Black Bullet

Plot: Monsters mutated by the Gastrea virus threaten mankind, and the only ones that can match up against them are civil agents known as promoters and the cursed children, who have control over the virus and are called initiators. Rentaro and his partner, Enju, are one such promoter/initiator pair who protect the Tokyo area. (B)

Characters: B+

Art & Animation: A

Voice Acting: A

Music: Some music sounds like it came from a cheap horror flick (C)

Objectionable Content: Blood (Be prepared to fast-forward or cover your eyes), profanity (some strong language), suggestive material

Other: Despite what sounds like a promising premise, the first episode is all over the place, and the show comes off as a B-grade sci-fi/horror with some fan service thrown into the mix as a comedic crutch. It gets interesting when the series settles down in the second or third episode and explores the cursed children, who are shunned because they are born with the Gastrea virus. The main character's interactions with them provides the emotional attachment that keeps you watching.

Overall Score: B-

Recommendation: 2/5

When Onoda catches the eye of biking fanatic Shunsuke Imaizumi, he is drawn into the world of bicycling. (B)

Characters: A

Art & Animation: A-

Voice Acting: A-

Music: B+

Objectionable Content: Blood (cover your eyes, squeamish viewers), profanity, innuendo/suggestive themes

There is also a manga, but I've never read it.

Overall Score: A-

Recommendation: 2/5

Chichikogusa

Plot: After the death of his wife, traveling medicine seller, Torakichi, takes his son, Shirou, with him on his routes. His work has kept them apart, and the father and son aren't very close. But they slowly bond as they travel together. (Nothing particularly original, but still good -- B)

Characters: B+

Artwork: B

Objectionable Content: Mild profanity, suggestive themes
