CHRNO CRUSADE



Info (By AnimeNFO) :
The story takes place in the year 1920 in the United States of America. Paid to exterminate demons, Chrno and Sister Rosette are professional exorcists from the Magdala Monastery. They travel between various places to prevent demons from taking possession and haunting various things that come from outside the U.S.A.

One day, Rosette was given the orders to investigate a "demon master" known as Ricardo who was a wealthy American. Infiltrating the hotels that Ricardo possessed, they meet a young girl named Asmaria who was captured by him. She had a special power that allowed her to get near gods using her singing. As her power got discovered, it meant people around her always felt uncomfortable. And so, she was always alone.

Seeing how Asmaria was giving up because of her fate, Rosette reassures her and says, "If you give it all you've got, you'll be able to change anything for sure." Their battles were extremely fierce but, thanks to Asmaria's help, they manage to beat the treachery that stood before them.

Thinking that they'll have peaceful days again now that Asmaria's case was solved, some important information comes in. The enemy who was sending out the demons is Joshua. Joshua was the name of Rosette's younger brother who she was seperated from at birth. In the orphanage where they were brought up, they were well known for how well they got along. Just like twin brother and sister.

But, as Joshua has a power that makes him act as an agent for god, he was also feared by those around him. He longs to go against Rosette for the great power she possessed... And so, Joshua entrusts himself to the great demon Ion and disappears right before Rosette's eyes. Later, he appears once again to confront them at the monastery. In order to rescue Joshua, Rosette sets off on a journey together with Chrno and Asmaria.

On their journey, as the Rosette party exterminate demons as pros to earn money, they meet Stella. Thinking that Chrno may have been the demon who murdered his parents, she approaches them. However, he finds out that Chrno hadn't done anything like that in the past and so, she goes along with them (against her own will?) so that she could gather information on the demon she's after.

During that time, the assasins that Ion sent out found them. Being seperated from her friends, Rosette must fight alone. She bearly wins the battle but, in the end, she continues her journey without obtaining any clues linked to Ion...

OH MY GODDESS!



Anime Info: (From Animereview)
Keiichi, a college kid trying to fit in with the upperclassmen in his dorm, has been assigned to keep watch over the place while the rest of them are out partying. Incredibly hungry, he can't find anyplace that will deliver to him; in his desperation, he misdials an eatery and winds up with a Goddess Hotline instead. An incredibly cute young woman, Belldandy, shows up and tells Keiichi that she can grant him one wish. Thinking it was all a big prank, he wishes that he could have a girlfriend forever just like her. But it's no joke, Belldandy is happy to comply with Keiichi's request, and she will stay close to him as long as he desires. Problem is, it's an all guys dorm, and Keiichi finds himself kicked out in no time. Belldandy fixes up an old temple that they quickly make their home. As the episodes progress, we get to see the relationship between Keiichi and Belldandy grow despite the best intentions of her two goddess sisters, Skuld and Urd, and a mysterious secret that may pull these two lovers apart forever.

BASTARD (My Personal Favorite, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!)



Anime Info: (From Animereview)
Our story begins in a far future where the world has been through an apocalypse that spawned all sorts of strange and evil creatures, leaving human beings in a precarious position. Things have gone back to a feudal era where sorcery, sword fighting, and armor plating rule the day. Four warlords of chaos get together to break the seals that hold back a creature of ultimate darkness, and as the viewer knows, this can't be good. At the same time...Yoko is best friends with Rushe, a little boy who follows her everywhere. Little does she know that buried deep within Rushe is a secret weapon, the wizard known as Dark Schneider. When the warlords' plans come to the attention of the free world, there's a realization that Dark Schneider is the only hope of defeating the threat.

There's only one problem. Dark Schneider is a freak.

Nevertheless, when your kingdom is under fire from the most powerful magic known to man, you resurrect whomever you can. With Yoko's kiss, Rushe becomes the legendary Dark Schneider. Now he's not really happy about the arrangement, since he was essentially imprisoned for a very long time. Eventually, he figures, why not? He'd love to prove that he's still the most powerful being on Earth, and if that takes defeating some of his old comrades in arms, so be it. As long as he can get his groove on, he's happy...but is a rusty white-haired jerk of a warlock going to be able to handle the job?

FLCL



Anime Info: (From Animereview)
Naota is just about ready to go into junior high school. He lives in a bizarre near future in a relatively normal town, except for a mysterious factory shaped like a giant iron that popped up overnight and has been around ever since. He lives with his father, a bakery owner and wannabe author who's pretty much a freak, and his grandfather who's along for the ride. His older brother Tasuku is studying in America; Tasuku's delinquent girlfriend, Mamimi, keeps hanging around with Naota in search of companionship. If that weren't enough weird influences, Naota's life gets even stranger when Haruko, a crazy redhead who claims she's an alien, runs over him with a moped, gives him mouth to mouth resuscitation, and finishes the job by whacking him over the head with her bass guitar. Then she moves in as his family's maid. And this is the first ten minutes.
