer. He uses his lack of presence in order to quickly pass the ball around the court without his opponents noticing. In high school, he meets a talented man named Kagami and Kuroko makes it his goal to become the shadow in Kagami’s light.
Where I’m living, July brings with it unbearable heat, sun tans and the occasional rainfall but thankfully it also heralds the start of the new summer season of anime. Now every season has the good, the bad and the ugly and this season seems like no different. So which animes am I keeping track of this season? To answer this question you have to understand the fact that I’m not the kinda guy who starts 10-15 animes at once and then drops the bad ones. Yes my phase of “I’ll try anything once” is well and truly over… I think everyone goes through this after they’ve seen a couple hundred animes. So how do I decide which animes to watch? Well my first source is usually ANN. Anime News Network‘s preview guide is a pretty good way to see what’s out there. After ANN I look at a couple of blogs like Metanorm to finalize my choices. A pretty roundabout way I know but experience has taught me be on the safe side (damn you’d think I was talking about a business investment here).
Well anyways here are my picks for the season:
As you may have comprehended from my previous opinions on Studio Ghibli movies, I am a huge fan of anime, or Studio Ghibli in particular. Once again, I watched a Studio Ghibli movie and I am here to share my opinion with you. This time, however, it might be a little different from what you were expecting.
