Traveling Daru

Today we are going to look at my March’s 2017 Anime to watch. If you stumbled upon this blog just now, welcome! And don’t worry no major spoilers will be in this post.

Natsume Yuujinchou

Natsume is an orphan, who sees spirits. This is a secret his has been painfully keeping since he lost his parents. He then moves to a new home, with new family relatives. In the progress of the show, we find out why he sees these spirits and whole world other than our own. This anime has plenty of episodes to soothe some of the dry spells we sometimes get.

In Crunchyroll, start with the one that has 39 episodes, then move to the one that has 13 & so forth. I really enjoyed this anime for the diversity of characters and personalities. Another highlight was the growth that our protagonist endured throughout very difficult times. And without a doubt, the vast world of the paranormal sealed the deal! The scenes are well drawn as well. One thing I wish this anime would have done a better job at would have been plot and character development. There were just too many unanswered questions. If you liked Mushishi, this is the next show to watch.

Traveling Daru:

This anime is a short ten-minute movie. Bear with me as I try to explain to you why you need to watch this gorgeously done piece of heaven on Earth. If you don’t believe in cute you will after you watch this! The sound and the animation are spectacular – not much dialogue happens, but the story and the artistic elements totally make up for it. So much so, I ended up with a big hole in my stomach in the end, and yes, I cried. But, I cry for just about everything.

The synopsis: Daru, a cherished handmade stuffed toy gets separated from its owner but is determined to find her once again. He travels the globe in search for her owner, however, as time passes by the little girl starts forgetting about Daru.

Shingeki no Bahamut: Genesis

This anime tells the story of a group of unlikely heroes who find themselves caught in the middle of an epic clash between gods and demons. Favaro is a laid back, selfish protagonist who is a bounty hunter. His friend and rival Kaisar is completely the opposite and along the ride, we start learning that even though Favaro seems to have life figured out, it’s far from it. His relationships with Kaisar and a mysterious girl named Amira take him on a journey of self-discovery and battles against the Gods.

I’ve been a sucker for anime that have awesome Opening Themes. And this is one of them. Aside from the cool, rock song that makes you pumped, I’d say this is a pretty good anime to fill in the gaps of the week. The animation is well done. I personally feel like the story could have been a little bit more drawn out but you know how it is with anime nowadays. We see dragons, bounty hunters, in a seemingly medieval era full of mystical creatures.
