Once there lived an eccentric author called Drosselmeyer who wrote grand tragedies - one of them was the tale of a prince who sealed away an evil raven by breaking his own heart into tiny pieces. However, before the story could be completed, the author died and the tale took on a life of its own. Now, in a town where fiction and reality meet, the story continues on its tragic course with Ahiru, a duck who transforms into the beautiful Princess Tutu in order to restore the prince's heart. But will Ahiru's act of love be enough to defy the story's terrible destiny and lead to a happy ending?
A-ko is the brawn, B-ko is the brains, and C-ko is, well, C-ko. They'd make a great team, but A-ko and B-ko are rivals for C-ko's friendship, and if that wasn't confusing enough, there's an army of extra-planetary forces gunning for her too. The battle begins, though not without some comedy!
Secret agent for the British Libraries, Yomiko Readman, has an infatuation with books. When she purchases one of the books that contain the notes for a plan to purge the world of humanity, Yomiko (along with the help of Ms. Deep and Drake) uses her powers of paper manipulation to stop a group of resurrected men from fulfilling the plan.
Read or Die oozes style from every pore, but when I think of anime with style, the first title to pop into my head is FLCL just because it's so unique. Fans of RoD's action ought to enjoy the twisted mecha battles in FLCL; fans of RoD's ultra-campy world ought to find something to like in FLCL's juxtaposition of the real and unreal.
Ayato Kamina may seem like an average boy in a devastated world, but after being captured by TERRA, a military organization set on saving the world from the Mu, an alien race set on "tuning" the world, he realizes he is an instrument in deciding the fate of humanity and piloting RahXephon. Not only is Ayato the only person who can control the mecha, but he also has a terrible fate of his own. Holding onto memories of his old life and grasping to keep his own humanity, he must struggle in this new world and realize his true potential with RahXephon.
Kuma is a typical friendly sentient stuffed bear -- that is, until he gets angry and transforms into Super Kuma-san, protector of all that is good and pure! With a homicidal doll on the loose, Kuma-san is up to his paws in trouble. Can he stop the carved beauty before it's too late?
Super Kuma-san and FLCL share a very quirky abstract weirdness that can't properly be defined. If you found one amusing, then I'm sure you'd get a real kick out of the other. Neither one is very long, and could easily be seen through to the end in a very short time. quite funny.
