It seriously sucks in many ways! Too bad because the story idea was actually pretty interesting. But despite its flaws, it had been very enjoyable to watch! The characters had been fun, and I really like the comedy!

Rating: C- SO-SO! Very average and typical whatever!
Favoritism: 2.5/5 hearts = AVERAGE

The story revolves around high school student Akira Nikaido, a typical slacker living a normal life. That is, until he meets the mysterious Shirogane, a man who suddenly appears and tells him that they have a destiny together. When Akira hears this, he is shocked and doesn’t believe a word of it. Aya, a friend of Akira, forgets something in the school one night, and asks Akira to help her and go find it. He agrees, and while there, he gets attacked by a shadow monster. Shirogane convinces him that the balance between the human world and the shadow world has been distorted and that Akira must become a “shin”- a creature of the shadow world- in order to help restore the balance. The anime has shonen-ai themes which are completely absent from the manga. (Wikipedia)

The Prince and the Pauper

This story is one of my favorites during childhood and recently I got curious on what the original material was like. It didn’t exactly meet my expectations though, but it had been pretty impressive. It’s certainly a wonderful story!

Rating: B- NICE! It had been really fun!
Favoritism: 3 out of 5 hearts = LIKE

Eventually, all ends well, with Edward restored to the throne and Tom retaining a place in his court. (School Library Journal)

She meets a captivating freshman named Mariya who fits her criteria — except her seemingly ideal mate happens to be a cross-dressing sadistic boy. (MyAnimeList)

The book is actually full of contracts that his grandmother made to trap ghosts. As one ghost after another shows up, Natsume tries to release or help them — even while many of them seek vengeance on him. (Anime News Network)

Kuroshitsuji

Kuroshitsuji
aka Black Butler

of A-1 Pictures

One awesome gothic crack series! Story had potential but turned out to suck pretty badly. At least the main character made up for many of the flaws. He’s indeed one hell of a butler!

Rating: C OKAY! Not that great but isn’t bad either!
Favoritism: 7.5 hearts out of 10

Yana Toboso draws the original Kuroshitsuji manga about Sebastian Michaelis, an impeccable butler who can carry out practically any task his master requires of him — partly because he is a demon. His current master is Ciel, the Phantomhive family head who is smart, business-savvy, and all of 12 years old. (ANN)
