Plot: A widowed mother struggles to build a normal life for herself and her two not-so-normal children -- who are both part wolf! (B)
Characters: The kids are utterly adorable! (B)
Objectionable Content: Suggestive themes
Other: The title translates to "Wolf Children: Ame And Yuki". The movie that was recently released is based on the manga.
I love the beginning of the manga/movie, but don't like the end -- however, it is well done.
Overall Score: B+
Plot: Chiyo Mihama is a ten-year-old prodigy recently transferred to high school. She quickly makes friends at her new school and has wacky adventures. (B)
Characters: Nothin' deep, but entertaining. (B+)
Art & Animation: B
Voice Acting: I favor the dub. (B+)
Objectionable Content: Suggestive themes/innuendo, profanity
Other: An off-balance slice-of-life comedy driven by its crazy characters that comes from the same author as "Yotsuba&!". This one has some pretty awkward moments as well as extremely hilarious ones.
I have never read the manga.
Overall Score: B
Plot: Asuka Masamune appears to be a man's man -- strong, brave, skilled in kendo -- but he secretly loves cute, girly things like cooking, sewing and shojo manga! The girl he likes is Ryo Miyakozuka, who can't cook, loves martial arts and is heir to a dojo. (B-)
Artwork: Gets sloppy over time (B-)
Objectionable Content: Suggestive themes, mild profanity
Other: Starts fun (and a little awkward) and later becomes monotonous. The art quality also goes down over time.
Overall Score: B-
Plot: Mikado Ryugamine moves out to bustling city of Ikebukuro at the invitation of his friend, Masaomi. He soon learns of the city's legends and dangers and finds himself at their core...(A- for originality)
Art & Animation: A-
Voice Acting: A-
Objectionable Content: Blood, suggestive themes, profanity
Other: A series with oddness that will keep you coming back to find out what happens next. It's made up of the stories of several characters whose lives intertwine.
Overall Score: B
Plot: Five friends drift apart after the death of a girl named Meiko Honma (AKA Menma). One summer, she comes back to have a certain wish granted -- but only one of the group, Jinta, can interact with her. (A)
Characters: Though I didn't feel particularly attached to any of them, they were explored enough to develop well. (A-)
Art & Animation: A
Voice Acting: A
Objectionable Content: Suggestive material, profanity
Other: This is not an anime I would have watched if I hadn't kept hearing how good it was. Anything with "ghosts" I usually avoid, but this one isn't creepy or occult -- it has more of a fantasy feel. This one's a tear-jerker, so keep a kleenex handy (though it's not as bad as Clannad Afterstory).
Overall Score: A
