Attack on Titan

OMG, I can't believe Shingeki no Kyoijin (Attack on Titan) is releasing its anime. I thought it was an underrated manga and this news makes me really happy. Finally, this series will gain exposure. With its magnificent artwork and stunning plot, I'm sure it will attract many new readers/viewers. I'm incredibly happy you guys have no idea. 

Now, you guys must check out the trailer. It is so well done and the music rocks! The atmosphere and tension you feel in the trailer is exactly what you must feel when reading this series. Utter despair and slowly regaining hope. I'm telling you, this manga/anime is fantastic. Coming from a picky shounen manga reader like me, my words gotta count for something. When I said a manga is good, it's very likely to be really good. 

This story is about human civilization being attacked by mysterious giants in the future. These giants cannibalize humans and drove humanity to seek refuge in a small city where they built tall walls of defense. There, humans lived in fear of invasion. Lacking technology we have today, their only way of defending themselves are just using limited fuel tanks to zoom around and blades to cut. One day, a super mega huge giant the height of the wall appeared and destroyed the precious wall that separated humans and those vicious giants. Despair, the humans are driven further into the city's inner walls. But slowly, these walls are being broken down and humanity has nowhere else to hide anymore. It was then, Eren has something unexpected to offer. He was able to become ... Watch the anime. LOL.

Misoya Sushi Review

Misoya is probably one of the most underrated Asian restaurants in Montreal. The food is extreeemely delicious. The outside doesn't look very attractive because of the part of a bigger store next door but you should never judge the book by its cover. My family went in there and booooyyyy, it's quite homey. It's tiny and cute. The waitress was very friendly. There was no other customer beside us so they dedicate all their love in their food. Result: very yummy. 
They serve both Korean and Japanese dishes which are quite authenticated. We had bimbimbap, sushi and some udon tempura shrimp noodle soup (<---- definitely delicious. Must try it)

 Delicious tea. It has a very 'beautiful' taste to it. I can't quite explain. It's just ... beautiful. The taste. I know it sounds weird but it was like a soft layer of creamy feel when you drink it. You have to try it yourself. 
I know I say this many times already but the food is allll amazing. I have never been to a restaurant where I just want to eat every single thing and was sad that my stomach is tiny. The miso is very smooth. The tofu is carefully diced and the ingredients are well cut. 

Ok enough of vintage photos. I didn't bring my camera so I used my dad's phone and I was like "oooOOhhhh it has cool features so we had fun trying those out. So the following pictures are not up to my usual quality. I like natural and pretty. Hohoho... I have an unhealthy love towards my camera. Kidding.  

The sushi are very fresh and delicious. Having worked at a sushi franchise as cashier, I have my fair share of knowledge when it comes to quality and freshness. (Tips for freshness: to know if the sushi is good, look at the state of the avocados. If the avocados are beautifully green with no brown area, it's very fresh.) 

The tempura shrimp is very crunchy and everything was just pure delicious. The sushi rolls are also well rolled (not loose. The ingredients are falling apart.) Overall sushi: A. I will definitely go back again. 
 I love how they decorated the wasabi. They made it looks like blooming flowers. Quite cute. 

 The green salad was okay. I am more fond of their wakame salad (below). The sauce they dipped the wakame in was sweet and yummy. Oh geez, I am getting hungry just by looking at all these pictures as I am typing right now (and I just ate!)

Don't let this soaky appearance disappoint you. It's soooo good. The tempura is so crunchy. The udon noodles are smooth like silk. I love it. Even though it's my little brother's meal, I kept stealing some when he wasn't looking. That's how good it is! I'm not even kidding. Next time when I go back, I am bringing in a crowd so that everyone can order something different and we can all try out their other meals. I bet they are alllll delicious. If you are in Montreal and have a love for Asian food, go to Misoya. 
You won't regret it.

Zetsuen No Tempest Review

Zetsuen no Tempest is a new anime that I fell in love with. The art is magnificent. I love the solemn atmosphere and intriguing characters. The main protagonists are by no mean gentleman. As you can see from this gif (above) and screenshot (below), Mahiro (blond) kicked a woman in the face. That gotta hurts. 

Now, allow me to review Zetsuen no Tempest and introduce you to an anime you might not have considered before. 
On his very first real appearance in the anime, this is how it happens... Mahiro kicked Evangeline in the face. He had teleported from somewhere else to save Yoshino from being attacked by Eva. The story then gets interesting when Eva asked Mahiro if he had met a mage... so at first we are like "huuuh? There's magic in this anime?" LOLOLOL

Mahiro (blond): Lone-wolf, cold, fighter, handsome and rich bad boy.
Yoshino: Don't be fooled by his innocent charm. He can calmly aim a gun at you (happened in the anime)

The story begins with Mahiro being missing for 3 months after the death of his sister Aika (who is secretly Yoshino's girlfriend). Don't worry, I am not spoiling. You will know these fact straight out of episode 1. So Mahiro, angered by the murder of his sister, came across a wooden voodoo doll on the beach. That voodoo doll is sent by a stranded witch (3rd protagonist) who wished to stop a disaster. The two characters then formed a contract. Mahiro would try to stop the disaster (quite an interesting story line) which involved this disease that turns people into iron. On the other hand, the witch will help Mahiro find the murderer of his sister Aika. 

Along the way, Mahiro met up with Yoshino (his 'con-artist' best friend) who was being attacked by Eva the woman with the gun above) while Yoshino was paying his respect to Aika's tombstone. 

Cute Yoshino and Mahiro moment. Yoshino is like a mom taking care of her naughty son... hehe... naughty... *wink* maybe wife... seriously, what's with those hairpins. I can't help getting distracted the whole anime. I kept going... 'ah I love his hair... and where can I buy those hairpins?!'

A sad Yoshino quoting Hamlet.
Forty thousand brothers could not, with all their quantity of love, make up my sum.
Until now I have no idea what he means. He was probably mourning the death of Aika...
This is the disaster he are supposed to stop. This is a fruit that an evil sorcerer clan is trying to plant around the world. This symptom of the fruit causes people (without magic protection) to turn into stone. No only must the boys stop the disaster, they also must fight the evil sorcerers. That's when the anime is awesssoooome. The fight scenes are really beautiful to watch with lots of pretty blue lights (as they teleport here and there). Seriously, you have to trust me that the fight is damn awesome.

Now for the awkward moments in the anime. READY?
I can tell you in advance that the anime has quite a few fanservices. I swear.  So time to feel awkward!

Mahiro wiping a boo boo. It's their first conversation after 3 months of separation. When Mahiro did that, I was like... do best friends do that? I certainly don't do that with my female friends! Let alone 2 young men! Trololol! AWKWARD! NEXT!
NAKED MAHIRO! Well... *Cough* that was unexpected. Anyhow this happens in episode 4, after everyone turned into metal, Mahiro and Yoshino broke into someone's house to rest. It's not like the owners will get angry since they are... metallized. 

Seriously, this is fanservice at its best (for young women). The camera went from knees up to head. I was like (O.o)'''
For yaoi fangirls, this is the moment.
Too bad Mahiro rejects Yoshino. Kidding, Yoshino had randomly barged in bathroom and saw Mahiro naked. The reason Yoshino was surprised was that he had just looked away from Mahiro for a second and when he turned around.... well he got flashed or mooned... whatever you call it.

Sulking adorably for not able to join Mahiro in bath... Mahiro went to cook instead. Such a good wifey! I am sooo teasing Yoshino for being a wife until the day he stops wearing those hairpins! 
My Feels for these boys!

One Piece Chapter 686 Review

Chapter 686 is mainly focuses on Zoro's fight with Monet. Finally, you get to see Zoro fights. Everyone already had their turn showing off in Punk Hazard so now it's Zoro's chance. However, as I had predicted, Monet is not Zoro's opponent. Because Zoro is secretly a gentleman who wouldn't hurt a girl. He might be pretty rough with them but he doesn't go as far as wound them. Sanji on the other hand can just exchange some blows but never had the guts to finish the work (his fight with Kalifa CP9 Water 7 arc)
Zoro plans to fight Monet on his own while Nami, Robin and Chopper can go after Mocha and the other children.
Is Monet holding some wooden spears as weapons? Again Zoro looks damn cool in here.

I'm surprised. Monet doesn't have her wings and other harpy features. What does that mean? Does it mean that Monet asked Trafalgar Law to give her those birdie wings? I don't understand. Now that I think about it. Monet is Doflamingo's subordinate. Of course she wouldn't be on the island when Ceasar activated the poisonous gas years ago that ruined many test subjects. So the only thought left is that Monet either somehow had her limbs gone or she purposely asked Law for the implants.

When Monet showed that angry look, I had a feeling she would be fighting Nami. Girls always fight girls in One Piece. Guess I was slightly wrong since Nami wasn't the right opponent. Such a pity, I would love to see them fight. Nami and her climate staff and Monet's snow blast. Now that would be interesting. 

Monet scared the shit out of me when she transformed. I shared the same looks of horror as Chopper. What happened to pretty girl Monet? Women...
Proof that Zoro is secretly a gentleman. Sure he can take the girls on but we know he has a soft spot of the ladies. Sanji would be proud of him. LOL.

I laughed. Oh god. Zoro's surprised look when Sanji charged in, leading the marine. You can't blame him for helping their long-term enemies. 

Hahaha, they are so childish. It's so cute. 

Mother of ... Monet officially scared me nuts. She took a chunk out of the marine! WTF? One of the direct gory details ever in One Piece. Sure you have Law doing his Shambles attack and body parts go flying around but it's not as weird as this scene. Monet just went on full-mode cannibalism! That is so wrong.

 There. The girls-fight we have been waiting for. Tashigi versus Monet. They will be the one sorting out the differences. Zoro can now go fight god knows who. I bet Baby 5 will be dealt with by Nami and/or Robin. Since they are the only girls left to fight Baby 5. So let's see, Luffy will fight Ceasar solo. Smoker fights Vergo. So who are left are Sanji (already battled Vergo), Zoro (fought Monet), Chopper, Brook, Franky and Usopp. So who do you think Doflamingo's other subordinate Buffalo will fight against?
