Liam's First Look at Myriad Colors Phantom World!

Myriad Colors Phantom World is perfect for those who love fantasy in a modern setting.

Haruhiko Ichijo and Mai Kawakami are not like the average high school students at Haseo Academy. They are some of the few living people with the ability to fight the Phantoms.

Haruhiko, a klutzy bookworm, has the power to trap Phantoms in his drawings. His teammate Mai is very athletic and is able to beat them into submission. Due to their spontaneous attitudes and lack of planning, they are the worst rated team in the Phantom Hunting Club. To make up for their sometimes destructive behavior, they have to defeat even more Phantoms than the other club members.

Though many aspects of this show feel a bit typical, it definitely has an irregular enough scenario to pique my interest for the first episode. One of the first scenes you see is that Haruhiko’s bedroom is pixelated until he wakes up. Then a ripple travels up the walls and he is suddenly inside a library at his house. The idea of reality being shaped to people’s perceptions reminded me of a completely unrelated horror movie titled In the Mouth of Madness which is a film I enjoyed.

What do you think of this new series produced by Kyoto Animation? Do you like the idea of perception literally shaping the physical world?

Next time, I think  we will take a first look at Aokana: Four Rythym Across the Blue or Active Raid, so keep your eyes out for those.

Old new, bad good, I have just been hungry for content. So much so, that apparently it has entered my subconscious.

Liam's thoughts on Erased Anime Episode 1

January 07, 2016

I just finished the first episode of Aniplex’s Erased and I have to say I may be hooked!

Satoru Fujinuma is a struggling pizza delivery boy and manga artist haunted by childhood guilt. Initially painted as a bit of a shut in, the main character goes through a somewhat literal transformation in the first episode.

The show begins by following Satoru on a seemingly average day. Though there was a murder, no less than two lives were saved!
