The whole episode rocked!!!! I loved the little evil dolls but I can't say much about it otherwise I'll spoil it for you. So, if you watched the 1st episode and thought SCREW this I'm not watching the next one-----DON'T GIVE UP on it just yet. Episode 3 was thrilling and dark and I must admit a little frightening for a scaredy cat like MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE :) I might be getting excited prematurely BUT I'm continuing this one, Yahooo.O

The story so far is slightly ambiguous but the main character is Oz Bezarius, who appears to be a rich kid living a life without his father---lack of friends except his house servants!!!! His 15 years of age and is about to have his coming of age ceremony. There is a prophecy about the chosen one causing a clock that has stood still for years to CHIME....ding ding---means let's do the damn thing!!! Well, in this case it does----the bell strikes and all of a sudden people are trying to kill the BOY. They attempt to throw him into the abyss but he is saved by a mysterious chain known as an Alice, who can turn into a giant bunny ---sounds a bit Alice in Wonderland.
So, what am i saying about this one---I'm intrigued---i want to know what is this prophecy, will it be fulfilled ---can the heir change his supposed predestined future, who the hell is the bunny and just what the hell is going on!!!! If you like fantasy fiction, action and i guess a slow to medium type pace then you might enjoy this anime.
Here is the trailer!!!!!!

This anime has an eerie feel to it and I hope it pulls ot off. It appears to be about some sort of organisation that carries out assassinations using people called Phantoms. The girl is called Ein and she appears to have been part of this mysterious organisation of trained assassins but the guy was unfortunate. He seems to have been picked up and been used in some sort of experiment as he has no recollection of who he is BUT he is an object of admiration to the people behind this organisation. He has been given the name Zwei and it seems he has been given the unwanted task of working for this organisation who have deemed him some sort of prodigy!!!!!!
All I say of this one is that I will continue to watch BUT the action scenes seem cool and I like the eerieness of the atmosphere when watchin this one.
Watch the trailer and decide if it's for you :)

So, basically, the story is about some seven kids who end up in a digital world where there are these strange creatures called Digimon! Each of the kids gets a unique Digimon which can evolved to different forms using a device called a Digivice. And if I remember right, they try to find a way to get to their real world and fight against the evil forces that are in this world!
Yeah, it seems kinda kiddy but I still think its awesome cause everytime I watch Digimon, brings back good memories!
So hope you try this anime! ^^
I'll put up a video later! Couldnt find a proper Digimon vid with embedding allowed! =.=
Well, I've only watched one episode (downloading the second one) but have already found more suprises than I usually find in a 12 or 26 episode anime! LOL
The first of it was the total exposure of the upper body it shows. I mean they totally show the characters topless! And strong warriors battle against each other and the most beautiful and strongest becomes queen. Atleast thats what I know. And Leina, a princess who takes part in this competition.
Here's what ANN says, maybe it'll help:
"In 4 years time the competition that will decide who the next Queen shall be will start. The strongest warrior will continue to rule the country according to tradition and expand it. The contestants need only be older than 12 years. They need not be human, intelligent or even of that country. The rules for the tournament are simple: murder is allowed. Any weapon can be chosen. The winner is decided when one of the participants flees or can't move anymore. Such event is broadcasted trough a crystal sphere by the court's magic teacher to all population to see and enjoy."
So, hope that I gave enough delicious (:P) info about the anime for you to start watching! ^^
The story is set in a future where global warming has taken full effect on the planet's composition and Tokyo is no longer the city it was ---NO---it is now a jungle-polis. It has been taken over by greenery and it absorbs carbon dioxide which appears to make it a powerful possession in a world overridden by carbon dioxide!!! This is one of the reasons why I think I'm going to love this anime----i guess i just love science fiction:) The society appears to be split in two being the ones that live in the tower city and the ones that dream of living there. One girl, Kuniko Hojo and her rebel army appear to what to change things and I for one hope they do BUT we have 23 episodes to see if this can be achieved. I hope she can pull it off!!!!!

I've been waiting to watch more of Full Metal Alchemist (FMA) since i completed the series. It was such a brilliant anime and I think anyone who watched it would have high expectations of FMA 2. But I must admit when I watched the first episode I wasn't overly impressed and maybe this has something to do with my HIGH EXPECTATIONS. I didn't know what to expect in the first episode and I was a bit unclear about what was going on. But now I know that this series is following the Manga as opposed to the first anime that strayed away from the Manga. Maybe when I watch the second episode I will be less confused!!!! @.@
Although, the first episode has some great action scenes and I love when Edward gets annoyed at being called CHIBI CHIBI, so cutes!!!! I will be watching the series and now that I've seen the first episode I'm sure it'll get better and better. The opening and ending themes were awesome but at this point am unsure who they are by????

Before I go any further I must warn you that this anime contains SOME MATERIAL THAT VIEWERS may find DISTURBING!!!! This picture might warn you of that fact so if you only like really adorable type animes with lots of stars and pornographic sounding noises (you know what i mean---right?) than Elfen Lied isn't for you. Well actually that might not be 100% accurate. I will explain...hmmmmmmmmm
The main character in this anime is Lucy and Nyuu who are both the same person---SEE---we are already in a different scenario. Lucy appears to be a normal human being except she has what appears to be cat ears but they are referred to as horns, which marks her out to be a Diclonius!!! This difference in appearance causes fear to build up in supposedly normal humans and consequently they are slammed into the government laboratory for CRUEL EXPERIMENTATION.
The moment you watch this anime and if you manage to watch all of episode 1 ---I personally think you will watch the other 12 episodes. I won't go too much into the details of the anime but if you like blood, violence, serious social issues---homelessness, child abuse, bullying---Elfen Lied might just be for you. I feel it covers the whole Nature Vs Nurture issue and I couldn't help sympathise with Lucy who no matter what was also the very cute Nyuu.
The opening music also sets the scene of this anime and it is the only opening song in any anime that I've watched to date that is in LATIN!!!!! The anime has a nice pace, great story and brilliant action and I would say this --YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED:)
If the trailer appeals to you----WATCH ELFEN LIED :)

Well, late is better than never!!! So if I kept you waiting what can I say---I mean that word you might be expecting will take an awfully long time to arrive so here are the new anime airing today and tomorrow! I did try my best to find the trailers for them but I couldn’t find all of them ---GOMEN.

While the premise is similar to the original TV show, the staff insist that it is not a remake or sequel and that it will develop into an all-new story, as seen in the cast of characters which features many new faces. There is also a significant number of characters and mecha from other Go Nagai series, such as Zeus from Z Mazinger and the titular mecha of Groizer X.

I don't wish to reveal too much about the plot so far and i also don't want to BORE you with all the silly terminology used in the anime. What i will say is this--- so far after watching 10 episodes I have seen plenty action, cool characters, great music and the story is definitely interesting!!! At the moment i don't know the direction the story will take---the plot still hasn't been fully revealed to me. But I'm intrigued and I'm far from BORED and I want to watch the remaining 14 episodes. So if you fancy watching this anime---I'll post the summary and leave you with the trailer.
Plot Summary: Sakai Yuuji, a high school student who expected his normal life to last forever, is dead. When he was on his way home he witnessed a shocking view as the world suddenly froze: people were engulfed by blue flames and a monster resembling a large doll swallowed them. Just as the monster prepared to consume Yuuji, a sword-wielding girl in black attire with flaming red eyes and hair that burns like embers saved him from the monster. The girl called herself a "Flame Haze" who hunts the "Guze no Tomogara", creatures from another world. As Yuuji noticed a blue flame in his chest, she called him a "Torch", a temporary replacement, saying that the "real" Yuuji's existence had already ended. Unfazed, Yuuji befriended the strange girl, named her "Shana", and joined her fight against Tomogara and other Flame Hazes.
WATCH OUT FOR THE UPDATE!!!!!
