- Legend of Twilight Braclet>
#Hack - LTB is
actually a new anime based upon previously famous #Hack -Sign world. It revolved
around a MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game) known as The
World. The story start when Rena and Shugo (left) won a contest allowing
them to use the legendary character of Kite and Black Rose (original #hack -
Sign character). But who setup the contest? It is a mystery and the plot thicken

interesting. Overall a good anime.

the Online game called The World. Somehow he was unable to logout and he lost
his memory. As the story progress, he was befriend by a lady warrior name Mimiru

haunting and enchanting soundtracks I've ever heard. The storyline is also very
good, albeit a bit confusing at first. Definitely a top notch anime.

CatGirl Nuku-nuku Dash !
This is a story set
in an alternate universe from the original OAV series. In this version, Higuchi
Atsuko ("Nuku-Nuku") is a Mishima Corporation military "androbot" who is
reprogrammed by persons unknown to protect living things. Undercover as a
nineteen-year-old accident victim with amnesia, she comes to stay with the
unsuspecting Natsume family - Kyuusaku, a slightly mad scientist; Akiko, a
research supervisor for the Mishima Corporation and Ryunosuke, their hormonal
fourteen-year-old son. Ryunosuke immediately falls head-over-heels for the
beautiful "Nuku-Nuku-san". This series is a pale comparison to the original OVA
series. However this series does have some action sequences that might remind
you of Armitage. The storyline is abit overuse by other anime out there but the
animation is not that bad. You can give this anime a go if you got nothing
better to do in the evening.

Cardcaptor Sakura (TV series, Movie 1 and Movie 2)
Many people thought that CCS (Cardcaptor Sakura) is a silly girly cartoon pretty
much like the Sailormoon series. But actually I found out that I quite enjoy the
series. The story is about a young girl named...yup Sakura, who accidentally
release all the Clow cards. The Clow cards are magical card that grant the user
magic power. These cards will also wreak havoc upon the world if left uncheck.
Keroberus, the Seal Beast who suppose to guard the Clow cards make a pact with
Sakura making her a Cardcaptor and ask her help in recapturing all the Clow
cards. Thus begin Sakura adventure as Cardcaptor. The series follow how she
capture all the cards and her encounter with a rival from Hong Kong. The first
Movies continue her adventure to Hong Kong to capture a card. The second Movie
is the grand finale ending the Cardcaptor Sakura series.

I remember first
seeing this anime in the AXN channel. The story revolve around a boy named
Kazuki Yotsuga who can see mecha battling around the city when nobody else can
see it. The illusion is so real that he had trouble differentiating reality from
fantasy. Or ... is it really fantasy? Mizuki Sanada, a very popular girl in
Kazuki school took interest in his visions and brought him to her father, a mad
scientist. Through experimental accident, both Mizuki and Kazuki were sent to
another parallel dimension by Mizuki's father. Thus begin their adventure in the
parallel dimension as they look for a way to return home.
You can see
that the mecha design was influenced by Evangelion series and the story line was
a bit similar to El-hazard. Nevertheless it is still a highly entertaining anime

This anime is
based upon the original story by Yuiga Satoru. Kai Kudo is a nouryoku-sha
(person with ESP) with the Ashurum organization. Kai begins to realize
that there may be more to Ashurum than meets the eye. However he willingly
offered his service to the organization in return for the care of her sick
sister Hikaru. During an operation, he begin to realize how much normal people
hated nouryoku-sha and he was nearly killed by his own team mate Shenlung.
Heavily wound and presumed dead by Ashurum, Kai was rescued by Asuka.
I kindda like this
anime series. The animation is smooth while the story is interesting.
It might not have as much action as far as action anime goes but the series is still

Metal Panic !!
Full Metal Panic !!
is another mecha anime (I'm a sucker for mecha anime!!!). The story revolved
around Sagara Sousuke, a sergeant with the secret anti-terrorist organization
known as the "Mithril". He was send to Japan to protect a girl name Kaname
Chidori. Because of his military training and his lack of social skill, Sagara faced a lot of humorous situation as he try to adept to the new
surrounding. This is a very entertaining action, comedy anime.

Metal Panic !! 2 Fomoffu
This is the
next installment of the ever famous Full Metal Panic. However this special OVAs
talk about Sagara life as a student and the blossoming love with Kaname and
doesn't have any mecha action (unless you counted that robotic Bunta-kun suit a
mech). Each episode is separate and each one is as funny as the next one.
Definitely a good comedy anime. Too bad it doesn't have any mecha
action....sigh. But it is still a good watch. You better grab a seat and get
ready to laugh your ass off this one.
