Battle Royale
987/11911/15 Excellent plotting/characters keeps the thematic rollercoaster fast and furious. The attention to emotional/plot details is astonishingly astute.

Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon

Gantz
8130/38311/37 Harsh, brutal, but unexpectedly poignant. Lacks focus, but there's so much character diversity that it doesn't matter.

Air
4182 Stops short of fully adapting its source material but enough to for a fan to know what's up. Not a good alternative. 1

Aki-Sora
3306 It used to be okay fetishistic, but even then its messy, the art is eventually tiresome, and it loses all merits for laughably trying to excuse the eroticism.

Akira
91206 A superb angst tale told with 'tude. I like the movie for keeping it short, but the manga has far more solid characterizations vs. raw emotions.

Aku no Hana
55811 Though quite responsible with its themes, the often jarring and stilted presentation/characterization takes away any form of satisfaction by the time it ends.

Ayako
7193 It's blunt and eventually a bit too long for its own good, but still a fine and mature drama.

Dragon Head
78910 Though it has a preachy end, Dragon Head eloquently and frankly illustrates fear better than most despite the blunt moments.

Eden: It's an Endless World!
912718 So depressing its numbing, but the constant sub-plots and moral explorations all head somewhere focused, realized, and conclusively. A rare and fair sci-fi treat that should be consumed with utmost care.

Kaze no Tani no Nausicaä
9597 I prefer the movie's concentrated naivete vs. how quick it changes plots/characters near its ending, but at least that ending ties everything together and explores the themes just a bit more.

Kiseijuu
76410 Briskly paced, well characterized, and keeps its premise firmly planted in the ground. Nothing groundbreaking but confidently entertaining.

Kodomo no Jikan
59313 For initially being nothing more fetishistic, it covers a lot of themes, develops characters and plots most finitely. Definitely too long but not bad considering the taboos and eroticism. 588

NHK ni Youkoso!
9111 Fleshes on the anime's situations with more backstory, but still having some red herrings. Pretty amazing the anime turned out as good as it did thanks to this.

NHK ni Youkoso!
7408 Character rewrites and plot expansions ruins an otherwise already flawed but focused story. This ver. here loses the magic and cathartic magic by the end.

No Bra
5325 Nice twists and themes near the end, but far too melodramatic and shallow to make them feel relevant. Weak ending, meh art, and a retarded secondary cast doesn't help.

Nozoki Ana
411713 Dark, twisted, melodramatic, yet commands an expertly guilty use of fanservice, this story unfortunately never knows what to make of such unusual mixture leaving nothing but a quiet rage afterwards.

Ressentiment
7494 Though its characterization, humor, and sci-fi all started off cannons blazing, it sadly spiraled down into a rather pathetic end. It struck several chords with me, but so much disappointment!

Solanin
7282 A very well done coming-of-age but... I'm not a big fan of the "music spiritualism" parts. Otherwise, great developments but a tad simple and short/condensed.
