Buddy Complex

Plot: When Aoba is attacked by a giant mech, a mysterious girl named Hina saves him and sends him 70 years into the future. Aoba emerges in the middle of a war, and he inadvertently becomes the pilot of one of the army's new mechs, which must be paired with a "buddy" to unlock its special abilities. Aoba gets off on the wrong foot with Dio, the pilot of the buddy mech, and if he's going to find a way to get back to the past, he'll have to figure out how to survive in the future first... (B+)

Characters: B

Art & Animation: A

Voice Acting: A-

Music: B-

Objectionable Content: blood, profanity

Other: The characters aren't anything too special, and the plot is a lot like Gundam, minus the time travel aspect and the coupling mecha. But it's still an enjoyable show.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 2.5/5

MAOH: Juvenile Remix

Plot: Nekota city is facing crisis as big corporations try to move in with a "restoration" project. Hoodlums run wild, and amidst the chaos, a vigilante group known as Grasshopper arises. In the meantime, a normal teen-aged boy named Ando has just discovered that he has the ability to make others vocalize his thoughts -- and when Ando discovers the horrible truth behind Grasshopper and its leader, Inukai, he decides to face them with his newfound power. (A-)

Characters: B

Artwork: B-

Objectionable Content: blood, profanity, suggestive themes/fan service

Other: A manga with an odd style and an interesting concept. As the plot progresses, however, the developments are fairly anticlimactic -- it's really less than satisfying.

Overall Score: B-

Recommendation: 1.5/5

Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii

Plot: Princess Nike of the Rain Dukedom is engaged to Livius, king of the Sun Kingdom, for a political marriage. But she's in for a surprise when she finds that the fearsome king who took over the world in only three years is still a child -- and his first request of her is to use her ability to summon rain! (Not too original, but still enjoyable -- B)

Characters: A

Art & Animation: B+

Voice Acting: A-

Music: A bit overbearing at times (B)

Objectionable Content: Mild blood, profanity, suggestive themes

Other: The title translates to "Even So, the World is Still Beautiful." The manga has a similar flavor to titles like "Dawn of the Arcana", "The Story of Saiunkoku" and "Akagami no Shirayukihime".

The anime version just aired! They're changing it up a little, so we'll see what they do with it.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 3.5/5

Isshukan Friends (One-Week Friends)

Plot: Kaori Fujimiya has an odd problem: the memories of her friends disappear after one week. Even so, Yuuki Hase wants to make friends with her. (Points for something a bit different -- B)

Characters: B

Art & Animation: A

Voice Acting: A-

Music: A-

Objectionable Content: Mild

Other: The thing about the manga that takes the most getting used to is that it switches between a traditional layout and a 4-panel layout.

The anime version just aired, and they're really doing a good job with it!

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 2.5/5

Skip Beat

Plot: Kyoko Mogami has always supported her childhood infatuation, Sho, on his road to stardom. But as soon as he hits it big in show-biz, he ditches her. To get revenge, Kyoko goes into show-biz, herself, vowing to beat Sho and make him acknowledge her. (C+)

Characters: Enter, hilarity! (A)

Art & Animation: B+

Voice Acting: A-

Music: B

Objectionable Content: Profanity, suggestive themes

Other: That premise. That dumb synopsis. I left this book on a shelf after seeing it at a book sale. Years later, at someone's recommendation, I have seen the anime and am reading the manga -- and I LOVE it. There's no way you can walk away from reading/watching Skip Beat without laughing at least once. And there's more to the story than that stupid synopsis lets on.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 3.5/5
