Your Lie in April (Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso)

Plot: Kousei Arima was a renowned child pianist. But after the death of his mother, he can no longer play. However, he is dragged back onto the stage when he meets a violinist named Kaori, who puts her heart and soul into her music -- and who just happens to be in love with Kousei's best friend. (B+)

Characters: A-

Artwork & Animation: A

Voice Acting: A-

Music: A-

Objectionable Content: blood, profanity

Other: A heavily psychological and bittersweet love story. My biggest issue with this series was its sense of humor. (Its idea of comedy was Kousei taking a baseball to the head and bleeding all over the floor in episode 1. I didn't find that funny, especially after seeing his backstory.)

I have never read the manga that this anime is based on.

Overall Score: A-

Recommendation: 3/5

March Comes in Like a Lion (Sangatsu no Lion)

Plot: Rei Kiriyama, the adopted son of a famous shogi player, has just struck out on his own after stepping into the professional shogi scene, himself. Alone in a bare-bones apartment and coping with feelings of depression, Rei finds shelter when he visits the warm home of three sisters, Akari, Hina and Momo. (B)

Characters: A-

Artwork & Animation: A-

Voice Acting: A

Music: B

Objectionable Content: some suggestive material

Other: Slightly uneven, with some very good parts and some odd or drawn-out parts (some of the jokes can feel like rambling). The ending is also not really an ending. Other than that, I enjoyed the series.

The anime is based off of a manga series, which I have not read.

Overall Score: A-

Recommendation: 2.5/5

ACCA: 13-Territory Inspection Dept.

Plot: The Dowa kingdom is comprised of 13 fairly autonomous regions united and observed by an organization known as ACCA. Jean is one of the members of ACCA's inspection department. Before he is aware of it, he is suddenly at the heart of some disconcerting rumors regarding a coup d'etat, and now the heads of ACCA are all watching him... (A)

Characters: B

Artwork & Animation: A-

Voice Acting: A

Music: B

Objectionable Content: mild

Other: A stylish, slow-burning political intrigue story with a sense of mystery hanging over most of the series. Because its pace is slow, it's not for everyone; but the payoff is worth your patience.

The series is based off of a manga series, which I have not read.

Overall Score: A-

Recommendation: 2.5/5

Trickster

Plot: Yoshio Kobayashi, a boy protected by an invincible shield-like power that he can't control, is unable to die and a danger to those around him. Kensuke Hanasaki is a member of the Boy Detectives Club. Intrigued by Kobayashi's abilities, Hanasaki invites the young misanthrope to join the club by striking a deal with him: he'll help Kobayashi find a way to die if Kobayashi still can't find a reason to live. (Execution is shabby -- C-)

Characters: Definitely the series' weakest point. Focuses too much on side characters and fails to satisfactorily develop its central cast. -- D+

Artwork & Animation: A-

Voice Acting: B

Music: B

Objectionable Content: suggestive themes, blood, profanity

Other: It takes place in a cool world, and the potential is there for a good story. But the characters can sometimes be grating, and the plot is poorly handled.

Overall Score: C

Recommendation: 1.5/5

Kuromukuro

Plot: When the ogres attacked over 400 years ago, a samurai named Kennosuke Tokisada Ouma and the princess of the Washiba fought back with a stolen mecha dubbed "Kuromukuro".
Now, the ogres are back. The first line of defense against the alien mecha is a special organization of UN scientists, who are researching a relic found at the Kurobe Dam. The daughter of the research director, Yukina Shirahane, is at Kurobe when the ogres attack and accidentally activates the relic. Kennosuke emerges, and, mistaking Yukina for his princess, fights off the ogres to protect her. Through an odd turn of events, Yukina becomes bonded to the Kuromukuro, and with Kennosuke's knowledge of the ogres, they are able to fight back. But can the samurai, displaced from his time, be trusted? (A-)

Characters: B

Artwork & Animation: Absolutely GORGEOUS backgrounds! -- A

Voice Acting: A-

Music: B

Objectionable Content: blood, suggestive themes, profanity

Other: This was a bit more complex than what I could go into here. The series has a satisfying storyline, and watching Kennosuke try to acclimate to his new surroundings is a lot of fun.

Overall Score: A-

Recommendation: 2.5/5
