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

MAOH: Juvenile Remix

Plot: Nekota city is facing crisis as big corporations try to move in with a "restoration" project. Hoodlums run wild, and amidst the chaos, a vigilante group known as Grasshopper arises. In the meantime, a normal teen-aged boy named Ando has just discovered that he has the ability to make others vocalize his thoughts -- and when Ando discovers the horrible truth behind Grasshopper and its leader, Inukai, he decides to face them with his newfound power. (A-)

Characters: B

Artwork: B-

Objectionable Content: blood, profanity, suggestive themes/fan service

Other: A manga with an odd style and an interesting concept. As the plot progresses, however, the developments are fairly anticlimactic -- it's really less than satisfying.

Overall Score: B-

Recommendation: 1.5/5

Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii

Plot: Princess Nike of the Rain Dukedom is engaged to Livius, king of the Sun Kingdom, for a political marriage. But she's in for a surprise when she finds that the fearsome king who took over the world in only three years is still a child -- and his first request of her is to use her ability to summon rain! (Not too original, but still enjoyable -- B)

Characters: A

Art & Animation: B+

Voice Acting: A-

Music: A bit overbearing at times (B)

Objectionable Content: Mild blood, profanity, suggestive themes

Other: The title translates to "Even So, the World is Still Beautiful." The manga has a similar flavor to titles like "Dawn of the Arcana", "The Story of Saiunkoku" and "Akagami no Shirayukihime".

The anime version just aired! They're changing it up a little, so we'll see what they do with it.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 3.5/5

Isshukan Friends (One-Week Friends)

Plot: Kaori Fujimiya has an odd problem: the memories of her friends disappear after one week. Even so, Yuuki Hase wants to make friends with her. (Points for something a bit different -- B)

Characters: B

Art & Animation: A

Voice Acting: A-

Music: A-

Objectionable Content: Mild

Other: The thing about the manga that takes the most getting used to is that it switches between a traditional layout and a 4-panel layout.

The anime version just aired, and they're really doing a good job with it!

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 2.5/5

Skip Beat

Plot: Kyoko Mogami has always supported her childhood infatuation, Sho, on his road to stardom. But as soon as he hits it big in show-biz, he ditches her. To get revenge, Kyoko goes into show-biz, herself, vowing to beat Sho and make him acknowledge her. (C+)

Characters: Enter, hilarity! (A)

Art & Animation: B+

Voice Acting: A-

Music: B

Objectionable Content: Profanity, suggestive themes

Other: That premise. That dumb synopsis. I left this book on a shelf after seeing it at a book sale. Years later, at someone's recommendation, I have seen the anime and am reading the manga -- and I LOVE it. There's no way you can walk away from reading/watching Skip Beat without laughing at least once. And there's more to the story than that stupid synopsis lets on.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 3.5/5
