Okay, I've managed to get hold of a computer and as I promised I shall be reviewing an anime series .Today it shall be REC. If this review is terrible, bear in mind that this is my first time doing one from the top of my head, I usually copy what it says on Wiki or other sites :p: Also, bear in mind that I got a 'C' in English language and a 'D' in literature at GCSE :proud:

Okay, so REC. A short anime in two ways; it is only 9 episodes long (10 if you count the OVA special episode, which is set between episodes 8 and 9), and as well as that each episode is only about 10 minutes long. Each episode is named after a film starring the actress Audrey Hepburn, who is the idol of one of the main characters. Each episode also has a quote from that film, but you don't have to have seen any of them to appreciate this series.

It is a romantic comedy; the main characters are Fumihiko Matsumaru, a 26 year old salaryman who works in the marketing department of a snack company, and Aka Onda who is a 20 year old seiyu (voice actress). Aka ends up living with Matsumaru after her apartment burns down, despite the fact that they only met earlier that evening, because she has nowhere else to stay. Then the next day, Matsumaru's first marketing concept is accepted as the mascot of a new snack, and Aka is chosen as the voice actress for this mascot. The two decide to keep their relationship a secret from their employers, and the main focus of the anime is on their developing relationship.

Personally, I quite liked this series. The comedy was good in places, and if you like the romance genre I would highly recommend it. However, I think it ended a bit abruptly, possibly they only ended it there because they had run out of Audrey Hepburn films to quote? :rofl: . I give it an 8/10, the only let down being the ending.

Okay, here's a long story and please give me an answer, none of this "find out for yourself" or I'll spend all my money getting the manga... = NOT GOOD!

To all death note fans:
Spoiler:
Show
Is L gay? As I saw a little clip thing online and L and Light were kissing... is that just something stupid someone put together or do they end up kissing = both gay? Or is Light using the gay L to get what he wants? Please tell me or some aof my savings will disappear.

I don't know, it might have been, but I quickly clicked off of it... I hope it's not true. The graphics seemed genuine, but they might have been good drawers, I don't know...

Time for another review, and seeing as it's the middle of summer what better time is there to review 'Itsudatte my Santa'? :p: Based on the manga by Ken Akamatsu (Manga-ka for Love Hina, Negima, A.I. Love You), this is a two episode OVA (each episode lasting just 30 minutes including music). Seeing as it is only two episodes long, it's hard to give a summary of the story without spoiling the whole thing so I'll try not to go into too much detail.

The first episode introduces the two main characters; Santa, a boy who was born on Christmas Eve (hence his parent's cruel choice of name :p: ). For most of his life he spent Christmas, and his birthday, alone as his parents were too busy with work. So the second character, Mai (a 'santa in training') appears next to him out of nowhere and announces that she has been given the job of keeping him happy for that one night (but not in a perverted way :p: ). Mai shows him that many people care about him, including his parents, and eventually he learns the 'true meaning of Christmas' and begins to believe in Santa. The main weaknesses of the first OVA are that it is incredibly rushed, at the beginning of the episode Santa is trying everything to escape from Mai and yet half an hour later there are love confessions :s:. Also, there is fan service in this episode, but bear in mind that Mai is about 14 give or take a couple of years :ninja:

Then there is the second episode, which is just weird. It is set half a year later in the summer, when Santa visits the beach with Mai (who doesn't have enough power to return to santa school). All of a sudden, Mai's little sister appears out of nowhere. She is called Maimai, and she doesn't show up in the manga. Also, she doesn't do much in the anime besides bite things (be it watermelons or people's backsides :ninja: ). The first half is more or less a parody of the first OVA, and also features a 'duel' between Mai and her rival Shirley (who also isn't in the manga). Then the second half focuses on the fact that Mai has to return to santa school and therefore must say goodbye to Santa. All in all, it was a fairly good ending to a fairly weird couple of episodes, but they couldn't just leave it like that. It wasn't a weird enough ending. So they made a preview for a THIRD OVA; featuring Mai being sent back, Maimai being taken away but returning, and something about a fight with giant mechas. This third episode was never made, and apparently there were never plans to make it, it was just a joke preview.

So, if you like rushed comedy/romance, young children who eat watermelons at the speed of 1 per second, or are just looking for something a little weird, I would recommend this series. Otherwise, play it safe and stick to the manga. My overall rating is 4/10, there were a few moderately funny parts and the moral behind the story just about made this watchable.

Wow, this place is quiet :p: I'm not going to post two giant posts one after the other, so I won't review anything this week. But for those who like anime devoid of plotlines and full of fanservice I would recommend Cosplay Complex. The begining leaves you thinking 'WTF?', the end leaves you thinking 'WTF?', but there are some really funny bits in between that make it well worth watching!

I have been watching death note to ep 26... very good indeed... will start on the manga now instead and continue watching the anime once it is complete.

Now I have turned my eyes on Monster. Have only wathced 27 eps yet, but it is very promising this far. Seems to be well reviewed around the web as well. Will come back to recommend it once I have seen it all.
