Basilisk is a Seinen, Action, Romance filled with sword fighting, ninja skills and psychological battles enough to satisfy Samurai fans out there.

Basilisk reminds me of the Shakespearian classical tragedy Romeo and Juliet, two people from two rivalled clans falling in love. The two intended to marry to stop the fues between their groups and create peace but in certain circumstances, greed for power, the thirst for blood and drive for vengeance can't be stopped as such thruce can't wipe away hatred. Thus starts the war between these groups.

The manga design including character, background and battle scene was somewhat appreciated by seinen readers, dark, bloody read more

It's been a long time since a Martial Arts/Action manga caught my eyes as I prefer stuffs like this to be animated. After reading a few chapter, I can't believe how much spell it can bring if it was relished with ecchi, featuring an Ass-kicking Bishoujo.

Change 123 is about a girl who developed multiple personalities to cope up with the martial arts training given by her three adoptive fathers. This plot was nothing new, but the character development was very good. Just looking in there pictures will give you an idea how they differ from each other(Yeah, We know they are all sexy and is read more

What's fun when I watch a comedy show is the presence of a crazy character. In anime you'll surely find wacky characters such as Hiruma-sama (Eyeshield 21) and Kona-chan, but no one is wierder than Mogami Kyoko from this anime/manga skip beat. She was one of my most loved shoujo characters and as expected, the fun was multiplied when Skip Beat was adopted to an anime series.

The plot is quite ordinary, "a tale of revenge", but what separates it from the classics is the reason why and how it will be done. Kyoko decided to enter showbusiness to ruin the rising superstar Fuwa Shou, her read more

At first glance, many thought that American football is all about muscle and killing intent. As a child, I watched NFL games and saw players hurt, injured, worst; crushed, suffer fractures and other accidents that led them to disability. As a sportsman(once a varsity basketball player), I hate games runned by power and skill alone.

Enters Eyeshield 21 that features a with unorthodox players such as shorty, porky and a Demon. The plot is very simple, about an errand boy who became a superstar in a game played by monsters and his team, the Devil Bats journey to National Championships, the Christmas Bowl. It highlights the read more

"Coincidence is nothing but an illusion", such are the words of Yuuko that influenced my life choices since I've watched this CLAMP masterpiece.

Xxxholic is a slice of life anime that showcases several supernatural settings that is in one way or another, very similar to real life situations. It shows how greed brings loss, lies can be fatal and how love andfriendship can save.

The story is about extra-ordinary events in Watanuki's life such as meeting creatures seen from folk and fairy tales and exploring different grounds known only from myth books, while working as a part-timer in a mysterious shop of Ichihara Yuuko, the witch that read more
