I first read the manga and found it to be good. I looked forward to Asu no Yoichi! the anime, and after all 12 episodes, it met my expectations.

Asu no Yoichi! is a comedy, harem about a teen samurai who has lived his entire life in the mountains with his father. He goes off to live in the city and stays at the Ikaruga house, ran by four sisters. With this setup, hilarity ensues, which is the main form of entertainment in Asu no Yoichi!.

The story consists of episodic events involving Yoichi, the Ikaruga sisters, and masked figures who apparently wants Yoichi dead, sending assassin ...

Inukami! (Anime) add
Inukami! is a slapstick comedy following the adventures of Keita and Youko as they face enemies and spirits that must be vanquished. After 26 episodes, I must admit I was a bit bored with the episodic, repetitive style Inukami! follows, but the comedy throughout each episode was worth watching.

There's very little character development, even among the main characters. Inukami! is meant as a pure comedy anime, and as such, things such as story and characters are definitely not strengths here. The reason for watching is to enjoy and laugh at the hilarious situations that come up.

The art is well done. There is very little CG ...

Nabari no Ou (Anime) add
Nabari no Ou is not a ninja anime. Yes, the synopsis would disagree with me, but after watching all 26 episodes, the ninja aspect of Nabari no Ou is pretty much unimportant to the central story.

Nabari no Ou is more about the relationship between Yoite and Miharu. They meet each other as enemies, but as the story progresses, they slowly become friends. Yoite wishes Miharu to end his existence using the power Shiranbanshou, while Miharu tries to master this technique to fulfill his wish.

The story, is at best, mediocre. From the synopsis, I was lead to believe this series would be action-packed. But it really ...

Toradora! (Anime) add
When you think of a romance, comedy, school life/slice of life, you think about an anime with two (or more) lovers as they go through thick and thin together. That certainly does not fit the description of Toradora!. In fact, I don't think anything is able to describe just how funny, touching, deep, and serious Toradora! is.

I started watching Toradora! after reading the first few chapters of the manga. At first, I thought it was one of those series focusing purely on romance and comedy. I thought it was a carefree series that will bring watchers some laughs with some moments of romance. The ...

To Aru Majutsu no Index is an action, comedy set in a modern (or perhaps slightly futuristic) city called Academy City. The entire city is basically composed of several schools that teach the usage of Esper; a scientific kind of magic.

The story revolves around the protagonist Kamijou Touma, as he is caught between tensions and events involving conflicts between Magic and Esper (science). While the first few episodes were quite promising, hinting at a huge power struggle between two sides, with Touma being in the center of attention, the rest was quite the letdown. There wasn't any deep story. The main plot simply gets ...

Deep Love - Ayu no Monogatari is definitely not your typical girl-finds-guy and falls in love type of romance manga. I started reading with that mindset, and after 8 chapters, I was blown away. Deep Love - Ayu no Monogatari was not only atypical, but delivers such deep themes and story to readers that will fill you with either sympathy, happiness, or anguish by the time you finish.

The story is quite simple and straightforward. Ayu is a teenage girl who finds life meaningless, and thus sells her body in a society she sees as decadent and immoral. However, an encounter with a granny changes her ...

7th Period is a Secret is a short story consisting of three chapters. The last two chapters are one shots and are not related to main chapters.

I started reading this with some expectations for it, but I have to say, I was a bit disappointed. Don't get me wrong though; for such a short manga, 7th Period is a Secret was actually quite good. The story is about a high school girl who was an outcast at her previous school. She transfers to a new school, determined to be popular, while hiding her true personality within her. She deceives all but her teacher, who shows ...

Mai-Otome 0~S.ifr~ is a prequel OVA of the Mai-Otome series. It is not connected to the main series plot-wise, but rather tells a story about Lena Sayers (Arikia Yumemiya's mother) as she saves Sifr, a young girl, from destructive forces.

Despite being only 3 episodes only, Mai-Otome 0~S.ifr~ has a satisfying story with a beginning that gradually develops as the plot thickens and ends with a conclusive note. The story is balanced with both deep and comedic moments, and is filled with action-packed scenes.

Like the other Mai-Otome series, the art is the same. There is little CG effects. Despite this, everything is still sharp and ...

Ga-Rei: Zero (Anime) add
First of all, I have not read the manga, but I am told that this is a prequel to it. Makes sense, since it is titled Ga-Rei "-Zero-."

Ga-Rei -Zero- is a series with many surprises. The first two episodes misled me into thinking that this was an action-packed anime with little drama or deep themes. But the entire series as a whole was deeply touching, focusing more on the friendship and love between two protagonists, Tsuchimiya Kagura and Isayama Yomi, as they go through thick and thin down a path that eventually splits into two.

I was deeply impressed with the presentation of Ga-Rei -Zero-. The ...

Kanojo to Natsu to Boku is an eight-paged one shot in full color about a boy's first date at the beach.

The story and characters cannot be properly rated, as this is a one shot, but it's suffice to say that the characters are simple and straightforward. The likewise simple story presented in Kanojo to Natsu to Boku could have developed into a manga with great potential if it was continued.

The art is in full color, and the excellent color contrasts ups the visual quality of the one shot greatly.

Overall, Kanojo to Natsu to Boku features an incredibly short but enjoyable scene. It only took me ...
