Updated HYD review and this anime needs to keep its anonymity

The audience has reached parts of Africa and South America! It's time for a Weekend Update, right? It's been too long and I wasted this week on edu...
It's been a moderately [dreadful] week. Morning classes - riskiest business ever. I have maths in the morning, so 3-5 hours after I wake and step off the bus, I'm taking a test which I "devoutly" studied for. Karma's a bitch, cuz I lost at least 11 points for blank answer slots.

Anyway, tonight's reviews are Kampfer, an anime which might have had a manga, and Hana Yori Dango, the jdrama. A reread of the manga and maybe the anime would serve as motivation to touch onto 90s anime territory. 

12 Episodes
Gender Swapping

Pray for this anime series which was a fallout disaster. 

A boy can transform into a big-breasted female equivalent, a teddy bear with his intestines visible, an ending that jumped double the M.C 's life span as the viewer knew it. The flawless animation couldn't put guns, weapons, or hentai faces up to par for the overall fragility of this twig tower. 

From the pilot, it is very clear that the anime had jarred up some ideas, but fails to be consistent or even entertaining. Even if the anime was "not to be taken seriously," like some noted series that I can't seem to find, no one is to be grasping attention or even recognition. 

Extremely one-dimensional characters (Natsuru is truly a girl lost in a boy's body)... better off as a mini hentai series, I swear.

So, maybe Maki's enrollment at the prestigious academy is questionable and out of the blue for this adaptation, but there is no denial to the romantic awkwardness (equals chemistry) between Maki and the heir to the Domyouji corporation. Japanese puns and guy teasing girl everywhere, HYD is going to have been seen by anybody and everybody all least 14 years of age. 

True love has never been so affectionate.

- I started Ben et Thomas, but I'm struggling to translate French to English, but it's obvious whats going on... tryna get a French series in by February!
-I Love Lucy, Misfits, Orange is the New Black, Grey's Anatomy? 

I only review by the season and completed seasons or series only. Mangas- I'm a drifter. Anime- ambiguous activity

Complain, comment, or PM me :) It's been a better start two weeks ago, but life- it's all downhill from here, unfortunately. 

Asia, esp Southeastern Asia is struggling to uphold its integration of Western culture and suicide bombers everywhere in the news. find some aphorisms to live by.
