Norse God anyone?

Next up, is the anime Matantei Loki Ragnarok (Mythical Detective Loki). This is the type of anime that also has some history as its background. The characters are based on Norse Mythology with their corresponding characters.

The story begins when the Trickster God Loki was thrown to earth in the body of a child. He, with his pal Yamino (his true identity will reveal later in the series) runs the Enjaku Detective agency. The agency investigates paranormal events and of course kills the evil spirits.

The storyline is not the typical anime story you encounter everyday. The references to the Norse Mythology gives you something to learn although after some research I have proven that not everything are exactly the same as their mythological counterparts. Though the story kept me on my feet coz its not easy to guess what would happen next, that’s a good thing right? The only disadvantage to this is that if you are not aware of Norse Mythology or if Gods and Goddesses aren’t your thing, it wont be easy for you to relate or understand. (my brother tried to watch it and he wasnt able to finish, he said it makes his nose bleed. x3)

The Gods’ powers are cool though I like the Goddess Freya’s power to make steel basins fall from the sky (>.<). She tends to show this power when her brother Freyr is around. Thor’s mojllini really exudes his strength and the Heimdall’s hawks are really scary. But I looovvveee Loki’s staff! Its a staff the shape of a crescent moon and his special skills are cool too..

The characters are all eye candy. From Freyr to the goddess Freya, the goddesses of Fate to the Ningen detective Mayura. The kid Loki who can make any woman regardless of age giggle because of his cuteness to the grown up God Loki who can make any woman lose their panties. See what I mean?

All in all, its a great anime. Even the songs included on the series are really good.
I give this 4 out of 5 stars. Those who like the supernatural and paranormal, go ahead and explore the world of the Norse Gods.
