Kiddy Grade

Plot: Humanity has spread into space, bringing with it amazing technologies -- and, unfortunately, crime. When larger threats arise, the GOTT (Galactic Organization of Trade and Tariffs) sends super-powered secret agents called ES members to take care of business. As two low-level agents named Eclaire and Lumiere complete jobs for the GOTT, they start to realize that the GOTT isn't as upstanding as it claims... (A-)

Characters: A

Art & Animation: A-

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

Music: B+

Objectionable Content: Nudity, blood, fan service, profanity

Other: "Kiddy Grade" lays down tantalizing plot hints, builds up to a great climax with lots of unexpected twists, and goes out with a bang.

While the opening and ending credits misleadingly present the series as yuri, there is no romantic relationship between the main characters.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 3/5

Silver Diamond

Plot: In a world that is dying, the feared "monster" of a man named Chigusa attempts to assassinate the evil prince and is banished. Chigusa winds up transported into the backyard of a high school student named Rakan. Because Rakan has the same face as the prince, Chigusa attacks him. But when Rakan accidentally makes his wooden gun grow into a tree, Chigusa realizes that he is a Sanome -- a being that could save his dying world. (A-)

Characters: A-

Art: B+

Objectionable Content: Blood, sexual references, profanity

Other: A good story + fun characters = an enjoyable read. HOWEVER, this manga also plays with shonen-ai.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 2/5

A Devil and her Love Song

Plot: After an incident at her old school, a girl named Maria Kawai transfers into Totsuka High School. She has a sharp wit and an even sharper tongue, creating friction between her and her new classmates. Despite appearances, she sincerely wants to make friends. When some of her classmates hear her beautiful singing, they slowly get close to Maria... (An interesting twist on the boy/girl-meets-transfer-student formula. B+)

Characters: A-

Art: B

Objectionable Content: Profanity, sexual situations

Other: A bit of an unusual psychological story with a few good laughs.

Overall Score: B

Recommendation: 2/5

Psyren

Plot: While on the trail of his missing classmate, Sakurako, Ageha Yoshina receives a phone card from the mysterious Nemesis Q that takes him to a world called Psyren. In order to return to the real world, he must fight his way through the dangers of Psyren. Ageha and his friend, Hiryu, manage to return with Sakurako. Regardless, they and the other holders of the Psyren cards (AKA Psyren Drifters) will be summoned back until the number on their cards reach zero. The key to survival is PSI, and Sakurako and the woman who taught her help Ageha and Hiryu to hone their skills. But soon Ageha and crew make a startling discovery: the barren Psyren world is actually the Japan of the future! (A for innovation)

Characters: B+

Art: B

Objectionable Content: Blood (some disturbing images)

Other: Even though there are doses of brief humor, "Psyren" is not a light read. The premise is interesting but dark, and the skirmishes with the deadly Taboo are gritty enough to make your stomach turn. Not recommended for younger readers. (It seems like more and more is being allowed in Teen-rated manga.)

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 3/5

Rideback

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
