The List - 7 Mostly Harmless Dirty Old Men Dirty old men are a dime a dozen in anime, but at some point, an unspoken rule was established that the level of perversion is greater than or equal to grandpa's fighting prowess.
HENNEKO Episodes 1-7 Streaming A kind of modern moe fairy tale where characters are built from prefab personality traits that can be swapped in and out like customizable car parts. Surprisingly fun, actually.
The Last of Us The Last of Us is about the thick skin we've built for ourselves and, underneath that, the places where we secret our hurt.
Lagrange: The Flower of Rin-ne Blu-Ray This first season is unlikely to blow anyone away, as it is competent in most respects but neither exceptional nor original in any of them, except perhaps in casting the mecha battles as pretty boys on one side vs. cute/sexy girls on the other.
Remember Me Underneath all the explosive polygons and proper nouns, Remember Me is a game that has no idea what it's actually about.
Tiger & Bunny Blu-Ray 2 Interesting character developments and comic book-style twists are the norm in this generally fun second half. Some may find the plot twists to be irksome, but they don't keep it from being entertaining.
Jormungand GN 11 The ending of Jormungand has something important to say ... but never figures out the actual message.
Sunny GN 1 Sunny is an interesting glimpse into the lives of children who feel that the world has forsaken them and how they manage to cope with the help of an old car and a little imagination.
Missions of Love GN 2 Ultimately Missions of Love still reads like a sexy book for middle schoolers. Yukina is far from a likeable heroine, neither Shigure nor Akira come off as particularly desirable male leads, and the less savory elements of the story detract from its romance components.
Dengeki Daisy GN 11 Dengeki Daisy began as a romance with some computer crimes thrown in and has morphed into an action story with some romance thrown in. What remains true, however, is that Kyousuke Motomi has created an interesting, fun story with memorable characters who do their best, whether it's for good or ill.
Peepo Choo GN 3 This final volume doesn't make up for the series' often slapdash execution, but it does bring Peepo Choo's stronger points to a predominantly satisfying finish by continuing to explore the culture shock they share.
