Tsukuyomi (TV, 2004)

Written by

Overview

Morioka Kohei is a freelance photo journalist who seems to have a problem, in that he can't help but photograph spirits, though generally spiritual energy seems to have very little affect upon him. This leadsto him being contracted quite often by a certain magazine that studies the supernatural, and him flying out to Germany to take photographs of one majorly gothic type castle. Quite quickly he encounters one of its denizens, a young and beautiful girl by the name of Hazuki, who is dressed quite appropriately in EGL. Eventually he convinces her to model a bit for him, though there will be a price involved... which leads to all sorts of extremely surreal happenings, not the least of which he winds up living with, taking care of, and feeding this young girl...the feeding of which is important, as she's actually a vampire.

I, My, Me! Strawberry Eggs (TV, 2001)

Written by

Overview

Now, some people would take one look at the gimmick of this series, and move along to something else, and I suppose that I couldn't blame them. After all, here in the States, cross-dressing is something of a touchy subject, ranging, depending on who you ask, from being just plain weird, to being a sin against God's greater plan. Personally, I'm rather ambivalent about the subject. It's not something I'd do myself, but I've also known a few guys - and one girl, actually - who did it and they never struck me as anything other than normal, albeit with lipstick. For me, I picked it up through a subtitle group, long before it was licensed here in the States, and so had no idea that the rather cute babe on the screen shots was in fact a cross-dressing guy. I'll admit that I probably wouldn't have taken a look if I'd have known - it's not that I'm close minded, just that transvestite-ism isn't my thing. Never the less, I did pick the series up to take a look, and I'm quite glad that I did.

Dragon Pink (OVA, 1994)

Written by

Overview

Well ok, so maybe it's not exactly the newest series out there, but then, I'm old enough to remember when 'Anime' consisted of Speed Racer, Macross, and Go Lion, so I'm entitled to enjoy something that predates today's unending flood of wham-bam-ship'em-man formula hentai. Yes, that's right kiddies, Dragon Pink is an H-Anime, care of the once infamous SoftCell Pictures studio. It came - pardon the expression - before CG replaced hand drawn cels, and before nine out of ten H-anime featured what amounted to the exact same cast with different faces and different camera angles. Now, I realize that that's just the nature of adult entertainment, but it's nice to note that it doesn't always have to be true - and that there can, indeed, be more to adult material than, well... smut.

Ah! My Goddess! (TV, 2005)

Written by

Overview

Folks, lemme take a little break from my usual impatient, rude, and generally pissed off nature, in favor of a side that I've been told that I don't show often enough - the fact that I am, at a certain level, something of a hopeless romantic. A little history for those of you that don't know the series - Ah! My Goddess! is one of the longest running manga series around, centering around a student of Nekomi Tech named Keichi. Our young friend is, unfortunately, something of a hapless fellow. Kind, caring, self-sacrificing and willing to put up with practically anything and just smile through it, he doesn't really have a life of his own. Living in a rock-bottom rent dorm room with the Nekomi Motor Club - a club of misfits if there ever were, K1 - shorthand for Keichi - is doing chores and answering phones for the upperclassmen one night when he gets hungry, and decides to order out.
