Blood+ begins with our main heroine, Saya, flipping out and killing people in Vietnam. She kills some sort of bat monster, and then she goes after the inhabitants.
Kamichu! is an anime about a middle school girl, Hitotsubashi Yurie, who has just become a god. I guess in the world of Kamichu, that’s not so uncommon. At first, she’s not exactly sure what kind of god she is. She decides on using "kamichu!" as her cool magic word, because she’s a god (kami) and a middle school student (chuugakusei). With the help of her friends, she discovers that she can control wind. Unfortunately, she only finds out after she summons a typhoon to wreck her city…
Mushishi begins with an explanation of what a “mushi” is. Apparently they’re not animal, vegetable or mineral, and we humans have reason to fear them.

Karin is a normal high school student with a secret (who isnâ€™t!?): her whole family consists of vampires. Unfortunately for her, she seems to be lacking in the vampire skills department.
