Anime Characters Sorted Into Hogwarts Houses: Attack on Titan Edition!

Happy Sunday/Monday and welcome to another blog post! I did a blog post like this a while back with Sailor Moon, but I had so much fun doing it I thought I would continue this series by combining another one of my favorite animes with one of my all time favorite movie series to bring you another “Anime Characters Sorted Into Hogwarts Houses!” blog post with Attack on Titan! If you haven’t read my first one, “Anime Characters Sorted into Hogwarts Houses” (The official name to this series, as of right now…tehe) is a blog series where I play sorting hat and sort different anime characters to the four Hogwarts Houses based on what we as viewers know about them. Now how I thought of this I have no clue, but if we can take a quiz to see what house we sorted into, why can’t our favorite anime characters be too? So let’s pretend these characters are in the world of Harry Potter and learning magic and fighting a war against He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named instead of Titans (I honestly don’t know who would be worst to fight, Voldemort or Titans??) and get right into it! Here’s “Anime Characters Sorted into Hogwarts Houses” Attack on Titan Edition!

Note: If you haven’t seen Season 2 and are planning on watching it, I would not read the reasons on why I sorted them into the houses (if you really want to know, you can look at the pictures) for there may be spoilers.

Eren Jeager

Eren is very brave, passionate, strong-willed person but also very impulsive and sometimes reckless with his decisions. All of these traits land him in house Gryffindor. Congrats Eren Jeager, you are a Gryffindor!

Mikasa Ackerman

Due to her loyalty to Eren she is the first to land in Team Hufflepuff! Though if she was really under the sorting hat, she would choose to be in Gryffindor to be with Eren. Congrats Mikasa Ackerman, you are a Hufflepuff!

Armin Arlelt

As much as I would want the main trio to be like the trio in Harry Potter and all be in Gryffindor, Armin would be sorted into house Ravenclaw. He is the smartest of the group, always curious about the outside word and always the brains behind every plan of attack. I do admit Armin has the bravery of a Gryffindor since he is timid and small. Congrats Armin Arlelt, you are a Ravenclaw!

Reiner Braun

Reiner would make the sorting hat question where to sort him, but after some thought I would think that Reiner would be sorted into House Gryffindor. I know he may be set out as the “bad Titan” and yes I do absolutely agree that he has made some bad choices and has done some terrible things, but I can still see him as a Gryffindor. In season 1, all the cadets saw Reiner as a “big brother” figure who was very passionate and honest. But in season 2 we see him fight emotionally through his choices as a soldier and a warrior. He’s very reckless but also very brave and that is what lands him in house Gryffindor. So congrats Reiner Braun, you are a Gryffindor!

Bertholdt Hoover

Standing by Reiner is the shy and quiet Bertholdt. He is very loyal to Reiner his childhood friend and is very aware of the choices he and Reiner has made and is willing to go through with it all. For his loyalty Bertholdt has landed a spot on Team Hufflepuff! So congrats Bertholdt Hoover, you are a Hufflepuff!

Annie Leonhart

The next is Annie Leonhart. In season 1 you see Annie shy away from making any friends with the cadets and her true desires show when she is revealed as the Female Titan. Annie is very ambitious, she showed her strong desire to succeed with capturing Eren and was upset when she failed. That and her sense of self-preservation lands her a spot as the first Slytherin in the Attack on Titan cast! So congrats Annie Leonhart, you are a Slytherin!

Christa Lenz/Historia Reiss

In the first season you see Christa as this sweet kind girl always helping people in aid but she was known to be meek as well. But in season 2 when she finally accepts herself as Historia Reiss, though she is still afraid facing Titans outside the wall, Historia still charges into the face of danger. For that Historia shows traits that puts her in house Gryffindor. So congrats Historia Reiss, you are a Gryffindor!

Ymir Fritz

The next is Ymir Fritz. In the beginning she seems very selfish, uncooperative and exploitative but in season 2 you see a different side of Ymir, especially around Historia. She shows so much love towards Historia to the fact that she would do anything of her. Her love towards Historia plus Ymir’s cunning personality shows traits that puts her in house Slytherin. So congrats Ymir Fritz, you are a Slytherin!

Connie Springer

Next is Connie Springer. Connie is very outgoing and impetuous. He loves expressing his opinions and goofing around and messing with his friends. After a few close encounters with the Titans his naive enthusiasm falls away becoming more serious but is still very eager to prove his worth. He remains optimistic always caring for the well-being of others and always willing to help in any way he can. For that he shows traits that puts him in house Gryffindor for his sense of courage and bravery he shows. So congrats Connie Springer, you are a Gryffindor!

Sasha Braus

Next is one of my favorite characters Sasha Braus. She is shown in season 1 to be timid and prone to make mistakes under stressful situations. During great stress, Sasha finds that food puts her mind at ease so she is very compulsive in her desire to eat, which leads her to make choices like stealing food. She’s very loyal to her friends and the Survey Corp as well as compassionate about food which are traits that puts her in team Hufflepuff! So congrats Sasha Braus, you are a Hufflepuff!

Jean Kirschtein

The next in the cadets is Jean Kirschtein. Jean is very blunt, he speaks his mind and that as well of being extremely hot-headed which got him in a few heated fights with Eren. Despite all of that, Jean is a natural leader, being able to understand others and assess situations. He may present himself as self-centered, he places the lives of his comrades on high value and is horrified when he leaves helpless allies behind to save himself and others. Those traits put him in house Slytherin. So congrats Jean Kirschtein, you are a Slytherin!

Levi Ackerman

How could I do this blog post without mentioning my husbando?? What can I say about Levi that I haven’t said already… well that’s start with the fact that Levi is not very approachable. He rarely shows emotion which causes people to think he is cold. But despite that Levi has a strong sense of morality and empathy to human life; one example is when it was revealed that Titans might have once been humans which disturbed him greatly knowing that he was unknowingly killing humans. He is very loyal to Erwin, the Survey Corps and humanity. His dedication to the Survey Corps and his loyalty to Erwin is sorted into house Slytherin! So congrats Levi Ackerman you are a Hufflepuff!

Erwin Smith

Speaking of loyalty, the next character is Erwin Smith. Erwin, like most characters in this anime, is a complex character. He is serious, always planning for the future. He is a leader who is very grim. He accepts all news good and bad with the ultimate goal that humanity can once again rise up and become the dominant species over the Titans. Because Erwin is cunning, a strong leader and very achievement-oriented that puts him in house Slytherin! So congrats Erwin Smith, you are a Slytherin!

Hange Zoe

The last character is the one and only Hange Zoe. Hange broadcasts her emotions in the most extreme way. She is a energetic and quirky scientist though in time of stress she is able to keep a level head. Hange is a genius. She is able to figure out complex problems and create plans for her teammates to carry out. She takes her research on the Titans very seriously, as she was very upset when the Titans she was doing research on were killed. For those reasons Hange is sorted into House Ravenclaw. So congrats Hange Zoe, you are a Ravenclaw!

Conclusion

So that’s it for this episode! I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did putting it together! Let me know how you thought I did playing sorting hat as well as other anime I should play this game with in the comments below.

I hope you guys are having a great start to your December, if you follow me on social media you know this but this year for December I am doing things differently. Last year for December I did this thing called “Doodlemas” where everyday I made new doodles and did blog posts twice a week. This year with my store opening and I’m blogging twice a week (or trying to) I need to put my time and effort into getting my store out there. But don’t worry, I do have something planned something close to Christmas. It will be something similar to what I did for Halloween, so look forwards to that coming up. Until then, I’m going to try to get new blog posts up twice a week but I can’t promise you that there will be two a week. I hope you can understand and still enjoy the content I am putting up because I sure do enjoy posting it for you.

My True Number 1 Husbando!

Happy Sunday/Monday and welcome to another blog post! First of all before I get into this blog post I just wanted to thank all the good feedback I am already getting on my Etsy shop opening up! I’ve worked really hard on it and believe me it was so so so hard for me to share with you what I’ve been working on for the past year and a half before it was ready but it is up and running! That all said, let’s get into the blog post!

Do you guys remember one of my first anime blog posts “My Top 10 Anime Crushes?” Well I have to admit to you guys something… My top spot for Top 10 Anime Crushes aka my number one Husbando has changed!

According to my original list, Kyo Sohma was my number one Husbando and as much as I do love Kyo for his charming good looks and short but sweet temper I feel my love for his revolves around being more nostalgic because Fruits Basket was one of the first animes I watched as a young girl.

So who has taken the top spot for number one Husbando??

**drum roll please**

My number one Husbando is the one, the only, Levi Ackerman from Attack on Titan!

So Why is Levi Ackerman my number one Husbando? Well…

His Style

Who doesn’t love his cravat?

Also his cleaning uniform. So adorable.

His Obsession with being Clean

One of the best episodes on season 1 is the episode when everyone is cleaning and Levi is giving the cadets (especially Eren) a hard time because they can’t clean up to his standards.

He’s such a Badass

But Levi’s obsession with being clean doesn’t keep him from being such a badass when it comes to fighting Titans. He always manages to keep his cool when in battle and many of his kills are done solo. And after a battle, he always stays humble and makes sure to clean his blades.

He’s been through a lot

He has lost a lot of people in his life, and though he may seem cold hearted to some, he still sees faith in humanity and keeps composure.

He’s Awkward

Like everyone else, Levi also has issues and is awkward (but in an adorable way). He’s OCD wanting surroundings and himself to be spotless, he doesn’t like being touched, in case he gets dirty… all going back to his obsession with being clean.

All together it is hard to not love Levi.

So for a while I thought that Levi Ackerman was the one true Husbando… but then recently I found a competitor for the number one spot!

So who could be wonderful enough to not only get high up already on my Husbando list but fight for the number one spot against Levi Ackerman???

**drum roll again please**

My second number one is Katsuki Bakugo (Aka Kacchan)from My Hero Academia!

So why is Katsuki Bakugo is the perfect competitor for my number one spot against Levi?

His Style

You can’t control his mane, but why would you want to control it?

Plus his Hero Outfit matches his Quirk Perfect!

He’s complicated

He has a complicated personality especially when it comes to Deku. He has a very teenage delinquent attitude which makes him seem very anti-hero to some, which could have been dated all the way back to his early childhood days when he was constantly praised for his powerful quirk.. He wants to be the number one hero and seeing someone like Deku who was once “Quirkless” start to surpass him upsets him.

His Temper

You can not love Kacchan’s temper… especially when it comes to his classmates. So many times in the series, I have found myself laughing out loud when perks of Kacchan loses his temper when his classmates say something funny or sometimes brutally honest to him.

He’s Smart

Though he sometimes makes irrational decisions (especially when it comes to fighting Deku), Kacchan is really smart. He puts thought into his plan of fighting and studies his enemies. I think that’s another reason why he gets so upset when it comes to Deku, Deku suddenly got this powerful Quirk out of “nowhere” and Kacchan doesn’t know how to react to it.

Kacchan is also really book smart. To get into UA, you have to be very smart as well as have a good quirk, and while Deku spent his lifetime studying books and other hero’s quirks, Kacchan got into UA with flying colors.

He’s relatable

Despite his complicated personality and short temper, Kacchan is still human. He has emotions and though he still has a lot to work on he still shows sign of being a true hero for the people. He has his pride, and hates to see it broken. He’s relatable to people in more than one aspect, and that makes him lovable as a character as well as a wonderful husbando.

So how do I choose between these two wonderful contestants? They both have great aspects to them like I stated that make them both worthy to be my number 1. I’ve thought about this for a long time and after thinking and doing tons of research I have come to a conclusion…

My True Number 1 Husbando is…

**drumroll for the last time…*

THEY BOTH ARE MY NUMBER 1 HUSBANDO!

I can’t decide which one is better so I won’t decide. They both win in my book!

Conclusion

Now that I have finally got all of that off my shoulders, I hope you enjoyed this blog post! As much as I love doing makeup reviews and makeup related posts, I really do miss a good anime post like this and I can’t wait to do more. Who is your number one husbando? What anime are you currently watching now? Let me know those and what to blog about next in the comments below, I am always up to new ideas! I hope you guys are having a wonderful start of your week and I will see you on the next blog post!

If you need me I’ll be drooling over my husbandos ;).

XOXO,
Kat

Anime to Watch During Halloween

Happy week of Halloween and welcome to another blog post! We are halfway through the Halloween posts and I realized that I haven’t done an anime post yet for this Halloween week! So I thought it would be about time I added one in for my fellow weebs and nerds out there! Halloween brings a lot of fun times from haunted houses to Halloween parties, but sometimes it’s just a good idea to stay home all bundled up and watch some good anime. In the beginning of the week I talked about Halloween movies to watch and just in case you are more in the anime mood instead of a Halloween movie (or you have watched them all already and need something new to watch) I thought I would share some anime shows to watch this Halloween Season! So let’s get into it, here are some anime to watch during Halloween!

Tokyo Ghoul

The first show to watch during Halloween is Tokyo Ghoul. Tokyo Ghoul is about a boy named Kaneki whose normal life is completely changed when he is changed to a ghoul and has to live in the world as a half ghoul-half human. This show is great for Halloween because it has that creepy-fantasy side but also a slice of life side to the anime with the struggle between humans and ghouls trying to exist in the same world.

Highschool of the Dead

Speaking of a mix of creepy-fantasy and slice of life, the next anime to watch during Halloween is Highschool of the Dead. Highschool of the Dead is set in modern day Japan where the world is suddenly by a deadly pandemic where humans are turning into zombies and a group of high schoolers have to try to survive this zombie apocalypse. If you read my Anime Tag blog post you know that I have mixed feelings towards this show. Though I think it is a good show and perfect for Halloween, I also think that this show tries to fanservice a little too much with sexualizing the female characters.

Death Parade

The next is an anime I have been interested in for a while and recently watched earlier this year and that is Death Parade. Death Parade is about a place called Quindecim where humans after death are challenged to a game and ultimately get judged by arbiters to see who goes gets reincarnated or thrown into the void. The main character Decim, an arbiter, starts questioning the true meaning of being an arbiter after meeting a strange black haired girl who enters Quindecim. The reason why it took me so long to finally watch this show because all I’ve heard is on how sad and depressing this show is. Which the show is about death, so I can see how it is sad, but I am so glad I watched it! Though it had some really sad moments and I did emotionally break down after watching a certain episode the show is so well done. So if you are in the mood to get all the feels, Death Parade is the way to go!

Attack on Titan

This is the part of the blog post where you just knew either Sailor Moon or Attack on Titan would pop up sometime, and this time it is Attack on Titan’s turn! Anytime I can recommend an anime, I always recommend Attack on Titan because I love it so much, especially season 2. So of course with Halloween, who wouldn’t want to watch the struggle for the existence of mankind against Titans… that just screams Halloween! Quick little update, I haven’t been able to watch the Attack on Titan Junior High or Attack on Titan No Regrets yet but I have gotten some new Attack on Titan books that I’ve started to dive in and will let you know how I feel about those!

Vampire Knight

The next anime is a favorite from my early anime watching days and that is Vampire Night. Vampire Knight is about a girl named Yuki Cross who attends Cross Academy where there is a “Day Class” aka the human class and the “Night Class” vampire class and it is her job as well as her mysterious (but handsome) friend Zero Kiryu to protect them. Along the way Yuki find out that Zero has been struggling to fight his transformation into a vampire and tries to help him live as a vampire while recovering her own lost memories of the past. This show is great for Halloween because who doesn’t love a love triangle without the sparkles? (haha get it, cause of Twilight.. Ha ok I thought I was punny.)

Chibi Vampire Karin

So I honestly forgot all about this anime until I was starting this blog post. This next anime is called Chibi Vampire Karin. Chibi Vampire Karin is about a vampire named Karin who is unlike the rest of her vampire family. Karin doesn’t feed on blood but instead produces it. Since she produces it instead of feed on it she is forced to bite others to expel the extra blood or she has major nosebleeds. Other than that Karin lives a normal highschool life when a new transfer student Kenta comes and learns her secret. The show then revolves around Kenta trying to live a “normal life” as trouble starts happening around them as well as feelings for each other. This anime is just so much fun to watch! It has the vampire blood side of the show but also the funny moments like when Karin has her crazy nose bleeds and cute moments between Karin and Kenta. Ah writing this makes me want to rewatch this series again!

Ouran Highschool Host Club Halloween Episode

Now this anime has nothing to do with fantasy or Halloween but the series does have a Halloween episode that I could not put in this post. If you don’t know Ouran Highschool Host Club is about a girl named Haruhi who is stuck in a Host club because on her first day she accidently knocks over an expensive vase and is told to repay it through becoming the Host Club’s errand boy. The host club decides to run a Halloween event in which teams try to scare each other. I love this episode because you just get to see the host club just be so pure especially around Haruhi. If you haven’t seen Ouran High School you should at least watch this episode if you love Halloween and a little slice of life.

Conclusion

And that’s all the animes! I hope you guys enjoyed this blog post as much as I did putting it all together. Like I said before we are halfway through these posts so that means we are almost to Halloween! Do you guys have any plans for Halloween? Are you trick or treating this year? Let me know these answers plus other ideas for blog posts in the comments below. I am always up to new ideas for blog posts! Until tomorrow, I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day and I will see you in the next blog post!
Stay Spooky!
XOXO,

My Favorite Anime Characters!

Happy Sunday/Monday and welcome to another blog post! Today I wanted to share with you my favorite anime characters! I’ve shared my anime crushes and my anime girl crushes before but I haven’t shared just my favorite characters. Have you ever watched a show and there’s a character (or a few characters) that you just fall in love with? Not in love like towards a husbando or a wifey but you just can’t help but fall in love with for being awesome. So without further ado, here are my favorite anime characters! You will notice that some of the characters come from the same show so I guess that shows how awesome the anime is if there’s a lot of lovable characters.

Ikalgo from Hunter X Hunter

The first character is actually the character that made me want to do this blog post and that character is Ikalgo from Hunter X Hunter. Ikalgo is an octopus like Chimera Ant from the Chimera Ant Arc who used to be a officer but was turned over after having an encounter with one of the main characters Killua (don’t want to say any spoilers for anyone who hasn’t seen the series). I love Ikalgo so much because after joining the gang he is so loyal to Killua. Plus he’s the comedic relief in the season as well.

Seiya Kou from Sailor Moon Stars

How could I do an anime blog post and not have a Sailor Moon character in it?! One of my favorite seasons (maybe my favorite season of all time) of Sailor Moon would be the 5th and final season Sailor Stars. One of the reasons why I love this season is because this character. His name is Seiya Kou otherwise known as Sailor Star Fighter. I love him because he is so in love with Usagi and I am all for team Seiya and Usagi. He cares about her so much and would do anything for her and even though I do love Mamoru and Usagi I still would have loved to see Seiya and Usagi together.

Sasha Blouse from Attack on Titan

Now we are at that part where multiple characters come from the same show. And to start off is Sasha Blouse from Attack on Titan. She is a member of the Survey Corpse as well as Eren and the gang but is more of the laid back chilled characters. In season one you knew her as the one who loved food but in Season 2 you get to know more of her as a character which is great. If you have watched Attack on Titan you know how gory, serious and intense the show is so when there is a comic relief you cherish it because then you know the show is going to throw something intense your way. Sasha Blouse is that comic relief.

Hange Zoe from Attack on Titan

Another favorite character from Attack on Titan is squad leader Hange Zoe. I love her so much because she sees the Titans more than just predators. Whenever she gets the slightest chance to learn more about the Titans she jumps right into it with big eyes and excitement. With her influence, the Survey Corpse are not just trying to kill all Titans but learn about them as well.

Abel Nightroad from Trinity Blood

I’ve talked about this show before but if you haven’t read my last anime blog post where I first talked about Trinity Blood I just said that when I was little and first started watching anime I would sneak downstairs to the basement of the house that I grew up in to watch Trinity Blood and other animes because my parents wouldn’t let me stay up to watch it (I worded it wrong in the last post, I said in the other one that my parents wouldn’t let me watch it not because of the anime but because it was too late at night and I should be in bed, so my bad). Now when I was younger I was more into the Magical Girl genre with Sailor Moon and Cardcaptor Sakura then the darker let alone any anime about religion so why was I willing to sneak to the basement to watch Trinity Blood? The characters is one of the big reasons why I kept going back for more. One of the characters is the main character Abel Nightroad. Abel has two sides which makes me love him. He has the serious side when he’s on a mission and then at other times he’s a child stuck in an adult’s body, especially when it comes with finding food. Also when a friend is in need of someone Abel listens and is there for his friends. He makes a worthy good main character, worth enough to name my car after.

Ion Fortuna from Trinity Blood

Another character I love from Trinity Blood is Ion Fortuna. Ion is not only a Methuselah (aka a vampire according to humans) but the Earl of Memphis. How Ion’s, Abel’s and Esther Blanchett’s (I talked about her in the last anime blog post) path cross is because Ion was sent from Empress Augusta Vradica as a secret envoy to talk to Cardinal Caterina about taking a step toward peace between vampires and humans. The meeting was interrupted by an attack and then betrayed by his best friend after that Abel and Esther try to get him to Cardinal Caterina. I love Ion because in the few episodes he is you see him grow. Before everything happened Ion hated humans (or Terrans as the Methuselah would call them) who were outside of the Empire but after spending some time with Esther he has matured and have had a change of heart when it comes to Terrans. He even finds himself having feelings for Esther which I am totally down for.

Seth Nightlord from Trinity Blood

My last favorite character from Trinity Blood is Seth Nightlord. You first see Seth as this cute, cheery little town girl selling tea and helping Esther and Ion on there adventure but then she ends up revealing to the gang that she is the true Empress Augusta Vradica of the New Empire who has been in hiding in case of an assassination attempt (which spoiler alert, there was an attempt). We also find out that she is Abel’s youngest sibling (which I should have known, their personalities are similar) and that their older brother is up to no good (don’t want to spoil it). I love her so much because she is such a lovable character and just brings a smile to your face. Also who else loves the name Seth for a girl? I know I do.

Conclusion

So that’s all my favorite characters! I hope you all enjoyed this blog post as much as I did writing it! I just wanted to say before I end this blog post that these are my favorite characters personally and no way in any shape or form by sharing these characters are saying that they should be everyone’s favorite characters or that they are better than other characters, because there are some awesome characters out there in the anime world, I just have a special love for these individual characters for own reasons. Everyone has different opinions on characters and different reasons to love or favorite a certain character, these are just mine that I wanted to share. That being said I would love to hear what are your favorite characters and why you love them in the comments below as well as any ideas for more anime blogs. I hope you guys have a wonderful start of your week and I will see you soon in another blog post!

XOXO,
Kat

Characters I Want to Cosplay!

Happy Sunday/Monday and welcome to another blog post! It’s finally October so you know what that means… it’s time to celebrate the best time of the year with Halloween blog posts! So to start out I thought that I would talk about what cosplays I would love to do one day! In the past few months I’ve been really inspired (with the help of Kelly Eden and her friends and Jessica Nigri) to want to get into cosplaying. I’ve always loved the idea of it and how cosplayers can bring a character to life just with an outfit and a wig! Also I love the idea of working on something and being able to show it off at a convention and see other cosplayers work as well and build off of it. And with Halloween just around the corner (heads up, there is going to be a Halloween costume post coming this month so look forward to that), I would love to think I could go to anime conventions, afford the cosplays and have the self confidence to do it but since I can’t right now all I can do is work on those things and plan out the ones I would love to do!.

I split the cosplays in three separate parts: Individual, Couples and lastly Groups. That being said, let’s get right into it! Here are Characters I Want to Cosplay!

Individual

Sailor Moon

So of course with my love for Sailor Moon, Usagi aka Sailor moon would make my Cosplay list. But there are more than one version I would like to cosplay. These include:

Sailor Moon in her original Sailor Suit,

The suit in armor (found the photo on Pinterest and loved it),

Usagi in her school uniform,

Punk Usagi,

And Usagi in casual clothes.

Princess Serenity/Neo-Queen Serenity

Of course if I want to cosplay Sailor Moon, then naturally I would want to cosplay Princess Serenity and then Neo-Queen Serenity. I’ve always loved the dress since I watched Sailor Moon as a young girl and would love to be able to wear the dress and portray that character.

Luna

When I was little and I watched Luna transform from a cat to a human In Sailor Moon S: Hearts in Ice I knew I loved how cute she was. Now knowing that cosplay is a thing as an adult I would love to one day be able to bring that childhood dream into life!

Wicked Lady

Wicked Lady is one of my favorite villains in Sailor Moon so I would love to be able to cosplay her.

As well as the punk Usagi picture I found I found a punk Wicked Lady as well that would look awesome.

Ochako Uraraka

My latest anime obsession has been the show My Hero Academia. One of my favorite characters is name Ochako Uraraka and she is just the cutest! Just like Sailor Moon there are a couple different ways I would like to cosplay Ochako.

Ochako in her school uniform,

In her superhero outfit,

In Deku’s superhero outfit,

And my favorite in Katsuki’s superhero outfit.

Now I don’t know if you have seen My Hero Academia or not, but it looks like the show is leaning towards Ochako and Deku getting together, but I would love to see it turn around and Ochako and Katsuki get together. If you’ve seen My Hero Academia tell me what you think? Team Deku or Team Katsuki?

Attack on Titan Girls

We all know my love for Attack on Titan and if I were to cosplay I would be two characters:

Mikasa Ackerman

And after watching Season 2, I would love to cosplay Christa, or should I say…

Historia Reiss

Studio Ghibli Girls

I love Studio Ghibli and one day I would love to be able to cosplay some of my favorite characters. Some included are:

Sophie Hatter from Howl’s Moving Castle

And

San from Princess Mononoke

Sakura Kinomoto

Other than Sailor Moon, Cardcaptor Sakura was one of the first Magical Girls I was introduced to as a young girl. Cardcaptor Sakura will always be one of my favorite shows from my childhood. I love this dress from the Cardcaptor Sakura Movie 2: The Sealed Card.

Esther Blanchett

Last but not least in the Individual section is Sister Esther Blanchett from Trinity Blood. I loved this show when I was first started watching anime, I remember sneaking downstairs to watch this and other shows on Funimation because my parents wouldn’t let me watch it upstairs. I found this photo on Pinterest and I just love the extra details on her outfit.

Couples

If I could find someone who would cosplay them with me these are the Couples cosplay I would love to get the chance to cosplay.

Sophie and Howl from Howl’s Moving Castle

San and Ashitaka from Princess Mononoke

Father Abel and Sister Esther from Trinity Blood

Sakura and Syaoran from Cardcaptor Sakura

Pink and Green Ranger from MIghty Morphin PowerRangers

Childhood show I loved! I’d even be ok with the white ranger!

Spider-Man and Gwen Stacy

Can’t forget my love for super-heroes!

Groups

Last but not least, the final group of cosplays are Groups. Cosplaying would be fun, but it would be more fun with a group of friends. Here are the cosplay groups I would love to cosplay one day.

Sailor Scouts

It would be my dream to be able to get a group to be able to cosplay the sailor scouts with my closest friends.

Original Suits

Armor Suits

When I was looking at Pinterest and when I clicked on the armor suit for Sailor Moon but I then found another picture but with the group. Whoever drew this and designed the suits I want to thank because they are gorgeous and I would love to bring those to life one day.

My Hero Academia Group

I can’t get enough of this anime so I would love to one day be able to cosplay it, especially with friends. There are a couple of group cosplays for My Hero Academia which include:

Students

I especially would love to get a group of girls together to do just the girls in their uniforms!

Hero Outfits

Girls as Cheerleaders

Because who didn’t love the school festival and the girls in cheerleading uniforms!

Eeveevolutions

Eevee is my favorite Pokemon of all time, when I turn on my Pokemon App I always see if there is an Eevee to catch to add to my army so I would love to be able to cosplay as Eevee and all of the evolutions. I really love how Jessica Nigri’s cosplay group of them.

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers

Like I said in the couples section Mighty Morphin Power Rangers was one of my favorite shows as a kid and is still the best season of Power Rangers in my opinion. I would love to not only cosplay the group as Rangers but in their casual wear as well.

Conclusion

Well that’s my list of characters I want to cosplay! I hope you enjoyed this post! Would you be interested in cosplay? If you are what characters would you want to portray? Comment below those as well as ideas for more blog posts, Halloween or not! I hope you are having a great start to the best month of the year and I will see you in the next post!

Anime I Wish had a Second Season!

Happy Thursday/Friday (not your usual posting day Kat…) and welcome to another blog post! I’ve been sick for the past couple of days and what helps me feel better is watching anime! Last night when I was looking at anime to watch I kept on running into anime that I’ve enjoyed but wished there was a second season. So I thought I would share some of them! Often times anime love to end the season with the intent of having a second season, so they leave you on a cliffhanger or with lots of questions unanswered because they can just answer it in the next season but then because of animator shortage or the anime wasn’t as popular as they thought it would be there isn’t a second season and as a viewer you are left with a lot of unanswered questions or just left sad because you enjoyed the anime and wanted more. There are a lot of wonderful anime out there with great storylines and great characters that deserve a second season, so finding out there isn’t going to be more of that is sad. Like I’ve said in posts before, I know I can get into the manga (which I end up doing) but sometimes the manga is really hard to find, there isn’t even a manga for the anime and it isn’t the same as watching the characters come to life on a screen. Before I get into the whole conversation of the Anime Industry and the shortage of animators (which as an artist/doodler I can draw this out to be its own blog post) let’s jump into the actual blog post! Here is my list of animes that I wish had a second season!

Black Bullet

I’ve mentioned this anime before in a blog post before but the first anime I wish had a second season is Black Bullet. Black Bullet is an anime about a boy named Rentaro Satomi who lives in the world where mankind has fallen and the greatest threat to mankind are parasites named Gastrea. Rentaro fights alongside Enju Aihara against the Gastrea as well as trying to live a “normal” high school life. I love this anime so much because this anime is more than just high school life or just fighting Gastrea. You get to go deep in the characters, how the Gastrea affects their everyday life, especially Enju. Enju is also known as a “Cursed Child” due to the connection to Gastrea and throughout this anime, you see the troubles she has as a “Cursed Child” and how Rentaro helps her through them. I wish Black Bullet had a second season because you get so involved with the characters you want to know more about them as well as the fight for mankind.

No Game No Life

The second anime I wish had a second season is called No Game No Life. No Game No Life is about two siblings named Sora and Shiro who are experts at playing video games but not in the world outside their gaming room. They are so well known in the gaming world they attract a god from an alternate world and are summoned there. In the new world, Sora and Shiro do what they know what to do, and that is play games. With the help of their new friends, Sora and Shiro set out to conquer this new world playing one game at a time. I wish No Game No Life had a second season is because you just want to see what else these characters can accomplish. You get to know these characters and you start seeing their successes and you just want to see them get closer and closer to conquering the world.

The Irregular at Magic High School

The last anime I wish had a second season is called The Irregular at Magic High School. I’ve mentioned this anime before in my “Anime Tag” post as the anime that I thought was better than expected. The anime is about a pair of siblings named Tatsuya and Miyuki Shiba who enroll at First High Magic High School. Tatsuya and Miyuki live in a world where magic exists through modern technology and Magic High School is a place where students can enhance and tone their magic skills. Students who enroll in Magic High School go through a test of their current magic skills are then put in a class (whether first or second course) which then guides where each student go through in their high school career. Though Tatsuya and Miyuki go through different experiences in their first semester in school (Miyuki is put in the first course while Tatsuya is in the second course) things start becoming “irregular” at school during their school festival. I wish The Irregular at Magic School had a second season is because things started becoming interesting and I need to know what happens next! There is a lot of conflict between first and second course because first course students think they are better than second course students and the enrollment of the Shiba siblings mix things up because even though Tatsuya is put in the second course his skills show that he should be in the first course and all Miyuki wants to do is be around Tatsuya because of her borderline sibling crush on him. Plus on top of all of that, we just started to get introduced to the Shiba sibling’s background and the “irregular” things happening around them. I just want to know more!

Conclusion

So those are the anime I wish had a second season! I do really enjoy the anime I mentioned and it makes me sad that such good and well-developed anime aren’t getting another season. But hey, maybe these anime are pulling an Attack on Titan and there is another season in the making, it’s just taking a few years. Wishful thinking aside I will continue to re-watch these series, read the manga, and find more anime to watch and love and hopefully not feel sad when there isn’t a second season. What anime do you wish had a second season? What anime have you been watching recently? I would love to know those and what anime blog post I should do next in the comments below! I hope you all are having a wonderful start to the weekend, day, whatever time it is when you are reading this (it’s late getting this post up.. But hey what’s new ;D) and I will see you in the next post!

XOXO,

If the Sailor Scouts went to Hogwarts?!

Happy Tuesday/Wednesday and welcome to another blog post! I honestly really don’t know how I got the idea for this post but I honestly just wanted to do a fun post after doing two very long (and awesome) posts and my tired brain got to thinking what if the Sailor Scouts went to Hogwarts? And if they did, what house would they be in? So if you are like me and are wondering what the answers these are you came to the right place, so let’s get right into it!

Side note I am only doing the Sailor Scouts (Inner and Outer Sensi… so yes for all you Neptune and Uranus lovers) but that’s it. I would love to do all the characters but that would just take too long, and I need to take a break from these long posts (my fingers hurt!)

Usagi Tsukino aka Sailor Moon

So out of all of them would you believe that Usagi was the hardest out of all of them to put in a house? She’s kind of a blonde so she isn’t a Ravenclaw and she’s not as resourceful and cunning like a Slytherin so that leaves it left with Gryffindor and Hufflepuff. After thinking about it for a while I finally decided on Usagi being a Gryffindor with her bravery and chivalry. So Congrats Sailor Moon, you are house Gryffindor!

Ami Mizuno aka Sailor Mercury

Complete opposite from Usagi I knew right away that Ami would be put in house Ravenclaw. In class Ami would always to be the first to answer questions and spend her breaks reading books about wizard history, potions and spells. Ami would definitely be the smartest witch of her time I would say! Congrats Sailor Mercury, you are house Ravenclaw!

Makoto Kino aka Sailor Jupiter

With her strong ambition and good use of resourcefulness Makoto would be in house Slytherin, and not because she is evil like some classmates may think she is, because she is absolutely not! House Slytherin should be happy to have Makoto’s awesome cooking skills, there’s always a cooking party in Slytherin! Congrats Sailor Jupiter, you are house Slytherin!

Rei Hino aka Sailor Mars

Rei was easy to sort in a house and that is house Gryffindor. She is very brave and out of everything she has a lot of nerve… especially when it comes to bugging Usagi! But her bravery triumphs over everything and that has earned her in house Gryffindor. So congrats Sailor Mars, you are house Gryffindor!

Minako Aino aka Sailor Venus

I know I had a special spot in my heart for Minako when I was watching Sailor Moon because just like me, Minako is house Hufflepuff! **GO TEAM HUFFLEPUFF!!** She’s very loyal, patient and yellow is just her color! (I’ve kind of noticed that with a lot of the scouts…hmmm) Maybe with Minako’s skills, Hufflepuff will finally win a Quidditch World Cup? Maybe? Congrats Sailor Venus, you are house Hufflepuff!

Chibiusa Tsukino aka Sailor Chibi Moon

So just like her mother, when Chibiusa grows up she would of course be in house Gryffindor! At such a young age she has already shown bravery and chivalry in and out of being a sailor scout and that has definitely given her a spot in Gryffindor. So congrats Sailor Mini Moon you are house Gryffindor!

And now time for the Outer Senshi!

Michiru Kaioh aka Sailor Neptune

 

So as much as I wanted to put Michiru in house Hufflepuff (for her loyalty and dedication to a certain other scout) but her intelligence and knowledge has put her in house Ravenclaw! She may not be as smart as Ami but her love for the violin and wit has landed her a spot in Ravenclaw! Congrats Sailor Neptune, you are house Ravenclaw!

Haruka Tenoh aka Sailor Uranus

Who would I be if I didn’t put Haruka in house Slytherin?! His cunning personality and ambition in fights has landed him/her a spot in house Slytherin! Also, can we picture Haruka in a Slytherin uniform?! I would not mind seeing that. So congrats Sailor Uranus, you are house Slytherin!

Setsuna Meiou aka Sailor Pluto

Because of her loyalty to Chibiusa and the Royal Kingdom, Setsuna is joining house Hufflepuff! **GO TEAM HUFFLEPUFF!** I can never get over how loyal she is and is so good towards the Royal family, they know they are safe with Sailor Pluto around! So congrats Sailor Pluto, you are house Hufflepuff!

Hotaru Tomoe aka Sailor Saturn

And last but not least, we have Hotaru! Now she is a hard one to decide but I think that she would be in house Slytherin, and not because she was evil for a little bit. She is very cunning even at such a young age and is a very powerful girl, she would be a very powerful witch. So congrats Sailor Saturn, you are house Slytherin!

BONUS!! Mamoru Chiba aka Tuxedo Mask

So of course I couldn’t do the Sailor Scouts without doing the main man Mamoru! As much I would love love love to put Mamoru with Team Hufflepuff because of his loyalty and patience (and with Usagi, you need patience) I have to put him in Gryffindor for his bravery! That man is so brave, he always puts a brave foot in every battle, because do you know how many times he has saved Usagi without even thinking about it?! So congrats Tuxedo Mask, you are Gryffindor!

Conclusion

So that’s it! What do you guys think? Do you think I sorted them in the right houses? Let me know what you guys think in the comments below! This idea was the result of a tired brain but in all honesty I had so much fun doing it! If you want me to do other Sailor Moon characters or any other animes (I have a few shows in mind) just let me know in the comments below as well as any other ideas for posts! I hope you guys enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed making it and I will see you guys on the next post!

If you aren’t following me on social media you should totally do it for first updates on new blog posts and random posts about me and my life!

It’s Already Over?!// My Thoughts on Attack on Titan Season 2! (SPOILERS!)

Happy Sunday and welcome to another blog post! Last week, sadly the last episode of “Attack on Titan Season 2” aired and I am left emotionless. Even though I knew ahead of time when “Attack on Titan Season 2” was first released that there was only going to be 12 episodes, I couldn’t help getting into each and every single one of them and wanting more. So since it is last the episode of the season, and we don’t know how long it will be until Season 3 (said to be released next year.. we shall see) let’s talk about it! There is a major spoiler alert for this blog post, so if you haven’t seen “Attack on Titan Season 2” and are planning on watching it, this blog post is not the post for you! But if you are caught up on Season 2, or you don’t care about it and would like to know my opinions, keep on reading! That being said I have lots to say so let’s just get right into it!

Opening Theme

First of course since we all know how I love a good opening theme song, let’s talk about the Season 2 opening animation and song. If you read my blog post “My Favorite Anime Openings” you already know that the opening animation for “Attack on Titan Season 1” is my top favorite. It gives me chill right at the beginning of the song and gets me pumped for the episode. I am happy to say that the opening lives up to the first one and is just as great. The song is just as intense (which goes great with how intense the show is) as the first opening and even though it doesn’t give you chills right away like the first opening does, it definitely gives you chills during it.
And that ending animation where everything just goes crazy…. If you aren’t pumped up for the episode after just watching the opening animation, I don’t know what will get you pumped up. I also love how they keep the same artist for the opening song as well. All around I have no complaints for the opening credits and I am pleased with how it turned out. I know that every time I listen to it just like the first opening, no how many times I watch it in a row, I will always get goose bumps!

If you want to watch the opening sequence you can click here to watch it:

The Story

Now that we’re pumped to watch the show from the awesome opening credits, let’s talk about the story. Even though there were only 12 episodes it doesn’t feel like it because each and every single episode is jam packed! Even that one episode where all that was happening was talking (if you’ve seen the season, you know what episode I’m talking about) was jam packed with story with the way the characters were talking to each other.
The season premiere was no exception. Right from the start they drop the bomb that Titans are inside of the walls and then introduces us to the Beast Titan, a Titan unlike any other one we’ve seen before (he looks like a hairy oversized monkey with abs…kinda).

 

After that without any warning the season dropped more and more things on us from left to right. There is an attack (which seemed to be controlled by the Beast Titan…Titans can control other Titans what?!) and some of Eren’s comrades are trapped in a tower unarmed surrounded by titans.

Then another bomb is dropped when we find out that not only is Ymir a Titan, but then suddenly Reiner tells Eren that he is the Armored Titan and that Bertholdt is the Colossal Titan. Not only that, but Reiner and Eren kidnap Eren and the injured Ymir and run away from the wall, headed to their “hometown”! And that’s only half way through the season! Thankfully those were the only massive bombs on us (my heart would have probably exploded if they dropped another one on us) and the rest of the season was the escape plan being pursued to save Eren and Ymir (let’s be honest.. Mostly just Eren).

I honestly forgot how intense the show was until finishing the season premiere. But now that I have seen the twelfth episode, I am craving more. I love the story because not only does it keep me at the edge of my seat and leaves me wanting more, but I get to see more a background of the characters. Season 1 was mostly revolved around Eren, Mikasa and Armin, but in this season we get to see more of the other comrades’ stories.

Moments of Confusion

In this season, we may have learned a lot about Titans, but we are also left questioning about a few things, especially when it came to Reiner’s and Bertholdt’s plan for Eren. I know that’s the point of why the people behind “Attack on Titan” did it, to get viewers wondering and wanting more, but at times when Reiner and Bertholdt was talking to each other while trying to escape with Eren and Ymir (before she had her flashback and changed their plans), the things they were saying just seemed a bit confusing to me. They of course know what they have in store for Eren but as an audience member looking into the story we are left confused (unless you’ve read the manga). All we know is that Eren has some kind of power (that is he not aware of) that the Titans know about and want. So Reiner’s and Bertholdt’s mission is handing over Eren to a higher titan… but that’s what I’m guessing.

They also were talking about getting Christa and Annie to their hometown as well, Annie being a comrade of Reiner and Bertholdt and Christa being an important member of the church (I will get into that more soon). It seems though that Reiner makes it seem that capturing and taking Christa is just as important of getting Eren to the “hometown”, and it is so important for Ymir to see Christa again that she’s willing to jeopardize their plan of escaping to go back and capture her right then. It even got to the point where they were saying how they wanted to save Christa from the dangers inside the wall… which confuses me as well to a point but it will probably be answered when I know more about the Titan/human relationship.

The show is already is high paced and intense, so when stuff like this happens and words are being said that confuses me and before I can stop and think “What did they say?” or “What’s going on?” they already moved on to something else, or something big happens you just have no idea what to think anymore.

I watched season 2 on Crunchyroll and reading the comments most people are saying things like “Read the manga.” or “It’s funny how people who haven’t read the manga say they aren’t giving too much information and people who have read the manga say they’re giving too much information. (about the human/titan relationship)” and while yes I could read the manga, and yes I would love to read the manga one day (I may actually read it to fill the emptiness inside me now that Season 2 is over) that moment of watching a new episode not knowing what is going to happen excites me, especially with how intense and fast this show goes. When I do decide to read the manga, I am excited to learn a lot of things character and story wise as well as get some answers to the Titan/human relationship. But until then if I have questions, I already plan on rewatching the season and series and multiple times. Everytime I watch it, I hope to catch more and more bits of information I didn’t before. And if I’m still confused, I can always research it as well!

Historia the Bad-Ass!

So like I said in the last point, one of the people Reiner and Bertholdt needed to capture was Christa because of her importance to the church (plus we all know Reiner has a huge crush on her too). I was a little curious on why Christa was important to the plan and after seeing Ymir’s background it sparked my curiosity more so I did some research and found out some spoilers and background about her that makes it all (well not all, there’s still so much that confuses me) make sense.

During the first couple of episodes of season 2, the Survey Corps is revealed that Christa may know about the walls having Titans inside them because of her family background and that Christa really isn’t the girl Eren and the gang got to know during the Training Corps. In reality she is actually Historia Reiss, a girl who has been hiding her and her family’s true identity until she joined the Survey Corps and got to know Ymir.

The thing that makes Historia such a bad-ass in my opinion is the growth in this season. In Season 1, Christa was scared and was living a life treating people a certain way to make it seem like she was a good person. But in Season 2 with the help of Ymir and certain events, Christa has accepted her true identity and who she is as a person. She has found the courage to make her first Titan kill ever and to live for herself. To become what her true name means, to become in her own way a GODDESS. And that in my opinion makes her pretty bad-ass (and someone I want to cosplay one day). I can’t wait to see what else Historia can do in seasons to come.

Lack of Levi

So speaking of bad-ass people, was anyone else sad with the lack of Levi in this season?! I mean Levi was still in the season and still played an important role, but not as much as he was in the first season. I know he was on the sidelines because of an injury and in the first couple of episodes he plays a big role in getting Minister Nick to fess up about important information but other than that, he wasn’t in it till the very end. And speaking of the very end, can I say I got emotional with Levi’s reaction to the maybe truth about Titans and Erwin’s reaction?! Oh man. Plus doing a little research about Levi I found that Attack on Titan did a OVA about Levi’s background?! It’s called “Attack on Titan OVA No Regrets”!!

The Season Finale

So of course since we are talking about Season 2, I have to talk about the finale because OH MY GOODNESS THAT SEASON FINALE!! (if you didn’t have enough spoilers already… this part is just packed with them…you have been warned).

The episode begins with Eren and Mikasa (somehow he managed to get away from Reiner and Bertholdt) and is faced in front of the smiling Titan that killed Eren’s mother years ago. Mikasa tries to attack the Titan but due to injuries she can’t and Eren is in no shape to fight (look at those stubby fingers!) so Hannes bravely goes for the attack. He fought well but soon enough the smiling Titan captured him and started to move him closer to it’s mouth. Seeing his dear friend in danger caused Eren to want to transform to his Titan form, even though his body wasn’t ready for it. But alas no matter how many times Eren took a bite in his stubby hands, he couldn’t transform and like so many years ago, Eren helplessly watched a loved one get eaten by the same smiling Titan.

In rage Eren cries and laughs to the messed up world (literally all his comrades and friends are fighting against Titans) around him yelling how nothing has changed and that in all the years of training and becoming better, he still isn’t strong enough to make an impact on anything. Mikasa then tells him that Eren is wrong and that he has always been there by Mikasa’s side. Time is at a stop as Mikasa tells Eren how much of an impact he has made on her and almost kisses him but is stopped when Eren moves and stands up facing the Titan. He tells Mikasa that he will always and forever be there to wrap the red scarf around her neck and then with a punch, Eren somehow controls the surrounding Titans to attack and eat the smiling Titan?! The Survey Corps take this opportunity to retreat and escape. While fleeing, Ymir (still in Titan form) sees a future for Historia in behind the walls now that she sees what Eren is truly capable of even though Eren is nowhere near aware of his new power. Then we hear the word “Coordinate” for the first time from Reiner who seems very unhappy with the fact that Eren has this power and then suddenly through Eren’s rage he directs (without him unaware of it of course) the Titans to attack Reiner as they make their escape. Ymir then decides that she is turning herself into Reiner and Bertholdt parting from Historia (I wonder what her true motives are…). The Survey Corps make their escape with no more casualties… and that was just the first half of the episode!

A short time has passed and Commander Hange and Conny come in with some disturbing news… that in theory (they don’t have full proof) the true identities of Titans are actually humans. This news leaves Commander Levi and Commander Pyxis shocked but Commander Erwin is smiling at the fact that he has taken a step in learning more about the origins of Titans which makes Levi almost sick and more disturbed (aka what I said before about Levi in the last section). Meanwhile Armin tells Eren about his theory on why he thinks the Titans attacked the smiling Titan and then Reiner without harming any humans and though it may be a burden and hard for Eren, he steps up to the position to help pay for all the lives that were taken for his sake. The episode ends with the appearance of the Beast Titan and a new character we haven’t seen before and then left there to wonder what is going to be in store next for Eren and the gang. All in all I was on the edge of my seat the whole episode.

To say what I feel like about this finale in one emotion is nearly impossible because I felt so many emotions after watching it, I still feel them even know a week later after watching it.

What Next?

So there you go, my long review and thoughts of season 2! All together after everything I just said, I can honestly say that other than just a few minor things (mostly the lack of Levi) this season is just as wonderful as Season 1 plus more. In this season not only did we get to learn more about the Titan/human relationship but we really got to know more about the characters. Like I said before, the first season we really got to know Eren and his friends. But for the other characters, we only got a glance and we didn’t get to know about who they are and why they joined the Training Corps. So seeing the character development in this new season really makes the other characters more likable and relatable.

Each week it was exciting to sit down and get sucked into each episode. Then after finishing each episode, it gave me a sense of excitement for the next episode because I spent the week thinking over the episode and wondering what’s going to happen next. So in that aspect I am really going to miss this anime until the next season (which will hopefully won’t be too long of a wait) because it gave me something to look forwards to each week.

Now that it is over, I do feel sad and empty but at the same time I have this fire inside of me to know more, especially with some of the confusion I had before. And just because there isn’t a new episode to watch every week, doesn’t mean there aren’t other things I can preoccupy myself with in the Attack on Titan world. There is always the manga to read to help clear up some confusion. After reading that if I am somehow still confused, I can always look it up thanks to the wonderful thing we have called the internet! Also, not only is there that background story on Levi (which we all know I am excited to watch) but I just found out that there is an “Attack on Titan: Junior High” series I didn’t know about! I was watching some clips and I was laughing so hard because just seeing the characters in a not so intense atmosphere and as little chibi characters is both strange and adorable all in one! Plus on top of that, I do plan on rewatching the season and binge watching the whole series again multiple times, so I think I will be ok!

Conclusion

I really hope (if you stuck for this far) you enjoyed this post! I really love this anime, so of course when I went to sit down and talk about it, I had a lot to talk about so I do apologize for how long it took for me to get this post out. What did you think of “Attack on Titan Season 2”? Were there any points I missed talking about or did you just miss Levi as much as I did in this season? Have you watched either “Attack on Titan: Junior High” or “Attack on Titan OVA No Regrets”? Knowing me, after watching them I will probably do a review on those on here so that’s something to look forwards to as well! If you have any ideas for blog posts in the Attack on Titan world, anime or just anything in general as always let me know in the comments below! I’ve also noticed that on here there isn’t a way to update you guys on announcements or when a blog post is going to be late, so I am here to let you know that if you want to get announcements or just wanna know the weird stuff I do in my life, I have social media! If you want to follow me, I have an Instagram account @doodles.by.kat and I also have a Facebook page! Just type @doodles.by.kat or @katarinastarkinfo! Other than all of that, I hope you all have a great week and I will see you guys hopefully on Tuesday or Wednesday!

My Favorite Anime Ending Credits!

Happy Sunday and welcome to finally another blog post! These past couple of weeks have been crazy with my weird work schedule and then I also got sick… but now I feel so much better and ready to get back in the normal groove of things! And what better way to get back into it than do an anime blog post! A little while back I did “My Favorite Anime Openings” and today it is time to show you my favorite anime endings! You know that feeling when you just went through an intense episode and it ends and goes to the credit screen and just all the intensity disappears with the beautiful song and animation that goes with it. These are the anime endings that either gave me that feeling or I loved the song so much that I had to look up the whole song and listen to it on the regular… or even both! With these types of posts, I usually do a countdown but all of these anime ending credits deserve the number one spot so I couldn’t put them in a specific order. With that being said let’s get right into it!

Bleach Ending 2 “Thank You!” by Home Made Kazoku

The first ending is from Bleach. As you know, I used to really love Bleach and this was from one of my favorite seasons. Rukia is taken by the Soul Society and Ichigo and his friends are set off to rescue her. So in the ending credits I feel the song “Thank You!” fits perfectly because it is Rukia’s way of thanking Ichigo for coming to her rescue and being a true friend even though she has accepted her fate and punishment for her crimes. This brings me so many of the nostalgic feels when I hear this because it reminds me of my early anime days. I couldn’t find a video of the actual anime ending credits but here is the song so you can hear the song.

Hunter X Hunter Ending 5

This year I finally got around to watching Hunter X Hunter. If you read my blog post “Let’s Get Chatty// Good Endings and New Beginnings”, you heard some of my thoughts and feelings about the show, but this post isn’t talking about that. Before I got to season 5 I was happy with each of the seasons. The show had little to no filler episodes so each episode was jam packed with a lot of story and character build which I loved. So of course I was excited to get drawn into a new season. But after seeing the first couple of episodes I was drawn away from it because it took a turn on a more creepy level and I wasn’t really ok with one big ant eating humans. I was about to give up on the series all together. Luckily I was encouraged to watch more and I thought since I came this far, I shouldn’t give up on it now. I am so glad I continued to watch it because this season became one of my favorite seasons in the whole show. And to bring it all together there is a wonderful anime ending credits that bring all of the season together. And the song is great as well! I don’t know what it’s called because it is in a different language but I listened to the full version and it is wonderful.

Death Parade Ending “Last Theatre”

The anime that I am currently watching is Death Parade. I was honestly first drawn in because I fell in love with the anime opening credits but really wanted to know who these characters were and what they were up to. I also learned early on that this anime is very depressing (deals with lots of death) so I had to pump myself up to watch this anime. Now that I have started watching, yes it is very sad and very intense, but it is still so good! I’m over halfway through the anime and it’s starting to get into the real intense stuff. Anywho, I was delightedly surprised when the ending credits started to how much I loved it. The intensity in this song matches perfectly to the anime and the main ending animation really does fit the anime itself. Once again, I had to look up the full song because it is so beautiful. If you haven’t seen Death Parade and are wanting a very intense anime (it has already made me cry once) you should watch it, it is so good! I can’t wait to see how the ending is.. So please no spoilers! 🙂

Black Bullet Ending “Tokohana” by Nagi Yanagi

The last anime ending is from the anime Black Bullet. Right at the get go when the ending credits start, I get goosebumps and is immediately drawn into the song and animation. Black Bullet is one of my favorite newer animes and I wish it had a second season, because the ending of the series made me question so much. I loved the story and the character development throughout the series (even though I did question one character in the end…). I love how the credit scene is through the perspective of Enju and I feel that you get a sense of how she feels deep inside with all of her responsibilities and troubles she has to endure. I also have to give credit to the singer Nagi Yanagi, she has an incredible song and you can feel her soul through her lyrics. I love in songs how even though I don’t understand what they are saying because of a language barrier but I can tell what it is about or what the message they are getting through with how the singer performs it. You can feel the way she is feeling as a listener.
