Guess who’s back? Well of course a batch of new spring anime, but also we see the dramatic return of DJcream giving the rundown of what to expect from it. From cute girls in high school, to cute girls in mechs, to cute girl mages, to cute girls…meh you get the idea. Tengen Toppa Gurren-LagannEpisodes seen:

Simon is his one of his underground village’s best diggers, while Kamina is one of the village’s most infamous delinquents. By fate, they come together and fight off and massive a massive foreign invader and find themselves above the surface…where many more of those massive enemies just lurk within the shadows.
For a GAINAX production, I haven’t had this much fun since watching FLCL. The story is unique and is carried along with a bunch of interesting characters. The choice in enemy design is something new and awesome; however, the look to Simon’s mech is very lackluster and less ingenious than the rest of the series. For a fun adventure title, this is definitely something I love to kick off the anime season.Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha StrikerSEpisodes seen: 1Who should watch it:

Taking place 10 years after Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Girl Nanoha A’s, Nanoha, Hayate and Fate are now working for the Time-Space Administration Bureau. With a bunch of new recruits, the team must work together to save the dimensions.
For someone who hasn’t been following the previous Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha series, it felt a little ackward jumping in blind. It took a while for this new viewer to finally get that all the girls are mages in training. Despite having an anime crush on Subaru (the Yuffie-looking chick on rollerblades), I am not hooked upon its first showing.HitohiraEpisodes seen:

Anyone who loves an old-fashioned high school drama/comedy
Stage fright is a common fear among many people, but with Asai Mugi the case is so extreme that her lips will move but nothing will ever come out. Despite this impediment, a few upperclassmen, whom she just met, assures that she can finally overcome her extreme case upon entering the Drama Research Society.
Here’s a really cute series that fit every criteria of the everyday high school anime. Despite the generic disproportion of girls to guys, multicolored hairstyles, and every student stereotype present (including questionable sexual orientations), the show is still a whole lot of innocent fun to watch. Gambatte Asai-chan!
