Anime Spotlight : Noragami, Mikakunin de Shinkoukei, Tokyo Ravens and Gin no Saji 2
Hey There, seeing as a lot of shows are coming to an end. I'm going to talk about a few of them every week instead of doing full reviews.
First off we have Noragami
An action comedy anime with gods, demons and lots of fighting. Noragami is about a deity called Yato, that is trying to save up so he can afford a shrine, after his previous "Shinki" left him for greener pastures, he decides to take on request that don't involve him fighting. After almost being hit by a bus while looking for a kitten, he meets Hiyori his savior and the story progresses from there. I have to say I enjoyed Noragami quite a lot and I do wish there was more than just the 12 episodes. Watch it if you liked shows like Blood Lad and Yozakura Quartet.
Secondly we have Mikakunin de Shinkoukei
Also known as engaged to the unidentified A romantic comedy about an ordinary girl called Yonomori Kobeni who finds out on her 16th Birthday that she is engaged to Mitsumine Hakuya, a boy her age that lived in the mountains, though he isn't exactly a human. Mikakunin de Shinkoukei is filled with a lot of laughs, happy music, a tiny bit of drama and enjoyable characters. Give it a shot if you want some light hearted romance fun.
Moving on the list we have Tokyo Ravens
A Fantasy Action anime filled with Ommyoji, familiars and conspiracies. Toyko Ravens is about Tsuchimikado Harutora who is from a prestigious Ommyoji family, but he is unable to see spirit energy. So he has mostly been enjoying a peaceful life up until the day his Childhood friend Tsuchimikado Natsume appears. He gets dragged into the world of Ommyoji and his destiny is set in motion. Toyko Ravens is a fairly decent action anime. Filled with fight scenes, some comedy and romance. Though there isn't much that sets it apart from many other action anime with super powers.
Last up for today's list we have Gin no Saji 2
Also known as Silver Spoon 2. The sequel to Gin no Saji which I loved. In Gin no Saji 2 the tale of Hachiken at the Agricultural school gets continued but in this second season, a lot of the focus seems more to be on relationships with other people. And the realities of being a farmer. If you haven't seen Silver Spoon yet, stop whatever you are doing. And go watch it now!
