Accel World

Plot: Haruyuki Arita hates himself and his school life. He has bullying problems due to his weight and spends most of his time playing online games, as they're the only thing he excels at. When his upperclassman, Kuroyukihime, gives him a program called "Brain Burst", he's instantly intrigued by his newfound ability to accelerate to amazing speeds. But to keep the program, he has to fight other Burst Linkers to keep his in-game points from reaching zero... (A)

Characters: Multi-layered and investing (A)

Art & Animation: A

Voice Acting: A

Music: A-

Objectionable Content: Profanity, suggestive themes, fan service

Other: This series is complex and intriguing. The design of the main character may take a bit of getting used to, but keep watching. I'd definitely recommend it.

Overall Score: A

Recommendation: 4.5/5

Plot: In the future, seven super-powered clans fight for control under their "kings". Yashiro Isana lives on-campus at his high school, which is built on a small island. His life is peaceful there until someone that looks like him is caught on video killing a member of one of the clans. With clan members now on his trail, a dangerous man named Kuro hunts him down to carry out his late mentor's request -- deem whether the new "colorless king" is good or evil; and if he is evil, kill him. While Yashiro tries to prove that he hasn't killed anyone, he is targeted by the other clans and soon becomes embroiled in their war. (A)

Characters: B+

Art & Animation: A+

Voice Acting: A

Music: A+ (on the interior music, but not the opening or ending XD)

Objectionable Content: Blood, nudity, strong profanity, fan service/suggestive themes

Other: The series is confusing at the outset, but progressively pieces together what's going on. The art is amazing, the interior music is unique, and the characters are fun. The biggest blows against it are the level of objectionable content and its hints at shonen-ai. ^

Overall Score: A-

Recommendation: 3/5

Plot: After their parents are murdered, Thor and his twin brother, Rai, are dropped on a planet called Chimaera, where the worst criminals are sent to die, and fighting is the only way to survive. Rai is killed, but Thor is taken in by the Ochre Ring. There, he learns that the only way off of Chimaera is to work his way to the top of his ring and defeat the other leaders -- only then can he take the shuttle back to his home planet, Juno, and unravel the mystery of his parents' murder. (Good concept -- A)

Characters: A-

Art & Animation: A

Voice Acting: Dub -- A-

Music: B+

Objectionable Content: Blood, suggestive themes, profanity

Other: The first episode or two make it seem like a survival battle "Lord of the Flies" style. But, thankfully, that isn't the case. The story picks up quickly, has plenty of good twists, and even at its short eleven or twelve episode length, it's not a bad wrap-up. (Still didn't like the end for certain reasons.)

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 2/5

La Corda d'Oro

Plot: Following a (perhaps unfortunate) fairy encounter, Kahoko Hino is picked to participate in Seiso Academy's schoolwide music competition. She's a general studies student who's never touched an instrument in her life, and the fairy, Lili, gives her a magic violin that anyone can play. But up against the students of the music department, who dedicate all they have to music, she is constantly forced to face the fact that her music doesn't come from her skills. (A-)

Characters: Some of them are a bit hollow/weak (B)

Art & Animation: The animators get lazy a lot. (B)

Voice Acting: A-

Music: B+

Objectionable Content: Mild. Some profanity and suggestive dialogue.

Other: I'm getting to recognize shojo stereotypes and devices now, and there are a lot of your typical ones at play here -- in other words, not much new to see. But it's an entertaining watch nonetheless.

I've never read the manga

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 2.5/5

Astro Boy (2003)

Plot: Famed scientist Dr. O'Shay finds a robotic boy in a lab and reactivates it. The robot, dubbed Astro, has a special system called "Kokoro" that gives him human-like emotions. Astro protects his human companions from danger, but he himself is being targeted by the deranged Dr. Tenma -- as well as by people who hate and fear machines... (B+)

Characters: B

Art & Animation: B+

Voice Acting: Dub -- B

Music: A

Objectionable Content: Virtually none

Other: Yeah, it's a kids' show and some parts are dumbed down (especially later, when they decide to bring Astro's "sister", Zoran, into the picture). But overall, the stories are well-done and interesting to watch (especially when they go into Astro's backstory).

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 2.5/5
