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

Isshukan Friends (One-Week Friends)

Plot: Kaori Fujimiya has an odd problem: the memories of her friends disappear after one week. Even so, Yuuki Hase wants to make friends with her. (Points for something a bit different -- B)

Characters: B

Art & Animation: A

Voice Acting: A-

Music: A-

Objectionable Content: Mild

Other: The thing about the manga that takes the most getting used to is that it switches between a traditional layout and a 4-panel layout.

The anime version was handled wonderfully!

Overall Score: A-

Recommendation: 2.5/5

Skip Beat

Plot: Kyoko Mogami has always supported her childhood infatuation, Sho, on his road to stardom. But as soon as he hits it big in show-biz, he ditches her. To get revenge, Kyoko goes into show-biz, herself, vowing to beat Sho and make him acknowledge her. (C+)

Characters: Enter, hilarity! (A)

Art & Animation: B+

Voice Acting: A-

Music: B

Objectionable Content: Profanity, suggestive themes

Other: That premise. That dumb synopsis. I left this book on a shelf after seeing it at a book sale. Years later, at someone's recommendation, I have seen the anime and am reading the manga -- and I LOVE it. There's no way you can walk away from reading/watching Skip Beat without laughing at least once. And there's more to the story than that stupid synopsis lets on.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 3.5/5

Wasureyuki

Plot: Tomo has known Miyako for as long as he can remember. He hates that he always has to come to her rescue because of her clumsiness. But when Miyako is about to leave for the States, will Tomo be able to put his ugly feelings behind him? (B-)

Characters: B

Artwork: B+

Objectionable Content: Mild

Other: A bittersweet one-shot manga. Very nicely done.

Overall Score: B

Recommendation: 2/5

Little Busters

Plot: Orphaned Riki Naoe and his four childhood friends make up the Little Busters. With talk of going their separate ways to college and work after high school, the Little Busters want to spruce up their remaining time together with as much fun as they can cram in -- so they start looking for members to form a baseball team... (Not a whole lot happens at the start, but it gets better. B)

Characters: B

Art & Animation: A

Voice Acting: A-

Music: A

Objectionable Content: Mild; some fan service/innuendo, mild profanity

Other: Key's newest addition to their quality lineup is also a slice-of-life school drama that starts off light with some unusual characters and off-base gags. The whole first season is basically all character arcs that have some teaser questions thrown in, waiting to be answered.
The payoff for your patience doesn't come until season two, "Refrain", where the series' initial questions are finally addressed and (like Clannad After Story) the story takes a very unexpected turn from upbeat and silly to downright depressing. I wasn't able to finish this one, but not really because anything was "wrong with it."

Overall Score: A-

Recommendation: 2/5
