Zankyou no Terror | Zennou no Noa | Zoids | Zoids: Chaotic Century


Plot: Small AI robots called Medabots are all the rage, especially among kids. Ikki Tenryou is desperate to have one (though he can't afford it), and when he finds a discarded medal (essentially the Medabot's "soul"), he rushes to his local store and buys a cheap, outdated model named Metabee. There's just one problem -- this particular Medabot has a serious attitude problem! How will Ikki ever be able to control it well enough to get to the World Robattle tournament? (Another tournament anime with some interesting plot twists --C+)

Characters: Substance and variety -- A-

Art & Animation: C+

Voice Acting: C

Music: B-

Objectionable Content: Mild

Other: Starts out pretty light-hearted and has some really off-base gags and villains. Later on, more serious elements come into play. The second season switches out some of the voice actors, which I really disliked. There was also some really weird stuff going on, even though it had one or two good plot points.

I read a little bit of the comic, but the art was really bad, and it was hard to follow.

Overall Score: C+

Recommendation: 2.5/5

One Piece

Plot: Following in the footsteps of his hero, Monkey D. Luffy sets out to put together a crew and be king of the pirates! (Not great, not bad -- B-)

Characters: Good character development -- A-

Art & Animation: Good animation, but don't like the art style -- C

Voice Acting: C

Music: C

Objectionable Content: The 4Kids edited version didn't have much -- this is the only version I've seen.

Other: I could never get over the art, and other things that I disliked built up until I eventually stopped watching. I have only read bits of the manga.

Overall Score: C

Recommendation: 2/5

Inu x Boku SS

Plot: Maison de Ayakashi is a place for people descended from mythological creatures. The socially-challenged Ririchiyou Shirakiin moves there in hopes of bettering herself, and a mysterious man named Soushi Miketsukami, who seems to know her somehow, is assigned as her bodyguard. (B+)

Characters: Well fleshed-out -- A-

Art & Animation: A+

Voice Acting: Japanese -- A / Dub -- B+

Music: A

Objectionable Content: Suggestive material and innuendo

Other: A crazy cast with an odd setting means lots of strange but funny situations come into play. There are a lot of serious elements as well. I was put off by the girl-crazy Yuki-onna.

I have never read the manga (Youko x Boku).

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 2.5/5

Free! Iwatobi Swim Club

Plot: Haruka, Makoto, Nagisa and Rin -- four childhood friends who swam together in elementary school -- are reunited in high school. But Rin has changed, and after he challenges Haruka to a race and wins, the others form a swim club at their school so that they can face Rin again in the upcoming swimming tournament... (Nothing really mind-blowing or unique here -- B)

Characters: B

Art & Animation: A

Voice Acting: A

Music: B

Objectionable Content: Mild

Other: The right balance of fun and serious moments and good characterization makes for an enjoyable watch.

Overall Score: B

Recommendation: 3/5

Lucky Star

Plot: The daily adventures of friends at school. (Nothing substantial -- C-)

Characters: Diverse, can be fun, but not much substance (B-)

Art & Animation: A-

Voice Acting: A-

Music: Didn't stand out as good or bad (C)

Objectionable Content: Mild, some language and suggestive dialogue

Other: Visual gags and references a-plenty, if you can catch them! However, this series lost my interest fairly quickly. I usually like slice-of-life comedies, but this one just didn't catch me -- there's just not enough to it.

Overall Score: C+

Recommendation: 1.5/5
