In the Guardian World, there live magic users and Neutralizers whose goal is to protect the Throne of Yord -- the source of their power. When the Throne is stolen from its place of rest, it’s up to Tiara and her furry familiar Japolo to find it… but things aren’t always as they seem. Beneath the façade of a simple painting lies the true identity of the Throne of Yord, and beneath the pretense of a simple theft lies the real reason it was stolen… a reason that may end up costing Tiara and her friends their very lives!
It is the year 2023, 30 years since the time of the Silent Crisis that brought the world to the brink of destruction.

The only hope for mankind is the AMP -- the Attacked Mystification Police -- a group of women with paranormal abilities who are dedicated to stopping the Hawk at all costs. With the frequency of attacks increasing and the bodies piling up, it's up to Katsumi Liqeuer and the rest of the gang to stop the invading threat... before it's too late.
In a land where the souls of humans fossilize to become books, a group known as the Armed Librarians strive to maintain and protect the tomes stored within the Bantorra Library. Meanwhile the Shindeki church is transforming people into living weapons. These human bombs are known simply as ‘Meat’, and they have been programmed to carry out a single action: to kill Hamyuts Meseta, the Armed Librarians’ director. Now, alongside the threat of Dragon Pneumonia, the Librarians use their powerful and unique psychic abilities to stop the Shindeki Church at all costs. But when one of their colleagues betrays them and steals one of the seven war machines of the past, the Librarians must work even harder to prevent their enemies’ nefarious plans from coming to fruition.
I have little good to say about either series. Both involve ludricously convoluted and somewhat pretentious waffle as an excuse to wallow in anime cliches (including bishonen males, though Bantora skews more towards buxom and moe-moe girls). Neither are good, honestly, but if you like your silly action scenes sprinkled liberally with a smattering of pseudophilosophical nonsense and a side order of Dead Serious Angst, then maybe you're of a mindset that will enjoy these.
Beneath Tokyo lies a city whose inhabitants have inherited a natural ability to control the elements. After a civil uprising, two girls surface from the sub-terra in a bid to escape from this secret world. Together, Chelsea and Ruri stumble upon Asagi Rumina, a man who becomes determined to protect them from those who would pursue the maiden of life. After a close encounter with death, Rumina learns that he must develop a skill of his own to keep his newfound friends safe, especially as it seems to be his responsibility to stop the impending doom rising to take over the planet’s surface. Will his power of wind be enough to take on The Company, or will he be forced to kneel before those brandishing electricity, ice and shadow?

For X lovers, what could be better than seeing your favorite characters again? Well, in Tsubasa Chronicle, you can! Most notably, Seishirou returns for a long lasting cameo in the later episodes. You also get to see Arashi and Sorata, Yuzuriha and Kusanagi, and many other characters from X. Also, this series is by CLAMP, so the tragic feel is also evident.
