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

(Nothing really mind-blowing or unique here -- B)

Characters: B

Art & Animation: A

Voice Acting: A

Music: B

Objectionable Content: Mild

Other: The right balance of fun and serious moments and good characterization makes for an enjoyable watch.

Lucky Star

Plot: The daily adventures of friends at school. (Nothing substantial -- C-)

Characters: Diverse, can be fun, but not much substance (B-)

Art & Animation: A-

Voice Acting: A-

Music: Didn't stand out as good or bad (C)

Objectionable Content: Mild, some language and suggestive dialogue

Other: Visual gags and references a-plenty, if you can catch them! However, this series lost my interest fairly quickly. I usually like slice-of-life comedies, but this one just didn't catch me -- there's just not enough to it.

Overall Score: C+

Recommendation: 1.5/5

Love So Life

Plot: Shiharu is an orphan who works part-time at a childcare facility. When he sees how well she gets along with the kids, the uncle of two of her charges, a TV announcer named Seiji Matsunaga, asks her to babysit the twins, Aoi and Akane. (An okay plot executed well. -- B)

Characters: Love 'em! -- B+

Artwork: B-

Objectionable Content: Mild -- some profanity, mild fan service

Other: Similar to "Gakuen Babysitters" -- if you like "Babysitters", you will like this one.

Overall Score: B

Recommendation: 3.5/5

Characters: B+

Art & Animation: A

Voice Acting: C+

Music: B-

Objectionable Content: Blood, profanity

Other: A good but sadly unfinished story. Some scenes can be quite ugly -- be ready to cover eyes and/or hit FF.

Overall Score: B

Recommendation: 2.5/5
