Captain Earth

Plot: Daichi's father died under mysterious circumstances, and Daichi doesn't know what he wants to do with his future. But when danger leads Daichi to some childhood friends that he wants to protect, Daichi becomes the wielder of the mysterious Livlaster, which allows him to pilot the Earth Engine mech. (B-)

Characters: B

Art & Animation: A

Voice Acting: A

Music: B+

Objectionable Content: Suggestive themes, blood, profanity

Other: A mech anime reminiscent of Eureka7 and Star Driver. There's a lot of techno-jargon and faction-naming in the beginning, and it takes a while before you even know which groups are fighting which and why. The series has potential, but right now it's confusing and the story is just okay.

Overall Score: B

Recommendation: 2.5/5

Brynhildr in the Darkness

Plot: Murakami lost his childhood friend, Kuroneko, in an accident when they were children. Now in high school, Murakami is a member of the astronomy club. A girl named Kuroha Neko transfers into his class, and she looks just like Kuroneko -- but she insists that she's never met him before. And when she protects him from being killed, he finds that she is an artificial "witch", endowed with special powers. She and several other witches escaped from a laboratory and are on the run. Now Murakami wants to save Kuroha in return for saving his life... (A-)

Characters: B

Art & Animation: A

Voice Acting: B-

Music: B+

Objectionable Content: Blood (cover your eyes for some of this if you're touchy like me), sexual innuendo/situations

Other: Adapted from the manga, "Gokukoku no Brynhildr" (which I have not read).

The story has potential, but it takes a couple strange (not in a good way) turns. Also, I was put off by the ecchi fan service that they throw in and try to pass off as "comic relief".

Overall Score: B

Recommendation: 1.5/5

Valvrave the Liberator

Plot: When Haruto's home comes under attack by the Dorssian military, and his crush is killed, he finds a mysterious mech called Valvrave and uses it to save the day. However, partnering with the Valvrave has a strange side effect -- Haruto can't die, and he becomes vampiric. The Dorssian military comes back with a vengeance to seize the mechs, and Haruto, afraid to let anyone else become a monster like him, decides to fight in the Valvrave and defend everyone... (B)

Art & Animation: A

Music: B

Objectionable Content: blood (can go over the top), profanity

Other: Gave up on watching this one partway through.

Overall Score: B

Recommendation: 1.5/5

Selector Infected WIXOSS

Plot: Ruko is new and town and has no friends. Her brother introduces her to a card game called Wixoss, and she finds a special card in her deck that qualifies her as a "selector" -- a candidate for the position of "Eternal Girl" who is entitled to have a wish granted. She is soon searched out by other selectors for battle... (C+)

Characters: B+

Art & Animation: A

Voice Acting: A

Music: A

Objectionable Content: suggestive themes, profanity

Other: The strength of this series is a very strong psychological suspense -- something sinister is lurking under the guise of the innocent card game that the viewers want to find out, and the music and the art really lend to that atmosphere.

However, I'm certainly uneasy with one of the main characters' motivations -- in fact, I'm a bit disturbed to see just how many anime series we have this season that have incest suggested or played as a theme.

Overall Score: A-

Recommendation: 1.5/5

Nisekoi (False Love)

Plot: Raku Ichijo is the heir to a yakuza family, and when his father makes a deal with the leader of a rival family, he is forced to pretend he's in love with the rival's daughter, Chitoge Kurosaki. The thing is, he likes his classmate, Onodera, and he already made an important promise (which he can't remember) with a special girl ten years ago... (B+)

Characters: A-

Art & Animation: A

Voice Acting: A

Music: B

Objectionable Content: suggestive themes, profanity

Other: This is based on a popular Shonen Jump romance series, and with studio Shaft at the reigns, the visuals are pretty unique (though sometimes distracting).

Overall Score: A-

Recommendation: 2.5/5
