Introduction to series, I think 😈

In these series (still don‘t know how to call them) I’m going to be talking about newest technologies, computer programs, game genres and other similar things that are somehow connected to internet. I’ve already accumulated lots of topics for these series and I hope you will all enjoy these. Here’s the 1st part:

Anime

Why this topic? Because I spent most of the nights watching anime instead of sleep + someone on The Voice site asked me to. About anime. To put it simply anime are Japanese cartoons with its own drawing styles, original characters and environment. There are lots of anime genres, like action, comedy, romance, horror, slice of life and many others. There are also mangas, Japanese comics. They have big influence to anime, because most of anime series are based on mangas. That’s it for common knowledge, I guess.

As for recommendations I would recommend watching: 2

1

1st No Game No Life | Adventure, comedy, ecchi, fantasy.
2nd Spice and Wolf | Adventure, fantasy, historical, romance.
3rd Katanagatari | Action, adventure, historical, martial arts.
4th NHK no Youkoso! | Comedy, drama, psychological, romance.
5th Death Note | Mystery, psychological, supernatural, thriller.

Note that I had to mix up genres, so it would fit for everyone. It was very difficult for me to pick, I would have added 10 more, but sadly, I don’t have enough space.

I’m going to talk a little bit about all these anime recommendations. I’ll try not to spoil the entire plot.
31st No Game No Life – brother and sister, two NEETS, trapped inside a fantasy world, where everything is determined by a games, for example chess match.
2nd Spice and Wolf – It’s a story about merchant trading in medieval times during medieval times. A time when the word of the catholic church was more important than anything else and anyone else was deemed a witch or heretic. 4Merchant meets sharp tongued Holo, powerful wolf deity. Holo offers to become his business partner if he eventually takes her to her northern home, Yoitsu. They travel in search for economic opportunities he begins to realize that his aspirations are slowly morphing into something unexpected.
3rd Katanagatari – Long ago the masterful sword smith Shikizaki Kiki crafted 1000 blades, though his twelve final works, the legendary deviant blades were prime among the rest. 5The main protagonist Shichika is himself, a sword. He goes on an adventure to collect all the swords with his partner. I shall not reveal anything more. If only I could forget the plot and watch it 1 more time…

4th NHK no Youkoso – main character Satsou is a twenty two years old self-isolated guy, who suffers from paranoia. He has already came up with countless obscure conspiracy theories. 6One day he meets a girl who offers help to fight his paranoia, although it isn’t so easy…

5th Death Note – I remember watching it when I was younger, with my older brother. I think about 1 years ago I re-watched it…I have to say, there really is a reason it’s ranked #30 in the world. Story goes on about a student and the main character Yagami Light, which encounters a death god, which came to human world to escape from boredom in death gods world. Light gets “death note”. Notes where if you write you remember the face, write first name and last name, the person dies. There are also other rules, but Im not going to be explaining them here. Light decides to extinguish all criminals in order to build a new world where crime does not exist and people worship him as a god. Investigators from police takes actions, and counts on an assistance from worlds best detective “L”…Story involves lots of logical thinking, so it’s definitely worth your time. 3rd photo, Ryuk, death god.7
