Air (TV) Good (+) Gorgeous and fluid animation, beautiful soundtrack, Misuzu is super moe ("Nyahaha" is something you'll never forget), moe, immersive and strong plot, OP is amazing both song and animation-wise

(-) Gets bogged down by a severe lack of focus (in other words: is it really about Misuzu when it's focusing on others for more than half the series?), the "tear-jerker" parts were not that particularly grabbing to me (and there were many of them), boring at times IMO

Aishiteruze Baby (TV) Good (+) It's cute, male lead isn't a wimp and is also a very down-to-earth character, strong character development (even in the minor characters), nostalgic in a way

(-) Lackluster animation, weak voice acting, some parts weren't all that interesting

Azumanga Daioh (TV) Good (+) Cute (Chiyo-chaaan!), funny (especially the rather unique imaginiation of some of the girls), large cast of unique and lovable characters

(-) It's pretty much 26 episodes of short mini-stories and doesn't have a continuative storyline, there's no main male character other than the perverted Kimura-sensei (which means no ecchi or romance whatsoever...none at all...)

Battle Royale (live-action movie) Decent (+) Unique premise, a lot of bloody action and violence, exciting and keeps you on the edge of your chair, good acting

(-) Apparently a highly condensed version of the original novel, ending was a cop out

BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad (TV) Good (+) A unique and interesting plot, main lead who really has the motivation to get somewhere, interesting and...good soundtrack, relaxed voice acting (in a good way), animation is pretty good, tells a good bit of the manga story and cuts off at a good place

(-) ENGRISH! While it may not seem like a big deal, it was highly detrimental to my viewing pleasure.

Berserk (TV) Very good (+) Wonderful fantasy setting, well-developed characters, fights are done pretty well, entertaining plot, Griffith is a very enchanting character

(-) Ending was ambiguous and unsatisfying, Guts' "fight fight fight!" attitude makes him rather hard to sympathize with at times

Black Lagoon (TV)
Black Lagoon: The Second Barrage (TV)
Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-chan (TV) Good (+) Beat-to-death ecchi angels like Dokuro-chan are pure hotness, really funny and random at times, parodies other anime, ended before it got too repetitive

(-) very crude humor sometimes (more like a great deal of the time), the plot (if there really is any) is pretty stupid

Boogiepop Phantom (TV) Very good (+) Unique non-linear plot that jumps around, intriguing and keeps you yearning to piece together the pieces of the puzzle

(-) Animation is...not l, many won't appreciate the non-linear nonesnsical plot that completely mixes up the chronological order

Enjoyment: [66/100]
Quality: [91/100]

Overall:[83/100]
Burst Angel (TV) Not really good (+) Animation was pretty good, attractive fights, hot girls, shoujo-ai!?, a select few episodes were entertaining

(-) Plot had potential but went to complete and utter hell, almost all filler, main male lead is neglected completely after the first few episodes, forced and fabricated character development, really cheesy and predicatable.

Chobits (TV) Good (+) Chii is really cute and is voiced by a great seiyuu, viewer is able to sympathize with Motosuwa and his poor college student life, the viewer can really feel a sense of development as Chii gradually goes from a robot that can only say "Chi" to almost human-like, fun and entertaining to watch while getting a few laughs along the way, well-developed characters, plot gets interesting toward the end

(-) The very end was...not so great, not that much happens plotwise (in other words, a lot of filler/stand-alone episodes), excessive ecchi drags the plot down

Elfen Lied (TV) Good (+) Character designs were done well, strong character development for Lucy (by means of flashback), ended fairly well, plot was enjoyable for the most part

(-) Nyuu is lame and sometimes quite irritating, Yuka (sp?) is really posessive, animation is mediocre, although it was entertaining the everything felt overly simplistic for a series of its tone and atmosphere

Full Metal Panic! (TV) Very good (+) Great animation, great soundtrack, good for comedy + laughs (a battle-hardened soldier in a high school...), good for some great mecha action, eccentric and well-voiced main female lead

(-) Not good for comedy + laughs AND mecha action (i.e. cannot decide which it wants to be), serious pacing issues, the "serious" part is not all that interesting

Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid (TV) Excellent (+) Lolicest twins, strong character development, some romance tossed into the mix (finally!), great animation and great music like always, "serious" plotline actually makes sense and is very interesting this time, a very...interesting and sadistic villain, is "edge-of-your-chair" exciting

(-) Many things are not fully explained

Fullmetal Alchemist (TV) Very good (+) Solid plotline, good music, good animation, characters were pretty well developed, tear-jerkers and philosophical elements galore, an immersive and believable world

(-) Dragged on longer than it should have, felt too broken and incohesive, tear-jerks and philosophical elements are outdone by MANY other anime out there, not particularly grabbing if you don't take it as seriously as it takes itself

Overall:[72/100]
Futakoi Alternative (TV) Good (+) Original, pretty darned funny, good action in the beginning, Sara and Sonju are teh awesome, Rentarou is a pretty good male lead, soundtrack was really good, wonderful atmosphere set

(-) Although soundtrack was good, it really did NOT fit the tone of the series, incoherent, all the crazy action in the beginning is traded off for a lackluster Kurogane twins/Rentarou angstfest toward the latter half of the series

Honey and Clover II (TV)
Hunter X Hunter (TV) Excellent (+) One of the most innovative plotlines of any shounen series, interesting and lovable characters, themes of friendship are done in a tasteful way, villains are really badass and cool, some of the best filler ever to be shown in a shounen series

Kino's Journey (TV) Masterpiece (+) A slow-moving and relaxing approach of countering stereotypes and problems with society, great animation, great relaxing soundtrack, wonderful plot which can be both entertaining and hold meaning at a much deeper level, fascinating characters who have vibrant personalities underneath a somewhat dull exterior, wonderfully thought out situations and happenings throughout each country visited with deeper meaning and symbolism, opening and ending theme are both wonderful

(-) A few small arcs in a few episodes were not the most interesting.
