My 100th Blog Post and to mark such a feat in itself I am going to cover my top fave animes of all time.
Okay so this anime is very old and I am well aware of it. Now this anime was one of the ones I first watched when I was just getting into the anime world. This anime features a boy named Daisuke Niwa. Here is the plot for this anime.
D.N.Angel follows the adventures of Daisuke Niwa, an average teenage boy. At the story’s opening, Daisuke declares love for his crush, a girl named Risa Harada, on his fourteenth birthday. She rejects him, and later that day, the heart-broken Daisuke undergoes a strange mutation that changes him into another person. He is told calmly by his mother Emiko that, because of a strange genetic condition, all the males in Daisuke’s family gain the countenance of Dark Mousy, a famous phantom thief.
The transformation occurs every time Daisuke has romantic feelings for his crush or whenever he thinks too long about her. Dark changes back into Daisuke the same way. Daisuke is forced to keep his family’s secret and control his alter ego, Dark (whom Risa, Daisuke’s crush, has fallen for), while dashing his way out of being caught by the commander of the police. Daisuke learns that in order to return to normality, he must have his unrequited love returned.
The aforementioned commander of the police is a classmate of Daisuke’s named Satoshi Hiwatari. Hiwatari suffers from his own version of the phantom-thief curse, and a bond forms between Hiwatari and Daisuke because of their similar afflictions. Hiwatari carries the alter-ego named Krad. However, though Dark and Krad hate one another, Hiwatari and Daisuke maintain a strained but genuine friendship, despite Dark’s constant moaning.
Dark steals certain artistic objects of value, works made by Satoshi’s ancestors, because they contain dangerous magical properties. Some of them, such as “The Second Hand of Time” and “Argentine” also have personalities of their own. Some of the objects that he steals are quite dangerous. Dark’s method of stealing is based on garnering attention; before stealing, Emiko will send out a warning of what will be stolen.
Now I found this anime very interesting and not to mention very different. This anime first had it’s run in 2003. From there it went on to have a manga adaption that had two volumes in it. Not to mention that it also got a PlayStation 2 game to boot with everything else. If you don’t find a boy transforming into a notorious phantom thief interesting. Then what will you find interesting? That’s my question for you.
So at the end of the day I give this anime a high recommendation rate. Why? Simply, because it was one of the animes that got me started, and I also fell in love with the story not to mention the characters. Who wouldn’t love a bad boy like Dark? At least I know I do. Anyways that is all for this review and make sure to see what some of my other favorites are. Whatever you do don’t fall in love with a bad boy. Just kidding.
Now I am very aware that I have done a review for this anime, but that still doesn’t make it not one of my favorites. How can I explain this and put it into words? Okay what I liked about this anime was that it featured a deaf person. Oh we also can’t forget drugs! Alright I absolutely hate drugs. They cause so many deaths and problems for people. Especially since some of my family have been plagued by these drugs and which some have passed. Besides I would never be able to do drugs anyways. I am deathly afraid of needles and I can’t swallow pills of any kind. So there I have said it. Also smoking is bad and I don’t recommend doing that either, but hey it is your life and you can do whatever you want with it.
I am sure that you seen this one coming especially with the comments I made in my review. I am very serious about this one being my favorites. Although I will admit that it is so hard to choose favorites. Why? Well if I have to choose favorites it’s like I am choosing one of my children over the other. So it is very hard and also I don’t really have kids. Maybe I will someday. As I mentioned this was one of the first animes I watched when I was getting started. Does it seem like I have to many animes that got me started in the anime world? Of course not you can never have to much anime or at least I think so.
Honestly this one shouldn’t be a surprise as you know I did invest 6 years into this series. So almost half my life. Just kidding. I really liked this anime and as I said it has a soft place in my heart. So don’t be so shocked and surprised to see this anime on my favorite list. All the characters are all interesting and unique. Not one is the same as the other. Recently I showed this anime to a friend of mine. Of course I had to explain almost everything that happened up to a certain point. As we watched one of the movies of Bleach, but they seemed very interested. They told me that if they had the time that they would probably watch it. Then I told them how many episodes there were. They then changed their tune, but I hope someday they will give it a chance. As it’s a really good anime.
I also have done a review on this anime. Now the one thing I really found interesting was that it had a SAO quality to it. If you don’t know about that anime well I will be covering it later on. Although in this anime it’s not a game, but real life and along the way they lose friends who are also their teammates. So I am sure that if you watch this anime then you will become addicted to it. This one is short simply because I have already done a review on it. More or less this is just me revisiting it again and to put it on my favorites list.
This is also another one that shouldn’t be a surprise either. I really liked this anime for giving me a lot laughs. Trust me there were a lot of them. I also liked the special they did of Alice and Wonderland. Have to say that it was pretty good and also rather adorable. This is one of those animes that you can watch on a Saturday or Sunday. When you are just sitting there relaxing. It may be winter, fall, spring and or summer. No matter the season this anime is perfect for when you are relaxing. Or if you need a good laugh then I would go with this anime. As it is on my favorites list for that very reason.
