Plot: A talented ballet dancer, Rin Ogata had a promising career ahead of her. But an injury stole her chance, and she never returned to the stage. Now in college, Rin stumbles across a club that specializes in motorcycle-like transforming vehicles called Ridebacks. When she tries to ride one, she finds that her balance and versatility in dancing make her a natural at it. But her skills gain the attention of two dangerous groups: one is the GGP, which has taken over the government; the other is the rebel group that uses Ridebacks to go against it. (A)

Characters: B+

Art & Animation: Absolutely gorgeous (A+)

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

Music: B

Objectionable Content: Blood, profanity

Other: Beautifully executed and complex, but sometimes confusing, leaving some loose ends. This is another anime that left me with mixed feelings.

I have never read the manga version.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 2/5

Night Raid 1931

Plot: The year is 1931. The world is embroiled in political turmoil, and the Imperial Japanese Army is stationed in mainland China. Team Sakurai, a group of super-powered agents, is dispatched to Shanghai to deal with political threats in secret. (A for interest)

Characters: A-

Art & Animation: Great attention to detail; beautiful work (A+)

Voice Acting: Dub -- A-

Music: B

Objectionable Content: Blood, profanity, suggestive themes

Other: Steeped in political intrigue and historical background, this is not a series you can just sit back and watch without wracking your brain. There's a lot going on and a constant flood of information coming at you, and if you don't catch it, you're lost. Sometimes it becomes too bogged-down, but there's rarely a dull moment between the action and the interactions of the Sakurai team members.

"Night Raid 1931" starts great, has some really good episodes and some that leave you scratching your head and wondering what you just watched -- an uneven quality of writing, I guess. So I left this series with mixed feelings.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 2/5

Plot: Yotsuba Koiwai is an energetic five-year-old who lives with her adoptive father. Together with her neighbors and friends, Yotsuba has many adventures (and misadventures) as she explores and makes new discoveries. (B)

Characters: Cute and quirky (A-)

Art: A

Objectionable Content: Occasional profanity

Other: A hilarious, clean comedy series! Definitely recommended to anyone. ^^

Overall Score: A-

Recommendation: 3/5

The Friendly Winter

Plot: Nineteen-year-old Da-Jeong has a rare growth disorder that causes her to look like a young child. Seventeen-year-old Min-Seong has a mental disorder and acts like a small boy. When the two meet, they become close friends, sharing both smiles and tears... (A-)

Characters: A

Art: A-

Objectionable Content: Profanity

Other: I recently found this manhwa on a manga website and am enjoying it very much. The characters are extremely well-done, and while there are no epic battles, the plot and psychology keep you enthralled.

Overall Score: A-

Recommendation: 3.5/5

Plot: Two insurance agents, Meryl and Milly, have been sent to evaluate claims involving the "Humanoid Typhoon", Vash the Stampede. Every time he appears, he leaves a trail of extensive damages in his wake, and it's the young ladies' job to make sure those damages are minimized. Unclear on the identity of this destructive man with a bounty of 60 billion double-dollars on his head, they chase down any leads they come across. When this gets them into serious trouble, a strange man with amazing skills saves them -- and the peace-loving goof-ball turns out to be the real Vash the Stampede! (B)

Characters: B+

Art & Animation: A-

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

Music: D

Objectionable Content: Blood, profanity, suggestive themes

Other: This futuristic space-Western starts off very goofy and adventurous and makes a complete 180 to a dark, brooding drama halfway through. As it gets more serious, the level of objectionable content increases.

I have never read the Trigun manga.

Overall Score: B-

Recommendation: 2.5/5
