Plot: A platoon of five space frogs is on a mission to conquer the earth! But thank goodness for Earth, these guys aren't very good at their job. (B)
Characters: Not well developed, but lots of fun -- B
Art & Animation: B-
Voice Acting: B-
Objectionable Content: Mild, maybe profanity and some suggestive themes
Other: Parodies a-plenty and quick jabs at real-life events. Sometimes a bit too random.
I've never read the manga.
Overall Score: B-
Plot: Tsukihiko is nearly killed when he tries to save a girl named Sami from an assassination attempt. Both of them are saved by having their bodies augmented with special technology, and six years later, when they meet again, Tsukihiko becomes Sami's protector. (A)
Objectionable Content: Blood, some profanity, suggestive material
Other: Has comedy, serious moments and action, with a bit of romance. Recent chapters are confusing and a bit of a let-down.
Overall Score: A-
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
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
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and when he finds a discarded medal (essentially the Medabot's "soul"), he rushes to his local store and buys a cheap, outdated model named Metabee.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
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+
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)
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+
