Kamisama Dolls

Another Supernatural anime. I read about this show when the summer chart was released, months ago.

Now that i’ve seen almost half of the episodes, I can say without a doubt that it’s a pretty good anime. The storyline is pretty entertaining and the artwork is nice. There’s mild nudity in it though, from time to time, which wasn’t mentioned anywhere.

I like Utao’s doll, it reminds me of  Timcanpy from D.Gray-Man.

Plot Summary: Kyouhei, after moving away to Tokyo from his old town to get away from the events that happened, is on a goukon with his friends, including his old neighbor, Shiba. After drinking for a whole night, he and Shiba discover a dead, bloody body in the elevator. He is told by his younger sister, Utao with her Kamisama Doll, that Aki, an old friend, and his Doll are the culprits responsible.

Natsume Yuujinchou San

Ah, the third season. The last show was what, a year ago? I remember having really enjoyed that one.

The storyline hasn’t changed all that much, Natsume Takashi is still trying to return the names of all Youkai that his grandmother Reiko has collected in her “Book of Friends”.

The artwork is still as good as ever and the storyline hasn’t really changed, so that’s still as good as ever aswell. So I have no other option but to recommend this anime.

Plot Summary: Natsume Takashi has been able to see yokai since his early days. His grandmother, Reiko, possessed the Yujin-chou, a list of names of yokai sworn to fealty. Ever since Takashi inherited the list, he has been constantly attacked by yokai.

Takashi, however, has decided to return to the yokai their names. Together with his self-proclaimed bodyguard Nyanko, Takashi has met and come to know many yokai.

Nekogami Yaoyorozu

Meh, your average ‘cat-ear-lover’ must be drowning in extacy because of this one.

The story is ‘okay’ but not really that special, it’s just another parent-child ordeal. But instead of normal humans, it’s about cat gods. And instead of being grounded as punishment, the child is banished to live in a house in the “human world” until said parents decide otherwise.

So yeah.. The only thing that makes this show worth watching, is that it’s pretty funny at certain points.

I have no actual complaints about how they drew this, but I have seen some minor things that could have been better.

Plot Summary: Koyama Yuzu is running an antique shop. Mayu, a cat god (nekogami), is living off Yuzu and leads an idle life playing games. Lots of other gods visit Mayu and enjoy merrymaking.

Sacred Seven

Sacred Seven, huh.. Ok. Well, i’m not too sure about this one. On one hand, the story looks pretty decent so far. But on the other.. How good could that story possibly be for a 12 episode show? Don’t get me wrong, a lot of 12 episode animes are great. But this one is a little different, the story seems to be so big and complicated, how the hell are they going work it all out in just 12 episodes? I’m very sceptical about this one.

The artwork is pretty decent, I most certainly would change a thing or two though. The storyline is alright, but seems way too big and complicated for a 12 episode anime.

Plot Summary: Seventeen years ago, several meteorites carrying seven types of alien crystals landed on Earth. Given the name of Sacred Seven, these crystals withhold the power to alter DNA and cause mutations. Inheritor of overwhelming abilities from this enigmatic legacy, Alma Tandoji is an unsociable 17-year-old student feared by his schoolmates due to several rumors of his violent behavior. He is contacted by Ruri Aiba, a rich teenage girl and CEO of the powerful Aiba Foundation, who pleads him to help her fight a mysterious enemy that very recently started causing massive havoc through the land.

No. 6

Nice, very nice. At first I was slightly confused as to where this story was going, but it turned out pretty good. Sion’s face, after that little incident, reminds of another character, i’m not sure which one.

Anyhow, the artwork looks good and the story is getting better, clearer and more interesting. I would definitely recommend this anime, it’s well worth watching.

Plot Summary: Sion is a bright teenager living a comfortable and promising life inside No. 6, one of this six remaining city-states created by The Babylon Treaty after the last great war devastated the world. On the rainy evening of his twelfth birthday, he meets a savvy adolescent who calls himself “Nezumi” (Rat) and is desperately trying to runaway from the authorities. For helping a fugitive of the state, Sion is stripped of all his privileges. Four years later, they meet once again. For better or for worse, Sion is about to unravel the secrets guarded deep inside No. 6.

Nurarihyon no Mago: Sennen Makyou

W00t. About freakin’ time. This season started off just right, with some good action. I love how they finally explain the past of certain characters, because I had questions when I watched the first season.

The characters are still bad-ass, but I think they made Nura Rikuo’s Youkai side a bit weaker, i’m not sure. In the first season he was this powerful character, but now it seems like he needs back-up a lot more often than he used to.

Anyways, the artwork is still as good as ever and the storyline seems to be getting even better. I most definitely recommend this anime to everybody.

Plot Summary: At first glance, Nura Rikuo seems like nothing more than a normal middle-schooler. In actual fact, he is grandson of Nurarihyon, master of a youkai clan.

Having only recently resolved the hostilities between the Nura Clan and the Shikoku Yokai, Rikuo finds no rest as an ancient enemy of the Nura Clan, Haguromo-Gitsune, resurfaces. After 400 years of inactivity, Haguromo-Gitsune suddenly sweeps through Kyoto with overwhelming power.

Ro-Kyu-Bu!

And yet again another anime where all the characters are Loli’s. Seriously, the Japanese have some issues to work out, lol.

But anway, this time it’s about Loli’s and their love for Basketball. So yeah, it’s a show about sports. Now, I do happen to like animes that center around sports, but this is something else. It doens’t look sportive at all.

Hell, even the aunt of the one of the main characters (Hasegawa Subaru) looks like a Loli, and yet you see her driving a car from time to time.

But all that aside,  it’s drawn pretty good and the storyline isn’t too bad. but it’s definitely not the type of anime you’d want to see 24+ episodes of, because at one point it gets boring.

Plot Summary: Hasegawa Subaru enters a basketball club of Nanashiba High School, but the activity of the club gets suspended because the club leader falls in love with an 11 year old daughter of the coaching teacher. Subaru’s aunt asks him to coach a basketball club of elementary school girls. At first, he is reluctant to teach small girls, but he devotes himself to the club as he knows the complex circumstances of them

R-15

Here we go again.. Yet another Ecchi anime. Personally, I like these types of anime because I find them very amusing. But it’s a pretty good concept, this R-15.

So we have a young boy who happens to be a Pornographic Novelist in a school where the majority of which also happens to be of the opposite sex. So his mind, from time to time, wanders off into a world filled with erotic adventures. Guaranteed to be amusing at some level.

The artwork is pretty good and the storyline is so-so.

Plot Summary:  Akutagawa Takuto is a teenage porn novel writer. He enters Hirameki Gakuen, which accepts only geniuses with outstanding talent. He leads his classmates with his porn skills to win the interclass competition.
