Lets hope this topic works. Okay pretty straight forward. Review an anime that you'd like the club to watch or just discuss a loved anime and how it made you feel.

Since I have like a two hour break before tutorial at 10AM, I might as well waste time by writing a quick review. xp

K-ON: In essence, the series revolves around the daily lives of five girls... having fun (no, not that kind of "fun"). The premise of the show is music; however, there's not much emphasis on the music aspect unlike shows such as Nodame Cantabile and Beck. Like I said before, the anime pretty much accentuates the main theme of "having fun". So if you're expecting the show to go beyond 'music', you may be disapointed. That's not to say it's a bad thing, it just really depends on your prior expectations. The show at heart is a light-hearted comedy with tons of slice of life action + music.

Yes, the show is filled with random moments and humour, and is seriously enjoyable to watch if you're looking for something light and interesting. As described by my friend, "it's simply fun to watch... and it also makes me feel happy!".

Oh, and the show kind of makes you reflect "I wasted my high school life..." Smile

Samurai Champloo follows the story of Fuu who is on an quest to find the mysterious Samurai who smells of Sunflowers. After Helping Mugen and Jin escape execution they both agree to join in on the adventure. This anime is set in old Japan with modern themes and references, some of which include hip hop, rapping, graffiti and gangstas. There are plenty of amazing battles and styles of fighting along with some great music to accompany. This anime is only 26 episode long and definitely worth the watch. Produced in 2004 I'm sure you've all seen it. It is one of my all-time favs. I didn't give alot away so this review maybe a little dull.
It's also multi-genre so pretty much everyone can enjoy it.
Also from the creator of Cowboy Bebop

Umineko no Naku koro ni (English title: When Seagulls Cry or When They Cry 3: Welcome to Rokkenjima)
This is an ongoing series, up to Episode 9 and is based on a game and soft visual novel. The genres this anime fits into fantasy, horror and mystery. It is a supposed spin-off of an anime of a similar title: Higurashi, but so far, not much similarities besides some of the same characters appearing, game resettingand the murder mystery.
Umineko is about the Ushiromiya family, who every year have to travel to Rokkenjima Island, in which their oldest heir, Kinzo resides in the family mansion. While the children mainly find this time for socialising, the parents (sons and daughter of Kinzo) use this opportunity to discuss about financial matters (aka, waiting for Kinzo to die and splitting the inheritance with each other). One thing stands in their way, Beatrice. She was appointed as Kinzo's alchemic advisor but not much is known about her. The family have heard rumors that she was the person who had given Kinzo a large amount of gold when the Ushiromiya family was in ruin. When a typhoon rolls in, and traps everyone on the island, the murders and disappearances occur. Battler, the main character, attempts to find the perpetrator by using his intellect and rational reasoning. However, he denies the existence of anything out of the ordinary. The anime is a mind game between Beatrice (the Golden Witch) and Battler, who is stubborn and even denies that the murders were committed by the witch. It's a bit gory, and disgusting once you think about it..but eh, just graphic violence! (don't get the wrong idea!)
They both try to explain how mysteries can happen, from closed room murders to devil's proof (lack of evidence). It may seem boring at first, but now (second arc) is getting much more interesting, as Battler still refuses to think that magic is a part of it. <.< So many spoilers, and my lack of explaining things...you just have to see for yourself! P.S I love Bernkastel! cat

A review of my current fave series.
Axis Powers Hetalia.
APH was originally a web comic created by Hidekaz Himaruya. It was later adapted into a manga and anime (only available online though). Each character is a personified version of one of the world's nations and is a satirised version of the events which occurred between WWI and WWII. It also features other historical events prior to WWI.

Historical interactions are represented in different ways. An alliance is like a friendship, e.g. the Axis Powers - Germany, Italy and Japan. A union is like a marriage, e.g. the Austro-Hungarian union.

Unlike most anime, each episode is only 5 minutes long. It is currently in the middle of the Season 2.

I would recommend this to anyone who likes something that will make them laugh. I don't believe you have to really like history to enjoy it - but it's probably an added bonus.

((Lol this is my current fandom, alongside KHR!))

Baka to Test to Shokanjuu (English translation: Idiots and Tests and Summoned Beings)
Ongoing series, now awaiting Episode Six (13 episode series), if you are looking for an anime that is so hilarious, over-the-top and kinda cheesy, you have to watch this.

At first I wasn't sure if I should watch it since they were chibi charas (got turned off by Shugo Chara) but once I learnt of the storyline, now I just can't wait for each episode.

It's about an education system, where your grades and the test results you receive become your attack points and determine which class you are. So what you get in your entrance exam, determines whether you are in Class A or Class F. The main characters use this to battle it out with other classes to gain better facilities since they are in Class F (go for the underdog!). The characters are so funny, you will find at least one person as your favourite.

Akihasa Yoshi is the protagonist, the idiot of the class and his main aim is to get a better classroom for his love, Mizuki Himeji whose health is supposedly delicate. Himeji is the smartest student of the class, and was meant to go to Class A, with her high grades, but in the entrance exam, she collapsed due to a fever and had to leave. Minami Shimada came from overseas, before living in Japan, isn't good at reading kanji, but her grades with Maths is at Class B level. She is the typical tsundere, unable to express her feelings for Akihisa, but is still friendly with Himeji despite being love rivals. Yuuji Sakamoto is a cool sort of guy and is Class F's representative, and is forcibly attached to Shoko Kirishima, class A's rep.

Hideyoshi Kinoshita is a bishounen (lol) and since he looks so similar to his twin sister Yuko in Class A, everyone likes thinking that he is a girl and is often used for fanservice. Kouta Tsuchiya is a pervert, armed with a camera, always trying to get the perfect shot. He has epic nosebleeds and it is no surprise that his best subject is Health, especially about the female body.

So whether you like Yoshi-kun for his hopeless stupidity, Himeji for her cuteness or even Kouta's attempts at not being depressing, this is definitely a series to watch! The animation quality is superb, there is not a single fault and remains consistent, full of bright colours and special effects modelled like an rpg (since their battle system is called ESB- Electronic Summoning Battle) and even have scenes where there is commentary or maps and other icons.



Example of battle pic
Spoiler:
 

One of the yaoi jokes (there are lots of harem, yuri, yaoi and trap jokes), of a likely pairing!
Spoiler:
 

Verdict: 4/5 Pretty good, though the plot is a bit cheesy and starting to be repetitive so that is probably why it is going to last for 13 episodes. I am going to enjoy this as much as I can before it is over.

Lol, I finally managed to download all the current episodes for Baka/Test today, since all of the series I was watching are now out of the way. Loving this anime so far along with Nodame Cantabile!

Wow, just wow! The Fate Stay Night movie based on the Unlimited Blade Works route is great! Even though the movie was just under 2 hours, I enjoyed it a great deal and would say that it's on par with the anime series. Studio Deen did a fantastic job with the movie!

And oh, if you've seen Gundam 00, you'll probably notice that the Fate Stay Night movie OST will sound very familiar haha.

In an effort to increase my post numbers (I want to get to 450), I think I might review some of my fave series as well as ones that I just liked a lot, or find easy to review.
(No actual spoilers as far as I know, just tagging to take up less space.)

Kare Kano
It's and old one, but it's good.
Spoiler:
 

Toradora
Spoiler:
 

B Gata H Kei
Not actually a fave, but it's really quite funny. It's got a lot of ecchi situations, so if you don't like that kind of thing I'd stay away from it.

Another manga review:
Title: Hōkago No Charisma (Afterschool Charisma)
Mangaka: Suekane Kimiko
Year: 2008-?
Genre: Mystery, Seinen
Summary (from Viz):
"History repeats itself... Or does it? St. Kleio Academy is a very exclusive school: all of the students are clones of famous historical figures such as Beethoven, Queen Elizabeth I, Napoleon, Mozart, and Freud. All of them, that is, except for Shiro Kamiya. As Shiro struggles to adapt to this unusual campus, St. Kleio's first graduate, a clone of John F. Kennedy, is killed. Are the clones doomed to repeat the fate of their genetic progenitors, or can they create their own destinies? And how does a normal boy like Shiro fit in?"

The characters are awesome.
