Shugo Chara Doki

Shugo Chara Doki 51 episodes
This is the sequel to Shugo Chara. New characters and charas introduced and re-introduced like Lulu and Nagahiko , development of love triangle between Tadase x Amu x Ikuto, the real deal about Easter and embryo at the ending and painfully lot of fillers in between them all. It's become less and less reverse harem and it was very tedious to watch. It had it's high moments too but it would have been great if it it was squeezed in maybe 13 episodes if the ending was going to be that preposterous and so out of the blue. Well it is targeted to kids but it was such a disappointment coming from the fun and promising first season. File under related. I still can't make the tags appear every post something to do with how I butchered my html. -.-

NAA Couple

Rayne won again! Two years I ran a poll while the first season of Neo Angelique Abyss was still airing. I decided to include this again since there were a development with the characters. Not all the characters are into Angelique by the way like Matthias and Erenfied. And we also have two android bishies: Jet and JD. This is another Neoromance otome with anime and manga adaptations and in she ain't chose anyone after two seasons. If people will have their own way she'll really end up with Rayne and I think the story was biased in his favor. Thanks for the 209 peeps who voted!

Rayne 118 (56%)
Nyx 30 (14%)
Hyuga 26 (12%)
Jet 11 (5%)
Roche 11 (5%)
JD 4 (1%)
Erenfried 3(1%)
Mathias 3 (1%)
Rene 2 (0%)
Bernard 1 (0%)

Summer 2010

No new animes for the summer. :( We only have one reverse harem drama to look forward to in September which is 'Sungkyunkwan Scandal'. Maid-Sama (up to 26 eps only) and Yume Pati (up to 50 eps) are still airing. I have about two months to catch up on my backlog!
