When I first heard of the anime called “Sumomomo Momomo,” I immediately thought of Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo! Apparently there’s no actual connection behind the similar names. Sumomomo Momomo actually falls into the genre of “loli girl wants to make babies with unwilling guy.” But can any anime really be better than Rizelmine?

So Otome wa Boku ni Koi Shiteru is kind of like Strawberry Panic, except for one difference: one of the characters is a dude in drag! I’m all for these wacky gender-bending anime. So how does this one compare to the likes of Ouran High School Host Club and Strawberry Eggs?

So Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge, aka Perfect Girl Evolution, aka The Wallflower, is that one anime that’s sorta like She’s All That. Or at least, that’s what I figured it would be. Usually making ugly girls into hot babes consists of one step in movies: take off their glasses. But is it really that easy in anime?

Busou Renkin is yet another shounen manga that is being anime-ified. I could’ve totally used the word “animated” but hey, this is how I roll. So is this more run of the mill shounen or does Busou Renkin actually amount to something?

Red Garden is an anime that takes place in New York. Finding cultural discrepancies is always fun, and the stereotypes that Japanese people make up for Americans are priceless. In addition to this, Red Garden also features a plot! And huuuugggeee noses!
