Highschool DxD (TV, 2012)

Written by

Overview

Gather round, my loyal minions and let me tell thee of a tale. A tale of lechery and debauchery. A tale of demons and angels. A tale of a man named Issei Hyodo who wanted a harem, but barring that, a hot girlfriend who put out constantly would do. Woe be it to this man when he finally received his wish, and found that when things seem too good to be true, they almost always are. Suffering from a sucking chest wound inflicted by she whom he thought was to finally fulfill his wish, a vision of crimson loveliness and sublime perfection, a demon to some, but an angel to others, Rias Gremory, she who is sister to the devil himself, comes to his aid. The price for his salvation was his soul, his humanity, and and what could be centuries of service to this blood red vision of beauty. Still, all was not lost, for as he found, he was bound to a dragon of near infinite power, which may be his should he gain the strength to harness it, and his captivity was sweet indeed with his mistress loving him as one would their lover. And should he prove himself worthy, he might even attain a peerage within the ranks of the demons allowing him the chance to amass his harem dreams of youth, though he might find that he already has something far better. All is not sweetness and light, for there is the matter of what killed him. Strange things are moving behind the scenes in the world of gods, demons, and men; and it will be up to him and his fellows to protect each other and their mistress from those that would tear them apart and do them harm.

We're going to be doing a little bit of a two-fer this time around. Ladies vs Butlers and from the makers of Ladies vs. Butlers, Mayo-chiki.

Overview - Ladies vs. Butlers

Akiharu Hino, a scarred and delinquent looking fellow, decides that he no longer wishes to be a burden on his uncle anymore, having lost his parents at an early age, and enrolls Hakureiryō Academy succeeding in passing the test for the House Management Department, where the school trains servants for high society. It is here through a comedy of errors he winds up meeting the two girls who will come to dominate his attention, the firey tsundere Selnia Iori Flameheart and the master troll and childhood friend (who traumatized the living fuck out of him when he was younger) Tomomi Saikyō, thus beginning the wacky hijinks of Ladies vs. Butlers.

Jyu Oh Sei (TV, 2006)

Written by

Overview

It's a slump season, fuck all interesting is playing, I'm drinking a beer, and watching anime I missed out on when it first came out.

Yeah, it's time for another round of "Anime to Avoid." Today's fine example of how to fail at life is a piece of whale shit known as Jyu-Oh-Sei, otherwise known as Planet of the Beast King.

Hang on, I need another beer. You should get one too if you're going to slog through this wretched pile of rotting sewage with me.

Kaze no Stigma (TV, 2007)

Written by

Overview

There once was a young boy by the name of Kazuma Kannagi who was found to have none of the hereditary power of Ejutsu, the ability to control fire, that his entire family wielded. This became a source of constant ridicule, petty (and not so petty) bullying, and constant shame. Eventually this came to its culmination one day in his exile at a very young age after his defeat by a distant relative, Ayano Kannagi, in the bout to decide who would be the heir to the family and wield its family sword, Enraiha and all the power it contained. Weak, broken, and betrayed by those who were supposed to love and care for him, he left to make his own way in the world or die. Several years later he has come home, now going by the name Kazuma Yagami, with a new power, the Fujutsushi; the power to control air. And he is very VERY pissed off.

Seitokai Yakuindomo (TV, 2010)

Written by

Overview


The Ousai Student Council... Suzu's down in the bottom right corner somewhere. I've got a question for the guys out there in the audience. If you, as a teenager, had the chance to attend a formerly all-girls school that was opening its first year of co-education as one of the first – and very, very few – boys, would you jump at the chance? I mean, just think about it… a school with a ratio of, say, 7:1 girls to boys. Can't you just imagine the possibilities? Really, what's the worst that could happen? Just as a… cherry… on top, the campus could even be closer than your current school. Wouldn't that be great? All those beautiful, maturing teenage girls all around you… …If you have any sense, you're running screaming right about now. Unfortunately for Tsuda Takatoshi, he didn't have any sense.

Durarara! (TV, 2010)

Written by

Overview


Every great relationship needs its glue to hold it together. I was actually looking forward to the Winter 2009 season before it started. Omamori Himari, Ookamikakushi, and Dance in the Vampire Bund all looked like likely targets for watching, and there was Halo Legends and the anime adaptation of the game adaptation of Dante's Inferno to look forward to as well. All in all, things were shaping up pretty well; I just needed one more title to round out my list of series. I settled on an oddly named series that looked to have pretty good animation from its promo video called Durarara!!.

Angel Beats (TV, 2010)

Written by

Overview


Y'know, when you start seeing chibis of yourself fighting over the food, it might be time to get a new fridge. A few years ago, I entered the world of Key storytelling through a door named Clannad. An anime series based on a visual novel of the same name, it told the story of Tomoya Ozaki, a boy on the verge of adulthood who was looking forward to his senior year of high school as a well-known delinquent. Not a bad kid, Tomoya, though certainly he'd gotten into his fair share of trouble, often alongside his best friend Sunohara. There was something… uncertain about Tomoya, tenuous, as though he wasn't quite certain what to do with himself. At least, not until he met a girl about his age at the base of the hill leading up to the school, heard her ask a question to nobody in particular, and decided to answer her. It's funny how so small, so simple an exchange can be the difference in everything – and it's a concept that Key excels at exploring, so when I heard that the next Key series was going to be one more fantasy flavored, I noted the name – Angel Beats – down on my to watch list.

Lucky Star (Anime,2007)

Written by

Overview

Lucky Star is a manga and anime series which focuses on the lives of several girls who live in Kasukabe in Saitama Prefecture of Japan and attend a High School called Ryoo. The story typically focuses on its main character Konata Izumi as she interacts with her friends, making observations and conversation about their various interests, each other, and the world around them. Given that Kontata is what can only be classified as an Otaku Surrogate and a not so closet a pervert, these activities, conversations, and observations can get really fun indeed.
