Now I need something big and hard, or I just can’t endure it. Megumin- Explosion Magic
Welcome to the world of Konosuba, where the traditional Isekai standards are thrown out the window and laughed upon for its normality. Humour, wild cards and sexy girls definitely make this anime ONE OF THE BEST that I’ve ever seen. The perfect combination of music, plot (and did I say hot girls?) all blended into one spectacular anime. Kinda like a delicious fruit smoothie on a hot summers day. SATISFYING.
Let’s start off with your average Isekai death ritual. We’ve got our NEET Kazuma who was walking back from his venture to the game store. With his R18+ game in hand, he saw his attractive boner inducing classmate about to get hit by a car. Being the stereotypical good guy at the wrong time, he decides to jump in and take the blow for her. In the end, the girl lived, the car was fine andddddd he died of an emotional shock. Even his parents laughed at the cause of death lol
In the afterlife, he meets this beautiful goddess named Aqua, who too laughed at his cause of death. Kazuma was given two very interest choices for his good deed. To be reincarnated into the human world once again, or to be reincarnated into an alternate world. He was permitted one wish which was to bring anything with him. A powerful sword, crazy psychic powers, incredible wealth but with a comedic turn of events due to Kazuma being butthurt, he pointed to the goddess and chose her instead.
Off they go into a fantasy world. You would think that Kazuma is incredibly lucky to have such a hot goddess helping him out but you would be wrong. This goddess is not only physically THICC but mentally THICC in the head as well lol. With literally 0 intelligence points, she uses her level up points on the only useful skill known to man. That’s right people, a skill that allows her to shoot up a minuscule stream of water from her fan to show off as a party trick. NATURE’S BEAUTY!
Kazuma gains a couple more girls into his harem. The 3rd member goes by the name of Megumin. The Arch Wizard who’s only one love and true desire is to blow shit up with explosion magic. However, after casting one, she becomes completely useless to the point where her teammates literally have to carry her lol. The 4th member is called Darkness.From the name who could probably deduce that she is a masochist who finds it pleasurable to get beaten up physically and mentally. Well tbh no one was expecting that but it sure as hell funny lol
They go many adventures together and by facing various challenges their friendship foster into something truly “unique”. Kazuma is the brains of the herd as you can probably see the others are pretty useless by themselves lol. Their ultimate goal is to defeat the Devil King but to be honest, they didn’t really get anywhere in the first season because due to a series of unfortunate events caused by Aqua. Credits to Aqua in the second season where she became a little more useful in the fights lol.
If you’re wanting something lighthearted for the shits and gigs then this anime will be able to satisfy your 2am munchies. Do not try to search for any seriousness in the anime because everything they do or say is pretty much a joke. I thoroughly enjoyed the comedic plot as well as the jokes being thrown around. You’ll fall in love with the main characters as they are all “unique” in some way or another. Hopefully, they will announce a season 3 because this anime deserves more episodes 🙂
We all die someday, but as long as someone keeps a person’s wishes alive, they won’t really die.
Welcome to the world of Nanatsu No Taizai or The Seven Deadly Sins, which is a tale about the medieval times. First, we’ll do a bit of introduction for the newbies so that you guys can catch up. Not only was this anime based on medieval times, the writers decided to throw in demons, angels and supernatural abilities in there too. Holy shit, this anime will keep you at the edge of your seats throughout the season. Both of them! lol
The main protagonist Meliodas, the sin of Wrath is not your typical boy. He’s actually a 3000-year-old Demon and is the son of Satan. That escalated quickly lol. He’s not as cute as he seems. He’s actually the captain of the Seven Deadly sins. And is also the biggest pervert in the anime lol. As you can see below, he enjoys grabbing big boobs and having a sneak peek at panties as a hobby.
For those of you know don’t know what the 7 sins are they compose of the following. Greed, Envy, Sloth, Wrath, Lust, Gluttony and Pride. Each member representing each sin corresponding to their characteristics and individual desires seen in the anime. Not sure why Meliodas wasn’t Lust but who am I to complain lol.
The story is set in a country called Liones, Britania. The seven deadly sins were considered the strongest of the holy knights. Ten years ago, there was a rumour that the seven deadly sins were planning to overthrow the kingdom. This was bullshit btw, they were framed. They had to disband the crew tried to keep a low profile. But thanks to Elizabeth who sets out to find the Seven Deadly Sins, they are now once again reunited.
Elizabeth Liones, is the 4th Princess of the Liones Kingdom. She is a princess who has a benevolent and kind nature. Think of Hinata. Yeah, Waifu material lol. She is the 107th reincarnation of the super hottie Supreme Deity daughter Goddess Elizabeth and also the reincarnation of Liz who was Meilodas’s past lover.
And who can forget Hawk! The captain of the leftover knights! The strongest character in the anime (self-proclaimed). Hawk is a talking pig with the moral conscience to keep Meliodas in character. Oh and the Boar Hat is actually built on top of Hawk’s mum who is hugeeeee! Hawk can be uptight most of the time but I find him reliable, trustworthy and full of courage. His heart is definitely in the right place ❤
Now with all the introductions out of the way, let’s get into the movie. Picking up from season 2, the fight with the 10 commandments was over but shit was still over the place so I don’t really know where this movie fits into the timeline but oh well. The movie starts off with each member gathering ingredients. It was revealed that the King of Liones’s birthday was coming up and they were going to have a BIG celebration.
Meliodas heard a rumour from somewhere that the meat of a sky fish is extremely delicious and he wanted to get some for his old friend the king. While the others have already finished their share of hunting-gathering, Meliodas has been slacking off as usual lol. He instead tries to cook an apple pie with Ban as the head chef and everything was looking as good as usual. However, nobody wanted to have a taste lol. The brave Escanor took up the challenge and boooooom, rainbow vomit everywhere!
Meliodas and Hawk decide to go wash off the skittle coloured vomit in a nearby pond. Melios takes a look and he sees something very unusual. It was a herd of Sky Fish!!! Meliosdas and Hawk decide to jump in and little did they know it was actually a portal to sky island! On the other hand, a Melioodas look-alike also popped out from the pond at the same time! His name is Solaad and he is a celestial with wings. They are the descendants of the goddess clan!
The winged people were there to greet the Meliodas and Hawk. They were trying to capture Solaad for running away from his soldier duties. So they mistakenly took Meliodas instead due to their facial similarities and well pretty everything about them was similar tbh. However, Hawk becomes an instant hero because he looks exactly like the great warrior Oshiro and pretty much gets worshipped. The Celestials are the protectors of a giant egg that has many demons sealed inside it from 3000 years ago.
And out of nowhere a demon group called the Six Knights of Black appeared and attacked Solaad and the Seven Deadly Sins at Liones. Their goal is to ultimately crack the big egg and unleash the ultimate evil from the inside. Solaad eventually convinces the Seven Deadly Sins to help out at the sky temple. However because Galla destroyed the pond portal, the crew had to take the long way there. That’s right team, Mama Hawk takes flight!
As the big egg starts to crack, the rest of the Six Knights of Black are released. Their names aren’t important but they were all strong as hell. The leader of the group Bellion holds a 3000-year-old grudge against Meliodas. He has once declined entry into the 10 Commandments because at the time he was too weak. So he’s pretty much butthurt and takes his anger out on Meliodas. Meliodas was having quite a hard time fending off all of the Six Knights and he was pushed to the limits.
Reinforcements finally arrived after Meliodas got stabbed by the sacred Wing Sword which is a specialized anti-demon sword. Don’t worry guys our captain won’t die that easily. They manage to pull it out and the fight continues. The Seven Deadly Sins took out all of the Knights and there was just one left, their leader Bellion. He used his teammates’ souls to break the seal on the giant egg and booooom comes out the Indura of Retribution. What will happen? Go watch it! 🙂
Definitely, recommend this anime/movie to all you guys who are into supernatural powers and fan service. There is actually a good easy to follow plot to this movie so don’t get discouraged if you haven’t seen season 1 or 2. The visuals are stunning and the mystery will keep you wondering even after the movie has finished 🙂
It is not a sin to fight for the right cause. There are those who words alone will not reach.
AAAHHHHHHHHH, SUPER SAIYANNNNNNNNN! I’m sure all the Dragon Ball fans have tried to go Super Saiyan before. Nope? No one? So it was just me……… Welcome to the world of Dragon Ball Super! If you’re wondering where this one fits in, it sits right between Dragonball Z and Dragonball GT. Someone decided it would be cool to fill in the missing gap and from the bottom of our hearts, we cannot thank you enough.
Debatably the most popular character in the anime universe is Goku! Ever since the start of Dragonball in 1986, Goku was from the Saiyan race but was raised on earth. He was a bit of a rebel to his grandfather Gohan who raised him. One night on a full moon, Goku transformed into a giant ape that destroyed everything in its path. What a naughty boy lol
Goku has come a long way. He had a change of heart and became a kind and loving person. Despite that, it doesn’t subdue his natural instincts and love for fighting. He trained under his first sensei Master Roshi the perverted turtle hermit. Master Roshi was always looking for ways to hit on Bulma, this OG pervert that sets the bar for every other anime is truly legendary. Goku later goes on to compete in the world martial arts tournament. I can’t remember if he “officially” won any of them though. Either something interrupted or some bullshit happened lol.
Although the plot is pretty much the same, the hype for Dragon Ball Super is as high as ever! There’s just something about Goku never giving up and growing stronger during each battle. That or everyone just wants to see him blasting his Kamehameha wave at evil villains and knocking them out of this world. Regardless, the action, adventure and comedy in the series will make sure you’re in for a ride!
In Dragon Ball Super, The God of Destruction Berus sets out to destroy the earth out of sheer boredom. He was searching for someone strong to fight and ends up on earth. In desperation to fight the god of destruction, the crew finds all means to get stronger. And what better way to do this??? SUMMON SHENRON FOR THE 83rd TIME!!!!! I’m sure that dragon is getting sick of everyone’s shit lol.
Shenron being the useless dragon that he is, couldn’t grant Goku’s his wish to be transformed into a Super Saiyan God. But after seeing Berus in the crowd, he became scared shitless and spills all the beans. The ritual to transform a Saiyan into a Saiyan God required 5 pure Saiyan souls. Then he disappeared into the Dragon Balls and scattered across earth once again.
So what did they do? They stood in a circle and transferred their powers to Goku. It looked pretty much like a rain dance to me. It took about 3 episodes for him to transform like it usually does lol. His crimson red aura was hella fire and it looks epic! He even gave Beerus a run for his money as well!
Due to sibling rivalry, Beerus and Champa decided to have a fighting tournament. They would pick their representatives and send them out to fight each other. The winning prize wall Dragon Balls. BUT WAIT! THIS TIME THEY ARE THE SUPER DRAGON BALLS! EACH BALL IS THE SIZE OF A PLANET! OMGERDDDDDD. Look at them balls lol
Sadly the tournament was interrupted by none other than the supreme being, the most OP character in the whole universe, Zeno Samaaaaaaa. That’s right move aside the king is here you lowly peasants. Naturally, Goku made friends with Zen chan and suggested that they have a big battle against all the 8 universes. Little did he know it would become a sudden knockout when all 10 representatives from a universe are eliminated, their universe will disapear……..shit’s getting real lol
Now fast forward a few episodes, the whole universe finds themselves in a knockout battle royal. Here is the line up for Universe 7 team up top. Sorry Yamcha, you didn’t make the cut LMAO. You all are probably wondering why Frieza is in here. Well to put it simply……. it was either him or Yamcha……. yeah easy pick lol.
Let me just talk about possibly the best anime scene in the whole history anime before we get to the greatest fight of all time. Holy shit this scene caught everybody off guard and I’m sure you know which of I’m talking about. The fight between Kefla and Ultra instincts Goku. NEVER in the history of Dragonball, Dragonball Z or Dragonball GT have we ever seen something like this. Goku charging his Kamehameha jumped onto someone else’s ki blast and delivers the finishing blow. I mean Wow, OH MY GOD. Give the animators for this scene a Nobel prize for anime or some shit because this was just out of the blue and frickking amazing! Props to you Japan, good shit.
The real sauce is between Goku and Jiren. Stronger than the god of destruction, and obviously a tank, Jiren single-handedly took on multiple enemies himself. I mean shit, he didn’t even need his teammates lol. However, he was no match for Universe 7 and Goku’s awakened Ultra instincts.
That’s right Ultra Instincts is as cool as it sounds. Like the name suggests, it’s a state where the fighter has heightened abilities and sensitivities to their natural stimulus. This allows them to move according to their instincts bypassing the brains electrical signals to produce faster movements. Even the god of destructions said that they would have a hard time obtaining it.
Judging from his white aura and heightened abilities, this would make this transformation stronger than the Super Saiyan Blue form. I still have doubts about it being stronger in terms of strength than the Super Saiyan 4 transformation. If we’re talking about dodging abilities then ultra instincts easily take the cake lol. He be dodging Jiren like me dodging questions in math class lol.
After disappearing for like 20 episodes, Frieza decides to show up and help Goku take down Jiren. He was actually quite helpful despite his annoying personality. And then Android 17, after everyone else thought he blew up comes back into the fight. So many WTF moments I swear it will give you a headache lol
In the end, Android 17 was the only one left standing in the ring. He was granted 1 wish from Super Shenron. What would be the most morally ethical wish? That’s right, a boat cruise around the world. I wish lol. He decided to wish for all the universes that were eliminated to be restored once again. What a nice guy. But it turns out, if anything other than that was wished, Zeno Sama would have erased every universe for being so selfish. Damn midget, talk about attitude lol.
That concludes the story of Dragon Ball Super. Keep an eye out for the movie Broly, which is a continuation of the story. I wonder how long my free promotions will go on for before they get noticed lol. It will be lit my bros. And for anyone knows interested in watching Dragon Ball Super, don’t give it a second thought. It’s a great anime that I grew up with and it has never disappointed me. Apart from when Yamcha didn’t die permanently lol.
Android 21 Waifu from Dragon Ball Fighter Z Game ❤
I think I have taken a liking to you. Won’t you be my darling?
Welcome to Darling In The Franxx, where love triangles are abundant and the plot doesn’t really matter lol. You’ll experience first hand what it was like when Adam and Eve started out as the isolated children explore marriage and the arts of baby making. Throw in some huge alien robot fights and hot girls and you’ve got yourself an anime you’ll never forget!
In the not so distant future, humanity was invaded by the Kloxosaurs. This has driven humanity into living inside enclosed mobile pods that transverse the deserted plains of earth. Humanity has created Franxx’s, which are pretty much giant Gundams to fight against the Kloxosaurs. To make things interesting, you need a male and female pair called parasites working in unison to operate the Franxx otherwise the mental overload would be too great.
Our main boy protagonist Hiro was feeling depressed as he had just failed his Franxx exam. He was having compatibility issues with his partner Naomi and both of them were about to be deported to rejection town. On his walk of shame, Hiro was walking past a lake and notices a pair of clothing hanging off a branch. Our little pervert decides to have a look at who it was. To his disappointment he didn’t see anyone…..or so he thought!
There was a girl doing the backstroke in the middle of the lake. His little virgin eyes couldn’t handle it so he looked away. He decides to get another peek in for the memory picture and then boom, she was gone? Thinking that the girl has drowned, Hiro rushes in to save her. The beautiful girl with pink hair, fully butt naked breaks through the water surface with a fish in her mouth. She was bewitching as her red horns pillared through her hair as water was dripping off her curves leaving Hiro with her pink underwear in his hand. Yes, you read that right, Hiro is a pervert lol.
Hiro’s classmates were attending the graduation ceremony to become official Franxx pilots. During the middle of the ceremony, a Class Mohorovicic (I don’t even know what that means) Klaxosaur attacks and ruins the whole ceremony. Zero Two, the girl you just saw naked, deployed her Franxx Sterlizia with her partner in order to defend the base. She is the infamous partner killer who ends up killing her partner as nobody has any decent compatibility with her.
Hiro sees this as a redemption opportunity (practically last chance before he’s sent off to god knows where). Zero Two takes a liking to Hiro, asking him to be her Darling and kisses him. This activates Strelitzia’s true form that takes down the giant Klaxosaur even before I had time to finish my hot chocolate. By the way for anyone who is confused, Zero Two is a human-klaxosaur hybrid and a hot one at that 😉
After the battle, Hiro’s childhood friend Ichigo was concerned about the whole event and his safety. Since Hiro had no recollection of the battle, many people were sceptical about the whole incident. The leaders of APE decided to put together a mock battle to see if Hiro was the real deal, this time he wasn’t allowed to pair up with darling Zero Two. He was teamed up with Ichigo in Delphinium which didn’t really go so well, but hey at least he got to first base again lol.
To make the love triangles a bit easy for you guys to understand, I shall try to attempt a half-assed version of explaining it. So Hiro and Zero Two like each other, but Ichigo is in love with Hiro and Goro is secretly in love with Ichigo. Oh and I forgot to mention that Ikuno is lesbian for Ichigo. Now Futoshi is madly in love with Kokoro but she’s got the hots for Mitsuru. Miku and Zorome both had a thing for each other but never ended up being together and just remained friends (with benefits?). And just to throw my two cents in there, Nana and Dr Franxx were probably around the 3rd base with each other.
Long story short Mitsuru wanted to prove that he was the better pilot and one up Hiro by partnering up with Zero Two. He got a mental breakdown afterwards and yeah….. from then on Zero Two and Hiro were officially darlings that nobody fucked with. However, Hiro does not go unscratched either. After riding with Zero two a blue tumour started to grow on his chest and his health declined considerably. But when push comes to shove, he gets over it and recovers with the help from Zero Two.
Childish elements were incorporated into the anime which made it entertaining. The guys and girls had a week of disagreement with each other where the girls set a line across the dorm to prevent the boys from entering their side. Zero Two, however, didn’t give a shit and went to see Hiro as she pleases lol. However, there were moments which unified all of them together again and I believe that was a beautiful portrayal of friendship. A lot of jealousy, anger and disagreements were seen but were trumped by hopes of dreams as everybody united their strengths.
Flashbacks of Hiro’s and Zero Two’s past were truly tragic and fuzzy because their memories got erased. Once they both remembered their promise to each other, their love and bond strengthened to the maxxxx. Zero Two is so BAE. Their relationship had lots of ups and downs and definitely filled with drama like most relationships which made the anime seem super realistic. They had to battle through hardship, learning responsibilities and enjoying experiences such as cleaning, cooking and baby making….. 😉 The wedding ceremony was pretty damn cute as well 🙂
I’m not ganna go into this too much detail but Dr Franxx was able to meet the first Kloxosaur Princess 001 when he was younger. His arm was torn off in the battle but was able to obtain a sample of her hair to create our waifu Zero Two! Turns out the Kloxasures were not actually the bad people but the VIRM were. What a plot twist finding out the VIRM’s were disguised as Papa and his comrades. Hiro was not taking any of this shit, took Zero Two into the Star Entity and transforms it into a giant Strelitzia Apus to defeat the invaders.
Now Hiro, Zero Two and the Klaxosaurs takes off into space to put an end to the VIRM race. They go through a warp gate carrying a bomb and headed towards the VIRM base which took about 2 years to reach. Meanwhile, the remaining parasites rebuild humanity on earth by having children with each other. Who will win, you guys have to find out for yourselves 😉 Sadly Hiro and Zero two did not survive but their souls were able to return to earth and were reincarnated a thousand years later. They met each other as a pair of children and lived happily ever after ❤
Who is your favourite Waifu out of all these stunners? ❤
Once you’ve met someone you never really forget them.
In the film, Spirited Away, directed by Hayao Miyazaki, the two prominent film techniques used were visual symbolism and dialogue. These techniques helped viewers understand the three main ideas in Spirited away, which are greed, identity and good vs evil. Spirited Away is about a 10-year-old girl called Chihiro moving towns and stumble across an abandoned theme park village. Her parents were turned into pigs after eating some of the local food. Chihiro finds a mysterious boy Haku who tells her that this is a supernatural resort, and she needs to work to free her parents.
In the film Spirited Away visual symbolismhelped viewers understand the theme of Good vs Evil.For most of the film, Haku along with Chihiro is on the good side, whereas Yubaba and Zeniba, are on the bad side.Visual symbolism makes the audience believe that the characters are associated with mystical powers, emotions, and states of mind. For example, Haku and Chihiro both have very fair skin which is symbolising innocence like an angel. Chihiro has small facial features, like a baby which are considered cute in our society. Another example is Yubaba and Zeniba who are both witches have portrayed with very large heads almost the same size as their bodies making them appear tough and evil.Furthermore, she is very wrinkly and has lots of warts on her face. This makes us think, people who appear more ugly are associated with evil.
I believe that director Hayao Miyazaki wants the audience to realise that we humans classify people into groups by just like we classify Haku and Chihiro as good and Zeniba and Yubaba as evil. This is called Racism also known as a classification of people into groups, when we classify people into groups we create stereotypes. This is when we think Yubaba is ugly because she’s a witch and stereotypes of witches are that they evil. Why are they evil? Because when we were kids our society and culture taught us this ideology.
Visual Symbolism helped viewers understand the theme of Greed. The owner of the bathhouse, Yubaba is the most greedy person out there because almost every time we see her in the movie she is usually dressed in rich clothing with gold jewellery and other excessive gems. She does this so she can show her power over everyone else. For example, when Yubaba realized that the customer was giving gold she shouted “Ahh, gold! All Gold!”. But as a punishment of being greedy, the gold turned into mud. Everyone in the bathhouse is greedy but it truly shows when No face was creating gold and giving it away. When this happened everyone started to give No face delicious or exotic foods.
An example of Greed was when Chihiro parents went into a restaurant that they weren’t invited to and started eating rapidly. This symbolised both greed and gluttony, therefore, they were turned into pigs. Hayao Miyazaki did this to show the sin of greed.As said in the bible “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions”(Luke 12:15). Hayao Miyazaki is trying to show that everyone can become greedy if they are persuaded by the right things.
Visual Symbolism helped viewers understand the theme of Identity. When Chihiro signed the contract to get a job at the bathhouse, Yubaba stole parts of her name and made it Sen. This is called Contract Bestowal and is the way that Yubaba keeps the worker from escaping the bathhouse. Over time the workers eventually forget their name and lose their identity. An example is when Yubaba said “So your names Chihiro such a pretty name (Pull characters of her name Chihiro and leaf Sen) and belongs to me now from now on your name is Sen”
But luckily Haku reminds Sen by saying “Here are your old clothes, you’ll need them to get home”. She remembers her real name and can use it escape. She also remembers Haku’s name which is Kohaku. When she was young she fell into a river and a river spirit called the Kohaku saved her. This set Haku and Chihiro free and they were able to leave the spirit world. Hayao Miyazaki could be symbolising that when you take someone’s name, you are also taking away their identity also taking away their soul.
After Yababa stole Sen’s identity (formerly known as Chihiro), Sen had to take care of herself because her parent were now pigs. This made her become more responsible for herself and her job giving her a stable identity in the bathhouse. An example of her having a stable identity is when she was offered gold from No face but refused. Chihiro learned from her father’s mistake of thinking that money can solve every problem.
She wisely chooses to do her duties instead of taking gold from No Face. No Face has never had an identity because has never had any friends or family that could teach him. He is trying to lure the bathhouse workers with gold and with want they want gold. If they accept No face will devour them and take the identity of the eaten person. Since he has the identity of the bathhouse worker he has all the greed, gluttony and viciousness and this doesn’t make him too happy because they were pretty empty on the inside.This would explain why No face wants to have Sen’s identity because she has the best identity in the bathhouse.
Furthermore, she was very respectful and kind to No face. Hayao Miyazaki wanted to symbolise No face as a Hungry ghost. Hungry ghosts are similar to no face because a hungry ghost has a mouth the size of a needle’s eye and a stomach the size of a mountain as written in Buddhist text. No face is like a hungry ghost because he had a never-ending appetite. The director Hayao Miyazaki is trying to explain that our identity is the result of other people’s identity especially close friends or family.
In the film, Spirited Away Dialogue helped viewers understand the theme of Greed. Chihiro’s father said at the start of the film “Don’t worry, you’ve got Daddy here. He’s got credit cards and cash.”. Chihiro’s father thought that wealth can compensate for lack of manners and respect. Chihiro learns from her dad’s mistakes. An example is when No face was offering gold then Chihiro said: “I don’t want any but thanks, I’m sorry but I’m in a very big hurry” and runs off. Chihiro knew that money or gold can’t solve every issue and those who give into greed with be condemned to servitude. I believe that the director Hayao Miyazaki is trying to show people the punishment of the greed, gluttony as mentioned in the seven deadly sins is paid in enslavement.
In conclusion, in the film, Spirited Away, directed by Hayao Miyazaki, several film techniques such as visual symbolism and dialogue. These techniques helped me understand the three main ideas in Spirited away is Greed, identity and Good vs Evil. The director Hayao Miyazaki got inspiration from the Christian bible, hungry ghost from the ancient Buddhist text. Furthermore, director Hayao Miyazaki was trying to show the consequences of the 7 deadly sins such as Greed, Gluttony.
There’s no lack of painful things in this world, but hunger and loneliness must surely be two of the worst.
What do you do when the HOTTEST GIRL in school asks you out to her family gathering outside of town? Hell yeah, I would say yes. Who wouldn’t? Well, that’s kinda what happened to Kenji Koiso. A Kuonji HIgh Schoolmathematical genius and part-time moderator for the virtual reality world of OZ. This kid was pretty much your typical socially awkward nerd who pretty much needs to get some.
One day, Kenji and his friend Takashi were messing around on their part-time job when booooom, Natsuki comes barging in and asks out of them to be her boyfriend.Natsuki informs them that she requires an escort for her great-grandmothers 90ths birthday for about 1 week. Sure why not. Little did Kenji know, that once they arrived at the Sakae’s estate in Ueda, Natsuki introduced Kenji as her fiancé. And little did he know again, the Jinnochis’ are the living descendants of the Takeda clan who challenged the Tokugawa clan in the 1600’s. Talk about a powerhouse lol.
The huge family enjoyed each other’s companies and have a great time. Kenji was fitting in just dandy and everyone thought he was the man. However because the anime world needs a little drama, the producers decide to stir up some shit. Kenji met Natsuki’s half-uncle Wabisuke Jinoichi, a coding expert who was greeted warmly (lol) for stealing the family fortune and running off to America 10 years ago. He is the creator of Love Machine, the Artificial Intelligence created for the military.
Oz is pretty much like Facebook but MUCH BIGGER. It is a virtual world that allows people to create personal avatars and engage in activities such as sports, shopping, communication you name it. OZ HAS EVERYTHING. Because it’s super easy and convenient to use the application, people become overly dependant on the system. Boasting about their super high security and how impenetrable their mega encryption was, this was sure to get hacked lol.
One night Kenji discovers King Kazma was actually a 13-year-old name Kazuma who was Natsuki’s cousin.King Kazma as you can probably tell is the king of e-sports. King Kazma is a tall bunny wearing jeans with long ears. That’s was probably the best description you’ll ever find on the internet by yours truly. That is why I will provide pictures lol. His agile fighting style and power put him in another league than the rest of the competitors.
One night, Kenji was checking his phone and received a peculiar text message from OZ. Rather than ignoring the message filled with numbers, he decides to stay up all night to crack the code. Not only that he sent the answer back lol. ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE THE NEXT DAY. It turns out that the code was actually a password that can be used to override all the systems of Oz. And since Oz is like the lifeline for every service possible in this anime, you can guess how chaotic things got. Hospital, public transport, electricity systems all went haywire. And guess who was responsible……that’s right, Kenji’s face appeared on the news as a wanted man.
It turns out the A.I Love Machine has stolen Kenji’s avatar on Oz to hack the infrastructure that was causing the whole mess. This causes modern world issues such as traffic congestion, waterway failure and even the malfunctions of electronics. The little relatives Shota and Rika Jinnouchi discovered about Kenji’s involvement in the whole incident and got their police cousin Shota to arrest him. BUUUUT because of the huge traffic they had to turn back lol.
This may possibly, nah fuck that, this was the most moving scene I have ever seen in the history of anime.The 90-year-old grandma Sakae had enough of the situation and decided to lend a helping hand. She got out her contact book filled with phone numbers and started ringing important people. She didn’t say much but the words and encouragement she gave enabled the people to work their hardest and minimise the damage. This scene deserves a grammy I swear to god. It was that good!
But, we can’t have the plot go smoothly, can we. You guessed it, the grandma dies the next morning. The doctor uncle, Mansuke explains that Love Machine deactivated her heart monitor app that notifies the hospital about abnormalities. Low blow Love Machine. Now it’s time for payback. The Jinnouchi family team up to take the AI down. A truly beautiful scene, everyone played a role in helping out. One cousin brought a supercomputer, one relative a huge crane and some ice to act as a coolant, one uncle brought some squid. And more squid. And more……. Yes, he brought 3 boxes of Squids lol. But the cooperation they had with each other truly made me want to be a part of their family for a few seconds.
The hunt for Love Machine begins. We’ve got Kazuma leading the main fight. Things were getting heated up and at first, it seems like King Kazma would win. Shit turns to custard and boom, the AI evolves and learns the attack patterns making it incredibly tricky to defeat. Idiot Shota saw the massive ice blocks around the supercomputer and decided to move it to grannys room to keep her body from decomposing. I mean he had good intentions but seriously wrong timing.
King Kazma froze due to the supercomputer overheating and Love Machine just keeps devouring other avatars Kirby lol. Now Love machine got so pissed off, he took over the Arawashi Asteroid Probe and make its crash trajectory towards a nuclear power plant in Japan. Everyone was left in despair until Natsuki found Granny’s will asking everyone to forgive Wabisuke for his actions. Ultimately they were able to get him back and it was revealed that Love Machine loves games.
You’ve probably never heard of this but the game Natsuki used to confront Love Machine was Koi-Koi. They wagered the remaining accounts in desperation to sway Love Machine into the game like 50% discount display signs outside McDonald’s. With the help of Oz users worldwide, Natsuki was able to finally defeat Love Machine. KOI-KOI BITCH! Being a sore loser, Love Machine redirects the space probe towards the Sakae’s estate!
This was the most heated scene in the whole entire movie that will have you biting your nails. Kenji had to attempt and break into the space probes GPS through a series of complex mathematical codes. He only had like 3 minutes to solve 10 pages of code failing multiple attempts to do so. You can literally feel the pressure in your own seat as you see Kenji throwing away the pen in an attempt to crack it in his head and his nose bleed. He succeeded and redirects the space probe away from the household saving everyone!
The Jinnouchi was delighted over the victory praising Kenji as a hero. Being pressured by 20 pairs of eyes, the family suggested that Natsuki and Kenji get married for real to repent for the lie about the engagement. The moment of truth comes and Natsuki and Keni were forced to kiss in front of the whole family. Did he do ittttttt. Nope, he got a nosebleed. On the bright side, he got a peck on the cheek so we’ll take what we can get lol. The support and warmth in this family movie were phenomenal. We can all be pests to one another but at the end of the day, we’re all family. Learn to forgive and forget because life’s too short to hold a grudge.
