or what ever else we can find

Kurenai

Kurenai

Kurenai is about the adventures and misadventures of 16-year-old Kurenai Shinkurou. Shinkurou is an authority in settling disputes between people, and finds his life turned upside down one day when he is assigned as a bodyguard for Kuhouin Murasaki, the daughter of a powerful plutocratic family.

when I finished watching it, the show filed into my “pretty good, but not great” category in my head. There were a couple of nitpicks here and there (like the confusing first episode), and the ending actually felt a little too “After school Special” to me when all the action was done.

i really cant explain this one … i have some many griefs about it this series will go up on the shelf to just collect the dust and cobwebs. the writer seemed to to be very rushed and nothing is really explained through out the series check it out, however, do it at your own risk. this is one i didn’t like and its rare for me to say so.

Shion no Oh

Shion’s King
しおんの王
episodes: 22
Genres: drama, mystery, tournament

Shion no Ou tells the story of Yasuoka Shion, an 13-year-old girl gone mute after a traumatic event where an unknown man murdered her parents, yet left her alive some Eight years ago. She was then adopted by a neighboring family, where her new father was a professional shogi player. Finding solace in the game, her skills were cultivated to a frightening degree in this environment, and as the show begins Shion is nearing the end of a tournament held to qualify the winner as a professional female player.

Shion no Ou is an anime about shougi, the Japanese form of chess. The rules are quite complicated, but you don’t need to be able understand them if you want to enjoy this series. What’s much more important for Shion no Ou is the general strategies, and the mind-games that get played between the two players. And let me say that the story and characters are nothing short of incredible. The heroine, Shion, is one of the strongest female characters I’ve ever seen. Every single character is well-defined and developed. Every single episode pushes the plot forwards, without any exceptions.

Great animes usually have one or two aspects that turn out very polished, like a cast of terrific characters, or an engaging storyline, but the outstanding anime really deliver in every single department. Shion no Ou has it all: terrific storytelling, a great storyline, a cast of deep and amazing characters (both the villains, main and side-characters) that really comes to life
