Evergreen

Plot: Yoshimatsu Hotaka lost his father to a congenital heart disease and views himself as a weakling, having inherited the same disease and undergone a surgery that left an awful scar. He uses the manga club anthology to vent his feelings, and, in the meantime, is content with watching Niki Awaya, the girl he has a major crush on, from the club room window. When Hotaka and Niki finally meet for the first time during a swimming test, he has a hard time believing that Niki actually likes him. Pushed on by his friend, On-chan, Hotaka slowly takes the first steps toward befriending Niki -- who he may have more in common with than he could imagine. (There's a pretty good plot being slowly revealed, but something's a little off about the execution. B-)

Characters: B

Art: B

Objectionable Content: fan service, profanity

Other: I haven't finished the series yet, so perhaps I'm jumping the gun on my judgement. There's obviously a big bomb waiting to be dropped on Hotaka, and that part of the story is interesting. But there's something that holds it back from being as good as it could be.

Overall Score: B

Recommendation: 2/5

Orange

Plot: Naho Takamiya is a shy high-school girl with a budding crush on new student, Kakeru Naruse. When she receives a letter from her future self that tells her how to save Kakeru from committing suicide, she is skeptical of its contents. But when the events in her letter begin coming true, she desperately tries to change the future. (Gets a little weird in its attempts to explain its premise, but still high marks for creativity -- A-)

Characters: B+

Artwork & Animation: A-

Voice Acting: A-

Music: B

Objectionable Content: profanity

Other: I've never read the manga that this was adapted from. It's a generally quiet slice-of-life/romance with a light sci-fi premise. It handles both its light, silly moments and its darker dramatic themes very well, making for a nice balance of laughs and tearjerkers.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 3.5/5

Top 5 Underrated Series

I'm sure we all have our series that we wish would get a little more love. These are the little guys that have great stories and characters that no one notices. The ones that are shoved into the background, eclipsed by the big, explosive shonen se...

My Hero Academia (Boku no Hero Academia)

Plot: In this world of heroes, the majority of people develop special powers, or "quirks", in early childhood. But big-hearted Izuku Midoriya has no "quirk". He admires the heroes and aspires to be one. When he meets his hero of heroes, All Might, he finally gets his big chance! (B+)

Artwork & Animation: A-

Voice Acting: A

Music: B+

Objectionable Content: blood, profanity, suggestive themes

Other: I have not read the manga that this anime is based off of. The character designs are rather strange. The story and characters, though, are a real draw.

Bungou Stray Dogs

Plot: Atsushi is an outcast spurned as someone who brings only misfortune to others. When he has no place to go, he stumbles across a man who is attempting suicide and rescues him. That man is Dazai, a member of a special detective agency whose agents all have special abilities. When Atsushi discovers that he has powers of his own, Dazai hires him on as a member of the Armed Detective Agency... (B+)

Characters: B

Artwork & Animation: B

Voice Acting: B+

Music: B

Objectionable Content: Blood, suggestive themes/innuendo, profanity

Other: If you're looking for something a little bit different from the norm, this will probably satisfy you. It's a nice mix of detective story and shonen battle manga.

A couple uncomfortable elements from the manga are really played-up and uncomfortable in the anime, though. (Be ready to fastforward through an extremely stomach turning incest joke in the third ep -- in the book, it didn't seem to be dwelt on to this extent, but I'm taking off points in Recommendation for this.)

Overall Score: B

Recommendation: 2/5
