Pros: Get to see more of the Code Geass characters, filling in their back stories or what went on between episodes. Episodes are short and easy to watch.

Cons: Its a picture drama, so the animation consists of still pictures.

Bottom line: These picture dramas are really great to watch if you like the characters of Code Geass and want to find out more about them. Its by no means necessary to enjoy Code Geass, but it really doesn't hurt either, especially if you are the sort of person who wonders about the smaller details.

Pros: Funny, get to see Caren and Bazett in their animated debut

Cons: Some of the fanservice can be sort of cringe-worthy.

Bottom line: Watch this if you are already a fan of the Carnival Phantasm series.

This is essentially just another episode of Carnival Phantasm, only slightly longer. If you like that series (which I do) then by all means check this out.

Pros: Episodic format, cool and eerie stories and supernatural elements, interesting ideas.

Cons: Can be difficult to follow, a bit grimdark, and the artwork can get sort of dull.

Bottom line: This series might not be for everyone but I loved it. If you like philosophical and episodic based shows I highly recommend it.

My experiences with Boogiepop:
I love Boogiepop. I loved this show, I love the novels (til they were discontinued stateside), I love the live action movie. And yet when I show it to other people, like my sister or my boyfriend....the reactions are sort of mixed (at best). I'm read more

Pros: Adds new details to the Baccano! universe and wraps things up wonderfully, better than the main series.

Cons: Graham Specter dances on my last nerve.

Bottom line: Watch this after you are done enjoying Baccano!

The ending to this mini series is so much better than the original I honestly don't think you are done watching Baccano! til you've checked out this. The quality of the art/music is the same as the original series, so these short episodes just finish wrapping up certain details and fleshing out certain characters, like Claire and Chane's relationship.

Characters in Baccano! are loveable and here read more

Pros: Its super short

Cons: The animation, background musicc and jokes aren't that good and Chiyo's voice actress will give you a headache.

Bottom Line: Watch if you are really craving more Azumanga Daioh and you already saw the Very Short Movie, otherwise pass it up.

Its a very short series so you don't lose anything from investing 3 minutes of your time, but you won't gain much either. Tomo wanders around with a video camera, and...thats the story. Turn down the sound at the beginning because Chiyo's voice actress (different from the original story) is very shrill.

Pros: Very nice artwork and its short length makes it easy to watch with minimal investment.

Cons: Reuses jokes from main series.

Bottom Line: This short movie acts as a teaser of sorts for the main series. Check this short movie out if you are a fan of the original, and you won't be disappointed.

Pros: Great comedy, short length, skit and episodic format make it easy to pick up

Cons: The skits can fall a little flat and/or be lost in translation, I personally found the Highschool girls are Funky skits to be a bit eyeroll worthy.

Bottom Line: A funny series that doesn't take too much investment to watch. Look at the first few episodes and see if the comedy clicks with you.

Comedy:
Daily Lives of Highschool Boys is first and foremost a comedy series. There isn’t a lot of time spent on character development or any overarching plot. Like Azumanga or other read more
