Fu fu fu.....Just found another 2 awesome animes to watch. *drumroll.......*
ANIME 1 - GUILTY CROWN
The story of Guilty Crown
is set in Tokyo, 2039. After the outbreak of the unidentified virus "Lost Christmas" in 2029, Japan has been under the control of a multinational organization called GHQ. Ouma Shu is a 17 year old boy whose life changes after he meets a girl named Yuzuriha Inori, a member of a resistance guerrilla group. He acquires an ability called the "power of kings" that allows him to draw out weapons from another person. (There are criterias as to from whom he can draw out these weapons but will be explained in the anime
.) He reluctantly joins the guerilla resistance group, "Funeral Parlor" which aims to restore Japan's independence from GHQ.
Guilty Crown has been compared to Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion. I do see some similarities (ie: school boy protagonist, resistance cell, mechatech, supernatural powers) but overall both animes are pretty different. Code Geass is way darker, and speaks of deception and manipulation while Guilty Crown, up til now, speaks of resistance and hope.
Why I like Guilty Crown :
1) Most important (for moi), great artwork and special effects
2) Plot is a bit typical but then we're only at episode 6. Who knows, Guilty Crown may spring an awesome plot and blow us out of our pants like CG.
3) Though currently a bit predictable, it still managed to get me all excited and anticipating the next moment
4) I foresee some good drama in this anime on top of the action
Oh, the protagonist - Ouma Shu - bears an uncanny resemblance to Sora of Kingdom Hearts. So cuteeeee...... :)ANIME 2 - UN-GO
The second will be UN-GO, which is a detective series. It has some supernatural factors in it, which kinda reminds me of another equally awesome anime, Psychic Detective Yakumo. IMO, it's not as good (yet) as Yakumo, but still worth watching.
The setting of the story is a postwar, future Tokyo that still bears the scars of war. Ruling the land is Media King Rinroku Kaishou, who through politics and industry has the communications infrastructure under his thumb. Kaishou uses the art of deduction and the massive amount of information at his fingertips to lead to the solution of a great number of cases. But there's an underside to Kaishou's brilliant deduction work, which is that Shinjuurou Yuuki is the one who actually uncovers "the truth" in those cases.
However, the public doesn't know this and thus refers to Shinjurou as the "Defeated Detective". Still, Shinjuurou, together with Inga, can't help but search for the truth.
The true mystery, for moi, besides the regular case solving, would be who is Inga and how did he/she came into Suinjirou's life. All we know at this point was that Inga had saved Shinjirou.
So f-list, if you are bored and do not mind chasing for weekly episodes, do give the above 2 animes a try. ^_^
