I have been staying at home more often lately. Therefore, I have turned to my favorite thing to do at home…watch Netflix . However, Netflix has been disappointing me with it’s streaming movie selection. I guess their new business plan is to provide a slew of TV shows to stream instead of movies. Bleh, this can be good cause I like to watch some TV shows on Netflix like South Park, Scrubs and Breaking Bad. But I originally loved Netflix because of it’s movie selection. It would thoroughly enjoy browsing their selection and setting up my queue.
So I decided to remedy the situation by watching Anime. I used to watch a lot more Anime a few years ago, but I somewhat lost interest. However, I did find a few things to watch and recommend you check them out. P.S, I know they are old…from 2008 or so, but hey…they are new to me 🙂
Darker Than Black:
This is an interesting show. It’s split into 3 short seasons and you can watch it in a short period of time. It’s basically about a new breed of humans that start sprouting out after a strange area pops up in Tokyo and changes the sky. Sounds weird huh? Well it is a bit weird.
The humans with new powers are called Contractors and basically use their powers to kill people they are contracted to do so. The characters are interesting. Each of them has a back story episode and you keep wanting to watch it just to see where the story leads you. There is alot of killing, blood, fighting and drama.
Black Blood Brothers:
BBB is a pretty cool vampire anime. The story revolves around Jiru (an old blood vampire) and his younger brother trying to make their way to the Special Zone. They end up in the middle of a race battle between the Kowloon children (another race of vampires) and humans. There is lots of action, drama, some romance and cool looking anime guys. This is a plus for any girl who likes vampires and anime 🙂 Unfortunately, Netflix only has season one and I want to see more of it. The background stories for most of the characters only begins to unwrap in this season and the battle between the vampire clans and so forth is just beginning as well.
