AnoHana

Plot: Five friends drift apart after the death of a girl named Meiko Honma (AKA Menma). One summer, she comes back to have a certain wish granted -- but only one of the group, Jinta, can interact with her. (A)

Characters: Though I didn't feel particularly attached to any of them, they were explored enough to develop well. (A-)

Art & Animation: A

Voice Acting: A

Music: A+

Objectionable Content: Suggestive material, profanity

Other: This is not an anime I would have watched if I hadn't kept hearing how good it was. Anything with "ghosts" I usually avoid, but this one isn't creepy or occult -- it has more of a fantasy feel. This one's a tear-jerker, so keep a kleenex handy (though it's not as bad as Clannad Afterstory).

Overall Score: A

Recommendation:3.5/5

Zettai Karen Children: The Unlimited - Hyoubu Kyousuke

Plot: When the infamous Kyousuke Hyoubu pays a visit to an anti-ESPer prison, Andy Hinomiya is quick to latch onto him. Hinomiya is an investigator sent to check up on Hyoubu's criminal group, P.A.N.D.R.A., and to do that, he must gain the group's trust. But he is surprised to find that the group, including its leader, has another face -- that of a protector for ESPers. (Interesting from the get-go -- A)

Characters: B+

Art & Animation: A

Voice Acting: A-

Music: B+

Objectionable Content: blood/gore, profanity, suggestive themes

Other: A spin-off of "Zettai Karen Children" (English: "Psychic Squad"). Unlike its predecessor, "The Unlimited" is undoubtedly shonen and fairly serious. It disposes of the fan service and innuendo (thank goodness), but starts out with some gore (so, squeamish viewers, keep your finger on the fast-forward or cover your eyes). Fans of "Children", you'll be pleased to see lots of the original cast reappearing here.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 3/5

Crest of the Stars

Plot: The planet of Martine was surrendered to the Abh race in exchange for noble titles for the politicians. Jinto, a young noble, is set to go to an Abh military school to further his education. On his way, he meets an Abh princess named Lafiel and quickly befriends her. When the two arrive aboard the military ship, Gosroth, battle suddenly breaks out, plunging the Abh empire into war... (B+)

Characters: Could have been fleshed out more (B)

Art & Animation: C+

Music: B

Voice Acting: B+

Objectionable Content: mild

Other:

Overall Score: B

Recommendation: 2.5/5

Kotoura-san

Plot: Haruka Kotoura has the ability to read minds but can't control it. People ostracize her for peeking into their thoughts without permission, and it gets to the point where Kotoura has to transfer schools -- which is when she meets a boy named Manabe who accepts her and her ability. (A)

Characters: A-

Art & Animation: A-

Voice Acting: A

Music: A

Objectionable Content: Innuendo/suggestive themes, profanity

Other: Nothing happens the way you expect, which makes for a fun watch.

Overall Score: A-

Ergo Proxy

Plot: When the peaceful dome-city of Romdeau is rocked by murders carried out by androids (or "AutoReivs") that have been infected with a virus that makes them self-aware, investigator Re-L Mayer is put on the job. Her search leads to encounters with mysterious beings known as "Proxies". An immigrant named Vincent Law has some connection with them, and Re-L is determined to get to the bottom of the mystery of the virus and the Proxies... (A-)

Characters: B+

Art & Animation: A+

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

Music: A-

Objectionable Content: Blood, profanity, some suggestive material (don't remember much else)

Other: Somewhat convoluted (and bogged down with philosophical ponderings), some episodes make less sense than others; but overall, an intriguing anime.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 3/5
