Enjoy DiaLovers Anime Like a Comedy

Warning: I watched the show like this and I found it to be an hilarious experience that shouldn’t be hidden way, but in no way do I mean to trash the show!

Watch it Dubbed.
The dub is a miracle on this world, it’ll make you howl in laughter each time they say anything. DiaLovers was not gifted with a good dub, but it just means it makes the show even funnier!

Watch with a group of people

You’ll both be laughing together, and bring about about the best of each other. While I watched it with a group of friends, I kept rewinding to parts that made us laugh extra hard. It made the experience even better!

Marathon it

That’s right, the less you think of it and the plot, the more enjoyment you’ll get out of it. Also must admit the show is pretty to look at, and there were some sexy scenes that had me shook and had to rewind back /remembers it, /mops sweat. I’m weak to thigh bites, okay? 😹😹

Just enjoy the ride

Not gonna lie, I know there’s a lot of hate, but there’s way worse shows out there. Take it for what it is, sexy vampires being hilarious (and douchebags at times) cause all their actions were just so random I almost peed myself laughing 😹😹😹👌

Fifth and last: It’s just an anime, don’t take it so serious

No, really. I know anime can be serious, and thought provoking, doesn’t mean all the content can be. Also, realize that this is a fantasy, and girls can have unsafe fantasies. There’s no issues with that, don’t trash the girls or the fandom for liking it.

And those are my five tidbit advice’s for that. In no way am I trashing the show, or the fandom, or the fans, I’ve not only done this to DiaLov, I’ve done it to other otome anime adaptations like Amnesia, Brothers Conflict, because sometimes it’s just nice to pull back and laugh, we’re here to enjoy this media!

Have you seen DiaLov? If not, if you will are you gonna do it the comedy way or the serious way? Do you hate it? Love it? Neutral to it? Have you played the games! Tell me all, I’m curious!

Manga Spotlight: Boku Girl is the Best Ecchi GenderBender Manga Ever

Suzushiro Mizuki is a 1st year high school student who has the difficulty of constantly being mistaken for a girl. It’s so bad that he’s endlessly rebuffing the confessions of many men. Even the girl he has a crush on seems to think of him more as one of the girls rather than as a potential love interest.
Meanwhile, the trickster god Loki has grown bored with playing her tricks on her fellow gods. Turning her attention to the mortal world, she targets Mizuki for her next round of fun. The result: Mizuki wakes up with budding breasts and a missing part of his anatomy.
What else is in store for Mizuki and how will he deal with it?From MAL


Volumes: 11

Status: Finished

Genres: Comedy, Ecchi, Gender Bender, Mature, Romance, Seinen, Supernatural, Slice of Life (from MU)

Author: Sugito Akira

Warning: Nipples and breasts uncensored in here, this is a mature manga almost R18 really!
Mizuki is amazing, but that might just might be my boner speaking. I’m a total hoe for small boobies and ecchi done good. I like my ecchi being provocative without being porn outright. Though let me tell you Boku Girl actually has some chapters that are very porny, though they censor the D and V sadly 😭💔

Let me not mistake you, this is heavily and about Mizuki’s turmoil and gender, but also very sexualized. Though it is very sexual, very ecchi, and has some very common stereotypes of a gender bender (like how do girls pee), it’s actually an interesting one.

I can’t say if it’s respectful of transsexuals because I’m not one and so I can’t say what they’d think or feel while reading this manga.Not going to defend this manga one way or another, I just take it for the funny and ecchi scenes tbh 😹

Mizuki fights with both wanting to turn into a male again because he likes Fujiwara, but also coming to terms that he’s always liked more feminine things that got repressed and come out when he gets turned into a girl. If anything, Mizuki is very gender neutral and can pass for both genders whichever way s/he goes hehe 👌

First of all, I must say there’s some very sexual harassment towards Mizuki even as a male, more so as a female, but it’s done in a serious way. It’s all taken in a comedy way. Let it not mistake you, this is 80% comedy, 20% ecchi… Okay maybe more, more like half ecchi, half comedy. The point being, this is hilarious and made me laugh so much. Most of the funny moments come from Takeru, Mizuki’s best friend, having the dokis now that Mizuki is a female and is constantly around him ungarded. Also from jealously when males start coming to Mizuki.

An example which makes me laugh every time:

I must say that 90% of the cast is either bisexual or pansexual, they’re fine with whichever gender Mizuki actually is, and don’t care. Though they’re mostly used for funny/gag moments, it still shows a really accepting world, especially when Mizuki being a girl now comes out to school. There’s never anyone bullying or be in disgusted, just acceptance and Mizuki being desired by males and females.

This might be why I like this manga a lot, there’s all kind of sexualities, without ever feeling like they’re putting down anyone. A rather mature thing that I enjoy, because sure this is a mature almost R18 manga, but a lot of mature mangas aren’t as mature in their stories and characters. Which is not the case here. And you know, it feels good, having a mature manga with mature themes that have maturity in their thinking.

No one is gonna give Boku Girl accolades for a brilliant plot or anything, but I give it all the accolades when it comes to gender, sexual attraction, diversity of sexes and overall presentation.

And hey, I’m not saying this just because it gave me one of the biggest non existential boners ever. I spent a week or so thinking and remembering this, and just being overall horny 😹👌
But hey, how can I not when Mizuki is cute and sexy?

There’s a lot of scenes of Mizuki growing into a now female body and discovering what it’s capable of, in a sexual sense, that are never pervy just sexy and niiiceee. Mostly helped by Takeru, and his elephant dick :roll::roll::roll:👌, because while Takeru only ever saw Mizuki as a male, despite Mizuki being mistaken as a girl, once Mizuki turns female Takeru’s boner is ever present. Takeru is actually a really good friend, and is always supporting Mizuki, trying to help turn Mizuki male because that’s what Mizuki want. In case you can’t see, my ship is Mizuki x Takeru. This manga is finally completely translated (by fans thank you so much!!!), but I won’t tell you who is the winning partner, if Takeru or Fujiwara, or if Mizuki returns to being male or female 🙄

This is super highly regarded by me, I have high standards for ecchi, I don’t know if it’s because I’m female but lots of ecchi done for males don’t work for me, so I was pleasantly surprised this did. Might also be because I’m a huge comedy fan, and this hits all the home runs with just comedy alone! 👌👌

So if you like ecchi or/and gender bender, or want to try one, this might just be the one for you~

Have you ever heard about Boku Girl? Are you interested in reading it after reading this post? Do you like ecchi? What about gender bender? What’s your favorite gender bender and/or ecchi? Tell me all, I’m curious!

Taisuke Kanou is your average 16-year-old student. He has two close friends, Hirose and Megumi. Hirose has trouble with bullies, but Taisuke is always there to defend him, even though he just winds up getting beaten instead of Hirose. During class one day, Taisuke is hit by something unworldly and for that split second, he sees a vision of the universe. As he’s walking home from school, he sees a girl fall and die in front of him, but his first thought is jealousy. He later finds out that the strange sensation that hit him is spreading throughout Japan. Those who are struck by it either commit suicide or “evolve,” but the comrades that evolve usually have dark intentions for the rest of the world.

This is a special post because today is my birthday, growing old and aging, nearing death slowly. And what better than talking about this series?

This is a hard series to talk about. First I read it with a friend, and second the mangaka wrote it while he was sick and knowing he was going to die, and the manga has a lot of those feelings embedded, and third the mangaka did die right after finishing it. So feelings. I had them, I still have them. I can’t reread this because I’m too close and need distance to forget all that to be able to engage again.

I’m not going to be saying if this is anime, or debating the semantics of anime, go ahead if you want to, but I don’t really care as long as I can watch~

This is the introductory season, we get to meet all the characters one episode at a time, good and bad, the world and its terms, and get an inkling of what’s on stake. We also get to see the teams emerge, their issues and resolving to get a stronger bond. A bonding season, you could say.

One of the things that attracted me to this show was that it was made by Monty Oum, rest his soul, maker of the Dead Fantasy which I love and felt sad it couldn’t be finished by him, another was that Pink and Lilli kept talking about it. Talk about one show enough with me and you’ll end up convincing me to give it a shot /winks suggestively xP

Coming to this show was jarring for multiple reasons. First was the English voices, I’m not used to them aside in cartoons. Second, the 3D graphics. Third was that the show starts kinda weirdly, it half plomps us in the middle of the story and tells us to figure it out, and in the other half slows down and barrel disposes all the exposition :”D

After I got used to the 3D, which is really good!, the English voices, also really good!, and the show started picking up pace, I must say I got quite hooked. Not to the fever point I’ve seen of some die-hard fans, but it’s definitely fun and super enjoyable. My favorite parts are the comedy scenes and the kickass battles. Monty Oum showed he could epic battles in Dead Fantasy, and he definitely demonstrated it here again, claps and props to him and all the team at RoosterTeeth that got involved in this show!

There’s not much that can be said, since this is a “meet the characters, the world, their relationship” type of season, there isn’t too much plot, it’s more of a setup, but definitely a good one. I ended up wanting to continue to Season 2, which is where, hopefully, the setup will blast open into non stop epic badassery. Or something of the sort xD

The episodes are also pretty short, good or bad things depending on tastes, to me they felt pretty good since I like quicker things. One thing can be said is that every episode is never dull, there’s always some action, some comedy and engagement between the girls, and occasional dude, yes GASP, this ain’t an all girl show and there’s plenty of focus on guys too. They’re hot and good looking too, specially undressed /winks ;P

I’m curious who has seen this, and what they’ve thought of it. Did the English voices put you off? Maybe the 3D graphics? Or maybe you liked all those? I’m curious, so tell me all!

*:・゚✧Anime Spotlight: Yowamushi Pedal Will Give You a Ride

yowapeda

Sakamichi Onoda is a cheerful otaku looking to join his new school’s anime club, eager to finally make some friends. Unfortunately, the club has been disbanded and he takes it upon himself to revive it by finding students who are willing to join. Without much luck, Onoda decides to make a round trip to Akihabara on his old, bulky city bicycle, a weekly 90-kilometer ride he has been completing since fourth grade.

This is when he meets fellow first year student, Shunsuke Imaizumi, a determined cyclist who is using the school’s steep incline for practice. Surprised by Onoda’s ability to climb the hill with his specific type of bicycle, Imaizumi challenges him to a race, with the proposition of joining the anime club should Onoda win. And thus begins the young boy’s first foray into the world of high school bicycle racing!

This is a sports anime I’ve wanted to write for a while now, cause I never see it mentioned around, nor do I see much love towards it.Heck I see a lot of people dismiss it for the art style, or because it has no bishies to make them want to watch, which is just…ugh. It’s a goddamn sports anime, not a guaranteed bishounen heaven! One of the reasons I love Daiya is that most of the characters are just normal kids, some ugly, some cute, some fat, some tall, some small, each with their own uniqueness and personality to complete the package. Sports anime is not, and shall never be, defined by if it has bishounens, okay? 💢💢💢 But that’s a rant for another day /sighs deeply

I watched this after I finished Daiya and entered into that “I NEED MOAR SPORTS ANIME, ALL THE SPORTS”, which means I watched this, Haikyuu, tried some with girls (oh do not get me started on that, that’s a rant for another day too 😹😹😹), some older ones too. Out of all the ones that I watched, YowaPeda, and Haikyuu, stood out to me as the best ones.

Before I get into all the good qualities, I will say YowaPeda does take a bit to really hit stride and get you hooked. The first 6 episodes is just introducing the dudes, Onoda’s skills and honing of them, until the team gets full and they can start biking away on the races. Bear with it, and you’ll find yourself in a highly enjoyable, super cute and pumping sports anime.
