Michiko & Hatchin

Plot: A wanted woman escapes from prison and picks up an abused orphan girl named Hana, who is supposedly her daughter. (Interesting starting point -- B)

Characters: Fairly well explored, but not all that endearing (B-)

Art & Animation: A-

Voice Acting: A

Music: B

Objectionable Content: Profanity, blood, sexual innuendo/situations

Other: The story starts off with promise, but then takes some wrong turns. It's also not a light watch at all. (I'm taking off points here, because I stopped watching fairly quickly.)

Overall Score: C

Recommendation: 1/5

Medabots

Plot: Small AI robots called Medabots are all the rage, especially among kids. Ikki Tenryou is desperate to have one (though he can't afford it), and when he finds a discarded medal (essentially the Medabot's "soul"), he rushes to his local store and buys a cheap, outdated model named Metabee. There's just one problem -- this particular Medabot has a serious attitude problem! How will Ikki ever be able to control it well enough to get to the World Robattle tournament? (Another tournament anime with some interesting plot twists --C+)

Characters: Substance and variety -- A-

Art & Animation: C+

Voice Acting: C

Music: B-

Objectionable Content: Mild

Other: Starts out pretty light-hearted and has some really off-base gags and villains. Later on, more serious elements come into play. The second season switches out some of the voice actors, which I really disliked. There was also some really weird stuff going on, even though it had one or two good plot points.

I read a little bit of the comic, but the art was really bad, and it was hard to follow.

Overall Score: C+

Recommendation: 2.5/5

Horimiya

Plot: Hori and Miyamura act completely different outside of school than they do in school. When the two stumble onto each other's secrets, they hit it off and become friends. (Nothing super-special -- B-)

Characters: This is where the fun is. (A)

Art: B+

Objectionable Content: Profanity, suggestive material

Other: Starts off as an enjoyable slice-of-life romance/comedy, but disappoints as it shifts into full-on romance mode.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 2.5/5

External Image

One Piece

Plot: Following in the footsteps of his hero, Monkey D. Luffy sets out to put together a crew and be king of the pirates! (Not great, not bad -- B-)

Characters: Good character development -- A-

Art & Animation: Good animation, but don't like the art style -- C

Voice Acting: C

Music: C

Objectionable Content: The 4Kids edited version didn't have much -- this is the only version I've seen.

Other: I could never get over the art, and other things that I disliked built up until I eventually stopped watching. I have only read bits of the manga.

Overall Score: C

Recommendation: 2/5

Inu x Boku SS

Plot: Maison de Ayakashi is a place for people descended from mythological creatures. The socially-challenged Ririchiyou Shirakiin moves there in hopes of bettering herself, and a mysterious man named Soushi Miketsukami, who seems to know her somehow, is assigned as her bodyguard. (B+)

Characters: Well fleshed-out -- A-

Art & Animation: A+

Voice Acting: Japanese -- A / Dub -- B+

Music: A

Objectionable Content: Suggestive material and innuendo

Other: A crazy cast with an odd setting means lots of strange but funny situations come into play. There are a lot of serious elements as well. I was put off by the girl-crazy Yuki-onna.

I have never read the manga (Youko x Boku).

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 2.5/5
