Ah My Buddha (TV)
Ai Yori Aoshi (TV) Decent (+) Strong beginning, adequate animation, cute female lead, strong male lead, somewhat entertaining, strong seiyuu

(-) Becomes a wholly unrealistic harem, the romance seems "too easy"; too "perfect"; not really interesting, a formulaic "Aoi x Kaoru" moment at the end almost every single episode where nearly the same thing occurs

[Have seen Ep 1-15]
Air Gear (TV) Very good (+)Extremely attractive girls, pretty visuals, show picks up fast after around Ep 6 and becomes something entertaining and worthwhile, music is amazing and really helps the "feel" of the show, ED animation is stunning

(-)Series completely sucks until Ep 6, ending was a cop-out

[Have seen ALL]

Kage kara Mamoru! (TV) Decent
Kämpfer (TV) Excellent
Kanon (TV 2/2006) Excellent (+)Animation is beautiful, authenticity of the original game is for the most part preserved, thoughtful and thoroughly enjoyable storyline, seiyuu work is good, great technical aspects paired with a wonderful story makes for a very immersive world to be entrenched into.

(-)A feel of "animating a game" at times (unsmooth transitions, a few awkward dialogue scenes, etc.), seiyuu casting, although quite good, is, in my opinion, slightly inferior to the original in terms of fitting the characters' personalities
Karin (TV) Not really good (+) Plot is somewhat original

Kaze no Stigma (TV)
Kono Aozora ni Yakusoku o - Yōkoso Tsugumi Ryōhe (TV)

Tenshi na Konamaiki (TV) Good (+) Comedical, "guy turns into girl" is done pretty well, voice acting was pretty good (Hayashibara Megumi as...Megumi!), entertaining with all the crazy gimmicks that are so stupid they're funny, characters are generally pretty entertaining to watch as they carry on with their silly antics
