Uchouten Kazoku – The Eccentric Family is drama and comedy driven anime series with a very simple point to make: No matter what, every family is a little dysfunctional. Even that of the mythical variety. Why? Because it is a manifestation of our idiot blood.
Two protagonists, one common goal.
Sankarea is impressive on the merits of its story alone and that makes it a good series overall. It is shame that though that the “good” could have been “great”, if it only tried a little harder to hold it all together.
Zettai Bouei Leviathan is nothing more than cute dragon girls doing cute dragon girl things to save the world. And honestly, I am oddly okay with that…
Suisei no Gargantia is a science fiction series not about space aliens or a technological regressed Earth, but rather about rediscovery. It’s about rediscovering humanity, self, and life and one of many things that make it such a palatable title in spite of its many shortcomings.
One Off may not be what I consider Junichi Sato’s best work, but it certainly might make you feel better and slightly motivated by the time you finish. There is also some product placement for Honda nestled inside, but you don’t have to focus on that if you don’t want to.

A blending of the mahou-shoujou genre and dualistic underpinnings of life makes Uta Kata like how a good cake should be: appealing on the surface, yet flavorful and sweet underneath.
