Fifty years ago, Inuyasha and Kikyo discovered the legendary Horai Island – a place which only appears out of the mists every few decades. During that time, they found several half-demon children who were subject to the demonic rule of the Four War Gods, but had to leave before they could do anything about the situation. In “modern” feudal times, the island reappears and one of the children escapes, seeking out Inuyasha to rescue them all from the Four War Gods. Can Inuyasha liberate the children with the help of the Tetsusaiga, before the island once again disappears into the mists?
In search of answers, Yukari Morita travels to the place where her father had abandoned her mother seventeen years ago on their honeymoon night. When she reaches the Solomon Islands, an unlikely sequence of events occurs and her fate becomes intertwined with that of Solomon Space Agency. She meets Isao Nasuda, the director of SSA, who happens who be quite the opportunist. Nasuda is willing to help her find her father, but at a price: doing a simple job, pressing buttons -- something even a monkey could do! Little does she know she'll be piloting Japan's first manned rocket into outer space!
These two anime connect partly by being broadly mech-related, but more truly through their vibrant humour and character development. Yukari's journey of self-discovery is not a million miles away from Kaname's, and maybe even Sosuke's. Bright, clear animation and an upbeat attitude; young pilots working with adults for realistic reasons; both of these anime are energetic and often laugh-out-loud funny.
Shungo is an extraordinary high school student; in addition to his studies, he’s been trained by his mercenary sister to be a top mercenary. Their newest task involves the Tsukimura siblings; both of them have the powers of a succubus, but Mayu has a slight problem: she suffers from androphobia – a fear of men! Shungo’s new objective is to help Mayu overcome this phobia and protect her from the men her succubus powers naturally draw to her; but this becomes more difficult once he becomes the guinea pig for social experiments involving Mayu, such as sharing the same bed and even bathing together! To make matters worse, the ever-growing popularity of Mayu at school and the student council president’s infatuation with Shungo only add to his workload!
both of these series are a slap-stick like comady full of action a little intense drama and a stong subtle story line. each anime has a good plot that you can try to figue out for your self whail still being presently surprised by the outcome. i strongly recommend each of these to anyone who is intrested in the other.
An organization known to the dark side of the world as Chronos claims to desire world peace, employing the top thirteen assassins in the world known as 'Erasers.' They each have a weapon customized to fit their style, all made out of orichalcum ore, the strongest material available on Earth. Number 13, Train Heartnet (codenamed Black Cat) is the most famous and revered of the thirteen Chronos numbers, but in the light of a tragic event he has come to question his path in life. Together with Sven Vollfied, a struggling bounty hunter and a living weapon named Eve, Train takes up a job as a bounty hunter - all the while running from the other Erasers and Creed Diskenth, a crazed man whom wants him to join the Apostles of the Stars, a group made to destroy Chronos.
Black Cat and Full Metal Panic have one major aspect in common: Nonstop action with a dose of romance. Both follow male protagonists battling male antagonists who either have very close ties to a girl that they vow to protect, or a girl that has changed their life. If you liked one you're sure to like the other. Animation is very well done on both, and the backgrounds are so detailed its as if they are substituting their reality, for your own.
Sumiregawa Nenene is an author who hasn't published a book in years. However, at a book signing in Hong Kong, things go fascinatingly awry. For starters, her guides are three sisters who operate a detective agency: Maggie, Michelle, and Anita. Then there's the attacks on Nenene's life, and her only line of defense is the three sisters -- who can all use paper as weapons, tools, and even transportation. But can their powers protect Nenene from the mysterious forces that not only want her, but all the precious books of the world...?
ROD the TV and Full Metal Panic! are two anime that are generous with the humor, but still have a mission to be completed. They're action-packed shows with hilarious antics. Also, both have characters that stand out; interesting, well-developed, and funny! If you enjoyed watching one, I recommend you watch the other.
