Synopsis:

In today's technology-driven society, everything has to move with the times, and magic is no exception. As spells are cast with various magic "codes", made up of binary digits, a computer becomes just as useful to the aspiring mage as a magic wand. One such would-be wizard is Koyomi Morishita, a girl who suffers from a bizarre inability to cast more than one type of spell. No matter how hard she concentrates she can only use code to do one thing: summon metal wash basins, directly above people's heads more often than not! Hoping to improve her versatility, she becomes a student of voluptuous expert witch Misa Anehara. However, with malevolent "daemons" - monsters summoned by unscrupulous magic wielders - appearing at every turn, Koyomi will need all the help she can get!

Asura Cryin'

Asura Cryin'

Three years after an accident that nearly left him for dead, Tomoharu Natsume is about to start his high school life. Though with a ghost named Misao following him around, Tomoharu is far from being an average teenager. One day a strange woman appears and gives him a trunk that contains a tremendous power. This power is known as an Asura Machina - a being that draws its strength from a human sacrifice - and the sacrifice within Tomoharu's Asura is none other than Misao. As the bearer of such a power, Tomoharu immediately becomes the target of various groups, including the Divine Guards, who want his power for their own. When Tomoharu befriends a demon called Kanade and she is captured by the Divine Guards, he joins the Dark Society in order to save her. Now, Tomoharu will have to fight alongside the Dark Society while he tries to find a way to save Misao and bring her back to life.

Yoku Wakaru Gendai Mahou and Asura Cryin are both fantasy series taking place in modern Japan and where magic and good'ole clichés doesn't seem so out of place. Clumsy moe, flashy fights, and not much of a story; I doubt any of those shows will make it to anyone's top 5, but they can be very enjoyable if you just turn your brain off and enjoy the ride.

Chaos;HEAd

Takumi is a reclusive otaku who wants nothing more than to be left alone to play online games and watch anime. He only attends the minimum necessary to pass his classes, and rarely leaves his cramped room except to purchase the newest figurines. One evening, while Takumi is chatting online with his friend "Grim," a stranger called "Shogun" joins the channel and, after "Grim" leaves, posts a series of disturbing photographs depicting a man impaled to a wall with metal stakes. The following day, Takumi is horrified when he wanders into an alley and once again sees Shogun’s images – but this time, the gruesome scene is reality. From then on, Takumi sees the world through a new set of eyes; imaginary delusions meld with reality, and he isn't sure who he can trust. With suspicions and confusion at every turn, Takumi must struggle to determine what's going on - but most importantly, whose eyes are those eyes?

Both shows try to be very interesting but tend to lack comunicating that to the viewer. While the animation in both are pretty good that's about all you will be left enjoying in both. Both anime have flat and typical characters that we've all seen before in other anime. Yoku Wakaru Gendai Mahou tries to be more ecchi but Chaos;Head has more perversion. If you for some reason liked one check out the other.

It's the first day of high school, and plenty of school clubs are doing their best to recruit new members. However, for ditzy Yui, none of them seem to fit the bill. However, when she accidentally signs up to join the light music club, Yui begins a hilarious adventure to become a world class guitarist! There's just one problem: she's never played the guitar before in her life! Joined by bassist Mio, drummer Ritsu and keyboardist Tsugumi, Yui and the gang will juggle their studies with buying instruments, learning how to read music and even performing in the school festival, all in the hopes of someday becoming a successful band!

Both of these shows have an adorable cast that are best describe as being cute, warm, fuzzy, slightly clusmy and ditzy (in other words, "moe" if you want an otaku-term for it ^^). They both leave you with a fuzzy feel-good kind of emotion, and although they might not be the most epic-awesomest show ever, they will certainly bring a cute smile to your face simply because the cast are just ADORABLE~~!! XD

Steins;Gate

Steins;Gate

The eccentric mad scientist Okabe, his childhood friend Mayuri, and the otaku hacker Daru have banded together to form the Future Gadget Research Laboratory, and spend their days in a ramshackle laboratory hanging out and occasionally attempting to invent incredible futuristic gadgets. However, their claymore is a hydrator and their hair dryer flips breakers, and the only invention that’s even remotely interesting is their Phone Microwave, which transforms bananas into oozing green gel. But when an experiment goes awry the gang discovers that the Phone Microwave can also send text messages to the past. And what's more, the words they send can affect the flow of time and have unforeseen, far-reaching consequences - consequences that Okabe may not be able to handle...

This is a bit of an odd pair, but my excuse for recommending them is that both YWGM and Steins;Gateboth feature a lot of technology and gadgets, such as cellphones and computers. Yoku Wakaru has way more magical girl action, but if you like your codes, you might give it a shot too.
