Blade of the Phantom Master: Shin Angyo Onshi Review

History
Blade of the Phantom Master was originally produced as a manga and manhwa series in 2001. It was released in South Korea and Japan Sinamhaengeosa Shin Angyo Onshi. The series was adapted into an animated feature film in 2004 in a rare collaboration between Japan and South Korea called Phantom Master: Dark Hero of the Empire in ruins.

The Gist
There was a time when the Angyo Onshi or “Amen Osa” – Guardians of the people – were abundant and traveled the country of Jushin, killing the evil schemes and keeping residents safe. But now, all Angyo Onshi have disappeared, except one. Jushin has been destroyed. And he is back with a vengeance.

The Review
Blade of the Phantom Master is the story of Ulsan, an “Amen” Osa “(” Angyo Onshi “in the Japanese version) – the last of a secret army created by the King of Jushin to protect the earth and its inhabitants.

Unfortunately, the army failed and fell Jushin, now devastated by the zombies, creatures and evil tyrants. Amid the collapse of Jushin, Ulsan falls into a state of unconsciousness and hovers between life and death. When retrieving, the King (also the best friend of Ulsan) is dead and Jushin is a mess. Ulsan essentially roams the earth in search of Aji Tae, the man he believes is responsible for the destruction of Jushin and the death of his friend.

There are, of course, a few plot twists in this story and although I’m not going to give everything, I’ll tell you Ulsan perhaps not exactly what he thought it was and no more than Jushin fell initially revealed.

But what really makes the Phantom Master sheet so exciting is the level of action throughout the film. Ulsan is a Mahaia “in third place, which means you take the medallion has three horses and therefore carries some pretty amazing powers. The result is some very intense battles, including shootings, beheadings and even encounters with cannibalistic devil. It’s blood, is horrible and is definitely not for the Kiddos but if you want an anime that is “in-your-face, Blade of the Phantom Master is final.

What is Anime?

Anime is actually a shortened version of the word “animation” and refers to Japanese animation clearly unique. Anime originated in 1963 when a man named Osamu Tezuka was the first Japanese animated series, a real success story known as “Testuwan Atom, also known as” Atom Boy “. Testuwan was a big fan of the popular Western cartoons, particularly those produced by Disney.

today’s anime has made strides in terms of arguments and animation techniques. Think of the old Popeye cartoons and then compare them with a more modern Parent or Kim Possible and you get the idea.

Like any other type of visual entertainment, anime has its own set of genres, demographics and yes, even grades. Unlike American cartoons, anime is not strictly for young children. Quite the contrary, there is a subset anime entirely dedicated strictly to older viewers (18 +) and at all levels of maturity in the middle.

Anime also shows some cultural differences. For example, casual nudity is accepted in Japan, so that shows rated for adolescents could include some content that American parents would feel was slightly suggestive.

Another distinguishing difference between anime and American cartoons are one’s own arguments. Because American cartoons are aimed at young children, their plots are relatively simple and usually tell the story from start to finish in 30 minutes or less. Anime on the other hand, deals with more complex patterns often extend over many episodes in history. There are some exceptions to this, of course – Case Closed is a wonderful anime a young prodigy with keen detective skills. The case is resolved in each episode however, remains a mystery underlying permanent still applies from one episode to another when not busy doing the local police seem idiotic.

You’ll find animes that ghosts to deal with death, murder, romance, and even a demon girl offered to do your will through its own website (see Hell Girl). Eventually, most animes do ultimately support the “good over evil” ideal, however, do not be surprised if some of the good to get dust on the road.

Anime has a number of distinctive features of bizarre hairstyles with the cliché “large eyes of his characters. Curiously, however, anime has become a huge hit with Western audiences that many U.S. producers are now entertaining anime influenced by works.

So how do you know which animes are right for you? Easy! Try them! Take a look at some of his favorite genres to other forms of entertainment – for example, if you’re a big fan of Stephen King, you may want to try some supernatural anime shows to get your feet wet. Similarly, if you love a good action movie, an action anime like Dragon Ball Z or Naruto might be just what you want.

Top 10 The Best Anime

Wow … a decade is almost over. And what a decade it has been! We have seen a variety of new anime in the last ten years … some good, some bad and others it was absolutely amazing! So, which anime titles we flew in the 2000s? Here’s my top picks from the list.

1. Naruto
Based on the manga by Masashi Kishimoto, Naruto is the story of a young ninja, motivated to learn that he is actually a vessel of a dark and evil force, the demon of nine tails Fox This evil entity was captured by a leader the village when Naruto was just a baby. The leader was the devil to Naruto baby and then died – people from the village Naruto blame for this loss. Naruto embarks on a quest of self-discovery, hoping to become the leader of the people next door, called Hokage. Naruto debuted in Japan in 2002 and again in the U.S. in 2005 through the Cartoon Network Toonami programming.

2. Bleach
Based on the shonen manga series written by Tite Kubo, Bleach is the story of Ichigo Kurosaki, a young man who accidentally acquires the powers of a shinigami. Like the more familiar “Grim Reaper”, a shinigami must help the souls to the afterlife, but they have other responsibilities as well – which should protect humans from evil spirits. The anime began airing in Japan in 2004. VIZ Media acquired the rights in North America and brought Bleach for the states in 2006 on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim programming block.

3. Afro Samurai
With the voices of Samuel L. Jackson, Afro Samurai is based on the graphic novel by Takashi Okazaki and tells the story of a lone samurai who wants a little revenge for the death of his father. For this vengeance, of course, must travel the land, making friends and enemies along the way. Jackson co-produced the series and is without a doubt one of the best releases of anime you’ll find in this decade. Distributed by FUNimation, the series premiered on Spike TV in 2006 and hit DVD shelves in 2007.

4. Death Note
Based on the manga by writer Tsugumi Ohba and artist Takeshi Obata, Death Note is the story of a young student who finds a mystical book that gives the power over life and death.

But it’s not long before the infamous detective L decides to track down the vigilantes. Death Note was released in Japan in 2006 and lasted 37 episodes. It debuted on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim in late 2007.

5. Black Lagoon: The Second Dam
Black Lagoon: The Dam The second is the ongoing story of the Lagoon Company, a group of mercenaries piracy and adventure trip on the road. This anime series is definitely a freaky and creepy collection so be careful: this is not for the faint of heart. That said, is one of my favorites and has a knack for making you want “more.” Since “freaky” is not an official genre, may classify this as a psychological action thriller. Black Lagoon: The Second Dam debuted in the U.S. in 2008 after a career in Japan in 2006.

6. Hellsing
Hellsing is the story of a vigilante group of vampires – the Hellsing Organization – and his target, Millennium, a mysterious Nazi organization that specializes in creating artificial vampires. Created by Gonzo and rReleased in Japan in 2001, Hellsing did not hit the U.S. until much later – 2006.

7. Fullmetal Alchemist
Released in Japan in 2003 and then in the U.S. the end of 2004, Fullmetal Alchemist is based on the manga by Hiromu Arakawa the same name and ran for 51 episodes.The story of two brothers – Edward and Alphonse Elric – Fullmetal Alchemist leads us into a fantastic science fiction where the journey is reached learn all about the principles of alchemy and see first hand what happens when you do not obey.

8. Mushi Shi
Although there is a kind of edge of your seat story, Mushi-Shi Anime makes my list because the Decade of the stories are so original and most importantly, the animation is quite lovely Unlike most sample of anime, Mushi-Shi not exactly have a plot underway with the caveat that our Ginko narrator is a drifter who can see the mushi “- supernatural entities – and moves around trying to minimize the havoc they cause in the human world. But beyond that a bit constant, each episode is a stand-alone story, with beginning and end, something I find refreshing in the midst of so many stories that continue for 200 + episodes.

9. Gungrave
This supernatural thriller is adapted from a video game Gungrave and debuted in Japan in 2003. It was acquired by Geneon Entertainment and was part of the release agreement with FUNimation 2008. The story of Brandon Heat and his life after avenging death, Gungrave is creepy, bloody impressive and, therefore, rated “M” for mature audiences.

10. Darker than Black
This press post-apocalyptic debuted in Japan in 2007 and then click each state through the end of 2008 DVD. The story of a futuristic Earth where, apart from an odd address “distortions” in the atmosphere, there is also a new breed of human called contractors. These contractors have a number of different powers and abilities and the like used for a variety of reasons, some good and others as well .. not so good. The series was created by Tensai Okamura and produced by Studio Bones – in an interesting note, unlike most anime titles, the manga was not created until after the anime.
