Anime: Amnesia

Anime: Amnesia

Those who watch anime regularly are used to seeing characters gleefully declaring their eagerness to fight. Competitiveness is both the bread and butter of shounen titles, but the convention of rivalry and the desire to get in there and mix it up is now commonly seen throughout anime, regardless of the target market. Here I offer just three examples of the “Bring it on!” poses that I saw this week.

Anime: Chihayafuru

The first two screen shots are people getting serious about their games and were used for comedic effect, in Amnesia Ikki challenges Ken to a game of sudoku, in the second image, Chihaya has aspirations for her card-playing club. Our final example is a bit more serious, as Captain Genda is still healing from a previous mission, in which he used his own body to shield a work of art from gunfire.
