Rules:

A paragraph about what you just watched, especially the newer shows, busy people might want to watch but not waste time.

Should at least a sentence about Music, Production Values, Character Design, Plot Flow(not summary, but where does it go in genre or emotion throughout). And their control in using these aspects(or total lack thereof...)

Try to mind spoilers...
Also quote the bastard who states a crap show as good, and vice-versa. NO MERCY! As you gently point out the flaws with their review.(while slapping their guts in their stupid mugs )

Also, anything else that comes to mind that would make someone looking for a show watch it.

Just finished Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann myself, but too tired to think anymore. Do that later.

Also what rating system to use? I prefer 1 star =Atrocious, 2 = Remake, 3 = Average TV, 4 = I'd watch this again, and 5 = I'd do (horrible)things so I could keep this in existence, if it were so threatened...
Some people prefer Alphabet...meh.

Don't really know why we don't have a popular review thread...

In for Strike Witches

Strike Witches
501st JOINT FIGHTER WING



As much as I like Strike Witches, from a critics point of view, it doesn't deserve a 9/10. One of the flaws that is common to many series is the imbalance in genre focus. In other words, it does not balance comedy, action, and drama very well. The comedic parts were enjoyable and funny, but the action scenes were a bit lacking in excitement and a bit repetitive (I guess opinions will vary between people).

Since the show was only 13 episodes long, the characters did not have much depth in them. Following the pattern of focusing a single episode on a single girl did give more knowledge about that character, but let's face it. We know Miyafuji way better than we do Luccini.

Artwork is something I don't usually take into account, so won't I talk about it. It's fine. The panties idea was genius though. I took it as a joke from the producers, so it was humorous to me. Especially when I realized ALL the girls were in panties, not just the witches (Miyafuji's mom and grandma are exceptions. We wouldn't want to see that...).

Story was average. Not very original or deep. But what can you expect from a 13 episoder? An exceptional story is hard to find in short series. Of course, I won't go into depth lest I spoil something.

Just my few cents.

Aishiteruze Baby

is a Japanese manga series created by Yoko Maki, which was serialized in Ribon. It was adapted into an anime series, which was produced by TMS Entertainment and Animax. The series ran from April 3, 2004 to October 9, 2004.


I like it...

Maybe because when I first saw the characters it intrigue me, and when I finally watched it the story flow was great, all I can say was "I really love this anime………" and yuzuyu is really kawaii..........

characters

Kippei Katakura (片倉 結平, Katakura Kippei?)
Voiced by: Daisuke Fujita
Kippei is quite the easygoing type and had no idea what hit him when he was told to start taking care of Yuzuyu. At his first attempt to make Yuzuyu's lunch, he only made one extra-large onigiri. On top of that, the food he gives her is unremarkable, but Yuzuyu eats it because Kippei is the one who cooked it. Over the series his cooking and personality change for the better. He becomes more responsible and becomes Kokoro's boyfriend. At the end of Volume 7, he receives a letter from Yuzuyu. At the end of the manga he is mentioned living with his sister brother and possibly Kokoro. (He only receives the letter in the manga.)

Yuzuyu Sakashita (坂下 ゆずゆ, Sakashita Yuzuyu?)
Voiced by: Miyu Tsuzurahara
Yuzuyu ("Yuzu" for short) is a bubbly little girl. She tries her best to live without her mother. She is easy to get along with. In the beginning, she tells Satsuki she wants to marry Kippei when she grows up. She is very protective of Kippei but truly only wants him to be happy. During the whole series, Yuzuyu struggles with the absence of her mother and her wish to be with her. This conflicts with her wish to be with Kippei. At the very end of volume 7 we see her as a teenager who had written to Kippei a letter. She loves to draw, and likes corn and shellfish.

Kokoro Tokunaga (徳永 心, Tokunaga Kokoro?)
Voiced by: Fumina Hara
Kokoro is the soon-to-be girlfriend of Kippei. She is quiet, and rather lonesome as she lost her mother at an early age. This makes it easy for her to sympathize with Yuzuyu. Her father married another woman and thinking Kokoro could fend on her own, rents her a luxurious apartment to live in. The truth is, that is not the case. At the end of Volume 6 she tells her friends that she might be pregnant. Later, she finds out she's not. Kokoro is understanding of Kippei's responsibility to spend most of his time with Yuzuyu. Despite her popularity and Kippei's moron-ness, Kokoro's heart remains loyal to Kippei. Her name means "heart". She likely married Kippei at the end of the manga.

Misako Katakura (片倉 三沙子, Katakura Misako?)
Kippei's mother. She is a school crossing guard, among other things. She taught Kippei how to make onigiri (rice-balls). She is the older sister of Aunt Miyako.

Reiko Katakura (片倉 鈴子, Katakura Reiko?)
Voiced by: Kumiko Endou
Nee-chan (or "Sis" in the English version) is the bold and controlling sister of Kippei. She is a cosmetologist and everyone in Kippei's family follows her orders. Yet there is a secret nee-chan has been keeping to herself: that she can not have any children. She is known for her stylish outfits and nails.

Miyako Sakashita (坂下 都, Sakashita Miyako?)
Yuzuyu's mother. Her husband had died recently and taking care of Yuzuyu by herself was more than she could handle. She is the younger sister of Misako. She does take care of Yuzuyu in the end of the manga.

Satsuki Katakura (片倉 皐, Katakura Satsuki?)
Voiced by: Masami Suzuki
Satsuki is Kippei's 12-year-old brother. He is 156cm tall. He seems quite emotionless and very smart, as well as weird in a way. He doesn't really like children, but gets along great with Yuzuyu. Satsuki also bears a strong resemblance to his mother. He gets a girlfriend, Ayumi, near the end of the story.

Aki Kagami (鏡 亜希, Kagami Aki?) and Mai Motoki (元木 舞, Motoki Mai?)
Voiced by:Maki Saitou (Aki) and Fuyuka Oura (Mai)
Kokoro's friends. They usually show a bitter attitude towards Kippei and don't approve much of Kokoro and Kippei's relationship. Especially Aki. But in reality they just really want what is best for Kokoro. Aki is in love with Shin.

Miki Sakashita (坂下 ミキ, Sakashita Miki?)
Voiced by: Mika Itou
Miki is Yuzuyu's cousin from her father's side. Volume 4 of the manga is mostly Miki's story. Miki attended a prestigious school. She witnessed her teacher beating up a boy. When she told on her teacher, everything backfired. She was harassed by her peers and teacher but refused to tell her parents. She tried to take Yuzuyu away from the Katakura residence in order to replace herself. In the end, everything is resolved with her and her parents. She appears again in Volume 6.

Marika (まりか, Marika?) and Ken (健, Ken?)
Voiced by:Aoi Yabusaki (Marika) and Yuutaro Motoshiro (Ken)
Yuzuyu's friends from kindergarten. Marika can be quite stuck-up for a five-year-old, therefore, she has a crush on Kippei. Ken can be kind and strong, but they are all good friends.

Shin Tabata (田端 芯, Tabata Shin?)
Voiced by: Makoto Ueki
Kippei's friend and classmate. He and Aki have feelings for each other.

Nattsu (ナッツ, Nattsu?)
Voiced by: Akiko Kawase
A former "girlfriend" (more a "friends with benefits") of Kippei. Nattsu has strong feelings for Kippei and misses the way he was before he became responsible.

Aya Oga (大賀 綾, Ōga Aya?) and Akari Oga (大賀 あかり, Ōga Akari?)
Voiced by: Koumi Yoshida (Aya)
Akari and Aya are more or less in the same position as Kippei and Yuzuyu -- Aya and Akari's parents work all day forcing Akari to take care of her sister, who is Yuzuyu's classmate and friend. Akari is Kippei's classmate. Akari confiding in Kippei, among other things, results in trouble. They only appear in the manga series but not in the anime series.

Ayumi Kubota (久保田 あゆみ, Kubota Ayumi?)
Voiced by: Saeko Chiba
Ayumi is a girl who is in love with Satsuki. She is a model.


type......

comedy, drama, romance, shoujo

plot......
