New anime  
It's a whole new season in Japan! I tried some new Anime recently. Like fub, I'm going to review a few first episodes.

First, I must mention "Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan."

It's about a guy named Sakura, and an angel from the future who tends to beat him to death (and then resurrect him). I don't think I'll go much further into the story, but it has the same director as "Jungle wa Itsumo Hale nochi Guu," and I'm hooked. It has about as much plot so far as "Di Gi Charat" (in other words, plot? what plot?) and about as much blood as "Elfen Lied" (in other words, a lot).

Loveless looks interesting so far, interesting characters, pretty character design, shounen-ai (basically, boys kissing boys), and cat ears. I'm going to follow this one further.

Ichigo 100% seems like another harem anime, but the characters interest me so far. The main character seems to have a think for strawberry-print panties. Definately on the ecchi side.

Erementar Gerad has airship pirates and elemental magic users. I needed more pirate-themed anime. Arrrr. It looks like fun.
Current Mood: calmcalm
Current Music: "Pipiru piru piru pipiru pi" (Dokuro-chan theme)

Loveless and Erementar Gerad sound very interesting to me. I want.

Okay. Want to torrent them yourself? From http://animesuki.com, I find:

http://a.scarywater.net/suck/ for Loveless

and from http://baka-updates.com:
This one is done by 3 groups, none of which I had heard of, but the above is what I got, and it seems fine.

I think I will have to play some "Beating to Death Angel Dokuro-chan" at a party some time, as Guu goes over well, so you can wait till then if it doesn't sound like a must-have now. :)

apparently it's called Tokyo Mew Mew??? and there's a petition to Fox Kids network to change it from mew mew power back to the original title and character names...did you tell me about this once before?

Re: edit...
Wow, I didn't know it was already on Fox, and also didn't know for sure what name they were calling it. At least they didn't go with "Hollywood Mew Mew"...

I'm sure I did mention the show to you, since you're a Sailor Moon fan. :) My favorite magical girl series are Cardcaptor Sakura and Tokyo Mew Mew, though I like several others too. Cardcaptor Sakura went through a pretty bad change in the U.S. as "Cardcaptors," with episodes cut and attempts to change focus away from Sakura as the main character, to try to make it appeal to boys more. I haven't seen it, so I have no idea what they did about all the gay themes.

There's a new one called Magical Canan, but so far it seems like a genre standard with nothing really new or exciting about it.

Re: edit...
i remember watching cardcaptors. i'd like to see the original versions so i can see the difference. i don't remember there being any gay themes in the american version.
