After a freak hunting accident, Jane Jameson wakes up as a vampire. Though her sire tries to explain the basics, she still needs some time to warm up to the idea. Going from unemployed librarian to vampire is already a big step, but when someone is trying to frame her for vampire murders, she knows she’s in really big trouble. She not only has to keep her head low but her eyes peeled for who might be out to get her.

The words librarian and vampire do not seem to be compatible but Harper proved me wrong. Jane is a very interesting and quirky character. She is a fun character, as is Gabriel. I did feel like the relationship between Gabriel and Jane was a little instant, however, it kinda works well on with this story. A little murder mystery mixed in with the getting used to being used to being a vampire.

Each character was given very unique and interesting personality. Not only the vampires were graced with personalities but even the humans too. The world is well developed, as is the vampire world. I enjoyed the interpersonal relations that were developed in this book. I can see this becoming a very good book series.

Interview with Monster Girls

Based on a manga by the same name, this anime is one that I really enjoyed. It’s pretty much the standard run of the mill school based, slice-of-life anime.As you all should know by now, I am a huge fan of shojou slice-of-life comedies so this is right up my alley.

Takahashi Tetsuo is a high school science teacher who has always been interested in Demi-humans, even back in his university days. One day, 3 new girls arrive at school who are all demi’s as does 1 new teacher. Takahashi suddenly has access to teenagers who are willing to answer his question. The 4 demis however, find solace in him as a councilor while he helps them work out their struggles about being demis.

This is a fun light-hearted anime that deal with the struggles of being different. It also deals with the social discrimination that people who are different face. All in all it’s really fun.

Do you like chibi drawings? Do you like girls fighting monsters and working together? Do you like scantily clad women, though it doesn’t look so bad because they’re chibi? If you so than this short anime is for you.

We follow a group of girls who are scouted to join a special school to teach them how to use their Kaiju powers. You will need a little bit of information that is given in the first episode. There was once a battle between Kaiju and humans. Once the Human’s won the Kaijus were absorbed into the human society and certain girls are born with their powers. The society has come to figured out how to control the Kaiju girls’ powers and use them for good.

This is a cutesy anime that is worth the watch. It’s short and loveable so it won’t take you long. It took me a while to realise how scantily clad they were because of their chibi forms. Normally it bothers me but this time it was hardly noticeable.  Totally worth a watch if you need something a little more light hearted.

Crane Game Girls Season 2

Standard

So the girls went from nobodies to some bodies in 0 second flat. After saving the work from Dark gorilla’s plans, the girls go of and become real idols. Rocketed into fame due to their success in using crane games to save the earth. However, Dark Gorilla is back and this time he has a new plan. Enter Dark Cherry, they are an idol group that Dark Gorilla has put together to defeat the Crane Game Girls and finally invade earth. The girls are confronted with this new threat with out their beloved Saya-san by their side, as she is now working for Dark Gorilla. 

If last season was a WTF for you, this one isn’t much better. Though the first are not using Crane Games to fight, this time that have a Crane Game space ship/stage. Dark cherry continually pulls them into I’d battles, however, these battles have nothing to do with being and idol at first. The series primarily revolves around dark cherry and their ineptitude as idols. I had a good laugh at this short anime, but expect it not to make any sense for about 90% of the time.

Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-Kun

Standard

Ok. So this is probably one of my favourite slice-of-life animes that exist right now. It is based on a manga with 8 books.

We follow Sakura, a girl who is in love with her classmate Nazaki. When she finally confesses, Nozaki misunderstands her since she used the word fan. That is when she finds out that Nozaki is a manga artist. She starts to help him with making it and befriends his whacky friend base in order to get closer to him.

There is sadly only 12 episodes and it leaves you wanting more. The animes is so cute that you want Sakura and Nozaki to get together, however, it’s so funny that you really doesn’t want them to be together. All the characters have their own quirks that makes you fall in love with them. As you can see I love this anime, so I feel like it’s worth a watch.
