Dear Santa, thank you for the dolls and pencils and the fish. It's Easter now, so I hope I didn't wake you but... honest, it is an emergency. There's a crack in my wall. Aunt Sharon says it's just an ordinary crack, but I know its not cause at night there's voices so... please please can you send someone to fix it? Or a policeman, or...
Back in a moment.
Thank you Santa.

Anime

Kiss Dum - Engage Planet

Books.  Bugs.  Boobies.  Lots of things blowing up.  Cute monsters wreaking havoc.  Ludicrous biology.

They should have swiped the Mk II Plotomatic from Nagasarete Airantou, because this thing makes no sense.

Anime

Claymore

Girls with great... big... swords.

But I don't want great big swords!
Son, you live in the conveniently-located desert!  You need all the swords you can get!

Demons.  Demi-demons.  Miscellaneous bodily fluids.  Great heapings of grim and grit, but fairly engaging nonetheless.

Anime

Bishoujo Celeb Panchanne

Hapless highschool housewife... No, hang on.

Beautiful and contented housewife and mother called upon by God to once again take up her magical girl costume and fight evil.

Live action with extra cheese, but the lead actress is pretty cute.

A different take on the Okusama wa Mahou Shoujo theme.

Anime

OverDrive

Hapless highschool student joins the cycling club to win the heart of the prettiest girl in school. Dismally unfunny slapstick.

I won't write this off completely on the basis of a single episode, but it's pretty bad.  Naturally, it appears to be the most popular show of the Spring season.

El Cazador de la Bruja Ep 2

Strong, though somewhat cliched, followup to the first episode. I could have done without pervert-boy though. It would be nice if Nadie shot him at the start of episode 3, but I expect he'll be around for a while.

Anime

Darker Than Black

Hot police chicks. The classic line "Shit, he's a contractor." (I've thought the same thing many times.)  Misuse of Messier numbers. More pupillae reconditus.  Much assorted weirdness.

Possibly too convinced of its own cool... but not necessarily wrong.  One to watch.
