New Anime Series...

In semi-order of best to worst....

Death Note - Very interesting concept. Who would you kill if you had a notebook that would ensure the death of anyone who's name you wrote into it? You could specify cause of death, or let it default to a heart attack...

Pumpkin Scissors - Post war, centered around a war relief unit and one very strong anti-tank solder.

Kanon - Remember AIR? Here's Kanon. Slow, pretty, err... harem. Still, pretty.

D.Gray-man - Uh, simplified plot="group of people with special tools to combat evil things that are taking over the world by eating humans." Like Gatekeepers. Amusing, with a good dash of action. May watch more for sake of amusement.

Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru - amusing series with a crossdressing main character (lousy reason: his grandmother wanted him to attend an all-girls school as her dying request/will/something or other). Like watching a train wreck in motion, without the annoying details of exactly how he's pulling off the boobs and such. Of course, he has some help...

Shounen Onmyouji - Something to do with magic, spirits, and feudal Japan uh... in the Heian period, I've been told. There's a 'pet' rabbit-like creature as the main character's 'familiar', but he transforms into a guy, with a complete personality change. Kinda.

Ghost Hunt - Skimmed. Series about hunting ghosts, I assume. (no really, baka) Uhm. Looks like this was just the intro, bringing in all the players. We shall have to wait another episode.

Busou Renkin - Much abused plot idea of guy who is uh, granted powers to save the world. Includes female sidekick who granted him said powers. Ranked at, or below Kiba, Zegapain, etc (which was mid-low grade, even though I'm still collecting and watching it.)

Yoake mae yori ruriiro na: Crescent Love - Humor, Harem. Doesn't look like much more than that...

Asatte no Houkou - Skimmed, doesn't look interesting yet.

Tokimeki Memorial - Skimmed. There was a school, a mad chase... aspects of a harem series. Doesn't look all that interesting.

Lovely Idol - Skimmed. Has something to do with singing girls. The episode ended with the agent of a group of girls approaching a girl who sang on the street - he asked her to join them, but said girl replied that she sang... for revenge. WTF? May have to watch more to see where that's going to go. Not expecting much though.

Happiness! - Skimmed. There's girls, magic, reminds me of Nanoha, but.. not as good or interesting.

Sumomo mo momo mo - Title reminds me of Bobo bobobobo. That hair anime series that was kinda funny, but I never saw more of. ^^;; The preview rambled something about creating the strongest child on earth... eps. 1 is downloading now, we shall see....
