Anime – Cowboy Bebop [REVIEW] – See You Space Cowboy…

MyAnimeList Rating: 8,81/10
Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy, Drama, Sci-Fi, Space
Studios: Sunrise
Author: Shinichiro Watanabe (Story) Yutaka Nanten (Art) Hajime Yatate (Story)
Seiyuu: Kouichi Yamadera, Aoi Tada, Megumi Hayashibara


Cowboy Bebop is one of the anime that can be regarded as the best science fiction anime in the 90s era. I’ve also been watching this anime for a long time and this anime is very different from many aspects when compared to anime nowadays. We know that nowadays, fans are more interesting in an idol, moe, waifu, harem, and so on that the story in the anime is forgotten. I also really like the things like that but this is one that causes why the anime is best compared to the anime of the 90s. If watching at the present time, Cowboy Bebop loses the sensation of the terms I mentioned earlier but if glanced from various aspects ranging from artwork to storyline, Cowboy Bebop is said to be the best sci-fi anime of 1998.

Spike

“Cowboy Bebop,” tells about Spike Spiegel (Kouchi Yamadera) is a bounty hunter who has an easy going nature but is very reliable in the world of martial arts. Taking a back spot away from the future, Spike Siegel teamed up with Jet Black (Unshou Ishizuka), Faye Valentine (Megumi Hayashibara), and Edward Wong Hau Pepelu Tivrusky IV (Aoi Tada) crossed a galaxy to search for high-priced fugitives every day.

Cowboy Bebop is a masterpiece of Sunrise Studio that tries to produce something different from others series. It might be rather difficult to explain why this anime is so great for reviewers and critics. In fact, even in the international world is always glorified by this masterpiece. First of all, let’s try to think that this is not an anime. Cowboy Bebop is like a series made by a successful American from its novel adaptation. This series is made as if it were watched by adults only, who love the action movie and science fiction. Cowboy Bebop like a Trigun or Black Lagoon that can only be watched by adults only, although for the present is also very difficult to find anime of this kind. If it’s made, it may fail greatly because of the market demand that is off the mark.

Knockin' On Heavens Door

Cowboy Bebop is an image that successfully raised the anime to the international world. That is why outsider more prefer this anime over other anime. As Orson Scott Card says, an American novelist, critic, and public speaker: Cowboy Bebop has turned a perception of what people always say badly about anime. Cowboy Bebop managed to make the anime better than its stereotype as a story that made it a big achievement in the sci-fi genre. Cowboy Bebop is more aimed at the episodic system and focuses more on becoming itself like an American Serial TV that always has a continuous plot from time to time like one of the anime that I have reviewed also titled Monster. Both series have a continuous plot so that many people who are very interested to watch both the series even those who don’t like anime will also like it.

For the size of the Cowboy Bebop series, it can be said to be like the Samurai Champloo series which I have also reviewed. Both series are more focused on a genre of action even though the author seems not to focus on that genre. Both series also sometimes have an unpredictable story ranging from characters to existing stories. Each episode feels random because sometimes we will be made laughing, sometimes we will be made touched, and sometimes we will be amazed of his action. In essence, both series are very difficult to guess. Just like the Monster series, sometimes we are always surprised to be plot-twisty in every episode. Cowboy Bebop has an impressing story that neatly and sensibly enough to be surprised because of this series.

Spike Siegel

One more thing about this series is that although this series is titled “Cowboy” in its title, this series doesn’t focus on the theme of the cowboy. We will be amazed by a very cool space-shaped cowboy. Sounds weird, right? For some people, it may sound strange. Why you have to create a nonsense story like this? Hold on, dude. Cowboy Bebop takes on the feel of exoticism and the culture of outsiders like the Indians living in a desert on Mars, a Red Dragon syndicate who always believes in mystical things, Vicious who relies more on katana in some of his battles, and Spike Siegel who owns Jeet Kune Do. Of course, the sci-fi elements aren’t lost out like a western movie with sophisticated technologies.


Overall, Cowboy Bebop is a masterpiece that everyone should be obliged to watch it. Although this series has been long enough, this series still remains to watch but for you who like it. I was also a bit lazy to watch it when the beginning of the first episode started, but I forced myself to watch it to the end and managed to understand what this series is trying to explain us.

Movie – Arrival [REVIEW] – Why Are They Here?

IMDB Rating: 8,0/10
Genre: Drama, Mystery, Sci-Fi
Director: Denis Villeneuve
Writer: Ted Chiang
Stars: Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, Forest Whitaker


Arrival is a science fiction drama film directed by Denis Villeneuve and has worked on Sicario and Prisoners. In this movie, we will curious about the really interesting story and the best performance from Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner. With a cinematography coupled with a great tense storyline, this movie will probably be very memorable for anyone who watched it.

“Arrival,” tells about the coming of an alien on earth. They drove an airplane in the shape of the arch and landed it at 12 random points, one of them was the United States. Panic, fear, and indecision are present at the same time. A linguist Louis Banks (Amy Adams) and physicist Ian Donnelly (Jeremy Renner), headed by military chief Colonel Weber (Forest Whitaker), communicated with the aliens to find out what the purpose to came on earth.

Amy Adams in Arrival (2016)

Arrival is a science fiction movie that very different from the others. Despite the theme of the aliens, this film will not provide a scene of the battlefield that occurred among the aliens like Independence Day. This film will not tell a space journey like Star Wars, Interstellar, or The Martian. Rather, this movie is a drama movie with a fairly slow storyline and a bit confusing to watch. However, Arrival certainly presents something special for the end of the story. Some of the audience will be made satisfied when watching the end of this movie and will be much to argue about how the story exists.

Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner in Arrival (2016)

This movie presents something interesting though some who don’t understand what this movie wants to convey. Amy Adams is able to maximize her acting in this movie, while Jeremy Renner as we know he plays as Hawkeye in Marvel Universe. The story in this show is a story that will never forget from what we watch. The cinematography is very epic and will make us love this movie.


Overall, Arrival is a film that proves alien-themed films don’t always provide a battle scene that is created in such an effect. However, Arrival is a sci-fi drama that makes the audience in the confused and touched at the same time when watching this.

Anime – Gintama Movie 2: Kanketsu-hen, Yorozuya Yo Eien Nare [REVIEW] – He Doesn’t Have To Fight Alone

MyAnimeList Rating: 9,06/10
Genre: Action, Sci-Fi, Comedy, Historical, Parody, Samurai, Shounen
Studios: Sunrise
Author: Hideaki Sorachi
Seiyuu: Tomokazu Sugita, Rie Kugimiya, Daisuke Sakaguchi


Gintama Movie 2: Kanketsu-hen – Yorozuya yo Eien Nare or Gintama: The Movie: The Final Chapter: Be Forever Yorozuya is the 2nd movie of the Gintama series produced by Studio Sunrise. This movie is also a bit more interesting than the first movie before just for this movie is slightly different from what are Gintama show to us. For this second movie, we will be made laugh out loud, sad, confused, and amazed simultaneously because for Gintama Movie 2 presents a variety action that is very epic but doesn’t forget the usual comedy that Gintama always present.

Gintama 2

“Gintama Movie 2: Kanketsu-hen” will tell about Sakata Gintoki (Tomokazu Sugita) who is thrown into the future. Beginning of the story, Gintoki got a man who pirates a movie in a theater. Then, he somehow suddenly transported into a world where the city of Edo was stricken with an epidemic called “White Plague.” Thrown into 5 years of the future, Shinpachi Shimura (Daisuke Sakaguchi) and Kagura (Rie Kugimiya) work independently because Gintoki in the future has died. By disguise into an unknown person, Gintoki must reunite Yorozuya in order to investigate White Plague and find the key to the gloomy lie of the future.

For the 2nd movie from Gintama, I would say that this movie isn’t wrong that rated high on the internet. In closing of this anime Gintama, this film presents us all the elements that can be spelled out for the size of a movie like this. Sometimes has a funny comedy, a very touching drama, a somewhat elusive story and a very epic action that is very neat and very unusual. Of course, Gintama still presents something a bit original in it.

Silver Gintama

The soundtrack that was performed in this movie is fairly spelled out for anime movie like this. Genjou Destruction by SPYAIR is one of the craziest and epic soundtracks, perfect for this original movie and the battle presented with a bit of humor is perfect. Anime type Shounen is always present a soundtrack that will pump his audience. However, for this anime has very impressive in presenting a soundtrack.

If we compared by his TV series may be lost in animation because we can’t imagine how the movie from Gintama is a bit different from the anime series. The artwork of an action is illustrated in detail, filled colorful when viewed in good quality. The problem that is here only one if for myself that there is no difference from the artwork of characters from the movie to anime series. All look the same when compared. But that’s just my word. The result is very fantastic when viewed whole.


Overall, this movie can be watched by anyone even for those who don’t watch Gintama can also watch it. Gintama always makes us laugh, touched, even amazed at the same time. However, this movie changes our minds if this becomes more epic compared to its anime.

 

Anime – Gintama Movie 1: Shinyaku Benizakura-hen [REVIEW] – Yorozuya Crew Find Themselves In The Midst Of A Major Conspiracy

MyAnimeList Rating: 8,58/10
Genre: Action, Sci-Fi, Comedy, Historical, Parody, Samurai, Shounen
Studios: Sunrise
Author: Hideaki Sorachi
Seiyuu: Tomokazu Sugita, Rie Kugimiya, Akira Ishida


Gintama: The Movie or known it by the name of Gintama: Shin’yaku Benizakura-Hen is a summary of the episode Gintama 58-61, which here tells about the Benizakura Arc. Gintama was produced by Studio Sunrise since 2006 and for this movie will retell how Kotarou Katsura was attacked by the aliens of Kihetai. In this movie too, Warner Bros participated in the making of this movie even though they didn’t confirm about this movie. However, Gintama movie was a great success in 2010 and successfully aired in all theaters from various countries.

Gintoki

“Gintama: Movie 1,” tells about Sakata Gintoki (Tomokazu Sugita) and his idiot friends, Kagura (Rie Kugimiya) and Shinpachi Shimura (Daisuke Sakaguchi) will venture into a futuristic where the aliens still haunt the city of Edo. Kotarou Katsura (Akira Ishida) is disappeared after being attacked by an unknown group of assassins. Shinpachi and Kagura begin their investigation to find Katsura. On the other hand, Gintoki gets a sword named Benizakura who isn’t know who the owner is. This Yorozuya will break a conspiracy from Benizakura’s side and Gintoki will join into a battlefield to enter the enemy headquarters. Together, an epic adventure as well as a comedy that will make us laugh at the beginning.

I will not write much about this movie because this movie is just a summary of this Gintama series. Indeed for Benizakura Arc in the TV Series is not epic like this movie, but the dialogues that exist and action scenario is very fascinating. The portrayal that had initially failed a bit in his TV Series began to improve in this movie. Some background music that supports animation and some altered angel cameras make this movie much different from its series.

Benizakura Arc

But what’s make different about Gintama movie and series? The answer has many differences. Because helped by Warner Bros, Gintama for this movie version has something original of his own. For Gintama fans will feel it much different from the series, because they will realize that this is just a remake of some popular arc. If you just watch this movie but never watch the anime, maybe a bit disappointing for anyone new to Gintama because this anime presents an unusual adventure comedy action.


Overall, this movie can be enjoyed by anyone who wants to watch it especially for fans who really like Naruto, One Piece or other mainstream anime. However, Gintama is not a mainstream anime in my opinion. The story is very easy to understand and presents a very mesmerizing action. The movie is good, but for someone who is unfamiliar with Gintama, it may seem strange to them.

Movie – Inception [REVIEW] – The Dream Is Real

IMDB Rating: 8,8/10
Genre: Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
Director: Christopher Nolan
Writer: Christopher Nolan
Stars: Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page


Christopher Nolan is a director who has a very genius idea through his films. Call it like Memento that makes the audience play his mind because of this movie. If Memento is a film that has a very genius idea, then Inception will also say that. Back in 2010, that year was indeed filled with really cool movies like Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Black Swan, Shutter Island, Despicable Me, and Toy Story 3. That year was filled with a lot of really cool movies, especially Inception that brought its audience with a very different experience compared to other films.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy, Ellen Page, Ken Watanabe, and Dileep Rao in Inception (2010)

“Inception,” tells about a shrewd thief named Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) who always performs his actions in the subconscious of a dream person. Together with his partner Arthur (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), they enter a state of mind when the person is in a dream. This ability is often referred to as extraction. Because of their action, Saito (Ken Watanabe) is amazed because of Cobb’s ability and provide a more tough task that is to instill an idea in a person’s mind or so-called inception.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Ken Watanabe in Inception (2010)

If by just reading the synopsis may be somewhat difficult to understand because this movie does have the essence of a very important story. In this film is also definitely Leonardo DiCaprio role in this movie let alone he plays here as a dream thief. To watch this movie also required a very high concentration level like watching other thriller films like Memento. Inception is a genius film that is strong evidence to crown Christopher Nolan as the most genius director.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Berenger, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Ellen Page, and Ken Watanabe in Inception (2010)

In addition, Nolan is also very meticulous in choosing the actors. Call it like Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, Ken Watanabe, and Tom Hardy. The actors have indeed made the audience amazed by their names. Nothing stands out and nothing is lacking when all the actors play in this movie. All presented so well balanced. Not to mention the special effects that look smooth in it with the soundtrack that makes the audience beat faster.


Overall, although I don’t write much for this movie, you better watch it yourself rather than having to find out what else is in this movie. This is a masterpiece that can be phenomenal, although this movie I also watch twice to be understood. Fans of Christopher Nolan films certainly love this movie, especially for movie fans with a very complicated story in it and the best actors in it.

Anime – Serial Experiments Lain [REVIEW] – Present Day, Present Time!

MyAnimeList Rating: 7,99/10
Genre: Dementia, Drama, Mystery, Psychological, Sci-Fi, Supernatural
Studios: Triangle Staff
Author: Yoshitoshi Abe
Seiyuu: Kaori Shimizu, Yoko Asada, Show Hayami


Of all the anime that I’ve watched, this is the first anime I’ve watched many times to understood what is mean. I also read all of the reviews on blogs as well on YouTube. Previously also, I once discussed what the first impression after watching one or two episodes. This time, I will try to review this anime.

Lain

“Serial Experiments Lain,” tells the story of an introverted teenage girl named Iwakura Lain (Kaori Shimizu) isolated by some of her friends. Wired is a very popular social network of children and adults. One day, there was a case that happened at her school. They all get spam messages that don’t know where they come from. Lain is someone who doesn’t know about computers. Because she told by one of her friends, Lain tried to buy computers that have Wired network. The message was sent by Lain classmate named Yomoda Chisa (Sumi Mutou) who committed suicide before the message was sent. Chisa says that she didn’t die, it’s just that she left her physical body. Chisa said that she has lived in a virtual world that is a reciprocal relationship between the real world and the virtual world. Chisa says that she has found the real God. From here, Lain gets stuck in a series of cases that Chisa is talking about and find out what the real meaning of Wired is.

If looking at the genre, this anime certainly shows a very dark impression, gloomy, difficult to understand, and confused about what just watched. If a movie or anime normally shows a problem to the completion level, then this anime will make a lot of questions into the final episode. I also feel confused until now what is the purpose of this anime. The plot of the story seems very slow but makes the audience to be carried into the hallucinations that exist in this anime. Anime like this is usually named Dementia.

This anime really shows the true meaning and impact of playing in a virtual world or something like people say, The Internet. This anime explains how someone who doesn’t really know the internet world to be someone who always closed himself. When someone is very innocent and very friendly to everyone, then the internet changed her personality to be a very quiet person and always close his heart to others. Iwakura Lain is one of the highly introverted characters. After learning some tech, he became very good in that. Even people call him, Hacker.

Iwakura

For those who do not understand, Dementia is a term used to explain how functional decline is often caused by abnormalities in the brain. Dementia isn’t a disease, but a symptom caused by diseases and disorders of the brain. In the anime, Dementia is practically a genre but there is no Dementia term in the movie. Dementia is an anime genre that has mind-twisting plots, where the plot-twist itself must require highly focused thinking in order to be understood. Dementia is also not an anime genre but can be said to be part of the “Psychological” genre. Examples of Dementia anime in addition to Serial Experiments Lain such as Neon Genesis Evangelion, FLCL, Perfect Blue, Boogiepop Phantom, Yamishibai: Japanese Ghost Stories, and others.

This anime shows how the main character has a two personality. On one side, She Introvert and on the other side, She Extrovert. Another unconscious with herself who always changes her personality. Her friends tell her that she has two sides. However, this anime will explain it to the end but it can lead to perplexed confusion after watching it. This anime mixes the real side and the unreal side. The audience will be difficult to distinguish the real and unreal side of this anime. Therefore, theories and conspiracies are also very much in this anime. The sound of BGM is so bleak that supports the theme and the dark side of this anime. This anime explains something mixed up and coupled with hallucinations and dreams. The audience will be carried into the core of the story.

Hacker


Overall, I don’t know if I should suggest you guys watch this anime or not. What is clear, this anime can make you confused prolonged until the end. You can also be involved by hallucinations and existing reality. However, for those of you who are very fond of this kind of anime genre you can watch it. Not recommended for those of you who don’t really like the anime that has a very complicated story.

Movie – The Martian [REVIEW] – Bring Him Home

IMDB Rating: 8,0/10
Genre: Adventure, Drama, Sci-Fi
Director: Ridley Scott
Writer: Drew Goddard
Stars: Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig


What would happen if you lived on Mars with limited food or no food at all? Maybe, I’ll just give up rather than survive on Mars. But, this film says not. This film shows how a person is harvesting a potato on Mars. Why? It’s very impossible, but this movie will explain it.

Mark

“The Martian,” tells about a team of researchers facing a storm and required to go back to earth immediately. Suddenly, one person was stranded and left for allegedly dead. Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is an astronaut botanist who survived the storm and was forced to survive on Mars with limited inventory.

The main actor of this film is Matt Damon who plays as Mark Watney and directed by Ridley Scott. This film also features some famous actors such as Jessica Chastain, Jeff Daniels, and Sean Bean. Initially, the book is written by Andy Weir who can be downloaded for free on his blog. However, someone asked to make its e-book and can be downloaded on Kindle.

I have never seen the trailer. I also originally heard of this movie from all of my friends. But they also recommended me to watch it. And this movie makes me feel excited with the visual effects and plot. Just like other space movies such as Gravity or Interstellar, this movie makes the audience more amazed and curious about what happens in this movie.

This movie teaches us that if you face some problems, it’s not to escape the problem. In fact, who can escape the problem if he is just a Martian? No one else? If you encounter some problems, don’t escape for whatever the problem is. Quite calm and be patiently is important.

Mars

Initially, I think will cause some bored with this film. However, during the duration of two hours more, this film is very dissatisfied with the duration of it. Ridley Scott is very clever to draw stories from one scene to another. If you really want to find a plot-twist in this movie, then this movie doesn’t present it. The Martian is a film that doesn’t give a special impression but is very interesting to watch.

This film also slipped small comedies inside. Like, Mark always makes videos while living on Mars. He always said some funny jokes. Rotten Tomatoes gave this movie a 93% Tomato rating, while the IMDB rating was 8.0. From rating, you don’t need to hesitate to watch this movie.


Overall, I very recommended watching it. The beauty of visualization on Mars and also how NASA and outer space work is great. Especially, for Gravity movie fans, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Moon, or Interstellar, I recommend this movie.

Serial Experiments Lain [FIRST IMPRESSION]

There’s nothing I can say about this anime. I feel like “What the fuck did I watch?” I still don’t really understand about this anime, what is the purpose, what is the storyline and etc. Just one word for this anime, weird.

“Serial Experiments Lain,” tells the story of a teenage girl named Iwakura Lain who introvert. Then, there was a case that hit all the other students at her school. A spam message sent by another classmate named Chisa Yomoda. The oddity here is that Chisa Yomoda committed suicide before sending that spam messages. So, Lain went home and check that message as well. In the message, it says “The Real God.” Chisa tells to Lain that she has found the real god.

Just watching one episode and makes me confused. I feel like “What the fuck?” What is the problem with this anime? What makes me excited is this anime is a pretty classy year, in 1998. In that year, I was just born. Moreover, anime like this is good as started there in that year. But, this anime also has its own interests that always make the audience curious. Maybe if I’m done watching it, I can conclude this anime plot. Until now, is still hard to understand.

Novel – The Kill Order [REVIEW] – Before WICKED Was Formed

Goodreads Rating: 3,69/5
Author: James Dashner
Genre: Science Fiction, Dystopia, Fantasy, Apocalyptic, Adventure, Action

After into a mild depression because my idol died, I also recently never write another article because I go out-of-town because there is a wedding family event for two days. Sorry if all this time never writes an article again. But this time, I want to try to review a novel that I’ve read for a long time titled, “The Kill Order.”

Thirteen years before Thomas entered Maze, before Thomas with his friends who decided to escape from Maze, it turned out to have a story before them where the solar storm made life on earth changed drastically to be so bad. Mark and Trina and their friends had already experienced an incident where they were hunted by humans who had lost consciousness or in other words, insane. All of this is due to the arrival of a berg or light aircraft which at first is the one who will help them. But, they came not in peace. They instead showered the residents with hundreds of arrows.

Yeah, actually this isn’t a sequel to the series “The Maze Runner.” It coincides precisely before The Maze Runner or prequel.

Actually, why should the arrows? Why not machine guns or other destructive weapons? The virus is not from flares, but from products born before flares are released. Why named flare? Human creator of this virus is too arrogant to recognize a new disease that at first sounds brilliant to be a karma.

Behind the creation of this virus develops and becomes uncontrollable. The title itself also mentions it very clearly, The Kill Order. James Dashner is like making something unrelated to The Maze Runner. I am very disappointed in this book because it gives a lot of questions in my head. I thought, reading this book is solving the puzzle before The Maze Runner is there. But, on the contrary. Despite that, thriller, adventure, and dystopia are not spared from this book.

“The Kill Order” is exactly the same as “The Scorch Trials,” the second series of The Maze Runner. But the mysteries in my own head still can’t answer. I also haven’t read the third series of The Maze Runner. This book is very good although there will be no deep impression.

Anime – Steins;Gate [REVIEW] – The Depths Of Scientific Theory And Practicality

MyAnimeList Rating: 9,16/10
Genre: Sci-Fi, Thriller
Studios: White Fox
Author: Chiyomaru Shikura
Seiyuu: Mamoru Miyano, Asami Imai, Kana Hanazawa


Maybe this is the best anime in the world after “Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood”. Why? Because this anime has a very complicated story, a very epic dialogue, a plot-twist ending, and a very supportive seiyuu. Due to the very high rating, I will try to review this anime. By the way, this is my favorite anime. Also, I usually rewatched how many times because it getting boring.

“Steins;Gate,” tells about a professor named Okabe Rintarou (Mamoru Miyano) along with his best friend, Hashida Itaru (Tomokazu Seki) and his childhood friend, Shiina Mayuri (Kana Hanazawa). Inadvertently discovered a technology that can send messages through the past. Makise Kurisu (Asami Imai) is the same professor as Okabe Rintarou, not believing what she saw because she was mysteriously killed and returned to life because of Okabe Rintarou. Simultaneously, they learned that The European Organization for Nuclear Research (SERN or in real life called CERN) was in the process of developing a time machine. From this, Okabe and his friends fought with SERN in creating the time machine.

Okarin

“Steins;Gate” has an impression of a very slow plot. For people who are very unfamiliar with this anime will not be able to survive watching this anime. In episode 4-6, you probably will not understand the plot. But, you must be patient because maybe you will be very interested to watch it considering it’s has a very high rating. Starting from episode 13, you will instantly get carried away due to its fast-growing plot, many explanations about a time machine, time shift, dystopia, and things to be explained very well. This is what makes this anime very interesting because the thriller side is very shocking and gripping. Perhaps, for those of you who love physics, I recommend this anime.

“Steins;Gate” has a very interesting visual because of it’s very abstract, simple, and very simple graphics supporting the thriller and mystery genre of this anime. I don’t know according to the people, but after reading the comments and reviews they judge the visual because it’s very simple and not very interesting portrayal. For me, the graphic is very interesting. But, back from the perception of the people who watch it.

Okabe Makise

Although this is an anime fiction and thriller, there’s some comedy that will make you laugh. How not, Okarin, a mad genius scientist who has a chuunibyou (called “eighth-grader syndrome” in English) character or often fantasizes as a crazy professor makes Okarin very unique as the main protagonist. Mayuri who has a very childish but always help Okarin, Daru as a hacker and friend of Okarin, Kurisu who have the nature tsundere (a person who is initially cold and even hostile towards another person before gradually showing a warmer side over time), and much more side-by-side characters.

Suzuha

Mamoru Miyano, the voice of Okabe Rintarou character is a very genius in filling a voice in this character, remember in the anime, he always says “El Psy Congro” a slang to end the sentence while calling. Hana Kanazawa, who filled the voice of Shiina Mayuri had a similar slang like Okarin “~Tut Tu Ruu~” a slang for a ‘hello’ replacement when meeting his friend and saying it in a very cute tone. They are both my favorite seiyuu.


Overall, if you are a fan of sci-fi story, you might be interested to watch this anime. But, as I said, you have to be really patient and focused when watching this anime because few of you will be really fooled and don’t understand the story.
