Animonday

I know this is a day late ^-^;; I plan on doing this every monday. I'd like to give detailed reviews of each Anime that I watch. I really enjoy Anime, and hope that you do as well.

The week I'm watching some really cute shows:
Super Gals is about Ran Kotobuki, the self proclaimed "world's greatest" gal. The whole series is about her misadventures with her friends Miyu Yamazaki, Aya Hoshino, Rei Otahata, and Yuya Aso. I really enjoy the energy of the show, and how upbeat it is for the most part. It also give cute galspeak lessons, and "ironclad" rules for gals. Overall This show is very enjoyable. I would highly recommend watching this in Japanese with subs rather than the English dub, as I personally find some of the English voices to be very off character and distracting. There are a total of 52 episodes in this series.

Ojamajo Doremi
This series is about an elementary schooler, Doremi, who wanders into a magic shop and accidentally discovers a real witch. The witch, Majo Rika, is turned into a frog and to change back she has to make Doremi a witch aprentice. Doremi is very clumsy and not that good at magic which earns her the title of Ojamajo, loosely translated it means bothersome witch. She is found out by her two friends by the end of the second episode, and they end up joining her in becoming witches. This show ran on Fox kids for a while, but the English dub is very very watered down and highly edited, so please watch this subbed. It's a very good show to get younger siblings or newbies interested in Anime. Ojamajo Doremi is a very sweet and again high energy show. While I really enjoyed it Ojamajo Doremi is geared mainly towards a younger audience. So far only the first and second season have been subbed, but the third season is expected to be complete by the end of 2010. There are a total of four season of this show and two movies.

Cardcaptor Sakura
One day Sakura Kinomoto discovers a book, The Clow, in her father's study. It's filled with magic cards which she accidentally releases into the world. The books guardian gives her a key and charges her with returning all the cards back to the book with the help of her friend Tomoyo Daidouji. This show is a definite must watch for any anime fan. Do not watch the English Dub! It is bowdlerized to the point of being unwatchable. Please watch this in Japanese with subs. This show contains 70 episodes and two movies.

That's it for Animonday. I hope that you will enjoy these shows, and if you'd like to recommend a show for next Animonday please leave it in the comments section.
