(Double post, sorry...)

So I just finished Kashimashi, and I have to say, it's a very good anime. In case you don't know, it's a shoujo-ai. The plot is slow at first, but it's only 13 episodes long, and it does get better.

The art is cute, and fits the storyline well, and I really got into it. At times, I became really annoyed with the absolute centricity around the main character, but I don't typically like harem anime, so that's probably part of it.

The music is extremely good, and in the last few episodes, I didn't want to stop watching for anything. It almost made me cry a couple of times, and it probably had the sweetest ending I've ever seen. You have to watch the OVA after the last episode, though, because that's really where it ends.

It was adorable, and I liked how it portrayed the relationships as actual, developing relationships, and not just all sexual and fanservice as so many series with same-sex relationships tend to do.

Overall, I'd probably give it a 9 out of 10, and I'd definitely recommend it.

Witchblade.

It's got something for EVERYONE!!

Women in skimpy outfits fighting in highly sexualized fights! (that does get downplayed later on).
A manly man!! (Like, the complete opposite of a bishie!! CHEST HAIR AND ALL!!)
Romance!
The cutest little girl ever!!
A great ending!

Also:
Kino's Journey. One of the best anime's I've seen in a while. It's trippy and awesome and really cool. Makes me want to buy a motorcycle like her's and go on a journey, lol.

Ooh, I read the first light novel of Kino's Journey a while ago, but I never got a chance to watch it. I completely forgot about it, but I'll look it up now~

I just finished Girl Friends (another shoujo-ai), which was really cute. The ending was so-so, but it had a great story and very good character development.

The first season of the series just finished airing, and it's called The World God Only Knows. It's about a 16-year old guy who's an EXTREME dating sim otaku, and online he's know as 'the capturing God' for conquering so many girls. Then, one day, a cute little demon from Hell named Elsie, comes and tells him that they must capture 'loose souls' together, or else they'll both die, and in order to do that, he has to make girls fall in love with him!

It's very hilarious. Keima, the main character is so odd and so addicted to dating sims. Elsie is the cutest, and might I also add that she's voiced by Amu's seiyu(Kanae Ito) from Shugo Chara! The animation is fantastic, and the ED song changes with each girl's arc.(As in, the song is the same, but during that girl's arc, the girl sings it.)

I'm currently excited for season 2, which is coming out in spring. The anime is very hilarious, yet touching at the same time.

So if I didn't cry, does that mean I'm manlier than Chuck Norris?

Honey and Clover (ハチミツとクローバー)...was amazing. After I finished it, I felt a little sad inside. I wish it never ended. It made me cry so many times...ㅠㅇㅠ;;;;
I'd reccomend it to any shojo fan. All the charchters seemed so real, so relatable, as well as the situations and it has so many messages about life.

Fixed.

Got distracted from FMA. I am starting Azumanga Daioh since my friend loves it and highly recommends it. So I am recommending it to you all in case you need cuteness in your life.

I could recommend so many-- but for now I'll just do one suggestion.

I can't express enough how amazing Speed Grapher is. Yet a warning, it's probably more age appropriate for those 16+ due to some of the themes in it. It's about a former war photographer named Saiga who is trying to make a living by getting photos for political and police investigations as it seems he is stuck in Japan. During an investigation he comes across a mysterious club/cult known as the Roppongi Club. From here he meets "The Goddess" also known as Kagura Tennouzu, who with a single kiss grants him the ability to make things explode with his camera. Through out the series Saiga tries to help Kagura escape from her horrible life and live a normal one; yet there are many obstacles in their way.

My description could never do it justice, I suggest looking it up if you're interested. xD

I'd recommend something I read last night. It's called "Barajou no Kiss", or "Kiss of the Rose Princess." Something of the like, there are a few different translations. But it's really really good. It's been out for almost two years and it's only on chapter 22, but I'd still recommend it.

And I agree on Fairy Tail :3
