Manga/Anime has become a new norm in American pop culture, and it will apparently continue its popularity. Anime is one of the most versatile/unique media available and focuses on all types of genres from action, comedy, sci-fi, thriller, romance, etc. As new generations learn more about this Japanese art form, anime will likely continue to become more entrenched in the mainstream.

Below is a list of some of the best anime shows to watch – for avid fans, as well as those new to anime.

Hunter x Hunter (2011)

Episodes: 148

Director: Hiroshi Kojina

Manga Artist (Creator): Yoshihiro Togashi

A world filled with professional hunters who perform tasks in the uncharted territories of the world to find rare items and monsters that can lead to dangerous quests. Gon Freecss, a young boy who wishes to become a hunter in order to meet his father (who was a legendary hunter), embarks on many adventures and meets new friends and relations along the way.

Hunter X Hunter is an extremely enjoyable series from start to finish. All of the story arcs are engaging and beautifully executed. The characters are one of the main factors that make this story so enjoyable.

Gon, Kurapika, Leorio, Killua, Hisoka, and others make the series a must-watch and have some interesting traits and backgrounds. The show also excels at strategy, as Togashi provides characters with innovative ways to defeat their opponents. Yoshihiro Togashi directed what is considered his most famous project. While the anime is over, the manga will continue while Togashi is hard at work wrapping up the story.

Spy x Family (2022)
Episodes: 12-?

Director: Kazuhiro Furuhashi
Manga Artist (Creator): Tatsuya Endo

A spy, an assassin and a telepath, all in one family. Loid Forger, otherwise known as “Twilight”, is an undercover spy who must create a family for a secret mission that will help save the world from Donovan Desmond, a secret chairman of a party that controls wars. Along the way, Loid adopts Anya, a telepath who can read minds, and later meets Yor, an assassin who is given the code name “Thorn Princess”.

As the show will continue into fall 2022, throughout its first 12 aired episodes, Spy x Family is a relaxing and intriguing plot from the start. It explores various genres including comedy, romance, action, which lead to potential classic anime. What makes this show so intriguing is that the three main cast members have their own individual goals of having this fake family, which neither of them knows about the other. The show helps develop all three characters, especially Loid and Yor, and presents other life lessons for each on how to be a guardian/parent. This show has incredible potential and should excite anime viewers in the coming months when it returns.

Toradora! (2008)

Episodes: 25

Director: Tatsuyuki Nagai
Manga Artist (Creator): Yuyuko Takemiya

Ryuuji Takasu, is a 16-year-old high school student in Japan. During his last school years, he wishes to confess his feelings to Minori Kushieda, a very articulate girl who is Ryuuji’s crush. He later meets Taiga Aisaka, a girl who has a crush on Yusaku Kitamura, Ryuuji’s best friend, only to later find out that she is also Minori’s best friend. They work together to find ways to confess their feelings to each other’s best friends while supporting each other on their issues throughout their college careers.

As someone who doesn’t like romantic comedies, learning about this series piqued my interest and I’m glad for it. As each episode unfolds, the viewer becomes more curious about how the relationships between all the characters develop, especially with Ryuuji and Taiga’s antics. The characters are unique and bring something new to the table. I think what makes this show so successful is that it doesn’t do what cliched romantic comedies do. This show is considered one of the best examples of romcom anime, and it deserves to be in this category.

Death Note (2006)

Episodes: 37

Director: Tetsuro Araki

Manga Artist (Creator): Tsugumi Ohba

In a world full of crime, something has to be done, and the question is: what is justice? Light Yagami is a high school student who is first in his class and finds a notebook that fell from the sky. He takes it, discovering that the one whose name is written in the book will die in 40 seconds. Light seeks to use this power to become “the God of the New World” by executing criminals and stopping wars to end all evil.

My first anime, which I consider to be the easiest to make if you want to embark on the adventure of the Japanese genre, is recognized as one of the greatest anime of all time. Death threat excels in its psychological and mental games. The protagonist and antagonist turn out to be the smartest people on the show, and they both find ways to outdo each other to expose their identities. It also challenges the idea of ​​justice and how far should people go to end atrocious acts in society. It perpetuates the idea that justice is created by the strong or the victorious. If Light wins against the authorities, then he is accepted as righteous. If Light loses, we think he’s bad. An extremely interesting show that I recommend even to non-animated viewers.

Attack on Titan (2013)
Episodes: 87-?
Director: Tetsurō Araki and Masashi Koizuka
Manga Artist (Creator): Hajime Isayama

In a world full of titans, humans are confined by 100+ foot walls surrounding them. Titans have been around for 100 years and eat humans for pleasure, not hunger. Humans are on the brink of extinction as they try to defend themselves when the titans invade. Eren Yeager wishes to fight against the titans after having kidnapped his mother when he was a child. He wishes to expand the human race and get out of the walls to have his absolute freedom, as his friends Mikasa and Armin join him in his quest to join the military to fight back. As the story progresses, there is more than meets the eye.

Possibly my favorite anime show of all time, The attack of the Titans perfectly executes its story, world building, characters, visuals and much more. The attack of the Titans always has the viewer on the edge of their seat and is truly suspenseful – its storylines and storylines are superb. This story also evokes the idea of ​​freedom, what it means to have self-esteem, and when all hope seems lost, to always fight for what you believe in.

The attack of the Titans will end next year in the winter of 2023, as the manga has already ended.

Japanese Anime Meets Egyptian Mythology In These 4 Shows

The occult world of Egyptian mythology has inspired creators around the world for decades, from one of Marvel’s latest series ‘Moon Knight’ (2022) to Gerad Butler’s 2016 film ‘Gods of Egypt’. There is an array of references and inspirations drawn from ancient Egypt in media around the world. Inspiration from Egyptian mythology was not limited to Western media; anime (Japanese animated series) also drew inspiration from it, and characters from various series and stories encounter Egyptian gods and mythical characters.

One of the most unique storytelling mediums, anime offers an immersive viewing experience as it relies as much on its animation style as it does on the script to tell its tale. It’s a Japanese art form, with a ‘distinctive narrative and visual aesthetic‘ – its lightning-fast action, fascinating characters and unconventional storytelling appeal to many people. Many Egyptians are familiar with anime, from Captain Maged’s acrobatic football tricks to Sabek w Lahek’s energy rush (“The Racing Brothers”, “Let’s and Go”; 1999).

Here are four Japanese anime shows where Egyptian mythology meets anime — and ancient Egyptian myths and legends come to life.

Yu Gi Oh!

Photo credit: CBR

Egypt plays a big role in the Japanese mega-series “Yu-Gi-Oh!” (1998). There are various references to ancient Egypt, including the ghost of an Egyptian pharaoh named Atem. The connection between the pharaoh and the main character, Yugi Mutou, unfolds through a series of events, where Yugi Mutou possesses an ancient Egyptian relic called the “Millenium Puzzle”. Yugi’s rival, Seto Kaiba, is named in honor of Adjust, the evil brother of Osiris and the god of the desert. There are also references to the Egyptian goddess Isis, which inspired one of the characters’ names, Ishizu Ishtar.

Dragon Ball: Super

Photo credit: CBR

In ‘Dragon Ball’ (2013), the series follows twin brothers Beerus and Champa, who are both gods of destruction and are inspired by Egyptian mythology, as they engage in feuds and rivalries. They are often likened to Anubis, the jackal-headed god, worshiped as the god of the dead. They are also compared to Sekhmet, the lion-headed goddess of vengeance and divine retribution. Their feline heads seem to be inspired by a balance between the two gods.

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusader

In ‘Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders’ (2014), the main characters meet the High Priestess and the Nine Egyptian Gods of Glory, nine characters inspired by Egyptian gods. The Nine Gods of Glory, based on Geb, Thoth, Khnum, Anubis, Bastet, Sethan, Osiris, Horus, and Atum of ancient Egypt, act as the antagonists, who are called upon to find and fight the crusader in the series , the protagonists, who emerged on the banks of the Nile.

Kamigami No Asobi

Kamigami No Asobi (“Play of Gods”, 2014) is a novel-turned-animated series about an average schoolgirl who finds herself sent to another dimension where she is confronted by gods from different cultures. Through a series of events, she is responsible for teaching love to the various gods. The series not only features Anubis and Thoth from Egyptian mythology, but also delves into characters from Greek, Japanese and Norse mythology.

‘Inu-oh’ review: A psychedelic Japanese animated rock opera https://mazingerz-world.com/inu-oh-review-a-psychedelic-japanese-animated-rock-opera/ Thu, 11 Aug 2022 07:00:00 +0000 https://mazingerz-world.com/inu-oh-review-a-psychedelic-japanese-animated-rock-opera/ The ghost that haunts the eccentric Japanese rock opera “Inu-oh” isn’t the friendliest of creatures – not at first, anyway.

The ghost that haunts the eccentric Japanese rock opera “Inu-oh” isn’t the friendliest of creatures – not at first, anyway. Like most of the hallucinatory sights and transporting sounds in this anime feature, Inu-oh, as he is known, tends to shapeshift according to director Masaaki Yuasa’s whims. A former Noh dancer born under very mysterious circumstances, he bursts into frame on spindly human legs, an overgrown extendable arm bobbing behind him like a kite. Two oddly positioned eyes peer out from behind a gourd-shaped mask that conceals a face so terrifying it’s a wonder it doesn’t turn unhappy onlookers to stone.

Inu-oh, inspired by a real-life performer of the same name (and voiced by Queen Bee singer and songwriter Avu-chan), here takes on the misshapen form of a classic anime grotesque. But it also serves as a lesson to those it frightens, reminding them that specialness is not an inherent cause of suspicion or fear. “Inu-oh” offers its own welcome demonstration of this principle. A rich and unstable alloy of history, legend, musical pageantry and cinematic psychedelia, it builds a case for an art that expands the mind and shakes complacency in a world that often prefers the opposite.

While that world bears a huge resemblance to our own, it’s also the politically divided Japan of the 14th century against which “Inu-oh” is set. One of the concerns of Yuasa’s film is how conflict and tragedy are inscribed in folklore, and the specific role artists play in recording, distorting, forgetting and sometimes rescuing the story. Even as a war rages between the imperial courts in the north and south of the land, whispered memories linger of the Heike samurai clan, annihilated by their enemies, the Genji, in a furious battle at sea some 200 years later. early. (Their conflict was immortalized in the 12th century epic “The Tale of the Heike”; the film was adapted by Akiko Nogi from Hideo Furukawa’s more recently published novel, “Tales of the Heike: The Inu-Oh Chapters” .)

A scene from the movie “Inu-oh”.

(GKIDS)

While the sunken Heike ships are regularly plundered by gold diggers, their real buried treasure, the film insists, lies in their wealth of untold and soon forgotten stories. The challenge of uncovering and telling these stories falls to Tomona (Mirai Moriyama), a traveling biwa player who grew up near this aquatic battleground, and Inu-oh, the unsightly outcast he crosses paths with. Years earlier, Tomona was blinded in a childhood accident, a tragedy that soon turns out to be fate. Unable to see – or be frightened by – Inu-oh’s face, Tomona joins forces with this strange, dancing demon. Together, they forge an unlikely musical alliance that will propel them onto the hottest outdoor stages in the country.

Against the backdrop of a relatively stuffy, strictly government-regulated musical tradition, Inu-oh and Tomona’s debut performance has the galvanizing effect of Bob Dylan going electric. In the most inspired shot of the film, the music festivals of Muromachi period Japan are transformed into their own rock scene, with glamorous androgynous musicians, head-banging crowds and, at one point, a magnificent projection of a giant, fiery whale. In its long mid-section, the film essentially turns into a concert film in which the performers unleash a series of banger ballads, each track telling a story about fallen Heike warriors, often set to a shaken beat of we-will- rock you. (Music is attributed to experimental musician Otomo Yoshihide.)

(GKIDS)

All this bold and heady arena-rock anachronism makes intuitive sense. Still, as a story about narration, “Inu-oh” can tend toward the diffuse. The busy, sometimes confusing plot rushes through a jumble of eruptive imagery, some of it dazzling up to the minute, others done in a more primitive, inky style. This isn’t the first time that Yuasa, one of the most free-style filmmakers working in Japanese animation, has used a wide range of visual styles to tell a story, as he did in his feature debut. 2004 feature, “Mind Game”. (His other fantasy-themed feature films include 2019’s charming surfer romance “Ride Your Wave.”)

But there’s a meaning to the filmmaker’s madness, and it’s not hard to understand. Inu-oh and Tomona’s friendship poses a threat to the ruling and warring Imperial order, their creativity granting them power that dictators can restrain but never wield themselves. And with each wildly applauded performance, Inu-oh’s countenance changes noticeably; he appears less demonically wacky and increasingly human, as if by restoring the Heike clans’ humanity he was also forging his own. It’s an effective metaphor for the transformative nature of art in a film that demands to be seen and heard, no less than the anguished and restless spirits it can barely contain.

‘Inu-oh’

Evaluation: PG-13, for violent and bloody images, and suggestive material

Operating time: 1 hour 38 minutes

“If you don’t take the job seriously, you will die.” Mappa & Shueisha has released a third official trailer for an anime series titled Chainsaw Man, premiering in October in Japan and streaming on Crunchyroll in the US sometime later in 2022. Seems like the kind of anime that would come from the mind of Sam Raimi or straight out of the Evil Dead universe. , But it is far from being the case. Following a betrayal, a young man named Denji gone to the dead is reborn as a powerful devil-human hybrid after merging with his pet demon and is soon enlisted in an organization dedicated to hunting “devils”. It is adapted from the manga of Tatsuki Fujimoto. Denji eventually joins the Public Safety Devil Hunters, a government agency focused on fighting demons whenever they become a threat to the world. With the voices of Kikunosuke Toya like Denji, Tomori Kusunoki like Makima, Shogo Sakata like Aki Hayakawa, and Fairouz Ai like Power. Seems like it’s completely off the rails – some highly R-rated horror anime are splattered with blood galore. Set it on fire.

Here is the official trailer (+ poster) of the Mappa & Shueisha series Chainsaw Mandirectly from Youtube:

JEDDAH – Japan’s Ambassador to Saudi Arabia Iwai Fumio was amazed by the size of Jeddah Season’s “bustling village” during his visit to the area on Monday.

Speaking to Saudi Gazette, the ambassador said, “I’m very impressed with the size of Anime Village, and it reflects Saudis’ interest in anime and Japanese culture, and I hope we we’ll see more exchanges between countries.”

The Ambassador was briefed during his visit to Jeddah Season city promenade area about the most important world events and experiences.

Fumio, who has served as the Kingdom’s ambassador since December 2020, pointed out that the promising tourism, cultural, historical and civilizational potentials make the Kingdom a global tourist destination.

He expressed his happiness with the Japanese shows featured as part of the season’s activities.

“I’m only staying one night in Jeddah, I won’t be able to enjoy performances by Japanese artists, but I imagine this season offers many opportunities to experience Japanese culture through these concerts,” he said. added.

He praised Jeddah Season for its careful geographical distribution of event venues and its commitment to ensuring that the events held are suitable for people of all ages.

Saudi interest in Japanese anime started since the 80s, with the dubbing of many popular anime shows and broadcast on TV channels.

So some Japanese anime was more popular here than in Japan, like UFO Robot Grendizer, which was extremely popular in the Arab world but not so much in Japan.

Saudi Arabia’s interest in Japanese anime dates back to the 1980s, when many popular anime episodes were dubbed and aired on television.

Many of them, like Hayao Miyazaki’s Future Boy Conan (also known as “Adnan & Lena”) and Captain Tusuba (“Captain Majed”), have become part of Saudi pop culture.

The rise of new dubbing houses in the late 1990s and early 2000s increased anime’s influence in the region.

Arabs have become more interested in watching subtitled anime on the internet, especially long-running weekly episodes like Detective Conan and Naruto Shippuden.

The community has grown bigger than ever with the advent of social media platforms and the presence of anime reviewing YouTubers such as Ai Show, Planet B-612, Maher Mosly, and Filmmer.

Additionally, streaming services that cater to these audiences, such as Netflix, have also attracted interest from Audis. They dubbed some of Hayao Miyazaki’s movies, such as Kiki Deliver Service, and brought back old anime with its original dubs, such as Princess Sarah and Crunchyroll.

The best-known anime-based streaming service, MBC’s Shahid, has provided many current anime as well as old favorites to Saudi Arabia and the Arab world in general.
