Introduction
Full Metal Panic doesn't do anything new, it just does everything better

A lot of mechas alternate between school and action trying to be two different animes at once but were always lacking in one respect. Full Metal Panic is the exception. True, the young Sergeant moonlighting between school and working as a mercenary seems cliche at first, but there's something different about Sousuke and his personality that makes him interesting as a fighter as well as a student. Full Metal Panic does the best job of balancing the two so it never feels like the school episodes are fillers but are necessary read more

Introduction
The second season of Ah! My Goddess is a great compliment to the first season. With more characters, more romance, and more fun episodes, this series has definitely improved.

Story
Although the anime lacks a compelling, overarching story, I find the 1-2 episode stories to be very fun and entertaining. Each episode seems to center around a different character but shares a common thread of love and the importance of friendship and family. There are many new romantic developments that occur for side characters, but the Keiichi and Belldandy's relationship does not seem to progress as much as you would like it read more

Introduction
Ah! My Goddess is a light-hearted, sweet, fantasy without serious romance or ecchiness. It's a great anime to watch if you are not looking for anything special but rather sit and relax to an easy viewing. As mentioned by other reviewers, I think girls will like this series more than guys because of the strong female lead and role reversals. However, those hard-core romantics who are seeking relationship development and ecchi harem loving guys should look elsewhere.

Story
The story starts out centered around the male lead, Keiichi, who has no luck but is still kind and generous to others. When given read more

Introduction
Nodame Cantabile is love at first sight. From the very first episode, you notice it is something special. Not only does it entertain, but it also inspires passion, appreciation for beauty, and transports you to your own personal paradise. If I could, I would give this anime an 11 because I cannot and will not compare it to any other anime.

Story
The story is deep yet not complicated enough to detract you from the main plot. An arrogant and talented college student with both ambition and passion chases his dream of being a conductor with the help of other young musicians read more

Introduction
Like many others, I watched this series after I finished Onegai Teacher. I came in with expectations for the same level of romance and involvement I had with Onegai Teacher, but I was surprised to find out that the two series were shockingly different.

Story
The problem with the story is that it had a very weak hook. This is not a series where you see love develop like in Onegai Teacher. Instead, Miina and Karen's affections for Maiku are very blatant. Most of the story focuses on their conflict between being in love with Maiku as a brother and as a potential read more

Story
Onegai Teacher is a love story about a forbidden relationship between a teacher and her student. Their relationship starts out as a cover up, but grows into something much deeper and meaningful. There is a fair share of comedic moments, twists, and misunderstandings, but this story is essentially about their marriage: its highs and lows, happy and sad moments, fights and makeups.

It is a very short series, only 12 episodes long, so there is no elaborate plot. The alien aspect does not even play that big of a role. They are merely devices used to create obstacles in their read more

At first, I was apprehensive about watching this anime because I am not a big mecha fan and I hate kid anime characters. However, this show really sucked me in after the first few episodes and I found myself wanting more and more.

The story is simple and easy to follow. Kid acquires a special power and progressively gets stronger and stronger while fighting tougher opponents and gaining supporters. It was very predictable but the story was never intended to be the main attraction. It was the playground and you were just happy to be in the sandbox with all your friends.
