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+

Overall Score: B

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-

Recommendation: 3.5/5

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

Casshern Sins

Plot: In a world that is dying, the few remaining humans and androids are all succumbing to "The Ruin". The only one who seems immune is Casshern, who has lost his memory and is hunted down by those who want his immortality and those who blame him for killing their savior, Luna, and thus causing the Ruin. As Casshern searches for answers, he encounters many who face the Ruin with strength... (B)

Characters: B

Art & Animation: Madhouse close to its finest. A+

Voice Acting: A

Music: A

Objectionable Content: Blood, profanity, suggestive themes (one episode has nudity and sexual material -- felt like drug tripping??)

Other: Best described as a "dark ballet". Artfully executed, but not a light watch AT ALL. Also, I'm taking off points for the half-baked ending.

Also, it's sort of tied to the older OVA, "Casshan, Robot Hunter". The OVA makes more sense. (First episode has partial nudity.)

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 2/5

Gunslinger Girl

Plot: Under the guise of running a charitable organization for the rehabilitation of injured children, the Social Welfare Agency does military work for the Italian government -- using bionically-enhanced girls as tools. (A-)

Characters: A

Art & Animation: A

Voice Acting: A-

Music: A

Objectionable Content: Blood (many parts where squeamish people must cover their eyes), profanity

Other: A very dark anime, not one I go back to very often. The driving points of this one are the relationships of the girls with each other and with their handlers, and the conflict between these girls' human emotions and their use as conditioned killing-machines.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 2/5
