10 Anime- Mononoke

10 anime I’ve never seen, but are on a ‘top ten anime you should see before you die’ list, looked good and now I am watching them.

For those curious what they are here's a link to the list I'm using: LINK

Man that’s a long name for my first ever segment on this world! But I do think this is a good place for a review site to start! As I watch these anime I shall be posting who would like it, who wouldn’t, and my opinions on them!
My personal rules for these are 1.) I must finish the anime (every last episode!) before I can post! 2.) I must give no spoilers 3.) I must watch them in a timely manor! No more than 30 days between posts! If I post on the 1st of the month I have to post again by the 30th! 4.) If I break a rule I must make a wallpaper for every person that's commented on any post in this series of posts. (Luckily I’m not expecting many commenters! ^-^)

Wow got a lot more comments on the last one than I thought… So thank you for that!



Short backstory! This is not Princess Mononoke this is Mononoke the tv series!

So Mononoke… where to start… If I only had only a handful of words to describe it, I would say that it’s “creepy, colorful and beautiful.” It falls into the genre of horror/supernatural and I would argue also mystery.
And this is heavy stuff guys… Not gonna lie, this series tackles some things, now mind you its still a fun watch, and I really enjoyed it, but there are some moments to it that can get rather dark. (and I may disagree with some of its opinions and found episode 2 hard to watch)

Now that that is out of the way, what is this series about? Well, Mononoke follows a nameless medicine seller (just an ordinary medicine seller) and his adventures fighting Mononoke, which are spirits with “regret,” “form,” and “truth.” The series is 12 episodes long and is very episodic. In other words, the series consists of 4 stories with the only common character being the medicine salesman. I know this sounds a bit odd but trust its really quite good! Each story arch is well formed and just the right amount of freaky and elegance.
I really truly enjoyed it!

The art in this series is very unique and very textured. The bright colors and gritty textures really give the anime a nice feel. And the contrast between dark subject matter and horror to the bright vivid colors is really fun and interesting!

The story is engaging and left me wanting more! My favorite story in the series is probably the one where the medicine man ends up participating in a contest to win the hand of a rich heiress to the art of making perfume. The ark work and use of color is particularly awesome in this story arch and I just looooove the ending!

Ok who would like this?
Any horror fan. You like a good freaky series? Give this a try!
Supernatural genre enthusiasts shouldn’t be left out either! If you’re like me and just can’t resist demon/ghost/mononoke goodness this is absolutely one you must watch!

If you don’t like weird you might skip this one…
Also if a bit of gore bothers you… This series is hardly a Hellsing as far as blood and guts but there are one or two shock images.
Also this is a mature series, not super mature or anything, I would say a hard PG-13, but some of the ideas it speaks about requires a certain understanding. ^-^ Still fun tho!

Ok so today’s trailer is actually a really great fan made trailer by Lothriel on youtube. I feel the need to say that this trailer is great and Lothriel is awesome for posting it!

Thank you for your views and comments!

If this trailer doesn't make you want to watch this I don't know what will! XD
