Ergo Proxy

Plot: When the peaceful dome-city of Romdeau is rocked by murders carried out by androids (or "AutoReivs") that have been infected with a virus that makes them self-aware, investigator Re-L Mayer is put on the job. Her search leads to encounters with mysterious beings known as "Proxies". An immigrant named Vincent Law has some connection with them, and Re-L is determined to get to the bottom of the mystery of the virus and the Proxies... (A-)

Characters: B+

Art & Animation: A+

Voice Acting: Dub -- A- / Original Japanese: A

Music: A-

Objectionable Content: Blood, profanity, some suggestive material (don't remember much else)

Other: Somewhat convoluted (and bogged down with philosophical ponderings), some episodes make less sense than others; but overall, an intriguing anime.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 3/5

Nui!

Plot: Kaya is a teen who could care less about the things normal teenaged girls are interested in like boyfriends, makeup and cute clothes. She still loves her stuffed animals -- and she soon finds out that her love has given her stuffed animals life, and they love her back! (B+)

Characters: B

Artwork: B+

Objectionable Content: Mild. Fanservice

Other: From the creator of "+Anima". Nui is the "Velveteen Rabbit" and "Toy Story" of manga -- only these toys can transform into humans in highly-emotional situations. Only one volume was released stateside.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 2.5/5

Blue Inferior

Plot: Pollution has destroyed most of the land, and people live in the sparse patches of livable land that still remain, fearful of the contaminated "sub-humans" that live in the outside world. An adventurous boy named Kazuya finds a girl named Marine washed up on the seashore one day and befriends her. But Marine has no idea who she is or where she came from, and when the people begin to fear that Marine is a sub-human, Kazuya wants to help her... (A)

Characters: B+

Artwork: B

Objectionable Content: Mild. Profanity, at most.

Other: The story is very good and keeps you guessing. Sadly, only one volume was released stateside (that I know of).

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 3/5

Casshern Sins

Plot: In a world that is dying, the few remaining humans and androids are all succumbing to "The Ruin". The only one who seems immune is Casshern, who has lost his memory and is hunted down by those who want his immortality and those who blame him for killing their savior, Luna, and thus causing the Ruin. As Casshern searches for answers, he encounters many who face the Ruin with strength... (B)

Characters: B

Art & Animation: Madhouse close to its finest. A+

Voice Acting: A

Music: A

Objectionable Content: Blood, profanity, suggestive themes (one episode has nudity and sexual material -- felt like drug tripping??)

Other: Best described as a "dark ballet". Artfully executed, but not a light watch AT ALL. Also, I'm taking off points for the half-baked ending.

Also, it's sort of tied to the older OVA, "Casshan, Robot Hunter". The OVA makes more sense. (First episode has partial nudity.)

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 2/5

Gunslinger Girl

Plot: Under the guise of running a charitable organization for the rehabilitation of injured children, the Social Welfare Agency does military work for the Italian government -- using bionically-enhanced girls as tools. (A-)

Characters: A

Art & Animation: A

Voice Acting: A-

Music: A

Objectionable Content: Blood (many parts where squeamish people must cover their eyes), profanity

Other: A very dark anime, not one I go back to very often. The driving points of this one are the relationships of the girls with each other and with their handlers, and the conflict between these girls' human emotions and their use as conditioned killing-machines.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 2/5
