The Seven Deadly Sins (Nanatsu no Taizai)

Plot: When the kingdom of Britannia is taken over by the Holy Knights who were supposed to protect it, Princess Elizabeth seeks the aid of the Seven Deadly Sins -- evil knights who were said to have tried to overthrow the kingdom in the past and were supposedly eliminated... (A)

Characters: A

Art & Animation: A-

Voice Acting: A

Music: B

Objectionable Content: Blood, sexual innuendo/fan service, profanity

Other: Based on a manga of the same name. I'd heard good things about it and was curious to give it a try.

The anime is fun and has a good story and good characters, but it can go a bit far with the blood and fan service at times.

Overall Score: A-

Recommendation: 2.5/5

Akatsuki no Yona (Yona of the Dawn)

Plot: The kingdom of Kouka is at peace until Princess Yona's beloved cousin, Soo-won, kills the king and seizes the throne. The shell-shocked princess suddenly has to flee for her life with her bodyguard, Hak, and Soo-won's followers are never far behind... (A-)

Characters: A-

Art & Animation: A-

Voice Acting: A-

Music: B+

Objectionable Content: Blood, profanity, innuendo/suggestive themes

Other: This is based on a manga of the same name, which I have only read a little bit of. So far as I can tell, the plot of the anime follows pretty closely.

Yona is mostly a drama/romance, but has some well-timed comedy to keep it from being too dark.

Overall Score: A-

Recommendation: 3/5

World Trigger

Plot: A gate to a different world appeared in Mikado city. In order to combat the "Neighbors" who poured through and attacked, an organization called Border was established that uses special technology against the invaders. Osamu Mikumo is an agent-in-training of the Border defense agency. When he tries to protect his classmates from an attacking Neighbor, a transfer student named Yuma Kuga jumps in and saves him and reveals that he himself is a neighbor... (B+)

Characters: A-

Art & Animation: Animation can be surprisingly lazy (especially apparent in the first episode's opening exposition), and background art can be sloppy at times as well -- B-

Voice Acting: A

Music: B

Objectionable Content: profanity, mild blood

Other: There is also a manga. The adaptation follows pretty closely thus far.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 2.5/5

The Irregular at Magic High School (Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei)

Plot: In a world where "magic" is now quantified and used by means of technology, the magicians' powers are honed in special schools. Tatsuya and Miyuki Shiba have just enrolled in Private Magic University Affiliated High School. Miyuki is grouped with the elite in Course 1, while Tatsuya, due to his low test scores, is placed in Course 2 and treated as inferior. But he has a few secrets tucked away that will impact not only the school, but maybe even the country... (An interesting premise, but segments of the story drag while important questions remain unanswered. -- B-)

Characters: B-

Art & Animation: A

Voice Acting: A-

Music: A-

Objectionable Content: Blood, innuendo/fan service, profanity

Other: I personally wasn't very attached to the cast, and as the series goes on, it gets surprisingly bloody.

Like many other anime recently, this one is adapted from a light novel. I've never read the light novel or manga versions.

Overall Score: B

Recommendation: 2/5

Characters: B+

Artwork: B

Objectionable Content: Blood, profanity

Other: It's an interesting premise, and so far, it's being handled well. It helps that it has its fun moments, too.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 2.5/5
