This anime is about Keiichi a college student that has constant bad luck. Keiichi is in the motorcycle club and gets stuck with all the chores, During the chores he tries to make call for something he forgot to do.
The call gets redirected to the Goddess hotline, and Belldandy appears before Keiichi. Belldandy offers any wish he may want, not believing her he jokingly wishes for Belldandy to be by his side forever, which of course came true. Anything that tries to separate them will be stopped, example: because theres a girl in the dorm, the club members kicked him out of the dorm.
The first night together they slept in a car, getting to know each other. Because Belldandy did a little magic, they got a place to live at a monks house, soon after he sees Belldandy singing heavenly and decides he isn't holy enough and needs to go on a trip giving them the house totally. Belldandy is pretty much Keiichi's good luck charm but as you can tell through the series he loves her and she loves him.
Keiichi takes forever to makes a move, I don't think he even kisses her till closer to the end. What makes it worst is Belldandy 2 sisters come to live with them. Urd is the eldest sister and is part devil, she is very sexy, lazy, loves television, and is always trying to make Keiichi's relationship with her sister to go faster by trying to make him have sex with her. Skuld is the youngest genius and and wants all Belldandy's attention, absolutely cant stand Keiichi being near Belldandy.
This anime is great and i suggest watching it, there are 2 series and a movie.

Throughout the series Ren learns the meaning of the emotion love, and Takeya Accepts her as his slave; after the others call her defective and tries to take her away. DearS is way more perverted than Chobits, The slaves dress and act a lot like BDSM(Bondage slave/master relationships) slaves. Takeya's grammar teacher rights sex novels and constantly tries to make her students do or say perverted stuff. EXAMPLE: Ren's getting human clothes and she runs out to Takeya trying to get approval in her lingerie, the teacher catches them and thinks there having a three way with Neneko and wants to join but can't.
DearS is a great funny anime, with similarities to Chobits and asks that all important question, is it morally okay to be in love outside our species. It's a short anime so I suggest watching it and only buying if u fall in love with it. On a side note tell me your favorite anime that some people may not know and i'll watch it and blog it, and even give a shout out to the first person that suggested it.

The main story is about the raccoons and in minor the foxes, this story is as if the what the legends about raccoons and foxes were true, they can transform. The raccoons start realizing there land is getting smaller, and have a few leaders journey to the best transformers, the younger generation practice transforming, and during spring do NOT procreate.
Pom Poko goes through 2-3 years during the development of the town. The raccoons try many ways to scare the people away, and work on a few people but all it did was made more people move in.
The leaders finally show up after a year, and they help create a scary parade, which people thought it was a gimmick which a theme park took credit for it. the raccoons pretty much give up, but then the foxes show up and try to make a deal for the raccoons that can transform pretend to be humans and live among us. which means the ones that can't they would have to let die.
The raccoons do one last thing and transform the hills back to the original way, just for one last moment in there old lives. The ones that can transform live among humans, the others live every day as if there last. When the raccoons transformed the lands(an illusion) the humans make parks and some area where animals can live.
Pom Poko(Raccoon Wars) is a funny but very sad movie which tries to tell us humans how we affect our world and wild life. Parents before you let your kids watch; the artist does draw the animals natural with there genitals, even some jokes are used with them. This is a great Miyazaki film and I definitely would add this to your collection.

In this film the main characters are Satsuki(10) and Mei(4), the children with their father moved to rural japan to closer to there mother of long term illness. Right from the start when dads working at home and Satsuki is at school, Mei goes off into this forest thicket, where she meets Totoro a forest god, and starts playing on top his belly when he tries to sleep. You may have seen this scene from southpark with Cartman and kuthulu, I usually like southpark but that episode annoyed making fun of a great movie like this.
Throughout the movie her and her sister meet up with Totoro. Satsuki First meeting is when shes holding Mei waiting at the bus for her father in the rain. Totoro takes them into a cat bus and have an adventurous ride, until they meet up with father. As you see in the above picture, they meet up again late one night while Mei is impatiently waiting for there garden to grow, Totoro takes the girls to dance around the garden and make them magically grow. The very next day they weren't huge like last night but they finally sprouted.
This movie takes you back to your childhood, with beautiful art, funny situations and even back to a child's love of their mom when there in the hospital. If you have seen spirited away, or Ponyo, or even Valley of the Wind you will love this, i'll be talking about those other movies soon, I definitely suggest collecting all of Miyazaki's movies.

"SPOILER" The iris Ayumu's brothers favorite flower is mentioned a lot through the series.

Palazzo is the leader of Across and all he does is sit on his throne and bark orders at Excel.
Excel is one of the members of Across and absolutely loves Palazzo. Excel is crazy; in the anime she dies repeatedly in every episode. she speaks so fast you can barely understand her.
Menchi is a Pomeranian dog that Excel keeps locked up in her apartment. Menchi is kind of her pet but most of the time when Excel can't afford food Menchi is her emergency food supply. Menchi also gets some side episodes for herself.
Hyatt is the 2nd Across member there is 3rd but that's in the manga not the anime. Hyatt is a martian princess that fell onto Excel; while in her sleep chamber. Hyatt for some reason gets sick in every episode; throws up blood and dies.
The anime has the same plot as the manga; but in a lot of ways different. The creator of Excel Saga has to approve each episode because there contract says the anime storyline cant be like the manga's. Throughout the series Excel and Hyatt has to try to take over the city in a different genre of anime. There is also the department of city security that's is always trying to stop them making up of; Iwata, Sumiyoshi, Watanabe, Matsuya, Ropponmatsu, and Dr Kabapu.
Since this anime has a different genre in each episode; it has many different things; comedy, sadness, action, drama, fan-service, and some romance.
This anime is definitely a must watch but probably would just rent it.

One part of the story is mainly about the zodiac animals. There is this family called the Sohma family, they are cursed when hugged by the opposite sex they turn into the animal they represent in the zodiac calender. The 2 main ones are Yuki and Kyo. Yuki turns into the mouse of the zodiac, he is very proper in the family because the leader use to abuse him physically and emotionally; like most in the family they believe they can never be accepted by anyone. Kyo is the outcast of the family because he is the cat, and if you know the zodiac calender there is no cat, he isn't even accepted by his family, through out he thinks if he beats Yuki he will be accepted. Kyo is pretty much an outcast from outcasts, and has a very sad story i won't say to much more.
The second part of the story is about Tohru Honda, a girl whose mother died when she was young, never scene her father and lives with her grandfather. Her grandfather is getting the house renovated and asks her if she can live with one of her friends for a few months. Tohru being the very selfless type didn't want to bother her friends Arisa and Saki. Tohru decides to live in a tent and do all her homework, and work hard on her job with no help. Tohru Honda let me explain; she is very selfless she wanted to finish school for her mom, she works very hard, and doesn't want to be handed anything, she also finds the best in anyone, one flaw is she has little common sense.
How the stories come together; Tohru's tent she lives in for one night, finds out she accidentally lived on Sohma land. Kyo, Yuki, and Shigure the owner of the house and is the dog zodiac; let her stay with them but she wont let herself stay for free so they agreed to have her clean and cook. Later on she finds out there secret; and most that do get there memories wiped. Tohru didn't because they felt she was special. The Sohma family was very right; every member she meets her; her natural goodness helps each member get over a mental issue they have because the family there in. there is a quote im going to say to end this blog, i suggest to definitely watch this series and read the manga to go further in this wonderful story.
QOUTE: "My mom told me, it’s better to trust people than to doubt them. She said that people aren’t born with kind hearts. When we’re born, all we have are desires for food and material things. Selfish instincts, I guess. But she said that kindness is something that grows inside of each person’s body, but it’s up to us to nurture that kindness in our hearts. That’s why kindness is different for every person.
“We’re all born with selfish desires, so we can all relate to those feelings in others. But kindness is something made individually by each person, so it’s easy to misunderstand when others are trying to be kind to you.”"

|Tsukasa, Konata, Kagami, and Miyuki.|
How Lucky Star is different, these girl are very random I mean random; there conversations will have you going wtf. Also Lucky Star has quite of references to anime, manga, and video games. The main anime they reference is "The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya". Some of the random conversations are; how you eat your food, why isn't real life like video games or anime, why does your hair dry out after swimming and etc... now that i said what most of the anime is about ill explain each characters personality.
Tsukasa: younger twin sister of Kagami; she is a airhead, shy, sweet, loves to cook and sow, doesn't study well.
Konata: shortest of the group and hates it. Konata is a lot like me; she loves gaming, reading manga, watching anime, loves anime conventions. Konata is very lazy and crams for exams in a night, and loves copying work from Kagami.
Kagami: elder twin sister of Tsukasa; shes is the opposite Tsukasa. Kagami works hard, gets good grades, argues with Konata, likes games but more of a shooter genre, Konata is more of RPG and Sim dates gamer. Kagami doesn't like manga and Konata doesn't understand how she doesn't fall asleep while reading without pictures.
Miyuki: is the smartest and most adult looking. Miyuki knows pretty much everything all of them call her for all the answers, she is also very clumsy, forgetful when she concentrates on other things, and has that girl with glasses thing going for her. Konata always calling her molle(probably didn't spell it right.) Which means cute by your faults.
This anime has quite a few other characters like parents and family of the main characters, even teachers; but I felt the main characters are more important to explain. If you love Azumanga Diaoh i definitely suggest this anime.
|Left to Right: Yomi, Osaka, Chiyo, Sakaki, Kagura, Tomo|
Throughout the 26 episode series they go though 3 years sophomore, junior, senior year. The main reason this show is so popular is because of the characters so I'm going to explain the main group of girls in more detail.
|Yukari And Minamo|
Yomi is the average girl; she worries about her weight, worries about school and her future. Yomi is the more down to earth character which is why its so funny she is best friends with Tomo.
Tomo is a spunky, hyperactive, easily offends, loud, and one of the air head characters. Tomo won't leave Yomi's side, she loves to compare sizes, the only reason she was able to get in the same school as Yomi is because she worked her butt off for the entrance exam; just to prove Yomi wrong.
Osaka; how to explain her? Osaka is a country girl from Osaka; but even there she was weird. Osaka is very slow, falls asleep in class, and listens to everything Tomo says.
Kagura doesn't show up until year 2; Kagura is the average tomboy girl, she loves sports, being outside, getting tans. Kagura believes Sakaki and her are rivals, but Sakaki doesn't really care. Kagura will try to beat her in anything like sports down to eating the fastest.
Sakaki is a tall beautiful girl. Sakaki is naturally good at sports, has a great figure, and is good at most things. What she doesn't tell people is she wishes to be shorter and cute like Chiyo, she loves kittens and you find out they hate her, and becomes best friends with Chiyo and her giant dog.
Chiyo; well there isn't much to tell she is a perfect genius that is 10 years old and got in high school, she loves cooking playing with her dog, she wishes she was taller and cool like Sakaki, and deals with child problems of being in high school.
Kaori and Kimura; Kaori is energetic but her main plot is trying to be with Sakaki. Kimura is a major pervert whom loves high school girls, but gets a crush on Kaori and freaks her out throughout the series.
Yukari and Minamo; Yukari is the English home room teacher best friends since childhood with Minamo. Yukari is lazy, late, always comparing herself to Minamo. Minamo is the gym and home room teacher for another class. Minamo is the responsible type, but still wants to enjoy life, always taking care of Yukari, and going on trips with Yukari and the girls to the beach. Get Minamo drunk and she says things she shouldn't especially in front of a ten year old girl.

One day he finds Chi in the trash; a very life like Persocom (Chobit) which you find out later is a super computer Persocom that is very unknown. Chi has had her Operating System erased and yet still can move unlike most Persocom. At first all Chi can say is chi, and Hideki has to teach her everything as if she is a child, even dressing herself. Hideki could buy learning software but he can't afford it, besides what fun would that be.
Through out the season there will be perverted jokes, but this is what i like about anime yes the main thing you notice is perverseness or humor, yet good anime has a hint of a background story. You see Hideki's friends are each affected by Persocom love that either ruins there relationships or make them feel inadequate. Hideki starts to feel love for Chi, and she reads these mysterious books that help her learn her feelings. Hideki has to decide is it right to love a Persocom or should he try to find love in humans. This anime will have you laughing out loud to the perverseness, going awww to Chi's cuteness, and crying for loves sake, and rooting for them both. I hope you fellow blogger's and friends watch this show and give it a true chance before your offended by its perverseness.
What the third impact means is that there was this angel that fell to earth which created the 2nd impact or the destruction of earth. the 3rd impact is when an angel gets close enough to Adam the first angel, which will finally cause the destruction of humanity.
The 3 kids are unstable; and no more than Shinji; his father Gendo Ikari is the commander of Nerv and has never paid attention to Shinji since his mother died. The first episode is Shinji finally seeing his father after years, Shinji is the 3rd child that can connect with Evangelion. You find out Shinji is a introvert, and does whatever he is told because he thinks has no choice and wants to please everyone. Throughout the series you learn how unstable these kids really are, towards the end Asuka goes through a breakdown and can't connect with her unit anymore, you learn more about Rei's past, and final two episodes is Shinji's realization.

|Top Left to Right: Suigintou, Shinku, Suiseiseki, Souseiseki, Hinaichigo, Kanaria, Kirakishou, Barasuishou.|
Hey folks here to tell another of my favorite anime; Rozen Maiden. Rozen Maid has two plots the main being the dolls, you see there are these dolls created by Rozen. The 7 dolls have to fight each other in the "Alice Games", in the Alice Games the dolls have human hosts that they take there energy from. the reason they fight is to be the perfect doll to Rozen or "Father".
The second plot is about Jun a boy who shuts himself from society, refuses to go to school, and has a hobby of buying weird artifacts on the internet and giving them back before having to be paid for. Rozen Maiden has 3 seasons first season is more about Jun and him being able to befriend these dolls. the second season is more about the plot about Rozen and the Alice Games. The third season is just two OVA episodes.
This anime is very depth in emotion, sadness, and has humorous scenes. Example: when Jun first finds Shinko and there living together a while she decides that the toilet will be her throne, Hinaichigo laughs and Jun laughs, Jun whispers what it is for; Shinko's cheeks get so red its very cute, i should explain that Shinko is a bossy doll and is very proper. This anime will have you delved into its story that you wont stop watching until the end. I suggest definitely to watch this anime.
harem style manga, it starts out with Alexis and Sandy two men in college, and Echiboo Sandy's perverted hamster. Echiboo gets Sandy and Alex in trouble and gets them kicked out of the dorms. The college there says they have to live in a dorm the first year of college; so they search for a dorm, they find a flier for Aoi House must love manga and anime, the two nerds go and apply for the dorm.
The two instantly get in right away, but the manager (Elle) gets in and finds out there not gay. You see its not really Aoi house but Yaoi House. In order to be in the club you have to be gay or a girl into gay manga.
I suggest purchasing this manga, but here's a link with the web comic so you can see for yourselves. Aoi House Web Comic Aoi House Music Video

Guess who finds it, that's right Light; reading the rules in it he at first doesn't believe it. Light first tries the death note on a guy who is holding people hostage; then confirms it on the news. Light starts getting obsessed and killing as many criminals he can, thinking he is this great person creating a better world. After a while Interpol and the worlds greatest detective L work together to figure out who is killing everyone, they even name Light; Kira from the English word killer.
I don't want to ruin the rest of the series for you, this anime has suspense, some humor, sorrow, and a whole set of emotions. this anime is well done and is one season long 26 episodes, they made a live action movie but I haven't seen it. I definitely suggest at least watching this once through, then a second time to fully understand it.
Mitsukuni, Kyouya, Tamaki, Haruhi, Hikaru and Kaoru, Takashi.
Character Description: Mitsukuni the cute childlike boy,
Kyouya the cool business sense guy.
Tamaki the oblivious king of the club,
Haruhi the smart loving girl,
Hikaru and Kaoru the mischievous "gay" twins,
Takashi the strong silent protector.
The Host Club is a group of high school boys that swoon and pamper to high school girl fantasies just for the fun of it. Okay back to the story Haruhi is forced to be there slave until she pays off the vase at this point no one realizes she is a girl. Haruhi's glasses fall off and they see her pretty eyes and decide to make her a new member of the team to pay off the vase, of course Tamaki the oblivious king is last to find out she is a girl; which is a funny episode because this is when he first sulks in his corner. through out the series there are a lot of jokes flirting and for you girls; in the anime you never know which guy she ends up with you have to read the manga. There is a hint of of another theme she teaches each of them a different lesson, Tamaki to love, Kyouya to realize he is better than just the youngest brother, The twins to realize they have true friends outside themselves.
All in all; this is a short one season anime that I love; and I suggest that you watch and purchase it.
