    Kazuma is a contractor of The Wind Spirit Lord and was abandoned by the Kannagi family after losing to Ayano during the successor ceremony for Enraiha. He returned to Japan three years later as the most powerful user of wind & Fū-jutsu. His family is ashamed of him for learning wind magic instead of fire magic (which is traditional to his family), although he is still quite powerful. They even decided to banish him out of the family because of it. He’s mostly seen as either an hero or antagonist & only works for money. If Kazuma is very mad, his eyes change from orange to a crimson red. Additionally, when he is in a state of extreme rage, he goes into his “Black Wind” form, which gives him extra power, but he usually can’t control it. Later in the series, he reveals that ultimately Black Wind is pathetic. Kazuma is also very calm & sarcastic too, which is a plus, as it adds to his charm & egoist personality. Most of the time he is searching to become more and more powerful when he is not in the middle of a fight. Before he was banished out of his family, he was a kinder and sweeter person, but quickly became bitter after the dramatic change of events.

    Misaki is a gorgeous 16 year old girl whose very strong-willed & confident. She’s also the main female lead of the series. She is the 1st female student council president at Seika High and is known as the Demon President by the boys, due to her tough and strict behavior. She secretly works as a maid part-time at Maid Latte until a super gorgeous guy named Usui Takumi discovers this & thus prompting the funny but cute relationship between the two. He even has her work for him as a maid, which is the compromise for him not telling anybody about her job. The reason for her desperately wanting to keep her maid job as a secret is because she doesn’t anybody at her school think of her in a real feminine way and she might lose her job as the student council president.

  • Character of the Week: Seras Victoria

    Seras Victoria

    Seras Victoria

    Anime: Hellsing Ultimate

    Age: 19 years old, 49 yrs. postskip

    Gender: Female

    Race: Vampire

    Alias: Police girl, Draculina, Mignonette, Ms. Victoria, Hellsing’s new trump card, Kitten

    Affiliation: Hellsing Organization

    Previous Affiliation: London Metropolitan Police

    Ability: Firearms Specialist, Clairvoyance, Regeneration, Immorality, Invulnerability, Advanced Combat

    Seras is one of two main female protagonists of the Hellsing series. She was turned into a vampire by Alucard, who saved her from a gunshot wound in the chest. Seras is a cute girl with blonde hair and blue eyes (which turns red when she’s mad). She’s since seen wearing the Hellsing uniform until she drinks Pip Bernadotte’s blood, which her outfit changes into different shades of red and her eyes are now red.

    Seras personality can be best described as strong-willed. She’s a very brave & heroic female who reacts on her beliefs. She often rejects following her master orders that she doesn’t agrees with. Even so, she’s a loyal soldier who follows orders from her commander and completes tasks given to her.

    Seras Victoria

    Seras is introduced in the series as a police officer when her squad was sent to Cheddar Village to investigate a priest that was responsible for multiple homicides. The priest was disguised as a vampire and took control of the town and turned its inhabitants into Ghouls. The vampire then took Seras hostage and threatened to murder & rape her. Alucard arrives and the vampire used her as a shield to convince him into letting him live. Alucard didn’t listen and shot both Seras and the vampire killing him, while leaving her on the verge of death. Alucard then asks her if she wanted to become a vampire and live or die as a human. She chooses to live, which results in Alucard biting her, changing her into a vampire. She is then immediately employed with the Hellsing Organization and her journey as a vampire begins.

    Seras is an amazing gunmen, but she’s also well-trained in hand-to-hand combat, which is shown when she use brute force against the FREAK zombies. She uses all types of techniques such as karate chops and kicks and also finger flicks shown early against Pip. She has superhuman strength, speed, agility and more.

    Seras Victoria

    Seras primary weapon is the Hellsing ARMS Anti-Midian Cannon Harkonnen, a single shot breech loader cannon. It weighs 120 lbs. and is excellent for long range targets. It can use all types of shells including depleting uranium with silver and more. Before she got this, she had a smaller rifle that shoots 13.7 mm rounds.

    While defending the Hellsing headquarters, Seras acquires the Harkonnen II. It weighs 345kg and has a pair of 30mm auto cannons that’s belt-fed from two large ammunition boxes. Yes, she carries it on her back like a boss. This was use to destroy Millennium’s missiles that Zorin tried to use from their blimp.

    Seras Victoria

    Seras is my character of the week because she’s amazing and freaking awesome. She’s kicks major butt and is super sweet & intelligent. She’s a bit tomboyish, but that just adds to her charm. She’s a sweet girl, but when she’s pissed off, she more deadlier as shown during her fight against Zorin (glad she killed him or her). Seras is one of the nicest and funniest person on Hellsing. When she’s confused it’s super funny and when the guys flirt with her,  she’s tells on them. I’m glad she drank Pip’s blood because they were close & they each understood one another on the police or military base (I don’t know how to describe it).  She had feelings for Pip so I think that’s why she also bit him. For those who don’t Pip, he’s the guy with the braided ponytail & commander of the army who was assigned to Sir Integra when her original army was killed. Anyway, I love Seras cause she’s strong and beautiful. She fights her own battle and helps her squad. She gotten use to the vampire life even though she was nervous & didn’t know what was going on at first. Seras stayed true to herself and for that she grew, overcame her dark past, and looks forward to an amazing future.

    Hometown: Littner Village, Jeeha
    Base of Operation: Dai-Gurren
    Ability: Firearms Specialist

     

    Biography

    Yoko Littner

    Yoko is the main female protagonist of Gurren Lagann. She has long red hair, in which she keeps in a ponytail and carries her trusty, long range, sniper rifle on her back. She’s first introduced into the anime as she was chasing the Gunmen who crashed into Jeeha. Since then, she’s been with Simon & Kamina in fighting other Gunmen.

    Yoko is a very mature person who is very kind and caring and also knowledgeable. She can be extremely aggressive as shown numerous times with Kamina. She’s very good at fighting and is very confident in her skills. She likes to think things over before charging straight into battles and cares deeply for her friends and teammates.

    Yoko is first introduced in the anime when Simon and Kamina attempts to defeat the Gunmen who showed up at their home and helps them defeat him despite Kamina’s ego. She decides to join them and provides them with backup fire and support. Later into the series, she reveals her feelings to Kamina and they both embrace one another and share a kiss. Kamina is soon killed and she’s devastated, but continues to fight. Later on during the Anti-Spiral War arc, Yoko helps establish Kamina City but decides to leave for a small island in which she becomes a teacher named Yomako. She later hears about Simon’s trial and gets upset. Then, while the island is evacuated, two Beastmen attack and hold a little girl hostage. She defeats the Beastmen all while teaching her class that violence and stealing is wrong. She decides to help Simon and tells Kittan of her plan to save him.

    Yoko is a very skilled marksman. She can shoot her rifle at an enemy weak spot and defeat two Gunmen without being injured and by herself. The best moment of marksman she’s shown is when she piloted Gurren Lagann and nearly hit Viral. She also an extremely skilled gunmen pilot who took out many Anti-Spiral ships alone and piloted Gurren Lagann & Dayakkaiser. Her gun skills are amazing, thus making it difficult for her to get injured because she’s that good at handling  her rifle.

    Yoko Littner

    Yoko is my character of the week because she’s awesome. She doesn’t depend on others to fight for her and can stand up for herself. She gets along with everyone in the Dai-Gurren crew and cares for them. I totally ship her with Kamina cause they are so awesome and cute together heehee. Anyway, Yoko is a strong, pride woman who doesn’t need to showoff her fighting skills cause its immediately displayed in the anime. I love the fact she doesn’t wear clothes and wears cute outfits because clothes are hard to move in, so I can understand her choice of clothing. Yoko is just so awesome and I think is highly underrated, so she is my character of the week. See ya✌


  • Character of the Month: Shūkurō Tsukishima

    Shūkurō Tsukishima

    Anime: Bleach

    Shūkurō Tsukishima
    Age: looks to be in late 20s
    Birthday: February 4th
    Gender: Male
    Race: Soul
    Affiliation: Kūgo Ginjō
    Previous Affiliation: Xcution
    Base of Operation: Naruki City, Japan
    Fullbring: Book of the End

     

    Biography

    Shūkurō Tsukishima

    Tsukishima is a former member of the group, Xcution. Xcution is a group of Fullbring users (I’ll explain later). He has brown eyes and black wavy hair that’s to his shoulders. He also has a visible scar on the left side of his face… above his eye due to a wound he got as a child. His attire is sort of nerd like; he wears a long sleeved collar shirt and black pants with suspenders. He is seen having and reading a book. He has a bookmark too, in which his Fullbring is sealed in.

    Tsukishima personality can be best described as cold. He rarely smiles and show emotion. He is very calm and collected as shown, but in reality, he is not. In battles, he is very cautious and composed. He is also sadistic due to his Fullbring power (I’ll explain this later too). He pushes his victims to the point of having a mental breakdown and without helping, watches them suffer. Not only that but, he’s extremely devoted to Kūgo. Kūgo is the first Substitute Shinigami who taught him how to survive, but not what to do in case he were to die. This is best shown when Ichigo, the current Substitute Shinigami who defeated Kūgo. Tsukishima was extremely upset and tried to kill Ichigo, but Riruka intervened so he cried in anguish.

    Tsukishima met Kūgo after he was seen alone and told him from that day on, he would come with him. This is how he was taught to survive: how to use his power and of course how to fight. Later on, they meet more Fullbringers and thus Xcution was formed. The members consist of Riruka, Yukio, Jackie and Giriko. Chad and Ichigo then joined seventeen months later. In Kūgo’s view, Tsukishima had gathered several different people’s Fullbring abilities in order to find a way to erase their powers. He formed a plan to pass their powers onto a Substitute Shinigami forming Xcution. Once the process begins, he had a change of heart and killed the Substitute Shinigami and others who were relieved of their powers. Tsukishima goal is to keep Ichigo away from them. This whole story is a complete lie created by his Fullbring in order to deceive Ichigo and take his Fullbring power so Kūgo can share it with the other Fullbringers.

     

    What is Fullbring?

    Shūkurō Tsukishima

    Before I discuss Tsukishima’s fighting abilities and Fullbring, I’m going to explain what a Fullbring is. Fullbringers are spiritually-aware born humans with the ability to use Fullbring. This allows them to manipulate souls that reside in all physical matter. The power resembles closely to a Hollow than a Shinigami. Each Fullbringer had a parent who survived a Hollow attack and traces of that Hollow power remained in their mothers’ bodies, so at birth, that power is passed onto them. Fullbring is a ability that enables them to manipulate the souls contained within matter. This power can be realized at any age; meaning it varies. So for example, you can be 10 when you discover your Fullbring ability. Lastly, they use their physical bodies due to extensive training. They build their stamina so they can use their power better. When a Fullbringer dies, all traces of their abilities disappears from the world, but they do carry their abilities into the afterlife.

    Tsukishima is very skilled in swordfighting. He can battle Ichigo and Kūgo without using his Fullbring. He also has tremendous speed in which he can strike an opponent before they can react. He also has excellent endurance in which he can still attack while being severely injured. He has superb durability, which means he can get kicked across two football fields and still not suffer any serious injuries. Additionally, he has a great amount of spiritual awareness.

    Book of the End is Tsukishima’s Fullbring ability. It’s a katana that has a bookmark shaped tsuba and is sealed in his bookmark. This is pretty cool if you ask me, because you can just pull out your bookmark and BOOM there’s your sword. Anyway, the sword itself can cut through anything and is capable of two types of cuts. One cut can injure or kill an opponent, as shown when Uryu Ishida was injured by his sword. The other cut allows him to insert himself into a person’s past. This cut was used more than the first cut. He’s capable of doing both simultaneously too.

    Insert Presence: This is the ability to split the past of whoever it cuts.
    The victims of this see Tsukishima as someone close to them such as a friend, relative or lover. This is best shown with Ichigo friends and sisters. They viewed Tsukishima as a friend who has always been there for them, while his sister viewed him as a family member. Tsukishima gains knowledge of their memories and can modify their past. However, the downfall of this ability is if a victim realizes that their past is inconsistent with reality, then they are at risk of having a mental breakdown. The bonus of this ability however, is it can be reversed if a victim is cut again or if Tsukishima dies they return back to normal.

    Shūkurō Tsukishima

    I chose Tsukishima as my character of the month because he’s cool. He doesn’t judge anyone and is carefree. I would say that his sneak attacks are coward moves. He’s good at fighting so there really isn’t a need for it… well, unless he wants the upper hand then by all means sneak attack as much as he like. Also, when he pops up out of nowhere it’s sort of creepy. I don’t remember which episode, but when he suddenly appeared on Orihime’s porch reading a book… like dude where you come from? He is cool and cocky just a bit… naw he’s cocky. The only thing I don’t like about him is that he’s shown as boring. What I mean by this is he appears, talk smack, cut and leaves… like dude can you do something else? This gives me the feeling that he is boring, but he’s still cool because he can fight and his Fullbring is nice.


  • Character of the Month: Sōsuke Aizen

    Sōsuke Aizen

    3602879-aizen__s_draw_by_klnothincomin

    Name: Sōsuke Aizen
    Anime/Manga: Bleach
    Age: looks to be in late 20s to early 30s
    Birthday: May 29th
    Race: Soul
    Affiliation: Arrancar Army
    Previous Affiliation: Gotei 13 Soul Society
    Previous Division: 5th division captain and 5th division lieutenant
    Base of Operation: Las Noches, Hueco Mundo
    Zanpakuto: Kyoka Suigetsu

    Aizen is the former captain of Gotei 13’s 5th division, leader of the Arrancar Army who was defeated by substitute soul reaper, Ichigo Kurosaki but was sealed away by Kisuke Urahara and is currently serving 20,000 years in Muken. Muken is a underground prison where the worst criminals in the Soul Society are held. He is one of many antagonist characters in the Bleach series. Aizen is a handsome guy who looks to be in his late 20s to early 30s who at first was well-respected. He was very known in the Soul Society for his teachings as a calligraphy teacher but is now known as a traitor due to his invasion of the Soul Society. As former captain, we first see Aizen in square shaped glasses with short brown hair and brown eyes. When he leaves the Soul Society, he changes his appearance. He now has his hair swept back with one stand in front of his face and the glasses are gone so now his brown eyes are more visible.

    Since leaving Gotei 13, his personality is very arrogant and cocky. Even though he’s that way, he still is soft-spoken and addresses everyone by their given name. He rarely shows any distress and often has every situation he’s been in figured out. When confronted, Aizen is extremely casual and make small talk. While in the Soul Society, he was kind that Momo Hinamori and others looked up to him a lot. He cared for his underlings and was respected. This however isn’t his true nature whatsoever. His true nature is highly manipulative and dangerous. He doesn’t care for his underlings at all and is willing to use everyone as a pawn to achieve his goal. He toys with his underlings and will stop at nothing to further his ambitions and will kill anyone if needed to fulfill it. As leader of the Arrancars, he controls his army through fear or respect. As for Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez, a member of his elite group the Espada, he controls him by intimidation and mind games. Since gaining new powers, Urahara has noted that he’s become less cautious in battle in which he admits that he has let his guard since having new powers with the Hygōku. Aizen’s attitude has changed too in which now he’s even more arrogant and overconfident. He’s also gets very anger when he doesn’t understand something. A example of this is when Ichigo transforms into Mugetsu Getsuga Tenshō (the final getsuga tenshō). He was extremely pissed because he couldn’t figure out how Ichigo has surpassed him.

    In the beginning, Aizen was the lieutenant of the 5th division under Shinji Hirako, the leader of the Vizards. While under his wing, Aizen invested in the research and creation of the Hygōku before Kisuke. He sacrificed hundreds of shinigami & Rukongai citizens to his own Hygōku but it wasn’t satisfied. After Urahara is appointed as new captain of the 12th division, he and Shinji were talking and Shinji reveals Aizen who concealed himself in camouflage. He was inpressed and complimented Shinji and asked when did he sense him there. Shinji responded in a rude way that he known him ever since he was in his mother’s womb and ordered him to follow him. Aizen replied with a comment on how scary he was but Shinji says he’s the scary one. Later on, Aizen witnesses Gin killing 3rd seat member of his division. Aizen is once again impressed and asked how did he find the fight. Gin with a simple and one word response says pathetic. Years later, Aizen & Shinji are walking around the Seireitei when they encounter Urahara, Hiyori (another Vizard member) and 12th division 3rd seat Mayuri Kurotsuchi. Aizen asks Kisuke has he heard the news about the series of strange deaths that has been in the Rokongai. Urahara didn’t know so Shinji tells him about it and says that the 9th division squad had been sent to investigate. Soon the 9th division disappears and head captain Yamamoto calls for an emergency meeting. He forms a team to investigate and they arrive on scene to see that all members of the 9th division hollowified and is soon dispatched by an unseen assailant. The attacker is later revealed as Kaname Tosen. He is 5th seat member of the 9th division and the only one who survived. Soon Shinji arrives and is injured and asks Tosen why in which he replied Aizen. Aizen then reveals to Shinji that he’s been the one behind him for the past month. He explains his zanpakuto (I’ll explain later) and tells Shinji that their lack of trust allowed him to fool him. Shinji gets upset and the hollowification process speeds up. Aizen then thanks him and prepares to kill him but Kisuke intervened and cuts off Aizen’s lieutenant badge.

    Aizen is by far the smartest guy on Bleach due to his genius intellect. He knows the Soul Society strategies, history, tactics and the existence of the Oken. He even know how to create both a Oken and Hygōku. He has created Arrancars and hollows all while avoiding any suspicion from his fellow shingami. Aizen has been doing experiments that has involved dangerous manipulations of Reishi and hollowification for 110 years. The man even knows how to destroy the Hygōku. He’s a master at manipulation and strategic methods. Not only that, but he’s also a master at Kido too and shunpo since he’s extremely fast.

    Aizen’s zanpakuto is called Kyoka Suigestu. It looks like a normal katana when sealed away but when it’s released, the sword itself has two sides parallel to the blade. They are long while the four sides above and below the blade are shortened making almost a diamond or prism-like shape. The handle is green. To activate his zanpakuto, he uses the word shatter. The motion is almost similar to Byakuya’s shiki release of Senbonzakura. The special ability of his zanpakuto is Kanzen Saimin. The ability is a hypnosis technique that controls all five senses. The technique is so flawless that the intended target misinterpret another’s form, shape, mass, feel and smell. It only takes one look at his zanpakuto and the person is completely succumb to hypnosis. It’s long lasting too that even the Vizards are still affected by his zanpakuto from 110 years ago. When he puts his sword away or turns it off, the image melts away or shatters.

    Hygōku Implantion Transformations

    imagades
    Aizen has the Hygōku embedded in the center of his chest. He takes 5 forms since he is now fused with the Hygōku. The 1st stage really isn’t anything major at the moment. He has gained a new power known as protective regeneration and strength & durability augmentation.

    In stage 2, Aizen appearance changes to a phantom-like figure and face is completely covered with a white canvas. He now has enhanced durability, speed, strength, endurance, spiritual power and regeneration. This form is known as Chrysalis.

    In stage 3, his appearance changes again in which the phantom-like form sheds into a form similar to his original one. His hair is now long and his eyes are gray with purple sclera. Now his spiritual power and durability has enhanced even more.

    In stage four, Aizen now has a hole in the center of his chest with a cross. He has now a form fitting robe that’s white and flares out at the end. His irises, eyebrows and his one strand of hair that was in front of his face vanishes. Also there’s now a diamond shaped object in his forehead. Lastly, he gain three sets of butterfly-like wings that becomes pointed when he fights Ichigo. He also now is even faster regeneration, enhanced strength and teleportation.

    In the final stage, he has a hollow-like form. The diamond-shaped points breaks revealing a black vertical third eye. The skin on his face splits open down the middle and pulls back revealing a blackened demon-like skull. He has three holes vertically down his chest and the Hygōku stands in the center of the top hole. His feet are claws and hands and feet blackens. The wings are now in a set of six sheet-like with hollow heads at the end and eyes in the center. In this form, he uses two techniques against Ichigo…
    Fragor: a bluish-purple energy sphere that comes from the hollow-like skulls at the top of his wings
    Ultrafragor: a bluish-purple circle of spiritual energy that surrounds the target

    228036-sosuke_aizen
    I choose Aizen as my character of the week because he’s the baddest antagonist I’ve see. At first, I didn’t like Aizen at all because he was such a jerk. Then watching him more in action my view changed. He is extremely smart and is very calm. This makes me mad because he didn’t get upset when he was confronted and carry on long conversation. Well actually, his long speeches does have good points but come on end it already. He talks too much but he does back his words up so that makes him even more greater. The fusion with the Hygōku had gotten to Aizen head and thus is the reason he lost. He depended on the power of the Hygōku too much and got way too cocky. He still remain himself even while begin restrain to hear his sentence. He made a comical remark that made his sentence of 18,600 years to go to 20,000 years. I hope to see a return of Aizen in the manga. He is immortal so he should at least show up and if he doesn’t…that’s so not cool to kill him out the series by sending him to Muken. Lastly, the glasses he wore didn’t help his appearance at all but once they came off and the hair swept back, his sexiness explodes. See ya next month for a new character pick
