Anime: Lovely Complex

Hey Everyone,

I'm back with another Anime review. I've just finished watching Lovely Complex.

Summary from
Risa Koizumi, taller than the average girl, and Atsushi Ootani, shorter than the average guy - their constant bickering and comical love-hate relationship is well-known throughout the school. They act similarly and love the same music, and their friendship is full of laughing, shouting at each other, and of course, lots of jokes about one another's height. But when Risa notices her feelings for Ootani growing, she's worried. She doesn't know if he can ever see her as more than a friend. With her friends rooting for her, she struggles to make him see how she feels about him, and that a romantic relationship between a tall girl and a short guy can work. Oblivious Ootani doesn't make things easy for her, but she stubbornly perseveres in her own unconventional way, determined for her feelings to get through to him, and finally be returned. If only she could do it without driving herself and everyone else crazy in the process...

Review: This a funny 24 ep long romantic comedy! And when I say funny, I reallly mean ABSOLUTELY HILARIOUS!!!! Risa and Otani are one of the MOST INTERESTING couples I've ever seen. But their feelings are real and very endearing. Their relationship is so sweet. You can't help but fall in love with them yourself and their group of friends who all have their own personalities and problems. This a cute anime that has it all! Most definetely give it a try.

There's also a live movie, which is also very good by the same title. Give that a shot too, while you're at it! Teppei plays Otani in the live movie...He's SOOO ADORABLE!!!! Look!

Looney Express awards Lovely Complex a 4.7/5!

Level 26: Dark Origins by Anthony Zuiker

Hiya World,

It's been a while, but I haven't died yet!
Today's a book review. Before I even start, let me just get it out there:


Alright now that's out of the way, here's the blurb:

Unlock a new level of fear.

It is well known among law enforcement personnel that murderers can be categorized on a scale of twenty-five levels of evil, from the naive opportunists starting out at Level 1 to the organized, premeditated torture-murderers who inhabit Level 25.
What almost no one knows - except for the elite unnamed investigations group assigned to hunt down the world's most dangerous killers, a group of men and women accounted for in no official ledger, headed by the brilliant but reluctant operative Steve Dark - is that a new category of killer is in the process of being defined.
Only one man belongs to this group. His targets: Anyone. His methods: Unlimited. His alias: Sqweegel. His classification: Level 26

Alright, reading this book is like nothing else that you're ever read. It is an experience. You don't simply read this novel, you live it! You fear for the victims, an you're scary shitless by the killer. Every 20 pages or so of the novel, provides with a code that you put in at This unlocks a video clip that enhances the reading experience. The clips enable you to witness the characters fears, and the monster's thought process!

Sweegel is the CREEPIEST, STRANGEST criminal I've ever seen! He's unlike anything you've ever seen before and that' combined with Zuiker's writing style makes this novel extremely captivating. I read all 400 pages in ONE NIGHT! There was no way I could put down the book until I knew whether or not a certain someone lives, or if Sweegal is caught and how! But this book is only the first book in a series, so there's  an INSANE cliff-hanger at the end! I don't know how I'm going to wait for book 2! I CAN NOT WAIT!!!

By the way, Did I mention that Level 26 is a MUST READ!!!! I did? Well, it's worth mentioning over and over. IT'S A MUST READ!!!!!

Looney Express awards Anthony Zuiker's Level 26: Dark Origins a rare 5/5!!!! YAY? Most Definitely YAY!!!!
