Selector Infected WIXOSS

Plot: Ruko is new and town and has no friends. Her brother introduces her to a card game called Wixoss, and she finds a special card in her deck that qualifies her as a "selector" -- a candidate for the position of "Eternal Girl" who is entitled to have a wish granted. She is soon searched out by other selectors for battle... (C+)

Characters: B+

Art & Animation: A

Voice Acting: A

Music: A

Objectionable Content: suggestive themes, profanity

Other: The strength of this series is a very strong psychological suspense -- something sinister is lurking under the guise of the innocent card game that the viewers want to find out, and the music and the art really lend to that atmosphere.

However, I'm certainly uneasy with one of the main characters' motivations -- in fact, I'm a bit disturbed to see just how many anime series we have this season that have incest suggested or played as a theme.

Overall Score: A-

Recommendation: 1.5/5 (stopped watching)

Nisekoi (False Love)

Plot: Raku Ichijo is the heir to a yakuza family, and when his father makes a deal with the leader of a rival family, he is forced to pretend he's in love with the rival's daughter, Chitoge Kurosaki. The thing is, he likes his classmate, Onodera, and he already made an important promise (which he can't remember) with a special girl ten years ago... (B+)

Characters: A-

Art & Animation: A

Voice Acting: A

Music: B

Objectionable Content: suggestive themes, profanity

Other: This is based on a popular Shonen Jump romance series, and with studio Shaft at the reigns, the visuals are pretty unique (though sometimes distracting).

Overall Score: A-

Recommendation: 2.5/5

Buddy Complex

Plot: When Aoba is attacked by a giant mech, a mysterious girl named Hina saves him and sends him 70 years into the future. Aoba emerges in the middle of a war, and he inadvertently becomes the pilot of one of the army's new mechs, which must be paired with a "buddy" to unlock its special abilities. Aoba gets off on the wrong foot with Dio, the pilot of the buddy mech, and if he's going to find a way to get back to the past, he'll have to figure out how to survive in the future first... (B+)

Characters: B

Art & Animation: A

Voice Acting: A-

Music: B-

Objectionable Content: blood, profanity

Other: The characters aren't anything too special, and the plot is a lot like Gundam, minus the time travel aspect and the coupling mecha. But it's still an enjoyable show.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 2.5/5

MAOH: Juvenile Remix

Plot: Nekota city is facing crisis as big corporations try to move in with a "restoration" project. Hoodlums run wild, and amidst the chaos, a vigilante group known as Grasshopper arises. In the meantime, a normal teen-aged boy named Ando has just discovered that he has the ability to make others vocalize his thoughts -- and when Ando discovers the horrible truth behind Grasshopper and its leader, Inukai, he decides to face them with his newfound power. (A-)

Characters: B

Artwork: B-

Objectionable Content: blood, profanity, suggestive themes/fan service

Other: A manga with an odd style and an interesting concept. As the plot progresses, however, the developments are fairly anticlimactic -- it's really less than satisfying.

Overall Score: B-

Recommendation: 1.5/5

The World is Still Beautiful (Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii)

Plot: Princess Nike of the Rain Dukedom is engaged to Livius, king of the Sun Kingdom, for a political marriage. But she's in for a surprise when she finds that the fearsome king who took over the world in only three years is still a child -- and his first request of her is to use her ability to summon rain! (Not too original, but still enjoyable -- B)

Characters: A

Art & Animation: B+

Voice Acting: B+

Music: C+

Objectionable Content: Mild blood, profanity, suggestive themes

Other: The title translates to "Even So, the World is Still Beautiful." The manga has a similar flavor to titles like "Dawn of the Arcana", "The Story of Saiunkoku" and "Akagami no Shirayukihime".

The anime version is faithful to the book.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 3/5
