Claymore

Plot: Monsters called "Yoma" are terrorizing towns and villages, and the only ones who can match up against them are "Claymores" -- silver-eyed human women with Yoma blood that wield the blades for which they are named... (The story line is this manga's strong suit -- B+)

Characters: B

Artwork: B-

Objectionable Content: Blood/gore, profanity, nudity

Other: A dark action/fantasy manga with a quickly building plot. I'm taking off recommendation points for gore -- some of this stuff is pretty ugly.

This manga has been adapted into an anime, but I have not seen it.

Overall Score: B

Recommendation: 2/5

Coppelion

Plot: After a disaster contaminated Japan and killed most of the population, three super-powered girls calling themselves "Coppelion" go into the capital on a mission to rescue the survivors. (A-)

Characters: B- (probably jumping the gun here, as I've only seen the first two)

Art & Animation: A

Voice Acting: A-

Music: A-

Objectionable Content: Blood, profanity

Other: This anime/manga has an interesting but disturbing premise. Some of the imagery can be disturbing as well, and the stories, though having light moments, don't always have a happy ending.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 2/5

Nagi no Asukara

Plot: Four friends from the undersea village of Shioshishio are forced to attend school on land when their school shuts down. Teasing from classmates aside, Hikari has a big problem. His crush, Manaka, accidentally gets caught in a fishing net by their classmate, Tsumugu -- and she's falling for him! (B+)

Characters: B+

Art & Animation: A

Voice Acting: A

Music: A-

Objectionable Content: Mild, profanity and suggestive themes

Other: Interesting, but slow-paced. It's both a manga and an anime.

Overall Score: A-

Recommendation: 2.5/5
