:::Tsundere Spotlight:::

This TSL goes to Aria from Hidan no Aria!

With the infamous Rie Kugimiya as voice actress (Seiyuu) and Junji Majima (who's also Ryuuji from Toradora!) as voice actor (for the male lead, Kinji), this anime kicks it off this season while hi-lighting Aria as another glorious addition to the tsundere Rie family ^^.

Some background: The anime is about a school for training students to be special agents called Butei. Their classes consist of half-normal-school curriculum and half-CIA-type-training. So basically Aria meets Kinji and, after he goes all 『ありあをまもる』 "I'm protecting you [Aria]" in an action scene she decides that she wants him on her team. She says "Join my party!" which reminded me of an RPG game =P.

So it's a typical boy-meets-girl... or is it? There's a twist with both of the characters that is left very mysterious. What is Kinji's "hysteria mode" that he always tries to keep secret?--and who is Aria searching for and why does she think it's Kinji?

Anyway so It's very interesting and I suggest you give it a try if you like Action + Rie Kugimiya :).

Onto Aria's review! :)

Aria's weapons of choice are two guns and two katanas, making "Aria the Quadra" a very unique addition to the Rie family :)

She most closely resembles Shana from Shakugan no Shana, in both tsundere type and general appearance. (If you don't know who Shana is, she's another Rie tsundere who's tsundere type is polar-by-episode as opposed to a change over time. In other words her tsuntsun and deredere sides are found in every episode instead of slowly turning deredere as the story progresses).

So what will happen as the S Rank Assault-Section, Kanzaki H. Aria, tries to pair up with the E Rank Kinji? Is Kinji truly that unskilled? Or is he hiding something that he wants to forget?--could he be another Kamijou Touma (Toaru Majutsu no Index), or is he another first-season Yuuji (Shakugan no Shana)? You'll have to watch Hidan no Aria (Aria the Scarlet Ammo) to find out! >:)

It's time for some snapshots! :)

So don't forget to make this tsundere smile by catching her in Hidan no Aria! :)

That's all for today, stay tuned for next time!! :)

Thanks for reading! ^^,

And of course, a parting picture ;)

Welcome to
The Otaku Reviewers

This blog, "The Otaku Reviewers", was started in February of 2010 on this very same platform, Blogger. At first, it was a venture into the informational and informal world of comics, anime, video games, and Japanese culture. In other words, just a random blog.

Over time, the founder of the blog credited with the pseudonym "RPGhero" was joined by two fellow bloggers and friends with the names "Chansu" and "Deretsun". Together the three bloggers looked up interesting Japanese culture facts, recommended new anime, talked about their own "otaku" interests, and traveled across the United States to various anime conventions.

There have been off periods when the blog ceased production of content and there have been times when there would be dozens of blog posts per week. The schedule varies depending on the lives of the people behind the alias'. However the pattern is that we always get back into the game with even newer information about Japanese culture, anime, video games, and other nerdy hobbies.

The motto of our blog is:
"A cure for your apathy and an inspiration for your dreams. ...Applies to Otaku, anime fans, J-pop junkies, and the like"

The purpose is to blog about cool stuff related solely to anime and otaku stuff. There's no other reason we're doing this.

If you like our blog, please support us in however small a way that you would like. We appreciate our readers!
