Cyborg 009

Plot: A young man named Joe Shimamura finds out that he has been made into a cyborg weapon by a mysterious organization known as "Black Ghost". With the help of eight others like him who have amazing abilities, he sets out to discover the global weapons organization's goals and thwart their evil plans. (A-)

Characters: Each one is well-explored and intriguing (A)

Art & Animation: B-

Voice Acting: A

Music: B

Objectionable Content: I watched the edited version that aired on Toonami, and I don't remember there being much besides blood and perhaps mild language.

Other: A sci-fi series that can range from light action/adventure to some very heavy sociopolitical themes. What I saw of the anime was very good; I have never read the book.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 2.5/5

Rurouni Kenshin

Plot: It's the eleventh year of the Meiji era. Kaoru Kamiya is in pursuit of a man calling himself "Hitokiri Battousai", who uses her father's sword style to kill. A wandering samurai named Kenshin Himura helps her defeat the murderer. Much to Kaoru's surprise, Kenshin is actually the legendary assassin, "Hitokiri Battousai". He has sworn never to kill again and now uses his sword to protect as atonement for the lives he took during the Revolution. His vow will prove difficult to keep, as enemies from his past come back to haunt him...(A)

Characters: Interesting and well-developed (A)

Art & Animation: A-

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

Music: B+

Objectionable Content: Blood, profanity

Other: I watched the edited version on Toonami on and off, but I liked what I saw. I've only read a few volumes of the manga.

Being a historically-based anime/manga, prepare to be flooded with facts. It may be difficult to keep track of all the politics going on throughout the series.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 3/5

Tsubasa: Those With Wings

Plot: At the end of the 22nd century, wars have all but destroyed the planet, and everyone but the military and the well-to-do live in poverty. Kotobuki is an orphan who is looking to get off of her path of thievery; Raimon is a military man who is in love with Kotobuki. The two of them soon find themselves traveling together as they search for the legendary "Tsubasa", which is said to grant wishes... (A-)

Characters: B+

Art: B+

Objectionable Content: Explicit material, strong profanity

Other: Since I enjoyed "Fruits Basket" (for the most part), I wanted to try "Tsubasa". Promising story, entertaining characters -- ruined by explicit sex between the unwed "hero" and "heroine" of the story. I was sorely disappointed and stopped reading after the second omnibus/Big volume.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 1/5 (Stopped reading)

Maid Sama!

Plot: Misaki Ayuzawa lives in a single-parent home with her mother and little sister. The house is in disrepair, and there isn't much money coming in, so she gets a job at a maid cafe. When Misaki's not working at Maid Latte, she's working as student council president. To run the formerly notorious all-boys school, she has to lay down the law and enforce it with an iron fist -- so the last thing she wants is for anyone to find out about her job! When her classmate, Takumi Usui, sees her in her maid uniform, Misaki fears for the reputation she worked so hard to build...! (B)

Characters: Quirky and over-the-top (A-)

Art & Animation: B

Voice Acting: A

Music: B

Objectionable Content: Fan service, profanity, suggestive themes

Other: It's a fun watch overall -- something you can sit down and laugh at when you need to chill. As with many shojo series, it seems, there are some gay gags.

I have not read the manga.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 2.5/5

R. o. D TV

Plot: It's been five years since Yomiko Readman's disappearance. Three sisters who have the ability to manipulate paper become bodyguards for a young author named Nenene Sumieregawa (who is also Yomiko's best friend) after an incident at a press conference. The sisters, Michelle, Maggie and Anita, stay at Nenene's place and cause all kinds of trouble for her. As they deal with minor threats along the way, they stumble onto something much more dangerous...(A-)

Characters: A

Art & Animation: A-

Voice Acting: Original Japanese - A (I've only seen one episode in the dub a LONG time ago...)

Music: B+

Objectionable Content: Blood, suggestive themes, profanity (a few episodes contain explicit material or nudity)

Other: Definitely watch the "Read or Die" movie FIRST. You might as well be completely lost if you've never seen it, because a lot carries over into the series.

The characters are interesting and so are the plot twists, but some episodes (the ones with the really bad stuff) are downright WEIRD.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 3/5
